www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 7-13, 2015 Bring Your Highest Expectations LIVINGSTON ROADPINE RIDGE ROAD EXIT 107WHIPPORWILL LANE N COMMENTARY In the cradle of rock n rollMississippi-born McKinley Morganfield once laid down a single line that should have been worthy of an honorary degree in advanced musicology: The blues had a baby and they named it rock n roll. Without the blues the traditional secular music of poor black Southerners all those long-haired white folks who used guitars, drums, electricity, radio, television and high-powered marketing never could have piloted their ambitions into the stratosphere, overdosing on girls, drugs and money from the 1960s onward. They changed the world, or at least they helped redefine its direction and that started on the southwest coast of Florida only 60 years ago this week, on May 9, 1955. Mr. Morganfield had already gone to Chicago and changed his name to Muddy Waters the day his blues baby rolled into Fort Myers, a town with about 12,000 residents in a county of 55,000, in a state of 3.7 million, in a nation of 166 million. The country remained almost as segregated as it had been 90 years and one month earlier, on April 9, 1865, when the Civil War ended. But that day in 1955, things changed: Elvis Presley had invaded Fort Myers. I wore a very cute, two-piece pink outfit trimmed in white linen, recalls Phoebe Blankenship Miller, at the time a 15-year-old sophomore at Fort Myers High School. She was dropped off with friends and family at the citys new Exhibition Hall on the river, for a 7 p.m. performance. Tickets might have run about 50 cents, old-timers recall. But earlier in the afternoon shed seen Elvis, with her friend Kay McCullers, performing in the auditorium at Fort Myers High School. Somehow, hed agreed to come visit the school. When (the principal) said we could all go to the auditorium if we wanted to see Elvis, well, pretty much the whole school got up and went, Mrs. McCullers recalls. At least all the girls did. The boys were intimidated. Not by Elvis, but by the girls. We were all screaming and swooning, is why, Mrs. McCullers remembers. For months, young people had been secretly buying Elvis records (45s) at McCrorys five-and-dime store and sneaking them home. They could also hear his songs late at night on their transistor radios, the music broadcasting out of Memphis, she remembers. That evening, the Exhibition Hall was packed, and not with the greatest generation. All the adults just hated that music, Mrs. McCullers says. So they were home worrying, or making sure their kids didnt sneak out. Mother would not allow us to go, admits Rene Lawrie. We were allowed to see Conway Twitty, but not Elvis. My sister threw quite a fit in front of mother, demanding to go. But no. The young Phoebe Blankenship, though, wasnt sorry shed agreed to recite to her father the lyrics of every song, since he claimed the music was indecipherable. That was his price of acquiescence. Elvis was dreamy, with dark pomp hair and swivel hips, she remembers. He sang Milkcow Blues Boogie, and Thats All Right, Mama. We screamed, and screamed and screamed. Phoebe was 15, but Mr. Presley was much older 21. A 6-foot Tennessean with sweet-tea manners and pink Cadillac taste crowned by an oil-slick pompadour, Elvis was the pelvis-thrusting, hip-swiveling white ambassador of black music, not just in the South, but in the United States and Europe. Milkcow Blues Boogie, for example, came from a song called Milk Cow Blues by Sleepy John Estes, recorded in 1930. The great bluesman Robert Johnson did a 1937 version (he called it Milkcows Calf Blues), before it was picked up and recorded in 1941 by white performers, Johnnie Lee Wills and later his more famous brother, Bob Wills. Then Elvis got it. And he seemed to get everything else, punching the color, swagger, sound and sexual innuendo right up through a smalltown culture that his then-youthful audience still adores for its gentleness and lack of fear nobody ever locked their doors, for example. But that culture also now horrifies them for its ingrained racism. Its terrible to think back on it, but it was absolutely totally segregated. We didnt even question it, thats just the way it was, says Mrs. Lawrie. My father didnt like Catholics or Jews or Germans or any of the presidents or black people. So one day he was going on and on about all this, and I said, Daddy, what would you have done if you were born black? And he had a good answer. He said, Id like to think I would have been a decent, hardworking man. But rock n roll and the brash young Elvis were only part of the changes coming in May 1955. A y ear earlier, the landmark Supreme Court case, Brown vs. the Board of Education of Topeka had marked the way for school desegregation, a statement that President Dwight D. Eisenhower punctuated with a powerful exclamation point in 1957, when he sent units from the 101st Airborne Division into Little Rock, Ark. They walked nine black kids into the public high school over orders to keep them out from the Arkansas governor, who had called in the Arkansas National Guard. Gas was 22 cents a gallon, the cost of a house averaged about $22,000, the average annual income was $4,150, and no one had ever heard of an inter state highwa y in 1955. But the following year, President Eisenhower signed into law the $33.5 billion Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 that would ultimately connect 90 percent of American cities with 50,000 or more residents. Elvis, meanwhile, would perform on 28 of the 31 days in May (and for months and years beyond), traveling those country roads from as far south and west as New Orleans, to as far north and east as Norfolk, Va. The journey took its toll on him and on the nation. For that, he left the world at 42, on Aug. 16, 1977. But he was here. And rock n roll will never die. 1 S a H T o E roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

He has a much keener sense of the direction of negotiations over Irans nuclear program than the president of the United States, and is evidently much more forthright about it. When the Iranians and the United States cut what was portrayed as a tentative deal on the Iranian nuclear program, they described it differently. The U.S. emphasized that sanctions would only be phased out gradually and that inspections would ensure complete transparency. Ayatollah Khamenei tweeted that there wasnt really a deal, and oh yeah, sanctions would be lifted immediately and inspections wouldnt be allowed to impinge on Irans security in other words, would not include military sites. With its position rapidly eroding in Congress, the Obama administration felt an urgency to tout the non-triumph of the non-deal with reassuring details that either hadnt truly been agreed to, or that the Iranians would be able to back us off of. Once Obama announced and defended the deal as the only alternative to war, he lost whatever leverage he ever had. The best bet now is that Iran will get a signing bonus of perhaps $50 billion upfront, and the phased element of the removal of the sanctions will be window dressing. On inspections, it seems highly unlikely that the Iranians will give way on their military sites. Why would they? They have been able to wring concessions from Obama on almost everything else important from maintaining thousands of centrifuges, to continuing to enrich, to maintaining its Fordow site buried in a mountain. The presidents fallback of last resort is snap-back sanctions that supposedly will punish any Iranian violations, but they will depend on Chinese and Russian cooperation. The Russians just stuck a finger in our eye by agreeing to sell Iran a sophisticated air-defense system. A blase Obama said he was surprised that the Russians hadnt sold Iran the missiles before. Sometimes you wonder if Obama is even trying. But the scandal is that he isnt a naif; he is a sucker by design. Just as he gave the Castro regime everything he could while demanding almost nothing in return, he is not too concerned with what he is getting from Iran (as long, that is, as he can abide by his Jesuitical pledge that Iran wont get a nuclear weapon on his watch). As Michael Doran of the Hudson Institute writes, Iran has had three goals during its long negotiation with the West: preserving its nuclear infrastructure, rolling back sanctions and unraveling the international legal regime isolating it. Obama is on the verge of giving it all three because he values a new detente with Iran over everything else. This is supposed to be transformative, but its not clear how giving the Iran regime its nuclear program and massive economic relief and international legitimacy on top of it will modify its hegemonic designs and behavior. There is every reason to believe that Iran will continue its aggression, now with a helpful boost from the United States. The Great Satan is not what it used to be. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.A century of women working for peaceOne hundred years ago, more than 1,000 women gathered here in The Hague during World War I, demanding peace. Britain denied passports to more than 120 women, forbidding them from making the trip to suppress their peaceful dissent. Now, a century later, in these very violent times, nearly 1,000 women have gathered here again, this time from Africa, Asia and Latin America, as well as Europe and North America, saying No to wars from Iraq to Afghanistan to Yemen to Syria, not to mention the wars in our streets at home. They were marking the 100th anniversary of the founding of WILPF, the Womens International League for Peace and Freedom. Dr. Aletta Jacobs, a Dutch suffragist who co-founded the group a century ago, said the purpose of the original gathering in 1915 was to empower women to protest against war and to suggest steps which may lead to warfare being an impossibility. Among the women here were four Nobel Peace Prize winners. Shirin Ebadi was awarded the prize in 2003 for advocating for human rights for Iranian women, children and political prisoners. She was the first Muslim woman, and the first Iranian, to receive a Nobel. Nevertheless, she has lived in exile since 2009, and has only seen her husband once since then. Had books been thrown at people, at the Taliban, instead of bombs, and had schools been built in Afghanistan, Ebadi said in her keynote address to the WILPF conference this week, ,000 schools could have been built in memory of the 3,000 people who died on 9/11 at this time, we wouldnt have had ISIS. Lets not forget that the roots of the ISIS rest in the Taliban. She was joined by her sister laureates Leymah Gbowee, who helped achieve a negotiated peace during the civil wars in Liberia; Mairead Maguire, who won the peace prize in 1976 at the age of 32 for advancing an end to the conflict in her native Northern Ireland; and Jody Williams, a Vermonter who led the global campaign to ban land mines, and who now is organizing to ban killer robots, weapons that kill automatically, without the active participation of a human controller. These four world-renowned Nobel laureates were joined by nearly a thousand deeply committed peace activists from around the globe. Madeleine Rees, the secretary-general of WILPF, recalled the history of the first gathering in 1915, and how it was organized: It wouldnt have happened, but for the suffrage movement, she told me, because you dont just start a mass movement. You actually have to have an organizational structure to make that happen. That had started with the suffragette movement. ... Every single one of those women who went to The Hague ... were demanding the right to vote. They saw, quite rightly, that the absence of women in making decisions in government meant a greater likelihood of war. Kozue Akibayashi is WILPFs new president. After World War II, the U.S. required that Japans Constitution explicitly forbid it from pursuing war to settle disputes with foreign states. The majority of people in Japan support the peace constitution, Akibayashi explained. President Barack Obama, however, like George W. Bush before him, is pressuring Japan to eliminate the pacifistic Article Nine from the Japanese Constitution. He hosted Japans prime minister, Shinzo Abe, in Washington this week, celebrating Abe as he works to restore Japans military to its former offensive capacity. Akibayashi and thousands of others also are protesting the planned expansion of the U.S. military presence on Okinawa. Africa activist Hakima Abbas was also in The Hague. I interviewed her hours after mass graves were reported in Nigeria, containing victims of the militant group Boko Haram. The story of Boko Haram, she told me, is an intersection with violent Islamist fundamentalisms, with global capitalism and with militarization ... fundamentalisms, though, dont start and end with Islamic fundamentalisms in Africa. Weve seen Christian fundamentalisms in Uganda, and the persecution of LGBTQI people. She then made a connection to the street protests in Baltimore this week: In your own country, she told me, the white supremacist and Christian right fundamentalisms are exacerbated by the gun culture and the promotion of an armed police force, which is killing black women, men, trans people and children. ... So fundamentalisms is really something that we have to address globally. I asked Shirin Ebadi if she had advice for the people of the world. She replied with a simple yet powerful prescription for peace, laying out the work for WILPF as it enters its second century: Treat the people of Afghanistan the same as you treat your own people. Look at Iraqi children the same as you look at your own children. Then you will see that the solution is there. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

PROFILES IN PARADISEHappily serving those who can never repay him When Gary Price served on the Naples City Council, including as vice mayor, he had influence and the respect of others because his comments were thoughtful, balanced and well articulated. He seemed always concerned about the process being fair and was a strong advocate for creating an environment in the city that inspired investment in both residential and commercial endeavors. He always sought out advice from trusted friends and advisors, including Garrett Richter, Dudley Goodlette and John Allen. Gary termed out on City Council and considered running for the vacated U.S Congressional seat in 2013, but the time wasnt right for his young family. Gary was born and raised in Granville, Ohio, the son of a real estate broker and a builder/developer. His dad put him to work on a construction crew when Gary was 13. He basically gave me nails and a hammer and put me on a roofing crew, Gary recalls. Over the next couple years, he worked his way up to managing the construction crews and later overseeing both the construction and development with his dad prior to college. He paid his own way through Ohio State University, earning a double major in finance and real estate/urban analysis. A member of the varsity fencing team all four years, he competed in the Junior Olympics and won third place in the Big Ten championship. Since 2006, Gary has been a founding partner of Fifth Avenue Advisors. One of the firms main efforts in recent years was to bring the Chicago Cubs to Naples and Collier County for spring training. Unfortunately, the Cubs opted to stay in Arizona, but Fifth Avenue Advisors remains committed to finding ways to improve the local economy, Gary says. Married for 24 years, he and Kim are parents to Garrett and Kaitlin, both students at Naples High School. The family belongs to Moorings Presbyterian Church. I feel lucky that my family had the opportunity to come to Naples 15 years ago, he says. I have been impressed how the school system has supported our special-needs son and challenged our gifted daughter. Many, including me, still believe Gary should run for public office in some capacity; so far he has demurred. He does, however, allow that, Ive always had a passion to serve, and it brings me great joy to serve those who could never repay me. Stay tuned. Bob Harden is the producer and host of The Bob Harden Show, airing from 7-8 a.m. weekdays at bobharden.com. i s t J t i bobHARDEN bobharden@hotmail.com Talking points with Gary PriceSomething your mom was always right about: She was right about everything far more than I ever gave her credit for.First job: My first job was with Gallo Wine, selling wine to grocery stores in Southern California.What would you be doing if you werent doing this? I always dreamed of being a pilot. I turned the dream into a hobby five years ago.Guilty pleasure: Unwinding with an episode of American Pickers and a bag of jellybeans.Next vacation: A tour of the east coast of the United States with the family.Something on your bucket list: Attending the Masters.A skill or talent you wish you had: A better lter just because something pops into my head does not mean it should come out of my mouth. But my passion is to tell people what I think and say things that others might not be willing to say; I do that with a sense of service to others, not to be hurtful. Something people might be surprised to learn about you: I attended Valley Forge Military Academy and appeared in the movie Taps. Advice for your children: Work harder than everyone else, be kind to others and never underestimate the power of please and thank you.Something that makes you laugh: My son Garrett can find humor in just about anything. He makes me laugh and brings a smile to my face daily. Favorite thing about the Paradise Coast: The friendly nature and quality of people that live here.What the Paradise Coast really needs: A more diverse economy.

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 239.939.3456elections reporting.

The newest survey reveals that nearly half of teens (48 percent) think their parents will help pay for college, but only 16 percent of parents of teens report planning to pay for post-secondary education. Based on those findings, it is obvious that parents and teens need to have honest conversations about money management, including paying for college, says Anne Frazier, president and CEO of Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida. Together as a family, it is important to develop a plan for life after high school whatever that looks like for your family. The survey also reinforces that parents serve as teens biggest teachers when it comes to money management skills. Although 84 percent of teens in the survey report looking to their parents for information on how to manage money, more than a third of parents say their familys approach to financial matters is to not discuss money with their children and to let kids be kids. In addition, teen girls are more likely than boys to say their parents dont talk to them enough about money management and paying for college. When asked about their future earning power at their first real job, 24 percent of teen girls think they will make $15,000 or less, while only 16 percent of boys feel the same. Moms also are significantly more likely than dads to say their child will earn $15,000 or less. Junior Achievement USA has commissioned the Teens & Personal Finance Survey for the last 16 years, partnering with The Allstate Foundation since 2005. The 2015 study was conducted online on behalf of JA by Harris Poll in January 2015 among 801 parents of teens ages 13-18 years old and 800 teens ages 13-18. Other key findings from the survey include: Interest in community college is on the rise. When asked to consider the rising cost of college, a larger number of teens in 2015 are considering attending a local community college instead of another college or university: 22 percent in 2014 rose to 29 percent in 2015. The number of teens who think their parents dont spend enough time talking to them about managing money rose significantly this year (21 percent in 2014 to 32 percent in 2015). An executive summary of the 2015 Junior Achievement USA/Allstate Foundation Teens & Personal Finance Survey is available at ja.org.

OFFICES IN NAPLES, FORT MYERS & CAPE CORAL Foundation helps pave the way to college SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYAlan Cuevas approach to education has changed dramatically over the last four years. Today, the Immokalee High School senior is a top student who will enter college this fall with a full-ride academic scholarship covering the cost of his undergraduate degree. It almost feels unreal sometimes, because I know that when I was an eighth-grader, I wasnt in the top when it comes to putting effort into school, he says. I didnt get bad grades, but I wasnt necessarily devoted to school. Now, when I look back, I understand what helped change my mind. Alan points to several factors that led him to buckle down and excel scholastically: his mothers serious health issues, his acceptance into The Immokalee Foundations educational empowerment programs and the influence of his TIF volunteer mentor, John Henry. Right now, Im doing things with the future in mind, not just a semester, he says. Biology is his intended major, with an eye toward eventually becoming a doctor, a physician assistant or perhaps a biology professor. But hes still undecided on whether he will study at Allegany College or Arcadia University; both Pennsylv ania schools are offering full scholarships. Mr. Henrys mentorship has been instrumental to Alans success. Hes really good at pushing me to expand my boundaries and in leading me, Alan says. He makes me put effort into my work to get the things I want. He doesnt just tell me, Here, this is what youre going to do. He helps me come up with my own ideas, and I really like that. All TIF mentors play a key role in their students progress, according to TIFs Noemi Perez, manager of the foundations Take Stock in Children and College Success programs. TIF staff meets with the students once a quarter, while mentors meet with them weekly to offer support, resources and encouragement. The mentors, theyre the ones who befriend and encourage them, Ms. Perez explains. Take Stock in Children starts in middle school, continues through high school and includes the transition into college, which is when TIFs College Success program begins. To be part of the program, students must keep a pledge to maintain good grades and behavior, meet weekly with their mentor, volunteer in the community and remain drugand crime-free. Ms. Perez, an Immokalee High School graduate, now finds gratification in helping TIF students prepare for future success. Its very rewarding, she says. Theres no other word to describe it. We work with the students starting in middle school, and we see how they grow and transition into different people than when we first met them. Its a satisfying feeling to see them go after what they want. We guide them through challenges along the way. TIFs programs have been invaluable, says Elizabeth Martinez, who will attend Arcadia University in suburban Philadelphia, where she will major in international business with a concentration in marketing and economics. It feels really great knowing I dont have to worry about any financial aspects, she says. Its just one step closer to making my dreams come true. Elizabeths mother, Patricia Lopez, was shocked by news of the scholarship. She really could not believe it until she was dropping me off at the airport to visit the campus, Elizabeth says. Shes really proud of me. Francisco Cuevas has been accepted at St. Johns University in Minnesota, where hell major in accounting to become a certified public accountant. His career goal is emerge as CFO of a large company. He is the first in his family to attend college. Francisco (who is a best friend of, but not related to, Alan Cuevas) feels blessed to be in a position to realize his dreams. I can set an example for my younger siblings and pave a road for them to follow, he says. Ive always felt The Immokalee Foundation is a part of my family, he says. Theyve really helped me become successful by showing me the right path. TIFs range of education programs focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences and life skills development leading to economic independence.

Safety reminders for prom, graduation celebrationsWith proms and graduation season approaching, the Collier County Sheriffs Office offers parents the following tips to help their teens celebrate safely: Communicate with your teen regularly and openly about alcohol and drugs and about your expectations and rules for prom and graduation outings. Communicate with the parents of your teens friends about your expectations and theirs. Know what your teens plans are and who will be driving. Remind your teen to always buckle up. Make sure your teen has a cell phone. Establish times when your teen will call to check in with you. Never provide alcohol or drugs to your teen or others. Volunteer to drive to or supervise a prom or graduation event. Dont rent a hotel room for teens. Stay up until your teen gets home. Regular and open communication between parents and teens can make a difference in preventing drunken driving, drug use, DUI accidents and other destructive behavior. Take the time to give your teens the information and tools they need to stay safe.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA16 WEEK OF MAY 7-13, 2015 Marital enhancementSaudi Arabias very first sex accessory shop (in the holy city of Mecca) should be opening soon, according to news reports operated by a Moroccan Muslim, backed by the German adult mega-retailer Beate Uhse, and supposedly fully compliant with Islamic law. Owner Abdelaziz Aouragh told Agence France-Presse he would stock 18 different Islam-appropriate toys for married couples, along with oils and fragrances that he said would enhance the marital experience. (He did not actually describe the toys, but ruled out U.S. mainstays such as inflatable dolls and vibrators.) One such halal sex shop opened in Turkey in 2013, and Aouraghs financial partner runs a similar enterprise online. The continuing crisis The February gun-and-baby-carrying workshop in Johnston, Iowa, was so successful that instructor Melody Lauer and CrossRoads Shooting Sports owner Tom Hudson plan more. Lauer insisted that she does not necessarily encourage a baby-holding mother to arm herself, but if she chooses to, safety would of course require that she be familiar with the tricky procedure of drawing, aiming and firing even though she might be wearing a baby in a sling in front of her body. Hudson, noting the fastgrowing market of gun sales to women, said scheduling the workshop was a no-brainer. What is believed to be Americas only hard-nosed gang composed only of gay and transgendered AfricanAmericans hopes to have its story told soon by filmmakers who emphasize the groups transition from fighters to entrepreneurs working to establish their own clothing line, according to a March report on advocate.com. The gang, originally organized for protection (We gonna get our respect one way or another, said one), hails from the violent Washington, D.C., Trinidad neighborhood, yet some of the 200 members (in their teens or early 20s) insist on stilettos, lipstick and mascara (while carrying knives, brass knuckles and mace). Questionable judgments Pioneering British facial surgeon Ninian Peckitt, 63, facing a Medical Practitioners Tribunal in Manchester in April, was accused by a witness of repeatedly having punched one patient in the face during a procedure in order to straighten a fracture. Dr. Peckitt acknowledged having used his hands to manipulate bones in the patients face, calling it a routine surgery-avoiding procedure sometimes required for extensive injuries. Suspicions Confirmed: Two airport screeners at Denver International collaborated in an ongoing ploy in which one, a male, signaled to a female colleague that he had spotted an attractive male passenger in line that he might like to grope. The female would then suddenly notice an anomaly in the screening and ask that passenger to stand aside so the male agent could inspect him further by genital and posterior fondling (over his clothing). The two agents were fired in February after a Transportation Security Administration investigator, having been alerted to the scheme, observed it in action. Florida-weird Mohammed Almarri, 21, was arrested on multiple charges in Tampa on April 12 after illegally entering a neighbors apartment in a high-rise and forcing the owner onto the balcony. For reasons undisclosed in the police report, Almarri then allegedly microwaved the mans wallet in his oven. Joseph Williams, 35 (and with several pending warrants), was arrested on April 5 in Fort Pierce, after entering the emergency room at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center and Heart Institute, demanding an enema and refusing to leave until he got one. Austin Hatfield, 18, reported to an emergency room in April after being bitten on the lip by a venomous cottonmouth viper in Wimauma. According to a fish and wildlife commission spokesman, Hatfield had been keeping the recently caught snake in an ordinary pillowcase on his bed, and when it got out, Hatfield (ungracefully) recaptured it. (The bite was not fatal.) According to witnesses questioned by the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office (on the scene after shots had been reported at Murphys Express Gas station in March), one customer had fired at another, hitting him in the foot, because he felt that the customer was staring at him while he pumped gas. Leading economic indicators In the face of jokes about proliferating airline charges, the British economy line easyJet added another fee recently. If easyJet, on its own, cancels a flight, it charges a fee of 10 British pounds (about $15) to notify third parties. The airline said that even though its own decision created the issue, it must nonetheless cover its costs to provide cancellation notices to passengers who miss connections or who need to provide verification to collect on private travel-interruption insurance. Is This a Great Country or What? Counting only the pool of bonus money (not regular salaries), employees of New York securities industries in 2014 earned roughly twice as much as the total income paid to all employees in the United States who worked full time at the federal minimum wage ($7.25 an hour). (The statistic, from a report by the Institute for Policy Studies and reinforced by a University of Michigan professor using figures from the New York State Comptroller and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, was featured in a March New York Times analysis.)

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA20 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 7-13, 2015 Drugs that activate brain stem cells may reverse multiple sclerosisTwo drugs already on the market an antifungal and a steroid may potentially take on new roles as treatments for multiple sclerosis. According to a study published in Nature, researchers discovered that these drugs may activate stem cells in the brain to stimulate myelin producing cells and repair white matter, which is damaged in multiple sclerosis. The study was partially funded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, part of the National Institutes of Health. Specialized cells called oligodendrocytes lay down multiple layers of a fatty white substance known as myelin around axons, the long wires that connect brain cells. Myelin acts as an insulator and enables fast communication between brain cells. In multiple sclerosis there is breakdown of myelin and this deterioration leads to muscle weakness, numbness and problems with vision, coordination and balance. To replace damaged cells, the scientific field has focused on direct transplantation of stem cell-derived tissues for regenerative medicine, and that approach is likely to provide enormous benefit down the road. We asked if we could find a faster and less invasive approach by using drugs to activate native nervous system stem cells and direct them to form new myelin. Our ultimate goal was to enhance the bodys ability to repair itself, said Paul J. Tesar, Ph.D., associate professor at Case Western Reserve School of Medicine in Cleveland, and senior author of the study. It is unknown how myelin-producing cells are damaged, but research suggests they may be targeted by malfunctioning immune cells and that multiple sclerosis may start as an autoimmune disorder. Current therapies for multiple sclerosis include anti-inflammatory drugs, which help prevent the episodic relapses common in multiple sclerosis, but are less effective at preventing longterm disability. Scientists believe that therapies that promote myelin repair might improve neurologic disability in people with multiple sclerosis. Adult brains contain oligodendrocyte progenitor cells, which are stem cells that generate myelin-producing cells. OPCs are found to multiply in the brains of multiple sclerosis patients as if to respond to myelin damage, but for unknown reasons they are not effective in restoring white matter. In the current study, Dr. Tesar wanted to see if drugs already approved for other uses were able to stimulate OPCs to increase myelination. Dr. Tesars team found that two compounds in particular, miconazole (an antifungal) and clobetasol (a steroid), stimulated mouse and human OPCs into generating myelin-producing cells. Next, they examined whether the drugs, when injected into a mouse model of multiple sclerosis, could improve re-myelination. They found that both drugs were effective in activating OPCs to enhance myelination and reverse paralysis. As a result, almost all of the animals regained the use of their hind limbs. They also found that the drugs acted through two very different molecular mechanisms. The NINDS is the nations leading funder of research on the brain and nervous system. The mission of NINDS is to seek fundamental knowledge about the brain and nervous system and to use that knowledge to reduce the burden of neurological disease. The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences is a distinctly different entity in the research ecosystem. Rather than targeting a particular disease or fundamental science, NCATS focuses on what is common across diseases and the translational process. The center emphasizes innovation and deliverables, relying on the power of data and new technologies to develop, demonstrate and disseminate advancements in translational science that bring about tangible improvements in human health.

HEALTHY LIVINGNCH strategy similar to that of the AHAIt has been my privilege over the past five years to serve as one of about 40 participants from our region (extending from Tennessee south and Mississippi east, and including Puerto Rico) on one of the American Hospital Associations regional policy boards. We meet three times a year to share best practices, benchmark, brainstorm and address concerns regarding health care in our nation. At our most recent meeting, we reviewed AHAs nine strategic assumptions. It struck me how similar they are to NCHs mandates, as we progress from a repair shop orientation to one focused on prevention. Here they are: 1. Continued pressure on health-care spending, and a squeeze on margins, which motivates hospitals toward more efficient, better and safer care delivery. Smart institutions (including NCH) will position themselves with smart payers such as Florida Blue to share efficiencies. 2. Acquisitions, mergers and various contractual arrangements will continue in pursuit of greater efficiencies, cost reductions, geographic coverage, care coordination, access to capital and tertiary clinical care. NCHs affiliation with Mayo is a perfect example of adding tertiary care access for patients in Southwest Florida. 3. Consumerism is growing as outof-pocket costs encourage price comparisons. Shopping for value, defined as quality divided by cost, is smart for everyone. The Internet is the primary vehicle for sharing information. Transparency will be appropriately mandated by patients. 4. The pace of change is accelerating from volume to value, as mandated by the Center for Medicare and Medicaids edict to change the payment system in the next few years. Like the adoption of computerized medical records, a new payment system is inevitable. 5. Information technology will facilitate care delivery, care management and mobile technologies. With our IT partner Cerner, we already are sharing best practices such as Smart Rooms with health-care systems from around allenWEISSallen.weiss@nchmd.org SEE WEISS, A21 MEGAN KERN / CASE WESTERN RESERVE UNIVERSITYAn artists representation of the study.

Clinical integration and the ability to manage population health are changing from fee-for-service individual care to population-based payment systems. Bringing the Blue Zones Project to Southwest Florida is a decade-long initiative to help bring down health-care expenditures and manage population health by preventing the 80 percent of illnesses we bring upon ourselves. 7. Retail providers from outside traditional health care are here to stay (Wal-Mart, CVS, Doctor on Demand, etc.). Tele-neurology and tele-radiology are early successful attempts to become geographically agnostic. 8. Performance improvement has been inculcated into the fabric of leading systems, including NCH, for the past 15 years, as verified by continuous independent assessors including Leapfrog, the Society of Thoracic Surgery, the Joint Commission and the American College of Surgeons. 9. Governing boards should be involved in strategic planning and system transformation. At NCH, our 14-member board of trustees is intimately involved in change management to help ensure that everyone lives longer, happier, and healthier lives. At our AHA meetings, we also discuss ways to respond to these challenges through integrated health-care leadership, improving community behavioral health, reforming the health-care delivery system, rural health challenges and the patient experience as measured by a star rating system. Our plate, as they say, is a full one. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.Are you at risk for high blood pressure?The American Heart Association is raising awareness about high blood pressure, a silent killer that damages arteries, heart and other organs, as part of the National High Blood Pressure Month. Some 80 million U.S. adults (one in three) have been diagnosed with HBP, which is also known as hypertension. This symptomless disease, when left untreated, can have dire health consequences, including: Damage to heart and coronary arteries (heart attack, heart disease, congestive heart failure, aortic dissection and atherosclerosis) Stroke Kidney damage Memory loss Vision loss Erectile dysfunction Fluid in the lungs Angina Peripheral artery disease Its easy to have your blood pressure checked regularly at pharmacies and doctors offices. Blood pressure is considered high when it reaches 140/90 mm Hg (140 systolic or above, or 90 diastolic or above). The health consequences of hypertension are magnified when other risk factors are also present, such as age, gender (male), smoking, high cholesterol, diabetes and inactivity. At age 50, total life expectancy is roughly five years longer for people with normal blood pressure than for hypertensive people. You can assess your risks for HBP using the AHA calculator at heart.org. Visit the website for more information about National High Blood Pressure Month.

Instead, he earned a doctor of pharmacy degree, followed by a law degree, and eventually became administrator of a health-care agency in Orange County, California. A call from an employment headhunter and a little dog named Sido changed the direction of his life. The recruiter represented a not-forprofit organization, and approached Avanzino because he had a reputation for saving financially distressed organizations. After three months of interviews, Mr. Avanzino learned he was being sought by an animal-welfare organization, the San Francisco SPCA. He was still passionate about animals and excited to take the job when it was offered. The selection committee never expected that in his quest to save an organization 90 days away from bankruptcy, he would turn the idea of a shelter upside down. Mr. Avanzino and his team instituted new hours to make it easier for people to come see potential pets. They got rid of the high-altitude chamber used to kill unadopted animals and started a volunteer program and a spay/neuter clinic. We just started trying to do right by the animals one step at a time, and the community got engaged and the community saved the pets, he says. Then came Sido. My belief in the no-kill nation came back in 1979 when a dog named Sido came to the San Francisco SPCA, Avanzino says. She was 11 years old, and people thought that dogs over 5 years old couldnt be saved, couldnt find a home. For that reason, Sidos owner had stipulated in her will that Sido be taken to the veterinarian and destroyed upon her death. Mr. Avanzino fought for the dogs life in court and won. The support Sido received from the public and the legislative and judicial system inspired him to help even more animals have the opportunity to live. That goal was a factor in his 1999 move to what is now Maddies Fund, the largest dog and cat charity in the world. There he helped to create the idea of shelter medicine, promote sterilization of feral cats, enable communities to offer an adoption guarantee for healthy and treatable animals, and increase the business acumen of shelter directors to match the passion they had for pets. Of his career, he says: To be part of that experience, to watch the community and the not-for-profits and the government ... embrace the importance of our bond was a dream come true for me in terms of recognizing what our species should be doing for the other species that share our home. I was able to work on my passion, work with my passion, work for my passion and make a meaningful difference. Mr. Avanzino is retiring as president of Maddies Fund next month, but hes not leaving animal welfare behind. His dog, Bri, and cat, Puddy, will see more of him than they already do, but he will still consult for the organization, and hell become involved in an even more personal way by fostering pets. I expect to stay engaged in the cause that has taken my heart and my soul and all of my energy over the last 40 years, Mr. Avanzino says. I cant leave it behind. Its part of my DNA, and until my last breath, I will be part of it. PET TALESBreaking down barriersA legacy of lifesaving was inspired by a dog doomed to die but saved by loveRich Avanzinos passion for animals and advocacy of a humane ethic will continue in retirement.

Cannot be combined with any other offer.Nina Nordgren, M.D. SWFLEYE.COM THE DIVA DIARIESChalking up successes for the female Cyrano of the InternetHark back to last September wont you, dear readers, when, while with way too much time on my hands as I was recovering from knee surgery, I helped two of my single friends create and run their Match.com dating profiles. Both were busy women with careers and life, and while they each hoped to meet Mr. Right, neither had all the extra hours in the day it takes to devote to dealing with all the winks, emails and page views that online dating entails. He viewed my page, said one of the girls. Do I now view his? What if I dont like him? Will I lead him on by viewing him?! You can see what a slippery slope it can be. So my friends asked me to negotiate some of the finer points for them. When I agreed, they gave me their passwords and let me become the female Cyrano of the Internet. And Im delighted to announce that my brief stint as an online yenta was most successful: One of my friends, Cindy, is engaged to be married, and, yes, Im taking all the credit, making this the third marriage in which my matchmaking was a key factor. Not that Im bragging. Its just that if youre going to be a matchmaker, you have to be confident that you know it all or that you at least know more about your friends than they themselves do.Cindy, for instance, was done with online dating. After a couple of months on Match.com, shed sat through more than a few not-so-great dates and had sort of abandoned her profile. She was ready to cancel it when Victor, a handsome, funny Irishman living in Naples, contacted her with a flattering and friendly note. She asked me if she should respond or just cancel her Match membership altogether. When her fianc toasted me at their engagement party last weekend, I couldnt help but beam. Sometimes knowing it all isnt so bad. Several years ago, another girlfriend was so fed up by dating in Southwest Florida that she decided she was going to pack it all up and move somewhere anywhere where there were more eligible dudes in their 40s. One of her choices was Austin, Texas. Like Cindy, she was also ready to throw in the online dating towel. But after she booked a trip to Texas for a week to check it out, I suggested she change the location on her Match profile from Southwest Florida to Austin, and that she put as an opener on her profile something like this, Potential new Austin resident looking for a tall, funny, music-loving, tour guide while visiting. Cowboy boots a plus. At first she was skeptical, but she decided to give it a shot. And thanks to all her suitors, her dance card was completely full during her visit. And thanks to one of them, she celebrated her four-year wedding anniversary with her Austin husband in April. Sometimes, matchmaking is more indirect, in that you might just nudge someone out of her comfort zone. In the case of my friends Liz and Greg, who celebrate a decade of marriage at the end of this month, its less about knowing it all and more about going with your instinct. When two people you love dont look like the perfect pair on paper hes a traveling professional actor; shes ready to settle down and buy a house you just have to keep putting them together in social situations until they realize what you knew all along. And bam! A house and two kids later, a yenta is born. And while its always nice to be right, its much, much nicer to see your friends happy and thats an opportunity you never want to pass up, whether they like it or not. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF MAY 7-13, 2015 MONEY & INVESTINGNo big surprises in corporate earnings reportsWhere were you a couple of Fridays ago between 9-11 p.m.? I like to live it up on the weekends, so I was hitting it hard in my usual style: on my couch in my PJs with a glass of merlot in one hand and the clicker in the other. But this was an exciting night. I was one of the 17 million Americans watching Diane Sawyer interview Bruce Jenner. And just like everyone else who was tuned in, I already knew exactly what the former Olympian was going to say to Ms. Sawyer. Yet there we all were, glued to our televisions. It reminded me of corporate earnings season (which we are in the middle of right now). Heres why: The Securities and Exchange Commission requires every publicly traded company to publicly report earnings every three months. Up until about 10 years ago, earnings reports and their subsequent discussions were quite interesting. CEOs and CFOs informed investors about the state of their business and where they thought things were going, which gave the rest of us some real insight into the state of their industries. But then a few guys in Houston working for this small energy trading company called Enron cut a few corners, and the federal government decided a few more rules about how public companies could operate were in order. So in 2002, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) was passed. And everything changed. All of a sudden, CEOs and CFOs could be criminally liable if they passed along information that was not true or that could be construed as not true or that they should have known was not true or that could appear not true if recorded and played backward sl owly. My experience dealing with corporate leaders has showed me that most of them enjoy things such as corporate jets, steak dinners and stock options while tending to dislike things such as courtrooms and jail time. What it all comes down to is earnings calls today that are as unscripted as an episode of The Hills. And most times, just as informative. To illustrate my point, lets take a look at the recent Apple earnings call, one of the most anticipated earnings reports of the season. Like many others, I was anxiously waiting for CEO Tim Cook to deliver an in-depth analysis of the company along with what he saw going forward for the tech giant. And boy, did he deliver. He informed us that a lot of people bought iPhones, and that a lot of people will probably buy iPhones in the future. And he told us that Apple has enough cash on hand to buy everyone in the world an iPhone, along with a Ferrari and a three-bedroom starter home. Im obviously am being a little simplistic here, but the overall point remains that earnings reports have become incredibly boring, ultra-conservative and non-forward reaching. Admittedly, they do a great job of giving huge amounts of information as to what has happened in the last three months. But, as I will discuss in future articles, companies are valued on future earnings, not the past. Therefore, I would argue that most information contained in quarterly reports should be nonmarket moving. So what should your takeaway be from this column? As you can probably guess, I think most market reactions to them are shortsighted and ridiculous.Take Boeing, for example. Lets say that Boeings report tells us the company missed its expected earnings number by a couple of pennies per share. News agencies will pump out witty headlines Boeings Earnings Lose Altitude and in the earnings call, the CEO will read a prepared script detailing that Boeing sold a lot of planes and will likely sell a lot of planes in the future. Then hell provide a whole lot of data that few people care about other than highly paid Wall Street analysts who have a closer relationship with Excel than with their spouse. The result of all this will be a drop in Boeing stock. But has anything really changed about the company? So Boeing thought it was going to deliver a couple of more planes this quarter and instead will deliver them next quarter. I would rather buy or sell the stock based on how I see the airlines performing, government spending and the macro environment.Heres the takeaway: Next time you see stocks in your portfolio soar or sink based on an earnings report, dont overreact. I almost never buy or sell a stock on earnings day unless a strategic change in the business is revealed, such as an acquisition or change in management. Take a few days to digest the information and decide if anything fundamental about the business has changed. If not, just do what I do: Put on your PJs, grab a glass of wine and tune in to whatever crazy antics the Kardashian clan is getting into this week.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF MAY 7-13, 2015 27,000 people transition from one job to the next, Mr. Studners new book guides readers through the complicated process of conducting a successful job search campaign. His systematic approach to finding a job includes online resources and an app with information about job leads, companies and recruiters around the world. Here is some of his advice for TGIFers that can help them look forward to Mondays again: First, pinpoint why you have lost interest in your job. Its possible that you feel gut-churning dread (or maybe just soul-crushing boredom) when you walk into the office, but youve never put thought into whats causing those feelings. This is the first step you need to take, because the source of your discontent will determine what you do next. To help you get started, heres a list of common reasons why people lose interest in their jobs: My job became boring; it was the same old routine over and over. I am underemployed. I needed this job during the recession, but now that the job market is beginning to grow, well ... The commute has become unbearable. My boss does not appreciate me and is continually on my case. The company is in trouble. Its not growing. There are no new products or services. Any day there could be layoffs, or worse yet, a bankruptcy. I am underpaid, and there are no raises on the horizon. The wait for a promotion will be too long. Its impossible to get all of my work done on time. Too much has been dumped on me due to downsizings. This company doesnt offer overtime pay, and I have to work late all the time. My benefits package has changed for the worse. Im not learning anything new. This is just a dead-end position. Next, explore whether a change is possible within your current organization. Before you jump ship, Mr. Studner urges you to explore what, if anything, you might do to change things. Sometimes employers dont realize their employees are discontent, he says. And when they find out, they are often willing to work with them to make things better. Here are four examples of what you might consider: Request a change of positions inside the company (providing there are openings, you have the skills and/or the company is willing to train you). Go back to school in the evening to add skills to your toolbox so you become more valuable to your present employer (or a future one). Have a heart-to-heart discussion with your boss (provided he or she is approachable) to discuss your workload. Ask if its possible for you to receive help, or if the workload can be redistributed. If you are underpaid for the work you do, ask for a raise (provided the company can afford it). Whatever you decide to ask for in this discussion, dont threaten to leave the company if your request isnt granted even if thats whats in the back of your mind, Mr. Studner stresses. At this point, you want to keep the conversation positive and avoid alienating your employer. If necessary, take steps to move on. If, after all things are considered, you determine its time for a change, what next? The key word for you now is preparation, Mr. Studner says. A job search campaign is not just slapping together a resume and sending it out in a mass mailing, especially if you are looking for that TGIM job. Here are the steps you need to take: Do not discuss your plans to leave with anyone. This especially applies to individuals within the company, unless you have 100 percent assurance of their confidentiality. If you are unsure, keep your plans to yourself. Make a list of all your job search interests. Next to each prospective position, note your relevant experience (how much time youve spent doing this kind of work) and your pertinent knowledge (how much applicable training youve had). Its OK to list positions for which you have zero experience and/or knowledge, Mr. Studner assures. Remember, you can get training in a relatively short period of time, and its perfectly fine to start on a lower rung of the ladder. If you love what you do, you will become good at it and promotions will be easier. Remember, your objective is a TGIM job. Validate that the job you want exists. When you have identified the kinds of positions you want to explore, do some research with websites like indeed.com. Does your preferred job still exist? Are positions available in the city where you wish to work? What skills are being asked for? Do you have those skills and experience? How and where do you need to apply? Make a detailed list of all your accomplishments. Go back as far as you can in your career. Accomplishments are the most important tools in your job search bag. You will use them in your resume, interviews, letters, replies to advertisements, phone calls, presentations, emails, and even salary negotiations. Prepare a fresh resume. Do not try to rework an old one. A killer resume tells the reader what you have done in a concise, readable manner, Mr. Studner notes. It showcases your most relevant skills and related accomplishments. It should not include exaggerations, however; just the facts. Do research on companies you might like to consider. Before putting companies on your target list, check them out at glassdoor.com and see what former employees have to say. Some reviews might be eye-opening. Begin to explore the job market. If you see ads of interest with specific company names, try to network with someone in that company (for instance, using LinkedIn). Dont rush to send out your resume indiscriminately. Control its distribution. Meet with and prepare your references. Have a conversation with your references (preferably in person). Make sure they are aware of your career goals, that they know how best to attest to your accomplishments and that they will keep your confidentiality. Keep copious chronological notes. Each time you make a new contact, whether its by phone, in person, in a letter or via email, record that persons information. Keep a running list on your computer or smartphone (and back it up) or, if you prefer the old-fashioned way, in a spiral notebook. Beef up your skill set. If your current skills are inadequate, now is the time to enroll in evening or weekend courses, if possible. If you are not disciplined in self-teaching, youll learn faster and easier by getting into a classroom environment, Mr. Studner says. Never stop tweaking your campaign. Based on the feedback you get from your references, mentors and research interviews (or even job interviews), adjust your campaign accordingly. And keep in mind that your resume, cover letter and interview answers will probably need to change with each application, Mr. Studner advises. Before each meeting, think about which of your skills would best fit with this particular company and this particular job. Consider what problems the company might have and how you can solve them. Then tweak your materials to reflect your conclusions. Stay positive. The message you send contacts and prospective employers should be that you are looking to transition into a new opportunity where you can use your skills, and that you are exploring all options. Be positive with everyone, and for sure do not badmouth anyone or your current company, Mr. Studner says.Make it TGIMWhen you take an active role in managing your career, you wont have to settle for a TGIF job, Mr. Studner concludes. If you put in just a few hours every evening, you can work miracles, he says. Your next job should be a joy, give you a feeling of self-worth, and if you become good at what you do, continue to be rewarding. Settle for nothing less than TGIM.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF MAY 7-13, 2015 I trace my roots back to 1919, when my founder borrowed a wagon, some mules and a pump, and launched a business cementing oil wells in Oklahoma. Today Im a top provider of products and services to the oil and gas industry. Based in Houston, I employ more than 75,000 people globally. My services include locating hydrocarbons and managing geological data; drilling and formation evaluation; well construction and completion; and optimizing production through the life of the field. One of my former CEOs is a former U.S. vice president, too, and my ticker symbol evokes 001: A Space Odyssey. Who am I?Know the answer?

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Moneymaking Ideas for TeensSummer is approaching, so its a perfect time for teens to start thinking about how they can earn some money. Heres a list of moneymaking ideas, adapted from The Motley Fool Investment Guide for Teens: 8 Steps to Having More Money Than Your Parents Ever Dreamed Of, by David and Tom Gardner with Selena Maranjian (Touchstone, $16). When someone in your neighborhood goes on vacation, you can care for their pets, turn lights on and off, collect the mail and water plants. Some busy folks might need a year-round dogwalker. Serve older neighbors by buying and delivering groceries, running errands or doing odd jobs, such as changing light bulbs. (Spend a little time chatting with them, too, and you can learn some great life lessons.) Sign up customers whose properties you can tend year-round, mowing lawns, raking leaves, shoveling snow and/or gardening. If you enjoy arts and crafts, make and sell beautiful things such as jewelry, sweaters or photographs. Be a tech guru for neighbors frustrated and confused by their computers or mobile devices. You can perform backups, scan for viruses, solve problems, answer questions and show people how to use their machines. You might even make some good money setting up or maintaining websites for small companies and organizations. Teach skills you have to others, such as piano playing, horseback riding or juggling. You can also play music at functions, publish a newsletter or draw portraits.More ideas: If youre good at a school subject such as math or Spanish, you can become a tutor, helping others to understand it. Factory work, although often dreary, can pay well. At retailers, youll often get employee discounts and sometimes you earn sales commissions, too. If you inquire early enough, you can line up a job at a summer camp, movie theater, amusement park, golf course or parks department. If you enjoy working with young children, see if any nearby day care centers could use some help. A $20,000 ExperimentMy best investment decision was a test I performed some years ago. I gave my broker $10,000 and trusted him to make good investments for me. I took another $10,000 and opened a brokerage account where I invested in stocks I chose myself, having learned of many of them from The Motley Fool.My broker put my money in five mutual funds, and about a year later, that account was up 6.5 percent. Over the same period, I nearly doubled my money with the stocks I chose myself. After that, I decided to invest all my money on my own. B.B., via emailThe Fool Responds: We do believe that individual investors can outperform Wall Streets pros most easily via a simple, inexpensive broad-market index fund, which outperforms most managed mutual funds. Your experiment has a flaw, though, as it lasted only about a year. Over the short run, good stocks can fall and bad ones rise, and the market can swoon for a while. Over the very long run, the stock market has averaged close to 10 percent annually. Its rare to double your money that quickly. Apple Looks JuicyApple (Nasdaq: AAPL) is one of the stocks our readers most often lament having sold way too soon. Well, its actually not too late to buy shares now, if you believe in the companys ability to keep introducing exciting new offerings. Its hard not to believe in Apple, as it possesses the most valuable brand in the world, is sitting on more than $175 billion in cash and investments (as of the end of 2014), and has a wildly successful history of innovation. It has sold 700 millionplus iPhones, including 75 million in the last quarter alone, and its new offerings include the Apple Pay system and the Apple Watch, with some possibly big plans to enter and compete in the multitrillion-dollar auto industry and the cable TV industry, too. Its war chest is a big plus, protecting it from an economic downturn and helping it keep competition at bay. It also means the company will have no problem continuing to pay and increase its dividend, which recently yielded 1.5 percent. Apple has developed its line of products into an ecosystem where theyre all connected, making it hard for customers to switch to competitors. Its also moving aggressively into promising regions abroad, such as China.With a recent P/E ratio near 17 and a forward-looking one near 13, Apple is far from overpriced and worth consideration. You may not know my name, but Im a developer of many of the worlds most popular online games, such as FarmVille, Words With Friends, Pioneer Trail, CityVille, ChefVille, Empires and Allies, and one of the largest poker games around. I bought the NaturalMotion company, so now CSR Racing, CSR Classics and Clumsy Ninja are under my roof, too. My upcoming games include Dawn of Titans. More than a billion people have played my games, and more than 100 million currently play each month. Im based in San Francisco, and my market value recently topped $2 billion. Who am I? (Answer: Zynga) Researching RisksQHow can I research the risks facing various companies? K.W., Moville, IowaAYoull typically find most of a publicly traded American companys risks disclosed by the company itself. Such companies are required to file annual 0-K reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Accessible at websites such as finance.yahoo.com and the companies own websites, they detail a companys financial and operational health and progress, and also address risks facing the business. For example, Boeings 10-K for 2014 cites many risk factors the company faces, such as, Our Commercial Airplanes business depends heavily on commercial airlines, and is subject to unique risks. It explains: Demand for our commercial aircraft is influenced by airline profitability, availability of aircraft financing, world trade policies, government-to-government relations, technological changes, price and other competitive factors, fuel prices, terrorism, epidemics and environmental regulations.Some of many other risks include changes in levels of U.S. government defense spending and losses due to cost overruns on fixed-price contracts. Boeing, along with other multinational companies, cites regulatory changes and currency fluctuations as risks. In developing nations, the lack of relevant laws, or the presence of new and untested laws, can also be an issue.Dont let the risks listed in 10-Ks make you want to avoid investing in any company. Every company faces risks. They shouldnt scare you away, but do consider them. Also, know that companies can manage many of their risks, such as via insurance, or by locking in currency rates or commodity prices via futures contracts. ***QWhats an uptick?

In celebration of the upcoming holiday, in what we hope is the mother of all Mothers Day articles, we present our irreverent look at some well-known moms. Mother Mother was the code name for a top government official in the 1960s British TV series The Avengers. Played by actor Patrick Newell, Mother was a stout man with a tidy moustache who, from his wheelchair, issued orders to secret agents John Steed and Emma Peel (and later, Tara King). His secret headquarters changed constantly and included a double-decker bus and, one time, an underwater hideaway. Second in command to Mother was an official called Father who was a woman.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 7-13, 2015 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS Naked beneath our armor My friend Adam and I have been talking about armor. Not the knight-inshining kind. Not the Kevlar version. But the emotional armor each of us slips on at the beginning of the day and strips off just before we go to sleep. And sometimes, truthfully, not even then. Adams armor is all about prestige and class. He wraps his fancy diplomas around himself and trusses his image in awards and recognitions. When hes nervous or insecure or in any way doubting himself, he brandishes his good breeding like a shield. I watch him do this, and I imagine the wall of thorns surrounding Sleeping Beautys castle. Hes impossible to breach. And your armor? he asked me recently. What do you do to keep people away? We were sitting in a cafe drinking overpriced tea. I wore this fierce red lipstick Ive taken to lately, and Id lined my eyes in black liner. I had my hair pulled back in a slick bun. My jeans were tight, my jacket fitted. Everything about me spoke of order and discipline. I guess its my appearance, I said. I use how I look as my armor. Funny, because just last year I told a friend she should put less effort into her appearance. Her beauty is her armor, and she keeps people away with her glossy hair and meticulously applied make-up. Your heart is the loveliest thing about you, Id told her. Let people see that first. Me? Im not after beauty. Its infallibility Im chasing. When people look at me, I dont want them to see any chinks in my armor. I want them to think nothing gets through. Least of all, vulnerability. This woman in the red lipstick and heavy mascara is invincible. She cannot be hurt. Of course, our armor is simply a distancing mechanism. Rather than protecting us, it serves to hide the best and brightest parts of our selves. Adam is one of the most lovable people Ive ever met. Hes brilliant and funny, and his mind works in strange, captivating ways. But most people never see that. I had to chop through a lot of thorns to get there, and the majority of people who meet him wont put in that kind of work. Its too bad for them, but mostly too bad for Adam. Which makes me wonder why we do this to ourselves. In a world where everyone is desperate for relationships, why do we make it so damn hard for people to love us? I suppose its because were afraid. Afraid of being exposed. Afraid of being judged. Afraid of making ourselves vulnerable and still not being loved. Yet love is fueled by courage. In order to get to the real thing, the true thing, we have to be willing to expose ourselves. We must drop the armor and stand emotionally naked. Its terrifying. Trust me, I know. Thats why I dont do it a lot. But Im working on shedding some of these layers, and I hope you will, too. Perhaps then we can stand together in our exquisite fallibility.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 7-13, 2015 litter her land. We poison her air. We make her polar icecaps melt and then deny the existence of global warming. We strip her forests bare, including her rain forests, and strip mine her land for our own material gain. This is so much worse than neglecting to call home on a regular basis. Mother Nature Actress Dena Dietrich starred as Mother Nature in the iconic Chiffon Margarine television commercials of the 1970s. Dressed in a gauzy white gown and with a crown of daisies in her hair, shes offered a taste of Chiffon and declares it butter. But an unseen narrator tells her it isnt. Chiffons so delicious, it fooled even you, Mother Nature, the voice says. Obviously unhappy, she sweetly says the famous tagline, Its not nice to fool Mother Nature, and displays her displeasure by summoning a sudden and wicked thunderstorm. (Ms. Dietrich also appeared in various TV shows, including The Golden Girls as Dorothys sister, Gloria.) Big Mama Thornton Before Elvis, before Janis Joplin, there was Big Mama Thornton. A blues singer with a deep, strong voice, she had a No. 1 hit in 1952 with Hound Dog (years before, and with a grittier, sexier sound, than Elvis) and recorded Ball and Chain (which she wrote) before Janis. Big Mama had a voice that could knock you into next week. Her father was a minister, and she incorporated gospel musics calland-response into her blues singing. A gay woman, she often wore mens clothing onstage. She performed at the Monterey Jazz Festival and toured Europe in 1965 with the American Folk Blues Festival, along with musicians such as John Lee Hooker and Buddy Guy. The Mamas and the Papas This 1960s pop group known for tight four-part harmonies on such infectious hits as California Dreamin, I Saw Her Again and Monday, Monday consisted of two women and two men. The women, Mama Cass Elliot and Mama Michelle Phillips, were mothers in real life. (Papa John Phillips and Papa Denny Doherty were both fathers, too.) A 2007 article in Vanity Fair called them the first rich hippies and said they got their name when Mama Cass turned on the TV and saw a biker gang calling their women mamas. Moms Mabley Stand-up comedian Moms Mabley was often seen on The Ed Sullivan Show and The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, though earlier in life she played the Chitlin circuit. (She was said to be the first woman comedian to play the Apollo Theater in Harlem.) Later in her career, she played Carnegie Hall. On stage, shed wear a loose housedress, knit hat and floppy shoes; offstage, she favored mens clothes and suits and was called Mr. Mom by her friends. Perhaps her most famous line was: There aint nothing an old man can do for me but bring me a message from a young one. She also performed at Sing Sing Prison, where she presented the warden a collection of her comedy albums and slyly suggested he go home, listen to them and just laugh yourself to death, which the inmates loved. Moms Mabley also appeared in a number of movies, including The Emperor Jones, Killer Diller and Boarding House Blues. Her serious and heart-breaking version of Abraham, Martin and John hit No. 35 on the Hot 100 in the summer of 1969. In 2013, Moms Mabley: I Got Somethin to Tell You, an HBO documentary by Whoopi Goldberg, was nominated for two Emmys and introduced the pioneering comedian to a new generation. Mother Teresa Mother Teresa founded the Missionaries of Charity, which helped the poor and dying in 133 countries. Shes especially known for her work in Calcutta, where she and her fellow nuns assisted the very poorest of the poor. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979, for the work undertaken in the struggle to overcome poverty and distress, which also constitutes a threat to peace. When asked, What can we do to promote world peace? she said, Go home and love your family. Ave Maria University in Southwest Florida has a 3,000-square-foot exhibition hall devoted to Mother Teresa. The Mother of Invention Necessity. The Mothers of Invention Frank Zappas band started out as The Soul Giants and then (on Mothers Day of all things) changed its name to The Mothers. Pressure from the record label led to The Mothers of Invention. The group is said to have produced rock n rolls second double album, Freak Out! (1966). A rock band on a jazz label, it was known for its musical experimentation. Rolling Stone named Zappa No. 71 of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time and No. 22 of the 100 Greatest Guitarists. He famously named his children Moon Unit, Dweezil, Ahmet and Diva Muffin. (Moon Zappa can be heard on his top 40 hit Valley Girl.) Mother Jones Mother Jones was a labor and community organizer who co-founded the Industrial Workers of the World. She helped coordinate major strikes and advocated for miners. A West Virginia district attorney once called her the most dangerous woman in America because she organized striking miners. She famously led a childrens march from Pennsylvania to President Theodore Roosevelts home in New York to protest the lax enforcement of the child labor laws in mines and silk mills. A teacher and dressmaker, she had four children, but they all died, along with her husband, of yellow fever. She later lost her dress shop in the Great Chicago Fire and then became an organizer. The magazine Mother Jones known for its muckracking journalism, is named after her. Mothertrucker This male band from Birmingham, UK, plays music that sounds like ambient music or Philip Glass mixed with industrial music (some call it British stoner music). Its most recent release is called The Power of Independent Trucking (2014). The Mother Truckers The Mother Truckers, an all-girl band from Hounslow, UK, released a selftitled album in 1975. It also had a single called Tonight and another called Love in Them There Hills. The British girls arent the only band called The Mother Truckers. Theres an American mixed-gender band by the same name from Austin, Texas, that performs a raucous mixture of country, blues and rock. Its bio calls it a kickass rock n roll band that plays highoctane Americana. Ma Rainey Known as The Mother of the Blues, Ma Rainey is said to be the first popular stage entertainer to incorporate authentic blues into her song repertoire. She started recording blues songs for Paramount label in 1923, recording such songs as Bo-Weevil Blues, Moonshine Blues, Jelly Roll Blues and, with Louis Armstrong, Yonder Comes the Blues. She was the first person to record See See Rider. She inspired many other singers, including Bessie Smith, Big Mama Thornton and Dinah Washington. Born Gertrude Pridgett, she became Ma Rainey when she married Will Pa Rainey in 1904. Poems have been written about her, August Wilson wrote a Tony-nominated play about her (Ma Raineys Black Bottom, named after the dance craze she helped create), and in 1994, the U.S. Post Office put her image on a 29-cent stamp. Ma Bell The nickname given to the Bell System of telephone companies was possibly inspired by the recorded female operator voices. Mother Russia Also affectionately referred to by Soviets as The Motherland. Land of vodka, bears, brooding, fur hats, Siberia, long lines and even longer novels with casts of millions, in which characters are often called by multiple, difficult-toremember names. Zap Mama Zap Mama is a musical group headed by Marie Daulne, who had a Belgian father and Congolese mother. Over the years, its members have changed and its musical style evolved. Zap Mama began as an ensemble of female polyphonic singers who performed a cappella, a fusion of African Congolese sounds with European choral traditions. Its earliest albums were Adventures in Afropea 1 (the top seller for world music, according to Billboard magazine) and Sabsylma (which earned a Grammy nomination). Later albums included male musicians and vocalists. Zap Mamas most recent album, ReCreation in 2009, includes collaborations with artists such as G. Love and Bilal and was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding World Music Album. Sophie Tucker, the Last of the Red Hot Mamas Singer, comedian, actress and radio personality Sophie Tucker was known by her nickname, The Last of the Red Hot Mamas. Many of her tunes were comical and risqu, and her performances were spiced with bawdy wisecracks and banter. According to connecticuthistory. org, she complained about censorship, saying, I couldnt even say hell or damn and nothing, honey, is more expressive than the way I say hell or damn. She influenced performers such as Mae West, Totie Fields and Ethel Merman, as well as Bette Midler, whod include Soph as one of her on-stage characters and reportedly named her daughter Sophie after the performer. She was the inspiration for Matron Mama Morton in Chicago: the Musical, who sings When Youre Good to Mama. In 2000, Florida Studio Theatre in Sarasota developed a revue called Sophie Tucker: The Last of the Red Hot Mamas, a one-woman show with Kathy Halenda, which toured New York, Chicago, Atlanta and Toronto. It also played in the Daniels Pavilion of Artis Naples. MOMFrom page 1 MABLEY JONES RAINEY DIETRICH TUCKER THORNTON COURTESY PHOTOThe Mamas and the Papas performing on The Ed Sullivan Show.

Review us on THE NAPLES PLAYERS PRESENT FLORIDA WRITERSAtlanta Child Murders reimagined in brilliant crime novel Innocent Blood by Michael Lister. Pulpwood Press. 264 pages. Hardcover, $26.99.Michael Listers seventh John Jordan Mystery takes an unusual step. Instead of moving readers forward on the path of Johns life, it takes them back to his very first case. In fact, this tale takes readers back in time twice. First, to 1980 when the Jordan family went on a vacation to Atlanta. John, 12 at the time, was fated to encounter the man who was later convicted of two murders (though not the murders or abduction of the many black boys who were thought to be his victims). John had seen and interacted with Wayne Williams, but he didnt make the connection until many months later, when the print and television news was filled with the story of Mr. Williams arrest. The man he met was hawking opportunities for gullible youngsters to become professional entertainers. Of course, this was not at all the goal of the menacing Mr. Williams. The Atlanta Child Murders continued to occupy Atlanta police, and they continued to occupy space in young Johns imagination. Six years later, soon after graduation from high school, John Jordan returns to Atlanta. Having been torn between pursuing a career in law enforcement or one in the ministry, he opted to enroll in a new ministerial program at the Earl Paulk Institute. This decision was a difficult one that severed Johns relationship with his police chief father, who thought John was making a foolish mistake. While working for the institute and its parent church, John manages to attach himself to policemen who had worked on the Atlanta Child Murders, including the man in charge of the investigation. Johns obsessive interest and his obvious analytical skills lead them to allow him a role in the continuing investigation, which has been reignited by similar crimes. This is exactly what John has hoped for. There are just too many unclosed cases with similar details, and yet it seems unlikely that Mr. Williams could have been responsible for all of them. The community John has entered includes Safe Haven, a daycare and aftercare center run by Ida Williams (no relation to Wayne) near the church.

Dinner ShowDoors Open at 6:30 p.m. Show Starts at 7:15 p.m.2 FOR $40 but he was never put on the list headed Atlanta Child Murders even though his death occurred during that time period. Like John at that time, LaMarcus was 12 years old. John now meets the beautiful Jordan Williams, Idas daughter, who becomes the new love of his life, but she is stuck in a bad marriage. Regularly beaten by her husband, a local policeman, she has her eyes on John, and she appreciates his tentative attentions. After establishing the key players, the author focuses on Johns exhausting attempt to balance his college studies, his work commitments that are in lieu of tuition and his unswerving pursuit of the unsolved murders. Still only a kid himself, John impresses people with his maturity, compassion and insight. He seems to know what questions need to be pursued. John is allowed to review evidence that has never added up to anything; remarkably, he often sees connections and possibilities that havent been noticed by the professionals. Mr. Lister hooks the reader with his compelling portrait of community life, his detailed handling of how John sharpens his investigatory skills, a series of menacing events revealing that his efforts are putting him and others in danger, Johns battle with alcoholism and his growing romance with Jordan (who playfully announces that if they marry, she will not be called Jordan Jordan). John also becomes a kind of big brother to some of the kids at Safe Haven, and the author makes these relationships sweetly appealing. Hey, just because a man wants to hang around with young boys doesnt make him a pervert or murder suspect. Innocent Blood is a beautifully constructed story, cleanly and often poetically written. The carefully nuanced development of Johns moral sensibility and intellectual fortitude is highly appealing. Graced by an introduction from Michael Connelly that offers persuasive praise (and even includes a conversation between John and Mr. Connellys classic detective character Harry Bosch), this preamble to the John Jordan Mystery series is good news for mystery fans who appreciate fine writing and creative risk taking. Michael Lister doesnt play it safe. 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.

Limited appointments available. ARTS COMMENTARYShes refined, hes a jerk. Can this relationship work?Its easy to fall into a rut. We do the same things we always do, go to the same places we always go to, talk to the same people we always talk with about the same old things. Life plays out like the movie Groundhog Day, where each day is a mindnumbing repeat of the day before. Ralph knows what thats like; hes been a widower for 12 years. But one day, he decides to walk down a different street. He discovers a small dog park, and there, spies a beautiful woman: Carol. He returns the following day and introduces himself. And so begins The Last Romance at the Sugden Community Theatre. Victor Caroli plays the romantic but blunt 80-year-old Ralph. Hes such a jerk in the beginning, you dont even want him to get together with Carol. He strikes a pose. He lies. Hes rude. Carol (Carole Fenstermacher) is understandably leery. Ralph lies about having a dog. He also lies by omitting important facts about himself. This is a touching but humorous play about the choices we face in our twilight years. Will we engage with life wholeheartedly, or will we just stop and settle? The decisions Ralph and Carol make might surprise you. These two are excellent actors, and its wonderful to see a juicy play that gives romantic leads to mature actors. And its certainly something Naples audiences can relate to. (There was much laughter of recognition when a character talks about how every day is the same: eating at the same time, watching Jeopardy and then going to bed at the same time every night. Apparently, hes just described their life.) But I was frustrated by the tone of the piece. Director Michael Scanlan seems to think its all broad humor, totally missing the pathos. This play is much more moving than how its played in this production. Mr. Scanlan just seems to go for the easy laughs, giving us funny people with funny accents rather than complex people in funny situations. Mr. Caroli is a much better actor, capable of great nuance, as is Janina Birtolo, who plays his younger sister, Rose. But it seems theyve been directed to play their characters as TV sit-com stereotypes; theyre doing schtick, not portraying real people. Playwright Joe DiPietros script is, admittedly, light. But theres room for so much more here, and this missed opportunity is a shame. Ralph is played as kind of a doofus. He has a passion for opera, but comes across so shallow, so one-dimensional, you wonder how he can sing with any real depth. (Michael Fratz competently provides the plays singing scenes, as a stand-in for a young Ralph.) Ms. Birtolos Rose is a bitter woman who nags and clings to her brother. Its difficult to have empathy for her. On opening night, Ms. Birtolos accent also changed from Act I to Act II. For the entire first half, for some reason, she pronounced her rs as ws, which is not a New York or Italian accent. She was so entertaining as Dottie in The Naples Players earlier production of Good People, but this director does not make the best use of her talents. Ms. Fenstermacher is superb in her role, sophisticated and elegant. She blossoms and grows as the play progresses, facing her fears and engaging with life. In some scenes, she is absolutely giddy and girlish, and her transformation is just wonderful to watch. Shes lonely, and, like Ralph, longs for some romance and companionship. Its nice to see a play that acknowledges that those feelings dont disappear with age. I just wish this production werent so flawed. Todd Potters two-leveled set is, unfortunately, nondescript and static. Hes placed stone steps smack in the middle and made everything perfectly symmetrical: two hedges, two benches, etc. Perhaps hes trying to make a statement that everything in the world is paired off and has its companion, but it makes for a boring set. And maybe it was just me, but when actors stood behind one of the green hedges to sing, or read a letter out loud, they looked like people on the stage of a mega-church, something youd see on televised worship service. Mary Wallaces costumes were especially wonderful for Ms. Fenstermacher, displaying her as a wealthy woman with refined, understated taste. Cody, who plays Peaches, Carols dog, doesnt have much stage time, which is perhaps just as well, as he would steal the show. The Last Romance is presented as a love story late in life. But its really a play about the choices we make, and whether we cling to old, familiar things or take risks, no matter what our chronological age. If its a love story, its a love story about loving yourself so much youre not willing to settle. Its about falling in love with your own life. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com The Last Romance>> Who: The Naples Players >> When: Through May 16 >> Where: The Sugden Community Theatre, Naples >> Cost: $35 ($10 for students 21 and younger) >> Info: 263-7990 or naplesplayers.org BOB KELLY / COURTESY PHOTOCarole Fenstermacher, left, and Victor Caroli as Carol and Ralph in The Last Romance.

In front: Melissa Archer (Natalie Buchanan, One Life to Live and Serena Days of Our Lives), and John Driscoll (Coop Bradshaw, Guiding Light and Chance Chancellor, The Young and the Restless)Paevey (Nathan West, The Young and the Restless). The weekend will be packed with a variety of events, from karaoke night to an auction of artwork created by the soap stars and local special needs children. They just have a fun setup, Ms. Archer says about the festival. Painting with the kids is always fun. It makes me feel really good, and I think the kids enjoy it. Originally conceived as a fundraiser for the Marco Island Film Festival, Soapfest has evolved since 2004 as a fundraiser for local children with developmental disabilities. This years beneficiaries are Camp Able, a summer camp for children with special needs, and the childrens programs at Island Theatre Company on Marco. The actors are wonderful, Soapfest organizer Pat Berry says. There are so many reasons for them to come. Some of them have a passion for the kids and charities. I have one actor coming whose sibling has autism they have different reasons for supporting this event. The fans, too, are great, Ms. Berry adds. A lot of them have been watching these shows for years and years. Soapfest has gained enough of a following and reputation over the years that volunteers and fans arrive from all over the country, and sometimes other countries, to lend a hand and ensure that the actors and guests have a memorable weekend. Theyre coming to support the cause, Ms. Berry said. They drive here, they fly here and they do it every year. Now theyve been doing it so long its like a reunion of volunteers every year. Susan Scholl, a daycare provider from Covington, La., has been attending Marco Islands event since 2010. She started attending soap festivals 10 years ago because they were great places to meet people with a common interest. Ive made friends with people from all different places, she says. Her favorite soaps are One Life to Live and General Hospital, but throughout her life she has watched all the shows at one point or another. Like many fans, she was brought up with her mother watching longstanding CBS dramas Guiding Light and One Life to Live. Now her favorite programs air when Ms. Scholl is at work, so she relies on two DVRs and Hulu to stay up to date, catching up on the weeks stories at night and on the weekends. Boise, Idaho, resident Debbie Daniels has been volunteering at Soapfest almost since the beginning and looks forward to coming back this year to lend a hand. Her mother, Mary Mayo, discovered the festival many years ago in Soap Opera Digest, and the two have been returning ever since. The island is so beautiful and so welcoming, but the people add so much to it, Ms. Daniels says. Its such a great experience. I think what really makes my heart warm is how much my mom enjoys it. She gets autographs and takes them back to her quilting club in Idaho. It makes me feel good that my mom is so excited about it. Though her mother is a lifelong fan of soap operas, Ms. Daniels viewership began when she started accompanying her mother to Marco Island. Now she enjoys occasionally watching The Young and the Restless and General Hospital. Ms. Mayo, on the other hand, takes extra measures to keep up with storylines. She has a VCR and records and watches General Hospital all at once, Ms. Daniels says. This years Soapfest events include a welcome party Friday evening, May 22, A Night of Stars Saturday evening, May 23, at Bistro Soleil; Cruisin, Boozin & Schmoozin Sunday afternoon, May 24, aboard the Marco Island Princess; and Brunch with the Boys on Monday, May 25. Tickets for the various events range from $75 to $200. A full schedule and ticket prices can be found at theatreonmarco.com. For more information, visit the website or call Ms. Berry at 394-0080.

Of course you are. So get out there and give your supporters the facts they need to get the truth out. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A changing situation should get you to reassess your vacation plans and make any adjustments as soon as possible. And dont fret -the change most likely will turn out for the better. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Dont put off dealing with any negative feelings that might be left over from a recent confrontation. The sooner all is resolved, the sooner you can move forward with fewer complications. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Leos and Leonas might feel the urge to redecorate their dens, and that can turn into a good opportunity to strengthen family ties by putting the whole pride to work to make it happen. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Look for the most efficient way to get a job done quickly and well. Taking more time than you need to make it look more challenging is a short-sighted move you might regret later on. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Travel remains strong in your aspect. And this time, it could involve someone traveling a great distance to come to see you. Meanwhile, an important matter suddenly could need your attention. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A workplace situation becomes a lot more bothersome than youd expected. Be careful not to be pulled into all that anger. Look for support among others who also want to avoid trouble. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Cheer up, lonely lovers, wherever you are. Just when you thought youd been deleted from Cupids database, the chubby cherub proves thats just not so. Congratulations. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A casual relationship could take a more serious turn. Are you ready for it? Your stars say you are. Paired Sea Goats also will find a renewed richness in their relationships. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Meeting a collaborator with new ideas seems to be a dream come true. But for both your sakes, be sure all your legal is are dotted and ts are crossed before you start working together. PISCES (February 19 to March 21) A romantic overture flatters the usually unflappable Fish. But since its a sincere from-the-heart gesture, go ahead and enjoy it. A minor health problem responds well to treatment. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might be a bit shaken by a friends request. But before the Lamb leaps to conclusions, insist on a full explanation. You still might say no, but at least youll know what youre saying no to. BORN THIS WEEK: You have the warm heart of a Taurean and the sensitivity of a Gemini. You would make a wonderful leader. So go ahead: Run for office. PUZZLES

Take this case where youre in six diamonds and West leads a heart. You win with the ace, expecting to make all the tricks, but when you play the A-K of trumps, West shows out, and you realize that even the small slam is now in danger. All is not yet lost, however, since East might have to follow suit when you next play the K-Q-10 of spades. If he does, you can discard a heart on the fourth round of spades and so make the slam. Unfortunately, East ruffs the third spade and cashes a heart, and down you go. This is certainly an unlucky result, since the trumps could have been divided 3-2, or East might have had the simple decency to hold three or more spades. Nevertheless, the fact is that the contract might have come home with a slight variation in the play. After the 4-1 division is revealed, the best approach is to cash the king of spades and then lead the ten to the ace. When you next continue with the nine, it becomes far from easy for East to ruff, as he might think West has the queen. East might well decide to discard a club on the spade lead from dummy, thinking you might have started with something like: [S] K10 [H] 103 [D] AKQ542 [C] Q97 In that case, he would hand you the slam by ruffing the nine but would defeat you by discarding on it. If he does discard, you can then make the slam after scoring the queen of spades by crossing to dummy with a club and discarding a heart on the jack of spades. Your conscience might bother you for having stolen a slam you were not entitled to make, but the 1,390 points you enter in your column should dispel those feelings very quickly.

Trudy Labell Fine Art :: Bigham Galleria 2425 Tamiami Trail North, Naples, FL 34103 Beginning this summer, we very much look forward to assisting, advising and acquiring art for co llectors, designers and galleries via private professional art consultations. We operated as private art consultants with great success for 22 years in New England and are excited about the opportunity of offering our personalized services here in Southwest Florida. FILM CAPSULESClouds of Sils Maria (Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart, Chloe Grace Moretz) A personal assistant (Ms. Stewart) helps a successful actress (Ms. Binoche) prepare for a challenging role. The acting is superb (especially Ms. Stewart, who continues to prove shes much better than anything the awful Twilight allowed her to be), and the story is dense with symbolism. Rated R.The Water Diviner (Russell Crowe, Olga Kurylenko, Jai Courtney) In 1919, an Australian farmer (Mr. Crowe) travels to Gallipoli, Turkey, to retrieve the remains of his three sons, whore presumed killed during World War I. The story has an epic feel but only mediocre execution. Rated R.Ex Machina (Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac, Alicia Vikander) An aspiring computer programmer (Mr. Gleeson) joins his boss (Mr. Isaac) at an isolated research facility and tests the conscientiousness of a robot named Ava (Ms. Vikander). It is smart, futuristic sci-fi thatll get you thinking and encourage conversation afterward. Rated R.Monkey Kingdom 1/2(Narrated by Tina Fey) Cute sy Disneynature documentary follows the adventures of a tribe of monkeys in Sri Lanka over the course of a few years. It has some amusing moments for kids younger than 10 to enjoy, but it offers little to adults. Rated G.Beyond The Reach 1/2(Michael Douglas, Jeremy Irvine, Ronny Cox) Professional search-and-rescue tracker Ben (Mr. Irvine) takes a trigger-happy millionaire (Mr. Douglas) into the New Mexico desert to hunt game, but things get complicated when a man is accidentally shot. The characters actions are so illogical its difficult to sit through. Rated R.While Were Young (Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver) Married and in a funk, Josh (Mr. Stiller) and Cornelia (Ms. Watts) befriend young hipsters Jamie (Mr. Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried), who teach them how to be loose and free but arent all theyre cracked up to be. Writer/director Noah Baumbach seems to want to say something about the values we hold at different stages of our lives, but he never has the guts to say it. What a letdown. Rated R.Run All Night (Liam Neeson, Joel Kinnaman, Ed Harris) Mob boss Sean (Mr. Harris) and his hit man Jimmy (Mr. Neeson) are old friends, but all that changes when Jimmy is forced to kill Seans son (Boyd Holbrook). Its a tense drama with solid action and performances. Rated R.Furious 7 (Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jason Statham) Deckard Shaw (Mr. Statham) seeks revenge on Dom (Mr. Diesel) and his crew after they crippled Shaws brother Owen (Luke Evans) in Fast & Furious 6. The storys a bit convoluted, but who cares? The action is fast and fun, making this a pure adrenaline rush. Rated PG-13. Woman in Gold (Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Bruhl) A Holocaust survivor (Ms. Mirren) asks an unproven lawyer (Mr. Reynolds) to help retrieve a painting she believes belongs to her; years ago it was seized by the Nazis, and it is now in the possession of the Austrian government. The main storyline of the quest for the painting is a fascinating watch, but flashbacks to Holocaust Austria are a bore. Rated PG-13.Get Hard (Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Alison Brie) Millionaire financial manager James King (Mr. Ferrell) has 30 days to learn how to survive in prison from Darnell (Mr. Hart). Mr. Ferrell and Mr. Hart lack chemistry, and the story is as predictable as they come. Rated R.Home (Voices of Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez) Alien Oh (Mr. Parson) comes to Earth and clumsily helps a girl (Rihanna) find her displaced mother (Ms. Lopez). Theres nothing special about the animation, its not all that funny and theres not much here for adults.

Yes!How do you improve on the third highest-grossing movie of all time? Writer/director Joss Whedon made it perfectly clear: Avengers: Age of Ultron had to take the best moments of The Avengers (2012), which grossed $1.5 billion worldwide, and do something else with them. Its as simple as that. Right. With an estimated $250 million budget, Ultron has more than 3,000 visual effects shots (the most ever for a Marvel Studios film, trumping the 2,750 of Guardians of the Galaxy), a layered story geared toward comic book geeks and some splendid interplay between the characters. Its a worthy addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which will not end until at least May 2019 when the Avengers reunite in Avengers: Infinity War Part II (part one of Infinity War is set for a May 2018 release). But lets not get ahead of ourselves. Mr. Whedon knows what we want Hulk smash action excitement! and doesnt hesitate to give it to us. The opening sequence set in snowy mountains is a barrage of high-impact kills and death-defying risk, all so Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) can retrieve Lokis scepter, which was stolen by Baron Von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann), Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014). The mission is a success, but Tony is tiring of peril. With the help of Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), he plans to use the Barons advanced robotics equipment to create an Ultron device that would effectively put a suit of armor around the world. Nice try, Tony. The evil of Lokis scepter and the Barons experiments taint Ultron (menacingly voiced by James Spader), meaning Tony has created an extraordinarily powerful artificial intelligence that wants to wipe out the Avengers. Ultron, who has the fast-moving Quicksilver and telekinetic Scarlet Witch by his side, believes he can save the world by destroying it. Naturally, Iron Man, Hulk, Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Captain America (Chris Evans) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) dont take kindly to the thought of their extinction. Amid the grand action, smaller moments delight: Iron Man and Captain America bicker about foul language; we peek into Hawkeyes personal life; Iron Man and Thor discuss their girlfriends neither Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts) nor Natalie Portman (Jane Foster) appear, respectively; and Black Widow develops a crush on Bruce Banner. And when theyre all together, its even better: In one of the films best scenes, each Avenger takes a turn at trying to lift Thors hammer and fails miserably. Its the spectacle of it all that counts, though, and Age of Ultron puts on a grand show. Captain Americas shield is whipped around like a Frisbee, sometimes batted by Thors hammer and often used to slice off the heads of villainous robots. When slow-motion is used to show all the Avengers in action at the same time, when Iron Man dons the Hulkbuster suit when the Hulk is out of control and, best of all, when the team works in unison to achieve its goals, the film is an absolute treat. Theres action on the ground, in the air, on a train and all over the world. Your eyes will surely be smiling. Is it as good as The Avengers? No. It lacks the novelty that made its predecessor special. Still, Avengers: Age of Ultron is well thought-out, dynamic and engaging, which is exactly what it needs to be. The summer movie season is officially off to a fine start. >> In the Marvel Comics, Ultron is created by Dr. Hank Pym, not Tony Stark. Pym (played by Michael Douglas) will appear as the creator of Ant-Man opposite Paul Rudds title character in Ant-Man, due out July 17. >> In Age of Ultron Idris Elba, Hayley Atwell, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Stellan Skarsgard, Paul Bettany, Andy Serkis and Stan Lee appear in small roles. The names should be familiar to those who know the Marvel Cinematic Universe media franchise. c A b b H dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com Special promotions valid until 5/31/15 only, and may not be combined.

How does it work? Magicians never tell the secrets of their trade. But the secret of the mystery clock, first made in the 1860s, has been exposed. The most famous mystery clock had a figure, often a goddess, who held a long pendulum that swung for no obvious reason. She stood on a circular base with a platform. The platform moved slightly, making the pendulum swing and the clock hands move to tell the time. A different type of mystery clock was made in the 20th century. It was very popular from the 1950s to the 1980s. A normal-looking circular face that was secretly made of four glass discs was set in a modern looking case, usually rectangular. The hands were glued to the discs. The numbers for the hours were on a band on the case that went around the glass, so the hands seem to float on the glass while keeping the time. Many of these clocks were made with gold and jewels and sold for high prices. Ceres, the goddess of agriculture, is featured in a mystery clock that sold late in November 2014 for $5,843. She is holding a ballshaped black clock suspended on chains from her left hand. The round black clock has raised Roman numerals, and it furnishes the necessary rotation. Q: I have an old 20-inch toy Army truck by Buddy L. It was given to my brother in 1940. The truck has a green metal body, a canvas cover and rubber wheels. The side door is embossed with Buddy L. The truck is in good condition. What is it worth? A: Your Army transport truck with the Buddy L bar and circle logo embossed on the door was made from 1939 to 1940. The truck was sold alone or with a trailer. Its worth $90 to $175, depending on its condition. The Buddy L company goes back to the Moline Pressed Steel Co. that was started by Fred A. Lundahl in 1913 in Moline, Ill. His son, Arthur Brown Lundahl, was born in 1915 and nicknamed Buddy. Another boy named Buddy lived in their neighborhood, and to avoid confusion, Buddy Lundahl was called Buddy L. His fathers company began making toys under the name, Buddy L in 1921. Buddy L toys still are being made. Q: I have a delicate blue and gold cup and saucer with flowers that is marked Dresden, Saxony along with an animal that looks like a calf. Id love it if you could give me some information about it. A: The mark on your cup and saucer was used by Ambrosius Lamm, a decorator who opened a studio in Dresden, Germany, in 1887. He decorated porcelain made by the famous manufacturers in the nearby town of Meissen. His mark shows a lamb over the word Dresden. The word Saxony was added in 1915 and used until about 1934, when the mark was changed to say Made in Saxony. That is when your cup and saucer were made. When Lamm retired in 1934, his daughter took over the business and continued to operate it until 1949. The fancy blue and gold decoration on your cup and saucer suggests the set is worth $100 to $150. Q: I have six luncheon plates and six cups and saucers marked on the bottom Designed for Pan Am above an oval mark for Bauscher Weiden, Bavaria, Germany. They are solid

PAGE 65

white with a gold border and are surprisingly sturdy. Do they have any value, or should I just give them to my granddaughter for her kitchen play? A: Pan American Airlines was in business from 1927 until 1991. Early Pan Am planes had dining rooms, where passengers dined at tables set with china plates, silverware, and real glassware, not plastic. Dinnerware was made especially for Pan Am by several different manufacturers from the 1930s to the 1980s. Airline china, like railroad china, and other restaurant ware, is heavier, making it less likely to break with constant use. Your dishes are the Gold Rim pattern originally made by Noritake in Japan in the early 1970s. Later, the same pattern was made by Bauscher Weiden. Another white pattern, with a wavy border design, was made for Pan Am by Bauscher Weiden beginning in 1986. Six place sets like yours might auction for $150 to $250 depending on where and when it is sold. It will sell best at an auction with other airplane collectibles. Tip: If your dark furniture has a scratch, you can make it less obvious by rubbing half a shelled walnut on it. This will stain the light scratch mark.

Netflix the monthly subscription online network that has brought us such masterpieces as House of Cards, Bloodline and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has confirmed that it is indeed resurrecting the schlocky sitcom (which originally ran on ABC from 1987-95). The new incarnation will be 13 episodes and is named Fuller House. According to TV Line: Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber are set to star, reprising their roles as D.J. Tanner-Fuller, Stephanie Tanner and Kimmy Gibbler, while John Stamos will serve as a producer and guest-star as Uncle Jesse. In the continuation, due to debut in 2016, veterinarian D.J. is pregnant and recently widowed, and living in San Francisco. Her younger sister, aspiring musician Stephanie, and lifelong best friend/fellow single mom Kimmy, along with Kimmys feisty teenage daughter Ramona, all move in to help take care of D.J.s two boys rebellious 12-yearold J.D. and neurotic 7-year-old Max and her soon-to-arrive baby. Discussions with Bob Saget, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin regarding guest appearances are ongoing. In other Full House news, it was revealed that Lifetime, the network that brought us The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story is busy creating The Unauthorized Full House Story. The movie will cover the rise of the cast and behind-the-scenes goings-on during the shows eight-year run. Ron McGee, who wrote the Saved By the Bell Story, is set to write the Full House Story. Q: While I am excited to hear all the talk about The X-Files reboot, whatever happened with that drama series about the Zodiac Killer that David Duchovny was supposed to star in? I remember you wrote about it a while ago, and Ive heard nothing since. Danny T., via emailA: Youve got it half-right, Danny. The series youre referring to is called Aquarius, and it is about Charles Manson, not the unnamed Zodiac Killer. In Aquarius, which debuts on NBC May 28 at 9 p.m., Duchovny plays Sgt. Sam Hodiak, a decorated World War II veteran who returns to Los Angeles and becomes a homicide detective. The events take place in 1967, two years before Charles Manson and his family commit the Tate-LaBianca murders, and catalogs the events leading up to the horrific crime.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 7-13, 2015 C25 THE DISHThe Dish: Pineapple Kimchi Dumplings The Price: $9 The Place: The Cider Press Caf 1201 Piper Blvd., Naples; 631-2500 The Hours: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday The Full Menu: ciderpresscafe.com. The Details: Monday afternoon found me suffering from a killer head cold and travel hangover Id had too little sleep and not enough nutrition to put up a good fight. To rectify both problems, I headed out to The Cider Press Caf to avail myself of the innovative vegan menu and to mainline some vitamins into my tragically depleted system. A halforder of Pineapple Kimchi Dumplings provided me with a clean and cool lunch that pierced through my head fog and re-energized me for a few hours, while the mango habanero sauce sliced through my sinuses and sparked sensations that had been missing for a few days. Besides alleviating my symptoms, the dumplings were very good and definitely worth ordering again. I tend to avoid vegan food, but maybe I should just let professionals prepare it instead of my crunchy and well-intentioned friends. One More Thing: To accompany my dumplings, I ordered a cup of Seminole Corn Chowder with sweet corn, coconut, cashew buttercr eam, pico de gallo and cilantro. I was a little shocked when, after preparing for a steamy, creamy bite, it was served cold. And then I realized that cold is awesome, especially when combined with the picos acidity and the sweetness of corn and coconut. I was sorry to see the bottom of the bowl.

Serious flavor.@ Happening agavenaples /AgaveNaples AgaveNaples NaplesAgave # The perfect complement to our big flavors. VINOThe mad, nontraditional blender of Napa ValleyAs I may have mentioned before, one of the things I like best about the world of wine is that you can divide it in half in a number of ways. Old World and New World. Reds and whites. Still and sparkling. One other way to split things up is by wines that are 100 percent somethingorother, and wines that are blended. If youre a blended wine fan, then Orin Swift is the winery for you. But first, a caution. A lot of wines are blended, even though that fact is not disclosed on the label. For example, if you buy a bottle that says Cabernet Sauvignon in nice big letters, the law (at least in the U.S.) specifies that 85 percent of the grapes used must be the named varietal. The other 15 percent can be merlot, some white wine, chocolate milk, whatever. They dont have to tell you. Staying with this example, merlot is customarily blended with cabernet sauvignon to make it a bit softer and more approachable when its young. But you might never know it by reading the label. Similarly, its common for Australian winemakers to put about 5 percent Viognier (a white wine) into their shiraz, for a variety of reasons. But thats not the kind of blending were talking about here. Many regions of the world use traditional blends of several grapes. Bordeaux, for example, is generally a mixture of four to five different red wines. In Chteauneuf du Pape in the Southern Rhone, law and tradition allow as many as 13 grapes in the blend, though hardly anyone uses all of them. But thats not the subject of this article, either. Champagne, also, is generally a blend of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meuniere, so this whole blending thing is nothing new. But here, were talking about living dangerously blending together varietals that are not only nontraditional, but downright off the wall. Like putting some chairs from Ikea around a Louis XIV table and somehow making it work. Thats what Dave Phinney does at Orin Swift. I discovered these wines about 20 years ago when I tried a bottle of The Prisoner (blended wines have to have proprietary names if they dont contain 75 percent of whatever grape). It was a blend of about half zinfandel all mixed up with bizarre varietals like cabernet sauvignon, syrah, petite sirah, and charbono (of all things). It was incredible, and became a big hit. Dave got inspired, and now makes wine in France, Italy, Spain and Argentina. Hes having too much fun. His philosophy seems to be, lets take grapes that nobody has blended before, mix em together and see what we get. He gets some great results, and theyre well worth trying. Mr. Phinneys style is to make bold, smack-you-in-the-face wines, and thats OK with me. Mannequin Chardonnay California 2013 He can call it Chardonnay because it contains a drop over the bare minimum, but the other 24 percent of the wines in this heavy bottle are sauvignon blanc, grenache blanc, viognier, roussanne, marsanne and muscat. Some of these are traditional white varietals that originated in the Northern Rhne, and Mr. Phinney seems to favor them in his other blends as well. There are tropical flavors of ripe pineapple, vanilla bean (from the 40 percent French oak he uses), honey and lemon. As I noted, Orin Swift also makes wines from Old World countries, but in a definite New World style. F-2 French Wine NV This blend of grenache, syrah and assorted Bordeaux varietals would probably be considered heresy in France. Grenache and Syrah are traditional grapes of the Rhne valley, and its hard to imagine any French winemaker blending them into cabernet, merlot, etc. But Mr. Phinney does. The result: A wine thats deeply purple in the glass with aromas of blackberry, cassis, and lavender. The palate offers strawberry, plum and other dark fruits. WW 92, about $15.

At 837 Fifth Ave. S., Chops is open from 5:30-9:30 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 5:30-10 p.m. FridaySaturday. Its an upscale steakhouse that also prides itself on its 300-bottle wine list. For reservations, call 262-4677. Hometown: East Liverpool, Ohio, but my family moved to Naples 35 years ago, when I was 2. Culinary training: I learned on the job. I started when I was 14 at Grouper & Chips in Naples. Previous jobs: I worked as sous chef at Trios when it was on Third Street. Then I came to Chops and worked my way up. I started out as sous chef at Chops in Naples, then worked as sous chef at Chops in Bonita. I left for five years and worked as the executive chef of Grandezza, a country club in Estero. Then I came back to Chops Naples as the executive chef. Did you grow up in a family where food was important? My grandmother was a chef in Ohio, but Francis Pischner, who works as the executive chef at Blue Water Bistro and had run Grouper & Chips for years, was the one who really got me into cooking. When did you realize you wanted to be a chef? Im still figuring that one out. Its something I just walked into, really. Its always an entertaining job. Its the food you get to create and the people you run the kitchen with. Can you describe your style of food? I like cuisine thats a little bit more fusion. We throw together ingredients you wouldnt expect or that are so subtle, most people wouldnt know theyre there. How do you approach creating dishes/menus? Since were one of five restaurants run by Culinary Concepts (others are Pazzo!, Yabba Island Grill and Blue Water Bistro plus the Bonita Springs location of Chops), we develop the dishes and the menu as a team. We get together over the summer and brainstorm to create new dishes. Everyone gets to throw their ideas into the pot. What are your favorite dishes on the current menu? What makes them special? Our short ribs are one of my favorite items on the menu. Its just perfection and at a fantastic price. Its got this great contrast of flavors. The barbecue sauce is a little bit sweet and tangy, and it melts in your mouth. Our teriyakiglazed sea bass is another favorite. You never see a sea bass with pineapple and teriyaki glaze with lobster. Its got great flavor. What seem to be the favorites among your clientele? Our pan-seared black grouper is extremely popular. Its got this great, creamy wild mushroom risotto with our spicy rock shrimp sauce. Its just fantastic. Our prime grills, the filet and ribeyes especially, are top-selling items, too. Who in the culinary world do you admire and why? I dont really follow anyone. I dont watch The Food Network. Its not the real cooking world; theyre mostly celebrities. With so many people now following special diets vegetarian/vegan/ low-salt/gluten-free/allergies how do you handle these in your restaurant? We can do all of the above. Ill do whatever can be done within my means. We make everything from scratch, so its easy for us to modify entrees to a point. Besides cooking, what are your other interests or hobbies? I love to fish, mostly backwater fishing for mangrove snapper, snook and tarpon. Where do you like to go for a meal when you have a night off? I like to try new restaurants. I really dont have one spot that I go to. I like to see whats out there. I've probably eaten at every high-end restaurant in the area. karen FELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com

Many best of publications are filled solely with content thats bought and paid for; thats not our style at Florida Weekly. Yes, our advertisers the folks who make this piece of Floridian pulp and history you hold in your hands possible receive shout-outs from us in these pages. Its only fair. But the bulk of our Best section has nothing to do with invoices or ballot-box stuffing. The non-scientific, non-crowdsourced process by which we choose our Best winners begins with a brainstorming meeting of our writers and editors. A couple of months later, after scouring the nooks and crannies of the region and our Florida Weekly archives, this section emerges: page after page of things we praise and applaud, pontificate on and poke fun at. Herewith, our Best. We had fun doing it, and we hope you have fun reading it.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY6 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 7-13, 2015 t b e 2015BEST REASON TO THROW A PARTYThe snowbirds are gone!Traffic is lighter and car carriers are heading north, fully loaded. Thats right, the snowbirds are flying away and we can start to enjoy a few things weve been avoiding since January. They include the simple pleasure of not having to make a reservation a week ahead or wait until 9:30 p.m. for a table at our favorite restaurant. Well probably get heat stroke, but its worth it to be able to hit the beach on a weekend day without having to hunt for a parking place. And theres always a seat available for that movie weve been dying to see on a Friday night. Enjoy!BEST PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTSThe great nickel heist of 2015One of the perks of being in the news business is having bizarre police reports float across our desks, and February brought us notification of the delightfully dumb nickel heist. Apparently unbeknownst to most of the teenaged partiers, 2 tons of nickels belonging to the hosts parents who were out of town were lifted from under their noses. The parents came home and found that not only were they about $18,000 lighter, but they had been relieved of some firearms as well.BEST PARTY CRASHERSKeewaydin deerThe pre-gala party for patrons of Conservancy of Southwest Floridas annual Magic Under the Mangroves never fails to impress. Its always held at the Keewaydin Club on magical Keewaydin Island, which guests get to via a short boat ride from beautiful Port Royal. Russells Clambakes always caters, and the weather somehow always cooperates (well, there was that one cold and windy afternoon a few years back). But this years guests enjoyed what was surely was a once-in-a-lifetime treat: As the sun started to set over the gulf and the patron party crowd began to thin, a family of deer wandered into sight and strolled sl owly along the beach in front of the clubhouse a parting shot, and perhaps a thank-you, for the Conservancy and its most generous supporters (the Magic main event, by the way, raised $1.2 million a couple of weeks later).BEST PLACE FOR A PHOTO OPP THATS NOT THE NAPLES PIERSugden PlazaAfter youve posed for the umpteenth photo at sunset on the Naples Pier, head to Sugden Plaza and take a few shots with the magical twinkling lights in the background. The stately trees stay lit up all year round, much to the enjoyment of tourists and locals alike. Look closely and you can see the silhouettes of several deer that provided a perfect parting shot at the Magic Under the Mangroves patron party on Keewaydin Island. Sugden Plaza twinkles all year round.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY8 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 7-13, 2015 t b e 2015BEST BAD HAIR DAYThe Big Wigs gala for CmonIt was a great night for bad hair when the Golisano Childrens Museum of Naples held its first-ever Big Wigs gala in February. The crowd was awash with psychedelic blue, dazzling purple and shocking neon tresses atop the heads of more than 260 guests who attended the to-do chaired by Vicki Tracy and helped raise more than $150,000 for Cmon.BEST SIGN OF THE TIMESEntering high crash zoneThe Collier County Sheriffs Office took the added traffic measure of placing signs in perilous roadways to alert drivers they were in high crash zones. To which we would respond that anybody driving with eyes open doesnt need CCSO to state the obvious. However, were grateful officers are trying to catch the attention of those drivers whose eyes arent on the road.NEXT BEST SIGN OF THE TIMESEast Naples Baptist Church marqueeOnce again, East Naples Baptist Church takes the cake for best marquee messaging. Others were close, but ENBC always manages to be divinely creative without insulting non-believers. Past messages have included sayings such as Fight truth decay, study the Bible daily and God called: Come inside to pick up message. The message changes each week.BEST SIGN OF WHATS NOT TO COMENo medical marijuana dispensaries Known to many for its all-encompassing obsession to maintain our seaside citys quality of life, Naples City Council could not even wait for the votes on Amendment 2 to be tallied before they took measures to outlaw pot shops within city limits. In September, council members voted on an all-out ban on medical marijuana, which failed, only to later pass a pot-shop prohibition with the concession to allow dispensaries in the medical zone if the city were challenged in court. Having been overtaken by a bit of reefer madness, perhaps, councilors and some residents worked themselves into a frenzy at the mere thought they might have to behave like we live in the most free nation in the world, in a state that voted for the legalization of a restricted substance. Congratulations, city of Naples, you continue to appear as half-cocked to everyone the younger that 45 as you ever have. BEST POLITICAL LETDOWNThe undoing of the master plan for the citys Baker ParkNo one seems to know what will happen to Baker Park, as four Naples City Council members continue to yo-yo over what they want the future riverfront park to look like. Despite millions of dollars raised and a master plan reflecting input from the citizens of Naples, council has massacred months of progress made by the private citizens who donated specific items to Baker Park. Things came to such a cantankerous head at a March meeting that one attendee left in tears and hundreds of others stood scratching their heads. Mayor John Sorey and Councilmen Bill Barnett and Sam Saad, along with City Manager Bill Moss, remain steadfast supporters of the master plan. These men deserve medals for their patience and efforts, but the fate of Baker Park still hangs in the balance. Park supporters can only hope for some new blood on City Council next year or that a sudden dose of wisdom and foresight strikes Baker Park opponents before its too late to save the original design.

Thats NewsByMe, a new app that lets every citizen report on the events of their community. Instantly. To anyone and everyone else with an interest in that community. It sounds simple, but so does the wheel. And its never been done quite this way before. Free for downloading from the Apple store, the app lets you pick a region, a town or a block and discover instantly anything going on there reported by anybody else. Traffic jams. Events. Crime. A radar trap. A celebrity sighting. Whats happening on your kids college campus. Anything. And when you see something of interest, you can use your smartphone to take a picture, type a line or two and deliver the news to other NewsByMe users.BEST MAN FOR THE JOBLawrence ODonnell at A Choice AffairMost people consider the fight for womens rights to be womens work, but Planned Parenthood of Collier County found an advocate in television personality, former Democratic political advisor and noted man Lawrence ODonnell when he hosted the organizations 11th annual A Choice Affair in January. Mr. ODonnell followed in the illustrious footsteps of past Choice Affair hosts Gloria Steinem, Ashley Judd and Anna Quindlen, helping Planned Parenthood raise money to provide affordable health care and education to Collier Countys low-income women. BEST NEW JOBTrey Radel, PR masterLets say youre a high-profile personality and youve just been busted for buying an eight-ball of blow. Who ya gonna call? Former U.S. Congressman Trey Radel, thats who! Trey understands your troubles, and lucky for you, hes just opened a public relations firm. Thats right, Southwest Floridas most tarnished public figure is going to help you clean up your image. Like it says on his website, (Legal and political) battles are no longer even fought with facts, figures or logic. Obviously, because this is the most illogical career path he could have chosen to make his comeback from ignominy. But the facts remain: Mr. Radel was found guilty of buying cocaine after having voted to have welfare recipients drug tested. And even though he managed to have his record expunged, we will never forget no matter how much polish, smooth talk and flim-flam is applied. BEST WORST TV COMMERCIAL WE WISH WOULD GO AWAY (TIE)888-Sean King and Billy FuccilloFew things inspire changing the channel like the beyond annoying Fuccillo Kia commercials. The entertainment value of Billy Fuccillo and his kickstand Caroline is anything but huge. And then there are the 888-Sean-King ads, which grate on the nerves to such an extent that canceling cable comes to mind. Can you say Netflix?

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY14 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 7-13, 2015 t b e 2015BEST RADIO PERSONALITYBig Kountry Kim He doesnt have the stereotypical radio announcer voice or even the greatest grammar. But what Big Kounty Kim does have is a big heart and a no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is personality. Proudly waving his rainbow flag every morning on 105.5 The Beat, this popular personality also has no trouble calling out foolishness and theres a lot of foolishness in Southwest Florida.BEST KNEE-JERK REACTIONShutting down Golden Gate farmers marketAfter Collier County Commissioner Tom Henning threw a hissy fit about incorrect signage advertising the farmers market at Golden Gate Community Center and calling its largely Hispanic vendors and customers gypsies, two weeks later the board abruptly shut down the lawfully permitted enterprise without adding the item to the board meeting agenda for public discussion. Citing unfair competition for small businesses in Golden Gate, the board voted 3-2 to suspend activities until they could decide what to do with the market, most likely realizing they would have to explain how its own market on the county campus operates differently from one that serves the offensively poor in Golden Gate. The kicker is that the market lawfully provided affordable, fresh produce within walking distance of a large portion of Collier Countys low-income residents, who live in neighborhoods classified as food deserts by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Public outrage and a staff advisory that the suspension was illegal caused the board to swing back the other way, proposing that the market be allowed to operate year-round, rather than abide by the six-month permit it and other farmers markets acquire. BEST ELECTED OFFICIAL WHOSE TIME HAS COME AND GONE County Commissioner Tom HenningCommissioner Tom Henning has done an outstanding job representing the Golden Gate community since his election in 2000, but this years knee-jerk reaction (see above) to shut down the Golden Gate Community Centers farmers market in his own district and calling the largely Hispanic vendors and customers gypsies lead us to believe that it could be time for Mr. Henning to find other avenues to serve his current constituents. Better to leave than further embarrass oneself, no?BEST BAD IDEA FROM THE GOVERNORBanning the term climate changeThe thought police are on patrol, defending the Sunshine State from ideas that scare developers and politicians in equal measure. Gov. Rick Scott reportedly (if unofficially) squelched the terms climate change and global warming. The Florida Center for Investigative Reporting broke the news that state officials were not to use those terms in reports. The story sure didnt help Floridas image. Heres an Esquire magazine headline on the story: Heres Some Stupid for Lunch. As Esquires Charles Pierce noted, perhaps the state can also ban the following terms: Flood, deluge, drowned and sank forever beneath the waves.BEST TAKEOFF(S) AND LANDING(S)Presidents Day Weekend at Naples Municipal AirportWho knew The Best Little Airport in the Country could be so busy? Many of us without private jets forget that Naples Municipal Airport functions at full capacity during season, with Presidents Day weekend being crunch time for its pilots, traffic managers and service professionals. Forget other holidays and even the Naples Winter Wine Festival; its Presidents Day that generates the highest number of takeoffs and landings at the little hub. This year, 1,977 were recorded between Thursday and Monday of the long weekend in mid-February. Considering the brutal winter most of the rest of the country was experiencing, perhaps we really shouldnt be surprised. 2 2 201 201 201 1 5 5 5 5 5 5 7

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 7-13, 2015 THE BEST 17 t b e 2015BEST HEADLINE Hours in Naples, Florida A full page in the Travel Section of the Oct. 22 New York Times painted a vibrant picture of our oncesleepy little town. First on the Times list of things to do: a sunset cruise on Sweet Liberty followed by dinner at Bha! Bha! Persian Bistro. Drinks at HobNob made the cut, too, along with must-dos at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Grouper & Chips, Naples Depot Museum, Waterside Shops, La Playa Beach & Golf Resort, USS Nemo, Skillets, Gallery on Fifth and Extreme Family Fun Spot everything a Neapolitan needs to feel like a tourist.BEST FOLLOW-UP COVERAGE Hours In Naples: The Neapolitan WayWriter Chris Silk and his brilliant pen delivered a clever comeback: Hours In Naples: The Neapolitan Way in the Nov. 8 edition of the Naples Daily News. Mr. Silks interpretation of how the locals live was spot-on and complete with an interactive map so readers could follow along with the story.BEST PERSON WERE SAD TO SEE MOVE AWAYMary Ellen HawkinsCollier Countys first female and first Republican state representative said goodbye to Naples in November, having made the decision to move to Tallahassee to be near her daughter at the age of 91. Ms. Hawkins gave 20 good years to her constituency before stepping down in 1994. Among her accomplishments were the creation of Big Cypress Basin and spearheading legislation for automatic enforcement of child-support orders (despite accusations in the 1970s that she was not a good mother because she was pursuing political office). She remained active in local clubs, boards and councils and was feted in late 2014 with a happy gathering in her honor at Sugden Community Theatre.BEST PLACE FOR INTELLIGENT CONVERSATIONThe Naples Council on World AffairsYear after year, the nonprofit, nonpartisan Naples Council on World Affairs brings distinguished scholars and statesmen to Southwest Florida for programs that help hundreds of locals gain a better understanding of the issues that face the world today. One of 90 World Affairs Councils of America, the Naples chapter has more than 2,200 members and is the fifth largest in the network. Each guest presents an afternoon and an evening lecture to an SRO crowd. Among this years speakers and topics: Woodrow Wilson International Scholar Robin Wright, redrawing the map of the Middle East; Admi. James Stavridis, former Supreme Allied commander, Europe, and commander, United States European Command, NATO today; Angela Stent, director of the Center for Eurasian, Russian and East European Studies and professor of government and foreign service at Georgetown University, Russian President Vladimir Putins foreign policy planning. The bad news: If you want to join the conversation as a member of the Naples Council on World Affairs, theres a one-year waiting list for membership.ncwa-fl.orgBEST PHONE CONVERSATIONVanya and Sonia and Masha and SpikeThe Tony Award-winning Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike was at Florida Repertory Theatre and Gulfshore Playhouse this past season, two productions with completely different casts and directors. Playgoers always rave about Vanyas long rant about how things have changed people dont write letters anymore, they dont share common cultural experiences but the gem of this play is actually another monologue: a phone conversation Sonia has with a man shes just met at a party the night before. The long and touching conversation goes through so many shades of emotion, from incredulous to selfdoubting to gleeful to hopeful, that its a tour de force for any actress playing it. Viki Boyle at Florida Rep and Maureen Silliman at Gulfshore Playhouse both tugged at our hearts with their masterful monologues while also making us laugh.BEST UNDERAPPRECIATED FUN FOR A FRIDAY OR SATURDAY NIGHTThe Florida Everblades One of the best examples of Monday-morning quarterbacking is finding yourself complaining about not doing anything fun over the weekend, only to realize you could have been to a Florida Everblades hockey game at Germain Arena. These hard-working ECHL players are fun to watch, take the game seriously and are a vibrant part of our local sports culture.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 7-13, 2015 THE BEST 21 t b e 2015BEST FOUR-LEGGED BEST FRIENDSDash and GusIn 1928, when Morris Frank and Buddy crossed New York Citys infamous West Street for the first time, America witnessed the unshakable bond in Seeing-Eye dog guide teams. One very special Naples twosome shows how such a bond can exist between dogs, too. Tennessee treeing brindle Dash, a 5-yearold coonhound who doesnt get along with any other male dogs, made an exception when he met Gus, a 2-year-old Siberian husky/Australian Shepherd mix. Gus is blind and partially deaf, so if not for his seeingeye buddy Dash, hed be limited to life on a leash. But following Dashs scent, Gus can run and play without running into trees or other structures. Both dogs were adopted from Humane Society Naples. Gus summers in picturesque Luddington, Mich., with his owner Raymond Madsen, while Dash resides fulltime in Naples, where the canines winter reunion every year is always a tail-wagging, butt -sniffing celebration.BEST BROTHERLY LOVE STORYThe otter brothersTwo orphaned otter brothers lucked out in February when they were rescued together and brought to The von Arx Wildlife Hospital at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. Now they are growing their family circle by one more. The pair left in March to join a lonely orphaned otter at the Florida Wildlife Hospital & Sanctuary in Melbourne, thereby increasing the chances of survival for all three of the playful pups by allowing them to form new family ties.BEST SISTERLY LOVE STORYThe Vagina MonologuesFor the fourth year, more than a dozen local actresses gave of their time and talent to stage a performance (two, actually, as one was added this year to accommodate demand) of Eve Enslers groundbreaking The Vagina Monologues at the Sugden Community Theatre. The women poured heart and soul into their roles, all to benefit for Project HELP, the only statecertified rape and victim of violence crime advocacy center in Collier County.projecthelpnaples.orgBEST ACTRESSMaureen SillimanWe first saw Maureen Silliman at two play readings last September at Gulfshore Playhouses New Works festival. She pretty much stole the show in a reading of Doublewide as Coral, the feisty and opinionated mother who loves to gamble at the local casino and has a system for playing the slots. She then played the mother of novelist E.M. Forster in Shepherds Bush more refined than Coral, but hilarious as a complaining martyr. We were thrilled when Gulfshore Playhouse brought her back this season to play Sonia in Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, where she blossomed from a mousy, uncertain 52-year-old woman into a spot-on impersonation of a confident, extroverted Maggie Smith at the Oscars, tiara and all. We confess, we never saw her work on TVs Guiding Light in the mid-70s, but having seen her work onstage, we unabashedly adore Ms. Silliman and would gladly go see her in any production in which shes cast.BEST HUG YOULL EVER HAVEGrab a gatorTheres something so heartwarming about having the cold, scaly body of a 35-pound juvenile alligator snuggled into your belly that Gatorman Mike Sturgill decided to take his lovefest public.

Mr. Olsen is married to beauty guru Philip Douglas of Philip Douglas Salon, and together they have licensed Kitty for a new beauty product to be sold through department stores and online. Kittys next big entertainment project is in the works, they promise.BEST HURLGod of CarnageAnnette, played by Dede Brownlee in The Naples Players production of God of Carnage, looks pulled together, but shes very, very anxious. Shes arguing with another couple about an altercation between their young sons, while her husband seems to spend all his time on his cell phone with work, pointedly ignoring her. Finally, it all gets to be too much, and her nerves get the best of her. And she hurls, magnificently, copiously, unexpectedly. Its not exactly what you think youd ever see in a play, but its certainly a moment youll never forget.BEST ALTAR EGOPastor Todd StearnsTodd F. Stearns, Ph.D., pastor for worship and music at First Baptist Church of Naples, knows how to get a crowd on its feet, and for that he gives all the glory to God. He also knows how to produce a pageant, as witnessed by the churchs 32-year tradition of the much-loved Living Christmas Tree holiday performance. Last years audiences learned it would be the last time they would see the singing tree, but Pastor Todd promises something new and exciting with the debut of the churchs Naples Christmas Spectacular this coming December.

This years tour included The Bottom Feeders, The Bean Pickers and IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year Claire Lynch. Who knew world-class pickin and grinnin could find a home so close to tony Port Royal and Gulf Shore Boulevard? Audiences love the music and Mr. Morrison, who always has a warm welcome and a few jokes that poke fun at his good ol Southern roots. BEST PLACE TO GET LINKED INThe Johnsonville Sausage StoreIf youre one of those foodies with a steadfast devotion to pork products, you probably already know that the fine folks at Johnsonville Sausage opened the companys first-ever retail location right here on Naples Boulevard. The butcher shop-themed outlet sells 40 varieties of sausage alongside condiments, cookbooks, grilling items and branded apparel. Whats not to love?BEST HIGH SCHOOL TRADITIONThe Coconut BowlOnly school spirit could keep students fighting over a dessicated piece of crap for 40 years, and thats exactly what Naples High School and Lely High School do every football season in the Coconut Bowl. Started in 1974 by two principals who wanted to start a rivalry when Naples split to create Lely, each years victor gets custody of what is affectionately called The Nut (aka the Joe Klimas Trophy), a decades-old coconut nailed to the top of a wooden post.BEST 180B&B Town Center Movie TheaterRecent renovations at the B&B Town Center Movie Theater put it in the winners category, especially for moviegoers in the eastern part of Naples who dont want to drive to Mercato or the Pavilion Shoppes to catch a flick. The cinema now offers the latest in sound and comfort, including highback rocker chairs with cup holders (for your beer or wine, which is also now available. The new-and-improved movie theater is a great draw for a part of town that needs more attention.BEST MUSTACHE Xavier BrignoniWhen artist Xavier Brignoni was in his early 20s, he started losing his hair. Rather than combing it over, he embraced it and shaved his head. Doesnt matter, says the native of Puerto Rico, I have plenty of facial hair to style. Mr. Brignoni has always admired the art and fashion of the turn-of-the-century, and it inspired his steampunk handlebar mustache. As a regular on the art party scene, his mustache is Mr. Brignonis trademark.

The little bakerys big selection of giant and mini-cupcakes seem to smile at you from beyond the glass cabinets. But its baker/owner Jazmine Thompson, who at the sweet age of 21 bought the business after interning for the previous owner, who makes Sassy Cakes such a special place. Ms. Thompsons pure joy for her product extends to an upbeat attitude that could charm even the most cantankerous customer. Sassy Cakes is perhaps best known for its yummy vanilla cupcakes and strawberry blondie cupcakes, but custom recipes incorporate seasonal flavors and edible decorations.BEST MISSED MEALSky the golden retrieverWhen volunteers with Golden Retriever Rescue of Southwest Florida got word of a purebred golden retriever living at a dog-meat factory in Seoul, South Korea, they were shocked. Unaware that dogs were raised as food in Korea, rescue officials decided to change Skys destiny. They networked with animal rescuers in Korea and arranged to have Sky shipped to the United States. She arrived Jan. 25 and promptly became a media sensation and spokesdog for the antidog-meat movement that is sweeping Asia. We cant change the world, but we can change the world for one golden retriever, said GRRSWF board member Mark Dahlberg. Today, Sky lives with her adoptive family in Valrico, Fla., and is training to be a therapy dog.BEST PLACE TO TAKE YOUR CATCHStans Idle Hour on GoodlandThey wont tell you their secret to the most addictive blackened seasoning in Southwest Florida. But if youre lucky enough to catch a fish in the waters of the Ten Thousand Islands, take it straightaway to Stans Idle Hour on Goodland, where theyll happily get it into the pan to be perfectly cooked before putting it in front of you on a plate. Cold beer, blackened fresh catch, waterfront views and live music make Stans one of the last bastions of Old Florida dining.

Tucked in a strip mall off Airport-Pulling Road just south of Golden Gate, Dylans Drafthouse is home to $7 beer pitchers, righteous tunes and drunken spicy mussels. At MASA in Mercato, blood orange margaritas and savory fish tacos can be had for the price of a song if you arrive before 6 p.m. New kid on the block 7th Avenue Social takes the cake for small plates at happy hour, and no one can eat just one of HobNobs chips garnished with bacon and blue cheese.BEST PLACE TO ACT LIKE AN OPERATIVEALTAIR Training SolutionsNothing makes you feel more secure than learning how to stay safe in a dangerous situation.

The wildly popular barre-based fitness classes have been packing them in at area studios. Using a combination of postures inspired by ballet, Pilates and yoga that focus on isometric strength training, the technique is touted as the fastest way to change your body. Pure Barre, a franchise with locations in Naples, Estero and Fort Myers, shapes booties into balletworthy buns in record time, while Beyond Motions Amy Lademann teaches her tighten-and-tone tricks to loyal followers in her signature barre motion and floor barre classes.NEXT BEST NEW BAR IN TOWNBlo For the styling-challenged woman, Blo in the Shoppes at Vanderbilt is a godsend blow-dry bar from which we emerge expertly coiffed and ready for anything. For many of us, it has taken years to manage a basic blowout that reads as reasonably wellgroomed, but Blo allows us the ease of being fabulous without having to wrestle with the tresses on the back of our head. Even better, no one is going to be sitting in a chair for three hours, because the stylists at Blo dont do cuts or color, meaning that turnout is quick and appointments are easy to come by.

BEST RESTAURANT CHAMPION Chef Charles Meredays Back of the HouseBack of the House, a TV reality show that airs at noon every Saturday on the FOX network, gives Neapolitans a glimpse into the world of dining around Naples. The brainchild of Chef Charles Mereday of Meredays Fine Dining, Meredays Brasserie and ALTO Live Jazz Kitchen, it shows what happens from a chefs perspective in commercial kitchens all around town. The best part, though, is that Back of the House visits eateries of all shapes and sizes, especially those that wouldnt otherwise be able to afford such exposure. Be they Michelin-rated restaurants or hole-in-the-wall dives, if excellent food is on the table, Chef Mereday wants to share it.

BEST SECOND ACTSteffanie Pearce and Gulfshore OperaAfter being unceremoniously dumped by Opera Naples last year, its founder and artistic director, Steffanie Pearce, showed she doesnt need them by debuting Gulfshore Opera months later.

World War II veteran Bob McDonald has become quite a fixture on the veteran circuit for his bugling, offering his services for a variety of events that call for taps or a similarly patriotic selection. About two years ago we had someone who was supposed to do taps but had to back out at the last minute.

So if you missed your chance to march this year, you wont have to wait long for another opportunity.BEST PANTHER AMBASSADORUno at The Naples ZooWith a record number of panther deaths at the hands of humans this year, it seems pretty obvious that we humans are putting the serious squeeze on our native wildcats. Enter Uno, who survived a gunshot wound to the face and rear last year. Now residing at The Naples Zoo, Uno ushers in a new era of panther protection in Collier County with the announcement that the zoo will be building the areas only large animal wildlife hospital. The one-eyed big cat will serve as a blood donor for other injured panthers, and his exhibit will allow visitors to see how devastating conflicts between humans and panthers can be. BEST PANTHER WITH IMPECCABLE TASTEThe one spotted lounging in the bushes of a posh Port Royal estatePort Royal residents Al Djindal and his wife, Andrea Cameron, had the scare of their lives in February when a landscaper knocked on their door to warn them there was a tiger beside their house. Upon closer inspection, they found it was actually a rarely seen Florida panther that experts believe swam through Gordon Pass to set up house in Naples toniest neighborhood. After a brief encounter that included some hissing and a tranquilizer gun, the wild cat was relocated to a more pantherfriendly place in Picayune Strand State Forest.BEST LATIN LUNCHES Bargain lunches that pack on the spice for less than $10Grand flavors can be had at lunchtime for less than the price of a movie ticket throughout Naples.

The orchid usually blooms in mid-summer, and naturalists at the sanctuary couldnt really explain the winter phenomenon they were just happy snowbirds of the human variety had the chance to see the pride of South Florida swamps. In late April, thousands of seeds from one of the super orchids four pods were collected by a team from the Atlanta Botanical Garden and taken back to Georgia. Ten percent of the collected seeds will be stored, protected from potential ruin by harsh elements such as storms and fire. Another 10 percent will be grown in the lab for three to four years, then placed in a new habitat. The balance of the seeds will be returned to Corkscrew and dispersed back in the old growth cypress forest.corkscrew.audubon.orgBEST REASON TO PITCH IN FOR A PARADESend the band to the Big AppleThe Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade has called Gulf Coast High Schools name for 2015, and the marching Sharks need to raise almost $500,000 to get as many of its 363 members as possible to New York City in November.
