Aubrey Garcia, like many teenagers in Collier County, witnessed firsthand the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma and searched for ways to help those in need. Ms. Garcias fundraising idea was to sell blocks of advertising on her prom dress, and the 17-year-old student reached out to local businesses and organizations with her idea. I got a lot of rejections, but heard a lot of positive feedback as well, Ms. Garcia said. The teen ended up collecting $1,550 through eight sponsorships, and after careful consideration, she decided to donate the money to Guadalupe Center, citing the nonprofit organizations track record of SEE PROM DRESS, A6 Naples teen gets an early start in ad salesDonates sponsorship funds from prom dress to charity Smith & Wesson M&P-15: An AR-15 variant, the weapon tested by Florida Weekly.ACLOSELOOKATA NOWICONICAMERICAN WEAPONTHE D FORGOTTEN WHAT IT FELT AND sounded like: a lightweight, gas-operated, semiautomatic rifle with a 30-round magazine pressed into my shoulder, staring through iron sites adjusted for wind and range, the sharp spats rather than booms when I squeezed the trigger spat, spat, spat, spat the subdued recoil allowing me almost effortlessly to keep the sight picture from one round to the next.

MYERS11750 S CLEVELAND AVE 239.275.3968 BRING YOUR FLORIDA LIFESTYLE HOME COMMENTARYCowsWhat many people dont know about cows is like what many people dont know about New York, where cows once thrived in its namesake city theyre not just cows. Theyre also science on the hoof. (And New York is not just New York City. Its also a vast and beautiful land of small towns, farms and wilderness.)When you see cows along the roads in Florida or anywhere else, therefore, youre also looking at evolutionary biology. Every one of those cows is the consequence, in part, of human design, inspired by a still-robust beef economy. Herefords, Brafords, Angus, Charolais, Santa Gertrudis, Holsteins, Brangus, Brahman and Cracker cows, the criollotype breed that could survive trans-Atlantic voyages sometimes of months in small sailing vessels and then live in the Florida scrub, first brought to North America by the Spanish conquistadors all of them are here in the Sunshine State, although the finest cows in North America now exist only in one place: near Coldwater, Kan. More on that shortly. About 94.4 million cows live in the U.S. today, according to government estimates, with the biggest cattle producers on the list the ones you might imagine: Texas, with 12.5 million cows and 13.24 percent of the cow population, followed by Nebraska, Kansas, California and Oklahoma, each with populations ranging from about 5 million to 6.8 million cows. Colorado, where the Nash side of my family ranched, is No. 10, with 2.8 million cows. And Florida has fallen from its one-time status of second-biggest cow producing state (weve had cows here for 500 years) to No. 18 on the list today, with 1.63 million hardworking American cows. As a cow-calf state, Floridas bulls and heifers produce about 800,000 calves for beef production each year. Farmers also manage about 100,000 dairy cows that can produce 2 billion pounds of raw milk every year, according to All those cows create a lot of flatulence and manure a problem for the vast natural water systems intimately connected to grazing and dairy lands, but thats another cow story. If you dont like cows, you could move to a place with few or none: Rhode Island, for example, has only 5,000 cows. And New York City nowadays has none, to my knowledge. Although once while riding a city bus through the South Bronx or Spanish Harlem I rounded a corner and came into sudden view of a small, miserablelooking donkey, a red rooster and about four hens, all tucked into a dirt yard the size of a big bedroom surrounded by a little fence up against a six or sevenstory building, itself pressed against scores of similar buildings. Maybe some enterprising person has a cow as well as a donkey in the Big Apple so lets put New York City down on the list for one cow, just in case. I mention this because Im proud of my cousin, Jane Nash Deewall, who grew up on the Nash Ranch in Colorado just like my mother did. Her father, B.F. Nash, carried on the line-bred Herefords my grandfather, Walter Nash, started. Jane has continued that breeding operation with her husband, cattleman Mike Deewall, on the ranch his family longago homesteaded outside Coldwater. Once called (accurately, Im certain) the hardest-working woman in Commanche County or probably most other places Jane also works smart, which is why she was able to post this passing comment on her Facebook page one recent day: We have been told by at least two of our bull customers that their F1 calves outweigh their straight blacks by 90 to 100 pounds every year at weaning. I think that is what line breeding can do for a breeding program. The woman who said that, with her husband, just received the prestigious Graduate of Distinction award for 2018, given to those with degrees in Animal Science from Oklahoma State University and outstanding records of achievement and service in the field of Animal Agriculture. In 2014, the Deewalls also received the American Hereford Association Centennial Breeders Award. Its the science of, the caring for and the many years of hard work put into cows not only in Texas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Kansas, for example, but also in Florida. Hats off to science on the hoof, and its remarkable practitioners, the cattlewomen and cattlemen of America. roger B.F. Nash continued the family business begun by Roger Williams grandfather, Walter Nash.

Of course, no one should be dehumanized. Yet many of the same people expressing outrage that Trump would dehumanize vicious gang members have no problem dehumanizing innocent, unborn children. Trump has stood up for the humanity of the unborn child like no president in recent memory. And this is why so many Christian conservatives stick with him. Witness the foot-stomping standing ovation the president received May 22 at the annual Campaign for Life gala of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List. Not only was Trump reportedly the first president to address this incredible organization in its 26-year history, he used the occasion to deliver on yet another pro-life promise, one that his Republican predecessors could not, or would not, fulfill: He announced a new rule to stop indirect taxpayer funding of abortion through the Title X family planning program. When I ran for office, I pledged to stand for life, and as president, thats exactly what I have done, Trump declared. Today, we have kept another promise. My administration has proposed a new rule to prohibit Title X funding from going to any clinic that performs abortions. Any organization receiving Title X funds will be required to establish a bright line of both physical and financial separation between its family planning activities and any program or facility that performs or refers women for abortions. Since 1976, federal law has prohibited use of federal funds for abortion. But today, Planned Parenthood clinics that receive federal family planning funds often essentially refer women for on-site abortions. Under Trumps Protect Life Rule, this will no longer be permitted. The Protect Life Rule is a victory prolife Americans have been awaiting for three decades. President Ronald Reagan first issued a version of the rule in 1988, but pro-abortion groups challenged it in court. The George H.W. Bush administration fought them all the way to the Supreme Court and won: In 1991, the court upheld the Reagan rule in Rust v. Sullivan. But the ruling came too late; Bill Clinton soon took office and withdrew the rule. When George W. Bush was elected, he failed to reinstate the rule during his eight years in office. My former White House colleague Yuval Levin recently wrote that the reinstatement effort was abandoned in the spring of 2006, in a deputies-level policy gathering that was one of the most contentious meetings I ever witnessed in government. In the Trump administration, there were apparently no contentious meetings or hand-wringing over the impact on Capitol Hill. He just did it. This fearlessness when it comes to the cause of life is what warms the hearts of Christian conservatives and makes them loyal to the president. The left is, of course, outraged. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) called Trumps action despicable, and the New York Times editorial page complained that the rule could devastate groups like Planned Parenthood. That is, unfortunately, a gross overstatement, as Planned Parenthood gets three-quarters of its federal funds through Medicaid, which would not be impacted. But it is music to pro-life ears. And despite Democrats anger, the new rule should have broad public support. A Marist poll released in January found that 60 percent of Americans oppose using tax dollars for abortion, while only 36 percent approve. Since taking office, Trump has taken many steps to ensure our tax dollars are not used to subsidize the taking of innocent human life. He got a record number of conservative judges confirmed during his first year; allowed states to defund Planned Parenthood; defunded the pro-abortion United Nations Population Fund; restored and expanded the Mexico City policy banning taxpayer funds for groups that perform abortions overseas; and exempted organizations with moral objections against providing abortifacient drugs from the Obamacare Health and Human Services mandate. He is, as SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser put it Tuesday, the most pro-life president in our nations history. Every life is sacred, and ... every child is a precious gift from God, Trump declared Tuesday night. We know that every life has meaning and that every life is totally worth protecting. Trump is doing everything in his power to protect those lives. That is why pro-life conservatives stick with him. The Chinese threat isnt just tradeWe are currently engaged in a highprofile negotiation that may or may not succeed in getting the Chinese to buy more of our stuff. This is a fine goal as far as it goes, although that isnt very far. It doesnt matter if China buys $14 billion of our soybeans or $25 billion of our soybeans it is still a mercantilist, revisionist power representing a significant geopolitical challenge. China isnt just a commercial but a strategic competitor with the United States. It seeks to restore its former national glory, establish hegemony in East Asia and unravel Pax Americana. President Xi Jinping champions a national revival (The Chinese Dream) that flies in the face of the expectations that economic growth would soften China. China uses its economic clout to back self-interested investments around the world and has poured resources into a decades-long military buildup. As it has grown in strength, it has become increasingly assertive in making maritime claims in the region. It harasses its neighbors it wants to cow into submission, as we are shouldered aside. We have long failed to grapple with the Chinese threat because we have believed that rising per capita income would do our work for us by inevitably democratizing China; because corporate America covets the Chinese market; and because, as Miles Maochun Yu of the Naval Academy points out, we are always playing the China card in pursuit of some other strategic objective currently, the denuclearization of North Korea rather than focusing on China in its own right. At the moment, we are in the midst of a collective national freakout about Russia, a second-rate power. Chinas economy is eight times bigger than Russias. While Russia is associated with the weapons of the 20th century, China is heavily investing in high-tech weapons cyberwarfare capabilities, hypersonic rockets, anti-satellite missiles and the like. The United States cannot assume, the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission warned, it will have an enduring advantage in developing next frontier military technology. The comprehensive challenge of China deserves a comprehensive response. Diplomatically, we need to strengthen relations with all those countries on Chinas periphery that feel threatened by it, Taiwan and Japan in particular. Militarily, we need to spend more on research and development and on building up our Navy. And we need to make it clear to China, through robust patrolling, that we are committed to maintaining freedom of navigation in the region. Economically, we need a better longterm approach to Chinas mercantilism than blustery threats of tariffs. This will require allies, which means that we should return to the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The pact was designed to lock China out of creating trade norms in the region, but Trump abandoned it in a perversely self-defeating protectionist gesture. The Chinese flatter themselves that they have a long view that unstable American democracy lacks. When dealing with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, apparently desperate for any agreement he can wave around as a victory in the much-advertised looming trade war, they must feel confirmed in their belief. We need a strategy to convince them otherwise, and it will be the work of decades. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. mark THEISSENWashington Post rich LOWRYKing Features

On prom night, most students are focused on their hair, makeup and transportation, said Dawn Montecalvo, pr esident of Guadalupe Center. Ive seen the photos, and Aubrey looked stunning in her prom dress, but she was more concerned with using that special night to create an opportunity to help others in the community. She wanted to send a strong message that we need to look beyond ourselves. What an incredible young woman.Guadalupe Center, which has a mission of breaking the cycle of poverty through education for the children of Immokalee, selected 2018 Immokalee High School graduate Barbara St. Fleur, a senior in its college-preparatory Tutor Corps program, to receive the funds. Ms. St. Fleurs laptop was severely damaged during the hurricane, and shes been using a borrowed computer since last fall. Ms. St. Fleur, who is heading to Arcadia University in Pennsylv ania on a full scholarship, needed to find a permanent solution. Ms. Garcia and Ms. St. Fleur met earlier this month. It was the first time the two teenagers had met; through their first conversation, they realized that both were taking early admissions classes at Florida SouthWestern State College. After being presented with her new HP laptop from Ms Garcia. Ms. St. Fleur reflected on the positive gesture. You usually dont hear about a dress or fashion unless a person is wearing something inappropriate, so for her to use her prom dress for a good cause is amazing, said Ms. St. Fleur. Golden Gate High held its prom on April 28 at the Hilton Naples, and Ms. Garcia wore a black skirt coupled with a white sleeveless top. The dress featured advertisements from Barron Collier Companies, the Maurizi family, Remnant Construction, S&J Renovations, Asset Management Solutions, FOX4, Goodyear and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, each printed on fabric paper, attached to a sash made by Ms. Garcia and pinned to her skirt. Only a small group of friends knew about Ms. Garcias dress before prom night. Everybody is so stuck on graduation and prom, and what they want to wear, Ms. Garcia said. They all wondered, Why are you wearing logos? After they found out, though, most of them thought it was a cool idea.

Last year, organizers said, more than 4,000 people attended the event. The family friendly public event includes entertainers, speakers, musicians, performers, vendors, exhibitors, kids activities, food and beer in a celebration in name of equality. Naples Pride celebrates diversity and unity, educates the community on LGBTQ issues and promotes equal rights for all, organizers say. The event features opening remarks by Naples Mayor Bill Barnett and brings back spin-master DJ Kooshie and MC Liquid, reprising his role as master of ceremonies. Other entertainers include classically trained Marco Kircher performing the national anthem, as well as participation by the Southwest Florida Gay & Lesbian Choir, the SWFL Burlesque Alliance, Rascals Productions, the TP Lords, the Bambusa Babes, House of Valentines and the True Blue Motown Band. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Rainbow Flag, the internationally recognized symbol of the LGBT community, this years Naples Pride Festival will be opened with a Raise the Rainbow flag ceremony. The Rainbow Flag was designed by noted gay activist and artist Gilbert Baker and first raised in San Francisco in June 1978 at a gay rights march organized by Harvey Milk. This years ceremony will be dedicated both to the memory of Baker, who died last year and would have celebrated his birthday on June 2, and to all those who have fought for gay rights and equality. The vendors over 80 will be in the park include those offering food and drinks, grassroots organizers, retail exhibitors and political candidates. Organizers have expanded the festival perimeter to encompass all of Cambier Park. A $5 entry donation and funds raised during the event, combined with contributions from sponsors and vendors, will support the Naples Pride LGBTQ Task Force Emergency Fund.

Brown, MD, FACSFounder & Medical DirectorLifetime Eye Care for the Entire Family Community delivers in Letter Carriers Food DriveSouthwest Florida raised more than 210,000 pounds of food for the 26th annual National Letter Carriers Food Drive earlier this month. The exact preliminary number was 210,250 pounds of canned food, according to Harry Chapin Food Banks Fort Myers Distribution Center. Food will continue to come in from other post offices in Lee County, but the nations largest single-day food drive continued to be a hit in Southwest Florida. Stamp Out Hunger is the one day when letter carriers collect non-perishable food that has been left by residents at their mailboxes. The National Association of Letter Carriers holds the drive. Locally, the Harry Chapin Food Bank and the United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee Counties partner with the letter carriers to make the food drive happen. Hundreds of volunteers assisted the letter carriers with picking up the food, and also unloaded and sorted the food at various postal drop-off sites. Boxes and bags of canned food could be seen strewn across Southwest Florida mailboxes during the drive. As season comes to an end and the area enters its hot summer months, the excess food will act as a boon for locals in need throughout the toughest time of the year. We are overwhelmed by the support from our community, said Richard LeBer, president and CEO of the Harry Chapin Food Bank. The outpouring of generosity means we will be able to feed many more people than we did before. We are so proud of our partnership with the Letter Carriers and the United Way. Letter Carrier George Sciascia of the U.S. Postal Service, who coordinates the food drive locally for the letter carriers, also expressed his gratitude to the community. Year in and year out the residents here in Lee County show that they are among the most caring folks in the nation by donating hundreds of thousands of pounds of food, he said. Last year your letter carriers, along with hundreds of volunteer helpers, collected over 300,000 pounds of food, and while the final results arent in yet, this year appears to be even better. All food collected in Lee County will be distributed by the Harry Chapin Food Bank and several other agencies. The food stays in the community. The Letter Carriers Food Drive helps food banks and the agencies they serve stay supplied with food during the summer months, when school is out and the need is great. Harry Chapin Food Bank serves 28,000 people per week through more than 150 partner agencies in Charlotte, Collier, Lee, Glades and Hendry counties.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYtargets, each spaced several feet apart, some closer or farther and none more than 30 yards from me, and hit all of them repeatedly. Roughly five seconds after that, I could have a second magazine, this one with 35 rounds in a 40-round capacity to ease pressure on the spring, locked into my weapon with a round loaded, ready to fire. Almost anyone could. Its part of why these are popular with recreational shooters you can shoot with great accuracy at 25 to 50 yards, said Peter Lucier, a combat veteran of the Marine Corps and a Marine Corps Combat Marksmanship Coach who has written about AR-15s in the The Washington Post and The Daily Beast, among other publications. AR is an acronym for the ArmaLite Rifle first developed in 1956, and sold to Colt three years later. The term AR-15 is now used generically to describe a broad family of military-style, gas-operated, semiautomatic rifles marketed by domestic and international gun makers. Most indoor ranges are 25 yards. A lot of people can look really good (shooting there). When I trained with these, we shot at 500 yards, 20 times the distance. But Id be surprised if the engagements in schools, for example, are happening at more than 25 yards. Not even that. Given the now-significant role AR-15 rifles play in American culture, Florida Weekly decided to take a look at the weapon not as the political icon it has become, but as an object most Americans have heard described, many Americans own or use in sport, and that some Americans in civilian life have been killed or injured by. With my fellow reporter and son, Evan Williams, I bought one of the many versions now offered by American and other gunmakers, the popular Smith & Wesson M&P-15 (M&P is an acronym for Military & Police, for whom Smith & Wesson designed it originally), at a gun store called Shoot Straight, in Fort Myers. The company operates stores in eight Florida locations, including Orlando, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Clearwater, Tampa, Lakeland and Sarasota. With the purchase we included two extra magazines, one 30-round mag and one 40-round mag for $15 and $20, respectively; a cleaning kit for less than $15; and 120 rounds of 5.56 mm ammunition, the military version of the .223 caliber round, at about $15 for each 30-round box. The rifle itself was on sale for less than $600. Total cost: $702. To buy the weapon, I gave one of the clerks my drivers license, filled out a brief form that asked if I was a felon, wanted by law enforcement, or an American, and waited three days. Then I went back and picked up the gun and accessories. Once, I could put rounds with such a weapon through a dinner plate-sized target 500 yards away, 300 yards away or 200 yards away from various shooting positions about 10 times out of 10 on a clear day with no wind. I wasnt being shot at, I wasnt tired, I wasnt hunting and I certainly wasnt in a public school, a church, a business, a theater or at a concert. I was on a military shooting range. But that is not how the weapon has become prominently known in American culture. Running the numbersDONT CALL AR-15S ASSAULT WEAPONS, A political term used to vilify the rifle and other semiautomatic weapons, says the NRA and the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Instead, the gun industry calls them modern sporting rifles. While they have made headlines for their role in mass shootings since 2007, 220 people have been killed in mass shootings involving AR-15s, according to data compiled by the Stanford Geospatial Center and Stanford Libraries and USA Today theyre widely used for almost anything but GUNFrom page 1 TEKMAT / COURTESY ILLUSTRATIONEugene Stoner created the first lightweight, gas-operated, semi-automatic AR-15 or ArmaLite Rifle for that company in the 1950s. It was simple to operate, but complex in engineering and design. Colt bought the design for $75,000 and a future share of profits, in 1959. By the mid-1960s, the U.S. military had adopted it for use in Vietnam. Common terms>> AR-15: The speci c model designation of a Colt-made ri e, the term AR-15 is also now generic, describing any of a family of military-style, lightweight, gas operated, semiautomatic ri es originally designed for military use by the ArmaLite company.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 NEWS A11assaulting people. Owners buy them as collectors items or for self-defense, hunting, target practice and shooting competitions. Gun enthusiasts attest to their ease of use, military and historical pedigree, and especially their almost Lego-like modularity they can be tricked out with an array of scopes, lights and grips, and reconfigured to shoot many types of ammunition in quantities generally ranging from 10 to 100 bullets. The rounds used in an AR-15 style gun include most commonly the .223, but it can be built to fire a .22, .308, 6.8 SPC and .450 Bushmaster, among others. There are even shotgun versions, the NSSF says. The industry association calls AR-15s among the most popular firearms being sold. It is not known how many Americans own AR-15s and other semiautomatic rifles because there are no public records that track that information. Firearm industry estimates vary from 8 million to 15 million. Guns have been a booming business in the U.S. for more than a decade, the most recent ATF figures show. U.S. manufacturers made 3.2 million firearms in 2005. In 2015, they made 9.4 million; 3.7 million alone were rifles. In all, from 2005 to 2015, 70.8 million guns were made; 26.8 million were rifles. The number of NICS firearm background checks used to determine eligible gun buyers (though it does not show how many ended up purchasing a gun) also more than doubled from 11.2 million in 2007 to 25.2 million in 2017. AR-15s have repeatedly proven themselves devastating assault weapons in mass shootings, but they are used relatively rarely in homicides. The most recent FBI data shows that handguns were used in 7,105 homicides in 2016 while rifles were used in 258. Amy Hunter, a spokesperson for the NRA Institute for Legislative Action in Fairfax, Va., said the term assault weapon is misleading. A lot of media are very uneducated about what these firearms (AR15s) actually are, how they function, what role they play and what theyre used for, she said. Theyve demonized these firearms, which are functionally just rifles that have added cosmetic components. Hannah Shearer, a staff attorney at San Francisco, Calif.-based Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, which advocates banning assault weapons, pointed out that the core pieces of the AR-15 are the same as an M-16. Overall, these are semiautomatic long guns that are modeled after military weapons and theyre more deadly than other types of weapons, she said. And when theyre used in mass shootings it results in more people being shot, and more people being killed. Mr. Lucier, recalling his extensive experience as a Marine with M-16s and M-4s, offered roughly the same opinion. Asked by Florida Weekly to name any significant differences between a weapon such as the Smith & Wesson M&P-15, one of many versions of the weapon on the market, and the rifles he used in the Marine Corps, he didnt. Theyre not significantly different, he said. These are the same weapons. The selector switch, and having the option (on military rifles) to shoot full auto is not a significant distinction. We dont shoot on full auto. If we have to go full auto we use heavier machine guns usually operated by a team of two or three. So its a distinction without a difference. That distinction is immediately noticeable in civilian versions of the military M-16 or newer M-4. The selector switch manipulated instantly with the thumb of the shooter offers two options only: safe and semi. There is no auto. Unless altered, therefore, it is a semiautomatic rifle, able to fire one round with each pull of the trigger. The military counterparts can fire either continuously on auto with a single compression of the trigger in which case barrels can overheat, ammunition will rapidly deplete and accuracy will become nominal or commonly in three-round bursts. How they workTHE SEMIAUTOMATIC AR-15 is built for the small-caliber, high-velocity concept, Mr. Lucier said. When youre shooting at people, you want to put a lot of shots, generally accurate, in the area of the people, so you can then close with them and kill them. Thats easier to do with a lightweight, smaller-caliber weapon using high velocity rounds. The M-14 (used early in the Vietnam War) shot the equivalent of a .308 Winchester it was a 7.62 mm round. The .223 or 5.56 used by the military now is much more manageable. I can carry a lot more rounds with the .223, with a loaded 30-round magazine that weighs about a pound and a half. A 20-round mag with a .308 will weigh more than twice that. It can be a big factor in war. Or in mass shootings. I can easily carry 30, 60, 90, 120 rounds on my person, which ups the death counts in these mass shootings. And because that recoil is much more manageable, I can continue firing accurately, especially at closer ranges. With the M-14 or say the .30-30 Winchester a lot of people use to hunt deer, theres a lot of recoil, and its harder to shoot fast. ArmaLite, the company that originally made these weapons 60 years ago in California, designed them for soldiers using a patented gas-operating system from engineer and inventor Eugene Stoner, still in use today. The shooter loads the first round into the chamber by pulling back the charger handle and releasing it. In a process almost instantaneous, gas from every fired round is blown back through a tube, slapping the bolt carrier group backward to bounce off a buffer. The now-spent casing is ejected while the bolt carrier group snaps forward, loading the next round. Some historyTHE U.S. MILITARY ACQUIRED THE DESIGN in the early 1960s, called it the M-16, and deployed it in Vietnam, where it replaced the M-14 as a standard-issue rifle. The weapons are lightweight and have little recoil, characteristics that make them popular and enhance their accuracy and ease of use by soldiers and civilians alike. In 1959 Colt bought the rights to the AR-15 design. During the next decade the company advertised a new AR-15 Sporter for hunters, campers and collectors. The weapon wasnt particularly popular, however, until 1989, when a shooter killed five children and wounded 32 others in an elementary school in Stockton, Calif., with an AK-47 the gas-operated assault rifle once used against Americans by North Vietnamese and Viet Cong. Following a robust advertising campaign by marketers, sales shot up. Starting in 1994, new federal rules signed by President Bill Clinton made selling assault weapons including the AR-15, illegal. Such weapons were defined as semiautomatic with detachable magazines and any two of five characteristics: telescoping or folding stocks, pistol grips, bayonet mounts, flash suppressors or grenade launchers. But one decade later, in 2004 during the administration of President George W. Bush, the ban expired and Congress chose not to renew it. Demand for the gun surged with advertising, and most gun manufacturers developed their own versions of the AR-15. Since then, seven states California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York, along with the District of Columbia have passed laws banning assault weapons, the Giffords Center says. Those weapons are now defined in part by generic features that make them easier to fire, and by their ability to hold high-capacity magazines. The seven states, with Colorado, have also enacted bans on high-capacity magazines. Some states define high-capacity as holding more than 10 rounds; others as more than 15. Improvements and aficionadosAS THE MILITARY IMPROVED DESIGN ELEments of its guns over the years, some made their way into the civilian market. For instance, customers have a choice between AR-15s that utilize Mr. Stoners original operating system or a gas piston system used in AK47s and designed to be more reliable in some conditions such as the dusty Middle East, said Matt Mink, manager at Naples Guns & Ammo. Mr. Mink says the AR-15s popularity comes in part from its patriotic roots defending our country and in part because it simply looks cool. But the reason its so great is its light, its reliable, the recoil is moderate and you can build it up any way you SEE GUN, A12 When youre shooting at people, you want to put a lot of shots, generally accurate, When youre shooting at people, you want to put a lot of shots, generally accurate, in the area of the people, so you can then close with them and kill them. in the area of the people, so you can then close with them and kill them.

Charlotte County resident Leonard Dias, 49, said he owns about 20 AR-15s, part of a comprehensive collection of firearms that includes AK-47s, TEC-9s, shotguns and his favorite, a .30-30 Winchester rifle. He bought his first AR-15 for home defense, and finds it to be a great rush to shoot for casual target practice. I like the AR because as fast as you press that trigger the bullets will come out, he said. You could literally, if you shoot on a tree, you could knock the tree down. I just like the firepower that it has. Mostly, though, he has a passion for collecting all kinds of things, a habit he has extended to baseball cards, stamps and coins. Hailing from Boston, Mr. Dias didnt get into guns until after he moved to Florida in the mid-1980s and friends introduced him to the hobby. He funds his collections through a successful disaster cleanup and restoration business anything from water damage to crime scenes. Noting that his business is recession proof, Mr. Dias said hes not much interested in politics and doesnt follow the debate about gun control. He enjoys buying or upgrading his AR-15s with all the bells and whistles. One has a grenade launcher attached, another a high-powered sniper scope that would allow him to take longrange shots accurately. But he doesnt use his guns for hunting. I dont think I could shoot an animal, Mr. Dias said, unless it was attacking him. I just couldnt shoot something thats just standing there. Punta Gorda resident Matt Uebelacker Jr., 34, is a gun collector and certified NRA instructor. Many guns in the civilian marketplace are high-powered, semiautomatic rifles that allow people to shoot bullets relatively quickly, he points out, not just ARs. There are other firearms out there that have similar characteristics as an AR-15 but they dont get talked about as much because theyre not as flashy, he said. But the AR-15 platform has a style and versatility that is appealing to many gun owners. He is adept at assembling AR-15s in their many configurations depending on personal preference and use. Do you want to shoot up close? Mr. Uebelacker asks. Do you want to shoot longer distances? Are you trying to shoot with a scope or iron sites? It kind of comes down to, what do you want to do for fun? Or is there a purpose? such as home defense. Mr. Uebelacker enjoys shooting many types of guns, including ARs. I enjoy the history behind them, he said. I like what theyre about, and its our right to defend ourselves as Americans if need be, but thats not the only reason to have firearms. Mark Oliva, a spokesperson for NSSF who lives in Virginia, has an AR-15 configured for hunting. Mr. Oliva scheduled an interview with Florida Weekly for Friday, May 18. But that morning he declined, per NSSFs policy, as news unfolded of a mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas, where the murderer used a Remington 870 pump shotgun and a .38 pistol, according to news reports. Out of respect for the families were going to decline to make any comments regarding firearms, Mr. Oliva said. Law enforcement officials have also proved laconic in discussing these weapons. Florida Weekly contacted sheriffs offices in Palm Beach, Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties, and asked the Florida Sheriffs Association for comments: How many AR-15 style weapons have they confiscated in the last two years? Does the existence of such weapons among civilians create extra work in training, or anxiety, for law enforcement personnel? Only the Lee County Sheriffs Office responded. From January 2015 thru present, we as an agency have had 4,420 guns pass through evidence, wrote Sgt. Anita Iriarte. This includes all firearms. Unfortunately we are unable to distinguish the make and model of the firearms. On the receiving end WRITING IN THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY IN February, Dr. Heather Sher, a radiologist who treated victims of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, compared injuries from the gunmans AR-15, firing .223 rounds with a muzzle velocity of about 3,200 feet per second, with wounds from handguns firing 9mm rounds at about 1,200 fps. Bullets fired from a high-velocity rifle such as an AR-15 travel at almost three times the speed of a typical 9mm bullet, she pointed out. As a result, they cause far more damage to victims, especially when paired with a high-capacity magazine. The 9mm bullet leaves a track through the body about the size of the bullet, she explained. A faster bullet does not cause it to pass through the body more cleanly, but just the opposite; the bullet damages the tissue around it, parting it like waves of water displaced by (a) boat. This process is called cavitation; it leaves the displaced tissue damaged or killed. The high-velocity bullet causes a swath of tissue damage that extends several inches from its path. It does not have to actually hit an artery to damage it and cause catastrophic bleeding. Exit wounds can be the size of an orange. She compared the Parkland shooting to a shooting at the Fort Lauderdale airport in 2017, whose victims she also diagnosed. At the airport, the shooter used a 9mm semiautomatic handgun. The gunshot wounds were the same low-velocity handgun injuries that I diagnose every day; only their rapid succession set them apart, she wrote. And all six of the victims who arrived at the hospital that day survived. At Parkland, she wrote, Most of the victims died on the spot; they had no fighting chance at life. Another Southeast Florida trauma surgeon and Iraq War veteran, Dr. Robert Borrego, called Dr. Shers assessment of AR-15 and high-velocity gun injuries in The Atlantic Monthly really accurate. What happens is they impart so much energy when they go through the tissues that you get a blast effect and a pressure wave, he said. Handgun wounds are the most common type of firearms injury treated at St. Marys Medical Center in West Palm Beach, where Dr. Borrego is medical director of the trauma program. He estimates that he has seen over the past 10 years at St. Marys at least 25 to 50 victims with gunshot wounds that have been consistent with a highvelocity weapon. None were from mass shootings. The percentage of patients that will die or lose a limb in my experience has been higher in patients that have wounds from AR-15-type weapons rather than handgun wounds, he said. So they are riskier and more lethal. They cause more damage and the outc ome is not as good. In Iraq, he served with an Army Reserve surgical team during the first six months of the war in 2003, and witnessed injuries to civilians and soldiers, including those who had been shot by M-16 rifles. The M-16 is built to shoot more rounds in a short period of time, (but) the M-16 wounds are pretty much the same as the AR-15 wounds. Except there may be more, in a military scenario. With a typical handgun injury, Dr. Borrego said that damaged organs such as the liver might often be saved with surgery, while that is not usually the case with a high-velocity rifle wound. With an AR-15 the blast effect is so damaging that (if) the liver gets pulverized, most of those patients dont do well, he said. The same thing for any solid organs in the abdomen. Like if it hits a kidney or a spleen with a highvelocity rifle the organ gets pulverized and theres not much to save.

Theres no room for compromise when stuffing 707 horsepower into the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The exterior is similar to the Hemipowered SRT8 one rung below this supercharged SUV on the power ladder. It makes sense that the Trackhawk would share its siblings appearance. With a bulldog-like front end, deep intake ports in the hood, and all the trim blacked out from the headlight surrounds to the 20-inch wheels, it would be hard to improve the mean-factor any more on this package. Inside is a pure upper-class experience that should also be familiar to anyone who has spent time in a premium Chrysler product. The special Trackhawk-embossed leather seats have the same deep bolster design as on other SRT (Street and Racing Technology) cars. Everything from a touchscreen infotainment system to heated and cooled seats are standard, so no one complains up front. In the rear, plenty of room for three keeps grievances to a minimum. The center console houses the most unique and interesting part of the car. Where most Jeep 4x4s have a dial to select the terrain, the Trackhawk has much more. After all, when was the last time anyone has seen an off-road machine that also has a setting for the racetrack? This one even has launch control, readouts to record lap times and how much horsepower is being utilized at any moment. A real-time power readout is probably nice for the racetrack, but the real reason this was likely added is because of how fun it is to watch a Jeep instantly dial up the kind of muscle that surpasses most family sedans. Thats what happens with a 6.2-liter V8 topped with a 2.4-liter supercharger all sitting under the hood. The 707 horsepower this creates makes the Trackhawk the undisputed 0-60 mph king of all the SUVs. It has a magical moment where the throttle gets pegged to the floor, the exhaust lets out a beastly growl, and then life begins to move in fast-forward. Its the SUV that loves hijinks, and yet can still tow up to 7,200 pounds putting it on the higher end of premium sports SUVs. Whats most impressive about the Trackhawk is the ride. The SRT8 felt a little too top heavy for its power. The sticky Pirelli street tires combined with the default bouncy shock setting results in a tipsy highway ride. In the Trackhawk, the Bilstein sports suspension is upgraded to a competition grade. It makes the ride stiffer by default. While thats usually not what people want in a family SUV, its exactly what this specialty Jeep needs to work in harmony with the rest of its performance upgrades. The Hellcat motor lives up to its wild animal name in Dodges rear-wheel drive Challenger and Charger. No tires can keep up with the amount of torque this tries to lay down when the accelerator is pegged from a standstill. This beastly nature is part of the fun. But the Trackhawk is for those who dont feel like supervising an unruly animal. The all-wheel-drive system is great for enhancing grip. Plus, most of us have a survival instinct that doesnt allow high-speed cornering in a tall SUV. Jeep engineers have fought physics and made this worthy of the track, but most sane people wont test these limits. So instead of a hellcat, this is more like an agile mountain lion. In fact, one of the wildest parts of the Trackhawk is the price starting at $86,995. It comes loaded as standard, but there are a few options that executive-level buyers will want (like the $1,995, 19-speaker stereo system.) Add in a few of these features and the price rises close to six figures. Once thats achieved, BMW, Mercedes and Range Rover all have performance SUVs that can outmatch the Trackhawks luxury. None of these Europeans can come close to matching the horsepower and growl this specialty Jeep brings to the streets. Thus, it makes the corporate parking lot a battle between prestige and sheer brawn. This supercharged SUV is brute force and a well-balanced chassis wrapped in a very American total package. Its definitely a niche market, but then again, no one was ever going to call a 700plus horsepower SUV a mainstream machine. Love it or hate it, the Trackhawk is its own animal.

As customers took pictures, Restaurant Cat, as it came to be known, stared down calmly, KTXL TV reported. But when Chilis employees used a ladder to try to reach it, the cat climbed behind the neon chili pepper and wouldnt come out, so they left food and water. Presumably its keeping the pigeons away. Meanwhile, in Perth, Australia, another restaurant has taken a novel approach to a different animal problem: Customers at Hillarys 3Sheets are being offered water guns to shoot at seagulls, which have been ruining diners waterfront meals. It was bad, owner Toby Evans told Nine Network television on May 16, admitting the idea was a desperate measure. Before, theyd wait until customers had finished and got up, but now theyre getting cheekier and cheekier. Customers are on board, saying the pistols are working. (Maybe they need a Restaurant Cat of their own.)But, why? Making good on his promise, Welshman Mark Williams, 43, celebrated his third world snooker championship by conducting the post-match news conference at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, England, in the buff. Williams, who beat John Higgins of Scotland on May 7, is the events oldest winner in 40 years, Reuters noted. Im not going to say anything stupid ... but to be honest if I won this next year, Id cartwheel down here naked, Williams promised. The Daytona Beach International Airport was briefly evacuated early on May 11 when John Greenwood, 25, caused a ruckus as he rode around the baggage carousel in the nude, trying to get out onto the tarmac, reported News4Jax. Sheriffs deputies shocked him with a Taser, to which he responded: We gotta get outta here, theres a bomb going to go off. I planted a bomb in the bathroom. After sweeping the airport, officials found no explosives, but Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said they did find Greenwoods clothes in a backpack hidden in a hole in the bathroom wall. Described by Chitwood as a frequent flyer, Greenwood is known to local law enforcement, and he admitted taking drugs on Thursday night. He faces several charges after the incident.Easy way outLike any resourceful mom, Johanna Giselhall Sandstrom of Kyrkhult, Sweden, made lemonade out of lemons after she discovered a spelling error in her newly acquired tattoo. Sandstrom had asked the tattoo artist to entwine the names of her two children, Nova and Kevin, on her arm, and it wasnt until she arrived home that she realized the tattoo read Kelvin instead of Kevin. My heart stopped and I thought I was going to faint, Sandstrom told local newspaper Blekinge Lans Tidning. Removing the tattoo would require multiple treatments, she learned, so Sandstrom decided instead to change her 2-year-old sons name to Kelvin, The Independent reported on May 16. When I thought more about it, I realized that no one else has this name, she said. It became unique. Now we think it is better than Kevin.Weird scienceFor two years, Kendra Jackson of Omaha, Neb., had a box of Puffs ... everywhere I went, due to constant sneezing, coughing and nose-blowing that started after she hit her face on the dashboard during a car accident in 2013, she told KETV. Multiple doctors told her allergies were the cause, but eventually she was diagnosed with cerebrospinal fluid leak her brain fluid was leaking into her nasal cavity at the rate of about a half-pint a day. In early May, Nebraska Medicine rhinologist Dr. Christie Barnes plugged the small hole between Jacksons skull and nostrils with her own fatty tissue, giving Jackson the relief she had been seeking for years.Awwwwww ....Six baby squirrels in Elkhorn, Neb., found themselves in a sticky situation when their tails became tangled in tree sap and knotted together in their nest. When a man noticed what looked like a six-headed squirrely cluster moving around in a tree, wildlife expert Laura Stastny, executive director of Nebraska Wildlife Rehab, got the call. Stastny told the Omaha World-Herald that her group sees a case like this every year or so. She covered the squirrels with a towel to calm them and then snipped the fur that held them together.

Robust information technology at our fingertips is mission critical as our academic health care community evolves. Physically, we are the Readers Digest Condensed Version, with facile access to an unabridged, digitally-expanding knowledge base. Assisted by Cindy Truxall, who has 11 years of experience with education, libraries and hospitals, Annette is a wizard at helping our rapidly growing medical academic community members 12 medical residents (next month it will become 24), dozens of medical students, scores of nurses, countless technical staff, innumerable physicians, and others find peer-reviewed and evidenced-based articles. Institutionally, NCH produces many quality projects, helps our colleagues complete research papers for advanced degrees, and assists clinicians searching for answers to help patients, as well as supports potential employees in completing job applications and current colleagues in complying with continuing education requirements. All of these functions, although not normally associated with a hospital, are now indispensable as we evolve from a community hospital to an academic center. NCH has had a traditional medical library for at least the 41 years in which I have been on staff. We initially had many medical periodicals and an appropriate collection of medical textbooks set inside the Telford building with comfortable seating and workstations. Over the years we have gone digital, with easy access to a much broad-SEE WEISS, A19 SEE CANCER, A19 Cancer mortality continues to decline, prostate cancer mortality stabilizing NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHThe latest Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer finds that overall cancer death rates continue to decline in men, women and children in the United States in all major racial and ethnic groups. Overall cancer incidence, or rates of new cancers, decreased in men and were stable in women from 1999 to 2014. In a companion study, researchers reported that there has been an increase in incidence of late-stage prostate cancer and that after decades of decline, prostate cancer mortality has stabilized. The annual report is a collaborative effort between the National Cancer Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health; the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; the American Cancer Society; and the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries. The studies appeared online in Cancer on May 22, 2018. This years report is an encouraging indicator of progress were making in cancer research. As overall death rates continue to decline for all major racial and ethnic groups in the United States, its clear that interventions are having an impact, said NCI Director Ned Sharpless, M.D. The report also highlights areas where more work is needed. With steadfast commitment to patients and their families, we will be able to lower the mortality rates faster and improve the lives of those affected by cancer. The report includes mortality data through 2015. It shows that, from 1999 to 2015, overall cancer death rates decreased by 1.8 percent per year among men and by 1.4 percent per year among women. From 2011 to 2015, death rates decreased for 11 of the 18 most common cancer types in men and for 14 of the 20 most common cancer types in women. Over the same period, death rates for cancers of the liver, pancreas, and brain and other nervous system increased in both men and women; death rates for cancer of the uterus increased in women; and death rates for cancers of the oral cavity and pharynx and soft tissue increased in men. From 2010 to 2014, incidence rates decreased for seven of the 17 most common cancer types among men and for seven of the 18 most common cancer types among women. In the companion study, researchers explored prostate cancer trends in more detail. They found that overall prostate cancer incidence rates declined an average of 6.5 percent each year between 2007 and 2014, from a rate of 163 new cases per 100,000 men in the population in 2007 to 104 new cases per 100,000 in 2014. However, incidence of distant disease that is, of cancer that has spread from the original tumor to other parts of the body increased from a low rate of 7.8 new cases per 100,000 in 2010 to 9.2 new cases per 100,000 in 2014. Furthermore, after two decades of decline between 1993 and 2013, prostate cancer mortality leveled off between 2013 and 2015. Although rates of distant disease increased in recent years, there was no increase in the rates of cases with aggressive histologic grade (Gleason score of 9-10). This study also reports a decline in recent prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening in the population based on a series of national surveys. The reported decline in screening occurred between the 2010 and 2013 surveys, for men between 50 and 74 years of age, and after the 2008 survey, for men age 75 and older. The increase in late-stage disease and the flattening of the mortality trend occurred contemporaneously with the observed decrease in PSA screening in the population, said Serban Negoita, M.D., Dr.P.H., of NCIs Surveillance Research Program and lead author of the prostate cancer report. Although suggestive, this observation does not demonstrate that one caused the other, as there are many factors that contribute to incidence and mortality, such as improvements in staging and treating cancer. Additional research is needed to get a more comprehensive understanding of the recent trends and the possible relationship with PSA screening, as well as the relationship with other factors that may be associated with these trends. Findings in the first part of the report show that incidence and death rates for all types of cancer combined were higher in men than in women in every racial and ethnic group. For all cancer sites

We are asked to assist in searches of all types; thus, getting professional advice from an expert librarian at the outset yields credible and reliable information. We can quickly learn best practices from others, but need to be careful about maintaining high standards as we assimilate new ideas. Unfortunately, much of what one finds on the internet using standard searches is not of academic quality and can be misleading all the more reason to have an in-house expert who is responsive and pleased to teach. Recent topics researched were not what I might have expected as traditional medical subjects. For instance, What are best practices on rounding? We have academic hospitalists teaching medical residents and students virtually every day, hour and minute of the year. In one instance, two different colleagues asked the same question almost simultaneously. Getting folks together with common interests is also a worthwhile function. For a decade our nurses and members from our entire staff have completed quality projects for the institute of medicine and, more recently, for our own quality fair and celebration. Many of the presentations were first researched in our medical library. NCH, a learning organization for almost two decades, is now fully into teaching mode. Clearly, better information and greater knowledge improves quality national recognition with objective measures, namely five-star ratings from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid and helps everyone live a longer, happier and healthier life. bined, black men and white women had the highest incidence rates compared to other racial groups, and black men and black women had the highest death rates compared to other racial groups. NonHispanic men and women had higher incidence and death rates than those of Hispanic ethnicity. There continue to be significant declines in the cancer death rate with significant differences in rate by sex, race, and ethnicity, said Otis W. Brawley, M.D., chief medical officer for ACS. We need to continue working to understand the reasons for the disparities and how to most efficiently continue supporting and, if possible, accelerate these declines. The report also describes five-year survival during 2007-2013 by cancer stage at diagnosis for four of the most common cancers female breast cancer, colorectal cancer, lung and bronchus cancer, and melanoma of the skin. While five-year survival is high for early-stage disease for breast cancer, colorectal cancer, and melanoma, survival remains low for all stages of lung cancer, ranging from 55 percent for Stage I to 4 percent for Stage IV. This report underscores that if cancer is caught early, when it has the best chance of being treated, patients can live longer, said CDC Director Robert R. Redfield, M.D. Early detection and timely, quality treatment are keys to saving lives. Increases in death rates for several cancers continue to cause concern. Researchers suggest that the increase in liver cancer death rates is related to the high prevalence of hepatitis C virus infection among baby boomers, as well as to the high prevalence of obesity in the United States. Obesity is also thought to have contributed to the increase in death rates from cancers of the uterus and pancreas. The recent increase in oral cavity and pharynx cancer death rates among white men is thought to be associated with human papillomavirus infection. Its encouraging to see progress in decreasing death rates for many types of cancer, said Betsy A. Kohler, executive director, NAACCR. Yet the fact that death rates from several cancers are still on the rise means we need to keep working to find strategies to encourage prevention and continue to make improvements in screening and treatment.

Comprehensive Exam (D0150) Oral Cancer Screening Full Mouth Digital X-rays (D0210) PET TALESAltered states BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationPrimrose, a 3-year-old Pyrenean shepherd, has always had a lot of nervous energy to the point that her behavior could be annoying, says owner Deb Rabuck of Allentown, Pa. After Rabuck had Prim spayed last August, the dogs behavior changed, and not for the better. Already aggressive toward unknown dogs and people, she began urine-marking in the house and developed signs of anxiety such as panting and pacing. Prims behavior kept Rabuck from sleeping at night and disturbed her other dogs. I had to separate her from my other two dogs, she says. I was afraid they would kill her. She drives them crazy with all that energy. Rabuck took Prim to veterinary behaviorist Jacqueline Wilhelmy, VMD. After running lab tests to rule out possible health problems, Dr. Wilhelmy prescribed Prozac and gabapentin and offered behavior modification advice. It has been 11 days, and while Prim is still urine-marking, Rabuck is now able to sleep through the night. Pet behavior problems such as separation anxiety; thunderstorm or other noiserelated fears; compulsive disorders such as excessive chewing, licking, tail chasing or other repetitive behaviors; or aggression toward other animals or humans can all respond to many of the same psychoactive medications that help humans. They include fluoxetine (Prozac), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor; gabapentin, an antiseizure medication sometimes used off-label for pain and anxiety; tricyclic antidepressants such as amitriptyline; and benzodiazepines such as Xanax and Valium. Not in every case do we use a medication, but when it is indicated, it can really facilitate the progress of the case quite dramatically, says Patrick Melese, DVM, a veterinary behaviorist in San Diego, Calif. Medications used in humans have the same or similar effects in dogs and cats because the nervous systems of animals and humans operate in a similar manner. The goal is to normalize brain chemistry and improve the way the animal processes information. Shannon Gillespies border collie Fizz has taken Prozac for more than five years because she would explode when frustrated or excited and was unable to calm down quickly. About four years ago, when Fizzs veterinarian prescribed gabapentin for torn bicep and supraspinatus muscles, Gillespie noticed a further positive change in her behavior. Now Fizz takes both medications to help her maintain a calm demeanor. Medications can help decrease the animals overall level of anxiety, aggressive behavior, and reactivity and help with impulse control, says Wailani Sung, DVM, a veterinary behaviorist at San Francisco SPCA Behavior Specialty Service and coauthor of the book From Fearful to Fear Free. They are typically prescribed when the animal has a high level of anxiety, aggressive behavior and reactivity, (and) when the inappropriate behavior occurs daily or multiple times a week or is very intense.It can take several weeks on medication before pets become calm or relaxed enough to start learning new ways of coping or adjust to changes in the household or interactions with family members or other animals. How long medical therapy continues depends on the individual animal and situation. It can range from a few months to a year to a lifetime. Animals may stay on the same dose or have it gradually reduced as the situation improves. Medication by itself wont solve a pets behavior problems. Behavior modification and environmental changes, if needed, are a necessary part of treatment. (The exception, Dr. Melese says, is urine-marking in cats, which typically responds well to medication alone.) A veterinary behaviorist or certified applied animal behaviorist can develop a plan to help the animal respond more appropriately to the circumstances that trigger the behavior.

Can we not learn love from British royalty?I donned my bright red fascinator and carefully adjusted its jaunty tulle confection of an over-sized rose. I conducted a quick inventory of my ensemble in a full-length mirror why yes, my scarlet chapeau did look quite fetching with my black nightgown and leopard print bathrobe. I applied some lipstick and commenced to setting out the mimosa flutes. It was 4 a.m. and my guests were set to arrive any moment. There is very little that will coax me out of bed before 8 a.m. maybe an early morning flight to somewhere wonderful, or there was the time I had knee surgery and had to be at the hospital by 5:30 or some ungodly hour like that. But sharing the royal nuptials of divorced, American, biracial actress Meghan Markle and Prince Henry Charles Albert David with a gaggle of my friends over bubbly drinks, breakfast casserole and blueberry muffins was something I had been looking forward to ever since Prince Harry had gotten that Markle sparkle in his eye a couple of years ago. And while I woke up at zero dark thirty for Harrys parents wedding in 1981 when I was a teenager, and a lifetime later in 2011 for Harrys brother Williams wedding this one felt different. Even though Harry is the spare and not the heir, as an unapologetic royal watcher and anglophile, to me it felt momentous that the Windsors, with so many broken marriages in their family, threw the rules into the mote and finally let one of their own marry for pure love. Kate Middleton was a commoner when she married William, so it was a step but Harry marrying Meghan seemed more like a giant leap into a bold, new future. Meanwhile, here in the colonies, it felt like last week, and the week before that, and the one before that yet again. The day before the royal wedding, at Santa Fe High School near Houston, Texas, at 7:30 in the morning, gunshots rang out as eight students and two teachers were murdered by a 17-year-old student at the school. I found out on Facebook I was there searching for articles about what time the guests would be arriving at Windsor Castle for the royal wedding. And later that day, when I got online to look for a breakfast casserole recipe, I found this sobering fact reported in a CNN article: This is the 22nd U.S. school shooting since the beginning of the year, and the third instance in eight days in which a gunman was on a school campus. Later, when I started to surf around to find out who might be designing Meghans dress, I learned that the shooter used guns belonging to his father. The next day, my friends and I watched as the first biracial, divorced American became the Duchess of Sussex, as a black preacher from Chicago and as a black choir singing, Stand by Me were spotlighted in a centuries-old church where King Henry the VIII is buried and I realized that with time, things do change societies can move forward. And I wondered. When it comes to smart gun control laws and protecting our children, when will we change? When will WE move forward? As I crawled back into bed at 10 a.m. after the royal couple had taken their carriage ride around the castle, I wondered if any of the 10 victims in Texas were planning on setting their alarms for 4 a.m. on royal wedding day, just as I did when I was 17. stephanieDAVIS COURTESY SHUTTERSTOCKPrince Harry, Duke of Sussex, and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, leave Windsor Castle in an Ascot Landau carriage during a p rocession after getting married at St. Georges.


A22 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY FROM THE TOP A different kind of adrenaline rushVolvo Naples GM reflects on his transition from police officer to business owner BY ROBBIE SPENCERrspencer@ oridaweekly.comJoe Parisi admits he sometimes misses his old life in law enforcement. But the New York native harnessed his passion for service to others and an entrepreneurial streak to thrive in the pressure-packed realm of car sales, creating a laidback, value-based experience for employee and car buyer alike with the recently opened Volvo Cars of Naples. The Naples Boulevard location is the latest venture for Mr. Parisi, who has worked on acquiring and revamping local dealerships since 2013. He most recently sold his interest in past locations and now serves Volvo Cars of Naples as general manager and managing partner. Mr. Parisi moved to Southwest Florida from New York in 1988, beginning a career in local law enforcement in Cape Coral and elsewhere in Lee County until he came to a crossroads in 2001. (Being a police officer) was my dream. I felt good that I did it, but then I ended up getting married and starting a family, Mr. Parisi recalled. At that point, I thought law enforcement wasnt the wisest choice for my family. He made the fateful decision to leave his dream profession that year, in the name of lowering the risk factor for his family. I miss it everyday; the camaraderie, teamwork, and helping people. Mr. Parisis passion for service spilled over to his next profession as a car salesman. Its also why he quickly realized that despite his talent for selling cars, the status quo of service was not up to par by his standards. The business world has changed. In years past, you provided product at a price, Mr. Parisi said. But theres so much competition now, both brick and mortar and online. So what separates someone in such a cutthroat business sector like car sales? How do we compel people to want to do business with us on a consistent basis? was one of the many questions Mr. Parisi asked himself when he decided to venture on his own. Provide better and more service. I seek people that have a different belief system, that truly want to be in service. Mr. Parisi believes its the right mix of pricing, amenities and the quality of product that sets people apart not only in car sales, but most business sectors. Thats where his newest location claims to set itself apart from its local counterparts. Walking in to the store feels more like a spa setting than anything else; thats by design, according to Mr. Parisi. Its what youd expect to see at a day spa, he said. A number of amenities, snacks, the dcor. Volvo Cars of Naples has a fleet of loaner vehicles for those who come get their car serviced there. It not only offers new Volvo cars for sale, but preowned luxury products like Maserati, BMW and Mercedes as well as some domestic lines. Were too small of a store to have the gimmicks and the games, Mr. Parisi said, referring to other dealerships that focus more on marketing strategies. Volvo cares about whats important to you, making life less complicated. The look and feel of the store (is what sets us apart). Volvos well-known reputation for manufacturing safe, well engineered cars aligned with Mr. Parisis personal values as well as his reasoning for transitioning out of a riskier line of work in law enforcement. They care about their dealers, he said of Vo lvo. For us to do business, we need to have a product that people are willing to consider. And create a culture of service that resonates with people; Mr. Parisi believes hes accomplished just that. Its taken a lot of hard work and grit from each of our (38) employees. Theres a lot to do to maintain it, he said. Pressure is a privilege. First job? When I was 12 years old, I was hired as a bus boy at a restaurant.What would you be doing if not this?At this moment, I dont know anything else I would do; probably something in the business arena, utilizing my entrepreneurial spirit. Things you look for when hiring Character, culture, drive, commitment. When I interview people, I tell them you have to be honest and ethical, and you cant lie, cheat or steal. Favorite business book? Customers for life by Carl Sewell and Paul Brown 001 Ways to Reward Employees by Bob Nelson The Go-Giver by Bob Burg Words of wisdom? Be sincere and authentic in everything we do. Stay persistent, and keep good goals. Be truly exceptional. I always ask, are you giving the best version of yourself? To loved ones, coworkers, clients. Whether you did it right or wrong, if your intentions were real, youll be okay. Last time you fired someone? Im lucky to have a great team. If youre setting clear expectations, theyll do it to themselves. We monitor things pretty closely; we dont wait for them to do a bad job. Any job openings? Yes. Were always looking for talented individuals to join our team in a number of positions; sales, customer relations and technicians.

Wizards of the world who used their predictive device for AutoZone stock recently would have seen that the company handily beat its forecast earnings of $12.94 per share by $48 cents per share and bought the stock in anticipation of a steep rise in price. Instead, the stock tanked by almost 10 percent. So why did AutoZone fall and what can we learn about investing from this move? AutoZone is the largest seller of retail auto parts in the U.S. with over 6,000 stores across the globe. The first AutoZone opened in 1979 under the name Auto Shack but quickly had to change its name after the Tandy Corp. accused it of infringing on its Radio Shack trademark. The company went public in 1991 at $27.50 per share. By 2015, the companys stock approached $800 per share as the company expanded into 49 states as well as Mexico and Brazil. This most recent quarter for AutoZone was expected to be another very profitable one for the retailer with both revenue and earnings growing from the previous quarter. And earnings did not disappoint. A blowout quarter surpassed almost all analyst expectations. And while revenue did come in higher than the same quarter in 2017 by $40 million, it was a little less than some analysts had hoped. Yet investors were still excited by the great earnings and the stock opened the day up 7 percent. Soon after, during the earnings call discussing the quarters results, analysts realized that maybe things werent as rosy as the earnings number reflected. The companys CEO announced that he expects selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses to rise around 7 percent in the next year, mainly due to rising labor expenses. This is a very large increase in the context of a traditional retail store where margins are relatively thin. And with increased competition from online stores, Walmart and Amazon, many analysts believe that AutoZone will not be able to pass along these increased costs to consumers via higher prices. The lower-than-expected revenue and unexpected higher future labor costs painted this earnings release in a very negative light to analysts. The company tried to blame the low revenue on the weather saying, Unfortunately, we had a very cold, wet spring through March and much of April and our sales didnt respond until spring-like weather arrived in late April. Investors werent buying it and the stock dropped like a rock. The AutoZone earnings report does highlight a couple of lessons for investors in general. First, the future is always more important than the past or even the present when it comes to stock price moves. Beating an earnings consensus for the latest quarter is great, but future guidance on what is to occur usually has a much bigger impact on a stock movement. This was true for AutoZone. It had an amazing quarter, but the stock price still fell because of what the CEO said about future quarters. And second, knowledge about an industry is critical when analyzing a company. A 7 percent increase in labor costs for a growing tech company is not a big deal at all. But for a low-growth traditional retail company, it is critical. Thats why analysts focused on this part of the earnings call so closely and why it had such a sizeable move to the downside. And why I am staying far away from the stock as well.

BUSINESS NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY | A23 WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM Check your everyday reality at the door of the U.A. Whitaker College of Engineerings VIPER Laboratory and enter a world of virtual reality. In VIPER Lab, you can put on a pair of three-dimensional glasses and use a handinteraction wand to move virtual furniture around a virtual room or virtual buildings around a virtual college campus. Its virtual reality, and its a lot of fun, but its not a game. The labs acronymic name indicates that the College of Engineering is doing serious stuff with virtual reality: VIPER stands for Virtual Interactive Portal for Engineering Research. For those unfamiliar with the technology, virtual reality or VR is a computergenerated three-dimensional environment that a person can interact with and explore.

Antuan Vazquez, a graduate of Ida S. Baker High School in Cape Coral who also holds a bioengineering degree from FGCUFPL parent to buy Gulf Power for $6.475 billion NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDAIn a major move in the states utility industry, the parent company of Florida Power & Light said Monday it will buy Northwest Floridas Gulf Power as part of a $6.475 billion deal. NextEra Energy Inc. plans to buy Gulf Power, the Florida City Gas natural-gas company and ownership interests in two power plants from The Southern Company. The purchase of Gulf Power and the stakes in the power plants, which are subject to federal approval, are expected to close during the first half of 2019, while the Florida City Gas purchase is slated for the third quarter of 2018, according to a NextEra Energy announcement. The deal would expand NextEra Energys already-massive footprint in the state. Its Florida Power & Light subsidiary is by far the largest electric utility in Florida, serving nearly 5 million customers. Gulf Power, with about 450,000 customers in eight counties, is the largest utility in the Panhandle. Florida City Gas has about 110,000 residential and commercial natural-gas customers in Miami-Dade, Brevard, St. Lucie and Indian River counties. NextEra said it will buy a 100 percent ownership interest in a power plant near Cocoa known as Plant Oleander, which has contracts to sell electricity to the Florida Municipal Power Agency and Seminole Electric Cooperative. It also will buy a 65 percent stake in a generating unit, known as Stanton A, at the Stanton Energy Center complex near Orlando. The unit is jointly owned by The Southern Company, the Orlando Utilities Commission, the Kissimmee Utility Authority and the Florida Municipal Power Agency, according to information on The Southern Company website. These transactions will provide meaningful benefits for the state of Florida, and Gulf Power and Florida City Gas customers, as well as NextEra Energy shareholders, said Jim Robo, chairman and chief executive officer of NextEra Energy. NextEra Energy plans to finance the deal through the issuance of new debt, according to the announcement. The $6.475 billion total includes NextEra Energy assuming $1.4 billion of Gulf Power debt. Subsidiaries of The Southern Company, which is based in Atlanta, operate in numerous states. In addition to Gulf Power, the subsidiaries include Alabama Power, Georgia Power and Mississippi Power. The Florida Public Service Commission last year approved a settlement agreement that set base rates for Gulf Power. In the announcement, NextEra Energy said that with the addition of Gulf Power, Florida City Gas and the power plants, the Juno Beach-based company will be even better positioned to generate longterm shareholder value through a more robust financial profile, greater scale and an expanded platform for growth. But the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, which frequently intervenes in utility cases in Florida, expressed concern Monday about the purchase. While Southern Alliance for Clean Energy is still reviewing this deal, it raises concerns that any one monopoly utility would control such a significant percentage of Floridas energy market, the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy said in a prepared statemet. Such consolidation of control may limit competition at a time when we need more and not less.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Wisdom from OmahaAt Berkshire Hathaways recent annual meeting in Omaha, Nebraska, CEO Warren Buffett and his partner Charlie Munger took dozens of questions from shareholders, journalists and stock analysts over more than five hours. Here are some highlights, paraphrased: On stock buybacks: When asked about Apples plan to spend $100 billion buying back some of its stock, Buffett explained that it can make sense. (Doing so essentially retires those shares, reducing the companys total share count and making remaining shares more valuable.) Buybacks should only happen when the shares are undervalued, though, and when the companies dont have more productive uses for that money, such as reinvesting in further growth. Buffett noted that via buybacks, Berkshires 5 percent stake in Apple might grow to a 7 percent stake. On women in management: Its true that most of the managers who lead Berkshires many businesses are men, but Buffett noted that many of them had the job when their company became part of Berkshire theres little turnover. Still, about half of the new CEOs Buffett has appointed in the past several years have been women. Buffett suggested that the #metoo movement (of women coming forward about sexual harassment or abuse) will be good for the economy. He has pointed out in the past how half of the talent in America has been undertapped, and thinks that women are now more likely to have workforce opportunities. On the importance of learning: Munger opined: If youre going to live a long time, you have to keep learning what you formerly knew is never enough. So if you dont learn to constantly revise your earlier conclusions, and get better ones, you are I always use the same metaphor youre like a one-legged man in an a kicking contest. Read Buffetts enlightening annual letters to shareholders at berkshirehathaway. com. Roger Lowensteins book, Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist (Random House, $20) is an excellent read, too. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Berkshire Hathaway.) A Good Idea Isnt EnoughYou can add WebVan to my list of dumb investments. It was a great idea with an unbelievably stupid ad campaign. The company had no clue who their core audience should have been. Their advertising targeted 20-something males when they should have been looking at working moms. Stupid. Z.S., onlineThe Fool Responds: You werent alone in being disappointed with WebVan. The Wall Street Journal called it one of the most glorious flops of the dot-com-bust. The companys concept of groceries being ordered online and delivered to customers doors was exciting so much so that investors plowed more than $800 million into it, when it wasnt even profitable. The company had smart management, invested heavily in infrastructure (such as high-tech warehouse fulfillment centers), and started out serving 10 cities and regions. In the year before it went out of business, the company took in only $200,000 in top-line revenue, not bottom-line profit. The story reinforces the important lesson that a great idea isnt enough. Many great ideas never catch on sometimes because their advertising doesnt get the right message out to the right targets. Investing in unproven companies is riskier than favoring established enterprises. Interestingly, many WebVan executives ended up doing well. Some now work for, which is building out a grocery delivery business at what it hopes is the right time. A Visa to ProfitlandThe world is transitioning away from cash, with Visa (NYSE: V) likely to be a major beneficiary. The company enjoys a host of competitive advantages such as its scope. According to card payment analyst The Nilson Report, there were nearly 300 billion purchase transactions made on credit cards globally in 2017, and Visa processed more half of them. Meanwhile, the barrier to entry in the payment processing industry is exceptionally high. Not only does it take a small fortune to set up the infrastructure to process payments, but it also takes a long time for payment facilitators to build rapport with merchants and consumers. Visa expanded its geographic reach in June 2016 when it acquired Visa Europe. With much of the worlds transactions still conducted in cash, there are great growth opportunities in regions such as Africa, Southeast Asia and the Middle East. In emerging markets such as India, Visa has a head start, with its CEO recently noting that Visa had more than a 50 percent share of debit and credit card spending in the worlds second-mostpopulous nation. Finally, Visa is relatively unaffected by economic swings. Though the company does rely on purchasing to drive the processing fees it collects, its not a lender, so it doesnt have to worry about credit delinquencies. Give it some consideration. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Visa.) I trace my roots back to the 1927 opening of a root beer franchise in Washington, D.C. I was soon selling hot foods and preparing boxed lunches for airline passengers. I entered the lodging industry in 1957, launching the worlds first motor hotel in Virginia.

M.D., St. Augustine, FloridaATheyre often referred to as target-date funds and are meant to help you invest for retirement. People are often advised to hold mostly stocks when theyre young and to shift toward bonds as they age. That can be a bother, so target-date funds do it for you. Each is focused on a particular year when shareholders would be expected to retire, and its asset allocation is adjusted over time as retirement approaches. If you plan to retire around 2040, for example, you might buy into a 040 fund that will gradually shed stocks and add bonds over time. Target-date funds vary widely, though. Before investing in one, consider each candidates fees, holdings and performance. (Funds with the same target year can have different allocation mixes.) Keep your big picture in mind, too. You might invest $25,000 in a target-date fund with an 80-20 stock-bond ratio, but if you hold $100,000 in bonds separately and your retirement is 25 years away, your overall asset allocation might not be what you want or need it to be.

C.U., Erie, Pennsylv aniaAYou can deliver them to your brokerage, which can then sell them for you, or you can ask the company what transfer agent it uses and sell through the agent.

To many people, virtual reality means games such as Robo Recall, Need for Speed No Limits or Star Wars Battlefront: Rogue One X-Wing VR Mission, but to the more serious-minded, virtual reality is a technology thats becoming a powerful force in business environments, including engineering, architecture, education and medicine. One of VIPER Labs primary goals is to prepare students for this virtual reality business world. Virtual reality is the future, said lab manager Antuan Vazquez, who loves virtual reality games, but doesnt have time to play them. We want students to be able to understand how this technology is being used by those at the cutting edge in the real world. We want them to be a step ahead so theyre not training when they get to the job site. Our students are developing 3-D models, learning the basics of how to create a virtual world. We want our engineers to be able to develop virtual reality, including games. As the world goes more and more into VR, this experience will make them more employable. Among current student projects is a virtual-reality model of FGCUs campus being created by software engineering majors. The purpose of a 3-D model of the campus is, if the university wants to add a building, we can add it in 3-D to see how it looks, said Mr. Vazquez, a graduate of Ida S. Baker High School in Cape Coral who also holds a bioengineering degree from FGCU. Software engineering students are also working on a math game called Math Worm aimed at fourth graders. The game is based on the popular Temple Run, a 3-D endless running game in which the character, operated by the player, steals a golden idol from an Aztec temple and tries to escape while being chased by The Evil Demon Monkeys. In Math Worm, the avatar is riding a worm down a corridor while apples with math questions, say two times four, are flung at the worm, Mr. Vazquez said. The worm must avoid the apples with wrong answers on them and catch the apples with the right answers. As the kid gets more answers right, the speed increases, and that makes the kid faster in math. This is a long way from the old arithmetic worksheets of the pre-VR days, just as VR engineering is a long way from drafting tables and T-squares. Students from the Department of Environmental and Civil Engineering who are interested in water management and flood control, for example, could create 3-D models of coastal communities to demonstrate how storm surges from different hurricane categories would affect them. Then you could bring in policy makers and say, Hey, heres your city, and these buildings will be flooded if you dont take this action, said Mr. Vazquez. That would motivate policy makers to take action. Or, for bioengineering courses, it would be amazing to show students 3-D models of the human heart. Its hard to understand the anatomy of the heart from a 2-D picture. With a 3-D model, you can show the ventricles and valves. Mr. Vazquez hopes VIPER, which became operational in February, will have impacts beyond FGCU. A lot of things are dangerous or are unfeasible due to the cost, so you use virtual reality, he said. One of our goals is to involve companies that are already using VR or are interested in working with VR. Companies can use our facility for VR projects this equipment is very expensive, and not everybody can afford it and we hope to use resources from the community to teach our students. VIPER Lab is built around Corner Cave, a product of virtual reality innovator WorldViz (in VR-speak, CAVE is actually an acronym often lower-case except for the C for Cave Automatic Virtual Environment, and a Corner Cave is a cave that fits in the corner of a room). The Corner Cave consists of a series of projectors that project images onto walls, and a motion tracking system, a series of networked cameras that track the movements of users in real-time, so they can move within the 3-D environment. And, because sound is important to any virtual reality experience, VIPER uses a Dolby Atmos surround sound system, which produces sound in a three-dimensional space one reviewer said Dolby Atmos will allow you to hear sound in a 360-degree bubble. A virtual reality laboratory equipped with Dolby Atmos should be a big draw for potential engineering students, said Richard Behr, dean of the U.A. Whitaker School of Engineering. We have open houses every semester called Eagle Expo; we had one in February, and the VIPER lab was a big attention getter, Mr. Behr said. This state-of-the-art technology is very useful in recruitment. Mr. Behr said VIPER will have a major impact on the engineering college. It has widespread applicability in all engineering disciplines, he said. It can be used to simulate construction sites; you walk through the site in a virtual environment, and you can mitigate problems on the site during real construction. But you can also apply VR to civil engineering and environmental engineering. In bioengineering, instead of looking at a construction site, you look inside a human body. Or in environmental engineering, you can study pollution and climate change. And software engineering: The whole facility is orchestrated by software. In all, the set-up cost more than $200,000, a one-time allocation from the state in preparation for introducing a Construction Management program in the College of Engineering. Mr. Behr said that the construction management undergraduate degree program will commence at FGCU in fall 2019. Given the ongoing projects, future projects, and recruiting potential of the VIPER lab, Mr. Behr and Mr. Vazquez are obviously excited. Virtual reality is a technology thats amazing to a lot of people, Mr. Vazquez said. Its drawing a lot of attention, attracting a lot of interest. When a lot of bright minds are drawn to it, a lot of good things will come out of it. And, when we have involvement with companies and the community, a lot of cool things will be happening in this lab. But while the VIPER lab is up and running, and students are already involved with projects, there is still plenty of work to be done, Mr. Vazquez said. Putting a virtual reality lab together requires a lot of trial and error. This is bleeding-edge technology, not cutting-edge, he said. A lot of things can go wrong that you have to fix. Thats where the bleeding comes in. This story appeared in the Spring 2018 edition of FGCU 360 Magazine (, the official publication of Florida Gulf Coast University.

B4 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Second tower under construction at Kalea BayCommunitys Club Amenity Center popular with residents Just months after the successful sell out and move-ins of all developer units in Kalea Bays first tower, construction on the second tower in the gated, luxury highrise community located in North Naples is well underway. Weve had record-breaking sales in Tower 200 during the first quarter of 2018, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. To be more specific, from January to May we sold 24 residences in Tower 200 totaling more than $52 million. However, since launching sales in July 2017, we have sold more than 50 percent of all residences in the tower for a total of $120 million. Like its predecessor, Tower 200 is also 22-stories with 120 residences. Specifically, 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5 are 4-bedroom/4.5 bath plans with 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans with 3,919 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. 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. Master suites, kitchens and main living areas in most units have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features. Like the first tower, Tower 200 will also have rooftop amenities including a pool, open-air fitness center and a sky lounge. Prices in Tower 200 begin at $1.4 million. The residents of the first tower, along with their family members and friends, are already enjoying the communitys Club amenity center. It opened in early January and is now the social and recreational centerpiece of the community. The 88,000-square-foot club amenity center is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance, stated Lodge. Not only is it a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but its now the envy of every community in the Naples area. She added, Purchasers in Tower 200 can start using the club and its amenities the day they sign their contracts, affording them an unprecedented opportunity to utilize this amazing $25 million world-class amenity center. The clubhouse itself features 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, bistro, a fitness center, and lakeside fire pit. All three pools overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks and lounge chairs 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 Lodge. The indoor/outdoor restaurant serves incredible 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. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with 4 Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as eight pickleball courts. Guest suites can be reserved by members to accommodate overnight guests and are located on property. Residents also have a shuttle service that originates from the clubhouse, and takes them to the beach. For more information regarding Kalea Bay, visit the onsite sales center. It is located on Vanderbilt Drive, two-tenths of a mile north of Wiggins Pass Road.

B22 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYLondon Bay Homes Port Royal Estate is a boaters paradiseI can already picture it morning sunrises with coffee in hand ready to take on the day. The home weve been eyeing at 4395 Gordon Drive is finally complete and ready for us to take the final leap. It seems like we had just begun the journey of finding our island paradise when our friends first told us about London Bay Homes. It didnt take long before we scheduled our first visit with Toby Cloutier, sales executive for London Bay Homes. It was still under construction during our first visit but we could already see it taking shape. We were so impressed by Romanza Interior Designs selection of 36-by-36-inch honed stone flooring; sapele, anigre and wenge woods; an extra-large kitchen island with a galley sink, and a wideplank wood floor in the study. And we loved the idea that we could move in right away. No need to pick out furniture or even artwork. Romanza had selected everything, creating a clean-lined modern aesthetic that suits our personalities. The home even has three guest rooms one on the first floor and two on the second and a luxurious wine room that can house our collection. Adding to the resort-style ambience of the home on the second floor is a full morning kitchen amenable to our visiting friends and family staying in the VIP Suite. Our friends can also make themselves at home in the downstairs guest room, with its own private full bathroom and built-in wardrobe, dresser and shelves with wood and lacquer finishes. Jennifer Stevens of Romanza has truly thought of everything for the interiors. The Lighting design paints rooms in different moods, highlights art and complements the airiness of a wood and tempered glass staircase. The home also offers a large great room with two sitting areas for formal or casual gatherings. And, of course, the master suite is just spectacular. Located on the second floor, the room is designed so the bed faces a wall of glass sliding doors showcasing the cove and mangroves. I can imagine it would be the best way to wake up. It also has a large private terrace with a fireplace, and motorized shades that can be controlled from the bed. But the real selling point is the pool and spa overlooking the cove. The first time we saw the view, it took our breath away: The quiet little cove and the beautiful greens of mangroves on Keewaydin Island just across the water. Its right on Cutlass C ove, perf ect for our 29-foot boat and incredibly close to Gordon Pass and the Gulf of Mexico. And on days wed prefer a dip in the ocean without the boat, we can simply go down the street to the beach with our membership eligibility to the Cutlass Cove Club a private beach park with a tiki hut. I think well make our final decision this evening over drinks just down the street at Sea Salt on Third Stret South another perk of living so close to downtown. I really cant wait to enjoy our new life in Naples thanks to London Bay. London Bay Homes newest model at 4395 Gordon Drive in the exclusive Port Royal neighborhood is open for viewing. To jump in on this exclusive downtown opportunity, call Toby Cloutier at 239-280-7367 or visit Part of London Bays Naples Collection of homes from Park Shore to Port Royal, the 4395 Gordon Drive model showcases mesmerizing water views of Cutlass Cove and Keewaydin Island. London Bays luxurious 4395 Gordon Drive model in Port Royal is currently open for viewing, and features statement-making interiors by Romanza Interior Design and world-class architecture by Stofft Cooney Architects. ADVERTORIAL The kitchen features an oversize island with galley sink and a mix of white and high-gloss lacquer walnut cabinetry, giving it a contemporary look.

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSAppraisals are a vital part of the real estate transaction and have traditionally been done in-person by an experienced appraiser, but efforts to reduce costs, increase efficiencies and incorporate more innovation, technology and data in the valuation process are expanding the use of alternative valuation methods. Thats according to speakers at a real property valuation forum during the 2018 Realtors Legislative Meetings and Trade Expo. Traditional appraisal alternatives, like hybrid appraisals, broker price opinions and data-driven automated or desktop valuation models, can be incredibly useful and cost-effective tools. But many in the industry, including the National Association of Realtors, urge caution when waiving traditional, onsite appraisals for home purchase transactions to ensure purchases are based on sound financial principles and do not put undue risk on consumers or the market. Ernie Durbin, chief valuation officer at Clarocity Corp., a provider of residential real estate valuations services, said alternative or hybrid appraisal reports is a misnomer. Alternative or hybrid appraisal reports are simply reports with a different scope of work than a traditional report, he said. The Scope of Work rule from the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice, or USPAP, was introduced in 2006 and gives appraisers the ability to tailor each assignment appropriately for the client and circumstances. He said the scope of work for a nontraditional property valuation could include a desktop valuation that relies on third-party inspections and utilizes extraordinary assumptions, a sales comparison approach or a qualitative analysis that doesnt make adjustments to comparables. Mr. Durbin also touched on compliance and said for appraisal alternative reports to comply with minimum appraisal standards they must conform to generally accepted USPAP standards, be written and contain sufficient information and be performed by state certified or licensed appraisers. He also said appraisers bear the responsibility of compliance, and when using alternate valuation products, they must determine if the scope of work is enough to provide credible results and ensure they are in control of the appraisal process and not limited by the form or format. Mr. Durbin urged caution around alternative or hybrid appraisals, and advised using local multiple listing service data to select comparables, ensuring local appraisers have knowledge of the property type and specific market, and making certain appraisal reports and scope of work fit and are commensurate with the risk and complexity of the transaction. Hybrid appraisals and broker price opinions are going to be part of future, whether anyone likes it or not, said Mr. Durbin. Appraisers cannot let down their guard, and we must ensure that these are appropriate for the scope of work for the assignment and thats not for every transaction John Russell, of the American Society of Appraisers, agreed and said rather than simply searching for and expanding appraisal alternatives, the focus should also be on making better use of appraisers and modernizing and reinventing the traditional appraisal process, which is the gold standard. Businesses are aiming to save time and reduce costs, but you cannot toss out safety and soundness and consumer protections for the sake of the business decisions, said Mr. Russell. Julie Jones, credit risk analyst at Fannie Mae, shared insights into the enterprises decision last year to waive traditional appraisal requirements for some eligible purchase transactions through its Property Inspection Waiver program. She said Fannies property inspection waivers, or appraisal waivers, are available for mortgages and refinances that meet specific eligibility requirements, including those with lower loan-to-value ratios, single-family and condominium properties, principle residences and second homes, and when Fannie already has a prior appraisal on the property, among others. Its important to remember that the lender and borrower do not have to exercise the property inspection waiver and may continue with a traditional appraisal, said Ms. Jones. She said the number of Fannie-financed purchase loans executed with a property inspection waiver made up less than 1 percent of recent purchase transactions. Overall, for purchase transactions, limited cash out refinance transactions and cash-out refinance transactions loans with PIWs accounted for less than 12 percent of Fannies book. Lima Ekram, analyst and assistant vice president at Moodys Investor Services, said shes seen an increase in the use of appraisal alternatives in the market, which could impact the quality of the residential mortgage-backed securities they rate, where the most important thing is the collateral, or home. There are many different types of appraisal alternatives that are available in the market today, and as we assess the risk of bonds, we review them carefully and whether the use of appraisal alternatives is appropriate and that we understand the strengths and weaknesses of it, so bonds are treated as accurately as possible, said Ms. Ekram. NAR sent a letter to Federal Housing Finance director Mel Watt last fall concerning the use of automated valuations in purchase transactions. In the letter, NAR encouraged Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to use caution after they announced a waiver of physical property appraisals for lower risk purchase transactions. Additional information and resources for real estate professionals about appraisals can be found at The National Association of Realtors is Americas largest trade association, representing 1.3 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

C2-3 WGCUFind out whats on WGCU this week. C9 First-time author, 80, says age is not a destinyHeres a fact: making a living is a timeconsuming business. How many dreams have been deferred to pay the bills, raise the children and fund retirement? There is, however, the hope that once all the must-dos of adulthood have passed and necessary milestones are reached, we can circle back to the activities and pastimes that made our hearts go pitter-pat when slogging through the drudgery of stacking cash. For one Bonita Springs retiree, that time came at age 80. The dream was writing a book. After a lifetime working in the health care field and still serving as CEO of a national health care foundation, Tim Norbeck just published his first fiction book, Two Minutes. Based on the life of his childhood friend, Andrew James Purdy, who lived with a congenital heart condition and died in his 30s, Mr. Norbeck created a protagonist named Andrew James to create a fantasy narrative that continued his friends life into retirement. Growing up together in Buffalo, N.Y., Mr. Norbeck knew that Purdy always wanted to be a doctor though his health SEE AUTHOR, C5 BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ THROUGHtheThe eighth annual Camera USA exhibit offers winning photos from across the countryBY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ MYSTERIOUS GLOWING CUBE OF light in a night desert.

Call us today.800.591.3376 (DERM) Free screenings are for new patients and by appointment only.A portrait of the artist Hyejin Kim BY IVAN SELIGMANFlorida Weekly CorrespondentHyeJin Kim started playing piano at age 5 in South Korea, and has played solo and with numerous orchestras and music festivals around the world. Praised by critics for her, passionate polished and expressive, performances, Ms. Kim is one of South Koreas most thrilling young classical stars. She completed her studies in Germany, earning her MA in musical art as a Konzertexamen (highest distinction) from Berlins Hochschule fr Musik Hanns Eisler. She is currently continuing her studies at the Colburn School as an Artist Diploma with Professor Fabio Bidini. She will be in Naples for only one concert at 7:30 p.m. on June 7, at Trinity-bythe-C ove, pla ying Baroque to 21st century selections by Bach, Ravel, Schumann and Kapustin. Ms. Kim first attracted international attention at age 17 when, as its youngest participant, she won third prize in the prestigious Busoni Competition in Italy. Andrea Bonatta, the head of the jury, said, I am thrilled about her flawless musicality and technique, which promises success as an internationally recognized pianist. Since then, Ms. Kim has received numerous awards, including prizes at the 2008 Hong Kong International Piano Competition, the DAAD Prize, Steinway & Sons Advancement Award Competition and at the Toronto International Piano Competion. Ms. Kim revealed her motivations, interests and passions in a question and answer session. Q: What or who has motivated you, both as a concert pianist and as a person?A: I am inspired and motivated into music when I see magnificent landscapes such as Niagara Falls, Malibus ocean or Oregons Cannon Beach, when I visit historical places like Mozarts house in Salzburg, the Thomas Church in Leipzig where Bach used to play, when I listen good music and when I learn new repertoire. My parents are my role models for the way to live a life. Without their generosity, wisdom and their values, I would not be here where I stand, and I would be only half of the person that my parents represent. For a musical aspect, my teacher, Mr. Bidini, is one of the most inspirational and influential people in his teaching, playing and also as a human being. Q: What are some of your interests? A: I do love working out regularly, either going to gym or Pilates. It also helps my concentration and staying power for practicing time, especially for something really big like Rachmaninoffs 3rd Piano Concerto. I adored our cat Sammy and still miss her a lot. She passed away two years ago after 17 years with my family. She was the most adorable, sophisticated and educated cat ever she gave lots of loving COURTESY PHOTOInternationally recognized pianist HyeJin Kim.

Q: Can you name some of your favorite cities? A: I like Berlin, Germany, because I spent most of my 20s there, and I have lots of precious memories. I especially miss all the little streets where Id walk, and the lovely weather in summer. I like so much of Italy, especially Rome, Firenze, and Milan. Its an unbelievably amazing country with its historical basis, beautiful weather and nature, and so good food! I never had a chance to live in New York, but every time when I visit, I feel so alive. Every visit gives such a different impression of this city... I never get bored. My dream city to visit is Paris. I do love where I am right now Los Angeles. Its full of brightness and inspiration, and has a sublime nature. Q: What would you like to do next, professionally or personally? A: I love and enjoy what I am doing as a profession. Although there are many challenging moments and efforts needed behind the scenes, these are the part of my joy. The most fruitful moments are at the very end, and especially meeting the audience after the performance. This fall Ill become a new faculty member of the community school at the Colburn Conservatory of Music, where I graduate with the artist diploma degree this May. As a teacher, I would love to contribute back to the community what I have learned from my teacher, Mr. Bidini, parents and life experiences. On a personal level, I pursue the happiness, which means that I am happy when those in my community are happy because of my existence. I want to be a good part of the community and a person that gives a positive influence. That makes me the happiest. I love to cook, especially for others; I love to travel, although I havent had many chances for traveling without performing. I love to watch the sunset in the ocean and walk on the shore. Strangely enough, I still dont know how to swim after almost three years of living in Los Angeles, I guess now its time to learn swimming. Q: What are some strange things that have happened to you while traveling or in a concert? A: A minor thing sometimes there often may not be a piano available backstage for practice, so I have to be on stage with cold hands without warming up. Luckily the concerts went successfully... so maybe it is just my psychological fear. One time in Madrid, three hours before the concert, a thief stole my bag with all my ID, phone, etc. I was crying during the rehearsal it was a nightmare. Fortunately, the concert again went well. I met a Korean Embassy member there who helped me to travel back afterward. On a pleasant note, I love to travel to concertize, especially in new places. Last year I joined in the Marvo festival in Portugal. Marvo is a unique and gorgeous hill top town I enjoyed being there. I love to meet the audience after the concert, seeing them inspired or impressed by the music itself. These are the kinds of moments money cant buy, that I appreciate the most with my career. I cant wait to be in Naples to share my music making and to see some dolphins and alligators, with such beautiful weather. Tickets for the upcoming Naples show may be purchased at


C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYannounced at the opening reception held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Friday, June 1. Suggested donation for the event is $10. The winner receives a $5,000 award. Five honorary mention awards of $100 will also be given. The three jurors who determined what images would be exhibited and which of those will receive awards are Christopher Jones, associate curator of photography at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art; Mark Sloan, director and chief curator of the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston, S.C., since 1994; and Paula Tognarelli, executive director and curator of the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, Mass. According to von Liebig curator Jack OBrien, more than 200 photographers from all over the country entered the competition. This was our best turnout weve had, he says. Photographs came from as far west as California (seven entries) and Washington state (four entries) to as far east as New York City (eight entries). In the end, the jurors picked 75 different images for exhibition. Florida has a good representation, with 21 images. That includes a quirky color photo, Mermaids Dream by Marco Islander Mila Bridger, formerly of Fort Myers. Her photo shows a pair of legs in redand-white striped stockings emerging from an aqua pool. The red-and-white legs against the blue of the water and the white of the edge of the pool give it an off-beat patriotic feel. Her artists statement is one sentence: I am a photographer who manufactures fantasy. Margarita Claro, by Lisette Morales of Naples, is a portrait of a resident of East Naples. Margarita Claro is a community organizer and a Frida Kahlo researcher. The photographer asked Ms. Claro, who is of Mexican descent, if she could photograph her in her native clothing, and she agreed. She shot the image in her living room, with light coming from the window. This year we had a wonderful turnout of photographers who are concentrating on the human figure, Mr. OBrien says. And that would be a portrait, or it could be the whole figure and the environment, but the main focus of the photograph is on the human figure. Three different photographers entered photographs of boxers. The Boxer is a self-portrait by Austin, Texas, photographer Ben Tanzer. The idea was to go back to the 1920s, says Mr. OBrien. He does (self-portraits) like Cindy Sherman, though she shoots images of herself as if she were in films. Celebrating Life, another striking image, this one by Seattle photographer Constance Brinkley, is a black-andwhite photo of an older couple exuberantly dancing. She has caught the duo in a decisive moment, says Mr. OBrien, quoting the photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson: Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is a moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever. Ms. Brinkley has done this in capturing that exact moment, he says. In a second, one of them may have turned away. She captures that very decisive moment. And some photographers have done some interesting things with light. Brooklyn photographer George Underwoods Cat Joshua Tree Park shows a Siamese cat on a kitchen counter, looking out the window. The compelling image is almost monochromatic, and infused with soft light. Its Mondrian-like in its various rectangles and right angles, creating by window frames, kitchen drawers and the dark rectangle of an open microwave atop the white refrigerator. Tom Wheeler, of Palos Verdes, Calif., created an image of a glowing Lucite cube in the desert Cube #1. Hes allowing the glowing light to fill the shot with light, Mr. OBrien explains. Its a long exposure in the dark. Its minimal and compelling. You can see the sand and the stars, all that texture in those mountains, and theres a bit of a sunset. Its simple, but simplicity is not simple. Im so excited about the exhibition and the wonderful turnout we had and the amazing work the photographers created, he says.

Subject to availability. No other coupons or discounts apply. SUMMER SPECIALS JUNE-SEPTEMBERBUY 1, GET 1 HALF PRICE*: 239.649.2275 couldnt stand up to the rigors of training. In Two Minutes, however, hes an elderly internist who unwittingly becomes a national hero and a target of the FBI. In my way, this book is my attempt to give him the life he wasnt able to live, Mr. Norbeck said. I always wanted to honor him in some way, but I didnt know how, so it was percolating. And I love to write. I thought this was a great way to have him become a doctor. Even though he regularly flies around the country to speak at conferences, Mr. Norbeck is at a stage in life where he isnt required to work the nights and weekends that accommodate doctors schedules. Being a naturally selfdisciplined person, he found that sitting down to pound out some pages was easier, as finding time was no longer an obstacle. For many of us who have worked hard, its time to play golf or garden. But for the rest of us who want to pursue a passion, we can still do it. Age is just a number, not a destiny. Many of us still have some music in us. Two Minutes took two years to write, with a six-month hiatus in the middle. He made an interesting discovery or two about himself during the process. I found that when I have a small window of opportunity maybe I was a lot more creative than I thought. Some good ideas popped into my head and thats what has made me feel so good. Once word got around that he had published his first novel, retired friends felt motivated to pursue their own writing dreams. One 78-year-old friend might start on her book about online dating, another 55-year-old gym buddy might finally knock out that science fiction novel hes been sitting on for years. I would urge all my fellow senior citizens to follow your passions wherever they lead you. How many potential Oscar winners are waiting tables and never got the chance?

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYThe art of burning booksFor Ray Bradburys firemen of the future, it was a pleasure to burn. He named his prophetic novel Fahrenheit 451, claiming it was the temperature at which book paper catches fire and burns. In his futuristic world reading is illegal and firemen are called to the houses of those hiding physical books; they set those hidden, personal libraries on fire. Intellectualism is scorned and thinking is deemed dangerous. Francois Truffaut made a movie of the 1953 novel in 1966. It became a classic. And now, HBO has just released a remake, starring Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon. This renewed focus on Fahrenheit 451 has me thinking of matches, books and matchbooks. Apparently, its a pleasure for designers to create book covers with matches and matchboxes on them. The 60th anniversary edition of Bradburys novel, though five years old, is still being published and its cover, designed by Matt Owen, is simple but clever. With just two colors, black and red ink, it has an illustration of a black book. At the bottom, the black tongue of a bookmark sticks out of the white pages. At the top of that book, a box of matches has been slid out of it, revealing a row of red-tipped matches. Its a genius image, a book that is both a book and a book of matches, the very thing that will ignite it and destroy it. The cover has made me aware of other books with matchbox covers. There is Augusten Burroughss latest memoir Lust & Wonder, which is about his previous boyfriends and how he finally met the love of his life, his literary agent, Christopher Schelling. The cover, by Olga Grlic (with hand lettering by James Jacobelli) shows a photograph of a matchbox, open to display rows of wooden matches. The title and authors name are written on the cover of the matchbox with other identifying info on the sides. The cover is clean and simple: the matchbox is surrounded by glossy white, while the image is rough to the touch. It works on a variety of levels: Burroughs has finally met his match, or struck a match. And, it hints at times in the past when a person would scrawl his or her name and number on a bar matchbook when they met someone. The State of Affairs: Rethinking Infidelity, a nonfiction book by Esther Perel that was released in the fall, makes a bold image using a matchbox. The cover, by Adalis Martinez, shows a black matchbox, open at the top to reveal two matches, both with blue heads. The title and authors name are on the black of the box top; its surrounded by blood red. The image looks like a bed, with two people sleeping it in. But one is tilted towards the edge of the box, and just outside is another match leaning against it the perfect image of infidelity, using who would have thought? matches. (The paperback version of her previous book, Mating in Captivity: Unlocking Erotic Intelligence show four open matchboxes, one in each corner of the cover, looking like four beds with a couple in each one.) Another nonfiction book that came out last fall is Light the Dark: Writers on Creativity, Inspiration, and the Artistic Process by Joe Fassler. A match, with the editors name written on it, has been struck, creating a yellow cartoony light that takes up most of the book cover. On the flame are written the books title and subtitle. And on the book of matches on the lower left are names of those who contributed essays to the book. This is a visual representation of the spark of inspiration. And the hardcover and paperback versions of Michael Frayns book, Matchbox Theatre: Thirty Short Entertainments turn the cover into a matchbox itself. The paperback version (cover by M.S. Corley) looks like both a stage and a matchbox cover. Five matches stand upright, as if oldfashioned footlights. A black rectangle at the bottom of the cover gives the authors previous works (Noises Off, Copenhagen and the Book Prize-Nominated Novels Headling, Spies and Skios) but also looks like the area youd used to strike a match. But it is the books hardcover version (design by Faber) that is the most impressive and imaginative. The cover could be mistaken for a matchbox itself, the graphic design and lettering are so perfect. The hardcover book, which slides out of this wrapping, shows an illustration of a line of redtipped matches. And on the matches themselves are listed the titles of his 30 short entertainments. Its an ingenious idea, an ingenious design. I dont know what Ill think of the remake of Fahrenheit 451, but I know I want to go back and re-read the novel. Its been a while.

ESCARGOT TOO COLLECTORS CORNER scott SIMMONS Is it a compote or a comport? That is the question. Grandma always would have called any footed dish a compote. But we would not have been comporting ourselves accordingly had we corrected her. Thats even though many glassware companies listed small footed dishes as comports. Others listed them as compotes, so how can we argue? After all, a fruit compote is what is served from a footed dish, though perhaps it would be from a larger vessel than this. Homer Laughlin always called the smaller dish in its Fiesta line a sweet meat. I like that, but the term is archaic and folks might well think its a dish containing animal products of some sort, rather than mints or other candies. But the archaic and the arcane are part of the charm of antiques and anything with a history. And thats the case with pieces like the Heisey compote I recently acquired. I love these footed dishes and have them in an array of patterns. But you seldom see new versions of the dainty glass and porcelain pieces. Thats a pity. That uniqueness is part of what makes collecting antiques fascinating never mind that this or that company turned out tens of thousands of an item back in the day. That item is unique today. As for me, I like anything that I cannot buy at Target, Pier One or even Bloomingdales, for that matter. Think how fun a display of these footed dishes would be filled with candies, or Christmas ornaments, candles or whatever the season dictated? Picture them loaded with nuts at tea time one nice object can make a whole table feel special. Maybe youve wondered how someone might use a piece such as this. Now you know.

Heisey made its Twist pattern from 1928 to 1935. This piece, in the companys Moongleam color, stands about 5 inches high and would have stood on a buffet, ever ready to serve mints or nuts. Ive often said Heisey was the Cadillac of American glassware (Steuben would have been the Rolls-Royce). I think that still holds true the glass is always clear and the colors almost always are consistently radiant.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 C15 AM PM AM PM NAPLES FIRST MEDISPA MANUEL PEA, M.D.Board Certi ed Plastic Surgeon Massage Offering CONTRACT BRIDGEThe delicate art of larcenyBY STEVE BECKERAnything declarer can do to induce an error by the defense is a legitimate part of the game. Deception plays an important role in bridge, and a contract stolen by a ruse counts just as much as one fulfilled on its merits. Wests notrump overcall was unusual, showing length in both minor suits. After his initial pass, the notrump bid could hardly have its natural meaning, and so, by convention, showed interest in the minors. Souths four-spade bid was very dubious. North had passed originally and was scarcely likely to have a hand that would produce a game opposite a skimpy opening bid. West led a heart, and South noted that there were four losers two diamonds, a club and a heart. The only real chance to make the contract appeared to lie in somehow getting the defense to err. Declarer knew he had four losers, but he also knew that neither opponent could be aware of this. From the opening lead and Easts play of the queen of hearts, South could be sure that West had the jack. (If East had the Q-J, he would have played the jack, not the queen.) So South decided to capitalize on this knowledge and give West a chance to go wrong. He won the queen with the ace and drew three rounds of trump, ending in his own hand. Then he led the six of hearts.West was not anxious to take the lead, and it was difficult for him to conceive that declarer had started with the A-K-106 of hearts and would play in this fashion. So he ducked the heart, expecting East to win with the ten or king, but dummys nine won the trick. South then cashed the K-10 of hearts, discarding a diamond from dummy to finish with 11 tricks, which left West feeling very foolish indeed.

Ehrenreich doesnt have Harrison Fords boyish charm in the title role, which is a shame. Worse, though, is the labored story and murky color scheme. Rated PG-13.Deadpool 2 (Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Julian Dennison) After a horrible personal tragedy, Deadpool (Reynolds) tries to protect a young mutant (Dennison) from a futuristic soldier (Brolin) out to kill the kid. Brash and meta wit are on satisfyingly full display amidst all the action, but an underdeveloped villain makes it a weaker film than the 2016 original. Rated R.Life of the Party (Melissa McCarthy, Matt Walsh, Molly Gordon) After her husband (Walsh) leaves her, Deanna (McCarthy) returns to college where her daughter Maddie (Gordon) is a senior to get her degree. Youll think its going in predictable directions, but it is delightfully surprising and funny. Rated PG-13.RBG (Ruth Bader Ginbsurg, Gloria Steinem, Bill Clinton) The life and career of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg takes center stage in this revealing tellall documentary. We learn about RBG both personally and professionally, and by the end its hard to not have immense respect for her accomplishments. Rated PG. Truth or Dare (Lucy Hale, Tyler Posey, Sophia Ali) College seniors enjoy spring break in Mexico, but return to school cursed to play Truth or Dare; if they dont play, they die. Its a fun idea to put real life-or-death stakes on a game so many of us have played, but the filmmakers dont do quite enough with it to keep us entertained throughout. Rated PG-13.I Feel Pretty (Amy Schumer, Michelle Williams, Tom Hopper) A woman with low self esteem (Schumer) bangs her head and now views herself as beautiful, though she looks the same to the rest of the world. Its got a great message and will be a great for a group of girl friends to enjoy together, but its not consistently funny for the rest of us. Rated PG-13.Godard, Mon Amour (Louis Garrel, Stacy Martin, Berenice Bejo) The late-s personal life of famed French director Jean-Luc Godard (Garrel), including his marriage to a young actress (Martin) and social activism, is chronicled in this nudity-filled drama. Director Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) has crafted the most unflattering homage to a great director that one could imagine, to the point that Godard is easily the least likeable character in the film. As a result, theres not much to enjoy. Rated R.Avengers: Infinity War (Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Josh Brolin) The Avengers and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) unite when villainous Thanos (Brolin) tries to take over the galaxy. Be prepared for anything, MCU fans, and rest assured the action, effects, and humor are all top notch. Rated PG-13.Beirut (Jon Hamm, Rosamund Pike, Dean Norris) A U.S. diplomat (Hamm) in early s Beirut must negotiate the release of an old friend whos been taken hostage by terrorists. Its laborious to the point that you stop caring whether the hostage, diplomat, or anyone else comes out alive. Rated R.Chappaquiddick (Jason Clarke, Kate Mara, Ed Helms) In July 1969, Senator Ted Kennedy (Clarke) drives his car off a small bridge, killing passenger Mary Jo Kopechne (Mara) and putting his p olitical career in turmoil. What happened, how, and the cover up that followed makes for compelling drama that presents the information as objectively as possible. Based on a true story. Rated PG-13.The Death of Stalin (Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale, Jeffrey Tambor) Following his death in March 1953, Josef Stalins underlings scheme for control of Russia in this highly effective farce. Its silly, absurd and biting, and as darkly, morbidly funny as it aspires to be. Rated R.

Christy R., via emailA: It has not been canceled, Christy thank goodness. The fifth and final season of the hit Bravo show returns on Thursday, June 14, at 10/9c with six brand-new episodes. This season, Abby (Lisa Edelstein) is torn between an old and new love; Phoebe (Beau Garrett) flirts with a new experience and gets reacquainted with her estranged brother; Delia (Necar Zadegan) decides she wants a baby; Frumpkis returns from rehab, throwing a wrench in Jos (Alanna Ubach) new relationship with Albert; and Barbara (Retta) gets cold feet with Darrell. So, yeah, our favorite divorcees are not going quietly into that good night. Q: Is it true that Connie Britton wont be back for season two of -1-1? Marie F., Norfolk, Va.A: Connie initially signed a one-year deal with the first-responder drama and wont be a series regular for the second season. However, that doesnt mean that weve seen the last of her. Although no official announcement has been made as of this writing, she could return as a guest star. What I do know, officially, is that Jennifer Love Hewitt is joining the cast as Maddie, firefighter Bucks sister, who joins as a series regular and will portray a 911 operator. -1-1 returns to Fox this fall on Mondays at 9/8c. Speaking of Connie Britton, she will play opposite Eric Bana in Bravos new true-crime series Dirty John, which is based on Los Angeles Times reporter Christopher Goffards popular podcast of the same name. Eric plays the titular character, John Meehan, who romances Connies character, Debra Newell, a successful interior designer and single mom, who is later pulled into Johns web of lies. According to Bravo, Dirty John follows the true story of how a romance with Meehan spiraled into secrets, denial and manipulation. Connie also is an executive producer on the series, which has already been greenlighted for two seasons, the second of which will deal with an entirely different case. Readers: I reported a few months ago that ABC had canceled Tim Allens sitcom Last Man Standing, and I suggested that another network could possibly pick it up. While my guess that CMT would be said network was incorrect, the popular series has been given new life by Fox. Tim and the rest of the gang will be back for its seventh season this fall, with showrunners promising there will be minimal changes to the show that its fans know and love.

Hush Up, Sweet Charlotte opening at The Laboratory Theater of FloridaOn the heels of last years hit, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane: A Parody of the Horror, The Laboratory Theater of Florida has unveiled its next production: Hush Up, Sweet Charlotte. The production embarks on a journey to a plantation in the Old South with Charlotte Hollis, a southern belle whose only companion is her daffy but loyal maid. Her community has shunned her since the long-ago mysterious murder of her lover. Now the family home is about to be torn down, so she calls upon her cousin, Miriam, to help. It aims to be a campy parody of the 1964 horror film, Hush Hush, Sweet Charlotte, with a number of divas dressed in drag. The theaters artistic director, Annette Trossbach, is directing this show. Hush is an over-the-top, fun, parody of Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte, starring Bette Davis and Olivia de Havilland, said Ms. Trossbach. Set in the decaying mansion in Louisiana, the play deals with lovely but ostracized Charlotte (played by Brian Linthicum), who is driven to the brink of madness as she struggles to save her family home. When Cousin Miriam (play by Randall Kenneth Jones) arrives to help, Charlotte and the whole situation spin dangerously out of control. Part-time Naples resident Sue Schaffel is slated to play Agnes Moorehead, who played Velma in the original film. Hush Up, Sweet Char lotte will keep the audience laughing and hooting and hollering, all while sitting on the edge of their seats in suspense, Ms. Schaffel said, noting that this will be her first entry into the Naples theater scene. Hush Up, Sweet Char lotte plays from June 1 to July 1 at The Laboratory Theater of Florida. Performance dates are as follows: 8 p.m. on June 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 29, 30 2 p.m. on June 10, 17, 24 2 p.m. on July 1 Tickets are available to purchase on or by calling the box office at 218-0481.

Looking for a place to dine and dance? Bills on the East Trail has what youre after. Never mind the somewhat drab exterior. Theres valet parking and a thoughtful staff whose aim is to ensure guests have a great evening. Booths are most distant from the band so you might land one if you want it. Most people the night of our visit were more interested in proximity to the band and dance floor. There are no surprises on the New England-themed seafood menu, but it offers lots of choices for meat and seafood lovers. Salads were fresh and the New England clam chowder was laden with clams and potatoes. A surf and turf special included a tasty one-pound lobster, corn on the cob and a big baked potato along with the steak, which needed more seasoning. Both the wine list (bottle and glass) and cocktail menu contained a wealth of choices. And the band played almost the whole time we were there. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2016Bleu Provence, 1234 Eighth St. S., Naples; 261-8239. This bastion of fine French food and wine has only gotten better since opening in 1999. Chef Lysielle Cariot and her husband/business partner, Jacques, see to that. Count on flawless French cuisine and impeccable service, a Wine Spectator Grand Award-winning wine list (one of 88 in the world) and a sommelier and servers who enthusiastically guide you through it. House-made smoked salmon with strawberries, grapefruit and arugula sprouts was a delicious starter. A baked goat cheese salad, with julienned snow peas, radishes and walnuts in honey mustard mayonnaise dressing topped with a warm round of breaded goat cheese was equally creative. Pompano in lemon beurre blanc and rack of lamb with eggplant puree and potatoes au gratin were nightly specials worthy of the designation. And a plum tart with mandarin orange sorbet and the chocolate profiteroles were worth every calorie. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2016Jimmy Ps Butcher Shop & Cafe, 25010 Bernwood Drive, Bonita Springs; 221-7428. Jim Pepper is a thirdgeneration butcher and restaurateur specializing in prized Wagyu beef, hard-tofind heritage Berkshire pork and exotic game meats as well as less mainstream cuts of lamb and veal. This smokehouse/ caf/deli serves all-day brunch items, sandwiches, salads and more. Basic breakfast items like French toast are good, but Jimmy Ps is truly hog heaven for meat lovers. From the revelatory pea bacon to the juicy Wagyu burgers to the stellar house-cured pastrami that is amazingly fresh, tender, moist, smoky and not overwhelmed by salt or spices, Jimmy Ps is a carnivores delight. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2017KC American Bistro, Pavilion Shopping Center, 885 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples; 566-2371. KC American Bistro has a loyal following and for good reason: Chef/owner Keith Casey is talented and creative and runs a first-class restaurant thats only gotten better over time. Dishes are grouped by the region of the country from which they originate and its fun to mix and match. The Florida ceviche consisting of black grouper and yellowfin tuna with corn and bell pepper in a citrus marinade and cilantro crme fraiche was less spicy than most, but flavorful nonetheless. The Maryland blue crab souffl was full of lump crab, lightly browned and crisp on a pool of sweet corn puree. Troll king salmon encrusted in pumpkin seeds came atop a stellar sweet potato gratin and the zinfandel braised short rib was fork tender and devoid of fat, made even better by a wild mushroom veal jus. Parsnip-laced mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts were perfect accompaniments. For dessert: house-made chocolate ganache with wild berry coulis was decadently rich and just right for two. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2017Marlin Bar at Tommy Bahama, 23150 Fashion Drive, Coconut Point, Estero, 947-2203. The Marlin Bar is a casual concept by the retail fashion and restaurant chain Tommy Bahama, and its a convenient alternative for shoppers who want to take a quick break for an al fresco pick-me-up or to unwind after a day of store hopping right on the main retail strip. True to the Tommy Bahama aesthetic, there are a half-dozen rum concoctions blended with pineapple, coconut and citrus. With food prices topping out at $12, its easy to try a broad sampling of the brief menu. So-called snacks include craft beer cheese and guacamole; salads and rice bowls are topped with proteins that make them substantial enough to serve as entres; and handhelds constitute a couple of sandwiches and tacos with assorted fillings. The world famous coconut shrimp with mango-papaya chutney elevates a culinary clich, and those rice bowls are colorful, bountiful and relatively healthful. Full bar.

I can walk there; I do so often, because Im never disappointed with my choices. Its almost entirely guilt-free menu offers an array of breakfast and lunch items directed at the Naples Cyclerys continuously expanding community of cyclists. The Granny Gear is no exception; toasted French bread, roasted turkey, brie cheese and apple slices with honey mustard is the perfect mix of carbs, sweet and savory flavors for anyone just getting done with a 30-mile ride (or an 8-minute, 30-second walk from their office). The chips and salsa, which has a bit of a kick, is a nice, light side item to the heavier sandwich. I try not to get a gluten-free chocolate chip cookie every time I go, but its quite difficult, as theyre simply the best. The perfect blend of sweetness, gooey chocolate and light crunch sells itself. One More Thing: If youve been to Fit & Fuel recently, you know its going through a renovation process and operating out of a food truck. Fear not; rumor has it, the cafe is reopening its physical location in early June, with a whole lot more space and possibly some dinner offerings. Robbie Spencer ROBBIE SPENCER / FLORIDA WEEKLY

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 CUISINE REVIEWPhoenician brings Lebanese comfort fare to North NaplesOne of the trademarks of Middle Eastern restaurants at least those in which Ive dined in the Middle East and the United States is the warm hospitality with which customers regulars and first-timers alike are treated. Thats how the evening began at the Phoenician on Immokalee Road during a recent visit. The new Lebanese/Mediterranean bistro recently took over the space previously occupied by El Gaucho Inca, Freds Food, Fun & Spirits and Freds Diner. It still looks much like the stylish El Gaucho, with a change of art, of course, but the warm, dark tones and long, spacious bar remain, creating a cool, soothing space in which to dine. We were just settling in when owner Sam Charaf stopped by to introduce himself and get acquainted, telling us a bit about his background and asking about ours. It was a nice, personal touch. We ordered a Lebanese red blend from the wine menu only to find they were out of stock. Nonetheless, our young (and obviously new) server returned with a suggested replacement of equal value and like construction, offering us a taste before we decided. The 2014 Chateau Ksara Le Prieure ($45) she produced was a pleasant blend of Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvedre and Cabernet Sauvignon. Another employee, presumably a manager, appeared to instruct her in the proper way to remove the cork and pour the wine. While I think it would have been wise to school her prior to putting her out on the floor, at least he didnt leave her flailing at the table on her own. Mezza (appetizers) are thoughtfully separated into vegetarian and non-vegetarian, making it easy to choose. We opted for a mix of the two, with the Tour of Byblos mezza ($19) and the fried kibbie ($9). The former was an attractive sampler platter of vegetarian items hummus, baba ghanouj, tabouli, falafel and stuffed grape leaves. The hummus was creamy, but bland. While the chickpeas from which its made are naturally mild, this classic dip usually derives some zest from lemon and garlic, neither of which seemed evident. The tabouli was primarily chopped parsley, but it, too, seemed lacking in the other more flavorful components such as onion, mint and lemon, although it did have good-sized chunks of tomato. The grape leaves were under stuffed and what rice there was again needed more seasoning. The falafel were properly fried, moist within and had a light application of sauce on top. My favorite was the smoky baba ghanouj, a classic eggplant dip. This one has chunks of eggplant and was delicious with pieces of pita or the carrot and celery sticks that came with it. The fried kibbeh appetizer consisted of two croquettes, both crisp and full of chopped meat and onion. They were accompanied by a small saucer of sauce that resembled tzatziki, which added flavor to the somewhat mild dish. We hadnt planned to finish everything on the sampler platter, but our entrees were ready when we were about halfway through the first course. This is never OK, yet happens frequently. If servers waited to tell the kitchen to fire the order after the appetizers are at least halfway finished, this wouldnt happen. But servers dont always have the power to do that. Sometimes the kitchen simply whips through the orders as it chooses. The shrimp ghallaba ($25) was described as shrimp with assorted vegetables and special seasonings. That sounded appealing. The shellfish were good-sized and fresh. They sat upon a bed of sauted vegetables carrots, mushrooms, onions that could have used several more minutes of cooking. There was just a touch of brown sauce beneath them. While it had a rich flavor, there wasnt enough to do justice to the food above it. A large mound of rice was fine. The Phoenician mix grill ($29) contained shish kabob (lamb), shish tawook (chicken) and shish kafta (ground meat with onions and parsley formed into a cylindrical patty and grilled on a stick). Id ordered the lamb medium, but it and the other two kabobs arrived closer to well done. They came with grilled onions on the kabobs, raw onions on the side, raw tomatoes and sticks of something pink and lightly pickled I couldnt identify and forgot to ask about. The best dish was the lamb shank ($25), a large piece of meat that had been baked until it was fall-off-the-bone tender and seasoned with a harmonious blend of spices, among which I detected hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. Our server offered us a choice of four desserts, none of which are made there. I understand that. Get the basics right, then add the rest. We ordered baklava and Turkish coffee. The two squares of baklava were so hard, we could barely cut them with knife and fork. The crust was hard, not flaky, and there was no honey oozing out of the pastry, as is customary. The coffee came in a lovely decorated Turkish coffee pot, but did not resemble the Turkish coffee with which I am familiar. It had no foam on top. It had no sugar and was woefully weak. It also had no grounds in it, indicating it had been filtered, which isnt the way it is traditionally made. We left that, too. Our server realized we didnt like them, apologized and took them off the bill, which was the right thing to do. Phoenician has promise, but it also has problems. It needs a surer, bolder hand in the kitchen and a more thoroughly trained front-of-the-house staff. It has serious competition around town and will need to up its game this summer if it hopes to capture a share of the market. Considering that the family has successful restaurants in Michigan, Im hopeful the problems we experienced are simply growing pains that will pass as it gets up and running.
