COMMENTARYThe new godsA retired Navy captain who began a 30-year career in World War II wrote to me the other day to dress me down. He criticized my notion that the country is still great. He insisted we are not which is why Donald Trump is right in urging us to Make America Great Again, he said. Consider that this nation started based on Christianity and the glory of God, and went from a wilderness to the greatest nation on earth in less than 300 years, Capt. William E. Nowers told me. This nation was founded on three documents, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bible. The last time we were great, the captain suggested, was about 1950. He may know many things I dont, but history is not one of them. The Founding Fathers may or may not have been Christian Thomas Jefferson was a Deist but they built the country not as a Christian nation but as a nation that requires a separation of church (any church) and state. Why? James Madison put it this way: to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in blood for centuries. Presidebt Madison warned Americans not to give way to a strong bias towards the old error, that without some sort of alliance or coalition between Govt. & Religion neither can be duly supported. Thomas Jefferson praised his countrymen when they declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between Church & State. George Washington was more blunt: The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion, he said. But were we great in the 1950s? Sometimes in 1954, for example, when the Supreme Court ruled in Brown v. the Topeka Board of Education that schools could not be segregated. We were also great in 1783, when Gen. Washington refused the offer of senior commanders to make him king; or 1863, when Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation freeing the slaves; or 1906, when Theodore Roosevelt created five national parks, 150 national forests and other public treasures with the American Antiquities Act; or 1918, when Woodrow Wilson finally put an end to World War I; or 1933, when Franklin Roosevelt kicked off the New Deal and got starving people fed and working; or 1945, when Capt. Nowers and his generation won World War II; or 1964, when the U.S. Congress passed the Civil Rights Act; or 1969, when the country put Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon; or Christmas Day, 1991, when we helped the Soviet Union dissolve without military force; or 2001, when we endured with grace and courage an attack on our shores from a shadowy enemy; or 2008 and 2012,when the country broke with its stained heritage of race and a mostly white electorate chose a black president not because he was black, but because voters saw him as the best man. We were great then, and well be great again. But in 1950, the nation was segregated by race. Schools, neighborhoods, buses, restaurants, libraries, drinking fountains, bathrooms, sides of the street or downtowns after sunset all of it could be off limits to blacks. We had not yet emerged from a post-Civil War century of American apartheid (more than 4,000 documented lynchings occurred in the United States between 1882 and 1968.) In 1950, Sen. Joseph McCarthy, who lied about his Marine Corps combat service in World War II, began his campaign of fear, slander and hatred that destroyed many lives, ended many careers, inhibited free speech everywhere, and created a mockery of the whole damn democracy in the middle of the Cold War. In 1950, the Civil Rights Act was still 14 years away. Women had won the right to vote only 30 years earlier, but not the right to work any job they wanted, or receive equal pay at any job they held, or be treated equally in any court of law they entered. In 1950, it was illegal for blacks and whites to marry even though nothing about it is mentioned in the Bible, any more than homosexuality is mentioned in the Bible. Homosexuals could be (and were) fired from jobs, physically beaten or even killed, in 1950. The captain mentioned a couple of other things too, as signs of our decline from greatness: he cited abortion and too much regulation of business as gifts of the new Gods. I hope he was equally as vocal in resisting the old gods, the ones who tolerated and condoned lynching, segregation, McCarthyism, the deaths and dismemberments of young women who sought illegal abortions (a federal ban on birth control, such as it was, had been lifted only 12 years earlier); and anti-Semitism, to name a few. When it comes to regulation of businesses by government of which the captain is a part if he votes and accepts retirement checks from his stellar Navy career the point is arguable. Government regulation at times has slowed or stopped monopolies, forced car manufacturers and banks and coal mining companies and steel plants and toy producers and the makers of weapons or aircraft for the Navy and other services to clean up their acts and do it right; the government has forced food producers to identify whats in the food; its required producers of legal drugs such as tobacco and alcohol to identify health risks to buyers, and not to sell to minors; and its forced developers to protect fragile lands and endangered species that would otherwise be relegated only to a future in photographs. Has government ever overregulated businesses, inhibiting growth and stymieing personal opportunity? Sure. The new gods arent perfect, any more than the old gods were. But they havent closed the door on greatness, either. a n m l e t roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

An Italian came up with the moniker decades ago as a concept in political science. Back then, it referred to a hard-core group of individuals who devoured politics as if nutrition for the soul, and made it their lifes calling as participants and activists in the business of politics. They devoted themselves to the process of public policymaking, seeking positions of influence and power in legislative chambers or the halls of government as elected officials, policy wonks or bureaucrats. The expertise they acquired through practice made them unusually equipped for wielding power as a political class unto themselves. Being a member of the political class also meant ascendance into the ruling class, an often-unstated objective of their political aspirations. More often than not, commitment to lifelong public service was defended as a legitimate means to make a difference in the world, and ones pursuit of influence and power was a necessity of ones cause. Thus, being described as a member of the political class was not always an accusation of nefarious wrongdoing or the kiss of death in a heated electoral contest. Historically, incumbency was considered a plus, not a minus, if ones accomplishments had genuine and defensible merit. But this campaign season, that has all changed. Grass-roots populists are in full-throated rebellion against establishment politicians. At their most radical, conservative voters appear fully prepared to throw the baby out with the bathwater, indulging in a fit of breathtaking recklessness to elect the ultimate anti-politician as president, the likes of which the country has never seen. Donald Trump is the front-running presidential candidate who personifies this dystopian descent into electoral suicide. He is one of several outsiders touting their lack of experience in governance as their most important credential for the job. Even Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio claim to be establishment virgins, though both belong to the nations most prestigious political clubhouse, the U.S. Senate. No one knows where this elaborate non sequitur will end, but few think anyplace good. We are in unprecedented territory. An article in The Huffington Post by Robert Kuttner reasons why. He writes, The hollowing out of democracy is reflected in the loss of confidence in public institutions, in the fact that big money has been crowding out citizen participation Meanwhile, ordinary people feel more and more alienated from both the economy and the system of government. In Kuttners words, we are in constitutional crisis one party destroying the ability of the government to govern, combined with a crisis of our democracy at a time when we need government to act. He blames the Republican leadership and the majority of the partys presidential candidates, noting that from the day Obama took office they refused to concede to the legitimacy of his presidency. Bad faith in politics is a serpent in democracys bosom, relying on the tactics of obstruction and a scorchedearth policy to impede any progress on critical issues. It has now come to the conservative majority denying even a hearing to consider any Supreme Court nominee proposed by President Obama. It would be bad enough if only Americans were privy to this egregious behavior. But the countrys unambiguous descent into reality-show politics is being globally televised an embarrassing brawl, complete with looney tunes, that assaults the dignity of the presidency, the gravity of the electoral choice, the intellectual capacity of our leadership, and the democratic values at the countrys core. To make things worse, the 24/7 news cycle cannot get enough of the vulgar and ridiculous to exploit, failing miserably in the debates and the news coverage to give the voters of this country the respect and the due diligence they deserve of candidates running for the highest office in the land. It is an insult to the intelligence and manners of anyone who proclaims themselves a responsible citizen and an adult member of a civil society. All said and done, these are strange times. Truth is now undeniably stranger than fiction. We are heading to some kind of monumental train wreck. Whats a body to do? Me? I am changing channels and tuning in on the fourth season of House of Cards. It is a Netflix series on cable that premiered in 2013. It features all our most cynical, off-the-wall theories about how things really work in Washington. It plays deliciously into our suspicion that Capitol Hill is a cesspool tainting the best and dominated by the worst of the political class. Its theme is uncomfortably familiar, a tale of Shakespearean proportions about the corruption and manipulation of our democracy by devious, Machiavellian personalities obsessed with power. But sad to say, real-life politics has gotten so bizarre, sometimes I cant be sure if I am watching House of Cards or just the reality show that is the 2016 presidential campaign. Now that is scary. The end of Reagan nostalgia?If theres anything we thought we knew about the GOP, it is that it is the party of Reagan. Paying obeisance to Ronald Reagan his memory, his accomplishments, his policies has long been the price of entry to Republican presidential politics. Yet here comes Donald Trump, who gives no indication of caring the slightest about Reagans legacy, and he has rampaged to front-runner status anyway. It is like Trump set out to kick down the door of the House of Reagan and the structure teetered to the brink of collapse, more decrepit than anyone had noticed. What Trump has discovered is that many conservatives arent as attached to conservative policies as they seemed; that labels dont mean much to voters; that you can bring new people into the Republican coalition instead of playing by the old rules; and that at least a significant plurality of primary voters dont care whether you bend your knee to the memory of Ronald Reagan. Meanwhile, Trumps rivals are for understandable reasons beholden to a Reagan nostalgia that has long been prevalent on the right. Their Reagan references stir the hearts of the old faithful (like me). But with every passing year, they become a little less relevant to everyone else. It isnt why they are losing, but Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio have been fighting back against Trump with messages that run in well-worn ruts. Its always a shining city on a hill. And morning again in America. Such is the hold that the morning-again theme has on the Republican imagination that, bizarrely, Rubio ran a Morning Again in America ad about how bad things are in the country. Is it too much to ask that Republican politicians come up with some of their own lines? Conservatives need to realize that all of America is not the CPAC ballroom. To save Reaganism, conservatives must broaden and deepen our understanding of Reagan. As writer Dan McLaughlin notes, Reagan didnt go around on the stump pledging fealty to conservative ideals, but rather explaining why his ideas would work in practice and why they were common-sense positions in line with what the voters already believed in. A new, updated version of this approach is imperative, given the new voters identified by Donald Trump and the blue-collar discontent that he has made impossible to ignore. Like Reagan did, conservatives must adopt policies that address the problems of today and sell them not as the artifacts of an ideological orthodoxy, but as practical solutions. They must reject Trump and his grotesque distortions of conservatism, while paying heed to his voters. At a CPAC speech in 1977, Reagan talked about broadening the party: If we are to attract more working men and women of this country, we will do so not by simply making room for them, but by making certain they have a say in what goes on in the party. That has to be the attitude of the GOP and of the non-Trump presidential candidates. If they dont understand that out of self-interest or basic political horse sense, well, theres always another compelling reason: It is what Ronald Reagan would do.

PROFILE IN PARADISEPutting down roots at The Garden of Hope and CourageThe Garden of Hope and Courage opened in April 2004 on the downtown campus of NCH Healthcare System, now known as the NCH Baker Hospital. The garden was the dream of the late Jan Emfield, who had died of breast cancer 10 years before. Her husband, Bob Emfield, and several friends made the garden possible. The tranquil and beautiful 2.5-acre garden celebrates its 10th anniversary under the guidance of Shalyn Ormsby as executive director, who describes the space as a peaceful and healing sanctuary for hospital patients, staff, caregivers and the Naples community. She is busy these days planning the gardens signature fundraiser, the Naples Music Festival, which takes place Sunday, April 3, at another garden treasure, Naples Botanical Garden. Festival headliners include the local blues band Mudbone, jazz vocalist Nicole Henry and the World Classic Rockers (an all-star lineup of musicians from Boston, Journey, Steppenwolf, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Santana). Guests will also enjoy a menu designed by Richard DAmico, honorary chairman of The Garden of Hope and Courage, and the team from Lurcat Catering. A longtime friend of the Emfields, Mr. DAmico is also among the founders of the garden. Although she is relatively new to her position in charge at The Garden of Hope and Courage, Shalyn is well prepared for the task at hand. She graduated from Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Mich., with a bachelors degree in hospitality. While there, she was a cockswain on the rowing team, a cheerleader, resident assistant and a member of Alpha Sigma Tau sorority. I really enjoyed the event-planning classes, she says about her field of study. I like creating wonderful experiences for people and making guests feel welcomed and special. Shalyn originally moved to Naples to work at The Ritz-Carlton Beach Resort and subsequently took a job with the Collier Building Industry Association. Most recently she enjoyed more than seven years at Naples Illustrated, a position that allowed her to work on several events to benefit the garden and to get to know the people behind it. When the chance to join the garden staff presented itself, she says, I took a leap of faith and here I am. She says one recent afternoon, as she walked through the garden to inspect some storm damage, she met a woman who was taking a moment to just breathe. She learned the womans husband had suffered a stroke a few days before and was still at NCH. She told me the garden was her saving grace in such a stressful time, she recalls. Moments like that are why I do what I am doing. Shalyn is married to Uri Ormsby and together they have two young sons, Oliver and Zachary. In addition to her devotion to family and work, she volunteers in the toddler classroom at Cornerstone United Methodist Church and serves on the churchs care and nurture team and its hospitality team.

Hit the road for guided tour of Sarasotas mid century treasuresThe American Institute of ArchitectsFlorida SW invites the public to hop aboard a luxury coach bound for Sarasota for the Mid Century Modern Architecture Tour on Saturday, March 19. Naples residents can board the bus at 7:30 a.m. at the Publix shopping center at The Vineyards; Fort Myers passengers will be picked up at 8:15 a.m. in front of the Ross Dress for Less at The Forum. Once in Sarasota, the tour will include stops from 10-11:30 a.m. at several Lido Shores homes that were designed in the early 1950s by Paul Rudolph. Included is the restored 1953 Umbrella House, called one of the five most remarkable houses of the mid-20th century by Architectural Digest and included in the book The American House: A Guide to 100 Iconic American Houses. The cube house was one of the first homes built in the Lido Shores section of Sarasota just beyond St. Armands Circle. The nearby Harkavy House, designed in 1957 by Mr. Rudolph for a Sarasota attorney, is also on the tour. Lunch from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. will be at the Shore Diner, an open-air, mid century Florida beach caf. At 1:30 p.m. the group will visit the Walker Guest House Replica on the grounds of the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art. The Sarasota Architectural Foundation constructed the replica of the original house that was designed by Mr. Rudolph and built in 1952 on Sanibel Island. The replica opened last year and will remain on the Ringling grounds until Oct. 6. Visitors can tour the interior and exterior of the 580-square-foot house and learn about Mr. Rudolph and the principles of the Sarasota School of Architecture movement. Ultimately, the house will travel as a mobile education studio to museum venues across the U.S. The 3 p.m. tour stop is at St. Pauls Lutheran Church, designed by Victor Lundy, and at 3:45 p.m. the bus will stop for an exterior viewing of Sarasota High School, another design by Mr. Rudolph. Mr. Lundys church design, with vaulted, sweeping curved rooflines and a large open space, is at once very modern and yet traditional. He also designed the downtown Sarasota Post Office and a pneumatic structure at the 1966 Worlds Fair and the New Jersey world headquarters of IBM. The next stop on the tour, from 4-4:30 p.m., is Cocoon House on Bayou Louise Lane. Also known as the Healey Guest House, it was designed by Mr. Rudolph and Ralph Twitchell in 1948. The architects had formed a partnership several years earlier, drawing upon each others abilities and interests. The basis of their work was in the use of innovational materials to address Sarasotas climate and bring the outdoors inside. Cocoon House was selected in 1953 by the New York Museum of Modern Art as one of the 19 examples of houses built since World War II as a pioneer design foreshadowing the future. The structure has been the subject of considerable study, appearing in most of the major architectural periodicals of the time. Today the structure is a regular topic in architecture school curricula. After Cocoon House, the tour bus will deliver passengers to a waterfront location for drinks and refreshment before heading back down Interstate 75 to Fort Myers and Naples. Return to Fort Myers will be approximately 7 p.m. and to Naples, 8 p.m. Cost is $60 for AIA members and their guests, $75 for others. Lunch at Shore Diner is included (late-afternoon refreshments are not, however). Reservations can be made at EventBrite (search for 2016 AIA Florida SW Sarasota Bus Tour). For more information, call Joyce Owens at 425-5773 or email jowens@ architecturejoyceowens.com.

FLAHARTY, MDTrust Your Face To Experience (239.415.7576Naples location!NEW NOW WELCOMING NEW PATIENTS NEW TREATMENT FOR GUM DISEASE?If gum disease is allowed to occur and progress from its mildest form (gingivitis) to its most severe form (periodontitis), it will lead to in ammation, bleeding, and even tooth loss (by destroying the bone that supports the teeth). Of course, the best way to avoid tooth loss associated with gum disease is to oss and brush regularly and schedule regular dental checkups and cleanings. Once periodontitis takes hold, only professional treatment (scaling, root planing, and antibiotics) can eliminate it. However, promising new research has identi ed a gene (Del-1) that can prevent periodontal bone loss by inhibiting the activity of osteoclasts, cells that absorb bone tissue. Subsequent research is likely to lead to new treatments for periodontitis and other bonedamaging diseases. Knowledge about gum disease is imperative to good dental health.

Many of the action items were generated from public comments during two workshops held last year. Some will be accomplished this year; others are longterm or ongoing. Committee members review airport procedures, research best practices, gather input from airport users and neighbors and explore new ideas to lessen sound associated with aircraft operations. In 2012 the committee launched the Please Fly Safe Fly Quiet campaign and continues to work with Naples Airport Authority staff to encourage pilots and aircraft operators to do all they can to minimize aircraft noise. The campaign asks pilots to observe the airports recommended 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. aircraft curfew and to use specific techniques that reduce sound. The nine members of the Noise Compatibility Committee are volunteers appointed by the Naples Airport Authority Board of Commissioners. Ernest Linneman serves as chair; other members are Vice Chair Bruce Bickelmann, Bruce Byerly, City Councilman Doug Finlay, William Goddard, Justin Lobb, Richard Mellon, Robert Metzler and Gary Revall. Committee members welcome opportunities to share information about the airports noise program. To schedule a speaker for meetings of homeowners associations, civic groups, service clubs or other organizations, call Diane Terrill at the airport at 643-0733 or email DTerrill@FlyNaples.com. To learn more about airport noise and the challenges faced in making the airport quieter, log onto FlyNaples. com, and click on Noise Abatement. The public is invited to attend the next Noise Compatibility Committee meeting, which begins at 9 a.m. Thursday, March 31, at the airport. One-man show examines issues of race, identity and family historyThe Hodges University Office of Diversity and Inclusion presents author and activist Michael Fosberg in his one-man autobiographical play Incognito at 5 p.m. Saturday, March 19, at the universitys Naples campus.

He grew up as a white male in a working-class lifestyle but set out in his early 30s to find his biological father after his mothers divorce from his adoptive father. Learning that his father is African American was a life-changing event that propelled him onto a path of self-discovery. The play examines the issues of identity, race and family history as well as the difficulty so many in American have understanding and discussing such issues. Tickets are $25 for one, $45 for two.

Newborn alligators are usually 6-8 inches in length, and they grow about 1 foot a year for the first five or so years, although each years growth rate is not exactly the same. At about five years or so, they lose their stripes because they no longer need the camouflage. Baby gators eat small prey such as crickets, insects, spiders, lizards, crustaceans, frogs and fish, if they can catch any. When gators get mature, they can take down small and large mammals, birds and even feral pigs and white-tailed deer. Smiley is almost always nearby her babies. It pays not to approach baby gators too closely and make mom worried. If you do, you will not be pleased with her reaction. Female gators try to protect the eggs from snakes, raccoons and other predators and their babies from snapping turtles, large fish, snakes and especially male gators. Mama gators are rare reptiles because they raise and protect their young from eggs to about 2-3 years of age. Then its find yourself another home. Most other reptiles simply lay eggs and leave their survival to chance. Never feed alligators, or any wild animal for that matter, because then you become a source for food. Gators have big nostrils that let them breath while the rest of the animal is underwater. And even though they have webbed feet, their main means of propulsion is their tail. On warm days, Smiley and her fellow alligators are often out sunning themselves. But gators can lurk in marshy areas, too. Alligators long reigned as the top predator in the Everglades but now Burmese pythons are competing with them for that distinction. When these two reptiles prey on each other, typically it is the biggest that wins. Briggs Boardwalk is open year-round from dawn to dusk. From January through March, Conservancy volunteers man the walk from 9 a.m. to noon seven days a week (except in inclement weather). A guided tour sets out at 10 a.m. daily. The half-mile boardwalk passes through six ecological communities from scrub to brackish ponds. Signs along the way describe the flora and fauna in each community, and volunteers help visitors spot and identify plants, birds and other animals and provide a spotting scope on an elevated observation platform overlooking brackish ponds. The walk is a Great Florida Birding Trail site. To get there, take U.S. 41 or I-75 to Collier Boulevard and turn south toward Marco Island. Continue on 951 for 2.7 miles and turn right on Shell Island Road. In 1 mile you will see a building on the right with a flagpole. Park in front of the building and take the path on the right to enter the walk at the back of the building. Please dont enter or go toward private building. You can also see baby alligators in the Dalton Discovery Center on the main campus of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. For more information, visit conservancy.org.

STARTS FRIDAY 12 NOON!Hodges U. honors Alan Korest as Humanitarian of the Year SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYHodges University honors Naples civic leader and philanthropist Alan Korest as its 20th annual Humanitarian of the Year luncheon Tuesday, March 22, at the Naples Grande Beach Resort. Born in Illinois and raised in Detroit, Mr. Korest was the first in his family to graduate from college, earning a bachelors degree in business from Northwestern University. There, he came to understand the importance of education, later calling it the single most important part of our lives. After college and three years of service in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War, he worked for his fathers small business before, in 1958, creating his own company specializing in industrial sales and manufacturing, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He served as its chief executive officer for nearly 25 years before selling the company to his employees and retiring. Mr. Korest and his late wife, Marilyn, moved to Naples in 1983. Since then, he has served in countless civic capacities, from city councilman and vice mayor of Naples to board member for the Florida Gulf Coast University Foundation and cofounder of The Forum Club. The Korests envisioned and oversaw the creation of the Bower Chapel at Moorings Park, which was donated to the community by his late father-in-law, Edwin Bower. My father-in-law was the most unselfishly generous person Ive ever met, and he taught me just how important philanthropy is, he says. It is our job to do good and enjoy doing it while we are here. About the Humanitarian of the Year for 2016, Hodges University President David Borofsky says, Alan Korest has been a tireless supporter of education and is the epitome of the kind of special person that we choose as a Hodges University Humanitarian. Previous award recipients are: Alan Horton, 2015; J. Dudley Goodlette, 2014; John R.

David Lawrence Center presents second annual Sound Minds eventThe David Lawrence Center, in partnership with the International Mental Health Research Organization, holds the second annual Sound Minds Music Festival and Mental Health Symposium on Saturday, April 2, at Naples Botanical Garden. The event is modeled after IMHROs worldfamous Music Festival for Brain Health held annually at the Staglin Family Vineyard in Napa Valley, Calif. The Naples Children & Education Foundation is the education partner for Sound Minds. The symposium takes place from 3-5 p.m. and is open to any community member wishing to attend. Keynote presenters include: Cinda Johnson, Ph.D., co-author of Perfect Chaos, A Daughters Struggle to Survive Bipolar and a Mothers Journey to Save Her. Brandon Staglin and Shari Staglin, mental health advocates and consumers, IMHRO directors and Staglin Family Vineyard owners and operators. Russell Budd, local mental health advocate and community leader and the founder and CEO of PBS Contractors. Ms. Johnson teaches about mental health conditions and disabilities in her work as a professor in special education. When Brandon Staglin was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 1990, his parents, Shari and Garen Staglin, began researching mental disorders. They ultimately cofounded IMHRO, also known as the One Mind Institute, funding it with $225 million raised by their annual Music Festival for Brain Health. Their uplifting message: With unconditional love, as sisted medical treatment and personal will to keep learning and growing, recovery from mental illness is possible. Mr. Budd fought the bipolar battle with his son Dan for years. With medication not working, electroconvulsive therapy seemed to be the only answer. Together they made the journey to Gainesville three days a week for months to complete the treatments. Today, Dan and his dad work shoulder to shoulder at PBS Contractors. The elder Mr. Budd is making it his mission to share their story as he advocates for all people affected by mental illness. Following their remarks, the presenters will participate in a panel discussion with Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk; Nancy Dauphinais, chief clinical officer at the David Lawrence Center; and Scott Burgess, DLC president and CEO. Mr. Budd and his wife, Katie Paschall along with DLC board member Patt Schneider are cochairing the symposium. Mr. Budd is also a director of the National Alliance on Mental Illness-Collier County and of Drug Free Collier. Related eventsA meet-the-speakers reception and concert will be held on the lawn outside the Gardens Kapnick Hall after the symposium, with cocktails, hors doeuvres and music by local favorite Kevin Bruce. Guests will also enjoy VIP access to the Garden until 7 p.m. Tickets are $125. A wine dinner for sponsors and VIP guests will take place Friday, April 1, at The von Liebig Art Center in Naples. The dinner will feature Staglin Family Vineyard wines. Tickets are $300. All-inclusive VIP tickets including the dinner, symposium, reception and concert are $425. Sound Minds proceeds will be shared between the David Lawrence Center to provide mental health and substance abuse services to local children, adults and families and IMHRO to fund its neuropsychiatric research initiatives. For tickets or more information, visit davidlawrencecenter.org. Due to limited seating, preregistration is required and will be strictly enforced at the symposium.

Vice President Andie Vogt and Sandy Stilwell, Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest Co-chairs Avery McCaskill, Leukemia Survivor and 2016 Child Artist Matching grant sets stage for a home for Gulfshore Playhouse BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comArmed with a $10 million matching grant courtesy of Jay and Patty Baker, Gulfshore Playhouse founder and Artistic Director Kristen Coury and her team are poised to bring a permanent home for the professional company to fruition. They hope to realize their dream of a state-of-the-art stage complex in about three years time. We will have a major, top-class regional theater in the southeast corner of America. Thats a big deal when you look at the national scene of theater at the moment, Ms. Coury said. Now that the Bakers have put some skin in the game, the race is on to finish negotiations with sellers at Naples Square on the corner of GoodletteFrank Road and U.S. 41 and raise $45 million. We have the feasibility study completed and are putting a capital campaign committee in place to raise money and match the gift, Ms. Coury said. For the last decade, Gulfshore Playhouse has been staging Equity productions out of The Norris Center, a cityowned facility at Cambier Park. The city has been generous about accommodating the theater company, and Gulfshore Playhouse has managed to flourish despite some limitations. We will make all kinds of theater possible that we couldnt do due to (the centers) small space, Ms. Coury said. We had to do smaller cast shows that didnt have big set requirements. We couldnt do musicals because we had no pit. All these things will become possible. Not only will the proposed 58,000-square-foot theater complex house a 400-seat main stage theater, but the company and the community will have access to a 175-seat studio theatre for smaller plays and edgier fare, rehearsal rooms, scenic and costume shops, an art gallery, caf, patron lounge, grand lobby and more. Much of the new square footage will be used as rental space for the community; it will also house summer camps and educational programs for kids. The company currently conducts 14 summer camp sessions, Ms. Coury said, adding, If we can do that at The Norris Center, what we can do in a wing dedicated to education will be outstanding. Another goal is to create a complex that is an arts destination itself in downtown Naples. Its a very exciting time to expand and build a centerpiece for downtown Naples, board chairman Bob Harden said. We want to make it into a destination where people want to come not just for theater, but also to bring their kids for education, to look at art or have a cup of coffee. The $45 million fundraising goal also includes $5 million for the Naples Square site which has been tentatively agreed upon $7 million in professional services and fees, $2 million for a first-year fund and $3 million for a contingency fund. Next up on the to-do list is to initiate the projects architectural study. Weve been putting the building blocks in place, Ms. Coury said. The effort to foster a regional theater company will pay dividends to the community, particularly since part of Gulfshore Playhouses mission is to enhance Naples cultural landscape. With the new complex, locals will likely have the opportunity to see and participate in groundbreaking theater. Its important to remember the national aspect as well as the regional aspect of what were doing here, Ms. Coury said. You might see theater thats on its way to New York City The next Tennessee Williams or Arthur Miller might be working on their next play at Gulfshore Playhouse. For Ms. Coury, the project will be the culmination of 11 years of serving the Naples community and fostering an environment that supports quality theatrical arts. Ultimately, you create a nonprofit because you want to do something for the community and you hope its received that way, she said. Its just so gratifying. Were honored that the community has embraced us in this way. COURY The new theater is tentatively planned for Naples Square at the corner of Goodlette-Frank Road and U.S. 41. It will have a main stage theater, a black box theater, administrative offices, set and costume design shops, classroom/rehearsal spaces and a cafe. This rendering represents the scope of the project and is not part of an architectural proposal.

CSN sends contingent to UNIS-UN ConferenceCommunity School of Naples was the only school in the state, and one of only 13 schools in the country, chosen to send participants to the 40th annual UNIS-UN Conference earlier this month. Completely run by students from the United Nations International School in New York City and held over two days in the hall of the U.N. General Assembly, the conference brought together almost 700 high school students from 40 schools around the world. This years topic was Medias Influence: Opinions, Activism & Outc omes. The students heard from experts such as Paloma Escudero, director of communications of UNICEF; and Casey Owen Neistat, a film director, producer, designer and creator of popular YouTube videos; Susan Chira, assistant managing editor for news at The New York Times; Trevor Johnson, one of Facebooks first employees who is now in charge of the companys Global Awareness Program; and Buzz Bissinger, award-winning journalist and author of Friday Night Lights. Representing Community School at the conference were sophomores Jennifer Labs, Hailey Wilson and Dan Zuloaga, and juniors Aaron Harris, Sydnie Lenchner and Zach Tretter, all CSN Student Council members. It was so amazing being able to sit where so many influential world leaders sat before and be surrounded by so much history, Ms. Wilson said. Some of the highlights the students noted from their experience: Ms. Neistats message that to succeed in life is to leave the world better than when you found it, and Mr. Bissingers reminder that education is the key. We just have to figure out how to use it against intolerance.

Congratulations to the newest batch of Golden Apple educators: Nancy Garousi, Tommie Barfield Elementary Jenny Godley, Naples High School Eric Mazurkewitz, Immokalee High School McKenzie Morton, Naples High School Bruce Peters, Lorenzo Walker Technical College The community will honor and thank the Golden Apple winners, Teachers of Distinction and Collier County Public Schools Teachers of the Year at the Golden Apple celebration on Friday, April 1. The evening is presented by Suncoast Credit Union Foundation and hosted by the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club. Additional support is provided by Adams Food Inc./McDonalds, Arthrex, CenturyLink, Conditioned Air, The Mary Ingram Fund of the Columbus Foundation, Moorings Park, Naples Daily News and NBC-2.

All Teachers of Distinction receive a $500 award, and the Golden Apple recipients receive an additional $500 award thanks to the Mary Ingram Fund of the Columbus Foundation. As a community, we have to place value on learning, and we must actively support it, said Cindy Helton, executive director of the Suncoast Credit Union Foundation.

One look at this coupe, and it is obvious that the designs main goal is to stir up emotion for the original icon of the 0s. It has the same front overhang that gives the headlights an intimidating furrowedbrow appearance. The sheet metal has the famous kick up behind the door that helps emphasize the power sent to the rear wheels. Even the paint brings up some nostalgic feelings. The color of the car seen here is called Plum Crazy, and it was part of the High Impact palette that was available on the original Challenger. Back then Dodge would charge a whopping $15-$20 for this upgrade, but today it is free on every retro ride but the most basic model. While the exterior has gone for a wild and performance appearance, the interior reveals a more practical nature. There are not too many large coupes left on the market. That gives the Challenger a few more inches of rear headroom and legroom than the other American retro coupes Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. The back seat can handle adults without a second thought, although the front buckets might need to scoot up a bit to keep a full carload happy. There have been huge leaps in interior design and technology in the nearly half-century since the original Challenger. But from the drivers seat, the interior retains an interesting lineage to the first car. The original door panels were long pieces of hard plastic, and this car keeps this appearance, but with a much softer touch. The center console and dashboard favored the driver in 1970. Today that focus is still there, and the years of electronic advancement are housed in the center touchscreen. Another hint of progress is that this muscle car starts with the push of a button rather than the turn of a key. But just like the original Challenger, this one feels like waking a beast every time it starts. The Scat Pack is particularly important here because it includes an upgrade to a 485 horsepower 6.4-liter V8 motor. This represents a middle sweet spot in the Challenger lineup. Our test vehicle can be picked up for around $40K that includes destination charges and the gas guzzler tax, but not any rebates Dodge is likely offering at the time. Theres a base Challenger that receives fewer aggressive accessories and 180 less horsepower for a $12,500 savings. Theres also the SRT Hellcat version that has 707 hp and a near 200 mph top speed, but it is a $65K+ indulgence. There are actually 10 versions of the Challenger available from Dodge, and the Scat Pack seems to offer a good balance of nice driving features without being too extravagant. This model even includes upgrades to Blistine shocks, Brembo disc brakes and Goodyear Eagle RS-A performance tires. Add this to the standard Super Track Pack that includes launch control, and it is a far more sophisticated machine than its 0s style suggests. Even with all this new technology, the latest Challenger does not stray from the all-out brute reputation earned by the original car. With so much torque in the motor, it takes very little effort to turn the tires into expensive lines on the pavement or to power slide through a deserted corner. This is not a tameless wild side, and so owners will get the hang of it within the first week. What might take drivers much more adjustment are the few quirks that come from the retro design. For example, the prohibitively thick c-pillar that helps give the rear its distinctive silhouette also means having to watch traffic more closely before merging. All it will take is one long test drive for individuals to decide if this style is too much of a personal sacrifice. It is with these purposeful faults that this coupe seems to strike the right balance. The appeal of the Dodge Challenger is about outlaw personality and the Scat Pack provides the power to back up this image. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

Let us help you 5683 Strand Court, Suite 7 Naples, FL 34110 Open 9am-5pm, Monday-FridaySurvey respondents admit to risky driving behaviors SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYAbout 87 percent of drivers engaged in at least one risky behavior while behind the wheel within the past month, according to the latest research by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. Behaviors include driving while distracted, impaired or drowsy; s peeding; running red lights; and not wearing a seat belt. There is a culture of indifference for far too many drivers when it comes to road safety, said Peter Kissinger, president and CEO of the foundation. The vast majority of motorists believe they are more careful than others on the road, though most of them are not making safe decisions while behind the wheel. The report found that 1 in 3 drivers have had a friend or relative seriously injured or killed in a crash, and 1 in 5 have been involved in a crash that was serious enough for someone to go to the hospital. Nearly 33,000 Americans died in car crashes in 2014, and preliminary estimates project a 9 percent increase in deaths for 2015, according to AAA. Common unsafe behaviors include: Distracted driving More than 2 in 3 survey respondents (70 percent) report talking on a cell phone while driving within the past 30 days. Nearly 1 in 3 drivers (31 percent) report doing this fairly often or regularly. More than 2 in 5 drivers (42 percent) admit to reading a text message or email while driving in the past 30 days, while 12 percent say they do this fairly often or regularly. Nearly 1 in 3 drivers (32 percent) admit to typing or sending a text or email over the past month, while 8 percent say they do so fairly often or regularly. Previous research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that distracted driving is a factor in at least 3,000 deaths per year, though the actual number is likely much higher. Drivers who take their eyes off the road for more than two seconds can double their risk of being in a crash. Speeding Nearly half of all drivers (48 percent) report going 15 mph over the speed limit on a freeway in the past month, while 15 percent admit doing so fairly often or regularly. About 45 percent of drivers report going 10 mph over the speed limit on a residential street in the past 30 days, and 11 percent admit doing so fairly often or regularly. NHTSA research estimates that speed plays a factor in nearly 10,000 deaths per year. Drowsy driving Nearly 1 in 3 drivers (32 percent) say they have driven when they were so tired they had a hard time keeping their eyes open in the past 30 days. More than 1 in 5 (22 percent) admitted doing this more than once during that time. Previous research by the AAA Foundation estimates that dr owsy driving is a factor in an average of 328,000 crashes every year, including 6,400 fatal crashes and 109,000 that result in injuries. Red-light running More than 1 in 3 drivers (39 percent) admit to having driven through a light that had just turned red when they could have stopped safely during the past 30 days. About 1 in 4 drivers (26 percent) report doing this more than once during that time. The NHTSA estimates that 697 people were killed and 127,000 injured in crashes that involved red-light running in 2013. Seat-belt use Nearly 1 in 5 drivers (18 percent) report driving without a seat belt within the past 30 days, and more than 1 in 7 (15 percent) admit to doing this more than once. According to NHTSA research, nearly half of all vehicle occupants who died in a crash in 2013 were unrestrained at the time of the crash. Impaired driving More than 1 in 8 motorists (13 percent) report driving when their alcohol level might have been near or over the legal limit within the past 12 months. About 9 percent of drivers report doing this more than once over the past year. The NHTSA estimates there are nearly 10,000 deaths a year from crashes involving drivers with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher. The association also estimates impaireddriving crashes cost the country more than $50 billion per year. The new survey results are part of the AAA foundations annual traffic safety culture index, which identifies attitudes and behaviors related to driver safety. The survey data are from a sample of 2,442 licensed drivers ages 16 and older who reported driving in the past 30 days. The first index was issued in 2008; the latest report is online at aaafoundation.org. Naples Premier Dentistry H. Anton Richardt, DDS Celebrate Your Smile...

Minto Communities has signed on as title sponsor for the next three years, with the goal to make the tournament an ongoing annual event. Its the perfect partnership, USOPC founder and President Terri Graham says about Mintos involvement. Mintos target audience is our target audience, she adds. Sixty-eight percent of pickleball players are over age 55. There is a perfect correlation between our audience and Mintos homebuyers. Isles of Collier Preserve east of Naples and TwinEagles in North Naples are among the developers Southwest Florida communities. We anticipated the growing popularity of this sport and have included pickleball courts in our newest communities, William Bullock, senior vice president for the developer, says. Considered by many to be Americas fastest growing sport, pickleball combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. Two, three or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball similar to a wiffle ball over a net. The inaugural tournament will have divisions for men, women, mixed, junior and wheelchair players. VIP seating, parties and live entertainment, fund-raising activities and a Kids Day are also planned. Ms. Graham notes that organizers estimate 10,000 spectators will attend the championships.

Mama's Back in Town! Take that, Portland!Seattles ambitious Office of Arts & Culture has allocated $10,000 this year to pay a poet or writer to create a work while present on the citys Fremont Bridge drawbridge. The offices deputy director told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer in January that the city wants to encourage public art and that the grant will oblige the recipient to create a work of prose or poetry from the bridges northwest tower, to help the people of Seattle understand the function of art in the city. (The artist will not be in residence, for the tower has no running water.)The continuing crisisThe dominant-submissive lifestyle soared to higher-brow status in February when The New York Times reported on the recent marriage of the celebrated composer of moody, queasy works (and compulsive dominant) Georg Friedrich Haas to Mollena Williams, who blogs introspectively about her own kinky bondage as The Perverted Negress. Friedrich had introduced himself to her on a dating site with the note, I would like to tame you, and credits her acceptance for his improved productivity because, he said, I am not (any longer) disturbed by unfulfilled thoughts. Although Williams-Haas is a black woman submitting to a white man, she explained that, To say I cant play my personal psychodrama out just because Im black, thats racist.New world order Exasperated, Columbia County (Pennsylv ania) District Judge Craig Long felt the need to post a sign outside his courtroom in January informing visitors that they should not wear pajamas to court. However, even Judge Long acknowledged that his admonition was not enforceable and that he was merely trying to encourage minimal standards. Microaggression: In its brand-new communications stylebook this year for city workers, San Diego officials noted that the citys then-upcoming Presidents Day announcements should, to be bias-free and inoffensive, never refer to Americas Founding Fathers even though they were all males but only to founders.Bright ideas The roadside billboard giant Clear Channel Outdoor Americas announced in February that it would soon be recording the cellphone locations of drivers who pass the companys signs in 11 cities in order to give advertisers more information on how to pitch products to people with those particular travel patterns and behaviors. Clear Channel asserts that no individual identifications would be sought, but privacy advocates fret about potential abuses, and even a Clear Channel executive acknowledged that the program does sound a bit creepy. (On the other hand, as Clear Channel pointed out to The New York Times, cellphone users locations and characteristics are already being extensively monitored by advertisers.) Medical marijuana will take on a new meaning soon if the Food and Drug Administration approves Foria Relief cannabis vaginal suppositories for relieving menstrual pain (from the California company Foria). Currently, the product is available only in California and Colorado, at $44 for a four-pack. The company claims the inserts are targeted to the pelvic nerve endings, but International Business Times, citing a gynecologistblogger, noted that the only studies on the efficacy of Foria Relief were done on the uteruses of rats.Not the usual suspects A then-married couple, both graduates of elite California law schools, were convicted of felonies and went to jail briefly two years ago for a criminal scheme inexplicably tawdry and in February 2016 lost a resultant civil lawsuit for $5.7 million to the schemes victim. A woman at their childs school had referred to the lawyers son as slow, enraging Kent Easter (University of California at Berkeley) and then-wife Jill (UCLA), who retaliated by planting drugs and paraphernalia in Kelli Peters car and then, a man identified via circumstantial evidence as Kent (with an accent as if from India), called in a DUI tip to police, resulting in Peters arrest. According to Peters, neither perpetrator has ever expressed remorse, and although Kent admitted to stupidity, he now complains that Peters does not deserve her windfall (like a Powerball winner, he said). The online-pornography colossus Porn hubs charity fundraising promotion during February benefited the Moclips Cetological Society (Save the Whales) in honor of World Whale Day on Feb. 13. Its news release celebrated whales sexuality that they, like humans, do not limit their horniness to procreation. The company said it would, from Feb. 8 to Feb. 29, donate a penny for every 2,000 videos played on its ubiquitous free websites. (That offer might appear modest, but a Seattle Post-Intelligencer reporter noted, over the first two days, the worlds porn consumers had played 532 million videos earning the charity $2,660.)Nothing more to see here?Additional Details Needed: (1) Andrew McNeil, 34, was arrested in Lincoln, Nebraska, in January and charged with disturbing the peace. According to the police report (and lacking follow-up reporting by local news outlets), McNeil was found around 11 p.m. naked and covered in sawdust. (2) Rob Moore, 32, was arrested for misdemeanor drug possession in Marathon, in February, but he had only come to police attention when an officer heard him banging on the trunk of his car from the inside.

A34 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 17-23, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYing our arsenal of dengue tools to learn anything we can about Zika. Ms. Isern and Mr. Michael, both biology professors at FGCU, have been researching the dengue virus for more than a decade and patented a potential treatment. Grants totaling more than $2 million from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, National Science Foundation and other sources have helped fund research; an additional $1.7 million National Institutes of Health grant has supported their efforts to develop a dengue vaccine that is now being tested on mice. The couple began growing Zika in a biosafety lab after the virus began spreading in the Americas several months ago. They are investigating possible Zika virus inhibitors and studying the differences and similarities between dengue and Zika. They have also been asked to test Florida mosquitoes from Miami-Dade County Mosquito Control to determine if the Zika virus is being transmitted locally. In the lab, which has an airlocked anteroom to prevent contamination, monkey cells are infected with the virus, which then does the rest of the work. They are little biological machines that are built to infect and replicate in host cells, so all we have to do is expose the cells to the virus, Mr. Michael said. At FGCU, students often assist faculty in research projects, gaining valuable hands-on experience and a deeper understanding of the subjects they study. Carolyn Barcellona, who graduated in December 2015 with a bachelors degree in biotechnology and a minor in chemistry, is one of a select group of students who have assisted Mr. Michael and Ms. Isern with their research. Working with the Zika virus has been almost surreal, she said. Weve been talking about it in our lab meetings for quite some time, but seeing all the pictures on the news of babies born with microcephaly in Brazil has made it much more visceral. Just yesterday I was in the lab holding a tube of Zika in my double-gloved hand, and I realized that no matter how this experiment turns out, the results will provide new insights to the scientific community that could ultimately be used to alleviate suffering in the world. Ms. Isern and Mr. Michaels progress with dengue treatment has put FGCU at the forefront of efforts to develop a vaccine against the re-emergent virus, which has reached epidemic levels in Southeast Asia and many Latin American and Caribbean countries. Their expertise in dengue virus biology will enable their lab to quickly become an important component of the scientific communitys response to the closely related Zika virus, said Robert Gregerson, dean of FGCUs College of Arts and Sciences. The students who work with Doctors Isern and Michael are contributing to cuttingedge applied-research projects. We are especially proud of this work because it will have a direct positive impact on human health in Florida and beyond. The World Health Organization estimates that 390 million people are infected each year through mosquito bites. Dengue cases are reported every year in Florida, but they typically involve individuals traveling through tourist hubs from zones where the virus is widespread. However, locally transmitted outbreaks occurred in Key West in 2009 and 2010 and in Martin County in 2013. Dengues flu-like symptoms are extremely variable, which makes diagnosis difficult, and a mild case can appear similar to other viral infections. There is no known cure. Transmission of the Zika virus by mosquitoes within the continental United States has not been reported, but some Americans have returned from affected countries in South America, Central America, the Caribbean and the Pacific Islands with infections. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 193 travelrelated cases in the continental United States as of March 9, with Florida leading the country; 52 cases had been reported to the state Department of Health, with three four involving pregnant women, and one case associated with sexual contact. Eleven Florida counties have reported cases of Zika infection, including Lee County. The others are Alachua, Brevard, Broward, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Orange, Osceola, Santa Rosa, Seminole and St. Johns. The state has set up a Zika hotline, (855) 622-6735, offering daily updates. Additional information is available on the Department of Health website, floridahealth.gov. ZIKAFrom page 1Zika is a virus transmitted by mosquitoes that recently spread to the Americas. Symptoms are usually mild, but severe complications including serious birth defects and various neurological and autoimmune complications can result from infection with the virus. Currently, there are no vaccines or medications available to prevent infection. Avoiding mosquito bites is the best defense against Zika virus infection. What is Zika?A. Zika is a virus related to dengue, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis and West Nile viruses, and was discovered in 1947 in Africa. It is named after the Zika Forest in Uganda (zika means overgrown in Lugandan), where the virus was first recovered from a sentinel rhesus monkey that was being used in a yellow fever research project; the agent was eventually described as Zika virus in 1952. It was fir st isolated from a human in Nigeria in 1954. Where can Zika virus be found?A. Until 2007, Zika was a relatively obscure virus, confined to a narrow zone around the equator in Africa and parts of Asia. In Africa, it was known mostly from forest monkeys, but subsequent work indicates that humans were often infected but not diagnosed with the virus. In 2007, a disease outbreak on the Yap Islands in Micronesia, at first believed to be dengue or Chikungunya, turned out to be caused by the Zika virus. Later, outbreaks of Zika occurred in Polynesia, Easter Island, the Cook Islands and New Caledonia. In 2015, a large outbreak started in Bahia, Brazil, and spread throughout South and Central America and the Caribbean. Large outbreaks of the disease have been reported from many countries in the area, including Brazil, Colombia, El Salvador and probably others that have not yet reported accurate statistics. In the continental U.S., travel-related cases of the disease have been reported from several states, including Florida. How is the virus transmitted? A. Zika is an arthropod-borne virus (arbovirus) principally transmitted by mosquitoes of the genus Aedes. In the Americas, the principal vector is the yellow fever mosquito, but the Asian tiger mosquito is a potential vector as well. Both of these mosquitoes are common in tropical and subtropical regions, and can be very common in some areas of North America. These mosquitoes live in close association with humans, and occur in immature stages in numerous water-holding containers such as buckets, plastic containers, discarded tires and many others often found around human dwellings. In contrast with other familiar arboviruses such as dengue, Chikungunya and West Nile, the Zika virus can be frequently transmitted from mother to fetus, and there is one documented case of the virus being transmitted sexually. What are the symptoms of Zika virus infection?A. Only about one in five people infected with the virus develops symptoms, which are considered mild. Primary symptoms include headaches, skin rash, fever, pink eye, general malaise and muscle/joint pain. However, we know very little about potential aftereffects of infection, including long-term neurological effects. Although the incubation period is not well characterized, symptoms develop from two to 10 days after exposure and last from approximately two days to a week. Zika virus can be detected in the blood of infected patients via antibody tests, but these may cross-react with those of other related viruses including dengue and yellow fever. Advanced molecular techniques can more effectively detect the virus in blood samples taken early in the infection cycle of patients. Zika virus infection in pregnant women can result in serious, even lethal consequences for the fetus. During the current Zika pandemic, a very high incidence of babies born with abnormally small heads and significant brain damage, a condition known as microcephaly, is being documented in mothers who were infected with the virus during pregnancy. What is the treatment?A. There is no specific treatment for Zika virus infection. Given that the primary symptoms, if any, are usually mild, only supportive treatment (rest, fluids and medications such as acetaminophen for fever and pain) are recommended. Patients should not take aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs until dengue has been ruled out because these drugs may aggravate bleeding associated with some forms of dengue. How can I avoid infection with Zika virus?A. As with other mosquito-transmitted pathogens, prevention involves limiting exposure to mosquito bites. The most important preventive action is personal protection, which means using protective clothing (e.g., long pants and sleeves) and an approved mosquito repellent, preferably one containing DEET. Eliminating potential mosquito developmental sites from the home is also important. This can be done by draining, removing or covering any water holding container. Examples include buckets, garbage cans, birdbaths, boats, tarps and similar objects.

Doctor: Prejudices must be overcome to explore marijuanas potentialIts clear that the movement to legalize medical marijuana has picked up steam in recent years, but its less clear how potent a medicine the leafy substance can be. While a growing number of studies have raised the tantalizing possibility that marijuana could provide a cure for cancer, the medical community at large has been hesitant to make definitive proclamations, saying more study is needed. But Dr. James W. Forsythe, an oncologist and author of the book Stoned: The Truth About Medical Marijuana and Hemp Oil, is less reluctant than others to tout the use of marijuana to treat cancer. He says the chemical in marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, appears to be effective in attacking and killing cancer cells, and the medical community and government should be more aggressive in studying and ultimately proclaiming marijuanas potency as a cancer treatment. Certainly, no medicine should ever be touted as a 100 percent guaranteed cure for cancer or any other disease, Dr. Forsythe says. But I do think there needs to be some official acknowledgment of the ability of THC and other basic ingredients from marijuana to obliterate cancer. Medical marijuana is now legal in 23 states and the District of Columbia, but the federal government still lists it as a Schedule I controlled substance. The federal governments refusal to legalize marijuana has led to numerous conditions being placed on researchers and is deterring scientific study of the medicinal strength of cannabinoids, the natural components in the cannabis plant, according to the American Cancer Society. The society has said federal officials should examine options consistent with federal law for enabling more scientific study of marijuana. Despite the restrictions, some research is taking place. For example, studies in mice and rats have shown that cannabinoids may inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumors to grow, according to the National Cancer Institute. Laboratory and animal studies have shown that cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells. That hasnt been enough to inspire scientists to declare marijuana as an answer to the fight against cancer just yet. More often, marijuana is used to treat the symptoms of cancer, such as pain, or the side effects from chemotherapy, such as nausea and vomiting. Different strains of marijuana are considered the best for attacking different symptoms, Dr. Forsythe says. Those strains come in dozens of varieties and they sport exotic names, such as Blueberry, Tangerine Dream and Morning Star. Dr. Forsythe says a few examples of symptoms and the marijuana strains that can address them include: Nausea. Chemotherapy treatments are notorious for leaving patients nauseous. Some of the marijuana strains effective in controlling nausea are: Afghanica, OG Kush, Sour Diesel and Tangerine Dream. Pain. Many strains are said to be able to control pain, including Afghanica, Alaskan Thunder, Bay 11, Blueberry, Morning Star and OG Kush. Stress and anxiety. Some of the stress and anxiety cancer patients feel can be alleviated with strains such as Afghanica, Blueberry, Jack Herer, Morning Star and Tangerine Dream. Marijuana can be used to treat a number of diseases and ailments, Dr. Forsythe says. Unfortunately, many people are still against the use of marijuana in any form or for any reason. Its important to try to open their minds so that they realize the potential marijuana has to impr ove, and maybe even save, the lives of so many people. Dr. James W. Forsythe, an integrative medical oncologist, is the author of more than 20 books, including his most recent, Stoned: The Truth About Medical Marijuana and Hemp Oil (drforsythe.com). He received his undergraduate degree from the University of California at Berkeley and earned his medical degree from University of California, San Francisco. Today he operates the Century Wellness Clinic in Reno, Nevada.

The researchers say the findings could lead to the development of a supplement that patients could take orally to prevent cavities. While developing an effective oral probiotic will require more research, a possible candidate organism has been identified: a previously unidentified strain of streptococcus, currently called A12. Robert Burne, associate dean for research and chair of the UF College of Dentistrys department of oral biology, and dentist Marcelle Nascimento, an associate professor in the UF College of Dentistrys department of restorative dental sciences, published the findings in the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology.To maintain a healthy mouth, the oral environment must have a relatively neutral pH. When it becomes more acidic, cavities or other disorders can develop. Bacteria on the teeth make acid, and acid dissolves the teeth. Its straightforward chemistry, Mr. Burne said. We got interested in what activities keep the pH elevated. Previous research by him, Dr. Nascimento and others found two main compounds urea, which everyone secretes in the mouth, and the amino acid arginine that break down into ammonia, which helps neutralize acid in the mouth. Mr. Burne and Dr. Nascimento had previously found that both adults and children with few or no cavities were better at breaking down arginine than people with cavities. Researchers knew bacteria were responsible for breaking down these compounds but needed to investigate which bacteria do this best, and how this inhibits cavities. Part of the answer is A12, the streptococcus strain. Like a probiotic approach to the gut to promote health, what if a probiotic formulation could be developed from natural beneficial bacteria from humans who had a very high capacity to break down arginine? Mr. Burne said. You would implant this probiotic in a healthy child or adult who might be at risk for developing cavities. However many times you have to do that once in a lifetime or once a week the idea is that you could prevent a decline in oral health by populating the patient with natural beneficial organisms. A12 has a potent ability to battle a particularly harmful kind of streptococcal bacteria called streptococcus mutans, which metabolizes sugar into lactic acid, contributing to acidic conditions in the mouth that form cavities. The UF researchers found that A12 not only helps neutralize acid by metabolizing arginine in the mouth, it also often kills streptococcus mutans. Also, if A12 doesnt kill streptococcus mutans, A12 interferes with streptococcus mutans ability to carry out the normal processes it needs to cause disease, Mr. Burne said. If you grow them together, streptococcus mutans does not grow very well or make biofilms, also known as dental plaque, properly. Dr. Nascimento, a clinician, collected plaque samples for the study. Dental plaque is a mass of bacteria that grows on the surface of teeth and can contribute to the formation of cavities. She isolated more than 2,000 bacteria that the researchers then screened to find bacteria that fit the bill. We characterized 54 bacteria that metabolized arginine, Dr. Nascimento said. Out of these, A12 stood out for having all of the properties we were looking for in a bacteria strain that could prevent cavities in a probiotic application. The researchers sequenced the entire genome of A12 and plan to turn this discovery into a tool to screen for people who are at a higher risk for developing cavities, in combination with other factors such as a patients diet and their oral hygiene habits. We may be able to use this as a risk assessment tool, Dr. Nascimento said. If we get to the point where we can confirm that people who have more of this healthy type of bacteria in the mouth are at lower risk of cavities this could be one of the factors you measure for cavities risk. Next, the researchers hope to find more instances of A12 in a larger sample of people and to test how prevalent bacteria with similar properties are in the human mouth. Mr. Burne and his research team of Dr. Nascimento and David Culp, in UFs department of oral biology, and Vincent Richards, an assistant professor at Clemson University, received a five-year, $3 million grant from the National Institutes of Healths National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research. The grant will allow researchers to study the genomics and ecology of A12 and related bacteria in the oral cavity and examine the mechanisms used by beneficial bacteria to promote oral health.

Health care professionals make a lifelong commitment to learningThe field of medicine demands constant, continuous education. Even the most talented, competent caregivers need to stay current on advances and technologies in health care. Thats why for nearly two decades NCH has embraced a culture in which colleagues are reimbursed for tuition for courses furthering their knowledge. Its also why, for the past six years, we have instituted career ladder programs and moved toward Magnet Status. As a further step in that learning process, in July 2017 we plan to have the first group of 12 internal medicine residents begin their three years of graduate medical education here at NCH. Health systems such as ours have an obligation to emphasize education in areas of clinical excellence, safety and quality for the 670 members of our medical staff. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education requires that a sponsoring organization (which is what we will be for our residents) maintain an educational environment that assures (1) the safety and quality of care of the patients under the care of residents, (2) the safety and quality of care of the patients under the care of the graduates in their future practice, and (3) the provision of a humanistic educational environment where residents are taught to manifest professionalism and selfeffacement to meet the needs of their patients. These three mandates remain critical throughout the working life of a physician. Indeed, physician burnout is a growing problem in healthcare; a recent study suggested that more than half of the nations physicians are affected by burnout, often revealed by depression and sometimes even suicide. More than 400 physicians commit suicide yearly, which is equivalent to a whole graduating medical class. Continuing education bolsters the well being of our medical staff. Supporting energetic, enthusiastic, committed learners helps everyone remember why we became physicians. Thats why we are going to begin sponsoring more conferences and conducting weekly Grand Rounds in addition to our current educational offerings that include lectures originating from Mayo Clinic. Adding to our educational efforts, we have recently been joined by Master of the American College of Physicians Dr. Jim Bernene and 10-time Excellence in Teaching award winner Dr. Charles Graeber, as associate program director and program director of graduate medical education, respectively. Both are eminent physicians who have earned distinction for their practice and leadership. Finally, the continuing educational support we receive from our Mayo Clinic partners is another source of strength for NCH. We have already had Mayo Clinic-Jacksonville fourthyear surgical residents do a rotation with Drs. JB Brockman, David Lamon and Luigi Querusio. Next year well have our first group of internal medicine residents. The excitement of having newly-graduated medical students and their families will add immeasurably to our community.

Wilson Lighting is so much more than a lighting store. Hothouse Flower. SINCE 1975 PET TALESSpring blooms can be beautiful, but deadly to pets BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickLilies have been associated with rebirth and renewal for millennia. Ancient Romans believed that lilies sprang up when the goddess Juno spilled milk while she was nursing the baby Hercules. Lilies also represent the renewal symbolized by Easter. For cat lovers, though, lilies mean just the opposite. Every part of them pollen, flowers, leaves, stems, even the water in which theyre placed is deadly to felines. What is it about lilies that make them so toxic to cats? That is the million-dollar question, says Dr. Tina Wismer, a veterinary toxicology specialist who is medical director of the ASPCAs Animal Poison Control Center. There was a researcher at Michigan State who was looking into the toxic component. He was able to find that it is throughout the plant, but couldnt quite characterize it. When it comes to toxicity, cats are special in a bad way. They are uniquely susceptible to certain plants, medications and other substances. Dogs, for instance, may simply get a little stomach upset if they eat lily flowers, but cats can develop kidney failure if not treated within the first 18 hours after ingestion. They need intravenous fluids for 48 hours to help flush the toxins from the body. Cats treated after the 18-hour time frame dont do as well and may even die. The toxin kills off some of the cells that line the urine tubules in the kidneys, so that debris from the dead cells plugs up the kidneys, Dr. Wismer says. As long as you keep the fluids going and keep that debris from building up, then we have a good prognosis. How does lily toxicity occur? A typical call that APCC receives at this time of year involves a man sending flowers to a woman. In the bouquet many times are gorgeous stargazer lilies, and these are highly toxic to cats, Dr. Wismer says. The owner gets home, finds that the cat has chewed on the bouquet and for a couple of days the cat gets to spend time in the hospital. If you have lilies in your home or yard which we dont recommend signs of trouble you may notice include pollen on your cats face, vomiting and pieces of the plant in the vomit. The kidneys start shutting down after the first 12 to 24 hours. At first, that causes increased thirst and urination, but within two to three days, cats stop making urine. Dogs have their own issues with different plants. While cats usually prefer to nibble on foliage and flowers, dogs may go all the way to the other end of the plant. Bulbs such as daffodils, hyacinths and tulips are toxic to them. If your dog likes to help you garden, he can be at risk if he digs up and eats the bulbs of those flowers. The petals cause only mild stomach upset in dogs and cats, but the bulb itself can cause bloody vomiting, bloody diarrhea and low blood pressure. Certain dog breeds can be more at risk. No one who is familiar with them will be surprised to learn that one breed in particular gets into trouble from eating bulbs. Labradors keep us in business here at poison control, Dr. Wismer says. Dogs who dig up bulbs may be attracted by the bone meal that some gardeners place beneath the bulb to help nourish it. Dogs eat the bulb on their way to the bone meal.

Rick Bhasin, MD, FAANSBoard Certi ed Neurosurgeon Clinical Af liation, Department of Neurosurgery University of Florida THE DIVA DIARIESIn search of a safe subject for dinner conversationI dont know about your mom, but my mom always told me there were two subjects that were taboo at dinner: Never, ever discuss politics or religion around the table, she advised. She also told me to make sure I was wearing clean underwear whenever I flew on a plane, just in case it crashed. Ive always heeded my mothers sage advice, because as most of us realize after weve passed the age of 40, mothers are actually always right. But the 2016 presidential race is so divisive that it seems all the rules are being broken. At a recent intimate dinner party, what started off as the hostess simply asking our Republican friends whom they were planning to vote for in the primary erupted into a rather loud, emotional debate between five adults that covered everything from building a wall to keep Mexican folks in Mexico to Hillary Clintons emails, Planned Parenthood, violence at Trump rallies and the Muslim religion. I tried to concentrate on my baked chicken breast and beet salad, because if theres one thing Ive learned about politics, its that you can yell about it all until youre blue in the face, but a dinner party debate is NOT going to change a Democrat into a Republican or a Republican into a Democrat. It will, however, raise your blood pressure and give rise to the lament that you have almost nothing in common with friends youve known for years and adore. We even went through two bottles of wine, but no one softened their stance. Ive always loved politics. Voting is one of my very favorite things to do, and Ive never missed an election. Even if its only a school board race or a City Council election, I report to my polling place with bells on to cast my vote and proudly display my I voted sticker for the rest of the day. At the risk of alienating half my readership, Im a registered Democrat, but Ive voted for plenty of Republicans in cases where I believed they were best suited for the job. I think the fact that Im a Democrat has a lot to do with Mom. Politics tend to run in families. My mother used to love telling the story about how John F. Kennedy reached out and shook her hand at a campaign stop when she was in her early 20s. She said she didnt wash her hand for days (the more she told the story over the years, the length of time when she didnt wash the hand that was clasped by JFK grew longer and longer and longer). I remember her volunteering for George McGoverns campaign because she was no fan of Nixon. So, basically, I followed her lead when it came my time to register to vote and I was happy to do it. For the most part, a liberal worldview suited my hippie chick nature. Whats odd, though, is that the older Mom got, she leaned less and less to the left. In her 60s she even became a Republican and started listening to country music instead of Joan Baez. Go figure. I truly feel that in all my years as an active and interested voter, this presidential election must be the most bizarre. I mean, first off, it feels like theres a Republican debate on television every single week. Its as if its a regular series, like American Idol. Maybe the candidates should start singing and we voters can just text a code to decide who gets kicked off for the next encounter. Other times, like the debate in which Mr. Trump famously referred to the size of his, ahem, hands, I concluded that these wranglings should have circus music playing. They could even bring some acrobats and elephants on stage and I doubt viewers would blink an eye. And, of course, after such Hunger Games-style of discourse, Facebook implodes as you discover your high school homecoming king has become a passionate socialist and Cousin Judy is the most extreme member of the tea party ever. So, sadly, I think more than a few of us are dropping some Facebook friends, even blood relations. (A little tip though: You can find a tutorial on Facebook that tells you how to divide your friends into groups and post so that only one group will see it. I think this really cuts down on people wanting to kill me. My groups are called Republicans, Democrats and Loose Cannons, the later usually being close friends on either side with super-extreme views who would get their feelings hurt if I deleted them.) So, here we are, and as ugly as its been, I fear its going to get much, much uglier. As for me, Im going to do my best to heed Moms advice and try to find safe subjects to discuss at the dinner table (and everywhere else). Im just not certain there are any safe subjects. Wait. Theres traffic. Im pretty sure we all can agree that traffic is unbearable. Which is, of course, the fault of our state government. If theyd just fund more roads uh-oh, its happening again.

Theres nothing else quite like it, and no other economic explosion quite as robust or exciting on a later-winter evening which is probably why Rodgers & Hammerstein wrote It might as well be Spring, in their 1933 film, State Fair. The movie, famously remade in 1945 and 1962, describes that classic American mix of food, agricultural exhibits, rides and carnival events that burst on the scene like fireworks every February and March. But now its county fairs more than state fairs that seem to capture that regional flavor starting this week, again, when the 40th annual Collier County Fair and Exposition kicks off for 10 days beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 17.Lee Countys booming fair, the only regional attraction of its kind that welcomes 4-H participants who show their farm animals from any of the five counties on the southwest coast, concluded less than two weeks ago, while Charlottes f air wrapped up in February.America might be changing, yes, but county fairs havent changed one iota: They bring in huge amounts of money, they attract a huge variety of people and they offer a singular promise down through the years: American life is still a lot of greasy, noisy, profitable fun.SEE FAIR, B4 Fair for everyoneRides, exhibits, food and fun attract crowds and boost economies COURTESY PHOTOCounty fairs attract tourists and residents alike who spend cash on rides, food and games. ... so many of our long-standing traditions, attractions and customs are disappearing.

MONEY & INVESTINGInvestors should know the reason when a company buys back stocksIn 2015, many publicly traded companies were facing a big problem they were amassing huge amounts of cash. Apple had $178 billion. Microsoft had more than $90 billion and Google $64 billion. Drug company Pfizer amassed $53 billion in cash and the list can go on and on. You may be asking yourself how can having a huge amount of cash be a problem? Isnt that like being too goodlooking? Well, as we all know, with interest rates at zero, these companies were earning almost no return on this cash and company executives couldnt find enough organic projects to fund or mergers and acquisitions targets to put these funds to use. So 2015 turned into the year of the stock buyback for a multitude of publicly traded companies. But what are stock buybacks and are they really good for shareholders? Historically, when a company had excess cash it would return it to its stockholders mainly in the form of dividends. In fact, most companies were judged by their dividends and how they grew payouts to shareholders over time. But over the last couple of decades, the perception of dividends has changed for a few reasons. First, investors today want high-growth, high-return stocks and many feel that a large dividend means that the company isnt using its capital to grow as fast as it might otherwise. To these investors, a high-dividendpaying stock is actually a negative because they would rather see a company use its cash to fund high-return projects to boost its net income. Second, no executive ever wants to cut a dividend once it is put in place. So announcing a quarterly payout basically guarantees cash outflows way out into the future and reduces financial flexibility for years to come. And finally, many senior executives today do not feel the benefit of dividends because many are not significant shareholders of their company. They are paid with cash and options so cash payouts to stockholders do not benefit them. Because of these reasons, executives at many firms have turned to stock buybacks to return money to shareholders. This entails using company funds to buy stock in the open market and basically retiring it. There are two main benefits for existing shareholders when stock buybacks occur. First, each existing shareholder will own a larger percentage of the company. For example, if you owned 100 shares of XYZ company out of 1,000 shares outstanding, you owned 1/10 of the company. If XYZ then bought back 200 shares, you would then own 1/8 of the company. Second, buybacks boost a companys earnings per share by reducing the denominator of this fraction. If a company earns $1,000,000 and has 1,000,000 shares outstanding, its EPS is $1 per share. If the company retires 100,000 shares and has the same earnings, all of a sudden its EPS is $1.11 per share.So for a company executive, stock buybacks are very appealing. Many executives are evaluated based on how well they can grow their companys EPS and a stock buyback can do this without any earning growth. Second, buybacks are generally short-term in nature so they are not saddled with long-term commitments that can hamper them in an economic downturn. And finally, buybacks generally are positive on stock prices, which increase option valuations for executives.But are stock buybacks good for investors? As always, the answer is it depends. If a management team is using a buyback program to mask poor earnings growth or a decline in market share, the buyback probably will not be positive for investors in the long run. Or if a company takes on a large debt burden to buy back stock, this may also backfire when interest rates rise or the company has difficulties paying its debt back when it becomes due. On the other hand, buybacks can be more positive than dividends because with a dividend, the investor needs to pay tax on that cash immediately. With a buyback, that benefit (and tax consequence) will be deferred until the investor sells the stock and realizes a capital gain. In addition, buybacks can be accretive when a company is undervalued because of something going on in its industry or with its peers. Many companies buy back stock after a drop in stock price to give confidence to its investors that management believes its company is undervalued and it is putting its money where its mouth is. In the end, both dividends and stock buybacks benefit shareholders. And if you look at returns on high dividend and high stock buyback companies in the long term, they have similar positive returns. I would say, though, that I prefer dividends over stock buybacks as they are more visible. If my company is going to return money to shareholders, I prefer to have those funds in my pocket at the end of the day. But, as always, the devil is in the details. Its critical to understand why the company you own is returning money to stockholders and what its prospects are.

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 17-23, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYJust how much is a fair worth to a community or how much does it cost individuals? Nobodys quite sure, and they dont seem to care that much, either. A lot either way is the typical conclusion. No economic impact assessment of the Lee County Fair has been done by the Lee County Economic Development Office, Lee County Sports Development or the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau, says Betsy Clayton, a county spokeswoman. No matter. Towering Ferris wheels dominating the evening skyline for miles mean money. The smell of funnel cakes and hot dogs and cotton candy and beef or swine barns; the obtrusively loud carnival music or recorded pitch loops : See her right here, the woman with no head, a living, breathing human female ); the overly ambitious, bleary-eyed carnival barkers, the handholding young lovers; the fairs frequent punctuation of screams from distant rides that thrust everydayJanes-and-Joes through the paroxysms of fighter pilots all of it means money and heritage. Pam Cronin, a business owner and member of the Lee Counmty Tourist Development Council, puts it in perspective this way: The Lee County Fair is an important institution (since) so many of our long-standing traditions, attractions and customs are disappearing. The fair attracts a broad demographic, from the very young to the mature, yet young-atheart, including locals and tourists. As an economic generator the Fair Board (which also manages the Lee Civic Center) brings tax dollars into the community as well as the spending power of the seasonal employees it hires. And thats not all, ladies and gentleman: An important ancillary impact of events in Lee County is the added value derived by tourists when they discover one more wonderful thing to do in our fabulous area, adds Ms. Cronin. In effect, all of us are tourists when we go to the fair. Beverly Mott, born and raised in Hendry, Charlotte and DeSoto counties and now an unofficial spokeswoman for humanity or at least for the many thousands who visit the fair and its attractions suggests she is not the only one addicted to Italian sausages, corn dogs, cotton candy, candied apples and elephant ears. It went down like this at the fair, she recalls, as it does for most people. Im not famous for my budgeting skills, so I budgeted exactly nothing. Then I headed off to the fair with a smile and a skip (OK, more like a waddle) in my step. Spent $5 to park, I think. Was it $5? Maybe $8. See above budgeting problem. Then I spent $8 to ride one single ride: the tilta-whirl!!! I love, love, love that ride. And I really got lucky because I was standing in line all by my big grown-up self feeling like a giant among the five-year-olds in line with me when I heard a tiny voice say to her heavily pregnant mother, Mama, Im scared to go by myself. I grabbed onto that scared child like a drowning man. Hey, me too! You want to ride with me? She laid a smile on me that made my heart skip a beat. We held hands and my embarrassingly grown-up self had a REASON to ride a kiddy ride. And her tiny little self had a big-ol grown-up to hang on to. We spun, laughed, threw our hands in the air and rocked the tilt-a-whirl! Her sweaty little hand had a death grip on mine as we exited and she pointed to the big-people rides: Will you go on that one with me? Oh, and that one?! I didnt have the heart to tell her my big-ol grown-up self is terrified of bigpeople rides. So I hugged her and snuck away. Im still mad at myself for not bucking up and riding all those awful rides with her. Maybe next year Ill find a brave bone. But this is an economic story, and its not over yet, as Ms. Mott reveals. So after that I met Ben and Claire and purchased them each a $20 ride-all-youcan ride bracelet. Then I went to each food vendor and purchased the aforementioned foods before sneaking home to eat them in leisure in front of a book. Oh, and a lemonade and Kettle Korn, too. Eek. Maybe $200?The 4-H experienceThe real work in the fair, with significant expenditures, comes for the 4-H kids (about 5 to about 18) and their families, who are there exhibiting animals and caring for them almost every single day. In both Charlotte and Collier, participants have to live in their respective counties, which is not true of the Lee fair. Our fair is smaller. We have approximately 50 swine and some steers on exhibit, all market animals, says Tish Roland, the 4-H extension agent who organizes the Collier Fair 4-H effort. The steers will be fewer in number because its costly to buy one then raise it. -H is all about life skills. So lets say they take the little pig, they buy it between 70 and 80 pounds for about $250, and they have it for 15 or 16 weeks. Thats the start of a situation, and when theyre little theyre excited. The pigs go through turmoil, so the children need to spend time with them its kind of a win-win for pig and child, a great experience. And everything goes into a book the price of the pig, food, wormer, the brush you could spend $600 to $800 on the pig. Eventually, the pigs have to reach a certain weight to compete before judges for the top prizes at the fair and thats true in any county. The same thing happens in Charlotte County and in Lee, where about 350 people participate, serving in about 25 clubs, says Cathy Suggs, the 4-H extension agent and Lee youth coordinator. They learn leadership, environmental issues, sewing, cooking and we have a huge animal science program in Lee County with over 200 adult volunteers, Ms. Suggs explains. Adults are mentoring and partnering with kids to help them develop life skills and be good citizens. And older teens are helping younger kids. At the Lee fair, just as in Charlotte and Collier, kids displaying market animals can win money or scholarships, which is part of the attraction to them. Those showing swine, for example, have to purchase the animal at a weight between 25 and 50 pounds, and then meet a second weight 225 pounds to get into the show. A steer, though, might come in at 90 pounds and top out between 750 and 1,000. Market animals must be sold at the fair auction for food, which the children get used to and can benefit from: Animals may go at $4 a pound, notes Ms. Suggs. The average child spends about $550 or $600 on a swine, and makes about $400 profit, says Ms. Suggs. But the beef is something entirely different they can easily spend $2,000 between buying and feeding them. But they will also make more money from the sale of their animals probably as highquality as any can be which is the nature of the beast and the business, they say. Profit, after all, is always part of a fair. FAIRFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOSRight: Among the hardest working contributors to any county fair are the 4-H members who raise animals for exhibition. >> The 40th annual Collier County Fair & Exposition puts its colorful stamp on the region beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 17, and concluding Sunday, March 27.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Ready for Retirement?We usually think of being ready for retirement as meaning that we have accumulated a big-enough nest egg but being emotionally ready for it is important, too. Even if you dont particularly like what you do to earn a living, your job provides structure to your week and daily social interactions. When that goes away, many people experience a sense of loss, particularly in the early days of retirement. That loss can be felt acutely, particularly by people who were in high-influence professions. Theres a loss of responsibility, routine, and a place to go to when you get up in the morning. And then theres the loss of relationships or at least the built-in, day-to-day interactions with colleagues that most of us take for granted. Anticipating the potential side effects of retirement can help you adjust. Here are some suggestions: (1) Plan how youre going to spend your time. Make a list of things you want to do and activities to enjoy. If you think youd like working a little in retirement, look into how you might do that. (2) Make new friends and keep the old ones. Dont let yourself become isolated. Make an effort to plan meals or activities with friends. And seek new buddies, too, through hobbies, social groups and so on. (3) Find a purpose to fulfill your sense of contributing to society. For many people, a key determinant of a happier retirement is having a purpose. Volunteering can keep you busy, socially active and feeling useful. (4) Discuss with your spouse how you can avoid driving each other crazy. Suddenly being together 24/7 can be stressful, so prepare to work at finding a balance between being together and being apart that suits you both. Discuss activities youd enjoy doing together and on your own. Avoid feelings of isolation and emptiness and a lack of direction in retirement by having people to talk to, places to go and important work to do. Con-dumb-iniumsSix years ago I came into some money, smack dab in the middle of the Great Recession. Since the stock market had tanked and my experience had never been good there, I bought two condominiums. It seemed a very secure investment, as Id always done well in real estate. Maintenance expenses were paid through an assessment, so I wouldnt have to worry about them, both units were new, and I thought demand would be great.How wrong I was. The condo owners are at the mercy of the condo association, and there is little one can do about that. The people managing the property often dont seek competitive bids or audit the bills they receive. They dont always aim to keep expenses down, passing bills along to the condo owners, with the result that the assessment fees keep going up.Within two years, the fees I paid nearly doubled and the value of my properties fell significantly. I got out as quickly as I could to save what I had left. J.H., via emailThe Fool Responds: Many condominium owners are happy, but youre not alone in your criticisms. Before buying a condo, its smart to ask a lot of questions of residents in the complex. Stocks may not have seemed appealing back in 2010, but theyve rebounded considerably since then. When others have panicked and sold is often a great time to buy. Furniture ProfitsSometimes the greatest finds are gems youve never heard of before. Kimball International (Nasdaq: KBAL), a manufacturer of office and hospitality furniture thats sold under the National, Kimball Office and Kimball Hospitality brands, could be just the cheap growth stock youre looking for. In Kimballs last quarterly earnings report, revenue grew by 8 percent, administrative expenses dropped 5 percent and adjusted operating income exploded higher by 145 percent. CEO Bob Schneider attributed much of the success to the companys employees, as well as new office-furniture innovations, adding that hospitality revenue would have seen a 27 percent increase if not for a large special order thats being recognized over multiple quarters.Kimball is benefiting from businesses having relatively easy access to cheap capital, which is allowing them to take on debt and expand. This expansion means new equipment and furnishings. Kimballs hospitality segment also benefits from Americans having more income at their disposal. Hotels have witnessed a successful rebound from their Great Recession lows, and many are looking to increase their capacity. This bodes well for Kimball.Although Kimball can be lumped in with a wide swath of cyclical companies dependent on economic growth to drive sales and profits higher, its dividend, which recently yielded 2 percent, $26 million in net cash and growing profit margins make it a promising candidate for investors seeking growth and value. I trace my history back to 1885, when Albert Bu tz p atented a furnace regulator and alarm. His business was bought out and eventually merged with a heat generator company. I introduced my iconic round thermostat in 1953. I was bought by AlliedSignal in 1999, but kept my name. Today Im an industrial giant with a market value recently topping $80 billion and an endearing ticker symbol. I employ 127,000-plus people and specialize in aerospace products and services; control technologies for buildings, homes and industry; turbochargers; and performance materials. About 50 percent of my offerings deliver energy efficiency. Who am I? (Answer: Honeywell) Dividend CutsQDo companies reduce their dividends? G.P., Erie, Pennsylv aniaAThey aim to never do so, as that would disappoint shareholders and suggest business weakness. Still, sometimes companies do reduce or eliminate dividends. In 2009, when our economy was struggling due to the credit crisis, General Electric slashed its payout by 68 percent. (It has since been hiking it, but its not yet back to previous levels.) Today many energy companies are struggling because of the low price of oil. ConocoPhillips recently cut its payout by 66 percent.Of course, many companies (especially young or fast-growing ones) pay little or no dividend, preferring to reinvest most of their earnings to help themselves grow. For example, Amazon, Facebook, Priceline and Tesla Motors pay no dividend, while FedEx, Humana, Southwest Airlines, Activision Blizzard and Visa pay modest ones.Including healthy dividend payers in your portfolio is a smart move, though. Between 1930 and 2014, dividends accounted for roughly 40 percent of the total return of the S&P 500 index. Dividend payers tend to hold up better in weak markets, too.To see a list of dividend-paying stocks we recommend, try our Motley Fool Income Investor newsletter for free at fool.com/shop/newsletters.***QWhats the efficient market theory? F.F., Opelika, AlabamaAIt suggests that all available information about a stock is known and factored into its price, so we shouldnt be able to find undervalued or overvalued stocks. There are strong and weak forms of this theory, and many just dismiss it. Its not unreasonable to view the market as generally efficient, but with occasional inefficiencies that investors can take advantage of.

A great price for The Great Ones final Florida residence TOPTENREALESTATE.COM.In the early days of television, Jackie Gleason was one of the most popular entertainers on air. Until 1964, The Jackie Gleason Show was recorded with live audiences at Studio 50 in New York City. But when a friend told Mr. Gleason he could play golf all year in South Florida, he loaded his cast and crew onto train cars and set off for Miami. He fell in love with the city and Miami Beach and in 1965 bought a home abutting the Country Club of Miamis golf course in Hialeah. His widow Marilyn sold the house several years after her husbands death in 1987 with the condition that everything in the house would remain intact. The buyer agreed, and now upon his death, the house is once again for sale almost completely unchanged. Only a few steps from Inverrary Golf Course, the 4,123-square-foot home has six bedrooms, three bathrooms and Jackies famous entertainment room with sunken bar. Most of the original furnishings and decor are still intact, and the new owner will have the option of preserving them or creating their own fresh style. Mr. Gleason would have turned 100 last month. The Great Ones last great party house in Lauderhill is offered at $299,000. How sweet it is! COURTESY PHOTOS

C2 Hi thereCritic Dan Hudak thinks older filmgoers will enjoy Sally Field in Hello, My Name is Doris. C15 Native artistReisha Perlmutter embues her work with memories of a Naples childhood. C22 Julia Fracassi suffers from mind-numbing insomnia and is desperately seeking a reason. Her self-absorbed, sassy therapist Midge, who just happens to be her best friend, is at a loss. Her loving, but equally tired fianc Greg simply doesnt recognize the severity of her situation. When it is suggested that Julia might have a terminal form of insomnia known as Fatal Familial Insomnia, she jumps at the chance to find an explanation even if that means flying all the way to Venice, Italy. Once there, she meets the Isabella Orsini, whose bloodline is the only family known to experience this fatal disease. Although Julia wants answers, they might not be the ones she is expecting. Such is the story of A Sleeping Country, on stage in the Tobye Studio at the Sugden Community Theatre in Naples March 23-April 16. The show by American playwright Melanie Marnich begs the question: Are we sleeping through life, or are we truly awake? This clever comedy is a mirror of what many people experience on a daily basis. We all have worries that frustrate us, and some of us sometimes have fears that overwhelm and even incapacitate us. Out of desperation, sometimes we look to a medical condition for an explanation. It can be comforting to think our issues are beyond our control; it takes the responsibility off of us. When Isabella proclaims that Julia would rather have a disease than face the cure, Julia is awakened to a harsh reality. Could she be trying to take the easy way out? The Naples Players production is directed by Jessica Walck, who directed last seasons TNP production of Love, Loss and What I Wore and recently starred in Other Desert Cities. Cheyenne De Barros, a newcomers to the local stage, stars as Julia, and TNP veteran Bonnie Knapp plays fellow insomniac Isabella Orsini. Ms. Knapp last starred in Noises Off as Dottie Otley and in Good People as the sharp-tongued Margie. Taking on the roles of Julias fianc Greg, Insomnia keeps the story going in A Sleeping CountrySPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________EVERY YEAR, PAUL Doiron raises the murder rate in Maine. The novelist kills off another few people in his books so his protagonist, Game Warden Mike Bowditch, has another crime to solve. My books are pretty dark, he says, noting the irony of that fact for a writer who lives in a state that has one of the lowest crime rates in the country. The mystery writers in Maine, when we get together, laugh at this, he says. Its strange weve ended up in the state that has an enviably low murder rate. Mike Bowditchs job is relative to that of a police officer, except his beat is the woods. In Maine, game wardens are full officers of the law, Mr. Doiron (pronounced DWAH-ren) explains. People might think theyre essentially forest rangers, but theyre not. Theyre more like police officers. They describe themselves as off-road police officers. And most of Maine is off-road. BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com Paul Doiron will discuss his work at 1:15 p.m. and will sign books at 10:30 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. as part of the Southwest Florida Reading Festival in downtown Fort Myers on Saturday, March 19.

Putnam. 336 pages. Hardcover, $27. Though we rarely see Doc Ford on one of his secret government assignments these days, one has come his way. He must, says his government handler, assassinate a madman who has reached the top of the most wanted terrorist list. A recent convert to Islam, Chicagoan David Abdel Cashmere, aka Maximo Al-Amerikee, has been making a lot of trouble by beheading people with his ruby-handled Persian knife and circulating videos of his slayings. A failed actor, he has now become a star. ISIS calls him its American senior operative and video adviser. Sound a bit over-the-top? Yes, and youll love it. Its surreal and whacky, but darn scary and suspenseful, too. Our hero, now in Randy Wayne Whites 23rd Doc Ford adventure, packs up his tool kit and heads for a swanky resort near the ruins of ancient Tulum, on the Yucatan Peninsula. After some preliminary surveillance and study, he meets his supposed contact, an attractive woman named KAT. Somewhat suspicious of her behavior, he sends her a message that the mission has been scrubbed and assesses her reaction. From here on, Doc knows theres a game on that involves manipulating him, perhaps even substituting his assigned target for another. More than that, he discovers his community on Sanibel Island is in jeopardy. Two unusual occurrences threaten the Dinkins Bay Marina. One is the appearance of Hello Dolly, a great white shark that is at once a source of fear and a possible source of increased or collapsed tourism. The other is the appearance of two drones that, extremely well-designed, do not seem to be under the control of government agencies. Other odd things happen. Some force (or someone) invades and captures Sanibel area cyberspace, taking over computers and other electronic devices in a show of power. Soon enough, readers get to know the main villains. More about David Cashmere is revealed, and a grotesque pair an estranged father and son of great intellect, wealth and criminal intent comes into play. The father is Winslow Shepherd, whom Doc had seen in the company of KAT (conceivably a traitor or double agent). The son, Julian, is a madman whose derangement and genius far exceed that of the Muslim terrorist. Julian, we discover, wants his drones back. But what are they for? What else does he want? Why does he need to bring Doc grief? Deep Blue is flooded with other fascinating characters, including a Brazilian multimillionaire, a female veterinarian with a sordid past who saves Docs dog and a pint-sized Cuban whose exploits lend some levity to the otherwise somber atmosphere. One of Mr. Whites greatest characters, the strangely wise and often wacky aging hippie named Tomlinson, has a major subordinate role here, while Docs sometimesgirlfriend Hannah Smith (alive and well in the new series of novels that bear her name) has a mere walk-on part. As always in a Doc Ford adventure, seamanship and navigation play major roles. So do all kinds of contemporary technologies (exploited here on both sides of the probability line). Mr. White keeps the techno-speak in bounds so that it does not get in the way of the pace and accessibility of the story line. In fact, for many readers the forays into science (about dogs, boats, biological research, blue holes) will be a significant center of interest. One thing is totally probable, and that is the web of friendship and community feeling at Dinkins Bay. The characters that fill the home territory of this and earlier Doc Ford novels are for the most part people who were once strangers in need of new directions and connections. Some needed to begin new lives. Life and camaraderie at and near the marina allowed them to cover their secrets. Deeper relationships allowed them to share, selectively, past misdeeds or failures without fear of betrayal. So when Julian, who has tracked down every misstep in their lives, threatens to release all via the Internet, he would seem to have found Docs point of vulnerability. Mr. White delivers once again the thinking persons thriller his readers have come to expect, along with excellent management of pacing, settings and characterization. Its a winner. Phil Jason, Ph.D., U.S. 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. t n Y i h a K philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com WHITE

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 17-23, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Mr. Doiron is one of two dozen writers lined up for this years Southwest Florida Reading Festival, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 19, in downtown Fort Myers. (Visit readfest.org for the full schedule of readings, workshops and book signings.) He wrote his first novel, The Poachers Son, while working as editor-in-chief of Down East: The Magazine of Maine. He thought it might be the only book he would ever write, but as he was working on it, he began to see various opportunities to take his game warden character into different kinds of scenarios. So when his agent told him she was interested in representing authors who have a series, and asked if The Poachers Son would be the first Mike Bowditch story, he told her yes without hesitation. He wouldnt have to scramble for ideas for future novels. I had more than enough, he says. The first installment has the game wardens father being sought for murder. Hes a womanizer, drinker and brawler, but his son doesnt think hed kill anyone. The first thing I need to tell you is that the character of Jack Bowditch is not based on my father, the author says, adding his dad is sweet and gentle, a psychologist, of all things. Several things prompted him to write the novel. I grew up in a pretty hyper-masculine environment, he says. In my school life at an all-boys Catholic school, there was a lot of bullying. I met fathers of my friends who were pretty tough men; the sons felt they could never measure up to their fathers expectations. He was also interested in examining the concept of how well anyone can ever really know another person. He recalls watching a press conference about a woman who had disappeared on the West Coast. Her family was standing with the womans husband. Everybody was sure the husband had something to do with it, but the family wouldnt believe it, he says. They were in incredible denial. They loved their sonin-law and couldnt believe hed killed their daughter. Im interested in the lengths well go, psychologically, to deny that people we love are capable of some pretty horrible things. The Poachers Son also incorporates Mr. Doirons interest in the essence of the father-son relationship. In this case, its about a father whos a criminal, and in order for his son to make a break from him, he does the opposite, becomes a law enforcement officer, he says. The novel won the Barry Award and the Strand Critics Award for Best First Novel. It was nominated for an Edgar Award, an Anthony Award, a Macavity Award, a Thriller Award for Best First Novel and the Maine Literary Award for Best Fiction of 2010. The Precipice, the sixth title in the Mike Bowditch series, was released last summer; The Widowmaker, number seven, is set for released in June. The Precipice deals with two women who go missing on the 100-mile wilderness portion of the Appalachian Trail, which is considered the most remote stretch of the entire trail. Mr. Doiron asked himself: What would happen if people just disappeared there? How would the warden in charge of all search and rescues try to find them? I wanted to write about the whole culture of the Appalachian Trail, he says, the hikers who go from one end to another. He also wanted to write about the influx of coyotes that has happened in Maine over the past 80 years. As theyve migrated from the west, theyve bred with dogs and wolves, and are considerably larger and more aggressive, he says. He notes that when a woman in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, was attacked and killed by a pack of coyotes, It shocked everybody, because no one had seen them act that way before.The education influenceMr. Doirons books are perhaps more literary than the typical thriller. He attended Yale and earned an MFA in creative writing from Emerson College in Boston. Because he initially wasnt able to take the graduate school classes he wanted to, he says, he took some screen-writing classes. Certain principles of screenwriting are really useful for someone interested in writing crime novels, he says. Though his books by no means read like movie scripts, he says, Theyre both meant to be suspenseful, and the techniques that you use are common between movies and books. Most of his classmates have not gone on to have careers as writers, he adds. I dont feel I was the best writer. I think it was that I really wanted it more and perseverance, ultimately, is what leads to success as an author. His books present a highly developed sense of place. He describes the Pine Tree State not only by how it looks, but how it smells, sounds and feels to the touch. The detail, he says, comes out of watching the game wardens; they essentially live and work outside. When youre with them, you can see them using all of their senses to try to solve problems or puzzles. It made sense to Mr. Doiron that his main character would be someone who would notice everything. I describe him in one book as a compulsive notice-er, paying attention when most people dont. Its important for him that readers feel the state of Maine itself is also a character in his books. Even if youve never visited the state, by the time youve put one of the books down, I want you to feel as if you have, he says. Ive gotten letters from people in Japan and Australia whove never been to the United States, but after reading my books they say they have such a strong sense of what it must be like to be here. With each book, he says, he likes to weave the natural world into the mystery, so while youre getting a great thriller that keeps you at the edge of your seat, youre also immersed in the great Maine outside, learning about everything from animals to weather.The journalism influenceMr. Doirons 15-year tenure at Down East magazine helped him as a novelist. Being a journalist taught him how to meet deadlines, he explains. Its good training that way. You get right down to business when you have a certain amount to write. It also made him a better researcher. I know how to ask questions, who to ask questions of, he says. I know where to look for information. I know what to pay attention to. These are skills you pick up when you do reporting. Its the essence of the job. It comes in handy when youre writing fiction as well. His position as editor of the magazine also opened many doors, he adds. I met so many people who have become important sources to me, or supporters of me as a writer. Its a small pond here, and sooner or later you get to meet everybody you want to meet. He left his job at the magazine after this fifth novel and is now editor emeritus. One of his favorite contemporary crime writers is James Lee Burke, who writes about Louisiana. He writes with a tremendous sense of place, with a troubled, complicated hero, he says. If I can do for Maine what he has done for Louisiana, I would be very happy. Mr. Doiron is often compared to writers such as CJ Box and Craig Johnson, who also write crime novels set outdoors. Theres a subgenre of writers who write these hardboiled urban noir city novels, he says, and others who write about remote outdoor locations. We tend to get lumped together. As far as Maine writers, he admires Tess Gerritsen, Gerry Boyle and Stephen King, to name a few. Everything starts with Stephen King, he says. Were all writing in his shadow up here.Florida-Maine connectionThough hes a native of Maine, Mr. Doiron visits Southwest Florida regularly. He has family friends in Naples, and his in-laws recently bought a house in Englewood. It seems as though I end up on the READINGFrom page 1Being a game warden is an old-fashioned job. As professions go, it seems to belong to some lost and legendary age, right along with blacksmithing, lamplighting and the harpooning of sperm whales. The Sheriff of Nottingham is historys most famous game warden. What does that tell you? Even among my friends and family, the widely held belief was that my job was all about animals. And in certain moments I did see myself as the heroic protector of voiceless creatures. Without wardens in the woods, how many more deer would be slaughtered? How many more ducks would be killed? There was nobility in what we did, even if our salaries were paid for by the sale of hunting and fishing licenses. So in our case, you could say that death subsidized life. Game wardens represented societys recognition that humans need to be protected from their own predaciousness. That bloody desire to kill and keep killing. The inability to ever stop. Ultimately, my job wasnt about animals at all. It was about people and the cruelties they will commit when no one is watching. Paul Doiron Tresspasser (p. 89)The life of a game warden

The music of Richard Perron and his band Acoustically Speaking, with Dan Lachance on Sax, Bill Bussing on bass, Diago on percussion, and Richard on acoustic guitar, and vocals, is thought provoking, and inspiring. When asked what kind of music they play, it can be said to be original lyrically with a unique insight into life, and a musically energetically charged, eclectic mix of styles. When someone is truly original, its hard to nd a slot to t them in. You will come out of this concert with a positive outlook on life. The words of Richards songs are a reminder of what most of us know, but some of us have forgotten. There are also a couple of insightful songs about what makes life in Naples tick. This show is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression. Back by popular demand Thursday March 17 7:00pm Tickets: $22 In Advance $25 at the Doorsouthwest coast of Florida every winter, he says. Earlier this year, he and his wife went to Miami and drove down to the Keys. They stopped at the National Key Deer Refuge, he says, noting that it has a monument to the game warden who single-handedly saved the Key deer from extinction because they were being so heavily hunted. Sooner or later, Ill have to bring my game warden to Florida, he says, referring to Mike Bowditch. While here for the reading festival, he plans to go to return to the J.N. Ding Darling National Refuge on Sanibel Island. (He and his wife are avid birders, and Mr. Doiron is also a licensed guide and fisherman.) Theres a Florida-Maine connection, he says. This is where a lot of people end up, either for the winter or for retirement. He recalls attending a Boston Red Sox spring training game years ago and being stopped by two people in the parking lot. They were Down East subscribers who recognized him. They explained they had a house on the coast of Maine and another in Florida, and divided their time between the two. In the meantime, Mr. Doiron has signed a contract to write three more books, two of which will be Mike Bowditch novels. But given the latitude, he says, maybe Ill do something set in Florida. While some crime novelists follow a rigid outline, he doesnt feel the need. I have a sense of what the story is, who the characters are, the crime, and a sense of the ending of the book, he says. But I dont know the road Im going to travel to get there. It doesnt perturb him. I tell people that if Im surprised when Im writing it, it means the reader is going to be surprised while reading it.

Best Family F Best of the Gulf s ARTS COMMENTARYBad Jews stuck in a room together at Lab TheaterWhat determines whether someone is a good person or a bad person? More specifically, what makes someone a good Jew? Or, conversely, a bad Jew? What relevance does religion have for us in this modern world? These are the questions playwright Joshua Harmon raises in Bad Jews, playing through March 26 at Laboratory Theater of Florida. Jonah and Daphnas Holocaust-survivor grandfather has just died; the funeral was earlier in the day. Now they sit in Jonahs New York City studio apartment, its space taken up by two air mattresses and a futon. The cousins sit and talk, though it would be more accurate to say that Daphna (Stella Ruiz) chatters, pontificates and hectors Jonah (Daniel Cancio), who just wants to play video games. Daphna Feygenbaum is a nonstop compulsive talker. She has opinions about everything and judges everyone harshly. A verbal steamroller, she paces about the apartment gesturing wildly as she spews opinions and rambles and rants. Shes so annoying and abrasive that although you feel bad for Jonah that his grandfathers just died, you feel even worse for him that hes stuck in this room with his cousin. When Sartre said hell is other people, he must have had people like Daphna in mind. But wait it gets worse. Jonahs older brother Liam (Matt DeNoncour) didnt make it home for the funeral. He was skiing in Aspen with his girlfriend, Melody (Kate Dirrigl). His excuse? Days ago he accidentally dropped his cellphone from the ski lift. To Daphna this is proof of Liams arrogance and self-absorption. Why go skiing when their grandfather was at deaths door? How could he not even call home on his girlfriends cell phone to check on his condition? Then Liam shows up at the apartment with Melody, and thats when the psychological torture begins. Watching Daphna and her cousin argue and yell at each other is like watching two cars speed at each other and crash head-on again and again. This room is like my worse nightmare, Liam complains to his brother. And were stuck in it with them. Daphna prides herself in her Jewishness; Liam claims shes an uber-Jew who lords it over everyone. Shes so self-righteous, no one can meet her standards. Liam is the polar opposite; he celebrates Christmas, complete with a tree and a Santa hat. He rolls his eyes at his familys Passover Seder and acts as if hes above it all. As annoying as Daphna is, however, her characterization of Liam is right on the money: Hes self-absorbed, bristly and brimming with self-entitlement. Its obvious hes led a pampered life and sees it all as his due. I felt no love for either of them. It is the playwrights skill and the actors that these two are not merely cardboard figures that sprout opposing viewpoints, but that they come across as real people. And a lot of credit is to be laid at the feet of director Stephanie Davis, too, for getting such explosive, consistent performances from these community actors. I think the play would have been stronger, though, if both Liam and Daphna had revealed something about themselves that made them somewhat sympathetic, that made us like them. In that way, wed be even more horrified by what they say and do. Daphna, in particular, reminded me of two other characters weve seen on local stages: the mother in August: Osage County, who verbally eviscerates her family, only to proclaim, Im just truth-tellin, and the devil in The Seafarer, who knows others weaknesses and vulnerabilities and then repeatedly pokes them in those spots, over and over. Shell take a tiny detail and spit it back at you, complains Liam, upset by various small facts Daphna reveals about him to Melody. Poor Melody, a wisp of a WASP from Delaware, is no match for this crazy family. Good-hearted, innocent and totally enthralled with Liam, she has no idea what shes up against. Ms. Dirrigl plays her well: quiet, insipid, not quite sure what shes wandered into. In one of the plays best scenes she looks on, bewildered, as the three cousins, in a rare moment of compatibility, reminisce and joke about a childhood incident, the very memory of which renders them helpless with gales of laughter. She is obviously an outsider, not privy to their family history and stories. The playwright also nails how, after a death, grieving can turn on a dime and become quite comical. Ms. Dirrigl provides another key moment of the play when she belts out Summertime from Porgy and Bess and unknowingly slaughters it. Bad Jews, which is touted as comedy, could use more scenes like these. Mining the comedic moments would only make it stronger. Otherwise, it comes across as more of a nonstop shouting fest. Poor Jonah is caught in the middle. Mr. Cancio does a good job as the younger brother whos always coming in second place to the elder, the one whos always trying to maintain the peace. Throughout the show, Liam and Daphna fight over an item of their grandfathers the gold chai, two Hebrew letters that mean life, that he wore around his neck. Although this medallion was ubiquitous where I grew up, I initially didnt grasp what they were talking about because of the actors poor pronunciation. I suspect many viewers might not catch on until the cousins later explain the item to Melody. Liam wants the chai because he wants to use it to propose to Melody; his grandfather used it in proposing to his wife. But as the firstborn son, Liam automatically thinks the item should go to him; he claims his grandfather promised it to him, though his means of obtaining it are questionable. Daphna thinks she should get it, because a) she wants it and b) she thinks shes the more Jewish Jew of the two of them, more observant, more respectful of the traditions. Shes horrified that the pendant might go to Liam, whom, she feels, is a poor excuse for a Jew, and Melody, who is not Jewish at all. Liam comes across as a self-hating Jew who just wants to be seen as American; hes more interested in Japanese culture than his own. Daphna comes across as a Christian-hating Jew, ignoring apparently, the Old Testaments admonishments to welcome foreigners and strangers. Bad Jews raises interesting questions about what it means to be Jewish in the 21st century and whether a religion should be exclusive or inclusive of others. Is being religious a matter of following rituals and traditions, or is it a matter of the heart, of showing compassion? How should we treat others who dont share our beliefs, or even those within our religion who dont agree with us? Bad Jews might leave you with more questions than answers and, after an intense 90 minutes, exhausted. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Bad Jews>> When: Through March 26 >> Where: Laboratory Theater of Florida 1634 Woodford Ave., Fort Myers >> Cost: $25 for adults, $12 for students with ID >> Info: 218-0481 or laboratorytheater orida. com COURTESY PHOTODaniel Cancio as Jonah, Kate Dirrigl as Melody, Matt DeNoncour as Liam and Stella Ruiz as Daphna in a scene from Bad Jews, playing at Lab Theater through March 26.

BY STEVE BECKERWhen a player makes a takeout double of a suit as West did in this case he announces the values for an opening bid and asks his partner to respond in one of the other three suits. However, the responder has the option of passing the double when he has a very strong holding three tricks or more in the openers suit. In such a case, he can elect to convert the takeout double into a penalty double by passing. That is exactly what happened here when East decided that one diamond doubled, played by South, was the best contract for his side. It is nearly always right to lead a trump when a one-level takeout double is passed by the responder, and West saw no reason to deviate from that principle. Declarer won Easts nine of diamonds with the king and returned a low heart to dummys king. East took the ace and led the queen of trumps to South's ace. Declarer could now have saved a trick by cashing the club ace, but he not unreasonably continued with the jack of hearts, hoping to secure a heart ruff in dummy. West took the jack with the queen and cashed the king of spades, on which East played the queen. West then continued with a low spade to East's jack. East continued the devastating defense when he drew both of South's remaining trumps and returned the nine of spades. West cashed the A-10 of spades, East discarding his one remaining club, and East won the remaining tricks with his fifth trump and the 10-9 of hearts. So South went down five 1,400 points as a result of East's propitious pass and the subsequent flawless defense. Had West started out by leading the K-A and another spade instead of a trump, South might have held the loss to 500 points. West's trump lead turned out to be worth an additional 800 points.

Great visuals, ample funny moments for kids and adults and a slew of memorable furry characters make this an absolute delight. Rated PG.Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (Tina Fey, Martin Freeman, Margot Robbie) A TV news journalist (Ms. Fey) battles sexism and bureaucracy while covering Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan starting in 2003. Ms. Fey shows a mix of dramatic acting chops alongside her perfect comic timing, but the film as a whole doesnt handle the shifting tones between comedy and drama nearly as well. Still, its intriguing and enjoyable. Rated R.Triple 9 1/2(Kate Winslet, Anthony Mackie, Casey Affleck) A rookie detective (Mr. Affleck) unwittingly gets caught in the middle of a Russian mob boss (Ms. Winslet) and the corrupt detective (Mr. Mackie) and his band of thieves who are part of her payroll. The story has some predictable twists, but it lacks surprises. Its decent overall, but dont expect much. Rated R.The Witch (Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie) In Puritan New England circa 1630, a family that lives on its own in the woods is tormented by witchcraft. Its minimalist and moody, though not altogether enticing. Shocks come, but there are too few. Rated R.Deadpool 1/2(Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J.

The problem is hes now deformed, seeking revenge and worried his girlfriend (Ms. Baccarin) will no longer want to be with him. Sex, violence, profanity, great action, lots of laughs its everything a superhero movie should always be and almost never is. Except now. Rated R.Hail, 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.

LATEST FILMSHello, My Name Is DorisIs it worth $10? YesSally Field is a national treasure. The two-time Oscar winner (see below) has been a fixture on movie and television screens since her career began in the 1960s, ranging from her debut as Gidget on TV to her Oscar-nominated turn as Mary Todd Lincoln in Lincoln (2012). Yes Sally, we do really like you. She stars in Hello, My Name Is Doris, and as expected, shes a trip. She plays the title character, an eccentrically dressed 60-something whose life has largely passed her by. For years she lived with and cared for her now-deceased mother, all the while hoarding insignificant belongings and never marrying. Her friends Roz (Tyne Daly, hilarious) and Val (Caroline Aaron) are loving and supportive, which helps. She works in data entry in New York City. The new guy at work, John (Max Greenfield), is 20-something, attractive and easily likable. Doris develops a crush and after attending a self-help seminar full of platitudes like Theres seven days in the week, and someday isnt one of them, and Its Im possible, not Impossible feels inspired. But its not a professional aspiration, or a personal goal to clean the house or settle issues with her brother (Stephen Root) and his meddlesome wife (Wendi McClendon-Covey). No, Doris inspiration is much bolder than that: Shes going to get John to fall in love with her. Much of what follows in director Michael Showalters film is Doris going out of her way to try to get John to notice her romantically, which includes discovering how to cyber-stalk via Facebook with the help of Rozs granddaughter (Isabella Acres). Because of Ms. Fields warmth and innocence, the romantic longing comes across as charming (I doubt wed say the same if it were an older man pursuing a younger woman). Doris daydreams, and the looks she gives Johns girlfriend Brooklyn (Beth Behrs), are priceless, and the performance strikes just the right note of pity mixed with earnestness, which makes her easy to root for. Though this is a comedy at heart, there are dramatic moments that catch you by surprise but work well within the context of the story. You see, at her core Doris is a sad figure, insecure and looking for love that no one in his or her right mind thinks could be reciprocated. John by no means leads her on, yet shes delusional; one wonders if she ever stopped to think what an actual relationship with John would be like, and how theyd work as a couple. She is old enough to be his grandmother, after all. Regardless, because Ms. Field captures our favor early on, we root for Doris, bad decisions and all. Hello, My Name Is Doris is a cute movie, a feel-good lark targeted at an older crowd in the mood for a nice story. Its not all that memorable, but its good for a smile. i M o h e w dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> *Sally Field won Best Actress Oscars for Norma Rae (1979) and Places In The Heart (1984).

YesFor three seasons of House Of Cards, Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and his wife Claire (Robin Wright) lied, cheated, manipulated and in Franks case even murdered to get ahead in the minefield that is Washington, D.C., politics. And yet after all theyve achieved together, the end of season three left a cliffhanger: Frustrated and disenfranchised Claire told Frank she was leaving him. Fade to black. Viewers collectively said oh, no and were desperate for more. We got it with the arrival of season four on Netflix earlier this month. It picks up the day after last season ended with Frank on the campaign trail in New Hampshire. Claire has ventured off to her hometown of Dallas, ostensibly to visit her mother (Ellen Burstyn). Claires ulterior motive is soon clear: She wants to run for Congress, then governor, and even hires a highly touted campaign strategist (Neve Campbell) to make it happen. The problem is the longtime incumbent (Cicely Tyson) plans to endorse her daughter (LisaGay Hamilton) for the congressional seat. Through the first three episodes Frank deals with media rumors that his marriage is in trouble as well as links between him and the KKK. Soviet Premier Viktor Petrov (Lars Mikkelsen) pops up in episode two to cause more headaches. Meanwhile, Franks opposition in the primaries, Heather Dunbar (Elizabeth Marvel), looks for any opportunity she can get, Remy (Mahershala Ali) and Jackie (Molly Parker) are still sleeping together and scheming, and disgraced journalist Lucas Goodwin (Sebastian Arcelus) looks for a way out of prison to expose the truth about Frank. For his part, Frank has Chief of Staff Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly) on his side and little else. And then episode four happens, which is a total, absolute game changer in ways you cannot possibly see coming. With all these moving pieces its a good thing there are 13 episodes (all are currently available to stream on Netflix) to sort it all out, and that the quality of the storytelling remains top-notch. There are ample surprises and oh no he/she didnt! moments (especially the end of episode three) in the first few episodes, and the acting remains as superb as its always been. The stories, however, are treading deeper: Claires relationship with her mother explains why Claire is the way she is, and Frank and Claires marriage goes from essential allies to bitter enemies. They are equals of opposite gender in a patriarchal hierarchy that t d r h t e dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com INCLUDED WITH REGULAR GARDEN ADMISSION Members Free, $14.95 Adults, $9.95 Children (ages 4-14), 3 & under FreeVisitors are encouraged to purchase general admission tickets in advance by visiting www.naplesgarden.org educational displays, interactive demonstrations, and garden-related shopping in the beautiful setting of Naples Botanical Garden.

>> House of Cards is the rst original Net ix production to win an Emmy. Season one earned Emmys for cinematography, casting and directing (David Fincher). NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 17-23, 2016 C17 Claire is no longer willing to play along with. Whats more, its surely not a mistake that show runner Beau Willimon is putting Frank through the primaries and releasing season four in the midst of real-life Republican and Democratic candidates battling it out in primaries. Whether Mr. Willimon is saying something about the real process or candidates seems unlikely House of Cards has always existed as an alternate reality rather than social commentary but it does allow us to imagine whats going on behind the scenes with Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, etc. And darn if just the idea of all the wheelin and dealin doesnt make your head spin. My one complaint about the series is that far too many shots are darkened with unnecessary shadow, including daytime interior shots. It casts a gloom over the proceedings, which might be apropos but more than anything makes the otherwise glossy production an occasionally unpleasant viewing experience. If you havent seen any of the earlier seasons, be sure to watch them first. Franks ascension to the presidency is a sight to behold. In season four, we see if he gets to keep it.

Amedeo Obici and Mario Peruzzi (who later became his brother-in law) started the Planters Nut and Chocolate Co. in 1906 in Penn sylvania. They made Burgomaster Brand Salted Peanuts sold in bags, a new idea. Soon the nuts also were sold in tin cans and glass jars. The company recognized the need for advertising and branding. In 1916, it ran a contest for a trademark and Anthony Gentile, a 10-year-old boy, won with the sketch of a smiling peanut with arms and legs. It was later improved by an artist, and from 1913 to 1961, Mr. Peanut was dressed with a tophat, white spats, black arms and legs, gloves, shoes, an ebony cane and a monocle. For a few years during World War II, he carried a gun and looked like a soldier in a hard helmet. The company still uses Mr. Peanut as a mascot, giveaway and advertising symbol. Figurines, tall drugstore scales shaped like Mr. Peanut, costumes, books, dishes, glass jars, toys, charms, puzzles, textiles, salt and pepper shakers, silverware, even a sleeping bag, and games were made. Today there is a club called Peanut Pals. Mr. Peanut finally changed his clothes in a 2010 update. He now is seen in ads and commercials with an added white shirt, gloves, a black tie, vest, and black legs or pants. One of the biggest Mr. Peanuts collectibles is a 1940s costume. The wearers legs and arms poke out the sides of the composition peanut body that fits on the persons body. The person inside has to wear black sleeves, tights, shoes and socks that will show. Mr. Peanuts body has holes for eyes, a nose, mouth and ears to let the person breathe and talk. The head and top hat are taller than the body, making an almost 6-foot figure. One auctioned at a 2015 James Julia auction in Fairfield, Maine, for $474. Mr. Peanut is now also a colorful star in TV commercials with the voice of Robert Downey. To learn more about Mr. Peanut, visit PeanutPals.org for the Peanut This Mr. Peanut is dressed in a composition or fiberglass body with an attached tophat and monocle. It sold for $474 in 2015. nnsylv ao master s ol d in o n t h e n tin e d m i lan d o ve d 9 13 to e sse d s p ats, g loves, an d a r s dur c arried a so lt T he M r.

Pals Club. It is a group of collectors who have a club, newsletter and annual convention. Q: A friend has 10 Hans Wegner dining room chairs, eight side chairs and two armchairs. They were bought in Denmark in the early 1960s. They are wood with leather seats and backs. There is some cracking of the leather. Should the leather be replaced? Will this lower the value of the chairs? A: Hans Wegner (1914-2007) was a Danish furniture designer best known for his innovative chair designs. He designed over 500 different chairs, as well as hundreds of beds, desks, tables and lighting. Leather chairs should be kept out of the sun, away from heat, and in a room with enough humidity to keep the leather from drying out. Leather should be dusted regularly and can be cleaned with a special leather cleaner or by wiping with a damp cloth and soapy water. If the chair is unusable in its present condition, your friend should have a professional replace the leather. As long as a professional restoration is done using real leather, it will not lower the value of the chairs significantly. Q: I have a Dionne quintuplets candy dish I think is made of silver. It has the faces of each of the girls when they were babies embossed on the bottom and their names on the rim. Is it worth anything? A: You have a chrome (not silver) cereal bowl made in 1935 as a Quaker Oats premium commemorating the quintuplets first birthday. The Dionne quintuplets were born on May 28, 1934, and were the first set of quintuplets to survive. They became world famous because and were pictured in ads for Quaker Oats and several other products. Thousands of dolls and souvenir items were made picturing the girls at different ages. Emilie died in 1954, Marie in 1970, Yvonne in 2001. Annette and Cecile still live in Canada. Some are offered online for $13 to $25. Q: I am hoping you can give me the value of a vintage Polaroid Time-Zero OneStep camera. Also wondering, do you know if film for it is still available? A: In 1972, the Polaroid Corp. introduced its revolutionary SX-70 Land Camera. It was a single-lens reflex camera in a folding metal case with leather trim. It used a new kind of film in a cassette with its own battery that instantly developed and produced a print. A later model, the Polaroid OneStep, was made from 1977 to 1980. It used the same SX-70 film pack, but had a nonfolding white plastic body with Polaroids signature rainbow stripe. It was replaced in 1981 with the Time-Zero OneStep. The body was black plastic body with the rainbow stripe and it, too, used the SX-70 film pack. Polaroid stopped making the film for these cameras in 2008, but a group of investors, said to include some former Polaroid employees, organized The Impossible Project and began producing new instant black-and-white and color film in 2010. It is available in online shops. A Polaroid Time-Zero OneStep camera sells today from $35 to $50, but the film is pricey. Tip: Modern bleach can damage 18thcentury and some 19th-century dishes. To clean old dishes, try hydrogen peroxide or bicarbonate of soda. Each removes a different type of stain. The Kovels answer questions mailed to the column.

What does this mean for the show? Will it continue without him? Rina R., via emailA: Michael Weatherly may be out, but Mark Harmon and the rest of the cast are still in. CBS announced recently that it has renewed the police procedural through 2018, meaning we will get at least two more seasons of our favorite sleuthing crew. Glenn Geller, president of CBS Entertainment, released this statement: Its extraordinary that in its 13th season and with over 300 episodes to its credit, NCIS continues to excel at such a high level on a global scale. It is testimony to an amazing cast led on and off the screen by the exceptional Mark Harmon for skillfully bringing this universally appealing team of heroes to life, and to Gary Glasberg and his writers for crafting compelling stories that feature (their) signature blend of mystery, quirk, drama and comedy every single week. There is no word yet if the show will continue past season 15, but if it keeps up the way it has been, and if series star Mark Harmon stays happy, Id say that all signs point to yes for an extension past 2018. But, alas, only time will tell. Q: Ive been following Gretchen Mol since 1996s Rounders, and I loved her in :10 to Yuma and Boardwalk Empire. Now that Boardwalk is over, can I see her in anything else? Danny T., Morristown, New JerseyA: Next up for the gorgeous and talented actress is the Hulu-exclusive series Chance, which is based on the novel of the same name by Kem Nunn. She stars opposite House alum Hugh Laurie in this straight-to-order, 20-episode, two-season series. It focuses on Eldon Chance (Hugh Laurie), a forensic neuropsychiatrist. After an ill-advised decision regarding an alluring patient, Jaclyn Blackstone (Gretchen Mol), Chance finds himself in the crosshairs of her abusive spouse, who also happens to be a ruthless police detective.Q: I just saw London Has Fallen and loved Gerard Butler in it. Actually, I love just about every movie hes in. Can you tell me what hes working on now? Gina T., via emailA: This summer in London, the handsome Scot will start filming Hunter Killer, an action drama that also stars Gary Oldman. The film had stalled when the original production company, Relativity Media, filed for Chapter 11. While Relativity the studio behind Limitless, The Immortals and The Fighter is currently working with its creditors to emerge from bankruptcy, Millennium Films has since picked up the reins of Hunter Killer, breathing new life into the almost-dead film.

Im a sucker for noodles, even though I almost never order them (I blame overly positive memories of MSG-laden Top Ramen from my youth). I ordered a totally respectable rainbow roll and an iced tea, which ended up being what I think was shaken tea, common throughout Asia, and heavily laced with sweetened condensed milk. My rainbow roll was wrapped in escolar, tuna and salmon and hit all the high points. One More Thing: Thai Thai Noodle House also has dim sum, so we ordered pig stomach. And why not? It was quite tasty and very rich despite the small portion, with star anise and possibly cinnamon shining at the front of the thick broth it sat in. A Second Thing: The restaurant hasnt created a website yet, so curious eaters must take a seat and peruse the menu in person for now.

Different oaks create different tastesThere are two plants essential to winemaking: the grapevine and the oak tree. Since most wine is either fermented in oak or aged in it, maybe it would be good to know why and what kind of flavors and sensations we can expect from wine thats been oaked. When you start making wine, youre faced with a ton of decisions: which grapes to plant and where to plant them, when to harvest, what style of wine to make, what kind of container for fermentation and aging. It goes on and on. For the moment, lets forget about the grape stuff and concentrate on the whole container issue. Thats where all the oak comes in. For fermentation and aging, youll choose either oak barrels or stainless steel tanks, for very specific reasons. Why oak? When the liquid is in contact with oak, the wine softens and soaks up several flavor components. The effects are very different for red wines and whites. Second, the choice of which kind of oak (and how the barrels are made) has a dramatic influence on flavor, color, spoilage and other characteristics. Sometimes, the back label of a wine bottle will carry a statement like aged for 14 months in new American oak. Thats important, because different kinds of oak impart different kinds of flavors, and knowing which is which can help you guess what kind of drinking experience you might be in for. We can conveniently divide the whole oak issue into two or maybe four parts. You, as a winemaker, will choose either French or American oak, and then decide whether to buy new barrels (at about $1,500 a pop) or ones that have been used once or twice. Used barrels impart less flavor, and theyre cheaper. Depending on how a barrel is made, different types of flavors will be absorbed into the wine. The process of making barrels is called cooperage, so if you know anyone named Cooper, chances are that barrel making is what their distant ancestors did for a living. Barrels are made over heat, which allows the staves to be bent into the proper shapes. When fire is used, the sugars in the wood are caramelized, imparting flavors of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, toffee and toasted nuts, among others. Thats why those types of barrels are generally used for big reds such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel and Syrah. But when the same types of barrels are used for a white wine like Chardonnay, rich flavors of vanilla and oak itself leach into the wine. In fact, the oaky style of Chard was very much in fashion not long ago. Today, tastes have shifted toward the unoaked style, which delivers more of the pure fruit flavors and the zing of acidity. Many times, the front or back label will tell you whether the wine is unoaked. The major sources for wine barrel oak are France and the U.S. American oak is loose-grained, and the resulting flavors are bolder and more obvious. French oak imparts more subtle flavors. Depending on how much of those oak flavors you want in your wine, you might choose to do the actual fermentation in large oak vats, then transfer the wine into smaller barrels for aging. (The size of the aging barrel also affects flavor, but thats another story). Then youll figure out how long to mature it in the barrel, tasting it from time to time to see how its coming along. Thats my favorite part. Since barrels are so expensive, some winemakers take the cheap route, and get the oak characteristics into their wine by simply throwing oak chips into the vat. I hate it when that happens. Some wines have back labels that actually give you some real information. If you find one, remember that most top-quality red wines benefit from oak, as do white Burgundies and many Chardonnays. Naturally, new oak imparts stronger flavors than oak that has been used a few times. In red wines, look for those overtones of vanilla, caramel, cl ove, smoke and cinnamon. In whites, you can expect toasted almond, nutmeg, allspice and other yummies. And now our top picks for this month: Kendall Jackson Grand Reserve Chardonnay 2013 Nicely balanced between oak and acidity, with a nose of peach and apple. The aromas pay off on the palate. About $20. WW 89. Cambria Katherines Vineyard Chardonnay Santa Maria 2013 A light touch of oak with elegant aromas and flavors of tropical fruit, including pineapple and lemon. Lean and nicely balanced. About $22. WW 89-90. Mulderbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Ros 2014 This South African offering gives up aromas of lavender and roses, with refreshingly tart flavors of rose petals, pomegranate and strawberry. WW 90.Ask the Wine WhispererQ. How much wine comes from an acre of grapevines? Randy M., West Palm BeachA. Wine math: An acre of vineyard can produce anywhere from 2 to 13 tons of grapes, depending on how severely the grower limits the yield. The fewer tons, the better the wine. Lets assume that a grower produces 5 tons of grapes per acre. That works out to about 13.5 barrels, or just under 4,000 bottles. It would give you a little under 16,000 glasses of wine. Sample widely. g y o p e d jerryGREENFIELDvino@floridaweekly.com Winemakers choose either French or American oak, and then decide whether to buy new barrels, costing about $1,500, or ones that have been used once or twice.

CUISINE NEWSBeef is the prime attraction at Manhattan SteakhouseThe misadventure of naively heading to a waterfront Bonita Springs restaurant in season may have contributed subconsciously to my enjoyment of Manhattan Steakhouse, where I tucked into what tasted like the most satisfying slab of meat Id eaten in years. Each bite of the cowboy ribeye burst with the primal pleasures of blood and fire and aged beef. Except for a few slices shared with my dining companion, who deserved consoling over a mouth-puckering plate of sole, all 22 ounces of this butter-t ender bone-in steak were savored and consumed. If no one else had been around, I might even have gnawed on the bone. Seriously, though, theres little doubt that that steak would have been equally satisfying even without our earlier disastrous foray down Bonita Beach Road. Restaurant after restaurant on the stretch toward the beach had diners lined up outdoors, and motorists couldnt even get near some of the parking lots. What were we thinking? An impulsive U-turn in hairy traffic and we were headed back up U.S. 41 in search of sustenance elsewhere. Manhattan Steakhouse was on the redo list, and with its hidden location we were optimistic we could get a table there even in March. When this restaurant opened four years ago on the backside of Burnt Pine Plaza near Pelican Landing (look for the Zazou boutique), the owners talked about evoking the New York City steakhouse tradition (hence the name). It does have a lot of the signature accouterments: classic pressed-copper ceiling, burnished dark wood, sculptural metal chandeliers and sconces, white tablecloths and bow-tied waiters. The menu boasts an array of steaks, from a $32 8-ounce filet mignon to a market-price 80-ounce porterhouse for four, and I daresay the prices in general are more affordable than theyd be at Smith & Wollensky or Peter Luger. When I visited Manhattan Steakhouse a few months after it opened, I didnt think it was hitting the heady mark it was aiming for, though I had no beef with the steaks. I still have reservations, and theyre still about the non-marquee offerings. The service remains highly professional. The hostess didnt even ask if we had reservations, seating us immediately at a four-top against a back wall prime seating for observing the dining room. A few people were sitting at the bar and other tables, and the restaurant gradually filled up as the evening progressed. A well-chilled Hendricks martini ($12) soothed the stress of traffic trauma, but my companion couldnt taste the gin in his Hendricks and tonic ($10). He reordered, thinking the waiter might have heard wrong, but the second G&T still tasted mostly of tonic. On our previous visit we started with salads, so this time we opted for appetizers of fried zucchini ($10) and coconut shrimp ($13). The former were small batons of squash lightly hand-battered and fried to golden crispiness similar to tempura and served with a flavorful marinara sauce for dipping. The coconut shrimp would have benefited from a similar restraint when it came to the coating, which was so heavy that it obscured the sweet shellfish within. The four shrimp were butte rflied, so the meat of the shellfish was flattened thin while the breading was disproportionately thick. Our waiter quietly whisked dishes away and returned with glasses of Fronterra Chardonnay ($8) and Calia Malbec ($10) we ordered for the main course. Bythe-glass options here could afford to be more than supermarket varieties. As weve already done justice to Manhattan Steakhouses beef, which is USDA Prime, dry-aged for three to four weeks and cooked to sizzling perfection under an 1,800-degree broiler, well have to return to the less-than-satisfying sole ($36). This fish has a delicacy of flavor paralleled by the fragility of its flesh. We give the restaurant points for a generous serving of fillets but must subtract them for the harshness of the lemon-caper sauce. It should simply have brightened the flavor of the fish; instead, it overwhelmed it. As with most classic steakhouses, vegetables and starches are offered a la carte. We decided to skip the potato options and simply enjoyed plump spears of steamed asparagus ($7.95) with our main course. Besides, we had desserts to consider. One of three selections made in-house, the apple strudel ($9) did not represent the kitchen well. The pastry was tough and tasted burned (we had smelled something burning in the kitchen during our meal, but surely they wouldnt be baking pastry in the middle of dinner service). A wedge of pecan pie ($9) was good, and we liked that it wasnt as cloyingly sweet as most versions. Four years in, Manhattan Steakhouse should be more consistently on the mark than it is. Nevertheless, it has to be said that the restaurant has succeeded staking its reputation on its steak. DREW STERWALD / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe coconut shrimp had very thick breading.

Prime homesites still remain at Sienna Reserve Community approaching 85% sold mark From mid-morning right through to late afternoon the Sienna Reserve sales center is undoubtedly one of the busiest places in North Naples. Several hundred people visit the gated, single-family community on a weekly basis, due in part to the recent completion of its three models. After touring the stunning models its not unusual to see visitors drive further into the community to admire all the home construction taking place from one end to the other. They have a lot to look at. As of mid-March, approximately 20 of the communitys 45 homes are in various stages of construction, with the first homes slated to be completed this Spring. With all the traffic to the sales center and all the home construction occurring, one might get the notion that all the prime homesites are taken. Rest assured, thats not the case. Some of our best homesites are still available, stated Andy Zuckerman, President of Zuckerman Homes. But, time is of the essence considering the high interest in the community and the rapid rate of sales. Zuckerman encourages anyone looking for a quality-built custom home, priced from the mid-$600s, to visit Sienna Reserve today. Sienna Reserve is an intimate enclave of 45 luxury custom single-family homes located on Livingston Road, between Vanderbilt Beach Road and Immokalee Road. Although eight thoughtfullydesigned floor plans are offered, Zuckerman Homes welcomes purchasers to customize their home. 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. Even those with their own plans can bring them to Sienna Reserve. The outstanding architects at Zuckerman Homes are happy to transform dreams into reality. Speaking of dreams, many visitors are calling Sienna Reserve their dream community. Thats due in part to the fact only 14 of the communitys 30 acres are being developed. The remaining 16 acres comprise a freshwater lake and untouched nature preserve. Sienna Reserve also has a dream location. Sienna Reserve 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, 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 are also in close proximity to the community. But the closest attraction is actually right next door to Sienna Reserve and just a brief walk or drive away. North Collier Regional Park, located to our north, is one of the countys premier parks, stated Zuckerman. It features walking trails and boardwalks, fishing lakes, a fitness center complex, a world-class childrens museum and soccer and softball fields. This amazing park is an attraction every member of the family can enjoy. Also close by is Tiburon Golf Club. Thats important because 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. Nearly every purchaser is taking advantage of this outstanding opportunity, said Zuckerman. Our relationship with Tiburon Golf Club is just another example of the added value our purchasers can enjoy immediately. Finding a place to store a set or two of golf clubs isnt a problem in any Sienna Reserve home. That becomes very evident when touring the models. Every visitor loves the open floor plans whether theyre looking for a single-story or two-story home, Zuckerman said. And being a family-run company, we understand the importance of having plenty of storage areas. The communitys 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, the largest home offered at Sienna Reserve, 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. The five remaining oneand two-story floor plans range in size from 2,344 to 4,135 square feet under air and 3,144 to 4,980 total square feet. Every one associated with Sienna Reserve is truly proud of this exceptional community, said Zuckerman. We look forward to welcoming more visitors to our doors. Were confident theyll find the perfect home to fit their lifestyle. But considering our current pace of sales, I wouldnt put off that visit for very long. The Sienna Reserve sales center and models are open Monday Saturday, 10 am to 5:30 pm, and Sunday, 11 am to 5:30 pm. For more information regarding Sienna Reserve, call (239) 643-4333 or visit SiennaReserve.com. b w 3 f m b u h i c w 5 r t Large windows bring in an abundance of natural light into the Magnolia Flex models dining area.

Kalea Bays sales success continues as first high-rise reaches skyward Community clubhouse also under constructionThe construction sites are extremely busy at Kalea Bay, the high-rise community being developed by Soave Real Estate on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. The onsite sales center is also very active as potential buyers discover what the gated, resort-lifestyle, luxury high-rise community has to offer. According to Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing, sales have been phenomenal. With our recent sales activity, our total sales volume is approaching the $120 million mark, said Wilson. Sales in the first tower are nearing 70, which is well ahead of original projections. Wilson cites the fact the construction on the residential tower is well underway, with the eighth floor now visible from Vanderbilt Drive, as one of the reasons for the communitys sales success. Another major factor is that the communitys clubhouse is also under construction, she said. This is helping buyers see the value of purchasing now. According to Wilson, both the tower and clubhouse are slated to be completed in the summer of next year. Our first residents will be able to enjoy the clubhouse and all its amenities the minute they move in, she said. The 22-story tower, with 120 luxury residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Six floor plans are available at Kalea Bay with prices currently starting at $1.3 million. Residences 1 and 6 are 4-bedroom/4bath plans with 3,755 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with three-bedrooms plus den and three-and-a-half baths have 3,835 total square feet while residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/four-bath plans with 3,921 total square feet. All residents of Kalea Bay will revel in gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence, 9 high ceilings and wood floors throughout. The custom kitchens feature Wolf and Subzero appliances, a natural gas range, Downsview cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island. The master bedroom has an oversized walk-in closet and the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. Additional features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. Hightech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features. Spectacular views are available to every single resident at Kalea Bay, said Wilson. With all our rooftop amenities, including our sky lounge, pool and open-air fitness center, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves that surround us and, of course, the beaches. Those beaches include, Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9. Construction of Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse began earlier this year and is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. Upon completion, it will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. Nearby will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts and 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse area, to a designated Gulf beach. Our clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of Kalea Bay, said Wilson. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center. It is located just north of Wiggins Pass just off Vanderbilt Drive at 13910 Old Coast Road in North Naples. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com.

Golf experience, construction start attracting Seaglass homebuyersWith construction poised to begin April 4 and over $90 million in sales already processed, luxury homebuyers continue to be attracted by the exceptional value offered at the Seaglass at Bonita Bay high-rise tower being built by The Ronto Group. With the combination of alluring tower and penthouse floor plans, various Bonita Bay Club membership opportunities, and Bonita Bays award-winning lifestyle that includes five golf courses, Seaglass is redefining the high-rise living experience. The caliber of the Bonita Bay Clubs golf operation is well-known to golfers worldwide. A two-story, 15,000 squarefoot facility houses the golf pro shop, offices, underground bag storage, and charging for 260 carts. Director of Golf E.J. McDonnell, PGA oversees a staff of 25 PGA Professionals. Ten of the PGA Professionals and seven Fitness Professionals are Titleist Performance Institute Certified. An extensive instructional program includes private and group lessons, golf schools, and clinics on three dedicated practice areas. Members have access to the latest equipment and benefit from professional club-fitting services. Three on-property Bonita Bay West courses were designed by Arthur Hills to preserve and enhance the natural features of the land. The courses achieved Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary status in 1995. Measuring 6,910 yards, the Bay Island course is the most challenging of the Clubs five courses. Water hazards, sand traps, and stands of oak and cypress await errant shots. While the vistas from the tees are captivating, golfers must be long and accurate off the tee to score well. Undulating elevated greens present a challenge to approach shots. Recovering from missed shots demands an accurate short game. The recently renovated Creekside course is a favorite of the Clubs members. A challenging 6,632 yards, Creekside features broad fairways and limited carries while changes in elevation create a subtle feeling of rolling hills. Bunkering and moguls add to the challenge of reaching the greens in regulation. Grass-face bunkers protect greens that are undulating and fast. Extra room off many of the tees provides an opportunity to aggressively attack some holes. The 6,483 yard Marsh golf course winds through wetland areas with oaks and palmettos. The wetlands and vegetation provide both landscaping and water hazards. The setting provides golfers with a sense of peace during their round. Many of the holes are more about target golf than the layouts at Bonita Bays other courses and require every club in the bag. In 1990, the Marsh course was ranked 60th on Golf Digests list of the 100 greatest courses in America. Two Tom Fazio courses at the nearby Bonita Bay East provide a pure golf experience on over 1,000 acres with preserved wetlands and no residential development. It was the first private 36-hole club in the world to achieve certification through the Audubon Internationals Signature Program and has been designated as a Certified Signature Sanctuary since 1998. A 8,200 square feet clubhouse is nestled among slash pines and Sabal palms and features a golf shop, main dining room, mixed grill room, bar, and locker areas. Numerous local and state PGA and FSGA tournaments have been conducted on the Bonita Bay East Cypress course. It is considered one of the best tournament sites in Southwest Florida. The front nine is forgiving off the tee, but the greens are protected by deep bunkers. On the inward nine, the holes are separated by stands of cypress trees and wetlands. A challenging 7,059 yards, the course features undulating greens that are some of the fastest in the area. The 6,813 yard Sabal course is another exceptional Bonita Bay course that brings golfers and nature together. With five par fives and five par threes, the course presents numerous challenges. Alligators, wild turkeys, deer, and bald eagles are often seen near the lake that comes into play on holes 9 through 12. The green complexes are large and feature high green speeds. Situated nearly 250 feet from its closest neighboring building, the 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass tower will feature fullycompleted, ready for occupancy residences with designer-selected premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available. Three luxurious tower residence great room floor plans at Seaglass range from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet under air and are priced from just over $1 million. The spacious tower residences will include dual private elevator grand foyers, large island kitchens, three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths, or three bedrooms plus a den or fourth bedroom and three-and-a-half baths, walk-in closets in the owners suite, and sliders opening to multiple outdoor spaces that include a gas grill. Ten-foot ceiling heights are included per plan. The spectacular penthouse residences at Seaglass are priced from $2.85 million and offer approximately 4,600 square feet of air conditioned space with a dual private elevator grand foyer, a large great room, spacious gourmet kitchen, three bedrooms plus a den or fourth bedroom and three-and-a-half baths, or four bedrooms plus a den and four-and-a-half baths. Ceiling heights of 10-feet eightinches or 11-feet four-inches are included per plan. Several of the penthouse residences feature especially inviting expanded outdoor spaces with exceptionally large terraces, including two private rooftop terraces that will be enjoyed by the residents of the penthouses on the buildings uppermost floor. Pricing for the Seaglass residences will increase once construction starts. Visit the Seaglass Sales Center at 26951 Country Club Drive within Bonita Bay from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and Sundays from noon to 5:00 p.m. Visit Seaglass online at www.seaglassatbonitabay.com.
