Ms. Johnson, owner of the Bonita Blooms Flower Shop in Bonita Springs, can hear odd sounds in the background popping noises, concussive explosions. Theyre coming from 7,000 miles directly east of the quaint town on the Gulf Coast where she does business. He said he was calling from Iraq, he was under fire, and something made him want to go ahead and get the anniversary flowers ordered for his wife in advance, Ms. Johnson recalls.

Its not everyday you turn 60, is it? You want to have a party. You want to chortle blithely in the face of mortality, flanked by your own kind. So even though theres a hollowness to your own cheer, a sort of Oh, s**t echo that only you can hear, you make merry. My guests are a little different this year theyre dead. But that hasnt stopped them from tossing in their two cents. That old highways got my relatives/ but it cant get me/ Lord, and it cant get me, Woody Guthrie sang so donchu let it get you, he seemed to suggest. Janis Joplin just smiled. You got to get it while you can, she mutter ed. And Dylan Thomas he got mad. Rage, rage against the dying of the light, he commanded. As it turns out, everybody understands. People smile at you and talk to you as if they werent looking at a cadaver. Theyve seen this happen before. They just dont think it will happen to them. Neither did you. But 60 is twice 30, after all, and 30 used to be the top of the hill. Or was that 40? I cant remember. None of it applied to me, though. I didnt turn 30 or 40, either one, until I turned 60. Now I can cross into old age. Its a way to live. You say to yourself, transitions are for milktoasts. Go fast until you cant do anything but go slow. Of course, you have to lie to yourself to do that. Because every morning when you lift your head from the pillow and swing your legs over the side of the bed, you move a little more slowly. Youre stiff. And as time goes on, you get even stiffer. But you arent a stiff. Yet. Why not? What makes you so damn lucky that those other people who are smarter, tougher, better and bolder than you done went out of this world, and you still in it? I mentioned this to a friend of mine, Laura, in the context of the short-lived men on my fathers side I said, I hope I make it to 80 cause Ive still got a young son. She didnt miss a beat. She said, Look, Roger, 80s the new 60. Youll live until youre 100. Which is the new 80, at least in her family where the women really do live until theyre 100. Well, I dont need to take it quite that far, thank you very much. Id settle for 99. Id settle for winning the Powerball lottery, too. When I was about 10, I told my grandmother how proud I was of her for being the first one in the family who was certain to live 100 years (she still had about 25 to go, but that was nothing but a hound dog, in my opinion). I had her in that box, the centenarian box, and that settled it as far as I was concerned. I dont want to live that long, she said brightly. I wouldnt want to be 100. Ive never entirely recovered from that response from the surprise of her (what should I call it) surrender? Exhaustion? Defeat? Resignation and acceptance? But now I understand. So let me go Old Testament on you for a moment let me shout out some doubt. Who the hell invented a system in which a perfectly serviceable body and a perfectly serviceable mind begin to deteriorate almost invisibly, and then very visibly, and then completely? Who decided that flowers should wilt, anyway? It doesnt seem right. It doesnt even seem efficient. Neither does infant mortality or homicide or low-down, honky-tonk, meanassed, Dixie-whistling ignorance, either. Go figure. But somebody should have a little talking-to with the dude who did it the dude who came up with this goddamned way of doing things. Which must be exactly what my dad was thinking when he offered what Ive come to think of as his penultimate words, about 24 hours before he died of stomach cancer. It was a Dylan Thomas moment, all right. I had to get him out of his home bed suddenly, and take him to the hospital. He wasnt coming back, which I didnt know (not being 60 yet) but he probably did. So he got to his feet in pain, I put the green bathrobe over his shoulders, and he exploded. Son of a bitch, he snapped, and punched the wall. Hed been a good fighter in his youth, a middleweight, and that wall in my mothers house has been dented for 14 years, now.One thing Ive noticed and maybe you have, too: With all the wonderful stuff we have in our lives, its hard to think much about mortality, or even to recognize it until it hits you on the head. Air conditioning. Shopping malls. Nice cars. Supermarkets swollen with bounty. Movies and music at the touch of a finger. An electronic world of friends where everybody has birthdays but nobody ever dies.Jane Doe, Johnny B. Good and Jiminy Cricket all have birthdays this week. Want to send them a birthday present? Facebook prompts. But it never offers the other side of that coin to its subscribers. Imagine how helpful that would be. Jack Jones and June Smith have death days this week. Want to send them flowers? You know what Mike Royko said about the Internet (and by extension Facebook), dont you? No reason you should, so let me tell you: Its been my policy to view the Internet not as an information highway, but as an electronic asylum filled with babbling loonies.Did I mention? I joined Facebook recently. As soon as the specter of 60 approached, I became a babbling loony, too.I find it a lot of fun. There are lots of other babbling loonies. We have a good time together. For now.

If you disagree with him about gay marriage, indeed, if you merely think the federal government should continue to define marriage the traditional way while the states define it however they want, then you are a bigot. Your views deserve no political representation. They should be ground underfoot by the five mightiest and most broad-minded people in the land, presiding from their temple of rationality and tolerance at the United States Supreme Court. Kennedy wrote the majority decision striking down the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman for purposes of federal law. The decision declared a position that had been held by President Barack Obama until the day before as being a relic of barbarism, and set the predicate for the court in its wisdom, nay, in its heightened state of enlightenment to enshrine its view of marriage as the law from sea to shining sea. The majority held that DOMA inflicts an injury and indignity on gay couples so severe that it denies an essential part of the liberty protected by the Fifth Amendment. It is motivated by a bare congressional desire to harm a politically unpopular group. There is, in short, nothing to be said for it or the point of view of its supporters. Period. Full stop. In the end, Kennedy simply declares the supporters of DOMA hateful people. The members of Congress who passed the act and the president who signed it are morally no better than members of the Westboro Baptist Church who picket military funerals with their heinous God hates fags signs. Bill Clinton, apparently, despised gays. So did 342 members of the House and 85 senators. Bill Clinton now wishes he hadnt signed it. Like so many others, he changed his mind on the issue. Fine. There is nothing to stop Congress from overturning what Bill Clinton considers his mistakes. It did it with dont ask, dont tell. It could have done the same thing eventually with DOMA. But Justice Kennedy and his colleagues dont want to wait for the democratic process to play itself out, not when they have such immense power to do whatever the hell they want. Properly understood, the courts role here is minimal, and the decision could have been rendered in a sentence. To wit, as Scalia wrote, It is enough to say that the Constitution neither requires nor forbids our society to approve of same-sex marriage, much as it neither requires nor forbids us to approve of nofault divorce, polygamy or the consumption of alcohol. The court stipulated that it still permits the states, if not Congress and the president, to debate and decide the issue themselves. This is a false assurance, though. Once the high court has declared that the traditional definition is a product of irrational animus, over time it wont be allowed to stand anywhere. It is Anthony Kennedys country. We only live in it. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Like freedom? Thank a protesterMore than 160 years ago, the greatest abolitionist in U.S. history, the escaped slave Frederick Douglass, addressed the Rochester Ladies Anti-Slavery Society. Douglass asked those gathered, What, to the American slave, is your Fourth of July? His words bore repeating recently on Independence Day, as the United States asserted unprecedented authority to wage war globally, to spy on everyone, everywhere. Independence Day should serve not as a blind celebration of the government, but as a moment to reflect on the central place in our history of grass-roots democracy movements, which have preserved and expanded the rights proclaimed in the opening lines of the Declaration of Independence: Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Douglass answered his question about the Fourth of July, to those gathered abolitionists: To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciations of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade, and solemnity, are, to him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices, more shocking and bloody, than are the people of these United States, at this very hour. Douglass not only denounced the hypocrisy of slavery in a democracy, but worked diligently to build the abolitionist movement. He fought for womens suffrage as well. These were movements that have shaped the United States. The civil-rights movement of the 1950s and s set a permanent example of what can be achieved by grass-roots action, even in the face of systemic, violent repression. Today, movements continue to shape our society. The trial of George Zimmerman, accused of murdering Trayvon Martin, would not be happening now in Florida were it not for a mass movement. Sparked by the seeming official indifference to the shooting death of yet another young, African-American male, nationwide protests erupted, leading to the appointment of a special prosecutor. A month and a half after Martin was killed, Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder. Gay men and lesbians have seen sweeping changes in their legal rights, as same-sex marriages become legal in state after state, the U.S. military has dropped its official discrimination against homosexuality, and the federal Defense of Marriage Act was recently judged unconstitutional. Again, undergirding this progress are the decades of movement-building and grass-roots organizing. In Egypt, the revolution dubbed the Arab Spring continues, with mass protests forcing out President Mohamed Morsi. Where this goes now, with the military in power, is yet to be determined. As my Democracy Now! colleague, Sharif Abdel Kouddous, tweeted from the streets of Cairo on the night of the military coup, After two and a half years, Egypt just went back to square one in its post-Mubarak transition. The United States has been for well over two centuries a beacon for those around the world suffering under tyranny. But the U.S. also has been the prime global opponent of grass-roots democratic movements. Amazingly, South African President Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress were not taken off the U.S. terrorist watch list until 2008. When the people of Chile elected Salvador Allende, the U.S. backed a coup against him on Sept. 11, 1973, ushering in the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet, who murdered thousands of his own citizens, crushing dissent. Sadly, drone strikes and the U.S.-run prison at Guantanamo are not historical references; they are current crimes committed by our own government. Now, National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden, as far as we know, is stranded in the Moscow airport, his U.S passport canceled. He has admitted to revealing a vast, global surveillance regime that has outraged citizens and governments the world over. He joins in his plight imprisoned whistle-blower Bradley Manning, who faces life in prison, being court-martialed now for leaking the largest trove of classified documents in U.S. history. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has now spent more than a year cooped up in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London. These three are central to the exposure of some of the most undemocratic practices of the U.S. government. More than 100 protests were planned across the U.S. this July Fourth weekend, in opposition to the NSAs surveillance programs. These protests were part of the continuum of pro-democracy struggles around the world. In closing his Rochester, N.Y., speech, Douglass sounded an optimistic note, saying, Notwithstanding the dark picture I have this day presented, of the state of the nation, I do not despair of this country. Grass-roots justice movements are the hope, the beacon, the force that will save this country. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

Rey Pezeshkan was honored at the annual luncheon of Haz elden, the addiction tr eatment and r ecovery program, this past spring for his years of dedication to helping prevent and treat drug and alcohol addiction in our community, most notably with Drug Free Collier, whose mission is to prevent and reduce juvenile substance abuse. Rey has been involved with Drug Free Collier since its inception and currently serves on its board of directors. Drug and alcohol use among youth is at epidemic levels on the Paradise Coast. And one of the biggest barriers to effectively combating drug abuse is the state of denial on the part of parents. Kids who learn about the risks of drugs and alcohol from their parents are much less likely to use than those who do not. Consequently, many efforts of Drug Free Collier involve reaching out to parents to raise their awareness. Professionally, Rey is the founder of Naples-based PK Studios, which specializes in planning, architecture and interior design. The firm has completed hundreds of projects of all scopes and sizes, including the award-winning Stock Development communities of Ole at Lely in Naples and Paseo in Fort Myers. bobHARDEN e-mail: bob@bobharden.com PROFILES IN PARADISEA dedication to fighting drug and alcohol addiction Talking points with Rey PezeshkanMentor: My father. Something your mom was always right about: Good food cures everything. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? An aeronautical engineer. First job: In a restaurant as a high-school student. Next vacation destination: Italy One thing on your bucket list: Id like to travel around the world. Advice for kids: Surround yourself with people who make you a better person. Something thats been on your mind: All the changes in the world. What makes you laugh? Old TV shows, such as The Cosby Show and Home Improvement. Like all business in real estate development, Rey and PK Studios had to adapt to the conditions created by the great recession. The firm has shifted its focus from high-end homes to designing spaces for nonprofit organizations and the health-care industry (one recent commercial project is an addition and renovations at the David Lawrence Center, a mental-health and substanceabuse treatment center). Rey, his brother and four sisters grew up in Tehran, Iran. Rey came to the United States to study at age 14. He went to high school in Columbus, Ohio, and attended The Ohio State University, where his favorite classes were art and architectural design. He worked for an architectural firm in Fort Myers before starting his own firm in 1987. In addition to Drug Free Collier, Reys community involvement includes the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, the American Heart Association and Habitat for Humanity, among numerous others.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 11-17, 2013 making an average of $320,000 per year in retail sales in the United States. Last year, retail florists produced $34.3 billion in sales. Thats only the second time in history that florists have broken the $34 billion ceiling, according to the 2012 Floriculture Crops Summary and the U.S. Census Bureau. The first time occurred on the eve of recession, in 2006-2007. But those are just statistics. What is a florist in particular, a Gulf Coast florist? The truth of the matter is that florists are many things. They wear many hats. And they work hard, like dairy farmers, often every day and from early morning until late at night, to meet their orders. I always tell people it beats laying bridges and digging ditches, but its an awful close second, says Mark Fessenden, a Neapolitan who, with his wife, Barbara, owns Genes Fifth Avenue Florist, a thriving business they inherited from his parents, Bud and Arthea Brimmer. We throw around five-gallon buckets of water all day. Were one step away from being short-order cooks. They have to work fast because flowers dont last. Im a workaholic. I thrive on hard work Ive worked from 6 a.m. until 3 a.m. the next day to meet all the orders weve had, says Julie Perkins, who, with husband Glynn, operates Gladrich Florist in Port Charlotte. Florists spend significant portions of their days in coolers, like ice cream vendors or in other places. I clean the floors with a mop and bucket, I order flowers, I market flowers, I build the arrangements Ive done it eight hours a day for, oh my God! Fourteen years! exclaims Ms. Johnson. Her mother and father did it, after all. And now her daughter is doing it with her. Florists are also artists of the moment who work in materials that wilt, like Tibetan sand sculptors. Mr. Fessendens record for creating a single elaborate arrangement is about 25 hours thats 25 hours straight. It was a 50-foot Hatteras fishing boat mounted on top of a sea of blue flowers a life-sized memoriam for a captain who operated that boat out of Everglades City, he recalls. That was in the 1980s, back when money was almost as common as sea grass in Everglades City. It was three dimensional, and it looked like a boat on a blue sea. It had a lot of hydrangeas and spring and summer flowers in lots of colors. Youre trying to create a look but its difficult to capture the textures (of a real boat) in flowers, so you use everything. And you have to do it in a matter of hours, maybe a day or two in advance of its use. Its a last-minute production. In addition, Florists are international traders like corporate CEOs; 64 percent of their dollar volume sales have to be imported (and for you statistics junkies, 78 percent of those imports come from Colombia). And thats not all, as anybody who chats with a florist can tell you. Theyre go-to therapists of the blooming palette, theyre neighbors whom you depend on in the most important moments weddings and funerals, love days and achievement days. Or just ordinary days made extraordinary days. I have a young man whos now stationed in Afghanistan, and he calls me regularly to send flowers to his mother, says Heather Messmer, owner of Ruth Messmer Florist (Ruth was her energetic mother, who defined what it meant to be a retail florist for decades, in Lee County). And they can serve as barometers of the society and the economy, both, not to mention history itself.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 11-17, 2013 NEWS A9 FLORISTFrom page 8sury under Abraham Lincoln, a U.S. senator from Maine and a man preeminent in creating the 14th amendment. For history buffs, thats the one that guarantees due process and equal treatment for all citizens, and which outlawed the Supreme Court notion (in Dred Scott vs. Sandford, 1857) that blacks could not be United States citizens. Call it a Constitutional Flower of the first order. Or take Ms. Messmer, who can remember when flowers were not imported much they were grown here and Lee County was the epicenter of the gladiolus business in the United States. (Now, she says, only such local, longtime produce farmers as Horace Britten and his family are still growing them.) Ms. Messmer was working flowers as a girl the day Hurricane Donna came to town in 1960, devastating the area. The family was providing blooms for a wedding that got canceled, or maybe just blown away to another day. My dad had to go find dry ice I think it was over on Fowler Street, she recalls. And why? Because flowers wait for no man or florist. When youre a florist, therefore, your least favorite line of poetry was probably written by Andrew Marvel: Full many a flower is born to blush unseen, and waste its sweetness on the desert air. But not if your name is Messmer. Or Fessenden, who, like many florists, was adamant that he would not get into the business, when he was young. I remember when I said to my mom and dad, I will never be in this business. I was going to be a musician. I play trumpet and piano, and I played with everybody the Four Tops, The Temptations, Lou Rawls. Then, music became work and flowers seemed like fun. So he came back to the business. That became work too, but in a good way almost too good. We used to have six satellite stores. We did The RitzCarlton for a long time, until I decided I wanted to see my children, maybe go to a baseball game. So we decided it was too much. We were working 23 hours a day and the quality of life went to hell in a hand basket. They scaled back to Genes, and then hit a double whammy, as he puts it both a recession and a building fire that put them out of the main location for 20 months. But they beat that, too. Now, we pay attention to every day things. A lot of people think we do mostly parties and big events, but tis opposite. We do happy birthdays, anniversaries, thinking-of-yous thats our mainstay. But the Fessendens have also done parties that brought in six figures, or decorated for parties that included, say, President George Bush. And his father even got to travel to Washington, D.C., for 10 days once to help decorate the White House for a function under President Ronald Reagan. The reality is that florists have their fingers on the pulse of the culture, which continues to use flowers to express a vast range of feeling through a wide variety of circumstance and not just presidential flowerings, but economic deflowerings. The recession, for example, may have helped contribute to the decline of a customary tribute known as the boutonniere like derriere, only this one goes with a button, not a derry: flowers worn in a button hole. That, at least, is a theory proposed by Mrs. Perkins at Gladrich Florists. Boutonnieres used to be a steady standard of flower sellers, she recalls nothing like a Valentines Day or a Mothers Day bouquet, perhaps, but always dependable at graduations. Not so much now, post recession, however. And maybe thats not a bad thing, she suggests. In England, we dont do graduations that way, she points out. You would never catch our offspring wearing various flowers with clothes, except under duress. England is universally known as one of the great garden cultures of the world. Six years ago, though, the Perkins family gave up the customs of that blessed plot, that earth, that realm, that England (as Shakespeare put it) where they were born and raised, to move permanently to the Unites States and take up flowers. For good reason, too: flowers are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world, as the American Ralph Waldo Emerson said. Maybe so, but that wont matter if nobodys paying for the privilege of a ray beauty. Fortunately, somebody is, which brings out the best in our florists. Business is better than it was a couple of years ago, says Ms. Johnson at Bonita Blooms. My favorite thing about this business is being artistic and independent. For any independent flower shop now in existence, thats pretty much the only reason you do it. You can make a comfortable living but youre probably not going to get rich. I love every flower there. I cant find one I dislike thats why Im doing this. When theyre fresh and at their peak performance, each flower calls to me. Look, I did this (originally) to make my mother happy. It wasnt what I wanted to do. But now you cant drag me away from it. Its an absolute labor of love. Heather Messmer posing with and fixing flower arrangements. VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLY

July 2 26 Shes incorrigible, hissing and growling and stalking, even chasing people from the room, teeth bared and claws coming out. But only sometimes and only some people. With others, she purrs loudly and nudges gently before surrendering onto her back for a belly rub. Shes Serafina, the beautiful but bad (but only sometimes) Maine coon cat mix who showed up in a crate on the doorstep at Humane Society Naples some 245 days ago. Patricia Connell, business manager at the no-kill shelter, remembers the day well. She was fine her first day here, but on the second day her true colors started to come out, Ms. Connell says. She got spitting mad. No one could touch her. They had to toss kibble into her crate because they couldnt get near her. Michael Simonik, HSN executive director, bravely took the fiery feline home with him on a foster basis, assuming her beautiful photo in the shelter lobby and on the HSN website and Facebook page would surely lead to a permanent home in short order. Although she was mistrustful and mean to Mr. Simonik at first, the cat grew accustomed to him and the surroundings. But not to his canine housemates, who were made miserable by the temperamental interloper. Mr. Simoniks allergies also took notice, and it wasnt long before he had to bring the cat back to his workplace. Thats when Serafina took a fierce shine to Ms. Connell. She adores me. She just wants to lie on my desk all day and have me pet her which I do as much as I can, she says. For the past many months, Serafina has presided over Ms. Connells office, only occasionally wandering down the hall and into other offices (which usually results in a standoff with an unsuspecting human). Ms. Connell has never had any conflict with the cat and would be happy to take her home to her condo, but she already has a cat and Serafina despises other cats, she says. As much as she enjoys Serafina as an officemate, Ms. Connell knows the regal animal would be much happier in a real home. The Wanted poster still hangs in the HSN lobby, beseeching the right person to give her a permanent home. The infamous feline also continues as a regular presence on HSNs Facebook page and Website. Although several people have expressed an interest, no one has passed muster in a face-tofeline meeting. She stalked a boy who came in with this grandmother to meet her, Ms. Connell says. The grandmother had to stand between the two of them. Serafina has cornered a visiting Great Dane in the staff kitchen and gone after the visiting auditors when they approached Ms. Connell at her desk. (The unpredictable cat completely ignored the auditors, however, when she came upon them in another office). There are a couple of HSN staffers whose approaching voices can even provoke the cat into confrontational position. She very, very picky about who she likes, Ms. Connell says, adding no one has been able to establish a pattern in Serafinas delight/disdain for certain people over others. She gorgeous. She chirps and prances She has character. And when she likes you, shes amazing. Ms. Connell says. She deserves a real home. But not with just anyone. If you think you might understand Serafina and, perhaps more importantly, vice versa call HSN for an appointment to find out whether you pass the test. Serafina is waiting. The number is 643-1800.

SHOP TALKTaking a trip? Consider these for your packing list BY CINDY PIERCEcpierce@ oridaweekly.comIm no world traveler by any means, but I do fancy myself a pretty smart and efficient packer. As I get ready for a three-week vacation to the land of my roots in Quebec and northern New Brunswick (Canada, not New Jersey), Im determined to do it with the ubiquitous one carry-on and one personal item prescribed by the airlines these days. Of course, that mission has necessitated a bit of shopping before my departure. Here are some things that have made my short list of musthaves and that you might consider for yours, too, wherever youre headed this summer: Because I dont plan to check a bag, my one personal item has to be something I can stuff to the gills and still stuff under the seat in front of me. Im considering a couple of options. One is Longchamps iconic Pilage Travel Duffle ($155 at Saks Fifth Avenue in Waterside Shops); the other is a color-block Steve Madden bag that, even though its big, Id probably carry as a purse back here at home at least on yard sale and farmers market days ($39.99 at TJ Maxx). No matter which one personal item I end up with (see above), I need a wallet that, unlike my everyday little wristlet, wont get swallowed up in its accommodating insides. And I want one that can double as my purse once Im out of the airport and enjoying my holiday, so it must be big enough for my keys, iPhone and lipstick. A wallet/purse with detachable shoulder strap by Baggallini ($39.99 at Wilford & Lee) is just the thing. I thought I would be the first person to declare Ginger Chews ($1.79 and my new favorite thing from Trader Joes) better than gum for keeping the ears from popping during take-off and landing. Then I noticed the little airplane logo on the bag and realized the Ginger People folks are way ahead of me. By plane, train, boat or car, I love these things and will make sure my one personal item has an easily accessible pocket for them. The New Brunswick leg of this vacation includes an every-threeyears family reunion and an en masse, daylong paddling trip (37 of us at most recent count) down the Mirimichi River. Having learned my lesson the last time, this year Ill put my iPhone in a waterproof pouch before we put in. I bet Im not the only one in our clan whos shopping for such a thing. I found mine at Stein Mart ($9.99 for smart phone size; $16.99 to fit a tablet). Speaking of moisture, Neutrogena facial cleansing wipes are perfect for travelers.

Ive found. Pick up a pack of 25 for about $8 at any drug store or grocery store. Hats off to vacations and to a classic but packable fedora ($168 at The Coach Store in Waterside Shops) that will make bad-hair days a breeze. Im pretty sure the fedora trend has made it to New Brunswick; if it hasnt, Ill start it. Two weeks out from my departure, my pile of things to pack is tak-ing shape on my bedroom floor, yet I remain optimistic that I wont have to check a bag. Im not ruling out the possibility, however. So just in case, I bought a landmark luggage tag for my suitcase thats too big for the overhead bin. I picked Lady Liberty, but Stein Mart has the Eiffel Tower and Big Ben, too ($1.99 each). My luggage still has lots of miles left on it, so even if I do end up having to pack my big suitcase, at least I wont have to buy one for this trip. If I were in the market, however, Id surely consider the pieces I spied at Stein Mart. Made by Rockland, the hard plastic suitcases ($99.99 for the 28-inch model, $79.99 for the 20-incher) would make even the most trepid traveler feel at least somewhat worldly.

Coupon Expires 7/31/2013Naples Bonita Springs HEALTHY LIVINGMaking strides in modernization at NCH Two separate areas strike me as representative of our recent efforts to improve and modernize our approach to care. Focusing first on our open-heart coronary revascularization surgery program, we have maintained our top rating of three stars, due in part to our 40 percent lower-than-expected mortality. We have also recorded exceptional performance in taking patients off the respirator within 24 hours (94 percent of the time). We have also progressed in aortic value replacement, earning a two-star rating and achieving a zero for in-hospital mortality associated with the procedure. Nationwide, open-heart cardiac surgery volumes are decreasing. This is likely due to factors including the use of less invasive stents to correct clogged arteries, increased use of lipid (fat)lowering medications and overall better coordination among cardiac surgeons, invasive cardiologists (heart physicians who do cardiac catheterization and place stents) and non-invasive cardiologists (who prescribe medications and lifestyle changes to treat heart disease). With the addition of Drs. Robert Pascotto Jr. and Dennis Stapleton to the NCH Heart Institutes st aff of cardiologists, we now have a one-stop shop for patients who have heart problems. Secondly, we continue our quest to bring our entire health-care system into the digital world and were almost there. NCH was recognized as being Most Wired in 2012, due in large part to our collaboration with our information technology partner, Cerner. Through SIMON, our Secure Intelligent Medical Online Network, we will place orders electronically; deliver clinical notes digitally; share current medications instantly with patients, physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other professionals as appropriate; and discharge patients with a printed set of instructions. Under the new leadership of Dr. Tuan Nguyen as medical director of clinical informatics, our clinical communication will improve markedly as we evolve from a mix of handwritten and digital to all digital, all the time. I find it no wonder that, for the second year, Beckers Hospital Review has named NCH one of the 100 Great Community Hospitals. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. Only half of U.S. youth meet physical activity standardsOnly about half of U.S. adolescents are physically active five or more days of the week, and fewer than one in three eat fruits and vegetables daily, according to researchers at the National Institutes of Health. In a survey of youth in 39 states, NIH researchers questioned nearly 10,000 students between 11 and 16 years old about their activity levels and eating habits. They also asked the students to describe their emotional health, body image and general satisfaction with life. The students showed a surprising variability in eating patterns, said lead author Ronald J. Iannotti, of the Prevention Research Branch of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the NIH Institute in which the study was conducted. But most about 74 percent did not have a healthy pattern. Dr. Iannotti conducted the research with NICHD colleague Jing Wang. Their findings appear in the Journal of Adolescent Health. The researchers found that the adolescents diet and activity habits could be classified into three general categories. They described the first group as unhealthful. This group accounted for 26 percent of participants. The second group, classified as healthful, accounted for 27 percent. Because it was the largest group including 47 percent of participants the researchers classified the third group as typical. The analysis of the survey results showed that the typical youth were least likely to exercise five or more days each week or to eat fruits and vegetables at least once a day. They were more likely to spend time watching television, playing video games or on a computer than the healthful group, and less likely to do so than the unhealthful group. They infrequently ate fruits and vegetables but also infrequently ate sweets, chips or fries, or had soft drinks. Youth in this group were more likely than youth in the other two groups to be overweight or obese and to be dissatisfied with the appearance of their bodies. The unhealthful group consumed the most sweets, chips, french fries and soft drinks. They also were more likely than the other groups to report watching TV, playing video games and using a computer more than two hours a day. Despite the caloric foods they consumed, youth in the unhealthful group were more likely to be underweight and to report needing to put on weight. Youth in this group also were more likely to report symptoms of depression and of poor physical health, such as backaches, stomachaches, headaches or feeling dizzy. All three groups could stand to improve their health habits, Dr. Iannotti said, whether walking or biking between home and school or eating more fresh produce each day. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans children and adolescents should get one hour or more of moderate or vigorous aerobic physical activity a day, including vigorous intensity physical activity at least three days a week.

And then there is CrazyLabo in Fukuoka, Japan, which is marketing two personal-hygiene robots, available for special occasions such as parties, according to a May BBC News report. One detector, shaped as a womans kissable head, tests breath odor and responds (e.g., smells like citrus; theres an emergency taking place). The other, resembling a dog, checks a persons feet and can either cuddle up to the subject (no odor) or appear to pass out. The local council in Brunete, Spain, near Madrid, has now seen a radical drop in unscooped dog droppings after employing volunteers to find the names of derelict dogs. They then matched the dog with the towns dog registrations to obtain the owners addresses, then mailed them packages containing their dogs business (terming it lost property). Undignified deaths The man who claimed the worlds record for traveling the farthest distance on a zip line attached only to his hair was killed in April as he similarly attempted to cross the Teesta River in West Bengal, India, on a zip line. He died of a heart attack, and since observers were unclear whether his limpness was part of the performance, he hung lifeless for 45 minutes. (He was identified in news reports as a Guinness Book record-holder, but as with many such claims, the Guinness Book has no such category.) A 22-year-old man was killed in March attempting to rope-swing from the picturesque, 140-foot-high Corona Arch near Moab, Utah, trying to emulate a famous 2012 Internet video at the arch, Worlds Largest Rope Swing. This man, however, apparently overestimated the length of rope he would need to launch himself off the arch to begin his swing and crashed to the ground. Creme de la weirdYasuomi Hirai, 26, was arrested in Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, in June after being identified in news reports as the man who had crawled dozens of meters in an underground g utter solely to gain access to a particular sidewalk grate near Konan Womens University in order to look up at skirt-wearers passing over the grate. After one pedestrian, noting the pair of eyes below, summoned a police officer, Mr. Hirai scurried down the g utter and escaped, but since he had been detained several months earlier on a similar complaint, police soon seized him, and indeed, he later admitted, I have done this numerous times. PerspectiveCongress established the Interagency Working Group in 2009 to set guidelines on advertising healthy foods to children, and public comments on the guidelines are now being posted. General Mills appeared among the most alarmed by the IWG proposals, according to its comments on the Federal Trade Commission website (as disclosed by Scientific American in May). Of the 100 most commonly consumed foods and beverages in America, GM asserted, 88 would fail the IWG standards, and if everyone in America started following the health recommendations, General Mills asserts that the cost of feeding the entire nation would increase $503 billion per year.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA18 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 11-17, 2013 PET TALESSuper snifferThe most incredible thing about your dog may be his nose BY DR. MARTY BECKER AND GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickIs there anything a dog cant use his nose to figure out? Dogs have long been used to sniff out escaped cons and missing children (think bloodhounds), dinner (think spaniels, retrievers and hounds), and even truffles (think poodles). But in recent years, trainers have come up with all kinds of new ways to use a dogs extraordinary sense of smell. Here are a few you may know and a few more we bet you didnt: Drugs. Dogs can be trained to sniff out all kinds of illegal drugs, finding them not only on people but also in massive cargo containers, longhaul trucks and school lockers. Plant matter. Since fresh fruits and vegetables can carry insects and diseases that have the potential to cause great damage to agriculture, dogs are used to detect foodstuffs in the luggage of travelers coming through customs. Dogs are also used to sniff out invasive plants in fields so they can be eradicated before they take hold. Insects. Termites? No problem. Dogs are also being used to detect the resurgence of bedbugs in big cities. Mold. Its not just the mold that bedevils homeowners, but also the mold that puts the vines at wineries at risk from the spread of disease. Explosives. Meetings of important public officials would be hard to imagine without the diligent work of bombsniffing dogs. To take it a bit further, dogs are even being taught to sniff out cellphones that could be used to detonate a bomb. Cows in heat. A lot of money depends on being able to artificially inseminate a cow without wasting time guessing when shes ready. While a bull could tell, hes not always available, as his contribution usually arrives on the scene frozen. A dog can tell when the cow is most fertile, although its a good bet the dog couldnt care less. Cancer. While cancer detection is still in the trial stage, its looking pretty promising that dogs can spot a malignancy. Someday your doctor may order up a lab test and mean Labrador! Chemicals. Dogs have been known to look for items as varied as mercury and the components of potentially pirated DVDs. Theyve also been used to detect the presence of fire accelerants in cases where arson is suspected. While most of us tend to think scent work is the near-exclusive province of a handful of breeds bloodhounds, German shepherds and maybe a Labrador retriever here and there in fact, a wide range of breeds and mixes is trained to detect various scents. Because of their fine noses and friendly dispositions, beagles are used to work airports by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and any manner of mixed breeds lucky dogs pulled from shelters have been used for other kinds of detection work. Because all dogs have keen noses filled with many more scent receptors than we humans have, a dogs future doing nose work relies more on enthusiasm, reliability and trainability than on the common canine ability to tell one scent from another. Dogs are used to sniff out everything from drugs and e xplosives to counterfeit DVDs dangerous chemicals. >> Blonde Browniestar is a spayed, 4-year-old cattle dog/terrier mix. Shes about 20 pounds of sweetness.>> Bubbie Boo is a neutered, 4-yearold cockapoo who will do best in a quiet home.>> Java Jones is a neutered, 3-yearold bassett hound/ Rottweiler mix who is as affectionate and lovable as he is adorable.>> Starstruck and her littermates, all spayed/neutered and 12 weeks old, are friendly, full of fun and happy to be held.To adopt or foster a petThis weeks adoptable pets are from Brookes Legacy Animal Rescue, an all-volunteer, foster home rescue organization.

Suite 4 Naples, FL 34109239-594-5456 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 11-17, 2013 NEWS A19 THE DIVA DIARIESThe saga of building and crushing an addictionNormally, Im the sort of diva who likes to keep her missives light, refreshing and festive but alas, a somber tone is called for this week, as addiction is a terrible thing and sometimes needs to be brought out in the light and discussed. So, here goes: My name is Stephanie and I am addicted to Candy Crush Saga. For those of you lucky enough not to know about this evil, insidious, online puzzle game, I shall explain. You can play it on your smart phone, Facebook, iPad or all of the above if youre hardcore, like me. Basically, you move brightly colored candies around in a box to match three of a kind or more. Meanwhile, bizarrely enchanting circus type music plays in the background, lulling you into a trance. And whenever you make a particularly successful move, a creepy male voice rewards you by exclaiming things like DELICIOUS! or DIVINE! Candy Crush Saga starts out easy. You skate through the first few levels, but then it gets harder and harder and the more you fail to crush all the candies, the more the game denies you playing privileges (after trying and failing five times in a row, you have to wait 30 torturous minutes before trying again). This silly game is brilliant and evil all at once which is why youre seeing it all over Facebook. When I noticed that cool, interesting people whom I like were playing Candy Crush Saga, I was intrigued but not so much that I wanted to try it. What if it was a gateway game and all of the sudden, Id find myself not only crushing candy but resurrecting my online farm and playing Bejeweled Blitz every day? I have deadlines. I have events to attend. I have laundry. But then I saw that one of my most interesting and coolest friends, Asha, was playing. Asha has two teenagers. She travels. She works. She has lots of friends and interests (she even went skydiving a couple of months ago). Heck, if Asha was making time for Candy Crush Saga, then maybe I should, too, I thought. And in the back of mind, I heard my dear mothers voice: If Asha jumped off a bridge, would you jump off a bridge? I started out crushing socially just a round or three in the late afternoon. With Candy Crush, you can send your friends extra moves and such, so Asha and I would help each other out now and then. But more and more, Asha and I were begging each other for fixes. I mean, extra moves. Then it got out of control. As Asha raced through levels (there are at least 385 levels last I looked), I tried to keep up and found myself crushing candy into the wee hours, oversleeping, missing appointments and even turning down party invitations so I could stay home and crush alone. It took me three days to master level 38. I even started crushing candy in my sleep; I was having Candy Crush nightmares, often waking up in a cold sweat because I couldnt crush all the candy! As crushing candy began crushing our spirits, Asha and I started talking to each other about our shared problem. It was the first step toward finally deciding to quit together. As of this writing, I admitted to Facebook that I was quitting Candy Crush Saga. My friend Madison immediately commented on my post: But I need you to send me moves!!! I told Madison I could no longer enable her (or anyone elses) crushing. Crushing candy ruins lives well, social lives anyway. Now that weve stopped playing Candy Crush Saga, Asha and I plan on getting together next week for a glass of wine or three Divine!Dresses and dancingNow that Ive quit crushing candy, theres time for the things I really l ove, like dancing and dresses. Mark your calendars, Neapolitans: The Contemporaries young professionals group of the United Arts Council hosts Summer Tango at Mercato from 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 18. What could be more fun than learning the dance of romance while enjoying cocktails and camaraderie with likeminded, fun-loving folks who, for the most part, are under the age of 50? The dance floor will be set up in Suite 7115 near MASA. Admission is free for members of The Contemporaries and $5 for others. RSVP by e-mailing contemporaries@uaccollier.com or calling 254-8242. Then from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, July 25, head to the Goodwill Book Store on Ninth Street North for a Love That Dress! Collection Party. Just bring a new or gently used dress to donate to the PACE Center for Girls main event (coming up Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club). Youll have another chance to add a frock or two to the Love That Dress! inventory when the Pandora boutique at Mercato hosts a dress collection party from 6-9 p.m. Friday, July 26.

He missed being able to plop down on a barstool and order some local and whimsical brew. He soon developed a home-brewing hobby and earned himself a bona fide brewers education. In 2012, he started his own business: Naples Beach Brewery. Starting your own business, you need a little bit of luck, Mr. Lawson says. But you also need to be in the right place at the right time. Brewers, bartenders and beer drinkers agree, the time is ripe in Southwest Florida for that ice-cold fermented nectar, made by local hands and flavored with imagination. Artisanal microbreweries seem be gaining popularity as more locals are looking for something different to drink. Beyond variety, local beers are fresh. When you drink a beer from a thousand miles away, somebody has added something to that beer to Craft beer makers work to keep up with growing demandSEE BREWS, B5 some l o c ho ho me-b r b r ew w ers ness: Na N p S ta a rt r i l uc k M M r ri gh t pl a a Br ew e e time is f ermen te e wit h i ma a g ainin g someth in n beer s ar e e W he e n aw ay so o m Growth of the craft brewing industry in 2012 was 15 percent by volume and 17 percent by dollars compared to growth in 2011 of 13 percent by volume and 15 percent by dollars.

Unemployment of 6 percent is not an arbitrary objective; it is the level specified by the Federal Reserve needed before the agency will reverse many of its aggressive monetary actions. It is widely held that, to reduce unemployment, gross domestic product, the broadest measure of economic health, must grow at 2.5 percent or better. To reduce high and persistent levels of unemployment, such as we have, GDP needs growth in the 3-3.5 percent range. How is the U.S. economic health? The GDPs most recent annualized growth rate for first quarter 2013 was released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis on June 26. It was an anemic 1.8 percent. This is the second of two downward revisions by the BEA as the first estimate was 2.5 percent and the first revision was 2.4 percent. As Bill Gross pointed out in his June letter to investors titled Wounded Heart, its been five years and the real economy has not once over a 12-month period of time grown faster than 2.5 percent. Unquestionably, the U.S. economy is slowing. Unquestionably, many of the initial estimates of GDP growth are pie in the sky and are subsequently lowered. How is U.S. unemployment faring? As reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics at the end of June, the national rate is currently 7.6 percent. It is unchanged from Mays level and remains in the 7 percent range for the past 10 months despite aggressive monetary policy that has been broadened and deepened over the past 10 months. Otherwise, we would be in worse shape. Unemployment peaked at 10.2 percent in October 2009. Seemingly, there has been progress except that the decline in unemployment likely overstates the recovery in jobs. The decline in the past nine months is partly attributable to the decrease in the number of people counted as unemployed. Some unemployed people have given up in their search for a job and are no longer included in the unemployed count. So next time you hear there has been a decrease in unemployment, consider that reality might be that there have been dropouts from the unemployed list. Such decreases in the size of the employment base points to a loss of U.S. productivity and lower national earned income levels (because the dropouts are not gainfully employed.) So, back to the original question, how will GDP grow at rates better than 2.5 percent to get unemployment to 6 percent and lower? Short answer: It needs to come from the business sector, not from the government or consumption, etc.? Take a look at the core equation: GDP= C+I+G+ NX. The four components are: C for consumption; I for business investment; G for government spending; and X for net exports. Consumption accounts for a whopping 72 percent of GDP; government spending 20 percent; business investment 14 percent and, as the U.S. is a net importer, our net exports is a negative 6 percent and a drag on GDP. GDP grows if, on a net basis, there is growth in the sum of the components. But not all spending (consumption versus business versus government versus foreign buyers of our goods) is the same. Government expenditures include social payments (unemployment compensation, Medicare, Medicaid, Medicaid and Social Security) and special make work programs e.g., census hiring. This spending adds no productive capacity nor does it create a more highly trained work force. Government spending has little multiplier effect on the U.S. economic system. (However, IF the government spending was for capital, infrastructure improvements or even education that results in higher-tiered engineers with skills equal or exceeding talent offered overseas, then the governments spending would have added to the productive capacity of the U.S. A look at the GDP components individually suggests that 3.5 percent growth in GDP; we are at 1.8 percent and facing headwinds. First, even if consumers do buy more stuff, their buying is not an investment in our economy it is just more stuff they own. Second, the U.S. government is already under sequestration cuts, with more budget cuts coming this summer and more coming in the fall. Third, the recent rise in the dollar hurts our competitive position in exporting and whatever advantage we had seems to be diminishing under Japans recent forced currency devaluation. The only meaningful hope the U.S. has for truly returning to a strong, vibrant economy lies with business investment, which is impeded by higher taxation and increased government regulation. Business investment is the only vehicle at this juncture that can create meaningful GDP growth as it creates the multiplier effect. How so? For example, a business buys equipment or builds a plant, then it hires people to make stuff with the equipment in the plant; and then the newly employed spend money on consumer stuff. This makes for sustainable growth in GDP. There is no way of getting away from the GDP equation; it is what it is.The non-financial sector of corporate America is highly capable of finding its way out of this low-growth hole. Despite such economic prognosis for the U.S., our elected officials cannot stop bickering and are unwilling to find common ground. Whether they hail from the far left or far right, until they get their heads in the game, we will likely continue to stumble along with sub-par growth.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Dont Over-ConcentrateIts good to be focused, but when it comes to parking your hard-earned dollars in stocks, dont put too many eggs in too few baskets. Here are a few ways that we investors fall short of effective diversification: (1) Owning too much company stock of our employer. The benefits of owning our company stock often include the ability to purchase it at a discount and to be able to easily dollar-cost average into the position. Employees also tend to know a lot about their company and industry, which can give them an edge. Nevertheless, too much of a good thing is still too much. Enron serves as a classic example of how owning company stock can go horribly wrong. Remember that you already depend on your employer for your income. Its kind of risky to depend on it for the bulk of your investments, too. (2) Investing too heavily in an industry with which we are very familiar. Industry knowledge can give us a leg up, but this familiarity fuels a common pitfall, too. For example, its enticing for an orthopedic surgeon to load up on shares of a medical device company that enables surgeons to perform knee and hip replacements, if the good doctor strongly believes in its products. But if either the sector suffers or the technology falters, then the portfolio shrinks. (3) Not selling our stock winners to avoid Uncle Sam. Its common to avoid selling a winning stock to delay having to pay taxes on the gains. But this can threaten our portfolios performance. If you doubled or tripled your money in a particular stock over some years, that stock may have come to represent a big chunk of your portfolio meaning that if it takes a tumble, so will your nest egg. Over time, unsold winners can dominate your portfolio and increase your risk. A good rule of thumb is to try not to let any holding come to make up more than, say, 5 percent of your overall net worth. The Short StoryYears ago, I bought stock in a company that my girlfriend worked for. I had been watching it and thought it was undervalued at $34 per share. So I bought about $5,000 worth. As I had hoped, it soon made a modest gain. Then rumors arose that the company would not meet its third-quarter projections and that the stock was expected to fall. Well, I sold and made a little profit. Two days later it was announced that the company was going to be acquired, and its stock rose to $60. It goes to show that if you believe in a company, stick with it. Day-trading or short-term trading is no longer an option for me. I will focus on the long term when it comes to solid companies. R.A., Tucson, Ariz.The Fool Responds: Youre right. Lots of great companies encounter occasional hiccups. Its often best to hang on, as long as you retain long-term faith in their future especially if you consider them undervalued. Rumors can be dangerous, too, as they wont necessarily come to pass. Strong stocks tend to rise over time. Power UpFluor (NYSE: FLR) offers engineering, procurement, construction, maintenance and project management services globally, serving the oil-and-gas, power, infrastructure and government markets, among others. Its recent growth has been sluggish, but its future seems bright. Some have worried about the U.S. governments sequester-caused budget cuts, which could hurt future orders for Fluors services from the Department of Energy or Defense. Despite that, Fluors ties to the private energy and independent oil-and-gas sector make it a very attractive bet over the long run. President Obama has made it clear that hed like to see America become more energy independent. This will likely result in the construction of new drilling rigs as well as more energyefficient power plants, and also more pipeline and storage tanks capable of holding an increasing number of natural gas and oil finds. Fluors bread-andbutter business is these energy and oiland-gas projects. In just the last quarter alone, Fluor received $6.5 billion in awards with $3.1 billion coming from the oil-and-gas sector and its total backlog rose 11 percent to $18.6 billion. With a forward-looking price-toearnings (P/E) ratio of about 13, Fluors stock seems fairly to attractively priced and should reward long-term investors. More risk-averse sorts might wait and hope for a pullback in price. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Fluor.)

While he underscores that too much of anything including beer can be a bad thing, the head Naples Beach brewer promotes the healing power of local brews, We dont filter or pasteurize our beer, which means there is a small amount of yeast remaining in our finished product. Brewers yeast contains vitamins, minerals and probiotics which are beneficial to digestive health. Thus far Mr. Lawsons brewery boasts a Naples Beach Weizen, American Pale Ale, Black IPA, Rojo Especial and Mango Ginger Tripel. His pint glasses are emblazoned, The sunshine was already here we just make the beer. He currently sells around 30 kegs a week to retailers in Naples and hes looking to expand his Fort Myers accounts. Austin Schmelzer, product manager for World of Beer at the Bell Tower Shops, says he got the Naples Beach Pale Ale in on a Monday. He hooked it up to his line of 51 draft beers on Tuesday. Come Wednesday, the keg was almost empty, before he even had a chance to list the beer on his menu. People come in and ask, What do you have thats local? Mr. Schmelzer says. Soon as we get a local brew, its gone. Mr. Schmelzer says he cant keep Fort Myers Brewing Company craft beers in stock. Soon as he gets a batch of the brewerys Gateway Gold, Tamiami Tan or City of Palms Pale Ale, those suds sell out fast. Their Cypress Strong is probably my favorite, Mr. Schmelzer says of Fort Myers Brewing Company ales. Its got a nice caramel finish to it Their Caloosahatchee Kolsch is real light and refreshing. Its got a grassy taste to it.Evolving tastesWorld of Beer Fort Myers will celebrate its two-year anniversary in August. Mr. Schmelzer has been there since the beginning. Watching the change in taste buds over the years, he says, People drink the most obscure stuff now, when a year ago, they stuck to the basics. Mr. Schmelzer has seen mainstream tastes move from bland to daring, as more and more of his patrons are experimenting with chocolate stouts, peanut butter ales and blueberry wheats. Theres always something out there youll like. Dont stop at the first one you find, he says, making craft beer tasting sound like the world of dating. Marco Island Brewery bar manager Marco Magdalener says he only used to drink Bud Light and Miller Lite, but since hes been bartending at the familyrun pub, he cant remember the last time he drank a domestic beer. People want to drink something other than watered-down Bud Light, says Mr. Magdalener, who now fancies Pitch Black IPA. Marco Island Brewery quotes Benjamin Franklin on its website: Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. And Plato: He was a wise man who invented beer. The bar brews four in-house craft beers: Loggerhead Red, named for the turtle; Tigertail Ale, named for the beach; Horrs Island Hefeweizen, named for the small island off of Marco; and The Rock IPA, fitting as locals have forever called Marco Island, The Rock. Curious drinkers can try out a flight: 4-ounce servings of four different beers. One of this and one of that, it never gets boring, says Jamie Shea, general manger. Her dad owns the bar. Her brother brews the beer. When we first opened, people laughed at us and said, This is a Bud Light island. Thats all anybody drinks here, says Ms. Shea, remembering back to 2010. But now so many people come in to try so many different beers Its funny, when you go to other places, they all have craft beers now. I kind of feel like we brought a little bit of that to the island. Daryl Fry, general manager of the English-style IceHouse Pub, has equally been impressed with the reception of craft beer up in Punta Gorda. He knew sales would be good during season, saying, A lot of people from up North, they want to try stuff from here when theyre here. They dont want to come down here and drink the same beers they drink up North. They like to drink more of the local stuff. Im the same way. Whenever I go anywhere, I want to drink local beer. Some people come in and ask, Why dont you have any American beer? Mr. Fry says. Soon as you point out the fact that most of them are American, they cant get enough. Other local drinkers may be a little wary of trying something theyve never heard of. While they may be intimidated by the list of 25 craft beers on draft at the IceHouse, as soon they try one, Mr. Fry says they come around to his way of thinking: Smaller batches yield better beer. b a r a s M ar c Br ew er y b s w s n IP qu l i n s t n BREWSFrom page 1 Will Lawson at Naples Beach Brewery Daryl Fry at IceHouse Pub Austin Schmelzer at World of Beer

I shook my head and said uncertainly, I dont think Im familiar with her work. The woman gave me such a withering look that I thought the flowers on the table would wilt. Youve never heard of Marilynne Robinson? she said. Shes only the greatest living American female writer. I blushed and turned away, duly chastised. That chastisement sat heavily with me for an entire year, and I often wondered about Marilynne Robinson. Finally I purchased Gilead, the novel that won her the Pulitzer, and I set to it cautiously, fully expecting the book like so many talked-about thingsto be a disappointment. What a surprise and delight to discover it was every bit as good as it was reputed to be. The story is told from the perspective of John Ames, an aged, ailing pastor who narrates the book as a letter to his young son. We learn over the course of the story that Mr. Ames was married young, but that his wife died in childbirth along with their baby. He spent the next 30-odd years living alone, tending to his church flock, never daring to hope for the wife and son that would come into his life during his final years. The books beauty lies in the gentleness John Ames brings to the narration, the way he describes his long stretch of solitude with peace and faith. Im very grateful for whatever reluctance it was that kept me alone until your mother came, he says to his son. Now that I look back, it seems to me that in all that deep darkness a miracle was preparing. So I am right to remember it as a blessed time, and myself as waiting in confidence, even if I had no idea what I was waiting for. I find this idea striking. We have all experienced dark passages of the heart, lengths of time when we thought we might be alone forever. And when that loneliness ended as it always does werent we all the more grateful for having known the bleak period that preceded it? I spoke yesterday with my friend Philip, a man who spent most of the last two years single. Philip is boyishly handsome, kind and genuine. Wed go out for drinks and hed tell me about his latest dating disappointment, shaking his head and looking utterly dejected. It feels like Ill never find anyone, hed say each time we met. Id pat his hand and smile reassuringly. Youre a good catch, Id say. Shes out there. Just keep looking. He did keep looking and now hes found her. Hes been dating a young woman for almost a year, and when we spoke, he told me he had just said I love you. She said I love you back. I could feel his happiness radiate across the phone line, and I wondered if he even remembers those long nights when he was convinced hed never be happy again. I like to think he has forgotten and that the brightness of this new love has eclipsed those dark times. I would wish the same for all of us.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 11-17, 2013 negative reviews. Why not? Wouldnt a balance of negative and positive reviews give my work more credibility? Perhaps it would. But I dont care. I dont have enough space to tell you what not to read or why you wont like something. Besides, if a book is inferior, it will sink under its own weighty badness it doesnt need my help. Silence can be a good thing. Many writers, especially novices, do not understand my refusal to write reviews of their efforts. My Florida Weekly Florida Writers column brings me a lot of e-mail from authors (and publicists) whose attempts at gaining my respectful attention are so poorly scribed that I can only imagine how bad the actual book is. Still, if I see any hope of being able to praise it, Ill ask for a copy (or a pdf or an e-version). Too often, I end up not reviewing the book, hoping to cast my refusal so that it doesnt do unnecessary harm. But Im a Florida Writer. Why not? It is not true, I insist, that all publicity is good publicity. Why find yourself insulted by my honest appraisal? However, I understand that the author of this question cannot imagine that his book could garner negative reviews. I pretend to agree that the problem is simple: Theres something wrong with me. But youre the only person doing regular book reviewing around here. If you dont help me get the word out, no one else will either. Sure, I feel guilty. However, book reviewing is not public relations work; or at least it shouldnt be. (You want a planted, paid-for review? Ill tell you how to buy one.) In case youre dying to know the exception to my rule about not writing negative reviews, here it is: I will write a negative review when a well-established, talented author slips from the standard that he or she has set and that readers expect. Heres a case in point:Though I love Randy Wayne Whites work, a couple of Doc Fords ago I thought he had let us down and said so. Fortunately, I was soon able (and happy) to praise his first Hannah Smith novel and the most recent Doc Ford addition. Confess, Phil confess that sometimes you do not review a book that you know is pretty good. Whats the deal here? Laziness? Sometimes Im lazy, but more often I just dont think that the book and I are compatible. I cant get excited about its virtues. I need to move on to another book that engages me more fully or that I feel will be of value to my readers. I dont have time to agonize about the one that gets away. Again, my publication space and reading-writing time is limited. Careful selection is what gets me through. Its like dating. Why do you review so many selfpublished books? Arent they bound to be just awful? Hey, you snobs out there, with all the mediocre books put out by the trade houses, the burgeoning body of self-published titles offers a truly viable alternative for the serious reviewer looking for quality publications. I dont let the publishing industry make up my mind for me, and Im prejudiced against prejudices. While there are many periodicals that refuse to publish reviews of self-published titles, Florida Weekly has allowed me the privilege of deciding by the case and not the category.How come you write almost exclusively about books by Florida writers? First of all, its convenient. It eliminates so many books that I dont have to worry about! Second, Florida is a very populace state with scads of authors turning out good work. Thus, I still have plenty to choose from. Finally, I value the slogan all news is local, at least to the extent that a local newspaper (or one that covers various markets across a state) should pay special attention to local authors, just as it does to local theater, art and musical performance. Heres another answer: I dont write almost exclusively about books by Florida writers. My opportunities to review in the Washington Independent Review of Books, Southern Literary Review, Jewish Book World and several other publications allow me to sample and respond to a much wider sweep of book publication. How do you keep up with whats going on in the world of book publishing? I dont do anything remarkable. I follow Publishers Weekly and the New York Times Book Review. I use the search boxes on amazon. com and bn.com, filling them in with topics (Florida fiction) rather than titles or names of authors. I look for timely (daily, if possible) book industry information from Internet sources. My most recent discovery is shelf-awareness.com, which puts out two e-mail editions each day, one for the avid general reader and another for people involved in some way in the book trade (like reviewers). Beyond this, Im bombarded by press releases from publishers and publicists, book catalogues and frantic pleas. My normal interaction with authors (e-mail conversations) supplies an endless stream of information. Who are your favorite Florida authors? My favorite old-timer (though hes probably younger than I am) is James W. Hall, a fine poet whose Thorn mysteries are incomparable. No one captures Florida as a cultural swamp more elegantly and provocatively. My favorite (relative) youngster is Lisa Unger, whose psychological thrillers are deeply chilling and chillingly deep. I always enjoy new works by Mary Anna Evans and Les Standiford. And though he only lives here part of the year, Michael Connelly is a master. Id better stop. The longer the list, the more people not on it will be dismayed. Read new titles by any of these fine writers to get you through the summer. Why dont more publications offer book reviews? Ill come clean. No one ever asks me about the death of newspaper book review sections and the shrinking opportunities that writers have to receive commentary on their published works. The unfortunate answer is that you, dear reader, are not demanding more book reviews. And if you do, the periodical you harass is likely to pay for syndicated material that you can easily find on the Internet. Because Florida Weekly allows my column to exist, there is one more voice in a shrinking chorus. Almost final questions that have the s ame ans w er: How many book reviews have you written? or How many books do you read in a week? As it says on my other favorite T-shirt: English Major You Do The Math. How do you feel about traditional printed books versus e-books? Great topic. Ill answer it, Florida Weekly willing, on another occasion. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.BOOKSFrom page 1 If you dout m ite, i s rt t t pu bo com e v e the pe r tion s oppo ersh e t s t o d VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLY

IN THE ARTISTS STUDIOMary Mariner remembers the Naples Art Association from earlier days when she and her husband began travelling here as seasonal residents in 1992. One of the first things she did was to seek out the art community. She wanted a place to learn and create art and a place to meet others with similar passions. She found the NAA and has been a member ever since. With her newfound dedicated community of fellow artists, she explored new creative territory and just two years later decided shed like to live here permanently. High on her list of priorities for her new home was a place with great studio space. She found a townhouse with a 500-square-foot working art studio flooded with natural light. Today that space is filled with her artwork as is every other room in the house. Art makes me happy, she says. Over the years, Ms. Mariner has helped bring in travelling artists to teach workshops and also taught classes herself for the NAA at The Naples Depot. She has exhibited in numerous Art in the Park events as well as in NAA Members Gallery shows and the Naples National Art Festival. Art has always been a part of Ms. Mariners life, though it hasnt always taken a front seat. She took some time after college to focus on raising her three children. As soon as she could, she sought out opportunities to start creating art again. Recently, she is coming off of a seven-year break, and is excited about getting back into her studio. She describes her painting as experimental art. She started out working in oil painting, then later on with watercolor and charcoal techniques. No matter which medium, she allows herself to be absorbed by the colors and emotions of her art. She builds on a piece, adding a fleck of light here and playing with texture. Sometimes amazing things happen! she says. Kathleen Taylor is director of marketing and public relations for the Naples Art Association.Art moves into the front seat again for longtime NAA memberBY KATHLEEN TAYLORSpecial to Florida Weekly COURTESY PHOTOMary Mariner in her home studio

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) The workweek keeps you busy tying up loose ends and checking data that needs to be verified. The weekend offers a chance to relax and restore your spent energies.

Is it worth $15? (3D) No Is it worth $10? YesOh, those crazy little minions. The little yellow French toast sticks were the highlight of Despicable Me in 2010, and now in Despicable Me 2 theyre delightfully showcased in ever creative ways. Not bad for supporting characters who only speak gibberish. Thankfully, the rest of Despicable Me 2, cookie-cutter clean and simple as it is, is enjoyable as well. Reformed uber-villain Gru (Steve Carell), now a father of three girls who want him to start dating, is called into action by the Anti-Villain League when it needs help finding a deadly serum. Gru doesnt initially commit, citing a number of projects of his own, but after his scientist Dr. Nefario (Russell Brand) quits, Gru takes the job. If he didnt, there wouldnt be a movie. Grus partner is secret agent Lucy Wilde (Kristen Wiig), who can hold her own in a fight and kinda sorta has a crush on him. They flirt often and work well together, while silly montages featuring the minions keep all of it from being taken seriously. After learning the serum is at the local mall, Gru becomes convinced its in the possession of Mexican restaurant owner Eduardo (Benjamin Bratt), who bears a striking resemblance to the presumed-dead villain El Macho, whom Gru knew years earlier. Making things more complicated is the overly protective Gru not approving of the attraction between his oldest daughter Margo (Miranda Cosgrove) and Eduardos son (Moises Arias). Unlike other animated fare aimed at both children and adults, Despicable Me 2 is strictly for kids. The screenplay by Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul packs in Gru dressed as a fairy princess, guacamole hats and wild Cinco de Mayo dancing to keep the kids chuckling, all of which is in addition to the zany minion antics of singing YMCA and lounging on a beach. Judging by the youngsters seated near me who couldnt stop giggling and my own amusement as well the movie is an entertaining success. It is not, however, something that needs to be seen in 3D. The animation by directors Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud is adequate but not impressive (Monsters University, by comparison, looks notably better), and the 3D is used as a gimmick rather than a technique that enhances the story. Its fun to see Grus oversized nose and various objects breaking the fourth wall into your face, but at no point does the depth on the screen add to the emotion or substance of any kind. This makes the 3D merely a cheap thrill; for the jacked-up prices, it should offer more. The ending is a bit weak, but not so much that it feels like a letdown. And by the time the minions come on screen for the cookie credits and effectively leave the audience with a positive impression of the movie, all else is forgiven. Despicable Me 2 is not remarkable in any way, but it does entertain on a childish, silly level and theres something to be said for doing that successfully.

Bill Colletti Fri. & Sat. Lynn Carroll FILM CAPSULESThe Lone Ranger 1/2 (Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, Helena Bonham Carter) Lawman John Reid (Hammer) teams with a Comanche named Tonto (Depp) to avenge the death of Reids brother (James Badge Dale). Its bloated at 149 minutes, but a rousing finale is its savior. Still, bring patience and dont expect much. Rated PG-13.White House Down (Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx, James Woods) A policeman (Tatum) who wants to be a Secret Service agent is the only person who can save the president (Foxx) after terrorists attack the White House. It could be a bit tighter, but on the whole, it delivers the action and suspense we expect. Rated PG-13.The Bling Ring (Emma Watson, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang) Based on real events, this intriguing look at teen culture from director Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation) follows a group of entitled teenagers who rob the homes of B-list celebrities. The movie works because most of it is an insightful look at how (some) modern teenagers view the world, but Mr. Coppola also misses a few opportunities to be truly daring. Rated R. Monsters University 1/2 (Voices of Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi) Pixars latest takes us back in time to Mike (Crystal) and Sully (Goodman) during their college days, in which Mike wants to be a scarer and Sully refuses to study. There are amusing moments and the kids will get a kick out of it, but the plot is by-thebook in terms of college-based stories. Rated G.World War Z (Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz) With a global pandemic turning people into zombies, former U.N. investigator Gerry Lane (Pitt) tries to find the source of the disease. A so-so action movie devoid of humanistic themes (a la The Walking Dead), its full of mediocre visual effects and an unsatisfying story. Rated PG-13.Man of Steel (Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon) Clark/Superman (Cavill), after being sent to earth by his father (Russell Crowe) prior to the destruction of their home planet of Krypton, discovers that surviving Kryptonian General Zod (Shannon) is planning to destroy earth. The action is strong and it looks great; too bad the story is burdened with surplus: too many characters, too little development. Rated PG-13. NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC12 A&E WEEK OF JULY 11-17, 2013

Rated R.The Internship (Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, Rose Byrne) Two middle-aged failed watch salesman (Vaughn and Wilson) talk their way into an internship at Google, though they know nothing about technology. Its amusing in spurts and fun to see the real Google campus, but it goes through too many dry spells and is woefully predictable. Rated PG-13.The Reluctant Fundamentalist 1/2 (Riz Ahmed, Liev Schreiber, Kate Hudson) Pakistani-born and Princetoneducated Changez (Ahmed) has success in New York City, but racial profiling after 9/11 makes it hard to live in America. Strong performances and a nicely crafted story from director Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding) make this a must-see. Rated R.Fast & Furious 6 1/2 (Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Luke Evans) Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) convinces Dom (Diesel) and Brian (Walker) to help him track a quick-strike rogue military bad guy (Evans). There are some notable lulls, but the action is exciting and its a worthy installment for the franchise. Rated PG-13.The Purge (Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Rhys Wakefield) In 2022, Americans are free to commit any crime they want during a 12-hour period. Trouble abounds when a family of four (led by Hawke and Headey) must fight off intruders. Its an interesting idea, but the execution is little more than typical home-invasion silliness. Rated R.The Hangover Part III 1/2(Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong) A gangster (John Goodman) forces the Wolfpack to find Mr. Chow (Jeong). Its an unfunny and unnecessary third wheel that proves writer/director Todd Phillips has long since run out of ideas for these characters. Rated R.Epic (Voices of Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Christoph Waltz) A teenage girl (Seyfried) is shrunk down and thrust in the middle of a battle between those who wish to protect the forest and those who want to destroy it. The animation looks terrible and the story is a bore.

Trim and Tone SpaWhere Technology Meets Beauty. $300 value Bedside toilets turned into elegant storageA small table next to the bed is necessary today to hold a lamp, cellphone, clock and perhaps a book, eyeglasses and tissues. But in past centuries the table might have held a candlestick with a handle to carry to the bedroom for light. It also had to store items that acted as the toilets of the day. The potty, a large round but squat bowl, served as the toilet seat. A large, tall bowl with a cover was used to hold waste until morning. Covered sections of the table held and hid everything, so the bedside table really was a commode. But only the wealthy and royalty had such luxurious equipment. Most people had an outhouse near the back of the yard. The flush toilet is older than most people think. Leonardo da Vinci designed a flush toilet, but it was never made and people thought the idea was as ridiculous as another one of his ideas, the airplane. The first flushing toilet was made by Sir John Harrington for the Queen of England in 1596. It was improved in 1775 by Alexander Cummings, and soon the water closet made of porcelain was installed in homes in a special room. Although theyre no longer needed, antique commodes still sell well and are used as bedside tables with storage for books. They can be found in many styles. The drawer-table combination is useful and copies ignore original use. Q: When I was a patient at the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor in 1970, I met one of Jimmy Hoffas lieutenants. We became friends and when he found out I was a truck driver and a member of the Teamsters Union, he gave me a gold-filled Zippo pocket lighter. It has a small plaque on the front with the Teamsters logo and the words, A gift from James R. Hoffa, with Hoffas signature. The lighter is pretty banged up because I was a smoker and showed off the lighter as often as possible. Whats my lighter worth today? A: Jimmy Hoffa, born in Indiana in 1913, became an organizer for the International Brotherhood of Teamsters in 1932. He was the unions president from 1958 to 1971, but was convicted of racketeering in 1964 and was sent to prison in 1967. As part of a plea agreement, he was released in 1971, nine years early, but was barred from taking part in union activities. He disappeared outside a suburban Detroit restaurant in 1975 and was declared dead in 1983. His body has never been found. Your lighter was one of many that the union had made as gifts, so its not rare and it was never used by Hoffa himself. But its collectible and would probably sell for more than $60.

It was given to me by my motherin-law about 60 years ago. She called it a sock darner. If its meant for something else, Id like to know. Id also like to know its value. A: A sock darner is a tool that used to be found in most homes. It was designed to put inside a sock to help repair holes. It provided a solid rounded surface that held the sock firmly so holes could be sewn with tight and even stitches that blended in with the rest of the sock. Also called darning eggs, they were made of glass or wood. Most glass sock darners were whimsies that were made at the end of the day by glass workers for their own use, though production darners also were made. They can be found made of all kinds of glass-aqua, nailsea, spatter, peachblow and aurene. A blown-glass sock darner like yours sells for $60 to about $150. Gold or blue aurene sock darners by Steuben can sell for $400.Q: I have a heavy metal belt buckle with a raised picture of a flying turkey and the words Wild Turkey in big letters on the front. Underneath that in smaller letters it reads, 01 proof (8) eight years old. On the back it reads, TM Reproduced by Arrangement with Austin Nichols New York, New York 1974 Bergamot Brass Works. Is it worth anything?A: Your buckle was made in 1974 as a promotional item for the Austin Nichols Distillery for its Wild Turkey brand of bourbon. The buckle was made by Bergamot Brass Works, founded in Fox River Grove, Ill., in 1970. The company later moved to Lake Geneva, Wis., and then to Darien, Wis., in 1974. Its first products were belt buckles and hair ornaments. Later it made buttons, lapel pins, money clips, paperweights, plaques and more. Bergamot also patented a belt buckle with a bottle opener on the back. Your buckle is often found for sale online. Value: About $10. Tip: When moving a chest of drawers or a cabinet with doors a long distance, tape the drawers and doors shut with masking tape, or tie them shut with rope.

CONTRACT BRIDGEFirst-class detective workBY STEVE BECKERLets say youre in seven notrump and West leads a heart. When dummy appears, you can count nine tricks in spades, hearts and clubs, so you will need four diamond tricks to land the grand slam. There are several ways to tackle the diamonds successfully all depending on how theyre divided but your job is to find the winning way, assuming you see only 26 cards. To meet this challenge and before playing any diamonds at all you should try to learn everything you possibly can about how the opposing cards are divided. You start by cashing the A-K-Q of hearts. As it happens, East shows out on the third round, so you now know that West started with five hearts and East with two. Next you cash the A-K-Q of clubs, choosing that suit because you have more clubs than spades. This move also proves enlightening, because you learn that West started with five clubs and East with two. Hot on the scent, you next play three rounds of spades. This, too, turns out to be highly beneficial when you learn that West began with precisely two spades which in turn means that he must have started with exactly one diamond. The reward for your super detective work is that the grand slam is now icecold. So you cash dummys ace of diamonds and then lead a diamond to the jack with 100 percent assurance that the finesse will succeed. Of course, if you look upon all the requisite preliminary moves as overly complex and laborious and choose instead to address the diamonds at the very outset, you might well lose the relatively rare opportunity to bring home a grand slam worth more than 2,000 points.

VINOCool white sangria takes the edge off summer heatNational Sangria Day (as declared by partyexcuses.com) might be Dec. 20 for most of the world, but in Florida, the soul-wrenching heat of summer screams out for the relief of this heavenly combination of chilled fruit and wine. Although its quintessentially Spanish and has been around for hundreds of years, sangria has been well known in the United States ever since it was introduced to this country during the 1964 Worlds Fair in New York. There are as many ways to make sangria as there are people who love it. The only ingredients you need are wine, fresh fruit, spirits, simple syrup and your imagination. Sangre is Spanish for blood, and many sangrias are red. But down here where the sun blazes most of the year, sangria blanca, or white sangria, is a light and refreshing alternative to the traditional red variety. You can also make it with sparkling wine or ros. Good sangria does not call for expensive wine, but the wine does matter, as its the base of the mix. Avoid those with oaky flavors or discernible tannins that will throw off the taste Selecting fruit is easy: Pick three or four that complement one another. Sliced fruit works better than whole fruit, because the whole fruit skins keep the flavors from mixing well. I prefer making sangria from scratch with fresh fruits, but frozen or canned fruits can work as well. The flavor will be a little different, but the results can be just as satisfying. Fruit juice is a good addition, too, and herbs and spices can also add interesting flavor dimensions. The addition of liquor brandy is a traditional choice, but anything goes with sangria brings the concoctions strength back up to normal alcohol content for wine. On the other hand, you can make any sangria non-alcoholic by substituting juices for the liquor and wine. If you use sparkling water, soda or sparkling wine in your recipe, dont add it until just before serving. Prepare the juices, fruit and liquor ahead of time, and then add the sparkle to the top of each glass as you pour them. Whatever recipe you use or invent, let the ingredients marry or meld for a while, to allow the fruits to fully flavor the liquid. Here are two simple recipes Ive recently tried. Both were delicious and fruity, although I wouldnt use as much sweetener the next time around.Sparkling Golden SangriaRecipe courtesy www.bhg.com.

Its no surprise, then, that the red sauce has the complex flavors of a from-scratch recipe that includes hours of stovetop simmering and supervision, or that the lasagna is a magnificent wedge of perfectly cooked pasta overflowing with delicately seasoned meat sauce and mozzarella. Were the place a bit more broken in the tables a little scratched, the paint a mite faded it would be just like a Brooklyn neighborhood joint, with its boisterous atmosphere, oversized family photos covering the walls and customers hunkered down over big plates of steaming pasta. The restaurant began a few years back as a takeout place in Bonita Springs, but Mr. Della Rocca moved things south, to a spot formerly occupied by Andres, about seven months ago. Takeout is still available, but chances are youll want to sit and savor the warm ambience and hospitality along with the food. Start off with a bottle of wine, dozens of which are stored in lovely wooden racks behind the bar and at the back of the dining room. The selection isnt huge about a dozen choices on the standard wine list and a few more on a summer specials list but its plenty for a place this size. Be forewarned, however, that red wine is served at Florida room temperature, which is a little toasty, particularly at this time of year. Its tempting to load up on appetizers such as cup of pasta fagioli, perhaps, or a plate of fried calamari. A hearty Caesar salad or baked clams oreganata. Or maybe a thin-crust pizza to share (theres even a gluten-free crust available). For two, the antipasto alla Pete ($13) is a bountiful plateful of salami, capicola, sopressatta, mozzarella, provolone, gorgonzola, marinated artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted peppers, chickpeas, red onions and olives, all served on romaine lettuce with just a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. This is a simple dish, but one thats brimming with flavor and contrasting textures. Rice balls are available in a trio ($5) or individually ($2) so that you can taste them even if you want to order another appetizer. We ordered one and were rewarded with a good-sized golden orb that was crunchy on the outside, creamy within. While Id have added Parmesan cheese to the filling, the marinara that came with it added zip.Mussels lovers should not miss the mussels bianca ($8.50), a generous mound of mussels simmered in a luscious sauce of butter, w hite wine, capers and garlic. I am not ashamed to say that I spooned up the sauce once we worked our way through the shellfish. As I said, its easy to fill up on the appetizers here, but there are many tempting entrees as well. Pastas abound papardelle carbonara, linguini puttanesca, stuffed shells, cavatelli and broccoli, tortellini. I recommend taking several friends and trying them all. With just two dining companions, we barely made a dent, but what we tried was first rate. Linguini fra diavolo ($15) featured thin pasta properly cooked then tossed with shrimp, clams, mussels and a marinara sauce that had just the right amount of heat. At first glance, it seemed as if there wasnt enough sauce, but the chef clearly knew what he was doing by refraining from flooding the plate. It was just spicy enough without overpowering the shellfish.The aforementioned lasagna ($13) filled the piping hot pan in which it was served and would have been plenty for two or three people, especially if they had appetizers first. The eggplant Parmesan ($13) consisted of three large disks of eggplant, each lightly breaded then topped with tomato sauce and mozzarella and baked until the eggplant was cooked through but not limp. Al dente green beans added color and a little crunch. A large side order of broccoli rabe ($6) was expertly rendered, tender-crisp and bathed in olive oil and garlic. This hearty and garlic-laden meal clearly called for dessert. What could be a better finish than a crisp cannoli ($3.25) stuffed with a velvety sweet ricotta filling sitting atop a squiggle of chocolate sauce? Everything we ordered was fresh, fragrant and served at just the right temperature. And nothing on the menu (with the possible exception of a couple of veal items, which are market priced) exceeds $18. Most dishes are in the $12-$14 range, which is comparable to many chain restaurants that dont come close to matching the quality found here.Service has the same family-friendly style as the food. The servers were warm and accommodating, despite the fact that the place was full and they were busy. Its obvious that Mr. Della Rocca has a passion for feeding people well. Its a tradition that we hope continues for generations to come.
