March in Southwest Florida means spring break, spring training and a certain kind of insanity on the roadways thats been known to send both locals and even longtime winter residents over the brink. So, its understandable that when some find small relief away from U.S. 41 or I-75 on a nearly empty roadway where they can practically feel the wind in their hair, they would want to keep the secret location close to the vest, guarding it like the DaVinci Code.

BY STEPHANIE DAVISsdavis@ oridaweekly.com ILLUSTRATION BY DOUG MACGREGOR FOR FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Naples Zoo is building a permanent home for an injured Florida panther and also plans to open a new veterinary hospital for large wildlife. The enclosure for Uno the panther will open this summer; completion of the hospital is projected for late 2016. Both projects are underway in cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The exhibit that formerly housed the Zoos lions is being converted into suitable habitat for 2-year-old Uno, who was blinded by buckshot. He was rehabilitated at Tampas Lowry Park Zoo and is currently housed behind the scenes at The Naples Zoo. When his permanent quarters are ready, Zoo visitors will be able to admire him as an ambassador for panther protection in the area. Saving panthers takes a village, says Jack Mulvena, president of The Naples Zoo. The FWC doesnt have the resources and personnel for rescue and rehab. Uno was along Immokalee Road last year (and caused a rear-end crash when a motorist swerved to avoid hitting him). Responders noticed he was behaving strangely, lying on a roadside berm in broad daylight. In addition to being blinded and hit in the hindquarters by buckshot, he was emaciated and dehydrated.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 12-18, 2015 COLUMN: LETTERSEditors note: It a robust week for letters. Here we share several, abridged for length only. On low minimum wages Roger: This was right on and should be required reading in business school. Tom McCarter, Sanibel IslandDear Mr. Williams: Thank you for your article Consider My Influence that appeared in in the Charlotte County Florida Weekly the week of March 5-11, 2015. You put into words what I feel deep in my gut and in my soul; that many managers are willing to treat and reward their workers (the very people who actually do the work) in such inhumane and greedy ways because they can do so legally, and are applauded and rewarded for doing so. It is not socialism to pay employees a fair wage. It is the right thing to do as human beings and it even makes sense economically. Well-paid workers have more purchase power, and do not need government programs to help feed and house them and their families. These workers can buy more products that help the bottom line of the very businesses that want to keep wages down to near-starvation levels. I was so moved by your article that I cut it out and plan to share it with as many nonTea Party folks I can find in my conservative town. Keep your articles coming! Rae Denison, Punta GordaRoger: While I agree with some of what you wrote about the Minimum Wage debate this topic is fraught with Catch-22 issues. I cant explain it in one email, but will send a note with some details. As a beginning however, economics plays a major role in determining the minimum wage, and personal values typically expressed by the media make it difficult to explain. For example: If youre one of those folk who believe that Hispanics escaping the country of Mexico should be allowed to cross our border illegally, and stay here for years or forever and that their children should automatically become U.S. citizens living off what was our Social Security trust fund it may be impossible to see the interrelationship between labor and capital. But those people are coming here for jobs and money (and they send a lot of $$$ back home to their extended families). As a result of the black-market relationships that develop between these millions of illegal immigrants, they will work for less money (to Immokalee). That income, however, far exceeds what they could gain back home. So they drive labor prices down in the U.S. (thats supply and demand as taught in Econ 101). A very conservative friend of mine used south-of-the-border labor to paint his house. Others in Lee County pay cash to get their lawn mowed. Those jobs are not available to American citizens who are newly moving into the lower levels of the job market. Does this make sense? Its happening millions of times per day, and thats just one aspect of the economic forces that have created this mess were in. Government regulations are another. I saw a T-shirt which said: I can explain it to you; BUT I cant UNDERSTAND it for you... Chuck HostetlerDear Mr. Williams: Are they all that callous? Certainly not. Are you just attacking the mean ones? Draw the line for your own charity. Be careful deciding what someone else should be doing. You have not walked in their shoes. Where is the magic living wage? Dont like making $8.50 an hour? Get a better job. With opportunity you can make choices for yourself. Personally I would rather have an $8.50 per hour job of my choosing than have the government decide what is good for me. Guess its just a pride problem. God bless you. Trevor Elmquist On impact fees in Lee County Roger: Republican Commissioner Larry Kiker has a dream. Lee County, he dreams, can simply replace the impact fees he shredded with money from the state and federal governments. Lots of money from the other governments suddenly would be handed to the good folks of Lee County to pay for their growth. Never mind that the federal government has trillions of dollars of debt and the state is glued to the idea of counties doing more for fewer state dollars. Larry wants you to buy his dream. Remember why a much smarter Florida Legislature once created impact fees in the first place? To take some of growths burdens off the backs of locals and the state. Would todays Legislature really be inclined to pick up the slack for a county that drastically cut its impact fees? Kikers absurdities, such as his nonsense about how impact fees have outlived their purpose, are simply an example of what happens when voters elect people who just cant seem to do enough for the real estate and building industries. When Lee Countys building industry whines, these guys snap to attention and salute. Neither Kiker nor the other three antiimpact fee commissioners have any plan or assurances from any other government whatsoever to replace the fees they cut to pay for growth. They simply did it and put the burden of that irresponsible action on the backs of the people theyre supposedly representing the locals. So, while waiting for all that federal and state money to rain down upon the county for all the additional and expensive schools and roads growth will demand, the local taxpayers will be saddled with paying most of those costs. Only Commissioner Frank Mann still understands the fairness of sharing the cost of growth with the newcomers. Like Tom Jefferson said, people get the government they deserve. To which H.L. Mencken added, and they get it good and hard.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 12-18, 2015 OPINION rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly The education of Scott WalkerWisconsin Gov. Scott Walker belongs to an embattled minority that happens to be most of the population. The root of this paradox is that Walker is an outlier among the political class in not having graduated from college, at the same time that a solid two-thirds of the country lacks a four-year degree. Such is the domination of not just college grads, but specifically Ivy League grads, at the upper echelons of our government that the nations political competition can be seen as one big intramural battle at the Harvard or Yale Club. And here comes Scott Walker, who dropped out of Marquette in 1990. For all that we celebrate the do-it-my-own-way pluck and creativity of the nations great entrepreneurs who didnt graduate, we tend to consider a four-year degree an indispensable stamp of respectability and capability. It shouldnt be. Walkers example stands for an important point: Success in America shouldnt have to go through a B.A. This is something that the nations elite has trouble grasping. Howard Dean expressed the liberal id on this question on MSNBCs Morning Joe. Discussing the flare-up over Walker ducking a question on evolution, Dean said: The issue is how well-educated is this guy? And thats a problem.The Washington Post ran a piece headlined As Scott Walker mulls White House bid, questions linger over college exit, although no questions linger over his college exit. He left to take a fulltime job with the American Red Cross. Mystery solved. The dirt, such as it is, from the Post report is that Walker had trouble showing up on time for French and was bored in a class on the politics of the Third World. The Post characterizes Walkers failure to graduate as one of a string of defeats he suffered at the time, yet the defeat was simply getting on with his life. As a practical matter, Walker used college as vocational education for what was his true passion: politics. He took up political science, but studying political science has about as much bearing on becoming a politician as studying marine biology does on becoming an Olympic diver. Politics is something you learn by doing. Walker ran for student office repeatedly at Marquette, then for real office almost as soon as he left school, building a career that has made him more successful and influential than world-class political science Ph.D.s. We shouldnt overlearn from Scott Walkers example, of course. For many people, its better to graduate from college than not. But not for everybody. It would make more sense if we had a postsecondary system that had ways of training and credentialing young people that wasnt so overwhelmingly dependent on a four-year degree, which is controlled by a lazy, inefficient and tuition-hiking academic establishment. If Scott Walker wins the Republican nomination, Democrats will of course attack him as anti-education, but they will be falling into a trap if they make his lack of a degree an issue. When it comes to college, Walker is a representative of the 68 percent, and a symbol of all that is possible even without a diploma hanging on a wall. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.From Crispus Attucks to Michael Brown: race and revolutionMarch 5 marks an important but oftoverlooked anniversary. On a winters day 245 years ago, in the year 1770, an angry crowd formed in Boston, then the capital of the Province of Massachusetts Bay. People were enraged by the extortionate taxes imposed by the British Parliament. In order to quell the public furor, the British sent troops, who violently quashed dissent. On that cold day, people had had enough. Word spread after a British private beat a young man with the butt of his musket. By late day, hundreds of Bostonians gathered, jeering the small crowd of redcoat soldiers arrayed with muskets loaded. The soldiers fired into the crowd, instantly killing Crispus Attucks and two others. Attucks was a man of African and Native American ancestry, and is considered the first casualty of the American Revolution. It took the indiscriminate murder of a man of color, by armed agents of the state, to launch the revolution. Which brings us to Ferguson, Missouri. Nearly seven months have passed since the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said in opening his press briefing Wednesday. He was detailing the findings of two Justice Department investigations in the killing of the unarmed African-American youth by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson. The facts do not support the filing of criminal charges against Officer Darren Wilson in this case. Michael Browns death, though a tragedy, did not involve prosecutable conduct on the part of Officer Wilson. With those words, the outgoing attorney general laid to rest any prospect of a criminal trial sought by so many seeking justice for Michael Brown. But Browns death continues to send shock waves, through his community, and beyond. Importantly, Holder went on to describe the findings of the second, broader study, titled Investigation of the Ferguson Police Department. Local authorities consistently approached law enforcement not as a means for protecting public safety, but as a way to generate revenue, he reported. Ferguson, he said, was a community where both policing and municipal-court practices were found to disproportionately harm African-American residents ... this harm frequently appears to stem, at least in part, from racial bias both implicit and explicit. Ferguson is one of about 90 municipalities in St. Louis County, in the suburbs of the city of St. Louis. Ferguson and many other towns in the region generate a significant portion of their annual budget by heavily ticketing people for minor infractions. Despite making up 67 percent of the population, the DOJ report stated, African Americans accounted for 85 percent of FPDs [Ferguson Police Department] traffic stops, 90 percent of FPDs citations, and 93 percent of FPDs arrests from 2012 to 2014. Michael-John Voss, managing attorney at ArchCity Defenders, represents many of those harassed by these police stops. He told me, What we have in St. Louis, in the municipalities in St. Louis County, is a modern debtors prison. African-American are disproportionately targeted by police ... they are also exploited because of their financial inability to pay certain fines and costs related to that traffic stop. If they dont have the ability to pay, they become incarcerated. The fines mount, creating a vicious cycle, leaving the predominantly poor African-American victims trapped by debt. The 100-page DOJ report includes numerous, disturbing cases of racist Ferguson police conduct, from use of the N-word during violent arrests to emails with comments about President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama. One email depicted him as a chimpanzee; another predicted he would not last as president because what black man holds a steady job for four years. Further email exchanges revealed the extent to which revenues from infractions were actively pursued by city government. In one email, Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson bragged of the 80 St. Louis County Municipal Courts reporting revenue, only 8, including Ferguson, have collections greater than one million dollars. Eric Holder, giving what could ultimately be his final press briefing before stepping down (depending on if and when the Republican majority in the Senate approves his nominated successor, Loretta Lynch, who would be the first African-American woman to serve as attorney general), announced that Ferguson and surrounding communities will be under federal supervision. They will change, or the Department of Justice will sue them to force change. Its not about making minor reforms and plotting along in the same direction, Ohio State University law professor Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, told us on the Democracy Now! news hour. Its about mustering the courage to have a major reassessment of where we are as America, reckon with our racial history as well as our present, and build a broad-based movement rooted in the awareness of the dignity and humanity oFrom Crispus Attucks to Michael Brown 245 years later, two things remain clear: We never know what sparks a revolution. And black lives matter. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 12-18, 2015 take a new look at old San Juannonstop ights start May 3rd PROFILES IN PARADISEA carpenter by day, blues harpist by nightJerry Fierro, with his harmonica and occasionally the congas, is a regular guest when the band Mudbone invites other musicians to sit in for a jam session on Tuesday evenings at Weekend Willies. Jerry plays great blues and is a terrific blues singer as well. Its clear hes having a great time when he plays. His level of excellence is not easily attained, and hes had quite a musical journey. He was born the ninth of 10 kids, just five minutes after his twin sister Mary, on Dec. 8, 1958, in Paterson, N.J. Although there were no musicians in the house (his dad was an accomplished auto mechanic and mom was a housewife), there was always music playing. Jerry remembers his parents having great parties with jazz standards on the record player and sometimes a live band in the yard. He was a senior at Passaic County Tech High School, studying to become a baker, when he got the notion to play music. Inspired by watching a cousin play the harmonica and sing, he bought his first marine band harmonica in 1975 for $5.26 at the legendary Mannys Music in New York City. Two more really good things happened that same year, he says: First, he was introduced to Bob Hoochie-Coochie Paolucci, who taught him what to play and, more importantly, what not to play. Hooch is still out there doing his thing in Long Island, New York, he says. And second, he met Son Lewis (Silk City Records) by answering an ad in the local music rag. Son is a true bluesman who never made it big but should have, he says. He must have seen something in me, because he would sneak me into nightclubs to perform when I was 16. Weve been playing on and off together ever since. After a few years playing with Mr. Lewis, Jerry got the opportunity to expand his horizons by joining Impact, a local band of brothers (now called The Flying Mueller Brothers). They played the blues and almost every other genre of music, too. For eight years, from 1978 to the band played the New York metro area. It was during that time that Jerry met blues harpist Sonny Terry. Renowned for his unique style of hootin and hollerin, Mr. Terry gave Jerry lessons on the harmonica. Other highlights of Jerrys music career include playing with such greats as Junior Wells, Hubert Sumlin, Johnny Copeland, Jorma Kaukonen, Felix Cavaliere and now the best players in Southwest Florida Mudbone, he says. In 2014 Jerry won the trophy for Overall Champion in the Forida Harmonica Competition. He met his wife Lorraine in 1985 and they were married in 1987. Their adult children are Jenna and James. To this day, says Jerry, I believe Id be in an alley somewhere if it wasnt for Lorraine. Shes a practicing home care physical therapist in Lee and Collier counties and also an area manager for 25 Drayer physical therapy clinics across the south and east. A carpenter for more than 30 years, Jerry earns his living in construction. Working for Architectural Structures Inc. of Naples, he builds pergolas and kitchens for outdoor living areas, among other things. His hobbies include fishing, boating and poker and encouraging and supporting local artists and music.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 12-18, 2015 But, honestly do most tourists really care? While on vacation, are they beating the clock to work, rushing to a dentist appointment, or cursing their way to the car pick-up line school? Other than going to the beach, finding an outlet mall or just happily driving around enjoying sights like palm trees and traffic lights, vacationers arent burdened with an agenda. Nevertheless, this issues handy guide will serve not just the locals, but the savviest of snowbirds who want to shave off some minutes on the road to enjoy just a few more with their toes in the sand or at the raw bar. Navigating Lee CountyMike Cannington is the director of operations for Bowling Management Associates which has bowling centers all over Southwest Florida as far north as Port Charlotte and as far south as Naples. He estimates that he drives an average of 400 too 500 miles a week during high season and, frankly, he sounds weary almost shell-shocked, Ive been at this job for five years and the traffic is more brutal than its ever been. Seriously, this is the worst year Ive seen by far, he says. I dont know what it is maybe the upturn in the economy? The terrible weather up north? Probably a little bit of both. Last year, weather experts dubbed the unusually frigid winter The Polar Vortex. This year, its The Siberian Express. In late February, Flint, Mich., tied its record low of 25 below zero originally set in 1976. At the same time, even as far south as Lynchburg, Va., the mercury plunged to 11 below. By contrast, last Tuesday, Southwest Florida hit a record high of 87. So, go figure theres an influx of freezing northerners headed toward the sun and theyre using automobiles to get around. At the Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization, Director Don Scott is optimistic about newer roads that have opened, roads that Mr. Cannington relies on, but that arent on the radars of out-oftowners. The Metro Parkway extension, Michael G. Rippe Parkway, has made it possible to get drivers from as far north as downtown Fort Myers all the way to south Lee County at Alico and 41. Known around town as The Rippe, the flyover extension starts at Six Mile Cypress by Sun Harvest Citrus with only a single traffic light until drivers hit 41 by Alico Road. Its named appropriately, as the late Michael G. Rippe was the director of transportation development for the Florida Department of Transportation, District One. His work contributed to the development of many roads and bridges in Southwest Florida he kept people moving and so does The Rippe. The I-75 Airport Direct Connect opened last week and is expected to ease traffic on over-burdened Daniels Road, Alico Road and Treeline Avenue. There are no easy answers to the traffic challenges, but this one is going to make a difference, said Mr. Scott. Mr. Cannington has no interest in I-75 when heading to Naples, and cites a recent nine-car pile-up complete with a fatality on the interstate in Charlotte County as one of his reasons. I take the Three Oaks/Imperial/Livingston shortcut to Naples.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 12-18, 2015 NEWS A9 relatively intact. Solving the Collier Conundrum Shes lived in Southwest Florida since 1961, and kitchen designer, Missi Davis, of Naples is baffled by all the traffic this season, Ive never seen it like this before, she says. I dont even want to get in my car. Id ride my bike instead, but Id probably get run over. Ms. Davis lives east of Tamiami Trail, so, as she says, you basically have to go around your elbow to get to your thumb to get anywhere during season. Community liaison for the Collier County Growth Management Division Connie Deane can relate. She lives off of McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers and commutes to Naples five days a week. (She avoids the traffic on Colonial Boulevard to get to I-75 by shortcutting McGregor Boulevard to Winkler Road to Gladiolus Drive.) Once she gets down to Ms. Davis neck of the woods in Naples, Ms. Deane says progress is being made. Collier County recently began construction on the Collier Boulevard Improvements Project from Green Boulevard to Golden Gate Boulevard, which covers approximately 2 miles, she says. The project will six-lane the current fourlane north-south roadway. Plus, three major intersections, Green Boulevard, Pine Ridge Road and White Boulevard, will be reconstructed, which will include upgraded traffic signals and new street lighting. Collier County has done a lot to improve traffic flow in the last 15 years. There was a concept in the past that if you dont build it, they wont come, says Ms. Deane. But, people kept coming. So, in 2000 the county made a commitment to growth management.Charlotte shortcuts cut short Charlotte County residents may struggle less than Lee or Collier drivers when it comes to traffic, but still Mr. Cannington tries to take back ILLUSTRATION BY DOUG MACGREGOR FOR FLORIDA WEEKLYSEE SHORTCUTS, A10 5 2 3 4

U.S. 41 isnt fun not even in Charlotte County, he says. But currently, one of those back roads, much to the chagrin of Port Charlotte residents, Edgewater Drive near Harbor Boulevard, is under construction as it gets widened from two to four lanes, mostly in an effort to make emergency evacuation easier for the coastal population. Its the same problem for folks trying to cut through Gasparilla Boulevard. Islands of adventureMost locals do their best to avoid the barrier islands during season, but what if, like Nykki Rizley, you work on one of them? Her trip from the Royal Shell Real Estate office on Periwinkle Way to her home near downtown Fort Myers, where her husband and two toddler daughters hold dinner for her, takes about two hours. Its exactly 22 miles. If you decide to brave Sanibel or Captiva islands during season and dont want to sit on Periwinkle all afternoon trying to get back to the mainland, Ms. Rizley suggests you take Tarpon Bay Road to West Gulf Drive. From there, head south and follow the evacuation route signs, after a myriad of twists and turns and road name changes, youll eventually hit Lindgren Boulevard, which takes you over the Sanibel Causeway. Its not really shorter, says Ms. Rizley. But, its a shortcut because at least youre moving. Another favorite shortcut is to take Dixie Beach Boulevard off Periwinkle and loop around The Dunes Country Club to get past the interminable Periwinkle jam. That ones actually not as good anymore, she warns. People who live in The Dunes got mad, so the speed limit was lowered from 35 to 25 and now the cops sit on the side of the road and write down tag numbers. The following shortcuts were revealed by helpful Southwest Florida Samaritans who will remain anonymous to protect the innocent.Lee County If the new I-75 Airport Direct Connect doesnt offer the relief youre looking for, drive into the old airport off Daniels Parkway and you can take the Airport Cargo Road around to the new RSW terminal and miss all the Treeline Avenue and Terminal Access Road traffic. Veronica Shoemaker Boulevard goes the distance from Palm Beach Boulevard just east of downtown Fort Myers all the way south to Colonial Boulevard where it turns into Plantation Road and then dumps out at Six Mile Cypress. Hop on The Rippe from there and end up south of Alico on U.S. 41. Bypass most of clogged Colonial by skidaddling over to Winkler Avenue just west of Ortiz. You can go east on Winkler Ave. from 41 just north of the Edison Mall, to get to Colonial, too youll still have to deal with the congestion close to the I-75 ramps, but its something. And dont get Winkler Avenue confused with Winkler Road. Winkler Road is further south and a great alternative to busy Summerlin Road it runs north/south from McGregor to Gladiolus. Most local travelers say to avoid Fort Myers Beach this time of year, but locals need some sun, sand, and surf too. If youre stuck on Estero Boulevard around mid-island, you can bypass some of the traffic by hanging a left at Connecticut Street, another left on Shell Mound Boulevard and come back out to Estero via Donora Road. Its only seven blocks, but during a spring break weekend, it shaves off about 20 minutes of sitting in traffic. Headed toward the beach on Summerlin? Avoid the traffic at the Summerlin/San Carlos intersection by taking a left on Pine Ridge Road just past Walgreens. Treeline Boulevard isnt just a south Lee County corridor it actually runs all the way north to Colonial Boulevard. From there, take a quick right on Forum Boulevard and it takes you even further north to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and into downtown Fort Myers or east to Gateway. Folks whove lived in Fort Myers for a long time will know to take Crystal Drive to Metro Parkway, Metro to Hanson Street and Hanson to Evans Avenue, thus avoiding major thoroughfares. Use Old 41 to cut through Bonita youll avoid traffic and enjoy the scenery of downtown Bonita Springs. Collier County The Three Oaks/Imperial/Livingston corridor breezes you through Estero, Bonita and most of Naples (or vice versa) without having to brave I-75 or risk a road-rage incident on U.S. 41 Watch for cyclists though: this peaceful shortcut is a safe place for them to ride. Take Vanderbilt Beach Drive east to Logan Boulevard (past I-75) to avoid 41 and to get south to Immokalee Road it also helps if you need to get from North Naples to I-75. Avoid Pine Ridge Road at any and all times. That is all. Steer clear of Immokalee Road between 8-9 a.m. and again from 4-5:30 p.m. word to the wise. Try Orange Blossom Drive to get from Livingston Road to Goodlette Frank Road, but watch your speed.Charlotte County Edgewater Drive is closed for more than a year for widening from Harbor to Midway that includes three roundabouts and replaces three bridges. Since its always been a bypass, drivers will be forced to take U.S. 41. Those coming north on State Road 776 can take the shortcut to Edgewater and come out on 41 in Charlotte Harbor by Walgreens. Another way around the Edgewater construction is to take Veterans Boulevard and then Kings Highway to get to Punta Gorda from Fort Myers. The best Port Charlotte shortcut ever is this say you want to go to Harborview Road, up around the Islamic center, for example, and youre at Kings Highway near Olean. Just take Olean until it dead-ends at Loveland, a hidden through street make a right, and go down to Oakview. Make a left and it goes all the way through to Harborview. Heres how to avoid the traffic congestion between Aqui Esta and downtown Punta Gorda. While traveling north on U.S. 41, take a right (heading east) at Burnt Store Road. Travel the short distance to Taylor Street and take a left (heading north). In a couple of miles, youll be delivered back onto U.S. 41, in proximity of the Punta Gorda historic district. Continue north on U.S. 41 and find yourself in Port Charlotte in record time. SHORTCUTSFrom page 1
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 12-18, 2015 A11 All eyes are smiling as parade day draws near BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comThe 39th annual Naples St. Patricks Day Parade steps out Saturday, March 14, in a celebration of all things Irish. More than 40,000 spectators will line the streets to watch the parade and stay downtown afterward to celebrate. Chapel Grill has taken over hosting duties from McCabes Irish Pub, which closed its doors in 2013 after throwing the biggest St. Patricks bash in Naples for many years. Chapel Grill welcomes guests who want a view of the parade at 7 a.m. Parade day festivities start at 9:30 a.m. with a traditional flag-raising ceremony at Crayton Cove. The parade steps off at 11 a.m. and marches down Third Street South to Fifth Avenue South, then goes down Eighth Street South and winds up at Crayton Cove. Officials will judge participants and award a surprise prize for the most spirited entry. This years grand marshal is Irish musician Paddy Reilly, who is perhaps best known for his rendition of The Fields of Athenry. The folk song stayed on Irish music charts for more than 100 weeks and was adopted by the countrys sports teams as their preferred song to sing when playing internationally. The Naples St. Patrick Foundation funds the parade and this year is also giving $2,000 to each of the more than a dozen high school bands that are marching in the parade. The foundation has named Vivienne Hunter, a third grader at Lake Park Elementary School, this years Little Miss Smiling Irish Eyes. She is the daughter of Andy and Lyn Hunter.

Wine festival leads to $11.9 million distribution SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYMore than 30 charities in Collier County received more than $8 million from the Naples Children & Education Foundation to continue their work with at-risk and underprivileged children. At a celebration ceremony earlier this week, NCEF also presented checks totaling $3.8 million for its three long-term strategic initiatives, bringing the total amount granted from the 2015 Naples Winter Wine Festival to more than $11.9 million. NCEF is the foundation organization of the annual wine festival. Trustees celebrated grant recipients at the annual grants award ceremony at Bay Colony Golf Club. We are exceptionally grateful to all of the Naples Winter Wine Festival guests and winning bidders who made today possible, Tom Moran, co-chair of the 2015 festival, said. Through their generosity, the Naples Children & Education Foundation is able to continue to make a far-reaching and lasting difference in our community, and theres nothing worth celebrating more than that. A grants committee comprised of 11 trustees works year-round to determine how to distribute the funds raised at the festival in order to benefit as many children as possible by supporting effective, disciplined and strategic charities. The committee will maintain contact with grantees through the year to ensure the money is being used effectively. We continue to be astounded by the personal stories of the grantees and the impact the awards make, Jim Dixon, chairman of the 2015 Grants Committee and a co-chair for the 2016 festival, said. We are honored to support organizations that are improving the lives of children in need within our community, whether by providing adolescent nutrition and wellness, empowering youth through mentorship programs or inspiring them through cultural and physical activities. Among this years recipients are five firsttime grantees: Conservancy of Southwest Florida, the Gargiulo Education Center, the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida, the South Florida National Parks Trust and United Arts Council of Collier County.

Two local men who were among the liberators will share their stories from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Monday, March 16, at the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida. The first-hand accounts of Lloyd Rauch and Robert Miksa will give audience members a front-row seat to WWII and draw them into the larger story of human history. Mr. Miksa served in the 745th Tank Battalion, heading into Europe on D-Day and participating in various engagements, including the Battle of the Bulge. On April 4, 1945, his unit walked into the Nordhausen Concentration Camp, where he and his fellow soldiers realized exactly the evil they were fighting against. As part of the Reconnaissance Squadron of the 20th Armored Division, Mr. Rauch headed into Europe in February 1945. Moving quickly through France, Belgium and Holland, the 20th came face to face with Nazi atrocities at the Dachau Concentration Camp on April 29. Amy Snyder, executive director of the museum and education center, will lead a discussion with the men and will oversee a Q&A session with audience members after the presentation. Attendees will also be able to view the museums original exhibit, Dearest Pauline: A World War II Healer Writes Home, consisting of letters Dr. Price Duff, a physician with the Civil Affairs Medical Division, wrote to his wife a he journeyed the U.S. to England, France and then Germany, where he became a healer to the men and women who survived some of very camps that Mr. Miksa and Mr. Rauch liberated. Admission to the program is free, but seating is limited. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 263-9200. The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida is an outgrowth of a project at Golden Gate Middle School. Now entering its second decade, the museum is home to more than 1,000 photographs and artifacts, many of which tell the story of local residents who are Holocaust survivors or WWII liberators. The museum is at 4760 Tamiami Trail N. Hours are 12:30-5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday (guided tours at 1 and 2:30 p.m.), and 1-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (tour at 1:30 p.m.). Regular admission is $10 for adults, $5 for ages 12-18 and free for children younger than 12. Learn more about museum programs at holocaustmuseumswfl.org.

Dental Implants Starting at $1,295Fine points of the lawShooting upskirt photos of a 13-yearold girl is not illegal in Oregon, declared Judge Eric B utterf ield in February, thus acquitting Patrick Buono, 61, of the crimes of invasion of privacy and encouraging child sexual abuse. Buonos behavior was appalling, Judge Butterf ield noted, but since the girl was in a public place (a Target store) and no nudity was involved (she wore underpants), the specifics of Oregon statutes were not violated. Said Buonos lawyer, Its incumbent on us as citizens to cover up whatever we dont want filmed in public places. Is this a great country, or what? Felons, and those convicted of domestic assault, and those with a history of mental illness, cannot by federal law buy firearms or explosive devices, but Americans on the National Counterterrorism Centers consolidated watch list can and may possess an unlimited quantity. (In 2013 and 2014, 455 of 486 prospective purchasers on the list passed the background check, and going back to 2004, 2,043 of 2,233, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report.) Legislation to add watch listees as a banned category was introduced again this year, but has failed several times in the past. The annual National Basketball Association All-Star game in February provided a windfall for the co-host arenas proprietor, James L. Dolan, whose family owns not only Madison Square Garden but also the NBAs richest franchise (the Knicks), hockeys secondrichest (the Rangers), and the New York regions telecom juggernaut Cablevision. Among the government handouts Dolan receives is the 33-year (and counting) exemption from property taxes for the Gardens four square blocks (among the most valuable (plots of land) on Earth, according to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio) a government gift, in 2014 alone, worth $54 million.Great artThe three-week February exhibition of Alejandro Figueredo Diaz-Perera consisted of a blank wall in Chicagos West Loop gallery with the artist present only in the sense that he was residing in a narrow, 10-foot crawl space behind the wall with only a single sign alerting patrons (I am here, but you will not see me). Diaz-Pereras In the Absence of a Body was designed, he said, to explore the boundary between presence and absence. Owlfest A motorist smashed into a power pole at 2 a.m. on Feb. 25 in Tukwila, Wash., because, he explained, he was chasing an owl. (Police somehow found him to be sober and did not charge him.) Officials in Salem, Oregon, posted signs in February to warn joggers on a popular running path that they might be attacked by a rogue owl or owls, after four people were aggressively pecked at by dive-bombers. (One design for the sign came from cable TV personality Rachel Maddow.) A bar called Annie the Owl was scheduled for a special one-week event in London in March, for patrons to sip drinks while domesticated owls perch on their shoulders. Interest was so keen that a lottery was required for tickets. The continuing crisisAmericas least-interesting couple: Bill Bresnan, 74, of Toms River, N.J., has written a love letter to his wife, Kirsten, also 74, every day for nearly 40 years more than 10,000 in number and continuing, according to a February ABC News report. Weve never had a fight, he said. Their romance continues over, for example, playing Boggle at breakfast or having candlelit dinners with wine. (Bonus: Kirsten has hoarded all of the letters, filed by date, in 25 boxes.) Latest religious messagesMargurite Haragan, 58, was charged with two harassment counts against a Jewish woman in Boise, Idaho, in February after the victim complained of being screamed at and roughed up by Haragan, who was trying to pressure her to acknowledge a belief in Jesus Christ. After Haragan allegedly stepped on the womans neck and pulled her hair upward, the victim promised to become a Christian. Haragan then departed but returned two days later to continue the alleged harassment. (The genesis of the womens relationship was unclear from news reports.) PerspectiveThe pedophile loophole: The Mississippi Department of Education reported recently that federal student privacy law bars local schools from alerting the MDE about college-age student teachers who might be having inappropriate relationships with the K-12 students they teach. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act apparently controls regulation of the student teachers during on-thejob classroom training (or, as a reporter for the Clarion-Ledger of Jackson wrote, What happens in college, apparently, stays in college). The MDE, which issues educator licenses, thus may never learn of the inappropriate behavior of the student teacher. NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY C HUC K S HEP HERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

Unos new enclosure will have an 800-square-foot indoor area and outdoor space with a water feature and native plantings. Glass panels will give Zoo visitors a good view. Mr. Mulvena says the Zoo is purposely overbuilding the site to provide sanctuary for future injured panthers that cannot be returned to the wild. The local refuge will also mean veterinary responders will have blood donors more readily accessible when an injured panther needs emergency care, Ray Ball, director of medical sciences at Lowry Park Zoo, says. Right now, the Tampa zoos new veterinary hospital is the nearest facility that can handle panthers and large wildlife. At 3.5 hours away, its not a very efficient means of treatment for animals that only need short-term care. The new hospital at The Naples Zoo will complement the care small native animals receive next door at The Conservancy of Southwest Floridas von Arx Wildlife Hospital. Were excited about providing a missing resource like this, Mr. Mulvena says. The new hospital is estimated to cost about $2.1 million, $500,000 of which has already been dedicated by the organizations board of directors. The planned facility of almost 8,000 square feet will have a treatment area, surgical suite, x-ray room, lab, pharmacy, animal holding space, office space and a separate necropsy room. It will be instrumental to providing the best possible care for the Zoos animal collections and to panthers housed temporarily at the zoo, Zoo spokesperson Courtney Jolly says. Naples Zoo is certain that a fulltime staff veterinarian and fulltime veterinary technician, supported as needed by outside consulting veterinarians, will meet the Zoos current and future needs. Currently, The Naples Zoo cares for 80 species and 197 individual animals whose veterinary care is provided by local consultants. It is the only accredited zoo in Florida without an on-site veterinary hospital. Once the new hospital opens, it will likely be permitted to care for injured, non-native wildlife (the von Arx Wildlife Hospital at the Conservancy is only permitted to treat smaller, native species). Thats the tricky part weve been dealing with, says Joanna Fitzgerald, director of the Conservancys hospital. Naples has such a high number of invasive species, she adds, but there is nowhere to take a Muscovy duck thats been hit by a car. Staff can give them triage care or humanely euthanize non-native animals, but the state of Florida does not allow The Conservancy to provide them with long-term care. Additionally, Whenever we have professional colleagues to consult with each other, thats a good thing, Ms. Fitzgerald says. Thats going to be the biggest asset in having another veterinary center.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA24 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 12-18, 2015 Research findings could be a game changer in predicting, preventing Type I diabetes THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAThe genes that increase the risk of Type 1 diabetes have lost their hiding place. A research group that includes a University of Florida genetics expert has located and narrowed down the number of genes that play a role in the disease, according to a study published this week in the journal Nature Genetics. Knowing the identities and location of causative genes is a crucial development; other researchers can use this information to better predict who might develop Type 1 diabetes and how to prevent it. Its a game-changer for Type 1 diabetes, says Patrick Concannon, director of the UF Genetics Institute. Researchers gathered information about the genetic makeup of 27,000 people, some of who had Type 1 diabetes and others who did not. They then began looking for individual differences in DNA that raise the risk of Type 1 diabetes, using a technique known as fine mapping to pinpoint DNA sequence variations that can lead to diabetes. Their finding will make diabetes researchers work more effective and efficient by giving them the most detailed directions yet about where to look for the genetic variations that cause Type 1 diabetes and perhaps other autoimmune diseases such as arthritis. Weve taken this genetic data which was interesting but hard to work with, and weve condensed it down into something that people can actually use to begin to explore the mechanism of the disease, Mr. Concannon says. It moves it out of the realm of genetics to being broadly applicable to Type 1 diabetes research. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the bodys immune system kills off insulinproducing cells in the pancreas. Some 3 million people in the United States have the disease, according to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Experts dont know exactly what causes the disease but suspect that genetics and environmental factors play a role. The researchers findings are the most comprehensive yet in the effort to locate and identify the genetic risk variants for Type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune diseases, says Todd Brusko, a member of the UF Diabetes Institute and an assistant professor in the UF College of Medicine department of pathology, immunology and laboratory medicine. Researchers can now shift away from trying to determine which genes heighten the risk for diseases like Type 1 diabetes, Mr. Brusko says. Instead, they can focus on how genetic changes alter immune cell activity. And that, he adds, could eventually lead to new treatments that prevent or stop Type 1 diabetes and other automimmune diseases. Ultimately, this information will allow researchers and clinicians to tailor treatments to correct underlying defects in the immune system that allow for autoimmune disease development, he says. The findings are significant because certain interactions within the genome can now be analyzed to identify which genes and regulatory sequences cause the disease, according to Stephen Rich, the studys lead author and the director of the Center for Public Health Genomics at the University of Virginia. Defining the variants that cause Type 1 diabetes may lead to new therapeutic targets and treatments, he adds. The study also included work by researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Eli and Edythe L. Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and the University of Cambridge in England. The current study was part of the Type 1 Diabetes Genetics Consortium, which was established in 2001 to enhance scientists ability to detect genes and variants that are relevant to the disease. The Genetics Consortium has received about $50 million in funding from the JDRF and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.

Orr, OD, MD, MD, OD, OD SWFLEYE.COM CALL TODAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT! Breaking records aross the board, from surgeries to ICU and ER numbersRecords are made to be broken. And at NCH, were breaking them a record pace, experiencing our busiest season ever (no surprise, considering how record snow up north has driven tourist numbers in the Sunshine State way up this winter). Our North Naples emergency room is 10 percent busier than last year, and the number at our downtown ER is up 9 percent. Our ICU occupancy numbers are up 17 percent, and surgery has increased 21 percent. Overall system admissions are 8 percent ahead of last year, and the NCH Physicians Group has grown by 13 percent. One reason were growing is the quality we deliver. For three consecutive years weve been named as best in the region by U.S. News & World Report. Were the first hospital in Florida to become a Mayo Clinic affiliate, and ours is the only outpatient physicians group in Southwest Florida to be certified by the Joint Commission. And we anticipate additional distinctions from thirdparty reviewers including the Agency for Healthcare Administration and the American College of Surgeons. As we grow, our financial performance improves, priming the pump for expansion and even better and more comprehensive services. One case in point is our newest project: a 40,000-square-foot freestanding emergency room with full radiology and offices for 12 physicians at the corner of Immokalee Road and Collier Boulevard. The primary reason for all this record-breaking news, the asset that differentiates NCH, is the 4,000 men and women who this season are working harder than ever to serve residents and visitors alike. Over the past two months, NCH has added more than 200 colleagues. The community depends on us to be ready every minute of every day, and we are. In the pre-dawn hours one recent Saturday, I sat with a most competent and youthful team of downtown night ICU nurses at our downtown hospital. I appreciated their candor in recounting their professional aspirations, needs and concerns. All of our directors and members of the leadership team have been rounding more frequently to support the front lines. In my weekend visits with our night and day crews during this busiest of NCH season, I have seen their hard work, great attitude, compassion and competence at work. It all helps explain what makes us record breakers in every sense of the word. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. allenWEISSallen.email@example.com Its Local.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 12-18, 2015 MISSED OPEN ENROLLMENT?The Federal Marketplace will offer a special enrollment period starting 3/15 and ending on 4/30 for those who missed the annual open enrollment period for health insurance. REASONS TO WORK WITH A LICENSED INSURANCE AGENT HMIA000923 BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTON When a particular breed wins Westminster or stars in a popular movie or television show, fans consider the exposure a double-edged sword. Of course theyre proud that their Whiffenpooch is in the news, but they also know that too much publicity can bring unwanted attention from high-volume commercial breeders (also known as puppy mills) or pet owners who decide to make a quick buck by breeding their little Missy or Max, who may be adorably cute but doesnt necessarily have proven health or temperament. I see it all the time, says Westminster Kennel Club spokesman David Frei. The phone will start ringing in the home of the parent club secretary the next few days because everybody sees them on television. Beagle breeders are currently facing this situation. They first experienced it in 2008, when Ch. K-Runs Park Me In First (Uno to his fans) became the first beagle to take Best in Show at Westminster. Now Unos great-niece, Ch. Tashtins Lookin for Trouble, whose nickname is Peyton, or Miss P, has followed in his paw prints, taking home the coveted title. Beagle people are prepared for the onslaught. Unos win was unprecedented and caught much of the beagle world by surprise, says Julie Wright, president of American Beagle Relief Network. Many of us were not prepared for the heightened interest in the breed, but we stepped up our efforts and used it as an opportunity to educate people about the breed, which is not the easiest to raise or live with. You heard it here first, folks. Beagles are charming and totable, but they also bark and howl, will run off in search of an interesting scent (or a bunny) in a New York nanosecond, and will find and gobble anything that might be remotely edible. If you are interested in acquiring a beagle or any other breed of the minute look beyond the puppy lust occupying your mind and check out dogs available through your local rescue group. Choosing an adult dog can give you a better experience with a breed, especially one thats new to you. Rescue volunteers are a great resource for people interested in a certain breed. They are familiar with the breed as a whole and have spent time with the individual dogs available for placement. Its their job to match the dogs with just the right forever homes so they dont end up back in rescue. Rescue dogs are already spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated and have been checked out by a veterinarian, Ms. Wright says. The adoption fees are usually less than the cost to obtain these services and a fraction of the expense to purchase, raise and train a puppy. The dogs available through breedrescue groups are often there because owners have died or divorced, or for some other reason unrelated to the dogs behavior or health. They have usually been living with foster owners who can help you determine if the dog is a good fit for your family. They may already be trained and have a track record with kids and other pets. Although she recognizes the problems it can bring, Ms. Wright welcomes the renewed attention to beagles. As a community, we are happy for those involved with Miss P and looking forward to another opportunity to showcase the breed we love, she says. I am anticipating a positive effect for the many rescues who rely on us for funds to aid their efforts to rehome needy beagles. PET TALESBeagle ManiaGot beagles on the brain after Westminster?

Each and every year, daylight saving time throws me into a perpetual pout and jolts my mojo. Why, why do we pretend, for eight months out of the year, that its an hour later than it actually is? I realize there are folks who love a longer, warmer day but, with the exception of two days in January and three days in February, its always warm here except for when its hot, which is approximately 347 days a year. Daylight saving time just ensures that in the middle of an already brutal summer, nightfall wont come until at least after 8 p.m. Incidentally, Arizona and Hawaii dont spring forward nor do they fall back. Both states eschew daylight saving time and keep the clocks the same time all year long. Interestingly, both states are known for high temperatures and lots of sunshine, just like us. Go figure. Curious as to how this ridiculousness began, my extensive Interweb mouse-clicking through a myriad of Wikipedia links uncovered that the concept was invented in 1885 by New Zealand entomologist (insect scientist) George Vernon Hudson so that he could have more daylight hours to collect bugs. Dont believe me? Feel free to Google it for yourself. Apparently, insect scientists dont consider those of us with active social lives any more than we consider insect scientists. But heres the thing: Every single function in Southwest Florida begins at 6 p.m. I sometimes get impatient when people ask me what time an event starts, because I never have to check an invitation to know that its 6 p.m. Its always 6 p.m. Unless, of course, its happening at 5:30. We are not New York City; Southwest Florida is, for the most part, filled with early birds. We start our parties by 6-ish, finish them by 9-ish and are in our jammies by 10 p.m. During the normal, natural part of the year, we start our festivities just before sunset, and if someone wants to be fashionably late and make an entrance after dark, they can arrive at 6:30 p.m. for full head-turning effect. But from March until November, all because of a bug collector named George, its not dark until 8-ish and the events are still starting at 6-ish, which is not good especially for formal soirees, because there are gents in tuxedos and ladies in evening gowns (their hair-dos and make-up wilting), looking and feeling uncomfortable as they wander around cocktail hour with blinding, unflattering sunlight streaming in. And then, when it does, finally, mercifully get dark, its time to go home. I will never be a daylight saving time Diva. Springing forward is just not my cup of tea. And dont even get me started on that precious hour of sleep I lost last weekend. Ive barely sprung forward (my oven clock is still an hour behind), and I cant wait to fall back.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 12-18, 2015 MONEY & INVESTINGSuze Orman gives good advice, but also leads by exampleJust mention a personal finance topic, especially among women, and most likely Suze Ormans name will become part of the conversation. She was and is a financial adviser who became a motivational speaker, who became an author, who became a TV host, and who in the process of fulfilling all these roles, became a very, very wealthy woman. She has authored a long list of books: Youve Earned It, Dont Lose It: Mistakes You Cant Afford to Make When You Retire (with Linda Mead); The Nine Steps To Financial Freedom; The Courage to Be Rich; The Road to Wealth; The Laws of Money, the Lessons of Life...; The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous and Broke; Women and Money: Owning the Power to Control Your Destiny; and more. If you read these books or listen to her TV program, surely you will amass a greater knowledge of money, investing and finance. But maybe there is something more to be learned from this female financial powerhouse; something learned by a closer look at her business strategy and wealth creation. Ms. Orman saw a business opportunity, seized it and relentlessly pursued it. Twenty plus years ago, she saw a void in the finical advisory space: the middle class and lower economic groups were clearly missing a spokesperson who cared about their finances and identified with their problems. Her wellwritten prose and animated personal delivery made clear that she cared about this group and their problems; her audience, especially women, came to trust her counsel. Over decades, not everything recommended by Ms. Orman was correct or perfect advice but there has always been a sense that Ms. Orman wanted to deliver value to her audience and that her body of work was very good counsel. So, while current Internet searches will provide columns that state Ms. Ormans many instances of wrong advice, you should place such exposes in the context of years and volumes of very good counsel. Ms. Orman also understood the nature of most financial problems as being behavioral and she formed and delivered content so that behavior could be changed. She understood that people make poor money decisions based on poor personal relationships, wrong sets of values, bad habits, etc. Poor behaviors are not changed by a one-liner statement of do x and y and z. Behavior is changed by a repetitious message being heard and by having an audience identify with the problems of others. Her TV shows allowed viewers to identify with regular people. They could see themselves in others problems. Viewers could see the simplicity in solving others problems; and after much repetition, they might affect the same recommended change. Knowing that there are others who can admit to their financial blunders often allows us to admit to our own otherwise we stay in denial. Ms. Orman fills a void that a typical registered investment dviser will not do, as he or she generally will address investing of funds for retirement but not your habits of spending, saving, credit creation, financial support of adult children, ways to finance a home, etc. Ms. Orman does address those issues, and those behaviors are very much the core of success in your personal finances. Ms. Orman is highly entrepreneurial. It would be safe to say that some of her fortunes were not made from investing or from saving (topics about which she gives much advice) but from her entrepreneurial efforts. It has been the position of this column that wealth creation will not come from saving and investing but that it comes from either building your own business or working for a public company that grows rapidly and offers a generous stock option. Saving is a core principle. Investing is a core principle. But high levels of wealth are not created by either of those two. Wealth is often created by personal entrepreneurial efforts or leadership at a publicly traded company that allows stock and option accumulation. Ms. Orman is set to appear at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples for a luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Friday, March 20. For more information, visit wgcu.org/ category/events.

At the end of the semester in May, he will retire after 11 years at FGCU with his finger always on the pulse of Southwest Floridas economy, as founding director of the Regional Economic Research Institute. He brought skills and talent that were needed and continue to be valued by this community, said FGCU President Wilson Bradshaw. Hes been a consummate teacher, scholar and a community resource. Also an assistant professor, he has been one of the most familiar voices, his words steady and measured, to analyze the regions economic state of affairs. He became a reliable and trusted resource for reporters on deadline, colleagues, economic development groups, public officials and students alike. Gary is the kind of guy I know I can call, said FGCU Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs Ronald Toll. Hes become the go-to guy for economic analysis in Southwest Florida and beyond, and hes so gracious with his time. The school hired Professor of Economics Christopher Westley, who comes from Jacksonville State University in Alabama, to take over Professor Jacksons position as director of RERI. Hes going to come in and hes going to continue the tradition and make sure we are the resource to this community that (it) has come to expect, said President Bradshaw. Those are big shoes. Professor Jackson is as adept at explaining unemployment rates or housing market reports in plainspoken language to a Rotary Club as he is talking to a group of professional economic prognosticators, said Mr. Toll, tailoring the message to meet the ears of the audience. And not everyone can do that. RERIs regular reports track important information about airport passengers, tax revenue, building permits, unemployment, home prices, population and consumer sentiment. One survey found that finding qualified employees is the biggest barrier to growth for local businesses. Another study examined information technology employment in the region. The founder of the Lutgert C ollege of Business, Richard Pegnetter, who died in 2013, was also behind starting RERI and giving it a regional focus when it began in 2005. Gary Jackson, along with other faculty and students, help produce the reports. Really the key has been giving our students an opportunity to apply a lot of their knowledge and skills to actual studies, he said. Thats been a key factor in the Institutes pr ogress. Students work with RERI as part of an internship program. Its interesting to get kind of an insight and feel the pulse of whats going on in the community, on a big picture scale as well, said Anna Umstead, a senior finance major who will graduate in August. Through a program called Workforce Now, Professor Jackson established partnerships with Hodges University and Florida SouthWestern State College that will help the regions schools better prepare students for the workforce. Eight years ago as the housing bubble burst, RERI reports tracked the downturns progress through the Great Recession and into todays growing economy. Professor Jackson offered some insight about what we learned. Prices can go up and down, he said of the housing market. A lot of the thought process there was that prices will only rise, so we had a lot of speculation. That speculative bubble burst (and) created the financial crisis. It all comes down in my mind to who is managing the risk thats associated with the different loans. As it turns out the taxpayers, they ultimately ended up with a lot of the responsibility. For a while, Professor Jackson did leave school after earning his Ph.D. and teaching for a year. As an economist who dealt with electricity and natural gas markets, he worked for the Tennessee Valley Authority from 1980 to 2004, when he came to FGCU. He and his wife, Carla, raised two children in Chattanooga, Tenn. Both of them ended up moving to Southwest Florida, as did Professor Jacksons parents, who live in Cape Coral. So whats the first thing he plans to do when he retires? Receive phone calls from me, joked his successor Professor Westley. Professor Jackson said that would be fine. Its not like Im going to disappear, he said. He may also pursue volunteer work, and clean his garage. And he enjoys fishing, particularly for redfish and snook. I really like the backwater fishing, he said.

Huntington Bancshares Incorporated. Why you should meet with your job references (and what you should talk about when you do) SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYEach time you make it past the rsumreview stage and interview with a potential employer, the meeting seems to go really well. But then crickets. If you do hear from the employer, its only to say that theyve decided to go with another candidate. As you wearily send out application after application, you just cant figure out whas going wrong. Career counselor Peter Studner has an idea: One of your references might inadvertently be derailing your job search campaign. When a potential employer checks your references, its because theyre serious about hiring you, says Mr. Studner, author of Super Job Search IV: The Complete Manual for Job Seekers & Career Changers. Especially in todays competitive market, he adds, a single lukewarm reference can kill your candidacy. The good news is, by choosing your references thoughtfully and talking with them before giving out their contact information, you can guide the process in your favor. Mr. Studner, whose outplacement firm has helped more than 27,000 people transition from one job to the next, speaks from experience. In Super Job Search IV, he guides readers through the complicated process of evaluating their accomplishments, contacts and goals, and then channeling those things into a targeted and ultimately successful job search campaign. Here are five things he advises when organizing your references: Choose carefully Your best references will support claims youve made about your achievements, skills and experience, so ideally, theyll be people who have worked closely with you in the past. Consider former managers and supervisors, of course, but if youve been in a managerial position yourself, you might also want to include a few people youve supervised. Put some thought into how your references might present you to potential employers, Mr. Studner says. Effective references are good communicators who can discuss you and your work in an objective manner without exaggerating or offering long-winded tributes that might only provoke more questions in the interviewers mind. Think about how each reference can best support you While most references will give you a good to excellent report, some might inadvertently include a hint that your previous work was less than standard or that the circumstances of your leaving were not good. For instance, Cameron is a high achiever and doesnt suffer fools, might make an interviewer think, What if Cameron is too picky and demanding to get along with our team?Put some thought into what you'd like each reference to say about you, Mr. Studner recommends. Think about the specific skills and accomplishments youd like them to emphasize. Keep in mind that this information might vary from person to person, and even from potential job to potential job. Set up a time to meet Now its time to discuss your job search, career goals and rsum with your references. Whenever possible, your reference meetings should be face-to-face, Mr. Studner says. If distance is prohibitive, consider a video conference or phone call. And however you meet, make sure your references have a copy of your rsum. Equally important, he adds, is that you talk about the tough questions. When potential employers call your references, its unlikely that the employer will simply say, So, tell me about Taylor, he says. Ergo, your references will probably have to go beyond the script youve given them about your skills and accomplishments. Thats why its a good idea to talk about how the reference would approach common interview questions. This conversation might be uncomfortable at times, but its best to have an honest discussion about how each reference might approach difficult questions. To guide the discussion, here are some common questions potential employers might ask your references:How did you know the candidate? What were the circumstances of his leaving the company? Was she on any performance improvement plan? How did she do? What are his strong points? In what areas does she need improvement? Would you hire him again? What were her greatest achievements at the company? Who else supervised him? (Be prepared; another supervisor may also be approached, even though he is not on your list, Mr. Studner stresses.) Did the candidate live up to your expectations? How were her leadership skills? Was he appreciated by his colleagues? Was she reliable? Anything else you can add about the candidate? Keep your references in the loop So that they arent blindsided, keep your references informed about positions to which youve applied, interviews youve had and potential employers who have requested contact information for references. See if you can have your reference update you about when theyre approached and how the discussion went, Mr. Studner suggests. If appropriate, nurture the relationship with non-job-search communication, maybe over lunch or coffee. And when you get hired, thank your references for their support. He concludes: Just like your rsum and interview question responses, the more time and energy you put into cultivating your references, the more valuable theyll be. So dont treat references as an afterthought these people can make or break your job campaign.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Many Happy Returns!Here are a few tax tips that can save you money and headaches: Employ audit-avoiding strategies. Print neatly, if you fill out your return by hand. Report all income auditors look for incomes reported by payers and taxpayers that dont match, and for suspicious or suspiciously high deductions. Dont aim for a large tax refund. It means youre lending money, interestfree, to Uncle Sam. Plus, youre missing out on the opportunity to invest it earlier in the year, when it would have more time to grow. Revise your W-4 withholding to reflect your expected taxes. Contribute to an IRA. You have until April 15, 2015, to make a 2014 contribution to an IRA. The maximum allowed contribution is $5,500 for most of us, and $6,500 for those 50 or older, depending on your income. You can actually lower your 2014 taxable income by contributing to a traditional IRA or you can fund a Roth IRA with taxed dollars and eventually withdraw your money in retirement, tax-free. Learn more about IRAs at fool. com/retirement. Take advantage of any deductions and credits you qualify for. There are deductions for expenses such as charitable contributions, job-search expenses, self-employed health insurance premiums and tax-preparation fees and credits related to education, energy-efficient home improvements, the adoption of a child and more. Note that there are qualifying rules and limits for these, but theyre worth investigating. Dont put off your taxes if you cant pay the bill. Its easy to get a filing extension, but you must still pay as much of what you think youll owe as possible by April 15 or youll risk getting whacked with penalties and interest charges for failure to pay. Dont get sneaky, such as by understating income, concealing accounts at a financial institution, using false names on accounts, or counting personal expenses as business expenses. Finally, consider using a tax pro or tax-prep software. Its often well worth it. Treat Worry With ResearchMany years ago, I inherited a few shares of Squibb, a pharmaceutical company, and over time it split several times and grew greatly in value, merging with Bristol-Myers along the way. But at one point, in 2002, it slid sharply over a few months and stayed depressed for quite a while. I was vexed by my trust officer, who didnt alert me to the beginning of the slide, and I didnt know whether to sell some or all. It turned out well, but I was unhappy at the time. A reader, Lexington, KentuckyThe Fool Responds: Many great stocks tumble sharply on occasion. You shouldnt think immediately of selling, though. Instead, find out whats going on and re-evaluate. Do you still believe in the companys long-term prospects? Then consider hanging on.In this case, Bristol-Myers Squibbs earnings were suffering due to a temporary buildup of inventory, and a major drug was facing expiration of its patent protection. What would have mattered a lot then was its pipeline of new drugs, as they represent future earnings. The stock has more than quadrupled since that downfall, rewarding believers. Heres a Comfy StockYou may not have heard of VF Corp. (NYSE: VFC), but youre probably familiar with some of the major apparel companys 30-plus brands, which include The North Face, Vans, Timberland, Wrangler, Lee and Nautica brands recognized in much of the world.Sales and net income have grown by an annual average of 11 percent and 18 percent, respectively, over the past five years, and the company is aiming for its revenue to be roughly 40 percent higher by 2017. Whats driving this growth? Brand and distribution power, along with growing demand as the worlds middle class expands. The companys efforts to increase online and international distribution are adding significant sources of profitable business, in places where demand is likely to grow briskly. VF is also growing its 1,400-some store count aggressively, to sell directly to consumers.VF stock recently offered a 1.7 percent dividend yield, and its dividend has increased by 20 percent in each of the past three years, with management intending to increase it regularly in line with earnings-per-share growth. The stock has averaged annual gains of 15.7 percent over the past 20 years, and it has gained more than 25 percent over the past year. Its true that its not at bargain-basement levels right now, but it might still serve long-term investors very well, and at least deserves a berth on your watch list. Headquartered in Tokyo, I was founded in 1910, when I introduced a five-horsepower induction motor. In 1924, I completed the first large-scale DC electric locomotive made in Japan. I developed a fully automatic washing machine and an experimental nuclear reactor in 1961, and in 1969 I developed an online banking system. My offerings include excavators, dump trucks, lithium-ion batteries, automotive systems, rice cookers, shavers, dehumidifiers, elevators, escalators, insurance, logistics services, wind turbines, power semiconductors, information technology services, massagers, LED lighting, residential solar power systems, medical imaging systems and power drills. My consolidated revenue topped $93 billion last year. Who am I? (Answer: Hitachi Ltd.) Free InsuranceQWhat is FDIC insurance? W.K., Loxahatchee, FloridaAThe Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) was created during the Great Depression to protect investors against bank failures. It insures checking, savings and money market accounts (and CDs) for at least $250,000 per depositor at each bank and thrift. It doesnt cover stocks, bonds, mutual funds, life insurance policies, annuities and the like, though. For these, check with your financial service company to see what kind of protections may be provided. Learn more about the FDIC at fdic.gov, and more about your shortterm savings options at sites such as bankrate.com. (You do have an emergency fund with three to nine months of expenses socked away in short-term savings, right?) ***QHow risky is it to invest in commodities? J.J., Yoder, IndianaAAccording to Dave Pettits Guide to Online Investing (Crown Business, eBook, $13), Investing in commodities and financial futures is about as extreme as you can get on the risk scale. In global commodity exchanges, youll see trading in all kinds of things, such as interest-rate products, currencies, silver, gold, zinc, crude oil, gasoline, cotton, lumber, rubber, soybeans, pork bellies, sugar, coffee, wheat and corn. Investors are drawn to commodities because of the great leverage available. You can often buy items by paying only about 10 percent down. In an extreme example, if you buy $50,000 of orange juice for $5,000 and it doubles in value, youve made a lot of money by investing just a little. Of course, if it falls in value, you can lose much more than you originally invested! Smart people have lost a lot of money in commodities, and most investors should steer clear.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 12-18, 2015 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS Do good, be good The new man Im seeing says, Relationships take luck and hard work. Im with him on the luck but unclear on the hard work. What exactly does that work look like? The truth is, Im not sure I know. And Im petrified Ill get it wrong. How do I not screw this up? Ive been asking all my friends. Just dont screw it up, they say. But what does it take to be a good girlfriend? Just be a good girlfriend. This is the part where I walk away, exasperated. Im reminded of that old parable about the writing instructor who, when asked how to write, mimes picking up a pen and scrolling across the page. The wisdom being, the thing is in the doing. But what if we dont know what were doing? Many of us consistently get it wrong. If relationships were easy, wed all be in one. If partnering came naturally, thered be less angst surrounding it. Wed have fewer dating advice books, zero programs like Millionaire Matchmaker. And frankly, Id be out of a job. Relationships take luck, hard work and a certain amount of know-how. But where does that know-how come from? Wrestling with this idea, working myself up into a full-blown self-destructive panic, I thankfully stumbled upon Timothy Wilsons new book, Redirect: Changing the Stories We Live By. A professor of psychology at the University of Virginia, Mr. Wilson has given us a guide in the style of Malcolm Gladwell explaining how we create our personal narratives and how to change those narratives in order to be happier. He offers several techniques, but my favorite comes early in the book with the do good, be good approach. An idea first articulated by Aristotle, this particular theory states that people acquire virtues by putting them into action. If they act kindly toward others, they begin to see themselves as having kind dispositions, and the more they view themselves as kind, the more likely they are to help others thereby strengthening their new narrative. Doing good therefore makes one good. Brilliant. This was what I had on my mind last week when I received an email from an old flame. Hed be in Miami later this month, he said, and would I like to join him? I immediately started typing a reply, a very definitive yes. Surely my new beau wouldnt mind. Of course, when I think of the old flame, I remember candlelit dinners, a bottle of champagne on the table, my hand gripped in his as he whispered naughty sentiments. I stopped typing, my fingers hovering over the keyboard. This was no way for a good girlfriend to behave. Do good, be good, I thought. How does one become a good girlfriend? By being a good girlfriend. And here was the place to start. Instead of accepting the invitation, I declined. I worried that I might regret the decision, but to my surprise I felt steadier, stronger, as if Id begun using a muscle I didnt even know I had. There I was doing right, feeling right. And changing my narrative to someone who gets it right. Artis Henderson is the author of Unremarried Widow published by Simon and Schuster. artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 12-18, 2015 century. The late Jerry Tallmer, who cofounded The Village Voice and founded the Obie Awards for off-Broadway plays, called it a play about division of the spoils but the spoils are spoiled The Gordon family is squabbling over their inheritance, wanting to divide the family estate while their wealthy matriarch, 82-year-old Stella Gordon, is still alive. Stella still rules over her east Texas family, but she has been growing more forgetful lately. The specter of death hovers over the household; her 92-year-old African-American servant, Doug, keeps talking about how grand a funeral he wants when he dies. Yet he refuses to acknowledge hes unable to work anymore, and keeps fighting with the households two maids. Stellas three grown children are, in a word, spoiled. At 50-plus years old, not one of them has ever held a regular job. The lone son, Lewis, has flirted with work but could never hold onto a job due to his drinking and gambling. Two of the Gordon children live way beyond their means and have been spending part of their inheritance before their mother even dies, borrowing money from the estate. The greedy, bickering siblings continually pester their mother to divide the 100-year-old family estate, but she doesnt want to do so. She wants to keep the home and all its land intact. I know what youre all up to, she tells them. Plotting behind my back. The minute Im dead youll sell this house, divide the land and it will all be gone. Well, youll never do it while Im alive, I tell you that. Mr. Teachout, the theater critic, has a phrase for plays like this. He calls it a serious comedy. Its a tragedy of character and personality, though it doesnt feel that way while youre watching it, he says. You feel that after you go out of the theater and go over what these people went through, how high the emotional stakes, how much sorrow and pain. Mr. Teachout wrote in The Wall Street Journal in early January about Marion Castleberrys definitive biography, Blessed Assurance: The Life and Art of Horton Foote. Hes also discussed Dividing the Estate with various theater audiences, including Florida Rep donors and subscribers earlier this year. He has seen the play at least three times: first the off-Broadway production, then the Broadway production, and the remounting of the Broadway production, with a slightly different cast, in Hartford, Conn. Ive gotten to see it done more times than most people, he says, and it really holds up. Some plays have their complete effect the first time you see them and you dont need to see them again. (This) profits from being seen more than once, and it profits from being seen done by different companies. These are very rich characters and Im not talking about money. It plays very, very funny, he says of the greedy children (and grandchildren) all scrambling for a bigger piece of the pie. It gets a lot of laughter. And its dark laughter, believe me. The key, he adds, is that the playwright doesnt hesitate to play death, jealousy, fear and humiliation for laughs, so that when the tough moments come, they stand out all the more, (because) theyve been framed by this laughter.Footes historyMr. Foote wrote Dividing the Estate late in his career. He was known in the 1950s for his television dramas for programs such as Studio One and Playhouse 90. His play Trip to Bountiful, starring Lillian Gish and Eva Marie Saint, initially aired on NBCs Philco-Goodyear Television Playhouse in 1952 He was as well known as Paddy Chayefsky and Rod Sterling in the Golden Age of television, Mr. Teachout says. But he didnt maintain that level of popularity. Sterling went on to do The Twilight Zone and Chayefsky made films. But Foote went into a long period of eclipse. He wrote for the desk drawer. Mr. Foote did, however, win an Oscar for his screenplay of Harper Lees To Kill a Mockingbird. The movie opened in 1962. In exile in New Hampshire, he wrote his famous The Orphans Home Cycle of nine plays, basing his characters on family. Mr. Footes plays fell out of favor with audiences in the s because the era was not a time for soft-spoken theater, Mr. Teachout says. I think Foote fell from favor because people dont scream and shout in his plays. Theyre quiet plays. (The characters) dont usually open the door and find a gun, they dont engage in desperate, frenzied confessions Mr. Foote has been called the American Chekhov, the southern Chekhov and the rural Chekhov. Part of that is that Chekhovs plays are plays of atmosphere rather than plot, Mr. Teachout says. It doesnt mean that nothing happens, but that they are about a strongly defined group of people at a certain period in their life. Mr. Footes plays work the same way, he adds. Some are plot-driven, but most have powerful atmosphere. In The Trip to Bountiful, in which a woman wants to go back to a place important to her in her youth, he says, Its not about the trip, its about the feelings. Mr. Foote received a second Oscar for his original screenplay of Tender Mercies. The 1983 film starred Robert Duvall and Tess Harper. Mr. Duvall won an Oscar for his performance. The movie helped revive the playwrights career. His The Young Man From Atlanta played Broadway and won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1995. Mr. Foote has a specific voice, a specific style, and he has never abandoned it, though it cost him, Alan Pakula, the producer of To Kill a Mockingbird, says in the aforementioned biography of Mr. Foote by Mr. Castleberry. He has never cut his talent to the fashion of the time. And because he wrote his plays, whether they were going to be produced or not, he got what most American writers dont get a second act. In Mr. Tallmans Horton Foote 4 New Plays, the late actress Nan Martin, who acted in Dividing the Estate, says, Horton Footes rock solid artistic integrity shines though every word he ever put down on paper. He writes from his innermost instincts, has total empathy with the world of which he writes, and has never trimmed his sails for current fashion. And what roles he has given to actors! His people are supremely rewarding to explore and act; human beings with all their fears, strengths, foibles, cowardice, courage. Those of us who love theater, love him. Dividing the Estate won an Outer Critics Award for Outstanding New OffBroadway play and the Obie Award for Playwriting, before moving on to Broadway in 2008.Real people and hopeSo often, if a play speaks intelligently to its moment, its because its rooted in universality of character and life, Mr. Teachout says. Thats exactly the case with Dividing the Estate. Were seeing something happen in a particular moment in American history, and the way these people are responding to it says something about human nature. No matter how dark Mr. Footes plays are, theyre rooted in a fundamental hopeful vision of human nature, he says. I dont think hes a foolish kind of optimist, but I mean that hes a person who believes in hope and possibility, in the possibility of redemption, he clarifies. Foote is one of these playwrights who had absolute pitch in the way the people he knew in his youth talked. Everybody sounds right in those plays, no one sounds artificial or forced. The dialogue sits well on its own. It sounds like real people might have said these things. And although this plays are extremely poetic in its quality, the language is very straightforward. Its a poetry of situation and atmosphere and that too, is Chekhov-like. In the book Horton Foote 4 New Plays, actor Elizabeth Franz, who also performed in an early production of Dividing the Estate, says, When you act in a Horton Foote piece, most of your work is already done. You have only to try to go inside and find an innocence and believe in love again. Horton is pure love the purist voice we have today in the American theater. Although Mr. Foote, who died in 2009 at age 92, wrote plays about loss, death, the memory of death and the long-term effects of parting that is death, Mr. Teachout says, Hes never morbid, never ever. That generation took death as a given. They didnt hide it. They couldnt hide it; you had the funeral in your living room sometimes They saw the deaths of siblings, parents, they came to accept it as part of the natural order of things a terrible and cruel thing, but a normal thing. In subsequent generations, we wanted to paper it over. Very often, the funniest things that happen on stage are told in an unexpectedly blunt way. Thats why Dividing the Estate is so funny. It tells terrible truths about human nature with such bluntness and surprise, we cant help but laugh at them. This is one of the best American playwrights, he says. And Dividing the Estate, he concludes, is one of the very best of his works.

That Oklahoma! show surely sounds purty!You might expect a 72-year-old musical to be a little dusty especially one about a state that suffered through the Dust Bowl. But The Naples Players production of Oklahoma! is so full of life, the exclamation point in the title is more than apt. You get a hint of this during the overture. Musical director Charles Fornara leads his orchestra at such a fast clip that the music just charges along, like a cantering horse who wants to let loose and gallop. Even at this rapid pace, its a 2hour extravaganza. But it moves along quickly, with numerous scene changes. The joy of this show is that classic score by Rodgers and Hammerstein in their first collaboration. It opens with Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin and ends with the rousing Oklahoma! And in-between are all those other songs we know by heart: People Will Say Were In Love, The Surrey with the Fringe on Top, I Caint Say No!, Many a New Day. Based on Lynn Riggs novel Green Grow the Lilacs, the musical tells the tale of a community in a territory thats about to become the state of Oklahoma. The 20th century is in its infancy, the Dust Bowl hasnt happened yet, and theres a rugged, can-do spirit and an underlying sense of optimism. Were introduced to different couples within the show. Curly (Joe Zerbo) is a cowboy whos in love with Laurey (Brigid Wallace), whos playing hard to get. In a way, you cant blame her, because Curly is so narcissistic and cocky. Yet theres an attraction there, a chemistry that Laurey cannot deny. Mr. Zerbo had some trouble hitting some of his notes the night I attended, but he soldiered on with a disarming grin. Ms. Wallace, who is all of 16, is a slip of a thing with an operatic voice and a vibrato. It is difficult to imbue your character with much depth when you havent had much life experience. But Ms. Wallace seems able to overcome it, bringing a depth beyond her years to the role. Dennis Clark makes his directorial debut at the Sugden Community Theatre with this production; he felt strongly that Oklahoma! is a musical about young love, so he cast many teens and 20-somethings. Its a bit disconcerting, though, to see such so many young performers; it feels like watching a high school performance or a KidzAct production. (That is not necessarily bad; Ive attended many impressive KidzAct performances. Their Thoroughly Modern Millie of a few seasons ago still stands out in my mind.) But some of these performers look as if theyre not even old enough to shave, drive or vote. And that can be a bit jarring. At times it feels like watching a Bugsy Malone version of Oklahoma! Jacob Hartman plays Will Parker, a non-too-bright guy who wants to marry Ado Annie (Jennifer Price), a girl who, unfortunately, likes kissing whomever shes with. She even admits shes just a girl who caint say no. In the song Kansas City, Will sings about all the sights he saw in the Big City, with its seven-story skyscrapers and gas buggies, and concludes that theyve gone about as fur as they can go. Will and Ado Annie seem ideally suited for each other; neither one is the brightest bulb. Jud (Michael Millspaugh), a handyman on the farm, is nursing a dark sexual obsession with Laurey. Mr. Millspaugh plays him with great brutish menace. The fact that the actor is more than twice maybe even three times her age, simply adds to the creepiness of his desire. Mr. Millspaugh is chillingly convincing in his role. His duet with Curly, Pore Jud is Daid, is a highlight. Curly tries to coax Jud into killing himself, saying that hed discover how much people really liked him when they attended his funeral and said nice things about him. Carol Fox, who plays Laureys endearing Aunt Eller, turns out to be the anchor of the show. Shes wise and cantankerous, but also a live wire. Theres some extremely loud pistol shooting in this show, and Aunt Eller is one of the characters whos not afraid to pull a trigger. Unfortunately, because the cast skews so young, she also comes across as a Wendy to a crew of Lost Boys. She provides much of the shows humor and is also its backbone and moral compass. Jason Eugenides has a comical role as Ali Hakim, a Persian peddler who spins tales about his wares and also woos the girls. Hes funny, but not in a slapstick way; he doesnt play it too broad. And Amy Whitlock is perfectly irritating as a know-it-all with a Woody Woodpeckerlike laugh. But its a secondary character, Ado Annies father, played by John Reidy, who provides much of the shows funniest moments. Hes a crusty old man with a squint in his eyes and a shotgun, and just the way he barked Shut up! had the audience in stitches. The musical was much, much livelier whenever he was on stage. Mike Santos set design gives us a sunny Oklahoma, with spacious, light blue skies and bright, yellow wheat fields. Dot Auchmoodys costumes are all denim and gingham, cowboy boots and hats. And the sound balance, thanks for Bradley Van Houten, is perfect. You can hear the singers; the orchestra does not drown them out. However, it would have been nice if some of the singers enunciated more clearly. And I would have loved a lower register when a group of girls in the ensemble sang; they were so high, they sounded more like The Chipmunks. I know the Naples Players were criticized the last time they staged Oklahoma! because many in that cast (especially the can-can girls) were advanced in years. But it seems as though theyve gone to the opposite extreme with this current production. But this is a well-executed musical that wears its heart on its sleeve and is filled with warmth and goodwill. And its a golden opportunity to hear those wonderful songs that have never grown old. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Oklahoma!>> When: Through April 4 >> Where: The Sugden Community Theatre >> Cost: $40 general admission, $10 for students 21 and younger >> Info: 263-7990 or naplesplayers.org >> More: Much of the run is sold out, and seats are limited through March.

You might want to enter a training program to enhance your skills. Also, consider getting professional help in preparing a brilliant resume. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A pesky health problem should clear up soon. Meanwhile, travel -both for personal as well as for business reasons -is strong in the Aries aspect this week, and well into the next. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Look for Bovines to be on the move this week, whether its traveling for fun or for business. Other moves include workplace adjustments and, for some, relationship changes. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Geminis who have just gone through a hectic period involving job and/or family matters might want to take some well-earned time out to relax and restore those drained energy levels. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A romantic situation seems to have stalled, just when the Moon Child was expecting it to go forward. Could that be a bad case of miscommunication going on. Talk it over openly and honestly. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Showing a genuine interest in something thats important to a friend, family member or colleague could open a communication line that had been pretty much shut down for a while. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Making a potentially life-changing decision takes as much knowledge as you can gather, plus determination and patience. Take your time working it out. Dont let anyone rush you. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You should be back on schedule and heading in the right direction after clearing up a misunderstanding. But there could still be some setbacks. If so, correct them immediately. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A business matter keeps you pretty busy, but try to squeeze in time to be with family as well as close friends. You need the good vibrations you get from people who care for you. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Investing in an attractive prospect (business or personal) with little or no information can be risky. Avoid future problems by getting all the facts before you act. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Someone close to you might have an unexpected reaction to a decision you feel youre prepared to make. Listen to his or her point of view. It could prove to be surprisingly helpful. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Dont give up yet. That once warm, personal relationship that seems to be cooling off fast could recover with some tender, loving care, and who better than you to provide it?

Assume youre in five diamonds and West leads the ace and another spade, which you ruff. Offhand it might seem that you should draw trumps and play the ace and another club. If the clubs are divided 2-2, you make the contract; if theyre divided 3-1, you go down one. But this would be the wrong approach. If you study the matter more closely, it becomes clear that you can make the contract in several cases where the clubs are divided 3-1, provided you take the necessary steps to cater to a 3-1 as well as a 2-2 division. The proper line of play is to draw trumps, cash the A-K of hearts and ruff a heart. Then, instead of playing the ace and another club, you lead a low club from your hand. Observe the effect of this play in the actual deal. When East wins the trick with the queen, he is forced to return a spade or a heart, allowing you to ruff in your hand and discard a club from dummy, making the contract. The outcome would be the same if East had the singleton king or jack. Note that in the cases where West held the KQx or KJx, putting up the king on your low club lead would simply force West rather than East to make a losing return. GIFT CERTIFICATES AVAILABLE!

FILM CAPSULESRun All Night (Liam Neeson, Joel Kinnaman, Ed Harris) Mob boss Sean (Mr. Harris) and his hit man Jimmy (Mr. Neeson) are old friends, but all that changes when Jimmy is forced to kill Seans son (Boyd Holbrook). Its a tense drama with solid action and performances. Rated R.The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 1/2(Dev Patel, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench) With his marriage looming, Sonny (Mr. Patel) tries to open a second hotel while his current guests get into trouble of their own. Its a noble sequel with its heart in the right place, but its nothing special. Rated PG.Focus (Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Gerald McRaney) Con artist Nicky (Mr. Smith) takes an aspiring grifter (Ms. Robbie) under his wing and is surprised he falls for her (even though shes ridiculously hot). Its fun for a while, but you never buy the love story and the plot is disjointed. In other words, it lacks focus. Rated R.Kingsman: The Secret Service 1/2(Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Taron Egerton) A mentor (Mr. Firth) and his protge (Mr. Egerton) from a secret intelligence agency try to stop an Internet billionaire from ruining the world. Director/co-writer Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class) makes the story come vibrantly alive with dynamic action and visual effects. Rated R.Jupiter Ascending (Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne) A housekeeper (Ms. Kunis) learns she owns the Earth but needs the help of a half-man/half wolf (Mr. Tatum) to keep it safe from an intergalactic baddie (Mr. Redmayne). Some of the action and effects are impressive, but the story has too much surplus for its own good. Rated PG-13.Project Almanac (Jonny Weston, Sofia Black-DElia, Sam Lerner) Teenagers find plans for a time machine, build it and travel back in time to have some fun. But there are consequences. Its all preposterous, and the most egregious error of all is that it dares to take itself seriously in the last half hour. Rated PG-13.Still Alice 1/2(Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart) A 50-year-old linguistics professor (Ms. Moore) finds her life radically changed after shes diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimers disease. Its a heartbreaking story, made more palpable by a great performance from Ms. Moore and solid supporting turns from Mr. Baldwin, Ms. Stewart and Kate Bosworth. Rated PG-13.

Dine with us between 5 and 6 p.m. and enjoy a three course LATEST FILMSCinderella Is it worth $10? YesDisneys latest iteration of Cinderella is a live-action, non-musical interpretation of the classic fairy tale that sorely needs a little edge. Heres the biggest problem: Cinderella is boring. Shes a victim, a bystander, an innocent waif uninterested in evolving past naivet. Everything happens to her; shes never a doer who makes her own success. Theres nothing compelling about her. If youre going to use this material for a remake, why not go the way of Angelina Jolies Maleficent and focus on the villain rather than the heroine? Id rather watch Cate Blanchett chew scenery as the Evil Stepmother than endure spineless Cinderellas woe-is-me pouty frown for two hours. This is not to say director Kenneth Branaghs film is a total misfire it works in all the ways it attempts to succeed, lame and PC and PG as it is. You know the story: Ingenue Cinderellas (Lily James) mother (Hayley Atwell) dies, crushing her idyllic existence. Cinderellas father (Ben Chaplin) later marries Lady Tremaine (Ms. Blanchett), who brings her awful daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drizella (Sophie McShera) to live with Cinderella and her father. When Cinderellas father dies, her stepfamily treats her abysmally. One day while riding her noble steed, Cinderella meets a Prince (Richard Madden), and they are mutually smitten. The King (Derek Jacobi), Grand Duke (Stellan Skarsgard) and Captain (Nonso Anozie) expect the Prince to marry for political reasons, so a deal is struck: Invite every maiden in the province to a grand ball, and the Prince will choose his princess then. With the help of a Fairy Godmother (Helena Bonham Carter), Cinderella magically makes it to the ball and dances with the Prince. Its beautiful. It could only happen in a fairy tale. Appropriately, the film has visual appeal to spare. Oscar winners Sandy Powell and Dante Ferretti render a candy-colored feast for the eyes with the costumes and production design, respectively. The visual effects are fine, but not particularly dynamic outside of the Fairy Godmothers shenanigans. This is in part because some of the effects shots dont register to us as visual effects. If the goal of visual effects is to accentuate the story without becoming the story, these succeed admirably. As sugar coated and amiable as it all is, logical questions abound. 1) The Fairy Godmother randomly appears inside Cinderellas house. Where I live, you call the cops as soon as you spot a vagabond on your porch. 2) Why dont the glass slippers disappear along with everything else after midnight? Its the same magic from the same Fairy Godmother, after all. 3) Why doesnt anyone recognize Cinderella in public after the ball? She danced with the Prince in front of the entire province, but everyone puts Lois Lane blinders on when shes right in front of them. To be fair, logic has never had a place in fairy tales. Thats why you also have to blindly accept the love-at-firstsight romance between Cinderella and the Prince. The only real downside to this fake infatuation is that it gives impressionable youngsters the idea that one day theyll meet their true love and instantly fall in love which is about as likely as a Disney princess wanting to start a career so she can be a truly modern woman. Logic, reason, rational thinking and perspective aside, this Cinderella is effectively sweet and should be a box office winner for the Mouse House. It provides the escape we want with a story we know and cherish, and it does the tale justice at a time when many remakes fall flat. >>Richard Madden and Nonso Anozie both starred on HBOs Game of Thrones. Mr. Madden played Robb Stark, and Mr. Anozie played Xaro Daxos. Spoiler: Both met an unpleasant end, with Stark brutally murdered and Daxos locked in a vault by Daenerys.

Dutton. 390 pages. Hardcover, $27.95. Abducted, beated and raped, Dana Nolan is the ninth victim of a serial killer known as Doc Holiday. By strength of wit and will, however, Dana managed to murder the man whose intention was to have his ninth victim die like all the other eight. We meet Dana in the Minneapolis hospital where she has spent much time already trying to recuperate from the physical and psychological trauma. Indeed, she almost perished, and her progress is excruciatingly slow. Her face is a fright mask and her body wears a number 9 inscribed by her torturer. She has had serious wounds attended to, and more operations lie in her future. Brain damage being among her injuries, Dana is far from a smoothly functioning human being. Her memory is greatly impaired, thus her identity must be rebuilt. One of the great strengths of Tami Hoags book is her representation of Danas initial condition and then her desperate fight to put herself back together. Once Dana returns to her mother and stepfathers care in Indiana, her recovery is compromised by other peoples expectations and judgments. She needs rest, quiet, time with herself and an effective course of therapy. Her protective mothers instinctive hovering, suggesting and reminding is overwhelming rather than nourishing. Her selfish stepfather cannot help but signal that he finds the freaky Dana a burden that his political campaign cant tolerate. Dana needs to write herself a set of directions to find her way around the house in which she was raised. Also, her censorship mechanisms are impaired. She will blurt out embarrassing thoughts without having consciously formed them. Whats the mystery? From one perspective, it is whether and how Dana will recover and what recovery will mean. Its clear early on that the posttrauma Dana will never be the same person as the accomplished, sunny television reporter she had become. The primary plot mystery, however, involves relationships among a quartet of high school students going back almost a decade: Dana, her sports hero b philJASONpkjason@comcast.net HOAG

The four prepared to go their separate ways after graduation, but Casey soon vanished without a trace. Casey and Dana had a bit of a spat before Caseys disappearance, though Dana is hard-pressed, unable or unwilling to remember it. What happened to Casey? Is she alive? Had she been another Doc Holiday victim or the prey of a similar predator? Something within Dana needs to get to the bottom of this mystery. In this pursuit, she quickly finds herself reconnected with Tim, who is now a deputy sheriff in town. Upon high school graduation, hed gone off to be a cadet at West Point; its not clear why things didnt work out. Dana also contacts the retired officer who was once in charge of tracking Casey down. This man, in the late stages of cancer, is a nasty wreck whose questions and demands force Dana to fight for those memories she has not yet be able to retrieve. Brooding, reclusive John, who saw the horrors of Iraq and Afghanistan and is now out of work and suffering from a life of ridicule as well as combat injuries, reveals to Dana surprising information about his relationship with Casey. Danas initiative brings to life the near-death investigation of Caseys disappearance. Along the way, Dana discovers much about the friends of her youth that she had not perceived as a nave teenager. Another local rape victim investigation also feeds interest in the nearly dormant case. The action accelerates into a storm of threat and violence. Once again, nosy Dana seems doomed. We learn that Casey is dead and her killer is finally unmasked. However, for all the excitement and suspense connected to the outc ome of the Casey search, it is still the complex, subtly shaded portrait of Dana and her heroic struggle to rebuild her damaged psyche that keeps the reader engaged. Readers will applaud the authors empathy, understanding and mastery of her craft. Ms. Hoag leads a double life in Palm Beach County, where she is also known as a top competitive equestrian in the Olympic discipline of dressage.

Walter, and Schneider are some of the famous glass makers working in Nancy, France, in the late 19th and 20th centuries. A few still are creating quality glass vases and sculptures. Many of the makers used their names and the word Nancy in their marks. Daum and Majorelle worked together to make an early 20th-century type of vase that is easy to recognize and known as caged. Louis Majorelle was a famous furniture designer and decorator. He made many types of metal railings, hardware and exterior trim. He made decorative iron frames that were used by Daum. Mottled glass was blown into the empty spaces in the frame so that the glass was slightly raised between the metal parts. The finished piece looked like the glass was trapped in a cage. A purple and pink Art Deco caged vase was auctioned in November 2014 by James Julia for $1,244. It was signed Majorelle Daum Nancy with the Cross of Lorraine. Look for names with the word Nancy on Art Nouveau and Art Deco glass, especially on large vases. But beware there have been many fakes and copies made since the 1960s. Some even say Galli hoping you will misread the mark. Q: I bought a home with a large complete liquid 1920s soda fountain, dispensers, stools and the rest. Im looking to remove it and sell it, but Im having trouble finding what a complete setup with seven seats is worth. Its made by Liquid. A: Soda fountains were in almost every corner drugstore from the early 1900s to the late 1950s, but its unusual to find one in a home. Soda fountains are sold at auctions, usually sales of advertising. You can contact an auction house. If it is an original old soda This caged glass and iron vase is 9 inches high and is clearly marked by Majorelle and Daum. It sold for $1,244. KOVE L : AN T IQUE S
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 12-18, 2015 C19 fountain, they will sell it for you and even arrange to get it to their auction site. Your Liquid fountain was made by Liquid Carbonics Manufacturing Company in Chicago, Illinois. The company made liquefied carbon dioxide. It test marketed its first soda fountain in 1903 and sold its first iceless soda fountain in 1906. The company name became Liquid Carbonic Corporation in 1926, so your fountain was made between 1906 and 1926. The company merged with General Dynamics in 1958. Q: I have a blue glass mug with a picture of Shirley Temple on it. Her signature is underneath her picture. The mug is 4 inches high. How much is this worth? A: Shirley Temple (1928-2014) was a movie star most famous for her roles as a child star. She made her first movie in 1932. Your mug is part of a breakfast set that included a cobalt blue glass bowl, mug and pitcher. They were made by Hazel Atlas Glass Co. and U.S. Glass Co. from 1934 to 1942 and were given away as Wheaties and Bisquick premiums. Some pieces were decorated with the picture of a very young Shirley, others used a picture of Shirley in her 1936 Captain January costume. Millions of the dishes were made. The mug sells for about $10. Q: I have inherited a Rishell phonograph that was originally purchased between the late 1920s and early 1930s. Its in great condition and still works. I have a few records that work on the machine, too. Does it have any value? A: Your phonograph was made by Rishell Phonograph Co. of Williamsport, Pa. Rishell was in business from about 1916 until at least 1924, but it is not a well-known brand even among collectors. We have only seen floor models by Rishell. A Rishell floor model in working order could sell for $200 to $300. Q: I have a button collection given to me by my husbands grandmother. Some are brass, copper, glass and ceramic. I must have about 800 to 1,000 buttons and no two are the same. These are very old butt ons and in excellent condition. Where can I sell them? A: Button-collecting has been popular since the 19th century. People used to snip the buttons off old clothes and save them for future use, but somewhere along the way button c ollecting turned into a hobby. T he National Button Society was founded in 1938. You can find local button clubs, shows, and contacts on the societys website, www.nationalbuttonsociety.org. The easiest way to sell a large collection might be to go to a button show and talk to the dealers. Old buttons can be worth 5 cents or $500 each. It takes an expert to determine the price. Mixed bottles of buttons often sell at flea markets for $10-$25. Tip: Dont wrap jewelry in a tissue. You may accidentally throw it away. My aunt once threw a tissue-wrapped diamond ring out the car window. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

I am 3 months shy of my 60th birthday and have been a patient of Dr. Anne and her team for many years. She is dedicated to caring for my over all GYN health and skin care needs including the use of ObagiTM products, BotoxTM for forehead lines and JuvedermTM for the deeper lines. About a year ago, Dr. Anne injected ArtefillTM into the most stubborn spots. Most recently, I have had 4 of 5 DermapenTM neck and face treatments and could not be more pleased with the results. My pores are smaller and the wrinkles softened, leaving just healthy, supple, glowing skin...not taunt or tight. At a recent reunion, my Aunt commented that I must have gotten the look young gene! Then, at a community meeting, I saw friends I hadnt seen for a while and received more comments about how good I look. No one knows why I look better...I just do. ~ Alice B.

I absolutely love that show! Tina Y., via emailA: The wonderfully entrancing period drama, which is based on the life of reallife entrepreneur Harold Selfridge, returns for its third season of eight parts beginning at 9 p.m. Sunday, March 29. I spoke with Harry himself, series star Jeremy Piven (who also stars in the big-screen version of Entourage this summer), about the new season, and he is thrilled for fans to see what the show has in store for them. The show itself is continuing to evolve. In the third season, the stakes are raised; there are all these incredible turning-point moments. It just completely takes you by surprise. Thats the way to do it, obviously. And to tell his life was so fascinating. It was beautiful and inspiring and tragic, and all these things. Its been a feast and just a gift to do this. Its also a fascinating journey in terms of how its coming to peoples attention here in the states because were on PBS, and its a very select audience. Overseas, ITV (which airs Mr Selfridge a few months earlier than in the U.S.) is the equivalent of one of our major networks or HBO. They have a lot of ad dollars, and its a monster hit. Its been sold to 165 countries. Thats more than Entourage, Downton Abbey its just staggering. And here we are in my own backyard, and its still kind of catching on. In a way I think its perfect because were going into season three, and the way people watch shows is they binge-watch. So you can binge-watch the first two seasons and then start on season three, which I think is the perfect way to see it. Q: Can you tell me what Mireille Enos has been doing since The Killing ended? Kyle F., via emailA: If Mireille isnt already a household name although she is in my house she soon will be, because the red-haired beauty landed the lead role in Shonda Rimes latest drama pilot called The Catch. The thriller is based on the novel by Kate Atkinson, which is about a woman who is about to get married ... and about to get conned. However, because Shondas leading ladies tend to be strong women who can take care of themselves, thank you very much, our fearless heroine surely will turn the tables on her slippery fiance. Q: Do you have any info on the new American Horror Story season? Gennie F., Madison, WisconsinA: The latest iteration of the toofrightening-for-me dramatic thriller is going to be called American Horror Story: Hotel, and it will feature Lady Gaga in a supporting role. As of this writing, there has been no word on whether Jessica Lange will return. The fifth season will air on FX this October. PIVEN CAROLE SEGAL/AMCMireille Enos as Sarah Linden on The Killing.

Seafood lovers can fill up on grouper, stone crab, shrimp, crawfish and more in a variety of preparations, from crab cakes to chowder. This year event organizers have sourced their selections from providers from Tampa to Miami, mostly to give local restaurants a break. Were so busy this time of year that our local restaurants are just too slammed to do three days, Diana Dohm, festival spokesperson and president of the Kiwanis Club of Marco Island explains. Many of the vendors are also regulars at the annual Everglades Seafood Festival and are happy to return to the area, she adds. Hosted by island Kiwanians and Marco Islands Sunrise and Noontime Rotary clubs, the festival has become as much a music event as a seafood event. The entertainment starts at noon Friday with the Paul Allodi Band, followed by several bands playing s, 0s and s favorites throughout the afternoon and leading up to the Journey/Bon Jovi Tribute Band as the opening night headline act. Saturdays music will be by Joe Marino & All the Kings Men, Deb & the Dynamics and the Trezz Hombres ZZ Top Tribute Band. The Fakahatchee Band takes the stage at noon Sunday, followed by the Greg Miller Band at 2 p.m. Arts and crafts vendors will be on hand, too, and a bounce house, rockclimbing wall, trampoline and slide will give the youngest festivalgoers an outlet for their energy. Festival admission is $8 at the gate, with proceeds distributed among the sponsoring organizations to benefit their charitable efforts throughout the Marco community. The cost of seafood dishes will reflect market prices, with most being around $15 to $20. Beer and wine will be available as well. Hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, March 20-21, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 22. Everything takes place at Veterans Memorial Community Park. Off-site parking with shuttle service is available at several locations on the island.

The premise of the show is that restaurateurs Joe Bastianich and Tim Love want to invest in a restaurant concept that could make them millions. My goal was to show the world that Crave has a unique concept that could work in a restaurant capacity anywhere, Chef Roland says. I wanted the hosts to validate that we can produce delicious food that is beautifully presented and that our concept is in fact investable. Im excited to see how this national exposure helps us position ourselves for the future. Chef Roland started his catering business in 2013 and has won recognition and awards for his work and philanthropy in the community.

The Full Menu: thelocalnaples.com. The Details: My husband and I have been indulging in a newly engaged custom of cocktail hour on Thursday nights. Because the day in question had been a particularly odd, with weird kid details and a head cold that wouldnt quit, I was not in the mood for a mixed drink at a noisy bar. Instead, I pitched the idea that we just do dinner and head home early because no matter how bad Im feeling, Im not going to pass up an extra two hours of babysitting to nurse a mild illness. The Local called my name and lo! the server handed me an early dining menu to justify my desire for fancy food on a weeknight. I selected the pork ragu, which featured a nicely braised chunk of meat and rich tomato broth atop a mound of pillowy homemade gnocchi, all topped with a dollop of ricotta cheese and rosemary. Besides being delicious and totally worth a detour from our usual sports bar hangout, the protein perked me up enough to inquire about a glass of prosecco. I am always up for a meal at The Local, but now I can say its all-natural, locally sourced ingredients can cure what ails you, too. One more thing: Entrees on the early dining menu are priced at $16.95, $21.95 or $26.95, and all of them come with soup/salad and a dessert. I started with my favorite salad ever, a spinach and sesame-soy dressing concoction that contained cashews and fruit, and ended with a mini serving of chocolate mouse, served in a shot glass with a demitasse spoon. There wasnt enough of the later, but thats only my unending appetite for chocolate speaking and is not a judgment about the restaurants hospitality.

VINOSurviving South Beach Back (way back) when I was growing up in Miami, South Beach was a haven for aged retirees who lived in the shabby Art Deco-era hotels along Ocean Drive. As we all know, those days are gone. The retirees are all in heaven, the hotels have been fabulously rehabbed, and the area is crawling with bikini-ed Euro beauties, Latina lovelies and assorted other types. Every February, under two vast white tents on the sand, the South Beach Wine and Food Festival takes place. Its a threeday event that includes, among other starstudded activities, major cooking demonstrations by celebrity chefs, many of which are videotaped for later airing on the Food Network or other channels. There are grand tastings of hundreds of wines at an evening event at the Fountainbleau Hotel, mass wine seminars at several venues around the area, it just goes on and on. But my favorite part of the South Beach festivities happens on the Friday before the main event the private tasting for the wine and spirits trade. This includes distributors, reps and wine journalists, as well as club owners, bartenders, and food and beverage managers from private communities. Unfortunately, it also includes anybody who buys a ticket from the scalpers on the sidewalks around 10th Street. We go every year, to meet up with winemaker friends, make new ones, and discover new brands and wine varietals. Many of the other attendees go to see how much alcohol they can consume before everybody gets kicked out at 4 p.m. You see, the exhibitors are not only wineries, but food purveyors (so theres plenty of snacking), bottlers of designer water (in the Evian booth they were making it snow) and spirits distributors who encourage you to sample their latest vodka, liqueur, or concoction made with high-test alcohol. Scattered throughout the tasting tables are delightful-looking young women wearing pants that absolutely prohibit the circulation of blood below the waist, serving rum drinks in whole coconuts or holding out trays of fruity shooters, which are liberally sampled. So the event is not exactly sedate, and things get progressively more raucous as the afternoon wears on. We, however, are there for serious professional reasons: discovering new wines and telling you about them. Thing is, when you go to a major tasting where perhaps 150-200 wines are being served, and if you sample as widely as you must, the wines you remember are the wines you want to buy. This year, we were able to try most of the samples before things got too crazy. They were not only delicious, but many were great bargains as well. While I was unable to make comprehensive tasting notes, these are the wines Ill be buying and enjoying in the coming months. Chateau Ste. Michelle Indian Wells Chardonnay The winegrowing areas in eastern Washington State are cold and perfect for making lean, zippy chardonnays. This ones a favorite. About $12. Planeta Ros 2013 Ive mentioned in past columns that ros wines are very popular right now, and with flavors like this sample from Sicily offers, they should be. Planeta is a major producer on the island, crafting this full-bodied wine from 50 percent Syrah and 50 percent Nero dAvola. About $13. Matua Sauvignon Blanc You cant go wrong with sauvignon blancs from New Zealands Marlborough region. This example is true to type, with characteristic aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, kiwi and citrus. About $8. Qup Central Coast Syrah While Qup is more known for its higher-end syrahs from the Santa Barbara area, this example is a good entry-level place to start. $16. Fontanafredda Briccotondo Barbera This label is very dependable for highquality wines that go great with food. One of our favorite producers. $14. Andrew Geoffrey Petit Verdot On the higher-quality end is Peter Thompson, who pulls incredible cabernet and other varietals from a spectacularly-sited vineyard on Napa Valleys Diamond Mountain. He named the winery after his two sons, and youd love everything he makes. Around $90. Ch. Haut Condissas Medoc Every Bordeaux lover knows how hard it is to find high quality examples from this region at reasonable prices. This is one.

Green beer before, during and after the big parade.No reservations needed for lunch. St. Patricks Day on Fifth CHEF PROFILELove is the main ingredient in this restaurateurs recipe for successQ: What brought you to Naples? A: The economy in Vermont wasnt great. I visited a friend here and planned to stay a week. While I was here I noticed everything was better here than there. I began to research how to move here and get a job. Q: What did you do and how did you wind up owning a restaurant? A: I was a floral designer by day and a server by night. I worked a few places then connected with Nancy (Christiansen) at Sign of the Vine and learned a lot about food. After helping to open Campiello and promote its catering, I made the decision to go solo. I was very specific. I talked about the menu, allergies, what customers wanted, what they didnt want, linens I opened the first Patrics in 2009. Then the landlord wanted the whole building for a salon. We (Gary and I) had a contract at World Tennis and worked two seasons there before realizing we prefer to do this. Well be in this space a year in May. Q: Who are your main culinary influences? A: Jamie Oliver, who really cares about flavors and food quality; and Ina Garten, who is so homey and inviting. Q: You are open for breakfast and lunch only. Whats the appeal? A: These were the two strongest meals while I was growing up, and now Gary and I are able to enjoy the evening and go out to dinner to support our local nightspots. Q: Your menu includes a lot of Paleo diet dishes. What brought that about? A: I am probably 98 percent Paleo (a diet that consists of lean meats and fish, vegetables, some fruits, seeds, nuts and some oils). We have a huge history of heart disease in my family. Out of four uncles, two were gone before age 60. The others and my father all have had heart surgery. Im the next generation to inherit this, so I dropped weight and do what I need to do to dodge this bullet. I am pretty strict about my diet and I have an active fitness routine. Q: Have the Paleo dishes gained a following among your customers? A: Its selling very well. A lot of people like the Paleo menu. And you can mix and match it with the conventional menu, ordering sweet potato home fries with your omelet if you want. We cater to people who are gluten-free, too. Some cant digest gluten, some have celiac disease and some just want to because its the thing. I just developed a gluten-free slider roll that Chris De Luca is going to use with his Eating Healthy Meal Plan delivery. Well also have them here, and Im creating a gluten-free flour mix so people can do their own baking at home. But we really are all about offering food for everyone, no matter what their choice is for meals. Q: Do you ever crave the more decadent items on your menu? A: My biggest downfall in the kitchen is when I find some really crispy home fries the potatoes and onions are all really brown and crisp. But I know that if I eat what I want to eat from the kitchen I wont feel good. Q: What are some of your most popular items? A: The breakfast burrito because its a meal all in itself one-stop shopping. And the biscuits and gravy are big because we make it all from scratch. I make a roux and a white sauce, cook off the sausage and put it in the white sauce. Theres nothing from a can; its the real deal. Its the same with our corned beef hash. I had the best hash Id ever had in Seattle and Ive tried to re-create it. Ours has corned beef, potatoes, onions and love. Its by far one of the biggest sellers. And it can be made Paleo friendly by changing the white potatoes to sweet potatoes. From the lunch menu, the salmon BLT is very popular. Q: How do you manage to be open seven days a week? A: I was raised a farm boy, the oldest of six (I have five younger sisters). It was a given that I would carry on the farm. I enjoy animals and am a big advocate for them, but cooking is what I love. I come here every day Im usually in just after 5 a.m. and it doesnt feel like work. Theres nothing else Id rather do. Q: You havent been in your present space a year but have already expanded. What now? A: We took a second unit and opened that over Labor Day, which doubled our seating. About two months ago, we decided to consolidate the office and dry storage and are now in the process of putting in an open kitchen/bakery. Gary does pies, cheesecakes and cookies, and I do quiches, muffins and gluten-free stuff so theres a huge need for a space to bake. With an open concept, customers will be able to see us while we do it. Q: If you had to sum it up, what would you say is your cooking philosophy? A: Love what you create. Love your food.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com MARCH 2015 LUXE LIVING 3DESIGNER Q&AWILFREDO EMANUEL makes design fashionableWilfredo Emanuel of Clive Daniel Home is an interior designer with 30 years of experience. In his many travels to Europe working within different cultures, this enterprising, fashion-forward designer has a unique understanding of his clients needs especially when those needs require his expertise in transitional clean lines with a touch of contemporary design. This design philosophy reflects a worldly, sophisticated feel combined with comfort, which may be why he is one of the most awarded designers in Naples. To his clients, Mr. Emanuel is an indispensable resource for all things beautiful and functional far beyond new home models or the interior decorating of existing structures. He admits to loving everything about decorating for Christmas, evidenced by the many Neapolitans who hire him to decorate their homes every year. Mr. Emanuels customers also hire him to do everything from arrange holiday tables to select fabrics, and some even insist he help advise them on what to wear for photo shoots. He is also an expert on jewelry and accessorizing. The marriage of fashion and design something Mr. Emanuel has been pioneering for decades is just now filtering down to sleepy Naples.We sat down with this designer in demand to ask him about interior design and what makes him such a hot commodity on the Naples design scene. Q: You were named Best Dressed Designer by Florida Weekly last year. Tell us about your love of fashion and design? A: It was an honor for me. Having worked with Dior house in the past, I have a good understanding how fashion and furniture work together from color shapes to trends. The furniture world always goes hand to hand with the fashion world and one responds to the other. For me, it is an inspiration every day.

Q: Youve become somewhat famous on Facebook for posting pictures of your daily outfits that match interesting interior design concepts. How did this come about and what has the response been like? A: When it comes to fashion and interior design, the two are always related for me. I try to share with people some different ways to be inspired in the home, or just looking at themselves in the mirror every morning, translating that look to interior design. Every morning when I get dressed, I take a picture of myself and select a picture of my interior design work or another designers work showing the same color coordination, pattern and style similar to my clothes. Its nice how it has become very popular. People ask me about doing this all of the time, and it feels good to help other people in their own design and fashion processes. Q: Whats your favorite home design trend right now? A: My favorite trend is jewel tones such as pink, raspberry, green and especially the gold finishes. Were coming back to the old glam feel. Q: What trends are you glad have gone by the wayside? A: The Tuscany feel. It was too heavy and stayed for too long. Q: If any, what architecture, design or build books or magazines do you read or recommend? A: Architecture Digest always gives you what is happening around the world. Q: If you could have another designer celebrity or local design your house, who would it be? A: Of course, my design partner, Rhett Josey, because besides being a great designer, he is great with selection of textures. There are so many mentors as well lets see for Philippe Starck to do my living areas, for Candice Olson to do my bedrooms and Karim Rashid to do my outdoor living space. Q: What decor would you most like to have in your home?A: I like very minimalist dcor with art pieces, and I love clean whites in different textures all over with a touch of unexpected color. This can be an art piece or just a throw pillow. For me, it is important to get home and be in a white canvas after being creative, creating color and form all day. Being in a streamlined environment is a good way to recharge for the next day.Q: What was the most difficult project or home youve ever done? A: I still remember it like it was yesterday. It was my first moving design of a boat in Orlando a long time ago. Id never done this before, and it was at the beginning of my career. It was a lot to take care of between the weight, moving and size. Everything is important when you design a boat, but thanks to a teacher and logistics, it came out great and was one of my first awards in my early career. Q: Please share any advice you have for a homeowner embarking on new home construction. A: Architecture has changed a lot, and now the clean lines and timeless effect are very important. We are living a more casual life and it should be reflected in our homes. Its important to have vision for the future because our houses are an investment. For example, when I design a model or spec home, its important to be in the neutral and light tones so a new buyer will have the opportunity to visualize themselves living in the house. Q: Whats the most over-the-top luxury space youve ever seen?A: This was a house in the Lakes region, one of the biggest families in Orlando. It was a time capsule of the glam era. I remember a Christmas party there, and in the entrance there were 12 Nutcracker figures, 10 feet tall each. The great, enormous Christmas tree put the icing on that beautiful dcor, and it was spectacular.

6 LUXE LIVING MARCH 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYDark to light, drab to fabA waterfront home on Marco gets the VIP treatment BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhen L uxury Home Solutions builds or remodels a home, its usually something massive that makes the news. Case in point: a home they recently remodeled was one of the biggest sales in Fort Myers and made the newspaper. Then, those homeowners hired LHS to build their dream house in Naples, which will be one of largest and most extravagant homes in the area. LHS goes big and bold, which rings true when they tackle a makeover such as this months full-home renovation. The emphasis of the master bath and kitchen is evident in the before and after pictures. LHS also remodeled the outdoor living space to include a new outdoor kitchen, refinishing of the pool, new travertine pool deck and a new screen enclosure. Including flooring, taller, solid-core doors and trim, we also did new cabinetry throughout with new granite tops, says LHS President Norman Bloxham. New showers in all four bathrooms, new plumbing fixtures, new electrical fixtures and updated paint were also included in the remodel. The waterfront home on Marco Island was in dire need of a facelift after the homeowner wanted to redesign due to many outdated features. The master bathroom was the biggest transformation of the project. The focal point in the master bath was a large circular tub, surrounded by a circular shower, Roman columns and full-mirrored walls, says Mr. Bloxham, who also eliminated curved wall features in both the entry and dining rooms and removed dated overhead planter shelves and recesses in the living room and kitchen. Plus, we removed the old attached island and altered the pool deck, which had pink tile. The oak cabinetry found throughout the home also had to go, but thankfully, the remodel happened while the homeowner was out of town, which Mr. Bloxham says is typical of many of his clients who purchase vacation homes in Southwest Florida. As design questions came up, we proactively used multiple communication vehicles to describe alternative design concepts, product selection, plus daily updates allowing the client to view in real time the progress of the remodel, he says. Being Internet-savvy, the lack of the homeowner not being on site did not delay the project. Mr. Bloxham had a couple of favorite aspects of the makeover wow factors that made the overall remodel special. They were the master bathroom and kitchen, which he believes showcase the biggest design difference from before to after. The kitchen was totally opened up with the removal of the planter shelves, and a large decorative hood element gave the kitchen a strong focal point, he says. The client was so thrilled, her mother even cried and hugged the project manager, Jessie Cueto. Mr. Bloxham writes about homebuilding on his blog, Norms Corner, on the LHS website. His tried-and-true tips for homeowners embarking on a makeover include: Make sure you have a licensed general contractor (GC). Make sure the GC has insurance. Verify there is a warranty on workmanship. Verify the GC has a full design-andbuild team. Ask about value engineering. Check to be sure the GC has proven design/build processes. Check references.

perfect HideawayTheWhen purposeful design meets the Florida lifestyle MARCH 2015 LUXE LIVING 11FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com COVER STORY BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentIN HIDEAWAY BEACH ON THE VERY NORTH TIP OF Marco Island, in a community developed 20 years ago, a pristine beach not easily accessible draws people to its shores. You have to almost wade through Tiger Tail to get to this little piece of paradise overlooking Isle of Capri in one direction and Sand Dollar Spit in another. The homeowners of a quite special condo in this charming spot knew there were restrictive rules that went along with such an ambitious project. Combined with the limited amount of time they had to accomplish the remodel, this was quite the challenge. We are in the business of innovation and invention, and while knowledge, and certainly experience, are important factors, they dont matter without guts. Jenny Provost, K2 Design GroupSEE HIDEAWAY, 12 DOUG THOMPSON / K2 DESIGN GROUP Striking swaths of color married with a massive black-and-white photograph make for a dramatic main room. A banquette dining area is ideal for informal gatherings.
www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY12 LUXE LIVING MARCH 2015 COVER STORYIts all about that sunset, which the open floor plan allows everyone to enjoy. Colorful artwork and accessories pop against the neutral palette in the lounge. Enter Jenny Provost of K2 Design Group, chosen to carry out the massive restructuring. We found Jenny after we purchased the unit, and were just looking at all kinds of ads in books searching for a look that was contemporary and clean, said the homeowners, who asked to not be identified to protect their privacy. We started calling places, but Jenny was by far the most responsive out of everyone. She showed up quickly and immediately suggested getting rid of certain things to open the space and let in light. She is very no-nonsense, and since we are Midwestern people, we sensed that would be a good relationship. She is bold, and we like that, and she understood our taste parameters, what we felt like we wanted. We showed Jenny some magazine pictures we had cut out, and we liked that she listened to us, but also understood the site, so we used her for a complete turnkey approach. Ms. Provost immediately advised the homeowners that logistics and condo association rules would require the changes to take place in two construction periods. We have a great deal of experience working on barrier islands: Marco, Sanibel/Captiva, Siesta Key, Longboat Key, Bal Harbour and others, and that experience has taught us its all in the planning, so we pre-stage these projects by ordering materials in advance so that at least orders wont be what slows us down, Ms. Provost says. There are many other roadblocks that can scuttle the best-laid plans. Remember the Sanibel Causeway fiasco? Building materials had to be taken in by barge. At first glance, the homeowners didnt know what to make of the window situation dated design and thick glass made it hard to enjoy the views. We werent sure how to tackle them, but Jenny came up with very original ideas that function very well and figured out how to give us privacy, yet still allow us to have an open space, one of the homeowners says. We explained how we live and Jenny came up with ideas. Ms. Provost says when removing the sliding doors to bring the balcony into the living space, special attention was paid to making the change appear seamless, like it was always meant to be. Although Ive been the principal designer on hundreds of condos, Im not interested in condo living. However, this particular condo could get me to change my mind, Ms. Provost says. I watched one of the most glorious sunsets Ive ever seen with my clients and caught myself wondering if any units were available. Ms. Provost chose sliding doors for the contractor to install that are impactrated and the edge of the lanai is the exterior wall, leaving no concern for inclement weather. When the clients told me they wanted to be able to use the lanai space as additional interior space, I responded to them that we must make it genuinely incorporated into the interior space and not want it to look like an afterthought, as is common, Ms. Provost says. They gave us carte blanche to create ceiling designs, to add wall treatments and furnishings that were on the same level of style and comfort as the other interior spaces. Stone floors in beach-sand color and motif help the interior and exterior spaces feel connected. Once the doors were removed, Ms. Provost added louvered shutters in warm walnut tones, which added the signature modern nautical feel. The large sliding sh utters provide privacy and feel a little exotic, rather like the way the Japanese and Chinese used to separate living spaces and are a warming element in the modern design, Ms. Provost says. Moreover, they work providing privacy and light control as desired. The homeowners also had to choose a builder. Their several renovations in Chicago, including commercial real estate, prepared them for that. However, not having a relationship with someone locally, as they did in Chicago, they needed someone who has strong local credibility. We used a builder who had done work in the community D. Brown because he had a good relationship with the condo management already, and it takes a while for a builder to establish that kind of relationship, the homeowner says. Josh had a great reputation, was familiar with the rules and has a good relationship with building management. The owners knew they would be absentee homeowners, so they hired Ms. Provost to oversee the builders work HOMEFrom page 11DOUG THOMPSON / K2 DESIGN GROUPA little buffet allows for socializing while cooking.PROVOST

Ms. Provost used technology to keep the homeowners updated with the progress. We also used Jenny for all the interior furnishings, too, as we had no furniture, and she sent design boards so everything was laid out and we would discuss it, and if we wanted to make changes she would come back with a suggestion, the homeowner says. We Skyped over the summer so we could get to work purchasing the materials and getting the unit ready as quickly as possible.Ms. Provost began using the phrase tropical modern years ago, and it fits this condo project. K2 was employing modern design ideas before those ideas became popular, and Ms. Provost says she wasnt too concerned back then as she predicted technology would eventually lead to a more modern aesthetic in our homes. Case in point: The large photo in the living area was planned meticulously. The homeowners love Clyde Butchers black-and-white photos of the Everglades, so they thought it would work very nicely to have something representing Old Florida anchoring the room. Doug Thompson, our beloved architectural photographer, and my daughter, Cee Keegan, ventured out into the Everglades to shoot options for this concept, and Doug is also really an artist when it comes to photos of our local natural environment, Ms. Provost says. He grew up in the company of Clyde Butcher and is close with him today, so this all just came together beautifully. Ms. Provost says these clients love televised sports, so there was a struggle between a great conversation area and another TV area for those game-day parties, which she resolved through art. Ms. Provost had Mr. Thompsons photo printed on a canvas-textured vinyl, which was adhered to panels that bi-fold with concealed hardware. Jenny was also wise regarding our little TV area, where you can eat pizza and not worry, the homeowner says. The practical dining area is a bunkette system, so we can all sit around the big table, and the fabrics she chose work well in a house where people are going to be coming in from the pool or off the beach, achieving a look, but that holds up with that lifestyle. The homeowners said Ms. Provost gave them a look that doesnt have a time stamp on it, to which she responds that she couldnt have received a nicer compliment. Because her clients are making major investments, she believes its her duty and privilege to provide them with a legacy design. Her propensity for getting down to the bones of each renovation is key. She doesnt consider what is in the space at first; rather she sees it with no walls or ceilings, learning what can and cant be moved or altered, and then the design fun begins. My approach to initial conceptual design is to really think it out before sketching, reconsidering all the criteria from the clients, building rules and codes, time frames, preferences; there is so much to bear in mind, Ms. Provost says. More times than not, when we present a plan to a client for the first time, it becomes the final plan, because the thinking is there and it shows. Careful selection of textiles and other surface cladding is important to a lowermaintenance lifestyle, according to Ms. Provost. She has a resource center in a 6,000-square-foot building in Bonita Springs that houses luxurious but durable goods. Yes, you can have both, she says of style and substance. We keep in mind during the selection phase of the project that our clients are in Southwest Florida for the fun, food and beach, not to worry about expensive, fussy materials getting sunscreen on them. Preventing ultraviolet light from direct contact with furniture and furnishings is another way to protect your investment, and for new construction or when doors and windows are changed, I recommend A joyous fish painting brings the tropical modern design theme to the powder room.

In the case of a retrofit, Ms. Provost suggests clear, non-distortion, quality film such as 3Ms Prestige Series and a professional local installer.The homeowners have to have a sense of bravery to undergo such a lengthy and costly remodel something Ms. Provost looks for in a client. She coined the phrase, Fearless design for forward-thinking people to describe her design philosophy. We are in the business of innovation and invention, and while knowledge, and certainly experience, are important factors, they dont matter without guts, Ms. Provost says. One cannot be timid and expect to do great things, so I stick my neck out a lot, but as I look back over K2s first 21 years, Im very proud of the results weve achieved on our projects. I love it when someone sees a photo of ours and they ask, How did you do that? When asked if there is a Jenny Provost signature style, she says no. Its not about me, but there are elements that find their way into each of our projects such as dramatic entryways because first impressions count, something that makes guests stop in their tracks and I love modern design very much, she says. But Im mindful of what the clients in this case pointed out: Southwest Florida is Midwest South, so the clients are embracing more modern design but they insisted, and rightly so, on warmth and comfort.

We begin with this design profile to build a vision, and we create a one-of-a-kind design style to fit the clients design and budget. Both dad and daughter agree that artwork adds a personal touch to the space. Mr. Midnet compares the concept to the perfect black dress not becoming an outfit until earrings, necklace, purse and shoes are added. Accessories and artwork are placed in a space to accentuate and add a personal touch to each room, and every accent piece speaks to someone differently, Ms. Midnet says of the rich accessories sold in the Interiors by Design West showplace. By choosing select pieces to incorporate into a home, not only do they contribute to the overall design aesthetic, but they tell a greater story about the individuals who live there, giving a home its unique personality. For those who come into the store and are starting from scratch, the Midnets invite homeowners to a complimentary consultation, which helps determine a space plan. Once again, it all starts from a design profile from transforming whats in their head, what they are dreaming of, into reality, Mr. Midnet says. A lot of people are more prepared now due to websites like Houzz, where they can look at all kinds of genres to get a head start on a look and feel they gravitate toward. There is one formula that Mr. Midnet credits for his success in creating the dynamic environment they have fostered: He carefully selects design professionals from top educational institutions and trains them in his specific system of design. We have all overachievers with a passion for design, and are very protective of our corporate culture, he says. We also do team designs by collaborating, and I truly believe we have the best design teams in the country, recruiting them out of college and training them in our system. This means a group of people form a vision together, and as a team, we do it all together. Theres a lot of luxury at Design West, but theres also a lot of heart. Mr. Midnet has dedicated his career to his mother, who died of breast cancer when he was very young. On a cocktail napkin at a cancer-cure fundraiser, he got inspired to help and drew what became the Alyce Chair, the first piece in what would become a collection called Furniture for the Cure.

Joseph Flaherty of Wired magazine wrote: Artist Kim Keever is like a hydroponic Jackson Pollock. Instead of a canvas, though, he drizzles paint into a 200-gallon water tank. Mr. Keever is reticent to share the secrets of his process, but says that after the pigments are added to the tank, he has anywhere from five to 20 minutes before the liquids diffuse, leaving 200 gallons of murky brown water in their wake. In the moments where the colors whirl and eddy, Mr. Keever shoots thousands of photos. He lives and works in New York City, and his work is in numerous collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Museum of Modern Art, New York.

DP# 20072 New Year R eportBonita Beach New Construction 26732 Hickory Blvd. Barefoot Beach New Construction NEW LISTINGS 2014 was a record setting yearfrom home sales to tourism. Home sales continue to escalate albeit somewhat slower than preceding years. Year-over-year overall median resale home prices rose 17% in 2012 followed by 18% in 2013, losing a little steam in 2014 at 13%. Breaking down the numbers further: Condos rose 10% and single family homes were up 22%. Prices were up double digits in almost all geographic areas in Collier County. According to NABOR (Naples Area Board of Realtors), inventory levels were hovering just over 4,000 units at years end, about 1/3 the number of units in 2007 or 2008. While the number of sales in 2014 were an eye-popping 9,826 units, those figures were up only 1% (9,723 units) over 2013, highlighting market strength the past 2 years. Lack of inventory is taking its toll and pending sales have declined over the past 4 quarters. The past 2 months, December (2014) and January (2015), were the busiest we can remember in 25 years. The median price in December alone jumped 14%. The median price in January hit $322,000, up year-overyear from $258,000 in January 2014 and $215,000 in January 2013. Thats a more than $100,000 jump in two years. Naples area home prices increased an astonishing 25% year-over-year in January, beating last Januarys increase of 20%. Buyers are looking for new constructionor nearly new. The problem there has been very little new construction in the past 9 years.

Real Estate News 2Tourist Invasion! Collier County saw a record number of tourists in 2014more than ever before. If you spent any time on the local roadways then you already knew that! The good newstourists in 2014 spent a record amountleaving a record impact. In 2014, more than 1.77 million visitors stayed in hotels or vacation rentals in Collier County, a 6.3% increase over 2013 (according to a county consultant firm, Research Data Services, Inc., in Tampa). The economic impact from tourists in 2014 reached $1.8 billionup 12.4% over 2013. Collier County saw significant increases in state sales/tourist taxes on hotel/motel staysup 17%. Naples has become a year round destination. Other factors contributed to the record yeara record number of visitors from overseas, improvement in the national economy, and high satisfaction with past stays in SW Florida. 97 million tourists visited Florida last yeara new record. That is the 4th consecutive year in a row the state hosted a record number of tourists. Heres a look at where visitors to Collier County came from last year, and how their numbers compare to 2013:Florida DomicileFlorida domicile has been defined by the courts as the permanent residence of a person or place to which he (she) intends to return even though he may actually reside elsewhere His home, as distinguished from place to which business or pleasure may temporarily call him. Florida domicile is attractive for a number of reasons. One is that Florida has no state income tax. If you are a Florida domicile you likely avoid state income tax on your investments and wages. Secondly, domicile can also qualify your primary residence as a Florida homestead if you make the appropriate filing with the Property Appraisers office. Your homestead is eligible for an exemption of up to $50,000 in assessed value from property taxes, additional exemptions for widows (widowers), and a cap on annual increase on assessed value for tax purposes equal to the lessor of 3% or change in the consumer price index. Florida domicile also brings Region Visitors Percent Change Florida 625,243 + 1.6 Southeast 113,123 + 7.4 Northeast 334,409 + 9.3 Midwest 284,201 + 7.5 Canada 50,468 + 7.6 Europe 284,828 + 12 U.S. Opportunity Markets* 81,628 + 7.9 Annual 1,773,900 + 6.3protection from creditor claims against homestead, wages, retirement accounts, and annuities which are generally not available in other states or under federal law. These benefits can make establishing Florida domicile very valuable. Establishing domicile is largely a question of intentdoes the person claiming domicile intend to and act like Florida is his or her primary residence? If a dispute arises, the court may consider these factors: the amount of time spent at your Florida resident versus other residences, the state of licensing and registration for your motor vehicles, boats, and voters registration, address used for your mailings and Federal Income Tax return, participation in local Florida based clubs, organizations, or businesses, use of professionals in Florida such as your attorney, physician, accountant, or dentist, and whether or not you have filed with the Property Appraisers office for the Florida homestead tax exemptions. State legislature adopted a statute providing for filing a Declaration of Domicile to benefit people moving to Florida from states that might make a claim to income or other taxes. This can be particularly valuable when Florida residents maintain a home in another state, especially one that is tax aggressive.

There were 163 single family home sales in 2014, up from 151 in 2013. Windover Developments two beachfront projects are close to selling out. Condo sales on Fort Myers Beach also realized significant gains with 330 condos sold in 2014, up about 6% over the 313 condos sold in 2013. Lee CountyNext to NaplesFastest Growth in FloridaIn Lee County, contractors pulled almost 1000 permits in 2014 to build single family homes. Up 16%, but a long way from the 9,747 pulled in 2005. Last year Lee County issued 663 multifamily permits. That is up 84% from 2013. 79 single family permits were pulled in January 2015. In Collier County about 8,600 single family and multifamily permits were pulled in 2014Nowhere near the 44,000 pulled at the height of the boom in 2005. In 2013 Lee Commissioners slashed impact fees that help fund schools, road, and park projects by 80%. This action was taken to jump start the local economy. The current impact fee discounts end March 16th. Lee County Commissioners argue that reduced impact fees had little effect on growth, that growth was imminent, the discount fees were needed to assist growth, and that the discounts should end. Lee County Commissioner Frank Mann says, Lee is growing faster than most other counties in Florida, and Florida is now the fastest growing state in the country. We are clearly out of recession. So if we dont have impact fees to pay for the expanded demands on our roads and parks and classrooms our quality of life is going to go downhill fast.
