Robert Scotts last letterIn the century or so since British Navy Capt. Robert Falcon Scott ran out of juice on his return from the South Pole and wrote his final letters home while freezing to death in his tent, plenty has been made of him. Not by Floridians, of course, since the last time they had to face a lot of ice was about 10,000 years ago. Floridians are Percy Fawcett people they can understand wandering into the swamp and never coming out again, as that intrepid British Army officer and archaeologist did in the Amazon in 1925. He vanished without a trace while searching for a lost city. But Capt. Scott captured the fancy of much of the rest of the English-speaking world, where he was acclaimed as a hero among heroes for at least half a century. Some biographers suggested later that his poor decisions likely led to the deaths of his men. But more recently Capt. Scott has been celebrated once again for his courage and grace. Circumstance and misfortune defeated him, not arrogance and stupidity, biographers concluded. We took risks, we knew we took them; things have come out against us, and therefore we have no cause for complaint, but bow to the will of Providence, determined still to do our best to the last, he wrote in one near-end letter. That debate about him, however, is not what strikes me as important. Leaders will inevitably err in leading, their advisers will inevitably err in advising, and that doesnt matter-if. It doesnt matter if those leaders behave not just with as much intelligence and force of will as they can muster to complete the mission, but with courage, conviction and compassion toward the individuals in their commands or their communities and I consider communities to be synonymous with countries, with corporations, with states or counties or towns, with military units or road construction crews or any others who are single-mindedly enterprising. In the case of Capt. Scott, a Royal Navy officer willing to take arduous risks to advance his career at a prewar moment when promotions were infrequent, hed been into the ice before, with absolutely no experience of it. Hed made mistakes but survived them, and learned from them. On his extraordinary second journey, he made other errors: He set out with horses that were unfit (he had to shoot them, but he failed to eat them), dogs that turned back and motorized vehicles that didnt make it. Still, he and his men reached the pole on Jan. 16, 1912, only to discover that Roald Amundsen had been there five weeks earlier. Deeply discouraged, they began the trek homeward. They walked 800 miles, drawing to within 11 miles of a food depot, before finally succumbing to starvation, frostbite and the extreme cold. Some of them had died on the way, and with peerless grace. On March 15, 1912 exactly two weeks before Capt. Scott likely drew his last breath, on March 29 Capt. Lawrence Oates walked out of camp alone, disappearing forever into the white emptiness so he wouldnt hamper the expedition. But first he told his companions that he was going for a little walk, adding casually, I may be some time. Eight months after they died, the bodies of Scott and his men were located and buried under a snow cairn marked by a single wooden cross. Historians have drawn at least one uncontested conclusion from his final adventure: Capt. Scott would very likely have survived if he had not slowed down to care for the men who fell ill. But the captain had decided that his team would make it together, or not at all. Everything we should learn from that Victorian world and his act lies embodied in that thinking. Are our leaders looking out for the least of us? For the weakest, the slowest, the oldest, the youngest? Are they bringing up the ill or the struggling among us, as they seek to build our own prosperity and health, and to challenge all of us? If they arent, we should seek new leaders. Because we will not succeed piecemeal; we will only succeed together. Here is Capt. Scotts last letter to his commanding officer, Admiral Sir Francis Bridgeman: My dear Sir Francis, I fear we have shipped up a close shave. I am writing a few letters which I hope will be delivered some day. I want to thank you for the friendship you gave me of late years, and to tell you how extraordinarily pleasant I found it to serve under you. I want to tell you I was not too old for this job. It was the younger men that went under first. Finally, I want you to secure a competence for my widow and boy. I leave them very ill provided for, but feel the country ought not to neglect them. After all we are setting a good example to our countrymen, if not by getting into a tight place, by facing it like men when we were there. We could have come back through had we neglected the sick. Goodbye and goodbye to dear Lady Bridgeman. Yours ever, R Scott Excuse writing, it is minus 40, and has been for nigh a month. f P o n i L roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Once reserved for things that were, well, truly awesome, the word has become a catchall for practically everything. I just discovered a new brand of toilet paper. Awesome! Theres a cat video on YouTube. Awesome! Heather will be in the third grade next year. Awesome! I once attempted to count the number of times that I heard the word used in a single day. I quit shortly after noon, and the tally stood at 44. As noxious as awesome has become, there is a colloquialism that has the potential to become equally as maddening. Thank you for your service (TYFYS) is now the obligatory response when you find yourself in the presence of anyone who has served in the armed forces. TYFYS is especially favored by unctuous television news anchors and pandering politicians, who employ it with scandalous ease. Lets be clear on one point. There is nothing inherently wrong with TYFYS when directed toward someone who has served heroically, honorably or competently. But not everyone who has donned a uniform meets those requirements. And we all too often dont know the military record of those we thank. That devalues the currency of TYFYS. During the 2008 presidential race, John McCain (who deserves an enthusiastic TYFYS if anyone does) held a town-hall meeting. A member of the audience stood to ask a question. He announced, apropos of nothing, that he was a veteran. After that pronouncement, he launched into a bigoted, incoherent tirade that stopped just short of applying the N word to Barack Obama. Sen. McCain chastised the man for his venomous outburst but not before giving the cretin a solemn TYFYS. What started me thinking seriously about the willy-nilly use of TYFYS was an encounter I had recently with a high school classmate named Jimmy, who I had not seen since we graduated in 1967. He told me that sometime after high school, he had been drafted. Amazingly, he was sent to Germany, not Vietnam. His entire military experience, he said, consisted of stamping requisition forms for a couple of hours a day. The rest of the time was spent in beer gardens or in the apartments of sumptuous frauleins, where group sex, hallucinogenic mushrooms and copious amounts of marijuana helped to ease the burden of defending America. Jimmy said his health began to fail in his 40s, and he estimated that over the years he had received hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayer-funded medical treatment from the muchmaligned VA system. Gosh, Jimmy, TYFYS. No one will ever thank me for my service because I never served. A high draft lottery number saw to that.As with George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Bill Clinton, I did not want to go to Vietnam. I was not ashamed to say that then, and I am not ashamed to say that now.Just before the draft lottery numbers were announced, my dad told me: If this were World War II, Id proudly drive you down to the recruitment center. But Vietnam is a different story. Its a phony, made-up conflict. If you have to go, you go and do your best. But lets just pray that isnt the case. This came from a man who distinguished himself in India and Burma during WWII and who retired from the Army Reserves as a full colonel. Several of my friends went to Vietnam. Some came back broken, physically and mentally. At least one didnt come back at all. None of them understood why they were fighting and none supported the war. But they went anyway. Those are the sorts of people who truly deserve a TYFYS. I sometimes feel a twinge of guilt when I think about those who suffered so grievously as a result of their service. Why was I the beneficiary of a crazy spin of Fortunas Wheel that kept me from possibly being thrown into the maw of Vietnam and they were not? The guilt pangs are fleeting, however. The shame that was Vietnam rests not with me but with the likes of Lyndon Johnson, Robert McNamara, Gen. William Westmoreland, Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger. So, I didnt serve, thereby ensuring I will never hear TYFYS. And for me that is just fine. No, it is more than fine. It is awesome. Bill Cornwell is an award-winning journalist who has written for the St. Petersburg Times and Florida Weekly.The war on womenIt has long been suspected that the Supreme Court hates women, although it took the courts 5-4 decision in the Hobby Lobby case to fully reveal its blatant misogyny. The court held that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act forbids the administration from forcing Hobby Lobby an arts-and-crafts chain owned by evangelical Christians to cover contraceptives that its owners object to on religious grounds (specifically, four drugs that it believes act as abortifacients). If you dont see the anti-women agenda at work in this decision, you arent as discerning as the hysterics on the left who point out, accusingly, that the five justices in the majority are all men. QED. Sen. Harry Reid, displaying his unfailing instinct for the inane, tweeted, Its time that five men on the Supreme Court stop deciding what happens to women. The majority leader seems to believe that the court was deliberating in the case of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., et al. v. The Fate of Womens Freedom in the United States. The ruling was quite limited. It didnt strike down the contraception mandate, which represents a sweeping extension of government power. The decision only says that the mandate cant apply to Hobby Lobby and other closely held corporations that oppose it on religious grounds. Of course, Hobby Lobby doesnt have the power to deny its employees the drugs it finds objectionable, nor does it claim such a power. Women who work for the company can buy them on their own. For that matter, Hobby Lobby doesnt claim the right to stop them from having abortions. The women who work for Hobby Lobby have exactly as much choice now as they did prior to the decision. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, passed by Congress in the 1990s with large bipartisan majorities, created a broad protection for religious liberty. It says that government cant create a substantial burden on someones exercise of religion unless it is using the least restrictive means of furthering a compelling government interest. The court held that there are less restrictive means for the government to get women the drugs in question. The left cant get its head around the idea that the law or the Constitution sometimes limits the means whereby it seeks to achieve its ends. The left doesnt really do law. It often doesnt even do reasoning. It does bullying and demagoguery. In the argument over Hobby Lobby, it has brought the logic of the war on women its shameless smear job to the Supreme Court. There are numerous lawful ways around the Hobby Lobby decision. If it wants to get at the root of the matter, Congress can carve out an exception from the Religious Freedom Restoration Act for the contraception mandate, or repeal the act in its entirety. Surely, if liberal lions like Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton had foreseen how the act would eventually get in the way of the lefts coercive cultural agenda, they never would have supported it. But finding a way to eviscerate or kill the act is for another day. For now, inveighing against the sexist Supreme Court is the priority. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

Whatever they have chosen to do, they have stepped out of their routines to discover something new. In some cases, these activities can best be described as hobbies. In others, they are clearly avocations, as serious as an occupation, but without the livable wage. Regardless, having an activity on the side can enrich your life (and those around you) in ways you never dreamed of.Getting out of yourselfLets face it, most of us spend our days in a whirlwind of activity, much of it just busy work, running errands that need to be run, responding to emails that are often inconsequential or just waiting in line or on hold. Having a hobby or avocation frees our lives from our lives. That can and usually does bring peace of mind as well as a sense of stability and balance attributes we know are good for us but that are missing in most of our lives.Becoming creativeI have seen lives transformed through the enjoyment derived from having an avocation. Thats because its impossible to do something you love without becoming creative. You love it, therefore, you want to enjoy it on as deep a level as possible. But little did you know that this desire would naturally spill over to other aspects of your life. Suddenly, you find yourself cutting the lawn with renewed vigor, cooking a meal with a little experimentation, listening to a friend with a deeper understanding. And its all because youve released the creativity within, given yourself permission to have a little fun, even at the risk of making a few mistakes, and to enjoy being happy, even if its over something as simple as writing a really great thank-you note.The social perkWhether its sailing or making jewelry, its impossible to enjoy a hobby without meeting new people. Typically, these are not people you would encounter in your work-a-day life, but people whose endeavors are quite different from yours. Lawyers, gardeners, teachers, bankers, shop clerks all can be thrown together because of a common interest in building model airplanes, say, or singing in a chorus. At the risk of sounding grandiose, there is a minor miracle that occurs when people of diverse backgrounds and disciplines come together through a common interest, and the benefits to your lifes knowledge and joy extend well beyond your interaction with them to virtually every life you touch, including your own.Little legaciesMost hobbies involve making something. In other words, when all is said and done, you have a piece of furniture, a necklace, a journal, something that can not only be enjoyed by you, but that can be passed on to generations coming up. While your ancestors are not likely to find interest in the marketing plan you just wrote at work, they definitely will care about the family tree you researched, the photographs you took of your favorite nature trail, the journal you kept as the lake cabin was being built. Ask yourself, what is it you cherish that has been left to you? Most often it will be something that contains a part of the person who left it, something that they made or wrote or designed. Thats where our true treasures come from.Getting startedHeres the simple part. All you need do is catch yourself the next time you say, I always wanted to and fill in the blank. Whether its learning to play the piano or earning your pilots certificate or taking acting classes, you can do it. Trust me. And forget the excuses. Yes, you have the time. Yes, youre still young enough. Yes, its meant to be. Yes, yes, yes. This is your life, and its waiting for you to live it to the fullest. So start today!

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 10-16, 2014 the observations of people who have known him and reporters who have covered him hes completely devoted to those four women, although he has proven reticent to talk at length about his personal life, or about them, in the past. Especially in public, where he is sometimes seemingly awkward and stiff. Gov. Scotts deep conservatism his desire to conduct politics like business and to stick with what he knows in women or in life is both political and temperamental, a truth Florida Weekly discovered after talking to the Scotts in separate interviews. Here, we offer readers a glimpse of the life and the personality he has shaped. Well before he won the governors race in 2010, the governors apparent discomfort while campaigning was widely noted. His style in those days seemed to suggest that he didnt enjoy talking about much of anything, except jobs and deregulation. Nobody in or out of Tallahassee, where politics is an insiders game and progress depends on alliances, had ever seen anything quite like the governor, who often seemed to operate by dictation rather than conversation, as if he were running a business. And they still havent. What we see in Rick Scott is not only someone totally different from previous governors, but someone who breaks the mold, says Peter Bergerson, a professor of public policy at Florida Gulf Coast University. Past governors, regardless of their party affiliation, have given us a sense that we knew them. And they had a campaign and personal style that was welcoming and warm. They tended to be more gregarious. This was true of some more than others, but they all had it. Well, thats just not Rick Scotts style. His talent is not the ability to mesmerize rooms full of people, or to dazzle crowds with powerful speeches about policy or witty anecdotes about the family Scott. On the contrary, his charm becomes evident in one-on-one conversations. Hes soft spoken but to the point. Hes probably not the kind of guy you sit down and have a beer with. And he thinks for himself. With his positions on core curriculum and teachers salaries, he bucked the (Republican) party there, says Dr. James DeGerome, a retired gastroenterologist in Palm Beach County. The governor charmed Dr. DeGerome by agreeing to endorse his 2011 book, The Cure for the American Healthcare Malady: Socialized Medicine, The Apple in the Garden of Eden. When Bob Rubin met him at a Hanukkah party in Tallahassee, he seemed like someone who didnt care what you were (in status or title), recalls Mr. Rubin, a financial consultant in Palm Beach County. He only cared about what you are as a person. Hes an obvious friend of Israel, which appeals to me, and I like his stand on tuition Im a trustee at Florida Atlantic University. The charm was working. Once it works, it doesnt rub off. But it works best one-on-one. He cant line up a room, he cant work it the way a Charlie Crist or a Jeb Bush would, but a person who meets Rick Scott comes away impressed, says Steve Bousquet, a political and investigative reporter who has covered every governor since Bob Graham, first for the Miami Herald, and now for the Tampa Bay Times. When his mother died in November 2012, it was a sad moment for him, recalls Mr. Bousquet, who knew her and chatted with her on occasion. She was a wonderful person. But as soon as she passed away, he seemed a little more at ease talking about his childhood. The Rev. Kirt Anderson, pastor of the Naples Community Church that the Scotts helped found in 2006, three years after arriving in Florida, describes the governor as an engagingly warm and humble person, on a personal basis. I think hes good at compartmentalizing his life. When hes about business, hes about business. But hes always about Ann, Rev. Anderson adds. The two together theyre fun. But he absolutely defers to her. Part of the reason I acknowledge Ricks humility is because of how he is with his sweet wife. The governors version of all this is simple, as if he had little to do with it. Ive been blessed, he says, using an oft-repeated refrain that the couple shares to describe their 42-year marriage, and life. Blessed in my parents, my wife and my children. And now in my (three) grandchildren.Good choicesHe brought that blessing on himself when he was 18, arguably, by picking a woman just like the woman dear old dad picked: tough-minded, hard working, smart and devoted to him. Equally important, as it turned out, Mrs. Scott is also someone who could handle the home front alone for long stretches of time while he worked and traveled, becoming the primary disciplinarian and caretaker of the children. Being deeply devoted to the women in his life did not mean he intended to spend a lot of time with them. Long uncomfortable with public speaking and public appearances, Mrs. Scott is now emerging to stand, if not behind her man, then certainly by him, as singer Tammy Wynette once advocated. (Floridas first lady is said to favor country music.) I was terrified of public speaking coming into this, she admits, recalling the run-up to the 2010 election. I would never ever keep him from doing anything he wants to do, but when he told me, I said, Sweetie, Im behind you 100 percent, but please dont make me give ANY public speeches. She pauses just a tick, before adding a one-word, roll-your-eyes summary of that plea: Riiight. Like that was going to happen. Now, she has once again performed a wingman role. The governors mother also performed that role when she agreed to make a television ad for him during his first campaign, appearing SCOTTFrom page 1 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYGov.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 10-16, 2014 NEWS A9 on-screen to call him a good boy. At the time, Esther Scott was defending Gov. Scotts integrity. His political opponents questioned both his ethics and his leadership of the giant healthcare corporation, Columbia/HCA, between 1987 and 1997. Either he knew that malfeasance had occurred and should have been prosecuted, or he didnt, which suggests that he was foolish and out of touch with the company he founded and led, critics said. Ultimately, Columbia/HCA was fined and paid as much as $2 billion for Medicare fraud in those years, and Gov. Scott, who famously took the Fifth Amendment and refused to talk about it, was charged with no crime. Friends such as Rev. Anderson and reporters, including Steve Bousquet, were told that he wanted to fight the charges, but the Columbia board opted to settle and pushed him to leave the company, they said. Gov. Scott took a huge retirement package, a golden parachute that included almost $10 million in cash and $350 million in stocks, and went on to a career as a venture capitalist and investor. Now, as his second-term election draws near, the first lady has more prominently entered the public eye, like his mother once did but in this case becoming a warm and articulate advocate for the welfare of children and for literacy, both safe bets that allow her to shine. With her blond hair pulled back, her welcoming smile and straightforward speech laced with just a hint of the Texas twang she grew up with, Mrs. Scott presents a warmhearted and more tender side of the Scott personality that will very likely help her husband Nov. 4, the pundits say. That day, he will discover whether he can become the fifth of 45 Florida governors to serve two terms, or whether the doors will close for him in Tallahassee and history will march on without him the governors mansion. He hates to lose so much, family members and friends have observed, that, I would be concerned for him pastorally, if he does, Rev. Anderson says.How it all startedThe second of five children, Gov. Scott came from a family that was famously working class, and at times poor. But his parents hustled, nonetheless. My dad was an over-the-road truck driver, so when he worked, hed be gone for weeks at a time, Gov. Scott recalls. Born in Illinois the year Dwight D. Eisenhower was elected president, in 1952, he always refers to his adoptive father, Orba Scott, as his dad, only taking the time if necessary to explain that he never knew his biological father. His mother described his father as an abusive alcoholic and divorced him about the time her son, Rick, was born. Mr. Scott a combat veteran of World War II and D-Day who served in the 82nd Airborne Division and therefore might have been expected to be tough was not the principle disciplinarian in the house. It was my mother, the governor says. She was very strict, very rule oriented. It was basically her way or the highway that was the only way she knew how to raise five kids. She had high expectations for us. He has told the story many times: His mother drove him to succeed, both personally and in school. His dad, meanwhile a man who stood about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighed about 230 pounds, he says had only a sixth-grade education. He was just a good guy, a wonderful person, one of the most appreciative people Ive ever known, the governor recalls. Mr. Scott, who died in 2006, was also unemployed sometimes in his sons schoolboy years, which was why the familys car was repossessed and they lived in public housing at one point. His mother worked steadily right through it all, the governor says, clerking for years at JCPenney. All of which, somehow, created an extraordinary alchemy of success for the second son. (Staff members for both the governor and Mrs. Scott did not respond to queries about the governors siblings.) Hes driven to success. He has, ideologically, a Horatio Alger temperament, Professor Bergerson says. Hes a personification of the idealized American dream. He came from nowhere. He did it himself. I think thats a strain that has currency in the political arena today.Right full rudder into marriageIn 1972, when the governor was earning $149.10 per month as a seamans apprentice in the United States Navy (pay grade E-2), he married Annette (Ann) Holland, an Alabaman by birth and a Texan by upbringing whose family had moved north to Kansas City, Mo., where the Scott family had arrived a few years earlier. Hed met her in the library at North Kansas City High School, home of the Hornets, and before long asked her to the senior prom. The couple never looked back, returning to Kansas City after his discharge from active duty to buy first one and then a second Flavor Maid Donut shop. They turned those struggling businesses around in part by delivering large quantities of the product to area patrons. While his mother managed the doughnut business, her son worked his way through the University of Missouri at Kansas City, earning a business administration degree. Its possible that he understood Ann and recognized what she would be from the start, unlike most young men dazzled by their first serious girlfriends. Her father, like the governors parents, was a product of the Great Depression who had been so poor, Mrs. Scott recalled last week, that he had to wear his sisters dresses. And like the governors father, her father was also a combat veteran of World War II who fought in the Pacific, she says. Although her parents were more comfortable than his her father had become a regional manager for Sunshine Biscuits, a Nabisco competitor in those days the lesson and the imperative in her family (where two of her brothers later undertook military service), was simple, she notes: Dont. Waste. Anything. And work hard while youre not wasting it. Which happened to be the lesson that came locked and loaded in the Scott family, too along with a few others, imparted primarily by his mother. Go to church a lot. Become an Eagle Scout (he did). Do well in school, the governor remembers his mother insisting. And if you want any money, we dont have any here, so go get a job, she told us.Looking back, pushing forwardThe Scotts are so fond of remembering where it all started, apparently, that they provide scholarships as part of the charitable work they do not only to her college and his law school alma mater, Southern Methodist University, but to North Kansas City High School, according to the governors online biography. Officials at the high school said last week that those scholarships, about $200 a year for four years to each annual winner, ended in 2008. Asked what advice they have for very young people considering marriage, the Scotts offer slightly different answers. I think the big thing is, you have to make a real big commitment to whoever you marry, the governor says. When youre young you havent had as many experiences, so you have to learn how to problem-solve. And you have to unconditionally love your spouse. I was fortunate in that I married a wonderful person. Mrs. Scotts answer is more direct. Dont get married at 19 or 20 if you can at all help it. Just dont do it if at all possible. Finish your school, get started in your career. And enjoy your time together as a couple, before you have children. Do the same after you have children, as well, she adds. Dont forget yourself as a couple. It was very important to me to do that the kids are going to be grown before you know it, and its just going to be the two of you again. Its good and healthy for kids to see their parents spending time together. So I had a date night one night a week. I insisted on it. I had to have adult conversation, and not be interrupted when I was talking.The working, working lifeLike his truck-driving dad, for many years Gov. Scott was not home a lot. But unlike his dad, perhaps, he was home regularly. During his 30s and early 40s, hed finally emerged from law school at SMU and then from his several-year career at a big Dallas law firm, Johnson & Swanson. There, hed worked 6 hours a day, seven days a week, Mrs. Scott recalls. But instead of slowing the pace down just a bit at his company, Columbia/HCA, he shifted into a higher gear, often convening staff meetings at 6 a.m. on Mondays. That would have been impossible without Ann, who had worked full-time as a legal secretary to help put him through law school, and then later secured a job on campus as she earned her own undergraduate degree at SMU. Shed become a tax accountant before stepping fully into her role as a mother. Following those pre-dawn Monday meetings, hed fly out for the rest of the week to visit the companys satellite locations, which included 365 hospitals and 285,000 employees at its peak, in 37 states. Then hed fly home on Friday night. His daughter, Allison, meanwhile, played soccer for 10 years. During that time, the governor almost always got home at the end of the week to serve as an assistant coach of her team, standing on the sidelines for the weekend games. Mrs. Scott was the team mother. It was teamwork, she explains, describing the familys child-rearing days. It always worked. It was a partnership. My parents were great role models for me, in that I always saw them as a team, too. If one administered discipline, the other one backed her up. There was also set-aside time for fun, and even for personal development. The family took ski vacations together, and both Scotts took flying lessons, with the governor becoming a licensed pilot and Mrs. Scott learning the controls only so that if something happened and I had to fly, I could, she says. I think my favorite movie is Top Gun it might be my husbands favorite movie, too, she adds. That Tom Cruise action picture portrays a cocky Navy fighter pilot who goes to Top Gun school, wins the love of his teacher, suffers a loss of confidence after crashing his jet and killing his best friend and co-pilot, then overcomes it to shoot down enemy planes on the attack, saving everybody. The movie came out in 1986, the year before the governor and his partner, Richard Rainwater, a Texas investor, top-gunned it into the world of privatefor-profit health care giants by forming what became the nations biggest, Columbia/HCA. But back in the daily grind, and in the Scott household in any household, the governor says its partly who you are, and partly who your wife is. I like to let people know what the rules are. I told my daughters what the expectations were, and the consequences, and they could make their own choices. They had jobs when they were growing up, they knew what that was like. So I guess I was more like my mom in raising them.SEE SCOTT, A10 COURTESY PHOTOSRick Scott during his time in the U.S. Navy, above, and Ann and Rick Scott on their wedding day, at left. a i c r T m h p h s s l T d S d C h m s w t s j o r li n g s. ) Hes d riv en be sh in im he se W w l in f R i c an

He just works hard, all the time, still. I love to work, he says simply. Thats not because hes driven, Rev. Anderson says. Work has inherent dignity. Hes not really driven, hes joyful. He works with joy. The joy of work has not abated with time, apparently.Picking up the race paceOn a recent Monday, Gov. Scott, now 61, arose at 4:30 a.m., worked out for more than half-an-hour on a rowing machine and some other equipment, greeted Mrs. Scott (who spends an hour with a trainer early each morning burning not time but calories, she says she aims to shed 400 a workout) and then headed off to the airport. From there, he would fly out to several cities, first to greet police chiefs in Boca Raton, and then to present the Governors Service Medal award to veterans elsewhere, shaking hands all over the state with men and women who had once served. Mrs. Scott planned to meet up with him the next night, she said, where she would continue traveling with him to meet and medal veterans. In the normal course of his Tallahassee day, he says, Gov. Scott will be in his office making telephone calls to the heads of his state agencies by 7 a.m. I ask them how things are going, and I try to keep up with whats happening in all the agencies, he explains. He also shakes hands all the time, sometimes hundreds of times a day, if not more. In the mid-morning if other work allows, Ill start calling on businesses about, Why dont you expand in Florida? Many have, including companies from Europe and Brazil, according to news reports, while Floridas unemployment rate now hovers at close to 6 percent, only slightly below the national average of 6.3 percent reported last week. Then later in the day, like King Solomon, he meets people who ask for his help. They say, Ive got a problem, and I say, Heres what the state can do for you, if we can. But a recent Monday was a little different. It was just five days before Independence Day, and only 127 days before what may be the most important gubernatorial election Florida has seen in many years. After all, in the history of the 21st century, the candidate Florida picks in a presidential election wins. A governor can significantly influence that choice, and the 2016 election now lies on the near horizon. In addition, the politics this time around the governors probusiness, lets get to work message, along with his struggling poll numbers that have only recently come neck and neck with former governor and Democratic challenger Charlie Crists require that he go on the stump, old style. But now he has a little more to stump with. Hes buffed up his message with a recent buffet of environmental and educational packages that will please many in the state. His recordsetting $77.1 billion budget approved in May includes monies for the arts, and for many other long-neglected interests once viewed by the governor as unnecessary icing on the cake. In a state with so many retirees and so many veterans, that brings the governor to the headquarters of Battery B, Third Battalion Air Defense Regiment in Fort Myers on a steamy Monday afternoon. The 6-foot-1 leader of the free Florida world is thanking veterans for their service by draping a medal around the necks of each. After a seemingly hasty speech that recalls his uncomfortable early days politicking, he thanks the large crowd quickly for the freedoms theyve protected: Freedom of religion, he announces with a sudden smile, unable to cite another before moving on. Then he steps out on the floor to meet one veteran after another. He looks each in the eye, smiles, shakes hands, asks a question or two and confers the medal. Gov. Scotts feet disappear into black patent-leather cowboy boots, custommade by the same Texas boot maker, Rocky Carroll, who supplies boots to Texas Gov. Rick Perry, George W. Bush (with whom Gov. Scott co-owned the Texas Rangers baseball team at one point in the 1990s), Sen. Ted Cruz and others. The boots go unnoticed by many, but they add an inch or more of height to the rail-thin frame he has carried since his Navy days. It rides upward through a dark suit, white shirt and red tie, into a long neck and a blue-eyed, aquiline face. That face is crowned by a gleaming dome with sidewalls of hair as closely cropped as a recruits. In his 2010 campaign, reporters learned that he bought his ties at Walmart, which helped earn him the reputation of being miserly. But thats not accurate, because the boots are beautiful. And no doubt costly. He has several pairs, says his wife. On one, theres a hand-tooled 5, because the governor is 45th in the long succession of men who started with Andrew Jackson in the governors office (Jackson was a military governor, unlike the rest). On another pair, the words Viva la Florida appear the celebratory phrase that borrows even the language of the original European invaders. They arrived 501 years ago on the spear-head of new world development in the form of one Ponce De Leon. He was an outsider, too, like the governor. On 146 occasions, at least, and over the course of about 60 minutes, those boots step forward as that face breaks into a dazzling, whitetoothed smile. Thats the image of Scott, with his haircut, the way he dresses, the way he talks its a fundamentalist presentation, says Professor Bergerson. If you watched him on TV and didnt have the sound on, youd wonder whether this guy was an evangelical, or what denomination he was. Nobody else in the hall offers even a hint of a fundamentalist presentation, but all of them seem to appreciate it. The governor is greeting each veteran who has walked, shuffled, stumbled, staggered or limped forward, some with family members, and then waded past a reception line of various Republican leaders, all smiling beneficently and shaking hands as well. Theres state Rep. Dane Eagle from Cape Coral, and state Sen. Lizbeth Benacquisto from Fort Myers, whos running to keep her seat after her failed bid against Curt Clawson to reach the U.S. House of Representatives. There are others. Gov. Scott is not watching them. Hes watching each veteran, carefully, one outsider greeting other outsiders. Its a revealing moment. Because hes an outsider, hes had limited political connections to people around the state, observes Mr. Bousquet. Hes had to build that little by little. Since 2012, when Gov. Scotts popularity hit an unprecedented low, he has worked hard at it, and in some ways he has worked hard to change himself, Mr. Bousquet concludes. Meanwhile, hes running up votes, one hot-afternoon handshake after another, with the clock ticking down. VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYGov.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 10-16, 2014 A15 NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATESomething to whine aboutCalifornia Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo has a huge, 350-student viticulture and enology program, preparing its majors for an industry critical to the states economy (and with a venerable international cachet) but puritanical state law continues to hobble it. Many in Cal Polys four-year wine-making program must arrange for a fifth year after they turn 21 because, otherwise, faculty and administrators could be felons for furnishing alcohol to a minor when they assign students to taste their own class creations. The current California legislative session is considering allowing underage winemaking students to sip and spit. Science on the cutting edge On dairy farms across the country, cows bizarrely queue up, without prodding, to milk themselves by submitting to $250,000 robots that have recently become the salvation of the industry. According to an April New York Times report, this advance appears to be win-win (except for migrant laborers watching choice jobs disappear) more efficient for the farmer and more pleasant for the cow, which constantly pregnant usually prefers frequent milking. Amazingly, cows have learned the drill, moseying up to the precise spot to engage the robots arms for washing and nipple-cupping. The robots also yield copious data tracked from transponders worn around the cows neck. Argentinian agricultural scientists in 2008 created the methane backpack to collect the emissions of grazing cows (with a tube from the cows rumen to the inflatable bag) in order to see how much of the worlds greenhouse-gas problem was created by livestock. Having discovered that figure (its 25-30 percent), the countrys National Institute of Agricultural Technology announced recently that it will start storing the collected methane to convert it to energy. In a proof of concept hypothesis, it estimates that about 300 liters of methane could power a refrigerator for 24 hours. Bioengineers who work with Dictyostelium slime molds held the Dicty World Race in Boston in May for a $5,000 prize and intellectual adulation in August at the Annual International Dictyostelium Conference in Potsdam, Germany. The molds oozed down the 800-micrometer (0.0315 inches) track, lured to the finish line by ordinary bacteria that the molds normally enjoy. A team from the Netherlands beat out 19 others for the coveted prize. (Among the other games scientists play, mentioned in the same Nature.com story is the Prisoners Smellemma, in which players mix obscure samples in a test tube and smell the result to guess what their opponent used.)Artist Diemut Strebe offered his 3-D-printed re-creation of the famous ear of Vincent van Gogh for display in June and July in a museum in Karlsruhe, Germany having built it partially with genes from a great-great-grand-nephew of van Gogh and in the same shape, based on computer imaging technology. (Van Gogh reputedly cut off the ear himself, in 1888, during a psychotic episode.) Visitors can also speak into the ear and listen to sounds it receives. Researchers from the Polish Academy of Sciences, writing recently in the journal Zoo Biology, reported witnessing 28 acts of fellatio by two orphaned male bears at a sanctuary in Kuterevo, Croatia the firstever report of bear fellatio and the payoff from 116 hours of scientific observation over a six-year period. In each case, the researchers wrote, the older male was the receiver, and the researchers speculated that the episodes were less sexual in nature than a reflection of the bears early deprivation of maternal suckling.Defective animals A black-and-white housecat, Lenny, was turned back to a shelter near Rochester, N.Y., in April, only two days after adoption because the new owner could not tolerate Lennys flatulence. (A braver second adopter, even though warned, has taken Lenny in successfully.) When three parrots were stolen from a home in Saxilby, England, in June, the owner provided police with their descriptions, even though all three are African greys, quite talkative and look very much alike. One of the three, however, has asthma and is easily recognized by his chronic cough. Miles Jelfs of Bristol, England, was seeking financial help in April to cover surgery for his hard-luck tortoise, Cedric, whose prolapsed penis (likely from a mating mishap) constantly drags on the ground, partially erect. The fine points of the lawPaul Stenstrom, 62, lived comfortably in his Palm Harbor, Florida, home from 20022014 without paying a penny of his $1,836 monthly mortgage bill, exploiting federal bankruptcy law that forces foreclosing creditors to back off once a debtor files for protection. Mr. Stenstrom and his wife filed 18 separate petitions in that 12-year period, according to an April Tampa Bay Times report, until a judge recently cut them off. The Stenstroms were spotted recently preparing to relocate but Mr. Stenstrom said he was considering buying the Palm Harbor house back (since the price has dropped because of the foreclosure). Leading economic indicators Several professional organizers in New York City told a New York Post reporter that this summer is far busier than in years past for clients who need help packing their kids trunks for summer camp. One consultant, who charges $250 an hour, said it is as if moms fear that the slightest change from home life will stress out their little darlings. Some mothers attention to details include packing the same luxury bedding the campers sleep on at home, along with their special soap and candles and even separate plastic boxes to provide the cuties more storage space.

There is also a smaller ghost orchid getting ready to bloom on the Calusa tree, one of the 12 Landmark Cypress trees identified by Corkscrew in honor of this years 60th anniversary of the saving of its old-growth bald cypress forest. The orchids can be seen from Corkscrews boardwalk using binoculars or a spotting scope. Binocular rentals are available at the admissions desk. Serious photographers should bring powerful telephoto lenses. The staff at the Audubon sanctuary is on orchid watch for blooms on both ghost orchids, and is updating the sanctuary website and Facebook page on a regular basis. Go to www.corkscrew.audubon. org/corkscrewghost-orchid. As of press time, the website reported 15 blooms on the Super Ghost orchid. When it was first spotted June 25, 20 buds were counted. The ghost orchid (Dendrophylax lindenii) is an extremely rare, epiphytic orchid that grows without leaves on the trunks of trees in a small, concentrated area of Southwest Florida. The plants are usually only visible to intrepid adventurers who must hike through hip-deep water in cypress, pop ash and pond-apple sloughs to reach them. People are fascinated by orchids, and the Super Ghost is one of the rarest specimens, says Jason Lauritsen, director of Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. The great appeal of the Super Ghost, Mr. Lauritsen adds, is that it is visible from the public boardwalk and that it has a history of displaying multiple flowers at once and blooming multiple times in succession throughout summer, which gives people more of a chance to get to the sanctuary to see it. Thousands of visitors have made the trip to see the legendary blooms since the Super Ghost was discovered in 2007. The Calusa bald cypress tree that is home to the second ghost orchid at Corkscrew has served as a hub of recent activity. A crew scaled the great trees heights as part of an exploratory survey of Corkscrews old-growth forest. Staff selected the Calusa to identify as much of the flora and fauna as possible on and around this single old-growth bald cypress tree. The project is a pilot endeavor aimed at establishing baseline data, raising future research questions and refining the survey techniques employed by Corkscrews science team. Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary comprises almost 13,000 acres of fragile land owned and protected by the National Audubon Society since 1954. It is home to a 2.25-mile boardwalk and a visitor center with a nature store, tea room and gallery space featuring paintings and photography in rotating exhibits.

He is also an educator, lecturer and author on staff at two major universities. With all of this combined, you can know that Dr. Vlachos will give you the essential, and incomparable, care you need and deserve. Dr. Stacey D. VlachosLEADING IMPLANT SPECIALISTIS IMPLANT DENTISTRY FOR YOU? IS IT PRACTICAL? LONG LASTING? Before you consider the best in restorative dentistry, and before consulting with our staff, let us answer a few of your questions: 1. Implant dentistry is preventive, as well as restorative. It is both esthetic and practical. It can improve your bite, your looks and your self-esteem. 2. Dental implants are long lasting, providing that patients follow routine schedules of dental hygiene and check-ups. 3. Each patient is comfortably sedated and relaxed for the implant procedure. Once completed, discomfort is minimal and easily managed with proper medication and follow-up care. 4. One of the inherent bene ts is that throughout treatment, patients are never without their teeth. DOCTOR G. GORDONDOCTOR C. ASHTONDOCTOR S. VLACHOSTwo members from the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County who displayed outstanding performance throughout the year were rewarded with a session at the world-renowned Kingsley Pines summer camp in Raymond, Maine. Located on more than 100 acres along the shores of Panther Lake, the co-ed camp provides a safe and nurturing environment that challenges each child as they develop a higher level of self-confidence. Campers come from around the country to participate in the life-enhancing and character-building programs. Activities include hiking, sailing, water skiing, tubing, mountain biking, rope courses, soccer, lacrosse and archery. We are very fortunate to be able to send some of our members to Kingsley Pines each summer, says Paul Schultz, vice president of operations for the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for them he says, adding many club members, have never been on an airplane. The life lessons and experiences they receive at the camp are priceless.

TIF programs put 87 graduates on paths to success SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYFriends, family members, school officials, board members, mentors, volunteers and staff from The Immokalee Foundation gathered at Ave Maria University recently to celebrate the achievements of 87 graduates of TIF programs. The 62 high-school students, 13 college students and 12 vocational students were proud graduates of Take Stock In Children, Career Development and Heavy Equipment Mechanics, Immokalee Readers and College Success. Joe Zednik, chairman of the TIF board of directors, welcomed the crowd and praised the students. Tonight, you are also graduating from the TIF programs that have helped guide you toward this day, he said. The Immokalee Foundation, your families, teachers and mentors have taken great pride in helping you succeed and we applaud you for your amazing accomplishments. The accomplishments were indeed many, as 48 of the high-school students are enrolled in a college or university; five are attending a post-secondary vocational-training program at iTECH in Immokalee; and one is entering the military. Among those headed to college is Bernardino Valez, who entertained the crowd with a performance of an original rap song he titled Graduation. With plans to major in performing arts at Florida SouthWestern State College, he is grateful to TIF for the opportunity to move forward in his academic career. TIF helped me to improve my math and reading skills. After-school tutoring helped a lot; it made studying enjoyable and really helped with my ACT, the proud graduate said. Mr. Valezs fellow graduates concurred. Alvaro Soto Jr. said after-school tutoring provided by TIF was instrumental in helping him keep his grades up. They helped me keep on task, he noted. For him, the next step is iTECHs Heavy Equipment Mechanics program, a stateof-the-art curriculum whose graduates are prepared to enter a field in high demand. The program includes instruction for diesel-engine technician, diesel-engine mechanic/technician helper, diesel-drivetrain technician and more. It can be difficult to find a job in Immokalee, HEM instructor Bob Moore said. With the help of TIF, he said, HEM graduates have obtained positions throughout the state of Florida and also in Ocean City, Md.; Atlanta; and Raleigh, N.C. Sisters Gabriela and Elizabeth Hernandez were both celebrating. Gabriela graduated from Immokalee High School and Elizabeth graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University with a bachelors degree in elementary education. They each have big plans for the future: Gabriela, who wants to be a pastry chef, is attending iTECH, and Elizabeth is returning to Immokalee to teach at Eden Park Elementary School. Im very proud that I was accepted into the TIF program, Elizabeth Hernandez said. They helped me meet people, provided great advice and assisted with obtaining scholarships. Abel Jaimes, Immokalee High Schools principal, was the evenings keynote speaker. He grew up in Immokalee so he understands the struggles of many who were in the room that evening. He recognized outsiders who have come into the community and gone above and beyond, such as Linda Ayers, an educator and TIF mentor, and former principal Florence Jelks, both of whom were in attendance. Ms. Ayers said she was very proud of the kids accomplishments. To see their growth and the possibility of what lies ahead is wonderful. Mr. Jaimes also acknowledged his parents for the positive impact they had on his life and emphasized the importance of students having a strong foundation from which to grow and learn. He advised the evenings graduates to, Use your experiences and cultural values and dont be afraid to venture into the unknown. In his welcome speech, Mr. Zednik reminded graduates of TIFs goals. We are committed to providing academic and life-skills support for students through education. We are committed to helping you broaden your experiences and inspiring you to achieve your dreams. This evening may seem as though it is the end of the road, but it is truly only the beginning. You and your family are an important part of The Immokalee Foundation family, and we will do our best to continue to support you in your journey toward economic independence and a successful future. TIF provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences and life skills development leading to economic independence.

Chickee hut dedicated at Youth HavenA new chickee hut at Youth Haven was dedicated recently in a ceremony that honored longtime supporter Lavern Norris Gaynor, who funded the rebuilding of the hut that had been destroyed by Hurricane Wilma. Originally, Youth Haven was the only place in our community that provided for abused, abandoned and neglected children with a safe and nurturing environment, which was so important to me, Mrs. Gaynor said. The new chickee adds to the feeling of home on the campus by creating a sheltered, comfortable, special outdoor space for the children to gather. The authentic chickee hut was constructed by O.B. Osceola Sr. and his family. Mr. Osceola also attended the dedication. Jinx Liggett, Youth Haven executive director, welcomed the crowd and introduced the Youth Haven choir, which performed a song in appreciation to Mrs. Gaynor. Jim Jessee, president of the Youth Haven board of directors, presented Mrs. Gaynor with a gift created by children in the centers art therapy program, a mosaic rendering of the statue Mrs. Gaynor donated more than 30 years ago to Youth Haven. In operation since 1972, Youth Haven is Collier Countys only residential emergency shelter for boys and girls ages 6-17 who have been removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect or abandonment. Youth Haven also provides an array of home and community-based parenting education, child-abuse and substance-abuse prevention programs and onsite and community-based psychological counseling.

Peter Pace, the 16th chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Gen. Pace was keynote speaker this past spring when Leadership Collier celebrated its 25th anniversary. Here are the seven leadership truths he shared: 1. Deciding where you are going to spend your life and with whom is a key early decision. The company you keep is going to change you more than the other way around. Are the leaders in your life ethical, honest, competent and motivated to do good? Today, would you join? If yes, great; if not, you cant get away too quickly.2. Are you in the position and do you have the humility to assimilate new tasks as if they are your own? Many times, we are asked to accept responsibilities we are not fond of doing. If you respond enthusiastically and with alacrity, both you and the job will come out better. 3. Leaders make decisions and sometimes, mistakes. If you arent making mistakes, then you havent been given enough rope. Try not to make the same mistake twice. And after a misadventure, dont fire someone who just got educated. 4. It is easy and non-threatening to ask to be educated. Help me understand assists both the inquirer and the responder.5. Set your moral compass high and keep it there. If you get off track, always think about the eventual consequences.6. If you have integrity, nothing else matters. And if you dont have integrity, nothing else matters. Those without integrity may be well known, but those around them often turn a blind eye. Their behavior tells the story, and sadly, it rarely gets better.7. Everyone influences everyone around them. Take five minutes a day for nonwork conversation. Take care of your people and they will take care of you. Organizations led by people who care are the ones that grow people who care.These seven simple yet profound truths from Gen. Pace are for everyone from members of our military to business, government and community leaders to friends and family to take to heart. I hope you will. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.Ellen Cordoba: A lifetime of service to the underserved BY KAYDEE TUFFSpecial to Florida Weekly Service to the underserved has been a lifetime commitment for Ellen Cordoba. For the past 33 years, that service has been provided to the people of Immokalee through her work at the Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida. Ms. Cordoba started there as an employee health nurse and worked her way up to director of clinical operations, stationed in the Marion E. Fether Medical Center in Immokalee. Her commitment to nursing and the healthcare industry as a whole makes her a role model for her peers. Proficient in English and Spanish, she earned her nursing degree in 1973 from the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minn., and immediately put her education to use as a member of the Peace Corps, serving as head nurse in a rural health clinic in Costa Rica for two years. The experience would set the stage for a lifetime commitment to providing healthcare to underserved individuals. It was in Costa Rica that she met and later married her husband, Juan. To ensure a better life for their family, the couple decided to settle in Collier County in 1976. Ms. Cordoba first went to work as a staff nurse with the Collier County Health Department. Her duties conducting outreach in migrant camps led her to the Healthcare Network (then known as Collier Health Services). At that time, the clinic served migrant workers and rural poor in Immokalee. Today, it serves 32,000 individuals a year with 13 locations throughout Collier County. For more than 20 years, Ms. Cordoba has worked side by side with Dr. Jose Quero, the Healthcare Networks chief of adult medicine. Today she is co-director of the networks HIV clinic, writing policies and procedures among other duties. Dr. Quero and others who work closely with her describe Ms. Cordoba her as fair, diligent, consistent and devoted. She stays on top of the latest treatments by constantly researching advancements in medicine. She is a member of Florida Practitioners in Infection Control and the HIV/AIDS Network of Collier County since 1995 and has served as the Collier County community representative to the regional HIV/AIDS council since 1992. Like the patients she serves, she is no stranger to adversity. She is a breast cancer survivor who lost her husband at a young age and her oldest son to a car accident. She is a very faithful individual with a lot of fortitude, Dr. Quero says. She has no biases or prejudices. She is a true leader.

PET TALES Saving Clayton BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickIn January, a sporting dog rescue group asked Lori-Lynn Clayton of San Angelo, Texas, to go look at a dog in her local shelter thought to be an English springer spaniel or Brittany. He was a springer, emaciated and near death. She struggled to get him released, battling shelter workers and then veterinarians who said it would be better to euthanize him. She got on the phone to Beth Maryan, the north Texas representative for English Springer Rescue America, who agreed to help, and arranged a flight for him with Pilots N Paws volunteer Tyler Chapman to Carrollton, Texas, where he could get the specialized veterinary care he needed. Kim Mrozek stepped up to foster the dog, soon named Clayton, once he was well enough to leave the hospital. No one can quite pinpoint why, but people who saw the dogs picture fell in love with him. As specialists fought to reverse the effects of starvation and dehydration and figure out why his body wasnt absorbing nutrients, people across the country and around the world followed his progress on ESRAs website and then on Facebook, where Ms. Mrozek set up a dedicated page for him called, simply, Clayton. Within 18 hours, the Clayton group had 600 members and eventually rose to 1,759. They called themselves the Clayton Nation. The social-media exposure ensured that Claytons extensive veterinary bills $23,000 for three weeks in intensive care were covered, and then some. Ms. Mrozek estimates that people donated approximately $50,000. It seemed like every time I would post about him, people would go to his ESRA site and start donating money, she says. There were people sending $500 at a time. He had more donations than any special-needs dog ever. Not every pet can be a Clayton, but Christie Keith, social-media manager for the Shelter Pet Project, the Ad Councils public-service campaign promoting pet adoption, says social media is an incredibly powerful tool that has revolutionized the pet-adoption landscape. It enables individuals who dont even work or volunteer for shelters or rescue groups to help spread the stories and photos of pets who need homes or are looking for other kinds of help, she says. They can do this literally with the click of a mouse or a click on their mobile device, and there is no barrier to them being able to get a pet in front of people who arent connected to the rescue or shelter world: their friends, their family, their college roommate. You never know when someone is looking for a pet or when a pets story will inspire someone to adopt. Although his life hung in the balance for two weeks and he needed a feeding tube for two months, Claytons story has a happy ending. Tony and Mary Davies of Durand, Ill., adopted him after following his story from the beginning. They drove to Texas in May to pick him up and on the way back made stops so other Clayton supporters could meet the springer celebrity. He made a smooth transition to life on their 20-acre farm. It is a glorious sight to see this dog who was knocking on deaths door finally get to live the life he deserves, Mary Davies says. When hes not playing with the Davies other dogs or digging holes, though, Clayton keeps busy with important work. He makes appearances at ESRA functions to raise money for other special-needs springers. He is giving back, and we are grateful for everyone who has helped him, Mrs. Davies says. Social networking, including Facebook and YouTube, helped a desperately ill dog survive and find a new home.Social media, networking and dedicated people change rescue and adoptions for the better (239)513-9050 www.drspanaples.com Dr. Spa Dr. Spa Before After $395.00* *With ServiceSalt System From

THE DIVA DIARIESConfessing to an intense summertime fling Summer lovin, had me a blast Summer lovin, happened so fast Summers not even close to over yet, but I have to confess to enjoying an intense, but all too brief summer fling. Sadly, like most flings, it had to end and what started out light-hearted and fun, ended in heartbreak and tears. But, it was a summer romance Ill never forget, because it was my first. As in the first time I ever fell for soccer. It started back in mid-June when I noticed a few friends posting on Facebook about getting together at a local Brazilian restaurant to watch futbol. I know what soccer is and all, but Ive written before about the fact that Id prefer to attend an early morning Amway meeting or drink white zinfandel out of a box rather than have anything to do with sports. As far as soccer goes, I just wasnt into it. I mean, I definitely think its more exciting than watching paint dry, but I dont think its quite as thrilling as watching golf. (And, yes, golf can be somewhat thrilling if theres perchance a playoff on a Sunday afternoon and someone you actually like is playing. But all of these factors coming together is a rare thing, which is why thrilling and golf dont often make it into the same sentence.). However, around three weeks ago, while my husband and I were staycationing on Marco Island, we were leaving the hotel to meet friends for dinner one evening and I noticed the lobby bar was packed with people glued to a bigscreen TV watching soccer. Suddenly a deafening, collective cheer was heard and folks were high-fiving, chest bumping and hugging each other with an enthusiastic, infectious fervor. The USA had scored. And I was hooked. I didnt necessarily understand exactly what was going on, but I do adore a festive atmosphere, and soccer had everything I enjoy in a sport: attractive players, reveling fans and it was SHORT. Unlike American football, it doesnt drag out all afternoon until hopeless boredom sets in. Alas, we had our dinner reservations and all, so I couldnt continue pursuing my newfound flirtation. But when we got to the restaurant, soccer was there, too! I walked away from our table to stand in the bar and watch. I loved that there were cheers not only when the United States scored, but when we prevented the other team from scoring. Cheering rocks. On July 1, however, when USA played Belgium, my harmless flirtation with soccer turned into an emotional commitment. I was in a bar watching with my German friend and my British friend and texting with my Cuban friend who was watching at another bar across town. The place was packed with lawyers and artists and tourists and the best part was that everyone was rooting for the same team. There were fist pumps and applause every time amazing goalie hero Tim Howard blocked a ball from Belgium. And since this was the game that would decide whether the USA would get to continue playing and winning even more adoring soccer converts, we were all on the edges of our seats. Unless something major was happening on screen, we were quietly stressing out, fists clenched, as the clock ticked toward overtime. Well, you know how this ends. And with our teams loss that day, there went my love affair with soccer. The games were fine, but mostly it was the camaraderie and social aspect that made it all so fun and attractive. Im still friends with soccer, though. Im keeping the door open for the summer of 2018 when who knows? we might go all the way. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

Twenty ways to get and keep motivated SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNo matter what you do for a living, the key to success is motivating yourself, each and every day. Most people know that.But what they dont know is that motivation mostly emerges from minor changes in their own behavior. Thats according to business journalist Geoffrey James, author of a daily column for Inc.com and of the new book, Business Without the Bullsh*t: 49 Shortcuts and Secrets You Need to Know, a primer for anyone wanting to be more effective on the job. Here are some of Mr. James tips for how to remain a go-getter, even when the going gets tough: 1. Accept where you are. Life is like those signs that read You Are Here. You can get somewhere else only if you know where you are now. 2. Have goals but remain flexible. No plan should be cast in concrete, lest it become more important than achieving the goal. 3. Avoid weak goals. Goals are the soul of achievement, so never begin them with Ill try Always start with I will or I must. 4. Act with a higher purpose. Any activity or action that doesnt serve your higher goal is wasted effort and should be avoided. 5. Adopt a positive vocabulary. Use strong adjectives (e.g., fantastic) to describe whats good and weak words (e.g., annoying) to describe whats not. 6. Avoid negative people. They drain your energy and waste your time, so hanging with them is like shooting yourself in the foot. 7. Seek out the similarly motivated. Their positive energy will rub off on you, and you can imitate their success strategies. 8. Take responsibility. If you blame (or credit) luck, fate or divine intervention, youll always have an excuse. 9. Stretch past your limits. Walking the old, familiar paths is how you grow old. Stretching makes you grow and evolve. 10. Dont expect perfection. Perfectionists are the losers in the game of life. Strive for excellence rather than the unachievable. 11. Celebrate your failures. Your most important lessons in life will come from what you dont achieve. Take time to understand where you fell short. 12. Dont take success too seriously. Success can breed tomorrows failure if you use it as an excuse to become complacent. 13. Treat inaction as the only real failure. If you dont take action, you fail by default and cant even learn from the experience. 14. Welcome obstacles. You cant grow stronger if youre not lifting something heavy, so savor your problems. 15. Get perspective. Take the time and effort to step back, reexamine your assumptions and find truths that you missed before. 16. Appreciate being alive. Never neglect to marvel at the miracle of conscious existence, which is all too soon over. 17. Relax more often. Spend at least one hour every day doing something just because you enjoy doing it. 18. Experience wonder. Take pleasure in the unexpected and unusual. Without them, life would be tedious and boring. 19. Be playful. The joy of a child still lives inside you; let that child out at least once each day. 20. Give thanks. Experience deep gratitude for all the wonderful things in your life: family, friends, work and play.Getting and keeping motivated puts you in control of your actions and your career, thereby lessening stress, Mr. James says, adding, Even implementing a handful of these changes can have a major effect on your health and your attitude.

Write to Us! Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to Fool@fool.com or via regular mail c/o this newspaper, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Technical or Fundamental?As you learn about investing in stocks, youll run across two key approaches: fundamental analysis and technical analysis. We at The Motley Fool have long favored the former.Fundamental analysts study companies and make investment decisions based on factors such as financial health, competitive advantages, management quality, growth prospects, profitability, price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios and macroeconomic factors. In contrast, technical analysts focus on charts reflecting companies stock price movements and trading volume, and make investment decisions based on patterns they see in them.Fundamental analysts explain that shares of a companys stock represent a piece of a business, and that investors are buying a piece of that companys future cash flow generation. Technical analysts believe that price patterns repeat themselves because we humans react similarly to similar market events so they seek certain patterns. Technical analysts ignore many determinants of a companys performance, including its regulatory environment, country of operations, etc. If two companies, no matter how wildly different, happen to have similar historical charts, a technical analyst will predict similar outcomes f or each. That defies logic, dont you think? Think, too, of the worlds most famous successful investors, such as Ben Graham, Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, John Templeton, Shelby Davis, Philip Fisher, George Soros, David Dreman and John Neff. Despite their different approaches, each outperformed the overall market using fundamental analysis. Its hard to come up with a group of hugely successful investors known for using technical analysis. A 2008 study by New Zealands Massey University tested more than 5,000 technical analysis strategies in 49 different countries. The result? Not one added value beyond what may be expected by chance. A study of Dutch investors found technical investors earned lower returns. You can succeed with a bad strategy, but usually only in the short term and often due to luck. The evidence strongly suggests that buying stocks using technical analysis will lose you money. Large nest eggs can be built over many years using fundamental analysis or simply by investing in lowcost, broad-market index funds. Misjudged AppleMy dumbest investment was not buying Apple. I considered doing so when the stock was at $93, but I thought that was too high. Tony, onlineThe Fool Responds: Ouch. Youre probably painfully aware that Apple stock has recently been trading near $90 per share and thats after a 7-for-1 stock split. The split-adjusted price you were considering it at is about $13, so you missed a gain of almost 600 percent. If you werent confident in the companys future, though, you were right not to buy. Remember that any stocks price alone doesnt tell you much. A $400 stock can be a bargain, and a stock that has recently tripled might still keep growing. You need to consider how rapidly its revenue and earnings (and, ideally, profit margins) are growing, what its growth prospects are, and how attractive its price is relative to various measures such as earnings, via the price-to-earnings ratio. Apples stock might still seem pricey to some, but its P/E ratio was recently only near 15, and it offered a 2.1 percent dividend yield, too. (The Motley Fool owns and has recommended Apple shares.) Kicking Hertzs TiresIf you have a parking spot to fill in your long-term portfolio, consider Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE: HTZ). Accounting problems have pressured the stock and may potentially delay the spinoff of its equipment business, but theres a lot to like in Hertz.Hertz will be restating its past three years of financial reports. Thats not great news, but it could be worse. First off, the restatement is focusing on expenses, not aggressive revenue recognition policies or anything that suggests dramatic wrongdoing. Revenue growth, which is critical, will not change.With the car-rental industry consolidating in recent years, having fewer competitors can prop up prices and profit margins for Hertz. (Hertz has participated in the consolidation, buying Dollar Thrifty last year for $2.3 billion.) Of course, business landscapes change over time. It remains to be seen whether new ride-sharing businesses such as Uber and Lyft turn into threats for car-rental companies such as Hertz. Hertz plans to complete the spinoff of its equipment-rental business sometime next year. The move will give the company net proceeds of $2.5 billion, which will be used to pay down debt and reward shareholders via share buybacks (which reduce share count and thereby boost earnings per share). With a forward P/E ratio near 12, Hertz is worth a closer look. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Hertz.) Born in 2006, Im now a global communications force, with about 255 million active monthly users and 500 million messages sent daily. (Look closely at many messages, and youll see tiny tic-tac-toe boards.) I support more than 35 languages. I went public in 2013 and launched Vine, the six-second video company, the same year. Roughly half my 3,000 employees are engineers, and 1,440 hard-boiled eggs are eaten each week at my San Francisco headquarters. I break a lot of news before the traditional media does. If I wrote a novel, it would be complex, with 140 characters. Who am I? (Answer: Twitter) Bad PenniesQSince penny stocks are so inexpensive, I can buy thousands of them, which can make me richer faster, no? H.E., Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylv aniaASorry, no. Penny stocks might seem like bargains, but they wont necessarily grow faster than other stocks. A $1 stock and a $60 one can both go up (or down!) by the same percentage in one day. With a 5 percent increase, the $1 stock will rise in value by 5 cents, to $1.05. For the $60 stock, its a $3 jump, to $63. If the $60 stock is tied to a healthier company with competitive advantages, actual revenue and profits, and a lower valuation (perhaps as suggested by its price-to-earnings ratio), its likely a much better bargain than the $1 stock. Penny stocks (which trade for $5 or less per share) can be more likely to plummet than skyrocket. Theyre risky, and often hyped and manipulated. Penny-stock investors are typically looking to get rich quick, but thats not how reliable wealth-building works. Focus on the long run plenty of big, successful blue-chip companies have made shareholders happy over many years. Penny stocks have made many unhappy. Its fun to own 5,000 shares of something, but not when they crash. ***QHow can I become a millionaire in my lifetime? P.J., Muskegon, MichiganAYou might want to start soon. You can earn a million dollars if you sock $5,000 per year into the stock market and earn its historic average annual return of roughly 10 percent over 31 years. Youll get there in 25 years if you invest $10,000 per year. No return is guaranteed in the stock market, but if you invest well and for a long time, you can build great wealth.

Depending on how a buyer is made aware of your home, price is oen the rst thing he or she sees, and many homes are discarded by prospective buyers as not being in the appropriate price range before theyre even given a chance of showing. Your asking price is oen your homes rst impression, and if you want to realize the most money you can for your home, its imperative that you make a good rst impression. is is not as easy as it sounds, and pricing strategy should not be taken lightly.

Whether they go to work every day in a room specifically heated to more than 100 degrees or in the sun, their jobs require a certain level of heattolerant determination, and often-copious amounts of sunscreen. Here are some of Southwest Floridas hottest jobs.Canal maintenance crewLate on a Wednesday morning, the temperature continued to click up under a blinding blue sky. For a group of county laborers off an industrial road in Naples lining the sides of a watery, muddy canal with large rocks, there was little respite from the glare aside from a small shade tree and plenty of drinking water. The Collier County Road and Bridge Maintenance Department aquatics crew was digging out the canal and lining it with felt and rock to prepare for stormwater flow needs during the rainy season. Working in canals, they keep an eye out for water moccasins, spiders and alligators while pacing themselves in the heat. You learn to tolerate it, one of the workers said. You learn to respect it. But theres really only one way to deal with it, says crew leader Robert Sykora, 45. Suck it up. They work four 10-hour days per week, finishing at 5 p.m. Bikram Yoga Jim Jimmy-Ji Mahon (pronounced man), director of Bikram Yoga of Fort Myers, has a flair for exotic description. During his standard Bikram or hot yoga session, a method he has been practicing for decades, he coaxes, demonstrates, teaches and sometimes scolds participants for 90 minutes into working their bodies into 26 different postures. Those included bending their sweat-drenched bodies into various shapes, in one case like a python in Miami and in another allowing their chests and lungs to open up like a lotus flower blooming. Meanwhile, every breath taken was filled with heat. The room, a large space with a mirror wall in a Fort Myers shopping center, is heated to around 105 degrees and kept near 40 percent humidity. All levels of fitness and ages occupied the room Mr. Mahon says he is as old as my back teeth and as young as my tongue. If youre new, the goal is mainly to stay in the room, follow his instruction and hang with the heat, used for its therapeutic effect, loosening your muscles and joints. Its a mind-body workout, intense but meditative, and Mr. Mahon periodically asks participants to use bulldog determination and Bengal tiger courage as they find their limits. Chef at The Curve The baseball season is heating up along with the kitchen at The Curve, a new baseball-themed tavern at The Wyvern hotel in downtown Punta Gorda with a devotion to good cooking. Everythings homemade and carefully sourced: executive chef Robert Moltzans version of Cracker Jacks with cinnamon and cayenne pepper (a nostalgic bar treat), the warm smell of roasting garlic in the oven, brined pork butts, bison from a local provider and a Sicilian recipe for pizza dough. I worked for some Sicilians in New York in the 0s, he admits. Yes, Im that old. Chef Moltzan started The Curve five months ago, his latest venture. Working on the line, the confined space where cooks produce meals, is the hottest spot in the restaurant. Gas heat flashes from a convection oven, flat top and grill. An Ansul hood system over the line flushes out some of the hot kitchen air and keeps cooks from not dropping over Mr. Moltzan said. He estimates temperatures can still rise to 140 degrees by the stove. The beautiful chill of a walkin cooler provides a quick respite, and numerous bottles of water aid hydration during a fouror five-hour dinner service. Foreman for Craigs Perfect Turf Antonio Valenzuela worked construction jobs every summer when he was growing up, so the punishing sun no longer fazes him and most of the landscaping crew he works with. We dont feel it no more, said Mr. Valenzuela, 19, a foreman for Craigs Perfect Turf Landscaping in Port Charlotte. He usually meets up with the rest of the crew around 7:15 a.m. and they get to a job site by around 8:30 and work through the afternoon. Its a day spent using their hands, whether shoveling fresh dirt into a garden, ripping up pallets of sod or cabbage palm trees, or planting arrangements of foxtails and Indian hawthorns. At a low white house in DeSoto County, the crew continued working after rain showers on a recent afternoon. The only thing left is maybe two yards of topsoil, 30 plants and some mulch, Mr. Valenzuela said. He and the others, a close group, work five or six days a week with Sundays off. Pretty much everybody here is considered family because we see them more than we see our own families, said David Hernandez, 30. The work has kept him in shape. Yes, he said. I had to cancel my gym membership.Brick, glass and stone mason Chester Frank started out building concrete seawalls, then the cementblock skeletons of homes and commercial buildings. Many fill the Southwest Florida landscape. Over coffee at a Dennys at Daniels Parkway and Interstate 75 in Fort Myers, Mr. Frank recalled the land here was mostly open when he started in masonry as a teenager 42 years ago. Hed wear a straw hat and no shirt on blazing days lifting and cementing hundreds of blocks together; his skin, like his fathers, dark enough to resist burning. If you werent physically fit, you didnt make it, he said. In the 1990s, he went into business for himself and became more adept at creative masonry such as waterfalls of stone or serpentine glass-block structures. He still spends plenty of time in the sun, though not as much as in his youth. But hes also the outdoor type, and when hes not working, hes often fishing. He also simply enjoys working with his hands, he said, keeping him in the business all these years.Lead lifeguard Having just graduated from high school, it is Kelly Heinemeyers third season as a lifeguard at Sun-N-Fun Lagoon in Naples, an interim job before she plans to attend Florida Gulf Coast University as a nursing student. Through a pair of BluBlocker sunglasses she observes the gaggles of kids enjoying twisting slides, the turtle c ove, the lazy river and hypnotic blue pools. The job was a natural fit for her since she swam competitively in high school. Along with medical training, the job requires a whistle at the ready, a watchful eye and plenty of sunscreen. She cakes it on before heading out to her post. I go through bottles and bottles of it, she said. Neutrogena is one of her favorite brands, along with Australian Gold for a good tan. Shes already an even shade of brown, but its still early in the summer. Im pretty pale right now, she said.

Moving on in to The Terraces at Bonita Springs SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYOne year after The Terraces at Bonita Springs opened its doors, the retirement community is more than 80 percent occupied, with many of the remaining apartment homes already reserved. In addition to providing resort-like activities and maintenance-free, oneto three-bedroom independent living apartment residences, the community also includes Renaissance at The Terraces. Health services are provided on site, including assisted living, memory support and skilled nursing residences. Short-term rehabilitation and respite care services are available to the general public. We continue to see people being able to sell their houses for a good price much quicker than in years past, says Ross Dickmann, executive director of the community. Another factor contributing to The Terraces success, he adds, is a growing trend among the Silent Generation and even more so with baby boomers they dont want to deal with the hassles of maintaining a home or burden their children with difficult decisions in the years ahead. In Bonita Springs, people in the 55-64 and 65-74 age groups are the two largest population segments, significantly exceeding state and national averages. The groups make up 31 percent of the Bonita Springs population. Nationwide, about 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 every day from now until 2031.

The struggles of the pioneers who came here in the 1800s and early 1900s have been told through several books written locally and many old photographs. Their stories continue to intrigue. The Marco Island Foundation for the Arts has been working for many months with staff at the Marco Island Historical Museum to design an exhibit that captures the rich history of Collier and Lee counties. Area artists are now invited to participate in the process that ultimately will result in Painting Southwest Florida History, which will hang at the Marco museum January-March, 2015. Artists who would like to be considered for the exhibition must first email three high-resolution images of completed works (oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, pen and ink, charcoal, oil pastel, pencil, batik and mixed media are acceptable) to Timothy England, director of the Marco museum (timothyengland@colliergov.net) and to local artist Malenda Trick (malenda@malendatrick.com). Based on those submissions, Ms. Trick will select a number of artists to then create original works depicting people and places of local historic importance to comprise the Painting Southwest Florida History exhibition.

Tuesday, July 22 at 5:30 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSThe sweet aches and pains of this old heartTen years ago this month, a June bug chewed through my right eardrum. This happened on a camping trip in Central Florida near one of the cool, clear springs that runs through this state. One night I fell asleep to the sound of insects pinging off the side of the tent, curled up next to a boy I was just beginning to love, and woke later in the hot, humid darkness to something crawling in my ear. By the time I sat up and shook the boy next to me, that something had burrowed into my ear canal. We raced to the hospital in Gainesville, and while I sat in the emergency room waiting area, the bug inside my ear tore through my eardrum. For the last few centimeters, I could hear its mandibles clicking. The ER doctor told me the eardrum would grow back, and he was right it did. As far as my ear was concerned, the moment seemed to have passed without much consequence. But in the last few months, my right inner ear has begun to throb at odd times, especially at night. The effects of the June bug incident, it would seem, did not disappear. They simply submerged for a time. All this business with my ear has gotten me thinking about the heart. I wonder how many episodes from our past stay with us, just beneath the surface, waiting to reappear. My guess? All of them. Years ago, in high school, I had a thing for a boy with a fine nose and strong hands and a distant, indifferent air. He broke my heart again and again. Late in our senior year, when so much hurt had passed between us, I consoled myself by thinking, Ten years from now, I wont even remember his name. Remembering that moment now, I have to laugh. Were a few years shy of our 20th high-school reunion, and of course I havent forgotten his name. He still calls to say hello every now and then, and he never forgets my birthday. When I think of him, its not in our worst moments but in our best. Im strangely grateful for the time we shared. I recently spent a morning with a friends grandmother in the hospital. She talked about the pangs of old age, how when youre 83 if you wake up without an ache then you know its going to be a good day. But that almost never happens, she said. She made me think of the accumulated pains of our years, the wounds that stay with us, like my chewed up eardrum, how the old hurts never really go away. Our heart is like that, I think, always holding on to memories. I wonder if, as we age, our hearts dont throb with old aches the way some peoples joints hurt before a storm. I wonder, too, if thats such a bad thing, if there isnt some sweetness in it. Because when my ear hums these days, I think about a long-ago night beside a spring, the soft thwack of insects against tarp, and a boy sleeping next to me whom I would give anything to see again.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 10-16, 2014 element of protest that the Emotional Traffic project had. This time, Mr. McGraw knows that the Sundown Heaven Town CD will be released in September, shortly after he plays the final tour date currently on the books for this summers concert run. A release date for Emotional Traffic was something Tim McGraw didnt have when he went on tour in summer 2011. Mr. McGraws label at the time, Curb Records, had decided to put Emotional Traffic on the shelf and instead release a McGraw best-of album, Number One Hits, in November 2010. With that album out, Curb was in no hurry to have new Mr. McGraw music hit the marketplace. Mr. McGraw had adamantly opposed the release of Number One Hits, noting it was the fourth greatest hits collection Curb had released and offered little that was new to his fans. He had wanted to release Emotional Traffic, but now the album was in limbo. The dispute eventually boiled over into a breach of contract lawsuit from Curb, which claimed Mr. McGraw had recorded Emotional Traffic too early. Mr. McGraw counter-sued, seeking reimbursement for his recording expenses, his advance and damages. Mr. McGraw won a major victory in November 2011 when a judge granted him permission to record for another label, ending his affiliation with Curb. Emotional Traffic was then released by Curb in January 2012. Mr. McGraw, meanwhile, finalized a new deal with Big Machine Records in May 2012 and quickly went to work on his next studio album, Two Lanes of Freedom. Sundown Heaven Town is set to arrive Sept. 16 less than 18 months after Two Lanes of Freedom was released. Thats notable, considering most of Mr. McGraws 11 Curb albums arrived at two-year intervals and Emotional Traffic wasnt released until almost three years after Mr. McGraws previous album, Southern Voice. Mr. McGraw, in a recent phone interview, said, however, that fans shouldnt expect him to keep turning out new albums at such a rapid pace. I dont want to say its a precedent, what Im doing now, and that Im going to continue to do this, he said. But there are good reasons why Two Lanes Of Freedom and Sundown Heaven Town are happening in quick succession. For one thing, the albums reflect a rejuvenation for Mr. McGraw. In fact, he has compared Two Lanes Of Freedom to his fourth studio album, 1997s Everywhere. That CD felt like a landmark effort for Mr. McGraw. It came after his marriage to fellow country star Faith Hill, was his first self-produced album and spawned four No. 1 country singles. Its widely considered the album on which Mr. McGraw came into his own as a country star. I went into record Everywhere, and it was the first album that I was putting my name on as producer and I felt like I had that energy, Mr. McGraw said. I felt like I had weaved myself (through) sort of the landmines a little bit where I felt like free to just make music. I sort of felt that way with Two Lanes of Freedom, and this album (Sundown Heaven Town) sort of just really extended that for me. Mr. McGraw didnt want to discuss his battles with Curb Records Its a new day. I dont want to get in the position of having to beat up anybody or beat up myself over those years. We had a lot of great success and (there are) a lot of great people there, he said but he clearly saw parallels in the environment he encountered in joining Big Machine Records and the way things felt at Curb heading into the Everywhere project. I think the label, (Big Machine President) Scott Borchetta and the team over at Big Machine had that sort of energy, Mr. McGraw said. They had that sort of drive and that go-out-andconquer-the-world attitude. That enthusiasm carried over to the making of Two Lanes Of Freedom and then on to last summers Two Lanes Of Freedom tour. Mr. McGraw didnt want that feeling to fade before he made his next record, so he didnt pause before going to work on what became Sundown Heaven Town. We came right off of the tour and went back into the studio, he said. We just really had this sort of renewed sense of purpose and drive and importance in what we were doing. I think as an artist, part of what you do is you feel important about what you do, about your music. It counts and it matters to you, and thats what it feels like to me right now. It may not matter to anybody else, but it matters to me. Not surprisingly, Mr. McGraw feels Sundown Heaven Town shares some significant traits with Two Lanes Of Freedom. They just seemed sort of like bookends to each other, sort of like volume one and volume two, Mr. McGraw said. I think that this one is an extension of Two Lanes of Freedom in a lot of ways sonically, sort of taking some of the things that we loved on Two Lanes of Freedom. For instance, the title cut, Two Lanes of Freedom, a song called Friend of a Friend, our direction sonically on the new album came sort of from those songs. Fans have gotten a couple of tastes of Sundown Heaven Town already. A first single, Lookin for That Girl, was released in January. Now a second song from the album, Meanwhile Back At Mamas, has been released. The earthy ballad about family and the familiarity and comfort of home finds Mr. McGraws wife, Ms. Hill, joining him on vocals, making the song something of an event. The demo of the song wasnt a duet, but Mr. McGraw felt his wife could make it extra-special. The song as a demo is just a guitar/vocal, Mr. McGraw said. I fell in love with it instantly. I loved what it said. It just had that quality that drew you in and put you in a place and time. I think it was something that everybody could relate to. And I just thought that Faith would bring a warmth to the song. Shes such a great singer, but she brings such emotion when she sings a song and such soul to it, that I think that instantly, the subject matter, what its about, and when you hear us sing together and you certainly hear her voice, it just instantly hits that nerve. The two singles wont be the only songs from Sundown Heaven Town in his live set, Mr. McGraw said. I love being able to go out and do a tour and play a lot of new music that no ones heard before to prepare them for whats coming on the album, he said. So its a little different than everybody knowing the stuff and hearing it. And for us, its that way, too, because its always cool to get the reaction of people when they hear a song theyve never heard before. And if they like it instantly, you can tell.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 10-16, 2014 ARTS COMMENTARY Gritty and pretty and set in GalvestonSerendipitys a marvelous thing. I just read two novels back-to-back that, at the outset, seemingly had nothing in common. The Promise, a literary novel by Ann Weisgarber, is set in 1900 and tells the tale of a woman from Ohio who, in desperate straits, marries a man she knew though not very well in high school. Oscar is now a dairy farmer in Galveston, Texas, newly widowed with a 4-year-old son. Catherine Wainwright is a concert pianist, and Texas farm life is a far cry from the cultured life she lived. Galveston, by Nic Pizzolatto, is a gritty modern tale of Roy Cady, a loan sharks bagman who goes on the run with a prostitute. They leave New Orleans and eventually wind up in Galveston. (Mr. Pizzolatto, who wrote a couple of episodes for the first season of The Killing, is the creator, writer and executive producer of the wildly successful HBO series True Detective.) But the two books have more in common than coincidentally being set in Galveston. Both novels open with scenes of death, or impending death. Heres how The Promise begins, narrated by Nan, a neighbor of Oscars: There wasnt nothing good about funerals. The very notion of them was a disturbance. Ive told my kin, when my time comes, dont lay me out for people to look at. Just close the coffin and bury me quick. But these Catholics had other notions. They stretched a funeral like nobody else could. She describes the scene of the vigil with perfect detail, especially how the men react: They turned their hats in their hands as they mumbled condolences; Daddy kept pinching the crown in his. My brothers werent much better but the married men were the most skittish. Their gazes skipped around until they found their wives. Dont die, I could see the men think. Dont leave me with our little ones, me not knowing what to do, me having to give them away or remarry quick. Dont let me be like Oscar, widowed with a four-yearold boy. It was hurtful to watch. Galveston opens with a blunt prognosis of death: A doctor took pictures of my lungs. They were full of snow flurries. When I walked out the office all the people in the waiting room looked grateful they werent me. Certain things you can see in a persons face. Later, as Roy tries to come to grips with the news, he says, Theres no getting out alive, but you hope to avoid a deadline. Both plots are full of surprises, impossible to predict. Both authors have lively description. Heres Roy waiting in a room: The light from the blinds poured across me in old-fashioned prison stripes. And his description of a bar: Kind of small, it had a low ceiling and three pool tables, stuffed with fat women and angry men drinking Miller Lite and waiting for a fight The national and confederate flags hung along a back wall above a picture of Ronnie Reagan and his heroic hair. And his description of a couple guys he meets in the bar: Id known dudes like this my whole life, country morons stuck in a state of permanent resentment. They abuse small animals, grow up to beat their kids with belts and wreck their trucks driving drunk, find Jesus at forty and start going to church and using prostitutes. Its a gritty, hardscrabble world. In The Promise, Catherine finds Texas backward and primitive. But she finds beauty in the Gulf of Mexico, and there is always escape in her music. The descriptions arent snappy noir one-liners like those in Galveston. They make more sense in the context of the novel. But heres Nans description of Catherine playing Moonlight Sonata: It was like nothing Id ever heard before. This music clutched at my heart: It made everything around me fall away. Without knowing how I got there, I found myself in the parlor but off to the side. Mrs. Williams sat on the bench, there were sheets of paper spread out in front of the piano. She played, leaning into the music, swaying a little. Each note bore down. Each note pulled at me and stirred up everything I thought I was done with the boys I had intended to marry, the loss of Bernadette. And the wanting of Oscar. Mrs. Williams played on and on, laying bare the thing that hurt the most: Oscar picking a woman so different from me. I had my hands to my chest; my heart was near to bursting wide open. Then she played the last two chords, deep and somber. The music hung in the air before it slipped away, overcome by the low crashing sound of the surf. The Promise tells the story through the narrative of two different women: Nan and Catherine. We see the misunderstandings, the cultural differences, the assumptions. Galveston follows a structure a little similar to that of True Detective, with Roy narrating in 1987 and then 2008, alternating between the two. Publishers Weekly called The Promise shades of Willa Cather, Sinclair Lewis and Conrad Richter. And though narrated by two women, its the furthest thing from chick lit.The Dallas Morning News said that Galveston delivers knockout crime noir, calling it a cross between Dashiell Hammetts The Maltese Falcon and Raymond Carvers boozy short stories. The book was an Edgar Award finalist. But, as in many hardcore crime novels, women and non-Anglo ethnicities arent treated with much respect. Women, for the most part, are either victims or whores, or both. Both novels have strong voices, strong points of view and a definite sense of place. Both contain characters wanting to find their place in the world, yearning for more. Their authors have crafted them so well that they seem as real as the people I meet throughout the day. They still haunt my mind. I hadnt planned on spending so much time reading about people in Galveston, but Im glad I did. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com OVERWEIGHT?$249 FOUR-WEEK WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMOffer includes: Complete comprehensive review of BMI, BMR, total body fat %, waist-to-hip ratio, lean vs. fat body mass, 30-days diet supplements + (3) Laser-Lipo treatments & (1) B-12 shot *Must call before 07/17/14 Must mention Florida Weekly when booking to get offer.

NoSomeday Melissa McCarthy will find the perfect star vehicle to showcase her talents. Today is not that day. Tammy, the latest in a series of misfires featuring Ms. McCarthy as a foulmouthed, irresponsible louse, is spectacularly unfunny. Its the kind of movie where afterward the filmmakers sit around a table asking themselves, What went wrong? and everyone shrugs in embarrassment. The sad thing is that its Ms. McCarthys reallife husband, actor/ writer/director Ben Falcone, who leads her astray. As the film opens, Tammy stuffs Doritos into her mouth as shes driving and hits a deer. The next time I laugh at an animalabuse joke will be the first. Ms. McCarthy, who co-wrote the film with Mr. Falcone, shouldve known from her participation in The Hangover III that car accidents with animals are never funny. With her car a wreck, Tammy shows up late for work at a fast food restaurant and is fired. According to Tammy, her boss (Mr. Falcone) is being a jerk, though anyone with a half a brain will realize she shouldve been fired long ago. Anyway, Tammy arrives at home only to see her husband (Nat Faxon) having a romantic dinner with their neighbor (Toni Collette). She leaves in a huff, stomping a few houses down the street to her mothers (Allison Janney) place, where she finds little comfort or help, except from her grandma, Pearl (Susan Sarandon). With an agreement that they leave town together, Pearl, who is a diabetic alcoholic nymphomaniac, allows Tammy to drive her car and off they go. Soon Tammy breaks a jet ski, ruins the car, dances on her way into robbing a restaurant and is arrested. Pearl meets a guy (Gary Gole) wholl take her to bed, though what his son (Mark Duplass) sees in Tammy is never clear. Part of the problem is that Ms. McCarthy keeps playing a loser, and it doesnt suit her. Her characters, specifically here and in Identity Thief, are reckless, negligent and obnoxious. They do nothing to help themselves, and theyre hard to like. Even her detective in The Heat was odious. Its hard to laugh at someones jokes when you dont like them. The rest of the problem with Tammy is the entire rest of the movie, starting with the two main characters. As Laurel and Hardy, Martin and Lewis and, heck, even the Smothers Brothers taught us, a good comedy duo needs to have a wacko and a straight person to play off of. But with Tammy and Pearl, we have two loose cannons and no one to ground the comedy. This means everything is crazy all the time, which gets tiresome quickly. Worse, its only rarely funny to begin with. The story wanders aimlessly, just like the characters. Pearl says early on that she wants to see Niagara Falls, but she and Tammy are so intent on being misfits that wed feel sorry for Niagara Falls if they made it. This is a road trip movie featuring the zany adventures of two criminals with no redeeming qualities. Watching Tammy is the equivalent of Ms. McCarthy desperately flailing her arms for attention and not finding anyone who gives a damn. She tries as hard as she can and comes up empty. Now she needs to help herself by playing a different character. You can do it, Melissa. We still believe in you. t t dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Shirley MacLaine and Debbie Reynolds were considered for the role of Pearl before Susan Sarandon was cast.

FILM CAPSULESEarth To Echo (Teo Halm, Brian Astro Bradley, Reese Hartwig) Three young friends (Mr. Halm, Mr. Bradley, Mr. Hartwig) discover a lost alien the night before theyre forced to move away from one another in their neighborhood. Its a lackluster E.T. rip-off that uses the found footage gimmick to dizzying effect. Rated PG. Transformers: Age of Extinction (Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci) Inventor Cade (Mr. Wahlberg) and his daughter Tessa (Ms. Peltz) are caught in a government war against Transformers in the fourth installment of director Michael Bays hit franchise. At 165 minutes and with a weak story, its so long and overwhelming its exhausting. Rated PG-13.Obvious Child (Jenny Slate, Jake Lacy, Gaby Hoffmann) Stand-up comedienne Donna (Ms. Slate) is dumped by her boyfriend, loses her job and is knocked up by a nice guy (Mr. Lacy) in the span of a few days. Funny and empowering for women, with a performance from Ms. Slate that could make her a star. Rated R.Jersey Boys (John Lloyd Young, Vincent Piazza, Christopher Walken) The story of Frankie Valli (Mr. Young) and The Four Seasons rise and fall. For those unfamiliar with the 2005 Tony Award-winning Broadway show, there are big surprises in store as this is much more than a jukebox musical. The songs are good, but the storys even better. Directed by Clint Eastwood. Rated R. Jump Street (Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Ice Cube) In this sequel to the 2012 hit, Captain Dickson (Ice Cube) sends Schmidt (Mr. Hill) and Jenko (Mr. Tatum) to college to bust a drug ring. It has no shame in being similar to the original, and thats OK because its probably funnier. Rated R.The Signal 1/2(Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke, Laurence Fishburne) Computers hackers (Mr. Thwaites, Beau Knapp) wake up in a hospital after trying to track down their rival. The middle loses its way, but the beginning and end are fascinating enough to earn this a moderate recommendation. Rated PG-13.How to Train Your Dragon 2 1/2(Voices of Jay Baruchel, Craig Ferguson, Gerard Butler) With his father (Mr. Butler) ready to hand over the reins and make him chief, Hiccup (Mr. Baruchel) must once again prove himself when dragon hunters threaten their safety. Well-conceived, funny and exciting, this is a top-quality sequel without a misstep. Rated PG.The Fault in Our Stars 1/2(Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Laura Dern) Teenagers Hazel (Ms. Woodley) and Gus (Mr. Elgort) fall for one another as she battles cancer. Its a tearjerker for sure, but it earns those tears through quality character development and emotion. This is not manipulative melodrama; its genuine heartache. Based on the novel by John Green. Rated PG-13.Edge of Tomorrow(Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton) Major William Cage (Mr. Cruise) dies in battle but is revived and forced to relive the same day until he finds a way to emerge victorious. The 3D and visual effects look great, the story is fantastic, and it all pays off wonderfully in a near perfect action movie. Rated PG-13.A Million Ways to Die in the West (Seth MacFarlane, Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson) A gunslingers (Mr. Neeson) wife (Ms. Theron) trains a sheep farmer (Mr. MacFarlane) to use a gun prior to a showdown with the man (Neil Patrick Harris) who stole the farmers girlfriend (Amanda Seyfried). Its never a good thing when most of the funny moments are in the trailer.

A contemporary take on the 18thcentury genre of the pastiche, The Enchanted Island is a Baroque fantasy that brings together more than 30 of the greatest arias and ensembles by Handel, Vivaldi, Rameau, Purcell and other composers. The new English libretto by Jeremy Sams was inspired by Shakespeares The Tempest and A Midsummer Nights Dream. The four young lovers from A Midsummer Nights Dream find themselves shipwrecked on Prosperos island from The Tempest, leading to a tortuous web of comic and dramatic romantic entanglements. The all-star cast is headed by the legendary Plcido Domingo as Neptune. William Christie conducts the worldpremiere production by director Phelim McDermott. The Summer Encore presentation of The Enchanted Island was originally transmitted live from The Met on Jan. 21, 2012.

University Press of Florida. 192 pages. $24.95. Florida is blessed with writers devoted to its natural splendors and to exploring the relationship between human endeavor, the environment all creatures share and the severely threatened nonhuman creatures. Ive had the privilege over the years to read and write about such passionate and skilled guides as Bill Belleville, Doug Alderson and Jeff Klinkenberg. Andrew Furman, a professor of literature and creative writing at Florida Atlantic University, joins this company with his totally engaging collection of short essays about his 17-year journey toward a deep understanding of the place he has chosen to make his home. This place is not the Boca Raton with which most of us are familiar. Mr. Furmans quest was a search for understanding and belonging. He sought to remove the distance between the patterns of his daily life the routines of suburbia and academe and the coexistent but largely unnoticed patterns of wildlife and plant life. Over the course of many years, the accumulation of observations and knowledge took on, more and more, a spiritual dimension. With the exception of an extended meditation on squirrels, the essays mostly concern fish, birds and trees. The authors amateur field work is accompanied by a great deal of reading and by interaction with those who share his developing passion. He finds that it takes determination hard work, even to make the time and effort. Energy and hours must be stolen from set responsibilities and ingrained habits. Thats where family comes in. One of the several charms of this inspiring book is how the author and his wife, Wendy, involve their children in this experiment. Childrearing is enhanced by the ways in which the Furmans shape their childrens informal education through shared experiences of nature. A redirected use of family time deepens relationships. His essays reveal Mr. Furmans keen descriptive skills. He can pin down not only what we need to know, but also what we need to see in order to value the importance the essential distinction and dignity of the live oak, the geiger tree and the coontie plant. Each essay includes the author in the act of seeking and discovering. Exposition, description and narration interact with grace and power. This slim book includes beautifully fashioned essays about fishing and gardening; detailed appreciations of burrowing owls, painted bunting, the ivory-billed woodpecker, the snail kite; and many essays of moral import. Andrew Furman and his family are fighting against time, indifference, poor resource management decisions and the seemingly inevitable consequences of paving paradise. People still dont get it: Remove a grove of trees and you remove the birds that nest only in that particular kind of tree. Every action we take in our shared environment has expected and unexpected consequences. Endangered species? What isnt? We need books like this. We need to slow down and absorb The Tale of a Cuban Immigrant, sharing Mr. Furmans excitement over the possible sighting of a rare Cuban pewee. Rolled into this quest is the author's profound worry:Mostly, whenever the opportunity arises I light out to various Florida outposts to observe the routine and proper workings of the natural world. The endeavor takes more and more strenuous effort these days in my part of the world, and probably in most of the industrialized world. Indeed, the indigenous rhythms throughout the state of Florida grow all the more faint; and, complicating matters, we grown increasingly deaf to them. These rhythms reverberate out of earshot as we cower in our climate-controlled cars, homes and offices.I mentioned above that Bitten is packed with the authors education through reading. Regularly, he excerpts or paraphrases passages from the great naturalists: William Bartram, Roger Tory Peterson, Marjorie Stoneman Douglas and many others. His tragicomic Thoreau in Florida helps us realize habitat differences: In the wake of reading Walden, a walking tour in a preserved patch of the northern Everglades doesnt allow much interaction between Henry David Thoreaus masterwork and the scene at hand until a Carolina wren shows up to make the connection. Thoreau had seen one too. He and Mr. Furmans students had something to share. For all of us, Bitten has much to share. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. u t t s c p philJASONpkjason@comcast.net Furman

TORY BURCH | VERA BRADLEY WHITE HOUSE BLACK MARKET New Items Below Wholesale Prices! KOVEL: ANTIQUES Folding tables made to fit in tight spaces BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELNo matter how large a house is, there always seems to be a need for more space. During the 19th century, especially in the South, homes often had long, wide front halls that went from the front door to the back door. That allowed the air to circulate and helped cool the house. Clever furniture makers created a table that could be stored against the wall until it was needed. The table had deep drop leaves hinged to a narrow top. When opened, the leaves were supported by swing legs, and the extended table could open to 45 inches long and 32 inches wide. Sometimes the table was made with an under-the-top storage drawer that opened from the side. This type of drop-leaf table was made in the 16th century and has been made in a variety of styles, including modern versions made in the 21st century. Q: I have been trying to get more information about a porcelain nut bowl that belonged to my grandmother. It has slightly curved sides and two gilt handles. It is painted with squirrels and grass on the outside and pine cones on the inside. The mark on the bottom is a shield with the words, HC, Royal Bavaria, Patent Application. How old is it? Is there is any value other than as a family treasure? A: Your nut dish was made in Bavaria (Germany) sometime between 1890 and 1914 but decorated in the United States. The decorating of porcelain blanks by independent artists rather than factory-employed artists was popular in the United States from the 1870s to the 1930s. It began in Cincinnati in 1874, when Mary Louise McLaughlin saw a set of European china paints and urged her art instructor to organize a class in china painting. The class was so successful that the ladies in the class exhibited their work at the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Exposition. By 1900 there were an estimated 20,000 china painters in America. For the most part, they used china blanks imported from Germany and France. Your nut dish is worth about $35 to $50. Rare forms, such as condensed milk containers and celery dishes, usually bring higher prices than ordinary plates, cups and bowls. Q: I have a small metal toy chair that was a prize in a Cracker Jack box many years ago. From information we have, we think its from about 1915. Can you give us some information about Cracker Jack toys and what they are worth? A: Cracker Jack has been a popular snack for more than 100 years. A combination of popcorn, peanuts and molasses was introduced at the 1893 Worlds Fair in Chicago, but the name COURTESY PHOTOJ. and J.W. Meeks of New York City made this classical drop-leaf table about 1840. It has a stenciled label in the drawer with the address of the workshop from 1836 to 1855. It extends to 45 inches long. The table sold for $1,075 at Neal Auction this spring in New Orleans.

Cracker Jack wasnt used until 1896. Prizes were put in every box beginning in 1912. Miniature metal toys were included in early years, plastic toys later. Collectors look for old Cracker Jack toys, boxes and advertising materials. The Cracker Jack Collectors Association is a club with a newsletter for collectors (www. crackerjackcollectors.com/cjcahistory. htm). Some early Cracker Jack toys sell at auctions or online for $10 or $15, but some that are rare or more desirable can sell for much more. Q: I have two glass decanters with pewter overlay and pewter stoppers. The bottles have pinched sides, and the word Haigs is molded on the bottom. The base of the pewter is marked Ngan Winghing and Made in Hong Kong. About when were they made? A: Haigs is a famous brand of whiskey. Haigs pinch bottles were first made in 1893. Bottles with overlay probably were made at Christmas time. Your pewter overlay bottle is relatively new. Several companies in Hong Kong use the name Wing Hing. Your pewter decanter may have been made by Wing Hing Metal Manufactory Ltd., a company that makes and exports metal products, including promotional items, metal boxes, badges, toys and other items. The company has been in business for more than 25 years. Q: I recently rediscovered an album containing Beatles cards that I collected after the Beatles first arrived in the United States. They were the size of baseball trading cards, and had pictures of the Beatles engaged in activities. My Beatles cards are in perfect condition. Are they worth anything? A: The Topps Co. released seven series of Beatles-themed bubble-gum trading cards in 1964, after the Fab Four made their first trip to the U.S. The first three sets in the series featured blackand-white photographs of John, Paul, George and Ringo, with blue facsimile signatures, totaling 165 cards. They were followed by a Color Card series of 64 cards, with questions, answers and facts on the back, a Beatles Diary series of 60 cards, with color photographs and diary entries by each Beatle on the back and a Hard Days Night series of sepia-tone cards with pictures from the movie. There also is a series of 55 oversized Beatles Plaks cards, with photographs and slogans about the Beatles on shaped plaks that could be punched out and put together to form a chainlike display. Collectors also look for the wrappers and boxes they came in. Beatles Plaks cards are the hardest to find and therefore the most expensive. Other Beatles trading cards can sell for a few dollars to a few hundred dollars, depending on the set and condition of the cards. Beatles trading cards from the 1990s and 2000s are worth very little.Tip: Avoid flies. They leave droppings on mirrors, pictures and chandeliers. Flyspecks on pictures can be carefully removed with a knife blade. Glass can be washed. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Can you tell me what my favorite actor from that show, Luke Macfarlane, has coming up next? Vivian R., Brunswick, Ga.A: Luke can be seen next starring in the Hallmark Movie Channels original movie The Memory Book, which premieres at 9 p.m. Saturday, July 26. The story centers on photographer Chloe (played by Meghan Ory), who stumbles upon an old photo album from the 1970s. She sets out to find the couple in the album to prove that true love exists. Along the way, she meets Gabe Sinclair (Luke), a mysterious but charming bartender who soon finds himself falling in love with her. I spoke with Luke about what the movie means to him: I think its about investigating the past and learning from those whove come before us about how to live our lives. That sounds a little over the top, but I think the movie is about what the generation before us has to teach us. Im a big history buff myself. I always look to the past, and I think thats what our main characters are doing looking to the past and seeing how it formed them. I think its also about staying open to the possibility of love. Q: I was super excited about the new series Hieroglyph, and now I hear it wont be airing. Whats up with that? Gina R., via emailA: Fox recently announced that its decided to pull the plug on the historical fantasy/thriller centered on ancient Egypt, even though it gave the green light and shot the pilot episode. A ccording to insiders: The series wasnt creatively coming together the way executives had hoped. After watching the trailer for the series, to me it looked like a cheap Game of Thrones rip-off, so maybe Fox execs were saving us from finding that out for ourselves. Q: You wrote before that Cedar Cove is returning this summer. Do you know when yet? Audrey E., via emailA: The popular Hallmark Channel series starring Andie MacDowell returns for its 12-episode second season on Thursday, July 17, at 8/7c. The show opens with Olivia (Andie MacDowell) and Jack (Dylan Neal) rushing to the hospital to wait with Jacks son, Eric (Tom Stevens), as Erics girlfriend suffers from a serious pregnancy complication. This causes Olivia to flash back to the last time she was in the hospital the tragic day her son died. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 3903187 From the deluxe atmosphere to the expansive wine program to the extraordinary twists on Italian cuisine, Angelinas Ristorante set the bar high when it opened in 2008 and remains one of Bonita Springs finer dining experiences. Although categorized as Italian, the brand has stretched to reflect the restaurants broader aspirations. Also injecting some new interest: the recent appointment of consulting Executive Chef Sarah Gruenberg, a runner-up in TVs Top Chef: Texas competition in 2012. She elevates something as basic as flatbreads with interesting toppings such as squash blossoms. At the more rarefied end, consider oh-so-tender, dry-aged steak tartar with truffle shavings a modern twist on a classic. Its tempting to make an entire meal from the freshly made pastas with add-ins such as crab and slow-roasted veal, but dont miss inventive entrees such as seared scallops paired with crisply roasted pork belly sprinkled with Brussels sprout leaves. Desserts are surprising inexpensive and worth saving room for. Full bar.

The grand view is matched by superb food and polished service. Executive Chef Andy Hunter and his team have done a masterful job of showcasing fresh seafood with a nod to carnivores in the form of steak and one chicken dish. An appetizer called South of Broad features fried green tomatoes, tangy goat feta, basil puree and tomato jam. A roasted beet and citrus salad, which included a delicious horseradish panna cotta, was also delicious. The Coastal Pan Roast featured golden tilefish, shrimp, a Tampa devil crab, Carolina gold rice, baby vegetables, corn pudding and red wine sauce. Seafood Pirlau contained scallops, shrimp, mussels and outstanding house-made seafood sausage in a mild seafood brandade. Aptly named Florida Sunshine goat cheese cheesecake with pink grapefruit gelee and pools of blood orange and lemon curd, finished with tangy lime granita was an excellent finish. Full bar.

Checkered plastic tablecloths and arched doorways give it the feel of a trattoria. Mushrooms stuffed with cheese, spinach and garlic and fried calamari were good, although the calamari arrived late. Salads were fresh, with tasty balsamic vinaigrette, but our entrees arrived before we had much time to enjoy them. Shrimp over pasta with pesto cream sauce was a nightly special. The shrimp were big and juicy, but the sauce was disappointingly bland. Better were the Gnocchi a la Mamma, tender-chewy pillows topped with mushrooms, spinach, white wine, garlic and olive oil. Service was pleasant but spotty, with long periods when our waiter was absent. Full bar.

Run by two Culinary Institute of America alums, one of who also did a stint at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples, The Local has a creative menu, an unfussy setting and a friendly, accommodating staff. Local items are boldfaced on the menu. 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 simply but expertly prepared. Sides of calabaza squash, crunchy chard and smashed potatoes were all cooked perfectly.

The loaded chopped pork nachos did not showcase the meat as well as it should have, and the Boom Boom shrimp lost their batter in a sea of spicy cream sauce. But the spice-rubbed baby back ribs had a good, charry bark along the edges, while the meat remained incredibly tender and had the all-important pink smoke ring. A quarter chicken was super-moist, and the meat slipped easily off the bone. Its darkly varnished skin was visible evidence of the restaurants smoker (which uses orangewood, a subtle alternative to the stronger hickory or oak).

After five years of success with Fuji, the enterprising couple has launched a second venture: Araya Sushi Asian Grill, just off Immokalee Road in the Sams Club Plaza next door to Cicis Pizza. Like Fuji, Araya serves a wide range of sushi as well as cooked Thai and Japanese dishes. But in addition, the new restaurant has more seating and a larger sushi bar and kitchen, allowing for an even more expansive menu. Araya, which means beautiful lady in Thai, is named for Mr. Augsondthungs mother. Its a lovely modern space, with slate gray walls and an accent wall lined with wood and shiny mother-of-pearl-like tiles that resemble rippling water. There are black tile floors, a sprawling sushi bar and three flat-screen TVs (just in case you arent captivated by watching the sushi chefs masterfully craft their rolls and nigiri). Mr. Augsondthungs stellar sushi certainly plays the leading role here, but theres so much more to explore, including a dozen yakitori items priced by the skewer. Yakitori technically means grilled chicken, which is among the options. But this is really kushiyaki, since it also includes other intriguing items such as calamari steak, scallop with bacon as well as Berkshire pork sausage. Each is priced at $2.95 to $4.95 per skewer. Yakitori bars have been popular in larger cities for several years. Its nice to see the trend finally heading our way. Nonetheless, you might find as I did on my first visit that there are so many other tantalizing dishes, the yakitori has to wait. Consider appetizers such as spicy tuna nachos, lobster crunch and carpaccio of hamachi with jalapenos, octopus and cucumber or tuna and avocado. It was the sauted chicken livers and asparagus ($7.95) that spoke to me. The livers were well seasoned and cooked to perfection, served with inch-long pieces of tendercrisp asparagus. Sauted livers are tough to find; the Araya kitchen knows how to treat them so that they are tender inside but slightly crisp outside. Traditional miso soup ($3.50) was hot and flavorful, a light and refreshing start to the meal. Do not miss the sushi, even if the whole table simply shares one roll. Mr. Augsondthung and his team excel in creating beautiful, imaginative and scrupulously fresh rolls. We tried the tiger roll ($14.95), which begins with shrimp tempura thats joined with asparagus, avocado, wrapped in rice and seaweed then topped with sesame seeds, masago and layers of smoked salmon, eel and wakame with a garnish of micro greens. It was huge, gorgeous and delicious. Another highlight was the aptly named mummy roll ($15.95), thusly dubbed for the rice paper layer with which its wrapped. Inside is spicy blue crab with rice and a seaweed wrap, the aforementioned rice paper and a showy topping of mango sauce, black and red tobiko and (edible) gold flakes. A word of warning here: If you have soup or appetizers and two of the oversized sushi rolls, you might be full before the entrees arrive. In the interest of research, we took a stab at a couple of them anyway: grilled salmon ($18.95), simply prepared with teriyaki sauce, baby bok choy and rice; and lychee duck curry ($22.95), consisting of a crisply roasted half duck served with lychee, bell peppers, tomatoes, basil and a nicely balanced curry sauce. Both were beautifully presented, showing that the kitchen crew takes as much pride in its work as do the sushi chefs in the front of the house. Dessert, anyone? No, really, we simply couldnt. But we managed nonetheless to do a fair bit of damage to a Tokyo sundae ($6.95), a colorful concoction that boasts a sticky rice base, green tea ice cream (you can substitute red bean ice cream), a topping of red bean paste and garnishes of lychee and coconut. I recommend ordering one and sharing it. Its refreshing and not overly sweet, making it a splendid ending to a meal full of great flavors and textures. The service staff is charming and efficient, pacing courses properly and making sure our glasses were filled with wellchilled Hakutsuro Junmai Dai Ginjo ShoUne sake, which proved an excellent companion to the variety of dishes we sampled. (The menu offers a variety of sake as well as wine and beer.) But theres so much ground left to cover. There is a host of sushi and sashimi, which can be ordered on a bountiful boat accompanied by salad and miso soup, or any of the creative rolls as well as cooked entrees such as country basil chicken or whole fried red snapper with homemade sweet chili sauce and kaffir lime. And then theres the yakitori, which can be a meal unto itself, especially if you try all 12 varieties. Fuji regulars have already found this new spot, greeting the Augsondhungs with hugs as they eagerly took seats and checked out the new menu. Araya lives up to its name.

WHAT MAKES A HOME? IS IT FURNITURE, the floor plan, the dcor? Or is it the memories made between the walls, in yards and on porches? For Kim and Theo Etzel, home truly is where the heart is. And as the saying goes, their home is full of heartfelt memories filled with family, aspirations and celebrations. To me, this is a home, not just a house, so in collecting the things we surround ourselves with, we focus on selecting items that represent family times and our experiences, Mr. Etzel says. We want it to be warm, inviting and fun and be a great place physically and mentally. The Etzels have spent years in their North Naples home and have collected art and other collectibles from travels and life experiences. Behind each item is a special story. One favorite is a map of the United States by artist Aaron Foster made entirely from color-coordinated license plates. The couple purchased it while traveling. Theo and I have both had jobs where we traveled a lot, Mrs. Etzel says. We love the creativity of the map and how the license plates each reflect their own state. America is such a great country, and there is a patriotism you feel when looking at this map, Mr. Etzel addss. We love living in the United States, and part of the specialness of the map is the memory it evokes of all the travels weve done throughout this great land. Another bright feature in the familys dining area is the Etzels Sticks table and chairs, new additions from a 1950s-style diner booth. They purchased this table because the message is so closely aligned with their lifelong philosophies. The table and chairs tell us to, Dream, Sit, Share and Relax every time we sit down, Mrs. Etzel says. They all speak to our family theme of connecting with each other, those we break bread with and a happy place to talk and work. The Etzels like encouraging messages, and its obvious that when it comes to guests, theyve never met a stranger. They have created several ways for guests to feel welcome in their home, including continuing a modified tradition from Mrs. Etzels childhood that has become a permanent fixture. There was a tradition in my childhood home where we had a guest book that all visitors to our home could sign. Theo and I wanted to do something similar. Our guests have the opportunity to leave us a handwritten note on our blinds in our dining area, Mrs. Etzel says. These blinds open a dialogue, and this unique guest registry makes us smile each time we re-read the messages from guests weve been blessed to host in our home.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY4 JULY 2014 LUXE AT HOMEHOMEFrom page 3where uplifting words and beautiful photos accent her every view, and she helps clients assemble photos and mementos from their lives through storybooks and digital scrapbooking, among other items. The stories are not always happy stories they are joyful stories, sad stories and heartfelt stories but people come over and share them with me, Mrs. Etzel says. Even though it feels like a lot to look at, the dcor brings joy and evokes positive feelings. She and Mr. Etzel each have their own offices in the home, which both say is a must-have, even though theyve been happily married for 34 years. Mr. Etzel has a history of championing talent in his business, Conditioned Air. Mentoring and helping young minds find their paths in a working world is one of his lifes passions. But running a $30 million corporation doesnt allow for much time to share that experience on an individual basis. In the Etzel familys bright home, ensconced in his office surrounded by photos of loved ones and mementos of a life well lived, Mr. Etzel has penned his forthcoming inspirational businessmanagement book. It can be challenging to navigate the complicated world of business while still maintaining an ethical perspective, he says. Although I do spend a lot of time helping those who want to be successful, I hope this book will reach a broader audience and especially help young people who have recently graduated and are embarking on the next phase of their lives. Prodding him along in his home office were photos of him and Mrs. Etzel when they first met, meaningful letters and even poetry, some of it written by Mr. Etzel, who is also an avid reader. Mr. Etzel says in decades of experience, through successes and challenges in his own businesses, being able to have that very positive, albeit private, place to write in the home helped him put pen to paper. Im often asked about how to balance home and work, and what has worked for me is when youre at work, be at work, but when youre at home, be at home, he says. Having that extra space to be creative in your home is important, and you can be near your family at a moments notice. Connecting the Etzels offices are collages chronicling the lives of the couples two children, Chad and Kristen. A new collage has begun to take shape of the Etzels new grandbaby, Macie Kate. Traveling has led to many of the pieces in the Etzels collection. Mrs. Etzel was attending a Creative Memories convention, and one topic discussed was where there is one chair, there should be another. That hit home with me lets make a connection, share, be good listeners, she says. The couple soon after replaced a piece of original art with the photo canvas they now have of the group of Adirondack chairs from an island in the Bahamas. It made me think of a comfortable connection with friends, and thats how we want our house to be. The Etzels enjoy patronizing the same artists, and the clock in their living-room corner is by the same artists who created their newest table. What really grabs the eye in the kitchen is their original Ben and Jerrys menu and neon ice cream cone light. All these items reflect the couples personalities: fun and easygoing. Oftentimes, Mr. Etzel cooks for family and friends with the neon bouncing off the colors in the rest of the house. The couple also has a collection of animal art throughout the house, including a matching pair of frogs that they decorate for special occasions, representing their whimsical side. Most of all, the Etzels are drawn to what cant be bought, but remembered. I love best the family pictures and things that remind us of where weve traveled and things we have done together as a family, Mr. Etzel says. wn offices in the sa y is a a i is d i o r u n g a ths l d is s ions. m illion t allow s har e anindi ch i A t a g of the t ion.

JEFFREY BEERS... spreads his magic touch NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY6 JULY 2014 DESIGNER Q&A BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWHEN JEFFREY BEERS OF JEFFREY BEERS International is charged with revamping your space, chances are the first words spoken when someone walks into the new space will go something like this: Wow. I didnt even recognize this place. How on earth did you do this? This cant be the same place. These are the kinds of comments most often made about Mr. Beers mission-impossiblestyle projects, from swanky hotels and some of the worlds finest restaurants to spectacular single-family residences. No challenge seems too great, as evidenced by Manhattans iconic Beaux Arts beauty, the Park Central Hotel, and Avenue 5, the restaurant at the Inn on Fifth in Naples. The Park Centrals recent rebirth is reminiscent of why the property along Naples Fifth Avenue South garners jaw-dropping exclamations. Anyone who saw the Avenue 5 eatery when it was still McCabes Irish Pub can attest that Mr. Beers is up to task. Its hard to believe the two spaces ever occupied the same square footage. LUXE caught up with the creative Mr. Beers between his travels to the farthest corners of the globe and asked him about design and decor. Q: Do you have a favorite color scheme, such as greens or blues? Does it vary year after year? A: Ive always been a big fan of blues in all shades. I like the oceanic pallet you get with aquas and deep navys. One of my favorite colors at the moment is persimmon, which is a deep burnt orange. I enjoy the contrast it plays to my typical blue hues. Q: Did you get to travel to Naples while working on Avenue 5? A: Ive spent a bit of time there and near Marco Island. Its a nice, relaxing change from the busy speed of New York City. Q: You had your work cut out in the Park Central Hotel. How did you overcome the many challenges associated with such a massive makeover? A: We broke off 200 rooms to create a separate property within the hotel, a boutique hotel called the Westhouse. As a Beaux Arts hotel built in 1927, there were many instances where I combined rooms, and then the lobby had a onestory space with a fairly low ceiling, so we actually had to create the restaurant and lobby by removing the second floor. Q: What architecture or design trend are you glad to see go by the wayside? A: I was glad to see post-Modernism go, though that was in the s. I just hated that it had no substance, no redeeming value, no true pedigree. I like things that are timeless and have classic aspirations. I dont usually go for the minimalist trends and fads. Q: Other than yourself, which designer would you most like to decorate your home? A: French architect Christian Liaigre. I appreciate his simplistic and clean style that is still full of strong details. I also really admire the work of Candy & Candy based in London. Their work has so much depth and texture without going over the top. Q: What dcor do you like to have in your own home? A: I like to keep it classic. I go for things that are timeless with strong, tailored detailing. I went with a similar aesthetic when designing my office in New York City. Q: What architecture or design books are you reading right now? What would you recommend? A: I usually grab something that catches my eye at the airport gate right before boarding a plane, though I am looking forward to the release of Nancy Braithwaites new book, Simplicity. Q: What is the most difficult project youve ever done, and why?A: Each project comes with its own challenges. Sometimes the clients own vision can be hard to interpret into a functional design. Its a delicate balancing act between the creative artistic side and practical business aspect of a project. Q: What is your favorite type of project to design in a coastal area? A: I definitely love working on resort hotels near the water. Especially something that is cliffside, where I can incorporate multiple levels that cascade down to the water. It gives a property a dramatic effect while still providing amazing views. To read more about Jeffrey Beers and follow his design and dcor news, go to www.jeffreybeers.com.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY8 LUXE LIVING JULY 2014 COVER STORYREASONS FOR RENOVATION VARY wildly when it comes to why homeowners opt for makeovers. Dated dcor, revamping a kitchen, empty nesters suddenly having extra space all can give cause for a re-do. But oftentimes, makeovers happen simply because a home gets a new owner who wants to make his or her own statement. The latter was the case when the a luxury condominium unit at The Biltmore at Bay Colony, Naples, changed hands and the new owner wanted to spice things up. The kitchen makeover was achieved by Naples-based EBL Construction in conjunction with EBL Interiors, which are both divisions of EBL Partners. Jeff Mahon, design and procurement manager for EBL Interiors, has a lot of experience when it comes to project such as this. His three tried-and-true tips for homeowners include designing a kitchen that functions for either one cook or a team of caterers, making sure all components are in scale with the existing space,and, of course, opening the space to include adjacent rooms, if possible. In this case, the redesign team faced some extra challenges. But instead of getting out of the kitchen because they couldnt face the heat, as the saying goes, these designers pulled off a makeover that resulted in one of Naples coolest kitchens. Fortunately, the client was very open to reconfiguring not only the kitchen, but the adjoining living space with a bar and entertainment area. We were challenged due to the special access we needed in the neighboring condominium unit in order to relocate the plumbing system to allow an ergonomic galley kitchen design, says Paul Benson, managing partner at EBL Partners. We needed to get board approval for coring through existing structural members and had to coordinate this work with non-destructive testing methods in order to avoid damaging any existing structural rebar and post tension cables in the structure, he explains. Mr. Bensons favorite aspects of the makeover included a fabulous appliance package by Miele and custom cabintery by the Italian manufacturer Snaidero (the Code series). He also loves the new ceiling. As we were demolishing the old ceiling, we discovered that we had an opportunity to redesign it with one our signature ceiling layouts, he says Although the original budget called for a flat ceiling, he took a gamble and installed something dramatic without the client knowing it. We were thankful that they loved it. Mr. Mahon says the existing layout of the space was typical of the 1990s, a floor plan that was in effect a chopped-up maze. The kitchen layout had appliances, plumbing, workspaces and seating haphazardly scattered about the room, and it was also cut off from the living space by a partition. Taking into consideration the existing immovable and plumbing sources, I redesigned a layout so as to become an integral part of the living space, Mr. Mahon says. And in addition to opening up the room to the living space, I increased operational and storage efficiency. My basic kitchen-design philosophy is to allow one person to easily prepare a family meal and permit a team of caterers to efficiently prepare and serve a party of guests without bumping into one another.

Selecting the appliances is critical to function, form and aesthetics in a makeover especially, as the EBL team says, when executing a beautifully designed contemporary kitchen. The team recommended Miele products that included integrated refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, oven, combi-steam oven, microwave, induction cooktop and external vent hood. The under-counter wine cooler is from Liebherr. The plumbing fixtures used in the makeover are all Franke. Once the design and appliances were selected, the homeowners visited the showroom for the final finish selections Our presentations are all done in changeable 3D color shown via computer on a large-screen TV, Mr. Mahon says. The homeowners wanted handles on the cabinetry, so we selected Code by Snaidero, and they also wanted a highgloss white finish, so we brought out the door samples of all of the white highgloss finishes. After the EBL team explained the price variations from laminate to high-gloss lacquer, the homeowners made their selection: Reflect White high-gloss lacquer.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY10 LUXE LIVING JULY 2014 SHOP TALK BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentKathleen Pica is already well known throughout Collier County for her Auctions Neapolitan business. But home dcor and design enthusiasts have found a new reason to shop with her. Dovetails Estates & Dcor in the design district just down the street from Auctions Neapolitan is the home of some of the areas most unique treasures. Ive been in retail and antiques, consignments and auctions for a long time, Ms. Pica offers as an explanation for her love of and obvious knack for filling her shop with things not found anywhere else. What we have here blends the high end and small gifts, too, she adds about the space that has a very curated look, incorporating painted furniture and all manner of decorative and gift items, some from local resources and others from markets far and wide. Sometimes products become available because customers stop in and express an interest in an item. We cant show everything because our store is small, but like the Tommy Mitchell flowers, we can order whatever the customer wants, Ms. Pica says. We will do our best to get the line in the store, in those cases. The Tommy Mitchell flowers to which she refers are painted and gilded creations made using the lost art known as tole. The lily of the valley, she says, looks as if you could smell it. We also love painted furniture and the rustic-chic French look, she says. And we even have little bits of jewelry priced from $10 and up (some of them way up, she allows). Decorative artist Annie Sloans Chalk Paint products are among the most sought-after items at Dovetails, which is the only distributor of the line of specialty paints and waxes in Collier County. With a velvety matte finish, Chalk Paint works on a wide variety of surfaces, from wood to metal, plastic and terra cotta. The technique is easy and has few rules; it doesnt even require all the usual stripping and sand-Dovetails flies into Naples top shopping spot Kathleen Pica SEE DOVETAILS, 12 a nd t s g a s v e c k i th h ere e re as tole.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY12 JULY 2014 SHOP TALKing in preparation for application. If you like a piece but its wrong for the dcor scheme, you can change it with Chalk Paint, no problem, Ms. Pica says. You can choose from antique finishes and contemporary finishes, French whatever and it comes out absolutely beautiful. Working with Chalk Paint is almost addictive, she adds, because once you do one piece, you want to do another and another since it can go on so many surfaces. Ms. Pica loves the entire line of Annie Sloan products she carries at Dovetails because, as she says, Ms. Sloan creates her products by immersing herself in a culture. Her time in Provence, for example, inspired a collection of lovely candles. A fringe benefit of shopping at Dovetails Estates & Decor is learning about the painting classes available through the store. Introductory classes are four hours, during which students can learn seven different finishes and leave with the confidence to tackle any piece at DOVETAILSFrom page 10ABOVE: Tiny flower pot arrangements from Tommy Mitchell are created using the lost art of tole.
