Primary voting registration deadline approaches; security top priority BY KRISTINE GILLFlorida Weekly CorrespondentNew security measures are in place as the Collier County Supervisor of Elections prepares for the primary election in August. What happened in 2016 was an attempt and nothing was compromised, said Trish Robertson, communications coordinator for the supervisors office. Still, Ms. Robertson said federal funding has covered integration of the Albert network, a federal project protecting government agencies from cyber attacks. And the Supervisors office plans to work with an outside vendor for the upcoming general election in November. Staff is undergoing training for the systems in the meantime. The primary election in Collier County will be held on Aug. 28 with early voting spanning eight days from Aug. 18 to Aug. 25. The deadline for primary voting registration is July 30. Ms. Robertson is expecting a turnout of about 25 percent of eligible voters for the primary election.

Okay, thats enough supposition. Now lets get to the facts. If you plan to accept your social security check from the government or rely on Medicare when you hit 65; if you expect reckless drivers to get pulled over on the road and accident victims to get plucked from near death on the highway then stabilized by EMTs and saved 30 minutes later in a trauma center 50 miles away; if you expect your kid to attend public school 12 years running with little more skin in the game than a vaccination; if you expect the library to be open, the pot-holes to be filled, the state and national parks to be accessible, the bridges to hold up and the U.S. Army, Navy, Coast Guard and Air Force to cover your posterior while you act superior in an air-conditioned interior why son, youre a socialist. You, too, sister. No doubt about it, we live in a socialist society, a democratic republic called the United States where 320 million other socialists have agreed: This is how we do it. We contribute a little and get a lot back. Its a massive agreement, one hardly ever laid out in simple terms like this, and it shows just how profoundly we support each other. All of us contribute something (even poor people pay taxes, starting with sales tax), and all of us get a return on our investment that surrounds us 24/7, all our lives. Thats socialist living. Only a few citizens question its basic premise. Most do not, on the left or the right, especially when they become seniors. Do we get back what we put in? Some do, perhaps. Most probably dont they may get more than they put in, especially if they live a long life as so many more Americans are doing today. Endless haggling takes place to determine who isnt paying their fair share, of course, or who is paying too much. Since were human, we have to put up with our best selves and our worst selves with users and takers and greedy folk, and with hard-working honorable souls who insist on doing their fair share. Both. Before the 20th century, nothing like this had ever existed or been attempted on a large scale over time, especially a scale that incorporates so many people from so many different cultures, religions and all the races e pluribus unum. Its new. We have a lot of finetuning and adjusting to do. But it works. I began to think about this the other day when I was standing in line to pay a restaurant bill. An older man adorned in a big square jaw, a MAGA hat and a pleasant smile asked the cashier if the establishment offered any price breaks to those 65 or older about 4 million of us live in Florida and more than 46 million in the nation, a figure that may reach 98 million by 2060. Do you have a senior discount here? he said boldly. Maybe he thought age made him more deserving than, say, the young mother with two little kids standing behind him; or perhaps he just figured its a stupid system anyway, they give a lot of stuff away, why shouldnt I take advantage when everybody else is? A senior discount, though, is entirely different than social security or Medicare, for example. Those are not giveaways, any more than public education, police and fire protection, or public libraries and parks are giveaways. People put money into those programs all their lives, and they get back some of it, or all of it, or more than they put in, in the end. Contributions, through taxes, are not strictly voluntary. Thats our American agreement. But what compels a senior citizen, especially one well off, to expect a senior discount from a private business? There are many senior discounts here and there. Ive never figured out if businesses offer them to bring in senior money, or if they do it to be respectful, or both a way of saying thank you for maintaining our socialist society all those decades before you retired, you old fool. Spend your social security check here! I just dont know. But I do know that I dislike being asked, myself. Why should I get a break that other people dont because I have lines in my face? Hi, how are you? (A brief pause for an eyeball inspection.) Would you like the senior discount, today, sir? Its 5 percent off! Roger 1: No, I would not like the senior discount. Ill bet I can run your little rear into the ground, or outwork you, or outlast you, or outthink you, or all of the above. Senior, hell. I may have to get old, but I dont have to get mature, as a pal says. See? Roger 2: Sure, thank you. And do you have any old stale bread youre not going to use, or maybe the rest of that steak the dude at table 4 isnt going to finish? You could just give me a doggie bag. Throw in the leftover fries, too, and some of that wasted salad on table 6. Roger 3: Thats it? Only 5 percent? I am a senior! I am very old! I have lived a long time and suffered a great deal and helped make America great again! Ive gone to work every day of my life, except when I didnt, to raise a family and did I mention making America great? I want 15 percent, at least! And just suppose they gave it to you. What a great country!

Whats happened since then? Is the planet doomed? Are we on our way to environmental hell? Probably not. In fact, even without the accords, the U.S. is doing more than its share to reduce carbon emissions. Our greenhouse gases, including CO2, are continuing to fall, largely due to replacing coal with shale gas. Solar and wind, heavily subsidized, are growing at an unprecedented rate. Four states are raising requirements for renewables. In Florida, utilities continue to shutter coal plants, replacing them with solar and natural gas. California is mandating solar panels on all new homes. Battery improvements are spurring electric car sales, driving auto emissions to new lows. Meanwhile, other countries are polluting like crazy. Stung by soaring energy costs, China and greener-than-thou Germany are re-upping on coal. Both subsidize renewable energy and offset ridiculous electricity costs with cheap coal. A study by RWI Leibniz Institute for Economic Research found 61 percent of Germans object to paying even modestly higher energy bills to fund renewables. China, the worlds biggest polluter, is living up to its Paris promises by building coal plants at a frantic pace. And, as reported by the Wall Street Journal and to no ones surprise, other countries are finding big investments in wind and solar must be paired with equally big investments in gas plants for when the wind isnt blowing or the sun isnt shining. And nature isnt cooperating. Massive wildfires in California and elsewhere have pumped vast amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere, undoing years of green measures. Volcanic eruptions are doing the same in Bali and Sicily. Kilauea in Hawaii has poured out greenhouse gases for months and shows no signs of stopping. Buying electric cars doesnt stop Mother Nature. Were learning the Paris accords have no meaning anyway. Even with the U.S. curtailing emissions, the world is about to blow past the Paris goal of holding the temperature rise from preindustrial levels to 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2100. British scientists recently forecast warming of 1.0 to 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2022, four years from now. That follows a report in Nature Geoscience predicting temperature increases at twice the rate previously thought. An earlier study published in Nature Science Change reported a 90 percent likelihood the earth will be warmed by 2 to 4.9 degrees Celsius by the end of the century in spite of a 90 percent reduction of carbon emissions. David Victor of UC San Diego said, Theres no scenario under which temperature rise could be contained below 2 degrees. But none of this may matter, because all forecasts are now suspect. The U.N. International Panel on Climate Change admitted it couldnt narrow projections further than 1.5 to 4.5 degrees Celsius. The U.K. Center for Ecology & Hydrology squeezed the range to 2.2 3.4 degrees. The journal Nature says the issue is stubbornly uncertain. The fact is nobody knows. What we do know is there has been little temperature change since 2000. We know loss from the Greenland ice cap has been minimal and, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations, damage from major storms has remained constant. The Journal of Hydrology reported a study showing major floods have not increased in the past 80 years. Peter Wood, head of the National Association of Scholars, is quoted as saying, The whole discipline of climate change is a farrago of unreliable statistics, arbitrary research techniques and politicized groupthink. Faced with this uncertainty, the planet keeps perking along. Trump is in synch with the great majority of Americans who worry about jobs, the economy and overseas threats, but waste little angst on climate change.

Follow his blog at www.theresidentscorner.com.Everyone pays more BY RICHARD HOFFMANThe North Collier Fire District wants to implement a new Fee for Fire Services that distributes cost based on historical demand. With the new fee, each residential unit will pay an extra $254. This is in addition to the ad valorem tax we already pay; and there are new first-time charges for commercial property, industrial/warehouse property, institutional property and vacant land. Everyone pays more. The Fee for Fire Services Referendum will be on the August 28 ballot as: AUTHORIZATION TO IMPOSE ANNUAL NON-AD VALOREM ASSESSMENTS TO FUND FIRE PROTECTION AND RESCUE SERVICES A little history is important to make sure we dont repeat the mistakes of the past. In 2014, voters were asked to approve the merger of the North Naples and Big Corkscrew Island fire districts. At that time the Fire Commissioners promised us that the merger would yield $2.3 million in hard cost savings during the first five years and the millage rate for fires services would decline. However, by 2017, both promises were broken. The merged fire departments heaped lavish pay hikes on their employees, purchased new fire engines and added new personnel. Incredibly, our elected commissioners managed to turn projected savings of $2.3 million into an annual deficit of $2.7 million; and increased our millage by 5 percent to help balance their budget. Now the NCFD still wants more money and is trying to persuade us to approve a new Fee for Fire Service Referendum. The new Fee for Fire Service, combined with the ad valorem taxes we already pay, will increase our taxes by about $3.5 million more each year, going forward. The charge for Fee for Fire Services is also adjusted and recalculated annually. Not mentioned and not included in the $3.5 million is that based on the Property Appraisers preliminary values, the ad valorem revenue will increase by another $2 million if the millage rate remains static for the following budgetary year of 2019-2020. According to the State, the ad valorem tax rate can be no higher than 1 mil, or $1 for every $1,000 of taxable value in the North Naples Fire District (NNFD), and no higher than 3.75 mils, or $3.75 for every $1,000 of taxable value in the Big Corkscrew Fire District (BCFD). In 2017, NCFD raised the ad valorem tax rate 5 percent for fire services to .95 mils in NNFD and to 3.65 mils in BCFD. NNFD and BCFD have reached their legal taxing limit and the recently merged NCFD needs to find additional sources of revenue. The real reason for the Referendum is to increase the amount of tax revenue we pay to the NCFD. With the current ad valorem tax system in place, citizens get an exemption based on need or special circumstances. Exemptions or reduction from the Fire Service Fees does NOT apply to property owners with disabilities, senior citizens, or those of us who get a homestead exemption. Also, Fire Service Fee (non-ad valorem tax) is not deductible on your income tax return, whereas ad valorem taxes are deductible. Remember, after the merger of North Naples and Big Corkscrew Fire Districts, the fire commissioners broke almost all of the promises they made to us. Dont let the NCFD and their fire commissioners fool us again. They are counting on the fact that citizens wont spend the time to carefully evaluate their proposal: We will believe whatever the Fire Chief tells us or we will do whatever we are told by the firefighters at the polling locations. Its your tax dollars and your decision whether to vote for or against the ballot referendum. Richard Hoffman was a commissioner with the North Collier Fire District from November 2014 to December 2016.

The #1 cause of Erectile Dysfunction is poor blood flow due to blocked or hardened blood vessels. 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.comers who turned out for the last local primary in 2014. There were about 208,000 registered voters in the county as of July 21. During early voting for the national general election in 2016, a greater turnout was anticipated and so early voting took place for more than eight days. We saw quite a jump in early voting in 2016, said Ms. Robertson. That was also when the Supervisors office added a new voting location with the opening of its new building on Enterprise Avenue in East Naples. That new location will remain open during early voting next month. A similar uptick is expected compared to the 2014 general election, which brought in 61 percent of voters. The office is expecting around 65 percent of voters this November. A trend has emerged in recent years of more voters taking advantage of early voting and voting by mail. Ms. Robertson said it will be interesting to see which method wins out, as most seasonal residents will be out of town during the primary this year. Of course we want more people to vote and were doing everything we can to achieve that, Ms. Robertson said. The general election in November will have a long ballot with 14 amendments and referendums. In Florida, primaries are closed meaning you can only vote for contenders in your own registered political party for the primary election. As such, there are two universal primary elections this year, meaning that voters of either political party will get to choose between members of the same political party who are running in those races and the winner will be chosen before the general election. The two universal primaries are for the Board of County Commissioners District 2 seat and the countywide Clerk of Courts position. Winners of those primary elections will not have to face voters in November. County judge and Collier County Public Schools board positions are also on the ballot. For a full list of each race and their candidates, visit www.colliervotes.com. Be sure to bring an acceptable form of photo ID with you to your voting location along with a signature.

The nomadic year of being crowned Miss International 2017 BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.comFor Kelsey Craft, a 26-year-old who lives in Estero and is a physician assistant at Gulfstream Urology in Fort Myers and Bonita Springs, it has been the year of being crowned Miss International. Since then her life was flipped upside down. It was the year of visiting all 50 states and six foreign countries as a Miss International spokesperson for her chosen platform: to decrease preventable diseases, including obesity and heart disease, through healthy choices. It was a year of ups and downs in planes and sometimes on the ground: the year her grandfather died, of getting stuck in London because of Hurricane Irma, of keeping her belongings in a storage locker in Bonita Springs and living out of a suitcase, and the year of graduating with a masters of medical science degree from Nova Southeastern University. The Miss International organization sets itself apart from other beauty pageants in that besides beauty, community service is emphasized, specifically the winners reigning year of promoting whatever message she chooses. It isnt all about the glitz and glamour, she said, Its about, what do you want to do with this year? Contestants are scored most heavily on personal interviews with judges and on fitness, evening gown, and fun fashion wear events (theres no swimsuit competition). Miss International started 30 years ago, according to the organizations website, and the rules include that a contestant must be age 19 to 30, single, without children and of good health and moral character. Ms. Craft also had to win the Miss Florida International statewide competition before moving on to compete for the highest crown. The prize package is worth upward of $10,000, she said, including a travel allowance, wardrobe and makeup sponsorships and other odds and ends such as luggage.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 26-AUGUST 1, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY and why we share those images around the world via Facebook and Instagram. This years Florida Weekly Pet Lovers edition drew more than 800 photo entries from across Southwest Florida and included some of the sweetest canines and felines imaginable, plus some more exotic critters who have worked their way into their owners hearts and homes. Each photo was beautiful, or funny, or interesting or surprising all spoke to the loving connection between pet and human. In our heart of hearts, we wish we could have awarded first place to each entry. It was tough to choose, and, alas, not everyone could be a winner. Here are this years favorites, chosen by our unapologetically pet-loving editors: First place: Shakespeare, Karma, Sir Effengton and Henri, beloved fur babies belonging to Alisa Coccari and David Paddick of Bonita Springs. Ms. Coccari submitted the picture on July 6, the day her husband snapped it in their home. It is the only one that exists of all four family pets together. Shakespeare, an 11-year-old yellow Labrador retriever, died July 8 after a two-year fight with lymphoma; Henri, a 10-weekold chocolate English Labrador, had been introduced to the family just two weeks prior. Karma, a black Lab who Ms. Coccari describes as the house manager and wise old soul, and Sir Effengton, a rescue cat who THINKS hes a dog, complete the picture. When she learned it was the winning photo, Ms. Coccari broke down and cried. It hit me that this is our only image of all of them together in that magical flash of time, she says, adding she had completely forgotten about entering the Florida Weekly contest. Ms. Coccari rescued Karma 13 years ago from an organization in South Carolina, where she lived at the time. After a move to Boston, she adopted Shakespeare through a Connecticut rescue agency. The three spent several years together in the Cayman Islands before Ms. Coccari moved to Naples to be near her father. Karma, Shakespeare and Ms. Coccari met Mr. Paddick (who volunteers with Hollydogs Greyhound Rescue & Adoption in Bonita) while out on a walk about five years ago. He treated us all to ice cream, and weve been together ever since, she says.

Second place: Lilly and Crosby, senior feline siblings who divide their time between Naples and Somerset, Pa., with Kim and Chris Hindman and their teenage son, Dezi.It took Lilly (short-haired, blue eyes) and Crosby (long-haired, one green eye and one blue eye) about 18 months to come out from under the bed after they were adopted from the Somerset Humane Society five years ago.They had been horribly abused and were frightened and very unfriendly, Ms. Hindman, who estimates the grand dames are 16-18 years old. Now, though, they are finally secure and it gives us all a sense of purpose to have given them peaceful elderly years. The cats share their space with the Hindmans 14-year-old Labradoodle. It has been a humbling experience to keep cats that had been abandoned, Ms. Hindman adds. Third place: Harley, a Yorkiebichon mix whose favorite thing to do is give owner Leslie Kern facials.Even though Harley is not the brightest bulb in the pack of three pampered pups who go back and forth between Naples and North Potomac, Md., with Ms. Kern and her husband, she is absolutely the most loving and joyful creature to ever grace this planet, Ms. Kern says.Harley finds joy in everything, as evidenced by her tail, which wags 24/7, she adds. The Kerns got Harley from a friends litter 10 years ago. Their other dogs are Tucker, a 13-year-old Shihtzu, and Lexi, a 4-year-old Maltese.

COMMENTARY Karl Wickstrom fought for environment BY RAY JUDAHWe should all mourn the recent passing of marine conservationist Karl Wickstrom, founder of Florida Sportsman magazine and inspirational leader in the effort to restore our rivers, estuaries, Everglades and Florida Bay from the ravages of polluted water released from sugar cane fields in south Florida. Like many of us, Karl was heartbroken over the destruction of our marine ecosystem due to the mismanagement of water releases from Lake Okeechobee and politicians at all levels of government unwilling or incapable of getting the water right because of their allegiance to Big Sugars self-serving interest. Our coastal estuaries are in peril due to irresponsible government oversight on the timing and volume of water released from Lake Okeechobee and excessive nutrients, sediments and toxic brew of insecticides, pesticides and fungicides released from sugar cane fields resulting in fish kills, increase frequency and duration of red tide, massive harmful algae blooms and destruction of marine habitat. Karl frequently talked about the importance of our estuaries as vital nursery habitat for over 70 per cent of our commercial and recreational fisheries. He always used to lament the fact that those working to restore our rivers and estuaries were on a 50-year losing streak in trying to influence public policy to prevent the demise of a once bountiful and healthy marine ecosystem. Karl was a kind and gentle man but maintained a firm resolve to fight the corruption and injustices in the political arena to focus public attention on providing responsible stewardship of our precious natural resources. The most meaningful way to honor Karl Wickstroms incredible legacy is to hold your elected officials accountable and work to implement public policy in support of restoring and conserving our marine resources for future generations. Ray Judah, now retired, is a former Lee County commissioner. WICKSTROM

Teens are also four times more likely to engage in risky behaviors, such as rapid acceleration, sudden braking and hard turns, during this period. In contrast, teens on a learners permit drove more safely, with their crash/near crash and risky driving rates similar to those of adults. The study appears in the Journal of Adolescent Health. Given the abrupt increase in driving risks when teenagers start to drive independently, our findings suggest that they may benefit from a more gradual decrease in adult supervision during the first few months of driving alone, said Bruce Simons-Morton, Ed.D., M.P.H., senior investigator at NIHs Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and one of the authors of the study. The study is one of the first to follow the same individuals over time, from the beginning of the learner period through the first year of independent driving, while continuously collecting information using software and cameras installed in the participants vehicles. The study also evaluated parents driving in the same vehicles, over the same time, on similar roads and under similar driving conditions as their children. Near-crash events were those requiring a lastmoment maneuver to avoid a crash, while crashes were physical contact between the drivers vehicle and another object. The study enrolled 90 teenagers and 131 parents in Virginia, and the data collection system was developed by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, Blacksburg. Overall, the study found that the crash/near crash rate for teenagers did not decline over the first year of independent driving, while the rate of risky driving modestly declined. According to the researchers, if teenagers were learning from their experiences, one would expect that the driving risks would consistently decline over time. Teenagers also had a higher risky driving rate under favorable conditions daytime or dry roads compared to less favorable conditions nighttime or wet roads. This finding implies that teenagers may be more careful and less inclined to take risks during unfavorable driving conditions. When comparing male and female teens, the study team found that the risky driving rate did not differ by gender during the learning period. However, when teenagers entered independent driving stages, males had a higher risky driving rate. This rate did not consistently decrease over time for males but did decrease for females. The crash/ near crash rate was similar across genders and driving periods. During the learners permit period, parents are present, so there are some skills that teenagers cannot learn until they are on their own, said Pnina Gershon, Ph.D., the studys lead author. We need a better understanding of how to help teenagers learn safe driving skills when parents or other adults are not present. Striving for patient satisfactionHealth care is changing and so must NCH in order to continuously improve patient satisfaction, quality and safety as well as our colleagues engagement, satisfaction and efficiency. With the above mandate, our team led by CNO Jon Kling, chief administrative officer Zach Bostock, chief experience officer Gary Tomcik, chief medical officer Frank Astor and a group of others including physicians, registered nurses, pharmacists, case managers, social workers and therapists of all types, have started a pilot project on 4 North of the Baker Hospital. This 47-bed, high-volume unit has challenging patient satisfaction scores gleaned from very sick elderly patients. The goal is to decrease hospital-acquired complications while improving patient satisfaction. Traditionally, 4 North cared for cardiac telemetry patients whose physicians were either hospitalists from a few different groups and/or independent physicians. Typically, these hospitalists cared for patients across many in-patient units with wide ranges of illnesses and an understandably unpredictable schedule. Thus, patients, families and nurses caring for these patients could not easily schedule meetings, discussions, queries or other necessities with the attending hospitalist. Face-to-face communication, open dialog among all the caregivers twice a day and full-time geographically dedicated physicians are just some of the early changes and attributes of NCHs new nursing unit model on 4 North led by nurse managers Teresa Deviese and Lauren Vernieri. In speaking with patients, families, physicians, nurses, social workers, case managers, therapists, pharmacists and others, the following comments and facts emerged. A typical older patient who just had successful gall bladder surgery by Dr. Luigi Querusio said of his hospitalist Dr. Shannon Davis, She spends a lot of time with me, always on the floor and available. Not surprisingly, the patient also recognized RN Lindsay Dec: She is very good I love her. The food is also outstanding. Even post-op, the patient was looking forward to his next meal. Another patients adult daughter shared that their hospital visit was the first that they had experienced that she, the daughter, didnt feel it necessary to stay overnight to guard her mom. Patient, husband and daughter agreed everyone was kind, and the environment was very clean and neat. Our RNs and clinical techs also experienced a change in culture as they migrated from a mostly cardiac telemetry floor to now include patients with many other conditions including strokes, post-surgery recoveries and general medical-surgical illnesses. We all understand this model is new and will continue to evolve and grow. As I witnessed these conversations, I had a third-year medical student, LacieTurnbull, from the University of Central Florida with me, also showing that NCH has embraced a culture of learning. Lacie had been with our academic team earlier in her rotation, so she had a chance to catch up with her attending, Dr. Brian Pulford. The results thus far are impressive. The aim of every hospital is to discharge patients safely and early; most patients agree. Unfortunately, our average discharge time has been about 6 p.m. With our new system, we now have 84% of patients discharged before 1 p.m. This earlier time obviously frees up beds, creating the equivalent of about 33 extra beds. Everyone commented on fewer phone calls among caregivers as communication became faceto-face with higher patient and family satisfaction. Moreover, problems and concerns are addressed quickly. Our goal is to keep people well and away from the hospital. But if you need to be hospitalized, you want to have a safe and high quality experience to live a happier, healthier and longer life.

Westberry Email: email@example.com Call 832.418.7238InexplicableSan Diego photographer Mike Sakasegawa prides himself on seeing the beauty in mundane objects, The Washington Post reports. But something about his latest subject took social media by storm. On July 11, as Sakasegawa returned home from his morning run, he noticed a round, yellow object rolling down the street. I thought it was a tennis ball or something, he said, but in fact it was a lemon. So he did what any self-respecting photographer would do: He captured video of the fruit as it continued its journey to the bottom of the hill, then posted his 1.5-minute documentary to Twitter. Within 24 hours the video racked up more than 2.5 million views. I post stuff thats similar to this all the time, Sakasegawa said. Most of the time, it floats on by. By the next day, the lemon video had gained more than 100,000 likes, was retweeted tens of thousands of times, and a literary agent had contacted Sakasegawa, wondering if hed like to make the lemon into a childrens book.Least-competent criminals Rye Wardlaw, 40, chalked up a big FAIL on July 8 at NW Escape Experience in Vancouver, Wash., when he broke into the business in the pre-dawn hours. According to The Washington Post, Wardlaw tried and failed to enter through a back door using a metal pipe, then knocked a hole through the wall. After climbing through, he knocked over a set of lockers. Then, carrying a burrito and a beer he nicked from the companys refrigerator, he wandered into the Kill Room, an escape room dressed to look like a serial murderers hideout. Among the blood-spattered walls and fake cadavers, Wardlaw got scared, but he couldnt ... escape. So he called 911 (four times) and pleaded for help. Clark County Sheriffs officers accepted his confession and charged him with second-degree burglary. In Mesa, Ariz., two troopers with the Arizona Department of Public Safety were surprised to find themselves being pulled over on State Route 51 by a black Dodge Charger on July 11. The troopers were in an unmarked Mustang and had spotted the Charger behind them sporting law enforcement-style emergency lights, reported ABC15 Arizona. A registration check revealed the car was registered to a private citizen, who soon activated his flashing lights and pulled the troopers over. When the (real) troopers approached the Charger, they found 44-year-old Matthew Allen Disbro of Mesa wearing a security uniform and a gun belt with a handgun, cuffs and pepper spray. The car also contained a siren box, police radio and a vest with a baton and knife. Disbro was arrested for impersonating an officer.AwesomeRhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo isnt going to spend her summer sitting in a stuffy office. Instead, she announced on July 14 that she is holding summer office hours at state beaches, beginning with Scarborough State Beach in Narragansett. She and members of the Office of Constituent Services, who will help connect residents with state services, started their new schedule on July 16. The governor told the Associated Press she looks forward to hearing directly from residents while visiting some of the states most popular destinations.Hey, its Florida Indian River County sheriffs officers stopped Earle Stevens Jr., 69, on June 27 after another driver called 911, complaining that Stevens Mercury Grand Marquis kept tapping her bumper in a McDonalds drive-thru lane. The officers noted a strong odor of alcoholic beverage emitting from his breath ... His speech was slurred and his eyes were red and glossy. He also had an open bottle of Jim Beam bourbon in a brown paper bag on the passenger seat. Stevens, of Vero Beach, struggled to produce his ID and said hes never had a valid Florida drivers license, according to Treasure Coast Newspapers. He also explained he was not drinking while driving, only when he stopped for stop signs and traffic signals. After failing several field sobriety tests and a breath test, Stevens was charged with driving under the influence and driving without a license. Florida Highway Patrol officers pulled over a Nissan sedan on May 16 on I-95 after observing erratic driving, reported the Miami Herald. Indeed, Port St. Lucie resident Scott Allen Garrett, 56, smelled of alcohol, had an open bottle of 92-proof Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum on the passenger seat, was slurring his words and had red, very glassy and bloodshot eyes, according to the police report. Garrett then told officers his dog had been driving which would have been notable on its own, but was particularly interesting considering there was no dog in the car with him. Garrett was charged with DUI. N EWS OF THE WEIRD BY THE E D IT O RS A T AND REWS MCM EELDistributed by Universal Press Syndicate
A24 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 26-AUGUST 1, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY We are passionate about bringing spaces to life.Boutique Showroom & Installation Immokalee Readers gets a big boost from NCEF THE IMMOKALEE FOUNDATIONRoberth Webster has a favorite series of books theyre about Pete the Cat. Like many of his classmates in The Immokalee Foundations Immokalee Readers program, Roberth was behind his grade level in reading and needed extra help to catch up. In fact, when he began second grade last fall, he was reading at an early kindergarten level and wouldnt have been able to find out about Pete and his excursions like the fact that Pete goes to the beach and doesnt like the water. Students such as Roberth will continue to learn in the after-school Immokalee Readers program thanks to a strategic initiative partnership award of $358,550 from the Naples Children & Education Foundation. The award fills fundamental gaps in childrens services, according to the wine festival foundations criteria and comes from money donated during the Naples Winter Wine Festival auction in January. Immokalee Readers helps about 650 students in kindergarten through fifth grade in all five Immokalee elementary schools by matching them with high school-age tutors 113 this school year. Supervised by teachers, the tutors meet with their young counterparts after school three or four days a week to supplement their classroom instruction and improve their reading skills. Students at Lake Trafford Elementary, like Roberth, meet four times a week. Roberth has worked hard in both his regular classroom and Immokalee Readers, said Marisol Sanders, Immokalee Readers coordinator. He has made great strides in just a couple of months, and his test scores will likely show that he is now reading at grade level. Ginette Rincon chooses the reading programs for the Immokalee Readers based on students needs and interests. At Lake Trafford, young readers use the LitArt program to boost their reading comprehension, writing skills, oral language skills, phonemic awareness and vocabulary. The young readers arent the only ones who benefit from the Immokalee Readers program. High school students involved in The Immokalee Foundations programs can apply to be tutors. If accepted, they are trained and then supervised by certified classroom teachers. Often, the older students learn something about themselves and may even discover a career path at the same time. Nohemi Vasquez did. Working with the younger students made me realize I wanted to be a teacher, she said. Ms. Vasquez enjoys tutoring the little kids so much she feels as if its not really a job. Working as a tutor opened a lot of doors for me, too, said Ms. Vasquez, who recently graduated from Immokalee High School. One of the teachers told me about a four-year college scholarship, the Homegrown Teacher Scholarship. With the scholarship assistance, Vasquez will attend Florida SouthWestern State College for two years then Florida Gulf Coast University for two years, after which she plans to teach at a Florida public school. Meanwhile, she enjoys her time after school with young readers. Whenever I miss a day they ask, Where were you, Miss Nohemi? And they say theyre going to throw me a going-away party when I go to college. They say theyll miss me. Watching them grow from where they started is amazing and to think we did that together! Each tutoring day, the kids meet in the school cafeteria and have a snack before going to classrooms. The tutors help them with their homework first and then we do activities, Ms. Vasquez said. We make things. The other day we read a book about the Earth, and then we made an Earth with a balloon and papier mache. Then they read. They pick books the teachers supply both fiction and nonfiction and we help them read. Tutors apply for the Immokalee Readers job like any other, said Ms. Sanders. They turn in a resume and are interviewed, which is great experience for them, she said. They have to maintain a 3.0 GPA and remain drugand crimefree. We do drug screens and background checks, too. And as tutors, they get to participate in career panels, ACT and SAT preparation. These are the kids who want to enrich their lives and those of the little ones who need their help. In addition to Immokalee Readers, the Naples Children & Education Foundation award benefits The Immokalee Foundations Junior Academy. The Junior Academy grant will pay for supplies for students and teachers, contract services, snacks and the curriculum, said Amber Barr, after-school program coordinator for The Immokalee Foundation. Immokalee Middle School students usually those in fifth and sixth grades who want to be in the Junior Academy apply and are interviewed, as are their parents. The students grades, behavior and attitude toward school must be good, Barr said. If accepted, the students stay after school three days a week to do their homework and participate in lessons about world affairs, leadership, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), and college and career exploration. The Naples Children & Education Foundation, founders of the Naples Winter Wine Festival, supports effective, disciplined charitable programs that significantly improve the physical, emotional and educational lives of underprivileged and at-risk children in Collier County.

Forty new scholars earn spots in The Immokalee Foundations scholarship programThe Immokalee Foundation recently welcomed 40 new scholars into its Take Stock in Children program. You will not walk this path alone, said Joyce Hagen, board chairwoman, in a message printed on the program for the celebration. As Ms. Hagen welcomed the students, they were surrounded by supportive family members, community and business representatives, mentors and foundation staff. Joel E. Guerrero, who will be in ninth grade in the fall, learned about The Immokalee Foundation and what it could mean to his future as early as sixth grade, when he was accepted into the nonprofits Junior Career Development Program now called the Junior Academy. Since then, Mr. Guerrero has been determined to maintain the good grades and character it takes to earn a spot as a Take Stock student. He had another goal: to overcome his nervousness about speaking in front of a group. He accomplished this by writing answers to questions prompted by his Jr. CDP instructor, reading the answers aloud and talking about them with other students. He isnt sure yet where he will go to college but has narrowed down his choice to the dental field, which is respected, he said, and should allow him the flexibility to maintain commitments to God, family and church. Melanie Gomez Trejo is a new Take Stock in Children student who also plans a career in dentistry as an orthodontist. Like Mr. Guerrero, Ms. Gomez Trejo was familiar with The Immokalee Foundations programs before earning a place in Take Stock. She was in the foundations Career Development Program for high school students and a tutor for the young students in its Immokalee Readers program. Ms. Gomez Trejo, who will be a senior at Immokalee High School in the fall, hopes to be the first in her family to attend college and has her sights set on Florida State University. Adriana Trejo attended the Take Stock in Children induction ceremony with her daughter. It was such an exciting day for both of us, Melanie Gomez Trejo said. My mom was proud of me for being able to be part of this scholarship program. She has been my motivation to work hard at school. Ms. Gomez Trejo has three younger sisters who are 15, 13 and 10. She hopes to be a good role model for them. The families enjoyed the opportunity to see the students introduced and to meet their mentors, said The Immokalee Foundation program events coordinator Victoria Grimaldo. A lot of times, the mentors get to meet their mentees and their mentees families for the first time at this event. The evenings student speaker, Maria Plata, a former Immokalee Foundation Take Stock student, attended Florida Gulf Coast University. After graduating, she traveled to Thailand, Dubai and elsewhere. Shes returned to Immokalee, working on her career and post-secondary opportunity by helping out in her home community as the foundations career and internship coordinator. To hear Maria talk about her postsecondary career path having known her as a high school student, young adult and now my colleague was a real highlight, Ms. Grimaldo said. Other speakers at the induction ceremony represented all aspects of the Take Stock students support system. Dolores Sanchez was the parent speaker; Elizabeth ODonnell spoke on behalf of the mentors and Joyce Hagen represented the foundation board of directors. Following the student, parent and mentor speakers, each group stood and took a pledge. The students promised to maintain at least a 2.5 grade point average, to remain crimeand drug-free, to be a positive role model to other students, to perform community service, and to meet with their mentors regularly. Parents and mentors promised to support of the students goals and to do their part to encourage their success, including asking for help on their behalf, if needed. The new Take Stock in Children students are: Martin Alvarado-Macareno, Anna Astreide, Marthe S. Auguste, Rebecca L. Aviles, Ruth Bellevue, Ruthamar Bellevue, Yuridia CalihuaPanzo, Eduardo A. Chavez Interiano, Christina D. Colin, Mariceliah K. Cruz, Lilia M. Delarosa, Adriana K. Delgado, Nicole E. Diaz-De La Cruz, Meguine Duvert, Fabian Estrada, Pedro Francisco, Araceli Garcia, Diego A.

Salazar Juarez, Gabriel Sanchez, Azael Simon-Quirino, Jasmin Torrijos, Alexis S. Velasco-Santos and Aracely E.

Last year was the third time Ms. Craft entered the Miss International pageant after moving to Florida following the completion of her bachelors degree in Idaho. Ms. Craft was born in Alaska. This year she returned there, finally taking a small plane into Tuluksak, where her dad lives.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 26-AUGUST 1, 2018 BUSINESS A29 I trace my roots back to both a chemical company founded in Korea in 1947 that began making cosmetic creams and an electronics company formed in 1958 that introduced the first radios, TVs, refrigerators, washing machines, elevators and more in Korea. The former was eventually known as Lucky, while the latter went by Goldstar. (Remember Goldstar electronics such as TVs and CD players?) Today my name reflects both companies and my motto is Lifes Good. Based in Seoul, I boast annual sales over $9 billion, and my market value recently topped $13 billion. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. THE MOTLEY FOOLTo Educate, Amuse & Enrich Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest Investment The Motley Fool Take Name That Company Last weeks trivia answer Want to Invest? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and well send you some tips to start investing. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Should You Buy or Rent a Home?Its a classic conundrum: Is it better to buy or rent a home? Theres no one-sizefits-all answer, but here are some reasons to support each option.Renting makes sense if you dont plan to be in the home long enough to make the closing and other one-time costs worthwhile. Its also smart if youre new to a town or region, as it gives you time to get a feel for what neighborhoods you prefer.Renting is ideal for those who dont want to be responsible for maintenance issues, which can consume a lot of time and, often, money. Pipes can burst in the winter, while roofs occasionally need to be repaired or replaced. If youre not handy, you may pay a lot just to have a leaky faucet fixed. Buying a home, on the other hand, can allow you to build equity with every mortgage payment unless, of course, your homes value falls, in which case you can end up underwater, owing more than the home is worth. Over long periods, though, youre likely to build equity, and if property values in your area rise over time, you can eventually sell your home and reap a tidy profit. (Having considerable home equity can also allow you to consider getting a reverse mortgage in retirement, which can provide muchneeded income.) Of course, renters can build wealth by investing in stocks and other things. Homeowners can also benefit from tax breaks, such as the deductibility of mortgage interest paid. That deduction is especially lucrative in the early years of a mortgage, when the bulk of payments are going toward the interest portion of your loan, as opposed to its principal. In addition, you can deduct your property taxes on your return up to a certain point. The property tax deduction used to be unlimited, but for at least the next seven years, its capped at $10,000 annually. Finally, owning a home provides stability. Rents can go up each year, but a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage demands the same monthly loan repayment amount for decades. Bitter CoffeeMy dumbest move was definitely investing in Jammin Java. Stupid me. Joe E., Oak Lawn, IllinoisThe Fool Responds: Jammin Java was a terrible investment for many others, too. In fact, it was a great example of the classic pump-and-dump scheme, and it even ended up being charged with that by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These schemes involve dastardly sorts buying shares of a companys stock and then hyping up the company online or in mailings, often fraudulently. That causes gullible investors to buy shares, driving up the price. The hypesters then sell their shares at a profit, triggering a collapse in the share price that wipes out many investors. In this case, they touted the success of other coffee-centered companies such as Starbucks and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (later Keurig Green Mountain and now Keurig Dr Pepper after a recent merger), suggesting that Jammin Java might perform similarly well. Alas, Jammin Java had no profits and its stock was trading in penny-stock territory (that is, for less than about $5 per share) dangerous ground. Penny stocks are often speculative enterprises, without solid track records of rising revenue and earnings. Jammin Java at one point had a market value north of $400 million and while posting less than $100,000 in revenue, at that! To play it safe, just avoid penny stocks, and with any other portfolio candidates, research them well and favor profitable and growing companies. Banking on This BankUnlike investors in most big U.S. banks, Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) shareholders will not be getting a dividend increase in 2018, nor will the bank increase its buyback. The Federal Reserves annual stress test found that Goldmans capital levels would barely remain over the minimally acceptable level during a severe global recession, and as a condition of their capital plans being conditionally approved, the banks capital return over the next 12 months will not increase. However, its important not to let this temporary headwind steal the spotlight. For starters, the reason for the poor stress test result in the first place is recent tax reform which will ultimately be a positive catalyst for the bank. The big (but one-time) tax hit Goldman took, which reduced its capital levels, was largely due to the deemed repatriation of its foreign earnings. In addition, Goldman has a lot of good things going for it. The initial public offering (IPO) market is the most active its been in years, mergers and acquisitions activity is strong, and thanks to market volatility, Goldmans trading revenue has been picking up. Plus, the companys commercial banking ambitions are starting to produce a significant and rapidly growing revenue stream that has tremendous potential. Indeed, in its first quarter 2018, Goldman grew revenue from its fixed income, currency and commodities trading by more than 20 percent year over year, compared to flat to negative performance by its biggest rivals. I trace my roots back to 1980, when I w as formed as a r esult of a leg al settlement, succeeding a subsidiary of Coastal States Gas Corp. I entered the retail gas business after that, and am now the worlds largest independent petroleum refiner and a premier ethanol producer and fuel marketer. Based in San Antonio, I employ about 10,000 people and oversee 15 petroleum refineries with a combined throughput capacity topping 3 million barrels per day, and 11 ethanol plants with a combined production capacity of 1.45 billion gallons per year. My market value was recently $47 billion. Who am I? (Answer: Valero Energy) Priced for PerfectionQCan you explain the term priced for perfection? C.P., onlineAIt suggests that a stocks price is rather high, with investors expecting perfect performance from it and a correspondingly high valuation. It also hints at riskiness, because if the company makes some mistakes or theres some bad news, the stock price could take a significant hit. Its best to stick to value investing, where you seek healthy, growing companies whose shares are selling for significantly less than you think theyre worth. That gives you a margin of safety to minimize your downside risk. ***QDoes a stock price of $60 per share reflect a company thats financially healthier than one with a $20 stock price? L.G., Greenwood, South CarolinaAA companys share price alone reveals very little. It has meaning mainly when you consider other numbers, such as how many shares there are (many companies have millions, and others have billions) and how much income the company is earning per share. You can assess the companys health by examining its financial statements to see how much cash and debt it has, how rapidly its revenue and earnings are growing, and how fat its profit margins are. If a company has taken on a lot of debt and its sales have been shrinking, its likely not an appealing investment at any price. If a company is growing rapidly, increasing its profit margins, gaining market share in its industry and has a stock price that seems to be below its intrinsic value, its likely a solid investment no matter its price. Remember: A $2 stock can really be worth $0.10, while a $500 stock might be worth $1,000 and be headed there, too. Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to email@example.com.

A30 BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 26-AUGUST 1, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY The 72-year-old billionaire (Stephen Adams) rarely talks to the media, Danika Fears wrote in Yale Daily, ...World and RV dealerships, has over the last five years pursued an aggressive program of snapping up daily and weekly community papers across the United States. The familys patriarch, Stephen Adams, is also well-known in part for a 2005 donation to the Yale University School of Music for $100 million, at that time its largest gift, Yale Daily News reported. His son, Mark Adams, founded Adams Publishing Group in 2013 and is CEO. His father is chairman of APGs board, which also includes his three brothers. In five years, they have acquired at least 27 daily papers, 100 weekly and non-dailies, along with other media-related businesses in 15 states, APGs website says. APGs latest acquisition of Sun Coast is its first in Florida. It includes some 300 employees along with Sun Coasts west coast papers: The Venice Gondolier, The Arcadian, The West Villages Sun, The Englewood Sun, The North Port Sun, The Charlotte Sun and The Charlotte Sun Times. CEO Mark Adams and the Adams familys newspaper broker, Cribb, Green & Cope, who were quoted in a press release about the buyout, did not respond to Florida Weekly phone calls and emails seeking interviews. Sun Coast Media Groups former publisher David Dunn-Rankin could also not be reached for comment last week. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed. The Adams family has also, over the years, been more secretive about its business and philanthropic activities with The Adams Family Foundation than outspoken, reported the Yale Daily News in 2009 and Poynter in 2017. The 72-year-old billionaire (Stephen Adams) rarely talks to the media, Danika Fears wrote in Yale Daily, preferring instead to maintain a low profile despite the enormous success he has achieved. Adams, a devout Christian, conducts business in the same way he does philanthropy: under the radar, blowing as few trumpets as possible. Mr. Dunn-Rankin was quoted in the press release as telling his employees, After 42 years of family ownership, the Dunn-Rankin family has regretfully decided that the time has come to entrust Sun Coast Media Group to another family. Since the loss of our dad two years ago, we have realized that several members of our family have financial needs that can only be met if the company is sold. So, it is with genuine sadness that we made that difficult decision. APGs board chair Stephen Adams said, We are extremely excited to have the Sun Coast Media Group and its associates join the Adams Publishing Group family. The SCMG newspapers are located in one of the great newspaper markets in the United States, with a solid employee group we are eager to welcome aboard our team. A PowerPoint presentation by Mark Adams in 2016 for Inland Press Association outlined APGs plans. Mr. Adams has also posted on APGs Facebook page short videos in which he speaks briefly about the new company. In terms of why weve invested in newspapers and digital products in smaller communities, Mr. Adams says in one video, we think theres a great, exciting and viable future in local community publishing. The PowerPoint presentation shows the company is owned equally by the four Adams siblings and their father. The board consists of those five family members plus two family friends. Their acquisitions started in March 2014, buying out three of four divisions of American Consolidated Media. Among APGs other buyouts are Washington Post Southern Maryland Newspapers and Wyoming Newspapers Inc. APGs operating philosophy is to maintain a profit margin of 15 percent before EBITDA (interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), to keep corporate expenses at just 1.25 percent of revenue and to participate in local community nvestment and engagement. Why newspapers? the PowerPoint poses. For one, Adams is a third-generation media family. Mark Adams grandfather, Cedric Adams, was a radio celebrity in Minneapolis and a newspaper columnist. The PowerPoint also suggests that APG can acquire local papers at a bargain, or out-of-favor local media with compelling purchase attributes. The newspapers already come with seasoned management and are a strong local brand with connection to the community. The newspapers also allow the Adams family to diversify existing investments.

Having started the year at close to multi-year highs, these metals have plummeted in value over the last few months. Some analysts see this move as only the beginning of a further drop while others anticipate higher prices in both the near and short term. So why have these metals fallen and what will affect price movements in the short and long terms? Precious metals such as gold have long been used as a form of money or to store wealth. As early as 600 B.C., gold coins were created as currency. Gold, silver and platinum are relatively rare, malleable, stable, and do not easily react with other substances. This makes them an ideal material with which to create coins. While countries today do not issue precious metal currencies, these metals are still regarded as extremely valuable and are a universal form of money. Precious metals today are traded on an exchange just like any other commodity, such as corn or oil. The largest exchange that trades these contracts is the CME group. Here, people from around the world can buy or sell contracts that enable them to either receive or sell a troy ounce of these metals. The price of these settlements is posted, and that is how the current price of gold or silver is set. Jewelers, miners, investors and industrial users of precious metals all buy and sell contracts on a daily basis. Because the price of precious metals is set via daily trading, any shift in supply or demand will move the price. Over the long run, supply is set by mining companies and demand is set by physical users of the metals. Over the short term, however, investors and speculators move the market by buying and selling the contracts without ever taking possession of the physical metals. It is these players whom most analysts believe have caused the prices of gold, silver and platinum to fall so dramatically over the last few months. Financial investors are selling precious metal futures, and thus pushing the price down, for three main reasons. The first reason is the rise in interest rates. As rates rise, there is a greater incentive to own income-producing assets such as bonds or even bank CDs, and less of an incentive to own assets that do not produce a return such as gold or silver. With the Federal Reserve already increasing rates and indicating that it will continue to do so, many investors are opting to replace their gold holdings with a higher-return security. Second, the strength of the dollar has depressed gold prices. The recent increase in global tariffs and speculation regarding a possible trade war has resulted in many investors pulling their money from less-developed countries and transferring it to the most stable economy, the United States. This has caused the demand and price for the U.S. dollar to rise. And because precious metals are priced in dollars, a stronger dollar means it takes fewer dollars to buy an ounce of the metal, and the price in dollars drops. And finally, the lack of fear in the market has resulted in people selling precious metals. Investors buy gold and silver often as a safe haven for wealth in times of turmoil. But with stocks at historical highs and a lack of serious geopolitical events, many investors do not currently see a need for this protection. Going forward, interest rates and the strength of the dollar will certainly play key roles in how well gold, silver and platinum prices stabilize from these levels over the coming weeks and months. While I cannot predict how this will play out in the short term, I am bullish on precious metals over the long term. If the global economy continues to grow, demand for precious metal jewelry will drive prices higher. If the global economy crashes, precious metals will be a safe haven as stocks or bonds falter. In addition, anticipated higher inflation going forward should drive gold and silver prices higher as investors demand something that will be a constant store of value for them as prices and currency levels fluctuate.

Every day we pay for another study and hire another team of consultants and then three or four months later we get an action plan to solve some issue and then totally reject it and go back to the cycle of hiring attorneys, consultants, and planners. One issue in particular, is Affordable Housing. The term is only used by county leaders to skew the number of housing units in commission districts where the current county staff and Habitat for Humanity leaders either own land, want to buy land, or have alternative sites (parks) available to turn to housing. This does not take into respect other sources of market housing that is affordable. In an analysis of zip codes 34104, 34105, 34112, 34113, and 34114, it was determined that East Naples has over 50 percent of dwellings valued $250,000 or less as compared to Collier County. Spread throughout the county, there are at least 1,440 approved homes Habitat has built in East Naples than is represented by the plan; it is only safe to surmise that other commission district numbers have been swollen or suppressed to support staffs recommendations over the betterment of our community. There is all of this focus on building affordable housing in East Naples, particularly in the Bayshore Arts District and on the East Trail. Yet, the one thing that stands out is the lack of economic diversity. There are no jobs in these areas: storage WEEK OF JULY 26-AUGUST 1, 2018 | B1WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COMCOASTAL REAL ESTATE GUIDENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY House Hunting2954 Tiburon Blvd. E.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 26-AUGUST 1, 2018 REAL ESTATE B3 units, a few small auto repair shops, and some minor outlying retail areas. There are no hotels, no business complexes for new industry, just blighted, empty old shopping centers decaying away along with the infrastructure in the area, beckoning for the return Kelly Road and the impoverished and crime-riddled area surrounding it. County leaders should focus on housing. But they should focus it where the jobs are. Where people can have shorter commutes and not clog up arterial roads for half hour-to hour-long commutes on US 41, SR 951, Pine Ridge and Airport Roads. We have some great business sectors in North Naples, with a job density ratio over twice that of similar areas in East Naples. North Naples doesnt have housing that is affordable and neither does the City of Naples. This forces the majority of northbound traffic on US 41 and westbound traffic on Pine Ridge throughout the day as many workers have shifts, which create multiple work traffic times on these roads. If there was workforce housing in North Naples and in the City of Naples, we would see an immense shift in traffic problems. Incentivizing the growth of mixed income around activity centers should be encouraged only where the needs of economic diversity, infrastructure, and commercial resources are met to support the increase in population. Unfortunately for the citizens of Collier County and for young families and workers, the Board of County Commissioners have ganged up to keep a NIMBY mentality of keeping housing that is affordable out of certain districts and piling it up all in one area; 52 percent of it exists in East Naples, while the overwhelming majority of the jobs are located miles and miles to the north. For the sake of our infrastructure, county leaders must shift the focus of taxpayer dollars, particularly over one million dollars of community redevelopment grants, away from multi-million dollar nonprofits who only buy land and build low-income communities that teachers, firefighters, EMS, and small business owners do not qualify for, and instead use those funds to redevelop business and commerce zones in East Naples, build up a world-class Bayshore Arts District and create an environment for economic diversity and, in time, housing that is affordable for those workers.

B18 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JULY 26-AUGUST 1, 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.

She could be draped in a veil and stitching an intricate design in silk threads while attended by a crew of ladies-inwaiting, or a harried housewife repairing her familys tattered togs attended only by her family. But only when such tasks were outsourced to the textile mills did needlework gain recognition for the skilled art SEE STITCH, C4 Its time for hysteria in The Keys mini-lobster season BY LAURA RICHARDSONFlorida Weekly CorrespondentAttention, lobster lovers everywhere: Christmas in July isnt just a ploy designed by the Hallmark Channel to recycle its cloying made-for-TV holiday movies. Replace the Christmas tree with the glassy surface of the ocean and, here in the Florida Keys at least, the gifts underneath take the form of those scrumptious creatures born to satisfy all your crustacean cravings: succulent, juicy, spiny lobster. The last Wednesday and Thursday of July have been designated as lobster miniseason since 1975 when, in an attempt to reduce tensions between professional and hobbyist bug-hunters, the Florida legislature enacted a bill establishing a 48-hour recreational lobster sport fishing season before the official opening of the commercial season. It was, in short, a success. Mini-season this year is July 25-26, when 48 hours translate into a veritable hysteria out on the reefs, with more than 50,000 people in the water at any given time. Last years estimates posit an increase of more than 900 times the usual density of boat traffic across the reef system. To be clear, thats a lot of boats out on the water and even more bodies underneath them, poking around, often without the proper equipment in the water or dive flags overhead. Its a tumultuous, exciting, dangerous time for anyone out on the water.

I realize those of you who suffer from OCD are rolling on the floor in pain as you process this news, but I cant help it I dont delete. Theres a plethora of the usual SPAM (Dear Miss Davis, Please wire $5,000 to my bank account blah, blah, blah). And since Im a columnist, theres also a ton of press releases about folks getting promoted at their jobs, art festivals accepting submissions and new restaurants opening. I cant bear to delete any of it. Call it email recipient guilt. I also get what seems like a bazillion offers to try new products and, of course, write about them. There are the magical hangover pills: Take two before drinking and wake up feeling GREAT! And the incredible whitening toothpaste: Your friends will be blinded by your smile! One PR firm wants to send me a case of cabernet to review, in which case Ill need the magic hangover pills and the whitening toothpaste to get rid of the morning headaches and the red wine stains on my teeth. But the good news is that among those 7,341 emails are some from my readers. These are the messages I love getting and that I relish reading. After all, feedback, be it good or bad, is what we journalists thrive on. When I wrote about my recent colonoscopy, I heard from Julie in Naples: Your column was delightful. I so much enjoyed reading it and have shared it with others. I am preparing for my second colonoscopy. Thank you for making me laugh and helping me get through this next procedure with a smile (I hope). While my colonoscopy was not exactly delightful, Im glad my column about it was. Good luck on your procedure, Julie of Naples. And remember: That concoction you drink as prep is best poured into a martini glass and gently sipped. Cheers! After my column about the algae and red tide plaguing our local waters was published, Jeff of Fort Myers Beach weighed in with this: We know what happened. Overpopulation, out-of-control building, along with big sugar are to blame for the death of Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel. These things have poisoned the water. The building of the area dikes around Lake O will do nothing but store more poisoned water. It must be stopped at the source, big sugar. The realist in me knows that will never happen and our beaches of old are never coming back. I so hope Jeff of Fort Myers Beach is wrong and that there is hope for the future of our beaches. That said, I strongly believe our power over politicians who accept campaign dollars from big sugar exists in just one place: the voting booth. A few months ago when I wrote about standing up for what you believe in, I mentioned Karen Cooper of Sanibel who married a tree in a Fort Myers city park that was in danger of being destroyed in order for a house to be built on the neighboring lot. She emailed this: Thank you for understanding my marriage to a tree. I know it was unconventional, but I would do it all over again if I thought that tree was again in danger of being destroyed because of development. Yours words were kind while many werent. This is whats wrong with our world ... Im 60 and it was tough to handle all the bullies who know nothing of me. Thank you, Karen. Trust me, though, that not everybody likes it when I my column skirts politics. When I wrote about giving up watching the evening news because I was weary of hearing the latest about Donald Trump, Bill F. was decidedly not delighted: I take offence (sic) to your bashing our President. What a cheap shot. Try to come up with facts as to why you think Pres. Trump is not good for this country. Does putting America first disturb you? Guess what? Pres. Trump will win a second term. That should make you dizzy. Well, Bill F., the thought of Mr. Trump being in office for two terms doesnt necessarily make me dizzy terrified, yes but not dizzy. Still, I love that Bill F. reads my column and was moved to voice his opinion. And even though he wasnt happy with my words in this particular case, Id much rather read what he has to say than skim through an offer for hangover pills. Because no matter what, listening to one another is what can get us through most everything especially these days. stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 26-AUGUST 1, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYform it really is. Now that we rely less on women to clothe their bodies and beautify their homes, its clear that needlework is more than just womens work. Its a profoundly time-consuming and gratifying art that has extended beyond the realm of female domesticity. To that end, the members of the Neapolitan chapter of the Embroiderers Guild of America recently gathered in a cozy Marco Island sitting room for one of their twice-monthly stitch-ins, an opportunity for them to make progress on a current project with the camaraderie of like-minded friends and experts who have become friends and are happy to lend advice and resources to those who are stretching their skills to the limit. Thats one of the nice things about this group, is being able to expand and being pushed outside my limits, said Sandra Baer, who hosted the gathering; she was diligently stitching a small group project in University of Michigans blue and yellow. I have all these people I can draw on and give me advice. Today the group is in the company of two expert needle workers. At one end of the arc of sitters placed on barstools and chairs is Terry Hanway, an Irish parttime resident from County Wicklow who is also a member of the Guild of Irish Lacemakers. Shes working on a beautiful white work piece in the Mountmellick technique. This type of Irish embroidery gained popularity during the Great Famine that started in 1845 when girls could earn some income for their families, she said. Mountmellick was started by the Quakers in the famine and they taught the girls so they could sell them, she said. There was often no other way to make money. Luan Callery, the other accomplished needlewoman in the group today, is sitting at the opposite side of the room in an armchair. She is an award-winning needle worker and designer who favors stumpwork, a three-dimensional embroidery technique, and threadpainting, a surface embroidery technique that uses only one strand at a time of embroidery floss to create wonderfully detailed and dimensional pieces. She often designs her own work and today is creating embroidered leaves with wire and floss for a stumpwork piece. Existing examples of embroidery, which includes any craft that requires a needle to apply thread or yarn in decorative patterns, stretch back to 30,000 year ago to Cro-Magnon Russia and are believed to have originated in Asia and the Middle East. Traditions in Western culture are traced to ancient Greek mythology and were largely viewed as a female domestic skill, along with other fiber arts, such as spinning and weaving. Experts have noted that while theres little change through time in the types of materials used, the craft results in remarkable sturdy and refined work. Most needle workers still use the traditional silk, cotton and wool threads their forbears plied millennia ago. The techniques, however, vary throughout the world, and lavishly embroidered clothing and household goods became a visual signal of wealth, with many noble families employing an in-house embroiderer for personalized and singular service. Nuns, particularly in France and Italy, were often viewed as masters of the craft and employed their skill in the service of the Catholic Church. Unsurprisingly, several of the ladies at the stitch-in were introduced to embroidery by their mothers and grandmothers. Sometime in the 15-16th centuries, materials and techniques became more accessible and a girls facility with a needle became a marker of femininity, indicating her ability to provide clothing and linens for her future family. In colonial America, girls began work on samplers as early as six years of age in order to learn basic stitches, letters and numbers useful for keeping track of linens followed by skilled pictorial work that often conveyed the values and traits of the girl and her family as she approached a marriageable age. Kathy Egan, whose current project is a white-on-white needlepoint pattern, said her mother was always very patient with her as a child learning to manage a needle. My mom had seven kids, and she would stop what she was doing to help me, she said. I got really good at French knots because of her. Now with time, space and a desire to express their creativity, theyve circled back to those elementary skills to build upon them. Its common, Ms. Hanway said, to turn to more utilitarian needle arts like sewing and knitting while raising a family and pick up the pretty techniques again when that phase of life has passed. For many of the women, its a relaxing and productive pastime that can lift them out of their daily stress because they have to focus intently on their work. If you have a stressful day, if you sit down and stitch, your stress melts away, Ms. Hanway said.Ann Smith, who worked on a needlepoint project, agreed and said her needlework was very therapeutic when her husband died. Ms. Egan also echoed the sentiment, acknowledging its calming effect during challenging periods of her life. During the most stressful times of my life I was the most prolific, said Ms. Egan. The relaxed atmosphere and intimate group are benefits of the summer season, when the frenetic pace set by the guilds snowbird members eases once they return home. Only about twenty active members remain in place during the hot months, whereas the group swells during winter to a size that requires a public place for gatherings such as this one. The calendar is packed with stitchins, meetings, field trips this year took the group to St. Petersburg for shopping at Silk Road Needle Arts and Andersens Bead rooms and classes from visiting experts. This past season, in addition to a full roster of events, the group also presented its biennial show of member works to the public. In addition to showcasing their skill to the public, the group also provides demonstrations, awards, a boutique and more. The public is amazed because they have no idea, said Luan Callery. Its a big undertaking, but the guild also has other community outreach initiatives to manage. For example, their chapter began a program in the 1990s to provide a stitched Habitat for Humanity logo for each local family occupying a house provided by the organization. More than 2,000 pieces later, the program has spread throughout the national guild. The Neapolitan Chapter of the Embroiderers Guild of America is open to needle artists of all skill levels and people who are interested in the group may contact the group to attend a stitch-in. To join, guests are invited to contact Maria Genovine at firstname.lastname@example.org for information. Membership applications are also available on the website. The annual cost is $57-$69. Plural memberships are available for a reduced rate. For more information about the group, visit www. embroiderynaples.com.

Thomas & Mercer. 303 pages. Hardcover, $24.95.If youre looking for the usual tantalizing tale of magic, gambling and casino chicanery from James Swain, dont look here. With The King Tides, Mr. Swain has launched a new character and I hope hes launching a new series. Jon Lancaster is something of a throwback to the hardboiled detective school; but there are some tears in the label. He doesnt completely fit. Hes tough, but he has a heart. A former Navy SEAL and a former policeman, Lancaster has a formidable package of skills and experience. As a private detective, freed from the restraints of federal or local governments, he has maintained connections that serve him well. Slovenly and seemingly out of shape, he doesnt make much of a first impression. But thats how he likes it. To his adversaries, and even to his clients, he is a man of surprises. Nicki Pearls life has been turned upside down, the attractive teen constantly being stalked by perverts. Except for one rebellious misdeed, she cant figure out why. If we can believe her innocence, we must wonder how she finds herself in this situation. Nickis father, Dr. Nolan Pearl, has a difficult time thinking Lancaster is the right man to track down his daughters tormentors. His wife is even more reluctant to trust rough-hewn Lancaster. But they succumb to his credentials and his self-confidence. They are in a panic, especially since two creeps attempted to abduct Nicki at a nearby mall. When Lancaster sees a video of the mall scene, he can tell the men are professionals. I might be giving too much away by saying that Nicki is being mistaken for someone else someone in porn videos designed and circulated to attract and trap degenerates. The actress is Beth Daniels, an FBI agent who turned to crimefighting after surviving abduction in her college years. Daniels is also Nickis aunt who is estranged from the family. Now she and Lancaster join forces to save Nicki and to protect other potential victims as well. While Daniels, whose career has been one of frustration, must play by the rules, Lancaster is rule-free. Its an unlikely pairing, but perhaps it has a future. Mr. Swain, who lives in the Tampa area, takes readers through greater Fort Lauderdale, especially the citys seedy and sordid locations. Readers discover how bad people can flourish in bad neighborhoods, which turn out to be good hiding places. While taking us on the tour and deeper into the case, the author brings readers inside the world of the depraved characters whose survival skills are as estimable as their addictions. While his portrait of Lancaster is fully dimensioned and most laudable, Mr. Swains portrait of Daniels is spellbinding. The pressure she has put herself under is tearing her apart. She feels responsible for whats happening to Nicki, as her age-regressed videos have put her niece at risk. Lancaster even tells her what a bad idea it was to use a version of herself as bait. In working out the plot, Mr. Swain peels the onionskin over and over, revealing new if transient understandings of who might be guilty and with what motivations. Suspense is built out of this layering of revelations. We have here a new dimension and a new flavor in Mr. Swains mature career. The narrative prose seems especially fresh, the dialogue particularly crisp and engaging. The writer seems exhilarated with his new direction, this new trick up his sleeve. So is this reader. About the authorJames Swain has written 20 national bestselling novels and has also worked as a magazine editor and screenwriter. His books have been translated into 12 languages and chosen as Mysteries of the Year by Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Reviews. He has received a Florida Book award for fiction and the prestigious Prix Calibre .38 for Best American Crime Writing. When he isnt writing, he enjoys performing close-up magic. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

Since its inception 43 years ago, miniseason has grown to become one of the most well attended and fiercely competitive events in Florida. Thousands of tourists from across the country fly into the Keys days beforehand, filling up hotels, RV parks, marinas and the guestrooms of generous friends and family. Its a huge event for recreational fishers, for the hospitality industry and especially for charter boats, which can sell out months in advance. Families, couples, singles and strangers jostle together, all fighting for a spot on the most coveted boats, many of whom have honed their list of secret dive spots over the course of decades a list so protected youre more likely to learn the Colonels proprietary blend of 11 herbs and spices. Charter customers are outfitted with the necessary gear, whether for SCUBAdiving or skin-diving, and led out onto the reefs to try their luck with a tickle stick. (Yes, thats a real thing. No, you cant get one at Fairvilla.)By the bookThe laws are strict: A legal bug must have a carapace (thats the middle part) of at least 3 inches and weigh at least 1 pound. Anything smaller, lighter or bearing eggs (females can carry as many as 2 million neon orange eggs on their bodies at a time) gets thrown back. In Monroe County, the legal limit is six lobsters per person, per day, with the possession limit on the water equal to the daily bag limit. Rule-breakers who are caught get punished, hard: fines, jail time, their mug shot splashed across the daily sheriffs blog. For those venturing out with a legal charter, a good captain will provide equipment, instruction and a strongly enforced environment of safety for both passengers and the reef. Capt. Steven P. Lamp, who runs Dream Catcher Charters, has seen firsthand how over-enthusiastic and under-prepared tourism can wreak havoc on the delicate reef system that surrounds Key West. He makes sure each of his charters implements safe diving practices as well as environmentally conscious anchoring, the absence of which can cause mass destruction. I cant tell you how many hard groundings we see out there, smashing into the flats with boats that really should not be in the backcountry and anchors that flip over coral heads pulled by folks who power out to get the anchor up, he says. Keep it funIts vital that people take the time to do things safely, not just for their own well-being, but so they can enjoy themselves. According to Lamp, sometimes people get so wrapped up in the frenzy of the season, they forget to have fun on their vacation. I think many folks that come here for the bugs in mini season are under a ton of stress. They try to do the whole vacation thing in three days, he explains. Its pricey. Weather can do anything. Spots are overloaded with people many come here and enjoy the night life, which makes them careless that night and cranky the next day. Lamp has been in the business for more than a decade, and his charters are some of the most highly reviewed in the Keys. Hes seen it all, and nowadays, business is good enough that he only takes a limited number of charters out on one of the two days of mini-season. A living practitioner of the old teach a man to fish adage, he does everything possible to ensure that its the customer who bags his or her bug, not the captain. Lobstering for first-timers can be difficult, he says. We teach the best way we can without harvesting them ourselves. He urges his customers and anyone visiting the island to be respectful of the islands residents, who invite visitors to enjoy the open waters surrounding their home alongside them. More often than not, he says, locals are willing to offer help or guidance. Even if youre not a paying customer, Lamp is adamant that divers should feel comfortable asking for help when they need it especially when it comes to protecting the reef. If you dont know, ask a local, he says. We at Dream Catcher Charters are always ready to help a person who is misguided out there, (in order) to help save our shallows.Safety first, alwaysYou dont have to be Michael Phelps to enjoy a full days worth of lobstering, but it is recommended that participants have, at the very least, an adequate amount of experience with snorkeling. Tides can change, and with so many bodies in the water its important to always have a partner nearby. Diving alone never recommended has had deadly consequences in mini-seasons past; just a couple of years ago, 22-yearold Joseph Grosso had wrapped up a successful day of diving with his brother when he decided to go back down, alone, for one more dive. Its unclear whether Grosso became tangled in his dive rope or simply misjudged the amount of air he had left in his SCUBA tank. He sur-LOBSTERFrom page 1 SEASQUARED CHARTERS / COURTESY PHOTOLobster mini-season Is a huge day for recreational fishers, the hospitality industry and especially for charter boats, which can sell out months in advance.If you dont know, ask a local.

The drive to catch just one more has proven fatal in a number of other instances, which is why so much of the marketing surrounding 2018s mini-season seems to be focused on safe diving practices. For Christy and Chris Johnson of SeaSquared Charters (and yes, its a pun on their C-squared names), its important that none of their customers waste precious energy diving at fruitless spots. Though the duo has amassed hundreds of GPS lobster hole locations over the course of their 13 years in the charter business, they still make sure a crewmember on one of their four boats jumps in first to make sure the hole is live. After ensuring lobsters are present, they offer in-water lessons on how best to locate the bugs and tickle them out of their holes. Like Lamp, its important to the Johnsons that their customers are taught how to catch lobsters themselves, rather than sit back and watch their booty be netted for them. They dont do the work for the guests, but theyre there to coach them for success, says Chris, whose company hosts family-friendly charters for a variety of sport fish year-round. With families, its all about quality time together without the interruption of electronics or the everyday business of life, he explains. Providing them with a charter experience that exceeds their expectations. Showing them the beauty and wonder of our coral reef. Making sure they laugh and have fun. This precise emphasis on the enjoyment of and reverence for nature has become pervasive amongst most charters operating out of the Keys. For the Johnsons, focusing their charters on less-crowded spots a few miles out into Florida Bay ensures their customers are not so bogged down with other bodies that they lose sight of the purpose of the trip: to have fun and, hopefully (but not at risk of ones life), to bring back a bug or two for dinner. If you must strike out on your own guideless through the vast blue void, at least rent a boat from a legitimate outfit. We recommend the good folks at Spencers Boatyard. At the bottom of the Palm Avenue Bridge, Spencers has everything from a 17-foot Boston Whaler to a 22-foot Panga or a 26-foot deck boat, so pick your favorite and Godspeed, mighty bug-hunting warrior.The secret of successAnd now to the good stuff: how best to snag a bug during the mad rush to the reef. First, understand your prey. The spiny lobster is most often found hiding under coral heads, though they can also be spotted walking sl owly forward across the ocean floor. When startled, their leisurely stroll turns into a disappearing act; if they catch even a hint of danger, bugs will flex their tails and jet backward at shocking speed, usually into a deep hole from which extracting them is very difficult. This, friends, is where you want to grab your tickle stick (or your neighbors, if youre into that sort of thing). Gently tease the back of the lobster, which should cause it to amble forward. Once it has emerged from its hidey-hole, youre in position to place your net behind its tail. Take advantage of the creatures builtin defense mechanism by moving your tickle stick to its front. If youve done your job correctly, your bug will be frightened enough to zoom backward right into your net. It might sound easy. But it isnt. Lobster can be fiendishly difficult to coax from their protective caves, and any murkiness in the water can make visibility impossible. You are not allowed to spear them, and if youre lucky enough to find one, you might also find yourself elbowto-elbow with someone who swears they spotted it first. More importantly: Before you can remove a lobster from the ocean to put in your boat, you must measure it to ensure it meets the legal limits. Hundreds of bugs have been lost to those sorry souls who gleefully manage to snare their first one after hours of trying, only to find out its a hair too short. While there are those who swear by the lobster snare method, purists maintain the only real way to catch a bug is by using your own two (gloved) hands. Whichever method you choose, be conscious and wary of other ocean creatures that might make their home alongside a lobster in its hole, including moray eels, stingray, fire coral and lionfish. Steer clear of commercial lobster traps and of protected waters, including the Dry Tortugas and Everglades, too. Make sure your dive gear has been checked recently and that you are in good enough shape to tread water twice as long as you might think. Make sure you have your dive flag, that you never dive alone and that you avoid accidently snaring someones head instead of a lobster. Protect yourself from the sun (contrary to popular belief, clear water is not the same as SPF 50) and have plenty of provisions in your boat, including a radio. Be kind to the reef, and to your fellow hunters. But above all else, before you set out for what promises to be another recordbreaking, heart-pumping, lobster-snatching mini-season: Make sure you have plenty of butter in the fridge back home. Oh, and a pot big enough to hold those tasty suckers.
kind of stretched profile that looks like it wants to own the asphalt. So the first impression is out to be one of extravagance than of the frugal machine within. While the base CT6 starts at $55K, this hybrid is a $76,090 machine. Cadillac makes up that difference by giving it plenty of standard features that would otherwise be upgrades. Theres a headup display, Bose 10-speaker surround sound stereo, 360-degree parking camera, power sunshade, cooled seats, dual rear entertainment screens and a night vision camera. Even with all these amenities, buyers need to be mindful about a very specific option: The all-black interior has nearly no color distinction, and all the plastic pieces have a similar sheen to the leather. In fact, one person thought he was in a rental car. Luckily for Caddy fans, there are two no-cost color options for a far more premium experience. (The gasonly versions of CT6 go one step further with a platinum package thats worth every penny, as it upgrades the interior colors and materials to world-class. Its not available on the Chinese-built hybrid model, though.) Yes, this Caddy came from China. A legendary American brand importing a flagship sedan from the Far East isnt blasphemy; its just economics. All the fully gas-powered CT6s are proudly built in Detroit, but the hybrid version comes from the other factory where the car is far more popular. The Chinese government is making a heavy push away from fossil fuels; in fact, some major cities such as Shanghai have areas where combustion engine cars are not allowed. That makes a plug-in luxury hybrid a true asset in China compared to just a personal statement in the U.S. It would likely be unprofitable for the Detroit factory to tool up for this version, so GMs only real choice for us was to import or to not offer it at all. What really matters in the eco-car world is whats under the hood. Theres a 2.0-liter turbocharged gas engine with two electric motors sandwiched between it and the transmission. The batteries are larger than those of competitors. This eats into the trunk space, but the good news is the CT6 plug-in has a pure electric range of up to 31 miles. Thats impressive in the luxury hybrid world. And this green machine is no slouch. The turbo gas motor makes 265 horsepower, and the electric power brings the total rating to 335 horsepower. When driven for sport instead of economy, the instant torque of the electric motors makes it quick off the line before adding gas power under heavy acceleration. The motors are constantly looking for the ideal balance of gas and electricity, including braking regeneration and battery charging. This causes the car to rev higher in odd situations like idle and lowspeed driving. It doesnt feel like the driver is losing any control, but it does give the impression the vehicle is constantly doing high-level math in the background.Cadillac is not alone in going after the narrow, but distinct, high-class hybrid market. Earlier this year we reviewed the BMW 740e full-size plug-in. On paper, the Cadillac is the instant winner. As a pure electric vehicle, it delivers more than double the 14 miles of the Germanmade Beamer. The Cadillac has 10 more horsepower in pure gas form, and 13 more total horsepower than BMW. Plus, the base price of the CT6 plug-in is $15,875 less than the 740e. The gap is even a bit wider for owners, because the Cadillacs larger range makes it available for a $7,500 tax credit nearly $3,000 more than offered for the BMW. But unlike its more expensive competitors, it takes a mindful eye to properly dial-in the CT6 plug-ins luxurylevel experience. And thats important, because once the kudos for going green die down, flagship cars are more about flaunting premium than value.

ARTS COMMENTARYLooking for a sign? Here it is.If youre looking for a sign in your life, take a drive down McGregor Boulevard. Just outside downtown Fort Myers, at the intersection of McGregor and Altamont (a street name that always makes me think of the Stones), youll likely find one outside Custom Fitness. Owner Karen Goldberg has made a tradition of putting inspirational quotes on a sandwich sign for all to see. Sometimes the sign is on the sidewalk, easily readable from the street as you drive by; sometimes its facing out, propped up against the gyms glass wall. She has only five lines to work with, with room for 10 or 11 characters on each line. Thats even fewer characters than a Tweet. Theyre so short, they sound like Zen koans, or things Yoda might say. The quotes have to do with fitness, but like Nikes Just do it slogan, many can apply to other areas of life, too. For example, a recent one: Fear not going slow. Fear standing still. While you can apply it to the act of getting fit, you can also apply it to so many other things, such as relationships or your career; sometimes progress is made in incremental steps and growth can only be seen in hindsight. Ms. Goldberg, who also acts and directs at Theatre Conspiracy and is a founding member of the company based at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers, likes to approach things creatively. She was inspired to start using signs at her boutique gym after seeing one outside a chiropractors office. It had to do with a Mothers Day special, she says. It said something like, Your Mother called. She wants to feel great, or something like that. I liked the concept. It didnt just say, Come in for three free sessions. It was fun. And you know what? It made me read the sign. When she needed a sign for the gym, she knew it would have to be creative. So she wrote: Your Mom called. She wants better balance. Like all the great artists, I copy, she jokes. Shell find quotes online and use them or reword them for her own purposes. Her favorite? Our heaviest weight is our front door. Its an old trope; if you open that door, youve made the commitment to be there, she says. During the annual Edison Festival, she cleverly put a couple of Thomas Edison quotes on the sign. There is no substitute for hard work was one. Then: Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. Shes also quoted hockey player Wayne Gretzky: You miss 100% of the shots you dont take. I stole one from a gym in France, she allows, adding, Sometimes I write them. And sometimes I amend ones I find online, as theyre too long for my sign. She did have a client suggest one: Blame it on the Bosu. (A Bosu is a halfsphere piece of balancing equipment.) I thought it was hilarious, Ms. Goldberg says. Most people wont get the bossa nova reference (to the old Edye Gorme song), but I do. Some have a sly humor to them, such as the one that read: Running late for work doesnt count. Others include:Excuses dont burn calories, our sauna does. Wake up, kick ass, sleep, repeat. Sweat is just your fat crying! These weights arent going to lift themselves. Sweat, smile and repeat. The body achieves what the mind believes. Just do it. Then do it again. Be stronger than your excuses. If you can text, you can lift. Whether you think you can or cant, youre right. The only bad workout is the one you didnt do. Today is another chance to get it right. Push yourself. No one else will. Muscles look good on you! Sweat or regret. Choose wisely. Healthy looks good on everybody! You cant finish what you dont start. See what happens when you dont give up. Fitness. The gift that keeps giving! Good things come to those who sweat. Dont be average. Be awesome. Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.I want my signs to be inspirational, Ms. Goldberg says, and sometimes I just plain out want funny. And if I find something thats a cross between fitness and funny, thats my favorite. She changes the message frequently. I get bored easily, she says. I dont want a sign that says the same thing all the time. If it did, she explains, the sign would just blend into the landscape and people would stop noticing it. People enjoy them, and often tell her what their favorites are. I do hope to inspire, she says. And, of course, she adds, I hope it gets them in the door.

Be prepared to deal with it on a number of levels, including travel plans and workplace situations. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You might not like all the changes that have begun to take place around you. But try to find something positive in at least some of them that you can put to good use. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A family members unsettling experience could create more problems if its not handled with care and love. And whos the best one to offer all that? You, of course.

For example, he may establish a side suit or devise an endplay, and in so doing raise his chances of making the contract to better than 50 percent and possibly as high as 100 percent. The same general idea applies to cases where a favorable suit break is involved. In todays deal, lets say East wins the spade lead with the queen and continues with the ace, which South ruffs. If South then draws two rounds of trump and plays the ace and another club, hoping for a 2-2 split, he goes down.But this would be the wrong way to play the hand. What he should do after ruffing the spade is lead a heart to the eight, ruff a diamond, cross to the king of hearts, cash the ace of diamonds and ruff dummys last diamond.With all the spades and diamonds eliminated from dummy, South now leads a low club and plays low after West produces the queen. West is then forced to return a diamond or a spade, allowing South to discard a club from dummy while he ruffs in his hand and so make the contract. East cannot save his partner by overtaking the queen of clubs with the king, since he would have to return a spade or a club, either of which also hands declarer the contract. This method of play caters not only to the clubs being 2-2, but also to a 3-1 division with West holding a singleton honor. Similarly, if West should happen to follow low to the first club lead, the nine would then be played from dummy, endplaying East if he started with a singleton club honor. 239.434.6533/thirdstreetsouth.com Over 60 VendorsSaturday Mornings from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m.Stroll & Shop in the parking lot behind Tommy Bahama

Its a minimalist, fascinating study of an unusual but healthy father-daughter relationship that features solid performances from Foster and McKenzie. Rated PG.Jurassic 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.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 maledominated Oceans 11 movies, this female-led dramedy lacks the wit, clarity and ingenuity to keep us interested. Rated PG-13.The Seagull (Annette Bening, Saoirse Ronan, Elisabeth Moss) Based on Anton Chekhovs renowned play, the adaptation follows a group of mismatched lovers at a Russian summer estate in the early 1900s. Some of the humor and drama connects, but too often its too listless to ignite the screen. Youre left with the feeling that youd rather see this extraordinary cast perform the play on stage. Rated PG-13.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.

YesIn the marketing blitz prior to the release of Skyscraper, Dwayne Johnson released two vintage posters for the film, one an ode to Die Hard and the other paying homage to The Towering Inferno. The choices are appropriate, as Skyscraper is very much in the mode of those action classics. And to its credit, its a fun watch in its own right. This is not a movie for the faint of heart or the altophobic. Johnson stars as Will Sawyer, a safety and security expert hired to inspect the new tallest building in the world, called the Pearl, in Hong Kong. The former FBI agent with a prosthetic leg takes his wife Sarah (Neve Campbell), daughter Georgia (McKenna Roberts) and son Henry (Noah Cottrell) along for the trip. Things are fine until Will is double-crossed by his ex-partner (Pablo Schreiber) and framed for setting the 220-story building on fire. Will is across town when the fire begins, which means he needs to get back into the building above the fire line on the 96th floor to save his family, all while being pursued by police. This leads to him climbing up a 100-story crane, rotating it around, swinging its hook to break a window and then jumping from the crane into the building. Its astonishing. The scene is in the trailers and on the films main poster, and it has inspired a good deal of derision for its unlikelihood and ignorance of science. I daresay that if youre worried about the science in an action movie about a tall building on fire starring a former professional wrestler once known as The Rock, youre missing the point. Which is, of course, to have fun with the ride writer/director Rawson Marshall Thurber takes us on. For good measure, Thurber has Johnson walk outside the tower a la Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol. He also uses a hall of mirrors in the climax, a gimmick that so many movies (John Wick 2, etc.) have utilized that its been parodied by Key & Peele. Overall, the action is exciting, nicely edited and highlighted by deathdefying leaps at ridiculously high heights. In other words, youve seen this kind of thing before, just not quite like this. The dialog is clunky and often expository, and the villains are stock characters who lack motivation. Skyscraper does one thing that surprises, though, and its a better movie because of it. The role of the heros wife is often minimal in these types of films, but not here. Campbells Sarah is a surgeon who did three tours of duty in Afghanistan, so she kicks butt as well. And just when you think Sarahs been written out about halfway through, you suddenly learn the story isnt done with her. Good for Thurber for writing the character this way, and for Campbell for playing it with conviction. A strong woman in an enjoyable male-dominated summer action movie is more than enough reason to give this a chance. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Dwayne Johnson and director Rawson Marshall Thurber previously collaborated on the dreadful Central Intelligence (2016). 239.592.4784www.blackforestnaples.comVoted Best German Food 2015, 2016 and 2017 Great German Wines & Beer on Tap Free Strudel with Dinner Tues & SunSUMMER HOT MENU IS BACK!

Im talking about past all those tasty lunch items, past the baked goods counter and even beyond the dizzying array of wines. Nestled in the back right corner of the store is High Tide Bar & Grill, a culinary concept in place for a little over a year as the Mercato Whole Foods underwent a multi-million renovation process. They have breakfast items priced as low as $5 and a great mix of lunch and dinner options made to order. I went with a shareable dish, the burrata caprese with pr osciutto The cheese was light and creamy, with plenty of tomatoes, bruschetta bread and pr osciutto to pair for a delightful, light lunch. One More Thing: Though they do have a wine list guests can choose from, you should be able to buy essentially whatever you want from the store and bring it over to High Tide to pair with your meal. Also an open secret of Whole Foods itself you can try anything in the store. They will open up a full box of whatever goodies catch your eye so you can get a taste-test. Give it a try!

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 26-AUGUST 1, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C23 CUISINE REVIEWNamba offers a delicious sojourn through Japanese-style gastropubThe term izakaya may be new to you, but if youve been to Namba Ramen & Sushi, you have experienced this Japanese version of a gastropub. It has a relaxed, informal vibe, with mellow music wafting through the tranquil space filled with muted hues bamboo lanterns, pale green walls and lots of light wood and a cozy 36 seats. Presiding at the bar is chef/owner Pitak Koko Hermkhunthod, aka Chef Koko. He is the creative force who helped launch Zen Asian Bistro to great acclaim. In January, he opened Namba in the Marketplace at Pelican Bay, on the southwest corner of Vanderbilt Beach Road and U.S. 41. Originally from Thailand, Chef Koko trained in Japan for 5 years, learning the fine art of sushi creation, then headed to New York City and two years with famed Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto. Next was Miami before he landed in Naples. I hope he puts down roots here because his ramen is magnificent, his sushi is a study in elegant simplicity and the small plates we tasted were superb. (A note: The chef returns from a vacation in Thailand and Japan on Aug. 3. While the restaurant is open, there will be no sushi until Monday, Aug. 6.) Know first that because of its diminutive size, Namba (named for a district in Osaka, Japan) takes no reservations, so be prepared for a wait unless you get there at an off hour. Thats what we did, arriving for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The result was that the two servers had plenty of time to cater to our needs and did a fine job of it. There are standard wines available, but we chose sake, which seemed fitting on a blazing summer day. The Ozeki Junmai Daiginjo Sake Platinum needed a bit more chilling when it arrived, but our server quickly brought over an ice bucket. This California sake was smooth and not overly sweet, with subtle fruit and floral notes that complemented the food. As befits an izakaya, there are several small plates that are meant for sharing. We tried the Brussels sprouts ($9), grilled shiitake mushrooms ($8), rock shrimp tempura ($12) and Berkshire pork belly buns ($12). The pork, which is braised for 8 hours, was moist and exceedingly tender, tucked into an equally tender steamed bun that also contained pickled cucumber, lettuce, cilantro, hoisin sauce and a touch of what I think was house-made mayo. There were two of these little treasures and, luckily for me, my companion eats no meat. I devoured every bit. Nothing else could measure up, I thought. I was wrong. The Brussels sprouts were halved, lightly fried, tossed in a light citrus miso dressing then topped with bits of bacon and candied walnuts. Brussels sprout lovers will swoon over these tendercrisp, slightly sweet morsels and those who dont think they like them will change their minds. The grilled shiitakes were brushed with grapeseed oil, tossed in wafu (a blend of soy sauce, rice vinegar, mirin and oil) seasoned butter then topped with red shiso. I secretly wished Id ordered my own dish. Less exotic but also good were the rock shrimp, which were lightly batter and expertly fried to a golden crisp then tossed in seasoned lemon butter. They came with a saucer of house-made mayo that was enhanced with lime and cilantro. From the selection of ramen (seafood, classic, beef and vegan), I settled on the beef hayashi ($14), adding fried red onions ($1) and wood ear mushrooms ($1) to the voluminous assortment of goodies already floating in the broth that cooks for 17 hours. Tonkotsu base broth is made from pork marrow bones that are simmered until they virtually dissolve, making the broth somewhat creamy in texture. To this rich liquid Chef Koko adds thin-sliced Black Angus sirloin, ginger, half a Jidori egg (specially bred, freerange eggs raised in California), bean sprouts, shiitake mushrooms and corn. What a symphony of flavors and textures! It was a feast I couldnt finish after all those small plates. Leftovers were even better the next day. My seafood-loving companion enjoyed blue fin tuna sushi ($6), aburi style Hamachi yellowtail ($12), which was partially grilled then topped with fresh uni (sea urchin) pureed with butter, black tobiko and yuzu skin. He also tried the dynamite baked king crab hand roll ($12). The yellowtail looked delicious but disappeared before I was able to taste it. The same thing happened with the tuna, but we ordered another round. I realized why hed wolfed it down when I tasted it. If you think that all blue fin tuna sushi is the same, try Nambas version. It will set the bar high for all others. I suspect it is the quality of the tuna Chef Koko selects, but it was one of the best Ive ever tasted. The crab roll, with its bounty of real crab, was excellent as well. As I said earlier, the servers were charming and attentive. One would bring a dish and announce, May I present the pork buns! This occurred with each dish and although it was amusing, I came to realize that each dish was a star that deserved such fancy presentation. Dessert? Ive heard great reports about the green tea crme brulee, but Im going to have to go back to try it. We could not eat another bite. After one stellar meal here, its easy to see why Namba is almost always full and why no one seems to mind waiting for one of those prized seats. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com These deep-fried Brussels sprouts will make a believer out of even the most confirmed non-sprout eater. Sushi is another star here. Pictured are, top, the dynamite crab roll, bottom from left, the yellowtail aburi-style sushi and blue fin tuna sushi.KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYBerkshire pork belly buns are standouts on a stellar menu at Namba.

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.
