The vast majority 80 percent, according to rescue groups of the adorable baby bunnies purchased cheaply at Easter to be childrens starter pets are being abandoned in droves as people discover all the things they didnt know when they bought them. Some of those little-known facts include: Rabbits arent meant to be caged. They need exercise and become unruly and foultempered or depressed when caged for long periods. They are not low-maintenance. They require more than dry, store-bought rabbit pellets to be healthy and they need to be kept clean. Most children are apt to tire quickly of a pet that wont respond to them the way a dog or cat does, especially one thats kept in a cage for extended periods.We may love rabbits, but that can prove deadly to these popular petsSEE RABBITS, A22 SEE TICKET, A10 TICKETTORIDE N MID-JUNE, FLORIDA WEEKLY SENT ME ON a trip by bus and train around South Florida by Greyhound from Fort Myers to Tampa, on Amtrak trains from Tampa to Orlando and to West Palm Beach, then on the spanking-new Brightline train from West Palm to Miami, then an OurBus home to Fort Myers.

Thats because our national story creates deceptively rough terrain. As a people, we arent clansmen or tribesmen. We dont come from the same blood or geography. We dont look alike. We dont all hold the same notion of god or gods. You cant take us to a prayer meeting or a party, either one, and expect all of us to know the manners or the music. Too commonly, we actively dislike each other. In 234 years, weve proven to be a nation neither wholly right nor wholly wrong. Weve done greater good than ill, occasionally in spectacular fashion. But sometimes the split is iffy. We were once the most racist large nation on earth. Now were the least racist large nation on earth which still isnt good enough. Now, our nation is the most varied in its people, the most ambitious in its hope for everyman and everywoman and by far the boldest, socially. We can fight, too, as our enemies periodically misunderstand. But no nation has ever designed more formidable weapons, and once in possession of them, no nation has ever practiced such restraint. Nor has any other ever produced more honest critics of itself, or more fearless introspection from its own people. At our worst, were greedy, callous and arrogant. But at our best, we display courage, grace, humility, humor, tolerance, endurance, generosity, empathy and the raw desire to make it over the next hill and see whats there. Thats what I hope you will recognize in these simple photos. Every countenance here is a map of our entire history in this case, the best of it. In each lined face the hills and valleys of an American lifetime reveal the topography of our peerless and sometimes difficult country. I know these individuals. I photographed them because I admire them. Since he is often with me, my youngest son, Nash, appears in a couple of pictures, too. With any luck, hell be the one looking into a lens 80 years from now, joined by an invisible wire the enduring notion of independence wrapped in the long muscle of memory to the men and women you see on this page. In one photo, the little boy had slammed his thumb in a car door only seconds before, flattening it, as we went to buy tomatoes. But Nash was determined to suffer as stoically as Mr. Lee has, both in peace and war, across 90 years or so. He refused to shed tears. Simply by his presence, Mr. Lee offered my son an unspoken gift, but also an imperative: Stand up and take it, whatever it is and whoever you are. Each of these people offers that gift to all of us. Theyve starved, fought, suffered wounds in battle, tolerated dire mistreatment from fellow citizens, endured privation, raised children, lost children to war, cared for neighbors unasked, raised cows, raised crops and insisted on good cheer. There is little complaint or bitterness in any of them. None would fail to give you food if you were hungry, or defense if you were besieged, or solace if you were sad. You will know others like them, breathing or not but each still a living part of us. So help me offer them each a grand thanks, and a glorious Independence Day to all.

If you said Pyongyang, you probably have an above-average recall. I didnt want to make it too easy. The name Kim Jong Un still should ring a bell, but if the details of his much-ballyhooed meeting with President Donald Trump have faded, dont worry. That was sooooo two weeks ago, and we Americans have the memory span of a gnat. Since that historic Trump-Kim negotiation to defuse the ticking nuclear time bomb, we have moved on. All the glaring images from Singapore (the location of their get-together, in case youve forgotten) have faded to almost nothingness. The bluster that preceded the event and the lies and exaggerations from Trump afterward have evaporated into the political void. All the experts on Kim who were dusted off to saturate the news channels have been stored away again. Onward and downward we go. The following week we moved on to another blow-up, as the United States of America performed its best imitation of North Korea, snatching children away from the parents who brought them along as they dared to breach our borders. Its becoming routine for us as we witness one outrage after another. The constant cruelty, buffoonery and outright lying of this administration and its leader, the Trumpster, become symptoms of a chronic national sickness. This, too, will fade into outrage oblivion, along with all the atrocities that have sadly become part of the news loop: The shooting massacres that have resulted in zero action taken to control access to guns and all the outlandish hatefulness, scandals and embarrassments simply will add to our societal malaise. Gone and all but forgotten. Those politicians and commentators who wring their hands and state that this time weve been dragged too far down soon will confront some new low in the countrys limbo dance. Their premise that voters will remember and act on their disgust at the polls gives us far too much credit; nobody remembers. Blame a number of factors: There are the constant distraction from not just chaotic social media, which have become the megaphone for our worst instincts, but also from professional news organizations, which no longer are honest brokers. Most parrot the bakedin views from whichever side feeds their bottom line. We have constructed a massive Tower of Babel, speaking in tongues about our embedded resentments. Progressives despise the harsh bigotry and ignorance that motivate conservatives, certainly those millions who are Trump supporters. Trump supporters have equal contempt for the self-serving, smug condescension of liberals. Both knee-jerk points of view are on the money. So, there is no conversation, just shouting. No solutions offered, only blame. For what? No one really remembers. Nevertheless, we face the upcoming Nov. 6 midterm election. It will be all about turnout, turnout, turnout. And turnout will be determined by the turnoff of whatever bizarre depravity last dominates the headline machine on Nov. 5. Whatever the result, the divisions will multiply.Still, many wise people counsel that weve gone through downward spirals before, but the nation has always come out of them and thrived once again. This time, the wise people may be wrong, their hopes misplaced. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN.What Trump getsIn the 1950s, the great neo-conservative intellectual Irving Kristol acknowledged Joe McCarthys stark failings, but famously refused to take the side of his critics. For there is one thing, he wrote, that the American people know about Senator McCarthy: He, like them, is unequivocally anti-Communist. About the spokesman for American liberalism, they feel they know no such thing. The sentiment could equally apply to President Donald Trump and the issue of immigration. Trumps team is still trying to figure out how to extricate itself from a policy of separating families at the border that was incompetently executed, incompetently explained, and incompetently reversed. The president himself is so heedless of his own priorities and legislative strategy that he initially opposed a compromise House immigration bill crafted with the input of his own staff, then reversed himself and supported it, then declared that it should be put off until next year. Who knows what hell say about it next? He poured contempt on the idea of adding immigration judges at the border, when it is rock-solid Sen. Ted Cruz who is proposing the idea and every immigration restrictionist welcomes it as a way to expedite the consideration of asylum claims (the current backlog of 600,000 cases is a disgrace and adds to the dysfunction of the system). Yet, with apologies to Irving Kristol, the one thing the American people know about Donald Trump is that he believes we have a border and it should be enforced. About his opponents, they know no such thing and how could they? Trump almost certainly hurt himself, but the damage shouldnt be exaggerated or the opportunity for recovery minimized (assuming that migrant kids can be returned to their parents expeditiously, despite the insane legal and bureaucratic obstacles). In signing his executive order reversing course on family separations, Trump flipped from representing a splinter view to associating his opposition with one. Family separations were unpopular less than a third of people supported them. But even fewer people support so-called catch-and-release, permitting migrants to enter the country pending a court date. In a CBS News poll, only 21 percent say they want to temporarily release families into the country. An Economist/YouGov poll found that 19 percent favor release. With Democrats now banging on Trump for wanting to detain families together, they represent the minority view. The public wants migrants to be treated humanely, but it doesnt want them to walk into the country. Of the various options that the CBS News poll gave people for dealing with the migrants, the one that had the most support, by far 48 percent was returning families home together. This is the opening for Trump. Hes always benefited from his opponents going too far, in part under the pressure of his provocations. If he can make it clear that he wants to deal with migrants at the border decently but firmly, and that his opposition favors rules and limited detention space that effectively mandate catch-and-release, hell be in the stronger political position, again. On immigration, his advantage is the one thing that the public knows about him. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly bob FRANKENKing Features

Although my wife gets motion sickness sometimes and is not the biggest fan, my twins and I are definitely cruisers. And clearly I am not alone as the number of people taking cruise vacations has skyrocketed in recent years. In 1990, about 3.7 million people took a cruise. Today, that number is 27.6 million. But last week, the largest cruise operator, Carnival Cruise Line, announced disappointing quarterly results. Its stock took a nose dive along with other publicly traded operators. What caused this disappointment and how does the future look for the cruise industry? When CCL announced its quarterly earnings, the most recent quarter looked pretty good. Earnings were 68 cents per share, above the consensus estimate of 60 cents per share. Revenue was better than expected as well, at $4.4 billion versus expectations of $4.3 billion. The CEO pointed to greater demand for cruises as well as higher average ticket prices for the strong earnings. However, the companys projections for next quarter and beyond were not as rosy. Carnival predicts that next quarters earnings will only be $2.25 to $2.29 per share, significantly below analysts expectation of $2.47 per share. This shortfall was blamed on two factors. The first was higher fuel costs due to the rising price of crude oil. The second was unfavorable exchange rates. The strong dollar has hurt cruise demand as it has increased the cost for foreign travelers. If it was just these factors hurting CCL, I probably would be a buyer of the stock. After all, both fuel and FX rates can be hedged and there does seem to be a strong demand for the cruising product. In addition, the stock is not very expensive with a P/E under 15 and a shareholder gets the benefit of a nice 3.4 percent dividend. However, I am more concerned about two macro trends affecting the cruise industry. First, I am troubled by the significant number of new cruise liners that will be coming online over the next few years. In just this year alone, 13 new ships will become operational, adding over 33,000 to passenger capacity. Even more unsettling is that in 2019 and 2020, an additional 24 ships with over 66,000 in added capacity will hit the water. This is a lot of beds to fill. I wonder if CCL will be able to maintain its prices given this huge supply of boats arriving or will it have to cut prices in order to fill cabins? Further, the cruise lines are spending more and more on each ship, trying to build the biggest ships with the most amenities. Cruising has become so popular because it is considered a great value vacation, but I wonder if passengers will be willing to pay higher ticket prices to pay for these upgraded ships. Second, I also see problems down the road with CCLs ability to control its personnel costs. Here in the U.S., unemployment rates are at historical lows and employers are scrambling to find qualified people to fill positions. In many international countries, where Carnival recruits many of its ship staff members, unemployment opportunities and wages are also rising. It is becoming more difficult to attract qualified applicants, especially those with technical skills or who speak fluent English as there is heavy demand for these individuals. Therefore, I believe that Carnival will have to significantly increase its wages going forward, further putting pressure on its already shrinking margins due to rising fuel costs. Because of these two factors, I would be hesitant to buy CCL even after its drop following its latest earnings announcement. Until the company can demonstrate that it can effectively control its costs and handle the dramatic increase in cruise capacity, I think the risks just outweigh the rewards for this stock.

The summer melt occurs when collegeintending high school graduates changed or reconsidered where, or even whether, to attend college in the months after graduation. The summer melt is more prevalent in low-income, minority and first-generation communities that may lack resources and guidance in following through with their college plans. Some estimates by college admissions research places the summer melt of seniors as ranging from 10 to 40 percent of students. This year, Lee County had a recordsetting high school graduation rate of 90 percent, with Collier Countys high school graduation rate at 88 percent. But according to a local workforce study completed by the FutureMakers Coalition, only 37.7 percent of high school graduates have completed a college degree or certificate program in Southwest Florida. One area of concern is that the pipeline of students that feeds into our workforce development is being underserved. With the FutureMakers Coalitions goal of increasing degree and certificate attainment in Southwest Florida to 55 percent by the year 2025, both the K-12 and higher education systems need to work more cohesively to support parents and students. Our K-12 system cannot say, They are graduated, now they are yours, and the post-secondary institutions cannot say, They have not come yet, so they are still yours. A combined effort, including engagement of K-12 and higher education in conjunction with parents and students, is necessary. According to research, there are some small initiatives that can have large impacts on reducing the number of students who are susceptible to summer melt. While personalized phone calls are helpful, some colleges found students still grew frustrated by the length of time receiving answers from the college, and not understanding the college process of financial aid, documentation, transcripts and other necessary steps to enroll in college. Florida SouthWestern State College implements a collaborative mindset throughout the academic year and summer to provide additional support to encourage early enrollment step completion to set students up for success and increased outreach during summer months for those finalizing their plans. School counselors. Florida SouthWestern State College understands that preparation for college begins long before a students senior year of high school. The institutions admission counselors focus on building relationships with school counselors by offering presentations and programs to provide individualized support to the student body in the community. Throughout the academic year admission counselors can be found in local high schools presenting topics such as basic college knowledge scholarship opportunities, financial aid process and enrollment steps. Admission counselors also commonly offer admission and FSW scholarship application completion workshops and provide assistance to students wanting to complete the enrollment steps to register. Parents. Parents are critical in reminding students they are college material and can be successful in a post-secondary institution. In addition to playing the role as the cheerleader, educating oneself is essential to identifying which institution is the best fit. A colleges website is a great place to begin. Parents should promote visiting the college before the first day of class. FSW hosts campus tours at all locations. See www.fsw.edu/tours to schedule a date to discover Florida SouthWestern State College. FSW encourages parents to ask their child questions and line up necessary documents needed to complete the college application, residency for tuition purposes (at public postsecondary institutions) and financial aid well before the deadline. Post-secondary institutions. Florida SouthWestern State College is still accepting admissions applications for the fall 2018 semester that begins in August. In preparation for fall, the Office of Admission at FSW strives to provide accepted students their next steps by communicating to students though phone calls and emails. The institution also encourages students to check their student portals frequently for enrollment status updates to ensure they are able to register for the upcoming semester in a timely manner. New students who have not applied are encouraged to attend an enrollment information session during the summer months to guide them through the enrollment process in a group presentation format. See more information at www. fsw.edu/admissions/events. Community organizations. For many community organizations that support students during the summer months it is a great time to plan a group visit to one of the Florida SouthWestern State Colleges locations. Group tours typically begin with a presentation from one of FSWs admission. For more information, contact Ashley Crilly in the admissions office at Ashley.Crilly@fsw.edu or 4327355.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYbooked my tickets and Airbnbs and packed everything I needed for 10 days clothes, toiletries and my office in one backpack. Thursday, June 7 Fort Myers to Tampa SOMETIMES PEOPLE CHATTERED BUT mostly the Greyhound bus, from the Rosa Parks station in Fort Myers to downtown Tampa, fell into a hush. As far as Port Charlotte, I sat in an aisle seat next to a boy from Punta Gorda named Luke Peterson, who is 17. Luke was coming back from Fort Pierce. Hed gone fishing with his cousins and caught his first mahi mahi. He was also concerned about his dad, whose arm was badly cut by glass from a broken window pane while he was away. Luke exited at a 30-minute stop in Port Charlotte by a Burger King. I read the novel I brought, American Pastoral by Philip Roth, and didnt look up until the bus rolled over Tampa Bay, which looked as if gold coins had been spilled across it. People filed on at a stop in downtown St. Petersburg: mint, soap, musk, smoke. An exhausted dude, maybe late 20s, with a tattoo of an hour-glass on his arm, plunked himself down by a pretty woman across from me and started face-timing. He was leaving for Ocala, he told the face on the screen. You know why, he said, thumping his chest and making a rock n roll hand sign, Love you for real. He made another call. Ocala, he said, to get my life back together, so I can clear my head. The face on his phone blew out a mouthful of thick smoke. They discussed making a music video. A billboard over downtown Tampa read Eat More Greek. When the bus parked at the station on Polk Street the smell of stale marijuana wafted through the cabin. You smell that shit, huh, that shit is dank someone said. Outside the sun was low in the sky behind downtown buildings. People smoked, made calls. The air cooling, I walked north through downtown to Tampa Heights and my Airbnb past a skatepark, under a highway overpass. The neighborhoods brick streets and dilapidated houses reminded me of where I grew up in Fort Scott, Kan. Flowers I dont know the names of were lush but wilting in the heat, bursting through chainlink fences in overgrown yards. My host, Luis, and two little dogs greeted me at the door of his century-old home. I collapsed on the bed in a cool room with long, dark drapes. Later I walked four or five blocks down to the river to a place Luis recommended for dinner, an old brick streetcar factory that was converted into a home for several restaurants. At Steelbach, my waiter and I somehow talked about the universe being interconnected and he recommended the fried chicken (mmm good). He had immigrated to Pensacola from Bolivia 10 years ago, at 16, and showed me pictures on a phone with a cracked screen of himself in a red scarf with his dad on the cold, stark Bolivian salt flats. The name of the nearest town Uyuni he wrote on my receipt should I ever get the chance to visit there. Around 11 p.m., I walked back to my room. Heat lightning flashed over spooky old houses that I took pictures of. Friday, June 8, TampaI WAS SHOCKED TO FIND OUT WHEN I woke up and checked my phone that Anthony Bourdain was dead and that he hanged himself in a hotel room in France. The news was oddly linked with my mom, who introduced me to Bourdain in 1999 mailing me a copy of that first New Yorker article that led to his fame and fortune and who died the same way in Kansas City in 2010. I walked a mile or so into Ybor City and got on a street car, empty aside from an older British couple, rode it to the last exit downtown, found a Greek diner and ate eggs benedict, flipping through Creative Loafing, a local weekly. I wandered toward the river to the downtown arts district. Id read in Creative Loafing that stories were going to be told that night at The Attic, an upstairs club in Ybor City where the podcast RISK! would be recorded. It was the first time the podcast took its traveling show, in which people tell candid tales to a live audience, to Florida. Per RISK!s tradition for a first-time venue, creator Kevin Allison re-told the podcasts first story recorded in 2009, his own: as a young gay man, he escaped from sexually repressed Ohio and had an encounter that actually involves tying a pair of Converse sneakers by their laces to his balls. One storyteller took us to India. Another described the tragedy of a troubled street poet. But the star of the night was Jessica Pepper, with a story about navigating a breakup with a straight-edge boyfriend turned heroin addict while growing up in Pinellas Park. Im going to tell a story that no one can relate to, she began, and of course it was a story anyone could relate to, even with a Greys Anatomy reference that seemingly no one (including me) got, and a thrilling, bloody car wreck sequence. She inhabited her young protagonist herself at 18 with the right balance of empathy and gentle mockery. Funny and nerdy, her sentences were punctuated with well-timed ironic gestures, blowing her bangs in exasperation, or flipping off the audience (but really flipping off a character in the story). I was fully absorbed in one of her detours when the story succinctly slammed shut, TICKETFrom page 1 EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYMy Amtrak train departs Tampa for Orlando on Sunday, June 10.

Theres no seating so I ate at a bus stop then walked around the neighborhood. On 7th Avenue a man sitting on the street braided strips of palm fronds into roses. He held one out and asked me to smell it and it smelled perfumed, just like a rose, or so I imagined. That evening I attended the Democratic gubernatorial town-hall debate at Pinellas Park High School, broadcast on Spectrum News channel 13. The four main characters for governor: Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, entrepreneur Chris King, former Miami Beach mayor Philip Levine and former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham. Things they said: common sense reforms, taking on the sugar industry, because I believe in the American dream, equal pay/equal work, a liveable wage, zero tolerance for corruption, we need transparency, to make this economy work for more families, public education is my number one priority, when they go low I go high. Behind me sat a group from National Nurses United, a union group, who had already decided to vote for Mayor Gillum. On the other side of the room, local grade school and high school attendees had the chance to ask questions. What are you planning to do to keep me safe in my current school from gun violence? a seventh-grader asked. I want to be safe and not scared at school. For the audiences gratification the candidates denounced Trump: a danger to himself and the civilized world and a tragedy for the nation and were living a national nightmare. After the debate people swarmed the stage. It was a cool night outside the high school, cicadas buzzing in the trees. My Lyft driver, taking me downtown to Green Bench Brewing Co., did not agree. He didnt understand why people hate Trump so much. And yes, hes older, white. He used to live on Long Island (miserable) and moved to Florida in the s. He voted for Roseanne Barr for president in 2012 when she put her name on the ticket as a Green Party candidate. He feels that Barr and Trump tell the truth. He doesnt identify with any political party anymore. I admitted I voted for Obama and Clinton, but could identify with his alienation from politics. I voted for the first time at age 28 during the 2008 presidential election. At Green Bench, the beer was delicious and a crowd of 20to 40-somethings were settled on the lawn out back where a fuzzed-out indie-rock concert was underway: Luxury Mane, led by St. Pete musician Billy Summer, performing songs of the bands new album, The Secret Empire of Florida UK. Sunday, June 10,Tampa to OrlandoON THE WAY TO TAMPA UNION Station I visited Sacred Heart Catholic Church, a cathedral built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The silence was divine. I sat in a pew, flipped through a hymnal. I lit a $1 prayer candle and said the Our Father, remembering pretty much all of it. Union Station is a restored Italian Renaissance-style building that opened in 1912, according to greatamericanstations.com. After early rail lines left, the station fell into disrepair. Amtrak started using it in the 1980s. My train left at 5:27 p.m. Amtrak is long past its heyday, old and worn but more comfortable than the new Brightline Id take a few days later. The countryside passed by my window like a movie as the train rumbled through Central Florida Haines City, Lakeland, Kissimmee pulling out from a station where a young kissed hello or goodbye, hurdling past backyards strewn with toys, a passing train with the word HYPE spray-painted on a boxcar, past orange groves. A child sitting across from me fell asleep his mothers lap. Then: the Orlando station, a Mission Revival-style building built in 1926 and renovated in 2014. I walked up through downtown and then east toward my Airbnb. An industrial district faded into downtown, where I could hear jackhammers or something along with the rushing stream of highway traffic. A great blue heron stood in a man-made lake. Coming up Orange Street, I realized the jackhammers were actually the drum and bass of a DJ outside Aloft hotel. Distant lightning flashed over the city. I walked through a pretty neighborhood with houses painted olive, coffee, pale pink, robin egg blue, and when I crossed Mills Street and saw a YMCA on the corner I remembered driving through this neighborhood years ago. It took me a moment in the fading light to find the address, a duplex set back from the street. I got the keys from a lockbox per my host Caseys instructions, and at the top of the stairs was an air-conditioned apartment. No one was home, the door to my room was open, there were fresh towels on my bed. Monday, June 11, OrlandoI AM DRAWN TO THE DRUNKEN MONKEY Coffee shop when I visit Orlando, a laid-back institution a few blocks from my Airbnb with a hippie-ish vibe and an array of vegan goodies. Artists can display on its walls for no commission; on the bulletin board someone is giving away free tickets to a rock show; there is kombucha on tap. I have a latte with something called an anzac, a sweet crumbly biscuit redolent of lavender and thyme. In Orlando Weekly, I read about a A cook at Due Amici Pizza in Ybor City, Tampa, Friday, June 8. Florida candidates for governor Andrew Gillum and Chris King (second and third in from the foreground) greet audience members after a debate at Pinellas Park high School, Saturday, June 9.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYseries of events that are happening all week across the city in conjunction with the second anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shooting (Tuesday, June 12) in which the murderer killed 49 people. Orange County Regional History Center is offering free admission for the week so people can see the exhibition Another Year Passes: Orlando after the Pulse Nightclub Massacre. The centerpiece of the exhibit is the 49 white crosses created by carpenter Greg Zanis. The center has catalogued and preserved items from the days and weeks following the massacre left at memorials across the city, even small toys, baby shoes and crumpled, torn scraps of paper filled with messages like this one: Sorry I am so dried out. I came all the way from a vigil in Toledo, Ohio, and did not like 20 hrs in the car. Never hide who you are in fear of how others will respond. Love wins. Live with Pride. Before lunch I had a shot of whiskey at a dive called Lous, which features a lifesize model of Elvis Presley. A local news station was reporting that a guy held up a grade school at gunpoint. Does it look like rain? the bartender, a woman, maybe in her 40s, asked me. I told her it did. It looked like rain on Saturday, it was all black and gray, and then, she said, grimacing, waving her hand, nothing. I had a noodle bowl at Saigon Noodle and Grill next door, a restaurant on the edge of The Mills 50 District with its thriving Vietnamese diaspora, one of the many reasons to visit Orlando besides the alternate reality of Disney World. For dessert I have one of my favorite foods, Vietnamese iced coffee, very strong and made with sweetened condensed milk. Its about 4 p.m. and besides me the only other customers are a family. A boy went to the front door and peaked out. Mom, its raining! he called back. Lloviendo! They left and I stayed for a while, waited out the rain. When I got back, my Airbnb host Casey was there with his roommate Scott. Casey is a bartender and I think Scott is, too. Theyre both in their mid 20s, have the night off, and are opposites. I could see Scott partying with the cast of Jersey Shore while Casey could have appeared on CNNs Parts Unknown as a local guide to Orlando if the show had ever made it there. Scott and his friend were headed out to a club. Casey was hanging in with his friend, Meagan, and invited me to stay for dinner as well. He gave me some kind of delicious beer, a citrusy IPA. Meagan showed up with chicken in a homemade marinade olive oil, lime zest, lime juice, cilantro, garlic, and (the secret ingredient) ras el hanout. They made fresh guacamole and roasted tomatoes for salsa. We listened to a tape of an Orlando indie band Casey introduced me to, The Pauses. And we sampled a vinyl collection that looked right up my alley Against Me!, Lou Reed, and others Im not familiar with, Nina Simone, and Led Zeppelins Physical Graffiti. Casey and Meagan reminded me of my 20s when I was waiting tables. We compared notes on restaurants we worked in, our culinary adventures in New York both as children and as adults, when your roommate has loud relations, and drugs. I admitted acid didnt work for me (bad batch, I guess) but I had a great time tripping on mushrooms. After dinner there was a cooking show on TV featuring Asian soup dumplings. The ghost of Anthony Bourdain loomed and I slipped off to my room. Tuesday, June 12, Orlando to West Palm BeachBREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS: STEAMED beef on a bun at Beefy King, the 50-year old Orlando institution. My train was running three hours late so I caught a city bus to the old Pulse Nightclub near the station. Traffic backs up about a mile from the nightclub. Aww shit man this is that damn tribute shit, a passenger says sort of just to himself. Totally forgot its the Pulse memorial. Shit I might as well get off this mother****** and walk. I got off and walked. The nightclub has been turned into a memorial, with a wall around it covered by pictures of scenes from after the shooting. A volunteer told me it will be turned into a permanent museum. I looked through a plexiglass portion of the wall where there are still bullet holes. Michael Bubles Everything played softly. On the Amtrak with me to West Palm Beach: Sandra Kissoonlal, 56, on her way to see her mom and then to her cousins wedding in Jamaica. Angelo Girardi, 59, and Anna Marinano, 64, were in the lounge car, a little bummed because the dining services advertised on the ticket were no longer available because the train was three hours late. Shes a retired jewelry store manager and hes a high school social studies teacher. Theyre friends traveling with their parents from DeLand to Hollywood. They return to their seats and I sit at the table for a while and look out the window: lakes. It starts to rain. The West Palm Beach Station is a Mediterranean Revival-style structure that opened in 1925. Amtrak started passenger service here in 1971. My Airbnb just north of downtown in Providence Park has an alleyway entrance to a two-story building separate from the main house. I have one of three bedrooms on the second floor, sharing a small kitchen and bathroom with other guests who come and go. 10 p.m. I walk down to Clematis Street to a Brooklyn band called Las Rosas perform at Voltaire. The woman collecting a $5 cover is impeccably dressed, her skin so pale its almost violet. Voltaire is an intimate upstairs club with old-fashioned couches by plastic pink-petaled trees. Huge Edison-style bulbs light the bar. Silent images from Stanley Kubrick movies are being projected in a palimpsest of colors on the wall behind the stage: Shelly Duval screaming in The Shining, Keir Dulleas placid face in 001: A Space Odyssey, Jack Nicholson disappearing into a frozen maze. I ran into Steev Rullman, who Id met two years ago. He publishes Pure Honey magazine and now is a manager here, he tells me.TICKETFrom page 11 Sacred Heart Catholic Church in downtown Tampa.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2018 NEWS A13SEE TICKET, A15 The bartender made me a gin cocktail with a slice of citrus floating in it that looked like a flower. Ben Katzmans DeGreaser plays a song called Jontraband in which Katzman shouts, Oh how I wish I was and the crowd responds, John Travolta. Las Rosas headlined the show, a blast of shimmering guitars and melodic, psychedelic rock. The lead singer looked like Lou Reed on the cover of Transformer. I took some video and danced with this edgy woman who sort of freaked me out. She warned me that its a very dangerous neighborhood around here (its not) and then flashed what looked like a police badge and said, I know what Im talking about. I asked her if shes like a sheriffs deputy or something and she rolled her eyes and danced away. Then I drank too much without eating. And I told Steev I still have a recording, an interview with him from two years ago that I never transcribed, taped on a rainy day someplace near Lake Worth in which Id asked dumb questions hed answered many times before like how do you think technology is changing music? Wednesday, June 13,West Palm BeachTHERE WAS A NEW GUEST IN THE morning, a young motorcyclist, in the room across from mine. The Airbnb host was out of town, in Washington D.C., and a boy, maybe 12 or 13, came into the kitchen and asked me if I would like anymore of the pastries and orange juice that had been left out for breakfast. He also offered to do my laundry but I didnt really want to give him all my stinky clothes so instead he showed me the washer and dryer. I plodded through the day, hungover. At the Norton Museum of Art I was struck by the luminous green background of Jos Bedias Si se pudiera (If Only I Could) that I saw on closer inspection had been made with his handprints. At dusk, my hangover finally dissipated on Palm Beach islands municipal beach as the tepid, green Atlantic tide came in. Opposite the beach, just north of Trumps MarA-Lago resort, are multi-million dollar mansions. Along the islands quiet neighborhood streets, massive hedges and trees hiding homes are trimmed into perfect geometric shapes. And closed shop windows glowed along vacated, ritzy Worth Avenue, including a rare book shop filled with amazing first editions from authors such as Hemingway and Einstein, and an art gallery with Marc Sijans poignantly real, life-size Security Guard ($75,000). I caught a late showing of the film Hereditary at the two-story AMC CityPlace 20. It was horrific, scary, thrilling AND boring quite a combo. Thursday, June 14,WPB to MiamiCLEMATIS STREET, DAY. AT THE PALM Beach Photographic Centres museum there is an exhibition called Renewal: Going Native with prints of Florida flowers a spurred butterfly pea, a scarlet hibiscus, a yellowflowered butterwort, a purple-headed sneezeweed. I left my rented SkyBike at its port at the new Brightline station that opened this year. Its so clean and bright it almost doesnt look real, an artist rendering of a train station with Ikea-like interior design. The train left promptly at 2 p.m. and rolled into Miami at 3:17 p.m. through the Wynwood neighborhood, with some of its famous street murals, and into downtown. It was drizzling when I got to Miami, as I walked up through downtown by the City Cemetery into midtown and Wynwood, an old industrial and traditionally Puerto Rican enclave that fell into decline before it was turned into a tony arts district starting in the aughts, along with the gentrification that such a transformation always implies. The high rents have probably only begun to push businesses and galleries west in to Allapattah (Little Santo Domingo) and north in to areas such as Little Haiti, where a fun store called Exile Books recently popped up, next to an art gallery. When I visited Exile, which sells artbooks and zines, it also had an exhibit featuring Sister Corita Kent, known as the pop art nun. My Airbnb was in a Wynwood neighborhood off Northwest 33rd Street, a converted studio behind the main house. Over it hangs a mango tree, home to a bird (I dont know what kind) that divebombed me every time I arrived, swooping down near my face and then up into the tree, squawking. Later I returned to Wynwood Yard, an open-air a few blocks away where I spent last New Years Eve. Everything looked the same except its June, warmer and less crowded. The herb garden was swollen with rain. A band played and people gathered around a bar or ordered from half a dozen food trucks parked on the perimeter. I found the same truck I loved before, Brazilian Fire, which serves rodizio-style meats chicken, sausage, steak cooked over wood coals. As I ate, a passenger jet cruised low overhead toward the ocean, one of a constant flow coming in and out of Miami International Airport. Friday, June 15, Miami MIAMIS ART SCENE COMBINES THE sensibilities of high-end fashion and old-fashioned graffiti. The areas dazzling wealth of ethnic diversity is also a key source of vibrancy, with Latin influences being the most predominant. The conversations I heard were at least as likely to be in Spanish as English. Art can be everything fashion its like a different vibe, said Stephanie Hausammann, who along with her husband, Federico, runs Hausammann Gallery on funky NW 5th Avenue near the western edge of Wynwood. The gallery features a well-known Miami street artist, Atomiko, whose giant grinning orange I recognized from the sides of buildings. Federico, in his early 30s, is a third-generation gallery owner, but this gallery takes a new direction from his familys more traditional Italian roots. Im more interested in this urban art, graffiti art, he said. Across the street from Hausammanns, I seek out a street vendor for lunch. She People hanging out in Ybor City, Friday, June 8.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2018 NEWS A15grills me up a traditional Colombian arepa, corn patties filled with cheese, along with a sausage topped off with Pik Nik shoestring potatoes. The Design District, afternoon, the Museum of Contemporary Art. The three-story silver building is across from a parking garage covered with largescale works by different artists; Urban Jam by Clavel Arquitectos features a wall hung with silver and gold cars all headed in different directions. Its collections included early paintings by Donald Judd, who went on to become a major 20th century sculptor, and a lovely, dark installation piece by Robert Gober. Gobers early 1990s work first appears to be a sewer grate set in the middle of the floor. You do a double take and then walk over to it. When you peer into the grate you see brick walls going down maybe six feet and at the bottom a life-size male torso with water flowing over its hairy chest and down a drain planted in its middle. The museum was nearly empty except for a summer school group that I followed around for the next hour on a guided tour. When they get back to the drain piece, the kids stared down at the body for at least a few minutes, fascinated. Its horrific, one of them said, unable to look away. The guide said the piece suggests both a drowning and a baptism, and can be read as Gobers commentary on the AIDS epidemic, including that people with AIDS were treated as dirty objects, such as those found in a sewer. It goes in many directions, she said. Saturday, June 16,MiamiI NEVER PLANNED TO BE ON THE RADIO, but thats where I found myself on a Saturday nearing 5 p.m. on June 16, 2018, the year of our Lord, at the comfy Jolt Radio studio just west of Wynwood in Allapattah. Jairo Ariza, who lives in the neighborhood and goes by Guapo for his regular variety show from 9 to 10 p.m. on Thursdays, Ladies Love Radio, was leading me through the process of putting on my own show. Then we did it, streaming live in Miami. He sent me a recording afterwards. Jairo recently started offering this chance to make up a radio show to anyone through Airbnbs advertised experiences ($35, at least for now). His upcoming guests include a bachelorette party. He lit some incense and I sipped a strong cup of coffee hed made me while we proceeded through the hour-long show based on a playlist of music from my trip that Id put together the night before: Luxury Manes Sitting Still, David Bowies Here Comes the Night, The Pausess Little Kids, Las Rosass Mr. Wrong, and so on. Between each track, I talked about my trip and where I heard these songs, and asked Jairo some questions about himself. Outside of his radio show, hes going to school for accounting. Honestly, I feel like this area is going to get gentrified soon enough, he said, pointing to one example: a dive bar just down the street called Las Rosas with a fairly happening crowd. But the same could be said of the Jolt studio building which also houses Brooklyn Vintage and Vinyl record store. I told him that that night Im planning to attend a death metal show at Las Rosas. Ive never much listened to death metal, but Im curious. Why not? Before the show I crossed off a mustdo on my list with a visit to Ghee Indian Kitchen, a place I discovered last New Years Eve. Its small and crowded with an open kitchen and a lime-green banquet along one wall. Sitting at one of a handful of bar stools, I ordered three dishes served all at once. The red snapper was perfectly cooked with a crispy skin and served with a mellow curry sauce studded with charred okra cooked to just the right creamy consistency. The beef bone marrow was pure opulence, served with a slightly oversalted sauce with fresh curry leaves and coconut, which I scooped up with naan on the bartenders recommendation. And the vegetable salad with rose turnips, tomato, shredded carrots, crushed peanuts and cilantro was lightly tossed with a black-mustard seed and citrus dressing. For dessert, I had sticky date cake covered with a warm, buttery, jaggery toffee sauce contrasted with cold ginger ice cream which provided a sharp bite. Ghees chef Niven Patels progressive style for some brings up the elusive, ongoing debate about authenticity. Some call it fusion Indian. The bartender preferred the term new Indian, explaining that no matter how traditional a dish, it may pick up local influences. Call it what you will, it was up there with my best meals ever. The night before I finally left Miami, Las Rosas, 11:30 p.m. The crowd looked mostly early 20s; there was a chandelier over the bar. In the back room, a shoulder to shoulder crowd listened to Wrong (As in, not correct, someone told me) fill the room with massive black waves of guitar sustain. A huge red neon rose bloomed behind the stage. The headliner, Crud, roared on until about 2 a.m. The sheer theatricality of the performer excited me and there was humor behind the doom. Everything about Crud projected Satanic vibes, the thundering bass and drums, the wailing guitars, and especially the herointhin lead singers terrifying demonic howl. He crowd-surfed, started a mosh pit, sprayed beer across the room, tore pillows off the couches, mimed cutting his throat with the microphone, looked in need of an exorcist. Come to me, he beckoned the crowd evilly, or I will come to you. TICKETFrom page 13 Brooklyn-based band Las Rosas performs at Voltaire in West Palm Beach, Friday, June 15.

Each year, we as a community come together to honor our nations independence on July 4. Its truly a time to celebrate unrestricted freedom, said Armando R. Hernandez, who served as a sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps and is now program director for Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Program in Southwest Florida. Our military service men and women defend our country to give all of us the ability to live in a nation that honors our individual and group rights. While we celebrate, we should remember that there is a price for that freedom. While veterans appreciate the fanfare on this special day of recognition, far too many have recurrent memories of the trauma of war that negatively impact their daily life. Often suffering from the invisible wounds, such as post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury, many veterans relive or re-experience their horrible memories during nightmares or through their responses to triggers (noises, smells, sights). A flash of light or the loud crackle of fireworks meant to celebrate our independence through their time served, has the potential to take a soldier back to the moment of their greatest fears. The lives of those who took the oath to protect us and saw combat along with that promise often deal with these invisible wounds of war. Life-changing stress from events on the battlefield can leave lasting personal changes necessitating specific and cutting-edge therapies. We are only beginning to understand how to treat these issues, said Naples resident and retired Army Gen. Fred Franks Jr. It is similar to what we did not know 50 years ago regarding battlefield amputation. Mr. Franks, an amputee himself from wounds incurred during the Vietnam War, is the honorary chairman for Home Base SWFL, a not-for-profit organization offering free health and wellness services, to local veterans upon their return home. Services are provided in coordination with the parent program based out of Boston. Home Base SWFLs local programs Warrior Health and Fitness, Resilient Warrior and Adventure Series events for Military Families are designed to empower veterans to take control of their physical and mental health, provide tools to assist in managing stress and identify the triggers that would necessitate more intensive and complex treatment. People who survive traumatic events, like veterans, have a need to be around others who have had similar experiences, said Naples resident and retired Army Brigadier Gen. Ed Dyer, who serves as a special advisor to Home Base SWFL. Veterans who have experienced combat need to create their own community. Home Base SWFL offers them the opportunity to do just that. Working with Florida Gulf Coast University, Lee Health Systems and the YMCA, Home Base SWFL is a true community collaboration and offers veterans supportive clinical, health and wellness programs, all at no cost to them. More than 700 veterans and family members have benefited from Home Base SWFLs initiatives since its inception in 2014. But, as Mr. Hernandez says, the needs of the local military community are increasingly more complex. Our program is growing. We knew we needed to increase our local mental health capabilities to compliment what is currently available. Home Base SWFL is a philanthropically driven organization, relying primarily on donations to support their programs. Some of the organizations major events, such as the Run to Home Base Florida a charity race offered annually in January at the home of Boston Red Sox Spring Training JetBlue Park and golf tournaments such as those held at Kensington and Pelican Nest Country Clubs in Naples have been the programs primary source of philanthropic funding. With more than 1.5 million veterans living in Florida, including 5,000 post-9/11 men and women residing in the five counties of Southwest Florida, Mr. Hernandez is keenly aware that the need for services locally is vast and requires additional community support. Thats when the Karpus Family Foundation stepped in with a $12,500 grant, providing support for social work and case management. It seemed like a perfect match; our mission and their support, said Mr. Hernandez. This was the first time a local family foundation has donated to Home Base SWFL, and I hope it will encourage other like-minded organizations to do the same.George Karpus, CEO of Karpus Investment Management, resides in Naples and New York and says he couldnt think of a better organization to offer this support. My father was a coal miner and my mother did factory work, he said of his simple beginnings. Ive been blessed and I enjoy giving back to others. The purpose of my family foundation is to help veterans and/or children in my two locales, where the foundation can fill a void and really make a difference. I think thats true with this gift to Home Base SWFL. The program needs additional resources to expand and offer mental health support to more veterans; we can help them with that. Each gift, every thank you, opportunity or prayer offered for our service men and women serves as a celebration of our unrestricted freedom on this timehonored historical holiday that began on a battlefield. This Independence Day, Home Base SWFL Florida will celebrate the many gifts the Karpus Family Foundation grant will bring to the veterans they serve throughout the entire year because in the words of Home-Base, Their Mission Is Complete. Ours Has Just Begun. For more information regarding Home Base Southwest Florida programs, visit www.homebase.org/florida or call 7702414.

What to Bring No matter what youre doing or where, the following items will stand you in good stead: first-aid kit, water, collapsible water dish or pet-friendly water bottle, tick removal device, poop bags, and a cooling pad, coat or bandanna. Weather For some animals, anything over 65 degrees Fahrenheit is hot, and they begin to wilt. Others can tolerate higher temperatures, but once the thermostat hits 80 degrees Fahrenheit, its too hot for most pets to be doing strenuous activity, especially if they have a short snout or heavy coat. Even on short hikes, offer water frequently. Hiking Start puppies, small dogs and cats with short hikes of a quarter-mile to a mile. Be prepared with a backpack, sling or other carrier made for pets if the going gets tough or the temperature rises. Work up to longer distances gradually, and keep loads light. A young dogs musculoskeletal development isnt complete until hes 14 to 24 months old, and excessive weight-bearing activity can contribute to orthopedic problems such as hip dysplasia. Be aware of your pets limitations. Hell go beyond them trying to keep up with you, so make sure he doesnt overdo things. Onor off-leash, your dog should know and always respond to the cues come, sit, down, stay and quiet. Grooming Getting wet is a major part of outdoor fun. Whether your pet has been in the ocean or a lake or river, hell need some attention to his ears and fur afterward. Rinse fur thoroughly with fresh water to remove salt, sand and slime from his coat. Towel-dry down to the skin to prevent mildew stink or hot spots. Keep ears dry, especially if theyre droopy. The warm, dark interior of the ear is a perfect breeding ground for bacteria if it gets and stays wet. Dry ears and add a couple of drops of ear cleaner after every swim. Camping Know the rules. Some states require people with dogs to present rabies certificates or other documentation at camping areas. Parks may restrict people with pets to certain campgrounds or campsite areas. National parks may not allow pets on trails. A nearby national forest can be a better bet with a pet. The camp-ready pet has been treated with flea, tick and heartworm repellent, and hes on a leash to make sure he doesnt wander far when bears or mountain lions are on the prowl. In the tent, he has his own blanket or pet bed. Youve all had a big day of swimming in the lake, spotting deer on hikes, and collecting rocks, shed antlers and other treasures. Now youre chillaxing at the campsite as the sun goes down. Toss your dog some hushpuppies or your favorite equivalent while youre sitting around the campfire, and rest up so you can do it all again tomorrow.

They saved their money, bought a bus, painted it in Mexicos colors and booked passage for themselves and the bus on a ship going to Spain, where The Daily Mail reported, the friends planned to drive the bus to Russia. But just before they boarded the ship in April, one of the five, Javier, told his friends his wife had put the kibosh on his trip. So, the remaining four did the next best thing: They made a cardboard life-size cutout of Javier, looking grumpy and wearing a shirt that says, My wife didnt let me go, and set off for Russia. The cardboard Javier has been very popular at the soccer venues, attracting female admirers, appearing on the big screen, crowdsurfing and being photographed with fellow football fans from all over the world.Anger managementIn North Port, a witness watched on June 17 as 75-year-old Helena Molnar beat an unnamed man with a water jug after he watered her plants. When he emptied the rest of the water in the jug on her plants, she went inside her house and returned with a different weapon, which the witness didnt see but said made a different sound than the water jug. According to WWSB TV, North Port police arrived to find the victim soaking wet, with blood drops on his shirt. Molnar was charged with battery.Art makes a statement At the Royal College of Arts annual London fashion show in June, one graduate unveiled a unique approach to accessorizing garments: crystallized bodily fluids. Alice Potts displayed a pair of ballet shoes decorated with crystals formed from sweat, along with a fake fur adorned with urine crystals. Potts told Reuters the more natural materials could offer environmental benefits not possible with traditional plastics. To kick off an exhibition focused on the opioid crisis at his Stamford, Conn., art gallery on June 22, gallery owner Fernando Alvarez and artist Domenic Esposito placed an 800-pound, 11-foot-long steel sculpture of a bent and burned spoon in front of the headquarters of Purdue Pharma, makers of OxyContin. Purdue has been the subject of lawsuits alleging deceptive marketing and, therefore, responsibility for opioid addiction and overdose issues. The spoon has always been an albatross for my family, said Esposito, whose brother has struggled with drug addiction for 14 years. The Associated Press reported police arrested Alvarez for obstructing free passage and confiscated the spoon as evidence.AwesomeOn June 23, firefighters of Engine 642 of the Henrietta, N.Y., Fire District went the extra mile after responding to an accident in which the injured driver was a pizza delivery man, according to Fox News.

But on May 21, the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reported, sheriffs deputies at the jail released him, having mistaken him for Marvin March, 35, a different inmate. Jail staff gave Rynerson Marchs belongings, and he wore Marchs leather jacket as he signed Marchs name to the release papers and left the facility. Rynersons wife was startled to see her husband in the garage at their home, and after he explained what happened, she convinced him to go back. She personally drove him back to the Mesa County Detention Facility, the report noted, and he was back in custody by 11 p.m., with new charges, including escape and forgery, added to his list.Recurring themesIn this weeks installment of foreign objects stuck in body cavities: Mr. Li of Chinas Guangdong Province went to the doctor on June 15 at Pingshan Hospital in Shenzhen after feeling discomfort and pain in his ear. Using an otoscope scan, the doctor discovered a live cockroach burrowing into the 52-year-old mans ear canal. Its still alive, still moving, the doctor can be heard on video saying, according to The Daily Mail. She cut the roach into pieces to remove it and disinfected Lis ear with alcohol in case it had laid eggs.News that sounds like a movieWhen Juan Ramon Alfonso Penayo, 20, of Santa Teresa, Paraguay, failed to return after leaving his home June 14, his family assumed the worst. The town lies on the border with Brazil, reported the BBC, and is a hotbed of illegal drug activity. Police found a charred body three days later and called Penayos family, who, despite being unable to identify the remains, accepted that it must be him and proceeded with funeral arrangements. As they mourned over his casket during the wake, Penayo walked nonchalantly into the room. The body in the casket was returned to the morgue, and Penayos family celebrated his return.

Last week we had eight to 10, depending on the day, competent and experienced Joint Commission surveyors educating, consulting, validating, uncovering, connecting, simplifying and sharing best practices with us. Our entire outpatient system with 73 locations from Bonita to Marco Island to east of I-75 on Immokalee Road as well as our Baker Hospital (385 beds) and North Naples Hospital (325 beds) were examined for quality and safety. For over 60 years, TJC has been a champion of patient safety by helping healthcare organizations to improve the quality and safety of the care provided. TJCs many patient safety-focused initiatives encourage and support organizations like ours as we make patient safety and high quality continuous priorities. Raising the bar, sustaining a culture of high expectations, and learning best practices from experienced healthcare professionals physicians, nurses and engineers who collectively have examined hundreds of other healthcare systems help our 4,300 colleagues, 800-plus physicians and 200-plus non-physician providers continuously improve. Having an independent set of eyes look over brand-new and longexisting services and locations uncover areas for improvement and adds value. TJC has a comprehensive library of 800-plus best practices. Some of the many best practice recommendations for us touched on end-of-life issues, disposal of narcotics in the midst of the national opioid crisis, enhanced screening for domestic violence, simplification of the credentialing process and sterilization/disinfection of surgical packs. All of these appropriate suggestions were accompanied by contemporaneous learning moments as our surveyors helped the involved staff to understand the how and why these changes improve quality and safety. Our examiners agreed that we provide excellent quality, but have opportunities for better documentation in areas of rapid recent growth that are ripe to standardize best practices. Overall, we have learned and will quickly comply with all the appropriate suggestions. We expect another visit to validate our learning in the near future and will continue on our neverending journey of improvement. Learning together, sharing best practices, and receiving review by outside, independent, competent folks accelerate our journey to help everyone live a longer, happier and healthier life. Heat-related health dangers soar for seniors in the summer months NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHAs we age, our ability to adequately respond to summer heat can become a serious problem. Older people are at significant increased risk of heat-related illnesses, known collectively as hyperthermia, during the summer months. Hyperthermia can include heat stroke, heat edema (swelling in your ankles and feet when you get hot), heat syncope (sudden dizziness after exercising in the heat), heat cramps and heat exhaustion. Experts at the National Institute on Aging, part of the National Institutes of Health, say knowing which healthrelated factors may increase risk could save a life. Those factors include: Age-related changes to the skin such as poor blood circulation and inefficient sweat glands. Heart, lung and kidney diseases, as well as any illness that causes general weakness or fever. High blood pressure or other conditions that require changes in diet, such as salt-restricted diets. Reduced sweating, caused by medications such as diuretics, sedatives, tranquilizers and certain heart and blood pressure drugs. Taking several drugs for various conditions. (It is important, however, to continue to take prescribed medication and discuss possible problems with a physician.) Being substantially overweight or underweight. Drinking alcoholic beverages. Being dehydrated. Lifestyle factors extremely hot living quarters, lack of transportation, overdressing, visiting overcrowded places and not understanding how to respond to weather conditions, for example can also increase risk. Older people, particularly those at special risk, should stay indoors on particularly hot and humid days, especially when there is an air pollution alert in effect. To stay cool, drink plenty of fluids and wear light-colored, loosefitting clothes in natural fabrics. People without fans or air conditioners should keep their homes as cool as possible or go someplace cool. Senior centers, religious groups and social service organizations in many communities provide cooling centers when the temperatures rise. Or visit air-conditioned public places such as shopping malls, movie theaters or libraries. A severe form of hyperthermia, heat stroke occurs when the body is overwhelmed by heat and unable to control its temperature. Someone with a body temperature above 104 degrees Fahrenheit is likely suffering from heat stroke. Symptoms of heat stroke include fainting; a change in behavior (confusion, combativeness, staggering, possible delirium or coma); dry, flushed skin and a strong, rapid pulse; and lack of sweating. Seek immediate medical attention for a person with any of these symptoms, especially an older adult. If you suspect that someone is suffering from a heat-related illness: Call 911. Get the person out of the heat and into a shady, air-conditioned or other cool place. Urge them to lie down. If the person can swallow safely, offer fluids such as water and fruit or vegetable juices. Do not offer alcohol or caffeine. Apply a cold, wet cloth to the wrists, neck, armpits and groin. These are places where blood passes close to the surface of the skin, and a cold cloth can help cool the blood. Encourage the person to shower, bathe or sponge off with cool water if it is safe to do so. Those who are having a hard time paying for home cooling costs should contact the National Energy Assistance Referral service (email firstname.lastname@example.org), the Area Agency of Aging (visit www.aaaswfl.org) or a local senior center or social service agency for possible help. Free publications on hot weather safety and other healthy aging topics in English and Spanish are available from the NIA at www. nih.gov by calling 1-800222-2225.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 600 people in the United States are killed by extreme heat every year. The American Red Cross has steps to help stay safe when the temperatures soar. Its important for everyone to realize that warm weather can be dangerous, said Joanne Nowlin, CEO of the American Red Cross South Florida Region. The Red Cross has steps you can follow to make sure you and your loved ones are protected when hot weather hits your area.Heat safety tipsSome people are more at risk of developing a heat-related illness, including adults age 65 and older, those with chronic medical conditions, people who work outside, infants and children and athletes. Here are steps you should take in hot weather. Hot cars can be deadly. Never leave children or pets in your vehicle. The inside temperature of the car can quickly reach 120 degrees. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids. Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol. Check on family, friends and neighbors who do not have air conditioning, who spend much of their time alone or who are more likely to be affected by the heat. If someone doesnt have air conditioning, they should seek relief from the heat during the warmest part of the day in places like schools, libraries, theaters, malls, etc. Avoid extreme temperature changes. Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing. Avoid dark colors because they absorb the suns rays. Slow down, stay indoors and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day. Postpone outdoor games and activities. Use a buddy system when working in excessive heat. Take frequent breaks if working outdoors. Check on animals frequently to ensure that they are not suffering from the heat. Make sure they have plenty of cool water.Heat exhaustionExcessive heat can lead to sunburn, heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke. If someone is experiencing heat cramps in the legs or abdomen, get them to a cooler place, have them rest, lightly stretch the affected muscle and replenish their fluids with a half a glass (about four ounces) of cool water every 15 minutes. If someone is exhibiting signs of heat exhaustion (cool, moist, pale or flushed skin, heavy sweating, headache, nausea, dizziness, weakness, exhaustion), move them to a cooler place, remove or loosen tight clothing and spray the person with water or apply cool, wet cloths or towels to the skin. Fan the person. If they are conscious, give small amounts of cool water to drink. Make sure the person drinks slowly. Watch for changes in condition. If the person refuses water, vomits or begins to lose consciousness, call 9-1-1.Life-threatening heat strokeSigns include hot, red skin which may be dry or moist; changes in consciousness; vomiting and high body temperature. Call 9-1-1 immediately if someone shows signs of heat stroke. Move the person to a cooler place. Quickly cool the persons body by immersing them up to their neck in cold water if possible. Otherwise, douse or spray the person with cold water, or cover the person with cold, wet towels or bags of ice.Download Red Cross appsThe Red Cross app Emergency can help keep you and your loved ones safe by putting vital information in your hand and settings for more than 35 different severe weather and emergency alerts including heat advisories and excessive heat warnings.

Once they start maturing, they can become smelly and unruly unless they are neutered or spayed, which can cost a lot more than the purchase price. As all of this becomes clear to people, they either dump these poor pets on overloaded rabbit rescues, local shelters which arent equipped to handle more than a few at a time or simply let them loose, which is most often a death sentence for animals that arent equipped to fend for themselves. According to the Humane Society of the United States, rabbits are the third most popular pet in the U.S. and the third most-often abandoned. Statistics on how many are killed arent available because they are often lumped together with other small animals when statistics are gathered. But what is known is that they are abandoned and in huge numbers. Just ask Jen Macbeth of Estero or Lisa Walkup of Naples. The two women formed Southwest Florida House Rabbit Rescue in 2015 to help solve the problem of abandoned domestic rabbits. The pair met by chance at the veterinarians office. Ms. Macbeth, of Estero, was there with her very sick bunny, Basil. It was the last trip Ms. Walkups bunny, Bumble Bee, would make to the vet. The two women spent time in the waiting room talking. We were of the same heart and mindset about how we treat our bunnies, said Ms. Walkup of Naples. We spoke the same language. Ms. Macbeths beloved rabbit died of cancer soon after as well, and the women reconnected. When you get really attached to a pet, when they leave you, you are left with all this love that you poured into that animal, Ms. Macbeth said. What do you do with that? You can turn it into grief or turn it into action. I was called to rescue other rabbits since I rescued her (after finding her running loose at Loyola University a decade earlier). She and Ms. Walkup decided to form an official nonprofit organization. Theyd envisioned rescuing a few at a time but it was like wildfire, Ms. Macbeth says. They currently have about 60 rabbits in need of homes that are being fostered throughout the state since they have no official shelter. The need exceeds our ability, she says. We have to turn hundreds of people away every year. We try to find solutions, but helping them work out behavior and diet problems, or work with friends and family members to rehome them. We always tell them not to post them on Craigslist for free. They estimate they get one or two calls a month The need is so great because there is nowhere for them to go, says Ms. Macbeth, who is an instructor at Florida Gulf RABBITSFrom page 1KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYThese adorable bunnies await adoption at foster homes supplied by the Southwest Florida House Rabbit Rescue.

Coast University, teaching the University Colloquium, a course that teaches students about the local environment, sustainability and how they can become better guardians of the earth. They are marketed at pet stores and breeders as pocket pets and are typically four weeks old when sold at pet stores, she says. Rabbits can give birth every 31 days, so they are weaned early when breeders are solely interested in making money from them. At the rescue, they keep the babies with their mothers for at least 20 weeks. The result: Upwards of 90 percent dont live to see their first year, Ms. Macbeth says. They are either too young and are stressed from being separated from their siblings and mothers, or from improper care. Most people dont know the proper diet, or how to care for them and dont want to spend the money on a $20 pet store bunny. Heres what rabbit lovers want you to know if you are considering a rabbit as a pet: Eighty percent of their diet should be timothy hay, available at places like Futrals Feed Store or through pet mail order outlets such as chewy.com. Without it, the rabbits develop gastrointestinal and dental problems. When they have it, it keeps their teeth properly ground down and they dont chew things they arent supposed to. Another 10 percent should be fresh organic spring mix greens and 10 percent processed pellets. But the hay is the primary thing. They should eat about the size of their body every day, Ms. Macbeth says. They should be spayed or neutered, which requires the services of a specialty vet, and it can be costly. Without it, however, the animals can get an unpleasant odor, develop behavior issues and have a much higher incidence of cancer. Raised properly, a rabbit can live 10 or 12 years. They require an annual checkup by the vet but no vaccinations. Startup supplies run about $200 and include an enclosure (typically the sort of large gates used for dogs), toys, a litter box, bowls and a bed. The rescue prefers to adopt out rabbits in bonded pairs and is happy to help people find a mate for their single bunnies. They offer a bonding service, carefully introducing rabbits to each other and supervising the interaction. They start with a speed date then progress to longer periods together, like a dinner date, until its time for an overnight. And, even then, Ms. Macbeth is there to chaperone to ensure theres no fighting because rabbits who dont like each other can do serious harm to one another. But once they find another rabbit that suits them, they are much more contented and less apt to misbehave. You also have to bunny proof the house, such as making sure power cords are tucked up and away. All the rescue groups rabbits are litter trained. They fill the boxes with timothy hay. The rabbits use half as a restroom and half as a restaurant, Ms. Macbeth says. They eat and go potty. They are very fastidious. They cant use clay or pine litters although some will use recycled paper litter. But the hay makes a great fertilizer in gardens and Ms. Macbeth takes hers to the FGCU Food Forest to help fertilize the crops and then harvests greens for her bunnies to eat. While conceding they take some maintenance the type most children arent likely to provide she says its worth it. I love the fact that they all have distinct personalities, Ms. Macbeth says. They are really quiet, but they do communicate. They are very sweet. You dont have to walk them, and they are very clean animals. I personally think they are the best pets. You can train them. Rabbits are very smart. They are curious, inquisitive, clever. They have a good sense of humor. Ms. Walkup is of the same opinion. From the time I got my first house bunny, there was something I loved about them. Theyre fun and a lot smarter than people think they are. They love to be part of the family. They like to be where family action is happening. At Ms. Macbeths home, there are several rabbit habitats set up throughout the dining room, the living room and bedroom. Each one houses a pair of bonded bunnies. Sampson and Smallfry, two English lop bunnies, have double decker beds. Sampson, a good-sized rabbit who enjoys being cradled like a baby in your arms, gets the top deck while his more diminutive partner, Smallfry, prefers the bottom. Fuzzy and Walter were abuse victims, likely thrown against a wall by someone. Fuzzy had a broken pelvis, Walter suffered broken ribs. They arent likely to be adopted out because of the trauma they suffered. Meanwhile, Ivy, a beautiful black bunny, is looking for a mate and a home. During a visit to Ms. Macbeths home, she was perched in a chair in the living room gazing inquisitively at guests who admired her silky upright ears and bright gaze. She was happy to receive pets and attention. The habitats are equipped with stuffed toys. One has a hammock, another a rabbit house with a window through which the occupant can peer out. Ms. Walkup says that although many people consider them great starter pets for kids, the group finds that most children grow tired of the responsibility after a month or so and they make sure parents are willing to step in before they agree to an adoption. We have had parents get ruffled when we say these arent good pets for kids. Some parents say their children are very responsible and there are some awesome kids that love their bunnies, says Ms. Walkup. The women agree that older people, such as retirees, make great rabbit adopters and the rabbits make ideal pets for them since they dont need walking and arent noisy. They recommend that anyone thinking about getting a rabbit consider fostering first. They either love it or find out it isnt what they thought, says Ms. Walkup. And, in the meantime, more rabbits get an opportunity for some attention and a chance at a furever home.

I was a pioneering discount brokerage, with commission fees as low as $8 as early as 1998. (Today my online stock trades cost $6.95.) Over the years I merged with or acquired K. Aufhauser, Datek, National Discount Brokers, thinkorswim and Scottrade. I was first to offer automated trades via touch-tone phone back in 1988. Today I have more than 10,000 employees, more than 11 million funded client accounts, and more than $1 trillion in client assets. I execute more than 900,000 trades daily. Who am I?

Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and well send you some tips to start investing. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. How to Build a Better RetirementMost of us are looking forward to retirement, but yours may not be as good as you hoped if you dont plan for it and make some smart moves like these: Pay off debt. Its OK to maintain a low-interest-rate mortgage, but work hard to pay off any high-interest-rate debt, such as that from credit cards. Have a plan. Run the numbers to see how much money youll need for retirement, how close you are to your goal and how you might get there. Online calculators such as those at calculator.net and finra.org/retirementcalculator can help, and a financial planner can be well worth hiring, too. (Youll find fee-only ones at napfa.org.) Save aggressively. Dont just save a little in your 401(k) and hope for the best. The more you save, and the earlier you do so, the more youll likely end up with in retirement. Long-term money stands a good chance of growing well in the stock market, and low-fee S&P 500 index funds can have you in stocks quickly and easily. Contribute generously to IRAs and/ or 401(k)s. Spend less. There are lots of relatively painless ways to cut back, such as by switching from cable TV to one or more streaming services and by shopping around for lower insurance rates on your various policies. Eat out a little less often and shop only when you need things, not just for fun. If you can spend $200 less per month, thats $2,400 per year, which would grow to more than $118,000 over 20 years at an average annual growth rate of 8 percent. Consider retiring a few years later than planned, to save more money and delay starting to tap your nest egg. You might enjoy company-sponsored health insurance a bit longer, too. Or aim to retire early, if you can. A good plan and discipline can have many retiring in their early 60s or sooner.

It offers solid, concise advice, along with stock and fund recommendations. The Wrong StockMy dumbest investment was when I trusted a day trader to execute an order to buy $10,000 worth of Apple at $27 per share. Instead, he bought shares of another company, which immediately went bye-bye. The guys boss? He stood behind this bozo. The lesson I learned is: Dont trust anyone working with your money. If you dont take care of your own business, then someone else will. I., onlineThe Fool Responds: If it was really a day trader who was managing your money, you probably would have done poorly, regardless. Day traders are known for buying and selling frequently, which racks up commission charges and has any gains taxed at generally higher tax rates. More important, day traders are known for losing money. No less an authority than the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has warned: Day traders typically suffer severe financial losses in their first months of trading, and many never graduate to profit-making status. If youd owned Apple stock for only a few hours or days, you would have lost out on a heck of a lot of future growth. Consulting financial professionals is fine, but as you concluded, its best to stay in control of your own money and do your own research and thinking, too, as no one has your best interests at heart as much as you do. A Fat Blue-Chip DividendTelecom giant AT&T (NYSE: T) has been around for generations in various forms, and its not done growing. Its shares have been beaten down due to competitive pressures and uncertainty surrounding its planned merger with Time Warner. Of course, as a stocks price falls, its dividend yield rises, and AT&Ts payout recently yielded a fat 6.2 percent. Better still, that payout is likely to increase in the future, as AT&T has boosted its dividend for 34 years in a row. AT&T generated roughly $18.3 billion in free cash flow over the trailing-12-month period. Its robust cash flow generation is likely to continue, thanks to its being an Internet of Things (IoT) platform provider and its strong positions in the still-reliable wireless service and video businesses. (The company will soon be rolling out its 5G network.) With the merger with Time Warner recently completed, AT&Ts long-term prospects are even better. The union will create one of the worlds leading entertainment producers, open up new service bundling opportunities and allow for the combined company to use AT&Ts strength in the mobile and internet spaces to get better advertising rates for Time Warner networks and content. AT&T is the second-largest wireless carrier in the U.S., and the nations top wireline and pay-TV service provider. Those businesses give it a wide defensive moat against its potential challengers. Give the company some consideration for your long-term portfolio. I trace my roots back to Alex Manoogian s scr e w products company that began making parts for the auto industry in Detroit in 1929. In 1954, Manoogian designed a revolutionary single-handle faucet that was a hit. Today Im a leader in home improvement and construction products, with more than 20 companies under my roof and dozens of manufacturing facilities worldwide. My brands include Behr paints, Delta and Hansgrohe faucets and fixtures, KraftMaid and Merillat cabinets, Milgard windows and doors, Kichler decorative and outdoor lighting and Hot Spring spas. My market value recently topped $12 billion. Who am I? (Answer: Masco) Market Share, ExplainedQWhats market share? M.R., Venice, FloridaAIt refers to the percentage of a market that a product, service or company commands, and its a useful measure to track when researching companies or industries. Think about smartphones, for example. If many of your friends use iPhones, you might assume that Apple enjoys the highest market share in the category. But actually, as of the end of March, Samsung had that honor, with a 20.5 percent global share; followed by Apple, with 14.1 percent; and the Chinese company Huawei, with 10.4 percent. (That means that 20.5 percent of smartphones sold worldwide in the last quarter were Samsung devices.) Its also good to pay attention to trends and growth rates. Apple may be in second place, but it gained share from the end of 2017 to the end of March 2018, rising to that 14.1 percent from 13.7 percent. Samsungs share shrank from 20.8 percent to 20.5 percent. As another example, the U.S. market share leader in ice cream brands last year was private label brands, with 20 percent of the market, followed by Breyers, with 9.2 percent; Ben & Jerrys, with 8.7 percent; and Haagen-Dazs, with 8.4 percent. ***QWhy cant I find stock listings in the newspaper on Mondays? C.C., SeattleAThe stock markets in America are closed on weekends, so there is no action to report on Mondays. Dont think you have to follow stocks daily moves, though. Its more important to keep up with how a company is performing than how its stock is moving. Great fortunes can be amassed by buying into companies youve researched well and believe in and then simply hanging on for the long term. Want more information about stocks?

A26 BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYstores from Walmart to Whole Foods. And if you see a product label listing organic Stevia, theres a 90 percent chance its Pyure Brands stevia theyre talking about. But perhaps most impressive is not that such a product would get its start in Collier County; most of the companys employees are under 30. And local: 85 percent are recent graduates of Florida Gulf Coast University, many of whom began as interns at the company when they were still taking classes. The entrepreneurship school there really prepares students, said Ben Fleischer, founder and CEO of Pyure Brands. He reached out to FGCU once he had his product ready. He needed help, so he got in touch with Dr. Sandra Kauanui, director of the Institute for Entrepreneurship at the school. She found his first intern. Nine years later, that student is vice president of operations. In school, it was very rare to me to see my peers get so excited about education, Mr. Fleischer said. So were in a really unique space now seeing that excitement with students that reminds me of myself. I was kind of all over the place then. Mr. Fleischer was putting himself in a sort of timeout when he originally moved to Naples in 2008. The self-taught entrepreneur didnt even go for the business school at the University of Maryland. Instead, he graduated with a degree in communications. But the upstate-New York native had also grown up working the ovens at his fathers bagel company before later managing its supermarket distribution. Now it was time to focus on his own work: creating a healthy, sugar-free energy drink. What better place to do it than Naples, where the only distraction was sugar sand beaches? I knew if I moved to New York City or Miami it would have been really tough for me to focus, Mr. Fleischer said. So its here in Collier County that Mr. Fleischer, now 39, developed Pyure Naples, what he calls the only stevia sweetener without that bitter aftertaste. He did it by experimenting in his own kitchen. An amateur food scientist, he later hired the lawyers who would go on to secure FDA-approval for stevia, opening the door to the companys competition. We figured out how to make stevia taste like sugar, Mr. Fleischer said, but not all stevia is created equal. The company grew 50 percent year over year, and now markets products such as maple syrup and non-GMO honey using the stevia plant. While Naples houses the sales and marketing operation, product development and management, Pyure Brands has about 10 co-packers around the U.S. along with warehousing on both coasts. Mr. Fleischer said his employees and their workplace dynamic deserve a lot of the credit. Were scrappy, were competitive and weve been figuring it out, he said. Its stressful, dont get me wrong, but its getting fun once you hit certain milestones and you learn and get better. Cooper Alligood, 21, can attest to that. He was working at a Naples pizza joint when a Pyure Brand executive came in for a pie. They got to chatting and within days, Mr. Alligood had ditched his serving and bartending gig to start his first internship. Hes been with the company two years and still takes classes at FGCU toward his finance degree. And hes benefited from learning alongside the more experienced employees and nonFGCU grads Mr. Fleischer has hired with more than 10 to 15 years in the industry. I love working here, Mr. Alligood said. Its completely changed my college career. I get to learn the concepts in class and apply them in the real world. Mr. Alligood was born and raised in Naples and hopes to stay, but not at the expense of new experiences. Mr. Fleischer said he gave the intern a leave of absence recently to try his hand at another internship. Mr. Alligood came back to the company afterwards, the better for it. The interns who take that challenge are the ones that stay here full time, Mr. Fleischer said. And by the time you graduate, guess what? Your jobs already here. Dr. Kauanui said companies like Pyure Brands are important for the local workforce and that what Mr. Fleischers doing is unique in its scope. Ive been using his product for years, she said of Pyure. Thats how we foster a startup community here, and thats how were keeping our young people here in our community. Through entrepreneurship is one way, and through employment is the other. Mr. Fleischer created a $50,000 scholarship fund for students at the Institute, which Dr. Kauanui said demonstrates a commitment to the partnership they formed a decade ago. It builds really strong relationships both with the university and the students, she said. New projects are on the horizon for Pyure Brands, which moved into its current office just last year. While the details are under wraps, Mr. Fleischer has hinted at new products and a new business that would work alongside his current one. Were kind of on fire, he said.

A larger decline in contract activity in the South offset gains in the Northeast, Midwest and West. The Pending Home Sales Index, a forward-looking indicator based on contract signings, decreased 0.5 percent to 105.9 in May from 106.4 in April and is down on an annual basis 2.2 percent. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says this years spring buying season will go down as one of unmet expectations. Pending home sales underperformed once again in May, declining for the second straight month and coming in at the second lowest level over the past year, he said. Realtors in most of the country continue to describe their markets as highly competitive and fast moving, but without enough new and existing inventory for sale, activity has essentially stalled. The lackluster spring, according to Mr. Yun, has primarily been a supply issue, and not one of weakening demand. If the recent slowdown in activity were because buyer interest is waning, price growth would start slowing, inventory would begin rising and homes would stay on the market longer. Instead, the underlying closing data in May showed that home price gains are still outpacing income growth, inventory declined on an annual basis for the 36th consecutive month, and listings typically went under contract in just over three weeks. With the cost of buying a home getting more expensive, its clear the summer months will be a true test for the housing market. One encouraging sign has been the increase in new home construction to a 10-year high, added Mr. Yun. Several would-be buyers this spring were kept out of the market because of supply and affordability constraints. The healthy economy and job market should keep many of them actively looking to buy, and any rise in inventory would certainly help them find a home. Mr. Yun now forecasts for existinghome sales in 2018 to decrease 0.4 percent to 5.49 million down from 5.51 million in 2017. The national median existing-home price is expected to increase around 5.0 percent. In 2017, existing sales increased 1.1 percent and prices rose 5.7 percent. The PHSI in the Northeast increased 2.0 percent to 92.4 in May, but is still 4.8 percent below a year ago. In the Midwest the index rose 2.9 percent to 101.4 SEE NAR, B16

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2018 REAL ESTATE B15Kalea Bay residents love the communitys amenitiesTower 2 now under construction A clubhouse should be the social and recreational centerpiece of a community, and at Kalea Bay, the gated, luxury residential high-rise community currently being developed on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, that couldnt be more true. There are several reasons buyers have decided to purchase at Kalea Bay, said Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. The first is the beautifully designed three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half-bath and four-bedroom/four-bath tower residences with Gulf views. The other is our spectacular main amenity area, which includes our community clubhouse. Not only is it a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but its now the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot main amenity area, which opened in early January, is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. The clubhouse features three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an openair bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a fitness center, a snack bar, a lakeside fire pit, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Lodge. The indoor/outdoor restaurant serves incredible meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with 4 Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as eight pickleball courts. Guest suites that can accommodate overnight guests and family members are also located nearby. Residents also have a shuttle service that originates from the clubhouse and takes them to the beach. Two of the top-rated beaches in the country are only minutes away from Kalea Bay, stated Lodge. They include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9. The completion of the main amenity area at Kalea Bay coincided with the completion the communitys first residential tower, which is sold out. Thats why in May construction began on the communitys second tower, said Lodge. As of early July, that tower has surpassed the 50 percent sold mark. 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/4.5bath plans with 3,919 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. Master suites, kitchens and main living areas in most units have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features. Like the first tower, Tower 200 will also have rooftop amenities including a pool, open-air fitness center and a sky lounge.Prices in Tower 200 begin at $1.4 million.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. Top: A fire pit at the clubhouse offers stunning views of the communitys first tower on the opposite end of the lake.

LONGEST TRACK RECORD OF FOOT & ANKLE SURGERY SUCCESS IN COLLIER COUNTYDreaming of clear, sparkling gulf waterThe beach has always been my escape, but it didnt start out that way. When my family moved to Southwest Florida from Ohio after the infamous blizzard of 1978, we landed on Fort Myers Beach. I immediately hated the landscape of Florida unlike Ohio, there were no big shade trees, no green grass, no hills to roll down. Then again, I was an angsty tween who missed her childhood friends, school and cousins back in her tiny hometown north of Dayton. I was homesick and I didnt really fit in down here. Its not easy to start a new life at 11 years old. Eventually, the only place I found solace was at the beach. We lived just a short walk away from the gulf, and I went often. The sound of the surf was calming. Id sit at the shore for hours, watching the tide the color of sea glass green slowly r oll in and out, and Id watch the hundreds of little coquina shells bury themselves back in the wet sand as the water receded. I remember filling my hand with sand and coquinas and how they tickled my palm as they burrowed. My mother always told me to remember the stingray shuffle so as not to step on a stinger or a jelly fish. I heeded her warning, but I could see clear to the bottom a stingray wouldnt be able sneak up on me. I could see straight to the sandy white bottom all the way from the shore to the sandbar. I hung out a lot on the sandbar just sitting there and fantasizing about being a mermaid or a famous actress or marrying into royalty or writing a book at 11, I had no fear of skin cancer as I sat there playing by myself on the sand bar, scooping up sand dollars and marveling at their squiggly-wriggly underbellies before setting them free. I think the beach saved my seventhgrade sanity the more time I spent there, the less I pleaded with my mom to let me go back to Ohio and live with my grandma. Finally, I stopped begging and grew to love my new surroundings, and all because of that sea glass green water that you could see clear through to the bottom. I continued to live on the beach until I was in my early 30s. Sunset walks kept my Zen in check. After a hard day of work, single-parenting and worrying about money, my version of happy hour was a beach stroll where I would fantasize about being a mermaid or a famous actress or marrying into royalty or writing a book. By then, though, I had smartened up and discovered sunscreen. Work took me away from my beloved beach and into the city, and I rarely get to our local beaches anymore. And, honestly, I dont know whats happened to them. I mean, I know whats happened my brain just doesnt get it. Hundreds of billions of gallons of lake water was sent down the Caloosahatchee on June 1, which has helped cause algae blooms that are unsafe for humans and for wildlife. I get that the Army Corp of Engineers has to release gross, brown water from Lake Okeechobee down the river into the once sea glass green waters of the gulf. I know that our beaches are strewn with dead, rotting fish, turtles and other marine life. Even a dead manatee, a victim of red tide, washed ashore behind a big, white beach house on Boca Grande last week. The photos were heartbreaking.Gov. Rick Scott has ordered that the corps find a way for the lake discharges to be pushed south to the Everglades and away from our coastal communities. Environmental activists have been pleading with him for years to make that decision. Now that hes campaigning for the U.S. Senate, hes managed to get around to it. Maybe thats just coincidental hard to say. But, its a start. A couple of weeks ago, my husband had to attend a work conference in Key Largo and I tagged along. While he was in classes, I spent my days by the water. Down in the Keys, its the bluest of blue, and while I love the color blue, Im partial to sea glass green and the kind of water that you can see straight clear to the very bottom. I hope Ill get to see that color again at our local beaches, its the best thing for an angsty 11-year-old. And for a grown woman who misses her coquinas, sand dollars and childhood dreams. stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYof playwriting, will run from July 12-29. It comes from that English sensibility that Oscar Wilde took to the heights, with verbal wit and dexterity, he says. Orton poked at the culture he was raised in. He saw hypocrisy wherever he turned. He finds the absurdity in it, the humor in it. He was one aggressive playwright. He was prepared to speak the unspeakable; this gave his plays their joy and danger, writes Mr. Ortons biographer, New Yorker magazine theater critic John Lahr, who calls the playwright a connoisseur of chaos. What the Butler Saw, considered Mr. Ortons best play, contains not only the obligatory multiple slamming doors and mistaken identity, but dropped trousers, a naked woman, cross-dressing and some of the best banter since Oscar Wilde. He mocks those in authority, Shakespeare and the idea of deus ex machina. He even pokes fun at the form of farce itself, having a character exclaim, Why are there so many doors? Was the house designed by a lunatic? Ortons plays put sexuality back on stage in all its exuberant, amoral and ruthless excess, Mr. Lahr writes in his introduction to Joe Orton: The Complete Plays. It is a sex farce, and there is a lot of flesh, says Mr. Leaming, but as is the case, the audience thinks its absurd that people are pursuing such a ridiculously low prize. On top of that, what Orton does is stick knives into the culture around him in this unbelievably funny way. Theres a wonderful moment, typical of what Orton does, when one character is begging to be taken to the police station. So (the doctor) turns to her and says, Do you think youll be safe in a police station? She says yes. The doctor turns to the audience and says, I wish I shared your optimism. And then it keeps moving. Its fantastic, that way. The play, first staged posthumously in London in 1969, is full of witty lines, such as the comment, Just when one least expects it, the unexpected always happens and, Im not mad. It only looks that way. And a characters complaint: Doctor, doctor! The world is full of naked men running in all directions! People dont stop running in and out of doors, trying to solve the problem, Mr. Leaming says. Its so much fun to be a part of and to watch. Were having the time of our lives. Its got just enough of an edge to it that keeps it from being simple-minded. British farces have a lot of substance. This is a sex farce that has substance on top of the standard rules for sex farce. Hes been wanting to do the show for 40 years, he says, adding that he recently discovered that the expression what the butler saw refers to a type of Victorian pornography of what the butler sees, peering through a keyhole.The start of Dog DaysWhat the Butler Saw is part of a summer offering called Dog Days Theatre, now in its second season. The Banyan Theatre Company used to rent the Cook Theatre for its performance space during the summers, Mr. Leaming says. But when its artistic director died, the theater closed and was dark during the summer of 2016. Im always looking for ways to expand the footprint of the Conservatory, he says. Were training professionals. The community is becoming more and more year-round. We decided to produce our own season. The summer offerings include students in the Conservatorys acting program, alums and professional actors, costumers and set designers. The fare is intelligent and literate and sophisticated, but also capable of satisfying an audiences interest during the dog days of summer, describes Mr. Leaming, who is the producer of Dog Days Theatre. Theres such a need for this during the summer, he adds. Apparently, audiences and other supporters agree. Last summer, before they even opened their first season, they received a grant for their second season from the Tourist Development Commission and then again for a third season. Were getting a very solid response, Mr. Leaming says. While What the Butler Saw plays in July, The Turn of the Screw, a Jeffrey Hatcher play based on a Henry James short story, plays in August. Mr. Leaming had commissioned the play in 1991 while running the Portland Stage Company. It had an incredible life for a while, then fell off the map, because it was done by everybody, he says. The plot revolves around a governess with two charges. She believes theyre being pursued by two malevolent and deviant spirits. Or, perhaps shes just crazy. What Hatcher did, he created it for actors, Mr. Leaming explains. One actor plays the governess, and the other plays everyone else: the children, the ghosts, the housekeeper, the man who owns the mansion. Its wonderfully theatrical, a real workout for two actors. Chris Clavelli, a well-known member of Fort Myers Florida Repertory Theatre ensemble as both actor and director, will direct The Turn of the Screw. Ive been trying to get Chris to work with the Conservancy for a while, says Mr. Leaming, whos thrilled its finally happening. He has a very busy schedule. Its perfect for him. Meanwhile, Mr. Leaming continues to receive positive feedback. Someone I had never met came up to me and said, Im so excited youre doing Dog Days. Thank you. We had the time of our lives. Its so good for us yearrounders! Mr. Leaming recalls. Theres a buzz about it. Even people in my gym are coming up to me (and commenting about it.) Theres an audience out there. Theyre showing up. This is not pabulum were producing. This is good for the summer, but its also smart theater, and thats very exciting.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 Enjoy long walks on the beach, watching sunsets and catching sh! ON THE WATERAn Old Florida fishing paradise to fantasize about BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentA. W. Dimock and his son, Julian, chronicled Southwest Florida history in the early 20th century perhaps more profoundly than any of their contemporaries. Their names, though, are likely unknown to most 21st century Floridians. They recorded on film and in words what a now long-lost Florida was like more than a century ago. In 1907, A. W. Dimock turned 65 and Julian turned 34. Their travels took them along Floridas Gulf Coast in an unnamed craft A. W. Dimock described as follows: a yawl-rigged, flat-bottomed boat 37X14, with a draught of three feet, a cabin 20X12X6 feet, two skiffs, and a small launch. Fittings and furnishings were severely practical, and included dark room, tools for all ordinary repair work, and fishing, hunting and photographic outfits. Florida Weekly found the elder Mr. Dimocks account in a 1987 book, Tales of Old Florida. The title of the piece was Cruising on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Archeologist Theresa Schober knows about the Dimocks. She said in an email to Florida Weekly that between 1904 and 1913 the two men, both New York financiers, made at least 10 trips to Southwest Florida. They often spent months on these trips, according to Ms. Schober, the manager of Roberts Ranch in Immokalee. Marco Island was their base and they sailed a houseboat up and down the coast and used smaller vessels to venture into the Everglades.Their collection of work documented threatened birds during the plume hunting craze, Seminole ways and trading camps in the Everglades, white and African-American settlers forging new lives in fairly inhospitable places, and of course, the majestic Atlantic tarpon, wrote Ms. Schober.In 1907, long before GPS and radar and radio, the Dimocks traveled extensively, taking numerous photos, from Marco Island north to Charlotte Harbor. Mr. Dimock the elder wrote evocatively of what they came across 111 years ago. At Boca Grande we anchored north of the pass, safe from everything but a gale from the northeast, which is what came to us with the going down of the sun, A.W. wrote. A strong tide held the boat in the trough of the sea, and a wicked roll caused havoc in the cabin, where a bottle of oil breaking on the floor made walking thereon distressing.As the ride rushed past, it created a wake of phosphorescent fire, and an occasional wave breaking over us bathed the boat in liquid moonshine, while filling the cockpit with water that had to be bailed out.Mr. Dimocks account and seven photos fill nine pages in Tales of Old Florida. Only snippets can be quoted here but they provide a great sense of a fishing paradise that modern anglers can likely only fantasize about. For example: Following the storm, the fishing at Boca Grande was marvelous. The mile-wide pass was filled with minnows by a thousand million, making dark patches upon the water, often many acres in extent. Among them porpoises rolled, thousands of tarpon leaped, the fins of hundreds of great sharks cut lanes through them, uncountable cavalla, Spanish mackerel, bluefish, ladyfish, and other predatory small fry, devouring and being devoured, beat the water into surflike waves; while, moved by a single impulse, here, there, and everywhere, minnows by the yard or acre were leaping three feet in the air, filling it with rainbow-tinted masses of spray. And so on. Their trip included a stop at Chokoloskee Bay, in what is now Collier County but was then still part of Lee County. Here we found a party of Seminole Indians, paved the way for a visit to their camp, and obtained a full-grown wildcat or lynx, Mr. Dimock wrote. He and others built a cage for the animal but eventually they freed it.In 1907, the two Dimocks and the rest of their party didnt have ready access to well-stocked marinas or modern refrigeration. As their journey wound down the elder Dimock wrote of their victual situation.Sweet bay leaves had supplanted coffee, palmetto cabbage was our vegetable, cocoa-plums, custard-apples, wild limes and lemons our fruit, and hour by hour we measured the gasoline left in the tank, Mr. Dimock wrote. Now, the world of Florida in 1907 appears primitive. Mr. Dimock, though, started his account with how much the world of Florida boats had changed in the 20 years prior to this journey. We now see floating houses, with every attribute of a home, from a chef to a canary, from a library to a pet cat, with 60 horsepower engines in the basement, in which the owner changes his residence while he sleeps, and only knows where he is living when his captain tells him, Mr. Dimock wrote. Glittering launches, polished dinghies, and a uniformed crew go with this outfit, which suggests yachting rather than the cruising I care for. Stately yachts at stated times rattle their anchor-chains just within Boca Grande, while nearby their chartered craft lodge the guides who know the tricks of the tides and the tarpon and reduce the labor of the fisherman to a minimum. Their last trip was made in 1913. By then, according to Ms. Schober, Julian Dimock had taken 2,000 photographs of Florida. The Dimocks wrote about their adventures for publications such a Colliers, Field and Stream, Harpers, Scribners and other publications. STATE ARCHIVES OF FLORIDA / DIMOCKA.W.

While the name is vintage, everything else is new including the place it will hold in the market. This is the most aggressive name in the Chevy lineup, and so it also gets an intimidating design. The face was inspired by another legendary aggressor, the Camaro. Although the headlights look like they are part of the bright LED cluster on top of the fenders, it actually comes from a lower section usually reserved for fog lights. Jeep and Nissan have both tried this distinct design cue on other crossovers. Theyve since moved on, but it still looks fresh and new on the Blazer. The Blazers profile has sharp lines that run over multiple panels and a blacked-out D-pillar for a hint of a floating roof. Its very much like a Nissan Murano or a Lexus RX (the comparisons are likely no accident, because Chevrolet is looking for a premium feel.) While attractive, there is a bit of curiosity why Chevrolet would offer another two-row crossover. The Blazer will share the same platform as the larger Traverse, it will be built alongside the smaller Equinox and its engine lineup closely resembles the GMC Acadia. It creates a vehicle that focuses on offering big room, and folks today are enjoying going big. On top of that, a name like Blazer perfectly taps into the nostalgia of the 30and 40-something market. It reminds them of the SUV they had (or aspired to) when younger, and now its back with a premium/performance presentation that takes advantage of the wistfulness while upgrading into their current lifestyle. The interior especially fits into this theme. The steering wheel has premium cross-stitching on every trim level, and the center stack has the large vents/climate control system borrowed from the Camaro. It gives the driver a sporty feeling that is reminiscent of a time when there were no kids to transport. In the rear, the Blazer focuses on legroom, and even offers five inches of extra adjustment to dial-in a balance between passenger space and the cargo room behind it. That way everyone from teenagers to the date-night twosome can be comfortable. The engine choices are a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and the optional 3.6-liter V6.

Taylor Single Barrel Buffalo Trace Calment Farms 10 yr. Sponsored by: Bourbon OnboardSIP SAVOR SAIL are expected to be similar. The Chevy also shares the same wheelbase, but it could be expected to be a bit lighter. Where the Blazer is likely to earn its most sporting credibility is with the chassis. The all-wheel drive versions were designed to have a little rally car flair when driven hard. Its unknown right now how much it will take to get a rebel yell out of school pick-up line, but it will be fun to find out when production examples are available for test drives. The new Blazer needs to deliver on the Camaro-like experience to back up the styling. That makes it distinctive enough to elevate it above the valueprice appeal in the rest of the brands crossover lineup. It may not steal customers away from a BMW X6, but if the new Blazer stays unique and performance-minded, it will be a clear winner over the Ford Edge Sport. Of course, there will be a new round of competition for this new crossover. Ford will dip into the nostalgia well with a new truck-based Bronco, and Jeep has its eye on growing the lineup. So, while pricing has yet to be announced, the new Blazer will likely be competitive from the moment it hits dealers in early 2019. Chevrolet is offering something premium and sporty wrapped in a family-friendly package. While the brand already has value-mined crossovers, this new one is a foray into adding personality. Thats the difference between buyers making a practical choice with their heads and an emotional one that includes their hearts. The Blazer is no longer the big truckbased SUV with a removable top that it once was. But this car-like performance crossover is carrying on that name to (hopefully) deliver that same hint of youthful freedom.
C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYWould a band by any other name sound the same?I was sitting in an editorial meeting when my boss mentioned something about a bunny rescue story she was expecting. The comment just hit my brain at an odd angle, and I started laughing. Bunny Rescue. Thatd be a great name for a band, I said. My co-workers agreed. Especially if it was a goth band or one that played heavy metal or death metal, I added. Thats exactly what I was thinking! said another editor. Were writers. This is how our minds work. Playing their hit song, Kill, Thumper, Kill! I thought, but didnt say out loud. Wed moved on to another topic. Great band names are everywhere, if youre just open to them. I saw a commercial the other night in which a man was patting the tummies of three pugs. He mentioned something about playing pug bongos. Thatd be a great name for a band: Pug Bongo, I thought. Back in the early s, when I was a regular freelance writer for the Chicago Tribune, I interviewed Adam Dolgins, a marketing manager for the now-defunct Spy magazine, about a book he had written titled Rock Names: From ABBA to ZZ Top: How Rock Bands Got Their Names. Bands apparently come up with names in a variety of ways, and readers are curious about how it happens. It was a fun book to peruse, and Mr. Dolgins was a good interview. The fact that I still remember that article 25 years later says something. (Ive talked to so many people for so many stories over the past decades that sometimes I cant even remember whether Ive interviewed someone or not.) The author told me he planned to update the book on a regular basis, but I was only able to find a revised second edition printed in 1995, a couple years after the original. To my dismay, I read in his new introduction that Mr. Dolgins had made up the story about how he came up with the idea to write the book. He admitted he had not ever wondered: What is a Jefferson Airplane, anyway? And for that matter, whos Pink Floyd? He said he couldnt remember exactly what group he heard on the radio had made him starting thinking about the origins of band names; he just thought the Jefferson Airplane anecdote was a good story to tell journalists. But I was glad to see he credited the Chicago Tribune as being one of the publications that had given him generous coverage. It was interesting to thumb through the revised edition of the book, even though it was printed before bands called Cage the Elephant, Imagine Dragons, twenty one pilots and Portugal. The Man came into being. Mr. Dolgins noted that more than a few bands have taken their names from books. A Flock of Seagulls named itself after the sappy but bestselling Jonathan Livingston Seagull. The Velvet Underground took their name from a paperback about S/M and the underground sex scene in the s. Supertramp was also named after a book: The Autobiography of a Supertramp, and Steppenwolf named itself after the Herman Hesse classic of the same name, a novel found on almost every college students shelf. Surprisingly, Mott the Hoople was also the title of a book. The Icicle Works named itself after a Frederick Pohl science-fiction short story. Veruca Salt was named for a character in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Uriah Heep, of course, was named after a character in the Charles Dickens classic, Great Expectations. And Steely Dan, Mr. Dolgins wrote, took the name from a steam-powered dildo in the William Burroughs book Naked Lunch. (And the band Deacon Blue took its name from a Steely Dan song.) Soft Machine was also influenced by Mr. Burroughs, naming itself after one of his novels. Bands also took inspiration from William Faulkners books. Pylon named itself after one of his novels. (And while this is not mentioned in Mr. Dolgins book, the metalcore band As I Lay Dying is also named after a Faulkner classic.) Band name ideas come from anywhere and everywhere. Toad the Wet Sprocket named itself after a fictitious band in a Monty Python skit. Husker Du is named after a childrens board game that was popular in the 1950s. (The name means Do you remember? in Swedish, the band explained.) Buffalo Springfield was a sign on a steamroller. Band names have been inspired by other band names. Probably most famously, The Beatles liked the name of Buddy Holly and the Crickets, and named themselves similarly (though, as Dolgins noted, there was a motorcycle gang in the 1954 film The Wild Ones called The Beetles). And Chubby Checkers name is a takeoff on Fats Domino. Unfortunately, some of my favorite band names, such as !!! and Southern Culture on the Skids, are not included in his book. Back when I interviewed him all those years ago, I asked Mr. Dolgins what name he might choose for a band. His response: I always thought Grease Pencil would be a great name. But I still think Bunny Rescue has promise. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com

CONTRACT BRIDGEThe disappearing trickBY STEVE BECKERDummy reversals are not easy to recognize because they require declarer to adopt an unnatural line of play in order to succeed. Take this case where South is in six diamonds and West leads the K-Q of hearts. Declarer ruffs, and the question is what to do next. The most obvious line of play is to draw trumps and stak e the outcome on a spade finesse essentially a 50-50 proposition. If East has the king, the slam is made; if West has the king, the slam goes down. However, there is a different method of play that offers declarer much better than a 50 percent chance for the contract a dummy reversal. He should therefore reject the spade finesse in favor of the alternative approach. South starts by leading a diamond to the ten at trick three and ruffs another heart, then leads a diamond to the queen and trumps dummys last heart. At this point, since South has led trumps twice and ruffed hearts three times, he has no more trumps in his hand. He next plays a club to the ace and cashes the ace of diamonds, simultaneously drawing Wests last trump while discarding his four of spades. Declarers spade loser thus disappears, and he scores the rest of the tricks with the K-Q-J-10 of clubs and ace of spades. When dummy first comes down, it is certainly not obvious to declarer that his spade loser can eventually be discarded on one of dummys trumps. Thats why dummy reversals are so often overlooked. In choosing the dummy reversal over the spade finesse, it is important for declarer to first compare the merits of the two lines of play. The former approach succeeds whenever the missing trumps are divided 3-2 a 68 percent probability while the spade finesse wins only half the time, so he should opt for the dummy reversal.

The premise may be a bit different, but not much feels new, or fresh. Its a downer when you spend 128 minutes watching a movie and leave feeling like youve seen it before. Rated PG-13.American 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.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.Life of the Party (Melissa McCarthy, Matt Walsh, Molly Gordon) After her husband (Walsh) leaves her, Deanna (McCarthy) returns to college where her daughter Maddie (Gordon) is a senior to get her degree. Youll think its going in predictable directions, but it is delightfully surprising and funny. Rated PG-13.RBG (Ruth Bader Ginbsurg, Gloria Steinem, Bill Clinton) The life and career of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg takes center stage in this revealing tell-all documentary. We learn about RBG both personally and professionally, and by the end its hard to not have immense respect for her accomplishments. Rated PG. Avengers: Infinity War (Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Josh Brolin) The Avengers and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) unite when villainous Thanos (Brolin) tries to take over the galaxy. Be prepared for anything, MCU fans, and rest assured the action, effects, and humor are all top notch. Rated PG-13.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.

AM PM AM PM LATE ST F ILMSOceans 8Is it worth $10? NoTheres a reason the George Clooney/ Brad Pitt Oceans 11 trilogy felt played out by the end its hard to come up with original ideas for heist movies. Yet here we are with a Sandra Bullock/Cate Blanchett spinoff titled Oceans 8, which woefully fails to breathe new life into the franchise. Bullock plays Debbie Ocean, the sister of Clooneys unseen and now deceased (or is he?) Danny. Bullock is fresh out of prison, and we learn that she spent her five years in the slammer plotting a heist. To pull it off, she needs a team. Enter long-time friend Lou (Blanchett), computer hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna), jewelry expert Amita (Mindy Kaling), fashion designer Rose (Helena Bonham Carter), pickpocket Constance (Awkwafina), and Debbies old accomplice Tammy (Sarah Paulson). Youll notice there are only seven women listed here. No, I didnt forget anyone. The eighth person becomes predictable as the movie plays, but nonetheless should not be revealed in a review. The plan: Convince actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway) to hire Rose to design her dress for the upcoming Met Gala in New York City. Then, convince Cartier to allow Kluger to wear a necklace valued at $150 million. Then, steal the necklace, and have a good enough cover story to get away with it. Sounds fun, right? The issues are in the editing and Gary Ross directing. The film needs more style, visual flourishes, and a quicker pace. And clarity. Not enough is learned about each ladys role early on, which leads to narrative blurriness when we should be getting hooked into the story. Obviously not everything will be disclosed (we want clever twists in the finale, after all), but we need more in terms of each womans function to keep the viewer engaged. For example, Paulsons Tammy is a fence. What is a fence, you ask? Ive seen the movie and still have no idea. Why not include us in the fun?! You cant keep the viewer at this far a distance when you want him/ her to be smiling and playing along. Rihannas Nine Ball has two of the best scenes. One involves scanning the necklace, and the other prominently features wheaten terriers. These moments use technology and creativity, and show what the movie couldve been if more of this ingenuity came through in a compelling way. To its credit, the last third of the film, highlighted by James Corden as an insurance investigator, picks up some slack. By then its too late, though, and the twists, while clever, arent quite worth the journey to get to them. Want to know how lame Oceans 8 is? The car ride home was about a half hour. At no point did the wife and I discuss the film. One would think that a movie about a major jewel heist, and all the deception and intricate planning it entails, starring a whos who of Hollywood leading ladies, wouldve led to some discussion about what we just saw. But no. Oceans 8 is the worst thing a movie can be: instantly forgettable. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Banks were approached for roles but were unable to commit.

Sand Paper Press. 208 pages. Deluxe Trade Paperback, $24. In seven well-shaped chapters, Arlo Haskell packs an enjoyable and frequently astonishing history of Key Wests Jewish community. Hearing of the topic, some people will assume that this is a slender thread to spin into a book. They would be wrong, however. Mr. Haskells research has turned up a considerable amount of information that brings to life 144 years of Jewish involvement in this most idiosyncratic town. The chapters bite off chronological slices of history, each focusing on the economic and cultural aspects of Jewish life. Thus, the journey begins with a discussion of sailors and merchants in an era of military events, stressing the importance of Key West as a port town, a multilingual place that had an international flair. In the first half of the 19th century, the Jewish community was tiny, hardly a real community. Early Jewish settlers included Mordecai White and Samuel Cline, who were tailors and clothes merchants. The naval presence brought them customers. During a 20-year span that followed the initial attraction of Jews to Key West, opportunities in a growth industry took hold and swelled the population, including the Cuban and the Jewish population. Samuel Seidenberg was the first manufacturer to capitalize on the fact that a cigar as good as the Cuban ones could be made in Key West at significantly lower cost. He constructed a huge factory. His Jewish rivals included M. Myerson, Max Marx, the Pohalski brothers and Julius Ellinger. The authors narrative of the Key West tobacco boom shows how it promoted the towns economy, attracting investment with its hundreds of employees. The Pohalski brothers built a company corner of town with homes for their workers. Their section of Key West gave rise to dry good and grocery stores, as well as a drug store and a saloon. These leaders were primarily secular Jews. As he traces the growth of the Jewish presence in Key West, Mr. Haskell keeps us in touch with larger issues of the time, including the Civil War and the Ten Years War fought to liberate Cuba from the Spanish Empire. He points out parallels in the age-old Jewish struggle for autonomy and independence and the 19th century Cuban struggle for the same. He points out the need for Key Wests Jews to form alliances with exiled Cubans who, under the leadership of Jos Mart, had made Key West their command center. The latter decades of the 19th century mark the beginning of a true Jewish community. New Jewish settlers in Key West often continued their European enterprises as peddlers and shopkeepers. Though Key West was ravaged by a fire in 1886, the rebuilding of the town brought new opportunities. Abram Wolkowsky and other Eastern European Jews shared religious customs, the Yiddish language and the experience of exile. Slowly, Je wish institutions begin to take hold. Congregation Bnai Zion, still functioning, gives 1887 as its date of origin. A Key West chapter of the Jewish Alliance emerged in 1891, its primary concern to establish a Jewish cemetery which it did. The first two decades of the 20th century witness a strong, thriving Key West Jewish community. The Jewish congregation held services and other activities on the second floor of the Fine familys hardware store. Two powerful hurricanes crippled Key West and challenged the future of the community and its synagogue. In the 1920s, severe restrictions in U.S. immigration policies created tumult for would-be Jewish settlers in Key West and elsewhere. engaged in smuggling aliens. They were also busy defending themselves against the menace of the Ku Klux Klan and other manifestations of anti-Semitism. Weather disasters continued to threaten. Though several hundred Jews resided in Key West in 1912, the number had shrunk to barely 200 when Rabbi Mendelsohn left in 1919. A decade later, the community had almost vanished. All of Key West had fallen upon hard times. However, a renaissance was at hand. Americas war effort transformed Key West, once again, into a Navy town. philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com

For some, its an elaborate cedar chest, designed to keep moths away from expensive woolens and other fabrics. For others, it may be a basic cardboard box, into which treasured mementoes of a lifetime are tucked. Or even a simple jewelry box, filled with photos, love letters and memories. My fathers maternal grandmother, whom we called Granny, had a domed trunk that had held her trousseau, its original contents no doubt stitched by hand in the light of a kerosene lamp. My grandmother Dorothy had a blond wood Lane cedar chest from the 1940s. It had a waterfall front and was filled with old chenille bedspreads, if I recall. Thats my dads family. My mother was far luckier. Her paternal grandmother, whom everyone called Grandma Bolender, wanted only the best for her children. So for my grandfather, George, and his sister, Jean Ann, she filled hope chests. The Jacobean-style chests stood in the hall and were filled with quilts, sheets and blankets for each to have quality items with which to start housekeeping. I dont know what happened to Jean Anns hope chest, but sometime in the early 1960s, Grandma lovingly filled Grandpas chest with quilts made by his mother, elegant linen hand towels that bore her monogram and other goodies, and gave it to my mother, who displayed the piece in our living room. Regrettably, my dad cut the legs and stretchers off the piece, rankling my mother and transforming the chest into a low perch that has held televisions over the past half-century. That wasnt its only transformation. When antiquing pieces became the rage, my mother duly gave the chest a white glaze. She later covered it in red, making the mass-produced piece more interesting than it was to begin with. As children, we were not supposed to open the chest without supervision. I remember the anticipation I had as my mother opened it and I still get a little tingle of excitement even today when she lifts the lid One of Grandma Bolenders quilts still lies rolled out of sight and out of mind, seemingly new more than 70 years after she pieced it together. The white eyelet dress Grandma made 60 years ago for my moms high school graduation also is there, a testament to Grandmas skills as a seamstress. But the chest also reflects the marriage of my parents. The dress my mother and her friend Nancy made for her wedding in 1962 is there, as are my fathers baby clothes. My grandmother Dorothy had hoped for a girl, so there are dainty pink dresses and booties, along with the Oshkosh coveralls he wore as a boy, adding another layer to the treasure in the chest. If only it could talk. Dont miss...The West Palm Beach Antiques Festival The monthly show is July 6-8 at the South Florida Fairgrounds, 9067 Southern Blvd., West Palm Beach.

Its probably English and it dates from the late 19th or early 20th centuries, and is made of lacquered wood and painted in a chrysanthemum design that takes a cue from the Aesthetics Movement and looks ahead to the sensuous Art Nouveau movement. I love the gilding that edges the flowers and their stems and leaves. It originally had compartments and trays inside for holding treasures those have disappeared. But red velvet still frames the mirror in the top of the lid, and it begs one to ask who might have gazed at themselves in that mirror in days past.

The Menu: www.billssteakandseafood. com The Details: Im not a fish person, but I brought a companion who I felt was up to the task of assaulting Bills vaunted New England-style clam bake dish. A pound of Maine steamers, another pound of Prince Edward Island mussels and a steamed Maine lobster weighing at least 1 1/4 pound. Not to mention all the fixings: the hot dog cleverly placed in each claw, a baked potato, sweet potato and an ear of corn. Oh, and she received a generous helping of New England clam chowder to start. Needless to say, my friend went home full and with a big tin foil package of leftovers. Bring a friend if you want to take on this daunting dish, and know that you might fight over that lobster. The meat was perfectly cooked and slipped right out of the shell. One More Thing: I had the prime rib and thought its funny how seafood restaurants often have a knack for hitting prime rib out of the park. My beautiful slab of meat came with a healthy cup of au jus and a nice sweet potato on the side. Also, customer appreciation day at Bills is Sunday, July 8. Enjoy a steamed lobster for $9.99, a pound of steamers for $8.99, an 8-ounce filet mignon dinner for $15.99 and $1 oysters on the half shell. Robbie Spencer firstname.lastname@example.org

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C23 CUISINETacos & Tequila tweaks template for tortilla treatsTacos & Tequila Cantina has only been open about six weeks at the new University Village near Florida Gulf Coast University, and its located on the back side of the retail center where it cant be seen from Ben Hill Griffin Parkway. You wouldnt know these things from the packed house on a recent weeknight. There were college students, of course, though not as many as there likely will be come fall. But there also were seniors and families with children who found their way to the colorful faux-rustic Tex-Mex cantina.This in an area not exactly barren of burritos, from gas-station duplexes to grocery-taquerias to corporate chains. But Tacos & Tequila, which originated in Naples five years ago and now includes three locations, takes a slightly different approach. A whole new taco experience, the companys website promises. Tex Mex at its best, with popular Americana sprinkled into your favorite south of the border treats. What that means is handmade tortillas stuffed with unusual fillings: Cuban mojo pork with black beans and plantains; pancake-battered fried chicken with bacon and maple syrup; and tofu marinated with Korean chili sauce and dressed with house-made kimchi.There are more traditional options, such as braised chicken, carne asada, carnitas and spit-roasted al pastor tacos, along with enchiladas, burritos and fajitas with meat, seafood or fire-roasted vegetables. Its fun to mix it up though at $3.50 to $5.50 a taco it cant match the $1-$2 price point of mom-and-pop Mexican joints. Theres even a Moms taco, the kind you may have grown up with, where the tortilla shell is hard and the ground beef is seasoned Ortega style. But first, there are a dozen-and-ahalf specialty margaritas to consider, or something like 60 premium tequilas to sip ($7.50-$14) I lost count, possibly due to the strength of my Thyme for a Marg concoction ($12). The heady, herbal drink combines Avion Blanco tequila, Solerno blood orange liqueur, agave nectar, muddled blackberries and house mix. Its fruity, refreshing and generously poured. Based on our tables sampling, I can also recommend the more subtle Cucumberita, the blood orange margarita and the sangria (though it came out once with fruit and once without). We had warm, thin tortilla chips to snack on while strategizing our taco tasting. The accompanying salsa lacked kick and tasted very salty. Its mildness seemed out of step with the general amped-up nature of the menu and the dcor, which involves a lot of Dia de los Muertos artwork, chandeliers fashioned with booze bottles, and corrugated metal surfaces. Even the upholstery sports calavera skulls. Before you get started on your taco testing, there are appetizers worth checking out. Grilled corn on the cob slathered with mayonnaise and crumbled cotija is a common street snack in Mexico, but its rare to find elotes ($5) in restaurants here. Tacos & Tequila uses ancho chili aioli, which imparts more flavor than peppery heat and helps the salty cheese cling to the golden kernels. The corn was perfectly cooked to juicy sweetness, while the husks were slightly charred. Also worth trying is the T&T relleos ($8.50), fresh jalapenos stuffed with cheddar, Monterey Jack and cotija and with lightly coated with a Modelo Negra batter and fried to a golden crisp, the cheeses oozing out. They were drizzled with smoky chipotle crema and showered with cilantro for a final flourish.Our pleasant, attentive server had the courses timed well, and made sure we werent lacking beverages. Dishes were cleared and the check delivered promptly.The tacos are helpfully divided into three categories traditional, T&T (house signature) and yogi (healthier). Soft corn tortillas are used for the traditional versions, including al pastor ($3.75 per taco) and camarones ($5). The former contained a good amount of shaved pork coated with adobo sauce and chunks of grilled pineapple; the latter had plump, juicy grilled shrimp glazed with tequila and lime juice. Both were garnished with chopped onion, shaved radish and cilantro. Limes were furnished for spritzing, too.From the T&T list, the Korean beef ($5.50) was a standout, marinated with gochujang chili sauce and laced with house-made kimchi that had some fire to it. The Baja ($5) had moist grilled mahi laced with jalapeno cilantro slaw and contrasting avocado crema for a good balance, while the South American ($5) contained succulent braised short rib splashed with chimichurri and red pepper sauce. I was less fond of the backyard taco ($4) with shredded pork in barbecue sauce, caramelized onions and fried pickle slices; the sauce seemed overly sweet. While we were impressed with most of the tacos, the pulled chicken enchiladas ($13 with beans and rice) were less than stellar. The meat was bland and so finely chopped it had little texture left. We ordered one with red chili sauce and one with tomatillo but couldnt taste any difference between the two under their blankets of melted orange and white cheese. The refried beans and rice were pretty standard.Not so standard is the Grande Burrito Challenge, an overstuffed 6-pound $25 burrito. If you can finish it in 45 minutes or less you win a T-shirt. If you go that route, you probably wont be interested in desserts such as sopapillas and flan. All we could manage was a shared order of churros ($5.50 for four), which were warm, crisp and scented with cinnamon sugar. The chocolate espresso sauce provided for dipping made the perfect companion.Tacos & Tequila Cantina isnt likely to displace my favorite sort-of-a-dive taqueria in my heart, but I do appreciate the effort to bring some different flavors to the taco table. drew STERWALDcuisine@floridaweekly.com Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor The Baja taco, top, contains grilled mahi while the Backyard taco is filled with barbecued pork and fried pickle slices.
