To address the needs of a growing population and its children, the mental health and substance abuse treatment center is in the midst of expanding its facilities and programming for local kids. To that end, a new 2,000-square-foot outpatient facility for minors is on target to open in October, and an expanded crisis stabilization unit should be ready in early 2017. Both projects are part of the centers 2020 Vision five-year plan administrators started implementing last year. Studies show that early intervention is the key to successful treatment when mental health issues arise in children, and DLC is committed to having enough resources to care for area kids. That matches what we were hearing and seeing in the community, CEO Scott Burgess says about research indicating early intervention can change the trajectory of the illness and outcomes of treatment. The new outpatient center will have treatment space specifically for childrens services and will include two group rooms, private therapy offices, doctors offices and a nurses station.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARY Lang may his lum reekAug. 24, 1925. Ninety-one years ago. today. So what? I can answer that question. Look at the blood coming out of the newest scratch on your kids knee, or the little paring-knife slice in your finger. Someone deeply, closely related to you lives in that blood. Someone who was alive on Aug. 24, 1925, just like William Kilpatrick Jr. Faulkner was right: The past is not dead. Its not even past. By the end of that late-summer Monday in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., Bill had arrived in a world between wars unfortunately. Both he and his late older brother, Macgregor Kilpatrick, a 1939 graduate of the United States Naval Academy, would get into the next one all the way. Bill took his first breath only five years before a Great Depression, only six weeks before the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Washington Senators in the World Series, and with Calvin Coolidge manning the White House. Although it was a Monday, The New York Times managed to squeeze 13 stories onto its front page, probably aiming to overwhelm the many other dailies sold in the Big Apple. Soviet Exiles Moscow Jewelers to Siberia, the headlines read. Republicans Open Campaign Tonight: Bennett and Waterman issue statements declaring Waterman is not a Republican. Philips Guarded, Conspiracy Denied, Charges ridiculed by private detective Carries a loaded pistol all day. And for the techies, Briton Sends Radio (Concert) Program 14,000 miles to U.S.S. Seattle. But The Times didnt just do news. One learned from the Aug. 24 edition that you could sublet a 410-square-foot fireproof office on 34th Street overlooking the Hudson River for a year, for $75; that The Wanderer, a Paramount Picture, was playing twice daily at Criterion Theatre on Broadway and 44th Street, with Tyrone Power, Greta Nissen and Wallace Beery; that you could get a Hudson Seal trimmed coat (dried Northern Muskrat) for $245; a room in Philadelphias Rittenhouse Hotel for $2 a night, or $2.50 with a bath; and a four-piece golf suit from Sanger on Fifth Avenue for $25 to $35. The suit was made on site, of course. Among the want ads for nurses and handymen on the day Bill was born, this one appeared in fine print: MALE Chef First class pastry and salad man, new cafeteria in Florida; State age, nationality. Write W.M. Carnasion, Royal Palm Cafeteria, Ft. Myers, Fla. Unbeknownst to Bill Kilpatrick nowadays a Lee County resident, a father and grandfather, a career writer and former editor of one stripe or another at Parade, Popular Mechanics, True, Field & Stream and others, not to mention a retired NewsPress columnist and writing coach he had his first Florida connection. The ad was a little wink of fate, perhaps, delivered from the region he would someday share for decades with his now late, beloved wife, Phyllis. Mrs. Kilpatrick died earlier this year. When Bill was born to Fannie Louise Speechly Kilpatrick (and may we pause here to thank her for doing such good work), golf became part of his life. His father, William Kilpatrick, had been born in Dumfries and raised in St. Andrews, Scotland, where love of the game is probably genetic. In 1925, he was superintendent of the course at the Sunningdale Country Club, in Scarsdale. Bills 2011 book from the University of Nebraska Press, Brassies, Mashies & Bootleg Scotch, is a memoir of life with the old man, much of it spent on or around golf courses. But his father was not only a golfer. Before World War I, the old man served in the famous Scots fighting regiment, The Black Watch. During the war, he joined the U.S. Army, serving in France and becoming an American citizen.Then and now, the Kilpatricks retained a Bobby Jones ethical world view: At the 1925 U.S. Open, Jones hit a shot that fell into the deep rough of the embankment on the 11th green at Worcester. As he prepared to hit out, his club brushed the grass near the ball, which in turn touched the ball. Jones insisted on penalizing himself, ultimately costing him a victory in the Open that year. In Bills case, he joined the Army Air Force and trained as a gunner, then shipped out to England in the last bloody year of the war. Falling ill offered a chance to remain grounded while his beaten-up squadron continued to fight he insisted on flying combat missions in the glass bubble at the nose of a B-17 bomber, checked out and pressed into duty as a togglier (a bombardier). He was 19. On his eighth mission, he was blown out of his seat by shrapnel and badly wounded. But he crawled back into the seat, re-attached his oxygen and delivered the bombs on target while a navigator sat nearby, frozen with fear and unable to help. The pilot descended a ladder from the cockpit, bandaged the worst wound to save his life, gave him morphine and flew the damaged plane home. Bill spent months in hospitals and can still feel those wounds. A single purple heart is framed on a wall in his home, but youll never see him parading in uniforms or wearing any medals.His older brother, meanwhile, flew fighter planes in the Pacific, including off the U.S.S. Franklin, later badly damaged by a kamikaze. He shot down five enemy aircraft, became an ace and won both the Navy Cross (the nations second-highest medal for valor) and the Distinguished Flying Cross. Later in life he graduated from Yale Law School and became chief counsel for the American Hockey League (Macgregor is now in the American Hockey League Hall of Fame). Its been 91 years, and all of its in the blood, his and ours. Lang may his lum reek long may his chimney smoke. And long may the fire below it burn bright. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com 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.

It is a delight to lose yourself in watching Team USA compete with hundreds of other superlative athletes from around the world. Our hometown Olympians demonstrate the depth of our countrys well of inspiration for passion, courage, integrity, resolve, str ength, grace and joy. The games display the breadth of the worlds diversity, come together in a brief moment, as one international community. It is humankind competing to be the best it can be, in contests that challenge all the physical, mental and emotional resources humanly available. The dramas that unfold revive faith and optimism in our common, global aspiration to rise above our limitations. The United States is well represented by a 554-member team of men and women consisting of the best of the best athletes our country has to offer. They come from every corner of the nation and take part in the majority of sports featured during the games. The Miami Herald also notes South Florida has contributed its own delegation of athletes, all of whom have South Florida ties. It includes 21 athletes competing for Team USA and 20 competing on behalf of other countries. The athletes work for the invite, earning the honor after devoting years of sacrifice, discipline and hard work. Olympiads are the young on their way to the limits of what a body can do in its prime, and for the veterans of past games, their will to be there stretching beyond their bodies ability to say no. And, oh, the stories of their journey. Its a road of highs and lows that leads to the field of dreams where legends are born. For every medal taken home, hundreds experience the heartbreak of what might have been. Yet to have competed at all is a remarkable achievement. The overall number of women athletes participating in the games has grown, including countries that have never before allowed nor sent women to compete. Perhaps its no surprise, but the U.S. sent this year more women to the Olympics than any other nation in Olympics history. So says the U.S. Olympic Committee, noting the U.S. roster is comprised of 262 men and 292 women. They competed in 27 different sports across 40 disciplines; and 244 of the 306 medal events. It has been a long slog for women to achieve more equitable participation in the games. They face three pillars of resistance: that women should be allowed to participate at all, when facing total exclusion; that women should be allowed to participate in sports designated as men-only, such as marathons; and that women should be allowed to compete with male athletes in sports that dont require speed and strength, such as marksmanship. The Wall Street Journal says women athletes still didnt achieve parity with male athletes in the Rio Olympics. That is because mens events outnumber womens events within the same sport and the prevalence of men-only competitions. There are downstream effects: Before the first buzzer sounds, men are assured of walking away with more than 55 percent of the gold, silver and bronze medallions awarded. I confess disappointment but not surprise at this revelation. After all, excluding women from the games goes back to when Zeus threw thunderbolts to roast whatever Greek upstart provoked his ire. But that wasnt all: Women flirted with execution simply for taking up the Olympics as a spectator sport, drawn by the display of all those near-naked Adonis flexing their abs. But, really, what alternative did women have? Well, they could start a stable. In the ancient Olympics, a womans only avenue forward was to own and enter horses in equestrian events. Even then, they had to stay home, denied the right to observe the contests. Beyond her prowess in robbing her husbands purse to purchase the nags, a womans equestrian abilities played no role, and, if her steeds won their events, she was barred from the celebrations. It must have been a bitter pill. The only thing these women got for their Olympian aspirations was a lousy T-shirt. Women didnt get another opportunity to challenge the games men-only policy until the re-emergence of the modern Olympics in 1896. They were unsuccessful so they orchestrated a separate Womens Olympics to keep hope alive. The breakthrough came in 1900 at the Paris Olympics, when womens golf and lawn tennis events were added. Women were excluded from track and field until 1928, the year womens events in gymnastics were added. It took 60 more years before the Olympics included a womens distance race; then came weightlifting (2000), wrestling (2004) and boxing (2012). Equestrian events are the only Olympic sport featuring coed teams and individual events that pit women against men. Women have taken home 25 of the total of 45 metals awarded since 1996. I guess that lousy T-shirt counted for something after all. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

It almost doesnt qualify as a protest or a riot if Pool isnt livestreaming from the streets. But he is pulling out of Milwaukee because it is too dangerous for white people. In a carefully stated YouTube video, Pool described the verbal taunts and threats, as well as actual violence, directed at whites. After an 18-year-old male was shot in the neck and extracted by Milwaukee police in an armored vehicle Pool identifies the victim as white, although other press reports dont mention his race he concluded he had to leave. (For the record, Pool is half Korean not that rioters care.) The Milwaukee unrest has taken on a more explicitly racist cast than other riots after officer-involved shootings. After Ferguson, the anti-police movement famously adopted the slogan Hands up, dont shoot. If it were to take its next catchphrase from Milwaukee, it might be (per Pools reporting) f*** white people. In other officer-involved shootings or deaths that have occasioned unrest, there has at least been a colorable case that the police acted wrongfully. In Milwaukee, a black officer shot an armed man, 23-year-old Sylville Smith, who by all accounts ran from his car after a traffic stop and defied an order to drop his (stolen) gun. The officer wore a body camera, and the police chief says the video shows Smith raising his gun before the cop shot him dead. Presumably we will see the entire video and know more soon enough, but its not hard to believe that Smith was capable of recklessly threatening the officer. His long rap sheet is the story, in microcosm, of why inner-city communities are so miserably unlivable, and need to be policed so intensely. Smiths mother says her son got his gun because he had been shot twice and robbed four times. Three people were murdered last weekend within blocks of where the officer shot Smith on Saturday afternoon, and five people were killed in total over a nine-hour period Friday night and Saturday morning. The routine carnage is, of course, never the occasion for rioting. The Milwaukee disorder is another stark illustration of how often the agitation over police-involved shootings fades into a noxious nihilism, heedless of the facts or reason. Burning down neighborhood business establishments, throwing bricks at cops, trashing police cars and chasing white people all features of the Milwaukee riots may feel good, but they are simply more symptoms of the social breakdown that police are asked to respond to every day. Even if the cops conduct themselves perfectly in such communities, there will inevitably be tensions and tragedies that dont occur in more orderly places where young men arent so often the perpetrators and victims of crime. The deeper question in the debate over policing is how we can keep the lives of so many young men like Sylville Smith from sliding off the rails. But trying to answer it doesnt hold the satisfaction of smashing windows, or provide ready fodder for cable TV debates. And so the beat, drearily, goes on.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ROOTED IN NAPLESMinecraft or chess: Games teach kids critical thinkingThere are days not often, but certainly regularly that Minecraft makes me want to toss our iPad into the gulf. As far as video games go, however, it certainly has some beneficial lessons for kids. I often wonder if it isnt the technology ages equivalent to chess. Minecraft teaches strategy, critical thinking, resource management and the deep pleasure of wrangling a seething horde of pixilated zombies. But the screens glare can have its own zombifying effect on humans of a certain age that age being between 6 and 12. And then theres the off chance that our little angel could run into a real-life bad guy should we allow him to level up and play competitively with others. We have not and are a little tetchy about the prospect, so Minecraft certainly has some limits when it comes to the lessons it can impart to youngsters. For now, our boy is happy with the downscaled version, and I kind of hope he stays that way until Minecraft mania passes. After having a conversation with Marco resident Wade Keller, Im thinking that chess itself might be a friendlier venue for learning brain discipline and sportsmanship. Mr. Keller, who has been playing chess for 70 years, is starting a chess club for Marco kids at the Marco Island Library. Though he has been thinking about passing on the game to younger generations for some time, he got a kick in the pants recently when he was beaten in a tournament by 6-year-old Texan Rachael Li. Even though it took three hours and 43 moves for the game to officially conclude, Mr. Keller admits that he recognized early on in the competition that he would not be the victor over Miss Li. A draw was the best he could hope for. He came away blown away by the capacity of some kids to succeed at a game it often takes decades to master. This is my theory: Theres a correlation between chess and learning a foreign language. The whole philosophy of chess is like a foreign language, Mr. Keller says. For older people, its a hard thing to learn, but kids seem to pick it up really fast at least the ones who want to learn. Mr. Keller taught himself how to play as a child once checkers at his hometown barber shop in Greenville, Ga., lost its thrill. Because he was the only person in town who played, however, he turned to postal chess. Facilitated by the National Chess Association, he and a pen pal traded moves through the mail until someone won. It took about a year and 40-50 moves to get it done, he recalls. It was just a passion. People enjoy different things. Other golfed or fished; I read books and played chess. The game is a great way for youngsters to tame their competitive impulses and strategize, he says. And studying chess correlates nicely with academic success. Kids between 6 and 16 move too fast, he believes. The ones who want to learn have to slow down and think. Thats a big thing with academics. For parents who want to wrest their children away from video games, Mr. Kellers group meets from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays at Marco Island Library. Sign up at collierlibrary.org/programs. For more information, call Mr. Keller at 389-2525 or email wk@kellerpublishing. com.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYer in presidential contests. Go figure. Long gone are the days when the state was Americas dowdy, predictable, bluehaired grandparent concerned principally with early bird specials, Lawrence Welk reruns, Metamucil and shuffleboard. Florida of the 21st century is an ethnically riven, politically splintered, polyglot mega-state. It is the Salvador Dali of democracy flamboyant, outrageous, gaudy, surreal and thoroughly confounding. Now 16 years after the embarrassing and infamous voter recount, 16 years after Bush v. Gore, 16 years after Floridas electoral votes handed the Oval Office to George W. Bush Florida once again is in a position to play the deciding role in who becomes the next president of the United States. A close race is anticipated, and theres nothing new there. Florida is accustomed to them. Forget the 2000 election for the moment. Just four years ago President Obama defeated Mitt Romney in Florida, 50 percent to 49.1 percent, making it the only state to be decided by less than 1 percent. Floridians relish cliffhangers. The campaigns of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have zeroed in on the state, as well they should. Floridas 29 electoral votes (the fourth most in the Electoral College) comprise more than 10 percent of the 270 needed to win. Although Republicans dominate in races for statewide offices, Florida is one of those rare places where when it comes to national elections both the Republican and Democratic parties have a fighting chance to carry the day. This curious political dichotomy between statewide and national elections is explained by Darryl Paulson, emeritus professor of government at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. In voting, self interest becomes very important, he said. When it comes to state government, Floridians generally want no frills. They want to get government off their backs. The federal government is another story. Florida looks for the federal government to be involved. The voters are concerned about things like health care, Social Security and Medicare. These are crucial issues. The states explosive growth and ethnically rich electorate enhance its clout. Politically, it is the personification of a bellwether state, and its influence continues to grow. Every census since 1930 has resulted in the state gaining at least one electoral vote, and the number is increasing rapidly. At the end of World War II, Florida had eight electoral votes. In 1964, it was 14. By 1976, the tally stood at 17. In 2000, it reached 25, and it was 27 in 2008. Florida got two more electoral votes under the U.S. Census Bureau congressional apportionment process of 2010, for its current total. Texas was the only other state to receive more than one electoral vote as a result of the 2010 apportionment. Influxes of Cubans, retirees, service workers to the theme park economy booming near Orlando and other groups have resulted in a state much more diversified both economically and politically than many of its southern brethren, the 0toWin website pointed out. As a result, although still leaning slightly Republican, Florida is today seen as perhaps the ultimate battleground state, its population a microcosm of the country as a whole. This reputation was enhanced by the closeness of the 2000 election, where it took a month of legal wrangling to decide the winner. The two parties in Florida are almost evenly divided when it comes to presidential elections, said Peter Bergerson, professor of political science and public administration at Florida Gulf Coast University. If you look back over the last three or four presidential elections, both parties have had a chance to win and indeed have won. In the last 40 years, Florida has voted Democratic four times (1976, 1996, 2008, 2012) and Republican six times (1980, 1984, 1988, 1992, 2000, 2004). Tellingly, Florida went with the general-election winner in nine of those elections, with the only exception coming in 1992, when it backed incumbent George H.W. Bush over Bill Clinton. Since 1976, Floridas voter registration statistics, as compiled by the states Division of Elections, reveal a startling realignment in the electorate. In 1976, there were about 1.1 million registered Republicans, 2.7 million Democrats and 204,000 classified as other. Ten years later, there were 2 million Republicans, 3.2 million Democrats and 377,604 others. In 1996, the gap between the two parties had closed dramatically, with 3.2 million Republicans, 3.7 million Democrats and 1 million others. By 2006 there were 3.9 million Republicans, 4.1 million Democrats and 2.2 million others. This year, the figures stand at 4.4 million Republicans, 4.6 million Democrats and 3.2 million others. Thus, presidential candidates in present-day Florida face a daunting task. They must solidify their partys base, while at the same time woo a massive bloc of unaffiliated voters whose political affinities seem to change with the wind. Mr. Trump and Ms. Clinton both claim strengths within the state. Mr. Trump, a New Yorker, considers Florida and more specifically Palm Beach to be a second home, and he has extensive business interests in Palm Beach County. The real estate baron also has the endorsement of prominent Republican officeholders, including Attorney General Pam Bondi, Gov. Rick Scott and Sen. Marco Rubio, Mr. Trumps onetime rival for the nomination. Ms. Clinton, who enjoys the support of popular U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson (the only Democrat who holds a statewide office), views Florida as an essential element of what she hopes to be a winning coalition of minority voters and other traditional Democrats. Long a swing state prized for (its) electoral votes ... and a dependable source of Democratic campaign cash, Florida this year is also an important part FLORIDAFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOSIn 2000, Al Gore was defeated in Florida by 537 votes, and that meant the election went to George W.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2016 NEWS A9 of Clintons strategy to turn out large numbers of Latino voters, The Washington Post wrote earlier this month. Mr. Trumps harsh rhetoric regarding immigrants, especially those from Mexico, has created problems for him within Floridas Hispanic community. Along these lines, Mr. Trump suffered an embarrassing setback not long ago when the director of communications for the Florida Republican Party, Wadi Gaitan (who is Hispanic), resigned because of disagreements with the nominee. Mr. Gaitan, who leaves the GOP to join the conservative grassroots organization LIBRE, made no attempt to disguise his feelings toward the billionaire candidate. Im thankful for my almost two years with the Florida GOP, however, moving on gives me a great opportunity to continue promoting free-market solutions while avoiding efforts that support Donald Trump, he said in a written statement. ITH ABOUT 2 MONTHS LEFT UNTIL THE general election, the race in Florida is tantalizingly close. Most polls have Ms. Clinton with a lead. These samplings indicate that while Florida voters have serious reservations about Mr. Trump as a candidate, Ms. Clinton has been unable to fully capitalize on her opponents liabilities or beat down the negatives associated with her character. A CBS poll released Aug. 14 showed Ms. Clinton leading Mr. Trump in Florida, 45 percent to 40 percent. In June, this same poll pegged her lead at three points. Monmouth University conducted a Florida survey that was released two days later and it gave Ms. Clinton a larger advantage, 48 percent to 39 percent, over Mr. Trump. CBS poll revealed that percent of Florida voters call Trumps controversial comments generally irresponsible. He also receives poor marks as a potential commander-in-chief. Yet Mr. Trump scores high on the ability to bring change (66 percent to 37 percent for Ms. Clinton). About half of the respondents gave Ms. Clinton poor marks for honesty and said the controversy surrounding her emails troubled them. According to the Monmouth poll, only 36 percent of Florida voters view Ms. Clinton favorably a tenuous and precarious position for any frontrunner. The debates begin next month, and there could be an October surprise involving more damaging leaks concerning Ms. Clintons emails or a even a terrorist attack. Nothing is set in stone. It is against this backdrop that Florida is poised to become Americas power broker. As The New York Times pointed out, Florida is the state most likely to provide the deciding vote in the 2016 election. Florida, Ohio and Pennsylv ania are shaping up to be three of the most critical battleground states, The Times observed. These states are in fact the three most likely to provide the electoral vote that tips the election to the winner. The newspaper in a story on its website headlined Florida is Most Likely to Be the Election Tipping Point gave Florida a 17 percent chance of determining the winner, followed by Pennsylv ania at 11 percent and Ohio at 10 percent. FTEN OVERLOOKED IN THE 2016 RACE in Florida is role the Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, formerly governor of New Mexico, might play. If past is prologue in Florida, Mr. Johnson could be instrumental in shaping the outcome, for the state has proved hospitable to third-party candidates in past elections. George Wallace, the late Alabama governor, drew 28 percent of the states vote in the 1968 general election. Twenty-four years later, Texas tycoon Ross Perot got almost 20 percent of the ballots cast in Florida. And it has been argued that in 2000, Ralph Nader, the consumer activist, siphoned just enough votes from Al Gore to cost the Tennessean the election. But for (Mr. Naders) 97,488 votes in Florida ... Al Gore probably would be finishing his second term, George Will wrote in 2007. Gallup, the polling organization, studied the 2000 election in Florida and drew the same conclusion as Mr. Will. Nader received almost 100,000 votes in Florida in 2000, a state George W. Bush won by 537 votes over Al Gore, the Gallup News Service said in an analysis published in 2004. Gallups pre-election polls as well as exit polls showed that Nader voters were more likely to support Gore than Bush. If Nader had not run that year, it is reasonable to assume that enough of a majority of Nader votes would have been cast for Gore, giving him Floridas electoral votes and the presidency. Harry Evans, a prominent Democratic fundraiser, summed up his partys frustration in 2000 by saying, I want to kill Ralph Nader. This antipathy directed toward Mr. Nader is understandable but perhaps overstated. Truth is, Mr. Gore and the Democratic Party performed horribly in Florida. Mr. Nader did not help things, of course, but a close analysis of the race shows that Mr. Gore was capable of blowing the election all by his lonesome. Mr. Gore lost the over-65 vote by 67,000 votes. White women supported Mr. Bush by a 53-44 percent margin. Exit polls also revealed that 308,000 self-described Democrats and 191,000 self-described liberals favored Mr. Bush over Mr. Gore. Clearly, Mr. Nader was not the sole reason that Mr. Gore lost Florida and thus the presidency. Some are quick to point out that Mr. Gore was a wooden campaigner almost totally devoid of charm and charisma. That is true. But the same can be said of Ms. Clinton, who continues to baffle and frustrate many voters with her inability to fashion a coherent, consistent explanation for her email woes and for the influence the Clinton Foundation exerted within the State Department during her tenure as its secretary. Mr. Paulson, the USF government professor, noted that a third-party candidacy might not play as well this time around in Florida. Yes, it is true that weve never had two major party candidates who are both so disliked and distrusted by voters, Mr. Paulson said. But for a third party to do well, you must have a strong, wellknown person at the top of the ticket. The Libertarians have a fairly strong team (William Weld, the former governor of Massachusetts is Mr. Johnsons vice pres-SEE FLORIDA, A10 COURTESY PHOTOSSixteen years after the embarrassing and infamous voter recount, 16 years after Bush v.

That is different from past thirdparty efforts. People knew who George Wallace, Ross Perot and Ralph Nader were. Mr. Trumps appeal is unusual, to say the least. His campaign to date is almost that of a third-party candidate in that he is not viewed as a traditional Republican and indeed has raised the ire of many mainstream elements within the GOP. Stewart Lytle, a Boston-based journalist and novelist who extensively covered George Wallace back in the day, said Mr. Trump evokes many of the same passions elicited by the fire-breathing populist from Alabama. I know Florida has changed dramatically since 1968, but if you listen to Trump, you hear many of the same themes that George Wallace employed so effectively in the state, especially in North Florida, around the Panhandle, Mr. Lytle said. There is this constant refrain from Trump that elites in both business and government are out to screw you. That the system is rigged and that the people who run the system are incompetent, ineffective and corrupt. One of Wallaces signature lines was that pointy-headed intellectuals and bureaucrats in Washington carry briefcases. If you opened these briefcases, Wallace said, all you would find is a baloney sandwich. Thats not too far off what Donald Trump is preaching now, and if you believe the polls, a lot of people in Florida are still buying it decades after George Wallace has disappeared from the scene. Mr. Paulson asserts that a good oldfashioned ground game (e.g., working the phones, going door-to-door to solicit votes, providing transportation on election day) will probably determine the winner in Florida. Mr. Trump, though, disdains such commonsense declarations. Reverting to his recurring role as the kamikaze candidate, he told Fox News not long ago: I dont know that we need to get out the vote. I think people that really want to vote are going to get out, and they are going to vote for Trump. As Mr. Trumps curious observation would indicate, Ms. Clinton possesses a decided edge when it comes to campaign strategy and organization. In a Wall Street Journal poll released this month, 52 percent of Floridas voters said they viewed Ms. Clinton negatively. Yet 92 percent of self-described Democrats said they support her. Mr. Trumps support among Republicans was 79 percent, a paltry figure, which gives Ms. Clinton a clear-cut advantage with her partys base. Moreover, Ms. Clinton has bombarded Mr. Trump with caustic television spots, which have largely gone unanswered by her Republican opponent. And Mr. Trumps post-convention performance may be the worst in modern history. But for all that, Ms. Clinton is still in a real fight to win Florida, which suggests that any major slips on her part could prove to be fatal. For the moment, she retains the upper hand. My sense right now is that she has a wider pathway to the White House than Trump, said Mr. Bergerson, the FGCU professor. LORIDA SEEMS READY IN 2016 TO WRITE another wild chapter in its book of presidential history. Even when it was little more than a tangled mass of mangroves and swampland, with more alligators than humans, Florida, which became a state in 1845, somehow found a way to insinuate itself into national elections Florida participated in its first presidential election in 1848, when it went for Zachary Taylor, a Whig who was the last non-Republican or non-Democrat to win a general election. Floridas direct involvement in national elections was halted when it seceded in 1861 and joined the Confederate States of America. As a secessionist state, Florida was not eligible, of course, to participate in the election of 1864, when Abraham Lincoln sought re-election. The Civil War ensured that the election would be chaotic and without precedent. It is remarkable that there was even an election held, said Joan Waugh, a historian at UCLA. The confusion surrounding the 1864 election, in hindsight, seems to have muddled and undermined Lincolns judgment, leading him to make one of the most egregious political and military miscalculations of his presidency. And Florida lay at the heart of this presidential morass. Lincoln was convinced the election would be exceedingly close and that he would need every electoral vote he could muster. He and his political advisers rather amazingly calculated that Floridas three measly electoral votes (which is the number it would have had if it had remained in the Union) could be crucial. (According to the 1860 census, Florida was the most sparsely settled state of the Confederacy, with a population of just 140,000 people 61,000 of whom were slaves. Georgia, by comparison, had a population of slightly more than 1 million with 460,000 slaves.) The presidents political and military advisers convinced him Florida was there for the re-taking, persuading him that pro-Union sentiment ran high within the state. Florida could be returned to the United States if Lincoln acted decisively and with force, these wrongheaded counselors insisted. None of this was true, but the beleaguered Lincoln took the bait. Acting on this ill-conceived advice, he approved a military operation in Florida, with the expectation that a quick and surgically precise military strike would lead to an uprising among Floridians who wanted out of the Confederacy. Lincoln expected victory. What he got was an unmitigated military and political disaster. Federal and Confederate troops engaged on Feb. 20, 1864, at Olustee in northern Florida. It was a complete and utter rout, with the Confederate forces thoroughly trouncing their blue-coated counterparts. Olustee, the largest battle waged in Florida, proved to be one of the bloodiest encounters of the war, with both sides recording alarmingly high rates of casualties and deaths. The Union, which was suffering from a lack of manpower, threw large numbers of black soldiers into the maw at Olustee, where they distinguished themselves. The colored troops went in grandly, and they fought like devils, said one white Union soldier. After the encounter, some 50 black soldiers lay wounded and dying on the smoldering battlefield. Roving gangs of Rebel troops systematically murdered these defenseless men sometimes using clubs to accomplish the task. Lincoln realized his mistake, and Olustee was his last serious attempt to bring Florida back into the fold. The horror of that battle remained with the president and later, when he was vainly urged by some of his supporters to back away from emancipation, he said, There have been men who have proposed to me to return to slavery the black warriors of ... Olustee. I should be damned in time and in eternity for doing so. As it turned out, Florida and its three electoral votes would have meant nothing. Lincoln defeated Gen. George B. McClellan in a landslide, winning 55 percent of the popular vote and prevailing in the Electoral College by a margin of 212 to 21. By 1868, the war was ended and Florida was once again ready to participate in a presidential vote. But Harrison Reed, the carpetbagging Republican governor who originally hailed from Wisconsin, insisted the state was too poor to fund an election. So, Florida became the only state in 1868 to eschew a popular vote. Instead, over protests from Democrats, Floridas Reconstruction Legislature selected three Republican lawmakers to be the states presidential electors. The three dutifully cast their votes in the Electoral College for Ulysses S. Grant, the Republican candidate who prevailed. Following Reconstruction, Florida like the rest of the Deep South trended Democratic. That shift ended in 1952 when the state supported Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower. Since then, Florida has skipped back and forth between the two parties. And that is where we stand today. You could drive yourself crazy trying to figure out Florida, politically. The state will do what it will do and in its own time. It always has. The Sunshine State, you see, continues to adhere to the philosophy set forth years ago by the marvelously absurd Claude GoGo Kirk, who in 1966 was elected the first Republican governor since Reconstruction. The garden of controversy must be continually cultivated, Mr. Kirk liked to say of Florida politics, otherwise, nobody knows you are alive.

A new component of the centers resources is a partial hospitalization program, which will provide all the intensity of inpatient treatment for children but will allow them to go home at the end of the day. If the child is not having suicidal thoughts or thinking about harming someone else, its best for them to be in their own beds, Mr. Burgess says. David Lawrence Center has been a lifesaver, literally, for local teen Caleb Caldwell. After he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at age 9, Caleb responded to medications prescribed by his doctor. After he and his mother moved to Naples and Caleb entered puberty, however, his emotions and outbursts became unmanageable, his mother, Mellisa Caldwell says. Finding a new therapist for Caleb was critical. NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) of Collier County referred the boy and his mother to DLC. I was so grateful to find a place of such great support, as we had nothing, Ms. Caldwell says. Caleb was becoming suicidal, and we found great comfort in knowing there was a safe place to send him when he was at risk to himself. Caleb has been admitted to the Childrens Crisis Stabilization Unit at least 15 times, she says, adding the combination of outpatient and in-home therapy has helped the two of them understand his new diagnosis autism and learn how to manage it together. Calebs case manager helps them find resources and make appointments, something Ms. Caldwell greatly appreciates and knows she will need as her sons needs change and evolve. Staying on top of Calebs medical needs is not easy, but the DLC expansion will ease some of the challenges. For instance, coordinating his blood work between an outside lab and his DLC team can be a dangerous game that will be resolved when an in-house nurse can draw Calebs blood and test it. We have had the worst time getting these results back to DLC from the lab. By the time we go through all these steps, a lot of time has passed, Ms. Caldwell explains. This is an issue for kids like Caleb whose medication could become a health risk, or even deadly (if levels get too high or too low). Having the ability to have blood drawn right away and to not have to wait for results from an outside lab is priceless, she adds. The four beds being added to the crisis unit will prevent situations such as Caleb and his mom encountered last year, when the unit was full. They waited overnight at the hospital for a bed to become available before Caleb eventually was transported to a facility in Charlotte County to the tune of $900 (a bill the family still owes). Ms. Caldwell then had to drive up twice a day for family therapy before her son could be released. Demand for childrens services at DLC has exploded since the 2012 Sandy Hook tragedy in which a 20-year-old man entered an elementary school in Connecticut and shot and killed 20 students and six adult staff members. In light of this and other gun tragedies that have plagued American schools the last few years, parents seem to be more responsive to their childrens mental health needs, Mr. Burgess says, resulting in a dramatic increase in referrals for admission to DLCs pediatric unit. Theres a greater awareness about the need to address these issues sooner than later, he says. When people are struggling, we try to get them care. Construction of the new childrens outpatient building and the expanded crisis stabilization unit will cost the center $700,000. The $450,000 for the new building has been fully secured, thanks to private donors. While funds are still being raised for the crisis stabilization unit, the Richard M. Schulz Family Foundation has provided a $100,000 matching grant, and Naples philanthropist Jerry Nichols made a private donation.

In a county with no independent, taxbased, public financial support for childrens social services, our community relies on the support of those who attend the Naples Winter Wine Festival and give substantial sums to improve childrens lives, Maria Jimenez-Lara, CEO of the NCEF, says. Our research tells us that were changing outcomes f or at-risk and underprivileged children, and its imperative that we continue filling this critical void. Driven by independent studies commissioned by NCEF showing gaps in basic social services for Collier Countys kids, the foundation has made philanthropic investments in more than 40 local organizations. NCEF grants help improve the lives of nearly 68,000 children with access to enriching after-school and summer programs; advocate for more than 47,000 children with shelter, crisis counseling, mentorship and other basic essentials; educate nearly 36,800 children through early childhood programs; and promote healthy living by providing critical medical services to 37,000 children county-wide. In addition, seven multi-partner, multiyear strategic initiatives have made a dramatic difference in closing service gaps and improving outcomes f or children. According to Filling in the Future, over the past five years, the number of Collier County children entering kindergarten on grade level has increased by 42 percent; school suspension rates have decreased by 65 percent; the graduation rate for at-risk youth has improved by 20 percent; and juvenile arrests in Collier County have been reduced by 62 percent. The seven initiatives are: Childrens health care (est. in 2006) 107,150 pediatric visits have been completed in a culturally competent setting. Before this project, Immokalee children had to travel to Naples and Fort Myers for primary and specialty health care. Childrens oral health (est. in 2006) 94,000 at-risk and underprivileged children have visited the NCEF Pediatric Dental Center, and 3,000 children have been screened through a mobile clinic. This initiative allowed for the uninsured and those on Medicaid to access pediatric dentistry without having to travel out of the county for basic dental care.Childrens mental health (est. in 2007) $6,500,000 has been spent on identifying and alleviating childrens mental health issues through the integration of primary and behavioral health services. Children in need can now access mental health care that was otherwise not available countywide. Childrens early learning (est. in 2008) 1,250 children from birth to age 5 have gained access to high quality teachers and affordable, educationfocused care. This in turn has impacted the number of kindergarten students entering school ready to learn. Childrens hunger (est. in 2011) $3,030,000 has been allocated to Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida and Meals of Hope to alleviate food insecurity (the fear of not knowing where your next meal will come from). Thousands of families to date now rely on centralized and consistent food distribution centers that provide nutritious food. Childrens out-of-school time (est. in 2012) 8,000 children have participated in innovative programming to close gaps in education during after-school, holiday and summertime hours. This initiative has elevated test scores, improved school attendance and increased the number of high school graduates and the number of graduates that go on to post-secondary education. Childrens vision (est. in 2012) 20,000 children have been screened for vision problems and 7,000 pairs of glasses have been distributed to children in need. Teachers and administrators report great improvement in academic performance, behavior and classroom participation, thanks to children being able to see properly with their new eyeglasses.

Sadie is an Akita belonging to Jenny Ingles, and Skyy is an American Staffordshire terrier owned by Sara DeMarco, both of whom work for Best Friends Animal Hospital in Fort Myers. The students all involved in The Immokalee Foundation programs got to interact with the animals, but more importantly, they learned a great deal about veterinary careers from Dr. Rachael Daly and her staff. Of course, the students were excited to interact with the pets, but they also asked some great questions, says Ms. Ingles, who is the hospital manager. They wanted to know if wed ever seen puppies being born. They were interested to learn about our day-to-day lives and what our jobs are all about, how hard it is to get jobs in this field, and how hard you have to study. Ms. DeMarco, a veterinary technician, says it seemed some of the students might be interested in exploring veterinary services as a career. Those are some of the reasons behind TIFs career panels in which Best Friends Animal Hospital participated. Career panels feature speakers from technology, law, media, human services, health care, manufacturing and other fields. Panelists often share personal stories about their educational backgrounds and the struggles they encounter in achieving their goals. Often, career panel days involve outings to a variety of workplaces. During the past school year, students in the TIF Career Development program journeyed to ArtisNaples and Gulfshore Playhouse for behind-the-scenes views of productions and to learn about the types of jobs available in the performing arts. Younger students traveled to The Naples Zoo to see what life is like for the staff (and the animals). Speakers who came to TIF offices told the students about careers they could purse at Immokalee Technical College. Dr. Corey Howard spoke to the students about medical and health care professions. High school students learned about opportunities in the United States military, as well as business etiquette and networking; they also participated in an anti-bullying session. The two programs about animals at The Naples Zoo and Best Friends Animal Hospital were among several held for middle school students. Leslie Escalante, who is 13 and in seventh grade, has since added veterinary doctor to her list of future possibilities. They explained why its a good job, because they really care about animals, she says. Leslie was accepted into TIFs Take Stock in Children scholarship program during the past school year and pledged to maintain good grades and behavior and to meet with her mentor regularly. By fulfilling these promises, she not only will receive a scholarship to a Florida college or university but is also serving as a positive role model for her younger siblings. Being involved in TIF programs will ensure that Leslie receives the help she needs with schoolwork along the way, as well. Right now, that means math: Shes a straight-A student otherwise, But math is my hardest subject, she says. I just cant get that one A in math. Alex Martinez is 12 and also in seventh grade. Although at this point he wants to be a lawyer or a businessman rather than a veterinarian, he says he learned a lot by participating in the career panel and enjoyed it, too. I gained a lot of knowledge, he says. Alex is in TIFs Junior Career Development program, following in the footsteps of his older brother and sister. They told me what to expect, he says. Along with other middle school students in the program, he stays after school a couple of times a week for additional education in reading, writing, math and leadership. The three professionals from Best Friends Animal Hospital connected with the students easily. All of us have kids, Ms. Ingles says, so it was easy to relate. She probably wouldnt be surprised to learn that Leslies family acquired a new family member since the career panel: a mixed breed Yorkie/poodle named Cody. He mostly likes to run around the house, the youngster says. The Immokalee Foundation provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences, and life skills development leading to economic independence.

But there are plenty of Floridians who would like to remind you that there is nothing wrong with a little maturity. The Nissan 370Z Roadster is out to show there can be stability and wisdom in the world of a 332-hp drop-top.This is essentially the same car weve seen for the past seven years, based on a design thats been on the road for 15 years. That might seem like a long time, but a good Z-car really does have staying power (the original 240Z-280Z timeline followed a similar path to the current one).The secret for remaining viable for this amount of time is that Nissan makes some of the most thoughtful sports cars in the industry. The 370Z is one of the easiest vehicles in its class to drive, own and enjoy. It starts with a design thats distinctive without being dated. Shark-tooth headlights, large fender flairs and a short rear deck are the kind of things that dont go out of style. In fact, not much of the design has been altered during the 370Zs lifetime, which some people find alluring. As with the original Volkswagen Beetle, when not much changes over the years, every car can appear new with a good wash and wax. Inside the 370Z is more of the practicality that keeps this Nissan viable in the market. It feels like the designers built the cockpit around real people, which results in comfortable seats with plenty of headroom and legroom. The 370Z Roadster was one of the first cars in its price class to offer cooled/ ventilated seats, which feel great even in a Florida winter.Even the stick shift models have a little readout built into the tachometer to display what gear is engaged. This might seem like an odd detail, but it acknowledges a real factor: that the driver might miss a gear in the close-pattern six-speed.What brings the whole package together is the motor. The 3.7-liter V6 is a multi-valve DOHC unit with 332 horsepower and a large 270 lb-ft of torque. If that read like a bunch of technical jargon, just know that out on the road it creates a sports car thats ready to accelerate in any situation, from a stoplight standstill to expressway passing. This is best utilized with the six-speed manual. There is an optional seven-speed automatic gearbox, but the stick shift is the wise choice for drivers. The manual is very forgiving, and when paired with the versatile motor, the car happily cruises like its in overdrive in any of the top half of its gears. Plus, theres plenty of power left in the motor, so passing can happen without downshifting. Theres also a SynchroRev Match feature on the six-speed that aids drivers who really push this Z hard on the backroads. This kind of flexibility isnt found in other sports cars that rely on highly developed low-displacement motors and/or turbochargers. Alas, the 370Z is an endangered species. The car is reaching the end of its lifecycle. It will be around for only about another year, and Nissan has not announced a replacement. If there is a successor, the next Z car is likely to have a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, because thats where the heart of the market is today. If so, it will still be fun while becoming more efficient but it wont be as versatile as this one.All that said, the Nissan 370Z Roadster is far from perfect. Fully loaded, this drop-top costs $50K-plus. That price point opens up a world of pre-owned convertibles with more power and a more modern fabric roof that lets in less road noise (the Chevrolet Corvette is a great example). There is no difference in motors across the 370Zs trim lineup, so the trick is to stay as close to the $42,655 base price as possible. Thats where to find the best balance of value and driving pleasure.A fun open-top car thats powerful enough to enjoy the open road but tame enough to behave in the city is a combo worth embracing. Wont you save the endangered 370Z Roadster? mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

It starts with a party Friday evening and continues with two full days of fishing and an awards reception. The kickoff party at the Naples Yacht Club includes cocktails, dinner, raffle and a live auction. Its open to the public in addition to anglers who sign up for the tournament. Tickets can be purchased online. Anglers will launch from location sin Naples, Goodland and Everglades City on Saturday and Sunday. The weekend concludes Sunday evening with a celebratory awards ceremony for anglers and guides at Northern Trust. The 23rd annual tournament supports efforts to protect Southwest Floridas most valuable natural resource: water. Without clean and abundant water, recreational and sport fishing would not exist. Over the years, the event has enabled the Conservancy to provide assistance and expertise to water quality projects at the local, state and federal levels; create the Estuaries Report Card rating the condition of the regions vital waters; work to limit the amount of pollution from the north that enters Southwest Floridas water; research and monitor juvenile gamefish habitats; help restore the Western Everglades and Ten Thousand Islands; and work to protect environmental landmarks such as the Ten Thousand Islands, Big Cypress, Estero Bay, the Cocohatchee Slough and the Caloosahatchee River. Our annual tournament not only provides the community and local anglers with a weekend of fun on the water, it also plays a great role in furthering our mission of protecting Southwest Floridas natural resources, says Rob Moher, Conservancy of Southwest Florida president and CEO. We hope to continue making positive strides in advocating for the resources that our community holds dear, and we look forward to another great tournament that will allow our programs to keep Southwest Florida waterways clean, safe and beautiful for future generations.

MiromarDesignCenter.comSUMMER CLEARANCE SALE New World OrderAustralians are about to learn how particular some people are about their genders. Queensland University of Technology and three other sponsors have created an online preference survey (currently underway) that asks participants to decide among 33 genders (since gender is, according to the World Health Organization, socially constructed). Male and female are clear enough but only where identity matches plumbing. Otherwise, its trans or transsexual, or else the more complicated bigender, omnigender, polygender, pangender, intergender, genderfluid, cisgender, trigender, demigender, gender non-conforming, non-binary, none gender and a few others.Latest religious messagesIndia has supposedly outlawed the baby-tossing religious test popular among Hindus and Muslims in rural villages in Maharashtra and Karnataka states, but a July New York Times report suggested that parents were still allowing surrogates to drop their newborn infants from 30 feet up and awaiting the gods blessing for a prosperous, healthy life. In all cases, according to the report, the gods come through, and a bedsheet appears below to catch the unharmed baby.Government in action More federal civilian employees have arrest and firearms authority than the total number of active-duty U.S. Marines, according to a June report by the organization Open The Books, which claims to have tallied line-by-line expenditures across the government. Several agencies (including the IRS and EPA) purchase assault weapons and other military-grade equipment (camouflage, night-vision goggles, 30-round magazines) for their agents, and even the Small Business Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Department of Education buy their agents guns and ammo. San Diego Padres outfielder Melvin Upton Jr. was traded on July 23 to the Toronto Blue Jays in the middle of a series between the Padres and the Blue Jays in Toronto. Normally, such a player would merely gather his belongings and walk down the hall to the other teams locker room. However, while Canada treats Blue Jays opponents as visitors, Blue Jays players, themselves, are Canadian employees, and if not residents must have work permits. Upton had to leave the stadium and drive to Lewiston, N.Y., which is the closest place he could find to apply to re-enter Canada properly. (He made it back by game time.)Leading economic indicators Shrewd tourism campaigns: (1) Since Bulgaria, on Romanias southern border, lies close to Romanias iconic Transylvania region, Bulgarian tourism officials have begun marketing their own vampire tourism industry stepped up following a 2014 archaeological find of a 4th-century graveyard of adolescents with iron stakes through their chests. (2) The new tourism minister of Thailand is threatening to close down the lucrative sex business in Bangkok and Pattaya, even with the country still rallying from a 2014 near-recession. Ms. Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul insisted that visitors are not interested in such a thing (as sex) but come for Thailands beautiful culture.The continuing crisis Horniness: (1) A year-long, nationwide investigation by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (reporting in May) found more than 2,400 doctors penalized for sexually abusing their patients with state medical boards ultimately allowing more than half to continue practicing medicine. Some doctors, a reporter noted, are among the most prolific sex offenders in the country, with hundreds of victims. (2) District Judge Joseph Boeckmann (in Arkansass rural Cross County) resigned in May after the state Judicial Discipline committee found as many as 4,500 nude or semi-nude photos of young men who had been before Boeckmann in court. (Some were naked, being paddled by Boeckmann, who trolled for victims by writing young men notes offering a community service option). For good measure (1) Rhys Holman pleaded guilty to a firearms charge in Melbourne, Australia, in July for shooting 53 bullets into his brothers Xbox. (The brother had urinated on Holmans car.) (2) Mauricio Morales-Caceres, 24, was sentenced to life in prison by a Montgomery County, Maryland, judge in July following his April conviction for fatally stabbing a friend 89 times.Celebrity news (1) Police in Southampton, N.Y., confirmed a July altercation in which model Christie Brinkley water-hosed a woman she had spotted urinating on her beachfront property. Erica Remkus, 36, said her need was urgent after watching a July 4 fireworks show, but Brinkley shouted, How dare you! and, I walk on these rocks (where Remkus had relieved herself). (2) Also in July, actor Brooke Shields made the news when she as a curator of an art show in Southampton, N.Y. managed to rescue a piece that custodians had inadvertently tossed into the garbage. (The cleanup crew had made an understandable mistake, as the statue was a raccoon standing next to a trashcan, ready to rummage.)

HEALTHY LIVING Study links two genes to breast cancer survival INSTITUTE OF CANCER RESEARCHTesting for the activity of two genes could pick out women who are at increased risk of dying from their breast cancers, suggests a new study of almost 2,000 patients. Women whose tumors had a specific pattern of activity in the two genes were three times as likely to die within 10 years as others with a different pattern of activity. Scientists at The Institute of Cancer Research, London, spotted the pattern of gene activity among breast cancer cells with a particular ability to escape from the glue that normally holds them in place. They believe the genes could play a key role in releasing cells from this glue known as the extracellular matrix so they can spread round the body. The research, funded by The Institute of Cancer Research and Breast Cancer Now, could be used to develop tests for aggressive breast cancers, or even to identify new targets for cancer treatment. The study, published in the journal Oncotarget, looked at breast cancer cells that were positive for the protein HER2 the target for the drug Herceptin, which is found in around 20 percent of tumors. The ICR researchers developed a new image-based screening technique in order to identify cancer cells that didnt stick to the protein laminin which helps build scaffolding around cells to glue them together. They found that these cells tended to have high activity in a gene called F12 and low activity in another called STC2. When the researchers analyzed the same genes among 1,964 breast cancers, they found that this pattern of activity was strongly linked to survival. Women whose tumors had high F12 activity and low STC2 activity had a 32 percent chance of dying within 10 years, whereas those with low F12 activity and high STC2 activity had only a 10 percent chance of dying. More research is needed to establish how these genes could interfere with the extracellular matrix and help cancer cells grow and spread. Survival rates for breast cancer are now much higher than they were a few decades ago, but the disease remains deadly once it has spread round the body, said Dr. Paul Huang, leader of the protein networks team at the Institute of Cancer Research. Our study sheds light on how cancer cells unstick themselves from healthy tissue, and it could help pick out women at high risk of their cancer spreading and becoming fatal. Prof. Paul Workman, chief executive of The Institute of Cancer, said, We found that the activity of two genes which may help control how tightly cells are glued together is linked to breast cancer survival. If the results are confirmed in larger studies, it could give us a new way of assessing womens survival chances in the clinic, and adjusting treatment accordingly. We have seen major strides in the treatment of breast cancer, but once it begins to spread round the body it is still often fatal, Mr. Workman said. This new study helps us understand some of the processes that control how breast cancers spread, and identifies a pattern of genetic activity that could be used to pick out women particularly at risk.

NCH Primary Stroke Center program makes strides in the journey to improve What exactly do we mean when we talk about NCH being on a constant journey to improve? One answer can be found in our Primary Stroke Center program, which was first certified in 2014 and is a premier facility for treating a disease that is the No. 5 cause of death in the United States and a leading cause of disability. Almost 90 percent of all stroke care in Collier County is provided by NCH. The mission of the Primate Stroke Center program is to provide prevention, education and optimal care for stroke patients through the use of evidence-based practices and advanced technology, while ensuring dignity and compassion for each person we serve. We have been accredited by the Florida Agency for Healthcare Accreditation as a comprehensive stroke center and received a Gold Plus Award from the American Heart Association. We have also been recognized in the Get with the Guidelines Stroke Honor Roll with an Elite Plus Award for the past two years. Our Primary Stroke Center program recently underwent another successful recertification by The Joint Commission, earning a great review by an independent examiner who concluded her review by suggesting that we go further to apply for the commissions coveted Comprehensive Stroke Center designation. And so we shall. Continuing excellence is the goal of Dr. R. Viktoria Totoraitis, vascular neurologist; Dr. Mazen AbuAwad, interventional radiologist; Brenda Hartmann, RN, MSN, SCRN System Stroke Coordinator; and Diana Trupiano, MSN, RN, SCRN Stroke Navigator. Along with the able help of a team including the ER and our radiology, rehabilitation, laboratory and transportation departments as well as Emergency Medical Services, these caregivers last year served 1,200 people suffering strokes. As important as our overall record of performance is, it is the individual stories of heroism that are most compelling. Dr. AbuAwad told me of a gentleman who had a complete blockage of the carotid artery (the major supplier of blood to half of the brain). As the possibility of paralysis loomed, we collaborated with our neurosurgeon colleagues at Mayo Jacksonville, through our Mayo Clinic Care Network, who performed a complex and unusual bypass procedure taking blood flow from the remaining good side to feed the blocked side. All worked well for the patient for a short time, but unfortunately the bypass began to clog up and the patients physical signs worsened. Dr. AbuAwad and the Mayo neurovascular surgeon called a noted colleague in Japan for advice. Together, they came up with a plan for Dr. AbuAwad to direct a catheter to the compromised graft and gently dilate. The patients blood flow improved and his weakness disappeared. When he awoke, he cried tears of joy at this miracle of international medical collaboration. All of us at NCH are proud to be associated with such competence, diligence, teamwork and excellence that truly distinguish not only our stroke center, but our entire team of caregivers, as we continue our never-ending journey to improve the lives of our families, friends and neighbors.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickWho doesnt love chocolate? Its the stuff of celebrations, holidays and romance. Its filled with feel-good chemicals, and theres even evidence that its good for our health. Dogs love chocolate as much as we do, based on the number of stories Ive heard about canines who crave the sweet stuff. Just about every week, I see or hear from clients whose dogs have gotten into a box of designer chocolates or a bag of Snickers bars or M&Ms. I even remember one Christmas when my brother Bobbys late Yorkie, Buddy, ate an entire 1-pound box of Godiva chocolates. But while dogs who OD on chocolate might get the same flavor enjoyment from it that we do, its not so good for their health. Chocolate contains both caffeine and a substance called theobromine. Both are plant alkaloids, mildly stimulating to humans, but toxic to dogs, who arent able to process theobromine as efficiently as humans. Now, I hear stories all the time about dogs who suffer no ill effects after eating a whole batch of homemade fudge, a bag of Hersheys kisses, a chocolate muffin or cookies dipped in dark chocolate. Thats because chocolates toxic effects known as chocolate toxicosis vary depending on the size of the dog, the amount and type of chocolate eaten, and individual sensitivity. Small dogs, like 6-pound Buddy, are at greater risk than the typical 100-pound Labrador retriever. And dogs who eat chocolate candy adulterated with lots of sugar are usually less at risk than those sophisticated canines who ingest high-quality dark chocolate. The darker and more bitter the chocolate, the more toxic it is, says Justine Lee, DVM, whos double board-certified in toxicology and emergency and critical-care medicine. White and milk chocolate have less theobromine, the poisonous chemical, compared to baking chocolate. That doesnt mean that milk chocolate is necessarily safe. One ounce of milk chocolate per pound of body weight is a potentially lethal dose in dogs. Usually, when dogs down too much chocolate, they vomit it back up. If they ate a 2-pound bag of M&Ms, you might come home to rainbow-colored vomit on your carpet. Sometimes the evidence comes out the other end. Barbara Davis of Corona, California, had an English springer spaniel with a chocolate fetish. One time she consumed an entire sack of Kraft Fudgies, including the little gold plastic wrappers, Davis says. At that time I was living in Manhattan, and it raised quite a few eyebrows as people observed my dog pooping gold in the curb on 52nd Street. If theyre going to have a problem, most dogs start to vomit, have diarrhea or become unusually thirsty within six to 12 hours of ingesting chocolate. Restlessness and a distended abdomen are also signs. More severe side effects such as seizures, a racing heart (tachycardia) and high or low blood pressure can also occur. Death by chocolate isnt just the name of a dessert. Dogs who are highly sensitive to theobromine or who ingest the more toxic dark forms of chocolate, such as cocoa powder or unsweetened baking chocolate, can die from cardiac arrhythmias, hyperthermia or respiratory failure.Another factor is the possible presence of xylitol, a sugar alcohol, in some chocolate products. Its highly toxic to dogs and may be of more concern than the chocolate itself.My brothers dog Buddy indeed needed a trip to the veterinary clinic, but Im happy to report that he survived the incident. When in doubt, Dr. Lee advises, contact the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (888-426-4435) or other pet poison hotline for life-saving advice. They can advise whether or not its a poisoning concern. Pets of the WeekAdoption fees for all black cats sheltered at Humane Society Naples are waived through August.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2016 NEWS A23 THE DIVA DIARIESIn search of a post-Olympics television fixHi, my name is Stephanie, and Im a recovering Olympaholic. I still cant believe the 2016 Summer Olympics are over. For a solid two weeks, I was glued to the games from the dramatic theme music to the skillfully produced commercials (the Proctor & Gamble spot dedicated to Olympic moms will forever grab my heartstrings and bring tears) to the unforgettable moments of hearing our nations anthem played while one of our own stood high and proud on the podium. It was an amazing two weeks that had me hanging on every fabulous televised second. Now that the finale has played and dear, exhausted Bob Costas is (hopefully) enjoying a well-deserved cruise to somewhere other than Brazil, Im faced with the conundrum of what to watch every night, because Im pretty sure Netflix wont be able to offer me anything that can hold a candle to gymnast Simone Biles soaring through the air with head over heels or hips under knees, or Michael Phelps making it on live TV to the most decorated Olympian of all time (28 medals!), or beach volleyball star Kerri Walsh Jennings still killing it on the court at age 38. My husband and I had just started the really good action series Orphan Black on Amazon when the Olympics interrupted our roll. Before that, wed finished season four of Orange Is The New Black and binged through all eight episodes of Stranger Things on Netflix in a mere three days. (Have you seen it yet? You must!) Like no other TV drama, the Olympics sucked me in. I found myself jumping up from the couch and screaming at Katie Ledecky, GO, GO, GO!! as she dominated the pool. When Usain Bolt ran, I pumped my fists right along with him. And Im not going to lie: While watching the mens diving competition, I was awed by the talent of the athletes and equally impressed by their ability to accomplish such great feats in such itty-bitty, wee, teeny-tiny Speedos. Well done, boys well done, indeed and thank you. The lady who really made me want to get up in the morning and do something other than drink coffee and check Facebook was Oksana Chusovitana, the 41-year-old gymnast from Uzbekistan. This veteran athlete was competing at her seventh Olympic games. She earned her first medal when she was a teenager and, according to an interview with The New York Times, says shell be back for the 2020 games in Tokyo at age 45. And yet, Im busily logging my steps on my FitBit as I stroll through Publix picking up a rotisserie chicken and a box of Chardonnay. Oh, Olympics, Im going to miss you. But Im no slouch: If ever I need motivation to go to the gym, I have womens beach volleyball (U.S.A. vs. Brazil) saved on my DVR. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS email@example.com LEONARD ZHUKOVSKY / SHUTTERSTOCK Olympic champion Simone Biles of the United States kept us glued to the television for two weeks during the Olympics.

B7-8 Opinions, impressions, intuitions, feelings, and distinct reactions not many American adults lack one of the above when it comes to the workplace practice of brown-nosing. Brown-nosing, aka kissing ass, cozying up, kissing up or in academic terms ingratiating, is the habit of personally soliciting individuals of higher authority or rank for gain at work. But it can be misunderstood or wrongly identified. And its effect in the workplace may be positive, especially for beginning employees watching others ingratiate themselves, according to a new study by two researchers published in The Journal of Applied Psychology. If you could sit down with your supervisor for an hour and talk, that would be the best way to form an impression, but we dont all have that opportunity, explains Trevor Foulk, a doctoral candidate in the School of Management at the University of Florida, Gainesville. He conducted the study with a colleague, David Long, from Virginias College of William and Mary. As a result, the researchers say, when new employees see others who praise bosses, make queries about personal matters or offer favors, they tend to Kissing ... in the ... in the workplace workplaceSo, interpersonal interactions arent limited to the dyads that comprise them.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Saving With BondsThe stock market is a great way to build long-term wealth, but for shortterm money, consider U.S. savings bonds, which are guaranteed by the U.S. government. Treasury bonds pay interest twice a year and mature in 30 years. Heres a brief review of some key bonds: Series EE Bonds: These have replaced the Series E bonds. Their current interest rate (through October 2016) is fixed, recently at 0.10 percent. Series H or HH Bonds: You may still hold these bonds, but you cant buy new ones anymore. Theyve been discontinued. I Bonds: These offer inflation protection, with their interest rate a combination of a fixed rate (established at the time of purchase) and a floating rate thats adjusted every six months based on the Consumer Price Index for urban users (CPI-U). The most recent composite interest rate is 0.26 percent.The bonds above are exempt from state and local taxes. (EE and I Bonds have the additional tax advantage of tax deferral, and can be tax-free if used for qualified highereducation expenses.) They can be purchased commission-free at savingsbonds. gov and sometimes also through your local bank or other financial institution.Savings bonds are not at their most attractive right now, with interest rates so low, so consider other (albeit riskier) alternatives, too, such as healthy dividendpaying stocks. Other low-risk, low-interest options include Treasury bills, with maturities up to a year, and Treasury notes, with maturities between two and 10 years.Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) are another possibility. Theyre Treasuries, not savings bonds, but they offer inflation protection and are exempt from state and local taxes. The interest rate on TIPS stays the same, but the principal is adjusted to keep up with inflation. TIPS are sold via auction, with the interest rate set at that time, and with maturities of five, 10 or 30 years. While savings bonds are not generally traded, TIPS can be bought and sold in the secondary market making them more volatile than bonds. IPO ImpatienceMy dumbest investment was buying stock in the electric-car maker Tesla near when it had its IPO for around $17 or $18 per share and then selling those shares when they hit $24. As you know, shares were recently trading for around $230 apiece. R.R., onlineThe Fool Responds: You lost out on having a -bagger in your portfolio a stock that has increased in value twelvefold. Its not necessarily the dumb mistake that you think it is, though. The IPO (initial public offering) when a company first issues shares of itself to trade on the open market did rather well, popping by more than 40 percent on its first day and then generally growing in value, though not in a straight line. Many IPOs are not that successful, and studies have shown that most tend to underperform similar counterparts during the first five years. Its usually better to wait for newly IPOed companies to have a few years of public performance behind them before investing, giving the initial excitement a chance to die down. Remember, too, that few of us can ever buy IPO shares at their lower initial price those generally go to the wellconnected. Teslas future is far from certain at this point, keeping many investors away. Its off to a strong start with its well-received cars, but other carmakers are coming out with more electric vehicles, too. Chipping AwayNXP Semiconductors (NASDAQ: NXPI) is the worlds largest automotive chipmaker, and it also supplies the smartphone industry and others with chips. The company is a long-term play on the interconnectedness of everything, often referred to as the Internet of Things, or IoT. NXPs offerings help devices communicate with one another, such as a smartphone communicating payment information to a point-of-sale device via near-field communication chips. This technology isnt going to blossom overnight, but rather over the course of five to 15 years. Its been estimated that the global IoT market could be worth $14.4 trillion by 2022. Also working in NXPs favor is its 2015 merger with Freescale Semiconductor, which created the fourth-largest semiconductor company in the world, if you exclude memory developers. It cemented NXP as the market leader in general-purpose microcontroller products, mobile payment-based semiconductor solutions and automotive semiconductor solutions. On top of expected cost synergies tied to the merger, the deal is also expected to give NXP much-improved leverage on pricing with its customers, which should ultimately help improve its profit margins. With NXPs recent price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio well below its five-year average, it appears to be a promising longterm investment. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended NXP Semiconductors.) I trace my roots back to 1912, when I was the Metal Office Furniture Co., based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. (This was notable, as Grand Rapids was known for wood furniture.) My first product, in 1914, was an innovative wastebasket made of steel that was strong, inexpensive, fireproof and indestructible. In 1934 I patented suspension file cabinets. In 1942 I won a contract to equip U.S. naval ships with lightweight steel furnishings. Today, Im a leading office furniture company, with annual sales of about $3 billion. I employ close to 10,000 people and support more than 650 dealers. Who am I? (Answer: Steelcase) Protect YourselfQHow much personal liability insurance is it smart to buy? H.M., Leyden, WisconsinAIt all depends on how much money you have to lose if youre sued. Add up the value of your home, your belongings and your financial assets. Tack on some more for legal costs. (Insurance companies will sometimes provide a lawyer.) The goal is to protect yourself so that a lawsuit wont wipe you out or cause major financial difficulties. If your value total is rather hefty, look into getting an umbrella personal liability policy from your insurance company or another. Umbrella policies generally offer much more liability coverage ($1 million or more) at much lower premiums than individual policies such as homeowners, renters and automobile insurance. If you have a lot to lose, you can increase your protection with an umbrella policy. Learn more at sites such as investopedia.com/personalfinance/insurance and iii.org. ***QCan I buy fewer than 100 shares of a companys stock? M.B., Northlakes, North CarolinaAYes. You can buy just one share, but if it costs $20 and youre paying a $10 trading commission, youre down 50 percent immediately. Its better to try not to pay more than 1 or 2 percent of your trades value in commissions so with a $10 commission, aim to spend (or reap) $500 or more. You might, alternatively, buy stock directly from a company, such as through a dividend reinvestment plan (a Drip), where you can get fractions of shares at a time. For example, a $50 contribution would buy you half a share of a $100 stock.

MONEY & INVESTINGCisco, gambling on Internet of Things, a good buy for investorsIoT. An acronym virtually unheard of a few years ago that is now at the strategic core of some of the largest technology companies of the world. This is one of the key challenges facing investors today the incredibly rapid pace of innovation and with it wealth creation and destruction. In the past, great companies took decades to rise and fall. Today, a corporation can be the largest in the world one minute and just a few years later barely be visible on investors radar. A company that illustrates this rapid rise and fall is Cisco Systems. Just 15 years ago the most valuable company in the world, Cisco is now attempting to find its place in a swiftly changing landscape. In 2013 it fired 4,000 employees, in 2014 it fired 6,000 workers and just last week the company announced another round of layoffs affecting 5,500 people. So what is going on at Cisco? Is this a good investment? And what can we learn from the turmoil surrounding this company? Cisco Systems was founded in 1984 by two Stanford University computer science professionals and the company went public in 1990 at a market capitalization of around $225 million. Cisco (abbreviated from the city San Francisco) basically made devices that allowed computers to communicate with each other over the new phenomenon, the internet. And in the 90s and early 2000s, Cisco dominated this explosive area of technology. By 2000, the company was worth over $500 billion. Cisco looked to be unstoppable and analysts believed the company would dominate for decades to come. But then came the dot-com crash. And newly formed companies like Juniper Networks and more established names like Alcatel-Lucent found better ways to transfer data over the internet. Ciscos value and earnings plummeted as a result, with its stock price falling almost 90 percent. Cisco was forced to slash its workforce and find a new direction. Today Cisco is attempting to return to its glory days by focusing its attention in two main areas. The first is cloud computing and data storage where the company faces significant competition from the likes of Amazon and Microsoft. And the second is IoT, which holds significant promise for Cisco. IoT stands for the Internet of Things and many believe this is the future of technology. Today, the internet is dominated by computers, tablets and smart phones. But many believe that in just a few years almost all new electronic devices from cars to home appliances will be networked together online. Imagine that your smart phones calendar knows you are having a cocktail party. It can talk with your refrigerator to know that you need more beer and on your way home route your car to a grocery store that is having a sale on your favorite brand and pre-order it for you so it is ready for you when you arrive. By leveraging its ability to network computers, Cisco hopes to dominate this IoT future. To this end, it recently spent $1.4 billion to acquire Jasper, a leading IoT platform. If Cisco is successful in this venture, the company may reclaim its place as the most dominant and valuable technology company in the world. Currently, it trades at a relatively low P/E of around 15 and pays a healthy dividend of 3.4 percent, so it is not like the company has huge valuation hurdles to overcome and investors can cash nice dividend checks as they wait. I think Cisco is definitely a company to keep on a growth investors radar.But thinking beyond Cisco, the companys saga teaches a powerful lesson about reviewing the companies in your portfolio. Assumptions about future profitability must be constantly analyzed and challenged. High market share today does not automatically mean high market share tomorrow. Even great companies like Apple and Walmart are learning that they must constantly innovate to survive. Smart investors will need to determine which companies are succeeding in responding to a rapidly changing market place and which are just holding on to past successes and respond accordingly. ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com BARGAR MEDLIN MADIA PERCHALL ON THE MOVE
B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYdevelop more positive impressions of a bosss warmth and value, something that doesnt happen with veteran employees; they usually discount kissing up as a reliable source of information. This study shows that this behavior can affect our impressions of others, Mr. Foulk says. If youre a newcomer and I want you to like the supervisor, I can manage your impression by ingratiating the supervisor in front of you. Its almost like throwing your voice. For men and women who have or had careers in Florida both bosses and workers alike reactions to kissing up range from tolerant or amused to indignant or disgusted. Ive never run into (a brown-noser) in Palmdale it might be nice, says Patty Thielen Register, owner with her husband Allen of the celebrated roadside home of Florida reptiles, Gatorama, in Palmdale. People who work at Gatorama may spend so much time kissing up to alligators and crocodiles very carefully that they dont have time to ingratiate themselves with mere bosses who wont try to eat them. But that isnt the case elsewhere. Lalai Hamric, former CEO of Lee Family Health Centers, has seen many a brownnoser in her time. Ive been the boss. Ive seen the kissups that are so insincere its nauseating. Ive been taken advantage of by my vulnerability (and) Ive been touched by truly sincere, caring employees. Ive also been guilty of misjudging a good person because I was lied to by bad ones I thought to be good. For that Ill be forever sorry. Bosses are just like real people. We like to be liked and to have fun. Its difficult to be boss and to let all into your life. I found I couldnt do it. That old saying is true: Its lonely at the top. For Peter Gloggner, vice president and chief human resources officer at Jupiter Medical Center, the synonyms for ingratiating may be pejorative, but the act itself, done with respect, is not. I like the term ingratiating. I dont think it has a negative connotation, he explains. As I read the research, I wasnt surprised. I started to think about the relationships Ive had with previous bosses and current bosses, and I asked my human resources director, who thinks its a good thing. To have a good relationship with your boss helps down the road if there are contentious issues or disagreements. You can work through problems. Which helps, especially since you spend a third of your life at work. And if there are performance problems, he adds, a good relationship can help the boss address them. The kissing up part is interesting because that does have a negative connotation. But I dont see ingratiating as kissing up, as long as you have respect for the person. And that raises another question: Is the old mantra in business, Its not personal, the wrong way to approach employees or employers, since many Americans spend significant portions of their waking lives working and therefore living in workplace relationships? Academia can help understand the answer, perhaps. The notion that its not personal is not very applicable in business, at least when it comes to the way interpersonal interactions influence business o utcomes. There is certainly a place for (it) because very often the personal nature of things has to be suspended for business purposes (as in situations where unpleasant layoffs are necessary), Mr. Foulk explains. But the notion that work is by its nature impersonal is not very supported by research. In fact, the opposite: Research suggests that interpersonal interactions drive many workplace outcomes. We already know that interpersonal interactions like ingratiation can influence the way the ingratiated boss feels about the ingratiatory. But what we show (in our study) is that ingratiation has secondorder personal effects. It also influences the way observers feel about the parties involved in the ingratiation. So, interpersonal interactions arent limited to the dyads that comprise them. Rather, theyre embedded in a complex and dynamic work environment, and this means their effects are much more complicated. Unless they arent, and that may depend on perception. Theres a difference between liking and respecting the boss and brown-nosing, says Beverly Mott, a Charlotte Countybased IT expert. One is earned, the other is given. And I dont know how to TELL you how to spot the difference, but I sure do know the difference when its up close and personal. As a boss, I liked the brown-nosers. As a co-worker, they were despised as l owly worms. Its all a matter of perspective. For Perry Bihari, a longtime telephone lineman and now service technician for CenturyLink in south and central Florida, his colleagues can brown-nose all they can I dont care. As long as they do their JOBS! That kind of levelheaded willingness not to judge is shared by Stacey Chadwick Brown, as well. A mental health therapist and staff clinician at Florida Gulf Coast University, she puts it this way: Brown-nosing can be a survival tool, and not necessarily a bad thing. I guess it depends on how you define it. I tend to think of it in terms of motivation. Sometimes people try to get along and please the boss because its a difficult work environment, or because theres bullying or emotional abuse going on thats when its a survival tool. I dont think its healthy if someone has a manipulative plan, with intentional harm to co-workers, or something illegal is up. But genuine schmoozing is perfectly legitimate, although it may be annoying to others. And young folks trying to climb the ladder may be inclined to go above and beyond to be recognized or gain favor. Thats not necessarily a bad thing. KISSINGFrom page 1BROWN FOULK Brown-nosing can be a survival tool, and not necessarily a bad thing. I guess it depends on how you define it.

An increase in inventory to 4,801 homes is welcome news to homebuyers following record-low inventory in July 2015. Median closed prices remained steady for price segments above $300,000, which is more good news to buyers, and increased 11 percent in the under $300,000 category. NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County, excluding Marco Island. Prices continue to remain stable, and we are absorbing the inventory,: says Jeff Jones, managing broker at the NaplesPark Shore office of Coldwell Banker. As the report reveals, a decrease in pending and closed sales in July had nothing to do with prices. Properties priced right were selling. We sold 627 homes, only 99 fewer than in July 2015, which was a very good year. Bill Coffey, broker manager of Amerivest Realty Naples, agrees. Prices are remaining the same regardless of the increased inventory, he says. Interestingly, the median closed price is up 7 percent from July a year ago to $300,000, when one would think prices would drop due to the 36 percent increase in inventory. Unlike other areas of the country, real estate sales in Naples decline during the off-season summer months. This pause is a familiar expectation, due to a majority of second homebuyers retreating to their Northern homes during the summer months. The decline in July sales might also be due to the increase in the Canadian exchange rate and tourism being off this summer. Brokers anticipate the market will take off again in season. Days on the market for all price categories above $300,000 are returning to a normal range, Mr. Coffey notes, add-Area brokers see a steady summer seasonBuilt in 2014 at the end of a culde-sac in The Isles of Collier Preserve, this courtyard-style home provides plenty of outdoor living space with both a large private courtyard for entertaining as well as a lanai overlooking a bird preserve.

The July 2016 statistics show a 25 decrease in overall pending sales (homes under contract), down to 681 from 913 in July 2015 (year over year). Overall closed sales decreased 14 percent, to 627 from 726 in July 2015 (year over year). In comparison, overall closed sales decreased 2 percent from July 2014 to July 2015 (year over year). However, inventory decreased 1 percent between July 2014 and July 2015 and increased 36 percent between July 2015 and July 2016. Despite a drop in overall closed sales, closed sales for single-family homes in the $500,000 to $1 million category increased 26 percent in July 2016, to 72 homes this year from 57 in July 2015 (year over year). This segments median closed price decreased 7 percent, down to $627,000 this year from $672,000 in July 2015 (year over year). The latest numbers also show a 44 percent decrease in median closed price for condominiums in the $2 million and above category (year over year). In July 2015, the median closed price for high-end condominiums was $4,395,000 (year over year). This year, the median closed price dropped to $2,450,000 (year over year). This price segment also saw the highest increase in inventory of all other home types in July 2016, going up 79 percent to 84 condominiums from 47 a year ago. The NABOR July 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. Among the activity of interest: Overall pending sales in the Immokalee/Ave Maria geographic area (ZIP code 34142) increased 25 percent, to five pending sales in July 2016 from four pending sales in July 2015. Closed sales for single-family homes in the East Naples geographic area (34114, 34117, 34120, 34137) increased 39 percent, to 104 homes in July 2016 from 75 a year ago. Median closed prices for condominiums in the Naples beach geographic area (34102, 34103, 34108) increased 28 percent, up to $725,000 in July 2016 from $567,000 in July 2015. Inventory for single-family homes in the $300,000 and below category did not change between July 2015 and July 2016. Inventory for condominiums in the North Naples geographic area (34109, 23110, 23119) increased 74 percent, to 637 condominiums in July 2016 from 367 a year ago. Activity in the Naples beach area surprised NABOR broker analysts, with the median closed price for single-family homes dropping 26 percent and the median closed price for condominiums increasing 28 percent (year over year). When they find it, they buy it, says Coco Waldenmayer, a managing broker at John R. Wood Properties. Whether they are baby boomers or international, buyers know what they are looking for in Naples.

The pieces were voted on at preview reception at The von Liebig Art Center earlier this month. Your Choice is an annual non-juried exhibition open to artwork in all media. It provides an opportunity for NAA member artists to present their works to a larger audience with no jury process requirement. Of the 500-plus people in attendance at the preview reception, 350 went to the polling place and voted for one of the 122 candidates on the ballot. The votes were tallied by the Collier County Supervisor of Elections Office and Heather Wysocki. The Your Choice 2016 award recipients are as follows: Best of Show ($500): Michele Finnegan, Creating Freedom Rocks, acrylic on Vogue magazine. Its Thursday, but The Barrel Room at the Twisted Vine Bistro in downtown Fort Myers is packed like a Saturday night, with every seat in the room taken. Right now, its standing room only. All eyes are on the postage stamp-sized stage in the rear of the narrow room. The platform is so small theres barely enough room for the jazz quartet thats playing. The musicians take turns soloing, and the crowd applauds enthusiastically.

After strolling around and enjoying the distinctive layout of the store, I just had to share Ms. Jeffersons vision with my readers. Q: How and why is P.J. Boox different from other bookstores? A: In many ways we are just like every other bookstore youve ever been in: We offer great mysteries, romance, poetry, childrens books and a bunch of other genres. In spite of that, almost everyone who walks through our doors knows that we are definitely NOT like any other bookstore that they have ever seen. I suppose it starts with the fact that our books are all displayed face out. You can see the cover of every book that we offer. Turns out that the adage of dont judge a book by its cover is really about making assumptions about people and not books at all. Of course the biggest difference is the fact that the books we sell are all by independently or small press published authors from around the world. What does that mean for the average reader? Not much actually. I have never yet met a reader who cared who the publisher of a book was; they just want a good story with characters they can love or hate. Working with these authors directly gives us different advantages than a big box store does. For instance, most of our books are signed by the author and we can Skype or Facetime with them for a book club. Q: How does your selection process work? A: For a long time, independent or small press publishing had a bit of a stigma as being an inferior product to traditionally published books. In the recent years, however, independent authors have fought to correct that ill-conceived notion We get submissions on our website directly from authors, and we also solicit select authors online. We judge the books by their cover designs and by whether the manuscript was professionally edited. We look at reviews in places like Amazon and Goodreads. We check out the authors other marketing platforms, and we are especially interested in books that have won national or international book awards. Q: What is your business model? A: From a customer standpoint, we run just like any other bookstore: We have books available in many genres, and we have places that a reader can sit and enjoy a chapter or two. You can talk about books and literature with the staff. Behind the scenes, however, our business model is something new to the book industry. We work on a consignment system similar to how antique malls have always run. The authors rent shelf space and we pay them out 98 percent of all sales. It is difficult sometimes for independent authors to get into a brick and mortar bookstore, and when they do, often the store will take between 40 percent and 60 percent. Those margins dont always work out well for the author. As an author myself, I get that. Its also challenging to find the time to balance between work, family, writing and marketing. P.J. Boox strives to offer another avenue of promotion for authors who dont have big publishing houses behind them. Q: Have you made discoveries youd like to single out? A: One of the things we pride ourselves in is the number of national and international book award winners that we have on our shelves. Childrens book author Lee Ann Mancini has won more than a dozen awards for her Adventures of the Sea Kids series. Lawyer/author Russel Lazega has won numerous awards for his memoir Managing Bubbie, w hich was just done as an audio book featuring actress Linda Lavin. Our readers are discovering authors that really resonate with them. 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.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYPHOTOS BY VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYGerald Augustin on sax, Tony Vigilante on drums, Brandon Robertson on bass, and Dan Miller on trumpet spice up The Barrel Room.(though on this particular night, someones sitting in for Mr. Del Gatto on saxophone, as hes in Europe). On the stage: Brandon Robertson on stand-up bass, Tony Vigilante on drums, Gerald Augustin on tenor sax and Mr. Miller on trumpet. Theyre dressed casually, in short-sleeved shirts. And though its already unbearably summer-sizzling in Southwest Florida, this quartets playing jazz so hot its raising the temperatures. They end one tune and start right in on Bye Bye Blackbird with a loping swing. They play Whats New? a languid, romantic ballad by Bob Haggart that makes you want to get up and slow dance with someone. Then, Victor Youngs Stella By Starlight. They close with Caravan, playing it at breakneck speed, rousing the crowd to its feet with cheers and applause. As a jazz lover living here for 34 years, theres not a lot of places you can go to hear real live jazz thats not restricted, says Judi Woods of Fort Myers Beach. Luckily, The Barrel Room, in all their wisdom, has invited Dan Miller to bring his people here. He said to me (during a break), Im bringing the young bloods here young jazz musicians who are shocking the socks off of people. The fledgling venue is an offshoot of the Twisted Vine Bistro (theres a doorway between the two inside as well as separate entrances on Bay Street). With its brick and wood walls (the latter reclaimed from an Ohio barn) and the wooden fronts of bourbon barrels, The Barrel Room makes patrons feel as if theyre in a distillery. This is so wonderful! says Patrick Day, whos sitting with his wife Anne Dodd and a small group of friends. You dont even feel like youre in Fort Myers. You could be anywhere in America. Mr. Del Gatto played with the Saturday Night Live Band on the show from its beginnings in 1975 to 1979 and also from 1985 to 2005. Mr. Miller played trumpet in Harry Connick Jr.s band, touring all over the world, appearing on three television specials and recording four albums with him. He also played in the Woody Herman Orchestra and in Wynton Marsaliss Big Band. Both men are also members of the Naples Jazz Orchestra, which last year performed a full season on concerts at Golden Gate High School. Area jazz aficionados can see them perform for just the price of a drink at The Barrel Room from 7-10 p.m. every Thursday. In addition to jazz on Thursday nights, the space presents live blues starting at 9 p.m. every Friday and Saturday. Its a great room, says Mr. Miller. The sound is fabulous. Were playing all acoustically, no amplification. Because of the wood and the brick, its got an incredible acoustic sound. We love playing there. They also love the artistic freedom. One of the best things about it is, were allowed to do whatever we want musically, so we play as hard as we want, he says. There are no limitations. Sometimes when youre playing in a restaurant or a club, they like you to play a cocktail set or a softer first hour or two which is fine, he adds. But The Barrel Room has the flavor of a New York jazz club, where we can hit it from the very beginning. Thats very appealing to us. Patrons are gratified too, filling the place week after week. Its been like that, standing room only, and thats great, Mr. Miller says. People downtown really appreciate the arts and music. We have a real eclectic crowd of artists and musicians and theater people and music lovers Were excited to be able to do high intensity swinging jazz music and be able to deliver it for them in a way thats really fun for us.Filling the nicheThe owners of the Twisted Vine Bistro and The Barrel Room, Steve and Denise Hollister, hired Kevin Blinkal as general manager to book the music for the new venue. I used to run Buddy Guys in Chicago, he says, naming the club owned by the well-known blues guitarist. Mr. Blinkals brother, the guitarist professionally known as Frank Bang, toured the world with Mr. Guy for five years and also has a band of his own: Frank Bang and the Cook County Kings, who have played at the Barrel Room and are expected to return. Like the Hollisters, Mr. Blinkal is from Chicago. The three of us, as a team, have been great, Mr. Blinkal says. We have the same taste in music. They had this vision and theyve been rolling with it. On the weekends, people were going to The Firestone for the dance music they do and to City Tavern for the country music and bands they put in there, Mr. Hollister says, referring to the two restaurants flanking his. I thought, why dont we do the music we like in the middle? We decided to do jazz and blues. Were about the quality of the food and wine and ambiance, and we wanted that to carry over into our music. We felt a niche was there. The Hollisters traveled to blues clubs in Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Sarasota, St. Petersburg and Tampa. We started meeting bands and talking to them, he says. We tapped into some national agents; when theyre booking people on a traveling gig, Tampa to Miami, were in the middle. The best advice he was given, he says, was: Protect your stage; put the best quality people up there that you can. We try not to put anyone up there that we havent heard somewhere else, or that we have a strong recommendation for from someone we trust, he says. They hope to bring blues singer Sari Schorr, whos toured with Joe Bonamassa, to The Barrel Room. People compare her voice to Joni Mitchells, Mr. Hollister says. She did a remake of Black Betty. Thats the kind of people were looking to bring through here. Theyve booked Albert Castiglia, whos played with Junior Wells, for January; and Chicago bluesman Joe Moss for April. Although a date has not been announced, JL Fulks and Frank Bang and the Cook County Kings are also in the lineup. Also in the plans: extending jazz to a second night on Wednesday and adding a Sunday gospel brunch with Southern food. Mr. Hollister also wants to add a late night menu. Theres nowhere to eat late night downtown, he says. We want to be the place where people can come in. Hes also thinking of introducing a cover charge once season starts and selling tickets in advance online for some shows. Some nights, he says, the musicians question whether they should begin, because there are only a few people in the room. He tells them to start playing, and keeps the front door open. Within 15 minutes, the place is full, he says. The music lures them in. People (out on the sidewalk) say, Oh, this is that place I heard about. People are talking about us. We want to be the place, he says. Its hot right now.

Hilton Naples ARTS COMMENTARYAn absurd, surrealistic one-act delivers cheesy, oddball funIts hard to know what to say about The Book of Liz, except: This is one odd little play. Of course, this shouldnt be any surprise, as the one-act show is playing at Theatre Conspiracy, which specializes in odd and unusual. Plus, its written by brother and sister David and Amy Sedaris, known for their comedic essays and commentary. David Sedaris is also the author of The Santaland Diaries, which is a Southwest Florida cult favorite. The Book of Liz opens in the religious community of Cluster Haven, with lush, sweeping strings playing Sweet Hour of Prayer. Rev. Tollhouse (Jim Yarnes) kneels on a pillow, praying a long, boring, tedious prayer, the bulk of which seems to consist of him boasting to the Lord about how righteous and wonderful a servant he is. Rev. Tollhouse is bearded, sans moustache, and could be Amish or Mennonite though the script refers to him and the people of Cluster Haven as Squeamish. They are known for their delicious cheeseballs, which are made by Sister Elizabeth Donderstock (Joann Haley) and seem to be the main source of income for the religious community. The reverend is one of those dangerous people: clueless, but in a position of authority. Mr. Yarnes plays him with bumbling self-righteousness, spouting aphorisms. When Brother Nathaniel Brightbee (Trevor Beauvois-Kinney) joins the community, he takes over Sister Donderstocks job of making the cheeseballs, reasoning that he, being a man, can of course do it better. Sister Donderstock, demoted from her job, is distraught. Not only did she have to reveal her secret recipe, but she doesnt feel called to her new job of harvesting chives. She winds up leaving the community. Rachel Burttram, a member of the Florida Repertory Theatres ensemble, plays Sister Constance Butterworth. (The Sedaris siblings have invented names worthy of Dickens or perhaps they were just looking in their pantry.) A fluttery, highly anxious gossip, her self-righteousness barely clothed with a thin veneer of false modesty, Sister Constance thrives on catastrophe. When there isnt one, she doesnt mind fanning the flames a little. She informs Rev. Tollhouse that Sister Donderstock is missing. Out in the secular world, Sister Donderstock bumps into a giant-sized Mr. Peanut who speaks with a British accent. The costume, complete with top hat and monocle (designed by Tasmin Moore) is eerily accurate; unfortunately, however, it prevents its actor, Ms. Burttram, from being heard clearly. Life just gets stranger and stranger for Sister Donderstock, who is now known as Liz. The Mr. Peanut costume-wearer turns out to be Oxana from Ukrania, though she speaks with a Cockney accent. Liz dons the Mr. Peanut costume herself, then winds up working at the Plymouth Crock, a family restaurant run by Visil (Mr. Yarnes again), a proud 12-stepper and a sponsor for other recovering alcoholics. (Mr. Beauvois-Kinney plays Donny, a perpetually dissatisfied worker.) Liz fits right in, with her modest, black and white religious outfit looking like a pilgrims. (One of her co-workers mistakes it for an earlier version of their uniform.) Ms. Burttram makes a priceless appearance as Cecily, a jaded, seen-itall, done-it-all waitress. And this is the conceit of the play: Liz is Liz throughout, though she changes and grows, but the three other actors play a variety of roles, some more successfully than others. (Like Alfred Hitchcock, director Steve Hooper makes an extremely brief nonspeaking cameo as Brother Hezekiah.) Ms. Haleys Sister Donderstock is pale and pasty, sweating constantly. She has perhaps the most challenging role, as shes confined to a single costume one that reveals only her face and hands. But she makes the most of it with her varied facial expressions, looking dismayed or confused, or brightening up when she learns something. Her character shows the most growth over the course of the play, and she endears herself to the audience. Shes introduced to other types of communities when she leaves her own religious community: the community of recovering alcoholics, and the family you make with friends, both more loving and kind than the community she walked away from at Cluster Haven. Like the actors, the scenery (by Theatre Conspiracy founder Bill Taylor) has multiple roles. Seven oversized red books with gold lettering tower over the actors on the stage. During the play, various books are spun around to reveal minimalist scenery. The Book of Liz is odd and funny, but on opening night, this comedy didnt induce as much laughter as I thought it might. (When the giant Mr. Peanut appears, you could almost feel the audiences mass confusion.) Several individual scenes or performances are very funny (Rev. Tollhouses self-serving prayers, and a scene where you could see the clothing tag hanging from his stage beard. And Ms. Burttram is funny whenever shes on stage, especially as Sister B utterw orth, gossiping and lusting after Brother Brightbee, and conducting a blind taste test of his bland cheeseballs versus ones made by Sister Donderstock. The latter is an especially priceless scene.) But while individual performances are outstanding, director Mr. Hooper doesnt get it all to work together as a comedic cohesive whole. Perhaps that will come over time with more performances. The Book of Liz is definitely an odd little play, a surrealistic, absurd dream with Amish-like people, AA adherents and an oversized dapper peanut. If you like weird, you just might love this collection of oddballs and cheeseballs. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com The Book of Liz>> Who: Theatre Conspiracy >> When: Through Aug. 27 >> Where: The Alliance for the Arts, Fort Myers >> Cost: $24 ($11 for students) >> Info: 936-3239 or theatreconspiracy.org COURTESY PHOTOSSister Constance Butterworth (Rachel Burttram), right, upbraids Sister Elizabeth Donderstock (Joann Haley).

CONTRACT BRIDGEThe science of card readingBY STEVE BECKERCard-reading is the art of deducing how the opponents cards are divided. Each bid made and each card played by the defenders tells a story. The trick is to read the story, interpret it correctly, and then find a way, if possible, to take advantage of the knowledge gained. Take this case where South wound up in four hearts after West had overcalled with one spade. West led the queen of spades, and East took dummys king with the ace. East returned a spade, taken by West, who then led his singleton diamond to dummys jack. Declarers problem now was to avoid the loss of more than one trump trick. South realized that he would have to lose more than one trump trick if the opposing hearts were divided 4-1 or 5-0. Only if the hearts were divided 3-2 was there a chance of losing just one trump trick. But this alone would not do the job. The player with the doubleton heart would have to have the ace if the contract was to be made. And the first heart lead would have to come from the correct hand to have any chance of success. Since West had made a vulnerable overcall on a queen-high suit, it seemed likely that he had the ace of hearts. The first heart play therefore had to come from the South hand. Accordingly, declarer crossed to his hand with a club at trick four and led a low heart. West played low, and dummys queen held. On the next heart, East produced the ten and, with fingers crossed, South ducked. West was forced to win with the ace, and the contract was home. The key to the winning play was Wests spade bid after East had turned up with the ace of spades at trick one. All that remained was to work out how to take advantage of the knowledge that West had the ace of hearts. Florida Weekly goes PINK for Breast Cancer AWARENESS!

C14 WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY FILM CAPSULESSouthside with You (Tika Sumpter, Parker Sawyers, Vanessa Bell Calloway) Heres the story of Barack and Michelle Obamas first date during a hot summer day in 1989. Only the locations are accurate, however; the dialog is fictionalized, which is a downer given the films inherent appeal. Combine that with low-budget production values and standard editing, and the whole thing plays like a made-for-TV movie. Rated PG-13.Ben-Hur 1/2(Jack Huston, Toby Kebbell, Morgan Freeman) At the time of Jesus Christ (Rodrigo Santoro), a Jewish prince (Mr. Huston) is forced into slavery by his adopted brother (Mr. Kebbell), who is a Roman soldier. The story drags and the performances do little to enliven the stilted dialog; two decent actions sequences are the lone saving grace. Rated PG-13.Hell or High Water 1/2(Ben Foster, Chris Pine, Jeff Bridges) A Texas Ranger (Mr. Bridges) tracks two bank-robbing brothers (Mr. Foster and Mr. Pine) in this superb neo-western. A great drama highlighted by fantastic writing and even better performances, its one of the best movies of the year. Rated R.Florence Foster Jenkins (Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Rebecca Ferguson) In 1944 New York City, wealthy socialite Florence Foster Jenkins (Ms. Streep) aspires to be an opera singer in spite of her notable lack of ability. Ms. Streep and Mr. Grant are a formidable duo, but its director Stephen Frears (Philomena) striking just the right tone of laughing at Florence but with the movie that makes it all work. Rated PG-13.Suicide Squad 1/2(Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto) The worlds most dangerous criminals are given a reprieve from prison to fight a deadly witch (Cara Delevingne). Robbie steals the movie as Jokers (Mr. Leto) squeeze Harley Quinn, and the action and soundtrack keep things popping, but the story has numerous problems. Set in the same DC Comics universe as Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Rated PG-13.Jason Bourne 1/2(Matt Damon, Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones) Bourne (Damon) gets new information about his past and has to fight off the CIA agents (Vikander, Jones, Vincent Cassel) who want him dead. The story has head scratching moments, but the action is tense and exciting. Make sure youre up to speed on the three previous Damon-led Bourne films or youll be lost. Rated PG-13.Caf Society (Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Steve Carell) Twenty-something Bobby (Eisenberg) moves to L.A. and falls in love with his uncles (Mr. Carell) assistant (Ms. Stewart), then returns home to the Bronx to run a nightclub with his brother (Corey Stoll). Writer/director Woody Allen is in fine form as he provides laughs and dramatic twists in this engaging coming of age tale set in an idyllic 1930s. Rated PG-13. AUTHENTIC RECIPES.

YesPart boxing movie and part biopic, Hands of Stone tells the story of Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez), a boxer who rose from poverty in Panama to become a world champion. Yes, youve seen this kind of movie plenty of times before, and the fact that this one is based on a true story doesnt necessarily add to the appeal. But this will: The fight scenes and training montages are edited in an engaging way, and the film is full of little moments and details that make it a truly lively and dynamic viewing experience. Duran is an up-and-coming boxer when he hooks up with esteemed trainer Ray Arcel (Robert De Niro) in 1971. Through Arcel, Duran learns both boxing technique and how to strategize. Combined with his natural ring sense, this makes him nearly unbeatable and world famous. Durans biggest rival is Sugar Ray Leonard, nicely played by hip-hop star Usher Raymond as a mild-mannered guy whos light on his feet and tough to beat in the ring. We also see Duran outside the ring, mostly chasing a schoolgirl named Felicidad (Ana de Armas) and engaging with Panamanian locals after he becomes famous. Written and directed by Jonathan Jakubowicz, the film is at its best when Arcel and Duran interact. Note the way Arcel combs Durans hair in between rounds of a fight because it intimidates the opponent to see Duran coming out looking fresh. Also note that the reason Duran hates being hungry while training is because he was often hungry as a kid and it brings back horrible memories. Also, Arcel doesnt allow Duran to mouth off to him. More than once he puts Duran in his place, but at the same time he fights for and defends Duran against all who try to take advantage of him. Their bond is articulated through their actions, not words of affection. Its quite nice, actually. There are some extraneous moments: All of Arcels personal life shouldve been left on the editing room floor, but doing so wouldve cut out three things: 1) John Turturro as a New York City gangster, 2) Ellen Barkin as Arcels wife and 3) Drena De Niro (Mr. De Niros adopted daughter) as Arcels estranged daughter. Mr. De Niro is really good here, yes, but you cant help but wish Mr. Jakubowicz had looked objectively at the film and realized whats obvious to us: that focusing on Duran alone wouldve made the movie better. The distractions are worsened by the fact that Durans story is so compelling, meaning we want him on screen more and dont want to be distracted by Arcels personal drama. Destitute, lacking education and abandoned by his father at age 14, Duran fought in street fights for money before going under the wing of a boxing trainer named Plomo (Pedro Perez). His journey to becoming a champion, complete with adversity, love and fame, is as compelling a rags-to-riches tale as youll find. Mr. Ramirez plays him with the appropriate stubborn conviction, and in the process gets us to like Duran and forgive him for his flaws. If you dont follow boxing you might not know the name Roberto Duran, and thats OK. After all, it doesnt mean you cannot (or will not) enjoy his story in Hands of Stone. On par with Creed in terms of overall quality, this film is a solid movie worthy of the admirable life and career Duran has led. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Roberto Durans nickname was Manos de Piedra, which is Spanish for Hands of Stone.

Has it been renewed, and if so, do you have any spoilers? Tina R., via emailA: The mesmerizing drama/suspense series has been renewed for 10 more episodes, with season two premiering in early 2017 (no exact date as yet). As you know, the series stars Rob Perlman, Dana Delany, Garret Dillahunt and Julian Morris, and centers on a morally corrupt judge (played by Ron) who suffers a breakdown and believes that God is compelling him onto a path of vigilante justice.I spoke recently with series creator and head writer Ben Watkins, who aside from letting me know that Linda Gray is joining the cast, also gave me the scoop on season two. When there are things we cant explain, we will try to find an answer for it. We say its science or religion or its crazy or its magic. In season two, Pernell continues to explore this question of whether hes truly crazy or has he actually touched onto something supernatural. We get a chance in season two to peel back some of the layers of what is going on, some of the sinister elements in the city of San Vincente, and how that is affecting Pernells journey. Q: I loved Hugh Laurie in Night Manager. What else will he be in? Donnie T., Reno, NevadaA: Hughs next project is the Hulu original drama series Chance, which premieres Oct. 19. In this six-episode series, Hugh plays a forensic neuropsychiatrist who reluctantly gets sucked into a violent and dangerous world of mistaken identity, police corruption and mental illness.Readers: If youre a fan of the Netflix documentary series Making a Murderer like I am, then youll want to know that a federal judge overturned the conviction of Brendan Dassey for the murder of Teresa Halbach. Judge William E. Duffin wrote in his ruling: The court finds that the confession Dassey gave to the police on March 1, 2006, was so clearly involuntary in a constitutional sense that the court of appeals decision to the contrary was an unreasonable application of clearly established federal law. Unless the state wants to retry him, Brendan will be released within 90 days of Aug. 12. There is no word yet on what this will mean for his stillincarcerated uncle, Steven.

KOVEL: ANTIQUESCandy containers with nursery rhymes bring sweet price for collectors BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELAn attractive box can help sell a product, especially if it can be reused in a new way. Since the 19th century, candy containers have been made to attract buyers. Figural glass bottles were first made in the shape of the Liberty Bell in 1876. Papier-mch animals with removable heads and hollow stomachs, and lithographed tin boxes, pails and even figural tins were used later. All of these are collected today and some sell for hundreds of dollars. Canco is the name found on a series of lithographed tin pails that held candy by Lovell & Covell, a candy company in Fulton, Mass. The pails are decorated with nursery-rhyme figures. The Queen of Hearts, Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood and Peter Cottontail are the easiest to find in the series. In excellent condition, they retail for over $100. The Canco mark was used from 1910 to 1921 by the American Can Company, a 1901 firm. Q: I have an old kerosene lamp, only used when we had power outages, and not used for a long time. The oil burner needs to be removed to fill with the kerosene. The kerosene seems to have gelled and the burner cant be easily unscrewed. The glass bowl seems to have a brown stain inside. Any recommendations for solvent or cleaner to safely dissolve the gel and clean the interior? A: Kerosene will leave a waxy residue if left too long in a lamp that isnt used frequently. You can use gasoline to dissolve the deposit, but first you have to be able to unscrew the burner. Try wiping the part where it connects to the font with a rag dipped in gasoline. Then fill the lamp with gasoline and leave it overnight. In the morning, swirl the gasoline around and empty it. Make sure the lamp is dry before refilling it with kerosene. You may be able to clean the bowl by filling it with very hot water. Q: Articles about mens latest styles say cufflinks are back. The shirtsleeves have buttonholes and there are a few cufflinks sold in the stores. How old are the oldest cufflinks? Any tips on buying some? I have an inexpensive pair shaped like tiny automobiles. They are marked F & S. A: Cufflinks were invented about 1700. The first ones were made like two buttons joined by a short link chain. A butt on went into the butt onhole on each side of the cuff. By the 1800s, men were wearing plain, dark clothes so only a small, plain cufflink was acceptable. But by the 1840s and the Industrial Revolution, inexpensive cufflinks were machine-made and used by the average man, not just the rich. Cufflink designs followed the styles from Victorian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Mid-Century modern periods. Your cufflinks were made by Fenwick and Sailors, a Hollywood company that started after World War II. They made many silver figural cufflinks, including some like small Coca-Cola bottles or TWA planes to be given as ads. They went out of business in the 1970s, as cufflinks slowly lost popularity until the early 2000s. Costume jewelry and curvy links are very inexpensive, often selling for about $10. Gold and silver links made by famous jewelers can cost over $1,000. Q: My Ivorex plaque inscribed is Poets corner, Westminster Abbey, Dickens Grove. Its 7 by 9 inches. What is it worth? A: Ivorex plaques were made by the Arthur B. Osborne Co. in Faversham, Kent, England. The company was in business from 1899 to 1965. The plaques were made of a material he called sterine wax. Plaster of Paris was poured into clay molds to make three-dimensional pictures, which were hand-painted and dipped in wax to finish them. W.H. Bossons Ltd. bought the company in 1971 and made plaques from 1980 to 1996, when that company closed. They are not popular with collectors in the U.S., but some sell in England. Prices, $10-$50. Q: I have my first Barbie, from about 1959. She has red hair in a ponytail and is wearing a black-and-white striped swimsuit. I got Ken with fuzzy hair, Midge, Allen, Skipper and Skooter as they were produced, and also have the pink sports car and other things. Is it worth the trouble to try to sell them? A: The first Barbie doll came out in 1959. The doll was designed by Ruth Handler, co-founder of Mattel Inc., and came with blond or brunette hair. The doll was named Barbie after her daughter. Ken was introduced in 1961 and was named after her son. Barbie No. 1 has upside-down V-shaped eyebrows and holes in the bottom of her feet, which fit into a special stand. Barbie No. 5 was the first Barbie with a red or auburn ponytail (a color Mattel calls Titian). It was introduced in 1961. Barbie dolls, her friends, clothes and accessories sell for prices ranging from $10 or less to several hundred dollars. Barbie No. 1 sold at auction last year for over $4,000. Tip: Handle gemstone jewelry carefully. Opals crack easily, and soaking them in water to prevent cracking my do more harm than good. Some stones, like pink beryl, will fade if left in bright sun for a long time. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Back then, one could receive a tour of Thomas Edisons winter home and laboratory that was guided by the old men who served as assistants to Edison in the Fort Myers laboratory when they were young boys in the teens and 0s. And back then, I met some of the most fascinating people at shops and through my mothers clubs and organizations. My mom was and still is active in the Fort Myers Doll Club. In the 1970s, many of the members were of my grandmothers generation and older. I remember one of the most delightful of those ladies Olive McCarty showing me this miniature chest or that fabulous frippery bought back in the s or s in the antiques department at Marshall Fields in Chicago. Oh, you cant imagine how wonderful the antiques were there. It all was curated, she would say with a flourish. I loved seeing Mrs. McCarty she was always very well turned out, and her antiques and dolls were among the finest in the area. But by the time I made it to Marshall Fields that antiques department on State Street was a thing of the past. Its a pity because I love to see something with history becoming a part of dcor. Thats what made me love Gumps department store during a recent visit to San Francisco. Id long heard of Gumps, that fabled center of decorative splendor, but only made it there recently. Forget Rice-A-Roni Gumps is the San Francisco treat, especially for lovers of art and dcor. Colorful glass sculptures from the United States and elsewhere sparkle in the light from the front windows. Cases to the left of the door are filled with jewelry. The space to the right is filled with art pottery and more art glass. A giant statue of Buddha greets you as you climb the stairs. Upstairs, there were furnishings, dishes and beautiful linens I bought flour-sack towels with whimsical designs to use as hostess gifts. And I loved hearing a saleswoman referring to a china pattern as Exportinspired, taking a cue from the European-motif pieces made in China during the 18th century. A room filled with antique crystal and silver transported me to another era. Tables were laden with cut-glass biscuit jars and salt cellars. Another table was loaded with caviar servers, and cases were groaning with silver serving pieces a grace note on any table, and inspired pieces to use today especially in our food-savvy culture. None of it seemed out of context with the beautiful contemporary pieces that filled the rest of the store. In fact, it all had a curated feel like Marshall Fields back in the days Mrs. McCarty shopped there. We cant all make the trek to Gumps, but we can draw inspiration from the notion that objects of good design have a way of coordinating regardless of era. Thats one sweet lesson Ill take from my trip to San Francisco. SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYGumps was founded in San Francisco in 1861 and has been known for decades as a purveyor of high-end accessories. Cut-glass biscuit jars are as at home now as they were a century ago. Picture them filled with shortbreads. Silver-plated egg coddlers would be perfect accessories for a brunch buffet.

THE DISH The Dish: Pan Seared Sea Scallops The Place: Shulas The Hilton Naples The Price: $24 The Details: I had never gone to Shulas for lunch (or dinner) and ordered something that didnt involve meat: the signature Angus Burger, the Black & Blue Salad (with tenderloin tips and gorgonzola) or a slab of juicy prime rib with accompaniments. As I considered the menu on my most recent visit, however, I spotted a server delivering something that just looked too yummy to pass up: three plump, golden, panseared sea scallops sitting atop a creamy concoction of roasted corn and bacon bits, sprinkled with some diced tomatoes. A side plate of perfectly grilled asparagus spears was part of the order, too. I ignored my carnivorous tendencies and was glad I did. The dish was rich and filling, yet not so much, after cleaning my plate, I couldnt go back to the office and have a productive afternoon. One More Thing: Theres still time to get to Shulas for the August Burger of the Month. For $15, you can fill up on an 8-ounce Angus Burger loaded with double-cut bacon, cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce and served with your choice of steak fries or sweet potato fries.

Then try his second concept: Bar Tulia, a gastropub right next door. Here you can dine on small plates, pizzas, house-made sausage and other items that appeal to the creative chef in a rustic yet hip atmosphere thats clearly gained a following. Even the drinks are creative, like the pigalle (a refreshing blend of St. Germain elderflower liqueur, prosecco, soda and lemon) and a Hurricane (featuring three kinds of rum, passion fruit, bitters, grenadine and lime). Graze your way through the menu as we did: a generous plate of fresh ceviche; grilled octopus on greens and fingerling potatoes; a perfectly rendered pizza with house-made mozzarella and tomato sauce with fresh basil; grilled house sausage atop stewed white beans; deviled eggs with smoked trout roe; and a full-sized entre of salmon with roasted carrots and beets. For dessert, try the Sicilian waffle with caramelized bananas and maple bourbon almond truffle. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed May 2015Fernandez the Bull-Midtown, 3375 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 653-9097Local lovers of Cuban food have twice as much to thank the Fernandez family for now that theres a second Fernandez the Bull to patronize. For 25-plus years, the first one has existed in various locations. Now a chic-looking sibling is operating on Pine Ridge Road with indoor and outdoor seating, a full bar and a terrific staff. Start with a wellchilled and minty guava mojito. Savor some beef empanadas (one dish of eight serves two or more) or crisp fried calamari. Then move on to an entre like the chicken with mojo and garlic sauce or shrimp and mussels in white wine and tomato sauce. Sides of moros (rice and black beans), fried yucca or fried plantains are all great choices. And dont skip dessert. We loved the guava mango mousse cheesecake. Full bar. Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed November 2015Ristorante Farfalla, 21301 Tamiami Trail, Estero; 495-9912Chef-owner Michael Fattah has maintained his commitment to top-shelf ingredients, freshly made pasta, lighter sauces and handmade desserts since opening Farfalla in 1998. No garlic knots or meatball subs here; calamari and penne alla vodka are the closest things to culinary clichs. Fattahs fresh pasta is a must-have, and it might be as dazzling as a special of squid ink and saffron fettuccine with littleneck clams, green mussels, shrimp and lobster. From the regular menu, you cant go wrong with one of the half-dozen veal dishes, the risottos or the handmade gnocchi. And dont pass on dessert (served with chilled forks); the cannoli and cheesecake both are filled with an ethereal blend of ricotta and triple-cream mascarpone. Beer and wine. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2016 7th Avenue Social, 849 Seventh Ave. S., Naples; 231-4553A lot of restaurants in Naples offer great food, but few do it with the fun and funky vibe that 7th Avenue Social has achieved. The spot formerly occupied by Flava is now owned by Colin Estrem. The menu features innovative cocktails, house-made pickles, conch sliders, smoked fish mac and cheese, fish or barbacoa tacos, pineapple upside down cake and a host of other goodies. Stop in for drinks and relax in the eclectic collection of chairs clustered near the entrance, or dine at a table where a couch (with pillows) provides two of the seats. I loved the pickles, a chile verde pork taco, the mac and cheese and the somewhat sloppy but satisfying Southern fried chicken wings. We shared a nightly special of yellowtail snapper encased in salt that was served tableside with white asparagus, crisp yucca fries and a side of Bernaise sauce. Sunday brunch and late-night menus available, too. Full bar. Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed May 2015 The Local, 5323 Airport-Pulling Road, Naples; 596-3276This restaurants name aptly describes its mission: to serve as much farmand sea-to-table food as can be procured locally. Run by chef/owner Jeff Mitchell, a Culinary Institute of America alum, the place has a menu thats creative, a setting thats unfussy and a staff thats friendly and accommodating. As you would expect, the menu changes frequently, depending on what products are available. If they are offered, I recommend starting with the Pine Island clams in red curry. The sauce is sweet and spicy, redolent of basil and studded with scallions. Its good enough to drink on its own. Pan-seared triggerfish was expertly cooked, enhanced by a mango and avocado salsa. Mustard-roasted allnatural Joyce Farms free-range chicken breast with mustard breadcrumbs, softboiled egg and pecorino sauce was an imaginative way to dress up poultry. From the side dish choices, we liked the blackened potatoes, the sweet potato cake and the roasted beets with shallots and sherry vinegar. Dont skip dessert; everything here is homemade. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2015

CLOSED ON MONDAYS DURING AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER CUISINESouthern hospitality and menu a winning combination for 1500 South No doubt Chef Art Smith has faced some professional challenges over the years. After all, he was Oprahs chef for 10 years. He also served Bob Graham and Jeb Bush Florida governors with archly opposing views if not tastes. Dealing with diverse and likely demanding personalities, a wide range of dietary proscriptions and other quirks that require skillful navigation no doubt helped him develop the skills needed to take on an establishment with a troubled past. Since opening in 2008, the waterfront restaurant at Naples Bay Resort has been Italian (Olio), Chinese (LOrient), upscale American (Meredays Fine Dining) and upscale Southern since March, when Mr. Smith opened 1500 South the name derived from the street address, which seems to be a trend these days. I have gamely reviewed each one and enjoyed them to varying extents. Perhaps because Mr. Smith has several other restaurants, 1500 South avoids some of the pitfalls of its predecessors, even though he isnt there most of the time, leaving the day-to-day operation to his chef de cuisine, Dagan Stocks. The crowd was light on the Saturday night we visited, but the open kitchen had a full complement of black-clad chefs conjuring up food that was as beautiful as it was delicious. We almost missed watching them conduct that fascinating culinary ballet when the hostess first sat us in the second dining room, which has a view of the water but not the kitchen. We were the only party in the dining room, so it was pretty lifeless. When we asked to be moved into the main dining room, the hostess and our very on-point server, Taylor, were quick to relocate us to a table right smack in front of the kitchen. Ah, yes: dinner and a show, my favorite. After that, everything flowed smoothly. A server attendant delivered a little wooden box in which were two fragrant garlic knots and two moist, rosemaryscented biscuits. There was no butter accompanying them, and none was needed. On this scorching evening, we ordered a bottle of Whispering Angel Rose, which arrived properly chilled along with an ice bucket. The hardest part of dining at 1500 South is narrowing down your choices. For an economical evening, consider the three-course prix fixe meal for $35. But everything on the menu looks great, and the specials sounded even better. Take the nightly soup special: a whiskey crab bisque ($13) that had a crab base, a smoky touch of whisky, bits of crab bobbing about and Meyer lemon foam that added a tart-sweet note. From the menu, we sampled the smoked salmon hoecake ($16), a thin cornmeal pancake. The salmon was buttery soft and lightly smoked, perched atop the tender cake topped with dollops of sweet pea mash, crme fraiche, pea tendrils and slices of red jalapenos. Ive had smoked salmon on blini, toast points and other starches, but the hoecake seemed the perfect vehicle, adding both flavor and texture without overwhelming the delicate fish. The exemplary appetizers had us eagerly anticipating the entrees and we were not disappointed. Cornmeal-crusted lane snapper ($27) consisted of a good-sized fillet ensconced in a thin, crisp layer of cornmeal then topped with a bounty of goodies including Vidalia onion and green onion escabeche with golden raisins, tangerines and frisee. This dish was a symphony of flavors and textures. Chef Arts Famous Fried Chicken ($27) might be a bit pricy for poultry, but it was terrific, with a crisp, well-seasoned crust and moist interior, including the breast. There were three large pieces of chicken, plus a small bowl of house hot sauce which started out sweet and finished with a pleasant heat and two more of those wonderful rosemary biscuits. I wound up taking a piece of chicken and the biscuits home. They were pretty darned good the next day. We shared an order of roasted seasonal veggies ($8), a mix of mushrooms, summer squash, baby corn and cauliflower in three shades topped with saba (similar to balsamic vinegar), extra virgin olive oil and a shower of shredded cheese. While the veggies tasted good, they arrived close to room temperature, the result no doubt of being ready before our entrees. Dessert was one of the nightly specials: strawberry-rhubarb crumble with vanilla ice cream ($12). It was made to order, so it took a few minutes to arrive but was worth the wait. Served blazing hot in a little iron skillet, the fruit was delicious and not overly sweet, with just enough crumb topping. The melting ice cream added a cool, creamy note. The dining room at 1500 South is spare but lovely. Gone are the strangely shaped wood sculptures, replaced by a wall of wine. Theres lots of white and wood. The tables themselves have nothing on them but silverware no flowers, no salt, no pepper. And thats just fine. Here the food is the star and it needs no adornment. The service staff was spot on, working as a well-oiled team to ensure that dishes arrived and were cleared in a timely manner, wine and water were poured before we asked and that everything was going well at our table. Im hoping that the fourth times the charm for this lovely space and that diners will make their way to 1500 South to get a taste of superb Southern cuisine and a big serving of hospitality along with it. 1500 South Restaurant>> Hours: 5-10 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Appetizers, $2-$18; entrees, $19-$38 >> Beverages: Full bar >> Seating: Conventional tables, banquettes, some outdoor seating >> Specialties of the house: Southern cuisine >> Volume: Low to moderate >> Parking: Free lot with valet parking >> Website: 1500southanples.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: Naples Bay Resort, 1500 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 774-1500 Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYSmoked salmon on a hoecake is a fabulous pairing.

Kalea 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-August, the construction on our first tower has reached the penthouse floor, stated Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing. 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 ceilings in living areas, 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 KaleaBay.com.

Ronto creating legacy in Southwest FloridaWith a variety of distinctly different communities in development, The Ronto Group is creating an impressive legacy in Southwest Florida. From TwinEagles classic country club ambiance, to Naples Squares walkable lifestyle, the Seaglass tower at Bonita Bay, and the Naples Orange Blossom community, Rontos is shaping how people live in one of the most desirable locales in the world. Ronto was named recipient of the Gold Award for Best Developer in the Naples Daily News 2016 Peoples Choice Awards. Since acquiring TwinEagles in September, 2010, Rontos development strategy has focused on enhancing the communitys amenities, enrolling outstanding Preferred Builders, and introducing product offerings that take advantage of TwinEagles natural setting. Under Rontos leadership, five neighborhoods have sold out, and three new neighborhoods have been introduced. TwinEagles product selection now ranges from carriage homes priced from the mid-$200s to estate residences priced into the millions. A tranquil natural setting, the luxury product offering, and world-class amenities, including two championship golf courses, continue to attract homebuyers. The community was recognized by Boardroom magazine as a Distinguished Emerald Club. A golf membership is included with every newly constructed home at TwinEagles. TwinEagles Talon Golf Course hosted the Chubb Classic PGA Champions Tour in February. The communitys Eagle Course was named Best New U.S. Private Course of the Year by Golf Magazine. A 47,000 square-foot Clubhouse offers an unparalleled dining experience created by the 2015 ACF Presidents Medallion recipient Chef Chas Tatigian. A new community swimming pool and fitness center includes a 2,500 square foot pool with a spa, a zero-entry feature, and a sunning deck overlooking a lake. An outdoor lounge, dining venue, and lighted Har-Tru tennis courts are adjacent to the pool. The 6,430 square foot fitness center includes locker rooms, areas for aerobics and yoga, and a fitness hall. At Naples Square, Ronto embraced the trend toward transforming downtown areas from serving as attractive destinations to places where people are fully engaged in every aspect of city life on a day-to-day basis. Rather than serving the more transient interests of those living in outlying areas, this new form of urbanism presents an opportunity to live with every aspect of life within walking distance. Naples Square is being developed at the corner of 5th Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples. The communitys walkable lifestyle is bringing a sense of cohesion to downtown by connecting 5th Avenue to Bayfront with access on 10th Street via 3rd Avenue South. The walk-able lifestyle and the availability of one and two-story, two and three bedroom plus den floor plans with open-concept living areas and open-air terraces continue to generate strong sales. After selling out 73 completed Phase I residences, construction of Naples Square Phase II continues to move forward on schedule for completion in first quarter, 2017, a timeframe that will allow Phase II residents to enjoy their new homes during the 2017 season. Just 16 Phase II residences featuring five floor plans remain available. The one and two story, two and three bedroom plus den plans range from over 1,200 to over 3,800 square feet under air and are priced from the $600s. Ronto is accepting Phase III reservations. Eight one and two story, two and three bedroom plus den Phase III floor plans range from 1,460 to 3,238 square feet under air and are base-priced from $695,000 to $1,550,000. With more than $103 million in sales already processed and construction underway, sales continue to expand at Rontos 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass at Bonita Bay high-rise tower within the Bonita Bay community that was named one of the ten healthiest clubs in America by Prevo Health Solutions. With the combination of the buildings captivating tower floor plans, Bonita Bay Club membership opportunities, and amenities that include a 60,000 square feet Lifestyle Center, five championship golf courses, numerous formal and informal dining venues, a marina, hiking and biking trails, a tennis complex, and a residents-only private beach park, Seaglass is redefining the luxury high-rise living experience. Choice tower residences remain available. Seaglass is expected to be completed by summer, 2018. The Seaglass tower will feature fullycompleted residences with designerselected premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim.
