C3 BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ What if the notion is not true? And even if it is true, as some compelling evidence and the wisdom of thoughtful people sometimes suggest, perhaps there are solutions to a problem many have noticed with dismay in recent years: Americans appear to be increasingly disconnected from each other. And not just from each other. From common values, ambitions and even habits that might once have defined many of us, no matter where we came from or what we did. From the green and growing world that gives us food. From a greater portion of the opportunities and wealth that a few have. From the political process. From communications technologies, or because of them. Arguably, we have even drifted away from an imperative moral sense that we owe the nation and its people some measure of devotion and SEE DISCONNECT, A8 PHOTO ILLUSTRATION ERIC RADDATZ / FLORIDA WEEKLY Making waves teaching kids how to swimThe disconnect.For many Southwest Floridians, swimming is simply a fun activity or a form of exercise.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYRubio comes callingWhat we dont want is for this to be a glimpse of the future. But thats what we fear were seeing this year: a fish-killing, people-sickening, tourist-offending, filthy-water look at things to come. A glimpse of Atlantic and gulf beaches east and west of Lake Okeechobee so devastated by our effluent that few will want to live on them or fish off them, and visitors will pointedly avoid them. Such a reality would mean huge economic losses and a widespread decline in the quality of life along Floridas southern coasts, both east and west.That increasingly common fear along with Sen. Marco Rubios need to sympathize with it, and thus to garner votes for his 2016 Senate run brought him last week to both coasts of Florida, where Gov. Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency.I dont remember Sen. Rubio ever appearing on either coast before just to talk about the fight for cleaner water. Warm and attentive in person a darksuited 6-footer with only slightly receding black hair and a talent for appearing comfortably focused in front of cameras or small groups water hasnt been one of his big-punch battles, after all. Those have included fights against Cuban communists, terrorists, gun-control advocates, illegal immigrants and his lost battle for the presidential nomination. Those were his fights, rather than water. But now, with fish dying and tourists changing their Florida plans and local commissioners encouraging more development and waterfront properties becoming harder to sell and with even less regulation of water uses by industry, agriculture and construction than in past years I went to see the senator. He had traveled to a lovely old meeting house of hardwood floors, high ceilings and great windows pitched in the shadow of a 32-story condominium tower built on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River, in downtown Fort Myers. Out those windows we watched the turgid, mile-wide river bearing its filthy excess to the nearby gulf from the vast cattle populations along the Kissimmee south of Orlando, from Lake O. itself 50 miles east of Fort Myers, from the runoff of sugar and citrus operations, from suburban lawns, from a multitude of poorly regulated septic systems numbering in the tens to the hundreds of thousands. We watched all of it sliding silently west only 15 or so miles from its mouth near Sanibel Island, water released by the Army Corps of Engineers to protect an over-budget boondoggle of a dike repair job now years behind schedule. I hadnt come to look at that river or its history, though. I wanted to stand near Sen. Rubio, who was pushing the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan. I wanted to look at him, to listen to him, and to study the people around him. The meeting was closed to the public (it was easier that way, a Rubio staffer told me), but not to mayors, county commissioners, state representatives, chambers-of-commerce officials and a couple of environmentalists who joined him to express their concerns, with television and newspaper reporters looking on. Was the senator finally getting serious? His personal water history wasnt promising but perhaps hed changed. Not long after he won his Senate seat, Sen. Rubio shrugged off our mounting water woes by joining the de-regulators in federal and state government. Not only did they include Gov. Scott, who eviscerated the states water protection arm in 2011 by firing hundreds of state regulators in an effort to downsize government and its influence in our lives, but they also included David Vitter, the senior U.S. senator from Louisiana. First, Sen. Rubio had applauded Gov. Scotts loosening of water regulations and his bid to stop the federal Environmental Protection Agency from stepping in to monitor and regulate Florida water: I will continue working with my colleagues in Washington to prevent this EPA power grab from ruining Floridas economy, he said at the time. Then, less than two years later, he signed a David Vitter letter with 30 other Republicans, stiff-arming cleaner-water proposals. If the EPA is allowed to move forward with this guidance, the letter said, streams, lakes and wetlands in nearly all of our states are going to be overburdened with federal bureaucracy. At the meeting last week, however, the senator agreed that the Everglades plan was only a first step in the very slow and much bigger process of real restoration slow because leaders are not willing to suggest we spend more money, or to buy lands south of Lake Okeechobee en masse, where lake water can be released. One step at a time, he cautioned. Standing near television reporters, I had a chance to talk with him. So I asked: Has your opinion about the need to regulate water changed? Should the EPA be involved now? More regulations arent the answer, he told me. And neither is the EPA. If you get them involved, he said, they can regulate you even if you have only one little puddle on your property. Aside from further regulating Big Ag and Big Sugar, what about requiring everyone up and down both the Caloosahatchee and the St. Lucie to update their septic systems, I asked? Too expensive, Sen. Rubio suggested, recalling how hard his family struggled in West Miami when residents were required to spend thousands updating their septic systems there. Not everybody has $10,000 for new septic, he said. But is it too expensive to save our water, our beaches and our economies by offering government help for those who cant pay? Is it too expensive to monitor what goes into the water from industries and agriculture with more discipline and caring? Is it too expensive to save what is now dying, and will die if we dont? I didnt get to ask the senator those questions. So I leave them to voters. roger GIGANTIC FURNITURE SELL-OFF! 80%up to SAVE A Message From The BrothersOur Distribution Center is overloaded and truckloads of the latest furniture fashions are arriving daily.

The beautiful, well-spoken Melania Trump took the words right out of Michelle Obamas mouth and delivered them as if they were entirely her own in a speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention. The purloined passages were originally spoken by the future first lady at the 2008 Democratic National Convention. A Tweeter follower picked up on the similarities and called them out. Whiz, bang, the major networks produced a split screen replay of she said/she said. Alas, there was no question. Parts of Mrs. Trumps speech were cut and pasted from the remarks made by Michelle Obama nearly a decade earlier. The Trump team responded as if a falsehood told vigorously makes the truth negligible. Finally, a speech writer buried in the Trump camp took the fall. It was all true. I thought the accusation of plagiarism was a bit harsh. With an audience of 30 million people watching, Mrs. Trump did quite well in making her first prime time address. She is known to be an inexperienced and reluctant campaigner, especially in the context of the nonstop turmoil, bombast and political drama associated with her husbands campaign. In Mrs. Trumps defense, the passages originally spoken by Mrs. Obama and echoed in the more recent speech are uplifting to anyone who still believes in the American Dream. That they were borrowed from a Democrat, a rock star in the Obama White House, and from a woman who is a force of nature in her own right, well, that was just icing on the cake. Seeing both women speaking virtually the same words, simultaneously sisters in harmony on a split screen, well, it was enough to make you think perhaps the wrong Trump was running for president. The two women do share commonality. Like Mrs. Obama, Mrs. Trump is a second to a spouse in whose shadow she exists, not an easy role for any woman has kids, a brain and a passion to make a difference in the world as Mrs. Obama surely does. I found it strangely comforting that, in a moment of challenge, if the question arises of who you gonna call, Melania would dial up Michelle for inspiration. Shed be right. Mrs. Obama has devoted her tenure in the White House to performing national works of public service, most notably, Lets M ove, an initiative to fight childhood obesity and ensure all children get a healthy start. But it hasnt been easy for her, even when its on behalf of such an important and blameless cause. Ms. Obama is the first African-American woman to occupy the White House who isnt a slave, maid or a staffer. In the context of this nations troubled racial history, she sets a high standard for character and leadership. She is a first class role model for Mrs. Trump (or any future spouse) of a U.S. president, dignifying and substantiating with good works of her own the formal role of the spouse and the stature of the presidential family in the affairs of the country. She is also quite possibly the coolest first lady in the nations history. Mrs. Trump absorbing by accident or design some of Mrs. Obamas own words is a positive, a nod of admiration to the intelligent and world-wise woman who first utter ed them. Then too, Mrs. Trump may need to channel Mrs. Obama more often. If Trump is elected, she will be the first immigrant to become a first lady. She would be thrust into a role she never imagined for herself as the third wife of a ferociously anti-immigrant, racist, narcissistic, billionaire white guy. Then, too, her own improbable road to the White House graduating from model to trophy wife, 24 years younger than her husband, gorgeous and mostly seen and not heard allows right-wing conservatives to overlook any imagined defect associated with her Slovenian birth. As first lady, she would be expected to play her part in the public square, embracing the xenophobia, nativism and misogyny of her husbands administration. Her duties await her: A groundbreaking with a gold shovel for the wall her husband promises to build; a Rose Garden press conference hosted with the NRA, her new gun license on display, pledging to opencarry her Glock to all appearances; and a ribbon cutting for the nuclear arsenal in readiness for President Trumps reply to the provocation of some terrorist rant. In this light, the melding together of Mrs. Trump and Mrs. Obama as if of one mind could be a good thing. Mrs. Trump and her ghost writers can be forgiven for letting her/their enthusiasm get ahead of herself/themselves. Why say it differently if someone says it right the first time and you entirely agree? Cavorting Bill Clinton is biggest loser in this election yearNo matter who wins the White House in November, the election of 2016 already has produced one clear-cut loser. Bill Clinton. Mr. Clinton has long been considered his generations finest practitioner of politics, but that designation does not really do him justice. Mr. Clintons political skills, as a presidential candidate and as president, were equal to or far above any of his predecessors. His closest modern-day rivals would be FDR and Ronald Reagan. Mr. Clinton left office with an approval rating of 66 percent, which was remarkable for a president who had been impeached during his second term. As he slipped into retirement, Mr. Clinton remained the most popular American politician. Beginning in 2008, when Mr. Clinton stumped on behalf of his wife in her bid to defeat Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination, some disturbing stumbles and fumbles began. He was castigated for what many saw as a troubling injection of race into the campaign when he attempted to brush-off Ms. Clintons defeat in the South Carolina primary by saying, Jesse Jackson won South Carolina in and Jackson ran a good campaign. Obama ran a good campaign here. Mr. Clinton feebly claimed that it was Mr. Obama, in fact, who was indulging in racial politics. I think they played the race card on me, he said. We now know, from memos from the campaign, that they planned to do it all along. Fast forward to 2016. Mr. Clintons miscues of 2008 were dismissed as curious aberrations. This time around, Clinton enthusiasts assured us, we would see the Bill Clinton of old. Instead, as one wag has suggested, all we got is an old Bill Clinton. He sullied his reputation and, by extension, the reputations of Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Ms. Clinton by famously barging aboard the AGs airplane on the tarmac at Phoenix in the midst of the FBIs email investigation.His speeches have largely been pedestrian and delivered in a voice both raspy and alarmingly weak. More than one observer has noted that Mr. Clintons hands often tremble when he holds notes at the podium.These, along with Mr. Clintons gaunt appearance, have stirred rumblings that he is unwell. But no one has produced an iota of proof to that end. Indeed, Mr. Clinton who has suffered serious heart ailments is said to be an enthusiastic vegan who is solicitous of his health, a far cry from his presidential days when he would interrupt a jog for a Big Mac break at McDonalds. More concerning than rumors of physical infirmity are his Louis XVI lifestyle and his blind eye for ethical considerations. The man who fought and clawed his way out of a hillbilly upbringing in Arkansas now lives a bubble-boy existence that is not at all unlike that enjoyed by his wifes nemesis, Donald J. Trump. Bill and Hillary doggedly portray the clueless Trump as a cloistered billionaire totally out of touch with the concerns of average Americans. And while they are undeniably correct in that charge, it is legitimate to question if the Clintons are the best people to be prosecuting it. (A small but delicious anecdote that speaks volumes about the alternate universe that is Trump World is the story Melania Trump confided to an interviewer. Mr. Trump, she said, is an incredibly tolerant and forbearing husband. He is very understanding. If I say, I need an hour, Im going to take a bath, or Im having a massage, he doesnt have nothing against it. What a guy!) Tales of Mr. Clintons cavorting, globetrotting and schmoozing with a host of nefarious characters who funnel millions to the Clinton Foundation are by now so numerous and well documented that they have passed from scandalous into the realm of ho-hum, what else is new. Mr. Clinton is said to charge corporations a mind-numbing fee of $750,000 for a speech and a Q&A session. And any questions to be asked must be submitted in advance to Mr. Clintons staff, which reserves the right to deep-six those they find to be objectionable. Mr. Clintons profligacy was subject of a recent article in the Los Angeles Times. In one instance documented by the newspaper, Mr. Clinton insisted on being flown from San Francisco by private jet to a (speaking) venue just 70 miles down the freeway. While in San Francisco to deliver other speeches, Mr. Clinton charged his hosts $1,400 for a days worth of phone calls from San Franciscos Fairmont Hotel and $700 for a dinner for two. As they say back in Arkansas, thats livin in high cotton for a man who used to look common folk in the eye and drawl, I feel your pain. These days, the only pain Mr. Clinton feels is that which arises from the selfinflicted wounds he routinely administers to his reputation and legacy. bill

Unbeknownst to us, the carnivorous, poisonous threat to the health and safety of our family and pets found a way into our screen enclosure and silently prowled our lanai for hours before we found it the next morning. It was occupying the same space as our sweet Tulip, a large housecat who is a quick and deadly killer of all manner of intruding reptiles. I was grossed out and didnt have a decent idea of what exactly we had on our hands until my beloved had the notion to remove it with his bare hands. A quick Google search will reveal why thats a bad idea, but the hissing and spitting at his approach tipped us off. Then we moved on to combating stray ants around the doorframes. Shouldnt regular visits from the bug guy keep them at bay? Thats what I always think when mid-summer brings with it a constant battle to keep creepy-crawlers outside. Hope springs eternal, right? From the centipedes that curl up in doorways to the flying beetles that hover in your ears when you approach a stand of trees, its an insects world right now and will continue to be until the summer storms let up enough to let lawns air out a bit. Right now, the ground is so sodden and the air so hot that that the local flora and fauna are practically blooming with bug life. Its a wonder the bugs dont carry the sod off the lawns, leaving them scalped and helpless against the thundering storms that plague them to begin with. Mother Nature cant contain it all, so it results in snakes sunning themselves on the driveway and a regular massacre of poisonous bullfrogs in the flowerbed. Its not as if these intruders are cute, harmless little pests, either. After an overnight deluge, we found the pool flooded with fire ants one morning last week, flushed somehow through the deck into the one spot of respite we can find in the heat. A mystery portal in the lanai brought a 4-foot black racer through the pool cage, forcing us to beat back the puppy in order to prop open the door and pray it slithered through. I went mystery solving with our son under some shady trees only to watch too many mosquitos light on the tender flesh of his arms and legs. After swiping those off, we called it a day when I looked at his face and saw two large, raised bites on his face. Perhaps this is the year to reevaluate our bug control options, but the explanation weve received in the past is that the daily rain carries away any outdoor protection the exterminator lays down. So for the next month, well continue shrieking while smushing, smashing, hacking, catching and releasing the lower life forms that figure that the entire outdoors isnt enough to contain them. Until then, well be patiently waiting for our exterminator, Bob, in the hopes that he has a plan of attack for next year emphasis on attack. Lindsey Nesmith often wonders why she lives in a place where shes regularly visited by four of the seven plagues.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYresponsible action action aimed not at our individual profit but at the good of the whole. In World War II, for example, the majority of adult Americans were part of the war effort, either working at home or serving overseas. Now, less than 1 percent has served in either of the two protracted wars in which we remain engaged, and the sometimes-fawning approval Americans display for veterans or combat troops may show little real understanding of their lives. Should we consider changing our marching orders from E. Pluribus Unum (out of many, one) to E. Pluribus Centum (out of many, a hundred)? Well, not just yet. This week, Florida Weekly peers inside the notion of a great disconnect flowing out of the tributary lives of Americans and into the broad river of our culture through the eyes and minds of people who have thought about the issues from their own distinct and different experiences. Let us share those thoughts with you by prefacing them with a few more statistics. In matters of wealth, The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development published a major report last year that showed 10 percent of Americans taking in 28 percent of all income par for the course in developed nations, according to the OECD. But more disturbingly, the richest 10 percent of American households have 76 percent of all the wealth, defined as anything we own that has value. Thats by far the highest disparity in the developed world: In Canada or Great Britain, for example, the top 10 percent hold roughly half the wealth, and the percentage goes down in other western European nations. In communications, we have seen a sea change. The landline telephone, radio and television together formed a communications triumvirate that altered the course of life for Americans in the 20th century: radio fully came into its own in the 1920s, when telephones also began to appear even in rural American settings, and television captured the cultural landscape starting in the early 1950s. Now everything has changed, again. About 92 percent of American adults have cell phones, and 62 percent have smart phones, with that percentage increasing almost monthly, according to the Pew Research Center. A common suspicion held by many is that smartphones and such social media as Facebook and Instagram weaken our ability to socialize in substantial ways, while increasing our awareness of each other in superficial ways. But the suspicion certainly does not inhibit our appetite for the beast itself. Pews American Trends Panel Survey of two years ago showed that about 75 percent of Americans thought it was OK to use a cell phone while walking down the street, on public transportation or while waiting in line. But using cell phones at a restaurant was considered impolite or rude by 62 percent, while the percentages increased into the 80s and 90s for Americans disapproving of cell phone use at family dinners, during meetings, at movie theaters or in other quiet public places church, for example. But people under 50 rarely turn their phones off, the survey showed, and people under 30 arent horrified by the constant use of the phones. When it comes to Facebook, 72 percent of all adult internet users are part of it, and 62 percent of the entire adult population, according to Pew. About 82 percent of online adults under 30 use Facebook. In our understanding of the natural world, or in food production and self-sufficiency a way of being connected to the world Americans traditionally held as inviolable the bare statistics are sobering. In 1800, only a small percentage of us were not farmers. Now, only about 2 percent of us are, and many of us spend little time in wilderness (a walk in the park does not count, according to some). As for our political processes, we appear to experience an ebb and flow of interest and participation that too frequently, perhaps, allows American decision-making to be deeply influenced by those who fail to participate the nonvoters. Between about 1840 and 1900, the percentage of eligible voters who went to the voting booth never dropped below about 70 percent, and in a number of elections rose above 80 percent. Of course, those who were eligible included only white men. In recent times, 62.3 percent of eligible voters turned out in the presidential race of 2008, 57.5 percent of eligible voters turned out in 2012, and what happens this year is anybodys guess. In light of those facts (and keeping in mind that statistics, while facts, do not always suggest the truth of a matter), we offer words of the wise, and perhaps to the wise. DISCONNECTFrom page 1 There is a contradiction going on here: on the one hand, were more connected than weve ever been. But the big difference, and the disconnect, if you will, is that we dont have a common frame of reference when it comes to information. Alan Schroeder, professor of journalism at Northeastern University in Boston


NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2016 NEWS A9 Alan Schroeder, professor of journalism at Northeastern University in Boston, is a former reporter, author of several books on media and politics, a contributor to national and international journals such as The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Guardian, an international lecturer who has also served as a U.S. emissary; an Emmy Award winner for a Boston radio show, and a Kansas native.There is a contradiction going on here: on the one hand, were more connected than weve ever been. But the big difference, and the disconnect, if you will, is that we dont have a common frame of reference when it comes to information. There used to be a plethora of newspapers in each American city, but at the same time youd have a treatment that worked on television. You sat down and watched the same newscasts, reporting the same set of agreed-upon events and with a common denominator. Now, that is just out the window. Its less and less effective a glue all the time. I do think its dangerous. If we cant agree on a common set of facts or goals, how to do we keep society together? Its a problem in a societal way, but its also a problem for the media, those of us who are professional reporters. Social media, meanwhile, is a little more than just a new communications tool. Its a whole system of interacting that didnt exist before. In the past, old media didnt go away when something new came along. Television didnt kill radio and radio didnt kill (live performance or lectures). But theres something different about this, and about the fact that even though social media is a shared experience, it can also be almost completely an individual experience. This separation and the resulting anonymity also encourage bad behavior. Youre not dealing face-to-face with people, youre writing angry screeds on a keyboard somewhere and sending them off. So, some of the general lack of civility that really comes into focus is this: Were unlearning how to be with each other as human beings. And thats very troubling. It has negative implications for a lot of things. Our political culture, the media, the way we view our responsibility to other people theres a lot of downside. But theres good stuff, too. Being able stay in touch when you travel overseas, being able to connect to people almost anywhere and everywhere, thats the positive side. Thinking about the future: Im torn here. I see us retreating more and more into our bunkers. But Im also thinking about our students. They may see this differently. The technology is so common to their lives they dont view it as something worse it is what it is. So, were at this interesting moment here where the change has begun. We have some inkling where this is headed, but thats all. I guess Im optimistic in general. This will all push in a good direction, eventually. Peter Bergerson, professor of Public Policy, Florida Gulf Coast University.In some ways theres always been a disconnect between some elements in American society, in a political, a social and an economic sense. But now theres a highlighting of an economic gap between the very wealthy and the middle class and theres a disconnect politically between different groups. One of things were more cognizant of is the role of the media and 24/7 news, which tends to emphasize these divisions, so theyre more obvious. But at least in politics, the division is based on the argument of a free market: You have open ideas, you debate and discuss them. The problem occurs when the rhetoric has become caustic and toxic. That is different. In the past, there generally hasnt been quite the vitriol associated with two sides debating each other and using terms that are I dont want to say black and white red and blue. Everyone rushes to their own corner, so to speak. But on occasion that has happened before. Look back at 1968, a high water mark of divisions seen in society based on race, on politics, but maybe not so much on the economics of that time. The assassinations, the disagreements on the Vietnam war and look how close the elections were then, as well. In addition, you had the factor of George Wallace (an Alabama governor and presidential candidate who resisted segregation aggressively). He inflamed race relations. The idea of negativity in campaigns is not something that is new at all. Campaigns have been riddled with it. Even Nixon, when he ran for the U.S. Senate in California, did it. His Democratic opponent was Helen Gahagan Douglas. This was during the McCarthy era, and the House Un-American Activities Committee, and Nixon famously said she was pink right down to her underwear. The dog-whistle then was calling someone pink and creating that disconnection. So in the same way Trump disconnects Americans with illegal immigrants taking jobs, with a wall, with proposals to make Muslims register. For some people thats going to solve their problem a simple solution to a complex problem. Thats not to say that immigration is not a legitimate policy issue, but having a religious test for immigration, or building a wall thats not possible. Its absolutely, patently impossible to build a wall. But that doesnt mean a lot of people wont believe it. Its a question of balancing change and stability. Thats something we do in society all the time. Its said that Franklin Delano Roosevelt mastered radio and John F. Kennedy mastered television. Now, political parties, institutions and candidates are using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the internet as a way of interacting and communicating. But they can do it with a much more focused audience. They can identify, and individuals will selfidentify. Im an optimist over the long haul. Im 100 percent positive that well overcome this. This drama and the level of disconnect or separation is kind of like the tide. The water comes in, the water goes out. Julie Byle is a Ph.D. student in ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder. She grew up on Floridas southwest coast as a seventh-generation Floridian and a third-generation biologist.There is much to be said about the disconnect of humans from nature. Of all ages. Whether in child care or hospice, we still lack the physiological research to understand why being in nature is beneficial both for learning and for socio-emotional wellness. People attempting to write green time into lesson plans or treatment plans are still considered tree huggers in most places, so we need the research. We know that people love to be in nature, yes, but why? And how do we tell people in decision-making seats how important this is? Im exploring this question everyday while working with folks writing the state standards for science education. I am finding that learning and socioemotional wellness do go hand and hand. When people are happier and healthier (in nature) they learn more. Period. I see a drastic difference between my students success in a classroom versus outdoors. The rise of technology is both beneficial and detrimental to the current and future state of relational psychology, productivity, and emotional health. Technology can connect us (being able to share research findings, for example) but it has also disconnected people. The abundance of stimuli through an electronic device is hard to beat, chemically. Nature and technology are apples and oranges, though. Its unrealistic to be black or white in judging what we should use. We are neither robots nor trees. Were humans, and therefore were capable of creating and maintaining a healthy balance between the two.

There were two Hearst papers and several more with a variety of opinions. You even had the Communist Daily Worker at one end of the scale and Father Coughlins rabid anti-Semitic and, as some thought, pro-Nazi Social Justice SEE DISCONNECT, A10 SCHROEDER BERGERSON BYLE HILLIARD


A10 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY k l y .co m and a Catholic newspaper that often supported his views, The Tablet at the other end. The point is that there were multiple viewpoints available. Given that the media (television, radio, the press, the internet) are the most powerful forces today for affecting peoples minds, emotions and, to a great extent, even actions, the fact that some six international entities control or directly affect the content of about 90 percent of the worlds media outlets means a serious lack of alternative viewpoints for the people. Multinational media companies tend to be conservative to far right, and have skewed peoples views of the political scale. If you look at the publics reactions as expressed in letters to the editor and responses in non-press media, ideas and concepts that were once considered conservative are now considered objective. Concepts that were once considered objective are now labeled liberal. Liberal views have become left and far right is now considered conservative. As long as the media are controlled by a few huge corporations, the American people will have little or no alternative information or viewpoints presented other than what those corporations want the people to believe. Case in point: a conservative media conglomerate now owns the two major daily newspapers in Lee and Collier counties. More and more people who think they are supporting conservative causes are in reality supporting far right and even radical right causes. Sgt. 1st Class Jim Greenhill, Army National Guard, immigrated to the U.S. from England as a young adult, graduating from the University of North Carolina. He became an award-winning reporter at The News-Press in Fort Myers and elsewhere. Following 9/11, he enlisted in the Army, where he continues to serve. He notes that these are his views, which constitute neither an endorsement nor the opinion of the Department of Defense or any other entity.Im the 1 percent. Actually, Im the about 0.5 percent. Its a safe bet youre in the 99.5 percent not currently serving in the armed forces. Last year, 265 active duty service members killed themselves. I bet if you and I try to discuss that, one of your assumptions will be this is a consequence of combat, and it will surprise you when I explain about half of them never saw combat. And I bet if we try to discuss Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan or Iraq, it will end up being frustrating for both of us. The odds are very, very high you havent been to any of those three places, let alone repeatedly visited them for more than a decade. The very meanings of those names is different for you than it is for me so much so that I have more or less abandoned trying to discuss them with civilian friends. So much so that I experience something like pain when I hear some of the things said about them, the assumptions, the facts that cant be challenged, even by someone who has been there. If you and I sit down for an extended chat, Im probably going to realize that, while you are aware of some ongoing operations in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, you are oblivious to the continuous presence of our troops in places such as Kosovo, the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt, Djibouti and dozens of other countries for, in many cases, decades. But enough about me. Tell me about your health care. Your retirement plan. Your education benefits. Your job security. Notice how my attention just drifted? I have all of those things. I take them completely for granted. I am so thoroughly consumed by my daily duties and so completely surrounded by other service members both physically and in my social-media echo chamber that I have little time to seriously reflect on your daily stress. Which is mutual, because you probably havent really considered what it would mean to pick up stakes and move about every three years; have repeated, extended, sometimes dangerous separations from your partner and children; or change your childrens schools and friends repeatedly. The good news is that, deep down, you and I do know about the disconnect. My brothers and sisters in uniform talk among themselves about what it means to live on self-contained bases and posts separated from the majority, in self-contained communities we dont even have to leave for groceries. We talk about how to overcome that. And were fortunate, because almost 40 percent of our nations service members are in the Reserve and National Guard components. If your friends or coworkers include someone like me, chances are that person is a reservist. Which means they have feet in both worlds, know the challenges of civilian and uniformed life and can serve as translators. Understanding is a two-way street that demands at least as much listening as talking, a conscious effort to seek to prove ourselves wrong rather than to validate our existing opinions and a good-faith attempt to at least try to imagine what it would be like to be the other. So Ill try not to give up on having those conversations about the places Ive been. And, if I ask one thing from you, its this: A half-dozen of my friends have paid a much higher price for their service than I can ever really understand (funny how there are disconnects even there). Politics aside, they did what they did because they believed they were serving you. I love them like brothers, in a way I cannot explain however hard we try to build bridges. My respect for them is without limit. Do me a favor? Make sure my Wounded Warrior friends are treated in a manner appropriate to their sacrifices and service. If youll help ensure our country does right by them, for the rest of their lives, there will be no disconnect. Bill Byle, natural resource planning director, Charlotte County, is the father of Julie Byle.This is one of the most important matters that affects every aspect of every person on the planet. But its reached crisis level in all of the advanced countries, especially in the United States, where 90 percent of people under 40 are disconnected from nature. And that problem is directly connected to almost every personal, social and global problem being faced. Things have changed in the last 50 years. And sometimes what appears to be obvious isnt true. Why are we so disconnected? Its real easy to identify a whole bunch of things that have disconnected people on the family and social level, but I can only speak to my experience. I had one foot in the past when there was a fair amount of connecting between people, and now I live in the world where there isnt. I cant believe Im that old. I came to live (on Pine Island on the Gulf Coast) with my grandmother in 1955, the same year her husband died. I went from public housing in Richmond, Va., to a bedroom window over the hightide line. There was one TV station, black and white, that signed off the air with a test pattern at 9 p.m. If the wind was right, you could go out and turn your antenna toward Tampa and maybe youd get a station out of Tampa. Its pass to say that TV screwed up everything. But when you had one TV station, and there was no air conditioning, and no internet, you went outside. You lived on the dock. I had a boat. We always were outside. The only thing my grandmother ever said to me was, If you want a warm supper, be home by dark. So my whole life was being outdoors, and not knowing it, and being connected to nature, and if it werent for my grandmother and that, I dont think Id be alive now. Raising our kids: I wont say we were dictatorial (about getting into nature). We did all the normal things gymnastics class, dancing class, everything normal city kids do but our lives were outdoors. It didnt happen in somebodys condo. Jill and I had a 2-acre yard near Sanibel on purpose. So Robin (his son, now a graphic artist) and Julie grew up with rabbits and squirrels and birds and an eagles nest. There were otters over the back fence and a bobcat and gopher tortoises so she grew up with this wildlife all around her. Im a Joseph Campbell person: everybody should follow their bliss. Ive never once said, You should think about an environmental career. But its her bliss, too. Millisa Bell De Choch, master gardener and beekeeper, works in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties. She lives with her husband, Santiago De Choch, on Pine Island.Recently my husband and I sat down to a delicious meal of chicken, heirloom eggplant and potatoes. To say the meal was deeply satisfying would be an understatement. The satisfaction didnt come from the fact that it filled the belly (which it did) or delighted the taste buds (which it overwhelmingly did). The true satisfaction that I derived from that meal was knowing that outside of a sprinkling of salt purchased at the grocery store, the entire meal right down to the herbs we seasoned it with was cultivated and produced entirely on our little farm. The fulfillment came from knowing exactly how much work, effort, and sacrifice went into providing that simple, delightful, nutritious meal to our plates. The joy came from knowing exactly how it was produced, how it was harvested, and knowing exactly what we were eating. I didnt have to wonder if my vegetables had been sprayed with pesticides or what kind of life that chicken led before we ate it. I knew because I was part of the entire process. I call that food sovereignty. There are others out there like me trying to reach this goal on a daily basis, and a select few who have been continuing the tradition all along, but we are a limited bunch. While more and more people like me are desperately trying to reconnect with the food we eat and the true costs associated with that food, we are but a drop in the bucket within the food-to-mouth disconnect that has invaded our culture. And there is a clear war being waged on both our desire and our ability to reconnect. Not having this connection to the food we eat has allowed us to turn a blind eye over the last century to the loss of 90 percent of our food diversity. It has allowed and encouraged us to ignore the mass environmental pollution and destruction created by the way the majority of Americans eat; to ignore incredibly inhumane suffrage of animals; to ignore soil depletion and subsequently a weakening of the mineral content of our food (while the vitamin shelves grow larger to replace that loss); to ignore mass spraying of food crops which are linked to a wide array of health ailments; to ignore water quality; to ignore slave-labor wages for both immigrants and farmers (because people have become accustomed to cheap, governmentally subsidized food); to ignore mono-cultures and the problems they create; to ignore an indisputable reliance on the grocery store shelves being full; and perhaps worst of all, to buy into the hype that only GMOs can feed the world while we here in this country discard nearly half of ours in the trash. In my opinion, with what the massively scaled, pesticide and herbicide laden, and governmentally subsidized practices dominating this country are producing, thats exactly where most of that food belongs. Weve been sold on the fallacy and convenient idea that it is the only way to provide food for ourselves and the only way to eat, and as a result, eating for most in this country has become a mindless, ungrateful practice. What my partner and I do on an acre of land can easily be produced on your typical urban lot, but the powerful interests that be have decided that lawn and palm trees are the better investment and damn the urban or gated community dweller who believes or attempts to invest otherwise. Their efforts are most likely to be quickly thwarted and in many cases penalized by the guy who took down every potential nesting site in their gated community before branding it with the misnomer Eagles Preserve. The cost is the loss of community that comes from having a locally produced food supply. Food literally brings us to the table. And what I would call real food brings us into a genuine dialogue with the people we share it with. How have we fallen away from each other socially, politically, economically, and so on? We have metaphorically left the table that sustains, enlivens, and connects us all. We now eat at the table of mass media, social media, and cheap, nutrient and spiritually deficient food. How many people do you know who make it through a meal without feeling the need to look at their phones? DISCONNECTFrom page 9GREENHILL BYLE DE CHOCH

March was coined Swinging With Purpose Month by the groups volunteer board during which they invited numerous golf clubs throughout the Naples area to participate in a fundraising push to raise money for women and children in need. Eight clubs participated and more than 1,000 golfers got involved in the month-long charitable efforts. Our supporters come from within the community, said Ms. Riley. We started this nonprofit organization because we all wanted to channel our love for the game of golf into helping the disadvantaged, and we knew that if we joined together we could make a real difference in the lives of many women and children who need help. Members from clubs such as Imperial Golf Club, La Playa Beach and Golf Resort, Naples Lakes Country Club, Palmira Golf and Country Club, Plantation Golf and Country Club, Quail West, Stonebridge Country Club and The Quarry Golf Club netted donations of $32,000, bringing the total earned to date by Swinging With Purpose to more than $250,000. The March fundraising activities also included a 60th birthday bash for board member Sandier Fleming, who encouraged SWP donations in lieu of gifts. With an encouraging first quarter, the board is looking to the future. Just this week, Ms. Riley has been nominated for a prestigious Jaffe Award, which could add significant funds to their efforts to grow the presence and philanthropic reach of the brand, both regionally and nationally.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELDodge Charger SRT Hellcat 707 horsepower for the whole familyHellcat. Dodge was able to inspire an entire generation of muscle car fans with this one word. It means that an already massive 6.2-liter V8 motor is given a supercharger to create 707 horsepower of rolling thunder. The fact the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat packs more power than a Lamborghini Aventador into a family-sized package makes imaginations go wild. After all, what daydream would be complete without beating the boss Porsche Panamera Turbo S to every stoplight? Or becoming the envy of the neighborhood by leaving tire-smoking burnouts after every soccer practice drop-off? But just like a superhero, the SRT Hellcat hides its bionic strength behind incognito sheet metal. Most of the exterior upgrades are trim pieces. If no one notices the extra scallops in the hood, special vents in the bumpers, blackedout wheels, or those cool Hellcat fender logos, then it could be mistaken for a lesser Charger. Its not entirely a bad thing, considering Dodges full-size sedan already does a nice job of blending retro and aggressive design cues. The Hellcats undercover styling is not accidental. Being able to fly under the radar in a stealthy vehicle that can approach 200 mph but looks like a family sedan is quite appealing to some people. But more importantly to Dodge, the conventional styling can have a trickle-down effect. For everyone who is drooling over the Hellcat in this article right now, few are willing and/or able to pay the $68,640 base price (including gas guzzler tax.) With nearly $40K between that highend trim and the most basic Charger, the Hellcat magic is a great tool to entice people into the showroom and possibly introduce them to something similar-looking that they can afford. Inside are the great hallmarks of any family sedan. There are comfy bucket seats for dad and mom, and the backbench has enough legroom so that the kids dont kick and can carry a second adult. There are plenty of standard features for the money GPS navigation system, dual-zone climate control, backup camera with radar parking aids and heated and cooled front seats. All of this suggests a very practical vehicle, but with one touch of the ignition button, sensibleness instantly fades away. The Hellcat motor doesnt try to mask its aggressiveness. It fires up with a rumble that is like a small thank you for allowing it to chug all that premium fuel. It can idle through the neighborhood without setting off car alarms, but just barely. It wants to scare every other vehicle on the block ... and when the time is appropriate, the Hellcat can. Straight-line supremacy is almost a guarantee with its large V8 and supercharger thats ready to go right off the line. But the engineers actually spent some time thinking about corners, too. Thats why it comes with an adjustable sports suspension with Bilstein shocks, large Brembo brakes and extra sticky Pirelli tires. These are all great for traction, but that doesnt mean the Hellcat doesnt live up to its name. The most fun amateurs will have with this car is making right turns onto deserted six-lane roads. All anyone has to do is hit the accelerator and aim for the center. The Hellcat will wildly wag its tail while marking every lane before the electronic brain and competition-worthy components bring it back into line. There are plenty of ways to turn off all the cars nannies, but for everybody except the most experienced drivers, it will likely result in watching their supercharged kitty climb a palm tree. Thats the fun of the Hellcat. It is a wild and raucous beast hiding in the family car. In fact, this motor is only offered elsewhere in the Challenger, and this has more back seat space and less blind-spot prone design touches. The Hellcat is not cheap to buy or distinctive to look at, but its worth every penny in the fun it provides if you buy this super sedan for the right reasons. Its not a car to own, but a car to collect. This isnt your sons first car; instead hell only drive it when its inherited. And if you drive the Dodge Charger Hellcat correctly, that wont be for a long time.

Brown, MD, FACSFounder & Medical DirectorLifetime Eye Care for the Entire Family12 CONVENIENT LOCATIONSThe power of prayerA 28-year-old woman, unnamed in news reports, veered off the road and into a house in the Florida panhandle town of Mary Esther on July 7. She apparently was free of drug or alcohol influence, but readily explained to police that she must have gone through a stop sign and left the road when she closed her eyes to pray as she drove. (The house was damaged, but no one was injured.) Weird numbers making the news The Transportation Security Administration announced in May that it had collected $765,000 in loose change left behind in airport scanner trays during 2015 an average haul for the agency of $2,100 a day (numbers assuming, of course, that TSA personnel turn in all of the money they find). Los Angeles and Miami airports contributed $106,000 of the total. Take your word for it: Scientists at the University of Cambridge, writing in May in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, claimed to have figured out how to construct a motor a million times smaller than an ant. (It apparently involves lasers, gold particles and van der Waals forces, and the object is to bind the gold particles and then cause them to automatically snap apart with, according to author Jeremy Baumberg, 10 to 100 times more force per unit than any known other machine.) CEO Michael Pearson told a Senate committee in April that he regret(s) the business model he instituted in 2015 for Valeant Pharmaceuticals the one that, for example, allowed a drug (Cuprimine) that treats liver failure and formerly cost a typical user out-of-pocket about $3 a pill (120 per month, $366) to, overnight, cost the user $15 a pill. (The insurance companys and Medicares cost went overnight from about $5,000 per 100 tablets to $26,000.) (A Deutsche Bank analysis of the industry tallied Valeants all-drug average price spike at more than five times the average of any competitors.) Pearson told the senators he had no idea that such a pricing strategy would turn out to be so controversial. The passing parade: (1) Mark Herron, 49, of Sunderland, England, was arrested again in May his 448th arrest on alcohol-related charges. The year started well for Herron, with only 14 collars through March, and he cleaned up briefly before a family bereavement sent him spiraling downward again. His current lawyer admitted that his client has been in court more often than he himself has. (2) Austrian Hans Heiland vowed in June to assist a needy family in Oberholz by donating to a charity fundraiser sponsored by the local fire department. He has been collecting bottle tops through the years and figures he could sell his treasure now, as scrap metal, to help the family. He has at least 10,000, no, make that 10 million caps, weighing several tons. Wait, how many fell for this? In May, the federal government finally shut down a long-running international scam that had sold psychic assurances (prosperity! winning lottery numbers!) to more than 1 million Americans. In personalized form letters, two French psychics had guaranteed success and riches to clients if they would only buy their $50 books (and massive upselling usually followed). The Justice Department estimated that during the spree, the sellers earned upward of $180 million on at least 56 million pieces of postal mail. In a June verdict still reverberating through the telemarketing industry, a jury in Utah found that three companies run by Forrest Baker III had illegally made 99 million phone calls to consumers on the Do Not Call Registry and an additional 18 million calls telling people they were merely doing surveys when the purpose was hawking their family friendly movies. Both charges are violations of the Federal Trade Commissions Telemarketing Sales Rule. Although the total fine and damages have not been decided, the law provides that the most serious offenders could be assessed $16,000 per phone call (for a maximum of almost $1.9 trillion). A recent study by a Harvard University data scientist estimated that the government of China funds the creation of at least 488 million bogus socialmedia posts a year. The report refers to a rumored government-sponsored arrangement that pays people the equivalent of 8 U.S. cents per post of news for the purpose of distracting socialmedia users and channeling them to subjects preferred by the government (such as successes of the Communist Party). The family of a Virginia Tech student missing since 1998 was notified in March that the mans remains and ID had been found in a wooded ravine 700 feet below the New River Gorge bridge near Beckley, W.Va. in an area the mans vehicle tracker had long identified for potential searching. A West Virginia State Police sergeant told reporters that in the years since the student disappeared, the remains of 48 other bodies had been found underneath the bridge. Recurring themes: (1) Fernando Estrella, 41, was arrested in Franklin County, Vermont, in March and charged with making the foolish error of running a stop sign while carrying a heroin haul. Estrella was rectally packing three condoms stuffed with enough heroin, said police, to fill 1,428 street-retail-size baggies. (2) Esteysi Sanchez Izazaga, 29, was arrested for DUI, hit-and-run and vehicular manslaughter in Oceanside, Calif., in June after driving three-fourths of a mile (3,960 feet) with a pedestrians corpse firmly lodged in her windshield after she struck the man. (The drive ended up at her home, where her horrified husband noticed the body and called police.) (3) Roger Marsh, 65, of Cowling, England, was a prodigious collector/hoarder of his indecent images. He was caught with a camera attached to his shoe following skirted women around an Ikea store, and in May was ordered to jail for 18 months by Leeds Crown Court, covering six offenses. However, police had also discovered a trove of 709,376 images and videos at his home, and preliminary perusal of the collection showed 1,600 live files of voyeurism and about 9,000 indecent images of children.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYthat offers at-home swim lessons and lifeguarding services in Collier and Lee counties, as well as in Ontario and across the U.S. Its a skill everyone should have, whether theyre young or old, especially where theres water everywhere, Aquamobiles Diana Goodwin says. There are so many homes with pools, and its so easy for a child to slip away. All it takes is a few seconds. Its so important to learn the techniques so that if they fall in, they can get to the edge of the pool, climb out and be safe. Helping children become swim-capable is a focal point for lesson providers and for good reason. Drowning is the leading accidental cause of death for children under age 5, with fatality rates of nearly 3 per 100,000 in 2010, according to a 2015 Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report. Swimming pools are the most common drowning locations for children up to age 5, while older children and adults are more likely to drown in natural bodies of water, the report further states. Florida leads the nation in the drowning deaths of children under 5, according to the Florida Department of Health. In 2013, the state had the countrys second highest drowning rate for 1-to-14 yearolds, at 2.54 per 100,000 people. The states most recent data for Collier County shows six drowning deaths in 2010, 12 in 2011, six in 2012, three in 2013 and two in 2014. The state health department is still tabulating data for 2015. A desire to prevent drowning in Collier led to the 2010 formation of the NCH Safe and Healthy Kids Coalition, which works to prevent injuries and improve the health of children up to 18 years old. Drownings are 100 percent preventable, and every time that we hear of a tragedy, our hearts ache and it reminds us that we need to continue to provide information and programs to prevent these tragedies, says Paula DiGrigoli of the coalitions advisory board. Swimming is a lifesaving skill that everybody needs to learn, especially in Florida. Making lessons available to minorities is particularly important, she adds, citing a 2010 USA Swimming Foundation study that found that 70 percent of AfricanAmerican children and 58 percent of Hispanic children had little or no swimming ability, as compared to 40 percent of white children. The coalition works with more than 60 agencies, including local schools, Colliers health department, EMS providers and the National Drowning Alliance, to provide education about water safety, CPR and where swimming lessons are available. Some lesson providers, such as area YMCAs and the city of Naples River Park Aquatic Center, offer discounts and scholarships to families-in-need, said Ms. DiGrigoli. The coalitions Swim Central program targets children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, paying aquatic facilities to provide water safety instruction for 1,000 pre-school students each academic year (and also providing transportation). The program is funded by an annual grant from the Naples Children and Education Foundation, founders of the Naples Winter Wine Festival. We work with Collier County Parks and Recreation and the city of Naples, the Boys and Girls Clubs and the YMCAs, Ms. DiGrigoli says. Every single aquatic facility in town, we work with all of them to provide water safety lessons. Need-based partial scholarships for swimming lessons are also available through the Collier County Parks and Recreation at its three aquatic facilities. Last year, we had more than 600 people take our classes, Rich Degalan, supervisor at Sun-N-Fun Lagoon, says about the facilitys summer classes in 2015. Aquamobile Swim School also takes the cost-conscious into consideration by allowing people to take the lessons as a group and split the flat hourly rate between them. You can have the benefit of semi-private lessons and still keep the cost down, Ms. Goodwin says. Collier Countys three YMCAs Greater Naples, South County and Marco Island are another popular source for swim lessons, year-round. On Marco, The Y offers private and group swim lessons for all ages at its Ms. Dottie Weiner Aquatics Center, with a focus on instructing youths. In May, the facility offers the Waterwise Program, which teaches the basics of water and boating safety to third graders from Tommie Barfield Elementary School on Marco and Manatee elementary in East Naples. Boating safety instruction is handled by members of Marcos U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, while the Marco Ys aquatics staff conducts a swimming skills test and dispenses information on pool safety. Personnel from the Marco Island FireRescue Department provide instruction in proper responses to water-related emergencies. In late June, the Marco Y kicked off a new, free swimming program for children from Parkside and Manatee elementary schools who are participating in the organizations summer camps. Both schools are Federal Title 1 schools, where 90 percent of the students qualify for free or reduced breakfasts and lunches. About 50 children are being served by this summers four-week-long, grouplesson program, which is for pre-school students through fifth grade. Another 50 youths will receive lessons between August and October, according to Joel Frysinger, the Marco Ys program coordinator. The program is funded by a $6,000 grant from YMCA of the USA. A lot of those kids have never had any swim lessons, and the younger we get them, the better, Mr. Frysinger says. Im just glad that weve been afforded the opportunity to help with this.

A20 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY UF study: Hungry parents might dish out more food for their kids THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAThe hungrier parents are at mealtimes, a new study shows, the more they might feed their young children, which could have implications for childhood obesity. In a small pilot study of 29 children ages 3 to 6 and their mothers, University of Florida researchers asked the mothers to rate their hunger as well as their childs hunger prior to a meal. Among women who were overweight or obese, those who rated their own hunger higher also perceived their childs hunger as higher and, in turn, served their child larger portions of food. Because young children have difficulty recognizing when they are full, the more food they are presented at mealtime, the more they are likely to eat, says lead investigator Sarah Stromberg, a clinical psychology doctoral student in the department of clinical and health psychology in the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions, part of UF Health. The study was designed to determine what factors might impact how much food parents are serving their young children. If we can start to identify those factors, we might be able intervene to help parents develop more appropriate portion sizes for younger kids, which hopefully can lead to a longer life of healthy eating habits, senior author David Janicke, Ph.D., a professor of clinical and health psychology, says. Because of the small sample size, the study findings are preliminary. Ms. Stromberg and Mr. Janicke say future research should be conducted with a larger group of participants and should track the calories consumed by children throughout the day, not just at one meal, as was done in the UF study. In addition, researchers should observe parents and children in a home environment eating the foods they normally serve rather than the free, buffet-style meal offered by the researchers. I think this study was a good starting point, Mr. Janicke ssays. Ultimately, if were able to see these findings replicated, we can intervene with knowledge, awareness and strategies to help parents and kids work together to limit how much kids are being served. Previous research has found that parents with depression and anxiety might be more likely to believe that their children are experiencing the same psychological symptoms. Ms. Stromberg and Mr. Janicke wanted to examine whether that kind of projecting of parents feelings onto their children might hold true for perceptions of hunger. For the study, mother-child pairs were asked to participate in a study of their interactions during playtime and a lunch or dinner meal. After 10 minutes play at a UF lab, mothers were asked to complete a questionnaire that collected demographic information and asked her to rate her hunger and her childs hunger on a seven-point scale, where 1 was not hungry at all and 7 was extremely hungry. Researchers also collected participants height and weight. Next, researchers brought in a selection of food and drinks and asked the mother to serve her child and herself. The options were chosen for their palatability in young children and included baby carrots, apple slices, cheese slices, crackers, cookies, macaroni and cheese, vegetable lasagna, chicken nuggets, water, 1 percent milk and apple juice. Researchers found that for mothers who were heavier, higher ratings of their personal hunger were related to rating their childs hunger as higher. Those mothers also tended to dish out more food to their children than mothers who were in a healthy weight range.The researchers also discovered that regardless of a mothers weight or perceptions of hunger, most of the participants served their child portions that were larger than recommended daily allowances. Mothers served 573 calories, on average, to their child, with children consuming an average of 445 calories. The suggested daily intake for children in the 3to 6-year-old range is 1,000 to 1,400 calories. Ideally, one meal for a child that age would not exceed 400 calories, Ms. Stromberg says.Resources such as can help parents determine how many calories their children should consume, she adds. Using those recommendations can help parents be objective when serving their kids and not base portion sizes on their own hunger or how much they are serving themselves.

For more information, visit Childhood obesity begins with choices BY JL WATSON Special to Florida WeeklyWe all think chubby babies are cute, but obesity continues to increase in the U.S., beginning at early ages. Studies show that more than one-third of children are obese, and the condition has become one of the biggest health threats for children. Lee Memorial Health System pediatrician Denise Drago, M.D., aims to reverse the trend. One of the first things parents can do is monitor their childs body mass index, Dr. Drago says. A childs BMI can help us assess if there is a weight problem. A physician, nutritionist or online calculator can help measure a childs BMI. We keep seeing the numbers increase, Dr. Drago says. In 2to 5-yearolds, the rate of obesity increased from 5 percent to 12.4 percent from 2003 to 2006. In 5to 17 year-olds, the rate of obesity increased from 14.2 percent to 48.4 percent from 1973 to 2009. Genetics and lifestyle both play a role in childhood obesity, Dr. Drago says. Children are more likely to be overweight if their parents are overweight. The risk of obesity is about 9 percent for children whose parents are lean, but 60-80 percent for those whose parents are obese. Parents really need to be role models and make healthy choices, both with food choices and exercise, Dr. Drago says. Children see what their parents do and make similar choices. When they learn to make healthy choices, its easy to maintain those habits throughout a lifetime.

PET TALESThe bankhar returns to an age-old job with a new twist BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickTheres a new khan in town. Scientists are working to re-establish a Mongolian flock-guarding dog called the bankhar, whose powerful demeanor could be said to be reminiscent of the Great Khan, Genghis, the famed and feared 13th-century conqueror. Their goal? To not only protect the goats, sheep, horses, camels and yaks belonging to Mongolias nomadic herders, but also to protect endangered snow leopards and other predators such as wolves and bears from being shot, trapped or poisoned for killing livestock. By warding off predators and forcing them to seek wild prey, the bankhar performs double duty as a protection dog, saving lives on both sides. More often than not, the physical presence of the dog would be enough of a deterrent to the predator, says Greg Goodfellow, project scientist for the Mongolian Bankhar Dog Project. Predators might just view the cost/benefit ratio as not significant enough and just move on. The MBDP is a nongovernmental environmental conservation organization founded in 2011 by Bruce Elfstrom, a biologist by training and CEO of a company that does frequent business in Mongolia. It seeks to bring back the historic use of the dogs as livestock guardians. The practice faded away in the mid-20th century when the government sought to introduce more modern methods of livestock care. Elfstrom was familiar with the use of livestock guardian dogs in other countries and wondered why they werent being used in Mongolia, where predator-livestock interactions were a problem. When he discovered that some people in remote areas still kept dogs for that purpose, he became interested in learning more about them. Bankhars go way back in Mongolia. When I asked wildlife ecologist and MBDP national project coordinator Batbataar Tumurbataar how long the bankhar has existed, he said, Its the first dog, which means 15,000 years. Is that what the stories say? I asked. Its what DNA says, he replied. Although theres no way of knowing what early dogs looked like or when bankhars took the form they have today, DNA indeed shows that bankhars, along with other Central Asian dogs such as Tibetan mastiffs, have much more genetic diversity than dogs elsewhere, says Adam Boyko, Ph.D., a geneticist at Cornell University who is studying the evolution and genetics of village dogs around the world. It is consistent with these being ancient groups of dogs, he says. Bankhar are big and athletic, giving the impression that they can move quickly if the need arises. They dont typically bark unless provoked, but when they do, it sends a menacing message. Bankhar have a playful, curious side as well, Goodfellow says, and can be clever escape artists from their kennels at the training facility near Mongolias Hustai National Park. Their job is to stay with livestock 24/7, whether they are in pastures or barns. They are fed and watered with the animals they guard to ensure that they dont have any need to leave their charges. Thats a key part of training them to stay with the flock, Goodfellow says. Since the winter of 2014, approximately 19 puppies have been placed with herders in the Hustai area as well as in the South Gobi desert and near Gorkhi Terelj National Park. The dogs dont typically show mature livestock guarding behavior until they are 2 to 3 years old, Goodfellow says. Its not yet known how their presence has affected predation on livestock. Ultimately, we want to compare predation rates preand post-bankhar placement and then translate that into economics, Goodfellow says. Our hope is that by giving herders dogs that protect their livestock from predators, they wont feel the need to kill or trap predators.

THE DIVA DIARIESWhen Billy Fuccillo ads look good, youre on politics overloadSo, weve nearly closed the curtain on the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia yet folks, I still havent recovered from the Republican National Convention in Cleveland quite yet. Seriously yall, Im exhausted. Its all my fault really. While I may push forth a public persona that loves nothing but shopping, champagne, bacon-wrapped shrimp and endless sparkles (I do love all of those things, dont get me wrong), I dont often talk about the fact that Im a serious political junkie. Even if the only vote on the ballot is director of mosquito control, Im at my polling place early in the morning and sporting my red, white, and blue I voted sticker all day long. And since my gender has only had the privilege to enter the voting booth for around 96 years (I know a few actual humans older than that), Im punching or rather penciling, that ballot each and every time Im allowed. The problem is, especially every four years, when were looking at the presidential election, I tend to overload my brain on political hoo-ha and by hooha, I mean useless rhetoric that gives me gray hair and raises my blood pressure. I wish I could ignore it, but I cant unplug and Im not the only one. Recently, I commiserated with friends and we admitted that when it comes to political overload, we have a problem and after all, admitting you have a problem is the first step. Here are just a few signs that prove youve been seriously deluged with hooha during the political season: You not only stay up until nearly midnight every night watching the conventions, you watch the late night shows until 2 a.m. as well. Take it from me, the highlights will be on YouTube the next day go to bed. Step away from the Facebook. If the morning after you watched Donald Trumps acceptance speech, you realize that youve blocked and deleted your crazily conservative Aunt Brenda (this didnt happen to me AT ALL, by the way), then youre clearly taking politics too seriously. When you find yourself watching political ad after political ad and actually feel relieved and grateful when Billy Fuccillo and Caroline come on the TV to scream loudly about HUGE savings, then you know youve had way too much politics. Finally, if youre thinking about stockpiling canned goods, building a bunker, and liquidating all your assets into cash to stuff under your mattress, then trust me, youre paying way too much attention to the 2016 election season. Im sure, in the long run, all will be well. But, I will say that I cant wait until November, because my poor beleaguered liver needs a break, as I (might) be stockpiling vodka. Cheers! Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS

B7 BY BOB MASSEYbmassey@ What do businessmen answer when they are asked, Whats the most troublesome problem you have to live with? posed the Harvard Business Review. Frequently they reply, People just cant write! What do they learn in college now? When I was a boy There is no need to belabor this point; readers know well how true it is. HBR subscribers, for example, recently rated the ability to communicate as the prime requisite of a promotable executive. And, of all the aspects of communication, the written form is the most troublesome. Those two paragraphs led a story in HBRs May issue. May 1964, that is. But it very well could have been ripped from todays headlines. Fast-forward four decades. The National Commission on Writing, a panel established by the College Board, conducts a study and discovers that a whopping third of employees in the nations blue-chip companies wrote poorly and that businesses were spending as much as $3.1 billion annually on remedial training to correct the insufficiency in the writing of emails, reports and other texts. (Take note that the study targeted primarily service industries and did not include government entities so $3 billion is almost certainly on the low end.) Its not that companies want to hire Tolstoy, said Susan Traiman, a director at the Business Roundtable, an association of leading chief executives whose corporations were surveyed in the study. But they need people who can write clearly, and many employees and applicants fall short of that standard. That quote appeared in the 2014 New York Times article reporting on the study, which ran under the headline: What Corporate America Cant Build: A Sentence. And, apparently, it STILL cant. In an article titled Why Johnny cant write, and why employers are mad, CNBC reported that Despite stubbornly high unemployment, many employers complain that they cant find qualified candidates for the jobs they do have. Often, it turns out, the mismatch results from applicants inadequate communication skills. In survey after survey, employers are complaining about job candidates inability to speak and write clearly. Keep in mind were talking about general business writing skills here. Thats bad enough. But when we apply this How to help workers communicate clearlySEE WRITING, B6 Putting it in writing

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Gold Isnt Always ShinyWhen the markets get volatile, many people think about investing in gold. Theyre also drawn to its luster when the price of gold soars, as it occasionally does. Indeed, the price of gold recently topped $1,350 per ounce and hit $1,900 back in 2011. (Just a decade ago, it was around $600 per ounce.) Clearly, the price of gold can be quite volatile, too. Is it a decent long-term investment? Well, in his seminal book, Stocks for the Long Run (McGraw-Hill, $40), finance professor Jeremy Siegel reveals what a dollar invested in various things would have grown to, between 1802 and 2012 (yes, 210 years!): stocks, $704,997; bonds, $1,788; T-bills, $281; and gold, $4.52. Thats an average annual return of 0.7 percent for gold, vs. 6.6 percent for stocks. (Amounts have been adjusted for inflation.) Through many wars and economic times even more troubling than those we face today, gold hasnt proved to be a great long-term investment. In Fortune magazine, writer Chris Matthews noted, ... (G)old is simply not a great place to park anything but a small portion of your investment portfolio. It pays no dividends or coupons like stocks and bonds. And, more than any other investment, gold is very difficult to value. Superinvestor Warren Buffett disparages gold because its not a productive asset: The idea of digging something up out of the ground, you know, in South Africa or someplace and then transporting it to the United States and putting into the ground, you know, in the Federal Reserve of New York, does not strike me as a terrific asset. If you want to buy gold, restrict it to a small portion of your portfolio. You have several options, too. You can invest in gold stocks or gold mutual funds, which can be volatile. You might buy gold coins or bars, but theyll need to be stored safely. You can gather gold opinions, pro and con, and gold investment recommendations by going to and typing gold into our Search box up top. A Range of ManagersMoney managers are definitely a highrisk endeavor! When I started having to manage my investments, I asked friends and others whom they would recommend. Thankfully, I didnt put all my eggs in one basket and instead divided my money into fourths.One manager managed to lose more than 4 percent in a very good year with conservative investments and got me into a pile of stocks that faced ongoing litigation. Another put me in the mutual funds that gave him the biggest commissions. The third has grown the investments by more than 6 percent yearly while providing me with all my living expenses and half the tuition and book costs for two grandchildren. That firm inherited the leftovers from the 4 percent loser!And the bit I have managed myself with mostly Motley Fool recommendations has about doubled in the last 10 years. Im about ready to fly solo! J., Austin, TexasThe Fool Responds: You learned some good lessons, such as how conservative investments dont always turn out to be so conservative and how some advisers have conflicts of interest. You were also smart to try managing some of the money on your own, because most of us are more than capable of doing so, as long as were willing to do the work involved reading, learning, studying and so on. You might even manage your own money simply by sticking to inexpensive index funds. A Biopharma GrowerBiotech blue chip Celgene (Nasdaq: CELG) is a major player in the rapidly growing oncology market, with three primary methods of growth. First, Celgene can grow organically. Its main growth driver is its Revlimid drug, which is delivering increasing revenue due to a growing number of multiple myeloma diagnoses, longer treatment time frames and pricing power. Celgenes Pomalyst, for multiple myeloma, and Otezla, for plaque psoriasis, are also growing quickly, and the company has a pipeline thats full of opportunity. Second, Celgene can grow inorganically via acquisitions. It acquired Abraxis BioScience in 2010 for its metastatic breast cancer drug Abraxane, which had $315 million in sales in 2009. Abraxanes label was expanded to treat advanced pancreatic cancer and advanced non-small-cell lung cancer, and its sales this year could touch $1 billion, though competition has grown. For $7.2 billion, Celgene has now bought Receptos, for its ozanimod drug that treats multiple sclerosis and ulcerative colitis. Its annual sales potential tops $4 billion. Finally, Celgene can use collaborations to its advantage, and is leveraging its R&D by partnering with more than 30 different drug developers to discover first-in-class treatments for cancer, immunology and inflammation. Management is aiming to more than double sales and nearly triple profits over the next five years, and Celgene stock has been trading at an attractive price recently. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Celgene.) I was founded way back in 1975, when two friends converted the BASIC programming language to be used in personal computers (PCs). I introduced my first PC in 1981 and went public in 1986. Since then, my shares have grown in value more than 700fold. My many acquisitions over the years have included Hotmail, Skype and, recently, LinkedIn. Eighty percent of Fortune 500 companies are using my cloud services, and more than 1.2 billion people in some 140 nations are using my productivity suite. As of the end of 2015, I employed more than 110,000 people around the world. Who am I? (Answer: Microsoft) An Earnings ParadoxQCan you explain how a companys earnings per share can rise when its earnings dont grow? T.W., Manteo, North CarolinaAThat can happen if the companys share count shrinks, such as via share buybacks. Imagine that the One-Legged Chair Co. (ticker: WOOPS) has 10 million shares outstanding and $60 million in quarterly net income. Its earnings per share (EPS) is $6. If it buys back a million shares and then earns $60 million again in the next quarter, its EPS has suddenly risen to $6.67. (Sixty million divided by 9 million equals 6.67.) Share buybacks can be good, making remaining shares worth more as long as they arent executed when the stock is overvalued. Paying too much for the shares wastes company (and shareholder) money. ***QI gather that interest rates are likely to rise in the coming years. That will be good for my bank accounts, but what will it hurt? G.L., Warren, OhioAHigher interest rates will be bad news for interest-sensitive sectors of the economy, such as mortgage lending and real estate. Rising mortgage rates can price many potential buyers out of a home purchase, even if they have good credit. This in turn could force sellers to lower asking prices to make them more affordable for prospective buyers. Those with adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) will see their mortgage payments gradually increase. Rising rates are also trouble for homebuilders, as they can lead to not only lower demand but also higher inventory carrying costs. For investors with bond-heavy portfolios, especially retirees on limited incomes, rising rates will likely lead to falling bond prices, which can hurt. The price of gold has been known to fall, too, when interest rates rise. Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to


B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYWRITINGFrom page 1problem to the highly specialized fields of marketing and advertising, businesses are facing a crisis of epic proportions.The money is in the messageImagine if the Metropolitan Opera were mounting a production (where patrons shell out more than $800 for primo seats) and decided to hire performers who could neither hear nor speak, much less sing. Thats the analogy legendary ad agency founder David Ogilvy, one of advertisings greatest, most eloquent and most effective practitioners posed. Advertising is a business of words, but advertising agencies are infested with men and women who cannot write. ... They are as helpless as deaf mutes on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera. Mr. Ogilvy understood that commerce is communication. The money is in the message. And copywriting is not like penning articles or press releases or memos or emails, and certainly its different from creating novels and short stories and poetry. It is a specialized discipline, with its own rules, tips, tricks and techniques. You wouldnt want your foot doctor performing brain surgery, no matter how accomplished he or she is in that field. Nor can general writing ability serve as a substitute for the very specific skill of copywriting. If general business writing has to be effective, copywriting has to be more so. A companys sales and, ergo, profits hang in the balance. So the writing must generate response and produce quantifiable results. It is the burden of the copy to make sure your potential understand exactly what it is your business has to offer, how it benefits them, why they should patronize your business above your competitors, how those who are interested can easily contact you for more information or to make a purchase. Failure to do so means youre losing business and money. And these principles carry over directly into the online world. If anything, web copy has to be even more compelling, briefer and more precise, since the attention span of a surfer is generally going to be less than a print reader. You have somewhere around seven seconds to capture a visitors attention before he or she decides to stay or move on. Fortunately, effective business writing skills can be learned. (Which is why, as the Times article noted, professional writers, writing coaches and consultants are in high demand. Even CEOs are knocking on their doors.) Dont be a victim of this pandemic. What follows are three actions you can take to improve your own personal writing skills. They work. I know because Ive used them myself.The unavoidable elementThere is an adage that has existed since before 1900 that has been erroneously attributed to numerous professional golfers. While the origin of the quote is suspect, its veracity is not: The more you practice, the luckier you get. There is simply no substitute for practice when it comes to effective writing. If you work out with weights for 15 minutes a day over the course of 10 years, youre gonna get muscles, said novelist Stephen King. If you write for an hour and a half a day for 10 years, youre gonna turn into a good writer. Dont let Mr. Kings logistics frighten you. No one expects a non-writer to churn out as much volume or for as long a period of time per day as he does, professional that he is. Heres an exercise thats not so highpressure, and certainly within anyones ability: Simply set aside a certain amount of writing to do every day. You can do it by volume (one paragraph or two pages), or by time (writing for 15 minutes or a half-hour). While I agree with the adage practice makes perfect, I offer that advice with reservation. You have to know the difference between good writing and bad, between what works and what doesnt usually by learning from seasoned professionals. Dan Kennedy, one of the top copywriters and marketing experts in the nation, tells the story of how he was out on the golf course with a far more experienced player. After numerous failed attempts to hit the ball properly, he said to his friend, I guess I just need to practice more. To which his friend replied, Not if you practice that swing. Reams of research have been conducted on what copywriting techniques are more effective, and which will most assuredly end in failure. You wouldnt hop in to a soccer game and start tossing the ball around with your hands. In the same way, you shouldnt attempt to write copy if you dont know the rules of what works. You have to know the rules before you can break them and you only break them for a solid logical reason. The point is: Practicing writing can possibly be helpful. Practicing writing correctly is definitely invaluable. But how do you learn the rules?Your big, fat Greek educationIn the days of Aristotle, students would sit at the feet of the great philosophers, to learn of their wisdom. That system of learning still works today. There are numerous seminars and workshops available from knowledgeable experts. Some are live, sure, but many are recorded. You can even ingest digital versions in your spare time while driving (instead of listening to just music) or waiting in a doctors office, for example (another bit of advice from Stephen King). This brings me to my second suggestion: Read books about improving your business writing. I know, I know there are a ton of em, and its hard to determine which to choose from. Well, here are just a few that have earned their place near the top of my list, each one a fine place to start:The Everything Guide to Writing Copy by Steve Slaunwhite (Adams Media). An excellent entry-level introduction to the craft of writing effective copy. The author explains how to tackle a wide variety of writing projects, and does so in an engaging, easy-to-read manner. One of my favorite chapters is The Copywriters Bag of Tricks, a brief collection of somewhat more advanced techniques, made simple. Mr. Slaunwhite also maintains a website solely for educating freelance and in-house copywriters (, a testament to his impeccable abilities and experience. By the way, his course Secrets of Writing High-Performance Business-to-Business Copy for American Writers & Artist Inc. (AWAIonline. com) is indispensable for anyone who wants to specialize in this field. Writing Copy for Dummies by Jonathan Kranz (Wiley Publishing). While Im no dummy (hey, Ive won state, national and international awards for my writing for myself or for my clients so I must know at least a little something), that doesnt stop me from reaching for this book on occasion. Its one of the most in-depth beginners texts for anyone whos tasked with writing ads, direct response materials or other marketing collateral. However, its also a great refresher for experts, and even touches on the slippery subject of branding with extraordinary simplicity and clarity.The Copywriters Handbook Third Edition by Robert W. Bly (Owl B ooks). Ill be frank with you: Bob Bly is my copywriting hero. You will not find a more knowledgeable expert or exceptional teacher than he. (Hes the reason I became a freelance copywriter myself, after attending a series of seminars he gave in Orlando in 1989 for the Florida Freelance Writers Association.) This volume is considered the seminal classic in the field. (The original edition was even hailed by David Ogilvy himself.) A little more in-depth than Kranzs book, its an excellent resource youll also want to keep close by on your desk. (My copy is dog-eared, underlined and highlighted to the hilt if thats any indication of how useful I find it.) Make sure you get the revised and expanded third edition, as Mr. Bly has added winning techniques for electronic media.On the Art of Writing Copy Fourth Edition by Herschell Gordon Lewis (Racom Communications). You have to understand that Mr. Lewis is a true oldschool legend in the industry. This guys been around the block. In this book, he establishes himself as probably the snarkiest, most direct, no-nonsense copywriter around. With razor-sharp insight, he slices through the B.S. and demonstrates (through copious real-world examples) the bad and the exceptional. This is easily the most advanced volume of the ones Ive mentioned, but I included it because youll find it difficult to come across another book that teaches you to look so critically at the thinking behind an ad campaign or piece of copy. You cant possibly ingest the principles in these pages and not see your own efforts in a new, more analytical light. Talk is cheapMy third and final suggestion for improving at the craft of writing may surprise you: Talk about it. That is, share ideas and observations with other copywriters. One of my copywriter friends is part of a peer review group in which members critique one anothers copy to make it more effective. If you cant find such an alliance that works for you, consider starting your own. If you have to write a direct mail piece, find someone else whose skills you respect, with whom you can study examples of direct marketing campaigns that generated an exceptional response, then discuss them. Talk about the language, word use, sentence structure, appeal, hook, offer all the elements that contributed to their success. Then determine how to apply those principles to the project at hand. This is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your own writing and it doesnt cost a dime.Fix that leaking bucket of $$$The bad news is: Theres no easy way to write more effectively. The good news is that its worth the effort. Writing is such a critical element of your business, you cant afford to ignore it. Learning to write copy (or having a professional do it for you) is not an expense its an investment that will pay for itself many times over. If corporate America is willing to pay billions of dollars to improve writing, you know it has to be important. If your websites, ads, brochures, direct response letters, etc. are poorly written, you may still get some response, but youre going to be leaving money on the table a lot of it. Learn to write better and put those bucks in your cash register instead. Bob Massey is the editor of the Charlotte County edition of Florida Weekly. He has been a professional freelance copywriter and ad agency director with experience creating high-impact copy both online and offline.

B10 |WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2016WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM REAL ESTATEFLORIDA WEEKLYReal estate market remains balanced in second quarterAs Collier Countys resale housing inventory levels continue to outpace last years levels, median closed sale prices for homes over $300,000 remain fairly unchanged. Several brokers who recently analyzed the second quarter and June 2016 Market Reports released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS, which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island), believe the second quarter real estate markets behavior is reminiscent of how the local housing market behaved in 2003. During the recession we experienced a dramatic increase in inventory, particularly in properties below $300,000, said Mike Hughes, vice president and general manager for Downing-Frye Realty, Inc., This was then followed by several years of high volume sales, mostly in that $300,000 and below segment of the market. But before all that, from 2000 to 2003, we were in a normal real estate market. This summer feels a lot like that time again. Mr. Hughes added that, last year was a near record year for closings. So, if you look at the decrease in closed sales for this years second quarter and compare it to last years second quarter closed sales, its not really a fair comparison. Cindy Carroll, with the real estate appraisal and consultancy firm Carroll & Carroll, Inc. said, Sellers who anticipated a continued increase in the value of their homes are getting a dose of new reality. The report showed virtually no increase in closed sale prices in the second quarter versus the first quarter so sellers need to reset their thinking because we have entered a new cycle that looks a lot more like where we were in 2003 and 2004. Kathy Zorn, broker/owner, Florida Home Realty, echoed Ms. Carrolls sentiment, There are many owners who purchased short sales or foreclosures and dont have to sell, so they are willing to hold out for a price they want. This mindset also applies to some investors who would rather collect rent than sell at todays prices. Bill Poteet, owner and broker at Poteet Properties, said that despite tourism being down this summer and some buyers postponing a purchase until there is more economic certainty, we are moving property because the June report showed the average days on market is about 3 months and that hasnt changed from a year ago when we didnt have as much inventory. The NABOR second quarter 2016 market report provides comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges, and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Work begins on Amenity Center at Maple RidgePeninsula Engineering, a division of Barron Collier Companies, reported that the initial permitting is underway on the new Amenity Center for Maple Ridge at Ave Maria, a single-family neighborhood built by CC Homes. The 12,000-squarefoot amenity center will be exclusive to residents of Maple Ridge and will showcase Santa-Barbara inspired architecture combining indoor/outdoor activities and relaxation such as resort and Olympicsized lap pool, cabanas, fitness center, sports courts, playground, card rooms, activities room, and billiard room. Construction on the center is anticipated to begin in the fall of 2016. Additionally, in the town of Ave Maria, Peninsula Engineering announced the completion of Phases 1 and 2 in Maple Ridge at Ave Maria, with homebuilding in Phase 3 underway. Phase 4 land development is underway, and homebuilding there will begin soon. Peninsula Engineering has completed Phase 1 of Coquina at Maple Ridge and now working on Phase 2. The entire Maple Ridge Reserve Phase 1 infrastructure is completed and residential construction is currently underway. Peninsula Engineering continues work on the extension of Anthem Parkway, a 6,700-foot-long roadway winding from north to south within the community. This parkway extension is currently under construction and anticipated completion by end of 2016. COURTESY PHOTOSAn artists rendering of the new Amenity Center at Maple Ridge in Ave Maria.

But it wasnt until 1990, after he retired from a long and satisfying career, that Mr. Moseley turned his talents toward landscape painting and into a second career that has blossomed into numerous awards, exhibitions, teaching opportunities and a whole lot of gratification. Art lovers can see the fruits of his labor in an exhibit titled Here and There at the Marco Island Historical Museum Aug. 2-Oct. 29 In sixth grade, I knew I wanted to be an architect because I loved to draw things, Mr. Moseley says. I loved to paint and I loved to draw, so I combined the two and came up with architecture. His education at Virginia Tech required regular freehand drawing classes and he never totally gave up on his artistic pursuits throughout his 40-year professional career. Once he retired though, he dedicated himself to refining his Impressionistic landscapes by taking a variety of artist-led workshops throughout the country. It was just a pleasurable pastime, really, he says. I didnt count on it as a money-making venture. Now 86 years old and almost 30 years into his second career, Mr. Moseley is recognized throughout the United State and has received more than 100 awards for his work. His paintings are included in corporate and private collections throughout the country and his work represented by several galleries Moseley finds inspiration here and thereCOURTESY PHOTOMagical Cove Goodland Docks MOSELEY SEE MOSELEY, C5


C2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY 1-800-591-DERM | RiverchaseDermatology.comWelcomeHeather E. Pontasch, M.D., FAADBoard Certied DermatologyNow accepting new patients.Specializing in Medical and Pediatric Dermatology, Dermatologic Surgery, Laser Treatments and Cosmetic Dermatology DOWNTOWN NAPLES & MARCO ISLAND FLORIDA WRITERSMoney laundering, revenge, romance drive business-savvy novel Entangled by Mark Dossey. CreateSpace. 316 pages. Trade paperback, $14.99; Kindle e-book, $3.99.This new title continues the saga of Ally Kendall that debuted in 2014 with XC97. The two titles now comprise Mark Dosseys Ally Kendall Series. Set in the corporate world, they provide special interest to those readers interested in business issues. In addition, Entangled gives new life to a murder mystery once thought resolved. In the earlier novel, Zurich-based Prestige Pharmaceuticals took over the much smaller Newark-based Integra, allowing the Integra-developed cancer drug XC97 to gain wide distribution quickly. A romance between Ally and Stephan Egbert, sole owner of Prestige Pharma, became red hot. Ally is the chief PR officer for the both companies, though originally an Integra executive. A few years later, what has been going smoothly begins to fall apart on both business and personal levels. Ally questions the depth of her love for Stephan, whose hermitlike commitment to his company signals his lifestyle inflexibility. Sex is great, but Ally wonders if thats all there is. At 32, shes contemplating a marriage with children, but this seems unlikely with Stephan. And shed rather be living full-time in the U.S., not a change that seems possible for Stephan. Planning to cool the relationship, she is frank about this with Stephan, and he is crushed by her news. Stephan is also crushed by an explosion that brings down his huge estate, leaving him seriously injured and suddenly homeless. Shortly before, the dazzling headquarters of Prestige had been demolished by what looked like a terrorist attack. One mystery has to do with the cause of the attacks and the person or persons behind them. There is no doubt that they are linked. However, at first its more of a mystery for the characters; readers witness the commission of the monstrous deeds. They seem to be acts of revenge committed by someone alert to the shady history of Prestige, once run by Stephans father. The elder Egbert kept its balance sheet impressive by running a massive money laundering operation through it. Now the company is impoverished and disgraced another blow to Stephan, who was entirely innocent of his fathers criminal behavior. The game is afoot to settle old scores, and much of the plotting has to do with following the schemes and actions of relatively minor characters. The case of who murdered the Integra founder is reopened, and the events in Newark and Zurich become woven together. As law enforcement agencies do their work, the Integra leader, Ralph Wells, works on stabilizing that company, preparing to make it viable when independent of floundering Prestige. Among the problems he solves is finding the necessary land and financing to grown sufficient quantities of a key ingredient: chamomile. He also arranges to have processing facilities built. This complicated effort exemplifies the engaging business dimensions of the novel. Mr. Dossey keeps us interested by moving back and forth between the business crisis and the crisis in personal relationships. Ally experiments, testing her connection to Stephan by enjoying the attentions of a potential suitor. The author handles his portrait of Allys emotional ups and downs with authority, building the romantic mystery to a higher and higher pitch of suspense. For all its strengths Entangled invites us to stumble over many misshaped sentences. A good (or bad) example is: Delivered in cuffs, DI Leo Brettenden signed for the body. No, the DI did not sign anything while wearing cuffs. Nor was he delivered. Too many of these, and too many of this other ghastly formulation, which is still jarring to diehards like me even though found more and more in print: Im here to try and understand . We once all wrote to try to understand, and I wish English teachers were not giving up on the structure that makes sense. Both strands of the story take us out of Newark and Zurich to other well-drawn settings. Ally visits Southwest Florida for business (a conference in Tampa) and pleasure (relaxation on Boca Grande). Ralph visits the Lake Okeechobee area on his hunt for agricultural land. Two Newark policemen take a trip to investigate in Florida. The several Florida locations are well informed by the authors first-hand familiarity with the Sunshine State. He lives and writes in Punta Gorda. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

Continuing on the first Monday of every month through Feb. 6, the popular event invites indie film enthusiasts to comment on submissions from all over the world that are being considered for inclusion in the seventh annual Fort Myers Film Festival to be held March 8-12, 2017. Dialogue is key among T.G.I.M. participants. Some people love particular entries. Other people could not hate them more. But as long as audience members are not ambivalent, Film Festival Director Eric Raddatz and FMff Producer Melissa Tschari DeHaven regard a screening as successful. Thats because the objective of T.G.I.M. is to get people thinking, talking and engaging in a respectful (albeit sometimes spirited) exchange of ideas that help participants to define and refine how they feel about a wide range of political, social and personal issues. Last season, for example, T.G.I.Ms celebrity judges and audiences took advantage of the opportunity to preview and critique films with storylines that are as unpretentious as they are varied, and even where the running times are measured in mere minutes, the films can give rise to deep and complex commentary on people, life and the human condition. You dont need to be a producer, director or actor to have an opinion, and what you think is just as valued and important as what T.G.I.M.s celebrity judges may espouse. The Aug. 1 T.G.I.M. judges are Kaycie Lee, Dillon Dillodonis and Justin Verely. The musical guest is Gabrielle Macafee, with host Mr. Raddatz and co-host Ms. DeHaven. Come get a view of how judges rate submissions for the festival, and have a say whether they should make final programming. Happy hour starts at 6 p.m. The show begins at 7 p.m. For more information about T.G.I.M. and the Fort Myers Film Festival, see TOM HALL / COURTESY OF THE FORT MYERS FILM FESTIVAL Undistributed independent films from all over the world are screened with audiences and judges weighing in on their artistic, cultural and societal significance at T.G.I.M.


C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYto find that I have painted places they know and love, he says. And since his travels span so many years, many of his works depict these places before condos lined the beaches, for example, or when colorful old boats filled working ports. Getting in early was a way to glorify the place in a more soulful time, the artist says. His desire to travel was sparked in Mr. Arsenaults childhood when his Uncle Joe requested his presence at a family reunion. Both knew it was unlikely they would see each other again, and Joe had one piece of advice: Take every opportunity to travel. It was the best advice I ever had, he says. From that point on, even if it was just a ride across town, you never know if theres a rainbow or a sunset. The fact is, dont put it off. So he combined his two life goals, to travel and paint, and set off with little money to paint his way across the globe. It worked. By dint of hard work and luck, he has traveled extensively through Asia, the Middle East, Europe, South Pacific and more. Occasionally, he would find a hidden gem, like Vietnam right after President Bill Clinton lifted the trade embargo in 1994. He went to Vietnam on the advice of the landlord of the first cruise ship to land there. He got to see it when it was still locked away, he says. And he came back and said, Paul, you have to go there before they screw it up. So Mr. Arsenault wrangled some fellow artists to make the adventure together. They group sold 25 of its paintings when the trip concluded. This and other anecdotes, like capturing small boat racing in Maine or the circumstances under which he found the worlds most perfect beach, will be revealed to guests at his talks. While Mr. Arsenault is the only featured artist in the exhibit who will share his stories, Armchair Travels visitors will also enjoy photographs of national parks by Clyde Butcher and island-themed work by impressionist James Kerr. The exhibit remains in place through August. ARTFULFrom page 1 Oman Boat Building Commissioned by a Naples client to paint the creeks of Dubai, Mr. Arsenault hired a personal guide and found himself in Oman. After doing his homework, he learned that the one place he had to visit in the whole Arabian Peninsula was the strategically fortunate seaside sultanate with a rich and varied culture. Oman has this magnificent variety of landscape, he says. I required (the guide) to take me to these special places and landmarks that I found in the picture books. It was magnificent to be immersed in this incredible landscape and culture in such a concentrated way. He came upon people building dhows, a traditional type of sailing vessel used in the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean, in the same way theyve been doing it for millennia. The boat building is a remarkable thing to be able to see, because it looks like it could have been the same view 2,000 years ago, he says. I grew up in a harbor town and always appreciated the waterfront. Theres something soulful about a community with a working ports. Theyve had (the dhows) since before Sinbad. Its where Sinbads boat could have been built. Acadia National Park The Arsenaults came to Acadia National Park in Maine in a roundabout way that started when Mr. Arsenault was commissioned to do a few paintings of the reconstructed Hermione, the wartime frigate that transported the Marquis de Lafayette to America in 1780. Hamoa Beach, Maui After coming off a painting trip of the South Pacific in search of the perfect shoreline, Mr. Arsenault found it at Hamoa Beach in Hana Bay in Maui, shortly after he proposed to his now wife, Eileen. Id been on a four-month expedition throughout the South Pacific looking for the great beach, here it is in the States, he says. He and Eileen ended up buying a beach house on Hana Bay. It was magical, he says.

Best Family F Best of the Gulf s ARTS COMMENTARYColoring outside the lines with very adult coloring booksColoring books have always been a thing with the preschool set. But now adults are learning the joys of coloring, too. Theres something pleasantly stupefying about picking up a crayon and coloring within the lines. Moms and dads, grandparents and even babysitters everywhere have discovered this while joining a little one whos contently coloring Personally, Ive never been one for staying within the lines. First of all, its not that fun. And its not too creative. I remember coloring when I was 3 years old. An older British woman, a friend of my moms, was babysitting me at the time. I remember a picture of a fire engine, in thick black outlines. Everyone colors their fire engines red, I told her. Im going to color mine green! Um hmm, thats nice, dearie, she replied. She must have thought I was either a simpleton or colorblind. I hope that fire engine never had to put out any fires in a forest itd be completely camouflaged. Of course, I lived in the city, and anything green would stand out among all that gray as much as red would. When I was growing up, the New York papers would hold coloring contests. Youd color the picture, cut it out, fill out the form with your name and address and age, and send it in. How quaint that must seem now. But I was thrilled to actually win a prize with my coloring a perpetual calendar in the shape of a flattened globe of the world. Still have it. But now, suddenly, grown-ups everywhere are coloring. And theres an explosion of coloring books directed towards their interests. Say goodbye to My Little Pony and Minions. Now there are coloring books for adults, with black outlined cats, butterflies and flower patterns. There are religious-themed coloring books: Color the Gospels and Color the Psalms, for example. Books based on movie and TV shows are getting into the act too: Ive seen coloring books for Dr. Who, Harry Potter and Game of Thrones. But the ones that have been grabbing my attention lately arent ones Ive seen in local chain bookstores and supermarkets. I stumbled upon them online, and the more I looked into it, the more I found an entire universe of coloring books Ive never seen before. Lets put it this way: if coloring books were music, the adult coloring books Ive seen up to this point were easy-listening music. But the ones that have piqued my interest online are punk rock and raucous rock n roll. One series takes a realistic look at various professions nursing, teaching, motherhood. # Nurselife is subtitled A Snarky Adult Coloring Book. It contains over 30 sayings, each one contained within a flower border: Florence Nightingale is my homegirl is probably the least snarky one in the book. Others say: Behind every stable, well-adjusted nurse is a patient waiting to change that before the shift is over, Dont confuse your Google search with my nursing degree and You cant fix stupid but you can sedate it. And, some more medical humor: The way to a mans heart is through his left anterolateral thoracotomy. And, as this is a year when we elect a new president, there are various coloring books about the candidates. Although theyre no longer in the running, you can still find coloring books about Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz. Theres Hilary: The Coloring Book, which has multiple Hilary Clintons on the cover, with a quartet of them wearing different-hued pant suits. It tells her history from her birth in Chicago to first lady to secretary of state to presidential candidate. And the last page shows her being sworn in as president, though the text for that image starts out, Who knows how things will go? (The coloring book, by the way, was created by a Canadian and a Brit.) And, though she wasnt picked to be a vice presidential running mate, theres also Elizabeth Warren: The Peoples Warrior Fighting Against the Overwhelming Power of BIG MONEY in America Political Cartoon Coloring Book. The images are disappointing, because, as the title says, theyre cartoons, and very amateurish ones at that. And I found The Ruth Bader Ginsburg Coloring Book: A Tribute to the Always Colorful and Often Inspiring Life of the Supreme Court Justice Known as RBG. Its a strange book, on one page comparing her to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and on another mentioning that she and fellow justice Antonin Scalia were extras and performed in full costume in the opera Ariadne auf Naxo. But the most entertaining by far has to be The Trump Coloring Book, which shows Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in a Superman outfit (with a T, instead of an S, of course,) standing with his hands on his hips on a rooftop. The books enormously clever, because it appeals to Trump-haters and Trump devotees both. If you believe Mr. Trumps a great man wholl fix our country and make America great again, then youll love the images of Trump in the oval office, or the one with his face on Mt. Rushmore, or the picture of him as Uncle Sam. But, if you think hes a narcissistic blowhard, then youll laugh at the images of him as Washington crossing the Potomac, his face replacing all four Beatles in the iconic Abbey Road photograph, or Mr. Trump as Elvis, as John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever, and as Willy Wonka. Are you for or against? Its up to you! Nows your chance to show The Donald in his true colors! says the back cover. And, in big, yellow-and-red comic book colors, it declares, Lets make coloring great again! And then there are an entire series of swearing coloring books. If youre easily offended, you may want to skip the next paragraph or two, as the airs about to turn very blue. (We had to put in a special request to the editors to buy more asterisks this week just to write this column!) There are coloring books called Scr*w You Im Coloring, F*ck Off, Im Coloring! Make Life Your B*tch, Chill the F*ck Out, Release Your Anger: An Adult Coloring Book with 40 Swear Words to Color, I Dont Give a Damn Coloring Book, Swearing Coloring Book Fifty Shades of Bullsh*t, I Love to F*cking Color And Relax With My Swear Word Adult Coloring Book and The Vulgar Offensive Very Adult Coloring Book: For Mature Audiences. If anything will convince you that coloring books are not just for the very young anymore, that collection of cursing coloring books will. Dammit!

CONTRACT BRIDGESearch for the missing queen BY STEVE BECKERA recurring problem for declarer is to decide which way to finesse for a queen when the finesse can be taken in either direction. The solution is rarely a matter of pure guesswork. There are nearly always clues that point to a winning solution. The clues come from the bidding or from the plays that precede the moment of decision. In some cases, the finesse can be taken with absolute assurance that it will win; in others, there is only a probability that it will win. South's problem in today's hand is to guess which way to take the heart finesse. After he ruffs the third round of clubs, he cashes the A-K of trumps and, after the spades luckily divide 2-2, takes a diamond finesse, losing to the king. East returns a diamond to dummy's jack, and South must now decide how to play the hearts. First, as a matter of good technique, he cashes the ace of diamonds to learn more about the adverse distribution. After both opponents follow suit, all South knows about their distribution is that they each had two spades and also at least three clubs and three diamonds. This doesn't help much, so South starts looking for further enlightenment. When he considers the high cards each opponent has shown up with, he encounters a significant clue. To this point, East has turned up with the A-K of clubs, jack of spades and king of diamonds. East is therefore very unlikely to have the queen of hearts, since he almost surely would not have passed originally with 13 high-card points. Accordingly, declarer places the queen of hearts with West, takes the appropriate finesse and so makes the contract.

FILM CAPSULESLights Out (Teresa Palmer, Gabriel Bateman, Maria Bello) Rebecca (Ms. Palmer) and her little stepbrother Martin (Mr. Bateman) are tormented by a demon that can only move in the dark. The scares are legit, performances are fine and the story is plausible. Its a pretty darn good horror movie. Rated PG-13.The Infiltrator (Bryan Cranston, Diane Kruger, Benjamin Bratt) In the 1980s, U.S. Customs Agent Bob Mazur (Mr. Cranston) goes undercover as a money launderer for the Medellin drug cartel. Nicely directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) and solid performances all around, particularly from Cranston. Rated R.Hunt For The Wilderpeople (Sam Neill, Julian Dennison, Rachel House) After his foster mother dies, an orphan (Mr. Dennison) goes on the lam with his uncle (Mr. Neill) in the New Zealand woods. Its beautifully shot, and subtly hilarious from start to finish. Rated PG-13.Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (Zac Efron, Adam Devin, Anna Kendrick) Irresponsible idiots Mike (Mr. Devine) and Dave (Mr. Efron) ruin all their familys functions, so for their sisters wedding theyre forced to bring nice, respectable dates. Enter Tatiana (Aubrey Plaza) and Alice (Ms. Kendrick), who are anything but. Its every bit as crass, fun and hilarious and you expect. Rated RThe BFG (Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Bill Hader) A London orphan (Ms. Barnhill) is taken to giant country, where she helps a Big Friendly Giant (Mr. Rylance) take down the bullies who pick on him. It lacks narrative thrust and the characters are underdeveloped, but visually the film is stellar. Rated PG.Our Kind of Traitor (Ewan McGregor, Naomie Harris, Stellan Skarsgard) A Russian Mafia money launderer (Mr. Skarsgard) asks a British man (Mr. McGregor) for help in reaching out to MI6. Although it has the makings of a taut espionage thriller, it disappoints on almost all levels. Based on the novel of the same name by John Le Carre. Rated R.De Palma (Brian De Palma) Filmmaker Brian De Palma discusses his approach to filmmaking and shares anecdotes from all of his movies (Carrie, Scarface, The Untouchables, Mission: Impossible). Film geeks will love it, but it might not be accessible to a mainstream audience. Rated R. Central Intelligence (Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Amy Ryan) A tame accountant (Mr. Hart) is forced to team up with an eccentric CIA agent (Mr. Johnson) to stop the sale of encrypted satellite codes. Its an unfunny, horrid slog of a movie thats woefully void of laughs, decent action and (contrary to its title) intelligence. Rated PG-13. Now You See Me 2 (Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Daniel Radcliffe) The Four Horsemen (Mr. Harrelson, Mr. Eisenberg, etc.) magicians are kidnapped by a tech magnate (Mr. Radcliffe) and forced to steal a valuable computer chip. Its clever and enjoyable; the fact that its largely far-fetched and unrealistic is part of its charm. Rated PG-13.Maggies Plan (Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke, Julianne Moore) Maggie (Ms. Gerwig) falls in love with and marries John (Mr. Hawke), only to realize she made a horrible mistake and needs to reunite him with his ex-wife (Ms. Moore). Its a clever premise with enough laughs and brutal honesty to make it solid entertainment. Rated R.Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (Andy Samberg, Sarah Silverman, Imogen Poots) Pop star Conner4Real (Mr. Samberg) strikes out with his second solo album, sending his life and career into a tailspin. Its a laugh riot from start to finish that dares to satirize pop culture and the idol worship of celebrities. Rated R.X-Men: Apocalypse (James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac) Prof. X (Mr. McAvoy) and Mystique (Ms. Lawrence) lead the X-Men against the worlds first and most powerful mutant, Apocalypse (Mr. Isaac). The villain is boring, and the ample visual effects dont make up for the flawed story. Rated PG-13.

LATEST FILMSBad MomsIs it worth $10? YesBad Moms is catharsis for all the tired, overworked and overstressed moms out there, and darn funny at that. This is the kind of movie that only comes once or twice a year and is a perfect excuse for ladies to get together, perhaps enjoy a glass of wine (or two) beforehand, and laugh hysterically at whats on screen, because unlike most comedies, this time its for them. Amy (Mila Kunis) is tired of being supermom. Her husband Mike (David Walton) is a deadbeat, and her kids Dylan (Emjay Anthony) and Jane (Oona Laurence) are teenagers and therefore impossible to please. Her boss (Clark Duke) doesnt appreciate her, she doesnt have time to eat, her dog is sick and she cant fathom all the ingredients shes not allowed to use for the PTA bake sale. Shes a mess, but more importantly she has every right to be a mess. So she quits the PTA. Quits her job. When she finds out her husband is having an Internet affair, she kicks him out. She takes control of her life, and good for her. Friends Kiki (Kristen Bell) and Carla (Kathryn Hahn) join her in rebelling against this system that demands perfect parents and students, and its liberating. Their enemies are the uptight PTA moms (Christina Applegate, Jada Pinkett Smith and Annie Mumolo) who dont tolerate non-conformity. Writer/directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore also wrote The Hangover movies, so they know exactly what theyre doing in terms of delivering laughs. The humor here isnt gross, but it is vulgar, comfortably eschewing notions of the feminine mystique for candid conversations about male anatomy, hating kids baseball games and mom bras. Hahn gets the biggest laughs because her character is the most outrageous, but Kunis is a solid lead and all the supporting characters get moments to shine. Most of the humor is verbal, but Bad Moms does have rowdy moments, including a frat-style party for PTA moms with cheap wine and a trip to the grocery store that gets very, very messy. Add in a fun pop soundtrack and youre grinning from ear to ear. Best of all, it feels honest. At one point Amy shares her favorite mom fantasy, which is simply having a quiet breakfast by herself no kids to worry about, or husband to tell what he needs to do to. Whats more Amy, Kiki and Carla do not shy away from what must be true of raising children: That theyll drive you crazy and you usually cant win no matter what you do, and sometimes you even think theyre losers or misfits or straight-up weirdoes, but darn it, you love them more than anything else in the world. Bad Moms plays out in predictable ways, and that couldnt be more fitting: It means the film is flawed and imperfect, just like the moms it depicts and just like we all are. And you know what? Thats OK. Sometimes you need a good laugh to be reminded of that. dan >> As the end credits begin each of the principal actresses sits with her mother and shares stories.

C16 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY KOVEL: ANTIQUESItems created by famous industrial designers popular with collectors BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELMany artists dont create just pictures or sculptures. They make furniture, jewelry, dinnerware or even kitchen tools and toys. In the 1920s and s, a new title came into use for these multitalented artists: industrial designer. These artists redesigned existing large machines like trains or trucks as well as small household goods like telephones and clocks. The result was better-looking objects that were less expensive to make. Most collectors today dont have space in their homes for the largest industrial machines, but they can find examples of smaller decorative items designed and made by these famous men. A few names to look for are Russel Wright (dinnerware, furniture, aluminum), Henry Teague (Kodak camera), Henry Dreyfuss (telephone), Viktor Schreckengost (Cowan pottery, pedal cars, dinnerware) and Bjorn Wiinblad (posters, furniture, dinnerware, tapestries, an animated film). At a Rago auction in Lambertville, N.J., a 1970s Wiinblad table and six matching chairs sold for $1,875. The black lacquered pieces each had a different colorful modern design. The set is a large example of Mr. Wiinblads talent. His ashtrays and dishes decorated with drawings of round-faced people in pseudo 19th-century clothes and often surrounded by vines, floral wreaths and trees can be found online and in shops for less than $50. Q: I have a platter and a pitcher that my grandfather brought back from England at the end of World War I. They both have Alhambra stamped on the back with what looks like a flying crown just about it. My father told me the trim is 24-karat gold. I never had the pieces appraised. Can you help? A: The Alhambra pattern was made by several different porcelain manufacturers, mostly in Austria, in the late 1890s to early 1900s. Alhambra decoration was inspired by Moorish designs of Grenada, Spain, and consists of geometric patterns ornamented with scrolls and gold trim. (Gold leaf is made in a wide range of colors and karats. Leaf made from 100 percent gold is 24 karat, so its entirely likely the trim on your pieces is 24K.) Pieces were often decorated by one company on blanks bought from other companies. Your platter and pitcher are worth $150 to $300 apiece. Q: I found four vintage baseball cards glued to the bottom of a dresser I bought at an estate sale. The players are Pete Appleton, Line Drive Nelson, Hank Greenberg and Red Kress. Im not a collector. Are they worth anything? A: Your baseball cards are part of the 1940 set by Play Ball and issued by Gum, Inc., a Philadelphia company that made Blony bubble gum. It was the largest bubble-gum producer in the United States. Play Ball cards were included with the gum from 1929-41. The 1940 set included 240 different cards. In 1948 Gum Inc. became Bowman, which was bought by Topps Chewing Gum in 1956. Your cards are of little value because they were glued to the dresser and are in poor condition. In poor condition, cards for Appleton, Kress and Nelson are worth about 5$. Hank Greenbergs card is worth more $30 in good condition, about $15 in poor condition because hes in the Hall of Fame. Q: Several years ago my father-in-law gave me a No. 55 Stanley Patent Universal Plane Set, made for making wood molding by hand. Its complete in the original box with all the plane parts and cutting blades. Does it have any value? Id like to donate it to a woodwork museum in Florida, where I live. A: The Stanley No. 55 plane was made from 1897-1963. It has an adjustable body made of nickel-plated cast iron and a rosewood handle and fences. It came with 55 standard cutters, which fit into four boxes. A No. 55 set like your with four boxes of cutters sold for $595 in recent years. You might be able to sell it at a tool show. Contact the Midwest Tool Collectors Association at mwtca. org for information about tool meets in your area. Tip: Never use mending tape or transparent tape on a book.

The spaces feel narrow and confined. Theres too much mirror. The floral wallpaper is old-fashioned, and the cabinetry is clunky. And here is the confident response from Jinx McDonald Interior Designs to a client on the bay side of Gulf Shore Boulevard with one such dated mess: Weve got this! This couple has had an adventurous life traveling throughout the globe and wanted to bring a bit of that French/ Asian Colonial look to their new Naples condo. It would require a lot more that a new rug and fresh paint. The team at Jinx McDonald Interior Designs needed to move walls, rip out floors, add and update trim work, reconfigure closets and add cabinetry, built-in shelving and a new kitchen island. This was a true transformation from old to new. The tired trend of using mirrored walls to create the illusion of more space is officially gone for good. Instead, todays designers and builders are using larger windows, expansive sliding doors, higher ceilings and lighter paint colors for even better results. Starting with all the floors, it was clear that the carpeting throughout and the linoleum kitchen floor were of course, not desirable. A new mix of light and dark, the updated flooring is a combination of a wool blend sisal used wall-towall in the main living areas, a beautiful dark, wire-brushed hardwood in the kitchen and refreshed tile in the bathrooms. This client knew what they wanted, explains Minka McDonald, designer and daughter of founder Jinx McDonald. They spent years abroad in Hong Kong, and wanted to bring a bit of that old world Colonial style to Naples. The kitchen was perhaps the most dramatic result of the teams efforts. The before is the traditional galley design with a narrow footprint and very little prep/work space. By removing the entire wall on which the range was originally placed, Ms. McDonald was able to create the open floor plan that most homeowners want today. The new island provides tremendous storage as well as a new workspace that allows the hosts to stay connected with their guests. All new custom cabinetry and countertops in bright white, and transitional pendant light fixtures that tie in to the main fixture in the dining room, add the perfect touches to the f inal great room mixed-use space. Ms. McDonald brought a bold color palette of java, navy, white and red throughout. A focal point is the rich background created by the metallicbacked woven Phillip Jeffries wallpaper used in the living room and breakfast room. Fans and hardware all got an update and were selected to keep in line with the Colonial Asian style. Overall the space feels bigger, brighter and much more open, Ms. McDonald says. And it has the elegant, old world styling the couple so desired.

Right: Removing the wall between the kitchen and living room transformed the old galley kitchen and completely opened up the condo. Crisp white cabinetry, Carrara quartz countertops and a continuous backsplash assist in enlarging the space.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries from previous restaurant reviews: 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. Like Fuji, it offers great stellar sushi plus cooked Thai and Japanese dishes. Try any of the dozen yakitori items, priced by the skewer, and dishes like 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. Beer and wine served. Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed July 2014 Coastal Peruvian Seafood & Grill, 5477 Airport-Pulling Road N., Naples; 631-6943 This lovely restaurant provides a refreshing space in which to dine on exceptionally good food. Owners Chris and Fabiola Santos are hospitable and helpful as they introduce guests to their menu. Of the various ceviche variations, we enjoyed the Ceviche 200 Miles, a sprightly blend of shrimp, squid, mussels, fish, red onions, sweet potato and corn that had a bite but wasnt fiery hot. Marina sliders held fried red snapper fillets topped with aji amarillo-pineapple chimichurri on firm, yeasty minibuns. The Poseidon Fest was a montage of seafood cooked in the restaurants Josper oven, which renders proteins crisp outside, juicy within. And the Savage Tacu Tacu was a great rendition of rice and lentil pancakes with a tender skirt steak and sweet plantains. Beer and wine served. Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed January 2016 Figs Grille, 25987 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 390-1700 Four years after a memorable debut, Figs still upholds a high level of quality in food and service undoubtedly thanks to the impeccable standards of chefowner Sam Tadros. Those whove only experienced calamari battered and fried may find Figs grilled version a happy revelation: Long tender tubes of squid are gently charred then marinated in olive oil, garlic and fresh herbs. Fried shrimp are lightly breaded and garnished with delicious figs, mandarin orange-red onion relish and soy ginger glaze. Fig chutney and port wine sauce give roasted duck a fruity flourish. A lightly sweet anisettetinged beurre blanc proved a heavenly pairing for miso-marinated black cod, served with unexpected sides of spinach sauted with tomatoes and white beans and a crusty Parmesan-angel hair pasta cake.

This one was as refreshing and tasty as it was picturesque, artfully arranged on a handful of arugula in an oversized martini glass. Chunks of sushi-grade tuna were gently tossed in olive oil and soy sauce and mixed with figs, shaved almonds, just the right amount of red onion, some lime and fresh herbs. One More Thing: My dining companion wasnt feeling the days heat at much as I was, so he opted for a hot appetizer of pan-fried goat cheese served with arugula, figs with port wine and a lovely lingonberry reduction ($11.95). Knowing how much I enjoy anything involving goat cheese, he kindly insisted I have one of the four plump discs of creamy deliciousness that comprised his order. Heaven. Cindy Pierce

CUISINEJimmys Bait-N-Tackle reels them in with tasty food, retro attitudeFor those of you who hadnt yet arrived in Naples in the 1970s, it was a sleepy, laid-back sort of place and a much more seasonal community. That was the era before The RitzCarlton Corp. built two signature hotels in town and the Naples Winter Wine Festival became one of the worlds top charity wine fests. Star chefs werent flocking to Fifth Avenue and, as a result, restaurants were generally more casual and simple. Those were the days in which owner Jimmy McDonnell grew up in Naples and its the era he is trying to bring back, if only for the time it takes to eat dinner or enjoy a few drinks with friends, at his new, down-home establishment, Jimmys Bait-N-Tackle Pubgrille. The son of the late, great defense attorney, Michael McDonnell (his law degree and 1960s military photo are mounted prominently in the entranceway), Jimmy McDonnell has set up shop in the sprawling bar and restaurant in front of the Ramada Inn on U.S. 41, formerly home to Pompano Grill and, before that, Pates. Mr. McDonnells treatment of the space with its retro photos of longgone tourist stops and a plethora of pictures of people having fun in the Florida sun intermingled with life preservers and other nautical kitsch fits like a comfortable pair of broken-in jeans. It invites customers to show up in their shorts and T-shirts, flip flops or Topsiders and settle in for an inexpensive meal, adult beverage or perhaps a game of pool. And while all thats a refreshing change, the real news is that the food is Florida based and is pretty darned good. The seafood is fresh and limited to conch, Florida shrimp, gulf snapper, mahi and grouper. No halibut, salmon, cod and, thankfully, nary a sight of the dreaded tilapia or basa on the menu. That means fish and chips are made with mahi. Tacos contain mahi. And the only fish platter available is snapper fried, grilled or blackened. Jimmys keeps it simple but inventive, with a playful menu that offers Chum (aka, appetizers) such as Garys Green Southern Caviar (boiled peanuts), Cousin Petes Pork Potato Boats, B&T wings and the Okeechobee Hog Sundae (Nathans hot dogs on mashed potatoes, onions, spiced pork, bacon, shredded cheese, all broiled and topped with Franks wing sauce and mustard). For more hearty fare, there are Tamiami tacos, fried shrimp, the aforementioned fish and chips, burgers, Ma and Pa Rooks Fried Yard Bird (fried chicken), chops, snapper, grouper sandwiches and even a portabella stack for vegetarians. A cup of Fines Famous Conch Chowder ($7.75) arrived hot and fragrant, the tomato base chock full of carrots, celery, green pepper, onions and shreds of conch all seasoned nicely and served with the requisite packages of saltine crackers.Cracked conch ($14.14) was a refreshing change from doughy fritters. Instead, conch is pounded thin then fried and served with sweet guava remoulade. I cant say I tasted much guava in that remoulade but it did have a sweet note that worked well with the crisp coating and slightly chewy conch. There was a longer than usual lapse between when we finished our appetizer and the arrival of our entrees. Thats better than having entrees arrive too early but it was a good 25 minutes between courses, a bit longer than desirable. I would liken it to waiting for a fish to bite.We amused ourselves by checking out the dozens of photos mounted on the walls presumably submitted by patrons as requested by the proprietor who has created a Wall of Fame on which he will mount photos of you fishing, playing or having fun in Naples. At long last, our apologetic server arrived with two round plates containing our entrees. Mine was a generous portion of blackened snapper ($22.22). Other options are fried or grilled. The fish was moist and well-seasoned but not overly spicy, which sometimes happens with blackening. A small container of what tasted like orange marmalade accompanied it and provided a sweet counterpoint to the spices. The fish came with a choice of two sides. I tried the onion rings, which were crisp, hot and sweet, and the cole slaw, which was cold, fresh and in need of some zip. The Tamiami tacos ($14.14) were terrific. Grilled mahi mahi was chopped into small pieces then combined with cilantro, cumin, slaw and pickled jalapenos then topped with an avocado drizzle served in soft tacos. The flavors and textures worked fabulously together. With three tacos and a side of slaw, this was a filling dish. For dessert, we tried a slice of Pelican Pie ($7.77), which mercifully contains no birds. Its the pubs version of Key lime pie. It is not made on premises and was the weakest of the items we ordered. The filling had a gelatinous consistency, the whipped topping was lackluster and a raspberry sauce drizzled over it looked pretty but clashed with the somewhat tart flavor of the pie. Our server and the others I saw moving around the room were friendly and helpful, answering questions about the whimsical menu patiently and knowledgably. The lag between courses notwithstanding, it was a good and inexpensive dinner, one you dont have to dress up for. With low prices, good food and a sense of fun, Jimmys is likely to hook you once youve tried it.

Kalea Bays First Tower Reaches 19th Floor Clubhouse also under constructionKalea Bay, a gated, resort-lifestyle 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 mid-July, the construction on our first tower has reached the 19th floor, stated Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing. At the current pace, the building should be celebrating its topping off around the third week of August. The 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. From my office in the sales center I can observe the construction progress on a daily basis, 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/4bath plans with 3,755 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with three-bedrooms plus den and three-and-a-half baths, have 3,835 total square feet 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 two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Those beaches include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally in 2015, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9, said Wilson. 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, said Wilson. Our clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It 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 will 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 Above: This recent aerial of Kalea Bay shows the first tower reaching skyward as construction also continues on the clubhouse on the far right. 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.
