Our pets inspire loyalty and pride even when the rest of the world doesnt understand why. This week, Florida Weekly celebrates your pets. For several weeks readers have sent in photos of their animals at their finest. Our staff chose the three on this cover as winners of our contest, but as youll see from the photos inside this issue, the task of selecting the finalists among the hundreds of entries we received was a difficult and ultimately subjective process. All the entries are posted on the Florida Weekly Facebook page. Each one embodies the spirit and pure love that animals offer so willingly. This is our celebration, our cheer if you will, to some of Southwest Floridas finest mascots. SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________ Niki and Chelsea / Mary Sargent Curtis Niki and Chelsea / Mary Sargent Curtis Skye / Cynthia Nettelhorst Skye / Cynthia Nettelhorst Meeko / Mary McCown Meeko / Mary McCown What do the founder of a marijuana business training school, the CEO of an agriculture technology company, and a guy who works processing credit card payments have in common? Each is preparing to play a role in the legal marijuana industry in Florida, even though the drug has yet to be broadly legalized here in any form. That could happen in November if at least 60 percent of voters say yes to Amendment 2, which would make weed legal for a wide range of health problems. The debate over Amendment 2 is just beginning in earnest. Meanwhile, would-be pot industry business owners and employees, along with a spate of certification and seminar schools, and local and out-of-state investors, are laying the groundwork for what many of them described as an eventuality: that pot will be legal to a sizeable percent of Floridas population sooner or later.

These are men or (nowadays) women who can shoot the eye out of a grasshopper at 50 feet or run down your average marathoner backwards, or call in an airstrike so fast you couldnt say F-18 three times without tripping over your tongue before something nearby would blow up. I saw one again just the other day in an online photo of Defense Secretary John Kerry, the man-who-could-havebeen president, standing on a tarmac in the Middle East or somewhere. Mr. Kerrys magnificent silver hair flowed like a river in waves just over his ears, and his dark-blue suit with a blackdotted turquoise tie stretched from his neck to his navel over a crisply starched white shirt, which helped provide him the flawless formality he needed to make an international argument while holding his right hand in the air like a little boy pretending to fly an airplane. And there behind him stood one of these generic bodyguards, half his age, ready to draw and shoot the first person who reached for a comb or his keys the wrong way. Weve come to accept them as part of the political and social atmosphere the same way we accept oxygen molecules as part of our breathing atmosphere inevitable, inherent and necessary. But were not getting our moneys worth. There could be some huge advantages to security details that go beyond mere protection, if we would just choose to use them. Whenever a leader can sprinkle a few bodyguards around to scowl at the crowds, for example, he or she can automatically expect others to listen, to agree, even to bow down in short, such a leader can assume an importance that may not be merited. But who cares? What we need to do is start insisting that bodyguards also carry extra suitcases for our fashion-challenged leaders (Hillary Clinton, for example); or do a little late-night fast-food shopping for our overly hungry leaders (Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, if he wins the Republican presidential nomination, for example); or pass a hip flask quietly and invisibly to the leaders who screw up (take your pick, but look to Texas for the obvious first choices men who would like to put down their machine guns on the Rio Grande and go sit permanently in the oval office). And since taxpayers are footing the bill for the elaborate training of security personnel at Quantico, Va., or wherever they go and for their very expensive equipment, along with their clothes, their travel, their housing and their everything else I dont see why those men and women couldnt be asked to do a few other things, too. Babysit, for example. Or ferry the kids to school. Or help old ladies cross the street. Or pick up trash in the park or on the side of the road. Or help fix potholes with a shovel and some hot asphalt on the streets of our nations capital. And why should this just have to be federal leaders? I dont think weve taken the concept of personal security quite far enough in the ranks of our state, regional and local regional leaders, either. By comparison, about 15 years ago or less, local and regional government officials took a page from the strategy manuals of former presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan, and from some state leaders who had long employed middlemen, and began hiring and deploying spokesmen, and spokeswomen. Soon, not only state government but county and city governments were paying the sometimes significant salaries of men or women whose only job was to stand as a barrier between elected officials and the public. Cops, department heads of waste management or parks and recreation or finances all of them. Then banks and hospitals and nonprofits and car dealers and real estate agencies and hamburger joints and bait shops and people who sold vegetables from their trucks on the side of the highways they all started hiring middlemen, too. And whenever you wanted to speak to an actual person in one of these organizations, you couldnt. Im sorry, but youll have to speak to the public information officer first. Were not allowed to talk to the press or public without permission. Im sure there are people today who cant talk to their spouses without going through a PIO, too. It was incredibly effective, reducing public access by about 65 percent across the board, in my estimation, and in some government offices by 100 percent. So why not apply this principal with security people, too? Attach them to county commissioners, lets say. To the mayor, or the people sitting on the city council. Youd reduce your unemployment rate by half. Youd boost the economy by 5 or 10 percent simply by providing weapons and equipment to all these people. Youd lend a level of importance to your local officials they have only dreamed about in the past. And all of us could benefit from a brave new much-more-secure world. I think. o a p k o roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Obamas recent game in a Denver bar with Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper was bright and cheery, as one would expect of a president who didnt have any depressing visits to frightened ranchers, overwhelmed border agents or desperate migrants on his future itinerary.The first rule in a crisis for any executive is put on his windbreaker and boots and get out on the ground. President George W. Bush didnt do it soon enough after Hurricane Katrina and, politically, could never make up for it, no matter how many times he visited New Orleans. Obamas bizarre resistance to visiting the border on his fundraising swing out West fueled talk of the influx as Obamas Katrina moment. The Katrina analogy is over the top because the border influx isnt a deadly catastrophe swallowing an American city. It also is too generous because Bush didnt do anything to bring on Hurricane Katrina, whereas Obamas policies are responsible for the influx of immigrants. It is, in the argot of his administration, a man-caused disaster. According to the Los Angeles Times, the number of immigrants younger than 18 who were deported or turned away from ports of entry declined from 8,143 in 2008 to 1,669 last year. There were 95 minors deported from the entire interior of the country last year. At the same time, the number of unaccompanied alien children arriving from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras exploded from less than 4,000 several years ago to 40,000 since last October. The White House brushes off criticism that Obama is avoiding the border as mere optics, in contrast to its highly substantive focus. But it is still not taking the crisis seriously. The nearly $4 billion the president is requesting is not fundamentally about enforcement that will reverse and end the tide, but about managing the influx. A devastating critique by the Center for Immigration Studies notes that about half of the money goes to the Department of Health and Human Services for acquisition, construction, improvement, repair, operation and maintenance of real property and facilities. The enforcement portion of the request, according to CIS, is not truly geared toward removal, but instead to recouping costs for temporary detention and subsequent transporting of aliens. The administrations reaction to the crisis is just another in a long series of acts of bad faith on immigration. It is asking Congress for more money for its priorities at the same time the president is promising, in effect, to suspend yet more immigration laws in response to the failure of comprehensive immigration reform. Republicans in Congress should crumple up the presidents border request in a ball and start over, with an emphasis on holding migrants near the border and working through their cases quickly to address the short-term crisis, and provisions for interior enforcement to address illegal immigration more broadly. Of course, even if such a bill were to pass and to be signed into law, thatd be no guarantee that the president of the United States would enforce it. That speaks to an entirely different mancaused disaster. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. GUEST OPINIONManatee review should consider all the facts BY KATIE TRIPP Save the Manatee ClubIn response to a lawsuit by the Pacific Legal Foundation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has decided downlisting manatees from endangered to threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act may be warranted, and the agency is embarking on a 5-year status review as part of the process. Let me be very clear about the seriousness of the situation: from 2010-2013, 2,441 manatees died in Florida waters, which is 48 percent of the highest minimum population ever recorded (5,077 in 2010), but wed have to wait until after 2015 to be able to include these data. However, ignoring this information would also constitute a substantial and unacceptable bias. Reviews are important, but when theyre going to be tied to a decision that could alter the fate of a species, they need to contain the best and most updated data and information. Unfortunately for manatees, the data from the winters of 2010-2013 including record mortality for the species, the worst ever recorded red tide that resulted in manatees being committed to mass graves in Southwest Florida, and a new, mysterious cause of death that has not yet even been labeled in the Indian River Lagoon wont be in the mix because the most recent two years of data are left out of the models to avoid bias. A tool that is used during the review process is the Core Biological Model. In May 2013, the Manatee Forum, a group of 22 stakeholder organizations, received an update on this model as it related to the then-anticipated FWS status review. An appropriate sentiment on models was best stated by George Box, a British mathematician who said all models are wrong, but some are useful. The devil is in the details with a model, and some of the details related to the CBM are not in the manatees favor. First, the group was told that the most current data only went through 2012 for the Atlantic and Upper St. Johns River, 2010-2011 for Northwest Florida, and only through 2009-2010 for Southwest Florida. Data for survival rates only represent the years 2006-2008. We were also told that previous predictions for red tide estimated severe events in 15 percent of years, but the new model would dial that up to 35-45 percent of years, based on expert opinion. Possible changes in red tide frequency were incorporated into the model, but not changes in magnitude an important limitation. (And lets not ignore the significance of the fact that a panel of experts thinks we can expect the frequency of severe red tides to more than double.) The current model is also not able to consider changes in the frequency of cold weather events, although such changes are a likely component of climate change and would be a significant and repeat source of manatee deaths. In general, the model doesnt do much to consider changes to the natural system, although such changes are a stark reality for manatees and their habitat. The presenters discussed the fact that increases in population were projected for the Upper St. Johns River and Northwest region where manatees use natural springs in the winter. Yes, the springs are there, but there was no consideration of the fact that manatees primarily use protected springs, which are limited in number, and the size and capacity of these springs are being threatened by continually increasing human demands on the aquifer. Manatee population growth in the Atlantic and Southwest, they said, has been driven by power plant capacity, which is expected to decline in about 20 years, and likely be eliminated altogether at some later date. Therefore, the agencies anticipate a significant shift in distribution away from coastal areas to springs. There are two problems with this assumption: 1) hundreds of manatees could stay put and freeze to death waiting for warm water at old power plant sites, and 2) as previously mentioned, the health of our springs is far from secure. In the model, watercraft mortality is predicted to continue at its current level, which is an unlikely scenario given the expected growth in Floridas population in the years ahead, and the tendency to concentrate human population on our coasts. The very next presentation at the meeting discussed the then-ongoing red tide event. The presenter explained that it was being called a repeat event, not an Unusual Mortality Event, because red tide isnt unusual anymore its routine. This particular red tide set a new record for the agency, yielding 16 manatee carcasses in one day. (Remember how the model cant consider the magnitude of red tide events? This is why that matters.) As FWS embarks on its manatee status review, we must ensure that the agency considers all the facts and all of the potential threats to manatees and their habitat moving forward, not just what can be plugged into a model. It is going to take years to understand the implications of the unprecedented record mass mortality events of 2010-2013 on Floridas manatee population, with regard to changes in reproduction, growth rate, and food abundance and distribution in the Indian River Lagoon. These vitally important answers will come in time, but they wont come by the time FWS will likely make an announcement on downlisting manatees nor will they be reflected in the Core Biological Model. Erring on the side of caution and acknowledging uncertainty is the prudent course for the agency, but time will tell whether integrity in our Fish and Wildlife Service is the most endangered species of all. Katie Tripp has been Save the Manatee Clubs director of science and conservation since May 2008. She received her Ph.D. in veterinary medical sciences from the University of Florida where she conducted research on manatee physiology.

Actually, its pretty simple. I just think about my life and my surroundings until something comes to me. Take this column, for example. I recently remarried which is to say Ive joined the ranks of millions of Americans who have taken the plunge in spite of their experiences with their previous marriage(s). In musing about this the other day, I realize that Ive learned a lot these past eight months about myself, myself in a marriage and maybe even about marriage itself. Among these, three startling revelations have hit me like tender bricks: The little annoyances dont count this time around. Instead of turning into disagreements, I see them for what they are: simple differences in personalities. What we each like for breakfast, what route we choose to take from here to there, whether one likes a certain television show that the other does not who cares? And when he does something a little boyish, like make one of those burping sounds, I let it pass. To be sure, little differences can lead to tension, but only if you dwell on them. So thats my first revelation: Identify these pesky little things and then learn to ignore them. When I do that, I start seeing the little things that do matter, and this for me is a huge step forward toward long-term wedded bliss. I no longer assume I know my spouses motivations or what he is thinking. Since we first met, he has gone out of his way to do nice things for me. In the beginning, I was certain he did them because he wanted me to like him and that the instant I did, he would stop. Boy, was I wrong. He did them not because he hoped theyd win me over, but because he actually liked me and so wanted to do something nice for me. Ironically, because of that, I couldnt help but like him back. So we both won. And thats the case whenever we think of the other person first. A wise man once said marriage is 90/10, which means you always feel as though youre giving 90 percent and getting only 10 percent in return, while your spouse feels he is doing exactly the same. That might have been true in a previous relationship, but this time around I feel the complete opposite. Im getting 90 percent, and Im lucky if I can wedge my 10 percent of giving in between the many kind things he does for me. Ask him, however, and hell tell you its me whos giving the 90 percent. How about that? Thirdly, I have learned to listen to my heart. Really listen. When Im frustrated or feeling overwhelmed by the demands of life, I get away from the noise, go for a walk, sit in a quiet place and listen to what Im feeling. In the final analysis, I come back to the reality that these, too the challenges, the stresses, the differences in opinion are love. It doesnt always come out like that, but thats whats in my heart, and I need to put everything else aside and reaffirm that this is the source of all happiness. I could go on, put these three are the essentials for me and its taken me most of my life to recognize them, much less appreciate them. They are not instinctive. Nor do they come easily. Nor can they be taught. Rather, they come through maturity and experience, like so much of the sweetness I am finding in a later-life marriage. Practicing them has propelled me from a good marriage to a great marriage. I suspect they can do the same for you. Now Ill have that cup of coffee.

BR[I]GHTEN Toilet trainingEnric Girona recently donated his prototype pet commode to the town of El Vendrell, Spain, hoping to spark worldwide interest. Conscientious owners would train their dogs on the station a hole in the ground with a flush handle which is connected to the sewer system, as is the drain grid next to it (for tinkling). The platform, which appears to occupy about 20 square feet of surface, is self-cleaning (although not too clean, said Mr. Girona, because dogs are more easily lured with a lingering scent). Spain is already one of the worlds toughest on lazy owners who fail to scoop up after their pets, with fines in El Vendrell as high as the equivalent of $1,000, and in Madrid and Barcelona, $2,000. Took it too far The New York customer service company United Health Programs of America provoked a federal lawsuit in June by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission over its employee esprit-de-corps policy of requiring workers to pray to God on the job and to say I love you to their managers. According to the EEOC, the feel-good, work-harder campaign was suggested by an aunt of Uniteds owner and named for an obscure truth and compassion movement called Onionhead. After two third-graders wet their pants on May 15 at Mill Plain Elementary School in Vancouver, Wash., they blamed teachers for too-strictly enforcing their classrooms rewards system, in which good behavior earns students points redeemable for, among other prizes, restroom breaks. A teachers union investigation concluded that the girls were never denied toilet access (but the girls mothers pointed out that using restroom breaks as a reward might be confusing to 8-year-olds). The Japanese snack company Calbee recently staged a promotion around popular singer Nana Mizuki, giving away 10 backstage passes to her Aug. 3 concert in Yokohama to the purchasers of 10 lucky bags of secretly marked potato chips. Her perhaps-hugest fan, Kazuki Fukumoto, 25, was so determined to win one that by the time he was arrested for littering in May, he had bought and dumped 89 cartons of potato chip packages, weighing over 400 pounds, that were found at six locations around the cities of Kobe and Akashi. Police estimate he had spent the equivalent of about $3,000. Britains news website Metro.co.uk, combing Facebook pages, located a full photo array from prominent 23-year-old German body art enthusiast Joel Miggler, whose various piercings and implants are impressive enough, but whose centerpieces are the portholes in each cheek that expose the insides of his mouth. (With customized plugs, he can seal the portholes when soup is on the menu.) The holes are currently 36mm wide, but he was said to be actively cheek-stretching, aiming for 40mm. Mr. Miggler assures fans that his mother likes most of his modifications and that the worst aspect so far is merely that he is forced to take smaller bites when eating. (News of the Weird has reported on researchers creating portholes in cows stomachs, but still ...) Cant possibly be true Until the New York governor and legislature addressed the problem recently, it was legal in the state for narcissistic animal owners to force their dogs and cats to endure permanent, decorative tattoos and piercings. At press time, Gov. Andrew Cuomo was poised to sign legislation abolishing the tattooing. Kayla Oxenham, 23, was arrested in Port Charlotte, Fla., in June and charged with using a stick to burn brands into the skin of her two children, ages 5 and 7. Among her explanations to police: so she could identify them as being hers and because she forgot how much she loved fire. A Davenport, Iowa, jury convicted terminal-cancer patient Benton Mackenzie, 48, in July on four marijuana-growing felonies, even though his purpose was to harvest cannabis oil to treat his bloody lesions and the grapefruit-sized tumor on his buttocks. The judge ha d barred Mr. Mackenzie and his lawyer from even mentioning the illness in court because of a 2005 Iowa precedent (even though the Iowa legislature has subsequently allowed medical marijuana to treat seizures). Mr. Mackenzies wife, his 73-year-old parents, his son and a friend were also charged with assisting Mr. Mackenzies operation (though Mr. Mackenzie was almost surely the only customer). Mr. Mackenzie, who testified and was, of course, sworn to tell the whole truth, said he was flabbergasted to learn that the whole truth excludes anything about his illness. Municipal engineers in the town of Melton Mowbray, England, were called out in June to fix a lingering sewer overrun caused by, they discovered, hundreds of tennis balls that had apparently each been flushed down toilets. Said the project manager, We expect (blockages from) fats and baby wipes, but.... Unclear on the concept A 60-year-old man with a blood clot has recovered, but no thanks to the driver for the South Western Ambulance Service who was ferrying him on a long trip to the emergency room of Derriford Hospital in Plymouth, England, on April 6. The patients family later reported that the driver had stopped en route to pick up two hitchhikers one a young woman in a skimpy skirt and take them to an on-the-way town. The patient, in pain with his toes starting to blacken, eventually had his blood flow restored and did not lose the leg. He reported that the two riders were friendly and wanted to chat about his condition (though he was in no mood). The American Red Cross boasts of being transparent and accountable for the way it spends donations from compassionate people moved to help those in need. However, when the public policy watchdog ProPublica asked for some details on how the Red Cross used funds donated for 2012 Hurricane Sandy victims in New York, the organization begged off, claiming that details beyond broad generalities were trade secrets that it was entitled to protect, lest its competitors copy or exploit the techniques it uses.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA18 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 24-30, 2014 Habitat for Humanity of Collier C ounty recently closed on its 1,700th home sale in partnership with a qualifying local family. The Hatch family is overjoyed to move from a sparse and small (but very expensive) apartment into a brand new Habitat home they helped to build. Habitat for Humanity helps break the generational cycle of poverty through the work of dedicated volunteers and homeowners who put in hundreds of hours building their own home and working on the homes of other deserving, hard-working families. Each Habitat family helps to build their home and then purchases it from Habitat for Humanity at cost, with a no interest loan. For more than three years, Simone Hatch has been a valued employee in guest services at the Marco Island Marriott. Raising three children as a single mom, she has emphasized that hard work pays off. As a result, all three children are outstanding students who take their family responsibilities seriously. Casey, the eldest at 15, helps to take care of her siblings while mom is at work. In addition to maintaining a 3.8 GPA, she also has a part-time job as a hostess. Nine-year-old Isabelle follows her sisters lead as a good and attentive student and also helps to take care of 7-year-old Evan, who has a congenital heart defect and has already undergone three heart surgeries. With an excellent credit report and monthly rent for her apartment exceeding $1,000, Ms. Hatch was a perfect candidate for Habitat for Humanitys no-interest mortgage. Her determination to provide every opportunity for her childrens success rounded out her qualifications for the Habitat program that extends families in poverty a hand-up, and not a handout. Ms. Hatchs enthusiasm grew as her house neared completion. Though she had invested more than the required 500 sweat-equity hours, she spent every spare minute putting on the finishing touches before moving in. Once again, she has demonstrated for her children that hard work does pay off this time in the form of a beautiful home of their own in a neighborhood where the kids can grow and thrive. Habitat for Humanity of Collier County is the largest affiliate of the international organization as well as one of the oldest, having served the local community for 36 years. For information about becoming a Habitat volunteer or applying to become a Habitat homeowner, call 775-0036 or visit www.habitatcollier.com.

LONG LASTING? Before you consider the best in restorative dentistry, and before consulting with our staff, let us answer a few of your questions: 1. Implant dentistry is preventive, as well as restorative. It is both esthetic and practical. It can improve your bite, your looks and your self-esteem. 2. Dental implants are long lasting, providing that patients follow routine schedules of dental hygiene and check-ups. 3. Each patient is comfortably sedated and relaxed for the implant procedure. Once completed, discomfort is minimal and easily managed with proper medication and follow-up care. 4. One of the inherent bene ts is that throughout treatment, patients are never without their teeth. DOCTOR G. GORDONDOCTOR C. ASHTONDOCTOR S. VLACHOS

Newly named Womens Care Naples, the office becomes HCNs 14th care facility. It is at 3339 Tamiami Trail E., in the Collier Health Department Building H. The Womens Foundation was created in 1999 to address a potential maternity care crisis in Collier County. Thanks to a partnership agreement between members of the OB/ GYN community, the Collier County Health Department and Naples Community Hospital, the foundation provided prenatal, delivery and postpartum care to women in financial need. Services were paid through Medicaid, Healthy Start or other funding sources.More recently, the Foundations financial circumstances led to discussions of turning operations over to the Healthcare Network. We have been impressed with the foundations work and dedication to their patients and community, says Mike Ellis, CEO of the network. When discussions arose regarding us taking over operations, we couldnt have found a more perfect fit with our mission of providing quality healthcare accessible to everyone. In addition, HCN welcomes five new care providers: Drs. Thomas Beckett, Chris Grevengood, Dean Hildahl, Max Kamerman and Wallace McLean; Sarah Clay, ARNP; and Jessica Loerop, PA-C. Last year, the Womens Foundation cared for 1,100 women, providing more than 8,000 prenatal visits and nearly 1,200 deliveries. According to Thomas VanPelt, former executive director of the foundation and now director of administrative operations for HCN, the move will enhance patient services with additional staffing and the ability to utilize electronic health records as well as other modern administrative technology. Established by community leaders in 1977, Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida is a private, not-for-profit organization providing primary medical and dental care for more than 36,000 adults and children at 14 medical and dental service locations in Collier County, including the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile. For more information, call Kaydee Tuff at 658-3116 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition to prenatal care and delivery, HCN provides postnatal care to mothers and babies. ELLIS VANPELT

The David Lawrence Center has r ec eived a $30,000 grant from Trinity-by-the-Cove Episcopal Church to extend the centers scholarship medication program for three more years. The center is Collier Countys only comprehensive, not-for-profit mental health and substance abuse treatment facility serving children, adults and families. Its scholarship medication program, established in 1996, provides discounted or free psychotropic medications to clients with a persistent or chronic mental illness who do not have the means to pay for the drugs on their own. Each year an increasing number of families seek treatment from one of David Lawrence Centers specialized programs. Significant numbers of these clients are indigent or low-income families, are disabled or unable to work, or are otherwise financially restricted from obtaining proper treatment. In the case of individuals suffering from chronic mental illness, the use of extremely costly, yet highly effective psychotropic drugs is crucial to their treatment and often results in a reduction of more costly inpatient and institutional treatment, or allows for shorter hospital stays. Without the assistance of the scholarship medication program, many clients would be barred from experiencing the life-changing wellness provided by these important medications due to their high costs and would not receive proper treatment, according to David Lawrence Center CEO Scott Burgess. We are very appreciative to Trinity-by-the-Cove for the unwavering, continued support of their parishioners and the leaders of their organization, Mr. Burgess says. With the help of the church, we are able to offer hope, health and healing for improved quality of life to those most in need. David Lawrence Center provides innovative, comprehensive inpatient, outpatient, residential and communitybased prevention and treatment services for the one in four local children and adults who experience mental health, emotional, psychological and substance abuse challenges. With eight locations in Collier County, the center touches the lives of more than 40,000 people each year. For more information, call 455-8500 or visit www.davidlawrencecenter. org.

Amendment 2 appears good for retail sales of pot, since it would allow doctors to recommend the plant for a broad range of ailments. Thats why it seems like false advertising to opponents such as Pastor Peter Burnett, who sees it as a wink-and-a-nod recreational legalization. He runs the Dont Let Charlotte County Go to Pot Coalition, part of the larger statewide organization that is fighting to stop No. 2. The promise of broader legalization is just what attracted Adam Bierman of The MedMen, a marijuana-consulting firm based in California. He is promoting the companys services in Florida and other states. Florida is an interesting market for us because its going potentially from zero to 100 miles per hour in a relatively short period of time, said Mr. Bierman, who adds that his company is in it for the long run. Even if No. 2 is voted down, the national trend toward medical and to a lesser extent recreational legalization is enough to convince him that Florida will eventually be one of the countrys largest marijuana markets based on its population, more than 19 million residents. Ultimate legalization (both medical and recreational) is going to be significant, in our opinion, in Florida, he said.Going to pot schoolMeanwhile, marijuana business training schools have been popping up across South Florida like exotic plants. Generally, they charge between $300 and $500 for day-long seminars and training programs of different varieties. The Institute of Medical Cannabis started in Boca Raton this summer with a focus on marijuana entrepreneurs interested in growing operations. The school substitutes different types of produce for cannabis in hands-on sessions, and draws on the knowledge and errors of other states, said co-founder Sheridan Rafer. Florida has the advantage that weve already had 22 other states legalize medicinal marijuana, said Mr. Rafer. Florida knows everybodys kind of watching what were doing right now and we really want to do things the right way. The classes, which began in June, included all kinds. Mr. Rafer described his students as a stereotypical pothead type, a school teacher, and a grandmother, for instance. Cannabis Career Institute is a California-based school that offers statespecific, all day seminars around the nation. One was held Sunday, July 20, at a Best Western hotel in Fort Myers. A few dozen people filled a room, taking notes and peppering speakers with questions. They covered basics such as applying for city and state business licenses, and why customers often prefer edibles, such as pot brownies or lollipops, to a joint. Among the attendees was Steve Thompson, who is 27. He works processing credit card payments and believes he could do the same for local marijuana dispensaries. Josie Gattuso, 30, is a hairdresser, but is interested in running a medical marijuana dispensary one day. There are a lot of people here in Florida that are hooked on a lot of pills, she said, and marijuana could be an alternative. Carlos Hermida, 30, attended because he is hoping to land a job with the Cannabis Career Institute itself. A Lee County man, Mike Ginocchi, handed out a brochure offering investment advice. His own weed fund investments in marijuana stocks was up 111 percent for the first half of 2014, he reported in the brochure. At this rate I will have made enough money to open my own dispensary or grow-op after we pass No. 2 here in Florida, he wrote. Planting seeds If No. 2 passes, Ag-Tronix CEO Sam Carns predicts exponential growth among pot growers in the next five years, once we work out the bugs and everybody works out all the regulations. His company in Immokalee, which specializes in technology-based growing products for farmers, developed an automated system to grow marijuana. Like those for tomatoes or other crops, it would be controlled in an office by computer, alerting the grower, for example, if a door is opened after hours or a pump that delivers nutrients quits working. With all the agriculture we have in Southwest Florida, there are going to be a lot of businesses currently in other forms of agriculture that are going to either experiment with it a little bit, or therell be some that just want to go full bore into it, Mr. Carns said. A Collier County man, John LeFevre, said he decided to move to Colorado to start a growing operation, get organized, and return to Florida if the law permits. Even if voters pass Amendment 2, he is concerned that state regulations will be too restrictive for his business. Last month, Florida legalized a strain of medical marijuana referred to as Charlottes Web for a relatively small number of patients. The strain does not contain enough of the chemical that delivers marijuanas distinctive high. Legislators decided only a handful of nurseries around the state will be licensed to grow it.

No, theyre not babies. Theyre bassinets in our new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Although five weeks premature (delivered early, which in this case is great) and under budget (which is even greater), the 8,700-square-foot unit looks lovely and is well equipped to care for the most innocent and vulnerable new members of our community. Parents will appreciate the comforts and will be able to stay with their newborns for as long as they choose. Meanwhile, our five fulltime (soon to be six) neonatologists and 31 neonatal nurses are on duty 24/7 for the estimated 3,200 babies born at the Birth Place each year. Our pediatric capabilities at NCH are second to none in the area. We have a full lactation support program in addition to prenatal classes offered in multiple languages. Moreover, the Birth Place is the only hospital in Collier County with full obstetrical services that include aroundthe-clock anesthesia and a comprehensive ICU. Our capacity today stands in sharp contrast to years ago, when we had to send many more newborns out of town, which was disruptive for families and not good for babies. That all started to change in 2009. since then, Dr. Jorge Perez, director of Kidz Medical Services, and his team have expanded our services to include pediatric subspecialists in cardiology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, neurology, sleep and ophthalmology. Coming soon: hematology/oncology and urology (our pediatric urologist will be the first on the west coast of Florida south of Tampa). Add to this our 18-room MacDonald Seacarium and the Robert, Mariann and Megan MacDonald Pediatric Emergency Center, which is under construction. Net/net, we have many to thank for our superior pediatric service in Collier County. As our number of deliveries and sophistication expand in coming years, we anticipate ascending to the next higher level of neonatal ICU care.

The National Institute on Aging, part of the NIH, has some tips to help mitigate some of the dangers. Hyperthermia is an abnormally high body temperature caused by a failure of the heat-regulating mechanisms in the body to deal with the heat coming from the environment. Heat stroke, heat syncope (sudden dizziness after prolonged exposure to the heat), heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat fatigue are common forms of hyperthermia. People can be at increased risk for these conditions, depending on the combination of outside temperature, their general health and individual lifestyle. Older people, particularly those with chronic medical conditions, should stay indoors, preferably with air conditioning or at least a fan and air circulation, on hot and humid days, especially when an air pollution alert is in effect. Living in housing without air conditioning, not drinking enough fluids, not understanding how to respond to the weather conditions, lack of mobility and access to transportation, overdressing and visiting overcrowded places are all lifestyle factors that can increase the risk for hyperthermia. People without air conditioners should go to places that do have air conditioning, such as senior centers, shopping malls, movie theaters and libraries. Cooling centers, which may be set up by local public health agencies, religious groups and social service organizations in many communities, are another option. The risk for hyperthermia may increase from: Age-related changes to the skin such as poor blood cir culation and inef ficient sweat glands Alcohol use Being substantially overweight or underw eight Dehydration Heart, lung and kidney diseases, as w ell as an y illness that causes general weakness or fever High blood pressure or other health c onditions that r equire changes in diet. For example, people on salt-restricted diets may be at increased risk. However, salt pills should not be used without first consulting a physician. Reduced perspiration,caused by medications such as diur etics, sedati ves, tranquilizers and certain heart and blood pressure drugs Use of multiple medications. It is important, ho w ever, to continue to take prescribed medication and discuss possible problems with a physician. Heat stroke is a life-threatening form of hyperthermia. It occurs when the body is overwhelmed by heat and is unable to control its temperature. Heat stroke occurs when someones body temperature increases significantly (above 104 degrees Fahrenheit) and shows symptoms of the following: strong rapid pulse, lack of sweating, dry flushed skin, mental status changes (like combativeness or confusion), staggering, faintness or coma. Seek immediate emergency medical attention for a person with any of these symptoms, especially an older adult. If you suspect someone is suffering from a heat-related illness: Get the person out of the heat and i n to a shady, air-conditioned or other cool place. Urge the person to lie down. If you suspect heat stroke, call 911. Apply a cold, wet cloth to the wrists, neck, armpits and / or groin. These are places where blood passes close to the surface of the skin, and the cold cloths can help cool the blood. Help the individual to bathe or spong e of f with cool water. If the person can swallow safely, of f er fluids such as water or fruit and vegetable juices, but avoid alcohol and caffeine. The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program within the Administration for Children and Families in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services helps eligible households pay for home cooling and he ating costs.

More than 5.6 million homes in the United States keep at least one of these cold-blooded creatures as pets, and their total numbers top 11.5 million, according to a 2013 survey by the American Pet Products Association.Reptiles have a number of advantages as pets. Theyre quiet, can have long life spans, require little to no exercise, usually dont need to be fed daily, and their waste is easy to remove. They even have personalities, believe it or not, and form bonds with their people. Many are active and curious, making them interesting to watch as they explore their habitat. Depending on the species, reptiles can be good choices for both children and adults.What should you think about if youre considering a reptile companion? They need more space than you might realize. Plan to provide a reptile with plenty of room to move around. Some are arboreal, meaning they like to be up high. Species that will grow to be 6 feet or more, such as iguanas and some snakes, need floor-to-ceiling enclosures. Others need aquatic habitats. For instance, an adult red-eared slider turtle may need an aquarium that holds 55 to 120 gallons or more. All species need a place to hide and a heat source to keep them warm. Other reptile-care basics include spotcleaning cages to remove waste and uneaten food. The cage must also be disinfected regularly so your reptile doesnt develop bacterial infections of the skin or digestive tract. Some reptiles carry salmonella bacteria. Its important to always wash your hands and make sure your children do, too after handling them.Reptile diet varies by species. Your reptile may eat daily fresh greens, crickets, mealworms or frozen mice that have been thawed. If youre tenderhearted, the good news is that you dont have to feed live prey. In fact, its best not to because your reptile could be injured by a live mouse or rat defending itself. A reptile may also need vitamin supplements.Good beginner reptiles for children and adults include ball pythons, bearded dragons, corn snakes, and small box turtles or tortoises. Whatever you choose, do your homework to make sure you understand and can meet the animals needs.Talk to an accredited expert before acquiring a reptile. That can be a veterinarian who specializes in exotics or a person who does reptile education for a rescue group or other organization. Every species has its own special requirements, says certified veterinary technician Johanna Hanlon, practice manager and head nurse at Ani-Care Animal Hospital in Dallastown, Pennsylv ania. There is a lot of misinformation on the Internet, so use sources linked to veterinary professionals and herpetological societies. She also recommends finding a reptile-savvy veterinarian who can provide the specialized care the animal will need, as well as knowing whether the reptile youre considering is regulated by local, state or federal laws. Also consider whether you can care for a reptile for its lifetime, which in some cases can be 30 years or more. Herpetologist Chad Griffin of CCSB Reptile Rescue and Rehab Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., says the most common reasons reptiles are surrendered to rescue groups are that a student is going to college and parents dont want to care for the animal, the reptile became larger than expected, the expense of caring for the animal became too high, or the person is moving to a place that doesnt permit exotic pets.If you arent sure if a particular reptile is right for you, talk to a rescue group or shelter about fostering, Ms. Hanlon says. They may be able to provide you with the resources you need to care for the animal without a long-term commitment. Habitat needs for certain reptiles can be larger and more expensive than new owners expect.

THE DIVA DIARIESA leisurely summer escape to the new SouthI swear, unless youre a gazillionaire, you just cant fly out of Southwest Florida in July. Believe me, Ive many a time come home from a trip to Publix after wrestling with fistfuls of heavy plastic bags full of groceries, my hair soaked with sweat, the palms of my hands still stinging from my sizzling steering wheel, frustrated, sticky, hot, and over it. I plop the bags down in the hall and head straight to my laptop, vowing that no matter what it costs, I will go somewhere, anywhere, where the weather is reasonably bearable only to discover that its going to cost nearly $1,000 round-trip to get out of the state. That spur-of-the-moment need to flee is quickly replaced by the reality of having just spent $200 on groceries and needing to stay here to eat them. Sigh. And this is why my husband, Todd, and I take a summer road trip to Tennessee every year in July. Its practical. Theres airconditioning in the car, we eat peanuts and drink water and take our time stopping along the way to visit friends, family and explore towns weve never had the chance to really see. This past week, it was The Road Trip of the Villes. We didnt mean for it to be that way, but we ended up spending our vacation in Jacksonville, Asheville and Knoxville. I would have like to have gone to New York Cityville, but these three lovely Southern towns were plenty hospitable and a mite less expensive. Our good friend Terry Tilley moved from Southwest Florida to Jacksonville less than a year ago, and I must admit, I was skeptical. Weirdly, Id never heard anything good about poor Jacksonville only that it was sprawling. In terms of acreage, its the largest city in the United States, which sounds awful for someone like me who easily gets lost within five miles of home and hearth. But when Terry gave us a tour of Jacksonville broken down into neighborhoods, it was easy to see why hed fallen in love with the place. Theres San Marco, Avondale, Five Points, and more and each area is more charming and more historic than the next. I love my state and all, but Jacksonville doesnt feel much like Florida. It makes sense that Savannah is only a 90-minute drive away. Plus, we got to see Amelia Island and St. Augustine, too, which are both just a hop, skip and a jump away. We visited another Southwest Florida expat, Brad Newton, in Asheville, N. C., where he happily walked the steep brick streets of this mountain city with us, and where we enjoyed muddled cocktails, soul food, live bands, chocolates, craft breweries, and art all over the place. Just a quick warning: If youre over 30 in Asheville, youre probably going to feel like a very old person. On a hipness level, Asheville is right up there with Portland and Austin and Seattle and such. I knew Asheville would be hip the second I saw there was an Urban Outfitters store smack dab in the middle of downtown (once an Urban Outfitters is in your city, you know your place of residence is officially cool). The other signs (and we noticed this in some Jacksonville neighborhoods as well) are the uniforms of the Millennials (generally defined as a people who reached young adulthood around the year 2000), which is full, unkempt beards and distressed vintageesque looking T-shirts on the males, and very short, scant sundresses and cowboy boots on the females. Believe me, theyre pretty by-the-book when it comes to this dress code. But, Asheville is the sort of place where, regardless of your age, you WANT to go into Urban Outfitters and buy the uniform, and then get a funky apartment with hardwood floors and no washer/dryer, and learn to play the guitar, and work in book store (yes, actual locally owned book stores still exist in these crunchy Southern towns its amazing). Finally, we made our way to Knoxville, my husbands hometown, to visit his mother and kin. Plus, to enjoy a day strolling downtown Knoxville. Todd told me that when he was growing up in the area, downtown could best be described as sketchy so, he wasnt expecting much when I dragged him there but, there it was, like a beacon attracting the young an Urban Outfitters smack dab in the middle of downtown. I told Todd that he could now tell people he was from a hip Southern town, and I could tell he was kind of proud. Knoxvilles downtown isnt quite Asheville, but if you ask me, itll get there. Between the University of Tennessee right there and the Smoky Mountains in the backyard, its got tons of potential. And like the other Villes we visited, the sweet Southern drawls, along with the manners and smiles, are all there too. My advice for relief during this long, hot summer, is if you cant afford a flight out of town, and you dont have time for a road trip, just turn your air-conditioner way down, fix yourself some cheese grits, find some Mumford and Sons on your Pandora, and punch up the Urban Outfitters website on your computer.

Take measures to protect your assets into the futureIf you have assets, then you need protection.Protection from creditors, civil suits, the IRS, even possible future claims of a spouse. Obviously, not all assets can be or are meant to be protected from creditors. Creditors typically make a secured loan on the basis that one or more assets would be collateral for the loan. Asset protection does not imply hiding an asset; even the most secreted assets have ways of being unearthed by creditors as we do live in asset traceable/discoverable society. Asset protection does involve an estate planning process that uses a variety of different types of vehicles to accomplish protection. Estate planning involves far more than just asset protection, yet often estate planning strategies can accomplish both estate and asset protection goals at the same time. The object of the protection is to make sure that an estate is protected from creditors while you are alive and possibly after you pass and your estate is inherited. The owner needs to be able to get income from the asset, take withdrawals from the asset, or, as in the case of an IRA, to eventually get both income and principal. While federal law applies to protection of some assets (e.g., retirement plans), state law also plays a role in determining the best vehicles and strategies for asset protection. Not all states treat homesteads or life insurance the same way. Asset protection extends beyond asset types and extends into strategies that make it more difficult for the creditor to get paid. For example, while offshore tax evasion is a no-no, it might be, for the mega-wealthy, holding assets offshore will make attachment of such asset by a creditor more difficult than a U.S.-held asset. (For clarification, fully declared offshore holdings are not against the law and can be beneficial for asset protection, but the income from such assets must be declared in full. The problems associated with offshore holdings has largely been from tax evasion and secret foreign accounts.) Creditors face even more challenges if there are layers of complexity surrounding the assets. (Honestly, what creditor wants to go after a Cayman company that holds an asset in Timbuktu?)The more assets, the more elaborate an estate plan. But even the average Joe fears a crazy lawsuit or a business creditor seizing personal assets to satisfy corporate liabilities. So whether you have a lot or a little, you should visit with your adviser or your lawyer. They cannot help unless you fully disclose all your assets (and potential assets) and all your existing liabilities (and potential liabilities). For instance, a leveraged business that is making money today might not be doing well in the future when creditors might eye your personal assets for satisfaction. It is generally too late to protect assets once creditors are on your tail and a judgment has been entered or about to be entered and/or a lawsuit is about to be filed. Moving assets away from a creditor before a judgment or lawsuit is viewed as fraudulent conveyance (fraudulent transfer or fraudulent conversions). It is not just last-minute transfers or conversions that a state court (e.g., Florida) can reverse, it is conveyances made within the prior four years. However, asset protection undertaken well in advance of a creditor debacle (e.g., more than four years prior) is viewed as smart asset or estate planning and not as a plan to defraud creditors. (Under federal bankruptcy law, different fraudulent conveyance laws and time periods apply yes, asset protection is complicated.)So here is a list of assets that are viewed as having special protection merits. However, as federal and state laws change and are subject to differing interpretations, readers should view the list as a starting point to investigate the specifics of their state. Homesteads: Some states such as Florida have no limit on homestead protection. But movement into a homestead to avoid creditors should not be expected to hold up as a protected asset. Insurance and Annuities: Some states provide protection of the cash value of such policies; some states provide protection but for policies that were bought in their own state and some place a cap per policy on such protection. Retirement Plans: Plans that you or your spouse intimated and funded; per a recent Serene Court decision, an inherited IRA is not protected from the beficiaroes creditors. Traditional IRA and Roth Iris have a cap on their dollar abound excluded in bankruptcy. Employer-sponsored plans, (401(k), SEP IRA, Simple IRAs, etc.) have unlined creditor protection. So keep these plans separate if you want to retain the unlimited creditor protection of employer plans. You roll an employer plan into a rational IRA and you have comingled and are now subject to the Traditional IRA cap on protection. So, consider: Buy an umbrella policy that protects you from personal injury claims above standard coverage. Have a spouse hold assets. Make the most of homestead exemptions, especially if theres no limit. Do not use your corporate assets as your personal asset; the corporate shield can be broken if the courts can decide your corporation is your personal piggy bank. Check your states laws regarding insurance and annuities before you load them to the gills. Laws change frequently. Your asset/ liability mix might change frequently. The nature of your businesses risks might change frequently. It is important that you not figure asset protection yourself. Getting professional counsel sooner is better as it might be that these plans need to be in effect many years in order for the wall to not come tumbling down.

I became emotionally involved in this issue. My son went into a crash program. Hes in malls with his store locations, and they were not able to take credit cards. So they were operating with cash. It hurt revenue. The problem wasnt just letting customers know, but it was also that they couldnt operate. This issue, as she puts it, is not simply the near certainty that cyber attacks will occur, but the responsibilities of both large and small businesses who may suffer revenue losses and even be sued by customers after a cyber attack, and thus might require insurance to help protect them. If youre going to buy cyber-attack insurance, says Professor Kauanui, now speaking with the voice of experience, you should buy it based on how much risk you can tolerate. Just like buying insurance for being disabled. People dont buy it for the first day of disability, they buy it for the 30th day or the 60th day. Although businesses have now been at risk for almost two decades from cyber criminals, the massive attack on the Target Corp. last Christmas, and recent news reports of innumerable attacks on Algenol, the Southwest Florida-based company with offices here and in Switzerland seeking to produce cost-efficient energy from algae, have brought the issue to the forefront for many business owners in the region. And some are reluctant to discuss what steps they might take to protect themselves. Paul Woods, the CEO at Algenol, initially agreed to a Florida Weekly interview and then changed his mind and offered a written observation through an Algenol spokeswoman, Tonya DuBois. There is evidence that many businesses from the retail to industrial sectors have been compromised recently due to cyber attacks, but businesses that are working in R&D and developing novel solutions to critical global problems are particularly vulnerable, as our intellectually property is exceedingly valuable. So, yes for companies like ours, cyber concerns will be a part of our future and we will be forced to spend significant time and resources putting barriers in place to protect our valuable IP and other assets. Some insurance companies are leery, too, since both the insurance and the way cyber vulnerability and protection are changing creates too much unpredictability. We dont sell cyber insurance, says Danny Trejo, a spokesman for the Ted Todd Insurance Agency, an Allstate company, in Fort Myers. Part of the problem, he adds, is that such insurance would have to be company wide available at offices throughout the Allstate system and so far that hasnt happened. Nevertheless, Allstate does offer aid to its commercial clients in securing their computer systems, Mr. Trejo adds. Allstate offers a set of guidelines that includes minimum encryption standards, and disciplined use of systems by employees. You save everything to the server. You save nothing on your work station. No PII personal identification information can be sent out from Allstate.com. And we cant respond to any contact that includes PII (sent in the open). Other companies, meanwhile, have plunged into the new world of cyber insurance wholeheartedly.Selling a new kind of coverageFor Oswald Trippe & Co., based in Fort Myers, part of BB&T, the parent company has a full-time dedicated staff member who works out of Atlanta to help businesses buying the insurance. Thats all she does, and she travels wherever required to do it, says John Pollock, president of Oswald Trippe. (That employee was vacationing and could not be reached for comment last week, Mr. Pollock said.) But its a fairly new prospect for many, which may require a lot of education. So far, the penetration rate of people buying this insurance is low, as we work this out, Mr. Pollock explains. Part of the working out involves cost, potential liabilities and what companies require. The largest businesses may not need insurance because they can provide their own security, and they can pay the tab if mistakes are made, suggests Professor Kauanui. But smaller businesses are in a different position, perhaps. The problem with small businesses is they dont even have the support staff to take care of a problem. So when theyre attacked, its far worse for them than for the big company. Its also more of a danger because their margins are so small.Pricing out cyber protectionFor smaller businesses or less techreliant ones in particular, figuring out how much insurance to buy and what rates to accept may not be as difficult as it first appears, says Brian Chapman, owner of the State Farm Insurance Agency in Port Charlotte. The company offers cyber-attack insurance, though not a lot of it because many companies are just realizing a potential need. Because its like the new frontier, its not as difficult as you might think for your average client like a restaurant, or mom and pop florist, or things like that, Mr. Chapman explains. But when you get to e-commerce companies it is a bigger chunk of premium, because all their company is online. Any of your retail operations that have online venues, or small companies that do e-commerce business, like a technology store. Theres no storefront, but they store all this personal info in databases and are vulnerable if theyre hit or attacked. In the event of an attack and challenges to the company from customers, Mr. Chapman says, the insurance company will come in to assist with whatever information was taken, and with reaching out to the clients to make sure they are made whole. Meanwhile, the insurance carrier will walk the clients through the expense of putting product alerts in place, and any additional time they have to spend to reestablish credit or credit card information and a lot of these (insurance) companies will include best practice information and educational information about encrypting data systems, sending secure emails versus general plan emails, and so on. The cost for all this depends on the business, Mr. Chapman says whether its online, how many employees it has, and what the nature of the business is. Its a new product, so it isnt standard yet, he says. You might have a company that comes to the table and does a deal off the gross sales. So if they do $500,000 in gross sales, they might pay $500 for (cyber-attack) insurance. Every company can do it differently. They might look at it almost as an employee cost. For every employee, the might anticipate $100 in cost. In a nutshell, its evolving with our changes as a society. One consideration for businesses with websites is their legal responsibility as publishers, according to information provided by Herndon Carr & Co., at the company website: Many Florida businesses are not aware that the owner of a website has legal obligations toward the people who use that website, because in the eyes of the law a website owner is viewed as being a publisher. Cyber law is a specialty that has developed in recent years to handle breach of privacy, data breaches and other risks that come from using a website on the Internet. Since any who visit a website can potentially become a litigant, the website advises and the number of litigants can be staggering cyber liability insurance is important. (It) provides coverage against the legal cost of lawsuits placed against a company for claims of defamation, slander, libel and copyright infringement, which are risks normally associated with being a publisher. In addition, it covers a business for the specialized risks that are unique to the internet itself, such as invasion of privacy, breach or loss of data, and virus attacks that may occur to third parties who use their website.Professor Kauanuis advice based on the experience of her son, especially for businesses that have not purchased cyber liability insurance, is more direct. You insure for the things you cannot make up for yourself that you dont have the revenue to make up for. If you can pay for it and it wont put you out of business or kill you, then its silly to pay for insurance. CYBERFrom page 1 Bracing for threats A data breach occurs when outsiders gain access to the personally identi able information of customers or other individuals, opening the door for identity theft and other nancial crimes. Ransomware is a menacing scam that involves locking businesses out of their computers and demanding payment of a ransom in exchange for the return of company systems and data. A more recent tactic known as a waterhole compromises a small businesss website and uses it to access the databases of larger companies with which it conducts business. The Federal Communications Commission offers the following cybersecurity tips for small businesses. Install and update antivirus and antispyware software on every computer, and maintain rewalls between your network and the Internet. If you have a Wi-Fi network, set it up so the network name is hidden and a secure password is required for access. Change passwords often. Lock up computers, laptops, and tablets to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands. Train employees in security practices and set up a separate account for each user. Provide access only to the data employees need. Business owners should be aware that the company may be held liable if customers private information is disclosed. Internet liability insurance may offer rms some protection from the nancial risks associated with computer hacking, spam, viruses, and other online perils (up to policy limits).

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Defining TermsSeasoned and beginning investors alike can be confused by financial jargon. Hone your financial literacy with this mini-glossary: American Depositary Receipt (ADR): A receipt for the shares of a foreign-based company held by a U.S. bank that entitles the shareholder to all dividends and capital gains of the underlying stock. ADRs trade like stocks on U.S. exchanges, providing a way for Americans to invest in foreign-based companies in the U.S. instead of through an overseas exchange. Basis point: Most often used relating to changes in interest rates. One basis point is 1/100th of a percentage point. Institutional investors: These include pension funds, insurance funds, mutual funds and hedge funds. Margin account: A brokerage account that permits the owner to borrow money to buy securities. Margin accounts shouldnt be used by inexperienced investors, or those who are putting money at risk that they cant afford to lose. Market timing: An investment strategy based on predicting short-term price changes in securities, which is virtually impossible to do. Prime rate: The interest rate that lenders charge their best, most reliable customers. Real return: The inflation-adjusted returns of an investment. For example, the stock market averaged an annual return of about 10 percent during the 20th century. If you subtract the annual inflation rate over the same time period, roughly 3 percent, you arrive at the real return approximately 7 percent annually. Sector fund: A mutual fund that invests its shareholders money in a relatively narrow market sector, such as technology, energy, the Internet or banking. Underwriter: A brokerage firm that helps a company go public in an initial public offering (IPO). The firm underwrites (vouches for) the stock. When a company has been brought public, the shares have been underwritten. Volume: The amount of a stock (expressed in shares or dollars) that is traded during a specified period.

I watched it get to the high $50s and then swoon, falling to the mid-$40s. I decided to get some income from the stock, so I sold a call option on it with a $60 strike price, so that whoever bought the option could buy my shares for $60 during a certain period. Well, that was dumb. Netflix moved past $60 so quickly that it made me dizzy. I got my $60 per share, but I missed so much more. Lesson: Ride your big winner the few times you have one and use trailing stops to lock in profits J.M.L., San DiegoThe Fool Responds: Youre right; with Netflix shares recently surpassing $470 per share, you missed a bundle. It might help to think about each of your holdings and jot down why youre holding it say, for income or for growth. And be careful with trailing stop-loss orders, which instruct your broker to sell if the stock falls by a certain amount. They could eject you from the stock prematurely, due to temporary volatility. Banking on Capital One FinancialIt may seem like youve arrived too late to profit from stocks trading near their 52-week highs, but thats not always the case. Consider Capital One Financial Corporation (NYSE: COF), the successful consumer and commercial banking franchise with a strong market position in credit cards, auto loans and home loans. Capital One has a convincing track record in growing its core business segments and has become the 13th-largest domestic bank in terms of total assets. Thanks to cyclical tailwinds generated by higher consumer spending, Capital Ones business segments should experience significantly higher demand, which should translate into higher share prices. Indeed, in May the bank recently reported its first uptick in domestic credit card loan growth in almost a year. (A recent study by CardHub ranked Capital One first in offering cards with the fewest limitations on their rewards.) Capital One is resilient. During the financial crisis, its losses were small and it exceeded 2006 profitability levels as early as 2010. Thanks to its strong balance sheet, the bank plans to funnel back substantial amounts of cash to shareholders in the form of dividends and share buybacks. Capital One is worth considering for your portfolio. Its recent P/E ratio of 11.6 is below its five-year average of 14.1, and it offers a 1.4 percent dividend yield. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Capital One Financial.) Few people know my name, but most have heard of my three big brands KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell. They were launched, respecti vely, in 1952, 1958 and 1962. PepsiCo gradually bought them and then spun them all off together in 1997 as Tricon Global Restaurants. Today I sport more than 40,000 eateries in more than 125 countries and territories, and I employ some 1.5 million people globally. I rake in more than $13 billion annually, with about 70 percent of that generated abroad. In 2012, I opened about five new restaurants per day outside the U.S. Who am I? (Answer: Yum! Brands) Seek Wide MoatsQWhat does it mean when a company is said to have a moat? Surely it isnt headquartered in a castle, right? G.L., MilwaukeeAWell, think of a company as being an imaginary castle. If it has a wide moat, it will be well defended, making it hard for any enemies to attack it. In business jargon, an economic moat refers to sustainable competitive advantages that a company may have that protect its market position and defend against competitors or would-be competitors. Examples include brand power, switching costs, patents, economies of scale and barriers to entry. Its hard for upstarts to compete against a powerful brand, and hard for any company to enter certain industries where start-up costs are steep (think airplane manufacturing, for example). Switching costs can keep many customers from changing to a different cellphone carrier or platform. ***QI noticed recently that trading in General Motors stock was halted for some reason. Whats halting all about? B.W., Pensacola, FloridaATrading halts are called when a company is about to announce some big news or when theres a big order imbalance that needs to be corrected. Trading was halted for General Motors because there was news pending the company announced a big new round of recalls (7.6 million vehicles) and a big increase in the cost it expects to incur repairing the recalled vehicles. Trading was halted for about half an hour. The stock had been up by less than 1 percent before the halt, and when trading resumed it was down more than 1 percent. Trading was halted in GMs stock so that no one would be buying or selling shares without the benefit of the new information. Got a question for the Fool?

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 24-30, 2014 REAL ESTATE B21 9 percent, from 4,086 to 3,723. Overall, the luxury segment of the market improved with 156 closed sales over $2 million in the second quarter, up 42 percent from the same time last year. Single-family homes in the $2 million and above market rose 44 percent, from 68 to 98 closed sales quarter over quarter; condos in the $2 million and above market rose 38 percent, from 42 to 58 closed sales. Confidence in the market combined with appealing inventory has increased the number of high-end buyers, says Pat Pitocchi, NABOR president and corporate trainer at Downing-Frye Realty. Another key indicator of a stable housing market is that conventional financing is making a comeback. According to the report, 37.5 percent of homes sales in June this year were financed with conventional mortgages. Thats up 10 percent compared to January 2013, when conventional financing was 27 percent of the market. We appear to be in a more agreeable lending environment, says Mike Hughes, vice president and general manager of Downing-Frye Realty. Boomerang buyers consumers who were hit by foreclosures and short sales are now able to re-enter the market because they can qualify for financing again, he adds. And to an investor, their perception is that investing in real estate has a steady upside versus increasing their investment in the stock market, since analysts predict a major correction by the mid-term election. In all, people feel more confident investing in real estate and, with rates still low, reinvesting and keeping it longer. The NABOR second quarter 2014 report provides comparisons of singlefamily home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Other findings include: Overall pending sales decreased 8 percent, from 3,197 in the second quarter 2013 to 2,949 in the second quarter 2014. A 14 percent decrease in the $300,000 and under price category and 6 percent decrease in the $1 million to $2 million category weighted this figure. Pending sales for condominiums decreased 7 percent, from 1,626 in second quarter 2013 to 1,510 in second quarter 2014, with reductions reported in all price categories. Overall closed sales increased 11 percent for homes priced above $500,000. Overall closed sales for homes in the $2 million and above market increased 42 percent, from 110 in the second quarter 2013 to 156 in the same period this year. Closed sales for single-family homes $300,000 and under decreased 23 percent, from 677 in the second quarter 2013 to 521 in the second quarter 2014. The overall median closed price increased 10 percent, from $249,000 in second quarter 2013 to $273,000 in second quarter 2014. For homes $1 million to $2 million, the overall median closed price decreased 4 percent, from $1,387,000 in second quarter 2013 to $1,325,000 in second quarter 2014. The median closed price for singlefamily homes in the $2 million and above category decreased 15 percent, from $3,225,000 in second quarter last year to $2,750,000 in second quarter this year. Overall inventory decreased 9 percent, from 4,086 homes in second quarter last year to 3,723 homes in second quarter this year. Inventory in the single-family home market increased 4 percent, from 1,896 in second quarter 2013 to 1,964 in second quarter 2014. Inventory of condominiums decreased 20 percent, from 2,190 in second quarter 2013 to 1,759 in second quarter 2013. The overall average days on market is 94 for second quarter this year. Brenda Fioretti, managing broker at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty, says an influx of new construction is adding to the inventory. It should be said, however, the Southwest Florida MLS does not report activity in the new home construction market, she adds. Analysts at NABOR explain that market stabilization is further evident as reflected in the latest report wherein only 9 percent of all closed sales in June 2014 were non-traditional (short sale or foreclosed). Comparatively, in July 2009, when NABOR began collecting this data, 49 percent of sales were nontraditional. Another trend we are starting to see thats helping to stabilize the market is migration by retiring baby boomers who are purchasing homes in that midmarket price range coupled with year-round demand, says Gerald Murphy, district manager and managing broker of Coldwell Banker.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 24-30, 2014 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSWho stars in our romantic fantasies?I recently arrived in the South of France toting a long-stay visa, my own personal golden ticket, permission to legally live in the place Ive dreamed about for as long as I can remember. Now that Im here, of course, I cant stop thinking about Florida. I imagine the flat, smooth waters of the gulf and the way the waves churn in our summer storms. I think about the white sand of our beaches, how the grit stays with you even after youve showered and hung your swimsuit out to dry. Theres the particular smell of Floridas wild places, part muck, part bloom, that always makes me think Im breathing paleozoic air. Theres the hot sun, the dense humidity, and the feeling that I can only describe as home. And I think, I would trade all that for a place whose flowers I cant even name? My indecision to stay or go? Florida? Or France? has paralyzed me, wrecking my time in this idyllic writers retreat where Im staying. Desperate for clarity, I cornered a new friend, a young woman with a keen ear and a reservoir of wisdom, at the tail-end of her lunch hour. I sat down across from her with a pot of tea and a worried air and proceeded to confess my dilemma. She listened sympathetically, and when I had finished she sat back in her chair and seemed to consider. Tell me, she said after a minute, whats the place you dream about? I answered without hesitating. Here. I dream about being here. The young woman sat forward and ran a finger along the edge of her water glass. See, the problem, she said, is that we cant live in the place we dream about. Otherwise, that place becomes like any other. I nodded at the wisdom of this and we moved on to other, less angst-provoking subjects. But later, after dinner and then long into the night, I couldnt shake the sense of sadness our conversation had left in me. Isnt the point of life to merge our dreams with reality? Why are we here, if not to make our desires concrete? While turning over these questions of geography, I made the easy but disconcerting leap to matters of the heart. Can we still dream about the people were with? Amidst the embarrassing realities of daily life the body hair, the flatulence, the toenails is it still possible to cast our partners in the starring roles of our romantic fantasies? Or are we doomed to always be dreaming of someone or somewhere else? There must be some trick to it, a technique I havent yet mastered, a way of loving the one were with instead of always longing for something else. Or maybe Im wrong. Perhaps that longing is everywhere, in everyone. For all I know, we might all be harboring fantasies of some distant place or long-ago love. And maybe thats OK. Im starting to think that we dont need to turn our fantasies into reality in order to be happy. Perhaps we simply need them to exist, a low flame to guide us through the dark nights.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 24-30, 2014 Architects are fascinated by form and function, line and beauty, space and light. They delight in texture and structure. And according to Brenda and Robert Vale, architects earliest education came from those construction sets. In some cases these toys influenced the architects style and design. The husband and wife, in addition to being architects themselves (and experts in the field of sustainability), are lifelong collectors of construction toys. They combine the two passions in their book Architecture on the Carpet: The Curious Tale of Construction Toys and The Genesis of Modern Buildings ($27.95, Thames & Hudson). The book, which is chock-full of research, even includes a chapter on Playplax, which is not officially a construction toy, but simply colored translucent squares of polystyrene that can be interlocked or combined in various ways. (The toy is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, where kits are sold in the gift shop.) The books not lacking in humor either. Here is how the chapter on Lego begins: Of all the construction toys described in this book, Lego is probably the best known. There cannot be many middle-class parents over the last 50 years who do not know what it feels like to step with bare feet onto an unexpected Lego brick lying in wait on the carpet. (The authors go on to note that in 2000 Lego was named Toy of the Century by Fortune magazine and by the Toy Retailers Association in Britain.) We emailed some questions to the couple, who are professors of architecture at the Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. Mr. Vale was unavailable, but Mrs. Vale answered our questions. Heres what she had to say: Q: How did you become inspired to write Architecture on the Carpet? A: Although we had sets of construction toys, Robert collected a lot of Meccano after we came to New Zealand in 1996. (Meccano is similar to the U.S. Erector Set originating in 1913; Meccano was first marketed in 1901 in the UK.) One lot he bought in an antique shop closing down in Christchurch and we had to bring it home on the plane. He was stopped at security and the package was passed through screening a couple of times. We could see things getting a bit sticky, but one of the older guys came across and told the officer in charge that it was fine it was just metal Lego. This was intriguing, as we realized there were younger people who had never played with some of the sets we had. I think it was probably then we wondered whether we could write something about them, so that was the point we began some more serious research. But the book was to come several years later. Q; You say that childrens building sets reflect different styles, but also influenced the careers of some who grew up playing with them. Can you elaborate on that? A: Both Sir Norman Foster, designer of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank in Hong Kong and Sir Richard Rogers, designer of the Pompidou Centre in Paris, say in their biographies that Meccano was influential on their design. Both architects like to express the engineering of the building, so the way the building is constructed becomes the aesthetic of the architecture. The German modernist pioneer Walter Gropius, designer of the Bauhaus, played with German Richter Blocks and claimed these influenced him certainly he had a lifelong interest in making prefabricated buildings. And one things construction sets teach is that buildings can be constructed from modular components. Gropius was never successful in his prefabrication ventures, however, but then few architects are. Q: Youre both architects. What architecture toys did you play with? A: Robert owned and played with Minibrix (bricks with studs that interlock like Lego but that are made of rubber, and with folded rubber roofs that tend to sag) I played with Bayko, but it was owned by a friend, and another of my friends had Lotts Bricks. I only had simple modular wooden bricks, with which of course you can build anything with imagination. Minibrix, Bayko and Lotts Bricks make very modest English-looking houses, and our architecture has always tended to be modest, to try to fit in with what is around it, though at the same time to be very energy saving. We designed a lot of houses and small commercial buildings in the UK in the 1980s that saved 80 percent of the energy to run them at no extra construction cost. To do this, the buildings had to be simple in their form. One thing I recall a quantity surveyor saying early in our career as architects was that walls were cheap and corners were expensive, so keeping things simple saves money. Q: How have construction toys changed over the years? A: Wooden blocks have been around the longest and are found in many countries, but the first real marketing was of German Richter Blocks at the end of the 19th century. These soon became a global product. Model train sets (Merklin) were also marketed around this time, and it was Mrs. Merklin who pushed this. The German toy industry, originally craftbased but still exporting its products worldwide, was the first to use mass production, particularly of tin-plate toys, after discovering the process of chromolithography. This meant cheap printing of bright colors and intricate patterns on metal and paper. In the U.S. John Wright, son of Frank Lloyd Wright, developed and sold Lincoln Logs, which seem very American in the way they build log cabins. Now the toy market is dominated by giants Mattel and Hasbro. (Hasbro now holds Lincoln Logs.) And even Lego has struggled recently. I think this market domination makes it harder to have the wide variety of construction toys that were available in the first half of the 20th century. One huge change is in the instructions that come with construction sets. In the past there were usually a few generic pictures of how the bits fitted together and then there were pictures of finished buildings you were supposed to be able to copy. If you were lucky, youd get a list of parts that will make the building illustrated, and occasionally a plan of the first layer of the building. This is a long way from modern Lego, where instructions are given for the placing of every brick. Q: Your last chapter asks: Does architecture drive the toy, or does the toy reflect the architecture of the time? What conclusion did you come to? A; I am currently researching and writing about dolls houses that I hope will also become a book in time. Here you would expect to find a direct reflection between a dolls house and the typical houses of the period. To an extent this does happen, but equally you can find examples of dolls houses that are nothing like the houses children might have been living in for the same date. The construction sets are somewhat different as usually they can be made to construct more than one type of building. (Lincoln Logs are an exception here.) Some, like the US Bilt-E-Z (1920s) make terrific sky scrapers and other urban modernist buildings, whereas UK plastic Bayko (1934) made superb UK suburban houses but could also later come with a dome piece and instructions for building a mosque, which would seem outside the experience of the average child in the UK. I think the most serious answer is that playing with modular construction sets teaches a lot about the process of building. This might be more significant than what can be built with the sets. CARPETFrom page 1 Architects and their toysWe asked some local architects what construction toys they may have played with when they were children. Heres what they had to say. STEPHEN HRUBY Founding principal Architects Unlimited, Naples I was a collector of blocks. All kinds: Lincoln logs, Block City, Brick City You name it, I probably had a set. As an only child living in a rural area in Pennsylvania, I spent hours building fantasy cities with my blocks and small model trucks and cars. It was my make-believe world. I guess that had some impact in me becoming not only an architect but an urban designer as well. Im still I envisioning urban environments, only on a real scale now. And I still play with architectural toys. My wife only buys me one gift: Lego architecture bricks. Im collecting and building the entire collection. JOYCE OWENS Architect and director Architecture Joyce Owens, Fort Myers and Naples I have four brothers. We played with Lincoln Logs and the Erector set, building buildings to go on the big it was really big! family train set. We also made a lot of forts. I wasnt a girly-type. I didnt have a Barbie doll. I had to keep up with my brothers, whatever they were doing. I never thought Id ben an architect, though. I thought Id be a veterinarian. ELAINE MILLER President Suncoast Architect Inc., Englewood I never, ever played with Lego bricks. I never thought about being an architect until I was a young adult. I didnt know I had a predisposition to construction. The only toy I played with that I could relate to construction would be Tinkertoys. I was totally enthralled with them and the patterns of geometry that could be created. The Design a Building ChallengeWe were curious to see how the three architects above would play as adults, so we provided them each with the same Lego kit. However, we threw away the box, so they have no idea what the building is supposed to look like. We want them to create a building of their own design, using only the Lego blocks and their own imagination and expertise. We gave them a week in which to complete their project. Next week, well show you what they came up with. OWENS MILLER COURTESY PHOTOS / PAUL HILLIERAbove: The Lego green city.

Collier County Museum presents French in Florida traveling exhibitFrench in Florida, an exhibit exploring the beginning of Floridas colonization, is on display at the Collier County Museum through Nov. 7. Part of the Museum of Florida Historys traveling exhibit program, French in Florida offers some of the first European descriptions of Native Americans in Florida, as depicted in illustrations by engraver Theodore de Bry published in 1591 in Grand Voyages. The images and text are based on the work of Jacques Le Moyne, the official artist for the colonization expedition led by French Huguenot Ren de Laudonnire in 1564-65. Mr. Le Moynes works were among the earliest and most comprehensive illustrations of Floridas Native Americans to circulate through Europe at the time; while detailed and engaging, they helped shape European perception of the Native Americans, for better or worse. Consisting of 42 engravings, each containing both illustration and text of accounts by Mr. Le Moyne, French in Florida spotlights a time and place newly discovered by western colonizers. Mr. De Brys engravings were highly influential in Europe, not only in reach, but also for their portrayal of the day-to-day life of the American natives. And while enjoying so much popularity, with special editions created for different languages, the works were also a driver in perpetuating the mystic and mythical misunderstandings about the New World that permeated Europe. While some engravings depict dayto-day dealings with the Ticumua and Chief Saturioua and Outina (a warring chief from the St. Augustine area), such as preparing meals, hunting and tilling crops, as well as dealing with Laudonnire, others portray the natives as savages. Included with the panels in the exhibit is a handy timeline that gives guests a bearing on when and where these events took place in Florida history.

Medically Approved.20 MINUTES A WEEK ALWAYS IN SHAPE! Naples CALL TODAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR FREE STARTER SESSION! ARTS COMMENTARY More than four walls: Looking at architecture It was the title that grabbed me first, with its intriguing subtitle: Invitation to Architecture: Discovering Delight in the World Built Around Us. Then the design (by Carol Singer) and the numerous pen-and-ink sketches by the books authors, architects Max Jacobson and Shelley Brock. Who could resist such an invitation? I RSVPd immediately by buying the book ($27, The Taunton Press). Writing not just for those considering architecture as a profession but also for homeowners and the layperson, the authors structured Invitation to Architecture around Vitruviuss formula. An architect during the end of the 1st century BCE in the Roman Empire, Vitruvius wrote that architecture must achieve three interrelated goals: to be firm in its physical structure, to be useful in its design, and to be beautiful. (Firmitas, utilitas and venustas in the Latin.) They devote a chapter to each characteristic, after an introductory chapter on awareness and one titled What is Architecture (And What Isnt)? These writers arent stuffy; they write about treehouses, forts made of blankets; and dollhouses. Architecture demands proficiency in a wide variety of areas. As they explain: The creation of architecture is arguably based on the widest range of knowledge, skill, and experience of any human activity. It involves looking at and understanding how we use our spaces and places and what they mean to us. It also involves understanding the nature of building materials and the many environmental impacts of building. The making of architecture also requires us to respect and to work within certain limits: those of physics and chemistry, those imposed by our society and its laws, and those presented by a homeowner or a building owners wishes, needs, and financial capabilities. And beyond all of this, architecture plays a role in producing aesthetic, emotional and perhaps even intellectual pleasure in our environment. They talk about an assignment one of them was given in school: Armed with sketchbook and camera, the students were to go into an unfamiliar neighborhood and then come back and report on it. The exercise caused them to really look at their environment which is part of what Im finding so fascinating about this book as I make my way through it: its emphasis on really seeing what youre observing. They also suggest travel as a means of jump-starting our perception. Or, as they put it, When we travel to a new place our perceptual antennae are sharpened and resensitized our eyes, ears, nose, mouth, skin, and muscles all take in fresh images and sensations. We notice everything in a new, more observant way. They also acknowledge that many buildings are not noteworthy, calling them background buildings the structural equivalent to background music. They say that one barrier to the appreciation of architecture is that a good portion of our environment consists of simply uninteresting buildings. Examples include big-box stores and strip malls, each the same, with minor variation from location to location. I couldnt help but think of Southwest Florida when I read that. But then again, when the authors talked about how some buildings are turned by communities into something else, I thought of downtown Fort Myers and how the historic post office was turned into the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center.Check this one outIm also currently reading The Public Library: A Photographic Essay by Robert Dawson ($35, Princeton Architectural Press). Mr. Dawson spent 18 years travelling the country, taking photos of public libraries. This book shows the wide diversity of those buildings. One of my favorites is the quirky Yarborough Branch Library in Austin, Texas, which is housed in the former Americana Theater building. There are photos of stone buildings and clapboard buildings and little shacks. There are libraries in former churches, former railroad stations and former gas stations. Theres one in Philadelphia in a former stable and fire station. And more than one are in former banks. (Mr. Dawson took a photo in Kansas City, Mo., of a 35-ton steel bank vault door; the vault has been turned into a small movie theater within the library.) In the introduction to his chapter on Evolving Libraries, Mr. Dawson writes: Public libraries in America have always had to adapt to new situations and circumstances. In small towns they often share space with other branches of local government. Some are intentionally built that way, while others evolve while communities change. Some libraries share space with shopping malls, while others coexist with opera houses. I photographed many transformed libraries, including ones that used to be banks, Civil War hospitals, jails, churches, railroad stations, gas stations, fish markets, nightclubs and Indian trading posts. This is not strictly an architecture book, but more a collection of photographs with essays by writers such as Barbara Kingsolver, Anne Lamott, Amy Tan, Charles Simic and Ann Patchett, and an introduction by Bill Moyers. But you cant help but notice the variety of architecture, from a trailer in Death Valley National Park in California to majestic buildings in Chicago and Brooklyn. There are old, nondescript buildings and spectacular modern ones, such as the Central Library in Seattle (designed by Rem Koolhaas and Joshua Ramus). There are also photos of libraries that, unfortunately, have been closed (Detroit, New Orleans.) I was surprised to learn that within a library in Richmond, Calif., theres a Seed Lending Library (you can check out seeds to plant vegetables, herbs and flowers, then return new seeds at the end of the season) and a tool lending library in Berkeley, Calif. The entire book is just a love letter to libraries, a view of others homes away from home. A a a o o w nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com

However, it might be a good idea to keep an open mind regarding suggestions from people you know you can trust. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Another chance to shine (something always dear to the Lions heart) might be resented by others. But you earned it, so enjoy it. The weekend brings news about a family member. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A suggestion that never took off could become viable again. Dust it off, update it if necessary, and resubmit it. In your personal life, a new relationship takes an interesting turn. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Confronting a new challenge to your stated position could work to your advantage by settling all doubts once youre able to present a solid defense backed up by equally solid facts. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You enjoy doing nice things for others. But this is a good time to do something nice for yourself as well. You might want to start by planning a super-special getaway weekend. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Some changes you feel you need to make might be reasonable and appropriate. But others might lead to new problems. Think things through carefully before you act. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Good instincts usually keep the sure-footed Goat on the right path. So, what others might see as stubbornness on your part, in fact reflects your good sense of what is worth supporting. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A period of introspection could lead to some surprising conclusions -and also equally surprising changes -involving a number of your long-held positions on several issues. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) The financially practical Pisces might want to take a sensible approach to spending as well as investing. Being prudent now pays off later. A romantic situation moves into another phase. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Technology snafus tax your patience. But before you throw that computer or other bulky hardware into the trash, take a deep breath and call someone knowledgeable for help. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Dont be too upset if your generosity goes unappreciated. These things happen, and rather than brood over it, move on. A new friend could open up some exciting new possibilities. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A loved one helps you get through an especially difficult emotional situation. Spend the weekend immersed in the body and soul restorative powers of music and the other arts. BORN THIS WEEK: Your sense of curiosity keeps you continually alert for whats new about people, places and things.

This is a notable improvement on The Purge (2013), largely because it smartly shows the far-reaching effects of purging. Rated R.Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Andy Serkis) In this sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011), apes and humans try to peacefully coexist in futuristic San Francisco. The ape visual effects are fine but the picture is dull and the story is lazy. Rated PG-13.Transformers: Age of Extinction (Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci) Inventor Cade (Wahlberg) and his daughter Tessa (Peltz) are caught in a government war against Transformers in the fourth installment of director Michael Bays hit franchise. At 165 minutes with a weak story its so long and overwhelming its exhausting. Rated PG-13.Tammy 1/2(Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates) Loser Tammy (McCarthy) and her grandma (Sarandon) get in trouble while on a road trip. Its painfully unfunny, and so bad it makes you worry for McCarthys career. Rated R.Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed 1/2(Javier Camara, Natalia de Molina, Francesc Colomer) In 1966 Spain, a schoolteacher (Camara), pregnant woman (De Molina) and teenage runaway (Colomer) travel to the coast in the hope of meeting John Lennon. Its a sweet, touching story of three people finding answers in unexpected places. Winner of six Goya Awards (the Spanish Oscars). Not Rated (adult themes and situations). Obvious Child(Jenny Slate, Jake Lacy, Gaby Hoffmann) Stand-up comedienne Donna (Slate) is dumped by her boyfriend, loses her job and is knocked up by a nice guy (Lacy) in the span of a few days. Funny and empowering for women, with a performance from Slate that could make her a star. Rated R.

NoAs appealing as the notion of a naked Cameron Diaz having frequent sex in a raunchy comedy may be, the reality of Sex Tape is this: Its incredibly unsexy. Why? Because its hard to believe a sultry sexpot like Ms. Diaz would settle for an average Joe like Jason Segel, so we never buy them as a couple. Worse, the sex scenes arent sexy they feel mechanical and choreographed when they should be wild and uninhibited. The movie is also not funny and lacks energy, it features the worst parenting decision of the year, and Ms. Diaz and Mr. Segel have zero chemistry. Were supposed to believe their characters met in college and couldnt stop having sex. Instead we notice how uncomfortable they look together and dont laugh at the jokes because none of it seems genuine. Presently, Annie (Ms. Diaz) and Jay (Mr. Segel) are married and have two kids: precocious Clive (Sebastian Hedges Thomas) and adorable Nell (Giselle Eisenberg). With the kids occupying all their attention sex has become scarce, to the point that even genuine desire and planning rarely yields results. And when they do get the kids out of the house and Annie dons roller skates wearing only pink underwear and a see-through shirt they still come up empty. Then, a revelation: Take Dr. Alex Comforts The Joy of Sex and perform every single position for a homemade porno to be recorded on a tablet (the type of tablet is repeated often the product placement in this movie is extensive and shameless). It works. Annie understandably asks Jay to erase the video, but before he can, he learns it synched to the numerous tablets hes given away to friends and family. Woops. Now Annie hates him and they have to venture out to surreptitiously retrieve the tablets before anyone watches the video. This includes their mailman, Annies potential new boss (Rob Lowe), Annies mother (Nancy Lenehan), and their friends Robby (Rob Corddry) and Tess (Ellie Kemper). Ms. Diaz is in her early 40s, her body looks great, and whatever she may have done above the shoulders hasnt detracted from her beauty. Pairing her with Mr. Segel allows guys to relate to the film through Mr. Segels character. When hes having fun with Ms. Diaz, so vicariously are we. In contrast for the ladies this is notably less appealing, as Mr. Segels pasty complexion and undeveloped body lack desirability. It takes guts for Ms. Diaz and Mr. Segel to bare all as they do, so credit is deserved for taking chances. Too bad the material doesnt give them more to work with. Mr. Segel co-wrote the script with Kate Angelo and Nicholas Stoller (Neighbors), but the story never seems sure what to do with itself after the initial concept. As a result its aimless and never gains traction. One senses the filmmakers were so enamored with the tagline that they failed to flesh out the story properly, hence the haphazard everything we see on screen. Tell just about any hetero male that Ms. Diaz is making an R-rated movie called Sex Tape, and is seen having sex for a good third of the movie, and hes in. Then he goes and leaves disappointed on all levels. This movie isnt even as good as bad sex. dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Jake Kasdan also directed Ms.Diaz and Mr. Segel in Bad Teacher (2011). Expires July 31, 201420% OFFAll Purchases!

Grand Central. 416 pages. Trade paperback. $15. Readers who missed the hardcover release of this fine addition to the Lincoln Lawyer series in late 2013 can now enjoy the paperback. Before the story opens, Mickey Hallers career and personal life have been shattered by poor judgment and worse luck. His reduced circumstances and his fractured relationship with his teenage daughter have left him drinking too much, spying on her from afar and seeking redemption as well as paying clients. Now, an Internet whiz PR man (read pimp) who pays in gold bricks has been charged with the murder of one of his clients. The victim was a prostitute whom Mickey had cared about and tried to help leave the life. The accused, Andre La Cosse, is wasting away in jail while Mickey prepares for his trial. The trial is the books heart, along with all the attendant planning and legwork. You might guess that a man who runs his business from inside of his Lincoln Town Car would not be disposed to pay big rental fees for office space. For Mickey, having access to a spacious, unrented loft in a largely vacant high rise does the trick. His team meetings are delightfully breezy, yet businesslike too, with key support staff that consists of one ex-wife (this one is not is daughters mother), her muscular husband, a bright and beautiful young woman lawyer who is eager for criminal law action, and the loyal Lincoln driver. The authors descriptions of their interaction are magnificent, the dialogue revealing a group of memorable characters and infectious team spirit. As Mickey questions them, gathers and processes their opinions and gives them assignments, readers get to see the shared thinking and the decisionmaking that leads to a defense strategy that will have several twists and turns. Within his description of the courtroom building, its hallways and the courtroom itself, Mr. Connelly provides an authentic portrait of legal procedure. Mickeys goals include making facts from another case relevant in this one, having evidence of various kinds accepted into the record, having subpoenas w w philJASONpkjason@comcast.net CONNELLY

Another lawyerly technique involves influencing time management in favor of his case, which means manipulating the timing of lunch recesses or adjournment. On what note does Mickey want the jury members to leave the courtroom for their individual deliberations? Speaking of jurors, Mickey has effectively worked, through eye contact and body language, to forge a positive relationship with a juror whom he feels will be committed to his view and represent it in the jury room. Indirection is Mickeys specialty. He is quite skilled at questioning witnesses and dealing with evidence so that the defense is likely to misread his true objectives. Hes a con artist drawing the defense into a trap. By definition, a courtroom scene is comprised primarily of dialogue. Mr. Connelly is a master at differentiating characters and keeping the dialogue fully alive. In the Lincoln Lawyer series, there is plenty going on outside of the courtroom as well. We follow the Lincoln to an eating spot, a prison interview room and back to Mickeys home. In the present novel, violence explodes on several occasions. The Lincoln itself is destroyed in an attempt to scare Mickey off the case (if not kill him). Violence also erupts in the courtroom. Accompanying the intrigue of the investigatory work, the trial preparation and conduct and other ancillary action, the author provides a deep probing of Mickey Hallers character. He is better defined in The Gods of Guilt than any of the other novels in the series, and that observation is to heap praise on top of praise, because Mickey was always well-fashioned by his creator. The moral dimensions of The Gods of Guilt (the jurors) grow out of Mickeys sense of justice and fairness, as well as his observations about the ways in which people can play the legal system especially those employed within that system. For Mickey, to fight hard and win is expiation of his own sense of guilt, whose causes are manifest and troubling. All in all, this is high-level entertainment.

Rookwood pottery continues its American tradition BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELRookwood pottery probably is the most famous of the art potteries made in the United States in the late 19th and 20th centuries. It was started by Maria Longworth Nichols of Cincinnati in 1880, the first of many art potteries founded by women. She saw some French Haviland pottery at the 1876 Centennial Exhibition, and after experimenting she was able to make pottery with similar decorations. In 1880, she started the Rookwood pottery where they made white graniteware and yellow clay pieces. By the next y ear they were making vases with underglaze blue or brown prints, some with Japanese inspired designs. A few years later the main product had standard glaze, a more even-shaded glaze. Rookwood used many glazes, decorating techniques and designs before it went bankrupt in 1941, and it has been bought and sold several times since then. The company now makes architectural tiles and art pottery. The best of Rookwood sells for high prices, modern pieces for very little. But the company has always marked pieces with marks that can be dated. The most famous is the RP mark with flames. After 1900, Roman numerals were added that give the year of manufacture. One unusual Rookwood piece that collectors like is the advertising tile made in 1915. It was given to stores that had Rookwood pottery in the giftware section. Q: I have a solid oak glider that belonged to my grandparents, who were married in 1894. The label on the underside of the chair seat reads Wisconsin Chair Co. Can you tell me something about this company and if the rocker has any value? A: The Wisconsin Chair Co. was in business in Port Washington, Wis., from 1888-1954 and began making McLean Patent Swing Rockers in 1891. By the next year it was producing a line of fancy floor rockers and platform spring rockers, declaring that all of our designs for 1892 are new and tasty. The company was the largest employer in Port Washington. The factory was destroyed by a fire in 1899 but was rebuilt and the company continued to make chairs until it closed in 1954. KOVEL: ANTIQUES This Rookwood tile featuring a dark blue rook on a branch was used for advertising by the famous Rookwood Pottery of Cincinnati about 1915.

Pamper yourself this summer. Montgomery Ward sold several styles of McLean Patent Swing Rockers in its 1895 cat alog for about $3 or $4. Platform rockers dont sell well today. Yours might be worth $100-$200. Q: I have an oak spool cabinet with nine drawers. It reads Willimantic Co. on the top drawer. There is a picture of an owl with a spool of thread around its neck, sitting on a branch with the moon behind it. My cabinet has the original hardware and lettering on six of the drawers. Can you tell me its age and value? A: Austin Dunham and Lawson Ives bought a cotton mill in Willimantic, Conn., in 1854 and founded the Willimantic Linen Co., using an owl as its logo. The company began making thread for sewing machines soon after. In 1879 The company opened a factory to make wooden spools in Howard, Maine, in 1879. The name of the town was changed to Willimantic in 1881. Willimantic Linen Co. became part of the American Thread Co. in 1898. Your spool cabinet was probably made in the late 1800s. Its value is more than $1,000. Q: I have a Beatles metal lunch box made by Aladdin Industries. Its light blue with the faces of the four Beatles and facsimiles of their autographs on the front and a picture of the band playing their instruments on the back. It has a small amount of rust and the original thermos is missing. The inside has a poem about safety rules from the National Safety Council. Ive seen these sell for upward of $1,000 on the Internet and Im wondering what this is worth. A: Dont believe every price you see on the Internet. Look for prices of items that actually sold. Lunch boxes in good condition, with no rust, and complete with thermos sell for the highest prices. A lunch box like yours with thermos sold for $450 in 2012. Another, in good condition but without the thermos, sold at auction in 2013 for $300. Q: I have an Emmett Kelly Jr. Collection figurine called The Teacher. Its marked Flambro, made in Taiwan, Republic of China. Is it worth anything? A: The Teacher is one of several figurines made of Weary Willie, a clown dressed as a hobo. The character was created in 1933, during the height of the Depression, by Emmett Kelly Jr.s father, who also was a circus performer. Emmett Kelly Jr. (1923-2006) performed as Weary Willie from 1960 until 2006. Flambro Imports was in business in Atlanta, Ga., from 1965 to 2006. The company imported figurines, giftware and other items. Flambro sold more than one line of Emmett Kelly Jr. figurines, and prices vary. Your figurine was made between 1987 and 2002 and sells for about $50 today. Tip: Rearrange your furniture so valuable silver or paintings cant be seen from the street.

Is it true that its going to be a series on TV? Nina H. A: It is indeed, Nina. The sweeping historical drama premieres on Starz beginning at 9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 9. The first eight episodes will air through Sept. 27, with the second half of the season returning in early 2015. However, if youre like me and cant wait to see the first episode, starting Aug. 2, you can watch it online at starz.com, on Starzs Twitter, YouTube and Facebook pages, as well as select cable/satellite outlets. The Outlander series spans the genres of romance, science fiction, history and adventure in one epic tale. Adapted from Diana Gabaldons international best-selling books, the series follows the story of Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to the Scottish Highlands in 1743 and thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. When she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) a chivalrous and romantic young warrior for her own protection, a passionate relationship ignites. Q: What are the plans for The View now that Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy are gone? Vivian R.A: The folks over at the morning gabfest have announced they are bringing back popular and polarizing former View co-host Rosie ODonnell. Since Barbara Walters left in May, and Sherri and Jenny left over the summer, come this fall, Whoopi Goldberg will be the only returning cast member of the most recent season. So, aside from Whoopi and Rosie, whom would you like to see as a new co-host of The View? Q: I never knew until recently that actor Christopher Walken also is a songand-dance man. Will he be showing off his skills in anything soon? Priscilla J. A: NBC recently announced THAT Mr. Walken will portray Captain Hook in the networks live musical adaptation of Peter Pan, which is set to premiere in December. The success of last Thanksgivings The Sound of Music Live has proved that America loves a good, live musical, and I have a feeling that Christopher and the rest of the asyet-uncast cast will deliver.

Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 3903187 From the deluxe atmosphere to the expansive wine program to the extraordinary twists on Italian cuisine, Angelinas Ristorante set the bar high when it opened in 2008 and remains one of Bonita Springs finer dining experiences. Although categorized as Italian, the brand has stretched to reflect the restaurants broader aspirations. Also injecting new interest: consulting Executive Chef Sarah Gruenberg, a runner-up in TVs Top Chef: Texas competition in 2012. She manages to elevate something as basic as flatbreads with interesting toppings such as squash blossoms. At the more rarefied end, consider oh-so-tender dry-aged steak tartare with truffle shavings. Its tempting to make an entire meal from the freshly made pastas with add-ins like crab and slow-roasted veal, but you shouldnt miss inventive entrees such as seared scallops paired with crisply roasted pork belly sprinkled with Brussels sprout leaves. Desserts are surprisingly inexpensive and worth saving room for. Full bar. Food: 1/2 Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2014The Counter Custom Built Burgers, 9110 Strada Place, Mercato, Naples; 566-0644 If its burgers, fries and sodas the kids want, heres a place at which everyone can feel happy about their meal. The Counter serves Angus beef from humanely raised cows free of hormones and antibiotics. (Or select vegan, bison, turkey or chicken burgers). Then choose from a dozen cheeses, 32 toppings, 23 sauces, six buns (one is gluten free) or a salad. Milkshakes come in regular or adult versions (with a shot of your favorite alcoholic beverage). I enjoyed a turkey burger with Gruyere, cole slaw, grilled pineapple, roasted corn and black bean salsa, sauted onions and ginger soy glaze on a wheat bun. To my surprise, the whole thing even held together. My companion liked the Old School burger: beef with Tillamook cheddar, lettuce, red onion, pickle, tomato and red relish. Sweet potato fries and crispy onion strings were just right, as were cocktails and a brownie with ice cream, caramel and chocolate sauce. The servers could not have been nicer. Full bar. Food: 1/2 Service : 1/2 Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2013 FUSE Global Cuisine, 2500 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 456-4585 Fried duck mac n cheese, hog wings (braised pork fore shanks fried and tossed with chili garlic sauce, sesame seeds and green onions), golden beet salad with bucheron cheese and micro greens are but a few of the ways to start off a meal at this intriguing spot opened in November by chef/owner Greg Scarlatos (formerly of Angelinas) and his fiance/business partner Monica Czechowska. Entree options offer similarly imaginative, but not over-thetop, combinations: Colorado lamb chops with tart cherry glaze and Stilton potato hash garnished with crisp Brussels sprouts, for example, or cobia and wild mushroom with huckleberry gastrique. Guava bread pudding with fresh strawberries made a fine end to the meal. Service was gracious, the ambience soothing. Full bar. Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed December 2013 Grouper Grille, 2065 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 963-2058 This small, casual spot is just right for a night when you dont feel like getting dressed up or spending a lot but want someone else to do the work. Simplicity reigns here, with dishes such as chicken soup and grilled chicken as well as the grilled, fried, blackened and sauted offerings from the sea. The philosophy is to serve fresh food from local farms, whenever possible, just like Mom used to make. Wine selections are few but go beyond the usual jug options. As you might expect, grouper baskets are popular here. Creamy clam chowder and crisp, well-seasoned fried calamari with spicy marinara were great starters. With the fried grouper, you can also order other items, such as shrimp and scallops, in the hearty captains basket. All the seafood was beautifully fried and accompanied by tartar and cocktail sauces, excellent fries and fresh, cold cole slaw. A pasta platter with shrimp, clams, calamari and mussels was lovely, but the sauce needed a boost of garlic and more herbs. Beer and wine served. Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2013 HobNob Kitchen & Bar, 720 Fifth Ave., Naples; 580-0070 Well-known restaurateur Michael Hernandez (Aqua, Bistro 821, Bistro 41 and Zoes, among others) and Executive Chef Tony Biagetti (formerly of Handsome Harrys) have created a spot that appeals to all of the senses and offers a casual setting yet takes no shortcuts with food, drink or service. From the list of creative cocktails, I loved the Watermelon Fresca (organic cucumber vodka, watermelon juice, cucumber and mint). For those who prefer wine, the by-the-glass list has some great choices. An octopus and white bean appetizer was a superb blend of flavors and textures. Grilled artichoke hearts were tender and delicate, served with a lemon aioli. While the Snapper in Crazy Water sounded more exotic than it turned out to be (the sauce made of coconut water, tomatoes and basil), it was nonetheless tasty. The rotisserie chicken was perfectly cooked, served with mushrooms, fingerling potatoes and onions. For dessert: Bonaffee pudding, a toffee pudding with bananas. Full bar.

This is not just another Italian restaurant. Chef/owner Vincenzo Betulia, members of his family and the rest of his culinary team make their own pasta, cheese, salumi and sauces, buy as much local produce as possible and create dishes that will transport your taste buds to the rustic heart of Italy. Mr. Betulia plans to open a second establishment Bar Tulia next door, where patrons can dine late into the night on small plates and pizzas made in a woodfired oven situated in the dining room so they can watch (and presumably smell) the pies baking. I want it to be fun, he says. I want it to be an Italian gastropub where people will mingle and drink and nibble delicacies such as fried rabbit wings with gorgonzola sauce and house-cured salami and halfsized portions of his popular pastas. He plans a late fall opening. Meanwhile, check out some new menu items at Osteria Tulia, including strawberries with lardo, sorrel and pistachio; lobster and stracciatella with hearts of palm, citrus and heirloom grape tomatoes; wood-charred octopus with black garlic, chorizo and Lake Meadow Farm egg; ovenroasted Magret duck breast with Swiss chard, wood-roasted grapes and shallot agrodolce; and seppia paccheri, a dish that includes all the seafood in the house with fava and toasted breadcrumbs. Save room for the hazelnut gelato sandwich with nutella ganache sauce. Osteria Tulia is at 466 Fifth Ave. S.
