The largest, a female, hadnt been measured yet, but he estimated she was about 13 feet long and 80 pounds. Mr. Bartoszek and a team of four other scientists had extracted all of the snakes, by hand, from a gopher tortoise burrow in southeastern Collier County earlier in the day.SEE EXOTICS, A8
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 2-8, 2015 COMMENTARY Gunning for meteors Florida legislators, like those in Texas, Arkansas, Utah and a few other states, are struggling this spring to decide if students or faculty with concealedcarry permits for handguns should be allowed to bring their weapons onto college campuses. Actually, Florida legislators are not struggling, unlike university and college presidents in the state, many faculty members and students, and the chiefs of every campus police department, who hate the idea. But theyre all probably just a bunch of liberal patsies. So while they sit around mewling, along with a few Democrats in the legislature, a Republican bill to arm-up campuses has squirted into and right through both the House and the Senate Committee on Higher Education, like crap through a goose. If it gets through the Senate Judiciary Committee, it will only be up to Gov. Rick Scott to sign it into law. After that, everybody with a concealed weapons permit and there were 1,364,584 in the Sunshine State as of five weeks ago, according to the Florida Division of Licensing can enter academia carrying their pieces under their jackets: their 9 mills, their .45s, their .44 mags and .357s, not to mention their .38s and .40s, their widow-makers, their Saturday-night specials, their cannons, blasters, zips or equalizers, their mortars, their peashooters or their persuaders. When was the last time you were on a college campus? I visited two of them last week one in Florida and one in Colorado, a state that confuses the hell out of me even though I grew up in it. In Colorado, legislators voted to legalize marijuana recently, but they have also legalized guns on campus, one of seven states to do so, creating a kind of hippy-high-yiyo Wild West environment. I used to walk through that Boulder campus of pink sandstone buildings topped by red Spanish tiles dreaming of utopia and l ove, and staring at either the coeds or the mountains right above town. But last week I felt a terrible compulsion to run from one tree to another and to stare at nothing, so I wouldnt get shot. Some of these kids are probably armed, I thought in horror, studying the motley, half-stoned, mostly besotted assortment of undergraduate and graduate students stumbling along with the crazed and hopeful expressions of humans in high heat or with free passes to the ski slopes, or both. Run, I thought. For cover. But I felt nothing like that on one of the Florida campuses a few days later the lovely wetland home of Florida Gulf Coast University in Lee County. There, the students appeared freshly showered, cheerfully goal-oriented, and as peaceful as summer mornings in the park. To a man and woman they were unarmed, carrying books, cell phones and iPads, not bullets, magazines and pistols. I felt, once again, that I could dream as I walked, as long as I wasnt dreaming when I walked past the alligator sunning himself on the bank of a pond near the campuss public radio station. If he pulled that stunt on campus in Colorado and didnt freeze to death first, he might get shot. It comes down to this, I realized: There are manifest places that define the reason for any guns in the service of something other than food gathering. Those are the places without guns. Many people think of churches in this regard, and traditionally campuses of higher learning like other schools, like courthouses or libraries have also been viewed as the flowers of a culture or a country whose sacrifices have won them. Peace, along with the quietude or repose that always swells like silent music where fear is held at bay, is the harvest of such places. All of which made me wonder if, perhaps, Gov. Scott might recognize how valuable that harvest is, and reject the guns-on-campus bill when it comes across his desk. But then I recalled that in 2011, the governor a staunch ally of the National Rifle Association, a lobbying group for the very wealthy gun industry was pushing legislation that would have allowed open-carry in Florida, in effect scratching the word concealed right out of the states gun laws. I admired him for it and I know the National Rifle Association did, too, but for different reasons. I liked the idea because I figured the governor would have looked so good wearing two pearl-handled Colt revolvers holstered on a black, hand-tooled gun-belt made by Rocky Carroll, the legendary Texas boot maker whose black boots appear on the governors feet regularly, and are also worn by former President George W. Bush, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Texas Gov. Rick Perry, among many others. The NRA, on the other hand, liked the idea because the more guns it helps the gun industry sell, the richer they get. They do that by creating a climate of fear, as if the only thing between you and a guy with a rifle, a pistol and some high-capacity magazines (pitched and promoted by the NRAs aggressive salesmanship) is that peacemaker on your hip. Well, maybe. And its also possible that instead of a deranged gun-bunny, an off-course meteor will come whistling in and hit you on the head. Unless you shoot it out of the air first, of course. r t a d e t roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com Bring Your Highest Expectations LIVINGSTON ROADPINE RIDGE ROAD EXIT 107WHIPPORWILL LANE N

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 2-8, 2015 A diplomatic revolutionThe socialist government in France usually doesnt have much in common with congressional Republicans, for whom both France and socialism tend to be anathema. But the French, according to a Wall Street Journal report, are taking the toughest line among the powers negotiating with Iran over its nuclear program and are alarmed by the Obama administrations accommodating approach. Some U.S. officials, the Journal writes, privately believe France is seeking in part to maintain strong ties to Israel and to Arab countries deeply skeptical of Washingtons outreach to Tehran. The Iran deal will nullify the halfdozen U.N. resolutions calling on Iran to halt all uranium enrichment, at the same time the administration is floating the idea of going along with a new effort to isolate Israel at the U.N., in effect for the offense of re-electing Bibi Netanyahu. There are barely words for the perversity of this turnabout. It would be a step toward normalizing a rogue state and making a rogue state out of a normal country. It would be a rapprochement with a sworn enemy and a breach with a tried-and-true friend. It would be a diplomatic revolution in keeping with President Barack Obamas purported realism that has little regard for either our deepest-held values or coldblooded interests. In a Huffington Post interview, President Obama warned that the IsraeliPalestinian status quo is not a recipe for stability in the region. What stability? The Israeli-Palestinian conflict manifestly has nothing to do with the collapse of Syria into a catastrophic civil war, or with ISIS establishing control over a swath of territory in Iraq and Syria, or Yemen descending into chaos. Israel holds free-and-fair elections in which Arabs can freely vote, even if Netanyahu made an ill-advised electionday comment about them; in country after country, Sunni and Shia forces kill and maim one another in a vicious fight for dominance by force. Israel builds settlements (mostly in areas that will stay part of Israel in any peace deal); Bashar al-Assad drops cluster bombs on people, and has reportedly returned to using chemical weapons. It doesnt take great discernment to see the differences. It takes only a modicum of perspective, which President Obama cant muster as he sets about engineering a rupture with our only democratic ally in the Middle East. Obama is often accused of amateurism and drift in his foreign policy. In a compelling essay in the online publication Mosaic, Michael Doran argues that the president has always had a strategic vision, with an opening to Iran at its heart. This explains, Doran contends, the presidents muted response to the 2009 democratic protests in Iran; his willingness to allow Iran to take a large hand in the Syrian civil war and hesitance to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels; his gift of sanctions relief to the Iranians, as well as major concessions in the ongoing negotiations; and his accommodation of a heavy military role for Iran in the fight against ISIS in Iraq. The public campaign against the leader of Israel fits with the overall scheme. It is a testament to the folly and radicalism of this project that even the French have misgivings. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.The costs of war, the price of peaceWhat price would you pay not to kill another human being? At what point would you commit the offenses allegedly perpetrated by Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was charged Wednesday with desertion and misbehavior before an enemy. Bowe Bergdahl was a private when he left his post in Afghanistan, under circumstances that are still unknown to the public, and was captured by the Taliban. They imprisoned him for five years, until he was released in a controversial prisoner swap negotiated by the Obama administration. Five Taliban members who were held for years at Guantanamo Bay were released to house arrest in Qatar in exchange for Bergdahl. He now faces a court-martial and potentially life in prison. Meanwhile, the architects of the disastrous wars in Iraq and Afghanistan remain untried, while a new report asserts that up to 1.3 million people have been killed in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan in the first 10 years of the socalled war on terror. The report is called Body Count and is published in the U.S. by Physicians for Social Responsibility. It has been politically important to downplay Allied forces responsibility for the massive carnage and destruction in the region, writes San Francisco doctor Robert M. Gould in the reports foreword. He told me: We need to take full responsibility for the true cost of war as we are preparing to continue our involvement in Afghanistan and deepen our involvement in Syria and Iraq. Theres great anger throughout the region about our involvement and the underplaying here of what the true costs are in terms of death and destruction. This report was released just as Afghanistans new president, Ashraf Ghani, was welcomed at the White House by President Barack Obama. Obama announced that he is slowing the planned departure of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, leaving 9,800 soldiers at least through the end of 2015. It is my judgment, its the judgment of General (John) Campbell and others who are on the ground, that providing this additional time frame during this fighting season for us to be able to help the Afghan security forces succeed is well worth it, Obama said. Americas longest war continues, with no end in sight. Ghani visited the Pentagon during his time in Washington, as well as Arlington National Cemetery, where he laid a wreath of flowers to honor the fallen U.S. soldiers. Body Count provides a startling update to the previously widely accepted estimate of casualties from the war on terror in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The figure is approximately 10 times greater than that which the public, experts and decision makers are aware. ... And this is only a conservative estimate, the report stated. The total number of deaths in the three countries ... could also be in excess of two million, whereas a figure below one million is extremely unlikely. The report, writes former U.N. Deputy Secretary General Hans von Sponeck in its introduction, must be seen as a significant contribution to narrowing the gap between reliable estimates of victims of war, especially civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan and tendentious, manipulated or even fraudulent accounts. These have in the past blurred the picture of the magnitude of death and destitution in these three countries. Von Sponeck who, in 1957, was one of West Germanys first conscientious objectors also served as the U.N.s Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq at the time when crushing sanctions were killing thousands of people in that country. He resigned in protest of the sanctions. We have not heard former POW Bowe Bergdahl explain, in his own words, how or why he left his post that June night in 2009. If he is subjected to the same military justice that Chelsea Manning received, we may be denied access to Bergdahls voice completely through the trial. In Mannings court-martial, his voice was only heard because of a leaked, clandestinely made recording. The late Rolling Stone journalist Michael Hastings reported on Bergdahl, quoting emails from Bowe to his parents, before he was captured, that were harshly critical of the U.S. occupation. Bowe wrote, I am sorry for everything here. Afghan President Ghani honored thousands of U.S. military dead at Arlington National Cemetery. Will his gesture inspire President Obama, or his successor, to travel to the many cemeteries swollen with war dead in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan?

Founded in 1976 as an end-of-season celebration of The Dock Restaurants first year, the race now draws thousands of spectators by land and bay to watch the friendly yet spirited competition among teams of corporate icons, ambitious amateurs, truly tenacious and practically professional paddlers. This is one event thats just for the fun of it, Vin DePasquale, founder of The Dock and Riverwalk at Tin City restaurants, says. A parade of theme-decorated canoes and costumed participants vying for a $1,000 prize is a crowd favorite year after year. This years theme: The Hunger Games. The parade launches at 11 a.m. at Crayton Cove, with State Sen. Garrett Richter serving as grand marshall and Mr. DePasquale and Jerry Conti emceeing the action. For the second year in a row, Lila Prince will sing the national anthem. An additional and important element of the GDCR every year is a $5,000 grant awarded to a local charity. This years beneficiary is Collier Harvest, a source of nutritious food provisions for more than 40 agencies that feed thousands of families in the community. In addition to The Dock and Riverwalk restaurants, sponsors this year include The Lutgert C ompanies/ Lutgert Insurance/Premier Sothebys International Realty, Wiegold One-Hour Air Conditioning & Heating, Cove Inn, Renda Broadcasting (Mix 104.7-FM and WGUF 98.9-FM), Naples Extreme Family Fun Spot, Childs & Childs Cosmetic Dentistry and the city of Naples. Race rules and registration forms are available online at greatdockcanoerace.com as well as at the Dock and Riverwalk at Tin City, Cambier and Fleischmann parks and the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce Visitors Information Center at 900 Fifth Ave. S. Entrants must be 18 years of age or older, unless competing in the Next Generation class (12-17 years old with parent/guardian), and those in the Truly Tenacious category must be 65 years or older. The registration fee for each 2-person team is $40, which includes a T-shirt for each competitor. A limited number of rental canoes are available by calling 404-6718.

The two dropped their conventional lives last March, picked up their pooch Oliver and set sail for a year of island hopping and cruising the Caribbean aboard LAHO, their 1982 Endeavor 37 B Plan sailboat. We caught up with Ms. Young via email and posed some questions about the couples adventure. With just a few more places on their itinerary, she told us they plan to drop anchor back in Naples before the June 1 start of hurricane season. Until then, however, the adventure continues. Who first brought up the idea of ditching land and setting sail? What was the others reaction? A few years ago, we were sitting on the beach at Wiggins Pass one beautiful Sunday afternoon (and probably complaining about our jobs a little), when Jereme turned to me and said, What if we were to just quit our jobs to live on a sailboat in the Caribbean? I literally laughed out loud. Two years later, we had purchased our dream sailboat and, several months after that, turned in our notices at work. We havent lost sight of where we want to go in life and have lofty goals in mind We simply chose to enjoy a little detour while we have the means and ability to do so. What were your lives in Naples like before the trip? Our lives were normal. We worked regular corporate jobs, Jereme as a professional engineer and myself as a marketing and brand manager. I also own and operate Kimberly Joy Photography, a family photography studio. We both spent most of our free time with family and friends Otherwise, Jereme could be found working on some home improvement project or another, and I loved volunteering at Humane Society Naples. How did it feel to go through the motions of putting your life on hold? It was a whirlwind of emotions. The excitement and anticipation of what lay ahead felt amazing, and the sense of freedom was unreal Sharing this news with family and friends was a bit more interesting. We were both quite nervous to tell our wonderful, loving parents that we were giving up perfectly great careers to live on a sailboat in the Caribbean. But they took the news in stride. Both sets of parents encouraged us to go for it. Logistically, simplifying was easier than expected. It took a month or two to sell off nearly all of our worldly possessions. We literally whittled down an entire three-bedroom home into one small storage closet that now houses our most prized possessions. Sure, it was tough at times, and I actually shed a few tears over a pizza cutter when garage sale time rolled around. Clearly, the pizza cutter was representative of the emotions and stress of parting with our belongings But I got over it pretty quickly. Any obstacles at sea? Near calls? Epiphanies? Stand-out experiences? Yes. Literally, on our Day 2 as cruisers we hit a crab pot while sailing from Naples to Marathon in the Florida Keys. Little did we know they are scattered like land mines along the coast of the Florida Keys and can very easily wreak serious havoc on a motoring vessel.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 2-8, 2015 Its been a very snakey day, Mr. Bartoszek said. Every day on this project is a surprise. Its widely known that Florida has, by far, the worst invasive reptile problem in the United States and state agencies cannot keep up with efforts to eradicate many of the most injurious species in the area. Most of these invasions result from released or escaped pets that thrive in subtropical environments, which has inspired the federal governments crackdown on exactly what creatures Florida residents can purchase and keep for companionship. On March 6 of this year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Commission announced its latest move to combat the Sunshine States rampant reptile problem: Four more species of exotic snakes have been banned from being imported and sold as pets. Snake enthusiasts can say goodbye to their hopes of owning a reticulated python, DeSchauensees anaconda, green anaconda or a Beni anaconda. Even worse, reptiles are only part of the problem. An influx of exotic animals of all kinds are here to stay, leaving land managers with the task of managing populations rather than giving them the boot. Some species are without a doubt a nuisance and threat to native species; others, however, could be beneficial or neutral to our Southwest Florida environment it just takes time and resources to figure it out. According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Floridians spend about $500 million each year to combat and research wild invasive species, $50 million of which goes specifically to eradicating injurious plants and weeds.Burmese pythonsOver the last few years, the Conservancys Mr. Bartoszek and his colleague, Paul Andreadis of Denison University in Ohio, have been leading a study of Southwest Floridas Burmese python population with the goal of providing local land managers tools to deal with these new apex predators. The snakes, classified as one of the five largest basilisks in the world, are thriving and adapting to Collier Countys landscape with ease, to the point that few experts believe they can still be eradicated from the wild. One of the researchers first, and key, findings is that Burmese pythons have figured out how to adapt to cold weather by seeking shelter to breed in gopher tortoise and armadillo burrows. The female they recently found is referred to as a scentinel snake because she had been previously tagged with a radiotelemetry device so researchers can track her movements. Mr. Bartoszek and his associates found her in a burrow, actively breeding with six male pythons. When you have a scentinal snake more than likely a female with a tag that is receptive she will lead us to other breeding males, he said. This time of year we know theyll be looking for each other. Because of the pythons elusive nature, its practically impossible to know how many are established locally or in South Florida. There could be anywhere from 10,000 to 100,000 in Florida, all the way up to the Alabama and Georgia borders, but the current breeding population probably only extends to Lake Okeechobee, Mr. Bartoszek said. The ability to escape short-lived freezes has been crucial to the snakes survival in South Florida, but its difficult to tell whether they have been able to expand their territory any further. Utilizing the underground refuges of burrowing mammals might help Burmese pythons expand their range further to the north than previously thought possible, Mr. Bartoszek said. If these microhabitats allow them to survive through a freeze event, then the snakes will continue to adapt to their new environment and gain ground.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 2-8, 2015 NEWS A9 but experts at the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission think the problem was exacerbated when a breeding facility in Homestead was destroyed in Hurricane Andrew in 1992. However, Southwest Floridas crop might be from a different introduction to the wild, Mr. Bartoszek said. Some evidence is leading us to believe that, but it isnt proven, he continued. Im becoming more and more confident thats what were seeing in Southwest Florida. At the same time, the east coast group is coming in and overlapping. At some point researchers will have to perform genetic tests to confirm their suspicions, he added.In 2010, the state of Florida amended a previous statute that stopped the sale of certain species of pets, adding Burmese pythons and a variety of other reptiles to the forbidden list. Residents who acquired one of the reptiles before July 1 of that year were allowed to keep their pet, but are now required to maintain an ownership license. Reptile dealers, researchers and exhibitors, such as zoos, must also maintain a license to own reptiles of concern. Its still difficult to know whether the pythons are a unilaterally bad addition to our local ecosystems, but it is true that they have almost no natural predators in the Everglades or the highland areas that Mr. Bartoszek and his team have been studying. Alligators might be the snakes only competition, and the two species eat each other in relation to the their size and development. Farther afield, pythons have been found to eat a few endangered species, including the Key Largo woodrat, and protected species of wading birds. Some endangered species may benefit, Mr. Bartoszek said. If raccoons eat sea turtle eggs and snakes eat raccoons, it would be good for the sea turtles. Researchers recent findings point to a number of applications. For instance, its feasible that land managers could eventually have a device to trap the snakes in the burrows they invade, Mr. Bartoszek said. In the case of tortoise burrows, which it is illegal to disrupt, its most likely the managers would have to acquire special permits, however. Nevertheless, environmental officials and biologists now know to find the pythons in burrows during Floridas dry season in order to control the population. The effort to understand pythons impact on Southwest Floridas native species extends to Florida Gulf Coast University, where herpetologist John Herman, who contributed to the burrow research with Mr. Bartoszek, is hoping to mount a study on the pythons effect on two native snakes: the federally threatened eastern indigo snake and the eastern diamondback rattlesnake. They live in the same relative ecosystem as the python is invading, and they seem to intersect at the use of gopher tortoise burrows, Mr. Herman said. Although a python would not eat either of the native snakes, he added, theyre going to be competing for food resources and for space. Mr. Hermans proposed study would require that native snakes rather than Burmese pythons be tagged. Neither he nor any of his colleagues have any idea what the results could be, but its an important step to figuring out what exactly the pythons plan to do now that theyre here. Hopefully, at the end of this and with the knowledge that theyve gathered, we can put it together to make a really nice cohesive picture, he said. Mr. Bartoszek is certain, however, that the public does not need to be frightened of pythons or do more than report sightings. Relatively few have been found in urban landscapes, even though the snakes do use manmade canals and water features to move easily through eastern Collier County. These animals are here through no fault of their own, he said. Im more afraid of driving down 41 during season than I am about any snake or alligator, bar none. Period. Thats the most dangerous thing out there. These animals arent interested in us. Theyre just doing what they do well: repopulating the earth.LionfishAdults of a certain age may remember the fascination of visiting a fancy restaurant as children and watching the majestic and aggressive lionfish flit around a massive saltwater aquarium. Todays Florida kids dont have to find a carefully curated collection of marine animals to sneak a peek at a lionfish. In recent years, the fish has made a break from tanks and now run rampant off the Atlantic coast and are found in increasing numbers in the Gulf of Mexico in Southwest Florida. Are you going to see them every time you stick your head underwater? No, said Florida Sea Grant Agent Brian Fleuch. But in the past two or three years, the increase is impressive. The flashy fish is widely recognizable for its garishly fanned fins and 18 poisonous spines. Lionfish can grow up to 18 inches in habitats where it is not indigenous, and in addition to being large and aggressive, they also reproduce at a remarkable rate. Unlike native species, lionfish can reproduce within a year of hatching. Female fish can release 5,000 to 20,000 eggs every four days to float on ocean currents to new locations. The big concern over all is that these guys can reproduce year-round, Mr. Fluech said. Like many other invasive species in Florida, experts believe the lionfish invasion started with only a handful of pet fish released into the ocean. From this point, the fish followed Atlantic currents to spread up the coast all the way to Rhode Island and down throughout the Caribbean and eventually into the Gulf of Mexico. The first reported sighting in Florida was in Dania Beach in 1985. The lionfish is native to the Indian and Pacific oceans, where they have a variety of natural predators such as sharks, large eels and grouper. Unlike their south Asian home, the Atlantic Ocean and neighboring water bodies have no animals likely to control the lionfish population. The fear, as with all invasive predators, is that the fish will compete with native marine species for habitats and gulp up everything in the food chain below it. Theyre voracious predators, Mr. Fleuch said. Thats certainly a concern for most of our biologists, the impact on commercial fisheries. Most concerning of all is research published last year by Zack Jud, a marine ecologist at Florida International University, who discovered that lionfish are capable of moving into estuaries where much of South Floridas marine life hatches and grows to maturity. The estuaries are nursery grounds for a lot of species we depend on, Mr. Fleuch said. That would be a major concern in terms of ecological and economical impact. The rapid spread of the noxious species caught the attention of local officials when an angler snagged one with a hook and line (an unlikely method of capture) in 2013 within 100 yards of the beach in front of The Ritz-Carlton Beach Resort. In response, Collier County commissioners effectively lobbied the state of Florida to lift a spearfishing ban in state waters unique to Collier to effectively combat the lionfish spread. Although most lionfish remain far offshore, people are increasingly finding them near onshore structures, according to Bill DAntuono, president of the Naples Spearfishing League. Someone found one at the (Naples) pier while they were diving, he said. Anywhere you find structure or anywhere big fish are, youll find lionfish, but you find more of them the farther out you go. In the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean, lionfish are partial to reefs, shipwrecks and what is called live bottom, or seafloor that is exposed limestone. Southwest Florida doesnt have much of that habitat close to shore, unlike the east coast. The reef on the other coast is massive and only two miles out, Mr. DAntuono said. Here, its just so far out and not many people are going out there to dive. We do it because were kind of crazy. Because much of the Southwest Florida lionfish population resides offshore, its even more important that locals be able to spearfish within the nine miles between shore and federal waters. Spearfishing is the only reliable method of capturing the fish, as they do not typically respond to hook-and-line capture or bagging. Its good that we can go after them now, Mr. DAntuono said. In a year, I got about 30 lion fish, personally. At a lionfish derby last year, he added, spearfishermen nabbed 55 in one day.Nile monitorsUnlike the other invasive species being studied in Southwest Florida, Cape Corals Nile monitor lizards are an urban problem that has been creeping out residents for almost 20 years. These smart, temperamental reptiles eat pets, climb roofs and frighten children as they devour pretty much anything that will fit in their mouths. Theyre a nuisance for sure, said Todd Campbell, associate biology professor at University of Tampa. Its not like theyre in the middle of the Everglades eating wood storks. People are afraid of these things and rightly so. Nile monitors are popular pets the second most popular African monitor sold in the U.S., according to Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission that at some point were released in Cape Coral. They can grow up to 7 feet long and are best known for their hunting capabilities, intelligence and surly demeanor. They are the largest lizard in Africa and span the largest amount of territory, usually found in the vicinity of water bodies from desert fringes to rainforests. In Cape Coral, the monitors burrow along canals and can often be seen atop seawalls. Mr. Campbell mounted a study of the monitors in 2003 to track their activities and movement throughout the area. Now that city of Cape Coral has an established method of trapping the lizards, it sends Mr. Campbell euthanized remains for study. He has been surprised by the number of amphibians and reptiles the monitors are eating, having expected they would have plenty of opportunity to replicate their native diet of invertebrates, small animals and ground birds. Cape Coral, for example, has Floridas largest population of burrowing owls. Its a regular occurrence that we find whole clutches of turtle eggs in a Nile monitor, Mr. Campbell said. One had 23 eggs, which is probably two clutches. At the moment, hes attempting to identify which species of turtles the monitors are targeting. While Cape Coral isnt a nesting area for sea turtles, he is concerned about the monitors ability to quickly travel long distances and their advanced swimming abilities. Its possible they could establish themselves on Sanibel Island, he said, which contains rich and protected habitat for many endangered and threatened species that would be part of the monitors natural diet. Although the lizards have been spotted on the island in the past, they dont seem to have established a breeding population, he said. There are also other local spots within reach of Cape Coral where sea turtles nest. I would absolutely stake my reputation on the notion that if these monitors were in an area where sea turtle nesting occurs, all they would have to do is walk out on the beach and smell those eggs, he said. Would it be as bad as raccoons? Youd have to have a lot of monitor lizards to be a problem. Trapping is currently managed by Harry Phillips, an environmental bioloSEE EXOTICS, A10 CITY OF CAPE CORAL / COURTESY PHOTONile monitor lizards are a frightening annoyance in Cape Coral.

Its really a situation of maintenance and a control effort, he said. Were beyond that point in terms of how long theyve been in Cape Coral. Theyre in too many little pockets for us to get rid of them.Feral pigsOften referred to as the king of pests in Japan, wild boar have been rooting their way through the United States for centuries, after having been brought to North America in 1539 with Hernando de Soto. Today, feral pigs cause up to $1 billion per year in damage to natural habitats and agricultural crops in 39 states. Florida has the second largest population, behind Texas. In Collier County, experts have expressed concern over the pigs overtaking islands in the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and eating up sea turtle eggs. Having at one time populated mostly inland areas, urban development seems to have forced the pigs to swim to less-populated areas where the protected turtles return each season to lay eggs. Theyre probably on just about every island in the Rookery Bay area that has enough elevation for them, said David Addison, a senior biologist with the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. They are a real threat to the sea turtles. In 2007 they got into the nests, and weve seen an increase over the last few years. Once a member of the pig population figures out the egg puzzle, he continued, they will continue to return to the beach and decimate nests. Its like they threw a grenade in (the nests). Its like they blew it up, Mr. Addison said about the aftermath of a wild boars raid on a turtle nest. Animals are OCD when it comes to that stuff. If they find a source, they keep coming back. Rooting and wallowing, which severely damages native plants and transports invasive seeds, seems to be the pigs most destructive behavior. They are also vectors of disease that can infect wildlife, livestock and occasionally humans with pathogens including swine flu, cholera, tularemia, pseudorabies and anthrax. Responsibility for managing the pigs and other invasive species in local state lands falls on Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, which is currently trapping hogs in areas of concern, especially on Keewaydin Island and other barrier islands where sea turtles nest. Resources for such initiatives are limited, however; in the past, the reserve has hired private contractors and federal agencies to perform those duties. One obstacle to controlling the pig population is that the species is so entrenched in the United States that it would take a massive multi-state effort to eradicate them. In addition to being present in most states and Canada, pigs are an incredibly hardy species that can adapt to a variety of hardships. The current population is a hybrid of the Eurasian population brought over during the Spanish colonial era and escaped domesticated pigs. Theyre very tough, theyre very adaptable, and theyre here to stay, Mr. Addison said. Youre not going to get rid of them. Now its all about somehow getting the numbers under control, he added. In terms of exterminating, theres no way.What to doBecause the invasive species problem is so pervasive in the area, environmental stewards rely on cooperative efforts between agencies and the public to track and manage all manner of non-native species. Homeowners are more likely to run into a plant problem than an animal problem (unless they live in Cape Coral), and are encouraged to report sightings by calling (888) IVE-GOT1 or visiting ivegot1.org. The public is urged to not eliminate an animal, particularly a predator, themselves. Conservation organizations and state agencies follow specific protocols for the capture and elimination of individual animals, and those steps often require permits and licenses.

The open caseload grew to 31,367,915 by the end of that year a quantity that, if all of the countrys judges, working around the clock, each resolved 100 cases an hour, it would still take 35 years to clear. Bloomberg Business Week reported in January that lawyers needlessly fatten the backlog with multiple filings, mainly to jack up their fees (and thus encouraging extortion threats, in place of law, as the preferred method of resolving disputes). Death-penalty opponents have long sought a clear-cut case in which an obviously innocent person was wrongfully executed, and unsurprisingly, the great state of Texas appears about to provide that, in Cameron Todd Willingham (convicted in 1992 and executed in 2004). Since his trial, the arson evidence proving murder has been thoroughly discredited, and recently an ex-cellmates 1996 letter surfaced demanding that his own prosecutor comply with the sentencereduction he was promised if he claimed that Willingham had confessed to him (and in fact the cellmates sentence was substantially reduced after he wrote the letter, though the cellmate later appeared grievously remorseful). Prosecutor John Jackson is facing a state investigation for not disclosing the sentencing promise before trial. Elf Justice: Public policymaking in the United States is often gridlocked by recalcitrant ideologues, but at least administrators are not constrained by elves, as in Iceland. After seven years of controversy, the country s Road Administration recently approved a new pathway near Reykjavik that had been delayed by a troublesome, 70-ton boulder in the rightof-way which could not be dislodged because it is believed to be a church for the countrys legendary hidden people. The elves leading spokeswoman, Ragnhildur Jonsdottir, finally declared, to officials relief, that the elves had accepted the boulders relocation (to the side of the road), having been preparing for this for a long time, moving their energy to the new location. Four weeks ago, News of the Weird noted that a United Nations representative opposed a suggestion to open certain meetings to the public, fearing that it would only invite spectators in the gallery to throw mayonnaise at the delegates. However, two months earlier (and unknown to News of the Weird), the Belgian prime minister, defending his countrys austerity measures, had faced a group of protesters who had rained upon him french fries topped with mayonnaise. Three months ago, News of the Weird highlighted a London mans agreement to pay the equivalent of $500 for surgery on a nondescript office-aquarium goldfish, to relieve its constipation. Subsequently, however, veterinarians in Scotland (charging the equivalent of $750) performed cancer surgery on two goldfish, and in September 2014, in Melbourne, Australia, a goldfish received brain surgery (for the apparent bargain of $200).Recurring themes Japan may have its cat restaurants (where loaner felines lounge during meals) and even its penguin bar in Ikebukuro, and London (as reported here a month ago) an experimental owl cafe (with specially domesticated birds perched on diners shoulders), but not to be outdone, an entrepreneur in Seoul, South Korea, guesses that his Thanks to Nature Cafe will be a big hit with sheep wandering through the dining room. (After all, according to the lunar calendar, 2015 is the Chinese zodiac Year of the Sheep.)

Home Unimprovement: Recent cases to add to the classic Dont DIY Files: (1) Fred Horne of Columbus, Ohio, burned down his house in February trying to smoke the bedbugs out of his couch. Only that one piece of furniture caught fire, but carrying it out of the house, Horne got stuck in a doorway, and the blaze spread. (2) Near Darwin, Australia, in February, an unnamed woman living in an RV came faceto-face with a snake and decided to encourage the serpent to leave by lighting a fire beneath the RVs floor. The vehicle was destroyed but, said the police superintendent, we dont know what happened to the snake. Supporting the Troops: Federal law prohibits foreclosures and repossessions (unless by court order) against activeduty military members, but Americans would hardly know that from observing creditors. A 2012 Government Accountability Office report found at least 15,000 violations by U.S. financial institutions, small and large, including J.P. Morgan Chase (violations News of the Weird reported in 2011). In February, auto lender Santander Consumer USA agreed to pay $9.35 million to settle charges that it illegally seized cars of 760 service members (some while deployed in war zones) over the last five years.

Research shows teen drivers most distracted by passengers, cell phones SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYComprehensive research conducted into crash videos of teen drivers has found significant evidence that distracted driving is likely much more serious a problem than previously known, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. The foundations extensive video analysis finds that distraction was a factor in nearly six out of 10 moderate-tosevere teen crashes, which is four times as many as official estimates based on police reports. Teens have the highest crash rate of any group in the United States. About 963,000 drivers ages 16-19 were involved in police-reported crashes in 2013, which is the most recent year of available data. These crashes resulted in 383,000 injuries and 2,865 deaths. For the foundations study, researchers analyzed the six seconds leading up to a crash in nearly 1,700 videos of teen drivers taken from in-vehicle event recorders. The results showed that distraction was a factor in 58 percent of all crashes studied, including 89 percent of road-departure crashes and 76 percent of rear-end crashes. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration previously has estimated that distraction is a factor in only 14 percent of all teen driver crashes. Access to crash videos has allowed us to better understand the moments leading up to a vehicle impact in a way that was previously impossible, says Peter Kissinger, president and CEO of the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. The in-depth analysis provides indisputable evidence that teen drivers are distracted in a much greater percentage of crashes than we previously realized. The most common forms of distraction leading up to a crash by a teen driver included: Interacting with one or more passengers: 15 percent of crashes Cell phone use: 12 percent of crashes Looking at something in the vehicle: 10 percent of crashes Looking at something outside the vehicle: 9 percent of crashes Singing/moving to music: 8 percent of crashes Grooming: 6 percent of crashes Reaching for an object: 6 percent of crashes This research confirms that passengers and cell phones are the two most prevalent distractions for teen drivers involved in crashes, says Matt Nasworthy, traffic safety consultant for the Auto Club Group of AAA. The findings, he adds, make a strong case for states to review their graduated driver licensing and distracted driving laws. AAA recommends that state laws prohibit cell phone use by teen drivers and restrict passengers to one non-family member for the first six months of driving. Graduated driver licensing laws allow new drivers to gain practical experience in a relatively safe environment by restricting their exposure to risky situations. Thirty-three states have laws that prevent cell phone use for teens; 18 states have passenger restrictions meeting AAAs recommendations. Parents play a critical role in preventing distracted driving. AAA recommends that parents teach teens about the dangers of cell phone use and restrict passengers during the learning-to-drive process. Before parents begin practice driving with teens, they should create a parent/ teen driving agreement that includes strict ground rules related to distraction. AAA offers a comprehensive driver education program, where teens can learn specifically how using a cell phone affects driving abilities and increases their crash risk.

Florida consumer confidence reaches a 10-year high in March THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAConsumer sentiment among Floridians rose in March by more than three points to 96.8, the highest reading in 10 years, according to a monthly University of Florida survey. All five components that make up the index increased. Florida consumers are particularly optimistic about the future, says Chris McCarty, director of UFs Survey Research Center in the Bureau of Economic and Business Research. The three components that are forward-looking are much higher than they have been for quite some time. Expectations of personal finances a year from now increased 2.4 points to 103.6, the highest level since August 2004. Perceptions of U.S. economic conditions over the next year rose 1.2 points to 94.6, while expectations of U.S. economic conditions over the next five years increased 3.4 points to 93.6, the highest since July 2004. On the question of whether now is a good time to buy big-ticket items such as a car or appliance, March saw an uptick of 7.4 points to 106.1. Overall the index reflects a Florida consumer who is really feeling a recovery, Mr. McCarty says. While increases in the overall index were broad-based across age and income groups, there were some differences in some components. Gains in the component comparing personal finances now with a year ago were higher among households making less than $50,000 (up 4.5 points) compared with those making more than $50,000 (down 1.9 points). An even greater difference was noted in expected U.S. economic conditions over the next five years: Those making under $50,000 per year decreased slightly (down 2 points), while those making more than $50,000 surged up (9.4 points). This reflects lower-income households who have made some gains recently but are less optimistic about the future, Mr. McCarty says, adding, Upper-income households appear to be happy with future trends. Floridians at various income levels may have different reasons for a positive outlook. Those invested in the stock market have cause for optimism as stock values recovered from a midmonth decline and approach record levels. For lower-income Floridians, gas prices remain low and are likely to stay there for a while because of the strengthening U.S. dollar, the currency used for international oil exchange. Other economic data for Florida are

A major qualification is a passionate devotion to the field of journalism/media as a career. Requirements: at least a 3.0 GPA from the student's high school or college, will attend or currently attend an accredited college/university, be a fulltime student and major in the overall journalism/media communications field. Any student who meets the criteria and is interested in applying for a scholarship should request an application from Connie Kindsvater, chair of the NPC Scholarship Committee, by calling 249-4969 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applying is April 15. The application process involves sample writing, teacher references, student biography, grades transcript and a letter explaining the students desire to pursue a career in journalism. Upon review of the application, the committee will select qualifying students to interview; scholarship recipients will be notified, with graduating seniors receiving the awards at their respective high schools honor night in May. positive. Housing prices increased in February to $180,000 for the median price of a single-family home, up $5,000 from the previous month and a 9.1 percent increase from a year before. Mortgage rates have been declining over the past month and are once again near historic lows. The Florida unemployment rate remained steady at 5.7 percent in January. And although the U6 measure of unemployment that also counts part-time and discouraged workers is still higher in Florida (12.8 percent) compared with the U.S. (12 percent), it has declined considerably from 19.3 percent in 2010. For now, Floridas economy is doing quite well with the caveat that wages remain persistently stagnant, Mr. McCarty says. But many economists see signs that wages will pick up. The rate of people who quit a job is up to 2 percent in January from 1.7 percent a year ago, suggesting that workers see better-paying opportunities that later translate to higher wages. Conducted March 1-23, the UF study reflects the responses of 419 individuals who were reached on cell phones and who represent a demographic cross section of Florida. The index used by UF researchers is benchmarked to 1966, which means a value of 100 represents the same level of confidence for that year. The lowest index possible is a two; the highest is 150. Details of the March survey can be found at bebr.ufl.edu/cci.

Turtles on the Town will include a public art exhibition from November-February of 50 fiberglass reinforced polyester sea turtle sculptures embellished by local artists and artisans. A gala auction of the sculptures will take place in March 2016. The model used for the sculptures is based on a bronze sea turtle created by the late Kathy Spalding, a longtime supporter of local environmental and arts projects. Ms. Spalding offered her support to Turtles on the Town before she died last September. The models are being cast locally by Architectural Masters. Many community and business leaders have already pledged their support. Lavern Gaynor and Geraldine Martin have each made a $50,000 commitment as major sponsors. May 1 is the deadline for artists to submit renderings of their vision for a sea turtle sculpture. They can submit more than one rendering, and more than one artist can work on a single turtle. Interested artists should email email@example.com for details. Turtles on the Town patrons businesses, individuals, couples, families, groups of friends, alumni associations, school PTOs, youth and adult sports teams, etc. will pay $5,000 to underwrite a sculpture during the public exhibition stage. Patrons do not keep the sculpture they support. For informatoin about becoming a turtle patron, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Those who want to own a turtle will ultimately vie for the opportunity at the Turtles on the Town gala set for March 9, 2016.About the collaborationThe Community Foundation hatched the idea and seeded Turtles on the Town with a start-up loan of $150,000. The foundation will use its share of the proceeds to establish two funds to support the arts and the environment in the community. The Conservancy of Southwest Florida will use its proceeds to support its loggerhead sea turtle protection and monitoring program, Kemps ridley sea turtle research efforts and education programs that reach more than 7,000 students annually. For more than 32 years, Conservancy biologists have tracked the threatened loggerheads, documenting more than 4,500 nests on Keewaydin Island and giving more than 260,000 hatchlings have had a chance at survival. The United Arts Council will use its portion of proceeds to expand its education efforts with at-risk students, among other things.

LASIK surgery is the use of a laser to correct the need for glasses or contact lenses. What if I need reading glasses?People around age 40 who need reading glasses are still good LASIK candidates as they can have something called monovision performed, which involves using the laser to correct one eye for distance vision and the other eye for close vision. What if I am older than age 50?Generally people over the age of 50 are not LASIK candidates.Does LASIK hurt?The answer is usually not. There is a slight discomfort and pressure during the surgery, but no need for pain medication after the surgery is done. What do I need to do to prepare for surgery?If contact lenses are worn they have to be removed a week before surgery. Prior to the treatment further instructions will be provided. Will I see during the surgery?During the surgery the eyes will be numb with anesthetic drops. The eyelids will be held open to prevent blinking. Any eye movement is tracked with the lasers tracking system. During certain parts it is normal for everything to go dark and to see the flashing lights of the laser. How do I choose a LASIK surgeon?When it comes to surgery, experience and training is the key component. Having an ophthalmologist with LASIK subspecialty training is very important. www.ecof.com 239.939.3456 CLUB NOTES The Collier County Mens Republican Club (women welcome) meets at 7:30 a.m. Friday, April 3, at the Pelican Marsh Country Club.

NO MESH HERNIA SPECIALISTSAILINGFrom page 6Jereme had to jump in the water in the middle of nowhere to inspect our propellor and make sure we didnt have any of the plastic rope remains on our boat. Luckily, we didnt Or how about our hefty sail from the Dominican Republic to Puerto Rico, where we had a close call with a huge cargo ship in the middle of the night? Jereme misjudged the direction of the ship and tried tacking away from it. Much to his dismay, he actually tacked closer to the ship. A crew member on the container ship immediately began flashing white lights at us from their control tower, so Jereme quickly tacked back. This little bout of excitement took place while Oliver and I were obliviously unaware and napping below deck. Probably one of the biggest experiences for us was getting engaged on my birthday, two months after we had set sail. We were anchored in Calabash Bay off Long Island, Bahamas To this day, it is still one of our favorite spots weve visited in the Caribbean. Weve also snorkeled some of the clearest turquoise blue waters I could have ever imagined. We found and harvested live conch and dined on homemade conch salad in the out islands of the Bahamas. We fed beach pigs in the Exumas, swam with stingrays in the Berry Islands and friendly sea turtles in Culebra. We watched whales surface off the coast of Mayaguana. We hiked the breathtaking 27 waterfalls of Rio Damagua and motor-biked through sugarcane fields and gorgeous Dominican countryside. We rode horses on the beach in Rincon. Weve met some of the most generous and kind people on the planet and enjoyed some of the best sunsets of our lives. Any life lessons youre bringing home? There are so many parallels between the sport of sailing and real life. Weve learned that it is not in our best interest to keep the boat sitting anchored in one spot for more than a few days. Otherwise, the boat tends to accumulate bottom growth, which can seriously affect its performance. We tend to think that the same could be said for the real world. Its important to keep things alive and moving. You can never realize your full potential if you allow yourself to get too comfortable. We have also learned a great deal about ourselves and one another. Life aboard, in less than 200 square feet of living space, takes extreme teamwork, camaraderie and a passion for life and one another. What are your plans for getting your life back up and running? We enjoy land life just as much as this simple boat life weve been living for the past year. As much as we are excited to return to some of lifes little luxuries, we know all too well how much we will miss certain aspects of this cruising lifestyle. Professionally, I am beyond thrilled to get back to my photography business and all of my amazing clients who have patiently awaited our return. Jereme is planning on getting back into the working world as well and is open to all different types of opportunities. We have lots of grand plans for our future and a family. Whats great about this sailing journey is that its really just one small notch in our grand adventure at life. And what a wonderful thought it is that some of the best days of our lives havent happened yet.

For many people, the feelings are temporary. For others, the feelings persist and affect day-to-day life. When this happens, it is important to seek help from a mental health professional, as depression often gets worse if left untreated. Depression is very common one in six adults may be depressed, explains Daryl Tanski, M.D., psychiatrist at the Lee Physician Group Behavioral Health Center. There isnt one specific cause of depression; it can be a combination of genetics and stressors, like traumatic or stressful events, the death of a loved one or even going to college or starting a new job. Dr. Tanski says depression often manifests in the late teenage years or early 20s, but, because of social stigmas or cultural bias, it may be years later that a person seeks treatment. Unfortunately, there are still misunderstandings about depression, and people feel ashamed, he says. But, just like a heart problem or other physical condition, depression and mental illness require medical intervention, which, depending on the severity, may involve medication, psychotherapy also known as talk therapy or both. The treatment plan is individualized. For most people, depression doesnt just happen once; it is reoccurring, he says. It is very important that we provide education so the patient recognizes when he or she should reach out for help. Dr. Tanski added that short bouts of sadness or anxiety dont constitute depression. Instead, symptoms of depression last most of the day, nearly every day for more than two weeks. These symptoms can include: Loss of pleasure/joy, withdrawing from family and friends. Feelings or a sense of sadness, emptiness, unhappiness. Changes in appetite either loss of or increase in appetite. Altered sleep patterns either insomnia or sleeping too much. Concentration problems, trouble thinking. Negative thoughts feelings of worthlessness or guilt. Anxiety 50 percent of patients with depression will have significant anxiety Thoughts of suicide. If you are having suicidal thoughts, get help right away from a close friend or loved one, or call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at (800) 273-TALK. Depression is highly treatable, and there shouldnt be shame or discomfort in seeking help, Dr. Tanski says. Untreated depression can lead to other issues, like substance abuse if someone is self-medicating with alcohol or drugs, for example. We are here to help determine the best plan of care in order to restore each patients quality of life. HEALTHY LIVING Collier earns a health score in statewide rankingCollier County ranks second among the healthiest places to live in Florida, according to the sixth annual County Health Rankings & Roadmaps tool released recently by the University of Wisconsin and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The study highlights numerous community factors that influence health and uses established data, much of which is available from the Florida Department of Health at floridacharts.com. Our continued high ranking is a direct result of the whole community working together, from continued collaboration and commitment of our community leaders, to the hard work and healthy choices of each individual in our community, says Stephanie Vick, DOH administrator in Collier County. The rankings emphasize that health is not a singular effort but a combined work in progress across all community partners. The DOH works in collaboration with local governments, nonprofit organizations, health-care facilities, business groups, schools, faith-based organizations and many other stakeholders to improve the overall health of a community. In Collier County, the Community Health Improvement Plan addresses specific opportunities for improved health that have been identified by the community. Obesity continues to be one of the most significant local public health issues. Addressing this concern, plans are in place to improve nutrition and physical activity in early care and education, promote breastfeeding support and increase personal accountability for health-related behaviors and outcomes. The new Blue Zones Project in Collier County will greatly expand upon the obesity work plan, as well as numerous other community health improvement focus areas. We are excited that Collier County is on the path to becoming a Blue Zone, Ms. Vick says. While our county health ranking is high, we have many opportunities to improve upon the health of our residents, especially concerning obesity. In partnership with NCH Healthcare System, the Blue Zones Project by Healthways is a community well-being improvement initiative.

To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call Courtney Curatolo, director of public affairs and education for Planned Parenthood of Collier County, at 262-8923, ext. 301. Help snuff out smoking and tobacco useTobacco use is the most significant cause of preventable disease, disability and death in the world, causing more deaths than HIV, automobile accidents, illegal drug abuse, alcohol abuse, homicide and suicide combined. In Florida, 1,300 people lose their lives every year as a direct result of tobacco use. Despite increasing awareness of the risks involved with tobacco use, the tobacco industry continues to attract significant numbers of young people through marketing and products developed with teens in mind. Tobacco Free Collier calls on members of the community to become partners in making a difference. Partners help create awareness about tobacco issues and develop and advocate for policies that will reduce the use and effects of tobacco in Collier County. Partnership is free and open to anyone who lives, works or conducts business in Collier County. Partners meet bi-monthly at the office of the Florida Department of Health in Collier County (Building H at the Collier County Government Complex, 3339 Tamiami Trail E.). The next meeting begins at 4 p.m. Wednesday, May 27. For more information, call 252-6852 or visit tobaccofreeflorida.com/county/collier/.

Pharmacy techs deliver just what the doctors orderEvery hospital has many unsung heroes operating in less visible stations who help make the institution great. One such station at NCH is our pharmacy. Almost no one comes to the hospital without getting some form of medication, and that medication originates in the pharmacy. Our 35 pharmacy technicians play a key role in the safe dispensing and delivery of 6,000-plus doses of medication delivered daily on our two campuses. Licensed professionals who are registered under the Florida Board of Pharmacy, pharmacy techs must undergo six months of training and keep up with continuing education. NCH pharmacy techs support the compounding of sterile products including intravenous antibiotics, chemotherapy drugs, insulin drips, neonatal and pediatric formulations and special drugs for cardiac patients to control heart rate and blood pressure. Wearing gowns, gloves, masks, hairnets, hoods and shoe covers, they work in labs with positive pressure designed to preserve cleanliness, surrounded by an equally climate-controlled and air pressure-controlled anteroom. The air pressure, air filtering and number of air exchange requirements exceed that of an operating room. At our downtown campus, we also have a special room for mixing oncology medications. This area is vented directly to the outside, and the pressure differences make opening the door to the room a bit of a struggle. All chemotherapy orders are triple checked by clinical pharmacists and then double-checked before leaving the compounding area, with a final check completed by the nurse prior to administration. And each medication has a linage with date, time, person compounding, lot number and expiration date clearly displayed. Delivering the right medication to the right person at the right time is serious business, and it happens thousands of times a day at NCH. Getting the initial compounding or selection of the medication correct from the start is mission critical and demands the kind of heroic performance our pharmacy techs deliver every day, 24/7.

(239) 415-7576 BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal Uclick A scent-trained German shepherd mix named Frankie had an 88 percent success rate in detecting thyroid cancer in human urine samples. A study presented earlier this month at the Endocrine Society meeting in San Diego found that the accuracy of the canine diag-nosetician is only slightly less than that of the more invasive fine-needle aspiration biopsy, not to mention less expensive. Frankie is the first dog trained to differentiate benign thyroid disease from thyroid cancer by smelling a persons urine, says study co-author Arny Ferrando, Ph.D., of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, where the study was conducted. Have you ever wondered which cat breeds are largest and smallest? Compared to dogs, cats dont vary a great deal in size: There might be a feline equivalent to the Chihuahua, but not to the Great Dane (lucky for us!). Among the heaviest breeds are Norwegian forest cats and Maine coons, weighing 7 to 22 pounds; Siberians, 10 to 20 pounds; Turkish vans, 7 to 19 pounds; and Savannahs, 20 pounds or more. Falling into the featherweight category are the singapura, 4 to 7 pounds; and the Cornish rex, Devon rex and Japanese bobtail, all weighing 6 to 9 pounds. Genetic testing isnt enough to improve the health of purebred dogs, say scientists at the University of Edinburghs Roslin Institute. To improve genetic diversity, they recommend a combined approach using DNA analysis, health screening, limiting the use of individual stud dogs, and cross-breeding an approach that has been successful in breeding Dalmatians lacking a genetic defect that causes kidney stones, a common problem in the breed. Screening dogs for health problems before breeding them has helped to reduce the prevalence of some diseases, and DNA tests may help to eliminate disease-causing genes, but relying solely on tests and screening can reduce the gene pool. Dr. Marty Becker contributed to this story.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 2-8, 2015 NEWS A35 THE DIVA DIARIESFor a faster response, just hang up and text meHi. Youve reached my voicemail. Youre welcome to leave a message, and Ill listen to it when I can, but for a faster response, just hang up and text me. Thats the new voicemail greeting on my iPhone and honestly, Im shocked that Ive finally crossed over to the dark side. Ive gone from being a talker to a texter and I never saw it coming. When texting first started, none of us had smartphones. Sure, we could struggle with our flip phones, but it took 10 minutes to type out Where r u as we used the number pad to hunt for the letters we needed. And not only that, I dont even think there was punctuation back then. Really, only teenagers texted, as their lightning fast thumbs pressed the tiny key pad that no one over 40 could even see without putting on reading glasses. Because texting was more trouble than it was worth, I continued to be a talker. I remember, a little over 10 years ago, when my husband and I first started dating and we lived 25 miles apart on opposite ends of Southwest Florida, he asked me what the most important component would be to keep our relationship strong. I told him, Call me. Call me every single day. I wasnt one of those girls who would sit around waiting for the phone to ring, but I wasnt going to pick up the phone and call him, either. I wanted the guarantee that on days when we werent able to see each other, we would at least talk. This resulted in lots of long, late night conversations, as we told each other our stories and got to know each other better with every phone call every single day. Im pretty much convinced that if Todd and I had started dating in the modern texting age, we wouldnt have lasted. Rather than calling me and talking, he would have just shot me a text. I truly believe that texting has been technologys greatest gift to men. Most men hate making phone calls and using their voices to make words, and the ability to text has eliminated all that. Its also eliminated the misery of ladies sitting by phones mentally willing them to ring. I cant count the number of times Ive been sitting at happy hour with any one of my single girlfriends, when her iPhone (which is always placed on the bar so she can see and hear it, just in case) suddenly chimes. Her face brightens as she looks down and announces gleefully, He TEXTED me!! What did he text? I ask. She proudly shows me the text. Its a heart emoticon and a smiley face emoticon. Its not even actual words. It took him exactly four seconds to make her feel as if he had written her an 18-page sonnet. Guys can now maintain romances with cute emoticons. And were letting them get away with it. But thats not all. Even professionally, were texting; its replaced email in many ways. And now that we can voice text, its even easier. Since I voice text so often, Ive found myself adding punctuation to actual face-to-face conversations: Hi comma Cindy exclamation point how did you enjoy the play question mark. Its crazy. When I realized that since I cant beat them I might as well join them, I changed my voicemail. I can see if I missed a call, but its a waste of time to listen to a long, rambling message when we could actually be communicating. Its worked beautifully; there are no messages in my voicemail box. But there are also a lot fewer phone conversations in my life and I domiss them. Im happy, though, that there is still one person who calls me every single day: my husband. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 2-8, 2015 MONEY & INVESTINGAfter years of writing about money, columnist to call it quitsIt is hard to imagine that I have been writing this column since 2008. The expression time flies seems trite until you experience the fleeting passage of time. This weeks column bids adieu to my readers and ends my tenure as Florida Weeklys Money and Investing columnist. This is not my very last column, but it is an announcement that my departure draws nigh. I wanted to write my farewell now so as to capture the eyeballs of my seasonal readers and prepare them for an upcoming column that will be a comprehensive look at investing and where investors currently find themselves. In 2008, the newspapers executive editor suggested a column that would cover a broad range of money and investing topics. He felt that if I could talk to him about all sorts of money and investing topics, I might well be able to write about them, too. I was not sure that I was up to the task; money and investing is a broad subject and Florida Weekly entertains and educates readers with widely varying economic and educational backgrounds. But I was a single mom raising two teenage children and I needed to re-launch my investment career, which I had left on Wall Street some 15 years earlier. I counseled myself that the column was an opportunity for me to reengage my mind on these topics and I would be pleasantly forcing myself to get clear about these money topics. The last time I had written for the public was at NYUs Graduate school of Business as coeditor of the school newspaper in 1978. My first Florida Weekly column was presented to one of my sisters who is a professional writer for her review before submission. The second column was less a family project. Pretty soon, I was writing so much that a weeks passage would find me forgetting about that which I had written a week earlier. Then and now I hold to the premise that you cannot write about that which you do not understand nor believe to be true. Many can talk about a subject, but far fewer can write about it. Not that the speaker would lack writing skills (and some might), but there is something about print that is unforgiving and allows scrutiny by readers. A presentation with slides, a meeting in lavish offices, an animated discussion with hands flying and emphatic vocal tones etc. allow many a half-baked investment idea to pass muster or a marginal sales pitch to be bought hook, line and sinker. Print changes all of that. The words and concepts stand on their own. They are their own energy and their own logic. Over the course of eight years, many readers have written to me. I have greatly appreciated their time to read my column and to write and the courtesy of providing their names as opposed to anonymous critiques. Do not hesitate to email a columnist, as we are pleased to get feedback, and we need your many good ideas for column topics. For me, for many other columnists, writing requires work: much reading, much conceptualizing and then much writing effort. Here are several writing-related concepts that might have relevance for you. Take time to write what you understand to be your financial plan. Yes, an expert can write it for you but if you write it, you will know if you understand it. Putting it on paper and posting it in a visible spot holds you accountable to that plan; whether it be savings, portfolio allocation, education, visiting with new advisers, etc. Second, when you read financial content, in this paper or elsewhere and you do not understand it, take the column to others who might understand and have a conversation. Much of my understanding has begun with, Can you explain what this means? The reason there are so many areas of financial specialization is that it is sufficiently complex. Third, write to your children and grandchildren about financial topics. It is part of your legacy. You can pass on to them your financial successes and failures. How much better if they vicariously experience our financial blunders rather than their own. Back to the present: After 15 years of being a solo parent, a single gal, I am going to tie the knot. I recently got engaged to a man of great character who once ran a large publicly traded company. Interestingly, my fiance was a friend first; his lack of romantic interest in me did not deter me from wanting and enjoying his friendship. Time often snuffs a flame, but it can also fan a flame. I plan to exit my peripheral business interests as my mainstay investment profession will continue and it is sufficiently demanding. I thank those who have edited my columns over the years. They connected the disjointed, challenged me to explain the confusing and created titles when I felt brain dead. I am so happy for the success of this newspaper for the founders who took great entrepreneurial risk and for the Florida residents who have benefitted from the excitement the paper brings to local communities. Ive been proud to work with a product that highlights positive community news and has announced to the print media industry that the newspaper is alive and well when content is good and relevant.

It is opening its first Southwest Florida stores on April 23, promoting a kitchen forward concept with a touch-screen ordering system for its famous hoagies, and options like smoothies, pita and hummus, and skim milk with your latte. Demand for better food is shaping offerings at convenience stores industry wide. Customers who come to our stores really like the taste of our food and we believe thats a part of having loyal customers, said Dorian Cunion, manager of franchise, marketing and recruiting for 7-Eleven, pointing out the chains proprietary pizza, sandwiches and doughnuts. Were seeing really strong growth rates in food and beverage in those stores. Wawa plans to open 50 stores in the state in 2015 and 2016, and hopes to break ground in Broward and Palm Beach counties in 2016. It already has more than 50 stores open in the Tampa and Orlando areas. RaceTrac, Speedway, 7-Eleven and other chains are growing as well. The new stores are a normal part of a recovering economy and population growth, said Christopher Westley, an economist and professor at Florida Gulf Coast University. They also provide entry-level jobs. Not including construction, a Wawa store provides up to 40 jobs, a spokesperson said. These are important jobs for unskilled workers to have, Professor Westley said. A lot of times these are entry level jobs to better jobs.WawaWawa is opening three stores in Lee County on April 23, at 2370 Colonial Blvd. and at 12701 South Cleveland Ave. in Fort Myers, and at 1622 NE Pine Island Road in Cape Coral. Weve got something kind of tailored to everyones cravings and I think thats what makes us distinct from other retailers, said Wawa spokesperson Lori Bruce. Wawa is a privately held company with 675 stores. It opened its first Florida store in July 2012. Each store costs on average $5.5 million to build. Wawa considers itself friends and neighbors serving friends and neighbors, Ms. Bruce said. Beginning with our first store, our associates pride themselves on working their way into the hearts, minds and fabric of peoples lives. Their competition has similar goals. Our people are our competitive advantage, said RaceTrac franchisee Joe Graham, who owns 14 stores in Charlotte and Lee counties. We want to be your neighborhood store. The key in the end is caring and being persistent, basically having a relationship with the customers and being part of the community, said 7-Eleven franchisee John Hays, who owns four stores in Palm Beach County and Miami. RaceTracJoe Graham used to manage logistics for a high-end furniture company. He got into the convenience store business six years ago, becoming a franchise with RaceTrac. His 15th store is scheduled to open in Estero this summer. Fresh and healthy is big, he said. We want to be a lunch destination and a breakfast destination. RaceTrac, an Atlanta-based chain with 380-plus locations in the Southeastern U.S., has built eight new k for 6,000-square-foot stores in the last 30 months in Lee County, Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Bonita Springs. Its just a bigger, brighter, more appealing store, said RaceTrac spokesperson Jessica Rice. It has no stores planned in Charlotte County but we are actively looking to expand our footprint there, Ms. Rice said. RaceTracs newest location in Collier County opened near the end of March on Marco Island, with two more set to open this year. The company has three new stores opening in Palm Beach County this year as well. A subsidiary of Marathon Petroleum Company, Speedway has also expanded its footprint. Last year, Marathon bought out Hess stores in the eastern United States. Our Speedway assets were in nine states and this acquisition pushed us into 22 states, said Chuck Rice, a spokesperson for Marathon, and doubled their total number of stores. That includes two Speedways in Charlotte, seven in Collier, 23 in Lee and eight in Palm Beach counties. 7-ElevenJohn Hays bought into 7-Eleven as a franchise owner last year after working for more than 20 years in the retail banking industry. Now instead of products like auto loans, mortgages, and credit cards he offers hot sandwiches, fresh fruit, and of course, Slurpees. Coffee and tea and the foundation drinks and in our case especially the Slurpee, that is a focal point and a public attractor, said Mr. Hays, who owns two 7-Elevens in Palm Beach County, and two in Miami with a fifth soon to open. I have seen a lot of innovation even in the few months that Ive been partnering with 7-Eleven. Were coming out with two hot melts that are being launched now. These are Italian and chicken sandwiches. All of that is obviously increasing the basket because in the end its helping the customer do everything in one place and thats what convenience means. With so much competition in the market, Mr. Hays said standing out means being persistent and consistent. Making sure everythings clean and the stores fully stocked every time, he said. The consistency there is key. 7-Eleven currently has 19 stores under construction in the state. It currently has 465 stores in Florida, some corporate owned and some franchise owned. To attract franchisees like Mr. Hays, the chain is waiving most of the new franchise fees on 44 stores in Florida through June 30, typically those at locations with lower sales. Thats a savings of about $80,000 per store. It cuts the costs of licensing, permits and initial down payments to about $30,000. That includes locations in West Palm Beach, North Fort Myers and Bonita Springs. Basic qualifications for a franchisee are having excellent credit and $50,000 in liquid assets. Some of our most profitable stores are in Florida and were seeing really strong growth rates in food and beverage in those stores, said Mr. Cunion. We want to increase our market share in Florida.

Microsoft taps Naples company for annual Visionary Award SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNaples-based Kelly Roofing is one of 12 companies that received a 2015 Visionary Award during the recent Microsoft Convergence conference in Atlanta. The awards recognize customers who have achieved new levels of excellence with their Microsoft technology. Other winners include Pandora Jewelry, Barclays and AccuWeather. Ken Kelly, owner of the company with his father, Joe Kelly, accepted the award on March 17 while on stage with Microsoft staff to discuss how he uses Microsoft products. In 2012 when Ken Kelly anticipated the economic recovery had begun, he sought a technology solution to ensure that customers, sales staff and administrative employees had accurate and ongoing communication about where each job was in the companys production cycle. I was looking for software that would allow us to manage customer relations as well as the operational side of the business, he says. He selected Microsoft Dynamics CRM, which provides personalized customer experiences, proactive tasks for customer contact and analytics to identify patterns and predict outcomes. Mr. Kelly says the efficiencies of the software helped his company double in business without growing its staff. His staff can access the software from anywhere, which is important because most of his employees do not work in the office. The software allows everyone to add notes to a file, receive automatic reminders and spend more time with customers, because mundane tasks are automated. He was surprised when the Minneapolisbased company he hired to help him implement and program the software nominated his firm for the Microsoft award, which was won by Delta Airlines last year.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 2-8, 2015 I began in 1913 as a fancy store in Milan, offering leather bags and luxury accessories. Today Im a top global fashion brand. In 1919, I became the official supplier to the Italian royal household and got the right to include the coat of arms of the House of Savoy in my logo. I bought the British shoe company Churchs in 1999 and Italys Car Shoe brand in 2001. I launched eyewear in 2000 and a touch-screen phone in 2007.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Add Some Women to Your PortfolioDiversity in investing has been getting more attention lately, as many investors are now seeking companies that have promoted more women to key managerial positions and placed more women on their boards of directors.With women now making up nearly half the workforce, it would seem natural that women would start playing a bigger role at the heads of the nations companies. And yet last year, only 17.7 percent of Fortune 1000 companies board of directors seats were held by women, and more recently, only 4.8 percent of CEOs of companies in the S&P 500 were women.With that in mind, some investor groups and organizations have begun to promote as choice investments companies that support the advancement for women. And this strategy isnt just a feelgood idea, either.Data has shown that women are often superior investors compared to men, with a lower risk tolerance that can lead to better decision-making, more long-term planning, less frequent trading and higher use of outside help. In fact, from 2000 to 2009, hedge funds managed mostly by women produced an average annual return of 9.1 percent, versus 5.8 percent for a broader composite of hedge funds.Other data has shown that companies with more women in their top managerial positions and boards are more successful, even during periods of financial strain. From 2006 to 2012, large companies with more women on their boards averaged annual revenue growth of 14 percent versus 10 percent for companies with mostly male boards.If youre interested in a mutual fund focused on companies with progressive practices of advancing women to key roles within the organization, check out the Pax Ellevate Global Womens Index Fund (PXWEX). Some of its top holdings (among several hundred) are PepsiCo, Lockheed Martin and Procter & Gamble; the first two have female CEOs, and the third has a significant number of female executives.While gender diversity should not be your only consideration when choosing an investment option, the long-term benefits of diversity could provide your portfolio with staying power. Marriage and MoneyOne of my dumbest investment stories is intertwined with one of my wifes smartest ones. Way back in 1973, I made the mistake of telling her to sign some papers so we could sell some of our stocks. Since I hadnt discussed it with her before telling her to sign, she refused. Over the next bunch of years, I invested $35,000 in a lost cause, losing 95 percent of the money. We still held those unsold stocks, though, and they did very well. Im still thanking my wife. W., onlineThe Fool Responds: Its always best for couples to discuss their finances together, ideally making joint decisions. Its also smart to not let one partner take care of all things financial without involving the other. The less-involved one should know where all the related papers and passwords are, in case they need to take over at some point. Hanging on to stocks for many years is a great way to build big wealth, but you shouldnt do so blindly. Check in on your holdings every quarter or so to make sure the companies are still performing well, with strong prospects. Is It Time to Step on the Gas?You dont witness a 55 percent drop in oil prices without there being some genuinely negative repercussions for energy stocks. The collapse, which has been driven by a glut of oil in U.S. terminals and refineries, as well as the insistence of Saudi Arabia that it has no plans to cut production, could, for example, cause ExxonMobils profits to fall by more than half in 2015.But this weakness in oil prices, and the resulting drop in energy-company stock prices, can be a reason to go on the offensive rather than retreat. Carbon-based fuels are expected by some to continue to meet 75 percent of the worlds energy demands in 2040, and energy demand is expected to rise 35 percent by then, too. If youre skittish about investing in energy stocks now, or arent confident youll pick the right ones, consider investing in the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (NYSE: XLE).Exchange-traded funds, or ETFs, are a bit of a cross between mutual funds and stocks. The Energy Select one, for example, is an easy way to invest in about 43 oil-and-gas and service companies for an ultra-low annual fee just 0.15 percent of assets. Not surprisingly, ExxonMobil and Chevron make up more than a quarter of total assets, resulting in strong cash flow and a recent dividend yield of 2.3 percent. (The Motley Fool recommends Chevron.) My roots go back to the Upton Machine Co., founded in 1911 in Benton Harbor, Michigan, to make and sell electric wringer washers. By 1916, I was selling them through Sears, Roebuck. I startled society in 1917 by giving my workers paid vacations. In 1967, I launched the first toll-free customer support line, operating 24 hours a day. Today Im the worlds top major appliance maker, taking in about $20 billion annually and employing about 100,000 people around the world. My brands include KitchenAid, Consul, Maytag, Brastemp, Amana, Bauknecht, Jenn-Air, Indesit and my own flagship name. Who am I? (Answer: Whirlpool) Get Schooled in SchoolsQWhere online can I find information on colleges and financial aid? C.B., Taylorville, IllinoisAFor college planning and the college search, you might visit collegeboard.org, petersons.com, campustours.com and unigo.com.For more financial aid guidance, start with the U.S. Department of Education at ed.gov and studentaid. ed.gov. (The latters page at studentaid. ed.gov/resources#college-prep-andpay is especially handy.) The finaid. org website offers scholarship and loan guidance and help filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). (Dont get intimidated by the FAFSA filling it out is very important.) At fastweb.com, you can search a large scholarship database.***QWhat does a REITs FFO refer to? R.N., Petal, MississippiAFirst off, know that REIT stands for Real Estate Investment Trust. A REIT may look and act like an ordinary stock, but its a different kind of company, getting certain tax benefits and required to pay out at least 90 percent of its income as dividends. REITs typically own many properties, such as offices, laboratories, nursing homes, hotels, shopping centers or apartments.With most companies, investors will examine net income, which reflects the profits left over from sales after all expenses have been subtracted. REITs are different, though. According to accounting rules, the value of REIT properties is decreased over time, with depreciation charged against and reducing net income.In reality, however, real estate properties are probably not falling in value and may even be appreciating. So a REITs net income tends to understate its health. Thus, you should look at a REITs funds from operation, or FFO, instead. It ignores the effect of depreciation and other non-cash charges and gives you a truer picture of the REITs performance. Learn more about REITs at reit.com. Got a question for the Fool?

We are so excited NABOR chose to do this for us, says Teresa Stohs, executive director of the foundation, which for 32 years has served developmentally disabled adults and their families in Collier and Lee counties. Foundation efforts include raising community awareness and providing housing options and educational, social and recreational activities. Realtors are often the first point of contact with new residents, Ms. Stohs says, adding, Someone who can alert families with a disabled child or family member about the benefits of our services is a wonderful new connection. The foundation currently has 220 clients. Organized by the NABOR Community Involvement Committee, the disco dance raised $3,600 for the cause. The committees goal is to connect NABORs 5,000 members with area residents by presenting activities and events that raise the communitys consciousness about neighbors in need, says NABOR member and committee chair Mario Valle. The events we host are NABORs way of giving back to the community, he adds. Coming up next: The annual NABOR Family Fun Day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 25, rain or shine, at NABOR headquarters, 1455 Pine Ridge Road. Admission is free.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYB30 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF APRIL 2-8, 2015 Fit for royalty: Miamis Taj Majal in the sky for $3.2 million TOPTENREALESTATEDEALS.COMMiami is no stranger to avant-garde architecture. Known for years as a cultural melting pot and Americas southernmost gateway to the world, it has brought star architects from around the world and like-minded developers together for decades. Long after the original Art Deco period in South Beach, the next colorful and avant-garde architectural statement came in 1963 when the Bacardi rum family fled Cuba and re-established their headquarters on Biscayne Boulevard, building the stunning Bacardi Building with its brilliant blue and white tile design up its tall sides. Then came Arquitectonica, which infused new life into Brickell Avenue where Old Florida mansions once overlooked Biscayne Bay. Arquitectonicas high-rises were boldly colorful with what some thought shocking design such as large openings in the middle as seen every week on the opening segment of NBCs Miami Vice. But one of Miamis luxury condos, the Palace, had a secret. On its 40th floor rooftop was a glamorous three-story glass condo with a terrace that encompassed the entire roof and 360-degree views over Key Biscayne, the Miami skyline, west and south Miami and the Atlantic beyond Biscayne Bay. Completed in 1981, the condo was immediately grabbed by Leona Queen of Mean Helmsley. Always seeking the best for herself, Mrs. Helmsley was well practiced in knowing a great piece of real estate when she saw it, and this one she had to have. But just before she and Mr. Helmsley were to move in, Saudi Sheik Saoud Al-Shaalan made an offer and if there was anything Mrs. Helmsley loved better than superb real estate, it was a big profit. She took the offer and happily went off on her next spending spree. The sheik brought in 27 Moroccan craftsmen and in two years had turned the rooftop residence into a romantically exotic blend of Persian, Turkish and Indian style inspired by the Taj Majal. He sold it in 1999 to international real estate developer and antique weapons collector Anthony Tirri. But as Tirris type tend to do, he moved on to remodel an aging French chateau, and now Miamis Taj Majal is up for sale. At 5,801 square feet, the Palaces sky palace has six bedrooms and five baths with lavish details of mosaic tile, carving and plasterwork throughout. The massive great room is large enough to hold any fundraiser in ultimate style; on west-south side, a huge greenhousesunroom offers an additional venue for entertaining or sitting back to enjoy the sun and fragrance of the potted citrus blooms. Wonderfully eccentric, luxurious and romantic with jaw-dropping views, the home on top of Miamis Palace condominium priced at $3.2 million. Yours to have for $26 million: Lauren Bacalls Dakota apartment TOPTENREALESTATEDEALS.COMWith a long history of some of the worlds most powerful business, sports and movie star owners, The Dakota at Central Park West in New York City is one of the most prestigious residential addresses in the world. John Lennon and Yoko Ono moved into the building in 1973 and lived there until John was murdered outside the buildings 72nd Street entry in 1980 by a deranged fan; Yoko still has a home there. The buildings exterior was filmed as the home of Mia Farrows character in Rosemarys Baby. The buildings design is a mix of French Renaissance, German Gothic and English Victorian steep-pitched roofs, dormers, moldings, balconies, pavilions and a Dakota Indian figure watching over the main entrance. (The legend is that it was named The Dakota because it was built in 1884 in the boondocks, far away from the most popular areas of Manhattan.) The idea and construction of the building was from Edward Clark, cofounder of the Singer Sewing Company, who did real estate on the side. One of the most famous long-time residents of The Dakota was the sultry, contralto-voiced Lauren Bacall. She began her long career as a model doing covers for Harpers Bazaar and Vogue before getting her first acting job at age 19 in To Have and Have Not. Her most famous films, including Key Largo and The Big Sleep, were with co-star Humphrey Bogart who she married in 1945 and stayed with until his death in 1957. Ms. Bacall died at age 89 in 2014 at her home in The Dakota where she lived for 53 years. Her nine-room, three-bedroom, four-bath apartment with almost 100 feet facing Central Park is now for sale. The residence retains exceptional 19th century Dakota features such as 13-foot ceilings, a foyer fireplace, 11-foot pocket doors, wainscoting, the original butlers pantry, plaster moldings, shutter-framed windows and hardwood flooring. A 70-foot-long gallery opens to the major public rooms including the library, great room, and formal dining room. A Juliette balcony opens over treetop Central Park views. Its offered at $26 million.

Ms. Kostsova was academically trained in the Russian traditions at her hometown art school in Yeketerinburg, Siberia, and later at the famous Repins Art Academy in St. Petersburg. She paints in an impressionistic style that gallery owner Olga Arkhangelskaya considers to be quintessentially Russian and Siberian not preachy, but raw, crude and powerful. Siberia is quite a rigorous place and it affects everything the outlook of the people and how they look at the world and it reflects their character, Ms. Arkhangelskaya says. Despite being very soft-mannered and very soft-voiced, Julia demonstrates tremendous strength in her work. Gallery on Fifth first presented an exhibition of Ms. Kostsova works last year. The paintings, many depicting pre-Christian folk customs from her homeland, were so well received that Ms. Arkhangelskaya invited the young artist to spend time in Naples painting local scenes. The work was quite a departure for Ms. Kostsova. When I arrived in Naples, I knew immediately that I was facing working in a completely different light the sun is quite different from other places Ive been, she says. In this sun-drenched environment, the colors of nature are quite different from what I was used to. She couldnt grasp it. The light is so different, Ms. Arkhangelskaya says. Everything here is so absolutely flat. There are no shadows, there is no depth. The sun is so high it is absolutely disorienting. She was puzzled. After several days of thinking and studying, Ms. Kostsova ventured to Lovers Key and Big Cypress National Preserve, among other outdoor destinations. We directed her to go to the most beautiful places, but theyre differently beautiful, Ms. Arkhangelskaya says. Theyre not Russian, theyre not France, theyre not Europe. This is Florida. The landscapes themselves were different from the European scenes SEE PAINTINGS, C4 L ART COURTESY PHOTOJulia Kostsova and her fianc, Nikolay Gonchar, at the Naples Pier.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 2-8, 2015 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS Visualizing a garden but wishing for something else My whole life, I wanted a garden. I could picture it with exquisite clarity: Rows of tomatoes, squash and peppers. Herbs, too cilantro, basil, mint. In all my time wandering the globe, a long stretch of rootlessness flecked with an aching loneliness, I held on to this image of a garden. Some day, I thought, I will cultivate my own plot of land. Now, here we are. I have a house, a yard and you guessed it a garden. I turned over this little strip of dirt alongside the fence up close to the house and planted all the things Id been imagining: tomatoes, peppers, a row of herbs at the front and a big eggplant smack in the middle. I water every morning. Im always down on my hands and knees weeding. One day, I spent the better part of an afternoon digging up old bricks from beside my driveway and building a low wall around the garden. When it was done and I was sunburned, my back screaming, I stood in front of the little plot of land and thought, This is it? After years of seeing it clearly on the screen of my mind, I discovered a disconcerting truth: I dont really want a garden. For all that labor, all that sweat and hard work, Ive ended up with a few mealy tomatoes and three of the mildest jalapeos you can imagine. The squirrels beat me to the best part of the harvest, and I dont even mind. The entire experience has been, well, underwhelming. Someone told me recently that the key to happiness is visualization. I dont disagree. Ive long believed that the way to get what we want is to first imagine it. But what if the thing were imagining visualizing isnt what will make us happy? Like most women, Ive been trained since infancy to believe I want two things: marriage and children. If we can just lock that down, the common wisdom goes, then everything else will fall into place. For my part, Ive been visualizing this for so long and with such intensity that the image is burned into my mental screen. Why, I agonize, is it not working out for me? Midway through my garden project, I bought my first papaya tree. It was a revelation. The unexpected beauty of it, the knowledge that Id have to wait months for it to bear fruit, the idea of the fruit itself was all so exotic and complex. I loved the tree so much that I went back the next day for two more. Then I bought a mango tree. An avocado. A lychee. As it turns out, what I really wanted was a tropical orchard. Here in my mid-30s, with neither husband nor baby on the horizon, I wonder if all these years Ive been visualizing the wrong thing not what would make me happy, but something I thought I was supposed to want. Sometimes we invest so much energy envisioning a particular version of our future that we forget to consider other options. The good news? Theres a whole world out there. Why waste our time planting tomatoes when what we really want is lychees?

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 2-8, 2015 Ms. Kostsova is accustomed to painting. She says she was most struck by Lovers Key, where the waves were almost lyrical, poetic. When I was painting, I stood alone in the warm waves, like solitary rugged trees, she says. The feeling was of complete peace and immersion into purity and oneness with nature. After finishing some paintings in natural settings, she turned her attention to some urban landscapes, capturing the downtown Neapolitan atmosphere while painting in plein air on Fifth Avenue and Third Street South. Consisting of 15 paintings, Neapolitan Moods will hang in Gallery on Fifth until April 22. Several of Ms. Kostsovas renderings of Russian folk customs remain on display there as well. PAINTINGSFrom page 1 Neapolitan Moods>> What: An exhibit of oil paintings by Russian artist Julia Kostsova depicting local scenes >> Where: Gallery on Fifth, Mercato >> When: Through April 22 >> Hours: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday, noon to 6 p.m. Sunday da y, noon to 6 p m Sund ay Julia Kostsova, left, paints a poolside portrait of Leeza Arkhangleskaya.

ARTS COMMENTARYFikry & Zevin & Hozier & AnnieA while ago, I had dinner with people who, throughout the entire meal, talked about food and recipes and restaurants. Reading Gabrielle Zevins novel, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, was a little like that experience: I was reading a book in which the characters love books, read books and talk about them all the time. Itd be an understatement to say books are important to them. (In fact, one character decides not to go on a second date with a man because when she asks what book had the greatest influence on his life, he replies, Principles of Accounting, Part II.) The A.J. Fikry of the title, whom the author describes as a little bit Silas Marner, a pinch of Mr. Darcy, is a curmudgeonly, 39-year-old widower who owns a bookstore on an island off Massachusetts. Hes surrounded by books, literally and figuratively. His life changes when a 2-year-old is abandoned in his bookstore, with a note from her desperate mother that reads in part: I want her to grow up to be a reader. I want her to grow up in a place with books and among people who care about those kind of things. Mr. Fikrys life also changes when he meets a publishers sales rep, Amelia Loman, from Knightley Press. (Yes, Loman as in Willy Loman in Death of a Salesman, and Knightley as in Mr. Knightley in Jane Austens Emma. Literary references abound in this novel. Even its paperback cover is self-referential; its the image of a bookstore, and in the front window is a copy of the hardcover edition of The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry.) Kirkusreviews.com describes it as a likeable literary love story about selling books and finding love. This New York Times Best Seller is a behind-the-scenes look at the commerce of bookselling and includes mention of publishers seasonal catalogs, galleys and advance readers copies; it affirms that books have the power to change our lives in ways great and small. And its also a behind-the-scenes look at how our hearts work. Elaine Newton, of the Critics Choice lecture series at Artis Naples, has picked it to wrap up this years season. Shell also interview the author, Ms. Zevin, onstage at 10 a.m. Thursday, April 9, and Saturday, April 11. Tickets are $45. The April 9 session is sold out. (Ms. Zevin will also give a talk and sign books at Barnes & Noble in Waterside Shops at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 9.) Because this season marked the 25th anniversary of Critics Choice, Ms. Newton says, I was looking for a novel that could happily and suitably end this special season, a season that included (Donna Tartts) The Goldfinch, (Sue Monk Kidds) The Invention of Wings, (Anthony Doerrs) All the Light We Cannot See, (Helen Oyeyemis) Boy, Snow, Bird and (Colum McCanns) Transatlantic. A novel that would be different from each of these. Perhaps a new, young voice, certainly one that was entertaining, poignant, wise and honest. When she devoured The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry in two sittings, she knew this was the novel. Its a love story about books and writers and booksellers and the role of reading in all our lives, she says. Its full of humor and sadness and love. Its heartwarming, delightful and very, very clever. Perfect. Just the right gift to say Thank you for 25 years to a loyal, thoughtful audience of committed readers. And it would be just the right thing to have Gabrielle Zevin on stage in conversation with me.Hozier & Annie LennoxI know the Grammys were televised back in February, but I still cant get them out of my head. Sometimes the awards show seems like a contest for the biggest display of ego, and sometimes the musicians seem like theyre competing to see who can be the most outrageous when they perform. For me, the Grammys isnt half as much fun now that theyve cut the number of awards handed out, and the awards for the notas-commercial awards arent even televised. (Did you know, for example, that Rosanne Cash won three Grammys this year?) The producers of the show match people up to perform together. Sometimes theyre a really odd mashup. But sometimes they make sense, as when they paired Jessie J with Sir Tom Jones this year to sing the Righteous Brothers Youve Lost That Lovin Feelin. Both are powerhouse singers with great voices, and they were both coaches for a couple of seasons on the UK version of The Voice. But then, a little later in the show, Hozier performed his hit Take Me to Church, and about two minutes into the song he introduced Annie Lennox, who walked out to wild applause to join him on the chorus. The band then segued into I Put a Spell On You, and the crowd cheered as Annie took the lead. Ms. Lennox has a voice so powerful, so compelling, she couldve been a siren luring sailors. She certainly cast a spell over the audience. They were on their feet before shed finished the song. She was sexy, she was sultry, she was mesmerizing. She won the audience over without any back-up dancers, unusual costumes or special effects just her voice, belting out the song, slowly raising it to a fever pitch. She was, hands down, the best performance of the night, showing them all, effortlessly, how it should be done. And, the former Eurythmics singer is 60, proving the adage that age is just a number. Her performance has close to 5 million hits on YouTube right now, and continues to rise. Ive watched it numerous times myself, and the magic is still there, every time. Its compelled me to go back and watch some of the early Eurythmics music videos, now 30 years old. Not the hits that got the most radio play Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) and Here Comes the Rain Again but the ones that make you want to turn the volume up to 11: the rousing Would I Lie to You?, the haunting Love is a Stranger and I Need a Man, where Ms. Lennox struts around and vamps like a trashy-sexy version of Marilyn Monroe. The songs are so good, I just cant get enough of them. And so I watch and listen to them over and over. Ive watched her medley with Hozier so often that now when I hear his hit played on the radio, Im always disappointed not to hear her at the end of the song. To me, the two songs are forever joined. And yet, heres the mystery of the short-sightedness of current radio programming and todays music industry: Ive yet to hear Annie Lennox singing Ive Put a Spell on You on the radio. Apparently, they seem to think we want just the same few songs played over and over and over. As for me, Im going to keep watching the videos and listening to the music that way. I agree with Rosanne Cash, who, upon receiving one of her Grammys, said, Ray Charles said, Youre a better singer at 50 than you are at 30, because your whole life shows up in your voice. Annie Lennox is certainly proof of that. t w a h C N nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com ZEVIN

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.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.

WE NOW CARRY REAL BLACK STURGEON CAVIAR AND STEAKS RUSSIAN CHOCOLATE EASTER EGGS LATEST FILMSGet HardIs it worth $10? NoThe opening moments of Get Hard feature two shots of Will Ferrells pale white backside. This is expected; he shows his derriere in all his comedies, and were getting it over with early here. Now the movie can be creative. Daring. Try new things. Push boundaries. Make us laugh for reasons we didnt know existed. That Get Hard attempts to do all of the above is laudable; that it only moderately succeeds is, well, laughable for many reasons. Mr. Ferrell is millionaire fund manager James King, and hes on top of the world. His gold-digging fianc, Alissa (Alison Brie), cant wait to spend her life with him in their mansion. Her father, Martin (Craig T. Nelson), also happens to be James boss, and things couldnt be better at work. Or so James thinks. Then, at their engagement party, while John Mayer plays a song for them, James is arrested and charged with 43 counts of securities fraud and 30 counts of embezzlement. He maintains his innocence but is sentenced to 10 years in maximum security at San Quentin prison. Hes given 30 days to get his affairs in order. Accordingly, he completely freaks out. For help he enlists the guy who washes his car, Darnell (Kevin Hart), to teach him to survive in prison. To be clear, director Etan Cohen is asking us to believe that even though James is smart enough to run billion dollar hedge funds, hes also so blatantly ignorant that he thinks Darnell has been in prison just because hes African-American. Ordinarily this would be offensive, but Darnell is in on the joke, and director Cohen gets some good laughs from Darnells wife (Edwina Findley Dickerson) and daughter (Ariana Neal) as a result of the situation. The burden of the bulk of the laughs, however, lands on Mr. Ferrell and Mr. Hart, and while both are game for the challenge, theyre not always effective. James training includes how to fight, survive a riot, always be on guard, etc., and in each scenario the two actors never lack for energy. What they do lack, however, is chemistry, because they never play well off one another. Theyre nearly uncomfortable together, in fact. Its as if theyre consumed with doing their own thing to make sure they appeal to their fan base, forgetting that the collaborative power of comedy is stronger than what an individual can provide. A prime example is when theyre in the makeshift prison yard and Darnell imitates what a contentious African-American, Latin and gay confrontation could feel like. The scene requires Mr. Hart to shift gears in a nanosecond while Mr. Ferrell stands there as the straight man, likely unsure if he should improvise in order to keep the scene going or just let Mr. Hart do his thing. Conversely, Mr. Ferrell later has a moment in which he goes on a trash-talking rant that requires Mr. Hart to just sit and listen. Add to this some truly desperate moments (James having a tough time performing fellatio, and the otherwise cowardly Darnell breaking up a Neo-Nazi party, for example), and you have a comedy that probably reads funny on paper but doesnt play well on the big screen. This is Mr. Cohens first feature directing gig, and no doubt the lack of chemistry between the two leads is in part due to the way the film was shot and edited. Timing, pacing and editing are essential in comedy; a great joke can be delivered perfectly by the actor, but if its not presented correctly, all the humor will be lost. This is not to say that happens all the time in Get Hard, but it happens enough for more jokes to miss than hit. >> Although the poster for Get Hard shows Kevin Hart braiding Will Ferrells hair, this never happens in the lm. h H c a dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com

Epstein (Running Press, $25) Reviewed by Larry CoxREVIEWED BY LARRY COXAudrey Hepburn could appreciate the irony that while she spent years studying ballet, she never became a dancer. And although she didnt devote time to acting during her formative years, she became both a movie and stage star. She was a rare phenomenon who did not have classic movie-star looks. In fact, renowned British photographer and fashion designer Cecil Beaton once described Hepburn as a new type of beauty: huge mouth, flat Mongolian features, heavily painted eyes, a coconut coiffure, long nails without varnish, a wonderfully lithe figure, a long neck, but perhaps too scraggy. What Beaton failed to note is that regardless of the imperfections he saw, Hepburn had a presence that connected both professionally and privately. She appeared in the Broadway production of Gigi when she was 22 years old. In 1953, she made her first film, Roman Holiday, co-starring Gregory Peck. It was a hit, and she began Sabrina the following year. A great deal was riding on Sabrina. The film was crucial to her career, since it w ould prove one way or another if her success in Roman Holiday had been a fluke. It was a difficult project. The script was written as they went along, and Humphrey Bogart and William Holden, her co-stars, disliked each other. The set was often hostile and tense. Despite difficulties, when Hepburn and Holden met it was electrifying, and their attraction gave Sabrina an authenticity that made the film a major hit. Through extensive interviews, author Edward Epstein reveals for the first time the on-set romance between these two film legends, and how it became a common thread in both their lives.

FLORIDA WRITERSAn exciting account of an astounding engineering achievement Water to the Angels: William Mulholland, His Monumental Aqueduct, and the Rise of Los Angeles by Les Standiford. Ecco. 336 pages. Hardcover, $28.99. Can statistics be exciting? In the case of Les Standifords energetic presentation of this enormous undertaking, the quantitative facts are essential and astounding. The goal was simple: to find a way for a small desert town to flourish. The lack of an adequate water supply circumscribed that possibility. William Mulholland had the vision a vision many doubted and quite a few mocked. Mr. Mulholland designed an aqueduct system to bring copious amounts of fresh water from 223 miles away via the power of gravity. Through landscapes often beautiful, but remote and stubbornly resistant to conventional reshaping methods, crews working under Mr. Mulhollands leadership reshaped the flow of rivers, built conduits above and below ground and established a network of dams incrementally taking the water from higher to lower levels. Before the aqueduct could be built, however, an infrastructure was needed to provide transportation, electricity and the housing, nourishment and medical care for the countless workers who would be involved in the project. Because much of this construction would be through a mountainous region, equipment had to be invented and fashioned to solve engineering problems never before faced. A self-taught Irish immigrant, Mr. Mulholland was up to the task that took six years and cost $23 million. How did the fellow find himself in the position to do this job? To what extent did his colossal, confident and forthright personality predict the course and eventual outcome of this venture? These are among the questions the author answers in a book that is at once biography, history and science. Such projects need to be sold. Where does the money come from? What vested interests have to be satisfied? What kind of water and property rights need to be obtained? Mr. Standiford clarifies the economic and political issues, which are also enormous in scale. Indeed, often these issues threatened to cripple the endeavor. Such gigantic undertakings are a bet on the future. For Los Angelinos, the bet paid off big if you think immensity is desirable. Fresh water became more plentiful and less expensive, making all kinds of expansion possible. Confidence in the future of Los Angeles brought plenty of investment capital. Transforming waterpower into electric power helped to sell and sustain the aqueduct system. Though people in the northern communities affected by the aqueduct construction often complained about the projects negative impact on their property values, it is likely that some of those communities gained substantial benefits. The project, and the enhanced water and electric power system, were and still are an employer. Mr. Standiford provides a fine analysis of the pros and cons, sorting out the claims, the facts and the rumors. He also paints glorious pictures of the region around the Owens River (the source for the aqueduct flow), the Owens Valley and other scenic areas along the aqueducts path. These wellwrought descriptions make us wonder if building the aqueduct and the associated dams necessitated ecological damage. This, too, would be a cost to set against the benefits. Given the unparalleled scope of the Los Angeles aqueduct project the difficult terrain, the knotty engineering problems and the magnitude of the legal and financial issues one can be amazed at how accurate the authors timetable and budget turned out to be. Of course there were setbacks now and again, but most were resolved smoothly and effectively. One full-fledged disaster, however, sullied Mr. Mulhollands reputation and seemed to suddenly change this robust figure into a fading old man. This was the March 1928 collapse of the St. Francis Dam with the attendant flooding, property damage and loss of life. Approximately 600 people died, a number exceeded only by the San Francisco Earthquake in 1906. Mr. Standiford, experienced in crafting similarly fascinating slices of American history beginning with Last Train to Paradise: Henry Flagler and the Spectacular Rise and Fall of the Railroad that Crossed an Ocean (2003) has done an outstanding job recreating an epoch, a changemaking enterprise and a larger-than-life American. If he hadnt before been recognized as a major exemplar of the American Dream and of dreaming big William Mulholland, certainly not a man without flaws, can be recognized now in the full dimension of his astounding achievement and remarkable personality.

Puzzle jugs that trick bar patrons can be traced back to the 15th century or even earlier. By the middle of the 17th century, puzzle jugs large enough to hold about two cups of beer were made by many pottery companies in England. Almost all had decorations related to drinking, plus unusual cut-out designs and a rounded rim with protruding spouts. There often was a poem that encouraged a bet with a drinker to test if he could drink without spilling. The idea persists. George Ohr, the early 1900s pottery genius from Biloxi, Miss., made small puzzle mugs that held just one cup of beer. Early puzzle jugs from Liverpool, Leeds, Bristol and Doulton, as well as 19th century jugs from Cambrian Pottery, Swansea, Sunderland, Ridgway and others, all relied on the same puzzle. Of course the pierced holes made it impossible to tip the jug without spilling liquid, but to win the wager, you had to drink the contents of the jug. It was a simple trick. The rounded rim had one hollow spout that was used as a straw to suck the drink thru the hollow handle. It led to the inside and the contents of the jug. Smart bar patrons should not have been fooled twice. Today, there are copies of early jugs that sell for $75 to $150 and antique examples that are $150 to over $1,000. They are all fun on April Fools Day. Q: My husband and I bought a hexagonal occasional table at an Atlanta flea market about 40 years ago. The top is about 30 inches across. It has a lower caned shelf and turned legs with carved stretchers. A metal tag underneath says H. Pander & Zonen, Den Haag, Amsterdam, Rotterdam. The table is in good condition with original finish. Wed like to sell it. Any idea of its history? A: The Pander family was in business in the Netherlands for over 100 years. In 1855, Klaas Pander started making rush mats for fisherman. His son, Hendrik, opened a furniture workshop, with model rooms displaying furniture, in 1887. It became H. Pander & Zonen (H. Pander & Sons) and eventually was one of the largest furniture companies in the country. H. Pander & Sons bought an airplane-manufacturing company in 1924 and made small planes, as well as furniture, until 1934. The company had offices or factories in The Hague, Amsterdam, and Rotterdam. It went out of business in 1985. Q: My scale was in an upstairs room in my grandparents old farm house as far back as I can remember. I have the original envelope with instructions on how to use it. The directions say its a 10-ton capacity wagon scale. There is a date of -10-41 in one corner. Do you have any information about this scale and what its worth?

Today the company, called Fairbanks Scales, sells a wide variety of scales. It has corporate offices in Kansas City, Missouri. There are a limited number of buyers of old wagon scales. It probably would have to be sold at a farm auction. Q: I have a white cup and saucer marked Pyroceram Brand Tableware By Corning. What is Pyroceram? A: Pyroceram was developed at Corning in the 1950s. The process was discovered by accident in 195 2, when a piece of glass was overheated and turned into a white glass-ceramic material that was break-resistant. The material originally was used on rocket-nose cones because it was transparent to radar. It was used to make CorningWare cookware beginning in 1958. The cookware was resistant to sudden extreme temperatures and could go directly from freezer to stovetop to table. Millions of pieces of the cookware and restaurant ware were made. Your cup and saucer are part of the line made for restaurants. Original Pyroceram was not made after the late 1990s. World Kitchen bought Cornings consumer products division in 1998 and began making CorningWare in 2001. The original Pyroceram material was brought back in 2009. Four Pyroceram cups and saucers sold online for $12 and a cereal bowl sold for $7. Tip: Always carry a slab of marble with the thin edge up. The weight of the piece, if carried the wrong way, could crack the marble. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Sometimes, though, declarer must not get so carried away with guarding against an unfavorable division that he winds up more sorry than safe. Take this case where South was in four spades and West led the king of hearts. Declarer won with dummys ace and, intent on guarding against a 4-1 trump division the only real threat to his contract led the nine of spades and let it ride after East followed low. West won with the jack, cashed the heart queen and continued with the jack. Declarer ruffed and mulled over how to handle the remaining trumps. One possibility was to enter dummy with a diamond, lead a trump and repeat the finesse. This would succeed if East had all the remaining spades, but would lose if West had started with two or three spades including a second honor card. In that case, South would lose two spades, a heart and a club for down one. South decided that the remaining spades were much more likely to be divided 2-1 than 3-0, so he cashed the ace. When West showed out, declarer had to lose another trump trick, and he finished down one. South had the right idea about protecting against a 4-1 trump break, but he went about it the wrong way. A superior approach is to cash the spade ace first and then lead a low spade to dummys nine. In the actual deal, East wins with the ten, but declarer later picks up Easts queen via a finesse. The suggested play has more to recommend it than the obvious advantage of averting a guess on the second round of trumps. It is also the correct play mathematically. Cashing the ace first guards against Wests having started with the singleton ten, jack or queen, while the first-round finesse wins only when West started with the singleton two or three. The odds are therefore 3-to-2 in favor of playing the ace first. Its Local. Its Entertaining. Its Mobile. Got Download?Its FREE!

Clausen Properties is sponsoring the production. The year is 1941. The location is a small house next to a cemetery in Brooklyn. In the house live two kind, thoughtful spinster sisters, Martha and Abby Brewster, who have developed a very bad habit: They murder lonely old men who have some sort of religious affiliation, and they consider doing it an act of charity. The sisters bugle-blowing nephew Teddy (as in Roosevelt) takes their victims to the Panama Canal (the cellar) and buries them. Another nephew, drama critic Mortimer Brewster, arrives one evening only to find a dead man in the window seat. Then nephew Jonathan returns after years of fleeing the authorities due to his unofficial practice of killing people and using their faces to change his own (unfortunately, he looks like Boris Karloff, due to the poor craftsmanship of his alcoholic sidekick, Dr. Einstein). As the story unfolds, each character tries to find resolve in their suddenly upside-down lives. The cast includes many Marco Island favorites along with some new faces to the local stage. Judy Daye and Carol Lewis play Abby and Martha Brewster, respectively. A. Megna has the role of Teddy, and Jared Wagner plays Mortimer. Karen Anglin appears as Mortimers fianc Elaine, and John Moulton has the role of Jonathan. Rounding out the cast are: Douglas Degelsmith as Elaines Father, the Rev. Dr. Harper; Jon Anglin as Officer Brophy; Cathy Clausen-Neff as Officer Klein; Bill Filbin as Mr. Gibbs, who hopes to rent a room from the Brewster sisters; Konstantin Spartalis as Dr. Einstein; and Richard Joyce as Officer OHara, a would-be playwright. The Marco Island Historical Museum is at 180 S. Heathwood Drive. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, April 9-18. Tickets for $20 can be purchased at the museum gift shop and at Centennial Bank on East Elkcam Circle, by calling 394-0080 or online at theateronmarco.com.

We all have lied, weve all been lied to, weve all told the truth, weve all gotten into trouble because of telling the truth, says Cody Nickell, director of the Gulfshore Playhouse production that runs April 4-26 at The Norris Center in Naples. Weve all fallen in love, weve all wanted to be in love, he adds. The ideas in this play are universal. Originally a 17th century farce by Pierre Corneille, The Liar has been updated and adapted by David Ives. It won the Charles MacArthur Award for Outstanding New Play at the Helen Hayes Awards in Washington, D.C., in 2011. Mr. Ives, who wrote the Tonynominated Venus in Fur, is also known for his adaptation of Feydeaus farce, A Flea in Her Ear, and Mark Twains Is He Dead? And his collection of short plays, Lives of the Saints, just closed Off-Broadway in late March. Mr. Ives told NPR in an interview that the character of Dorante in The Liar is constantly stepping very close to the edge of an incredible cliff with his lies, and yet he always finds his way out of them. And so the language had to be a high-wire act as well. The play is written in rhyming couplets, in iambic pentameter, which is the meter Shakespeare used. But its not a museum piece, Mr. Nickell promises. Theres nothing sitting on a pedestal there. Audiences will understand every word thats said. The rhymes and off-rhymes lend a buoyancy and a bubbliness to the play, he says, adding the hardest work for audience members will be to keep from doubling over in laughter. The adaptation fuses the baroque with glam rock of the late 1970s-early s, he says, with a little bit of rock n roll thrown in as well. Its a fun, sexy romp, he says. No one will leave this play saying, I didnt understand it. Because the play deals with lying and truth-telling, we talked with Mr. Cody and the two leads, John Keabler and Scott Aiello about lying, what is true, and whether the nature of acting owes anything to lying. Heres what they had to say:Director Cody Nickell Whats the best lie youve ever told? My best, most joyful lie was when I proposed to my wife. We were working at Shakespeare Santa Cruz, and I took her camping. I had a friend in the cast contact a florist to make a bunch of beautiful flower arrangements We left the campsite and went to the beach for a whole day, and Id prearranged that my friend would deliver all these flower arrangements (while we were gone) and set them up around the camp site. Which he did, and it was lovely. Im terrible at keeping secrets, but this was one of my favorite lies I ever told, a lie of omission. It may be one of the only ones Ive ever been able to keep. What is the one true thing you know? The one true thing I know is that if people try hard enough and get rid of their ego, anybody can get along. Youve got try really hard. Are actors better liars in real life? I think theres a whole section of people in my life who assume actors are not to be trusted, because they lie for a LIARFrom page 1Director Cody Nickell Actor John Keabler

Im a pretty terrible liar in real life, and ultimately, if an actor is doing their job well theyre not lying, theyre pretending, theyre being. Its something else other than a lie. Is acting lying? No, not for me think lying is the opposite of acting. Its holding something back. But in this play, the way the character spins these lies, its putting this wonderful imagination into the world, and ultimately everything works out for the best The lies are more imaginative and more active than I think the pejorative idea of a lie is: obfuscation, equivocation and malice. Theres not really any malice in this play.Actor John Keabler(Dorante, the liar) What is the best lie youve ever told? Ive been lying to myself for years now that I can do this as a career, that its economically, seriously feasible for me to do this. I do it because I love it. Theres nothing else to do. What is the one true thing you know? As Geronte, my characters father, says in the play: Everyone is just making things up as we go. In any business, any career, any family, I think were just making it up as we go. And we dont have to follow certain rules. What attracts me to acting, to the arts in general, is that artists kind of sit back and say, Wait a minute, I dont think thats the way it has to be, I dont have to follow a certain tradition. Life can be Are actors better liars in real life? I think actors overall have a better imagination Their wit, their sarcasm, their ability to meld into something else is better than most peoples. Theyre used to that. It doesnt necessarily make them better liars. I think their word play and wit is better which does aid in lying, I must say. Is acting lying? I think only in the sense, its lying to yourself that youre feeling these emotions. You are in a room where everyone is looking at you, yet you lie to yourself that no one is judging you, no one is questioning your choices. Youre in a film and youve got cameras and a whole crew is looking at you. Youre lying to yourself that at the moment its real, and it gets easier to believe that. Thats the difference between actors who are just starting out and those who are experienced. (The ones who have been doing it for a while) shed that little voice in their head thats telling them it isnt real. Youre lying to yourself, which is not hurtful most of the time.Actor Scott AielloPlays Cliton, who cannot tell a lie. Whats the best lie youve ever told? I lived in Italy for a little while, about a year, when I was in school Italians had trouble with my name, with saying Scott. John is really my first name, so I called myself Giovanni while I was in Italy, mainly because it is my real first name and was easier for the Italians to pronounce. When I got back to the States, I took a job in an Italian restaurant. While I was there, I missed Italy a lot, so just for kicks I would introduce myself as Giovanni (to the customers.) It got me better tips! And I would go so far as to do it with an Italian accent. It was a big gag with the staff, who would get a kick out of it. Until my father came in one night and he asked for Scott to wait on him. And they told him there was no Scott working at this Italian restaurant, because by then they were all calling me Giovanni. He saw me, and he pointed me out to them. They said, Oh, thats Giovanni. My father has a great sense of humor. And ever since then hes never let me live that one down. Sometimes just to razz me he will call me Giovanni. What is the one true thing you know? My little sister loves me. And I love her, too. Are actors better liars? It all depends on the human being. I cant say that specifically of actors. Ive met actors who are excellent liars and those who arent. Im one of the latter. I cant tell a lie. Im real bad. Is acting lying? I think acting is truth-telling It took me a long time to learn that. Its a very fine distinction, but I know the difference between pretending to be someone and just being and reacting as that person. The difference between pretending to be a character and actually just being that character out on stage and reacting to everything: the lines, the physicality, as that person would, then it become effortless, and I equate effortlessness with truth. I think I equate and this is a personal thing tension with lying. I can feel myself seize up, my body, my brain I equate that with non truth-telling. When Im telling the truth, Im a better actor.

Sticks Up for Reading night CELEBRITY EXTRALange bows out of latest American Horror Story BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: Can you give me any scoop on the new American Horror Story? Im going through some serious withdrawals! Jeanette F., via emailA: Well, Ive got good news and bad news. Jessica Lange, whos been a mainstay on the scary series since the first season, announced at Paleyfest that she would not be returning for the shows 13-episode fifth season. She told the AHS panels moderator: Im done ... Weve had a great run here. I have absolutely loved doing these four characters that Ive had the opportunity to play, and in all madness, I love the writers and (executive producer) Ryan (Murphy), and the insanity of shooting it. Along with the previously announced addition of Lady Gaga to the cast of American Horror Story: Hotel, weve also learned that Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson and Wes Bentley will be joining the series this go-round. There are unofficial reports that Kathy Bates and Evan Peters also are set to return. AHS: Hotel will premiere in late October on FX. Q: Can you tell me when/if The Last Ship and Murder in the First will be back? Chris K., Summerfield, Fla.A: The Eric Dane-starring TNT action/ drama series will be back this June for its second season with 13 new episodes (up from 10 in the first season). Murder in the First the TNT crime drama starring Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson will be back for a 10-episode second season sometime this summer. Q: Can you tell me if the TV series The Bridge will have another season, and if so, when will it start? Peggy E., via emailA: If youre talking about the American series starring Diane Kruger, then I am sad to tell you that FX canceled it after two seasons. However, if you are referring to the far-superior Danish/Swedish original version of the series also known as Bron and Broen it has been renewed for a third season. You can catch up on the first two 10-episode seasons on Hulu. LANGE

Lo and behold, we found a space right in front of McCormick & Schmicks and raced in ahead of what we were sure would be a horde to follow. We were wrong and enjoyed our lunches outside in peace and quiet. My fancy mac n cheese really hit the spot and felt indulgent for a mid-day meal, considering it featured rigatoni coated in a rich four-cheese sauce and studded with shrimp, quartered andouille sausage and tomatoes, all topped with crunchy and buttery breadcrumbs. The portion was also surprisingly large for lunch, so I packed it up and enjoyed the rest at home that evening. Lindsey Nesmith firstname.lastname@example.org
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC38 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 2-8, 2015 PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Araya Sushi Asian Grill, 2650 Immokalee Road, Naples; 593-3344. The creators of Fuji Sushi Bar & Asian Bistro, Jon and On Augsondthung, have opened a second, somewhat more upscale space with Araya. Like Fuji, it offers a wide range of sushi as well as cooked Thai and Japanese dishes. Stop in for the stellar sushi, but stay to explore the cooked fare. Try any of the dozen yakitori items (priced by the skewer) and specials such as sauted chicken livers with asparagus or mainstays including spicy tuna nachos and carpaccio of hamachi with jalapenos. A Tiger Roll (shrimp tempura with asparagus, avocado, rice, seaweed, sesame seeds, masago, smoked salmon, eel and wakame) was huge and wonderful. A nightly special, the Mummy Roll, contained spicy blue crab in rice paper with mango sauce, tobiko and gold flake. Grilled salmon with baby bok choy and Lychee Duck Curry were as delicious as the sushi. For dessert, try the Tokyo Sundae (sticky rice, green tea ice cream, red bean paste, lychee and coconut). Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2014 Bruninas Pizza and Pasta, 4330 Thomasson Drive, Hammock Cove, Naples; 530-0084. Pizza is the main draw at this bustling neighborhood joint, but a menu of moderately priced Italian classics is available as well, and its just fine to show up in your shorts and T-shirt. Mushrooms stuffed with cheese, spinach and garlic and fried calamari were good, although the calamari arrived late. Salads were fresh, with tasty balsamic vinaigrette, but our entrees arrived before we had much time to enjoy them. Shrimp over pasta with pesto cream sauce was a nightly special. The shrimp were big and juicy, but the sauce was disappointingly bland. Better were the gnocchi a la Mamma, tender-chewy pillows topped with mushrooms, spinach, white wine, garlic and olive oil. Service was pleasant but spotty, with long periods when our waiter was absent. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2014 The Counter Custom Built Burgers, 9110 Strada Place, Mercato, Naples; 566-0644. If its burgers, fries and sodas the kids want, heres a place at which everyone will feel happy about their meal. The Counter serves Angus beef from humanely raised cows free of hormones and antibiotics. (Or select vegan, bison, turkey or chicken burgers.) Then choose from a dozen cheeses, 32 toppings, 23 sauces, six buns (one is gluten free) or a salad. Milkshakes come in regular or adult versions (with a shot of your favorite alcoholic beverage). I enjoyed a turkey burger with Gruyere, cole slaw, grilled pineapple, roasted corn and black bean salsa, sauted onions and ginger soy glaze on a wheat bun. To my surprise, the whole thing even held together. My companion liked the Old School burger (beef with Tillamook cheddar, lettuce, red onion, pickle, tomato and red relish). Sweet potato fries and crispy onion strings were just right, as were cocktails and a brownie with ice cream, caramel and chocolate sauce. Great service, too. Full bar. Food: Service : Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2013 Dollys Produce Patch & Eatery, 9930 Bonita Beach Road S.E., Bonita Springs; 992-8939. For 18 years, this low-slung box of a building with white lace curtains and Scandinavian tchotchkes has been sustaining locals and tourists with hearty breakfasts and speedy inexpensive lunches. Its homemade pies are the stuff of legend, with soaring meringues and incredibly flaky crusts. Lunchtime brings homemade soups, burgers made with hand-ground beef, sandwiches piled high with deli meat and great salads. After all the half-pound Black Angus patties with gourmet toppings of smoked gouda, baby arugula and balsamic ketchup Ive eaten in the name of the current burger craze, the Dollys burger offered a welcome retreat to streamlined ingredients and uncomplicated flavors. You can and should upgrade from chips to sweet potato fries, which are thickly hand-cut to maximize flavor and coated with a light, flaky batter for extra crispness. Soft drinks served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2014 La Bazenne, 474 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 682-8623. Whether its breakfast, lunch or dinner you fancy, La Bazenne is prepared to serve it to you with proper French style and flair. A cozy little spot on Fifth Avenue next to Osteria Tulia, its operated by Martine and Bernard Giacometti, whose parents have operated the original La Bazenne in France for 40 years. Whether its crepe, salads or burgers early in the day or the more complex and interesting dinner lineup, Chef Andy Hydes fare is tres magnifique. The octopus salad is outstanding (rendered tender via sous vide preparation) and served with broccoli rabe, cherry tomatoes and lemon verbena pesto. A chevre starter with cherry tomatoes, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds and mixed greens was also excellent. Entrees of diver scallops with English peas, scallops and pommes fondants were elegant and perfect, as was the Crisp Lavender Duck with Florida orange glaze, kohlrabi and pommes almond. A cheese plate and aphrodisiaque crepe provided a wondrous ending to a flawless meal. Beer and wine served.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 2-8, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C39 CUISINEThe Local offers tasteful blend of healthy food, casual ambienceThe name says it all yet does it so succinctly the less observant among us might miss it altogether. Even though The Local has been serving farm-to-table and seato-table food in a fairly obvious location just off Pine Ridge Road for close to two years, I still run into people who have yet to experience its charms. Fresh produce, meats and seafood, craft beers and a carefully chosen wine list all delivered by a most agreeable staff in a comfortable, rustic atmosphere make this one of my favorite restaurants in Naples. Chef/owner Jeff Mitchell trained at the Culinary Institute of America and its obvious when you taste his extravagantly layered sauces. Outstanding sauces are one of the hallmarks of CIA graduates, and Mr. Mitchell does his alma mater proud. The Local has matured from its opening days in May 2013. Mr. Mitchell has migrated from managing the place to the front lines of the kitchen following the departure of his friend and colleague, Rich Demarse, last year. He revels in the deliveries of fresh foods that show up each morning and in figuring out what the days specials will be. Its unlikely youll dine anywhere else on food thats fresher than what youll get here. Most of it comes from Southwest Florida places including Worden Farm in Punta Gorda, Herban Gardens in North Fort Myers, Twelve Seasons Farm in Fort Myers and Inyoni Farm in Naples. Daily specials (of which there are always many) are scrawled in a rainbow of colors on chalkboards posted on the wall and are also printed out for slightly easier reading along with the regular menu (which also changes with the availability of ingredients). We arrived a bit before 6 p.m. on a Thursday and had no trouble securing a comfortable booth; an hour later, however, the place was fairly well packed. The Local doesnt take reservations, so early birds get the best spots. Considering The Locals emphasis on healthy fare, dont expect a basket of bread to be delivered as soon as you sit down. Instead, there are fresh raw veggies carrots, celery, cauliflower and white bean hummus drizzled with extra virgin olive oil, a light and satisfying nibble thats just right while you ponder the menu options and savor a glass of wine or a craft beer. From the appetizer menu, I can highly recommend the Pine Island clams in coconut red curry ($16) or anything, for that matter, that is lucky enough to be bathed in that incredible sauce thats sweet and spicy, redolent of basil and studded with crunchy bits of scallion. Next time I just might order it as a beverage. Not quite as successful were the Palmetto Creek Farms pork gyoza in ginger lemongrass broth ($15). The bowl filled with the plump dumplings looked lovely, but the broth was very mildly seasoned both the ginger and lemongrass quite understated and it saturated the gyoza, rendering them soggy. From the entree specials, we tried the pan-seared triggerfish ($24) with mango and avocado salsa. The flaky white fillet was expertly cooked, so that the outside had a golden crust while the interior remained moist. The salsa was good, but even without it this fish would have been a winner. It comes with a choice of two side dishes; our blackened potatoes and beets with shallots and sherry vinegar proved fine accompaniments. Mustard roasted all-natural Joyce Farms free-range chicken breast with mustard breadcrumbs, soft-boiled egg and pecorino sauce ($27) was an imaginative and delicious way to dress up what diners sometimes take for granted. Full of flavor on its own, the poultry was enhanced by the seasonings and cheese that coated it. A sweet potato cake and roasted beets partnered well with it. We shared a piece of vanilla cake with raspberry filling and buttercr eam icing ($6) that was moist, with rich raspberry flavor and an icing that wasnt cloyingly sweet. In addition to full-size desserts, the restaurant offers miniatures for those who just want a couple of bites. The Local is the kind of place where its perfectly acceptable to hang out even if you arent going to eat a full meal. A large bar at the back of the room is just right for enjoying a glass of wine or a well-chilled beer with friends. Those who sit here also get a good look at the cakes, cookies and cupcakes displayed under glass on the counter, all baked fresh on the premises.
