To help local veterans and their families grieve and reflect on those who served or were lost in the war, the Marco Island Veterans Memorial Fundraising Committee brings The Wall That Heals, a half-scale replica of the Washington, D.C., Vietnam Veterans Memorial, to Veterans Memorial Community Park on Marco from Thursday through Monday, Feb. 12-16. Spanning 250 feet and constructed of powder-coated aluminum, The Wall That Heals is inscribed with the names of all 58,300 U.S. servicemen and women who died in the Vietnam conflict. The replica will be erected in the chevron shape designed by Maya Ying Lin, whose 1981 full-scale design was chosen by a jury of artists and designers selected by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 5-11, 2015 COMMENTARY The numbers gameGet this: There are 24 certified Florida wineries in the Sunshine State, where the sun shines prominently about 250 days a year. Ive been going around telling people we enjoy 300 or more sun days a year days on which the sun shines seven hours or more, I always add, priggishly. But Ive been wrong, apparently, even though nobody from the Florida Chamber of Commerce, an organization celebrated widely for its candor, bald realism and embrace of facts, called to tell me I was wrong. So I had to look up some other numbers, the ones that I think all public school children, almost three million of them in Florida, should be required to memorize by teachers whose annual salaries average only about $47,000 per year. A governor in Florida can make just over $130,000 a year, although the current one, Gov. Rick Scott, has more than $100 million to his name, and turned down his state-mandated salary. Now, Gov. Scott receives a penny a year for his good work, which I think is downright noble. There are only 12 noble people in Florida, which makes them almost as endangered as the ivory-billed woodpecker. The president of the United States makes $400,000 a year, and the commissioner of the NFL makes $44 million per year, but that may be because his first name is Roger, and Rogers everywhere tend to make a hell of a lot of money. Florida has just passed New York to become the third most populous state, with some 20 million residents, and more coming Texas and California have roughly 27 million and 39 million, respectively. That means there is only one Florida certified winery for every 833,333 residents, which I find absolutely appalling from a tippling standpoint. But from an entrepreneurial point of view, its very encouraging. In fact, its an opportunity. For those who want to move here and grow wealthy, I recommend going first into grapes, and then into good wine. Notice I say, good wine. Let me add, good luck, in a state where the spodosols, ultisols and other soils are like the old Monty Python English breakfasts, only with sand, instead of spam. Customer: What have you got?Waitress: Well, theres egg and bacon; egg sausage and bacon; egg and Spam; egg bacon and Spam; egg bacon sausage and Spam; Sam bacon sausage and Spam; Spam egg Spam Spam bacon and Spam; Spam sausage Spam Spam Spam bacon; Spam Spam Spam egg and Spam; Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, baked beans, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam and Spam.Or Lobster thermidor aux crevettes with a mornay sauce served in a provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate, brandy and a fried egg on top. And Spam. By going into grapes, after all, the bold entrepreneur and vintner can also remain robustly tipsy for the next few decades while the oceans rise and wash away portions of South Beach, Pinellas County, the Collier, Lee and Charlotte County barrier islands and many of the 140 golf courses in Palm Beach County, which is the largest land mass county east of the Mississippi River, according to golf.com. Those golf courses range from the Boca Raton Resort & Club purchased along with the Grand Oaks Golf Club by Wayne Huizenga in 1997, to the newish Abacoa in Jupiter, where the Joe Leedesigned, par three 13th is gut check time from the championship tees, 235 yards and all carry over water. All carry over water thats coming up, mind you. But its all sweet, at least in Palm Beach County, where 18 percent of all sugar in the United States is produced, and cane covers about 400,000 acres, or a third of the land mass inhabited by about 1.4 million people, the county government tells us. For the more traditional-minded in Florida who intend to open businesses here and dont know or care what the word viticulture means, there is still room for a McDonalds franchise or 10. After all, there were only 868 of them in Florida as of two years ago, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The AMA wasnt worried about obesity or improper nourishment. Instead, it offered comparative numbers to tanning salons thats right, tanning salons in the Sunshine State. There were 1,261 indoor tanning facilities as of 2013, which means there was one indoor tanning facility for every 15,860 residents. And every one of them perfectly happy to take your money and give you a receipt and a sun tan, which sounds downright dangerous. But not as dangerous as the fact that 11 of the nations 100 most dangerous cities for violent crime exist in Florida, including Lauderdale Lakes, Pompano Beach, Miami Beach, Orlando, Fort Pierce, Daytona Beach, Miami, Fort Myers, Lake Worth, Riviera Beach, and Homestead. In that regard, Florida is number one ahead of California, Texas and New York. But not to worry. Florida has 3.2 times as many federally licensed gun dealerships as post offices, and 99.3 percent of the states 20 million residents live within 10 miles of a gun dealer, according to a study by Mayors Against Gun Violence. Not only that, but more than a million of us have gone out and gotten that concealed carry permit. So we can just open fire on criminals, on skin cancer merchants, on teachers who complain they dont make enough money, and on endangered species such as noble people or ivory-billed woodpeckers. Then we can go have a bottle of good wine, produced right here in a state with more than 300 belay that. In a state with about 250 days of sun, each year. m s y n t roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

The new persnicketiness arises from House Speaker John Boehners invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu to speak before a joint session of Congress in March. The invite is being denounced as a major breach and new low in Washington because he didnt, as had been the traditional practice with such invitations, coordinate with the White House. As far as violations of the separation of powers in the Obama era, its hard to see how this even comes close to registering. Maybe Emily Post wouldnt appr ove, and with a different administration it would be worth honoring every courtesy, but we are far beyond that now. President Barack Obama has a notoriously piratical attitude toward Congress. He deliberately and gleefully trampled all over its role as the lawmaking branch, and cast aside his own as the executor of the laws. He has distorted the constitutional order to suit his whim, and now his allies are peeved that Rep. Boehner made a wayward speaking invitation? According to David Rogers of Politico, the speakers office had tried to coordinate with the White House on a prior 2011 invitation to Mr. Netanyahu and got no response. More to the point: The speaker leads a coequal branch of government. He can invite or not invite anyone he wants, including the president, who is only invited to give the State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress as a matter of tradition. He can invite Phil Robertson or Neil deGrasse Tyson, the archbishop of Canterbury or the pope, just as he pleases. The speaker shouldnt have to wait for White House sign-off for his invitations to address the House any more than the White House should coordinate with him whom it invites into the Oval Office. The context of Mr. Netanyahus visit is, of course, the nuclear talks with Iran. The administration is in a panic to get a deal with Iran, any deal. At this point, it doesnt want to hear a discouraging word from anyone, least of all Mr. Netanyahu, who is such a powerful communicator. Its not as though the White House opposes on principle interventions by foreign leaders into our Iran policy. The legislation in question is bipartisan, and reasonable enough. Sponsored by Sens. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., and Mark Kirk, R-Ill., it would restore sanctions that have been loosened on Iran in the event there is no deal by the new June deadline for negotiations. And it would steadily tighten them thereafter. The White House is worried that the prospect of more sanctions will destroy its delicate dynamic with Iran, although Iran has continued to extend its tentacles in Yemen, Syria and Iraq without any fear of spooking us. In a congressional hearing last week, Sen. Menendez lambasted the administration line on the sanctions bill that sounds like talking points that come straight out of Tehran. That is from a leading foreign-policy voice of the presidents own party. At least the unwelcome guest, Bibi Netanyahu, will be more polite. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.The primary circus rolls back into townWhy do I loathe the circus? Let me count the ways. Clowns: creepy. Animals: smelly and dangerous. High-wire acts: sweaty-palmed affirmations of my own acute acrophobia. Cotton candy: cloying and icky. Given this aversion to the Big Top, it is a wonder that I am irresistibly drawn to what surely has become the latest incarnation of the Greatest Show on Earth: the quadrennial race for the Republican presidential nomination.The parallels involving the circus and the Republican contest are oh so obvious.Candidates: creepy. Policies: smelly and dangerous. Sarah Palin: a veritable Flying Wallenda every time she approaches a high wire, which in her case is a speakers podium. Finger-wagging religiosity and moralizing: cloying and icky. And now that the Republican ringmaster, Mitt Romney, has removed himself from the contest, the prospect for wild and wacky mischief is enormous. Heres how things are looking, early on, for potential candidates. Jeb Bush: Mr. Bush has all but announced his intention to run, but the expected Bush boomlet has yet to materialize. He can raise oodles of money, but his early poll numbers (a 16 percent favorable rating in one survey) suggest that the hangover from the George W. Bush years and Jebs protracted absence from the political scene may be greater obstacles than had been anticipated. Chris Christie: Gov. Christie like Mr. Bush has access to money (even more so now that Mr. Romney has withdrawn), and he has substantial name recognition. But it remains to be seen if the governors in-your-face New Jersey persona will play well in more genteel provinces, such as Iowa and South Carolina. Marco Rubio: Floridas junior senator has, according to several accounts, signaled to staff and supporters that he is ready to run. A big problem for Sen. Rubio will be separating himself from Mr. Bush, who has been a mentor. Attacking his former patron too harshly will present all sorts of loyalty questions about Sen. Rubio. But if he doesnt get some distance from Mr. Bush, and get it quickly, some will begin to ask why he is even in the race. Scott Walker: The Wisconsin governor wowed the Republican faithful at a recent gathering in Iowa. Still, he remains a bland and uninspiring figure. If he should make it to the White House, Gov. Walker would be the first president since Harry S Truman to lack a college degree. Rand Paul: The elfin senator from Kentucky is the most interesting candidate in either party. His views and positions are all over the place, which is rather refreshing. Sen. Pauls quirkiness has earned him followers on college campuses. But capturing the hearts of our nations young is not the best strategy for winning a presidential nomination. (See: Eugene McCarthys 1968 bid for the Democratic nomination.) Rick Perry: Mr. Perry, a former governor of Texas, approved adept at making a fool of himself during the 2012 presidential primary season. He says he has wised up, and he sports a new pair of horn-rimmed eyeglasses (the kind smart folks wear) to prove it. Did I mention that he currently is under indictment in his home state? Mike Huckabee: The former Arkansas governor/Baptist preacher/Fox News pundit says asking a Christian to accept same-sex marriage is like asking someone whos Jewish to start serving bacon-wrapped shrimp in their deli. He incessantly fusses about the corrosive influence of Beyonce on our great nation. His new book is titled God, Guns, Grits and Gravy. Good grief. At last count, there are almost two dozen presidential hopefuls on the Republican side. For those into things like diversity, please note that one of these aspirants a daffy neurosurgeon by the name of Ben Carson is African American and two former HewlettPackard chief executive Carly Fiorina and the aforementioned Mrs. Palin are women. And while were talking diversity, dont forget Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana. Gov. Jindal is the son of Indian immigrants. He signaled his presidential intentions recently by holding an oldtimey Christian prayer rally over which he presided like a non-perspiring, nonsobbing Jimmy Swaggart while wearing blue jeans and a HUGE Elvis Presleystyle belt buckle. Can I get an amen, brothers and sisters? Perhaps the early going of the Republican presidential run is best summed up by the irrepressible Mrs. Palin the undisputed high priestess of blather who in alluding to Hillary Clinton in a recent speech said, This is to forgo a conclusion, right, is to scare us off and convince us that a pantsuit can crush patriots? Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, the Republican circus bigger and better than ever is back in town. M m d r t p bill CORNWELLSpecial to Florida Weekly

Whats a Southwest Floridian to do? Cupids arrow falls on a Saturday this year, which is perfect for non-binding romantic plans. But what about couples that want to tie the knot on the biggest day of the year for romance? Should they have to wait until Monday to make it official? Not a chance at least in Lee County, where the Clerk of Courts Office will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 14. Its usually very joyous and energized, Rita Miller, the offices community relations manager, says about Valentines Day in the office. We like to accommodate people who would like to get married. On the other hand, the Collier County Clerk of Courts Office doesnt really make a big deal about Valentines Day, someone there told me. So theyll be closed come Valentines Day. Pragmatic? Sure. But party-poopers where cupid is concerned? Definitely. While considering the stances of the two counties, we might also consider the plight of St. Valentine: In one version of his martyrdom, he secretly married Christian couples after the Emperor Claudius outlawed the marriage of young people because he felt unmarried soldiers were better warriors. Whos the Grinch now? And for me, I see Valentines Day as marking a mid-point in tourist season when we all would welcome a nice, feelgood distraction from grinding traffic, condo commandoes and hour-long restaurant waitlists. Wouldnt some weddings at the courthouse on Valentines Day be nice? We also shouldnt forget that a good number of courthouse weddings are not unplanned and impulsive. Many committed couples simply lack the means for a blowout bash, or even a backyard barbecue. A weekend holiday adds some flavor to a bureaucratic formality without the couple having to take a day off work, giving them a few breaths to savor their newly bound state before reporting back to the office on Monday. For about $150, a couple can walk out of the Lee County Courthouse as husband and wife, holding a commemorative certificate and a flash drive of photos. Ms. Miller tells me that while they have a brand new wedding room devoted to such ceremonies, officiants are also happy to pronounce couples married on the courthouse steps or outside under the beautiful banyan tree nearby. Theres also a discount for couples presenting proof of having completed pre-marital counseling. Brides and grooms should keep in mind that the state of Florida requires a three-day waiting period between issuance of the marriage license and the ceremony if the couple has not completed counseling. Couples who are already legally and happily wed can celebrate their union on Valentines Day with help from Friends of Lovers Key. The nonprofit group is holding a vow-renewal ceremony at the state park on the southern end of Estero Island. Its a fun, low-stakes romantic event that removes the Valentines Day guesswork for those whove been paying bills together for years. At $75 per couple, I think a vow renewal on Lovers Key says a lot more to your beloved than dinner at a crowded restaurant or a bouquet of ultimately perishable flowers. The one time my husband and I did decide to venture out for Valentines Day, the only reservation we could wrangle the week before was at 9 p.m., when the wait staff was already exhausted and still had no end in sight. The prix-fixe menu was unspectacular and expensive, and we rolled out 2.5 hours later. Friends of Lovers Key offers its Valentines Day vow renewals ceremonies at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Both include brunch/ lunch, a champagne toast and dancing on the beach. How romantic is that? Ultimately, Im saying we should leave some room for the people who really feel the spirit to act on it. Everyone should be at least a little excited this year, because its the first Valentines Day that same-sex couples can be as impetuous as us straight folk. I suppose we cant expect county government to get excited about much of anything, but I appreciate Lee Countys spirit. Couples who want to marry at the Lee County Courthouse on Saturday, Feb. 14, are strongly encouraged to reserve a time by calling 533-5007. Those who would like to participate in Friends of Lovers Key vow renewal ceremony should call (708) 359-0466.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 5-11, 2015 has 21,294 golf holes, the most in America. You see it, you covet it, thereby an estimated 1.6 million people identify themselves as golfers in Florida. Cross that with the census and one in every dozen Floridians plays golf. The National Golf Foundation figures 40 million rounds of golf are played in the Sunshine State each year. When you start looking into the state of golf, you see Florida hits the green. The states golf industry supports 132,532 jobs and $3.6 billion in wage income. The World Golf Foundation shared these numbers with Florida Weekly, numbers from the 2013 Florida Golf Economic Impact report, conducted just in time for Florida Golf Day, Feb. 5, when golf industry leaders go to Tallahassee to talk to members of the state legislature and governors office about the impact golf has on the state economy and way of life, so when they are making laws and regulations that impact golf, they consider the size and scope of the industry. Golf may be seen as a business sport, but its also a beast of a business. And Florida holds the title as the golf state. Golf has created an identity for the state internationally, worldwide, where Florida is viewed as the golf state in the United States, and in fact, it is No. 1 in the U.S. from the standpoint of the number of golf facilities and the number of tourists who come to the state each year specifically to play golf. So its created an identity for Florida that has really created international prominence for the state, says Steve Mona, CEO of the World Golf Foundation. Such a reputation has attracted leading golf organizations to headquarter here: PGA Tour in Ponte Vedra Beach; World Golf Foundation, including the World Golf Hall of Fame and The First Tee, in St. Augustine; LPGA in Daytona Beach; PGA of America in Palm Beach Gardens; National Golf Foundation in Jupiter; Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman have their headquarters in the state, with Palmer in Orlando, Nicklaus in West Palm Beach and Norman in Jupiter; Golf Channel in Orlando; Golfweek magazine in Orlando... the magnetism of Florida as a golf mecca goes on and on. I could have established my ANNIKA Academy anywhere in the country, but decided Florida was best, says Annika Sorenstam, World Golf Hall of Famer and founder of her namesake golf and fitness instruction academy in Orlando. The warm weather, excellent golf courses and high number of inbound flights from across the nation and around the world made it an easy choice. In total, the state hosted 17 professional golf tournaments in 2014: six PGA Tour, three Champions Tour, one Web.com Tour, one LPGA Tour, one Legends Tour and five Symetra Tour events. On a national level, golf is larger than the spectator sports industry and the performing arts industry. Im sure thats true also in Florida, without question, Mr. Mona says. Sharing some math he has bookmarked in his head, he adds, The economic impact of golf nationally is right at about $70 billion, its a little less than that, so Florida basically, the easiest way to look at Florida, more than onetenth of the entire U.S. golf economy is right here in Florida. Thats pretty impressive when you think there are 49 other states.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 5-11, 2015 NEWS A9 erful People in Golf list in Golf Inc. magazine for 14 consecutive years. In 2014, he played 25 rounds of golf. He intends to double that this year. He says he has been fortunate to have played courses such as Augusta National, Pebble Beach, Cypress Point, Winged Foot, Pinehurst No. 2, Oakland Hills and Oakmont, alongside the likes of Greg Norman, Sam Snead and Kathy Whitworth, but his most memorable round of golf was one he played with his wife, son and daughter on a 9-hole course. They were on vacation, they put money in a little jar because there was no one in the little clubhouse, went out and played on-your-honor golf. Golf enthusiasts tend to love the game for the great outdoors, the social element, a thirst for the 19th hole, the competitive nature, the athletic pursuit of perfecting your swing, the concentration such an endeavor entails it removes you from everything else you have going on in your life, you have to concentrate, its a complete release from everyday life, another way to slip into Florida nirvana. Thats why those in the golf world are not surprised by the big numbers the game puts up. They know the power of an invitation, and they foresee growth, Fore! Pam Swensen did not grow up playing golf. She started after college. Now she intends to play as long as she can walk, and when she cant walk, shell take a cart. The CEO of the Executive Womens Golf Association, Ms. Swensen received an International Network of Golf honors award, considered an Oscar in the industry. She sees golf as more than hitting a ball in a hole in the fewest strokes possible. People who are involved in golf, in the business of golf, are really good corporate citizens and they have the best interests of the communities that they reside in, in the forefront, and I dont think thats always told, says Ms. Swensen, pointing out water conservation, land preservation and wildlife protection. A 2007 study shows Florida golf makes a charitable impact of $312 million annually. The EWGA has 11 chapters in Florida, up and down the east and west coasts, a few in the middle, adding up to more chapters than any other state. In Ms. Swensens organization, 30 to 35 women hit a hole-in-one every year. I look at my organization, and were small, relatively speaking, when you think of the PGA Tour and the PGA of America, but our members spend on average about $4,000 a year on golfrelated expenses and thats considerable, Ms. Swensen says. When you look at Florida alone with EWGA, an average chapter spends about $500,000 in their local community each year and when you look across the association, its about $66 million, so thats a considerable economic impact for women who have taken up the game. They dont work in the sport but theyre there because they love and believe in the connections and the fun and the camaraderie and sure, they meet great people and it opens up doors for business relationships. Ms. Swensen feels all women should have golf as a skillset on their resumes, because its a conversation starter and its a door opener and it separates you from all the other women out there who cant talk the talk or walk the walk when it comes to golf, she says. It just puts you on a different level with people in conversation. It doesnt matter whether you ever play with them or not, youre just looked at a little bit differently, in a positive way. Greg Nathan, senior vice president of the National Golf Foundation, the research arm of the industry, does not find Florida golf numbers surprising, saying Floridas an obvious place people like to vacation, buy a second home, retire, and thats been the trend ever since Flagler started developing the swamp, so it makes sense that a tremendous amount of golf would be played here. He thinks there could be more golfers teeing up. Heres his train of thought: You know someone in the insurance business, or who does personal financial planning, you have a friend who does that sort of thing and when they go out for a dinner party or to drink cocktails, inevitably they will talk about what they do and talk about the benefits of what they do. Golf has had its challenges, from my point of view, to a great degree because golf isnt sold, Mr. Nathan says. I very, very rarely see a golf professional, or a general manger, or someone who works in the golf course business who will take on the same type of evangelism that the insurance salesman will, or that the money manager will I find it odd that the passion that golf generates among folks who work in this business, who work at the 15,500 U.S. facilities, that you dont really see people who work in golf selling the game to people, saying to someone they just met or a friend, Do you play golf? And they say, No, I dont. I want to hear people in golf saying, Well, why dont you play? And then saying, Oh, come on, let me take you out. Mr. Nathan feels many people find golf intimidating and have a fear of embarrassment. He says anything those in the golf world can do to make golf more welcoming, more approachable, more inviting and less serious would be good for golf. There are two things that every business and every industry needs to be successful innovation and sales. I know of no business that can be successful without innovation and sales, Mr. Nathan says. Golf can do better. One of 100 worldwide course design ranking panelists for GOLF Magazine, Mr. Nathan also writes a blog, Mayor of Crazy Town, the name stemming from a meeting at GOLF Magazine where he remembers an editor reading letters from readers aloud and saying something like, These are the lunatics in the game we work for. They devour the content. They are eager to improve and test the tips in our pages on the practice tee and on the course. They dream of the great places theyll visit on their next golf trip. They are insatiably curious about the new equipment. They drive the golf economy and we are here to serve this group of millions who collectively form a virtual community of golfers called Crazy Town. Mr. Nathan confessed to his colleagues that he learned how to play golf from reading the magazine and acknowledged himself as being obsessed enough with the game to be the Mayor of Crazy Town. He says nobody in his family played when he was growing up, but when he was exposed to the game, he had a positive experience and my soul was open to it. Now he probably plays 30 to 35 rounds a year, he plays with business contacts, he plays when traveling, he prioritizes it because he loves it. A pay-for-play form of recreation, golf must compete for your time and your dime against every other form of recreation, but Mr. Nathan says if you think its fun, you will make it a priority. He says its not for everyone, but it deserves to be tried. Golf is the greatest game in the world. Those who are committed to the game, who would identify themselves as golfers, theyre lucky people, he says. I get a lot of satisfaction out of exposing the game to people who might not otherwise feel comfortable doing so, and you just never know, without exposing somebody to it, you never know if they might get the bug, and most people who have the bug, they never lose it.

This is the traveling walls second visit to Marco, the smallest city on the walls 2015 tour schedule. In 2011, almost 15,000 people visited the memorial over the course of its four-day stay on the island. Visitors to the wall on its first stop here donated more than fives times the average donation of visitors in other locations, according to Marco resident Lee Rubenstein, chairman of the islands Veterans Memorial Fundraising Committee. Mr. Rubenstein is counting on the fact that the exhibit has been expanded to five days and occurs during the height of tourist season to surpass the head count from three years ago. A temporary education center accompanies the wall and contains display cases with photos of servicemen and women whose names are on the wall, letters and memorabilia left at the wall in Washington, D.C., and a chronological overview of the Vietnam War. The opening ceremony for The Wall That Heals will coincide with a celebration of the completion of the Freedom Fountain at Veterans Memorial Community Park. The fountain is the third phase of the city park. Its unveiling will be followed by remarks by Capt. Wayne Smith, a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot who survived five years at Hoa Lo Prison, also known as Hanoi Hilton, alongside U.S. Sen. John McCain. Visitors to the Marco exhibit will also be able to view a replica nuclear submarine and other military vehicles thanks to The Museum of Military Memorabilia in Naples. The Wall That Heals will be open 24 hours a day from 7 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 12, to 2 p.m. Monday, Feb. 16 while it is on Marco.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA20 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 5-11, 2015 Big-tent mentalityThe Project Theater Board at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Mass., decided in January to cancel its upcoming annual presentation of the feminist classic Vagina Monologues. The all-womens college recently declared it would admit males who lived and identified as female (regardless of genitalia), and the basis for cancellation of Vagina Monologues was that the unmodifiable script is not inclusive of those females that it covers only experiences of females who actually have vaginas.No good deed goes unpunished Kathi Fedden filed a $30 million wrongful death lawsuit in December against Suffolk County, N.Y., police after her 29-year-old son, driving drunk in 2013, fatally crashed into an office. She reasons that the sons death is the fault of the police officer who stopped him earlier that evening and who must have noticed he was already drunk but did not arrest him. The officer, who knew the son as the owner of a popular-with-police local delicatessen, merely gave the son a lift home, but the son later drove off in his mothers car, in which he had the fatal crash. A generous resident (name withheld by KDKA-TV) of South Oakland, Pa., in seasonal spirit the week before Christmas, invited a pregnant, homeless woman she had met at a Rite Aid store home with her for a hot shower, a change of clothes and a warm bed for the night. The resident was forced to call police, though, when she went to check up on her guest and discovered her engaging in sexual activity with the residents pit bull. The guest, enraged at being caught, vandalized the home before officers arrived to arrest her.The new normalThe website/smartphone app Airbnb, launched in 2008, connects travelers seeking lodging with individuals offering private facilities at certain prices. About a year ago, entrepreneur Travis Laurendine launched a similar smartphone app, Airpnp, to connect people walking around select cities and needing access to a toilet, listing residents who make their utilities available, with description and price. Laurendine told the New York Post in January that New York City is a promising market (though his two best cities are New Orleans and Antwerp, Belgium). The prices vary from free to $20, and the facilities range from a sweet-smelling room stocked with reading material to a barely maintained toilet (with no lavatory), but, said one supplier, sometimes people really need to go, and this will have to do.Government in action Kentucky, one of Americas financially worse-off states, annually spends $2 million of taxpayer money on salaries and expenses for 41 jailers who have no jails to manage. Research by the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting in January noted that Kentuckys constitution requires elected jailers, notwithstanding that 41 counties have shut down their jails and house detainees elsewhere via contracts with sheriffs. (Though the jailers may be called upon to transport prisoners from time to time, the 41 counties are mostly small ones with few detainees.) Several jailers have full-time side jobs, and one jail-less jailer employs five deputies while another has 11 part-timers. A.K. Verma was an assistant executive engineer working for Indias central public works department in 1990 with 10 years on the job when he went on leave and had still not returned by the end of 2014, when the government finally fired him. He had submitted numerous requests for extensions during the ensuing 24 years, but all were denied, though no agency or court managed to force him back to work. (Indias bureaucracy is generally acknowledged to be among the most dysfunctional in Asia.)Ironies After a heavy snowstorm in Frankfort, Kentucky (the state capital), in November, with many absences reported, the state labor policy agency (called the Labor Cabinet) was among the agencies needing snow removal at its headquarters more promptly than overworked cleanup crews could provide. A call was circulated for volunteers to go outside and shovel snow, but that job was apparently too laborious for the labor agency; there was only one taker. The Tampa Bay Times (formerly St. Petersburg Times), reeling financially as many newspapers are, pledged several properties it owns (including its downtown headquarters) to borrow $30 million last year from a distressedproperty lender and now announces an intention to pay back that loan by selling the properties. As reported by the local St. Petersblog website, the sore-thumb loan was almost exactly the amount the Times paid in 2002 for naming rights to the Tampa concert-and-hockey venue, the Ice Palace (which became the St. Petersburg Times Forum and is now Amalie Arena). Thus, St. Petersblog wrote, do the math, concluding that the Tampa Bay Times was pressured to sell its own headquarters building in order to pay for the 12-year privilege of being able to name someone elses building.Least-competent criminalsNot Well-Thought-Out: (1) Shane Lindsey, 32, allegedly robbed the Citizens Bank in New Kensington, Pa., on Jan. 14 and ran off down the street, but was arrested about 15 minutes later a few blocks away, having stopped off at Eazers Restaurant and Deli to order chicken and biscuits. (2) Jeffrey Wood, 19, was arrested in the act of robbing a 7-Eleven in Northeast Washington, D.C., on Jan. 10 because two plainclothes detectives were in the store at the time (though the police badge of one was hanging from a chain around her neck). As soon as the man announced, This is a stickup, the detective drew her gun and yelled, Stop playing. I got 17 (meaning a gun with 17 bullets).

Once used strictly as ornaments and adornments, the oldest recorded glass relics were found in Egypt and dated back to 3500 B.C. Over the centuries its strength has been put to the test as evidenced in the many stained-glass windows within cathedrals that survived wars and natural disasters. But it wasnt until the late 18th and 19th centuries that glass became a material of true utility. Used for a range of devices in the medical field, glass was also found to be a terrific insulator of electricity. In the last few decades, glass as an art medium has taken a back seat to its more industrious applications like electrical components in computers and optical lenses in digital cameras. But the beauty and trade have not been lost. Evidence of its historic diversity and beauty is preserved through the efforts of Naples Historical Society. Historic Palm Cottage, the oldest house in Naples and home of the Naples Historical Society, recently received a new antique glass donation from Naples residents Bill and Barbara Meek, making the societys permanent cut and heirloom glass collection a true local treasure. At corner of 12th Avenue South in historic downtown Naples, the house museum celebrates glass with several unique glass collectibles including vases, bowls, teacups and platters. A tour of the cottage is the perfect daytime excursion where you can learn more about the colorful Naples community. New to the heirloom glass collection is a charming glass dish that features what locals call the Naples pattern. It has become part of the 28-piece collection on display in the dining room. The collection is getting great attention from tour groups because it reflects so many different glass art styles in an array of vibrant colors and ornamental designs, lead docent Dottie Giles says. Limoges is one of the finest hard paste porcelains in the world. Crafted in France, the porcelain is made up of feldspar, quartz and kaolin. It is coated with a glaze that gives the Limoges a unique beauty that shows no sign of cracking even after 100 years. The Limoges teacups, saucers and platters on display at Historic Palm Cottage have been identified as dating back to before World War I. Slag glass, which originated in Europe, is created by taking the waste content of metal ores during iron smelting (slag) and adding it to molten glass. This technique dates back to the Victorian era, around the 1880s. During that time period, the most common color of slag was purple. Historic Palm Cottage has nine unique pieces of slag glass on display dating back to 1876 Japanese Imari originated in Kyushu, the largest Japanese island. From the island, it was exported from the port of Imari, which is how it got its name. This type of porcelain includes artistic scenes of flowers, landscapes or animals. There are four pieces of Japanese Imari on display in Historic Palm Cottage.

What You Should Know About Macular Degeneration But Probably DontBy now youve probably heard of the eye condition called macular degeneration. There are two types the dry type, which is managed with vitamins, and the wet type, which is treated with injections into the eye. For those of you with the wet type, did you ever wonder why your retina specialist keeps asking you to come back in a month for your next injection? Its because the medication that is being injected (Avastin, Lucentis or Eylea) only lasts for about a month in the eye. But dont you wish there was another option instead of getting a needle into the eye every month or so? Something that could improve your vision and that didnt hurt or cause red eyes? It turns out that something actually exists. Its a laser procedure called feeder vessel treatment. The procedure often takes less than 10 minutes to perform and is done in the clinic. Its not a replacement for your injections but can be used in combination with your injections, sometimes helping to reduce the total number of injections. Heres the other piece of good news. Its available right here in Fort Myers at the Eye Centers of Florida. There are only a handful of retina centers in the world that offer this procedure. Ours at the Eye Centers of Florida is one of them.

The group will serve transgendered children, teens and adults alongside their parents, families, friends and allies. The first meeting is at 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 7; starting in March, meetings will be at 3 p.m. on the third Saturday of every month. The group will meet at the MHASWF office at 2335 Ninth St. N. Ms. Smidova and Ms. Lowry both run support groups in Fort Myers and have a number of transgendered clients who travel from Naples and Marco Island for their services. People often travel from as far as Tampa and Miami to participate in their groups. We have new members who come in every month, Ms. Lowry says. A lot of these individuals want to go to as many meetings as they can, so Im really hopeful for Naples. Between 2 percent and 5 percent of the total population identifies as transgendered. In a study by the San Francisco Department of Health, about half of the transgendered participants reported employment discrimination and more than 80 percent reported verbal abuse because of their gender identity or orientation. The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and the National Center for Transgender Equality found the rate for suicide attempts among transgendered people is 41 percent, which is half the rate of the gay, lesbian and bi-sexual population and 10 times that of the overall U.S. population. A lot of trans people live in poverty and are homeless. Its really difficult to reach them, Ms. Lowry says. To help them connect with the local transgendered population, she adds, she and Ms. Smidova have reached out to Collier County school psychologists, pediatricians and endocrinologists, professionals likely to encounter those in the community who are transgendered or are struggling with their gender identity. Ms. Smidova has a number of graduate degrees and a doctoral degree from The Institute of Family Therapy in Prague and is currently working on another doctoral degree from Nova Southeastern University. She has also earned her certification as a Transgender Care Professional from the International Transgender Certification Association. Ms. Lowry is a Florida-licensed mental health counselor and is also a certified Transgender Care Professional. For more information about the new support group, call MHASWF at 2615405. SMIDOVA
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA32 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 5-11, 2015 Study shows link between insomnia and hypertension THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATIONInsomniacs who take longer than 14 minutes to fall asleep face a greater risk of hypertension, according to new research published in the American Heart Association journal Hypertension. The study is the first to test whether insomnia with physiological hyperarousal, defined as a longer time to fall asleep, is linked to hypertension. We observed a strong correlation between the degree of physiological hyperarousal and hypertension, says Dr. Xiangdong Tang, co-author of the study and professor of sleep medicine at West China Hospital, Sichuan University in Chengdu, China, where the study was conducted. Those insomniacs who were hyperalert during the day and unable to relax and fall asleep during the Multiple Latency Sleep Test had the higher risk of hypertension, according to co-author Dr. Alexandros Vgontzas, professor of sleep research and treatment in the Department of Psychiatry at Penn sylvania State University College of Medicine in Hershey, Penn. Insomnia is the most prevalent sleep disorder in the general population. Onefourth to one-third of the general population complains of difficulty falling asleep; about 10 percent have chronic complaints and seek medical help for insomnia. Researchers studied 219 chronic insomniacs and 96 normal sleepers (average age 40 and more than 60 percent women). They defined chronic insomnia as difficulty sleeping for more than six months. The participants spent one night monitored in a sleep lab and took the MLST the next day. Monitoring included four 20-minute nap opportunities at two-hour intervals, at 9 and 11 a.m. and 1 and 3 p.m. Half the participants took 14 minutes or less to fall asleep and half took more than 14 minutes to fall asleep. Those that took more than 14 minutes to fall asleep were considered hyperaroused. Hypertension was based on blood pressure measures or a physicians diagnosis. Researchers controlled for confounding factors such as obesity, sleep apnea, diabetes, smoking, alcohol and caffeine use. Chronic insomnia combined with an MSLT score greater than 14 minutes increased the odds of hypertension by 300 percent. MSLT scores greater than 17 minutes increased the odds by 400 percent. Long latency times to fall asleep during the day may be a reliable index of the physiological hyperarousal and biological severity of the disorder, Dr. Vgontzas says. Traditionally, insomnia has been perceived as a nighttime sleep disorder; however, several studies suggest its a state of 24-hour hyperarousal. A more biologically severe type of insomnia is associated with 24-hour hyperarousal and significant cardiometabolic consequences like hypertension. The less severe form has primarily psychological roots. Feeling hyperalert or sleepy doesnt allow people to function at their best, feel well during the day or sleep well at night, Dr. Vgontzas says. Although insomniacs complain of fatigue and tiredness during the day, their problem is that they cannot relax and that they are hyper, he says. Measures that apply in sleep-deprived normal sleepers napping, caffeine use or other stimulants to combat fatigue do not apply in insomniacs. In fact, excessive caffeine worsens the hyperarousal. New pediatric urgent care center on its wayGolisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida and Miami Childrens Hospital have announced plans to open a 17,000-square-foot pediatric urgent care center at 3375 Pine Ridge Road in North Naples. The center will replace a smaller specialty clinic that opened four years ago off Immokalee Road. More than 1,000 patients a month visit the existing clinic for rehabilitation care and a variety of specialty medical services for children. The main driver of this was for us to be able to have space to provide enhanced services to our patients, says CEO Kathy Bridge-Liles. Were out of space for rehab. Were out of space for the sub-specialists. Officials predict the number of children in the Golisano clinics service area will increase by 6.2 percent over the next five years. At the same time, the areas population of women of child-bearing age (18 to 44 years old) is expected to grow 4.3 percent, according to the health system. The new facility will employ Miami Childrens Hospital staff for urgent care needs. It could open as soon as December 2015.

As a destination for national health-care meetings, Naples has been the setting for two major forums within the past three weeks that have drawn with hundreds of industry trustees, physician leaders and administrators. Along with myself, Chief of Staff Kevin Cooper, our board chair Mariann MacDonald and board members Michelle Barrett, Terry Flynn, Elizabeth Foster, Tom Gazdic, Dr. Kay Gow, Dr. John Lewis and Robert Moses all learned from and shared best practices with our peers from other systems and nationally recognized luminaries. Not surprisingly, there were several common themes, among them: Demographics are changing Locally, we have a growing community that is bimodal in distribution. One growing sector, over-65-year-olds, 80 percent of who are frequent Internet users, still have an attraction to traditional medical care. The other growing sector is that of younger families looking for newer, quicker, more convenient and less expensive ways to connect with a health-care provider; they will use doctorondemand. com or visit a CVS, Walgreens, Walmart or something similar when their traditional medical office is not available. NCH will be positioned to serve both populations as we match our resources to the migration. Healthy communities need a backbone institution to lead. Healthcare leaders must bring together other organizations, from not-for-profits to small and large employers, to create an environment where the healthy choice is the preferred choice. This is exactly what the Southwest Florida Blue Zones initiative is designed to do. Keeping the 80 percent of us who are well as healthy as possible is more cost effective than anything else our nation has tried. Medical errors continue to plague the system It is tragic that medical error is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. I shared with our peers the great work our team ICU, ER, nursing and support folks has done to decrease the death rate for sepsis (blood infection) from 34 percent to high single digits. Disruptive changes confront health care from outside the profession Information technologies, wearable monitoring devices and placing the patient in the center all are realities, as is increased transparency and cost awareness among smarter patients who shop for health-care value. Change is all around us. My parents used to tell my brothers and me, Nothing happens when you stay home. And they were right. Today, sharing our knowledge and learning from experts from around the nation will help us help the people we care about most in Southwest Florida live longer, happier and healthier lives.

Keynote speaker Dr. Michael Okun, medical director for the National Parkinson Foundation, is the author of Parkinsons Treatment: 10 Secrets to a Happier Life. He is also professor, administrative director and co-director of the University of Florida Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration. With more than 1 million people in the United States living with Parkinsons disease, chances are you know someone who has it or, you may even have Parkinsons yourself. According to the National Parkinson Foundation, approximately 60,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. The journey of the Parkinsons disease patient is fueled by hope, and I have come to realize that it is hope that ultimately leads to their happiness, Dr. Okun says. It is the hope that will continue to define them through the sometimes difficult journey. He offers these tips to Parkinsons patients and their loved ones: Do not be defined by the disease. Possess and grow strong core values. Embrace family and friends. Develop a vision for who you want to be, and live that vision. Share the journey with Parkinsons and other chronic disease patients and their families. Be aware of drugs, timing and side effects. Exercise every day. Be ready for an unplanned hospitalization. Choose an empathetic doctor. Visit an interdisciplinary team of Parkinsons specialists at least once a year. Be aware that making your brain electric might one day be helpful to your disease symptoms. Ask frequently about new drugs, surgeries and behavioral treatments. Maximize the symptomatic treatment of your disease, and do not be consumed by the search for a cure. Beware those who will try to hijack your hope to make a dollar (glutathione therapy, chelation, fee for stem cell treatment, miracle cures, etc.).

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickKeeper did not want me to even lift his lip to look at his teeth, and his breath was terrible. It had been only six months since his last dental exam and cleaning, but clearly something was wrong. Turns out that not only did he have an abscessed tooth, but dental X-rays also showed a large amount of bone resorption, a bone remodeling process that invades the tooth structure. Its normal when it involves the loss of baby or puppy teeth, but veterinarians are seeing it more often in the permanent teeth of dogs. Keeper had to have three teeth removed. Keepers experience is just one of the reasons that veterinarians are adding dental X-rays to the professional cleaning process. His veterinarian, Gershon L. Alaluf, DVM, explains: When you look at a dogs teeth and see tartar, thats just the tip of the iceberg. It doesnt tell you whats going on underneath the gumline. Usually theres infection, and on dental X-rays we can see pockets of infection, plus root resorption and bone resorption. Oral and dental disease are by far the most common problems affecting dogs and cats. By the time they are 3 years old, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats have some form of gum disease. Tartar isnt just ugly; combined with bad breath, its a signal that your pets teeth and gums are probably infected, painful or both. Other signs include difficulty eating, constant drooling and lethargy. Unfortunately, dogs and cats cant tell us that their mouths hurt, so all too often they go without treatment because a professional cleaning is considered cosmetic rather than medically important. But oral bacteria dont affect just the mouth. Over time, they can cause infections that enter the bloodstream and spread throughout the body, damaging organs such as the heart, liver and kidneys. What can you do? Weve said it before and well say it again: Brushing is the No. 1 way to help keep dental disease at bay. If you start when your puppy or kitten is young, hell get used to it and accept it more readily. Here are some options to prevent tooth decay if your pet says no way to brushing: Wipe the teeth with a moist gauze pad or dental wipe. That can help to remove the plaque that hardens into tartar. Ask your veterinarian about gels, rinses or sprays that contain chlorhexidine or zinc ascorbate cysteine (ZAC) compounds. The enzymes in chlorhexidine products dissolve plaque and help reduce bacteria, and ZAC compounds encourage collagen production to stimulate repair of gum tissue. Lay in a supply of tartar-control chews and toys (available for dogs and cats) that contain enzymes to help reduce plaque. Cut back on the daily skinny vanilla lattes and put the cost toward your pets dental care. At $3.25 a pop, you can save more than enough over a years time to cover the cost of a cleaning and any necessary extractions. An annual professional cleaning that gets below the gumline something that cant be done with a non-anesthetic shine-up can help ensure that dental problems are found early and treated, which saves you money and saves your pet unnecessary discomfort. Even better, you may find that once his mouth doesnt hurt anymore, your pet is acting young again, for the first time in a long time. Dental disease left untreated is painful and may even shorten your pets life.

MarineMax Naples I 1146 6th Avenue South I Naples, FL 34102 I www.marinemax.com/naples THE DIVA DIARIESFrom Emmas lips to mine Its red carpet season again and your diva is all over it. I loved the Golden Globes last month Tina Fey and Amy Pohler were funny and fabulous as usual, while I gave my best-dressed nod to Julianne Moore in a silver Givenchy gown that looked like it had been sewn together by angels with Christmas tree tinsel. My worst dressed when to Rosamund Pike of Gone Girl in a droopy, unflattering, white Vera Wang frock that proved her stylist hates her. For the Screen Actors Guild Awards a couple of weeks ago I was camped out as usual in front of the TV at 6 p.m. with a bottle of pinot grigio, some gluten-free rice crackers and some gluten-heavy cheese to watch the red carpet arrivals on E.Please understand that I watch awards shows because I love sparkle and taffeta and beautifully outrageous jewelry, but I know I could certainly never afford Claire Danes stunning Marc Jacobs halter gown or Viola Davis elegant Max Mara dress. And even if I could afford one and somehow miraculously fit into one, where am I going to wear it around these parts? Sure, there are a couple of fancy-schmancy to-dos where a gown with a train might not look crazy, but after I wear my red carpet dress to those, Ill be traipsing around Publix in it. So, it remains nothing but fantasy and fluff. That is, until lovely Emma Stone glided down the red carpet and gave me a sliver of hope. It wasnt her sheer Dior Couture tuxedo dress (I could maybe twist up that little size 00 number and wear it as turban), though. It was her bright red lipstick. It was hot.Imagine my glee when Google told me that, what with Emma being one of the faces of Revlon, I a normal lady in Florida could purchase the very lipstick Emma wore on the red carpet in Hollywood at my local Walgreens for $7.99.For less than the price of a margarita, I could look like Emma Stone. The line is Ultra HD Lipstick and the color is Gladiolus, and according to an article on Glamour magazines website, Gladiolus was the ONLY product used on Emmas lips. I rushed out and bought the lipstick the next day, and I dont usually do this, but I tore into that package the second I got into my car and applied my Emma lipstick using my rearview mirror. Well, it was red. And it felt creamy, not matte or glossy, just like Emmas makeup artist promised in the article. But, did I look like Emma Stone? My husband and I had a date night that evening to go to the movies, so I wore Emmas lipstick. We were on our way to the theater and he still had said nothing about my glamorous Gladiolus lips. So, I asked him, Do you like my lipstick, honey? Uh, sure! Its very red. When we got out of the movies, after a tub of popcorn and a large Diet Coke, there was nary a speck of Emmas lipstick left on my lips. Ive worn it a few times since, and it never looks as vivid as Emmas and Ill bet Emmas stays on a lot longer. And Im not saying the Internet lies, BUT I think Emma likely had lip liner and a base coat and an expensive lipstick and then her make-up person quickly dabbed a teeny bit of Gladiolus on the corner of her mouth in order to fulfill her Revlon contract. Or NOT. Maybe its just that Emma is 26, gorgeous and did not apply her red carpet makeup herself in a Walgreens parking lot. None of this disheartens my red carpet fantasies, though. The Oscars are coming up Sunday, Feb. 22, and Ill be right there, drinking wine, eating cheese and probably wearing my Gladiolus. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS email@example.com Actress Emma Stone in a promotional image for Revlons Ultra HD Lipstick.

Time was, when they arrived at your table to consult, educate or perhaps to recommend a wine pairing or two, they stood somewhere in the 6-foot range, they were dressed formally, and they combined the talents of an urbane carnival barker, a viticulturist, a stage actor and a Rolls Royce salesman. You might or might not have been glad to see one. Now, the host might simply put one in your hand and in the hands of every member of your party when you arrive, in the case of an innovative new thing called Menuvative. An electronic menu and sommelier, it was designed by Eric Arsenault, president of the Michiganbased company Imenutech and a regular visitor to Naples and Fort Myers. Now, such restaurants as the Real Seafood Company and Swan River Seafood in Naples, and the Blue Pointe Oyster Bar & Seafood Grill in Fort Myers all are using Menuvative, which not only serves as a sommelier, but also offers customers realistic photographs and detailed information about what theyre going to eat. There are other new technologies in changing the face of business for restaurateurs and customers as well.Dining goes digitalCOURTESY PHOTOMenuvative software used at Real Seafood Naples and Blue Pointe Oyster Bar & Seafood Grill in Fort Myers.BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.com Locally-designed technologies helping perfect the eating experienceSEE DINING, B4 One advantage is, it allows the kitchen staff to peruse through and see whats coming their way.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 5-11, 2015 Give the gift of financial clarityEven simple gifts can create great confusion. Gifts to those we love can express our affections, fulfill responsibilities and further our altruistic passions. But even the most simple of gifts, including money, can create very complicated relationships. The fact is that the gift is often perceived to be a complete communication, but a gift without surrounding words by giver and recipient is often insufficient communication Words are scantly used at time of giving and acceptance of a gift... especially a financial gift. There is a great challenge to create and voice those words and confusion is sometimes an easier route. Gift-giving is a behavior that is studied by academicians, helping to take some of the guesswork out of the process. It might be best to give people what theyve been asking for. According to one study, Recipients appreciated receiving items from their wish list more than unsolicited items, and perceived the requested items to be more thoughtful and considerate. But in direct contrast, the givers thought that recipients would be more impressed with unsolicited items. This apparent disconnect between gift-givers and giftrecipients may strike a chord with many of us. (Sept. 15, 2011, Stanford Business, Give them the gift they are expecting.) Another study found that recipients of gifts preferred practicality; recipients did not favor the givers creativity. (March 12, 2014, Yale News, Research in the News: Practicality trumps desirability in gift giving.) These studies largely focused on gifts of physical objects, services, gift cards, etc. Money as a gift is generally appreciated by all; it is generally on every recipients wish list and recipients do not reject largesse by the giver. Even as easily as a simple non-financial gift can go awry, so, too, can the simple gift of money. Clearly, there are many different perspectives, attitudes, intentions, needs, frames of heart and mind, etc. A financial gift can be graciously received, can be unwelcome or taken for granted. It can reflect genuine sentiment of love or affection by the giver or it can reflect an attempt by the giver to control the recipient. The recipient might strategize or manipulate to cause the gift to be made. The gift can be too small relative to the event behind the gift; it can be too large a gift relative to the event. The decision to give can be made on the spur of the moment or carefully weighed, designed and timed... and appear calculated. The gift can be used as the donor planned or intended or it can be used to the recipients detriment. There is certainly room for confusion and unintended consequences unless there is communication that parallels the gift. Its a good idea at the time of giving to provide clarity about the gift, both by the giver and by the recipient of the gift. The clarity that is needed can only come from written or spoken words. Here are some examples of how simple gifts can require additional communication. A gift of money to young children might be accompanied by words about how the gift is intended for use: for saving, for spending, for college, for a student trip, etc. It might require the recipient child to report or prove use of the funds as agreed. A gift of money to an adult child, if small, might require no reporting of usage or there might be a request about how it was used as the parent is testing the child to see if he/she is a good steward. If the gift is large, then there is generally a much longer conversation about how it is to be held, used, protected, etc. If a man gives a woman money and it is a small amount and she expected a large gift, well, that might be the end of that relationship. If the gift is large and it is early in a relationship, it might scare the woman away. And the issues of gifting outside immediate family become more complicated far beyond the issue of big or small in that different cultures (meaning a countrys culture as well as U.S. regional cultures) interpret gifts differently. Clarity can come in the form of words by the giver describing: the intent of the gift, the factors considered, the process for figuring out what the gift should be, the frequency of future gifts, etc. For example, you might specify if the gift is a one-time thing or a periodic gift to be expected again in the future. It can also be helpful to explain the purpose of the gift, any accountability associated with the gift, etc. Not all occasions (and their gifting) need long speeches. Valentines Day is around the corner, and flowers, chocolates, a card and sweet embrace can speak volumes. Jeannette Showalter, CFA is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems.

The event takes place Wednesday, March 11, at the Estuary at Grey Oaks.It makes sense for Goodwill and SCORE to partner for this event, says Goodwill spokesperson Madison Mitchell. Two organizations that are helping the community by assisting small business owners become independent and successful its a great combination. Goodwill MicroEnterprise provides aspiring entrepreneurs with low to moderate income levels and other disadvantages to start or stabilize their own businesses. The program helps them develop the skills they need to succeed as small business owners and become independent. Through an intensive six-week course, small business mentors assist participants in creating a business plan. After the completion of the course, participants are invited to apply for a micro-loan from Goodwill and its lending partners. SCORE Naples is a nonprofit association dedicated to educating entrepreneurs and helping small businesses by providing free consulting services on a broad variety of subjects. In 2013, SCORE Naples was able to help create 320 small businesses in Collier County and assist 258 existing businesses grow their revenue and create an economic impact of more than $50 million. The SCORE Naples partnership with Goodwill MicroEnterprise provides an opportunity to invest the money we raise from this event to support our joint mission of helping entrepreneurs, says Vin Izzi, SCORE Naples board member. This benefits the local economy. Small business is the engine for business formation, job creation and wealth creation. A microenterprise is any type of small business that has fewer than five employees and requires $35,000 or less to start-up, generally much less. According to Goodwill, microenterprises represent 87 percent of all businesses in the United States. With more than 24 million microenterprises in the country, one out of every six private-sector employees in the U.S. works for a microenterprise. Tickets to the evening at Grey Oaks are $50. To make a reservation, call Ms. Mitchell at 995-2106, ext. 2213, or to go goodwillswfl.org/scoregoodwillswfl.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 5-11, 2015 Home for sale by owner in RiverstoneCall 586-453-6240 for price and appointment Last week, for example, staffers in the Parrot Key Caribbean Grill at Salty Sams on Fort Myers Beach began using a new iPad technology called NCR-Aloha, made by Advanced Hospitality Systems. Aloha is a point of sale software that can do the following for restaurant owners, the company says: increase service speed, generate loyalty, increase sales and enhance controls. Your server can use it tableside as you make your choices, which will be posted straight to the kitchen wham, bam, thank you maam. One advantage is, it allows the kitchen staff to peruse through and see whats coming their way, explains Matt Hanson, co-owner of the Parrot Key Caribbean Grill and Bootleggers Waterfront Barbecue, both at Salty Sams Marina on Fort Myers Beach. Also, there is no losing tickets anymore. Instead of a server taking an order and going back to a terminal, where they could stand in line, now they can stand in front of the customer and place the order. If a server forgets to ask what temperature you want your steak, or if theres an option like mushrooms, Aloha reminds them. The new technology and others like it are not designed to reduce staff, but instead make them significantly more agile and responsive, both to customers and to their kitchens, restaurateurs say. Were trying to distance ourselves from a couple of things a tablet mounted to the table thats there either for entertainment value or to replace the server. Those are technologies that dont make anything better. Instead, theyre adding novelty or changing the dining experience, Mr. Arsenault says. Menuvative provides great freedom to customers, he adds even customers who may be slightly averse to electronic tablets or technological interventions, not to mention inventions. My philosophy with restaurant technologies is, it should be no more than two layers deep, he explains. So its a classic menu, and no more complicated than flipping through pages. If you want to know more, you tap for a picture, then flip back out. An engineer by training and a former sommelier himself, Mr. Arsenault created Menuvative not to take away the job of a sommelier or any other restaurant employees the one thing it wont do is reduce the need for staff, he says but to provide a cloud-to-tablet menu medium, complete with page-turning, eye-popping descriptions of food and wine that get right down to ingredients, caloric content and other health information. That will give each guest a lot more flexibility and freedom in ordering, and provide restaurant managers and staffers with faster, more efficient tools to please guests, he says. It seems to work as advertised at Real Seafood Naples, which, with the Blue Pointe Oyster Bar & Seafood Grill in Fort Myers, is part of an 18-restaurant, five-state company called Mainstreet Ventures. For me, the amount of information we offer is one of the keys to this, says Olivier Morame, general manager of Real Seafood Naples. Being able to offer a description to customers, with a photograph and more information, as well as helping and guiding them with the wine thats valuable. And the menus always changing, especially with fresh fish. Every time theres a change in what we have, or in the price we have to pay, we can instantly update it on the menu. And the technology doesnt seem to bother anybody, including older diners who werent born and bred in the newtech cradle. Some nights weve had 300 or 400 people eating here and not one complaint about the menus, Mr. Morame says. What the technologies might do is put some printers out of business. But it could save thousands of dollars per year for restaurants that keep changing their menus as ingredients or chef whimsies change, and have to reprint new menus on paper, in the old style. But old style, of course, is still what some restaurants are seeking restaurants such as The Celtic Ray in Punta Gorda, a classic Irish-style pub from the Guinness and Harp to the music and right down to the fish and chips or shepherds pie. Sure, we have some high-tech here, says Matt Schaefer, the chef: We have Wi-fi. Thats for music, for the customers mostly. But no televisions. You have to order from the bar, here. I find all that technology kind of dry and sterile and ineffectual, although Ive been to some fast-food restaurants where it works, I guess. But not having all that is part of the reason I first came here, and hung out here (before he became the chef more than a decade ago). The first time I ever showed up, I was sitting between a drywaller and a judge. Not between a screen and a tablet.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Orders GaloreHere are the main orders you can place with your brokerage to buy or sell stocks. Some can be combined. Market order: This is for immediate execution at the best price available when the order reaches the marketplace. Its the most common type of order and is nearly always filled, since no price is specified. It can be risky if the stock unexpectedly moves sharply which isnt common. Limit order: This is an order to buy or sell only at a specified price (the limit) or better. Its used by investors with a maximum or minimum price at which theyre willing to trade. It can be handy if you like a company but think its stock is a little too rich, as you can place a limit order to buy it if it falls to a lower price. Fill-or-Kill: If this order cannot be filled immediately, its automatically canceled. Day Order: If this order hasnt been filled by the end of the trading day, it terminates automatically. GTC (Good Till Canceled): This order remains in effect until executed by the broker or canceled by you. Many brokerages cancel GTC orders after a month or two, though. Stop Order: This becomes a market order when a specified price is reached or passed. Buy stops are entered above the current market price; sell stops are entered below it. For example, you might place a stop order to have your shares of a stock automatically sold if it falls below $25 per share. A stop order guarantees execution but not price. Stop Limit Order: This becomes a limit order when a specified price is reached or passed. If you place a sell 100 XYZ $55 stop limit order, if XYZ drops to $55 per share or below, the order becomes a limit order to sell 100 shares at no less than $55. This order doesnt guarantee execution. Learn more about brokerages at broker.fool.com. Excellent Condition, As IsI learned a lesson in pride long ago. Trailers do fall in value! I took out a loan to purchase a trailer. The seller stated that it was for sale as is, and was in excellent condition. After signing a purchase contract, the trailer was rendered not livable after a pipe burst, filling the home with wastewater. I lost well over $13,000, due in part to the park operator not getting a plumber in on time. Dont be fooled by the promise of a quick sale. Always get your own inspector. As is and excellent condition mean very different things. I learned my lessons the hard way. A reader in MilwaukeeThe Fool Responds: This is a great lesson for anyone buying anything of value, whether its a trailer home, a house, a car or a stock. (Remember that some coldcalling brokers will try to talk you into rushing into dumb stock investments.) Do your due diligence, or have an inspector or other professional do it for you. Money spent on an inspection can be well worth it, saving you from pain and losses. AbbVie for Your HealthAmong well-managed and profitable large-cap biotech companies, AbbVie (NYSE: ABBV) is growing faster than many, posting a strong 7.8 percent increase in revenue year over year in its third quarter. Most important, this growth story is only now starting to kick into high gear.With the recent approval of its hepatitis C therapy Viekira Pak for genotype 1 patients and a multiyear agreement with Express Scripts granting the drug a favorable reimbursement status on its formulary, AbbVie is set to add billions in revenue to its top line next year. This deal also shows managements prowess at capturing market share for new drugs, a feat it perfected with its flagship anti-inflammatory drug Humira. It has delivered several consecutive quarters of double-digit sales growth, making it the worlds best-selling drug in 2013. AbbVie has three other products generating double-digit sales growth in the third quarter, namely Creon (for pancreatic enzyme therapy), Duodopa (for advanced Parkinsons disease) and Synagis (a seasonal respiratory vaccine). AbbVie has a robust clinical pipeline, featuring 12 late-stage clinical candidates, with a handful now under regulatory approval. With a dividend recently yielding 3.1 percent, AbbVie is worth a look. (The Motley Fool owns and recommends shares of Express Scripts.) I was founded in 1833 to sell drugs and chemicals wholesale. I stocked many trade ships medicine chests and distributed wares by covered wagon. Today, based in San Francisco, Im Americas oldest and largest health care services company, serving more than 50 percent of American hospitals, 20 percent of physicians and 100 percent of health plans. Im also the largest pharmaceutical distributor in North America, delivering a third of all medications used there every day. I employ more than 37,000 people and rake in more than $160 billion annually. My specialties include hospital automation and medical-management software. Who am I? (Answer: McKesson) A Bankrupt InvestmentQDo I lose my whole investment if a company I own stock in goes bankrupt? C.S., Fulton, MissouriAYoull likely lose a lot, but perhaps not everything. Some companies file for bankruptcy protection and then turn themselves around, as General Motors and Delta Air Lines did. (Others, such as Enron, dont.) Even a business that fails can still be worth something. Its assets may be sold off, or another company might just buy it entirely. When these sales occur, as a common-stock shareholder, you are in line to receive some of the proceeds. Unfortunately, though, youre last in line. Creditors (banks, bondholders, suppliers, etc.) are paid first, followed by preferred-stock holders, and, finally, if anything is left, holders of common stock. (They often receive nothing.) Its best to keep up with your holdings and their progress, so that youre not surprised when theres trouble. At a minimum, read quarterly or annual reports. ***QWhere can I look up home values in my neighborhood to get an idea of my homes worth? L.M., Waldo, FloridaAFor an informed opinion, ask a good real estate agent. You can also find information online, at sites such as Zillow.com, where youll be able to look up estimated values of homes in various neighborhoods, prices of recently sold homes and much more. Be careful, though, if you need a home value estimate in order to price your home or bid on a house. Online data providers can be helpful, but their data isnt always accurate. If youre buying or selling a home, its often smart to use an experienced agent who might help you land a better price. Learn more at USA.gov and realtor.com. Got a question for the Fool?

Consumer Reports surveys agents on how to increase a homes valueWith housing prices at recent highs, its a great time to sell, and still-low interest rates make it also a good time to buy a home. Findings from a recent survey of more than 300 licensed residential real estate agents by the Consumer Reports National Research Center point to certain factors, such as smart pre-sale fix-ups and negotiable agent fees, that can financially benefit both sellers and buyers. Fifty-three percent of real estate pros surveyed by Consumer Reports said the kitchen is among the most important rooms of the home to have in good shape before selling; 42 percent also said the same about bathrooms. You dont have to spend a ton of money to increase the value of your home, says Dan DiClerico, senior editor for Consumer Reports. Some simple, inexpensive fixes throughout the house can make it more appealing to potential buyers. Here are some other survey highlights: The best time to sell a home is during the second quarter of the year (April through June), with April being the best month. The main reasons people are selling today are because of job relocation and downsizing. Sixty-four percent of the agents surveyed said all or most of their buyers did their own housing-market research online.REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 5-11, 2015 B10 1016 Seventh St. S.

In Consumer Reports survey, 63 percent of the agents admitted to negotiating their fees at least half of the time. And despite the widely held belief that 6 percent is the standard brokers commission, almost half of the agents surveyed typically charge 4 percent or less. Overpricing a home This is the most costly mistake, cited by 43 percent of the agents surveyed. A home priced too high will just sit on the market. Expect buyers to know what the market is like; a good agent will show sellers the sale price for at least five similar homes nearby that sold in the past two months. The full report, How to Make Your Home More Valuable, can be found at ConsumerReports.org and in the March 2015 issue of Consumer Reports magazine. REAL ESTATEFrom page 10

The luxury villa is being built with a study and third bedroom and is the follow-up version to a previous Eloro that sold in 2014 for more than $1.6 million. A British Colonial-inspired design will feature bright whites and linen tones in glazed porcelain tile flooring, kitchen cabinets, granite countertops and painted tongue-and-groove and beamed ceiling treatments; the neutral colors will provide the backdrop for a palette of paprika, citrine and smoke. On target for completion in March, the new Eloro is on a cul-de-sac overlooking a lake. The floor plan has a great room with dining and seating areas, a study, three full baths and a powder room. Al fresco living is made possible by a wall of 18-foot pocketing sliding doors that open the great room to covered outdoor living and dining areas, a summer kitchen and a custom pool and spa. The design of the Eloro places the master suite in a private wing overlooking the pool and lake. The study will be shown as a work and sitting area. All London Bay Homes are built using the latest information, products and technology available in building science, including the BEP Blue Barrier moisture barrier system that protects against mold issues and structural damage from moisture intrusion. Mediterras community amenities include themed neighborhood parks; eight miles of walking and jogging trails; a fitness complex with tennis and bocce courts, a pool and spa services. A recent renovation at the 32,000-square-foot clubhouse updated the interior design of the main dining room, expanded the lounge and kitchen and introduced al fresco dining options, an exposition kitchen and chefs table. On the links, Mediterra is in the first year of a twoyear, $6.1 million project to replace the irrigation system, bunkers, cart paths and turf on its South Course. Membership opportunities at Mediterra are limited to 225 members per 18 holes. All of the communitys amenities are member-owned.

It doesnt take a rocket scientist to realize that, so its not really surprising that Mr. Nevilles latest album, My True Story, is a covers-packed homage to the vocal-based music of the New Orleans natives youth. Mr. Neville performs Friday, Feb. 13, at ArtisNaples. Its the music that formed my singing back in the days, he says about My True Story. It was like medicine to me. I didnt care what else was going on in the world. As long as I could sing along with Pookie Hudson, Clyde McPhatter, Sonny Til of the Orioles or the Flamingos and those guys, everything was all right. The music was innocent, and it brings me back to those days and I feel like a kid. Two of his primary co-conspirators on the album were guitarist Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones and Don Was, president of Blue Note Records, both of whom have a long history with Mr. Neville. Mr. Was produced Mr. Nevilles cover of Crazy Love that was in the movie Phenomenon and also produced I Fall to Pieces that won a Grammy for Mr. Neville and Trisha Yearwood. And Mr. Neville and Mr. Richards have been friends ever since the Neville Brothers opened for the Rolling Stones back in 1981. Matter of fact, my doing the song My True Story came about because Don was producing Voodoo Lounge with the Stones somewhere overseas and Keith had this album on a loop over and over and over, and it was My True Story by the Jive Five. Many of the dozen songs that make up the My True Story album were part of the soundtrack of Mr. Nevilles growing up in the Calliope projects. Hes tag along with older brother, Art, whose love of doo-wop influenced the forming of his early group, the Hawkettes.

RESERVE YOUR SPOT: 239-313-2553 RiverchaseDermatology.com FACE SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS When a man buys you Chanel No. 5 When I think of Chanel No. 5, I think of my mother. Not because she wore the fragrance in fact, she never spritzed it on. My mother preferred hipper perfumes, looser and more overtly sexy scents, such as Georgio and Ralph Lauren, fragrances that never struck me as stiff or fusty like the Chanel. But she outfitted her bathroom with bottles of No. 5, most of them unopened. They stood sentry by her bathtub and lined her sink. Finally, as a teenager, I asked, Why do you have so many bottles if you never wear it? My mother laughed. Because your father was always giving it to me. Dad didnt know you hated it? I never had the heart to tell him. I remember this conversation clearly because I was struck that my mother, who has a penchant for telling it like it is, would keep this information from my father. Isnt the key to a successful relationship open communication? In my own romances, I decided, I would always speak the truth. Then last year a man gave me a bottle of Chanel No. 5. I opened the gift bag and blushed when I saw the perfume sitting there. Before I knew what I was doing, I said, I love it. Really? he asked. Youre sure? Absolutely, I said. Its my favorite. But its not my favorite. Not even close. I wondered: Doesnt he know anything about me? Hasnt he noticed that I prefer floral scents, that Chanel No. 5 is way too buttonedup for my tastes? Never mind that hed never gotten close enough to kiss my wrist or press his nose to my neck. I angrily assumed he just hadnt been paying attention. And to tell you the truth, I was angry at myself. How could I sit there with my mouth closed, not saying a thing? Why had I been silent about this gift that was all wrong? So I put away the Chanel No. 5. Sometimes Id give it a sniff, but I could never bring myself to wear its heavy lemon and bergamot scents. Instead, the bottle sat on my bathroom counter, my own sentry, looking elegant and sophisticated but wholly unlike me. Still, I never told the man who gave it to me. For all my big talk about telling the truth in relationships, Id ended up taking my mothers approach. Then recently I saw the man again. He gave me another gift bag with another bottle of Chanel. But this was Coco Mademoiselle, a younger, floral version, with notes of rose and jasmine. It was the sort of perfume Id wear, similar to other fragrances I prefer. This man, it turns out, had been paying attention. For all my posturing about truthtelling in relationships, I wonder if on occasion it isnt better to keep our mouths shut. So often, successful romances depend on diplomacy knowing when to speak up and when to accept a gift graciously. I suppose thats the lesson my mother tried to teach me all those years ago: When we love someone, sometimes we just have to smile and say thank you.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 5-11, 2015 individuals, theyve greatly increased over the last three years, says Scott Diament, president and CEO of Palm Beach Show Group, which promotes shows in Naples and Palm Beach. That gives us a good customer base, he adds. The Naples shows takes place Feb. 6-9 (invitation-only preview party Feb. 5); the Palm Beach show follows Feb. 14-16. Mr. Diament, whose shows offer antiques, art and jewelry priced into the millions, says collectors fill his shows. But there also are the aggregators, as he calls them designers and art advisers. They advise on the purchase, they get a commission on that, he says. Where jewelry is entailed, however, its the end consumer the potential wearer who comes to the shows, he says. And there has been a change in that market: Men of means are buying watches. I have clients who have 200 watches, he says. That market has changed remarkably. Its collectors, its shoppers and its dealers. Its everybody, says Bill Puchstein, co-owner of Puchstein Promotions, which runs the monthly West Palm Beach Antiques Festival. He says hes seen a shift in West Palm Beach: Were seeing that the audience is getting younger new collectors and new buyers. Jewelry has become more of a mainstay at his shows, too, Mr. Puchstein says. I know weve got a lot jewelry dealers at our show, and they must be selling because they keep coming back, he says. Jewelry aside, other areas of the market have changed, at least in Florida. Traditional antiques wood furniture, glassware and other accessories do not fetch the prices they once did, according to Mr. Diament. Shoppers can expect a little of everything high-end at his Naples and Palm Beach shows. Well have Roman glass thats a couple thousand years old, rare books, pottery, porcelain, antique arms and armor he says. There really are all price points. There are items at these shows for $200, $300 but its really across the board. It may go up to $8 million. There will be about 55 exhibitors at the Naples show, which is held in a tent constructed for the occasion; there will be 175 at the Palm Beach show, held in a convention center. Most of those 55 come to Palm Beach as well, Mr. Diament says. It allows Southwest Florida residents to have an easy opportunity to purchase, or a have a preview of Palm Beach. The West Palm Beach show, which draws about 1,000 dealers and around 10,000 clients, has a lower price point. But you never know what youll find there, Mr. Puchstein says. Its heading more toward vintage and midcentury and decorative items, and I think for the last couple of years, antique guns have been among the hottest items at the shows.

Brother Art even popped in to add some inspired Hammond B-3 playing to a reading of Hank Ballards Work With Me Annie.) When asked whether recording with his sibling took him full circle back a few decades, the younger Neville is quick to reminisce. Arthur had a doo-wop group and theyd go out on a park bench and sing, he says. They used to run it their way until they figured I could hit the notes Then Art worked at a record shop and hed bring all these things home. The Clovers was one of his favorite groups, so it got to be one of mine, too. The early love of doo-wop helped ignite a life-long passion for music for both Aaron and Art Neville, as well as their brothers Charles and Cyril. The four banded together in the 1970s to form their long-standing group, the Neville Brothers. With the 1991 album Warm Your Heart, Aaron launched what has become a successful solo career alongside the group. Now My True Story brings him back to some of his earliest musical roots. And while nostalgia certainly plays a factor in Mr. Nevilles love of this genre, its also helped him get through some rough times from serving a six-month sentence for stealing a car when he was 18, to battling drug addiction in the early 1970s and coping with the 2007 death of Joel Roux Neville, his wife of 40 years. Doo-wop has been medicine for me, he says. Its been very healing.

Find a Location & View Our Menu at www.ribcity.com The Very BestKeith Lockhart celebrates 20 years with The Boston Pops NANCY STETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.comJust call it a 20-20 year: Keith Lockhart is the 20th conductor in a long line of illustrious conductors of The Boston Pops. And, this year, hes celebrating his 20th year leading the orchestra. A lot has changed over the two decades. When I came to take the job in February 5, I didnt have a cell phone or an email address, he says. Now the world has changed into one in which entertainment is experienced individually, on-demand and via the Web. One of the challenges of performing arts organizations everywhere is to reach and teach people that an irreplaceable part of experiencing the arts is the act of gathering together in community and (hearing it) created live, Mr. Lockhart says. Thats what we have to sell. Known as Americas Orchestra, The Boston Pops has performed on 75 TV shows under Mr. Lockharts direction and is known for its Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular broadcast nationally every Fourth of July. Southwest Floridians watched the maestro perform locally as a guest conductor for the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra throughout the 1990s. He conducts The Boston Pops at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall in Sarasota on Friday, Feb. 6; at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach on Sunday, Feb. 8; and at the Broward Center Au Rene in Fort Lauderdale on Monday, Feb. 9. Mr. Lockhart and company work hard to keep making their concerts a special experience. There are 3,400 titles in the orchestras library from which to draw. And pieces he has conducted more than 150 times with the orchestra is music with such quality to it that theres always more to find in it, he says. They still play Stars and Stripes Forever because the audience loves it, but hes constantly asking himself what other music they can perform, what we can bring under the umbrella. They want to stay contemporary, to do the updated version of what (former Boston Pops conductor) Arthur Fiedler did, with Nelson Riddle and Frank Sinatra music. For this generation, that means renditions of Led Zeppelins Stairway to Heaven and Queens Bohemian Rhapsody. These are nostalgia pieces, he says. Some of them are 40 years old. Those are the pieces that go to that nostalgiatouch place for our core audience who are in the 50-, 60-age group. Im one of them, he adds. Now 55, he grew up listening to rock and pop. He names Led Zepplin and Aerosmith as favorites. Among the musicians and singers whove performed with the Pops in the past decades: Celine Dion, Steven Tyler and Aerosmith, Yo Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman, Audra McDonald, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Steve Martin, Martin Short, Nathan Lane, Jason Alexander, Chris Botti, Josh Groban.The list is so long its easier to name the people he hasnt worked with, he says.Three big names on his wish list of performers hed love to work with: Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen and Paul Simon. Mr. Lockhart has traveled all over the world, conducting The Boston Pops and guest conducting other orchestras. (Hes also principal conductor of the BBC Concert Orchestra in London.) In the UK, he says, audiences dont stand up as often, whereas the standing ovation in the United States has become a clich: if you like it vaguely, you stand up at the end of the concert. You rarely see one in the UK. And within the United States, he sees a big difference in audiences on the East and West coasts. Some leave two pieces early to get to their cars, and some stay in their place and dont let you leave, he says. And I wont say which is which. Mr. Lockhart, whose boyish good looks make him appear perpetually young, is an energetic conductor with a special rapport with audiences. Ive been blessed with an ability to connect with audiences and talk with them My grandmother says I have the gift of gab. Its easy to invite the audience to the party (to say) this is why I think you should fall in love with this piece.The Florida tour, his 40th national tour with the orchestra, is called The Very Best of the Boston Pops. It starts with the overture to Leonard Bernsteins Candide, followed by Buckaroo Holiday from Aaron Coplands cowboy ballet Rodeo. Then: an excerpt from Dvoraks New World Symphony and an arrangement of Duke Ellingtons It Dont Mean a Thing. The first half concludes with Louis Gottschalks Grande Tarantelle, featuring pianist Michael Chertock.The second half opens with Queens Bohemian Rhapsody and ABBAs Dancing Queen, and includes selections from Boston Pops Laureate Conductor John Williams film scores to Harry Potter and E.T. The ExtraTerrestrial. The orchestra also performs Dave Brubecks Blue Rondo a la Turk before concluding with a Beatles singalong. Its the very best, he says, not just the sort of best.

Things should be easier when it comes to matters in your private life. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) What might appear to be a very much unwanted change in your life right now could turn out to be a very welcome event after all. Give yourself a chance to see where it might take you. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) All that flattery and fawning shouldnt affect any decision you have to make. Keep your focus on the facts and ignore all the hyperbole, especially if it gets uncomfortably personal. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your Bovine instincts are on the mark about that favor youre being asked to do. Agree to nothing unless you get a full explanation -which you would check out first, of course. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A somewhat unsettled recent period should give way to a smoother time going through the week. Use this quieter time to catch up on matters you might have had to let slide. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Feeling a little confused is understandable with all those mixed messages. Take time to list the questions you have. Then present them and insist on answers that make sense. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Cupid can be very helpful for Lions seeking a love connection. The chubby cherub also brings warm and fuzzy feelings to paired Leos and Leonas who already share a special love line. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Travel is favored this week, whether youll be globe-trotting or taking a trip to a nearby getaway. You might be surprised (or maybe not) by who wants to be your traveling companion. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Getting advice on your next businessrelated move is a good idea, but only if your advisers are trustworthy. Get references that you can check out before you make any decisions. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Getting a boost in your self-esteem is one benefit that comes with a job well done. There are other plusses as well, including being noticed by all the right people. Good luck. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Make time to deal with family matters, especially where they concern your elderly kinfolk. Being there for them from the start can help resolve problems sooner rather than later. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Getting a project started can often be difficult. But the good news is that you wont want for lack of assistance from colleagues who would like to work with you. So, let them!

CONTRACT BRIDGEListen and learnBY STEVE BECKERMany players regard the bidding and the play as separate and distinct departments of the game, but this is an approach that should be rectified as quickly as possible. There are many cases where if a player listens closely to the bidding, he can find the winning action that can turn a potential loss into a sizable gain. Consider this deal from Morehead on Bidding, one of the games early classics. It is an extraordinary illustration of how a defender (West), by keeping his ears tuned to the bidding, was able to foresee how the play would go once the auction was concluded. Wests double of four spades, on the face of it, looks rather optimistic, but actually it is very wellreasoned. West can deduce that North-South between them have seven or eight diamonds, judging from Norths two-diamond response and Souths raise to three. It is therefore reasonable to assume that East has a singleton or void in diamonds. West then backs his judgment by doubling four spades and leading a diamond. The ensuing debacle is greater than West has a right to expect, but it is not really that surprising. East ruffs the diamond and returns the queen of hearts, West capturing Souths king with the ace and leading another diamond. East ruffs, cashes the jack of hearts and shifts to a club. Regardless of what declarer does, he must still lose a spade, a club and another diamond ruff to finish down four, and West thanks to keeping his ears open is 1,100 points to the better.

Everything about it is preposterous, and its yet another new low for Ms. Lopezs acting career. Rated R. Blackhat (Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis, Wei Tang) A cyber attack on a Chinese power plant prompts the U.S. and Chinese governments to work together to solve the crime with the help of a federal prisoner (Mr. Hemsworth). It shouldve been full of intrigue and suspense, but its really just a bore. Rated R.American Sniper (Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Kyle Gallner) Chris Kyle (Mr. Cooper), the most lethal sniper in American military history, serves four tours of duty as a Navy SEAL but is a distant husband and father. Mr. Coopers performance is fine, but director Clint Eastwood (Gran Torino) never finds a natural flow to the story, so no tension builds and it feels episodic. Rated R.Selma (David Oyelowo, Carmen Ejogo, Tom Wilkinson) In 1965 Alabama, Dr. Martin Luther King (Mr. Oyelowo) f ights with local leaders, police, and President Lyndon Johnson (Mr. Wilkinson) to secure voting rights for minorities. The story is tedious at times, but Mr. Oyelowos performance is stellar. Rated PG-13.Unbroken (Jack OConnell, Domhnall Gleeson, Miyavi) After crashing in the Pacific during WWII, Louis Zamperini (Mr. OConnell) survives for 47 days on a lifeboat before being taken to a Japanese POW camp. Its an inspiring story about the power of sheer will and determination, flawlessly directed by Angelina Jolie. Rated PG-13.Inherent Vice 1/2(Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson) In 1970s L.A., a detective (Mr. Phoenix) investigates the disappearance of an exgirlfriend he believes was in the middle of a nefarious extortion scheme. Tangents build on tangents, to the point that it moves every direction but forward. Its neither funny nor dramatic, just a total misfire. Rated R.The Gambler (Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Lange, John Goodman) A literature professor (Mr. Wahlberg) gets into serious gambling debt and doesnt seem to care if he can find a way out. Mr. Wahlberg gives an unexpectedly layered performance in this taut drama that has a few surprises up its sleeve. Rated R. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage) With dragon Smaug (voice of Benedict Cumberbatch) out of the way, Bilbo (Mr. Freeman), Thorin (Mr. Armitage) and the men of Lake Town protect the Lonely Mountain from Orcs and Goblins. Theres enough spectacle throughout to keep it entertaining. Rated PG-13.

YesSad, beautiful and determined to not leave a dry eye in the house, Still Alice is a devastating film you will not soon forget. Watching it requires an open heart and a handful of Kleenex, plus bracing yourself to see an otherwise healthy woman undergo a horrible ordeal. When we first meet Alice (Julianne Moore) its her 50th birthday, and shes happy. She teaches linguistics at Columbia University in New York City, where her husband John (Alec Baldwin) is also employed. Their three kids are grown and on their own: Anna (Kate Bosworth) and husband Charlie (Shane McRae) are ready for a baby, Tom (Hunter Parrish) is in medical school and Lydia (Kristen Stewart) is an aspiring actress in Los Angeles. Alice could not have dreamed of a better life. But shes getting forgetful. Words elude her, she loses her place during speeches and she even gets lost during a run around campus. The diagnosis: early-onset Alzheimers. The reaction: complete shock and terror, as its rare for someone her age to be afflicted with this debilitating disease. Alice deteriorates fast, and its painful to watch. Ms. Moore, who is absolutely phenomenal, goes from energetic and vibrant to flustered and defeated. Its a heartbreaking transition, progressing gradually for us but all too fast for Alice and her family. Her fear is legitimate; her pain more emotional than physical is unimaginable. When Alice wakes in the middle of the night to tell John whats happening for the first time, she breaks down and sobs in his arms. I nearly sobbed, too. Other elements are more subtle. (Note Ms. Moores hair and clothes throughout the film; both go from bold and full of life to haggard and frumpy, ransacked by the inability to think clearly and with purpose.) Co-writers and directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland give ample time to the effect Alices condition has on her family, which is substantial. John is loving and supportive, but even the best of souls needs a break from the constant care and worry. Anna fights to maintain her mothers dignity, Tom is encouraging even though he feels helpless and Lydia who has a strained relationship with her mother struggles to be a good daughter while not losing track of her own dreams. Ms. Stewart has taken plenty of heat in the press (much of it deserved), but shes strong here, making Lydia a compassionate soul in search of herself at a time when her mother is losing herself. Its a balanced dichotomy that works because of the performances and smart structure of the story. Their chats, fights and angst all feel real, to the point that Ms. Moore will owe a big thank you to Ms. Stewart for any award Ms. Moore receives. Still Alice is not for the weak or bashful. If youve had a family member endure Alzheimers it might bring back painful memories. This is a movie that punches you in the gut with inevitabilities and the unfairness of life, most likely leaving you with a tear in your eye and the hope that it doesnt happen to me. >> Julianne Moore played a love interest to Alec Baldwins Jack Donaghy in TVs Rock. t f M o dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com naplesfujiyama.com 239.261.4332 Located at:2555 Tamiami Trail North, Naples, FL 34103 MANAGER JUNJI HIJIKATA Reservations available now, plan ahead please.

Then, the wheels really started to turn. The rest, as they would say, is history, said Mr. Gartel, a digital innovator heralded as the pioneer of computer-generated imagery. One of his most-recognizable accomplishments Absolut Gartel, an advertising campaign for Absolute Vodka ran in dozens of American magazines between 1991 and 2001. The splashy visual featured a bottle of the brand-name vodka floating amid a background of surreal squiggles. It served as a breakthrough piece for both the alcohol and the artist. Mr. Gartel, who designed the poster for the 2009 Naples International Film Festival, will sit in the spotlight again Sunday, Feb. 8, at the Grammy Awards. The Recording Academy commissioned him to create the official image for this years ceremony: a life-size replica of the iconic gramophone wrapped in the same psychedelia as his art cars. Im trying to say what I usually say, which is, This is something youve never seen before, and its very representative of my style, Mr. Gartel said. I leave it up to the viewers to try to figure it out. Mr. Gartel joins a growing list of artists, including Shepard Fairey, Charles Fazzino, Frank Gehry, Marcus Glenn, Phil Hansen and David LaChapelle, who all have created official Grammy Awards artwork. Mr. Gartels piece will appear on all promotional items for the Grammys, including posters, tickets and other collateral, and will grace the cover of the program book. The 1-month undertaking began in September, when The Recording Academy delivered the 4-foot, 200pound maquette to his home. It arrived via truck in a crate.

Its huge. He fired up his high-end Macintosh loaded with proprietary software and created the design, printing it on adhesive vinyl nine panels in all. I babysat it for a month, Mr. Gartel said. I missed weddings. I missed parties. I missed everything. After wrapping the Grammy in vinyl, he added prismatic material, three-dimensional Mylar and a touch of glitter. Theyve never done anything like this before in their lives, which makes it special, Mr. Gartel said. Its bewildering and amazing and overwhelming. It raises lot of bars for the future. The same material used on the Grammy Award appears on the art cars, the most recent of which debuted at Art Basel in Miami. The $200,000 ride, a RENNtech Mercedes SL65, also lit up the field at the International Polo Club Palm Beach during the sports opening day. The 12-cylinder vehicle will greet Gartel in Los Angeles for the 57th installment of musics biggest night and all its preand post-event parties. If this is not the ultimate fusion of music and art, I dont know what is, said the first-time Grammy Awards attendee, who would like to meet as many musicians as he can, including Madonna, Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder. My expectations are very high. The Grammy Awards air on CBS from 8-11:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 8.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC18 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 5-11, 2015 FLORIDA WRITERSSweet, buoyant, inspiring baseball novel deserves an audience Where the Falcon Flies by August Sterling. Barringer Publishing. 280 pages. Trade paperback, $14.95. This is a very sweet novel: gentle, buoyant, inspiring. Can sweetness thrive in contemporary fiction? Im pleased to know that books such as this one are being written and published. They deserve an audience. Enough with the doom and darkness already. Cassie The Falcon Peregrine is an attractive, sensitive young woman just finishing junior college. Baseball is her passion, the arena in which she feels fulfilled and at home. From the Chicago-area suburban village of Hebron, this avid Cubs fan plays for a local team in a semi-pro league. Shes well liked, with supportive parents who respect her wishes while worrying about her future. Cassies life begins to change rapidly when a savvy, respected scout sees her play. Brock Starwood, who scouts for the Cubs system, comes to check out a pitching prospect on the opposing team. But its Cassies all-around play and all-out style that captivates him. Although no women were playing in the minor leagues, Starwood feels she has the talent to go all the way to the majors. He also knew the obstacles that stood in her way: tradition, male chauvinism, taunting and worse. Nevertheless, Starwood made an appointment to meet Cassie and her family, and the outc ome was the offer of a threeyear contract to play for the Berkshire Bears, the AA affiliate of the Chicago Cubs. Only Starwood could have persuaded the higher-ups to make such a deal; he was courageous enough to put his reputation on the line. Once Cassie signs, she is off to her new home in Pittsfield, Mass. The author, who resides in Cape Coral, does a fine job of characterizing Cassie both as a young woman and as The Falcon, a fledgling professional second baseman. He shows her in the context of family and friends as well as in the context of the ball field, the dugout and the locker room. The tension between these two identities provides considerable interest and suspense. As Cassie takes the long auto trip to Pittsfield, her thoughts involve this w p philJASONpkjason@comcast.net STERLING Will you help?

ROUND TRIP!* same tension, a mixture of anxiety and ambition. By the time she makes a stopover in Cooperstown, N.Y., to pay homage to the greats memorialized in the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Mr. Sterling has quite fully won his readers over. We care about Cassie, her dream and her destiny. Once she is introduced to the team, her trials and opportunities begin. Cassie balks (clever choice?) at any hint of favoritism because she is a woman, knowing this is already suspected and will backfire anyway. And yet she must accept private living quarters and private bathroom facilities. She doesnt so much want to be one of the boys, but one of the team members. She takes advice, works hard, proves herself and gains acceptance beyond what might be expected. She fights through a serious injury (she had come back from a far more serious one at the very outset of the novel), shows strong team spirit and takes advantage of her opportunities. Soon after her arrival in Pittsfield, another part of Cassies life begins to take shape. She gains the attentions of a young, dynamic college professor a native of the area who teaches at a nearby university. Ryan Wellman, a precocious student who quickly advanced through the academic ranks, shares with Cassie the stigma of standing out in the crowd. They both know the downside of getting a job that others want and feel that they deserve instead. Soon enough, its clear that these accomplished young people are made for each other. Its not clear, however, whether one career must be sacrificed for another if they are to be together. The authors handling of baseball action scenes and the world of minor league sports rings true. Seeing Cassie learn how to maneuver around second base, how to improve her swing and how to compensate for her lack of power helps us understand the rigors that go along with endless bus rides, modest accommodations and long periods away from home even those likely to be temporary homes. Through Cassies experiences we learn about the business end of the sport as well, including how and why deals involving players are made. Where the Falcon Flies is a thoroughly enjoyable, upbeat read. But will she make it to the majors?

BEACH READINGDownton Abbey: Rules for Household Staff Introduction by Mr. Carson (St. Martins Press, $14.99)REVIEW BY LARRY COXWithout a doubt, Downton Abbey has become one of the most popular series on public television. First appearing in the United Kingdom in 2010, the series made its American debut on PBS the following year and became an immediate hit. Season five is now underway. Much like Upstairs, Downstairs, the plot focuses on an aristocratic family and its staff. Set at a fictional estate in Yorkshire, the day-to-day life of the Crawley family unfolds during the early years of the past century. What makes Downton Abbey so fascinating is its attention to detail. The various duties of staff members such as the footman, ladys maid, housekeeper and groundsman, and what each is expected to accomplish with effortless dignity, finesse and pride, are detailed. These tasks include how to set a proper table, put together a proper tea tray and even how to leave a room quietly in order to be as unobtrusive as possible. This little handbook provides guidelines for the staff so the estate will function flawlessly. From the cleaning and storing of fine silver to the preparations for hosting Their Majesties the King and Queen or other members of the Royal Family, this little guide provides an inside glimpse of the intricate workings of a grand estate in Britain a century ago. Although there is no actual Downton Abbey, this guide is based on authentic manuals from the period. The hierarchy of Lord and Lady Granthams staff underscores the necessity of order and organization to ensure that the running of such a large estate goes as smoothly as possible. This is a fun guide and documents almost every aspect of working downstairs in a grand estate during the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

OFFERS EXPIRE ON FEBRUARY 28, 2015 KOVEL: AN TIQUESReal-life Dexter inspired racinghorse toys of the 1800s BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELOld toys are expensive today because they are scarce. Children played with the toys, damaged them, scratched the paint, lost parts and eventually the toy was discarded because of its shabby condition. Today, collectors of early tin toys pay premium prices for toys in good condition with most of the original paint. To repaint it lowers the value. One of the most famous 19th century American toy makers was George Brown. He worked in Connecticut from 1856 to about 1880. The toys were made of tin-plated sheet metal cut into pieces, soldered together and hand painted. His partner was a clock maker and they made their own clockwork mechanisms. They made both push toys and toys that moved after the clockwork was wound. A well-documented tin toy was made to represent the horse Dexter, a famous harnessracing champion of the 1860s. A Currier and Ives print and many weathervanes pictured Dexter during his career. The horse was on a wheeled platform and originally had a removable rider, but only one complete toy is known today. A riderless horse was offered for about $1,500 at a past auction by Bertoia in Vineland, N.J. It would sell for much more today. Q: I have a redwood rocking chair that has springs in the back for recoil. It was made by Vandy-Craft of Chicago, Illinois. How old is it and what is it worth? A: The name Vandy-Craft was trademarked by Edward A. Vandy of Park Ridge, Illinois, in 1952. The trademark expired in 1994. The company was known for its redwood patio and garden furniture. Chairs, tables, ottomans, chaise lounges, settees, and other items were made. A high-back rocker made by Vandy-Craft, originally $17.99, was advertised for $9.99 in a 1962 newspaper. The rocker came with thick foam cushions. The value today with cushions is about $100. Q: I got six Wedgwood plates from my aunt, who was a great estate sale shopper and antique collector. The backs are marked with a vase with three stars under it. The words Wedgwood, England and Ovington Brothers are below that. Is there a way to tell how old they are? A: Wedgwood first used the Portland vase mark beginning in 1878. Three stars were added under the vase in 1900. Ovington Brothers were importers with showrooms in Brooklyn and Chicago. The company was started by Theodore and Edward Ovington in 1845. Some manufacturers made china patterns specifically for Ovington Brothers. The name of the company was changed to Ovingtons sometime after 1922. Your Wedgwood plates were made between 1900 and the 1920s. Q: I have a songbook from the 1937 movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The cover reads Souvenir Album, Words and Music of All the Songs from The Worlds Greatest Picture, Walt Disneys Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It was published by Irving Berlin, Inc. The cover has a small tear and one corner is folded down. What is it worth?

The rare tin toy was made about 1880 by George Brown, a famous toy maker from Connecticut.A: Snow White was the first full-length animated picture made. Walt Disney won an honorary award at the 1939 Oscars ceremony recognizing the film as a significant screen innovation. Shirley Temple presented the award, one large statuette and seven smaller ones. Its one of the highest grossing movies of all time. The movie has been re-released several times and was made on video for home viewing in the s. Many souvenirs of the original movie were made. This souvenir album is fairly common and sells for $5 to $10. Your copy, with cover damage, is worth about $5. Q: I inherited a collection of over onehundred 10and 12-inch records from my great uncle. Most of the records are from the early 1900s. The collection includes popular songs of that era and operatic solos by Enrico Caruso and others. All the records are in good shape and playable. Do they have any value? Are there collectors of such items? A: The value of old records is determined by the fame of the recording artist, the sound quality and the condition of the record. Records made in the first half of the 20th century were made of shellac, a mixture of resin and fiber. The first 10-inch records were made in 1901 and the first 12-inch records in 1903. The most valuable records are not necessarily the oldest and it can be difficult to sell old records. Most sell for only a few dollars, usually $10 or less. You can find groups and publications online that will help you find collectors, or take your records to a store that buys and sells used records. Theyll tell you if any are worth more than a few dollars and which ones are worthless. Remember, when selling to a dealer or shop, expect to get half of what they think they can sell the item for. They have to make a profit, too. Q: I own a bronze statuette of Rebecca at the Well that was cast in two sections. The two pieces have come loose and have to be tightened up. The woman carrying a water jug is separate from the stone steps. Its about 2 feet high. Can you recommend a restorer? A: This should be a relatively easy repair since nothing is broken or missing. Any good antiques restorer should be able to fix it. The pieces just screw together. Contact a museum or antiques store in your area to see if they have someone who does restoration. Tip: When a house floods, special care is required. Save the things that are undamaged first, not the items that are soaked. Get metal legs off oriental rugs. Rust leaves a permanent stain.

Consignment! Trade! Pre-Owned Womens, Mens & ChildrensDesigner Fashions with Impeccable Style and Sophistication Shell we craft? Bonita club creates decorative items for charity sale BY LAURA TICHY-SMITHFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe items seen at the Bonita Springs Shell Club annual sale dont seem the type that wash up on the shore delicate dolls and fanciful critters amid the blooming bouquets and jewelry. But every clever creation that leaps from the minds of the clubs 55 members is constructed primarily or entirely from shells, many of which were found at local beaches. Club members gather every Thursday morning to craft and chat as they create on behalf of local charities. They work all year just to prepare for their one sale on the first weekend of February. The craft items are priced to sell, ranging from $1 to $35 each. The group sells a cookbook called Shell We Cook? with members 500 favorite recipes. They also run a raffle for gift baskets worth around $100 each that are donated by local businesses. Shell clubs can take two different tracks for the hobby. One track is specimen collecting, known as conchology. The other is making craft items, and that is what the Bonita club focuses upon. Since 1998, the club has donated $80,000 to local environmental and educational charities, such as Turtle Time Inc., the organization that protects sea turtle nests on local beaches. The club has donated to the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum on Sanibel Island, and the Friends organizations for DelnorWiggins Pass State Park, Lovers Key State Park and Barefoot Beach Preserve County Park. The group receives help with its charitable mission in the form of a donated room from its new host, Emeritus of Bonita Springs, a retirement community behind the Promenade at Bonita Bay. Emeritus receives benefit from providing the space because its residents can attend the meetings; some of them craft, while others simply come to enjoy the conviviality of the group. Beyond the camaraderie, the club benefits its members by teaching the intricacies of shell crafting. Theres more to the hobby than picking shells off the beach and going home to use a glue gun. For example, first the shells have to be cleaned. There are certain shells you clean a certain way, and there are other shells you clean another way, because you dont want smelly shells, member and publicity chairman Danielle Korson explains. You cannot collect shells containing live animals, but sometimes there are dead animals still inside the shells that need cleaned out. Then there is the matter of the color of the shells. While some shells naturally occur in the perfect color as well as size and shape for a project, other shells have to be dyed to the desired color. Club members have worked out special recipes for the dying process and share the information as part of the training. While all items constructed using the clubs shells must remain with the group for the annual charity sale, the members donation of time is compensated by the new skills they can ply in their own shell crafting projects at home. It takes a lot of shells to float a years worth of charitable shell crafting. Ms. Korson estimates that it takes well over 100,000 shells a year to construct the clubs annual output. As shell hobbyists, club members take to the beaches to find the raw materials, particularly after tropical storms, but it takes even more to make the craft items. Even dining out becomes an opportunity to collect by ordering seafood dishes served on shells and taking the empty remnants home, she says. A lot of the shells we use are local, but we do have to purchase some shells from other areas just because we cant get all the shells we need all the time, Ms. Korson says. The club gratefully accepts the donation of any shell collections that people no longer wish to keep. Jingle shells picked from local beaches are perfect for crafting roses.

CELEBRITY EXTRARicci takes an ax to her latest role BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: I absolutely loved Lifetimes Lizzie Borden Took an Ax, and was so happy when you wrote that the network is turning it into a series. Can you give me any more information? Steff S. in FloridaA: I do have a few more details about the Lifetime limited series, which sees Christina Ricci taking up her ax again as Lizzie Borden, with Clea DuVall returning as her sister, Emma. And more great news for fans: The Lizzie Borden Chronicles has been extended from six episodes to eight, with the series airing sometime this April. Chronicles delivers an intense and fictionalized account of actual events and people surrounding Lizzies life after her controversial acquittal of the horrific double murder of her father and stepmother in 1892. The exonerated figure lives a life awash in newfound celebrity and filled with scandalous love affairs. But when numerous people close to Lizzie ranging from her half-brother, William, to Broadway luminaries and business associate/underworld kingpin Mr. Flowers start to die mysteriously under brutal and strange circumstances, legendary Pinkerton detective Charlie Siringo becomes determined to prove her involvement in their deaths. Jessy Schram plays Nancy OKeefe, an alluring and ambitious actress and dancer who befriends Lizzie, while Emmy nominee John Heard portrays William Almy, the business partner of Lizzies murdered father. Q: You told us that Hannibal would be back as a midseason show, but I havent heard anything about when it will be on. Please help! Daniel S., via emailA: I promise I did not lie to you, Daniel. NBC merely changed up the timing of the season-three premiere of the cult-hit drama. The network announced that it will air the series this summer, which I think will actually be good for the show, which sometimes is lacking in the all-important viewer numbers. With less competition over the summer, maybe more people will find their way to Hannibal and help propel it to a much-deserved fourth season. The new season will take story elements from Thomas Harris Hannibal Rising and Red Dragon novels, and will include a different origin story for Dr. Lecter, according to show runner Bryan Fuller.

Among the coterie of famous cooks were Anthony Bourdain, host of The Travel Channels No Reservations, and Eric Ripert, executive chef at Le Bernardin in New York City. Its such an honor to be invited to this prestigious event, Mr. Love said. Its also inspiring. Being among such talented chefs always gives my creative juices a boost. At the four-day event, he and his son Ryan created an outdoor chocolate shop, held a demonstration and provided desserts for the closing gala. Take Note: Two Naples landmark restaurants celebrate milestones this month: The Dock at Crayton Cove turns 39 years old on Feb. 6, and Riverwalk at Tin City turns 36 on Feb. 27.

Its truly amazing to look back at the history of these restaurants and to celebrate with many longtime staff members (some from the very beginning) and our loyal patrons and friends, Mr. DePasquale says.

After perusing the menu and the specials board a bit, I settled on a soup and salad combo that seemed perfect for a light bite. Black bean soup and chicken bacon Caesar salad was the pair I chose, and it was perfect for what was quickly turning into a gray and drizzly afternoon. The soup was a rich black/brown with a fair amount of thick broth that held black beans (duh), celery and onion. The salad stole the show, however, with bite-sized pieces of chicken tossed with Skillets bacon (which Ive long lauded as the best restaurant bacon Ive ever had), romaine, shredded Parmesan cheese and Caesar dressing. It was not a fancy lunch, but it did the trick and gave me the fuel I needed to finish the afternoon on a high note. One More Thing: Skillets has always been the go-to breakfast/lunch joint our family visits because it never disappoints. I enjoyed my lunch, but we keep going back for the potato casserole, sourdough waffles, banana bread, thick bacon and fresh-squeezed orange juice. One of the eggs Benedicts always make it to the table somehow, despite the fact that we all walk in the restaurant ready to go to the mat for our selection. Family-style is how we tend to take our meals at Skillets, because we refuse to compromise on so many of their breakfast items.

Yum Yum Shrimp was a plateful of sweet and tangy fried shrimp. Crab cakes are a house specialty, and they were indeed full of lump crab meat held together by what appeared to be bits of back fin, all lightly breaded and sauted to a golden brown. Cedarplanked salmon was nicely done, served with pomegranate molasses and rice studded with sliced almonds, dried cranberries and orange zest. For dessert: a slab of warm bread pudding with raisins, caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2013 FISH, Village at Venetian Bay, 4369 Gulf Shore Blvd., Naples; 263-3747 At this stylish bistro, you can have your fish cooked or raw and, either way, be assured of a well-executed meal. Space is tight in the dining room, so those who need more of it might want to sit on the patio, weather permitting. Oysters Rockefeller were tasty but pricey ($20); a grilled octopus appetizer was skillfully rendered. Blackened redfish with etouffee sauce and a heaping bowl of cioppino had nearby patrons enviously eyeing our table. Both were excellent. Should you have room for dessert, go for the tiramisu.

From the list of creative cocktails, I loved the Watermelon Fresca (organic cucumber vodka, watermelon juice, cucumber and mint). An octopus and white bean appetizer was a superb blend of flavors and textures. Grilled artichoke hearts were tender and delicate, served with a lemon aioli. Perfectly cooked, the rotisserie chicken was served with mushrooms, fingerling potatoes and onions. For dessert: Bonaffee pudding, a toffee pudding with bananas. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2014 Meredays Fine Dining, Naples Bay Resort, 1500 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 7320784 The eponymous restaurant of chef/ owner Charles Mereday is a wonder of gracious service, sumptuous surroundings and the inspired cuisine that its creator simply terms American but that is so much more. Food is served as multi-course small plates (choose three, four or five courses or sit at the bar and order a large plate) and changes with the availability of seasonal ingredients. I can vouch for the perfectly crafted heirloom red and gold beet salad with grilled ricotta salada, mint and orange segments; butternut squash ravioli with tempura-fried squash blossom; Creole shrimp and cheddar grits; grilled salmon on sweet potato puree; crispy duck leg with wild mushroom risotto; and warm sticky toffee pudding with sweet toffee sauce and brown sugar ice cream.

Her inspiration can be seen in the dining rooms saturated planes of red, gold, blue and other deep hues. Even the assortment of serving dishes bright red or white with floral rim or polymorphic shapes suggests a sort of surreal artistry. When it comes to the food, the menu promises authentic, fresh, Momstyle cooking, and the kitchen delivers on the promise. You wont find gobs of sour cream and mounds of shredded cheese obscuring the food; you will see handfuls of fresh cilantro, sprinklings of crumbled queso fresca on the beans and lots of lime wedges tucked around the edges of food. Start with a succulent octopus tostada or a sampling of tacos stuffed with carnitas pork, chicken, al pastor pork, tongue or tripe. A house specialty, alambre, featured an abundant platter of perfectly grilled steak, chorizo and vegetables for tucking into tortillas. Beer served.

A classic papaya salad with shrimp, shreds of green papaya, carrots, green beans and peanuts was sweet, tart and spicy, as ordered; tum kha soup with shrimp and miso soup both proved to be faithful renderings. The special pad Thai studded with chicken, pork, beef and shrimp was a symphony of textures and tastes. The standout: mussels basil, with vegetables and savory brown sauce.

CUISINERumba Cuban Cafe continues fine tradition of Fernandez the BullI must confess to some trepidation when I first heard that Fernandez the Bulls south location had changed hands. The bastion of comforting Cuban fare had been a longtime favorite and while its newer, sleeker incarnation just off Immokalee Road does a great job, I didnt want to lose the more homey, casual older sibling. As it turns out, there was no need to worry. Chef Jorge Reyes, who worked at Fernandez, purchased the Airport-Pulling Road cafe and now his relatives work there, giving it that same warm, family flavor its predecessor had. The food remains fresh and vibrant as well. If you dont believe me, take a look at sites like Yelp and Urban Spoon, which are filled with enthusiastic reviews by people who have enjoyed their meals there. If there are complaints, they typically involve prices (Cuban fare has risen somewhat, just like all others over the past couple of years), and one disgruntled writer complained about the mojito. I would recommend you dont order a drink that relies heavily on rum for its success in a place that cant serve hard liquor. (The server told us they use orange wine in their version. Enough said). What Rumba does with skill and without pretension is classic Cuban food. Dress casually (Id recommend loose-fitting slacks, preferably with an elastic waistband) and prepare to eat heartily and well. A pitcher of sangria ($24.95, red or white) tastes like wine rather than overly sweet fruit juice, although there is fruit in it to add fresh layers of flavor. This is a great accompaniment to the well-seasoned dishes that follow. A basket of g rilled, buttery Cuban bread arrives next, accompanied by a cup of the cafs sinus-clearing hot sauce. The server will offer to refill the breadbasket but Id warn against it, simply because there is so much more to come. I had planned to order the Cuban nachos, but our helpful server recommended the Rumba chips ($14.95), a house specialty, saying it was a little lighter. She was correct. The dish consisted of long strips of crisply fried plantains and a dish of nicely seasoned ground beef (also available with pork) studded with olives and topped with a bit of cheese sauce. The plantains were just right for scooping up the tangy beef concoction. Tamal en hojas ($7.49) were two tender tamales with a delicate corn flavor stuffed with pork, scattered on top with bits of raw onion and accompanied by more of that fiery hot sauce on the side. This is a good starter dish. For main courses, you cant go wrong with classics like ropa vieja ($19.95) and lechon asado ($18.95). The former translates to old clothes, which describes the shredded look of the long-simmered flank steak immersed in a light tomato sauce with peppers and onions. The meat was tender and the sauce properly seasoned. It went well with moros, a combination of white rice and black beans. Plantains (maduros) provided a sweet contrasting note to the garlic, onions and spices. In the lechon asado, the chunks of pork were marinated, roasted and then grilled and topped with garlic and lemon sauce. The result was fork-tender meat that oozed garlic and lemon fragrance and flavor. It went well with the yellow rice and black beans and a side of fried yuca which also came with a sauce of garlic and lemon oil. We asked for half of our entrees to be packed up for another meal, leaving room for dessert. The flan ($5.95) was superb full of eggy flavor and of a wonderful, velvety consistency. It came with a large mound of creamy coconut that complemented it nicely. A slice of tres leches three milks cake was equally good, moist and just sweet enough. Rumba isnt large and doesnt take reservations. I had feared a lengthy wait when we arrived at 6 p.m. on a Friday evening, but there was plenty of room and we were swiftly seated. By 7, however, it was getting busy and there was a wait for tables the rest of the time we were there. Nonetheless, the staff never made us feel rushed, allowing us time to nurse our sangria, linger over coffee and dessert and enjoy the cozy room with its long wine bar, cheerful artwork on the walls and the pleasant buzz of conversation as family and friends at the tables around us enjoyed a satisfying start to the weekend.
