A2 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARY The anteroom of hellAs an ambassador of ink let me welcome you, Francis, or you Chauncey and you too, Lizbeth, or you, Jason, and even you, Kathleen or Matt to the anteroom of hell. Some of us think of the place you now stand as the anteroom of the U.S. House of Representatives and the Florida Senate, which is not the worst place in the world. But its no place wed let our children hang around, thats for sure. By winning your primaries against other Republicans on Tuesday in U.S. District 19 and state Districts 27 and 28, you very likely sealed victories in your November races. You have now reached the sub-pinnacle of political power and leadership in Washington and in Tallahassee, since Democrats are about as common as Florida panthers in your districts. The November assault mounted by your Democratic party opponents will likely prove as effective as the charge of the light brigade. Congratulations on your victories. The pinnacle of political power (should you ever have the audacity to emerge from the sub-pinnacle, of course) is the White House. At the sound of the bell, you in particular, Francis, or you, Chauncey, will come swinging out of the District 19 corner weighing in at about 170 pounds and wearing not the purple trunks but a dark suit and tie, with your millions packed in your gloves like rolls of quarters. Coming out of the other corner will be a woman who gets to sleep in the White House for the next four years. Her political weight: about 200 tons. This is not the Bush administration, Chauncey. And Francis? She wont think youre the coolest guy on the planet because you run construction and oil companies, have a lot of money and go to church on Sunday. So good luck, pal, and Vaya con Dios. If you dont know what it means, you should look it up, since a lot of voters do. But you, Lizbeth, and you Matt or you, Kathleen youll have your challenges, too. The problem for all of you is water. And water can be turned into wine, as some of you know, so dont ignore this problem. (By the way, I prefer a very dry French Sauvignon Blanc in the whites, or if you must because you Republicans apparently like the color of blood, an Argentinian Malbec in the reds.) Weve really screwed up our water, Francis, no matter what the people in your oil companies, the ones that drill in the gulf, tell you when you convene for board meetings. And Kathleen, Matt, Lizbeth? You three. Please. Nobody is trying to take away our guns. Its a non-issue. Also, the flood of illegal immigrants has subsided as all the numbers suggest, but not the flood of polluted water. So could all of you please start focusing on what actually matters at this point in time? Mother Teresa of Calcutta said this, Francis and Id like all of you to heed it before you move into the White House someday: Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier. She was not talking about sugar lobbyists, by the way. The bottom line is this: Floridas economy and appeal are dying by the minute, by the yard and by the year because we arent stopping companies that run cows or grow sugar, or local governments that dont regulate septic systems, or cities that continue to dump bad water into good, from poisoning what we have in small, incremental ways, every day, week, month and year. We dont even let water flow in the right direction and quantities. And we could. Result? Dead fish. Dead tourism. Dead businesses. And if you let it happen, dead Florida lifestyle and dead economy. We dont care whos to blame: Big Ag and Big Sugar? Sure. Septic? Yep. Development and greedy local leadership? Democrats? Martians? Well, of course. But we just dont care. We want you to fix it and we agree that all of them and all of us should help pay for it. And you can. Your mothers would have wanted you to fix it. All of your grandparents would have been proud of you for fixing it. Think about them. Do you really care what lobbyists and officials for big companies that make money from bad solutions and bad science care about, in this issue? Would your mothers have cared? Look, water is precious, and if you think Im patronizing you, Im not. Water is precious. We have to protect it from people who will use it for gain. Commies, for example. Let me just remind you of the immortal words of Gen. Jack D. Ripper, who launched a nuclear war from the Alaskan SAC base he commanded in Stanley Kubricks blistering 1964 film, Dr. Strangelove, to prot ect our water: Mandrake, have you ever seen a commie drink a glass of water? Well, no, I cant say that I have, replies Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake of the Royal Air Force. Its because they pollute our waters, replies the general. I can no longer sit back and allow communist infiltration, communist indoctrination, communist subversion and the international communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids. Our precious bodily fluids, Francis. Hear that, Chauncey? Matt? Kathleen? Lizbeth? Jason? Its incredibly obvious, isnt it? The general concludes. A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual and certainly without any choice. Thats the way your hard-core commie works. You should know that, all of you aspiring leaders. So I welcome you you primary winners and I also implore you: Help us save our precious body fluids.

We do know it became a federal holiday in 1894. There was a long run-up by trade unions and the labor movement to promote the idea, and it caught on. By the time Congress acted, 30 states already had inaugurated their own versions of a celebration. They orchestrated thousands of events to shower American workers with public appreciation. These were all-day affairs. Vast picnic suppers in public parks followed on the heels of meandering parades. Brass bands entertained them with patriotic tunes. Flowery speeches droned on, late into the afternoon, generous superlatives heaping ever higher the orators praise of the l owly wage earner. They called to their audience: Look to your left; look to your right. Here beside you stand the cogs and the wheels that work together and lift the nation toward greatness and shared prosperity for all! For one fine day, ordinary men and women were raised upon the shoulders of the nation, their contributions toward building a thriving, American economy accorded dignity and respect. But alas, the holiday passed, American workers returned to their labors, faceless, swallowed up in the anonymity of their workplaces. The reality of workers lives was neither picnic nor pedestal in the decades leading up to the Great Depression. Their workplaces were predatory. They toiled in dangerous and unsafe conditions. They were mercilessly exploited by profiteers, their fight for justice in the workplace thwarted by industries immune from oversight and regulation. The labor movement finally brought greater balance into the equation. Workers pay and working conditions improved. But in 1894 and for many decades thereafter, the Labor Day holiday was just that: a single day of respite from a yearlong battle to survive in industries notorious for their habit of chewing up and discarding employees as if human garbage in mining, textiles, construction, agriculture, services and manufacturing. Being in the workforce then was no holiday; and, now, despite all the progress made, it is no holiday for todays workers either. Sure, the labor movement made a huge difference. How low can you go as a U.S, business model was challenged on multiple fronts. Workers are protected by labor standards envied by workers around the world, but those standards always are under threat. Will we roll back laws forbidding child labor? Probably not. Will wage slavery make a comeback? A definite maybe. In America, economic well-being depends mightily on increasing income and earnings over a lifetime of work. The upward trajectory in income allows for working people to take responsibility for educating children, owning a home, planning for retirement, accessing medical care. They even can take a vacation now and then. But this is where things have gone backward for todays working class families. Upward mobility is broken, and worse, caught in a downward spiral. All working families are at risk. Wage disparity and income inequality have eroded what was, decades ago, a livable wage. This is not somebody elses problem. It is a national problem affecting a vast swath of American families, including Floridians. Deciphering a recent Bureau of Labor Statistics study, Scott Powers of FloridaPolitics.com wrote, In Orlando, the three occupations with the most jobs are retail salespersons, food preparation workers (which includes fast food) and waiters and waitresses. All these occupations combined total more than 120,000 jobs, or more than 10 percent of all Orlandos jobs. The kicker? None pays a median annualized pay of more than $20,430. Is it enough to provide for a family? The answer? Not by half. A livable, hourly wage to support a family of two adults (one working) and two kids in the Orlando-KissimmeeSanford metro area is $18.04. To pay the estimated expenses for a family of this size in this metro area requires an annual income (before taxes) of $49, 842. Florida International University soon will publish its 2016 State of Florida Workers Report, a study assessing how Floridas workforce is fairing in the current economy. It is released annually around Labor Day. Its a good opportunity to temper gratuitous myth making with labor force facts. The 2015 study reported Floridas wage gap grew significantly following the 2008 housing collapse and that from 1980 to 2014, salaries paid to the states top 10 percent of wage earners grew 25 times faster than the pay earned by workers in the bottom 10 percent. These and other data suggest Florida is winning the wage race to the bottom. It is among those states whose employers pay the lowest salaries among all states nationwide, and the states largest metropolitan areas and its bigger cities offer the lowest paying urban jobs in America. The states reliance on the service sector may account for the prevalence of low-wage jobs, but these jobs also pay less in Florida than cities anywhere else in the country. This is what workers seeking a livable wage call losing ground. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian. Her professional career spans more than 25 years leading major philanthropic institutions in the South and Appalachia. She writes frequently on issues of politics, public policy, and philanthropy, earning national recognition for her leadership in the charitable sector. She resides with her family and pugs in Jupiter. Email her at email@example.com and read past blog posts on Tumblr at llilly15.Tumblr.com The Colin Powell defenseThe influence that Colin Powell has over Hillary Clinton is something to behold. His word is her command. When he tells her to break the law and endanger the nations secrets, she doesnt hesitate. She salutes smartly and does as she is told. Clinton has been desperate for the moral cover of Colin Powell for her email arrangement since the scandal first broke last year. Now weve learned that Clinton told the FBI that Powell advised her to use private email as secretary of state at a dinner in 2009. This escalates Clintons email defense from Hey, Colin Powell did it, too, all the way to Colin Powell made me do it. The Powell defense doesnt make much sense. While the former general used a private email as secretary of state, it was at a time when the department didnt have a robust email system of its own. And he obviously didnt set up his own private server. After Powell left State, the departments rules steadily got stricter about using official email for State Department business and preserving email records and Clinton blew through them all. On the advice, we are supposed to believe, of none other than Colin Powell, the Professor Moriarty of Clintons illicit email practices.The New York Times reported that at a dinner party hosted by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright that included other former secretaries of state, Albright asked Clintons predecessors what counsel they would give her. Allegedly, Powell didnt advise Clinton (channeling Winston Churchill) that diplomacy is the art of telling people to go to hell in such a way that they ask for directions, or even to avoid a land war in Asia. He told her to use private email. Powell says now thats not how he remembers it. If Clinton really wanted someones permission to use private email, she could have asked the State Department, which she never did. In a new book, the left-wing journalist Joe Conason writes that Clinton had already decided to use private email months before the Albright dinner. Of course she had, and for her own reasons. She wanted to hide as much of her business as possible from journalists and congressional committees seeking information on how she operated. Given the gross intermingling of State Department and Clinton Foundation business, this was only prudent. No wonder that Colin Powell finds Hillarys effort to enlist him as one of the justifications for her private server so galling. Powell told a reporter, Her people have been trying to pin it on me. Referring to a description of his email practices he sent to her (at her request), Powell said, The truth is, she was using (her private server) for a year before I sent her a memo telling her what I did. No one forced Hillary to use her private email for State Department business in a manner so flagrantly against the rules. And no one forced her and her husband to run their foundation as a vast pay-to-play scheme whose inner workings must be shielded from public view. Thats her responsibility and no one elses certainly not Colin Powells. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly leslieLILLYllilly@floridaweekly.com

A10 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Garth Francis ________________garthfrancis.comWhen driving into Arcadia from Peace River Campground I passed this place that had a yard FULL of bicycles and parts many times but I never saw the guy who lived there. On recent trips I was saddened to see all the bikes and parts were gone. Someone must have told the owner he had to clean it up or he moved or passed away. On my last trip I finally saw the bicycle man! He was working on a trike in his yard so I pulled over to photograph him. He was skeptical of me at first but after I explained the curiosity I had on so many passings he warmed up and gave me his blessing to make this picture. Long live the bicycle man.Quinn Sedam ________________quinn-sedam.pixels.comStrikeNaomi Raddatz ________________Louises Garden PHOTOGRAPHED

A12 WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.ECOF.comClearly, the right choice Clearlytherightchoice Clearlytherightchoice Since 1971 888 EYE APPT David C. Brown, MD, FACSFounder & Medical DirectorLifetime Eye Care for the Entire Family12 CONVENIENT LOCATIONS NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERDDistributed by Universal Press SyndicateVirtual fandomThe phenomenal Japanese singer Hatsune Miku (100 million YouTube hits) is coming off of a sold-out, 10-city North American concert tour with high-energy audiences (blocks-long lines to get in; raucous crowd participation; hefty souvenir sales), except that she isnt real. Hatsune Miku is a projected hologram on stage singing and dancing (but her band is human), and her May show in Dallas, according to a Dallas Observer review, typically ignited frenzied fans who know the shows every beat, outfit ... and glow stick color-change. Her voice, a synthesized vocaloid, is crafted in pitch, timbre and timing to sound human. (The latest PlayStation brings Hatsune Miku into the home by virtual reality.)The finer points of law Make up your mind, feds: On Aug. 11, the federal governments Drug Enforcement Agency famously refused to soften the regulation of marijuana, leaving it (with heroin) as a harsh Schedule I drug because, citing Food and Drug Administration findings, it has no medical use. However, as the Daily Caller pointed out, another federal agency the Department of Health and Human Services obtained a U.S. patent in 2003 for marijuana-derived cannabinoids, which HHS pointed out have several medical uses (as an antioxidant and for limiting neurological damage following strokes). Texas! In August, Houston defense lawyer Jerry Guerinot announced his retirement from death-penalty cases, leaving him with a perfect record (for that area of his practice): He lost every single time. Twenty-one clients received the death penalty, and 10 have been executed (so far). He made no excuses, pointing out that gang members, serial killers and sociopaths were entitled to representation, too, and that he has taken more than 500 noncapital cases to trial (with, presumably, more success).Leading economic indicatorsSuspicions confirmed: (1) A New York Times reporter, describing in June the rising prices of prescription pharmaceuticals, noted that a popular pain reliever (probably describing oxycodone) was available on the Paterson, N.J., black market for $25 a pill, while heroin was going for $2 a baggie. (2) The economic growth rate in Ireland for 2015 was revised upward in July. Growth of its gross domestic product was originally estimated at 7.8 percent, but subsequently adding the paper value of several inversions (U.S. companies moving to Ireland to reduce U.S. taxes) Ireland found that it was actually growing at 26.7 percent.Awesome(1) Investigators revealed in July that an off-duty Aurora, Colo., sheriffs deputy had justifiably fired his gun to resist a parking lot mugging and that, furthermore, one of the bullets from Deputy Jose Marquezs gun had gone straight into the barrel of one of the handguns pointed at him. The investigators called the shot one in a billion. (2) Matthew Lavin, 39, drew internet acclaim in July after he was gored through his left thigh while running with the bulls in the annual spectacle in Pamplona, Spain. Interviewed in his hospital bed by Madrids The Local, he called it the best time ever and said he looked forward to another run next year.IroniesGary Durham, 40, was shot to death during a heated road-rage incident in Plant City on Aug. 10. Durham had served 10 years in prison after an aggressive road-rage episode in 2001 in which he pursued another driver and knocked him to the ground, causing the man to hit his head, fatally, on the pavement. (Included in Durhams 2002 sentence was an order to take anger management classes.)Wait, what? The Borough Council of Pompton Lakes, N.J., was surprised to learn in June that, because of an existing local ordinance, dogs were not permitted in its brand-new Pompton Lakes dog park, created with great fanfare in an area of Hershfield Park. The council vowed to fix the problem. (2) In June, a police watchdog agency in Dublin, Ireland, asked officers (gardai) across the country to try to carry out house raids at reasonable hours so that they do not disturb the occupants. (In one complaint, gardai staged a 3:15 a.m. raid to search for evidence of stolen vehicle accessories.) A 9-year-old girl named Irina won a contest in Berezniki, Russia, in August for letting mosquitos bite her more often that they bit other contestants. It is the signature event of the annual Russian Mosquito Festival, and her 43 hits were enough to earn her the title of tastiest girl. The annual Great Texas Mosquito Festival in Clute, Texas (south of Houston), apparently has nothing comparable.Least-competent criminalsDidnt think ahead: (1) In July, Joshua Jacobs, 30, accidentally knocked down a traffic sign at 12:45 a.m. in Vero Beach, and, spotting a sheriffs deputy, sped away. The deputy gave chase especially, he said, given the fully-grown marijuana plant resting in the bed of the pickup. Jacobs was arrested. (2) Jeremy Watts, 30, and Jessica Heady, 24, were charged with aggravated burglary (a PlayStation and other electronics from a mans home) in Clarksville, Tenn., in August. The pair had offered the haul to a Cash America Pawnshop, but did not realize that the home they had burglarized was the pawnshop managers.

FREE Naples Botanical Garden mourns the death of designer Made WijayaNaples Botanical Garden mourns the loss of longtime friend, collaborator and designer of the Marcia and L. Bates Lea Asian Garden, Made Wijaya. His vignettes of Asia through borders and history are a favorite of Garden guests and horticulturalists alike. His dedication to aesthetics and detail was unparalleled. According to an Aug. 29 article in Australias Sydney World Herald, Mr. Wijaya died suddenly in Sydney, leaving the island he adopted in mourning. Only his closest friends had known he was sick. The tropical garden designer was world-renowned for his work on hotels and personal properties such as David Bowies on the island of Mustique. His style and flair, deeply infused with his love of Bali, Indonesia, became his signature and his mark on the world. Mr. Wijayas design of the Lea Asian Garden includes structures built entirely in Bali by Balinese workers and then shipped to Florida before being reassembled and rebuilt by those same workers. Made was one of the most complex and engaging people that I have met, says Brian Holley, executive director of the Garden. He was acerbic and outrageous, a brilliant designer and commander-in-chief of his gardening guerrillas, a raconteur, stubborn and sometimes difficult, a wit that Noel Coward would have been jealous of and one of humanitys kindest souls. The world has truly lost a light with his passing. Born Michael White, in Sydney, Australia, Mr. Wijaya arrived in Bali in 1973 in an oft-told story of jumping off a ship during a rainstorm. His accomplishments ranged from the design of wildly romantic landscapes to authoring several books and columns, as well as being a skilled photographer, tennis player and Javanese and Balinese-style dancer. His last visit to Naples Botanical Garden was in November 2015 for a meeting of the Gardens greatest minds to guide the next decade of growth. He also gave a standing-room-only lecture as part of the Lifelong Learning program titled Theatrical Nature My Life Creating Exotic Gardens in the Tropics. His joie de vivre, larger than life persona and endless generosity will have a lasting influence on the Garden. He will be missed. WIJAYA

NN Humane society receives $800,000 bequestHumane Society Naples has received an $800,000 bequest from the estate of Nancy Jill Weinig. A resident of Naples for many year, Ms. Weinig did not have children of her own and her extended family was small. Because she was especially fond of small dogs, she wanted to do something in a meaningful way to help provide for their humane care. Her attorney, Brad Rigor at Quarles & Brady LLP, says she chose to leave a portion of her estate to HSN because of its record for outstanding stewardship of its resources. We are profoundly grateful for compassionate donors like Jill Weinig who include Humane Society Naples in their estate planning, HSN Executive Director Michael Simonik says. Their thoughtfulness leaves a meaningful and lasting impact for Collier Countys orphaned animals, The mission of HSN is to shelter animals in times of need, locate life-long homes for them and to promote responsible pet ownership through education, legislation and sterilization. Founded in 1960, the no-kill, cage-free shelter has found forever homes for thousands of homeless pets. More than 500,000 people visit HSNs three locations each year.

So far this year CCSO has received 3,425 such complaints from the public. A total of 5,440 aggressive driving complaints were received in 2015. While the Collier County Sheriffs Office addresses the issue yearround, deputies are focusing on it in the form of a public safety initiative continuing through December. Electronic signs at key intersections warn drivers that deputies are on the lookout in marked patrol units, unmarked patrol units and marked police motorcycles all using radar and laser speed-measuring devices. The focus is on corridors identified by data as being high-volume crash areas, especially during the morning and after-work drive times on weekdays. The number of traffic deaths in Collier County is up 10 percent so far this year compared to the same period in 2015. There have been 19 fatal traffic crashes resulting in 22 traffic deaths during the first half of 2016, compared to 17 fatal crashes resulting in 20 traffic deaths over the same period in 2015. Since Jan. 1 this year there have been 42 aggressive driving-related crashes. There were a total of 60 aggressive driving-related crashed in 2015. If you find yourself on the road with an aggressive driver, try to get out of the way safely. Avoid eye contact, ignore any gestures and do not attempt to catch up to them. Here are some of the spots where deputies will be posted in the week ahead: Monday, Sept. 5 Vanderbilt Beach Road and U.S. 41 North: SpeedingPiper Boulevard: Aggressive drivingRattlesnake Hammock Road and Charlemagne Boulevard: Speeding Tuesday, Sept. 6 Shadowlawn Drive at Shadowlawn Elementary School: Speeding Santa Barbara and Devonshire boulevards: Aggressive driving White Boulevard and 39th Street S.W.: Aggressive driving Wednesday, Sept. 7Creekside Boulevard and GoodletteFrank Road: Aggressive drivingOsceola Trail at Osceola Elementary School: Speeding Immokalee Road and Winterview Drive: Aggressive driving Thursday, Sept. 8 Davis and Lakewood boulevards: Red-light running Naples Boulevard: Speeding Collier Boulevard and Mission Hills Drive: Speeding Friday, Sept. 9 Airport-Pulling Road and Rustic Oak Circle: Red-light running Pine Ridge Road at Pine Ridge Middle School: Aggressive driving Orange Blossom Drive and Yarberry Lane: Aggressive driving BEHIND THE WHEELRock star cars are rock stars at Pebble BeachThe Pebble Beach Concours dElegance is the Super Bowl for classic cars. Only the top contenders get the opportunity to part the Sunday morning fog for one day of competition with all of the (automotive) world watching.For the golfers reading this, it might seem like a dream come true being able to walk along the hallowed 18th fairway in front of The Lodge at Pebble Beach, Calif. But make no mistake, there is no room to practice swings or putt around. The courses signature hole is transformed into rows of automotive excellence that arrive at dawn and leave before dusk.Often participants have spent hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of dollars just to get their vehicles ready for this one-day event. Any car invited is already exceptionally rare, and the goal when they are presented here is to be just as they were the day each left the coachbuilder many decades ago. If this seems like a near-impossible task with overblown budgets, just know that there is something magical about the grass in Pebble Beach. Just parking a car on this lawn is an honor that follows the vehicle the rest of its life. It is the kind of legendary status that will increase the value of any entrant, but this is not a financial show. For the level of outlay it takes to be a Pebble-worthy car, it would be wiser to invest money in typewriters than try to make a profit on one of these classics. The exception to that might be the Best in Show winner. This year the top honor went to a 1936 Lancia Astura with a body built by Pinin Farina. For those who dont follow automobiles, just know that one of the previous owners was rocker Eric Clapton. He called this car, The most fun Ive had off stage and out of bed. But the reason to go to Pebble Beach is because some of the most interesting cars dont win awards, and their stories never get told beyond the lawn. For example, the Lancia was not the only rock n roll car on display. This was also the re-debut of Elvis Presleys 1957 BMW 507 Roadster. It was leased to the mega celebrity while he was in military service in Germany. The car was painted red soon after Presley took possession because he found that there were too many female fans leaving lipstick messages on the BMWs white body. The car was kept in private hands for nearly 50 years after Elvis was done with it. It has since been re-purchased by BMW and restored to its original white roadster condition. Or for those who like the pure car stories, one of Ferraris most celebrated stylists was Giotto Bizzarrini, who was known for his long, flowing designs. This years concours celebrated some of his best work, though one car looked a bit out of place. Among the long and low sports cars was a bright blue bubble car, and it was more significant than any of the quarter-million dollar classics in that class. This was Bizzarrinis first car that was completed while still in art school. He drove it to Ferraris gates. Enzo Ferrari took one look at it and hired Bizzarrini on the spot. Fans of American cars would have loved the special class celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Ford GT40 beating the rest of the world at Le Mans. This racecar has a storied history that culminated with an unprecedented win in 1966 that had these high-performance Fords sweep the podium at the 24-hour endurance race. The Pebble Beach Concours was able to reunite the three winners a half-century later, joined by 13 others that represent the many different generations and variations of this world-champion. Thats the true beauty of this car show. It has the power and clout to bring the upper class of vintage cars around the globe into one place. But for those who cant make it to California to see these amazing classics, dont worry. So much was invested in getting these cars to a certain caliber for Pebble Beach that they often make other appearances. Like rock stars kicking off for the reunion tour, Pebble Beach is only the beginning. Keep an eye out at some of the best car shows around the country, including Floridas Amelia Island this spring. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com Ferrari designer Giotto Bizzarrinis first car, completed while he was in art school.

As summer wanes, the danger of heat stroke doesnt BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comIts late summer in Southwest Florida, which means as temps continue to soar, so do incidents of heat exhaustion and stroke. Lee Memorial Hospital has seen a 48 percent increase in heat-related admissions this summer over the last year. Physicians Regional Healthcare System also reports higher than usual heat-related admissions. I had two patients in one day suffering from heat issues, one of whom was admitted with muscle breakdown and kidney failure, says Dr. James Roach, an emergency physician at Physicians Regionals Pine Ridge Road hospital. With extreme temperatures and high humidity, dehydration is common, he adds. It leads to muscle cramps, irritability and elevated core body temperature. In moderate to severe heat conditions, patients have dry-mouth, and for children, they do not produce tears. Dr. Jeffrey Panozzo, chair of emergency medicine at Naples Community Hospital, reported that heatrelated admissions didnt seem to be too out of the ordinary through the summer but ticked up a bit as August came to a close. I think hospitals in general underreport heat related injuries, Dr Panozzo says, adding physicians might code it as dehydration, syncope (fainting) or rhabdomyolisis (muscle breakdown). Hospital officials say local cases have ranged the full gamut of heat-related syndromes, from muscle cramps to heat exhaustion and stroke. While mild forms of the condition are easily treated with fluids and electrolytes, heat stroke can fatally damage a persons vital organs and muscle tissue. There is a high likelihood of death if a patient with heat stroke does not receive treatment, Dr. Lawrence, an emergency medicine physician at Lee Memorials Gulf Coast Medical Center in south Fort Myers, says. Even with treatment, he adds, there is an approximately 10 percent mortality with true heat stroke. The long-term consequences even with treatment can be renal failure, brain injury, liver damage and lung injuries. Some of these injuries are reversible, Dr. Lawrence says. Though certain populations, including children under the age of 4 and adults over 65, are more at risk, admissions to local emergency rooms seems to divide between levels of activity, he says. Younger, healthier patients tend to get heat stroke from exerting themselves, typically through hard labor or exercising, Dr. Chantelle Dufresne, an emergency medicine physican at Good Samaritan Medical Center in West Palm Beach, says. In elderly or debilitated patients, they are usually somewhere where it is hot outside or the a/c is broken and they are poorly nourished. Florida, like the rest of the country, is setting records for high temperatures this summer. Seven cities, including Tampa and Fort Lauderdale, experienced the hottest July on record last month. Heat exhaustion can often be treated without an emergency room visit, but a person who has an elevated body temperature or is disoriented should make the trip, Dr. Dufresne says. It is something to take seriously, and it is better to be safe. While its common knowledge that drinking water is an essential component of summer safety, most people dont know that maintaining their electrolyte levels is just as crucial to avoiding heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Sweating sheds salts including sodium and potassium, and low levels of either can cause seizures. Water is simply not enough if you are working or exercising outside for extended periods of time. Drinking too much plain water will hydrate you, but can lower your sodium level, Dr. Isaacs says. This is why sports drinks are better than plain old water if youre going to be very active in hot weather. They contain water and electrolytes. People who are admitted to the emergency room with a heat-related illness will be cooled down immediately with cold intravenous fluids and ice packs, or possibly an ice bath in severe cases. From there, doctors will address any internal damage overheating may have caused. To be safe as summer wanes but the heat and humidity dont, be on the lookout for dark-colored urine, dizziness, fainting, headache, muscle or abdominal cramps, gastrointestinal upset, profuse sweating and a rapid heartbeat. Once noted, a person should drink lots of fluid, remove tight clothing, take a cool shower and sit near fans or apply cool towels. If symptoms persist for longer than 15 measures, go to the hospital. Take frequent breaks out of severe heat. Be diligent with hydration drink plenty of water, Dr. Roach at Physicians Regional says. Finally, remember not to leave children in locked cars even for a short time. DUFRESNE ISAACS

NCH nurses embark again on path toward excellenceNursing excellence at NCH is a core value and a critical competence for our 98,000 emergency room visits and 40,000 inpatient and outpatient encounters. Under the guidance of Associate Chief Nursing Officer Ilia Echevarria, we recently submitted our 650-page document for reaccreditation of the Pathway to Excellence to validate our nursing processes. NCH first earned the Pathway accreditation three years ago and is one of only 10 hospitals in Florida to hold the designation; there are 139 Pathwaydesignated hospitals nationwide. The Pathway designation is also a milestone on the journey to Magnet Status. Magnet Status hospitals have objectively proven better outcomes, improved patient satisfaction, higher levels of professionalism, superior inter-professional teamwork, better retention and more engaged colleagues. All these factors are associated with nurses having higher levels of education. Florida has only 23 Magnet Status hospitals, with the closest in Sarasota. NCH is pursuing Magnet Status with a goal of document submission in 2017. Elevating professional standards and clinical competency provides the highest quality of patient care, which ultimately leads to the best outcomes. With that in mind, our clinical team has: Established targets for the advancement of nursing in a Nursing Strategic Plan. Promoted nursing autonomy through an established Professional Practice Model and Shared DecisionMaking structure. Ensured a voice at the table with front-line staff nurse representation at Nursing Executive Council and the NCH board of trustees. Implemented various technology tools to facilitate workflow and patient care. Promoted interdisciplinary partnerships through committees and performance improvement initiatives. Recognized nurses for their contributions through various award programs. The Pathway to Excellence recertification process requires input and feedback from nurses through a confidential and anonymous survey. We encourage all fulltime, part-time, per diem, float, agency, direct and nondirect nurses to share their thoughts and opinions. Also coming this fall: Nursing Peer Review, defined by the American Nurses Association as a process by which practicing RNs systemically assess, monitor and make judgments about the quality of nursing care provided by peers as measured against professional standards of practice. Peer review focuses on professional growth and is not linked to compensation. It is always completed by a peer in the same role holding the same license. It is neither voluntary not anonymous. Although many may be slightly uncomfortable at first, transparency is here to stay, and everyone improves as the patient benefits. Routine, timely feedback with the expectation of continuous improvement is very welcome in our learning culture. Physicians are also evolving toward more vigorous peer review, which ultimately will be good for all concerned. From Pathway to Magnet Status, NCH stands for Nurses Care Here, as we help everyone live longer, happier and healthier lives. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org Volunteers can help Parkinson Association of Southwest FloridaThe Parkinson Association of Southwest Florida Inc. is looking for volunteers in the following areas: public relations, finance, educational and social activities, the annual walk and general office duties.

PET TALESLonghaired pets require extra care to maintain their luxurious locks BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickFrom the Maltese to the Afghan hound, the Persian to the Maine coon, longhaired dogs and cats have a reputation for beauty and style. Their glamorous appearance comes at a price, though: That gorgeous coat can be a beast to care for. If youve fallen for a pet with long locks, weve gathered some tips to help you keep that coat stunning, healthy and tangle-free. First, the bad news: Theres no secret shortcut to caring for a long coat. It takes time and devotion. Youre ahead of the game, though, if you groom it on a regular basis. When a longhaired pets coat is neglected, the result is painful mats and tangles. Nobody wants that. Grooming needs depend on the type of coat a dog or cat has, as well as its length. Longhaired pets may have a single coat or a double coat (one with a top coat and an under layer). They may have feathering (longer hair on the ears, chest, legs and tail); thick, fine, silky hair; or ruffs, britches or pantaloons. Double-coated pets typically shed more than single-coated pets. Gather the right equipment. A pin brush moves smoothly through long hair and feathering. A bristle brush removes loose hair and dirt and polishes the coat. A wide-tooth comb removes downy undercoat. The curved wire pins of a slicker brush remove mats, loose hair and any flotsam and jetsam your dog picks up on a walk. Dogs with thick double coats may benefit from a session with an undercoat rake, especially during shedding season. If possible, ask a breeder or a professional groomer about the correct grooming tools and techniques to use. Keep the face clean. Dogs with beards, mustaches and eyebrows (known as furnishings) lose their distinguished appearance if food is stuck in their fur. Comb out the furnishings after every meal to keep them looking nice. Other trouble spots include the belly, the area where the legs meet the body (the underarms) and the urogenital area. Many pets dont like having these areas touched (maybe theyre ticklish). If you neglect them, though, these areas are most likely to develop mats and tangles. If you comb them before a problem starts, it will be a lot easier to accustom your pet to the attention. Watch for a poopy butt. Every longhaired pet gets it at one time or another. Get over the ick factor and check your pets rear regularly to make sure no dingleberries are dangling from his fur. You may want to trim the area short to help keep it clean. Or have a professional groomer do a sanitary trim for a neater appearance. Starting with a puppy? Practice for a few minutes every day. Even if your pup wont have his full coat for a year or two, he should learn now what to expect and how to stand nicely for it. You can gradually lengthen the amount of time you spend working on his coat. Give extra care to aging or overweight longhaired pets. Cats, in particular, may have difficulty grooming themselves and need some additional attention. Pay attention if your pet frequently bites or scratches at a specific area. On closer inspection, you may find a mat or tangle that needs attention. Be careful when trying to remove these. Severe mats may need professional attention. When his coat is at its full glory, you should expect to groom your longhaired pet at least every other day. For some pets, daily attention is a must. If you have trained your dog or cat to enjoy grooming, the experience should be a bonding time for both of you.

THE DIVA DIARIESAn open letter to Millennial women about addressing those of a certain ageDear Millennial Ladies: I understand that you are in your 20s and early 30s and seen through your eyes I am, apparently, an elderly, feeble woman who somehow tugs at your heartstrings. Maybe its because I remind you of your grandmother or the Sunday school teacher you had as a child. Maybe its because at my advanced age, youre pretty sure that Im close to death and you want to be gentle when you speak to me. Im not sure. But, for about five years now, ever since I was in my mid-40s, youve been addressing me as dear, sweetheart, sweetie and the like. Its not so much the unwelcome term of endearment that I take to task; its the cloying way in which you say it. Way back in olden times, when I was closer to your age, I would visit my Grandma in the nursing home. She was in her 80s, had suffered a stroke and was in the early stages of Alzheimers. Often when the nurses would come in her room with her orange juice or her medication or what not, they would speak to her in this syrupy tone: Well, hello, dear! Its time for your pill, sweetie. While I knew their intentions were good, I wanted to stand up, stomp my foot, and say, My grandmothers name is Mrs. Davis, thank you very much! I hated that they talked to Grandma as though she were a baby. And, please, dont tell me youre allowed to call me sweetheart because you grew up in the South and we all call each other that. Yes, Ive been known to call a girlfriend honey or sugar or darlin but these are women I love (or at least like a whole lot), and were comfortable with each other. And the truth is, we dont usually use dear or sweetheart because they sound like endearments for a much older woman. And, besides, even much older women dont like it. Listen, Millennial Girl at Macys or Starbucks or Bed, Bath & Beyond: Im OK with maam and Im even better with miss. I remain the same age as Sarah Jessica Parker, Brooke Shields and Diane Lane. I dont need any help crossing the street, and I dont enjoy it when you call me dear. When I was in my late teens and early 20s and older men who were strangers called me sweetie, I knew there was something wrong with it. I was young, but I wasnt their sweetie. It felt icky to have a stranger walk by and say something like, Smile, sweetie. And while its not the same kind of icky, it still raises the hairs on the back of my neck when a young woman Ive never met calls me sweetie. Weirdly, this subject can be almost as controversial as gun control and Donald Trumps raving tweets combined. When I started a conversation about it on my Facebook page not long ago, it generated HUNDREDS of comments. For the most part, women despised being called any term of endearment by a stranger, with dear and sweetie being at the top of the hate list. On the other hand, friends from the deep South (Im looking at you in particular, Mississippi and Alabama) said theyd not only be insulted if a stranger called them something other than darlin, they ALWAYS call other ladies dear and sweetheart unless, they said, they are addressing a woman 20 or more years older than them. Then its always maam because respect. So thats all Im asking, Millennial Ladies. I remember bristling when I was around 30 and a teenage cashier at the Dollar Store called me maam, but I got used to it. And just when I started accepting it, now Im sweetie. Sigh. Thanks for listening. Ill be clipping this column so that 40 years from now, I can tape it to the door of my room at the nursing room. Fondly, Maam Ciao for now, my lovelies!

Connie Moody, a senior travel consultant with Preferred Travel of Naples, went with a group of 24 people for a long weekend in January organized by the luxury and adventure travel company Abercrombie & Kent. She has also traveled to Cuba on the Fathom Cruise Lines Adonia, which is owned by Carnival. Both trips have price tags upwards of $4,000. My clients who are going and have gone with me are very experienced travelers, she said. Theyve had a pent-up desire to go to Havana and theyre willing to accept some of the regulations to have that experience before it gets too touristy. Were all selling Cuba in my office. On the other hand, U.S. travelers are forced to stick to a set schedule of activities. The cost of trips is relatively high, and there are other inconveniences in a country with crumbling infrastructure. Internet service is spotty, and U.S. credit and debit cards dont yet work in Cuba, only cash. Tour operators are required to keep records showing where they went and Americans accustomed to the freedom to go where they please or being ensconced day and night in lush resorts might be disappointed. Visitors at times forgo niceties like air conditioning or bottled water. The countrys lack of polish also has its charms, such as the 1950s cars the island is known for. Its not going to be like going to Cancn, said David Dowrick, owner of The Travel Gallery based in Jupiter. But I think people come back and they enjoy it as long as you go with the right frame of mind, youre not going to be able to just go off and lay on the beach and have a drink. Thats not what its about, not now at least, because tourism hasnt been approved. He also pointed out in an email, These restrictions do not apply to Canadians or Europeans. About 1 million Canadians visited Cuba last year, representing about 40 percent of all visitors. Among the 12 categories of travel allowed for U.S. citizens are general activities for cultural and educational purposes usually referred to as people-to-people travel. According to the U.S. Embassy in Havana that means maintaining a fulltime schedule of educational exchange activities that will result in meaningful interaction between the traveler and individuals in Cuba. Lynnette Lydic, a Fort Myers-based travel agent with Concierge Cruises, studied up on Cuba to sell trips on Fathoms Adonia after diplomacy thawed, but so far few clients have been interested. I really thought that it was going to pick up but theres still so many restrictions on it, she said. A lot of people think its a tourist thing and you can go and have a drink on the beach, and you cant, you have to stay with your group. The good thing about the travel, though, is the group is taking you to places that you want to see anyway. Pamela White, a Port Charlotte-based agent with Time 2 Travel Agency, said clients who have inquired about a trip to Cuba decided not to go. Most of what I have seen personally is people are still waiting for those restrictions to let up. I have not had anyone who wants to go yet. They want to do their own thing, be able to hang out on the beach.Group toursTravel Gallery owner Mr. Dowrick recommended going on a visit through an established tour operator instead of trying to plan your own people-to-people trip. A tour operator will take care of all the government paperwork for you, and solo travelers have reported spending a lot of time trying to find transportation, bottled water and facilities up to the standards we enjoy here in the states, he wrote in an email. Tour operators have done the homework for you. They select the best hotels, restaurants and modes of transportation so travelers can enjoy the cultural exchange. Another option that he calls Cuba-lite is to take Fathoms Adonia cruise ship on a seven-day tour. Preferred Travel consultant Ms. Moody has experienced Cuba both on a group visit last January organized by a luxury travel company, and on the cruise. The group tour left Southwest Florida on a Wednesday night and flew out of Miami on Thursday morning for a long weekend on the island, returning on Sunday afternoon. The accommodations, the food, the experience the group and I had in January, everybody said it far exceeded expectations, Ms. Moody said. Among the authorized events on their schedule, they went to a farmers market, met artists, musicians and a professor of sociology from the University of Havana. They enjoyed meals at family-run restaurants and stayed at the historic art-deco Hotel Nacional de Cuba. The cruise ship, which can hold 704 passengers, sailed from Miami and visited Havana, Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba. Its nice to have your ship be your floating hotel to come home to, she said.Family visitThose who go to Cuba to visit family have the chance to see a country that other U.S. citizens cant. Kristina Gear visited the island where her parents were born for the first time last December, meeting cousins, nieces and nephews. On Christmas Eve they roasted a pig, drank Havana Club rum and, of course, played dominoes. We kind of wanted to go before things changed too much because I had never been and I wanted to see how it really was before the Americans got in, said Ms. Gear, who is herself an American, born in Naples. She works for Preferred Travel as assistant to the president. Ms. Gear visited family both in Cotorro, outside Havana, and then in a town called Camajuan. The road trip to Camajuan was one example of why Cubas infrastructure isnt yet ready for American tourism. I think the infrastructure will be the biggest obstacle, because its very rough in a lot of areas, she said, including power outages, and lack of access to basics such as clothes, toiletries and drinking water. And if people go to a country, theyre going to want to wander throughout and driving was awful. The potholes are like sinkholes and you cant go very fast because you dont know when the next ones going to come. She believes that potential American tourism and other investment in Cuba, while having some drawbacks, will raise the quality of life for her family and others there. Honestly, I think it would be really good for the people because they deserve to have what the rest of the world has, she said. That appears to be happening little by little. For instance, major airlines were approved by the Transportation Department to start flights to Havana late this summer and in the fall from 10 U.S. cities, including Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Tampa. Approved airlines include Alaska, American, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, Southwest, Spirit and United. Today we take another important step toward delivering on President Obamas promise to re-engage Cuba, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said in a press release in July. Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) is not among the airports with major carriers offering flights to Cuba at least initially. We applied and we wrote a letter and we didnt get it, but theyre the bigger markets so we really werent surprised by it, said Carol Obermeier, director of air service development at RSW. Were going to be watching very closely how those scheduled carriers perform. She added, Thats a lot of capacity going into Havana (Jos Mart International Airport) and its a very small airport. CUBAFrom page 1 The 12 categories of travel to Cuba authorized by the U.S. government Family visits; of cial business of the U.S. government, foreign governments, and certain intergovernmental organizations; journalistic activity; professional research and professional meetings; educational activities; religious activities; public performances, clinics, workshops, athletic and other competitions, and exhibitions; support for the Cuban people; humanitarian projects; activities of private foundations or research or educational institutes; exportation, importation or transmission of information or informational materials; and certain authorized export transactions. Visits for educational activities and support for the Cuban people include general trips called people-to-people travel. What does that allow? Travelers utilizing this general license must ensure they maintain a full-time schedule of educational exchange activities intended to enhance contact with the Cuban people, support civil society in Cuba, or promote the Cuban peoples independence from Cuban authorities, and that will result in meaningful interaction between the traveler and individuals in Cuba In addition, persons relying upon this authorization must retain records related to the authorized travel transactions, including records demonstrating a full-time schedule of authorized activities.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2016 BUSINESS B5 MONEY & INVESTINGDollar General strategy is risky, so stock buy not advisedAs a small-business owner, I know the desire to take on and beat your larger competitors. It is that drive that creates innovation and is one of the key principals of capitalism. However, there is a time when a business should let a sleeping giant lie. And unfortunately for the shareholders of Dollar General, the company is now paying the price for attempting to take on the behemoth of the retail world, Walmart. Dollar General was founded in 1939 in Kentucky with the concept that no item in the store would cost more than $1. The company now owns over 12,000 stores across 43 states. And the company has performed well. Since its IPO in 2009 (the company was taken private in 2007), its stock price rose from around $20 a share to over $95 last week. And while now many items in its stores cost more than $1, the company still focuses on low-cost items for non-affluent consumers. But during Dollar Generals growth strategy over the last decade, it was forced to modify its strategy of operating stores in rural areas with very little competition. In order to expand, it had to move into suburban and metro areas where it would compete head on with grocery stores as well as Walmart. And it competed well as Walmart was facing its own internal challenges and grocery stores were focused on Walmart entry into the grocery business. But a couple of years ago, Walmart identified the Dollar General threat and moved to counter its competition. It renovated its stores, improved its supply chain and increased employee training. Most importantly, it used its huge cash hoards and dominance in the market to lower prices in key areas like grocery in locations that border Dollar General stores. We are now seeing the results of Dollar Generals strategy of taking on Walmart and Walmarts response. Walmart recently posted its largest same-store sales growth in over four years. Dollar Generals sales growth missed its targets by a wide margin. As a result, its stock plummeted almost 18 percent. Regrettably for Dollar General, the future does not look brighter. Walmart has announced that it will continue to invest in its stores and people as well as roll out lower pricing in key locations. In addition, grocery chain Aldi has expanded, which will add further competition to a crowded market. Of course, Dollar General is not standing still after its earnings and sales miss. But its reaction is to copy Walmart in lowering prices by 10 percent in certain categories. Its hope is to lure customers in the door with low prices in specific items and then get them to spend more on higher margin items. I believe that Dollar Generals strategy to regain its sales momentum is very risky. First, it does not have the cash reserves or free cash flow to take on Walmart in a long-term price war. Second, its customers are some of the lowest wage earners in the country. Many of these individuals still have not recovered from the recent recession and recently have seen food stamp benefits curtailed by the government. This is not the demographic that has large discretionary funds to buy high margin items. For these reasons, even though the stock has pulled back from its recent high, I would be hesitant to buy DG stock. Until it can come up with a clear path to growth, I believe its earnings and revenue will continue to be under pressure as it battles the giants in the retail and grocery sectors. ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com Awards & Recognition Timothy J.

The organization with my current name was born in 1844 as a building company in England. Today, based in London, Im the worlds biggest education company, employing more than 35,000 people in more than 70 countries. I used to own The Financial Times and related publications, but sold that unit to a Japanese company last year. I rake in close to $6 billion annually. My products and services serve 75 million learners, and Im aiming for 200 million in 10 years. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Should You Reverse Your Mortgage?If you need more income in retirement, consider a reverse mortgage. When you get a reverse mortgage, you collect a lump sum or regular payments based on the equity you have in your home. You dont have to pay back the loan until you die or stop living in your home. Income from a reverse mortgage is generally tax-free, too. What are the downsides? Well, not everyone will qualify for one; you may not get as much income as youd hoped for; and youll face closing costs. The points and fees youll face can be fairly high, and reverse mortgage interest rates can be higher than those for regular mortgages.Having a reverse mortgage can mean your heirs dont get to inherit your home, unless they can cough up enough to repay the loan. Also, getting a reverse mortgage might affect your eligibility for certain benefits such as Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The income you can expect from a reverse mortgage is determined by your homes value, your age and prevailing interest rates. Those 62 years old or older with little or no debt stand to benefit the most. A reverse mortgage can also establish a line of credit that seniors may draw on whenever the need arises. It may cost more than a home equity loan, but it wont require monthly payments. Reverse mortgages are generally not the best way to finance a retirement, but they can make sense for those without better options. Look into alternatives such as home equity loans. Or consider selling your home, moving to a less expensive dwelling, and investing and living off the difference. Reverse mortgage programs vary widely in what they offer, so its critical to shop around. Learn more at usa. gov/mortgages and consumerfinance. gov. Or read Understanding Reverse Mortgages: Increase Your Cash Flow and Minimize Your Stress by John Barlow (CreateSpace, $13). Dont sign up for a reverse mortgage without getting advice from people who dont sell reverse mortgages. Lights, Camera, Oops!Having received the worst stock tip ever in the form of sage advice from a day trader, I sank $2,000 into a U.S.-based Indian filmmaking company. You may be laughing already. Needless to say, the curry in my cabinet is now worth more than all the stock. I learned to be less gullible when it comes to snake oils and divining rods. M.Y., AtlantaThe Fool Responds: Your story is chock-full of lessons. For starters, filmmaking isnt necessarily a bad business just ask Disney. But not all filmmaking companies are alike. You should want any company you invest in to have a proven track record of revenue and profits and ideally for both of those to be growing.Taking advice from a day trader is not usually advisable, as they practice shortterm speculation instead of long-term investing, and though they may occasionally hit a home run, they typically get washed out. Youre right to now be skeptical of snake oils and divining rods which usually pop up in the stock market in the form of penny stocks, priced at a few dollars or pennies per share. Theyre frequently hyped, with promises of imminent gold, or oil discoveries, or major medical breakthroughs. This sends their shares up, only to crash again, wiping out many naive investors. For best results when investing, seek established companies whose businesses you understand well. A Marketplace Without WallsE-commerce is one of the most promising industries around. Accounting for a modest 7.5 percent of all retail transactions in the United States, it has a lot of room for growth. Within the e-commerce world, eBay (Nasdaq: EBAY) has lagged industry leader Amazon.com in revenue growth over the past several years, but its stock has recently been reasonably priced and is worth consideration. EBay sports fat net profit margins topping 20 percent in part because of its compelling business model: It operates a massive marketplace without walls or inventory or sales clerks. Better still, its implementing multiple initiatives to accelerate growth, and its most recent financial report suggests that these moves are generating the desired results. Sales growth is accelerating and profit margins are increasing. EBay has been improving its product inventory and giving more visibility to unique items on the platform. In addition, sellers are required to provide more and better product descriptions to improve the shopping experience. Its adding more name brands to its platform and is introducing new nooks, such as eBay Wine. Meanwhile, management is educating sellers on inventory gaps and strategies to generate better rankings in search results. If eBay can deliver on accelerating growth, then its stock should offer plenty of upside potential for long-term investors. (The Motley Fool has recommended and owns shares of eBay and Amazon.com.) I trace my roots back to 1837, when an Illinois blacksmith made a polished-steel plow. Today, Im an agriculture, construction, turf and forestry equipment giant. I make everything from sugarcane harvesters to riding lawn mowers to log harvesters to articulated dump trucks to golf course equipment. In the past Ive even built bicycles and homes and during World War II, I made military tractors, ammunition, aircraft parts, and cargo and mobile laundry units, among other things. While losing money in the Great Depression, I carried indebted farmers, boosting loyalty. My market value recently topped $25 billion. Who am I? (Answer: Deere & Co.) Underpriced IssuesQWhat does it mean if an IPO is underpriced? K.V., Binghamton, New YorkALets first review how an initial public offering (IPO), when a company first sells its stock on the open market, works. The company will generally hire an investment bank (such as Goldman Sachs or Morgan Stanley), which may then bring in other underwriters. The upcoming IPO is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission and a prospectus is issued, offering financial statements and information about the companys health and performance to the public and potential investors. The investment banks then woo big investors, generating interest in the company. As the IPO date approaches, the company and the banks come to an agreement on how to price the shares. For example, imagine that they have decided to sell 10 percent of the company to the public in 100 million shares reflecting a total share count of 1 billion shares. If they agree that the company is worth $10 billion, then each share would be priced at $10, and their 100-millionshare offering would bring in $1 billion for the company. If the shares skyrocket on the IPO day, that suggests they were underpriced and could have generated more money for the company. ***QWhich mutual funds pay shareholders the most? D.P., Adrian, MichiganALook for income funds, which invest chiefly in dividendpaying stocks or in interest-paying bonds. Other kinds of funds (such as growth or value ones) aim to reward shareholders mainly via stock price appreciation though they may also feature some dividend or interest income.

Filmmaker Bruce Brown follows surfers Michael Hynson and Robert August on an around-the-world surfing adventure. With Mr. Browns wry, sardonic narration and a twangy, guitar-driven instrumental soundtrack by The Sandals playing over the silent footage, the surfers leave their California home to visit Hawaii, Australia, South Africa and other secluded surfing spots in a search for The Perfect Wave. When the movie was first shown, it encouraged many surfers to go abroad, giving birth to the surf-and-travel culture, with prizes for finding uncrowded surf, meeting new people and riding the perfect wave. It also introduced the sport to a broader audience beyond Hawaii, the Polynesian Islands, California and Australia. Mr. Brown released a sequel, The Endless Summer II, in 1994. In 2000 his son, Dana Brown, released The Endless Summer Revisited, which consisted of unused footage from the first two films, as well as original cast interviews. In 2002, The Endless Summer was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being culturally, historically or aesthetically significant. Admission to the NIFF Film Society screening at Silverspot is free for society member, $16 for others. The 2016 Naples International Film Festival takes place Oct. 27-30.

Buckley, DO, FAAD, FAOCD, FACMSBoard Certied Dermatology, Fellowship Trained Mohs SurgeonDOWNTOWN NAPLES MARCO ISLAND philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com FLORIDA WRITERSRural Florida town harbors a nutcase killer and a nosy sleuth Mud Bog Murder by Lesley A. Diehl. Camel Press. 268 pages. Trade paperback, $15.95. Cozy mysteries have established themselves as a thriving mystery subgenre. While theres plenty of suspense and plenty of investigatory action, the cozies have a warm feeling. Often humorous and usually uplifting, they are on the other side of noir. While the queen of this category is Nancy J. Cohen (who even wrote a howto book about this subgenre), Lesley A. Diehl is a contender. Mud Bog Murder, the fourth Eve Appel Mystery, is set in a place called Sabal Bay, Fla., which I take to be a fictional stand-in for Ms. Diehls rural residence of Okeechobee. Here, on the ranching property owned by Jenny McCleary, disaster strikes during the mud bog race, a favorite local entertainment that can bring the person whose property is rented a nice piece of change. In fact, the disaster strikes Jenny, whose severed head is found flying through the air, spun up by the churning wheels of a participating monster truck. Pieces of her alligator-torn body are found near the Miccosukee tribes airboat business. Jenny had recently begun shopping at the quality second-hand clothing business owned and run by Eve Appel and her pregnant friend, Madeleine. Theirs is a mobile business about to be transformed into a fixed address store in town. Eve and Madeleine might have become friends with Jenny, who was about the only property owner around who didnt resent seeing the shop owners among the environmental protesters at the mud bog race. Why should these two be telling the ranchers how to use their land and trying to take away the pleasures of monster truck fans? Resentment toward the protesters threatens the business. Eve and Madeleine cant even get local trades people to do repairs on the building, which the previous owner left in terrible condition. When Eves friend Grandfather Egret (his grandson Sammy is cautiously attracted to Eve) is arrested for the murder, Eve just knows this is a mistake and has to prove it. Alex, her PI boyfriend, resents her snooping ways, as does Frida, a local police officer. Yet Eve pushes on, and Alex becomes enlisted in the investigation. All want to help bring justice for Jennys teenage daughter, Shelley, who in her disorienting grief has begun leaning on Darrel, the exploitative, abusive lowlife she calls her boyfriend. Who would have had it in for Jenny? Where do the clues point? Most readers will focus on the sleuthing team that grows to include not only Eve and Alex, but also Madeleines husband David, Eves former husband Jerry, Sammy Egret and Eves dear Nappi Napolitani, the local mafia kingpin (you better believe it). One after another, suspects are identified and rejected until only one is left. Among these are the rival properties owners seeking the benefit of contracting for the mud bog race. Another center of interest is Eves fear of romantic commitment, which grew out of her wretched marriage to Jerry. Alex is pushing to tie the knot, but Eve keeps pushing him away. His anger is palpable, as is her uncertainty. Sl owly, an attraction builds between Eve and Sammy Egret. An awkward situation for both of them at first, it gathers strength and naturalness through the novel. These plot interests combine with other features to provide a multi-faceted reading experience. Richly drawn characters like Eve and her grandmother can be at once endearing and irritating. Darrel is a perfectly despicable bad boy. Grandfather Egret has wisdom, patience and courage. Ms. Diehl examines several relationships in rewarding depth. She also provides an entertaining overview of the cultural climate in rural Floridas small, inland communities this one within shopping distance of West Palm Beach, where Eve and Madeleine get those upper-class cast-offs to market back in Sable Bay. Read it and smile. 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.Catching up with the writerLesley A. Diehl retired from her life as a professor of psychology and reclaimed her country roots by moving to a small cottage in the Butternut River Valley in upstate New York. In the winter she migrates to Old Florida, with its cowboys, scrub palmetto and open fields of grazing cattle a place where spurs still jingle in the post office.Florida Weeklys Phil Jason had the pleasure of posing her a few questions. Find out more about her at lesleyadiehl. com. Q: Which parts of the writing process do you enjoy the most, and which the least? A: I enjoy creating the first draft where the ideas are fresh and come together in interesting ways. Since I like to insert humor into my cozy mysteries, this time in the writing is when I sometimes am so pleased with a clever scene or piece of dialogue that I laugh out loud. If I find it funny, I want to believe others will also. The least fun is with edits after Ive DIEHL

A: I revise what I have written the day before and use this as a way of keeping the story flowing and connected. I then may go back and revise a chapter. When I have a first revision, I will go through it and revise several times again. I also read the work out loud and print out it out to make edits on a written page. After that, my editor gets it and we revise again. Q: You say your Eve character has been improved over the four books. How has that happened? A: Eves signature characteristic was that she was an in-your-face kind of gal, a lively character, and one who usually took chances and went her own way. She was loyal to her friends and brilliant at sleuthing. I have begun to morph her into someone who retains her sass but who is more considerate of others and not so quick to take chances now that her life circumstances have changed. How has her life changed? Thats part of the next several books, kind of a surprise I dont want to give away. Let me just say that Eve is more multidimensional now. Im spending just as much time now with Eve as a character as I spend with the plot, and I love the twists and turns of plotting. Q: What generated the mud bog races idea? A: Mud bog racing came to the area of rural Florida where I live in the winter and, with it, some clashes between economic issues and environmental ones. This clash is at the center of the plot in Mud Bog Murder, and I pit Eve and Madeleines concern with the environment against those who want to use the races to make money. The county can use an influx of money, but the way its usually done in Florida is by ignoring wildlife and land use issues and putting development first. That conflict has come to rural Florida as it did to the coastal areas.

Lewis, Sept. 8-17 (preview Wednesday, Sept. 7) at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers. Miguel Cintron plays a surprising character who lays bare Americans complicated, contradictory feelings about guns. His unique perspective upends common criticisms from the opposite poles of the American political spectrum. In five true stories that range from humorous and touching to harrowing and heartbreaking, The Gun Show makes audiences on either side of the aisle realize there are no easy answers in the gun debate. We have a problem with guns in America, Ms. Lewis writes. The problem is, we really, really like them. In vignettes about things ranging from life-changing episodes of gun violence to fond reminiscences about growing up in a rural community where learning to shoot was a familiar rite of passage, her play offers an unflinching look down the barrel at the America we live in today. Tickets to the preview performance are $15; all others are $24 ($11 for students). Thursday nights are buy one get one half off. For tickets, call 936-3239 or go to theatreconspiracy.org. A Gathering of Creatives on Sept. 9 Theatre Conspiracy takes a shot at provocative new one-man show
C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYmately 150 works submitted in the competition. There were a number of plays written by men (in the semi-finalist group), but our favorites happened to all be written by women. Womens plays are historically underrepresented on stage, so having a festival with all female playwrights is highly unusual. From the initial entries, Ms. Zielenbach, Mr. Binder and a group of readers chose 30 favorites. Ms. Zielenbach and Mr. Binder narrowed those down to 10 before Kristen Coury, Gulfshore Playhouse founder and producing artistic director, selected the five finalists. In addition, compelling stories with unique circumstances and interesting characters, the finalists had to be something Gulfshore Playhouse could cast. An entry might have been an amazing play, but if it had too many people in it, or nine women, for example, it wouldnt work, Mr. Binder explains. (Of the 10 actors taking part this year, eight have roles in more than one of the plays.) We all had our favorites, the plays that really knocked our socks off, resonated with us personally, Mr. Binder says, but there was general agreement among them as he, Ms. Coury and Ms. Zielenbach considered the semi-finalists. The question (became), how do we fit those plays into the festival?, he says. In addition to putting the playwrights together with professional actors and directors, the New Works Festival gives audiences the opportunity to be part of the playwriting process. After each presentation they are encouraged to give feedback and ask questions. Its a real opportunity for the playwright to use the audience, to use everyone around them, as a sounding board to their work, Mr. Binder says. They take to heart audience reactions, he adds. They hear their work, wrestle with it, change it. Some might do a complete rewrite, while others will tweak here and there, changing only a few things. These plays have never been on a stage or seen by an audience before, Ms. Zielenbach says, adding any of the five could be the next great American play. Ms. Coury was out of the country on vacation, but Mr. Binder and Ms. Zielenbach agreed to talk about each of this years new works: Paradise by Laura Maria Censabella This two-person play features a Yemeni-American student and her science teacher at an inner-city high school in the Bronx. He has a religious past, but has become disillusioned, Ms. Zielenbach says about the teacher. They form this unlikely pairing and embark on a scientific study. She recently learned that the play has earned a grant and been commissioned as a partnership between the Ensemble Studio Theatre and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Science & Technology Project. We were drawn to this one, Ms. Zielenbach says. We dont see many Yemeni people represented in theater. Its so beautiful, so engaging all three of us were completely in love with this play. Its an incredible exploration of the relationship between these two people, Mr. Binder says. Its a meeting of these two very distinct and completely different worlds. One is full of hope and one has given up hope. How it is reconciled in the play is very beautiful and fascinating and complex. Ms. Censabella, a part-time assistant professor at The School of Drama at The New School in New York City, recently won the $10,000 ADAA William Saroyan Human Rights/Social Justice Drama Award for her play Carla Cooks the War. She has won three grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts for her plays and screenplays and also won two daytime television Emmy Awards. The New Works Festival reading of Paradise takes place at 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 8. Marla and Her Prayers by Kim Merrill Mr. Binder wont give too much away about this one. As with all wonderful plays, theres a real twist to this that makes it fascinating, he says. The title character is confronting the fact that the person who shot and killed her son is about to be released from prison. And he is the son of a friend. Marlas son was gay; he and his killer were both teenagers. Now she must reconcile the fact of the killers release and whether or not shes going to confront him. As theater-makers, were drawn to scripts that jump off the page at you, says Ms. Zielenbach. This one is really theatrical We just loved how it stood out to us. Its darkly funny, a real exploration of grief and the way we deal with complicated things. Mr. Binder will direct the reading of Marla and Her Prayers, which will feature three actresses familiar to Gulfshore Playhouse patrons: Jessica Wortham (An Enemy of the People), Maureen Silliman (Vanya and Sonya and Masha and Spike and previous New Works Festival readings) and Amy Van Nostrand (The Glass Menagerie). Other plays by Ms. Merrill have been produced by NJ Repertory, Contemporary American Theatre Festival, Theater for the New City, Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey and Manhattan Theatre Source, among others. The reading of Marla and Her Prayers will be at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9. The Last Allegiance by Annalisa Dias This play is modern retelling of the Medieval Persian myth, The Shahnahmeh. Its cool to bring that to life in an accessible way, says Ms. Zielenbach. This is our big cast epic, she says jokingly, adding the play requires six actors, but contains many more characters. It tells the story of a wicked old king who grows jealous of one of his sons and sends him off on a task that he believes will kill him. Its about honor and pride and pragmatism, Mr. Binder says. What is the right thing to do on a grand scale? When you honor your father but do the wrong thing, what is the right thing? What does wisdom teach you? What happens when you follow a code or an ideal without taking into account the consequences whether following that ideal is the ultimate good? Ms. Dias is a performer, director and playwright whose works have been staged in Washington, D.C., New York, London and Glasgow. She is a producing playwright with The Welders, a Washington, D.C., playwrights collective, and co-founder of the DC Coalition for Theatre & Social Justice. The reading of The Last Allegiance will be at 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10. Miss Keller Has No Second Book by Deb Hiett This play might remind audience members of the late novelist Harper Lee. Its about fictional author Agnes Keller. Now quite elderly, she published one well-known book and then became a recluse. Shes being faced with a significant and life-changing event which has just occurred, Ms. Zielenbach says, and suddenly she is being visited by a number of people who she really doesnt want to see. Its about her grappling with change and her family, and whether she is obligated, because of this book that was so well-loved, to create more work for the world. It explores her own relationship with her family and her life as an artist as (she relates) to the outside world, when one of her protections is gone and whether she is going to be taken advantage of, as an artist, as a person. This reading will feature Ms. Silliman as the aging author and Ms. Nostrand as the second lead. Ms. Hiett moved to Los Angeles after years of living in New York City, where she was an actress, dancer, musician and writer. Miss Keller Has No Second Book was a semi-finalist in the 2016 Eugene ONeill National Playwrights Conference, the 2016 PlayPenn New Play Workshop and the 2016 Princess Grace Playwriting Fellowship, as well as a finalist in the 2016 Route 66 New Play Workshop. The Gulfshore Playhouse New Works Festival reading of Miss Keller Has No Second Book will be at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11. Lunch at Audreys by Jarlath Barsanti-Jacobs Ms. Zielenbach describes Lunch at Audreys as almost a one-woman show, for although it has a cast of three people, two of them are coming in and out and playing a variety of people. The Audrey in the title is actress Audrey Hepburn. Its 1960. Shes 30 years old, at her Swiss chalet preparing to have Sophia Loren and Carlo Ponti over for lunch. But a big snowstorm rages outside, and she begins reflecting on a variety of things: her marriage and pregnancy, and whether she should take the role offered her in Breakfast at Tiffanys. The playwright has done copious research on Ms. Hepburn, Ms. Zielenbach says. Its interesting, stepping into the mindset of A udr e y Hepburn and into her private life, imagining how she would deal with all these complicated things that are happening, she says. Its also a glimpse into her career thus far, her experience with other actors, directors, agents, Mr. Binder adds. Its a glimpse of her in that Hollywood period when her star was rising. Its grand old Hollywood and the colorful characters within it. Lunch at Audreys is Ms. BarsantiJacobs first play. She worked in New York City as a copywriter for TV commercials, specializing in jingle lyrics. She recently wrote the original book and lyrics for Fire Island, a musical about the shenanigans of group shares in a beach house, and the book and lyrics for Miracolo, a musical love story set in Italy about the rivalry between conventional and alternative medicine. The reading of Lunch at Audreys takes place at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYA sideways look at the Summer OlympicsYoure more likely to find me at the theater than attending a sports event. (Come to think of it, I dont think Ive ever attended a professional game anywhere.) But Im not adverse to watching the NFL or a good boxing match on TV from time to time. When the Olympics come around, however, like everyone else Im avidly watching on my TV or laptop screen. But I suspect I might watch the Games differently than your typical sports fan. For example, I look forward to the opening ceremonies because I want to hear that countrys music and see how the city represents itself and its history. Putting on a show in an arena is a challenge, because theres so much space to use. I also like checking out the fashion, not only the outfits they wear during the opening ceremonies but during the competition itself the warm-up jackets and swimsuit robes, and what the athletes wear on the medal stand. Its also interesting to look at the various countries flags. (I wonder if were the only ones who kept changing the design of their flag, adding stars.) Heres a collection of various thoughts/ reactions to the 2016 Summer Olympics.Favorite things from the Olympics My favorite quote about the games was on novelist Dorothea Benton Franks Facebook page: I just want to know if watching the Olympics qualifies as exercise. Ryan Seacrest is not a journalist. He does not know how to ask questions or how to conduct an interview. Hes a lightweight, a featherweight. If they could, I suspect NBC would have turned the summer games into a competition a la Americas Got Talent or The Voice. Its coverage did seem very insubstantial. That being said, I loved that the network had the presence of mind to invite Saturday Night Live comic/Ghostbusters actor Leslie Jones to the games to give comic relief. She is one big, bold, crazy fan of the Olympics. The woman makes me laugh every time. On the other hand, if I had to pick one person to guide me all the way through the Olympics, it would have to be Bob Costas. He does his research and knows his subject. I wish hed had more screen time this Olympics. I dread the day he retires. Whenever I watch the Olympics, I cant help but wonder how other countries are covering the events. Surely they too, are cheering for their own athletes and highlighting them. I wonder if theres any coverage thats truly neutral. When did winning a silver or bronze Olympic medal become losing? I was stunned when U.S. bantamweight boxer Shakur Stevenson became so upset after winning a silver medal that he lost his composure and complained about losing. I can understand being disappointed at not winning the gold, but come on. U.S. middleweight boxer Claressa Shields became the first American boxer to win two gold medals in two consecutive Olympics. Known as T-Rex, shes ferocious in the ring. In the bouts I managed to catch, she didnt knock anyone out, but in at least one instance her opponent was given a standing eight count. Sundry things I liked at the Olympics: The way Simone Biles medals sounded like wind chimes when she was wearing them all. The wink Laurie Hernandez gave the judges before starting her floor routine. The noncompetitive show five gymnasts put on for the crowd. They flipped so fast they looked like the replicant Daryl Hannah in Blade Runner. The way the water polo men looked like they were wearing baby bonnets. It was especially funny on those who had beards or were very hairy. All they needed were pacifiers to complete the look. Katie Ledecky, Katie Ledecky, Katie Ledecky. I loved the commercials Nike made for the Olympics. Unfortunately, I only saw maybe one or two of them during the whole time I was watching the games. I was surprised to discover so many more when I went on YouTube. If you havent seen them, you should check out the Nike Unlimited series of commercials. Each one highlights a different athlete: Gabby Douglas, Allyson Ferber, Simone Biles, Serena Williams, Alex Morgan, Ashton Eaton, Mo Farah and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce. Theyre well made and incredibly inspirational in a non-sappy way. Here are some quotes from the ads: Success is losing over and over again without losing enthusiasm. Ashton Eaton The mental part is the hard part. You can always give it more than what you think you have. Mo Farah So theres obviously days I dont feel like training. But theres no day that goes by that I feel like losing. Serena WilliamsStrange things at the Olympics French fencer Enzo Lefort decided to bring his cell phone with him to his match. It fell out of his pocket when he was in the middle of fencing. Seriously? How addictive do you have to be to your cell phone that you have to bring it to an Olympic game youre competing in? The water in the diving pool turned green. The Mongolian wrestling coaches, upset about a controversial penalty point given at the end of a match (that made their athlete lose), protested in front of the judges by taking off their clothes, stripping down to their underwear, shouting all the time. It was like a hostile striptease. A Japanese pole-vaulter would have cleared the bar, but knocked it down with his genitalia. Some of the boxing scores for the men were suspicious. I watched one match where a boxer was absolutely pummeled throughout and was stunned when the referee raised his hand in victory at the end. Great Britain thought itd be a great idea to give all its athletes red suitcases until the athletes all tried to pick up their baggage upon returning home and realized they couldnt tell the luggage apart. Would anyone watch beach volleyball if the outfits werent so skimpy? Everyone has their favorite sport that makes them scratch their head and wonder why its included in the Olympics. I was eating lunch at the Gathering Place the other week and the Olympics were playing on multiple screens. No one could figure out why skipping around on a giant mat with a hula-hoop is a sport. (Of course, I feel that way about the trampoline and sorry also golf.) But nothing is as weird as curling, that activity that combines bowling with a stone with housekeeping (sweeping the ice.) But thats a winter sport, and we have to wait for the Winter Olympics for that. Finally, television is great for watching the games, but it falls far short of print media in explaining whats happening. I devoured the sports pages during the Olympics, reading especially The New York Times and the Boston Globe. I read articles that explained what wed watched at the opening ceremonies (something the NBC commentators didnt do very well). I read an article about the table tennis athletes complaining about minute variations in the dimensions of the ping-pong balls. Wrote New York Times reporter Andrew Keh: They do not bounce, the players said. Their flight paths are unpredictable. And they frequently break Table tennis balls are capricious little things. Infinitesimal variations in size and imperceptible deviations in construction can have considerable ramifications in how they spin, fly and bounce. Informative, entertaining and excellent writing. I also read an article about how the shuttlecocks used in badminton are made. (They have 16 goose feathers, Portuguese cork and can go as fast as 300 mph.) Great writing and interesting stories about the games.When it comes to depth, newspapers rule. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2016 C13 CONTRACT BRIDGEA famous handBY STEVE BECKERThere are inspired plays one might never have an opportunity to make in a lifetime of bridge. Most such plays would not be difficult to execute if someone rang a bell at the critical moment to warn a player that his chance to rise and shine had arrived. Unfortunately, these moments occur so rarely and unexpectedly that for ordinary mortals the opportunity for brilliance goes unnoticed and quietly passes by. But here is a case where the player in the saddle rose to the occasion. The deal occurred in a team-of-four championship, and the hero was Billy Eisenberg, well-known Los Angeles star. He got to three notrump, and West led the seven of spades. Eisenberg won with dummys ace and made the obvious lead of a low club from dummy. When East produced the king, Eisenberg followed with the five! Declarer was well-rewarded for his unusual play, since East could now do no better than cash his K-Q of spades and ace of diamonds to hold Eisenberg to three notrump. Now lets suppose declarer had won East's king of clubs with the ace, which almost anyone else in his shoes would have done. In that case, the contract would have failed. When South continued with another club to the queen, East would signal with the nine of diamonds, asking partner to return a diamond if he got the lead. Declarer could not now prevail, whatever he did next. If he continued with a club, West would win and shift to a diamond, and East would cash two diamonds and two spades to put the contract down one. And if declarer abandoned clubs, he would not be able to come to nine tricks.

Solid performances and editing allow this part biopic/part boxing movie to be a thoroughly engaging drama. Rated R.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 (Mr. 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.

See Store For Details.) LATEST FILMSSouthside With YouIs it worth $10? NoThe tagline of Southside with You is inherently appealing, as it promises a candid look at Barack and Michelle Obamas first date in the summer of 1989. What it actually delivers, however, is a love letter to the current First Couple, one that depicts them with copious positivity and uses negative topics, such as Baracks negligent father, as sources of inspiration to make a difference. Im not a betting man, but Im willing to bet writer/director Richard Tanne is a Democrat. Bias aside, the reality is almost the entire movie is fraudulent. Although Mr. Tanne researched the story by reading accounts given by the Obamas about their first date, this only means the locations are accurate, not the conversation. The fictionalized discussion would be more tolerable if the dialog were interesting and about more than personal biographies and life philosophies, but it is not. Combined with low-budget production values and standard editing, the whole thing plays like a made-for-TV movie. They spend an entire afternoon and evening together, though Michelle (Tika Sumpter) insists it isnt a date. Shes Baracks (Parker Sawyers) advisor at their law firm, and with her establishing professional credibility and him on loan from Harvard Law School for the summer, shes worried about how itll look. But hes a smooth-talker and undeterred, and as they venture from an art museum to a walk in a park to the movies for Spike Lees Do The Right Thing, she gradually warms to him. Their conversation is uncannily personal (her fathers MS) and revelatory (hes dated white women), much more than one would expect on a typical first date. She says she wants to help women and empower them. He says he feels a bigger calling in civil rights or, maybe, politics. Mr. Tanne isnt overtly foreshadowing the lives they are about to lead, but its obviously where the viewers mind is going to go and therefore seems intentional on the directors part. And then there are moments that dont belong in the movie at all. A good 15 minutes (of the 84-minute run time) is set at a proposal for a community center meeting in which Barack doesnt even sit next to Michelle. Shes told by nosey women what a great guy he is as he shakes hands with everyone. The leader of the event is given harsh feedback from locals who dont feel like the community center will ever be approved. Good thing Barack is there to appease the masses. The thing is, this has little to do with their date and clearly wouldnt be in the movie if it didnt feature the current president of the United States as a younger man swaying an uneasy crowd to his side. It was lazy for Mr. Tanne to have a scene that feels this overwritten and tedious in a movie thats supposed to be about a budding love story, not a budding political career. Worse and more unforgiveable is that (per the press notes) this meeting wasnt held on their first date, and therefore isnt authentic to the story. Its impossible to watch Southside with You without thinking about the Obamas today, which means every line of dialog adds insight and perspective into the couple currently running the United States of America. The problem is we have no idea if any of the dialog is genuine, and with a movie like this, that matters. Curiosity about the First Couple might be enough to inspire you to see this one, but knowing it lacks the substance it needs makes that a zero sum game. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Southside with You was shot in 15 days at or near many of the actual locations of the rst date.

Often, interest in the characters dies about 25 years after the last new episode of their shows are shown. Some have continued to be popular because of TV reruns and their rebirth in new movies, comics or even plays. Underdog was one of the characters created in 1959 for television cartoons selling General Mills cereal. In 1969, the show lost its sponsor, but 62 shows continued in syndication. They can be seen on TV, and other syndicated shows with Underdog as the hero were edited, rewritten and re-bundled to remain on TV until the late 1990s. Many years on the air have helped Underdog collectibles remain popular and expensive. A 1974 childs metal Underdog lunchbox and thermos sold at a Hakes.com auction in fall 2015 for $2,296. Q: I have an old blue leather rocking chair with horsehair stuffing and fringe around the bottom. I was told it was my grandmothers and that she brought it over from Germany. The only marking on it is a round button on the back that I believe reads Karpen Furniture. Can you provide any information and maybe a value? A: Your chair was made by S. Karpen & Bros. of Chicago, Ill. Solomon Karpen, along with his nine brothers, started the company in 1880, and by 1900, it was the largest manufacturer of upholstered furniture in the world. By 1927, Karpen had also built factories in Long Island City, N.Y., Michigan City, Ind., and Los Angeles, employing 1,800 workers. Karpen was in business until 1952. Y our chair is in very distressed condition and it would be very expensive to recover. Any value it has would be sentimental. Q: My sister was given a black Couroc serving tray with 37 presidential coins in it. The coin representing President Gerald R. Ford is in the center. Its 18 by 12 inches. What can you tell me about it? A: The Couroc Co. was founded in Monterey, Calif., by Guthrie Courvoisier in 1948. The name is derived from the first four letters of his last name, Cour, with oc added to make it sound like rock. Most Couroc items were made of black resin and embedded with coins, wood, metal or objects from nature. Courvoisier died in 1963 and the company closed in the 1990s. The value of your tray is about $30. Q: More than 20 years ago, I purchased three electric light bulbs that are not just light bulbs. They have animals inside and light up when turned on. Two have dogs and one has a donkey. I cant find any numbers or markings on them and I am wondering if you can tell me when they were made and what they might be worth. A: Light bulbs with glowing figural objects inside were first made in the 1930s. They were invented by Philip Kayatt, founder and president of Aerolux Light Corp. of New York City, who patented the first novelty filament glow light in 1935. From 1938 until the early 1970s, Aerolux made gas-discharge light bulbs with small figures in the bulbs. Called cheer lights, the low-wattage bulbs could be used in standard electric lamps. When the lamps were turned on, the figures glowed orange, pink, green or purple. Dogs were made from about 1938, and donkeys were made between 1940 and 1950. Other companies made similar bulbs. The value of glow bulbs can go from $15 to $65. Q: I found an old post office box door in a box of things that were in my uncles barn. It looks like its bronze. The door has an eagle holding a bunch of arrows above a glass window. There is a combination lock dial above the eagle. Is this collectible? A: There are collectors interested in old post office box doors. They have been made of bronze, gold-painted aluminum and other metals. Doors with an eagle holding arrows that were first used in about 1906 are fairly common. Some old doors have been made into a box-shaped bank. Most doors sell for under $25. Tip: Do not wrap or store scrapbooks in furniture made with pressboard. The pressboard emits gases over the years. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Hilton Naples CELEBRITY EXTRANew King Kong to premiere in March BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: Is it true that they are making a new version of King Kong? If so, do you know how or if this will be different from other iterations? Dave G., via emailA: Kong: Skull Island will premiere March 10 on the big screen. This latest version of the actionadventure mo vie stars Tom Hiddleston (of Thor and The Avengers fame), Brie Larson (who won the Academy Award for Best Actress for Room), Samuel L. Jackson and Tom Wilkinson, and takes place in the 1970s, focusing on the origins of Kong. Hiddlestons character, Capt. James Conrad, is the leader of an expedition venturing deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific Ocean, where you can bet they are going to run smack into everyones favorite giant gorilla. Q: I havent seen Catherine Zeta-Jones in anything recently. I know she took time off while her husband, Michael Douglas, was recovering from cancer, but did she full on retire? Linda F., Baton Rouge, La.A: The gorgeous and talented Oscar winner recently signed on to star as Olivia de Havilland in FXs eight-part miniseries Feud, which centers on the bitter rivalry between Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? stars Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) and Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange). The miniseries will premiere sometime next year, and co-stars Stanley Tucci as studio chief Jack Warner, Judy Davis as gossip columnist Hedda Hopper and Alfred Molina as director/producer Robert Aldrich. With a powerhouse cast like this, I cant wait to see the series. Q: I remember hearing talk of a Lost Boys movie remake. Any word on that? Larry T., via emailA: Rob Thomas creator of Veronica Mars and iZombie is bringing the vampire cult classic to television over at the CW network. According to Deadline, the new series is being envisioned for a sevenseason run, spanning 70 years, each season chronicling a decade. With each season, the humans, the setting, the antagonist and the story all change only the vampires, our Lost Boys, who are like the Peter Pan characters who never grow up, remain the same. There is no word yet on whether the vampires will be all-new characters or a reimaging of the movie-version ones, but seeing how they all died in the end, theyd have to get pretty creative if they are planning to reintroduce them.

In fact, it might even have occupied the very space where KC American Bistro now serves innovative American regional cuisine thats as sophisticated as the setting. My watermelon salad was unlike any other, with generous chunks of juicy melon arranged in a block atop a bed of whipped goat cheese (genius!) and topped with micro-sprouts, an orange wedge and Meyer lemon dressing swirled with a lovely balsamic. I was intrigued by the descriptions of three other salads on the menu and will make my return(s) in short order to try: (1) Honeycrisp Apple and Arugula Salad with dried cranberries, candied walnuts and a Mission fig vinaigrette, (2) Kale Caesar Salad with shaved Manchego, toasted pine nuts and KCs Caesar dressing and (3) Heirloom Tomato and Warm Spinach Salad with Maytag blue cheese and applewood smoked bacon vinaigrette.

C26 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY VINONew Years resolutions that we can make anytime we wantSorry I couldnt wait. The Chinese wont celebrate until the end of next January, but our Jewish friends are gearing up for their celebration in just a few weeks. So if you cant make resolutions now, then when? I recently discovered an old column Id saved from The Wall Street Journal from back in 2009, where then-wine writers Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher made a list of 20 wine things to try in the new year. I said to myself, Why wait? After all, we can have wine fun whenever we darn well please. And, many of the items on their list are well worth doing at any time of year. For example, open a sparkling wine at home, just because you can. So many people save Champagne and other sparkling wines for a special occasion, but you can make any dinner special by popping the cork on a bottle of fizzy. There are dozens of reasonably priced sparkling wines on the shelves, many are Champagnes and others are made by the Champagne method. My favorite, mentioned in this space before, is Gruet, which comes from New Mexico, of all places. Their deliciously dry Brut is about $18, and worth every nickel. Try a wine from a different country. Of course, we tend to stick to wine types and producers weve sampled and liked, but what about expanding your horizons a little? The red table wines from Portugal have become sensational values. The Portuguese have done a terrific job using the grapes traditionally vinified as Port (Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, etc.) to make wines like the Quinta das Carvalhas Touriga Nacional Douro 2013, with plum, cocoa, spice and currant flavors all in the bottle for around $20. Shop at a wine store. Although Ive written about buying wine in so-called big box stores, theres are many advantages to patronizing smaller shops and being helped by a merchant whos caring, knowledgeable, and really understands wine. If you try a new wine and cant find it anywhere, an independent store can special order it for you. They hold tastings and other events where you can sample different wines and expand your horizons. They can put you on preferred customer lists and give you access to wines that may not be generally available. Building a relationship with a local wine retailer in your area is always a good idea. Splurge, for once. People who can afford to drink a $60-$100 bottle of wine with dinner every night dont live at our house. But once in a while not on a birthday or anniversary go ahead and spend the money. Restaurant wine lists are often arranged by price, so start at the bottom where the reserve wines are, and just do it even if its once a year. Speaking of big wines, here are some suggestions in several price ranges. Justin Isosceles 2012 ($60) This iconic wine from Paso Robles is a classic Bordeaux blend. Dark ruby garnet in the glass, aromas of plum, smoke, and bright fruit. The flavors are baking spice, cassis, vanilla, and black cherry. Needs time. WW 92-93. Damilano Lecinquevigne Barolo 2012 ($50) It means five vines in Italian, and gives up Old World aromas of tobacco, leather and roses. The earthy flavors persist through a long finish. WW 93. Avant Red Blend 2013 ($17) A relatively new label from Kendall-Jackson, its a very pleasing blend of six or seven red grapes. Blackberry and cherry on the nose, and the six months of oak aging adds a nice cedar note to the predominant cherry and raspberry flavors. WW 90.Ask the Wine WhispererQ. If a wine label says Cabernet Sauvignon, is the wine in the bottle pure Cabernet, or are other grapes blended in? Dominick B., Bonita SpringsA Depending on the laws of the particular state or region, the bottle must contain between 75 percent and 85 percent of the named varietal. So if the label says Cabernet Sauvignon, there can be up to 25 percent of other grapes blended in, and they dont have to be disclosed. Most times, blending improves a wine, adding color, structure or aroma. Places like France, Italy and Spain dont list the name of the grape at all just the name of the region its from. For example, in the Southern Rhone, a red wine might consist of a blend of 10 to 13 different grapes, and the label will not let you know.

CLOSED ON MONDAYS DURING AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER CUISINE Palladio Trattoria chef true to her Italian rootsIf any doubt remains that Southwest Florida has an overabundance of Italian restaurants, consider this: Palladio Trattoria, the latest Bonita Springs entry in the category, moved into a space formerly occupied by Fabios Trattoria. Before Fabio took over, it was Anthonys Trattoria. Thats a lotta trattoria for one address. Well, now its Emmas trattoria. Chef-owner Emanuela Emma Calcara opened Palladio in May, dedicating it to the 16th century Venetian architect influenced by classical Roman temple architecture. Chef Calcaras family roots lie in Vicenza, a northern Italian city so rich in Palladian villas that it has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the City of Palladio. The restaurants design doesnt mimic that grand scale, but if you look closely at the plaza its in youll spot a couple of decorative columned porticoes that evoke neo-classical style. Inside, Palladio is well appointed in a red, black and cream scheme. Wood plan tation sh utters cover the windows, giving the dining room a shadowy intimacy. Red napkins and real red roses in vases pop next to white linen tablecloths. Italian advertising prints decorate some of the walls. Chef Calcara grew up helping her parents at their Italian restaurant in Ocean City, Md. Classically trained in Italy and at Le Cordon Bleu in Los Angeles, she boasts mentors including hot-headed TV chef Gordon Ramsey and Nancy Silverton, the California pastry chef who gave rise to the artisanal baking trend. Its hard to discern their particular influence, but Palladio definitely demonstrates a dedication to quality ingredients, precision cooking and interesting flavor profiles. Even though youll find some of the usual crowd-pleasing Italian-American restaurant favorites (think fried calamari, steamed mussels and lasagna), its not just another red-sauce joint. Word seems to have spread, because the sprawling restaurant appears to be attracting enough traffic to survive the lean months before seasonal residents trickle back into Bonita. I doubt it will be so easy to get a table a couple of months from now. The wine list offers a good sampling of Italian selections, if you bypass the commonplace house wines. The Palladio Chianti ($8) from Tuscany our server recommended had more depth and roundness than most lower-priced chiantis. The appetizer menu offers a few surprises along with the standards. Cioppino is usually reserved for the main course, as are lamb chops, but here theyre $22 starters. Chef Calcara even manages to elevate bruschetta with toppings including beets with goat cheese and microgreens, and apples with gorgonzola and arugula. You could also start with a 9-inch pizza with toppings such as prosci utto, arugula and radicchio. We chose to start with the meatballs ($12) for something traditional, and the burrata ($14) because its relatively new for Southwest Florida menus. If youre accustomed to dense, heavy, dry orbs of ground meat, Palladios delicate, airy meatballs could be a revelation. The key, as the chef clearly knows, is mixing and rolling the meat without overworking or overpressing it. Draped with chucky tomato sauce and melted cheese, the meatball trio would make a good entre with a small side of pasta. Burrata is a welcome addition to the appetizer repertoire. Fresh, milky mozzarella is wrapped around a soft creamy center that adds a lush note to what it otherwise a fairly humble ball of cheese. We smeared it on toasted bread along with dabs of green and red sauce (pistachio and sundried tomato purees, respectively) served in tiny, shallow bowls that proved inadequate for the task. Both plates were quickly emptied and promptly carried away. Our server was helpful and accommodating, timing courses well and not trying to oversell anything. (However, his heavy cologne tended to arrive before he did.) For entrees, there are about a dozen enticing pasta dishes, ranging from spaghetti carbonara to angel hair tossed with crabmeat. The gnocchi ($22) are handmade and available with meat sauce, cream sauce with peas and ham, or my choice of sage and butter. Sometimes the simplest preparation is the best, and a splash of b utter flecked with evergreenscented herbs did nothing to upstage enjoyment of the main ingredient: the tender, pillowy dumplings. I especially liked the hint of sweetness and licorice imparted by a sprinkling of crushed amaretto cookies. When its first served, it might look like a spartan portion, but a bowl of a dozen or so gnocchi will not leave you hungry. And speaking of not going hungry, the veal chop ($36) looked positively Fred Flintstonian, its hefty bone hanging off the side of the plate. And the meat? Perfection amazingly tender, sweet and juicy. The chop was served on a bed of fluffy polenta and swathed in a glossy, deeply flavorful porcini demi-glace thick with mushrooms. My companion said it was the best chop hed had in years, and I couldnt disagree. If, unlike me, youre not tired of tiramisu, youll probably enjoy Chef Calcaras time-tested take on the dessert, which shes been making since she was 8 years old. We opted instead for a delicious crostada ($8) layered with pastry cream and a bounty of berries: red currants, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. Another good choice is the adult milk and cookies ($12), a sampling of Italian confections served with your choice of limoncello or Sambuca. From start to finish, Palladio Trattoria proves theres still room for another good Italian restaurant in Southwest Florida. drew STERWALDcuisine@floridaweekly.com Palladio Trattoria>> Hours: 4-10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday, 4-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Appetizers, $9-$22; entrees, $16-$39 >> Beverages: Full bar >> Specialties of the house: Northern Italian cuisine >> Volume: Low >> Parking: Attached lot >> Website: palladiotrattoria.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: 28340 Trails Edge Blvd., Bonita Springs; 947-2202 Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor DREW STERWALD / FLORIDA WEEKLYCreamy burrata is served with pistachio and sundried tomato purees.

The Ronto Group announced construction of its 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass at Bonita Bay high-rise tower within Bonita Bay continues to progress on schedule. Ronto anticipates construction taking approximately 26 months with completion expected by summer, 2018. Seaglass is being built by the team of BCBE Construction and Stiles Construction. To date, 253 tons of steel (506,000 pounds) have been put in place on the construction site. A total of 543 trucks have delivered 5,422 yards of grout that has been pumped for the buildings 800 pilings. An additional 184 trucks have poured 1,833 yards of concrete for the piling caps, columns, and shear wall. Because some of the foundation elements are as deep as 13 to 15-feet below grade, the ground water at the deep excavation sites was removed and the sites were dried out prior the foundation being poured. Dewatering is a common practice in Florida when doing deep construction work. With construction well underway, opportunities for future residents to specify preferred finishes will become increasingly limited. The designer-selected finishes displayed at the Seaglass Design Studio and Sales Center at 26951 Country Club Drive within Bonita Bay are suited to the open concept living spaces at Seaglass. Rontos Finishing Touches Program allows future residents to visit the Design Studio and select finishes for their new homes flooring, cabinetry, countertops, door hardware, plumbing fixtures, and paint colors. Future residents may also specify finishes from other sources. Prospective homebuyers are encouraged to make their buying decisions and finish selections promptly. Seaglass will feature fully-completed, ready for occupancy residences with premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available. With the combination of the buildings captivating tower floor plan choices, various 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 full service marina, 12 miles of on-property hiking and biking trails, a tennis complex, and a residents-only private beach park, Seaglass is redefining the luxury high-rise living experience.

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.

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.

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.

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.
