A8 The evening of Feb. 13 at the home of Steve Said and his family was well on the way to closing out as an uneventful one. By about 8 p.m. that Thursday, everyone Mr. Said, his wife Diane, their three children ages 13, 16 and 19 and his mother-in-law Victoria was wiling away the hours by watching television or getting lost on a computer. That communal calm was shattered with a breathtaking suddenness when five masked men burst into the White Boulevard home, firearms in hand, through an unlocked door. By the time the intruders departed, the Saids were left shaken, their hands and feet bound by duct tape.

TIMM* FACFAS, DABLES, DABPS** 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 PLEASE JOIN The Dangers of Neglected Foot and Ankle PainRSVP 239-465-6623 COMMENTARYSummer campToo often, parents and grandparents simply accept the status quo when it comes to imprisoning their children in summer camps. They commonly buy themselves a kidfree week by shuffling their young charges off to the usual art camp or science camp or music camp or nature camp or sports camp, without ever considering a more worthy alternative. They might even do it two or three times a summer, on each occasion patting themselves on the back for being good parents. But I want to suggest a much more relevant option: the Issues Camp. Since nobody has come forward to outline such a camp, I will do it here, for free. The Issues Camp provides children a hands-on opportunity to safely experience the adult world into which they will soon charge headstrong and selfrighteous. The Issues Camp will allow them to experience the activities of adults who were once children, too, but never had such an opportunity for camp, and are now running our world. Heres how the camp is organized for a five-day period.Issues Camp, Days 1 & 2: Governance.Children will practice the key skills required to carry on as federal, state, county or city elected officials. On these important days they will learn to shake hands (this is also good exercise, especially after shaking hands 300 times in a hot sun); accept lavish treatment from lobbyists (such treatment will include fine meals, special deals on vacation homes or cars, future employment for family members, and future incomeproducing opportunities, all in return for favors); accept bribes under the table, in which children are taught the basic skills required to pass $100 bills back and forth under the table without dropping them, or being seen; and decision making. As future decision makers, children will learn such crucial skills as commissioning a lengthy study, ordering a closed meeting, accepting public records requests with open smiles and then shredding the requested records electronically as well as physically or simply refusing to provide them until they are sued. To round out this important portion of Issues Camp, children will be given a short course in the art of blame, titled, How To Blame The Media. Here, they are taught to mutter two words the media in an accusatory tone that suggests both nauseated disgust and the detection of a sudden highly unpleasant odor, all while shaking their heads in a negative fashion and pointing their fingers. They are also taught key expressions, including the liberal media, or the onesided media, or even such historic terminology as those muckrakers.Issues Camp, Days 3 & 4: The Environment.This important two-day introduction to official stewardship of Floridas natural places can be conducted in one of several locations, depending on the expertise or preferences of camp counselors and instructors. Staff will be specially chosen either from the retired ranks of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers or from private industry. For example, veteran instructors might hail from the management teams of the Fanjul Brothers, owners of Domino Sugar and Florida Crystals; or the Dan A. Hughes Co., oil prospectors from Houston, Texas; or Collier Resources, owners of the mineral rights on more than 800,000 of land in and around the western Everglades; or the Deseret Cattle & Citrus ranch near St. Cloud, with the largest poop-producing cow herd in the United States (more than 45,000, producing 33,000 calves a year, according to some reports). Thats to name just a few. The Dumping Hour: Typically, students will gather either along the Kissimmee River near its mouth just north of Lake Okeechobee, or on the Indian River Lagoon Systems St. Lucie River east of Lake Okeechobee, or at the headwaters of the Caloosahatchee River on the west side of the lake for what the Issues Camp will call, the Dumping Hour. This is very likely to be a favorite among both students and staff. During the Dumping Hour which may, in fact, last several years or decades each student will be positioned on the rivers edge and supplied with 50-gallon drums of liquid phosphorous, liquid nitrogen, a variety of water soluble pharmaceuticals, containers of traditional household septic waste and big bags of trash. Following the instructors count of One, Two, THREE-STANDS-FORINDUSTRY, each student will dump the contents of his or her barrel into the water.Issues Camp, Day 5: Development.During this final day of Issues Camp, students will be taught the rudimentary skills required to drive a bulldozer. They will also be given hands-on demonstrations in the laying of asphalt, in which students ride with instructors who allow them to pull the release levers as asphalt is spread across the earth. In the bulldozer portion of the day, each student will be asked to sit in the drivers seat, lower a massive bucket, put the machine in gear, and drive it forward through an actual patch of native scrub, provided for each student enrolled in Issues Camp. Students are required to remove such anti-development, antibusiness, anti-jobs species as saw palmetto, scrub oak, gopher tortoises, newgrowth cypress, scrub-jay habitat and the like. Future Issues Camp courses will teach the art of building large, dense developments on lands where local-government codes restrict them. By enrolling your child or grandchild in such a camp, you can help provide him or her with real-world skills and an understanding of the realities behind them, presented in an environment full of bonhomie and the warm approval of adults who will be both supportive and very knowledgeable guides to a prosperous Florida future. t c t m i t roger

But someone else also is in an enviable position: Whoever challenges her. The dynamics of the Democratic 2016 race so far feel more like an incumbent president clearing the primary field of any potential spoilers prior to a re-election bid rather than a wide-open nomination contest. At this early juncture, the question is not so much who will be her opponent(s), but whether she will have any, or even one. She certainly should. Any serious Democrat with some gumption and ambition would be a fool to pass up the race based on the forecast of a Clinton coronation. Running against Hillary in 2016 is the greatest growth opportunity in the Democratic Party. Whoever runs against Hillary will, for at least some period of time, be the hottest thing in American politics. On the cover of Time. Interviewed on all the Sunday shows. A figure of fascination whose every move is followed obsessively by every political outlet in the nation. All of this happens right out of the gate. It would be a massive barrage of free advertising in exchange for the act of showing up. What politician with national aspirations wouldnt want such a prominent platform? What he or she would do with it is anyones guess. That would depend on the proficiency and message of the challengers campaign, but history suggests that it would more likely than not get some traction. As much as politics abhors a vacuum, the media hate a stale political narrative. Watching Hillary Clinton march unopposed to the Democratic nomination would be nightmare of tedium for journalists who thrive on conflict and drama. The rooting interest of the press will be for someone to run against Hillary, and to make a real race of it. As a presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton 2.0 so far looks as though it will be like Hillary Clinton 1.0, only more so. Her campaign will operate on the basis of sheer blunt political force and cold hard cash. Its rationale will be inevitability and the history-making prospect of the first woman president. She is very unlikely to face anyone with the sheer political skill of Barack Obama, or with a narrative that fits the moment as precisely as his did in 2008. But she hasnt changed. Some of the same factors that accounted for her vulnerability last time havent gone away: She lacks a deft political touch; the energy of the party is to her left; she has a resume, but not accomplishments; she is cautious to a fault. There will be a tendency among some Democrats to want to see Hillary spared the rigors of a competitive nomination battle. This is a mistake. The only thing worse for Democrats than Hillary getting roughed up in the primaries would be her getting nominated without any chance to exercise her atrophied political muscles. Whoever runs against her would in fact be doing her a kind of service, although surely an unappreciated one. And who knows? Hillarys prospective candidacy may look unbeatable, but shes been inevitable before. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly c S w s n g richLOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly When cruel and unusual punishment becomes usualThe state of Oklahoma tortured a man to death last week. On Tuesday, April 29, Clayton Lockett was strapped to a gurney in the states execution chamber. At 6:23 p.m., before a room of witnesses that included 12 members of the media, the first of three drugs was injected into his veins. Ziva Branstetter, enterprise editor at Tulsa World, was among the reporters who watched. She later reported Locketts ordeal, minute by minute: :29 p.m. Locketts eyes are closed and his mouth is open slightly. :31 p.m. The doctor checks Locketts pupils and places his hand on the inmates chest, shaking him slightly. Mr. Lockett is not unconscious, (Oklahoma State Penitentiary Warden Anita) Trammell states. Branstetters detailed eyewitness account goes on: :38 p.m. Lockett is grimacing, grunting and lifting his head and shoulders entirely up from the gurney. ... He appears to be in pain. Suddenly, the blinds were lowered, concealing the grim activity in the execution chamber. The reporters were told to exit. Lockett was pronounced dead at 7:06 p.m. Branstetter said on the Democracy Now! news hour, We were told by the Department of Corrections last night that they havent even determined that this qualified as an execution, because he died of a heart attack 43 minutes later. Most Oklahoma executions last about six minutes. Department of Corrections Director Robert Patton later explained, His vein exploded. Oklahoma had never used this particular lethal cocktail before: midazolam, a sedative; vecuronium bromide, to stop respiration; and potassium chloride, to stop the heart. Charles Warner was scheduled to be killed on the same day as Lockett. After the horrifically botched execution of Lockett, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin issued a 14-day stay of execution for Warner. Announcing a review of lethal injections, Fallin said on Wednesday that the state needs to be certain of its protocols and procedures for executions and that they work. While the review she has ordered will include an autopsy of Lockett by an independent pathologist, the overall review is being conducted by a member of her cabinet, so its independence is being questioned. Lockett and Warner had sued Oklahoma, claiming that the secrecy surrounding the source of the drugs and the execution cocktail violated their constitutional rights. One Oklahoma judge agreed and issued a stay last month. Justices of the Oklahoma Supreme Court ultimately agreed and issued their own stay of execution on April 21. On April 22, Gov. Fallin, claiming the Supreme Court had no jurisdiction, ignored the stays and rescheduled the executions to April 29. The next day, the Supreme Court rescinded its stay, stating that the inmates do not, in fact, have the right to know the chemicals to be used in their execution. After weeks of Oklahoma refusing to disclose basic information about the drugs for tonights lethal-injection procedures, tonight, Clayton Lockett was tortured to death, said Madeline Cohen, attorney for the other condemned man, Charles Warner. The state must disclose complete information about the drugs, including their purity, efficacy, source and the results of any testing. Until much more is known about tonights failed experiment of an execution, no execution can be permitted in Oklahoma. Locketts botched execution follows on the heels of a similar debacle in Ohio. On Jan. 16, Dennis McGuire was subjected to a two-drug cocktail. His son, also Dennis, witnessed the ordeal: My dad began gasping and struggling to breathe. I watched his stomach heave. I watched him try to sit up against the straps on the gurney. I watched him repeatedly clench his fists. It appeared to me he was fighting for his life, but suffocating. The agony and terror of watching my dad suffocate to death lasted more than 19 minutes. There are many more such stories. States are desperate for the execution drugs, as pharmaceutical companies in Europe refuse to sell to state governments in the U.S. any chemical that might be used in an execution. The Colorado Independent obtained email documents showing the assistant Oklahoma attorney general joking with a Texas colleague that he might be able to help Texas get the drugs in exchange for 50-yard line tickets for a top college football game. The Death Penalty Information Center lists 144 people who have been exonerated from death row since 1973. These are innocent people who might have been executed. An article published in the respected Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, released just a day before Locketts execution, suggests that more than 4 percent of all death-row prisoners would be exonerated, given enough time to properly review their cases. Even in cases where guilt is not in question, an argument can be made on a purely financial basis. It costs three to four times more to execute a prisoner than it does to incarcerate for life with no chance of parole. Most developed nations have banned capital punishment. The United States stands shoulder to shoulder in continuing this barbaric practice with countries like China, Iraq, Iran and Saudi Arabia. As states commit atrocious experiments on prisoners like Lockett, it is vital to remember that the Constitution prohibits cruel and unusual punishment. Sadly, cruel and unusual is becoming more and more usual. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

PAGE 8 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 Be a hero. Save their days. Forever.Once upon a time, we all believed in heroes because whenever danger or evil might have threatened us, heroes somehow saved the day. Fortunately, along come new heroes for every child in Southwest Florida. People just like you, who are helping us reach the nish line and build the new Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. Be a hero. Save someones days. Today. Forever.Be a Hero Today | $5 Gets You Started | Baby sea turtle named Betsy in honor of longtime advocate SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYIn an emotional meeting at the Conservancy Nature Center on April 18, longtime sea turtle advocate and volunteer Betsy Sandstrom met her new namesake. Ms. Sandstrom, who is terminally ill, was surrounded by more than 120 friends and family members as Conservancy President and CEO Rob Moher announced the Conservancys baby loggerhead sea turtle would be named Betsy. How all of this came together is nothing short of magnificent and miraculous, said Andrea Jones, a longtime friend of Ms. Sandstrom. One of the Conservancys most accomplished and long-running projects is its research and work to monitor and protect loggerheads. It is one of the few organizations that hold a permit to house the species. When staff learned about the baby turtles pending arrival at the Nature Center, they knew they would want to use it toward educating the community about the importance of the species to Southwest Floridas ecosystem. We believe if we can connect people with nature, the more willing they are to protect it, Mr. Moher said. Following the hatchlings arrival, a contest was launched on social media to help give the little loggerhead a name. When she learned of the contest, Ms. Jones knew it would be the perfect way to honor her friend. Ms. Sandstrom is beloved among friends and colleagues as a passionate supporter and defender of the threatened species as well as a longtime volunteer with the Bonita Springs/Fort Myers Beach organization Turtle Time. After losing her hair during treatment for her cancer, she decided to further demonstrate her passion for protecting sea turtles by placing temporary tattoos on her head for every turtle nest found last season. I wanted to do something nice for my friend, Ms. Jones said. I love her and would do anything for her. The opportunity to leave a legacy in her name which continues inspiring awareness for the animal she so loved, is just incredible. The result has been something even greater, however, according to David Webb, Conservancy director of environmental education. Betsy Sandstroms devotion to protect sea turtles has brought us together, he said. Loggerheads have a very low survival rate in the wild. Only one in 1,000 sea turtles survives to adulthood. True to its mission of protecting Southwest Floridas water, land and wildlife, the Conservancy began the Florida Sea Turtle Monitoring and Protection Program in 1982 on Keewaydin Island. Now, in its 32nd year, the program has saved nearly 260,000 little loggerheads. The new nesting season began on May 1 and extends through October. Female loggerheads return the beaches where they are hatched 25 years later when it is their time to nest. They lay 100-120 eggs per nest and Loggerhead sea turtle facts>> Scienti c name: Caretta caretta >> Adult length: 3 feet >> Weight: 250-300 pounds >> Lifespan: 50-plus years >> Habitat: Widely distributed throughout temperate and tropical regions of the ocean. Here in Florida, sea turtles forage in sea grass beds, rocky patches and reef areas, just like visitors can see in the Conservancys 6,000-gallon aquarium. >> Diet: Primarily carnivorous >> Protection status: Threatened in Florida, endangered in other parts of the world >> Threats: As hatchlings, sea turtles face several natural predators, but as adults their only predators are sharks and humans. Human threats include habitat loss, poaching, pollution, litter (such as plastic bags), commercial shing and boat collisions.

Hatchlings follow the lightest part of the horizon (reflected light over the water), which is how they find their way from the nest to the water. This is why beachfront residents are urged to keep lights off at night during the nesting season. Florida is one of only two epicenters in the world where loggerheads come to nest. Through patrolling beaches, marking nests, tagging turtles, counting hatched eggs and educating the community, the Conservancys team works to protect and monitor the success of loggerhead sea turtle nests. Imagine the devastation to this amazing species if our protection program didnt exist, said Dave Addison, senior biologist at the Conservancy. Back at the Conservancys Nature Center, Betsy the loggerhead now serves as an educational ambassador for the species. She will be released into the wild when she reaches the size by which she can survive on her own; the hope is that she will return to create nests of her own. We hope that everyone who hears this story and visits our Betsy will be inspired to support sea turtle protection too, Mr. Moher said. We are proud to give our baby sea turtle a name that carries with it such a wonderful legacy. BETSYFrom page 8

Thirty high school juniors and seniors participating in TIFs career development program came dressed to impress and interact with local businessmen and women, sharing their goals, ambitions and how they plan to achieve their vision. The business executives shared stories of their own experiences and lessons learned throughout their lives and careers to help guide students in preparation for their transition to college and beyond. Prior to the afternoon reception, students attended an etiquette training session and luncheon with Dawn Magaril and Dirga Buwana of The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort. Then they were ready to practice their skills and prepared to ask questions about their prospective career paths. They mingled throughout the room, introducing themselves to more than 30 professionals in a variety of leadership positions from companies such as Edison State College, Arthrex, Coldwell Banker, the Hilton Naples, The Print Shop, McKenney Home Care, Collier County Sheriffs Office, Holiday Inn Express & Suites, Central Bank, Bay Colony Golf Club, NCH Healthcare Systems and Gravina, Smith, Matte & Arnold Marketing and Public Relations. In addition, several TIF board members, staff, ambassadors and mentors gave their encouragement and advice to the students they support all year long. In preparation for the networking reception, Lori Kleiman, an entrepreneur and member of National Speakers Association, hosted a networking training for the students in March. The students also created business cards prior to the event, which included their college of choice and major. While working the room, they exchanged cards with the business professionals in hopes of making connections that could further their potential job opportunities. Their face-to-face interactions with local pros are instrumental in helping these future business leaders build confidence and gain skills necessary to achieve their dreams, and the students were grateful for the opportunity. Maria Sebastion-Jimenez, an Immokalee High School junior who wants to major in nursing at Edison State College, was happy to be a part of the days activities. It allowed me to meet new people and feel more comfortable, she said. The business leaders have inspired me to reach for my goal and not give up. Jovenel Benjamin, a member of TIFs Take Stock In Children program, has dreams of attending ESC and then transferring to receive a degree in mechanical engineering. Its great to meet people with connections and beneficial to have confidence when meeting new people. Kenia Jean-Pierre, a senior at Immokalee High School, aims to attend community college to become a paralegal and then transfer to Florida State University to study criminal justice and international relations. Ultimately, she wants to become a judge at an appellate court. She is especially indebted to TIF for helping to open her eyes. Coming from a small town, I had small views, she said. TIF gives me hope and makes me believe if I work hard, I can achieve my dreams. With business leaders representing numerous companies and careers, students appreciated the confirmation that a wide variety of options are available to them. The business professionals also provided insights into making connections and building lasting beneficial relationships that are crucial to securing a job and advancing in a career. Manuel Ramirez, a junior at Immokalee High School, picked up some tips for the interview process and heard about the importance of money and time management all helpful information as he prepares for his future. He wants to major in business management at University of South Florida. The students also came to realize that social skills make a noticeable difference in the business community. Anita Munoz-Trejo, a senior at Immokalee High School who hopes to major in health science at Florida Gulf Coast University, said the manners lessons she learned will boost her confidence when dining at a business event. Junior Edwin Herard said he learned something equally significant: Its important to major in something you l ove, f ollow your heart, set goals and prioritize yourself.

The fun begins at 11 a.m. with a parade of boats decked out to this years Zombies in Paradise theme in hopes of winning the $1,000 best-dressed prize. Long-time emcee and race founder Vin DePasquale of The Dock restaurant will be joined by co-emcee Jerry Conti. John Cox, president and CEO of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, will serve as grand marshal of the race. An important element of the race every year is the $5,000 grant awarded to a local childrens charity each year. This years beneficiary is Drug Free Collier; funds from the Great Dock Canoe Race will support drug and alcohol abuse prevention clubs, known as the CORE Society, at Naples High School and Gulfview Middle School. Funding will provide materials for the schoolwide and community outreach initiatives led by students and compensation of the faculty advisor who works with the students each week. New CORE clubs are starting at other schools throughout Collier County. After the parade of decorated boats, the Great Dock Canoe Race sets out in three heats. Those who are racing largely for the fun of it will set off around 1 p.m. in three categories: Ambitious Amateurs, Next Generation (12to 17-year-olds paddling with a parent or guardian) and Truly Tenacious (both canoeists age 65 or older). This means therell be some contra-flow as teams pass each other racing in opposite directions, with the hoped-for result being a tighter race overall and more interest for spectators. In addition to The Dock, this years race is sponsored by Riverwalk at Tin City. Underwriting for the VIP Sprint is provided by the Lutg ert Companies/Lutgert Insurance/ Premier Sothebys International Realty and First National Bank of the Gulf Coast. Wiegold One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating is sponsoring the Ambitious Amateurs race, and the Cove Inn is sponsoring the Truly Tenacious race. This years media sponsor is Renda Broadcasting, including Mix 104.7 and 98.9FM WGUF. Naples Extreme Family Fun Spot is sponsoring the safety boats, Bleu Provence French Restaurant is the canoe crew sponsor, and Sierra Grande and Childs & Childs Cosmetic Dentistry are the trolley co-sponsors. The city of Naples also is a long-time race sponsor. Trolley service from parking areas along Eighth Street South at Sixth Avenue South and Eighth Avenue South will be available from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on racy day. Spectator boats must stay within the designated area, and safe boating rules will be enforced. For more information, visit

Coupon Expires 05/31/2014Naples Bonita Springs Floridians confidence in economy stays fairly flat THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAFloridians consumer sentiment declined one point in April to 79, according to a new University of Florida survey. As we expected, the overall consumer sentiment index is remaining relatively flat given the lack of significant economic news, says Chris McCarty, director of UFs Survey Research Center in the Bureau of Economic and Business Research. Here in Florida, the economy remains on a steady path without any big changes either negative or positive. Three of the five components making up the index decreased, and two increased. Respondents overall opinion that they are financially more secure than a year ago fell three points to 69 from a post-recession high in March. Their expectations of improved personal finances a year from now also fell, dropping six points to 77. Confidence in U.S. economic conditions over the next year dropped five points to 77, but expectations that the nations economy will do better over the next five years rose five points to 82. Finally, the component measuring whether the present is a good time to buy a big-ticket item, such as a car, increased three points to 89. Floridas unruffled consumer sentiment, however, is five points lower than the national level of 84. Concern over employment might help explain why. Last month Floridas unemployment rate ticked up one-tenth of a percent to 6.3 percent. This, however, is not necessarily bad news, Mr. McCarty says. A typical pattern after most recessions is for unemployment to temporarily increase, as previously discouraged workers see more job availability and reenter the labor force, he explains. There is no doubt that Florida lost workers from the labor force. The question is whether they permanently left to take early retirement, or whether they temporarily left for job training or are just biding time until the labor market improves. Floridas labor force also got bigger. While it is too early to tell, this increase could signal improvements ahead in Floridas job market, at least for those workers having a job even if the wages for those jobs are lower than they were prior to the recession, Mr. McCarty adds. Housing continued to improve in March with the median price for a single-family home rising to $173,000, a level not achieved since last August. However, a recent report on national new home sales for March was down 14.5 percent, indicating there may be a slowdown in housing this year compared to last year. Floridians can expect consumer confidence to remain in the upper 70s to low 80s, given the dearth of significant economic news. However, international developments, such as the conflict between Ukraine and Russia, and a continuing decline in the growth of the Chinese economy could darken consumers mood. Conducted April 1-24, the UF study reflects the responses of 402 individuals, representing a demographic crosssection of Florida. The index used by UF researchers is benchmarked to 1966, which means a value of 100 represents the same level of confidence for that year. The lowest index possible is a two; the highest is 150. Details of the April survey can be found at Older drivers can brush up on skillsAARP safe driving classes help older drivers learn new traffic laws and refresh their driving skills.

(239) 415-7576 Recapture Your Youthful Beauty th th Fort Myers Price of friendshipWhoever said, Money cant buy you friends clearly hasnt been on the Internet recently, wrote The New York Times in April, pointing to various social media support services that create online superstars by augmenting ones Facebook friends, Twitter followers and Instagram likes. The reporter described how, by paying a company $5, for example, he immediately acquired 4,000 friends, and had he splurged for $3,700, could have had a million on his Instagram photo account. Such services have been around for two years, but earlier, cruder versions (sometimes, just unmonitored email addresses) are now sophisticated bots groups of computer code created on algorithm farms in India and elsewhere that behave on social media with original messaging (often drivel, wrote the Times) as if they were real people. The entrepreneurial spirit In April, Haagen-Dazs announced it will introduce two new ice creams (thankfully, only in Japan): carrot orange (with bits of pulp and peel) and tomato cherry (made from tomato paste). A South Wales ice cream maker (Lick Me Im Delicious) announced in April that it has perfected an ice cream containing about 25mg of Viagra per scoop (though it is not yet generally available). In January, Londons Daily Telegraph found three British companies in competition to sell deodorant supposedly made especially for womens breasts. According to one, Fresh Body, Were replacing swoobs dreaded boob sweat with smiles. Owner Christian Ingber recently opened a sandwich shop in Gothenburg, Sweden, named A F***ing Awesome Sandwich. An American expatriate told Stockholms The Local news service that Swedes think English curse words are cute and charming. Science fair Chinas Chengdu Commercial Daily reported in March that Liu Yougang, 23, finally had surgery to remove that whistle he had swallowed when he was 9. He had been experiencing worsened breathing and had been making shrill whistle sounds nightly after falling asleep. Londons Daily Star featured Sarah Beal, 43, of Arley, Warwickshire, England, in a March story demonstrating her skin condition in which writing words on her skin makes it puff up for about an hour before it recedes. It is referred to by doctors as the Etch A Sketch condition (formally, dermatographia), and despite occasional pain, she described it as cool and a party trick. Cornell University graduate student Michael Smith, disappointed at the paucity of research on the pain of honeybee stings, decided to evaluate the stings himself (but in line with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975 on safe self-experimentation). Mr. Smiths protocols required five stings a day on various body locations for 38 days at least three on each of 25 body areas. The worst, according to his pain index, were the nostril (9.0) and the upper lip (8.7). North Carolinas Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine is already well known to News of the Weird readers for creating functional organs in the lab (most notably, perhaps, growing a human bladder and a rabbits penis). In an April article in the Lancet, the program announced that it had implanted artificial vaginas in four women in the U.S. A functioning vagina, the director told BBC News, is a very important thing.Leading economic indicators While Medicare continues to be among the most costly federal services, and U.S. doctors continue to drop out of the program because of paltry fees for some procedures, other specialists are rewarded with such outsized compensation that almost 4,000 physicians were paid $1 million or more for 2012 and about 350 of those totaled nearly $1.5 billion, according to Medicare records released in April 2014. Ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen of West Palm Beach, Fla., took in more than $20 million and treated 645 Medicare patients with a total of 37,000 injectable doses of Lucentis (a much more expensive drug than the popularly regarded equivalent, Avastin), according to Business Insider. (In fact, taxpayers could have saved more than $11 million with Avastin on Dr. Melgens billings alone, according to an April Washington Post analysis.) Visitors to the New York City office of Clear Channel radio station group chairman Bob Pittman are greeted exotically as they step off the elevator by a tunnel of fine mist. However, a spokeswoman told a New York Post reporter in March that it isnt for cooling or humidifying, but to impress advertisers, in that Clear Channel knows how to project the advertisers logo against the mist. (Clear Channel, the Post reported, is $21 billion in debt and has laid off thousands of employees.) Intelligent design In a springtime rite in Narcisse, Manitoba, tens of thousands of red-sided garter snakes slithered out of pits in March so that writhing males could hook up with pheromone-spewing females. Londons Daily Mail called it the largest gathering of snakes on the planet with balls of males wrapped around females. Once again this year, the Toads on Roads charity in Sleaford, England, called for volunteers in February to police a highway where post-hibernating female toads carry horny males on their backs across a road to mate in marshes. Without help, said the charity, up to two-thirds of the amorous toads would not survive oncoming cars.

The following email from Danielle Byers, R.N., tells the story:On Saturday in the Operating Room, we received a call from obstetrics about a patient delivered two hours prior and was hemorrhaging. Dr. Emily Clements scheduled a D&C for control of bleeding. Dr. Tom Cook and an anesthesia student went to assist in the transfer to OR. While waiting, I was called again by Cathy Stevens, R.N., from OB stating the patient was crashing and on her way ... It was a crazy situation. ... As Dr. Cook and some anesthesia students worked feverishly to resuscitate her Dr. Clements decided an abdominal hysterectomy would be necessary. Our people were amazing. Melody Bacon, Chris Raphael and the nurses from OB were vital in getting the patient to the OR with amazing speed. The young anesthesia students, Samantha Thomas, Erin Wilson and Nathan Moos, and Dr. Cook were able to resuscitate the patient with 17 units of blood products and fluids ... es Whitright, CRNA, also came to assist the anesthesia team and was imperative to this patients survival. Thank you to all of them. The situation was dire at best ... Endo nurses Carolyn Davie and Janet Tipper, R.N.s, came to help of their own accord and aided in the checking of blood products and anything that needed to be done to help. My scrub tech, Yves Desruisseaux, was phenomenal in providing the physicians with what they needed to care for this patient. In all my years of OR experience, I have come to realize that the caliber of a SEE WEISS, A23 Combined therapies show improvement in MS symptomsCombining the estrogen hormone estriol with Copaxone, a drug indicated for the treatment of patients with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis, or MS, may improve symptoms in patients with the disorder, according to preliminary results from a clinical study of 158 patients with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis. The findings were presented recently by Rhonda Voskuhl, M.D., from the University of California, Los Angeles, at the American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting in Philadelphia. The study was funded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, part of the National Institutes of Health; and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. While these results are encouraging, the results of this Phase II study should be considered preliminary as a larger study would be needed to know whether benefits outweigh the risks for persons affected by MS. At present, we cannot recommend estrogen as part of standard therapy for MS. We encourage patients to talk with their doctors before making any changes to their treatment plans, said Walter Koroshetz, M.D., deputy director of NINDS. MS is an autoimmune disorder in which immune cells break down myelin, a protective covering that wraps around nerve cells. Loss of myelin results in pain, movement and balance problems as well as changes in cognitive ability. RRMS is the most common form of the disorder. Patients with RRMS experience relapses, or flare-ups, of neurological symptoms, followed by recovery periods during which the symptoms improve. Numerous laboratory studies have suggested that estrogen may have neuroprotective effects and may help decrease inflammation, which occurs in MS. In addition, it has been reported that MS patients experience improvement in symptoms during the phase of pregnancy when levels of estrogen increase. However, studies looking at the effects of estrogen therapy on womens health have shown mixed results. Estriol, the form of estrogen examined in this study, is only produced in the body during pregnancy. In this two-year study, patients received Copaxone along with 8 milligrams per day of estriol or placebo pills. The primary goal of the trial was to determine if estriol helped decrease the number of relapses experienced by RRMS patients who were also taking Copaxone. Researchers found that at 12 months, estrogen combination therapy was associated with a greater reduction in relapse rates compared to Copaxone and placebo. However, at 24 months, the difference between the treatment groups was not as great as it was at 12 months. The findings presented by Dr. Voskuhl suggest that there may be benefits to supplementing Copaxone therapy with estrogen. A longer study, with more patients, would be necessary to definitively validate these provocative, although early, findings, said Dr. Koroshetz.

Clearly, the right choice.239.939.3456 PET TALESChicken talesKeeping chickens as pets and egg-layers is a popular pastime, but its a good idea to know what youre getting into BY DR. TONY JOHNSONUniversal UclickAbout three years ago, my wife and I happened upon some chickens. A family friend had gotten caught up in the recent rage of urban chicken acquisition and had obtained six chickens. They had forgotten to obtain any housing for them, so we offered to help out and take three of the birds. We read up on chicken husbandry, built a coop and drove over to bring home our new flock in cat carriers. Heres the upside to chicken ownership: Great, fresh eggs, every day (on average, each chicken lays one egg per day). No need to buy eggs anymore a cost savings, and we know our chickens are humanely treated. Fun for the kids to watch (us, too chickens are hilarious goofballs). Easy disposal of our kitchen waste they eat everything (as long as its not moldy or an avocado; avocados are chicken kryptonite). With two 2-year-olds at home, we have lots of leftover I wont eat that! food. Now, heres the downside: They are noisy: They squabble and fight like junior-high girls at the Filenes Basement shoe sale rack. Sometimes, I have to go out back and shout a loud: SHHHHHHHH! If you dont shut up, I am calling The Colonel! Poo. Everywhere. Theres no way to potty train a chicken, and no such thing as a chicken diaper. We let them out for some fresh air and bug-eating, and they poo. A lot. Everywhere. Although ours have tested negative for salmonella, I do worry about our familys exposure to it, given the large amount of poo around. (More on this below.) We will never, ever have nice landscaping. In their obsessive quest to find the juicy bugs and worms, they dig up everything. Then, for good measure, they poo on it. Chickens have become a feathery emblem of the new naturism if you fancy yourself a self-sustaining, eco-minded person, a wee flock is de rigueur these days. And, like many fads, the initial rosetinted joy soon fades to reality. Chickens can carry salmonella and a few other bacterial baddies. These can do a number on your GI tract and really put a hurting on you if youre very young, very old or have weakened immunity. If you get it, youll be hugging the commode for a few days, or worse. We constantly clean up after them, and even then I feel like we always have some poo lying about. Washing hands after handling them or the eggs is a must. Here is some CDC info on safe home chicken ownership: Another great source of information and support is the community at Backyard Chickens: Egg handling is important, too. There is a healthy debate about washing the eggs: Some say it removes an invisible slime layer that keeps bacteria out, while some say to wash them. Since we eat them as soon as we collect them, we dont wash our eggs (unless they are really dirty), but just wipe them off. Here is a link to safe egghandling information: www.ext.colostate. edu/pubs/foodnut/09377.pdf. The life of a chicken owner is easy, delicious and fun. Its a great way to lessen your eco-footprint and teach your kids where their food comes from. But you dont want to get halfway into it and say to yourself, What the CLUCK were we thinking? With a little prep, a little reading and a little precaution you, too, can safely enjoy all the benefits of having your own flock!

NAPLES URGENT CARE WALK-IN MEDICAL CLINICESTERO URGENT CARE WALK-IN MEDICAL in cash, jewelry and laptop computers. It is a traumatizing scenario that has played out at four other Collier County homes over the ensuing months, leaving victims and residents on edge and leading local law enforcement officials to join forces to bring the home invaders to justice. Naples has been the scene of two home invasions; three others have occurred in unincorporated Collier County. Weve had the five cases since Feb. 13, the last one being April 3, and theres a good possibility of the five cases being related. We wanted to put as many resources as we can on it and work together, says Lt. John Morrisseau of the Collier County Sheriffs Office, who is a task force member. The task force formed on April 7 and also includes members of the Naples and Marco Island police departments, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the FBI. A home invasion tips hotline 252-0300 has been established by the CCSO for anyone to call, and Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is offering a $26,000 reward for tips that lead to arrests in connection with the crimes. The Crime Stoppers hotline is (800) 780-8477. Lt. Morrisseau says he is not aware of a similar rash of non-drug related home invasions in the county and that theres no way of knowing why they are happening now until the perpetrators are captured. Thus far, the thieves have taken cash, jewelry, precious metals and some firearms from their victims. There has only been one injury, sustained during the Feb. 19 invasion of a home on Golden Oaks Lane in which the resident, Mark Smith, was struck in the face by a robber. Mr. Smith was treated at NCH and released. None of the crimes have involved forced entry, says Lt. Morrisseau. In some instances, the perpetrators have entered through unlocked doors, while in other cases, they have confronted the victim outside the home and forced them inside. While Lt. Morrisseau could not go into detail about the ongoing investigation, he did say that law enforcement has detected some patterns to the crimes. Were not able to determine for sure right now if its one group or multiple groups, but there are definitely some similarities in the cases, he adds. Like Lt. Morrisseau, Naples Police Chief Thomas Weschler cannot recall a similar outbreak of home invasions in his jurisdiction. Just like its been happening in the county, theres not one type of neighborhood that its occurring in, says Chief Weschler. He adds he and Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk were in communication as soon as the first home invasion occurred in the city on Feb. 24 at a home off 17th Avenue South. The robbers struck again in Naples on March 11 at an Osprey Trail residence. Mr. Saids familys ordeal began while everyone was in relaxing their bedrooms. What happened next is my dogs started barking and ran out of my bedroom door. As they ran out, a guy with a mask came in with a gun and pointed it at me and said, Is anybody else here? he recalls. It was a 45 (caliber) revolver. It was five guys all with guns and masks, long sleeves and pants. After escorting everyone to the master bedroom, at gunpoint, the thieves set about relieving the family of their valuables. Mr. Said says his family was worried, but largely composed throughout the roughly 90-minute robbery. The bad guys said if you dont cooperate, were going to kill you, he says. They said if you tell us where everything is, well be out of here in a few minutes and no one will get hurt. The robbers took Mr. Saids cash, his wifes jewelry and laptop computers and tossed the familys cell phones into the toilet before leaving. The police were notified when Mr. Said was able to free himself and run to a neighbors home. Sgt. Rebecca Gonzalez of the CCSO Crime Prevention Bureau has been educating residents in a group setting or individually on home-invasion prevention techniques, as well as how to be a good witness. There are things that can discourage criminals from making them a target, says Sgt. Gonzalez. So if you can put those obstacles in front of the opportunity, the criminal will select a different target. Weve seen that time and time again. Cpt. Tim Guerrette of of CCSO Patrol Division urges residents to be vigilant and to not hesitate to call police if something seems amiss in their neighborhood. Its a team effort, says Cpt. Guerrette. We really need the community, if they see something that doesnt look right in their neighborhood, to not hesitate to call us. INVASIONSFrom page 1 Protect yourselfThe Collier County Sheriffs Of ce offers the following suggestions for creating a family safety plan: >> It is important to activate security measures especially when you are home. >> Lock your doors and windows. >> Always set your alarm. If you have video surveillance, make sure it is on and recording and that the lense is clean and well maintained. >> Keep outside lights on. >> Close blinds and curtains to prevent your routine from being observed. >> Increase the awareness of your surroundings. >> Consider placing your valuables in a safety deposit box. >> Get to know your neighbors. If you see someone who appears out of place, call CCSO. >> Be a good witness. If you are a victim of a crime, try to remember as much detail as possible to convey to law enforcement. >> Discuss with your family members possible emergency scenarios and how to respond.

The snowbirds favorite since 1980 Reserve THE DIVA DIARIESWatching the royals never goes out of styleDont laugh, but Im totally bummed out that Prince William, Duchess Kate and Baby Prince Georges royal tour of Australia and New Zealand is over. Whats that you say? You didnt even know that the junior royal family toured down under for three fun, festive and fashion-filled weeks? Well, they did. And being the dutiful royal watcher that I am, I followed every moment on the Interwebs with an interest that bordered on obsessed. But, this is nothing new. I was one of those girls who woke up 3 a.m. to watch Charles and Dianas royal wedding on TV when I was 16. Ill never forget the horse and carriage, her bouquet that was bigger than her head and almost reached the ground, that enormous gown and, most especially, the lovely, sparkling tiara she wore. It was then that I knew I was destined to be a princess or at least to wear a tiara on a regular basis. I set my sights on the youngest of Queen Elizabeths sons, Prince Edward mostly because he was closest to my own age and because, at the time, I thought he was the cutest (a recent Google image search proved that he no longer holds that title, and in fact, none of the Queens children have aged particularly well bless their hearts). The only thing that held me back was making my way to England then somehow getting invited to a royal event and then wrangling an introduction and I was a little worried that once the prince fell madly in love with me at first sight, it might be a problem that I was American Oh, well Id think about that another day. The first step was getting across the pond, which alas, still has not happened, and since Im married and Edward is married, Ive given up the dream. Sigh. Nevertheless, all through my 20s and early 30s, I followed Princess Diana in the magazines: the births of her boys, her stunning style, the break-up of her marriage. When she died, I cried for days. My fascination and admiration for the royal family dwindled, and when Prince Charles married that Awful Woman, I was just livid. But, then along came Kate. At first, I was determined to keep her at arms length (no one could measure up to Diana), but in the photos of Wills looking at her, his eyes were just so much like his mothers. And then he gave her Dianas super-fabulous sapphire engagement ring. And Kate has that amazing, bouncy, shiny hair. And then she gave birth to that chubby-cheeked adorable little George, and now Im all Queen of the Royal Fan Club again. (I just pretend that Charles miserable wife doesnt exist. Im sorry. I do hold grudges.) For a Royal Watcher such as moi, the recent tour felt like Christmas every day, with pretty Kate in a plethora of delightful frocks by Jenny Peckham, Alexander McQueen, Issa and more. If youre as into this sort of thing as I am, youll want to visit or surf over to The people who run these sites have a lot of time on their hands and can direct to where you can pick up your own versions of Kates fashions (it helps to be a size 2 and 5 though, so good luck with that). While the tour is over (sniffle), at least handsome Prince Harry is single again, after just recently breaking the heart of his girlfriend of two years, Cressida Bonas (Im not sure I liked her anyway). Hopefully, hell keep us busy with his bachelor shenanigans. Harry is 29, by the way. So while the ship of Princesshood has long sailed into the wild blue yonder for me, young ladies interested in a legit tiara must follow those dreams and skedaddle to London, stat. Treat mom to teaPersonally, I think that right here in Naples, one automatically becomes royalty the moment one sweeps through the doors of either of the two Ritz-Carlton properties that grace our environs.

B4 Nils Richter, a commercial Realtor for Market America Group and an investor and restaurateur in his own right, specializes in curse breaking. Mr. Richter doesnt put it quite that way, however he calls himself a distressed real estate specialist, which means his Lee County-based business has had plenty of work in recent years. And it is work, for either the broker chaperoning the move, or for investors and tenants moving into locations to start businesses where others have failed: Bokampers Sports Bar & Grill on Fontana Del Sol Way in Naples, for example; or Two Brothers Home Style Cooking on Marion Avenue in Punta Gorda; or the Tilted Kilt with Belushis comedy club on top, on Cleveland Avenue in South Fort Myers; or any one of 50 other prominent places that cant seem to keep a tenant, say the owners themselves. Downtown Fort Myers itself is all about breaking curses, notes Mr. Richter, referring to the decades-long struggle that businesses began winning about the time Raimond Aulen, owner of the Indigo Room, and his crew of volunteers along with the city resurrected the old bricks Thomas Edison had walked on, restored them and replaced them over new infrastructure.

For instance, pose the question about how to get rid of aches and pains to a general practitioner, an arthritis specialist, sports medicine practitioner, pain disorder specialist, a chiropractor, an acupuncturist, a massage therapist and a holistic specialist, and you will get answers that vary from prescriptions, to physical therapy, to recommendations for green diets and detoxing, to an MRI, to a request for weekly adjustments, and the list goes on. Logically, their answers will reflect their particular knowledge base, and of course, their particular revenue base. Equally so, pose a broad financial question to a variety of diverse finance and legal professionals and you will get a litany of answers reflecting their expertise and their revenue base. The question, How should I build a life estate and what are the most efficient ways to pass on the estate? posed to a life insurance professional, a stockbroker, a real estate broker, a banker, an entrepreneur, a corporate executive, a private equity manger, hedge fund manager, etc., will elicit varying answers: whole life, universal life, annuities, corporate stock options, a trust filled with equities or hedge funds or private equity, creation of a family business, purchase of commercial real estate holdings, etc. How can it be that one question has so many disparate answers? The reason is that most investment professionals can only sell specific products and they then tailor the use of those products to answer the many financial questions that hopefully creates a new client base. For instance, the life insurance professional offers insurance and annuity products, and these products can be used to solve the question of building an estate and/or tax efficiently passing along an estate. The real estate broker answers with land, commercial, industrial and residential holding directly or in partnership form. The corporate executive answers with amassing corporate stock options and getting coverage under corporate health plans, etc. The stockbroker will point to equities. The entrepreneur will insist on a startup business. The sample question is akin to asking how to reach NYC from D.C. Answer: By train, by plane, by car, by bike, by boat, etc. The tenured pilot can comment about his airlines flights, but he probably cant comment on other airlines and certainly cant reliably comment on boat, train, car, etc., nor can the tenured train conductor comment about flight schedules. But somehow in the area of finance, the person posing the generic question thinks that all finance professionals across diverse financial disciplines will answer in unison. But the insurance broker is generally but not always (as some are very sophisticated) not in position to respond beyond the specifics of life insurance and, even beyond the types of insurance products offered by their firm. And it might be that it is a challenge for them to fully understand the intricacies of many products offered by their firm! Of course, there is greater commonality of answer from those who have a financial planning certification of some sort; but again, you will find differences if their business practice specializes in particular investment vehicle. Far beyond a preference to stick to their financial products, many of these professionals are capable of understanding and selling a variety of products/ solutions but often it requires different certifications (time and money) and differing compliance reporting (time and money) and differing product/firm relationships (sometimes in conflict and not do-able). So what is the average Joe to do? First, see if you can find a financial generalist who has had experience across many financial disciplines. This is usually very hard to find. Few investment professionals have sold insurance, been an equity broker, invested in hedge funds themselves, run a large commercial real estate portfolio, started a business and had a sojourn as a corporate executive. But some investment professionals have been trained and worked across disciplines. Why so little cross training/work experience? Because the world of big finance demands experts and specialists, and that is where the big money lies. The average Joe has to settle for someone with less experience and a smaller knowledge base. So, if there is not a generalist who can discuss these various investment realms, then you might want to take it upon yourself to interview a consortium of investment professionals: e.g., two life insurance salesmen, two investment advisers, two real estate developers or brokers, two equity money managers, two trust and estate attorneys. Then you will have become the generalist. Each professional will promote the good points of their products. Your interviews of others will bring further insight into the strengths and weaknesses of these products. Third, find out how the investment professionals make their money and then you will understand the skew in their solutions. After all, even though professionals might heartily believe in their products, services, counsel, etc., their compensation is somehow tied to recruitment and retention of clients.

PAGE 32 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 My founder, billionaire Sheldon Adelson, is known today for his generous support of the Republican Party. He made a name (and fortune) for himself earlier, though, by founding the COMDEX computer trade show in 1979. Later he bought a Las Vegas hotel and launched his empire. Today, Im the worlds largest casino operator, with a market value topping $60 billion. My two key properties on the Las Vegas Strip are the Venetian and the Palazzo. I was also among the first to build in Macau, Chinas gambling-friendly region now a bigger gambling venue than Las Vegas. Who am I? Know the answer?

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Dont Regret SellingIt happens every time the stock market tanks: Some folks sell their holdings quickly and avoid further losses and seem like investing geniuses. Their selling might seem smart, but it often becomes less so, if they dont get back into the market to profit from its eventual recovery. After all, the stock market doesnt move in a straight line. It rises and falls, plunges and surges. And its overall trend is upward.Thus, many people who sell near the beginning, middle or end of a bear market often end up watching from the sidelines as the stock market recovers. They end up having locked themselves out of a lot of stock appreciation, and possibly even locked in losses when they sold. Failing to get back into the stock market in time is potentially a much larger mistake than never having sold your stocks in the first place. Sure, it feels good to have avoided seeing your portfolio drop as far as it would have if you had held on to all your stocks. But after the market recovers, you could easily see yourself with a smaller net worth than if you had stuck with your original portfolio. A recovering market will, after all, eventually hit new all-time highs.Protecting your portfolio from losses is one of the most important keys to being a successful investor. But if you decide that youre going to sell shares of a stock in which you have long-term confidence, you need to remember that selling is only the first part of a two-part process. You also need to determine when youre going to buy back those shares.As simple as that sounds, experience shows that its anything but especially since no one can know exactly when a stock or the market will move up or down. Its actually much easier to accept the rises and falls of the market by holding on to the stocks you think are good long-term holdings through thick and thin. That will save you from a potentially much larger mistake from which your portfolio might never recover. Careful With Buy Low, Sell HighI invested in a bank decades ago. It later bought a savings and loan association, and ended up in financial trouble due to the savings and loan crisis at the time. Well, I took the advice of a popular local talk radio host and bought several thousand dollars worth of additional shares when it fell to $4 per share. Buy low, sell high, right? I ended up with two nice-looking but worthless stock certificates. E.R., Bonita, Calif.The Fool Responds: Its true that you generally profit in stocks by selling your shares for a higher price than you bought them for. But that doesnt mean its smart to buy any stock just because the price seems low. Those $4 shares might have seemed low, but if a company is in deep trouble, or even facing some short-term issues, they can quickly become $2 shares, or worse.A better way to think about it is to aim to buy undervalued stocks and sell them when they seem reasonably valued or overvalued. Hanging on even longer can pay off, too, if youre confident that it will keep growing over time. FedEx Can DeliverIf youre in the market for a blue-chip stock that can deliver profits to your portfolio, consider FedEx (NYSE: FDX). It has gained roughly 48 percent over the past year, and averaged an annual return of 11 percent over the past 20 years. The sluggish global economy has challenged FedEx, as did this past tough winter. In the companys last quarterly report, earnings fell short of expectations. But there was good news, too. Operating income profit margins rose, and on the companys conference call, management noted that FedExs multiyear profitability improvement plan was not only on track, but probably ahead of plan. FedEx hiked many of its prices by 4.9 percent last year, and cost-cutting measures are underway, too. Along with a workforce reduction, FedEx is improving its efficiency by replacing fuel-guzzling aircraft with smaller and more fuel-efficient models. Its also responding to a growing customer focus on cost over delivery speed, which is fueling growth in its FedEx Ground operations. FedExs stock sports an appealing forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of about 15. Add to that significant growth potential for the company due to burgeoning e-commerce sales, effective profit-boosting initiatives, and managements expected near-term improvements in world trade, and FedEx is looking like an attractive long-term portfolio holding. (The Motley Fool has recommended FedEx in its newsletters.) I was founded in a Palo Alto one-car g ar age in 1938 by two guys whose names I share. (In 1989, the garage was recognized as a California state landmark and the birthplace of Silicon Valley.) In 1956, I introduced my first oscilloscopes, which were an important part of my testing and measurement business. In 1968, I launched what I called a personal computer, the first programmable scientific desktop calculator. My 1981 business calculator, still sold today, became the worlds standard financial calculator. My success with printers began in the 1980s, with the ThinkJet, LaserJet and DeskJet. Who am I? (Answer: Hewlett-Packard) Oops!QCan I correct a mistake on the tax return I filed last month? If so, how? C.R., Flint, Mich.AYup. Fortunately, the 1040 form you file isnt the only one you can file for each year. You can file an amended return with a 1040X form, and you can even amend an amended return later! Errors that definitely require an amended return include ones involving your filing status, income, deductions or credits. Not all errors require amended returns, though. The IRS will often find and correct small math errors. Learn more from the horses mouth at, or at, and note that using tax-prep software, such as TaxACT or TurboTax, can reduce errors. ***QIs it better to use a windfall to pay off my car loan or invest in the stock market? D.D., HonoluluAIt depends. First, if you have any credit card debt, use the money to pay that off. Credit card rates are often very steep and debilitating. Next, compare your car debt with your alternatives. Say your interest rate is 5 percent. If you invest in the stock market, the average annual gain over many decades is about 10 percent, but thats just an average and far from certain. So you need to decide whether youd rather save a definite 5 percent or hope for a 10 percent gain. Consider your risk tolerance and the effect of taxes, too. It can be worth paying a little in interest in order to earn more through stock appreciation. Just make sure youre OK with the risk and are investing for the long haul. Short-term stock returns are unpredictable and can be volatile. Got a question for the Fool?

Copyright (C) 2014 ADVERTORIAL NEW SHOWROOM NOW OPEN2 Blocks North of Mercato Guaranteed Green Thumb locations, but there is a noticeable increase in vitality downtown. All of these business owners are would-be curse breakers, and sometimes they succeed. When they do, its in part because of attitude and tenacity, qualities that are easy to point to but harder to execute. We came into this place with a clean mindset, says Luis Rivera, who retired from a career as a pharmaceutical salesman to do what his father did for 45 years, and with his brother Eddie Rivera open Two Brothers Home Style Cooking, a popping, hopping, bebopping home-style family restaurant with blues and live music in the evenings, and a Spanish-Caribbean, Italian, American nod to spicy fun on the menu. Go strong or go home is our attitude about this, Mr. Rivera says (there were at least two failed efforts on the site previously). We came in here with a new outlook. And, you know, we grind our own meat for the hamburgers and pork for the sausages, and we smoke our pork for 12 hours, and we can give you a filet mignon and the Spainsh rice and beans for $12.95 this is on a street with some high-end restaurants and theyre calling me Crazy Lu. Why? Because whenever somebody is sitting around, I might come in with two-for-one or three-for-one beers, or something. We like to have fun. Along with attitude for successful owners comes experienced calculation and confidence as well. We ran across this spot in Naples, and we knew it had been a couple other places, but we had no angst about it being cursed, recalls Kim Bokamper, describing his start in a location where a Sanibel Steakhouse and a place called The Keg had both struck out. It wasnt Mr. Bokampers first dance he played linebacker and right defensive end for the Miami Dolphins from 1977 through 1985, starting in Super Bowls XVII and XIX, and making the Pro Bowl in 1979. He also knew what we was doing in the restaurant business by the time he got to Naples. He and his staff had opened a Bokampers and polished the concept at earlier incarnations in Fort Lauderdale, Plantation and Miromar. Our thing is to provide a value-oriented menu in an upscale environment, he explains that, and fill a clean, spacious location with efficient servers who often look like they belong on the cheerleading squads of the Miami Dolphins or the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In addition, he puts so many high-definition television screens in his restaurants that he can show every sport, every game, every event, all the time.Recipes for longevityWhen these would-be curse breakers fail, says Mr. Richter, its not always because of location, or because the site is cursed. You have to look at what the place could be, you have to put your business plan in place there, and you have to just stay on it. No matter what your idea is, or what property you want to turn around, you have to stay on it and not give up, he advises. That requires two other factors that some of the downtown Fort Myers businesses couldnt bring into play when he watched them fail in recent years: deep pockets and business management experience. Im involved in The Firestone and others, and weve been playing the turnaround game downtown for some time, Mr. Richter says. I built Spirit of Bacchus when it was on First Street, then we moved (to the Hendry Street location) and stayed on it until we got it right. Now its on an upward trajectory, and Los Cabos Cantina is in that old spot, he says. The cantina is doing well, which is not what happened to previous businesses there. There were two or three Italian restaurants in there that failed, explains Mr. Richter. And not because of the cooking. They failed because of a mix: they lacked experience in business operations, they lacked funding you have to have the proper funding to do it right and so they lacked persistence. Thats why he thinks the very visible castle that started as Dwyers in South Fort Myers and became another failed pub concept built to the tune of more than $4 million is now likely to succeed as the Tilted Kilt. The place includes a much-celebrated new comedy club called Belushis, owned in part by the actor and comedian Jim Belushi. That location has proven to be extremely tough or unprofitable its a unique building, but its in a corridor where its tough to stop and make people smell the roses, Mr. Richter admits. But they have a strong brand, and good concept, and theyre committed, so if somebody can make it work there, it would be them. For a veteran comparison of haunted properties either commercial or residential, Charlotte-area Realtor Tom Weekes, who operates a Keller-Williams partnership with his wife, Gay Weekes, offers this perspective on the previous failure of businesses (or residents) in properties: You need to decide why something failed. There are just too many variables. Failure may be due to lack of marketing and brand awareness in a great location. They may not have known how to hire or train, or maybe they were bad financial managers. Who knows? Location is only one issue and location depends on the trade style. Some dont really need a great location. Sometimes, planning and hard work converge with a little luck. Bokampers in Naples got a little unexpected and very welcome help from the city as well, Mr. Bokamper says. After doing some refurbishing we like an outside bar, so we did that, he notes the city stepped in like a good angel. They added a left turn lane on Vanderbilt, so you dont have to go up to Airport Pulling to turn around, or something its one of the factors that coincided with our opening. Its things like that that can make a difference.

Wood Properties finalized the sale of a 2,000-plus-square-foot home in Naples to Ron and Lisa Mikolinski, he gave back $2,325 of his sales commission to the new homeowners via Homes for Heroes.

Milton Berle Motherhood is a rather austere word for describing the multifaceted state of being experienced by the women who give us life. The broad expanse of the maternal journey is explored in all its humor and joyousness, heartache and unselfishness in a play opening for Mothers Day weekend by Lets Put On A Show Productions in Golden Gate. Motherhood Out Loud offers up the perspectives of the 14 writers who penned the productions 20 brief monologues devoted to such topics as stepmothering, autism, mothers-in-law, transgender children, dementia and gay parenting. Spread out over 90 minutes, the vignettes are divided into five chapters: Fast Births, First Day, Sex Talk, Stepping Out and Coming Home.

Unless, of course, theyre Moms from Hell. Then all bets are off. If the stereotypical portrayals of motherhood on the big and small screen are to be believed, moms are women who live to cook and clean while wearing pearls and heels along with their aprons. Theyre ecstatic about vacuuming. We know reality isnt like that. Thats why its so much fun to see the opposite extreme: mothers who are devious, manipulative, totally unlikeable and unlovable. If our own mother is a little difficult to get along with, well, we can feel relief at seeing some of her quirks reflected on the screen. Or, we can count our blessings that as bad as she is, she isnt asSEE MOMS, C4 BY DON MANLEYFlorida Weekly Correspondent


SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSA primer on aging (and dating) gracefullyI recently sat in the park for a spell, enjoying the sunshine and fine weather. A woman of a certain age came to sit beside me and we shared a few moments in the sun. White-haired and impeccably dressed, she wore flaming red lipstick and had a beauty mark penciled on her right cheek. She was, in a word, fabulous. We chatted about the spring day, the pizza place on the corner, the teenager with pink hair across the street. The woman shifted on the bench, searching for a more comfortable spot, and said to me in a low growl, Never get old. Its a bitch. I had to laugh. Lately, Id been thinking the same thing. Its funny the way age slips up on us. My mother recently cleaned out her spare room and found a stack of photos from the summer of 2010. Not that long ago, in the larger scheme of things, but still I was struck by how much younger I looked. It scares me to think what another four years will do. For the most part, I try not to be vain about aging. When my friends talk about Botox or the latest youth serum, I just roll my eyes. Age is inevitable, I tell them. We cant outrun it, and we certainly cant defeat it. The best we can do is manage its ups and downs with grace and class. Thats what I say in my optimistic moments, anyway. In other, darker times, I curse every person under 30 who calls me maam. I havent been labeled miss in more than two years. I want to weep each time a strangers eyes slide off me, disinterested, and I remember the line from an aging poet once a great beauty who said she didnt need the bag boys at the grocery store to flirt with her, she just wanted them to notice her. Last week I traveled back to my alma mater for a panel where I sat on stage with five other alumni ranging from recent graduates up to, well, me. I was the oldest, sure, but I had on a sexy dress and high heels and I felt certain I could hold my own, even if the students in the audience were the class of 2018. As if in confirmation, one of the other panelists approached me at the reception afterward. He was cute and quirky, artsy and funny. He had on funky socks and trendy glasses, and as we swapped stories about traveling in Europe, I surreptitiously checked out his nametag: Class of 2010, a good eight years younger than I am. I actually (and embarrassingly) thought, Ive still got it. For a brief wondrous moment, I believed that getting older isnt so bad. Then my young friend turned to me in the middle of a conversation about technology and said brightly, I guess when you were here they still had carrier pigeons. He would have done less harm if hed socked me in the gut. But I just laughed, all grace and class. Anyway, I'm sure I could teach him a thing or two.

PAGE 60 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 bad as all that. For this Mothers Day, here are some classic Moms from Hell: dysfunctional movie mothers we love to hate. Mommie Dearest (1981) Joan Crawford, played by Faye Dunaway Type of mother: abusive, control freak When it comes to cinematic mothers from Hell, Mommie Dearest is most likely the first film that pops into peoples minds: The spectacular temper tantrums. The compulsion about cleaning. The endless obsession with appearances. The desire to control everyones life. Based on Christina Crawfords 1978 memoir about growing up as the daughter of Joan Crawford, Mommie Dearest is about the penultimate bad mother. Even those who have never seen the movie know her dictum: No wire hangers! Throw Momma From the Train (1987) Mrs. Lift, played by Anne Ramsey Type of mother: overbearing, demanding, verbally abusive The Pennsylv ania Dutch, with their unique syntax, would say, Throw Momma from the train a kiss. But Owen, played by Danny DeVito, just wants to throw Momma from a train, period. Or rather, hed prefer to have someone else do the dirty deed for him. And when we meet his mother, wonderfully played by Anne Ramsey, we understand: Shes a nag, always yelling, always demanding. She calls Owen names and belittles him, in a voice that sounds like two trains grinding against each other. When Owens creative writing teacher, Larry (Billy Crystal), suggests he watch Alfred Hitchcocks Strangers on a Train for its plot development, Owen has a brainstorm: Hell murder Larrys hated ex-wife for him, and Larry can kill Momma for Owen. When Larry initially declares hes no murderer, Owen optimistically tells him, Just meet her. Maybe shed be somebody youd like to kill. The Manchurian Candidate (1962) Eleanor Iselin, played by Angela Lansbury Type of mother: manipulative, deceitful, incestuous Its tough to write about this classic thriller without giving away the clever and devastating plot twists. Suffice it to say that Angela Lansbury plays a calculating, manipulative mother who wants to see her husband become vice president. As for her son, war hero Major Bennett Marco (Frank Sinatra), well, she wants him to get rid of the competition. And this mother will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Her methods are devious to the extreme. In Richard Condons novel, which the movie is based upon, the mother actually sleeps with the son at one point, but in the movie that was watered down to a kiss, as the director knew it wouldnt get past the censors of the early 1960s. (A remake was made; we recommend the original.) Ordinary People (1980) Beth Jarrett, played by Mary Tyler Moore Type of mother: cold, withholding, perfectionist Mary Tyler Moore is so frosty in Ordinary People she makes you shiver. Her role as Beth Jarrett is 180 degrees away from her cheerful Laura Petrie or Mary Richards personas. In this movie based on Judith Guests novel, Beth has lost one teenage son in a boating accident. Her other son, struggling with survivors guilt, tries to commit suicide. Beth seems much more concerned with image and having things go back to normal than with helping her son heal. She withdraws her affection at the time that he needs it most. This is a mother who is deep in denial and withholds what any child needs most: love and nurturing. Absolutely chilling. Gypsy (1962) Rose Hovick, played by Rosalind Russell Type of mother: stage mother, manipulative, jealous Is there anything worse than a stage mom? They dictate their childrens lives, living out their own fantasies for fame through their offspring. Based on a true story, Gypsy stars Rosalind Russell as the Mama Rose, the uber-stage mom who pushes her two daughters into show business, whether they want to act or not. They start out in vaudeville, but when one daughter eventually runs off, Mama Rose concentrates all her efforts on the remaining, younger daughter, who grows up to be Gypsy Rose Lee. I ask you: What type of mother forces her daughter into stripping? This is the sad story of a woman who feels fame has passed her by and tries to live her life vicariously through her daughter. Postcards From the Edge (1990) Doris Mann, played by Shirley MacLaine Type of mother: narcissistic, competitive, manipulative In Postcards From the Edge, based on Carrie Fishers comic novel of the same name, Suzanne (Meryl Streep) is a young actress with a drug problem. She also has a mother problem: Doris Mann (Shirley MacLaine), an aging star who is much more famous. Doris lectures Suzanne on her drug use, while herself drinking to excess. Wherever Doris is, all the attention has to be focused on her. Even when her daughter sings at a party, she has to follow up by performing a song herself, upstaging her once again. Life with mother is just one big competition for the spotlight. August: Osage County (2013) Violet Weston, played by Meryl Streep Type of mother: cruel, verbally abusive Mattie Fae Aiken, played by Margo Martindale Type of mother: verbally abusive, belit tling August: Osage County, based on Tracy Lettss Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same name, gives us not one, but two abusive mothers. Actually, the whole damn family in this ensemble piece is pretty dysfunctional. But then again, just look at the mother, and you can understand why. Violet Weston (Meryl Streep), who herself had a rough, abusive childhood, is a pill-addicted alcoholic whose acidic tongue cuts her children to ribbons. Im just truth-telling, she insists, as if that makes her cruelty all right. Her sister, Mattie Fae (Margo Martindale) is relentless in belittling her son, whom she still calls Little Charles even though hes a grown man. Cringing in her presence, hes a bundle of nerves, apologetic for even existing. Million Dollar Baby (2004) Earline Fitzgerald, played by Margo Martindale Type of mother: greedy, uncaring In Million Dollar Baby, based on a collection of boxing stories by F.X. Toole, Maggie Fitzgerald (Hilary Swank) wants to become a boxer. It takes her a while to convince Frankie (Clint Eastwood) to be her trainer, but she finally does. Although her mother, Earline, played by Margo Martindale, does not appear in the movie much, when she does, she proves herself to be a totally despicable human being. Earline belittles Maggies dreams and accomplishments. When Maggie earns enough money to buy her family a new home, instead of thanking her, Earline berates her, claiming the house will cause her to lose her welfare payments and Medicaid benefits. When (SPOILER ALERT) Maggie ends up in the hospital, her family actually goes to Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood before going to the hospital to see her. Its obvious this mother doesnt care about her daughters well being and only sees her as a meal ticket. The Sopranos (1999 to 2007) Livia Soprano, played by Nancy Marchand Type of mother: manipulative, passive aggressive OK, technically this isnt a movie; its an HBO series. But it is available on DVD. Livia Soprano, mother of New Jersey mobster Tony Soprano, is so bad, so reprehensible, that we couldnt leave her off this list. She is the mother of all mothers from hell: passive aggressive, wheedling, demanding, manipulative, never happy with anything. When Livia indignantly claims, I dont know what youre talking about, is she simply in denial, growing forgetful, or being incredibly devious? And what mother sanctions a hit on her son? The late Nancy Marchand played Livia Soprano to the hilt. In her final role as an actress, she gave us an unforgettable Mom from Hell we all loved to hate.

Some might relate to their child going off to war and the anguish of wondering of whether the child will come back alive. And others, he adds, will relate to the experience of their parents growing older and the child then becoming the parents caregiver. Mr. Moriarty and Mr. Lilly have taken a slightly different approach to presenting the related vignettes by having the cast act them out rather than read from the script. Conceived by theatrical producers Susan R. Rose and Joan Stein and first staged in 2009, Motherhood Out Loud had an offBroadway run and has been produced around the country. Cast members Rachel Coleman, Asia Johnson, Cheryl Ann Fisher Johnson, Jodi Tagen and Michael Millspaugh have the challenging task of presenting characters of varying ages and stages of life confronting the disparate scenarios.

Florida Repertory Theatres inaugural new play festival, PlayLab, presented readings of five new plays May 1-4. Readings are plays at their most strippeddown: no sets, no special lighting, no costumes. The actors expressively read their lines, holding the script or propping it up on a music stand. Its theater at its most skeletal. PlayLab introduced audiences to brandnew plays and gave them the chance to ask questions and offer comments to the playwrights, actors and directors afterward. As the plays were in various stages of development, the feedback will be invaluable to the playwrights. It was exciting. Heres how my weekend went. Day 1: A day of firsts Day one of the new PlayLab festival, the first play reading and also May 1. I was surprised and a little disappointed at the turnout for the reading of Christopher Parks Journey to Oz. I suspect some people might have thought, Oh, a kids play; I wont be interested in that. Wow, did they miss out. It was wildly entertaining and surprisingly innovative. Mr. Parks writes an experiential type of theater, where audience members become participants in the action. I tell you, it felt better than primal screaming to boo and hiss at the wicked witch, scream in mock fear and make monkey noises (when the flying monkeys appeared). And when Dorothy met the Scarecrow, the actors pulled Florida Rep producing artistic director Robert Cacioppo, resident costume designer Roberta Malcolm and technical director Christopher T. Simpson out of the audience to become crows, making them tuck their thumbs into their armpits, flap their arms like wings and make loud cawing sounds. The play is part improv, because the actors never know how the volunteered audience members will react or what they will say. And thats part of its charm. There were only a handful of children in the audience; two little girls, both adorable, wound up playing Dorothy. But for me, some of the most fun was seeing the adults spontaneously portray some of the roles. Alan Cadkin, who along with his wife, Jacquelin, sponsored the play, threw himself into the unexpected role of Toto, actually getting down on all fours at one point, barking and whimpering on cue. The actors were all great, playing multiple roles. Jacob D. Guinn, an intern at the theater, especially endeared himself to the audience with his impersonation of a flying monkey, speaking in a hiccupping voice. I saw the Andrew Lloyd Webber production of The Wizard of Oz earlier this season at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall. It had costumes, sets, a TV reality show singing star, music and a real dog. But this was a million times more entertaining and creative. It was almost like the Oz version of Pee-Wees Playhouse something for kids but also hip enough to appeal to adults. Commissioned by Florida Repertory Theatre for its Childrens Theatre Series, this play will be performed for school children next season. Im hoping Florida Rep decides to hold a few late-night performances in its studio theater just for adults. Itd be a smart move. Id definitely go see it again. Day 2: The Exceptionals by Bob Clyman Set in the near future, this play examines the ethics of eugenics. It presents us with two mothers, Gwen (Carolann Sanita) and Allie (Alexandra Hale), who have exceptionally intelligent 5-year-old sons, both conceived via a prestigious donor insemination program specializing in creating incredibly smart children. Gwen, beautiful and sophisticated, is uptight and overly concerned with appearances. Allie is the opposite, trying to appear average and downplay her own intelligence. The two tangle with each other when they meet in a doctors waiting room; Allie cant help goading Gwen. Ms. Hale, who was last seen singing and twirling to the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein in A Grand Night for Singing, finally had an opportunity to display her formidable acting skills. She was fun to watch on stage. Sandy Porter, who last portrayed Mrs. Robinson in the Laboratory Theatres production of The Graduate, played Claire, a manipulative doctor who attempts to convince the two mothers to enroll their sons into a special school. She portrayed the role with just the right undercurrent of sinister intent. Mr. Clymans cerebral play questions how far parents should go to try to give their children the best possible futures. Day 3: A double-header Daryl Lisa Fazios Split in Three was presented on Florida Reps Arcade Theatre main stage in the late afternoon. Set in Mississippi in 1969, it examines the lives of two sisters, Nola (Tyler Layton) and Nell (Claire K. Simpson), living in the last segregated county in the state. The sisters are about as opposite as siblings can be: Nell is uptight, religious and bigoted, while Nola is a free spirit who sleeps around and isnt afraid to speak her mind. Ms. Simpson was perfect as the timid mouse sister, and Ms. Layton, who played the scarred photojournalist in Florida Reps production of Time Stands Still last season, was thoroughly enjoyable to watch onstage. They were fully realized characters, not mere mouthpieces for their proand anti-segregation viewpoints of the South at the time. The two have their lives turned upside down when another character, played by Makeba Pace (recently seen in Clyboune Park), comes to town with some disturbing questions. This was the perfect combination of a fully realized, complexly layered play and talented actors who knew how to handle the material. The audience was energized by the play, and most stayed afterward to talk with the playwright, actors and director. The second play of the day, the absursit comedy Mr. Perfect by William Missouri Downs had everyone laughing from the very start, when Katherine Pankow sashayed across the room, reading the stage directions in a sexy voice while flashing sultry looks at the audience. This captivating play opens with a flight attendant, Zooey (Brittany Albury), whos passionate about audio books. When she meets Jeffery (Taylor Murphy Hale) on a flight and realizes hes the man whos the voice behind the romance novels she listens to, the two attempt to join the Mile High Club in the lavatory. Once on land, were introduced to two other characters: best-selling self-help author Donna (Lauren Drexler) and a priest (Ken Johnson) whose church has a series of increasingly odd rules. As things grew more and more absurd, the audience grew giddy with laughter. Mr. Perfect examines our search for love and desire to make meaning in our lives. Florida Rep is contemplating choosing one of PlayLabs new plays for full production to close out next season; I hope its one of these two plays I saw today. Day 4: Rainbows Return by Stephen Mo Hanan The PlayLab festival ended with a comedy that offered some laughs but that seems to need some more development. The action revolves around Rainbow, a San Francisco hippie who goes into a suspended animation meditative trance in a window seat in 1974, promising to return 10 years later. Enid (Carrie Lund) and her obnoxious 15-year-old daughter (Nayda Baez) now live in the house, but Rainbows friends, Donald (Michael Masson) and Leota (Liz Abbott), return to see if hell keep his promise. He does, managing to upend everyones life. Gerritt Vandermeer plays Rainbow with wide-eyed naivete. Ms. Lund gets laughs with just one word or the lift of an eyebrow, but her character and that of her relentlessly sarcastic and snarky daughter need more development. Ms. Abbott, however, playing a loving Earth Mother from Alabama, brightened up the action considerably every time she was in a scene. Her character was so lively and warm, she was someone youd love to hang out with. The play includes some unfortunate stereotypes and slurs, which detracted. For a comedy, I didnt laugh as much as I wouldve e xpect ed. But thats part of the purpose of the festival for playwrights to learn from audience reactions and hone their works. Harli Cooper (on chair) plays The Wizard interrogating characters played by children chosen from the audience in Journey to Oz by Christopher T. Parks.

PAGE 66 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You still need to work out last-minute snags in your dealings with a rival. Hold your ground despite a perceived lack of support. Things should turn around before you know it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Best not to delay preparing for that upcoming family event. The sooner you get things started, the better chance you have of finding potential problems and making needed changes. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The romantic Moon Child might be reluctant to see the reality behind that ideal situation. But by midweek, the practical Crab emerges to help clear away the moonbeams. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Although the Big Cat might be receptive to more purr-suasion to get you to agree to a workplace change, make sure you can distinguish the fine line between facts and flattery. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your positive attitude in the workplace helps to get you noticed by the right people. Now go ahead and use some of that new self-confidence to help shore up a personal relationship. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Although you might still have to work out some problems with a business partner, things go more smoothly on the home front. An investment opportunity might need more study. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Dont be reluctant to act on your suspicion. Even if others see nothing wrong, the astute Scorpio could sense an underlying problem that isnt always obvious on the surface. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A new opportunity presents some obstacles that need to be dealt with as soon as possible. Delaying action in hopes that the problems will go away could be counterproductive. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A friend or family members request might carry some hidden factors that could later create problems. Be sure you know all the facts before you make your decision. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A setback in implementing a plan could turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Use the downtime to rework your original concepts and see where changes could be made. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might not be consciously fishing for compliments, but admit it -wont you feel great when your efforts are noticed? So accept the praise gracefully. You earned it. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Untangling personal problems might take more time than the impatient Lamb expected. But its important to hang in there until all those knotty situations are straightened out.

NoIn Fading Gigolo, writer/director/ star John Turturros script calls for his character to have a thr eesome with adventurous middle-agers played by Sofia Vergara and Sharon Stone. Thats right: The funnylooking Turturro writes himself into bed with bona fide hotties Ms. Vergara and Ms. Stone. Genius. Unfortunately Fading Gigolo doesnt offer much besides admiration for its conceit. Floravante (Mr. Turturro) is a kind, unassuming florist in New York City. His friend Murray (Woody Allen) shocks him with a proposal: Murrays unhappily married dermatologist, Dr. Parker (Ms. Stone), and her best friend Selima (Ms. Vergara) want to have a threesome, and theyre willing to pay for this service. Ever the businessman, Murray pimps Floravante out to Dr. Parker (who wants to try him alone first) and other ladies who crave a nice guy to satisfy their needs. Floravante feels bad about taking advantage of vulnerable women, but its not like they didnt ask for his help. Mr. Turturros dialog rarely feels natural. Instead of flowing with rhythm, they stick and stay with a thud, causing the narrative to plod along rather than thrust forward. This is especially evident as Floravante comforts Avigal (Vanessa Paradis), an orthodox Jew whos been sitting Shiva for two years for her deceased husband. Their bond is intended to be platonic, that of two lonely souls needing a genuine connection, but it feels trite and forced. Theyre not having conversations; theyre speaking in metaphors, platitudes and phony moral righteousness: You bring magic to the lonely, Avigal tells Floravante with faux poetic words that dont fit her personality. Making it worse is the Brooklyn cop (Liev Schreiber) who yearns for Avigal but is too pathetic to deserve her. This guy is a creepy, unnecessary accessory whose only function is to ruin the ending. Ms. Stone, Ms. Vergara and Mr. Allen are here for comic relief, and their jokes hit and miss. Heres the thing: Mr. Turturro, who has a total of six writing credits to his name, should not be writing jokes for Woody Allen. Only Woody Allen should write jokes for Woody Allen. Mr. Turturros jokes play like sad attempts to write Woody Allen jokes: Im your whore, Floravante says. Hey, its the oldest profession, Murray quips. This is followed by the wah-wah failure sound effect in your head. Mr. Turturros message seems to be that carnal pleasures dont buy happiness, and that religious doctrine is too restrictive. Fair enough. Its just really hard to have that in the same movie as a threesome with Ms. Stone, Ms. Vergara and bad Woody Allen jokes. In an apparent attempt to essentially thank Mr. Allen for playing Murray, Mr. Turturro includes a few subtle Annie Hall nods, including a conversation between Floravante and Murray that begins with a long shot as they walk down a sidewalk. And for good measure, theres an homage to Casablanca toward the end as well. Unfortunately, none of these moments make Fading Gigolo any better; in fact, they only serve to remind us how much this movie pales in comparison to the classics. t w h c A h dan >> This is only the second time since Antz (1998) that Woody Allen has had a credited appearance in a lm he did not direct. They other is the little-seen Picking Up The Pieces (2000). LATEST FILMSFading Gigolo

The jumping timeline between past and present doesnt serve the movie well, and the performances are only so-so. Based on a true story. Rated R. Transcendence 1/2(Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman) A terminally ill scientist uploads his brain into a computer and evolves at a dangerously alarming rate. The ending is given away in the beginning, and the second half is a bit too much sci-fi fantasy for its own good. Still, it gives you plenty to think about. Rated PG-13. Rio 2 (Voices of Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, Andy Garcia) Blue (Mr. Eisenberg), Jewel (Ms. Hathaway) their kids and friends venture into the Amazon to find other blue macaws. But instead, they find grave danger and Jewels father. Its only mildly amusing overall, with forgettable songs, jokes that often miss and animation thats merely adequate. Rated G.Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan) Conflict within S.H.I.E.L.D. and an assassin named The Winter Soldier (Mr. Stan) force Captain America (Mr. Evans) and Black Widow (Ms. Johansson) to work under the radar while saving the world. The action is exciting and the story has enough twists to maintain interest throughout. This is everything a solid action movie should be. Rated PG-13.Noah (Russell Cr owe, J ennifer Connelly, Emma Watson) Noah (Mr. Crowe) faces grave moral dilemmas after God chooses him to build an ark to save animals when a forthcoming flood wipes out mankind. The visual effects are impressive, and Mr. Crowe gives the movie all he can. Too bad theres so much going on and so many gaps in logic that it doesnt hold together very well. Rated PG-13.Sabotage (Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Josh Holloway) A DEA task force led by Breacher (Mr. Schwarzenegger) is killed off one by one after the $10 million they stole goes missing. The ending leaves a bit to be desired, but overall its a good story with thrills that keep you invested. Rated R. *Gift cards donated by local merchants.

The Lunchbox 1/2(Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Nawazuddin Siddiqui) In Mumbai, a mistake in the lunchbox delivery service leads to an exchange of letters between a lonely widower (Mr. Khan) and a forlorn housewife (Mr. Kaur). Its from Bollywood, but its not a musical as one might expect. Rather, its the type of calm, thoughtful drama thats appropriately heartwarming and sweet, emboldened by a kind of simplicity not often found in modern movies. Rated PG.The Grand Budapest Hotel (Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori, Owen Wilson) In a fictional European country circa 1932, hotel concierge M. Gustave (Mr. Fiennes) takes the new lobby boy (Mr. Revolori) on a series of adventures. It has the cotton candy visuals and innocence weve come to expect from writer/ director Wes Anderson (Moonrise Kingdom), even when the main characters are being naughty. Rated R.Divergent (Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet, Theo James) In this dystopian future, people live in one of five factions, each based on the persons skill set. When young Tris (Ms. Woodley) doesnt fit into a faction and believes shes under attack, she looks to her love interest Four (Mr. James) for help. The story takes too long to get going and the action is disappointing. Based on the novel by Veronica Roth. Rated PG-13.Muppets Most Wanted (Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell) The Muppets are unwittingly embroiled in a jewel heist while on tour throughout Europe. This is what happens when your tour managers last name is Badguy (Mr. Gervais). The self-deprecating, silly humor, fun songs and cheeky story make this a fun sequel. Rated PG.Better Living Through Chemistry (Sam Rockwell, Olivia Wilde, Michelle Monaghan) Sad-sack pharmacist Doug (Mr. Rockwell) ditches his awful wife (Ms. Monaghan) for a neglected trophy wife (Ms. Wilde) who teaches him how to have fun. Doug goes from pitiable to despicable in a short period of time, and none of it is very entertaining. Not Rated (would be rated R). Pompeii (Kit Harington, Kiefer Sutherland, Emily Browning) With Mt. Vesuvius about to erupt in the ancient city of Pompeii, a slave-turnedgladiator (Mr. Harington) fights for the hand of a noble lady (Ms. Browning) whose family is caught in political turmoil. The effects are hit-and-miss, the acting mediocre and the story predictable. Rated PG-13.

FLORIDA WRITERSMeet a complex and classic crime-fighting prison chaplain Rivers to Blood by Michael Lister. Pulpwood Press. 280 pages. Hardcover. $26.99.This, the sixth John Jordan Mystery by Michael Lister, finds the chaplain/detective sleuthing through a pile of criminality, much of it quite hideous. We immediately learn that an inmate at the Potter Correctional Institute, a state prison on the Florida Panhandle, has escaped with just a few weeks left on his sentence. About to become a free man, why would he put that freedom at risk? John joins others in the manhunt, including members of the sheriffs office headed by his father, Jack. During the hunt in the soggy woodlands, John thinks he hears an airplane engine and catches a glimpse of a plane perhaps headed for a crash landing. Before long, John himself has a crash landing when someone smashes him on the back of his head. Getting back to his feet, he joins others at the prison transport van, where an officer is found bloody and unconscious and his partner is found wearing an inmate uniform. So, where is the inmate? The volunteer Potter County Search and Rescue Team soon becomes involved in assisting the search. With the exception of one individual, the members of this group share the Southern good ol bad boy traits of tough-guy posturing, folksy anti-intellectualism, covert racism and general xenophobia. This is the authors country. The next morning, Potter Correctional Institute psychologist DeLisa Lopez tells John theres a serial rapist attacking male victims both inside and outside the penitentiary and forcing them to sodomize themselves. So what do a falling airplane and a runaway inmate have to do with this latest and most heinous heap of trouble? I dont think Im going to tell you. What I am going to tell you is that in Rivers to Blood, Mr. Lister probes the nature of depravity like no one else. And while he is doing this nastily gorgeous work, he weaves a few other story lines into the tapestry in gorily addictive prose. One under plot has to do with Johns fathers campaign for re-election, a campaign that for the first time finds the proud man rattled by the possibility of losing. Sheriff Jacks vulnerability complicates his portrait as well as that of the Jordan family relationships. Brother Jeff, who shows clear hostility toward John, is LISTER

Their mother, strangely on the periphery of Johns world, needs an organ transplant. Another complication neatly grafted onto the main story line is Johns despairing loneliness. This inner situation, which comes and goes in intensity, derives in large part from his stunted relationship with the woman he loves. The intelligent and beautiful Anna is, like John, emotionally wounded. Both have a desperate need for intimacy and a fear of it. And Anna is married. Not the least of Johns concerns is the new wardens immediate hostility toward him. Bat Matson insists that John give up his law enforcement activities and stick to the chaplain business or else! These personal and familial circumstances color Johns view and pressure his handling of the investigations, giving them additional resonance. They are psychological and spiritual contexts. As much as any other element of storytelling, Mr. Listers creation of a sensory and cultural environment deepens and shades Rivers to Blood. At his best, the authors handling of place reminds me of the great masters and their imagined worlds: William Faulkners Yoknapatawpha County and Thomas Hardys Wessex. The colors of river water, the vegetation, the play of light (and darkness), the very heaviness of the air and the smells of earth are all ingredients mixed and remixed over his many novels set in northern Floridas western limb. From here it is not far to the smells and sounds of moral corruption, the stew of perverse lusts that thrive on nothing so much as the pain and torment of others. As far as I can tell, Mr. Listers readership has not begun to approach the size of his enormous talent. With journals such as Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Reviews praising his work, and with peers like Michael Connelly and Lisa Unger singing his praises, he should be with a major publisher and raking in a fortune. I dont know why that isnt happening. Reader dearest, start reading Michael Lister right now. There is a good-sized shelf of books from which to choose.

KOVEL: ANTIQUES Faux finishes meant to fool can fetch a price in their own right BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVEL Special to Florida WeeklyExpensive woods like teak or mahogany, marble, stone and other materials used to make expensive furniture are often imitated by a painted surface. Faux finishes have been used since the days of ancient Egypt. The Greeks and Romans admired murals that were examples trompe loiel (fool-the-eye) paintings. Life-size objects on tables, half-open doors, stairways and furnishings included in these paintings looked real. The tradition of faux finishes experienced a resurgence in the 19th century. A major Civil War monument with an interior of pink marble walls was restored a few years ago. It was discovered during the restoration that the monuments walls were actually made of white marble painted with a faux finish that made the wall look like expensive pink marble. No doubt it was done to save money and it was so well done it fooled the public. Inexpensive wood used to make furniture has been painted to resemble mahogany, bamboo, teak, birds-eye maple or just decorative graining. Tabletops were improved with a faux marble finish. Talented artists also painted tops with what looked like multicolored mosaic designs. Bamboo furniture was the latest rage in the early 1800s. Bamboo was hard to get in Europe and the United States, so Chinese-style furniture was made with wooden parts shaped like bamboo, then painted with trompe loiel graining. The wooden parts were stronger than real bamboo, so the faked parts often were an improvement. The tradition of painted furniture has continued, and collectors pay a premium for American grained wood country pieces made from 1850 until about 1880. But the finish must be original and in good condition. Q: Can you tell me if the old Franciscan earthenware pattern named Sierra Sand contains lead? A: Franciscan china was fired at high temperatures and is safe, but you can buy a lead-testing kit at a hardware store or online and test it yourself to see if the glaze contains lead. Lead-free glazes have been required on dinnerware sold in the United States since the 1980s. But glazes may contain some lead and still be considered lead free, according to U.S. Food and Drug Administration guidelines. If the pottery was fired at the correct temperature for the right amount of time, the lead fuses to the pottery and does not leach off. While your Franciscan dishes are safe, watch out for any pottery made in Mexico


A faux (fake) bamboo finish was created for this late 19th-century American folding chair. Useful and decorative folding chairs in this style were made using both real or fake bamboo. This chair sold for $180 at a 2013 Neal Auction Co. sale in New Orleans. NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C17 : One-On-OneAlways.

Q: An uncle in Ireland gave us an old clock. The inscription on the face of the clock is Lepaute, Hger Du Roi. It has Roman numerals for the hours and Arabic numerals for the minutes. Do you have any idea how old the clock is and what it might be worth? A: The Lepautes were master clockmakers in the 18th century. JeanAndre Lepa ute (17201789) began making clocks in Paris in about 1740. He specialized in large clocks for public installations and invented several improvements to clocks. He was a Horloger du Roi, a clockmaker to the king, by 1751. His brother, JeanBaptiste (1727-1802), joined him in business in 1759 and became head after Jean-Andre retired in 1774. After Jean-Baptiste died, his nephews ran the business for several years. Some clocks by Lepaute sell for several thousand dollars. Your clock would need to be seen by an expert to determine its value. A very famous 1765 mantel clock has auctioned for $111,462. Q: My father found a metal CocaCola serving tray in the attic of a railroad depot being torn down in Fayette, Mo., in the early 1980s. It has been hanging in my parents home ever since. I have tried researching it but havent had any luck. The tray is rectangular and 24 by 34 inches. It has a green border surrounding a red inner border. In the center is a picture of a woman in a white gown wearing a tiara and holding an open black fan. Her right elbow is resting on an elaborate pedestal with flowers on it. The words on the tray are: Delicious, Refreshing, Drink Coca-Cola, At Fountains 5 cents, In Bottles 5 cents. Can you help? A: Your tray is a reproduction that dates from the late 1960s or 0s. The woman pictured is Lillian Nordica (1857-1914), a famous American opera singer. Coca-Cola used her image on oval serving trays in 1905. A 1975 tray similar to yours, but with a bottle of Coke on the pedestal was made to celebrate the 75th anniversary of an Atlanta bottler. That tray, with a history printed on the back, sells for about $20 today. Other trays like yours have a glass of Coke on the pedestal. Many authorized and unauthorized reproduction and fantasy Coca-Cola trays (a fantasy tray uses an old image but doesnt copy a vintage tray) have been made since the 1970s. They sell for $5 to $75, depending on quality, condition, rarity and whether or not the tray was authorized by the company or a bottler. Tip: Re-glue a dolls wig with rubber cement. Its removable if you later want to change the wig. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Andrews book Flowers in the Attic. Are there plans to turn any more of the books in the series into movies? Steff S., Orange Park, Fla.A: Youre in luck, Steff. Lifetime has indeed filmed the sequel to Flowers, which is called Petals on the Wind. It is scheduled to premiere at 9 p.m. Monday, May 26. If you arent familiar with the books, the film begins 10 years after the Dollanganger siblings have escaped the attic where their mother, Corrine (Heather Graham), and grandmother Olivia (Ellen Burstyn) kept them locked away for more than two years. Petals on the Wind continues to follow the twisted plight of the family, a decade after Cathy (Rose McIver), Christopher (Wyatt Nash) and Carrie (Bailey Buntain) escaped from their grandparents attic at Foxworth Hall. But as they attempt to move beyond their sordid past, they soon discover that certain secrets cant be left behind. Q: I had heard awhile back that Robert De Niro was going to star in an HBO drama series, but I havent seen anything about it since. Do you know if thats still going to happen? Donnie F., via emailA: Well, it is ... and it isnt. The series is still happening, but Robert De Niro wont be involved. Criminal Justice, a sevenhour miniseries based on the BBCs 2008 Peter Moffat drama of the same name, was supposed to star James Gandolfini. When James passed away last June (after already having filmed the pilot), Mr. De Niro was tapped to star in his place. However, he had to pull out due to a scheduling conflict, so John Turturro has stepped in to play the lead, Jack Stone, an unscrupulous New York City lawyer who defends a Pakistani man (Riz Ahmed) accused of murder.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Cafe Alfredo, Galleria Shoppes at Vanderbilt, 2359 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples; 431-8605 Boisterous yet stylish, Cafe Alfredo offers white linens, well-executed dishes crafted in an open kitchen and reasonable prices. A Margherita pizza billed as personal size was ample enough for two and consisted of a crisp, thin crust that held a tasty blend of fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella. Clams casino and mussels in white wine sauce are also good starts to a meal here. Shrimp fra diavolo was satisfyingly zesty, and the veal chop asparagus Parmesan was large with a liberal application of asparagus, marinara and mozzarella. The standout was the lamb shank over pappardelle, featuring fall-off-the-bone tender meat in a savory brown sauce. The tiramisu was delicious and ample for sharing as well. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2013 Eurasia, 8793 Tamiami Trail E., Naples; 352-0888 Chef Ettore Mancini hails from Italy. His wife, who serves as the gracious hostess, has Vietnamese roots. And so they have married their heritages to create the menu at their East Naples restaurant. That means one member of the party can indulge in Vietnamese roasted quail, summer rolls and crepes, while another can tuck into Italian classics. From the Italian options, the hot antipasto provided tastes of clams oreganato, clam casino, baked shrimp and eggplant rollatini. The eggplant was the best of the bunch. Shrimp stuffed with crabmeat was nicely executed as well. Grilled beef with lemongrass had lots of fresh ingredients crunchy bean sprouts, grilled beef, vermicelli noodles but the lemongrass was undetectable. Pho the Vietnamese soup that eats like a meal was popular at other tables and Id order that on a return trip. Tiramisu was large and fluffy and just right for dessert. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2013 Incas Kitchen, 11985 Collier Blvd., Naples; 352-3200 I loved this place when it was just a little hole in the wall. Now that its blossomed into a big, sleek establishment with a full bar and expanded menu, its better than ever. Chef/owner Raphael Rottiers continues to bring Peruvian flavors to American palates in a way that has brought a loyal following to his Golden Gate restaurant. On this visit, I loved the Paracas mussel shooters (shot glasses containing lime juice, rocoto peppers, cilantro, onions and mussels); a spectacular mixed ceviche rocoto apiscado (octopus, calamari, shrimp and fish in a vibrant sauce tinged with Peruvian rocoto pepper and Peruvian brandy); tiradito (escolar in a soy-citrus sauce); fluffy green tamales with cilantro beef sauce; aji tarwi fish (corvina grilled atop eggplant aji amarillo soffrito and purple mashed potatoes); and corvina con tacu tacu (topped with red onions, tomatoes and aji amarillo on a fat cake of rice and lima beans). Lucama cheesecake was a heavenly ending. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2013 Salado Pedros, Gulf Coast Town Center, 9903 Gulf Coast Main St., 314TACO Salado Pedros is not connected to a chain, but still it takes a middleof-the-road corporate approach. Some dishes hit the mark, others fell flat. The tableside guacamole presentation, for example, failed to exploit an opportunity to tailor a truly fresh, vibrant dip to customers tastes. A fried appetizer came out soft and soggy instead of crisp and crusty. You might be better off skipping apps and going straight for a taco sampler of fillings ranging from classic chorizo and al pastor to nuevo Mexicano ahi tuna with bacon and mango pico de gallo. Or try the molcajete carne, a meat-lovers combination of chorizo sausage, strips of steak and chicken accompanied by strips of bell and chili peppers and sweet potatoes enveloped in a lush red tomato-based sauce with hints of chipotle and other chilies all bubbling in a lava-rock bowl. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed August 2013 The Local, 5323 Airport-Pulling Road, Naples; 596-3276 This is a restaurant whose name aptly describes its mission: serving as much farmand sea-to-table food as can be procured from area farms and local waters. Its run by two Culinary Institute of America alums, one of whom also did a stint at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples. The menu is creative, the setting unfussy and the staff friendly and accommodating. Local items are boldfaced on the menu, which changes as availability does. Clam flatbread, featuring Pine Island clams, local tomatoes and herbs on a thin, yeasty crust, was a great starter. So was the snapper ceviche, with locally grown serrano peppers, avocado, red onion, cilantro, golden grape tomatoes and citrus. Grilled gulf-caught cobia with tomato confit and grass-fed short ribs were both simply but expertly prepared. Sides of calabaza squash, crunchy chard and smashed potatoes were all cooked perfectly. For dessert: two mini-sized treats, Key lime panna cotta and bread pudding, both just right. Beer and wine served.

CUISINELamoraga brings sophisticated Spanish tapas to first U.S. locationTheres been a veritable explosion of stunning, well-heeled restaurants opening in Naples in recent months HobNob Kitchen, Cider Press Caf and Avenue5, to name a few. And now, smack on U.S. 41 in what used to be an office building, comes yet another beauty on which no expense has been spared: Lamoraga, a contemporary Spanish tapas restaurant that opened in mid-April. With its soaring ceiling draped in undulating canopies of wooden strips, huge windows, glossy white tables with gleaming silver stands, it makes a statement as soon as you walk in. So does the expansive open kitchen surrounded on three sides by a tapas bar at which you can sit in wide, deeply upholstered chairs and watch the able culinary team do its stuff. The food is as showy as the space and tastes at least as good as it looks. Lamoraga comes to us via Spain, with branches in Dubai and Barcelona and more planned for Madrid, Frankfurt and Budapest. That places the rather diminutive city of Naples among some rather heavy hitters, but I believe its a location thats going to prove highly successful. The concept is one that starts with the timehonored style of tapas small plates that typically feature one appetizer-sized dish each or an assortment of items meant to share and then melds it with contemporary practices and sprinkles in some flavors borrowed from other countries to add a bit of interest. This is not an attempt at all-out fusion, but rather a subtle infusion of interesting flavors when appropriate. And, for traditionalists, there are some large plates, such as baked black cod, grilled salmon, pork shoulder with shiitake mushroom ragout, beef short ribs, an 8-ounce filet and a dry-aged New York strip. But I highly recommend exploring the left side of the menu, wherein lie an assortment of small-plated delights. We worked our way through a number of dishes, starting with the ensalada Rusa (Russian salad, $9), a potato salad studded with olives and bits of tuna. An extremely mild dish, it proved a suitable counterpoint to the more lively berenjenas (eggplant Lamoraga, $12), three small fried eggplants with smoky, crisp skins filled with soft flesh, topped with crisp wobiko flakes and finished with a touch of mirin and honey in which the eggplant had marinated. Lamoraga offers a variety of plates to be shared featuring artisanal cheese and cured meats. Since my companion shuns meat, we opted for the cheeses with sweet quince paste, a fig-port reduction, walnuts and pieces of soft ivory-hued garrotxa, a mild goats milk cheese; crumbles of cabrales, a Spanish blue; and slices of manchego, made with sheeps milk. It was a diverse group of cheeses, which went well with the soft, chewy quince paste, walnuts and the sweet fig reduction. We enjoyed it with a bottle of 2012 Don Olegario albarino, an unusually complex wine with lovely apple, rose and citrus on the nose and palate. (And it was served properly chilled, a delightful departure from many restaurants that deliver it barely below room temperature and expect the ice bucket to do the heavy lifting.) Gamas al ajillo (Andalusian garlic shrimp, $12) came in a little black pan in which the shrimp had been sauted in extra virgin olive oil, garlic, Spanish chilies and parsley. They were perfectly cooked and slightly spicy, with a spritz of fresh lemon juice from the wedge supplied adding just the right brightness to the seasoning. I also enjoyed the brocheta morund (Moorish lamb skewers, $12), two skewers stacked with chunks of tender, marinated lamb accompanied by crunchy quinoa tabbouleh. Lamoraga offers three types of gazpacho: a traditional tomato style it called Andalusian; a cherry version with feta cheese, basil oil and a lovely rosy hue; and a tropical version, an almond, garlic and coconut soup with iced pineapple coulis. Order each one individually and they are $5; order a sampling of three for $6. We liked them all, although I was partial to the tropical version, which was the lightest of the three. We finished with the tartita de higo (fig tart, $9), a warm roasted fig shortbread with pistachio ice cream. The tart was slightly sweet, the crust tender and light; the ice creams intense pistachio flavor perfectly complemented the tart. Service, from start to finish, was excellent. Our server was intimately familiar with the menu and able to offer recommendations. He was also right on top of things in terms of keeping our wine and water glasses filled and ensuring that we were happy with what we ordered. Other members of the staff deftly cleared dishes as they passed by or brought us something if our server was otherwise engaged. It was an impressive display of teamwork from a team that hasnt worked together very long. We never even made it into the lovely cocktail lounge at the far end of the room but could see that it, too, was bustling. I especially enjoyed seeing such a diverse assortment of customers, ranging from 20-somethings out on the town with friends (clad in some truly eye-popping outfits) to young families with children to chic retirees. Clearly, Lamoraga has something for everyone.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY6 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 BEST NEW OLD FLAMESThe Grand Car Menorah ParadeFort Myers has its parade honoring Tommy Edison and his electric light bulbs, but Naples has well, this: the Grand Car Menorah Parade, brought to us for the first time this past holiday season by Chabad Naples and Naples Luxury Imports. We can only hope it was the beginning of a new tradition. As legend will have it, the cars including a 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish, Maserati Ghibli, Maserati Quattroporte, Rolls-Royce Wraith and Bentley Flying Spur had only enough oil for one night, but the parade lasted for eight blocks. A miracle. The noted anti-Semite Henry Ford might not be amused, but Judas Maccabeus (MaccaBMWus?) would be proud.BEST MUTT AND JEFFShaq and AmyAlongside ESPNs Dick Vitale, 7-foot-tall retired NBA player Shaquille ONeal joined ABC-7 morning news anchor (and extremely petite) Amy Sedlacek to support the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County at the Youth of the Year Celebration.

PAGE 92 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY8 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 2014 BEST GRAND REOPENINGThe Promenade at Bonita BayOnce billed as Southwest Floridas hottest spot for shopping, dining and entertainment, the economic downturn almost suffocated this open-air destination marked by tropical landscaping, cascading water and a charming mix of stores and restaurants. But the Promenade is promenading once again, thanks to a renovation of the 106,454-square-foot plaza by R.L.R. Investments, which bought it for $5 million in 2012. So after getting the squeeze from Coconut Point in Estero to the north and Mercato in North Naples to the south, Bonitas merchant Mecca is back and beautiful.BEST SHOT IN THE ARMThe Hertz Corp. Boomers and beyond in Southwest Florida will remember the classic 1960s television commercial in which Hertz put you in the drivers seat, lowering a happygo-lucky couple into an open convertible sedan cruising along a highway, delivering them smoothly from the sky above (check it out on YouTube if you havent seen it). That was cutting-edge visual stuff at the time, and that innovative spirit continues to drive the company, which is moving its international headquarters from Park Ridge, N.J., to a new megacomplex in Estero (with temporary digs set up in Collier County). Expected completion of the move in 2015 brings with it truckloads of local jobs, anticipation throughout the regional business community and plenty of time for Hertz to celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2018 by which time they might be lowering us back into a topless, computer-driven electrocar after a weekend jaunt to the moon.BEST DRILLING BITS #1Opponents of oil drilling in Golden GateWe certainly see the argument against oil drilling in the side yard of the Everglades on purely environmental grounds. But wed like to make a point against it on cultural grounds. Remember, when the Clampetts came upon their oil fortune, they moved to Bever-lee (Hills, that is), bringing with them fancy eatin tables and cee-ment ponds, vittles and cipherin. We fear the equivalent of Grannys spring tonic might not be well received at the Naples Winter Wine Fest.BEST DRILLING BITS #2Garage dentistry in Golden GateThe social contract requires a certain amount of exchange between neighbors: going next door to get a cup of sugar, borrow a yard tool or ask for a jump for a dead car battery. This contract, however, does not extend to visiting your neighbor for dental work. In his garage. We refer, of course, to the Golden Gate man who was arrested for illegally operating a dental practice out of a one-car garage after undercover detectives got a quote from him for an $80 X-ray and cleaning and a $350 root canal. We shall address backyard hair replacement and cosmetic surgery on the lanai at a later date.BEST SEPARATED AT BIRTHSteve Wheeler and Jack OBrienPatty Duke found her twin in an identical cousin. Hayley Mills founds hers in a summer camp cabin (long before the unfortunate Ms. Lohan did the same). And Messrs. Steve Wheeler, left, and Jack OBrien, right, are doppelganging in our seaside city. They laugh alike, they walk alike, at times they even talk alike You could lose your mind. Fortunately for both, neither could have found a nicer person to be mistaken for.BEST TOYS R NOT USJimmy Flynts Sexy GiftsWhen youre as popular a destination as Naples, you tend to attract all the right people. Unfortunately, you also attract some of the others. And while we like sex and toys, we prefer that they be in separate sentences. And separate stores. So when the brother of Hustler magazine founder Larry Flynt closed his Naples gift store last fall after a court defeat, we were well pleasured. And now the acquisition of those special items goes back on the Internet. Where it belongs. Nutty Mixed-Up Salad Box $5 OFF* To order online, use this CODE: 5FRESH*Before taxes and delivery charges.

WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 THE BEST 13NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEST BUSINESS PROMOTERChelsea Birczak, Bonita Springs Area Chamber of CommerceAnyone on the email list of Ms. Birczak, the chambers director of marketing and communications, is greeted daily by an inbox emboldened repeatedly with her name and any number of media releases, photo meet-and-greets, ribboncutting notices and generally positive propaganda promoting the buzzing business climate in the Bonita Springs region. So whats up with Chelsea lately? Here at Florida Weekly, such professional pride in ones work and competence in execution does not go unnoticed nor does it go unrecognized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, which recently rewarded Ms. Birczak and Cindy Burgess, the Bonita chambers director of special events, with its National Institute Scholarship that focuses on leadership training. Its a nice honor for a young executive who campaigns for her chambers members like its nobodys business.BEST SEEK AND YE SHALL FINDGeocachingNeapolitans are wallowing in hidden treasure. The Holy Grail site for cache hunters, lists thousands of seek-and-find mini-loots in Collier County, their names a smorgasbord of whimsy, promise and caution: Dancefloor Palms, Seekin the Beakin, Skeeter Feeder Meter, Between a Lake and a Hard Place, Ghost Orchid and Swamp Ass among them.

And on the second Thursday of every month, its Evening on Fifth, with some of the BEST live entertainment Southwest Florida has to offer all along the avenue.BEST PARTY ON MARCOIBERIABANKs shred partiesWho knew that disposing of unwanted banking and legal documents, bills and other personal papers could be such a good time? IBERIABANK injects enjoyment into the process with the shred parties it hosts every so often in the parking lot at its Marco Island branch.

PAGE 100 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY16 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 2014 BEST PLACE TO BE A HERMITPanther and Dismal KeysThe fringe islands south of Marco Island and north of Everglades City have been home to some of the regions most famed hermits. Juan Gomez of Panther Key reportedly lived to be 123 years of age and died working, tangled in his fishing net. Could the Fountain of Youth be in southwestern Collier County, after all? Hmmm. BEST HANGOUT FOR SENIORSThe new Jewish Family & Community Services senior centerCan you believe Collier County didnt have a senior center before this one opened earlier in the year? The 4,000-square-foot space hosts weekly Lunch & More programs featuring performances such as a jazz band from the Naples Philharmonic and also presents art and computer classes, health lectures and a host of other activities aimed at the 27 percent of Collier residents age 65 and better.BEST MEETING OF THE MINDSThe BROMEOs (Black Retired Old Men Eating Out)Chatting, chuckling, bonding and networking are the order of the day when the BROMEOs get together. These fun-loving guys dont have any formal organization or membership requirements, but its common for 15-40 of them to show up at 10 a.m. on the first Monday of each month for breakfast at the traditional meeting spot, the Perkins Restaurant on Pine Ridge Road.BEST DANCE PARTNERSThe Immokalee Foundation kids and board membersThe Immokalee Foundations Charity Classic Celebration at The Ritz-Carlton Beach Resort traditionally ends with board members and donors dancing with the kids from Immokalee whose futures are so much brighter because of TIF. This year was no different. The energetic teens and their proud mentors/champions/benefactors busted some moves side by side, above, until the band started packing up. NEXT BEST DANCE PARTNERAzul the FGCU EagleThe word on The Bird who soars above his mascot peers is that if the boisterous students at Florida Gulf Coast University athletics contests are the Dirty Birds, then the wingman for FGCUs cheer squads is downright filthy as he fans furor in the stands. As defending Atlantic Sun Conference Most Valuable Mascot, Azul has quite the feather in his cap, and visiting Bears, Hatters, Vikings and the like who try to cause unrest at The Nest and wing it against our most regal Eagle during dance-offs at Alico Arena end up taking flight, costume tails between their legs. And yes, @azultheeagle tweets.BEST SPRING BREAKERSFSU med students in ImmokaleeWorking in the field took on new meaning for a group of Florida State University medical students who spent their spring break on the road with the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile in Immokalee, conducting health screenings at migrant housing camps and in farm fields and church parking lots.

PAGE 102 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY18 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 2014 BEST LOVEBIRDSCalusa and Paleo, the Marco Island bald eaglesThis snow-capped duo have carved out quite a niche for themselves. Since 2003, home for the nesting pair has been a towering Australian pine on an undeveloped Tigertail Court parcel known as the Marco Eagle Sanctuary. Aside from delighting locals, Calusa and Paleo have also become a favorite attraction for visitors to Marco.BEST REASON TO KEEP IT QUIETSee aboveIf Calusa and Paleo could speak, theyd shout, No more fireworks! Please! The state and federally protected birds temporarily abandoned their nest on New Years Eve after fireworks were set off nearby, in the residential area that surrounds the sanctuary. It was the second time since Christmas 2012 that fireworks caused the pair to flee. The most recent occurrence resulted in the egg and fledgling they left behind falling prey to a predatory bird before their return.BEST NEW CULTURAL COALITIONCenters for the Arts of Bonita SpringsIf there was a fine-and-performing-arts black hole between Fort Myers and Naples, there isnt anymore, thanks to the growth of the Centers for the Arts of Bonita Springs. With the Center for the Performing Arts on Bonita Beach Road joining the Center for the Visual Arts on Old 41, beauty, music and drama abound from the walls and stages of the venues that stayed busy all season thanks to hard work and dedication of staff and volunteers, not to mention unbridled support from the community. You might still have to visit the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall to the north or ArtisNaples to the south to see the really big shows, but most of the time especially when you factor in the two prestigious Bonita Springs National Arts Festivals each winter connoisseurs of all things creative will now find Bonita an artistic bonanza. BEST TWEETJohn Henry, owner of the Boston Red SoxLee Countys spring flingers enraged embattled Miami Marlins management when they sent a busload of minor leaguers to Jupiter for a Grapefruit League game in March for which the Marlins had sold surcharged tickets to see the defending Major League Baseball champs. Expressing outrage at Bostons inconsideration after the Marlins had charged their fans top dollar, Miami wanted an apology from the JetBlue jilters. Henry would have none of it, and we twote: They should apologize for their regularseason lineup, the Sox owner unabashedly tweeted to anyone who follows. Namesake John Henry, the SteelDriving Man of American folklore, would appreciate such railing.BEST DAMN STRING BAND IN THE LANDBonita Village String BandOK, truth be told, its not just the best, but its the only local string dance band we know, fashioned after the famous Mummers who perform in the festive New Years Day parade in Philadelphia. Philly stands for philanthropy when it comes to this delightfully quirky band directed by Al Dalton, thanks to the 40 scholarships it has awarded since 1990 to aspiring elementaryand middle-school musicians in Bonita Springs, Naples and Fort Myers for instrument purchases, lessons or music-camp tuition. And when you consider that the talented-and-traditional Bonita Concert Band also calls the Riverside Park stage home, the folding-chair and blanket-spreading music lovers of Bonita enjoy really cool shows for free strings attached.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY22 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 BEST FLIGHT OUT OF TOWNHonor FlightHonor Flight salutes the service of Americas ever-shrinking ranks of World War II veterans by transporting them, at no charge, to Washington, D.C., (up and back in a day on a chartered flight) to see the National WWII Memorial. Each WWII veteran is accompanied by a younger veteran for assistance and companionship. The Southwest Florida branch of Honor Flight funds and organizes two of the emotion-filled trips each year for veterans in Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota, Manatee, DeSoto and Hendry counties.BEST FLIGHT INTO TOWNRoseate spoonbillsWhen the sky turns pink over the Ten Thousand Islands, it might not be the sunset. Nothing is quite as picturesque as when flocks of bright pink roseate spoonbills come to roost among the mangroves. Nature photographer Dennis Goodman is known for capturing the many wading avian species that help make our area so magical. In the photo above, Mr. Goodman captured one of the spectacularly colored creatures seconds before touchdown. BEST TAKEOFFS AND LANDINGSNaples Winter Wine Fest WeekendEver wonder why, during one weekend every February, the grass along a particular stretch of Airport-Pulling Road is littered with cars? Its not an impromptu auto mall. People pull over in their sedans and minivans to see how the other half flies, as Gulfstream jet after Gulfstream jet taxis in and out for the Naples Winter Wine Festival in a showcase of the latest in private luxury aviation. BEST REASON TO GET TO THE AIRPORT EARLYThe Naples Museum of Military MemorabiliaAside from allowing enough time for the normal pre-flight routine, arriving early at Naples Municipal Airport will allow time to visit the Museum of Military Memorabilia. Housed in the commercial service terminal, the museum has hundreds of photos, medals, flight jackets, uniforms, newspaper clippings and more on display from its collection of 10,000 military artifacts dating from the Revolutionary War to Iraq and Afghanistan. The collection also includes relics from wars not involving American forces.BEST ENGINE OVERHAULThe Revs Institute for Automotive Research (formerly the Collier Automotive Museum)Car lovers with an appreciation for automotive history can indulge their passion at the institute, which opened in March. Guided tours of the facilitys 100 rare and important cars are available to the public. With its collection of 1.2 million automotive-related periodicals, photos and books, some dating from the 1890s, the Revs Institute also functions as a research facility for automotive historians, writers and academics.

PAGE 108 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY24 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 2014 BEST MUSEUM YOUVE PROBABLY NEVER BEEN TOThe Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest FloridaAn education in one of the worlds greatest tragedies can be found at the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida. In an unassuming storefront on U.S. 41 in North Naples, the museum contains more than 1,000 World War II and Holocaust artifacts and original photographs spanning the rise of Nazism to the Allied Liberation and the Nuremberg Trials. Lectures, film screenings, special exhibits and other programming advance the museums mission to promote respect and understanding by teaching the lessons and history of the Holocaust and other genocides.BEST SMOOTH FINISHThe Southwest Florida Wine & Food FestivalAfter five years under one director, the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fests new co-chairs, Elaine Hawkins and Dorothy Fitzgerald, choreographed the event to a new level, raising $2.6 million for Golisano Childrens Hospital, Edison State College and Florida Gulf Coast University.BEST LITTLE MUSEUM THAT COULDThe Marco Island Historical MuseumAside from celebrating the Calusa Indians and other aspects of the island and regions rich history, the Marco Island Historical Museum also welcomes community gatherings and hosts public forums, art exhibits, musical performances and even productions of the Island Theater Company. Thats what we call multitasking.BEST I LOVE MY JOBVictor Brown, Marco Islands car wash manVictor Brown is a one-man advertisement for the joie de vivre as he hand-washes and details cars at the Chevron station along Collier Boulevard, Marcos main drag. Mr. Brown has chatted and joked with clients and dispensed smiles and waves to passing motorists from his roadside perch since starting his Car Lab business in 2012.BEST TIME YOULL HAVE RACKING YOUR BRAINThe Giver ChallengeIn Charity for Changes Giver program, Collier County students in grades K-5 spend 28 weeks answering math questions, solving character education puzzles and filling digital banks with coins they are donating to charities they have selected as a class. In Charity for Changes first-ever Giver Challenge for grown-ups, adults attempted these tasks and other brainteasers to see firsthand how students learn about the importance of volunteerism, charities and giving back. Hosted by Vi at Bentley Village, the fast-paced, laugh-filled evening brought out the kid in everyone. Well be happy to step up to the Challenge again next year. BEST DOUBLE TAKECCSOs half-patrol car half-taxi cabThe Collier County Sheriffs Office hasnt gone mad; theyve gone creative in driving home the message that its less expensive to call a taxi after drinking alcohol than it is to attempt driving. The front half of the new vehicle (actually a repurposed patrol car that had done its time on the road) looks like an ordinary patrol car and displays the message: This ride is about $10,000. The back half of the car looks like a yellow cab and bears the message: This ride is about $20. Do the math. Best All-in-One Remodeler AFFORDABLE FLOORING & KITCHENS

WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 THE BEST 25NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEST WAY TO GET DOWN WHILE GETTING AROUNDMacks Karaoke KabWhen cabbie Mack Rose noticed his customers enjoyed singing along to whatever was playing on the radio, he took it to the next level. Now Mr. Rose picks up passengers in his rock n roll ride van thats fully equipped with laser lights and a karaoke system with Bose speakers to keep passengers grooving on the way home from the bar, to or from the airport and wherever, all over Southwest Florida and even across Alligator Alley to Miami. Passengers pick a song on a tablet computer, Mr. Rose calls up the YouTube music and lyrics and the fun begins. Mr. Rose says local college students are some of his BEST customers, jamming to the likes of Miley Cyrus and pop stars, while older passengers lean toward Frank Sinatra songs. Besides the normal taxi cost ($2.50 per mile and 50 cents a minute and tips), theres no extra charge. Mr. Rose, who is 65, says hes retired, and although the cab is profitable, he doesnt consider it work. Check out his rock n roll ride at SIGHT UNSEENThe CCSO stealth carsWhat we say: I didnt know I was speeding, I didnt know I had to make a complete stop and I thought a U-turn was ok. What we mean: I didnt see your patrol car. Collier County drivers will likely be meaning a lot more of that, what with three new subtly marked stealth patrol cars on the road with Collier County Sheriffs Office deputies behind the wheel. Some of us might actually have to stop scoffing at laws lest we end up on a roadside cleanup crew. BEST PLACE TO TOOT YOUR HORNTuba ChristmasFrom Alabama to Wyoming, Alberta to New Zealand, groups of tuba players convene in public places around the world for Tuba Christmas concerts every year. Since starting with a single performance in Rockefeller Plaza in 1974, the concerts seemingly organize themselves in true testament to what the Tuba Christmas website says is a camaraderie envied by all other instrumentalists. Who knew? The Naples event, one of eight that take place in Florida, draws student players, amateur aficionados and professional orchestral musicians together to toot their tubas and euphoniums to the delight of whats always an SRO crowd under the twinkling holiday lights in Sugden Plaza. 2950 Tamiami Trail Naples, Florida 34103 *ONLY WITH ERICK OR ANITACARTER.

PAGE 110 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY26 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 2014 BEST WAY TO LAY DOWN THE LAWHandwriting the TorahTo help celebrate its 50th anniversary, Temple Shalom invited members of its congregation and the general public to put it in writing. With assistance from an onsite sofer, individuals each wrote one letter in the handscribed Torah that will be used on Shabbat mornings, High Holy Days and by Bar and Bat Mitzvah students.BEST THANKSGIVING TRADITIONThe Farm City BBQFor almost six decades, city and country folk throughout Collier County have gathered for the annual Farm City BBQ the day before Thanksgiving. The delicious event raises money for local causes, including 4-H, Youth Leadership Collier, the Junior Deputy League and Key Club. Dozens of civic and business leaders typically dish out the grub to a hungry and grateful crowd. BEST NEW FILM FESTIVALThe Naples Jewish Film FestivalBeth Tikvah of Naples brought the inaugural Naples Jewish Film Festival to town with four screenings at The Norris Center in March. The lineup The Zig Zag Kid, a Dutch film that had played at the Toronto and Boston film festivals; Kaddish for a Friend from Germany; Orchestra of Exiles, a documentary about the extraordinary back-story of the formation of what was to become the Israeli Philharmonic; and the German film Remembrance, an epic romance based on actual events in 1944 Poland and 1976 Brooklyn gave eager audiences cause for laughter and tears and, no doubt, led to deep reflection and thoughtful conversations long after the lights went up after each screening. Were already looking forward to the second annual NJFF.BEST MEMOIRUnremarried WidowWe here at Florida Weekly were proud as anything to have our Sandy Days, Salty Nights columnist Artis Henderson write a book. Unremarried Widow, published by Simon & Schuster in January, recalls her love affair and marriage to Miles Henderson, a soldier who dies in Iraq, leaving Artis a widow in her 20s. The memoir was praised by publications such as People, Elle, Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Review. And not only was it positively reviewed in the Sunday New York Times Book Review, it was also listed in the Times Editors Choice section. BEST BOOK YET TO COMEThe Book of MormonThe Tony Award-winning musical The Book of Mormon is coming to Southwest Florida next season. We couldnt believe it either, when we first heard the news. The show that satirizes religion, and Mormonism in particular, is profane, crude, irreverent and terrifically funny. Were not sure how itll be received in Southwest Florida. In a first, The Book of Mormon will play at both the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers (Jan. 6-11) and at Artis Naples in Naples (Jan. 13-18). 2950 Tamiami Trail N., Naples | 239.919.3552 | California Closet Company, Inc. All rights reserved.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY28 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 BEST ACTRESSKaren GoldbergKaren Goldberg sent chills down our spine as the psychotic, mother-abusing Irish woman in Theatre Conspiracys production of The Beauty Queen of Leenane. As she teetered between reality and fantasy, she creeped us out so well that we left the theater thinking that when we got home that night, maybe we should sleep with the lights on.BEST ACTORCody NickellGulfshore Playhouse artistic associate Cody Nickell has been a sardonic doctor and a megalomaniac actor playing Sherlock Holmes this season, but his role in Jacob Marleys Christmas Carol surpassed anything else hes done. In this one-man show, he narrates the tale and portrays Jacob Marley and 17 other characters, including The Record Keeper (a St. Peter/gatekeeper-type figure), a demon, Scrooge and the Grim Reaper himself. The show was an acting tour de force, magical and enchanting.BEST NEW CHRISTMAS TRADITIONJacob Marleys Christmas CarolGulfshore Playhouse is bringing back Jacob Marleys Christmas Carol (see above) this December. Its well worth seeing and seeing again if you saw it last year. We hope this one becomes an annual tradition in the same way Santaland Diaries has become at Florida Repertory Theatre.BEST NEW THEATER COMPANYLets Put On A Show ProductionsThis troupe takes a no-limits approach to selecting the plays it stages at the Golden Gate Community Center. Kevin Moriarty and Scott Lilly founded the company with the intent of presenting original and lesser-known works, as well as the tried and true. Coming up next: Motherhood Out Loud, which runs May 9-18.BEST TEMPORARY BARThe set for OnceSure, theres no shortage of bars in the region, but our favorite bar this year was the Irish pub that existed for a mere six days as part of the set onstage at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall when the Tony Award-winning musical Once came to town. Prior to the show and during intermission, theatergoers could hang out on stage and order a drink (the bar band kicked ass, too).BEST SURPRISE PERFORMANCERobert CacioppoWere used to seeing Florida Repertory Theatre producing artistic director Robert Cacioppo making announcements from the stage prior to a show (his opening-night curtain speech is legendary). But a murmur ran through the audience in Act III of the companys production of Arsenic and Old Lace when Mr. Cacioppo walked out on stage as Lt. Rooney, a role he first played when he was 17 and in high school in Brooklyn. Although he had done other roles since then, he had not acted onstage for 29 years, making this a rare event indeed.

PAGE 114 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY30 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 2014 BEST NEIGH-SAYERJoey of War HorseJoey, the puppet-horse of War Horse, right, which played at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall this season, was the unmistakable star of the show. Though manipulated by three performers two inside the horse structure and one outside the humans soon grew invisible. Joey twitched his ears, flicked his tail and mane, shook his head, snorted, neighed and did everything else a real horse does. And made audiences fall in love with him.BEST SECOND ACTMyra Janco DanielsNot only is she spearheading the Latchkey League and chairing the capital campaign for the Fran Cohen Youth Center at The Salvation Army of Naples, Myra Janco Daniels is leading the charge to build a worldclass performing arts hall at Ave Maria University. Based on her track record at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts (now known as ArtisNaples), both proposed centers might as well be considered done deals.BEST PLAN B (FLAT)Chad Hoops, violinistA physician can sometimes stand in for another doctor, even in surgery. An attorney can file a brief or make a court appearance for another lawyer. But to find an instrumental soloist to fill in for a symphonic performance, three things are required: They must know the work, they should have performed it recently (ideally VERY recent), and they must be available. When a world-famous violinist took ill over the winter holidays, leaving a void on the Artis Naples stage, Naples na tive Chad Hoops scored perfect on the requirements (although being available meant skirting a blizzard and catching the only flight out of Cleveland). He arrived in time for a morning rehearsal with the orchestra and that night played to a three-peat standing ovation and encore. Bravo, Mr. Hoops. Bravo.

2014 WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 THE BEST 31NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEST POLITICAL MOVEJohn Boehner buys Marco condoMarco Islands cachet no doubt skyrocketed in some quarters with Februarys announcement that Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, had purchased a unit at the Tampico condominiums for $835,000. Mr. Boehner and his wife Deborah have been frequent visitors to Marco and Southwest Florida for years. The luxurious, 14-story Tampico sits along the Gulf of Mexico in the gated Cape Marco community.BEST WORST POLITICAL MOVEFormer U.S. Rep. Trey RadelHe gave up the kingdom for an eightball of cocaine. Having resigned amid scandal, U.S. Rep. Radel left Southwest Florida voters voiceless and impotent for the large part of the U.S. Congress 113th session. By now, all the good jokes have been exhausted and were all still left with a bad taste in our mouths (not to make mention that tingly feeling in our sinuses). We guess he didnt spend enough of his youth listening to rocker Eric Clapton. Too bad. Mr. Claptons iconic Cocaine, ends like this: Dont forget this fact, you cant get it back. Cocaine. Aint it the truth.BEST TV INTERVIEWKellie Burns and Trey RadelAfter being busted for buying 3.5 grams of foo-foo dust, U.S. Rep. Radel got off easy when he appeared at a nighttime press conference and announced that he was going into rehab for alcohol addiction. So when Kellie Burns got another shot at pinning the Congressman down during a satellite interview, she took it. For a full 14 minutes, Ms. Burns grilled Mr. Radel let their shared commeraderie as local TV news anchors be damned and she asked the Congressman questions we all wanted answers to. Sure, the awkward tension was palpable and uncomfortable to watch, but we couldnt pry ourselves away. Did he apologize to the people at a thousand-dollar fundraiser that he had attended after his drug bust? Did he have a dealer in Southwest Florida? At nine minutes in, Mr. Radel tried to pry himself away: I want to give you as much time as possible, but you do need to know that votes have just been called. Votes be damned, too. Ms. Burns kept at him for another five minutes. Her fire and frustration captured the zeitgeist of the electorate. The videos still on YouTube if youre curious.

PAGE 116 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY32 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 2014 BEST CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE WHO GREW UP IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA:NoneLets see. Is it Ben Nelson, the mayor of Bonita Springs? Wilbur Smith or Randy Henderson, the former and current mayors of Fort Myers? Could it be historian Vernon Peeples from Punta Gorda, who already served five terms in the state legislature? The probem is, none of them is running for Congress, nor do they seem to want to, ever. Envelope, please. And the winner is none. The District 19 race, to be decided June 24, is a competition (not much of one) between outsiders Curt Clawson (Republican, grew up in Indiana), April Freeman (Democrat, Michigan) and Ray Netherwood (Libertarian, Tallahassee, which is a country unto itself).BEST GOVERNORReubin AskewHis nickname was Reubin the Good. That says volumes right there. Especially for a politician. He was a Democrat, the party of President Bill Clinton (Slick Willie) and California Gov. Jerry Brown (Governor Moonbeam). On the Republican side, President Richard Nixon was known as Tricky Dicky, and President Rutherford B. Hayes was dubbed Rutherfraud. But Reubin Askew, who died in March at the age of 85, was something else. As governor of Florida from 1971-79, he served with honesty, integrity and the peoples interests at heart. Mr. Askew was a Presbyterian elder who did not drink, swear or smoke. He didnt serve alcohol in the Governors Mansion. Youd be surprised how early people go home when you dont give them alcohol, said Mr. Askew, according to his New York Times obituary. He was, indeed, Reubin the Good, something of a real-life Atticus Finch, maybe our BEST governor ever.BEST WEIRD LANDSIDE ATTRACTIONThe Bay City Walking DredgeIt sits like a giant metal transformer in Collier-Seminole State Park. Built in 1924 and declared a National Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark, the old behemoth, ab ove, did its part to dig and pile muck for Barron Gift Colliers section of the Tamiami Trail, which officially opened in 1928. Read more about it at WEIRD WATERSIDE ATTRACTIONThe Domes of Cape RomanoOriginally a private home constructed by the Tennessee family of Bob and Margaret Lee, the watery domes, above, were once high and dry and connected by wooden decks. They were built with futuristic style and loaded with modern conveniences. Time and definitely tide have taken their toll, turning the dome home into one of the regions most iconic sites for those fortunate enough to explore the area by water.

PAGE 122 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY38 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 2014 BEST HOOPS TEAM NOT CALLED DUNK CITYThe Eagles women While the FGCU mens Dunk City ruled the court in 2013, this year it was the womens team that made waves, qualifying for the NCAA tournament for the second time in three years. The Eagles gals compiled a 26-8 overall record and dominated the first two rounds of the Atlantic Sun Conference tournament. That earned them a trip to the conference title game, where they edged Mercer 72-70. Next stop: the NCAA tournament. Seeded 12th in their region, they faced No. 5 seed Oklahoma State in the first round. FGCU led 52-42 with just under 10 minutes to go. Alas, they lost 61-60 in overtime. It was a tough way for the season to end, but it was a great season. The only thing the womens team needs now is a catchy nickname.BEST FACEBOOK (MIS)QUOTELizbeth BenequistoAmericans have always been creative geniuses. Thats indisputable. We create the BEST democratic republics (the USA), the BEST explorers (Daniel Boone and Neil Armstrong), the BEST Yankee Traders (Cargill and Koch Brothers are one and two on the Forbes list of Biggest Private Companies, with Publix coming in at eight), the BEST storytellers (Mark Twain), the BEST movie makers (The Coen Brothers), the BEST shrimp (Gulf pink) the BEST champions of union, freedom and equal rights (Abe Lincoln and Martin Luther King Jr.) and so on. So theres no reason to think we cant create the BEST quotes that were never utter ed by the BEST presidents who never utter ed them on Facebook, no less the BEST social media outlet ever invented (Mark Zuckerberg). In that spirit, we congratulate State Senate Majority Leader (and former candidate for the District 19 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives) Lizbeth Benacquisto. On Presidents Day, Sen. Benacquisto created the BEST quote by George Washington he never said not even remotely, according to the Mount Vernon Library in Virginia. Happy Presidents Day, Sen. Benacquisto wrote on Facebook. Good to honor our Founders commitment to individual liberty. Great example: 2nd amendment. As George Washington once said, Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American peoples liberty, teeth and keystone under independence. Heres something else George Washington never said: Americans are the BEST at poppycock. If it isnt real, they just make it up. But he didnt have to.

PAGE 124 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY40 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 best2014 BEST RETURN TO HIS ROOTSWarren WrightHe has good TV hair. A slicked coif of jet black, its a helmet made of low-reflection protein that caps a human bottle of showmanship, confidence and intelligence. Mr. Wright was a reporter and anchor for NBC-2 when he first came to Florida in the late s. He went on to serve on the Fort Myers City Council. He spent a decade as a pharmaceutical sales rep (a clichd fallback career for many a TV reporter) before jumping back into the news business at FOX-4. The hair isnt his only asset. He can report, too digging into records, scouring social media and pulling the old rolling-camera-confrontation interview when necessary. BEST WHERES THE BEEF?Cider Press CafIts raw really raw at the Cider Press Caf, where food is cooked to no more than 117 degrees, if its cooked at all. There is no meat, no seafood, no cheese, tofu or bread. But what Executive Chef Johan Everstijn does with organic vegetables, fruits, sprouts and nuts is remarkable, gorgeous, good for you and yes, well say it delicious! This bastion of plant-based, Floridainspired cuisine is fresh and surprising, with dishes such as Seminole corn chowder, walnut chipotle picadillo-stuffed enchiladas and a big sushi-style Florida roll with crunchy jicama replacing the rice. Check it out.BEST HAVE-YOUR-JAZZAND-SUPPER-TOO SPOTAlto at Bayfront PlaceGood food or good music. Until recently, you didnt have much chance of getting both in the same spot. Then chef/entrepreneur Charles Mereday threw open the doors of Alto at Bayfront Place, where the jazz runs hot nightly and the kitchen demonstrates similarly great chops. Modeled after the renowned Zanzibar Blue in Philadelphia (one of Mr. Meredays early gigs and one that has stayed with him), this dinner/ night spot is already drawing well-known musicians and a clientele hungry for whats on the stage as well as whats on the menu.BEST RED-TAPE CUTTERMissi HydeShes one reason people feel less dread going to the DMV office at the main Collier County Government Complex. Those in the know clamor to get in line at Missi Hydes window because of her everhelpful attitude and good oldfashioned kindness. Regardless of how crazy or complicated your situation is, Ms. Hyde will do her BEST to resolve it with compassion, a smile and efficiency, even when or especially when the circumstances would seem to defy it.BEST MIX AND MATCHBellini on Fifth Bellini on Fifths use of mismatched china and dramatic floral arrangements atop stark white linens is just one ingredient in the overall Bellini experience that keeps people coming back for more. Befitting of owner and original executive chef Marias lighthearted, welcoming personality, these one-of-a-kind tablescapes are such a hit that theyve been known to cause a spontaneous game of musical chairs when a diner takes a liking to a specific saucer. BEST REASON TO STOP SMOKINGSo you can make it up and back the Rich King Memorial GreenwayOne of the BEST walking and biking paths in Naples, the Rich King Memorial Greenway stretches from Rattlesnake Hammock Road all the way to Radio Road for a total of six miles round trip. Dogs are welcome, and there are trash bins along the paved walkway, so toss those cigarettes in the garbage and get moving.BEST REASON TO BUST YOUR DIETMeredays Sticky Toffee PuddingWhen Meredays Fine Dining Chef/owner Charles Mereday and Executive Chef Joe Pittman came to town, they brought with them the most ridiculous dessert Naples has possibly ever seen. Their sticky toffee pudding with brown b utter ic e cream is so addictive, it could warrant its own 12-step group.

PAGE 126 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY42 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 2014 BEST WALK-THE-WALK FUNDRAISING EFFORTEcuadorian mountain climbAs board members for St. Matthews House, Naples residents Mari DeWees and husband Andy Bravo wanted to help clients of the charitys residential recovery program do something active and healthy. To fund a tennis program, they teamed up with fellow Neapolitans Jill and Carter Wheeler and Kim Benedict and climbed the Ecuadorian mountain Cotopaxi. Dr. DeWees felt the grueling climb was symbolic of the struggle of those battling drug and alcohol addictions, which added to the trips significance. The effort showed the residents that people cared and raised almost $14,000. That will buy a lot of tennis balls.BEST ILL WILLThe Goodwill clerk in East NaplesAndrew Anderson worked for an organization with a mission to help the less fortunate, but when the 19-year-old clerk took it upon himself to give 50 percent discounts to those he judged to be most in need (and felt very good about it), Goodwill reported him to law enforcement, had him taken to jail and charged with grand theft. The stink of publicity had the store rethink its action and charges were dropped. While Mr. Anderson did lose his job, he likely gained some goodwill for his next one.BEST BLOODLINEK-9s Woody, George and DeweyGreatness that spans generations isnt limited to the human species. Two of the bravest members of the Collier County Sheriffs Office are K-9 officers George and Dewey. Faithfully following in paw-steps of K-9 officer Woody, inset, the German shepherds protect and serve alongside CCSO Det. Daniel Muhlhahn.BEST REASON TO GO WATCH THE GAME WITH YOUR GUYThe mushroom flatbread at BokampersWhile some wives and girlfriends groan when their guys beg them to go to a sports bar to watch a game on TV, women who love to eat jump at the chance to accompany them to Bokampers. This is where mushroom lovers can get some of Naples most fabulous fungi: on the mushroom flatbread that just debuted on the new menu. Made with lots of mushrooms and tangy cheeses, its enough to share but you wont want to.BEST RISING FROM THE ASHESThe Greater Naples YMCAAfter the 2013 Labor Day weekend fire, which was sparked by lightning and damaged more than 70 percent of the building, the Greater Naples YMCA went straight to work raising funds to rebuild the facility and to bring it back even better than ever. Thanks to an outpouring of support in the form of time, talent and treasure from all areas of the community, a new 50,000-square-foot YMCA Healthy Living Center is on target for completion late this year, rendering above.

PAGE 128 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY44 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 2014 BEST BEACH BALLVolleyball at Naples city parksThe white sand beaches at the city pier and at Lowdermilk and Fleischman parks have volleyball courts, and many of them are packed seven days a week with people who have discovered one of the BEST fitness routines ever invented: beach volleyball. The sport tones almost every major muscle in the body. And you dont have to worry about diving to get the ball the sand will break your fall. Visit to find the next game.BEST GUILT-FREE SWEET TREATThe Sunset on Fifth How can you satisfy a craving for something sweet without piling on the calories (and pounds) and suffering the guilt? We suggest the Sunset on Fifth smoothie from Delicious Raw. The brainchild of the owners of the juice bar, the heavenly blend of strawberry, pineapple, orange, almond milk and banana is the sweetest among an amazing menu of healthful juices and smoothies.BEST PLACE TO HOBNOBThe aptly named restaurant and barGone are all the previous establishments Irish gewgaws that somehow never quite fit in on this ohso-chic street. In their place is the hip, contemporary HobNob Kitchen & Bar, the establishment at 720 Fifth Ave. S. that marks the return of veteran restaurateur Michael Hernandez to the tony avenue. The new American restaurant features roomy tables, a sleek bar and interesting spaces that encourage a rapidly growing following to do just what the name suggests: to hobnob mix and mingle in a convivial setting.BEST CLUB SWAGThe Chaine de Rotisseurs We remember a youthful fascination with the jewelry Mr. T wore on his weekly televised A-Team adventures. And our incredulity at the actual wall-clocks the rapper Flavor Flav adorned himself with. So, imagine our delight upon finding a respectable bunch of cosmopolitan Neapolitans who still hit the dress-up trunk for the pins, patches and pendants that make us think less Chaine de Rotisseurs and more Chaines du Round our Necks. Pity the fool, indeed ... BEST DR. JEKYLL / MR. HYDEMillard Brooks, M.D.We love it that anesthesiologist Millard Brooks moonlights as Billy Ray, Trailer Trash Magician, exchanging the crisp white lab coat he wears by day for the wifebeater T-shirt and a Confederate flag bandana he wears as Billy Ray for the comedy/magic gigs he performs at places such as Tin City and the Collier County Fair by night. But what if we had it wrong? What if he was really a redneck magician moonlighting as a medical doctor?BEST NEW CLUB FOR CHARITIESNTEN 501 Tech ClubNFN4Good (, a program of Naples Free-Net, runs the local chapter of this national Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN) in affiliation with Netsquared for employees and volunteers of local nonprofit organizations. During free monthly meetings, organizers and guest speakers present the latest in social media, hardware, online fundraising and other tips that are helpful to organizations of all sizes, especially those without an IT staff.BEST CHEF FOR CHARITYBrian RolandWhen theres a charity event, Chef Brian Roland is most likely in attendance or nearby in some capacity. Whether hes preparing a meal and delicacies for guests consumption, creating an exclusive culinary experience as an auction item or emceeing the event, hes there and hes in all the way.

PAGE 130 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY46 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 2014 BEST EXTREME MAKEOVERFrom McCabes Irish Pub to Avenue5In 1997, Phil McCabe set out to build an authentic Irish pub, and that he did. After 15 years, his eponymous pub at the Inn on Fifth was a Fifth Avenue landmark and local favorite for anyone who wanted to imbibe in Irish food, drink, music and all-around fun. Change was in the air, however, starting with a major renovation/expansion of the inn. Then, on Sept. 1, 2013, McCabes Irish Pub closed to make way for Avenue5, above. The makeover couldnt have been more extreme. Thoroughly contemporary and oh, so sophisticated, Avenue5 attracts clientele to match.BEST FUN IN THE DARKCorkscrew After HoursIts a most civilized boardwalk trek through primeval cypress forests shrouded in dusk. Once a month November-April, Audubon Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary stays open several hours later than usual, allowing guests a rare glimpse of the ancient swamp as it descends into night. There are guided walks and telescopes set up on the boardwalk, as well as live music and work by local artists on display in the pavilion. BEST BIRTHDAY BOYDoug KeatingIf youre going to throw yourself a big birthday party, why not make it count? Thats what Doug Keating, owner of Keating Associates, did in September.

At least you wont have to spend any money getting there.

Natives, newcomers and visitors to Southwest Florida alike are invited to travel back in time at the Collier County Museums Old Florida Festival. This years festival marked the 25th anniversary of the two-day outdoor event. From native Seminole Indians to Spanish Conquistadors, re-enactors and crafters, there was something for all ages to explore and experience. Visit to time travel through Floridas history until you can get to next years festival, that is.BEST PRIVATE SHOPPER ON A SHOESTRINGSalvation Army Thrift Store private shopperIf you love fashion but dont have the patience to sort through racks of clothes, shoes, bags and accessories, the Salvation Army has the solution.

A fashionsavvy shopper volunteer will help you find outfits that fit your body and style and your wallet.BEST R.I.P.Fakahatchee Island CemeteryIn a quiet spot on the lonely, lovely Fakahatchee Island, a cluster of headstones recalls the isolated existence of island pioneers to the area before Collier the county came into existence. Around 1900, the key was home to enough fishing and farming families that they even had their own school. Today only the dead remain, haunting sentinels to an era bygone. BEST WHOLE LOTTERY LOVEErik Monzon, winner of the Florida Lotterys 50X The Cash gameWe know the saying: If you dont play, you cant win. But we also have our own saying: If you want to win $5, buy $10 in tickets. And while Erik Monzon of Immokalee proved adage No. 1, he shattered our No. 2. His $10 ticket netted a super-cool $1 million ($800,000 on the give-it-to-me-now plan). And we are officially working on a new saying.BEST STEPPING-OUT OUTFITGene and MaeBell CrosbyWhen they got dressed to go to the annual Sneaker Ball to benefit the Greater Naples YMCA, the Crosbys took the dress code seriously. Up top, they donned attire perfectly acceptable for any semi-formal fundraising affair. They left the wing-tips and heels in the closet, however, and outfitted their feet in running shoes delightfully dressed-up for the occasion. PLACE TO COOL OFF THIS SUMMER!

This year we spotted him with Rocio DiBella at the annual David Lawrence Center benefit bash and were inspired to create a new Best category. And here they are, our Best Dressed Gala Pair.BEST DRESSED GALA POOCHSophiaSophia is the sartorial Rhodesian ridgeback owned by the equally stylish Cassandra Hill. Together the two turn heads year after year at the Pet Lovers Gala to benefit Humane Society Naples.BEST DRESSED DESIGNER Wilfredo EmmanuelWilfredo Emmanuel is more than just an award-winning interior designer with Clive Daniel Home. When he walks into a room, everyone leans in to see what hes wearing. Word is that no one can tie an Hermes scarf better or faster. As a result, Mr. Emmanuels clients are as likely to seek his advice on how to outfit themselves as on how to furnish their abodes.BEST DRUG PUSHERJohn Morgan The medical marijuana movement has a new face: With his long lashes, a cherubic quality and Southern drawl, John Morgan, perhaps the best-known attorney in Florida (mostly for his For the People commercials), joined the push to legalize medical marijuana in the Sunshine State. Suddenly, Morgan & Morgan ads were pushing medical pot. Mr. Morgans father used the drug when he was sick with cancer, as does his brother, who is quadriplegic. With his deep pockets and instant name recognition, Mr. Morgan took over an advocacy movement that had been foundering. Last year, his team collected more than 700,000 signatures and more recently won the state Supreme Court approval needed to put the measure on the ballot. Come November, voters will decide whether or not to make pot a legal medicine. Now thats grassroots advocacy. GIFT CARD GIFT CARD GIFT CARD GIFT CARD G

The chicken is marinated for 24 hours in 14 Peruvian spices and then slow-roasted on a rotisserie in the massive charcoal oven. The result is a tender, mouth-watering chicken that makes for tasty sandwiches and a healthful alternative for lunch or dinner.BEST DRUNK ACTDebi GutheryLets face it, drunk people are obnoxious. But we loved Debi Guthery in The Naples Players production of The Dr owsy Chaperone. As she stumbled and slurred her way though her knockout number, As We Stumble Along, we learned very quickly that dr owsy is just a polite synonym for tipsy. Make that very tipsy.

2014 WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 THE BEST 55NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEST RECOVERY EFFORTThe merger of Hazelden and Betty FordWere used to mergers between monolithic commercial corporations, each addicted to power and greed. But imagine our puzzlement at news of the betrothal of the countrys biggest addiction treatment centers. Were excited that more people might get the help they need, but were still left with an unanswered question: With the new linkage, do the 12 steps double to 24, or halve to six? BEST DEAD RINGERGeorge Kane as HefWhen guests at the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest spotted a handsome older gent milling about in a silk robe, smoking a pipe and charming the prettiest young women in the crowd, they did a double take and wondered what Hugh Hefner was doing at Miromar Lakes. Its not the first time George Kane of South Fort Myers has been mistaken for the Playboy publisher; in fact, it happened so often, he decided a few years ago to make a career of it. Now Mr. Kane regularly makes appearances at events as Mr. Hefner in his golden years. Making money by posing for pictures with beautiful women at parties. Not a bad gig if you can get it. BEST GATHERING OF OLD HIPPIESYoko Ono: Imagine PeaceThe s arent dead its just that all the former hippies are now in their 60s. And they turned out en masse for the opening of the Yoko Ono: Imagine Peace exhibit at the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery in January. People who remembered Yoko Ono and John Lennons Bed-in for Peace and bought Lennons Imagine album on vinyl when it was first released turned out by the hundreds to see Yokos exhibition of conceptual art. There were tie-dyed shirts and (gray) ponytails on some of the men. Some even stamped the words Imagine Peace on their foreheads.BEST WAY TO GET YOUR 007 ONJet Pack rides Ride a jet pack, one of the coolest new water sports in the state, and you just might start ordering all your drinks shaken, not stirred. Twin geysers of water burst out beneath you like giant faucets at full blast, and before long, youre cruising up to 30 feet above the water. As daredevilish as it sounds, the jet packs have been a hit with young and old alike. Its roughly $150 for a 30-minute ride. Captain CJs Jetpack Adventures offers rides in Naples and North Fort Myers. BEST TRUCK STOP CHAPELPilot Travel CenterIf Jesus drove an 18-wheeler, hed surely stop for a fillup and bit of worship at the Pilot gas station and truck stop at Exit 139 off Interstate 75 north of Fort Myers. An upstairs room at the station makes the place a prayerful pit stop for long-haul truckers and any other road-weary travelers. Pastor Vincent Miller, above, of T ruckstop Ministries Inc. holds service at 11 a.m. every Sunday, but the chapel is open to the faithful 24/7.BEST COMING SOON The reading garden at Baker ParkWhen architect Matt Kragh proposed an adult reading garden in the plans for Baker Park (formerly referred to as the Naples Gordon River Park), literary lovers rejoiced.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY56 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 BEST MIXED CROWDThe Indigo Girls at ArtisNaplesIt was hard to tell if you were at Lilith Fair or a nursing home or a nursing home for Lilith Fair attendees. When folk/rock duo The Indigo Girls came to town to perform with the Naples Philharmonic, about half the crowd who came to see them were lovely geriatric season ticket holders dressed to the nines, while the other half were diehard Indigo Girls fans, mostly ladies in Birkenstocks, blue jeans and very short haircuts, dancing in their seats and shouting out requests. Meanhwhile, the polite classical music aficionados seemed lost on their own turf. BEST REENACTOR ACTORCarlos BichoHe earned a Florida Weekly Best nod last year for his appearances region-wide at public festivals and in school classrooms as the Spanish Conquistador Juan Ponce de Leon in conjunction with Viva Florida!, the 500-year anniversary celebration of our beloved Sunshine State.
