Amendments MAKING SENSE OF YOUR BY OSVALDO PADILLAopadilla@ oridaweekly.comThe decisions are yours to make: Should we maintain the status quo when it comes to solar energy, or should we leave the door open to alternative business models?

BY MARY WOZNIAKSpecial to Florida Weekly When Maureen Yuster moved to Southwest Florida 25 years ago, she thought she knew what to expect. I guess I had a certain mental picture of what the community was like in Florida a bunch of happy retirees, golfing, playing on the beach, she said. What she eventually discovered was that not everyone was happy, not everyone was retired, not everyone was playing golf or playing on the beach. Many were hungry. More often than not, they didnt know where their next meal was coming from. Ms. Yuster, a former Washington, D.C. consultant, wanted to help. So she started volunteering at the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida. She has logged more than 1,000 hours over the last eight years. Shes one of the thousands of volunteers who make the food bank run. In honor of April as National Volunteer Month, Feeding America, a nationwide network of 200 food banks, including Harry Chapin Food Bank, is celebrating the volunteers who fuel the fight against hunger.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYArt, ladies and gentlemen, is a form of loveRemember that old question, the one that defies any generation gap known to humankind by reinserting itself into schoolyard conversations across time and space? No, not that one not the one about what goes where. The other one, about trees falling in the forest. If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make any noise? Curious kids have asked that question forever. And now a solid half-century after first trying to wrestle it to the ground and tie it off like a cowboy on a steer, I finally have the answer. The question is not really about trees, its about art and culture, Ive come to realize. What if the worlds greatest single orchestra or a generations most accomplished painter or the most lyrical and probing writer in recent centuries presents a dazzling work of art on a mountaintop in Montana, but only bighorn sheep form the audience. Is it art? Lets not dawdle around with this: Hell, no. Its merely lost. So no, the falling tree doesnt make any noise unless somebody can hear it fall. That simple revelation came to me the other day when I decided to rattle their cages a little by phoning up a few rainmakers people who make art happen. Not the artists themselves, but their enablers, the ones who bring the audience to the mountain. Whats the point, I asked them? Why art and why in the world are you spending your time promoting it? You cant do anything with it. Art wont get you a job, carpet bomb your enemies, establish your second house in Paris or Punkin Center (Kansas), build a wall on the Mexican border or send a manned craft to the moon. And it wont grow the hair back on your bald head (in my case) or fix the leaky valve in your heart, either one. So whats the point of it? I was feeling pretty good about my wise-guy question when I got on the phone with Amy Ginsburg, acting executive director of the Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestra, led by Maestro Nir Kabaretti. Pitchers who think their fastballs are pretty good because they approach 100 mph probably feel the same way just before they watch one blasted back over the centerfield wall 400 feet behind them. So, Ms. Ginsburg, I said confidently, what really is the point of art, especially music that was composed 200 years ago? Without so much as a hiccup or a pause, Ms. Ginsburg met my hardball question with the smooth stroke of another: Whats the point of love? she asked sweetly. Oh, the crack of that bat. I dont know about you, but Im a love man, myself. Love is air and water, love is food and shelter, love is the light that lets you see hope in a day that starts dark and gets darker. Art, ladies and gentlemen, is a form of love. Being no fool, I thanked her pleasantly for the experience of a short chat about the worlds great issues, and dropped the phone like a hot rock. Rainmakers: 1. Windbag columnist: 0. Ms. Ginsburg is one of the rainmakers, of course, a woman who somehow stands with a few other mostly uncelebrated souls at the crossroads of a transformative moment of ascension for art and culture in Southwest Florida. By force of personality and passion, Ms. Ginsburg helped Maestro Kabaretti harness not just dutiful allegiance but passionate devotion from a family of extraordinary musicians who now make up the symphony. They also have a brilliant leader of a brilliant board in a guy named Tom Uhler, a financial planner and cultural rainmaker himself. Youll never see this on the marquee for the Southwest Florida Symphony: TONIGHT, ONE PERFORMANCE ONLY, LUDWIG VON BEETHOVEN, NIR KABARETTI, AMY GINSBURG AND TOM UHLER, IN PERFORMANCE WITH 70 OTHER PEOPLE WHO ALSO SPENT THEIR LIVES PREPARING FOR THIS MOMENT. But that, in fact, is the truth of the matter when it comes to bringing transformative experiences to you and me, without our really having to go anywhere, except to the performance.In Ms. Ginsburgs case, she can appeal both to young audiences and old; to donors; and to the family of musicians themselves. I know, because Ive watched that happen. When they need a practice room or a meal as they come into town from New York or Miami or somewhere else, they can go to her house and find it, if they ask.And she isnt the only one. Theres Jim Griffith, a longtime violist (Julliard trained) with the Naples Philharmonic who directs the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in Fort Myers. Theres Eric Raddatz, whose widely celebrated Fort Myers Film Festival is a cultural loadstone here (Mr. Raddatz is an artist and graphic designer for Florida Weekly). Theres Lydia Black, who directs the Lee Alliance for the Arts. Rainmakers such as Myra Daniels, founder of the Philharmonic Center for the Arts in Naples, and Michele Valencourt at the Visual Arts Center in Punta Gorda did this for years in their communities, which are now our community. We are one community, these days. And we now have a flock of urbane, experienced theater directors who have changed the nature of stage drama and its importance in the region: Robert Cacioppo with Carrie Lund at the Florida Repertory Theatre, and Annette Trossbach at the Laboratory Theater of Florida, and Bill Taylor at Theatre Conspiracy, and Will Prather at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. The rainmakers. Long may they prosper, because if they do, we will too. c m e e a roger matterbrothersfurniture.comMonday-Saturday 10am-6pm, Sunday 12pm-5pmNaples, Ft.

Though it was downgraded to a Category 3 hurricane when it hit the mainland, its massive size and earlier intensity delivered a gargantuan storm surge deep into the coastlines of Mississippi, southeast Louisiana and Alabama. The great city of New Orleans took it on the chin. It was engulfed in floodwaters of up to 20 feet, destroying its schools and flooding four out of five of its homes. Katrina laid waste to the citys businesses, financial institutions and its entire infrastructure, including its transportation, water and sewer systems and power grid. Few who saw the scenes will ever forget the images of human misery and the breadth of the devastation and mayhem in the storms wake. The rescue of thousands of citizens was botched from the beginning by the bureaucratic fumbling of federal and state agencies. Those responsible were ill-prepared to muster a coherent plan of coordinated disaster relief. Days went by before basic supplies of food, water and medical assistance were available to those desperate for help. Who was to blame? As it turned out, there were legions of those who shared responsibility for what went wrong. Of those culpable, the Army Corps of Engineers was first in line. The failure of the levees was the principal cause of the flooding in New Orleans, flooding exacerbated by the Corps neglect of the agencys Mississippi River Gulf Outlet Canal (MR-GO). MR-GO resulted in the channeling of Katrinas storm surge directly into the heart of the city. The Army Corps faulty administration of the design, engineering, construction and management of the regions flood protection failed miserably to protect the city and surrounding parishes. Levee failure was a direct cause of an estimated 1,400 deaths. The trail of blame ran from the Corps to the citys mayor, on to the Louisianas governors office, all the way up to President George W. Bush. It was President Bush who said to Michael Brown, head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Brownie, youre doing a heck of a job. Anyone paying attention and millions were knew differently. President Bushs misspoken praise epitomized a federal government out of touch and ill-prepared to respond to the disaster. The U.S. National Guard and people heroically helping people filled the void, rescuing some 34,000 people in New Orleans alone. New Orleans is a brutal lesson about what can go wrong when a disaster strikes. But what came before, in the decades leading up to the storm, is more crucial for vulnerable coastal communities seeking to avoid a similar fate. It is a litany of the terrible downsides associated with turning a blind eye to known, future risks. Because in New Orleans, it was not a question of if a Katrina might one day take aim at the city; it was question of when the citys luck would run out? Florida is in a pre-Katrina state of mind. Its been more than 10 years without a major storm. A complacent public expects and lawmakers in majority presume Florida will go on escaping the destiny of its geography as a Ground Zero for tropical storms and rising seas. The state Legislature has abandoned its commitment to protecting the environment just at the moment in time the states margin of overkill is all used up. Sustainability is out the window. Over-development is proceeding at full tilt along our coastlines, the states most environmentally sensitive areas are under siege, and the states freshwater supply is seriously threatened. The consequences lie in wait of the inevitable storm that will sweep our folly away. Andrew Freeman of Climate Central writes, New Orleans isnt the only major U.S. city at risk weaker hurricanes can also do significant damage in places. Many American coastal cities are essentially sitting ducks to hurricanes, with millions of Americans living at waters edge, exposed to high winds and flooding. He could have easily been talking about Miami and the St. Petersburg/ Tampa Bay area. These metro areas are among the top five identified nationally as extremely vulnerable to hurricanes and flooding from storm surges. Florida has 1,350 miles of coastline. Some 2.4 million people and 1.3 million homes sit within 4 feet of the local high tide line, Climate Central reports. Sea level rise is more than doubling the risk of a storm surge at this level in South Florida by 2030. The states population has increased by more than 2 million people since 2005. Overbuilding, sea-level rise, saltwater intrusion into freshwater aquifers and inland flooding are far more common. A majority of coastal residents have no clue about the potential of storm surge risk in their areas, nor any appreciation that storm surge accounts for most hurricane-related deaths. Florida residents and the states leadership are in desperate need of a wakeup call, but is anyone listening? Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian. Her professional career spans more than 25 years leading major philanthropic institutions in the South and Appalachia.

No arrests were made. The episode is part of a nationwide trend of Trump supporters writing pro-Trump messages on sidewalks, stairs and other surfaces at college campuses, where fainting fits are sure to ensue. When they could get no relief from law enforcement, the University of Michigan students took it upon themselves to erase the offending messages including Trump 2016, Build the Wall and Stop Islam while fighting through feelings of betrayal. One student complained that there should be a special emergency number to call in such cases and said that the administrations inadequate response perpetuates these really racist and hateful stereotypes that turn into violence and turn into students of color feeling unsafe on campus. Rarely before have a few scribblings been so traumatizing and written not even in ink or paint or some other difficult-to-remove substance, but in the same chalk used to mark out hopscotch courts and write temporary promotional messages about sorority mixers. That chalk messages can be considered tantamount to a physical threat captures the crisis of free speech on campus perfectly. Pro-Trump chalking took off after the reaction at Emory University, where some students were reduced to tears by the messages and said they felt fear. Protesters gathered at an administration building and let loose the antiphonal chant You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain! This might have been an appropriate response if the kids had been tear-gassed, rather than seeing a positive phrase about a candidate that is supported by some significant plurality of the American public. The president of the school, James Wagner, promised to review security footage to try to identify the perpetrators, and in a statement full of campusdiversity jargon pledged, among other things, immediate refinements to certain policy and procedural deficiencies and regular and structured opportunities for difficult dialogues. How about striking an even greater blow for diversity and asking the kids to get over seeing an anodyne political message that they disagree with? To his credit, Wagner himself chalked Emory stands for free expression, a message that will evidently have trouble penetrating the formidable incuriosity of some of his students. The reaction to the chalkening, as its become known on social media, is a testament to the electric charge surrounding Trump. This branding isnt prudent positioning for a general election, but it makes Trump a perfect vehicle for provoking the other side, and its in that thumb-in-the-eye spirit that the Trump chalking is spreading. The students getting the vapors over it dont understand free expression or what it means to live in a free society, where you inevitably encounter people who have ideas and support candidates that you oppose. They hate Donald Trump. Fine. That is reason to argue and agitate against him, not to seek protection from any contact with supporters of his, no matter how tenuous. If they are having a hard time handling this election cycle, just imagine how Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus feels. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

PROFILE IN PARADISEFinding her fun in the serious business of early childhood educationLow-income working parents with preschoolers need a nurturing environment for their kids while theyre on the job. Fun Time Early Childhood Academy was established more than 55 years ago to do just that in Naples. The mission of Fun Time is to provide safe, quality, affordable education and care to children of low-income working families and to prepare them for kindergarten so they start school ready to read and ready to learn. Fun Time is nationally accredited and Florida Gold Seal certified. The school has a contract with Collier County Public Schools as a Head Start provider, and it is also an approved Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten provider. Teachers with early childhood degrees and credentials educate Fun Times 100 children year-round, full-time, Monday-Friday. Tuition is based on a familys ability to pay; breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack are provided at no additional charge. For years, Fun Time functioned in a dilapidated doublewide trailer. In October 2005, Hurricane Wilma came through Naples leaving a path of destruction in its wake. The trailer lost its roof and was completely flooded. Blue tarpaulins were secured and a new roof followed, but old age and permanent damage limited the trailers days for serving the preschools 50-some students. One year later, as bankruptcy threatened the shutter to school forever, Naples residents Peter and Sue Manion gathered a new board of directors and as co-chairs set out to protect and preserve the institution. The Community Foundation and United Way of Collier County provided emergency funding to keep the doors open. As patching and repairing continued to be part of the daily routine for the doublewide, the boards search for additional financial assistance spread in every direction. Plans for a new building had been discussed for years prior to Wilma, but now it was a race against time. The Naples Children & Education Foundation awarded a significant matching grant to initiate the building campaign. Others in the community responded generously, and the new building on 12th Street North in downtown became a reality in January 2009. Barbara Tyrrell now leads the Fun Time staff as executive director and is proud of its many success stories. One of our graduates who is now in second grade visited our school recently and stated that when he entered school he skipped a grade because he got smart at Fun Time, she says. It just doesnt get any better than that. Barbara previously was director of family resources for the Early Learning Coalition of Southwest Florida. She has earned national recognition for staff performance and innovative service plans and is a published contributor in an anthology for childcare professionals and the Journal of the American Medical Association. Born in Westchester County, N.Y., she grew up in North Plainfield, N.J., with one older brother. Their parents worked in the medical field. She has five children, including two daughters ages 15 and 19 who are still at home. Fun Time is enrolling students for the summer Voluntary Pre-K program that runs from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, June 6-Aug. 5. From learning their ABCs and 1, 2, 3s to enjoying playtime and sharing family-style meals with their teachers, VPK youngsters are prepared to start kindergarten ready to read and ready to learn. Participants must be 4 years of age as of Sept. 1, 2015, and cannot have attended another VPK program. The Fun Time VPK program is open to the public, but space is limited.

commercials. Then there are the three other amendments, the no-brainers. Theyre tax breaks and credits that have received overwhelming support. Theyre hard to argue against and almost assured passage. Amendment 3 gives first responders who have been disabled a property tax exemption. Amendment 5 allows seniors to keep their property values fixed in order to protect them from tax increases. Amendment 4, which will appear on the primary ballot Aug. 30, grants tax credits for solar and other alternative energy devices. The amendment would repeal personal property taxes on solar energy equipment, and exempt real estate taxes on solar devices the value of the solar equipment would not count toward the assessed value of your property. The measure has received broad support from environmental activists utility companies. Both the House and Senate voted unanimously to place the amendment on the ballot. The broad support it received a super-super majority of more than 75 percent qualified the amendment to appear earlier on the ballot, separating it from the more controversial solar power measure that voters will consider in November. I think everyone saw the wisdom of having it in the primary ballot so it wouldnt be on the ballot with the other solar amendments and have the public confused, said Rep. Ray Rodrigues of Fort Myers, one of the amendments sponsors. Florida voters can amend the states constitution by passing an amendment with 60 percent of the vote. Initiative petitions, such as Amendments 1 and 2 on solar and marijuana, currently require 689,149 signatures to get on the ballot. Other amendments, such as the tax breaks for seniors, are referred and approved by the legislature without a citizen signature process. Amendment 1: Solar status quoAmendment 1 puts into law the way that residential solar has been operating for years in Florida. It was created as a response to another proposal backed by environmentalists and the solar panel industry that could have dramatically changed the business model for how Floridians get their energy. What is on the ballot in November, however, codifies the status quo. Currently, consumers with solar panels sell their electricity back to the utility companies at a set rate. Its fairly simple, says Jim Kallinger of Consumers for Smart Solar, a group funded by the utility companies to push for the amendment. (The amendment) guarantees a framework of rights for consumers to own their solar equipment, but it ensures that government can protect the health and welfare of those who use solar. The measure made it onto the ballot only after the Florida Supreme Court approved it by a 4-3 vote. In her dissent, Justice Barbara Pariente called out the amendment as masquerading as prosolar. She wrote: This proposed constitutional amendment, supported by some of Floridas major investor-owned electric utility companies, actually seeks to constitutionalize the status quo. The ballot title is misleading by its focus on Solar Energy Choice, when no real choice exists for those who favor expansion of solar energy. The group that opposed to the measure that appears on the ballot, Floridians for Solar Choice, had argued before the court that the amendment was misleading and that it actually reduces options for consumers. They call themselves Consumers for Smart Solar, its deceptive from the get-go. Everything about it is a lie. Its the utilities hiding behind supposed consumers, says Sean Gallagher, vice president for state affairs for the Solar Energy Industries Association. The status quo keeps the third-party leasing companies out of Florida. It prohibits a low-cost way for customers to go solar. The solar amendment that didnt make the ballot would have allowed thirdparty leasing companies called PPAs to enter the Florida marketplace. The companies lease and install solar arrays to homeowners, significantly reducing the up-front costs of converting a home or business to renewable energy. Floridas major public utilities are publically traded, for-profit companies that are allowed to monopolize the energy market in exchange for letting the PSC regulate them and providing reliable service for all of the states residents via the grid. Companies that sell PPAs would change the electric business model. Residents could potentially sell electricity to their neighbors, cutting out the utilities altogether in some transactions. Furthermore, a national exchange of renewable energy credits called Solar Renewable Energy Certificates would be in the hands of the third-party companies, not the utilities. A shift to this business model could see utilities paying the third-party companies for credits. The amendment thats on the ballot circumvents any major shifts in Floridas solar marketplace. I dont see how (Amendment 1) has an impact to increase or decrease solar. Its an establishment of the status quo. Longterm, I think it will help, because it will ensure the grid is around, which is necessary, said Rep. Rodrigues. By putting what we have into place it will ensure the sustainability of the grid so that we can have power into the future. Amendment 2: Medical marijuana reduxYouve heard this story before. Famous Orlando-based trial attorney John Morgan has poured millions in funds and put his face behind a campaign to legalize medicinal marijuana. The political action committee called United for Care, funded in large part by Mr. Morgan, put the measure on the ballot in 2014, where it failed by a slim margin, garnering almost 58 percent of the 60 percent of votes needed to pass. This time around, the odds look better for the amendment. Almost every poll shows support at well over the 60 percent threshold. In 2014, State Attorney Pam Biondi took the amendment before the state Supreme Court, arguing that it misled the public about its true intent. No such challenge appears to be happening this time around. The amendments defeat two years ago may be the key to its success this time. Language that was ambiguous in 2014 has been tightened up, helping the measure garner endorsements from editorial boards at newspapers throughout the state and thwart some of the attacks that were launched against it before. They were far more organized at this point last time, Ben Pollara, the campaign manager for United for Care, says of the opposition. There was this argument against it that this was marijuana that you can get for anything. They would say, You can get (marijuana) for a hangnail. With the new definition, thats an even more ridiculous argument than it was two years ago. Language was changed to ensure that marijuana could only be prescribed for debilitating medical conditions such as cancer, aids, epilepsy, Crohns disease and similar ailments. Other wording that is now included strengthens provisions for keeping marijuana prescriptions away from minors without parental consent and caregivers who administer marijuana will be required to pass background checks. Medical decisions should be made between doctors and their patients and not the government, said Mr. Pollara. (Marijuana) is safter than most things youll find in your medicine cabinet. If your doctor says it will help you, you should be able to follow your doctors orders without going to jail. Sean Viceroy has spent the past year living away from his wife in Fort Myers so that he can have access to medical marijuana in California. He fills prescriptions for both her and himself, then mails the marijuana illegally to her in Southwest Florida. (Mr. Viceroys name has been changed for this report.) His wife was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in 2014, for which she underwent chemotherapy. Meanwhile, Mr. Viceroy was taking prescription pain medicine known as opioids for chronic back pain. In California, he traded the pills in for cookies infused with marijuana. You can eat a relatively small amount and get really good pain relief. I got out here and I was like, wow. I dont have to take those pills, he says. With opioids, you have a high, then you come down. You get moody, you get short with people. Cannabis doesnt do that to you. Im so glad I dont have to take that stuff (opioids) any more. I actually still have pain meds in my drawer, but I realized that I could treat this pain with yoga and edibles, he says. For her part, the marijuana has helped his wife regain some of her appetite, as well as manage pain. Still, opponents of the measure are concerned that medical marijuana will open doors to access that should remain closed. We are always concerned when theres more access and availability of marijuana, says Diane Ramseyer, executive director of Drug Free Charlotte County. She could not comment specifically on Amendment 2, but she says that any proposal that increases the availability of marijuana also leads to more use among teenagers. She also believes that the ballot is the wrong place to decide on a medical issue. What other medicines are we aware of that are approved that way? That really belongs in the FDA system, not the political process. BALLOTFrom page 1We are always concerned when theres more access and availability of marijuana. Diane Ramseyer, executive director of Drug Free Charlotte County Key DatesPrimary election: Tuesday, Aug. 30 The ballot will include Amendment 4 regarding solar energy tax breaks as well as primaries for some state and local races. Tuesday, Nov. 8 The ballot will include Amendments 1 and 2, as well as the U.S. presidential election. The amendments that didnt make it Citizens can put an amendment to the state constitution on the ballot by using the initiative process. Initiative requirements include creating a political action committee and collecting a minimum of 683,149 signatures. Legislators can also submit amendments. They require a 60 percent supermajority approval by the legislature to appear on the ballot. Out of 42 initiatives that were led for spots on the 2016 ballot, ve made it on. Here are some of the amendments and initiatives that didnt make it, courtesy of Voting Rights Restoration for Felons Amendment Would have restored the right to vote for people with prior felony convictions upon completion of their sentences. The measure died in legislative committee. Florida Cannabis Act Would have legalized marijuana for use for people 21 and over. It would also have regulated the sale and production of marijuana. Organizers did not obtain the required 683,149 signatures required to place the initiative on the ballot. Minimum Wage Increase Initiative Would have raised the hour minimum wage in Florida from $8.05 to $10. The initiative did not garner enough signatures. Medicaid Expansion Amendment The measure would have created the Healthy Florida Plan to expand Medicaid eligibility to low-income residents and established a revenue account to accept federal funds. Supporters of this initiated amendment did not submit the required 683,149 signatures to appear on the ballot. Employees Earned Sick Time Amendment The measure would have required employers with at least ve employees to provide paid sick time and employers with less than ve employees to provide unpaid sick time. Supporters did not submit the 683,149 signatures necessary. New Employee Veri cation Amendment Would have required employers to verify that new employees are authorized to work in the United States by using the U.S. Department of Homeland Securitys E-Verify system. Supporters did not collect enough signatures to qualify. KALLINGERRODRIGUESGALLAGHER POLLARA A8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY

Brown, M.D., F.A.C.S. TIF students inspire continued support from corporations, individuals SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYJaguar Naples and Porsche of Naples are building on a decade of support for The Immokalee Foundation as sponsors of the 2016 Charity Classic Pro-Am and Charity Classic Celebration that take place in November. General Manager Jason Reidel of Jaguar Naples says he is reminded each year at the Charity Classic events about the important work TIF is doing to enrich the lives of Immokalees young people. Its rewarding seeing how The Immokalee Foundation has impacted the students lives and the support they receive from their mentors, Mr. Reidel says. Its heartwarming. When the children get up and tell their stories, you experience the direct impact of what the organization does. TIF students have a 100 percent highschool graduation rate, which demonstrates they are getting the support they need in the face of many challenges, he adds. Many are sons and daughters of agricultural workers, and English is often not the first language spoken in the family. Most also are the first members of their families to graduate high school and aspire to college. Porsche of Naples, under the leadership of General Manager John Harris, also has been a loyal supporter of the annual Charity Classic Celebration dinner and auction. This years gala takes place Friday, Nov. 11, at The Ritz-Carlton Beach Hotel; the scramble-style Pro-Am tournament follows on Monday, Nov. 14, at Bay Colony Golf Club.The money raised by both events continues to help students like Adiline Guadarrama, who qualified, applied for and was accepted into TIFs Take Stock in Children scholarship program while in eighth grade. In ninth and 10th grades at Immokalee High School, schoolwork became much more difficult for her, however, and she seemed to be in danger of failing. TIF program specialists and tutors gave Ms. Guadarrama the special attention she needed to improve. In fact, they helped her improve her grades to straight As. There is no doubt that they want you to succeed, she says. She is now a high school senior making decisions about which college to attend in order to pursue a career as a registered nurse. The success stories of TIF students instill long-term loyalty not only with program staff and TIFs corporate sponsors, but also with the community. Board member Peter Negri originally learned about the foundation through friends who were supporters. Theyre not the kind of folks who would back something that didnt produce results, he says. They liked it and thought it was doing good work, and that was good enough for me. For 10 years now, Mr. Negri has seen the progress students have made progress that keeps both him and his wife active and involved. My wife had two students she mentored, he says, one of them from seventh grade on. I could see that this girl started out very shy, bashful even. Through the years she developed her self-confidence, and now she is out of high school and in college. The more I got to know about The Immokalee Foundation and the fine results they produce, the more involved I became. Echoing those sentiments is Don ONeill, whose leadership and support date back to about 2000. Its just grown and grown, he says. When TIF first started, they had about 250 feet of office space and a part-time secretary. Now, there are hundreds of mentors and 500 students in the reading program alone. The kids, parents and donors have really come through in tremendous fashion. We have just been instruments to make it happen, to provide leadership, experience and energy. Its such an important job to do. Immokalee is a lower-income community, but it has a strong tradition of family sacrifice and self-discipline to give their children a better opportunity. And we do that through education, empowerment and hope. The parents believe in us, the kids believe in themselves, and weve got a great thing going. TIF provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences and life skills development leading to economic independence. To learn more about TIF, including how to volunteer as a mentor, make a donation or include TIF in your estate plans, call 430-9122 or visit Korie and Jason Reidel, general manager of Jaguar Naples, center, with TIF students Lynecee Romelus, Marcos Gonzalez, Luis Parra and Brisa Martinez at the 2013 Charity Classic Celebration.

Mike Flounlacker was named 2016 Volunteer of the Year in recognition. Since signing up for duty in September 2014, Mr. Flounlacker has formed friendships with many of NECs riders as a program leader, sidewalker and groomer/tacker. Hes also well-known as a jack-of-all-trades who is always willing to help with the task at hand, whether its building and installing a new hay baler, repainting the sensory trail chimes, making repairs to the arena gate or putting new batteries in the rider lift. Mike really can do it all, says Kim Minarich, executive director. We are so lucky to have him on our volunteer team. And high-school senior Marissa Tessier was awarded the Deb PT Scholarship in recognition of her weekly volunteer services as sidewalker, groomer, leader and tacker. The scholarship is named in honor of former NEC volunteer Deborah Flanagan-Thornton and is given to encourage more young people to support the NEC mission. Its been awarded each year since 2008 to a graduating senior volunteer who has displayed leadership, reliability, exemplary attitude, compassion and commitment to NECs programs. My experience at NEC has been amazing and Ive grown so much as a person, Ms. Tessier said at the awards reception. I love going every week and seeing the improvements the children are making. Riding brings such joy to them and their parents. Hillary Raines Wilson was honored with the 2015 Bootstrap Boogie Barn Dance Award for her tireless efforts to ensure the silent auction at the 10th annual event was the most successful in NEC history.

The power of precedentDepartment of Veterans Affairs employee Elizabeth Rivera, 39, was fired after her arrest (followed by a February guilty plea) for armed robbery, but when she was sentenced only to probation, an arbitrator ordered the VA to rehire her and give her back pay she earned while sitting in jail awaiting trial. (She had been the driver for a man arrested for a street robbery in San Juan, Puerto Rico.) Riveras union had demanded the reinstatement without salary penalty for fairness because the same Puerto Rico VA office had earlier hired a convicted sex offender, and the offices hospital director, recently charged with DUI and drug possession, avoided VA discipline because of technicalities about the traffic stop.Evolution of the Civil Rights struggleTurmoil in Selma, Ala., March 1965: The historic Bloody Sunday at the Edmund Pettus Bridge ultimately became a turning point in the battle for voting rights. Turmoil in Selma, Ala., March 2016: The town is riven by demands for stricter enforcement of the ordinance requiring horses on the street to be wearing diapers a campaign led by Ward 8s Councilman Michael Johnson (an African-American): Im tired of it because theres other things I could be doing than dealing with horses.Compelling explanations Urges: (1) Ms. Ashton Barton, 33, charged with shoplifting a vibrating sex toy from a CVS pharmacy in Largo in February, tried for police sympathy by explaining that she was in a troubled marriage. My husband doesnt want to touch me anymore, and I would rather do this than be unfaithful. (2) Neighbors of a loudly frisky couple in a Stockholm, Sweden, apartment building were so frustrated by the noise that they reached out to the countrys health minister, Gabriel Wikstrom who took the side of the randy couple (according to a translation by Stockholms The Local): Sounds nice for them, I think. Good for their well being and thus public health as well. Nice Tries: (1) Benjamin Grafius, 39, charged with several instances of indecent exposure to Amish people near New Holland, Pa., told police that he targeted them because he knew they would not use phones to call police (March). (2) Valerie Godbout, 33, visiting Orlando from Montreal and charged with drug possession after alerting police with erratic driving, told the officer that she was on the wrong side of the road because thats the way traffic works in Canada. (Its not.) (March). (3) Emily Davis, 21, caught by police displaying her recently deceased grandmothers handicap-parking badge, explained that she was merely using it in her honor. (Portsmouth, England, February).Breakthroughs in science German researchers, publishing in March, revealed that female burying beetles uniquely discourage their mates from pestering them for sex after birth thus explaining how the male of this species is observed actually helping with child care. The females apparently release a chemical anti-aphrodisiac to the fathers antennae. Said the lead researcher (a woman), They are a very modern family. Said another biology professor (also female), Burying beetles are supercool. Science magazine called the butthole one of the finest innovations in the past 540 million years of animal evolution in that, until it developed, animals only channel of waste removal was through the same opening used for food intake. However, the recent discovery, announced at a March conference by a University of Miami biologist, that gelatinous sea creatures called comb jellies can excrete via other pores, was labeled by the magazine as stunn(ing). The Emerging American Right of Rejecting Science: In 2000, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declared that measles had been eliminated in the United States, but by 2014 Americans had resurrected it (677 reported cases), and researchers from Emory University and Johns Hopkins set out to learn how and recently found the dominant reason to be the purposeful decision by some Americans to refuse or delay widely available vaccinations (especially for their children). (The researchers found similar, but less-strong conclusions about whooping cough.)Undignified deathsAn 86-year-old woman died in February in New Cumberland, Pa., when she tripped and got her medical alert necklace caught on her walker, strangling herself. (2) A 25-year-old off-duty New York City police officer was killed on a highway near Elizabeth, N.J., in March. According to the police report, the officer had rearended another car and had gotten out to discuss the matter, then suddenly pulled his service revolver and threatened the driver using road rage-type language. As the officer backed up while pointing the gun, a passing driver accidentally, fatally struck him.IroniesErvin Brinker, 68, pleaded guilty to Medicaid fraud as CEO of the Summit Pointe health care provider in Michigan and was sentenced in January to 32 months in prison. He had embezzled $510,000 in mental health payments and apparently spent it all on a Florida fortuneteller. (2) Two of the three candidates for the Republican nomination for county property appraiser in Erwin, Tenn., in November died before the election, leaving Rocky McInturff the only survivor. However, he is ineligible for the nomination because he lost badly on election day to one of the two dead candidates. NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERDDistributed by Universal Press Syndicate

In the last fiscal year (ending July 1) the food bank was privileged to have the services of 6,500 volunteers. Together they contributed a total of 53,160 hours. That equates to more than $1.2 million in in-kind service. Why are the services of so many so necessary? There is a great need out here, Ms. Yuster, who lives and volunteers in Fort Myers, said. Harry Chapin Food Bank does a wonderful job of filling a void. The food bank solicits, collects and distributes quality food to families in need through a network of more than 150 nonprofit agencies in Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties. Last year it distributed 18.4 million pounds of food, equal to more than 15 million meals. The organizations that receive the food include food pantries, soup kitchens, childrens food programs, senior programs, residential programs, homeless shelters and AIDS projects. The food bank also distributes fresh food direct to families via its mobile pantries. Children and seniors make up 50 percent of the people the food bank serves. Other groups include the unemployed and underemployed, single-parent and low-income families, the disabled, the homeless and abused women and children. Food bank volunteers are from all walks of life: teachers, students, nurses, business and financial consultants, computer experts, business owners, homemakers and more. They include William Butler, 89, a Naples snowbird who decided to try volunteering at the Naples warehouse of the food bank this season. I get a psychic reward, Mr. Butler said. Different people are satisfied by making holes-in-one, going to the symphony and listening to good music and I do, too but I also get satisfaction out of helping others. He recommends that others give it a try. There ought to be lots of folks with time and energy on their hands and more skills than I have to participate, he said. It doesnt take a Phi Beta Kappa. Linda Mitchell, 77, of Fort Myers, has donated more than 6,000 hours. I just became aware of the hunger issue, she said. I knew I had to do something. I said, Im here. I have two hands. Put me to work. We believe we were brought up in the land of plenty. Its not, she added. There are many different things to do here. You can put stamps on envelopes, fold T-shirts, sort groceries, put cans on shelves. There are lots of jobs that can be done by anybody whos willing. Ms. Yuster said she has learned to never take things for granted. Take on a new challenge. Try something new. Playing Mah-jongg and golf are great, but you need to pepper it with helping somebody else. You get back more than you give. Mary Wozniak is marketing and communications manager at the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida.VOLUNTEERSFrom page 1 For information about volunteering at the Harry Chapin Food Bank, call 334-7007 or visit The Naples warehouse is at 2221 Corporation Blvd. There are opportunities for volunteers to work shifts from 8-11 a.m. and noon to 3 p.m. Mondays and Fridays and from 9 a.m. to noon on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month. Weekday volunteers must be at least 16 years of age; Saturday helpers must be at least 14, and ages 14-15 must be accompanied by an adult.. MITCHELL Louis Yale, Naples: You really get to know behind the scenes how everything works. You get a good feeling that youre lending a hand and making a difference. Ron Jacoby, Fort Myers: Its good exercise, he said. Hopefully its doing some good for some people who are less fortunate. Steve Zeder, Bonita Springs: We know what it can be like to be short of food. Its a good feeling to be able to give back. Sue Bomberger, North Fort Myers: Its very simple. Everyone deserves to eat.

David Lawrence Center announces sale of award-winning preschool SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe David Lawrence Center has announced the sale of its award-winning Childs Path preschool to Collier Child Care Resources. The transaction is expected to close in the next 30-60 days. DLC established Childs Path off Santa Barbara Boulevard in the 1980s as a means to provide DLC employees with discounted, affordable, high-quality childcare services. It was later opened to the public and has grown to become a full-service preschool and Volunteer Pre-K program. We are very pleased that CCCR will build upon the legacy that Childs Path has demonstrated for more than 30 years, Scott Burgess, CEO of DLC said. We believe the community will greatly benefit from the synergies created by merging these two programs. DLCs plan, he added, is to reinvest the proceeds from the sale into expanding its mental health and substance abuse services. CCCR is a private, not-for-profit agency whose sole purpose is to provide childhood care, education and resources to children, families and early learning professionals in Collier County. It owns and operates the award-winning NCEF Early Childhood Development Center on the Naples campus of Florida SouthWestern State College as well as A Step Up Child Development Centers at Golden Gate and Immokalee high schools. Demand for childcare at our NCEF Early Childhood Development Center has resulted in a staggering wait-list. We are excited to bring Childs Path preschool into the umbrella of that programming and increase our ability to provide access to these services, said Niccole Howard, CCCR executive director. She added CCCR plans to maintain the Childs Path brand and will retain all staff. CCCR serves approximately 275 children annually through its three child development centers. At the NCEF Early Childhood Development Center, 75 percent of the children who attend are from low-income, working families and receive partial financial assistance through CCCR; 60 percent live at or below the Federal Poverty Line. A Step Up Child Development Centers focus on children of teen mothers by offering free childcare and parenting classes while they continue their high school education. CCCR also offers training workshops and conferences for early learning professionals.

A20 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELHyundai Veloster the outstanding, oddball virtues of being differentDaring to be different has a thin margin of error. Its the line that separates a tech entrepreneur from your weird uncle Randy. But both will find appeal and value in the asymmetrical Hyundai Veloster.The head-on appearance is sporty with swept headlights and a low grille. The rear looks like a versatile hatchback. But each side tells a different story. The driver enters through a sleek single-door coupe body, and theres the extra practicality of front and rear doors for the passenger side. It is a polarizing style with function being the true deciding factor. This kind of utility is unique on the market today, but it has been done before on everything from post-war Chevrolet Suburbans to the AMC Pacer.Hyundai would like this to appeal to young, hip urbanites who are seeking a cool coupe for themselves but also wanting to carry their friends with ease. The special Rally Edition seen here particularly panders to that crowd with youthful exterior features like black 15-spoke alloy wheels, carbon fiber body kit, and a very cool exterior matte blue paint scheme. Whats amazing is that even this car sticks to Hyundai principles of providing value for money, and the special 1,200-car limited edition comes loaded at $24,785 (a base Veloster starts under $19K.)While Hyundai is aiming for the cool kids, we also know it appeals to the same crowd that buys a minivan. After all, with the rear door on the curb side only, the Veloster offers the convenience of keeping youngsters safe. So, it is not hard to see it as that perfect second vehicle that occasionally makes soccer runs, and the one mom and dad use for date night. Regardless if it is family or friends, the Veloster will seat four people total with the rear reserved for children or very understanding buddies. But this shouldnt be a surprise because it is compact car thats out to win people over with utility, not space. The real interior appeal once again lies in value. All the favorite features come standard like power windows, power locks, and air conditioning. Every trim level comes standard with a touchscreen radio. This isnt a high tech sat nav unit (thats an option,) but it provides a terrific stereo control, easy Bluetooth interface, and a nice display for the backup camera. An upgraded model like the Rally Edition also gets cool blue interior accents that match the exterior color. The Veloster has the potential to satisfy both the youthful horde and the second car crowd with its drivetrain options. The base model has an economical 1.6-liter motor that has a dual-clutch transmission (DCT) option. It can be shifted quickly via steering wheel paddles when so desired, but operates like a normal automatic the rest of the time. This makes for an easy and inexpensive car for those who need a minivan companion. Theres an optional turbocharger that boosts the power 52 percent to 201 hp total. That car is also available with the DCT automatic transmission, but the Rally Edition lives up to its name by only sporting the six-speed manual. The limited edition also comes with a sports suspension and lower profile tires. Packaging like this is usually a recipe for a harsh ride only a driver could love, but no one is offering all-out racer components for $25K. This works in the cars favor. It feels tight on the road, but the bumps arent jarring. The motor revs nicely and forgives easily if the driver doesnt want to shift the Rally Edition like, well, a rally car. In the end, the Hyundai Veloster is aimed at one crowd, but also holds appeal for plenty of other less-intended people. Besides, who says the young architect that needs the occasional rear door to carefully transport models is cooler than the grandmother who picks up the grandkids at the airport? So youth image be dammed, because utility has mass appeal. Some people can even live with a design thats as quirky as Uncle Randy.

After growing the family company for more than four decades, Mr. Bolch retired as CEO in December 2012. He retains the position of chairman of the board, along with his wife. Four of their children are board members who also hold leadership positions in the family enterprise. Lipman Family Farms is an Immokalee-based company. We are excited to see our investment directly benefit the students of Immokalee, Jaime Weisinger, a Lipman family member and director of community and government relations for the company, said. Giving the Boys and Girls Club a permanent home right here in our town is crucial to local families. We are proud to help build the new facility.

Cosmetic treatments for the hands are nothing new. At age 74, the novelist and political theorist Rose Wilder Lane decided to seek rejuvenation treatments for her face, arms and hands. The latter was most important to her, she wrote in a letter to a Miami doctor. After all, as a writer (and co-author of her mother Laura Ingalls Wilders classic Little House on the Prairie series), Lane often paid more attention to her hands than her face: I see my hands I can hardly avoid seeing them most of the time prancing over the typewriter keys and they make me damn annoyed. Who doesnt spend a lot of time in front of a keyboard these days? No matter how often you moisturize or whether youre using humectants, emollients or occlusive agents, chances are youve glanced down and noticed the veins, tendons and bone structure that didnt seem Drug store lotions and creams rarely penetrate past the top layers of skin. Even medical-grade moisturizers and treatments (like dermabrasion) can only do so much though theyve improved greatly in the six decades since Lane expressed her frustration. Hand rejuvenation in 1960 was limited to a chemical acid peel procedure that most professionals at the time warned against. Weve come a long way since today women have a range of options for preserving Azul offers skin resurfacing and your hands looking show-ready for the most important audience yourself. Radiesse is an FDA-approved injectable gel containing calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres (whew!) essentially synthetic for use on moderate-to-deep wrinkles, such as those between the nose and mouth, and is also popular for correcting the loss of fat tissue (called lipoatrophy) on the backs of the hands. As you lose tissue volume over time, the skin does not shrink accordingly, causing the shriveled appearance of age. The microspheres suspended in Radiesses waterbased gel restores the plumpedup, smooth appearance of your hands, so that you never have to worry that theyre making you look older than you really are. In some cases, patients receiving Radiesse treatment may experience bruising, swelling and unevenness that usually lasts a day or two; ice or a cold pack will easily relieve these reactions. After that, you can expect to enjoy more youthful-looking hands for as long as a full year before returning for your next treatment. Protect your new-and-improved hands with an SPF lotion to ward off damage from UV rays, and surgeon for touch-ups as needed.

Emilio Feijoo of Naples, who graduated from FGCU in December 2015 with bachelors degrees in philosophy and English, was selected for a Fulbright Study/Research Grant to pursue graduate studies in comparative literature at the University of Essex in Colchester, England. Lori Boegershausen of Palm Harbor, an Honors Program senior who will graduate in May with a bachelors degree in history, was offered a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant Grant to teach in Germany for a year. Both were the first in their families to earn college degrees and completed their undergraduate programs with the help of FGCU Foundation scholarships. In addition to the students awards, Associate Professor Mark Simpson in the College of Education has joined the ranks of FGCU faculty to receive Fulbright Scholar grants. He will work with educators in Rwanda to enhance their teaching skills and success. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program awards about 1,900 grants a year and operates in 140 countries. Fulbright is the U.S. governments flagship educational exchange program funding opportunities for international research, study and teaching. Part of its mission also is to promote mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. In the research/study category in which Mr. Feijoo submitted his proposal, only 36 of 1,031 applicants for programs in England were offered grants last year. Mr. Feijoo and Ms. Boegershausen were the only FGCU students to apply this year.

Having Cataract Surgery was a breeze. My vision is clear again. I dont have to ask my buddies to watch my tee shots.Rich Lamb Local Golf Pro, Cataract PatientStudy echoes benefit of statins for those at risk of heart attacks and strokes AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATIONA few years after new guidelines recommended that several million more Americans take a cholesterol-lowering drug to reduce their risk of having a heart attack or stroke, an extensive international investigation has come to a similar conclusion. The study known as HOPE-3 sought to find the best way to prevent cardiovascular disease in people who were considered at an intermediate risk. Researchers pursued this from four angles: giving medicines to lower blood pressure; giving a cholesterol-lowering drug known as a statin; giving a combination of all those medicines and doing nothing. The biggest benefits came from the statin. This echoes the 2013 guidelines for doctors published by the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology, which are considered the standard for treatment in the U.S. The investigation is likely to give doctors more reason to prescribe statins for patients who fall within the new risk category. When the guidelines were originally published in November 2013, controversy followed. Much of the backlash was over lowering the bar for recommending who should be prescribed a statin, which in turn drastically increased the number of people encouraged to take the pill. Everybody is beginning to see that what was considered very disruptive when we published it happens to be right, said Sidney Smith, M.D., one of the 20 experts who wrote the 2013 guidelines. Donald Lloyd-Jones, M.D., was among a panel that discussed the findings of HOPE-3 on April 2 during the ACCs annual Scientific Session & Expo. He also was among the 2013 guidelines authors. Speaking before an audience of several thousand convention-goers, Dr. Lloyd-Jones referenced the AHA-ACC guidelines and said, I think we got it right. HOPE-3 principal investigator Salim Yusuf, M.D., agreed. This should reassure anyone who still had questions, said Dr. Smith, a professor of medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill who served as senior advisor to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute for the development of the cholesterol and other CVD prevention guidelines. Just as the cholesterol guidelines were reviewed and then updated 2 years ago, now experts are in the midst of updating guidelines for the management of blood pressure. The HOPE-3 findings provide more data for the writing group to consider. Eva Lonn, the researcher who oversaw the blood pressure component of the study, broke down her findings into three groups. For the one-third of people who went into the study with the highest systolic blood pressure (the top number in a reading), there were clear benefits to taking the blood-pressurelowering medication. We did not see benefits in the middle third, said Dr. Lonn. And there was a suggestion of possible harm for individuals who did not have very high blood pressure to begin with. Dr. Lonn, Dr. Yusuf and other researchers from McMaster University in Canada conducted the study, formally called the Heart Outcomes P revention Evaluation-3. It cost between $36 million and $38 million, with funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and AstraZeneca, maker of the popular statin Crestor. For more than 5 years, researchers followed 12,705 people who had never had a heart attack or stroke. Participants were men 55 or older and women 60 or older who had one more risk factor for cardiovascular disease, such as a family history of heart attack or stroke, elevated waist-to-hip ratio or recent tobacco use. Everyone who received medicine got the same dosage, and that amount never changed over the course of the study. They also rarely followed up with doctors. These aspects were part of the studys aim for simplicity. The study group was ethnically diverse: 29 percent Chinese; 27 percent Hispanic; 20 percent white; 20 percent other Asian; 2 percent black; and 2 percent other. They were geographically diverse, too, coming from 21 countries. HEALTHY LIVING 1,100 volunteers define the word communityThis week it is my great pleasure to pay tribute to one of Southwest Floridas finest citizens and her fellow stalwarts. Her name is Molly Clark, and she is the NCH volunteer with the most hours of service: 24,000 to be exact. Without a doubt, one reason our region and our health-care system are so special is because of the 1,100 men and women to give of their time and talent as volunteers at our campuses in North Naples and downtown. They served more than 150,000 hours in 2015 and assisted in so many ways, from delivering supplies and mail to directing patients and visitors, comforting them, chauffeuring them to and from their cars and even helping with reaccreditation in our Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. They also helped ensure the success of the open house events for our new Robert, Mariann and Megan Pediatric Emergency Room and the NCH Northeast Emergency Room. And they issued more than $52,000 in grants for medical equipment to enhance patient care and more than $8,000 for the Marco Island urgent care and outpatient rehabilitation center. All of us at NCH and in the community are most grateful for their gifts. There is a strong relationship between volunteering and health. Research indicates that those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability and lower rates of depression later in life than those who dont volunteer. Moreover, older volunteers are the most likely to receive greater benefits from volunteering because it provides them with physical and social activity and a sense of purpose at a time when their social roles are changing. Every day in every way, NCH volunteers embody the very best meaning of the word community.

Theyre heartworms (Dirofilaria immitis), and they are deadly to dogs and cats. The internal parasites make themselves at home in the heart and lungs, causing heart failure and lung disease and potentially migrating to the brain, eye and spinal cord. Here are seven things you might not know about heartworm disease:1.) Heartworms are transmitted by more than 70 species of mosquitoes. Some of these mosquitoes dont need standing bodies of water to reproduce. They thrive in small areas, such as downspou ts, gutters and flowerpots and adapt well to cold weather. 2.) The incidence of heartworm disease is rising. Between 2013 and 2015, the Companion Animal Parasite Council saw a 166 percent increase in reported positive heartworm cases. Thats because nationwide, only about 35 percent of dogs are on preventive medication, says C. Thomas Nelson, DVM, who practices in Anniston, Ala., and is a spokesperson for the American Heartworm Society. On the West Coast, its only 16 to 18 percent. In the Southeast, where heartworms are especially prevalent, its about 26 percent. 3.) Heartworm disease has been found in pets in all 50 states. Owners carry their dogs with them a lot, says parasitologist John W. McCall, Ph.D., professor emeritus in the department of infectious diseases at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. They go from the north to the south, and they just dont really think that theyre going into an area where theres mosquitoes. Many owners dont even know heartworm is transmitted by mosquitoes. 4.) Cats can get heartworm disease. They are not as susceptible as dogs, but the worms can cause more serious problems in cats. Larvae in the lungs lead to whats called heartworm-associated respiratory disease, which has signs similar to feline asthma. Its worse if worms manage to develop to the adult stage.The clinical signs associated with the presence of a couple of adult worms in the cats pulmonary artery are usually very severe, ranging from acute respiratory distress to sudden death as a result of severe inflammation and pulmonary embolism, says Romain Pariaut, DVM, an internal medicine specialist and associate professor of cardiology at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in Ithaca, N.Y. 5.) Preventive medication is recommended year-round for dogs and cats in all areas. One reason is because mosquitoes are more widespread. Another is that longer bouts of warm weather and shorter bouts of cold weather mean mosquitoes are seen year-round in most areas. 6.) Heartworms are becoming resistant to preventive products. Bacteria, viruses and parasites such as heartworms eventually become resistant to drugs used against them, Dr. McCall says. The current drugs have been used for almost 30 years. We dont really know how much of a problem it is, he says, but the longer we use the products, the more likely it is to occur. 7.) Experts recommend combining preventive with a dog-safe mosquito repellent. Even though preventive medication is highly effective, its not failproof, especially in areas where heartworms have become resistant. Based on a study Dr. McCall did using Vectra 3D, which repels and kills mosquitoes, combining heartworm preventive with the topical parasiticide was 100 percent effective in blocking transmission of microfilariae (immature heartworms) from dogs to mosquitoes a necessary part of the heartworm lifecycle and more than 95 percent effective in repelling and killing mosquitoes for 28 days after treatment. If the dog is treated, the mosquito cant bite the dog and it cant transmit the infective larvae to the dog, Dr. McCall says. It will pretty much keep the dog protected, even when theres a high degree of resistance. The product is not safe for use on cats, but cats who live with dogs who are protected share the benefit. Pets of the Week>> Arnie is a handsome, 1-year-old black mouth cur mix who weighs 44 pounds. Hes friendly and calm but likes to play and go for long walks.

For more information, call 252-7387 or visit colliergov. net/pets. COURTESY PHOTODue to heartworm resistance, even pets on year-round preventive have been diagnosed with the disease, but using preventive in tandem with mosquito repellent reduces that risk.

And tanktop season, and shorts season, and cute little sundress season. Its the tropics, and if you want to walk around confidently with arms and legs bared, you have to be in shape. This is why I wear cardigans and maxi skirts in August and make sure Im constantly in the comfort of an airconditioned environment. Im tired of working out and dieting. Ive been doing it exhaustively since I was 15 and Im over it. Unfortunately though, my husband has newly rediscovered fitness and calorie-counting, and this means that I can no longer lay on the couch, glass of wine in hand and jumbo bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos on my lap, watching The Biggest Loser and thinking, Well, at least Im not as overweight as they are, right? When your other half boards the fitness boat headed to No-Carbville, you really need to step up as well, otherwise theres bound to be resentment when he tells you he lost ANOTHER 10 pounds this week. Heres the part thats so very unfair: When men decide to lose weight, it seems to just drop off their bodies like magic. Todd and I are eating the same healthy veggie and protein dinners and going on the same bike rides, yet hes lost weight in the double digits over the course of three weeks and Ive gained 2.5 pounds. So that means I have to REALLY step it up. I have to work out/ diet twice as hard just to keep up with him. Female metabolism after a certain age moves as slow as the line at the DMV. To add to the competitive nature of trying to recapture our 30-year-old bodies, we have FitBits. A FitBit is basically a step counter that you wear on your wrist like a watch. The goal is supposed to be 10,000 steps a day, as recommended by the American Heart Association just to stay healthy. If you want to burn more calories and actually lose weight, youll want to add another 3,0005,000 steps to that goal. Thats a LOT of steps. Of course FitBit has an app, which Todd and I both have on our phones, which not only allows us to see each others stepping progress, but also the progress of the folks were FitBit friends with. Theres a leader board, and the idea is to be as close to the top as possible. My friend Lara is always at the top; she works from home and has a desk thats a TREADMILL (seriously). Our friend Art is often close to the top, but thats because hes retired with a good deal of time to walk, wakes up at 4 a.m. every morning and is very competitive. As I write this, Todd has 77,759 steps in this week and I only have 74,727, which means I need to catch up fast (it also means Todd got out of bed before dawn to walk this morning, while I slept in). Its become so competitive between us that Ive been known to pace around the living room while watching late-night TV just to get my steps in before midnight. Although I recently made an amazing discovery as I was chopping up lettuce for dinner (because thats what we eat now lettuce). As I chopped, my FitBit was counting out steps. How fantastic! So if you see me somewhere at happy hour doing karate-chop motions with my left hand, youll know my husband is ahead of me in steps. Chop, chop! Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week

The goal of the summit is to bring together businesses, activists and policy-makers to talk about long-term strategies for preserving a healthy quality of life, maintaining the environment all the while creating a culture thats favorable to business. The theme for this years summit is Healthy People, Healthy Place and Healthy Profit. Sustainability puts people at the top, says event organizer Matt Vissagio, who envisions the summit as a starting point for bold ideas. What Im trying to do is get people to care about this stuff. I dont want to set the priorities. I want people to come out and engage in dialogue. The summit will feature breakout panels and discussions featuring Babcock Ranch, Publix and Healthy Lee. Presenters include Robbie Roepstorff and Dr. Bill Hammond, along with regional community leaders Jon Thaxton and Ed Chiles, the son of the late governor Lawton Chiles. Florida Weeklys Pason Gaddis, John Hillman of Kitson & Partners and Bonita Springs sustainability coordinator Jennifer Duffala Hagen will also be among the presenters. Jon Iglehart, district director for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, will present the DEP Recycling Recognition Award. The awards program was developed to encourage organizations and residents to increase recycling by 75 percent by 2020. Sustainability means maintaining and enhancing our quality of life, says Carl Schwing, city manager for Bonita Springs. The city was recently granted a gold certification by the Florida Green Building Coalition for meeting a long list of sustainability goals. Sustainability includes a lot of things like protecting and enhancing our environment, said Mr. Schwing. You can take a look at our waters, for instance, and see the fight were having with the feds over Lake Okeechobee releases and how it negatively impacts us. Water quality along the Caloosahatchee River has deteriorated recently due to federally mandated water releases from Lake Okeechobee. Polluted water from the lake alters the rivers salinity, killing seagrass; a source of food for many fish. The Lake Okeechobee releases also bring with them nutrient pollution caused by things like fertilizer and animal manure. Those nutrients cause harmful algae blooms which in turn can impact fishing and tourism, and the myriad other industries tied to them. Local leaders have banded together to fix the problem. While the fight against Lake O releases continues, it has brought together a wide range of environmentalists, activists and leaders to talk about protecting the environment and in turn, protecting business. The Lake O fight is also helping business leaders get talking about the regions sustainability efforts. Regionally, there is still much work to do in coming up with wide-ranging plans to protect the environment. The group Sustainable Florida recently rated Lee and Collier countys sustainability efforts as beginning while Char lottes efforts are somewhat better at emerging. Sustainability efforts are characterized as beginning when there are informal sustainability programs and initiatives without an overarching master plan. Nevertheless, some recent achievements are notable. The city of Cape Coral saved hundreds of thousands of dollars by implementing simple energy-saving policies. Air conditioning temperatures at public buildings were set higher when no one was around. More of a focus was placed on regularly cleaning and maintaining AC filters and condensers. Light bulbs that werent necessary were removed. The changes saved 4,600 megawatt hours of electricity. Sanibel Island city leaders have led the way in restricting the use of fertilizers and converting most of the islands homes from septic tanks to a waste-water collection and treatment system. There are examples throughout the region of government buildings that were built to meet the strict Private business too appears to be pushing forward in adopting sustainable practices. Builders and developers like Minto Communities, Collier Enterprises and Bonita Bay use guidelines set by the Florida Green Building Coalition to ensure theyre following best building practices. The Babcock Ranch community has made international headlines, billing itself as the most environmentally sensitive town ever. Babcock will feature 19,500 homes and 6 million square feet of retail and schools powered almost entirely by solar energy. The town will promote the use of electric cars. However, the town is being designed to promote walking and biking as the primary mode of getting around. Pathways will be linked to hiking trails that tie into a 74,000-acre preserve. The entire community will take about 20 years to build out. Its long-term thinking like that that excites the electric car driving Mr. Sharek, who recently upgraded his vehicle to a Tesla and gave his 16-year-old son his Volt. Both will be among a group of electric car enthusiasts at the summit who will talk to attendees about their experiences. Their presentation is one part of a larger effort to do nothing less than radically change the way people and business approach the environment. Were no longer just trying to hand things off to the next generation the way it was left to us. We need to be cleaning (stuff) up. We need to be doing better than what our parents did, he says.

And the request always comes with an emotional preamble where it is clear the person either believes annuities are a total scam akin to investing with Bernie Madoff, or something that came from the financial gods where everyone over 50 should own one or is a total buffoon. So just what are annuities and should they be a part of your portfolio? An annuity is simply an insurance product where you pay an insurance company a premium today and the company then pays you income in the future. Generally speaking, there are two classes of annuities a fixed annuity and a variable annuity. A fixed annuity pays a guaranteed (there is a reason I put this word in quotations, I will get to that in a bit) constant income. Fixed annuities act similar to owning a bond where the investor gets regular and predictable coupon payments. Variable annuity payouts, in contrast, are dependant on the performance of an underlying index such as the stock market. The benefits of an annuity are very obvious, hence their inherent appeal. By paying a premium today, you can get a guaranteed income for the rest of your life and even your spouse s life depending on the annuity. And better yet, with a variable annuity, you can get the benefit of a bullish stock market but still get regular payout if the market sinks. Finally, with annuities that defer payouts for a number of years, you can grow your retirement payout without paying any taxes on that return until you collect that money. But if annuities are so great, why do they have such a bad reputation in some quarters? First, most annuities are sold by insurance agents who get a very healthy commission for selling them, as high as 10 percent. That means 10 cents of every premium dollar never makes it into your investment. In addition, the annual fees that insurance companies charge to manage your annuities can be quite high, again taking away from your return. And if you ever want to get out of an annuity, the exit fees again can be very steep. Second, the guaranteed income payments of an annuity are not guaranteed by the government, they are simply backed by the company issuing the contract. Some insurance companies are stronger than others and, as we saw during the financial crisis just a few years ago, are not invincible. If the insurance company goes belly-up, your annuity could become worthless overnight. The third, and most complex, issue I have with some annuities is that in some cases you are simply not getting a favorable return on them. Let me give you an example. Insurance Company ABC is proposing a fixed annuity where it will pay you 4 percent guaranteed income on your premium for the rest of your life. Sounds like a good deal, right? Where else can you get a 4 percent guaranteed return with minimal risk? But then what if I told you that you can buy the same ABC Insurance Companys 20-year corporate bonds, which yield 6 percent? Maybe you can create your own annuity, not pay any fees, and get a better return with the same risk profile by simply buying the insurance companys bonds. So because of these downsides, would I steer all people away from annuities? Actually, no. Especially for older investors, annuities can provide a stable and mostly safe way to provide income during retirement. But there are definitely a few rules I would want to follow when deciding to invest my money into one. First, only buy annuities from financial companies with a strong financial position with lots of liquidity. You are taking credit risk to that company for a long period of time so it had better be there for the long haul. Second, I would recommend buying a direct-sale annuity where there is no insurance agent taking a huge commission off the top. Companies like Fidelity, Vanguard and Charles Schwab offer annuities without taking a large upfront commission. Third, understand the annual fees, exit fees and other costs that will be taking a bite out of your return. And finally, never buy an annuity until you both completely understand how your income will be calculated and then stop to think whether you can recreate this income in a more cost effective manner. There may be a better way to recreate that cash flow stream to ensure you can enjoy that retirement that you so richly deserve.

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY I trace my roots back to the 1924 founding of the Huff Daland Dusters crop-dusting business in Macon, Georgia. Within a few years I was transporting mail and passengers. I added stewardesses to my service in 1940. Over the years I bought or merged with Pan Am, Northeast Airlines, Northwest Airlines and more. Today I transport about 180 million people annually between 328 destinations in 57 countries on six continents. I offer more than 15,000 flights daily, and my hub is one of the worlds busiest airports. I employ almost 80,000 people and sport a fleet of more than 800 airplanes. Who am I?

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Be Careful With BiotechnologyBiotechnology can seem irresistible, featuring companies that are busy developing tomorrows blockbuster treatments for various diseases and conditions. Some will indeed reward shareholders handsomely over the long run but others wont, with some going down in flames. The possibility that a drug in development might cure a cancer is understandably thrilling, but it can take 10 years or longer and hundreds of millions of dollars to eventually clear several Food and Drug Administration hurdles. Testing on humans begins with phase 1 trials, continues with more-involved phase 2 trials, and concludes with phase 3. This entire trial process can take five years or longer. It can take another year to apply for and receive a verdict on FDA approval, and the answer can be no. Biotech stocks can be volatile. For example, cancer drug developer Exelixis lost 42 percent in 2011 and 77 percent in 2014, and surged 34 percent in 2013 and 292 percent in 2015. As of this writing, its down 30 percent. See?Despite all that, you can still invest effectively in drugs, via pharmaceutical titans such as Pfizer, Novartis, Roche and Merck. Although the idea for a new drug might start with a scientist working for a small development-stage company, its likely to end up marketed and sold by these giants, which often buy or license drug technology from small developers. They may even fund drug development at small companies in exchange for marketing rights. You might also look at big biotech companies, such as Amgen and Celgene.Another option is to invest in a mutual fund or exchange-traded fund that focuses on biotechnology stocks. That way, your money will be diversified across many companies, and if a few implode, the losses can be offset by gainers. Consider, for example, the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB). Smart investors try to stick to what they understand. If youre not a scientist, think twice before investing in any small, unproven biotech company pinning its hopes on a possible big breakthrough. Into the ToiletI bought Nokia stock a few years ago for $9.93 per share, a price at which I thought it was seriously undervalued. I knew the company had partnered with Microsoft to co-develop a new phone, and I figured there might be a chance that Microsoft would buy Nokia outright. I was new to buying stocks, and this was one of my first purchases. Microsoft did wind up buying Nokias mobile devices business, but Nokias stock price kept falling, well into penny-stock territory. I was crushed not financially, though, as I had only invested about $3,000. It hurt because I thought Id picked an obvious winner and instead the stock went into the toilet. I recently sold my shares for about a 30 percent loss. I realized I was just waiting and waiting for it to do something either tank completely or make me proud of my early vision, to redeem myself, in a way. S.W., West New York, New JerseyThe Fool Responds: Nokia was once a mobile phone leader, but leaders dont always stay on top. Its reasonable to be hopeful about a partnership with a deep-pocketed entity such as Microsoft, but even giant companies make mistakes. Microsofts purchase of Nokias phone business for more than $7 billion is seen by many as one of its biggest blunders. For best results, favor companies that are succeeding over ones that are struggling. Infrastructure Pays DividendsFor relatively low-risk investments, consider stable, cash-producing enterprises that own businesses and assets with major barriers to entry such as Brookfield Infrastructure Partners (NYSE: BIP). It builds, buys and operates assets that are critical to commerce, industry, and the economies of the areas it operates in assets that are difficult to replace or disrupt and that face little to no competition. For example, Brookfields assets are geographically and economically diverse, spanning several continents and focused on power transmission systems, railroads, ports, energy transportation and storage, telecommunications and more. These kinds of assets tend to produce very dependable cash flows and are often regulated, which can further limit competitive entry.Brookfields stock has had a bit of a bumpy ride lately. Since its assets are all over the world and cash flows are usually generated in local currencies, it has been hurt by the currently strong U.S. dollar. Still, its earnings have been growing. When exchange rates move in the opposite direction, they can boost Brookfields results.Another big Brookfield draw is its dividend, which recently yielded 5.5 percent. Its a master limited partnership, which means it has special tax considerations and isnt ideal for tax-advantaged accounts such as IRAs and 401(k)s. It can serve you well in regular investment accounts, though. (The Motley Fool has recommended Brookfield Infrastructure Partners.) I trace my roots back to 1901; my first pr oduct w as saccharine. Decades later, I sported major agricultural, pharmaceutical, nutrition and chemical businesses. After mergers and reorganization, I am now an agricultural giant and the worlds largest seed company, with products that help farmers increase crop yields. Many dont like my genetically modified seed business or my pesticides and herbicides. Based in St. Louis, I rake in more than $14 billion annually, employ more than 21,000 people worldwide, and have 404 facilities in 66 countries. My CEO is Hugh Grant but no, not that one. Who am I? (Answer: Monsanto) Intro to Mutual FundsQPlease explain how mutual funds work. P.M., Abilene, TexasAMutual funds hold the pooled money of many investors thats managed professionally. Theyre great for the majority of us who dont have the time or skills to carefully choose investments. Instead, we can let professionals do the research and make the decisions, for a fee. There are many kinds of mutual funds. Some invest just in stocks, others in bonds, and some in a variety of asset types. They can focus on small, medium-size or large companies. Some seek income through dividendor interest-paying securities; others aggressively seek fast-growing stocks. Some specialize in one industry (such as financial services or health care) and others in a region (such as Asia or Latin America). Unfortunately, many professionally managed mutual funds dont do so well for their investors, due to hefty fees or management issues, such as poor investment choices or a counterproductive focus on shortterm results. To combat this, many people sensibly opt for broad-market index funds, which tend to have very low fees and invest only in the stocks in major indexes, such as the S&P 500. Over the long run, these have outperformed most managed, nonindex funds.

Report examines sales for vacation and investment homes NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSVacation home sales cooled off in 2015 but remained at the second highest amount in nearly a decade, while investment purchases increased for the first time in five years, according to an annual survey of residential homebuyers released April 8 by the National Association of Realtors. Mirroring the strong price growth seen throughout the U.S., the median sales price of both vacation and investment homes surged in 2015. NARs 2016 Investment and Vacation Home Buyers Survey, covering existingand new-home transactions in 2015, found that vacation-home sales last year declined to an estimated 920,000, down 18.5 percent from their most recent peak of 1.13 million in 2014.Investment-home sales in 2015 jumped 7 percent to an estimated 1.09 million from 1.02 million in 2014. Owner-occupied purchases jumped 15.9 percent to 3.74 million last year from 3.23 million in 2014, the highest level since 2007 (3.93 million). Sales estimates are based on a national online survey including responses from more than 2,000 U.S. adults who purchased a residential property in 2015; institutional investment activity is excluded.Baby boomers at or near retirement continue to propel the demand for second homes, although headwinds softened the overall volume of vacation sales last year, says Lawrence Yun, chief economist at NAR. The expanding pool of buyers amidst a dwindling number of bargain-priced properties led to tighter supply and fewer sales and caused the price of vacation homes to REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY B9 WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 20161931 Hunter Creek Drive, Punta GordaThis two-story Key West-style home is on 254 feet of frontage on the Peace River with direct access to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico.

Cities with the highest number of closed luxury home sales $1 million: Naples is No. 9 with 1,135 sales; $5 million: Naples is No. 5 with 87 sales (up from the No. 6 spot in 2015); and $10 million: Naples is No. 8 with 16 sales (a rise from the No. 9 spot last year).

Among the features growing in demand: The application of technology to create residences that are fully automated and networked. Sky garages that allow residents to drive into an elevator for a quick ride up to their own garage, providing added privacy and convenience. Family-friendly environments are in high demand from wealthy buyers. New towers are featuring bowling alleys, movie theaters, ice-skating rinks, pools and athletic courts. Dog runs and pet-oriented features also are becoming more common.

rise, he adds. And furthermore, the turbulence that hit the financial markets the second half of the year likely seized some would-be buyers available cash. The median sales price of both vacation and investment homes soared in 2015. The median vacation home price was $192,000, up 28 percent from $150,000 in 2014. The median investment-home sales price was $143,500, up 15.3 percent from $124,500 a year ago. According to Mr. Yun, many of the metro areas with the strongest price appreciation in 2015 were in the South the most popular destination for vacation buyers and particularly in several Florida markets. While increased buyer demand contributed to the run-up in prices, it also likely squeezed less affluent households looking to purchase vacation properties. Vacation-home sales accounted for 16 percent of all transactions in 2015, down from 2014 (21 percent), but still the second highest share since the survey was first conducted in 2003. The portion of investment sales remained unchanged from a year ago at 19 percent. Despite a smaller share of distressed properties coming onto the market, investment purchases reversed course in 2015 after declining for four straight years, Mr. Yun says. Steadily increasing home prices and strong rental demand appear to be giving more individual investors assurance that purchasing real estate will diversify their portfolios and generate additional income if they decide to rent out the home. This years survey found that among investors, 42 percent did or tried to rent their property in 2015 and plan to rent their property in 2016. Twenty-four percent of vacation buyers did or tried to rent their property in 2015 and plan to rent their property this year. Vacation buyers are more likely to use a property manager or social media to rent their property, while investors are more likely to use a traditional real estate agency. The share of vacation buyers who paid in cash jumped to 38 percent from 30 percent in 2014, while cash purchases by investors decreased to 39 percent from 41 percent a year ago. Of buyers who financed their purchase with a mortgage, more than half (52 percent) of vacation buyers and 44 percent of investors financed less than 70 percent of the purchase price.The overall trend of fewer distressed properties (short sale or foreclosure) on the market resulted in vacation buyers and investors purchasing fewer of them in 2015. Thirty-six percent of vacation buyers (45 percent in 2014) and 39 percent of investors (44 percent in 2014) purchased a distressed property a year ago.Who buys vacation homes?Vacation-home buyers in 2015 had a higher median household income ($103,700) than those in 2014 ($94,380) and purchased a property that was a median distance of 200 miles away from their primary residence (unchanged from a year ago). Buyers plan to own their property for a median of seven years, an increase from six years in 2014. With more vacation buyers purchasing single-family homes (58 percent) compared to a year ago (54 percent), the share of those buying a condo (25 percent) or a townhouse or row house (13 percent) decreased in this years survey. Forty percent of vacation buyers purchased in a beach area, 19 percent purchased in the mountains or at a lakefront, and 16 percent purchased a vacation home in the country. Nearly half of all vacation homes bought last year were in the South (47 percent, versus 41 percent in 2014), 25 percent were in the West (unchanged from a year ago), 15 percent in the Northeast (unchanged from a year ago) and 13 percent in the Midwest (14 percent in 2014). More than one-third of vacation buyers plan to use their property for vacations or as a family retreat (37 percent), 16 percent bought for future retirement plans and only 7 percent purchased to generate income through renting the property, a decrease from 11 percent in 2014.Who buys for investment?The typical investment-home buyer in 2015 had a median household income of $95,800 ($87,680 in 2014) and bought a detached single-family home (62 percent) that was a median distance of 22 miles from their primary residence (24 miles in 2014). Investment buyers last year purchased property for a variety of reasons, with an increasing share from 2014 citing rental income as the primary reason (42 percent; 37 percent in 2014), followed by low prices and the buyer found a good deal (16 percent), and for potential price appreciation (14 percent). Likely reflecting growing demand toward renting in the city, investment purchases in urban areas increased to 29 percent (26 percent in 2014). Purchased properties from investment buyers were more likely to be in the South (37 percent) and in a suburban area (41 percent). Perhaps encouraged by rising housing demand and home prices, more than 80 percent of both vacation buyers and investment buyers believe that now is a good time to purchase real estate.

Such an opportunity, however, presents itself in the multi-media concert Patchouli & Terra Guitarra: The Landscape of Guitar, which has its world premiere at the Center for the Performing Arts Bonita Springs on Friday, April 22. It is a unique occasion to experience what it is like to go into the mind of the musicians, to see the music playing on the canvas and to feel the guitar vibrations in the lush texture of the paint, singer-songwriter Julie Patchouli says. In what is the culmination of five years of intertwined musical and artistic work, Ms. Patchouli and master guitarist Bruce Hecksel will perform their original music while animated versions of Mr. Hecksels impressionistic paintings are projected behind the musical duo as well as to both sides of the audience. The effect will be a wraparound, fully immersive experience for everyone in the centers Moe Auditorium, analogous to the movie What Dreams May Come. Susan Bridges, president of the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs, has known the singer-songwriters for several years and is thrilled to be hosting the world premier. Everyone here is a great fan of their music and their creative spirit, she says. I really like their ideas, their enthusiasm and how they take their work SEE AKHTAR, C4 SEE ART, C5 Canyonbird, top, and Labryinth are two of Bruce Hecksens paintings that will be brought to life through animation in the multimedia concert Patchouli & Terra Guitarra: The Landscape of Guitar.

Schulberg. Smart Business Network. 360 pages. $24.95.In a plain, clear style, Neapolitan Phil Beuth recounts (says the subtitle) My 40-year adventure with one of Americas outstanding communications companies. The authors outlook is consistently one of thankfulness and optimism. He feels blessed by having been in the right place at the right time, and having been trusted with important responsibilities at an early age. Mr. Beuths growth as a business executive parallels the growth of this marvelous company, the name of which is less well known today than it was when it swallowed a media giant. The company was Capital Cities Communications, often referred to as CapCities. The giant it swallowed in 1985 was the American Broadcasting Company. In time, Mr. Beuth became the ultimate insider, being among those first hired by CapCities head Tom Murphy in 1955 when it was a new company, with plenty of ambition. CapCities brought on many established media professionals, and at just 23 years old, Mr. Beuth was smart enough to learn from them, just as they were smart enough to put challenging opportunities in his way. Mr. Beuths personal narrative has to do with his growing up in New York City, family matters and learning to live with a physical disability that never became an excuse. His high school years included enjoying the great sportscaster Red Barber, holding afterschool jobs and meeting Betty Yost, who would become his wife. His scholarship to Union College in Schenectady (followed by a masters degree from Syracuse) supplied one part of his education; a job at a local radio station initiated another set of learning experiences. Then came WROW-TV in Albany at the outset of the deals that launched CapCities. Mr. Beuths detailed description of Tom Murphys tutelage helps readers understand how the CapCities management style groomed beginners for success. By 1957, the young media employee was making purchases of the just-issued CapCities stock. Is was in the building called the Nunnery, WROW-TVs headquarters, that Mr. Beuth met one of the many entertainment celebrities he came to know over his long career. This was Ted Knight, known best for his portrayal of the Ted Baxter character on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Limping on Water is filled with many delightful anecdotes about celebrity performers and other prominent individuals including Lowell Thomas, Charles Gibson, Warren Buffett, Burt Reynolds, Barbara Walters and Paul McCartney. As CapCities grew, Mr. Beuths responsibilities broadened. He handled many important projects for the company, arranging meets of all sorts and being on hand to fix problems as they arose. He did spend three tours of duty as a station manager: He ran WSAZ-TV in Huntington, W. Va.; KFSNTV in Fresno, Calif.; and WKBW-TV in Buffalo, N.Y. The chapters that cover these assignments provide a detailed description of what that kind of job entails and how a station interacts with the communities it serves. As he describes these assignments and communities. Mr. Beuth pays careful attention to the stresses and strains of family life, intensified by relocations as well as by his workaholic behavior pattern. There was also the problem of Bettys severe nicotine dependency and its effects on her health. He paints the distinct personalities of his three sons, describing how each thrived in the various communities. In the early 1970s, as the Beuths settle into Fresno, now parents of a young daughter, other things are happening in the CapCities world. Its still growing by leaps and bounds, making acquisitions on a regular basis. Also at this time, CapCities enters the world of print media, a move that greatly increases corporate profits. As business continues to grow, so do Mr. Beuths responsibilities and stature. His family life, however, becomes burdened by Bettys addiction and by the prejudicial behavior that attached to their homosexual son Barry. The powerful chapter treating this tragedy is filled with keen, troubling insights. More than any other part of this book, this one reveals Phil Beuth the man, the father and the citizen. Soon after CapCities bought ABC in 1985, can-do Mr. Beuth became president of the ABCs Good Morning America. Under his rule the show became the No. 1 morning program after trailing the Today show for many years. Now a powerful ABC leader, Mr. Beuth remained so until his retirement.

According to American Theatre magazine, Disgraced is the most-produced play in the United States this 2015-16 season, with 18 productions. And, Mr. Akhtar is also this seasons most-produced playwright overall, with 21 productions. Thats more than classic playwrights such as Tennessee Williams (17 productions), August Wilson (16), Arthur Miller (15) or Eugene ONeill (10). Im confused and delighted, says Mr. Akhtar, by phone from New York City. Its always hard to believe that something you could write would be that popular with folks. But, he acknowledges, The plays engaged with matters of the moment in our lives as citizens, and I think that can often create a really good theater experience for people. Southwest Floridians are in the unique position of being able to see two of his plays in the area: Disgraced is currently at Sarasotas Asolo Historic Theater through April 24, and The Who & the What plays at the Gulfshore Playhouse in Naples from April 30 through May 15. (They can also see Ink, Silk and Gold: Islamic Art from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, at The Ringling, right next to the Asolo, through May 1.) Its one of the most exciting new plays Ive seen in years, says Asolo Rep producing artistic director Michael Donald Edwards, who directed Disgraced for the venue. He snatched up the rights to the play as soon as they were available. Its very current, and is about our national conversation around identity and religion and citizenship that is more sophisticated, engaging and more genuinely human than any of our politicians are presenting, he says. Talking about itAudiences whove seen Mr. Akhtars Disgraced at the Asolo Historic Theater are so bursting to discuss the play that they refuse to leave, so the theater now holds a post-show discussion after every performance. The audience demanded that, Mr. Edwards says. Theyre in a state. The audience is staying, they want to talk about it. Theyre really on fire with conversation. People are hungry to actually have an honest dialogue, not just throwing hateful clichs at each other. He compares the reaction to Disgraced as similar to John Patrick Shanleys Doubt, which people felt compelled to discuss after seeing. Disgraced revolves around two couples whose dinner together explodes in conflict. Amir is a corporate lawyer who was raised Muslim; hes changed his name to appear Indian. Hes deeply conflicted about his identity. His wife, Emily, is a white woman whos a painter; her work is intensely influenced by Islamic art. Their friends are Isaac, a curator from the Whitney Museum, whos Jewish, and his wife Jory, a fellow lawyer of Amirs, and African-American. Fueled by alcohol and heightened emotions, the four have a no-holds-barred discussion that disintegrates into an argument involving politics, religion, 9/11, terrorism, airport security and stereotyping. People are feeling privileged to listen to this kind of discussion in areas that are relatively taboo, says Mr. Edwards. Characters are talking openly about Islam and religion and identity in America in ways that are complicated and engaging. Because its a play, because every character is a human being, with all the complicated emotions and intellect of a human, we find every point of view irresistible and comprehendible. We are asked to walk in someone elses shoes. It deals square-on with a lot of our prejudices and our fears. It raises more questions than it answers, Mr. Edwards says, calling Disgraced the play that has the conversation that most of us are afraid to have. People may be drawn to Disgraced as a curiosity, says Mr. Akhtar. And then people are surprised they find their own experience in it. Theyre drawn by the lure of the other, and the lure of the other leads them to feel, in many cases, they have seen something that is really about themselves. He relays how, when he read Chaim Potoks novels as a teenager, he felt he was reading about his own very small Muslim, suburban Pakistani community, just outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, even though the books are about Hassidic Jews in Brooklyn. The novels gave him a weird sense of feeling that I had stumbled onto something that was very familiar to me. I couldnt account for it, he says, noting that he related to them more than other books such as The Catcher in the Rye and A Separate Peace.Creative dervishMr. Akhtar burst onto the scene in 2012 with his critically acclaimed novel, American Dervish, about a young boy growing up Muslim in surburban Milwaukee. His play, Disgraced, played at Lincoln Center in 2012, followed by The Who & the What and Invisible Hand on OffBroadway in 2014. This flurry of creativity happened, he poetically explained to the Guardian newspaper, when All I did metaphorically was to turn and look over my shoulder at what I was running away from. And at that moment there was an explosion of creativity. Writers are constantly urged to write what you know, but I never really thought anyone would care about what I knew, he says, explaining that it took him a long time to mature as an artist. When were younger, were so enamored with our own individual experience and what feels unique about our own contributions, ourselves, that (our work) is not pointed towards the universal, its pointed to me as singular, remarkable, unique. I had a shifting of consciousness where I started to understand how my particular was actually universal, and that was where all the work came from. A lot of it too, he says, has to do with perseverance. You just keep at it, he says. The more you fail, the better you get. The challenge is, when you fail, not to give up. Thats really hard. A lot of times failure makes you want to give up. Mr. Akhtar, who also writes screenplays, typically writes from 9 a.m. to 1 or 2 p.m., when he can. Hes going to London for a new production of The Invisible Hand. Im reworking the second act, he says. He also has a new play opening this summer in La Jolla, California. Called Junk, its set in the s and is about junk bonds. Its about that moment when debt became an asset: how did that happen, why, and what were the results of it, he describes. Hes also 25,000 words into writing a novel which continues all of the explorations of all the various forms of Muslim identity in the West, post 9/11, he says. The Who & the WhatA local production of his comedic drama, The Who & the What, opens at the Gulfshore Playhouse in Naples April 30. The play focuses on a traditional Pakistani Muslim living in America with two daughters, Zarina and Mahwish. Zarina, the elder, is writing a controversial novel about the Prophet, Muhammad. Her younger sister wants to get married, but cant, until her older sister marries. The plot also involves a white man, Eli, who has converted to Islam. The girls father keeps insisting that they are a conservative family, but he fails to recognize just how Americanized his daughters have become. The Who & the What questions faith and what it means to be a Muslim in todays world. Mr. Akhtar describes it as the question of tradition, what one leaves behind and what one takes along. Zarina and Mahwish are willing to take a lot of tradition with them, he says, but they want to do it in a different way (than their father.) Whereas Amir (in Disgraced) wants nothing to do with any of it. The playwright himself isnt religious, but considers himself a cultural Muslim. I dont believe the revelation as revealed to Muhammad in a particular moment in human history is the exclusive purchase of the truth, that Christ is the central defining act of history, or the historic convenient given to Moses and the people is the original contract. All of these myths are myths. They can have great wisdom in them and truth, can be great inspiration. We run into trouble when we confuse the myth with reality. Hes received flack from Muslims who feel he shouldnt be airing their dirty laundry or writing negatively about them, feeling it just fans the flame of anti-Muslim sentiment. But what they dont realize, he says, is that without conflict, there is no drama. Thered be nothing worth watching, he says. He compares it to the post-World War II era, when Jewish people would question, Whats good for the Jews? and Whats bad for the Jews? The fear and the anxiety, it makes sense, he says. But it didnt stop Philip Roth from writing. Each of the plays is a different perspective on issues of faith and identity and the immigrant experience, globalization. American Dervish, my novel, theyre all part of the same gesture. And I have three more works, which are going to be really seven works, all together, a multiplicity of points of view, with some contradicting others. Each of them is a snapshot, and theyre very different, theyre not intended to be very consistent. Their different points of view sometimes contradict each other. There is no single perception of Islam in my work. My purpose is to tell you a good story. Ayad Akhtar is never going to please everybody, says Mr. Edwards. But audiences, he adds, are moved by his work. Thats what theater does. Its not an op-ed piece in The New York Times. Many people want the play to be that: a nice, tied-up intellectual coherent statement that reinforces their point of view. But thats not what art does. Art asks questions, throws down gauntlets, demands your attention, rather than give you bromides. Were going to walk up to the most challenging issues and make everyone feel good about it. Were not timid. We counteract fear, we take fear and stare it down. We counteract fear with art, and love, and intelligence. AKHTARFrom page 1 In Ayad Akhtars Disgraced, which won the Pulitzer Prize, the characters engage in heated discussions of Islam, terrorism and religion.


NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 to a fun, new level with artwork compositions. The duo releases its lyrical folk music under the name Patchouli and its nouveau-flamenco instrumental guitar music as Terra Guitarra, although Ms. Patchouli and Mr. Hecksel comprise the personnel for both bands. When they started releasing the instrumentals under the Terra Guitarra name, Mr. Hecksel began painting art for the album covers along with composing the music. He says he became inspired to paint guitars as landscapes in an impressionistic-primitivist style reminiscent of stained-glass windows. Julie and I have always painted together, he adds. At one point she made this guitar upside down sitting on a hillside, and it looked like a person looking into the sunset. I always loved that and I thought about how she anthro-guitarized it and made this guitar seem like a being, so I came up with the idea of the guitar landscapes. With Terra Guitarra, which I took from terra firma, the land we think of as solid and concrete and never changing is in fact ever-changing and resonating and capable of inspiring melodies. The music takes considerable inspiration from nature. Ms. Patchouli writes lyrics about places such as oceans and woodlands, and Mr. Hecksel creates atmospheric sounds with his guitar that recall water drops and rain. Its a celebration of nature, and in fact nature is trying to communicate with you, he says. Its trying to sing songs to you and make you feel better, but you just have to go over there and let it happen. The whole concept of my art and of Terra Guitarra is that nature is doing this. These melodies are all gifts from nature, he says. I heard them in my head, but that doesnt mean I created them. They came from these places where I was at, so its a celebration of the gifts of nature a celebration of harmony, melody and color. The liveliness of nature reflects in Mr. Hecksels artwork, with things such as dragonflies and birds flying over guitar-shaped hills. He became inspired to attempt animating the artwork after he recognized the capabilities of the software he used to produce the duos music videos. I came to the realization I could do something more than a slideshow, he says. I could break apart the paintings into different pieces and then be able to move those pieces around to make these interesting worlds. If I could make one of the birds fly, then I would know Id gotten it. I was thinking Id just make it soar around, but I discovered how to make its wings flap, put it into 3-D and fly it around as a 3-D object. Once he discovered this world of capabilities, he says, I had 150 paintings ready to go on this journey. The journey has been a time-consuming one, however, taking the entire winter. Mr. Hecksel taught himself animation as he went, and unlike artwork created specifically for animation, he hadnt created his creatures and his landscapes as separate paintings. As it is, he has to extract the creatures from his paintings and then repaint what would have been behind in the original. If I had known I was going to be painting for animation, I could have saved myself most of that time by creating separate images from the beginning, he says. But although its a lot of work, it is also a lot of fun. Im getting to take these paintings and breathe another life into them. Usually when you paint a painting, its over thats the painting. Maybe you make a print of it, but to take it, re-enliven it and make it do things is really thrilling. The multi-media animated immersion will merge the music and art in a way that has not been possible for the duo before, melding the colors and sounds to create what Mr. Hecksel describes as a spiritually vibrational experience. It will be a euphoric experience without the hangover, he says. These were two dimensions the sound and the art and this is the third dimension where youre getting a full circle picture of what were trying to communicate. In that respect its singularly unique.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Whether you need a car, truck or van, Enterprise is the perfect choice. 1 800 rent-a-car W h Pick-up subject to geographic and other restrictions. 2015 Enterprise Rent-A-Car G00131 8/15 ARTS COMMENTARYFunny Girl provides lots of laughs at Broadway PalmIt cant be easy to play Fanny Brice in Funny Girl. Not only must an actress possess the pipes to belt out beloved chestnuts such as Dont Rain on My Parade and People, but she needs a keen comedic sensibility as well one that allows you to deliver a line with perfect inflection and timing and to perform the required physical comedy as well. And then theres the fact that Barbra Streisand is so indelibly tied to the role. When you think of Fanny Brice in Funny Girl, you think of Streisand. When you hear those iconic songs in your head, its typically Streisands voice you hear singing those lyrics. Its an uphill battle for any actress bold enough or foolish enough to accept the role. But Elizabeth McMonagle grabs hold of the role with both hands and doesnt let go. I confess to having some doubts when she first walked on stage at the Broadway Palm Theatre. She looked like a lost little girl, not someone who could belt out a song. And she doesnt possess the unconventional beauty of a Streisand or Bette Midler. But then she sang her first number, Im the Greatest Star, and I was won over. As Fanny, Ms. McMonagle possesses tons of moxie and overflows with selfconfidence, something people in show business need a never-ending supply of. In that first scene, shes 19 and at a rehearsal, trying to convince dancer Eddie Ryan (Christopher Russell) that she belongs in the show even though she cant get through any of the dance numbers without going the wrong way or doing the wrong step. She knows shes different. She knows she doesnt fit in. Im a bagel on a plate full of onion rolls, she acknowledges. But she also knows how good she is. Im the greatest, but no one knows it, she sings. And just like that, she wins over the audience. Her own self-belief makes the audience believe in her. (Which is pretty much what acting is all about, anyway.) She has that spark. As a suitor tells her later on, Youre so full of life you make everyone else look like a sleepwalker. Im the Greatest Star is not the easiest song to perform: There are plenty of asides to be spoken after singing a line, even little scenarios to act out. The timing has to be perfect. And Ms. McMonagle nails it. Not only that, but the sound is crystal clear, and her diction perfect. Kudos to Ms. McMonagle and also to director Brian Enzman and conductor Loren Strickland. Funny Girl is based on the life of comedian/singer/actress Fanny Brice and her disastrous relationship with gambler Nicky Arnstein, with lots of creative license. They meet, they fall in love, they marry. Fannys star continues to rise, as she performs with the Ziegfeld Follies and makes a name for herself, but Nicks future is as shaky as betting on the horses. Many people know the musical, either through seeing it on Broadway or watching the 1968 movie, which was also a vehicle for Streisand. (The musical was nominated for eight Tony Awards but lost out to Hello, Dolly. Streisand won the Oscar for her movie performance four years later.) The book is somewhat strange, but it does have those classic songs especially the showstopper Dont Rain on My Parade that, along with Ms. McMonagles great performance and some terrific ensemble numbers, make this show easy to watch. When you have a musical about an actress, its a great excuse to have a variety of numbers that are from the shows within the show. Funny Girl offers His Love Makes Me Beautiful, with brides in white gliding about. Costume designer John P. White goes all out with the chorusgirls-dressed-as-brides outfits. One wears a three-tiered wedding cake as a hat, while another balances a birdcage on her head. Fanny, who thinks the audience will ridicule her for singing about being beautiful when she isnt exactly one herself, takes the number and puts her own twist on it, deliberately courting laughs. She learns early on that when somethings not working for you, you have to put your own spin on it and make it yours. And then theres the Rat-Tat-TatTat number in Act II, filled with tapdancing, patriotic, white-rifle waving dancers in red, white and blue sequins, led by the very able Mr. Russell. The soldiers introduce themselves: Im Private Ryan from Maine. Im Private Smith from Kansas. But when Ms. McMonagle comes out and announces shes Private Schvartz from Rockaway, I just about fell off my seat laughing. I proceeded to laugh through the entire number. Its so outrageous, so much fun, I wished they could have done it all over again. Diane Wilde is outstanding as Fannys mother, Mrs. Brice. The backbone of the show, shes wise, and also wisecracking. You see where Fanny gets her spunk. She and Mr. Russell have a duet in Who Taught Her Everything? in which they both claim credit for having taught Fanny everything she knows. And the opening number, If a Girl Isnt Pretty, with Ms. Wilde, Megan Leigh Pattison, Megan Orlowski and ML Graham as the neighborhood women playing cards, is warm and welcoming, as well as funny. Drew Stark plays Fannys love interest, Nicky Arnstein. In his black cape and top hat hes dashing and charming, but I was looking for some darkness in his character, some edge. You can see why Fanny falls in love with this reformed gambler; hes so nice, so gallant. But theres no sense of inner struggle, of danger. Its difficult to believe hes someone who would make bad choices or shady deals. Funny Girl is not only the story of Fanny Brice. Its the story of performers everywhere who, armed with only their talent and their belief in themselves, struggle in their journey to the spotlight. Fanny Brice is not so much an ugly duckling as an odd duck, and its when she embraces her oddness, her differentness, if you will, that she becomes fully who she is: much more interesting than your average, generic chorus girl and yes, ultimately, a star.

For example, take this deal played by multi-time world champion Bob Hamman in a U.S. national championship. Hammans opening one-club bid was artificial and forcing, promising at least 17 high-card points with almost any distribution. Wests four no-trump announced a strong twosuiter in the minors. The double by North indicated at least moderate values, and Souths five-heart bid closed the auction. Without a club lead, Hamman would have had no trouble collecting 11 tricks. But Wests king-of-clubs lead cut South off from dummys king of spades. As a result, declarer was faced with the possibility of losing three diamond tricks. However, Hamman utilized his knowledge of Wests hand to bring the contract home. After taking the club ace, he led a diamond to his nine, losing to the 10. As expected, West shifted to a trump. After winning the eight with the nine, Hamman now made his second key play in the diamond suit by returning the king. West took the king with the ace, but, just as Hamman hoped, he did not have another trump to lead. Declarer ruffed the queen-of-clubs return, trumped his last diamond in dummy and so made the contract. By playing the diamonds as he did,hHamman prevented East the player far more likely to hold two or three trumps from ever gaining the lead. Had Hamman put up the king of diamonds at trick two, or led the eight of diamonds instead of the king at trick four, East would have won the second diamond with the jack and returned a trump to sink the contract.

FILM CAPSULESCity Of Gold (Jonathan Gold, Roy Choi, David Chang) The story is unfocused in this documentary about Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold and his influence on Los Angeles. Not only that, but Mr. Golds personality isnt interesting enough to warrant following him for 90 minutes. Rated R.My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, Lainie Kazan) Toula (Ms. Vardalos) and Ian (Mr. Corbett) have trouble connecting while her parents (Ms. Kazan and Michael Constantine) realize their wedding was never official. Its a delight to see this crazy family back on the big screen, and just as funny as it was when the original was a box office hit in 2002. Rated PG-13.Dough (Jonathan Pryce, Jerome Holder, Ian Hart) A old-school Jewish baker (Mr. Pryce) hires a Muslim teenager to give him a hand, not realizing the teenager also sells marijuana. Naturally, when some of the marijuana gets into the dough, business booms. Its a funny yet poignant serio-comedy that nicely hits its mark. Not Rated: Adult situations.Hello, My Name Is Doris (Sally Field, Max Greenfield, Tyne Daly) Sixty-something Doris (Ms. Field) falls for her 20-something (Mr. Greenfield) co-worker. Ms. Field makes Doris so endearing and likeable that we easily look past her characters un-thought-out desires. Its a cute movie. Rated R.Zootopia 1/2(Voices of Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba) From Disney Animation (Frozen), a small town bunny (Ms. Goodwin) moves to the big city and teams up with a sly fox (Mr. Bateman) to track down missing mammals. Great visuals, ample funny moments for kids and adults and a slew of memorable furry characters make this an absolute delight. Rated PG.Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (Tina Fey, Martin Freeman, Margot Robbie) A TV news journalist (Ms. Fey) battles sexism and bureaucracy while covering Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan starting in 2003. Although Ms. Fey shows a mix of dramatic acting chops alongside her perfect comic timing, the film as a whole doesnt handle the shifting tones between comedy and drama nearly as well. Still, its intriguing and enjoyable. Rated R. How To Be Single (Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Alison Brie) New York City singles find themselves among friends not romantic partners in this smart comedy. Ms. Wilson gets the biggest laughs with Leslie Mann coming in a close second. Best of all, this film allows people to be single and happy, which is a rarity in movies. Rated R.The Witch (Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie) In Puritan New England circa 1630, a family that lives on its own in the woods is tormented by witchcraft. Its minimalist and moody, though not altogether enticing. Shocks come, but there are too few. Rated R.

NoDemolition is a movie about a man who doesnt feel emotions, and as a result we feel nothing for him. If you cant emotionally invest in the main character, why watch a drama? Instinctively our hearts want to break for Davis (Jake Gyllenhaal) when his wife is killed in a car accident, but when he cant even bring himself to so much as shed a tear, well, its hard for us to give a damn about anything that comes after. Clearly hes not processing the loss, we think. Hes in denial. Shock. We all grieve in our own way, right? But he never snaps out of it, and indications are he was like this well before his wifes death. Davis also has no friends. He hates his job as a money manager working for his father-in-law Phil (Chris Cooper). He claims he didnt love his late wife (Heather Lind). Hes numb to the world, indifferent about everything. And yet, given his propensity to confess deeply personal things to complete strangers, clearly he yearns for a connection. In a clever bit of storytelling, director Jean-Marc Vallee (Dallas Buyers Club) uses complaint letters Davis writes to a vending machine company as personal discourses that allow us to learn his backstory. At the offending company, the letters pique the interest of Karen (Naomi Watts), a single mother of 15-year-old Chris (Judah Lewis) with issues of her own. She resists meeting Davis, but soon they form a symbiotic bond that is never quite believable. Her backstory is never discussed, and why theyre drawn to one another is anyones guess. To make matters worse, Davis is a terrible role model for Chris, even if Bryan Sipes screenplay tries hard to make you think otherwise. Heres another thing: Phil tells Davis to tear things apart and examine everything so he can put all the pieces back together. Davis takes this literally, even going so far as to pay construction guys so he can do their work for them. While this provides for a movie title that otherwise makes no sense, its nonetheless bad advice. Davis proceeds to destroy his refrigerator, work computer, a cappuccino machine and later his house. Why is he doing this, exactly? Its never clear. He rarely shows and never discusses his emotions. You kind of feel bad for Mr. Gyllenhaal because his character is the equivalent of a stone and (worse) has the personality of one. Even someone as phenomenally talented as Mr. Gyllenhaal will struggle with a script this opaque. Ms. Watts doesnt fare much better. One senses she knows her character is a lost soul but isnt quite sure how damaged she is, resulting in a middling rather than impactful performance. Judah Lewis does better playing her son, though Chris relationship with Davis feels a bit forced and heavyhanded. And give credit to Chris Cooper: The Oscar winner (Adaptation) has the hurt for the loss of his daughter all over his face in every scene, and the movie is stronger because of it. Unfortunately, the rest of Demolition is notably less compelling. Simply put, you cannot tell a story like this without getting the viewer to invest emotionally in the characters, which means you cannot have a lead character who is emotionless. If he feels nothing, we feel nothing. Perhaps on paper Mr. Vallee, who did so well in getting us to care for the characters in Dallas Buyers Club and Wild, thought there was enough in the script for him to bring the story to life visually. Turns out he was wrong. t t t g s t dan >> In Southpa w, Jake Gyllenhaals character also deals with his wifes death, but in that case there was a hyper-emotional response.

A series of chairs by Robert Venturi that were first sold in 1985 represented the work of eight periods of furniture: Queen Anne, Chippendale, Sheraton, Biedermeier, Empire, Gothic Revival, Art Nouveau and Art Deco. Made of plywood by Knoll, each chair is a cutout form shaped like the 18th-, 19thor 20th-century chair it represents. The chairs are covered in a plastic laminate and some have fabric cushions. One version of the Chippendale chair is covered in the Grandmothers Tablecloth pattern (the pastel flowers actually were inspired by a friends grandmothers tablecloth). These chairs are seen in homes, shops and auctions today. In the 1980s, one could sell for up to $16,000, but now many more of the chairs have been made and prices have dropped. A Grandmothers Tablecloth Chippendale chair sold by Skinner in 2015 brought $6,150. Q: I have a treasured picture frame given to me by my grandmother. It is white porcelain with painted flowers and gold trim. The mark on the back looks like an E over an S with 1811 in the bottom curve of the S and Prufsia (Prussia?) below. Do you know the history from the mark? And can you give me its value? A: The mark on your frame was used by a company founded in 1861 by Leonard Schlegelmilch (1823-1898) in Suhl, Germany, and named in memory of his father, Erdmann Schlegelmilch (1782-1 844). The Schlegelmilch names and factories confused collectors for years until extensive research in the mid-1980s sorted out the families and companies. The Erdmann Schlegelmilch company made porcelain kitchenware, tableware, giftware, figurines, coffee and tea sets and, for a time, containers for perfume lamps. After Leonard died, his son Julius Martin ran the business, which reached its peak in 1913. The company closed in 1937. Erdmann Schlegelmilch items are marked ES Germany or ES Suhl. Other pieces, like your frame, were made at a factory in Saxony, Prussia, and bear the mark ES Prussia. The mark on your frame has the date 1861, the founding date (not 1811). Prufsia is Prussia (the double s is in old German writing). The value of your frame is $75. Q: I have a small salve container that belonged to my father. Its made of tin and is about 2 inches high. The screw-off lid is embossed Medicat 60, Trial Size, Resinol Shaving Stick. On the bottom, it reads under the Food & Drugs Act, June 30, 1906. What is its antique value? A: Resinol Chemical Company was started in Baltimore, Md., in 1895 by Dr. Merville Hamilton Carter, his brother Allan and a cousin. The company made soap and other products that contained Resinol ointment, supposed to clear up pimples, eczema and other problems. A 1916 ad for the shav-

Black lines change it to a more modern look. The 37-inch chair sold at auction last year for $6, stick said it contained the Resinol medication so that it soothes and refreshes the face. The 1906 Food & Drug Act was replaced in 1938 by the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. Resinol was listed as a soap manufacturer in business directories after 1956. Although one ad online priced a Resinol tin at $300, it had no bidders. The actual value is about $10, Q: I have a marble and bronze bust signed Schumacher. Id like to know something about the maker, how old it is and how to clean it. A : The Schumacher Foundry in Austria made bronze and alabaster busts and full-length figures from about 1900 to the 1920s. Alabaster can be damaged by improper handling and cleaning. Water causes it to dissolve, and wax will eventually cause discoloration. Simply dust alabaster by brushing it with a soft bristle brush. Works made at the Schumacher foundry have sold at auction for a few hundred dollars to more than $2,000. Fulllength figures usually bring higher prices than busts.

CELEBRITY EXTRARizzoli and Isles wrapping up BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: Can you tell me when Rizzoli and Isles will be back? And is it true that this is the shows final season? Peter F., via emailA: This seventh season of Rizzoli and Isles is indeed the crime-solving duos last hurrah. TNTs hit comedy-drama returns with its final 13 episodes on Monday, June 6, at 9/8c. I also have the premiere dates for the rest of TNTs blockbuster summer series. Premiering June 7 is a new series called Animal Kingdom, which stars Ellen Barkin. The series centers on 17-year-old Joshua Cody (played by Finn Cole), who moves in with his freewheeling relatives in their Southern California beach town after his mother dies of a heroin overdose. The family is headed by Janine Cody (played by Ellen) and her right-hand man Baz (played by Scott Speedman), who runs the business and calls the shots. Josh realizes that joining the family comes with more danger than he might be ready to handle. Q: I loved Gone Girl, both the book and the movie. Are there any more of Gillian Flynns books in the running for a movie adaptation? Ellie W., via emailA: I also loved Gone Girl. It's really difficult for me to find a movie adaptation that I like and that I feel does the book justice, but this one definitely did for me. Charlize Theron starred in the movie adaptation of Dark Places, which came out in 2015 and is now available on DVD and streaming. HBO also just announced that Sharp Objects will be adapted into an eight-episode original series and will star Amy Adams. For me, this is the best way to adapt a book because you can cover a lot more of the books ground that you can with a movie. The story centers on Camille Preaker, played by Amy, who is a journalist in Chicago trying to make a better life for herself following years of self-harm that landed her in a psychiatric hospital. Camille returns to her hometown of Wind Gap, Missouri, to cover the murder of a preteen girl and the disappearance of another. Q: I havent heard mention of Gerard Depardieu in a while. Does he have anything in the pipeline? Sam T., Webster, N.Y.A: The accomplished French actor stars in Netflixs original drama series Marseille, which is the networks first original French production. The eight-episode series available for streaming beginning May 5 follows the mayor of Marseille, Robert Taro (played by Gerard), who enters into a war of succession with his former protege turned rival Lucas Barres, played by Benoit Magimel.

The novels protagonist, Jesse Lowe, has run away with her fathers best friend, Corbin Tillis. Jesses father died when she was 5 and now 16, she longs to discover more about him. Corbin was just released from prison after serving a sentence on drug charges. He has reluctantly agreed to take Jesse on his travels around the state.Corbin slowed the truck as they came on a trailer park set against the swamp. Are we stopping here? Jesse asked. Corbin nodded. I need to see some people. About what? About a boat. Corbin parked in front of a yellow trailer with a fine patina of black mold spread across the front. Three wooden steps led to a small porch with a corrugated tin roof eaten away by rust. He stepped out of the truck and left Jesse sitting in the cab. Through the windshield smeared with insects, she watched as a short, dark-skinned woman came out of the trailer. The woman wore an apron and had a long braid hanging down her back. She watched Corbin with a neutral expression, her arms crossed over her chest. He talked until she dropped her arms and let him pull her into a hug, kissing the top of her head. When they stepped apart, she saw Jesse sitting in the truck. Her brows came together and she crossed her arms again. Corbin followed her glance over his shoulder then spoke some more. After a time she nodded, a gesture so slight Jesse almost missed it, and turned to go back inside the trailer. Corbin came back to the truck and leaned in through the open window. Lets go. Where are we going? Jesse asked. Were spending the night here. In the trailer? Corbin laughed. What? You never slept in a trailer? Jesse followed him across the yard and up the steps. The days heat felt weighty inside the trailer, substantial, the way it does in a windowless shed. The space was strangely quiet without air conditioning. A mixing bowl sat on the counter in the kitchen and a frying pan smoked on the stove. Corbin pulled out two chairs from the kitchen table. This is Lida, Corbin said as he sat. She makes the best damn fry bread in Big Cypress. Lida glanced at Jesse but didnt say anything. She pinched off a piece of dough and began to pat it in her hands. Corbin eyed her over the table as she dropped the patty into the oil. You hear from your brother much? he said. Billie? Hes around. Around here? Sometimes. The batter crackled in the hot grease and droplets spattered around the stove. Lida flipped the rounds with a fork. Is he still running boats? Corbin asked. Sure, Lida said. Airboats. Pole boats. The real Indian experience. Thats not what I mean. When Lida didnt say more, Corbin said, Dont give me that silent Indian bullshit. The corner of Lidas mouth crooked up in a smile. She fished out the patties and set them on a folded piece of newspaper to drain. They dont run it anymore, she said. Its all home grown now. Where they growing it? Hialeah. Bad people out that way. Lida made a small noise of acknowledgement. She wrapped a piece of fry bread in a paper towel and handed it to Jesse. Jesse took a careful bite and the hot bread burned her tongue. Im looking for a boat, Corbin said. Lida turned off the burner and moved the skillet to the back of the stove. What kind of boat? A fishing boat. What do you need a boat for? I have to get to Nassau. Lida glanced at Jesse. She going with you? Jesse looked up from the fry bread in her hands. No, Corbin said. You sure? Lida asked. Corbin leaned back in his chair and propped a foot on the table leg. Give me some of that fry bread before I come across this table after you. Lida untied her apron and handed Corbin a piece of bread. You got any booze in this joint? he asked.

One of Gaetano Donizettis most popular works, it is the story of Nemorino, a poor peasant in love with a beautiful landowner, Adina, and t ormented by her utte r indifference. The production includes both celebrated and up-and-coming artists from around the world, accompanied by the Gulfshore Opera Orchestra and Chorus and with dancers from Gulfshore Ballet. Irish tenor Anthony Kearns, South African bass-baritone Musa Ngqungwana and American soprano Danielle Talamantes lead the cast. Mr. Kearns, who is known around the world for his PBS appearances and has performed locally numerous times, is making his debut in the role of Nemorino. Mr. Ngqungwana is revisiting the role of the operas charlatan medicine man. About her leading role of Adina, Ms. Talamantes says, My season this year has been filled with dramatic concert work and intense operas, so Elixir is going to feel wonderfully refreshing and playful. Baritone Wes Mason, a former classmate of Mr. Ngqungwana at the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia, sings the role of the pompous Sergeant Belcore. Ryan McAdam conducts the production for Gulfshore Opera. A Fulbright Scholar and the first-ever recipient of the Sir Georg Solti Emerging Conductor Award, Mr. McAdam made his Eastern European debut with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields and has led the Israel Philharmonic in three performances.

If you want something a little more novel than lemonade and a little less potent than a margarita, you should give shrubs a try. A combination of vinegar and fruit syrup, shrubs can be mixed with liquor, sparkling water or wine to create drinks that are sweet, tart and light for a variety of palates. Heres a recipe provided by Vom Fass, which hosts a shrub tasting from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, April 23, at its Mercato location. Appleberry Shrub 1 pint raspberries, blackberries or blueberries, fresh or frozen, thawed 1 cups Vom Fass Apple Balsamic Star Vinegar cup sugar Ice Club soda Bring berries, balsamic and sugar to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat and steep for 30 minutes for berries to release their juices. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a glass jar, pressing solids to extract as much liquid as possible. Cover and chill. This concentrate can be made up to three days ahead. When ready to serve, fill a 12-ounce glass with ice, at 2 TBS of concentrate and top with club soda. Stir to blend.

C30 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY VINOIs this man The King of Chardonnay?His name is Miljenko Grgich, but everybody calls him Mike, for apparent reasons. And, since this year is the 40th anniversary of the so-called Judgment of Paris, its time you get to know him and his wines. If youve seen the movie Bottle Shock, you know that the famous blind tasting held in Paris in 1976 consisted of a lineup of American and French wines sampled by a panel of Frances most distinguished connoisseurs and critics. In the red category, six of the top 10 winners were American, including Stags Leap, Clos du Val, and Ridge Montebello. In fact, several of the judges ranked two of the American wines in first and second place against the finest Bordeauxes. In the white wine judging, three of the top four wines were American, including the No. 1 Chardonnay, Chateau Montelena. Though the movie does not disclose this, Mr. Grgich, working at Montelena at the time, made that wine. The event put American wines squarely on the world stage, and Mike was a big part of it, even though he says he had no idea a blind tasting was happening in Paris. I was winemaker and limited partner at Montelena, he recalls, but was not told by Mr. Barrett about the event. He relates that in the previous year, the estates 1972 Chardonnay won over three best French Chardonnays at a tasting in San Diego. I knew it was something important when a reporter from The New York Times called to say they were sending a photographer to take my picture! Imagine! A little immigrant named Mike Grgich was to be in a famous New York newspaper. I started dancing around the winery and singing in Croatian that I was born again! It was a miracle! Mike also remembers that the prizewinning Chardonnay sold, at the time, for $6.50 a bottle. Today, theres one bottle on display in the Smithsonian Museum to commemorate the event. The results of the Paris tasting changed his life. As soon as the story was released, I started getting offers to become a winemaker, he told me. But I had always wanted to own my own winery. I had a five-year agreement that ended in 1977 and I told Mr. Barrett that I would be leaving at the end of the contract. I earned 1 percent ownership for each year I was winemaker at Chateau Montelena, and I took the money from that to purchase land in Rutherford. The rest, as they say, is wine world history. Today, Grgich Hills Estate produces a wide assortment of wines from classic varietals, at several different (and attractive) price points. I have always thought acid is important in white wines, he says. Our wines are dry, crisp, balanced, food friendly, aromatic, not too oaky. He wants his wines to give a lingering enjoyment. They do. Grgich Hills Estate Chardonnay Napa Valley 2013 According to Mike, 2013 was a nearly perfect vintage for Chardonnay. This sample, from vineyards in the southern tip of Napa Valley, gives off peach aromas and that characteristic tutti-frutti Chardonnay nose. On the palate, there are hints of mango and a mix of tropical fruits. WW 92, about $40. Grgich Hills Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013 The law says that if you want to call your wine by a varietal name (like Cabernet Sauvignon) there must be at least 75 percent of that grape in the bottle. The rest can be whatever. In this case, the rest is a yummy blend of Bordeaux varietals, including Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot. As youd expect from this particular combination, there are bold, full-bodied flavors of currant, mocha and licorice, with spicy hints of cinnamon. WW 91-92 points, about $70. Grgich Hills Estate Zinfandel Napa Valley 2012 Its a bit rare to grow Zinfandel in Napa, but Mike does in a 34-acre vineyard above Calistoga. He co-ferments his Zinfandel with about 2 percent Petite Sirah to add complexity and structure. This wine is very true to type, with big blackberry flavors, black cherry, and perhaps a peppery note way in the back. Of course, youd drink this wine at your July 4 cookout, with grilled meats, chicken and lots of barbecue sauce. WW 91, about $35.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: My small wine refrigerator stopped working, and Im worried about the condition of the wines inside. Whats the best way to store them if theres no cooling? C. Gold, Fort MyersA: The biggest enemies of wine are light, heat and vibration. If your bottles are stored in a moderately dark place (not on the kitchen windowsill), protected from vibration (not on top of the fridge), and kept at a constant temperature, they should be fine for a while.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C31 CUISINE NEWSSushi-Thai Too serves the best of both worldsWooden sculptures shaped like trees with outstretched limbs reach toward the ceiling of the dining room at SushiThai Too, conjuring the experience of strolling through an enchanted forest. Metal lotus leaves in decorative arrangements hang on several walls, and the dark copper color of the ceiling tiles warms the space considerably. Youd never have known such a unique atmosphere awaited based on the restaurants generic commercial plaza exterior. The former location of David Wongs Pan Asian & Sushi and earlier Cilantro Tamales, this Bonita Springs restaurant is the newest of four Sushi-Thai outlets; the original is in Naples Park, and the others are on Airport-Pulling Road and Fifth Avenue. Clearly, the owners have found a successful formula pairing the cuisines of Japan and Thailand (others, such as Komoon just down the road, have followed suit). Aside from the exotic ambience, there are other qualities that set SushiThai Too apart from similar pan-Asian concepts. The service is remarkably brisk, thanks in part to an extensive service staff that works cooperatively; we lost track of the number of different people who came to our table to serve or remove dishes. Entrees may be a tad more expensive than at other Thai restaurants, but a tureen of Sushi-Thais curry is ample enough to feed two or three diners. On this visit we were more interested in the Thai offerings, but we did try one makimono roll that sounded like something wed never had before. The kimchee roll ($9.95) was filled with remarkably tender conch, spinach, asparagus, scallions and cucumber and laced with the spicy, sweet and sour sauce used for the namesake Korean fermentedcabbage dish. The roll was constructed with a deft touch. Our other appetizer, the soft spring roll ($9.95), was a variation of the Vietnamese summer roll a softened wonton filled with vegetables and seafood. This one had shrimp, krab, cooked egg (tamago), cucumber and spring lettuce mix. Dipping it into the peanut sauce provided added another layer of flavor, but I missed the distinctive flourish that fresh herbs bring to the Vietnamese version. The first course was enjoyed with glasses of milky Nigori sake ($7) and Clifford Bay Sauvignon Blanc ($8), a citrusy wine from New Zealand. Wine offerings are decent, if not extensive. Dishes were quickly cleared away, and the main course soon arrived. SushThai Too offers all of the curries you would expect, along with sautees, noodle dishes and some unusual homestyle specialties (including the intriguing Swimming Angel chicken and shrimp topped with peanut sauce over a bed of broccoli and tomatoes). On the Japanese side, there are teriyaki and tempura dishes, soba and udon noodles, stir-fries and dombori (rice bowls). From the curry dishes we settled on the Massaman with shrimp ($18.95). Again, the price might raise some eyebrows, but half of the serving went home for another meal. The creamy coconut-milk sauce contained lots onion, potatoes and shrimp along with some surprising garnishes of cashews and sliced avocado just a touch different from what you get in most Thai restaurants. I didnt detect any of the Thai herbs the menu mentioned, other than what youd find in chili paste, but nonetheless the sauce achieved a good balance of sweet and heat. In contrast, the chicken with basil sauce ($14.95) had a generous amount of fresh herbs to provide that signature minty lift. Juicy and flavorful, the sliced chicken breast was tossed with copious amounts of crisp bell peppers, green beans and onions. We ordered our dishes hot not Thai hot but did not find them overly spicy at all. They achieved just the right level of lip tingling associated with Thai food. Dessert is not something generally emphasized in Thai restaurants, but you can get tempura ice cream, fried bananas or lychees. I find it hard to pass up Thai doughnuts pa thong ko, they call them in Thailand, where theyre a popular street treat. Every culture seems to have its version of fried dough, and whats not to love when you can dip these warm, crusty bits in sweetened condensed milk? At Sushi-Thai Too, they snip the half-moon shaped doughnuts so they sort of resemble the silhouette of a lotus flower. Nice touch. According to our ticket, we ordered and settled up in an hour and 20 minutes, which is fairly quick for a threecourse meal. Thai fast food SushiThai Too is onto something there.

YOUR GUIDE TO NEW HOME COMMUNITIES IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA When something fits perfectly, it feels right. Residents at Raffia Preserve often find that feeling is an experience they share in common whether they are swimming at the resort-style pool, working out in the state-of-the-art fitness center, enjoying play dates at the playground, or sharing stories fireside in the clubroom at the end of a relaxing day. A Warm WelcomeBob and Kay DeTeso recognized that feeling during their first visit to Raffia Preserve. Now, a little more than a year later, the DeTesos are enjoying life as residents in one of WCI Communities North Naples communities. The first residents to move into Raffia Preserve in late 2014, the DeTesos considered a half dozen communities when looking for a Naples home. Kay said once they saw the variety of home designs and learned about the reasonable HOA fees at Raffia Preserve, they knew it was the right fit for their new easygoing Southwest Florida lifestyle. The DeTesos relish being Raffia Preserves first residents. Were like pioneers, Bob laughed. The DeTesos will make Raffia Preserve their full-time home this year as they complete the transition from their Massachusetts residence to their new three-bedroom, two-bath Egret Executive Home. They also are looking forward to hosting visiting family from up North. Were only minutes from the beach! said Kay. The DeTesos are already taking advantage of the 7,400-square-foot community clubhouse and resort-style pool. WCI completed Raffia Preserves amenities early so new homeowners can experience ample opportunities to share an active, social lifestyle with their neighbors. The clubhouse events have been a great way to meet people, and were starting yoga classes soon, said Kay. Everyone is so warm and friendly. Room to GrowThe Prasad family moved from St. Louis to Naples five years ago. But as the children grew, so did the familys need for more space. Our house initially seemed fine, with four bedrooms and 2,500 square feet, said Lisa Prasad. But as our kids start heading into the teenage years, we knew we would need more room for our active family. So the hunt began! Lisa started her search online and narrowed the list to communities in the convenient area of Naples she knew she already loved for its proximity to great schools and easy shopping. Last fall, the Prasads visited Raffia Preserve for the first time. We were first attracted by the location its close to everything, yet tucked away, she said. The Prasads selected a Pelican Executive Home. With four bedrooms, three baths, den and powder room, the 3,604 square-foot Pelican is particularly popular with families who need plenty of room. Lisa especially likes the privacy afforded by the homes two-story design, in which bedrooms are situated upstairs, away from the main living area. I love the wide hallways and the bright, open feel of the second floor, she said. The loft is the designated kid hangout space for studying and playing video games, and we use the great room together as a family. Its exciting to see the neighborhood taking shape, with families and children of all ages, she added. Offering only 363 single-family homes, Raffia Preserve emphasizes outdoor living within a 184-acre Southwest Florida setting of palm trees, nature preserves and lakes. Raffia Preserve offers 15 oneand twostory Executive Home and Estate designs that include granite-countertop kitchens with freestanding islands and 18-by-18-inch ceramic tile flooring in select rooms.

Offering from 2,053 to 4,457 square feet of living space, select homes have bonus and flex rooms, three-car garages and second floors for bedrooms, lofts, media centers and game rooms all designed to make it easy to find your perfect fit.

Seaglass lifestyle to include Bonita Bays diverse dining optionsWith binding and pending sales contracts worth more than $90 million already processed and construction now underway, the future residents of the 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high rise tower being built by The Ronto Group within Bonita Bay are looking forward to enjoying the communitys award-winning lifestyle. With various membership opportunities, the future residents of Seaglass will have a diverse array of on-property dining and lounge choices. As part of its Vision 2013 initiative, the Bonita Bay Club redesigned the kitchen and traditional dining areas in the clubhouse. The redesign incorporated a 40-feet long buffet station in the dining space. Solid surface cooling tops, a cooking area, and sub-surface mounted heating elements are included in the design. The shape of the buffet station enhances the appeal of the dining room and contributes to a more efficient diner flow. The Club transformed the former golf pro shop into what is now the 55th Hole, an approximately 3,500 square feet highend casual bar experience. The design capitalizes on both the interior space and the surrounding areas to create an indoor/ outdoor venue. Nano doors open to covered and open outdoor spaces and a patio with the largest fire pit in Florida. Inside, the design affords views of a minimum of three televisions from every seat. Eight 60-inch television screens area incorporated into a ceiling-mounted structure suspended over a square bar. A 127-inch media wall with 18 LED panels can function as one screen or as four. The 55th Hole is a favored place for socializing. Ninety-seven percent of the members visited the venue last year. The Bonita Bay Club completed a threestory, 60,000 square feet Lifestyle Center last year. The Lifestyle Center is located in the Promenade complex adjacent to Bonita Bay. The completion of the Lifestyle Center contributed to Bonita Bay being recognized as one of the ten healthiest clubs in America by Prevo Health Solutions. Situated adjacent to the 20,000 square feet fitness center on the second floor, the WAVE Caf serves healthy fast food, fresh organic juices, and smoothies. The WAVE acronym serves as the brand for the Bonita Bay Clubs healthy initiatives and stands for Wellness and Vitality Enhancement. Menu selections include salads, bowls, pressed sandwiches and wraps, soups, and protein selections such as salmon, steamed chicken, grilled lean beef, and protein alternatives for vegetarians. An assortment of freshly made toppings is available. Hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with food service available at 10:30 a.m. Backwater Jacks, a waterfront restaurant and bar at the full-service Bonita Bay Marina, is a favored gathering place for boating enthusiasts. The dining and lounge experience is overseen by Matt McNeff, formerly managing partner at Bonefish Grill in Bonita Springs. An all-new menu offering flavorful twists on Backwater Jacks casual dining selections was introduced for season. Dinner is served Tuesday through Sunday evenings and lunch service will extend through season. A 4:00 to 6:30 p.m. happy hour includes drink discounts and a bar food menu. All selections are available for takeout. Live music by an assortment of artists is featured Friday and Saturday nights during season. Special events and themed parties are open to Bonita Bay residents and their guests. Backwater Jacks is also available for events by special interest clubs, community parties, and private dinners. Bonita Bays Naples Club facility on Immokalee Road is home to two of the communitys five golf courses. The Club offers a pure golf experience on over 1,000 acres with preserved wetlands and no residential development. A Club Room within the clubhouse offers additional dining options and serves as the Naples Clubs primary dining venue. Another dining venue will be introduced this year. A 10,000 square feet building that formerly housed the communitys fitness center and spa will be transformed into a tennis clubhouse with casual dining and an indoor/outdoor bar. The space will include a tennis pro shop, locker rooms, a stretching room, multifunction rooms, and a relaxing lobby area. Nano doors will open the entire space to the outdoors and the new exhibition court. Caf style seating will be available outside. Situated nearly 250 feet from its closest neighboring building, Seaglass will feature fully-completed, ready for occupancy residences with designer-selected premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available. Seaglass will showcase the open living environments that luxury homebuyers prefer and offer a level of livability rarely found in high-rise environments. The elegant residences will be accessed by private elevator foyers and feature spacious great rooms, large centrally located kitchens, and two or three expansive outdoor terraces per residence, one of which will include a grill. The terraces and extensive use of glass throughout the residences will provide stunning views of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, Bonita Bays golf courses, and mangrove preserves. The Seaglass towers second floor will connect to an amenity complex previously designed by architect Santiesteban & Associates. Amenities in place include a theater, guest suites, card and club rooms, a fitness facility that features mens and womens spas with steam and massage rooms, a resortstyle walk-in pool and spa, and a deck with a covered cabana that includes a bar and grill. Plans for the tower include a rooftop amenity deck available to all residents. For additional information, visit the Seaglass Sales Center from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and Sundays from noon to 5:00 p.m. Visit Seaglass online at Above: Bonita Bays 55th Hole offers an approximately 3,500 square feet highend casual bar experience.

Kalea Bays community amenities popular with buyers Clubhouse area under constructionIf the clubhouse is the social and recreational centerpiece of a community then this fabulous amenity of Kalea Bay will surely be one of the busiest places in the gated, luxury residential high-rise community currently being developed on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. There are several reasons why buyers have decided to purchase at Kalea Bay, said Inga Wilson, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. The first is the beautifully designed three-bedroom plus den/three-and-ahalf-bath and four-bedroom/four-bath tower residences with Gulf views. The other is our spectacular community clubhouse. Not only will it be a dramatic site as residents and visitors drive into the community, but it will also be the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance and is currently under construction. The clubhouse will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Wilson. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Wilson. The indoor/outdoor restaurant will serve phenomenal meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. Nearby are 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity many of our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Wilson. Rather than putting their guests up in hotels throughout the Naples and Bonita Springs area, they can vacation within the community. Its a real convenience. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to a designated Gulf beach. Three of the best beaches in the country are only minutes away from Kalea Bay, stated Wilson. Construction on the clubhouse is slated for completion in the summer of next year and will coincide with the anticipated move-in of the residents in the first tower. The 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. At the current time construction crews are working on the towers 12th floor, which is helping buyers see the value of purchasing now. As of early April, our total sales volume exceeded the $125 million mark, stated Wilson. Also, of the 120 residences in the first tower, 73 have already been sold. Six floor plans are available at Kalea Bay with prices currently starting at $1.3 million. Residences 1 and 6 are 4-bedroom/4bath plans with 3,755 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with three-bedrooms plus den and three-and-a-half baths, have 3,835 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/fourbath plans with 3,921 total square feet. Wilson said spectacular views are available to every resident, no matter which floor they live on. Spectacular views are available to every single resident at Kalea Bay, said Wilson. With all our rooftop amenities including our sky lounge, pool and open-air fitness center, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves that surround us and, of course, the beaches. Those beaches include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally in 2015, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center. It is located just north of Wiggins Pass just off Vanderbilt Drive at 13910 Old Coast Road in North Naples. Additional information is available by calling (239) 7930110 or online at Above: Kalea Bay residences will enjoy their clubhouse day and night.

BY LINDA DONNELLYSpecial to Florida WeeklyJuan Carlos Collada has always loved butter flies. When he was a child of 5, his mother embroidered a large butterf ly on the back of a denim jacket for him, and it was the most magnificent thing he had ever seen. I dont still have it, sadly, but I loved it, and it will forever hold a special place in my heart, he says. Mr. Colladas is a heart that is very full indeed, as many of the pieces he creates have a restorative, almost therapeutic process and result. For a recent remodeling of the Ronald McDonald House, Mr. Collada designed one of his most exquisite pieces for the foyer. Project Design 2016 involved 20 designers who put their stamp on 20 spaces at the house. They graciously donated their time, designs and resources to transform the facility that provides free room and board to the families of seriously ill children who are patients at the nearby Golisano Childrens Hospital in South Fort Myers. Mr. Collada collaborated with Suzanne Costa of Suzanne Costa Interiors to redesign and refresh the main entry to the house. The result is a breathtaking welcome that has tremendous emotional significance. The butte rflies in the bottom left portion of this design are pale from sickness as they enter the heart shape, Mr. Collado explains. The heart represents love, health and family, and it cures them with warmth, comfort and kindness while they stay at the facility. And when they leave at the top right of the piece, they are vibrant and healthy and full of color. This artwork, which incorporates hundreds of butter flies that are actually made from feathers, has become a symbolic focal point of not only the foyer, but of the entire Ronald McDonald House, greeting weary families when they arrive and conversely sending them back out feeling loved and nurtured by the RMH staff and their surroundings. People ask me all the time how I catch the b utter flies, Mr. Collada says, adding with a laugh, Even though they are made of feathers, I tell them 4 a.m. is the best time to hunt for them. He has a whimsical free spirit, in a way mimick-A unique approach to mixed media creates an emotional art formFloatlike a Juan Carlos Collada and interior designer Suzanne Costa at the gala celebration of the refreshed and renovated Ronald McDonald House.

Im simply amazed by them. The hand-paint ed feather butte rflies actually come from London, Australia and China, but he often customizes many of the colors using acrylics and sometimes even hobby paint for the metallic finishes. Only 20 pieces of this multimedia art wall sculpture collection have been made to date, but clients are loving them. Mr. Collada, who has homes in Naples and Toronto, also creates wood sculptures, one of which will be installed in a Salem Homes project in Naples to incorporate into the interior design by his life partner, Jeffrey Fisher of Jeffrey Fisher Home. Always in pursuit of inspiration, Mr. Collada just returned from a month in Mexico during which he took a threeweek stone-sculpting course at one of the oldest art institutes in Mexico. He fell in love with the process and enjoyed the one-on-one lessons with a renowned sculptor. Coming from a family of marble masons (his father and grandfather both practiced the trade), he would play, glue, sand and chisel in his early years in Fort Lauderdale. Where his cottage in Toronto is, he says, there is a species of monarchs that sadly are becoming extinct. They need the milkweed plant for various stages of their development, and its getting cut out by people in the lake region where the species have to lay their eggs and develop. So, Im starting to plant the exact types of plants that they need to stay alive and grow, he says. Ironically, it seems the butter flies themselves have the same restorative connection to Mr. Collada as he does to them.Juan Carlos Collada (647) 982-1142 A seven-panel installation from Mr. Colladas Flight series makes a stunning focal point in the great room of a luxury home, above.

interior design A designer and artist join forces to take this home to the next level 12 LUXE LIVING APRIL 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYCOVER STORY BY LINDA DONNELLYSpecial to Florida WeeklySometimes a homeowner just gets lucky when choosing from among many designers and subcontractors for a new home design project. Often there is a learning curve for the key players who must all get to know each others style and work seamlessly together in order to achieve the most successful finished result. On this stunning luxury estate in Quail West, however, two of those key players had already developed a remarkable rapport on previous collaborations. Neither Leslie Thompson of Malibu West Interiors nor Christopher OGuin of OGuin Decorative Arts knew that the homeowner had chosen them for the new project on Woodmont Court until they both turned up at the house to their great surprise and delight. Since wed worked together before, I knew what Christopher was capable of doing, and I knew what finishes are his specialty. Hes really good with color, and I was able to match our fabrics around the palettes of his artistry, Ms. Thompson says. To make the process even more of a pleasure, the homeowner was willing to try new things and completely trusted Ms. Thompson and Mr. OGuin to do what they do best. Clients lately have been using my art finishes to add a punch of interest, to highlight a grouping of furniture, to create a focal wall or to replace more typical stacked stone or slab marble, Mr. OGuin says. In this case, he chose Calce Petra, a matte white plaster with flecks of natural stone and silver mica, for the walls throughout the GIOVANNI PHOTOGRAPHYA feature wall in the master bath with tufted plaster panels and hand-painted highlights adds drama and intimacy to the space.Artist Christopher OGuin and interior designer Leslie Thompson

Its from a small, Italian manufacturer whose family has been making lime putty f or plasters since the 1920s, he says, adding its also one of Ms. Thompsons favorite wall finishes. It was a perfect choice for this project, as it is equally at home in classic or contemporary settings. To complement the updated traditional feel of the Quail West home, the organic movement and matte sheen of the plaster are classic, but updated with the addition of a glimmering silver fleck. In the dining room, extensive renovations to what was a standard coffered ceiling yielded a contemporary round tray cutout of the rooms rectangular lines. Above the large circular dining table, the silver blue color of the textured metallic paint finish complements the draperies and the beautiful hand-knotted rug that were chosen by Ms. Thompson. In the master bath, tufted plaster panels with hand-painted highlights add drama and intimacy to her vanity, while wide horizontal stripes with chrome edging continue visual lines SEE COVER STORY, 14 The grand foyer has a porcelain tile floor, dramatic crystal chandelier and a collage wall of colorfully framed photographs.

16 APRIL 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLY DESIGN & ART BY LINDA DONNELLYSpecial to Florida WeeklySince 2008, Elliott Design & Interiors and its principal interior designer, Mickey Dickson, have been creating beautiful spaces in Southwest Florida. But with the launch of a unique mixed-use space called J.A. Willy Gallery, owner Joe Marzucco has created a niche that many interior designers would agree is much desired in the industry. Often my clients turn to me as their designer to advise and facilitate the procurement of fine art for the projects we have together, Ms. Dickson says. What better way to provide beauty, resources and options but to have the direct accessibility to a fine art gallery adjacent to the design studio? Although not a fit for every project, as some clients may never have been introduced to fine art previously, Mr. Marzucco felt it a great way to give clients that introduction. About a year ago, he acquired the 3,300-square-foot space just south of Pine Ridge Road on Tamiami Trial and dedicated 1,900 square feet to the gallery enterprise (the design studio occupies the remaining 1,400 square feet). Ms. Dickson then assisted in procuring 25 to 30 artists with an emphasis on contemporary, but still representing choices for a broader audience. The space strikes the perfect balance between art and design. Its artists are primarily exclusive in this region, but do hail from all over the United States with representation elsewhere as well. I like what I like, and Ive come to know this area and its lifestyle pretty well, Ms. Dickson says. So I try to assist in selecting art I think the Naples homeowner would like in their home here. Many of Ms. Dicksons clients are finding art for their EDI projects at J.A. Willy Gallery, affectionately named after Ms. Dickson and Mr. Marzuccos 3-yearold son, Jack Anthony William. Other area interior designers are responding well to this resource and turning to it for art for their residential and commercial projects as well. Michael Laut, the assistant gallery director, hails from New York and has been brought on board to guide the direction and development of the gallerys collection. Adding an element of big-city sophistication, he rounds out the collection with a certain je ne sais quoi in its selection of artists. One such artist is Pat Bailey, whose whimsical oil paintings of marbles and beach balls are a colorful upbeat favorite of local residents. Mr. Baileys penchant for nostalgia captures fond memories of childhood, and clients say having one of his works in their home is immediately transporting. Billy Solitarios Blue Crab With Tattoo 2 oil painting is similarly upbeat. My opinion was to keep the mood light, so we steered away from edgy or somber. This isnt the right part of the country for moody, Ms. Dickson says. Mixing media, the Conrad Williams study of aqua hand-blown glass vases always brings positive feedback. When Ms. Dickson works with a design client, they often have pieces of their own they wish to incorporate. The welcomed challenge comes in blending the old with the new and encouraging her clients to open their mind to some new possibilities. Having EDI and J.A. Willy Gallery all under one roof makes that process, and its happy result, as productive as it does enjoyable. J.A.

BY KELLY MERRITTSpecial to Florida WeeklyConstruction at the corner of Fifth Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road has captivated Neapolitans for months. Now that The Ronto Group has debuted three models in Naples Square, prospective buyers are enjoying tours that let them see how residences in the same complex can have interiors as distinct as the personalities and lifestyles of those who inhabit them. One model is a lesson in color, with navy blue, emerald green and shades of red and orange making a splash against bright white walls, while another makes a bold statement with a completely neutral palette. In the third, creamy walls make a perfect backdrop for a combination of white and wood in furnishings and accessories. All three models in fact, all 73 residences in the Phase I building of Naples Square are sold. Under construction and set to open in early 2017, the Phase II building has 20 of its 73 residents still available for purchase. Reservations are being accepted for Phase III residences. As the market progresses we like to react to it, and as we are always looking at the design, we found some areas where we could increase sizes and add features, Rontos Anthony Solomon says about the eight floor plans that are offered in Phase III. The designs are expanded and enhanced iterations of the Phase I offerings. The Essex Renee Gaddis Interiors outfitted the spacious Essex model with an equal mix of sophistication and surprise to suit those who want to celebrate the good fortune that allows them to reside in a coastal paradise.In almost 2,500 square feet of living space, the residence has three bedrooms, an office/den, 3 baths and a laundry room. The living area, master suite and one guest bedroom all open to a 277-square-foot balcony that overlooks Naples Squares beautifully landscaped courtyard. The den, kitchen and second guest bedroom enjoy a southern exposure. In addition to the formal dining area, the island kitchen has counterheight bar seating for casual entertaining. The DenisonYoung families and grandparents with frequent visitors will be equally at home in the Denison, which has three bedrooms plus a den and three full baths in 2,264 square feet of living area. Theres more room to play (or to escape) on the balcony thats almost 300 square feet. The family room, dining room and one of the guest bedrooms open to the balcony, and the master suite has its own private balcony. Claudia Baer of Baers Furniture maintained an emphasis of relaxed comfort and livability throughout the Denison. Her design includes timeless furniture pieces with clean, midcentury lines and rich textures. The overall neutral color palette benefits from accents in coastal tones of aqua, green and blue.The ChelseaThe Chelsea is great for people who want a place in Naples and dont need anything too large, says Anthony Solomon of The Ronto Group. Perhaps theyre downsizing or they want a getaway place. The Chelsea has two bedrooms, a den and 2 baths in 1,832 square feet of living space; there is also a 214-square-foot terrace. With the downtown Naples lifestyle in mind, Christine Neal and Rachelle Porco of Robb & Stucky Furniture and Interiors brought a contemporary, eco-luxe flair to the Chelsea, combining wood, stone, cork and grass cloth with glass, chrome and stainless steel.

FEATURED STUDIO 20 LUXE LIVING APRIL 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLY BY LINDA DONNELLYSpecial to Florida WeeklyIn its 25 years in business, the Thomas Riley Artisans Guild has become synonymous with expert craftsmanship in fine woodworking, millwork and cabinetry. Fine art is a new chapter in the familys legacy. The Thomas Riley Studio, and its founder and gallerist Chad Jensen, are making a tremendous contribution to the footprint of contemporary art in Southwest Florida. As they describe their position: We are a gallery and design atelier specializing in contemporary craft, fine art and design. We have an interdisciplinary philosophy that transcends conventional models and blurs the lines of distinction. In its third season, the gallery is led by Mr. Jensens insightful curation. An accomplished artist, designer, furniture maker and self-described advocate of the arts, he graduated from the renowned College for Creative Studies in Detroit and began working with the senior Mr. Riley, Thomas, about 12 years ago. Fast becoming a member of the extended Riley family, he felt a true synergy with Matt and Ben Riley, who had also recently graduated from their schools and come into the family business at around the same time. Working in these amazing homes that were being built and/or remodeled, I realized there was nothing really in Naples to support an interest in the high contemporary art world, Mr. Jensen says. I was still pursuing my own artwork, and I was seeing that a lot of clients were coming back to us without their architects for commissioned pieces, which led to us brokering the artwork between our clients and friends. From one early client who commissioned a custom dining room table from him, he went on to do an entire project for that client that included art sales, custom furniture design and a full interior build-out. Thus, a new business model was born. He started to compile a roster of contemporary artists for a gallery, leveraging the Riley family name and reputation within the Naples community and settling in about 1,000 square feet downtown on 10th Street South, an area quickly becoming known as the Naples design district. The niche seems prime for Mr. Jensen, his taste level and his singular voice for contemporary craft and design. Hes in a class by himself with artists exclusive only to the Thomas Riley Studio. Taking on just a couple of new artists a season, the gallery now represents glass artist Jamie Harris, paper artist and engineer Matthew Shlian, Photo Fusion photographer Ysabel Lemay, oil painter Carmelo Blandino and select artful companies, including glass and crystal lighting giant Lobmeyr Lighting, and the clever, circular, expanding Capstan Tables. The gallery essentially brings artists work to the community who otherwise have zero exposure here and gives Naples residents a source for contemporary emerging, midcareer and established artists and designers from around the globe.
