Inside, the veterans assembling care packages for troops abroad were even more decorated. And bustling among them, carrying finished boxes across the church hall, was a group of kids. They arent officially military yet, but at first glance their uniforms might prove otherwise; their ribbons denoted marksmanship, CPR and swimming aptitude. They are the Naples Young Marines; a group of kids aged 8 to 18 years old, learning the ins and outs of the military lifestyle in a co-ed group. And theyre polite, articulate and well behaved to boot. Sixteen-year-old Laurel Anselmis ribbons took up a sizable block on her fatigues over the left pocket.

I first realized my earlier failure to recognize his genius when an artist northwest of London carved out 215 yards worth of letters in a farmers grain field visible from the presidents helicopter, and probably from space. Written in Russian, the giant logo proclaimed, F#!+ TRUMP. At that point I was forced to admit my own blindness and negligence for the last year-and-a-half. Too many flower-waving, love-thyneighbor loudmouths like me criticize Mr. Trump in print without also acknowledging his effort to resurrect the history and tradition of elegant insults, often poetic art forms in the Western world. Flinging creative barbs should be more roundly feted by all of us who have grown lackluster the skill an art celebrated by such extraordinary giants of the past as Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde, Theodore Roosevelt and H.L. Mencken. True, Mr. Trump has shown no particular interest in any other art. As the novelist Dave Eggers pointed out in a New York Times opinion last month, The White House has been, and is likely to remain, home to the first presidency in American history that is almost completely devoid of culture. In the 17 months that Donald Trump has been in office, he has hosted only a few artists of any kind. One was the gun fetishist Ted Nugent. Another was Kid Rock. They went together (and with Sarah Palin). Neither performed. All other presidents Republican or Democrat have hosted steady streams of singers, writers, musicians, painters, poets, dancers, actors and cinematographers. The president does appear to enjoy periodic eruptions of martial fervor from the United States Marine Corps Band, but not much else. Marine musicians can play or shoot, strip, clean and play or shoot again both their M-4 rifles and their trombones or trumpets at the same time, one in each hand no doubt while running five miles in their combat boots at a comfortable 6-per pace, carrying 60-pound packs and humming the Marine Corps Hymn under their breaths to avoid boredom. Thats probably fun to watch and listen to for a few minutes, maybe once a year. But it would be nice to have a broader perspective when it comes to art. Thats why Im so pleased with this president. In the classical tradition of the nine Greek muses who inspired literature, the arts, history and science, Mr. Trump has single-handedly inspired creative insults, an art historically feared and reviled in oppressive societies. He also appears to have resurrected the dead. H.L. Mencken (1880-1956), for example, noted about Mr. Trump and us that on some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their hearts desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. And Teddy Roosevelt (1858-1919), No. 26, who would have had little sympathy for Mr. Trumps bone spurs in the face of military service that so many less fortunate sons (and daughters) have to endure, may have been talking not just about President McKinley (No. 25), but also about No. 45 when he suggested the man has no more backbone than a chocolate clair. Mark Twain (1835-1910), too, was probably referring not just to Congress and such leaders as Sen. Mitch McConnell and Rep. Paul Ryan, but also to President Trump, when he pointed out, Fleas can be taught nearly anything that (No. 45) can. With prescient foresight, Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) noted in his understated but scathing way, Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go. Clearly, he could see the president coming. And probably going. When it comes to insults, Mr. Trump himself is a Division III contender, only: He calls people liars, idiots, he says shes a slob, disgusting, or hes a lowenergy person (Jeb Bush), or shes a lowIQ individual (Maxine Waters). Thats pretty run-of-the-mill stuff, but hes a muse, not a poet. The muse themselves generally dont come up with much more than cotton candy, if anything at all. Thats not their job. But they inspire the greatest talents of a generation or a culture, and Mr. Trump has begun to do that on his own here and in Europe. When it comes to put-downs, I always nod first to Scotland the Brave. The Scottish are blunt to the point of laconic, fierce and unrepentant. They can deliver invective like a highcaliber bullet delivers impact, but not without a muse to rile them in this case, Mr. Trump, who is also a target. Let me leave you with just a few models of such insults at their best, inscribed in social media by individual Scots aimed at Mr. Trump (thank you again, sir, for your service) after he completely misunderstood and mischaracterized the Scottish position on BREXIT, Great Britains withdrawal from the European Union, almost effortlessly insulting a proud and die-hard people. You Bawbag. You mangled apricot hellbeast. You spoon. You clueless numpty. You bloviating flesh bag. You weapons-grade plum. You weasel-headed f#!+nugget. You touped f#!+nugget. You witless f*#!+ing cocksplat. You tit. You absolute f*#!+ing donut. You Gobshite. You utter and complete eejit. You incomprehensible jizztrumpet. You cockwomble. And finally, You tiny-fingered, cheetofaced, ferret-wearing shitgibbon. Pure poetry. Lang may their lumbs reek, with those of all artists, whether inspired by the 10th muse or any of the other nine.

According to my handy dandy online dictionary, an acronym is a word formed from the initial letters or groups of letters of words in a set phrase or series of words and pronounced as a separate word, as in WAC from Womens Army Corps or OPEC from Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries. Or MAGA, as in Make America Great Again, the Donald Trump campaign slogan splattered across red baseball hats worn by millions of Americans, mostly white, mostly intolerant, who have bought into the Trumpsters garbage that America should return to the glory days where their rigid biases oppressed everyone else. Actually, the Trump cabal is already hard at work on his re-election effort, and that means a new slogan for 2020, something that captures the regressive spirit of his first term and, more importantly, fits on a red baseball hat. In case you were wondering, the caps are red because thats what Vladimir Putin wants. Thats totally false, of course, entirely made-up, fake news. Putin couldnt care less about such paraphernalia or such minute details. Hes more of a big-picture guy when it comes to controlling the 2020 election, just like he was in 2016. Those details will be left to the American wordsmiths, who are already toying with Keep America Great. There are a few legal problems with that one (when are there not a few legal problems?), and there is some uneasiness over whether its such a great idea to have a slogan that will shorten to KAG. Of course, it certainly would be better than Grow America Greater, or Heighten Americas Greatness. Imagine how much fun wed all have with GAG or HAG. All the Trump wrecking crew has accomplished thus far is antagonizing just about every nation that has been woven over generations into the tapestry of commerce agreements that govern the way we buy and sell each others products. Without a doubt, the United States frequently has been taken advantage of as these tangled rules and regulations have evolved, and without a doubt, Americans sometimes take a bath. But you know what they say about babies and bathwater. Thus far, when it comes to trade, our current chief executive seems Hellbent to Annihilate the Very Orderliness of Civilization (HAVOC). In the process hes Antagonizing Real Simply Everyone. Except for his base; those in this country who have been left behind by changes over the decades are particularly receptive to the oppressive nostalgia of Make America Great Again. The trick for Republicans will be to sustain their resentments so that theyll continue to turn out at the polls in numbers exceeding those on the other side who are infuriated at the entire Trump experience. Given our attention spans, it will be a battle of the slogans. Continue Americas Trends against those who are Disgusted Over Grossness. It could be a CAT and DOG battle but it could end with a whimper. It would not be the first time the Trump resisters stayed home on Election Day, intimidated to Wallow Uninspired Scared and Submissive, in other words, a WUSS. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN.Dont cry for Angela MerkelAngela Merkel is, her supporters like to gloat, the leader of the free world. Just dont ask her to spend as if she is. Donald Trump has made the German chancellor one of his favorite rhetorical targets, especially over Germanys anemic defense expenditures. This has led to worries about the future of the transAtlantic alliance, and reflexive support for Merkel among the American political elite. Trump shouldnt openly mock Merkel, or suggest that there have been annual dues to NATO that Germany has failed to pay. Trump tends to view foreign countries like contractors trying to scam him in a development deal. This scants history, geo-strategy and the national pride of other countries as usual, Trump would benefit from at least a gesture toward statesmanship. Yet Germanys defense spending, or lack thereof, is a disgrace. One would think the country would have been embarrassed onto a different trajectory after German troops Panzergrenadierbataillon 371, to be exact had to use broomsticks instead of guns in a NATO exercise in 2014. But Germany evidently doesnt embarrass easily. NATO countries, after a long vacation from history after the end of the Cold War, agreed at a summit in Wales in 2014 to spend 2 percent of their gross domestic product on defense annually within 10 years. It is the biggest economy in Europe and fourth largest in the world that is the serious laggard. Germany spends all of 1.2 percent of GDP on defense. As Elisabeth Braw points out in Foreign Policy magazine, its military is short on tents and winter clothes, most of its tanks arent battle-ready and it has a shortfall of about 20,000 officers and NCOs. It is promising to get to 1.5 percent GDP ... by 2025 (when a Trump second term would be ending). Merkel is happy to browbeat other EU countries over their fiscal and migrant commitments, but please dont bother her to spend on her own defense. The old saw is that NATO exists to keep the Soviet Union out, the Americans in, and the Germans down. But the last item, given the deep streak of pacifism in postwar German politics, is no longer apt. The EU, not military conquest, is now Germanys tool for European influence. Germany still has a gauzy view of what matters. Its foreign minister has argued that its development aid should count against its goal for military spending, fundamentally confusing soft and hard power. Needless to say, if Vladimir Putin is tempted to challenge NATO somewhere on its periphery, hes not going to be dissuaded by Germanys foreign-aid budget or its openness to Middle Eastern migrants. Its not clear how seriously Germany takes the Russian threat (although it sent some troops to Lithuania last year). Germany has been supportive of the proposed Russian pipeline, Nord Stream 2, that would make Europe more dependent on Russian natural gas and bypass Ukraine. Its Trump, the alleged tool of Putin, who has been complaining bitterly about the project. With Putin looming to the East, NATO remains a vital tool of Western power. Its not an imposition to ask that Germany act like it. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly bob FRANKENKing Features

Unlike pills, needles and creams that DO NOT treat ED, only the symptoms, Acoustic Wave Therapy is a treatment that will OPEN existing blood vessels and STIMULATE the growth of new blood vessels, making it possible to achieve a full and rigid erection. At Southwest Florida Medical Group, we treat the root cause of Erectile Dysfunction with our proprietary FDA cleared Acoustic Wave Therapy. This type of treatment may provide long-term results and allow men to stop injecting or orally consuming chemicals to receive an erection. The Therapeutic Advances in Urology Journal concluded that Acoustic Wave Therapy aimed outside the body is a revolutionary treatment of ED. The physicians and professional medical staff at Southwest Florida Medical Group will assist and manage your treatment protocol. Paid AdvertisementSAY GOODBYE TO ED As men age, the blood vessels that supply blood to the penis begin to breakdown or collapse. Natural or drug induced blood flow cannot enter into the penis, thus creating ED. Acoustic Wave Therapy opens exisiting blood vessels and stimulates growth of new blood vessels. As a result, our patients experience much stronger, firmer and more sustainable erections.How Acoustic Wave Therapy Works: Before: After: www.SWFLMedicalGroup.comCOURTESY PHOTOSSherri Muske, a staff member, stands with the wood slabs from the Mysore fig tree at Edison & Ford Winter Estates.

As a result, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has organized a series of public workshops around the state beginning in Fort Myers on Thursday, July 19, inviting opinions from all our stakeholders, said Amanda Nalley, FWC spokeswoman. Those who cant attend may submit comments to MyFWC.com/Saltwatercomments. The workshops are designed to solicit public opinion before the FWC takes action later in the year to protect the interests of both humans and sharks with new regulations. We have a lot of people who feel strongly that shark fishing from shore might be causing safety issues for swimmers and we have others who want to protect the (various species of) sharks, and yet others who love the sport because you dont need a boat. We dont want to pass regulations that would cause them not to fish, Ms. Nalley added. Using heavy tackle and wire leaders with a steel hook almost the size of a handball, fishers are wrestling hammerheads, bull sharks, lemon sharks, nurse sharks, sand sharks, blacktip sharks and others onto beaches east and west, though some species are prohibited by state law even from being landed. The main issue here is that shore-based shark fishing has really grown in popularity over the last 10 years, and social media has played a role. People want to share pictures, suggested Dr. Bob Hueter, director of the Center for Shark Research at Mote Marine Laboratory based in Sarasota. You dont need a boat, its a fairly inexpensive hobby, and its a lot of fun people turn it into an all night affair on the beach and have a good time. That part is great, he said. But there are other parts. From what Ive seen, most shark fishers are interested in healthy animals. Theyre not trying to kill sharks. Its catch and release, Dr. Hueter explained. The problem has been, their handling practices are poor. People dont know it. They release animals after mishandling them, the animals stagger off, and the people dont realize these sharks are dying. Too often where people have been shark fishing, dead sharks wash up on the beaches a day or two later, he said. Hammerheads in particular are of great concern because theyre not equipped physiologically to survive the experience of a capture. They have small gills and a small mouth so when theyre restrained, or slowed down, its hard for them to pass enough water over the gills to blow off CO2 and to get oxygen, Dr. Hueter said. Lactic acid builds up fast, and they dont make it through the process. They pass the point of no return quickly. Thats especially true of the really big great hammerheads. In addition to such concerns, some people are increasingly anxious about drawing sharks nearer to beaches frequented by swimmers. They see shark fishing as shark chumming; some point to increases in shark bites over the last few years as a consequence, although the FWC has said data does not suggest that. Melbourne Beach Mayor Jim Simmons pointed out to FWC commissioners in a public meeting in April that divers cannot feed sharks and people cannot feed alligators, by law, but sports enthusiasts can blood-bait or fish for sharks where swimmers are present, a practice that should be ended. Melbourne Beach lies in Brevard County, part of 70 miles of the Space Coast where the greatest number of shark attacks on humans in the United States have taken place, where riptides are especially dangerous, and where the rate of lightning strikes of people is the highest or one of the highest in Florida. Dr. Hueter, meanwhile, has called on FWC commissioners to do some things that are best practices. It could be through an aggressive education campaign, or it could be through regulations, such as requiring heavier tackle and circle hooks, not J hooks, to help prevent gut-hooking. That will be the choice of FWC comissioners, he concluded. But whatever they do after the public workshops are complete, I hope they move rapidly.

Best practices for shark shers>> Dont ever take a shark out of the water if its small, dont lift it into the air. Keep it in the shallows, keep its gills wet, and release it ASAP. >> Use heavy tackle, not light tackle. You wont ght as long, but the sh will survive with more energy. >> Use circle hooks, not J hooks, to minimize gut-hooking the shark. They wont swallow them, but if they do, they have a better chance of coming back out. >> Report tags. From Rhode Island to Florida, agencies such as Mote Marine are tagging sharks to study them. If you see a tag, write down its number and report it.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYvices and the Division of Unclaimed Property. There are more than 14 million claimable accounts in Florida, Mr. Moore said, going all the way back to 1961. Many people have multiple accounts. The money being held comes from old paychecks, dormant bank accounts, utility deposits, life insurance policies, mutual funds, stocks, the proceeds from safe deposit boxes and more. They range from as little as 1 cent to $2.9 million. The average amount of accounts in South Florida counties is between $273 and $300. In Southwest Floridas Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties, there is about $106 million in unclaimed property in 388,280 accounts, show state records obtained by Florida Weekly. In Palm Beach County, one of Floridas most populous, there is $197 million in unclaimed funds in 654,987 accounts. One of them belongs to Donald Trump in the amount of $354.69 for old miscellaneous checks from Federal Express associated with 1094 South Ocean Blvd. in West Palm Beach, a property that President Trump purchased in 1993. Trump International Golf Club has accounts worth $100 and $36, respectively, and The Trump Institute has accounts worth $448.07 and $184.25. President Trump and the White House press office did not respond to a request for comment. If theyre famous, if theyre not, it makes no difference to us, Mr. Moore said. Were just trying to get as much back to as many people as possible. Among Palm Beach Countys largest accounts, Richard Kunkel has an unclaimed $519,374.25 from an IRA. In Lee County, the single largest account belongs to Joseph Nicotra and Nancy Nicotra for $419,129.51 from unclaimed mutual fund shares. In Charlotte County, Donald OConnor has a $250,000 account from life insurance policy benefits. The state had more than $17,000 in an account for Charlotte County resident Robert Irwin from his Publix stock shares. Mr. Irwin died in 2014, said his son, Robert G. Irwin, 66, who lives at the same address as his father and works part time at Walmart. Mr. Irwin said he had been contacted by the state with a letter about the money in the last few years at some point but has never owned a computer or had an email address and didnt understand how to collect it. I didnt know what to do about it, he said. Im really not into computers. Florida Weekly helped him start the claim process but found out that the money was already on the way. Thank you for letting me know, Mr. Irwin said. Mr. Irwins father had left the stock shares half to his son, and half to his wife. Since his wife had just passed away this year, her half was to go instead to his wifes power of attorney. The power of attorney had already successfully claimed the money for herself and for Mr. Irwin, who had forgotten that he had signed documents confirming that. The checks were sent out on July 10 to Mr. Irwins address, the state said. In Collier County, Betty Louring has a $240,266.91 account from a pension. These account holders could not be reached by Florida Weekly for comment. Three others with large accounts in South Florida, worth upwards of $100,000, were reached by phone. Each declined to comment on the record primarily, they said, because they feel it is a private money matter. Each also said they were only now in the process of collecting their money from the state. One of the accounts appeared to be related to a life insurance policy from someone who died more than a decade ago. One account holder said her attorney was in the process of collecting the account from the state. Private investigators, CPAs and attorneys may contact account holders or heirs and offer to recover the money for a fee of 20 percent of the account or a maximum of $1,000, but thats not necessary. You can claim the money on your own free of charge at FLTreasureHunt.gov. Theres no attorney required when you go to collect funds that are out there in your name, its just a matter of proof of ID, said Alecia D. Collins, communications coordinator with the Florida Department of Financial Services. So if theres someone out there saying we can find money for you for a fee, its really free, you can do it yourself. The state records did not show accounts worth less than $25.

About 5 percent of all accounts in Florida are worth more than $500. In addition to cash, the state holds tangible property such as watches, jewelry and coins from abandoned safe deposit boxes. Floridas total unclaimed property amount has remained at more than $1 billion for years even though the state says it constantly seeks out people to return their money and returned a record amount last year. In the fiscal year ending in 2017, Florida returned $313.4 million in unclaimed cash to residents and businesses, $41.6 million more than the year before. Banks, counties, utility companies and other entities are required to report property deemed abandoned to the state after, usually, one to five years. Florida is one of the few states, I dont want to say the only state, that really engages in a proactive, aggressive outreach program when it comes to returning unclaimed property, Mr. Moore said. Florida uses a number of strategies to contact account holders including sending out hundreds of thousands of letters to addresses if it appears the account holder still lives there, through phone banks, on TV, and notifications online when people renew car tags. But even if they notify a person that he or she has funds, Mr. Moore said, that person must come forward to claim them before they can be released. Even if we think weve got the right person, at the right place, at the right address, we cant just send a check, he said. If an account has not been claimed after five years, it is deposited into the State School Trust Fund that is used as part of a general fund to provide teacher salaries, instructional material and other public-school needs. However, that doesnt mean people can no longer claim that account. It is available for someone to come forward and claim money in perpetuity, no matter how long it takes. There is no statute of limitations, Mr. Moore said. I also had an account, my final paycheck as a server at Steak & Ale in Fort Myers (now closed), for $36.22. The state notified me about it online when I renewed my car tags in April and it only took a few minutes to fill out a claim form with my identification. A few weeks later my check from more than a decade ago arrived in the mail. However, the state has up to 90 days after it receives a complete claim package to determine if you are the rightful owner. Some accounts, such as a life insurance policy, also require additional paper work to establish you are the owner records such as a death certificate. The last thing we would want to do is return someones unclaimed property to the wrong person, Mr. Moore said. FAQs>> How do I nd out if the state is holding my unclaimed property? Go to FLTreasureHunt.gov and search your name or that of your business in the database, then follow the instructions to establish your identity. >> How do I prove the account belongs to me? Each claim form will detail what documentation is required to verify your ownership of the property. Having the same name as that on an account does not establish entitlement there are many people who share the same name. >> What types of identi cation are accepted? Claimants must provide a copy of their drivers license or another form of government-issued photographic identi cation. If your identi cation does not re ect your current address, include other documentation (such as a current utility bill, etc.) re ecting your current mailing address in addition to your ID and proof of ownership. >> How long does it take to get my money? The state is allotted up to 90 days from the date it receives your complete claim package to make a decision. Claims are often processed sooner. >> What if the original owner of the property is deceased? Proof of ownership must still be established with documentation as detailed on your claim form. In addition, you must provide a certi ed death certi cate for the owner, along with identi cation and signed claim forms for all heirs of the owner (or for the personal representative if the estate remains open.) >> Does the state pay interest on claims?

Masafumi Nagasaki made his way to Sotobanari Island 29 years ago and told Reuters in 2012 that he wished to die there. Finding a place to die is an important thing to do, Nagasaki said, and Ive decided here is the place for me. Earlier reports indicated that he at one time had a wife and two children, and he ran a hostess club in Niigata, Japan. In civilization people treated me like an idiot and made me feel like one. On this island I dont feel like that, he said. Nagasaki explained that at first he wore clothes on the island, but a typhoon destroyed his belongings. Alvaro Cerezo, who documents the stories of island castaways, told News.com/au that in April, authorities removed Nagasaki from the island and placed him in government housing in Ishigaki, Japan, because he was ill and weak. They took him back to civilization and thats it, Cerezo said. They wont allow him to return.Bright ideaARE YOU BLIND IT 25 MPH is Ron Wards in-your-face (and grammatically lacking) attempt to slow down drivers along his street in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Ward has been making signs for years, neighbor Patrick Schmidt told FOX 17 in June. Ward claims, By the time (drivers) hit this here driveway, theyre doing at least 50-55 miles an hour. He just wants people to follow the Richmond Street speed limit. Slow down, the whole neighborhoods got kids, he said. The City of Grand Rapids, however, has no specific plans for speed monitoring on the street.Wrong place, wrong time Early on June 26, a man who had been sleeping on the South Miami Avenue bridge over the Miami River got a rude awakening as the drawbridge started to raise to allow a boat to pass underneath. Witness Khadijah Andrews had seen the man as she was walking to an early yoga class, she told WSVN TV, and she looked for him when the bridge began rising. Fortunately, he woke up after sliding down a ways and was able to hold on until the bridge was lowered. Andrews said the unnamed man walked away with no apparent injuries: You think youre about to watch a man lose his life. Its just terrifying. I never want to see that again. In Devon, England, on June 30, a couple who had just exchanged vows at the Furrough Cross Church gathered their wedding party at Tessier Gardens next door to take pictures. But a sunbathing woman who was squarely in the frame of the wedding photos refused to move from her towel. So the party just posed around her. The grooms son approached the woman and asked her to move, but she pretended to be asleep, he told Metro News. Later she did move but left her belongings in the same spot. It was bloody rude and disrespectful, claimed Natalie Ming, a relative of the groom.Litigious societyIn Normans Bay, East Sussex, England, Nigel and Sheila Jacklin are studiously keeping their eyes down after being threatened with prosecution if they look at their neighbors house -an adjoining property bought five years ago by Dr. Stephane Duckett and Norinne Betjemann. The Jacklins, 26-year residents of the beachfront community, had repeatedly complained to authorities about noisy builders, verbal abuse and light pollution as Duckett and Betjemann turned a former workshop into a weekend retreat. In June, The Sun reported that after police were called into the dispute, the Rother District Council sent the Jacklins a community protection warning that defines an exclusion zone around Duckett and Betjemanns home, forcing the Jacklins to take a roundabout route to the beach. Nigel Jacklin said: We cant walk to and from the beach or through the village without fear of being prosecuted. The Jacklins plan to fight the order.Weird foodMinor league baseball teams come up with some wacky promotional ideas, and Sugar Rush Night at the Erie (Pennsylvania) SeaWolves game on June 23 didnt disappoint. WNEP TV noted that one highlight was the cotton candy hot dog: a wiener nestled in a cloud of cotton candy, then sprinkled with Nerds candies. Brave SeaWolves fans could top off the meal with a cotton candy ball: ice cream covered with sprinkles and enclosed in cotton candy. Maybe the sugar rush was too much for the players; they lost 5-3 to the Altoona (Pennsylv ania) Curve.Recurring theme: airport nudityTravelers aboard a Delta Air Lines flight that had just landed at HartsfieldJackson International Airport in Atlanta on June 26 were startled when a nearly naked man ran up to their plane and jumped onto a wing, then attempted to open an emergency exit. Jhyrin Jones, 19, had scaled a fence topped with razor wire to reach the runway; just minutes before, he had jumped on some parked cars at a nearby construction site and threatened to kill yall, Im going to blow this place up, trust nobody, you better believe me, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. A police report indicated Jones appeared to be under the influence of narcotics. He was charged with criminal trespass and public indecency, among other things.

A14 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYsaid Jerry Miller, training officer for the program and a veteran himself. Ms. Anselmi beamed at the praise. Joining Young Marines was the best decision of my life, she said. Young Marines is a national youth education program for boys and girls. Similar to Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts in its emphasis on building character and leadership skills, the program differs in that it is deeply rooted in military values. When they join Young Marines we follow the Marine Corps format. We teach them honor, discipline, teamwork, leadership, Mr. Miller said. They learn respect, honor, love of country. And they get three hours of mandatory drugfree training each quarter. Kids who join are called recruits until they complete 26 hours of boot camp, where they learn close order drills, complete physical fitness tests and study the military rank structure. Once they complete boot camp, they can go on to earn rank and work toward those ribbons. Many Young Marines join with encouragement from a family member who served. Nine-year-old Sophia Ballasteros joined just this year. Both her mom and dad were in the Navy. Her step-dad was a Marine and her aunt and uncle were in the Air Force. And while shes only entering the fourth grade, Ms. Ballasteros said she plans to join herself one day, after the JROTC program in high school. Were not necessarily trying to make Marines of these kids, Mr. Miller said, but were teaching them to be cognizant citizens in the community leading drug-free lives. Even though its not the primary goal, when a kid finishes the program and later joins the Marines, he or she qualifies for a bump in rank out of the gate. When Ms. Anselmi joined the program, Mr. Miller described her as shy and lacking in self-confidence. It was during a field trip to Paris Island, S.C., that he watched her transform. The students were tasked with climbing a tower and repelling down from the top with help from a few real Marines. Ms. Anselmi tried and failed to complete the task five times. She was shaking, crying. I said Why dont we go inside? Mr. Miller recalled. And she said No, I have to do it. Eventually, she succeeded. It was the hardest thing Ive ever done, Ms. Anselmi said. After that accomplishment, Mr. Miller noticed a change in the teen. She has confidence now. Shell look you in the eye and give you a firm handshake, he said. That Saturday, after filling care packages with toiletries, magazines and candy and before a drug-free presentation by Drug Free Collier CEO Guy Blanchette and former NFL player Ikaika Alama-Francis, the Naples Young Marines gathered for its regular meeting and updating of their ribbons. About 24 students are part of the overall group, which meets the second and fourth Saturday of each month. Having recently completed their annual swim test, each of the eight kids who made it to Saturdays event earned a new ribbon to add to their rows, or in Ms. Anselmis case, blocks. Heres your roman numeral with your swim test, and heres your new mount, said Bob Kemp, another of the groups leaders. Ms. Anselmi tore into the package, which would add a new row to her block, as eager as if it were Christmas morning. KRISTINE GILL / FLORIDA WEEKLYLaurel Anselmi (left), the Senior Young Marine Gunnery Sergeant, runs the Naples Young Marines through a series of drills at a meeting in June.

The American Red Cross has steps to help stay safe when the temperatures soar.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, he or she 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 exhaustion Excessive heat can lead to sunburn, heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke. If someone is experiencing heat cramps in the legs or abdomen, get him to a cooler place, have them rest, lightly stretch the affected muscle and replenish his 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 him 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 he is 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.

And by that, I dont mean just temperature-wise. We have received even more unsolicited recognition as a great place to live, work, play, thrive and retire. The most recent article titled Americas Best Beach Towns for Retirement Ranked! starts with everyones dream of spending his/her golden years by the sea. But if youre lucky enough to make that happen, how do you choose the perfect spot along the vast coastline of the U.S.? Personal finance website SmartAsset ranked the ten most seniorfriendly cities in America (based on taxes, health care and social life) to gauge where retirees might have the highest quality of life. Ranked number one of the coastal spots on this sweet list is Naples. SmartAssets description: This gorgeous little Gulf Coast town with Mediterranean-inspired architecture is a total dream of a place, so much so that it ranks highly in multiple surveys on happiness and well-being. Its also the number one place in the country to retire, with plenty of medical care, social opportunities and retirement centers nearby. Ranked No. 4 through No. 7 are Stuart, Vero Beach, Venice and Sarasota, respectively. Florida does have an estimated 1,000 people per day moving to the state, with the Orlando region and Southwest Florida as prime locations. Orlandos worsening traffic congestion and lack of easy beach access make Southwest Florida even more attractive. Moreover, Florida is in excellent financial condition, having the highest bond rating of any state in the nation. Almost simultaneously with the above accolade, Naples received some unsolicited international attention highlighting its healthy environment. A BBC World Hacks four-minute video from early July starts with, This city wants more residents to get to 100 so it is adopting ways of life from parts of the world where people live the longest. Dan Buettner shares that the Blue Zones Program offers cities a way to change their environments and ecosystems so people mindlessly live healthier. This comment occurs while the camera pans over folks socializing at Cosmos Caf/ Pizzeria and shows Central Avenue as a complete street with walking paths for pedestrians and bike lanes segregated from autos. Naples is trying to make healthy living the unavoidable choice for everyone young and old. Some schools are opening early, encouraging children to exercise before their lessons start. Collier County schools are ranked No. 5 of 67 in the state of Florida with superintendent Dr. Kamela Patton named this years superintendent of the year for Florida. Perhaps the Blue Zones Project is contributing to our students success. Over 400 organizations including 105 worksites, 88 restaurants, 41 homeowners associations, 32 schools and 14 preschools, 25 faith-based organizations, four grocery stores and 188 other organizations have signed up for the Blue Zones Project. As of a year ago, a third of Southwest Florida was familiar with the Blue Zones Project, with between 10 and 15 percent of people thinking their lives have been changed for the better. Southwest Florida is a model for communities that want to have everyone live a longer, happier and healthier life. HEALTHY LIVINGHCN of Southwest Florida receives national awardThe Healthcare Network of Southwest Floridas Nichols Pediatric Center received the 2018 Richard Robinson award, one of three Reach Out and Read Leadership Awards presented at the 2018 Reach Out and Read National Leadership conference. Named for Scholastic Inc. chairman and CEO Richard Robinson, this award, instituted in 2002, recognizes extraordinary implementation of the Reach Out and Read program by a medical practice or clinic that inspires others with their efforts in support of our shared mission of early literacy promotion. This award exemplifies the importance of community health centers like HCN, which provide services above and beyond what you would find in a traditional pediatric practice, said HCN CEO Mike Ellis. The Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida was founded in 1977 and provides primary health and dental care to more than 60 percent of Collier Countys children. HCN also provides family care, womens care and behavioral care to more than 50,000 patients at 21 facilities around the county. Through Reach Out and Read, medical providers at HCN give children books at more than 10 well-child visits from infancy until they start school. They also provide encouragement to parents on the importance of reading aloud and engaging children in literacy efforts. In 1997, Richard Robinson initiated a partnership between Scholastic and Reach Out and Read in our shared mission of ensuring that books and reading are a part of every childs life, said Reach Out and Read CEO Brian Gallagher. I am grateful for the work the Nichols Pediatric Center does every day to share the benefits and the joy of reading aloud together with the families it serves, and proud to honor them with this award. Nichols Pediatric Center serves as a traditional pediatric practice for patients throughout Collier County, on the campus of the Greater Naples YMCA. Unique to this health center is its location, allowing primary care and behavioral health care access also for children enrolled in the YMCAs early learning programs. The sites connection to the YMCA has helped bolster initiatives like early childhood literacy and the Reach Out and Read Program. HCN also recently completed a rigorous compliance review with the Health Resources and Services Administration, reporting that it is fully in compliance with national regulations.

I stress another, because 2016 was only the latest round of ongoing water quality issues facing the region and the state of Florida. As I write this, more than 80 percent of the Caloosahatchee River is experiencing the presence of Cyanobacteria (blue green algae), which have tested positive for microcystin toxins toxins with serious human and wildlife health impacts. At the same time, satellite imagery of Lake Okeechobee highlights that more than 90 percent of the entire lake is impacted by the same algae. Recent action by the Scott Administration, advocated by the Conservancy, local governments and environmental partners to bolster monitoring of the Caloosahatchee Basin, is a much-needed positive development. Without timely and comprehensive data on pollution and water flow, there is little chance of making good decisions for our water quality. I wrote back in 2016 that we needed a three-pronged approach to address the quality, quantity and distribution of water if we hoped to truly solve our water quality crisis. These approaches are still necessary today. The first prong is to increase dynamic water storage west, east, north and south of Lake Okeechobee. The good news for our interests in Southwest Florida is that the C-43 reservoir is under construction and will add 170,000 acre-feet of storage on this coast by 2022. In addition, last year, the Florida Legislature agreed to expedite the construction of a longanticipated southern reservoir to reduce the damaging high-volume discharges to the east and west, and instead move water south to feed the Everglades ecosystem and to flow under the now partially elevated Tamiami Trail. Pending federal authorization and the federal half of the funding through appropriations, the new reservoir should be up and operating in eight to 10 years. The second prong, however, is noticeably missing improved pollution control before the water reaches Lake Okeechobee, the Caloosahatchee River and our own local watersheds. On this front, we have made little progress while Florida has continued to grow in population. The Florida Legislature should work to update the Statewide Stormwater Standards. If we do not, then new development being planned will continue to add to downstream pollution. In addition, local communities should be encouraged and supported in maintaining and passing stringent fertilizer ordinances to help reduce local sources of pollution, and not have these challenged by our own Legislature. The third prong to help address the cause of our water quality issues is to protect our remaining natural wetlands and flow ways. Every acre of wetland loss represents the loss of up to 1.5 million gallons of water storage and purification capacity. Current efforts by the Scott Administration to transfer federal oversight for Section 404 wetlands permitting to the state should be halted immediately. Southwest Florida has seen the permitted loss of thousands of acres of wetlands, and though federal oversight is still weak, it has been more stringent in reviewing applications than state agencies. As Collier and Lee counties consider newly proposed development and mines, local residents and interested organizations should seek to preserve these critical wetlands and flowways, and press for tougher state standards associated with treating pollution on-site for these developments. Water pollution has a ripple effect on human health, our economy and our quality of life. We need to press forward on all three fronts if we hope to see meaningful improvements to our waterways.

Naples Airport Pulling Road, N. Naples, FL b b tnttfALFt bn MONEY & INVESTINGWill tariffs bury U.S. soybean crop?Having lived in metropolitan areas for most of my life, I have no direct experience with farming, but I imagine it is a difficult and unpredictable life. It seems one must have an expertise in everything from crop biology to fertilizer chemistry to modern farming technology. And then the farmer must battle natural forces such as weather and disease. So it must be very demoralizing today when a man-made force outside of farmers control has pushed the prices of many crops like soybeans to a 10-year low. What is this force and how will it affect the farming economics now and in the future? When Republican candidate Trump campaigned on a platform on equalizing the playing field in the international trade arena, Im sure most in the farming community couldnt anticipate that this issue would greatly affect their livelihoods. After all, the trade debate focused on things like high tech products, steel and trade secrets. And, unsurprisingly, President Trump imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum being imported into the U.S. in one of his first actions dealing with unfair trade practices. Unfortunately for farmers, the use of tariffs did not stop there. The U.S. government imposed further tariffs on many Chinese goods entering our country and the Chinese responded in kind. One of the tariffs it imposed on U.S. goods was a 25 percent surcharge on soybeans. For many farmers, soybeans are a major cash crop. It is the second largest crop produced in the U.S., behind corn, and is used for human consumption as well as feed for livestock. It is a major export the U.S. produces about 32 percent of the worlds soybeans. China is the number one buyer of U.S. About one-third of the U.S. crop is exported to China. Even before the Chinese imposed a tariff on soybeans, farmers were already struggling in their export markets due to the strong dollar. A strong dollar makes U.S. goods more expensive for foreign customers who need to pay for U.S. goods with a weaker currency. With the additional 25 percent tax and higher transportation costs as a result of higher oil prices, U.S. soybeans are being priced out of the global market. Analysts believe that international demand for U.S. crops could drop from 20 percent to 40 percent. It should be no surprise, then, that the price for soybeans and other crops has fallen dramatically. Today the price of a bushel of soybeans is at around $8.50 per bushel. This compares to about $10 a bushel in 2016 and $14 a bushel in 2012. This downward trend must be so discouraging to farmers as the macro trends around the world favor higher soybean prices and solid farming economics. Meat consumption around the world is rising as developing nations become richer, which should increase the demand for soybeans as feed. Increasing land prices and low interest rates are also beneficial to farmers. Going forward, in the near term, crop prices will be closely tied to tariff and trade negotiations along with the strength of the dollar. However, if these are resolved, the long-term health of the farming industry does look promising, especially as new technologies make farmers more efficient. But with crop prices currently so low and land prices so high, how many farmers will sell their farms today, thus setting us up for a lack of foodstuffs in the future?

In fact, its already extinct. Anyone who goes on the BMW website wont find it listed anymore. But the 6-series convertible is absolutely worth an epilogue. First, this drop top is still available brand new at many dealerships. Its sort of like BMWs little secret. BMW discontinued the coupe version last year, and now it is quietly closing the books on the topless model. So BMW is offering some deeper discounts than normally associated with the brand. The 640i starts out at $87,695, and the more powerful 650i begins at $99,295. Even with some nice markdowns, neither will be considered cheap. But when convertibles are on sale, Floridians take notice.Also, the 6-Series ragtop has an interesting sense of style. With the folding roof in place, the flat rear window facilitates a flying buttress rear that is a beloved styling element in the car community. Thats why everyone from Chevrolet to Ferrari has also used it. The flat glass rear window is useful in more ways, too. It can be lowered independently of the roof, and with all the other windows down, theres a convertible level of breeze blowing through the cabin while still keeping the UV protection of the top. Plus, the back glass can be raised when the car is open to the world, creating a handy wind deflector. No matter if the top is up or down, the interior is very much a driver-oriented environment. The gearshift, infotainment, and ride controls dominate the center console. Its so focused on the driver that the front passenger almost feels privileged BMW allowed him/her to share the middle armrest. This is typical of the performance-minded German brand. Still, the 6-Series feels a bit practical with a larger rear seat space than any of the other convertibles in the lineup. Those who need to carry more people in premium comfort have likely looked at the Mercedes E and S-Class drop tops, which straddle the 6-series in price. Its the focus on the driver that also gives the 6-Series its magic. Our 650i test car has a 4.4-liter twin turbo V8 producing 445 horsepower. It doesnt have a raw and raucous delivery like a roadster. Instead, the engine feels like theres an endless well of power that can continually call up as much as the driver needs well into illegal speeds. This is the essence of a terrific grand touring motor. The suspension is much like a sports car with road-hugging components and tight steering. Its forgiving enough so that passengers wont complain, but its obviously built to keep the driver happier than anyone else. BMW is not done with the 6-Series. Although it has traditionally been about coupes and convertibles, the nomenclature lives on in the 6-Series Gran Coupe and Gran Turismo that are fourand five-door machines, respectively. BMW seems to see these as coupe-like vehicles that can fit into the model sequence, but they are really just borrowing the sporty legacy in a more practical package. The death of the true 6-Series doesnt mean the end of convertibles at BMW. There are currently three drop tops in smaller model designations that are continuing. Also, BMW just started production of the new 8-series this month. Its marginally smaller than the 6-Series, and so the company is signaling the upgrade in number is less about size and more about sporting ability. The 8-Series will only be a coupe when it arrives on our shores in the fall. A convertible is expected, but it has not been publically debuted. That means theres a time gap between the end of the 6-series and the new (and pricier) 8-Series drop top. Its also expected not to have the classic flying buttress design or the nifty flat glass rear window. So, its time to say goodbye to the BMW 6-series convertible. The ragtop is unique, powerful and at the moment, a little cheaper. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

Short-Term SavingsWhen we think of saving and investments, we often default to long-term thinking. But some of the money you sock away should be for the short term particularly for possible financial emergencies.If a medical crisis, costly car expense or a job loss unexpectedly occurs and youre not prepared with sufficient short-term savings, you may end up wiped out, or even in bankruptcy. For emergencies or known upcoming expenses (such as vacations and weddings), you have two main choices: 1) Save up and earn interest, or 2) Borrow the money (often via a credit card) and pay interest (at a much higher rate). Clearly, saving is better. Generally, aim to have at least three to six months worth of living expenses in an emergency fund. If its easy for you to find work, three months may be enough. If its not so easy and youre supporting four kids, two elderly parents and six arthritic dogs, you may want to aim for a years worth of expenses.Beyond your emergency fund, any funds youll need within three to five years (or longer, to be more conservative) shouldnt be in stocks. Stocks are perfect for long investment periods, but in the short run, anything can happen. Remember, for example, 2008s 37 percent drop in the S&P 500. A crash occurring just before you have to make a big college tuition payment can spell disaster. Short-term savings belong in instruments such as savings accounts, money market accounts, certificates of deposit (CDs), short-term government and corporate bonds and bond mutual funds. Interest rates are quite low these days, but theyve been inching up. CD rates vary, in large part depending on how long youre willing to tie up your money. Corporate bonds tend to pay more than CDs or Treasury bonds, depending on the risk of the bond. Some savings accounts were recently paying around 2 percent, while some three-year CDs offered 3 percent and some corporate bonds offered 4 percent or more.

Nortel Networks, the Canada-based telecom giant, had been trading for around 100 Canadian dollars per share and then started heading south. When shares were at CA$33, I thought, What a bargain! and discussed it with my financial adviser, who thought it was a great idea. I bought in, and ended up selling at CA$3 per share before the company went bankrupt. And worse, this all happened in a tax-deferred account. Waah! This was just another nail in the financial adviser coffin for me, because I have yet to employ one who ever said to me, Leon, that is a really stupid investment idea. They always said my ideas were great. I am a lot wealthier since dumping them and doing my own investing. Leon H., onlineThe Fool Responds: Such losses can be extra annoying when they occur in IRAs or 401(k)s, as you dont get to use the losses to offset taxable gains, shrinking your tax bill. (But those accounts offer tax advantages, too, such as deferring taxation until withdrawals in retirement or, with Roth accounts, avoiding taxation altogether.) A key mistake here was buying into a stock that was plunging, as that typically signals trouble. If your research had suggested that the troubles were temporary, investing could have been worth a shot. But Nortel was struggling, with its cash running out. Youre lucky to have not lost your entire investment. Game On!Video game stocks have been on fire lately, and for good reason. The phenomenon of the battle royale genre, which pits many players against one another in a winner-take-all contest, has been bringing new gamers into the fold. Whether its the beginning of a longer-term shift or a short-lived fad, many of these newly initiated video game players will likely stick around as gamers. One company positioned to greatly profit from this trend is Activision Blizzard (Nasdaq: ATVI), with eight franchises that have produced more than $1 billion each in sales. (These include Call of Duty, World of Warcraft and Candy Crush.) Its growing stable of popular games ensures that its future doesnt depend on the success or failure of any single title or franchise. Compelling updates to existing games continue to draw in new players. Call of Duty, for example, was originally released in 2003 and continues to be a hit. The latest version, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, is one of the most highly anticipated game releases of the year. Activision recently revealed that the game will incorporate a battle royale mode called Blackout.An even more compelling draw for investors is the exploding popularity of e-sports, which turns video gaming into a spectator sport. Give this stock some consideration. (The Motley Fool owns share of and has recommended Activision Blizzard.) Im a young company, born in 2007 t o dev elop g ames. With my early games hosted on Facebook, where they were quite successful (remember Mafia Wars?), I grew extremely rapidly. My market value topped $10 billion in 2012.

(Answer: Zynga) How Stock Ownership WorksQCan you explain how stock investing works? If I own 2 percent of a companys stock and the company earns $100 million, do I get 2 percent of that or $2 million? C.H., HonoluluAIf you own a companys stock, you are indeed a part owner of it, though usually with a tiny stake. You wont receive your share of its earnings directly, though. Instead, as the company grows more valuable, other investors will want to buy shares, raising the value of yours.Companies can directly send part of their earnings to shareholders, via dividends. And they can buy back shares, which boosts the value of remaining shares. They might also simply plow money into growing the business, which can encourage other investors and make the share price rise.***QWhere can my teenagers learn about money and investing?

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 19-25, 2018 BUSINESS A25 when all your conscious thought is focused on what you are doing, says Julian Birkinshaw, co-author along with James Manktelow of Mind Tools for Managers: 100 Ways to Be a Better Boss. Unfortunately, Mr. Birkinshaw adds, in the modern workplace, flow can be difficult to achieve and maintain. As a result, you are a less productive manager and stay stressed out at work. Weeding out typical office distractions and interruptions, however, can help improve your focus so that you get more done and become a more effective manager. Mind Tools for Managers identifies 100 skills a manager can master to become a better leader. They were identified in a survey of 15,242 managers and professionals worldwide. The research was conducted by Mr. Manktelow and Mr. Birkinshaw. The authors provide practical advice for each of these skills one of which is the ability to stay focused and direct the reader to the MindTools website for a deeper dive into specific skill-building articles, worksheets, videos and more. Even if youre one of the many managers struggling to maintain focus at work, you can achieve a state of flow which was first described in detail by psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi by managing or eliminating the distractions that pull you out of concentration. Here are some of the most common distractions managers and employees typically face at work, and how to deal with them. FLOW BREAKER NO. 1: The relentless presence of personal technology Smartphones and now smartwatches have blurred the line between personal and professional communication. We can receive work emails and calls on the same device as private Facebook comments, Instagram photos and an array of other personal information. The good news is that you and your colleagues can effectively manage this challenge yourselves. When focusing on a particular piece of work, choose to put away your phones for a certain amount of time. That way you can devote your attention entirely to the project at hand. FLOW BREAKER NO. 2: Email, email and more email Many emails in your inbox are probably not particularly important, and yet you may feel you must look at them when they arrive. Instead, try these tactics: Schedule checking time. Turn off the alert that appears on your computer screen when you receive an email, and check and respond to messages at set times instead. This helps you manage your coworkers, managers and customers expectations about how and when you will reply to them. Choose low-productivity times. There are likely certain times of the day when you do your best work, like first thing in the morning or maybe late at night. Schedule email check-ins for your less-productive times and save your peak hours for high-value work. Turn emails into actions. If you need more than a few minutes to read an email, add it to your to-do list. FLOW BREAKER NO. 3: Social media and web browsing Both are major productivity killers. Trouble is, organizations can no longer block peoples access to websites that arent work-related. So its up to you to use social media and the rest of the web responsibly. If it is acceptable within your organization, use a brief personal browsing session as a reward for an hour or two of high quality, focused work. FLOW BREAKER NO. 4: Nervejangling phone calls The ring of a phone often prompts an intense need to answer, even when youre in deep concentration. To minimize this source of distraction for you and your team, consider arranging a rotation so that team members can take calls for one another. Also be sure to let friends and family know that you will be available for calls only at lunchtime or in the evening. FLOW BREAKER NO. 5: Distractions in your work environment Rather than trying to ignore such distractions as strong cooking smells or loud colleagues, get away from the problem. Set yourself up in an empty meeting room to regain your focus. Or wear noise-canceling headphones or play white noise to blank out anything that would otherwise grab your attention. FLOW BREAKER NO. 6: Confusion due to overwhelming workload Always try to have a manageable to-do list, because having one thats too long can lead to procrastination, as you wonder which task to tackle next. Each day, commit to accomplishing the two most important tasks on your list, and put the rest on hold until tomorrow. In our study we found that 79.5 percent of managers view prioritizing tasks effectively as one of the most important planning and time management skills, Mr. Manktelow says. It is so important. FLOW BREAKER NO. 7: Other people Colleagues visiting your desk can be a big source of distraction, but youre also a manager who wants to be available for your team members. If you dont want to be disturbed at times when you need to focus on a task, consider either working at home or in a conference room. If you have your own office, close the door and tell your team you need to be left alone to concentrate for a while. FLOW BREAKER NO. 8: Shortfalls in your own well-being It takes a lot of mental and physical energy to juggle your priorities, manage visitors and have the discipline to control your use of technology. So its vital that you take care of yourself. Get plenty of sleep and make sure you drink enough water, as dehydration can make you feel tired and impact your thinking. Energize yourself by getting some fresh air and taking a brisk walk during the day to energize you. And avoid heavy lunches and sugar-laden snacks, as they can lead to a slump in concentration later in the day. Its easier than ever to lose track of what you should be doing at work, but you can still take steps to avoid distractions and improve flow, Mr. Birkinshaw concludes. Learning to better manage these flow breakers is a valuable skill that can be practiced and sharpened over time. And when you can achieve flow more easily, you will not only become a better manager, but youll set a great example for your team as well. James Manktelow is the founder and CEO of www.mindtools.com. Julian Birkinshaw is the deputy dean for programs at London Business School. FLOWFrom page 23 COURTESY PHOTOOther people interrupting you can be as distracting as electronic devices.

According to the 2Q 2018 Market Report released by the Naples Area Board of Realtors which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island), overall closed sales increased two percent to 2,926 properties in the 2Q of 2018 from 2,880 in the 2Q of 2017. But in the $2 million and above single-family home market, closed sales rose 25 percent in the 2Q of 2018, which along with other market indicators leads many broker analysts to believe that interest in luxury homes will remain in high demand. Available inventory at the end of the 2Q of 2018 was 5,165 properties, just 24 units behind the inventory level at the end of the 2Q of 2017 (5,189 properties). This tells me that homes are coming onto the market at the same rate we are selling them, said Mike Hughes, general manager of Downing-Frye Realty, Inc. Inventory rose 15 percent in the $2 million and above condominium market during the 2Q of 2018, which may be a factor in the uptick of pending sales in the luxury condominium market as it rose 32 percent during the 2Q of 2018. Inventory in other parts of the state and nation are stretched thin, hovering between 3 and 4 months of inventory, but Naples enjoys almost 7 months of inventory, said Budge Huskey, president of Premier Sothebys International Realty. Whats even more impressive is that we have such a great selection of homes for buyers despite the recent increase in sales and still having some undergoing repairs from Hurricane Irma.We are seeing a very different sales environment locally from that of 10 years ago when home sales in northern states stalled, said Coco Amar, a managing broker at John R. Wood Properties. But now that homes are moving fast up north, sales of high-end single-family homes in Naples are stronger than ever. Its hard to ignore the increase in interest for ultra-luxury properties, said Mr. Huskey. A $48.8 million sale for a home in Naples is impressive, but when you learn there was a second potential buyer who was considering the property you know what type of buyers are in the market. According to Adam Vellano, west coast sales manager at BEX Realty-Florida, there were four property sales over $10 million during the 2Q. Its possible the new tax laws are impacting peoples minds about residency and were benefiting from it. Brokers analyzing the market report agreed that multiple offers on luxury properties have risen. But whatever factor(s) SEE NAR, B21

B10 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JULY 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea 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.

The NABOR 2Q 2018 Market Report provides comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges, and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. The real estate markets stability during the 2Q also extended to its median closed prices, which increased only 1 percent to $345,000 in the 2Q of 2018 from $340,000 in the 2Q of 2017. However, despite increased sales in nearly every price category for properties priced above $300,000 during the 2Q of 2018, the median closed prices for properties above $300,000 decreased 5 percent. As pointed out by Mr. Vellano, sales of single-family homes near Naples Beach and in the expanding North Naples area saw the greatest increase during the 2Q, and condominium sales in Central Naples outpaced all other home type sales during the 2Q. According to the report, we averaged 30 transactions a day during the 2Q, said Mr. Vellano. Thats good news for REALTORS as we move into the summer months.

LONGEST TRACK RECORD OF FOOT & ANKLE SURGERY SUCCESS IN COLLIER COUNTYIf Millennials can do it, why cant we? Heres why.My husband and I recently bought a 2016 Airstream and named her Dorothy. Shes 22 feet long, boasts ice-cold airconditioning, a comfy queen-sized bed, a fully equipped kitchen and a (relatively) spacious bathroom. We also bought Sam and Ethel, a pair of pink plastic flamingoes who add some flair to our outdoor area when we go glamping. And after our maiden voyage weekend with Dorothy and Sam and Ethel, were trying to figure out how we can chuck it all, travel the country in our trailer and live off the grid. No, really, Im serious. If Millennials can do it, why cant we? When I began researching how to escape a life of FPL bills and HOA fees, I discovered theres an entire generation that has consciously decided to exist on wheels; 20-somethings all over are rejecting the idea of cable TV, fancy refrigerators and most notably, a mortgage or rent. Surf on over to Instagram and search the hashtag #vanlife and youll be treated to a myriad of Millennials living out of vans theyve converted into tiny, moving homes. Youll find pictures of them lounging on pillows in the backs of their vans, blogging on their MacBook Pros about how they manage to exist on $7.48 a day. They dont go to trailer parks (those cost money), opting instead to pull into parking lots (often at Walmart because theyre well-lit and open 24/7). Interestingly, most of these folks born in the 1990s and enjoying #vanlife are women (yes, the mother in me has concerns about their safety; I want to send them some Mace and a taser). And because theyve become Instagram/YouTube stars for rejecting the day-to-day grind, theyre exceptionally attractive (because you cant be an Instagram/YouTube star if youre average looking). Which, by the way, is going to be a problem for Todd and me, because one way we thought we could make money living off the grid would be to become internet Airstream celebrities. But were average looking. And while were parents of Millennials, we could never pass for Millennials. Even if Todd grew a beard and got a man bun and if I got a bunch of tattoos and wore a crown of flowers in my hair, wed still look the grandparents we are. Wed just look like ridiculous grandparents. Still, weve been bingeing on YouTube videos of van hipsters and were learning a lot. Unlike our Dorothy, van hipsters dont outfit their dwellings with bathrooms, so many of them join gyms for the shower access. And for when nature calls in their vans, some have fashioned human litter boxes (Im not making this up). All that aside, I think the biggest problem for Todd and me would be trying to subsist on less than $8 a day. Were not the Trumps (or even Republicans for that matter), but as people of a certain age, we have some basic needs. For instance, Todd needs cable TV so he can watch the golf channel. He also needs his subscription to the Dollar Shave Club and he cant do without pricey vanilla creamer for his coffee. Meanwhile, I need regular pedicures, eyebrow shaping appointments and yes, the occasional Botox. But its not just that. Millennials dont have to go to the doctor as much as we do. Todd had a partial knee replacement last week and Im due for a mammogram in a couple of months. Todds on blood pressure meds, and Im on anti-anxiety meds and I CANNOT DO WITHOUT THEM (sorry, I just got a little panicky there). How do people who live in vans in Walmart parking lots maintain health insurance? Even if we could exist in Dorothy, reduce our budget and say farewell to our luxuries, Todd and I refuse to give up good wine, good cheese or health care. Lately, whenever I see a renovated van in a Walmart parking lot, I say a little prayer that angels watch over kids in vans and that those kids have budgeted for daily multivitamins.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYwill come out tomorrow. You can count on it. Tomorrow/Tomorrow/I love ya, tomorrow/Youre only a day away, Annie sings in her pip-squeaky voice. For others, Annie might be all about Easy Street also the title of one of the shows catchy songs. Easy Street if only we could hit it big and live on Easy Street. No more working for crumbs. No more struggling. And for still others, Annie might mean escape, or finding where you belong. We spoke to four cast members, plus director/choreographer Amy Marie McCleary, to find out what Annie means to them. (Comments have been edited for clarity and space.) AMY McCLEARY, choreographer/ directorI was drawn to Annie because first and foremost it is about the creation of a family, and the way having a family changes a person, which I relate to on an intimate basis. Victor (Legarreta, who plays Daddy Warbucks) and I discussed a moment in the show where he holds Annies broken locket in his hand and realizes she doesnt need something new and shiny and expensive. She values her family and the love that they gave her. I think children show us a purity that we forget about as we age. They value the simple things, and treat everyone as their equal. Annie is equally at home with the Hooverville population (of unemployed, homeless people) as she is with the President and his cabinet. There is no judgment, no calculation. When you have children, or when you have a child in your life, its impossible not to have hope for the future, and you realize the importance of protecting and celebrating the world they live in. VICTOR LEGARRETA, plays Daddy Warbucks, the billionaire who adopts AnnieWarbucks grew up in a poor family and hes all business. His life is all business, making money. Thats all he ever cared about. Annie brings something new. Shes also all business, but shes innocence. I think the thing thats been missing in Warbucks life is innocence. He had to grow up very quickly, losing both of his parents at 10. He had to grow up faster than he should have. With Annie, he sees that childlike innocence with hope. So its hope. She represents hope. Its his hope to have that innocence and live vicariously through her. Thats something hes missed in his life. That sums it up for me. PIPER SOBON, 12, plays AnnieI think one word to describe the show would either be hope or optimism. The story takes place in the Depression, and thats what they really needed at the time hope and (the belief that) the sun will come out tomorrow. Basically, Ive been brought up in the theater; my dad is a director and my mom is an artistic producer she does casting and stuff. My dad is a director everywhere, and my mom produces and directs at the Dutch Apple Theatre (Broadway Palms sister theater in Lancaster, Pa.). Ive been in theater ever since I was a baby, and definitely Annie was one of my dream roles. Its the biggest part for a girl in any show, ever This fall Im going to be cyberschooled so I can devote more time to acting. JIM HEFFERNAN, plays President Franklin D. RooseveltI would say hopeful. Its basically a very upbeat show about triumphing over adversity. In Annie, you have this poor orphan with a positive attitude on life. She thinks everything will turn out well and of course, shes adopted by a billionaire, so it does turn out pretty well. I love that I get to play President Roosevelt. Hes probably one of the greatest presidents we ever had. He led us through the Great Depression and WWII, two of probably the hardest times our country has had to deal with. When Annie meets Roosevelt, her positive attitude kind of infects him and his cabinet, and out of that meeting, you see they start to come up with the policies of the New Deal. Now of course that really didnt happen in life, but its a great way to show how staying positive and working for the best can have a great effect on anyones situation All those programs the government came up with that time: building dams, roads, national parks and creating works of art and theater They created things that needed to be done but that also helped enrich the county. This was a time period where the county had a responsibility to take care of its people, but the people had a responsibility to take care of the country. It was: You help me, and Ill help you. We werent just giving money away; we were paying people to do things to benefit the country. I always describe myself as a Roosevelt Democrat. If we stay positive, if we make the best of everything we can, we can overcome everything. Have a hopeful attitude. You cant give up. JENNIFER HOPE, plays Miss Hannigan, the alcoholic who runs the orphanageI feel like Annie is still relevant. Thats the word I would use: relevant. It has themes that are important now about hope and caring for other people when theyre in need, about people who have and people who have not, about being generous during the holiday season. For me, it has personal meaning as the first musical I saw on Broadway. Ever. I was 5, and my dad took me. I remember feeling like the parts with the adults were very boring. I remember thinking: Where did the kids go? At intermission I asked my dad if those were real kids up there. He took me down to the stage and picked me up, and let me touch the stage. And I remember thinking: Im going to be on a stage like this, thats what Im going to do. I did White Christmas with (director) Amy (McCleary) in Lancaster (at the Dutch Apple Theatre). Theres a kid in it, the character Susan, and her arc is about her catching the theater bug, thinking its stupid at first but then thinking: I have to do it. There were three children playing that role, including Piper Sobon, whos playing Annie now. Amy talked to all the kids about having that moment, that realization that this is what I have to do: I have to act in the theater. I had the moment when I was 5. I liked theater before then, but I didnt think it was something I was going to do. Then I was like a wrecking ball, nothing could stop me. My poor parents, taking me to all the rehearsals I just knew I had to be in theater, on stage, singing and dancing and telling stories. Annie is a great show. Its a great first show to take kids to, and its relevant. MELISSA WHITWORTH, plays Grace Farrell, Daddy Warbucks personal assistantThe word for me is the obvious one: hope. What it means to me is family, too. Thats what I put in my bio: Heres to a family finding its way to each other. Families come in all different shapes and sizes. Annie and Daddy Warbucks found each other, and they dont love each other any less than any other family. Ive always loved the musical. I grew up with the made-for-TV version with Victor Garber as Warbucks and Audra McDonald as Grace. I love that version. Audra is African American and Victor is white, and I always loved that about that. I think by the end, were really a family of four, because we have a dog and everything. We made it to the American average without being average at all. Playing Grace has been a dream role for me for a long time. Everyone whos part of this team has their own Annie story, about when it mattered to them the most in life and how long theyve been waiting to play these roles. A lot of us have been waiting a long time to get to do it. We feel so lucky to be telling the story.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 19-25, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 Enjoy long walks on the beach, watching sunsets and catching sh! ON THE WATERWant to improve your shelling adventures? Buy a boatWhen it comes to having fun on a family outing, you cant beat a Hurricane deck boat. Specifically, these boats are great for island hopping and cruising the coast on a sunny day. If youre planning on doing some island exploring around Marco, Sanibel or Captiva islands, or the Thousand Islands, hop in a boat and enjoy the versatility and advantages it offers. Southwest Florida offers an abundance of relaxed entertainment options. From the areas world renowned golf courses to luxurious resorts and spas, rest and relaxation has been thoroughly integrated into local culture. While expensive amusement options are definitely the most well known in the area, plenty of affordable choices exist for people of all income levels. The easiest, and perhaps cheapest, of these is shelling. There isnt much to collecting shells. A sheller simply has to head to the beach and pick up any uninhabited shells that interest them. The most difficult part of the activity is actually getting to the beach. Of course, plenty of beaches are accessible by car or on foot, but some hidden gems are only accessible by boat. For those planning on doing some island exploring and shelling around our many islands, a versatile boat is a necessity. The professionals at Naples Boat Mart suggest a Hurricane deck boat, for its spacious layout and dynamic, shallow draft design. These boats allow drivers and passengers to stay comfortable and get right up next to the beach to scout for shells before having to get off the boat. Owning a boat provides a distinct advantage when it comes to shelling. Being able to reach remote beaches drastically reduces competition for more desirable shells. Additionally, having a boat gives one the chance to reach more popular shelling destinations before the competition, by avoiding traffic and getting to locations like Cayo Costa or Gasparilla Island ahead of everyone else. Experienced shellers suggest that low tides during the new and full moon bring the best shells. Boat owners can make the most of these times by knowing when they occur and cruising to the best spot before they fill up with other shellers. Boats also allow you to carry more gear and, thus, more shells. Boats have plenty of storage space for shelling tools, such as mesh and canvas bags, backpacks, sifters, nets and any necessary beach accessories. A deck boats clever layout offers storage options perfect for hauling shells and people, while also providing the ease and versatility necessary for one to reach as many beaches as possible in a day. From hard core shellers to individuals tagging along on a casual outing, owning a boat will almost always elevate a day of shelling. Better yet, boats are available at every price point, making it possible for nearly anyone to experience the calm, cathartic fun that shelling brings. Of course, shelling would likely be a small percentage of what an individual would likely do with a boat, since there are hundreds of other reasons to own one, but it is a simple and relaxing activity that nicely compliments high energy water activities. There are plenty of websites available with in depth information on shelling, as well as different stores and museums that can teach an amateur enthusiast more about the craft. To learn more about how a boat can positively impact shelling adventures, contact Naples Boat Mart.

But she did. You never could underestimate Aunt Cleos ability for networking and her love of good food. So the next thing she knew, my mom was inundated with the skins of hundreds of citrus fruit from across Pahokee and Canal Point. She spent her days and nights candying those orange peels into a bittersweet confection that no doubt made Cleo proud. It was easy logic for Cleo to use everything. After all, she had come of age in rural Florida and South Georgia in the 1920s, where farmers literally used everything but the squeal, rendering fat from the hogs they butchered, feathers and down from the chickens they killed and candy from the peels of the oranges they juiced. And so it goes. Citrus production is dwindling in Florida the Florida Department of Citrus reported citrus production in Florida could drop as much as 82 percent by 2026, thanks in part to citrus greening, and the simple fact that former groves are giving way to housing and other construction. When I was a boy, wed ride down from Fort Myers to Estero with my mother and grandmother as they took my great-grandmother to Marshall Groves to sample juice and buy souvenirs for her neighbors back home in Indiana. The building was like a barn, if I recall, but the orange juice was cool and sweet. As lovely as that was, it did not compare to Central Florida Clermont, Haines City (home to the Donald Duck orange juice plant) and other cities. I remember the drive through the center of the state, up U.S. 27, which cut through hills and valleys that were white with orange blossoms. The perfume was intoxicating. The last time I drove that highway, I was struck by how all the orange groves had been replaced by housing developments. So much for the sweet scents of yore. Thats nothing new. I grew up in a Fort Myers neighborhood called Rainbow Groves, which once had been home to a large stand of orange and grapefruit trees along the Caloosahatchee River. By the 1950s, when Michigan Homes began building our neighborhood of California ranch-style houses, many of the trees that had been planted in the 1920s were nearing their final harvests. It was amazing to see our neighbors orange trees yield fruit, despite having rotted trunks that had been reinforced with concrete and rebar. There were two orange trees in our backyard. My mother still remembers her first winter in our house, as the wind whipped the branches of one of our Parson Brown orange trees, rapping the Florida room window with vigor. She stepped outside, clippers in hand, until she saw there was a lone blossom at the end of the offending branch. She left it. The oranges werent pretty, but for decades, the trees continued to give us the sweet, juicy fruit for which the Parson Brown is known. The last tree finally withered away, and its trunk is encapsulated in the dendrobium orchids that had clung to its branches. I think the trunk still stands like a tombstone to the memories of sweet, sticky orange juice, and I take comfort in knowing the memories remain just as sweet. Bought: Good will, 1 3 500 Plantation Road, Fort Myers; 239-768-3701. Paid: 99 cents The Skinny: You can almost smell the orange blossoms painted on this plate, which was made around 1900. The design is signed C. Wrl, and the plate is marked M.Z. Austria, for the Moritz Zdekauer firm. It was a custom piece imported by the H. & W.B. Drew Company, a Jacksonville printing firm known for its stationery. Moritz Zdekauer changed names in 1909 and H. & W.B. Drew Company, founded in 1855, now is known as Drew & Wells. Most painted plates sell in the $20 range, if they sell at all. While its not as pricey as the Greenleaf & Crosby orange china that was created at the same time for Henry Flagler and the other high-rollers of turn-of-the-century Florida, Id still expect to see it priced in the $100 range. One thing is for sure: It whets the appetite for more. THE FIND:An early 20th-century orange blossom plateIs anything sweeter than orange blossoms and a memory or two?

ARTS COMMENTARYWho can it be? Leapin lizards! Its Little Orphan Annie! It might be a hard knock life, but the cast at the Broadway Palm Theatre makes it so entertaining. The venues summer musical is about Americas favorite orphan that blankeyed girl from the funnies in the fireengine red dress with white trim. You know, the one with the crazy orange hair with curls gone amuck who is adopted by a billionaire in the middle of the Great Depression, no less. Its a family-friendly story of endless optimism and hope, despite circumstances. And Annie is living in some pretty rough circumstances. Her parents left her at a New York City orphanage with a note, but have never come back to claim her. The woman in charge of the orphanage, Miss Hannigan (Jennifer Hope), is an alcoholic who abuses the girls physically and verbally. She wakes them up in the middle of the night to scrub the floors and then makes them work all day as child labor. The child actors (yellow team, on the night I attended) make this look fun, dancing about and banging pails on the floor in unison. (This is one of those musicals you should just take at face value, because if you delve too deeply into the plot and actually think about whats happening, its a lot darker than presented.) Somehow, Ms. Hope makes Miss Hannigan a character you enjoy watching, as she surreptitiously sips from her flask and threatens to step on their freckles. She is, perhaps, a stand-in for those audience members who find the orphans just a little too cute for words. Like Christopher Plummer as Father in The Sound of Music, Miss Hannigan rules the childrens lives by blowing a whistle. (Note to those running the soundboard: That whistle is so offensively loud and piercing, it definitely does not need to be amplified. And some of the childrens voices could stand to be lowered, at least those who are too shrill, while the quieter ones could use a little boost.) Annie (a self-possessed Piper Sobon), of course, escapes Miss Hannigans clutches and finds then loses Sandy (Peyton, a beautiful golden retriever who, without even trying, steals the show). Hauled back to the orphanage, shes rescued by Grace Farrell (Melissa Whitworth), personal assistant to Daddy Warbucks, the billionaire. Ms. Whitworth embodies her characters name; she is gracious to the nth degree, a fairy godmother who is both loving and efficient. Warbucks (Victor Legarreta) is looking for orphan to spend Christmas with him for two weeks. Hes surprised to meet Annie, because he thinks all orphans are boys. But he slowly melts to her plucky personality, as he vicariously enjoys a childhood he never had. Mr. Legarreta, with brusque charm, wins over the audience as well as Annie. Hes all business, but Annie makes him realize what hes missing in his life. Its part of the musicals appeal that we slowly see a family forming: Daddy Warbucks and Grace as a couple, and Annie as their child. Hes also somewhat of a contradiction, believing in pulling yourself up by your bootstraps, yet reaching out to Annie and allowing her to benefit from his wealth. It is thanks to director/choreographer Amy Marie McCleary and the cast that this musical doesnt get too sickeningly sweet and keeps its cartoonish humor. Even Rooster (Craig Smith) and his loose girlfriend, Lily St. Regis (Theresa Walker), who try to scam Warbucks, keep the right balance and dont turn into caricatures. Their number, Easy Street, performed with Miss Hope, is one of the highlights of the production. Its so raucously fun, we readily welcome it when its reprised in the second act, the trio shimmying and strutting across the stage. The ensemble in this large cast do triple duty as New Yorkers, homeless people in Hooverville and Warbucks servants. Frank Hughes, as Drake, the head butler, and Shannon Connolly as Mrs. Pugh, the cook (and also as a homeless person), both stand out from the crowd. While most people think of Tomorrow and Its the Hard Knock Life when they think of Annie, for me, the stand-out songs, in addition to Easy Street, are Hooverville and N.Y.C. Hooverville is a soft-shoe number with the homeless mockingly thanking former president Herbert Hoover for the mess hes made of the country. Once tenants of penthouses, theyre now living on the street, reduced to trying to sell apples. (The performers, however, look a little too pristine for people who are living in makeshift shacks.) And N.Y.C. is an exuberant love letter to the city, from its opinionated cabdrivers to the fumes of the buses on Fifth Avenue. Theres even a creative scene with everyone stuffed into a subway car, hanging onto the straps.Another clever scene takes place in a radio station, with a ventriloquist, a sound effects man and radios only masked announcer. Callie Atkinson, Sarah Cammarata and Christal Salomon harmonize nicely singing jingles as the Boylan Sisters, while host Bert Healy (Sam Arlen) tries to keep control of his show.Later in the show, Jim Heffernan gives a great impersonation as President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Inspired by Annies optimism, he creates his New Deal series of programs, a way to make jobs for the people and get the country moving again. He even gets his very stiff, very business-like cabinet to stand up and sing Tomorrow with Annie. (Be forewarned: the song is reprised a couple of times throughout the show, so you could very well leave the theater singing it too.) Little Orphan Annie, it appears, is the musical version of Norman Vincent Peale or Joel Osteen: Just think positively enough, and it will happen. This is perfect family fare for the summer; two elementary school-aged girls seated near me watched with rapt attention. And in this current world of craziness and turmoil, couldnt we all use a little hope? nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Annie: The Musical>> When: Through Aug. 11 >> Where: Broadway Palm Theatre, Fort Myers >> Cost: $20-$70 ($20 for ages 18 and younger, includes dinner) >> Info: 278-4422 or www.BroadwayPalm. com COURTESY PHOTO Broadway Palm Theatres Annie: The Musical is perfect summer fare.

Hes 20 now, and hes performed at Carnegie Hall, as well as concert halls in Boston, Tokyo, Madrid and Washington, D.C. He will be performing one night in Naples this week. With a number of awards and two CDs under his belt, hes earned the rest of musicians and orchestras around the globe. Check out our interview with Mr. Lu.Do you have a favorite composer? Its difficult to pick a top composer. Chopin has been a huge part of my life hes the composer Ive played the most of. I also adore Bach, Mozart, Schubert, Beethoven and Mozart. Do you try to channel what the composer felt, or do you approach it in your own style? I do both; of course, trying to find what the composer wants to say with the music comes first. After all, its a piece that he or she wrote, and you have to discover what he was feeling at the time of writing. The personal aspect is extremely important. Unless you digest it, internalize and feel it, its very hard to get across and make it convincing to the audience. It takes time to understand a composer; that understanding is found by studying other pieces by the composer. Different people have varying affinities for different styles or composers. As we grow as artists, we come to know ourselves as well. Bach is thought of as a technical genius, whereas Chopin and Beethoven are romantic. What comes out when you play a Bach, Beethoven or Mozart piece? Chopins two favorite composers were Bach and Mozart. Stylistically, they are very different in a musical way. Playing Bach can be very challenging. The music itself is so great, you cannot help but enter the world of each piece of music this goes for all great music. What feelings come out in you when you play, say, a piece by Chopin? The Chopin Piano Sonata No. 2, the well-known Funeral March Sonata, is one of the most powerful pieces he ever wrote. Its intense, dramatic and deeply moving to play and listen to. Its actually one of the pieces I actually felt completely overwhelmed after finishing it its so powerful it can be emotionally draining. Its a deeply troubling death march thats so hard to describe. It goes into the deepest part of this human existence, bringing up thoughts about death. Its so tragic, and when it comes to the middle section, there is something so tender and beautiful and this tenderness goes so deep. This part is extremely touching because of what came before it and what will come after it. Its kind of a fantasy, a crazy hallucination of immense regret, of not wanting to let go of life. Sadly, at the end, it goes back to the funeral march, a constant, continuous trudge. Like the Holocaust, theres a lot of imagery that can come up. The fourth movement is a complete insanity, like Chopin going crazy many people say its like a ghost in a graveyard with its imagery. In the end, one can feel just so overwhelmed.What is it like to meet the audience after a performance? Its always nice to meet with audience members after the concert and they share their experiences. It means a lot to me when they tell me they are moved by what I played. That confirmation for an artist is very important. I also try to not let either praise or criticism get to me very much; I still have to work, and concentrate on what I can do next to improve. I know very well what didnt go well during the performance. When you come to Naples, when youre not practicing, what might you want to see or do? Ive been to Florida many times, so Ill enjoy going to the beach. Eric Lu will be in concert at 7:30 p.m. on July 19 at Trinity-by-the-Cove Episcopal Church, 553 Galleon Drive. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at www.Grandpianoseries.com.

Its a clear riff on Die Hard and The Towering Inferno, but its entertaining enough to be worth a look. 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.Oceans 8 (Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway) Debbie Ocean (Bullock) and her team plan to steal a $150 million necklace during the Met Gala in New York City. A spinoff of the male-dominated Oceans 11 movies, this female-led dramedy lacks the wit, clarity and ingenuity to keep us interested. Rated PG-13. Hereditary (Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff) After her mother dies, Annie (Collette) tries to keep her family close as supernatural things start to happen. Its layered, disturbing, and theres not a jump scare in sight. If only more horror movies had the guts to be this unconventional. Rated R.The Seagull (Annette Bening, Saoirse Ronan, Elisabeth Moss) Based on Anton Chekhovs renowned play, the adaptation follows a group of mismatched lovers at a Russian summer estate in the early 1900s. Some of the humor and drama connects, but too often its too listless to ignite the screen. Youre left with the feeling that youd rather see this extraordinary cast perform the play on stage.

FILM CAPSULESJurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, James Cromwell) Claire (Howard) and Owen (Pratt) return to the setting of Jurassic World to evacuate the dinosaurs when a volcano threatens the island. 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.Solo: A Star Wars Story (Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Joonas Suotamo) Young Han Solo (Ehrenreich) meets Lando (Glover) and Chewbacca (Suotamo), and flies the Millennium Falcon for the first time, in this Star Wars story. Ehrenreich doesnt have Harrison Fords boyish charm in the title role, which is a shame. Worse, though, is the labored story and murky color scheme. Rated PG-13.

LATEST FILMSLeave No TraceIs it worth $10? YesAt the start of Leave No Trace, Will (Ben Foster) and his 13-year-old daughter Tom (Thomasin McKenzie) peacefully co-exist in their home near Portland, Ore. Shes home-schooled and academically advanced for her age, knows how to cook and provide for herself and seems genuinely happy. To many, this is what a well-adjusted, admittedly socially awkward teenager should look like. The problem, according to social services, is that Tom and her dad live in a tent in the woods, illegally occupying public land. When Will is arrested, their situation changes drastically, which prompts two thoughts: 1) Why is anyone telling anyone else how to raise their healthy and happy child? And 2) The system is rescuing a child who doesnt need rescuing. If Will and Tom choose and want to live like this, why not leave them alone? Director Debra Graniks film is neither as dramatic as this makes it sound nor as intent on social commentary as you might think. Its a bit minimalist, actually, which is OK because it hooks us from the start as its characters wordlessly, symbiotically work together. Reports indicate that in pre-production, Foster sat with Granik and together they removed 40 percent of the dialog in order that the audience would see and infer, rather than be told, what it needs to know. The result allows the father-daughter bond to appear even stronger given all thats unspoken yet shared between them, which earns our empathy. It also allows viewers to capture more of Fosters eyes, face and body language; its a credit to his performance that we understand how hes feeling, and usually what hes thinking, each step of the way. On a similar note, McKenzie is a revelation here, also expressing quite a bit with little overt emotion. If the film catches on, it will make her a star. If theres a shortcoming in the script, which Granik (Winters Bone) cowrote with Anne Rossellini and is based on the novel My Abandonment by Peter Rock, its that Wills background is underdeveloped. Aside from a quick line about his military service and his wife/Toms mother, we learn little about why he chooses to raise his daughter this way. Because the film prompts us to root for them to live undisturbed, its a question that should be answered. Thankfully, this doesnt detract from the narratives intrigue. Loving and never inappropriate, the father-daughter relationship here might remind some moviegoers of Captain Fantastic (for which Viggo Mortensen was a Best Actor nominee in 2016), although that film reveled in its eccentricity while Leave No Trace wants no part of such quirks. The closest it gets comes as Tom meets a boy her age and develops an interest in rabbits. One day she stays out too late, and her father doesnt have a phone, so she couldnt call to tell him shes OK. A lesser movie, one less confident in its convictions, would have surrounded the scenario with immense drama in order to maximize/ manipulate audience engagement. Instead, Granik keeps the story simple and understated, and in doing so ensures it remains realistic, truthful and honest from start to finish. Kudos to Granik and company for knowing what type of movie Leave No Trace is, and how to tell it best. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Eagle Fern Park and Squaw Mountain Ranch in Oregon were used for the forest scenes.

C18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYthe spaces on there are very local, he said. Thats why these games are so popular right now. Outside of Florida, Compton-Opoly, based on the famous Los Angeles neighborhood, has been one of the companys biggest sellers. It has produced -Opoly games for about 250 cities across the U.S. The company also manufactures all kinds of -Opoly games for enthusiasts of sharks, bacon, alligators and other things. And there are college versions such as Gator-Opoly. Co-owners Mr. Schulte and Robyn Wilson started making the -Opoly games in 1985 with the blessing of Parker Brothers, which owned Monopoly (it is now a Hasbro brand). Parker told Mr. Schulte his company was free to make the games as long as they didnt use specific Monopoly images or protected trademarks. My assumption would be they thought wed probably do that one game and lose all the money we put into it and move on, Mr. Schulte said. That was 35 years ago. Mr. Schulte is from a thirdgeneration family printing business that goes back to 1907 in Cincinnati, he said. It transitioned from general printing to -Opoly board games. Most of the job has been digitized now. The only thing thats old school technology is we have a lot of people standing on the assembly line putting game pieces in boxes, Mr. Schulte said. So theres a lot of manual labor still involved in it. His familys printing business was founded during the same decade that Elizabeth Magie Phillips created the first version of Monopoly called The Landlords Game. Late For the Sky wasnt the first to localize Ms. Phillips original game, either, according to Mary Pilons 2015 historical account The Monopolists: Obsession, Fury, and the Scandal Behind the Worlds Favorite Board Game. Quakers who had established a community in Atlantic City embraced the game and added their neighborhood properties to the board, she wrote. Later, Charles Darrow modified her game and Parker Brothers bought out Ms. Phillips patent. It became a perennial favorite for generations. GAMEFrom page 1EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYRather than Boardwalk or Park Place, properties such as Love Boat ice cream shop, Lakes Regional Park and Palm Beach Boulevard can be found on the Fort Myers-opoly game board.

These two activities are very popular because theyre such an easy and cheap way to get fit, to socialize, and for practical reasons, such as getting to work and taking care of errands. Whether solo or in a group, organized or not, more of us than ever are regularly taking to the pathways and roads on foot. Organized running events are fewer this time of year than during the cooler months but still taking place because demand is there. And on any given weekend morning Im among the many who pound the pavement as if the heat and humidity wasnt even a factor. But one disturbing trend Ive noticed becoming even more common is the use of earbuds, headphones and other listening devices by runners and walkers. While not illegal for pedestrians to use them (it is for cyclists and motorists per Florida Statute 316.304) its clear they create problems for a number of obvious reasons. Other than when on a treadmill we runners and walkers are mixing with traffic, no matter how much of a protected environment we may believe were using. That traffic includes other pedestrians (which include users of wheelchairs and power chairs, skaters and skateboarders), cyclists, low-powered electric vehicles and motorists. Intentionally reducing or fully eliminating our ability to hear whats going on around us while in that situation isnt too smart, to put it bluntly. Besides the safety aspect theres the social element: its pretty rude to ignore your walking or running buddies by shutting them down. This goes for organized events where many participants are sharing space, even when the course (theoretically) is free of cars. I witness the problems created by these devices at races when taking on the duty of ensuring the front runners stay on course and run interference for them by leading them out on bike. This task is becoming more difficult not by drivers who sometimes venture onto closed race courses or onlookers crossing or standing in the middle of the road but instead by the race participants themselves. In almost all cases the reason some runners create a problem is because theyre wearing earbuds and are unable to hear me telling them to move to one side so the leaders can pass, or provide other instructions. This sometimes happens when coming head-on toward them because some folks run or walk with their heads down so they neither hear nor see me trying to get their attention. Most recently I rode the lead bike for the Fort Myers Track Clubs annual Membership 5K Run. This years course was fully contained within the Lee County Sports Complex on its driveways, parking areas and paved paths. This compact course included numerous conflict points as runners and walkers encountered each other, sometimes from the opposite direction and other times in the same direction. Adding to the course challenges was a baseball tournament taking place that morning so vehicular traffic was unexpectedly thrown into the mix. As it turned out, the biggest problem was not 3,000-pound vehicles seeking to encroach onto the race course as drivers tried to determine where their field was and where to park race volunteers managed them well but rather from the runners and walkers who were unable to hear me as I attempted to get the leaders past them. So as not to run over some of the clueless runners and walkers I enlisted the help of those who could hear me to make physical contact with the unhearing to get their attention. By my estimation one-third to one-half the participants were among the clueless. Even after participants were reminded in no uncertain terms when registering and at the start line that any type of listening devices is prohibited as is the case for all running/ walking events sanctioned and insured by Road Runners Club of America (rrca.org) many decided to ignore the common sense rule. If this were a triathlon, even a short sprint distance that attracts many first-timers and casual athletes, anyone failing to heed the rule would have been disqualified. I can only hope that close calls not serious injuries or worse will convince my fellow runners and walkers to forego the earbuds and keep the vital sense of hearing in full use when out there mixing in traffic, no matter what the traffic entails.

BY ROBBIE SPENCERrspencer@ oridaweekly.comThere is perhaps no other car collection more indicative of Floridas infatuation with flashy, shiny, loud, fast or classic automobiles than the Collier Collection at Revs Institute in Naples. This is where the Collier family houses its classic car collection in excess of 100 vehicles, featuring cars more than a century old and some of the fastest, most expensive cars in the market. Revs Institute acts as a museum where locals can visit (by appointment only, three days a week) and enjoy these priceless treasures. Some of the staff said they keep the cars active by taking them to vintage car races as far away as California and showing off what the museum has to offer. Listening to Collier family patriarch Miles Collier talk about cars is analogous to a connoisseur discussing their favorite wine vintages. Were devoted to the idea that the automobile is one of the defining legacy artifacts of modern culture throughout the world, Mr. Collier said. As such, Revs is focused on the automobile, past, present and future, from the dawn of motoring, when the first carriages were truly horseless, to the cutting edge of today, with its focus on new power sources, from battery supplied electricity to hydrogen fuel cells. Mr. Collier invited around 50 local movers and shakers to an exhibit opening earlier this year that featured the Revs Institutes two ne west editions: the 1957 Corvette SS and the 1963 Corvette GS, two of the rarest automobiles on Earth. The is one of five purposebuilt racing Corvettes ever made that ushered in an era of lighter, racier versions of previous models. The SS is literally one of a kind; a show car featuring one of the fastest, most powerful sports racers of its era. It was conceived in 1956 to take on Ferrari, Jaguar and Maserati, according to the exhibit. The Corvette was the brainchild of Belgian-born engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov; a short video was shown at the exhibit explaining his significance to the Corvettes rise to being Americas star-spangled sports car, according to Mr. Collier. The exhibit opening featured cocktails, hors doeuvres and a short video describing the significance of the new exhibit. The new additions to the Revs Institute are nestled on the second floor above the entrance, where a number of bright red historic sports cars reside. Mr. Colliers remarks further recapped the history of the automobiles illustrious, meteoric rise as one of the most important disruptive technologies in the world. And, he believes, its potential to teach Americans about other technology on the rise. From cars of unimaginable performance only ten years ago, to self driving, autonomous vehicles. We at Revs believe that the past is valuable when it is used to teach us about tomorrow It gives us a glimpse of the future of genetic engineering, of the cyber world, virtual reality, AI, of a host of current imaginable and yet to be discovered unimaginable technologies. Over his career at Chevrolet he made himself Corvettes chief engineer, chief cheerleader and advocate, he said of Mr. Duntov. It was this inspiration that Mr. Collier said the Revs Institute decided to name this special exhibit Duntovs Stealth Fighters. Theyll be at the institute through November. The Revs Institute also boasts what is known as one of the largest automotive libraries in the world, featuring 100 archival collections, more than 24,000 books, 200,000 magazine and journal issues and 700,000 online images, according to the institutes we bsite.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Martin Fierro Argentine Steakhouse, Marquesa Plaza, 13040 Livingston Road; 300-4777. If you are feeling carnivorous but dont want to go to a fancy steakhouse, consider trying Martin Fierros, where the atmosphere is more laid-back and so are the prices. There are moderately priced wines, comforting empanadas (we liked the ham and mozzarella but theres also beef, chicken and just-plan mozz), and Argentine Provoleta, a large skillet of melted cheese with tomatoes, basils, garlic and wine just right for dipping a piece of bread. (Plan to share.) You can have pasta or even seafood but steaks are the stars, specifically parrilladas, or grilled meat medleys. We tore through one containing beef short rib, churrasco steak, pork tenderloin, chicken breast, chorizo and two sides. Id suggest sharing this bounty, too. All the meat was tender and well flavored, the mixed veggies lightly dressed in balsamic vinegar and the yucca crisp like French fries. A platter of lamb chops was excellent, too. For dessert, try the dulce de leches crepes, two tender crepes rolled around sweet caramel finished with whipped topping. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2017Bleu Provence, 1234 Eighth St. S., Naples; 261-8239. This bastion of fine French food and wine has only gotten better since opening in 1999. Chef Lysielle Cariot and her husband/business partner, Jacques, see to that. Count on flawless French cuisine and impeccable service, a Wine Spectator Grand Awardwinning wine list (one of 88 in the world) and a sommelier and servers who enthusiastically guide you through it. House-made smoked salmon with strawberries, grapefruit and arugula sprouts was an unusual and delicious starter. A baked goat cheese crotin salad, with julienned snow peas, radishes and walnuts in honey mustard mayonnaise dressing topped with a warm round of breaded goat cheese was equally creative. Pompano in lemon beurre blanc and rack of lamb with eggplant puree and potatoes au gratin were nightly specials that were worthy of the designation. And a plum tart with mandarin orange sorbet and the chocolate profiteroles were worth every calorie. Full bar; extensive wine list.

THE DISHThe Dish: California burger The Price: $10.99 The Place: Brooks Gourmet Burgers, 845 Vanderbilt Beach Road, 631-8298 (and two other locations in Naples) The Hours: Monday to Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday noon to 8 p.m. The Details: When I heard TripAdvisor had named Brooks Burgers a Hall of Famer and one of its top 10 burger joints in America, I had to go try it who am I kidding? Ive been here more times than I care to admit. While its infamous Donut burger gets a lot of the fanfare, I opted to at least attempt for a healthy-focused lunch by ordering the California. Tomato, avocado with melted cheddar draped over top and a piece of crisp lettuce, it made for a scrumptious, juicy bite thats already making me plot my return trip. One More Thing: The sweet potato waffle fries were a nice replacement to their typical accompaniment of French fries. They were crisped to perfection and just the right amount of sweetness. They were worth the $2 upcharge. They also have such additions as tater tots, onion rings and even macaroni and cheese (or a small side saladoops. I just noticed that healthy option).

CUISINE REVIEWFor the finest of culinary explorations, journey with Sails Restaurant The Ritz Effect that magical melange of top-flight service, food, wine and ambience that The Ritz-Carlton delivered to Naples 30 years ago, is thriving at Sails Restaurant. The upscale establishment in the heart of Old Naples opened just before Valentines Day and has been pampering customers since with its stellar culinary team, a wine list that spans 44 pages, and exemplary Russian-style service delivered by a front-of-the-house staff that misses nothing, right down to the special leather seats for ladies purses. I dont recall receiving one of these purse perches even at The Ritz. But my purse sat comfortably on its little stool which matched my plush leather chair throughout our meal, keeping it clean and easily accessible. That attention to detail is indicative of what founder, general manager and Ritz alum Veljko Pavicevic is aiming for. His fianc and business partner, Corinne Ryan, is an accomplished food broker and serves as director of operations. We visited in March and enjoyed a flawless meal. On our second visit last month, we again were seated near the open kitchen, which is a prime position for those who enjoy the culinary ballet that takes place there and to watch Jacob Jasinski, the creative executive chef who came to Sails from the acclaimed Ocean House in Westerly, R.I., as he carefully inspected each dish before releasing it. Sommelier Michael Bevacqua well known in the region years back when Chef Martin Murphy ran the Robb & Stucky KitchenAid Culinary Center in Bonita Springs has come back from North Carolina to work here. Wait staff captain Jeff Marlow and British server Lauren Harrison rounded out the team that attended to our every need. The building is as well curated as the staff. The marble bar is sail shaped. The chairs are richly upholstered in soft Italian leather (which matches the aforementioned purse chairs). The floors are French oak, the cutlery is Laguoile, the crystal European and the linens French cotton. It appears no expense was spared to turn the former bank into a dining space of splendor and comfort. The 44-page wine list is a wonder of international delights, which the sommelier will happily guide you through. Or let Mr. Bevacqua do the pairing, which he did with ease when we all wanted something different. The fish selection alone is worth a visit. It is displayed on a broad expanse of ice and virtually all of it is fresh. That means live scallops, giant tiger prawns, turbot, daurade, Dover sole and trevfally. Even exotic species such as alfansini, a bright red deepwater species from New Zealand, are available. You can select whichever fish youd like, its then weighed, priced by the pound, then cooked on a wood-burning grill or prepared la plancha (thats seared on a metal plate). Its enough to make you forget theres also a well-executed menu from which to choose. A meal here ought to begin with a cocktail. Try the multi-layered Poseidon Adventure ($14), a complex blend of Papas Pilar 24 Rum, Banane de Bresil, Zucca Rabarbaro and Xoxolatl Mole Bitters. The Gin Cin! ($14) St. George Terrior Gin, Wild Elderflower, Passion Fruit Cordial, lime, Peychauds Bitters and Santa Elvira Brut was also delicious. During the summer, theres a threecourse prix fixe menu for $39, available 4:30-6:30 p.m. daily. Choose from five 1st courses, five 2nd courses and four desserts, including the Valrhona chocolate souffle, which we will discuss later. It is a great deal and a wonderful way to dip your toe into the waters here. Another option: plunge into the raw bar or a first course such as an expertly rendered hamachi crudo with melon gazpacho, baby cucumber and exotic citrus ($17) or rich crab ($20), chopped into two easy-to-eat mounds topped with mango, avocado and spiced tomato syrup. My favorite starter was a gigantic live scallop ($25) selected from the display that was cooked fresh. It was juicy and redolent of the waters from which it had been plucked. Pasta served here is, of course, housemade. We sampled the pappardelle with charred octopus, fava beans, basil harissa and kaffir lime ($24). This was an inspired combination of textures and flavors. For entrees, we selected a whole daurade ($42 per pound), seafood risotto ($46) and a hearty veal rib chop ($59). While prices are on the high side, even for Naples, the quality of the ingredients, the beauty of the presentation and the portions are exemplary. And there are vegetables with every entre, although we added the wild mushrooms ($14) with spring ramps, peas and mushroom butter, and the slowly roasted spring carrots ($12) with spiced yogurt, brown butter and hazelnuts. Add in the potato puree with French echire butter, and I could have happily made a meal of the veggies. Do not skip dessert here. For something light, consider the crme fraiche semifreddo with Sicilian pistachio cake, rhubarb and hibiscus ginger gel ($15). It resembles a frozen mousse and pairs well with the cake and sauce. But the star was the aforementioned souffl ($18), which comes with Grand Marnier anglaise and vanilla ice cream prepped tableside. Light and airy but oh-so-chocolatey, it was hard to share this with companions. The wines we tried are too numerous to detail here. Suffice it to say that all of them, from the Les Glories Sancerre to the Adelsheim Auxerrois to the Spanish Mestizaje to the Ca dei Mandorli were delicious and perfect for the dishes with which they were served. As happened after our first visit, we reluctantly left, after a very leisurely meal, feeling well fed and a bit like royalty, an aftertaste of such exemplary treatment. All is ship-shape at Sails and I can enthusiastically recommend you cruise on in for a luxury voyage of an evening. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com Risotto contains a mix of seafood, citrus and mascarpone cheese.

22 SEPTEMBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Tiffany McQuaid What accomplishment are you most proud of in 2017? I am most proud of our ability (as a boutique real estate firm) to overcome adversity and figure out a way to maintain strength in our marketplace. We were blessed to be nominated by Inman News (our Global Real Estate News Source) as Most Innovative Brokerage in the Country! In addition, we have pioneered the entire state of Florida in launching the first voice activated search for real estate through the Amazon Alexa, Microsoft Cortana and Google Home. These devices are quickly becoming a staple in our lives and it makes sense that people will soon be asking for assistance in a real estate search from them as well... Simply ask Alexa to open real estate (you may have to enable the Voicester skill on your app) and search all of Lee and Collier County with ease. Try it out, its super cool! We, as a company, hope to lead and better the industry by example as time goes on...How are you responding to changes in the local economy?We, as a company, tend to lead with the question of adding value. With that in mind, we have created a program called Snowbird Certified that provides additional education to our Realtors over and above the traditional schooling and continuing education. This designation we have created allows the client stress free and seamless relocation from the north to the south in providing everything they need to know about moving to Florida. It is about going further than just the real estate transaction, but assisting in supporting the clients needs during (what can be) a time of uncertainty coupled with loads of questions. The clients can be assured that whatever their needs, our team will assist them from start to finish.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business?This is an easy one, without a doubt: gratitude, creativity and authenticity. I walk through my door every morning with an overwhelming sense of gratitude for being blessed with the best team in town. The creativity that permeates from my brain is truly a gift that everyone has embraced in my office, our true differentiator. Finally, authenticity, that is the acceptance of each one of us as we truly are and celebrating individual uniqueness. I have always been a believer in being true to you. Everyone else is already taken.Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?As a company we believe in community outreach through sweat equity, and our in house marketing team collaborates to create, execute and/or implement some of the areas largest events. (i.e., Taste of Collier, Rockin on the Bay, Rockin the Point, Stonecrab Festival, etc.) This allows us an opportunity to bring the community together and give back using our skills and talents. Our Realtors are very involved in the execution and participation and have formed great relationships as a result. As far as a marketing strategy goes, we like to take normal everyday things and put a creative spin on our promotional ad/pieces to make it relatable and memorable.What is your superpower? Superpower? Imagination, period. My creative brain tends to see things in 3D-technicolor and that allows me to create concepts and ideas and see the end result. It then becomes a matter of semantics to implement. With that said, my strengths lies in internal drive, self motivation and tenacity. As we all have faced many obstacles, fears and failures in life, truly the greatest strength I have learned is bouncing back quickly and never, ever giving up as there is always opportunity on the other side of any obstacle! How is social media impacting your industry or business this year? Whats in store for 2018? Facebook? Twitter? Etc.I was lucky enough to be involved in a meeting at Facebook Headquarters with the CEOs/owners of some of the largest real estate firms in the world along with the heads of Facebook and Zillow, so this question is topic forefront in my brain. As our industry continues to find ways for exposure of listings in the internet world, social media allows a platform not only for exposure of inventory, but also a huge tool for relationship building. Although most people dont like seeing a personal feed on Facebook loaded with business promotion and pushing properties, a Realtor who is aware will find and utilize tools currently available (or soon to be available) to make the connection with the consumer or their sphere of influence. The reality in real estate, or any form of sales, is people like to do business with those who they like and trust. Social media is a great catalyst to start the conversation and catapult the relationship if used appropriately.What will you base your success on for 2018?As a company, we will continue to keep a finger on the pulse of the future of our industry, but will focus daily on the present. We will continue to think outside of the box and find our own stamp on bettering the industry not only locally, but nationwide. We will broaden our vision for success, try our hardest to stay ten steps ahead, rest easier in knowing there is hope for tomorrow and sprinkle everything we do with a touch of innovation to ensure what we do shines and, most importantly, stands out!

The results of these treatments can rival that of some cosmetic surgeries, with much less down time and no need for general anesthesia. Procedures like CoolSculpting, which visibly reduces fat bulges without surgery, and Ulthera, which uses deeply focused ultrasound for noninvasive brow, face and neck lifting, are gaining in popularity. How are you responding to changes in the local economy? With the rebound of economy in Southwest Florida, we have continued to grow to meet the cosmetic medicine and surgery demands of our patients. We have increased our offerings with new lasers, noninvasive procedures and more providers to address these needs. We have added a full medical spa where patients can now receive eyelash extensions, massage and vaginal rejuvenation procedures.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business?Honesty and integrity Telling patients what they honestly need or dont need is a basic tenet of my practice. I am not willing to do a procedure if it is not right or needed for that patient. I would rather turn them away than do something that is either too risky or not indicated. Patients appreciate that honesty and usually return in the future for something else they may really need. Availability I am always available to my patients at all times. I give them my cell number to call or text me if they have a problem or question in the evenings or on the weekends. Amazingly, I get very few calls. My patients only call when they have a real question or problem. I would much rather them call or text me the question than sit at home all weekend wondering what to do.Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?We try to portray a very unified, clean and concise marketing image. My local marketing manager works closely with my employees and my website designers to ensure we portray a cohesive image.What will you base your success on for 2018?Continue growth of all aspects of the practice to fully utilize our new 7,600-square-foot facility. We want the surgery center and the medical spa to be booked completely to serve as many patients as we can in 2018.How is social media impacting your industry or business this year? Whats in store for 2018?Social media has been growing each year in our practice. We started using Facebook as a way of communicating with and educating prospective patients. More recently, we have seen an increase in the use of Instagram. It allows us to post photos and videos in a more user-friendly way. We have stayed away from Snapchat due to the unsavory self-promotion we have seen from some plastic surgeons. Honesty, integrity and availability are key to successKent V. Hasen, M.D. Kent V.
