A2 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 2-8, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYInvocation to a graduateMy dear J, Let me become, only for this moment, more than just a rounded and eternally grinning uncle, bald and mild and safe, communing with you at family parties by sharing a polite hug and little else but the affected murmurs of affirmation. Let me become, instead, an invocator. You will have other invocators who stand before you in funny hats and gowns at your graduation, and they will say the things that should be said to you. I will not. Since I know who you are, I also know that you can take it bad advice. Or put another way, advice to be bad. To journey to bad places, to do bad things. This is what the best people do, and I consider you one of the best. Dont say you havent been told, because Im telling you here: Be bad. I remember the first time I saw your magnificent potential to be bad, and took hope. You threw a wild tantrum at your aunts 40th birthday celebration in front of grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and various upstanding members of the community. You exploded. Your resistance to the status quo was so fierce and prolonged that you had to be carted away home by a grim and long-suffering law enforcement officer, otherwise known as a parent, caterwauling all the way like an enraged feline. Many wondered that day if you needed therapy or a drug regimen. In that instance, you demonstrated beyond a credible doubt your extraordinary potential to avoid being sucked into the maw of mere convention: of Sunday-go-tochurch niceties, of country-club manners, of sugar and spice and everything nice, of the banal and pedestrian willingness to spend life at a shopping mall and define success as (first) never truly standing out, and (second), being merely comfortable.Comfort is the enemy, J, always. Especially if its the ultimate goal. The strongest cultural current you face in this river of American life will push you ceaselessly toward the vacuous depths of mere comfort, where many drown.The same is true of mere etiquette. In itself, its an enemy draped around you without thought, like a flirty garment from Charlotte Russe, one that everybody else wears, too, or would if they could. Thats why, at your aunts recent 50th birthday soiree, I was hoping desperately that you would repeat your performance at her 40th. I wanted an encore of sorts from you, this time as an 18-year-old. You didnt offer one, sadly, because no one gave you the chance. But I noticed something promising: your potential to be bad is alive and well. I heard a parent say to you, I really dont want you to go into forensics. Once, she might have issued an imperative: You Will Not Go Into Forensics.Even so even with that wiggle room you have now established for yourself in almost everything from clothes to boys to careers you wrinkled your nose dangerously.Then somehow, without so much as moving an eyebrow or even frowning, you rearranged your face to suggest that a nuclear explosion in the 100-megaton range was not entirely out of the question. That may be the Sicilian in you, from your mothers side although you have fire (and love, w hich is often not comfortable, by the way) in you from both sides, thank God. I dont care what side it comes from, however. I dont care what corner of the genetic map, or what direction on the compass it represents. Let me encourage and this fiery potential in you to be bad. Other people, after all, may not face up to blood, which they see as bad (so they dont have to, do they?). Other people may not seek justice by analyzing the evidence of tyranny and injustice by analyzing brutalized anatomical matter, or microscopic detritus, or the characteristics of spent bullets or bomb fragments or any other trappings of crime. Other people may not be able to deal with the dark side, in other words. Its not a comfortable place. Its a very bad place, and bad places are uncomfortable. But you are not other people. You arent afraid of engaging the bad, although I dont think you underestimate it. (Please dont.) In the society that you now own as an adult American, and in the life that is now wholly and solely yours as a single woman, many other things are also considered bad by many people, especially middle-aged adults. Its bad not to always have a plan. Its bad not to always appear perfectly coiffed and made up (especially for a woman. Why is that?) Its bad to get dirty, to sweat, to define success as something more than monetary, to love somebody who isnt comfortably appointed in ambition, upbringing, religion, color, culture, career, income or family status. Its bad to show too much tolerance or compassion for those who are stupid or poor or make the wrong choices. Thats considered a knock-kneed, flower-waving weakness, and its bad. Its bad to talk about politics or religion at the dinner table, or to be rude on occasion when circumstances merit it, or to break with the rules or customs of sororities or fraternities of any kind formal or informal because you think that what theyre doing stinks, and they think you stink for thinking it. Its bad to take risks, and the naysayers are right about one thing: doing so is not only uncomfortable, but dangerous. Steve Irwin, the wildlife expert and environmentalist you admired as a young teenager, was bad to the bone and it got him killed. But so what? Should he have become an accountant or a strip mall developer or a bean counter? You know what Im going to tell you, in the end but not at your graduation party, where I will smile benignly and practice good etiquette. Be bad, J, always. Be very bad. And love, R.

The Trump-Sanders two-stepThe upshot of the Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump phenomena is that both parties are moving to the left. Sanders and Trumps styles and affects are very different the rumpled, oddball lecturer in Socialism 101 vs. the boastful, power-tie-wearing business mogul but they have worked in tandem to ensure that the center of gravity in this falls presidential election will be further to the left than it has been in decades. By seizing the initiative in their race from the beginning to what looks like an increasingly bitter end, Bernie Sanders has made Hillary Clinton, the cautious inheritor of a family political legacy built on centrism, into the mouthpiece of a watered-down version of his leftwing populism. No matter how much Bernie Sanders hates the banks, Hillary Clinton despises them just as much (past paydays notwithstanding). In effect, Sanders and Trump have executed a squeeze play on the Madam Secretary. Sanders pushed her to the left on trade and Social Security in the primary, when she disavowed the TransPacific Partnership that she helped negotiate and embraced increasing Social Security benefits. She probably wont be snapping back to the center on those issues in a general election because it would open her up to Sanders-like attacks from Donald Trump. If the grass-roots movement that Sanders has built will pressure Democrats all the way to the Philadelphia convention and beyond, Trump has arguably done more to pull the countrys politics portside. He has, for now, managed to do what the Democrats and the media have been attempting for most of the Obama era: to kill off the tea party as a national force. By dividing it, eclipsing it and making its animating concerns of limited government and constitutionalism into afterthoughts, Trump has neutered a heretofore potent vehicle against Big Government. With or without Sanders, the Democrats were going to drift in a more progressive direction. It was far from inevitable, though, that the Republican Party would de-emphasize its opposition to growth in the size of government. That is entirely the doing of Trump. The irony is that an era of Republican politics characterized by insistence on doctrinal purity and anger at Beltway dealmaking is ending with Trump at the helm of the GOP. Its a little like the agitation of the French Revolution, all aimed at achieving more liberte, egalite, fraternite, concluding in the rule of Napoleon Bonaparte. However ideologically indistinct Trump was during the primaries, he has gotten fuzzier since becoming the presumptive nominee. The lazy line on Donald Trump is that hes a far-right populist. Not at all. Hes a centrist populist. The key to moving the GOP to the center wasnt high-minded scolding about its tone and unreasonableness, as Jon Huntsman, John Kasich and Jeb Bush all attempted, but an extremely combative tone and a few signature unreasonable positions. Once Trump established his reputation as a bombthrower, it didnt matter that he was to the left of everyone else in the field. Between Sanders moving Clinton further from the center and Trump moving the GOP toward it, the socialist and the mogul have forced American politics to take a collective step to the left.

Lush greens replace the explosion of color in many a well-tended garden. The three-day weekend is the unofficial beginning of summer. My family observes the holiday traversing the miles separating our kith and kin to share a celebratory reunion. Before we are anaesthetized completely by a midday potluck, we rally and head out the door, laden with flowers to lay at the headstones of our dearly departed. We refer to the ritual as Decoration Day, a tradition southernized with fried chicken and lemon chess pie; but it began centuries earlier with mourners placing flowers on the graves of fallen warriors. The tradition began in this country before the Civil War. That terrible and bloody conflict gave it permanence. Cemeteries swollen with fresh graves were stark testimony to the biblical proportions of lives lost, North and South. Grieving wives, daughters and mothers sought in their flower gardens evidence that beauty still lived. We have since added to this ritual, public memorials to institutionalize the indelible mark left upon the nation as a whole by individuals, events and ideas. They are intended to outlast our shortlived bouquets and make permanent that which is fleeting. There are times, however, when our selective memory gives us cause to regret the rose of the lens with which we justify our commemorations. With the benefit of hindsight, the public expression of institutional gratitude may fail to stand the test of time. Thus does the harsh light of the present reveal the flaws in subjective and prejudicial thinking frozen in time. We know too much and cannot easily bask in the hyperbole preceding the historical begat of glory upon its object. A public debate commences soon thereafter. How best to re-comprise the legacy tarnished by unvarnished truth? Scales fall from our collective eyes. We see the limitations in past presumptions, mirrored as they are, from a point of view transformed by time. A wave of second thoughts sweeps the flowers out the door. We are called upon to change our minds. Changing our minds doesnt always happen, of course. For example, protesters recently demanded the name of Woodrow Wilson, the 28th U.S. president, be removed from Princetons Woodrow Wilson School of Public Policy and International Affairs, and from any other buildings on campus bearing his name including the banishment of his image from the dining hall. The reason? Wilson was a segregationist. He is believed by some to have been also keen on the Ku Klux Klan. The universitys board of trustees declined. They voted to retain Wilsons name on the schools edifices, and keep intact other evidence of Wilsons honorifics, at least for now. Christopher L. Eisgruber, the university president, said trustees had rightly reached the conclusion the best way for the university to honor the principle of diversity is not by tearing down names from the past but rather being more honest about our history, including the bad parts of our history. In other words, the debate is not over. Similar skirmishes have occurred in Florida over display of the Confederate flag on government buildings and grounds. It has been tortuous to observe public officials splitting hairs, trying to politically accommodate a fictional version of southern heritage absent slavery as the Confederate cause and fly the flag anyway, despite its racist roots. So it was surprising that earlier this year Floridas state Legislature approved legislation to replace the statue of Confederate Gen. Edmond Kirby that stands in the U.S. Capitols Statuary Hall. Each state selects two individuals for the honor and can change choices from time to time. Floridas second honoree is Dr. John Gorrie, the inventor of air conditioning. No one is contesting his hallowed status. But Gen. Kirby didnt spend much time in Florida, and he and his family were slaveholders. He took his slave, Alexander Darnes, to war as his personal valet. Alexander did everything Gen. Kirby did, without the rank, recognition or the choice of duty. But there is no statue in Statuary Hall for him. He could have been a contender. Following emancipation, Alexander had a distinguished career as Jacksonvilles first black physician. So, thanks to the legislature, and those who advocated the removal of Gen. Kirbys statue, the public now has the opportunity to make nominations of a Floridian we can all celebrate. Nominees must be native Floridians or at least 10 years a resident, worthy of the exceptional honor and have spent a decade or more moldering in the grave. For details and to submit online nominations, click on the Florida Department of State website dos.myflorida.com/ or mail nominations to the Florida Division of Historical Resources. And, sorry, you wild things, but no recommendations of fictional super heroes, animals, plants, structures, non-human entities or aliens from another planet will be considered. There is one caveat: The state Legislature gets to choose the finalist among all those nominated. Uh-oh, that. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

HURRICANE ISSUE E IS E I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I H continue but at some point the lucks going to run out and one thing we emphasize nows the time to realize hurricane seasons around the corner and to have a plan in place. CSU, known as perhaps the most accurate U.S. hurricane forecasting institution, has issued a seasonal hurricane forecast for 33 years. Its April prediction for 2016 found that we are facing an historically near average year for storm activity in the Atlantic Ocean. That includes the formation of 12 named storms five of them hurricanes, and two of those major ones (Category 3-45). (CSU was scheduled to issue updated forecasts on June 1, July 1 and Aug. 3.) There is a 30 percent chance that one of the big ones will strike the Florida peninsula and a 50 percent chance one will hit the U.S. coastline somewhere. Floridas lucky streak does little to statistically increase or decrease the chance the state will see a major storm this year. Still, it is the longest quiet period in recorded history, with records going back to 1851, said Dennis Feltgen, a meteorologist with the National Hurricane Center in Miami. The states second longest dry spell was five years, 1980 to 1984. This remarkable streak is going to end, Mr. Feltgen said. The farther we get from the last hurricane, the closer we get to the next one. Predicting the weather, especially months in advance, is a dubious undertaking with an existential dilemma at its heart: an oceanic-atmospheric system with complexities that no one can completely understand, Mr. Klotzbach points out in his report. But, he adds, it is still possible to develop a reliable statistical forecast scheme. CSUs models study how the past could reflect the future; how ocean currents such as El Nio affect storm activity each year as well as over decades long trends. The model has correctly predicted by early April above or below average seasons 79 percent of the time over more than three decades. No matter the forecast, Mr. Klotzbach points out, Coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them, and they need to prepare the same for every season, regardless of how much activity is predicted. This year, a weakening El Nio a warm Pacific Ocean current that is now starting to cool could increase storm activity while colder waters in the Atlantic Ocean could, on the other hand, slow it. The balance of these and other factors and their comparison to past years suggests an average season. The big question marks with this seasons predictions are how quickly the El Nio weakens, as well as what the configuration of sea surface temperatures will look like in the tropical and far North Atlantic Ocean during the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season, Mr. Klotzbach wrote. While the season lasts from June 1 to Nov. 30, August through October are the busiest months for producing storms.

Clean H2OThere is no escaping the fact that clean water is a must. And since systems for delivering clean water can be affected during a storm, its essential to have some kind of means to clean and filter water or have a robust supply on hand. There are numerous filtering systems available to make potable drinking water out of existing sources such as pools, sinks and bathtubs. But we found a cool product that allows one to keep an inventory of boxed water.

But since fierce storms tend to knock out electricity, having a communication device that works from another source is necessary. Hand-crank radios are ideal for times when no source of electricity is available. The Eton FRX5 is considered top shelf for its ease of use, reception and volume in its speaker, according to Crank Radio Review, an online publication. The Red Cross endorses the Eton FRX series because it has many features to help in an emergency. The radio comes with seven NOAA weather stations and SAME alerts, which provides specific alerts to the county you live in. Aside from cranking power, the Eton FRX5 can be powered via an AC adapter, USB port, batteries or the sun. For sale on a variety of websites, including Amazon. For more information, see etoncorp.com/en/productdisplay/frx5 Cost is $79.99 and up.Get wiredThe storm that you monitored on your smart phone or tablet for the last two weeks just blew through your neighborhood leaving you without power. But you are prepared; you have extra batteries and chargers to stay hooked up while the electricity remains out. But did you remember to get a rugged cable to use for hooking everything up? Tylt has durable, bright-hued cables and connectors to use for camping and emergency situations. The Syncable comes in a variety of colors. For more information, see tylt.com/syncable-duo/. The cost is up to $30.Light upStaying out of the dark during and after a storm is a necessary safety measure. There are numerous battery and solar operated flashlights and portable lanterns on the market but we chose the Bracketron Smart Lantern as a musthave for your hurricane supply kit. The portable light features a rechargeable, compact high-output LED lantern and flashlight. The device has a built-in 2.1A USB port to charge mobile devices, including smart phones and tablets. For more information, see bracketon. com/smartlantern#.VONE9zd2Psw The cost is $59.99.Generate powerMaintaining power and the functions of daily life helps smooth out the rough spots of dealing with the aftermath of a damaging storm. Having a generator that is powerful enough to keep your fridge, lights and other electronic necessities functioning while also being affordable and user friendly is key. The Champion Power Equipment 46539, 3500 Running Watts Gas Powered Portable Generator comes with wheels and a handle and a battery remote starter that works inside the home up to 80 feet away. For more information, see bestreviews. com/best-portable-generators. It can be found for sale on Amazon. Prices average $400.Disposable grillJust because the power is out doesnt mean you have to limit your diet to eating out of a can. EZ Grill disposable grills are an all-in-one disposable BBQ in a box. The kit includes a foil pan, stand, grill gate and 100 percent natural instant charcoal. The EZ Grill is composed of all natural ingredients and completely recyclable.

Live radar, 3D images pinpointing storm action will keep you safe BY ROBERT VAN WINKLENBC2 Senior Chief MeteorologistSummer is a great time to live in Southwest Florida. Year-round residents can get into almost any restaurant without hassle, drive across town without too many delays, and usually find parking at the beach! But living here in the summer does require attention to the weather. Thunderstorms, heavy rain, damaging winds and lightning are also part of our daily summer routine. And summer is also the time to pay attention to the possibility of a hurricane or a tropical storm. The storm season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30. Now is the time to think about what you would do to protect yourself, your property and your loved ones in case that one big storm comes our way. Ive often heard people say regarding the weather that living in Southwest Florida is better than living in the Midwest. Why? Because here we can track a hurricane coming, and we usually have several days to prepare. In the Midwest, tornado warnings are often issued only minutes before the storm. At NBC2 we track storms using the most powerful tool in our weather office the only LIVE Doppler Radar in this part of the state. This year, we are adding more features and upgrades to an already superior forecasting tool. You will notice the difference on your televisions and on your mobile devices. This hurricane season our graphics computer will be upgraded and present a new look for the storm forecast cone of movement. We will display an easyto-understand look at winds circulating around the storm, including the steering winds, to give you a more accurate look at where storms are going. Our suite of forecast models will continue to update you on how warm the water is, where the cyclone-inhibiting Saharan dust is located, and where conditions are primed for storm development. We are especially excited about showing you our new three-dimensional displays of approaching storms. We will pinpoint where tornadoes are possible, how much rain is falling, where wind shear is occurring even the eye of the storm will be visible. All in 3D. We will also improve our interaction with viewers by showcasing viewer photos and video from the growing world of social media. Twitter (and eventually Facebook and Instagram) will import directly to our main computers. It will be like turning everyone on Twitter into weather-watchers during a storm. Quite often the social media information provided by you is invaluable to us in the weather office. On Doppler Radar we can see where severe weather should be occurring, but visual verification posted on social media gives us the ground truth we need. We know that storms will develop this year, but the challenge during hurricane season is tracking the storms once they form. Thats what our team of meteorologists do best at NBC2 and Im confident our teams knowledge, combined with this years upgraded graphics, will not only impress you, but more importantly keep you informed and ahead of the storm. As you make your preparations, I want to leave you with a really important piece of advice: download the NBC2 Weather App. I guarantee you will be glad you have it on your mobile device when tropical weather approaches. With our free app downloaded on your phone or tablet, youll be able to track our daily afternoon thunderstorms in real-time clarity onthe-go. Youll also be able to access extras like video forecasts, analysis on trending topics with our weather blog, and access a live stream of our newscasts to watch right on your phone. Think about that. If you lose power you can still watch the news and get the latest forecast on the NBC2 Weather App. Every year I write a hurricane article and end it with the same thought: Its going to be a great summer! Relax and enjoy it. Just remember to have a plan for what you will do if a hurricane comes our way this season.

Storms on the west coast have been few since Hurricane Wilma during the 2005 season the last major hurricane to affect the Fort Myers area. But no one wants to walk down the street and see fallen trees and power lines scattered along the road, and wonder what to do next. Yet, this scenario is a reality we should prepare for during every hurricane season. Floridians know from experience that neighbors, churches and local businesses come together in unprecedented ways to help with recovery efforts. Nevertheless, weve compiled some of the contact information for the big organizations that can serve as a starting place for either volunteerism or for your own recovery once the weather system has passed. From reporting downed power lines to who to call about clean water, canned food and local shelters, these accredited contacts will help with your questions and needs.

There are six lists that continue to rotate, changing only when there is a hurricane so devastating that its name is retired.

The following precautions and checklists are meant as guidelines only. Each boat owner needs a plan unique to the type of boat, the local boating environment, the severe weather conditions likely to occur and the characteristics of safe havens and/ or plans for protection. Listen to your local Emergency Management office for specific evacuations related to boats. Do not stay aboard. Winds during any hurricane can exceed 100 mph, and tornadoes are often associated with these storms. First and foremost, protect human life. Develop a detailed plan of action to secure your vessel in the marina. If permitted, remove your boat from the threatened area, or take your boat to a previously identified hurricane refuge. Practice your plan to ensure it works. Arrange for a friend to carry out your plans if you are out of town during hurricane season. Check your lease or storage rental agreement with the marina or storage area. Know your responsibilities and liabilities as well as those of the marina. Consolidate all records, including insurance policies, a recent photo of your vessel, boat lease agreement with the marina or storage area, and telephone numbers of appropriate authorities harbor master, Coast Guard and insurance agent and keep them in your possession. Maintain an inventory of both the items removed and those left on board. Items of value should be marked so that they can be readily identified, if dispersed by the storm. When a hurricane is approaching, and after you have made anchoring or mooring provisions, remove all moveable equipment such as canvas, sails, dinghies, radios, cushions, Biminis and roller furling sails. Lash down everything you cannot remove such as tillers, wheels, booms, etc. Make sure the electrical system is cut off unless you plan to leave the boat in the water and remove the battery to eliminate the risk of fire or other damage.Trailerable boats Be sure your tow vehicle is capable of properly and adequately moving the boat. Check your trailer: tires, bearings and axle should all be in good condition. Once at a safe place, lash your boat to the trailer and place blocks between the frame members and the axle inside each wheel. Owners of lightweight boats, after consulting with the manufacturer, may wish to consider letting about half the air out of the tires, then filling the boat one-third full of water to help hold it down. (The blocks will prevent damage to the springs from the additional weight of the water.) Secure your boat with heavy lines to fixed objects. Try to pick a location that allows you to secure it from all four directions, because hurricane winds rotate and change direction. It can be tied down to screw anchors secured into the ground. Remember that trees are often blown over during a hurricane.Boats in dry storageWhen selecting a safe location, be sure to consider whether storm surge could rise into the area. Never leave a boat on davits or on a hydro-lift.Boats in wet storageThe owner of a large boat, usually one moored in a berth, has three options: Secure the boat in the marina berth. Moor the boat in a previously identified safe area. Haul the boat. Each action requires a separate strategy. Another alternative, running from the storm, is not encouraged except for large commercial vessels unless there is enough time to get your boat beyond the storms projected path.Boats at marinas Double all lines. Rig crossing spring lines fore and aft. Attach lines high on pilings to allow for tidal rise or surge. Make sure lines will not slip off pilings. Inspect pilings and choose those that seem strongest and tallest and are properly installed. The longer the dock lines, the better a boat will be at coping with high tides. It is also essential to double up on all lines and use chafe protectors at any potential chafe points. Install fenders to protect the boat from rubbing against the pier, pilings and other boats. Cover all lines at rough points to prevent chafing. Wrap with tape, rags, and rubber hoses, etc. Assess the attachment of primary cleats, winches and chocks. These should have substantial back plates and adequate stainless steel bolt sizes. Batteries should be fully charged and checked to ensure their capability to run automatic bilge pumps for the duration of the storm. Consider backup batteries. Cut off all devices consuming electricity except bilge pumps.

After so many animals were abandoned following Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and Hurricane Charley in Southwest Florida, disaster preparedness officials have stepped up measures to help pets and to encourage owners to plan ahead in case a hurricane strikes. Charlotte, Collier, Lee and Palm Beach counties all have emergency shelters for people and their pets, although space and therefore, access is largely restricted to those in spots where evacuation is mandatory. Most counties offer just one shelter to take in pets, so its important that pet owners check early and get on a reservation list if that is required. If people find they need to go to a county-run pet shelter, they will be required to stay as well and will need to care for their pets throughout the stay. Animals must be current on immunizations and have sufficient food, water and an approved crate. The best option is for people to leave the area and take their pets with them. Dont expect local veterinarians or boarding kennels to accept animals. They will fall under the same guidelines and conditions as residents. And, should a hurricane strike, they are likely to be without power as well. To prepare their pets for hurricane season, owners should attend to the following: Vaccinations: Make sure pets are current on these now. It takes a couple of weeks for most immunizations to become protective so its too late once a storm approaches. Identification: Put pets county licensing tags on their collars, as well as an ID tag with your phone number. Make sure your address and phone number is current on ID tags. A microchip ID (available through most veterinarians as well as Animal Services), is highly recommended because collars can be lost during storms but the chip will remain implanted and owners can update the company as to their whereabouts. Hurricane kit: Gather up pet supplies. (See accompanying segment) Medications: Make sure you keep a few weeks worth on hand so you wont have to rush to refill them at the last minute. Destination: Secure a place to stay.Pet hurricane kit Leash and secure collar Pet food (in waterproof containers), enough for at least one week Water for one week Manual can opener Bowls for food and water Impact-resistant crate of sufficient size (no soft-sided or homemade models and one for each pet) Bedding (blanket or towels) Litter, litter box and scoop for cats Pets regular medications Toys, chewies and other stress relievers County license and other identification (microchip IDs are encouraged) Proof of vaccinations Photo of pet Pet first-aid kit Grooming items Websites Leelostpets.com: The Lee County Domestic Animal Services site has a section dedicated to storm preparedness for pets.

If youre staying home, designate a safe room. Interior bathrooms or closets on the lowest level with no windows work best. Charge cell phones and other devices.Stay indoors. Stay away from windows even if theyre shuttered. Listen to media reports for the latest information. Stay inside even if it appears calm. Do not go out until the all-clear is given. The longest part of the process, recovery can take weeks. Move slowly and cautiously as you survey and clean up. Most injuries take place after the storm. Do not use public water until you are noti ed that it is safe. Avoid travel if possible. Do not connect generators to house wiring. Beware of downed power lines, wild animals and even domestic animals that may be frightened or lost. Take pictures of damage and contact your insurance agent.

Segregating debris is critical in assisting in the recovery. To help ensure that debris is collected in the most efficient, safe and timely manner, we recommend that you follow these simple guidelines when clearing debris from your residential property after the storm. Businesses are required to make separate arrangements for debris clean-up.Normal household garbage These are the materials and perishable items that would be placed out for collection in your weekly trash container. Normal household recyclables are dened as materials which are capable of being recycled, including newspapers, cardboard, plastic containers labeled Nos. 1 through 7 and containers made of glass, steel and aluminum. The following are not considered normal household garbage: Yard debris or trash Vegetative matter including shrubs, palm fronds, tree trimmings, grass clippings, bushes, leaves, twigs or cut up tree branches. Construction/demolition debris Materials directly relating to construction or demolition of buildings, such as cement, glass, drywall, insulation, concrete block, etc. White goods Large discarded appliances, including refrigerators, ranges, washing machines, clothes dryers, water heaters, freezers, microwave ovens, and air conditioners. All items must be empty of all contents. Do not mix the types of debris There will be separate collections for each and they will be picked up according to priority in the immediate aftermath of the storm. First priority Normal Household Garbage. Place in your regular collection cart container or in heavy duty plastic bags, and place where you would normally locate it for your regular weekly collection. Second priority Yard debris. Small quantities should be prepared as for weekly collection; in containers, bags or bundles of less than 50 pounds. Large quantities of storm related yard debris should be placed alongside the curb, with trees and branches prepared into easily manageable lengths. Do not place near lowhanging objects or around mailboxes, water meters or re hydrants. Large quantities of storm-related yard debris may be collected using a mechanical grab that will require room to operate. Collection crews will not enter private property to collect debris. Only yard debris directly generated from the storm event will be collected. Land clearing and landscape improvements are not eligible for collection. Debris from these activities will require removal and disposal to be arranged by the property owner at their expense. There will be no collection of large quantities of yard debris on private roads or in gated communities unless properties in these locations are included in a FEMA declaration or where an immediate threat to health and safety exists. Third priority Construction debris, recyclables, white goods, bulk items, electronic equipment, tires and lead acid bat-teries. You will be notified through media when collection of these items will take place. Disposal rules for small quantities of C&D materials vary by location so look for media notices for specic guidance as to how best to dispose of these materials in your respective areas. In many areas, small quantities of C&D materials (less than 2 cubic yards) may be placed at the curb alongside of normal household garbage. These materials would generally be in containers and/or bundled, weighing less than 50 pounds each and not exceeding six feet in length. These materials may be collected with the normal household garbage provided that the materials are compliant with your local collection policies and ordinances. Refrigerators, freezers and other appliances must be emptied of all contents prior to collection. Refrigerators and or freezers containing food waste or other rotting wastes will not be collected. Storm debrisAs the storm approaches and in the immediate aftermath, look for notices in the local newspapers, special bulletins on your local government website, local radio and television channels and other media. During the first 72 hours after the storm has passed, FEMA, Solid Waste Management and the Sheriffs Office will be assessing the damage and road conditions to determine when collections can resume. Recovery after the stormAfter major storms, lives can change drastically and disasters affect everyone to some extent. Relief supplies and other aid will be arriving as quickly as possible, but it may take several days. Try to remain calm, patient and understanding. Your attitude affects you and everyone around you. Remember that the longest and hardest part of dealing with a hurricane is the recovery. There may be residual flooding and roads may be blocked for days or weeks, making damaged areas inaccessible. This may mean that you will not be allowed back to your home for days or weeks. Emergency workers want your return home to be as safe as possible and need time to clear safe access and secure hazards. Listen to local media for reentry information and do not go into unsafe areas. Drive only if absolutely necessary and avoid flooded roads and washed out bridges. Do not go sightseeing. If you evacuated out of the area, consider staying away for a few extra days. Before you decide to return, consider the following: Power will be out for an undetermined period of time. This means no air conditioning, no lights, no refrigeration, no water pump and in many cases no stove. Telephone service will be out or limited. This includes 911 calling. Lack of power and damaged facilities will affect both landline telephones and cellular telephone service. Even if your phone works, use it only for emergencies. Municipal water supplies may be unsafe to drink without boiling or chemical treatment. Treat all water as unsafe until you are notified that it is safe.

Though she has had more than a dozen beautifying procedures, she had trouble finding a surgeon who would agree to take out six free-floating ribs (ones not attached to the sternum). Born in Sweden, she gave up a career as a trained electrician to come to the United States to pursue her goal of looking like a cartoon character which she has surely achieved with her now-16-inch waist.Leading economic indicatorsTriple Crown winner American Pharoah earned an estimated $8.6 million racing but, now retired, could earn as much as $35 million just by having sex. Stallions reportedly can breed into their 20s, and the horse, now barely age 4, will have 175 conquests by the end of this summer, according to a report by CNBC. One industry worker said Pharoah has put on weight, spends his spare time peaceably eating grass, and looks more like a relaxed horse. A spokesman for the Kentucky farm now housing Pharoah said he has proven to be very professional in the breeding shed.Bright ideasThe Moscow Times reported in May that bailiffs in Russias Perm region, employing originality as yet unseen in America in attempting to collect an overdue debt, arrested the debtors cat. The bailiffs listed the felines value at the equivalent of $23, and the man came up with that sum the next day and took the cat home. The Federal Bailiffs Service explained that all the other property in the apartment was in other peoples names. Shannon Egeland, 41, already convicted in 2014 of running a mortgagefraud operation during the 2004-08 realestate boom, pleaded guilty in May to the subsequent crime of deliberately having himself shot to gain his judges sympathy (and to collect on disability insurance he had purchased the week before). Scheduled to start a 10-year sentence for the 2014 conviction, Mr. Egeland told the judge he had been assaulted by gunfire when he stopped in traffic to help a pregnant woman, but in reality he had ordered his teenage son to shoot him in the legs with a 20-gauge shotgun.

The sixty students, along with Ms. Cassidy and two additional teachers, launched a beautification project at the school, making a difference in their environment while setting an example for others. It doesnt always take a grand effort to make a big impact, Ms. Cassidy says. So we thought, lets see if we can start a recycling program. TIF after school program specialist Amber Craig arranged for the students to attend a presentation by recycling specialist Dana Alger from the Collier County Department of Solid & Hazardous Waste Management. Ms. Alger explained which items can be recycled and which items cannot, and brought 100 magnets with recycling instructions. After the lesson, the students went through the school and placed the magnets on classroom doors. They knew their first step needed to involve education, since there was a good chance many students and even teachers and staff werent sure which materials were recyclable. We made posters about recycling and put them all over the school, says student Sandra Soto. The posters encouraged Recycling is good and Make the school a better place. We had to do that to change kids ways about recycling. Although there were recycling bins on the school campus, they werent being used for recycling. And if the program really took off, the students knew they would need the receptacles they had plus more. They placed more recycling containers donated by Keep Collier Beautiful on the campus and set up a schedule for collecting materials. On Mondays, eighth-graders in the Junior Career Development Program picked up the recycling. The sixth-graders had pickup duty on Tuesdays, and seventh-graders assumed the responsibility every Wednesday. They had to make about four trips (to the main recycling dumpster) each time, Ms. Cassidy says. The increase in recycling was awesome. Not all participation was flawless at first. But that gave TIF students an opportunity to work on additional leadership skills, such as persistence and followthrough. Sometimes there were wrong things in the bins and we had to sort the stuff out, Ms. Soto says. But eventually their classmates understood the program, and the right materials were going into the bins. TIF students kept their project rolling by sending out email reminders about upcoming recycling days. And it seems to have worked. More items are ending up in bins the proper ones. The school campus is cleaner, Soto said. Plans are to continue the recycling effort during the next school year as well. The Immokalee Foundations Junior Career Development Program is a version of the foundations original Career Development Program for high school students. To be a part of TIFs Junior CDP, students must apply and be interviewed. The program is competitive and it may take more than one try for students to be accepted. Once accepted, students meet with others in their grade level three afternoons a week, with the first 30 minutes spent in homework tutoring. Then the next hour is a mini-lesson that focuses on what they are learning in class, Ms. Craig says. TIFs Junior CDP teachers stay in close touch with classroom teachers to reinforce what the students are learning during the regular school day. Through the program, students enhance the professional skills necessary to become confident, productive and successful citizens. The program also provides tuition and scholarships, arranges job internship and apprenticeship positions, evaluates students career interest inventories and provides opportunities to attend career fairs. CDP students also receive mentoring, an important part of all The Immokalee Foundation programs. 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 the foundation in your estate plans, call 430-9122 or visit immokaleefoundation.org.

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 Patient Looking ahead, researchers predict vision impairment numbers to double NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHWith the youngest of the baby boomers hitting 65 by 2029, the number of people with visual impairment or blindness in the United States is expected to double to more than 8 million by 2050. The projection is based on the most recent census data and from studies funded by the National Eye Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health. Another 16.4 million Americans are expected to have difficulty seeing due to correctable refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness) that can be fixed with glasses, contacts or surgery. The researchers, led by Dr. Rohit Varma, director of the University of Southern Californias Roski Eye Institute in Los Angeles, estimate that 1 million Americans were legally blind (20/200 vision or worse) in 2015. Having 20/200 vision means that for clear vision, you would have to be 20 feet or closer to an object that a person with normal vision could see from 200 feet away. Meanwhile, 3.2 million Americans had visual impairment in 2015 meaning they had 20/40 or worse vision with best possible correction. Another 8.2 million had vision problems due to uncorrected refractive error. These findings are an important forewarning of the magnitude of vision loss to come, says Dr. Paul Sieving, director of the NEI. They suggest that there is a huge opportunity for screening efforts to identify people with correctable vision problems and early signs of eye diseases. Early detection and intervention possibly as simple as prescribing corrective lenses could go a long way toward preventing a significant proportion of avoidable vision loss, he adds. Dr. Varma and his colleagues project that over the next 35 years, the number of people with legal blindness will increase by 21 percent each decade to 2 million by 2050. Likewise, best-corrected visual impairment will grow by 25 percent each decade, doubling to 6.95 million. The greatest burden of visual impairment and blindness will affect those 80 years or older, as advanced age is a key risk factor for diseases such as age-related macular degeneration and cataract. The study was published May 19 in JAMA Ophthalmology. The researchers analyzed data on visual impairment and blindness from six large studies: the Beaver Dam Eye Study (Beaver Dam, Wis.), Baltimore Eye Survey and Salisbury Eye Evaluation Study (Maryland), the Chinese American Eye Study (Monterey Park, Cali.), the Los Angeles Latino Eye Study and Proyecto VER (Nogales and Tucson, Ariz.). They used the 2014 census and population growth projections to estimate the nationwide prevalence of vision impairment and blindness now and in 2050. In terms of absolute numbers, nonHispanic whites, particularly white women, represent the largest proportion of people affected by visual impairment and blindness, and their numbers will nearly double. By 2050, 2.15 million nonHispanic white women are expected to be visually impaired and 610,000 will be blind. Based on these data, there is a need for increased screening and interventions across all population, and especially among non-Hispanic white women, Dr. Varma says. African Americans currently account for the second highest proportion of visual impairment, but that is expected to shift to Hispanics around 2040, as the Hispanic population and particularly the number of older Hispanics continues to grow. Hispanics have particularly high rates of diabetes, which is associated with diabetic eye disease, a treatable cause of visual impairment. African Americans, meanwhile, are expected to continue to account for the second highest proportion of blindness. African Americans are at disproportionately high risk for developing glaucoma, a potentially blinding eye disease that typically causes the loss of peripheral, but not central vision, so people tend to not realize that they are losing their vision and do not seek treatment, Dr. Varma says. For more information about how to keep eyes healthy, visit nei.nih.gov/hvm. NEI leads the federal governments research on the visual system and eye diseases. The institute supports basic and clinical science programs that result in the development of sight-saving treatments and address special needs of people with vision loss. HEALTHY LIVING Palliative care needs on the rise locallyNCHs multi-disciplinary palliative care team has recently been augmented by the addition of Dr. Shirley Codada, who is board certified in hospice and palliative medicine. A multidisciplinary approach to specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses, palliative care focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms of pain as well as the physical and mental stress of their condition whatever the diagnosis. The differences between palliative and hospice care are often misunderstood. Palliative care patients do not necessarily have a limited life expectancy; they can be well cared for initially in their homes, or in outpatient settings or, when their condition becomes acute, in a hospital setting. Palliative care can be used along with treatments meant to cure. Hospices goals are similar to palliative care in keeping patients as free as possible from pain and symptoms; however, hospice only accepts patients who have a terminal illness and are likely to die within six months if the disease runs its normal course. In hospice, both the patient and family are the focus of attention. At NCH we have seen an eight-fold increase in consultations for palliative care over the past five years. More than 8.5 percent of patients admitted to our hospitals now receive a palliative care consult. Weve also increased palliative care services to non-hospitalized patients. In March, we opened a clinic-based office focused on pain and symptom management. We also are starting a weekly support group for families and caregivers of patients on our inpatient oncology unit. Our palliative care program benefits from outstanding community support, none more significant than that of Jay and Patty Baker, who sponsor palliative care both in Southwest Florida and through The Patty and Jay Baker National Palliative Care Center at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. The Bakers continued passion to help those suffering the physical and emotional burdens of a serious illness has helped NCH continue to develop our outstanding program. The sad fact in health care is that we cant cure everyone. But we can comfort all our patients. Having competent and compassionate professionals, devoted and generous community support and an unwavering desire to help every person live a longer, happier, healthier life is a neverending commitment at NCH. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org

Perhaps you can find an oasis in a meditation spiritual intensive program based on the teachings of Eckhart Tolle (The Power of Now and The Art of Presence). Registration is open for a four-week session that runs Thursday evenings, July 14-Aug. 4, at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples. The Journey of Awakening is facilitated by Naples resident Linda Allen and managed by Donna Carta. A student of Mr. Tolle for 13 years, Ms. Allen has led intensives in Wisconsin for several years and in Naples since mid-2013. She has been a student of the ancient wisdom teachings and great spiritual leaders and a practitioner of meditation for more than 40 years and blends these teachings in her own way to help others embrace awareness and presence to overcome challenges and bring deep joy into in their daily lives. Each session of The Journey of Awakening will begin with a guided meditation and will be followed by viewing a portion of a DVD of Mr. Tolles presentation in Belfast, Ireland, in which he opens his audience to the mystery of consciousness and encourages a shifting away from the deeply engrained assumption that there is something more important than this moment. The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples is at 6340 Napa Woods Way. The summer sessions meet from 6:308 p.m. Cost is $30 for all four sessions, and participation is limited to the first 50 people who sign up by July 8. No walk-ins will be accepted.

PET TALESPets eat the darnedest things BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickYour pet comes in licking his chops well before mealtime. Uh-oh. What has he gotten into? Chances are, its something thats not good for him. Last year, the Top 10 toxins ingested by pets were over-the-counter medications, medications prescribed for humans, insecticides, human foods that are toxic to pets, household items, veterinary medications, chocolate, plants, rodenticides and lawn and garden products. If you find evidence or even suspect that your pet has swallowed something that could disagree with him in a serious or fatal way, the first thing to do is take a deep breath and remain calm. Then look for empty packaging or other clues as to what he might have eaten and how much. Call the veterinarian to say that youre on your way with your pet, and why. Bring the empty or partially eaten containers, plant material or any type of label. It will help your veterinarian to know if that chocolate bar your dog ate is milk chocolate or 77 percent cocoa Belgian chocolate. Maybe its the middle of the night and you dont have a 24-hour veterinary hospital in your area. Call a pet poison hotline. Be prepared to describe packaging, labels or plant type and whether your dog or cat is conscious, alert, breathing normally and able to stand and walk. Dont induce vomiting. Its not the best way to remove toxic substances from a pets stomach, so toss out that old bottle of ipecac. Nobody recommends it anymore, for pets or kids. Instead, keep activated charcoal on hand. It acts like a sponge, absorbing whats in the stomach. Stick with plain activated charcoal, available from your drugstore or grocery store. Toxins arent always ingested by swallowing; some are absorbed through skin or fur. If your pet has a reaction to an insecticide or other substance, your first thought might be to bathe him to remove it, but its smart to check with your veterinarian or the poison control hotline first. Some products become more toxic when they get wet. If you get the go-ahead to give a bath, brush your pet first to help remove the substance from the surface of the fur. Learn about your local plants and their toxicity. Toxic plant lists dont always include regional plants. And know the origin of ornamental plants in your home or yard. Many beautiful but toxic plants come from South Africa. Among the foods that can give pets a bellyache or worse are grapes and raisins, moldy walnuts and dairy products. Although not every dog reacts to grapes or raisins, aggressive treatment is recommended because the reaction can be severe renal failure or even fatal. Give activated charcoal immediately, and take your dog to the veterinarian right away. A good course of action is IV fluid therapy for at least 48 hours and careful monitoring of blood pressure, urine output and blood chemistry values for at least 72 hours to check for kidney failure. Moldy foods cause a severe and potentially deadly neurologic syndrome. Signs including restlessness, panting, excessive salivation, tremors and seizures usually begin within 30 minutes of exposure. A dog doesnt even have to eat a moldy walnut; simply putting it in his mouth can cause problems. For the same reasons, toss the moldy cheese you found in the back of the refrigerator. Lastly, in case you were wondering, wine and other alcoholic beverages are also toxic to dogs. So remember: Its a sin to let your dog dig zin.

THE DIVA DIARIESFrom one generation to the next, Nana is always NanaLooking back on the late 1980s and through the s, I realize its amazing that my son made it through childhood relatively unscathed. Back then, I was a busy young mom working three jobs (one fulltime, two part-time), driving an old Dodge Aries that, after it had been stolen from the parking lot of the radio station where I worked and the ignition destroyed, I had to start with a flathead screwdriver. Back then, they didnt put those secure baby seat hooks in the backseats of cars, dangerous Slip n Slides were set up in every other backyard, and Im pretty sure Halloween costumes were still flammable. But, somehow our kids survived. As a 20-something, I was pretty chill about my sons well-being, but during a recent weekend in Ohio to visit him and my nearly 3-year-old grandson, Bentley, I was a frazzled bundle of nerves. If I could have put Bentley in a safety bubble, I would have. Hes a sturdy little fellow, but I treated him like a precious glass figurine that might break if the wind blew too hard. I cant tell you how many times my son exasperatedly told me, Mom, hell be FINE. While I was there I got to spend some time alone with Bentley, and when I did, I treated him like the Supreme Crown Baby Prince of the Universe. When he was barefoot in the house, I was constantly scanning the hardwood floors for splinters. When he coughed or even sniffled, I felt his head for fever and Googled the symptoms for the Zika Virus. When I took him to the (very safe) playground across the street, I hovered over him like a Secret Service agent. When another toddler almost threw sand on Bentley in the sandbox, I was between the two of them at the speed of light to protect my darling little charge. And yet, when my son was little, Id take him around on the back of my bicycle even though the belt on the baby seat was broken (Hold on to the sides! Id remind him). When he had a scuffle on the playground, Id tell him to get out of the sandbox and play on the swings instead. And when he stepped on a splinter or a sandspur, Id dig it out with tweezers and then give him a Snickers bar. As for my recent time with Bentley, I bought him all-natural organic snacks, and if he had gotten a splinter I probably would have called 911. My son laughed at me more than a few times and said, Mom, you were never like this with me and I turned out OK. I guess the difference with a grandchild is that hes someone elses child the someone you love most in the world, and theres this great weight to keeping this special piece of your childs heart safe and sound. So, my only answer for my son was, No, I wasnt this way with you. But YOUR Nana was. And to that, he could only agree. To be a good Nana, I learned from the best. Thanks, Mom. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week STEPHANIE DAVIS / FLORIDA WEEKLYBentley, the Supreme Crown Baby Prince of the Universe. stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentFLORIDIANS WERENT IMAGINING IT over the winter if they thought airports, restaurants and highways were crowded. Very crowded. Record numbers were reported across the state, from the number of visitors to Palm Beach County to the throngs of passengers coursing through two Southwest Florida airports. Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) witnessed 1,269,961 passengers troop through its airways and concourses in March. Thats an increase of 7.5 percent over the number that used the airport in March of 2015. Astonishing growth, said Bob Ball, executive director of the Lee County Port Authority. The total is roughly equal to the combined populations of Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties, which clock in at about 1,231,000, according to U.S. Census estimates from July 1, 2015. Thats not all.

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 2-8, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY (800) 246-1129 www.bluecapitalcleaning.comOf ce Cleanings | Construction Cleanup | Floor Care MONEY & INVESTINGWhat is it about the weakening yuan?Its tough to understand whats going on from an economic perspective in China these days. The primary reason for this is that the most populous nation on earth is half market driven and half centrally planned; hence, one never knows whether results are achieved because the bureaucracy forced them to occur or because market forces shaped them. This is critical to ascertain because market forces are usually real and tend to carry forward into the future, while economic conditions created by the government are often volatile and always difficult to predict. A good example of a key economic indicator being questioned by analysts all over the world is the dollar/yuan exchange rate. Last week the yuan weakened to its lowest level in five-plus years, and many analysts predict it will continue to fall in the months and years ahead. So why is the yuan falling so much, and what does that tell us about China and the global economy in general? Prior to 2015, the government maintained strict control over the yuan exchange rate. Between 2006 and 2014, it strengthened the yuan in order to stimulate domestic consumer spending and show the world that the yuan was a major currency on par with other first world currencies. Then, when the Chinese economy started to slow in 2014, the government weakened its currency to stimulate its export-driven economy. But in August 2015, the Chinese government stunned the world by announcing that it would allow market forces to begin to dictate the dollar/yuan exchange rate. Although the government would send the official rate, it would allow market forces to influence the setting. Since that time, the yuan has continued to fall. So why?Analysts in one camp believe the Chinese government is continuing to manipulate exchange rates to stimulate its manufacturing sector and prop up its economy. If true, this would mean the countrys economy is probably worse than many believe. The government still proclaims the economy is growing at 7 percent a year, but most believe the true growth rate is closer to 4 percent. If the government is still pushing down exchange rates, it could mean the economy is even weaker than that. Clearly, such a scenario would be bearish for commodity prices such as oil and steel, as the Chinese are a massive consumer of these goods.Analysts in the other camp believe the market, not the government, is pushing down the yuan. They think the Chinese government no longer wishes to spend huge amounts of its foreign reserves defending the yuan and is therefore letting market forces dictate the exchange rate. The most recent fall in the yuan, they maintain, is simply the result of investors anticipating higher U.S. interest rates and a resulting stronger dollar. If this turns out to be the case, then maybe the Chinese economy is in better shape than many believe. However, it probably also means the yuan will continue to fall going forward as market forces continue to dictate rates. This would be hard on companies such as Apple and Yum Brands that are counting on Chinese consumers to drive growth in the years ahead.Regardless of which camp is correct, I think companies must count on the yuan falling in the years ahead. With many expecting the Fed to raise interest rates in the next few months, it seems we will have a scenario where the dollar continues to strengthen against almost every other currency in the world, especially those in Asia. While this will make imports cheaper here in the U.S., it will put further pressure on our manufacturers and exporters.Given this is an election year, I have a funny feeling we will be hearing a lot more about this in the months ahead.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 2-8, 2016 BUSINESS B5 I trace my history back to 2000, when I began with an electronic security-trading platform. Over time, I added various exchanges, offering customers automation and efficiency. I now encompass 11 exchanges, including the venerable New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), which began back in 1792. More than 12,000 securities and contracts (such as futures) are listed on my exchanges (including about 78 percent of the S&P 500 companies), and my daily trade volume averages more than 9 million. The market value of the companies listed on the NYSE is about $25 trillion, making me kind of important. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Warren Buffett vs. Hedge FundsSuperinvestors Warren Buffett and his business partner, Charlie Munger, recently presided over their Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting in Omaha, Nebraska, answering dozens of questions from shareholders, journalists and stock analysts for more than five hours. Buffett took particular pleasure in updating the crowd on a 10-year bet he made in 2007 with folks at the Protege Partners hedge fund. He wagered that over a decade, the S&P 500, a passive index, would outperform a group of five hedge funds handpicked by Protege. (The loser will contribute $1 million to a charity of the winners choice.) He has been updating shareholders annually on the bets progress. This year, he shared the results so far: The group of hedge funds are up a cumulative 22 percent, while the S&P 500 has advanced close to 66 percent. To be fair, Buffett noted that the hedge funds, which typically collect a 2 percent annual fee and 20 percent of all profits, havent done so poorly, though their investors have paid a big price: Theres been far, far, far more money made by people in Wall Street through salesmanship abilities than through investment abilities. Buffett went on to discuss the situation further, using the example of two investment managers employed by Berkshire Hathaway, Todd Combs and Ted Weschler. They each manage $9 billion of the companys money, and Buffett noted that if they were compensated as hedge fund managers typically are, theyd be getting $180 million each merely for breathing.Buffetts advice for those of us who arent investing experts is simple: As he wrote in his 1993 annual letter to shareholders: By periodically investing in an index fund... the know-nothing investor can actually outperform most investment professionals. Paradoxically, when dumb money acknowledges its limitations, it ceases to be dumb.Theres much more to learn about money, investing and life from Buffett. Read his annual letters to shareholders at berkshirehathaway.com. Roger Lowensteins book, Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist (Random House, $19) is an excellent read, too. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Berkshire Hathaway.) Glazed OverMy dumbest investment? I took a financial class in college, looked at the Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Corp., and then invested $5,000 in it. I didnt think twice about its rapid expansion plans or how it was diversifying by buying a bread company. I watched my shares go from around $40 per share to below $5. I should have diversified better, myself. C.D., onlineThe Fool Responds: It has been a volatile ride indeed for Krispy Kreme investors. Those who invested early, when the company that was founded in 1937 went public in 2000, have seen their investment average just a few percent gain annually over 16 years, while those who picked up shares five years ago have enjoyed an average annual gain topping 25 percent. Its fair for a company to try to expand geographically, but Krispy Kreme faced stiff competition in the Northeast from Dunkin Donuts, and struggled. It has since expanded successfully, especially internationally sporting more than 1,000 stores today in 26 countries. Its shares are being taken private, too, as the company is being acquired by German private equity company JAB Holdings (whose empire also includes Keurig Green Mountain, Caribou Coffee and Peets Coffee & Tea). Krispy Kremes stock price has surged to close to $50 per share and plunged to nearly $1. Youre right that its smart to have a diversified portfolio, lest any single holding plunge and devastate it. A Linked-in FutureLinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD) is the worlds largest professional social network, with more than 430 million members in 200 countries and territories. Shares have fallen about 50 percent from their 52-week high, in part due to a weak earnings report and outlook several months ago. But the companys latest earnings report is heartening, and investors willing to wait for years may be well rewarded.LinkedIns last quarter featured revenue up 35 percent year over year, with membership growing by 19 percent and member page views surging by 34 percent. Recruiters are increasingly using LinkedIn, and management notes, increased member engagement with jobs is already delivering a stronger pipeline of potential candidates to our existing customers. Members are welcoming the newly redesigned mobile app as well, which was launched late last year.The market for online professional services is set to grow briskly, and LinkedIn has positioned itself ideally as the go-to resource within this space. The companys executive team estimates that its overall market potential is $115 billion, well north of the $3 billion LinkedIn generated in fiscal 2015.LinkedIns annual average growth rate over the next five years is estimated to be around 27 percent, suggesting that it may be reasonably to attractively priced for long-term investors who can handle a bumpy ride. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended LinkedIn.) I trace my roots back to the 1899 founding of the Reading Glove and Mitten Manufacturing Co. in Pennsylvan ia. I later made silk lingerie and changed my name to reflect it. I sold my intimates business and am now a global clothing and footwear titan, with brands that include The North Face, Vans, Wrangler, Lee, Timberland, Bulwark, Eagle Creek, Eastpak, Ella Moss, JanSport, Kipling, lucy, Majestic, Napapijri, Nautica, Red Kap, Reef, Riders and SmartWool.

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 2-8, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYPalm Beach County was also hopping in the past year. Although tourism statistics for the first quarter of 2016 were not available as Florida Weekly prepared this story, the numbers for 2015 were released in February. A record of 6.9 million visitors came to the county last year, according to Discover the Palm Beaches, the tourism and marketing corporation for Palm Beach County. That was a 10 percent increase over 2014. Which dramatically surpassed all our previous forecasts, Jorge Pesquera, the president and CEO of Discover the Palm Beaches, said in a February news release. Mr. Pesquera added that 2015 was the fifth consecutive year of record-breaking tourism. Records toppled on both coasts. The Punta Gorda Airport reported that 91,101 people traveled through its gates in April. Thats a 31 percent increase over April of 2015. That 91,101 total is more than five times Punta Gordas estimated population of 17,000 flocking through the airport in a month. How much of a change is this airline traffic for Punta Gorda? Eight years ago we didnt have airline service, airport director Gary Quill said. The airport has one carrier, Allegiant Air, which connects Punta Gorda to 30 smaller cities, places such as Allentown, Pa. and Grand Rapids, Mich., and Toledo, Ohio. The addition of Allegiant has helped boost tourism in Charlotte County and linked it directly to numerous markets. Lorah Steiner, the director of the Charlotte Harbor Visitor & Convention Bureau, said she expects Allegiant to soon add to its Punta Gorda list of connections with Cincinnati and Rockford, Ill. While RSW typically experiences a dip in traffic over the summer, Ms. Steiner said July is one of the busiest months at the Punta Gorda Airport because of residents flying north to escape the heat. Charlotte County enjoyed a good winter and Ms. Steiner expects to have more good tourism news to report soon. I think well see a good summer, Ms. Steiner said. While the Lee and Charlotte county airports were reporting booming passenger traffic, that same metric doesnt apply at Naples Municipal Airport. And thats for a simple reason: The Naples airport is devoted almost entirely to general aviation. Its only commercial service is through Elite Airways, which just began operating out of the airport in February. Although Southwest Floridas two primary commercial aviation airports recorded record numbers recently, tourism numbers were down slightly on the west coast this past season. Tourism officials in Lee, Collier and Charlotte pointed out that although down slightly the statistics are being compared to recordbreaking visitor totals in recent winters. The number of visitors staying in Lee County hotels this past season was down 6.7 percent over 2015, declining from 776,164 to 724,071, according to a report from the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau. The number staying with friends was down 2.4 percent, dipping from 621,792 to 606,576. Thats something of a mixed bag, said Tamara Pigott, executive director of the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau. It can be deceiving. Although down from last year it was still a good season, Ms. Pigott believes. There was also a corresponding dip in estimated spending from $1.16 billion to $1.13 billion. The visitors who came, though, have money to spend. The average household income of visitors to Lee County is $101,200. Its even higher in Collier County, according to Jack Wert, the executive director of the Naples, Marco Island, Everglades Convention and Visitors Bureau. He pegged the average household income for Collier County visitors at over $150,000. Mr. Werts office reported a similar dip in visitors to what was reported in Lee. In March, despite increased traffic at the airport, people staying in what the Collier County report terms commercial lodgings fell 2.1 percent from last year. How is it possible that the number of passengers flowing through airports is up but tourism visitors are down? Mr. Wert offered a simple explanation. A lot of business travelers and our own residents using that airport, Mr. Wert said. Hes not allowing the 2016 statistics showing a slight dip to ruffle his demeanor. It would have been difficult to duplicate or exceed 2015. It was the best season on record, Mr. Wert said. He added that although the number of visitors dipped slightly, spending is still up. The Collier County tourism report noted that direct expenditures by visitors both year-to-year and comparing March of 2016 to March of 2015 were up. In the first three months of 2015, Collier County visitors spent roughly $490 million. This year that number inched up to a little more than $495.6 million. Thats up virtually 1.5 percent. The same was true for March, which saw the spending increase this year to $313.4 million from $309 million last year, a bump of 1.5 percent. The restaurants were full, Mr. Wert said. Tourism officials throughout Southwest Florida attributed the dip to a number of factors such as a mild winter up North, a rainy winter here and releases from Lake Okeechobee that sullied the Caloosahatchee, estuaries and other bodies of water. The early part of the year was a little rocky, Ms. Pigott said. Tourists and residents alike endured an extraordinarily wet January that may have kept some potential visitors away. Fort Myers received a January record 12.98 inches of rain. The normal January rainfall in Fort Myers is 1.93 inches. A positive trend for Southwest Florida tourism continues to be international travel. Were getting the benefit of a lot of Europeans, Mr. Ball said. Indeed, nearly 35,000 Germans and nearly 35,000 from the United Kingdom visited Lee County over the winter, according to the visitor profile dated May 12. In March alone, Collier County had 32,040 European visitors, an increase of 4.5 percent from 30,672 in 2015. The airports and tourism, the beaches, golf courses, attractions, warm winter weather and airplanes have an economic connection. Mr. Ball pointed out that RSW is an important part of Southwest Floridas economy. The economy couldnt stand alone with tourism and home building, he said. RSWs passenger growth is detailed on the airports website, flylcpa.com. In March 2006, 997,869 passengers traveled through the airport. In 1996, it was 600,771. So the March number has more than doubled in 20 years. What we call the new terminal is now 10 years old, Mr. Ball said, referring to the facility that opened in 2006. Mr. Ball said airport officials are rethinking their plans to accommodate more passenger traffic. Were pulling the throttle back on runway projects, he explained. Next up might be, he said, a $50 million new control tower. Increasing the number of gates from 28 to 35 is another possibility, he added. That would be good news for tourism officials. The airport is integral to our efforts, Ms. Pigott said. The same is true in Collier County, where 72.7 percent of its visitors flew to Florida and of those 66.2 percent flew into RSW. More than a tenth (11.9 percent) visited Collier County after flying into Miami International Airport. The hum of season has quieted for now, but regular air travelers through RSW such as Fort Myers resident Ellen Giffen recall what it was like in March and what it was like in May.I remember it being busy, Ms. Giffen said. Now its not busy at all. If the traffic patterns of recent years holds true in 2016, June, July, August and September will see fewer than 500,000 passengers per month at RSW. Then, come October, the crowds will start returning again, by the hundreds of thousands.

HONORSFrom page 11The median age and years of experience among Realtors has decreased as new and younger professionals enter the industry, according to the 2016 National Association of Realtors Member Profile. NAR member account for about half of all active real estate licensees in the U.S. The typical member reported a median of 10 years of experience in real estate, down from 12 years in last years report. Members median age also decreased, from 57 in 2014 to 53 in 2015, the lowest it has been since 2008 when the median age was 52. NAR President Tom Salomone, broker-owner of Real Estate II Inc. in Coral Springs, says 20 percent of the most recent survey respondents reported one year or less of experience in the industry. In the previous years report, 41 percent of members were more than 60 years old, while only 2 percent were under age 30. This year, the percent of members over 60 years old dropped to 30 percent, and the number of those younger than 30 years rose to 5 percent. Thirteen percent of members who have two years or less experience are under 30 years of age. New members also tend to be more diverse than experienced members; 89 percent of Realtors with 16 or more years of experience are white, compared to only 78 percent of those with two years or less experience. The median gross income of Realtors also fell last year, from $45,800 in 2014 to $39,200 in 2015; not surprising, Mr. Salomone says, given member income typically corresponds with experience. Those with 16 years or more of experience reported a median gross income of $73,400, up from $68,800 in 2014, while members with two years or less of experience had a median gross income of $8,500, a decrease from $9,100 last year. The typical Realtor reported working 40 hours per week in 2015, in line with previous years. Sixty-seven percent of members specialize in residential brokerage, down from 82 percent. The most popular secondary specialization is relocation (17 percent) and residential property management (16 percent). This year marks the first time members were asked about the use of drones in their business. While 56 percent of members say they do not currently use drones, 18 percent indicated that they plan to in the future. Twelve percent reported that someone in their office uses drones. When it comes to technology 93 percent say their firm has a web presence. When communicating with clients, members say that email, telephone, and text messaging are used most frequently. Seventy percent of members report using social media, an increase from 65 percent last year. Many Realtors have had careers in other fields before entering real estate. The most common first careers reported are in management, business or finance, or sales and retail, both at 16 percent. Only 4 percent of members indicate that real estate was their first career. Also in line with last years survey, 62 percent of all Realtors in this years profile are female. Among broker licensees, 56 percent are female, compared with sales agent licensees, where 66 percent are female. More than eight out of 10 Realtors own their primary residence. However, that number increases with age; the homeownership rate for Realtors 60 and older is more than 90 percent. Thirty-one percent of Realtors own residential property for investment, and 9 percent report owning at least one commercial property. Ninety-three percent of Realtors have some post-secondary education, with 30 percent having completed a bachelors degree and 12 percent having completed a graduate degree. Realtors are also active in the political process, with 94 percent reporting they are registered to vote and 89 percent indicating they voted in the last national election and 77 percent in their local elections. The 2016 National Association of Realtors Member Profile is based on a survey of 150,024 members, which generated 10,194 usable responses. For more information, visit realtor.org.

Touchstone. 352 pages. Hardcover, $24.99.If youve never been to The Hollows the Upstate New York community that passes for normal while hiding its truly haunted nature then youre in for a big surprise with the newest offering from Lisa Unger. Restless spirits fester in The Hollows. They cry out for recognition. They have stories to share. In time of trouble, residents and visitors may sense that theres something strange going on, some kind of invisible force. There seem to be voices, sometimes cries, in the wind. There are people who are sensitive to the spirit world, whether they wish to be or not. These same people have psychic powers that grant them glimpses of the future and/ or of the hidden past. They are called upon by the spirits. Eloise Montgomery has lived among the haunted, and among the rest of us, for her whole life: Eloise told her (granddaughter Finley) long ago that a haunting was a relationship, that the dead clung to the living only as much as the living clung to the dead. Finley Montgomery, a 20-year-old student at the local Sacred Heart College, also has this power, and sometimes the spirit voices and her strange dreams overwhelm her. Only Eloise is able to help her and she will need all the help she can get to avoid being pulled under by what she must confront. There is a long history of children who have gone missing in The Hollow. For almost a year, Merri Gleason has tried to find her daughter Abbey. She feels that if Abbey is not already dead, she soon will be if shes not found. So Merri contacts Jones Cooper, a former police officer now working as a private detective. Though Jones is a down-to-earth guy, a man of facts, he is open to the paranormal. On the right kind of case he will consult with Eloise. Finding Abbey is one such case. Its a case that cant help but suck fiercely tattooed Finley into it, much to her peril. Ms. Unger orchestrates her gripping, eerie novel so that readers alternate among several plot strands, trying to guess if and how they will come together. Tracking down Abbey is one strand. Witnessing the imprisonment and attempted escapes of a young girl called Penny is another. Readers are teased with the idea that Penny might not be this girls actual name by the introduction of another girl referred to as Real Penny. Perhaps the one we meet is a replacement for one who fled or died. And perhaps there are others who have also been called Penny. The one we meet, and the original one, both seem to have psychic powers as well. Like Finley and Eloise, they see and hear what others cannot. They discover things that are meant to be kept secret. The grotesque Crawley family that has captured these young girls, about which the author draws a ghastly family portrait, cannot let certain truths come out. We wonder if Merris daughter Abbey has turned into a Penny. Portraying people who are under enormous, threatening stress is this authors game or at least one of her games. Her brilliantly suggestive and graceful prose allows us to share and somehow be magnetized by her characters fear and desperation. Even those with unusual powers, like Finley, can be ravaged by emotional turmoil. Because they are called to hear and respond to the almost-stifled voices of the dead, they must stretch their courage to the breaking point. Of course there are deadly secrets that must be discovered, even after they have done their damage. Ink and Bone holds tantalizing insights about how identities are formed and the role of family dynamics in that formation. Then theres environment. Dont raise your children in The Hollows. The place literally has a mind of its own. About the authorThe suspense never subsides in Ms. Ungers psychological thrillers; it keeps mounting stronger and stronger, as does her already immense talent. She lives in Clearwater with her husband and daughter. Her novels have sold more than 2 million copies and have been translated into 26 languages. Find out more at lisaunger.com.

Weird Al Yankovic is giving fans his own version of summer re-runs this year, taking his Mandatory World Tour back out for the second straight year. It comes to the Barbara B. Mann Hall in Fort Myers on Sunday, June 5. Were still promoting the material from (his 2014 album) Mandatory Fun, and there are also all the greatest hits that people expect to hear, Mr. Yankovic says about the show that essentially remains the same. If there were ever a time in his 35-year career that he could justify bringing the same show back for another extensive run through the states, its now. The Mandatory World Tour is the biggest and best weve done yet, he says. The crowds keep getting bigger and the energy keeps building. Were giving it everything weve got every single night. Mr. Yankovic, who got his big break in 1980 after his parodies of the Knack hit My Sharona (retitled My Bologna) and Queens Another One Bites the Dust (Another One Rides The Bus) aired on the Dr. Demento radio program, is up to his usual tricks on Mandatory Fun. He turns Pharrells mega-hit Happy into Tacky for an encyclopedic run-through of all sorts of less-thancool behaviors. Robin Thickes Blurred Lines becomes Word Crimes, an examination of grammatical missteps thats both funny and a bit educational. And Lordes Royals is re-imagined as Foil, which somehow evolves from a lesson on expert handling of leftovers into a tale of conspiracy theories. He still sounds amazed at what he has achieved with his 14th album. When it was released in July 2014, Mandatory Fun became the first comedy album ever to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard magazine album chart (it also the 2015 Grammy for Best Comedy Album). I never in my wildest dreams expected my album to debut at No. 1, he says. That had never happened before. I always thought there was a bit of a glass ceiling for comedy albums. What might be even more impressive is that Mr. Yankovic has sold more albums than any comedian more than George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Bill Cosby, Robin Williams or even Bob Hope. I have no real reason or explanation for that, he says. I mean, there was a certain period of time, in the 1980s and s particularly, where the record industry was doing extremely well, so I wound up selling a lot of records during that period. Certainly MTV was a big help during those same years But yeah, its inconceivable to me that Ive sold more albums than my heroes.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 2-8, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY mertime months of June through early September. Prices for hotel rooms between Christmas and Easter may strike some as eyewateringly high, so the good news for Floridians looking to beat the heat and drive down for a breezy weekend on the ocean is that while hotel occupancy during summertime may be booming, the prices are much lower. That means theres still plenty to do from festivals to fishing tournaments, theres something happening virtually every week in the Keys but at a walletfriendly rate that will have you rounding up the family, gassing up the minivan and hitting the road before you can say Key Lime Festival. (For the record, its on June 30, and trust us: youre not going to want to miss it this year.) June is an exciting month in the Keys, stocked with fishing tournaments, ecotourism, and a few reliably kooky Key West events that draw shockingly large crowds to such a small island. (To keep visitors abreast of whats going on, the Monroe County Tourist Development Commission actively updates its website calendar with summertime events throughout the Keys. To keep up with all the events those listed here and others see fla-keys.com.) We suggest starting your month on a moral note by participating in Key Largos Coralpalooza, an internationally celebrated event whose goal is to promote awareness of the worlds delicate coral reef systems. Coinciding with World Oceans Day, Coralpalooza begins June 3, and offers certified divers the opportunity to participate (for free) in the out planting and monitoring of both new and existing coral colonies. Normally closed to outsiders, divers will get a firsthand glimpse at what the Coral Restoration Foundation is doing to protect the Keys incredible barrier reef, the third largest in the world, and the only one in the Continental United States. Once youve done your part to save the ocean, have some fun chasing some of its most wily inhabitants around the waters off Islamorada at the Don Hawley Invitational Tarpon Tournament. The tournament, begun in 1975, has the honor of being the first to stop the killing of tarpon, setting a trend for catch-and-release tournaments for years to come. If youd rather watch engines cut through the water than fins, make your way south to Marathons 2nd annual Super Boat Grand Prix, where beginning on June 24, visitors can gawk at some of the biggest and baddest boats in the ocean. While some might argue that Key West shows its pride every day (the city recently supervised the permanent installation of a few rainbow-colored crosswalks on its heavily trafficked Duval Street), those looking to celebrate under more official guidelines should head to Pride Week, June 8-12. An island famous for its open and inclusive atmosphere thanks to its One Human Family philosophy, Key Wests 2016 Pridefest will offer pageants, special exhibits, street fairs, parades, drag contests, themed parties, tea parties, and of course, a chance to party at the infamous Hot Naked Sundays Pool Party (ladies need not apply.) Begin the month of July on a sweet and sour note at the fourth annual Key Lime Festival in Key West, billed as Americas favorite citrus celebration. Featuring favorites such as the Key Lime Cocktail Sip & Stroll, where 15 bars compete for the honor of Best Key Lime Cocktail, and the Mile High Key Lime Pie Eatin Contest (selfexplanatory), this event is an enthusiastic and eccentric celebration of one tiny little citrus and the giant community who will gather to celebrate the general wackiness it has come to represent. Pie-haters, youve been warned. Of course, knowing your options for viewing fireworks on the Fourth is important for anyone planning to travel through the Keys during early July; those who find themselves in Key Largo should look no further than Blackwater Sound. The mirror-like surface of the bayfront is perfect for reflecting the fireworks above, making the spectacle dazzlingly immersive for those seated anywhere bayside around mile marker 104. A bit farther south, Marathon Key offers the largest and longest fireworks celebration in the Keys, as well as a full day of activities that include free entry to Sombrero Beach. Bring your boat if you can each year, hundreds of ships line up along the shore to watch the fireworks, creating a truly unique experience for boaters. In Islamorada, July means an opportunity for younger anglers to get their first taste of the tournament life, when the Islamorada Summer Classic kicks off July 8. Open to adults as well as teens and junior anglers, its a family-friendly event that offers a large array of target backcountry species to fish. On July 9, be sure to make your way to Big Pine Key, where the annual Underwater Music Festival begins at 10 a.m. at Looe Key Reef. This nationally acclaimed event is fun for the whole family. During the concert, music is broadcast underwater via speakers suspended beneath boats perched above the reef. Costumes encouraged, whale songs optional. The 16th annual Del Brown Permit Fishing Tournament opens July 11 in Key West, and honors the late fishing pioneer known for catching (and releasing) over 500 permit off the Keys using a specially designed fly called the Merkin. This flats and fly tournament reveres the traditional method of fly rod fishing: no chumming, no scenttipping, and no flies other than singlehooks. Permit fishing is something of an obsession for many in the Keys these KEYSFrom page 1ROB ONEAL / FLORIDA KEYS NEWS BUREAUChefs Paul Menta, left, and Jim Brush, right, measure a giant Key lime pie in 2014.

He loved to fish, but he may have loved to drink even more. In any case, celebrate Hemingway the Key West way during Hemingway Days, now in its 36th year. The festival begins July 20. The highlight is undoubtedly its now-famous Papa Lookalike Contest, a gathering place for burly old white men who have spent months cultivating their snowy beards. Theres also a literary competition, special exhibits and talks, the oldest ongoing 5K in Key West, a marlin fishing tournament, and a Running of the Bulls, the only opportunity youll ever have to see a horde of Hemingway doppelgngers run from the authors favorite drinking hole, Sloppy Jones, down the length of Duval Street. Theres also an arm-wrestling contest, because, well its Hemingway. Every July, lobster hunters flood the Keys for a special two-day mini-season of legal lobstering. The only opportunity to hunt for spinies before the regular season opens in August, mini-season is a kind of frenzied dash below the surface that attracts hundreds of lobster fanatics (along with many brave newbies looking for a taste of the mania), many of whom line up in preparation for the strict 12:01 a.m. start time on Wednesday, July 27. Participants dont have long to hunt; mini-season ends at midnight on Thursday, July 28. A note to newcomers: laughing at the phrase get your tickle stick ready will automatically reveal you to be an obvious amateur. After the official season has begun in August, lobster fans will want to make sure theyre present for Key Wests annual Lobsterfest, which kicks off on Aug. 11 with a traditional lobster boil. For $27.99 you can get over a pound of lobster, shrimp, andouille sausage, crawfish, sweet corn on the cob and new potatoes. The following night, join hundreds of invertebrate-eating enthusiasts as they wind their way down Duval enjoying drink specials during the Lobsterfest Duval Crawl. The full festival lineup includes concerts, street fairs and sumptuous lobster specials throughout town. If youre less inclined to travel south for lobsters than you are for Adonis-looking men, youre probably the target audience for Tropical Heat Key West, an all-male themed celebration brought to you by the Key West Business Guild, a nonprofit organization devoted to promoting Key West to LGBTA travelers. Tropical Heat promises clothing-optional parties, guys-only sunset sails and snorkel trips, drag performances, gay history-focused trolley tours and more. The full event list is still being formed, so keep an eye out for new additions. If you didnt get your fill of white-bearded cultural icons, youll probably want to book a ticket to one of the two shows Leon Russell will be playing at the Key West Theatre July 20-21. Russells versatile six-decade career in music has included collaborations with hundreds of historys greatest musicians, including Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Frank Sinatra, The Rolling Stones, Willie Nelson and George Harrison. Other performers swinging through the newly revamped Key West Theatre this summer include s darlings the Gin Blossoms, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and the Grammy Award-winning Robert Cray Band. While gay gentlemen are the target audience of Augusts Tropical Heat celebration in Key West, Sept. 7 marks the beginning of the decidedly sapphic Key West Womenfest, a weeks worth of lesbian and allyfriendly events stretched over Labor Day weekend. Join thousands of women who journey to Key West each year to celebrate with pool parties, culinary activities, dances, tours and many more uniquely Key West events. Of course, sometimes the best reason to head down to the Keys in the summer is simple: the pleasure of relaxing oceanside with a cold drink, a night of bar-hopping or book-reading stretched ahead of you (Key West recently acquired an excellent bookstore.) Some of the Keys most beloved tourist destinations swimming with dolphins in Marathon, learning to tack your first sailboat alongside your kids at the Key West Community Sailing Center, snorkeling the sunken wreckages of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Shipwreck Trail, visiting the multitude of historic museums spread throughout the island chain, skydiving over the reef off Sugarloaf Key, or the pure joy of a nightly sunset celebration in Mallory Square are available to visitors year-round, but often with reduced ticket prices and crowds in the summer.

C8 WEEK OF JUNE 2-8, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ESOPHAGEAL CANCER LINKED TO GUM DISEASECancer is not one disease. It is, instead, a group of diseases with a variety of dierent causes and treatments. As researchers delve into the many possible causative factors, they uncover information that may seem unlikely and surprising. One such discovery recently came to light when researchers found that a bacterium (Porphyromonas gingivalis) that contributes to gum disease was present in nearly two-thirds (61 percent) of the cancerous tissue samples taken from patients with esophageal cancer. is type of cancer begins in the tube that moves food from the throat into the stomach. It is dicult to diagnose in its early stages, and usually progresses rapidly. e hope is that treating gum disease may help prevent its occurrence. P.S. If it is proven that P. gingivalis actually causes esophageal cancer, a dental exam may become a screening tool for the disease. George M.

Mr. Jones is an actor well known to local audiences as well as a business columnist, marketing/PR consultant and motivational speaker. The most important issue is getting students on their feet in front of others, he explains. Though there are certainly specific techniques to successful public speaking, my emphasis is on helping each speaker reach a new comfort level by discovering and expressing their authentic selves in front of an audience. In addition to a variety of on-yourfeet exercises, the workshop will include a group exploration of the recently released Ted Talks book by Chris Anderson. The curriculum will also include lessons learned from Joness time spent with high-profile public speakers including Erin Brockovich, James Carville, Barbara Corcoran, Jeffrey Hayzlett, Mary Matalin, Suze Orman, Bob Orr, Peggy Post and the late Peter Thomas. Cost of the class ranges from $124 to $140 for members of The Naples Players and is $200 for others. Purchase of Ted Talks is also required.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 2-8, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYStayin alive through hot flashes, insomnia and disappearing jawlinesMenopause: The Musical is exactly what it sounds like: a schlocky show about the horrors and difficulties of going through The Change (technically, its perimenopause, as menopause means you are officially done with the whole damn thing). It played at the Broadway Palm Theatre a few years ago and is back by popular demand. I hated it, however until about halfway through when, despite myself, I laughed. Then I laughed again. I started enjoying it in spots. I was surprised. And confused. This show is extremely contrived. Four women of a certain age, all from different backgrounds and professions, meet while shopping for lingerie in Bloomingdales. For the next 90 minutes, they sing songs about hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, memory failures, thickening waistlines, disappearing jawlines, fluctuating emotions, heavier thighs and weaker bladders. Can you imagine men flocking to a musical about beer guts, thinning hair, balding, excessive ear and nose hair, enlarged prostates, weak bladder control and erectile dysfunction? I know this is a generalization, but I think men tend to want to Ignore It All while women want to Discuss It All. While over-sharing can be a tiresome thing, there is a certain relief in hearing previously verboten subjects discussed, or at least acknowledged, in public. Misery enjoys company, and all that. Jeanie Linders wrote the book and lyrics, setting everything to the tunes of popular songs from the 1960s and 0s. That was part of my major frustration: These songs are classics that should not be tampered with; it is especially egregious that the original, well-known lyrics are replaced with mundane, cutesy ones. The show begins with a bastardized version of Aretha Franklins Chain of Fools. The women sing, Change, change, change/Change of life. It gets worse. Stayin Alive becomes Stayin Awake, a song about insomnia, and Night Fever turns into Night Sweatin. If this makes you groan, Menopause: The Musical is not for you. But if just reading these new words to favorite old tunes makes you laugh, then youll probably enjoy the show. The audience did laugh a lot, but I think it was laughter provoked by recognition of and identification with the subject matter, more than by the cleverness of the playwright. During the disco numbers there are the obligatory Travolta-esque moves of diagonally stabbing the sky and continually repeating the motion, as if youre calling on an elevator that will never arrive. This joke ceased to be funny back in the s. The Lion Sleeps Tonight turns into a number about how husbands flee the marital bed because of their wives night sweats. In the guest room or on the sofa, my husband sleeps at night, they sing. (I did laugh, though, when instead of wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh, the women sing, Shes a witch and shes a witch/Shes a bitch and shes a bitch. I think I would have appreciated a more over-the-top approach to the entire subject. Remember those outlandish costumes in Mel Brooks The Producers? What if this show had approached menopause that way? Imagine women in dancing tampon costumes, or dressed as giant-sized boxes of sleep aids, maybe tap-dancing up a storm. Something so crazy and absurd you just have to laugh. Or, presenting hot flashes as a neverending trip through Hell (maybe even meeting a couple of those dancing coffee cups from The Book of Mormon, as caffeine is supposed to exacerbate hot flashes). The women in Menopause: The Musical are: Professional Woman (Whitney Hayes), Soap Star (Sarah Hayes, no relation to Whitney), Earth Mother (Megan Opalinski) and Iowa Housewife (Donnalynn Waller). Whitney Hayes and Ms. Waller are the stronger actors of the quartet and provide most of the laughs, managing to surpass their characters stereotypes and give us real women. Sarah Hayes daytime drama star fears shes losing her looks. Now that shes older, shes definitely losing roles to upand-coming 20-something ingnues. But she totally surprised me when she slinked through the audience and sang a sultry song. It was her characters highlight. Ms. Opalinski possibly has the most thankless role of the four: Like making fun of disco moves, this Earth Mother-type of character in flowing skirt and beads who likes to meditate is a clich that should have been retired decades ago. Whitney Hayes is strong and personable as Professional Woman; her character is someone Id actually like to hang out with. She brought down the house with Im Flashing, (sung to Patsy Clines Im Sorry), coming off-stage into the audience and even splashing herself with water from a patrons glass. And later in the show, wearing a Tina Turner wig and black leather, she performs Whats Love Got to Do With It? with vocal inflections and moves that are on-target and unmistakably Turner-esque. Ms. Waller, as the zaftig Iowa Housewife, is a definite audience favorite, too. Playing her role without once resorting to stereotype, she had me in stitches as she tried to wiggle into a black lace teddy much too small for her. By the way she looks at herself in the mirror, you can tell she still feels sexy inside. As she sings a love song to a pink vibrator (Only You) and mimes a drum solo, she has the skill of making us laugh with her, not at her. Throughout the show I wondered how the actresses felt about performing something thats cornier than all the cornfields in America combined. And yet, at times they were able to surpass the limitations of the material. And they did make me laugh. Though it took a long time to get there. Am I telling my friends not to miss this show? No. That said, I still cant stop thinking about some of the scenes. And that is due to the skilled performers. Well, that and the fact that the whole show is just so weird. While many in the audience laughed and whooped and dozens of women streamed to the stage when invited to join the kickline at the end Menopause: The Musical didnt give me that feeling of sisterhood I experienced when I saw The Vagina Monologues. I was grateful theres no intermission and the show is over and done with in 90 minutes. If only The Change in real life were that short and definite. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Menopause: The Musical>> When: Through July 2 >> Where: Broadway Palm Theatre, Fort Myers >> Cost: $39-$62 >> Info: 278-4422 or BroadwayPalm.comCOURTESY PHOTODonnalynn Waller as the Iowa Housewife.

Naples First Medispa CONTRACT BRIDGEWhat does the double mean? ...BY STEVE BECKER Bridge is a partnership game, as everyone knows, but in some deals it is obvious that the partners are pulling in opposite directions. Obviously, when partners are communicating on different wavelengths, almost anything can happen and frequently does. Take this deal where East-West were out of tune. The bidding went as shown, with East doubling Norths final three-notrump bid. Easts double in this sequence carries a special meaning. It states that East thinks the contract can be defeated if West leads the suit he opened the bidding with in this case, hearts. Indeed, had West led a heart, the defenders would have scored four heart tricks and a club, and South would have gone down one. But West led the king of diamonds instead, and South made the contract. He won the diamond with the ace, established dummys clubs and finished with an overtrick after West cashed the Q-J of diamonds. It is easy to sympathize with West, who naturally was more inclined to lead a diamond from a solid suit than a heart from a broken suit. Weve all witnessed worse leads that turned out more successfully. But here West had no one to blame but himself. Once partners agree that a double in a given sequence such as the one here is lead-directing, the player on lead has no choice but to obey his partners wishes. It must be assumed that partner is not doubling just to hear himself talk. Bridge is a partnership game.

There are no exams or grades, just learning for the joy of learning with friends, neighbors, and peers. Presenters can offer single lectures and/or short courses in art, business, computer instruction, ecology, environment, government, history, law, life enrichment, literature, music, philosophy, psychology, religion, science, sociology, medicine and U.S. and world affairs.

LIFE-ALTERING EXPERIENCES WHERE POSTCARD VIEWSmeet LATEST FILMSPopstar: Never Stop Never StoppingIs it worth $10? YesThe team behind Saturday Night Lives viral hits D--in a Box and Lazy Sunday now bring us the feature length Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, and its every bit as crass, ridiculous and hilarious as you expect. And if you havent heard of those viral videos, go see Popstar anyway because its damn funny and surprisingly smart. Andy Samberg stars as Conner4Real, a music superstar who shot to fame as part of the Style Boyz trio and later had great success with his first solo album. However, his second album, Connquest, is a total disaster. With his life falling apart, one Style Boyz band mate, Lawrence (Akiva Schaffer), refuses to speak with him while the other, Owen (Jorma Taccone), has been relegated to the role of a background DJ. Conners manager (Tim Meadows), publicist (Sarah Silverman) and girlfriend (Imogen Poots) offer support, but you sense they realize how superficial his work and celebrity are. The story is told as a mockumentary thats a mix of a Behind the Music special and the absurdity of This Is Spinal Tap, complete with tales of controversy, rampant stupidity and back stabbing. The music is trashy, catchy and fun Equal Rights shows Conner worried about being perceived as gay while insisting theres nothing wrong with it, Mona Lisa questions why the painting is famous by saying she looks like a Garbage Pail Kid and theres a false modesty in Im So Humble that Mariah Carey says she loves. Speaking of Ms. Carey, we learn about Conners success and stature from pop stars such as Nas, Carrie Underwood and Usher, and there are other cameos throughout from the likes of Emma Stone, Justin Timberlake and more. Clearly, the creators of the w T o ( v o h dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com

Live Entertainment on Tuesdays through Summer! 6 6 Welcome Aboard! film The Lonely Island trio of Mr. Samberg, Mr. Schaffer and Mr. Taccone arent satirizing one person or band, but rather an entire industry of celebrity culture. It takes guts and intelligence to latch onto social trends, understand them and scathingly satirize them for optimum comic value. But co-writers Mr. Samberg, Mr. Schaffer and Mr. Taccone (the latter two also co-directed the film) only take it so far. Teetering just below the flashy outfits, marijuana, bling, entourages and hangers-on is the utter stupidity of it all. The filmmakers are absolutely aware of this but never go so far as to overtly criticize; theyre reticent when they could be resonant with cultural commentary on how and why we consume all the trash celebrities provide. Doing this, however, would have been tricky, as it would essentially slap audience members in the face for liking who they like, and remember this: The target audience for Justin Bieber, Pharrell, etc., and this movie are one and the same. This doesnt mean the filmmakers dont get their shots in, of course, sometimes in more obvious ways than others. A TMZ-inspired TV show called CMZ isnt even trying to be coy about what its spoofing, and Conners desire to release his second album through household appliances suggests how intrusive technology has allowed the media to become whether we as consumers like it or not. Theres no such thing as selling out anymore, he says, and darn if your music automatically playing when people open their fridge doesnt suggest thats true. Do we really want to listen to a sellout? The story doesnt explore that question, but it would have been interesting if it did. In fairness, you cant deduct points from Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping for not biting the hand that feeds it. Its just not that kind of movie. It is, however, a funny movie with appealing music that might just get you thinking about whether the celebrities you adore are worthy of adoration. FILM CAPSULESAlice Through The Looking Glass (Mia Wasikowska, Sacha Baron Cohen, Johnny Depp) Alice (Ms. Wasikowska) returns to Wonderland and travels back in time to save the Mad Matters (Mr. Depp) family. The visuals are impressive, but the performances and story feel overdone. Rated PG.The Nice Guys (Russell Cr owe, Ryan Gosling, Margaret Qualley) A private eye (Mr. Gosling) and muscle man (Mr. Crowe) team up to find a missing girl (Ms. Qualley) in 1977 Los Angeles. The chemistry between Mr. Crowe and Mr. Gosling is tremendous, and there are enough creative laughs to make it satisfactorily entertaining. Rated R.

CELEBRITY EXTRADice star in new feature film BY CINDY ELAVSKY Q: I was pleasantly surprised to find that I love Andrew Dice Clays new comedy on Showtime called Dice. I especially thought that the actor who played Natashas brothers husband was wonderful. Can you tell me what else I can see him in? Tina H., Mount DoraA: Actor and stand-up comedian Eugene Kim played David on Dice, a thrilling experience for him because he got to meet and work with Andrew. Eugene told me: I love Andrew Dice Clay. Hes one of those iconic comedians that you look up to and hope to meet. I had seen him at the Comedy Store, and he just brings this power when he walks in. He just has that star quality and charisma. As an actor, hes extremely nurturing. That is something I appreciate as an artist because you want to feel safe in your environment. And somebody who is a legend like Andrew, he could have easily been a jerk, but he was a really great person to work with. Eugenes next project is the feature film Car Dogs, which also stars Octavia Spencer, Josh Hopkins, George Lopez and Nia Vardalos. Eugene revealed: Its an indie film, and the plot happens over the course of one day. The main character, Mark Chamberlain who is played by Patrick Adams, who is in Suits has a quota of 35 cars to sell by the end of the day. And he needs us, his car salesmen, to help him meet that quota. The question is will he do whatever it takes to make that happen, as far as ethics go. Q: Last summer I was really into David Duchovnys new series, Aquarius. Please tell me it will be back again this summer. Tia J., via emailA: David will return to the role of LAPD detective Sam Hoidak, who is hot on the trail of a missing girl who has taken up with Charles Manson and his family. As you know, the series is set in the late 1960s, with the action taking place before the infamous Tate-LaBianca murders. The 13-episode second season returns to NBC on Thursday, June 16. Veteran actor Tim Griffin joins the series as Agent Ron Kellaher, a foil for Hoidak and hell-bent on getting him kicked off the force. Readers: CBS Shows we wont be seeing this upcoming season include Angel From Hell, CSI: Cyber, Extant, The Good Wife, Mike and Molly, Person of Interest and Rush Hour. Also, you wont be seeing Supergirl on CBS after this season, but it hasnt been canceled; its switching over to The CW, where it will be right at home with all the other superhero series.

KOVEL: ANTIQUESChairs meant comfort for cockfighting fans of the upper class BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELCockfighting is not legal in the U.S. today, but in the 18th and 19th centuries the sport was a favored event among all social classes in England. There were high-stakes betting games at the cockpits from Shrove Tuesday, and cockfights were sometimes held in the drawing rooms of county estates whose guests and owners sat comfortably in cockfighting chairs. A cockfighting chair has a rounded back and broad, curved armrests that are often padded. The seat is also padded, and many are covered in leather. The sitter straddled the chairs back and leaned on the arms. Some think today that these were really reading chairs to be used in a library (a reading desk was attached to the curved back to hold a book). Since there are many drawings that show these chairs at cockfights, and many are also known to have been used in libraries, it is a mystery as to which came into use first. Legal cockfighting in England ended after the 1835 Cruelty to Animals Act was passed, but the popularity of the cockfighting chair remained until Victorian times. Q: I just paid $65 for a Wild Bill Hickok lunch box with matching thermos. It has some scratching but only on the edges. What do you think about the price I paid? A: The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok ran on TV from 1951-58. It also was a radio show. The lunch box that pictures Wild Bill Hickok and Jingles, his horse, was made by Aladdin Industries in 1956. They sell from $50 to $225, depending on condition, so you be the judge. Q: I have owned a beautiful bronze and gold statue for 30 years. Its 26 inches tall and depicts a standing female figure in a long gown with her arm draped over her head. Sorensen Ringi, Paris, 1899 is engraved on the side of the base. Please give me your opinion of its value. A: Your statue sounds like the bronze and partially gilt Sarah Bernhardt figure by Swedish sculptor Harald SorensenRingi (1872-1912), made at Loucet Ciseleur in Paris. Such statues signed by Ringi have sold from $4,500 to $6,900. Other Ringi statues can be found from about $600 to a few thousand dollars. Tip: To dry a decanter or narrownecked bottle or vase, try this method: Roll up a paper towel and insert it into the narrow neck until it is about an inch from the bottom of the bottle. The towel will absorb the moisture in the bottle in a day or so. Need prices for your antiques and collectibles? Find them at Kovels. com.

Folks regularly ask me about selling sets of china, silver and crystal. But this would be my answer: Wait until fall. Why fall? In Florida, seasonal residents have already headed North for the summer. That represents a substantial hit to local customer bases. And it means dealers and consignment businesses probably will pay less merchandise simply because they know it will be sitting on shelves longer. When I had an antiques mall booth, sales dropped by more than a third after Easter/Passover/Mothers Day. The upside? If youre looking to buy, dealers no doubt will be more flexible in their pricing. I took a road trip recently to the Sugar Chest Antiques Mall in Pompano Beach, one of the nicest antiques malls on Floridas east coast, and noticed many dealers were offering 15 percent to 25 percent discounts on all items $25 and over; some dealers even were allowing customers to combine items to make the $25 limit for the discounts. But you still want to get rid of things, right? So what can you do with your treasures until its time to sell them? Photograph your items. Interview the owners of antiques and consignment shops. Ask them when its best to sell. Check with them as to the likelihood of even selling the items when the time comes whats treasure to you or me may not be treasure to anyone else. When we broke up my grandmothers house about five years ago, I took the Noritake china she bought in 1962 for everyday. I had grown up with it and loved it, but knew it wouldnt fetch much over $100. I hated to see it sell for nothing. If you feel the same as I did, why not get your treasures out and use them? Put the everyday stuff away and celebrate the fact that you have treasures to enjoy. If theyre truly fragile, hand washing only takes a couple minutes more than tossing things in a dishwasher. Who knows? By the time fall comes around, you may find yourself discarding the everyday stuff. After all, isnt every day were alive and able to serve a meal worth celebrating? Id like to think so. scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org COLLECTORS CORNERReady to let go of treasures? In Florida, wait until fall, if you can LOOK WHAT I FOUND Bought: Teen Challenge Super Thrift of Southwest Florida, 15631 San Carlos Blvd., Fort Myers; (239) 267-5433. Cost: $15. The Skinny: The only thing that would have been better than finding one of these Paul Hanson urn lamps would have been scoring a pair. The lamps design is inspired by a classic Baccarat crystal lamp. Alas, this is not Baccarat. But it is made from high-quality, light-grabbing glass that would look good with any dcor. A Baccarat lamp might be priced in the thousands; this Paul Hanson certainly would be a few hundred bucks in the right shop. It underscores a point I make every week: You never know what you will find, or where you will find it. That is the thrill of the hunt. Let this lamp light your way.

Proceeds of the gala will benefit the initial planning for expanding and modernizing the NCH Baker Hospital downtown emergency department. NCH is so fortunate that this special couple has agreed to chair our annual fundraising gala, says Dr. Allen Weiss, president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.

Mrs. Jones was a nurse manager at NCH in the early 1990s, before transitioning into other health-care roles. She has volunteered for St. Matthews House, Kids Against Hunger, Habitat for Humanity, the American Heart Association, Community School of Naples, Gulfview Middle School and Naples High School, and for 13 years she chaired the annual Neighborhood Health Clinic Block Party.

I had plenty to share and made sure my counterpart had a helping once he finished his tacos al pastor. One More Thing: Weve added Flacos to our running list of restaurants that supply tacos al pastor that are worthy of throwing down a few coins.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Another Broken Egg Caf, 670 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 300-0696 While Another Egg offers traditional items, theres lots of unusual fare, too. Crab cakes topped with poached eggs and Andouille-infused Hollandaise, for example. Omelettes with lobster and Brie and even some breakfast appetizers. I can personally attest to the deliciousness of the Baked Brie Delight, a slab of warm cheese served with apples, raisins and pecans sauted in Grand Marnier butter sauce p aired with toasted French bread. Other winners were a large bowl of house-made granola, fruit and quinoa with strawberries, blueberries, bananas, coconut and vanilla Greek yogurt; the Bacquezo, an omelette with cream cheese, bacon, chorizo, Monterey Jack and green onions; and the Hey Lucy! omelette with chorizo, sauted onions, green chiles and cheddar. A Belgian waffle and gluten-free pancakes were top-notch as well. A bonus: The staff is uniformly welcoming and efficient. Lunch served, too. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2016 Araya Sushi Asian Grill, 2650 Immokalee Road, Naples; 593-3344 The creators of Fuji Sushi Bar & Asian Bistro, Jon and On Augsondthung, provide a more upscale experience with equally great food at Araya. Theres a wide range of sushi plus cooked Thai and Japanese dishes. Try any of the dozen yakitori items, priced by the skewer, and dishes such as sauted chicken livers with asparagus, spicy tuna nachos and carpaccio of hamachi with jalapenos. A tiger roll shrimp tempura with asparagus, avocado, rice, seaweed, sesame seeds, masago, smoked salmon, eel and wakame was huge and wonderful. A nightly special, the mummy roll, contained spicy blue crab in rice paper with mango sauce, tobiko and gold flake. Grilled salmon with baby bok choy and lychee duck curry were as delicious as the sushi. For dessert, try the Tokyo sundae with sticky rice, green tea ice cream, red bean paste, lychee and coconut. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2014 Dougs Seafood, 3411 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 992-1902 The closest youre likely to come to a true Maine lobster roll in Southwest Florida is served at this small seafood market and caf founded by a lobstering family from Maine. Prepared food includes cold and warm lobster rolls; crab and shrimp rolls; lobster, shrimp or crab wraps; and fish tacos. A steam table holds trays of chowders, bisques and lobster macaroni and cheese. You order at the counter and they quickly deliver to tables, so theres not much on which to base a service rating. Sandwiches come on plain white plates with a bag of chips and a cup of cole slaw. The lobster rolls come in two sizes, both of which are overstuffed with succulent, sweet shellfish without fillers or seasonings. When it comes to other seafood sandwiches, a little more pizzazz might be in order. The shrimp roll, for example, could be improved with some fresh tarragon or diced celery, and the spartan fish tacos would benefit from shredded lettuce or cabbage, fresh cilantro and a spoonful of salsa. Soft drinks served. Food: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2015 7th Avenue Social, 849 Seventh Ave. S., Naples; (239) 231-4553 A lot of Naples restaurants serve great food, but few do it with the fun and funky vibe that 7th Avenue Social achieves. The spot formerly occupied by Flava is now owned by Colin Estrem, who offers innovative cocktails, housemade pickles, conch sliders, smoked fish mac and cheese, chicken and waffles, pineapple upside down cake and a host of other goodies conjured up by executive chef David Lani, a graduate of the esteemed Culinary Institute of America. Stop in for drinks and relax in the eclectic collection of chairs clustered near the entrance, or dine at a table where a couch (with pillows) provides two of the seats. I loved the pickles, a chile verde pork taco, the mac and cheese and the sloppy but satisfying Southern fried chicken wings. We shared a nightly special of yellowtail snapper encased in salt that was served tableside with white asparagus, crisp yucca fries and a side of Bernaise sauce. Sunday brunch and late-night menus available, too. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2015 The Local, 5323 Airport-Pulling Road, Naples; 596-3276 This restaurant's name aptly describes its mission: to serve as much farmand sea-to-table food as can be procured locally. Run by chef/owner Jeff Mitchell, a Culinary Institute of America alum, it has a menu thats creative, a setting thats refreshingly unfussy and a staff thats friendly and accommodating. The menu changes frequently, depending on whats available. If they are offered, I recommend starting with the Pine Island clams in red curry. The sauce is sweet and spicy, redolent of basil and studded with scallions. Panseared triggerfish was expertly cooked, enhanced by mango and avocado salsa. Mustard-roasted all-natural Joyce Farms free-range chicken breast with mustard breadcrumbs, soft-boiled egg and pecorino sauce was an imaginative way to dress up poultry. From the side dish choices, we liked the blackened potatoes, the sweet potato cake and the roasted beets with shallots and sherry vinegar. Dont skip dessert (everything is homemade). Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2015

CHEF Q&ASardinian-born chef/owner brings international experience to Cosmos BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comHow about a slice? We caught up with Gianluca Corso, the owner of Cosmos Cafe & Pizzeria and Cosmos at the Pier, to ask how he transformed a tiny pizza shop into a downtown institution in just eight years. Read on to find out how his passion for the restaurant business and authentic Italian food keeps Neapolitans coming back for more. Q: Tell us about your business background and how you came to Naples. A: I grew up in the restaurant business working for my family in Italy. My brothers and sisters are all in the restaurant business in Sardinia. Many of my recipes are from our parents and grandparents. After Italy, I worked in restaurants in London and Madrid before coming to the United States 2003. After visiting Naples, where my wifes family lives, we moved to San Francisco to become general manager of three restaurants in the North Beach neighborhood. We came back to Naples four years later and opened Cosmos shortly after that. Q: What was the original concept for Cosmos? Has it changed over the years? A: When I opened Cosmos in 2008, it was just a small one-room, 24-seat pizzeria. Our staff consisted of my wife in the kitchen, one waitress and me as the pizzaiolo. Over the last eight years, it has grown and expanded to become a 150-seat, full-service restaurant and bar. However, it remains important to me to keep it a neighborhood restaurant with a homey feel. I want people to feel like they are coming to a friends house for dinner; that has always been important to me. Q: What drives you to try new restaurant ventures? A: I love this business. I love the restaurant industry. I love being a part of the community. And I love to challenge myself. I love meeting new people and interacting with my customers. Now I feel even closer to my community with the Cosmos at the Pier. It has the chance to welcome tourists to beautiful Naples and show them what a great city this is. Q: How does the pier concession differ from your other restaurant? Your customers are in a totally different setting, so operations must be totally different from a traditional restaurant. A: It is totally different than Cosmos because it is more of a tourist location. But the basic rules always remain the same: high quality food, great service and a friendly atmosphere. I want people to feel welcome, and I want them to leave with a satisfied feeling. I want them to feel excited to come back to Cosmos and Naples. Q: Why did you choose to be a restaurateur? A: Its in my blood. Its the only job I really love to do. If I were born 10 times again, I would do the same. I find the fast pace of the restaurant business challenging and exciting. I love meeting new people from all over the world everyday. Q: What management tip would you have for someone new to running a restaurant? A: I would tell them to keep high quality food, friendly staff, clean restaurant and kitchen and above all, be consistent. I would also tell them to be present, because no one will care for your business more than you do. In addition to making the big decisions, being on site and a part of daily operations is crucial to a successful business. Q: Who do you depend on to keep things running smoothly? A: I am always at the restaurant myself, but I rely on my whole staff to keep things running smoothly. Teamwork is absolutely necessary to running a smooth operation. Without communication between the staff in the front and back of the house at Cosmos, it would be impossible. Q: How is the restaurant scene in Naples unique?

High-rise residences with Gulf views selling quickly at Kalea BayClubhouse also under constructionSince it was first announced, Kalea Bay, a gated, resortlifestyle community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, has set a new standard for luxury residential high-rise living. The incredibly-designed residences at Kalea Bay, combined with spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico, the Cocohatchee River and a pristine nature preserve, have propelled the community to become one of the hottest-selling properties this year. As of early June, our first tower with 120 luxury residences, is 70 percent sold, stated Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing. The 22-story tower will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. At the current time, construction crews are working on the towers 16th floor, which is helping buyers see the value of purchasing now. From my office in the sales center I can observe on a daily basis the construction progress, said Wilson. Its not only exciting for me, but also for those whove already purchased and even the visitors who have come to the sales center for the first time. Six floor plans are available at Kalea Bay with prices currently starting at $1.3 million. Residences 1 and 6 are 4-bedroom/4-bath 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 while residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/four-bath plans with 3,921 total square feet. All residents of Kalea Bay will revel in gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence, 9-foot 2-inch high ceilings and wood floors throughout. The custom kitchens have Wolf and Subzero appliances, a natural gas range, Downsview cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island. Our kitchens feature an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for todays hosts and hostesses, said Wilson. The layout of the kitchen can be experienced firsthand through a replica of one in our sales center. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve, stated Wilson. That means all of our residents have front row seats for our spectacular sunsets. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features. Wilson says dramatic views are available to every single resident, not matter which floor they live on. Thats because the towers amenities are located on the rooftop, explained Wilson. That includes our sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and 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. The first residential high-rise tower at Kalea Bay will be completed in the summer of next year. However, it wont be the only building on-site to reach that milestone. Currently, Kalea Bays community clubhouse area is also under construction and slated to be completed around the same timeframe. Our clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of Kalea Bay, said Wilson. 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. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site sales center. It is located on Vanderbilt Drive, just north of Wiggins Pass Road at 13910 Old Coast Road in North Naples. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com. Above: All master bedrooms offer views of the Gulf of Mexico. Left: Kalea Bay residences have open floor plans with 9-foot high ceilings. Below: The 22-story tower at Kalea Bay will have 120 residences. Kalea Bays first tower was designed with rooftop amenities, including a sky lounge, spectacular pool and open-air fitness center.
