BY BILL CORNWELL Florida Weekly Correspondent Strip a presidential campaign of its bombast, BS and Civics 101 folderol, and you are left with the worlds most grueling and extended job interview or at least thats what presidential elections ideally should be. Every four years, we essentially hire, through our votes, someone to run the country, to be our CEO. Yet most voters do not approach presidential contests with the same hard-eyed scrutiny that characterizes successful job searches in the private sector. Indeed, the criteria we apply to presidential candidates often are more befitting of how we judge a contestant on a reality TV show. When we go to the polls to select the Leader of the Free World, we bring with us a litany of prejudices and preconceived notions. Neil Irwin, Amateur python wranglers pounce in the Everglades BY STEPHANIE DAVISsdavis@ oridaweekly.comDuring the week, Spencer Cordell is a Lee County criminal defense attorney, but for the 2016 Python Challenge, he intends to head to the wilds of the Everglades, channel his inner Crocodile Dundee, and catch some big snakes on the weekends. I heard about the challenge when the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission did it back in 2013 and I was really intrigued, says Mr. Cordell, who is married with two young children. Ive never done anything like this before, but I love the idea of getting out there in the swamp, hiking around and wrestling snakes. He wont actually have to wrestle the snakes though. In fact, Mr. Cordell knows exactly what hes doing. Hes taken an online course (a requirement to participate in the challenge), plus he was taught in a classroom setting at the community center in Buckingham, where afterward, SEE PYTHONS, A20
A2 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 28-FEBRUARY 3, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARY The better angels of our natureAfter anthropologists from Cambridge University in England reported their conclusions last week about the remains of roughly 25 human beings they found in 2012 people who had spent the last 10,000 years buried in the mud beside Lake Turkana in Kenya this old world kept spinning round. Anthropologists have been finding bodies as ancient as 1.5 million years around that lake for decades. So I might have skipped the story reporting this most recent discovery if not for the troubling question it posed: Is war in our DNA? At Lake Turkana a small band of men, women and children had been brutally destroyed just before the dawn of agriculture. About 10 men had been killed with spears or clubs, and several women and children had likely been bound by the hands and feet, then thrown alive into the shallow waters of the lake and left to drown, the scientists surmised. The question about our warlike DNA makes more sense if you know of this common theory in anthropology: that war originated with agriculture about 10,000 to 12,000 years ago. When humans began growing and preserving food, we gave up the nomadic life for farming societies where eating was more certain. Unfortunately, violent conflict became more certain, too, this theory holds. The hunter-gatherers who lived before agriculture didnt have the time or inclination to kill each other to wage war on a regular basis. Such a theory may now be eyed skeptically. Weve been asking the question for a long time: Are we programmed to strategize and kill each other? And weve been answering it based on our intuitive sense of human nature. A New York Times piece on the question in 2003 quoted both Plato, the famous Greek philosopher, and Einstein, who weighed in almost 2,500 years later. They drew their own (similar) conclusions. Plato: Only the dead have seen the end of war. Albert Einstein: I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones. Thats not a pretty thought. But there might be another way to ask the question itself, a way that suggests some other possibilities as well: Is ethical behavior in our DNA? Ethics, from the Greek words Ethikos or Ethos, meaning habit or custom, is the principle and practice of moral behavior of rights and wrongs not assigned to any one religion such as Christianity or Judaism or Buddhism or Islam or Naturism. Instead, ethics is a seemingly eternal part of human development, designed to allow us to progress and prosper together. This occurred to me after I learned not only of the discovery of 10,000-year-old remains in Africa, but of several other events in the news that seem at first glance to be unrelated. On a local and provincial scale, I learned that a couple of members of a commission of 15 people in Lee County, Florida reviewing the countys charter voted against forming an independent, bipartisan ethics commission to look at the behavior of elected members of local governments. Who would vote or argue against ethics? Never mind that question now. Whether this issue can come before voters in November may ultimately be decided by the countys elected commissioners. In Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties, such ethics commissions have had noteworthy success. Together with that local-politics question of ethics is a related one faced by the Supreme Court in 2010, in the case called Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission: Should corporations, with their deep pockets, be counted as individuals in election rules and ethics, and therefore be allowed under free-speech protections to buy national, regional or local elections? The court answered Yes in a 5-4 vote, which critics saw as a war on democracy waged by unethical corporations with no consciences, no beliefs, no feelings, no thoughts, no desires, in the dissenting words of Justice John Stevens. Whether its programmed into our DNA or its a human practice that can be taught out of us, war may be waged with more than just guns, perhaps; arguably it can be waged with money, too. The bloody wars that took place in the last century and the beginning of this one the warlike violence that we hear and read about in and out of our own society so frequently probably strike most of us as behaviors on the rise, rather than the decline. But ethics, together with experience, is a powerful and progressive force. Harvard Universitys Professor Steven Pinker has showed us with solid data what individual acts of violence may obscure violence ranging from the shores of Lake Turkana 10,000 years ago to Columbine or 9/11 or Sandy Hook in contemporary America: that violence is on the decline, while ethics moral principles that discourage it in any form is growing in practice. In his 2011 book, The Better Angels of our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined, Professor Pinker reveals that violent deaths of all kinds have declined, from around 500 per 100,000 people per year in pre-state societies to around 50 in the Middle Ages, to around six to eight today worldwide, and fewer than one in most of Europe. On average, he shows, non-state societies of once upon a time killed about 15 percent of their population in wars, whereas todays states kill a few hundredths of a percent in wars.Even in the bloody 20th century, all war-related deaths, not only in combat but from genocide, disease and famine, amounted to about 3 percent of the total population, he reveals.Thus, the bones found around Lake Turkana should give us pause not only to sorrow at our own dark natures, but to hope with good reason for the triumph of their better angels. m b T c t r roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com matterbrothersfurniture.comMonday-Saturday 10am-6pm, Sunday 12pm-5pmNaples, Ft.

The crux of the arrangement is simple: The Iranians agree to humiliate us (and pursue their long war against the United States and their hegemonic ambitions in the Middle East), and we agree not to care. It is, as Secretary of State John Kerry says, diplomacy at its best. What Vice President Joe Biden called standard nautical practice involved the Iranians making our sailors get on their knees on their captured boats, eliciting an apology from the commander, and photographing and videotaping all of it to broadcast for propaganda purposes in clear violation of international law. This obviously wasnt another Carterera Iranian hostage crisis (it wasnt even a hostage crisis), but it was another national humiliation to add to a sour public mood that President Barack Obama doesnt get, let alone understand his own role in creating. His State of the Union address was devoted to a pep talk for the country that did more to demonstrate that he is out of touch an occupational hazard for late-second-term presidents than that anyone is wrong to feel pessimistic. Yes, the economy has had a long recovery, but it has been slow and weak and, by some measures, hasnt been felt in much of the country. Yes, we are the most powerful nation on Earth, but our adversaries, from Vladimir Putin to ISIS to Iran, have been gaining and are eager to demonstrate our toothlessness in the case of ISIS, with spectacular acts of evil. The presidents version of world events in the State of the Union was particularly wan. He touted the marginal gains against ISIS without coming to grips with the catastrophes that made its rise possible; he boasted of the Iran nuclear deal, with nary a hint that the pact hasnt moderated Iranian behavior as hoped; and he spoke as though partnering with local forces and leading international efforts in Syria is an effective response to that countrys hellish meltdown. True to form, in what was supposed to be a visionary speech, President Obama continually took ill-disguised shots at his potential Republican successors, Donald Trump foremost among them. He scolded the 2016 GOP field for its fear, cheap sound bites and pandering. There is all of that, of course it is a primary campaign, after all but there also is a deeper disgust with the direction of our country and the failures of its institutions, and a yearning for something better. The president has actively sought Americas diminishment abroad. For him, this is a shrewd play that avoids costly entanglements and makes us stronger. But there is no doubt that we are less respected and feared around the world. The public feels it, and doesnt like it. Many Americans, as a certain presidential candidate puts it, want to win again. They look at the photographs and videos of those American sailors, and it feels like a punch in the gut. The Obama administration looks at them and says to the Iranians, Thank you very much. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION n p O h d t rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Not a drop to drinkThe headlines in major papers around the state said it all: In the last six months, $28 million in political contributions flowed into the electoral apparatus supporting Florida legislators. No one thinks the flush of money into campaign coffers is coincidental to the start of the annual session of the state Legislature. It isnt hard to make the association between political contributions and the legislative output of highest priority to the conservative majority. The reciprocity the money buys is, after all, rather the point. Even Donald Trump admits what most everyone already privately concedes. The fingerprints of special interests are all over bills lubricated by the goodwill the money buys. By this gratuitous measure, Tallahassee is awash in going along to get along. It fact, because these financial transactions are passed off as goodwill, the check writing doesnt rise to the legal definition of bribery. There is only one thing that distinguishes this friendly conveyance from being called what it is the proof that something is given with a specific expectation, and the gift recipient obligingly fulfills the expectation. But a wink and a nod puts a happy face on many a covert deal. To prove bribery and capture rats in a trap is difficult. Most of them are far too practiced to miscalculate how best to steal the cheese. It was not so long ago the potential to corrupt the political process was constrained by restrictions on campaign finance. The premise was simple. Great sums of money sloshing freely in the political system are corrosive to the democratic process. Somewhere along the way, we lost our collective minds. Mountains of cash are flowing unconstrained into the electoral process. The lucre is hidden in plain sight, our eyes wide shut, encouraged and abetted by law, free from the threat of censure and criminal penalty for the undue influence the money so apparently buys. We went down this road because the Supreme Court perverted the one man, one vote principle with its 2010 Citizens United decision. By a 5-4 conservative majority ruling, the court pronounced corporations were people and political contributions a form of protected free speech. The courts majority reasoned that limits on contributions restrict free speech, and struck down overall limits regulating campaign contributions. Further, that Congress shall only pass campaign finance laws banning contributions as what else? bribes. Here is where the thinking goes even more magical: The Citizens United ruling presumes the risk of bribes in exchange for political favors will not increase with the prevalence of gobs more money in the system. The ruling could not have inspired more incredulity from ordinary voters had it been delivered by the Flat Earth Society. Restrictions on campaign finance were cut loose from their moorings, and democracy set adrift on dangerous seas. Unprecedented sums of dark money entered into the business of U.S. politics until weve reached the state of Johnny, we hardly knew ya. Big donors now parlay this winning hand into a legislative juggernaut. Voters are a poor second to the influence money buys in the hands of corporate interests and the legion of lobbyists working the halls. We have no need to look farther than our own backyard for a demonstration of how this works. A major rewrite was recently fasttracked of legislation affecting Floridas water resources. The final form of the bill was supported by Big Agriculture, business, developers and the fertilizer industry. The bills final language was stripped that provided meaningful protection from polluters of the states freshwater aquifers and springs, and cut the legs out from under the states commitment to restore what is left of the Everglades. If you know about water issues in Florida, you know we have plenty of them. Sustaining future supply and preserving water quality requires conservation and stopping pollution at its source. We are mining the states aquifers, paving the way for saltwater intrusion, and over-pumping at unsustainable rates. The supply of drinking water is at risk for millions of residents now and in the future. Floridas Conservation Coalition, representing 50 charter and affiliate organizations and thousands of state residents, blasted the legislation as it made its way to the governors desk, imploring him to veto the bill. They called it a blatant display of favoritism that weakens existing water protections, and hog-ties water management districts, preventing the agencies from doing their job and enforcing the rules. The coalition wasnt alone in its criticism. Editorials across the state and hundreds of organizations also decried the measure, saying the proposed law allows polluters to self-police, forces taxpayers to subsidize cleanups, and invites abuse of the rules and lack of enforcement. Nonetheless, special interests emerged the victor. The states water resources were effectively privatized for their own use as the states priority, the residents of the state be damned. If Florida residents look around one day and see water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink, youll know why and know who to blame. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

ROOTED IN NAPLESA love/hate letter to El NinoDear El Nino, I was snuggled in my bed, diligently processing my list of anxiety dreams, when I was awoken by the high-pitched shrieking of my husbands iPhone at our bedside. Stop it! Why did you do that? I wailed, incoherently shoving at him to turn off what I wrongly assumed was our barely functional alarm clock. How could I know it was you? Weve heard for months that you would arrive in Naples this year in the same state many of our tourists do: as a chilly wet blanket. But the tornado warning was uncalled for. After suffering through summer temps at Christmas and January thunderstorms that pushed up white caps on retention ponds, everyone knew you were here. Thanks to your dramatic entrance, we did learn that had we lived a few miles south, I definitely wouldnt have been naturally selected, because I rolled over and went back to sleep. Apparently, imminent destruction cannot slice through the early morning fog of REM. I distinctly remember a friend telling me years ago that I would make easy prey thanks to my lack of hand-eye coordination, poor eyesight and stifled fight-orflight response. I was offended at the time, but I guess its true when they say its the ones you love who hurt you the most. And, dear El Nino, your irrational outburst wounded me to the core. Mysterious meteorological phenomena are my jam, and Im totally offended that you waited until the dead of night when my defenses were low. Now I have to wait for hurricane season to enjoy the anticipation of improbable death and destruction. While only pure dumb luck ensured that I wasnt sucked out the window, the poor residents of Golden Gate really did have to gather their wits and take cover. Thats just rude, El Nino. Couldnt the tornados have waited for daylight? Its just like when your parents made you wait until 10 a.m. to go knocking on your friends doors, because PEOPLE ARE SLEEPING. Dont make any sudden movements or loud noises you might see someone in their underwear youd rather not. By far, the most infuriating part of this entire debacle is how difficult it is to confirm a tornado actually hit Golden Gate. I want confirmation that we were unceremoniously dumped into a life-threatening situation. Your 85-mph winds were impressive, and Ive heard plenty of anecdotes that a twister touched down somewhere along the Collier Boulevard, but the National Weather Service is hedging a bit and saying that while winds were equivalent to an F-1 tornado, it cannot conclusively confirm a cyclone hit the area. Thats some sneaky weathering, sir. Thankfully, my loved ones were on their game. My husband, probably upon noticing how useless I would be to the preservation of our family and property, apparently watched the windows for signs that we needed to take cover. I woke up to a small blonde child next to me whose survival instincts are strong, if not misguided. Perhaps living with hurricanes and perpetual severe thunderstorms has dulled my sensitivity to meteorological emergencies, but spending an afternoon Googling meteotsunami was the most satisfaction I got from the event that, and waiting for FPL to repair downed lines. I pretty much live for the cheap thrills that come with severe weather, so lets plan better next time. Surely, you have more in store for us this year. Yours in stormy weather, L Lindsey Nesmith is now waiting for the day she is naturally unselected. lindseyNESMITHlnesmith@floridaweekly.com

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 28-FEBRUARY 3, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY a senior correspondent for The New York Times, addressed this distressing phenomenon in a recent column. How can people judge whether a (political) party is effective if there is no sense of objective truth? Mr. Irwin wrote. In that vein, perhaps we would be wise to pay heed to someone like Judy Suiter when it comes to electing our leaders. Ms. Suiter is an internationally recognized business and management consultant who founded Competitive Edge Inc. in 1981. Based some 25 miles south of Atlanta in Tyrone, Ga., Competitive Edge uses analytical tools to advise businesses and corporations on a variety of matters. One of Ms. Suiters specialties is helping her clients (many of whom are Fortune 500 firms) find and hire the best possible employees and then maximize those employees strengths and, ultimately, their value to the organization. Ms. Suiter has perfected a self-assessment tool called DISC to accomplish this. DISC is an acronym for the four behavioral characteristics the assessment is designed to reveal. Dominance (D). Influence (I). Steadiness (S). Compliance (C). In addition to determining behavioral characteristics, Ms. Suiters assessment also seeks to uncover what motivates each behavior. This insight into behavior and motivation is what makes DISC such a powerful tool for evaluating potential employees and also in helping employees understand their strengths and weaknesses.Florida Weekly asked Ms. Suiter to turn her skills to the 2016 presidential contest, and she agreed to produce limited assessments of seven candidates five Republicans and two Democrats. The Republicans studied were Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Ben Carson and Jeb Bush. Ms. Suiter also looked at Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders on the Democratic side. A caveat here. DISC is an assessment based on the responses of the person supplying the information. Since none of the presidential aspirants are going to fill out profiles, Ms. Suiters observations are based on her experience in evaluating DISC responses rather than actual hard data provided by the candidates. If the candidates were required to submit to DISC, we would probably know more about them than any number of town hall meetings or debates could provide. But since that is not the case, Ms. Suiter can only make educated guesses and offer broad generalities. All of this is conducted in the spirit of having a little fun. Given the grim nature of the race thus far, a little fun is surely needed. Before we get to the assessments, here are a few words about the methodology Ms. Suiter employs. Without jumping too deeply into the weeds, suffice it to say that Ms. Suiters work is complex. Basically, the assessments reveal what is the passion behind the behavior of who is being assessed. It is a study of why a person is behaving as he or she is. It not only identifies behaviors, it attempts to explain the motivation for that behavior. That is the CliffsNotes explanation of Ms. Suiters work. Here now are her assessments of the candidates, supplemented by observations and reporting from Florida Weekly.Donald Trump Perhaps one way to best understand Mr. Trump is to look back some four decades to Nelson Rockefeller, another super-wealthy New Yorker who aspired to the presidency. Mr. Rockefeller did not, of course, make it to the White House, but he did become Gerald Fords vice president. And he hated every moment of it. He found the nations second-highest office to be a comedown and a demeaning waste of what he believed to be his superior intellect and talents. I never wanted to be vice president of anything, he once said. Along those same lines, Mr. Trump sees absolutely no incongruity in the fact that his first stab at elective office is for the presidency, the biggest political prize of all. Some politicians spend a lifetime working toward that goal, plodding from one lower office to the next, but Mr. Trump possesses neither the patience nor the humility to go that route. And to Ms. Suiter, that is entirely in keeping with what she sees as his principal behaviors and motivators. Basically, when it comes to DISC behaviors, Ms. Suiter believes Mr. Trump is almost off the scale when it comes to Dominance. She speculates that his teachers may have described him as assertive, an energetic child, defiant and unapologetic, which is classic High D behavior. As with Nelson Rockefeller, Mr. Trump could no more be in a nonleadership role than the man in the moon, she says. Virtually everything about Mr. Trump screams High D: the personal attacks, the penchant for offensive comments, an unwillingness to listen to others, a desire to make his own rules, his unpredictability and on and on. This self-assuredness is often seen in those born to privilege. His father was a successful real estate developer, and by the time Mr. Trump graduated from college, he already had more than $1 million in his own bank account. Although it may seem counterintuitive, this life of ease can also create a sense of vulnerability. As Ms. Suiter points out, extreme bluster sometimes is an effective mask for feelings of deep insecurity. Mr. Trumps greatest appeal is his self-confidence and seeming strength, so heres an interesting thought: If his supporters thought he was hiding his fundamental insecurity, how would that play?Ted CruzNot long after Ted Cruz arrived in Washington in 2013 as a freshman senator from Texas, this joke quickly gained currency. Question: Why is it so easy to dislike Ted Cruz so intensely after just one meeting? Answer: It saves time. Sen. Cruz has an almost unmatchable ability to make enemies and create animosity. And he is an equal opportunity offender. Perhaps no other candidate in 2016 engenders such antipathy across the board. Republicans, Democrats and Independents all, it seems, have something nasty to say about the 45-year-old senator. Yet, here he stands, locked in a fierce struggle with Mr. Trump over the Republican Partys front-runner status. What gives? What is it about Sen. Cruz that some find so objectionable, but others find so enticing? People who share the same beliefs (as Sen. Cruz) think he is absolutely wonderful, Ms. Suiter explains, stating the obvious. The appeal, Ms. Suiter speculates, could be that many of the senators beliefs seem to be based on traditional motivations. To reinforce this point, she points to Sen. Cruzs perceived adherence to religious faith, family and patriotism. He also was the youngest, longest-serving and only Hispanic solicitor general of Texas, another appealing attribute to traditionalists, she says. While Mr. Trump wallowed in Dominance, the only High D trait that Ms. Suiter perceives in Sen. Cruz is his reputation as a passionate and effective fighter. Sen. Cruz conveys these images in a variety of ways, Ms. Suiter says, not the least of which is his reputation for not sugarcoating anything. So, the precise qualities that many find irritating, others find enormously appealing. Recent attacks on Sen. Cruz principally by Mr. Trump and Sen. Rubio center on undermining this appeal. These assaults seek to portray Sen. Cruz as a faux populist who rails against New York City and the liberal elites, while, at the same time, accepting a huge loan from Goldman Sachs (where his wife is employed) and downplaying his Ivy League education (Princeton undergrad, Harvard Law). It is a delicate balancing act that Sen. Cruz faces, and, thus far, he has yet to fall off the wire.Marco RubioFloridas junior senator has earned the dubious reputation in this contest as everyones second choice. By inference, that tag implies that Sen. Rubio is the first choice of a very few. This might PROFILINGFrom page 1 TRUMP CRUZ RUBIO
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 28-FEBRUARY 3, 2016 NEWS A9 be a good place to be if the senator is angling for a vice presidential spot (and he very well may be), but he has said often that he wants to head the ticket. Sen. Rubios rise has been nothing short of meteoric. He was a heavy underdog to Charlie Crist in 2010 in the Senate race, but he confounded pundits and political operatives by pulling off the upset. From the get-go, Sen. Rubio was mentioned as a possible presidential candidate. Thus far, his performances in the debates have been solid, and Democrats have often said that they believe he would be the strongest Republican candidate in the general election. Yet, Sen. Rubio seems to have a problem gaining traction. Ms. Suiter believes she knows why. When Ms. Suiter examines Sen. Rubio, she says she finds a lot of (Influence) behavior. On its face, this would seem to be a strength for a politician; wanting to exert influence and interacting with others are elemental to politics. But Ms. Suiter explains that Sen. Rubios heavy emphasis on Influence behavior leaves him wanting in other areas. She pinpoints his principal deficiency with characteristic bluntness. He doesnt know how to fight. In a field clogged with the likes of Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Chris Christie, a distaste for political combat could prove fatal. Also, past controversies involving the sloppy handling of his personal finances lead Ms. Suiter to brand Sen. Rubio as someone with what she calls low utilitarian motivations. The personal messiness involving his personal funds conveys an image, according to Ms. Suiter, of someone who doesnt understand financial systems. If Mr. Trump and Sen. Cruz knock each other off, Sen. Rubio is a plausible replacement. But, for now, his fate seems to be in the hands of others.Ben CarsonDr. Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, is like a marathon runner who sprints off the starting line and then hits the wall at mile 20, some six miles short of the goal. Once considered a serious contender, Dr. Carson now finds his campaign on life support. He recently overhauled his campaign staff, but it seems to have been to little effect. Dr. Carsons preternaturally calm detractors might call it somnolent demeanor was initially a plus. But as the campaign has worn on, it has not served him well when contrasted with the more aggressive and assertive styles of his opponents. Ms. Suiter says her assessment of Dr. Carson fits with experience as a physician. She sees someone who is highly traditional, highly theoretical and highly individualistic. When she compares Dr. Carsons traits with the traits of someone like Mr. Trump, for example, she says it is fairly easy to pr edict the outcome. There is no question which one is going down, she says. (Dr. Carson) knows he is going to have to modify his style, but it will be very difficult for him. Jeb BushComing into this presidential race, Mr. Bush, formerly governor of Florida, was a prohibitive favorite to win the nomination. He had it all: name recognition, a solid organization and tons of cash. Unfortunately for Mr. Bush he was regarded as the quintessential establishment candidate. Given the angry mood of the 2016 GOP electorate, this is not a time to be tied to the establishment (or even to the Bush family, for that matter). And right off the bat, Mr. Trump branded Mr. Bush as a low-energy candidate, a perception that almost immediately took root. I just feel sometimes that I have more zip at 81 than he does, one committed Republican voter told a reporter not long ago. All of this seems to have taken Mr. Bush by complete surprise, and he has flailed and faltered throughout the campaign at times wearing the glazed expression of a poleaxed sheep as he plods through events and debates. None of this surprises Ms. Suiter. She says Mr. Bush exhibits strong traditional and social traits. Nothing wrong with that, but in this fevered political climate they are not strong points. At the very beginning, Mr. Bush struggled when questioned about the mistakes writ large during his brothers two presidential terms. He seemed to have no coherent thoughts, to cite but one example, on how George W. had prosecuted the Iraq War. Ms. Suiter says that given Jeb Bushs traditional and social leanings this should have shocked no one. He would rather die than turn his back on his upbringing, she says. Because Mr. Bushs personality tugs him toward rational, low-key discourse, his recent attempts to ratchet up his rhetoric (Donald Trump is a jerk!) only heighten his difficulties, according to Ms. Suiter. Voters see through that with someone like Jeb Bush, she says. Instead of coming across as tough, it comes across as forced. Mr. Bush seems to be hoping against hope that he can make it through Iowa and then New Hampshire. If he can, perhaps he can find his stride in the South Carolina primary. South Carolina rescued his brothers candidacy in 2000. Jebs hoping it can do the same for him. And now we turn to the Democrats.Hillary Clinton A funny thing happened to Mrs. Clinton en route to the Democratic presidential nomination: She ran into Bernie Sanders. What was supposed to be a coronation for the former secretary of state now looks more like a palace coup. Mrs. Clinton finds herself in a certified dogfight with the Vermont senator for the nomination. In the early stages of the campaign, there was a weird sort of chumminess that existed between Mrs. Clinton and Sen. Sanders. But now that the poll numbers have narrowed, Mrs. Clinton and Sen. Sanders are slugging it out in ways that are not so kind. Mrs. Clinton may have underestimated her opponent. According to The New York Times, some of Mrs. Clintons advisers believe that her campaign made serious miscalculations by forgoing early attacks on (Sen. Sanders) and failing to undercut his arch-liberal message CARSON BUSH CLINTONSEE PROFILING, A10 Visit us online at www.FloridaWeekly.com Download our FREE Apps for tablets and SmartphonesAvailable on the iTunesTM and Google PlayTM App Stores.
A10 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 28-FEBRUARY 3, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY before it grew into a political movement Ms. Suiters analysis finds Mrs. Clinton to be high on Dominance, noting that she can be competitive, ambitious, self-confident, very direct ... impatient, purposeful, tough, intimidating, smart, determined, aggressive, self-disciplined and controlling. These attributes, Ms. Suiter avers, show a very high level of Dominance. In short, Hillary Clinton is Donald Trump in a pantsuit. Mrs. Clinton in this assessment also scores high in individualism and social aspects. Given what she sees, Ms. Suiter has some advice for Sen. Sanders. Be very, very wary when dealing with Mrs. Clinton. You dont want to have to go up against her, Ms. Suiter says. She is really smart. I mean, really smart. And she knows how to fight. This is a woman who will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Sen. Sanders is quickly learning that running against Mrs. Clinton can be unpleasant. Recently, Clinton surrogates began calling on Sen. Sanders to release his medical records, hinting darkly that her 74-year-old opponent might not be physically sound enough to be president. While Mrs. Clintons intelligence and Dominance are well-suited for the political arena, they also are so nakedly apparent that many voters are left cold. Even Mrs. Clintons supporters acknowledge that she has a likability problem. But Ms. Suiter says Mrs. Clintons extreme, pronounced and out-inthe-open High D behavior goes beyond mere likability, She is widely seen as a very devious, self-oriented person, she says. To some, shes simply a fraud. Mrs. Clinton possesses none of the glibness or facile charm that served her husband so well, but in the end it may not matter. Mrs. Clintons Dominance could carry the day. This is one tough woman, says Ms. Suiter.Bernie SandersThe irascible senator from Vermont has tapped into the populist anger that pervades the left wing of the Democratic Party. Not only has Sen. Sanders outflanked Mrs. Clinton on her left, he has effectively presented himself as a straight-talking alternative to his calculating and hyper-political opponent. Sen. Sanders enjoys great popularity with younger voters, and he has made considerable inroads into what Mrs. Clinton believed to be her core constituency, women. When Ms. Suiter assesses Sen. Sanders, she sees someone with low scores when it comes to traditional behavior and strong tendencies toward independence. This makes perfect sense when you consider that Sen. Sanders presents himself as a democratic socialist, which is hardly a mainstream school of political thought in the United States. He is very low traditional, says Ms. Suiter. He is anti-establishment. He is about 100 percent opposite of someone like Jeb Bush. But Sen. Sanders is no mild-mannered crank who spews euphemisms about peace and love. Ms. Suiter notes that his famous temper, his predilection to speak his mind and forcefully articulate his views regardless of his audience all are classic signs of High Dominance behavior. Indeed, it is the unvarnished honesty that probably, in the end, will be Sen. Sanders undoing. This behavior leaves him open to all sorts of attacks. There is a wide perception that he wants everything to be free, Ms. Suiter says. It will be tough for Sen. Sanders to take down Mrs. Clinton. And if that unlikely event does occur, the Democratic Party probably would recruit a last-minute candidate (most likely Vice President Joe Biden or even Al Gore or California Gov. Jerry Brown) to head the ticket in the general election. As stated at the outset, the ab ove assessments were conducted in the name of good fun and entertainment. As always, Americans in 2016 will troop to the polls and cast their presidential votes based on whatever criteria suit their fancy be it rational or irrational or somewhere in-between. H.L. Mencken, the great contrarian, put it best: Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard. PROFILINGFrom page 9 SANDERS

Covered in native Florida marsh plants and calm settling ponds, it is a protected and fertile home to immature game fish, turtles, snakes, frogs and toads, and the preferred landing and feeding spot for numerous wading birds. The Shotwell Waverly Family Filter Marsh was created by the Conservancy with support from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, South Florida Water Management District, the city of Naples and Collier County to help prevent drainage waters from polluting the Gordon River and Naples Bay. Extensive development since the 1950s has led to a dramatic decline in natural areas in and around Naples Bay. A study published in 2006 cited a loss of 72 percent of the mangroves, 91 percent of sea grasses and 82 percent of the oyster beds in just a few decades, all gone after having been present for thousands of years. In addition, the building of roads, parking lots and sidewalks created vast areas of pavement impervious to rain, allowing storm water, mixed with pollutants, to flow unchecked into Naples Bay. Water running off from neighboring residences and commercial buildings had previously flowed through Conservancy grounds in a drainage ditch directly into the Gordon River, and from there into Naples Bay. High levels of dissolved nitrogen and phosphorous, commonly found in fertilizer, as well as other industrial chemicals, contaminated the runoff and the waterways. Recognizing the need to protect the river and bay waters, the Conservancy created a filter marsh. It cleans the draining storm water of pollutants and serves as an outdoor classroom to help educate and entertain both children and adults, and has become a natural home to native plants and animals. On the northeastern tip of the Conservancy grounds, next to The von Arx Wildlife Rehabilitation Hospital, the filter marsh is a well-planned natural retreat. A wooden walkway leads to a gazebo where visitors can peacefully enjoy the numerous birds and animals now found there. Runoff water enters a detention pond, where it slows down before gently and peacefully moving through the new plant-laden marsh, eventually draining into the Gordon River. Plants, soil, bacteria and numerous invertebrates are able to naturally filter out certain pollutants, if given the chance to do so. For example, marsh plants use nitrogen and phosphorous to promote their own growth, in turn providing food and habitat for birds, reptiles, amphibians and small mammals. The calm, protected waters in the marsh are the perfect place for immature fish to feed and grow, away from larger predators found in deeper waters. The filter marsh works well to reduce pollutants; monitoring shows that as much as 16 percent of the contaminating nitrogen and phosphorous is removed. The types of birds coming to the marsh after its construction changed dramatically, with many species not see before now making routine appearances: herons, egrets, ducks and even bald eagles are visitors to, and users of, the filter marsh. Immature snook, a popular game fish, hide from predators in the pond water, and native fish now outnumber invasive. The Conservancys filter marsh also serves as an outdoor learning experience for local schoolchildren. It is not unusual to see a dozen or so young visitors participating in the Conservancys Watery Wonders program or summer camp, knee deep in water and mud, dipping nets in hand, slowly and deliberately wading through the water, at times excitedly calling out, Look what I got! They are collecting water samples and plankton (and an occasional fish or snail) to take back into the Conservancys labs to look at under a microscope. The Shotwell Waverly Family Filter Marsh is a manmade, natural wonder that demonstrates how our prudent stewardship of natural resources can benefit people, plants and animals. Plan a visit to the Conservancy Nature Center and see the filter marsh, and much more, for yourself. Learn more at conservancy.org. Bill Rhodes is a volunteer at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. The filter marsh serves as an outdoor classroom for young Conservancy campers.

Only after inspecting the piece more closely did many observers realize that the man, too, was relieving himself against the pole. Mr. Carmona described the work as commentary on man and dog marking their territory. A recent anonymously authored confidential book by a National Football League player reported that linemen, especially, have taken to relieving themselves inside their uniforms during games, a sign that youre so into the game that you wont pause (even) to use the toilet.Cant possibly be true The popular Nells Country Kitchen in Winter Haven, was shut down again (for remodeling, the owner said) in December after a health inspector found that it had been operating for two weeks without its own running water with only a garden hose connection, across its parking lot, to a neighbors spigot. It had also closed for a day earlier in 2015 because of mold, roach activity and rodent droppings (although management insisted that business had immediately picked up the day they reopened). In November, a perhaps-exasperated Centers for Disease Control attempted once again to tout a startlingly effective anti-HIV drug after a recent survey revealed that a third of primary-care doctors said they had never heard of it. So, FYI: Truvada, taken once a day, said the CDC, gives better than 90 percent protection from risky gay sex and better than 70 percent protection from HIV acquired from the sharing of needles. Truvada is the only FDA-approved retroviral drug for retarding HIV (but its maker, Gilead Sciences, has declined to advertise it for that purpose). Oklahoma Justice: In 2004, abusive boyfriend Robert Braxton Jr. was charged with badly beating up the three children of girlfriend Tondalo Hall, 20, with injuries ranging from bruises to fractured legs, ribs and a toe. Mr. Braxton got a deal from Oklahoma City prosecutors, pleaded guilty, served two years in prison, and was released in 2006. Ms. Halls plea bargain resulted in a 30-year sentence for having failed to protect her kids from Mr. Braxton, and shes still in prison and in September 2015 (following a rejected appeal and a rejected sentence modification), the Pardon and Parole Board refused, 5-0, even to commute her sentence to a timeserved 10 years.Great art Mike Wolfe, 35, of Nampa, Idaho, finally brought his dream to life for 2016 a calendar of photographs of artistic designs made by shaving images into his back hair. He said it took him about four months each for enough hair to grow back to give his designer-friend Tyler Harding enough to work with. (January, for instance, features New Year in lettering, with two champagne glasses; Julys is a flag-like waving stripes with a single star in the upper left.) Calend-hairs cost $20 each (with proceeds, Mr. Wolfe said, going to an orphanage connected to his church).Unclear on the concept Jamie, 29, and Abbie Hort, 21, an unemployed couple drawing housing and other government benefits, won a United Kingdom lottery prize in December 2014 worth about $72,000, promptly spent it all (including some on silly stuff, Abbie admitted), and according to a January press report, are angry now that the government will not immediately re-institute their benefits. Abbie said, as lottery winners, she and Jamie deserved to buy some nice stuff and go on holiday, but that now, except for the large-screen TV and Jamies Ralph Lauren clothes, the winnings are gone. Said Jamie, this past Christmas was just the worst ever. Public relations spokesman Phil Frame, 61, was arrested in Shelby Township, Mich., after a Jan. 1 sheriffs office search of his computer and paper files turned up child pornography. The Detroit News reported that Mr. Frame had already been questioned about child pornography, in September, by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and for some reason apparently was not intimidated enough (or was too lazy) to clear out his files. (The Homeland Security investigation is still ongoing.)Wrong place, wrong time Neighbors in Inola, Okla., complained in December and January about a Union Pacific train that had been parked for weeks while tracks up ahead were under repair. Not only does the train block a traffic intersection, it triggers the ringing of the crossing signal. Its annoying, yeah, said one resident, apparently a master of understatement. At a ski resort in western Vorarlberg, Austria, recently, as the ski lift was temporarily stopped (to address a problem elsewhere on the lift), one occupied lift basket came to rest directly in front of the industrial-strength artificial-snowmaking machine, drenching the two passengers in a several-minutes-long blizzard (of which, yes, Internet video exists).Wait, what? Fort Worth, Texas, firefighters, responding to a suspected blaze in January at a grain elevator, encountered smoke on the structures eighth floor along with a man juggling flaming batons. No explanation was reported (except that the man did not belong there). A department spokesman said his firefighters put (the mans) torches out.

The course is intense, he says. I had this 12-footer by the neck and hes hissing like crazy; I mean youre squaring off with a full-sized wild animal that has a lot of muscle and aggression. That aggression is one reason the non-native Burmese pythons have got to go. According to Carli Segelson, spokeswoman for the FFWCC, these invasive animals are quickly multiplying and slowly destroying the delicate ecosystem of the Everglades, feasting on raccoons, rabbits, foxes and more. Theyre snacking on birds eggs and even the birds themselves, devouring them alive. Some Burmese pythons have been known to grow to 19 feet and eat almost anything, including alligators. Were not certain how they got here, says Ms. Segelson. But there are theories that people who originally bought them as exotic pets released them into the wild. The blame could also be combined with Hurricane Andrew. Back in 1992, the devastating storm destroyed a python breeding facility near the Everglades. When the python problem continued to get more and more out of hand, Ms. Segelson said, the folks at the FFWCC started kicking around some ideas, and thats how the Python Challenge was created. In 2013, during the inaugural event, 68 Burmese pythons were captured or killed. And while theres no way to estimate how many more exist in South Florida, the FFWCC has reported that nearly 2,000 of the creatures were successfully removed from 2000011. Mr. Cordell hopes to catch his pythons alive when he and his team members (three other lawyers and a cop) set out on foot in the Picayune Strand State Forest near Naples next weekend. Hell wrangle them with a hooked snake stick and bag them. From there, hell drop his captures at a designated location where PYTHONSFrom page 1 The 2016 Python Challenge>>When: Began on Jan. 16 and continues until 7 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 14 >>Info: pythonchallenge.org; (888) 483-4861 Download the app (IveGot1) to identify and report Burmese python sightings. Spencer Cordell holds down a python during a training exercise. Burmese python FFWCC and its partners will humanely euthanize the animals. Mark Rubinstein, who was born and raised in Fort Myers, but now works in the construction business in Fort Lauderdale, says he isnt messing around with keeping the snakes alive when he goes python hunting. I bring a pistol with me, so I can shoot them through the head, he says. Its the fastest, most humane method, and frankly, Im not thrilled about walking around out in the woods with a living, angry python thrashing around in a bag. According to Ms. Segelson, the pythons actually become quite docile once theyre bagged, but hunters have choices as to how to catch or kill their prey. On the Python Challenge website there are detailed maps that let hunters know which areas allow live or dead removal or both. Mr. Rubinstein participated in the 2013 challenge, and while there are cash rewards of up to $5,000, he says hes not in it for the money. These animals are decimating our Florida wildlife.

During the eight years it has been on loan to the museum from Jack and F.E. Nortman and the Nortman Family, the WWII-era boxcar has traveled to more than 90 locations in the six-county area of Southwest Florida. Manufactured in Germany in 1919, the boxcar was in use during the time of WWII, although the museum does not know with certainty in what capacity. It is known, however, that it is the type of boxcar used to transport millions of people from countries all across Europe to the Nazicontrolled concentration camps. As an iconic artifact of the era, the boxcar has become an important avenue to help students gain a much deeper understanding of these historic events and their continuing impact on our world. Due both to its busy travel schedule and its constant exposure to the intense weather of Southwest Florida, the boxcar often needs repairs to make it safe for use with students and the public as an educational tool. Most of the metal framing, along with the wheels and roof, all original to the boxcar when it arrived in Florida, remain intact. However, it finally became necessary to replace all of the wooden elements of the boxcar. Badly deteriorating walls, the floor and both doors will be replaced with specially treated wood during the renovation, which is under the direction of iTech instructor Dan Kroeker. As part of their project, Mr. Kroeker and his students will take a field trip to the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida in Naples and, after touring the exhibits, will meet with a Holocaust survivor. Thanks to their work, the boxcar can continue its important travels, ensuring the history of the Holocaust will not be forgotten in Southwest Florida and elsewhere. The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida celebrates its 15th anniversary this season. As an outgrowth of a middle school classroom exhibit on the Holocaust, the museum continues to maintain close ties with local schools, from grades K-12 through college and university level. Amy Snyder, executive director of the museum, said the iTech project shows that by immersing and engaging students in the history they are studying, history becomes both more relevant and memorable for them. The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida is at 4760 Tamiami Trail N. Hours are 12:30-5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday (guided tours at 1 and 2:30 p.m.), and 1-4 p.m. Saturday-Sunday (guided tour at 1:30 p.m.). For more information, call 263-9200 or visit holocaustmuseumswfl.org. Beware of phone scam targeting taxpayersTax filing season started with a warning from the Collier County Sheriffs Office about an Internal Revenue Service telephone scam targeting taxpayers. Callers claim to be employees of the IRS, but are not. They sound convincing when they call, using fake names and bogus IRS identification badge numbers, and they usually alter the caller ID to make it appear that its the IRS calling. Victims are told they owe money to the IRS and it must be paid promptly through a preloaded debit card or wire transfer. If the victim refuses to cooperate, they are then threatened with arrest, deportation or suspension of a business or drivers license. The caller may become hostile or insulting. CCSO reminds people that the IRS will never: Call to demand immediate payment, nor will the agency call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill. Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe. Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card. Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone. Or threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying. If you receive a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS, the IRS advises you to make a report to the treasury inspector general for tax administration at treasury.gov/tigta.

A22 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 28-FEBRUARY 3, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEEL2016 Hyundai Azera gets promoted to the bossIt is often less exciting to be the dependable choice. Thats why there are no pinup calendars featuring tax lawyers, and artists dont use cinder blocks for a canvas. But we are always happier with dependability in our lives. After all, who doesnt like to flaunt it when they have the best accountant in town? So thats why youll likely hear from Hyundai Azera owners. This sedan is the new flagship at Hyundai when the Genesis and Equus-sized vehicles move to the new Genesis brand later this year. They have not changed the Azera much for 2016, but that still doesnt mean people know much about it. Mercedes sells more $100K S-Class sedans annually in the U.S. than Hyundai sells sub-$35K Azeras. This makes it one of the least-common flagship sedans of any brand, and because it hasnt oversaturated our neighborhoods, it still looks fresh. The exterior goes for tasteful rather than radical in its design. It follows the idea that good sheet metal should have gentle curves and plenty of them. The Azera has a family resemblance to the smaller Sonata, but it is not afraid of adding a little chrome trim. This helps it fit in nicely with rivals like the Buick LaCrosse and Toyota Avalon. While the exterior wants to play a little conservative, the interior gets a bit more aggressive. The standard dual-zone climate control b uttons and 8-inch touchscreen infotainment unit are housed in a sleek black and chrome console. The dash and doors have a continuous-flow design that creates a seamless wraparound effect for the front passenger and driver. This is the kind of insulated feeling thats usually reserved for more performanceoriented cars. Still, dont mistake this interior appearance for a thorny sports machine. All Azeras are coddlers that come standard with power front seats (12-way for driver, eight-way for passenger). These are heated and ventilated, and everything is covered in leather. Even the rear passengers have their bench seat heated as standard. In fact, those who utilize the back seat should be the most interested in the Azera. It offers generous room, which is in part thanks to the front-wheel drive layout that skips the driveshaft tunnel in the rear and creates a flat floor. Keeping all of the working parts ahead of the driver does have more advantages than just offering better passenger space. The extra weight over the front driving wheels gives this better traction in slippery weather. This is the cornerstone of what makes the Azera a practical and sensible choice over its Genesis cousins. The 3.3-liter V6 is the only motor available. It produces 293 horsepower, which is more than enough to give the Azera an extra set of legs no matter the current speed. The steering is light and deliberate, and the ride absorbs the bumps without feeling like the car is constantly floating. The total package has the kind of maturity that will satisfy the people who are not constantly thinking about their cars, but they do enjoy quality. Anyone looking for more power and excitement probably needs to hunt in the rear-wheel drive sports sedan categories that are anchoring the new Genesis brand. As the top dog in the newly trimmed Hyundai lineup, the Azera does carry the highest base price in the brand. The good news is thats still $34,995. Included in that are all the premium interior features we mentioned and even the destination charge. So now that Hyundai has kicked the Genesis and Equus upstairs, the main brand has come back to its core of providing good value. The 2016 Azera is a different kind of premium built on the principle that many of us enjoy a road trip, but not all of us have been on the autobahn. It holds up the top end of Hyundais image for honest and reliable transportation. Your accountant will approve of it so much that youll want to tell all your friends about it.

While policymakers worldwide focus on reducing saturated fats, the AHA has found there would be a much bigger impact on heart disease deaths if the priority were to increase the consumption of polyunsaturated fats as a replacement for saturated fats and refined carbohydrates as well as to reduce trans fats, said Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, senior study author and dean of the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy in Boston. Refined carbohydrates are found in sugary foods or beverages and are generally high in rapidly digested starch or sugar and low in nutrition. Dr. Mozaffarian said the study provides, for the first time, a rigorous comparison of global heart disease burdens estimated to be attributable to insufficient intake of polyunsaturated fats versus higher intake to saturated fats. Polyunsaturated fats can help reduce bad cholesterol levels in the blood and therefore can lower the risk of heart disease and stroke. Oils rich in polyunsaturated fats also provide essential fats the body needs, such as some long chain fatty acids. Foods that contain polyunsaturated fats include soybean, corn and sunflower oils; fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring and trout; tofu; nuts; and seeds. To estimate the number of annual deaths related to various patterns of fat consumption, researchers used diet and food availability information from 186 countries along with research from previous longitudinal studies (studies of people over long periods of time) on how eating specific fats influences heart disease risk. Using 2010 data, they estimate worldwide: 711,800 heart disease deaths worldwide were estimated to be due to eating too little healthy omega-6 polyunsaturated fats, such as healthy vegetable oils, as a replacement for both saturated fats and refined carbohydrates. That accounted for 10.3 percent of total global heart disease deaths. In comparison, only about one-third of this (250,900 heart disease deaths) resulted from excess consumption of saturated fats instead of healthier vegetable oils. The authors suggest that the difference is due to the additional benefits of increasing omega-6 polyunsaturated fats as a replacement for carbohydrates. In addition, 537,200 deaths (7.7 percent of global heart disease deaths) resulted from excess consumption of trans fats such as those in processed, baked and fried goods as well as cooking fats used in certain countries. Comparing 1990 to 2010, the investigators found that the proportion of heart disease deaths due to insufficient omega-6 polyunsaturated fat declined 9 percent and that due to high saturated fats declined by 21 percent. In contrast, deaths due to high consumption of trans fats rose 4 percent. People think of trans fats as being only a rich country problem due to packaged and fast-food products, Dr. Mozaffarian said. But in middleand low-income nations such as India and in the Middle East, there is wide use of inexpensive, partially hydrogenated cooking fats in the home and by street vendors, he added. Because of strong policies, trans fat-related deaths are going down in Western nations (although still remaining important in the United States and Canada), he said, while in many lowand middle-income countries, trans fatrelated deaths appear to be going up, making this a global problem. In the study, nations in the former Soviet Union, particularly Ukraine, had the highest rates of heart-disease deaths related to low consumption of heartprotective omega-6 polyunsaturated fat. Tropical nations such as Kiribati, the Solomon Islands, the Philippines and Malaysia, had the highest rates of heartdisease deaths related to excess saturated fat consumption. We should be a cautious in interpreting the results for saturated fat from tropical nations that consume lots of palm oil, Dr. Mozaffarian said. Our model assumes that the saturated fats in palm oil have the same heart-disease risk as animal fats. Many of the blood cholesterol effects are similar, but longterm studies have not specifically looked at the heart disease risk of tropical oils. The recent findings should be of great interest to both the public and policy makers around the world and should help countries set nutrition priorities to combat the global epidemic of heart disease, he concluded. The research was undertaken as part of the 2010 Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries and Risk Factors Study, which is supported in part by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health. The Florida Center for Nursing reports more than 12,000 vacancies for RNs and continued growth predicted in the Sunshine State. For its Demand for Nurses in Florida: The 2015 Survey of Floridas Nurse Employers, FCN surveyed six nurseintensive industries to evaluate the states demand for registered nurses, advanced registered nurse practitioners, licensed practical nurses and certified nursing assistants/home health aides. FCN has conducted the survey biennially since 2007. The 2015 overall survey response rate was 20 percent and included information on 43,179 nurses (37,875 RNs; 627 ARNPs; and 4,677 LPNs) and 11,181 certified nursing assistants. The results show turnover has increased for hospital indirect care RNs and decreased or remained stable in other areas. Overall, there has been an increase of nearly 30 percent in vacant RN positions since 2013. FCN estimated 12,493 RN vacancies statewide as of June 30, 2015, of which 75 percent are in hospitals. The survey also asked respondents to estimate the total number of new nursing positions they intend to create through June 2016. According to the respondents, nearly 10,000 new RN positions will be created statewide, with the majority of these in home health agencies. Within the responding facilities, there were nearly 10,000 separations from July 2014 to June 2015.

Positions requiring experience and/or advanced education remain in demand in hospitals, home health care and public health. Staff nurse positions are most difficult to fill in skilled nursing, home health and hospice settings. More than 70 percent of hospitals report they preferentially hire nurses prepared at the baccalaureate level. About 43 percent of these facilities require an associate degree and that nurses to attain a BSN within one to five years of hire. Fewer than 20 percent of the responding facilities in other industries preferentially hire BSN graduates. The majority of responding facilities indicated that they provide some type of educational support for their nursing staff. The most common types of support are tuition reimbursement and flexible scheduling. Respondents were also asked what they see as the key emerging roles for nursing in their facilities given the current health-care environment. Nurse employers primarily report care coordination as a leading emerging position in their industry for which an RN or BSN would be required. While the state and national economies are slowly improving, health care has remained a strong sector of employment throughout the recession. Economic factors will have an undetermined impact on the future employment growth of health-care personnel in Florida. Nurse employers have a strong incentive to understand the potential growth drivers of the nurse workforce in order to plan strategically for the future.

NURSESFrom page 24 Synergy HomeCare of Collier County presents a screening and discussion of the film His Neighbor Phil at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 30, at the Collier County Library, 2385 Orange Blossom Drive. The film tells the story of Harvey (Daniel Roebuck), a man whose wife Mary (Stephanie Zimbalist) has early onset Alzheimers disease. Marys scattered memory and seeming obsession with their neighbor makes Harvey question his marriage. Through a touching twist, Harvey discovers the secret to bringing his beloved Mary back into the present. While it depicts the effects of the disease not only on Mary but also the entire family and their community, the movie focuses most of the attention on the tireless work of Marys caregivers. We wanted the film to be a true telling of what families go through when Alzheimers or other dementia symptoms become a part of their life, writer/director Scott Thompson said. But even more than that, we wanted to show the truth that love outlasts even the worst realities of life, including Alzheimers disease and that it is love that sustains them when everything else seems to be gone. In addition to Ms. Zimbalist (Remington Steele) and Mr. Roebuck (The Fugitive, Lost, Glee), the film stars Oscar nominee Sally Kellerman (M*A*S*H) and Nashville recording artist Ashlee Hewitt (Elle: A Modern Cinderella Story). A panel discussion with Alzheimers disease experts will follow the screening. Panelists will include Catherine Cruikshank, director of education for the Alzheimers Association, Florida Gulf Coast; Wendy Wells-Chanampa, professional guardian, Senior Resources Consultants; clinical researcher and art therapist Angel Duncan; and Cedric Debernard, president of Synergy HomeCare of Collier County, private duty non-medical home care agency.

Expressions that are the cats meow? You might even say our language has gone to the dogs. Animal-related terms are delightfully descriptive. Some are built upon animal characteristics eagle-eyed, birdbrained, dog-eared irrespective of accuracy (birds are actually pretty darn smart). Others come to us from languages such as Greek, Latin or Icelandic. Learning about their origins is fascinating. Here are some fun facts about pet phrases and how they came to be. Animal attraction. A reference nowadays to strongly attractive personal charm, this phrase harks back (itself a phrase used in hunting with hounds) to the 18th century, when Franz Mesmer coined the term animal magnetism to describe his theory of an invisible natural force that could play a role in healing and other physical effects. Other words describe our affinity for certain animals. An ailurophile is a person who loves cats. It comes from the Greek words ailouros, meaning cat, and philos, meaning loving. While people have been crazy for cats for more than 5,000 years, this term is relatively new, with its first known use in 1914. Dog-lovers have their own distinctive description, also deriving from ancient Greek. They are cynophilists, or cynophiles. Collective terms. Youre probably familiar with the term litter referring to a group of kittens, but did you know that they can also be called a kindle? The word comes from Middle English kindlen and means to give birth. The first-known use of the phrase occurs in the 15th-century Book of St. Albans as a kyndyll of yong Cattis. There are many different collective, or group, names for dogs, most of them related to hunting. These are called terms of venery and include a mute of hounds, from the Old French meute, meaning pack or kennel; a leash of greyhounds; and a couple of spaniels. In modern times, dog-loving wordsmiths have invented their own fanciful collective terms for specific breeds, drawing on wit and word play: a waddle of Pekingese, a snobbery of salukis, a rumble of Rottweilers, a snap of whippets, a grin of Japanese chin, a bounce of beardies, a shiver of Chihuahuas. Im partial to a court of Cavaliers, myself. Hair of the dog. Did your English teacher tell you that humans have hair while dogs and cats have fur? Technically, theres no real difference. Its all made of a protein called keratin. The ground hairs soft, insulating fur and the coarser protective guard hairs on pets are considered fur. The hair on your head has a texture thats somewhere in between ground and guard hairs, so its not wrong to describe pets as having hair. But why do we call for hair of the dog the morning after a night on the town? The idea of taking a nip of the same alcoholic libation that gave you a hangover dates at least to the 16th century, when John Heywood wrote in Proverbs (1546): I pray thee let me and my fellow have a haire of the dog that bit us last night. The concept is related to the even older folk remedy of placing the burnt hair of a dog who had bitten someone on the wound, according to Christine Ammer in her book Its Raining Cats and Dogs. Chowhound. I think most of us who have dogs understand why this term is applied to enthusiastic eaters. It was also the title of a 1951 Looney Tunes animated short featuring a bulldog always in search of a meal. He probably would have enjoyed a hush puppy, a fried cornmeal cake supposedly named because it was tossed to noisy hounds with the admonition, Hush, puppy! Lucky dogs! The phrase sleuth of hounds comes from the Icelandic word for trail.

(239) 415-7576 THE DIVA DIARIESA gentle reminder of social-season dos and dontsRecently, a friend of mine who has two young children and who happens to be quite slim and physically fit was at a sparkling social event when a distant acquaintance walked up, hugged her and smiled widely, asking (LOUDLY, mind you), Oh my goodness! I didnt know you were pregnant! When are you due? Deadpan and without missing a beat, my friend answered, Three years ago, thanks for asking. The distant friends face turned 14 shades of red as she slinked away as my friend continued to rock her stylish empire waist gown. So, apparently, it bears repeating: Even if shes clearly nine months preggers and wearing a Baby on Board shirt and browsing through a copy of What To Expect When Youre Expecting, one never, ever, ever, EVER asks a lady if shes pregnant. Did I mention when its OK to ask? Let me remind you: NEVER. Its party season in Southwest Florida, and when were out and about at festive fundraisers, glittery galas and after-hours business to-dos we must remember the dos and donts of social chitchat. For instance, we all know that were mired in election season, but dont bring it up. Dont ask a conservative buttoned-up type if he feels the Bern of Democrat Bernie Sanders, and dont ask someone who appears to have a brain if shes voting for Trump. Its just not fit conversa-tion for parties. Political discus sions are for Facebook, where you can hide behind a keyboard. Also, if you know someone is married and shes not at the party with her spouse, check to see if shes wearing her wedding ring before asking where her other half is. He could be home watching a football game and that would be fine, but dont do what I did recently: When I queried an old friend about where his wife was, he looked at me and said sadly, Thats a REALLY good question. I have no idea. She left me. And thats when I noticed the lack of wedding ring. Live and learn from a divas mistakes. Another social snafu I witnessed at a holiday soiree: a hostess asking a guest what she could get him to drink. Just ice water, thanks, he answered. Are you kidding? she asked. Come on! Whats wrong with you? Its a party; its the holidays. You love martinis! Ill get you a martini! He continued to protest, she kept insisting. When she asked for the umpteenth time what was wrong with him, he finally yelled, Please stop! Im an alcoholic and Ive just started going to AA meetings. The room went silent as I thought to myself that it was probably people like her who drove people like him to drink too much. Finally, I know this one is old-fashioned, but its a really good rule: If youre at a birthday party for a lovely lady who is clearly older than 21, never asks the birthday girl her age. Unless she begs the question which most of us wont dont bring it up. Ill now take off my Miss Manners hat and put my tiara back on. Go forth, party and keep the chitchat nice and light. You look fabulous! is always a well-received ice-breaker. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week c m i t D s stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

The Caribbean island is famous for so many things. Unfortunately, the unincorporated U.S. territory is now starting to make news for a more troubling reason. It is caught in a financial death spiral that is spinning out of control. How Puerto Rico reached this point and what is in store for this territory can teach us many critical lessons about the current state of government finances and a potentially troublesome future for us all. The rise, and subsequent fall, of the Puerto Rican economy can be directly tied to the passage of Section 936 of the Internal Revenue Code, which was passed in 1976. This law basically exempted U.S. companies that moved to the island from paying federal sales tax. In the decades that followed, Puerto Rico experienced significant growth as manufacturing and service companies took advantage of this tax break and moved operations to the island. However, starting in 1996, the U.S. government reversed course and began to repeal this exemption. And without this benefit, many companies decided they were better off back in the U.S. where they had access to a better-quality labor pool, lower material costs and fewer regulations. Starting in 2006, Puerto Rico entered into a recession from which it still has yet to recover as high-paying jobs disappeared along with many companies. The tax base shrunk year after year as people became unemployed or simply left the island. The government was left with two choices. Choice one was to scale back its services given its lower tax base. The danger here would be that standards of living would decrease and even more citizens could leave. Or it could try to maintain the islands services by borrowing money until things stabilized. Fortunately for the government, the interest on Puerto Rican debt is tax-exempt for any U.S. citizen so it was in very high demand. And so it issued billions of dollars in debt to balance its books.Unfortunately for Puerto Rico, things did not stabilize. In the last 10 years, more than 10 percent of the population has left the island and today, more than 3,000 people leave each week. This decreases its tax base each month, which puts further strain on the islands economy, which leads to a greater population exodus and the vicious cycle continues. So now the government has the worst of both worlds: a shrinking economy with lower standard of living and a massive debt burden. And things are starting to come to a head. This past August, Puerto Rico defaulted on a $58 million bond payment and a few weeks ago it defaulted on a $174 million payment. Even more worrisome is that the governor recently announced that it does not have enough money to even pay its General Obligation Bonds (the most secure of all of the Puerto Rican bonds) unless it claws money from other creditors that it owes. So now it is taking money from revenue bonds to pay other bondholders. And things are only going to get worse as the island has more than $72 billion in debt that it cannot even come close to repaying with projected taxes and other sources of revenue. In fact, the island recently announced that it would need an additional $24 billion in revenue that it does not anticipate it will have over the next 10 years to pay principal and interest on its bonds. So what is the solution for Puerto Rico? First, the government is being forced to slash services across the board from schools to hospitals to police departments. But even this is not enough. The governor is currently lobbying Congress to allow its public utility and various other bond-issuing entities the power to go bankrupt in order to renegotiate terms with their creditors. So basically the government is giving up on attempting to pay back what it has borrowed and is instead attempting to get out from under its obligations. So bondholders and the financial companies that insure those bonds will take a huge haircut on the value of the bonds that they hold. If you currently own Puerto Rican municipal bonds (and many retail investors do because of the tax benefits), I would immediately speak with a financial adviser to determine what your options are at this point.But even if you dont personally own Puerto Rican bonds either directly or part of a fund, it does not mean that you should ignore what is going on with this island. I see this very extreme and sad situation as a warning sign to investors and many governments across the globe. Living beyond ones means cannot go on forever. A day of reckoning will come. So government bond investors, really look into the credit worthiness of the bonds you own. Just because you own government bonds, even if they are backed by taxes, does not mean they are risk-free. This is especially true if the bonds you own are paying a high rate of interest. And governments should see that sticking your head in the sand with regard to high debt burdens will only lead to disaster in the end. So much for Living La Vida Loca.

BOATINGFrom page B1Freedom Boat Club nationwide and the owner, president and CEO of the companys Southwest Florida clubs, opened a brand-spanking-new club site on the Caloosahatchee River in Fort Myers, close to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico, last week. He explained his business goal this way: When a new member comes aboard we give them hands-on boat training, we teach them the rules of the road and we make them comfortable. They know how to handle a boat; they know the regulations. Mr. Crowe operates with similar care for the club member at Carefree. Every new member goes through a training period of a minimum of four hours, to make sure they understand the marking systems, the waterways, the safety equipment, everything. And for boaters who dont have experience, well give them all the additional training they need to operate a boat. The second part is this, explains Mr. Giglio: We try to provide a hassle-free boating experience. Hence the clubs monikers, Freedom and Carefree. If your starter goes out, thats $800 but you dont have to pay a penny of it, says Mr. Crowe. You dont have to pay insurance. If the boat breaks down, you dont have to pay the sometimes significant towing fee to get back off the water. You dont have to do anything, for the most part, except boat a verb that for some boaters doesnt mean simply float around and have fun; it can also mean maintaining, laboring over and worrying. But not at these clubs. When a member makes a reservation and comes to the club, we have a boat ready, explains Mr. Giglio. A dockmaster grabs their stuff, gets them on the boat, they go through the checkout, and they have all the equipment from a safety standpoint that they need. Then they head out for the day. On the way back in, they contact the dock, and the dockmaster is standing dockside. They dont even have to fuel the boat. We have fuel flow meters so we charge them right at the dock. The upfront language on the website for the Southwest Florida Boat Club, with sites on Marco Island, in Naples and in Bonita Springs, sums it all up as if even breathing in and out or walking down the street were no more difficult than taking out a boat: Boats require an endless amount of upkeep, docking and storage fees, insurance fees, repair bills, and cleaning duties. Being a member of the Southwest Florida Boat Club, you will get to enjoy our boats and also not take on any of the expenses or hassles that owning a boat brings on. The Naples location of the Southwest Florida Club at Docks on Fifth Avenue near Tin City advertises two offshore boats and 12 Hurricane deck boats, including a 22-foot Sea Hunt center console with a 225 horsepower motor, and Hurricane fun decks and sun decks and jet skis, kayaks and paddle boards. In any of these clubs, members may reserve and use any boats in any sister locations. At Freedom, for example, that creates a lot of opportunity: the company has 16 locations up and down the coast with a fleet of about 450 boats, says Mr. Giglio any of which are available to all club members at any of those locations. We have a wide variety, he notes. Boats from 17 to 25 feet: sailboats, deck boats, pontoon boats, bow riders Theyre clean, well-maintained, and new or mostly new boats, too. Each boat, he explains, is turned over for a new model every three years, which means at any one time a third of the fleet is new. Not only that, but Freedom and Carefree both allow members to make arrangements in other cities with clubs four or five times a year at no extra cost Tampa and Miami, for example. Boston, Chicago, or L.A., depending on the club. And the clubs work to make sure boats are available, by having enough boats. We dont let our boats-to-members ratio go above 10 to 1, says Mr. Crowe. Which pretty much insures availability all the time. There are other amenities, too, for members: Some clubs will prepare food for members reserving a boat. Theyll supply the boat with ice or bait for those taking out a fishing boat (inshore fishing, near-shore fishing or offshore fishing, with models available for all). That leaves the question of cost. For some boaters especially those with tools, time and the knowledge and ability to make their own fixes and do their own repairs, including on the water when something breaks down boat clubs arent worth it for working people. If youre rich and you dont want to deal with a boat, its fine, says ardent boater Kent Cary, a longtime firefighter and U.S. Army veteran who was trained as a mechanic in the service, and can likely fix anything, anywhere. But if youre a normal working person, its highway robbery, he adds, describing his aversion to membership fees and monthly costs. So you pay all this money and they put the boat in the water for you, and then they wash it and put it away for you. I dont see an average person doing that, especially if you can buy your own boat on say a 20-year loan, and youre paying about $60 a month. But many people cant or dont want to spend the time fixing boats, or maintaining them. At a club, they dont have to. Members pay a one-time entry fee to get into the club: its $5,900 at Freedom, says Mr. Giglio. There are different plans, but the full plan is the most popular, thats $279 a month, the monthly fee. That cost is fixed for the customer for the rest of their lives. As our price increases, which it does every year, theirs does not. At Carefree, Mr. Crowe explains that the upfront fee is $4,995 for a three-year commitment of $299 per month, or $1,000 less than that $3,995 for a five-year commitment, at $299 per month. But he adds what may be music to a consumers ear: I always have promotions available. And the likelihood is that these clubs will remain in place and ready to serve boaters who dont like hassles through thick and thin. Thats what happened during the Great Recession, even when Lee Countys home foreclosure rates were the highest in the nation, explains Mr. Giglio. In 2010 and 2011, our business absolutely took off, he recalls. People couldnt get financing for boats anymore the recession decimated the boating industry, in general. They used to use home equity lines to buy boats, but that went away. So people were losing homes, selling existing boats they couldnt afford and that made it easier to be part of a boat club. There are no credit checks, theres no bank financing, its a reasonable fee and a fixed fee so who is our biggest competitor? Its not another boat club, he says. Its time. Whether youre younger or older, when you look at the ease of boat clubs and see how much more time our members spend on a boat, as opposed to getting it ready and cleaning it and maintaining it, you can see why they like us. Perhaps for boat clubs, therefore, time is not only the biggest competitor, but the biggest friend. CROWE New Freedom Boat Club members Sim and Cheri Maiernew.

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 28-FEBRUARY 3, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY I trace my roots back to 1968, when two fellows left an established semiconductor company to found a new one. One of them created the first silicon-based integrated circuit, while the other famously predicted that the number of transistors that fit in a silicon microchip would continue to double every two years. Today Im the worlds biggest chip maker, with a market value near $150 billion and annual revenue topping $55 billion. My stock has grown by an annual average of nearly 16 percent over the past 30 years and my net profit margins top 20 percent. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Pay Off That DebtWhen youre burdened with a lot of debt, it can be hard to imagine digging yourself out from under it. Its critical to do so, though especially with highinterest-rate debt if you want to build wealth instead of losing it. And it can be done, too.We offer detailed guidance on getting out of debt, keeping your credit record clean and choosing the best credit cards at fool.com/how-to-invest/personalfinance/index.aspx. Here are some tips: Stop adding to your debt. Leave your credit cards at home. You might keep them frozen in ice in your freezer to avoid temptation or cut them up if you have to. (You might keep one for emergencies only.) Avoid getting new cards. You can opt out of getting preapproved credit card offers by calling 888-567-8688 or by visiting optoutprescreen.com. You might transfer your balance to one or more cards charging 0 percent for an initial period. You can find low-interestrate cards at sites such as lowcards.com, creditcards.com and cardratings.com. Always make more than the minimum required payment and whenever possible, pay the maximum. Credit card companies like you to make small payments in order to extend your debt for as long as possible, boosting their profits. Develop a plan. How many cards do you have, with what interest rates and balances? Its usually best to start by paying off the debts with the highest rates first. Next, try negotiating with your credit card company for a significantly lower rate it often works. (Many credit cards charge interest rates of 25 percent or more, which is outrageous.) Remind them if youve been a loyal, longtime customer. Be prepared to take your business elsewhere and let them know. Perhaps consolidate your debts, combining them onto one or two of your lowest-rate cards.To join a community of people paying down debt and supporting each other through the process, visit our Credit Cards and Consumer Debt discussion board via boards.fool.com. Some folks there have paid off more than $100,000 in debt! An Oily MessMy dumbest investment was in a company that seemed to have an appealing alternative to fracking for oil, one that reportedly would revitalize wells that drillers had given up on. I bought in around $1.24 per share, and now have an 89 percent loss. Perhaps the stock will rebound when the sand used in fracking gets expensive or too costly to transport. T.E.S., Gardnerville, NevadaThe Fool Responds: You received a lot of lessons for your money. First off, you invested in a classic penny stock one trading for less than about $5 per share. Penny stocks tend to belong to companies that are new and/or unproven, and they are extra-risky. Their small size makes them easy targets for those who want to manipulate them, hyping them to attract new (and naive) investors who will boost the share price as they buy, so that the hypesters can sell their own shares at a profit. (This is how a pump and dump scheme works.) Since you wrote to us, the companys stock price has fallen pretty much to zero, completely wiping out many investors in it. It can be hard to imagine that stocks that have plunged severely can still plunge more, but they can and often do. A supposedly safer alternative to fracking may sound enticing, but dont invest before checking on a companys financial health and profitability. A Tempting AppleShares of Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) have lost value over the past year, in part due to worries over slowing iPhone sales. Thats significant, since the iPhone generated 63 percent of total revenue in the companys last quarter.Even if Apples growth slows, though, its well positioned for continued profitability. There will be demand for new models of the phone, as well as for new offerings remember how good Apple is at inventing entire new product categories. In the meantime, thanks to its fanatically loyal customer base, the company is collecting many billions from its iPad, Mac computers and iTunes and other services.But wait theres more: Relatively new and upcoming products include the Apple Watch, Apple Pay and even a possible Apple Car. It has many opportunities in gaming, health care, home automation and elsewhere. Apples annual revenue recently topped $233 billion, with net profit margins above 22 percent and free cash flow of nearly $70 billion. Apples stock valuation is rather compelling, with its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio around 11, a significant discount to its five-year average of 14. It offers patient believers a dividend, too, which recently yielded 2 percent. Better still, theres a lot of room for further dividend growth and management has been rewarding shareholders via share buybacks, too. (The Motley Fool has recommended and owns shares of Apple.) I trace my roots back to the discovery of oil north of Los Angeles in 1876 and the formation of the Pacific Coast Oil Co., which morphed over time into the Standard Oil Co. of California. After buying Gulf Oil in 1984, I took on my current name. (I merged with Texaco in 2001.) With a market value near $160 billion and operations on five continents, Im a leading integrated energy company, involved in the exploration, production, transportation, refinement, marketing and manufacturing of a wide range of fuels and other wares. My international brands include Caltex. Who am I? (Answer: Chevron) Cap TalkQWhat is a companys market cap? C.J., Worcester, MassachusettsAIts sort of a price tag. A companys market capitalization is the current value placed on it by investors in the stock market. Calculating it is simple. Just take the current stock price and multiply it by the number of shares outstanding. (Many online stock-quote providers list shares outstanding and often the market cap, too.) Imagine that the Free Range Onion Co. (Ticker: BULBZ) has 40 million shares outstanding and a stock price near $20 per share. Multiply 40 million by $20, and youll get a market cap of $800 million. Thats the current market value of the Free Range Onion Co. If you wanted to buy the whole company, youd probably have to pay around $800 million or more. Acquisitions often happen above market prices, sometimes due to a companys debt obligations or in order to avoid a bidding war. It can be helpful to check out the market cap of a company youre interested in. For example, if youre thinking of investing in social media specialist Twitter, note that its market cap was recently near $14 billion, much more than Whole Foods Market, Alcoa, Best Buy, Xerox or JetBlue Airways. Does Twitters value seem reasonable in comparison? It all depends on your assessment of its profit-generating potential. ***QIs it bad news if my mutual fund closes to new investors? D.Y., Knoxville, TennesseeANot at all. Funds sometimes reject new investors money when their managers have more dollars to invest than great investments to park them in. When a fund grows really big, it becomes harder for managers to earn high returns because they have to spread out the money more. Want more information about stocks?

NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). Much like 2014, and as evidenced in the 2015 annual market report, overall pending sales (homes under contract) and closed sales in 2015 were steady in all price segments above $300,000, with the $300,000-$500,000 category experiencing the most dramatic increase. The median closed price for homes on both ends of the price spectrum rose the sharpest in 2015, while all remaining price categories in the middle of the market stayed relatively balanced. Inventory for all price categories grew in 2015, with the exception of the $300,000 and below price segment, which saw a reduction of 261 homes.The year-end report indicates that we just had back-to-back great years for real estate sales in the Naples area, said Mike Hughes, NABOR member and vice president/general manager for Downing-Frye Realty. While it is tough to make predictions for the future, the Naples area continues to be desirable for buyers that are looking to make a purchase in Florida.According to the 2015 year-end report, overall pending sales decreased 1 percent, from 10,494 homes in 2014 to 10,366 homes in 2015. However, pending sales in all price categories above $300,000 increased. Of note, pending sales in the $300,000-$500,000 category rose 21 percent, from 2,137 homes in 2014 to 2,580 homes in 2015. Likewise, overall closed sales decreased 2 percent, from 9,902 in 2014 to 9,751 in 2015. And similar to pending sales, overall closed sales in all price categories above $300,000 increased, with the $300,000-$500,000 category experiencing the largest increase (20 percent), going from 1,978 homes in 2014 to 2,382 homes in 2015. The median closed price rose 14 percent, from $270,000 in 2014 to $308,000 in 2015. Driven mostly by homes $300,000 and below (which rose 12 percent, from $179,000 in 2014 to $200,000 in 2015), and homes $2 million and above (which rose 9 percent, from $2,950,000 in 2014 to $3,212,000 in 2015), the overall median closed price for price segments in the middle of the market remained temperate.Coco Waldenmayer, managing broker at John R. Wood Realtors, said the report showed a significant price increase in the $2 million and above single-family home market in 2015. This category experienced a 12 percent increase, from $3,000,000 in 2014 to $3,350,000 in 2015, despite also having a 12 percent increase in its inventory, she explained. Mr. Hughes expressed similar surprise in closed sales activity within the singlefamily home market, adding that the report also showed the number of closed sales in the lowest reported price category ($300,000 and below) dropped by 364 homes, yet closed sales for single-family homes in the next category increased by only 205 homes. The shortage in inventory on the low end continued to affect closed sales activity in every geographic location in 2015, Mr. Hughes added. For example, south Naples (34112, 34113), East Naples (34114, 34117, 34120, 34137) and the Immokalee/ Ave Maria area (34142) were the only geographic areas reported to see overall pending and closed sales growth. In fact, overall closed sales in the Immokalee/ Ave Maria geographic area increased by 70 percent in 2015. Even more noteworthy about this area is that the median closed price for single-family homes increased by 84 percent in 2015.The NABOR 2015 annual market report provides comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. The 2015 sales statistics include these overall (singlefamily and condominium) findings: Overall pending sales decreased 1 percent, from 10,494 homes in 2014 to 10,366 homes in 2015. Pending sales for single-family homes in the $300,000 and below category decreased 30 percent, from 2,394 homes in 2014 to 1,686 in 2015. Overall closed sales decreased 2 percent, from 9,902 homes in 2014 to 9,751 in 2015. Closed sales for condominiums in the $300,000-$500,000 category increased 26 percent, from 773 condominiums in 2014 to 972 in 2015. Overall median closed price increased 14 percent, from $270,000 in 2014 to $308,000 in 2015. Overall median closed price for homes over $300,000 decreased 3 percent, from $536,000 in 2014 to $520,000 in 2015. Overall median closed price for homes in the Immokalee/Ave Maria geographic area increased 42 percent, from $151,000 in 2014 to $215,000 in 2015. Overall inventory increased 1 percent, from 4,351 in 2014 to 4,408 in 2015. There is a 5.42-month supply of inventory. Average days on market decreased 10 percent, from 87 days in 2014 to 78 days in 2015. Average days on market for condominiums in the $2 million and above category decreased 40 percent, from 136 days in 2014 to 82 days in 2015. Many brokers believe uncommonly warm weather in northern states delayed buyer migration to Naples in the fourth quarter 2015, contributing to the 12 percent decrease in closed sales for that period. However, overall activity in 2015 made great strides. We currently have a 5.42-month supply of inventory, which is up 6 percent over 2014, said Cindy Carroll of the real estate appraisal and consultancy firm Carroll & Carroll. Granted, we are nowhere near our historic peak in 2008 when we had a three-year supply of inventory, but this is definitely the first year since the recession that weve seen an increase. The NABOR report also showed traditional sales (versus short sale and foreclosed property sales) held steady at 92 percent of all transactions in the last three months of 2015. And conventional sales (properties that obtained financing) increased 3 percent to consume 35.7 percent of the market in December 2015 compared to 32.6 percent in December 2014. In January 2015, broker analysts predicted a self-correcting housing market based on activity in 2014. Today, broker analysts assessing overall activity in 2015 say they remain confident that the local housing market will continue to perform in a steady manner.

The group has picked up the newest theatrical version of the 1935 spy film, which playwrights Patrick Barlow and John Buchan rewrote as a sendup to the convoluted and tense plots so popular in espionage movies. We chose it because its a lot of fun, said Dallas Dunnagan, who directs the local production. Audiences will have a great time, and its a great challenge for our actors. In the new adaptation of the Alfred Hitchcock classic, debonair Richard Hannay is bored with life when he meets a mysterious female spy.

An exhibit of vintage and contemporary aprons opens Thursday, Jan. 28, and remains on display through March 16 at the main Collier County Museum. Apron Strings: Ties to the Past is a touring Exhibits USA exhibition that reviews the aprons role as an emotionally charged vehicle for expression with a rich and varied craft history that is still relevant today. The show contains 51 aprons dating from the 1900s through present as a means of chronicling changing attitudes toward women and domestic work. It also surveys the wide range of design and craft techniques apronmakers have used to express themselves, while still working within creative venues traditionally available to women. Apron Strings: Ties to the Past was curated by Joyce Cheney of St. Louis, Mo., and adapted for travel by the ExhibitsUSA program of the Mid-America Arts Alliance. In conjunction with the apron exhibit, the main museum presents Home in a Jar How Canning Preserves Food & Family at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 3.

C2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 28-FEBRUARY 3, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY GUEST OPINIONWhy the Naples Jazz Orchestra left Camier Park BY PAMELA CAREYSpecial to Florida WeeklyWould you have been able to predict the present weather conditions six or eight months ago? If you could have, youre a smarter person than I, and its a part of my job in planning public events. Would 2,000 of you our fans, our audience have braved the rain and low temperatures to sit outside in Cambier Park this past Sunday evening to hear Ken Peplowski perform with The Naples Jazz Orchestra? If the past two Januarys are any indication, most of you wouldnt. That's what happened two years ago, on Jan. 6, 2014, when The Four Freshmen came to Cambier Park with the NJO and the temperature fell to 62 degrees. Thats what happened last year, on Jan. 12, 2015, when trumpet virtuoso Byron Stripling brought Bobby Floyd with him to play the Hammond B-3 organ with the NJO, and it rained. Only 400 people showed up for each of these events. And its not just Januarys. The next concert it was cold. The next concert included gale force winds. The next concert we just cancelled because even Februarys werent predictable anymore. Lets understand that the cost to produce each of these events is well north of $10,000 (and some, like the Doc Severinsen concert in 2013, are easily double that). And when the crowds dont show up because of bad weather, the NJO loses money it cannot afford. Professional musicians and stage crew, sound engineers and guest artists still expect to be paid, together with airfare and hotel bills. The costs for radio and newspaper advertising still exist. The city of Naples will still collect its $800 fee for our use of the park. When 1,000-1,500 people show up and donate $10 each, everyone has a great time under the stars and dines on Fifth Avenue South before the show. Even the complaints about parking and airplane noise and barking dogs and smokers and fire trucks diminish. But even on some of those nights when we all loved being outdoors in Cambier Park, it was still difficult to break even. When the Naples Jazz Orchestra tried charging admission to one of its popular outdoor concerts in February 2014, wrote Joseph Cranney in the Naples Daily News on Oct. 17, 2015, a decision the group acknowledges went against city rules, it was Mayor John Sorey who let Pamela Carey know. What was not mentioned in that article, however, is the uneven application of city policies. The Wine & Jazz Festival was allowed to charge admission of $35 in advance and $50 at the door. Gulfshore Playhouse at The Norris Center charges at least $35 admission; other groups that use The Norris Center may charge admission as well. Its city property, too. There have been many recurring incidents where NJO personnel who collected donations at entry points to Cambier Park were challenged by people who openly refused to donate because I pay taxes in this city. While that may be true, their tax dollars do not entitle them to world-class entertainment at others expense, especially after those others have paid to use the property. There has been a long-standing perception by residents that the city either subsidized the NJO or underwrote the operation completely. This misperception was further perpetuated by events listed on the citys website under Jazz Concert Series at Cambier Park. There is no organizing umbrella that includes or combines The NJO with other performers at Cambier Park. Another perception is that all musical events in Cambier Park are in some way equivalent, i.e., sponsored by the city, and free, when in fact all organizations are separate, independent and have vastly different cost and operating structures. Ours is not a volunteer organization, rather one with compensated professionals. Not only is our orchestra not subsidized; it has, quite frankly, had its welcome mat stripped from the door. Gaining an approved schedule by City Council has been difficult the last two or three years. We were asked to eliminate some dates completely, thereby reducing the number of concerts in each of the past two years, despite an increased demand by surveyed residents. It was suggested by the mayor that the NJO move half of its requested schedule from Cambier Park to somewhere in the county or Riverside Park (which is in Bonita Springs!). When one combines the meteorological insecurities with the financial constraints imposed by the city, the only viable protection we had was to seek shelter elsewhere. My responsibility as NJO president and orchestra manager is to navigate the prudent path The Naples Jazz Orchestra

The organization has chosen survival over certain calamity. While the NJO is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, its surplus is used primarily to support a philanthropic endeavor named The Naples Youth Jazz Orchestra. Jazz education and preservation has long been a passion of our founder and Musical Director Bob Stone. Over the years, the NJO has brought the aforementioned Mr. Severinsen and The Four Freshmen as well as Byron Stripling, Carmen Bradford, Freddy Cole and other world-famous musicians to Naples for the price of a $10 donation. The NJO has been the recipient of the Naples Daily News Choice Champion award for Best Musical Entertainment for the past four years, and the Star award for the two years prior to that. The orchestra now performs in a beautiful venue at Golden Gate High School, which accommodates 600 patrons and costs approximately the same as Cambier Park. Its size doesnt possess the elasticity of Cambier Park, and therefore our production costs are spread among fewer people. Admission is just $30 ($25 online at naplesjazzorchestra.com) and is still the least expensive ticket to some of the best entertainment in town. When Mr. Severinsen last appeared in Naples in 2006, tickets started at $140. Last year, tickets to hear Mr. Peplowski at ArtisNaples were $140. And yet we are now accused of performing only for the elite. We thought we were building an institution. Are NJO concerts really about the music, or merely a lifestyle set in a park? We are dedicated to bringing worldclass entertainment to Naples for the lowest admission price that we can. Please join us at Golden Gate High School for our next concert from 7-9 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 7, when multi-Grammy nominated composer and trombonist Steve Weist and trumpeter Ryan Chapman join the NJO for a tribute to Maynard Ferguson. Pamela Carey is president of the Naples Jazz Orchestra and also serves as orchestra manager.

Audiences will have a great time, and its a great challenge for our actors. Dallas Dunnagan, directorbecomes the sole suspect and goes on the run. Rather than evoking suspense and thrills typical to spy film to engage the audience, the play instead manipulates familiar tropes for laughs by using only four actors and a sparsely furnished stage to portray about 150 characters and 30 scenes. The script is full of allusions to genre clichs, Hitchcock movies and historical trends. The challenge, of course, is to make distinct characters of all these different roles, so that when you look at the actor you see exactly who theyre playing, Ms. Dunnagan said. The woman in the piece is also playing three different women. We talk about who these people are and then we develop that into a physical look and vocalization. Is this a high-pitched character or low-pitched? Is he craggy-voiced or a smooth talker? Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon, British playwrights who originally conceived of boiling down the cast to only four actors, wrote the first theatrical adaptation, which debuted in 1995 in a small theater in Yorkshire. The re-adaptation by Mr. Barlow and Mr. Buchan debuted in August 2006 at Londons Tricycle Theater and has won several awards, including the Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 2007 and the Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience in 2008. Stepping into the lead role for The Naples Players is Michael Santos, who most recently performed at Michael in God of Carnage and is active in the organizations Stage 2 Improv productions. The main character and hero of the story, he is the only one in the cast who does not participate in the whirlwind of characters and quick-changes, though his improvisational training helped him manage the fast pace and sparse sets. Im the same character throughout, but that doesnt mean I dont sweat it, because I sweat it a lot. Theres a lot of physical action, Mr. Santos said. Im having a ball coming up with different comedic bits here and there. My improv experience helps me come up with fun physical action that might help the laughs come. The audience, he continued, will enjoy the show if they arrive with some imagination and an appreciation for spoofs, particularly if they have a working knowledge of midcentury film noir and the Hitchcockian sensibility. If you love something for what it is and are able to appreciate it, you must be able to laugh at it, he said. People who like (the genre) will appreciate those winks and nods, those older movie references and clichs. JamieLynn Bucci, another member of the Stage 2 Improv troupe, plays the roles of Pamela, Margaret and Annabella, the three women with whom Richard has romantic entanglements. Ms. Bucci was last seen as Pilar in The Naples Players summer 2015 production of Legally Blonde: The Musical. Performing every other role in the play heroes and villains, men and women are Victor Caroli, John Hardisty and Robert Ball. Mr. Caroli is a classically trained actor and a retired member of Actors Equity who has performed professionally in dinner theater, numerous regional theaters and Off-Broadway. He most recently starred in The Naples Players spring 2015 production of The Last Romance. The 39 Steps marks the debut for both Mr. Hardisty and Mr. Ball with The Naples Players. Mr. Hardisty studied at The New York Film Academy and works regularly on film projects in Los Angeles. Mr. Ball has performed on stage in Toronto for the last 15 years, most recently in The New Market Theatres production of Moorie. The British production company Gaumont Films loaded its hopes for international success onto the 1935 film and much of its ,000 budget went to lead actors Robert Donat and Madeleine Carroll, both of whom had already achieved Hollywood success before Hitchcock drafted them. The 39 Steps movie is also loaded with some typical Hitchcockian elements, including an icy blonde lead, a possibly dead protagonist in the middle of the plot and a cameo by the famed director himself, all of which can be squeezed for laughs in the play. 39 STEPSFrom page 1 The 39 Steps>> Who: The Naples Players >> When: Feb. 3-27 >> Where: In the Tobye Studio at the Sugden Community Theatre >> Info: 263-7990 or naplesplayers.org COURTESY PHOTOMike Santos stars in The 39 Steps as Richard Hannay, the man who goes on the run as the sole suspect in the murder of a mysterious female spy.

PH Publishing. 296 pages. Trade paperback, $11.99. Available on amazon.com. Its not often that one encounters an autobiography written by a non-celebrity that has the likelihood of reaching a wide audience, but Pauline Hayton has written such a book, revealing a life lived with immense challenges, plenty of setbacks, risky decisions and an evolution of goals and values. As the title suggests, determination has been a major factor in Mrs. Haytons journey. So have curiosity, the desire to help others and spiritual strength. Born and raised in a small town in the northeast of England, Pauline had a rebellious streak that got out of hand, landing her in trouble and with unplanned-for motherhood at an early age. As a marginally employed single mother, she had to scramble to keep her head above water and had to give her second daughter up for adoption for that childs well-being. So often, it seemed as if there was no hope for her to realize a bright future. Dealing with the trauma of being gang-raped, finding herself either too trusting or unable to trust through many episodes of her life, Pauline slowly f ound a path by discovering a faith and a gift, which she nourished. Though she was never a traditionally religious person, she did become a committed spiritualist healer. She took this opportunity as a personal mission, and her studies led to a vocation that helped many people. In this way, she also helped herself. Her main occupation, in her early adulthood, was as a probation officer, where her healing gifts and knowledge were put to good use. Portraits of her probation assignments are among the memoirs many high points, providing insights on how this system works in England that are in contrast in many ways to probation officer duties in the U.S. Or perhaps the contrast is in how Pauline perceived her role and fulfilled it. Though never trained as a writer, she has a gift for it. She honored her fathers WWII service by writing a book about it titled A Corporals War. The research for this book led her to look more closely into Myanmar (Burma), where her father served. Two additional books Myanmar: In My Fathers Footsteps and Naga Queen grew out of that fascination. Indeed, the support Pauline and her husband, Peter Hayton, have provided for the education of children in remote parts of Myanmar is one of those miracles of how people who are not well-to-do, like the Haytons, can greatly improve the lives of those who would otherwise have no path out of abject poverty. What else? Well, there is Pauline the massage therapist, Pauline the cancer survivor (not at all a pretty story, but a necessary one), Pauline the world traveler and Pauline the often dissatisfied wife. Though Peter must play distant second fiddle in this composition, much of it is his story, too. Southwest Florida was blessed by the arrival of the Haytons in Naples in 1991, having decided to make it their home (Pauline the immigrant). They were trailblazers for relatives who joined them in the Sunshine State. In their own middle age, the Haytons decided to be the caretakers of Paulines declining parents. The story of this experience, told in full in If You Love Me, Kill Me (2013, reviewed in these pages), is encapsulated in Still Pedaling, but there is still enough raw detail for that section to be an effective, compact guide to the eldercare process. Still Pedaling is Paulines sixth book. Its effectiveness comes from the authors brutal honesty about embarrassing episodes and ailments; her considerable skills in selection, organization and style; and her fully realized presence as a vivid, imperfect, unsinkable personality. Readers can put the variety of her experiences and the ways in which she created and maximized her opportunities in life to their own healing use. 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 literature and a creative writing text. m h s t h philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com HAYTON

ARTS COMMENTARY Stuck in the desert with a battling familyChristmas is the season of comfort and joy, peace on earth and some pretty horrific family arguments. In some ways, its unavoidable. Its that potent mixture of heightened and unspoken expectations with the mistaken belief that things will change. Brooke (Jessica Walck) in The Naples Players production of Other Desert Cities comes home to Palm Springs, Calif., for the holidays after being away for six years. A novelist now living on the East Coast, shes written a memoir about a painful time in her familys life and is looking for her parents blessing, which she suspects shes not going to receive. The incident her memoir focuses on is one the family never speaks of; shes tired of the silence and wants to write the truth. The play by Jon Robin Baitz was critically acclaimed when it opened off-Broadway and in 2011 was named Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play by the Outer Critics Circle. When it moved to Broadway in 2012, it was nominated for five Tony Awards and was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The Naples Players often produce plays other community theaters shy away from, but in this case, they seem to have overreached. While some individual performances are noteworthy, the production as a whole does not gel. Perhaps the cast had given their all the previous night at the opening and had little left over for the next night. Or perhaps it was the direction. But the production lacks depth and nuance, which would make it an enormously richer performance. And the night I attended, the audience didnt seem to get most of the jokes. Lyman (Michael Hennessey) and Polly Wyeth (Mary Masterman) are Jessicas staunchly Republican parents. They are friends with Ronnie and Nancy, and Lyman, a former movie star, is also a former ambassador. (Polly used to write Hollywood movies with her sister in the s.) Everything, for them, is about image and appearance. Polly has lost her Texas accent and hides the fact that shes Jewish. They are so fearful of what others might say or think that they even threaten to disown their daughter if she publishes the memoir. Polly is a cold, unloving mother with a razor-sharp tongue. Her motto seems to be: Why give a compliment when an insult will do? She is unrelentingly acerbic, scathing. Lyman just comes across as a blowhard. He has only two ways of communicating: whining or shouting, even in what should be tender scenes with his daughter. You can understand why Brooke wanted to get away; living with those parents must have felt like sinking in quicksand. Brooke and her brother Trip (Paul Nicodemi) share some great scenes when the parents arent around. They joke and laugh and banter. These feel like some of the most natural scenes of the play. Trips a producer of a reality TV show where D-list celebrities act as judge and jury. Its interesting to note that while his sister is determined to get at the truth and publish it, hes quite content with presenting fiction as reality just like their parents. Thats a theme running throughout the play: What is true? Is whats being presented reality or fiction? Its set on Christmas Eve in 2004, and there are some references to the Iraq War. The parents wholeheartedly believe the lies that got us into the war. But surprisingly, a comment about Colin Powells defense of the war didnt get laughs. (The former Secretary of State later admitted that Iraq didnt have weapons of mass destruction and called his defense of the war a blot on my record.) Due to the differing politics of the parents and children, theres both Republican-bashing and liberal-bashing in this play. Brooke, who lives on Long Island, is as far politically from her parents as she is geographically. Diane Davis, as Aunt Silda, Pollys sister, is a recovering alcoholic just returned from another bout with rehab. Ms. Davis, who is a natural shoo-in for playing Linda Lavin roles (Ms. Lavin originated the role in 2011 Off-Broadway), does provide some comic relief. In fact, she has some of the plays funniest lines. But she feels oddly underutilized in this production, and its a shame, because it needs some levity. Director Chris Goutman has chosen to highlight the conflict instead, which makes the show a grueling experience of listening to constant arguing and shouting. Its actually a much richer play, teetering from tragedy to comedy and back again, in the way God of Carnage did. The staging comes across as stilted; characters pose in certain positions and just stand and listen to each other. From the start, it seems as if the actors are just speaking dialogue and the others are only waiting for them to finish what theyre saying before its their turn to speak. The set is superb: a midcentury modern house, made of stone and wood, with a wall of windows revealing the desert and tall, thin palm trees in the distance. A massive stone fireplace takes up much of one wall. And the Wyeths have a Christmas tree so huge, it could rival the one in any version of The Nutcracker. The playwright has crowded his play with many things: comments on Republicans and liberals, the Iraq War, themes of lies and truth and presenting lies as reality, family relations, reality TV and whether we can ever really know the truth about something, or if there are simply different versions. Other Desert Cities refers to a sign on the freeway; you can go to Palm Springs, or to Other Desert Cities. Its clever, because it can also refer to Iraq another desert city or the fact that this family appears to be living on desert islands of its own. Its a valiant effort, but I feel sad this production doesnt live up to what it couldve been. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com BOB KELLY / COURTESY PHOTO Jessica Walck and Paul Nicodemi as siblings Brooke and Trip in Other Desert Cities by The Naples Players.

What We HEAR From Our PatientsMichaela Zerbo, 18Why did you choose Decibels Audiology and Hearing Aid Center?Im a freshman in college and I was looking for a fantastic team of Audiologists. I need the most advanced technology available to support my hearing loss as well as keep up with my schoolwork and sporting events. What do you most enjoy about your new hearing devices?I can hear! With the newest, top of the line technology, I can now join my family con versations! I can hear my coaches more clearly when they instruct on the basketball and volleyball court. The devices are so comfortable, I always forget they are in. What do you enjoy about Decibels Audiology and Hearing Aid Center?I like everything about this place! The sta always make me feel welcome. I never feel badly about calling them if I need something. I love talking to everyone, and they make me feel so comfortable.How has your life changed as a result of your hearing devices?Last summer, I attended a camp and took college courses alongside one hundred other hearing impaired students. Some are isolated completely and use sign language exclusively, and some participate in the hearing world. The experience gave me a new perspective on hearing loss. I view my hearing loss as a gift something that sets me apart. The challenges that I experience have made me the person I am today. I am so thankful for Decibels Audiology and Hearing Aid Center their support has meant so much to me! Gary Fucci, 68Why did you choose Decibels Audiology and Hearing Aid Center?My wife was pushing me to address my hearing loss. Every time we went out with people, I had to ask that they repeat themselves constantly. I knew I couldnt hear. I just didnt know how much hearing I had lost. When the Audiologist did a hearing test and t me with hearing aids, it was a night and day di erence. The hearing aids were so comfortable! I drove halfway home before I remembered that I had them on!How has your life changed as a result of your hearing aids?When I speak with friends of mine who have hearing loss, some of them are hesitant to make an appointment with an Audiologist. Their biggest concerns seem to be: 1. The hearing aids wont work. 2. They will spend money unnecessarily. 3. They dont want to admit that they have di culty hearing. To these concerns, I often respond, The right hearing aids will change your life. Becoming a patient at Decibels Audiology and Hearing Aid Center and investing in high-end devi ces has changed my life. My wife is ecstatic she is so happy with the di erence! When I am out to dinner or at an event, I never have to ask others to repeat themselves, which used to frustrate me. But its the little things that stand out to me. I walk every morning, and now I can hear the birds. I can hear my own footsteps. I can hear the waves on the Gulf. Before, I couldnt hear those sounds. What a di erence!

Simmons, Angelina Jolie) With the villain Kai (Mr. Simmons) stealing the Chi of kung fu masters everywhere, its up to Po (Mr. Black) to save the day. Its a by-the-numbers sequel thats silly and fun enough to keep kids entertained for 95 minutes. Rated PG.13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi (John Krasinski, James Badge Dale, Pablo Schreiber) With the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, under attack in September 2012, six ex-military hired guns hold their ground. The film feels gritty and real, and is better because the visual effects are kept to a minimum, which is a surprise from director Michael Bay (Transformers). Rated R. The Revenant 1/2(Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Will Poulter) Fur trapper Hugh Glass (Mr. DiCaprio) is left for dead by his fellow hunters after hes mauled by a bear. The cinematography is fantastic and Mr. DiCaprio and Mr. Hardy give standout performances, but theres a harsh unpleasantness about it that makes you feel like you need a shower when its over. Rated R.The Hateful Eight 1/2(Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh) Eight scoundrels are trapped inside a Wyoming log cabin during a blizzard, and not all make it out alive. Writer/director Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained) overwrites and underedits, but darn if there isnt something deliciously cinematic about it. Rated R.Joy (Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper) With her personal and professional life a mess, Joy (Ms. Lawrence) invents a Miracle Mop that becomes a huge sensation if her family doesnt screw it up for her. Writer/director David O. Russell (American Hustle) usually imbues his movies with a flair that makes them burst with life and energy, but thats oddly missing here. Rated PG-13.Carol 1/2(Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Kyle Chandler) In the 1950s, Carol (Ms. Blanchett), whos about to divorce her husband (Chandler), finds herself attracted to a department store clerk (Ms. Mara) whos unsure of what she wants. The performances, costume and production design, and musical score make this one of the best films of 2015. Rated R.The Big Short (Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, Brad Pitt) The mortgage crisis and succeeding 2008 economic collapse are given fresh insight and explained clearly and comically in cowriter and director Adam McKays wonderful adaptation of Michael Lewis book. The performances, humor and spot-on script make this an absolute treat; its a Best Picture Oscar nominee. Rated R. FILM CAPSULES

YesThe secrets of a marriage can be a dark, dangerous thing, and in 5 Years the emotions they conjure mean everything. In Geoff (Tom Courtenay) and Kates (Charlotte Rampling) marriage, things were fine for 44 years, 11 months and about three weeks. Thats a pretty good run. But with their 45th anniversary party mere days away, a bombshell is dropped that rocks their foundation: The body of Geoffs lover before he met Kate is found in the Swiss Alps. To this point, he only knew she disappeared; the discovery of the body sets off a swarm of emotions and discoveries for Geoff and Kate that brings the purity of their love into doubt. Ironically, this all happens as Kate plans the anniversary party, which is supposed to be the ultimate celebration of their love. Ostensibly, finding the body shouldnt be that big a deal outside of a few painful memories for Geoff. It all happened before he met Kate, after all. But these emotions run deep, and because Geoff and Kate rarely talk about emotions, dont have many pictures of themselves and never had kids, surprises and jealousy emerge. And no, there isnt any grandiose twist that finds Geoff as a murderer or anything of the sort. Director Andrew Haighs story is too brutal and honest and realistic for that. The narrative plays out in plain, pensive ways, with superb performances by Ms. Rampling and Mr. Courtenay. She certainly deserves her Best Actress Oscar nomination. Note how she emotes with her body and face, not just her words. Every time Kate asks questions she doesnt really want the answer to, and then receives the answer she didnt want to hear, you can see the hurt in her eyes. Ms. Ramplings performance is of a woman who after 45 years of commitment to one man learns that shes not the love of his life. Its heartbreaking. Mr. Courtenay is more subtly effective as a man trapped in the thought of what his life could have been had it proceeded as he envisioned 50 years earlier. Geoff doesnt get emotional about his lost love, but he does act strange after he learns the body was discovered: Hes smoking again, not engaging with others, and he even thinks about traveling to Switzerland without Kate. Mr. Courtenay plays Geoff as relatively oblivious to the effect his actions have on his wife, which makes your heart ache even more for her. Mr. Haigh, who adapted the screenplay from David Constantines short story In Another Country, provides a naturalistic feel thats echoed by the quiet serenity of the English countryside in which Geoff and Kate reside. His camera is observational, not intrusive; most of the time Geoff and Kate are framed together on screen, or one is just off screen and talking to the other. By allowing the viewer to be a voyeur as the relationship dissipates, and not using excessive close-ups or other visual tricks to accentuate the hardship, Mr. Haigh deeply immerses us in the story. It feels like were a fly on the wall watching it all happen and its the ideal approach to take. A spoiler-free word on the ending, which comes after a dance at the anniversary party: Its an unbroken, threeminute final shot. Listen to the lyrics of the song as you watch Ms. Ramplings face. This is acting at its absolute finest. And under Mr. Haighs steady direction, 5 Years is filmmaking at its absolute finest. h m o s b t dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Both Tom Courtenay and Charlotte Rampling won lead actor awards for Years at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival.

In November 1902, President Teddy Roosevelt went hunting for bears in Mississippi. The others in his hunting party shot some bears, but he had not seen one. So the hunters found an old, sick bear and tied it to a tree for the president to shoot. He declared it was unsportsmanlike and did not shoot. The story got to the press and a cartoon showed Roosevelt refusing to shoot the old bear. Later cartoons made the bear smaller and cuter. That same year, a candy-shop owner put two of his wifes handmade bears in the window and was given permission by the president to call them Teddys bears. In 1903, the Steiff Co. of Germany made some toy bears and soon heard about the American Teddy bear, so they sold theirs with that appealing name. Over the years, the bears have changed to a younger look, with short arms and turned-up noses. But the name remains. Today, a collector can find a vintage Teddy with glass or plastic eyes, and brown, white, tan or even red fur of mohair or polyester. Some are small and hold a perfume bottle, some have eyes that light up and some are more than 5 feet tall. A lucky bidder bought a 1930s red mohair electric eye Teddy bear for $448, even though it was worn and the eyes didnt work. Q: I have a tea set marked Colclough, Bone China, Made in England. The name of the pattern, Amanda, is also marked on the bottom of the pieces. The set includes six teacups, saucers, small tea plates and bowls and four larger tea plates. Can you give me any information about this? A: Herbert Joseph Colclough started a pottery under his name in Longton, Staffordshire, in 1897. It became Colclough China, Ltd., in 1937. The company made affordable bone-china tea sets and dinnerware that could be bought by the piece. The company became Booths & Colclough, Ltd., in 1948. It merged with Ridgeway in 1955 This 22-inch-tall red Teddy bear was sold at a Theriault auction for $448 in 2014. The vintage bear has small electric bulbs for eyes that no longer work.

Its metal with porcelain paint and is 5 feet wide and 22 inches tall. Theres a picture of a bottle cap with the words Grain Belt on a diamond on top of the bottle cap and the words The Friendly beer next to the cap. I think its from the early 1940s. A: Grain Belt beer was first made by the Minneapolis Brewing Co. in 1893. It was advertised as The Friendly Beer with the Friendly Flavor after Prohibition ended in 1933. The company was sold several times. Grain Belt beer is now owned by August Schell Brewing Co. of New Ulm, Minnesota. Beer signs sell at advertising shows and auctions. Large enameled metal signs sell for a few thousand dollars if old, more if the decoration is interesting. Q: Id like to know the value of a framed Audubon print titled Pinnated Grouse.

Co., Inc., N.Y. and Endorsed by the National Association of Audubon Societies. Is it valuable? A: Audubon bird prints originally were issued as part of books from 1826 to 1854 and have been reproduced millions of times since then. The words After John James Audubon are on all the prints, including the originals, because they are copies of oil paintings by Audubon. The original bird prints were done by hand and were made in only two sizes, 26 inches by 39 inches and 11 inches by 7 inches. Later reproductions were machine made and came in different sizes. Fourteen of the original prints were bought by The Artistic Picture Publishing Co. and reproduced between 1937 and 1943. Original prints sell for several thousand dollars. Some early reproductions sell for a few hundred dollars, while others sell for about $10. Q: Can you tell me something about the furniture maker A.J. Johnson & Sons? We have a china cabinet with a paper label that reads A.J. Johnson & Sons Furn. Co., Chicago, Ill. A: A.J. Johnson & Sons Furniture Co. was established in Chicago in 1869. The company made dining and bedroom furniture. It was in business until at least 1912. Tip: Have you ever pulled a drawer handle and had it fall off the drawer? This problem is not uncommon for very old furniture with bail handles. The best way to get the handleless drawer open is to use a plunger, the plumbers friend. Stick it to the front of the drawer, then pull. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Piano prodigy joins SWF Symphony for Masterworks III: Love TriangleThe Southwest Florida Symphony performs Masterworks III: Love Triangle under the baton of Music Director Nir Kabaretti Saturday evening, Feb. 13, at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers. Patrons are invited to attend a lecture starting at 7 p.m. in which Maestro Kabaretti and the symphonys guest artists will share their insights into the pieces on the concert program. The music begins at 8 p.m. Masterworks III: Love Triangle tells the heartbreaking tale of young musical prodigy Johannes Brahms, whose mentor, Robert Schumann, invites the budding virtuoso to come live with him and his wife to better develop his talent. As the young man achieves stardom, his mentors mental health deteriorates, and rumors start to circulate that his wife Clara and the young musician are becoming more than just close friends. This drama entangled the lives of three great Romantic composers. Hear the musical genius of all three sides of the love triangle when Maestro Kabaretti performs Robert Schumanns fiery Manfred Overture (inspired by the poetry of Lord Byron), Clara Schumanns Piano Concerto in A minor (featuring Jillian Prescott Scholarship Award winner and piano prodigy Noah Wadell) and Brahms lyrical and passionate Symphony No. 2 in D major. The young Mr. Waddell began playing the piano shortly after his 7th birthday. For the first few years, he looked forward to his weekly lesson, but it was simply an extracurricular activity among his many other interests. It wasnt until 2011 that he realized his gift and started to practice regularly. Since then he has performed at concert halls, performing arts centers and churches throughout the area. His concert at BIG ARTS on Sanibel Island raised more than $30,000 for the new Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. After winning a concerto competition at 12 years old, Noah made his orchestral debut as a soloist with the Tampa Bay Symphony. He has also performed with the Coral Gables Chamber Symphony and in 2014 won his first international piano competition that was held in Fort Collins, Colo. Now in the ninth grade, he recently performed on NPRs nationally syndicated radio show From the Top with host Christopher ORiley. Tickets from $24-$84 can be purchased online at swflso.org, by calling the symphony box office at 418-1500 or in person at the Barbara B. Mann box office one hour prior to the concert. Noah Wadell

Now Bonnie B ozzo takes the stage as yet another prominent character in history: Clare Boothe Luce. Ms. Bozzo presents A Century Through the Eyes of Luce at 1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 4, at the Marco Island Historical Museum. Born in 1903 in New Yorks Spanish Harlem and with nothing to recommend her but her beauty, intelligence and dry wit, Mrs. Luce became a successful woman of the world. She had a simple motto Aim for the top and she did just that, becoming a war correspondent, a versatile author with a hit play (The Women) and a movie screenplay (Come to the Stable, which received an Oscar nomination for Best Motion Picture in 1949) to her credit, the toast of New York society and, perhaps most important of all, the wife of magazine mogul Henry Luce. Mrs. Luce was instrumental in establishing the Atomic Energy Commission and became the U.S. ambassador to Italy, the first American woman to represent her country to a major world power. In 1981, President Reagan appointed her to the Presidents Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, and in 1983, she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Ms. Bozzos sensitive portrayal of Mrs. Luce is loaded with personal tidbits not commonly known about this extraordinary woman. Tickets for $10 are available at the Marco Island Historical Museum gift shop. For more information, call 3896447 or visit themihs.org.

The event begins with a concert at 4 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church in Bonita Springs and continues with dinner at the Bonita Bay Club. Among the voices on the program are American tenor Michael Fabiano, bassbaritone Samuel Ramey, mezzo-soprano Ola Rafalo and baritone Gustavo Fuelien. The Gala will begin with the concert and continue with a ticketed dinner event at the Bonita Bay Club. Mr. Fabiano and Mr. Ramey will perform the Act I scene of Gounods Faust, with Mr. Ramey in one of his most famous roles as Mephistopheles and Mr. Fabiano as Faust, a role he sings around the world, according to Steffanie Pearce of Gulfshore Opera. Ms. Pearce said Mr. Fabiano is often called the hardest-working opera singer in show business. He closed out his debut with Londons Royal Opera as Lensky in Tchaikovskys Eugene Onegin on Jan. 7 to rave reviews. In 2014, Mr. Fabiano was named the recipient of the Beverly Sills Artist Award for young singers at the Metropolitan Opera. The award is designated for singers between the ages of 25 and 40 who have already appeared in featured solo roles at the Met. He was also named the winner of the 2014 Richard Tucker Award in honor of the late Brooklyn-born tenor. Often referred to as the Heisman Trophy of opera, the Tucker Award is conferred annually by a panel of opera industry professionals on an American singer at the threshold of a major international career. Each award comes with a $50,000 prize, and Mr. Fabiano is the first person ever to win both awards in the same year. Jacqueline McCurdy serves as honorary chair of the second annual Legends of Opera for Gulfshore Opera. A limited number of concert-only tickets are available for $25; gala package tickets for $175 include VIP concert seating and the chance to mingle with Mr. Fabiano, Mr. Ramey and other singers at the Bonita Bay Club.

Offer expires February 4, 2016.TWO FOR $39.95SIX-COURSE ENTREES CONTRACT BRIDGEFamous handBY STEVE BECKERThis deal occurred in the match between France and Brazil at the 1971 world team championship. It's hard to believe that two top players Jean-Louis Stoppa and Roger Trezel of France could voluntarily bid a grand slam missing all four aces, but they did. Certainly the first three bids were all reasonable. The trouble started when North, at his second turn, raised to three hearts (forcing) instead of two. It's hard to blame South for investigating a slam by using Blackwood. From his viewpoint, a small slam was certain if his partner had three aces, and a grand slam could be made if, perchance, his partner had all four aces. North responded five clubs, which in standard Blackwood shows zero or four aces. South could not believe that his partner had no aces, considering his three-heart bid, so he leaped straightaway to seven hearts. This development was doubled by an astonished West, who thought it was possible that either or both of his minor-suit aces might not score tricks, but could not imagine how the ace of trumps would get away. East was naturally pleased as well, since he had an ace his partner knew nothing about. South eventually ended down three 500 points. This contrasted greatly with the outcome at the other table, where the Brazilian North-South pair managed to stop in four hearts, scoring 420 points, after the following sequence: East South West North Pass 1 [H] Pass 2 [H] Pass 4 [H]

Sign us up! Former restaurateur Sandy Wilder recently debuted her newest venture, Taste of Naples Tours, where guests travel via a luxury limo bus from restaurant to restaurant, sampling wine and menu items at each stop. Participating restaurants include hot spots such as Fuse Global Cuisine, HobNob Kitchen & Bar, La Moraga and Naples Wine Collection. We felt there was a niche in Naples for a tour service specializing in serving people who are looking for a high-end, chauffeured evening out on the town, Ms. Wilder said. Its ideal for large groups that would be challenged by the logistical task of synchronizing arrivals/ departures. We pick people up at their home or hotel and the first reservation is at 6 p.m., Ms. Wilder said. The evening starts with wine en route to the first destination. From there, the tour makes up to six stops where guests savor small plates with wines to match the chefs preparations. Servers describe the dishes at each destination, and diners also receive a printed menu. They do get a lot of food at each location, Ms. Wilder said, noting that each plate is about one-third the size of a normal entre. No one goes hungry. The inspiration for Taste of Naples Tours came during a trip to Melbourne, Australia, when she and her husband enjoyed a walking tour of the citys culinary hot spots. We came back and wondered why there wasnt one in Naples, she said. Tours are limited to 10 people and cost $199 per person. For more information, call 250-9040 or visit tasteofnaplestours.com. Golf tourney tees up a new food eventWeve often wondered when Naples will be recognized at the world capital of food festivals, and the newest addition could bring our seaside city closer to the top of that list. The Chubb Classic (formerly the ACE Group Classic), a PGA Tour Champions tournament at TwinEagles next month, has added a food festival that includes a day pass to the golf events. BITE SW Florida will take place after play at 2 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 12-13, on the driving range at TwinEagles. For $45, guests will enjoy the tournament and unlimited samples of wine, craft beer and menu items from local restaurants. Current ticketholders to the tournament can pay $20 for access to BITE SW Florida. Participating restaurants and vendors include: Blue Point Brewing Company, Boston Beer Garden, Casalvento Wine, David Frost Wine, Fire & Rice, Fish Crazy Restaurant & Fish Market, Hurricanes Grill & Wings, Incas Kitchen, Kona Brewing Company, Livernano Wine, New York Pizza and Pasta, Paradise Wines, Randys Fish Market Restaurant, Seasons 52, Seminole Casino Hotel, Stevie Tomatos Sports Page, Sweet Tomatoes, The Counter and Wicked Dolphin Rum.

The past six weeks have been a blur of activity and traffic that has prevented a lot of our familys typical huntingand-gathering schedule. After a post-soccer special request from the kids for some pancakes, I realized that we had practically none of the supplies we rely on for our weekend sugar fix. We loaded the car and decided to try out what appears to be, considering that breakfast rush still seemed to be happening at 11:30 a.m., Naples favorite new breakfast spot. The kids were satisfied with their plain pancakes, but I congratulated myself for not lighting myself on fire with a chicken crepe. I am constantly surprised at how the humble crepe can elevate practically any filling, but this one was particularly special. A lightly sweet crepe the size of a swaddled newborn held diced chicken, cheddar, mixed sauted vegetables and black olives dressed with mushroom-sherry sauce and topped with sliced almonds. I would drink that sauce from a soup bowl if I werent ashamed to ask, and the olives were a unique and appropriate addition. Again, Im embarrassed to admit I ate the whole thing. One more thing: Original Pancake House is a sizable restaurant and its extensive pancake, waffle and crepe menu is worth waiting for, even with hangry children in tow. Despite a packed house and a rather large and sophisticated menu, service was friendly, quick and accessible.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Another Broken Egg Caf, 670 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 300-0696 I can heartily recommend this terrific newcomer for a unique breakfast. While it offers traditional items, theres ample opportunity for experimentation. Crab cakes topped with poached eggs and Andouille-infused Hollandaise, for example. Omelettes with lobsters and Brie and even some breakfast appetizers. I can personally attest to the deliciousness of the Baked Brie Delight, a slab or warm cheese served with apples, raisins and pecans lightly sauted in Grand Marnier butter sauce p aired with toasted French bread. Other winners were a large bowl of house-made granola, fruit and quinoa with strawberries, blueberries, bananas, coconut and vanilla Greek yogurt; the Bacquezo, an omelette with cream cheese, bacon, chorizo, Monterey Jack and green onions; and the Hey Lucy! omelette with chorizo, sauted onions, green chiles and cheddar. A Belgian waffle and gluten-free pancakes were top-notch as well. A bonus: The staff is uniformly welcoming and efficient. Lunch served, too. Beer and wine served. Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2016 Bar Tulia, 462 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 228-7606 Do you love Chef Vincenzo Bertulias Osteria Tulia? Then try his second concept: Bar Tulia, a gastropub right next door. Here you can dine on small plates, pizzas, house-made sausage and other items that appeal to the creative chef in a rustic yet hip atmosphere thats clearly gained a following. Even the drinks are creative, like the Pigalle, a refreshing blend of St. Germain elderflower liqueur, prosecco, soda and lemon; and a Hurricane with three kinds of rum, passion fruit, bitters, grenadine and lime. Graze your way through the menu as we did: a generous plate of fresh ceviche; grilled octopus on greens and fingerling potatoes; a perfectly rendered pizza with house-made mozzarella and tomato sauce with fresh basil; grilled house sausage atop stewed white beans; deviled eggs with smoked trout roe; and a full-sized entre of salmon with roasted carrots and beets. For dessert, try the Sicilian waffle with caramelized bananas and maple bourbon almond truffle. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed May 2015 Figs Grille, 25987 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 390-1700 Four years after a memorable debut, Figs still upholds a high level of quality in food and service thanks undoubtedly to the impeccable standards of chef-owner Sam Tadros. The dining room remains lovely, with its beautiful wall tapestries, Moroccan-style lamps and rich palette of garnet and gold. Those whove only experienced calamari battered and fried may find Figs grilled version a happy revelation: Long tender tubes of squid are charred just enough to appeal to the eye and the taste buds then marinated in olive oil, garlic and fresh herbs. Fried shrimp were lightly breaded and garnished with delicious figs, mandarin orange-red onion relish and soy ginger glaze. Fig chutney and port wine sauce gave a quarter of a roasted duck a fruity flourish. A lightly sweet anisette-tinged beurre blanc proved a heavenly pairing for miso-marinated black cod, served with unexpected sides of spinach sauted with tomatoes and white beans and a crusty Parmesan-angel hair pasta cake. Desserts are made in house and worth the extra calories. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2015 TAG The American Gastropub, Coconut Point, 23161 Village Shops Way, Estero; 949-4300 The gastropub tag implies ampedup pub food in a casual but stylish setting, with craft beverages and reasonable prices. TAG is delivering most of that but could be more consistent. A sampling of trendy deviled eggs with fancy toppings revealed garnishes that were just too subtle to achieve the wow factor that can elevate these homey classics in the right hands. We were more impressed with the Prince Edward Island mussels steamed in beer broth seasoned with oranges and coriander and with ground and sliced chorizo tossed in. The combination of sweet fruit and warm spices worked well with the abundant shellfish. A basic burger was elevated by yummy bacon jam, and a salmon entre was perfectly cooked and nicely paired with succotash. Root beer-braised short ribs were impressively tender, but the johnnycakes served underneath were tough, dry and mealy (as was the crust of a deconstructed apple pie stuffed into a pint canning jar). Full bar.

A pizza with pesto, mushrooms, provolone, spinach and banana peppers was as tasty as it was beautiful.

Head east east on the Tamiami Trail, that is to Sugden Park Plaza, where the estimable Chef Asif Rasheed has opened a most impressive new Indian restaurant. Mr. Rasheed was born and raised in Northern India. While he was originally attracted to art and drawing, he eventually decided to become a chef, for which he also trained in India after completing a degree in hotel management and catering. All of that background perhaps explains the degree of care and elegance contained in 21 Spices. It is our good fortune that he changed his plans for a profession. The dining room, bar and patio are all elegantly outfitted, evidence of the chefs artful eye. The open kitchen is full of busy cooks conjuring up intensely aromatic dishes. Cool blue lights provide subtle highlights around the room, columns help break up the space and one wall boasts an artistic array of shelves displaying lovely teas and spices. Devotees of Indian cuisine will recognize some of the dishes on the menu lamb rogan josh, aloo gobi, chicken tikka, beef sheek kabob but there are dishes you dont encounter at the typical Indian restaurant, at least not in this area. Consider lobster mulligatawny soup, spicy shrimp and peanut mung salad, jhinga prawns, dumpukhy goat biryani and coconut laddoo (coconut truffles dipped in chocolate). As is usually the case at an Indian establishment, vegetarians will be thrilled by the range of choices they have, as the menu offers an abundance of meatless entrees without sacrificing flavor or substance. A problem, however, quickly becomes evident: There are too many intriguing dishes, making it extremely difficult to commit to just one. It was fortunate that I went with three companions instead of the usual one, which meant I could taste double the number of dishes I normally do. But even with four of us, choosing was hard. We finally settled on ghehra paani diver scallops ($14), palakwala chaat ($8), Progressive Chicken 65 ($8), and shahi baby lamb chops ($12) to start. You could see the chefs sense of artistry in the way the dishes were presented. The plump scallops looked like sculpted works of art nestled atop a mound of black lentils, with orange tomato jus and yellow pepper coulis. Lightly seared, they were tender and juicy, and paired well with the lentils. The chicken was the zestiest of the appetizers, coated in a seasonings including ginger, curry leaves, red chilies, onion, bell peppers and yogurt, the plate dotted with red and yellow sauces I believe had chili and curry in them. The chaat consisted of a generous mound of crisp fried baby spinach leaves intermingled with dates, tamarind and yogurt. Crunchy and full of flavor, the order was enough for two people to share as a starter. A trio of baby lamp chops arrived in a segmented plate so that each chop had its own space. They were perfectly cooked, moist and with just a hint of mint and mustard for enhancement. We shared these, too, and chewed them down to the bone. Entrees were as satisfying as the starters. Kohinoor of the ocean was a seafood medley featuring tandoori-grilled salmon, shrimp and a small lobster tail in a lively yogurt sauce containing chili, curry, cilantro and mint. Two people ordered this and it was a good thing, as one would not have been enough for everyone to eat their fill. Saffron chicken khorma ($18) was yet another imaginative chicken dish, this one containing almond cream, mint, coconut, tahini and saffron. I was delighted with my vegetarian dish, Nizams kofte ($18), tender vegetable and cheese dumplings simmered in a rich saffron reduction redolent with notes of coriander, lemon and its hard to say what other seasonings, as they wafted up together in a fragrant blend. All entrees come with either basmati rice or naan. We chose rice to soak up the sauce and ordered naan on the side. (We ordered one naan with dried fruits and nuts for $7 and a plain one for $4, but the plain never arrived. I only noticed wed been charged for it after we left.) The bread with the fruits and nuts was somewhat dry but worked all right with the sauces, the raisins and nuts adding some extra texture. Both of the desserts we sampled gulab jamun ($8) and gold leaf shahi tukda ($8) were excellent. The former were the classic sponge cake balls soaked in saffron rose cardamom syrup. They are very sweet, so one is usually enough to satisfy. The shahi tukda did have some edible gold leaf atop a firm slice of French toast, with custard, a bit of pistachio ice cream and raisins. Both were beautifully presented. A cup of Chef Asifs Masala chai ($4) was somewhat bland compared to others Ive tasted and in light of all of the lively dishes wed just enjoyed. Service was generally good. The staff was welcoming and our server worked hard to ensure that we understood what we were ordering and that we had everything we needed. Another plus here is that theres a creditable wine list. A bottle of Whispering Angel rose went well with the montage of seasonings in our meals. 21 Spices might be a little bit out of the way or at least not in the usual path of local food lovers.

Sienna Reserve offers custom luxury homes in North NaplesSingle-family residences from the mid-$600sSienna Reserve is a gated, single-family community of just 45 homes being developed by Zuckerman Homes in North Naples. Sales have been phenomenal. In fact, the community is already more than half sold. According to the Andy Zuckerman, President of Zuckerman Homes, a buyers ability to customize their Sienna Reserve home has been a major selling point, since that is something usually only offered in communities priced much higher. Everybodys lifestyle is different. They have different needs. They have different interests. They have different tastes, said Zuckerman. As a family run home building company, no one knows that better than we do. So, well do everything we can to customize a home to our buyers specifications. Eight floor plans can be customized at Sienna Reserve. The oneand twostory homes range in size from 2,344 to 4,971 square feet under air and have either three, four or five bedrooms with the majority also having a study. Some larger homes also offer a game room, a media room or a clubroom with one offering a game room and a media room. Prices currently start in the mid-$600s. Our floor plans were carefully designed to include the features and amenities todays single-family home buyer is looking for, said Zuckerman. But every buyer is unique. If they would like to customize a room or two, or need something incorporated into their new home, were more than happy to fulfill that wish. Zuckerman Homes has a list of the more popular changes buyers want to make. Many are interior changes. Others take place in the outdoor living area. Reconfiguring the base layout, such as enlarging bedrooms, bathrooms, leisure rooms, kitchens and garages are among the most requested, said Zuckerman. Were also seeing wine enthusiasts requesting built-in wine closets. Others are customizing cabinets and flooring. It really runs a wide gamut. That includes the outdoor living area where buyers are looking to, not only add pools, but enhance their lifestyle by adding summer kitchens and wet bars to their outdoor Florida room and patio areas. If a buyer can dream it we can provide it, exclaimed Zuckerman. Some of the customized changes buyers are requesting can be found in Sienna Reserves furnished models. The singlestory Hibiscus is fully-furnished, while the two-story Magnolia Flex will be furnished in early February, although visitors can tour it prior to its completion. The Hibiscus is a three-bedroom plus study/three-bath home with 2,566 square feet under air and 3,378 total square feet. The homes outdoor living area, which includes a covered Florida room offering plenty of space for enjoying a gourmet meal or entertaining friends, an outdoor summer kitchen and a pool and spa with a five foot high waterfall, are capturing the imaginations of the hundreds of visitors who have already toured the furnished model. Located immediately next door to the Hibiscus model is the Magnolia Flex model. The four-bedroom plus game room and media room/three full-bath/two halfbath home has 4,004 square feet under air and 4,855 total square feet. In mid-February, the communitys third and largest model will be completed. The twostory Rosewood is an incredible five-bedroom plus study and clubroom/five-and-ahalf-bath home with 4,971 square feet under air and 5,997 total square feet. Those visitors arriving at Sienna Reserve to tour the models are driving on the brick-paver drive a little more slowly than in the past. Thats because the communitys Grand Entrance was recently completed. Its definitely an attention grabber, said Zuckerman. The Grand Entrance includes a palmand flower-lined brick-paver drive, an impressive gatehouse and a majestic stone and marble privacy entry wall with cascading water feature and bubbling fountains. Several brick-paver roundabouts with water feature centerpieces are also positioned throughout Sienna Reserves picturesque and natural setting. Our research indicates buyers are looking for a small, more intimate community close to the city yet in harmony with nature, stated Zuckerman. Thats exactly what we deliver. Only 14 of Sienna Reserves 30 acres are being developed. The remaining 16 acres comprise of a freshwater lake and untouched nature preserve. All homes offer either a lake or preserve view with no two homes backing up to each other. Another reason for the communitys popularity is its close proximity to downtown Naples and its worldrenowned shopping districts of Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South. Its also within minutes of Mercato, one of the most popular upscale shopping centers in Southwest Florida. In addition, Sienna Reserve is close to the Gulf beaches, the Naples Pier, fine restaurants, Germain Arena, the site for many sporting and entertainment events, and the Southwest Florida International Airport.

Ronto transforms TwinEaglesIn 2007, TwinEagles in North Naples was known for its mesmerizing beauty and the caliber of its golf. It was considered one of Naples up and coming communities. When the real estate market collapsed in 2008, growth at TwinEagles subsided substantially. In 2009, The Ronto Group visited the property. What we saw was a community that was facing difficulties, said Ronto Executive Vice President Anthony Solomon. Underneath the cosmetic deficiencies, we saw a community that had great bones. It had what we believe is the best residential golf club in Southwest Florida with the Talon Course. It had natural beauty. It had a beautiful clubhouse. So we saw a great opportunity to reposition Twin Eagles, bring it back to its former glory and refocus it to being a true golfers community. In September, 2010, Ronto finalized its purchase. An aggressive strategy focused on creating a golf centric lifestyle within a traditional country club model was put into motion. The Talon golf course was regarded as the jewel of the community. Designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son, the Talon is regarded as the top residential course in Southwest Florida and will host the ACE Group Classic PGA Champions Tour event in February. The second course, however, was not up to Rontos standards. They worked with golf course architect Steve Smyers to create a new course. When the Eagle course opened, it was named Best New U.S. Private Course of the Year by Golf Magazine. Ronto recognized that TwinEagles needed amenities to complement its clubhouse. The 47,000 square-foot clubhouse pays homage to St. Andrews where the game of golf was born. The Clubhouses wrap-around verandahs overlook preserve views and the finishing holes of both courses and offers one of the finest dining experiences in Southwest Florida. Award-winning Executive Chef Chas Tatigian serves varied menu accompanied by a selection from an outstanding wine list. Ronto designed and built a new resortstyle swimming pool and fitness center. A 2,500 square foot pool with a spa, zeroentry feature, and a sunning deck overlook a lake. An outdoor Tiki lounge and dining venue and lighted Har-Tru tennis courts are adjacent to the pool. The 6,430 square feet fitness center was designed to complement the Clubhouse architecture. The floor plan includes an expansive fitness hall that houses state-of-the-art exercise equipment. Ronto also enhanced the walking paths that meander through the community as well as the neighborhood parks and gardens that dot the landscape. To solidify TwinEagles golf centric lifestyle even further, Ronto took a bold step that has enhanced the value of ownership. We created a unique golf membership program, said Solomon. From the time we took over, we included a golf membership with every newly constructed home sale. We created great value for home owners within the community because the membership is attached to the home and transfers. By doing this, we assured the long term viability and success of the club that will ultimately be transferred to the owners at no cost at sellout. Rontos efforts eventually paid off. After just 28 sales in their first two years, things shifted dramatically in 2013 when 65 sales were processed. That was followed by 95 sales in 2014 and a similar number in 2015 when sales volume totaled $135,593,428. Buyers started to understand what we were building here, and to appreciate the value of what we had to offer, said Van Osborne who has been Sales Manager at TwinEagles since August, 2012. Ronto kept its promises, enhanced the value of Twin Eagles with the addition of the Eagle Golf Course and the amenity center, transformed the initial impression of the community by re-doing the entry and arrival sequence, and enrolled several outstanding builders who deliver a superior product. The golf membership program has been huge from a sales standpoint. Our residential product offering ranges from $300,000 into the millions. Where else can you purchase a $300,000 home with a membership at a club the caliber of TwinEagles? Another factor in TwinEagles resurgence has been the commercial development along the Immokalee Road corridor east of Interstate 75. When we came to TwinEagles, they were just finishing the widening of Immokalee Road, said Solomon. You could see the commercial development gaining momentum. The growth along Immokalee Road has been tremendous. Were getting more shopping centers, more restaurants, and medical buildings. NCH has opened a mini-hospital/emergency center and an imaging center. Five of TwinEagles neighborhoods are now sold out. To meet the demand for ownership within the community, Ronto introduced three new neighborhoods in 2015. At the same time, it has preserved and enhanced TwinEagles legacy of refined estate living. TwinEagles was known for the caliber of its estate living experience, said Osborne. Grand estate residences were built in neighborhoods at the front of the community. Six of those sites remain available. Ronto expanded TwinEagles estate home offering with the introduction of the Hedgestone and Lake Estates neighborhoods. The other part of the changing face of the community is, obviously, the addition of Minto Floridas Dundee neighborhood and Lennars Kinross neighborhood that offer a final opportunity to purchase residences at their respective price points. Were very pleased with the sales pace that we have, said Solomon. It is certainly much better than we expected when we bought TwinEagles and wed be very happy to keep the pace that we have over the next few years.

These before and after photos provide an indication of how The Ronto Group has transformed TwinEagles, including the completion of the Eagle golf course, the introduction of new neighborhoods, and the dramatically increased number of completed homes.
