The goal for the Great Naples Pier Photo Mob was to bathe the Pier in light after sunset, then snap away using long exposure times. The result was a stunning image of the citys iconic emblem as youve likely never seen it before. Blue, green, orange and yellow lights striped the wooden pilings and reflected off the water, mirroring the image across the Gulf. Where a standard camera setting might have captured the darkened outline of the structure against a night sky, the lengthened exposure illuminated and highlighted, offering a new take on a photo opp we all have in our phones camera roll. We had done some photo shoots, some time lapses sunrise and sunset shoots and some group shoots, but this is the first time weve done something this extensive, said Sonny Saunders, who cofounded the group DPI-SIG, 14 years ago. DPI-SIG, or Digital Photography Imaging Special Interest Group, now boasts about 400 photographers who pay annual dues of $30 to gain access to speaking events, photo field trips, social hours, monthly meetings and photo editing software tutorials, among the 20 different offerings. The club is very active, Mr. Saunders said. And I dont know of a club in Florida that has more members than we do. Members have the chance to partake in five or six outings each year. Larry Richardson, a member who heads the outing committee, said the idea for the shoot came after a few trips to the Pier over the years. Richardson said that while the group had shot time lapse photos of the stars coming out over the Pier, they hadnt tried something this elaborate.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 13-19, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYRed-white-and-blue patriotWhen I stepped out of the graduate school of journalism at Columbia University on 116th Street and Broadway in New York City in 1993 with a masters degree in one hand and an honorary lifetime membership at Cannons Bar on 107th in the other, I didnt have a clue even though Id learned a thing or two up there in the Ivies. I learned, for example, that Republican President Theodore Roosevelt had coined the term muckrakers to describe reporters he didnt like. And I learned that one single sentence, known as the First Amendment, not only provided for freedom of boneheads like me in the press, and for free speech (for all the other boneheads), but it allowed folks to peacefully assemble and demand that government redress their grievances, while simultaneously enshrining the separation of church and state. Talk about a hat trick! I also learned that Cannons Bar was a private government and bank, serving as the mailing address for a number of upstanding citizens who had their Social Security or retirement checks mailed directly to the Cannon brothers. They owned the place after their father. The Cannons provided a fourth free drink to any who could get through the first three and remain upright on a bar stool. That was the government giving back. They kept a little black account book behind the bar, cashing the checks of their faithful citizens, the drinkers, and deducting what each owed for the previous month. The rest they returned over the bar in cash, right down to the penny. So I knew how things worked. But I had no idea Id spend the next 25 years working in an environment shaped largely by Teddy Roosevelt in the first decade of the 20th century. I also didnt know how reviled journalists would one day be by some Americans, or how beloved to others. And I never even imagined that one day Id write about an American president named Donald Trump, and have the privilege of calling him Reviler-in-Chief. Mr. Trump, elected 107 years later, has one trait in common with the swaggering, tough, moody, bold, publicity loving, progressive Republican do-gooder Theodore Roosevelt: Hes a spin master. But unlike Roosevelt, the Reviler-inChief doesnt spin the press by meeting and communicating with reporters by using them to get the public behind his goals he does it instead by castigating them, en masse, often through Twitter (Roosevelt would have had a blast with Twitter, too, I figure). Mr. Trumps labels are not nearly as elegant as muckrakers, but theyre thumpingly effective, nevertheless: enemies of the people or fake news. Although Roosevelt criticized and complained about the press frequently, he also let them see for themselves what he was trying to do, famously bringing them into the White House to chat while he shaved in the afternoon, or fixing up a more commodious pressroom. And he followed up on their reports describing terrible injustices in American society by investigating them. Mr. Trump plays golf. When Upton Sinclair, a reporter turned novelist, published The Jungle about grotesquely unhealthy conditions in the Chicago meatpacking plants, he and the president formed a testy alliance. After calling Sinclair a crackpot, Roosevelt investigated. Meat-industry officials expressed outrage, many congressional leaders sided with them, but ultimately the president and Congress passed the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906. It stopped manufacturers from adulterating or mislabeling what they sold people to eat, to drink or to take as medicine. Sinclair told of rats scampering across heaps of rotting flesh, leaving droppings; of tubercular meat packaged and sold at market; of acid corroding workers flesh; and, most shockingly, of men tumbling into cooking-room vats and ignored till all but the bones of them had gone out to the world as Durhams Pure Leaf Lard!, writes historian David Greenberg in The Atlantic, recounting stories from his book, Republic of Spin: An Inside History of the American Presidency. Congress had gotten behind Roosevelt, more or less not for ethical reasons but because hed reached the people. Hed done that with the press. And congressional leaders feared the vote, as a result. Roosevelt used the press to get public backing when he created the Panama Canal, allowing the Navys new steelhulled ships (which he strongly pushed to build, talking about it in the press) to move quickly between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. And he used the press to help establish and safeguard nearly 230 million acres of land, including 150 national forests, the first 55 federal wildlife refuges, five national parks, and the first 18 national monument sites, according to historians at Theodoreroosevelt.org. Teddy Roosevelt hated criticism and he didnt love the press, per se. But he loved the American system, based on the First Amendment, and he cherished the contribution of a free press to the muscle and endurance of the United States. This was his comment in 1918, reacting to a proposal by then-President Woodrow Wilson to allow the president to censor or silence the press at certain times. I hadnt known about Roosevelts observation until now, in spite of my fancy journalism degree; the comment was shared with me by Dr. Robert L. Hilliard, professor emeritus of Visual and Media Arts at Emerson College, a combat-wounded veteran of World War II, a novelist, a playwright, a poet, and the author of a number of books on media, now a resident of Sanibel Island. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public, Roosevelt said. Yes, sir. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Arguably these are even worse times than the mid-19th century, when Charles Dickens wrote his Tale of Two Cities. In the 21st century, we have effectively divided into two countries, separated by impenetrable fortifications. President Donald Trump heads up the hordes on the right. Those on the left are led by, well, actually theyre not really led by anyone. Thats a big part of their problem: All they really do is focus their utter contempt on Trump. Hes constantly making that easy for them. With the latest legal setbacks for Trump and his cartel, the Trump enemies cling to the hope that hell somehow be run out of office. However, their mood darkens the moment they review their track record. Trump is, after all, president of the United States, a concept they couldnt even fathom until he had pulled it off, leaving them in the dust of despair. How could this happen? they wailed. Let us count the ways: For starters, there was the elitist candidate, Hilary Clinton, whose qualifications were so superior to Trumps that it shouldnt have been a contest for her, except she appeared to place herself so much higher I believe high and mighty is the phrase that she really couldnt relate to the rabble below, the ones she called deplorables. When the effete suffered the agony of defeat, they zoomed right into the KublerRoss stages of grief: Their first stop was denial, as in This is just a bad dream. When they woke up to realize that the nightmare was here to stay, they settled on anger. That lasted until their first latte of the morning-after. Then it was on to the bargaining stage, as in I need to understand this, so it never happens again. Unfortunately, they are not really that good at introspection, so when they desperately tried to relate to all those put off by their pretentiousness, they scurried to their Kindles and read Hillbilly Elegy so they could comprehend the motivations of the millions of Trumpsters. After that, they felt that they had done all they needed to do to comprehend what makes the bourgeoisie tick. Then they returned to their safe spaces. By the way, Hillbilly Elegy is about a grossly dysfunctional Appalachian family. It had nothing to do with the mass of Americans who were so fed up and frightened that they voted for Donald Trump because he convinced them he was not part of the corrupt establishment. Many of the anti-Trump forces are stuck in the depression phase. Other than their protest rallies, they sulk in their bubbles. Theyll never move to acceptance, the final stage. The question is whether theyll overcome their usual complacency and actually condescend to vote in November. If they do not and decide that Trump is in such trouble that control of Congress will be a cakewalk, theyll get another pie in the face. Their dreams of rescue by Bob Mueller will be dashed. Donald Trump will stay in office. They, in short, will have blown it. To quote Charles Dickens one more time, the spring of hope will become the winter of despair. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN.Neil Armstrong didnt forget the flagHistory is usually airbrushed to remove a figure who has fallen out of favor with a dictatorship, or to hide away an episode of national shame. Leave it to Hollywood to erase from a national triumph its most iconic moment. The new movie First Man, a biopic about the Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong, omits the planting of the American flag during his historic walk on the surface of the moon. Ryan Gosling, who plays Armstrong in the film, tried to explain the strange editing of his moonwalk: This was widely regarded in the end as a human achievement. I dont think that Neil viewed himself as an American hero. Armstrong was a reticent man, but he surely considered himself an American, and everyone else considered him a hero. (Youre a hero whether you like it or not, one newspaper admonished him.) Gosling added that Armstrongs walk transcended countries and borders, which is literally true, since it occurred 238,900 miles from Earth, although Armstrong got there on an American rocket, walked in an American spacesuit and returned home to America. Apollo 11 was, without doubt, an extraordinary human achievement. Armstrongs famous words upon descending the ladder to the moon were apt: One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. A plaque left behind read: HERE MEN FROM THE PLANET EARTH FIRST SET FOOT UPON THE MOON, JULY 1969 A.D. WE CAME IN PEACE FOR ALL MANKIND. But this was a national effort that depended on American derring-do, sacrifice and treasure. It was a chapter in a space race between the United States and the Soviet Union that involved national prestige and the perceived worth of our respective economic and political systems. The Apollo program wasnt about the brotherhood of man, rather about achieving a national objective before a hated and feared adversary did. The Soviets putting a satellite, Sputnik, into orbit first was a profound political and psychological shock. The U.S. felt it had to rise to the challenge. As Vice President Lyndon Johnson put it: Failure to master space means being second best in every aspect, in the crucial arena of our Cold War world. In the eyes of the world first in space means first, period; second in space is second in everything. The mission of Apollo 11 was, appropriately, soaked in American symbolism. The lunar module was called Eagle, and the command module Columbia. There had been some consideration to putting up a U.N. flag, but it was scotched it would be an American flag and only an American flag. The video of Armstrong and his partner Buzz Aldrin carefully working to set up the flag fully extend it and sink the pole firmly enough in the lunar surface to stand after their awe-inspiring journey hasnt lost any of its power. There may be a crass commercial motive in the omission the Chinese, whose market is so important to big films, might not like overt American patriotic fanfare. Neither does much of our cultural elite. They may prefer not to plant the flag but the heroes of Apollo 11 had no such compunction.

All rights reserved. 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.comPENNYFrom page 1cent sales surtax. The decision is rife with considerations and long-term possibilities; according to county officials, the extra tax would raise an additional $70 million per year for a total of $490 million in additional funds over the seven-year life of the tax. The windfall of cash would result in the funding of 18 projects the county considers high priority, divvied into three categories: transportation/ infrastructure, new facilities or capital improvements, and community projects. As the Great Recession took hold of Southwest Florida in 2008, funding sources the county relies on, such as impact fees and property taxes, took a drastic hit; however, population growth continued to rise. According to county documents, in 2008 Colliers annual budget was roughly $1.3 billion; 10 years later its an estimated $1.157 billion, but an additional 63,000 annual residents now live in the county. With no state income tax to draw from and the countys buildings, parks, amenities, roads and other services aging or overburdened, the county has had to search for alternative funding sources or rely on debt service to pay for projects. Impact fee collections a fee imposed by local governments on development projects to pay for the costs of providing public services to the new development are down about 60 percent from a decade ago (about $105 million in 2007 versus $47.5 million in 2017). With all the growth occurring in the county over the last 10 years (at a more gradual rate compared to the explosion in 2008) coupled with the reduced budget, a number of projects have been shelved, including bridge repairs, road extensions that would ease burdens on currently overcapacity roads, and improvements to aging facilities that are costing exorbitant maintenance efforts, according to Colliers deputy county manager Nick Casalanguida.If voters decide against the tax, the projects that would have benefitted from it will likely be completed anyway, but with the funds being secured through debt service instead, Mr. Casalanguida said. That could cost the county in the neighborhood of $187 million to $250plus million in interest payments over 25 years, in addition to the $450 million principal, according to a county report. About two years ago there was a discussion about backlog as the budget started to form, he said. We brought up the subject of alternative funding sources and did outreach with the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, which put together analysis with county staff. They discovered that 61 of 67 counties in Florida have used this tax. Lee County also has a sales surtax on the ballot in November, but its a half-cent proposal. The Board of Collier County Commissioners deemed it viable, but wanted to give voters the opportunity to decide if it was a good idea. Thats where the referendum came in, Mr. Casalanguida said of the process leading to the upcoming vote. He views the decision for voters as very straightforward. Do you bite down and pay for these projects over the next seven years, or do we want to pay for decades? Mr. Casalanguida noted that the tax has a number of restrictions on types of purchases. Groceries, medical services/ medications and fuel would be exempt from the tax (the county already has a gas tax in place). We estimate that 30 percent of the monies raised will be paid for by tourists and visitors, as opposed to the debt service falling to local taxpayers, Mr. Casalanguida noted. The topic has brought local leaders and voices to the forefront, sharing their thoughts on the issue. Commissioner Penny Taylor has noted that many of her constituents believed her to have voted in a sales tax without their input. Wrong. How we fund these projects and all the remaining projects listed in the referendum ordinance will be a decision of the voters, she wrote in a recent op-ed. Naples resident Dave Trecker, a retired Pfizer executive who frequently submits guest commentaries to Florida Weekly (his commentary on the tax vote is on A18), believes small businesses and struggling residents will bear a disproportionate part of the burden created by the proposed tax. And lets not forget that sales tax revenues can be used only for capital purposes. Operating money would be needed to maintain the new roads and facilities once built, in effect another tax, Mr. Trecker said. Practically all public services in Collier are funded via property taxes or impact fees. Our impact fees are already at the highest level allowed by law (which exacerbates our housing affordability challenges), and everyone is tired of attempts to raise property taxes, said Naples Chamber president Michael Dalby of the vote. Visitors would provide 30 percent of the project funding meaning taxpayers would pay 70 percent of the project cost and no interest. To us, thats the most conservative approach to address these infrastructure needs. J. Dudley Goodlette, a former chairman of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, has been very open with his support for the surtax. He currently serves as chairman for One Collier, a political action committee created by the chamber to voice its support for the tax. We must address the backlog of infrastructure projects from widening roads and replacing bridges to building a community park to accommodate the growing population, Mr. Goodlette recently shared. Below is a glance at all 18 projects that are currently budgeted with a shortfall and would receive funding from the proposed tax. This would account for roughly $420 million of the projected $490 million to be raised over seven years (or whenever that threshold is reached; then the tax would end). The rest of the funds will go to city-specific projects. Transportation projectsOf the projected revenues from the surtax, $191 million is allotted for eight transportation projects that currently have significant shortfalls in the countys

A8 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 13-19, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYfive-year budget projections: five roadway repairs or construction and three involving bridges and/or sidewalks. Vanderbilt Beach Road extension, providing four to six lanes, bike lanes and a sidewalk (part of the county long-range transporation plan). Mr. Casalanguida: Immokalee Road is already under tremendous strain out past Collier Boulevard, meaning we must either expand the road or provide an alternative roadway. To meet the level of service we project, weve got to build the Vanderbilt Beach Road extension.Projected cost: $100 million Funding allotment: $26 million Shortfall: $74 million The projected funding is merely for phase one of the potential buildout. The extension would travel out from Collier Boulevard to either Curry Canal or Wilson Boulevard, with possible connections on at least a half-dozen streets depending on traffic modeling and stakeholder input. Construct 11 new bridges in Golden Gate Estates at the following locations: 16th Street NE (south of 10th Avenue NE), 47th Avenue NE, Wilson Boulevard (south of 33rd Avenue NE), two bridges on 18th Avenue NE (one between Wilson Avenue N and Eighth Street NE, the other between Eighth Street NE and 16th Street NE), 23rd Street SW (one block north of White Boulevard), 13th Street NW (north end), 16th Street SE (south end), Wilson Boulevard South, 62nd Avenue NE (west of 40th Street NE) and 10th Avenue SE (between Everglades Boulevard and Desoto Boulevard). Mr. Casalanguida: The good thing about constructing new bridges is you take away the need to build more roads because you have more connectivity. Projected cost: $88 million Funding allotment: $17 million Shortfall: $71 million The county believes these new bridges will allow for easier navigation of Golden Gate Estates, reduce emergency response times and improve evacuation routes for thousands of residents. Estimated completion of all 11 bridges would be 2029. Complete 11 bridge repairs and replacements; six on Immokalee Road east of State Road 29 (all were built in 1948), four on Oil Well Road (all east of S.R. 29, built in 1951) and one on C.R. 858 at Countyline Road over Obie Canal (built in 1953). Projected cost: $24 million Funding allotment: $16 million Shortfall: $8 million Airport Road widening from Vanderbilt Beach Road to Immokalee Road from 4 to 6 lanes, with bike lanes and sidewalks. The project is in the countys long-range transportation plan, meaning its a project that will be addressed, as its expected use will be over capacity within the next five years. Mr. Casalanguida: The community as a whole adopts a level of service set by the Board of County Commissioners. Projects in the countys long-term plan reflect projected deficiencies in the road system that are happening today, that will happen in the next five years. Projected cost: $17 millionFive-year budget allottment: $13 millionShortfall: $4 million The countys report states that the improvement will relieve congestion and increase capacity by widening this section of road that is projected to be over capacity by 2019. The section will also relieve Goodlette Frank Road from Vanderbilt to Immokalee Road. Pine Ridge Road, Livingston Road and Whippoorwill Road improvements that will relieve congestion of Pine Ridge Road. Also in the countys long-range transportation plan. Projected cost: $31 million Funding allotment: $8 million Shortfall: $23 million The project will construct a continuous flow intersection so drivers turning left onto Pine Ridge Road from Livingston will no longer turn at the intersection. There will be dedicated turn lanes, and two new signals will be added to Livingston Road to the north and south of Pine Ridge. Triangle Boulevard operational improvements to relieve congestion on Triangle, Price Street, U.S. 41 and Collier Boulevard. Projected cost: $6 million Funding allotment: $0 Roundabouts would be constructed at the intersection of Price Street and Waterford, Triangle and Celeste Drive, along with sidewalks on both sides of Triangle from Collier to U.S. 41 and Price Street from U.S. 41 to Waterford, plus turn lane enhancements. Randall Boulevard and Immokalee Road intersection improvement (which is in the countys longrange transportation plan). Projected cost: $14 million Funding allotment: $7 million Shortfall: $7 millionThe project would redesign this intersection with the idea of widening Randall from Immokalee Road to 8th Street in preparation for a future six-lane roadway. Priority sidewalk projects on Carolina Avenue, Carlton Street, Carson Road, Catts Street, County Road 846 East, Livingston Road South, Warren Street and Oakes Boulevard. Projected cost: $10 million Funding allotment: $0 Shortfall: $10 millionFacilities and capital improvementsOf the projected revenues from the surtax, $139 million is allotted for facilities and other capital projects, including hurricane resilience additions, EMS substations and overall improvements and replacements. Construction of the Big Corkscrew Island Regional Park in Golden Gate Estates. Mr. Casalanguida: Those who live in the Estates and northeast Collier have waited a long time for a park. Projected cost: $60 to $80 million Funding allotment: $20 million Shortfall: $40 to $60 million There is currently no regional park in northeast Collier County. The 49-acre property will feature a number of services and amenities similar to the North Collier Regional Park on Livingston Road. Designs already began in 2017 and additional phases of the project are expected to move forward early next year, regardless of the tax vote. Repairs and upgrades to Collier County Sheriffs Office and county substation facilities, including HVAC, roofing and capital equipment replacements. Mr. Casalanguida: The county has more than a billion dollars in building assets. There are a tremendous amount of older buildings are in need of repairs. Its important to note that while some of these expenditures include expensive HVAC units. Some of these are more than 15 years old, however, and replacements would come with multiple year warranties and theyre using 50 percent less energy. From an ROI perspective, maintenance costs alone would more than make up for the capital expense. Projected cost: $62 million Funding allotment: $23 million Shortfall: $39 million According to the county, this aspect of the budget covers 65 individual maintenance projects that span nine CCSO facilities throughout the county. They include significant upfront costs which include roof and HVAC replacements that will save the county significant energy costs in the long run. Renovations at the Naples Jail Center and Immokalee Jail Center buildings. Projected cost: $2.5 million Funding allotment: $1.3 million Shortfall: $1.2 million The county has projected needs for air conditioning replacements elevator improvements and modernizations, painting and building envelope sealing, plumbing improvements, flooring replacements and additional jail cell projects at each facility. A new 90,000-square-foot CCSO forensic/evidence building at the Collier County Resource Recovery Park. Projected cost: $33 million Funding allotment: $0 The new facility would be used for a number of CCSO forensic operations, including the secure storage of evidence, administrative operations and consolidation of other CCSO functions. Upgrades to the Collier Domestic Animal Services building, including HVAC and electrical modernization, renovations to the cat building and constructing an additional shelter space. Projected cost: $6 million Funding allotment: $500,000 Shortfall: $5.5 million Given the age of the building, new insulation and electrical systems need to be added along with a redesign of new dog buildings.

Richardson put the call out to the club, asking for at least 30 members to come with flashlights, glow sticks and colored lights in hand. About half of the 50 attendees lined the Pier and shone their light down the sides into the sand. The other half shot the image from the beach. Then, the groups switched. Typically, we will shoot up to a 30-second exposure, Richardson said. But this time we would begin at 30 seconds and go up to maybe two minutes. The air was heavy with humidity Wednesday when the images were taken. But the atmosphere among participants was light and easy. Experienced photographers were eager to help those new to the technique, and everyone seemed to have fun working together to capture the image. Thats the dynamic of the group at each of its meetings, Mr. Richardson said. I love going to DIP-SIG because everyone is different and everyone brings their own ideas, he said. It keeps you on your toes. Mr. Saunders said that while he and Mr. Richardson have years of professional experience under their belts, many members are amateurs hoping to learn how to take more than your standard Pier shot. Some people have been doing it for 30 years, Mr. Saunders said. Others join the group without a camera.

Call Today and Get Your Birthday Month FREE FOREVER!* Projected cost: $2.5 million Funding allotment: $1.8 million Shortfall: $700,000Community projectsOf the projected revenues from the surtax, $90 million is allotted for community priorities, including a new career and technical training center, David Lawrence Center mental health and addiction treatment facility and a workforce housing land trust. A workforce housing land trust to be held by the county in perpetuity for the development and preservation of the stock of housing that is affordable. Mr. Casalanguida: These projects are generating the most conversation in the community. It gets into the question of what the government is responsible for. The Board felt it was important to set aside property for workforce housing. Projected cost: $20 million Funding allotment: $0 While the county has not identified specific land to acquire, the Urban Land Institutes study in 2017 recommended a local housing trust fund in the county, and the countys own housing study came with a similar recommendation. The goals of this fund would be to purchase land that can reserve housing deemed affordable through extended county ownership, incentivize construction of affordable homes and rentals on county-owned properties and increase the amount of quality of housing for elderly and disabled persons. A career and technical training center located on Florida SouthWestern State Colleges Collier Campus that would serve Southwest Florida. After construction, the building would be staffed and maintained by FSW. Mr. Casalanguida: There is no real local vehicle to drive a big, trained local workforce. Its important to note that following construction of the building, the operations and maintenance cost would be taken over by local universities. They would take over the facility, provide personnel and pay the electric. Projected cost: $15 million Funding allotment: $0 The career and technical training center would provide additional resources for Collier County Public Schools, the Florida state college and university system along with local colleges and universities to provide classroom space and hands-on training in many fields, including trade skills and advanced manufacturing jobs. Construction of a new, 55,000-square-foot David Lawrence Center. Projected cost: $25 million Funding allotment: $0With 30 crisis treatment beds, DLC is consistently at full capacity. Studies have shown that Collier Baker Acts (those deemed in need of emergency mental health treatment or examination) are constantly being transferred out of the county. This larger facility would increase capacity to include an emergency services assessment center, adult crisis stabilization unit, adult detoxification unit licensed as an addiction receiving facility and residential substance abuse treatment unit. It would also function as a Central Receiving Center, providing a place to send those detained under the Baker Act or Marchman Act. The project would also inadvertently reduce the population of the Collier jail system. The David Lawrence Center is also seeking community support along with other state and local government avenues to funding for this project. A 120-bed Veterans Affairs Nursing Home on a 20-acre plot of land. Sites are being explored. Mr. Casalanguida: Collier County is in the top three in the state for need for this nursing home. The $30 million figure is the minimum we could allot because that is the local match required to qualify for federal and state funding. After construction of the building, there would be no local cost to operate or maintain the facility. Projected cost: $30 million Funding allotment: $0Currently the closest state veterans nursing home is in Charlotte County, according to Collier officials. If the tax is approved, scheduling for the facility would then depend on land acquisition, approval from multiple stakeholders and matching of federal funds. PENNYFrom page 11 What restrictions are there on a one-cent sales surtax? The tax applies to the rst $5,000 of the sales amount of items of tangible personal property. This excludes groceries and medicine. Tangible personal property is personal property that you can see, weigh, measure, or touch or is in any manner perceptible to the senses, including power or energy. The $5,000 limit does not apply to the following: Sales of admissions Sales and uses of services (Janitorial services and Security of cers) Sales of service warranties Charges for prepaid calling arrangements Leases, rentals and licenses to use real property or transient accommodations Leases or rentals of parking or storage space for motor vehicles in parking lots or garages Docking or storage space in boat docks and marinas Tie-down or storage space for aircraft. How will the money raised from the proposed sales tax be used? $420 million would go to Collier County to fund 18 projects: Includes $191 million allotted to transportation projects, including improvements to sidewalks, bridges and roadways Includes $139 million for facilities and other capital projects Includes $90 million for community priorities, including a career and technical center, mental health and addiction treatment facility and a workforce housing land trust fund. The cities of Naples, Marco Island and Everglades city would split the remaining $70 million over seven years to use for city projects.

Rude awakeningFormer English soccer star Gary Mabbutt, 57, traveled to South Africa in July to visit his daughter, who works at Kruger National Park, but it wasnt the exotic big game that left the most lasting impression on him. While he was sleeping, he later told the BBC, ... a rat has come into the bedroom, climbed into the bed and has decided to chew on my foot, which Mabbutt couldnt feel because he suffers from Type 1 diabetes and has little feeling in his foot. The rat made quite a big hole in my toe, going down to the bone, and ate underneath my foot. Mabbutt was finally alerted to the rodents presence when it bit his thumb and he saw his bloody foot. He flew back to the United Kingdom, where he underwent surgery and spent a week in the hospital. All the opponents that Ive played against, he said, and I finally get taken out by a rat.Bright ideas The animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals in Maine is seeking state permission to construct a permanent memorial to the 4,500 or so lobsters that perished on Aug. 22 when a truck carrying them crashed in Brunswick. The monument, a 5-foot-tall granite tombstone, would remind everyone that the best way to prevent such tragedies is to go vegan, said Danielle Katz, director of PETA. The proposed wording for the stone is: In memory of the lobsters who suffered and died at this spot August 2018, Try Vegan, PETA and would include a graphic of a lobster. Of course, Maine residents are possibly the least sympathetic about their crustacean counterparts: The Portland Press Herald reports that in 2017, 110 million pounds of lobster were harvested in the state. Along with a nail salon, a massage parlor and a dry cleaner, a mall in Toronto, Canada, is now the site of North Americas first sex doll brothel. Aura Dolls offers an exciting new way for patrons to achieve their desires without the many restrictions and limitations that a real partner may come with, says the companys website. Marketing director Claire Lee told City News on Aug. 27 that customers come in, they have their own room ... a TV monitor that plays adult entertainment and a doll ... will be ready and waiting for you. Lee also assures potential customers that the dolls will be cleaned after each customer using a three-step process. The company says it has had requests from women for male dolls and is considering adding them.HarshLifelong New York Knicks fan Evan Perlmutter, 33, finally hit the wall with his team. Fed up that the Knicks had been promising a better future for a decade, he told Bleacher Report, Perlmutter posted a listing on eBay to sell his fandom. In the description, he promised to root for the team of the auction winners choosing and burn no less than three articles of Knicks memorabilia. Sure enough, he got a bite: James Riedel, 23, of Orange County, California, paid $3,500 for Pe rlmutter s fandom on Aug. 24, converting Perlm utter into a Los Angeles Lakers fan. Pe rlmutter plans to attend a few Lakers games with Riedel and record his destruction of his Knicks gear for Riedels YouTube channel.AwwwwwwwA first date spent surfing in Santa Cruz, Calif., last October ended in an unconventional first kiss when 56-yearold Max Montgomery collapsed from a heart attack on the beach. His date, Andi Traynor, a 45-year-old anesthesiologist, leaped into action, performing CPR until paramedics arrived. Montgomery underwent bypass surgery the next day, and he assured Traynor that she was under no obligation to keep seeing him. Who wants to date someone who just had a heart attack? But she told me she was not going anywhere, he told The Daily Mail on Aug. 29, and in fact, the two are still together, having sealed their relationship with a real kiss.Government in actionThis summer, a few of Ryk Edelsteins friends in Montreal, Canada, had their requests for vanity license plates turned down for being offensive. I found it mind-boggling that innocent-sounding family names or place names were being rejected, Edelstein told the Montreal Gazette. So he decided to order his own vanity plate, requesting the word SMEGMA, which he was certain the Societe de lassurance automobile du Quebec (SAAQ), which issues the plates, would check, and in a million years it would never be approved. But it took SAAQ less than 24 hours to approve the request and issue its congratulations to Edelstein, who now sports the plate on his car. He reports that his wife thought it was funny at first, but now she is none too pleased about this plate.The entrepreneurial spiritWilliam Parrish Jr., 32, and McKenzee Dobbs, 20, of Ocala, were just trying to better accommodate their customers when they turned the kitchen window of their mobile home into a drive-through for heroin addicts. They also installed helpful directional signs and even had a Closed, Please Call Again sign alerting buyers when theyd next be open. Ocala police officers who raided the trailer on Aug. 23 were tipped off by a number of overdoses happening nearby: We were able to determine that the product was laced with fentanyl, police Capt. Steven Cuppy told WFTV. Parrish and Dobbs told Ocala police they thought a drive-through would be less noticeable than people regularly going in and out of the home.

FLORIDA WRITERSBlood, bullets, brutality abound in latest from Jeffery HessTushhog by Jeffery Hess. Down & Out Books. 330 pages. Trade paperback, $17.95.Set in 1981 in Fort Myers and nearby Lehigh Acres, Jeffery Hess second Scotland Ross novel abounds in blood, bullets and brutality. Rival crime cadres vie for power, alliances are reshaped and conditions are such that not taking sides can be an act of courage. Scotland, still mourning the death of his young son, is preoccupied with trying to achieve a life on the right side of the law, but all around him forces are at work to push him over to the wrong side. Though he has a sense of right and wrong, Scotland has a history of poor choices. Also, he has difficulty in checking his instinctive reactions to situations that come his way. Does he have a girlfriend? Well, of course. What would a tall, trim, muscular dude be without a beautiful girlfriend? Gorgeous Kyla, his sexy drummer girl, has an independent streak that makes Scotland nervous. He wants to take care of her to keep her safe. But she has other ideas. Kyla is a fine character, and readers can hope she has a future in Mr. Hess future Scotland Ross installments. Like all of us, Kyla keeps secrets. Finding the balance of intimacy and independence is difficult for both her and Scotland, and the author paints their ups and downs with convincing precision. For an action novel, this one has a lot of talk. Ordinarily, I would find dialogue this detailed and prolonged out of balance with the other elements of storytelling. But Mr. Hess has a flair for orchestrating the various voices (characters) he has created, individualizing them and giving their interplay rhythm and force. The voices project social class, ethnicity, education and personal style. Its mostly a southern smorgasbord, with a bit of New York and Cuba thrown in depending upon which part of the novels criminal spectrum is being represented. Like many a good guy, Scotland gets into trouble by trying to help someone else. A former Navy man, he tries to navigate the streams of criminal interest (violence, drugs, theft, intimidation) that swirl around him, but he can barely keep his head above water. His good heart, his loyalty, his courage and his physical prowess are all on display. Numerically and in other ways, however, the odds seem against him. His lack of caution is also a handicap. When Kyla becomes a hostage in the game, the stakes grow higher and higher. Mr. Hess provides fight scenes galore that build into a frenzy of carnage. Almost like a second language, fight seems to be bred into the culture that has penetrated Scotland Ross. In the front matter of the book, the author defines his title for us: A Southern male who always finishes fights. Several of the characters are unforgettable. These include Cara Quemada, Gator Doug and Luno Luzazzi. In a way, this muscular exercise in Florida noir is also a kind of comingof-age tale. Scotland Ross adolescence has, from one perspective, been delayed way too long. Its time for him to grow up, and he knows it. He takes some giant steps forward in this novel, but he still has a long way to go. Mr. Hess makes Scotlands unsteady progress fascinating and largely admirable. I cant help but root for him. About the authorAside from Tushhog, Jeffery Hess is the author of Beachhead, which launched the Scotland Ross series, and a story collection titled, Cold War Canoe Club. Both earlier books were reviewed in these pages. Also, he is the editor of the award-winning anthologies Home of the Brave: Stories in Uniform and Home of the Brave: Somewhere in the Sand. Prior to earning a masters in creative writing from Queens University of Charlotte and a bachelors in English from the University of South Florida, he served aboard the Navys oldest and newest ships. He has published numerous short stories that recall this period of his life. Mr. Hess has held writing positions at a daily newspaper, a Fortune 500 company and a university-based research center. He leads the Tampa-based DD-214 Writers Workshop for military veterans. 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. philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com HESS

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 13-19, 2018 NEWS A15No sign of cooling offField Supervisor marks 50 years at Conditioned Air BY KRISTINE GILLFlorida Weekly CorrespondentIt was around 1970 when a young William Shorty Sanders and his buddy snuck into his mothers home while she was out of town. They werent throwing a party in her absence. They were there to install air conditioning. Ms. Hendry had grown up without the commodity, but as soon as her beachside home had it, there was no going back. Dont you know when that thing would quit she was telling me Get over here right now, Mr. Sanders said. Mr. Sanders was 21 when he joined the staff at Conditioned Air in Naples. Fifty years later, he feigns confusion when folks ask when hes retiring. At 71, hes now a field supervisor, overseeing much of the work he used to do himself, although he still makes house calls. I dont do it for the money, he said. I like it. I was just very fortunate that at a young age I found something I enjoyed. The companys offices on Mercantile Avenue in East Naples are kept at a crisp, icy temperature. But Shorty remembers when Florida was mostly just hot. Riding to school required rolling all the windows down. And when they slept at night, they only put up with the heat of a bed sheet to deter mosquitoes that floated in through the open casement. While the technology that made air conditioning possible had been around in the United States since the early 1900s, it wasnt widespread until after World War II. By the 1970s, most new cars were equipped with it and public buildings in Florida boasted the amenity. Thats when homeowners got on board. Development in this former swampland skyrocketed. Florida would not be Florida without it, Mr. Sanders said of air conditioning This would not be here. When he first began working at Conditioned Air in 1968, the company had only been around for six years. Technicians who visited homes and businesses had to rely on their skills and a thick paper manual for troubleshooting techniques. Back in the day it was just you and the air conditioning, Mr. Sanders said. No phones, no Internet. These days, air conditioning units can be controlled with a smart phone. And some display error messages that make a technicians job easier. I tell the new guys that I never thought Id have an air conditioner telling me whats wrong with it, Mr. Sanders said. The bulk of the work in the early days of the company was retrofitting old homes with air conditioning. These jobs were called cut-ins and they were a pain. When they werent installing new systems, they were getting calls for repairs, the bulk of which still come after a major storm. As the lightning capital of the country, Floridas weather doesnt pair well with finicky AC units. The regions high humidity is also a culprit of many problems with units. But when business was slow, technicians could go for hours or days without work. That down time led to the creation of service agreements. Existing customers then paid for regular maintenance of their units, which prevented breaks and gave technicians a way to fill their time. Since then, business has been booming. Early on in his career, Mr. Sanders and his wife decided to settle down in Bonita Springs. The company serviced the two-county area and living in the middle made it easy to reach service calls in a given radius. I did move to Naples once, Mr. Sanders said. I had to get outta Naples. Mr. Sanders was just over 5 feet tall and 110 pounds when he entered the military at age 18. I was always the littlest kid around, he said, and a neighbor in his childhood hometown of Fort Myers Beach coined his affectionate nickname of Shorty. But he grew 11 inches his first year in the military. He could have started going by William then, or Bill. But the nickname stuck, which made it easy for customers who later came to request his services by name. It also made it difficult to live in Naples. Id be out at Publix and someone would say, Hey Shorty, my air conditioning is broken. And Id say, OK, Ill take care of it. And then, Hey you fixed my unit, next time youre in my neighborhood, he said. After I worked 10, 11 or 12-hour days, Id get home and have four or five messages. Shorty estimates about 50 percent of his job is knowing how to fix air conditioning units and the other half, perhaps the more important part, is customer service. When he gets a call or arrives at a home, hes often seeing clients on some of their worst days. Theyre hot and stressed and worried about what a repair will cost. When they get hot they get emotional, and they say crazy things, he said. Can you get me a new one? And Ill say, Well, we might not need to. Being able to console a customer while working to repair the unit quickly is part of the job, Shorty says. When he started at Conditioned Air 50 years ago, Shorty made just $1.75 an hour. Holidays were unpaid and vacation was unheard of. Shorty worked 14-hour days regularly, and even though he makes a little more now, he still starts and ends his days with the sun. Im kind of a disciplined person, he said. Steady leadership at the company has also made his job easier. His first boss was at the helm the first 25 years of his career. His current boss has been at it for the same amount of time. Shortys loyalty is only exceeded by his humble attitude, said Theo Etzel, chairman of the board at Conditioned Air. He has consistently demonstrated the core values that we hold dear at Conditioned Air. He has a servants heart to teach people what he knows, treats all people with respect, states what is true and honest, and wants the best for the company to succeed while doing whats right for our customers. And he quietly goes about this mission every day and has done so for the past 50 years. Mr. Sanders advice for young workers applies, no matter the career field. You know what you get out of air? You get what you put into it, he said. And I put a lot into it. I get a lot of satisfaction, I really do.

The open house is an opportunity for high school girls and their parents to learn program details, ask questions about the application process, hear from alumnae, get scholarship information and meet the coaches and director. Interested participants can download the application at www.wellfitgirls. org/apply. The application deadline for the 2019 program is Friday, October 12. This is a program for any teen girl who wants to gain confidence, find their voice and develop their own unique leadership style, says Colby Hazewinkel, executive director of Wellfit Girls. Over the course of five months, the girls learn to let go of negative self-talk and fears that hold them back from their greatness and potential to make a difference in the world. The program prepares the teens physically and mentally for a life-changing trekking expedition to Peru in June. While there, the girls do community service work, trek above 15,000 feet and visit Machu Picchu. Wellfit Girls, based in Naples, was founded by Jill Wheeler in 2014. The girls are challenged to climb high physically and metaphorically at the same time learning that the entire Wellfit Girls journey is training them to climb the mountain ranges they will encounter throughout their lives, Ms. Wheeler says. We take every opportunity to ground the learning throughout the five months into their everyday lives, preparing them mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually for lifes challenges and opportunities. Wellfit Girls offers programs in Naples and Ft. Myers. The groups meet twice weekly after school beginning in January of 2019 with the culminating expedition slated for June 2 to 12, 2019.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 13-19, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY HEALTHY LIVINGWhen feud ends with silence, it takes patience to mend the riftAlthough three years had passed, Sue remembered the argument as if it happened yesterday. Sues daughter Kim had announced she was moving out of Sues home to live with her father. Sue had been stunned. It felt like a knife had pierced her heart. There were several ugly scenes; then total silence. Sue had tried everything she could think of to reconcile, but Kim had refused to answer Sues calls or emails. Those of us who have experienced family feuds firsthand know the enormous swell of conflicting emotions all too well. Even if were initially outraged or feel morally indignant, we often carry a heavy heart and an underlying feeling of sadness.These estrangements are usually excruciatingly painful, often the culmination of years of festering hurts. Even when weve stopped speaking, it doesnt mean upset feelings have subsided. On the contrary, powerful, unresolved emotions are often bubbling under the surface. In the fictionalized vignette above, Sue had called countless times, pleading with Kim to understand Sues position. Invariably, the conversations deteriorated to a shouting match. Neither would change their entrenched positions. Sue tried to enjoy life as best as she could, but it didnt take much watching a mother and daughter walking arm-in-arm, or a sappy movie to reduce her to tears. It was painful for Sue to admit to herself that, in fact, she had been overly preoccupied with her own life after the divorce, and hadnt given her children sufficient attention. Sue further realized that shed been too threatened to allow Kim an opportunity to voice the pain of dividing her loyalty between two warring parents. Sue eventually understood that her efforts to convince Kim to apologize had only further polarized Kim into an angrier, more justified stance. When Sue was able to let go of her position of feeling furious and sorry for herself, she freed up the emotional room to reach out to Kim in a less confrontational, more heartfelt way. She now understood that making changes in an upset, polarized relationship can often be a process requiring patience, critical self-awareness and the recognition there is no guaranteed outcome. Because Sue knew phone conversations had been volatile, she elected instead to send Kim an email acknowledging Kims pain. In it, she said: I think of you often and feel sad so much time has passed. Ive thought a lot about how tough it must have been for you to be caught in the middle of my conflict with Dad. I know I can be defensive when Im upset. I wish I could undo the past, but all I can do is let you know how genuinely sorry I am that you went through so much. I look forward to a day when we can work this out. Sue was hurt when Kim didnt write back. She felt angry shed put herself on the line without any response, wondering if she should give up. Sue next sent Kim a birthday card: Thinking of you on this special day. I hope your day is filled with sunshine. I love you. Again, no word. Sue worked hard to accept the fact Kim might never soften. But, she decided she would persevere in reaching out patiently and non-judgmentally, committed in her quest to reconcile. Months later Sue finally got a response to an email, although not the response she had hoped for. Sue had written: Dear Kim: I recently came across a program from the concert when you sang your amazing solo. I realize now I may not have told you how proud I was of you that night. Your voice brightens every room. We havent spoken for so long, and I imagine you still have so many feelings to sort out. Please know I am here to listen whenever youd like to talk. L ove, Mom.Now, there was a time that Sue might have been infuriated by Kims answer: Thanks for the email. Im still not ready to speak. However, Sue elected to view this as a step forward from Kims stony silence. She replied simply: Kim, I get that. Please take the time you need to sort this out. Sue continued to reach out periodically, without imposing any expectations or making any demands. She worked hard to fill the rest of her life with gratifying relationships and accomplishments.When they finally did meet at a Starbucks a year later, it took tremendous restraint and maturity for Sue to adhere to her resolve to listen quietly until Kim was finished before she spoke. She squelched her natural impulse to jump in defensively when Kim became critical. She also promised herself she would not tolerate being spoken to disrespectfully or abusively. The two took important steps to approach each other differently. The efforts of the women to navigate a very painful time mirrors the hard work of others facing serious conflicts in close relationships. There are occasions when individuals determine it could be emotionally damaging to resume ties. It may then be best to shut a door. But, there are other circumstances, when individuals decide resuming the relationship will be important. While the path to mend ruptured fences is usually far from smooth and will certainly not happen overnight there are thoughtful steps we can take that may be effective in easing the pain of estranged relationships. linda LIPSHUTZllipshutz@floridaweekly.com FSW Collier to become first Blue Zones Project-recognized in FloridaThe Florida SouthWestern State College Collier Campus will become the first Blue Zones Project-recognized college in Florida at an upcoming ceremony on Thursday, Sept. 20. The Blue Zones Project is a community-wide, well-being improvement initiative to help make healthy choices easier for everyone in southwest Florida. It was inspired by the global Blue Zones Project, which began when National Geographic Fellow Dan Buettner researched locations throughout the world where people were living active lives into their hundreds with lower rates of chronic diseases. FSW Collier Campus already has a history of using environmentally friendly practices, with our four newest buildings, campus-wide recycling efforts and our annual GreenFest Expo, said Gail Murphy, director, FSW Collier Campus. These initiatives are about making healthy choices for our planet. Participating in the Blue Zones Project is a natural extension of that with the added focus of good health for people. In order to become a Blue Zones Project-recognized college, at least 25 percent of students must pledge to enroll in the Blue Zones Project and do their best to incorporate the Blue Zones Power 9 principles into their lives, which incorporate healthy eating, natural movement and social principles to communities. The FSW Collier Campus is also taking an active role in the Blue Zones Project by providing healthier food options at student events and making fruits and vegetables more prominent in its cafeteria. It has also installed three refillable water bottle stations around the campus. For more information about the southwest Florida Blue Zones Project, visit southwestflorida.bluezonesproject. com.

It can be measured, and subsequently validated, by competent, outside, objective reviewers like The Joint Commission. It is the nations oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body for health care. TJCs vision statement is, All people always experience the safest, highest quality, best-value health care across all settings. Recently, TJC recertified NCH for its stroke program and total joint replacement (TJR) programs (knee and hip) in addition to our entire system including 73 outpatient locations, Baker Hospital (385 beds) and North Naples Hospital (325 beds). We are the only healthcare system in Southwest Florida to have our entire system, including outpatient clinics and all NCH Physician Group offices, stroke program, and TJR program, up to TJCs high standards. NCH is a big system. In 2017 we had 40,000 admissions; 119,000 emergency department visits; 3,337 births; 311 open heart surgeries; 11,822 surgical procedures; 944 stroke discharges; and 503,158 outpatient encounters. Our stroke program, first certified by TJC four years ago, has grown remarkably since then. The Agency for Health Care Administration, a Florida state agency, deemed NCH a comprehensive stroke center in 2014. NCH cared for 89 percent of stroke patients in Collier County in 2017. Stroke was the fourth leading cause of death in Collier in 2015. Our comprehensive stroke program includes education and prevention. Nevertheless, over 1,400 patients with strokes or stroke-like symptoms arrive in the ED and are met by a team including an ER physician and neurologists. EMS alerts the ED while in transit. Depending on the diagnosis, definitive treatment with clot-busting drugs starts on average in an astoundingly short 36 minutes. If patients need a mechanical thrombectomy, namely removing the clot from the blood vessel in the brain, we have highly competent neuro-interventional radiologists and neurosurgeons available 24/7. We measure our mortality and o utcomes compar ed to the national average as well as the top 25th percentile in the nation. We significantly exceed both these standards. Continuing treatment includes fullservice physical, occupational and speech therapies along with inpatient care at the Brookdale Center for Rehabilitation and Aging. Neuro-interventional radiologist Dr. Mazen AbuAwad has shared our results in Athens, Greece, at the European Stroke Conference. We have also published in respected medical journals. Regarding joints, NCH is perennially the highest volume joint replacement hospital for Medicare patients in Florida. In 2017 we performed 511 total hip replacements and 1,145 total knee replacements. Education of the patient and caregiver weeks prior to surgery in a classroom setting allays anxiety and sets expectations. Pre-operative assessment helps avoid post-op difficulties. Most everyone receives physical therapy and walks on the day of surgery while also taking meals out of bed. Patient satisfaction, objectively measured, is fundamental. allenWEISSallen.weiss@nchmd.org

A18 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 13-19, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY We are passionate about bringing spaces to life.Boutique Showroom & Installation GUEST COMMENTARYA very questionable sales tax BY DAVE TRECKERThe beleaguered taxpayer has little say about most fees and taxes. The government raises them, and the taxpayer pays. His only recourse is to vote out the politicians who did the taxing. But in November the taxpayer will have a say. He will get to decide whether to approve a referendum to raise his own taxes a 1 percent local sales surcharge, a new revenue source for the county. The tax, we are told, is justified because it will fund 18 different projects that must be done. The projects include roads, intersections, bridges; upgrades to county buildings; expanded mental health and vocational training facilities and a trust for affordable housing. To pay for them, the voter is asked to approve a 1 percent tax bump over a seven-year period, estimated to raise $490 million in additional revenues $70 million for the cities and $420 million for county programs. The tax would be capped at purchases of $5,000, and there would be exemptions for groceries and other essentials. Energized by the prospect of getting more money to spend, the county is pressing voters to approve the referendum. Here is some of the misinformation we are hearing. Myth #1 All 18 projects are essential and have to be done now. Its just a matter of how we pay for them.Wrong. All 18 projects dont have to be done now. They are not all essential. For example, a forensic evidence building costing $33 million is not a reason to raise taxes. Neither is an air-conditioning upgrade in government buildings ($39 million). Or escrow money for a VA nursing home that may never come ($30 million). Some of the projects may indeed be important. For example, the Naples Daily News says the Vanderbilt Beach Road extension, Big Corkscrew Regional Park and additional mental health and addiction treatment facilities are must-haves. Fair enough. But not all 18 projects are must-haves. Many are county want-to-haves. Myth #2 Its either the sales tax or taking on debt with $170 million in interest payments. Those are the only options. Nonsense. The $170 million in interest assumes borrowing for all 18 projects, something that would never happen if the projects were considered individually on merit, as they should be. And there are other funding mechanisms. Use budgeted funds and impact fees, especially for roads and bridges already on the books, and pay for them over time. Raise mileage to pay for the truly crucial projects. Borrow selectively, but only for the most important items. Seek private-sector money for things like vocational training, the expense borne by the businesses that benefit most. Explore other payment options, as Commissioners Andy Solis and Bill McDaniel are doing now. Myth #3 A modest tax increase can be easily borne in these prosperous times. Not so. Small businesses operating on thin margins would be impacted, as would residents still struggling to pay for Irma-related repairs. We must remember the sales tax is highly regressive; people who can least afford to pay bear most of the load. And lets not forget that sales tax revenues can be used only for capital purposes. Operating money would be needed to maintain the new roads and facilities once built, in effect another tax. Myth #4 The sales tax is our only chance to deal with addiction in Collier County. If the referendum doesnt pass, our mentally ill will have to sleep in the jail. Thats absurd. If the county commissioners feel mental health/addiction is a crucial problem, they can use existing tax money to deal with it. The commissioners have total budgetary control. They can spend funds however they wish. Its a matter of priorities, deciding whats most important. In fact, the sales tax is an expensive way to solve the problem. To get $25 million for expanding treatment facilities, you have to buy the entire $490 million package. Lets summarize. Not all 18 projects are essential. For those that are, there are ways other than a sales tax to pay for them. The 1 percent increase will be a hardship for some. Commissioners have the wherewithal to deal with crucial problems without a tax increase. The bottom line is that each of the projects should be considered separately on its own merits, not as part of an all-or-nothing bundle. The good news is that more funds are on the way. A $5 billion increase in taxable property forecast for 2018-19 will boost revenues without raising millage or requiring a new tax. Keep these things in mind when deciding whether to vote for the surcharge referendum. A retired Pfizer executive, Mr. Trecker serves on a number of local boards.

MONEY & INVESTINGGrowing trade deficit could hurt corporate profits, in turn the U.S. economyOne of the key policies of President Trump to make America great again is to decrease our trade deficit with the rest of the world. He believes that many of the trade agreements we have with other nations, especially China, are not fair. He has put pressure on these countries to equalize these agreements, mainly in the form of tariffs. Unfortunately for the president, the latest trade deficit figures have come out and they show an ever-widening trade gap with the rest of the world. The July report shows that the U.S. trade deficit increase was the highest in five years. A trade deficit is the dollar amount that imported goods and services exceed the amount of exported goods and services. There is nothing inherently wrong with a trade deficit. In fact, there are many instances where a trade deficit is preferable to a trade surplus. For example, if a country is in a depression while the rest of the worlds economy is expanding, that country will consume less, resulting in fewer imports, but export more, leading to a trade surplus. Similarly, if one country is growing its economy while the rest of the worlds economy is shrinking, that country may consume more imported goods while exporting less but still be in very good economic position. What bothers many politicians regarding the U.S. trade deficit is that they believe it is caused not by economic supply and demand but rather other countries manipulating their currencies, subsidies, tariffs and tax policies. They believe this results in lower demand for U.S. goods abroad, a higher trade deficit and loss of jobs within the U.S. It is these perceived policies by foreign governments that President Trump is attempting to change through modifying our trade agreements and imposing tariffs on certain goods from specific countries. So far, the actions taken by the U.S. have not lessened our trade deficits. There are a few explanations given for the widening figures. First, the U.S. economy is expanding and wealth is growing, which has amplified the demand for all goods including foreignproduced products. This has increased imports flowing into the U.S. At the same time, many foreign countries, especially emerging market economies, have seen their growth rates slow down. As a result, they have demanded fewer U.S. goods and services. Another factor influencing the trade deficit is the strong dollar. Weaker foreign currencies make U.S. goods more expensive abroad while decreasing the cost of imported items. In addition, a noticeable decrease in agricultural product exports like soybeans fueled a higher trade deficit as retaliatory tariffs from countries like China hurt U.S. farmers. Should we be worried about growing trade deficits? In the short run no, as this increase is being caused by a consumer with more money spending more on goods and services. However, with fewer foreign customers purchasing our products, this can have a detrimental affect on corporate profits in the latter part of this year and next year. I will be paying close attention to large multinational corporation earnings reports over the upcoming months to see just how big an affect this will have on our economy.

Email us at foolnews@fool.com, and well send you some tips to start investing. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Red Flags Signaling Bankruptcy RiskWhen a company files for bankruptcy protection, many of its stockholders are taken by surprise and often lose most or all of their investment. You can save yourself a lot of heartache and dollars by learning to spot warning signs among your holdings. A company goes bankrupt when it runs out of the cash it needs to operate. To assess a companys bankruptcy risk, start with its debt load. Borrowed money can be helpful to a company, boosting returns in good times. But it can also amplify risk in bad times. A debt-laden company suddenly facing declining sales can cut its dividend but it still has to make its interest payments, and eventually its principal repayment. Worse still, when the economy goes south, access to additional financing can be costly or not available at all. The amount of debt a company can handle is influenced by its industry. A utility company with predictable cash flows, for example, can manage debt better than retailers or manufacturers whose cash flows can fluctuate widely. (It can be helpful to compare a companys debt level with those of its competitors.) Industry aside, compare a companys debt load to its cash what it currently has on its balance sheet, and what it can generate. Ideally, it will be able to pay any debt due in the next year (often referred to as short-term debt) with cash on hand and make its interest payments many times over with its free cash flow. (You can find figures for assets, cash flow, debt and more at sites such as morningstar.com and finance.yahoo. com, which offer data from companies financial statements.) Look for other warning signs, too. Is its pension plan underfunded? Is its industry vulnerable to rapid obsolescence? Is it under investigation for any irregularities? Is the company buying back shares at inflated prices with money it should be using in better ways? Is it paying dividends when it cant afford to? Stay away from companies that appear to be candidates for bankruptcy court. Dividend PowerI retired from a bank in Mississippi in 1990 with some shares of the companys stock. I added a little more money to it and let it ride. After less than a decade, the mere $175 that Id invested had grown to be worth more than $1,800, counting dividends received. The dumbest thing I did was not buying more stock early on! M.H., Gulfport, MississippiThe Fool Responds: Your story illustrates the power of reinvesting dividends. When many investors receive dividends from their investments, they take them out in cash. Or they might just leave the cash in their brokerage account. A more effective wealth-building strategy is to have your dividends automatically reinvested in additional shares of the companys stock. Some brokerages will do that for you, and with ones that dont, you can simply take the cash that accumulates in your account and, on your own, buy shares of the same stock or stock in even more promising companies. Not every investment will do as well as yours did over a few years, of course you reaped the equivalent of annual returns of more than 70 percent! The stock markets average annual return is closer to 10 percent. Youre right, though investing meaningful sums early and letting them grow for decades is a great way to build a substantial nest egg for your retirement. A Towering Portfolio CandidateUsage of cellphones and smartphones is still growing rapidly around the world. So telecom companies need to keep adding broadcast equipment to handle the traffic, and that means more equipment on structures like cell towers and rooftop spires. If youd like to profit from this scenario, consider American Tower (NYSE: AMT), with a dividend recently yielding 2.1 percent. Its a real estate investment trust (REIT) thats one of the worlds largest owners of towers and other structures designed to hold telecommunications equipment. As telecom companies would generally rather not have to spend money building towers or buying land, American Tower can lease space to multiple clients on the same structure. This has been a lucrative arrangement, as the company has grown its bottom line by an average of 16 percent annually over the past decade. Of American Towers 170,000 or so communication sites, only 40,000 of them are in the U.S. Management is investing heavily in fast-growing markets such as India and Nigeria, where wireless data usage has been increasing at a far faster rate than in the U.S. Also, as more mature wireless networks start the commercial rollout of 5G, telecom companies will likely be renting more space on existing infrastructure. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended American Tower and has the following options on it: short October 2018 $135 calls and long January 2019 $80 calls.) Castles, Companies Need MoatsQWhat does a moat refer to in business-speak? P.O., Walnut Creek, CaliforniaAJust as with a castle, if a company has a wide moat, it will be hard for any enemies to attack it. Thus, a moat refers to the sustainable competitive advantages a company may have that can protect its market position and defend against competitors or wouldbe competitors. Competitive advantages can include patents, a strong brand, economies of scale, barriers to entry, and high switching costs. Think of Apple as an example. Its strong brand attracts many customers who associate it with high quality and good design, and once theyre in the Apple environment, it can seem like too much of a pain to switch out of it.Boeing, meanwhile, encounters few new competitors because its so costly to start manufacturing aircraft. ***QWhat is the U.S. inflation rate, and how does it compare to that of other countries? S.S., Greenville, North CarolinaAThe United States inflation rate was recently about 2.5 percent, according to the International Monetary Fund, below the long-termaverage of about 3 percent per year. Meanwhile, it was 0.7 percent in Switzerland, 1.1 percent in Japan, 2.5 percent in China, 2.7 percent in the United Kingdom, 2.8 percent in Russia, 5 percent in India, 11.4 percent in Turkey, 22.7 percent in Argentina and 13,864.6 percent in Venezuela.That Venezuelan rate reflects the phenomenon of hyperinflation, when inflation is occurring at rates higher than about 50 percent monthly. When prices rise that quickly, the money that people have in their pockets and savings accounts rapidly loses its value and the economy is dangerously destabilized. Hyperinflation, often triggered by governments printing too much money, occurred in Germany after World War I and more recently in Zimbabwe. Want more information about stocks?

A22 BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 13-19, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ance, just remember this: Your client relationships are built on emotions and trust, so use technology only in a way that maintains, enhances and propels those relationships to the next level, he advises. Mr. Krasnow attributes his career journey to his ability to build strong personal relationships. Following early success in the clothing industry, he experienced a devastating bankruptcy that forced him to rebuild his life from scratch. He went on to join Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company, where he created an impressive financial portfolio and won multiple Top Agent awards. He still serves clients today and they love him as much as they ever did. Human needs dont change, he says. Relationships mattered in the days of pencil, paper and snail mail, and they still matter in the days of Facebook and Skype. Ideally, you would meet with all of your clients in person, but of course thats not always practical. Still, Mr. Krasnow says you should invest in at least one face-to-face meeting with your top clients. Then, use a carefully balanced mix of technology to maintain the relationship. Here are a few of his tips for using tech the right way. Dont let faceless and voiceless technology become your primary communication tool Nothing can replace the effectiveness of a face-toface encounter (even if its by Skype), especially in the early phases of your client relationship. And meaningful phone conversations can be great, too. Its fine to use less powerful tech solutions like email, texting and e-blasts to stay in close contact with your clients. These can enhance and strengthen a well-established relationship. But they should only be supplemental. Skype important meetings when you cant be there in person In-person interactions are best for relationship building especially with your top clients but of course they cant always happen. Video conferencing is second best. Make sure you use this tech tool often. Its a great way to read body language and facial expressions, which is crucial for building trust and establishing positive, productive relationships. Pick up the phone regularly Many people dislike the phone. Conversations can be long and meandering, and were all busy. But you must overcome your phone phobia. In terms of relationship building (not to mention problem solving), there is no substitute for the give and take that happens voice-to-voice. Schedule phone conversations with clients to catch up and find out how they are doing. Keep that human connection alive. Pay attention to how the client communicates If a client seems to prefer phone, text or in-person communication, make a note of it and honor his or her preference while maintaining your own dedication to person-toperson contact. This shows clients you care about and respect their preferences. Find a happy balance between the clients style, yours and the demands of the day. Match the medium to the message If you want to distinguish yourself and have something very important to say, write a letter. If you are trying to book an appointment with a busy person, or if you have to figure out something complex or discuss a potentially sensitive issue, pick up the phone. If you only want confirmation of a small piece of information and youve recently spoken with a client, feel free to use email. Let your instinct be your guide. Be thoughtful and deliberate with social media Your competition is taking advantage of these platforms and so should you. But make sure your online presence is well planned and executed. Your Facebook or LinkedIn posts should meaningfully connect back to your brand and mission and provide value to clients and other readers. Dont bombard your followers with inane content. This negates your credibility. Post less and make sure your content is good. Keep your website young and agile Is your website in alignment with your business image and your mission? Make sure its as professional and sleek as your personal appearance is when you meet a client for the first time. Successful companies have streamlined, up-to-date websites with modern fonts, colors and layouts. If its been a while since youve changed your website design, a tune-up and a facelift are most likely in order. Use email to send links to articles you think your client might enjoy Trusting relationships thrive on frequent contact. To solidify your connection to clients, especially when you havent talked in a while, send them little links and articles you know they will enjoy. This gesture shows you are thinking about them and know where their interests lie. Just keep these communications in balance; bombarding clients with superficial links and articles could actually weaken the value of your contact with them and undermine your relationship. Send e-newsletters to all your clients This a good way to engage regularly with clients and stay on their minds. Create compelling content that connects with the various lines of services you are currently offering and craft interesting articles for your clients around related topics. Personalize your high-tech communication Sometimes e-blasts make sense, but whenever possible, include a small personal note at the top that lets the client see they matter to you. Allow clients to login and access their information Whenever possible, empower clients by putting information at their fingertips. This not only saves time for your clients when they need to get a small piece of information, but also goes a long way toward building mutual trust. If you harness the power of technology correctly, it can do wonderful things for your business, Mr. Krasnow concludes. But remember that it is only one tool in your toolbox. Use technology to enhance business, but dont let it overshadow your mission to keep trust-based client relationships at the center of everything you do.

B10 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 13-19, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bays second tower hits the $138 million sales markClub Amenity Center popular with residents The construction of the second tower in Kalea Bay, the gated, luxury high-rise community located in North Naples, is now well underway. Currently, three construction cranes are onsite as work continues on the lower floors. As the footprint for Tower 200 begins to take shape, sales in the high-rise building have remained extremely strong. We originally launched our sales effort for our second tower in July 2017, sated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. Since then, we have sold 65 of the towers 120 residences. That represents a total sales volume of $138 million. Like its predecessor, Tower 200 is also 22-stories with 120 residences. Specifically, 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5 are 4-bedroom/4.5 bath plans with 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans with 3,919 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower.Master suites, kitchens and main living areas in most units have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features. Like the first tower, Tower 200 will also have rooftop amenities including a pool, open-air fitness center and a sky lounge.Prices in Tower 200 begin at $1.4 million.The residents of the first tower, along with their family members and friends, are already enjoying the communitys Club amenity center. It opened in early January and is now the social and recreational centerpiece of the community. The 88,000-square-foot club amenity center is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance, stated Lodge. Not only is it a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but its now the envy of every community in the Naples area. She added, Purchasers in Tower 200 can start using the club and its amenities the day they sign their contracts, affording them an unprecedented opportunity to utilize this amazing $25 million world-class amenity center. The clubhouse itself features three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, bistro, a fitness center, and lakeside fire pit.

Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, above. Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins Returns, right. Catching the dreamLiz Moriondo, one of the songwriters performing at the Island Hopper Songwriter Fest, learned discipline by playing college basketball. BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.comEverything Liz Moriondo needed to know about songwriting she learned by playing college basketball. Well, at least the fundamentals. Things such as the discipline, the perseverance and working as team, she lists. Being in the music industry, chasing a dream like this takes a lot of people. Anybody who tells you they did it on their own is full of it. Nobody does it on their own. I had to incorporate those skills I learned working with others on a basketball team and on the basketball floor, she says. The country singer/songwriter played basketball in college on a scholarship, but during the summer she was 19, Ms. Moriondo realized she needed to shift gears and devote herself to music. The first time she sang a solo was when she was three, belting out Feeling Mighty Fine at her grandmothers church, Summit Baptist Church. Her grandmother accompanied her on piano. I always knew music was what I wanted to do, she says. When she was 19, she had the opportunity to get up and sing, backed by a live band. She performed Miranda Lamberts song Gunpowder and Lead. I had never done that before, she says. Id sung to karaoke tracks. The experience was life-changing. I felt so at peace and at ease (onstage), she says. It came so naturally to me. And it just felt so good. I knew: This is what Im supposed to do. I need to quit waiting around to chase this dream. That was my definite moment. I remember coming home that night. I woke my mother up in the middle of the night and said, I need to get to Nashville ASAP. Writing ChallengeAre you up for the Florida Weekly writing contest?

LONGEST TRACK RECORD OF FOOT & ANKLE SURGERY SUCCESS IN COLLIER COUNTYIt wasnt a habit I gave up nine years ago it was an addictionNot much shocks me anymore in this world but I always find myself amazed when I see that people still smoke. Im not all Judgy McJudgerson about it, either. I smoked nearly two packs a day for 37 years (minus the nine-month period when I was pregnant with my son) so, trust me I understand nicotine addiction. But, as I approach my ninth year without a cigarette, it boggles my mind when I see people, especially people in my age group or older, standing outside a building in 95-degree heat sucking down a cigarette. Over Labor Day weekend, my husband and I took our Airstream, Dorothy, up to a campground on the Myakka River in Venice for a short getaway. As we arrived, it was storming, with lightning striking every few seconds, and sheets of rain coming in sideways. We sat in our truck for a while, waiting for it to die down. Todd busied himself checking emails on his phone. But, I couldnt take my eyes off a woman standing outside under a small awning barely keeping her from the elements, smoking a cigarette. And it wasnt a leisurely, relaxed smoke. She was taking long, frantic drags with barely a pause in between as she flinched with each crack of thunder. She was probably in her mid-50s, pretty and petite. She didnt look particularly unhealthy from the outside and I wondered, how can she still smoke and I cant? I cant smoke because Im addicted to nicotine. It took me 37 years and too many a-ha moments like standing outside in a raging thunderstorm to get my fix to realize that I wasnt smoking because it was fun. Fun smoking is when you enjoy the occasional cigarette with a glass of wine, but you never actually buy a pack. Addiction is when you smoke half a pack while you enjoy the occasional glass of wine. I long to be a social smoker, I would imagine, in the same way that an alcoholic might long to be a social drinker. Its frustrating when someone says to me, Im so glad you quit smoking its such a nasty habit. A habit is biting your nails or twirling your hair. An addiction is constantly filling your lungs with a drug that you know is lethal. No one has ever called meth addiction a habit. Gosh, he sure would have nicer teeth if he would just stop that meth habit. Quitting smoking took every bit of strength and will I had. It was the most difficult thing and the best thing Ive ever done for myself. And now that I rarely encounter smokers anymore, when I do see someone with a cigarette in her hand, I wonder what makes her different than me. Does she have stronger lungs, better genes, maybe a super power that protects her from cancer? Theres a part of me that almost feels envious. Its not so much that I still crave cigarettes in fact, I never really think about them at all anymore until I see someone smoking. And then, its less of a craving and more of a marveling. What makes that woman smoking in the rain different from me? As I watched her and wondered, a blinding bolt of lightning came striking down between our truck and the awning she was smoking under, followed by a violent crack in the sky. I jumped in my seat and yelped. She dropped her burning cigarette, turned around, and ran inside the building. I guess she and I really arent that different after all. stephanieDAVIS sdavis@floridaweekly.com

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 13-19, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYGiven that statistics suggest October and November releases are the most likely to win major Oscars, its possible that the next Best Picture Oscar winner is included below. So, let the Oscar bait begin. Remember, release dates are subject to change, but youll want to keep this lighthearted preview handy to know what to look for. Sept. 14The Predator Yet another Predator movie, this time following the efforts of soldiers and a science teacher as they fight off the titular villain after a kid welcomes it to Earth. Damn kids. A Simple Favor Bridesmaids director Paul Feig helms this crime drama in which Anna Kendrick tries to figure out why Blake Lively disappears from their small town. It begs the question: If Blake Lively disappeared from Hollywood, would anyone notice? White Boy Rick Matthew McConaughey stars as the father of a street hustler, drug kingpin and FBI informant. Nothing about that seems all right all right all right. Sept. 21The House With A Clock In Its Walls This adaptation of John Bellairs novel stars Jack Black and Cate Blanchett, and was directed by horror maestro Eli Roth. With the PG rating, it seems the only thing horrific about it is its title! Fahrenheit 11/9 Documentarian Michael Moore goes full throttle on President Trump, no doubt similar to what he did to George W. Bush in Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004). The Sisters Brothers Its a western starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Joaquin Phoenix as brothers who are assassins, but its title has me thinking about how our mothers have fathers, aunts have uncles, etc. Colette Keira Knightley often plays trailblazing women, and this is no exception. As the title character, whos perhaps best known today as the author of Gigi, she writes for her husband, then for herself, and has relationships with women in early 1900s Paris. Sept. 28Night School Kevin Harts Teddy needs his GED, and Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip) plays his teacher. If youre familiar with these two, youll likely find this idea funny; if not, never mind. Smallfoot Heres a twist: The animated tale is about a Yeti (voice of Channing Tatum) who hears there is a new, potentially dangerous creature living near his tribe: Humans. The Old Man & The Gun Robert Redfords final performance! The 81-year-old plays a bank robber who falls for Sissy Spacek while being chased by a detective (Casey Affleck).Oct. 5Venom Theyve given a Spider-Man villain, Venom, him/its own movie. This is not a Marvel Cinematic Universe release, so heres hoping its better than the last time Sony put Venom on screen in SpiderMan 3 in 2007. A Star Is Born Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga step into the lead roles of a story thats been filmed three times before. The good news is the trailers and buzz are cause for excitement!Oct. 12First Man Damien Chazelle follows up his Oscar-winning La La Land with Ryan Gosling as astronaut Neil Armstrong and the story of Apollo 11. Its the movie Im most looking forward to this awards season. Bad Times At The El Royale The El Royale is the kind of 1960s hotel you check into, but may not check out of. Jon Hamm, Cynthia Erivo, Jeff Bridges, Chris Hemsworth and Dakota Johnson are among the guests in this twisty crime thriller. Beautiful Boy Call Me By Your Names Timothy Chalamet plays a drug addict whose story is recalled through the eyes of his father, played by Steve Carell. Expect tears and pathos, and possibly Oscar noms for both. Oct. 19Halloween Its a direct sequel to the original Halloween (1978), and Jamie Lee Curtis returns with David Gordon Green directing. If nothing else Green knows that, heck, it cant be worse than any of the other Halloween sequels! Serenity Matthew McConaughey again, this time as Anne Hathaways ex. They conspire to kill her current husband. It makes you wonder if her character has any friends at all.Oct. 26Johnny English Strikes Again This is the first time Rowan Atkinsons Johnny English has struck anything since he was Reborn in 2011.Nov. 2The Nutcracker And The Four Realms Its about time somebody brought this story to the big screen during the holidays. Bohemian Rhapsody Is this the story of Freddie Mercurys real life? Or is it just fantasy? This Queen biopic as well as Rami Maleks performance as Mercury is guaranteed to rock you. Nobodys Fool Of all the movies opening this fall, this is the most likely to be immediately profitable. Why? Because Tyler Perry made it, and his films almost always turn a profit on opening weekend. Boy Erased Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman play religious parents who send their homosexual son (Lucas Hedges) to gay conversion therapy. Proof the question to be begged: Has such therapy ever worked for anyone, ever? Suspiria Yup, theyve remade Dario Argentos horror classic, and its Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino whos done it.Nov. 9The Girl In The Spiders Web Lisbeth Salander lives, just not in a story written by the late Stieg Larsson. The film, based on the book of the same name by David Lagercrantz, stars The Crowns Claire Foy as Lisbeth and Swedish actor Sverir Gudnason as Mikael Blomkvist. The Grinch Benedict Cumberbatch voices The Grinch in this new animated interpretation that no one asked for. The Front Runner Hugh Jackman doesnt sing or slash people with Wolverine claws in this story of Gary Harts ill-fated and scandalous 1988 presidential campaign. Directed by Jason Reitman (Juno). Holmes And Watson Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly play the detective duo in this Sherlock spoof. Ralph Fiennes is Moriarty. Nov. 16Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald The second Harry Potter prequel finds Newt (Eddie Redmayne) and Dumbledore (Jude Law) squaring off against Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). Widows Director Steve McQueens follow-up to Years A Slave follows four women whose dead husbands leave them in debt, so they take matters into their own hands. Viola Davis, Daniel Kaluuya, and Michelle Rodriguez star. The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs Youll be excited to learn this is a Joel and Ethan Coen (Fargo) film, but that will be dampened upon discovering that it was intended to be a Netflix anthology series and was edited down to two hours and 12 minutes.Nov. 23Ralph Breaks The Internet The Wreck-It-Ralph sequel follows Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) going into the internet (as opposed to video games). Disney princesses have a much talked about cameo. Creed II This sequel to the surprisingly stellar Creed follows Adonis (Michael B. Jordan) as he fights Ivan Dragos son, Viktor (Florian Munteanu). Remember: Ivan killed Adonis father, Apollo.Nov. 30If Beale Street Could Talk Barry Jenkins follows up his Oscarwinning Moonlight with this adaptation of the James Baldwin novel. For the record, La La Land is still better than Moonlight.Dec. 7Mary, Queen Of Scots Saoirse Ronan is Mary Stuart, and Margot Robbie is her rival Elizabeth I in this drama that chronicles their relationship. Both women were Best Actress nominees last year, and if this is as good as it looks, they may well be again this year.Dec. 14Backseat Christian Bale stars as Dick Cheney in the latest from Adam McKay (The Big Short) that also includes Amy Adams as wife Lynne Cheney, Sam Rockwell as George W. Bush and Steve Carell as Donald Rumsfeld. Dec. 19Mary Poppins Returns Twenty years later, Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) returns to find a grown Jane (Emily Mortimer) and Michael (Ben Whishaw), and a family in need of her magical help once again. Meryl Streep, Lin Manuel Miranda and Dick Van Dyke also star.Dec. 21Aquaman We know director James Wan (Furious 7) can handle the action. The reality, though, is that all DC Comics Extended Universe movies not named Wonder Woman have been disappointments, and the trailers give little reason for optimism. Bumblebee If the Transformers movies have been losing money, why does Paramount think a spinoff would be a success? Welcome To Marwen Fantasy and reality merge once again for Robert Zemeckis (Who Framed Roger Rabbit?) in this story of a man (Steve Carell) who uses photography and figurines to recover from a brutal attack. This is the third Carell movie this season!Dec. 25On The Basis Of Sex Biopic of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg starring Felicity Jones as Ruth and Armie Hammer as Ruths husband, Marty. Along with the doc RBG earlier this year, the Notorious RBG continues to create headlines in her mid-80s. MOVIESFrom page 1

GET OUT FOR A GOOD CAUSE

Shes been writing songs with other songwriters and performing online and in person. Her voice has been called a combination of Shania Twain and Bonnie Raitt.A hunter and fisher herself who grew up in the Ozarks in Missouri, shes appeared on fishing and hunting shows on TV and performed on the NASCAR circuit.She posts her Kitchen Concert series online on Youtube and Facebook, performing acoustic covers of current country and pop songs, yes, performing in the kitchen. Shes accompanied by Steve Mitchell, whom she also co-writes songs with. Her parody of Meghan Trainors All About That Bass, which Ms. Moriondo turned into a song about the fish (Its all about that bass/No minnows) went viral and received over 12 million hits. It was a door-opener for me, she says. Shes recorded one album, the eponymously named Liz Moriondao, and is just wrapping up another one with Disney music producer Johnny Dibb. She may call that one Liz Moriondo as well, she says, joking that she could have a series of self-named records like Led Zeppelin I, II, III Her name doesnt sound like a typical country singers name, she realizes. Ms. Moriondo will be one of more than 65 songwriters performing at the Fifth Annual Island Hopper Songwriter Fest, held Sept. 21-30. Shell perform at three different venues on Fort Myers Beach: from 7-8 p.m. Sept. 28 at Mantazas on the Bay; and from 2:30-3:30 p.m. at the Lighthouse Tiki Bar & Grill and from 7:15-8:15 p.m. at Nervous Nellies, both on Sept. 29. Island Hoppers presented by The Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel, iHeart Media, Cat Country 107.1 BMI and Hertz. The annual festival is an opportunity for people to hear famous songs performed by the people who wrote them and to hear the stories behind the songs, all in casual, intimate settings. Over its 10 days, the event hops from Captiva Island to downtown Fort Myers to Fort Myers Beach. Concerts are held at multiple venues in each location. Most are free. However, tickets for headliner Midland, which will perform from 5-7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 30 at the Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina on Fort Myers Beach, are $35. (The trio just won the New Vocal Duo or Group Award at the Country Music Awards this spring and received a Grammy nomination for their No. 1 single Drinkin Problem.) Ms. Moriondo is familiar with the area, she says, explaining that her family has a place on Fort Myers Beach that shes been visiting since she was 20. Like all the other Island Hopper performers, shell tell stories about her songs. All the songs Ive written are either something thats happened to me firsthand, or a friend, or a family member, she says. Theyre initially based on a true story, but then some details are fictionalized, for the sake of the song. Sometimes a song will be inspired by conversation. One time she sat down to write songs with two friends, and they were just chatting before they got started. I asked Trevor how his love life was going, and he took a big breath and he said, I am never going back to Indianapolis. And I said, Can we write that? she recalls. And so the song Indianapolis was created. We hadnt even thrown out melody ideas or hooks, she says. A lot of people think its about me having dated someone from there. But it was about him and his ex-girlfriend. Her song Throw Ya Back was created because she wanted to write about fishing, because she loves to hunt and fish. I have dated a lot of fish Ive had to throw back, says Ms. Moriondo. She just got married in May. He was a keeper! she says. All the other fish, Ive had to throw back. I could pull up from all those experiences Ive had. She was also intrigued with the double meaning of throw it back. Like with a drink, she explains. Like drinking beer. It has a double meaning, like the Jason Aldean song, Drowns the Whiskey, with its chorus, Whiskeys supposed to drown the memory/Ive gone from one to one too many/And the thing that really gets me/Is how your memory drowns the whiskey. Its similar to what I wrote, she says. Shes been writing poems since she was 8. The first time she put words to music was in eighth grade. She co-wrote it with one of her best friends, Cole Higginbotham. It was called Remember. We thought wed written this emotional masterpiece, but (listening to it now), its kind of silly. Were so deeply affected by everything at that age! A lot of times now, while writing a song, she feels that shes just a vessel for the muse. The awesome ones are the ones that just come out of my mouth and werent necessarily extremely difficult hard sessions where we sat down and just ground it out, she says. But you have to write the bad songs too. The really good ones have been whenever I felt Ive been inspired, and I always believe that the song is out there, just waiting for the right person to deliver it through. But there are discouraging days where she feels, Im never going to be able to do this again. But, she says, you stick with it and finish it, because youre practicing your craft. She compares it to her basketball days. When you go out and shoot, sometimes you cant make a basket. But you have to go out there and just shoot. You might have an off day. You play an off game, but the next game you might score 35 points. Have faith in what youre capable of, she says. You have some days where you feel nothing has gone right, no matter how hard you tried, and maybe the next day everything goes right. And you get a winning lottery ticket. Or better yet, a hit song.

The same can be said for Lets Go to the Movies, a sweeping musical revue of songs from movies playing at the Broadway Palm through Sept. 29. It is, at times, schmaltzy, cute, entertaining, predictable and surprising. Sometimes it feels as if it belongs in the Catskills, particularly when the special guests make appearances an actor pretending to be Sean Connery, Forest Gump, Doc from the Back to the Future series, all played by Chris Duir. Kira Galindo and Sarah Cammarata impersonate, respectively, Barbra Streisand and Judy Garland singing the Get Happy/Happy Days Are Here Again medley. And thats just in the first half. The revue was created, written, directed and choreographed by Victor Legarrata, who doesnt perform in this production but appears on screen briefly, introducing his show. The show opens with all six performers dressed as movie ushers, brandishing flashlights and singing Just Go to the Movies. They pull back a backdrop of Graumans Chinese Theater to reveal the band. The first half is devoted to classic Hollywood, so we get songs such as The Trolley Song from Meet Me in St. Louis, Sisters from White Christmas and Good Mornin, Make Em Laugh and Singin in the Rain from, of course, Singin in the Rain. But even when there are serious songs, Mr. Legarrata is ever ready to tickle your funny bone and nudge you in the ribs. Triplets, from The Band Wagon, has Chris Trimboli, Ms. Cammarata and Mr. Duir in white baby bonnets and gowns, seated in oversized highchairs, feet dangling. It follows How Could You Believe Me When I Said I Love You When You Know Ive Been a Liar All My Life, sung by Mr. Duir and Erica Clare. The first solo is Chris Trimboli singing A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody, proving that Mr. Legarrata knows his audience. Those who brought children to the show, hoping for more Disney fare, have to wait until the second half. But even then, this show seems more geared toward people of a certain age who remember seeing these movies on the silver screen when they were first released. Neither the songs, nor whos singing what, are listed in the playbill. There also isnt any explanation of how or why these particular songs were chosen. I kept expecting to hear something from West Side Story, South Pacific, Fiddler on the Roof or even Hair, movies all, as well as theater. But none were included. But he did make some unexpected choices, which delighted me. One was the entire cast performing Rock Island, the spoken-word piece set on a train that opens The Music Man. Ive never seen this done in a musical revue, and never a rendition that includes women, too. The special guests werent that funny to me, especially a series of duets that included Yoda and Chewbacca from Star Wars and Jason from Friday the 13th paired with Freddy Kruger. But some twists on some wellknown songs in the second half had me laughing: a rendition of Cell Block Tango from Chicago with the three men dressed up as women; Mr. Trimboli dressed as a Mother Superior singing Climb Evry Mountain. And though its been done before, I loved seeing Mr. Duir as a 50-something Annie, jaded, chain smoking, and thoroughly tired of singing that old chestnut, Tomorrow. It made me forgive him all his prior impersonations. But Mr. Legarrata couldnt leave well enough alone and midway through cheapens the joke by sending out another singer pretending to be Sandy. It wouldve been a stronger piece if hed just let Mr. Duir bitterly spit out the lyrics alone on stage. Some serious renditions of songs stole the night: Chasdan Ross Mikes velvety tones on Your Song (from Moulin Rouge!) and Accustomed to Her Face (from My Fair Lady) and Ms. Galindos interpretation of My Heart Will Go On (from Titanic) which, to me, surpassed the original. The latter has always struck me as histrionic, but Ms. Galindos rendering was genuine. Both were moving, show-stopping moments in which the singers were allowed to let loose and simply sing a song from their heart. Lets Go the Movies incorporates scenes from various movies; a brave thing to do, as people cannot help but compare what theyre hearing onstage to the original versions on screen. The show is a mixed bag, with jokes that fall flat and moments of brilliance. To paraphrase Forest Gump, its like a box of chocolates: you never know what youre going to get.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) It might be difficult for the Aquarian who is used to giving advice to take counsel when offered. But its a good idea to listen to what trusted friends feel you should know. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Things might be a little unsettled as you move through a period of reassessment. But once you get your priorities sorted out, you should be ready to tackle an important decision. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The changing season brings new experiences as well as challenges for the ever-adventurous Aries. Your social life expands, as do the opportunities at your workplace. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That recent period of uncertainty has passed. You now can now feel more confident about making decisions, especially those that relate to an important personal relationship. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you might be faced with a number of tasks on your to-do list, try to take time out to enjoy the arts. Music, especially, can be soothing to the sensitive soul of a Gemini. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A disagreement with a colleague or friend is best resolved with open and frank discussion. Trying to force the other party to see things your way is bound to backfire. LEO (July 23 to August 22) That Leonine pride might be ruffled by a colleagues challenge to one of your pet ideas. But stop growling and listen. You could learn something that will work to your advantage.

A significant part of the skill in bridge consists of keeping your cool when the unexpected strikes, and then calmly doing the best you can under the circumstances. Take the present case where South discovered early in the play that all five missing trumps were banked against him. When dummy first appeared, it seemed his only possible losers were a spade, a heart and a diamond. But when declarer ruffed the club lead and played the ace of trumps, East did not follow suit, and it now seemed South would have to lose two trump tricks. But faint heart neer won fair lady, and South did not promptly abandon all hope. Instead, he focused all his efforts on finding a solution to his predicament. He knew that his chances of winning a diamond finesse were very poor on the bidding, so he decided to try to eliminate one of his trump losers. Accordingly, at trick three he led a heart to dummys jack. East won with the ace and returned a heart to the queen. Declarer then ruffed a club, played a heart to the king and ruffed another club. Next came a diamond to the ace, deliberately rejecting the finesse, followed by another diamond to Easts king. At this point, South was down to only the K-J-10-8 of spades, while Wests last four cards were the Q-9-7-6. When East now led a club, declarer trumped with the ten. West realized hed be finished if he overruffed, so he chose instead to underruff with the six. South countered by next leading the eight of spades. West won with the nine, but then had to lead from the Q-7 into declarers K-J, and the contract was home.

FILM CAPSULES BY DAN HUDAKThe Little Stranger (Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Will Poulter) In the 1948 English countryside, strange things start to happen after a doctor (Gleeson) is called to a home in which his mother used to work as a maid. It has an appropriately creepy setting, yet it all strikes as hollow and unsatisfying, a failure of execution after the proper mood is established. Rated R.Papillon (Charlie Hunnam, Rami Malek, Eve Hewson) A man (Hunnam) imprisoned for a crime he didnt commit protects, and plans an escape with, a weakling counterfeiter (Malek). Poorly structured and lacking logic, its a remake of the 1973 classic that shouldnt have been remade. Rated R.Alpha (Kodi Smit-McPhee, Natassia Malthe, Leonor Varela) Believed dead by his tribe while on a hunting expedition, teenage Keda (Smit-McPhee) forms a symbiotic bond with a wolf dog. The exposition drags, and though there are some impressive visual sequences, the story is never engaging enough to overcome the sluggish start. Rated PG-13. BlacKkKlansman (John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace) In the early 0s, an African-American police officer (Washington, Denzels son) in Colorado Springs infiltrates the Klu Klux Klan with the help of his white Jewish colleague (Driver). Director Spike Lees film is a bit long at 135 minutes, but its also nicely acted and well told. Rated R.Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell, Bronte Carmichael) An adult Christopher Robin (McGregor) tries to keep his job, and his family together, when his old friend Winnie the Pooh (voice of Lee Cummings) finds him in London in need of help. The visual effects are impressive, but the story isnt really for kids or adults and its pretty dull. Rated PG.Generation Wealth (Limo Bob, Tiffany Masters, Florian Homm) Documentarian Lauren Greenfield examines societys obsession with wealth, image and material possessions in this cautionary doc that raises more questions than it can answer. Still, its an intriguing watch for its naked honesty, especially from those who greatly desired wealth, had it, lost it and now understand it didnt make them happy. Rated R.Mission: Impossible Fallout (Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson) Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his team botch a mission and then have to save the world to make up for their mistake. The action is once again top notch, and the story has more twists than you expect. This is one of the best action franchises in movies today. Rated PG-13.

As Potters health began to decline, the Miller Family purchased the restaurant in 1992.Coming from the north, Mr and Mrs Miller or, Poppa Bob and Miss Patti as they are now a ectionately known as, had to overcome the fact that the locals saw them as Damn Yankees. Not an easy task, but one that would ultimately make them trusted family friends. e Millers went on to continue the legendary, Old Florida dining experiences that attracted tourists from across the globe. Commonly referred to as Floridas Last Frontier, Everglades City was a trip back in time, a city built of hard work in the hot sun from burly crabbers and salty sea captains some of whom su ered from the smugglers blues. e Oyster House was where everyone, locals and visitors, came to eat, drink and be merry.

SOCIETYAvows Lunch, Laughter and Learn with Mark BelandLove & Let Laugh: the Healing Benefits of Laughter Therapy was a first in Avows ongoing Lunch & Learn educational series, open to all health care professionals. According to Mark Beland, Avows community liaison and recently certified Laughter Leader, the broader the spectrum of providers the more dynamic the response. The 70 participants who attended nurses, social workers, ministers, activity directors and administratorsacknowledged the emerging acceptance of laughter as an important element in good health. CEUs were also offered. Laughter Therapy is not about being a comedian, Mr. Beland said. The idea is to engage everyones imagination by acting out scenarios that are kind of silly. As you begin to participate and pretend, you cant resist laughing.

I caught wind there were new French owners, Rmy and Ophelie, who just moved here, so I felt certain of authenticity. I proved right. Parking was easy on the bottom foor of the parking garage with restaurant adjacent to it, without any real signs on the street, though. The special of the day was a Norwegian Baguette, consisting of a just made French baguette with soft smoked salmon, sweet cherry tomatoes, sour cream and avacados. As expected, what made it most delicious was the open-faced baguette, freshly made daily down the street at Aux Dlices Artisan Bakery and Cafe by the renowened and top SWFL French chef Andre Gratesol. The simple presentation by a busy owner Chef Rmy offered the dish with a hearty offering of locally grown greens topped with carrots and thousand island dressing, which was satisfyingly pleasant and filling, although not too heavy. It was served quickly and devoured almost as fast. In a wordmagnifique. The Dessert: The options were plenty and, while you can't go wrong with any pastry or croissant there, I found the strawberry cake particularly delicious. Hearty as if a buttery pound cake, still delectable with strawberries baked in and a berry basil drizzle with a cup of espresso made it the perfect finish to a lunch far from the American fare were used to here.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 13-19, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C23 CUISINE REVIEWCote DAzurs new chef/owner gives food solid new approachWhen it comes to French cuisine, Neapolitans are downright spoiled. What other city of this size that can boast 14 restaurants dedicated to the ambitious, exacting style of cooking found in French restaurants? Menus and style differ in fact, some are more breakfast and lunch cafes than all-out restaurants but they are similar in their love of wines, cream sauces and fresh, top-drawer ingredients married in combinations that form dishes full of satisfying textures and flavor. That said, Ive visited Cote DAzur several times over the years and, until my most recent visit, I could not understand what all the fuss was about. When I had a yearning for French, I would generally continue south to other establishments at which Ive had consistently better meals. In June 2017, chef James Waller and his wife, Darlene, took over the place. They are from California, where Mr. Waller made a name for himself in culinary circles, particularly when it came to sustainable seafood and local products. He initially stated he wasnt going to change Cote DAzur as it was popular the way it was, but now that hes gotten comfortable, it appears that he has, at least in some subtle ways. The dining room feels the same long and narrow, with a row of tables on each side under cheery yellow awnings and a third down the middle, making for a cozy ambience, particularly when full. Colorful cans of olive oil still stand on each table along with a ceramic dish that holds a pool of oil well seasoned with herbs and spices just right for dipping the crusty French bread thats delivered shortly after customers arrive. This isnt an inexpensive place to dine, but Mr. Waller is offering a special summer three-course menu that features a choice of three appetizers, three entrees and chocolate mousse for dessert along with glasses of wine with the appetizer and entre. Its $40 plus $8 for the wine. Im not sure how long the summer menu is available, but the regular menus broader choices drew our attention on this night. The wine list is varied and offers some interesting choices, both French and otherwise. I am, of course, on the company dime, so I passed up the Bordeaux and headed to a more moderately priced pinot noir by Siduri. This 2013 Santa Rita Hills red has lots of fruit and a touch of violets. It was delicious on its own and paired particularly well with a filet mignon. Our server was gracious from the start of the meal to the end. Granted, it is September and the place wasnt overflowing with business, but it got busy as the evening wore on and we never felt rushed or forgotten. He kept our wine and water glasses full, checked on us regularly to ensure all was satisfactory, delivering and clearing plates at the appropriate times. The menu is relatively small, with nine appetizers and a similar number of entrees available. There are no soups, but there are escargots, mussels, foie gras, roasted octopus and three salads, an artichoke and a crab starter from which to choose. (The summer menu did have a wild mushroom bisque as one of the three choices.) The roasted marinated artichoke hearts appetizer ($12) consisted of four plump hearts topped with shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano and served with tomato pesto, basil pesto, olive tapenade and micro greens. The artichokes dominated this dish and were suitably tender and well-seasoned with the pestos and cheese. The jumbo lump crabmeat ($18) began with a mound of shredded crab atop piquillo peppers and wakame, with a zesty wasabi lime and ginger emulsion and a touch of caviar. This dish possessed the salty tang of the sea from the crab, the crunch of the seaweed, and a touch of sweetness from the peppers while the wasabi added a little bite. Although this seemed more an Asian preparation than a French one, I recall a similar dish on the menu from a previous trip but thought this version had a crisper and more satisfying execution. Entrees came from land and sea Maine lobster ($44) roasted and removed from the shell, then artfully arranged in a champagne truffle sauce with porcini mushrooms, herbs and caviar. This was a lovely and delicious dish. My only quibble is that it could have used some vegetables on the side. An 8-ounce Black Angus center cut filet mignon was served with flamb cognac, three peppercorn sauce, haricots verts and Yukon gold mashed potatoes. The steak was tender, richly flavored and cooked to order. The vegetables were perfectly done as well. While this dish didnt look as attractive as the others, the steak was a high point of the meal. Desserts of profiterole ($12) with vanilla gelato and rich, dark chocolate sauce and a Basque style flan cake ($10) were delicious. The chocolate sauce on the profiterole was so good, I could have ordered a cup of that and sipped it straight up. Throughout the meal, I watched other well-dressed parties engaging in friendly discussions with the servers, enjoying wine and lively conversations. I now understand what it is about this cheerful little spot that draws in lovers of French food and culture. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com Maine lobster is roasted and removed from the shell, then topped with a champagne truffle and caviar sauce with porcini mushrooms.

A designer must understand what can be done within a space in order to enhance it. Im there every step of the way, monitoring the process very closely. Im a control freak, detail oriented and good at scheduling and working with a multitude of vendors. Q: What sets you apart from other designers? A: My background in graphic design helps me create and bring unique ideas to life. Im talking design such as 3-D art, custom fabrics and original structural elements, not just selecting items. I always challenge myself to combine graphic art with my interior design and architectural knowledge to create something special. Of course, I propose what I think is best for the space and suits my clients style and needs. Q: What does the future have in store for the interior design industry? A: I think technology is going to have a major impact both positive and negative. There are apps coming out all the time that make people think they dont need interior designers anymore. People think interior design is only about selection. What they dont know is that they dont have the knowledge of the relationship between space and objects, the knowledge of how to create a well-balanced space by combining design aspects and styles. The benefit of technology, of course, is smart home applications and the opportunities that technology presents within the home. Q: How do you make sure you create innovative solutions to maintain your success as an architect? A: Im an avid reader of interior design magazines. I also follow interior design websites, keep up with manufacturers new products and attend professional workshops. And I really, really love creating and what I do. The human brain never tires of creating something new. At least mine doesnt.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com SEPTEMBER 2018 LUXE LIVING 7SHOP TALK BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentLook up symbiosis in the dictionary and you might just stumble across a picture of Sweet Art Gallery/CDH2 at 2100-A Trade Center Way, west of Airport-Pulling and north of Pine Ridge roads. Last year, gallery owner Dede Sweet and Daniel Lubner of Clive Daniel Home joined forces to create a design destination like no other. As one of the largest sources of contemporary art in Southwest Florida (with a whopping 14,000 square feet), its also home to Clive Daniel Home 2, the furniture retailers discount center that specializes in endof-run furnishings and accessories at 50 percent off manufacturers suggested retail prices. Fine art galleries need a lot of wall space, while furniture stores need a lot of floor space. Together they can show off their respective wares in an atmosphere that highlights both to their best advantage. Its a win-win for customers. Ms. Sweet found her niche when she opened her gallery in 2005, specializing in abstracts, expressionism, contemporary realism, and sculptures. It was just the right time, as design in Southwest Florida was beginning to shift away from the heavy Italian influence of the times. It surprised me how many people were interested in getting a new look once the area de-Tuscanized, says Ms. Sweet. Of course, her instincts were right. And area residents continue to desire and appreciate the works of artists such as Sharon Erbe, Clemente Mimun, Mary Anne Flynn Flouse, Al Razza, Brenda Belfield and others who create powerful imagery through their mediums. There are a lot of fabulous artists out there, and many of them are right in Naples, Ms. Sweet says, adding, Well take on an artist if we know we have a collector for them. Our inventory rotates, she says. Its new and its fresh and its exciting It makes my day when I can call an artist and say, Hey, I didnt just sell one I sold all three of your new paintings. Many of the works at the gallery are of the larger variety, some as big as 10-by-10 feet. Furnished room vignettes help customers make their choices. Depending on the configuration in the showroom, there can be as many as 20 rooms with 8-, 9-, 10and 12-foot ceilings where customers can experiment with particular pieces of art they might want to take home. And there are more than 300 paintings on display at any time, with many hanging in a gallery hallway as a group. Theres also a framing department. As for the furnishings of CDH2, the beauty of the space is that this is a one-stop shop that allows you to select the pieces you love and walk out of the store with them at that moment. Its a godsend for homeowners and designers alike who are in need of items immediately, perhaps to finish a project or replace something that doesnt work. If you see it at the gallery, you can have it right then. It is really beautiful furniture at a really good price, says Tania Miller, who manages the CDH side of things. What we really love is the set-up as vignettes. Its beautifully done. You dont have lines of recliners or sofas in row after row ... You can see what it really would look like in your house. Selection changes daily, so its always worth stopping in to see whats new. Customers also love the fact that there are no commissioned salespeople, so the atmosphere is relaxed and upbeat. Whether you are shopping for linen napkins, some decorative candles or one statement piece of art, you dont feel any pressure. In fact, during season the spot is a host gallery for Art Alive, which takes place the first Wednesday evening of every month NovemberApril. The gallery can see anywhere from 300-400 people on those nights. Regular store hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday and, in season, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

10 LUXE LIVING SEPTEMBER 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY COVER STORYLORI HAMILTON / COURTESY PHOTOSTop: The living area of this sixth-floor condo is comfortable and welcoming yet maintains an overall air of sophistication. Lana Knapp of Collins & DuPont Design Group kept conversation areas intimate as to balance the wide Gulf of Mexico views. Above: The bedrooms reflect Old World simplicity without sacrificing style. Feminine details subtly keep the retreat inviting and relaxing. BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentOne of the nice things about house hunting in Naples is that when you finally decide to buy a property, you have an amazing variety of options. Another nice thing is that we have a lot of aging condos in need of rehabilitation, which can often make a fabulous location an affordable option. This 3,200-square-foot, three-bedroom, 3-bath condo overlooking the Gulf of Mexico was neither aging nor in need of updating, however. Just three years old and never lived in, it was finished in what is often referred to as decorator ready. Thats a euphemism for you probably dont want to live like this. And thats certainly how the new owner felt. It had concrete floors, and although the kitchen and bathrooms were intact, it had a very unfinished look, says Lana Knapp, senior designer at Collins & DuPont Design Group, who turned the space into a showplace that says style and elegance with a decidedly European accent. In pulling a Henry Higgins to polish the rough stone into a proper manse, Ms. Knapp left no corner untouched. This was really a complete rip-out and redo because they had used buildergrade lighting, builder-grade drywall, plain rocker switches she says. I put in a new Lutron system for the client, put in all new lighting and new plumbing. The master bathroom got a whole new layout. Prior to beginning the work, Ms. Knapp visited the homeowners property in Washington, D.C., in order to get a sense of her style and taste. The homeowner wanted a transitional look but with European flair. That meant creating beautiful details, many of which feel quite modern, that would work with the spaces more traditional backbone. One of the homes most unique features is a glass-encased lounge. Thats an inside room, says Ms. Knapp. There are no windows. So it EUROPEAN eleganceWITH A TRANSITIONAL FLAIR

PAGE 75

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com SEPTEMBER 2018 LUXE LIVING 11was very important to get light in. A lot of light comes through the unit, and I needed it to travel to that room. Entry to the lounge is via a sliding glass barn door-style door. Tiered ceiling details allow for soft ambient lighting, while backlighting comes from copper valances that were water-jet cut into a lace pattern. That copper continues on a structural column, transforming a drainpipe into a distinctive design statement. We made it a positive rather than a negative, Ms. Knapp says about the pipe that could not be removed. Originally intended to serve as a smoking room for the homeowners son, who enjoys a nice cigar with a glass of wine after dinner when he comes to visit, the lounge turned out so lovely that hes been relegated to the lanai for those smokes. The great room feels particularly traditional and is perfect for daily afternoon tea as well as social gatherings. Its a very intimate space, Ms. Knapp says. And the view is incredible. The more formal sitting area features a curved couch and allows for even more intimacy. As a whole, the space has a very traditional feel but with significant 21st century underpinnings throughout. The master bathroom is a perfect example. A traditional vanity is floating and underlit, while a bench with acrylic legs lends a modern touch. The artwork on the wall is a contemporary piece with shades of amethyst, gold, silver and charcoal. Throughout the home it is obvious that the owner prefers curves over straight lines. Its safe to say its feminine and suits her to a T. Ceiling details throughout are curved and designed to best enhance the 10-foot height. Perhaps theres no better COVER STORY Above: The glass-walled lounge has no windows but capitalizes on the abundant light that fills the rest of the main living area. Acrylic furnishings and custom lighting help maintain the feeling of openness. Below: The dining rooms reverse coffered ceiling adds a bit of whimsical elegance.

Walnut, white French oak and brushed stainless steel fleur-de-lis insets were painstakingly cut into a beautiful pattern in Italy and brought here as the foundation for a one-of-a-kind foyer. In keeping with the stainless steel insets, the grass cloth wall covering has a hint of silver thread running through it. That floor was the inspiration for the rest of the home, Ms. Knapp says. The rest just fell into place It has European flair for sure. The homeowner loves the quality. She loves the curved lines. And she insists, as she should, on quality everywhere. Its definitely one of a kind.Decorator ready? More like designerand-owner magic. Collins & DuPont Design Group 296 14th Ave. S 470-0245; www.collins-dupont.com
