www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 COMMENTARY You wont catch us saying CLIMATE CHANGE You can say it a lot of different ways. Changement climatique (French). Cambio Climatito (Spanish). Il cambiamento climatico (Italian). Qhu binhu (Chinese). But how do you say it in English as spoken by the official representatives of the nations third largest state, with 20 million residents and more than 6 percent of the United States population? Like this (repeat after me): CLIMATE CHANGE! As everybody now knows, back in 2013 or so, Gov. Rick Scott forbid his minions in state government, especially in the Department of Environmental Protection, to use the term climate change (and he threw in the term global warming for good measure). Then he denied that he had suggested any such thing when his reality check was discovered a couple of weeks ago. I think its important to pause here and note that the governor did not ask state officials to quit using the word round when describing the planet earth. Let me point out one other fact in his favor, as well: Gov. Scott did not tell his people they couldnt use klimawandel (German) or mudana climtica (Portuguese) or a handful of other exoticinvasive terms, which is why Im expecting them to turn up in a host of email exchanges between the governor and his staff someday soon unless hes figured out how to hide those emails, like he did others in the past. And I would hope in a less clumsy fashion than Hillary hid hers. One wonders what this means for Floridians, and I cant tell you. But I can tell you that I find the governors vocabulary restrictions sort of cute. The man is trying to help us, after all trying to make us feel better about the world and God knows somebody needs to. Besides, Im fairly fed up with the term, just like the governor. Climate change, climate change, climate change, bleh! Who really cares, anyway? Look at it through the governors eyes: Worrying about climate change is like worrying about night, or mortality, or ice cream melting in the sun. Sure, itll happen, so why talk about it? You gotta lick that cone while the lickins good and worry about the melt later. Thats been the governors attitude, an ice cream attitude, about nearly everything. Even the word climate itself bothers me, just as it probably bothers him. Its a heavily overused word that should be dropped from contemporary English like a dead rat. The thing dates back to the Middle Ages, if not farther back than that, for Gods sake. So its just too old. Climate (n.) Late 14c., horizontal zone of the earth, Scottish, from Old French, climat, region, zone of the earth, from Latin clima (genitive climatis), region, slope of the earth, from Greek klima, region, zone, literally an inclination, slope, thus, slope of the earth from equator to pole, from root of klinein, to slope, to lean.You see? The word climate didnt even start to mean weather until about 1600, according to etymologists that was back when Willy-boy Shakespeare was commenting on the weather, too, and Elizabeth I was queen of England, where they spoke plain English, Im told, just like they still do in Florida. Unless theyre told not to speak plain English in Florida by the governor. For never-resting time leads summer on/ to hideous winter and confounds him there, the bard wrote in Sonnet 5. I assume Willy-boy wasnt referring to his queen, because she wasnt confounded by anything, including time or hideous winter. Though the sex to which I belong is considered weak, she said, you will nevertheless find me a rock that bends to no wind. Floridians can understand Shakespeare, all right: hideous winter. Some of them are here where the ice cream is melting because of hideous winter. And they can understand a rock like Gov. Scott, too, a leader who bends to no wind, especially the wind of science, knowledge and demonstrative reality. Science, knowledge and reality are not going to change our governor, or any of his fellow Republicans who insist they will not bend to the now compelling evidence at hand: that CLIMATE CHANGE! is real and the ice cream is melting. Frankly, I think the governor understands the majority of the citizens he represents in Florida better than any politician in recent years. We actually like CLIMATE CHANGE! down here. We want CLIMATE CHANGE! In a lot of cases, thats why we showed up in the first place: for a change of climate. Cant these liberals and whiners who are always complaining about CLIMATE CHANGE! get that? Thats why we bought waterfront houses and built golf courses and fought our way past county plans that restrict development to create more gated communities and more shopping malls and more growth we like CLIMATE CHANGE! We like it when the weather gets hotter and sunnier and brighter. And if I may speak frankly on our behalf, we dont really care if South Beach disappears under the waves, or if most of the coastal regions of Pinellas County vanish into Tampa Bay, or if we lose North Captiva or southern Marco by the middle or second half of the century. Most of us dont live in those fancy coastal communities, anyway, and most of us wont be around when it happens. So who cares? CLIMATE CHANGE!, Jack. If you dont say it, you cant see it. And if you cant see it, you wont face it. Thats how we do things in the Sunshine State. i i e h f l w roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com Top-rated Barron Collier School District 5 minutes to beaches 8 minutes to downtown 2 minutes to dining & shopping .

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 OPINION rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly The return of the Clinton scandalsThe grim forced march to a Hillary Clinton coronation just got a little grimmer. The Hillary email scandal on top of the revelation of continuing foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation while she was secretary of state is a nice reminder for Democrats about what they are signing up for. The Clinton Restoration will require routinely defending the indefensible. It will require recalibrating all legal and ethical standards to suit the personal and financial interests of the Clintons. It will require a willingness to use these phrases with a shameless abandon: old news, everybody does it and not technically illegal. Usually the advantage of having been around national politics forever is that there are no surprises lurking in the background. But what should be the most vetted couple in the world always needs just a little more vetting. The Clintons come from the Frank Underwood school of politics. What unites Bills roguish charm and Hillarys relentless determination is an eye for the main chance, with adherence to the rules optional. Hillary Clintons self-serving email arrangement is not the worst example, but it is textbook. Pretty much anyone in government knew that if you used your private account for official business, you had to copy your government account for recordkeeping purposes. But Hillary didnt even have a government account. For this to have been an innocent oversight, wed have to believe that Hillary intimately familiar with the workings of government since at least 1979, when Bill became governor of Arkansas, and with the federal government since at least 1993 didnt know how government email worked. And that she happened to set up her own private email account with a server in her own house, registered under a pseudonym, in a fit of technological absent-mindedness. As The Associated Press notes, homemade servers are inferior to professional facilities that provide monitoring for viruses or hacking attempts, regulated temperatures, off-site backups, generators in case of power outages, fire-suppression systems and redundant communications lines. All of these were mere details compared with the one overwhelming advantage of her own server that clearly trumped every other consideration: impressive control over limiting access to her message archives, in the words of the AP. Recently, Clinton turned over to the State Department 55,000 pages of emails, and now she says she wants them released. But it is her flunkies who decided what to give the department. This is transparency Clinton-style. The defense from Clinton world has been that everyone conducts official business on private email, so whats the big deal? But her predecessor, Condoleezza Rice, and her successor, John Kerry, both managed to use government accounts. The legal debate is now whether she merely violated the spirit of the law or actually broke it, the perpetual question with the Clintons. If Democrats have liked what theyve seen from Hillary the past couple of weeks, they should relish the prospect of the next two years, when any revelation can instantly put them back in Clinton scandal-defense mode. This is the future they are choosing, apparently without even bothering to consider an alternative with less baggage or higher standards. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.In Selma, memories of Bloody Sunday spur action todayFifty years have passed since Bloody Sunday, that seminal event in United States civil-rights history when AfricanAmericans and their allies attempted to march from Selma to Montgomery, Ala., demanding the right to vote. As soon as they crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, they were violently attacked by the Alabama State Police, beaten with nightsticks and electric cattle prods, set upon by police dogs and tear-gassed. They were chased off the bridge, all the way back to Selmas Brown Chapel A.M.E. Church, where the march began. News and images of the extreme and unprovoked police violence, in contrast to the conduct of the 600 marchers, who practiced disciplined nonviolence, spread across the globe. Within months, President Lyndon Johnson would sign the 1965 Voting Rights Act, responding to the public outrage and to the pressure applied by a skillfully organized mass movement. The march that would become known as Bloody Sunday was organized in response to a killing by the police of a young man. That history, and how it relates to today, was recounted last Sunday in historic Brown Chapel. The sanctuary was filled to capacity with civil-rights icons, Obama administration Cabinet secretaries and members of Congress. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder spoke, making a connection to the spate of high-profile police killings of unarmed young black men today. This commemoration happened just days after the Justice Department released its scathing report on systemic racism in the police departments of Ferguson, Mo., and surrounding municipalities. Spurred by the murder of Jimmie Lee Jackson, an unarmed young black male, Holder said from the podium. He paused and then repeated: an unarmed young black male. And then again: an unarmed young black male. He intoned that phrase three times, looking out over a crowd that included his own teenage son, Eric Holder III, as well as his probable successor, Loretta Lynch, who will be the first African-American woman to be attorney general (if and when the Senate confirms her nomination). An earlier movement began, and citizens began a march from Selma to Montgomery, across a bridge that was named for a former Alabama senator, Confederate general and grand wizard in the Ku Klux Klan. He was talking about Edmund Pettus. On Saturday, March 7, President Barack Obama spoke at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Estimates put the crowd gathered in Selma that weekend as high as 80,000 people. Special invited guests included the parents of Michael Brown, the unarmed African-American teenager shot and killed last August by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson. I asked Browns mother, Lesley McSpadden, what she thought should happen in Ferguson. She was unequivocal: Being honest, I dont think there should be a Ferguson Police Department anymore. Sherrilyn Ifill, president and director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, added: Its not clear to me that this town of 21,000 people needs its own police department. There are 90 jurisdictions in St. Louis County. We need to begin to look at some regional policing issues, so that we can get some quality control. You cannot get your hands around all of those tiny jurisdictions. Since the DOJ report came out, many Ferguson officials have been forced out, including two police officers, a court clerk, a municipal judge and, most recently, Police Chief Thomas Jackson. The weekend in Selma, the 50th-anniversary commemoration, was a remarkable look back at living history, with many of the surviving participants there, still speaking, still marching, still organizing. It was also a moment to remember the martyrs of the civil-rights movement not only Martin Luther King Jr., who was represented by his son Martin, who spoke at Brown Chapel, as well as by his daughter Rev. Bernice King, but also the lesser-known martyrs. Congressman John Lewis, who led the march 50 years ago, opened his Saturday remarks at the foot of the bridge by saying: We, as a nation, have a great deal to be thankful for. Jimmie Lee Jackson Jimmie Lee Jackson, whose death inspired the Selma march, along with so many others, did not make it to see this day. Viola Liuzzo, a mother of five, Jonathan Daniels, an Episcopalian seminarian, and James Reeb, a Unitarian minister these three, all white, were killed in or near Selma, along with many others, for supporting the struggle for voting rights. As I interviewed people on the anniversary march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, their names were recalled with reverence. Most recent martyrs also were remembered. Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, Michael Brown. Lesley McSpadden, surrounded by a sea of people waiting for President Obamas arrival at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge, eloquently summarized both the spirit of the day and the sadness of her loss, saying, My son would have been able to vote had he still been alive. The Bloody Sunday 50th anniversary commemoration was massive, with participation far exceeding expectations. The movements for racial justice, voting rights and against police brutality are coalescing, bringing together past and present to shape a new future.

I blame it on the final push of tourist season, one that has been touted as the greatest ever and has left many of us physically and emotionally exhausted. Were tired, cranky and dreaming of our summer vacations with increasing urgency. (For the record, this is the second iteration of this column Ive written, having scrapped the first because I felt at risk of becoming known as Florida Weeklys eternal grump.) Luckily, this past weekend gave me the cheer I needed. It came on Saturday afternoon in the form of my daughters fifth birthday party. If you ever find yourself in need of a pick-me-up, find a pack of partying preschoolers to divert you for a few hours. The energy, enthusiasm and good cheer they have just being together can really distract us from the endless loop of chores that face even the best and most interesting families. We started the day at about 10 a.m. to pick up a few odds and ends for the party and honestly, this trip did not bode well for the afternoon. Our kids were ready for some fun, and being dragged around town for two hours seemed like the worlds worst set up, particularly when we made a stop at Target and didnt have time to window shop in the toy aisle. My older son is a boy of few needs; he doesnt ask a lot of us, particularly when we are out running errands, but a stop at Target REQUIRES a few minutes in the Lego section. It is truly the worlds greatest injustice when he is deprived of this simple pleasure and on Saturday, he wouldnt stand for it. Rather than whine and cry his way through our errand, however, he showed us hes not the small child I often mistake him to be (I know, mothers). Instead, while his father and I were deliberating over whether we needed to buy an extra cooler, he walked over to the toy aisle himself and spent a few happy minutes deliberating over his next Lego purchase in peace. I left the store realizing I have an actual big kid who deserves a little more trust and independence, and I hope I will be happy to give it to him in the future. Our sense of accomplishment didnt last for long, however, because in the time between leaving Target and stopping at Grandpas house for a cooler because we had decided not to purchase an extra one, I lost my purse. We still had cake to pick up and a party to set up, and I had misplaced everything necessary to get that done. I called my dad (no purse), called Target (no response), called Target again (no response again) and then drove back to the store, all the way across town, away from the party site, to inquire at customer service if anyone had turned in a comically large handbag from a cart. No, they said, but I could check the carts. So after wedging myself between the stacks of carts and inspecting each of them, I was close to tears. We had to go. I was confident someone was going to town on my credit cards, but we had 12 little guests and their parents on their way to Adrenaline Naples to deal with first. In a last ditch effort to reclaim both my belongings and my sanity, I downloaded Find My iPhone on my husbands device and sounded the alert, knowing that I had silenced the volume to spare us all the torture of my daughters kitten apps she enjoys in the car. Luckily, my dad found the purse and would be bringing it to the party. This brings us to the final obstacle. No one, not even us, could find the gym for the party. I had the wrong address, had given all the guests the wrong address, and still did not have my phone to contact people with the correct address once we found it. Eventually, everyone made it to the right place, and after I got over feeling like a terrible hostess, I started to relax and enjoy the fun. We spent the next two hours watching the kids wear themselves out on trampolines, bounce houses, obstacle courses and more, all under the guidance of fun and vigilant coaches who kept everyone safe and happy. Parents got to watch as our little ones conquered some fears under their guidance, and I also had the pleasure of watching my husbands inner 8-year-old come out to play. The party was really what we all needed to lift our spirits and appreciate each other, and also to remember that we deal with the short-lived frustrations so we can come back around to creating great memories with each other. At the end, we took our exhausted and happy children home to a house that had not been ransacked by manic preschoolers for an afternoon of quiet playtime, with the satisfaction known to all parents of small children that they would sleep well that night. Lindsey Nesmith is planning to return to Adrenaline Naples for her own birthday and wants the bounce house to herself. No adults allowed. p m a t t b lindseyNESMITHlnesmith@floridaweekly.com

Its fun. I love the people I work with. Brett Hresko on Fort Myers Beach One story about college? Shit. There are too many. I mean East Lansing every night you got a story. But all right, one night I had one roommate, right? So he fights this kid from down the road because hes a hockey player and he has all this little man syndrome. It was a great night. He beat the shit out of this kid randomly out of nowhere. And I dont know what happened, I drank too much that night but he had a Viking hat on like the rest of the night. And he walked around like this flexing at everyone the rest of the night. And thats probably my favorite night of college so far. Nicolas Lebid in downtown Fort Myers My mom is from Mariupol in the Crimea and my father was right next door, like 30 miles away from her area, where theyre doing the fighting right now and the people are being killed. They were basically blackballed because they were anti-communist. They had to escape out of Russia. In 1940-41 they left as a group of Cossaks and then they traveled all over. My dad and my mom were able to go ahead and Americans were able to get them out of there in 1947 and they went to Germany and took an American ship, General Sturgis was the name of the ship, it took them to Venezuela. And right after that, on March 7, 1948, I was born.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 NEWS A13 Community forum about airport noise issues set for March 24 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Naples Airport Authority wants input about airport noise issues and invites the public to share ideas during a community forum and open house. Airport authority staff and members of the Noise Compatibility Committee will be on hand to share information and solicit suggestions from the public from 5:30-7 p.m. Tuesday, March 24, in the commercial airline terminal at Naples Municipal Airport (south end of the airport off North Road). The Noise Compatibility Committee is a volunteer advisory group of nine citizens from all parts of the community that studies and makes recommendations to the airport authority on noise compatibility measures. Naples Municipal Airport has earned a national reputation for innovative and effective noise-control techniques, but we know we can do more, Donna Messer, a member of the airport authority board of commissioners and the boards liaison to the Noise Compatibility Committee, says. We are working diligently to do all that is possible to minimize noise and are actively looking for new ideas for mitigating airport noise. We hope lots of people will come to share their thoughts with us and learn more about the airport. Richard Mellon chairs the Noise Compatibility Committee and shares Ms. Messers views. We are eager to work with our neighbors to alleviate their concerns about aircraft-generated noise, he says. In 2012, the airport authority and the Noise Compatibility Committee launched the Please Fly Safe Fly Quiet campaign to encourage pilots and aircraft operators to do all they can to minimize aircraft noise. The campaign encourages pilots to observe the airports recommended 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. aircraft curfew, as well as to follow recommendations such as using the full runway length for takeoffs and landings, observing keep-it-high landing procedures and quieter departure techniques, adhering to preferred flight paths and using idle reverse thrust. Naples Municipal Airport is home to fire/rescue services, mosquito control, the Collier County Sheriffs Aviation Unit and other community services as well as flight schools, air charter operators, car rental agencies and corporate aviation and nonaviation businesses. Opened in 1943, the certificated air-carrier airport occupies a square mile bordered by commercial and residential development, just minutes from downtown Naples. During the 2013-14 fiscal year, the airport accommodated 95,120 takeoffs and landings. All funds used for the airports operation, maintenance and improvements are generated from activities at the airport or from federal and state grants; the airport receives no property tax dollars. The Florida Department of Transportation values the airports economic impact to the community at $283.5 million annually.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 A23 NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATEAnatomy class in courtThis will be upsetting, cautioned Justice Robert Graesser, addressing jurors in February in the Edmonton, Alberta, murder trial of Brad Barton. At issue was the cause of the victims having bled to death from her genitals, and the judge, ruling that jurors would benefit by inspecting the actual wound, admitted the vagina itself (not a photograph) into evidence. The organ had been removed for autopsy and preserved, and the chief medical examiner donned rubber gloves and pointed out to jurors how clean the wound was (suggesting a sharp object), rather than the rougher, scraping wound that would have been created in other ways, such as by impalement. News you can useResearchers from Cornell University, inspired by the book World War Z, recently computer-simulated the spread of a zombie apocalypse and now advise the anxiety-prone to head for higher ground if infections break out, recommending Glacier National Park in Montana or, even better, Alaska. Using differential equations and lattice-based models, the statisticians demonstrated that infections would slow dramatically as fewer people became available to bite (but that, ultimately, were all doomed). The state most quickly wiped out? New Jersey.Legislators war on science Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore told a radio audience in February that she would soon introduce a bill reforming end-of-life procedures for terminally ill cancer patients, such as administering baking soda intravenously to flush out the cancer fungus. Before her election in 2013, she was CEO of Always There Personal Care of Nevada (which she describes as being in the health-care industry). (Bonus: Fiore blames her accountant for the companys reported $1 million in IRS tax liens; the accountant is her ex-husband.) In February, Idaho state Rep. Vito Barbieri, at a hearing on a proposed bill to ban doctors from prescribing abortion-inducing medications via remote telecommunication, asked expert witness Dr. Julie Madsen about one alternative he had in mind: Couldnt a woman just swallow a small camera, he asked, and then have doctors conduct a remote gynecological exam on her? Dr. Madsen quickly reminded Rep. Barbieri that swallowed things do not end up in that part of a womans body. InexplicableThe international sportswear retailer Bjorn Borg (namesake of the Swedish tennis player) created a promotional video game (now also sold separately) that encourages not mayhem and murder, but the vanquishing of ones opponents with love and lovingly stripping them down so that they can be outfitted in Bjorn Borg fashions. Said a company official, a players mission is to liberate haters by undressing them with your love guns and (then to) dress them in Bjorn Borg clothing. (The game also features teddy bear smoke grenades and a shirtless man resembling Vladimir Putin astride a bear.) Breaking bad Mark Rothwell made the news in Portland, Ore., in March 2010 when he prevented a bank robbery (and rescued the terrified Chase teller) by jumping the thief, knocking his gun away and holding him until police arrived. He was later awarded a coveted Portland police Civilian Medal for Heroism. However, on Feb. 19, 2015, according to an arrest report, Rothwell himself pulled a gun and robbed the Albina Community Bank in Portland, making off with $15,700. For Arthur Mondella, 57, a successful maraschino cherry supplier in Brooklyn, N.Y., the inspection by the district attorneys office in February was to be routine, concerning possible pollution of local waters from discharges of cherry syrup. Mondella was cooperative until the investigator discovered odd shelving attached to a wall with magnets, revealing a secret room, and then the smell of marijuana at which point Mondella calmly left the room and shot himself in the head. Ultimately, police found that the 75-year-old company was merely a side business to Mondellas substantial marijuana-growing operation in the basement.Big crime Morrison Wilson, 58, was convicted of assault in Belfast (Northern Ireland) Magistrates Court in February for using his admittedly big belly to bounce an aggressive neighbor lady out of his garden in a dispute. The lady was injured as she fell backward. In a March skirmish over a handicappedparking space at a Walmart in Greenfield, Wis., Ms. Kezia Perkins, 32, was charged with assaulting a 71-year-old woman by, said a witness, chest-butt(ing) her, knocking her to the ground. Said Perkins, Its not my fault (she) bounced off my big (chest). (The euphemism chest was substituted by WITI-TV of Milwaukee.)Our next delicate generation Several University of Iowa students requested, and received, special exceptions from or assistance with classwork, including exams, after complaining of stress and a loss of focus caused by the appearance of a Ku Klux Klan statue on campus in December. As alleged de-facto policy at Avalon Elementary School in Orlando, officials last year prohibited toilet-flushing during the statewide Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. It was thought, an official said, that the whooshing water sounds from nearby bathrooms would disturb the students (and send their scores, according to an Orlando Sentinel reporter, spiraling down the drain).

In fact, 50 percent of retirees say their old life with blaring alarm clocks and career pressure was better than retirement, and the divorce rate is rising among baby boomer retirees even as its falling for all other age groups. Most people focus on acquiring enough money to allow them to retire comfortably and on deciding where they want to live. They dont think about three fundamental aspects of a happy retirement that show up right after the newness wears off. Find out what those three things are when relationship coach and retirement specialist Marianne Oehser presents Retire Happy: Three keys for a successful retirement (and money isnt one of them). Ms. Oehser well present her program at 2 p.m. Thursday, March 26, at Clive Daniel Home, 2777 Tamiami Trail N. Although attendance is free, reservations are required. Call 434-9900. Pave the way to a happy retirement a week for shoppers, the work for the volunteers who run the operation extends far beyond those hours of business.

The new Vi at Bentley Village Thrift Shop is in the maintenance building on the east side of the 156-acre campus. The store and the communitys woodshop were relocated as a part of a $70 million redevelopment project that includes a state-of-the-art sales center, 72 new independent living apartments and two new clubhouses.

Sitting by her side and offering support is her mentor, Rae Chamberlain, of Marco. The next sentence is Pick up the socks, she tells Celine. Remember what we learned today and how to get the K sound. With that prompting, the youngster with multicolored beads adorning her neat plaits spells every word correctly. A 1,000-watt smile spreads across her face when her mentor exclaims, Absolutely perfect! You get a star. Similar after-school scenes play out elsewhere in the Manatee Elementary School classroom as part of the Y Reads program of the Greater Marco Family YMCA. A literacy improvement program for children in kindergarten through third grade, Y Reads is a partnership between the Florida Alliance of YMCAs, the states Department of Education, the Volunteer Florida Foundation and participating schools, parents and community members. Trained mentors, under the supervision of a full-time coordinator, teach the program, with each childs progress carefully monitored. In Collier County, Parkside and Avalon elementary schools in East Naples have joined Manatee Elementary as Y Reads sites this school year. Daisy Galarza coordinates the program for the Marco Y and says the addition of two schools has created a dire need for at least 12 more mentors to serve the 137 youths in the program and enable a 12-student waiting list to be eliminated. This is a program thats driven by volunteers and all we ask is that you have the calling, that its in your heart, Ms. Galarza says. If its in your heart, the rest falls into place. Y Reads regulations call for a ratio of one mentor for a maximum of three students, but a ratio of one-to-two or one-to-one would be preferable, she says. We still have to see the kids even though we dont have enough volunteers, she adds. So we urge everyone who is willing and able to come and give us a hand. Mentors must be at least 21 years old. A background in education is not required. To take part, an application must be submitted for the Y and the Collier County school district for approval. Successful applicants also have to be fingerprinted. Mentors must be able to commit to two hours at a time. If they can commit to two days a week, it would be very helpful. But if they can commit to only one day, thats OK, Ms. Galarza says. During her five years as a Y Reads mentor, Ms. Chamberlain, a retired federal judge, has seen the difference the assistance can make for young students. This is a fabulous program, she says. Children who are having difficulty can get a step up in how to read better, in how to blend consonants to figure out words. When you see a child go from not being able to read the alphabet at all or even recognize a letter, become someone who is above grade level in reading, it warms your heart, she says. Ms. Chamberlain especially encourages men to consider becoming mentors because boys in the program seem to appreciate interacting with an adult male in that setting. It is only by reading that a child can succeed in life, she believes. Parents of many of the children either do not speak English well or are so busy working that they do not have time to read to their children or to listen to their children read out loud, she says. When a child reads to us, he or she is so proud. At this age, they are sponges and are eager to learn. This wont last long, so the Y Reads program is essential. Second grader Saul Castillo has been with the program since kindergarten and says it has helped immensely with his schoolwork. Its also turned him into a reading enthusiast. Sometimes, when I get mixed up with some of the words, the program has them and I practice. And when I practice with the program, I get better at reading, he says. Sauls mother, Erica Adame, loves the results for her son. Its benefitted my son, by far, she says. Its really made a difference. Assessments such as Sauls and his mothers are music to Ms. Galarzas ears. I would like everyone to know that we are a unique program and that we are making a difference, she said. I know were making a difference. For more information about Y Reads and becoming a mentor, call Ms. Galarza at 394-9622, ext. 275, or email yreads@ marcoislandymca.org. Second grader Saul Castillo is proud of his progress thanks to the Y Reads programs hes been involved in for three years.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 NEWS A27 First Book celebrates milestone in giving books to Collier kidsFirst Book-Collier County has distributed more than 500,000 new books to pre-K Head Start children as well as kindergarten, firstand second-grade students in Title 1 schools across Collier County since the nonprofit organization was founded in 2005. Each month throughout the school year, each child in the FBCC program receives a new book from FBCC. Classroom teachers plan lessons around the books, and then the children get to take their books home to keep, treasure and share with their families, explains Joanne Wyss, co-founder and board chair. This year, FBCC will distribute approximately 77,000 books to nearly 7,000 students in 392 classrooms. Kamela Patton, superintendent of Collier County Public Schools, calls First Book a major force in our community to increase literacy for young children who need this help the most. Research shows that children of lowincome families start pre-school with onefourth the vocabulary of their more affluent peers. With books from FBCC, children can develop their reading skills and build their home libraries. Family reading time has become a new and cherished tradition. FBCC is able to purchase top quality books at deep discounts through the national First Book marketplace. The local effort depends on private donations to finance the purchase and distribution of books. A $25 donation equates to books for one child for the school year; a gift of $500 provides books for an entire class for the school year. FBCC is a fund of the Community Foundation of Collier County. For more information or to make a donation, visit firstbookcolliercounty.org.

Documentary decries treatment of Muslim womenChabad of Naples presents a screening of the awardwinning documentary Honor Diaries at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 24. This film has been acclaimed throughout the world as an unchallenged clarification of the treatment of women in Muslim society. According to a press release from Chabad of Naples, the movie features nine courageous womens rights advocates with roots in Muslim-majority societies. These women, who have witnessed firsthand the hardships women endure, are profiled in their efforts to affect change, both in their communities and beyond. Freedom of movement, the right to education, forced marriage and female genital mutilation are some of the systematic abuses explored in depth. The film gives a platform to an exclusively female voice and seeks to expose the paralyzing political correctness that prevents many from identifying, understanding and addressing this international human rights disaster. More than a movie, the press release continues, Honor Diaries is a movement meant to inspire viewers to learn more about issues facing women in Muslim-majority societies, and to act for change. Following the local screening, Raheel Raza, a Muslim Canadian journalist and one of the women featured in the film, will lead a discussion with the audience. Chabad Naples is at 1789 Mandarin Road. Tickets for $10 are available by emailing email@example.com.

FMFF to screen Food Chains at the Alliance for the Arts The Fort Myers Film Festival presents a screening of the independent documentary film Food Chains at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 28, in the Foulds Theatre at the Alliance for the Arts. A questionand-answer session with members of the Coalition of Immokalee workers, including Santiago Perez, will follow the film. The narrative of the film focuses on a highly lauded group of tomato pickers from Southern Florida the Coalition of Immokalee Workers or CIW who are revolutionizing farm labor. Their story is one of hope and promise for the triumph of morality over corporate greed to ensure a dignified life for farm workers and a more humane, transparent food chain. The films executive producers include Eva Longoria and Eric Schlosser. There is more interest in food these days than ever, yet there is very little interest in the hands that pick it. Farmworkers, the foundation of the fresh food industry, are routinely abused and robbed of wages. In extreme cases they can be beaten, sexually harassed or even enslaved all within the borders of the United States. Food Chains reveals the human cost in our food supply and the complicity of large buyers of produce like fast food and supermarkets. Seating is open and there is a $5 suggested donation at the door. The Fort Myers Film Festival runs March 25-29 with screenings at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall, Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center, Regal Cinemas Bell Tower and Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. More information is available at ArtInLee.org or fortmyersfilmfestival.com.
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA36 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 UF study: Feast-and-famine diet could extend life THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA Think of it as interval training for the dinner table. University of Florida health researchers have found that putting people on a feast-or-famine diet might mimic some of the benefits of fasting, and that adding antioxidant supplements could counteract those benefits. Fasting has been shown in mice to extend lifespan and to improve agerelated diseases. But fasting every day, which could entail skipping meals or simply reducing overall caloric intake, can be hard to maintain. People dont want to just undereat for their whole lives, says Martin Wegman, an M.D.-Ph.D. student at the UF College of Medicine and co-author of the paper recently published in the journal Rejuvenation Research. We started thinking about the concept of intermittent fasting. Michael Guo, a UF M.D.-Ph.D. student who is pursuing the Ph.D. portion of the program in genetics at Harvard Medical School, says the group measured the participants changes in weight, blood pressure, heart rate, glucose levels, cholesterol, markers of inflammation and genes involved in protective cell responses over 10 weeks. We found that intermittent fasting caused a slight increase to SIRT3, a well-known gene that promotes longevity and is involved in protective cell responses, Mr. Guo reports. The SIRT3 gene encodes a protein also called SIRT3, which belongs to a class of proteins called sirtuins. When increased in mice, sirtuins can extend their lifespans, Mr. Guo says. Researchers think proteins such as SIRT3 are activated by oxidative stress, which is triggered when there are more free radicals produced in the body than the body can neutralize with antioxidants. However, small levels of free radicals can be beneficial. When the body undergoes stress which happens during fasting small levels of oxidative stress can trigger protective pathways, Mr. Guo says. The hypothesis is that if the body is intermittently exposed to low levels of oxidative stress, it can build a better response to it, Mr. Wegman says. The researchers found that the intermittent fasting decreased insulin levels in the participants, which means the diet could have an antidiabetic effect as well. The group recruited 24 study participants in the double-blinded, randomized clinical trial. During a threeweek period, the participants alternated one day of eating 25 percent of their daily caloric intake with one day of eating 175 percent of their daily caloric intake. For the average mans diet, a male participant would have eaten 650 calories on the fasting days and 4,550 calories on the feasting days. To test antioxidant supplements, the participants repeated the diet but also included vitamins C and E. At the end of the three weeks, the researchers tested the same health parameters. They found that the beneficial sirtuin proteins such as SIRT3 and another, SIRT1, tended to increase as a result of the diet. However, when antioxidants were supplemented on top of the diet, some of these increases disappeared. This is in line with some research that indicates flooding the system with supplemental antioxidants could counteract the effects of fasting or exercise, according to Christiaan Leeuwenburgh, Ph.D., co-author of the paper and chief of the division of biology of aging in the department of aging and geriatric research at UF. You need some pain, some inflammation, some oxidative stress for some regeneration or repair, Mr. Leeuwenburgh says. These young investigators were intrigued by the question of whether some antioxidants could blunt the healthy effects of normal fasting. On their fasting days, study participants ate foods such as roast beef and gravy, mashed potatoes, Oreo cookies and orange sherbet but they ate only one meal. On the feasting days, they ate bagels with cream cheese, oatmeal sweetened with honey and raisins, turkey sandwiches, applesauce, spaghetti with chicken, yogurt, soda and lemon pound cake, Snickers bars and vanilla ice cream. Most of the participants found that fasting was easier than the feasting day, which was a little bit surprising to me, Mr. Guo says. On the feasting days, we had some trouble giving them enough calories. Future studies should examine a larger cohort of participants and should include studying a larger number of genes in the participants as well as examining muscle and fat tissue.

Last week, we added to our record in fighting cancer, earning national accreditation with commendation from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. The independent reviewing organization awarded NCH Silver status and rated us Excellent in six of seven categories which places us among the top 10 percent in the nation. To earn voluntary accreditation, a cancer program must meet or exceed 34 Commission on Cancer quality care standards, be evaluated every three years through a survey process and maintain levels of excellence in the delivery of comprehensive patientcentered care. Three-year accreditation with commendation is only awarded to a facility that exceeds standard requirements at the time of its triennial survey. As a Commission on Cancer-accredited center, NCH takes a multidisciplinary approach to treating cancer as a complex group of diseases that requires consultation among surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, diagnostic radiologists, pathologists and other specialists. This multidisciplinary partnership results in improved patient care. Our team, led by Drs. Chaundre Cross, Joel Grossman, Tim Kerwin, Sam Tunkle, Dan Morris and colleagues from 21st Century Oncology and Florida Cancer Specialists, includes nurses from our inpatient oncology unit, outpatient infusion unit, social service, dietary, palliative care, pathology, radiology, surgical specialties and others. Barbara OHara, manager of our cancer registry, keeps everyone organized and also supervises the analytics that track patient progress. The American College of Surgeons accreditation program provides the framework for NCH to improve our quality of patient care through various programs that focus on the full spectrum of cancer care, including prevention, early diagnosis, cancer staging, optimal treatment, rehabilitation, lifelong follow-up for recurrent disease and end-of-life care. Patients of American College of Surgeons-accredited facilities also have access to information about clinical trials and new treatments, genetic counseling and services including psycho-social support, a patient navigation process and a survivorship care plan that documents each patients care and seeks to improve cancer survivors quality of life. NCH maintains a cancer registry and contributes data to the National Cancer Data Base, a joint program of the American College of Surgeons and American Cancer Society. This nationwide oncology outc omes database is the largest clinical disease registry in the world. Nearly 2 million cases of cancer are diagnosed every year. There are currently only 1,500 accredited cancer programs in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. NCH is one of them. In fact, our ACS surveyor, a surgical oncologist for decades from the Boston area, related at the exit conference, after submitting his assessment, that he will be retiring to Naples.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA38 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTON They live on our streets, in fields and barns, behind shopping centers and in our neighborhoods. They eat on back porches and in city parks, fed by dedicated cat lovers. Theyre the felines now called community cats, and while many of them are feral, some are strays or abandoned former pets who have adapted to life outdoors. Some estimates suggest there are as many unowned as owned felines in the U.S., most of them unvaccinated and never spayed or neutered. Left free to reproduce, theyll create the next generation of community cats, and the next, and the next. Operation Catnip aims to change that, says founder Dr. Julie Levy, director of the shelter medicine program at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. The trap-neuter-return (TNR) organization has been running free high-quality, highvolume spay/neuter clinics for community cats in Gainesville, Fl., since 1998. In 2014 alone, they helped 2,693 cats and prevented the births of an estimated 6,142 kittens just in the first year following surgery. Now, thanks to a grant from PetSmart Charities, theyre throwing open their operational model and training program to veterinarians, veterinary students and veterinary technicians from all over the country. Our vision is to train an army of veterinarians to spay and neuter Americas community cats, said Dr. Levy. This approach, along with vaccination, will allow us to reduce cat population, control infectious diseases and improve the lives of the cats. Operation Catnip clinics are run MASHstyle, with each cat tended by volunteer veterinarians, technicians and veterinary students. Each cat receives a medical examination and, if healthy, is spayed or neutered, treated for fleas and other parasites, and returned to the same place she or he was trapped. Its easy to tell if a cat has been treated at the clinic, because of the distinctive ear tip each one receives during their surgery. This means those cats can easily be identified as having already been sterilized, so they wont be trapped again, putting them through unnecessary stress and taking the place of cats who still need care. One graduate of the program, Dr. Amy Karls, was so inspired by her training with the Operation Catnip program that she now volunteers her services with four different community cat organizations near her North Grafton, Mass., home all that on top of her full-time career as a veterinarian. I wasnt taught the high-volume, highquality surgical techniques now commonly used in TNR programs while I was in veterinary school, she said. We learned new surgical skills, colony management and trapping techniques, and feline medical and behavioral pearls.America is a nation of cat lovers. One 2007 study found that 81 percent of us would prefer to see cats left where they are rather than killed, if those were the only two choices. Programs like Operation Catnip offer something better than either: reduced population over time, vaccination to help prevent infectious disease, and a chance for healthy feral cats to return to their homes in our communities without adding to the feline population.It also offers a chance for veterinarians to become better surgeons, and for all veterinary professionals to learn innovative strategies for managing community cats in their hometowns. I was able to bring everything I learned back to our local rescue and TNR groups, said Dr. Karls. It was truly wonderful to see so many people united for the common goal of improving the lives of the homeless cat population.To learn more about Operation Catnip, or to sign up for one of its upcoming training sessions, visit operationcatnipclinic.org.

Avery, age 6 Leukemia patient Naples, FL Will you be her hero? Just give what you can at ChildrensHospitalGoal.org. Her favorite hero? THE DIVA DIARIESSearching for a lookAs I was sifting through my closet, my dresser and various and sundry piles of clothes on the bedroom floor the other day to find something anything to wear to a daytime restaurant opening, my friend Liz called as she was on her way to the same event. Youre still not even in the car yet? No! I cant find anything to wear, I fretted. Liz admitted that she struggled with the same dilemma. I really wish I had a look, she said. She had hit on something I hadnt been able to put my finger on. I stopped tossing clothes to and fro that instant and agreed. Me, TOO. I need a look. Ive always wanted a look, that go-to signature style that for some women seems enviably effortless. If I had a look, getting ready for an outing whether it was lunch with friends, a party in the evening or just going to Publix (where its inevitable that youll run into at least five people you know) would be such a breeze. My friend Robin has a great look: She often goes for skinny jeans with an oversized white button-down shirt, untucked and unfussy but accessorized with fabulous shoes, super-cool sunglasses and a great piece of jewelry. But, the jeans and the white shirt are her thing, and shes been rocking the look for years as the accessories keep it fresh. When I told Liz I wanted Robins look, she told me: Thats Robins look. You need your own look. And shes right. I would also like to have my friend Ashas look. Shes all about jeans and a tank top, but she mixes her look up with wigs, hats, funky shoes (think purple Doc Martens or zebra-striped pumps). Asha is also nearly 6 feet tall, slim and gorgeous so she can pretty much have whatever look she wants. Sigh. My petite redhead friend Laura has a great look: its preppy, colorful, very Lily Pulitzer. Yet another look Id love, but its just not me; its Laura. Ive been knocking around earth here for a while, and still no look yet. I might be all hippy-chick gauze one day and all White House Black Market the next. But, its my dream to find a look and stick with it so Im not digging through my wardrobe in a panic every time I have to leave my house. I sometimes worry that my look will end up being sneakers, turquoise clam diggers, a fanny pack and a pink T-shirt. I seriously want to avoid that look because it is already way too popular in Southwest Florida. Meanwhile, the clock is ticking as I continue to look for a look.Spring into spring fashionsFor style inspiration, Im hoping the annual Spring Into Fashion event taking place Saturday, March 21, at the Village on Venetian Bay will be the springboard I need to propel me toward my look. It starts at 1 p.m. and includes Stacey Deffenbaugh of NBC-2 as emcee and the newest fashions from boutiques throughout the Village organized by Michaela Vattimo and Ashleigh Henry. And best of all: Its free to attend, but participating boutiques will donate a percentage of the days sales (you will, of course, be inspired to shop after the fashion show) to Susan G. KomenSouthwest Florida. And coming up Thursday, March 26, its Wild About Fashion, the annual spring fashion show and luncheon at The Carlisle Naples to benefit Sabal Palm Elementary School. Youll be wild about the latest styles from Karies Kreations. Tickets are $20, and reservations are requested by March 23. Call 494-8974. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 MONEY & INVESTINGNavigating the labyrinth of Medicares rules and choicesMedicare choices are among the most complicated and important financial and medical insurance decisions that you will ever make. The saying Measure twice but cut once applies to most decision making; reworded as Measure 10 times and then cut aptly applies to Medicare decisions. And best you measure alongside experts, family members, financial advisers and other seniors already on Medicare and not just rely on Internet educational sources. Medicare is a national social insurance program administered by the U.S. government for Americans 65 and over (and also for those younger who have specific diseases or disabilities.) On average, Medicare covers about half of the health care charges for those enrolled in Medicare, Wikipedia explains. The enrollees must then cover the remaining approved charges either with supplemental insurance or with another form of out-of-pocket coverage. Out-of-pocket costs can vary depending on the amount of health care a Medicare enrollee needs. You must study Medicare before making choices not just read about it, not talk about it, and think about it you must study it. It cannot be made simple and it will require a fair amount of time, likely spent in meetings with experts. To understand its array of choices, the choices that are right for your unique medical situation, the pricing of alternative choices takes time. Its safe to say what is good for Susie down the street and good your brother Joe just might turn out to be the totally wrong plan for you. It is best if you nail down a process that will bring this dark subject to light, then that you execute your process and give yourself time to ponder the best decision. By age 65, aging has brought changes to our minds and bodies. Some are already challenged with loss of memory and other cognitive functions. By 65, many are already challenged with hefty drug and medical bills; they might wrongly opt for a less-expensive plan just to avoid more immediate costs. Our ability to deal with change is diminished. So there is no embarrassment in creating a collaborative process with others. Steps in your process might include: 1. Study the five basic parts to Medicare decision making so that you can understand it to the point where you can verbalize a simple explanation of Medicare Part A, Part B, Supplemental, Medicare Advantage plans and Part D. You can go to medicare.gov for a framework understanding. 2. Make appointments with several experts. Plan on a minimum of 90 minutes per meeting as initial meetings are still ramping your learning. Be aware that most of these experts are licensed in insurance and are looking to sell either a supplemental policy or an Advantage Plan and that there what they emphasize is often skewed to their companys particular strengths. Best that you visit with at least two selling an Advantage Plan and at least two selling a Supplemental Policy and, if AARP is not included as one of those experts, then add it to your list. You will learn something new with each expert and you will be presented with a variety of pricing and plan options. 3. Visit with your financial adviser if he or she is Medicare literate; if not, seek counsel from an advisory firm that specializes in Social Security payments, Medicare and assisted living/nursing care insurance. 4. Use the Internet to learn more, but use it carefully. Many informational sites are marketed to appear as public information sources when in actuality they are funded by private insurance companies whose end goal is to sell you their type of coverage. 5. Call Medicare and review specifics especially if you have a severe, complicated medical problem that requires infusions, expensive drugs, etc. You do not want to accept your Supplemental or Advantage plan salespersons understanding of coverage you want to hear it yourself and you might want to call the provider of the infusion or expensive drugs or trial drugs, etc. as they probably know Medicare treatment/acceptance. Expensive gets tricky because it is expensive! There are no Medicare offices as there are Social Security offices. 6. Begin this process at least six months before you turn 65. 7. Price out your choices so that you have a template of what you will be paying and what are the thresholds for your portion of payment, etc. 8. Make a decision. Word to the wise: if you cannot explain to someone else what choices you are making and why, and the pros and cons of your decision making, then you probably do not understand Medicare. If you know that you do not understand your choices, even after counsel from experts, then possibly turn to a family member who can help in the process.

eled here for a month or six weeks. Americans were stunned by his Depression-era salary of $80,000, roughly equal to $1.13 million today, the first sign of real money in the game of baseball. But when somebody asked him if he thought it was fair that President Herbert Hoover only made $75,000, the Babe famously replied, What the hell has Hoover got to do with it? Besides, I had a better year than he did. Even back in the 1950s or early s, the average salary of an average player might have hovered near $12,000. But these days baseball is serious business, one of Floridas single most powerful economic engines, its boosters insist. And the young men on the diamond, some of them still teenagers, average about $3 million per year in salaries. Baseball is a business, after all but its the best business there is, says Mike Bauer, the general manager for Roger Dean Stadium in Palm Beach Countys Jupiter, where the St. Louis Cardinals play 14 home games and the Miami Marlins play 15 in their tune-ups for opening day in the majors, Sunday, April 5. Spring training is an economic engine for Palm Beach County. Our fans are everywhere in Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens staying at hotels, eating in restaurants, going to the beach, going to malls and theaters this is our bread and butt er time. We have 171 professional games: 31 spring-training and 140 minorleague games. This is when were (at the peak). Thats true on Floridas west coast, as well, where Charlotte Countys Sports Complex, rated the best spring training stadium in a 2014 USA Today poll, is home to the Tampa Bay Rays, who also co-own the Wyvern Hotel in Punta Gorda, and in Lee County, where both the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins spend the spring. Not only the fans, but the players help muscle up the local economies, along with coaching staffs, team administrators and team families, some of whom live in the area for several months out of the year, not just six or seven weeks, says Katie Haas, senior director of Florida Business Operations for the Boston Red Sox. Players and front office staff both they love it here. A lot of them come earlier than the official start time, and I know players for both the Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins have moved here permanently or have vacation homes here. So maybe its sunshine, not just baseball, that brings them. And their money. The Red Sox organization spends six figures annually in hotel accommodations (in Lee and Collier counties alone), Mrs. Haas adds. Were here with Red Sox players (on minor league and Triple A teams) playing baseball almost 10 months a year. We put up the minor league players the major league players get their own homes so we have a need 10 months a year for accommodations. And the coaches we bring in are renting cars and spending money in restaurants and all of that, all the time. In Charlotte County, the Tampa Bay Rays bought a share in the Wyvern Hotel in downtown Punta Gorda, with its baseball-themed dining room replete with photos and artifacts from the great days of baseball. With our year round partnership (with the team) we get a lot of business, so its been really good for us, says Chris Heaxt, assistant general manager of the Wyvern. A lot of people from Tampa Bay and St. Pete will come down anytime and stay at the hotel and walk around town, checkout the restaurants we have a lot of out of towners. Meanwhile, fans at stadiums on both coasts pay roughly the same for seats, which isnt much compared to tickets for games during the regular season, especially in September when the playoffs are unfolding. At Roger Dean, the price is $322 for a field box to all the Marlins home games, and $345 for a field box to see the Cardinals spring training schedule from just above the diamond itself. Fans can toss in another $10 or so every time they park at some stadiums, too. But those prices are not accurate indicators of the huge wealth in Florida baseball, even though fans do get to pay big-league prices for beer and soda, hot dogs, ice cream, popcorn and the newer, more upscale fare beginning to appear at ballparks. The best indicator of whats at stake and how much money lies on the table of baseball might be a glimpse at the salaries of players today. When Florida Weekly correspondent and veteran baseball writer Glenn Miller free-lanced a Red Sox story for a Boston media outlet last week, he got a good look at that money, which he shared with Facebook friends: Greetings again from JetBlue Park. Only eight hours to game time. What in tarnation am I doing here so ea rly? The Red Sox have an 11:30 a.m. conference to introduce 19-year-old Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada. He received a signing bonus of $31.5 million. Yes, $31.5 million. How much did you make at 19? And on the other coast in the Marlins organization, Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton has signed a $315 million contract. The young Mr. Moncadas signing bonus alone is more than a third of what Lee County taxpayers helped ante up about $80 million for a perfect replica of Fenway in Boston right down to the famous green wall, so the Red Sox would stay in Lee County. That meant abandoning the picturesque 7,000-seat City of Palms Park in downtown Fort Myers, originally designed for the Red Sox, and which taxpayers continue to pay off. Now, if they want to get their moneys worth at that confection of a stadium off Broadway, they will be able to come see local college players from the new teams fielded by Florida SouthWestern State College. County commissioners who voted to power up baseball in Lee County with taxpayer money also provided an additional $42.5 million to renovate the now-dazzling Minnesota Twins facility, known as the CenturyLink Sports Complex home of Hammond Stadium, five additional playing fields, and the studious-sounding new Twins Player Development Academy. The total project is worth almost $50 million; the Twins have kicked in $6 million or a bit more, just over 25 percent of what the organization pays Joe Mauer, for example. The public is covering the rest. And in Palm Beach County, officials appear eager to approve a new, second stadium where the Washington Nationals will conduct spring training in the future, bringing a total of five teams to the east coast. Former U.S. Congressman Mark Foley, the Palm Beach County (Dist. 16) Republican who resigned in 2006 after suggestive emails and to Congressional pages became public, has been lobbying for the stadium on behalf of the Nationals, according to reports in local papers and in The Washington Post. Mr. Bauer, the GM at Roger Dean Stadium, put the effort perspective this way: A new stadium is a positive on two fronts, for us. We were down to three teams on the east cost and if the Astros had chosen to go. But now well have five teams, and that will help us. Having Nationals and Astros fans coming in from D.C. and Houston, not only to see our games but to put down roots here, is a good thing. And baseball breeds baseball. But there are skeptics of the largesse baseball proponents point to. They argue that in Lee County, the total cost to taxpayers and visitors for the stadiums is something on the order of $122 million, and baseball fever that comes infected with that kind of bill will never pay off, no matter how many restaurant meals and hotel rooms spring training fans and baseball organizations buy. Weve never really found any evidence that spring training has much to do with the amount of spending that goes on in any location, University of South Florida Economics Professor Philip Porter noted in a Bloomberg News Service report last March. Even if the claims (about) all these people coming are true, the amount of tax revenue generated by spending is not enough to cover the operation and maintenance costs of a stadium, so the purchase price of the stadium has to come from some other source. But the huge sums that include signing bonuses or the now mostly forgotten debates about stadium costs on the west coast are seemingly only a small part of the Boys-of-Summer festivities that swirl like lazy little cyclones through Florida stadiums. The joy of the game is just something you cant put a price on, many say which is how Katie Haas sees it. Baseball, after all, has been her life. I was born and raised in Sarasota when it was just a sleepy little town, and we were season ticket holders, she recalls. I counted myself lucky because the big leagues came to town. In high school she worked for a Red Sox minor league team before going to Northeastern University in Boston and interning with the Red Sox, then moving to the southwest coast to make her home in Fort Myers, where she lives with her two children and her husband, who works for the Baltimore Orioles. When the teams move out to their respective cities and the regular season gets underway, it doesnt end for Mrs. Haas, or for many others left behind in the Grapefruit League. The (JetBlue) ballpark is 106 acres of county-owned and 20 acres of adjacent land that the Red Sox own, and we actively program the facility with different events all the time. As a result, its no longer just baseball at the baseball stadium. Its a new avenue of business on a year-around basis, she says.

COOPER ERB ROSALES MCDOUGALL ON THE MOVE
Here are some warning signs that the patriarchal mindset has taken hold in your company: Theres a lot of talk about employees and coworkers being treated like family. Sure, Were just one big family here sounds good, because it implies that everyone in the organization likes, supports and looks out for one another. But even with the best of intentions, its a bad idea to relate to employees and coworkers this way. Most families are dysfunctional, Mr. Prosser says. When you play the role of Mom or Dad, you will inevitably breed sibling rivalries, jealousies and resentment. Plus, youll find yourself tempted to give your so-called family members a pass when they drop the ball, whereas youd hold actual employees accountable in the same situation. A sense of entitlement has overtaken the ranks. To paraphrase Peter Block, entitlement is present when managers believe that their employees needs are more important than the business. Almost without fail, this attitude prevails in patriarchies because leaders who think theyre being benevolent give their people too much leeway. (For example, Whats the big deal if Jean is always a little tardy? I dont want her to get mad and leave, so Ill just overlook it.) As a result, employees feel entitled to help themselves to whatever they want long lunches, coming in late or even embezzling, Mr. Prosser explains. Over time, little infractions will turn into huge issues for all of you as the organization loses integrity. Leadership takes on a cult-like status. Since only a patriarchys leaders can exercise power and dominance over others, leadership (not innovation or growth) becomes the main goal to employees aspire. Charismatic leaders are worshiped whether theyre effective or not. Meanwhile, creating an environment where people can be of service and partner with others falls completely by the wayside, Mr. Prosser warns. Favoritism flourishes. In patriarchies, you can bet that leaders have favorite kids or as Mr. Prosser calls them, sacred cows. They stand in the middle of the road where they stall progress, but no one is willing to call negative attention to them, much less push them aside. Whether a leader willfully overlooks unproductive behavior or simply doesnt see it, favoritism creates a destructive, dysfunctional culture in which everyone else resents and works around the sacred cow, Mr. Prosser says. Meanwhile, the leader never recognizes that person as a drain on productivity and morale.What to do What can you do if one or more of these signs is present in your organization? The first and most important step, Mr. Prosser says, is to take is to stop relating to people in terms of their personalities or privileged positions in the company, and start relating to them based on their accountability how well they keep their promises to produce real results. If you notice a gap between their words (what they say they are committed to) and their actions, ask yourself if youve actually modeled that behavior for them, and then ask the employee whats keeping him or her from achieving the results they are accountable for, he says. Then work with that person to provide whats missing. Doing this one thing will spark immense change in your company and begin to close the doors on patriarchy once and for all.

(Yes, even those that are run by women.) And the bad news is that a patriarchal leadership model one in which the boss maintains a clear line of authority and enjoys special privileges while employees do as they are told is very bad for your company. Patriarchy creates a class divide they/them vs. we/us and thus erodes connectedness, says Daniel Prosser, author of THIRTEENERS: Why Only 13 Percent of Companies Successfully Execute Their Strategy and How Yours Can Be One of Them. Without connectedness, he adds, there is no way you can consistently execute your strategy. A destructive patriarchal dynamic is one of the culprits that can be responsible for a sinking strategy something from which 87 percent of all companies suffer, Mr. Prosser says. In THIRTEENERS, he explains how to diagnose exactly why your strategy is sinking and how to push your company into the 13 percent that do succeed, based on his research of Best Places to Work companies.

Send In Those Proxy VotesIf you own stock in a company, youre not just betting on its future; youre actually a part owner of it, albeit with a tiny share. You get the right to receive dividends and any rights and privileges that go with ownership.One of the rights that most shareholders have is to vote their shares at annual company meetings. Even though you may not think your vote will make a difference, it can. Its important to look through the materials for your companys annual meeting and to monitor closely the issues that company management will discuss there.Reviewing annual reports, proxy statements and other literature will help keep you better informed about your company and its prospects, as well as warn you of any possible disagreements among company management and large shareholders.The proxy form is similar to an absentee ballot, allowing you to mail in your vote. (Alternatively, you can usually vote online.) Along with it, youll receive a small booklet called a proxy statement that explains the issues up for a vote in more detail. It will usually describe the companys position on the issues, often with the opposing position explained as well. While proxy forms usually include recommendations from company management as to how they would like you to vote your shares, you have no obligation to follow these recommendations.Recent business scandals have led to cries for greater corporate responsibility. We shareholders should exercise our rights to participate in our companies governance, supporting good policies and practices. The best way you can be heard is by casting your vote, by proxy or in person. Even when managements side wins, if enough people have voted the other way, it can make an impression and a difference.Learn more about proxy voting online. At sites such as proxydemocracy.org, you can look up your companies to see what issues are being voted on, get guidance on how you might want to vote, and learn how your mutual funds have voted, too. Click in and spend some time becoming a savvier shareholder. Lost MomentumMy dumbest investment was getting suckered into a momentum investment. I lost 50 percent in two days. The next day I started reading about value investing. It was like a heavenly light was turned on in the sky. J.R., onlineThe Fool Responds: Momentum investing is problematic. It involves buying stocks that are rising and selling ones that are falling (ideally, short-selling them). The assumption is that a rising stock will be more likely to keep rising than to fall, and that a falling one will likely keep falling. Those are not the best kinds of assumptions on which to put at risk your hard-earned dollars. We at Fool HQ prefer value investing, where one studies companies closely and aims to buy undervalued stocks, those trading for less than they seem to be worth. They may or may not be rising in value now, but we expect them to rise in the long run. Dont just look for rising stocks. Some terrific companies stocks may have fallen for a while due to fleeting issues. Those can be especially great bargains for long-term investors. Kick These TiresThe tire business is generally perceived as not very exciting, but Goodyear Tire & Rubber (Nasdaq: GT) is burning rubber all over Wall Streets estimates. Six years ago, Goodyear was a mess. Car sales in the U.S. fell some 35 percent during the Great Recession, while China was imposing a tariff on foreign tires in the worlds largest auto market.But times have changed, with the company surpassing Wall Streets expectations in eight of the past nine quarters. In Goodyears fourth-quarter report, released last month, it announced $1.7 billion in operating income a new record and it marked the fourth straight year that Goodyear has delivered at least $1.25 billion in operating income, also a new record.There has been an increase in new and used tire demand since the Great Recession, and Goodyear has been focusing more on its higher-margin premium tires, expanding its manufacturing capabilities for high-end tires to meet unexpectedly strong demand. It has also done a good job controlling its costs. New labor contracts with its union workers, along with job cuts and lower rubber costs, have helped boost margins.Goodyear is also pushing into fastgrowing emerging markets. With the company expected to grow profits by 11 percent annually over the next five years and sporting a forward-looking price-toearnings (P/E) ratio of just 8, it seems that theres plenty of tread left on this stock. Known for delivering the news, I put out my first issue way back in 1851, well before the Civil War.

Today, people click to my website regularly from more than 200 countries and territories. Who am I? (Answer: The New York Times Co.) Active vs. PassiveQWhat are actively managed mutual funds? P.D., Auburn, AlabamaATheyre funds run by professionals who hand-pick investments, aiming for strong returns. A mid-cap equity mutual fund, for example, will be full of mediumsize company stocks selected by the funds managers. Index funds, meanwhile, are passively managed funds, aiming to mirror the components and performance of an existing index. An index fund based on the Standard & Poors 500 will hold the 500 stocks in the same proportion as the index. Weve been pointing out for many years now that the majority of actively managed stock funds underperform the overall stock market and the index funds that track it. Perhaps the biggest reason is cost, since, in order to mimic an index, passively managed funds dont need to employ lots of analysts. Most investors would do well to have at least some, if not most, of their assets in index investments, which tend to have low fees.

L.M., Fulton, MissouriAIt depends to a great extent on interest rates and expectations. If youre paying 6 percent on your loans, but you expect to earn 9 percent annually on your investments, then youll likely earn more than you pay out. If your debt is costing you a lot, or at least more than you expect to earn, paying it off quickly is smart. Got a question for the Fool?

REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 B12 A dozen member advocates from the Naples Area Board of Realtors joined more than 1,000 fellow Realtors across Florida earlier this month to rally for real estate issues on the Capital Courtyard in Tallahassee. Attending the rally as a large unified force shows our state leaders that we are steady in our commitment to work to protect property and home ownership rights, Rick Fioretti, president-elect of NABOR, says. Great American Realtor Days is an annual pilgrimage to Tallahassee during the legislative session that gives Realtors the chance to advocate for legislative priorities. NABOR member and State Rep. Matt Hudson welcomed his friends from Naples at the rally. Bill Poteet, a past president of NABOR, was one of 12 NABOR delegates who attended the Tallahassee rally. Were the only state in the nation that charges sales tax on commercial leases, Mr. Poteet says, adding, In many cases, Florida businesses are paying taxes on top of taxes because, if they are in a net lease deal, the lease payment bundles together the rent, utilities and property taxes. He and Mr. Fioretti agree that sales tax on a commercial lease makes it hard for Florida to compete with other states for business relocations. The delegation requested the Legislature consider a 1 percent reduction in sales tax for commercial leases. Another issue of great concern to Realtors in Collier County because it affects the closing process for sellers and buyers is the practice among association management companies of charging high rates for estoppel certificates. The average fee is around $250, but some Realtors at the rally reported seeing them as high as $1,000 recently. This is like an exit tax on sellers for information their associations NABOR sends delegation of 12 to Tallahassee SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYHouse Hunting: 15134 Brolio Lane Mediterra COURTESY PHOTOSSEE NABOR, B31

Carrara Continues to Generate Strong Appeal at Talis ParkWith construction activity progressing on schedule, the penthouse-style Carrara condominium residences at Talis Park in North Naples continue to generate strong appeal among homebuyers intent on enjoying the simplicity of a maintenancefree lifestyle. An enclave of spacious residences being built by WCI Communities, Carrara will feature 90 homes in 15 midrise buildings at build-out. Each building includes three floors over parking with two residences per floor. The first four buildings are now under construction with over 80% of the residences sold. Additional buildings have been released for sale. Completion of the first Carrara building is anticipated in spring 2015. Priced from the $700s, Carrara offers the simplicity of maintenance-free condominium living along with the luxurious ambiance one would expect in a community of Talis Parks stature. Each residence includes a private elevator lobby, a spacious great room, a gourmet island kitchen, an on the view master suite, two guest ensuites, a library/media room, a powder bath, and secured ground level parking. The luxury penthouse-style residences offer more than 2,900 square feet of air conditioned living space and feature wraparound loggias. The Carrara residences overlook the Sea Dwarf Paspalum fairways and greens of Talis Parks Greg Norman-Pete Dye designed golf course and Vyne House a New Fashioned clubhouse located on the communitys Grand Piazza. Golf, tennis, a fitness center, spa and multiple dining venues will be within a short walk from the Carrara residences. Construction of the neighborhoods private hospitality area has begun and includes a pool, a covered gathering area, restrooms, and grills. The hospitality area will be located just steps away from Talis Parks Casa Cortese Grille, an outdoor dining and lounge experience situated adjacent to the communitys pristine driving range. Developer Kitson & Partners has created a new vision at Talis Park that redefines the Naples country club experience. Kitsons contemporary interpretation of luxury living is uncomplicated. Talis Park is the Club reconsidered and invites a select group of members to enjoy an active, health-oriented lifestyle. Talis Parks neighborhoods offer a parklike setting with golf course, preserve and water views, or a maintenance-free environment within walking distance of the communitys amenity core. This In the Park or In the Village approach reflects Kitsons commitment to creating a community where every aspect of country club living is relevant to the residents daily lives. Carraras In the Village lifestyle brings a measure of simplicity to luxury living that affords immediate access to Talis Parks amenities. Carraras proximity to Casa Cortese and Vyne House will offer residents a full In the Village experience. Casa Corteses outdoor dining and lounge area is a favored gathering place for Talis Park residents for lunch, following a round of golf, and during weekly happy hours that are included on the communitys full slate of social events. Located adjacent to the Great Lawn at Talis Parks Grand Piazza, Vyne House epitomizes Kitsons New Fashioned aesthetic. Vyne House consists of a series of lifestyle oriented spaces designed to be used every day, inviting users to come as they are in a relaxed, comfortable format. The buildings are interconnected by covered outdoor walkways and wrapped around multiple courtyards that offer the possibility of outdoor dining and entertaining. The already completed Vyne House Shops features Fionas Market Cafe. Fionas serves fresh, local fare, wine selections, bar service and other items. Fionas general store personality offers a dining experience that complements Casa Corteses comfortable ambiance. Fionas will provide Carrara residents with an ideal gathering place for conversation and coffee after a bike ride or walk, after a workout, yoga or Pilates session in the Vyne House Core Fitness Center, or after a manicure or massage in the Esprit Spa, both of which are favored destinations for Talis Parks residents. Vertical construction of the 26,470 square feet under air, multi-level Vyne House Phase II project is underway and progressing on schedule. Kitson anticipates holding a soft opening of Phase II in December, 2015 and a grand opening in January, 2016. Phase II will introduce Palm Court, an open-air courtyard that is the centerpiece of Vyne House. In addition to serving as a point of entry, Palm Court will be used as a social space suited to hosting a variety of events. The upper level will also include formal indoor dining, casual indoor and outdoor dining, a multi-purpose room adjacent to Palm Court, aerobics and cardio workout rooms, and a Wine Room/Board Room that will host wine tastings and monthly wine pairing dinners. The lower level of Vyne House Phase II will host the golf pro shop as well as mens and ladies locker rooms. Phase II will also include completion of a resort style pool and a stately rotunda featuring a two-sided fireplace overlooking the 18th green. Talis Park is anchored by the glittering lakes and Sea Dwarf Paspalum fairways and greens of the Talis Park Golf Club golf course that is acknowledged as one of the finest golf experiences in the Unites States. One of just two Greg Norman-Pete Dye designed courses in the world, the course is ranked #91 in Golfweeks 2014 Best Residential Courses and consistently ranked among the top 20 courses in Florida.Talis Park is conveniently located just minutes from the beach and from the dining, shopping and entertainment venues at Mercato, Coconut Point and Gulf Coast Town Center.

OPEN HOUSEMarch 22nd, 1-4pm Pulte plans 387 homes near FGCUNM Development Group, a full-service real estate development and advisory firm based in Naples, has managed the first of three phased closings with Pulte Home Corp. for 130 acres of the University Highland Limited Partnership property adjacent to Germain Arena and bounded by Estero Parkway, I-75 and Miromar Outlets. According to NMs partners, Al Moscato and David Nassif, Pulte plans to build 387 homes on its 130 acres. The sale closed in late February for an undisclosed amount and follows, by less than six months, NMs successful closing on the sale of an 18-acre parcel at the Estero site to Continental 305 Fund LLC. Continental is already under construction on a 260-unit apartment complex. With the sales to Pulte and Continental, NM still has 30 developable acres available within the 208-acre site. Remaining entitlements include 203 residential units, 200 hotel rooms, 150,000 square feet of office space and about 100,000 square feet of retail space. Student housing, assisted living, continuing care and independent living facilities are among the approved uses. The land is listed by Land Solutions Inc. Mr. Moscato and Mr. Nassif manage numerous landholdings and projects throughout Southwest Florida, including land approved for multi-family developments in Naples and downtown Fort Myers. NM is in the process of rezoning land adjacent to Hibiscus Golf Course on Rattlesnake Hammock Road in Naples for multi-family residential. For more information, call 234-5941 or visit nmdev.com.

NAPLES | $299,000 5 BLUEBILL AVENUE #310COMPLETED SALES 2015 typically have on file, Mr. Fioretti says, adding that new legislation would effectively put a cap on what can be charged for the service. Four of Florida Realtors 2015 legislative priorities advanced in the Florida House and Senate during the legislative session: SB 140, a proposal to cut the commercial lease sales tax by 1 percent, passed its first committee. HB 557, legislation that would reform the Florida Insurance Guaranty Association to attract private market capital to the state, passed the House Insurance & Banking Subcommittee. HB 611, a bill to cap fees charged by community associations for estoppel certificates, cleared the House Civil Justice Subcommittee. HB 7003, the House version of a statewide water policy, was read a second time before the full chamber and was expected to pass the House. The NABOR delegation also presented some future talking points to legislators they met with during the rally, which included these topics: Prohibition of housing discrimination with regard to sexual identity. A need to attract more independent property insurers. Proposed creation of a public statewide property elevation certificate database.

C22 This is how bestselling novelist Nancy Horan writes books: It begins with an observation. Then it grows into an obsession. That obsession carries her over a number of years of research, writing and rewriting until, finally, she has a book. Her first novel, Loving Frank, about Mamah Borthwick Cheney and her love affair with architect Frank Lloyd Wright, took seven years to write. After it was published in 2007, it spent more than a year on the New York Times Best Seller List and was a must-read for book clubs across the nation. Loving Frank also won the 2009 James Fenimore Cooper Prize for Best Historical Fiction and was translated into 16 languages. It was such an incredible surprise to me, Ms. Horan says. I didnt know if it would even be published. To have it be on the New York Times Best Seller List for over a year was miraculous to me, and so much fun. It was a great sort of beautiful reward at the end of all that.Best-selling novelist Nancy Horan brings history to life SEE WOMEN, C4 HORAN BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com We all know the story of Pippin, right?

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS The tricky transition to just friends The problem with having a new man in my life is, well, all the other men in my life. My dating advice books give the same admonishment: Before starting any new relationship, we have to cut ties with the other relationships still hanging around. That means tossing out the old photos, the little gifts, the sexy lingerie anything from former lovers in order to make room for Mr. Right. But what if Mr. NotQuiteRight-ButNo-ReasonWhy-WeShouldntBe-Friends is still part of our lives? The problem with many of those dating advice books is that theyre set in a theoretical vacuum. The real world, where you and I live, is unspeakably messy. We exist in an overlapping grid of social networks friends, lovers, former lovers, ex-spouses, stepchildren, in-laws all these strange unions that bring a complicated mix of people into our lives. Somewhat recently, it seems, weve developed the mistaken idea that these ties can be severed. Perhaps this is a product of our divorce culture, where once the love has left a marriage we think a trip to the attorneys office is all it will take to set us free. Of course, its never that simple. We build lives with people. We trade secrets, and they come to know our intimate workings. These are the types of relationships we cannot simply abandon. Even if our heart opens to someone new. Knowing this, Ive been trying to figure out how to manage my relationship with a former love, a man Id still rank as one of my best friends. Hes the only one who appreciates my crass sense of humor, the sole person who can manage my foul moods. Hes still the man I call in my darkest moments, and the one I consult on all my home improvement projects. We didnt make it as a couple, but we seem to be doing fine as friends. Of course, we have a strict dont ask/ dont tell policy when it comes to new relationships. Im sure hes seeing other women, but he never lets on. And I dont mention my new flame. Id like to congratulate us on our success in managing this delicate dance; Id like to tell you that weve handled the transition just fine. But the truth is, were still having some hiccups. Like this past weekend. I called my one-time-boyfriend-now-good-friend after a hard day of working in my yard. I sat sprawled in a lawn chair while, three states away, he told me about the snow on the ground. Out of nowhere, he asked, What are you wearing? I laughed. Oh, you know those old cutoff shorts I like to put on when Im shoveling dirt. Want to take them off for me? he said. I thought for a moment. Did I want to . ? Wait a minute. Are you trying to have phone sex with me?He laughed in the way he does when hes busted and that was the moment when I realized this transition is going to be trickier than I thought.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C4 When she started out, the subject matter grabbed me and shook me, she says. I thought, Oh my Lord, I have to write this. I was obsessed. Complete obsession was the start of it. She followed Loving Frank in 2013 with Under the Wide and Starry Sky, an historic novel about Fanny Van de Grift Osbourne and her relationship with author Robert Louis Stevenson, which took them around the world. It took five years to write, and it, too, wound up on the New York Times Best Seller List. If shed known Loving Frank was going to take her seven years of work, I wouldnt have started it, the author says. They are huge chunks of life. I wonder: How many do I have left in me? When you start out, you know you have the story. For me, each of those (books) was based on real historical stories that were quite extraordinary. Sometimes, you cant make up what history actually offers you. History is marvelously interesting in and of itself. Loving Frank, she says, was a little-known chapter in Frank Lloyd Wrights life, this thing that totally upset and changed his life forever. Most people didnt know about it, she says. His affair with Ms. Cheney, the wife of a client, was a colossal scandal. It was even trumpeted from the headlines of newspapers; the Chicago Tribune ran headlines on the front page: LEAVE FAMILIES; ELOPE TO EUROPE; and WIFE WHO RAN AWAY WITH ARCHITECT. Ms. Horan didnt go in search of unconventional women to write about for her two best-selling novels. I just found them, she says. It makes me think that there were a whole bunch of unconventional women (in history), but we dont know about them. She was thrilled to discover Mamahs existence, which spurred her to do research. Not much was known or written about her, but the author developed her character based on what she found, skillfully piecing together the puzzle of her life. Ms. Horan will talk about her work at noon Saturday, March 21, as part of the Southwest Florida Reading Festival in downtown Fort Myers. Admission is free at Harborside Event Center. Other participating authors include presidential inaugural poet Richard Blanco and Jeff Lindsay, a Southwest Florida resident whose novels about a psychopathic killer were turned into the Showtime series Dexter. I think shes an awesome author, festival coordinator Margie Byers says about Ms. Horan. I love historical fiction because it brings history to life You can picture history so much better when its told through the eyes of someone in a story. Prior to writing Loving Frank, her first novel, Ms. Horan had been living in Oak Park, a Chicago suburb that is home to many of Frank Lloyd Wrights buildings. (She now lives in Puget Sound in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, photojournalist Kevin Horan.) The Cheney house, where the famous architect fell in love with Mamah, was just a few blocks away from Ms. Horans home, on the very same street. Not much had been written about Mrs. Cheney, she says, adding some of Mr. Wrights biographers felt that mentioning her, and the fact that he ran off with another mans wife, might sully his reputation. But Ms. Horan was intrigued. Her first attempt at the novel didnt work; she initially used four different points of view to tell the story. But once I started writing in Mamahs voice, it felt fine to me, she says. But to discover this highly educated woman did one of the things that was then and remains almost unthinkable for us, (that) she left her children for her lover, thats why I was nervous about having her be the protagonist. After the book was published, Ms. Horan learned that some readers so deeply disapproved of Mamahs choices, it was difficult for them to see beyond them. Ive had women show me their books, tattered and taped up, and they say, This is the book I threw against the wall. They were upset with her. Other readers, however, empathized with Mrs. Cheney; even though they didnt approve of her behavior, they could transcend it. Thats what a novel is good for, Ms. Horan says. It helps us empathize with others situations. She says she never expected it to become the source of heated discussions in reading groups. That was a revelation to me, she says. Also, I thought, Thats OK, thats really good. What happens is, the reader forms her or his own judgment about the characters. We hold up our own value system and ask ourselves: Would I have done that? They make us examine our deeply held beliefs and feelings.Fanny and StevensonIt was during a visit to the Monterey Bay area that Ms. Horan discovered Robert Louis Stevenson, author of classics such as Kidnapped, Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, had lived there in 1879. Curious, she did some research and learned that while in France, he had fallen in love with Miss Osbourne, an American woman, and followed her back to California to marry her. Ms. Horan wrote Under the Wide and Starry Sky using two points of view: that of the famous Scottish author and that of the older woman he loved. She had not written from a mans point of view before. Robert Louis Stevenson was just as interesting a character to me (as Fanny), she says. He was such a delightful character: complicated, flawed I love the flaws, of course. Theyre always interesting. The flaws make things happen. As with her first novel, she did extensive research, including reading several biographies, Miss Osbournes diaries, all of Stevensons novels and essays and eight volumes of his letters. Stevensons personality just shone through (in his letters), she says. He was funny, he was playful. He liked to have a good time, yet at the same time, he would fall into a depression about being ill The deeply private stuff, I did find in a couple of Fannys diaries. Those were keys, windows into her complex personality and her tenderness. Those were the insights that made me really like Fanny.Experience trumps youthMs. Horan held a number of jobs before becoming a novelist. She worked as a teacher and then in business before becoming a freelance writer for publications such as the Chicago Tribune and People magazine. She also co-authored a book about garden design. But when she turned 40 she decided she wanted to write fiction, and took some classes through the University of Chicago. I needed to do all that (before writing novels,) she says. I can look at it and think, too bad I started writing later in life. But I never could have written what I have now in my 20s, she says. It takes life experience to understand the choices those people made. It was not the most direct route, but I think that finally Im doing the work I was meant to do. Moving from writing non-fiction to fiction wasnt that big a leap, she says. When youre doing that kind of journalism, feature writing, youre doing everything you can do to get it right and to make it interesting. The transition is not so strange. I had the luxury of having time to explore and take a couple of classes, and then ultimately, to write and to make mistakes and reject and correct, and move toward a complete story. Joining a writers group mid-way into her first novel helped her get past the finish line, she says. Shes working on another book. I dont want to write about another famous person, though history will figure into it, she says, but refuses to be more specific. I want to keep exploring. I do love the historical element of it, she says. Basically, Im exploring new directions. I like to keep challenged, and keep interested. I have to feel really passionate about it, or Im not going to do it.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 It certainly seems that way. I do love playing a prince. Its great fun for me, he said by phone from Nashville, where Pippin was playing before heading south for shows March 24-29 at ArtisNaples, March 31-April 12 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale and April 28-May 3 at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach. For this touring revival of Stephen Schwartzs 1972 musical, the original Pippin, John Rubinstein, has signed on as Charlemagne. Film and TV star Adrienne Barbeau plays the role of Pippins grandmother, Berthe, in some cities, and the troupe Les 7 Doigts de la Main (translated: The 7 Fingers of the Hand) performs acrobatic feats. Diane Paulus directs. It literally is like a circus, and even Mr. Lips is getting in on the high jinks. Of course, I have to do those acrobatic elements, and that has been an exciting journey, he said. Im just trying to relax. I did gymnastics when I was very young. Most of my training has been in dance, so there is some body awareness, more than the average human. Even so, it has required work. Its been taking some getting used to and building up my stamina. I feel like I have a good grip on it now and have a little more fun with it, he said. Part of that comes from being on the road, and part it comes from working with a veteran like Mr. Rubinstein. Hes so much fun, Mr. Lips said. Every night is so different because we get energy from the audience. Its so much fun to share the stage with him. Not that Mr. Rubinstein offers advice. The show is a lot different than it was in the 0s, Mr. Lips said. He kind of lets me do my own thing, which is great, he added about Mr. Rubinstein. You can trace an evolution of sorts in the composers work from Pippin to his later smash hit, Wicked which Mr. Lips first heard as a youngster. I think with Wicked, they really encompassed the vocal stylings of today the wild, belty, exciting part of the voice, he said. I think originally the score of Pippin was not about that. They have really done a lot of work to manipulate the score to bring in the exciting elements of the voice. The result? I do think that the songs of both shows have such a beautiful connection to the rest of the play. I think they just flow in and out of the play so beautifully, he said. That makes it easier for Mr. Lips and the rest of the cast to hit the road in a tour such as this. After all, being in one theater for months at a time on a Broadway run has its limitations. Its one type of audience. The New York audience, he said, adding the first Broadway show he saw, at age 13, was the revival of Chicago. Never mind the tourists. That crowd is pretty constant. Whats great about touring is you get to visit these different cities and audiences are so diverse and they receive the show in different ways, he said. Good thing, since the cast of Pippin breaks the so-called fourth wall and involves the audience. We do address the audience. A lot of actors actually run up and down the aisles, Mr. Lips said. We really almost depend on the energy from the audience to drive us because they are such a part of the show. It really affects us when the audience is sort of quiet. Onstage, a quiet moment is among his favorite. The love song in Act II. Its the first time the show takes a breath, he said. The show is boisterous and fun, but it pauses. Then theres this really beautiful moment in Act II and its just two people on stage with a bare guitar and we sing this sweet love song. And like Mr. Lips career, the show kicks up its heels and the circus continues.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 ARTS COMMENTARYChaos in paradise: Theatre Conspiracys ArcadiaNo two ways about it, Arcadia is a challenging play. Challenging for actors, but also for audiences. Tom Stoppards famous play, now 22 years old, is crammed full of ideas and much talk of philosophy, higher mathematics, physics, history and poets. It tackles, among other things, thermodynamics, computer algorithms, Lord Byron, epistemology, landscape design, chaos theory vs. determinism and Romanticism vs. Classicism. Some critics have called it amazing, a masterpiece, rich, ravishing, a perfect marriage of ideas and high comedy. It was awarded the 1993 Olivier Award for Best Play and nominated for a Tony for Best Play in 1995 and for a Tony for Best Revival of a Play in 2011. The word Arcadia means pastoral simplicity and happiness. But some audience members at Theatre Conspiracy production might find it a synonym for boring or incomprehensible. On opening night, a few patrons walked out during Act I, which lasts about 90 minutes but feels much longer. At least a third or more of the audience didnt return after intermission, and a few slipped out in the middle of Act II. Theatre Conspiracy may have tackled a play light years beyond its ability. Its to be applauded for its reach, but Arcadia would challenge even seasoned, professional actors. It boasts 13 characters with faux British accents (well, one s a mute) and name-checks people who never appear on stage. The action all takes place in the same room in an English country house, switching back and forth between the early 1800s and the present day. Before scenes, were given musical cues that help: classical music for the early 1800s and modern rock (The Police) for the scenes that take place now. Costumes also help orient us, but near the end, the current-day characters dress up in the costumes of the 1800s and characters from both eras wind up on stage in the same room simultaneously. If you havent read the play or dont know anything about it, you could easily be floundering in a sea of confusion for the three hours it takes to unfold. A directors note from Bill Taylor in the program wouldve gone a long way toward helping audience members comprehension. The thick accents and lack of enunciation and projection by some performers also throws up obstacles. With some characters, I felt as I was trying to interpret what they said twice: Id try to figure out what their actual words were, and then Id try to interpret what they meant. A rude, talkative audience made things worse, adding to the muddle. The play opens with Septimus (Juan Alejandro) tutoring Thomisina (Holly Hagan), a 13-year-old girl with an active imagination. For example, she questions why, unlike Newtonian equations, which work backward and forward, we can stir things together (jam in pudding, for example) but if we stir backward, we cant stir them apart. She also questions, If there is an equation for a curve like a bell, there must be an equation for one like a bluebell, and if a bluebell, why not a rose? She asks what a carnal embrace is, having overheard some gossip from the servants. (It turns out the wife of one of the guests was seen having sex in the gazebo.) Flustered, and wanting to maintain his students innocence, Septimus first tells Thomisina it means embracing a side of beef. Septimus himself is soon challenged to a duel by the womans husband. Joann Haley, as Lady Croom, the lady of the house and Thomasinas mother, fully embodies her character. Her lines, her intonations, are totally believable. Everything comes alive when she sweeps onto the stage. As her tutor, you have a duty to keep her in ignorance, she informs Septimus. The 19th century scenes offer much verbal sparring and word play, but the wit seems to lag in the modern ones. Diana Waldier has crafted the costumes; with waistcoats, coats with tails, high collars and knee-length breeches, the men all look as if they belong on a Johnny Walker Red label. Things get a little confusing when the action switches to the present. Theres a young boy who doesnt speak, an author doing research (Angel Duncan as Hannah Jarvis) and an unwanted guest who argues with her (Josh Chapman as Bernard Nightingale.) Mr. Chapmans Bernard is narcissistic and insufferable; a Byron scholar, he wants to make an historic discovery to make a name for himself. By alternating centuries, and showing us what really happened, as opposed to what Bernard supposes, the playwright demonstrates how futile it can be to interpret history, especially when all the facts arent available. I confess, when another character, Valentine (Jacob Alganon Beal) starts pontificating about computer algorithms, fractals and physics, I got lost. The material, which has something to do with Thomasinas mathematical wonderings, was just beyond me. (I think Valentine is able to create the image of a leaf on a computer, using Thomasinas equation, but I could be wrong.) Some props are used in both centuries (an apple, a tortoise, clothing) and some items from the 19th century (letters, notes, an inscribed book of poetry) wind up in the hands of the 21st century characters who try, with varying success, to interpret their meaning. There are themes and interactions echoed again in the present-day scenes, which is a nice touch. And I liked seeing all the characters together around the same table, though I always thought waltzing had three steps: ONE-two-three, ONEtwo-three. (The characters supposedly waltzing seem to be doing a box step.) Surprisingly, the 1800s characters come to life more than the modern ones. Im not sure if they ever got the tone right, or if their dialogue and situations were supposed to be as funny as those of the homes previous tenants and guests. As mentioned, Ms. Haley brings much life to the play, and Mr. Chapman preens and struts like a peacock. Trevor Beauvois-Kinney provides much entertainment as the indignant cuckolded husband, and Jim Yarnes is ingratiating and mannered as Jellaby, the servant. Ms. Hagan is whimsical and impetuous as a young teenager trying to make sense of the world. Arcadia is a dense play, performed by actors of varying talent and accents. Unfortunately, much of its humor and symbolism are lost in this production. Its a valiant effort, but unfortunately not half as rewarding as I suspect it couldve been. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Arcadia>> When: Through March 28 >> Where: Theatre Conspiracy at the Alliance for the Arts, Fort Myers >> Cost: $22 ($11 for students with I.D.) >> Info: 936-3239 or theatreconspiracy.org

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC14 WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 FILM CAPSULESCinderella 1/2(Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Richard Madden) Maiden Cinderella (Ms. James) falls for Prince Charming (Mr. Madden) despite her stepmothers (Ms. Blanchett) efforts to make her miserable. This live-action, non-musical reimagining of the classic fairy tale is pure and sweet as can be, which is good for the little girls of the target demo but a bore for adults wanting a little bit of edge. Rated PG.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 Alzheimers disease.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 C15 LATEST FILMSRun All NightIs it worth $10? YesBruce Willis and Harrison Ford must be pissed. They used to be the go-to for older guy action roles, but a string of big-budget busts has str anded their A-list status in movie purgatory. Now the ass-kicking over50 roles go to Liam Neeson, who struck leading-man stardom with Taken in 2008 and seemingly hasnt said no to an action flick since. To his credit Run All Night is more drama than combat, but no matter: There are enough fistfights and shoot-outs to keep die-hard action fans more than satisfied. Ive done terrible things in my life, Mr. Neesons Jimmy Conlon says in the opening lines of the film and, boy, is that true. Murder mostly, but abandoning his family and being a terrible father also must be high on the list. For his entire adult life, Jimmy has served as an assassin for New York City mob boss Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris), whose hot-headed son Danny (Boyd Holbrook) is prime to take over the family business. Through coincidence, Jimmys estranged son Michael (Joel Kinnaman) works as a limo driver and happens to witness Danny murder someone in cold blood. Michael and Danny fight, and Jimmy, in the right place at the right time to help his son, ultimately ends up killing Danny. Michael bless his heart is one of those stupidly virtuous people who believe the police ensure law and order. He obviously does not know what kind of movie he is in. Corrupt cops frame him for Dannys murder, which prompts Jimmy to rescue Michael, leading to the father and son going on the lam trying to survive with all of Shawns men after them. Shawn even hires a relentless assassin named Price (Common) to finish them off; Price is the kind of guy who uses a red target light from his gun to alert everyone in the vicinity that hes there, so you know he means business. In the backdrop of it all are Michaels pregnant wife (Genesis Rodriguez) and their two daughters, all of whom are now endangered. For as much as the movie tries to depict a gritty and grim reality, director Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown) isnt afraid of the absurd. Example: Jimmy and Shawn have lengthy sit-down chats even after theyve declared war on one another, and Jimmy always escapes with ease. (Mr. Neeson and Mr. Harris acting in these scenes is exceptional; unfortunately, that gets lost in the inanity of the scenario.) With Shawns goons this inept, it is no wonder Jimmy is later able to go to Shawns central hangout and wreak havoc. He does most of this, by the way, using a six-shooter revolver, because apparently its 1874 and hes in the Old West. Lets be honest, though: We left credulity behind when we entered the theater. Mr. Neesons the hero, so writer Brad Ingelsbys (Out of the Furnace) plot will inevitably go out of its way to make Jimmys life difficult and unrealistic. OK, Run All Night isnt great.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC16 WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 CONTRACT BRIDGEA little ropeBY STEVE BECKERIt doesnt matter to declarer whether he makes a contract because his side has overwhelming high-card strength, because of his skillful play or because an opponent makes a mistake. What counts above all else is making the contract, and whatever can be done to bring this about is all to the good. While declarer has no objection to winning a hand on its merits, he also doesnt mind making a contract by inducing an opponent to commit an error. Take this deal from a team match where the contract was four spades at both tables. At the first table, West led a club to dummys ace, and declarer played a low spade to the ace, West showing out. South eventually went down one, losing a trump, two hearts and a club. At the second table, West also led a club, but here declarer played the jack of spades instead of a low spade from dummy at trick two. East covered the jack with the queen, which proved to be a fatal error. After West showed out, it was easy for declarer to avoid a trump loser by taking a finesse against Easts ten, and he wound up with 10 tricks. Obviously, leading the jack of spades from dummy was more successful than leading the five. More importantly, leading the jack couldnt hurt South regardless of how the missing trumps were divided. The play therefore offered a chance to gain a trick if East had all three trumps and made the mistake of covering with the queen. The second declarer, of course, had no intention of finessing if East followed low, but leading the jack gave East a chance to err, and to that extent increased the chance of making the contract.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC18 WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 FLORIDA WRITERSA classic Florida detective tale with distressed damsels galore Cooler Than Blood by Robert Lane. Mason Alley Publishing. 316 pages. Trade paperback, $14.95. Jake Travis, author Robert Lanes multi-skilled private investigator, is at it again when a damsel in distress taps into his needs and self-image. Jake is surprised to run into the very attractive Susan Blake for whom he had formed a quick and strong attraction a while back. He didnt let it go anywhere, however, as he knows better. The understanding and accommodating Kathleen is the love of his life, and Jake doesnt want to undermine their relationship (though he manages to do just that on a regular basis in spite of his good intentions). Cooler Than Blood is billed as a standalone novel, but Mr. Lane gave us many of its characters in The Second Letter, and the background with their appearance here seems to me insufficient. Yes, Cooler than Blood is enjoyable and riveting in itself, but reading it after The Second Letter will add significant depth and reverberations. Susan is reluctant to ask Jake for a favor, but she knows that he might be just the guy to find out what has happened to her headstrong niece Jenny, who had come to live with her but has mysteriously disappeared. Jenny, 18, was last seen on Fort Myers Beach, where she had left her attacker for dead. Jake gathers his usual team of stalwarts Morgan and Garrett, and together they devise a plan for locating and rescuing Jenny assuming she is alive and being held against her will. A series of scenes that focus on Jennys predicament show that such is exactly the case. As Jennys resilience and confidence are tested, important details about her background are revealed. We follow Jennys thought, memories and emotions through fascinating passages that lift Cooler Than Blood into a high realm of gritty achievement. We follow Jake up and down the Gulf Coast, as he focuses first on the brothers of Jennys assailants and then on some members of a regional criminal operation with ties to major players. The cast of characters grows, as do the opportunities for Jake to practice his skills. Often enough, he guesses wrong about one or another aspect of the case. Each failure lessens the chance for Jennys survival: Missing persons not found j philJASONpkjason@comcast.net LANE
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 C19 quickly are often not found alive. Jakes attempts to engage local police in the case are met with a tepid response. This is not a case on which they want to waste their resources. Teenagers run away all the time, and they show up when they want to. As the plot progresses, questions are raised about the officer who questioned Jenny before she disappeared. The interview recording just doesnt seem quite right. Jennys life is at risk because its believed she knows about a huge amount money that was in her attackers possession; some believe she also knows where it is. If this money was stolen, then someone out there wants his money back. The more Jake and his cohorts pursue Jennys whereabouts and the related stolen money issue, the more their discoveries lead to information that could reveal Kathleens true identity and put her at risk. Protecting Kathleen without alienating her affections is a power complication that Jake is not sure how to handle. The complex, knotty plot is constantly suspenseful, yet it is only one element in this novels appeal. Mr. Lane deserves praise for his handling of setting, both through his overall representation of the atmospherics and sensory allure of Floridas southwest coast and through his portraiture of individual scenes: beachfronts, building interiors and exteriors and the spaces in between. The author fills his story with allusions to pop culture (especially music) and to literature. Jake is a kind of literature snob, but he meets his namedropping match in one of his adversaries an unexpected dimension in a criminals personality. For the most part, readers will enjoy the literary gamesmanship. Finely drawn characters include slick mob functionary Joseph Dangelo, cautious Lee County sheriffs department detective Patrick McGlashan, the pseudonymous Kathleen, the impatient Susan Blakely and the courageous and inventive Jenny Spencer. Mr. Lane marks these and others with distinctive personalities; one doesnt get the feeling that they are just variations of characters in other novels. Cooler than Blood offers a feast of noir shades, details and character foibles, plus an alluring rip-tide sense of danger. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war litera ture and a creative writing text.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC20 WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 KOVEL: ANTIQUESOn the lookout for beehive porcelain BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELLooking for information on a piece you were told is antique Royal Vienna porcelain? You'll find it in Kovels Antiques and Collectibles Price Guide, and other online sources listed with beehive porcelain. The first mark used by the Royal Porcelain Manufactory in 1744 was actually a line drawing of the outline of a shield. But when turned upside down, it looked like a beehive. Collectors today call the mark a beehive and the porcelain Royal Vienna. The factory closed in 1864. But since then, porcelains have been made in Germany, Austria, Japan and other Asian countries that are reproductions of the expensive original antique pieces. Be very careful to examine any piece called Royal Vienna or any piece with a beehive mark before you buy it. A December 2014 auction by New Orleans Auction Co. sold a pair of Royal Vienna Porcelain Kinderkopf busts that were copies of figures designed by J. J. Kaendler at the German Meissen factory in the 1770s. A figure made by Kaendler in the 18th century would cost thousands of dollars. The pair, sold in New Orleans, were made about 1860 at the Konigliche Porcelain Factory in Berlin and brought $676. Q: We inherited an oak bookcase from my grandmother. It has five shelves that can be separated from each other. Each shelf has a lift-up glass door. The bookcase is labeled, Mission Bookcase Unit, manufactured by The Globe-Wernicke Co., Cincinnati, O. Please tell us its value. A: Globe Furniture Co. of Cincinnati bought Wernicke Co. of Minneapolis in 1899 to form the Globe-Wernicke Co. Otto Wernicke had patented his sectional bookcase in 1892 and it became a bestseller for the company. The bookcases, made in oak, ash, walnut or mahogany, became known as barrister bookcases. They were sold not only to lawyers, but to libraries, government offices and storefronts. Today, the bookcases are sought by collectors. A five-shelf unit in excellent condition would sell for more than $1,000.This pair of busts of well-dressed children was made about 1860. They are 8 inches high and are marked with a beehive. The pair cost $676. CHINA BISTRO WE MAKE THE BEST PEKING DUCK! OUR FOOD IS MADE WITH THE FRESHEST INGREDIENTS. FULL BAR & COMFORTABLE PATIO SEATING.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 C21 Q: I have a hardbound book titled Walter Keane, part of the Tomorrows Masters Series by Johnson Meyers. Its a first printing by Johnson Meyer Publishing Company, Redwood City, Calif., and has a copyright date of 1964. Is there any collectible value to this book because of the 2014 movie, Big Eyes, depicting the scandal about Walter Keane not painting the pictures sold as his work? I also have the book MDH Margaret Keane with the same copyright date. A: These books originally were sold as a boxed two-volume set. Margaret Keane signed some of her paintings with her initials, MDH, and her last name. Some of these are in the book about her. Walter claimed credit for her paintings of big-eyed children, and those paintings are included in the book about him. The couple divorced in 1965, but it was not until a 1970 radio interview that Margaret revealed that she was the real painter of the big eye pictures. The movie has generated interest in the Keanes, and online sources are asking high prices for the books, but they probably will not sell for much more than other used books. A set was offered for sale online for $700, but hasn't sold yet. Q: I bought a brass plate at a tag sale for a very inconsequential amount, thinking it might have a Hitler connection. It has a shield-shaped coat of arms and the word Berchtesgaden, and a coat of arms with crossed keys and trefoils with a smaller shield in the middle. The back of the plate has a date scratched on it, 5-05-1838. The plate is 9 inches across and looks hand hammered. Can you tell me the age and value? A: The date doesn't seem to be important in the history of Berchtesgaden but would indicate it was long before it was a retreat for Hitler and other Nazi leaders. Your plate does have the Berchtesgaden coat of arms in the center. Since the numbers on the back of the plate are scratched in, the date probably commemorates something meaningful only to the person who originally owned the plate. A 9-inch plate, with handwork, sells for about $50-$75. Q: We inherited a silver coffeepot marked Redfield & Rice, New York and August 1866. Its 14 inches high. We think its silver plate. Can you tell us something about the maker? A: James H. Redfield and James Rice were silver manufacturers who worked with various partners in the 1850s. In 1863 they started Redfield & Rice. The company became Redfield & Rice Manufacturing Co. in 1866 and was in business until 1872, primarily making flatware but also making some hollowware. Hollowware pieces often were bought in the metal from other manufacturers and then plated. Some of the hollowware plated by Redfield & Rice was made by Reed & Barton and some by other manufacturers. The company went bankrupt in 1872. Tip: Store Barbie dolls without the metal earrings. Eventually the metal will discolor the ears. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

A REPORT TO THE COMMUNITY__________________________HOW ARE WE DOING? Three months after distributing more than $551,000 in community impact grants including $35,500 in private donor funding the Southwest Florida Community Foundation took to the highways and byways to see how the 15 recipients have impacted their communities and the Southwest Florida region. In partnership with our donors and the incredible work of our grant ees, together we can count among our results 30 special-needs young adults have found a social and volunteer setting in the garden; 27 students are learning culinary skills; and food pantries are beginning to free the hungry from food insecurities and poverty. Here are their stories.Get Cooking!nPOWERs culinary career program provides lifelong career training. The Neighborhood Partners Offering Work and Educational Resources, or nPOWER, harnesses the power of partnership by providing career not just job training, literacy programs, life coaching and other resources under one roof. This collaborative program connects agencies looking to improve the financial stability in neighborhoods, so they can share resources, lessons learned, and move toward their goal together. A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | SPRING 2015 INSIDE: Regional grants 2 Grant Results 3 The Leverage Effect 4 our GIVING MATTERS On the Road Again The team at the Southwest Florida Community Foundation starts many of our conversations with, It is so great to see you again! That might not seem like an exciting opening line but the word again is what really makes the phrase special. Our team spends a great deal of time traveling throughout the Foundations fivecounty region to visit and meet with nonprofit leaders and their teams. Some of the visits are designed to learn more about our region while others give us the opportunity to meet residents who are benefiting from the nonprofits work. Our time together might focus on updating them on a project we are launching at the Foundation, hearing about their success and challenges, or discussing the results they are measuring for a Foundation-funded project. During the last couple of months our team has taken to the road again as part of our Regional Results Road Trip, visiting our 2014-2015 Community Impact Grant recipients. It is always energizing to be with nonprofit professionals particularly when we are able to see their important work in action and meet with those who are directly benefiting from their projects. It is important these road trips happen on a regular basis because time spent together builds bridges and relationships. One of the main reasons we hit the road often and with intention is the again part of seeing someone and catching up with what is happening in their world. This series of repeated agains builds trust, collaboration and camaraderie which are all important ingredients in making any kind of sustainable change in the community. The distance between the counties in our region can seem vast. Just make the drive from Clewiston to South Naples a time or two and you will understand. It is easy to get comfortable tucked away in Fort Myers and forget all the exciting things you can learn on the road. Of course we could have probably handled this by Skype, Google Hangout or just a good old-fashioned phone call but we would have missed the chance to look in their eyes and let them know how happy we were to see them and their amazing resultsagain! In this edition of Our Community we share some of the stories from our regional road trip. We are happy to share this journey with you.

| A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | SPRING 2015 2 | our Focusing first on the need for trained chefs and cooks in the areas growing restaurant scene, nPOWER is offering 12and 15-week culinary programs at the Heights Center and Pine Manor Improvement Center with the goal of breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty through training, education and social services A $100,000 community impact grant pays income-based tuition for 27 current students at both locations and provision purchases from the Harry Chapin Food Bank. Partners include Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, the Harlem Heights Center, Pine Manor Improvement Association, AMI Kids and the Literacy Council of the Gulf Coast. Just six weeks into the career training, one Heights Center student has already been promoted at work, several others have found jobs and two women are abuzz about opening their own bakeries, says Deb Mathinos, the centers director of lifelong learning. Ive seen increased self-confidence, pride and enthusiasm, she says. Some participants are getting employment even before finishing the program. Theres also a real sense of giving themselves an opportunity. The Heights 15-week program is designed in three five-week tiers. Once first-tier students advance, a new group of students begin their culinary training. Seven students started the program Jan. 21; another 10 students began their training in late February. Our students are 20 to 68 years old and everywhere in between, says Ms. Mathinos. They have a mix of experience levels but all of them have always been interested in the food service industry. We give them the skills to advance from entry-level employment. As one of just five Florida partners with Catalyst Kitchens, a network of organizations dedicated to empowering lives through job training, self-generated revenue and proper nutrition, the Harlem Heights program will eventually become self-sustaining by offering catering services. The Heights model also includes small business and entrepreneurial start-up and development. While theyre on site for two full days of training, students can also take advantage of the other services offered at the center. Everything is in-house and we can tailor programs so three of the women who just started can take ESL classes before they pick up their children from school, says Ms. Mathinos. We have students asking about GEDs and were also addressing certification requirements that require reading and math skills. Pine Manors 12-week culinary course puts 10 current students in the kitchen four hours a day, five days a week. For some of our participants cooking has always been a passion or a hobby and this program lets them see it as a career, says Dorothy Browning, program manager for Goodwills MicroEnterprise Institute who coordinates the nPOWER collaborative program. They see they can take their new skills and passion and move from the front line to sous chef and chef. Training at Pine Manor doesnt include a business component; however, culinary graduates can enroll in Goodwills six-week business program. The goal is to help the long-term unemployed realize they can commit to 12 weeks which can be intimidating, Ms. Browning says. They accomplish this and realize they can work. The impact of this program is to show people there is a way out of short-term jobs and see a career path. Food Connection Data Defines Hunger in Charlotte CountyPutting a Face on Poverty, rewriting the storyTechnology introduced to 13 food pantries in 2014 has put a face on Charlotte Countys hungry. Information generated by scanners and barcoded photo ID cards visitors display at the countys largest pantries is also telling a story many werent expecting. The reality is most people accessing pantry services are just one bump in the road from being homeless, says Angela Hogan, executive director and CEO of the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition, the lead agency for the Food Connection. The data is allowing us to find out whats going on and the issues those struggling with food security are dealing with. The information represents real people we need to connect to and relate. Initial grant money bought the hardware and laptop computers to link the first pantries in Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, Murdock and Englewood. It also pays James Thornton, a parttime data assistant, to install scanning systems and train volunteers.

SPRING 2015 | | A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | 3 o u r clients are issued IDs after an interview designed to collect information the Food Connection uses to identify high-frequency users and their circumstances. The year one report tells a story of hunger spanning all demographics from children and families with single or twoparent households, singles, military veterans, senior citizens and grandparents raising grandchildren. Food Connection knows 3,642 households visited the 13 food pantries 23,000 times. Seven percent of the households accounted for 8,642 of the visits, seeking food assistance at least 21 times during the year. The majority of household pantry clients, 84 percent, visited 10 times or less, and 11 percent of the households identified themselves as homeless. In year two, with a $32,626 grant from the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, the Food Connectionis linking 15 additional pantries and implement wrap-around services by training pantry volunteers in the Bridges out of Poverty program. It will use its reports to change the course of these stories and connect the hungry to additional community resources. We need to find out why theyre getting food so they arent just walking away without additional help, says Ms. Hogan. These are conversations that have to happen. During a recent visit to Port Charlottes Disciple Driven Ministries, one first-time visitor was escorted to a private interview. DDM serves 2,000 people each month and as a choice pantry allows participants to shop for food. We dont deny anyone, says Ross Bauernfeind, a volunteer for five years. Were finding out a lot of details about our clients and their living situations during the intake process. The computer also generates reports that show that latest needs. And its those reports that are giving the coalition a good look inside the stories behind hunger and the depths of poverty in Charlotte County. I think the consistent response was we were assuming it was a habit and realized it was different, says Mr. Thornton. Peoples finances dont match their expenses. Data is helping to drive decisions to better help the hungry of Charlotte County. It is a result of technology providing information so more people in need can get the services needed. Blooming in Naples Botanical GardenFriendships, volunteerism flourishes with garden therapy.Plant it and they will come. Since the opening of the quarter-acre Buehler Enabling Garden at the Naples Botanical Garden, the setting has bought the healing and calming powers of horticulture therapy to a growing number of visitors, among them the sight-impaired, Alzheimers patients and their caretakers, and special-needs students and young adults. The Community Foundations initial CIG in 2013-2104 provided funding to hire an education specialist to define the gardens audience and train volunteers and docents. Providing an immersive sensory experience has exceeded its organizers wildest dreams and continues to reach deeper into the community. The enabling garden has also become a role model for other botanical garden groups that hear of its stories of Alzheimers patients speaking for the first time in years and its scents stirring fond memories. The grant has allowed us to offer programs this year we thought would take four or five years to establish, says Chad Washburn, director of conservation and education at Naples Botanical Garden. In two years, we have more requests than we can handle and are reaching groups we never even thought about. The word is out and the need for our programs is greater than we could ever imagine. The gardens newest program provides volunteer and socialization opportunities for special-needs collegeaged adults. A few families came to us because there are not a lot of opportunities for their special-needs children to socialize once theyre out of high school, says Mr. Washburn. A local group is now bringing 30 young adult volunteers who help us keep the garden going, plant flowers and seeds. The goal is socialization and a sense of pride because theyre giving back to their community. This is something we didnt foresee. Special needs students in Collier County Public Schools pre-vocational programs also regularly visit the garden. It gives the community a chance to see what my kids can do, says Jackie Williams, a special education teacher at Lely High School. There are not many programs offered to the kids at this caliber. This garden is their safe haven. A second Community Foundation grant for $21,592 will allow Mr. Washburn and his education specialist to continue their work and mission to become self-sustaining by generating revenue from for-profit businesses such as assisted living facilities. Theres also talk of bringing the Gulf Coast Symphony Orchestra to the garden. As Joanne, a recent visitor and the caregiver of an Alzheimers patient, noted: I feel totally decompressed now. Exactly the intent for this nurturing space. For People and their PetsGulf Coast Humane Society expands low-cost veterinary services.The donation of a patientand surgery-ready building by a local plastic surgeon and nearly $30,000 from the Community Foundation will help the Gulf Coast Humane Society reduce the long waiting time for low-income pet owners seeking veterinary attention.

McFadden Jim Nathan Steve Pontiusas of June 30, 2014OUR COMMUNITY IS A PUBLICATION OF THE SOUTHWEST FLORIDA COMMUNITY FOUNDATION 8771 College Parkway Building 2, Suite 201 Phone: (239) 274-5900 www.FloridaCommunity.com The Board of Trustees of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation is made up of community leaders who are representative of the communities we serve. Trustees approve all grants made by the Community Foundation and ensure that the organization meets all laws and legal requirements. For a list of our trustees, go to our website at www.floridacommunity.com Copyright spend their money on groceries or something else. The societys new building on Swamp Cabbage Court just off Evans is located in the center of the organizations target demographic and offers five exam rooms compared to the current facilitys two. Grant money will help the organization with minor build-outs and the acquisition of additional equipment for full veterinary services offered at a fraction of the cost of private offices. The new facility, expected to open during the first quarter of 2016, will reduce appointment wait times and create four additional jobs, including a second veterinarian, two vet techs and a receptionist, says Ms. Galloway. When we move the clinic well likely extend our hours to help people who dont have flexibility in their jobs, she says. The old clinic will be used strictly for our low-cost spay and neuter program. We hope to reach out to other areas like Clewiston and LaBelle that dont have these resources. The 2014 grant also included a $5,000 private donation with a Donor Advised Fund from the Community Foundation. That was super cool, says Ms. Galloway. It gives us the feeling were starting to receive community awareness and people understand were here for the community and pet owners who receive public assistance or live paycheck to paycheck. The Baby BusinessNew interactive display at CROW showcases rescued baby wildlifeTheres probably nothing cuter than a baby otter looking up at you with milk on its face, says Linda Estep, lead veterinarian and executive director at the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife on Sanibel Island. On any given day, the majority of The Clinic for Regabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) patients are baby animals, birds or squirrels that fell from a nest or were abandoned by parents, sea turtles, gopher tortoises, snakes, otters and others that need nourishment to gain weight before being returned to the wild. Sometimes the whole baby room is just packed, says Dr. Estep. Many of the babies havent even opened their eyes yet. Visitors to CROWs education center learn about the variety of wildlife babies treated in the hospital. The new display, Babies are our Main Business, was funded by an $11,000 CIG, including $2,000 from a private donor with a Donor Advised Fund at the Community Foundation. It replaces an outdated exhibit and provides interactive features for children and adults to hold life-size replicas of otters, raccoons and other babies and pretend to feed them with bottles. Visitors also learn what each animal eats and how different species require customized care. People always ooh and aah at the size of the replicas, says Dr. Estep. Its important folks are aware of the plight of wildlife and realize the importance of an organization like CROW.

We invite you to go deeper with our stories and watch our videos about the grantees featured in this issue of Our Community by visiting our website or going to this specific link: floridacommunity. com/community-impact-2015The Southwest Florida Community Foundations last step in choosing projects to fund gives finalists three minutes to present their ideas in a process we call a compassionate shark tank. A growing number of philanthropists and donors are attending the presentations and stepping up with private funding. One local couple contributed an additional $5,000 toward the Gulf Coast Humane Societys new facility and $2,000 to a new display at The Clinic for Regabilitation of Wildlife (CROW). Berne Davis contributed $28,500 from her Donor Advised Fund at the Community Foundation to the Gulf Coast Symphonys Music Works! program for at-risk children. Passion stirs these decisions. Donors get really excited during the shark tanks, says Sarah Owen, foundation president and CEO. More donors are coming around a project and providing funding. It creates a lot of energy. Debra Faulk, vice president of community affairs for corporate giving in Wells Fargos nine-county Gulf Coast region, recently participated in the foundations arts shark tank. While the companys main corporate philanthropy focuses on education and affordable housing, attending opened my eyes to other possibilities to explore and the link between arts and education, she says. It provided another perspective. Wells Fargo, ranked as the second largest corporate philanthropist, is a sponsor of the foundations FutureMakers initiative, a program designed to get more high school seniors completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, FAFSA, and receive financial assistance for college or post-secondary training. Our program really gelled when the Community Foundation took hold of education with FutureMakers and FAFSA, says Ms. Faulk. It was something we could really insert ourselves into and provide support. Judy Pryor attended a compassionate shark tank on behalf of the womens group at St. Michaels Episcopal Church on Sanibel. It gave us exposure to all these organizations we might not have known about, she says. Were always looking for organizations that align with our mission of helping women and children. The church supports about 20 agencies annually through money raised from its successful Noahs Ark thrift shop. After touring Lighthouse of Southwest Florida and SalusCares Vince Smith campus, the women provided $5,000 to Lighthouses new program to teach social and life skills to visually impaired children ages 6 to 18, and $10,000 to pay the medical bills for teens treated by SalusCare. We were really looking to fund something to do with mental health and teenagers, says Ms. Pryor. The Episcopal women also funded the computer center at PACE Center for Girls. Theres a plaque on the door that will remind these girls every time they walk into the room, the women of St. Michaels are praying for them. Compassionate shark tanks are raising awareness and bringing more people to the conversation, says Ms. Owen. Were also building a network of donors who are starting to get to know each other, who want to see results and success. I applaud the shark tank concept because the foundation is bringing in nonprofits as cohorts, says Ms. Faulk. The beauty of the process is getting nonprofits to collaborate, think outside the box and not duplicate efforts. It leverages strengths and adds value.

The play by Nora and Delia Ephron consists of an intimate collection of monologues and vignettes that take a light-hearted and heartfelt peek into how clothes can conjure up the most significant memories of a womans life. The cast of 11 women includes veterans of the local stage along with several newcomers. Their musings over their most revered clothing and accessories reveal, among other things, the intricacies of the mother/daughter relationship, the truth about the men they loved and lost, and their ability to remain strong in the face of adversity. Local audiences will remember Jo Atkinson from The Naples Players production of Last of the Red Hot Lovers and from its ETC Readers Theatre productions, and Dot Auchmoody from Enchanted April. Ms. Auchmoody is also the company costume designer and has appeared in The Vagina Monologues benefit performances for Project HOPE at the Sudgen). Joyce Austin has performed in The Dr owsy Chaperon and Shout! Also returning to the Sugden stage are Darlene Miller (I Hate Hamlet and Im Herbert), Linda Mizeur (ETC Readers Theatre), Denise Villarreal (Gypsy and Distracted) and Carolyn Weinand (Our Town). Performing for the first time with The Naples Players are Caitlynn Crawford, Kate OConnor, Esther Snyder and Margo Crupi. Jessica Walck, assistant to the artistic director for The Naples Players, directs Love, Loss & What I Wore. Ms. Walck studied acting at The Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre in New York City and has been involved with TNP since 2004. She has directed four productions for the companys KidzAct and was assistant director for last seasons main stage production of Moon Over Buffalo. She teaches acting classes with TNPs adult education program and at Ave Maria University, where she is an adjunct professor. She has appeared onstage for TNP in God of Carnage, The Great American Trailer Park Musical, Les Miserables and Sylvia. The memories associated with a particular dress or a pair of shoes I wore as a child can be powerful for me, Ms.Walck says. When I read the script for L ove, Loss & What I Wore, I knew I wanted to direct it because I saw myself in every story I connected to each and every character in some way.

Can you tell me what happened? Kellie F., via FacebookA: When NBC passed on Feys hilarious Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Netflix swooped in and saved this brilliant comedy from obscurity. The Office alum Ellie Kemper stars as the eponymous Kimmy, who recently escaped from being held prisoner underground by a man who claimed the world above had ended in an apocalypse. Kimmy moves to New York City, where she tries to put her life back on track with the help of new employer Jacqueline Voorhees (played by the always wonderful Jane Krakowski), new roommate Titus Andromedon (the fabulous Tituss Burgess) and landlord Lillian Kaushtupper (the legendary Carol Kane). Season one consists of 13 episodes, all of which now are available for streaming on netflix.com. Q: Now that Sons of Anarchy is over, can you tell me what Katey Sagal has planned next? Glenn F., via emailA: The lovely and talented actress is set to reteam with Sons creator Kurt Sutter who also happens to be Ka teys hubby for the FX period drama The Bastard Executioner. The series centers on a former warrior/knight for King Edward I, Wilkin Brattle, who is overcome by the destruction of war and vows to lay down his sword. When violence finds him, hes forced to return to his violent ways. Australian actor Lee Jones plays Brattle, with True Blood alum Stephen Moyer playing his friend, Milus Corbett. Matthew Rhys, Sam Spruell, Flora Spencer-Longhurst, Darren Evans, Sarah White, Sarah Sweeney and Danny Sapani round out the cast. Production on the series began March 19, with no word yet on a premiere date. Q: Can you tell me the latest news on Cedar Cove? Richard O., via emailA: The phenomenally popular Hallmark Channel nighttime drama series, which stars Andie MacDowell as Olivia Lockhart, has been renewed for a third season and will return for new episodes later this summer. Although an exact date has not yet been given, Im thinking it will follow suit with the previous two season and premiere in mid-July. Dylan Neal will return as Jack Griffith, Olivias on-again/off-again love interest. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 C45 THE DISHThe Dish: White pizza The Place: Leonis Pizzeria 9503 Tamiami Trail, North Naples The Price: $18.99 for the large The Hours: 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. MondayThursday, 11 a.m. to midnight FridaySaturday, noon to 10 p.m. Sunday The Full Menu: leonispizza.com The Details: There are some days most often in the midst of a selfimposed, carb-restricted diet when nothing but pizza will do. Sure, you could dial a chain delivery service and get your gluten topped with canned sauce and processed cheese product. But why subject yourself to that when we have honest-to-goodness pizza for the same price point? For us, all it required was a 45-second car trip to Leonis to snag a delicious white pizza that set us back less than $20 (and sent us home with enough for lunch tomorrow). Our pie was a simple concoction of crispy and chewy crust, mozzarella, feta, tomatoes and basil, all enjoyed in an unassuming little storefont that doesnt need to bank on ambience to get the customers in the door. We really appreciated the tang of feta the pizzeria uses in place the creaminess of ricotta typically found in white pizza, and the light sprinkling of tomatoes and fresh basil made a pretty presentation when the server brought our pie to the table. One more thing: Like most New York pizza parlors, Leonis also offers a variety of other menu items: cold and oven-baked subs, pasta, Italian specialty dishes and Mexican food. Yes, you can also purchase burritos, tacos and fajitas should you feel your desire for pizza sink at the prospect of chips and salsa. Theres even a taco pizza if you cant decide.

Theres live jazz on the stage six nights a week. Enjoy it while dining on a charcuterie plate of artisan meats, cheese and house-pickled veggies, an Asian-style tuna cocktail or steamed buns with tender teriyaki chicken, caprese salad with heirloom tomatoes and the hearty Alto burger (topped with cheddar and a fried egg, tomatoes and lettuce). A simple but elegant dish was the salmon served with kale, watermelon and feta. For dessert, consider the Alto Trio: a harmonious combo of flourless chocolate torte, dark chocolate and orange mouse and white chocolate ice cream. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2014 The Bay House, 799 Walkerbilt Road, Naples; 591-3837Seated in the dining room gazing out on the tranquil Cocohatchee River, its hard to believe U.S. 41 is just yards away. The view is matched by superb food and polished service. Executive Chef Andy Hunter and his team do a masterful job of showcasing fresh seafood with a nod to carnivores as well. An appetizer called South of Broad features perfectly cooked fried green tomatoes, tangy goat feta, basil puree and tomato jam. A roasted beet and citrus salad, which included a delicious horseradish panna cotta, was an equally good start. The Coastal Pan Roast featured golden tilefish, shrimp, a Tampa devil crab, Carolina gold rice, baby vegetables, corn pudding and red wine sauce. Seafood pirlau, a Low Country version of bouillabaisse, contained scallops, shrimp, mussels, an outstanding housemade seafood sausage in a mild seafood brandade served with seafood fumet on the side. Florida Sunshine goat cheese cheesecake with pink grapefruit gelee and pools of blood orange and lemon curd, finished with tangy lime granita was an excellent end to a top-notch meal. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2014 Capers Kitchen & Bar, 2460 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples; 4317438Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Capers melds the best of diners and full-fledged restaurants, offering a casual atmosphere, a friendly staff, house-made baked goods and jams, house-smoked salmon, live entertainment in the bar on some evenings and menu items such as pork osso buco and wood-grilled filet mignon. Yum Yum Shrimp was a plateful of sweet and tangy fried shrimp. The house-smoked salmon was somewhat salty and dry, but mustard dill sauce helped on both counts. Crab cakes were full of lump crabmeat held together by what appeared to be bits of back fin, lightly breaded and sauted to a golden brown. Fresh mixed vegetables were tender-crisp and lightly seasoned. Cedarplanked salmon was nicely done, served with pomegranate molasses and rice studded with sliced almonds, dried cranberries and orange zest. For dessert: a slab of warm bread pudding with raisins, caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2013 Restoratives Caf, 20461 S. Tamiami Trail, Estero; 949-6715This breakfast and lunch restaurant is the creation of Chef Jay Gillmore, who trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Orlando and has worked at numerous Southwest Florida restaurants. He and his brother Tim run the artsy little caf. With its chalkboard menu, rustic lumber and impressive wall of locally produced paintings, Restoratives has a doit-yourself vibe backed by rock music that nonchalantly suggests this place has more hipster cred than your typical diner. Soup is a good bet, based on our basil tomato-herb and snakebite cheddar renditions; we liked the cheesy richness and the interplay of smoky Guinness barley and tangy cider in the latter. Among eight sandwich offerings, the brisket torta was well conceived and executed, with juicy, tender beef topped with melted queso blanco, pickled chilies, pico de gallo and sour cream. Dont pass up the fresh juice offerings. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2013 Veranda E, Escalante Hotel, 290 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 325-3474A secret garden hidden just off bustling Fifth Avenue South, Veranda E is an outstanding establishment serving creative food in a lush, subtropical setting. When the weather is good, reserve a table in the courtyard, where tables are dressed in white linens and overlook the hotel pool. Do not miss the Veranda E calamari, a dish that may have ruined me for all other calamari preparations. Done kung pao style, it is tenderized and breaded, fried to a golden brown and topped with peanuts, peppers, chives and a spicy-sweet sauce. Also good were the gulf shrimp with white stone ground corn grits and Creole bacon sauce; salad with Asian pear, Humboldt Fog cheese, organic baby greens and walnut vinaigrette; Hawaiian salmon with strawberry-basil relish and verjus rouge; boneless beef short ribs and house-made lemon ginger ice cream with fresh berries.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 19-25, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C47 CUISINEDougs expands to meet demand for Maine lobster rolls and moreEver since I wrapped my hands around the gustatory holy grail that is the lobster roll at Reds Eats in Wiscasset, Maine, I have been on a quest to discover a culinary counterpart closer to home. Roving restaurant reviewers Jane and Michael Stern of Roadfood.com hailed the Reds roll, made from a 1-pound lobster, as legendary, worth driving from anyplace. It certainly warranted driving 45 miles from Portland, where I was staying with friends, worth the hassle of summer tourist traffic, worth waiting in line with dozens of other shellfish-obsessed pilgrims. In the five years since my lobster roll enlightenment, I have sampled similar sandwiches around Southwest Florida. Some dripped with mayonnaise, some skimped on lobster meat, some were ridiculously priced. The closest I have come to Reds is served at Dougs Seafood in Bonita Springs. Doug and Rhonda Anderson opened their seafood market with a few tables in 2012 after selling fresh seafood out of a trailer for several years. Recently, they expanded into the storefront next door, roughly quadrupling the amount of seating for diners. Dougs is open from October through July 4, at which time the Andersons head back to Port Clyde, Maine, where they run a small take-out stand featuring fried-seafood baskets and lobster and crab rolls. They come by their seafood savvy genetically: At one time there were four generations of Andersons actively lobstering in Port Clyde. Their Bonita business is painted with charming murals depicting coastal scenes of lighthouses and crashing waves. Its bright and clean, but nothing fancy. The original storefront has a few tables and a big display case holding fresh fish from the Atlantic, such as halibut, monkfish and cod, as well as local catches like grouper and snapper. Prepared food is served on the other side of the store: two sizes of lobster rolls with warm, butter-soak ed meat or chilled meat tossed with a dab of mayo; Jonah crab and shrimp rolls; lobster, shrimp or crab wraps and fish tacos. A steam table holds trays of chowders, bisques and lobster macaroni and cheese. Thats the extent of the menu. You order at the counter, and they deliver in short order so theres not much to base a service rating on. Sandwiches come on plain white plates with a bag of potato chips and a cup of standard-issue cole slaw. Theres something irresistible about the Yankee simplicity of it all. Nothing detracts from the sense of purpose: to worship at the altar of seafood. The traditional lobster roll, chilled with mayo, comes in small ($11.95) and large ($20.95), on plain white rolls (toasted or not). It is about as pure a lobster experience as you can get this far from New England. The shellfish are sold live next door, so you know theyre fresh. Small or large, warm or chilled, the succulent, sweet lobster tumbles out of its bun. Ive tried both sizes. The smaller portion will satisfy most peoples appetites and budgets; but if youre in the mood to indulge, you wont regret upgrading to the big boy. Lobster meat is, of course, delicate and dear. So its right to prepare it without bells and whistles that might obscure the main attraction. There are no fillers or seasonings in the lobster roll at Dougs. But when it comes to other seafood sandwiches, such as a shrimp roll ($7.95 or $12.95), a little more leeway wouldnt be out of line. As the menu says, it consists of chopped gulf pinks with mayo. Salt and pepper, for starters, would brighten up this rather bland filling; some chopped fresh tarragon or a bit of diced celery would turn it into a real catch. Maybe thats not how they do it in Maine, but the shrimp comes from our gulf, so I dont think the locals would mind. We hadnt noticed the fish tacos on our previous visits, so we decided to try them (but failed to note the price). Big chunks of haddock were nicely grilled and perfectly moist. They were tucked into tortillas spread with a light garlic aioli, but they lacked panache. Fresh cilantro or a spoonful of salsa would have been just enough to liven them up. From the steam table, you can get Manhattan and New England clam chowder, seafood chowder and macaroni and cheese with lobster ($5 a bowl). Our favorites were the seafood chowder, a creamy soup that had bits of fish and scallops and clams, and the zesty Manhattan chowder thick with vegetables. The pasta dish had a decent amount of chopped lobster in it, but the cheese sauce tasted like a packaged mix. During season, Dougs also sells fresh seafood and lobster rolls at area farmers markets: Thursdays at the Coconut Point Farmers Market in Estero, Fridays at Lakes Park Farmers Market Fort Myers and Saturdays at the Bonita Springs Farmers Market at the Promenade at Bonita Bay. Well be returning to Dougs regularly for lunch until the Andersons head back up North for the summer. The lobster rolls alone are worth the hassle of our winter tourist traffic and the prospect of waiting in line and hoping for table. Email food and dining news to email@example.com.
