We created what we thought was a great narrative, but who knew if it was true? says Amy Snyder, executive director of the center.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 23-29, 2015 Bring Your Highest Expectations LIVINGSTON ROADPINE RIDGE ROAD EXIT 107WHIPPORWILL LANE N From the high $300s $600s COMMENTARY The canine constituencyHeres an unrealized fact facing us in the 2016 presidential race: Any candidate who remains within 20 percentage points of the lead by next July can still win by enlisting an untapped but powerful special-interest group: the canine constituency. Name the right canine to the ticket and ascend to the White House. It could be that simple. Millions of popular votes lie at stake, a dog-loving force that could overcome both billionaire extremists and corporate-drone super-PACS. To date, the CC has remained largely ignored in the United States. But Americans own almost 75 million dogs, according to the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association, and for the most part we worship them. Its true that we also own 90 million cats, but cats arent human, like dogs, so Im excluding them from consideration. Take the Scottish terrier Fionn (pronounced Finn), for example, a friend of mine worthy of a truly dynamic ticket. Vice President Fionn has a ring to it so charming that the title alone could sweep dog-friendly states California, Texas, New York and Florida, together worth 151 of the 270 electoral votes needed to carry the presidential race. Fionns handlers may have to work on his image a little perhaps add a bow tie in the regimental colors of the Black Watch, and a Churchillian cigar but I see huge political promise for anyone who names this extraordinary dog to a 2016 ticket. By nature, Fionn is conditioned to chase rats. Since Washington is said to be full of rats, Fionn could do good work there. Fionn also has the qualities of a great leader, according to his press agent, whose integrity I can vouch for. He is energetic, diplomatic, social and honest, she told me. If one of his fellow canine brothers miffs him, he doesnt get rattled. The bewhiskered Fionn trots over to the offending fellows food bowl and pees in it. Fionn exemplifies good diplomacy and swift action in the face of aggression and conflict. Imagine how quickly a new president could clear up conflicts with Vladimir Putin in Russia and the Ukraine; with Angela Merkel in Germany and Greece; with Ali Khamenei and the Supreme Council in Iran; and with Israel and Palestine together, simply by delegating just one leg-lifting act of diplomacy to Fionn: Here, boy, heres a biscuit, the president could say. Now go talk to that bloody Putin and stop by his food bowl, will you? Ive got a few other stops I want you to make on this trip, as well dont worry, theres a food bowl at every one. Attaboy! It would be insensitive of me not to warn Fionn here that any wooing from the Trump campaign should be regarded with as much favor as the contents of an overly full cat box in a closed apartment, without air conditioning, in Paris, in August. That said, Fionn may not be right for other candidates, either. So let me offer a few additional suggestions to consider. Marco Rubio: a cotton-fluff Pomeranian to appeal to the fluff-ball demographic, mostly older women or young hipsters. It would look good on his wifes lap, too. Jeb Bush: five fighting pit bulls adopted from a shelter, to toughen up his image. Even though hes lost weight, Mr. Bush still looks like a pampered, private-school rich-boy. Hillary Clinton: a Bouvier des Flandres, because shes always hated Ronald Reagan, who couldnt handle his own. That dog, Lucky, was described by Mrs. Reagan as the size of a pony and banished from the White House. Such dogs do not trickle down, like Republicans. They waterfall down, like Democrats. Ted Cruz: a white Labrador retriever, like Dick Cheneys. Mr. Cheneys got kicked out of Camp David and banned for scaring George W. Bushs dog, just like Mr. Cheney scared Mr. Bush (and everybody else). Scott Walker: a cocker spaniel, like Richard Nixons. Mr. Nixons dog, Checkers, saved the Eisenhower-Nixon Republican ticket in 195 2, by going on TV after Tricky Dick had been accused of taking illegal campaign contributions. Rand Paul: a French poodle with pink ribbons, since Sen. Paul thinks animalhuman marriages may be next. Rick Perry: a German Shepherd, to remind people that he will personally patrol the Mexican border and chew up, with his own very white Texas teeth, any aliens he catches. Bernie Sanders: A greyhound, to suggest that even though he is short and slow and funny-looking, his ideas are not. Theyre sleek and fast and funnylooking. Donald Trump: a Pomeranian like Sen. Rubios, but blond and attached to a hat. There it could yip freely like Mr. Trump, while hiding the rug he currently sports atop the Trump dome. Chris Cristie: a muscled-up hog dog, to suggest that underneath that Jersey lard lies the body and mind of a trackem-down die-hard. t W I w 2 c roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com Vice President Fionn

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 23-29, 2015 Hillary against the Uber economyGrandmothers may know best, as Hillary Clinton has put it in tweets, but judging by her latest economic speech, they dont necessarily get or like Uber. The ride-sharing service is synonymous with the new efficiency and convenience enabled by information technology, and is anathema to regulators and entrenched interests everywhere. Add to the list of its critics the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. Hillary Clinton didnt mention Uber by name but warned about the disruption caused by it and other companies in the so-called sharing economy. Her husband wanted to build a bridge to the 21st century; Hillary worries about the downsides of advances in technology and expanding global trade. Republicans would be foolish not to welcome a contrast with Hillary over some of the hottest companies in the world. The Bush campaign let it be known that Jeb will order an Uber ride in San Francisco during a campaign swing there. In the liberal imagination, the sharing economy is hurting workers by substituting part-time, contractor work for higher-paying full-time jobs that come with the full panoply of traditional benefits and protections. This line of attack creates the impression that these new firms are sucking workers from stereotypical 9-to-5 jobs so they can be dispossessed by tech-savvy entrepreneurs. But obviously something is drawing workers to this kind of work. In a study for Uber, Princeton University economist Alan Krueger found drivers who partner with Uber appear to be attracted to the platform in large part because of the flexibility it offers, the level of compensation and the fact that earnings per hour do not vary much with hours worked, which facilitates part-time and variable hours. Uber is really a paragon of choice. Its drivers decide when or if they are going to work, and customers call it up at will. It cuts out the middleman in the form of the shabby, highly regulated taxi cartels more concerned with their own interests than customer satisfaction or convenience. And that gets to the real issue, which is control. The sharing economy tends to do an end run around regulators, and to challenge entrenched business interests that benefit from a cozy relationship with government. As a disrupter of sclerotic practices in the economy and government, the sharing economy is predictably the subject of a furious regulatory and legal counter-assault. Uber has been a target in cities around the country, and abroad. Presumably the CEOs of sharingeconomy companies in the U.S. dont have to worry about being hunted down and jailed (at least not until Bernie Sanders is president). But when Hillary pledged to crack down on bosses who exploit employees by misclassifying them as contractors, it was clear what she was talking about. She is signaling her intention to declare open season on innovators not to the liking of the regulatory-business complex. One would think that new services that link up workers and customers in creative ways would be welcomed, not feared. But Democrats are increasingly the party of economic nostalgia. They still want that bridge to the 21st century; they just want to travel the other way. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION s e t h w e rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Searching for the watchmanIt has been a few weeks since a white racist gunned down nine African-Americans attending a Bible study class in a historic A.M.E. Church in Charleston. The depravity of the crime stunned the nation. Yet the frequency with which such events occur has hardened us. Our resolve is tentative that we can stop such killings. We fear the eventuality of another mass murder by another deranged gunman. Only something extraordinary could shake the malaise of pessimism and give life to the expectation that anything positive could come from this. And then, something extraordinary happened. The moral courage of the victims families raised the bar for the nations response. The families forgave the killer of his crime. Their act called us to measure our own moral courage against the monument of their grace. It took little time to feel the full weight of what this might mean in the context of, and across the sweep of 200 years of history. In the hours following the massacre, and as details emerged about the killer, the crimes ugly narrative of racial hatred emerged, wrapped in the Confederate battle flag, defended by the murderer in a rant to white supremacy. Here was a beast confronting the nation, risen from an historical myth of the Souths own creation, and carried to its most radical extreme. It was a modern moment of truth an encounter with the dark that lurks beneath political unanimity that stokes its power by feeding the beast. The evidence accumulated that the murders were a hate crime but there were denials by those leery of saying something offensive to white, southern conservatives. They sought refuge in nuance regarding the killers motives, speculating it was about something other than what it blatantly was. They supposed it was a war on Christianity, or President Obamas failure, or the fault of defenseless victims. Like the portrait of Dorian Gray that suffered all the misdeeds of its subject, the party of Lincoln revealed within its ranks the blemishes it suffered to displace the Democratic Solid South, its own soul compromised by the regions extremists. The party is home to the political descendants of Jim Crow and the vanguard of white southerners who resisted racial equality. They are easily identified they hate federalism, swear fealty to states rights, harbor nativist attitudes and beliefs and their drinking buddies are either in or out of the closet as sympathetic to white supremacists. Since the modern Civil Rights Movement, the Confederate flag has served as their business card, its symbolism flaunted as a signal to like-minded kin. Honoring Southern heritage is their Trojan horse to put the symbol in our midst of racist attitudes and beliefs otherwise banished from public acceptability. South Carolina is steeped historically in this form of political subterfuge and emblematic of the class of politicians who promulgate it, the late Senator Strom Thurmond being one of the most infamous among them. The Charleston murders of nine African-Americans on the front porch of God put the state in the crosshairs of a new civil crisis with racial justice at its core. And then, something extraordinary happened again. The Republican governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, stood up and said it was time to take the Confederate flag down from the states capitol grounds. Her pronouncement altered the political landscape as fundamentally as the states bombardment on Fort Sumter that started the American Civil War. Three weeks after Haleys call to pull down the flag, the state Legislature followed suit, acknowledging with its removal the flags painful symbolism for African-Americans. As the flag came down in South Carolina, Democrats in Congress offered a series of amendments to prohibit Confederate flags from display at federal cemeteries. Before you could say amen, Southern Republicans objected, vowing to withhold their approval of any bill aggrieved by such language. Chaos broke out on the floor of the House like in the days of yore when John C. Calhoun extolled the virtues of slavery before his abolitionist colleagues. Protest and heritage not hate demonstrations occurred here and elsewhere to defend public display of the flag. And then, another extraordinary event occurred. HarperCollins announced its publication of Go Set a Watchman, by Harper Lee. Lee wrote the new novel in 1957 and its appearance is occurring more than 50 years after publication of her wellknown classic, To Kill a Mockingbird. The hero of Mockingbird is Atticus Finch, a lawyer who defends an innocent black man falsely accused of raping a white woman. Atticus symbolizes the biblical watchman who serves as the moral conscience of white southerners caught in the web of racial bigotry. Go Set a Watchman recasts the beloved character. He becomes in the story more human than we want him to be and capable of racism, too. Maybe this is Harper Lees way of saying that if there is salvation to be had for our sins we must first admit to being sinners. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 23-29, 2015 COMMENTARYIt is the summer of Atticus and the ayatollahAtticus Finch the fictionalized hero of Harper Lees To Kill a Mockingbird who has resurfaced in a less-flattering form in Ms. Lees recently released novel, Go Set a Watchman and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Irans Supreme Leader, have emerged during these dog days as exemplars of an increasingly disturbing trend, namely the propensity of everyone and his brother (and sister) to pop off on matters about which they are stupefyingly ignorant. It is a testament to Ms. Lees skills as a writer that Atticus Finch became more than a central figure in her magnificent book. The Atticus of Mockingbird is a north star of righteousness who transcended the mean-spirited racial quagmire that was rural Alabama in the 1930s. As crusading heroes go, they dont get much better than Atticus Finch, and Ms. Lees deft depiction was so precise, so moving and so uplifting that many of the books most ardent admirers especially enlightened white Southerners who came of age during the civil rights era have trouble separating fact from fiction. Unsurprisingly, then, Mockingbird disciples who worship at the shrine of Saint Atticus were stricken to learn that in Watchman he is no longer the white knight. If the reviews are to be believed, the Atticus of Watchman is damn near a bigot. Forgive me, but the frenzied boohooing and hand-wringing occasioned by the emergence of the new Atticus borders on the comical. For starters, he is not real. And as for those who say that Atticus reputation should have been preserved, which means that Watchman should not have seen the light of day, I ask this: Can you imagine the clamor if word had leaked that another Harper Lee novel was floating around but would not be published because its contents might upset Mockingbirds feverish readers? I have not read Watchman, so I dont know if it soars or stinks. The reviews are mixed. Most of the people I know who are apoplectic over this literary turn of events have yet to dive into the new book. But that does not prevent them from passing judgment not only on Watchman, but also on how the book they have not read somehow diminishes Ms. Lees considerable literary legacy. That is childish, bordering on nonsensical. Even if Ms. Lee had transformed Atticus into a flesh-eating zombie in Watchman, Mockingbird would still stand as a great American novel. The tempest surrounding poor old Atticus is small potatoes when held up to the untutored frenzy occasioned by President Obamas nuclear deal with Iran. Even before there was a deal, detractors insisted that Ayatollah Khamenei who has a disturbing habit of saying things like Death to the United States! and Death to Israel! and his negotiators were systematically snookering their counterparts from the P5+1 (composed of the United States, China, France, the U.K., Russia and Germany) into a disastrous accord that would result in Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon. It was preordained, in Republican circles, that ANY deal was a bad deal. You may recall that 47 Republican senators months ago took the near-treasonous step of sending a letter to the ayatollah, urging him and his nest of mullahs to scuttle the negotiations. Of course, the Republican naysayers offer no reasonable alternatives, other than bombing the bejesus out of the Islamic Republic or continuing the economic sanctions that havent deterred Iran in the past and probably would have been withdrawn anyway by the international community if the talks had collapsed. This is the most dangerous, irresponsible step I have seen in the history of watching the Mideast, chirped Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican presidential candidate, a scant hour after the pact was announced. Had he actually laid eyes on the enormously complex final agreement? Sen. Graham admitted the answer to that was no, but he said he didnt need to because, I have been to the Mideast enough to know. As Dana Milbank pointed out in The Washington Post, these posturing Republican poseurs howled read the bill during the health-care debate (but) couldnt be bothered to read the nuclear agreement before sounding off. Congress should debate the issue, although most Republicans seem disinclined no matter what the facts may turn out to be to relax the death grip on their premature conclusions. Hopefully, after listening to both sides of the debate and some further study, I will know enough to arrive at an informed assessment of what was negotiated. My willingness to wait and see brings us back to the wise, unsullied Atticus Finch of Mockingbird, who famously declared, Best way to clear the air is to have it all out in the open. k t a i t d bill CORNWELLSpecial to Florida Weekly LOCALLY OWNED & OPERATED!

Sally died here in 1981 and Stanley in 1998. They had no children. A cache of family letters revealing plans, pleas and fact-finding missions during World War II was found when Suzanne Foster, a friend of Stanleys, moved into the Factors home after Stanley died. Ms. Foster delivered the documents which also included birth certificates, the couples marriage certificate, Stanleys membership card to the National Association of Jewish Culture League and much more to the museum about six years ago. Aside from Ms. Foster, the museum has not found anybody who could provide a more detailed picture of the Factors lives as refugees. We printed a letter to the community to see if people knew them, but no one responded, Ms. Snyder says. So we were stuck without a first-person narrative to shape the story. Among the questions they hope to answer: Why was Stanley granted a German gun license in the 1920s? When exactly did they move to Florida? What did they do for work? What happened to the relatives they left behind? The museum has pieced together that while the couple lived in Germany, they both had good jobs where they were highly valued Sally as an executive assistant and Stanley in a position in the film industry until their employers were required to fire them as a result of the Nuremberg Laws. The Bernfeld family sponsored them when they left for the United States in 1936. From there, the details fade out. There are several curiosities in the exhibit, including a letter to one of Stanleys relatives written in Sutter lin, an old-fashioned script taught in German schools that is indecipherable today. Kurt Kriszhaber, who is believed to be Sallys cousin, wrote a heartbreaking letter in exquisite handwriting about having escaped Poland for Great Britain, only to be sent to an internment camp in Australia. A piece of victory mail is highlighted in the collection: a letter about 4-by-5 inches that the U.S. Postal Service would censor, convert to film, condense and reprint to reduce the weight of correspondence being conveyed overseas. The exhibit itself features QR codes and tablet features that invite guests to sniff out information on websites like ancestry.com when inspiration hits. While the museum has had the documents in its possession, staff has put them to good use by using them in teacher workshops focusing on using primary documents. Also, several student groups have visited The Faktor Investigation to learn about historical research. Primary source documents are a big deal to young museum visitors, Sam Parish, the museums educational specialist, says. Its an individual story within a huge context of the Holocaust, and the neatest thing is that (the Factors) died in Naples. That takes it from this theoretical notion to this one guy named Stan. The Faktor Investigation is on display until Sunday, Sept. 27. The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida is at 4670 Tamiami Trail N. in Naples.

The name change coincides with the relocation to a larger facility that will now act as a resource and referral center for caregivers, Guardians ad Litem and case managers. With nearly double the space, the new center is at 2675 Horseshoe Drive S. in Naples. FFCF will continue to fund tutoring, summer camps and afterschool activities for foster children, and now will also be able to offer more resources to the caregivers. The move will allow us to help those who help the children, says Jane Billings, FFCF executive director. With more space, we will be able to make use of valuable volunteers to assemble donated resources, and this will allow us to leverage these donated items such as backpack bundles, emergency supplies, baby supplies and back-to-school items for the greatest impact. The charity recently received a check for $50,000 from Terra Cotta Golf Charities, organizers of the annual Terra Cotta Invitational Golf Tournament at Naples National Golf Club. Since its inception in 1996, the tournament has generated more than $320,000 for area charities. FFCF was the recipient of this years proceeds. I thought the wonderful gift would be $5,000 or, in my wildest dreams, $10,000, Ms. Billings says. A check for $50,000 was truly amazing and a huge blessing for children who through no fault of their own are removed from their homes and many times are moved from home to home.

However, the men were very likely not Jewish, but in fact Mexican laborers hired for the day. A representative of the committee told The New York Times that the men were supplemental necessary because the committees rabbis would not permit their students (who normally staff such protests) to be exposed to the sights of same-sex exuberance typical for the parade. Government in action WOOD-TV of Grand Rapids, Michigan, seemingly uncovered an antiquity if not a potential vulnerability in the Grand Rapids public school system in June when it reported that the heating and cooling systems at 19 schools are controlled using a Commodore Amiga computer (released in the 1980s, about the same time as Windows 2.0), operating on an early Internet modem. It had been installed by a computer-savvy student and, according to the maintenance supervisor, still works fine. Fortunately, the supervisor said, the student still lives in the area and is available if problems arise. Government officials who insist on such bells and whistles as redesigning their departments logo are often ridiculed for wasting taxpayer money (yet design consultants continue to sell the illusion that a new logo can give a bureaucracy a refreshing rebirth). In May, Tennessee officials unveiled a new state logo (which cost only $46,000 not counting the expense of changing signs, cards, stationery, etc.), which consists of the letters TN in white inside a red box with a blue trim underneath. (A Watchdog. org critic suggested a contest to design a superior one, but open only to kids age 12 and under, with the prize a $50 Amazon. com gift certificate.) Compelling explanationsAdultery is illegal in Japan except, as a Tokyo District Court judge ruled in a psychological distress lawsuit filed by the jilted wife, when it is done by a company to retain a good customer. A nightclub hostess who had carried on with the married man proved that she did so only as makura eigyo, or pillow sales tactic. Said the judge, As long as the intercourse is for business, it does not harm the marital relationship at all. (The ruling, from 2014, was first publicized this year.)New world orderIn 1993, the owner of the iconic 5Pointz building in New York City began allowing graffiti artists to use the walls for their masterpieces, but by 2013 had grown weary of the buildings look and had the walls whitewashed. In June 2015, nine of the artists filed a federal lawsuit demanding that the owner compensate them, substantially, for destroying their creations and they stand a good chance of collecting (under the Visual Artists Rights Act) if they prove their particular works are of recognized stature and not merely art of an ephemeral nature. At its height, 5Pointz attracted more than 350 artists works from around the world. Animal world A June entry in Wired.coms Absurd Creature of the Week series warned of the Beaded Lacewing that preys on termites by first immobilizing them with a vapor-phase toxicant released from its anus. The silent-but-deadly gas is reportedly powerful enough to disable six ordinary termites for up to three hours (plenty of time for a sumptuous meal of termite) and weaken several more that might get caught in the backdraft. June 2015 research, scientists from Britains University of Exeter and Queen Mary University of London warned that owners of domestic cats seem not, on average, to appreciate what vicious killers their pets are and urge, for instance, that they be kept indoors more often lest they decimate the neighborhoods bird and small-mammal populations. Estimates of the yearly death toll generated by housecats are in the magnitude of millions in the United Kingdom and billions in the United States. The parasitic ways of the cuckoo bird were remarked upon as far back as Aristotle, wrote a Wall Street Journal book reviewer in May, but some biologists may not have believed the behavior because it was so cold-blooded. The bird, according to Nick Davies book Cuckoo: Cheating by Nature, lays its eggs in other species nests to trick those birds into incubating the cuckoos, who then hatch and kick the eggs of their host out of the nest. The mother cuckoo, it is said, times her mating schedule so that her eggs mature just before the victims eggs would. Hence, according to Davies, she is natures most notorious cheat. Perspective To cover various general expenses (such as helping the indigent), the average hospital mark-up for patient care in the United States is about 3.4 times costs (according to a Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health report in June), but 50 of the nations 5,000 hospitals charge more than 10 times the cost, with the North Okaloosa Medical Center near Pensacola, Florida, billing at 12.6 times costs. According to the co-author, professor Gerard Anderson, the 50 are marking up the prices because no one is telling them they cant. (Forty-nine of the 50 are for-profit hospitals, and 20 are in Florida.) NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

LYNN WEBSTER Special to Florida WeeklyNow that the Federal Drug Administration has heightened its warning that taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can increase the risk of heart attack or stroke, its a good idea to find alternatives that come with no side effects. Fortunately, summertime can be the perfect prescription-free alternative to ibuprofen. Try these mindfulness activities for worry-free, side effect-free healing that everyone can enjoy and that even the FDA isnt worrying about. 1. Let the show go on. Summertime is a perfect time to see a blockbuster movie. With prehistoric dinosaurs coming to life in an amusement park, yellow bespectacled plush creatures who speak a language of their own, a cartoon girl who lets her emotions rule her life and a reboot of just about every movie from the past three decades hitting the big screen, whats not to appreciate about a couple of hours focusing on the magic of Hollywood and forgetting about the reality of everyday life? 2. Its the real thing. In the busy winter season, most of us dream about the sounds of waves lapping the shore, the tang of salty air and the feel of the sand on our bare feet. Summer is a great time to return to the beach. Youll hear, smell and feel the bliss and you might just promote healing and health. 3. Treat yourself. Lets face it. One of the best things about summertime, regardless of your age or state of health, is indulging in the luscious, succulent foods of the season. Within your caloric and dietary requirements, give yourself the gift of indulging in a dessert that will taste good in the here and now. With each lick of the frozen yogurt, sorbet, sherbet or ice cream, you can focus on the pleasure of the moment and lose yourself in the joy of the present. No pill can do that. 4. Give of yourself. The best part of living is when you can give something back. Volunteer to read to children, walk the neighbors dog, deliver meals or pay visits to those who cant get outside. If that isnt possible for you because of health or pain issues, then give thanks for what you do have and what you can do. It's so much easier to feel gratitude when the days are lighter, longer and lazier. And focusing on the positive is always a wonderful change from the alternative. Regardless of your pain, health status and even your budget, as the mercury soars you can be a full participant in many of the opportunities summertime offers. This can be a healing time for all of us, and it comes without any warnings on the bottle. So trade in your ibuprofen for a vacation from everyday reality. Let mindfulness be the best medicine in your supply closet this summertime. Dr. Lynn Webster is the past president of the American Academy of Pain Medicine and the vice president of scientific affairs at PRA Health Sciences. His forthcoming book is titled The Painful Truth. HEALTHY LIVING WEBSTER Continually adapting to the changing health-care environmentEverywhere you look, health care is changing. And the race, as writer Damon Runyon said, may not always be to the swift nor the victory to the strong, but thats how you bet. At NCH, our approach is to be both swift and strong in dealing with the new health-care environment. For example: Purchasing NCH and 40 healthcare systems, including Mayo Clinic, are members of the Upper Midwest Voluntary Hospital Association of America. Together we buy about $2.7 billion of supplies per year. In April, national VHA combined with UHC, a group of 260 academic medical centers and 140 community hospitals, to form the largest health-care buying group in America. These systems working together will help everyone deliver better value for the patients we all serve. Consumerism To quote Eric Hoffer, In times of change, learners inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists. We are in times of such change. The 65-plus population will grow by 28 percent in this next decade, and 25 percent of Medicare beneficiaries have five or more chronic conditions, see an average of 13 physicians and fill 50 prescriptions per year. As the demographics in our country change from having five younger support people for one retiree in 1960 to having two supporters for one older person in 2025, the stress will increase. Consumers facing high-deductible health insurance plans will also become more prudent shoppers. Among the thing happening in response: Wal-Mart is installing MRI machines in many of its stores and charging $400 for an MRI, and Cleveland Clinic radiologists are offering a similar service in Wisconsin. Population health This concept focuses on improving the wellness of the 5 percent of patients who account for 50 percent of the cost. At NCH, we have embraced the Blue Zones Project to move the population of Collier County away from illness toward wellness. Technology Seventy percent of adults in the U.S. have high-speed Internet at home, and 72 percent of them looked online for health information in the past year. Technology is an imperative. At NCH, working with longtime partner Cerner, we have embraced innovations from iPhones dedicated to in-hospital communication to Smart Rooms in our hospitals and wearable devices. Bob Dylan reminded us, The times, they are achangin. No longer can a health-care system resist change at least not one devoted to being swift and strong for the benefit of the community it serves.

FREE In-Home EstimatesCuttingedgegranite.com PET TALESTake a hikeYour dogs company can enhance your experience of the great outdoors BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickHiking is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, spend time with your dog and wear him out, especially if hes the super-active type. Its quite possibly the most accessible activity you can do with your dog. Wherever you live, you probably have access to dog-friendly hiking trails within 30 minutes of home. Weve gathered eight tips to help you both have the best hike possible. 1. Puppies can go hiking as long as you condition them gradually. Start with short hikes of a half-mile to a mile, and slowly work up to longer distances. 2. Watch the weather. Its not just flat-faced dogs who are sensitive to heat and humidity. Plenty of dogs wilt quickly, even in moderate temperatures of 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Any time the temperature exceeds 80 degrees Fahrenheit, its too hot for most dogs to exert themselves. If youre going on a short hike near home, consider hosing down your dog before you leave to help him stay cool, or stop during the hike at a place where he can go swimming or get wet. 3. Bring plenty of water and a snack. For a day hike in optimum temperatures over moderate terrain, a quart of water and some cut-up boiled chicken or hot dogs (frozen the night before) should be enough to keep your dog hydrated and full of pep. 4. Because of the uneven terrain and changes in elevation, hiking is harder on the body than just going for a walk. Pay attention to your dogs condition, especially if hes a puppy or an old dog. You never want to see him panting heavily or unable to go on. Remember that dogs are lower to the ground and may not have the benefit of a breeze. 5. Keep your dog on leash so he doesnt disturb wildlife or other hikers. Accidents happen, though, so he should be trained to come to a whistle. The sound will carry over a longer distance than your voice if you get separated. He should also know and respond to the commands sit, stay or wait, down, heel and quiet. 6. Know how to treat injuries. You can find a pet first-aid course in your area through the Red Cross. Carry a first-aid kit that contains items such as bandages, antiseptic wipes and Benadryl (check with your veterinarian ahead of time so youll know the appropriate amount to give if your dog suffers an insect bite or sting). 7. Tote that load. Your dog can carry his water, snacks, first-aid kit, a folding water dish and poop bags in a canine backpack. Before buying, check the fit to make sure it stays on securely without being too tight or too loose or restricting his movement. You should be able to comfortably fit two to four fingers between the straps and your dogs body. Features that can add to his comfort include a mesh back panel for ventilation and padding beneath the straps. Other conveniences you may appreciate are D-rings for attaching items to the pack, weather-sealed zippers, attachment points for the leash and a handle on top that allows you to hold onto or lift your dog if necessary. 8. Bug out. Protect your dog from fleas and ticks with an oral or spot-on preventive. If the local insect population is especially intense, you can try applying an all-natural citronella spray to his coat. Be aware that the effect probably wont last more than an hour, so youll need to reapply it regularly. Most important, have fun! See you on the trail. Hiking is an opportunity to see nature through your dogs eyes and nose. Pets of the Week>> Bianka is a spayed, 4-year-old Labrador mix who is full of life and love.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 23-29, 2015 NEWS A27 Open Monday-Saturday 9AM-5PM & Sunday 1PM-5PM THE FLOOR MEISTERS THE DIVA DIARIESJust step inside the gate, pleaseI never thought I would say this, but I might be ready to live on the other side of the gate. With apologies to those who call country club communities home, for most of my life I have vowed Id reside in a pup tent before Id move to a gated c ommunity with c ookie-cutter Mediterranean architecture and street names like Villa Valencia Venezia Verona Circle. As a younger diva, I was always on the hunt for the oldest, quirkiest, cheapest rentals I could find. My first apartment on the beach was a $250 efficiency with mint green terrazzo floors, one window air conditioner and a pesky palmetto bug (for yall Northerners, palmetto bug means unusually large cockroaches) problem. I probably could have done better, but I loved that it was just a few steps away from the Gulf of Mexico and being 19, it never bothered me that my neighbors on the other side of the duplex blared Bob Marley all night long and the smell of pot constantly wafted under my front door. In fact, I remember always feeling fantastically relaxed most of the time. Throughout my 20s and 30s, it became almost a goal for me to be able to find the funkiest yet most fabulous living spaces. I had no interest in newer, vanilla apartment complexes with plush beige carpet and leases that forbade painting the walls. I mean, sure, the plumbing worked, but where was the character? The thing I loved most about the ramshackle places I rented back then was that landlords couldnt have cared less what sort of decorating changes I made almost anything was an improvement. I remember moving into one old cottage ($400 a month) and ripping up the 0s-era orange shag carpet to discover the original 1930s hardwood floors in beautiful condition. In a stilt house I lived in ($500 a month), the owner was fine with me painting whimsical flowers and vines all over the dilapidated kitchen cabinets. And when I was finally able to afford a $600-a-month 1950s ranch style house, the landlord asked me to be patient until he was able to remodel the bathroom, which had a pink toilet and tub and aqua blue tile on the walls. I begged him not to remodel; it was the coolest bathroom EVER. But, something within me apparently has changed. It started when I recently visited a girlfriend who lives in a gated country club. Mind you, her place is not fancyschmancy or anything; its simply a lovely coach home. But not only is everything brand spanking new, she NEVER has to venture beyond the gates. She has golf, tennis, a gym and a pool all just a stroll away. She even has a private club with a fabulous happy hour that she can see from her balcony. And since shes moved in, she has made tons of new friends within the gate. They can come over for dinner and drinks and NO one has to get into a car EVER. Also, lawn service comes with the whole package. Never in my life did I think Id be into white walls, built-in microwaves or the sound of someone hitting a tee shot in the distance. But I think with age comes an appreciation for comfort and convenience. Although, if my husband and I ever do choose a life on the other side of the gate, Im wondering if we might be able to order up a pink tub. Just leave out the palmetto bugs and the window A/C unit, please. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

Florida gained 266,200 jobs in the last year in non-agricultural vocations, for a 3.4 percent increase in jobs across the board. The southwest coast benefitted in kind, with some small variations between Collier and Lee counties, and slightly lower growth or no growth in some sectors in Charlotte County. County officials embraced the reports on the whole as optimistic indicators, while an economist at Florida Gulf Coast University offered a more cautious and sober analysis. Statewide, construction jumped 7.2 percent, with strong gains in heavy and civil engineering. Jobs in the hospitality industry increased almost 5 percent over the year, and education and health services posted a 4.3 percent gain. Even government jobs were on the increase, showing a 1.1 percent jump for federal jobs, with a .6 and .4 percent jump for state and local government jobs, respectively.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 23-29, 2015 MONEY & INVESTINGWelcome to the world of securitizationAs I was dropping my twins off at their elementary school yesterday, I noticed another father dropping off his son wearing a T-shirt that said PETA People Eating Tasty Animals. While I will not comment on the appropriateness of said T-shirt at an elementary school, I did find my own reaction interesting. For some reason, the slogan really upset me, despite the fact that I eat meat on a regular basis. How can I relish a great steak but still be bothered when I think about where that beef came from? In banking, there is a similar concept. People love when they can get a loan at a great rate for a house or car but where did that loan really originate? Welcome to the world of securitization. Prior to the 1980s, the consumer loan market was very simple. Your local bank would collect money from checking accounts and CDs by offering a nominal interest rate and then lend out that money to people that needed it at a higher rate. The banks profit would come from the differential of the two interest rates, over time, as the borrower paid back the loan. The bank would carefully evaluate the credit of any potential borrower because it was the banks money at stake if the customer did not repay the loan. But then came along a moderately smart bank executive who really didnt like it when the bank lost money when its customers defaulted on their loans. And he didnt like it that he had to wait sometimes as much as 30 years to get the profits on the loans they made today. So he thought, what if the bank would originate the loan and then sell the loan to someone else. The bank would get its profit upfront and wouldnt have to worry about whether the customer defaulted 10 years down the road because it didnt own the loan any more. But he found that investors werent that excited about buying individual loans because they didnt know the borrowers and couldnt accurately evaluate the loans risk. But then came along an even smarter bank executive who decided to combine all of the banks loans together in one giant pool. And instead of selling the individual loans, the banker sold a claim on the cash flows coming from the entire portfolio of loans. Investors were much more interested in owning a diversified portfolio of loans than one or two individual loans because the risk is spread out. This is similar to owning a mutual fund where you own a very small amount of many different stocks compared to owning a larger amount of just a few stocks. Further, the banker determined that investors had different risk tolerances. Some investors only wanted to own predictable cash flow investments but others would be willing to take a higher risk of non-payment if it meant they would receive a higher interest rate. So the banker offered different types of claims on the loan pools earnings. The A claims were paid first, then the B claims, down the line. Of course, the B securities were paid a higher interest rate but also would be more likely to not to be repaid. This securitization of loans was a huge hit. Banks rushed to cash in on the fees and upfront profits they could get by selling their loans to investors. They wanted more and more loans to sell so they cut the interest rates they charged borrowers and lowered credit qualifications. After all, they wouldnt take the charge if the loans went bad, the investors who owned the loans would. Banks made record profits but consumers were, on the surface, also winners. Interest rates on everything from houses to cars to student loans were at record lows. And even borrowers with marginal credit were able to get a loan from their bank. Things were great until they werent. Unfortunately, I dont have the space this week to delve into what went wrong during the financial crisis. Lets just say that basically everyones assumptions regarding the creditworthiness of securitization pools were dead wrong. This almost led to the complete destruction of our entire financial system. Only through the extreme emergency efforts of the central banks of every industrialized nation are we not currently shopping at the grocery store with gold and silver coins. So, for a while, the securitization market ground to a halt while banks and investors licked their wounds. Banks were forced to hold on to loans once again which meant they formed very strict approval processes. The housing market crashed as people could not get loans. But after a while, investors started to dip their toes back into the loan pools and now the securitization market is back in almost full swing. Loans are plentiful and rates still low. Investors think they have learned their lessons and better understand their risk. In fact, not only are traditional mortgages now being securitized but credit card loans, student loans, car loans, lease receivables, and small business loans are as well. So securitizations are now completely benign and we are completely protected against a future financial disaster, right? I would say, Securitization traunches are like sausages; it is better not to see them being made.

Leisure and hospitality jobs increased 8.9 percent in Lee, while they grew only 2.7 percent in Collier, and declined by 1.7 percent in Charlotte County. In Charlotte, professional and business-services jobs declined by 2.1 percent, and there was no growth in financial-activity services, manufacturing, retail trade and informationsector jobs. Tourism is important for our diversification effort, adds Mr. Salyer. The leisurely traveler becomes the snowbird. The business traveler becomes the one who says, I can also do business from Southwest Florida, so either I can move my business there, or establish a satellite office. Tourism becomes the gateway for the economic development office. In Collier County, a whopping 9 percent jump in manufacturing, along with increases of 7.1 percent in the information sector, 6.7 percent in transportation, 6.6 percent in goods producing, warehousing and utilities, and 6.2 percent in business services, all suggest a significant diversification of the economy, which traditionally has relied on tourism and real estate development up and down the coast. Im pleased for three reasons, says Bruce Register, director of business development for Collier County. First, our 300 new manufacturing jobs represent 7 percent of the states growth, and thats just in Collier alone those are in medical devices, defense, aerospace, big diesel. Second, our information industries are growing, thats at 7.1 percent even though the state had a negative number. And third, our professional business services, which is a little broader, have shown decent gains, up about 900 jobs.Subsurface currentsBut FGCU Economics Professor Christopher Westley, director of the Regional Economics Research Institute, suggests that the cheery numbers should be regarded with some caution when considering the health of Floridas economy. Factors both near and far can influence the relative stability of those increases, he says, including the strength of the Euro, interests rates established by the government, whether or not people save or invest in hard commodities and not just the stock market, how much commercial lenders will lend, and the total hours worked in a given field such as transportation, construction, leisure services or trade. There may be more jobs on a construction crew or in a hotel, for example, but if the total number of hours worked or the wages paid for those hours do not increase significantly, the higher job number may not be as important as they appear. The report is what youd expect when growth is resulting from lowinterest-rate policies going on for a long time, he says. My problem right now is this: Do we have sustainable growth based on real savings, or is this growth based upon cheap money? When interest rates remain so low for so long, there is little incentive to save, either for individuals or for investors, who may gamble on a higher return in the stock market or the derivatives market to grow weath, he explains and that can lead to trouble. In addition, he says, its one thing to look at increasing job figures, which make the market seem strong. But if you look at total workplace hours, that hasnt changed. Were exactly where we were in 2007. Were working the same number of hours in the economy as we were then. And we have to ask if a typical job pays as much as before. To get the same value for $100 spent in 2007, people this year must spend more than $115, according to the U.S. Inflation Calculator. And as far as wages are concerned, they peaked in 1973 and have remained relatively flat for the next 40 years. Then, the average American wage of $4.03 per hour had the equivalent spending power today of $22.41, according to an analysis by the Pew Research Center. As of last year, the average annual wage in Florida was $20.51, while the average wage in the nation was $22.71, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.CompetitionNaturally, competition to woo and win personal or business investment in a county or a region exists, which might put the heads of economic development in each county at odds. But thats not quite how they see it. Are the counties on the coast competing directly with each other or trying to think regionally? Im in competition with my mother, says Colliers Mr. Register, chuckling. But the more realistic answer, he adds, is that were in competition, but were collaborative in that competition. We can market ourselves as neighbors better than we can market ourselves alone. So theres always going to be a level of competition, but we will complement each other in large degrees. Thats the way Glen Salyer sees it, from a Lee County perspective. I do feel a strong sense of competition with other areas within the state, and with a few competitive markets outside of Florida. But I dont feel that sense within our region. There are two main regions. When you look at these the incremental ad valorem taxes (property taxes) the new jobs generate, they are not that significant. The impact is in capital investment and recurring economic impacts with new jobs. If a company chooses to locate in North Naples, you better believe a significant portion of the workforce is coming from Lee County. The same holds true to our north. If Charlotte gets a company, good. I guarantee the workforce will come from Cape Coral or Lee. We have the colleges, the airport, the workforce you name it. Were at the center of that for our region.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Do You Need Long-Term Care Insurance?Long-term care insurance is designed to help pay for a nursing home or other skilled care as you age. Without it, if your health forces you to make a permanent move to a nursing home, the rest of your major assets (such as your house, your car and even your savings) become far less useful to you and can be sold to help cover the costs of care. Once your assets are nearly completely depleted, Medicaid will step in to cover remaining costs. (Note: Not all nursing home facilities accept Medicaid, so plan accordingly.) If only one spouse needs costly care, Medicaid provides modest income and housing protection for the other spouse.Youll experience less financial disruption with long-term care insurance. Many people buy it in their 50s, when it can cost thousands of dollars per year. Wait longer, and it can cost much more. Premiums can vary based on your age, health and the insurance companys specific underwriting factors. They also depend on your personal choices, such as the maximum daily benefit level, the length of stay your policy would cover and any waiting periods before the coverage starts.Unless you expect to work until you pass away or become incapacitated, youll have to keep paying those premiums throughout your retirement to keep the insurance in force. Thus, youll need enough spare income in your retirement to pay the premiums, requiring a solid asset base, a strong pension and/or a very low cost of living. Some experts suggest that those of limited means plan to rely on Medicaid, while affluent folks can plan to simply pay long-term care costs on their own. Those in the middle can decide whether they can afford long-term care insurance or they might try to self-insure, by stockpiling dollars in a separate account earmarked for long-term care. For context, the average annual cost of a nursing home room is around $80,300 per year for a semi-private room or $91,250 for a private room. And the vast majority of people stay in nursing homes for fewer than five years. Doh!One of my dumbest investments was a young company called Intuitive Surgical. A Motley Fool writer wrote a great article about it, and it left me with such a good impression that I purchased 3,000 shares at about $17 each (yes, thats about $50,000). For the next two years, I watched the price fluctuate between $17 and about $12. I eventually got so tired of watching that deadbeat that the first time I got a little pop (to around $18), I sold the entire position. Well, the stock has been trading around $485 per share recently, so you do the math. I definitely left a lot on the table. By the way, less than a year later, Fool co-founder David Gardner was recommending the stock to his newsletter subscribers at about 2.5 times my sale price. Unfortunately, I found it difficult to buy back something I just sold, so I never added the stock back to my portfolio Doh! R., onlineThe Fool Responds: You would have made more than a million dollars had you hung on, but selling was the right thing to do if you no longer had faith in the company. Intuitive Surgical (Nasdaq: ISRG), which makes and sells robotic surgical equipment, has been volatile, but long-term believers are counting on more and more hospitals buying its machines over the coming years. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Intuitive Surgical and has recommended it.) To Your Health!Amgen (Nasdaq: AMGN) is a biotech blue chip stock on the cusp of a new product cycle, according to company management. If all its pieces fall into place, the company should break a long dry spell with several new drug launches. Indeed, Amgen is projected to deliver data on or file new drug applications for 10 late-stage products between 2014 and 2016. Its powerful Repatha cholesterol drug has been recommended for Food and Drug Administration approval. Its talimogene laherparepvec, or T-Vec, drug is particularly interesting, as its an immunotherapeutic product for metastatic melanoma, with an approval possibly leading to numerous T-Vec drug combinations being tested. Amgen also sports some recently approved drugs, such as Blincyto, which treats patients with a rare form of acute lymphoblastic leukemia. This is exciting because Blincyto is an immunotherapy product in a category of therapies expected to grow briskly. The FDA also approved Amgens Corlanor to treat people with chronic heart failure. Meanwhile, Amgen reported some promising data for drugs treating colorectal cancer and migraines. A rosy future isnt guaranteed, since Amgen faces competition on many fronts. Still, it offers many reasons to be hopeful, along with a dividend that recently yielded 2.1 percent and a forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio in the midteens. Amgens stock should be of interest to long-term investors. I trace my roots back to Detroit in the 1940s, when a dessert that Evelyn Overton prepared was so well-received that she began making more of it and selling it in relatively modest numbers. In the 1970s, she moved to Los Angeles and opened a bakery. Her son opened an upscale casual-dining restaurant named for the dessert in 1978, and it has now grown to close to 200 locations in the U.S. and around the world. My extensive menu features more than 250 items made from scratch each day, including more than 50 desserts. Who am I? (Answer: The Cheesecake Factory) Rent or Buy?QIf I plan to move within a few years, is it dumb to buy a house? S.S., New OrleansAIt will be risky to buy a house, as you might not recoup the buying and selling costs, which can total more than 6 percent of a homes value. With a traditional mortgage, your payments in the first years are mainly applied to interest, not to paying off the principal. After living in the house for only a few years, youll still owe the majority of the loan. (Plus, youll have paid for repairs, insurance, property taxes, etc.) Renting is an option everyone should consider. Yes, you lose the mortgage interest tax deduction and dont build equity, but if your rent is much less than your mortgage payment would be, you might invest the difference and build a little nest egg. If you expect home prices to fall or stagnate in the coming years, renting would be especially prudent.Learn more in our Home & Real Estate nook at fool.com/how-toinvest.

REAL ESTATE NEWSMAKERS JONES BRYANT TAYLOR The second quarter 2015 market report released by the Naples Area Board of Realtors indicates 60 percent of the market experienced inventory growth and overall sales activity remained on pace with activity charted in the second quarter of 2014. NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). The latest report also indicates a 9 percent increase in pending sales (quarter over quarter) for homes priced above $300,000. In this quarter last year, 44 percent of pending sales (homes under contract) were for homes in the $300,000plus category, says Brett Brown of Premier Sothebys International Realty. In the current report, he adds, that number has increased to 53 percent. Mr. Brown points out that from 2010-12, 80 percent of all pending sales were homes priced at less than $300,000. This price segment no longer makes up the majority of the markets inventory. The market was quite different 10 years ago, with a lot of flipping and loose financing going on. The second quarter market report shows a gradual increase in financed homes to 38.3 percent of the market in June 2015, and a non-traditional market (short sales and foreclosures) that is dwindling at just 7 percent of the market. Prior to 2014, prices in all segments were going up, says Tom Bringardner Jr., president and CEO of Premier Commercial. But a side-by-side comparison of overall activity for the first six months of last year to this year signifies a different climate where the market has reached stabilization. The Naples area experienced a 14 percent increase in overall median closed price, fr om $255, 000 in the 12 months ending in June 2014 to $290,000 in the 12 months ending in June 2015. Yet this increase was driven by increases at both ends of the market spectrum during this time period: There was an 11 percent increase in homes prices less than $300,000, and a 15 percent increase in homes $2 million and more. The median closed price for homes over $300,000 and under $2 million decreased 1 percent. Pockets of market highs and lows will continue to appear in the area, as demand and location continue to be major market influencers. For example, the latest numbers show an 83 percent increase in inventory for condomini-NABOR numbers show 2015 on pace with 2014 activity SEE NABOR, B14 6559 Ridgewood Drive, Pelican BaySPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________

Inventory for single-family homes continues to rise, with a 9 percent increase, from 1,964 homes in the second quarter of 2014 to 2,133 in the second quarter of 2015. The condominium market saw an 11 percent decrease in inventory for second quarter 2015, from 1,759 condominiums in the second quarter of 2014 to 1,565 in the second quarter of 2015. The NABOR report provides comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Among the overall findings: Overall pending sales decreased 4 percent, from 2,949 in the second quarter of 2014 to 2,843 in the second quarter of 2015. Overall closed sales remained flat, with no increase or decrease reported in the second quarter of 2015. Closed sales for condominiums in the $300,000 to $500,000 price category increased 38 percent, from 682 in the second quarter of 2014 to 938 in the second quarter of 2015. Overall median closed price increased 14 percent, from $255, 000 in the 12 months ending second quarter of 2014 to $290,000 in the 12 months ending second quarter of 2015. Overall inventory decreased 1 percent, from 3,723 homes in the second quarter of 2014 to 3,698 homes in the second quarter of 2015. Overall inventory for homes under $300,000 decreased 24 percent, from 1,366 in the second quarter of 2014 to 1,036 in the second quarter of 2015. Inventory for single-family homes in the $500,000 to $1 million category increased 32 percent, from 456 in the second quarter of 2014 to 604 in the second quarter of 2015. Average days on market decreased 20 percent, from 94 days in the second quarter of 2014 to 75 days in the second quarter of 2015. The June numbers, year to yearThe NABOR June 2015 market report was also released and reflects these overall (single-family and condominium) findings: Overall pending sales increased 5 percent, from 840 homes in June 2014 to 882 homes in June 2015. Overall closed sales remained flat, with no increase or decrease reported in the 12 months ending June 2015. Overall median closed price increased 14 percent, from $255,000 in the 12 months ending June 2014 to $290,000 in the 12 months ending June 2015. Overall inventory decreased 1 percent, from 3,723 homes in June 2014 to 3,698 homes in June 2015. Average days on market decreased 22 percent, from 94 days in June 2014 to 73 days in June 2015. Overall inventory is almost the same number as it was this time last year, which is amazing when you consider the fact that we have had 9,850 closings over the last 12 months, says NABOR President Mike Hughes, vice president/general manager of Downing-Frye Realty. Overall, this tells you that the properties are being listed almost as fast as we are selling them, he adds. Certainly we would like to see more listings come on the market than the 3,698 properties that are currently listed. If there is a perception that inventory is dramatically shrinking, the newest numbers show us that this observation is unfounded. Steve Barker, advising broker of Equity Realty, says he saw more locals selling and buying homes in the second quarter of 2015. Market conditions are right for this type of transition, he says. People are no longer underwater in their homes and are confident its a good time to sell and move into a new community. View the complete report at naplesarea.com.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 23-29, 2015 B15 In the great room in the Antilles model, furnishings with classic, clean lines carry out the homes elegant, contemporary architectural lines.Antilles model in Quail West features interiors by Norris SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNorris Furniture & Interiors has completed the interior design on the awardwinning Antilles model home by Florida Lifestyle Homes at Quail West Golf & Country Club in Naples. Norris designers Luanza Maitland and Sydney Leigh Warren provided interior design for the Antilles. The Antilles is filled with unique and statement making architectural details, Ms. Maitland notes. Our design approach reflects and accentuates the builders striking treatment of the home. We selected a color palette of soft neutrals, including creams, taupes and mochas highlighted by accents of warm orchid tones. Furnishings with classic, clean lines were selected to carry out the contemporary yet elegant statement made by the homes architectural lines. Dramatic ceiling treatments include a circular beam pattern finished in a rich, dark wood suspended within a recessed tray ceiling in the great room. A commanding feature and focal point of the great room is a large fireplace encased in marble and bordered with custom built-in cabinetry framed with dark wood. Frosted glass backlit panels are positioned behind the cabinetry shelving, providing an innovative look that is stylishly sleek. A dropped beam pattern ceiling treatment that is reminiscent of the petals of a flower makes a dramatic statement in the master suite. We selected a grand upholstered bed and dressed it with sumptuous bed linens to lend a sense of calm and relaxation to the master suite, Ms. Maitland says. The Antilles dining room opens directly to the lanai, providing a smooth transition from the indoor living space to the outdoor living area. In the dining room, a distressed driftwood oval table provides a nice contrast against the highly polished Carrera tile floors. The Antilles model is priced at $2,045,000 fully furnished. It has a total of 6,787 square feet that includes 4,083 square feet of air-conditioned living space. There are four bedrooms, a study, 4 baths and a three-car garage.

Then you notice the big white wall behind it, and the watchtower at the top, and you realize its a prison. And the image takes on new meaning. Its a powerful commentary about time about how we view the passage of time, about doing time, about how time passes inside those walls and outside them. If you look closer, you realize the clock itself is a memorial; written on its face are the words: In Memory of Bill and Molly Brennan. Those words are another commentary on time: Time passes, and wherever and however we pass it, theres always the inevitable end. The second annual Island Hopper Songwriter Fest along the beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel announced an illustrious lineup of talent. The 10-day festival kicks off Sept. 17 with a special performance by Kristian Bush, who built his reputation as one half of the multi-platinum, Grammy-winning country duo Sugarland. Other talents include Parmalee, a country/rock group made famous by its No. 1 smash, Carolina and single, Musta Had A Good Time. Jana Kramer, a country singer and actress on the TV show One Tree Hill, will perform her smash single, Why Ya Wanna. The festival kicks off Sept. 17-20 in the Captiva Ballroom at South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island. New to the festival, downtown Fort Myers will feature midweek performances. The festival closes the weekend of Sept. 25-27 on Fort Myers Beach.

I told her the truth: A kick in the teeth would have felt better. Internet dating, it turns out, is not for the weak of spirit. When I signed up for eHarmony, I anticipated the results Id heard from other women who have tried Internet dating: an onslaught of enthusiastic messages, a handful of mildly inappropriate comments and perhaps an inappropriate photo or two. What I got was nothing like that. For starters, eHarmony has an elaborate courtship ritual as complex and indecipherable as the mating dance of bees. It begins with an opening salvo, a list of five close-ended questions one interested party sends to the other. If that goes well, then each person mails his or her must-haves and cant-stands. Still on track, both people send three openended questions. Finally, if there have been no hiccups, the couple graduates to email communication. My problem: I never made it that far. Somewhere between the initial contact and the open-ended questions, all my suitors lost interest. The hotel promoter in Miami? The Lebanese surgeon? Even the George Saunders fan? Every. Single. One. What was it about me? How could they tell from my answers that we werent a good fit? Was it because I said Id rather eat in a fun hole-in the-wall restaurant than a four-star establishment? Because if I had three wishes, one of them would be for a farmhouse in France? Because one activity I enjoy that Id like to share with a partner is yard work?Its because men arent interested in changing a woman, a friend said when I told him my dilemma. Either it will work or it wont. Men can see that right away. I know hes right, but what if were a little on the quirky side? What if we have a strange sense of humor or a life thats outside the norm? I didnt join eHarmony to get rejected again and again. I want to meet someone. So I started tailoring my answers to fit my matches. The beefy guy holding the fish in his profile picture? I told him my favorite Saturday night activity is going to sporting events. The suave entrepreneur from St. Pete? For him, I like going to the symphony. Not surprisingly, my trick worked. I started making it farther and farther in the process. Too far. Soon, instead of them losing interest, it was me. We werent a good match, I was simply feeding them what they wanted to hear. Just as I started to get overwhelmed, I remembered something I once read about online dating: The goal is not to attract everyone. Its to attract the one person who is right for us. Quirks and all. So I stopped tweaking my answers. I quit trying to be someone Im not. Its true that I prefer to go bowling on a Saturday night. If I have the choice between watching TV and reading, I read. And, yes, I really would like to find someone who likes doing yard work. Artis Henderson is the author of Unremarried Widow published by Simon and Schuster. artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 23-29, 2015 Bill McDowell grew up 15 miles away from Dannemora, where he shot that photo. A professional photographer and instructor, he still lives in Plattsburgh, a neighboring town in upstate New York. The Clinton Correctional Facility, he says in an email, has always had a strong influence on the surrounding communities. It also received national attention recently when two prisoners broke out and were hunted for three weeks before one was killed and the other finally captured. Mr. McDowell toured the prison a few years ago with a local architectural heritage group. I was blown away by the chapel built by the inmates, and by their gardens, he says. The experience inspired him to attempt to make photographs that were not the stereotypic images of prison life. Not only did he accomplish that, he created art out of a grim place. After that first tour, he received permission to go back to and take photos in 2013, accompanied by a correctional officer at all times. The images can be viewed on his website, billmcdowellphoto.com.The confining natureThe St. Dismas Church (The Church of the Good Thief) was constructed by the inmates under the supervision of a correctional officer who taught them stone cutting. The prison chaplain then, The Rev. Ambrose Hyland, hired an artist from New York City who taught them how to make stained-glass windows and religious statuaries. The icons include a couple of figures of Mary; a three-dimensional image of St. Dismas on the cross hangs above the front doors. The windows are surprisingly modern; one contains the Beatitude, Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the land. The church building was completed in 1941. Its so easy to view an inmate as the other, and I wanted to do the opposite by making photographs of their gardens, says Mr. McDowell. But I also wanted to show the confining nature of being imprisoned. A couple of photos in this series show red birdhouses attached to chain-link fences inside the prison grounds. When I took that first tour of the prison, the photographer says, I was blown away by the poignancy of the birdhouses; that the houses were built by the inmates, that the birds could fly away. And another name for inmate is yardbird, he adds. The prison is the main industry in the town of Dannemora. Its not on the outskirts, as you might expect, but right in town, with homes and businesses directly across the street. The facilitys white outer wall is massive, imposing and intimidating. I made lots of photographs of the wall, both inside and outside the main wall, Mr. McDowell says. Theres both specific and metaphoric power in the wall. A few images of the wall, shot from outside on the street, show shadows of trees, houses, trucks, people walking by. Theyre like shadow puppets, blurry silhouettes of the town and its inhabitants on a large blank canvas or a drive-in movie screen.About the artistMr. McDowell is a recipient of the 2008 New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Photography and the Aaron Siskind Individual Photographers Fellowship. Hes had solo exhibitions in Los Angeles, New York, Portland and Houston, and his work is represented in collections at the International Museum of Photography at the George Eastman House, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and the Deichtorhallen Museum in Hamburg, Germany. His photographs have appeared in publications such as The New Yorker, Art in America and exposure. In addition to being a professional photographer, hes also a professor in the department of art and art history at the University of Vermont in Burlington. He was initially attracted to photography as a senior in high school. I soon felt a connection to things that I hadnt experienced before, he explains. He works with both digital and film and isnt wedded to any particular camera. I use whatever seems most appropriate at the time, he says. He even did a project Ashes in the Night Sky using a flatbed scanner as an imaging device.His view of the worldMr. McDowell is working on a book that will be published by Daylight Books in 2016. Titled Ground, it consists of killed negatives that he has collected and sequenced from the Farm Security Administration archive in the Library of Congress. The FSA was a New Deal program that, among other things, documented the plight of the American farmer and post-Depression life in the 1930s. Some of Americas most iconic photographs, including Dorothea Langes Migrant Mother, were made for the FSA. Roy Stryker, the director of the FSA photography division, would sometimes take a hole punch to the negatives that he didnt want to be published, Mr. McDowell says. But the damaged negatives remained in the collection. Ive gone through the files and selected photographs in which the black hole from the hole punch has a certain relationship to the rest of the images frame. And Ive further culled the photographs to ones that related to the land and agriculture. My general idea is that our post2008 experience in the U.S. (the Great Recession) shares much with the Great Depression era. The black hole in the photographs in Ground look like a contemporary mark, and thats the visual connection in the pictures between today and the 1930s. Theyre really pretty amazing photographs, especially when you consider that the hole punch was used to destroy them. But its typical of how Mr. McDowell views the world around him. One of my favorite quotes, he says, is from the novelist and poet James Dickey: Poetry occurs when the utmost reality and the utmost strangeness coincide. Thats what I try to do.

Vigstein Books. 252 pages. Paperback, $12.99; Kindle e-book, $4.99. The boys are back. Paul Fly Moscone and Bill Mr. Jinx Shiffman, bantering buddies leading the life of retirement in Punta Gorda, team up in another adventure at once hilarious and dead serious. One would think author Michael Hirsh would have trouble living up to the mixture of fun, local color and serious issues that he mastered in Fly on the Wall (2012), which featured the insurance scandal aftermath of Hurricane Charley, but he proves he is up to the challenge. As a recovering journalist, Jinx spices his retirement with freelance features in a local paper suspiciously named Florida Weekly. Fly, who once sold mainframe computers, is fulfilling his dream of being a law enforcement officer by serving as a volunteer reserve deputy sheriff. Its Chicago and New Jersey, Italian and Jew, in a wonderful dance of being decidedly ethnic in a land of milk and white bread. Strange behavior at a massage parlor finds Fly brushing the hand of a young masseuse away from his private parts (thus the title). After telling his wife about the incident, and being surprised by her encouragement to try to do something about the problem, he gets himself assigned to go undercover in order to collect evidence on sex traffickers. He joins a special Southwest Florida task force headquartered in Fort Myers. Mr. Hirsh provides a detailed portrait of the insidiousness and enormity of this kind of criminal enterprise, as well as the vulnerability of its victims. Part of the information that reaches the reader comes from Flys discussion with Marisol Sotolongo, a tough and beautiful mental-health counselor who has valuable experience in treating young victims of sexual trafficking. Flys undercover stint is successful, but more evidence is needed to catch the pimps who are taking advantage of these young girls. So Fly gets to take part in a stakeout. Along the way, he runs into moral issues connected with the fate of these abused women and their possible children. A session with his priest helps Fly sort matters out and deepens the readers understanding about whats at stake. Especially riveting is the scene in which Fly witnesses Marisols interview with the girl caught (actually, rescued) during his undercover effort. Watching and hearing Marisol conduct the interview, and listening to law enforcement professionals comment on the process, reveals the delicacy and skill needed to illicit anything useful for a future arrest and prosecution. Eventually, Fly and more experienced and salaried law enforcement professionals track down Xavier, the pimp who has been exploiting these girls. They also collect the evidence that allows them to do an extensive, legally sanctioned search of Xaviers residence. Several sex slaves are rescued, including the very one Fly had encountered on the fateful day he went in for an innocent massage. Can girls like this be convinced to testify? Can they, after perhaps years of subjugation, stop living like prisoners once they are rescued? Can they successfully reunite with their families? The novel dramatically probes these and related questions toward the end. While Flys work on this assignment dominates the narrative, the author develops other centers of interest. The deep friendship between Fly and Jinx, their nonstop bouts of verbal oneupsmanship and the ongoing satire of Southwest Florida retirement living provide laughs and sharp perspectives. The citizens rally to defeat a proposed toxic waste landfill reveals a combination of public spirit, vested interest and the simple need to be involved in useful activities once one has left the identity-feeding world of work. Can one blend a serious issue the abduction and sexual enslavement of teenage girls with a comedic element that is true to the lead characters personality and relationships? Yes, Mike Hirsh can. Sarcastic and sassy, sensitive and sympathetic, Fly Unzipped successfully performs a delicate tonal balancing act. These complementary moods echo Mr. Hirshs delightful technique of alternating sharply contrasting narrators, giving distinctive first person loquaciousness to Jinx and Fly in turn. Fly Unzipped provides a lot of laughs, but at bottom its no joke. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. d la fi m (t ab philJASONpkjason@comcast.net HIRSH

Marco Players present Shooting StarThe Marco Players present Shooting Star, a romantic comedy set in an airport where two former college lovers are snowed in and have an unexpected reunion. Elena (Carol Comeau) has stayed true to her hippie-ish, counter-culture path, while Reed (Andrew Ciliberto) has gone predictably corporate and conservative. As the night gives way to laughter and banter, they revisit a past that holds more surprises than they imagined and a present that neither of them could have predicted. Dont we all have someone we wish we could meet again if only for a short time? asks director Greg Madera. Written by Steven Dietz in 2008, Shooting Star is charming, endearing and not far removed from reality. See it Aug. 6-23 at The Marco Players Theater, 1089 N. Collier Blvd. Shows are at 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets for $25 are available at the box office or by calling 642-7270 or visiting themarcoplayers.com.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 23-29, 2015 ARTS COMMENTARY Oh, my God, you guys! Legally Blonde is at the Sugden!!!If the thought of seeing Legally Blonde, the Musical makes you squeal like a pre-teen girl, the odds are pretty good youre going to love the show being presented by The Naples Players through Aug. 9 at the Sugden Community Theatre. If you prefer your shows to have a little more substance to them, well, then, your mileage might vary. The musical is based on the 2001 movie of the same name starring Reese Witherspoon. Elle Woods (Paige Raleigh), a ditzy blonde sorority girl, decides to go to Harvard Law School in order to win back her boyfriend, Warner. (She thought he was going to propose, but instead he broke things off because he wants someone more serious.) Elle, who lives in Malibu and has her degree in fashion merchandising from UCLA, decides to get into Harvard Law School to a.) show Warner just how serious she can be and b.) persuade him to return to her side. Its a ridiculous premise but then, musicals have been built on much less. But Legally Blonde, the Musical demands such massive suspension of disbelief at times that it can be hard to swallow. Just like Elle Woods, it desires, deeply, to be taken seriously, with its messages of: looks can be deceiving, but they really matter in the end, and believe in yourself and women should stand in solidarity with other women. But its just so mindless and squeally and pink!In some ways, its a smart choice for The Naples Players to make for their annual summer musical. It demands a cast of thousands, its full of youthful characters (so they can cast older KidzAct actors) and its extremely popular with younger theatergoers (who tend not to be that discriminating). In other ways, its a puzzling choice, because Sugden audiences tend to skewer older, and frankly, its just not that good a show. Musicals based upon movies dont always make a good transition. The Full Monty is an exception. Many, unfortunately, turn out like Footloose and Saturday Night Fever. Legally Blonde, the Musical falls somewhere in the middle. As already mentioned, the book (by Heather Hach, based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the MGM movie) strains credulity, even within the world it creates. The music and the lyrics (by Laurence OKeefe and Nell Benjamin) are not top-notch. The music, for the most part, is forgettable, though the lyrics, from time to time, do show some humor and even flashes of brilliance. Ms. Raleigh is successful as the lead, making us cheer her on even as we see that her goal is misguided. In a nice piece of colorblind casting (and in reflection of the 21st century dating scene), Warner, who spurns her, is played by Christopher Campbell. (We remember seeing him years ago as a little tyke in a Naples Players production of Oliver! picking pockets for the evil Fagin.) Mr. Campbell, now a young man in college himself, plays Warner with suave self-centeredness, but not so much so that we hate him. When Elle gets to Harvard Law School (yes, she actually gets accepted!) she discovers Warner has a new girlfriend, Vivienne (Skye Marie Sena). And gee, law schools so much harder than she expected it would be. Emmett (Joseph Byrne), a scruffy, good-hearted student whos had to struggle for everything hes ever gotten, takes a shine to her and helps her study. Her sorority sisters show up from time to time to comment on the action because it is, as Elle says, a tragedy. This quartet of leads is made of strong performers. But its the shows secondary or incidental characters who stood out for me. Debi Guthery plays a sweet and kindhearted hairdresser who befriends Elle. If theres anything Ms. Guthery knows how to do, its belt out a song and get some laughs by embodying a humorous character. And she doesnt fail here. The night I attended, she actually received cheers along with sustained applause. Lederian Townsend, who works as director of bands at Lely High School, won me over with his performance as a Harvard admissions official and then as a flamboyant gay man whose lover is giving testimony in a trial. His performance was Broadway-worthy. And Brandon Somers, as Nikos, his boyfriend perjuring himself on the stand, preens as proudly as any peacock. Randall Kenneth Jones does a good job as the evil law professor who, like any good shark, loves blood in the water. And everyone adored the shows two dogs, Bruiser (played by Twoey Dunnagan-Walck) and Rufus (played by Diesel Ruhl). Unfortunately, they didnt make the curtain call. Director and choreographer Dawn Lebrecht Fornara has done an excellent job with this oversized cast, getting clear enunciation, high energy and good dance moves out of them all. Ms. Fornara mixes some hip-hop into the theatrical dancing, though at times there seems to be an overabundance of twerking and pelvis thrusts. (Its not anything you wouldnt see on a music video, but Id think twice about bringing a young child to see the show.) Mark Santos sets are impressive, too. Elles sorority house looks just like an oversized Barbie dollhouse. The sound was crisp and clear, thanks to Bradley Van Houten. But the show itself! Groan. Legally Blonde makes Wicked look as deep as Sondheim in comparison. The Valley Girl-speaking, full-ofthemselves, mindless sorority sisters are hard to take for more than a couple of minutes. Listening to them is like being stuck at a pre-teen sleepover, with no way to control the volume or temper the hysterics. The shows message is confusing too: Looks dont matter, but yeah, maybe they do, because they help get Elle into law school and be picked as an intern on a law team. And they help Emmett be taken more seriously, because hes so poor he couldnt afford a decent (read: expensive) suit. For the most part, Ms. Fornara keeps the action moving along quickly, though at times the show seems overly long. Is Legally Blonde good theater? No. Do The Naples Players put on a good show? Yes. But like pink cotton candy, its spun sugar and mostly air nothing much of substance, but tasty and overly sweet, at least while it lasts. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Legally Blonde, the Musical>> When: Through Aug. 9 >> Where: The Sugden Community Theatre, Naples >> Cost: $40 ($10 for students 21 and younger) >> Info: 263-7990 or naplesplayers.org DREW ATTANASIO / COURTESY PHOTOA Harvard Law School classroom scene has Professor Callahan (Randall Kenneth Jones, center) ready to call on an eager Elle Wood s (Paige Raleigh) for her analysis of a mock scenario.

PLEASE RSVP TO 239.494.4441 CONTRACT BRIDGEBY STEVE BECKERA player seldom gains by making an opening bid out of turn, but here is a case where the offender reaped a rich harvest. East was the dealer, but South opened the bidding with one heart before East had a chance to act. The Laws of bridge specifically cover this irregularity. The out-of-turn bid is canceled, and the player whose turn it was to call may then open the bidding or pass. Subsequent penalties may apply, depending mostly on the action taken by the player whose turn it was to call in the first place. In this case, East elected to open with four diamonds. South, aware that his partner, in accordance with the Laws, would have to pass at his first turn to bid, boldly bid four hearts, which West of course doubled. Everybody passed, and West led the king of clubs. It is true, in a sense, that West had five trump tricks and East had three diamond tricks. But despite that, South wound up making the contract! He won the club lead with the ace and played a trump to dummys ace, learning that West had all seven missing trumps. South then cashed four spade tricks, discarding his remaining club as West helplessly followed suit. After ruffing a club at trick seven, Souths last six cards were the K-J-9 of trumps and 10-7-3 of diamonds, while West held the Q-10-87-6-5 of trumps. Declarer now led a diamond, forcing West to ruff and return a trump to Souths K-J-9. Declarer then led another diamond, forcing West to ruff and lead still another trump to Souths K-J. The lasting effect of the deal was that South vowed not to tempt fate ever again by bidding out of turn, while poor West promised to be a little more cautious with his penalty doubles in the future!

This is more found footage horror nonsense, made worse by the fact that the characters are unlikeable. Rated R.Infinitely Polar Bear (Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana, Imogene Wolodarsky) A manic depressive father (Mr. Ruffalo) cares for his two daughters (Ms. Wolodarsky and Ashley Aufderheide) near Boston while his wife/their mother (Ms. Saldana) attends graduate school in New York City. Mr. Ruffalo gives a fantastic performance in this wonderful drama, based in part on writer/director Maya Forbes father. Rated R.Amy (Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Tony Bennett) This documentary about singer/ songwriter Amy Winehouse, who died of alcohol poisoning in July 2011, is a sad story of addiction and poor decisions. You feel bad for Ms. Winehouses affliction, but the movie doesnt provide much reason to see it for anyone whos not already a fan. Rated R.Terminator: Genisys (Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Arnold Schwarzenegger) John Connor (Mr. Clarke) sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back in time to protect Johns mother (Ms. Clarke). This is not just a standard redo of James Camerons The Terminator (1984). Although the story is quite clever, the action is disappointingly underwhelming. Rated PG-13.Magic Mike XXL (Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Jada Pinkett Smith) Three years after Mike (Mr. Tatum) leaves the stripper life behind, he reunites with his boys for one last show at a stripper convention in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Its uneven but ultimately satisfying in terms of showmanship and story. Rated R.The Overnight (Adam Scott, Taylor Schilling, Jason Schwartzman) New to Los Angeles, Alex (Mr. Scott) and Emily (Ms. Schilling) accept a dinner invitation from bohemian Kurt (Mr. Schwartzman), not realizing the awkwardness that lies ahead. Its an interesting idea, but the inability to balance comedy and drama inhibits the film from strongly making its points. Rated R.Ted 2 (Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, voice of Seth MacFarlane) Ted (Mr. MacFarlane) and Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth) are married and want to adopt, but need a lawyer (Ms. Seyfried) to prove Ted is a real person before they can do so. This sequel to the 2012 hit is funnier and a better overall movie than its predecessor, which is saying something. Rated R.Max (Robbie Amell, Lauren Graham, Thomas Haden Church) A Texas family welcomes in the Belgian Malinois dog that accompanied their now-deceased Marine Corps son in Afghanistan, but people around the family cause trouble. Sappy and sentimental, it belongs on the Hallmark Channel, not the big screen. Rated PG.

YesOn paper, Cartel Land appears to have a straightforward and compelling premise: The documentary tells the dual stories of a vigilante group in Mexico that fights drug cartels, and of a paramilitary group near the Arizona/Mexico border that strives to keep Mexican drugs (and drug wars) out of the United States. But as with most worthwhile docs, there are layers to the story that contain surprising revelations. With both groups wanting the same thing i.e., to fight and eradicate the prevalence of drugs and drug culture in their community one would think the operational bedfellows would have more in common. What we get instead is an insightful look at two groups that are on the right side of morality but that openly embrace amoral methods to reach their goals. At times you wonder if the people trying to stop the cartels are actually more reprehensible than the cartels themselves, which is shocking and yet, when you consider the circumstances, not. One thing the two vigilante groups share is a call to action due to ineffective government intervention. In the Mexican state of Michoacn, Dr. Jose Mireles leads the Autodefensas, a group of citizens fighting against the Knights Templar drug cartel that has wreaked havoc on the region for years. Dr. Mireles knows he and his family are at risk, but he feels obligated to protect those who are otherwise endangered by the cartels. Youd think the Autodefensas would be peaceful people because theyre trying to keep everyone safe, so its surprising when they go to new towns to offer protection and are rejected, with citizens saying they cause more trouble than theyre worth. Meanwhile, in Arizonas Altar Valley a narrow, 52-mile-long desert corridor veteran Tim Nailer Foley heads a small paramilitary group called Arizona Border Recon. At first the group was formed to keep illegal immigrants out, but the drug wars took precedent and Mr. Foley hasnt relented one bit. As with Dr. Mireles, if there were a strong government-led border patrol Mr. Foley wouldnt have to do what he does, but hes so morally appalled by the cartels he feels he has no choice. Whats especially fascinating in Cartel Land is the access producer/ director Matthew Heineman received from both groups, each of which allowed him and his camera into meetings, shootouts, private moments and shakedowns that are usually only seen in cop dramas. Knowing its real and presumably not staged adds a palpable tension that lifts the story to the level of a thriller, especially because this is reality playing out on screen and Hollywoods happy endings have no place here. In the end, Cartel Land is a sad story because of the futility of it all. Although we repeatedly see the human flaws of the vigilantes, what sticks with you is the inevitable reality each group faces no matter how hard they try. It will also make you reconsider what exactly is good and evil in your worldview, and what lines youll condone being blurred in the name of justice. >> Producer/director Matt Heineman received both the Directing Award and the Special Jury Award for Cinematography in the U.S. Documentary competition at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival p k t a c a dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com

Set in 1935, Somethings Afoot spoofs the classic detective story. The cast is a set of British stock characters typically found in the works of Agatha Christie. The Naples Players seek a unique company of inventive and fearless actors with strong comedic abilities. A British accent is a plus (two characters have a cockney accent). There are roles for six men (four ages 30-65 and two ages 20-40) and four women (two ages 20-35 and two ages 40-65). Audition appointments are required. Those trying out should prepare 32 bars of music and come with sheet music (an accompanist will be provided) or digital music without vocals. Callbacks will be at noon Saturday, Aug. 8. Rehearsals begin Aug. 24, and performances will be Oct. 14-Nov. 8. Perusal scripts are available at the box office with a $20 deposit. For more information or to set an appointment, call 434-7340, ext. 10. Coming soon, The Naples Players 2015-16 seasonThe Naples Players have assembled a compelling combination of plays and musicals for the 2015-16 season that reflects a mix of mystery, drama, music and comedy. Somethings Afoot, with book, music and lyrics by James McDonald, David Vos and Robert Gerlach, and additional music by Ed Linderman, kicks things off on the main stage at the Sugden Community Theatre Oct. 14-Nov. 8. Its a zany spoof of detective stories in which a series of guests are picked off one by one by clever and comically fiendish devices, leaving the audience trying to deduce, whodunit? Rebecca Gilmans provocative drama Spinning into Butter opens the new season in the intimate Tobye Studio at the Sugden Oct. 28-Nov. 21. Students and administration alike are forced to confront their feelings on racism when an African American student at Belmont College begins receiving racist hate mail. What they discover is not at all what they expected. The Foreigner by Larry Shue takes the main stage Nov. 25-Dec. 20. When pathologically shy Charlie joins his friend Froggy for a much-needed getaway, he dreads having to converse with people he doesnt know. The solution? Tell everyone hes from an exotic foreign country and does not speak English. The result? An outrageous comedy in which deep secrets and diabolical plans are revealed. Other Desert Cities by Jon Robin Baitz follows on the main stage Jan. 13-Feb. 7. The Wyeth family appears to have it all, but their carefully crafted facade is on the verge of shattering when daughter Brooke reveals the impending publication of her tell-all memoir. With crackling wit and razor-sharp one-liners, this new American play is a funny, searing and thought provoking presentation. Rated R for language. Back in the Tobye Studio, The 39 Steps will be presented Feb. 3-27. The farcical thriller/comedy by Patrick Barlow and John Buchan follows the madcap adventures of Richard Hannay, who is completely bored with life until he meets a mysterious female spy who ends up murdered in his apartment. Four actors play dozens of campy characters. Young Frankenstein, a musical with book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, music and lyrics by Mel Brooks, and original direction and choreography by Susan Stroman, comes to life on the main stage March 2-April 3. The electrifying comedy follows Dr. Frederick Frankenstein, his beguiling lab assistant Inga, his hunchbacked sidekick Igor, his fianc Elizabeth and the enigmatic Frau Blucher as they succeed in bringing a monster to life but not without dangerous and often hilarious consequences. A Sleeping Country, a clever and thoughtful comedy by Melanie Marnich, is on tap for the Tobye Studio March 23-April 16. Julia is plagued by chronic insomnia. When she discovers that it could be a very rare and even fatal prognosis, she travels to Venice for answers. What she learns on her journey awakens her to more than she ever expected to discover. This one begs the question: Are we sleeping through life, or are we truly awake? To end the main stage season, The Naples Players present The Dixie Swim Club April 20-May 15. Enduring friendships are at the heart of this endearing and witty comedy about five very different women who met on their college swim team reconnect every year to laugh, reminisce and meddle in each others lives. Subscription packages are on sale now, and individual tickets go on sale in September. For more information, call 263-7990 or visit naplesplayers.org.

KOVEL: ANTIQUES Weathervane history points in creative direction BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELThe most famous American weathervane is the grasshopper that topped Faneuil Hall in Boston in 1742. Early weathervanes of the 1800s often had a cow, horse or eagle. But as more manufacturers started making decorative outdoor iron furniture, unexpected figures appeared in rooftop weathervanes. Indians, angels, Columbia, the State of Liberty and soldiers were popular. So were birds roosters, pheasants, ducks and peacocks fish, and even a dragon. By the end of the 19th century, a weathervane often had a dual purpose. It indicated the direction of the wind and identified the use of the building from a rooftop pole. There were fire pumpers with horse and firemen, locomotives and streetcars with motormen. There was less need for weathervanes in the 1900s, but they still were popular rooftop decorations. In 1923, Yankee Stadium had a baseball bat weathervane, while a famous grocery chain used an arrow with A & P marked on the feathers. The Howard Johnson chain weathervanes had a boy, chef, dog, lantern and lamplighter on the appropriate restaurants, motor lodges and combinations of buildings, and Colonel Sanders was on the roof of many Kentucky Fried Chicken stops. Weathervanes of all ages are very popular with collectors. Early folk-art examples bring thousands of dollars each, and more modern trademark examples sell for $500 to $800. But beware: Many modern copies have been made. A copper girl playing tennis (Victorian Love) topped an early 20th-century weathervane that sold for $6,000. A zinc 1920s vane with the same figure but 6 inches shorter sold for about $3,000. A recent copy of the girl made of copper with a patina sells for $1,595. Q: I have a desk that I believe is called a Boston Spinet. It has one long drawer and a top that folds back to reveal a fitted interior. The manufacturer's label on the bottom of the drawer reads, H.E. Shaw Furniture Company, Grand Rapids, Michigan. Its quite faded on the back and sides from sun exposure. I think it would be better if it was refinished, but my daughter feels it shouldn't be refinished. If its not a valuable piece, it would be more useful and beautiful if refinished. What is your opinion and idea of its value? A: H.E. Shaw Furniture Co. was in business in Grand Rapids, Mich., from 1919 to 1933. The company made Colonial and European Revival desks, secretaries and dining-room furniture. Because of the sun damage, your desk is worth only about $200 to $300. If you plan to keep it, you should refinish it and enjoy it. A desk in good refin-

Q: I have a figurine, 4 inches tall, of a rabbit in a ruffled blue apron. It is holding a Jell-O salad on a plate. A banner on the bottom reads, A Jell-O salad makes a meal. I would appreciate any history and the value. A: Jell-O was born in 1897, when Pearle Bixby Waite, a carpenter and medicine maker in LeRoy, N.Y., trademarked a gelatin dessert. He and his wife, May, added either lemon, orange, raspberry or strawberry flavors to granulated gelatin and sugar and named the product Jell-O. In 1899, Mr. Waite sold the product and name for $450 to Orator Woodward's Genessee Pure Food Co. He changed the company name to Jell-O Co. by 1923. Housewives liked it and it sold well. In 1925, the company was sold for $67 million to Postum Cereal Co., one of the first mergers that led to General Foods Corp. Jell-O was aggressively advertised in newspapers, radio and television. By the 1950s, cookbooks and womens magazines were filled with recipes for Jell-O relishes, salads and entrees as well as desserts. General Foods had figurines based on its advertising to give away to its top 3,000 dealers. The figurines were made by Sebastian Miniatures of Marblehead, Mass. Your 1954 figurine was made to go with a print ad featuring a similar rabbit and read, When Im eating Jell-O I wish I were a rabbit, because then I could enjoy my favorite vegetables in a glamorous Jell-O Salad! The figurine sells for $200 to $400 and is among the most valuable Jell-O collectibles. Tip: Dust frequently if you live near the seashore. Salt air causes problems.

CELEBRITY EXTRASupergirl premieres Oct. 26 on CBS BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: I saw previews for the new Supergirl series, and the lead actress looks so familiar to me. Who is she? Katie K., Naples, Fla.A: Melissa Benoist is best known, so far, for her work on Glee, where she played sweet ingnue Marley from 2012-14. The multitalented 27-year-old was dating her Glee co-star, Blake Jenner (who played Ryder), until March of this year which is when the couple secretly tied the knot. The news of the nuptials came to light mid-July, when Melissa was spotted at Comic-Con in San Diego, where she was promoting Supergirl, with a wedding band on her finger. Supergirl, which premieres Oct. 26 on CBS, centers on Melissas character, Kara Zor-El, a cousin of Superman who was taken in by the Danvers family when she was 12 after being sent away from Krypton and must learn to embrace her powers after previously hiding them. The series also features Calista Flockhart, Dean Cain (of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman), Helen Slater (who played Supergirl in the 1984 film), Peter Facinelli, Mehcad Brooks and David Harewood. Q: When will Adam Sandlers Ridiculous Six will be in theaters? Leonard F., via emailA: It wont be in theaters, Leonard. And thats not because of recent uproar over some politically incorrect humor in the movie. The film is the first of four Netflix-only comedies Mr. Sandler is developing exclusively for the onlinestreaming network. The film, which is a sendup up Westerns, will hit the streaming service on Dec. 11. Some more Netflix-original films include Judd Apatow and Paul Ruebens Pee-wees Big Holiday, which will air on Netflix in March 2016, and Beasts of No Nation, which is being released concurrently on Netflix and in theaters on Oct. 16. Beasts is based on Uzodinma Iwealas 2005 novel about a child soldier conscripted by mercenaries in an unnamed West African country. Idris Elba stars. Q: I heard that Rosie Perez is leaving The View. Is that true? Gigi T., via emailA: Rosie will leave the daytime talkfest after one season as co-host. Her last original airdate is Aug. 6, which is also the final original show of the series 18th season. When The View returns in September, comedian/comedy journalist Michelle Collins will be in Rosies veat. Returning to dissect and discuss the news are Whoopi Goldberg and RavenSymon. As of this writing, there was no news about whether Nicolle Wallace will return. The show is said to be tinkering with the idea of making a rotation of guest co-hosts a permanent feature.

Her chicken, red wattle pork, Everglades tomatoes and mint marigold will be among the ingredients the chefs use to craft their hors doeuvres and six courses.

Mr. Aielli has experience at Beard dinners from his days as a top chef in Washington, D.C., but this is his first return trip since he relocated to Naples and opened Sea Salt. Im very excited to be able to go and have fun and have people understand that they can come to Southwest Florida for really good food, he says. Mr. Aielli will serve a savory Murray River Salt macaroon with Florida spiny lobster and foie gras as his hors doeuvre. His plated course will consist of Pine Island octopus ink ravioli stuffed with Rosy Tomorrows pastured chicken, white truffle, homemade ricotta, Venus clam ragu and liquid egg yolk. Although many people consider chicken a ho-hum protein, Mr. Aielli intends to show them otherwise. I want to show what can be done with a simple chicken, he says. You roast it and all the fat is removed and stuff the ravioli. We steam the clams on the chicken. The Venus claim sauce, the sweet raisin tomatoes and white truffle complement the ravioli. The clams with the chicken are absolutely wonderful. Mr. Johnson will prepare the evenings pork dishes. Ill do a succulent miso belly as the first element, he says, a second of mint marigold saltimbocca tenderloin and a third of pig shoulder confit with butternu t squash. All will be on one plate. For his pre-dinner canap, he plans a savory sesame cone topped with red wattle pork rillettes and mascarpone mousse. Im really excited to work with this group of chefs, Mr. Johnson says. Its a true veteran chefs crew. Mr. Balinks starter will be Rosy Tomorrows chicken pate and port gelee with a plated course of pan-seared black grouper, Rosy Tomorrows Everglades tomatoes, crispy oyster and c onch-orange butter. Florida red shrimp spaghetti with red lettuce puree and Sarasota Mote sturgeon caviar is Mr. Fistrovichs contribution to the hors doeuvres. His plated course: Jackman Ranch beef cheeks, barbecued hearts of palm, charred corn cloud in the flavors of esquite (a Northern Mexican dish), boniato and preserved chop box cabbage leaves. The father-and-son Love team will create a pre-dessert of chilled Florida strawberry consomm, crme fraiche panna cotta and lemon basil macaron glace, paying homage to the fruits of Florida while keeping it light and refreshing, Norman Love says. Then it will be all about chocolate for dessert, he adds about the final course called the Bittersweet Chocolate and Tropical Experience. With a limit of 80 diners, most people wont be able to attend the dinner in New York, but the chefs are considering re-creating the meal locally afterward, most likely as a fundraiser for a Southwest Florida charity. They will be able to show video of the New York dinner at the event for an added taste of the real thing. Tickets for the Beard dinner are expected to go on sale Aug. 1.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 23-29, 2015 C25 The Dish: 16-piece box o donuts The Price: $20 The Place: Peace, Love and Little Donuts 3106 Tamiami Trail The Hours: 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily The Details: Very occasionally, I get a hankering for a doughnut. Im not one of those who drool at the thought of sweet fried dough, but I can understand the appeal. At heart, Im a purist who prefers an unadorned circle of golden sweetness, and if Im feeling really indulgent, I might choose some simple glaze. I do not work with those people. I brought in a box to share with my colleagues, and before I got my camera out to photograph it for this piece, two were already missing and a line had formed to pick off the rest. Thank goodness, because if I had to take them home there would be a feeding frenzy at the kitchen table before dinner. I chose a plain doughnut and a spicy Mexican chocolate doughnut and didnt regret it. Fortunately, they are just small enough to hit the spot and not leave you feeling guilty about starting your day with a treat. One more thing: Among the other flavors we tried were Key Lime Pie, Salted Caramel with Pink Himalayan Sea Salt, Fruity Pebble, Maple Bacon, Cherry Cheesecake and Strawberry Shortcake.

Serious flavor.@ Happening agavenaples /AgaveNaples AgaveNaples NaplesAgave # The perfect complement to our big flavors. VINOIn the mood for MoldovaOne of the most fascinating things about the world of wine is that it well, covers the world. Example: I guess we can be excused if we cant instantly find the country of Moldova on a map (its sandwiched between Romania to the east and Ukraine, just off the Black Sea), but we recently received some sample wines from there, and guess what? Theyre worth a sip. And a second. To have a viable wine industry, a country needs a stable central government, an institution which had been sadly lacking in that area until fairly recently. But now winemakers are free to take advantage of their soils and climate and bring some interesting and previously unknown varietals to the market. Moldova has more than 275,000 acres of land under vine, so its not exactly new at this, and its cultivating both familiar international grapes and some that are very indigenous. We sampled the Asconi Feteasca 2014 and were pleasantly rewarded. This grape grows as both a white and a red, but our enjoyment came from the white. Its a light straw color with aromas of fruits and flowers, mainly white peach. The palate is sour apple, jasmine and a nice zingy acidity. We liked it. WW 89.The other BordeauxOn the east side of the Gironde River, or the Right Bank, there are several wellknown appellations, including St. Emilion and Pomerol. But some growers from lesser-known areas deserve recognition, and they know it. So theyve banded together to create an overall brand for wines that come from areas such as Castillon (southeast of St. Emilion) and the areas of Bourg and Blaye, directly across the river from Margaux. Sure, we all think of the famous grand cru wines such as Lafite, Petrus and others, but there are bargains and great taste experiences to be found in many, many other areas. Here are some of our recent discoveries. Chteau Moulin de Clotte Castillon 2010 This blend of 90 percent Merlot and 10 percent Cabernet Franc gives off a nose of earth and minerals, followed by flavors dark earth and black fruit. A bit tannic, so needs time or a good decanting. WW 89-90 Chteau Roland La Garde Blaye Ctes de Bordeaux 2010 Earth and smoke on the nose with flavors that are very true to type. Unmistakably a Bordeaux. Made in a lighter style, its ready to drink today. WW 90 Chteau de Francs Les Cerisiers Ctes de Bordeaux 2009 In French, cerisiers means cherry blossoms. The wine is well named. Inky black in the glass, it certainly offers aromas of dark cherry. On the palate, the black cherry pays off with just a hint of oak. Another blend of mostly Merlot, its still tannic and needs time or food. WW 90-91Unfindable winesWere painfully aware that some of the wines we review may not be available locally, but theyre all worth the search. Even though I like to support my local wine merchants, and I always look around here first, you might consider visiting wine-searcher.com. This website gives you a list of retailers that have your wine in stock. Click on their link, order online, and theyll deliver it right to your home or office. Hint: if you order now, ask them to hold your purchase for delivery in October or November, when the weather cools off.Ask the Wine WhispererWere seeing a lot of arguments in print about wine bottles sealed with corks vs. screw tops. Which is better? Jim M., North Fort MyersThis is an argument that probably will never subside. Cork is, after all, an organic product the bark of a certain type of oak tree. It breaks down over time, and worst of all, is subject to a fungus called TCA that robs the wine of its freshness or spoils it completely. Screw caps (the makers would prefer that we call them twistoffs), seal a bottle completely, and most likely can last forever. Volumes have been written on this topic, but Id say that wines youre planning on drinking over the next few years are perfectly fine with a twist off. The more expensive wines will likely still be sealed with corks, at least for the immediate future. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 23-29, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 CUISINEFish Crazy reels em in with friendly service, boatload of fish and funIm willing to bet you have never dined at a restaurant that offers an indoor bocce court. Cant say I had, either until my recently visit to Fish Crazy, the establishment that has taken over the space that was once Naples Tomato. Where the former restaurant was stylish and sleek, Fish Crazy is casual and campy, with the aforementioned court, funky nautical art (and an inexplicable but colorful print of a cow) on distressed wood walls, metal-topped tables and a video saltwater aquarium along the back wall. This is the creation of Randy Essig, formerly of Randys Fishmarket, and partner Tony Valego. Mr. Essig was visible throughout the meal, stopping at tables to chat and keeping an eye on the operation. Blu Sushi has also set up shop within the restaurant, so you can settle in at the sushi bar and eat your fill of the chains top-notch sushi or order just a bit for an appetizer, as we did. Theres also a large seafood market attached to the restaurant, which assures that there is plenty of fish over which to go crazy. It was happy hour when we arrived, and well drinks were $5. My generic bloody Mary arrived in a large glass with three big green olives, a crisp stalk of celery and a wedge of lemon. It was spicy, cold and refreshing. My companion skipped the house wine special in favor of the Ferrari Carano fume blanc at a reasonable $6 a glass. We were seated at a booth on the far side of the restaurant near the sushi bar and away from the main concentration of tables. If you seek a somewhat quieter experience, Id recommend this section. For a more boisterous evening, the other side will do the trick. While its hard to make generalizations from one item, we found the Summer Nights ($14.95) sushi roll to be as good as any of the items weve sampled at the Fort Myers and Estero branches of Blu. It began with a tempura fried shrimp that was covered with avocado, diced jalapeno, sushi rice spicy krab salad, sesame seeds, scallions, smelt roe and a drizzle of eel sauce. There were lots of different textures and flavors that melded well. Moving on to Fish Crazys offerings, we sampled a cup of Florida clam chowder ($5), which could have been warmer but was creamy and full of plump clams and potatoes. The fried calamari ($10) was crisp and hot, not greasy, and came with a cup of warm and flavorful marinara. This was a very good rendition of this ubiquitous appetizer. Salads, included with all entrees, were small but good, nicely chilled and accompanied by cups of dressing. The blue cheese dressing had large, tasty lumps of cheese. I found the ginger-soy a bit too sweet for my taste. Shrimp and grits ($15) and panroasted salmon ($25) won out from among the many seafood items available as entrees. Although the descriptions of both dishes looked great, the execution fell short. The salmon was nicely roasted and sat atop a mound of bok choy and shiitake mushrooms. The problem was that the dish had way too much ginger vinaigrette, which made it more like a soup and difficult to eat. The shrimp and grits contained sauted shrimp that were nicely cooked but unremarkable, as though they werent seasoned. The chorizo added some life but not enough to flavor the very mild sauce and the bland grits. This dish needs some bold seasoning to make it work, and this version didnt have that. Dinner ended with a complimentary slice of Randys signature Key lime pie, a creamy and more-sweet-than-tart version with a solid crust and a dollop of whipped topping for good measure. I enjoyed the Blu Sushi roll and our appetizers. Were I to return, I think Id try something more straightforward the fish and chips, perhaps, or blackened shrimp or scallops. From the appearance of dishes arriving at other tables, these looked good. Service throughout our meal was attentive and friendly. Our server delivered courses in a timely manner but without piling one course on top of the one before it. She made sure we had enough to drink, and a conscientious server attendant was at the ready whenever dishes needed to be cleared. Fish Crazy also offers private dining in its wine room (at a table that seats eight) and is in the process of creating a chefs table in the room that used to house the mozzarella making classes at Naples Tomato. While I wasnt crazy about everything I ate, theres plenty to like about Fish Crazy and many reasons why the place is reeling in customers at a steady pace.
