C23 WGCU FM has won a 2018 National Murrow Award for Breaking News reporting in 2017 for its coverage of Hurricane Irma. The award was announced June 20 by the Radio Television Digital News Association. As a member of the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network, WGCU is one of 13 public radio stations that reach 99 percent of Florida residents during statewide emergencies. In the days surrounding the storms landfall in September in Southwest Florida, WGCU FM provided top-of-the-hour one-minute weather updates, from statewide reporters at various locations and its own local reporters stationed at the Collier County and Lee County Emergency Operations centers. During the storm, WGCU provided 24-hour wall-to-wall coverage. To accomplish this and accomplish it well, as indicated by the National Murrow Award required stationwide cooperation among news staff, broadcast engineers and others. For plenty of staff members during Irma, this meant living at the WGCU studios, in many cases with family members and pets included. I could not be prouder of the people who toughed it out through this storm, living at the station and bringing vital information to people during Hurricane Irma, said News Director Julie Glenn. I felt like we did a good job and being recognized at a national level for it is just incredible. The stations general manager praised the work of the entire WGCU staff.

COMMENTARYThe borderOnce, the Mexican border ran up to the Arkansas River about 25 miles south of the Nash Ranch in Colorado where my mother grew up in the 1920s, s and s. But the U.S. government beat the hell out of the Mexicans in a 19th century war to make sure Coloradoans didnt have to live near the border. They left that for Texans and other poor fools to enjoy, today. Under President James K. Polk we snatched everything south of the Arkansas all the way to the Rio Grande River. In those days nobody much lived where my family still owns land except the people who owned it first: the Ute Indians. After we whipped Mexico, we shoved the last Utes out in about 15 minutes, apparently. Which is why theyre my mountains now. Thinking about this recently I came to a simple conclusion: Borders change. History is a border in itself, a thing made by humans and therefore mutable, like religion. So whats the point of history, or the past? For Americans, the answer is easy: to draw the borders of our future. If we can look clearly and honestly at what happened once when we made borders, we wont repeat our mistakes. Borders, after all, are not just lines in the sand. A border is also a cultural stance, a definition of character, an ethical perimeter and the practices that define it. Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free remains indelibly a part of our American border, impractical now or not as real as the Rio Grande or the Georgia-Florida line. When my mother and father were teenagers, the French border was the Maginot line. The German border was as far east or west as the Germans could operate tank and infantry divisions. The British border was the English Channel. The Soviet and Japanese borders ranged all over the map from the Ukraine to Asia. Those were distinct and fluid borders whose citizens and leaders practiced a variety of ethics, none of which included taking huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Americans adopted that border policy as our own, unofficially, beginning 133 years ago this month, on June 17, 1885. On that day, the Statue of Liberty arrived in New York Harbor, from France. It came into an imperfect but improving American world. Only 25 years earlier, in 1860, 4 million African slaves had lived in the country. After we nearly destroyed each other freeing them in the Civil War, we continued to destroy Native Americans or shuffle them off to reservations. We also kidnapped their children and sent them to Christian schools to eradicate their languages and cultures. Meanwhile, the single greatest immigration in our history was about to begin: Between 1890 and 1924, 24 million immigrants flooded in. Established Americans didnt like it, so Congress established our first quota system in 1924. But we based it on the 1890 census. A lot more people with blond hair and blue eyes had entered the country 35 years earlier. Americans blamed Italians and eastern Europeans for murder and mayhem in the streets, until Southern blacks began moving to Northern cities. Then white Americans blamed them, taking the focus off the swarthy Europeans. Those arent my opinions. Those are demonstrable facts. The quota system was self-consciously xenophobic, Professor Jeff Adler told me a few months ago, speaking from his office at the University of Florida in Gainesville. We wanted more people with blond hair and blue eyes. In that world, children often suffered terrible experiences. So Im surprised now when people lets call them liberals describe President Trumps zero-tolerance behavior at our southern borders as un-American. In historic terms, kidnapping thousands of children from their undocumented parents seems almost as American as apple pie. So does his massive falsifying of information about todays immigrants from Central America and Mexico. Since 2015, when Trump hit the campaign trail, hes insisted that illegal immigrants are now killing, raping and hurting Americans almost en masse stealing our jobs, joining murderous gangs, taking over our cities, spoiling our language and traditions. And none of its true, just as it wasnt true of immigrants a century ago. Heres what Trump said in recent days, blaming undocumented immigrants: Sixtythree thousand Americans since 9/11 have been killed by illegal aliens. This isnt a problem thats going away, its getting bigger. Thats more deaths than the total inscribed in the Vietnam Veterans Memorial: 58,317. Its also bullshit. Whether you list to port or starboard in your politics, why should you accept such bald-faced lying from an American president? Lying makes nothing better. Chicken Little screaming, The sky is falling, the sky is falling! makes nothing better. The sky is not falling. Here are the facts. Studies from conservative, liberal and libertarian think tanks suggest together that crime rates are lower than they have been in decades; that American citizens are much more likely to commit crimes than undocumented or documented immigrants; that the rate of illegal immigration has slowed significantly since 2000; that in Texas in 2015, according to the libertarian Cato Institute, there were 56 percent fewer criminal convictions of illegal immigrants than of native-born Americans, and the criminal conviction rate for legal immigrants was about 85 percent below the native-born rate. In fact, there were 951 homicide convictions in Texas in 2015, 885 of native-born Americans, Cato reported. So theres no excuse none from any honest American of any party for a 21stcentury president who tightens a border by lying egregiously and hatefully about huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Then slaps their children in cages or tents. Theres no future in that border. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

A4 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY OPINIONA NAFTA World Cup?Im totally puzzled: How could the United States, Canada and Mexico have successfully convinced FIFA, the international soccer governing body, to award the 2026 World Cup competition to North America, the first time in history that the hosts will be three different countries? But Mexico, Canada and the United States in a joint venue for a NAFTA World Cup? If President Donald Trump goes along as he has so far, the U.S. could be at war with one or both nations by 2026, or at least have built walls on both borders. Or maybe a wall of prohibitive tariffs once he blows NAFTA to smithereens. Will there be special dispensation for Mexican fans who want to watch a match in the U.S? What will prevent them from slipping off and taking up illegal residence? Im sure that has occurred to the hardliners in the White House, along with the other anti-immigrant bigots. Im just as certain that theyve already come up with a solution: Perhaps they are making plans to seize the children of any soccer fan and hold them hostage, as the U.S. is doing now by wrenching kids away from parents who dare to cross into the U.S. The treatment of these children is the administrations latest way to discourage illegal immigration. If it doesnt do the job, will the administration then take harsher methods, perhaps waterboarding or using North Koreas way to discourage anyone who dares cross their border? If anyone has forgotten, they shoot them. President Trump is following his usual model in placing blame after an uproar has erupted over Americans snatching kids out of their parents arms. Hes claiming he has no choice because of a law that was passed by Democrats. There is no such law, Democrat or otherwise. Its a bald-faced lie. And speaking of usual models, Donald Trump is taking most of the credit for the FIFA award, and perhaps this is a case where one of his tried-and-true tactics did help. In April he sent out this heavy-handed tweet (is that a redundancy?): It would be a shame if countries that we always support were to lobby against the U.S. bid. Why should we be supporting these countries when they dont support us (including at the United Nations)? Whether that did the trick or not, the U.S. excuse me, North America prevailed, beating out Morocco, 134-65. The NAFTA proposal was reinforced by pledges from the sponsors of tremendous crowds and, most importantly, $11 billion in profits. It would be remiss if we forgot that the bidding was slowed by the huge scandal in 2015 that nearly consumed FIFA. The United States, between now and 2026, will have to up its game its soccer game. This years World Cup is being held in Russia. Among the countries not represented is the United States. The U.S. team failed to qualify. There was clearly no collusion there. It did qualify when it came to using whats left of U.S. muscle (translated, dollars) to become the 2026 venue. The Trump administration representatives even were able to convince the other nations that its harsh anti-immigrant policies will not be an impediment. Nor will its anti-ally policies. Bob Franken is an Emmy Award-winning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN.Harvards bias against Asian-AmericansThe Harvard University admissions process appears to be an ongoing microaggression against Asian-Americans. A group called Students for Fair Admissions is suing the school for alleged racial discrimination and has filed documents in federal court making a persuasive case, based on data provided by the school. Harvard denies it, but one of the imperatives of the affirmative action regime in college admissions is that schools never admit what they are doing. The great and good at Harvard will insist that Asian-Americans all be called by their preferred pronouns, but they wont afford them equal treatment in the admissions process. They will upbraid anyone daring to ask an Asian-American where he is from, but will, in effect, hold his ethnic background against him. And they will do it by relying on the stereotype of Asian-Americans as dull, unrelatable model students. According to the analysis of Duke University economist Peter Arcidiacono, an expert for the plaintiffs, an AsianAmerican applicant who is a male, is not economically disadvantaged and has, based on his other characteristics, a 25 percent chance of getting in would see his odds markedly increase if he belonged to another group. His chances of admission would be 36 percent if he were white; 77 percent if he were Hispanic; and 95 percent if he were black. Why is this? Among Harvard applicants, Asian-Americans have the highest average SAT scores and the highest academic index, combining the SAT and high-school performance. Somehow, though, they manage the lowest admission rates. They supposedly fall down on their personal ratings, which includes the question of whether the applicants have a positive personality. It just so happens that, per Harvard, otherwise high-achieving Asian-Americans are beset by chronically negative personalities. Its amazing that they somehow manage to do well in school and extensively participate in extracurricular activities despite their glum outlook and downbeat personas. Alumni interviewers who actually meet them tend to rate them highly. No matter. The Center for Equal Opportunity report notes the contrast between Caltech, which doesnt have affirmative action, and Harvard, which does. At Caltech, Asian-Americans make up more than 40 percent of undergraduates, a proportion that has grown robustly since 2000. At Harvard, AsianAmerican representation is now at 22 percent. A 2013 internal Harvard analysis, according to the lawsuit, said that AsianAmericans would make up 43 percent of admissions if academics alone were the factor. If Harvard applied its own standards to Harvard, it would be appalled by how its disadvantaging members of a minority group. It would encourage protests. It would refer itself for racial bias training. It would apologize and grovel and hope it all could be a teaching moment. But none of this will happen because it could lead to the admission of too many Asians, the scenario that its admissions policies and related subterfuge are designed to prevent. The lawsuit includes an exchange with a teacher at exclusive Stuyvesant High School in New York City who breaks down and cries when shes shown data on how much less likely her Asian students are to make it into Harvard. Shes upset by the unfairness of it would that Harvard felt the same way.

GUEST COMMENTARYGet ready for a brave new world BY DAVE TRECKERWere surrounded by wonders every day. But as Sinatra famously sang in the s, The best is yet to come. And it is. Just around the corner are marvels that will transform everything. Quantum computers. Gene therapy. Piezoelectricity. Unheard-of advances in robots and drones. How we grow our food is changing. Gene editing has given us tomatoes that dont spoil and melons whose taste can be dialed from sour to sweet. Meat produced in fermenters clean proteins grown from cultured cells is only years away. Cells from one live cow, we are told, will be enough to make 175 million quarter pounders. Then there are urban farms, vertical warehouses in the middle of cities that use LED lights and automated irrigation to grow everything from peas and spinach to lettuce and kale. Using stackable soil-free trays, 16 acres of food can be grown on a floor measuring an eighth of an acre. And the market is right next door. Clothing is taking on new functions. Power suits are being developed from fabric with built-in threads that convert movement, like walking, into energy. Called piezoelectricity, this phenomenon will enable people to recharge mobile phones or power a flashlight without a plug-in outlet. (For her senior engineering project, my eldest granddaughter devised a coat containing piezoelectric sensors to help guide the visually impaired.) Things are looking up for diabetics. Advances include contact lenses that measure glucose levels in eye fluid, using a smart lens connected wirelessly to a mobile phone. No need to draw blood. Even less intrusive are tattoos that respond to UV light, changing color to indicate blood sugar levels, the results transmitted directly to a monitor on your wrist. How about new uses of old technology? Take drones for example. They have progressed from toys to traffic monitors to battlefield weapons. Next up will be mosquito control, where low-altitude pinpoint spraying will keep toxic pesticides away from population centers. Artificial pollination is also being tested, doing the bees one better in spreading pollen on apple and peach orchards, blueberries and almond trees. And defense uses are proliferating. Most impressive is development of high-altitude drones for early missile detection just in case the talks with North Korea fail. Less exciting, but with huge potential, is the use of drones as everyday delivery vehicles. Why pay for manned trucks when you can use unmanned drones? Faster and eventually cheaper. Clothes, books, even pizza. Australia has found still another use spotting sharks off heavily used beaches. The Federal Aviation Administration estimates there will be 450,000 drones in operation by 2022, up from 110,000 today. Drones are just part of the changing paradigm. By 2030, personal cars will be rare, people instead using rentals and shared vehicles to get from place to place. Driverless cars will be commonplace. The Villages, the massive retirement community near Ocala, already has autonomous taxi service. Driverless retail delivery land-based, not drones is being tested in Miami. And the first flying-car prototype is slated to get off the ground, pun intended, in 2020. Lightweight with multiple rotors powered by batteries and controlled by computers, flying cars are being developed by dozens of companies around the world Uber taxis with wings. Changes are afoot everywhere. In medicine, gene therapy is transforming the treatment of maladies ranging from degenerative eye disease to various forms of cancer. The Food and Drug Administration approved three breakthrough biomeds in 2017, and more approvals are expected this year. In a remarkable bet on personalized medicine, some 300 clinical trials for geneand cell-based drug candidates are being funded. Advances are also being made on non-addictive pain meds, molecules that avoid the troublesome opioid receptors. Successful Phase 3 testing, now underway, will open the door for replacing morphine, oxycodone and fentanyl. While this is impressive, the greatest wonder of all may be quantum computing. Unknown to most, quantum computing draws on the principles of quantum mechanics, using multistage systems to speed problem-solving almost exponentially. It makes conventional computers look like horse-drawn carriages. A recent Wall Street Journal article hailed it the computer that could rule the world. The hype is impressive. Once harnessed, it is said quantum computing will have the power to open the encrypted secrets of every country, company and person on the planet. It will enable access to worldwide finance and weaponry and transform the development of everything from plastics to solar energy. As you might imagine, heavy hitters from around the world are scrambling to develop the technology. IBM has a supercomputer that can perform 200,000 trillion calculations per second. The Chinese, backed by massive government money, expect to have a machine capable of performing 1 million trillion calculations per second by 2020. A brave new world? You bet. You wont recognize the old one. A Ph.D. chemist, Trecker is a retired executive of Pfizer. He serves on a number of local boards. Follow his blog at www.theresidentscorner.com.TRECKER

Enjoy! 1) See a sunset from a tiki bar: Experience a Florida sunset sitting on an Adirondack chair at TTs Tiki Bar, right on the Harborwalk along the Peace River in Punta Gorda. Its even better if youre downing a Bushwhacker a pia colada with ice cream, rum and coffee liqueur.2) Savor the chocolate cake at Hooters: Yes, we all know the real reason guys go to Hooters the wings, right? Ummm, yeah, sure. But theres another reason a decadent chocolate mousse cake so rich and delicious, it will make you forget the waitresses.3) Go to Siesta Key Beach: Theres a reason why Siesta Key Beach, in Sarasota on the Gulf of Mexico, is consistently ranked one of the top 10 beaches in the world. The sand, made of quartz, feels like refined sugar under your feet and always stays cool.4) Visit the Ringling: The campus housing The Ringling the state art museum of Florida, named for circus magnate John Ringling also includes a fascinating circus museum, as well as Ca dZan, Mr. Ringlings opulent mansion.5) Ride on an airboat: Theres nothing that says Old Florida like an airboat.

Its a terrific way to head about 30 miles off the coast, you pretty much catch something and its inexpensive compared to a small-boat charter. Its about $70 for a six-hour trip; night snapper fishing is about $80. Advice: Tip your crew well.10) Go to the beach until you see the green flash: The writer of this missive has seen it three times since 1978. It lasts a millisecond but is life-altering.11) Hatch out a gator: One of the most special attractions in the state of Florida lies on U.S. Highway 27 in Palmdale: Gatorama.

It can be very exciting to speak out and intellectualize in public. You will be glad you did you may even learn something.19) Sex on the beach: OK, so be careful not to break the law on this one. In fact, public sex could get you in trouble. But have you considered pitching a tent, getting a room at a hotel on the beach or renting an AirBNB that puts you right off the sand and water? You will be forever able to say you did it right here in paradise. 20) Visit Ted Smallwoods Store in Chokoloskee and decide for yourself if its haunted by the ghost of Edgar J. Watson. A cold-blooded killer who came to this small Everglades town to escape the law, he became a sugar farmer. After murdering his own employees, townspeople killed him in 1910. His body was buried on Rabbit Key, then later exhumed and buried in Fort Myers. Some say his spirit came home to Smallwoods.

Upriver, such as in Brownville Park in Arcadia, treasures close to the surface range from about 10,000 to 2.5 million years old. Fossilized mammoth bone and shark teeth are not uncommon finds. To go requires a $5 permit (to apply, visit floridamuseum.ufl.edu/vertpaleo/amateur-collector/fossil-permit/). You can also go with a guide such as Mark Renz. One of Mr. Renzs most amazing finds on the Peace: nearly half the fossilized remains of a giant sloth. 31) After a day at the beach, get homemade ice cream at Love Boat: Its small original location near Fort Myers Beach at 16229 San Carlos Blvd. is the best, but they also have a larger new one a few blocks away. They are also at 1700 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel Island. 32) Need some speed? Gas up your daily driver or that hot weekend sports car in your garage and head on down to the Buckingham airfield for a weekend with the Gulf Coast Autocrossers.

The next one is September; they take the summer off. 33) Get your Belgian on: The Belgian Monk in downtown Punta Gorda has all things Belgian, that is, if youre looking for craft brew, frites and release from guilt.

You need to sit on the outside porch over the water, where men move commercial boats slowly p ast from time to time. 60) Night symphony in the Fakahatchee Strand: All you need to pick up the rhythm of the planet going back thousands of years: a hammock, a mosquito net, loose long-sleeved clothes with an extra shirt, a hat, a knife, some rope and a gallon of water. In the 85,000-acre Fakahatchee strand near Copeland you can come to understand the western Everglades in one night. You just listen to the symphony of hungers, imperatives, inevitabilities and life-cycles. Its a music composed in chirps, hums, clicks, croaks, calls, whistles, cries and the sonorous and ancient murmur of wind through the cypress or oaks. Its a music of everything the subtropics still cradle. 42 93 36 15 13 87 30

Seen from the beach after nightfall in the littoral zone, usually where the waves break or turbulence occurs, the water appears bejeweled in gemstone mats afloat on the rolling surface, a condition that affirms life more certainly than the most luminous words.62) See a snail kite at Harns Marsh: Only a couple thousand are left in the wild, apparently, but you can see a few here: Harns Marsh, shouldering against Lee County Mosquito Control on the east side of the old Buckingham Army Airfield, public property owned by the East County Water Management District, in Lee County. This is at the headwaters of the Orange River. Bigwinged birds chocolate brown or darker in color, they have a single broad splash of white across the tail. They eat apple snails almost exclusively.63) Dr. Jose Padilla Lopezs Six Mile Cypress birding trips: Imagine hearing those whistles, chirps, tweets and songs all your life and finally being able to say authoritatively (without seeing the whistler, chirper, or tweeter): Thats a Carolina wren. Or, Thats a cardinal. Or Thats the rare African pin-tailed whydah, a small songbird native only to sub-Saharan Africa must have been blown in on the wind. Now you can. Well, we wont promise the pin-tailed whydah, but most other birds that frequent our subtropics, yes. Just find the Six-Mile Cypress Slough website, look up Dr. Lopezs once a month birding walks on the boardwalk, and show up when he starts. Animated, articulate and modest, hes been all over the world looking at birds, and hell show you. 64) Catch a spring training baseball game: Is there anything more American than a baseball game in a small stadium with hot dogs, ice cream, beer, popcorn and PEEEEAAAnuts, get your PEEEEAAnuts, heah!?

JetBlue has an exact replica Green Wall so the beefy boys of Boston Red Sox summer will feel at home, apparently; at the CenturyLink has, well, a beautiful diamond and a lot of seats home of the Minnesota Twins spring training extravaganza.

So, CBC News reported on June 13, Cote launched his own experiment. He collected two samples using his own inner-cheek swabs, and a third from his girlfriends Chihuahua, Snoopy, and sent them off to Viaguard Accu-Metrics. The results indicated that all three samples had identical DNA, including 12 percent Abenaki and 8 percent Mohawk ancestry. I thought it was a joke, Cote said. The company is fooling people ... the tests are no good.Public servantsIn Putnam County, the sheriffs office provides a wide variety of services. So when Douglas Peter Kelly, 49, called the office on June 12 to complain that the methamphetamine he had been sold was fake, officers happily offered to test it for him. Kelly told detectives he had suffered a violent reaction after smoking the substance and wanted to sue the dealer if he had been sold the wrong drug. He arrived at the sheriffs office and handed detectives a clear, crystal-like substance wrapped in aluminum foil, the offices Facebook post explained, according to The Washington Post. It field-tested positive for methamphetamine. On the spot, Kelly was arrested and charged with possession of meth. The Facebook post continued: Remember, our detectives are always ready to assist anyone who believes they were misled in their illegal drug purchase.What is art? As part of the Dark Mofo art festival, Australian performance artist Mike Parr, 73, entered a steel tomb below busy Macquarie Street in Hobart on June 14, where he meditated, drew and read as traffic flowed overhead for 72 hours until his release on June 17. Parr had water but no food, and oxygen was pumped into the box. His performance was promoted as a response to 20thcentury totalitarian violence, according to The Guardian, but the piece didnt speak to everyone. I dont take anything away from it at all, said Carolyn Bowerman from Townsville. Im just amazed that someone would put themselves through this and go to this much effort. In a previous performance art piece, Parr hacked at a prosthetic arm with an ax before a shocked audience. In Melbourne, Australia, customers of the Prahran neighborhood Woolworths store will have to park somewhere else on July 9, as renowned American photographer Spencer Tunick captures thousands of willing nudes in a group shot on the stores rooftop parking lot.

The candies were cannabis edibles, and the employees became sick after consuming them. Police arrived to find one of them lying in the parking lot, and both were transferred to the hospital, according to the Associated Press.

A18 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESPage turners for pet lovers BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationSummer reading can be an escape, an education, an entertaining way to while away a few hours or all of the above. If youre a pet owner, you have an astonishingly wide array of literary pleasures and educational treasures awaiting you during long, lazy days of vacation or simply while youre waiting for the kids to get out of day camp. The following new releases cover all the bases: mystery, science, photography, behavior and humor. In Fear on Four Paws, book seven in Clea Simons Pru Marlowe pet noir series, the animal communicator faces a drugged bear, a ferret whos not sharing any secrets, her own crabby tabby and a town whose pets are disappearing. Marlowe herself becomes a person of interest in a murder, and a tempting job offer further complicates the situation. Can she identify the killer and return the missing pets to their homes? Blue cats, big cats, plush cats, silly cats. If your happy place involves looking at pictures of cats, you wont want to miss professional cat photographer Larry Johnsons book Show Cats: Portraits of Fine Felines. In its pages, more than 180 images depict cats in all their glory: color, eyes, ears, tails, coat type, in motion and more. The accompanying text shares information and insights about the cats themselves and the challenges of photographing them. If youd rather see cats trip on nip, look for Andrew Marttilas Cats On Catnip, photographic documentation of the silly, bizarre and delightfully unhinged behaviors cats exhibit under the influence of the herb. How do dogs smell? Frank Rosell set out to answer that question in his book Secrets of the Snout: The Dogs Incredible Nose. He does a terrific job of explaining dogs olfactory obsessions as well as exploring the different types of work dogs do, including finding lost pets, search and rescue, and detecting explosives, pests and diseases. Sniff it out. Ethologist Adam Miklosi brings together anatomy, behavior, biology, evolution and history to present the latest in what we know about dogs. His artand photography-rich book The Dog: A Natural History ranges from the controversies over where and when domestication began to our current dog-loving culture and the attachment between humans and dogs. Marc Bekoffs Canine Confidential: Why Dogs Do What They Do is a fine companion to Miklosi and Rosells books, bringing the latest science on cognition and emotion to canine personalities, play, marking habits and more, including the eternal question: Why do dogs roll in stinky things? I must confess, my co-writers Dr. Marty Becker and Mikkel Becker and I are among the contributors to the next book, From Fearful to Fear Free. Subtitled A Positive Program to Free Your Dog from Anxiety, Fears, and Phobias, it addresses how fear affects the canine brain, types of fears dogs can develop, such as separation anxiety and noise and thunderstorm phobias, and how to use reward-based techniques to reduce or even prevent fear at the veterinary clinic, out in public, on the road and more. Kids who love animals and want to learn more about animal welfare cant go wrong with Beth Adelmans book Dogs and Cats: Saving Our Precious Pets. In easy-to-understand language, she addresses pet overpopulation, breedspecific legislation, genetic diversity, declawing and health problems caused by extreme physical characteristics, to name just a few of the important issues to consider when we live with animals. A quiz and suggested research project at the end of each chapter help readers remember what theyve learned and find out more. In Catnip: A Love Story, Michael Kordas doodles of his cats imaginary lives reading the newspaper, happy hour at the local pub, a Fourth of July celebration are a joyful and humorous representation of the love for cats he and his wife shared. Pets of the Week>> Blue is a two-year-old male brown and white terrier bully mix. He weighs about 55 pounds, is very handsome, and likes to run and explore. >> Cu is a one-year-old female white and black domestic long hair. She has big yellow eyes and is a friendly purr machine that loves to be petted. >> Ike is a one-year-old male orange tabby and white domestic short hair. He is a little shy at rst, but warms up quickly and gets along with other cats. >> Godiva is a three-year-old female brown and white terrier bully mix. She is beautiful, friendly and weights about 46 pounds. She likes to cuddle and enjoys belly rubs. To adopt or foster a petThis weeks pets are from Collier County Domestic Animal Services. Adoption fees for cats range from $20 to $60 and dogs from $30 to $80. Fees include sterilization surgery, vaccinations, pet license, ID microchip and a bag of food. Visit DAS at 7610 Davis Blvd. from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Adoptable dogs and cats from DAS are also at For Footed Friends in Marquesa Plaza on Livingston Road from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. the rst Saturday of every month.

Offer Expires 7/5/18 HEALTHY LIVINGIts all about the kidsCollier County has more than 65,000 children 18 and under whose welfare and education is a major concern for all of us. Paula DiGrigoli, executive director of the NCH Safe and Healthy Childrens Coalition, recently organized the second annual Health and Safety Trends meeting where 80-plus leaders from dozens of organizations shared best practices, progress, and other ways of collaborating to help our next generation. Dr. Carmen Ramos, NCH pediatric surgeon, shared her research titled, Update on Pediatric Trauma in Collier County. Tragically, Collier County experienced three fatal drownings in pre-school-aged children last year but a 33 percent decrease in pediatric drowning-related visits to the three NCH ERs in 2017. Director of the NCH Pediatric Emergency Department, Dr. Pia Myers; director of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Dr. Deb Lopez; and NCH nurse manager of labor and delivery, Cathy Brockman, emphasized our success in taking care of kids close to home, with children now needing to travel only for cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, or other rare specialty care. More than 18,000 children were SEE WEISS, A21 A high-quality diet could yield huge returns for cancer survivors BY UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA HEALTHCancer survivors who consumed a balanced, nutrient-dense diet had a 65 percent lower risk of dying from cancer than survivors who ate a poor quality diet, University of Florida researchers have found. 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 general public have moved toward a total diet approach, such an approach has not been extensively studied among cancer survivors, Dr. 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 cancer o utcomes. 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 from 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 cancer-specific 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 outcomes. Yet, there is no harm in cancer survivors, or anyone, aiming for a high-quality, 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. In addition to Sonawane and Deshmukh, the research team included Shervin Shirvani, M.D., M.P.H., and Anna Likhacheva, M.D., M.P.H., of Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center; Jagpreet Chhatwal, Ph.D., of Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital; and Elizabeth Y.

SUIDs (Sudden Unexpected Infant Death) committee, Safe Kids and Healthy Start programs continue to educate, provide resources and have a positive effect. Collier County Public Schools director of health services Eileen Vargo and coordinator of K-12 health and physical education Tracy Bowen, who partner with many other local groups, explained their ongoing screening for vision, hearing, dental, scoliosis and development disorders.

Collier County Sheriffs Office captain John Wohlbrandt shared that lack of self-control is the greatest predictor of criminal behavior, according to criminologists Gottfriedson and Hirschi. Self-control is principally instilled through effective parenting at the earliest stages of childhood by monitoring childrens behavior, noticing problematic behavior and effectively correcting that behavior.

MONEY & INVESTINGLow interest on Walmart bonds not worthy of investmentWhat do you do if you need a few extra bucks and dont have the money? If it is a small purchase, you may put it on your credit card. If it is something larger, you may have to go to the bank and get a loan. But what if you are a business and need more than a few extra bucks? What if you need $16 billion what do you do then? Walmart recently faced this problem after its acquisition of the Indian E-commerce company Flipkart Group. The solution was to issue corporate bonds to the public in return for the cash needed to fund the purchase. But just what are corporate bonds, how are they priced and issued, and are they a good investment? A bond is simply an investment where the investor loans money to a borrower in exchange for a set interest rate for a given period of time. At the bonds maturity, the investor receives the principal back as well. For bonds issued by corporations, typically interest is paid every six months although some bonds pay quarterly or monthly interest payments. Corporations issue bonds that mature anywhere from less than a year (this debt is often called commercial paper) to 30 years or more. Large companies like Disney or Coca-Cola have even issued 100-year maturity bonds. To issue a bond, a company typically will meet with a bank or investment bank to structure the investment. First, the parties will determine the size of the bond. If the company borrows too much, it may hurt its credit rating or have trouble making the interest payments. If it borrows too little, the borrower may not have the funds to maximize its growth or business opportunities. Second, the company and bank will determine the appropriate maturity for the bonds. Factors such as the use of the funds, overall interest rate environment, and credit worthiness of the borrower all will affect this decision. Finally, the bank will price the bonds. Most bonds are issued at par meaning they are issued at the face value of the bond, often $1,000. The price of the bond is then the interest rate that the buyer of the bond will receive. For example, a company can issue a 10 year bond at par that is priced at an interest rate of 6.2 percent. The interest rate of a corporate bond is determined by two factors. The first is the overall rate environment, typically determined by U.S. government debt rates. The second is the credit worthiness of the issuer, which determines the additional interest that investors demand to hold the bonds over Treasury rates. This spread can be very small for well capitalized and stable companies like Microsoft or Apple or very large for risky biotech firms. After the interest rate of the bonds is set, the investments are sold to the public at the face value of the bonds. Going forward, however, the bonds will trade on the open market and will either trade at a premium or discount to the face value. If overall interest rates go up or the credit worthiness of the company declines, the bonds value will decline as investors sell the bonds to buy more stable bonds or bonds with higher interest rates. Conversely, if interest rates decline or the company credit strengthens, the bonds value will rise as investors buy the bond. In the case of Walmart, several maturities of bonds were offered to investors to fund the staggering $16 billion needed to fund its acquisition. The longest dated bonds, 30 years to maturity, were priced at just 1.05 percent over the 30 year Treasury rate or around 4.1 percent. This very low rate speaks very highly of the credit worthiness of Walmart. However, one of the main bond credit ratings companies, S&P, stated that the companys strong AA credit rating may be placed under review because of the significant acquisitions the company has recently made and the resulting debt issued to pay for them. Therefore, I would be hesitant to tie up my money for 30 years at such a low interest rate and feel that there are plenty of better investments to earn a better risk adjusted return. Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com

Perhaps most prominent is the NCH Baker Hospital Downtown, where Mr. Baker has made a concerted effort to improve palliative care services not just for those in need of end-of-life treatment but also for people who need help managing chronic diseases. The U.S. Army veteran made his fortune shepherding Kohls Corp. into its position of prominence in the retail world. Mr. Schwartz is the president of the Brookdale Foundation Group, a global nonprofit dedicated to advances in the fields of geriatrics and gerontology and to improving the lives of seniors.

Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and well send you some tips to start investing. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Lower Your RiskIt can seem like investing in stocks is a crapshoot, as stocks can go up or down on any given day, but it doesnt have to be so risky. Here are some ways to reduce your risk. 1. Invest for the long haul. Short-term investing is more like speculating or gambling. Being a shareholder means youre a part-owner in a company, so commit yourself to those businesses and aim to stay invested in them as long as they remain healthy and growing. With a long investing period, you can ride out the occasional market downturns that will likely occur. Dont worry about what happens this year if you dont plan to sell for many years. 2. Learn more. The savvier you become about investing, the fewer mistakes youll likely make. Dont buy stocks merely on tips from friends or strangers without even knowing what a company does. Instead, read widely and keep reading. Start with books by Peter Lynch, John Bogle, The Motley Fool or the Little Book series of investing guides. Read Warren Buffetts educational letters to shareholders at berkshirehathaway.com. Hang out at the Fool online (fool.com), reading and asking questions on our discussion boards. 3. Invest only in companies and industries you have studied and undearstand well. Weigh the risks that companies disclose in their financial statements. Consider a stocks valuation. Assess the market capitalization, expected future earnings and price-to-sales and price-toearnings ratios for candidates for your portfolio. Stocks that seem undervalued should offer less downside risk than exciting high-flying stocks. 4. Avoid penny stocks (those costing less than about $5 per share), commodities, futures, day trading, shorting and investing on margin. Those can be risky ways of investing. 5. Consider not investing in any or many individual stocks and just opting for a low-fee S&P 500 index fund. Youll match the markets returns effortlessly.The stock market can be volatile, but over the long run, its one of the most effective ways to build wealth. Before and AfterUgh. My dumbest investment was in an offshore drilling company that was recommended by a TV stock guru. I bought into the stock when the price of a barrel of oil was still in triple digits. I kept adding as the price of oil continued to crash hey! Ill end up with a lower cost basis! I lost a lot of money. Im keeping the shares as a reminder of how not to build up my portfolio. Ive learned a lot since that investment, as Ive spent a lot of time reading The Motley Fool. Before, my IRA was managed by my broker and invested in aggressive mutual funds. Now Im sticking with stock in high-quality companies. Before, I would buy more shares of sinking companies. Now I buy more shares of solidly performing companies even if their prices are going up. Before, Id panic when the stock market retreated. Now I get excited about sale prices. Before, my returns trailed the S&P 500. Now, Ive been outperforming it. C.B., Los AngelesThe Fool Responds: It can be tempting to buy more shares of a falling stock, as it might seem like more of a bargain. But stocks often fall for good reasons. Always dig deeply into the situation before committing any more money. Make sure that any problems you discover seem to be temporary, not permanent, ones. Profitable RelationshipsTheres a fast-growing kind of software out there specializing in customer relationship management (CRM) and the dominant company in the business is salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM). Its systems help companies keep track of and manage their relationships and interactions with customers and potential customers and analyze that data, too. Shares of Salesforce have more than tripled in value over the past five years, and many analysts expect continued robust growth. Why? Well, the market for CRM software is expected to surge from a recent $72 billion to $123 billion by 2021. According to industry analyst IDC, Salesforce gained more market share than the rest of the 20 largest CRM suppliers combined in 2017. The companys market share gains are helping to produce tremendous increases in revenue and cash flow, with Salesforces revenue popping 25 percent over year-ago levels in the last quarter to $3 billion, along with a 25 percent gain in free cash flow, to $1.3 billion. Looking even further ahead, Salesforce is on pace to hit its goal of generating $21 billion to $23 billion in annual revenue by fiscal 2022. Catalysts for further growth include Salesforces incorporation of artificial intelligence in its offerings and its recent acquisition of MuleSoft, which will expand its cloud computing capabilities. Long-term investors seeking growth should take a closer look at Salesforce. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Salesforce.) I trace my roots back to a 1971 spinoff from Columbia Broadcasting System, when I became a public company. I merged with Paramount Communications in 1994 and CBS in 2000, and then split from CBS in 2005. Today Im a creator of television programs, movies, games, podcasts and other consumer products. With a market value recently north of $11 billion, I reach more than 4 billion viewers in 183 countries with my networks, which include Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., MTV, BET, Comedy Central, VH1, TV Land, CMT and Logo. My Paramount Pictures is Americas oldest film studio. Who am I? (Answer: Viacom) Growth or Value?QShould I invest in growth stocks or value stocks which is better? G.G., Portland, OregonAYou dont have to choose one or the other some of the best stocks to invest in are both. Growth stocks are tied to companies that are increasing their revenue and earnings relatively rapidly, while value stocks are tied to companies with market values significantly below what they seem to really be worth. If you find a company thats growing at a solid clip and it seems to be undervalued, thats a very appealing proposition, offering a good chance of stock price appreciation. Its best, overall, though, to favor undervalued stocks. Even if they grow slowly, they offer a mar gin of safety by not being overpriced. ***QAre secondary offerings and subsequent offerings the same thing? K.F., Muskegon, MichiganASubsequent offerings are often called secondary offerings, but the two events are different. When a company goes public, it issues stock in itself via an initial public offering (IPO) on the open market. Its common for insiders or large investors to keep sizable ownership stakes in the company, with only a portion of shares sold in the IPO. If these big investors later sell some of their shares to the public, thats a secondary offering, and the investors collect the sales proceeds, not the company. A subsequent (or follow-on) offering happens if the company wants or needs to raise more money later (perhaps to pay down debt, finance operations or buy another company). It will create and sell new shares, increasing the number of shares outstanding and diluting the value of existing shares. Thats not great for existing shareholders.

A26 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYdetails, there might be many unintended consequences. The current proposal is so broad that it has everyone worried, from component makers to classic car importers. They know the automobile industry requires an international effort. The American Automobile Labeling Act tracks what percentage of automobile parts come from the U.S. and Canada. It requires that manufacturers show the results on the window sticker. Even with these two countries combined, savvy shoppers might notice that even the most American-made American cars struggle to break 70 percent American components. This is proof that todays industry relies on a full global effort tailored to each product. Currently, the Kentucky-made Toyota Camry competes directly with the German-built Buick Regal. The Toyota utilizes 55 percent American/Canadian components, and so its not completely safe from higher duties on car parts. Plus, while the tariffs are meant to bring production of cars like the Buick Regal back to North America, it instead will render it uncompetitive. Three-fourths of its components are sourced from outside U.S. and Canada. The idea is that if the Regal was brought back to North America, then the supply chain would also follow. In reality, thats not likely to be true. This car is viable because its built at a factory that supplies a similar product to Vauxhall in the UK and Holden in Australia. The domestic savings of making the Buick in the U.S. would not outweigh the strains on markets where this platform is more popular. Thus, production and/or components would still not move to America. The resulting tax could re-price the $25,915 Regal to over $30,000 without adding any value to the car. The North American Free Trade Agreement has been a target of trade problems lately. That means its not even safe from exception if higher tariffs are imposed. Not only is the U.S. car industry so tied to Canada that components are listed together on the AALA, but Mexico will always be a key to the U.S. industry. Lower wages south of the border have helped keep small cars viable. Of the top 10 least expensive new vehicles sold in the U.S. today, six of them are built in Mexico including two from Americanbased companies. The Chevrolet Sonic is the only car from this list built in the U.S., and 2018 might be its last model year. Taxing imported parts not only affects new cars, but more expensive car parts will impact one group thats the least able to afford it. Theres a huge aftermarket industry that relies on healthy international trade to do everything from make a tougher 4x4 to a faster muscle car. But theres also a less glamorous (and more everyday) side of this segment. Anyone who has ever fixed his own vehicle or had the local mechanic do it knows the conversation about how one component can have multiple prices. The global market allows lower labor cost countries to assemble and import alternators, starters, tires and much more for less than they can be built and sold domestically. Just like generic medications, theres a sigh of relief when a lower-priced offbrand part can keep cars alive. Rock-bottom products are often inferior, but its good to have that option. After all, a 25 percent increase in a crucial car part for low-income families can easily mean the difference between a repair and weeks of extra struggle. On the other side of the financial spectrum are classic cars. The vehicle import tax proposal is currently so broad that people in the vintage industry are also sounding the alarm. There are current import duties for these older vehicles, but nowhere near a 25 percent hike. This market segment uses cars more for a hobby than a livelihood, and it has a price barrier that starts at the middle class and moves up from there. In fact, since most people are in the hobby with a budget of just a few thousand dollars, they are buying vintage vehicles that are already in the country and not subject to import fees. Thus, if taxes were raised on classic car imports, it would likely create the least amount of harm, but it would also carry the least amount of the tariffs intended consequences. Those most affected by larger classic car import duties would be the large international auction houses, restoration shops and specialty import dealerships. It might also curb the recent trend of buying classic cars as investment in the same way people hold real estate portfolios. So, while additional classic car import duties are likely not a job creator, it might be able to bring in some revenue without hurting the masses.

Overall closed sales were remarkable with 1,024 closed sales during May 2018 compared to 1,027 closed sales in May 2017. Closed sales in May 2018 were higher than all months following May 2017. May also saw inventory levels continue to stabilize, according to the May 2018 Market Report released by the Naples Area Board of Realtors, which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). In 2017, Mays sales increased 23 percent over sales in May 2016, said Phil Wood, president of John R. Wood Properties. The fact that we are keeping the same pace this year and inventory is holding steady is good news as we move into summer. Closed sales of properties in the $300,000 to $500,000 price category during May increased 21 percent over May 2017, while closed sales in the $300,000 and below price category were just one sale short of the number of closed sales in May 2017. There was very good news for buyers in the report as Mays overall median closed price dropped 5 percent to $337,000 from $355,000 in May 2017. Moreover, the overall median closed price for homes priced above $500,000 decreased 14 percent to $507,000 from $590,000 in May 2017. On the high-end side of the market, despite an 11 percent increase in median closed prices, pending sales of properties in the $2 million and above price category increased 23 percent in May 2018 compared to May 2017. We havent seen inventory levels in May this high since 2013, said Mike Hughes, Vice President and General Manager for Downing-Frye Realty, Inc.

B14 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYSecond tower under construction at Kalea BayClub amenity center popular with residentsJust 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 glassenclosed 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 floorto-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.

end of the market would start shrinking after season, but the May report showed inventory increased 6 percent for homes under $300,000. Overall inventory in May rose by 15 properties compared to May 2017. The report also showed inventory rose in May for both single family homes and condominiums priced below $500,000, which accounted for 58 percent of the available market in Collier County at the end of the month. The NABOR May 2018 Market Report provides comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges, and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. According to Dominic Pallini, broker at Vanderbilt Realty, Both median closed prices and days on market for single family homes above $300,000 decreased in May, which may indicate sellers are pricing homes to sell. As broker analysts discussed the inherent necessity for Realtors to work with a seller to help them price a home properly the first time, veteran broker Bill Coffey, broker manager of Amerivest Realty Naples, added that, When I was trained, they told us that 50 percent of our listings wont sell because they are overpriced. But things look better today because Realtors are better trained and can provide more accurate market comparisons to sellers. As a result, sellers can make more informed decisions.Geographically, North Naples continues to be a shining star as the only coastal area in Collier County to report an increase in closed sales for May. Activity in the rural Ave Maria area has increased steadily over the last year; but in May, this area saw its single-family home closed sales skyrocket to 40 percent. Inventory levels in other areas of the nation and Florida are very tight right now, but Naples is enjoying some renewed momentum in our inventory, said Brenda Fioretti, managing broker at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty. When the market is good in other areas of the country, our home sales activity is driven up as outof-staters relocate to the Naples area. I think well see a very strong summer. For those looking to sell a home in Naples, contact a Realtor who has the experience and knowledge to provide an accurate market comparison so you can determine the right asking price.

The crowd for the publishing trade show was packed with the usual suspects bookstore people, librarians and book bloggers out in full force. And then there was the lone Florida Weekly correspondent. Over the course of two-plus days, I navigated hundreds of galley giveaways and author signings. By the end of the event, I had picked up nearly 150 books to add to my library. BookExpo kicked off with a panel featuring six editors discussing books they are eager to get into the publics hands. While theres no requirement that the book be a debut, featured authors cannot be household names yet. More than 30 books vied for the coveted spots. This years winners were heavy on nonfiction. The most intriguing title was The Real Lolita: The Kidnapping of Sally Horner and the Novel that Scandalized the World by Sarah Weinman. Much, of course, has been written about Vladimir Nabokovs Lolita. But Ms. Weinman is the first author to focus on a question Humbert Humbert asks himself towards the end of the book, Had I done to (Lolita) what Frank La Salle did to Sally Horner?

Do you ever have those moments when you realize youre becoming your parents? Lately, Im having plenty of moments where Im pretty sure Im becoming my grandparents. The truth is, Ive always wanted to explore the country on wheels. Wanderlust hit me in my 20s when I knew I didnt have the money for anything fancy, so I pictured converting an old VW bus and putting an air mattress in it easy-peasy, right? I used to dream about hitting the open road and seeing all the nooks and crannies of America. I wouldnt stress myself out with the high speeds and traffic of the interstate instead, Id take the backroads so I could see farms, cows and historic little downtowns. Id learn how to be thrifty, eat out of cans and at night, Id light a lantern and write about my adventures to the sounds of crickets chirping as I was parked next to a stream. But that was years ago. As I matured, I become more and more dependent upon life necessities like air-conditioning. I could truly go without plenty of creature comforts like cable, Wi-Fi, even a phone but air-conditioning is a requirement. Especially as menopause sets in. Trust me. I hadnt thought about my camping dreams in years, when all of a sudden, my husband Todd got a hankering to attend RV shows. Living in South Florida during snowbird season, RV shows are a dime a dozen. It seems that once folks hit retirement age, theyre ready to drive around a home on wheels thats roughly the size of a semi-truck. At RV shows, you see lots of middle-aged men in cargo shorts, New Balance sneakers and baseball caps Todd felt very much at home. We started going to RV shows out of curiosity and discovered that these enormous monstrosities folded out sideways like a gargantuan accordion with just the push of a button. They had big-screen TVs, spacious lanais and could comfortably sleep a family of 40 they werent tiny homes on wheels they were rolling McMansions. We were daunted. Then Todd started researching Airstreams. The practical, compact vintage camper of the mid 1900s hasnt changed that much on the outside, but on the inside, there were all the comforts of home and most importantly, there was air conditioning. We watched lots of YouTube videos on different sizes of Airstreams, joined Facebook groups dedicated to Airstreams (#liveriveted), and I started studying Airstream Pinterest pages in earnest. We fell in love with the idea. And last week, we picked one out that would be easy to hitch up to our SUV for weekend adventures. Our maiden voyage is scheduled for the beginning of July. Unlike the prehistoric van of my youth, our airstream has a comfy memory foam mattress, a microwave, a fully outfitted bathroom and freezing cold, beautiful air-conditioning. It feels more like glamping than camping, but I havent lost that desire to park by a stream and write about my adventures to the sounds of crickets chirping its just that in this dream, I wont need a lantern Ill just turn on a light. stephanieDAVIS email@example.com STEPHANIE DAVIS / FLORIDA WEEKLYStephanie and her husband, Todd, are looking forward to traveling in air-conditioned splendor in their new 22-foot 2016 Airstream Sport.

University Press of Florida. 208 pages. Hardcover, $24.95. The University Press of Florida has published an official series of books about the states role in popular American music. These include Florida Soul: From Ray Charles to KC and the Sunshine Band, Music Everywhere: The Rock and Roll Roots of a Southern Town (about the Gainesville scene) and Elvis Ignited: The Rise of an Icon in Florida, all of which have been reviewed in these pages. Mr. DeYoungs effort is essentially a biography of a relatively unknown giant in the popular music world. Following along the trail Phil Gernhards life, the author paints a vivid picture of the American music industry in the second half of the 20th century. Trained neither as a musician nor a businessman, Mr. Gernhard picked up what he needed to know through hustle and hard work. He began early and by the time he reached 19 had produced a million-copy recording: Stay, a monstrous hit performed by Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs. It was 1960, and Mr. Gernhard had already recorded a few other songs by the same group. Mr. Gernhards career was hardly a straight or unbroken line. He had many ups and downs. Still, he managed to produce an amazing amount of recorded music. A high percentage of those releases became hits, bringing money into the pockets of the musicians, songwriters, studio technicians and owners of record labels. He succeeded through changing times and changing tastes. The author makes it only too clear that Mr. Gernhard was an accomplished and somewhat greedy dealmaker, negotiating contracts that gave him many slices of the pie. Sometimes songwriter credit for doctoring a needy lyric, sometimes a percentage for enhancing production quality, and sometimes simply by writing himself into the contract for being able to put all the pieces together. He was labeled as a producer, and he produced. DEYOUNGSEE FL WRITERS, C12
C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYFred Ebb just had a real gift for writing not only dramatically appropriate music and lyrics, but ear worms that really stick with you, says Charles Fornara, musical director for The Naples Players summer production. The songs All That Jazz, Razzle Dazzle and Roxy among them are in peoples consciousness, Mr. Fornara says. Its a well-known score even for those who wouldnt call themselves Broadway aficionados. The Oscar-winning movie version, which came out in 2002, just broadened its appeal, he adds. Chicago initially opened on Broadway in 1975. Its 1996 revival was even more successful, going on to become the longest-running Broadway revival. In doing research about the show, Mr. Fornaras wife, TNP director/choreographer Dawn Lebrecht Fornara, discovered that each musical number is based on a real-life historical figure. Some are a combination of more than one real-life character, but they all have an historical basis, Mr. Fornara says. Matron Mama Morton, for example, is based on belter Sophie Tucker. In Colored Lights: Forty Years of Words and, Music, Show Biz, Collaboration, and All That Jazz, the oral history of Mr. Kander and Mr. Ebbs long-time collaboration, Mr. Kander says many of the songs are related to specific performers (such as) Eddie Cantor and Bert Williams Mr. Fornara has music directed the show before, including a production in New Hampshire with only seven musicians in the pit. This time, he says, Im doing it with the full orchestra, the full 13, including a player who played it on Broadway for many years and a couple who played it on the national tour. Joe Choomack, who plays tuba and upright bass, was the first-call sub on Broadway, he says. Joining him in the pit will be Paul Buzine on banjo, ukulele and mandolin, lead trumpeter Mark Pettey and lead reed player Jon Rhynard, all of whom played in the orchestra in the shows last national tour. The Fornaras are also directing the TNP KidzAct performance of the musical, set to run Aug. 3-5. Because the musical is presented as a vaudeville show, we asked Mr. Fornara to talk about some of the specific songs from Chicago: The Musical.All That JazzThe show opener is a sultry little number that grows in volume and brassiness. Velma (played by Jasmine Vizena) sings, Im gonna rouge my knees/and roll my stockings down. She sings about a whoopee spot/Where the gin is cold/ and the piano hot. Its very catchy. Also iconic, says Mr. Fornara. Its a remarkable number. It sets the scene for us and sets the tone for the type of music were going to be hearing.Cell Block TangoIn this number, the female prisoners of the Cook County Jail explain how their husbands or partners died. Each woman sings a verse, explaining how her crime occurred and justifying the murder. He had it coming, he had it coming, they all sing. The girls are fierce, Mr. Fornara says. Its one of my favorite numbers in the show, he adds, a sentiment he echoes for virtually every song. Its justification for the murder they committed except for the Hungarian girl, who can only say Uh uh, not guilty in English. Its a very dramatic number.When Youre Good to MamaIn this suggestive blues number performed by the prisons matron, Mama Morton, she sings about the favors shell do for the prisoners if they provide money or personal favors. Shes a real natural, Mr. Fornara says of Lauren Miller, the actress who plays Mama with a deep, strong voice. Shes perfect for the part After the introduction to the song, she just stands there, soaking it up, before she does her number. Sometimes actors have difficulty doing nothing, he adds. But she does a wonderful job of playing the comedy and taking the necessary time in there Shes a belter.ClassOne of the funniest songs in the show is a duet in which Velma and Mama bemoan the lack of class in people. Its an ingenuous juxtaposition of beautiful music and vocal harmonizing with lyrics about how there aint no gentlemen to open up the doors/There aint no ladies now, only pigs and whores. The lyrics also include the phrases pain in the ass and son of a bitch. Its the most ironic piece in the show, says Mr. Fornara. Theres absolutely crass language in it, while theyre bemoaning the lack of class. Its just the height of irony. My favorite line is, Jesus Christ, aint there no decency left? It makes me laugh every single time I hear it.We Both Reached for the GunIn this big production number, Roxy (Erica Dale Sample) sits on her lawyers lap like a ventriloquists dummy while he explains how her lover was killed. He of course, paints her as the innocent victim. Its a fast, jazzy tune, the kind coked-up dancers could do a manic Charleston to. Its really catchy, says Mr. Fornara. That number is nuts! I would say its one of my favorites. It builds and builds and then it gets real slow, and then it goes to breakneck speed, ever increasing in tempo and dynamic.Razzle DazzleAnother big production number toward the end of the show, this one has Velma and Roxys lawyer explaining how he works in the courtroom: Give em the old razzle dazzle/Razzle dazzle em. The number will be quite the spectacle, Mr. Fornara promises. I think Dawn came up with a really successful realization of that song, he says. Its one of my favorite numbers shes ever done, I have to say. It takes place just before the courtroom scene. Its literally like a circus. Thats exactly what (the lawyer) says, setting up the number: You got nothing to worry about. Its all a circus, kid. A three-ring circus. A cynical view of justice and our legal system? Absolutely. As is the entire show.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 COLLECTORS CORNER scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org It was a fine cabinet. It was solid maple, well designed, built in the 1940s, and it was built to last. I didnt need it anymore, but it was a family piece. And I was faced with the dilemma that so many of us face: How do we dispose of family heirlooms? My problem was compounded by the fact that piece, originally the base to a hutch, also housed a 92-piece set of Occupied Japan china that had belonged to my dads Aunt Cleo, a wonderful woman and schoolteacher whose wisdom continues to guide many of us nearly four decades after her death. Her floral china had sat unused for 17 years. I called around. I knew neither of my siblings could use the piece. Then I remembered that the cabinet originally had belonged to my grandfathers sister, Frances, and her husband, Thurmond. I emailed Frances grandson, Aaron, and asked if he would like the piece. Lucky for me, Aaron said yes. My grandmother Dorothy gave the cabinet to me in 1991 and told me Frances had given it to her when she moved from Pahokee to a large, contemporary home near West Palm Beach. My grandmother used the cabinet in offices in Orlando and North Carolina before parking it in a tobacco pack house on the family farm in South Georgia, where it sat neglected for 25 years. Somewhere along the way, it lost its hutch top. I brought it back home to South Florida and restored the finish the grain of the maple glowed as I wiped away decades of grime. The cabinet had pride of place in my kitchen. But tastes and needs change. For more than 10 years, it was relegated to a corner of my laundry room, next to the dryer and water heater. Once again, it was neglected, and stuff was piled around it. Thank goodness for Aaron, who showed up one Saturday morning with a minivan to haul the piece away. While he was there, I showed him Cleos china. Cleo was my grandmother Dorothys elder sister and had been a good friend to Frances. Frances said Cleo had set her on a path to righteousness, getting her involved with the old Pahokee First Baptist. It occurred to Aaron that his grandparents probably had dined from those dishes. The only downside is... I said. Well have to handwash them, he said, completing my sentence and taking away a box of dishes. And just like that, everything came full circle for me and my heirlooms. Hopefully, they will be part of the memories Aaron and his wife, Sondra, are creating with their four beautiful children. Thats as it should be. Im still smiling. How one heirloom actually made it full circleABOVE: Aunt Frances Simmons Knight with my dad, David Simmons, around 1941. LEFT: Aunt Cleo Douthit in a school portrait dating from the late s. SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis maple cabinet languished in a corner of my laundry room for more than a decade before I found it a new home.

Columbia was the first symbol, starting in 1738. She remained popular until the 1920s, but was not as favored as Brother Jonathan and Uncle Sam. Legend says Uncle Sam was the result of the initials U.S. on kegs of meat inspected by Samuel Wilson during the War of 1812. When asked what the initials meant, he gave his nickname Uncle Sam. But the Uncle Sam known today was created first by cartoonist Thomas Nast, who drew a tall, young man with a beard wearing the top hat, striped pants and waistcoat. Similar Uncle Sams were used in many ways, even as an 1886 mechanical bank. The Uncle Sam figure designed to hold a mailbox outdoors was made as early as the 1890s, but the most famous Uncle Sam was created in 1916 for a recruiting poster by James Montgomery Flagg. The figure is pointing and saying I Want You. Hundreds of homemade wooden Uncle Sam mailboxes have been made since World War I ended. The featured Uncle Sam figure is made of flat-shaped boards, but he is missing the tray for mail. He was sold by James Julia Auctions for $533. Q: What can you tell me about Splashme dolls? Ive seen these little seated figures online and would like to know who made them and how old they are. A: Splashme dolls were designed in 1917 by Genevieve Pfeffer (18901985), who used Gene George as her business name. The dolls shape, with head in hands and elbows on knees, is based on Rose ONeills Kewpie doll The Thinker. Splashme dolls also have similar large, side-glancing eyes. The dolls were made of bisque, composition or plaster of paris, had painted features and wore painted bathing suits and bathing shoes. They were first sold at beaches and vacation spots. Splashme dolls with a mohair wig or a scarf tied around painted hair were first made in 1918. Pfeffer also wrote books about the Splashme dolls. Splashme doll items included baby talcum containers, soap, party favors and postcards. The dolls sell today for about $35 to $50.Current pricesFred Astaire button, portrait, blackand-white photo, top hat, celluloid, pinback, Personalit y Butt ons, 1960s, 2-inch diameter, $15.

Jack Kerouac, Ed Ruscha exhibit to open at Rauschenberg GalleryFlorida SouthWestern State College is opening Jack KEROUAC & Ed RUSCHA: On the Road at the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery with a public preview reception from 6-7 p.m. Friday, June 29. From 7-9 p.m. there will be a special performance by legendary Kerouac-collaborator David Amram. Pairing renowned West Coast Pop/Conceptual painter Ed Ruschas illustrated edition of the classic Kerouac novel with the authors original 1951 manuscript for the first time, this groundbreaking exhibition brings together two of 20th century Americas most visionary and influential artists. The exhibit runs through Aug. 18. Single-spaced without paragraph breaks on a continuous 120-foot-long paper scroll, the late, great writer Jack Kerouac completed this first draft of On the Road and forever defined the restless Beat Generation with his 1928 Underwood Portable typewriter at over 100 words per minute in just 20 caffeineand Benzedrine-fueled days. It was praised by Allen Ginsberg as a magnificent single paragraph, several blocks long, rolling, like the road itself. Its about a group of crazy young people who just travel back and forth across the United States, according to Ed Ruscha. Sometimes they hitchhike and sometimes they drive cars. They steal cars and just want to be on the road ... Long-engaged with visualizing the poetry of our vernacular roadside, Mr. Ruscha was born in Omaha, Neb., in 1937, but left his hometown of Oklahoma City at age 18 rolling into Los Angeles in a customized 1950 Ford to study painting, photography and graphic design at the Chouinard Art Institute (now CalArts). A friend and collaborator of Bob Rauschenberg, Mr. Ruschas work has been widely collected and shown extensively by major museums around the world including representing the United States in Italy at the 2005 Venice Biennale.As is evident in this exhibition, Mr. Ruschas entire career has offered an artistic corollary to Kerouacs linguistic portrait of the American landscape. Acknowledging the romantic vision of the road as epitomized by the Beats, Mr. Ruscha invented the artists book in the 1960s with his inexpensively-printed and self-published deadpan photographic musings on the evolving urban environment of Los Angeles. Mr. Amram started his musical career in the early 1950s playing in the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C., as well as in the legendary jazz bands of Charles Mingus, Dizzy Gillespie and Lionel Hampton. In 1957, he created and performed in the first ever Jazz/Poetry readings in New York City with novelist Jack Kerouac, a close friend with whom Mr. Amram collaborated artistically for over 12 years. The gallery is at 8099 College Parkway at FSW. For more information, call 489-9313 and see www.RauschenbergGallery.com.

ARTS COMMENTARYDiscovering treasures serendipitously Sometimes, you just luck out. Things discovered serendipitously hold their own special wonder. Its like magic. I discovered this, you think. Every summer, once season ends and Im finally able to have a free weekend all to myself, I start watching movies and TV series others may have been enjoying all along. The months get unbearably humid, and this is a great way to stay occupied in the cooler indoors. They may be shows Id read or heard about, and now I can finally check them out. Or sometimes, theyre just things Ive stumbled upon. On some of those occasions, its almost like tripping over a pot of gold. That happened a couple of seasons ago when I discovered Broadchurch, a detective story set in the small coastal town of Dorset, starring David Tennant and Olivia Colman. It opens with an 11-year-old boys dead body being discovered, and a search for the murderer in the small town begins. Everyone suspecting someone else, and the police, being the police, suspect everyone. In addition to being a suspenseful detective story, its also an excellent study in grief and how it affects family and loved ones. Then I discovered Borgen, a Danish series starring Sidse Babett Knudsen (who was also in the first season of the remade Westworld.) She plays a woman who becomes the first Prime Minister of Denmark and has to figure out how to wield power and make her way through the murky wheeling and dealings of politics. To all those who wish to debate about women entering politics I can only say, youre 100 years behind, she announces. How can you resist a show like that? I binge-watched my way through all three seasons, though I admit, the politics in the first couple of episodes had me baffled. But that didnt matter. Who would have thought that a TV series about Danish politics would be so intriguing? I discovered afterwards that NPR had compared it to West Wing, saying it was even better. And Vanity Fair called it the best binge-watch TV option. If you havent seen it, there are 30 episodes just waiting to be enjoyed. We may not have a female president ruling our country with a steady hand and intelligent statesmanship, but we can watch one on TV to see how its done. I also stumbled upon the BBC police procedural series Line of Duty, which focuses on an anti-corruption unit inside the Central Police. What I liked about this series was the unexpected plot twists, the way you never knew what was coming next, the way lies led to more lies, and even more panicked missteps. Strangely, I also wasnt sure who to root for the crooked policeman or -woman, or those trying to capture them. Thandie Newton, who plays the intelligent madam in Westworld, stars in the fourth, and most recent season. Earlier this year, I happened upon The Expanse. Think of it as a detective story set in the future. Drones are everywhere, and yes, the rising waters have threatened our coastal cities, leading to protective walls. Were also living on Mars and mining asteroid belts. I first learned of it when I saw it offered for free viewing on Amazon. So I clicked, and was soon captivated by its quality production and cinematic presentation. I devoured the first two seasons, then told everyone I knew about it. No one else had heard of it either. But word of mouth does wonders. I told a sister-in-law, and she fell in love with it, binge-watching with my nephew. Then she told her brothers about it. And they in turn told others. Its one of the best science-fiction series Ive seen. And recently, I discovered a French TV series called The Bureau, or, as it was called in French, Le Bureau des Legendes. It focuses on spies working in the DGSE (General Directorate for External Security.) Our equivalent would be the CIA, I imagine. I took a chance on it because of the intelligent reviews left by viewers. It was a gamble, because I rarely trust the recommendations of strangers or comments left on Amazon. While working undercover, the spies have legends elaborate stories and histories for their false identity. When their mission is finished, weeks, months, or even years later, theyre expected to cut all ties with their former life and return home to their normal life. But, some have trouble readjusting. In this series, a spy named Guillaume cant forget a woman he was in love with while he worked undercover for six years in Damascus which leads to a series of bad decisions. There are a whole series of intertwining subplots, and though the series may start a little slow, the suspense steadily builds, and the payoffs are enormous. Its more thoughtful and psychological than 4 and more complex and entertaining than Homeland. I was surprised by how much I came to care about the characters. Yes, its in French (as well as many other languages) with subtitles. I recommended it to some friends, who love discovering great shows and are also big readers, but somehow, they dont like to combine the two activities. I recommended it to another friend; he and his wife binge-watched the first season in less than a week and have ordered the second. By the time this hits print, they may have watched all three seasons available. (A fourth has been filmed, but is not yet available.) Feeling bereft, I started looking around for something as good as The Bureau. But thats a tall order. I started watching another French series called Spiral, lured, in part, by a blurb from The Guardian, who called it darker and more twisted then The Wire. I loved The Wire, so I began watching. The story revolves around Parisian police, prosecutors and judges. But its nothing like The Wire, which had complexity, multiple plotlines and three-dimensional characters. So far, the show is entertaining, but more on the simple side. Its like Law & Order lite. And, half-way through the first season, the only people of color are (SPOILER ALERT) a nanny who kills an infant, a prostitute and a couple of drug dealers. This is the city where Josephine Baker and James Baldwin felt so at home decades ago? Its not until episode five where we meet an African woman whos not on the wrong side of the law. (Her husband was killed on a construction site by a racist whos also accused of raping his young daughters.) But still, theyre victims. So far, Spiral isnt half as complex as The Wire or even Law & Order. Ill see how the first season ends, and maybe try the second, though my expectations are lowered. So, not all gambles pay off. But wow, its so wonderful when they do. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com

He worked to get studio time, rehearsal time, radio play, live engagements and whatever else might make a record a success. When singles lost out to albums in the economics of the music industry, he learned how to adapt and how to help others adapt. Originally based in his home state of Florida, Mr. Gernhard also rose the ladder of influence in such music capitals as Los Angeles and Nashville. Now its time to name names: Mr. Gernhard resurrected Dion DiMuccis career with the improbably successful ballad Abraham, Martin and John. He produced hits for Lobo, Jim Stafford, the Bellamy Brothers, Rodney Atkins and Tim McGraw. And it wasnt all just hustling. He was credited with having magic ears. He could tell that a song (or a singer) had a lucrative future. He knew how to match a song and a singer for maximum effect. However, aside from the pleasure of making hits, Mr. Gernhards life was largely joyless. While many of his contemporaries in the business paid their respects to his talent, work ethic and drive, few of his relationships turned into meaningful friendships. Perhaps his connection with record label owner Mike Curb came closest. There was something private, something hidden, about Phil Gernhard. The story of his personal life, particularly that of his several marriages, is a sad one. Drug addiction and alcoholism plagued him and, therefore, those around him. He never got over the abusive treatment he received from his father, yet in several unfortunate ways he mimicked his father. His highly productive life ended in suicide, a decision perhaps reached to end his fight with prostate cancer. Mr. DeYoung tells this intriguing, complicated and multi-valanced story remarkably well. The stage of Mr. Gernhards life is crowded with many notable characters. The author manages their interaction in a style that thumps with energy. About the authorBill DeYoung is also the author of Skyway: The True Story of Tampa Bays Signature Bridge and the Man Who Brought It Down. His music journalism has been published in hundreds of national and international magazines, and he has written the liner note essays for more than 100 CDs. Nationally recognized for his music journalism, he has been a writer and editor at various Florida and Georgia newspapers for more than 30 years. 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.

C14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY PUZZLESLESSON IN TOLERANCE HOROSCOPESCANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your urge to do your best on a current task is commendable. But dont let it become all-consuming. Spend some spiritually restorative time with those who love you. LEO (July 23 to August 22) This could be a good time for all you Leos and Leonas to take your bows for your recent achievements and then go off to enjoy some fun times with your prides and joys. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A negative response to a well-intentioned suggestion could communicate a sense of distrust you might later find hard to refute. Think carefully before reacting. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your loving attention comforts a family member who is feeling a bit out of sorts. But be careful to prioritize your time so you dont neglect your work duties. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your curiosity might be resented by some. But those who know you will support your penchant for never settling for less than the truth. So stay with it. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A pesky situation from the past recurs, albeit in an altered form. Deal with it promptly before it can go from merely irksome to decidedly troublesome. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Dont wait too long to submit your proposals after giving them a last look-over. If necessary, you should be able to defend any portion called into question. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A bid to use your workplace dispute-settling skills in another situation is tempting. But be careful: You might not have all the facts youll need if you agree to do it.

You win Easts king with the ace and return the queen of clubs, which loses to the king. Back comes the seven of spades, and West makes the correct play of letting dummy win with the jack. You are now headed for defeat because, when you get around to leading a heart to try to score your ninth trick, East takes the ace and returns a spade, and West cashes three spade winners for down one. Whats wrong with this picture, you might ask? The answer is that you lost the contract at trick one, when you should have ducked Easts king of spades. True, this means that you wind up with only one spade trick rather than two, but in exchange you make three notrump instead of going down. You lose the first two spade tricks and later lose a club and a heart, but the rest of the tricks are yours. While its granted that its mighty difficult to play the spade six at trick one instead of the ace youre sacrificing a sure second spade trick by doing so thats what you have to do to make the contract. The clue to the winning play lies in the bidding. East is marked by his opening bid with nearly all the missing high cards, including the ace of hearts and king of clubs. If declarer can dislodge both of these cards without going down while doing so, he can score four clubs, two hearts, two diamonds and a spade. The lone threat is Wests presumed long spade suit. That threat is eliminated by holding up the ace until the third round. South then takes a club finesse, wins any return and next forces out the ace of hearts to secure nine tricks.

FILM CAPSULESAmerican Animals (Evan Peters, Blake Jenner, Barry Keoghan) Four college students steal rare books from a university library in 2004. Watching these normal guys plan and execute a heist, and wrestle with their consciences along the way, is a fascinating expos of otherwise good people doing a bad thing. Rated R.Incredibles 2 (Voices of Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson) When Elastigirl (Hunter) is given an assignment, Mr. Incredible (Nelson) has to stay home with the kids in this sequel to Pixars 2004 hit. This is the 20th Pixar movie and its not among the studios best, but it is quite satisfying. Rated PG.Oceans 8 (Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway) Debbie Ocean (Bullock) and her team plan to steal a $150 million necklace during the Met Gala in New York City. A spinoff of the male-dominated Oceans 11 movies, this female-led dramedy lacks the wit, clarity and ingenuity to keep us interested. Rated PG-13.The Seagull (Annette Bening, Saoirse Ronan, Elisabeth Moss) Based on Anton Chekhovs renowned play, the adaptation 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.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. 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, in this Star Wars story. 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 where her daughter Maddie (Gordon) is a senior to get her degree. Youll think its going in predictable directions, but it is delightfully surprising and funny. Rated PG-13.

Excludes Holidays.FIRST SEATING SPECIAL LA T ES T F I LMSJurassic World: Fallen KingdomIs it worth $10? NoJurassic World: Fallen Kingdom features more types of dinosaurs than in any previous Jurassic movie. Surely, you would think, that would mean more opportunities for writers Derek Connolly and Colin Trevorrow (who directed Jurassic World), and director J.A. Bayona, to do something truly creative and unique. How disappointing, then, that Fallen Kingdom is same old-same old, and not in a good way. Yes this is a sequel to one of the highest-grossing movies of all time, and you have to give the audience what it wants. Doesnt the audience also want, though, parts of it to feel fresh? New? Innovative? Its a downer when you spend 128 minutes watching a movie and leave feeling like youve seen it before. Fallen Kingdom is divided into two parts. In the first half, Isla Nublar, the former home of Jurassic Park and Jurassic World, is exploding. Literally. Dinosaurs run amuck as a volcano is about to destroy the island. Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard), who now runs a dinosaur-rights organization (you read that correctly), and Owen (Chris Pratt), who now lives peacefully undisturbed in the wilderness, return to the island to get the dinosaurs out. Theres also a group of jerk mercenaries with a shoot-first-dont-bother-to-ask-questionslater approach. Dangerous encounters, near escapes and some cool visual effects make this the better half of the film, and even this is only shoulder-shrug slight smile good.After the island the protagonists head to Ben Lockwoods (James Cromwell) mansion in California, where the rescued dinosaurs are held. Lockwoods assistant Eli (Rafe Spall) runs the estate, and Lockwoods caretaker Iris (Geraldine Chaplin, Charlies daughter) looks after his granddaughter Maisie (Isabella Sermon). It turns out, though, that neither the dinosaurs nor anyone in the house is safe.The island descending into imminent danger and chaos? Pretty sure thats been in every Jurassic movie. Dangerous dinosaurs wreaking havoc inside a closed space? If this hasnt been in every Jurassic movie, its been in most of them. The point is everything about Fallen Kingdom feels redundant and unnecessary, completely void of urgency and conviction. Howard and Pratt dont exactly phone in their performances, but you get the sense theres not much challenging them here either. The issue, one suspects, is that dinosaurs are an inherently limited species to build a movie around, let alone a franchise. Theyre big, theyre dangerous. The idea of being able to control them, and them having intelligence, is introduced but is never an integral part of the story. On the big screen we live in an era of superheroes, dazzling visual effects and otherworldly adventures, especially during the summer. Simply put, the Fallen Kingdom filmmakers have to be more bold and imaginative than this. By the time the inevitable next sequel arrives, lets hope they find a way to really expand the story, not restrain it as they do here. The ending lends itself perfectly to numerous possibilities moving forward. So come on, Hollywood creatives. Do what you get paid millions to do, and we know you are capable of doing well. Do better than Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Jeff Goldblum bookends the lm in a cameo as Dr. Ian Malcolm.

It turns out young Sally was caught stealing a notebook at a fiveand-dime by a man masquerading as an FBI agent (aka Frank La Salle). Mr. LaSalle persuaded Sally to stay with him in exchange for her freedom, and the pair traveled for two years as father and daughter. The story broke in the late 1940s, which happened to be when Nabokov was searching for inspiration for his next novel at the time. The author took some pains to hide the similarities between Lolita and the real-life drama. He tried to burn his work papers relating to the novel, but his wife salvaged them. These papers were an integral part of the literary detective work Ms. Weinman did for her book. Other selections of interest were Stephen Markleys Ohio, a story of four high school friends reuniting 10 years later, and Kim Brooks Small Animals: Parenthood in the Age of Fear, a book authored by a mother charged with child endangerment for leaving her son unattended in her car. At the end of the session, galleys of the books discussed were available for the taking. (All the books you can grab are included with admission to the show.) This years adventure had officially begun. From breakout to buzzI vividly remember meeting author B.A. Shapiro at the 2012 BookExpo, where she was signing The Art Forger, which would become her breakout novel. Ms. Shapiro had been sitting at a quiet booth on the convention floor back then. She didnt even have the requisite publishing house representative by her side, so I took the opportunity to talk with her. I learned that The Art Forger was inspired by the famous heist of artwork from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (in which 13 works of art valued at a combined total of $500 million were stolen in 1990). I also learned Ms. Shapiro splits her time between Boston and small world that it is Bonita Springs. Fast forward to 2018, when Ms. Shapiro returned to BookExpo to promote The Collectors Apprentice. When I spoke with her, she was still on a high from the experience. My publicist sent me a text 45 minutes before the signing, saying people were already lining up, she said with a sense of wonder in her voice. It was one of the highlights of my writing career. So many people are eager to read The Collectors Apprentice, and were telling me how much they had enjoyed my other books. I wanted to talk to everyone, but I had to move the line along. (As someone whos waited in lines as an author talks seemingly forever to a fan, I appreciated her consideration.) The Collectors Apprentice was inspired by Ms. Shapiros love of the Barnes Foundation and her fascination with Violetta de Mazia, a Parisian woman who became Albert Barnes assistant. The story originally was to be about Barnes, she said. But then Barnes and de Mazia ended up in Paris with Gertrude Stein. Some con men even showed up. Sometimes, the author just has to go where the story takes her. A sampler of upcoming releasesAndre Dubus didnt have the same appreciation of the value of readers time. He talked with every single person before handing over a signed copy of his book, whether or not they wanted to chat with him. I impatiently waited for my copy of Gone So Long the first novel in a decade from the Oprah-approved author. The line literally did not move. I abandoned my efforts in search of other literary treasures. Nearly two hours later long after Mr. Dubus was scheduled to stop signing I found him with a pen still in his hand. His publicist had a pained look on her face, but Mr. Dubus was clearly having a wonderful time. When my turn came, he looked at my nametag. I could literally see the wheels turn as he looked for a connection.

It turns out he could have done better. The book begins: My fathers parole officer had an office above a shoe store in Lawrence, Massachusetts. It was the kind of street that existed before shopping malls and reminded me so much of Arcadia, the Florida cattle town Id grown up in, how it was stopped in time Barbara Kingsolvers Unsheltered was perhaps the most buzzed about literary book of the show. The novel follows the lives of two families one in the 1870s, one in current day who live in the same home. In the books first pages, we learn that a good portion of the house is crumbling. It is literally missing its foundation. The galley contains a letter from Ms. Kingsolver in which she explains the book was inspired by the politics of today and the uncertainty that faced our country in the wake of the Civil War. The letter reads, in part, This is it: a contemporary and a nineteenth-century family both coping in the brave, sweet and ridiculous ways people try to deal with a world thats falling apart. Both living in a house that seems, unfortunately, doomed. Can history help us navigate an impossible-looking future? Seems like a question worth asking. What I know for sure is that stories will get us through times of no leadership better than leaders will get us through times with no stories. And then theres a tome for every readers bookshelf: ,000 Books to Read Before You Die by James Mustich. His objective was to develop a list of the 1,000 books he would stock in a bookstore limited to that number of titles. He included something for everyone and every mood. Some titles enrich or nourish; others entertain or divert. The book is organized alphabetically, with A including Edward Abbey to Jane Austen, and X,Y, Z featuring Malcom X to Carl Zuckmayer. Each title gets a synopsis and an explanation as to its place in history. When asked for a little-known title he would recommend, Mr. Mustich suggested A Life in Code: A Personal History of Technology by Ellen Ullman. The book of essays, published only last year, provides a perspective of Silicon Valley from its beginning by a woman who was there. If Virginia Woolf was writing about computers, it would be this book, Mr. Mustich said. He has also long recommended I Capture the Castle by Dodie Swift. The coming-of-age story, published in 1948, provided the basis for the well-loved Disney movie 01 Dalmatians. Not surprisingly, Mr. Mustich declared, The book is so much better than the movie. ,000 Books to Read Before You Die encapsulates both the BookExpo experience and the sentiment of readers everywhere: So many books, so little time.

Guided by Chris Taranto of the Winegrowers Alliance, we spent four days visiting vineyards and wineries throughout the expansive area, and what a delightful surprise it was. Of course, I was somewhat familiar with this part of California, but an in-depth guided tour and the opportunity to tastes dozens of wines was a real eye-opener. First of all, El Paso de Robles (which means the Pass of the Oaks) is located about halfway between Santa Barbara and San Francisco, not far from San Luis Obispo. If youve ever taken the scenic Pacific Coast Highway drive, just jog inland to Route 101, and youll find it. One of the citys founders was Drury James, who made a fortune during the gold rush of 1849. He also happened to be the uncle of infamous outlaws Frank and Jesse James. Revelation One: Paso has no real signature grape, unless its maybe Zinfandel. They grow everything, not specializing in a single group of varietals the way Napa does, or Bordeaux. They have Rhne grapes like Syrah, there are Italian varietals, Spanish, even some Portuguese. Whats more, the innovative spirit of the vintners leads them to create highly unconventional blends. We didnt sample many wines that were 100 percent one grape or another. We were joined at our dinners by several winemakers, so there was plenty of opportunity for informal chats. Over and over, we heard them say, whats good for one of us, is good for all of us. The spirit of mutual support for everyone in the industry was as surprising as it is rare. As a winegrowing region Paso is vast, and in many ways, its still considered the wine industrys wild west. Its not as polished as Napa, or as compact, so the drive between wineries can be something of a haul, but its all worth it. Its generally divided it into East and West areas, and then into several sub-appellations, each with its own soil and climate characteristics. For example, the Templeton Gap is a passage in the mountain range between Paso and the Pacific that brings cooler days and nights because of the ocean breeze that blows through. All in all, a very varied region, with an extremely varied selection of wines. Theres lots more to know about this exciting, unconventional area, and well do that in future columns. Meanwhile, Id like to share some of our discoveries. These wines may not all be available locally, but can be purchased through individual wineries websites. Ancient Peaks Chardonnay Santa Margarita Ranch 2017 ($19) From one of the areas coolest regions, this wine is blended from three blocks in the vineyard. Only a small percentage of the total had oak contact, preserving the flavors of tropical fruits, plus pear and peach. There are hints of caramel as well. Very nice. WW 90. Pomar Junction Sidetrack White NV ($24) Out in Paso, they love to blend. This is a traditional Rhone mix of Viognier, Roussanne, and Grenache Blanc that offers notes of peach and pear, along with a hint of orange and white flowers. One of our favorites. WW 92. San Simeon Stormwatch Red Blend 2014 ($65) A classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet, Merlot, Malbec, and other traditional varietals, this bold blend explodes with rich blackberry and blueberry notes. The two years it spends in new French oak contribute overtones of spice and vanilla. Excellent. WW 95. Ask the Wine WhispererQ. Im confused. Whats the difference between describing a wine as sweet vs. describing it as fruity? Rick S., Coral GablesA. This one confuses a lot of people, Rick, so youre not alone. Sweet refers basically to the amount of sugar a wine might contain. In Germany, winemakers are allowed to add sugar to fermenting wine to increase sweetness and alcohol content. However, a wine can be fruity and be dry that is, not sweet. For example, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc offers strong flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, kiwi, and citrus.

Below is a creamy alternative to all those smoothies weve all been cycling through the blender. Warning: youll need an ice cream maker but if youve been looking for an excuse to make the purchase, this recipe is all you need. Mango Ice Cream with Caramelized MangoCourtesy of Chowhound For the caramelized mango: 1/3 cup sugar 1 mango, peeled, pitted, and cut into large dice For the ice cream: 2 ripe mangoes, peeled, pitted, and coarsely chopped Grated zest and juice of 1 lime 1/2 cup sugar 1 tablespoon molasses Pinch of coarse salt 2 cups heavy cream For the caramelized mango: 1. Pour the sugar into a heavy medium skillet. Cook over medium heat, swirling the sugar around in the pan often, until it is dark amber. Add the diced mango. The caramel will sputter and seize up. Dont worry. Cook, stirring, just until the caramel dissolves. Scrape the mango into a bowl, cover and chill thoroughly. For the ice cream: 1. Process the mangoes in a food processor until youve made a smooth pure. Add the lime zest and juice, sugar, molasses, and salt. Process for a minute or so to dissolve the sugar. Scrape the pure out into a pitcher or bowl, whisk in the cream, cover, and refrigerate for at least 8 hours. 2. Freeze the ice cream base according to the instructions for your ice cream maker. When its just about frozen, add the caramelized mango. Chances are the ice cream will melt some; just keep freezing it until its firm again. Transfer to a container with a lid, and let the ice cream cure in the freezer for at least 2 hours before serving. Angelina McLean, head bartender at Eagle Creek Golf and Country Club, won the grand prize at the National Club Grub Mixology contest with her signature drink, the Mango Tango. Contestants were tasked with incorporating specific ingredients like Roses Grenadine, Clamato Tomato or Mr. Mrs. Ts cocktail mixes. Inspired by mango season, McLeans concoction includes Mango Ciroc, Mr. and Mrs. Ts sweet and sour mix, lemonade, grenadine and jalapeno slices. She relied on members and employees to offer honest feedback before submitting her cocktail. I start off by asking members what flavors they like and go from there. Then I end up naming a drink after them, she said. When eight out of eight taste testers chose Mango Tango over another drink I created, I knew I had a chance to win!

Have you tried chicken or pork adobo style marinated in vinegar and soy sauce, then slow cooked to perfection? Its the real deal at cozy little Magayon Restaurant, especially with the $1 garlic rice upgrade. Start with an order of lumpia ground beef, carrot and green onion-filled spring rolls. Resembling skinny Chinese egg rolls, the crunchy, paper-thin light wrapper and savory filling is quite different and a unique Philippine national treasure. I would only add a sweet chili or garlic-vinegar dipping sauce. The tiny cup of achara-green papaya salad paired with the lumpia is addictive with its sweet vinegar-pickled cabbage, lettuce and raisins. My favorite is the pork sinigang soups rich broth with hunks of lightly poached pork, tender radish, tomatoes, tamarind and skinny red and plump green peppers. Pancit Canton is a delicious sauted wheat noodle dish with shrimp or pork, chicken broth, mushrooms and julienned vegetables. One More Thing: You don t need to know a word of Tagalog to fit in; owner Glenda Cuello welcomes you like a long lost relative. Save room for halo-halo a special dessert with fruit preserves, shaved ice, milk, flan de leche, coconut and purple ube ice cream. Ivan Seligman firstname.lastname@example.org

Be prepared to travel in circles as you wander around the Bed Bath & Beyond Plaza and its environs as we did until I spotted it in the small, unobtrusive storefront that housed the gone, but not forgotten, Coastal Peruvian. Its on the east side of the center, facing Pine Ridge Road, but quite a bit north of the highway. Fortunately, parking is a cinch and, once inside, you will find chef/owner Guy Minet now presiding within the lovely little dining room. On the evening I visited a sleepy summer weeknight he was the sole staff member on the floor. Theres something charming about having the chef/owner take care of you personally, especially when he has a lovely French accent and a playfully flirtatious manner about him. My (female) companion and I thoroughly enjoyed his attention, which he had time to provide as there were only a couple of other tables occupied on this hot June night. To begin, we chose a Domaine Michel Girault Sancerre ($56), which had a pronounced citrus aroma and flavor that finished with a note of slate. It was on the dry side and paired well with the shellfish appetizer and fish entre I had, as well as the goat cheese salad my companion chose. Im not certain it was as good with her beef Bourguignon, but on a hot night, a properly chilled white was a refreshing choice. You might be familiar with Mr. Minets cooking from his time as coowner of French American Bistro or, more recently, when he worked at Cote DAzur while looking for a suitable spot for his current enterprise. The dining room looks much as it did when Chris Santos and his gracious wife, Fabiola, owned it, although Mr. Minet has added artwork that adds a Gallic touch. An accent wall of black, silver and white glass tile remains, as does the open kitchen. The menu is on the small side, with about eight entrees and a similar number of appetizers, although the chef also offers a few specials, which allows him to change things up a bit while still keeping his inventory relatively small and fresh. Dishes are served in an informal country style, without fussy garnishes, making it seem more like dining in someones home. The aforementioned goat cheese salad ($14) came atop fresh greens, with halved grape tomatoes, dried cranberries, walnuts and a touch of honey. It was an excellent starter, rich in flavor and textures but not overly filling. Also good was the scallops Parisienne ($14), a warm casserole served in a ceramic dish shaped like a scallop shell. With a covering of cheese sauce and bread crumbs, the shellfish were somewhat disguised but easily ferreted out. The sauce was relatively light for cheese sauce and the serving size was modest, leaving sufficient appetite for entrees. The beef Bourguignon ($28) was described as Julias legendary slowcooked beef in red wine with pasta. From this description, Ill assume the Julia to whom he refers is the departed, but still revered, Julia Child. Her recipe is indeed legendary and available online in print and video form to anyone who wants to try their hand at it. Mr. Minets version tasted authentic chunks of beef long stewed to tenderness, bathed in a rich brown wine sauce studded with carrots, pearl onions and mushrooms. The broad noodles with which it was served provided an excellent vehicle for the sauce. Once again, this dish didnt look like much, but that was quickly forgotten as the aroma wafted up, and we had our first tastes. Less successful was the grouper Madagascar ($34), prepared with a thick white sauce that contained ginger and vanilla, garnished with parsley and capers. The sauce was fine, as were the green beans and the mashed potatoes, but the fish was rubbery, a sign that it may have been cooked for too long, We shared one of the house desserts, a dark chocolate mousse ($9), that had an intense chocolate flavor and a dense, velvety consistency. Mr. Minet looked concerned and a little disappointed as we attempted but failed to finish it. Id recommend sharing this one as it is extremely rich. That we left any was not a failure of this delicious dessert. We were simply full. There are fancier French establishments in town one thing Naples does not lack is French restaurants but I thought this one was nicely understated and comfortable. Should you find yourself in search of dinner on a summer night, stop by and see Mr. Minet. Hell welcome you warmly and treat you as if you were a long-lost friend. And, as the legendary Julia would say, bon appetit! karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com Grouper Madagascar features a fillet topped with a white sauce flavored with a touch of vanilla and ginger.KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYDark chocolate mousse makes a fine finish to dinner at Chez Guy. Scallops and shrimp au gratin provide a flavorful start to dinner. Warm goat cheese is served atop organic greens and garnished with dried cranberries and walnuts. Beef Bourguignon, a French classic, is among the staple dishes served at Chez Guy.
