If it werent for Project HELP in Collier County, they would be. Since its founding in 1986, Project HELP has remained the areas sole state-certified source of crisis intervention. In addition to operating a sexual assault hotline that receives about 2,000 calls per year, Project HELP provides forensic exams for those victims, court advocacy, support groups, individual and family counseling, programs for homicide and suicide survivors and a many other services for people who are suffering through traumatic and violent events, all on a shoestring budget of $350,000 annually. Theres always a need for funding, says Project HELP Executive Director Michelle English. It goes from the smallest things to the largest things I have a staff that is so phenomenal, and as an agency I cant offer them health benefits.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 16-22, 2015 Bring Your Highest Expectations LIVINGSTON ROADPINE RIDGE ROAD EXIT 107WHIPPORWILL LANE N COMMENTARY For PresidentFor some time now, many Americans have recognized that presidential candidates often drift like rudderless yachts away from the row-boat experiences of ordinary citizens. Since a conservative Supreme Court has established campaign finance laws that allow billionaires to unduly sway elections, many Americans also recognize that something has to change. It wont be the campaign finance laws not in time for the 2016 election, which is only 18 months away. And probably not anytime soon thereafter. So that means the temper and quality of the candidates themselves must change. If we as a people cannot inure ourselves to the propagandistic influence of huge wealth, perhaps we can require our leaders to inure themselves. From now on in the United States, presidential candidates should be required to demonstrate new levels of competence, experience and understanding, as well as resistance to big-bucks influence. How? By entering and graduating from a demanding United States Presidential Academy. Such an elite academy would require the discipline, brains and toughness that our military academies demand of their graduates, but without some of the martial trappings. In loose terms, the education of a president would be based on sharing and understanding the experiences of his or her fellow Americans. USPA graduate goals should include: Understanding the mindsets of working people and nonor under-working people. Acquiring a strong education in history, literature and the sciences, especially earth sciences. Mastering the old virtues of our greatest presidents, to develop the characters of Washington and Adams, Lincoln and the Roosevelts, Truman, Eisenhower and Kennedy. April, so far, has been a particularly pointed reminder of the need for such an academy. Florida alone has now offered up two of the three candidates Most Likely To Succeed in their quest for the White House in 2016: Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. The third newly announced and Most Likely candidate is Hillary Clinton, who has very little to do with Florida judging by her suntan. As for Jeb Bush, who grew up rich and privileged, and Sen. Rubio, who escaped his working-class roots in West Miami as fast as he could and began (in 2010) spending nights partying on a yacht anchored in the Hamptons and owned by one of the Fanjul brothers (owners of Domino Sugar, Florida Crystals, C&H Sugar, and so on), both are in desperate need of the hard training and preparation implicit in a USPA education. So is Mrs. Clinton, along with the likes of Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Scott Walker on the right, or Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders on the left. All of them need the hard training, since each of them has been caught eyeballing the White House and drooling. Upon reporting for duty, every USPA candidate would be sent out alone to buy his or her clothes at Goodwill, then buy a car for less than $2,000, then pay for gas, insurance and repairs at the nearest used-car lot, then secure an apartment with at least one bedroom, and then work 35 to 40 hours a week at a job paying minimum wage, while supporting two young children alone, for a year. Since the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals might complain about the hardship of such training on children, they could be wind-up dolls, as long as they cried every three hours during the night, defecated regularly into their diapers, and passed their colds to the candidates, while also demanding a lot of attention after daycare which, by the way, each candidate would have to pay for at a rate of $280 a week, per child. The second and third years at the USPA would be devoted almost solely to academic education, punctuated at great length by steady work as ditch-diggers, tomato pickers, Walmart clerks, nurses aides, truck drivers, factory-line workers, janitors, restaurant servers, and fast-food fry cooks. Reading in literature would include The Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the Federalist Papers, several histories of the United States, and the novels, stories, poems and essays of such writers as Cooper, Melville, Twain, Stowe, Alcott, Bellamy, Chopin, Baum, James, Wharton, Sinclair, Wolfe, Cather, Cummings, Dreiser, Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Faulkner, Percy, Porter, Saroyan, Penn Warren, Salinger, Berry, Baldwin, Chandler, Kerouac, Lee, Styron, Porter, Malamud, Morrison, Welty, Erdrich, Allende, Hijuelos, McCarthy, Hilliard, McMurtry, Cisneros, Kingsolver, and few hundred others. Training in science would include short expeditions to points ranging from the North Pole to the equator, along with both lab and academic work focusing in particular on climate change and its causes and consequences. Science, by the way, is spelled, S-CI-E-N-C-E (for the benefit of Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz). Finally, each candidate would be required to master several of the skills of Americas greatest elected leaders, starting with combat. In the tradition of George Washington, who had a number of horses shot out from under him and since the U.S. typically has a war or two going somewhere (and if not, we can always start a small one for the candidates) each aspirant would be trained at the U.S. Army Infantry School at Fort Benning, and then dropped into a front-line combat unit. In addition, and in the tradition of Abe Lincoln, the Roosevelts, Truman, Eisenhower and JFK, candidates would have to hold an axe at arms length for an hour, charge up a hill under fire, smoke a long cigar, fire field artillery, plan the invasion of Europe, and drive a PT boat (but better than Kennedy, who managed to get his sunk). Only then, would candidates be allowed to place their names in that sacred sanctuary: the American voting booth. And only then could they list their names under those hallowed words: For President. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 16-22, 2015 The age of the anti-Christian pogromWe live in the era of the anti-Christian pogrom. The slaughter earlier this month at Garissa University College in Kenya that killed nearly 150 people was the latest example of the bloodlust. Usually, such mass-casualty attacks are indiscriminate, but the killers of the Somali-based al-Shabab terror group sought to be exacting during their all-day assault on the largely Christian university. A student told The Associated Press, If you were a Christian, you were shot on the spot. One witness described his best friend begging for his life, pretending to be a Muslim; when he couldnt recite a Muslim prayer, he was shot to death. Another recalls seeing three girls praying for help: The mistake they made was to say, Jesus, please save us, because that is when they were immediately shot. The Obama administrations reaction to this atrocity carried out by Islamic zealots for avowedly religious reasons was typically shorn of any specific reference to what had happened, or why. The administration reverted to its core strength of tightly scripted euphemism. In his statement, President Barack Obama said that innocent men and women were brazenly and brutally massacred. True enough, but he couldnt bring himself to say who had been shot by whom. He vowed to stand with the Kenyan government and people in their efforts to bring communities together, the closest he dared step to the unmistakable religious dimension of the murders. Secretary of State John Kerry urged steadfastness in the fight against violent extremism, the administrations term of art for Muslim extremism. President Obama cant restrain his anger over Bibi Netanyahu saying that Arab voters are turning out in droves prior to the Israeli election, but if coldblooded killers gun down Christians for their faith, he turns to careful verbal gymnastics. As a matter of sheer intellectual honesty, we should be forthright about the religious hatred that motivates attacks on Christians. If the administration worries about playing into the Islamist narrative of the Western crusaders, the 11th century wants its foreign policy back. In country after country, Christian communities are embattled and vulnerable, and obviously in no condition to crusade for anything. They dont want to take back Jerusalem; they want to survive. At Garissa, it was the typical depressing story of insufficient protection from the government, either out of indifference or incompetence or both. Warnings of a coming attack on a university had been ignored. An elite police unit didnt respond to the attack on the university until hours after it had begun. The least we can do is to speak up forcefully about the plight of threatened Christians and urge governments to do more to protect them. It is one of the scandals of our time that the president of Egypt has been a more courageous voice on this than the president of the United States. There will be more Garissa-like attacks to come, demonstrating with heartbreaking starkness the disparity in martyrdom between radical Islam and Christianity. The martyrs of militant Islam strap on suicide vests and commit hellish acts of mass murder; Christianitys martyrs die as innocents, often with a prayer on their lips. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Capital punishment: a dead policy walkingA jury in Boston has returned a guilty verdict on all 30 counts against the Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Now the jury must deliberate on the punishment, which could be either life in prison or death. Capital punishment is outlawed in Massachusetts, but Tsarnaev was tried in federal court, where the death penalty is allowed. The jury will have to decide whether he lives or dies. The case provides a new reason to take a hard look at capital punishment, and why this irreversible, highly problematic practice should be banned. Anthony Ray Hinton is alive today, a free man. But just last week he was on death row in Alabama, where he spent 30 years. Hinton was the 152nd person in the United States to be exonerated from death row, where he spent three decades for a crime he did not commit. He was accused of killing two fast-food restaurant managers in 1985. There were no eyewitnesses, nor fingerprints. Prosecutors alleged that bullets found matched a revolver belonging to Hintons mother. Hinton had ineffective counsel, and no money to mount a credible defense or to hire a genuine expert witness to challenge the ballistics. The American criminal-justice system ... treats you better if youre rich and guilty than if youre poor and innocent, Bryan Stevenson told me. He is the founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, and the attorney who eventually freed Anthony Ray Hinton. The unfair trial was just the beginning. We developed the evidence that showed that these bullets could not be matched to a single gun and that it wasnt Mr. Hintons gun, Stevenson explained. The state then refused for 16 years to even retest the evidence. ... It was really unconscionable that they chose to risk executing an innocent person over risking the perception that they were somehow making a mistake or not being tough on crime. In a remarkable and, according to Stevenson, extremely unlikely turn of events, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to look at Hintons case, and unanimously overturned his conviction. Had they not intervened, I think the risk of a wrongful execution would have been very, very high, Stevenson said. Nearby, in Louisiana, Glenn Ford was released in March 2014, also after three decades on death row. Evidence cleared him of the 1983 fatal shooting of a jewelry-store owner. Now, as a free man, he faces a death sentence of a different kind: stage 4 lung cancer that has spread to his bones, lymph nodes and spine. He is in hospice care, and wasnt strong enough to speak to me this week. But Marty Stroud was. He is the man who prosecuted Glenn Ford 30 years ago, and today regrets that he did so. He now says that Ford had an unfair trial in which key evidence was suppressed by police and the prosecutors, and that Ford lacked the money to mount a proper defense. Moreover, Stroud says, if he had properly done his job at the time, and all the evidence was collected, they would not have even been able to arrest Glenn Ford, let alone try him for the crime. Now, 30 years later, prosecutor Marty Stroud feels differently about capital punishment: I am 100 percent against the death penalty. It is barbaric. And the reason it is barbaric is that it is administered by human beings, and we make mistakes. We are not infallible. In addition to the legal, ethical, racial and economic-injustice arguments against the death penalty, there is a growing practical reason to halt the practice as well. It is becoming harder to obtain the drugs used in lethal injections. European drug companies are refusing to supply the drugs if they are used to kill people. The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) has now joined national organizations of physicians and anesthesiologists in discouraging their members from participating in executions. Dr. Leonard Edloe, a pharmacist with the APhA, told me: We just dont want our pharmacists being involved either in the dispensing of the drugs or the use because, really, the prescriptions are illegal. They arent prescriptions, theyre purchase orders. Because of the shortage of lethal-injection drugs, Utah has reinstated the firing squad, and Oklahoma now uses untested drug combinations, which have caused botched executions with painful, protracted deaths. The deliberations on the Tsarnaev case bring new, heightened attention to the death-penalty debate in the United States. Eighteen states plus the District of Columbia ban the death penalty. But there are still more than 3,000 people on death row in the U.S. As Bryan Stevenson notes, For every nine people that have been executed in this country, we have now identified one innocent person (on death row). The time for a moratorium on executions is now. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

This week it is my pleasure to introduce Derek Perry, the 30-yearold executive director of the Neapolitan Underground. Neapolitan Underground brings alternative, contemporary performance art to town via a wide array of programming. Aside from providing opportunities for arts education such as writing and performance workshops, the organization also hosts unusual events and groups. Fancy a B-movie on a Friday night? How about a chance to dabble in some indie board games? Read on for a glimpse into Mr. Perrys inspiration and motivation. Describe growing up in Naples. When I was 13, a friend brought me to my first hardcore punk show at a warehouse downtown, and it shattered the archetype of Neapolitan culture that I had known up until that point. Meanwhile, the fact that people were secretly creating and demonstrating progressive art in the area came to light. I spent the rest of my youth seeking out this underground subculture, and ultimately began to produce art and events for it. Why did you want to stay in Naples? Many kids went off to university and didnt come back. Not only did we lack the economic incentives for them to return, but we lacked the cultural ones as well. Granted, Im talking about a specific subset of people hipsters, in my mind young people interested in art and society, independent culture and running amok. But the main reason I came back is to help shift and change the Naples paradigm. Neapolitans of my generation grew up resenting the comically oppressive police, lack of interesting things to do and the sheer deficiency of other young people I wanted to make a difference. So, I stayed or, I came back. I stayed for the kids. And I stayed for the cool older people. There are a lot of cool older people retired artists, writers, musicians you name it. Theyre a great resource and influence. Describe your creative experiences and background. High school was about music and theater. Then I went on to form a band with friends that gained international acclaim and commercial success ... Eventually, as things started to burn out with the band, I earned a bachelors degree in public affairs and humanities. Now I work in the nonprofit sector at Habitat for Humanity of Collier County. How did Neapolitan Underground happen? We were inspired by DIY Collectives, or publicly owned spaces devoted to independent art, philosophy, politics and media. Bands play, writers write, records are sold, potlucks are held, money is raised and a whole community exists and supports itself and each other. We wanted to recreate that here and build it on the punk tradition established in Naples throughout the 1990s. Who does Neapolitan Underground cater to? What are its values? The organization primarily caters to its membership whoever is involved and influential at any given time. Our mission statement To support contemporary artists and their art in Southwest Florida allows us to adapt to changing culture over time. When we began, we focused primarily on music and musicians. Recently, writers and improv actors have been involved a lot in the governance of the organization and have shifted the focus. Ultimately, the organization serves all the artists who are interested in participating in the organization. Where do your events take place? Our workshops, lectures and administrative functions occur at our offices off of Domestic Avenue. For other events, we use community centers Fleischmann Park, Golden Gate Community Center, Cambier Park and private locations such as South Street City Oven & Grill and Grumpys Ale House. We had a oneoff performance at the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs and some of our artists performed at the international cheese celebration at Whole Foods last year. What are your long-term plans? Our end goal is a permanent performing arts theater so underground and independent bands can perform in a professional setting. We also want to begin publishing and distributing media that showcases area artists. Do you have any hopes for Naples cultural development? I think there has been an amazing amount of progress, culturally, over the past 15 years There are a lot of interesting and neat things happening before our eyes. With that said, Im hopeful that more artistic venues and opportunities can arise outside Naples city limits, especially as Collier County grows eastward. Specifically, Id like to see CAPA (Cultural and Performing Arts Center) get built and Golden Gate City develop a downtown area. Lindsey Nesmith is really curious about running amok. Does it hurt?

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 16-22, 2015 Foodies of a certain age will remember Julia Child and The French Chef. But the cheery Mrs. Child, who was a household name, died 11 years ago. So who has filled that void? Alton Brown hit the road last year with his Edible Inevitable Tour, which rolled through Florida in February. Robert Irvine also is doing a stage show, with cooking demonstrations and VIP tastings. Perhaps, thanks to TV, theyre the new rock stars. Then again, maybe not, even if the indefatigable Mr. Brown plays a guitar and sings during his show. I think rock stars are todays rock stars, said Gail Simmons, one of the permanent judges on Bravos Top Chef and a star of the recently discontinued The Feed. But I think that chefs are legitimate artists, the way that rock stars are artists. People want to know what they can say. I think its really funny that they do those stadium shows. Theres a difference between hearing what a chef says and wanting to taste their food. Still, the effects are life changing. Before going on Top Chef, Id been a chef for a while. The exposure that television gives you is amazing, said Lindsay Autry, now based in West Palm Beach. I knew people watched Top Chef, but I didnt expect to get the recognition of people in an airport or at Target buying a bottle of ketchup. I feel like I cant leave the house in sweatpants anymore. I have to make myself presentable. After all, she is a star at least in certain circles. I think that chefs are part of pop culture and I dont think thats going away. Top Chef is filming their 13th season right now and that sort of says a lot. Even major networks have some food truck or master chef program, Ms. Autry said. It makes for a much more food-savvy consumer, and it demystified the whole notion of fine cuisine. It allowed people a window into a professional kitchen and to understand the language of a chef. Before that came along, it was a mysterious place where people shouted in French or spit in your food, Ms. Simmons said. The culinary world was a different place three and four decades ago for Norman Love. America really didnt have a cuisine. We were a meat and potatoes country, he said. As we fast-forward over the past few years, I think the TV Food Network has helped to improve culinary chef visibility. Greater visibility means better cuisine. Great chefs, recognizable chefs as they began to blossom, it pushes the whole food supply chain because chefs are driving the need for a higher quality product, said Mr. L ove, a F ort Myers pastry chef and chocolatier whose confections are known nationally. Consumer demand, seeing these all work hand in hand, the consumer wants a better product, the chef wants a better product. He remembered his coming-of-age. Learning in the 0s, growing up in the s and s, when our country was forming the leaders in the culinary world, you could count the number of globally recognized restaurants on one hand, he said, citing Wolfgang Puck, Jeremiah Tower and Alice Waters. And he fondly remembered taping a television segment with the late, great Mrs. Child. I spent two days in Cambridge, Mass., in Julias home. To work with her, as nervous as I was, she was so funny, so witty, so incredibly memorable and inspirational. To sit in her garden was special. It was so significant. Mrs. Child emphasized cooking with fresh, seasonal ingredients, and not taking it all too seriously. Perhaps television has picked up her mantle, with varying degrees of success. The Food Network is providing education and, lets face it, our country is still among the worst for eating processed foods, he said.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 16-22, 2015 NEWS A9 Quotes: What theyre saying I remember a turning point. I was helping Michelle Bernstein do a class in Macys in New York City. Michelle was talking about this Peruvian pepper and five women raised their hands and said, Oh, yeah. And we wondered what we were going to teach them. Chef Lindsay Autry on average consumers food knowledgeTheres such a natural rhythm to what Mother Nature provides. Its really about tuning into her and listening to the seasons. Farmer Lee Jones, an owner of The Chefs Garden, which provides produce to restaurants across the countryWhen you look at culinary education in its current state today, there are obviously more formally educated cooks and chefs than at any time. Not only do you have those who launch their own owneroperated concepts, you have all those new themed shows that highlight chef personalities. Hudson Riehle, senior vice president, research & knowledge group of the National Restaurant Association Its not just the networks that have brought people to recognize that to eat well you dont have to spend all day in the kitchen. We now have gourmet markets that bring fresher, higher quality ingredients to the consumer. The whole ultra-premium movement exists because people are willing to spend a little more on quality. Norman Love, chef and chocolatierThe demand is so much higher because the knowledge is so much more. The guests require first-class stuff. They know the product so much more. Theyll go somewhere else to spend their money. Robert Irvine, chef and star of Restaurant: ImpossibleYoung people are now committed to so many good things, one of which is good food, and understanding the quality. Dennis Max, restaurateurIts funny how people have such a disconnect between what they put in their mouths and what it does holistically. Its all the same conversation. Its all connected. Gail Simmons, culinary expert, cookbook author and judge on Bravos Top ChefDrink has changed. But then again isnt that trendy? Vodka was trendy. Bourbon has become trendy. Distillers always look for a new angle on selling. The millennials, they want their flavored drinks. Vodka is 15 different kinds of flavors. I did a lot of liquor advertising and liquor photography. They were always coming up with different kinds of flavors. They didnt want the 7 and 7s that their fathers were drinking. Barry Seidman, photographer who created iconic advertising images for Absolut Vodka and other beverages
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 16-22, 2015 critics, too, posting images and reviews on Facebook, Yelp and other social media. After all, who doesnt want to see and comment on that exquisite kale salad we just ordered? All that obsession translates into dollars. Restaurant sales in the United States are expected to reach $709.2 billion this year, an increase of nearly $123 billion since 2010, according to the National Restaurant Association. The restaurant industry claimed 25 percent of the food dollar in 1955; that has risen to 47 percent today. People are growing and preparing more of their own food. From 2008 to 2013, the number of home gardens increased by 4 million to 37 million households, while community gardens tripled from 1 million to 3 million, a 200 percent increase, according to the National Gardening Association. Food Network chefs such as Guy Fieri, Robert Irvine, Alton Brown, Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis are now household names, thanks to the 240 or so shows the television network airs 24 hours a day. And it is television that has driven much of that obsession. I think theres a confluence of a lot of things happening at the same time. Theres more interest in food. It sort of becomes a cycle, said Gail Simmons, a judge on Bravos Top Chef. I think that Top Chef has been a huge influence in that way. I cant tell you the number of times someone has said their child wants to become a chef. They know what a chiffonade is or what a quince is. I think that kind of expanding of the horizons in the culinary landscape is why Top Chef was started in the first place. It was a way to get our voices heard by a much wider audience. It cuts across generations. Six-year-olds eat kale salads now, said Top Chef contestant Lindsay Autry. Its amazing that as a nation were so aware of what we eat. I think its because of the abundance of knowledge because of technology. The Food Network has been a huge part of it, said restaurateur Dennis Max, who has opened more than 40 restaurants in Florida over the past four decades. Thats had the single biggest influence. Maybe once you got on TV, and the celebrity chef thing was happening in the s and s. Now you have so many young people wanting to be chefs. When Mr. Max started in the 0s, most chefs in the United States came from a European tradition, and most stayed in the kitchen. Now young people see it as a profession and are striving to do it. They want to get to the front of the house, maybe become the sommelier, he said. All that exposure translates into knowledge for diners. Consumers seek out not only where the food is from but how its prepped, said Hudson Riehle, a senior vice president at the National Restaurant Association. Theres a much higher level of engagement. Each year, the restaurant association lists its top 20 food trends. The top three trends: Locally sourced meats and seafood, locally grown produce and environmental sustainability. In addition to one-third of U.S. households growing at least some of their own food, consumers spent $3.5 billion on food gardening in 2013, up from $2.5 billion in 2008, and a 40 percent increase in five years, according to the National Gardening Associations report, Garden to Table: A 5-Year Look at Food Gardening in America. In s and s, there was such a push for convenience foods. I think as a society we got away from cooking at home, said Ms. Autry. Now I think its great that were getting back to cooking. To me, cooking is a life skill, just like driving a car. People are gaining those life skills, according to Robert Irvine. Or at least theyre buying the goodies. The products that they buy grow 28 percent per year because we want these gadgets, said Mr. Irvine, star of Restaurant: Impossible. We become a society of instant gratification. So, yes, we are cooking more and we are dining out more. And, hopefully, engaging that younger generation. People are still living lives where they dont have time to cook. Just because they talk about it doesnt mean they have time to make it at home, or can afford the fresh, high-quality ingredients, Ms. Simmons said. I have to think that the more you teach young children about food and fresh ingredients, the more development in it, the more theyll talk about it with their family, and I think it will be a huge influence in the next generation. Otherwise, I think were headed in a very dark direction.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 16-22, 2015 NEWS A11 Consumers are better informed than ever, at least when it comes to their food and knowing where and how it was grown. That is at the heart of the farm-totable movement. And that is where The Chefs Garden comes in. The Jones family of Huron, Ohio, had lost its farm in 1983, and revived itself by selling its goods at farmers markets. We felt like our only way to start over was to go to farmers markets. It was instant cash. We could grow it in radishes and greens in 18 to 20 days and convert it to cash, said Farmer Lee Jones. That was in 1986. We met a European-influenced chef and she was looking for things that were grown for flavor, he said. But U.S. growers typically look for high-yield, pest-resistant crops. Here was this woman who was a trained chef who spent time in Europe. She saw people going to their baker every day, butcher every day, and we have lost that in the United States in the push for efficiency, Mr. Jones said. She inspired Mr. Jones, his father and brother. We had very limited land and no capital. We had our know-how on growing and farming. What she said really resonated with my father, he said, adding, A lot of our information comes from agricultural books that are 100 years old or older. The Joneses learned to plant large portions of the 300-acre farm in cover crops to naturally restore nutrients to the soil. Accepting lower yields in favor of not using chemicals or genetically modified plants resulted in better vegetables, and word got around. Chefs such as Daniel Boulud began using the Joneses produce in their restaurants, and The Chefs Garden now counts Charles Mereday of Meredays Fine Dining and Alto jazz club in Naples and Meredays Brasserie in Estero, Thomas Buckley of Nobu South Beach, Barton G. in Miami Beach, and The Breakers, The Mar-a-Lago Club and The Everglades Club, among its clients, as well as hundreds of restaurants across the country. In many ways were trying to go back and use practices that our ancestors used, Mr. Jones said. But the farm also is part of the 21st century. We think that as a small family farm we have to embrace technology. Its the one thing the price goes down on. We use hand-held scanners to download our inventories and every crop has a bar code, he said. We take orders for products that are still growing. That ensures a quick turn-around. A chef can have it on the plate within 24 to 48 hours of harvest, he said. Produce grown elsewhere can languish 10 days to two weeks before it reaches the plate, he said. Our goal is never to be big. Its to be the best that we can be. That also was restaurateur Dennis Maxs goal, though he has emerged as a major culinary force throughout the state Maxs Grille, at Mizner Park in Boca Raton, has been open 24 years. Its neat to be working with people who care as much as we do, he said of the team at Maxs Harvest, his farm-totable restaurant in Delray Beach. They know what farm its from. They know the source of the meat and the fish, and whether the chickens are free range. Farm-to-table has been an important part of his restaurants from the beginning, whether he realized it or not. At Caf Max, back in 1985, at the time, instinctively, I wanted to feature local items, he said. I dont know if I even thought it through that its good for the footprint. Things that were local probably fresher and that made sense. Of course, he had a year-round supply of seafood, thanks to being in Florida. But with produce and cheeses, there wasnt the opportunity. I had very few farms to choose from. In those days, we had to import things from Europe and California and other places across the country, he said. All that has changed over 30 years. Most of our ingredients are from within 50 miles. Each year gets easier and easier and the quality is improving all the time, he said. Fort Myers chocolatier Norman Love also has seen the change. He remembers what food was like when he was a kid in the s and 0s. I grew up in Pennsylvania. Our fish experience was something out of the freezer section, he said. Today, and I live in Florida, yes, but around the United States, beautiful, fresh fish is available everywhere. And why? Maybe its the health benefits. That helped to drive some of that, but in my opinion, I think its culinary television that has really helped to educate consumers. The consumers patronize these places, and say, Hey, I had this fresh kale salad and can go to Publix and buy fresh kale. Food and cooking have been important to Top Chef contestant Lindsay Autry since she was a child. Her grandfather had overseen food service for the local school North Carolina district; once he retired, he owned a peach orchard. I remember going to the grocery store and there wasnt arugula. Iceberg and, sometimes, Romaine were your only options, she said. The farm-totable movement is great, but for me thats always been that way. Cook whats around you. Im glad to see thats happening. And a little knowledge goes a long way. I think people these days, they want a story. They want to know where their food came from and that their tomatoes tell a story. They want to know where they come from, Ms. Autry said. The duck thats on the menu: Does it have a name? Scott SimmonsCultivating a farm-to-table trend Easily one of the biggest technological changes in the food industry has been the advent of high-quality cameras in smartphones, and it has spawned a whole new genre of images food porn. Weve all seen it: A relative or a friend goes to a restaurant, photographs the meal and posts it online. It doesnt matter whether the image is good, bad or really ugly, either. Food is more relevant than ever, thanks to social media, said David Sabin, founder of the Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival, held each December. Whether its through social media thats taken the dining scene to another experience or Yelp or even to be able to pull up an app and have your food delivered to you, or even pulling up your Instagram and taking photos, he said. It has its downside, too. Last year, publications around the world picked up a craigslist rant from an unidentified New York City restaurant, which complained that customers checking in on Facebook and posting food photos from the restaurant delayed service by up to an hour. That clearly hit a nerve; a post on the website Distractify that detailed the entire craigslist post quickly drew more than 750,000 shares and 2,600 comments. Phone use at restaurants can be pesky to other diners, and badly photographed food can be downright unappetizing. With that in mind, here are a few tips for shooting your own food porn: 1. Try to sit in a well-lighted place. 2. Remove extraneous paper, etc., from around the place setting. 3. Make sure iPhone camera is set to HDR; if not an iPhone, make sure phone camera is set to highest density image possible. 4. Hold phone 14 to 18 inches away from food. 5. Try to shoot at about a 60-degree angle dont hold camera above food that tends to flatten it. 6. Take four or five rapid images, moving the phone each time to vary the angle. 7. Avoid using flash; it casts unnecessary shadows and can disturb other diners. Depending on the place, you can ask a server to use your phone to photograph the dish before it leaves the kitchen. 8. Put the phone away and enjoy your meal. Scott SimmonsSocial media and the advent of food porn Hold your phone or camera in front of your food, rather than over it. Hold phone about 14-18 inches away from the food at a 60-degree angle. Check your photo and upload it to social media. Put the phone aside and enjoy your meal.COURTESY PHOTOFarmer Lee Jones The Chefs Garden helped bring farm-to-table to a national level. ELLIOT TAYLOR / FLORIDA WEEKLY

Va., resulted in the arrest of six people from the same family, trafficking in stolen power tools (including one man who traded a leaf blower, hedge trimmer and weed trimmer for Percocet pills). However, a month later, members of an even more charming family were caught in raids in Elyria, Ohio. Officers from three jurisdictions arrested 34 people all related to each other in connection with a $400,000 drug operation.Government in action The predawn line in March actually started forming at midnight, snaking around the building in Maitland, Fla., but it wasnt for concert tickets. The dozens of people needed coveted visitor passes just to speak to an IRS agent because budget cuts and personnel reductions have limited services. I just came here to verify my identity, said one frustrated taxpayer, who arrived at 8 a.m. and would not be served that day. The agency said its budget had been cut by $1 billion since the congressional sequestration in 2011. Nope, They Havent Grown Back Yet: Canadas Department of Veterans Affairs requires any vet receiving disability benefits to have a doctor recertify the condition annually including people like Afghan war double-leg amputee Paul Franklin. He complained to Canadian Broadcasting Corp. News in March that he had been harshly threatened with loss of benefits if he failed to file (even though the department told CBC News that it might perhaps relax the certification requirement to every third year). Wait, what? Several theaters in Denmark reported in March that they had begun adding subtitles to Danish-language films, because so many customers complained that the dialogue was incomprehensible. Apparently, it is widely known that spoken Danish is harder to understand than the written, but Copenhagens website The Local reported that actors had rebelled at improving their diction, claiming that their mumbling adds realism to the films. Attention to Detail: Major League pitcher Max Scherzer, new this season to the Washington Nationals, informed manager Matt Williams in March, according to a New York Times report, that he requires assistance when he warms up during daily practice sessions. He spoke of the importance of simulating actual game conditions, and since Scherzer is a starting pitcher, he needed someone to stand beside him and hum The StarSpangled Banner before he begins his practice pitching. PerspectiveLawyers Brendan and Nessa Coppinger live in a Washington, D.C., row house next door to a tobacco user, whose smoke seeps into their unit, and (especially since Nessa is pregnant) the Coppingers have filed a $500,000 lawsuit against the neighbor. However, the anti-corruption website Republic Report found that one of Nessa Coppingers clients is Suncoke Energy, which is being sued by four Ohio residents who allege that Suncoke does to them what Coppingers neighbor does to her and her fetus. (Suncokes clouds or haze, containing particulates of lead, mercury, arsenic, chromium, creosote, coal tar pitch and other alarming substances, allegedly threatens the neighbors health and property values.) The continuing crisis Superman: While thousands of Japanese women accept commercial pornographic movie roles, only a dwindling number of males (by one estimate, only 30 industrywide) are available to pair with them (stallions on call, according to one producer). That makes the undisputed king of Japanese porn, Shimiken, 35, in such demand that he works as many as six movies a day with few days off. His oeuvre, according to a double entendreladen March profile in Details magazine, includes 7,000 films, with at least 7,500 co-stars, including, once, 72-year-old twins. To maintain his vigor, he hits the gym fanatically and downs mineral supplements and complex amino acids but no Viagra. I havent had to use it, he said (adding, after a pause, yet). Among Colorados legal contortions to improve mass murderer James Holmes chances of getting a fair trial, officials in January called more than 9,000 people to choose its jury of 12 (plus 12 alternates) who will somehow surmise whether the Aurora theater shooter was legally sane at the time he killed 12 and wounded 70. The 9,000 first had to complete lengthy questionnaires, with thousands returning for individual interrogation, and many for follow-up screening. (Among the prospects the judge encountered was one man skeptical of the death penalty except in the case of a zombie apocalypse. Said Judge Carlos Samour Jr., You meet some interesting people in this job.) Unclear on the conceptSome states that rushed to enact systems to evaluate schoolteachers by the test scores of their students left the details of such regimens for later, resulting, for example, in absurdities like the Washington, D.C., public school custodians and lunchroom workers who a few years ago were being evaluated, in part, by student test scores in English and math. In March, a New York public school art teacher, writing in The Washington Post, complained that his coveted effective rating one year had dropped to developing simply because his schools student math score had fallen. Furthermore, since he is now developing, he must file plans for improving his performance (i.e., how, from art class, he can raise math scores among students he does not teach).

Girls Going Places conference has openings for students, mentorsThe 16th annual Girls Going Places Entrepreneurship Conference sponsored by Alliance Financial Group takes place Wednesday, May 6, at Florida Gulf Coast University. The event brings approximately 140 teen women together with about 40 women business owners, executives and entrepreneurs for activities and discussions that introduce the young women to the areas of leadership, entrepreneurship and financial responsibility. A few openings remain for participants and mentors. In our changing economy, financial independence and security are on the minds of young people, says Lynne Tarman, Girls Going Places conference director. Children are watching their parents deal with jobs that are being down-sized and they may struggle themselves to obtain employment while in school. Teens need to understand the opportunity exists to make a job as well as to take a job.

These heroes dont have a cape or super powers. They look just like you, armed with nothing more than a few dollars they are willing to share. Avery, age 6 Leukemia patient Naples, FL Will you be her hero? Just give what you can at ChildrensHospitalGoal.org. Her favorite hero?Program revs students up for careers as heavy equipment mechanics SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYIn the fall of 2010, The Immokalee Foundation introduced the heavy equipment mechanics training program at Immokalee Technical Center, thanks to the guidance and support of Don Fites, the former CEO of Caterpillar. Mr. Fites was instrumental in collaborating with the public and private sectors to raise funds for the program. With the support of The Caterpillar Foundation, the Fites Family Charitable Trust, Kelly Foundation Inc. and Kelly Tractor, in conjunction with the District School Board of Collier County, the HEM training program, a state-of-the-art curriculum designed to prepare graduates to enter a field in high demand throughout the United States and Latin America, was launched. Through the HEM program, Immokalee students receive training in heavy equipment operation, production and repair, providing them valuable hands-on experience and direct preparation for the workplace. The content includes practical experiences in electronic engine operation, diesel engine complete rebuild, hydraulic system testing, heavy equipment fleet maintenance performance and transmission rebuild with specialized skills in electronics, such as use of manufacturers diagnostic tools. Since the programs inception, iTECH instructor Bob Moore has helped dedicated students spend thousands of hours training to be competitive on a global level and it is paying off for many, including Roberto Salazar, a 2010 Immokalee High School graduate. Mr. Salazar was one of the first students to enroll in the HEM program. He says that while he had thought about college, he never pictured himself going. I felt college wasnt for me, so when I heard about the heavy equipment mechanics program, I was excited, he says. We had never had anything like it before in Immokalee. With the help of TIF, which provided a supplemental scholarship to help with the necessary books, uniforms, tools and more, Mr. Salazar enrolled in the first HEM class. I had worked on equipment before and enjoyed it, but this was different, he says. We were taking engines apart and rebuilding them. Mr. Moore was really helpful. After his first year in the program, he had the opportunity to take his training one step further during a 10-week summer internship with Ring Power Corp. in Tampa, which provided real life preparation for the workplace. It was really invaluable because it gave me hands-on experience, he says. When I returned to school for my second year, I felt I had learned so much in a short time during my summer experience. In May 2012, Mr. Salazar was among 12 young men who graduated from the first HEM training program. At the time, 10 of the 12 graduates had already secured jobs, including Mr. Salazar. He had left an impression on executives at Ring Power, one of the largest Caterpillar dealers in the Southeastern United States, and was offered a position. Today, he is still with the company as a heavy equipment technician at the corporations Tampa division. Mr. Salazar is grateful to TIF and the HEM program for providing him with the opportunity to grow and advance in ways he never thought possible. He credits Elda Hernandez, program manager for TIFs Career Development Program, and Mr. Moore for helping him achieve his goals. Ms. Elda and Mr. Moore always pushed me and encouraged me, he says. They cared about how I was doing and how my grades were. They wanted me to do well. TIFs Career Development Program focuses on career empowerment and postsecondary readiness through experiences that emphasize leadership, skills development and community service. Students participate in career panels, job shadowing, internships, interview training and more. The program is one of several offered by TIF to help empower Immokalees youth and broaden their experiences and life skills so they can achieve economic independence. To learn more about TIF, including how to become a volunteer mentor for a student, call 430-9122 or visit immokaleefoundation.com.

Letter carriers call on postal customers to Stamp Out Hunger The 2015 Stamp Out Hunger food drive for Collier Harvest is going on through Saturday, May 9. Collier Harvest, the nonprofit agency that manages the National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger campaign locally, asks residents of Naples and Marco Island to place non-perishable food donations by their mailboxes anytime between now and May 9 to be picked up by their letter carriers.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 16-22, 2015 NEWS A25 in recent years, due to funding shortages. Federal and state programs such as the Victims of Crime Act, Rape Crisis Trust Fund and Floridas General Revenue Fund for Sexual Assault largely fund the organization. Three annual events the Chocolate Extravaganza, the SUN Walk and a production of The Vagina Monologues staged by volunteer actresses help fill in the gaps. Less than 5 percent of Project HELPs annual budget goes to staff salaries and office supplies. Many local agencies depend on the victim support that Project HELP provides, including local police departments, the Medical Examiners Office, the Department of Children and Families and The Shelter for Abused Women & Children and more. Its a very emotional job, says Eileen Wesley, director of victim services. Its not one you can take lightly or come in unprepared. We dont know whats going to come in the door. Its also very empowering to help a human being through trauma, she adds. Its very rewarding and healing. Earlier this month, the group staged its fourth annual production of The Vagina Monologues, Eve Enslers groundbreaking episodic play about female sexuality, at Sugden Community Theatre. Limited to only one show in previous years, this year Ms. English and her staff organized a second performance to accommodate community demand for the play. Both shows sold out. Aside from additional funding that would allow Project HELP to increase its response to local crime victims, the group needs funds for upgrading and supplying its office space. Nurse volunteers are also needed to assist in medical exams. Weve been here for 29 years, and crime doesnt go away, Ms. English says. We can only outreach so much because we can only help so much Its sad because there are people out there We meet people who say, Man, I wish you were there when this happened to me We dont have the ability to handle it all if we did (do more outreach). Victims of violent crime and sexual assault, and those who have lost a loved one due to suicide or sudden death, can call Project HELPs 24-hour hotline at 262-7227 to speak with trained counselors and receive resources.How you can help:Community members can donate office supplies or volunteer to perform a variety of helpful tasks at Project HELP. Here are some suggested donations and what they can buy: $10 Safety whistles: UNBOLD Loud, attention-getting sound that alerts of a threat. Conveniently hangs on a key chain. $25 Bus passes and gas cards: Provided to low-income clients for transportation to counseling, depositions, trials. $50 Comfort kits for sexual assault survivors: Blankets, socks and pillows for use during forensic exam. Shower and toiletry supplies, fresh clothes and shoes. Refreshments to combat fatigue during investigative interviews $75 Group counseling supplies: Sharing and support beyond one-on-one counseling in the form of music, art and expressive therapies to provide another level of healing. $100 Self-defense course: Focuses on emotional and verbal self-defense to give power and control back to survivors. Classes offered free to sexual assault survivors. $150 Training for a volunteer forensic exam nurse: Volunteer nurses are part of the Sexual Assault Response Team. Requires a one-week, 40-hour training course. For more information about how you can help Project HELP, call the administrative office at 649-1404 or visit projecthelpnaples.org.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA28 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 16-22, 2015 UF study finds vitamin D can affect pain and movement in obese individuals with osteoarthritis BY TRACY WRIGHT University of Florida Got milk? If you are overweight and have osteoarthritis, you may want to bone up on your dairy products that have vitamin D. According to a University of Florida study, higher levels of vitamin D may decrease pain and improve function in obese individuals with osteoarthritis. Findings published in The Clinical Journal of Pain indicate that obese individuals who suffer from osteoarthritis and have adequate vitamin D levels could walk, balance and rise from sitting to standing better than obese participants with insufficient vitamin D levels. The findings suggest an association between obesity and vitamin D status for tasks such as standing from a seated position. Adequate vitamin D may be significant to improving osteoarthritis pain because it affects bone quality and protects cell function to help reduce inflammation. Vitamin D maintains calcium and phosphate concentration levels to keep bones strong, said lead author Toni L. Glover, an assistant professor in the UF College of Nursing, part of UF Health. Increased pain due to osteoarthritis could limit physical activity, including outdoor activity, which would lead to both decreased vitamin D levels and increased obesity. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affecting millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the protective cartilage on the ends of bones wears down over time, causing pain, stiffness and loss of joint movement. The researchers analyzed blood samples for vitamin D levels from a racially diverse group of 256 middle-aged and older adults. Participants also provided a self-report of knee osteoarthritis pain and completed functional performance tasks such as balance, walking and rising from sitting to standing. This study was part of a larger project that studies racial and ethnic differences in pain in individuals with osteoarthritis. Among the 126 obese participants, 68 were vitamin D-deficient while only 29 of the 130 non-obese participants were deficient, suggesting obesity is significantly associated with clinically relevant vitamin D deficiency. Obesity is associated with vitamin D deficiency, knee osteoarthritis pain and poor functional performance. Vitamin D is stored in the liver and human fat cells, and previous research has shown that the larger fat amount in obese people can cause vitamin D to be stored instead of circulated in the body. The Institute of Medicine recommends that adults ages 18-70 get 600 international units of vitamin D per day and adults over 71 get at least 800 international units of vitamin D per day. For context, an 8-ounce glass of fortified milk contains about 100 international units of calcium. Foods rich in vitamin D include salmon, tuna, sardines, shrimp, mushrooms, egg yolks and foods fortified with vitamin D, such as milk and some cereals, yogurts and orange juice. The body also produces vitamin D through sun exposure, although it can be hard to get enough from the sun alone from the winter sun in some climates, and sunscreens block the vitamins production. Vitamin D is inexpensive, available over-the-counter and toxicity is fairly rare, Ms. Glover said. Older obese patients with chronic pain should discuss their vitamin D status with their primary care provider. If its low, take a supplement and get judicious sun exposure. HEALTHY LIVING Plan to properly dispose of your old prescriptions Drug Free Collier urges everyone to clean out their medicine cabinets and bedside tables and bring outdated or no longer needed prescription and overthe-counter medications for proper disposal to one of several local collection points during Operation Medicine Cabinet from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 25. Although the following collection points accept expired pharmaceuticals year-round, Operation Medicine Cabinet is designated as a day to raise awareness of the free disposal service and the importance of properly discarding old medications to help keep harmful drugs from falling into the wrong hands and to reduce pharmaceutical contaminants in the environment. Flushing pills down the toilet or throwing medication away with household garbage is strongly discouraged. Collection points are: Collier County Sheriffs Office, East Naples: 3319 Tamiami Trail E.; 774-4434 CCSO, North Naples: 776 Vanderbilt Beach Road; 597-1607 CCSO, Golden Gate: 4707 Golden Gate Parkway; 455-3121 CCSO, Immokalee: 112 S. First St.; 657-6168 Naples Recycling Center: 2640 Enterprise Ave.; 643-3099 North Collier Recycling Center, 9950 Goodlette-Frank Road; 252-8617 Marco Island Police Department, 51 Bald Eagle Drive; 389-5050 Naples Police Department: 355 Riverside Circle; 213-4890 The next meeting of the Drug Free Collier Community Coalition takes place from 8:30-10 a.m. Friday, April 24, at the Martin Luther King School Administration Building, 5775 Osceola Trail in Naples.

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 239.939.3456Mental Health Association offers seminarThe Mental Health Association of Southwest Florida presents Cultural Competence for Todays Practitioners, a seminar about promoting wellness and recovery through inclusion, from 7:30 a.m. to noon Tuesday, April 21, at the Hilton Naples.

Dental Implants Starting at $1,295 BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickYour child or your dog comes running and leads you to a surprise in your yard or a nearby park: a litter of tiny kittens. Your first instinct may be to scoop them up and take them home or to the shelter. Would you be surprised to learn that experts say in most cases its best to leave them where they are? Often, the kittens arent abandoned but stashed by their mother while she goes out to hunt for food. Heres how to determine their status and what to do if they really are on their own. Watch from a distance to see if the mother cat returns. Be patient. She could be gone for several hours. And she may be unwilling to approach if she sees you near the kittens. If its necessary and you can do so without disturbing them, provide shelter. If the mother doesnt return to care for the kittens, the next step is to determine how old they are. Kittens 8 weeks or older can be trapped, spayed or neutered, and returned to the area where you found them. Younger kittens can be identified by their appearance and size. At less than a week, their eyes are shut and their ears folded down. At 1 to 2 weeks, the eyes and ears start to open, and the kittens can crawl. At 3 weeks, eyes and ears are fully open and kittens are starting to walk. At 4 weeks and up, kittens are running and playing and can start eating solid food. Kittens up to 7 weeks of age are the best candidates for socialization and adoption. After that, its difficult to acclimate them to human touch and presence. Before you take kittens into your home for fostering, check them for fleas. An infestation of the nasty bloodsuckers can quickly kill a kitten. Ask your veterinarian or the kitten expert at your local shelter for the best way to safely rid the kittens of fleas. Keep kittens warm. They cant regulate their own body temperature, so dont let them get too hot or too cold. If the kittens are cold when you get them, warm them gradually by holding them in your hands and letting your body temperature do the work. You can also put them in a box lined with towels fresh from the dryer. For a constant source of appropriate warmth, hang a 60-watt light bulb above the box. Avoid heating pads, which can short out or become too hot. Wait to feed kittens until they are warm. Cold kittens wont be able to digest food. Plan on feeding them every four to six hours, round the clock. Make sure kittens stay hydrated by adding extra water to kitten formula (never give a kitten cows milk, which can cause diarrhea). Gently wipe the kittens bottoms with a warm, damp tissue or cotton ball 15 to 30 minutes after each meal to stimulate urine flow and bowel movements. Weigh young kittens daily to make sure they are putting on weight. Watch for eye discharge and sneezing, which can indicate infection. Sick kittens need immediate veterinary care to have a good chance of survival. Call your local shelter or veterinarian for further advice and help. They may be able to provide you with the equipment and support you need to foster the kittens until they can be adopted. Other good resources include Alley Cat Allies (alleycat.org) and Maddies Fund (maddiesfund.org). Fostering young kittens is a lot of work, but it can be highly rewarding.

(Adult & Pediatric) MEET OUR PHYSICIANSPenny J. Orr, OD, MD, MD, OD, OD SWFLEYE.COM CALL TODAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT! THE DIVA DIARIESForget Facebook moments; the real thing is better than par for the courseIn a land not so very far away, there actually exists a magical place where there are no electronic devices. No texts, no tweets, no selfies, no status updates, no You Tube videos, no Googling. Its a place where you cannot even make a cell phone call. No, Im not talking about that terrible 15-minute limbo on an airplane in between take-off and when the captain turns off the fasten seatbelt sign, letting you know that you can access WiFi, and announces that beverage service is about to commence. Im talking about Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Golf Tournament. Last week in this column, I fretted about what I would wear to The Masters since my husband Todd and I had won tickets to the exclusive tournament. Once we arrived at the crack of dawn on Thursday, however, my outfit was the least of my concerns. It turns out, there are no cell phones allowed. And by not allowed, I mean theres a sign in the parking lot telling you to leave your phone in the car. And the car is a good 30-minute walk to the gate. It was like cutting an umbilical cord. After a fine stay at the hospitable Red Roof Inn in Augusta, Todd and I snapped one last selfie (seen here, wherein I forgot to apply lipstick and Im not quite awake yet) in the parking lot of Augusta National before we walked back in time and experienced a world, that quite honestly, Id forgotten since the late 1990s when I got my first mobile phone. Augusta National Golf Club, near the Georgia/South Carolina line, is arguably the most beautiful course in the world. Think lush rolling green hills, pink azaleas in full bloom, dogwood trees and magnificent magnolias. Theres truly nothing like it, and your first instinct upon entering the gates is to whip out your phone and start snapping. Too bad for you. You have to relearn how to take mental pictures. And needless to say, I was rusty at it. Before we started our hike around the hilly course, we grabbed a couple of egg salad sandwiches from concessions (famous for their $1.50 price tag) and sat on a bench to enjoy them with some sweet tea. Did you check us in on Facebook? Todd asked jokingly. Shut up, I responded, twitching with withdrawal. But as I looked around at the other patrons (thats what they officially call guests at Augusta National not spectators, not fans, but patrons so polite), I noticed how strange it was to see everyone with their heads up, taking in the sights and sounds and the smell of spring in the south, chatting with one another, or just being still. No one had a phone in hand. Not a single soul was hunched over scrolling or texting. I havent seen that in years. Even in hallowed places such as theaters and churches, while folks might not be talking on them or texting, you certainly hear the vibration of silent rings and you see people inching them out, at least to check the time. At The Masters, you have to actually approach strangers who were smart enough to wear wristwatches and ask them for the time. It took a couple of hours, but once the symptoms of cell phone withdrawal subsided, I was able to soak it all in as we followed Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth and others around the course, parking our chairs at Amen Corner for a spell. We loved listening to drives slice through the air and down the fairways, balls thump satisfyingly onto greens and the roar of the crowd whenever a player made a good golf shot. My favorite moment, though, was right after Tiger Woods made a magnificent drive down the 12th fairway. It was toward the end of the day, and Todd and I were getting ready to leave. As Tiger quickly walked by the crowd with his head down, focused on the task at hand, he glanced up and saw me at the edge of the ropes jumping and smiling and clapping like a total dorky fan girl. We made eye contact for a millisecond in which I nearly died, and in which a huge grin spread across his face, and as God is my witness, WE HAD A MOMENT. If my iPhone had been in my purse, I would have been too busy fumbling for it so I could get a photo of my Tiger moment instead of actually experiencing it and experiencing it was way better than posting it on Facebook. Youll just have to trust me on that. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS email@example.com The writer snapped a selfie with her husband before leaving her cell phone in the car while they watched opening day of The Masters.

B8-9 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE LOCAL BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE INDUSTRIES BSECTIONWEEK OF APRIL 16-22, 2015 The number of food trucks delivering mobile meals continues to increase in Southwest Florida and Palm Beach County, sending a business-is-good message throughout the industry. Also known by their technical name mobile food dispensing vehicles (at least in the eyes of the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation which licenses and monitors them), the number of food trucks in Florida has increased from 1,680 in 2001 to 2,569 in 2014. The Tampa and Orlando areas have the most. In Southwest Florida, 112 food trucks were operating within the three-county region last year up seven from 2013. A decade ago, there were just 67. Palm Beach County issued 140 MFDV licenses in 2014, compared to 124 the prior year and the 84 reported 10 years ago. While Florida appears to be embracing the mobile movement, the industry itself is changing. Food trucks are more likely to circle the wagons at farmers markets and other regularly scheduled events lest they unwittingly violate municipal regulations or raise the dander of brick-andmortar restaurant owners should they park too close. Many of these moving mini-restaurants arent the wanderers they once were, sticking to venues where a captive audience is a better bet than guessing whos hungry where. Some of the most fortunate food truck vendors have found a partnering business or office park willing to give up prime real estate in their parking lots for a rental fee. The rise of the food truck has also spawned related services big-time promoters akin to Hollywood agents who stage invitation-only rallies and roundups and a flurry of how-to and industry websites, some dedicated solely to street justice and battling those laws that take a bite out of business. Many food truck owners supplement their business with more lucrative private catering. Lee Caglioti and Brian OFlaherty of the Ravenous Rhino adhere to their own mom-and-pop rule, avoiding downtown Punta Gorda out of respect to the locally owned restaurants there. Instead their truck generates most of its business at the Sand Trap, a Deep Creek-area bar BY NANCI THEORETFlorida Weekly Correspondent COURTESY PHOTOThe Ravenous Rhino food truck gets busy with yummy grub.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 16-22, 2015 Lonely investors find community support onlineInvesting is a neverending process of assessment, reassessment, and related portfolio decisions. For professional and homespun portfolio managers, the weighty task of portfolio management is always in the trenches, hard work. Given the complexity of the investment environment and the roller coaster emotional ride of investing, it is very good for portfolio managers to not think and act in isolation. It is very good to work within an investment community to lighten the load through collaboration and lift ones spirits in bad times and temper your euphoria during good times. A community is a given for the professional; not so for the home-styled investor who is often resource-challenged and time constrained. The solo path can be quite lonely, filled with unchallenged thinking and unexpressed emotions, and relying on limited investment resources. There is very possibly a better way for the individual investor. It is found in an online investment community, a 24/7 access to thousands of investors posting their thoughts and challenging the thoughts of others. In a nanosecond, investing as a solo sport can be transformed into a team sport, with the team moving toward profitable investment goals and cheering each other ahead. Who is best suited for an online community? Those who like to share ideas, are aware that they dont know it all or know it better, are open to new ideas, need the encouragement of others, etc. Personally, I have come to find a specific online investment forum to be an incredible investment resource. The forum is not a whimsical recommendation on my part as I have written a column on Value Forum in each of the preceding three years. My theme remains constant: there is no better online investment forum than Value Forum. There is no remuneration for me in making this recommendation. VF draws on the minds of many serious and professional stock and bond analysts who share very detailed analyses and their projected valuations; from such, many a dialogue ensues. For the experienced investor, you can just jump in and engage in the banter. The inexperienced investor can remain cloaked in silence, but still able to garner from the ideas displayed on the site by others, from all over the U.S. and abroad, from many different professional and selfstyled disciplines with greatly varying sizes of portfolios (from hundreds of millions to entry-level portfolios of $25,000). The forum has a serious tone to member postings. Because the members of the forum are investing in their ideas and the ideas of fellow members, they dont take kindly to misleading metrics or flawed analysis or puffery. Albeit all, even the sites super stars, make mistakes and all can have moments of self-delusion. The board embraces dialogue about a broad array of value situations and in that regard, the ideas are intended to have much greater upside than downside. They are, largely, not trying to time the market or rotate into and out of sectors; they are focused on the metrics of specific investments. As many are retired and need income-producing stocks, they often seek value plays characterized by a floor for the stock due to (an expected to be recurring) hefty yield. The group is not too trusting of managements accounting; it knows that a distribution made or a cash dividend paid cannot be restated, as can earnings. The group is much focused on master limited partnerships, whether pipelines, refineries, fertilizer companies, fracking related businesses (sand and water supply needed in fracking). The MLP distribution is part return of capital and part earnings a very favorable tax treatment is an unfavorable tax world. Some MLPs followed are the tried and true, but often the VF members are looking at recent IPOs that have distribution growth potential and are undervalued. For the newbie investor, the forum is of even greater value as posting is not required; you can just tag along in the shadows, reading the posts of some great minds and great investors until you come of investment age. If read repetitively, the postings of experienced investors can become investing templates in your mind. Value forum is not free and neither should a serious investor expect it to be so; the nominal charge seems to keep riffraff off the site (as that sort generally does not like to pay anything). One of the best ways is to sign up for VF is a trial account that costs $7 for seven days. Since entering a stock forum can sometimes be daunting and uncomfortable, I suggest that you go to the heading titled Acclaimed Contributions and pick out some of the posters with the highest star ratings as these star ratings are posted by members. (Caveat: some other great investors post very infrequently and yet their content is outstanding, so it is not all in the stars.)Another way to make an entrance to the site is to read the posts with the net most positive recommendations during the current and past month. If 150 or more members recommended the post, then chances are pretty good that there is great value to reading it. Another way to enter the site is through the discussion forum tab, which allows a search of your favorite stock or sector. If you enter the words, Invest Fest you can access presentations made at Value Forums most recent conference. The board seems to have matured beyond unseemly dialogue, a problem of the past. But be forewarned: the group is so deep in the valuation trenches that members dismiss other aspects of investing, including overall portfolio construction, and the reality that when an equity crash occurs, it takes down all stocks, even their seemingly invincible value plays. In a crisis, the value investors market of stocks transforms into an undifferentiated and ugly stock market. Jeannette Showalter, CFA is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems.

USDA offers:NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 16-22, 2015 BUSINESS B3 that doesnt serve food. The couple offers dinner service several days a week, and 75 percent of their business comes from people who live in the area or follow them on Facebook. Ms. Caglioti says they serve 40 to 50 dinners nightly in three hours. During high season theres a 45-minute wait for the Rhinos $12 slow-roasted prime rib. Like Caglioti and Brian OFlaherty, food truck entrepreneurs tend to be trained chefs who prefer the open road to the higher overhead of a stationary restaurant. A food truck gives them freedom to take business where theres demand except when the engine or the generator acts up or a tire gets flat, laments Woody Szaza, owner of Woodys Burgers which serves fresh-cut fries, 7-ounce premium brisket-and-chuck grilled burgers and other specialties from Port St. Lucie to Miami. Restaurants are great when theyre busy but theres a lot to deal with, says Mr. Szaza, whose 30 years in the business includes tenure at Ritz-Carlton restaurants and as the owner of a small chain. Food trucks can be a nightmare at times. You dont have the same problems of a restaurant but the truck itself can have mechanical issues. Mr. Szaza is a relative newcomer, rolling out his food truck 18 months ago, shortly after his relocation to the Sunshine State. Im enjoying it, he says. Its a great way to see Florida and get the word out. For Erika Nunez and Fernando Pina, their Nandos Taqueria in Englewood was a dream come true. The couple plunked their entire savings into the truck and took out a loan to get the business off the ground. It opened Dec. 1, 2013. Weve both been in the food business one way or another, says Ms. Nunez. We moved from Georgia where we cooked for older people who raved about our food. We thought a taco truck would be easier than a monster like a restaurant. Englewood, where Mr. Pina has family, had similar demographics and a hunger for quesadillas, burritos, tacos and enchiladas. The couple and their family serve meals six days a week from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. in the parking lot of Omni Marine on McCall Avenue. Ms. Nunez credits Omnis owner Ryan Blumberg as a mentor who often helps her with business advice. We left Georgia in 2008 during the bad economy, had a lot of faith, took a chance and here we are today, she says. Business has been awesome and the locals have been so good to us. We paid off the loan. Im proud to say the little taco truck is mine. Mr. OFlaherty and Ms. Cagliotis foray into the food truck business came in a round-about way and involved a hefty serving of romance. Theyd both worked together in the late 1980s at the old Mikes Landing at Page Field in Fort Myers, dated for 18 months then went their separate ways for more than two decades. Brian looked me up in 2009 out of the blue and it was almost as if hed just gone to the corner for milk, she says. We picked right up where we left off and married in 2011. Because we married later in life and we knew we wouldnt have 60 years together and decided to spend as much time together as possible. That led to a catering business and the Ravenous Rhino food truck. Weve always worked well together and knew we didnt want the overhead and staff of a brick-and-mortar restaurant, says Ms. Caglioti. With a food truck we have flexibility, can roll out to events and where the business is and have fun with it. The couple continually changes the menu, trying to focus on whatevers fresh and available. Were really the only food truck of this nature in Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda, she says. There are others but theyre not doing the gourmet thing. We always cook over the top, serve way too much. We want folks to get a good value. Our market isnt as metropolitan as Miami or Seattle. The Ravenous Rhino, with a licksmacking gray rhino on the side, hit the road in spring 2012 and has earned a loyal following for its bacon-and-cheesestuffed HogZilla burger, Granny Smith apple slaw and Thai shrimp tacos. Ms. Caglioti figures the same rules of the restaurant business apply to food trucks: lose money the first year, break even the second and show a profit the third. Our business is good and keeps growing. Were not rich by any means but were having fun. For Matthew and Amanda Somsy, Stuart-based caterers, their Curbside Gourmet provides instant gratification. We do a lot of catering and both of us have run kitchens, Mr. Somsy says. In a restaurant youre always in the back and never get any feedback. With a food truck, people tell you they like your food or you hear them saying, Wow that tastes great. We put our heart and soul into our food and thats nice to hear. Curbside Gourmet is also an exception to the disappearing lunch truck. It offers lunch three days a week at the old Improv Comedy building on Dixie Highway and Wednesdays at the Esperante Corporate Center, both in West Palm. Were the only food truck that has a lunch crowd, Mr. Somsy says. Thats how we built a following. We have 6,000 social media followers. Lunchtime meals range from braised short ribs and pork bellies to grass-fed burgers and crab cake sliders. Mr. Somsy says lunchtime can be hit or miss. We can do anywhere from 30 to 60 meals in the span of three hours. Ravenous Rhino tried lunch service but it didnt pan out, says Ms. Caglioti. Charlotte County is so geographically spread out we werent getting enough people in the time they have to eat, she says. Everything we do is cooked to order so it can take 15 minutes. Were just not well-suited for lunch. Business for Paul Schmidgalls Fire and Rice is so good, the chef plans to spend the summer on the road selling franchises throughout the U.S. and Canada. The 20-year-veteran chef was working for a Naples homebuilder when the real estate market failed. Employees were told to get a parttime job, he says. I started doing this in 2011 and business has grown exponentially year over year, so much Im almost tapped out at what I can do. Im going to exhibit at franchise shows. With paella albeit in many forms as Fire and Rices sole specialty, Mr. Schmidgall says hes close to selling his initial franchises, which will be outside the Southwest Florida market. Fire and Rice also stick to farmers markets, weekly making the circuit from Marco Island to Lakes Park in Fort Myers and the occasional pop-up event, like a recent rally at Momentum Brewery in Bonita Springs. The truck typically sells out of 300 to 350 servings by 11 a.m. during the Third Street Market every Saturday morning in Naples. A caterer as well, Mr. Schmidgall says hes been working non-stop since October, taking off only Thanksgiving Day and Christmas. The Ravenous Rhino tries to participate in food truck roundups and rallies. Ms. Caglioti became the Charlotte County contact for Food Truck Festivals of America after participating in the promoters Food Truck & Craft Beer Festival in March during spring training at Jet Blue Park in Fort Myers. This company is rapidly expanding and were trying to gauge the interest and demand for making a food truck festival happen in Charlotte County, she says. In Naples, Taste of Collier will have a food truck row during the annual event later this month. The Seminole Immokalee Casino used to host regular rallies but hasnt had any for several years. The Somsys are so passionate about their food truck and the business theyre members of one of the industry advocate groups. Food trucks have been around since the chuck wagon, he says. We are not hindering the business of brick-and-mortar restaurants. Food trucks are not a fad; theyre part of society and restaurants need to accept that. This is a good way for foodies and chefs to get their food out without big overhead. I get phone calls all the time from people interested in starting a food truck, Mr. Somsy says. If you love cooking, its awesome, especially the instant gratification. TRUCKINFrom page 31 The Fire and Rice food truck The Curbside gourmet truck Brian OFlaherty and Lee Caglioti

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 16-22, 2015 I trace my history back to the 1940s and an orthopedic surgeon in Kalamazoo, Michigan, who invented better medical products than the ones available to him. Early items include a turning frame to rotate immobile patients and an oscillating saw to cut casts. Today Im a global leader in medical technology, with products that include spinal implants, waste management systems, endoscopy cameras, hospital beds, ambulance cots, replacement hips and knees, and robotic surgery systems. I hold more than 5,000 patents and employ more than 25,000 people worldwide. My revenue has been growing for 34 consecutive years. Who am I? Know the answer?

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. A Dividend PrimerIf youre thinking that dividends are chiefly for retirees, think again. Theyre powerful portfolio builders for investors of all ages. Consider this: Between January 1926 and December 2014, fully 43 percent of the S&P 500s total return was due not to the increase in the prices of the stocks in the index, but to the dividends those companies paid out. Here are some tips to help you be a successful dividend investor: Dont go just for the highest dividend yields you can find. Theyre sometimes tied to struggling companies. (Yields rise when stock prices fall, and vice versa.) Instead, seek healthy and growing companies. Check out a candidates payout ratio, which reflects the percentage of its earnings paid out in dividends. If a company is paying out 95 percent or 150 percent of its income, the dividend might not be sustainable and might get reduced. High payout ratios can be just a temporary glitch or a sign of a significant problem. Favor lower ratios, such as below 60 percent. Seek strong dividend growth. A company paying a 3 percent yield today with a record of hiking its dividends by about 10 percent annually can be more attractive than a company paying 4 percent with a 2 percent growth rate. A long track record is a plus, too, instilling confidence. ExxonMobil has been paying dividends since 1908, and McDonalds has been paying dividends since 1976. Procter & Gamble and General Mills, respectively, have been paying them since 1890 and 1899! (The Motley Fool owns shares of ExxonMobil and has recommended Procter & Gamble and McDonalds.) The bigger the yield, the better, but assess a companys big picture. Seek highquality businesses with sustainable competitive advantages, strong profit margins and growth rates, healthy balance sheets, significant dividends, manageable payout ratios and solid dividend growth rates.Dont ignore the power of dividends. For a list of recommended dividend-paying stocks, try our Motley Fool Income Investor newsletter for free at fool.com/shop/newsletters. Bought High, Not LowThe first dumb thing I did was to buy Akamai Technologies when it was a new IPO for $179 a share. The second dumbest thing was not buying more shares when it was trading for less than a dollar per share. M.B.M, Eugene, OregonThe Fool Responds: Wow thats quite a range of prices! Its risky to buy any stock when it debuts via an initial public offering (IPO). Typically, its mainly insiders who get to buy at the low initial prices, leaving the rest of us to grab shares as the stock quickly zooms up if its a much-anticipated and hyped debut. A year or two post-IPO, many stocks trade well below their IPO levels, reinforcing the idea that its usually best to wait a few years for an IPO to cool down. Akamai, a cloud computing specialist, debuted in 1999, a bit before the Internet bubble burst, and then it crashed hard, along with many other companies. Those who believed in the company and hung on now have a company worth more than $12 billion, with a stock price recently above $70 per share. Furnish Your PortfolioEthan Allen Interiors (NYSE: ETH), the home-furnishing and interior design specialist, relies on a healthy U.S. economy and low lending rates to push its business higher and these days, both of those factors are present. In the fourth quarter, U.S. GDP advanced 2.6 percent, and interest rates are still near record lows. This can nudge home prices higher and help homeowners redesign or add value to their new or existing homes. Ethan Allen did take a bit of a hit recently, though, after announcing quarterly results that lagged expectations. However, higher expenses tied to freshening up its stores interiors, launching a new and updated website, introducing new product offerings, and investing in new technology, both on the manufacturing and logistics side of the business, hampered results. These costs are unlikely to last beyond 12 to 18 months, and theyre critical to maintaining Ethan Allens long-term growth strategy, which includes expanding abroad, such as in China. Meanwhile, the stock recently sported a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 18, and a forwardlooking one near 14, both well below its five-year average of 20.Long-term believers in Ethan Allen can collect a dividend that recently yielded 1.7 percent. Better still, its dividend, though slashed during the market ugliness of 2009, has been hiked significantly in recent years. Ethan Allen may not grow quickly, but it can reward patient investors. I trace my roots back to a single contr act in 1980. Today Im the worlds largest medical air transportation company. Based in Englewood, Colorado, I sport a fleet of more than 450 helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft and serve 48 states, via more than 300 bases of operations from Alaska to Florida. I also design and make aeromedical and aerospace technology, and my tourism division operates helicopter tours and charter flights, too. My stock has grown by more than an annual average of 25 percent over the past 15 years. I consider myself a defender of tomorrow. Who am I? (Answer: Air Methods) Bonds for Kids?QShould I invest in savings bonds or CDs for my kids? M.T., Salt Creek, ColoradoAIt depends. Less-volatile investments such as savings bonds, money market accounts and CDs can seem safer, and thus best. But with many of them yielding only 1 or 2 percent, money in them will likely lose purchasing power over time just due to inflation. In the long run, stocks have generally outperformed those safer investments. We cant know how the stock market will fare in the next few months or years, but the longer you leave your money in healthy and growing companies, the more likely youll be to do well. With stocks, its best to invest only money you wont need for at least five years (or 10, to be more conservative). If your child is 16, it can be risky to put college money in stocks. But if shes 6, its a good choice. Perhaps start with an inexpensive index fund, such as one based on the S&P 500. You might also invest in the stocks of a few companies that your children know and like, and then follow them together. Learn more at treasurydirect.gov, investopedia.com/university/indexes and fool.com. ***QWhere online can I look up the rate of home value appreciation in a region? S.D., Pumpkin Center, North CarolinaAOne good resource is mortgage giant Freddie Mac. At freddiemac.com/finance/fmhpi, it provides its Freddie Mac House Price Index (FMHPI), measuring typical price inflation for houses nationally and within each state. Or look up data on 20 metropolitan regions via the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices at us.spindices.com.

Cindy Carroll, vice president of Carroll & Carroll real estate appraisers and consultants, provided insight into the local markets behavior and explained how its historic benchmarks help real estate agents better gauge market conditions. Quoting Mark Twain, Ms. Carroll said, History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme. She expressed confidence that, over the long term, real estate prices will continue to rise in neighborhoods that have close proximity to the beach, and added a revival in the condominium market might result from a stabilizing singlefamily home market. Real estate is derivative of whats going on in the local economy, John Tucillo, Ph.D., chief economist for Florida Realtors, told the crowd. He introduced new key indicators affecting Floridas real estate industry, including natural and in-migration population growth; employment growth, which is outpacing the nation; and stock market performance, which is helping a flood of retirees fund second homes in Florida. But Mr. Tuccillo also pointed out a few developments on the horizon that could change how Floridas economy and the housing market behave in the next five to 10 years, including oil prices, the Panama Canal expansion, investment in exports and transportation and relations with Cuba. Nationally acclaimed economist Elliot Eisenberg, Ph.D., former senior economist with the National Association of Home Builders, also addressed the crowd. Admitting that most economists say the state of a 1274 Waggle Way, The Estates at Bay ColonyOn the market for the first time, this one-level home in the Estates at Bay Colony in Naples has five bedrooms plus an office and a home theater, five full baths and two half-baths.

Details throughout the 6,000-square-foot-plus home include marble floors, stone countertops, extensive crown moldings and custom woodwork. The private Bay Colony beach club is included.

Small business confidence is up and labor growth will get better in the next three to five years, Mr. Eisenberg said. The Fed will raise rates assuming the economy can take it, he added, but we are not going into a recession, so enjoy yourself. With regard to the housing market, he noted that new home prices are higher than the median price for existing homes. Historically, it used to be a 20 percent gap in price, but over the last four years the spread has drifted further apart. Through humor and graphs, Mr. Eisenberg assured attendees that Florida is getting its mojo back and reminded everyone that people want to live here. The NABOR Economic Summit was sponsored by Quail Creek Country Club. A private cocktail reception sponsored by Wells Fargo Home Mortgage and Aqua at Pelican Isle immediately followed the session.

Even collectors cant tell why some folk art pieces even exist. C18 FESTIVALIf Ralph Bellini, one of the four characters in The Last Romance, were giving advice, hed surely say, Live life big, like an opera! He certainly does. The romantic comedy by Joe DiPietro (Tony winners Memphis and Nice Work If You Can Get It) ends the regular season for The Naples Players, with performances April 22-May 16 at the Sugden Community Theatre. The Last Romance is more than a romantic comedy, however; its a poignant look at dreams, longing, what might have been and what could have been seasoned with humor, forgiveness, opportunity and a taste of Italian opera. Its about love of life, and the courage to not be lonely the willingness to risk something to get to that place, says Michael Scanlan, director of the TNP production. When we first meet them, Ralph is isolated, Carol is closed off, and Rose is in a fantasy world, Mr. Scanlan says about the cast of characters. As the story unfolds, they face their fears, take some chances and sl owly let go of the past, opening doors to life, love and possibility. Vic Caroli, voiceover artist and veteran of the local stage, performs as Ralph. Last seen at the Sugden as Dr. Watson in Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure, Mr. Caroli echoes the directors take on the role loneliness has in the play. Nobody wants to be alone, he says. You think you have all the time in the world, and then times up. He sees his character as a biggerthan-life 80-year-old who keeps up with whats current (including rapIts never too late for another romantic comedySEE ROMANCE, C27 Hank Williams Jr. is the Saturday, April 25, headliner MUSIC LIFE COUNTRY FOR VENUES FIRST CONCERT O O O N N N N C C C C C E E E E E R R R R R R T T T T T T T T BIG-NAME ACTS COME TO SWFL FOR VENUES FIRST CONCER T T T T F I I I R R R R R R R S S S S S S S T T T T T T T T C C C C C C C O O O O O O O N N N N N N C C C C E E E E R R T T T BI SEE COUNTRY, C4 ITS COMMON FOR MAJOR MUSICAL acts touring through Florida to play Tampa and roll right past Southwest Florida on their way to the West Palm Beach or Miami. If local fans want to catch the acts, they drive and book hotel rooms. But a festival-style music venue at a new 1,000-acre outdoor recreation park in Charlotte County brings entertainment sparkling with star power to Southwest Florida the weekend of April 24-26. Florida Tracks & Trails hosts the Country Life Music Festival, featuring Hank Williams Jr., Reba McEntire, Billy Currington, Big & Rich, 38 Special and Charlie Daniels.

Even typing this, I blush. Its the voyeurism of it, the watching two people (sometimes three; sometimes more, I suppose) that makes me squeamish. I like to believe that certain acts should be kept private. Of course, I try not to judge what people do on their own time. Its when they consume pornography in public that things get dicey. Unfortunately, Ive been running into a lot of this lately. I blame my printing situation. For years I havent owned a printer. I travel too much, for one thing, and anyway printers always seem to be running out of ink or jamming or going offline some trouble I dont have time to fix. Instead of investing in this technological dead weight, Ive learned to acquaint myself with the public library system wherever I go. I adore libraries, not only for their shelves of books, but because most offer computer workstations where for 10 cents a page I can print just about whatever I like. Of course, before I access any library computer, I inevitably have to sign a disclaimer, a litany of warnings detailing inappropriate action that I promise not to engage in. Im always in too much of a hurry to read these restrictions, but I imagine that watching pornography on library computers is high on the list of forbidden activities. Which is why, I assume, the men I see on library computer workstations seem to be such music buffs. Theyll watch the same racy music video again and again, in slow motion, zoomed in to the best parts. Ariana Grande seems to be a favorite, especially the video where she shoots laser beams out of her brassiere. Standing in line at the library help desk one day, I watched a man play this video through twice. At first I assumed he really liked the song, then I noticed his rapt posture, his jiggling leg, the way he gaped at the singer. When I realized he wasnt watching for the music, I made a little harrumphing noise. These people, I thought. Earlier this week, I found myself back at the library, parked at my usual computer workstation. I needed to print out a donation receipt for my 2015 taxes, a confirmation for a trip Id recently booked and a return form for two bras Id foolishly bought online. In order to print the return label, I needed to log in to the site where Id purchased the underwear an Italian brand known for its steamy lingerie. It never occurred to me that this might be inappropriate. After all, it was legitimate personal business. Right? Im not sure the older gentleman at the terminal next to mine would agree. He glanced in my direction as I filled out my return request for the bras and searched for the right form to print. I saw him raise his eyebrows as I scrolled through the lingerie site image after sexy image and then I heard him give an indignant little harrumph. Was that for me? I turned to him, and I swear I could read his thoughts. These people. Artis Henderson is the author of Unremarried Widow published by Simon and Schuster. artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

COURTESY PHOTOThe triple-platinum-selling duo Big & Rich will perform on Saturday, April 25, at the Country Life Music Festival at Florida Tracks & Trails east of Punta Gorda. its seen as a secondary market, and its hard to get tier-one acts into Fort Myers, said Brad Maloney, vice president of operations for BLU Events & Entertainment and founder/producer of the Country Life Music Festivals. Nothing like this has been in Southwest Florida the stage, the talent, the production theres never been a stage this big in Southwest Florida. The three-day music festival will feature 18 acts that include country legends, todays top names and tomorrows stars. I like to mix it up, Mr. Maloney said. Hank and Charlie with young upand-comers (get) a chance to play the big stage. Im trying to do a showcase in this line up, and 38 Special mixes the day up because theyre not exactly country. Big & Rich (has) a new album that doesnt sound like the past. We have Grayson Rogers as the local openers local draw to give them some exposure. Ticket levels include general lawn admission, reserved seating and VIP passes. Unlike many festivals, singleday and all-weekend tickets are available. Onsite camping is also available. Platinum VIP tickets and premier-level campsites have already sold out. Festival attendees who also purchase admission into the Florida Tracks & Trails park will be the first to try out its motocross tracks, ATV trails and paintball courses. Its a new style of entertainment hitting this area, said Rachael Ketterman, marketing and entertainment director for the park, who notes that the community feedback has been positive. Of course, festivals happen all over the state, but this is the first country festival for Southwest Florida. Since the park is not yet officially open, the festival and accompanying park activities will take place under the auspices of a special events permit issued by the county, Ms. Ketterman said, noting that park construction is nearing completion. She said the park is mainly waiting for approval of its operating permit, a time-consuming process due to the fact that the multifaceted outdoor recreation park is unlike any other operation in the state or possibly even the country. Our tracks are done, our paintball is done and our trails are done, Ms. Ketterman said. Not all our concessions will be fully up (nor is) the rec lake completed with all the amenities. The only way you can get access to park admission is through the Country Life website so that we dont have the masses assuming its our opening weekend. Some changes to plans have happened during the parks construction process, to include exchanging the planned amphitheater for the flexibility of a 60-acre music festival lawn. In the future, we may have a fixed music venue, but for now it makes the most sense to have a festival-style grounds because thats whats so popular right now, Ms. Ketterman said. Were not married to a permanent venue that we can only hold concerts at, and with this layout, we can do anything. I think the customer the audience wants a different experience. People want to get closer to the talent, and they want to be part of the spotlight. Mr. Maloney said he has signed a multi-year contract to make Country Life an annual event at Florida Tracks & Trails. Its a big venue out there, and I expect 8,000 to 10,000 people a day in the first year, he said. I think its going to be the premier outdoor venue in Southwest Florida and the premier festival destination in the country, not just for fans but for the artists. The weathers great, and theres stuff these cowboys want to do, with the ATVs and the paintball and the zip lines.Not your grandpas country musicAmong the cowboys coming to perform is the rock-and rap-influenced Big & Rich. Comprised of Big Kenny Alphin and John Rich, the duo is known for its No. 1 country ballad Lost in This Moment, 10 other top-40 country songs, including the dance hit Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy and a string of gold and platinum albums. They are also known for the ESPN College Game Day opening sequence in which they perform an adaptation of their song Comin to Your City. Formerly signed with Warner Brothers Nashville, the duo has recently released their new album Gravity under their own label of Big & Rich Records. They are known for live performances that go beyond the moniker of high-energy.COUNTRYFrom page 1

ROUND TRIP!* COURTESY PHOTOS The Big & Rich show is like dropping a napalm bomb on a town, Mr. Rich said. Its a rollercoaster of insane energy. When you light a guitar with Bacardi 151 and smash it and throw it to the audience nobody else does that its a testosterone-boosted rock n roll show. Big & Rich do something different from the usual image associated with country music. So did Johnny Cash, Mr. Rich said. Some of the pioneers of country cut records at Sun with Elvis. He went to Nashville and they said, That aint country, but now hes a pillar of country music. We walk offstage with our pulse racing at 160 because we left everything behind on the stage, Mr. Rich continued. You better take your vitamins before coming to the show. Hydrate before you get here because were going to kick your country butt. While Mr. Alphin and Mr. Rich are enjoying the height of fame, some artists playing Country Life are just getting started. Dexter Roberts, a finalist on the 13th season of American Idol, recently signed with First Launch Records, a division of BLU Entertainment & Events, which released his single Dream About Me in March. Im really excited about coming down there because its my first big show beyond American Idol, Mr. Roberts said. When I see the crowd, I love it. I just want to get out there in front of everybody. I want to write songs to inspire people who are having a bad day so they can put words to their lives. Casey Weston will be returning to Southwest Florida to perform at Country Life. Originally from Naples, Ms. Weston moved to Nashville to pursue her dreams to become a singer-songwriter after finishing as a finalist during the first season of The Voice. Still an independent artist, she released her third album, Young Heart, on Valentines Day. I was blown away when I was approached about the festival, Ms. Weston said. Playing with this caliber of talent Reba, Hank, Big & Rich Im excited to be part of that. Living in Nashville, theres five degrees of separation I met Chris Young once (another Country Life performer) but Ive never played a show with any of these guys. This is my first time at this big a platform my first foot in the door with this. Im grateful they asked me, and I hope I make everyone in Southwest Florida proud. Ms. Weston has opened for Nashville artists who have played shows in Southwest Florida. Some want to meet the opener and see what youre doing in your career and give you advice, she said. It very much depends on the headliner. Grayson Rogers of Fort Myers will be the first act on the stage, opening the festival on Friday with a rockinfluenced sound. Usually artists stand behind the mike, but with us, everybodys moving, Mr. Rogers said. Its chaos and energetic, a country music show you usually wouldnt get. Our music is upbeat and gets you dancing and having a good time. Even our slow songs have drive behind them theyre power ballads and definitely a different sound than you hear on country radio. Though the group has yet to be signed by a record label, but Mr. Rogers says that audiences make all the difference. Fans dont know how important they are because record labels look at your numbers on social media, music downloads and merchandise purchases, he said. It literally takes you two seconds to like us on Facebook. Depending upon the ticket level chosen, the festival offers fans the opportunity to see the artists at a price that is less than $10 per act. These are the lowest prices anywhere, Mr. Maloney said. Where else can you see six artist eight hours of music a day, get a good seat and you dont have to fight the crowd?

That was brought home to me opening night of The Diary of Anne Frank, at Laboratory Theater of Florida, as I found myself watching with an audience filled with students from Dunbar Middle School. The sixth, seventh and eighth graders were the same age as Anne Frank in the play 13-15 years old. They laughed in recognition when Anne struggled with her parents and other adults. They reacted with empathy to her budding romance with Peter, a boy three years her senior. No matter what the generation or historic events happening around them, some things are just universal: a teens quest for independence from parents, her search to discover her place in the world, the wonders of a first romance. Yes, Anne is hiding from the Nazis in a secret room with her parents, older sister and four other people, but shes still a teenager with all the accompanying feelings, self-doubts and hopes. Thats part of what makes the play so poignant. Despite her fears and her nightmares, she still has her youthful enthusiasm and optimism. And yet, sadly, we know how it ends. Director Annette Trossbach chose Kaycie Lee, 13 years old herself, to play Anne. Constantly chatty and full of hormones, shes a whirlwind of activity. Her best scenes come with Peter (Marcos Martins), the boy of the family who are in hiding with the Franks. Mr. Martins plays Peter with pitch-perfect awkwardness, and the teens bumbling attempts at friendship, and eventually romance, are both sweet and funny. Matthew DeNoncour and Ellice McCoy play Annes parents, Otto and Edith. Anne is partial to her father and, like many teen girls, at odds with her mother. The parents have a great scene that is incidental to the play, and may not even be noticed by some: While Anne and Peter are talking in his room, the Franks play cards together, displaying that easy intimacy and friendship that comes from a good marriage. In marked contrast are Peters parents, the van Daans: Mr. van Daan (Jack Weld) and his wife Petronella (Aricka Shuck). The two quarrel and fuss. Hes overbearing, shes flirty and arch. He blames her for their being trapped in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam. He wanted to leave the Netherlands earlier, when they could, and perhaps go to America, but she was so attached to her material things she refused to leave. But hes just as selfish; he steals food meant to be shared with the others. He yells at his wife and browbeats his son. His parents quarreling their very existence embarrasses Peter, yet he is faithful to them. Annes older sister Margot (Rowan Stafford) is a friend, but she and Anne are so unalike. Margots quiet, studious, almost like a ghost. The families are helped by Miep (Faith Deterding) and Mr. Kraler (Mike Dinko) who, at risk to their own lives, bring them food. Though these two arent on stage as often as the others, they are powerful in their roles. The Franks and van Daans have to decide whether to allow another person to hide with them: Mr. Dussel, a dentist. Dave Yudowitz plays him as a curmudgeon, full of scowls and complaints. Their two years of hiding are filled with fear and hunger, yet there are light moments in this play, too. Ms. Trossbach has made some interesting choices with this production. The set and the costumes (some of which are actual pieces from the 1940s) are all in black and white and shades of gray. Its like looking at old photographs come to life or an old film. Its striking. However, in trying to eliminate all color from the stage, she also attempted to delete skin tones as well, which was not as successful. Unfortunately, they ran out of airbrush make-up, and on opening night, as a poor substitute, used white pancake makeup, which made some of the actors look as if they were mimes or the emcee in Cabaret. I wondered at one point if the director was deliberately trying to make the actors look like ghouls, or ghosts. However, the problem should be rectified after the opening weekend, when theyre able to obtain more of the airbrush make-up. The play would also be more dramatic if Ms. Trossbach used a stronger hand in orchestrating the pacing, as some events occurred with disorienting quickness. I also wish she would urge her actors to speak with more clarity. Some over-enunciate in kind of faux British accents or rush through their dialogue in a manic pace. I had much difficulty understanding Annes pre-recorded diary entries, and thats a shame. The play, however, sparks a desire to go back to the original source: Anne Franks actual diary, something I havent read since my own teens. The opening night production was followed with a talkback featuring Cesare Frustaci, who survived the Holocaust as a child, and Robert Hilliard, who helped free the concentration camps and played a vital part in making sure the survivors were helped. Their amazing true-life stories were gripping, and the students in the audience listened attentively. Mr. Frustaci spoke of surviving on his own as a 7-year-old, and seeing Jews executed on the streets right in front of him for not wearing their gold star of David. It was an astounding coda to The Diary of Anne Frank. Anne Frank wrote in her diary, I want to go on living even after my death. With the publication of her diary and productions like this, she is. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com The Diary of Anne Frank>> When: Through May 2 >> Where: The Laboratory Theater of Florida, 1634 Woodford Ave., Fort Myers >> Cost: $22 adults, $10 for children >> Info: 218-0481 or laboratorytheater orida. com

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 16-22, 2015 C15 LATEST FILMSEx MachinaIs it worth $10? YesModern cinema associates science fiction with outer space adventure (Interstellar), alien invasion (Edge of Tomorrow) and bleak visions of the future (Chappie). And on a bad day, were reminded of Eddie Murphys career-killing Adventures of Pluto Nash (2002). Only rarely do we get cerebral sci-fi, which engages us intellectually as it ponders the future in ways we rarely consider. Importantly, it also does so without explosions or aliens popping out of someones stomach. In 2013, Her examined the possibility of falling in love with artificial intelligence, but that intelligence was relegated to Scarlett Johanssons sultry voice as an operating system. Ex Machina, which is set in the near future, extends that premise by providing a voice, face and partial body to the android. The results are fascinating. Here is a quiet film with grand ideas, superbly acted and executed by a first-time director with clear aplomb and conviction. This is a movie for smart people to see together and discuss over dinner afterward. Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson) is an ambitious, nerdy and nave computer programmer for a search engine technology company. Hes thrilled when he wins the opportunity to join the owner of the company, Nathan (Oscar Isaac), for a week at Nathans research facility/home. Red flags emerge immediately: The compound is so remote that Caleb travels via helicopter through snowy mountains before arriving at Nathans domicile in the middle of the jungle; Caleb is quickly asked to sign a nondisclosure agreement; Caleb is never given a clear explanation of what hes supposed to do; and Caleb is only allowed in certain rooms, meaning something ominous lurks behind closed doors. This sounds like the setup of a horror movie, but writer/director Alex Garland isnt interested in frills (except for ample female nudity, which is egregious but titillating). The visual effects are subtle and part of the story, not flashy or attention grabbing. At its core, this is a quiet meditation on humanity and artificial intelligence, and what happens when the lines between the two are blurred. Speaking of which: Caleb is ostensibly there because Nathan has created a robot named Ava (Alicia Vikander) that he believes is capable of emotions, and Nathan needs Caleb to test Ava. Is Ava capable of consciousness? Is she just responding to cues, or legitimately interacting on a human level? Caleb tells the already egotistic Nathan that Nathan would be like a God if hes able to create conscious life. We expect Nathan to have some ulterior motives, but theyre not what you might think. In fact, each characters evolution is unpredictable, and just when you think you know where the story is heading, theres another surprise. The house has a staid, blandly futuristic appeal, lacking color and panache for the sake of glass walls and muted lighting. An apt reflection of Nathans isolated existence, its further accentuated by Mr. Isaacs performance, which renders Nathan a bit off but just short of totally crazy. It wouldve been easy to go the full mad scientist route, but staying a step shy of that is a tricky balance that Mr. Isaac pulls off well. Mr. Gleeson is solid as Caleb, but the real draw in the cast is Ms. Vikander, who is equal parts beautiful, smart, robotic and manipulative. The big question is, who is she manipulating? The script is too creative to make anything easy, which makes the final act all the more riveting. Sadly, because this isnt the warp-speed, alien-fighting, spaceship-exploding science fiction moviegoers are used to, the box office prospects for Ex Machina are slim. For shame, because the themes are deep, layered and clever, and a second viewing is in order to fully appreciate the films scope. >> The title Ex Machina is taken from the ancient Greek phrase deus ex machina, which occurred when a god (deus) was lowered to the stage using machinery (machina), usually a crane, in the conclusion of a play so he could quickly and neatly resolve complex plot details. Writer/director Alex Garland reinterprets the term here in a creative and smart way. dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com *This coupon may not be combined with any other promotion, coupon or discount.

Born. Forge. 304 pages. Hardcover, $25.99. I dont know if a new subgenre is blooming in crime fiction or not. Alex Kavas recent Breaking Creed launched a series about a dog trainer who does contract work for law enforcement agencies. Now James O. Born offers a book that could very well also launch a series. Scent of Murder gives a detailed portrait of a K-9 unit operating within the Palm Beach Sheriffs Office. Like Mr. Borns earlier novels, this one capitalizes on his extensive experience as a law enforcement professional. Tim Hallett is rebuilding his career after losing his position in the prestigious detective bureau two years back by mishandling the case of a child molester. Retrained as part of a man/dog team, Tim has been rebalancing his life. Rocky, the Belgian Malinois with whom he is partnered, is more than a coworker; he has become an important part of Tims life. Along with his young son, the divorced father has created a new family. Mr. Borns sensitive handling of the relationship between man and dog is superb. This is a bond of true respect, mutual dependence and responsibility. The author makes Rocky as real as any special-skill partner; his is a personality readers will come to know quite well. Certainly this is a book for dog lovers, but those who arent canine fans can thoroughly enjoy it as well. I know I did. There is a murderer out there kidnapping and abusing teenage girls before killing them. One victim managed to survive the perpetrators worst intentions and has been rescued by the K-9 team. Others are in harms way. The author builds suspense by alternating the point of view. Most often, we are given Tims perspective, sometimes that of another one of the human K-9 team members. We also enter the mind of the perpetrator, Junior, whose impulses are out of control and whose planning is meticulous. And (are you ready for this?) sometimes we are given Rockys point of view. At first, I found this device disturbing, a bit too much Scooby-Doo. However, after a while it grew on me and gained credibility.

Visit our new showroom website at: agostinos.com interiorsbyagostinos.com Complimentary Interior Designteams and a supervisory dog trainer. The police service dogs and their human partners have a range of skills that are put to good use in the pursuit of the criminal. Mr. Born draws the action scenes with authority and economy and provides a detailed and engaging education in how such operations are managed. The case that got Tim in trouble a couple of years ago comes into play in the present situation and influences the direction of the investigation. Eventually, the clues lead in a surprising direction. While the investigation plot provides the major center of interest, Tims relationship with his ex-wife and the possibility of a new love interest add stimulating complications and rounding of the protagonists character. Some of the subordinate characters are similarly elaborated, and all of the supporting cast members are carefully differentiated. Another interesting aspect of Scent of Murder is the portrayal of interaction, competition and strife within the working of the law enforcement community. Ambition, pettiness, vanity and grandstanding all play a part in the world of law enforcement politics. These factors affect Tims progress in rebuilding his reputation among his professional associates. Fortunately, Mr. Born also includes Sgt. Greene, an officer of solid professionalism with a true sense of what duty means. The author also handles the various Palm Beach County communities that the investigation touches with confidence and accuracy. Like everyone else, he calls the huge Mall at Wellington Green Wellington Mall. And though not many tales of Palm Beach County are likely to include the misery of remote Belle Glade, this author makes good use of the impoverished community as one of his local settings. Suspenseful action, riveting details about police work and police service dogs, well-drawn characters and confidently handled settings all make Scent of Murder a likely winner. Mr. Born has set the wheels in motion for a series of K-9 centered mysteries. Time will tell whether the success of this engaging book will be sufficient for the publisher to invest in such a venture. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war litera ture and a creative writing text.

KOVEL: ANTIQUESSometimes, folk arts purpose hard to figure out BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELOdd, unidentified or unusual collectibles make every antiques show and shop more fun. How do you use a dog treadmill? Did the dealer say it was an elephant catcher? Is that strange crock really an 1850 chicken feeder? And what is the use for an oversized cardboard top hat covered in wallpaper? Don Olson, a Rochester, N.Y., folk-art dealer, just sold an early 19th-century top hat. The 8-inchhigh hat seemed a bit large to wear. It was well-made with yellow-andgreen wallpaper that pictured leaves. The pattern was carefully matched. The inside was lined with newspaper, dated 1814, that reported on an auction of cannons and a nominee for governor. The hat was in excellent condition. It didnt seem to have been worn much. Old wallpaper-covered hatboxes are valued antiques and many are in museum collections. But this is the first hat weve seen. Its 200 years old and in great condition. Wellmade unique folk art sells quickly. Look carefully at some of the strange things you might find in your ancestors attic. There could be a valuable treasure or an important piece of forgotten history. Q: I have a thimble that reads Massasoit Coffee. There is a small star after the word coffee. Can you tell me something about collecting thimbles and which ones are considered of more value? A: Massasoit Coffee was produced by Chas. E. Brown & Co. of Springfield, Mass., in the early 1900s. Thimbles have been made for more than 1,000 years and are a popular collectible today. Thimbles by known makers sell for the most money. Some collectors specialize in a particular type of thimble, like advertising, commemorati ve, political, souvenir, floral, scenic, cities or states, or by material. Thimbles have been made in aluminum, brass, gold, pewter, plastic, porcelain, silver, wood and other materials. Some have a makers mark on the band or inside the cap. Thimbles made in the late 19th century or later may be marked with the size. Advertising thimbles were made beginning in the 1800s. Early advertising thimbles were made of brass, silver or aluminum. Later, they were made of plastic. There is an international club for thimble collectors, Thimble Collectors International, ThimbleCollectors.com. Q: I have an old French countrystyle chair with the label Barnard & Simonds Co., Grand Rapids, Mich. Its fruitwood with a caned back and padded seat.

A: Barnard & Simonds Co. was founded in Rochester, N.Y. in 1898. The company made reproductions of Americanand English country-style upholstered furniture and novelties. In 1959 it moved to Grand Rapids, Mich., where it merged with Michigan Furniture Shops and Stratford Shops. The company was bought by Baker Furniture in 1967 and the Barnard & Simonds name was discontinued by 1971. Your chair probably was made in the 1960s and is worth about $50, so have fun refinishing it and make it gorgeous! Q: Ive seen articles about the increasing value of old radios. I have a large number of old radio vacuum tubes. Is there a market for them? A: People who repair old radios need old radio tubes. You should contact someone in your area who repairs old radios to see if they are interested in buying the tubes or search online for restorers of vintage radios. Tip: If buying a vintage fountain pen, examine it carefully. Look for extra holes in the cap that indicate a missing clip and signs of glue near the clip or trim. And run your fingernail around the cap lip to check for cracks or chips. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

This 8-inch-high top hat is lined with an 1814 newspaper that mentions the nominee for governor of Massachusetts. Perhaps it was worn at a political party. But although the hat was well cared for during the past 200 years, its use remains a mystery.

Chejai Onumbu came out slamming. Declaring the importance of aspiration, preparation and determination in education, the slam poet and local college sophomore nailed the mission of the new FutureMakers Coalition during a mid-March rally announcing the regional initiative. At that moment, with her personal message of education leading to greatness, Ms. Onumbu became a FutureMaker and an inspiration. (To view her poem and video, visit www. FutureMakersCoalition.com.) I like my writing to encourage kids in middle school and high school, she says. I tell them not to get discouraged, that they can do anything and excel as long as they dont give up. Thats exactly the objective of the FutureMakers Coalition, a sweeping regional initiative with the goal of increasing the number of Southwest Florida residents with college degrees and post-secondary education certificates from 27 to 40 percent by 2025.A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | FUTURE MAKERS ISSUE 2015INSIDE: The Bubble Effect Lumina Foundation Support Success Story our GIVING MATTERS I am a FutureMakerI have always taken my kids with me to vote. Even when early and absentee voting became an option I waited until Election Day, stood in line and engaged my children in the process. They always agreed to go; they wanted the I Voted sticker. I felt we all stood a little taller and held our heads a higher when we left the voting precinct wearing that badge of honor. Of course it wasnt the sticker but the idea that individually we were part of something that would create change in our community or our nation. Several weeks ago I left a meeting wearing another sticker, and I felt the same sense of responsibility to the greater good. This time the call to action on my lapel read I am a FutureMaker and all day people asked how I had earned this new role. I proudly told them that I had made a commitment to join a regional coalition dedicated to increasing the percent of working-age adults in Southwest Florida with college degrees or industry recognized certifications. Currently in the five-county region only 27 percent of our residents have post-secondary degrees. We cant be sure about the number of certifications; there has not been a reliable process for counting them. The coalition was formed by educators, workforce developers, business leaders, economic development professionals, government officials, residents and students who understand a healthy thriving region depends on more people securing and stabilizing their careers with advanced credentials. Much like voting, this is not a task one individual or organization can take on alone. We need each other and we must work together. We all can be FutureMakers by joining the coalition and working toward the goal of 40 percent by 2025. In this report you will learn how post-secondary education changed Yajaida Vasquezs life and the tremendous effort by Future Makers to impact others. When you sign up, I promise to send a sticker!

| A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | 2015 2 | our The Coalition is seeking FutureMakers from Lee, Charlotte, Collier, Hendry and Glades counties dedicated to reshaping the face of the region, improving their communities and cities and ensuring economic sustainability and viability. The FutureMakers Coalition is an open dialogue and an open invitation to anyone in the community, says Sarah Owen, president and CEO of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation which is serving as the initiatives backbone organization. Each of us has a part to play in getting there. We want people to tell us we can count them in. We need your ideas, input and inspiration. We know everyone has the ability to help people make that next step into post-secondary education. For each individual who gets better and stronger, the region gets better and stronger. The United States continues to falter in the percent of residents obtaining postsecondary education. It ranked 14th globally for the percent of 25to 34-year-olds with higher education in the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Developments 2014 Education at a Glance. The group, which is dedicated to policies that improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world, also noted the countrys college graduation rate was 19th out of the 28 countries studied. The number of first-generation college students is just 29 percent one of the lowest levels among OECD countries. The FutureMakers Coalition knows these statistics can be reversed with its unified initiative that will make postsecondary education attainable for any high school graduate or adult who knows education is the answer to a better life for themselves, their families and Southwest Florida. During the next decade and beyond, the initiative is relying on business, civic and government leaders and individual residents to declare themselves as FutureMakers dedicated to improving the five-county workforce by providing support from college or technical school graduation to career for first-generation and non-traditional students and underemployed adults. Everyone has something to offer, even if they dont know it yet, says Owen. Potential FutureMakers include businesses willing to make it possible for employees to get technical training; educational support programs wanting to make a bigger impact; and individual mentors and tutors who can offer their knowledge, expertise and successes to traditional and nontraditional students. We have a lot of talent in our five counties and organizations, businesses and residents who have the passion and resources to make a profound impact, Owen says. There are many ways individuals and organizations can get involved, but it all starts with raising your hand and saying, I want to be part just like the foundation and many other FutureMakers partners have done, she says. Its a simple as signing the virtual I Am a FutureMaker wall at www.FutureMakersCoalition. Supported by recent inclusion among Lumina Foundations national Community Partners for Attainment cohorts, the FutureMakers Coalition builds upon an existing regional collaboration of education, business, city and county leaders and citizens committed to educational success. The building blocks are already in place and success will be achieved through sure-footed baby steps taken together. The 40 percent benchmark is the only given in a process that will continually evolve as more partners come to the table. To move the pendulum just one percentage point takes thousands of completed degrees and certifications. Its a long journey with a lot of work, says John Gamba, an education technology entrepreneur who emceed the FutureMakers Coalition kick-off rally attended by more than 80 leaders and students from the five-county region. FutureMakers is the launch pad for our future and it starts with awareness and communication, he says. Theres a wealth of activity in this region, but all too often we work in silos and on oneoff projects. When we rally around a bigger picture and our collective impact, the attainment of more certifications and post-secondary degrees will take care of itself. FutureMakers is an investment in our human infrastructure. Education is our No. 1 investment for the HELP FROM PAGE 1Lee Co. Schools Superintendent Nancy Graham, Jacqueline Ehlers Lee Co.

Together the Coalition will break down barriers to attainment with an involved and impassioned community ready to step in with encouragement and a network of coaches, mentors and others who pledge to reshape the future. Ms. Onumbu, whos working on her associates degree in art, realizes she was among the fortunate, supported by parents and professors who saw her potential. My parents did tell me to go to college, that anything was possible if I tried. My father always told me Id never be able to see whats out there if I didnt try. She laughs when she recalls a professor singling her out to present her slam poetry publicly. I was flattered he thought of me, she says. It was the first time I thought he really does like what I do. The regional approach and partnership created by FutureMakers will support Southwest Floridas population who aspires to a college education or post-secondary certification. I like the idea of the community coming together to solve this challenge, says Susan McManus, president of the Education Foundation Champions for Learning in Collier County. Its going to change the whole scenery of this region when the coalition is successful. in g t h P e ti o al s st u s e pi m p e ri e ta l y e n o 4 Persistence, Progress Post-secondary CompletionTeachingSustainability Internships CertificationsGovernmentEconomy Getting to the GoalLow-income studentsHigh school seniorsCareer ladderingFUTUREMAKERS COALITION IS MADE POSSIBLE BY LUMINA FOUNDATION, AL AND NANCY BURNETT CHARITABLE FOUNDATI O CollaborationTechnical colleges Wo

It s o means rethinking the traditional college u dent and college experience. There are kids that just cant see theme lves in college because of the financial c ture, she says. We need to engage more entors and coaches and show young e ople others who have the same life expee nce and were a success. We need to begin l king to students well before their senior e ar about college and realizing college is o longer geared to the four-year student whose family pays for it. Theres also a middle-class gap of kids whose parents make a little too much to qualify for aid. For Dr. Darryl Clare whos been working with underprivileged children in the Dunbar community, FutureMakers fits his goal of breaking generational poverty and connecting to organizations with identical missions. The Coalition rally made me realize there are well-organized and established groups interested in the same thing, he says. Lumina Makes Our Future BrighterThe success of FutureMakers twoyear-old inaugural initiative to increase the number of high school seniors completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, got the attention of experts in the world of higher education. Because of FutureMakers regional emphasis, Lumina Foundation invited Southwest Florida into an group of 75 communities working to increase post-secondary attainment. U.S. Undersecretary of Education Ted Mitchell also met with major regional stakeholders and FutureMakers during a recent visit to Southwest Florida and reiterated the importance of continued support for students in college and training programs. The undersecretary was impressed we are among Lumina Foundations cohorts, says Dennie Hamilton, CEO of Lee County Electric Cooperative, president of the Horizon Foundation and former Horizon Council chair. This is a big deal. Lumina is dedicated to increasing the number of residents with high-quality degrees, certificates and other credentials through a community network of business, civic and educational efforts. Lumina communities are eligible for financial assistance and have access to the brainpower of leading national and international experts. We worked with the Florida College Access Network and the Helios Foundation to determine cities in Florida that were ready to work with us, said Haley Glover, Luminas strategy director leading this work. In Southwest Florida, we saw community partnerships for attainment already in place and attainment work already happening. We know Southwest Florida can go broader and deeper and quicken the pace thats already been established. Lumina will help the FutureMakers Coalition develop and implement creative and collaborate methods to increase post-secondary enrollment, retention and completion, emphasizing of region-wide involvement from businesses, education, nonprofit groups and dedicated citizens. On the national level, Lumina is working with colleges and other institutes of higher education to improve persistence and degree completion. Life experience is also relevant, says Ms. Glover. Were always looking for institutions that work with the 21st century student who is self-paced and often a nontraditional student, she says. We want to see more institutions accepting skills and knowledge for credit. Credit acceptance would entice more adults nontraditional students account for 75 percent of college enrollment to return and complete or earn their degree at a lower cost. We can never downplay the cost of college; thats something Lumina grapples with all the time, says Ms. Glover. We need to make it more affordable for non-traditional students and those currently not well served. Equally important is ensuring that all students who go to college complete a credential. Were very excited to see what the Southwest Florida area will do. O CMITCHELL P, 4 y s.

Fort Myers Mayor Randy Henderson sees the same need for nontraditional students adults who may have dropped out of high school or left college to support their families. Hes been a long-time advocate of establishing a centralized educational center, a place where downtown employees can walk to night school after work to complete or earn degrees. It would also offer GED opportunities, bachelors and masters degrees, and certifications in specific disciplines. Hes counting on the 10 or so colleges within the citys perimeter to join in the initiative and offer degrees relevant to the businesses in the city. We have a captive audience and the critical mass is in the center of the city, Mayor Henderson says. Walkability and transportation are an issue. My goal is to create an education hub serving the residents and the 10,000 to 12,000 employees who commute downtown. Its impossible to overdo this effort of educating more residents. It enriches a city and community and provides a higher level of quality of life experience. Increasing the quality of the regional workforce improves the chances of cities and counties attracting new businesses and better-paying jobs. We spend an awful lot of money, time and effort to improve economic development and one of the biggest measures a large company looks at is who we have to fill their jobs, says Lee County Commissioner Larry Kiker. If you look at the statistics, folks with only a high school degree have double the unemployment rate than everyone else. Having a postsecondary degree doubles your chances of getting a job. The FutureMakers Coalition also is eager to hear from businesses weighing in on the qualifications, degrees and training they seek from potential employees and the opportunity to develop internships and paid sponsorships. Scott Fischer, a local business owner and philanthropist with Harley-Davidson stores in Naples and Fort Myers, is also a FutureMaker. His work with Blessings in a Backpack and Junior Achievement prepare children to learn; the latter also teaches business and real-life skills to kindergarten through high school students. As an entrepreneur, the education of children in Southwest Florida is critical, he says. These are my future employees. I have 170 employees in Florida and invest in developing them as leaders because thats what drives my business. For me, the lack of leadership is the biggest challenge in business today. Mr. Fischer is in. So are Mayor Henderson, Commissioner Kiker and many others who know they hold the keys to the future. Preparation. Aspiration. Access. Persistence. Completion.

O C HELP FROM PAGE 3Yajaida Vasquez knows she was almost a grim statistic, a life once defined by homelessness and poverty. But there were people in Ms. Vasquezs life that helped her rewrite the future: A high school principal who saw beyond the student absent most of her senior year and a nurse practitioner who recognized a potential nurse in her young assistant. Now an advanced registered nurse practitioner who serves the underserved through her newly opened Suncoast Medical Centers in Lehigh, the Cape Coral woman is a shining example of a life changed by FutureMakers: the grandparents who raised her, encouraging and supportive professors and bosses, and even complete strangers who gave her an opportunity. There may have been a light-hearted threat, too. I was born in the U.S. to a singlemother who didnt have the resources to take care of me, Ms. Vasquez says. I lived with my grandparents in the Dominican Republic and went to most of elementary there. They wanted me to learn English and my mother was supposed to be stable so they sent me back. She returned to Miami and her mother, shuffling from one home to another, staying with friends for a few days, living in a car and struggling. It was a vicious cycle, Ms. Vasquez says. My mother just couldnt make it. By the last year of school Id missed so many days I was told I wouldnt be promoted. Then the principal said I could graduate if I passed my final exams. She did and relocated to Southwest Florida to escape the crowds and find opportunity. Because of her own life experience, Ms. Vasquez volunteered with a homeless organization and was eventually hired as a medical assistant to the nurse practitioner Sue Bingham. Sue taught me wound care, triage, how to take blood pressure, and I just fell in love with the medical aspect of it. She pushed me to go to school. Seeing the stuff my mother went through also motivated me. I didnt want to do that to my kids. I wanted to make something of myself. A scholarship from the homeless coalition gave Ms. Vasquez the initial push. Her grandparents and husband provided encouragement and babysat her son, now 20, while she focused on her nursing education at Edison College. She credits the late professor William Polk at Edison College for steering her toward the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. She became president and part of Edisons All USA and Florida Academic teams, traveling to Dallas for a conference and seeing a world I didnt know existed. Mr. Polk was a lifetime friend and he became my patient, she says. He saw my kids grow up. Ms. Vasquez was pregnant with her second child when she started nursing school at the University of South Florida, taking bachelors and masters degree programs simultaneously and working on certification as a nurse practitioner. Local scholarships helped defray the costs. My daughter went from reading Dr. Seuss to Greys Anatomy, she jokes. She learned to read from my anatomy book and at 6 years old would read study questions. Ms. Vasquez graduated in 2008 among the top five percent of her class and was recognized for academic excellence in the schools nursing program. One of my teachers looked at my portfolio and said shed never seen anything like this at the masters level, says Ms. Vasquez. Then she gave me a look Ill never forget and says, If you dont go on and get your Ph.D. Im going to kick your butt. Ms. Vasquez toyed with the idea of continuing school but had this crazy idea I wanted to open my clinic. She realized that dream last October when she opened the Lehigh clinic with beds donated by one of her mentors, Ms. Bingham. She already has several hundred patients and limits daily appointments so she can spend time with each one. Ms. Vasquez attributes her success to others who nurtured and supported her and hopes to one day pay it forward with her own scholarship for nursing students. I had encouragement every step of the way and it was always in the back of my mind that people were giving me a chance. Her story is what the FutureMakers Coalition is all about, and we know there are many more lives that will be rewritten through this regional initiative. I didnt think I would be able to accomplish anything, Ms. Vasquez says. The support and scholarships I received made me realize there were people out there who cared enough to help a stranger. It wasnt just the financial help. It gave me hope because there was someone I didnt know who believed in me and I wasnt going to let them down. I was supposed to fall through the cracks.

This deal proved decisive in one of their matches. Shepherd (North) and Gould (South) bid and made a doubled grand slam after West opened one heart and East responded one notrump. Goulds pass of one notrump might seem peculiar, but he knew the bidding would not die at that point because his opponents (Bobby Goldman and Mark Blumenthal of the Dallas Aces) were playing the notrump response as a forcing bid. When Goldman rebid two hearts and the next two players passed, Gould began to make up for lost time by cuebidding hearts. This pleased Shepherd greatly, since he had an exceptionally good hand considering his previous silence, and he indicated this by responding four hearts a cuebid of his own. Gould was delighted by this development and jumped to six clubs. Shepherd, who assumed his partner had a two-suited hand rather a onesuiter, then corrected six clubs to six diamonds, expecting to locate either a diamond or spade fit. But when South persisted with seven clubs, West, under the impression that his opponents had had some kind of accident, doubled and led the heart ace. Gould ruffed, drew trumps, cashed the ace of diamonds and claimed 13 tricks, without need of a finesse, for a score of 2,330 points. And thats how championships are won!

BOB KELLY / COURTESY PHOTOCarol (Carole Fenstermacher) comforts Ralph (Vic Caroli) in a scene from The Last Romance. music) and loves life. As a young man, Ralph auditioned for the Metropolitan Opera. Carole Fenstermacher, who plays Ralphs love interest, Carol, has worked with TNP as an assistant director and actor (most recently in Les Liaisons Dangereuses). She thinks many women will relate to Carols story. My challenge is to show a believable transition from an uptight and proper snob to a woman whose eyes have been opened to possibility someone who can be willing to take a chance. For 79 years shes been taking care of others at the expense of her own desires, because thats what you do, she says. Then along comes this handsome, opera-singing guy from the other side of the tracks who knocks her, and her world, for a loop. A huge fan of the playwright Mr. DiPietro, Ms. Fenstermacher is delighted to be working with Mr. Caroli and Mr. Scanlan, as well as with Janina Birtolo, who plays Ralphs sister, Rose. Her character is deathly afraid of change, Ms. Birtolo says, Yet during the play, Rose comes to realize that changing is the way to stay alive. And that realization is sparked by Ralphs operatic flight of fancy. Opera isnt only a device to move the plot of this non-musical musical (as Ms. Fenstermacher calls it); its practically another character. The aria-singing Young Man, Ralphs alter ego and younger self, is played by Michael Fratz in his TNP debut. A classically trained vocalist, Mr. Fratz is thrilled to be a part of the production and enjoys the intimacy of the small group, a sentiment echoed by all. Theres so much in there, Mr. Caroli says about The Last Romance. Its a wonderful play. Its like an onion, Ms. Fenstermacher quips, noting they actors are digging deep to get at the core of each of their characters. From all appearances, though, the digging is a labor of love.

Can you fill me in? Valerie D., via emailA: The soon-to-be new moms Cooking Channel show, Real Girls Kitchen, starts its second season at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 25. She told me she cant wait for viewers to join in the fun of her series new season. For those unfamiliar with the show, heres how Haylie describes it: It really just is about a real girl in the kitchen its me, learning how to cook, sharing recipes that I love and cooking for my family and my friends. Every loose, and every episode is different. We get out of the kitchen a lot. A fun way to share your love of food with someone is to get out there in the field, so to speak, and going to farms and farmers markets. We describe our style of food as healthy decadence. Its a balance of healthy food and indulgent things as well. What can we expect for season two? I had a surprise birthday for my mom, Haylie reveals. I love to mess with my mom. And she hates to be on the show, but shes so funny, I force her. Everybody loves Mama Duff. We also do a great Italian episode. My fiance is Italian, and hes always saying Texas girls cant make Italian food. So I set out to prove him wrong. Q: When will Ray Donovan be back for a new season?

In addition to all kinds of sample dishes from local restaurants, theres a jam-packed schedule of competitions, demonstrations and live entertainment. The annual food fest was conceived 32 years ago as a gesture of appreciation from restaurants to the locals, thanking them for sticking with the businesses through the hullabaloo of season and patronizing their establishments through the summer. Organizers have helped Taste of Collier evolve into an event that reflects the desires of the community and highlights the best facets of the Naples dining scene. Everyone looks forward to it, says event spokesman Nicholas Jankowski. Its grown up and adapted to what people have wanted. One of this years most anticipated events is a showdown between local top chefs celebrities Charles Mereday and Brian Roland, who will compete to create the best dish from local ingredients. A panel of their professional peers will judge their dishes. Other Taste highlights include cooking demonstrations with local chefs, icecarving demonstrations, a wine garden and Food Truck Row. Admission and parking are $5 each; food tickets will be sold in packs of 10 for $10.

We got that and more at Incas Kitchen in the Pavilion shopping center (a sister location to the original Incas on Collier Boulevard). Peruvian cuisine is somewhat obscure, but in Naples this particular establishment looms large over the dining landscape. I ordered the corvina, a sweet, firmly textured white fish, and I was not disappointed. Served atop a mound of mashed potatoes and quinoa, the fish was dressed in a sauce called pepian de choclo and flambed in Pisco and soy sauce with sliced onions and cherry tomatoes on the side. It was a large dish for lunch, but I made good work of it and eagerly anticipate my next visit. One More Thing: The restaurant offers a ceviche bar, exactly like a sushi bar, for those raw fish devotees who would rather belly up and chow down on cured seafood. No need for table service when its cold, raw and ready to go down the hatch. Lindsey Nesmith email@example.com Got Download?The iPad AppIts FREE!

Dine with us between 5 and 6 p.m. and enjoy a three course PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Benja Thai, 6438 Naples Blvd., Naples; 591-1122 From the creators of Thai Udon Cafe comes a second little charmer, this one tucked between CenturyLink and Chick-Fil-A near the Hollywood 20 movie theaters. Like its older sibling, Benja offers nicely executed Japanese and Thai dishes but also has a spacious sushi bar, a holdover from its days as Sumo Sushi Sake. From the sushi menu, a standout was the blue crab roll made with authentic flaky crab (rather than surimi), spicy mayo, tempura flake, cucumber and tobiko. The yellow dragon roll crunchy tempura shrimp, asparagus and avocado topped with raw salmon was also first-rate. Skip the hamachikama (grilled yellowtail cheek), which had an overly strong taste, and try the curry-laced crab Rangoon instead. The chicken volcano could have used a more vibrant sauce, but the pumpkin curry with shrimp was zesty and full of calabaza and shellfish. Service was attentive throughout the meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2014 FUSE Global Cuisine, 2500 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 456-4585 Fried duck mac and cheese, hog wings (braised pork fore shanks fried and tossed with chili garlic sauce, sesame seeds and green onions), golden beet salad with bucheron cheese and micro greens are but a few of the ways to start off a meal at this intriguing spot owned and operated by chef Greg Scarlatos, formerly of Angelinas) and his partner Monica Czechowska. Entree options offer similarly imaginative but not over-the-top combinations, such as Colorado lamb chops with tart cherry glaze and Stilton potato hash garnished with crisp Brussels sprouts or cobia and wild mushroom with huckleberry gastrique. Guava bread pudding with fresh strawberries made a fine end to the meal. Service was gracious, the ambience soothing. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2013 HobNob Kitchen & Bar, 720 Fifth Ave., Naples; 580-0070 Well-known restaurateur Michael Hernandez (Aqua, Bistro 821, Bistro 41 and Zoes, among others) and Executive Chef Tony Biagetti (formerly of Handsome Harrys) have created a spot that appeals to all of the senses and offers a casual setting yet takes no shortcuts with food, drink or service. From the list of creative cocktails, I loved the Watermelon Fresca (organic cucumber vodka, watermelon juice, cucumber and mint). The by-the-glass wine list has some great choices. An octopus and white bean appetizer was a superb blend of flavors and textures. Grilled artichoke hearts were tender and delicate, served with a lemon aioli. While the Snapper in Crazy Water sounded more exotic than it turned out to be (the sauce made of coconut water, tomatoes and basil), it was nonetheless tasty. The rotisserie chicken was perfectly cooked, served with mushrooms, fingerling potatoes and onions. For dessert, try the Bonaffee pudding, a toffee pudding with bananas. Full bar. Food: Service : Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2014 The Other Side Bistro, 24630 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 992-7433 The breadth of experience and wisdom chef Brian McCarley has accumulated over several years and several restaurants comes together artfully in a tantalizing mlange of American dishes reinterpreted through classical French principles. Humble diner fare such as meatloaf, for instance, is transformed by a cabernet sauvignon demi-glace made from scratch. Its not all amped-up comfort food, though. Surprises pop up throughout the menu, such as artichoke hearts stuffed with goat cheese and quinoa and a rarely seen side dish of rich pommes Anna. Mr. McCarley knows how to transform a meat-and-potatoes dish into something special, like feathery gnocchi tucked into slow-cooked short rib meat and rich mushroom sauce. Seared snapper managed to be straightforward and sophisticated at the same time; the huge, moist fillet had a gorgeous bronze crust and was complemented by tomato-fennel compote and saffron-white-wine sauce. Save room for homemade desserts. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2014 Pizza Fusion, The Gateway of Naples Shopping Center, 2146 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 262-8111 Pizza Fusions food tastes good and the burgeoning franchise does good at the same time. This eco-friendly chain offers a menu thats 75 percent organic, with vegan and gluten-free options available and easily identified on the menu. While pizza gets a starring role here, there are other worthy contenders, however, including the zucchini al forno (zucchini stuffed with walnuts, breadcrumbs and bell pepper) and salads such as the pear and gorgonzola with a vibrant balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Pizzas come in two sizes personal and large. We liked the Greek, a mix of kalamata olives, roma tomatoes, organic tomato sauce, feta, parsley, mozzarella and provolone on a crisp multigrain crust. Dont skip dessert: The fresh-baked chocolatechip cookies are divine. Beer and wine served.

By 1989, it had outgrown its cozy original location and moved into the bigger building it now occupies on Bonita Beach Road. At what point in its 30-year history it outgrew its strictly traditional pizzaand-parmigiana concept I do not know. But it was a wise decision to introduce more ambitious and contemporary touches while still honoring the rustic culinary heritage of southern Italy. That extra effort gives Enzos a creative and competitive edge over the myriad other mom-and-pop Italian restaurants offering the usual pizzas and pastas. Pan-seared honey-glazed scallops over butternut squash risotto, anyone? How about a Florida lobster tail poached in tomato nage? At the highest end, theres even Dover sole baked in a sauce of white wine and capers. Were in heady territory here, and not just in terms of exquisite ingredients. The sheer volume of menu items 22 pastas, 23 seafood dishes, 21 meat entrees is enough to short-circuit your brain. Going in, you may wonder if father-andson chefs Angelo and Vincenzo Puleio can possibly deliver this repertoire consistently well every night. Going out, you will feel confident enough to come back and not be disappointed. Enzos innovative spirit extends to the bar, where youll find Italian-inspired drinks such as the giardiniera martini ($11), a wild twist on the dirty martini made with thyme-infused vodka and pickled-vegetable brine garnished with an olive, pearl onion and pepperoncini. In theory it sounds like a garden in a glass, but the reality was that it tasted mostly of chili. The wine list appears reasonably priced and varied. I enjoyed a glass of Dogajolo ($11), an intense super Tuscan, which was made of primarily Sangiovese grapes. A basket of pillowy house-made focaccia soon arrived, with olive oil infused with sundried tomatoes. It didnt take long for our first course to arrive, but as the meal progressed and the dining room filled up service began to suffer. Our server was obviously overextended, and we were left hanging for far too long after wed finished our appetizers. Fortunately, those starters earned some forbearance. We could have eaten two plates of the arancini Toscana ($11), three pankocoated rice balls studded with peas. The contrast of the crisp, brown crust and the creamy, cheesy rice within satisfied some primordial need that goes deeper than mere hunger. They hardly needed embellishment, but the warm, highly seasoned marinara served on the side was delicious. Im not a fan of the purple root vegetable, but the beet ricotta appetizer ($12) at Enzos may have weakened my aversion. Thin slices of poached beets were topped with a handful of peppery arugula and a generous dollop of soprafina ricotta, a super-creamy, divinely fluffy grade of the typically grainy cheese. The finishing touch: a drizzle of honeybeet vinaigrette. The sweet dressing, bitter greens and milky cheese somehow together softened the sharp taste of the beets. We had plenty of time to survey the dining room while waiting for the next course. The walls give off a warm yellow glow, and still-life paintings of food like eggplants and heads of garlic hang here and there. Tables are placed close together, most likely to maximize capacity, so theres not much in the way of privacy. After enviously watching plates pass by, it was finally our turn. From the pasta menu, I decided on the veal cannelloni ($23), which was much more complex than it sounds. Roasted veal and b utternut squash were mixed with Pecorino Romano and spinach as a filling for the long pasta tubes, which were draped in a velvety butternut squash-tomato ragu. As flavorful as the pasta filling was, the sauce really made an impression, too a sumptuous marriage of n utty squash and sweet fruit of the vine. Temperature was an issue with our other entre, the snapper Provencal ($26). The thick, juicy fillet itself was perfectly cooked and hot out of the oven, but the lemony risotto underneath was room temperature, as if it had been plated and then sat waiting for the fish. Zucchini itself doesnt have much flavor, but the thin slices tiled across the snapper like scales made for an attractive presentation. And the citrus-caper-Chablis sauce that accompanied the fish added more than enough pizzazz to the flavor of the dish. Despite the lag in service, we chanced further delays by ordering desserts of zeppole di zucca ($7) and guava-mango mousse cake ($8). The only dessert made in house, according to the server, the zeppole were fried dough balls made with roasted pumpkins, ricotta and raisins. These were much heavier than versions Ive had in other Italian restaurants, and they were fried to a very dark brown crust that left a bitter aftertaste. The mousse cake was bright with the flavors of tart guava and sweet mango, but the crust tasted stale. Despite a less-than-perfect experience, Enzos deserves praise overall for not only honoring tradition but for attempting to expand on it. drew STERWALDcuisine@floridaweekly.com Enzos>> Hours: 3-10 p.m. daily >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Appetizers, $5-$13; entrees $15-$38 >> Beverages: Full bar >> Specialties of the house: Southern Italian cuisine >> Volume: Moderate to high >> Parking: Free lot >> Website: enzosofbonita.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: 4351 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 992-5555 Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor DREW STERWALD / FLORIDA WEEKLYPoached beets are served with super-fine ricotta, arugula and honey-beet vinaigrette.
