While youre scaling the rugged mountains of Kandahar province and cursing those blasted barbecue shredded-beef MREs in your rucksack again, your mind takes respite in the thought of bobbing on Southwest Floridas sparkling, briny waters and reeling in the big one next to your brothers.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 17-23, 2015 Bring Your Highest Expectations LIVINGSTON ROADPINE RIDGE ROAD EXIT 107WHIPPORWILL LANE N COMMENTARYGoin on a bear huntI cant wait for the Florida bear hunt finally to get underway next month. For too long now, two decades in the Sunshine State, people who live in gated communities surrounded by large shopping malls have made decisions about living outside of those gates that deeply inhibit the rest of us. In short, theyve elected politicians who appointed prissy little wildlife managers who in turn created ridiculous rules requiring those of us who love to kill things to act like them. If we wanted to go toe-to-toe with a bear or more accurately, if we wanted to go .30-06or rocket launcher-to-toe with those deadly wielders of tooth and claw they claimed we shouldnt. They claimed the bears were endangered, or they have a right to live here, or some other clap-trap. But fortunately, Gov. Rick Scott, along with his Republican administration and Republican legislature, many of them hunters themselves, arent having any of it. Thats why the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission refuses to condone perfumey prescriptions for politically correct restraint that many anti-hunters insist on for the rest of us. Instead, theyre issuing an unlimited number of permits at $100 for staties or $300 for outsiders to people who want to hunt our black bears. The bears themselves probably number, at most, about 3,000 (although last year state wildlife officials were saying black bears numbered about 2,000, which means theyve revised their count upward by a third, just in time for bear season). Florida once had roughly 20,000 bears, biologists now estimate. But no matter how many there are, I think there are too many. Whats the point of a bear in modern society? Theyre just charity cases. Taxpayers have to support both wildlife officials and habitat, and therefore the bears themselves. They dont pay taxes, they refuse to learn English and they use up our resources. Worst of all, were prohibited from shooting them if they eat our garbage, or our cows or corn, or even if they eat our children (in such cases, state officials would shoot them). Some people would probably pay bears handsomely for the latter service, the eating of children, but they wont have a chance because the bears will soon be dead. As of mid-August, the state sold 1,340 permits. More have been issued since then, and hunters have until Oct. 23 to buy permits. Inexplicably, however, state officials say theyre allowing only 320 bears to be harvested. I figure they recognize how woefully inadequate to the task many hunters are, so they estimate something on the order of 10 percent will come home with a bear especially because hunters are not allowed to use dogs or bait, or kill bears weighing under 100 pounds. And by the way, officials are figuring that 0 percent of the bears will come home with a hunter. Therein lies my single criticism of Gov. Scott and the legislators and FWC officials who condone this bear hunt. They havent taken it far enough. They havent made it real enough, which suggests to me they havent thought enough about the hunting theyve done, themselves (many of them claim to be hunters, and have heads on their walls to prove it). For one thing, man-or-womanagainst-beast creates an atavistic tension in both hunter and the hunted that produces reverence. Its a reverence for life, pure and simple. For the hunter, the tension ultimately becomes joy. For the hunted, not so much. Since joy is in such short supply, Im disappointed in the state managers and politicians who support this hunt for limiting the number of bears to be killed to a mere 320. But theyve also missed an opportunity to let us 21st-century Americans sip from the chalice of joy in ways we havent since the 18th or 19th centuries. So here is my prescription: Next years hunt should have no limit on the number of bears who can be killed. If we can kill all of them, more power and joy to us. But the 2016 hunt should also be pure: Hunters should be limited not just to no dogs or bait, but to no rifles, shotguns, handguns, black powder muskets or compound bows. To maximize the joy of the hunt officials should condone, instead, a wide range of more traditional hunting weapons: spears, for example, along with atlatls, the tool used by Calusa Indians to accelerate the velocity and increase the range of their spears. For the most part, they probably werent dumb enough to hunt bears, but never mind that now. Knives, hatchets, clubs, rocks, slingshots (good luck with that), sharpened stakes or bare hands. And the season should last a lot longer than the end-of-October week now penciled in for the bear hunt of 2015. I think the 2016 hunt should last until Christmas, in part because it will take wildlife officials that long to find the chewed up remains of some of the hunters a boot with a foot in it, for example, or a few unfinished rib bones, or maybe a torn hunting jacket with part of an arm in it. With almost 20 million people in the state, a little population control might not be a bad thing. After all, thats how state wildlife officials are looking at it for bears. And there are only 3,000 of them, probably about 2,000 actually sitting up, breathing and taking nourishment. Itll be a real howl, that 2016 hunt. Either that or a real growl. n o w b y i roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

His rise suggests that its possible to catch the populist wave roiling Republican politics and yet not be an obnoxious braggart. Ben Carson is a superior outsider to Donald Trump.He is more gentlemanly and more conservative, with a more compelling life story. He is a man of faith who, despite his manifest accomplishments, has a quiet dignity and winsome modesty about him. Ben Carson is a throwback, whereas Donald Trump is a boldfaced name straight out of our swinish celebrity culture.What they have in common is that they are political neophytes who are memorable communicators precisely because they speak and carry themselves so differently from other candidates. The similarities stop there.Carson aced the Fox debate when in his closing statement he didnt puff himself up and attempt to soar like candidates always do, but gently said a few nice things about his background as a surgeon, with a touch of humor. It was a hit. If you like your outsider not to favor higher taxes, not to have once opposed the ban of partial-birth abortion, not to speak favorably of socialized medicine and not to have been an erstwhile booster of Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton, Ben Carson (or Carly Fiorina) is a much better bet than Donald Trump. And Carson is altogether a more sympathetic figure. He rose from nothing; Trump took over the family real-estate business. Carsons mom was one of 24 kids, had a third-grade education and worked as a domestic; Trumps father amassed a fortune of $300 million. Carson is a serious Christian who has a powerful testimonial about getting down on his knees as a young man unable to control his temper and saying, Lord, unless you help me, Im not going to make it. Trump says he likes The Art of the Deal better than any book except the Bible, but he appears to have read just one of them. Trump is, to say the least, of a different mold. He is a successful creature of our culture of conspicuous display and tasteless braggadocio. Its no accident that he that he names everything after himself. Carson has certainly made the most of his own renown, churning out best-sellers and raking in the speaking fees, but its impossible to imagine him engaging in juvenile insult wars with random targets of his ire. Or imagine him calling a female journalist a bimbo for asking unwelcome questions. Or commenting crudely on womens appearances. Ben Carson stands for something different. His personal story shows how true class isnt about riches, but about character. Donald Trump has all the finest things and, Id hazard to guess, barely as much class as Ben Carsons penniless mother struggling to raise her sons had in her pinky. If conservatives want to flirt with or support an unconventional candidate, Carson provides the opportunity to do it without a guilty conscience. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION h s d t w rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly The talented Mr. FoxHaving a fox in charge of the hen house is a depressing state of affairs. Instead of Mr. Fox being fenced out, the predator is fenced in, and bird is on the menu. The metaphor applies to the present circumstance in Florida. The states environmental assets are shockingly vulnerable to plunder by those in charge of their stewardship and protection. If we thought to give Mr. Fox the benefit of the doubt, the experience with Amendment 1 forewarns otherwise. Entrusting varmints to protect the states environmental treasures is a bad idea. You might recall an overwhelming majority of voters approved Amendment 1 last fall. It was a resounding affirmation that the state should reinvigorate with substantial resources the Florida Forever program. The program was once the states premier conservation and recreation lands acquisition program, a blueprint for conserving natural resources and protecting the states natural and cultural heritage. Its funding plummeted to zero in the aftermath of the Great Recession. Then, even though the states economy eventually improved, a conservative-minded legislature continued to starve the program of resources. Its annual appropriations dried up, the program essentially suffering the same abuse and neglect as many a Florida spring. Florida Forever was still in drought when the amendment passed. It mandates the state Legislature to end its extermination of the program by budget default. It came with a serious pot of money attached from an existing source of revenue generated by the documentary stamp tax. The tax will produce more than $10 billion over the next 20 years in support of the amendments purposes. It was reasonable for Floridians to expect the poormouthing and foot-dragging by lawmakers to end that forestalled the states efforts to acquire and conserve Floridas most at-risk land and water resources. It was, after all, quite a victory. The governor and conservative majority in the state Legislature were unsympathetic to the cause and ideologically opposed to protecting Floridas environment through enlightened policy. Though claiming themselves to be stewards, they are of the self-serving kind rather like Mr. Fox. What they vow to protect they intend to use to private advantage. An editorial in The Florida Times Union put it this way: Every major policy decision is controlled by big corporations and government agencies determined to suppress public interference, restrict the public to being spectators and prevent their exercise of political power. The disregard of voters wishes by the states leadership outed all the conniving rascals. They feasted on Amendment 1s largesse in broad daylight, unconcerned the voters were watching the carnage. In the state Legislatures eyes, accountability for their actions is but a toothless hen. They robbed fund revenue, appropriating Amendment 1 resources for projects that violated the letter and spirit of the law. The misappropriations delivered a gob smack to voters expecting their legislators to be accountable to their wishes. Our lawmakers piled on further insult by hollowing out by millions the budget appropriation available to the state to fund an aggressive program of land acquisition and conservation. The collateral damage included the state walking away from the opportunity to exercise its option to purchase 47,000 acres of land strategic to restoration of the Everglades. Mr. Foxs success emboldens his progeny. State officials think they, too, can abandon the publics interest in conserving and protecting the states environment. A recent proposal is to allow the private sector to plunder Floridas state parks for profit, floated by another Mr. Fox, aka Jonathan P. Steverson, the head of the state Department of Environmental Protection. Steverson thinks it is time for the state to open up its award winning park system to timber cutting, cattle grazing, and hunting. Less loafing, more profit making is the goal. Said Steverson, The department continually looks for opportunities to expand visitor services and recreation as well as make our parks and lands more self-sustaining. Imagine the mix of recreational pursuits with revenue production. Picnickers, campers, cyclists, hikers, boaters and wildlife photographers pick their path through cow patties, dodge hunters bullets, and listen to the angry buzz of chain saws, the cries of timber! ringing in their ears. All for a close encounter of the third kind making money at public expense from the natural resources abundant in our state parks. It is an idea only an alien could love. Mr. Fox is always thinking of the possibilities golf courses bulldozed into the hammocks, paving over primitive campsites for bus-sized RVs, charging for access to scenic views, and state-sponsored shopping malls selling bug spray, toilet paper and souvenirs from China. Glamping or luxury camping is sure to be on their list, too. The state can lease for big bucks the choicest campgrounds to for-profit vendors so they can pick the wallets of wilderness warriors who think camping outdoors is an indoor experience. Why, the next thing you know, the state will declare open season on Floridas black bears and work to weaken protection of Floridas endangered panthers. Oh, you say done already?

BEST FURNITURE STORE 2015 ROOTED IN NAPLESNaples woman ranks high in a dog-breed-dog worldA local dog breeder is receiving major kudos from the American Kennel Club after devoting the last 60 years to grooming Coquina Papillons for competition. Arlene Czech, who also teaches classes at the Naples Dog Club, was named 2015 AKC Breeder of the Year in the toy dog category and could take the top spot overall at the AKC annual awards dinner in December. Lets face it, the award is something you dream of getting but most people dont get it. It was a shock, she said. Ive been breeding for 60 years, but my success has been minimal because it was limited by the fact that I was working. Of course, shes being modest. Ms. Czechs breeding career is littered with designations and titles shes collected over six decades, including a Lifetime Achievement Award from the AKC. Her success isnt a surprise. Her avocation began in 1955 when she purchased her first Papillon as a pet. I thought she was beautiful. she says. It turned out she was the ugliest thing ever, but I didnt know. I didnt know anything about Papillons. When she imported a male Papillon from Britain to mate with her pooch and the resulting litter produced two champions, Ms. Czech was hooked. It was a surprise because they didnt look anything like their parents, luckily, she says. I dont know very much about dog breeding and training, but its a fascinating topic to me. My life has been filled with canines that are more likely to roll in road kill than prance in front of a panel of judges. More than one, actually, has been abandoned by obedience coaches. For years, Ms. Czechs fulltime job as a teacher hampered her progression in dog breeding, but she kicked it into high gear once she moved to Naples 33 years ago. She has bred and shown 44 champions and 44 performance-titled dogs, including a four-generation Dam of Merit winner which apparently means she creates good puppies. Can you imagine if we gave out that sort of award for people? Everything my children know they learned from their grandmother, so Id be out of the running. In fact, I might ask her to move in with us just so I see if my kids honestly know where the trashcans are and how to use them. In light of her skills as a grandmother, I would nominate my mother for Grand Dam of Merit, but she cant have the title because of my own profound deficiencies as a mother. At 86 years old, Ms. Czech credits her good health to her devotion to Papillon breeding and notes her only complaint is high blood pressure but that came from teaching, she says. (Breeding) is what keeps me going, and I think it keeps me in better shape. The AKC will honor her and other category winners at the clubs annual awards dinner, which this year takes place in Orlando. Ms. Czech has the chance to come away with the prestigious overall 2015 Breeder of the Year prize. Breeders are chosen from sporting, hound, working, terrier, toy, non-sporting and herding categories. The competition is steep, but were sure our Naples representative has it in her to bring home top honors. For the benefit of our dog-loving readers, heres the short list of embarrassments my familys dogs have made us suffer through the years. Surprisingly, the mutts dont make the list, only the purebred basket cases that couldnt help themselves. We should have just let the professionals like Ms. Czech have them; Im positive shes never suffered the indignity common to most dog ownership. A false pregnancy that caused Katie to horde stuffed animals and attack our friends. An escape that found Hilde gleefully snapping duck necks at a nearby retention pond. Doggy Prozac to keep Snickers from chewing off her tail (didnt work, had 2 inches amputated). A wonderfully fragrant romp on a neighboring farms dead horse that Luna couldnt resist. A Thanksgiving turkey heist that involved one grossly obese beagle (the aforementioned Snickers) and a performance of some stunning canine acrobatics onto the kitchen counter. Several dish towels, side dishes and wine glasses were sacrificed to Snicker s gluttony. Lindsey Nesmith wishes she had time to volunteer. lindseyNESMITHlnesmith@floridaweekly.com CZECH

once again. From his perspective and that of other patriots, the proposed Constitution was a sham. The men who in Mr. Henrys view threatened the republic were well known: James Madison, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and others. Mr. Henry refused to attend the Constitutional Convention they were a part of in the hot summer of 1787. Meanwhile, in meetings closed to the press and public, plans were considered for establishing a president for life. Among those who did not attend the convention, there was the fear that behind those closed doors, these men would gather in Philadelphia and etch on parchment the foundation for a freedom-squelching regime that would only benefit the wealthiest of citizens. On that suspect piece of wood pulp would rest the words the sacred words that would forever define the character of the United States. Mr. Henry and many others feared it would be blasphemy. This week marks the 228th anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution. After more than two centuries, its easy to take for granted the relevance of the work its framers put in. Amidst a sharply acrimonious political climate, the result of that convention was nothing short of miraculous. The branches of government, their duties and limitations, checks and balances, are all in there. The government the Constitution created still manages to work and offer representation to a vast tapestry of people who proudly have come to call themselves American. Its law extends to all citizens regardless of their level of education or income, whether theyre industrious or lazy, dim or brilliant a Rockefeller, Rodriguez or Raje. When American notions of freedom and fairness are tested, we look to the Constitution to be the ultimate arbiter. A few years after its ratification, Congress would add the Bill of Rights, the first 10 amendments to the Constitution. Those amendments would protect personal freedoms. Mr. Henry, who had so strongly opposed the new government, became a supporter. Today, among the pings of our cell phones and the glare of computer screens, this document still frames the national conscience and informs our discourse. Its words and meaning belong as much to Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders as they do to the rest of us. On its birthday, we celebrate the gift given to us by the founding fathers and the framers of our Constitution nothing less than a government intended to liberate and empower all of us. In honor of the occasion, we invite you to test your knowledge, courtesy of ConstitutionFacts.com.

Starch Your Dirndl! Sponsored by:St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church 625 111th Ave N Naples, FL 34108Naples Take A Soldier Fishing. When they found out they were coming to Naples, they talked about going fishing every day before their mission, Mr. Lloyd says about an entire platoon that took part in one of the first such events. Thats what got them fired up to carry on. There are so many stories like that. Mr. Lloyd and several fishing buddies organized the first Naples Take a Soldier Fishing event five years ago. We just thought it would be great to take some active duty servicemen on a fishing trip into the Gulf of Mexico, he says. We didnt know what to expect, but it picked up speed really quickly. From 32 participating troops in 2010, the event has grown to 130 this year, which Mr. Loyd suspects is the highest capacity the all-volunteer, nonprofit effort can accommodate. In addition to the fishing tournament, Naples Take A Soldier Fishing funds accommodations for its guests at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort and hosts them for two dinners. This years event is set for Friday and Saturday, Sept. 25-26. The success of the whole thing rests on the shoulders of those people who spend the year fundraising and the dozens of boat captains who donate their vessel, equipment and fuel so soldiers can have a great day on the water. The weekend starts with Friday dinner at The Ritz-Carlton. At 5:30 the next morning, Dolphin Transportation buses will transport the troops to Bayfront, where the captains will welcome them aboard their vessels, each one flying an American flag. The boats return to Bayfront starting around 2 p.m. and the fishermen enter their largest catch into a competition for the hot seat, a throne of sorts guarded by Hooters servers, where the victor sits until he is transplanted by a larger entry. The day ends with an awards dinner at The Players Club & Spa at Lely Resort. The entire enterprise is organized through a point person at Macdill Air Force Base in Tampa, which hosts active duty troops from all military branches. Within minutes of the opportunity to sign up, the roster is full and a waiting list started. Soldiers are often unexpectedly deployed, sometimes right off the boat, and its important to have others to fill those spots, Mr. Lloyd says. The event is by invitation only for boat captains and is a pretty hot ticket, according to Brian Sullivan, a board member who has taken soldiers out for the last few years. His opportunity came when organizers added offshore excursions to the backshore trips the group started with. Its something thats super important to me, Mr. Sullivan says. Its just an awesome way to give back to the guys and gals who put their lives on the line everyday. Many captains host charter trips for a living and are licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard; others are local sportsmen who have time and equipment to share with the troops. Captains dont pay an entry fee. The best part, Mr. Sullivan says, is that everyone has a great time mutually expressing their gratitude and getting to know each other. Its just phenomenal spending time with these people, he says. Theyre half my age and the stories they have are amazing I had infantry guys last year who had seen more at 22 than Ill see my whole life. Organizers will still welcome boat sponsorships for this years event and will immediately begin gearing up for next years event in October.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 17-23, 2015 A13 New Endovascular Neurosurgeon Joining Neuroscience and Spine Associates Paul S. Richard, M.D.Endovascular Neurosurgeon Specializing in the treatment of strokes, aneurysms, brain tumors and spinal deformity Neuroscience and Spine AssociatesOf ces in Naples and Ft. Myers(239) 649-1662 A paper droneThe Federal Aviation Administration recently granted (likely for the first time ever) an application to fly a paper airplane. Prominent drone advocate Peter Sachs had applied to conduct commercial aerial photography with his aircraft (a Tailor Toys model with a tiny propeller and maximum range of 180 feet), and the agency, concerned with air traffic safety, accommodated by treating the request (unironically?) under the rules for manned flights (that, among other restrictions, Mr. Sachs must not exceed 100 mph and must engage a licensed airplane pilot to fly it). With this grant, said the victorious Mr. Sachs, the FAA has abandoned all logic and sensibility. Questionable judgments Because temperatures were in the high 90s the last weekend in August, tourists visiting the historical Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland were greeted by the outdoor sprinkler system dousing them near the gates. It was intended as relief, said operators, to keep guests from fainting, but, as one Israeli visitor said, It was a punch to the gut too reminiscent of Auschwitzs gas chamber. (Jewish prisoners had been marched calmly to their deaths under the pretense that they were only being taken for showers.) DIY dentistry seemed off-limits until amateur orthodontia got a boost from a 2012 YouTube video in which Shalom DeSota, now 17, praised rubber bands for teeth-straightening. Ms. DeSotas family lacked dental insurance at the time, so the would-be actress experimented by looping rubber bands around two front teeth she wanted to draw together. Many painful days later, she succeeded. The American Association of Orthodontists expressed alarm in August at the videos recent popularity. So much could go wrong infection, gum-tearing, detachment between tooth and gums that Ms. DeSota, the organization said, had simply been lucky. New world orderDigital World: (1) The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction announced in July that it would be experimenting with online phys ed courses for high schoolers. Students would watch videos on certain activities, then engage in them, and later self-report their (as the agency calls it) mastery. (2) British police warned in August of a brand-new sex crime based on the iPhone app AirDrop. The app sends text or photos instantly to nearby AirDrop users (who choose to receive from contacts or from everyone). Thus, perverts can flash strangers by posting nude pictures of themselves to reach AirDrop users set carelessly (or purposely!) to everyone. Seems like the season of email muddles(1) All Sherri Smith wanted was copies of background emails about her son (who has a disability) in the files of the Goodrich, Mich., school system, but the superintendent informed her in June that the Freedom of Information request would cost her $77,780 (4,500 hours of searching taking two years to complete). (Michigans FOI law was somewhat liberalized on July 1, and Ms. Smith said she may refile.) (2) After a McKinney, Texas, police officer was filmed pointing his gun at unarmed black teenagers at a pool party in June, the online Gawker Media filed a Public Information Act request for the officers records and any emails about his conduct. The city estimated that requests cost at $79,229 (hiring a programmer, for 2,231 hours searching plus computer time). Gawker said it would appeal. Government inactionThe streets of Jackson, Miss., apparently have potholes that rival the worst in the country, but without adequate budget to fix them, according to Mayor Tony Yarber. His remedy, offered earnestly to constituents in August: prayer. I believe we can pray potholes away. (Yarber, elected in 2014, was pastor of the Relevant Empowerment Church.) Names in the newsCharged with choking and punching his fiancee: Mr. Daniel Gentleman, 28 (Prescott, Ariz., May). Charged with killing her husband and burying his body in a manure pile on their farm: Ms. Charlene Mess, 48 (Attica, N.Y., April). Charged with sexual assault: Mr. Huckleberry Finn (Keene, N.H., July). And prominent in the news (confusingly so) when the Food and Drug Administration approved the so-called female Viagra drug Addyi in August: FDA spokesperson Dr. Janet Woodcock. Least-competent peopleSelfies continue to take their devastating toll on Americans. On Aug. 30 in Orient, Maine, driver Jordan Toner, 29, attempting to lean into a seven-person selfie among his passengers, crashed into a tree, causing numerous injuries. On Aug. 24, Alex Gomez, 36, of Lake Elsinore, Calif., tried to take one after draping an angry 4-foot-long rattlesnake around his neck. The predictable bite was damaging but not fatal. On Sept. 1 in Houston, a 19-year-old man taking selfies while clumsily fondling his handgun is no longer with us. NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

Tamarian Rugs The Th e Makes The Room BEHIND THE WHEELWhat do you really get in Floridas lowest cost convertible?The least expensive convertible in Florida is also the cheapest drop top in the country, but it has more value in the Sunshine State. We can enjoy open motoring every month of the year, which means a getaway-inspiring car can brighten up any commute home. Starting at $21,325, the Fiat 500C is nearly $3K less than its corporate stablemate, the Jeep Wrangler. Those who want four-seat convertibles but not the off-road image will pay a 25 percent premium over the 500C for other retrostyled cars like the 2015 MINI or the Volkswagen Beetle convertibles. But is there more to the Fiat than a welldefined price advantage? The heart of the design represents a modern take on a post-WWII European icon, and it is this lineage that adds a peculiar attractiveness. For decades the only vehicles imported from Italy were the true exotics from marques like Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati. This Italian prestige has an interesting effect on the Fiat where the lowest-priced convertible also has a public perception of glamour. Beyond its social transcendence, there are some good fundamental to this car. It comes standard with features like a power folding top, power windows and air conditioning. We can strip away all the options on our test vehicle from the automatic climate control to the 1957 Edition retro body-color wheels, and this car still offers fun at a value price. The interior has a simple but stylish feel thats a hallmark of Italian design. The high roofline and long dashboard give the front seat occupants the feeling of being in a substantially larger vehicle. Trying to seat anyone in the rear will be an instant reminder that this is a compact car. Still, claustrophobia can be easily overcome with a view of the open sky. Rails in the roofline allow the fabric top to peel back at the touch of a button. It can create a large sunroof or further retract until compactly resting against the trunk. The remaining full frame windows are a visual tribute to the first Fiat 500 convertible. This design polarizes people who either like the European-inspired style or think this isnt a full drop top. From a practical standpoint, the roof can operate up to 50 mph, and more importantly, the added structural rigidity aids in rollover safety. The neatly folded roof might look fashionable from the outside, but it obstructs nearly half the drivers rear view. Other cars can still be seen, but there are plenty of shorter and more valuable objects none of us want to hit. Thats undoubtedly why a rear radar system comes standard on the 500C. Our advice is to go one step further and buyers should reinvest some their price savings on an aftermarket backup camera. There are stylish ones that integrate an LCD screen into the rear-view mirror, and it displays the precious few inches lost when the roof is down. With the top fully secured, the Fiat 500C feels as solid as its hatchback counterpart going down the highway. The 1.4-liter 101 hp motor does a fine job of keeping with traffic (its even downright fun darting through urban spaces with the five-speed manual transmission.) The motor makes a fine noise when pushed hard, but for those who are happier leading the pack than just keeping up with the heard, the Fiat 500 Abarth is needed. Thats a seriously fun 160 hp turbocharged car, but its $27K+ price takes us out of the bargain basement. The 500C does not operate in a value convertible vacuum. Besides the preowned market, there are some interesting closeouts happening right now. Mazda is offering deals on the outgoing MX-5 Miata. There are also a few Smart ForTwo Cabriolets remaining before the all-new 2016 model hits the streets. The appeal of the Fiat 500C is the wide swath it cuts for its low price. This is the hero of every grandchild who begs for an ice cream run, the reward for the first adult paycheck and something hip in the urban jungle. In the end, convertibles are about offering novelty. So it feels a bit fortunate that the most novelty-inspired car also happens to be the lowest-priced drop top available. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

Teachers, Parents invited to Early Childhood Education SymposiumEarly childhood educators, administrators and parents can register now for the 2015 Early Childhood Education Symposium presented by Collier Child Care Resources from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24, at Hodges University. Keynote speaker Karen Nemeth, the author of Many Languages, One Classroom, will discuss Achieving Success for Children of All Languages and Abilities, focusing on recent findings, new issues and trends for educating children from diverse language backgrounds. Among the topics Ms. Nemeth will address: meeting state requirements, adapting curriculum, enhancing small and large-group instruction for multilingual groups, engaging diverse families, assessing children, preparing teachers and equipping classrooms. With as many as 25 percent of children under the age of 6 coming from immigrant families in the U.S., teachers find they have children who speak languages other than English in their classrooms, she says. Language is the foundation for so much of early learning, literacy and social development. We need to expand the knowledge of educators to learn about the complexities of growing up with two languages by informing and improving best practices for teaching all young children. Ms. Nemeth earned a bachelors degree in psychology from William Paterson University and a masters of education in learning, cognition and development from Rutgers University. A teacher and a teacher educator for more than 25 years, she has presented at national, state and local conferences on topics related to first and second language development. She currently teaches at Bucks County Community College in Newtown, Pa. Registration for the 2015 Early Childhood Education Symposium is $60 and includes continental breakfast. Limited scholarships are available. Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance and can purchase 0.4 CEUs.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA20 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 17-23, 2015 Caregivers secure health of our youngestOne of our most essential and important functions is to deliver healthy babies. The NCH caregivers who dedicate themselves to this service are all heroes. Heres a story about one of them, shared by Courtney Avirett, R.N., in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit:I just wanted to say how honored and extremely fortunate I and my tiny NICU babies are to have Jhyll Guzman as our respiratory therapist. We were especially thankful late one night earlier this summer when a preterm baby was delivered with little sign of life. The NICU team, led by Dr. Abel Guerra and including me and Ms. Guzman, were there at the delivery. The resuscitation was a long process, as the baby did not respond to initial stimulation or intubation. Ms. Guzman stayed calm, cool and very collected. With her soft voice she was able to participate in the code step-by-step with the result being a screaming, pink baby! The mom and dad had previously had a full-term baby pass at delivery under similar conditions, so it was very tense in the delivery room. I cant say for sure what the outcome might have been had Ms. Guzman not been there, but I do know it would not have been nearly as smooth.This wonderful story is not an isolated incident. NCH was recognized recently at the sixth annual Golden Baby Shoe Awards presented by the Healthy Start Coalition of Southwest Florida, which celebrates the outstanding contributions of individuals who help give babies a healthy start in life. NCH-associated honorees were: Dr. Harry Moreau, who also received a Compass Award from the Mother Baby Unit for exhibiting the highest professional qualities; Dr. Holly Miller, for her assistance to the Pregnancy Resource HEALTHY LIVINGMore aggressive treatment of high blood pressure saves lives NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHMore intensive management of high blood pressure below a commonly recommended blood pressure target significantly reduces rates of cardiovascular disease and lowers risk of death in a group of adults 50 years and older with high blood pressure. This is according to the initial results of a landmark clinical trial sponsored by the National Institutes of Health called the Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial. The intervention in SPRINT carefully adjusting the amount or type of blood pressure medication to achieve a target systolic (the top number in a blood pressure reading) pressure of 120 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) reduced rates of heart attack, heart failure and stroke by almost a third and the risk of death by almost a quarter, as compared to the target systolic pressure of 140 mm Hg. This study provides potentially lifesaving information that will be useful to health-care providers as they consider the best treatment options for their patients, particularly those over the age of 50, says Dr. Gary Gibbons, director of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. The institute is the primary sponsor of SPRINT. The findings were achieved ahead of the trials expected closure date, Dr. Gibbons adds. We look forward to quickly communicating the results to help inform patient care and the future development of evidencebased clinical guidelines.About the studyHigh blood pressure, or hypertension, is a leading risk factor for heart disease, stroke, kidney failure and other health problems. An estimated 1 in 3 people in the United States has high blood pressure. The SPRINT study evaluates the benefits of maintaining a new target for systolic blood pressure among a group of patients 50 years and older whoa re at increased risk for heart disease or who have kidney disease. A systolic pressure of 120 mm Hg, maintained by this more intensive blood pressure intervention, could ultimately help save lives among adults age 50 and older who have a combination of high blood pressure and at least one additional risk factor for heart disease, the investigators say. The trial, which began in the fall of 2009, includes more than 9,300 participants recruited from about 100 medical centers and clinical practices throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. It is the largest study of its kind to date to examine how maintaining systolic blood pressure at a lower than currently recommended level will impact cardiovascular and kidney diseases. NIH stopped the blood pressure intervention earlier than originally planned in order to quickly disseminate the significant preliminary results. The study population was diverse and included women, racial/ethnic minorities and the elderly. The investigators point out that SPRINT did not include patients with diabetes, prior stroke or polycystic kidney disease, as other research has included those populations. When SPRINT was designed, the wellestablished clinical guidelines recommended a systolic blood pressure of less than 140 mm Hg for healthy adults and 130 mm Hg for adults with kidney disease or diabetes. Investigators designed SPRINT to determine the potential benefits of achieving systolic blood pressure of less than 120 mm Hg for hypertensive adults 50 years and older who are at risk for developing heart disease or kidney disease. Between 2010 and 2013, the SPRINT investigators randomly divided the study participants into two groups that differed according to targeted levels of blood pressure control. The standard group received blood pressure medications to achieve a target of less than 140 mm Hg. They received an average of two different blood pressure medications. The intensive treatment group received medications to achieve a target of less than 120 mm Hg and received an average of three medications. Our results provide important evidence that treating blood pressure to a lower goal in older or high-risk patients can be beneficial and yield better health results overall, says Dr. Lawrence Fine, chief of the clinical applications and prevention branch at the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. But patients should talk to their doctor to determine whether this lower goal is best for their individual care. The study is also examining kidney disease, cognitive function and dementia among the patients; however, those results are still under analysis and are not yet available, as additional information will be collected over the next year. The primary results of the trial will be published within the next few months. In addition to primary sponsorship by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institure, SPRINT is co-sponsored by the NIHs National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and the National Institute on Aging. allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org SEE WEISS, A21 NeoGraft EVENTThursday, October 22 5:30PM North Naples: 1015 Crosspointe DriveLearn more about NeoGraft from board certied plastic surgeon W.

About 10 to 15 percent of these babies (the national average) are admitted to our 18-bed NICU for prematurity, fetal intolerance to labor, Respiratory Distress Syndrome, sepsis, low Apgar scores or any number of other reasons. Their treatment is supervised by our neonatology team: Drs. Abel Guerra, Sharie Lockhart, Susan Miller, Harry Moreau, Hugo Navarro, Jorge Perez and Michel Saaloukeh, assisted by Nurse Practitioner Pat Alsgaard and Physicians Assistant Jennifer Kass. Two years ago, we doubled the size of the NICU to prevent having to send many babies outside of Collier County for care. Today, only one or two babies a month have to leave the county, usually for tertiary care not available anywhere in Southwest Florida. We have no more important responsibility than securing the health of our very youngest at the beginning of their fragile existence.

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickIn love with the furry tube of fun that is the ferret? These members of the mustelid family (hint: that means theyre stinkers) are inquisitive and energetic think toddler-on-chocolate energetic. Their busy nature makes them entertaining companions, but it also means they get in to everything. As you can imagine, ferrets have some special needs, some that you might not be aware of. Here are 11 tips on living with them. Ferrets are carnivores with higher protein and fat requirements than cats. Feed them a high-protein diet made for ferrets, and avoid sugary treats such as raisins and carrots. In a pinch, you can feed canned kitten food, but its not appropriate as a full-time diet. Because ferrets can be prone to insulinomas (pancreatic tumors), its best to avoid highcarbohydrate dry foods, recommends Scott Weldy, DVM, of Serrano Animal and Bird Hospital in Lake Forest, Calif. Choose a food thats at least 32 percent animal protein and 20 percent fat with minimal amounts of plant-based ingredients. Ferrets are hunters. They can be great friends with cats and dogs, but pocket pets and birds arent safe around them. On the plus side, you wont have a problem with mice, rats or other vermin in your home. Ferrets have sharp, pointy teeth, and they can be nippy in play. Supervise their interactions with young children, and protect valued items. Grandmas piano can make a fine ferret chew toy if you dont keep Ferdinand away from it and give him acceptable items to play with. Ferrets steal stuff. They are worse than any 2-yearold, says Kristi Krause, DVM, who also practices at Serrano Animal and Bird Hospital. They will take off with your car keys. Your wallet is gone. Your slippers are gone. Ferret-proofing a home is a difficult art. Ferrets fit through tiny spaces. Never assume they cant get to something or get in or out of a certain area. If they can squeeze their head through an opening, the body will follow. And of course they can use their paws to manipulate objects. Dont be surprised to find your ferret inside the dishwasher or in the back of your kitchen cabinets. Ferrets need large living quarters for when youre not home to keep them out of trouble. Choose a cage thats at least 2 feet wide and 4 feet high with two or more levels. Flooring or bedding can range from carpet or wood to pine shavings or artificial grass, but get rid of anything your ferret chews up. Ferrets are nocturnal, but they will adapt to your schedule. When theyre not playing hard, theyre sleeping hard, up to 16 hours a day. Ferrets enjoy playing on large exercise wheels and running through tunnels. An easy, inexpensive option for a tunnel is a flexible clothes dryer vent, Dr. Weldy says. Ferrets will play in them all day, especially if you toss treats inside for them to find. Ferrets smell. With their noses, of course, but they also have an odor, unique to each animal, produced by their musk glands. Some people like the scent; some dont. Be sure you can live with it before getting a ferret. Ferrets need distemper and rabies vaccinations as well as flea and heartworm preventives. Ferrets must be spayed or neutered or have birth control implants. Spaying protects a female ferrets health by limiting the secretion of estrogen, which at high levels can cause fatal anemia. Altered ferrets stink less, and neutered males have less aggressive behavior. Ferrets can bring their people many hours of joy, but theyre not for everyone. I think you have to be a special person to be tolerant of their behaviors, Dr. Weldy says. Theyre unique animals. Ferrets can learn to use a litter box and walk on leash.

THE DIVA DIARIESWhen working out just doesnt work out Im beginning to wonder if there are just some people who are meant to lounge around the house all day enjoying cheese and chocolate while sipping wine and doing nothing more strenuous than online shopping. Im beginning to accept that I belong to this sedentary tribe of non-athletic, softer people. Despite the Nike commercials, the popularity of yoga and the many opportunities to run 5K races for various causes, maybe, just maybe, some of us shouldnt get caught up in the fitness hype. For some of us, the health gods might even be sending not-so-subtle messages that exercise is just not our forte. Cases in point: Back in 2012 when I decided I would be a runner, I bought the best sneakers, sports bras and padded socks and set off running several days a week. I even joined a running club and entered races. Extra weight flew off my body as I blasted Katy Perry songs through my ear buds, pounded the pavement in a glorious sweat and pictured myself as the next Jackie Joyner-Kersey. Then I developed heels spurs and plantar fasciitis, a painful foot condition (in my case, caused by running) that not only makes running impossible but that renders walking no piece of cake, either. There were cortisone shots, treatments in various podiatrists offices and a year of wearing ugly Crocs before my feet finally healed. My running career had lasted about six months. A little over a year ago, I set out to get in shape again. My husband bought me a new bicycle and I rode it like the wind. I started walking long distances and climbing the 27 flights of stairs in our condo regularly. I did squats and lunges and even learned to dance the flamenco. Alas, my left knee proved it wasnt on board with my program by giving out. A year later after having ACL surgery, being laid up for months and going through grueling physical therapy the knee was feeling better. With my feet kicking and my knee healed, I got back on the health bandwagon and into the gym a couple of months ago. The stationary bike, the treadmill and weight lifting worked; I started fitting into my old clothes and feeling fabulous. I even started noticing some definition in my abs. So last week, I increased my crunches to a routine of 100 forward crunches and 100 reverse crunches. Boy, did they hurt. But theyre supposed to, right? I could hear Jane Fonda urging, Feel the burn! All was well for a few days. Then I landed in the emergency room with an incarcerated umbilical hernia. Now, if youve ever had an abdominal hernia, you know what Im talking about. If you havent, I wont get into too much detail, just in case you have a low cringe factor. Suffice it to say, I crunched my guts out. For the most part, a hernia is a common condition that requires no treatment unless it becomes strangulated. (You dont want to know, because its harrowing. But if you simply have to find out more, just Google it). In fact, according to the incredibly good looking 12-year-old (OK, he was probably in his early 20s, but still ) E.R. doc, when my intestines pop out of the hole in my abdominal wall, Im just supposed to lie down and gently push them back in with my fingers. Sexy, right? When I told a friend about what exercising had gotten me into this time, he observed, Wow. Did you ever think youd get to the age where when things started falling out on your body, youd just casually put them back in? No. No, I did not. And since the idea of it all totally freaks me out, crunches are no longer in my fitness regime. In fact, I no longer have a fitness regime. The message has come through loud and clear. Third times a charm and all that. From now on my right arm is going to get a nice workout by raising a wine glass and spreading cream cheese onto crackers. I hope such activity burns a calorie or two. Some people were born to run, pedal and crunch, while others were born to lounge in safety and comfort. And on that note, Im off to order some muumuus online. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 17-23, 2015 MONEY & INVESTINGPreferred stocks not the miracle equity they might appear to beI absolutely love late night infomercials. They are capitalism at its best producers using every aspect of psychology and marketing available to convince you to buy a product that you never heard of, probably dont need, is guaranteed to be cheaply made, and is exorbitantly priced (once you tack on the mandatory $19.95 shipping and handling rate) all within 30 minutes. I especially like the weight-loss infomercials with the before and after pictures. Yes, taking a pill once a day with nonFDA approved but clinically tested substances from the Rain Forests of Antarctica will immediately transform me into Channing Tatum with an amazing tan and brilliant white teeth as an added bonus. How could it not? Unfortunately, in investing, people are also looking for that magic pill that will deliver a significant yield, not be subject to significant interest rate risk and not have major price swings like common stocks all at the same time. Some believe they have found this magical investment in the form of preferred stock. So what is preferred stock and is it the wondrous investment people are searching for? Preferred stock is a class of equity issued by a company to raise capital. Like common stock, owning preferred stock gives the investor ownership of the company. In addition, the price of preferred stock will move up and down with the success and failures of the company. However, preferred stock is different than common stock in many ways as well. First, the dividend rate on preferred stock is generally much higher than that of common stock. In fact, most preferred stock holders buy this class of equity for the yield, making preferred stock act more like a bond than a stock in many situations. A second major difference between preferred and common stock is that preferred stock has a higher claim on both dividends and assets compared to common stock. That means that in an event of bankruptcy, preferred stock holders will get paid out before common stock holders (but still after bondholders). It also means that preferred dividends must be paid out before common stockholders receive their dividends. And finally, generally speaking, preferred stockholders do not have voting rights. So on the surface it seems like preferred stock is common stock with a higher dividend and less risk because of its claim on assets and dividends. So everyone should rush out and buy as much preferred stock as they can, right? Well, there is a catch to most preferred stock, namely that most preferred stock is callable by the issuing company. What this means is that the company has the option, whenever it wants, to buy back the preferred stock at par value. Why is this bad? This call option produces a situation where the investor loses when the company does well or interest rates fall and the investor loses when the company does poorly or interest rates rise. Let me illustrate with a couple of examples. Lets say that the company issues preferred stock and then it starts doing really well or overall interest rates start to fall. In either situation, the company would be able to issue equity or debt at a more favorable rate so it simply calls back the preferred stock and reissues the security at a lower interest rate. All of a sudden, the 7 percent dividend yield that the investor thought she was getting is replaced by a 5 percent dividend yield and she is worse off. In another example, lets say that the company issues preferred stock and then the company does terribly or overall interest rates start to rise. In these situations, the company would not call the stock and the value of the stock would plummet because investors would be scared of not getting paid back or they could take their money and invest in a new issue at a higher rate. In this situation, the investor also loses because she would probably take a significant loss on the investment. In addition, the company could cut the dividend of preferred stock, which they could not do with bonds without going into bankruptcy. So because of a preferred stocks call option, potential investors should be wary of investing in this type of security. So why does this type of investment even exist? First, banks have been a huge issuer of preferred stock because it counts as Tier 1 Capital (a banks core measurement of its financial strength) while common stock does not. Second, some companies cannot issue more debt because of regulatory reasons or risk of being downgraded by credit agencies and so they issue preferred stock. Finally, corporate and institutional investors get special tax treatment for preferred stock dividends so it makes sense for them to own this class of equity. Retail investors do not get this treatment so it is not surprising that the majority of preferred stock is not owned by the public. So just like the Snuggie seemed to masterfully combine the best features of a blanket and sweatshirt, preferred stock may seem on the surface like it combines the best features of a stock and bond. However, the call feature on most preferred stock issues may give potential investors an unwanted surprise in the future.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 17-23, 2015 because it offers a base of students and retirees, bilingual workers and parents needing flexible hours and part-time jobs. They are the anonymous conduits who guide Altas clients customers through the process of signing up for a plan. Altas employment swells to more than 1,000 employees during the enrollment period and then decreases to only a few hundred full-timers who stay on the rest of the year. The company starts ramping up staff over the summer. At peak season last year it took on 1,200 people and will need 1,400 this year. The company leased a second building, making room for up to 1,700 employees in all. The hiring blitzes reflect the potential growth for Alta as business from health insurance exchanges grows. As of June, 9.9 million people in the U.S. had an active policy purchased through Healthcare.gov. Not all or even most of those policyholders who made a call about health insurance ended up buying a plan from a sales rep at Alta in Fort Myers. They have plenty of competition from others in the business process outsourcing, or BPO, industry, such as Tampa-based HealthPlan Services. Its website reads, HPS connects six of the nations largest insurers to public and state exchanges in 39 states. Many did reach an Alta rep, though, but none of the customers was from Florida. Altas clients include at least a few big health insurance companies that operate in 14 other states. Mr. Makurat declined to reveal the names of clients or specific sales figures or call volumes. Selling health plans People dont know theyre talking to an Alta employee when they call. The company does its best to be an invisible transparent link between its insurance company clients and customers who are buying a policy. Alta employees are not telemarketers, dont work on commission, and only take inbound calls unless a customer wants a call back. A call is routed first to a screener, a customer service rep who takes some basic information before putting calls through to a licensed sales rep. By law, licensed reps are the only ones allowed to answer specific questions about health insurance plans and guide someone to the right type of plan. Mr. Makurat enlisted two employees to talk with a reporter about their jobs. Nina Carrasco, a 41-year-old Naples resident, massage therapist, mother of three and grandmother of one, joined Alta in 2013 after hearing about a job fair on the radio. She came back the next year, and this year, enjoying the atmosphere and her coworkers. I couldnt ask for a better job, says Ms. Carrasco, a customer service rep and application specialist. About half the staff are bilingual like her, an important skill for Alta. Our Latin community has grown so much and with bilingual people on the phone they feel more comfortable calling, Mr. Makurat said. That first year for the exchanges, in 2013, there was also a lot of confusion about health insurance. Clearing up misinformation is one of the more challenging parts of the job, said Sammi Rodriguez, a 22-year-old Lehigh Acres resident who started with Alta as a customer service rep in 2013 after filling out an online application. People would ask her questions about health plans and she would have to pass them on to a licensed sales agent. I sat for so long like, I know this answer, she said, so she got her license in time for this years enrollment season. Alta pays for licensing training and fees, a benefit that lasts after they leave the company, Mr. Makurat points out. For most seasonal hires, their assignment ends around Jan. 31. Many come back the next year. Mr. Makurat tells them to stay in touch. Now hiringAlta is hiring for this season, including customer service reps, licensed sales agents, and management positions, from entry-level students to experienced retirees, both fulland part-time positions. Benefits include paid training, flexible schedules, skills development, advancement potential for high performers and paid health insurance-sales licensing for qualified candidates. The company doesnt reveal wages, but Mr. Makurat said they are fair and competitive. The average yearly salary for customer service reps in Florida ranges from about $21,000 per year for entry-level employees to $35,500 per year for experienced ones. And for insurance sales agents those averages range from about $36,600 entry-level to $85,000 experienced, according to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity.

Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to Fool@fool.com or via regular mail c/o this newspaper, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Expect Volatility in the MarketOn Aug. 24, the stock market, as represented by the Dow Jones Industrial Average, plunged by about 1,000 points, stunning many investors and setting off a wave of panic. That might seem mighty worrisome, but most investors should not have been hyperventilating. For starters, we should, at minimum, expect stocks to fall at least 10 percent once a year, 20 percent once every few years, 30 percent or more once or twice a decade, and 50 percent or more once or twice during your lifetime.Notice that the previous paragraph uses the word percent. Its important to distinguish between market drops measured in absolute points vs. percentage points. The Dows 1,000-point drop represented about 6 percent of its value. Contrast that with 1987s big crash. The Dow fell only 508 points that day, but it represented more than 22 percent of the Dows value!With the Dow in the 15,000-to-18,000 range lately, even small moves can look big when measured in absolute points. A 1 percent move, for example, would be 150 to 180 points. Meanwhile, though a stock market correction might last years, between 1945 and 2013, they averaged just 14 weeks. So go ahead and prepare for the worst, but know that many market crashes are quickly overcome. Indeed, though the Dow fell sharply on Aug. 24, it recovered somewhat during the day and ended down 3.6 percent. As of this writing, the Dow is down 7 percent year to date, after posting gains in each of the past six years. Those who were right to freak out over the markets plunge were those who had short-term money in it. If you plan to withdraw some money from your stock investments soon or within a few years, perhaps for a down payment on a home or college tuition, you shouldnt hold it in stocks, as days like Aug. 24 can happen. Short-term money is better off in CDs, money market accounts or savings accounts. When it comes to stocks, expect volatility and dont freak out. Bought the StoryMy dumbest investment happened when I got very excited about antiangiogenesis as a treatment for cancer. Its a strategy that involves cutting off the blood supply to cancer cells. The technology was developed by Dr. Judah Folkman, and licensed to the biotechnology company EntreMed.I bought a lot of shares of EntreMed at $25, and as the excitement grew about the concept, the stock surged to over $100 per share. This was before they had produced a product approved for the marketplace. Instead of cashing in a percentage of my sizable gain, I figured that if the stock rose this high without a product, imagine how much higher it would go when products hit the market.Unfortunately, EntreMeds products in development didnt do well in initial clinical trials, and ultimately other companies brought to market successful drugs based on antiangiogenesis principles. S.S., Newtown, ConnecticutThe Fool Responds: Thats a classic error, being swayed by a compelling story and overlooking a dearth of products on sale, revenue and profits. Many biotech companies sport massive potential, but its smart at least to wait for clinical successes, if not for FDA approval.EntreMed struggled over the years and has changed its focus and, last year, even its name to CASI Pharmaceuticals. It is now dedicated to the acquisition, development and commercialization of innovative therapeutics addressing cancer and other unmet medical needs for the global market with a commercial focus on China. A Dividend-Paying Tech TitanShares of Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) have averaged annual gains of about 12 percent over the past 20 years, but were down about 5 percent over the past year, at the time of this writing. The tech giants recent malaise due in part to its $8 billion write-off of its purchase of Nokias phone business makes it an intriguing opportunity. CEO Satya Nadella has a mobile-first, cloud-first transition underway. Microsofts cloud revenue posted triple-digit gains in seven recent quarters, and the revenue is especially attractive because its mostly recurring. Meanwhile, the company has adapted its industry-leading software, Office 365, for competing operating systems such as Android and iOS, reaching more consumers. As for hardware, the Surface Pro 3 and Surface 3 tablets are performing admirably, with sales more than doubling last quarter to nearly $900 million in revenue. The Surface Pro 4 and other mobile devices will be debuting soon. Windows 10 appears to be off to a strong start, with an estimated 53 million downloads in the first three weeks. Microsoft is even tackling the Internet of Things, with its Windows 10 IoT Core, a slimmed-down version of its operating system designed to operate on a wide range of smart devices. Microsoft is setting up the foundations for future growth. With a dividend that recently yielded 2.9 percent, its worth consideration. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Microsoft.) I trace my roots back to an insurance company in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1850. I entered health insurance in 1899 and auto coverage in 1907. I appointed my first female officer in 1926 and insured the Manhattan Project in 1944. Today Im a premier health insurer, serving about 46 million people with offerings that include medical, pharmacy, dental, behavioral health, group life and disability plans, as well as Medicaid health care management services, workers compensation administrative services and health information technology. Im buying Humana for about $37 billion. My name was inspired by a famous volcano. Who am I? (Answer: Aetna) 401(k) vs. 403(b)QWhats the difference between a 401(k) plan and a 403(b) plan? C.S., Port Dickinson, New YorkA401(k) plans are tax-advantaged retirement plans for private-sector workers. 403(b) plans are very similar, but are primarily for employees of taxexempt employers, such as educational institutions and some nonprofits.With both, employers will often match employee contributions to some degree. If yours does, be sure to grab all the matching funds you can, as thats free money. Employer contributions may take several years to fully vest, but 403(b) plans are more likely to feature immediate or quicker vesting. In both cases, employee contributions are immediately fully vested.Learn more at fool.com/retirement and 403bwise.com. ***QWhat are derivatives? M.M., Gresham, OregonADerivatives are financial instruments such as warrants, futures contracts and options.While shares of stock represent real ownership stakes in real companies, derivatives often represent contracts, not assets. Their value is based on, or derives value from, the value of other investments, such as stocks, bonds, currencies or commodities thus, the name derivative.Sophisticated investors use derivatives to hedge their bets, engage in arbitrage (profiting from differences in prices), lock in prices and use leverage (i.e., invest with borrowed money). For example, several derivatives may be based on a single bundle of home mortgages, with one representing the bundles interest payments and another representing its principal payments. Since they will react differently to interest rate changes, they will each likely appeal to a different kind of investor.Derivatives are typically used by large institutional investors that want to boost their overall return or hedge against risk. Many derivatives are very risky, though, and when used aggressively can result in investors losing more than their initial investment. Want more information about stocks?

The designer-decorated Carina model, recently opened for viewing, exemplifies how buyers can enjoy the size, comfort and privacy of a whole house, yet feel secure when they leave for any length of time, knowing that the exterior, landscaping and pool are automatically looked after in their absence. The three-bedroom-plus-den, 3-bath Carina features a transitional interior design. In 4,505 total square feet and 3,281 square feet under air, the open floor plan emphasizes a connection between indoor and alfresco living spaces. In addition to the great room, there are formal living and dining rooms.

The kitchen is outfitted with GE Monogram stainless steel appliances and has an island with a breakfast bar that seats four. The pantry, which connects to the dining room, also doubles as a butlers pantry and wine bar with cabinetry and an under-counter wine refrigerator. The Carinas master suite is separated from the master bath by his-and-her walk-in closets. The bath offers a large walk-in shower, soaking tub and double vanities. Each of the Carinas guest rooms has a walk-in closet and full bath. Interior finishes include gray-toned marble flooring with a brushed finish in the foyer, great room and kitchen; and wide-planked hardwood flooring in the living room, dining room, den and master bedroom. Various shades of gray reappear throughout the home in stained and painted cabinetry finishes, art pieces, accents and bedding. Additional features of the model include tray ceilings with crown molding, beamed ceilings with wallpaper inlays in the den and dining room and quartz countertops for kitchen and bathroom cabinetry. An enclave of 20 estate homes, Portofino has an old world ambiance reflected in the use of fountains and stonework throughout. Each residence is set on a waterfront site with an optional boat dock. Homes feature Spanish-influenced architecture, with custom iron double with custom iron double entry doors and terracotta barrel roof tile against clean white stucco exteriors.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 17-23, 2015 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS Painful contortions in love and yoga My wise yoga teacher says there are no points in yoga. No matter if we do a bind, if we arch our backs, if we bend and fold and stretch we all walk away with identical score sheets. Instead, he says, its about making the right choice for our bodies. In any particular pose, we must decide how far to lean into the stretch. We must ask ourselves: Does this suit me? Is this the appropriate choice for where I am in this moment? Everyone in the class adopts a thoughtful expression as he says these things. We want to believe him. But no one does. Or, at least, I dont. Because yoga attracts the very people who need its message most: the Type A-ers, the high-strung ones, those of us who simply cant relax. We all want the most points. During class, Ill look around at the other yoginis with their beautiful lunges, their arched backs, their bodies folded delicately in two. Me? I'm stiff-spined and inflexible. I watch them from the corners of my eyes, jealous, ashamed of my bodys failings, sure that theyre doing it right and that I, as always, am doing it wrong. But my wise yoga teacher reminds us that each body is different. Were not built the same, he says. Our bones, our muscles, our tissues. We might look similar on the outside, but inside we are completely different. Glancing around, I see that hes right. There are certain poses some of us do with ease and others that are a challenge. My Downward Dog is never graceful, and good luck getting me into Crow. But Pigeon, I can do. And Tree Pose? No problem. During the five-minute meditation at the end of a recent class the moment when were supposed to let our minds empty (but I never do) it occurred to me that my yoga teachers advice could just as easily be translated to relationships. There, also, no two of us are the same. Just because someone else seems to be adept in a particular role Generous Lover or Doting Wife does not mean the same pose will suit us. If I had a dollar for every man and woman who confides in me that they are unhappy in their relationship, Id have an entire wardrobe of fancy yoga ensembles. And one of those cute bags people use to tote their yoga mats. The problem with these relationships, I think, is not with the partners themselves. Its not that hes a jerk or shes crazy (although thats what these unhappy couples always want me to believe); its simply that theyre trying to contort their relationship into a pose that doesnt suit them. We cant all be Contented Spouse. So why do we try so damn hard? Many of us think there is only one way to do relationships, but I would argue that each of our hearts is built differently. Rather than pushing ourselves to mimic someone else, wed be better off honoring where we are in any particular moment. And that, I would argue, deserves the most points. artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 17-23, 2015 in a record 4 hours. Word is spreading, says Gulfshore Playhouse founder and artistic director Kristen Coury, taking a quick lunch break from auditioning actors in New York City for the companys upcoming season. Playwrights who have come for the first couple years and feel supported and are growing in national prominence are talking about how valuable our festival was to them and their piece, that theyre treated well, that Naples is beautiful and Gulfshore Playhouse respects the process, she adds. Its not only an opportunity for playwrights to work with a director and actors for a week, but to also see their play presented as a reading. On top of all that, they get to see how an audience responds to the work and then receive verbal and written feedback from the audience. For local audiences, its an opportunity to experience new, in-the-works plays and meet and interact with those who created them. The festival not only introduces audiences to new playwrights, but also to actors they might not have seen before locally. Last years audiences met actress Maureen Silliman, who was a big hit reading the parts of two very different mothers in two of the finalist plays. Ms. Silliman was so well received that Ms. Coury cast her in Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike that season. She stole the show. Ms. Sillimans husband, William Parry, had acted at Gulfshore Playhouse before; both will participate in this years New Works Festival, and both have been cast in shows for the 2015-16 season. Amy Van Nostrand, who performed in Gulfshore Playhouse productions of All My Sons and Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike and will play Amanda in the upcoming seasons opening show, The Glass Menagerie, will also participate in the New Works Festival. This years finalists are all dramas. Its hard to encapsulate an entire play, says Ms. Coury, but shes game to try.Embalmed, Buried, GoneBy Ashlin Halfnight The festival opens at 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24, with Embalmed, Buried, Gone by Ashlin Halfnight. Its a serious family drama about a brother who has recently died and is being denied a proper burial, she says. And the sister who comes home has to deal with that and finds out a lot of things about her brother that she had not known. A former hockey player, Mr. Halfnight teaches script development, screen acting and production at New York Universitys Stonestreet Studio. A Fulbright Scholar and a Howard Stein Playwriting Fellow, he has had residencies at The Royal Court and The National Theater of Hungary in Budapest.Ariadne on the IslandBy Kato McNickle The next play in the festival, Ariadne on the Island, by Kato McNickle, will be presented at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25. This play, Ms. Coury says, has an ancient feeling and takes place on an unknown Mediterranean island. Its timeless, she says. We dont know where it is or when its taking place. Its an anti-war kind of romantic, dream-like play. Its very different from all the others in terms of tone and feel. The playwrights description says it begins on an island of refuge during a mechanized war zone and tells the story of a hard-fought conflict from four perspectives (It) asks the timely and important questions: What are the effects of war on varied peoples? How do we recreate ourselves and our social structure in destructions wake? And can we ever truly love our enemy? A Connecticut-based playwright/ director/artist, Ms. McNickle is the 2010 Clauder Award recipient and multiple-year ONeill National Theater Conference finalist. She holds a degree in ancient studies from Brown University and is vice president of the Mystic Paper Beasts Mask & Puppetry Company.Other than HonorableBy Jamie Pachino The reading of Other Than Honorable by Jamie Pachino takes place at 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26. Ms. Coury describes it as a timely, important play about a woman in the military who was abused in the military and finally has the courage to speak out about it. Ms. Pachino describes her work as the story of one woman confronting the real meaning of the militarys codes of honor, courage and loyalty. She currently writes for NBCs Chicago PD and has written film features for DreamWorks, Disney and Lions Gate as well as teleplays for Hallmark Hall of Fame, Hallmark Channel and Lifetime Television. Her works have earned the Kennedy Center Fund for New American Plays production grant, the Laurie Foundation Theatre Visionary Award, Chicagos Jeff Award for Best New Work and the Francesca Primus Prize from the American Theatre Critics Association.WhiteBy James Ijames The final reading in this years New Works Festival, White by James Ijames, will be staged at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 27. It explores this closed racial politically correct world we live in, Ms. Coury says. In it, a white male has to hire a black female to pose as the artist of a painting hes trying to sell, in order to garner interest from a local art gallery. Its interesting and funny. The playwright describes it as a modern take on the Frankenstein tale (that) spins out of control as it explores issues of race, gender, sexuality and art. A Philadelphia-based actor and playwright, Mr. Ijames received a bachelors degree in drama from Morehouse College in Atlanta and an MFA in acting from Temple University in Philadelphia. He won the 2011 F. Otto Haas Award for an Emerging Artist and has won two Barrymores for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Play as well as a Barrymore for Best Direction of a Play (for The Brothers Size.) His plays include The Most Spectacularly Lamentable Trial of Miz Martha Washington. He is the assistant professor of theatre at Villanova University in Villanova, Penn.About the processThe selection process for the New Works Festival is completely blind. I know nothing about them, who they are, gender, backgrounds, Ms. Coury says. Just like last year, the playwrights were very geographically diverse and ethnically diverse, and there is gender parity. Its very exciting that its happening again. Many festival attendees see all four readings. Theyre excited for the opportunity to see these new plays, talk to the playwrights and actors, she says. Its an inside experience. Its like an Inside the Actors Studio playwright experience.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 17-23, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 FLORIDA WRITERSPoisoned soil and souls threaten an island in the Gulf of Mexico Isolation by Mary Anna Evans. Poisoned Pen Press. 288 pages. Hardcover, $26.95 (other formats available) This is not just another murder mystery. As a psychological portrait of a woman who has been plunged into despair, it is deeply moving. As an exploration of how the past informs and shapes the present, it is thought provoking. As an examination of family dynamics, it is astute and engaging. It is a perfectly titled book, in which isolation is both an outer and an inner reality. However, it is very much a murder mystery, just like the others in the Faye Longchamp Mystery series that has garnered much applause for Mary Anna Evans. This is No. 9. Faye Longchamp-Mantooth, archaeologist extraordinaire, has miscarried. Her teenage adopted daughter, Amande, is not going to meet a baby sister upon returning home from college. Faye has withdrawn into herself so severely that her husband, Joe, wonders if she can pull herself out. The trauma of this loss has altered Fayes behavior. She seems not to notice what goes on around her. She cannot relate normally to Joe or their very young son. She is in isolation, and her withdrawal creates isolation for those around her. Ms. Evans achievement in this novel includes allowing readers to share Fayes unbalanced emotional state and to follow the steps by which it is eventually restored to health. The fact that a woman is killed at the mainland marina near Fayes Joyeuse, an estate and coastal island in the Gulf of Mexico, would not seem to enhance her chance for recovery especially since that woman is Liz Colton, the marinas owner and also a friend. That other women are injured or threatened makes matters worse. Moral pollution and environmental contamination hold sway. Tommy Barnett, the man who services boats at the marina, has been illegally dumping waste materials. Fayes property has unusually high levels of arsenic. And Faye, digging around as archaeologists must, has accidentally triggered a leak in a large metal kerosene container. Whats going on? Who is causing what and why? The Longchamp-Mantooth family has been suddenly expanded by the arrival of Joes father, Sly, with whom Joe has had little contact for many years. Slys skills, background and the guilt he harbors make for an especially interesting character throughout the novel. Because he has served time in prison, he is a ready suspect for the bad things that are happening on Joyeuse Island. Others have shown up in the area for unusual reasons. A man named Oscar Croft had come to visit the Museum of American Slavery, which had been a hobby of Emma Everetts late husband, Douglass. Now Emma, one of Fayes best friends, runs the place. Oscar, interested in a certain corner of American history related to his own heritage, has been led to this place by his companion and history guide, Delia Scarsdale. Hes excited about meeting Faye, whose expertise could help uncover the answers to his questions. He is trying to discover the fate of his greatgreat-grandfather, Elias Croft, who was supposedly held against his will and possibly murdered by a woman named Cally Stanton. Cally, born into slavery, is Fayes ancestor and the long-time owner of Joyeuse Island and its mansion. Throughout novel, we find excerpts from and other references to Callys oral history recorded in 1935 as part of a WPA project. It might contain what Oscar so desperately wishes to find. What seemed to have been Fayes aimless poking around in the earth surrounding her mansion is part of her effort to find evidence of Callys innocence. Faye has connected her miscarriage with the inheritance of Callys guilt, and she needs to redeem both of them. When Emmas security system is compromised, tensions begin to rise. Does the intrusion connect in any way to Liz Coltons murder? Pushy Oscar and Lothario Sly seemed to have shown interest in both women. Then comes the word that Delia Scarsdale has been attacked. Murder and other mayhem, arsenic contamination, leaking kerosene, illegal dumping, family demons haunting Faye and Joe its all swirled into a mighty mystery brew, the interpenetration of moral and chemical toxicity at Joyeuse Island raising the spiritual and emotional stakes of Ms. Evans fine novel. 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.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 17-23, 2015 ARTS COMMENTARY (Put your hand inside) the puppet headCardboard boxes, balls of twine, sticks of wood not necessarily what immediately comes to mind when you think of art supplies. But in Wayne Whites skillful hands and funhouse imagination, theyre transformed into something magical. The Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at Florida SouthWestern State College commissioned Mr. White to make a puppet of the late artist/gallery namesake in conjunction with the seasons opening exhibit: Wayne WHITE: Here Comes Mr. Know It All. With the assistance of some FSW art students and alumni, Mr. White created the Bob puppet in five days. Preceded by two drummers and a fiddler, it made its grand entrance during the opening reception at the gallery on the Fort Myers campus. The gigantic puppet, whose oversized head practically grazed the gallerys ceiling and needed two assistants (one for each long arm), walked to a wall as white as a canvas, dipping his brush in paint so red it practically screamed. One by one, in perfect choreography, white arms burst through the wall and joined the Bob puppet in painting. Attendees cheered. The Bob puppet turned, opened his chest and showed us his heart. We suspect Mr. Rauschenberg, with his strong love of play and own history of using cardboard and found objects in his art, would have loved this. The puppet is on exhibit through Nov. 7, along with Mr. Whites sly and hilarious word paintings. It may even make an appearance in the 2016 Edison Festival of Light parade.Florida Weekly photographer Vandy Major took daily photographs of the puppets progress. Here are her behindthe-scenes images of the Bob puppet being created. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYWayne White gives Bobs head its curls. The finished head. The head attached to the frame/ backpack. The Bob puppet, making its debut in its namesake gallery at Florida SouthWestern State College.

Look for an interested party to rally to your support.LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A business matter that unexpectedly turns into a personal situation could create complications. Best to resolve the matter now before too much harm can be done.SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Emotions can run high when they involve personal matters that no one really wants to talk about. But this could be a good time to create the means to a workable outcome.SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A positive response to a workplace request could lead the way to other long-sought changes. Congratulations. A personal situation also takes a welcome turn.CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Patience pays off, as that once-overwhelming work situation continues to become easier to handle on a one-by-one basis. Look for positive news from a colleague.AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) It might be a good idea to take more time to reassess your next move in working out a complex situation. You could benefit from a new perspective on the matter. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might want to consider making time to discuss a change of plans with everyone concerned.

Meanwhile, family matters might demand more attention, and youll want to set aside time to deal with them.CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A relationship suddenly might present some challenges you never expected. After talking things out, you might want to consider taking some time to assess what youve learned.LEO (July 23 to August 22) A disappointing response to a request might dampen the Lions spirits. But you might want to ask the reasons behind it. What you learn can be of great importance in a future undertaking.BORN THIS WEEK: You have a strong sense of what is right, and you try to work from that foundation. Friends see you as reliable.

REQUIRED SPACE IS LIMITED EXCLUSIVE SAVINGS AVAILABLE! new yearround service to Cancun, Mexico nonstop ights start Oct. 9 CONTRACT BRIDGEWhen to break a general ruleBY STEVE BECKERA problem frequently encountered by declarer is whether to finesse or play for the drop when missing the Q-xx-x of a suit. To illustrate, consider only the North-South spade holding in todays hand and assume that the opponents have never bid. In the long run, the winning approach is to cash the ace and, if both opponents follow low, continue with the king. Mathematically, this is slightly better than taking a finesse against the queen. But the advantage of playing for the drop is so slight that declarer should prefer the finesse whenever there are sound clues or good tactical reasons that make it a better play. In the present deal, for example, after West leads the K-A-Q of diamonds, declarer should ruff the queen, cash the ace of spades, cross to dummy with a heart and take a trump finesse. The finesse is correct here because of the highly significant information South obtains at trick two. On that trick East shows out, revealing that West started with seven diamonds and East with only one. West therefore has six unknown cards that might include the queen of spades, while East has 12 unknown cards that might include the queen. On this basis alone, the odds are 2-to-l that East was dealt the queen, so South should take the finesse. He should not bet the proverbial homestead on its success, as West might have started with the Q-x, but, all factors considered, it is clearly the better play.

In a funny and thoughtful way, writer/ director Noah Baumbach deftly finds the haughty nothingness of a young generation thats never accomplished anything but is convinced it will conquer the world. Rated R.Best of Enemies 1/2(Gore Vidal, William F. Buckley, Sam Donaldson) In 1968, ABC News hired intellectuals Gore Vidal (a Democrat) and William F. Buckley (a Republican) to debate during the Democratic and Republican national conventions. The results changed TV news punditry forever. Its a wonderfully entertaining documentary about two people who positively loathed one another and the lengths (depths) they went to in order to win. Rated R.We Are Your Friends 1/2(Zac Efron, Emily Ratajkowski, Wes Bentley) An aspiring DJ (Mr. Efron) falls for his mentors (Mr. Bentley) girlfriend (Ms. Ratajkowski) in this version of the struggling artist fights to make his mark on the world story. If youre young, ambitious and in search of yourself, and/or if enjoy electronic music, give it a shot. If not, pass. You wont miss much. Rated R.American Ultra (Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Connie Britton) A stoner (Mr. Eisenberg) discovers hes a covert CIA operative and defends his girlfriend (Ms. Stewart) from assassins. The premise is clever, but its not funny and is far too violent. Rated R.Straight Outta Compton 1/2(OShea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell) The early days of pioneering rap group N.W.A. are highlighted in this tremendous biopic from director F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job). The music and story are well done, but the real highlight of the film is the performances, particularly Mr. Mitchell as Eazy-E. Rated R.The Man From U.N.C.L.E. 1/2(Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander) In 1963, a CIA agent (Mr. Cavill) and KGB agent (Mr. Hammer) reluctantly work together to stop the construction and sale of a nuclear warhead. It has some whimsical, breezy charm and decent action, but theres nothing spectacular here. Rated PG-13.Fantastic Four (Jamie Bell, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan) Young scientists teleport to an alternate dimension, only to return with superpowers. You can see the potential, but poor story structure undoes anything the movie has going for it. Rated PG-13.Ricki and the Flash (Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, Mamie Gummer) With her daughters (Ms. Gummer) marriage in shambles, distant Ricki (Ms. Streep) comes back to town to offer support. Too bad shes not wanted. For a cast of this caliber, from a script by Diablo Cody and directed by Jonathan Demme, we have a right to expect much more than this standard and predictable dramedy.

ENTIRE BILL LATEST FILMSThe VisitIs it worth $10? YesAfter giving us the drudgery of After Earth and The Last Airbender in recent years, M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) is back in fine thriller form with The Visit, a spooky low-budget creeper that nicely mixes humor and horror. With their mother (Kathryn Hahn, Parks and Recreation) on a cruise, early teen Becca (Olivia DeJonge) and her little brother Tyler (Ed Oxenbould) are sent to frosty rural Pennsylv ania for the week to spend time with their grandparents, affectionately called Nana (Deanna Dunagan) and Pop Pop (Peter McRobbie). Things are fine at first, even if the kids are forbidden to go in the basement and have a strict bedtime of 9:30 p.m. Weird sounds nonetheless keep them awake, and after naked Nana scratches the walls late at night they know theyre in for the weirdest week of their lives. But are they actually in danger? Part of the fun of the movie is that youre not sure for a while. But then it becomes unmistakably clear. A sense of dread hits you from the start not from anything shocking in the story, but from the instant realization that this is yet another found-footage horror pic. Mercifully, the found-footage gimmick in which we only see what the characters in the movie record on their cameras is used intelligently, deftly switching in a documentary style between two cameras with footage shot by Becca and Tyler thats often at an odd angle (high/low/dutch) or in a close-up or long shot, all of which keeps us offkilter. Story-wise we know something is off with the grandparents, and thats echoed visually by the camerawork. This is smart filmmaking. The setting has a cold and barren feel. Even the supposed warmth of Nana and Pop-Pops house is undermined by the use of muted lighting; it easily couldve been more brightly lit and therefore warmer. The snow, leafless trees, gray skies and mud all suggest an unwelcoming environment in which Becca and Tyler are stuck. Think about how different the film would feel if it were set during the summer and included picnics and trips to the lake. Ms. DeJonge is effective as Becca, a young teen often (rightfully) annoyed with her annoying little brother, and Ms. Dunagan and Mr. McRobbie are appropriately odd as the grandparents. But its young Mr. Oxenbould who stands out the most as Tyler, an energetic and childishly immature boy who freestyle raps because he wants to be a Youtube sensation. He is the comic relief, and therefore is key in keeping the tone balanced between comedy and horror. The Visit doesnt have a musical score, which is important when you consider how many so-called horror movies rely on a jolt from the soundtrack to provide a scare. Instead, Mr. Shyamalan who both wrote and directed the film relies on good, old-fashioned filmmaking craftsmanship here, effectively allowing the eeriness to speak for itself without ever making it feel forced. Thats the frustrating thing about Mr. Shyamalan: We know how good he can be (The Sixth Sense) and how bad (The Last Airbender), and it seems the bigger the budget, the worse the movie. With more money (Airbender), which means more tools to play with and more responsibility to show the big budget on screen, the results feel compulsory. In contrast, when his resources are limited, as they were with the $5 million budget on The Visit, hes able to focus on what he has, without being distracted by excess, and provide a better product. Moral of the story: Production companies need to stop giving M. Night Shyamalan boatloads of money. e a l a B h w dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Although it appears the children in the movie shot the lm, it was in fact M. Night Shyamalans camera operators who did most of the lming. The only scene the kids actually shot was the game of Hide-and-Seek, because the camera operator was too big to t under the porch. t-michaels.com Enjoy a Great Selection of Steaks and Fresh Fish, plus Soups, Salads, Burgers, Sliders and More4050 Gulf Shore Boulevard North; Take US 41 to Park Shore Every Night Extended Happy Hour 4 to 7 (in Lounge Only)Friday RIB FEST Half Rack $10 Full Rack $19All-You-Can-Eat Friday FISH FRYw/Fries & Coleslaw $19.00Saturday PRIME RIB DINNER $19 SEAFOOD FEST SEPTEMBER 17TH 25TH All Fresh Fish $25 PLUS Bacon Wrapped Shrimp Appetizer $6!

Famous people, especially royalty, religious leaders, actors and actresses, criminals, heroes and unusual people and scenes of everyday life were modeled in ceramics. Sometimes the figurines show a forgotten activity like grappling (wrestling to the death while tied together) or a boy standing on one leg while holding the other off the ground (a common punishment for the dunce who is failing in school). Thousands of different figurines were made and collectors like to concentrate on a special area like sports, dogs, wild animals, cottages or religious themes. A rare figure of a young Jewish boy was made by the Capo di Monte porcelain works. He has a beard and is wearing a frock coat, yarmulke (skull cap), spats and has a dagger. The 3-inch figure of a boy has the underglaze blue crown and N mark used by the Italian firm. It was estimated at $4,000 to $6,000 at a 2014 Kestenbaum & Co. auction in New York City. Q: My mother had two bedroom chests of drawers that date back over 100 years. The remnants of paper labels read American Walnut, Atlas Furniture Co., Made in Jamestown, New York. One is 31 inches high by 48 inches wide and the other is 40 inches by 37 inches. Both are in great condition. Do they have any value? A: Atlas Furniture Co. was formed in 1883 as the Swedish Furniture Co. by Swedish immigrants Lawrence Erickson and Gustave Holmberg in Jamestown, New York. The name was changed to Atlas in 1871. Furniture was Jamestowns biggest industry by the end of the 1800s. Atlas advertised itself as Manufacturers of Bedroom Furniture, making better grades of bedroom furniture, including dressers, chiffoniers and toilet tables from walnut, mahogany and other woods. By 1920, Atlas was the second largest maker of bedroom furniture in the U.S. At the beginning of the Depression in 1929, the company was 100 percent employee owned and every employee and officer of the company was a stockholder. Atlas closed in 1941, when the once-booming furniture industry of Jamestown was in decline. Your chests would sell for $50 to $100 each. Q: I have a cast iron toy bank that was given to me when I was very small, probably around 1940. Its a zeppelin with large wheels on the front and small wheels on the back. There is a slot for money on the top. Its about 8 inches long and says Gray Zeppelin on the side. Does it have any value? A: The letters may be worn and hard to see. Your bank is a Graf Zeppelin pull toy bank made by the A.C. Williams Company in about 1934. The Graf Zeppelin, a German hydrogen-powered airship, carried passengers from 1928 to 1937 and many companies made toy zeppelins. A.C. Williams Company was originally a manufacturer of flat irons, tools and stoves in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. It moved to Ravenna, Ohio, after a fire destroyed the factory in 1892. It made models of company products as salesmens samples, and began producing banks and toys about 1893. In the 1920s, the company was the worlds largest cast iron bank and toy manufacturer. Production stopped during World War II, and banks were not made again. Cast-iron toys were made after the war until 1977. A.C. Williams Company made a version of this bank without wheels that sells for about $115 to $230. The version with wheels is rarer and sold recently for $440. Q: I have a round label picturing the profile of an Indian chief with a feathered headdress. It reads The Sleepy Eye Mills, Sleepy Eye, Minn., Highest Patent Flour, and Sleepy Eye Cream. What is Sleepy Eye Cream? A: Cream is a brand of flour made by the Sleepy Eye Flour Milling Company. The company started out in Sleepy Eye, Minnesota, in 1883. It went into receivership in 1909, reopened in Minneapolis in 1914 and closed permanently in 1921. Sleepy Eye flour was packed in barrels. Original round barrel labels are stone lithographs. Reproductions have been made using printing presses or computer printers that show dots. Most round 16-inch in diameter labels found today are reproductions and sell online for $3 to $20. Tip: Remove all photographs from a room that is being painted and wait about two weeks before putting them back in the room. Paint fumes can damage photographs.

Figurines often pictured the unfamiliar citizens and activities of their day. This 19thcentury Jewish boy can be identified by his beard and clothing. It was estimated at more than $4,000 at a Kestenbaum & Co. auction in New York.
FULL STEAMA special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | FALL 2015 INSIDE: Listening up 2 City partnerships 4 Florida Fellows 4 Breakfast of champions 4 our GIVING MATTERS ONE OF MY FAVORITE MEMORIES OF STARTING a new school year was the inevitable first assignment: the what I did over summer vacation essay. I am guessing many of you took part in a similar back-to-school ritual. I remember it fondly and designed many of my summer break plans to make sure I had something interesting to write about. In Southwest Florida, summertime was once the break we all enjoyed to gear up for another season. But by all accounts and from my own personal observations, there was no slowdown in our region this summer. In fact, many exciting endeavors were underway, particularly in the world of change-makers those trying to make a difference here in Southwest Florida. For them, the work kept right on going. This issue of our newsletter feels a bit like those essays I used to write when it was time to reminisce about a wonderful summer. There are stories of popular summer enrichment camps offered by foundation fund holders Ryan and Hilary Shore of Full STEAM Ahead and the work of our Florida Fellows from the University of Floridas public interest communications program who were placed in some of our grantee nonprofits. We can also share stories about our new board of trustees officers who accepted the charge as well as the framework for the FutureMakers Coalition developed by people from all corners of the region. There was a lot of exciting work happening nonstop here this summer. Our community foundation team gathered in the spirit of philanthropy during meetings with professional wealth advisors and trust and estate attorneys. We could not do our important work without their support. Now that we are all back to school, so to speak, we hope you will join us at some of the interesting events we have planned this season. And, as always, if you want to be part of creating an essayworthy story of your own in our community, please contact me at iamlistening@ floridacommunity.com or call. Here we go!

COURTESY PHOTOS AHEADSEE STEAM, 2 RYAN AND HILARY SHORE BELIEVE SO strongly in merging music and arts with science, math and technology, they quit their day jobs as public school teachers to launch educational enrichment summer camps and after-school programs for Lee and Collier County students. For the Bonita Springs couple and new parents, their Full STEAM Ahead program introduces the components they believe could be enhanced in public education mainly music and art in a fun learning environment. We identified a need for children to exercise their creativity outside of the normal classroom, said Mr. Shore, a former elementary school teacher in Social Entrepreneurs Dedicated to Changing our Region one student at a time Campers showing off their 3D printed creations.

| A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | FALL 2015 2 | our Naples and 2014 recipient of the prestigious Golden Apple for excellence in education. Weve had a great response and the community has been very generous helping us. STEAM is an acronym for Science Technology Engineering Arts Music and the Shores programs are available to all children regardless of family income, grades or skill levels. As social entrepreneurs, the Shores have discovered how to combine their personal passion and business acumen to make meaningful change in the region. The couple started Full STEAM Ahead as a test camp with 11 students during the summer of 2014. This summer, they hosted more than 200 children and offered 30 morning and afternoon sessions. As an innovative for-profit business, Full STEAM Ahead also incorporates an important nonprofit component, relying on donations to fund camp fees for families unable to pay the cost of tuition. Through a partnership with the SWFL Community Foundation, the Shores have established a fund in which they donate to nonprofits that provide support to students that could not otherwise attend their camps. Hilary is a preK-12th grade music teacher, choir director and private instructor for voice, piano, guitar and flute. We want to reach out to as many families and students as possible, said Mr. Shore. Our camps are designed with enrichment in mind and are not just for students who excel in the classroom. So many children today might struggle with reading or math but theyre technology wizards or musically inclined. Matthew Hubbard, 12, of Naples, attended three STEAM camps during the summer, declaring it extremely fun. The best camp ever. Hes already begging mom Cheri Hubbard to return next summer. Matthews sessions included Minecraft, robotics and music composition. At STEAM the popular Minecraft computer game taught campers to work together in teams, focus on problemsolving skills and plan ahead for potential complications. Parishioners at St. Leos Catholic Church and St. John the Evangelist in Naples plus Catholic Charites were absolutely instrumental in paying fees that got kids through our doors, Mr. Shore said. Ryan and Hilary represent true change-makers who have identified a need and responded, re-imaging their careers to create programs that reintroduce children to art and music, engineering and design, project-based learning and large-scale problem solving skills, said Sarah Owen, president and CEO of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation. We love the opportunity to partner with social entrepreneurs like the Shores who want to not only build a thriving business in our community but to use that business as a platform to enrich the lives of students and families in our region through an assistance program. These programs are disappearing from our schools, said Mr. Shore, a recognized innovator in science, technology, engineering and math, or the STEM program more public schools are following. Our dream is that every kid, every 10th or 100th who comes through our door will find future success and their career path. For more information about the camps, visit www.fullsteamaheadFL. com.

FALL 2015 | | A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | 3 our N-THE-COMMUNITY RESEARCH THAT SHOWS the real challenges and issues facing some women and girls in Southwest Florida is helping members of the Womens Legacy Fund make a more informed decision in awarding its 2015 grant. Cindy Banyai, an evaluation and research consultant for the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, met with resident in Naples, Cape Coral, Harlem Heights in Fort Myers and students from Dunbar High School who voiced their concerns about access to healthcare, the economic divide, school policies, personal safety and other issues affecting their quality of life. We sometimes assume we know what people need, said Dr. Banyai, who earned a doctorate researching community development, public administration, evaluation and governance. By going to the end users, the women and children were trying to help, we found out how best to serve them. The community foundation is being the steward of information and demonstrating the value of the voices of these women and children. Participants talked openly about their everyday challenges and scribbled thoughts on sticky notes. Real people and real voices included a teacher who felt school policies prevented migrant parents from participating in their childrens classroom; a woman unable to escape poverty because of the staggering cost of healthcare for a chronic medical condition; and a high school student who sees no opportunity or stimulation in her community and dreams of one day escaping. `One student came in with a whole plan, says Dr. Banyai. She said cameras installed at the area public pool would make people accountable and disciplined, and therefore make the venue safer for everyone. She was very excited someone would listen and care. The whole process empowered these women from start to finish. The research, presented by Dr. Banyai during the WLFs spring luncheon, allowed the group to rethink the way it awards grant funding and requested proposals that were aligned with the perspective of the women and girls in Southwest Florida. Cindys research really got the women thinking about various issues, says Christina Harris Schwinn, a Prima Donor to the WLF and Fort Myers attorney who served as a facilitator during the luncheon. Going to the end users and soliciting their input is very effective. This really shows how the community foundation and the Womens Legacy Fund are rethinking their roles in the community. We dont want to just write a check. In the past, non-profit organizations partnered with the WLF and the community foundation on pre-selected topics. This year, potential nonprofit partners were asked to submit ideas addressing the results of Dr. Banyais research. Weve always followed a top-down approach, says Christina Parker, a member of the WLFs grant committee. What Cindy did is a more bottom-up approach about what people in the community thought. Someone at the meeting said, I think weve always felt if we work on programs and projects to help the underserved, we build it and they will come with us. Thats not always true. Neighborhood safety for girls and women, the lack of youth programs and access to goods and services were the top three issues identified by Dr. Banyai. The WLF voted to request proposals that will bring additional resources into a specific neighborhood. Agencies were asked to develop their proposals to show how they can implement real change and bring more needed services to a neighborhood. This research is our output and were now relying on the community and nonprofits to identify which neighborhoods theyll work with and why to move us toward outcomes, says Dr. Banyai. The committee has reviewed the grants and conducted a compassionate shark tank to give the organizations with the top ideas an opportunity to share their strategy to increase access to goods and services. The successful idea will be awarded the 2015 Womens Legacy Fund grant during the groups Oct. 22 luncheon. The Womens Legacy Fund was established in 2007 and consists of women who have contributed at least $250 each year to the fund. Half of annual contributions are endowed; the remaining 50 percent supports that years grant. Prima Donors give a minimum of $10,000, and become lifelong WLF contributors with the one-time contribution. Anyone interested in receiving an invitation to the October luncheon can call the foundation or email WLF@floridacommunity.com. For more information, please visit www. floridacommunity.com/give.

| A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | FALL 2015 4 | our Storytelling seems to be the buzzword in professional communications these days. And who would know better than college students immersed in public interest communications and one of Southwest Floridas most noted public relations specialists? This summer, the Southwest Florida Community Foundation hosted four students from the University of Florida as part of the inaugural Florida Fellows program. The students worked in three nonprofit organizations during an eight-week paid fellowship with the goal of increasing communications and enhancing storytelling. Amy Gravina, a retired Southwest Florida public relations professional, saw the universitys public interest communications program as a good fit for Southwest Florida. Our family is a long-time supporter of the University of Florida and when I saw what was happening in the public interest communications program, I wanted to be part of bringing it to my hometown, she says. By helping provide real-world experience for students as well as supporting the great work of the community foundation, this was a win-win-win all the way around. The Florida Fellows program launched this spring with a two-day communications workshop led by the university staff and attended by leaders from the nonprofit organizations awarded 2015 community foundation grants. Increasing public awareness is part of the foundations commitment to working with grant recipients to tell their stories, learn together, share best practices, and develop program goals and outcomes for measuring success, building capacity and promoting the long-term sustainability of their program. The Fellows were assigned to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Gulf Coast Symphony and Naples Botanical Garden all 2015 foundation grant recipients. The Florida Fellows program was established through a partnership between the Southwest Florida Community Foundation and the University of Floridas College of Journalism and Communications, which offers the nations only program in public interest communications. It was supported by Amy Gravina; Ann Christiano, Frank and Betsy Karel Endowed Chair in Public Interest Communications at UF; and the Al and Nancy Burnett Charitable Foundation. OCLike many of you, we had company this summer. Lumina Foundation coaches visited the Southwest Florida Community Foundation to share 20 years of coalition-building experience. John Burnett, chief executive officer of the Community Education Coalition, and Jack Hess, executive director of the Institute for Coalition Building, led a discussion with some of Southwest Floridas most prominent community stakeholders who have stepped up as part of the Champions Team for the FutureMakers Coalition. With the help of Lumina Foundation and our coaches, the Champions Team plays a pivotal role in increasing postsecondary degrees and certifications in our five-county region. Our Champions include leaders from education, economic development, business and government who are committed to transforming Southwest Floridas workforce and creating a more vibrant economy. Its always exciting to learn from others who have demonstrated success in addressing challenges similar to those we face in Southwest Florida, said Sarah Owen, president and CEO of the community foundation, which is serving as the anchor organization for Lumina Foundations Community Partnership for Attainment network. As one of 75 metropolitan areas working alongside Lumina Foundation to increase post-secondary attainment nationwide, Southwest Floridas coaches provide guidance, resources and bes t practices in building the FutureMakers Coalition and increasing the number of working age adults with degrees and certifications from 27 percent to 40 percent by 2025. Check it out at www.FutureMakers Coalition.com. OCCultivating Regional Change for Common Good, the mission of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, signifies an all-inclusive partnership of people with varying backgrounds and life experiences and a willingness to think outside the box to make communities even better. As part of the foundations goal to promote meaningful regional change, staff members spent time this summer working with city of Fort Myers employees to explore opportunities for public-private partnerships with some of its nonprofits. Among the exciting discussions is a proposed collaboration between the Imaginarium and the Southwest Florida Museum of History to create a state-of-the-art science and history museum and a merged board of directors. While still a work in progress, the business leaders who volunteer on the now-merged boards recognize this public-private-partnership will enhance the learning and discovery experience for visitors and residents of Fort Myers, Lee County and Southwest Florida; provide economic benefits; contribute to the development and retention of a highly-skilled workforce; and serve as potential catalyst for redevelopment along the Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard corridor. We all know that government plays an important role in our communities and has a unique responsibility to create a return on taxpayers investments that benefit the people, economy and place, said Tessa LeSage, director of social innovation and sustainability for the Southwest Florida Community Foundation. This exciting project is an excellent example of government using community resources to rethink a business model and address needs in new and progressive ways. Want to know more?

By Amy Swen, Port CharlotteLike a whisper, the wind passed gently across my face as it coaxed me along on my morning bike riding ritual. With the hum of the wheels beneath me, I became aware of newspapers patiently waiting to be read, sidewalks to be swept and owerbeds to be pruned. With anticipation in the air, lawn mowers were in waiting like lions, preparing for their daily meal. There was a quiet stillness. Along the bank of a backyard slope lie an alligator. He too was living in the moment soaking up the sun to gain his warmth for the day. His curved body sat motionless as he presented an aura of unpredictability. He was a ghastly creature; all teeth, scales and claws. I rode along and carried his image with me. Slowly doors began to open, shades were raised and car engines started their morning rumble as the day opened its eyes. When I got home I showered and as I glanced into the bathroom mirror, I was reminded of the gator. My own rough, somewhat scaly skin winked back at me. My imperfections were evident and it gave me an unsettling feeling. Throughout history, mirrors have had an interesting appeal. As a looking glass, mirrors have been thought to possess magical powers. They have been known to tell who is the fairest in the land, and who is not. To confront these imperfections, I found myself with little piles of lotions, ointments, mascara and lip balm. And so at that moment, I decided to purchase an actual dressing table. After several days of searching, I settled on a writing desk. It was painted with bright fun colors and could hold items inside the drop-down lid area. It left me with space on top as well. What it was lacking however, was a mirror. I scoured the usual local department stores for the perfect mirror, but everything was either too big or too stylish. So I determined that a trip to the antique district was in order. As I headed down the street, I took my familiar route and there he was the gator. His left eye sparkled as the sunlight bounced from the waters edge in a split second to my windshield. With unease I muttered, Hello, my friend. The drive to Arcadia was transformational. After just a few stoplights, and an underpass, I moved from sounds of tires, horns and swishing cars to birds chirping, trees rustling and a far-off stray cow announcing its presence. As I approached the stretch of antique shops, my mind was already in another time and place. The rst store I entered had the familiar musty smell. The door creaked as I stepped into an era of forgotten items. Glass lamps, large wooden cabinets, china bowls and jewelry no longer worn, greeted me. I circled the shops like a foreign visitor, admiring the goods of long ago. When I had almost given up hope of nding a mirror there it was hanging nonchalantly on the wall among old pictures and plaques! It was an 1880s mirror, about 2 feet long and 1 foot wide, which I assessed would t perfectly about my desk-dresser. It had beveled edges with a 1-inch curved wooded frame; it was Simple Reminder GulfviewDentistry.com 239.300.9693NO INSURANCE? NO PROBLEM.

The price was right, so I wrapped it in a soft cloth, put it into the trunk of my car and headed home. As I approached the corner near my street I gave a eeted glance to the familiar slope. Yep there he was; a stoic statue exuding fear. I eyed the distance above the dresser and tapped the hammer as the nail con dently took its place. I gingerly hung the mirror and sat down proudly, enjoying my latest conquest. Then something unexpected happened. As I sat admiring the clear shine of the glass and the deep, warm wood of the mirror frame, I became aware of all my predecessors who had done the same thing many, many years ago. Did a young woman glance into this mirror just before her wedding? Did a distraught man adjust his hat before going to a funeral? Did an aged woman cry hopelessly while looking into the mirror, searching for answers? Did a playful mother bounce a baby on her knee while making funny faces? The essence of those before me was evident and their presence surrounded me like a warm blanket. I looked into the mirror, and this time I didnt see my imperfections. Instead, I saw the heart of us all. The looking glass had become a window to the soul. I realized that being the fairest of them all requires an understanding that truly is skin deep. The next morning as I gallantly pedaled along on my morning routine I once again spied my gator. Con dently, he soaked up the sun on his blanket of grass. His skin was rough. His teeth were sharp and his expression bestowed terror, but deep down, I could see that he was just a simple creature enjoying the day, just like the rest of us. This gentle soul, masked by his tough exterior, was doing what his ancestors had always done. He was a symbol of inner strength and courage and I loved this simple reminder.

Will it be back for another season? I thought it would be back over the summer. Patrick K., via emailA: Season two of the hit TNT spy thriller based on the award-winning book by master spy-novelist Robert Littell returns at 10 p.m. Monday, Nov. 2. The show has been completely revamped, with a new supporting cast, locations and more. Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings) returns as an undercover FBI agent whose world is turned upside down when he discovers that the life he knew including his name has all been a lie. Now on the run for a murder he didnt commit, he searches for his true identity, following a trail that takes him to London and the European continent, where he discovers a dark and violent past that holds the key to his future survival. Q: Is Wayward Pines coming back next season? Martin B., Palm Springs, Calif.A: Fox decided not to renew the scifi/mystery/thriller, which starred Matt Dillon and Terrence Howard, and was executive-produced by M. Night Shyamalan. Originally intended as a standalone event miniseries, the head honchos at Fox teased that there might be a season two in the works, if the ratings were there. Apparently they werent, because the show was not renewed. At least it wasnt the type of show to leave viewers hanging: Much like how each season of American Horror Story and True Crime are set up, Wayward Pines was a self-contained close-ended series. Q: Is it true that Danny Boyle is going to make a Trainspotting sequel? Samuel R., via emailA: Director Danny Boyle revealed recently that next on his agenda is adapting Irving Welshs 2002 novel Porno the sequel to Trainspotting, which picks up a decade later for the big screen. Danny told deadline.com: All the four main actors (Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle) w ant to come back and do it. Now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together, which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series.

The Hours: Breakfast 7-11 a.m., lunch 11 a.m. to 5 p.m,. dinner 5-10 p.m. daily The Full Menu: edgewaternaples. com The Details: Ive loved grits ever since my first creamy, salty, buttery mouthful with one of my first breakfasts as an 8-year-old transplant to East Tennessee from Nova Scotia. Over the (many) years since then, Ive enjoy grits in all manner of savory and even some sweet iterations, but perhaps none as much as I enjoyed my recent entre at Coast. Instead of a mound of cheesy, garlicky grits with some shrimp arranged on top, at Coast the dish comes out as a big bowlful of everything plump shrimp, tender grits, roasted corn, chorizo and peppery baby arugula mixed together, almost like a casserole but with a lot more panache. Kiss my grits? You bet I did. Unfortunately, the dish isnt nearly as photogenic as it is flavorful. But trust me: If you like shrimp and grits, you owe it to yourself to get to Coast, posthaste. One More Thing: The Edgewater is a lovely boutique hotel right on the Gulf of Mexico, but you dont have to check in to dine at Coast. Locals are always welcome.

VINOKiwis, glaciers and lots of great wine at reasonable pricesWhile Ive written in the past about sauvignon blanc from California, Chile and other excellent regions, there are two places in the world where this particular wine really finds a home. The first, of course, is the Loire Valley in France, where the grape is believed to have originated, and where it reaches a truly pure expression. The second is New Zealand, where its crafted in a completely different style. Of course, we have to sample them both, but well deal with the Loire another time. When wine geeks discuss the subject among themselves, one question is often asked: What was the bottle that did it for you? Meaning, what wine did you taste that opened your eyes, triggered the passion, changed your life and wounded your wallet? For us, it was a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Cloudy Bay, in fact, which about 20 years ago, did much to put New Zealand sauv blancs on the worldwide map. Unlike the relatively subtle sauvignon blancs from the Loire, the Kiwis are a whole different barrel of juice. Their wines smack you in the face with fresh zingy flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, gooseberry, lychee and grass on a firm frame of bright acidity. Ive always thought that wine is a product of the culture that creates it, and this stuff sort of proves the point. This wine expresses the New Zealanders themselves friendly, open, hospitable and easy to like. Best of all, some excellent examples (90-92 points) can be had in the $20 and under range. As you probably know, the country is comprised of the North Island and the South Island, and wine is made from one end to the other. While the Marlborough region at the top of the South Island is probably best known, dont hesitate to sample the offerings from places like Gisbourne, Martinborough and Hawkes Bay. And, even though they dont often make it to the U.S., wines from Waiheke Island, just off the coast near Auckland, are a lot of fun if you can find them.On the South Island, as mentioned, there are two major regions: Marlborough and Central Otago, which is at the very south end, not far from the Southern Alps. The former is known primarily for sauvignon blanc and some chardonnay, while Central Otago has made a major mark in recent years by producing some excellent pinot noir at insanely reasonable prices.There are so many great (and reasonably priced) wines imported from New Zealand that its hard to keep up with them all, or review as many as Id like in detail. But heres a list of producers I believe youll like: Kim Crawford (sauvignon blanc and pinot noir) Villa Maria Brancott Nobilo (especially the Icon Series sauv blanc) Oyster Bay (great bargain bottle) Felton Road (Central Otago pinot noir not cheap, but very well regarded) Craggy Range (pinot, syrah, merlot, and a whole lot more) Matua Cloudy Bay Ask the Wine WhispererMy local wine store has so many bottles under $15. If a wine is not expensive, does that mean its not good quality? Fran K., Chester, N.Y.Many times, the price of a wine and its quality are way out of whack. There are plenty of highly-rated wines that sell for under $15-$20 a bottle. Several of the producers mentioned in this article are perfect examples of that. Dont be hesitant to sample an inexpensive wine, though I do draw the line at anything under about $10. Sample widely. Write me at vino@ floridaweekly.com with your questions.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 17-23, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C35 CHEF Q&A Meet Kristofer Jubinville: chef, showman, minister, teacher BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comKristofer Jubinville, executive chef and head of catering services at St. Matthews House, has been part of the Naples cuisine scene for quite a few years, most notably as owner of Trail Caf in North Naples until a few years ago when he and his wife sold the restaurant. We were terribly curious about how hes made the transition from being top dog in his own kitchen to heading up a nonprofit program that uses the culinary trade to teach life and professional skills. Read on to learn how he balances his roles as chef, teacher and mentor. Q: How long have you been a chef? A: Ive been a chef for the last 20 years. Q: How long have you been in Naples? A: Going on 10 years now. Q: What is your culinary background? A: My mom is an amazing chef and I grew up at her knee in the kitchen, so it only made sense to get into the business of cooking. I went to culinary school at the world-renowned Johnson & Wales University in Providence, R.I., where I met my wife, Patricia. After graduation, we moved to Miami, where I was on the opening team for the Mandarin Oriental Miami and Conrad Miami. I was able to learn from some awesome chefs there. We came to the west coast of Florida in 2006, when I started working at Tarpon Bay restaurant at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point. I worked there until we bought Trail Caf and Grill in 2010, where I was chef/owner until I started as executive chef of St. Matthews House in 2013. Q: What does being executive chef at St. Matthew's House require? It seems like an unusual position. A: This is the greatest job I have ever had. You have to be equal parts chef, showman, minister and teacher. We dont know what were going to get from one day to the next, so I have to be able to improvise our meals from what our harvest runs bring in. At the same time, we have SMH Catering, which I get to develop menus for and meet with clients. Im also buying food for those caterings and promoting the company, so I have to be part entrepreneur, also. But my favorite role that I play is mentoring and teaching our residents and volunteers about cooking. When they are engaged in St. Matts and I get to invest knowledge and experience back into them, its an amazing feeling. Q: How did you develop the SMH culinary program? What is its focus and how do you accomplish it? A: We have been working in tandem with Catalyst Kitchens in Seattle to develop a culinary curriculum for our Justins Place Recovery Program residents. We were able to graft it onto our recovery program, so it becomes part of their everyday life without losing any of the focus on recovery. The focus is not to start graduating chefs, but to provide life and knife skills so they can find employment and provide for themselves and their families. They start by learning culinary philosophy and principles that my staff and I teach in a classroom format. They also get hands-on practical education by working alongside our chefs in actual production circumstances. As the client goes through the program, the difficulty and complexity of the curriculum increases, until they pass tests to show that they are competent to obtain an entry-level kitchen position. Q: Do participants find employment in food service? A: Many of our graduates have gone on to maintain successful employment in the food service industry here in Naples. Weve seen graduates excel in our barista program, which is a final, optional phase of our program. This phase (working at the coffee bar in the SMH boutique thrift store on AirportPulling Road) allows the client to interact with the general public on a regular basis so they can develop their interaction skills in a safe environment. Q: How does working in a nonprofit environment differ from running your own restaurant? How did you make the adjustment? A: Working at a nonprofit is no less stressful, but youre driven by different results. In a hotel or a restaurant, youre driven by numbers: hours worked, food cost, etc. Working at St. Matthews House, we pay attention to those numbers and theyre important to us because we want to be good stewards of what God blesses us with, but what drives us is engagement. Are our volunteers engaged in the mission? Is the staff engaged in the everyday operations and are they reflecting the core values of the mission adequately? Its very interpersonal work. I had to change from a surly, angry chef who motivated people through intimidation to a chef who really wants to reflect my love and passion I have for my profession and the people I do it for and with. This place has really transformed my heart and attitude. Q: How does living and working in Naples affect or inspire your work? A: Working in this area for as long as I have has given me a chance to meet the people whose lives have been changed through St. Matthews House. Naples really is a small town at its core. I meet friends of friends every day through my work. It motivates me and reminds me that there is still work to do in the fight against homelessness and addiction. We live in an area where the nicest neighborhoods have some of the poorest people living on the next block. What I want to do, through my work in this ministry, is compel the first group to start caring about and reaching out to the second. Q: Any local trends you see coming down the pipeline? A: Generally, I see people moving back to the artisanal cuisine that this countrys food culture was founded on. We are a country of foodies now. We dont want the homogenized cuisine of prior generations. People are brining their own pickles, curing their own bacon, smoking their own salmon. There are craft cheeses, beers and preserves being made right here in Southwest Florida that are some of the best Ive ever had. The farm-to-table phenomenon has also encouraged this mindset. People are creating their own food not just cooking it themselves and its awesome. The mystique of cuisine is dissipating and people are making compelling food and drink, for themselves and the marketplace. The results are making a very robust gourmet scene in Naples. 700 Fifth Avenue South, Naples, Florida 34102 239.659.7008 Visit www.VerginaRestaurant.com For Our Menu WELL REOPEN FOR LUNCH AND DINNER ON SEPTEMBER 19!
