Myers, Sarasota, Tarpon Springs and Pinellas Park Availabl a Ma e Bo erb Furnitur! COMMENTARYBusiness lottoThe headline unfurled like a banner across a recent article appearing in the business section of the daily newspaper. It read, Florida The Future is Here. The story announces Enterprise Florida Inc.s newest branding initiative. Enterprise Florida Inc. is the states chief economic development organization, touted as a public-private partnership between Floridas business and government leaders. According to the agencys website, its mission is to grow and diversify Floridas economy through job creation; and it undertakes and sponsors programs with funding from the state and the private sector. The agency says its new campaign will talk up Florida as the ideal place to start, grow or move businesses. It targets international and domestic companies and companies already operating in the state. The campaign messaging will reflect Floridas strength as a home for business, encouraging people to see the state in a whole new light that debunks preconceived views. To wit, Florida is optimistic, innovative, original and imaginative with world-class infrastructure, global access and a highly educated workforce. Sounds great, you think, but there is no mention by the EFI of the preconceived notions the marketing effort is designed to debunk. There must have been an inhouse discussion in prologue to the agencys future is here offense; perhaps an extensive brainstorming session among the EFI board and staff led by a highly paid consultant. They assemble around a polished table the size of a shuffle board court. They are key questions to consider: What preconceived views must Florida overcome to pump up its business-friendly reputation? What will put Florida in the lead of the pack of states competing for corporate trophies using generous sweeteners to close their deals? The group works enthusiastically. Floridas job killing characteristics cover the flip charts like flies on a corpse: taxes, regulations, organized labor, pay equity, minimum wage, workers comp, fair employment, public education, open records, zoning, occupational safety and health, crumbling infrastructure, ignorant crackers, illegal immigrants, liberals, local government, environmentalists, the federal government, gay rights, job benefits, entitlement programs, fair employment, land-use permits, etc., etc., etc. Solutions must be devised to confound this terrible negativity. Consensus comes quickly. To achieve world class status and overcome pesky impediments to a more favorable business climate, Florida must be super, super friendly to businesses; and nothing saves love like government cash. They decide a $250 million slush fund will change corporate hearts and minds, providing corporate enterprises generous gifts of public subsidy to establish or expand their business in the state. Certainly job creation contracts will require companies to create a certain number of jobs. But of course. The simulation there will be accountability for public dollars invested wards off the naysayers who challenge the assumption it is absolutely necessary for the state to be dispensing copious amounts of tax dollars for this purpose. They reason, if it is true, as EFI says, that Florida is optimistic, innovative, original and imaginative with world-class infrastructure, global access and a highly educated workforce, Florida already possesses excellent incentives for companies to grow their business here; and if the state requires businesses pay their fair share of taxes, Florida can only improve upon creating jobs and improving job quality, too. Sure, help where needed but dont go overboard with corporate tax giveaways. But a term-limited lawmaker doesnt worry any further than the length of his or her tenure about the cost/benefit ratio of cutting business deals with publicly funded resources. Thats too bad. It is often years before taxpayers know the full price of public investment in companies in exchange for promises of job creation and/or economic growth. Think the Marlin Stadium, Digital Domain, the Vaccine & Gene Therapy Institute of Florida or perhaps you have your own favorite debacle. Better yet, just ask Jeb Bush. In 2003, as former governor, Bush supported a $500 million public investment to lure the Scripps Research Institute to Florida. It was defended as the states down payment to establish a biomedical hub projected to generate 50,000 jobs in 15 years. Now, more than a decade and $1.3 billion later in public funding, the actual results are far more modest than proposed. Those flourishing bio corridors? They mostly dont exist. For every successful public-private, job creation venture, there are the mangled remains of deals gone bad that failed to fulfil the promises made to justify public investment. Greater prudence is warranted. The proposed EFI Florida Enterprise Fund before the state Legislature will allow deals over $1 million to be authorized with just three signatures: Floridas speaker of the House, the president of the Florida Senate and the governor. This handily eliminates the necessity of special committees to be involved in the approval process. Keep it streamlined, they say: Three powerful, ambitious politicians; a fat, publicly funded checkbook almost exclusively for their use; an unlimited array of corporate cronies from which to pick winners and losers; and prize payouts from an account that functions like a state-funded business lottery.

The medias preferred description of the average Republican voter has often been the angry white male. This was crudely simplistic and meant to be pejorative. If the press wants to update the descriptor, it should refer to the despairing white male. Or more accurately, the despairing white working class. White working-class life in America has been in a slow-motion disintegration for decades, and it shows. The white working class is an archipelago of hopelessness. It is in a funk about the economy (almost 80 percent think we are still in a recession) and, more fundamentally, the American future. According to the American Values Survey conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute, only about 40 percent of the white working class say the countrys best days are ahead. This is not only lower than college-educated whites (53 percent), but much lower than blacks (60 percent) and Hispanics (56 percent). It is astonishing to think that the white working class has a dimmer view of the nations future than blacks, who have been historically discriminated against and still lag badly on almost every socioeconomic indicator. As noted by the National Journals acute analyst Ronald Brownstein, a survey for The Pew Charitable Trusts picked up the same finding a few years ago. It asked people whether they expected to be better off in 10 years. Whereas two-thirds of blacks and Hispanics said yes, only 44 percent of whites without a college degree said the same. We are conditioned by the media to be obsessed with race, when class is an increasingly important divider. (No one ever earnestly says on a cable-TV show that we need to have a conversation about class in America.) The class divide among whites shows up again and again on questions about the fairness of the country. The American Values Survey finds that white working-class Americans distrust institutions like the government and business more than collegeeducated whites do; they are more likely to think that their vote doesnt matter because of the influence of wealthy interests; they are more likely to think that hard work doesnt necessarily lead to success. There is a sense among workingclass whites that America has gone off the rails, and has been that way for a long time. Sixty-two percent of them say American culture has gotten worse since the 1950s. Besides the economic battering that lower-skilled workers have taken in recent decades, the working class is increasingly disconnected from the institutions that lend meaning and hope to peoples lives: marriage, the workforce, churches and other institutions of civil society. They believe that the long-standing American promise of a country where children are better off than their parents has been betrayed, and they sense that their time is past a sense reinforced by a pop culture that tends to consider them afterthoughts, or fitting subjects for mockery. Although smaller than it once was, the white working class remains about 40 percent of the electorate. Its travails cant and wont be ignored.

In 2003, a UPI article reported that an al-Qaida operative (does not rule out) using Sarin gas and poisoning drinking water in U.S. and Western cities. Where the terrorists have failed to mount any attack on a water supply, the Michigan state government has succeeded. In the city of Flint, lead-poisoned water has been piped into homes and offices since 2014, causing widespread illness and potentially permanent brain damage among its youngest residents. Michigan has one of the most severe emergency manager laws in the country, allowing the governor to appoint an unelected agent to take over local governments when those locales or institutions have been deemed to be in a financial emergency. Republican Gov. Rick Snyder pushed for and obtained two bills that strengthened the law, and has used it aggressively to impose his version of fiscal austerity on cities like Detroit, Benton Harbor, several large school districts and, now most notoriously, on Flint. In every case but one, the emergency manager has taken over cities that are majority AfricanAmerican. The emergency manager is granted sweeping powers to override local, democratically elected governments and to make cuts to budgets, sell public property, cancel or renegotiate labor contracts and essentially govern like a dictator. In April 2014, Darnell Earley, the fourth of five Flint emergency managers appointed by Snyder, unilaterally decided to switch Flints water source from Detroits water system, with water from Lake Huron that they had been using for 50 years, to the long-contaminated Flint River. Flint residents immediately noticed discoloration and bad smells from the water, and experienced an array of health impacts, like rashes and hair loss. In October 2014, General Motors decided it would no longer use Flint city water in its plants, as it was corroding metal car parts. Later, trihalomethanes, a toxic byproduct of water treatment, were found in the water. Despite that, the water was declared safe by officials. At the same time, as revealed in an email later obtained by Progress Michigan, the state began shipping coolers of clean, potable water to the state office building in Flint. This was more than a year before Gov. Snyder would admit that the water was contaminated. Ongoing activism by Flint residents whose children were sick attracted the involvement of water researchers from Virginia Tech, who found that 10,000 residents had been exposed to elevated lead levels. It took out-of-state researchers from Virginia to travel all the way to Michigan to conduct the comprehensive tests needed. Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha then got involved. She is the director of the pediatric residency program at Hurley Childrens Hospital and assistant professor of pediatrics at Michigan State University. She discovered an alarming connection between rising blood lead levels in Flints children with the switch to the Flint River as a water source. The percentage of children with elevated lead levels doubled in the whole city, and in some neighborhoods, it tripled, she told us on the Democracy Now! news hour. And it directly correlated with where the water lead levels were the highest. Rather than going after the problem she identified, the state went after her. We were attacked, she recalled. I was called an unfortunate researcher, that I was causing near hysteria, that I was splicing and dicing numbers, and that the state data was not consistent with my data. And as a scientist ... when the state, with a team of 50 epidemiologists, tells you youre wrong, you second-guess yourself. Within weeks, state authorities were forced to admit she was right. Soon after, she was standing at the governors side, and has just been appointed to run a new public health initiative to help those exposed to the contamination. A chorus of Flint residents and allies are demanding immediate action to ensure safe, clean water to the people of Flint. Many are calling for Gov. Snyder to resign, or even to be arrested. The FBI and the Justice Department are now investigating to see if any laws were broken. This week, the House held a hearing on the crisis, during which Houston Congressmember Sheila Jackson Lee compared the poisoning of Flint residents to the 1978 mass suicide and murder in Jonestown, Guyana. There, cult leader Jim Jones ordered his 900 followers, 300 of them children, to drink cyanide-laced Kool-Aid. Those victims died instantly. In Flint, the tragedy will unfold over decades.

She is the co-author, with Denis Moynihan, of The Silenced Majority, a New York Times best-seller. i c l H i c f rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly

ROOTED IN NAPLESMelissa Manchester: Loving the life she sings aboutA sad thing about growing older is watching musical acts from your youth disappear from the media stream that brought them into your life. Its a sad day when you realize that not only do you have crows feet, but also that No Doubt released an album a year earlier and you didnt even know about it. You remember the MTV frenzy over Tragic Kingdom and how you had to beg your parents for months to let you attend a concert only to be accompanied by your dad, who mercilessly (and wrongly) compared Gwen Stefani to Madonna. But thats what happens to the good acts because they keep working once the spotlight moves on. They mature past the glitz the entertainment industry casts on them to create art that grows with their core audience. They get even better with time, experience and years of practice. Such is the case for Melissa Manchester, the singer/songwriter who made it big on the music scene in the late 1970s with her platinum-selling song, Midnight Blue. Over the last few decades, she has either written or performed sometimes both many Adult Contemporary hits, among them Dont Cry Out Loud and Through the Eyes of Love. Powerhouses like Barbra Streisand, Roberta Flack, Alison Krauss and many others have recorded her songs. Ms. Manchester makes a stop in Naples to perform her standards and selections from her newest album, You Gotta Love the Life, at 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Feb. 18-19. TheatreZone is bringing the concerts to G&L Theatre at Community School of Naples. After 40 years in the music business, much of it highly productive and commercially successful, Ms. Manchester cut an album that pays tribute to the wisdom that comes from devoting her life to show business. This album couldnt have come a minute before it came, she said, adding, You Gotta Love the Life is really that macroand microcosm, realizing with time and maturity that talent is only the point of departure. Talent is that central nugget, but its the reality of the life and the grind that you face very single day. You have to be OK with this version of normal. Its really not for anybody who has any reservations. She put all her experience to good use when she broke free of the standard record label paradigm to raise money for You Gotta Love The Life through a crowdfunding campaign. Her first complete release since 2004, she recorded the album at Citrus College in Glendora, Calif., where she is an honorary artist in residence. This is not an adventure I would have wanted to miss, she said, add she loved being liberated from traditional record company deals where you make the music and the label bankrolls it for which Im eternally grateful but then they own it after theyve made all their money back. Catching her TheatreZone performance is an adventure Im sure her longtime fans wont want to miss either. When an artist starts her career with a Grammy Award and keeps working almost 40 years after, where does she go? What does she have up her sleeve? The freedom of longtime career success cut loose from a record label is an exciting prospect for baby boomers who have listened to her hits and her collaborators for years. Now Im just hoping that No Doubt will make it to Naples in 20 years. If a real love survives a rock-steady vibe, how did Lindsey Nesmith miss a No Doubt tour?

A8 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 11-17, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYthat an African American might seriously aspire to the White House was extraordinary, to say the least, and Mr. Jacksons outsized personality further piqued the widespread interest and curiosity. The newspaper I worked for at the time assigned me to chronicle the loquacious candidates quixotic pursuit; I spent 17 days traveling with him. I got to know him just a bit during this time, and so it came to pass that on a late-night flight from Los Angeles to Chicago, as he nursed glasses of apple juice and I did likewise with tumblers of Jack Daniels, our conversation turned to matters more personal than political. As is so often the case, when two or more Southerners come together, either by choice or as in this case by happenstance, the talk turned to coming of age in Dixie. Our experiences differed. I am white, for starters, and I was born in 1949, making me eight years Mr. Jacksons junior. I came from a stable family of means rooted in Decatur, Georgia, an agreeable suburb of Atlanta. Mr. Jackson was born out of wedlock in rural Greenville, South Carolina, to a 16-year-old woman who had fallen prey to the charms of a 33-year-old married neighbor. Discrimination and racism things I had witnessed but only from the standpoint of the oppressors were hallmarks of his early existence. Mr. Jackson told me he was convinced, as a youth, that if he escaped Jim Crows pernicious thrall, he could make his mark. And so, with great enthusiasm, he had accepted a football scholarship to the University of Illinois. Finally, he had what he so desperately wanted: a paid ticket out of the benighted South. His high hopes were dashed, quickly and rudely. He learned that even in the enlightened North, not everyone was enamored with the prospect of a black quarterback leading the Fighting Illini. Even more searing was his experience when he auditioned for the debate team. The coach told him that despite his obvious rhetorical gifts, he never would be regarded as a serious speaker until he had shed his Southern Negro accent. Dismayed and disheartened, Mr. Jackson left the University of Illinois after one year and transferred to North Carolina A&T, a predominantly black institution. It was a move that only months earlier would have seemed incomprehensible. I was totally unprepared for the hypocrisy of the North, he said. In the South, you knew who your enemies were because they would tell you, to your face, exactly what they thought. I did not like that, but I could deal with it better than the backstabbing in the North.Dark and edgy timesMr. Jacksons experience mirrors the agonizing ambivalence that many native Southerners of my generation, both black and white, feel about the region. There was much to love about the South of the 1950s and s, my formative years. But there was plenty to scorn as well. During those two decades, the Deep South was a dark and edgy place as white Southerners realized they were on the losing end of yet another great war, although this one was a conflict involving cultural and social values and not military in nature. There was a palpable sense of foreboding and outright fear that I could detect, even as a child. Brown v. Board of Education (the 1954 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that outlawed segregation in public schools), the sit-ins at restaurants and lunch counters, the influx of Northern civil rights workers (who were seen as lineal descendants of the hated carpetbaggers), the voter-registration drives, the marches that featured the singing of We Shall Overcome and the election of John F. Kennedy in 1960 were signal events that devastated the Southern psyche as surely as the capitulation at Appomattox had nearly 100 years before. The widespread loathing of JFK came about through a confluence of circumstances that absolutely terrified white Southerners. He was thought to be a liberal on racial matters, he was a New England Yankee and he was a Roman Catholic (Georgia, in particular, has a long, shameful history of anti-Catholicism), which meant that many Southerners believed his principal allegiance was to the Vatican and not to the United States. When President Kennedys death was announced at my high school, scattered cheers echoed in the corridors. I didnt know Lady Bird (Lyndon Johnsons wife) was that good of a shot, quipped one of my teachers upon learning of the assassination. When we returned to school after that long weekend of grieving, another teacher told me the wall-to-wall television coverage of the assassination and its aftermath was annoying and unnecessary. The guys dead, this molder of young minds said. What more is there to say? Lets move on to something else.Familial eccentricitiesMy family was not immune to the hysteria that roiled the South as the civil rights era unfolded. I didnt think much of it, to be honest, because most families I knew succumbed to some degree. I vividly recollect hearing in the early 1960s a mild-mannered and seemingly reasonable uncle ask a gathering of relatives who had assembled in our living room: When is somebody going to put a bullet in that niggers head? He was referring to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Not too many years later, James Earl Ray did precisely that. As a rule, though, the expressions of defiance emanating from my home were more absurd than hateful. When racial violence reached alarming proportions in Alabama, civil rights leaders called for a boycott of the jams and jellies manufactured and sold under the Bama label. Upon hearing this, my father dispatched my mother to the grocery store to buy every Bama product she could find. For months, the weight of these fruit spreads strained the shelves of our pantry, which had come to resemble a Bama warehouse. (A word here about my mother, Mildred Estelle Hall Cornwell, a lover of poetry and language who died in 1968 at the age of 58. She came from a sensible Southern family. Her father was a doctor in Atlanta who pioneered the use of radium in treating cancer. She shared little of my fathers Confederate zeal and seemed to view his effusions with a mixture of bemusement and goodnatured resignation. Shortly before their marriage, her future mother-in-law, my grandmother, told her: Youve got to understand one thing about the Cornwell men. Theyre peculiar.) Another symbolic display of contrariness undertaken by my dad was his refusal to recognize Memorial Day. Never mind that he served with distinction in India and Burma in World War II and that he had retired from the Army Reserves as a full colonel. In his mind, Memorial Day, which was originally conceived in 1868 as a means of honoring the Union dead, was something to be SOUTHERNFrom page 1RON GALELLA, LTD. / WIREIMAGEThe Rev.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 11-17, 2016 NEWS A9hallowed only by Yankees. But he did celebrate Confederate Memorial Day, an observance concocted by a gaggle of little old ladies in Columbus, Georgia, in 1866, a full two years before the Northern version came into being. These familial eccentricities did not seem odd or even out of the ordinary. It was life, as I knew it. The awareness that something might be amiss in the society in which I lived did not begin to dawn until I was in my middle and late teens, and even then I took no righteous, principled stands. To have openly denounced the inequities of the day would have required courage far beyond my limited capacity.Racism resurgenceSome might assert that revisiting those woeful days in the South is a thrashing of the proverbial dead horse. Nothing can be gained from such an undertaking at this late date, these naysayers reason. To those who put forth that argument, I say: Open your eyes and look around. There is an undeniable resurgence of racial animus, religious intolerance and xenophobic fervor that parallels much of what I witnessed in Georgia all those many years ago. This time, though, the contagion is not contained to a geographic region. It is a national epidemic. Many of the long-gone political demagogues of the Deep South, such as George C. Wallace, the pugnacious, race-baiting governor of Alabama, would undoubtedly find receptive and appreciative audiences in 21st century America. When things turn ugly (as they have now), it helps to look back in order to see where we may be headed.Disrespect is everywhereAbout three years after my conversation with Jesse Jackson aboard that airliner, I landed a job as an editor in California at one of the largest newspapers on the West Coast, where Southerners were as abundant as Eskimos. Shortly after I arrived, my boss invited me to lunch. We discussed various aspects of my new position. Toward the end of the meal, he said he wanted to broach something sensitive and hoped I wouldnt take offense. He said that seven people already working at the paper had wanted my job, and they were bitterly disappointed at being passed over, especially so since I the eventual hire had been imported from the hinterlands of Alabama. The last point, that I was a soft-spoken Southerner with a pronounced drawl, was especially galling to many within the newsroom, he said. Southerner plus drawl equates to redneck in the minds of many people, he explained. What he told me came as no surprise; I had long been accustomed to the Southerner-as-hick conflation. Theyre going to test you, to see if youre smart enough, tough enough for the job, he went on. I just thought you should know. He was right. I was confronted early and often. On one occasion, I held open the door to the companys cafeteria so the classical music critic an imperious, imposing woman with a phony-baloney British accent could pass ahead of me. A Southern man always holds the door for a woman. No exceptions. I open my own goddamn doors, Mr. Alabama, she said in a voice loud enough to edify everyone within earshot. Stung and embarrassed, the only reply I could muster was, I beg your pardon. I mistook you for a lady. I had been conditioned to expect slights based on Southern heritage. Disrespect, my father warned, lurked around every corner, and my antennae were forever raised. As a result, I am certain that over the years I have taken umbrage to innocent remarks that were in no way intended to offend.Important insultsWhen I was a child, our family took a vacation to Washington, D.C. My father was a prominent mortgage banker in Atlanta, and he spent considerable time dealing with elites and congressional leaders in Washington. Despite his small-town upbringing, a rube he was not. To the contrary, my dad was impeccable in his manners and his dress and a world traveler who explored the Himalayas on horseback well after he had celebrated his 70th birthday. He was a man of towering intelligence. He had studied engineering and architecture at Georgia Tech, held a law degree and was featured in an article in The New York Times Magazine, which proclaimed him to be one of the foremost amateur genealogists in the United States. He also was tough, blunt-spoken and demanding of others (just ask anyone who worked for him), but his spirit and heart held not a trace of meanness, which made his hard-line, uncompromising and sometimes racially repugnant Confederate outpourings a puzzle to many who knew him. One night in D.C. we went to a fancy restaurant he favored, and at the end of the meal a finger bowl was set before him. The waiter said, Sir, please do not drink that water, it is for moistening your fingers. Well, that set Dad off. The resulting explosion drew the maitre d, the general manager and finally the owner to our table. Despite profuse apologies, my father could not, would not, be mollified. After several minutes of extreme unpleasantness, my parents, my older sister and I stalked out of the restaurant as unceremoniously as Robert E. Lee had retreated from Gettysburg. That waiter intentionally insulted me because he knew I was from the South, Dad said later. He thinks Southerners have never seen a finger bowl! As I matured, I came to understand my fathers maniacal Southern pride was a logical consequence of his being reared in Monticello, Georgia, about 60 COURTESY FLORIDA MEMORYSurvivors of the Battle of Olustee at the dedication of the battlefield monument in 1912 at Olustee, Fla.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 11-17, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYCOURTESY PHOTOThe Lorraine Motel, where Dr. King was assassinated, is now the site of the National Civil Rights Museum.miles southeast of Atlanta on the fringe of the Great Gnat Belt. Monticello in 1907, the year of my fathers birth, was a town of fewer than 2,000 people. It had been plundered and terrorized by Union forces in 1864 as part of Gen. William Tecumseh Shermans infamous March to the Sea. More than four decades later, the hostility townsfolk felt toward Yankees, blacks and outsiders remained strong. Monticello was relatively prosperous in my fathers early years, thanks largely to King Cotton. Jasper County, of which Monticello is the seat, had some 70,000 acres devoted to the growing of the crop, and nearly 36,000 bales were produced annually. The good times ended in 1915, when the boll weevil cottons Kryptonite made its way to Georgia and Monticellos fields were laid bare. This outwardly placid little town was actually a place that countenanced stunning explosions of racially motivated violence, none of which, thankfully, directly involved my forebears. Between 1885 and 1920, 12 people were lynched in Monticello. That number included 11 African Americans (nine men and two women) and one white man, according to statistics compiled by the Georgia Lynching Project at Emory University in Atlanta. No one was arrested or tried for any of these murders, although in a place that small the identities of the perpetrators had to be known to just about everyone, including my kinfolk. On the evening of Jan. 14, 1914, less than one month before my fathers 8th birthday, Monticello was home to of one of the worst racial atrocities in the history of the Deep South. One hundred white men stormed the county jail and removed a black man and his three grown children (a son and two daughters), who were held on charges of assaulting the white police chief who had arrested them for bootlegging. They were hanged and their bodies then tattooed with fusillades of bullets. The father died last, and it was a calculated move. His executioners wanted him to witness the deaths of his children.Bitterness foreverConfederate war veterans were living and active when my father was a boy. He often recalled listening, wide-eyed and thrilled, to their tales of bloody battles in which Rebel soldiers were transformed into knights-errant, not at all unlike the chivalrous heroes who enlivened the writings of Sir Walter Scott, the Scottish author who was wildly popular in the Confederate South. A central character in many of these stories passed along by the geriatric Southern warriors was my great-grandfather, William Dawson Cornwell the Ivanhoe of Central Georgia, if you will. Known widely as Captain Billy, he was tall, trim and Rhett Butler-handsome. Billy, all agreed, cut a dashing figure in his dress grays. In 1864, at the savage Battle of Olustee in Florida, Billy sustained a serious chest wound and was sent home to Monticello to recuperate and sit out the rest of the war. A few weeks later, he somehow mustered the strength to return to his outfit (Company A, 32nd Georgia Infantry) visibly diminished but determined to fight to the very end, which he did. His bloodstained battle sword, passed from generation to generation, remains the most sacred artifact in the Cornwell family. (It is now in the possession of my son, who, irony of ironies, lives in Massachusetts.) After the war, Billy took up residence with his family on land near what is now Lake Jackson, just outside of Monticello. He fell into a deep depression and brooded over the Southern defeat. Frail and old beyond his years, Billys bitterness toward the North and the freed slaves festered. It also infected generations of Cornwells to come. The chest wound my great-grandfather received at Olustee did not heal properly, rendering him prone to chronic respiratory ailments; it was the proximate cause of the pneumonia that finally killed him, in 1889 at the age of 53.Family pilgrimagesThe idolatry affixed to the Confederacy was in no way unique to the Cornwell clan, and it remains a distinctive part of Southern culture to this day, as recent flaps over the Confederate flag and Civil War monuments vividly illustrate. What differentiates white Southerners who defend Confederate symbols from the rest of us is their devotion to a heritage they perceive as being much more noble than it really was, David Niose, former president of the American Humanist Association, wrote last year in Psychology Today. There seems to be a sense that, because ancestors fought with honor for a cause they passionately believed, nothing else matters in assessing the historical legitimacy of the Confederate cause. Billys homestead at the river outlasted him by more than 100 years. It stood until the land changed hands a few years back and the new owners tore it down. The old place and its inhabitants had seen a lot: a civil war, Reconstruction, malaria outbreaks and even a violent earthquake in 1886 that left a long, jagged crack in the chimney. It was, I always thought, a rotting, forlorn monument to Captain Billy and his Lost Cause. My father and I made periodic pilgrimages to Billys place. These journeys became increasingly fraught with tension as I grew older. I was changing, and my father sensed it, although he never would have guessed the extent of those changes.Uneven segregationBy age 15, I along with two likeminded friends, Robert Vining and Jimmy Leonard was sneaking off to catch late-night shows at Atlantas Royal Peacock, the Souths most famous African American nightclub. While many of my contemporaries were smitten by the Beatles and other groups associated with The British Invasion, I favored black soul artists. Every notable rhythm-and-blues performer of the 1960s Otis Redding, Jackie Wilson, Ray Charles and Chuck Jackson, to name but a few performed there. It was at the Peacock (whose management blessedly never asked us to produce IDs proving that we were legally entitled to be there) that I first sampled Scotch and danced with a woman of color. More often than not, Robert, Jimmy and I were the only white faces in the place, and although racial tensions were high, none of the black patrons who were, on average, 15 to 20 years older than us ever utter ed an unkind word to the three white kids from suburbia. Decatur, Georgia, when I was growing up, was not a hotbed of fervent racism, but that is not to say it was a citadel of tolerance. Those not raised in the South in the 1950s and s wrongly assume that every town or city was as violent and extreme as Birmingham, Ala., or Philadelphia, Miss. That is simply untrue. Former New York Times Executive Editor Howell Raines, an Alabama native and an astute historian of the 20th century South, nailed it when he observed that outsiders tend to think that segregation existed in a uniform way throughout the Solid South. But it didnt. Segregation was rigid in some places, relaxed in others; leavened with humanity in some places, enforced with unremitting brutality in others. Decatur was one of those places where segregation was indeed relaxed (and) leavened with humanity. My high school, for example, integrated peacefully and without incident during my junior year. Black students may not have been welcomed with open arms, but they were not overtly stigmatized or subjected to abuse. Yes, there were stray, hurtful comments hurled their way, but crude behavior was by no means widespread, nor was it condoned by the schools administration or most white students. The whites were upset by the disruption of their social order, to be sure, but unlike other areas of the South, the people of Decatur grudgingly resigned SOUTHERNFrom page 9 COURTESY PHOTOAbove: Congress of Racial Equality and members of All Souls Church, Unitarian, in Washington, D.C., march in memory of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing victims.

The most outward manifestation of intolerance I can recall was a Ku Klux Klan rally held downtown when I was in grammar school. It was well attended, but many of those who showed up seemed to be curiosity seekers, not hardcore Klan disciples. This relative tranquility might have come about because Decaturs black residents chose not to provoke or test the white majority. Perhaps they were resigned to their dismal circumstances. I dont know. Had widespread demonstrations and calls for change emanated from Decaturs black community, who knows what the response would have been. For the most part, however, Decatur was a calm, quiet place, with its silent and largely unseen black residents confined to their cramped, rundown space, while their white counterparts occupied and controlled everything else.Spurring transformation Two things accelerated my disillusionment with Southern society. The first was the bombing in 1963 of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham. Four young black girls (all about my age) were killed that Sunday morning, blown to kingdom come by a bomb planted by Klansmen. The sheer brutality of this act was too great to comprehend. Many white Southerners speculated and I heard this with my own ears that niggers, egged on by outside agitators, bombed the church themselves to stir up trouble and get sympathy. It was a theory born of cynicism and hate that, even at the tender age of 14, I simply could not buy. The second transformational occurrence involved a book by John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley. In 1960, Mr. Steinbeck and his dog, Charley, set out on a journey across America in a camper. I must have been 15 or so when I read it. Although Travels with Charley is light fare when held up against The Grapes of Wrath, Of Mice and Men, East of Eden and The Winter of Our Discontent, in one portion of the book Mr. Steinbeck describes his encounters with screeching white women who were protesting integration in New Orleans. The vile racial slurs and frenzied behavior he recounted were oh-so familiar. Something Im not sure what about seeing it spelled out on the printed page filled me with shame and regret. By the time I reached my senior year in high school, I had come to view my surroundings as something akin to a federal minimum-security prison: fairly comfortable, but confining nonetheless. I never talked to my Dad about our rapidly diverging views because I knew neither of us were going to change. In retrospect, that was a mistake on my part. I should have at least made the effort. In 1975, I was working as a newspaper reporter in Birmingham. The church bombing, which remained unsolved at that time, still haunted me. I wrote a long piece for The Nation magazine detailing how Alabama authorities, who were sympathetic to the Ku Klux Klan, had thwarted the FBIs investigation into this act of domestic terrorism. It was my first published work in a national publication. My father, who did not approve of news reporting that cast the South in an unfavorable light, never acknowledged the articles existence. I dont even know if he ever looked at the copy of the magazine I gave to him.Give and takeId like to think that for members of my generation who are given to thoughtful introspection, the positives of the Southern experience the emphasis on manners and family, the courtliness, the respect for elders, the music, the sumptuous artery-clogging food, the grand tradition of storytelling and literature, the crisp fall afternoons spent in college football stadiums, the rich sense of history and place outweigh the historical negatives, some of which remain unresolved. An intrepid interviewer once asked Winston Churchill if his immoderate use of intoxicating beverages had diminished him in any way. His reply: I have taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of me. On balance, Id say as with Sir Winstons distilled spirits I have taken more out of the South than the South has taken out of me. But it is a close call.

VISIT OUR NEW STORES Reviewing the sea turtle scoreboard for 2015 BY KATHY WORLEYSpecial to Florida WeeklyJust like my favorite football team, the Denver Broncos, during Super Bowl 50, sea turtles are a winner, as their nesting numbers are trending upward. I recently attended the sea turtle permit holders meeting in Jacksonville, where basically a lot of people gathered to talk turtles and discuss the 2015 highlights and players of the year. The main players that take to our beaches every year are the loggerhead (Caretta caretta), the green turtle (Chelonia mydas) and the leatherback (Dermochelys coriacea). We dont see much of either the hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata) or the Kemps ridley (Lepidochelys kempii), as they tend to nest outside of Florida. All five species are listed as either threatened or endangered under the Endangered Species Act, and nesting occurs in all Florida coastal counties except in the Big Bend area. Like any game, there are rules (in our case, disclaimers) regarding the 2015 nesting season: Since human referees cant possibly monitor nesting activity in all arenas, the nesting totals represent a minimum estimate. The effort and frequency of nest monitoring differs throughout Florida, so all games are not equal and many of the players are not accounted for. All arenas are not equal. Some beaches are accreting and thus have more nesting area, while others are eroding and can accommodate fewer nesting turtles. Certain teams have a higher following, as fans survey efforts are targeted principally during the time that loggerheads usually nest. Green turtles and leatherbacks have overlapping, but different nesting seasons, thus they are not fully represented in the data. There is a good possibility that faulty scores occur. It is difficult to determine how successful a nest actually is and how many hatchlings touchdown in the Atlantic or Gulf of Mexico; errors may appear in the final scoreboard. According to all accounts, however, 2015 saw a bumper crop of sea turtle nests. Green sea turtles had a phenomenal season. Preliminary numbers were spectacular: about 37,300 nests, an exponential increase of 70 percent over the past 27 years. So perhaps all those conservation efforts are finally paying off. We even had more green sea turtle nests on our own monitoring beaches than we have ever had before (17). The leatherbacks 2015 season was small but mighty, with preliminary numbers coming in at 1,493 nests. Considering that we started with only 27 nests 25 years ago, this makes the leatherbacks the most improved team of 2015. We even found a leatherback nest on a Collier County beach, where they had never been recorded in the past. Loggerheads are definitely the home team here. Approximately 80 percent of the worlds loggerhead population nests either on Florida beaches or in Oman on the Arabian Peninsula. Florida alone accounts for some 90 percent of U.S. loggerhead nesting. Like many a home team, loggerheads have good seasons and bad seasons, and their nesting totals over time look a lot like a rollercoaster. Scores peaked in 1998, bottomed out in 2007, and since then have rebounded. Preliminary nesting numbers come in at about 89,200, indicating a general increase in nest counts. This might seem like a lot in comparison to the other turtle teams, but remember: The Sunshine State is the primary arena where these turtles come to nest, which is not necessarily the case for the other teams. We had a good season in 2015, with 507 nests on the beaches Conservancy referees watch over. Honorary mention goes to the Kemps ridley, with 14 nests in the preliminary count (two are pending tests), and the hawksbill, with three nests pending confirmation. Primary nesting arenas for these species are outside of Florida. As Conservancy biologists gear up for the 2016 sea turtle nesting season, we are hoping for a lot of high scores from all of the teams. Kathy Worley is director of environmental science at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, a not-for-profit organization working to protect the water, land and wildlife in Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties. The organization leverages the combined expertise of its environmental science, policy, education and wildlife rehabilitation teams to meet this mission. To learn more, visit conservancy. org.

Suite 300, Naples, FL 34103 | A18 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 11-17, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELThe fashionable face of the new Jeep Cherokee cant hide the rough and tumble off-roader underneathThe Jeep Cherokee of the 1980s was one of those vehicles that instantly clicked with buyers. It gave them a convenient size while avoiding the stigma of driving their parents station wagon. That issue has now come full circle as the next generation of family drivers who are trying to avoid SUVs that carted them around as youngsters. That gives the new Cherokee the ambitious task of breaking the crossover class image that its predecessor helped to craft. This reassessment starts with a front end that keeps its Jeep lineage with the seven-slot grille, but overall is far more aggressive than the companys traditionally conservative designs. The headlights look like they have been given a stretched rake that no other car company has done before. It is a bit of an illusion because this is just an LED accent package. The real headlights could almost be mistaken for fog lights because of how they are mounted within the bumper. This similar setup brought the Nissan Juke radical attention, but the Cherokee does it with a less controversial fascia. There is function in this angular design. The Cherokee has some of the best approach and departure angles in its class. For those not familiar with off-road terms, this helps when going up and down inclines. The rear has a particularly good slant. In the real world this means the back bumper will likely never scrape exiting the steepest parking garages. This also creates a higher liftgate good for reaching down for groceries but prohibitive for overall cargo space. Inside, the Cherokee goes a more traditional route. The bright accents around the dash draw attention to the center vents and radio, just like in its bigger brother the Grand Cherokee. Jeep is deliberately bringing focus here because it is the hub of the vehicle. Everyone gets a standard touchscreen no matter if it is the $24,000 base Cherokee or our tester in Limited trim thats loaded with enough accessories to approach $40K. The infotainment system controls all the usual stereo functions, and in the higher-end models, it does a great job of integrating turn-byturn navigation without taking up the entire screen. Everything feels comfortable from the drivers seat. A few years ago, Jeep paid special attention to developing softer and higher quality materials, and it has not slacked since. The optional 3.2-liter V6 motor feels more mature on the road. It offers nearly 50 percent more horsepower than the standard 2.4-liter motor without a significant fuel economy penalty. This gain in power is especially helpful for those who choose this Cherokee for its standout feature off-road prowess. Any Cherokee that engages all four wheels gets a x4 badge on the tailgate, which is a bit of a boastful exaggeration. The reality is this offers one of the best all-wheel drive systems available, but it has its limitations. Just like many of its competitors, the Cherokee can automatically detect when wheels are slipping. It then diverts power from the front wheels to the rear wheels for added traction. Where the Cherokee lives up to its rough and tumble Jeep pedigree is that the driver also has the ability to program the car to boost its front/rear power distribution to account for especially tricky terrains such as sand and snow. The selectable all-wheel drive combined with the high ground clearance makes this a better choice than competitors like the Ford Escape or Mazda CX-5 for those who leave the pavement often. But if off-road plans often call for more than just beach sand, the Cherokee comes in a Trailhawk version that offers a genuine lockable differential. It is the only Cherokee trim level that genuinely earns its 4x4 badge, but it also has the highest base price at $31,500. The Cherokee does not betray the adventurous spirit that is the cornerstone of Jeeps image. It rides more like an off-road vehicle than just about any other compact crossover out there today. At the same time, its wrapped in a much more stylish package than its predecessor. So if you liked riding in the back of your parents Cherokee, it wont be too hard to upgrade to the drivers seat.

An online company, The Well Armed Woman, offers such carry options as stylish leggings, lace waistbands and an array of underarm and bra holsters (even an in-cup model, the Marilyn) in leopard-print and pastel colors. However, a womans body shape and size may be more important shopping considerations, according to the companys founder. A 32A bust could not conceal a Glock 19 very well nor would a 42DD-or-larger (front) allow for effective cross-draw carry. Democracy bluesIn January, Robert Battle took the oath of office for his second term as a city councilman in East Chicago, Ind. administered at the county lockup, where he is being held without bail, charged with a coldblooded murder during a drug deal. The crime made news in October (i.e., before election day), yet Mr. Battle still won his race. According to law, he cannot be forced out of office unless he is convicted or admits the crimes, and he had the right to vote for himself in the election (except that he failed to request an absentee ballot). Canonical marijuana(1) The Albany, N.Y., company Vireo Health told reporters it would soon offer the worlds first certified Kosher marijuana, announcing that the Orthodox Union of New York had authenticated it as having met Jewish dietary laws (e.g., grown with insect-free plants). (Other Koshervalidating officials complained that the approval should apply only to marijuana that is eaten, not smoked.) (2) Two habitwearing nuns were scheduled to ask the Merced (California) City Council in January to decline its prerogative under state law to ban dispensing or cultivating medical marijuana. The nuns order makes and sells salves and tonics for pain management, using a strain of cannabis containing only a trace of psychoactive material.Bright ideasSince the (naturally insulated) uterus can be a lonely space, Institut Marques of Barcelona, Spain, recently demonstrated a tampon-like speaker to carry soothing, specially selected, 54-decibel (hushed tone) rhythms that supposedly improve fetal growth. In the Babypods first concert, the singer Soraya performs Christmas carols. (However, documented evidence for such a device was limited to success of in-vitro fertilization when music was wafted through during the first 48 hours of sperm-egg union.) The job of the researcher: Taiwanese scientists recently announced the availability of their Infant Cries Translator (iPhone and Android app), which they say can, with 77 percent accuracy (92 percent for those under 2 weeks old), tell what a baby wants by its screeches and wailings. The National Taiwan University Hospital Yunlin doctors first had to create a database of 200,000 crying sounds.The continuing crisis A former lecturer for Spanish classes at the liberal arts Amherst College near Northampton, Mass., sued the school in December after it failed to renew her contract leading the lecturer to charge that the Spanish department had tried to solicit student course enrollment by prostitution. Lecturer Dimaris Barrios-Beltran accused her supervisor, Victoria Maillo, of hiring only attractive teaching assistants and encouraging them to date Amherst students with the ulterior motive of signing them up for Spanish classes to boost the departments profile. (College officials said they could not corroborate the accusation, but a lawyer for Ms. Barrios-Beltran said Ms. Maillo is no longer employed at Amherst.) William Bendorf, 38, filed a lawsuit in December against the Funny Bone comedy club in Omaha, Neb., and comedianhypnotist Doug Thompson after plunging off the stage and breaking his leg following Mr. Thompsons having hypnotized him during his act. Mr. Thompson claimed that he had snapped Mr. Bendorf out of the trance, but the lawsuit claims that Mr. Bendorf, instead of exiting via the stairs as Mr. Thompson instructed, wandered directly toward his stage-side table because he was still under Mr. Thompsons spell. A patient who had been blind for a decade (a condition thought to have been brought on by brain damage from an auto accident) suddenly regained her sight, according to a research report in the latest PsyCh Journal but only in one of the 10 identities (a teenage boy) populating her dissociative identity disorder. Doctors have since ruled out organic damage and (through EEG testing) malingering and are now coaxing her eyesight back by treating the disorder.

They also found evidence that this signature might be present in many more types of cancer. The specific signature results from a chemical modification of DNA called methylation, which can control the expression of genes much like a dimmer on a light switch. Higher amounts of DNA methylation (hypermethylation), like that found by the researchers in some tumor DNA, decreases a genes activity. Based on this advance, the researchers hope to spur development of a blood test that can be used to diagnose a variety of cancers at early stages, when treatments can be most effective. The study appeared Feb. 5 in The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics. Finding a distinctive methylationbased signature is like looking for a spruce tree in a pine forest, said Laura Elnitski, Ph.D., a computational biologist at NIHs National Human Genome Research Institute. Its a technical challenge to identify, but we found an elevated methylation signature around the gene known as ZNF154 that is unique to tumors. In 2013, Ms. Elnitskis research group discovered a methylation signature around ZNF154 in 15 tumor types in 13 different organs and deemed it a possible universal cancer biomarker. Biomarkers are biological molecules that indicate the presence of disease. The researchers identified the methylation mark using DNA taken from solid tumors. The biomarker is the first of its kind to apply to so many types of cancer. No one in my group slept the night after that discovery, Ms. Elnitski said, adding their study uncovered telltale methylation marks in colon, lung, breast, stomach and endometrial cancers. To verify the connection between increased methylation and cancer, the group developed a computer program that looked at the methylation marks in the DNA of people with and without cancer. By feeding this information into the program, they were able to predict a threshold for detecting tumor DNA. Even when they reduced the amount of methylated molecules by 99 percent, the computer could still detect the cancerrelated methylation marks in the mixture. Knowing that tumors often shed DNA into the bloodstream, they calculated the proportions of circulating tumor DNA that could be found in the blood.New approach less invasiveMs. Elnitski will next begin screening blood samples from patients with bladder, breast, colon, pancreatic and prostate cancers to determine the accuracy of detection at low levels of circulating DNA. Tumor DNA in a person with cancer typically comprises between 1 and 10 percent of all DNA circulating in the bloodstream. The group noted that when 10 percent of the circulating DNA contains the tumor signature, their detection rate is quite good. Because the methylation could be detected at such low levels, it should be adequate to detect advanced cancer as well as some intermediate and early tumors, depending on the type. Ms. Elnitskis group will collaborate with Dr. Christina Annunziata, an investigator in the Womens Malignancies Branch and head of the Translational Genomics Section at NIHs National Cancer Institute. They will test blood samples from women with ovarian cancer to validate the process over the course of treatment and to determine if this type of analysis leads to improved detection of a recurrence and, ultimately, impr oved o utcomes.Ovarian cancer is difficult to detect in its early stages, and there are no proven early detection methods. We need a reliable biomarker for detecting the disease when a cure is more likely, Dr. Annunziata said. Current blood tests are specific to a known tumor type. In other words, clinicians must first find the tumor, remove a sample of it and determine its genome sequence. Once the tumor-specific mutations are known, they can be tracked for appearance in the blood. The potential of the new approach is that no prior knowledge of cancer is required, it would be less intrusive than other screening approaches like colonoscopies and mammograms and it could be used to follow individuals at high risk for cancer or to monitor the activity of a tumor during treatment. Once the blood test is developed, the scientific community must conduct studies to ensure that it does not indicate the presence of cancer when it is not there or miss cancer when it is there. Dr. Elnitski does not yet understand the connection between tumors and elevated DNA methylation. It might represent derailment of normal processes in the cell, or it might have something to do with the fact that tumors consume a lot of energy and circumvent the cellular processes that keep growth in check. Researchers also dont know exactly what the gene ZNF154 does.We have laid the groundwork for developing a diagnostic test, which offers the hope of catching cancer earlier and dramatically improving the survival rate of people with many types of cancer, she said.

It had been only six months since his last dental exam and cleaning, but clearly something was wrong. Turns out that not only did he have an abscessed tooth, but dental X-rays also showed a large amount of bone resorption, a bone remodeling process that invades the tooth structure. Its normal when it involves the loss of baby or puppy teeth, but veterinarians are seeing it more often in the permanent teeth of dogs. Keeper had to have three teeth removed. Keepers experience is just one of the reasons that veterinarians are adding dental X-rays to the professional cleaning process. His veterinarian, Gershon L. Alaluf, DVM, explains: When you look at a dogs teeth and see tartar, thats just the tip of the iceberg. It doesnt tell you whats going on underneath the gumline. Usually theres infection, and on dental X-rays we can see pockets of infection, plus root resorption and bone resorption. Oral and dental disease are by far the most common problems affecting dogs and cats. By the time they are 3 years old, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats have some form of gum disease. Tartar isnt just ugly; combined with bad breath, its a signal that your pets teeth and gums are probably infected, painful or both. Other signs include difficulty eating, constant drooling and lethargy. Unfortunately, dogs and cats cant tell us that their mouths hurt, so all too often they go without treatment because a professional cleaning is considered cosmetic rather than medically important. But oral bacteria dont affect just the mouth. Over time, they can cause infections that enter the bloodstream and spread throughout the body, damaging organs such as the heart, liver and kidneys. What can you do? Weve said it before and well say it again: Brushing is the No. 1 way to help keep dental disease at bay. If you start when your puppy or kitten is young, hell get used to it and accept it more readily. Here are some options to prevent tooth decay if your pet says no way to brushing: Wipe the teeth with a moist gauze pad or dental wipe. That can help to remove the plaque that hardens into tartar. Ask your veterinarian about gels, rinses or sprays that contain chlorhexidine or zinc ascorbate cysteine (ZAC) compounds. The enzymes in chlorhexidine products dissolve plaque and help reduce bacteria, and ZAC compounds encourage collagen production to stimulate repair of gum tissue. Lay in a supply of tartar-control chews and toys (available for dogs and cats) that contain enzymes to help reduce plaque. Cut back on the daily skinny vanilla lattes and put the cost toward your pets dental care. At $3.25 a pop, you can save more than enough over a years time to cover the cost of a cleaning and any necessary extractions. An annual professional cleaning that gets below the gumline something that cant be done with a non-anesthetic shine-up can help ensure that dental problems are found early and treated, which saves you money and saves your pet unnecessary discomfort. Even better, you may find that once his mouth doesnt hurt anymore, your pet is acting young again, for the first time in a long time. Dental disease left untreated is painful and may even shorten your pets life. PET TA L E SChew on thisTo stop stinky breath and periodontal disease, brush up on dental care


NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 11-17, 2016 NEWS A27 THE DIVA DIARIESWhats not to love about Valentines Day on the weekend?I dont know about you, but Im seriously grateful that Valentines Day falls on a Sunday this year. You would think the reason for my happiness is because Sunday is funday my husband doesnt have to go to work, we can sleep in, he can bring me coffee in bed, we can go somewhere fancy and indulge in a mimosa-soaked brunch and, if the weather is nice, we can go to the beach and write our initials in the sand before my beloved Valentine takes me shopping for jewelry that I can sparkle in during a romantic dinner someplace where the waiters wear tuxedos. And yet, thats not why Im happy that Valentines Day falls on a Sunday this year. See, Facebook traffic tends to be lighter on the weekends. Compared with during the week, when we apparently scroll through Ye Olde Book of Face as a way of avoiding mundane work tasks, folks dont get quite as many views on their posts over the weekend. This means, that hopefully, my newsfeed wont be filled with photos of roses, roses and MORE roses this V-Day. Also, when Valentines Day falls on a weekday, fellows generally have bouquets of roses delivered to their wives or girlfriends places of work. As the bouquets are carried by a receptionist into the pen of pods at the office, everyone looks up from their computer in the hopes that the posies are being brought straight to them, while the recipient gets out her cell phone and readies herself to photograph the moment. Possibly, even before shes texted her Valentine a Thank you, Honey (insert heart emoticons here), the picture of the bouquet (after its been properly filtered through her camera app) has made it to both Facebook and Instagram with hashtags along the lines of #MyValentine, #HesAKeeper, #RelationshipGoals, #Blessed and #HeLovesMe. My husband buys me electronics on holidays. For Christmas I got an iPad Mini and an iPhone 6. For Valentines Day Im hoping for a digital camera. Its not that my beloved Todd isnt romantic, its just that hes practical. And I rather love that about him. Granted, posting a photo of an iPad on social media isnt as lovey-dovey as a bouquet of roses. I remember one year on Valentines Day, the roses ran rampant through my Facebook feed. I couldnt take it anymore. Feeling I had to keep up with the Jennifers and the Jessicas, I called Todd at work and asked him if he could pick up some roses at Publix on his way home. He asked why and even hinted that he had something special for me from Best Buy. Well, I said, mostly I just want to take a picture of them and post it on Facebook. After a few seconds of pondering the request, he pointed out that by the time he got off work, Publix would likely be out of roses, but that hed try his best. He also offered a helpful suggestion: If he couldnt find roses at 7 p.m. on on Valentines Day, maybe I could Google a photo of roses and post that instead? After we hung up, it made me wonder How many roses are Googled and posted just to create Valentine envy? Valentines Day, especially for singles, is hard enough without the barrage of Facebook roses and accompanying over-the-top hashtags. Maybe, just for once, we can admire our roses or our chocolates or our new iPhones without plastering them on Facebook. Since that probably wont happen, however, I advise my single girlfriends to avoid social media on Sunday. And and in solidarity, Ill do the same. Well get off the Internet, get outside and smell the (real) roses. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

MONEY & INVESTINGAmericas puzzling financial outlookThis is a very weird time for the U.S. economy. Usually when things are good, like in the early part of this decade, things feel good. People are spending, the stock market is booming, real estate prices are rising and wages are growing. And when things are bad, like during the financial crisis, things feel bad. Unemployment is rising, equities are dropping, people are penny pinching, and alcohol sales are through the roof. But today we have neither of these situations. All around us is conflicting data regarding our present economy. Gas prices are half of what they were a couple of years ago, yet consumers arent spending. Unemployment is at multi-year lows, yet millions of people cant find jobs. And who has gotten a sizeable raise lately? And last Friday, all of these inconsistent trends could be found in the critical monthly jobs report. More importantly, the facts found in this release can help explain some of the economic uncertainty facing us today. The most widely reported part of each months jobs report is the headline number, which is the number of jobs created during the previous month. The number for this month was 151,000. While not as strong as the previous months 262,000, it still was a sizable increase and shows the strength of the economy. After all, if we were in recession, would companies be adding jobs? Just as positive, the overall unemployment rate fell to a multi-year low of 4.9 percent. This is the level where the Fed considers the economy at full employment. And probably most significantly, wages seem like they are finally starting to head a little higher. During the past couple of years, most economists expected wages to rise as unemployment dropped and there was more competition for workers. But wage growth has been stagnant until the last couple of months when wages started to inch higher. This trend continued as the data suggested that wage growth is now at 2.5 percent annually. While not a huge number, it is certainly better than zero. So with all of this seemingly positive data, why dont we feel good about our economy? First, the jobs report indicated that the overall labor participation rate, while off of a multi-decade bottom, is still very low. This is the percentage of the entire U.S. that is actually working as compared to the unemployment rate which just shows the percentage of people who are actively looking for a job who do not have one. The labor participation rate takes into account people that dont want a job, cant work, or for some reason just dropped out of our labor force. And this low number means that millions of Americans are not working and dont want to or cant work. Clearly, something must be done about this. Another important data point in the report is how uneven job growth has been. The college educated worker unemployment rate was at 2.5 percent while those without a high school degree saw unemployment rates of 7.4 percent. In addition, many are fearful that with a strong dollar, an already weak manufacturing sector will lose ground to foreign competitors and will be forced to cut labor in the months ahead. That forces the service and retail sectors of our economy to fire on all cylinders to keep our economy moving forward. But already many companies in these arenas are warning that the consumer just isnt spending like he should in a strong economic recovery. I am hopeful that this may change as wages start to rise, but the evidence of this is yet to be seen. So the question now is how long will we be in this state of financial limbo? For those who are anxious for this period to end, you may be careful what you wish for as the resolution of this may be a recession. But I think that it is more likely that low gas prices, higher wages and low unemployment will overcome weak manufacturing and we actually are more optimistic by the end of the year. Thats why I havent pulled money out of equities, but I am putting new money in defensive names like Walmart or consumer staple names. It is also why we will see more high volatility weeks and months ahead as investors try to read the tea leaves of financial data. Hang on. It is going to be a wild ride.

Huntington Bancshares Incorporated. where self-published authors rather than being seen as lesser have a sheen of indie artistic integrity. There used to be a little stigma with self publishing and theres not anymore, if its done right, said Judy Borich, who along with her husband, Bruce, founded Middle River Press in Oakland Park. Thats kind of our motto, Middle River Press, we do it right. Middle River is one of a growing number of boutique and small presses that are hybrids of traditional presses and selfpublishing. It allows authors to retain the rights and sale income while offering editing, design and marketing help to create a custom, professional product. An author who publishes through a boutique press also may benefit from having the imprimatur, that mark of professionalism and approval that bookstores, reviewers and customers may look for. For instance, Middle River has helped sell more than 100,000 copies of Palm Beach County attorney Harvey E. Oyer, IIIs series of books for children. The Adventures of Charlie Pierce series is a hit. How did he do it? Simple but not easy: a compelling storyline, careful editing and beautifully illustrated covers, Ms. Borich said. But hes also willing to do the legwork marketing the work, crucial for any self-published author serious about selling copies. He works his heart and soul out selling that book, Ms. Borich said. Aside from authors who want to skip the marketing side, she calls poor editing and cover design the two biggest downfalls of self publishing. Crucial coversSandman Book Company in Punta Gorda carries 185-plus or minus local, self-published authors. Heidi Lange, who owns and runs the store with her husband, Scott Hill, observes customers choosing books based on the cover. They can make decisions in the space of a glance about whether they want to investigate that book further and possibly purchase it. Her advice to self-published authors serious about selling books: dont try to design the cover yourself. I would tell them they really need to spend more on the art and its cover, she said. Its true that you shouldnt judge a book by its cover but its all that we have. You dont have much time to grab their attention and the cover really matters. Sandman offers self-published authors on consignment. They get shelf space at the front of the store for no upfront cost and no time limit. The only requirement is that they autograph the book, which helps sales. When someone buys a copy, the author keeps 60 percent of the sale and Sandman gets 40 percent. Sandman also hosts monthly open houses where writers mingle with customers. One of the authors Sandman carries, Malcolm J. Brenner, self-published an offbeat romance novel. Wet Goddess is a love story between a young man and a female dolphin. With its controversial story line and intriguing cover photograph (by Mr. Brenner, who is also a photographer) it has sold consistently in the store and online, about 1,300 copies, since its first printing in January 2010. Self publishing is the perfect outlet for something like this, bookseller Ms. Lange said. Its a one-of-a-kind. Theres nothing else like it. After years of looking for an agent and a small press publisher likely to be openminded about his storyline, Mr. Brenner did the job himself. That proved to have its own struggles. He dropped one editor after he got his proof back with every single use of the word aint, which had been used in dialogue, nixed. His first printing had hundreds of typos that Mr. Brenner fixed in three subsequent printings. I was very embarrassed, he said. I dont think theres more than two or three left in the book at this point. His latest book is a memoir, Growing Up in the Orgone Box, about growing up in a pseudo-scientific cult. Hes working on another novel that concerns a UFO, The Mel-Khyor Chronicles.Its the writer, not the publisher Especially with an indie DIY ethic rising in the culture, the Big Five trade publishing houses (Simon & Schuster, Penguin Random House, Macmillan Publishers, HarperCollins and Hachette Book Group) seem increasingly corporate and commercial. Like big movie production studios, they are more likely to bet on best-selling formulas and sequels rather than take a chance on an artistic vision. (Its also possible to do both at the same time.) The trouble with the publishing industry is like all industries that I can see is theyre only interested in commercial fiction, said Charles Sobczak, a Sanibel Island-based author, lecturer and Realtor who started self publishing his novels (and later non-fiction) in 1999 through the imprint he created for that purpose, Indigo Press. I have zero interest in commercial publishing. I wanted to write about people, about life, and I never wanted to write a series because I always felt if youre doing that, youre just an employee. Seeing no other recourse, I decided to go ahead and self publish. Now hes working on a novel called Between Floors about seven people stuck in an elevator overnight at a courthouse. However a book comes into existence, some say, consider the art, not the publisher. Its always wise not to dismiss a book because its been self published, so I never do, said Naples-based author and book critic Phil Jason, who writes regular reviews of Florida authors for this newspaper. It doesnt take long to discover, whether a book is self published or trade published, whether its going to hold your attention and whether I think my readers are going to get something out of knowing about it. No matter what form its published in, making money writing books is difficult in a flooded market. Aside from a relative handful of superstar authors, its rare for someone to make a living let alone become wealthy writing books. On the traditionally published side, the stars include authors like Stephen King and Donna Tartt. On the selfpublished side, there are success stories such as The Martian by Andy Weir and Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James that became huge best-sellers, were eventually picked up by traditional publishing houses and turned into slick Hollywood movies. In the last decade self publishing exploded with print-on-demand services such as Amazons CreateSpace.Discovering indie authors With so many indie authors to choose from, how do you pick what to read? With that in mind, and in an effort to provide a central location where readers can discover indie authors, Patti Jefferson opened P.J. Boox in South Fort Myers in April. Authors work is presented more like in an art gallery than a bookstore, the covers facing the customer and surrounded by empty wall space. P.J.s is entirely dedicated to indie, self-published and small press authors, nearly 300 of them both local and from around the world. The books are vetted for quality, taking into account the professionalism of the cover, editing, Amazon reviews and the authors social media presence. Her business model offers writers a consignment deal, not unlike an antiquemall model. The authors pay a small registration fee and $20 per month for four months for a space on her shelf. The author retains 100 percent of the sales. For Fort Myers-based novelist Judy Loose (who self-publishes under the name J.C. Ferguson), making money is second to love of writing. My mother says I started telling stories when I started to talk, she said. And I started writing stories when I was very young. But then I didnt really write except for business until I was 50. And I went to an adult education class on writing. And the whole class ended up forming a writers group. A fan of mysteries and thrillers, she published her first novel, The Janus Code, in 2013 and Mangrove Madness last year. Both are sold at P.J. Boox. She had looked at traditional publishers first. Its not easy, she said. Its hard to get anybody to even read your book. A few of the publishers showed interest, but the book sat around for a few years unpublished. So I finally got disgusted and took The Janus Code and published it under my maiden name because the agent didnt want me to publish another book under the same name. Then I finally dropped the agent because she wasnt accomplishing anything and published Mangrove Madness. Ms. Loose is working on a follow up to Mangrove Madness. She uses Amazons popular print-ondemand service CreateSpace to publish. Its a free service, but Ms. Loose still recommends you hire an editor. Nobody should edit their own work, she said. You cant see your own errors. PUBLISHEDFrom page 1 BRENNER

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 11-17, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY I trace my roots back to the launch of a small mining venture in 1902 in Minnesota. One of my early products was waterproof sandpaper that reduced dust. Today Im a major multifaceted manufacturer, raking in more than $30 billion annually and sporting a market value recently near $85 billion. My products number more than 60,000 and include adhesives, tapes, stethoscopes, and toilet scrubbers. Im known as a great innovator, with a third of my revenue stemming from products that were invented within the past five years. Y ou might utter my ticker symbol during a tasty meal. Who am I?

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Look Beyond Your 401(k)401(k) plans are great, but theyre not your only retirement saving option. A key plus for 401(k)s is that they often feature matching funds. Thats free money and a guaranteed return for you. You also get an upfront tax break with a traditional 401(k). On the other hand, your withdrawals will be taxed at ordinary income tax rates, instead of at the lower capital gains rates for long-term holdings. The withdrawals can also push retirees into higher tax brackets. 401(k) s usually offer a limited menu of investment options for your money, too. Traditional and Roth IRA accounts can be opened at a host of brokerages, permitting you to invest in just about any stock and gobs of mutual funds. Traditional IRAs offer the same tax break (and potential tax drawbacks) as traditional 401(k)s. Roth IRAs offer you tax-free withdrawals in retirement, in exchange for losing the upfront tax break. Thus, if you invest effectively in a Roth IRA over many years and the account grows in value significantly, you can look forward to eventually enjoying it all tax-free. The best retirement-saving strategy for many of us is to use several of these accounts. For starters, contribute as much to your 401(k) as necessary in order to grab all available matching funds from your employer. Beyond that, consider contributing as much as you can to an IRA ideally, a Roth IRA. For 2015 and 2016, the contribution limit for most folks is $5,500, plus an additional $1,000 for those age 50 or older. After maxing out an IRA, you might plow more money into your 401(k). The contribution limit there is much more generous $18,000 for most of us in 2015 and 2016, plus an extra $6,000 for those age 50 or older. More and more employers are offering Roth 401(k)s that feature tax-free withdrawals in retirement see whether such a plan is available to you. Of course, everyones situation is different, and tax laws can change over time. So before taking action, learn more at or, or consult a financial adviser. Burned by Apples RiseI shorted Apple right after the passing of Steve Jobs, thinking for sure the company would not survive without his genius. Several businesspeople in the tech world told me that Apple had a very sound business model and that shorting the stock was a bad idea. I did it anyway, thinking there was no way they could be right. During the time I had the stock short, it doubled in market value, and I lost about $26,000. Im still shocked about that one. L.C., onlineThe Fool Responds: Your story offers several lessons. First, know that overconfidence can be costly. Dont buy stocks without giving serious consideration to their risks, and dont short stocks (essentially betting that they will fall in price) without considering that they might not fall or, worse, might rise. Steve Jobs was indeed a critical part of Apples success and promise, but he wasnt everything. The company is still a strong innovator, and it still has many solid products and services that are selling well. In fiscal 2015, for example, it sold 231 million iPhones, 37 percent more than in 2014, and while iPad sales dropped, they still numbered 54 million. Apples iTunes is another strong performer, and Apple Pay and future ventures could pay off well, too. Apple has been expanding its business in China, as well. Great companies have more to them than just a great leader. Health Care PowerhouseYou may not know Switzerland-based Novartis AG (NYSE: NVS) by name, but with a market value near $190 billion, it was recently the worlds second-largest pharmaceutical company, second-largest generic medicines company and largest eye-care company. With disappointing fourth-quarter results and a weak nearterm outlook due to patent expirations and a struggling eye-care business, the stock has recently taken a hit, but its longterm prospects remain promising.Novartis pharmaceutical division features more than 50 company-owned branded drugs, while its Sandoz generics business has more than 1,000 generic and biologic drugs on the market. Sandoz launched Zarxio last year, a biosimilar of Amgens billion-dollar drug Neupogen. It was the first biosimilar drug (comparable to a generic version of a biologic drug) approved in the U.S. Sandoz is well-positioned to profit from more biosimilar drugs, with several in phase 3 trials. Its plans to seek approval for 10 major biosimilars in the next few years could be a major tailwind. The company is aggressively investing in its future, spending about $9 billion on research and development in 2015, while receiving 18 regulatory approvals in the U.S., Europe and Japan. Its pipeline recently featured more than 200 projects in clinical development, including 135 pharmaceutical ones.Novartis stock recently yielded 3.5 percent, and it has been hiking that payout for many years in a row. I trace my roots back to 1974, when a group of physicians formed Charter Med. I introduced the first network-based health plan for seniors in 1979, went public in 1984, and launched my Patient-Centered Medical Home Program in 2009. Today, based in Minnesota and with a market value topping $100 billion, Im a health insurance giant, and my Optum division specializes in population health management and pharmacy services. I employ more than 200,000 people and serve customers in all 50 states. I have contracts with more than 6,000 hospitals and more than 850,000 doctors and health care professionals. Who am I? (Answer: UnitedHealth Group) A Prime RateQWhats the prime rate? V.R., Fort Myers, FloridaAThe prime rate is the interest rate that banks charge their lowest-risk commercial customers. Each bank may set its prime rate, but the major commercial banks tend to sport the same one most of the time. Youll find the prime rate listed in most newspapers business sections. Interest rates for mortgages, home equity loans, credit cards and other business loans take their lead from the prime rate. A car loan rate, for example, might be calculated by taking the current prime rate and adding a certain amount to it. The prime rate is typically left unchanged until major banks change their rates, often in response to economic conditions such as when the Federal Reserve changes its discount rate, which is what it charges banks that borrow shortterm money. ***QIs it a smart strategy to find and buy stocks trading near their 52-week lows and to sell ones trading near their highs? F.P., Las Cruces, New MexicoAIts smart to buy low and sell high, but dont focus too much on 52-week ranges. If a companys stock is trading near its all-year low, it might indeed be a bargain facing a temporary problem but it might also be facing long-lasting troubles and heading even lower. Further research can help you decide whether its a good candidate for your portfolio. Selling a stock at its all-year high isnt always best, either. Many wonderful companies have rewarded shareholders for decades, repeatedly setting new highs despite occasional hiccups. By selling, you miss out on future gains. Aim to buy a stock when its significantly underpriced and sell when its overpriced. Want more information about stocks?

Campbell & Prebish has joined William Raveis Real Estate, effective Friday, Feb. 12. The association includes the assignment of Campbell & Prebishs affiliation with Christies International Real Estate. My relationships with Tom Campbell and Richard Prebish extend back nearly eight years, said Bill Raveis, chairman and CEO of William Raveis Real Estate, said when making the announcement. At the end of the day, it distills down to the facts that we share a common culture and philosophy Their attention to detail, ethics and professionalism are second to none We consider it a privilege to work with them. Mr. Campbell and Mr. Prebish launched their company six years ago, specializing in Port Royal, Aqualane, Olde Naples and beachfront properties. We have a duty to our customers to give them as much exposure as possible in order to successfully sell their properties, Mr. Campbell said. Our affiliation with Raveis Real Estate will give us that exposure throughout the country. Additionally, our customers will continue to have the significant global reach of the Christies world-wide organization. William Raveis is a marketing and technology-driven real estate firm with more than 4,200 staff/agents working in 120 offices throughout the northeast. The company website attracts more than 13 million unique visitors a year, is translated into 90 languages and generated 30,000-plus leads in 2015. Changing demographics clearly indicate that a greater number of our customers are coming from the Northeast, Mr. Campbell said. Our Raveis association will benefit our customers greatly in that they will receive the additional advantage of referrals from the largest family-owned real estate business in the northeast. Campbell & Prebish has always been highly focused on its customers and were going to ensure the continuity of that integrity and unrivalled service, Mr. Raveis added. When we add our Northeast footprint, along with technologies like 3D virtual tours and property value forecasting, were going to be able to take this team to an entirely new level. Mr. Campbell first visited Naples in 1953 when he came to his grandparents home on the beach, just north of where the Port Royal Club now stands.

The four-bedroom, 3.5-bath, home is for sale at $1,426,133 fully furnished. Clive Daniels Jean Losier and Jodi Caldwell guided the design for the homes interiors, which include 3,468 square feet under air. The residence features a barrel ceiling in the foyer, a great room with stained beams and a master suite with sitting area. The southern exposure home has an expansive outdoor living area with a full kitchen and ample room for dining. The Pontevedra model has a Spanish Colonial architectural styling, which led the designers to create a relaxed yet sophisticated environment. Since Fiddlers Creek is recognized for its resort, waterside lifestyle, it seemed natural to implement coastal touches through out the home, Ms. Losier said. Finishes and fabrics in soft grays are reminiscent of worn docks; crisp whites and pops of bright blue add interest and create a relaxing palette. Sophisticated, traditional furnishings have a weathered patina and painted finishes that are ideal for entertaining. Pelican Marsh Golf Course earns Audubon recognition for environmental stewardshipPelican Marsh Golf Club, a memberowned private club in North Naples, has retained its designation as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. First certified in 2001, the Pelican Marsh golf course is one of 673 in the United States, 18 of which are in Naples. Recertification is required every two years. The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary program helps golf course communities protect and improve the environment while preserving the natural heritage of the game of golf. According to Audubon International, achieving and maintaining certification required a course to meet set standards in the following categories: environmental planning, wildlife and habitat Management, Outreach and education, chemical use reduction and safety, water conservation and water quality management. We are committed to long-term environmental stewardship, says Kimberly Doerseln, director of marketing for Pelican Marsh Golf Club.

Mr. Campbell is a founding member of Community School of Naples and a past board member of the school and the Conservancy of Southwest Florida.

He was named by The Wall Street Journal as one of the top 200 real estate professionals in the country. Mr. Prebish is originally from Michigan and performed both his undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of Michigan.

Mr. Prebish is a member of the Hole in the Wall Golf Club, board member of the Naples Historical Society, past board member of the University of Michigan Alumni Club of Southwest Florida, a member of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, and a member of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce and the Naples Area Board of Realtors.

The company prides itself in its unique approach to the real estate industry. More than 30 years ago, William Raveis came up with the concept of team building to give brokers the opportunity to form teams and brand themselves. In doing this, William Raveis Real Estate offers sales associates the chance to build their own business within the company. We believe our brokers are our customers. We offer tools that empower our agents to innovate their own businesses, said Bill Raveis. Naples is undoubtedly a different market. Thats why were excited to bring a new business model to the brokers working there. Weve had an overwhelmingly positive response to the prospect of bringing William Raveis Real Estate to Naples. William Raveis Real Estate plans to open 30 offices in Florida over the next 10 years. William Raveis Real Estate, Mortgage & Insurance is the No. 1 family-owned real estate company in the Northeast and the No. 8 real estate company in the country, according to REAL Trends.

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 Brooklynborn 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.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 11-17, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ers with powerful voices, youve definitely seen Lisa Fischer. The woman, quite simply, is incredible. Not only can she hold her own on stage, belting out Gimme Shelter with Mick Jagger, but shes a keen interpreter of music, with her own jazz styling. Lisa Fischer, and her trio, Grand Baton, will play four concerts over two days at the Daniels Pavilion at Artis Naples: 6 and 8:30 p.m. Feb. 25 and 26. The Naples Players annual musical is always a good bet. This year at the Sugden Community Theatre, they present Young Frankenstein from March 2-April 3. Written by Mel Brooks and based on his 1974 movie of the same name, (a spoof on the classic horror movie), the musical is full of his zany humor. One of the highlights of the show is Frankensteins monster, dressed in top hat and tails, singing and dancing to Puttin on the Ritz. Mad scientists, brain transplants and spooky castles what more could you ask for? Presenting period pieces and classics is one of the things Gulfshore Playhouse does best. Thats why you should make a point to see the companys production of Ibsens An Enemy of the People March 26-April 27. As the last offering of its Chamber Music Series this season, the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center presents Music of John Cage at 8 p.m. Friday, April 22 (cocktails at 7 p.m.) The avantgarde composer was a friend and collaborator of artist Robert Rauschenberg. This is a rare opportunity to hear the music Mr. Cage composed. The program will consist of compositions for prepared piano, in which the strings are manipulated sometimes by placing objects on them, completely changing the sound of the keyboard, and his famous 4, in which the musicians sit silently for four minutes and 33 seconds. And the Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota presents the world premiere of Josephine, a musical about Josephine Baker, a Jazz Age icon. (Ernest Hemingway called her The most sensational woman anybody ever saw. Or ever will.) Running April 27-May 29, Josephine stars singer Deborah Cox and focuses on Ms. Bakers years as the star of the FoliesBergere in Paris, her affair with the Swedish Crown Prince Gustav IV and her service in the French Resistance during WWII. Like Bonnie and Clyde, which played there a few years ago, Josephine is a rare opportunity to see the world premiere of a musical before it goes to Broadway. Also of note at the Asolo, playing in repertory: All the Way, a play about President Lyndon P. Johnson (through April 9) and Eugene ONeills Ah, Wilderness! (through April 10). Southwest Florida theaters support emerging playwrights, and were fast becoming a region to see brand-new plays. The Florida Repertory Theatre holds its third annual PlayLab Festival April 28-May 1. The venue presents readings of new plays, with opportunity to speak with the playwright, director and actors afterwards, to ask questions and give feedback. Florida Rep typically picks one of the plays to present in its next season. This year, you can see The Dingdong by Mark Shanahan, adapted from the French farce Le Dindon by Georges Feydeau. A regional theater premiere about the sexploits of three couples, it plays from April 19May 8. Theatre Conspiracy presents Vacuum by Arlene Hutton, winner of its 17th annual New Play Contest. It runs May 6-21. Gulfshore Playhouse in Naples also holds an annual New Works Festival, with readings of new plays and talkbacks. Its festival, now in it fourth year, runs in September (exact dates for 2016 TBA). Metamorphoses by Mary Zimmerman, adapted from the classic Ovid poem of the same name, presents Greek myths in a way you havent seen before. Presented as a series of vignettes, the action takes place in and around a pool of water onstage. Ms. Zimmerman received a 2002 Tony Award for her work. The Venice Theater presents Metamorphoses from April 28-May 15. Also of note: The venues production of Ragtime, a musical based on E.L. Doctorows novel, Feb. 16-March 13. The Ringling plans to officially open its new Center for Asian Art on May 15. Designed by Machado Silvetti, the jade green $10.2 million, 25,000-square-foot, three-level pavilion includes 6,800 square feet of gallery space and a 125-person lecture hall. A daylong festival will include performances, storytelling, demonstrations, culinary tours and gallery guides. While on the Ringling campus, also visit the replica of the Walker Guest House, a gem of a mid-century modern designed by Paul Rudolph in 195 2. This is an opportunity to see what the landmark house looks like inside and out, with the original interior design recreated (through Oct. 6).

ArcheBooks Publishing. 225 pages. Paperback, $7.95; Kindle e-book, $5.95. Suppose a 200-year-old vampire needs to raise some funds. Might he turn his Colorado mansion, his Rose Chateau, into a hotel and go into business? Caleb Odan does just that. Assisted by Roger, his driver, and Niles, his bartender, they create an extended vacation package that brings a couple of dozen people to enjoy about four weeks of Christmas season leisure. Most are looking for a quiet, relaxing time even the four young women who are graduate school classmates finishing up business degrees. (Well, they are looking for fun, too but not the excitement that comes from a nearby jailbreak with the prisoner on the loose.) Other vacationers include a young couple with two rambunctious young boys, an elderly couple and an odd fellow named Graham Smith. Caleb is an awkward host, just learning the ropes about interacting with his guests. He hasnt had much social practice in the last 100 years or so. Hes had to live an isolated life for the last century, and now he cant keep up with the changing times. Roger, who has been in his service for 20 years, is Calebs bridge to contemporary styles, values and both material and popular culture. Caleb is a good student, but theres just too much ground to cover. At once macabre and humorous, Sandy Lenders May Your Heart Be Light gains some of its light touch from the banter between Roger and Caleb as Roger translates Calebs new experiences. To Caleb, a handsome fellow who dresses the brooding baron part, its the 21st century American humans who are the oddballs. But he needs to fit in with them as well as he can. Its business. Theres something extra-special about one of the young women guests at the hotel. Jenna DeVision is gorgeous, modest and gets lost easily in Calebs cavernous home. She is especially attracted to the library, a place jammed with the lore of the non-dead and swirling with threatening spirits. Caleb is infatuated with her, but hesitant to hurt her. He keeps his vampirish desires under wraps as much as he can, but he does use his special powers to enter Jennas mind and plant visions that attract and confuse her. Caleb has superhuman strength and speed. And, of course, he is chained to his appetite for blood. Its the old question: Can these two people, made so very differently and yet obviously made for each other, find a way of surviving the curse of difference? The distance between them narrows when it is discovered that Jenna is of faerie stuff with powers of her own that will bloom on her 25th birthday. Those powers are challenged by great dangers, however. So here it comes. The authors art lies in not letting her novel a combination romance, gothic paranormal romp and satire, too take itself too seriously. Ms. Lender lovingly plays with genre conventions, letting them butt heads and intertwine. Much here is preposterous, but she is such a fine writer that she can build up an amazing sense of verisimilitude. Then she turns a magic corner and allows us to laugh at it all and at ourselves. I believe Ms. Lender will find a thankful audience for May Your Heart Be Light, a highly imaginative tale, laced with erotic teasers and with a sensitive vampire twist. You can meet her and other Southwest Florida writers at the Port Charlotte Family Book Fair (see box). 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.

NEW! p leszoo F ami ly. d Naples, FL a camel a nd w ild cruise a ni mal keepers NEW! Red Ruffed Lemurs! ARTS COMMENTARY LAB Theater offers food for thought with ArtIt all starts when Serge (Scott Carpenter) buys a piece of art. Its a 5-foot by 4-foot white-on-white painting. Hes paid 200,000 francs for it (approximately $188,537 in U.S. dollars). His longtime friend, Marc (J. Mitchell Haley), thinks its ridiculous. Marcs taste in art is very conservative and runs toward the representational. He doesnt understand contemporary art and thinks the painting Serge has purchased is a joke. And Serge, of course, is offended by his reaction. Their mutual friend, Yvan (Miguel Cintron) is stuck in the middle, trying to please and appease them both. And so begins Art. Its a popular play, by my calculation at least the sixth production of Art in Southwest Florida. Its a community theater favorite, in part because it requires just three actors and a minimal set. But its not that easy to direct or perform. Though there might not seem to be much action on stage the three characters visit each others homes and talk about art and friendship theres a lot going on emotionally. The tone veers wildly and allegiances change. French playwright Yasmina Reza (God of Carnage) has written layers upon layers in the dialogue and monologues of Art. (The actors, on occasion, step to the side of the stage and directly address the audience. There are also a couple of other monologues tucked into the play.) Art originated in Paris in 1994 and opened two years later in Londons West End, where it ran for eight years. In the U.S., it received the New York Drama Critics Circle Award and a Tony Award for Best Play. It is not everyones cup of tea, but its a treasure chest for those who love intellectual discussion and word play. And LAB Theaters production is a decent one, though local theatergoers may be forgiven if theyre suffering from Art fatigue. After all, the play has been put on by numerous troupes in Lee and Collier counties. But it would be a shame to stay away for that reason, as this is a production worthy of being seen. Director Annette Trossbach keeps the pace moving and the dialogue lively. Nothing drags here. The set by Michael Eyth is minimalist: three large gray panels that act as the walls of the three friends homes, a black bench and a black stool. Thats it. And its a smart choice, not just for economic reasons. First of all, the set echoes the minimalism of Serges painting. And also, without visual distraction, the audience is forced to concentrate more on the words of this play. There are just a couple minor missteps. When Yvan is having a meltdown about his impending marriage and the difficulties of in-laws and stepmothers, the actor wanders aimlessly about the stage, his movements in seeming contradiction to his manic monologue. And although the characters are Parisian, their clothing screams American. I dont believe they are European at all. (Ms. Trossbach does do something clever with the costuming deep into the play; she has all three men each wear a shirt in a primary color: yellow, blue and red, though Mr. Carpenters shirt is more pinkish than red.) This is a play about the nature of art and the art of friendship. The modern art world is, admittedly, a surreal place, where astronomical prices can be set by an artists notoriety, whether he or she has recently died, how good his marketing is or whether hes done something outrageous in the news any number of other things that have nothing to do with the actual work itself. Some feel it is all just a big scam. Marc cant believe Serge likes the painting hes bought, because he doesnt like it or understand it. Serge thinks Marc is just being overbearing and controlling. Mr. Carpenter plays Serge as haughty and just a little pretentious, while Mr. Haleys Marc is smugly self-righteous and a little superior. And poor Yvan, dealing with plans for his upcoming nuptials, is surprised by his friends sudden bickering and fault-finding. He just wants them all to get along. Art not only pokes fun at the art world and its pretentions, questioning what makes certain pieces of art more valuable than others, but it also examines what binds us to each other, what binds us to our friends. What do we do when longtime friends change or mature? Deep down, do we want to keep our friends stuck in certain roles or boxes? What do we do when our tastes vary widely, or a friends tastes or values clash with our own? LAB Theaters Art is smart and minimalist, a production that, despite being late to the party, insists on being heard.Nancys PickJerry Casale, founder, vocalist, bass guitar/synthesizer player for the punk/New Wave band DEVO, will give a lecture in the library at Florida SouthWestern State College-Fort Myers at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 11. Mr. Casale co-wrote many of the groups famous songs, including Whip It, Beautiful World and Freedom of Choice, designed their stage shows and costumes and directed their music videos. His lecture, We Must Repeat, is part of the Bob Rauschenberg Gallerys ArtSPEAK@FSW series. (Previous speakers include actor/ movie director Crispin Hellion Glover and performance artist Laurie Anderson.) He has said, in part, that his talk, which looks at the intersection of culture, politics and the artists personal journey, will argue that a creative response to lifes apparent absurdity is the artists attempt to restore order and spirituality in the face of the endless cycle of the simultaneous forces of evolution and devolution Admission is free.

Uncross those fingers and believe that youre going to do well. And keep in mind that so many people have faith in your ability to succeed. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Testing the waters is a good way of learning about an opportunity before plunging right in. Ask more questions and be alert to any attempts to avoid giving complete answers. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Time is on your side in the early part of the week. But anything left undone by midweek will need to be put into rush mode. The weekend offers choices for you and someone special. TAURUS (April 30 to May 20) Finally getting credit for a contribution is nice for all you idea-generating Ferdinands and Fernandas. But dont sit on your laurels under the cork tree. Use it as a first step to a bigger opportunity. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Despite the progress made, a hint of doubt might set in. Thats OK. You need to stop and consider not only what youre doing but also how you are doing. Make adjustments where needed. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The dreamer is dominant in the Moon Childs aspect, but a dollop of hardheaded practicality is coming up fast and jockeying for space. The challenge is to make room for both modes. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Its a good week for Leos and Leonas to start assessing what theyve done and what they plan to do. Moving to a new environment -home or job-related -is a possibility for some Cats. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) The week calls for Virgos to make tough decisions, but in a way that leaves the door open for changes. Ask for advice from someone who has been in the position youre in now. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Disappointments are never easy to take, but you have the ability to learn from them and go on to success. Meanwhile, continue to build up your contacts. Youll need them soon. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Things might still be going much too slowly to suit you. But you need the time to make sure theyre going in the right direction. Its easier to make a course correction now rather than later. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Showing some temperament at the way things are going is one way of getting your point across. Just dont overdo it, or you risk turning away more-moderate supporters. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Things could change more quickly this week than you like. But dont fret; youll most likely find that youre up to the challenges. The weekend offers much-needed relaxation. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for making people and animals, too feel special and loved. PUZZLES

Cooking Classes Every Saturday Afternoon CONTRACT BRIDGEAn exceptional exceptionBY STEVE BECKERWinning at bridge is more a question of how many mistakes you make rather than how often you make brilliant bids or plays. Mistakes can be made for any number of reasons, but most often they are due to the tendency of players to follow general rules blindly, instead of reasoning things out for themselves. Consider this deal where West had to decide what to lead after cashing his A-K-Q of clubs. In practice, he led a spade, hoping to find his partner with the king, and South had the rest of the tricks. West should have done better. He should have realized that not only was South likely to have the king of spades for his opening bid, but that even if East had the king, there was nothing to be gained by leading a spade at this point. Instead, West should have led the four of clubs! After East ruffed with the ten, West's jack would have become the setting trick. West should reason that not only is there a possibility that his partner could have the ten of trumps, but that nothing can be lost by leading a club no matter what East's trump holding is. Thus, if East has, say, the lowest missing trump the seven South will be forced to overruff the seven with the eight in order to win the trick. The spade finesse if South needs it to make the contract will still have to be attempted. And if East has no trumps at all, then declarer with seven hearts, the A-K of diamonds and the ace of spades has 10 unassailable tricks. It is true that a defender rarely makes a play of the type recommended here because all players have been indoctrinated with the general rule that one does not present declarer with the opportunity for a ruff-and-discard. But in this situation, it is known that declarer cannot gain a trick by the club lead. It therefore behooves West to put the four of clubs on the table at trick four.

February 20 and 21 10:00 am 5:00 pm Cambier Park, Naples Sponsored by: FILM CAPSULESHail, Caesar! 1/2(George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Josh Brolin) In 1950s Hollywood, a studio boss (Mr. Brolin) struggles to find his star actor (Mr. Clooney) after he goes missing. Neither funny nor smart, its a major disappointment from the Coen Bros. (The Big Lebowski). Rated PG-13.The Finest Hours (Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, Eric Bana) In the winter of 1952, f our men in the Coast Guard set sail near Cape Cod, Mass., to save the survivors of a shipwrecked oil tanker. Its a harrowing action drama with solid visual effects and action. Rated PG-13.45 Years 1/2(Charlotte Rampling, Tom Courtenay, Geraldine James) In the week leading up to their 45th anniversary party, Geoff (Mr. Courtenay) and Kate (Ms. Rampling) discover surprising news from Geoffs past that shakes the foundation of their marriage. The story feels honest and realistic, and Ms. Rampling deserves her Oscar nomination (note how she emotes with her body and face, not just her words). Rated R.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.Kung Fu Panda 3 1/2(Voices of Jack Black, J.K. 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.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) over writes and under edits, 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.

YesIf years of stale romantic comedies have tried to teach us anything, its this: Being single is a lonely, horrible thing, and finding the love of your life is the best thing ever. With the release of How To Be Single so close to Valentines Day, the natural fear is that it will pander to this errant notion that life is always better with a significant other. Thankfully, it doesnt. Its not even a romantic comedy, actually. With true chutzpah, director Christian Ditter has the guts to allow his characters to embrace single life and eschew the romanticism that comes with finding happily ever after. To wit, the characters are an assortment of single types who demonstrate the various ways one can be single and fulfilled. Recent college grad Alice (Dakota Johnson) moves to New York City after taking a break from boyfriend Josh (Nicholas Braun) and starts work as a paralegal. Shes a sweet girl and serial monogamist who has no idea what its like to be on her own. Her sister Meg (Leslie Mann) knows what its like to be single all to well: Shes an OB/GYN who works constantly and never has time for a social life not exactly an ideal role model for Alice to follow. At work Alice meets Robin (Rebel Wilson), a free-spirited functioning alcoholic who goes out every night and eagerly sleeps around. One of the bars she goes to is run by Tom (Anders Holm), whos made womanizing such a science that hes even cut the water off in his apartment so his one-night stands are forced to leave. Living above the bar is Lucy (Alison Brie), whos on 10 dating websites looking for Mr. Right and insists she knows exactly what she wants, only to find herself unpleasantly surprised each time she gives a guy a chance. No, its not as consistently funny as it could be, but Ms. Wilson and Ms. Mann deliver some prime one-liners, and certain situations lend themselves well to awkward comedy. Its never raunchy (nor should it be), but some of the things Ms. Wilson says take a moment to register before you realize just how dirty they are. We like her. Being pretty darn original in its story makes up for any shortcomings in the laugh department. Whats more, the characters encompass a variety of ways that men and women can find satisfaction without a life partner. Indeed, the script by Abby Kohn, Marc Silverstein and Dana Fox clearly suggests that being single isnt a burden, but an opportunity for self-improvement that allows the growth needed to be a solid partner when a relationship comes. So without making the most of being single, its impossible to make the most of a relationship. If you think about it, this makes sense. How To Be Single is as empowering as its name suggests, and as a result its an absolutely perfect choice for anyone whos feeling bad about being alone this Valentines Day. Dont feel bad. First of all, its a fake holiday. Secondly, you can view the characters in the movie as kindred spirits who understand your situation and have found a way to make the most of it. Surely, you can too. o s t 1 a w s dan >> Rebel Wilson is set to lm Pitch Perfect 3 later this year; its scheduled for release in August 2017.

Works in 12 categories were accepted for the inaugural festival. Cash prizes will range from $250 to $1,000. The Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs began its Films for Film Lovers series in 2008, offering one film each month for three months. CFABS now offers films every Monday, and in addition has included the Southern Circuit of Independent Films for showings on the first Tuesday of the month. BIFF tickets are $15 per screening; $75 for opening night film and party; $50 for the Saturday night film and party; $50 for the Tuesday night film and party. A 10-pack film pass is $100.

You get to see the spectrum of antiques, and specialty shows often give you an opportunity to see the best of the best museum-quality pieces often are among the pickings. That was the case at the South Florida Depression Glass Clubs recent show in Pompano Beach.Beautiful objects, often with high prices.But many of those prices were much lower than I would have expected red Imperial Cod goblets at $18 apiece, rare pieces of Cambridge Glass Co.s opaque colors priced at below $100. I remember a time when I was happy to buy those Cape Cod goblets at $20 apiece for resale, and when even minor pieces of Cambridges rarely seen Primrose, Helio and other opaque colors started at around $100. That was in the 1990s. And thats part of the cycle of antiques and collectibles. When I started collecting as a boy back in the 1970s, I was the youngest person at the show. I hate to admit it, but even now that Im north of a certain age, I was the youngest person at the glass show. Most of my friends and the dealers at the show easily are 15 to 20 years older than I am. The value of the glass, popular with folks who grew up with it in the 1940s and s is on the wane as those people stop adding to their collections or start liquidating them. Like me, most of my friends at the show were there for the sheer love of the glass, and had not thought of it as an investment at least not entirely. I think thats the best approach to any collection. Buy it because you like it, but dont plan to retire off the proceeds. Speaking of shows: The Naples Art, Antique & Jewelry Show 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday through Monday, Feb. 20-22, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23, at the Naples Exhibition Center, 850 Goodlette-Frank Road.

But the name Tiffany is on many different types of art. In 1893, Arthur Nash moved from England with his sons to work at the Tiffany Glass Works in Corona, N.Y. Arthur developed many special types of glass for Tiffany, including the famous iridescent Favrile. The factory history gets complicated. Tiffany added a foundry, survived the rationing of the war years, and started making new designs for metal work in 1921 under Arthurs son, A. Douglas Nash (1885-1940). And in 1928, Tiffany Furnaces became A. Douglas Nash Corporation. Nash continued to make enameled metal pieces, including cigar boxes, picture frames, ashtrays and desk sets, in designs similar to but simpler than earlier Tiffany pieces. In 1932 the company closed, and A. Douglas Nash went to work for Libbey Glass and the Pittsburgh Glass Co. He died in 1940. Some pieces marked with the Nash company name are appearing at auctions and shops. A bronze box with a colorful enameled landscape set in the top was sold at a 2015 Skinner auction in Boston for $1,353, five times estimate. Did the bidders know that Nash was the famous glass maker who worked for Louis Comfort Tiffany? Or were they collectors of artistic 20thcentury enameled metal, a collecting field that still is not well-known? Q: I have a glass hatchet from the St. Louis Worlds Fair. Its 7.5 inches long and has a picture of George Washington and The Father of our Country on one side of the blade and Worlds Fair, 1904 on the other side. What is it worth? A: The first glass hatchets with Washingtons portrait were made by Libbey Glass Co. for the 1893 Chicago Worlds Fair. The words Libbey Glass Co. Toledo, Ohio are embossed on the handle. Your hatchet, made for the 1904 Worlds Fair, doesnt have the name of the company on the handle, so it probably was made by another manufacturer. At least five different glass hatchets were made as souvenirs for the 1904 St. Louis Worlds Fair. Glass hatchets were made as souvenirs of several cities and events through the 1920s. Some have a persons name engraved on the handle. Glass hatchets are often found for about $25-$35. Q: I went to a charity auction in the spring of 1960 that raised funds for a community project. Sen. John F. Kennedy was asked to make a donation. He contributed a white handkerchief with the initial K embroidered in one corner and his name scrawled alongside it. Does it have any monetary value no, and if so, how much? Whats the best way to sell it? A: It has value and would sell well at an auction of political items or at a


shop that sells political items. Letters and memorandums signed by President Kennedy while he was in office command the highest prices, in the thousands of dollars. Your autograph was from before he was president and would be worth hundreds of dollars. Be sure to write a letter telling the story of where you got the handkerchief. Q: I was given a plate commemorating the sesquicentennial of Abraham Lincolns birth in 1809. There is a portrait of Lincoln in the center of the plate and various scenes, including his birthplace, Douglas debates, the Emancipation Proclamation, Lincoln Memorial, and other scenes. On the back it reads First Issue, Collectors Item with a description. It also reads Copyright 1958 by A.H. Zychick, Leader Building, Cleveland, Ohio and Kettlesprings Kilns, Alliance, Ohio. What is it worth? A: The design on your plate is one of five in a series copyrighted by A. H. Zychick and distributed by his company, Lincoln Commemorative Distributing Co. Kettlesprings Kilns is a manufacturer of commemorative plates that was founded in 1950 and still is in business. Collector plates have gone down in value. The value of your plate is $20-$25 retail. Q: We have a gallon whiskey jug that has a brown top with writing on it, Part of it says Italian Swiss Galaxy Wine House, Whallen Bros., Wine, Whiskey, Brandy & Gin, 217-221 W. Jeff. St., Louisville, KY. How old is it and is it worth anything? A: Whallen Bros. was founded by John and James Whallen about 1902. The company made blended whiskeys and sold liquor wholesale, retail and by mail order. Your jug was made before 1909, when the street numbers were changed. Its worth about $700. Tip: To remove the brown deposits found in old vinegar cruets, fill the cruets with diluted ammonia for a few hours, then rinse. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

CELEBRITY EXTRABlindspot actor blank on show details BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: I am so happy that Blindspot has been renewed for another season but bummed that one of my favorite actors, Johnny Whitworth, was killed off before we could find out more about him. Was he really killed, and will we see more of him on the show? Where else can I get my Johnny fix? Isabel T., via emailA: I spoke with Johnny recently, and this is what he told me about Blindspot: Theres not much I can say about Blindspot because Im not allowed to. I know that I got killed and I dont know my name. But I know that there has been the promise of learning my characters name. I dont know how that gets done, when that gets done, where that gets done, or in what form that gets done. If you want to catch Johnny on the big screen, his new movie, Bad Hurt, is set for release Feb. 12. The film (based on a true story) takes place in 1999 and centers on the Kendall family, whose members are battling emotional demons while caring for one child with special needs and another (Johnnys character, Kent) with PTSD and addiction. Johnny says Bad Hurt is a film he is especially proud of and hopes everyone will go see. I feel very blessed to have been a part of this movie. Its old moviemaking. Its heartfelt and dramatic and real and the performances are phenomenal. Michael Harney, who plays my father, and Karen Allen, who plays the mother, are pillars of this craft of acting. They are so moving. I hope people see this movie, because Hollywood doesnt make this kind that much anymore. The reason I got into this business was because of films like this. Its a heart-wrenching drama, but as it progresses, it has an uplifting storytelling element to it, to where when you leave the theater, you feel emotionally tortured gutted yet good. Q: When will House of Cards be back? Linda F. in WashingtonA: The highly anticipated season four premiere of the political thriller starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright premieres March 4 on Netflix, where you can either binge on all 10 episodes at once, or savor each episode like a fine wine and spread out your viewing.

Arguing might be too strong a word int ense debate is a phrase much better suited to the back-and-forth that ensues over things like window measurements. After spending 90 minutes of our lives in Lowes and many dollars, neither of which well get back, we had to eat something. Luckily, Millers is right across the street. We sat at the bar and talked about everything besides whether we were capable of hanging a door properly. My BBQ Chicken Flatbread, a traditional arrangement of barbecue sauce, chicken, caramelized red onions, Monterey jack and cheddar topped with scallions, hit the spot and elevated my blood sugar just enough to keep me from throwing myself from the car when we realized we had cut the blinds to the wrong size. One More Thing: Is there anything as reliably affordable and satisfying as Millers? I dont think so. Lindsey Nesmith

Like Fuji, it offers a wide range of sushi as well as cooked Thai and Japanese dishes. Stop in for the stellar sushi but stay to explore the cooked fare. Try any of the dozen yakitori items, priced by the skewer, and specials such as sauted chicken livers with asparagus or mainstays inclulding spicy tuna nachos and carpaccio of hamachi with jalapenos. A tiger roll (shrimp tempura with asparagus, avocado, rice, seaweed, sesame seeds, masago, smoked salmon, eel and wakame) was as wonderful as it was sizable. A nightly special, the mummy roll, contained spicy blue crab in rice paper with mango sauce, tobiko and gold flake. Lychee duck curry and grilled salmon with baby bok choy were as delicious as the sushi. For dessert, try the Tokyo sundae (sticky rice, green tea ice cream, red bean paste, lychee and coconut). Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2014 Kitchen 41, 3500 Tamiami Trail, Naples; 263-8009 Sous-vide is a well-known cooking technique in France and one gaining popularity in the U.S. Here, chef/owner Domenico Bosco takes it to the max with a menu that is almost entirely produced by this ultra-healthy method. Food is sealed in BPA-free plastic bags, submerged in a water bath then cooked at a low temperature for an extended period, sealing in flavor and vitamins. Mr. Bosco also shuns processed foods, MSG, GMOs and frying. The results are healthy and flavorful although they sometimes take a while to arrive at the table, so stop here when you have time to linger. The wild-caught sea scallops atop creamy pureed lima beans studded with golden raisins and yellow and red roasted peppers were excellent. Smoked salmon with avocado, hearts of palm and cucumber was first-rate as well. Lamb chops with a touch of demi-glace were just right, and the wild-caught halibut was moist and flaky, although it might have benefitted from sauce to enhance its mild flavor. A slice of gluten-free ricotta pie with mixed-berry compote provided a satisfying sweet endnote. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2015 Lapas Costa Rican Bistro, 26251 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 2217016 Costa Rica means rich coast in Spanish, but when it comes to the republics food the adjectives that come to mind tend toward the less aspirational. Think rustic, humble, uncomplicated. In addition to the expected homespun empanadas, tacos and arroz con pollo, youll find more ambitious creations such as citrus-laced ceviche, chile rellenos stuffed with sweet corn and meat, and a few fish entrees with tropically themed sauces. The ceviche was strewn with onions, tomatoes and fresh cilantro, along with diced avocado, giving this dish great flavor and unexpected creamy texture. The Chirripo chicken was draped in a light, slightly sweet stew of tomatoes, corn and other vegetables. Similar to paella, the arroz con camarones contained a generous amount of large, succulent shellfish along with peas, corn and diced red peppers. With large portions and sides of mild black beans of creamy rice, Lapas makes certain you wont go home hungry. Beer and wine only. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2015 Patrics, 2091 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 596-7708 Long-time area chef Patric Achilles and his husband, Gary Teater, are doing what they do best: breakfast and lunch in a place called what else? Patrics. The owners are as friendly and charming as ever. While the cafe is somewhat smallish, the menu is not, offering loads of breakfast and lunch choices, including paleo options (proteins, veggies, fruits, roots and nuts), of which the chef is a devotee. Want gluten free? Theyve got that, too. Those with no such dietary limitations should order the Brie-stuffed French toast with peaches for a decadent, satisfying start to the day. The pot roast skillet was a hearty blend of home fries, pot roast, gravy, onions, eggs, cheddar cheese and a fresh biscuit. Even if youre full, take home some homemade chocolate-chocolate chip cookies for later. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2014 Rumba Cuban Cafe, 1265 AirportPulling Road S.; 659-2996 The former Fernandez the Bulls southerly location is in good hands with Chef Jorge Reyes, who used to work there, at the helm. His family infuses Rumba with the same warm, family flavor its predecessor had. And the foods still great, too. Skip the mojito (they dont have a liquor license and use orange wine) and go for the sangria instead. Rumba chips (long, crisp plantain strips served with nicely seasoned ground beef) are good for a starter. The tamales were also tasty. Both the ropa vieja (shredded flank steak with tomato sauce) and lechon asado (big marinated and roasted chunks of pork) were excellent with sides of plantains, white rice and black beans.

Every week, Chef Koko (who trained with Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto) and owner Mike Cardascia would post photos of lush boats loaded with sushi, ramen chock full of homemade noodles and seafood, a rainbow array of seaweeds, Korean barbecue and other tantalizing Asian delicacies that they promised were coming to Zen Asian BBQ soon. Soon, it turned out, was a relative term. The visual torment lasted close to 10 months before Zen finally opened in mid-December. Now operating where Cilantro Tamales and Poboys Shrimp Shack once dwelled, Zen is a bustling Japanese-style pub awash in wood and brick and Eastern-style art. Theres a long and well-populated sushi bar where multiple chefs conjure up colorful sushi, sashimi and rolls. There are tables outfitted with Korean hibachi grills on which you can cook your own shrimp or pork belly or Angus beef short ribs. If you want something grilled but prefer to leave the cooking to someone else, try a dish prepared on the robata grill, a Japanese grill that uses binchotan charcoal that cooks at three times the heat of U.S. charcoal, giving the food a kiss of fire, as the menu describes it. Selections include pork sausage, Hamachi collar, scallops, octopus and lobster. Those with a taste for something more familiar can choose from massaman or red curry, crab fried rice, pad Thai or bulgogi. Then there are the starters, such as tuna pizza, Zen Korean wings and crispy Brussels sprouts, all designed for sharing. We split a pair of lobster buns ($9.95) that came snugged up against each other in a little bowl. Each simple steamed bun contained crisp fried lobster, cole slaw, avocado puree and just a touch of spicy mayo. the combination of crispy, crunchy, creamy and spicy added up to a delicious mlange of textures and flavors. Next came a tureen of tom kha ($7.50), a soup with a delicate coconut broth that contained kaffir lime, galangal, lemongrass, shrimp, mushrooms and whole grape tomatoes. The broth was a beautifully balanced symphony of flavors. My companions Authentic Old School Pad Thai ($14.95) was served in a way I have never seen (and I have eaten my share of this traditional noodle dish all over the world). The noodles were wrapped in a thin pancake with the shrimp on top, ground peanuts and bean sprouts served on the side. Once we tore open the pancake, we found the traditional slightly sweetened noodles intermingled with tamarind, egg, and a touch of fish sauce, all of which blended nicely with the shrimp, peanuts and crunchy sprouts. I ordered Kokos Hokkaido Ramen ($14.95). If you are picturing the packages full of cellophane noodles and artificial ingredients onto which you dump boiling water, banish the thought. This is real ramen, an exquisitely rich soup-thats-ameal. It starts with broth simmered for 17 hours, which is then filled with housemade noodles, calamari, shrimp, mussels, crab leg, corn, bean sprouts, scallions and a soft-boiled egg. Soul-soothing and satisfying, it was enough for two meals. Desserts are made in-house, too, including the Green Tea Crepe Cake ($6), a fascinating concoction consisting of about a dozen whisper-thin crepes, between which were equally thin layers of cream with a dusting of green tea powder on top. I cant imagine how long it took to create this cake, but it was just sweet enough, had an interesting chewy consistency and a delicate green tea flavor. It was served with the kind of fruity tapioca balls that typically come in boba tea, which added color and a sweet counterpoint to the cake. Attention to detail is evident in everything thats done here. Even my sake Mizbasho Ginjo ($16.95) got the royal treatment, arriving in a little wooden box filled with crushed ice and with two sake glasses tucked into the ice for proper chilling. None of the Korean grill tables were available, so we werent able to try the dishes that involve cooking them yourself. Those around us who were doing so, however, were clearly enjoying themselves. We visited on a Saturday night and, not surprisingly, the place was packed. Owing to the plethora of hard surfaces, the noise level was high, too, making conversation with my tablemate somewhat challenging. (That seems to be a trend these days, with restaurateurs believing customers find it exciting to be where the action is. Perhaps thats true for some people. I dont mind background noise, but I also dont want to have to shout to talk to someone who is sitting three feet away.) Nonetheless, the food and service at Zen are so good that Im liable to brave the throngs again to further explore the menu. Theres nothing else like it in Southwest Florida and, as of Wednesday, its now open for lunch as well as dinner every day. It took Zen Asian BBQ a while to get up and running, but the wait was well worth it.

Clubhouse under construction at Kalea Bay residential tower also rising quicklyAs the residential tower at Kalea Bay begins to take shape, so too is the communitys main amenity area.

The clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will include three individual pools, including an adults-only pool, a pool deck bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar and an Internet cafe. The 88,000-square foot clubhouse will be the recreational and social centerpiece of the community, said Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Nearby will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted tennis courts and 24 guest suites. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse area, to a designated Gulf beach.

In addition to the clubhouse, Phase One at Kalea Bay includes a 22-story tower with 120 luxury residences. It will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Construction on the first of five towers began over the summer with land clearing, followed by test pilings and then the drilling of the permanent pilings. As of early February, the towers sixth floor is visible from Vanderbilt Drive. Im happy to report construction is ahead of schedule, stated Wilson.

Mangrove Bay: entertain at home in spectacular styleAt Mangrove Bay, elegant flowing floor plans are designed to bring the luxurious coastal Old Naples experience inside with spacious and airy designs, each of which comes with its own private boat slip. With only 53 residences comprising this exclusive community situated along the Gordon River between the crossroads of the elegant and effervescent Fifth Avenue South and historic Tin City, and the verdant natural setting of the Gordon River Greenway, Mangrove Bay is the perfect place to entertain guests or just relax both indoors and out. The first step into the entryway to the kitchen, dining, and great room areas create a cinematic approach to one of the best waterway and mangrove-lined views in town, notes Matthew Kragh of MHK Architecture and Planning. This design vision included putting the puzzle pieces together in a complex way to attain an elegantly simple solution. It was the development teams strategy that all 24 of Mangrove Bays floor plans very deliberately brought the Old Naples outdoor experience inside the residences. Harmony is the way I would describe these homes in one word, said Kragh. It is this harmonic conception that makes every home design at Mangrove Bay perfect for opening up the interior living spaces to flow seamlessly to its covered lanais, custom pools, and outdoor living spaces perfect for entertaining an intimate gathering or hosting a larger event. Whether your style is formal dining, or a more casual gathering in front of the outdoor fireplace on the lanai, Mangrove Bay offers a myriad of options to suit every occasion. The island kitchens, soaring great rooms, and formal dining areas that flow from one to another also lend themselves to guests mingling alongside their hosts as well as other guests. Residents of Mangrove Bay can also entertain guests by simply stepping from their door step to their private dock step to their boats to cruise Naples Bay, fish the beautiful backwaters, enjoy easy access to the Gulf of Mexico, and tie up to the many waterfront restaurants and entertainment venues available along Naples waterways. All Mangrove Bay floor plans feature all primary living spaces (including the master suite) on the ground level. Private-entry guesthouses overlooking custom pools and covered outdoor living areas are standard with the Courtyard Residence plans, and are offered as an option on the Waterfront Residences. Three remarkable model homes are available to tour at Mangrove Bay: The Amelia III waterfront design (temporarily the Sales Center), the Sanibel III courtyard design, and the Keewaydin II waterfront home. Both the Amelia and Sanibel models are available for purchase; the Keewaydin is already pre-sold with leaseback. The Amelia III Waterfront Residence is a four-bedroom plus den, fourandbath home with all primary living spaces (including the master suite, two guest suites, a private den) located on the ground level, and private-entry guesthouse above the garage. The guest house features a generous sitting room, scaled-to-fit kitchenette, private bedroom and bath area, and private balcony. At approximately 3,640 SF under air, this model evokes a classic seaside cottage, with intricate trim details, a grand beamed, tongue-and-groove ceiling in the great room, and built-in upholstered bench seats which flank the whitewashed brick fireplace. The coastal cottage dcor is finished in watery shades of blues and crisp whites grounded with traditional heart pine wood floors for a comfortable feel. Other key design elements include traditional bead board accents, bench seat reading nooks, cottage-style barn doors, and brick for the second fireplace in the outdoor living area. The Sanibel III model is a four-bedroom, four-andbath residence featuring coastal sanctuary interior dcor awash in softened aquatic hues to convey the tranquility and luxury offered Mangrove Bay residents. Its beach-themed aesthetic mixes dark, light, and weathered wood appointments with a cool color palette, perfectly complementing its limed oak wood floors, reclaimed wood accents, tongue-and-groove ceiling detail, barn doors, and custom moldings and cabinetry throughout the residence. The ground-floor master suite features corner-pocket sliding doors that open the room to the tropical landscaping surrounding the lanai and outdoor living area with its own fireplace below a soaring 1 -story covered roof, and pool and spa with a gently flowing water feature. The den and two guest bedrooms are on the second floor one with a spacious balcony perfect for extending the open feel of the room, enabling you to take advantage of Naples gorgeously semi-tropical temperate climate and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. The Keewaydin II Waterfront Residence which is already pre-sold with leaseback has a total of four bedrooms and fourandbaths, a second-floor loft area, and a private-entry guest house above the garage, offering 3,730 SF under air. Its airy two-story great room with a unique nickel gap wood ceiling has a focal point stone fireplace balanced by a stained entertainment built-in bar at the opposite end of the space. The kitchens exposed stainless steel hood boasts a quartz backsplash, the same quartz used in its island countertop. The Keewaydin II models groundfloor master suite offers an oversized sitting area with corner-pocket sliding doors overlooking the lanai, outdoor living space, pool, spa, and Gordon River. The master bath has a free-standing tub, oversized shower, and a separate makeup vanity and morning kitchen. Several of the superior construction features and luxury appointments found in every Mangrove Bay residence include concrete block construction for the first and second levels, solid standing-seam aluminum roofing, natural gas feed, private custom-designed pool area, spacious covered outdoor living area, custom-crafted Ruffino cabinetry, and Wolf/Subzero appliance package and every home at Mangrove Bay comes with its own private boat slip. Mere blocks from the Gulf of Mexico, this hidden paradise of only 53 residences set along the Gordon River offers a tropically landscaped neighborhood, world-class concierge amenities, and comprehensive property management services. The Mangrove Bay Concierge Building will offer private onsite storage for resident kayaks, paddle boards, and/ or jet skis within convenient reach of the private community boat ramp, and will offer three well-appointed guest suites available by advance reservation for residents guests. These models must be toured in person in order to experience the extensive thought that went into their conception.

New models grand opening preview this weekend at Sienna ReserveBe the first to see the best! Sienna Reserve, the intimate enclave of 45 single-family homes being developed by Zuckerman Homes on Livingston Road, between Vanderbilt Beach Road and Immokalee Road, has announced its upcoming model Grand Opening. The event will begin on Friday, February 19. The hours are 10 am to 5:30 pm on Friday and Saturday, and 11 am to 5:30 pm on Sunday. However, if you want to avoid the grand opening crowds heres a little secret. Youre welcome to stop in this weekend and get a head start on the preview. Our sales team would be more than happy to give you an early model tour. Andy Zuckerman, President of Zuckerman Homes, said the communitys three beautiful models, two of which are fully furnished by the award-winning interior design firm of Robb & Stucky, have really captured the imagination of those visitors who have already toured them. From the moment we completed our first furnished model in early January to the recent unveiling of the two remaining models, the public response has just been extraordinary, said Zuckerman. Every visitor loves the open, welldesigned floor plans whether they are looking for a single-story or two-story home. The fact that each outdoor living area, which includes a pool, overlooks our pristine nature preserve has been another reason for visitors to pause and reflect about the amazing Florida lifestyle offered at Sienna Reserve. The three models, the Hibiscus and the Magnolia Flex, which are furnished, and the Rosewood, which is unfurnished, perfectly represent the quality and attention to detail found in every home built by Zuckerman Homes. The Hibiscus is a single-story, threebedroom plus study/three-bath home with 2,566 square feet under air and 3,378 total square feet. The Magnolia Flex is a two-story, four-bedroom plus game room and media room/three full-bath/two halfbath home. It has 4,004 square feet under air and 4,855 total square feet. The two-story Rosewood is an incredible five-bedroom plus study and clubroom/five-and-a-half-bath home with 4,971 square feet under air and 5,997 total square feet. For the record, a total of eight floor plans are available at Sienna Reserve. Prices start in the mid-$600s. For a limited opportunity, Sienna Reserve purchasers are eligible to receive complimentary temporary privileges to all Tiburon Golf Club amenities, and Sienna Reserve homeowners are eligible to become members of the exclusive Tiburon Golf Club, which is located only minutes away. We might be calling the upcoming event our model grand opening, but in reality its the communitys grand opening as well, stated Zuckerman. Our grand entrance, which was recently completed, is also turning heads. Its definitely an attention grabber as visitors turn off Livingston Road and into the community. Sienna Reserves Grand Entrance includes a palmand flower-lined brickpaver 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 Reserve. Our entrance as well as the architectural features found along our winding streets were designed to set the relaxing tone for the entire community, added Zuckerman. Sienna Reserves beautiful gated entrance, stunning models and lush, tropical landscaping have been attracting buyers. As of mid-February, almost two-thirds of the communitys 45 homes have been sold. Buyers are thrilled to learn only 14 of the communitys 30 acres are being developed. The remaining 16 acres comprise a freshwater lake and untouched nature preserve. The fact that no two homes back up to each other, and have either a lake or preserve view, is another reason people love Sienna Reserve. According to Zuckerman, another major selling point is Sienna Reserves size. In many cases bigger is not always better. Our research indicates buyers are looking for a more intimate community to call home. A place close to the city, yet in harmony with nature. A place where neighbor knows neighbor. With only 45 homes, thats exactly what we deliver. Zuckerman Homes also welcomes future residents to customize their home something usually only offered in communities priced much higher. Everyones lifestyle is different. They have different needs, said Zuckerman. As a family-run building company no one knows that better than we do. Well do everything we can to customize a home to our buyers specifications. Sienna Reserves location is another reason the community is more than half sold prior to its models grand opening. It is close to downtown Naples and its world-renowned shopping districts of Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South, said Zuckerman. Its also within minutes of Mercato, one of the most popular upscale shopping, dining and entertainment areas in town. In addition, Sienna Reserve is close to the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, the Naples Pier, fine restaurants, Germain Arena, the site for many sporting and entertainment events, and the Southwest Florida International Airport. Its also an enjoyable stroll to North Collier Regional Park, one of the countys premier parks. It features walking trails and boardwalks, fishing lakes, a fitness center complex, a world-class childrens museum and soccer and softball fields. Dont forget to stop by this weekend and take the tour. Were so proud of our models and our community we just cant wait for you to see for yourself.

BY LINDA DONNELLYSpecial to Florida WeeklyKnown as The Light Lady since 1984, Lynne Stambouly is senior lighting designer at Lighting Firsts Specialty Lighting Division in Southwest Florida. Her background includes owning her own lighting showroom, being the goto lighting designer for the largest interior design firms in Southwest Florida and serving as president of the Naples chapter of the Interior Design Society. Q: Why is it important to consult with a professional lighting designer when replacing or putting new lighting in your home? A: Lighting is currently in the midst of an LED technology revolution, and it is important to understand the way that these changes can affect your home and your lifestyle. So many factors color temperature, brightness, size, lumens, energy efficiency, the final expense should be considered when selecting new lighting. Additionally, knowledge of safety and building codes is essential. A professional lighting designer takes all of these important factors into consideration, as well as assists with the decorative decisions, so that you are pleased with your investment for years to come. Q: What if Im just beginning the building process? Do I need a lighting designer that early? A: Absolutely. In fact, its never more important than at the beginning of the construction process. Most people dont realize this and begin collaborating with only their builder and interior designer, leaving lighting design as more of an afterthought. Costly mistakes can occur, such as poorly placed recessed cans that can create unwanted glare and shadowing. Proper planning for task, general and ambient lighting, and the highest level of lighting technology specified at the onset ensures that the client will have the most successful result when its time to move in. Adding us to the team makes all the difference. Q: Weve heard some exciting industry awards were recently won? A: We just returned from the Lutron 5-Star Awards ceremony at the International Lighting Market in Dallas. Our team not only won for Best Overall Project, but we scored the top prize of the evening for Best Overall Showroom. This is a huge honor and it was actually only our first year entering for Best Overall Showroom.

beauty A Pelican Bay FLORIDA WEEKLY FEBRUARY 2016 LUXE LIVING 9COVER STORY BY LINDA DONNELLYSpecial to Florida WeeklyCombining the talented efforts of top luxury home professionals can often create a perfect storm. And in Naples, weather aside, this can occur when just the right group joins forces. On this stunning speculative project at 6600 Ridgewood Drive in Pelican Bay, a previously successful trifecta has essentially hit another home run. Calusa Bay Designs Leslie Sherman, and Realtor/Broker Taber Tagliasacchi of Calusa Bay Properties identified this piece of land for their latest project. Pelican Bay offers an amazing palette for a prospective buyer, including three miles of white sandy beach, oceanfront dining, 27 holes of golf and a vibrant tennis program, and all within walking distance of Waterside Shops, Artis Naples and Mercato, Ms. Sherman says. Its the best possible location for a new luxury estate home in all of Naples, Ms. Tagliasacchi adds. Calusa tapped Matt Knauf of KnaufKoenig Group and John Cooney of Stofft Cooney Architects to collaborate once again, and the results are nothing short of spectacular. The oversize lot gave us the opportunity to create a gracious, updated home with maximum curb appeal, says Mr. Cooney. This team hit another home run on this one. The goal was to design a piece of Another home run from a design dream team AMBER FREDERIKSEN PHOTOGRAPHYThe centerpiece of this home is the great room, shown here awash in natural light, perfectly accented with stained open-beam trusses, a stunning furnishings package and Maggie, Calusa Bays good luck charm on every photo shoot.

The 20-foot vaulted gable ceiling in the great room created the perfect opportunity for a stunning stained opentruss ceiling detail spanning one end of the great room to the other. The ceiling detail is beautifully accented by the 12-foot double transom windows and French doors that flank both sides of the great room, flooding the room with natural light and creating a dramatic, inviting indoor living space. Mr. Cooney says the open, light-filled, spacious design, repeated throughout every room in the house, is one of the hallmarks of his companys design style. It, like this home, is simply beautiful. We were honored to be part of this team, says Mr. Knauf. Having completed several other luxury home projects together, we have an effortless synergy that allows us to anticipate the design choices more effectively. We bring a level of construction detail to our projects that is acutely focused on the finest finishes and trim details. From the custom transoms over each interior door, to the handcrafted millwork, to the concrete foundation and solid block walls, the highest standards are upheld. As you enter the 25-foot stone entry through mahogany and glass double doors, the spectacular central living area takes your breath away. The single-story 4,625 square-foot, spa-like retreat features four large en suite bedrooms, a light and bright dedicated home office, 4 bathrooms and an amazing outdoor living space complete with kitchen, fireplace, TV and remotecontrolled screens and shutters.

FLORIDA WEEKLY FEBRUARY 2016 LUXE LIVING 11COVER STORYA product of the combined efforts of Calusa Bay design coordinator Tatum Johansson and the HE Design team of Chad Elkins and Michael Hayes, the spectacular furnishings and dcor package incorporates trusted names like Century Furniture, Habersham Home, Baker, Hubbardton Forge, Charleston Forge, Legacy Linens and Loloi Rugs for the ultimate achievement in casual elegance and relaxed sophistication. Any time Leslie Sherman calls about a new project, we jump at the chance to collaborate with her team. We know the finished home will be something that we will be proud of for years to come, Mr. Hayes says. When I am out around town and I drive by one of our projects, I still get a bit of a thrill to be able to say, We helped create that. Design projects in the bigger metropolitan areas such as Miami or New York City frequently get the bulk of the attention in the media, but seeing a completed project like this reveals the quality, depth of experience and talent right here in Naples. It is apparent as soon as you arrive at the house that everyone from the landscape designers, to the painters and all of the other trades involved are high-end professionals, Mr. Hayes says. The custom-designed, wide-plank, French white oak hardwood floors throughout the home are from Legno Bastone Wide Plank Flooring. European craftsmanship and iconic design are paired with a light smoking process introduced for depth and subtle richness to the exceptionally wide planks and long lengths up to 10 feet, says Arturo Guido of Legno Bastone. The oiling was accentuated in the thin grain to create a finish which is considered by many as furniture for your floor, he says, adding, The final finish came together by our European artisans seamlessly layering contemporary and traditional elements. A state-of-the-art chefs kitchen custom designed by Calusa Bay features a wine and wet bar and built-in butlers pantry. Both the kitchen and its built-in banquette overlook lush, landscaped grounds, a 50-foot lap pool and an infinity edge spa. We have had a strong positive response to our Pelican Bay new-construction homes, Ms. Tagliasacchi says. The homes have been attractive to residents within Pelican Bay, who are looking for the style and modern technology that our new homes offer, as well as upscale buyers looking throughout the Naples market for a sophisticated new home. As Naples real estate continues to grow and flourish, it is homes like these that shift the landscape toward the sophisticated and fresh. Truly custom finishes from Calusa Bay Design, expert architectural design from Stofft Cooney Architects and the highest quality construction detail from Knauf-Koenig Group are what this dream team delivers to the new Naples luxury market. For more information about this home, call Taber Tagliasacchi at 287-0777, email or go to A walnut dining table by Century Furniture is perfectly adorned with a graceful custom chandelier by Low Country Originals. Simple skirted linen side chairs, a soft contemporary painting and a custom-finished Habersham sideboard complete this eclectic, elegant look. The master wing is a spacious, welcoming retreat overlooking a beautiful and private backyard and pool. A dash of plum provides just the right accent to the soothing neutral tones throughout. An especially favorite room in this home, the dream kitchen has a large island with 2-inch mitered quartzite counters and a custom 10-foot metal range hood. The hood, cabinetry and finishes, all by Calusa Bay Design, introduce a fresh, eclectic, yet elegant style that resonates throughout the home.

FEATURE 14 LUXE LIVING FEBRUARY 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLY BY KELLY MERRITTkmerritt@ oridaweekly.comAs Valentines Day looms large in Naples, restaurants are abuzz with dinner reservations, chocolatiers hustle to fill orders, jewelers rush to set stones and wine stores clamor to assemble Champagne baskets. For Rufino Hernandez and The Garden District, however, love is in the air all year round. In his overall business of design and dcor, Mr. Hernandez enjoys celebrations of love most of all. One of the very first weddings I did was for a couple here in Naples who had just moved into my neighborhood, he says. Walking my dogs the other morning I ran into them. They have three children now. I love that my flowers were part of their story." The Naples native has the Midas touch when it comes to helping people celebrate. If the flowers are fabulous, the tables exquisite and everything else ethereal and amazing, chances are the event was planned and executed at The Garden District. On the surface it may appear that Mr. Hernandez spends his time planning how a million moving parts will come together. Thats true to some extent. But according to Mr. Hernandez, his work is more about telling someones story. Once he decides to accept an event or project and meets with his client, he says, he sits down and writes. I love to write a story for people, whether they come in and say they just want flowers for the table or they want to get married on the beach and have reserved the Port Royal Club, he says of what could be as multifaceted as as welcome party on Thursday, rehearsal on Friday, wedding on Saturday and brunch on Sunday or as minimalist as a small poolside luncheon. Its about creating an atmosphere and all of the elements that go with it. He receives all manner of requests: No matching chairs. All silverware must be vintage. No round tables. He loves it when clients come to him with tall orders. But even when money isnt an issue, which is often the case, he says many of his clients shy away from appearing too extravagant. They want their guests to walk in and have Event specialist Rufino Hernandez holds romantic celebrations closest to his heartLaborsloveof TIM GIBBONS / FLORIDA WEEKLY JOHN UNRUE / COURTESY PHOTO SEE RUFINO, 16 Lighting.

16 LUXE LIVING FEBRUARY 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYthis overall vibe of feeling really comfortable. Mr. Hernandezs appreciation of flora and fauna goes back a long way. He grew up here, and his family owns Golden Gate Nursery on Collier Boulevard. He remembers fondly the familys pig roasts underneath the Australian pines and stomping around Keewaydin Island where the Port Royal element was present, he says, but life wasnt about being ostentatious. In that era, it was more about beach cottages and beach houses along beautiful white sugar sand with mounds of dunes of sea grasses and sea oats. When it was time to explore a world outside Naples, Mr. Hernandez studied marketing and advertising at the Johnson and Wales business school in Rhode Island. I was that kid who was always kind of organizing the parties, he says. So its funny how you do what youre meant to do. All of this paved the groundwork for his career, but it didnt begin with a fistful of lilies. One month into his first job at a bank, Mr. Hernandez realized a critical error: He hated every minute of it. There were cubicles as far as the eye could see and I asked myself, What have I done? he says. After that I went to work for the nonprofit Keep Providence Beautiful as the assistant director. My job was to go out and solicit the community and see how they could improve the neighborhood. It was a phenomenal job. Connections he made in that job served as a springboard. He worked in an agency environment and eventually went out on his own, doing events for some of the worlds biggest names in business, such as the Royal Bank of Scotland and Swarovski, for whom he did product launches and grand openings all over the country. They were the first group to buy out the Bellagios O for two nights. We recreated Venice in the ballroom, he says. After the big event in Las Vegas, he sent sections of the display to the companys retailers, which created a cohesive look for the Swarovski brand. It was a dream job, but at heart Mr. Hernandez is a family man.

father fell ill in 2002, he returned to Naples. He and his brother have run the nursery business since their fathers passing in 2004. In addition to designing events and beautifying Naples most beautiful homes, Mr. Hernandez takes pride in The Garden District. The shop feels more like a secret retreat than retail establishment, and it draws a most distinguished crowd. Most people are there to shop, he says, but a lot of regulars, including doctors and nurses from the hospital just around the corner, he says. They come here to just decompress or sit around and pick up one of the coffee table books, which I think is cool. In a town where shopping can be as much about keeping up with the Joneses as it is outfitting a home, the therapeutic effect The Garden District has on people has become widely known. When it comes to his own home, Mr. Hernandez is very private. Hes created an Eden-esque atmosphere that serves as his respite and includes his fourlegged children Dora and Luna. Its very eclectic and definitely has a modern slant, he allows. The one I dont do when I get home is answer the phone, he adds. When Im home, I like it to be about my dogs and cooking.

MAKEOVER 22 LUXE LIVING FEBRUARY 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLY BY KELLY MERRITTkmerritt@ oridaweekly.comIt was a Naples condominium quandary as old as the concept of a condo itself: how to make a small space bigger without expanding the square footage. In a resort town where homeowner associations dictate virtually every high-rise happening, there are limits to how far a contractor can go in a remodel. Fortunately, in the case of this Gulfshore Boulevard condo makeover, the remodeling team at Sunbuilt loves a challenge. Homeowners cannot attempt the types of changes that took place in this condo because associations are really strict, so you cant make a move without getting approval, says Sunbuilt owner Tony Felice. Plus, your team has to have the expertise to not overpower a small space while at the same time remodeling it to be lived in and remain functional. Due to association restraints, condo homeowners in particular have to some degree learn to let go and trust their contractors. Our clients enter our environment with an open mind and bring all of their wants and needs for their home with them, says Mr. Felice. The advantage we have as a general contractor is that we also provide most of all of the selections necessary to complete a project in our showroom, so the homeowner is not running around town to find this, that and everything in between. These clients had a wonderful shock when they returned from an extended trip to find their cramped condo space had morphed into an open space full of light and coastal appeal. But it didnt happen overnight. Sunbuilts architectural team wrestled with numerous challenges, from issues with tie beams and electrical wiring to the matter of creating a custom island for the kitchen. We referred back to the original construction plans to address a block wall separating the kitchen and a host of other issues, says Mr. Felice. We were able to accomplish those tasks through architects and engineers AFTER PICTURES BY TIM GIBBONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYCustom condo teamwork resultsin Gulfshore Boulevard transformation Before Before

and the designer, Tina Spaulding. He credits Ms. Spaulding for her attentiveness to the details the client wanted to achieve, saying she translated that into her design. Tina was really so in tune to what the clients desires were, plus she was very organized and professional, he says of Ms. Spaulding, one of several designers who regularly work with Sunbuilt. Ms. Spauldings choices in furnishings help make the home appear much larger than it is and complement the architectural enhancements made to the structure. These choices were of paramount importance in dealing with the many electrical challenges that plagued the project. Most of these condos have concrete construction and those original electrical plans dont lend themselves to new design; therefore, you have to get creative and build tray ceilings or find other solutions to accommodate the new design, Mr. Felice explains. We went with a very sleek ceiling detail, and the position of the long table and the lighting fixtures Tina chose makes the room look much larger. The proportions of what she selected are perfect for the space. The team merged a lounge area, kitchen island, TV/family room and dining area into an open space without any real division to become a main gathering space. Those changes allow the homeowners to feel part of whatever is happening in the open space and maximize every usable square foot. The floorings driftwood effect was a big part of the overall design that set the trend for the rest of the place as well, says Mr. Felice. The design of the office, which doubles as a den, has an aesthetic appeal, but there is a lot going on beneath the surface there, too, in hiding the wiring needed for the ceiling fan and electronics. Every bit of the cabinetry in the house we built in our shop a few miles from our showroom, Mr. Felice says. Having control over custom products gives you the ability to work with the space so there are no limitations for what you can build to work in that particular area. Art by local artist Arturo Samaniego blends beautifully with the design palette chosen by Ms. Spaulding. He has a great way of blending colors in his abstracts to complement any space, Mr. Felice says, adding the focal piece adjacent to the kitchen and sitting area is called La Tempesta, which translates to the storm. Perhaps one of the biggest challenges was the absence of the homeowners through the entire project. Once the plans were reviewed and approved and selections were made with the interior designer and contractor, they had to leave town. They returned, he adds, to a complete transformation from the original 1980s condo to something that reflects the newest in design and construction standards. They were extremely pleased, he says.

Self-taught and self-mentoring, they created a large body of work, despite facing many racial and cultural barriers. Mostly from the Fort Pierce area, they painted landscapes and made a living selling them door-to-door to businesses and individuals throughout Florida from the mid-1950s through the 1980s. They also sold their artwork from the trunks of their cars along the eastern coastal highways of A1A and US1. Using commercially produced paints and found materials, self-taught artist Purvis Young recorded daily life and events in and around the Overtown district of Miami for over 40 years. To protest the dissection of his community by the construction of Interstate 95 in the late 1960s, Young installed his paintings over an expanse of abandoned storefronts. Stretching for an entire block, the Goodbread Alley project, as it became known, was an open-air exhibition that resembled a mural. It drew a considerable amount of attention from passersby and the local media.Art in the Park 10 a.m.-4 p.m. March 5, April 2Get out and enjoy the Florida weather while you shop for unique art by local artists at Art in the Park.

Pitbladdo Holdings LLC 20 2016 Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest Western State College. These dollars will provide scholarships to local deserving students who are receiving state-of-the-art training to meet the need for pediatric health care services in the region. How do they do it? Through the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest, one of the top-grossing charitable wine fests in the country. This twoday event, Feb. 26 and 27, attracts some of the greatest wine and food enthusiasts who come together to bid on luxurious auction lots, donating millions of dollars to help serve chil drens health care needs in Southwest Florida. Why do they do it? The charity is made up of people who care about saving childrens lives. They are par ents, grandparents and neighbors who lead the charge toward a better tomorrow for the next generation in Southwest Florida. An example is Bev Cherry, trustee and secretary of the board of directors for SWFL Chil drens Charities Inc. We were introduced to the charity when we first attended the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest years ago, said Bev of herself and her husband, Art. We thought, How could we not help fragile children and their fami lies? Its not a remote concept for the Cherrys, or any of the trustees, who each have specific personal examples of times when they saw the need for quality pediatric care close to home. For the Cherrys, it was when the 4-year-old daughter of close friends became ill and was in and out of the hospital for several years. The Cher rys graciously welcomed the childs toddler sister into their home when ever the parents had to travel to the hospital. However, having a family friend to help in that way isnt the norm, said Bev Cherry. It can be an unbear able hardship for families when their child needs to travel for serious health issues. Our hope is to keep childrens health care close to home.

2016 37Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest HE 2016 HONORED SIGNATURE Vintner for the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest is Williams Selyem Winery, whose mission is to make the best wines, from the best grapes, from the best growers. We sat down with Williams Sely em winemaker Jeff Mangahas for his unique point of view on this exciting upcoming event. Q: How do you feel about sup porting a cause that benefits pediatric medicine? A: Having worked as a researcher at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, I was always around the end goal of helping people, which has left a lasting and profound impact on me. The Hutch is a pioneer in research and medicine both for adults and kids, and while I am not in that industry anymore, it gives me joy to be able to con tinue to support great causes that aid in the betterment of peoples lives, and par ticularly children. Q: How did you get into wine? A: I started tasting and collecting wine shortly after graduating from college. Growing up in Washington State, the wine industry was excit ing and constantly evolving. I learned a lot there and caught the bug. From there, my natural investiga tive personality led to me travel and learn about vineyards and wine in France, Italy and the world. After many years as a research scientist, I decided to make a career change and marry my scientific background with my hobby and passion in wine. I went back to school to get a masters degree in Viti culture and Enology from UC Davis.Q: Your pinots are among the highest-scoring wines. What makes Williams Selyem Winery stand out among the pinot producers? A: Commitment to quality through and through. We are focused on expressing the uniqueness of each site and vineyard. We have some of the best vineyards around, and everyone is committed to executing the neces sary steps to achieve consistently excellent results. Q: What do chefs generally say about your wines, and which foods are best paired with your wines? A: Our wines have incredible focus and sound acidities due to where we source grapes and how we make wine. Wines such as ours enable ver satility in food and wine pairings. The moderate alcohols also enable the wines to complement almost any dish. Q: What is your favorite wine and food pairing? A: Pinot Noir is versatile. Many of our wines have tremendous freshness and sound acidity that allow them to pair with very rich dishes. The most surprising combinations are the ones that seem out of box, like a robust Pinot Noir with rich fatty fish, such as arctic char, in either raw or cooked preparations. Q: What experience do you want the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest attendees to have as they enjoy your wines? A: I would love for people to enjoy the unique style of our wines and learn about how expressive a wine can be of a place through our thoughtful growing and winemaking process.

44 2016 Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest Building a Better Future for Southwest Floridas ChildrenA CHILDRENS HOSPITAL ISNT AN abstract concept for South west Floridians. Fortunately, its been a reality and a bless ing for many years now, and many people in the commu nity can testify to its lifesav ing power. Any parent whose child has suffered from a sudden life-threatening illness or accident can tell you what it means to reach quality care within minutes. Any child whose sibling is undergoing longterm care for cancer close to home can explain what it means to stay in school, near friends and still see Mom and Dad every day. Any patient who knows they can return home sooner because lifesav ing health care is a short drive back to their hospital can tell you what the loca tion means to them. Sadly, when this hospital reaches capacity, children have to be sent elsewhere, traveling far from home for the care they need. Thats why the new Golisano Childrens Hospital is so important. It will provide more beds to accommodate the regions growing population. Also, the new hospital will help families stay near young patients comfortably for longer periods of time, incorporate the most advanced tech nology, and attract the very best pedi atric health care professionals to our area with a fully equipped state-of-theart facility. It will make our community proud. A priceless gift to those who need it, the new hospital costs $240 million to build, and it is funded in part by individual donors and charities such as SWFL Childrens Charities Inc. Already the second largest donor to the Golisano Childrens Hospital, SWFL Childrens Charities Inc. has already donated more than $10 million to the childrens hospital and is poised to exceed its $15 million pledge within the next five years with the support of its trustees, and the sponsors and guests of the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest. This years event will help expand the charitys commitment to lifesav ing care and build a better future for Southwest Floridas children.

For a period of time, as they worked to get back on their feet, the fam ily lived in a bus, with McGinnis father sleeping in a tent outside because there wasnt enough room. The family now has their home back, but McGinnis still depends on financial aid to help pay for her education, and she works to cover the rest. Her scholarship from SWFL Childrens Charities Inc. has allowed her to work less and focus more on school as she completes her Associate of Science degree. Im able to be here and devote all of me to this program now, says McGinnis. Its made an impact on my grades and performance. Its really relieved a lot of stress, and Im excited to start my career. I feel well-prepared. In May, McGinnis will complete the program and prepare for the Dental Hygiene National Board and the state board necessary to become a licensed dental hygienist. In the meantime, she is putting her training to work by giving cleanings and oral hygiene instruction to children at the FSW clinic. Her work helps in-need patients avoid a range of serious health problems later in life, and the experience she gains at the clinic will help her perform on the job when she becomes licensed. We see a lot of children who really need help, and it gives me so much joy to see kids excited about their oral health and learning to take better care of them selves. It has been life-changing, says McGinnis. To help address the growing need for quality health care professionals like McGinnis, SWFL Childrens Charities Inc. has pledged $1 million over the next five years to FSW for scholarships, equipment, technology and software. Additionally, $1 million has been pledged to the College of Health Professions and Social Work at Florida Gulf Coast University over five years. An FGCU scholarship recipient, Ashley Saldarriaga hopes to work at Golisano Childrens Hospital as a pediatrician one day. The freshman is a Miami native who moved to Fort Myers at the age of 13 with her mother and sister. An active volunteer throughout high school, she has demon strated her passion for helping children. A full scholarship from SWFL Childrens Charities Inc. will help her complete her degree in Biology, a major milestone in achieving her dream of becoming a pedia trician.

Ashley SaldarriagaI think of each dollar as a pound off my shoulders, said Saldarriaga, who has worked two jobs since the age of 16 to help her mother make ends meet. Every time I hear someone talk about buying a textbook or paying a bill, I think of my scholarship. Saldarriaga says the scholarship has helped her mother as much as it has helped her. Ashleys sister also attends FGCU, and the familys educational expenses have been mounting. What Ashley wants donors to know is this: One day, not today, tomorrow or next week, but someday I will be a pediatri cian, and Ill be helping kids because of this scholarship. FSW and FGCU programs were select ed because of their proven success in cultivating the next generation of pediat ric health professionals, backed by hard numbers, including a national board pass ing rate of nearly 100 percent, and equally impressive job placement for graduates. One can already see how funds dedi cated to these local education programs are nurturing to the pediatric health pro fession in Southwest Florida with stu dents and graduates volunteering, intern ing and working at Golisano Childrens Hospital. Given the nationwide shortage of pedi atric nurses, Brigitta Schwingendorf is another compelling example of valuable home-grown talent. Schwingendorf is a graduate of FSW who has gone on to join the team at Golisano Childrens Hos pital as a pediatric nurse. The young professional always dreamed of work ing with children and taught first grade before returning to school for her nursing degree. She has been a pediatric nurse at Golisano Childrens Hospital for six years now. The new Golisano Childrens Hospi tal will attract the best health care profes sionals to our area, and the health/sci ence scholarships we provide will bring this initiative full circle, said Debbie Toler, trustee and member of the board of directors, SWFL Childrens Charities Inc. Many of the students educated locally will begin their career at this amazing hospital. TN Ashley Saldarriaga, FGCU scholarship recipient.

Mom and Dad say goodbye as she is taken into surgery, not knowing if her condition is repairable. Although she knows it might be too late, the pedi atric surgeon begins her lifesaving work. That is the story of Caroline Fennemore, and her parents, Kelly and Jason Fennemore of Naples. Caroline was born with a twisted bowel that caused her to vomit green bile from the day she was born. By her sixth day of life, she was very ill, but the cause was unclear, and the closest hospital wasnt equipped to care for a newborn. She was transported to Goli sano Childrens Hospital, where she received lifesav ing surgery by Dr. Amy Stanfill, pediatric surgeon at Golisano Childrens Hos pital, who untwisted her bowel and closed a hole in her stomach. She spent 3 1/2 weeks in recovery at Golisano Childrens Hospi tal, not far from home. Today, Caroline is a healthy, thriving 14-month-old who is beginning to walk, loves being read to and plays with her 3-year-old sister Ava. Her mother says you would never know it happened, and thats a beautiful thing. As soon as the transport team from Golisano arrived, it was like day and night, said Kelly Fennemore, Caro lines mother. It gave me such peace to see they had what they needed to treat her, the equipment and the skills that the other hospital didnt. It was a life and death situation, and that equip ment is part of what saved her life.

other equipment used at Golisano Chil drens Hospital to provide lifesaving care to young patients. Dr. Stanfill and other pediatric surgeons use special instruments for treating patients in a range of ages, from newborns to teen agers. Additionally, the hospital relies on the latest technology, and an array of other equipment that is anything but one-size-fits-all. Emerging technologies are critical to providing the highest quality care to our patients and families, said Kathy Bridge-Liles, chief administrative officer, Golisano Childrens Hospital. Just as many professionals rely on technology to achieve their goals, we will rely upon the latest technology to help protect the little ones in our care. To help provide everything a stateof-the-art childrens hospital needs to effectively serve its patients, SWFL Childrens Charities Inc. presents A Million Reasons to Give, calling on auction bidders and the entire com munity to help give the new Golisano Childrens Hospital approximately $1 million in special pediatric tools, equipment and technology to ensure quality care for young patients. From specialized surgical trays fea turing tiny tools to anxiety-soothing MRI suites designed to put children at ease so accurate images can be cap tured, each item on the A Million Rea sons to Give list improves the patient experience for little ones, and will save lives. The latest advancements help pediatric health providers avoid unnec essary pokes to locate tiny veins and utilize smartphone technology in the NICU to monitor infants who cant call for help on their own. Every item is important to the health and well-being of young patients. What we need are physical things, but what youre really providing is something intangible and so much more valuable, said Dr. Stanfill. Its lifesaving surgery on newborns that weigh less than 5 pounds. Its surgery for a teenager that might literally change the course of his life. For the first time, the Fund a Cause initiative is featured online, allow ing anyone to donate directly to the purchase of lifesaving equipment and technology. You dont have to wait for the event or even purchase tickets. You can view the specific needs and make a donation to purchase the equipment of your choice at any time. As a parent who has been there, I know the tools and equipment you donate will make a big difference in peoples lives, adds Fennemore. It is such an important thing to have the right equipment, good equipment. It saved Carolines life. TN2016 53Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest A healthy Caroline Fennemore with her sister Ava.

AT A TIME WHEN MOST CHILDREN are learning to ride a bike, starting kindergarten and playing with young friends, Avery McCaskill was fight ing for her life at Golisano Childrens Hospital. For 2 1/2 years, she underwent treatment for leukemia, including 18 hospital visits to endure lumbar punctures, bone mar row needle draws and transfusions. Not to mention, there were countless visits for chemotherapy. Numerous times, she was hospitalized because of the gruel ing side effects of the chemotherapy. Throughout it all, Avery did not change who she was, said Sondra McCaskill, Averys mother. Her faith never wavered and her strength and courage brought us to tears on many occasions. Avery has taught us all to be strong through lifes little storms and know that they will soon pass, not to take one minute for granted, and to love more and more each day. Now 6 years old, Avery is still at the hospital often for clinic visits, which sometimes take all day. The McCaskills are thankful to be able to return home at the end of each day, and that is only possible with a hospital nearby. Like many young children, Avery is naturally drawn to art, and the hospi tal taps into the innate joy creativity 58 2016 Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest COURTESY PHOTOS Artist Ellen Sheppard works with child artist Avery McCaskill.

brings to help young patients like her through the treatment process. For example, Avery first learned about her chemo treatments by playing with syringes filled with paint. She got to squirt paint all over this huge piece of paper in the hospital playroom, said McCaskill. The child life special ist made it so much fun, I wanted to join in. Now, as a Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest child artist, Avery has had the unique opportu nity to work with Child Life veter an and artist Ellen Sheppard, and a new art mentor, Joelene Black. This talented trio created the poster art that will be auctioned at the South west Florida Wine & Food Fest on Feb. 27. Avery chose to paint one of her favorite subjects, the wise old owl pictured here. An orange and yel low creature perched on a branch, the owls eyes say it all with an inquisitive twinkle that McCaskill assures us is a window into her daughters personality. The sky indicates a sunny outlook, and the optimistic tone is moving consid ering the magnitude of the young artists health struggles. Then again, she is triumphing over her disease, and there is good reason to believe in blue skies ahead. TN2016 59Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest COURTESY PHOTOS

Sheppard is optimistic about the future of the program under Black, whom she calls a wonderful lady with new ideas. Sadly, we have a lot of children who need this hospital, adds Sheppard.
