Among the 43 snakes removed was the largest male python on record in South Florida, weighing more than 140 pounds and measuring more than 16 feet in length, which was discovered in a rural area of Rookery Bay. Burmese pythons are learning how to survive and breed locally. The Conservancy has partnered with scientists and land managers from Denison University, Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, U.S. Geological Survey and Southwest Florida Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area to study and address the ecological problem. They are locating pythons in the wild, working with public and private land owners where the pythons have been discovered and removing the invasive species.

COMMENTARYThe politics of fearIf I heard it once, I heard it a thousand times: Terrorism is at the top of the list of worries keeping Americans awake at night second only to their fear of a poorly performing economy and government. In December, following the horrific attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, a Gallup poll confirmed this conventional wisdom, reporting that 16 percent of all Americans named terrorism as the most important problem facing the U.S. Gallop said the number represented a substantial spike from prior polls, a change hardly surprising given the timing and the context of the survey. I thought about this as I went about my end-of-year holiday shopping. Despite the poll results, fear of terrorism was not in evidence among the holiday throngs. Public spaces were teeming with people and the malls were packed all hours of the day and night. Snowbirds added to the South Florida clamor. The airports bustled and baggage check was overloaded with the flotsam of enthusiastic travelers. It was another record-setting year of out-of-state visitors making their way to the Sunshine State, terrorism be damned. If the potential of domestic terrorism was on peoples minds, it wasnt proven by their public behaviors. I found this to be strangely encouraging people doing what they normally do, despite our communal acknowledgement of the possibility even the eventuality of unspeakable acts of terrorism in our future. The narrative is otherwise if you presume the Gallop poll is an accurate barometer of the expectations forecast of American participation in a robust social life. The 70,000-plus attending Super Bowl 50 said otherwise. as did the flow of people who routinely came, went and gathered in public places all over the country. So from a man-on-the street perspective, the poll findings seem at odds with how Americans are actually managing to live productive lives. The theme of perpetual terrorism hasnt overwhelmed our resilience or capacity to live in relative tranquility, though we know there are substantial risks the calm may be shattered by horrific acts. This stubborn refusal to surrender our hopes, dreams, and aspirations and succumb to our darkest fears, is a hallmark of our cultural character as Americans. We dont give up; we get going. This is despite all the negative news roiling the troubled waters of our homeland. Though we are witness to a gathering storm in an increasingly dangerous world and our safe harbor from these threats cannot be assured, we still gather in the places known as soft targets, refuse to surrender the values that made this nation great, and are a beacon to the world of democratic freedom. It is but one of the contradictions current in American life. There is nowadays plenty of pull and tug between the state of the country as expressed in broad, national themes and how instead Americans experience those themes in the communities where they live. A recent article by James Fallows in The Atlantic magazine explores this contradiction. The story is based on a 54,000-mile journey Fallows and his wife took across America over the course of three years. His findings challenge the conventional wisdom among radical populists that our nation is going to hell in a hand basket. He writes, Many people are discouraged about America but the closer they are to the action at home, the better they like what they see there is a process of revival and reinvention that has largely and understandably been overlooked in the media and political concentration on the strains of this second Gilded Age. His article goes on to chronicle many surprising sources of strength and optimism appearing all across America. It is an especially good read in the context of the 2016 presidential campaign. His findings are in sharp contrast to the apocalyptic gloom and doom among political arsonists who believe America is unraveling and is in a state of decay, its prestige and power among the nations of the world no longer substantiated by the integrity and class of its leadership. These are the people who believe the only way to Make America Great Again is to burn it to the ground. They are selling fear, hate, and anger among Americans as a voter entitlement to throw democracy away with both hands. If they win, autocracy will take its place. Observes Fallows, There are a lot more positive narratives out there, but they are lonely and disconnected Until the countrys mood does change, the people who have been reweaving the national fabric will be more effective if they realize how many other people are working toward the same end. It is a message of hope and optimism we should hold dear as democracy itself. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian. She writes frequently on issues of politics, public policy and philanthropy.

These are the folks, he declared at a rally in 1968, that people like us are sick and tired of. Youve been getting a good lesson in what weve been talking about. They talk about free speech but wont allow it to others. Wallace knew the protesters were priceless to him in stoking passions and drawing media attention. They on our payroll, he joked. George Wallace had unsurpassed skills as a popular agitator, but even he would have to admire how Donald Trump parlayed a canceled Chicago event where supporters and protesters shoved and punched one another into wall-to-wall media coverage and an advertisement for his alleged stalwartness against the forces of anarchy. Trump bears a striking resemblance to Wallace, another entertaining, antiestablishment bomb-thrower who became to the shock of respectable people a kind of tribune of the American working class. He is a voice of rough-hewn populism that hasnt had such potent expression since the Alabama governor ran for president, finding more support than anyone thought possible. (Stephan Leshers biography, George Wallace: American Populist, is the source for much of what follows.) Like Trump, Wallace was hated by his own partys establishment, and widely discounted by political observers until his strength in 1968 as a third-party candidate became undeniable. He talked tough. He warned protesters getting in the way of his car that it would be the last car they ever blocked. He was anti-intellectual. He lambasted pointy-headed professors who cant even park a bicycle straight. He hated the media (while soaking up coverage). Journalists were sissybritches intellectual morons. He relished the idea of cracking down on speech he disliked. He promised to seek indictment against any college professor who calls for a communist victory (in Vietnam). He was light on policy. He didnt produce a platform until three weeks before the election in 1968, and it was full of meaningless platitudes. He had no principled opposition to government, and in fact, touted programs he found congenial. He had no hesitation in making absurdly paranoid accusations, claiming Richard Nixon was manipulating public opinion in 1968 through his control of pollsters. Like Trump, Wallace didnt run a highly organized political operation he lived off the land of his own native political talent and the fervent support of his fans. He relied on what one journalist called in a formulation that could apply equally well to Trump his uncanny and total and undistracted instincts for the primitive dynamics of the American democratic system. Wallace was a hideous racist who appealed to racists, but also crystallized a deeper anger and discontent with a country that had gone soft and wasnt winning anymore. He obviously wasnt a statesman, but a demagogue who exploited these popular passions and made them more base. The same is true of Trump. Yet Wallace never came close to capturing a major partys nomination and arriving at the doorstep of the presidency. With Donald Trump leading in the Republican contest, the real estate mogul would probably have not just George Wallaces respect, but his envy. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Fascism: Can it happen here?When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross, goes a saying that is widely attributed to the first American to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, Sinclair Lewis. In 1935, Lewis wrote a novel called It Cant Happen Here, positing fascisms rise in the United States. We were taught that fascism was defeated in 1945, with the surrender of Germany and Japan in World War II. Yet the long shadows of that dark era are falling on the presidential campaign trail this year, with eruptions of violence, oaths of loyalty complete with Nazi salutes and, presiding over it all, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it, the 20th-century philosopher George Santayana wrote. He lived in Europe through both world wars, and witnessed Italian fascism firsthand. Fascism was the violent political movement founded by Benito Mussolini, who took control of Italy in 1922. Mussolini had his political opponents beaten, jailed, tortured and killed, and ruled with an iron fist until he was deposed as Italy surrendered to the Allies in 1943. He was known as Il Duce, or The Leader, and provided early support to the nascent Nazi movement in Germany as Adolf Hitler rose to power in the 1930s.Why is this relevant today? It was Donald Trump who recently retweeted one of Mussolinis quotes: It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep. When NBC confronted Trump for retweeting the fascists words, he replied, Sure, its OK to know its Mussolini. Look, Mussolini was Mussolini. ... Its a very good quote, its a very interesting quote. If only the fascist comparisons were limited to his tweets. His rallies have become hotbeds of violent confrontations, consistently fanned by Trumps heated rhetoric from the podium. After a Black Lives Matter protester was kicked and punched at one of his rallies, Trump said, approvingly, Maybe he should have been roughed up. At a rally in Las Vegas in February, after an anti-Trump protester disrupted the event and was escorted out, Trump bellowed: You know what they used to do to guys like that when they were in a place like this? Theyd be carried out on a stretcher, folks. He went on, Id like to punch him in the face, Ill tell you that. Weeks later, a protester was punched in the face at a Trump rally. Rakeem Jones, a 26-year-old African-American man, was being led out of a stadium event by security guards in Fayetteville, N.C., when John McGraw, a white Trump supporter, sucker-punched Jones in the face. The local sheriffs deputies then wrestled the man to the ground not McGraw, who threw the punch, but Jones, the victim. The TV program Inside Edition interviewed McGraw immediately after the assault. The next time we see him, we might have to kill him, McGraw said. He was arrested the next day. Trump has personally pledged to pay the legal defense bills for any rally supporter charged with violence against protesters, including those of McGraws. Trump also waffled when asked to disavow the support of the Ku Klux Klan and its onetime Grand Wizard, David Duke. Donald Trump shows a rather alarming willingness to use fascist themes and fascist styles. The response this gets, the positive response, is alarming, said Robert Paxton on the Democracy Now! news hour. Considered the father of fascism studies, he is professor emeritus of social science at Columbia University. Paxton gave a short history of the rise of fascism in Germany: In the election of 1924, (Hitler) did very poorly, for a marginal party. Then you have the Depression in 1929 and 1930. ... Theres this huge economic crisis with tens of millions unemployed, and theres also a governmental deadlock. You cannot get any legislation passed. Paxton continued, The German Weimar Republic really ceased to function as a republic in 1930, because nothing could be passed. ... So, between 1930 and 1933, President von Hindenburg ruled by decree. And the political elites are desperate to get out of that situation. And heres Hitler, who has more votes by this time than anybody else. Hes up to 37 percent. He never gets a majority, but hes up to 37 percent. And they want to bring that into their tent and get a solid mass backing. And so ... they bring him in. The partnership that the German elites forged with Hitler and his Nazi Party didnt work out quite the way they hoped. He took power by subterfuge and by force, arrested and killed his opponents, and plunged Europe into the deadliest war in human history. Donald Trump is fanning the flames of bigotry and racism. He is exploiting the fears of masses of white, working-class voters who have seen their economic prospects disappear. Should the Republican nominating process end in a contested convention this summer in Cleveland, Trump told CNN on March 16, I think youd have riots. Im representing ... many, many millions of people.

Coupon Expires 3/31/16.Naples Bonita Springs ROOTED IN NAPLESEven in paradise, there are creeps among usBecause everyone is still going full tilt during tourist season and schools are taking their spring breaks, a recent incident reminds us there are a few spooks who will take advantage of our current distraction. Over the weekend, Collier County Sheriffs Office released an alert about a man who approached two children, approximately aged 6 and 9, took their picture and tried to persuade them to enter his vehicle. According to the witness report, the children seemed reluctant to do so and ultimately didnt. One of the reasons we feel its important to devote space to this incident is to remind everyone, ourselves included, that a lot of people are circulating through Naples during the last push of tourist season. They arent all friendly Midwesterners convening at Trader Joes or retired CEOs hanging out at the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club. Everyone loves a good beach, even creeps. And while every city has its homegrown creeps, we should be mindful that were hosting some strangers who might not be the best addition to our generally happy, well-intentioned mix. With that in mind, we spoke to Sgt. Rebecca Gonzalez with CCSOs Crime Prevention Unit about how to keep some creeper from snatching your kids while they enjoy spring break. The most important step to preventing an encounter with a stranger, she said, is to talk to kids about personal safety long before a stranger has the opportunity to approach them. Making uninformed decisions in a stressful situation is dangerous. I think this is a good time to talk about preparation for these kinds of incidents, Sgt. Gonzalez said. Safety does require preparation more particularly, just open a dialogue with your family and figure out what is suspicious and what kind of safety measures are planned so theyre not figuring things out as its happening. She also emphasized that pretty basic safety measures go a long way: Children shouldnt play outside alone, and parents should enforce check-ins and perimeters. One of the most crucial points for the community, however, is to be observant and report suspicious activity in a timely manner. Notification needs to be immediate. Thirty minutes to a day later doesnt work, she said. Its not bothering us, and we want to respond immediately and solve the issue. If your sixth sense goes off, watch and see if its suspicious. Usually your gut feeling is right, but even if its not, its not going to hurt to have a deputy come out. Luckily, the children in question had their wits about them and took the precautionary measure of playing together. They were in a private neighborhood, and its safe to assume the kids were doing what kids do: freely playing in their own territory where they are entitled to the expectation of safety. A quick search at colliersheriff.com reveals that while reports like this dont happen every day, strangers approaching children playing in their own neighborhoods is not a terribly infrequent occurrence. Now that Sgt. Gonzalez has laid out how important community action is, lets all keep an eye out for a blue compact car with a license plate starting with E64. Reporters described the man as older, about mid-height and with white hair. People who spot him or have any information to share should call CCSO at 252-9300.

He was 66 years old and had led the Minnesota-based company since 1976. Originally founded as Sage Company by his father 51 years ago, the company develops and manages senior living communities, residential communities and commercial properties in 10 states. The Goodman Group built Terracina Grand senior living campus in Naples in 2001 and opened its groundbreaking memory care community, Villa at Terracina Grand, here in April 2015. Mr. Goodman and Kim Campbell, wife of Glen Campbell, were here earlier this month to host a screening of the film Glen Campbell: Ill Be Me at Silverspot Cinema. The documentary follows the singer/songwriters final tour before Alzheimers disease rendered him unable to perform any longer. (See photos from the screening on page C21.) Mr. Goodman was the author of two books: The Road to Self: Reflections from a Soulful CEO and Moments Matter: Everyday Inspiration from a Soulful CEO. Johns mission was to change how people experience aging and death by resetting the standard of senior care and living, said Craig Edinger, COO of The Goodman Group. His philosophy put people at the heart of our company. His ever-advancing insight showed us whats possible in the quality of care for others. He touched us with the depth of his compassion and his relentless drive to always do more in the service of others. Mr. Goodman and his team of 4,200 employees celebrated the companys 50th anniversary in 2015. Mr. Edinger steps into the executive-in-charge role effective immediately. A formal succession plan will be announced at a later date.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 24-30, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYareas such as Orlando, and if you add the small number of voters registered with minor parties to their ranks, they now outnumber either the Democrat or Republican parties in 13 counties. Independents skew younger and are more ethnically diverse than their partisan counterparts. But as a group that makes up nearly a quarter of Floridas 12 million voters, their personal characteristics are as diverse as their beliefs, which span the political spectrum from liberal to conservative and everywhere in between. Daniella Libasci, 19, recalled registering as an independent in high school in Miami, feeling that the political parties were too rigid in their views. Id rather be more open-minded to everything and try to see all viewpoints rather than one specific way, like rather than a my way or the highway type of deal, said Ms. Libasci, who is studying marketing and law at Florida Gulf Coast University. When youre thinking that way youre already setting yourself up for conflict. West Boca Raton resident W. Michael Trout, 57, is running for U.S. Representative in District 21 as a progressive independent. I think people are sick and tired of party politics, said Mr. Trout, who works as a taxi and delivery driver. Political experts, candidates and voters point to a host of reasons independents distance themselves from the two-party system. Their values dont square with the Republican or Democratic parties. Theyre turned off by angry and divisive partisanship, intransigence leading to gridlock in Washington and in the state Legislature, and the influence of money on campaigns. There is growing social acceptance for not choosing a party, and among younger voters less interest in joining oldfashioned (non-Internet) civic groups in general. Some voters dont choose a party for economic or professional reasons for example, a business owner may not want to align with a party, and a journalist may wish to appear neutral. Some just dont know what to pick. I think the move is more of a consequence of frustration people are feeling in their personal lives, that being aligned with one party or another is not beneficial, said Annisa Karim, former chair of the Democratic Party in Collier County, and a candidate for the County Commission. And I think weve seen such gridlock in Congress, even at the state level things are so partisan, people are very frustrated with that.No party affiliationIn Florida, 2.9 million voters are independents. We define that as meaning when they registered to vote they checked a box marked no party affiliation (NPA) or didnt check a box at all, which at least on paper amounts to the same thing. If you include about 350,000 minor party voters to independents, 27 percent of the states electorate doesnt identify with a major party, while 35 percent are Republican and 38 percent Democrat. The migration away from the major parties doesnt show signs of slowing down. And its a trend thats happening across the United States. The biggest change in partisan affiliation in recent years is the growing share of Americans who decline to affiliate with either party, reads a Pew Research Center study which examined party affiliation in the U.S. from 1992 to 2014. The rise in the share of independents has been particularly dramatic over the past decade. The growth of independents is fueled especially by first-time registrants who are coming of age, said Steven Vancore, president of ClearView Research, which polls voters and tracks their registration numbers. He found since 2012, about 45 percent of new voter registrations in Florida dont choose a major party, with Democrats and the GOP roughly splitting the difference. These are those new Millennial (born after 1980) and generational voters who are coming in and saying, I dont identify with either one of those parties, so why should I register with a party? said Marian P. Johnson, vice president of political strategy for the Florida Chamber of Commerce. Independents include plenty of older voters, too, but less than the major parties, ClearView found. About 42 percent of voters who dont identify with a major party in Florida are older than 50, compared to 55 percent of Democrats and 61 percent of Republicans.Diversity among independents The Pew study found that 44 percent of Hispanics and 46 percent of Asian-Americans identify themselves as independents, with most of the balance divided up between the major parties. And whites are more likely than blacks to say theyre independents. Florida records show Hispanics make up the second largest segment of independent voters, while the majority are white, but those monolithic labels dont always reflect the diversity in individuals. Take Souraya Faas, a 34-year-old teacher in Miami who is running for president of the United States as an independent candidate. Her parents were born in Aleppo, Syrias largest city, although her mother was raised in Venezuela. She identifies as an Arab American but also culturally a Latina and religiously a Catholic. She was born in New York City and has strong ties to the Italian immigrant neighborhood in Brooklyn where she grew up. If elected she would be, among other firsts, the first single president. She speaks English, Arabic and Spanish fluently and understands Italian and French. Although Ms. Faas is a registered Republican, she ran with no party affiliation because of the gridlock that has occurred between partisans in Washington and Florida. She aims to bring everyone together and reunite them. Jacksonville resident Rickey Joe Story, 62, is white and grew up in the South. He doesnt have much use for the top candidates in this presidential election. Hes running himself as The Average Joe for President. I simply dont care about the major party candidates, he said. I havent paid any attention to anyone and listened to any of the debates, but (Donald) Trump is so pervasive in the marketplace its hard to ignore. A retiree who worked in industrial sales and marketing, he is a nondenominational Christian whose priorities are, in order: God, family, and country. It doesnt matter which party you join. Its money and power and contacts that wins elections, he said. U.S. independents The trend toward voters pulling away from the two-party system is nationwide. Thirty-nine percent of voters call themselves independents, Pew Center found, while 32 percent identify as Democrats and 23 percent as Republicans. Dr. Peter Bergerson, a political scientist at Florida Gulf Coast University, sees the rise of nonparty voters among other factors manifesting itself in the success of Mr. Trump and Bernie Sanders in the presidential primaries, in their success at rallying millions of voters across the country. This is a reflection of the decline of the cohesion of political parties, Dr. Bergerson said. Its really prevalent and obvious in the Republican party with (Donald) Trump. And Republicans, their hairs on fire with how to deal with him. Although Mr. Trump is a Republican and Mr. Sanders a Democrat, theyre arguably the closest thing to independent candidates on the national stage. Both have been willing to confront their respective party establishments on issues such as campaign finance rules, refusing to take money from Super PACs. Fort Myers resident Steven Hall, 37, said he plans to vote for Mr. Trump and considers himself nonpartisan. Just being honest, I dont believe in the two-party system, said Mr. Hall, who works in sales. I dont think you should only have two choices, honestly. He supports Donald Trump because he doesnt like politicians. And I like that and that speaks to me, because I dont like politicians. Mixed bagIndependent voters as a group are a mixed bag of political beliefs, but can end up the deciding factor in elections when they vote in large numbers. Its really hard to get a clear definition (of independents) that is all encompassing, Dr. Bergerson said. Its the whole gamut of things that are rolled into one that are referred to as kind of independents. That bloc of voters can determine the outcome. In fact, it did determine the o utcome of the presidential election four years ago here in Florida because President Obama got about 55 percent of those people who considered themselves to be independents or nonparty. In spite of playing an important role in an election, they often go unnoticed, he added. They are kind of like an iceberg. They dont get a lot of exposure and 90 percent are under the surface, publicly. I think candidates and the party are aware of it but the general public is not aware of the significance that the noparty (voter) plays in the election. Pollster Mr. Vancore found that nomajor party voters lean left on social issues such as marriage, marijuana, guns and religion in government while they are center right on fiscal matters, feeling like Democrats are not adequately concerned about controlling spending. And they are far right on Obamacare. They dont like being told they have to buy Obamacare, he said. Theyre young and theyre healthy and very unhappy with what theyre seeing in the health care market. FGCU student Lisa Billeh, 19, is a registered Democrat, a change from her independent status when she lived in Illinois. With social aspects Im more Democratic, said Ms. Billeh, who is studying psychology. When it comes to the economy Im more Republican. Most independents are not as strictly independent as the name suggests. The Pew study found that close to half of registered independents lean Democratic and 40 percent lean Republican. Sometimes the best person for the job does not necessarily have a label, said Nayda Carmona, 48, a registered independent and a Spanish, English and French teacher. Now in my heart there are certain things from the Democratic party that I will always hold dear. Thats who I am.VOTEFrom page 1 51,832 34,946 34,988 176,227 116,838 129,359 95,028 43,452 48,838 235,431 359,112 248,389 Charlotte Lee Collier Palm BeachCharlotte Lee Collier Palm Beach Republican Democrat Independent* In 2015, for the first time, independent voters surpassed those of Democrats in Lee and Collier counties.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 24-30, 2016 NEWS A9 Many are encouraged to sign up to vote when they get a drivers license under the federal motor voter rule, and dont choose a party affiliation because theyre not interested in participating in elections, Mr. Vancore pointed out. He estimates 22 percent of independents are nonvoters. But not voting is a choice, too. Some might argue a valid one. In any case, many analysts suggest, the future of independent voters belongs to the young. You get the Millennials, the majority of them are not choosing a political party preference, said Dan Howle, chair of the board of the Independent Voter Project in California. And its part of the culture. You know, younger people these days, they dont join organizations. The huge number of places where you can get information through the Internet, its changed the culture. Weve done focus group after focus group and poll after poll and young people are just not joining organizations. A young persons idea of joining something is signing up for Instagram. So the notion of joining a political party doesnt register with them. Theyre all across the board on issues. They dont fit into a political party frame of reference. They just dont fit in that.Closed primaryEven as independents begin to outnumber major party voters in many areas, they dont enjoy equal voting rights because Florida is one of 15 states with closed primaries. Only those registered as a Republican or Democrat can vote in most state and federal primary election contests, which can decide the winner of a general election. The Independent Voter Project considers Florida one of 15 states with closed primaries, although the rules vary from state to state with some offering semi-open or other types of primaries. The Project is a nationwide grassroots effort to support the switch to open primaries in all states so that all voters can vote in elections that matter to them and a candidates party doesnt dictate who can vote for them. The political parties are in control of the election process and its wrong, said Mr. Howle. Were trying on a stateby-state basis to take that power away from the political parties. The Florida Legislature has shown little interest in such a rule. Tallahassee attorney Glenn Burhans Jr. is leading a petition drive to put an open primary rule on the ballot in 2018 instead. He points out that all taxpayers, not just major party voters, fund primaries. Our proposal doesnt take away the abilities of (political parties) to nominate their own candidates, he said. The fundamental premise is that taxpayer-funded primaries will be open to all registered voters. In closed primaries for Florida legislative seats in Tallahassee as well as Washington, he said, candidates are encouraged to take more extreme views to appeal to an increasingly small electorate that doesnt include independents. In open primaries, They no longer have to fear being primaried from the extreme wings of either party, he argues. When freed from that constraint, they can actually focus on getting things done and cooperating with each other. Voters can get around the rule by switching to a major party in advance of the primary. Thats common, said Vicki Collins, public information officer for the Lee County Supervisor of Elections. And then people will change right back to (no-party affiliation). In the first few weeks of February, thousands of Florida voters switched from independent to a major party in advance of the presidential preference primary held on March 15. To be forced to associate with a party just so you can have your vote count makes no sense, Mr. Burhans said. A Fort Myers pastry chef and lifelong independent, Alex Molnar, 47, followed the potential presidential candidates closely and vetted them based on their record of service and voting. He would have picked Bernie Sanders in the presidential primary on March 15. Everyone should be able to vote at every election and not allowing me to vote in the primary is against my rights, said Mr. Molnar. And I think that should be illegal. MIKE FOCUS / SHUTTERSTOCK.COMPresident Barack Obama giving a speech to a large crowd in Seminole. The independent voters accounted for 50 percent of those voting for the president in 2012. SHUTTERSTOCK.COMIndependents are not allowed to vote during the Florida primaries, even though many might have voted for candidates they are dr awn to. Although Mr. Trump is a Republican and Mr. Sanders a Democrat, theyre arguably the closest thing to independent candidates on the national stage.

Mr. Aung will discuss A Southeast Asian Region Without Mangroves? Experiences, Issues, Conservation and Management of Mangroves in Myanmar (Burma). The aerial extent of mangroves in the Southeast Asian region, home to the worlds largest area of mangroves, has been declining at an alarming rate. Mr. Aung, who is the assistant director for the Myanmar Department Ministry of Environmental Conservation and Forestry, will discuss the catastrophic events known as the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami and the 2008 Cyclone Nargis in Myanmar/Burma and how they have highlighted the value and role of mangroves and encouraged the region to pay closer attention to mangrove conservation and restoration.

Stay off the Second Chance sandbar until SeptemberRookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, in cooperation with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Audubon Florida, has closed the emergent sandbar 1 mile southeast of Cape Romano. Known as Second Chance, the sandbar was designated as a Critical Wildlife Area by the FWC in November. It will remain closed through August. The area has been closed annually since 2001 to protect nesting habitat for least terns, black skimmers and Wilsons plovers. This is the first year the CWA rules are in place prohibiting vessels, in addition to people and dogs, from visiting the sandbar during summer nesting season. Protecting Floridas wildlife and natural resources is our first priority, Keith Laakkonen, director of the Rookey Bay reserve, said. Taking steps to protect this habitat during the nesting season will increase the likelihood of successful breeding and help preserve threatened Florida species such as the least tern. The least tern is listed as a threatened species in Florida, and black skimmers are listed as a species of special concern.

Offer Expires 3/31/16 a captured male python, is credited for the recent discovery and removal of pythons in Collier County, made possible through the use of radio tagging. Captain Kirkland, a relatively small, nine-foot python, was tagged and released to rural parts of Collier County, where he was soon tracked to a large batch of both male and female pythons. Tracking efforts are led in partnership with Dr. Jeffrey Noble of Saint Francis Animal Hospital, who surgically implants radio tags within captured pythons that are then released into the wild. A total of 15 adult pythons are currently under surveillance by radio tag, leading researchers to more pythons and enabling the team to gain a better understanding of their movement patterns. The ecological impact of removing so many adult pythons from a relatively small area of Collier County can only be positive for our native wildlife, said Ian Bartoszek, staff biologist at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. We need to utilize all tools available and develop additional techniques to capture and remove Burmese pythons in Florida. The teams work includes foot and road surveys to better understand the range of the snakes; outreach efforts to educate land owners and land managers about pythons; mailings and billboard postings to raise awareness and gain information; removal of pythons across Southwest Florida; necropsies of collected pythons to obtain information about diet and reproductive activity; tracking pythons through radio telemetry to learn ecological habits; using radio-tagged pythons to find untagged pythons; and construction and testing of trapping methods. To report an invasive species sighting, call (888) IVE-GOT1 or report via the IveGot1 mobile app. For more information, see conservancy.org.

The Amelia Island Concours dElegance is one of the premier classic car events in the country, but dont expect the multimillion-dollar vehicles showcased here to be pretentious. This show is known for its exceptionally rare cars being presented with true Southern charm. After all, most prestigious events would not be as inviting to crowds without such favorites as the 1949 Buick Roadmaster convertible made famous in the 1988 film Rain Man. Theres a spirit of fun here that grabs the imagination of even the most seasoned automotive enthusiast. In fact, the Amelia Island show is known for creative classes and inviting the most captivating cars around. There was a category this year called Concepts Beyond Detroit that celebrated the individual style of those who had a dream and hand tools in the garage. With the same personal willpower, but with much better financial backing, was the Phantom Corsair a complete custom-build based on a Cord 810. An heir to the Heinz condiment family fortune designed it, and the coupe was so futuristic it was featured in a David O. Selznick film. The car had potential to be the ultimate small-batch luxury car of the 1930s, but Rust Heinzs untimely death sealed this cars fate as a solo act. Sometimes the person is just as important to the legend as the car. Janis Joplin might have been famous for praying for a Mercedes-Benz, but she actually owned a 1968 Porsche 356 Cabriolet, painted in a psychedelic motif. Still, this show is more than celebrity connections. Classic cars and Florida have a closely linked history beyond the fact that we are a tropical playground for the wealthy. Automotive companies from around the world have sent their best to the track in Sebring and the beaches of Daytona be tried under the fire of competition. So being a part of this concours is often about remembering what the car has done on our soil. There is even the case of an AustinHealey Sprite prototype racer car. It competed briefly in the 1964 12 Hours of Sebring race before breaking down and bowing out of the race. This car disappeared from view and was a ghost in the automotive community for over half a century. But this year it re-debuted at Amelia Island with only 800 miles on the odometer and the same tires that it raced on at Sebring. Each vehicles unique story is only part of the equation. The top awards here are prestigious, and they reflect the society and competition elements that make up Floridas vintage vehicle heritage. The Concours dElegance award went to a 1930 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Town Car with a body by the American company Brewster. The Concours de Sport winner was a 1952 Peg aso Z-102 BS 2.5 Cupula Coupe that was one of two ever produced and was once confiscated from Rafael El Jefe Trujillo, a dictator of Dominican Republic. So even the winners have a bit of trivia and intrigue attached to them. Thats the true fun of the Amelia Island Concours dElegance. Collectors might be locked in a heated battle for awards, but from a spectators point of view, this is one of the best places to understand that a cars history is much more than just paint and metal. p c h f f mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com A vintage MG police car Janis Joplins Porsche A 1929 Packard An Auburn Speedster for Hoover

Freedom Boat Club is very much aware of the fast-changing demographic shifts through-out North America and has responded with a dedicated outreach program to embrace all ethnicities. Here in SW Florida, we have joined several of the Hispanic chambers and leadership alliancin many major cultural festivals and expos. Our goal is to introduce the boating lifestyle to those in growing ethnic communities who may be unaware of the boat club concept and its many advantages. Also, all of our documents have been translated to Spanish and our website now has a page En Espaol. Hispanic families such as my own enjoy spending time together. We provide a fun, recreational alternative for the whole family at an affordable cost of entry. Freedom Boat Club also provides free unlimited boat training by licensed U.S. Coast Guard captains and access to 425+ late model fishing boats, pontoons, deckboats, bowriders and a sampling of sailboats and kayaks. I speak at community events about our multicultural initiative and am happy to share the exciting news about Freedom Boat Club! 877-804-0402 StMatthewsHouse.org (239) 774-0500Rep. Kathleen Passidomo Florida House of Representatives I, like so many of my friends and neighbors, knew that St. Matthews House ran a homeless shelter and a food kitchen, but I truly didnt understand or appreciate until I was elected to the legislature that the organizations main focus is to provide counseling and training to men and women so that they are able to re-enter the workforce and become productive members of the community. St. Matthews House even guarantees every person in the Justins Place Recovery Program a part-time job before they graduate!

Neuroscience and Spine Associates Of ces in Naples and Ft. Myers(239) 649-1662 R. Rick Bhasin, MD, FAANSBoard Certi ed Neurosurgeon Clinical Af liation, Department of Neurosurgery University of Florida NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERDDistributed by Universal Press SyndicateGlaciers and genderUniversity of Oregon professor Mark Carey produced a 10,300-word journal article in January proposing a new sensitivity to Earths melting icecaps: a feminist glaciology framework to generate robust analysis of gender, power and epistemologies with a goal of more just and equitable human-ice interactions. The jargonized, densely worded tract suggests that melting icecaps can be properly understood only with more input from female scientists since, somehow, research so far disproportionately emphasizes climate changes impact on males. (The New York Post reported that the paper was funded by a National Science Foundation grant of $412,930.)ChutzpahTrying to put (as a critic charged) lipstick on a pig, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder boasted in March that the lead-inthe-water crisis plaguing the city of Flint for months now had actually spurred job growth. Though Snyder has been heavily criticized for tight-fisted budgeting that enabled the crisis, 81 temporary workers have been recently hired to hand out bottled water so that residents would not have to hydrate themselves with poisoned municipal water.Cant possibly be true A senior federal administrative law judge recently claimed (and then, for good measure, repeated and emphasized) that, in his experience, -year-olds and 4-year-olds do not need the help of lawyers to advocate for them in immigration proceedings. Teaching those kids their rights, Judge Jack Weil said, takes a lot of time and a lot of patience, but there is no need for government to provide lawyers. (Weil, a U.S. Department of Justice employee, was contesting an American Civil Liberties Union claim at a recent deposition in an immigration case in Seattle.) Homeless people frequently store their few possessions in commandeered shopping carts, but New Yorker Sonia Gonzalez, 60, became a legend recently on Manhattans West Side by maneuvering a stunning, block-long assemblage of more than 20 carts worth of possessions along the sidewalks. Among the contents: an air conditioner, a laundry hamper, shower curtain rods, a wire shelving unit, wooden pallets, suitcases and, of course, bottles and cans. She moved along by pushing carts two or three at a time, a few feet at a time, blocking entrances to stores in the process. (The day after a New York Post story on Gonzalezs caravan, Mayor DiBlasio ordered city workers to junk everything not essential, leaving her with about one carts worth.)Questionable judgmentsMexicos latest female accessorizing craze is shellacking tiny dead scorpions onto fingernails, using the second-most venomous species of the arachnid, selling briskly at the Miss Unas parlor in Durango. In fact, while in town (according to a London Daily Mail dispatch from Durango), shoppers may check out the Raices restaurant, which pioneered tacos filled with still-wriggling scorpions (that had been soaked in surgical alcohol to neutralize the venom).Latest religious messagesPower of Prayer: (1) Businessman Induvalu Suresh cut off, and donated, the little finger of his left hand recently at the Hindu pilgrimage site Tirupati, India, as homage to the gods for the granting of bail to prominent India leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, who are charged with fraudulent business practices in a case heavily politically weighted. (2) In October, a regional court in Nizhegorodsky, Russia, decided that the Russian Orthodox Church could pay off part of a debt for its new boiler spiritually. According to an Associated Press dispatch from Moscow, the church can settle the remaining debt, equivalent to $6,585, to the boiler company by paying $2,525 in rubles and the remainder by prayer.Awesome In a suburb of Newcastle, Australia, in February, workers using a crane extracted a 1-ton snake-like mass of sewage (mostly wet wipes unwisely flushed down toilets) from an underground pipe with the gummed-together sludge reaching a height of more than 20 feet when the crane finally yanked the whole thing up. Said a representative of the water company, (Y)oull flush the toilet, and the wet wipe will disappear, and you think (wrongly) its therefore flushable. Making Canada Great Again: Syrian refugees arriving at the airport in Vancouver, British Columbia, have been warmly greeted personally in a video by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, but in March some were inadvertently booked into the same hotel that was hosting the fifth annual VancouFur convention of furries. Anthropomorphic, full-suited tigers, dogs, bears, foxes, etc., roamed the hotel, leading Londons The Independentto report that the child refugees loved every minute, playing with the furries and posing for pictures.Leading economic indicatorsThe Cash Economy: Chinas Peoples Daily reported in January that Mr. Cai Zhanjiang (described as tuhao, or uncultured but still well-off) had just purchased a new truck from a dealer by driving another truck to the showroom and unloading 100,000 renminbi (about $15,300 U.S.) entirely in small bills a stash weighing about a half-ton. Shanghaiist.com also noted a story from June 2015 in which a man (likely also tuhao) bought a new vehicle with the equivalent of $104,670 almost all in coins.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 24-30, 2016 A23 Is Gum Disease Linked with Alzheimers?It may seem improbable, but more than one study has linked gum disease with impaired cognitive function and Alzheimers disease. First, NYU researchers uncovered a link between gum in ammation and Alzheimers disease a er examining two decades of health records. en, British researchers identi ed a bacterium, called Porphyromonas gingivalis, in brain samples of people who had Alzheimers disease. Interestingly enough, follow-up research showed that P. gingivalis was also usually associated with chronic gum disease. e motile (capable of motion), gum-diseasecausing bacteria can travel through the bloodstream or from nerve roots in the teeth directly to the brain through nerve pathways.

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago tested whether a community-based intervention focused on Latin dancing could benefit 54 Spanish-speaking adults (about 65 years old, 80 percent Mexican female) who were not very physically active. Participants were randomly assigned to either participate in a dance program twice a week for four months or to attend a health education program. All participants completed questionnaires about their leisure time physical activity and a 400-meter walk test at the start and end of the study. After four months of twice-weekly Latin dancing, researchers found: Dancers walked faster and were more physically active during their leisure time than before they started dancing. Dancers completed a 400-meter walk in just under 392 seconds compared with almost 430 seconds at the start of the study. Leisure physical activity rose from 650 minutes to nearly a total of 818 minutes per week. Those in the health education classes had smaller improvements in their fitness. They finished the 400-meter walk in about 409 seconds at the end of the study compared with 419 seconds four months earlier; total time spent on weekly leisure physical activity increased from 522 minutes to 628 minutes over the course of the study. Called BAILAMOS, the dance program is a culturally tailored, community-based lifestyle intervention developed at UIChicago by David Marquez and Miguel Mendez. It includes four dance styles merengue, bachata, cha cha cha and salsa led by a dance instructor and with more complex choreography as the program progresses. Increasing physical activity is a key goal of the AHA, which recommends that all adults get a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate physical activity or at least 75 minutes of vigorous physical activity (or a combination of both) each week. Regular physical activity has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and complications associated with advancing age. It also improves balance and mobility and helps reduce stress. Scaling up such a culturally attuned and what appears to be fun intervention could have significant public health effects, Priscilla Vasquez, the studys lead author, says. There are many barriers older Latino adults face, Ms. Vasquez says. As they are busy with caregiving and other responsibilities, physical activity often takes a back seat. In addition, opportunities for physical activity arent often available. This program engaged them on many levels, physically, culturally and emotionally. Anecdotally, Ive heard participants say attending dance class is their stress relief. They also interact with others and build community. This impacts their physical as well as emotional health and wellbeing. Dancing could have wider health implications, too. Ms. Vasquez says the research team is interested in testing whether BAILAMOS can help older Latinos already experiencing mild cognitive impairment. We are interested in using magnetic resonance imaging to see if dancing positively affects their brains, she says. The study is funded by the Alzheimers Association and the UI-Chicago Midwest Roybal Center for Health Promotion and Translation.

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, founders of the Naples Winter Wine Festival, is also returning this year as 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, who teaches about mental health conditions and disabilities in her work as a professor in special education, will discuss her journey, and her daughter Lineas journey, with mental illness in hopes of ending the stigma for those who are trying to cope with mental health conditions. 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. Son and mother will share the story, stressing the need for family support, of their journey to recovery while stressing the need for family support. 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. It started with Dans mood swings and struggles in school and progressed into clinical depression. He experienced dual episodes symptoms of depression and mania at the same time. 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. They were ultimately successful and 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 be joined by the following panelists for a discussion: 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 co-chairing the symposium. Mr. Budd is also a director of the National Alliance on Mental Illness-Collier County and of Drug Free Collier. Ms. Schneider, a psychologist, is a past president of the World Federation for Mental Health and has served on the National Institute of Mental Health Advisory Council. Ms. Paschall is a speech professor at Florida Southwestern State College.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.

A30 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 24-30, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY PATRICK M. FLAHARTY, MDTrust Your Face To Experience (239.415.7576Naples location!NEW NOW WELCOMING NEW PATIENTS PET TALESOveruse of antibiotics can cause big problems for your pet BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickWhats the first thing you do when youre feeling sick or your pet has diarrhea? Is it to ask your doctor or the veterinarian to prescribe antibiotics to knock down whatever it is quickly? Thats a common request in human and veterinary medicine, but its not necessarily the right one. From urinary tract infections to dental disease, antibiotics seem to be the easy answer, but their overuse in animals and humans is creating resistant bacteria. Instead of being killed off by the drugs, bacteria continue to multiply, becoming stronger than ever. That makes them ever more difficult to treat. And oftentimes, theyre not even necessary. Lots of ailments that we see are caused by viruses, which antibiotics wont do anything for, says veterinarian Tony Johnson, an emergency and critical-care specialist. Lots of ailments that we see are going to go away on their own without antibiotics. We prescribe antibiotics for things that theres absolutely no need for. If a dog gets hit by a car and doesnt have a mark on it, he doesnt need antibiotics. If a dog has a cut less than the size of a dime, itll heal on its own; he doesnt need antibiotics. Veterinarians are as guilty of this as the general public. A review of antibiotic use in dogs, published in June 2011 in the Journal of Small Animal Practice, found that there was a confirmed infection in only 17 percent of the prescriptions. In 45 percent, infection was suspected; for instance, the patient had an open wound or discharge from the eyes or nose. In 38 percent, there was no documented evidence of infection. In those cases, the antibiotics were often given for preventive reasons, such as after surgery. A better practice is to culture the skin, blood, urine or other tissue to confirm an infection and pinpoint the type of bacteria causing it. That allows the most appropriate antibiotic to be prescribed. If we see a big, infected wound or if we have a dog with pneumonia, we can culture that, find out what the bug is and what antibiotic will specifically target it, as opposed to using an overly broadspectrum antibiotic that isnt needed, Dr. Johnson says. But cultures can be expensive. While the cost of a culture is often worth it, not everyone is willing or able to pay for it. That leaves veterinarians guessing at the best way to proceed. If they guess incorrectly, the dog or cat is in discomfort longer than necessary, and they are potentially contributing to the problem of bacterial resistance to antibiotics. Whats the answer? The World Health Organization and other institutions are calling for antibiotic stewardship: using the drugs only in cases with a definite diagnosis, ruling out viral and fungal infections, parasites and other conditions that dont respond to antimicrobial therapies. For instance, antimicrobials arent indicated for viral upper respiratory infections such as feline herpesvirus or canine influenza unless they are accompanied by secondary bacterial infections. Most cases of feline lower urinary tract disease dont involve bacterial infection. Treatments such as a change in diet or stress relief techniques are more effective. And some wounds may simply require cleaning with a topical antiseptic solution. If your dog or cat or child is not in pain and its not life-threatening, let their body deal with it, whatever it is, Dr. Johnson says. Antibiotics are a very powerful tool, and they save lives, so you dont want to not use them when necessary, but the main thing to understand is that they are not a cure-all.

You dont get to make that one phone call. Youre in without hope of bail. And you dont get much info on why you were locked up in the first place. Not only that, its sort of like solitary confinement or at least what Id imagine solitary confinement to be. Its very, very quiet. How I ended up as a Facebook felon is rather complicated, but here goes. When Im not happily penning this column, I often work at local theaters as an actor and a director. And when I do, I use my personal Facebook page to get my 2,037 friends to see the shows Im involved with and to support local theater. The latest show I directed, Bad Jews by Joshua Harmon at Laboratory Theater of Florida, is a new comedy thats been performed in New York City, London and Melbourne, Australia, among other cities around the world. A couple of nights after opening weekend, I posted a photo from the show and reminded folks to buy their tickets. Then I went to bed. The next morning I woke up and, per usual, grabbed my iPhone from the nightstand to check my texts, emails and, of course, Facebook. But when I got there, there was a message on my screen from Big Brother er, I mean The Powers That Be at Facebook telling me that my Bad Jews post had been removed because the name of the play had been reported as bullying and/or harassment and that I would be temporarily blocked for 12 hours. Huh? I soon heard from the artistic director at Lab Theater that her personal page had been blocked, too, along with the company Facebook page. So, at least I wasnt alone in my virtual orange jumpsuit. Alas, there was no way to reach the Book of Face and plead my case, so I assumed it was a misunderstanding, accepted my sentence and tried not to feel like a social media law breaker. Interestingly, when youre in Facebook jail, you can still see your newsfeed; you just cant participate. So, when a friend posted a super cute picture of her newborn granddaughter, I commented, Shes precious! Congratulations! only to get another message from the Facebook warden reminding me that I was still blocked and that my sentence was now for 12 more hours. Im still not sure if it meant that should I continue to attempt to post, more time would be added to my sentence, but since I didnt want to anger my captors, I sat on my hands. As it turned out, I was actually in Facebook lock-up for 24 hours, and while I still maintain my innocence, I will say that my time in the hoosegow yielded some self-discovery. First and foremost, Im on Facebook way too much; it shouldnt be the first thing I check in the morning before I even get out of bed. Also, Im far too generous with my likes. When I was blocked from liking, I realized how habitual my liking had become. If a friend posted a photo of her meal, I liked it; same goes for her cousins graduation photos and pictures of her visit to Disney World. I mean, I had even liked a friends new pedicure. Furthermore, when I was prevented from posting, I wasnt compelled to check in every place I went or to announce random thoughts I was having to my 2,000-some Facebook friends (1,887 of whom I barely know). When I was released from the Facebook slammer, there was no fanfare. I woke up the next day, grabbed my iPhone and started scrolling through my newsfeed out of habit. When the picture of my friends brand new baby granddaughter popped up again, I deemed it definitely worth liking and took a chance. My like stuck. Whew. While Im not exactly a hardened criminal, I was relieved to learn that I could live without Facebook at least for 24 hours.

Dont let your job search ride on a piece of paper, advises Peter Studner, the author of Super Job Search IV: The Complete Manual for Job Seekers & Career Changers. Thats why you should put more effort into preparing for interviews than you do into any other part of your job search campaign. While there are no perfect answers, Mr. Studner says some thought and discussion about potentially tricky interview subjects can help you avoid disaster. Here are 15 of the 79 interview questions he reviews in his book: What salary are you looking for?

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 24-30, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY The Show www.bobharden.comNews and commentary you can use to help you enjoy life on the Paradise Coast.Streamed live, Monday-Friday, 7-8 a.m. The show is archived for your listening convenience. Brought to you in part by like us on facebooksion, try returning the focus back to the interviewer: Its hard to discuss salary without knowing more about the job or responsibilities. Or, if you are discussing a specific job: What is your range? Then relate your experience to the salary range without being precise: I think my experience would put me near the high end of your range, dont you? What were you making in your last job? If at all possible, do not volunteer information about your past salary. A diplomatic way to put the salary question aside is to reply, I was well compensated in my previous company but really do not wish to prejudice myself here by being too high or low. Can we delay this until after weve looked at all the aspects of your current need? Have you ever been fired? If the answer is yes, have a good explanation worked out and tested with friends. For instance: We had a change in general managers, and although I had been doing a great job as you can see from my accomplishments, I was let go for one of his former associates. Or: The company decided to close down its California operation and offered me a job in Chicago. We would like to stay in this area so thats why Im looking around. What did you think of your last supervisor? Whatever your true feelings might be, stay positive. This is not the time or place to list your boss shortcomings or frustrating behaviors. Mr. Studner suggests responses like: She was the kind of person I could learn from. Or: We were able to communicate well and things got done quickly. What is your greatest strength? Before interviewing, reflect on your personal strengths and make a list of them (e.g., natural number sense, able to multitask, good with people, able to teach others). Then tie each of them to a professional accomplishment. During the interview, conclude your response by asking the interviewer if this is the kind of quality that would help his or her company, Mr. Studner suggests. What is your greatest weakness? As with your strengths, prepare a list of weaknesses beforehand. This time, tie each weakness back to what could also be considered a strength. For example: I like to get things done. Sometimes I get impatient, but Im getting a handle on it. What do you not like to do? This is a loaded question. A positive reply might be: Im the kind of person who does whatever is necessary to get the job done. When I do run into something disagreeable, I try to do it first and get it behind me. I have no particular dislikes. How would your boss, coworkers and subordinates describe you? Be ready to give some examples of the kind of team player you are. If you are not into office politics and have harbored good relationships at work, mention it. And remember that the interviewer may ask your references the same question, Mr. Studner notes. He strongly suggests meeting with your references before the interview stage in order to talk through your career goals and how the reference can best support them. Why do you want to work for our company? Your reply could be based on the companys reputation for products, management, international scope, technology, or as a nice place to work and grow. The most important thing is to avoid generic answers, Mr. Studner says. Know their products, policies and potential for you. What has been your biggest failure? Discuss this question with friends, mentors and possibly your references before the interview. If at all possible, think of something you were later able to correct. Then the story isnt just about a failure, but also about a learning experience. How do you feel about the progress you made in your last position? Rather than discuss your feelings, per se, stress your accomplishments, Mr. Studner says. Such a response will communicate great information about your value as an employee while still conveying positive feelings about your progress. Did you have any frustrations in your past job? Frustrations are a normal part of any job, and interviewers know this so dont claim you didnt have any. Relate some of the bottlenecks you experienced, but more important, indicate what you did to overcome them, Mr. Studner suggests. How long do you think it would be before you could make a contribution to our company? Dont be in a hurry when providing an answer to this question. There normally is a period of transition before a new hire learns the ropes. You might say, If the transition goes according to plan, I would guess relatively soon. What would you expect? Dont you feel that you are overqualified for the position? Ouch! If you have a lot of experience and the company is thinking of hiring a younger person, you might get this kind of query. A good answer is: I imagine my experience would make me more valuable sooner. How do you take criticism? Most people have problems taking criticism. If the criticism is part of a formal evaluation program where you can learn and impr ove, that is f ine. I would welcome the opportunity to learn how to do my job better. Do you have a formal program for employee evaluation?About the author Mr. Studner is a master career counselor and former chief executive and board member of companies in the United States, France and Great Britain. He has helped thousands of people with their career transitions and also trains other career professionals. Even though you likely will not be asked all of the specific question he poses in his book, he says, knowing how you want to answer them will ensure that youre prepared to discuss a wide variety of topics that might come up.

MONEY & INVESTINGMove by the Fed will likely lead to more market volatilityOne of the reasons the Federal Reserve has such a difficult job is that the market expects it to always behave in two polar opposite ways. On one hand, it wants the Fed to telegraph its moves way in advance and then not stray from that path. The market detests Central Bank surprises. But on the other hand, the market reacts violently when it feels the Federal Reserve is not reactive to changes in economic conditions or market moves. How can you operate with both of these paradigms? Last week the Fed decided to change course on a critical policy it set years ago, and the market reaction was fierce. What was this change and how will it affect markets going forward? Fed Chair Janet Yellens favorite terms to use when explaining how the Fed will behave has always been data dependent. This means that economic and market data should dictate Federal Reserve policy moves and behaviors. So last year when all the information indicated that the economy was on solid footing, the Fed stated that it would start to raise rates to more normalized levels. And in December, it finally did so. Just as importantly, Yellen indicated that the Fed would continue to increase short-term rates in 2016 if economic data continued to be positive. Most analysts believed that this meant that the Fed would raise rates four times this year or once every other meeting. And 2016 saw continued positive data come out of the U.S, economy. Employment data was positive, wage growth was evident and the housing market still shows significant strength. Yet last week the Fed surprised everyone by announcing that the Central Bank would be more cautious in raising rates going forward and anticipated it would only increase its benchmark interest rate twice in 2016 and twice again in 2017. Yellen cited global and financial developments for its change in policy. The market was stunned and short-term rates plummeted with one of the largest rate moves since the financial crisis. The dollars value fell significantly against most other currencies as well. Most analysts believe that the Fed changed its stance on rate movements for two reasons. First, they were concerned that by continuing to raise rates while almost every other country in the world was cutting its rates (sometimes into negative territory) it would harm the U.S. in the long run. The dollar would just be too strong and U.S. exporting companies would not be able to compete in the global market. Second, investors believed that the Fed was reacting to the violent market swings in January and February, which saw huge losses in most equity markets. They believed that the Fed was trying to stabilize markets and give them a little tailwind. In the short term, the Fed moves last week will continue to punish savers. Interest rates on savings accounts and bank CDs will remain at close to zero levels. The Fed shift also breathed new life into the bond market which many predicted would be decimated in 2016 and 2017 as rates started to rise. Stock markets, too, should be helped, as low rates will continue to fuel stock buybacks and low debt expense. In addition, a lower dollar will aid U.S. companies export growth. And finally, a continuation of very low rates will boost gold prices as investors buy inflation protection. But in the long run, the U.S. Central Banks policy change will add a large amount of uncertainty to the financial markets. If the Fed is not U.S. economic data dependent any more, what information will guide its rate decisions going forward? Will the Fed take market movements or international data into account when reaching a decision? How can analysts predict future movements? All of these questions will undoubtedly lead to more market volatility going forward. The Fed certainly has its work cut out for it in the weeks and months ahead.

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 24-30, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY I trace my roots back to a starch, soap and candle company founded in New York City in 1806. I introduced toothpaste in jars in 1873 and in collapsible tubes in 1896. Today Im a global consumer product giant, selling brands such as Softsoap, Irish Spring, Speed Stick, Murphy Oil Soap, Hills, Ajax, Afta, Suavitel, Toms of Maine and Fabuloso in more than 200 countries and territories. I rake in $16 billion annually and employ more than 35,000 people, and my stock has grown by an annual average of 12 percent over the past 20 years. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. THE MOTLEY FOOLTo Educate, Amuse & Enrich Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest Investment The Motley Fool Take Name That Company Last weeks trivia answer Write to Us! Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to Fool@fool.com or via regular mail c/o Florida Weekly, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Inflation Is Not One-Size-Fits-AllIts smart to keep an eye on inflation levels, as inflation can shrink the value of your nest egg over time. But be careful a published inflation rate may not quite represent the inflation youre experiencing.Inflation has averaged about 3 to 4 percent annually over the past century, though it has occasionally been in the double digits and occasionally negative. But thats an average. In any given year, the price of cable television, college tuition and milk may rise, while prices for gasoline, clothing and peanut butter might fall. How that all affects you depends on your personal spending. The most common measure of inflation is the urban (i.e., non-farmer, nonmilitary, non-institutionalized) Consumer Price Index (CPI), which measures, year by year, the cost of a basket of common goods and services that we Americans purchase, such as food, clothing, housing, medical care, energy and so on. (Some versions of the CPI exclude food and energy prices, as they can be extra-volatile.) The food at home category recently made up about 8 percent of the basket, and food away from home about 6 percent. If youre someone who rarely cooks at home and usually dines out, this is an imperfect reflection of your lifestyle. Housing makes up 42 percent of the basket, but if your home is paid off or youre living in your parents basement, your personal profile is vastly different. (Housing prices and trends also vary widely across the country.) Medical care is 8 percent of the basket, but you may spend much more or less than that percentage of your income on that category. Private transportation is 14 percent, but if you own no car and take a bus to work, that category doesnt affect you too much. Get the picture? Its interesting and informative to follow the changing inflation rate over time, but remember that it doesnt necessarily reflect the inflation that each of us faces. You might instead figure out your own inflation rate by tracking your actual expenses and how they fluctuate over time. A Fatal FallMy dumbest investment was putting money in Canadian Bre-X Minerals, a goldmining company. Some established goldmining companies were interested in it, so I figured if it was good enough for them to take seriously, I could, too. T., onlineThe Fool Responds: Bre-Xs story is a disastrous cautionary tale for all investors. Back in the early 1990s, after drilling for gold in Borneo, the company reported finding a major gold deposit. Its stock soared and more investors jumped in; its shares, which had debuted at less than a dollar apiece, skyrocketed at one point to more than $250. Big-name companies were associating with Bre-X, lending it more credibility indeed, J.P. Morgan & Co. was advising it. Well, eventually, the truth came out. When the American mining company Freeport-McMoRan was considering doing business with Bre-X, it did some due diligence. It turned out that Bre-Xs management had been engaging in fraud, having planted gold for others to verify. Shares plunged in short order, wiping out many investors. As the truth was coming out, the companys chief geologist fell to his death from a helicopter, with many suspecting that he did so intentionally. Bre-X serves to remind us that some companies can be engaged in fraud, and that it can be safer to stick to established, proven companies with track records of growing revenue and earnings. Be wary of too-good-to-be-true stories. Plugged InInvestors seeking dividends and growth should consider the diversified industrial manufacturer Emerson Electric (NYSE: EMR). Founded way back in 1890, the company makes everything from valves, actuators and regulators to entire alternators, motors and even drives plus the software to run them all. In an economy thats continually becoming more electric (even our cars), its future is promising.The company has five key business divisions Process Management, Industrial Automation, Network Power, Climate Technologies, and Commercial & Residential Solutions serving the industrial, commercial and consumer markets. Its operations in the oil and gas industry (such as servicing reservoirs and refineries) have been hurt by low prices for both, with near-term prospects not exciting. Still, even in these challenging years, its profit margins have not shrunk much, and its generating more than $1 billion in annual free cash flow.At a recent investor conference, management outlined plans to shed Emersons network power segment and sell its motors and drives, power generation and storage businesses, in order to focus on faster-growing and higher-profit-margin businesses.Then theres Emersons dividend, which recently yielded 3.7 percent. It has been increased by an annual average of 7 percent over the past five years and has plenty of room for further hikes. The company has been rewarding shareholders via share buybacks, too. (The Motley Fool has recommended Emerson Electric.) I trace my roots back to the 1969 founding of the DMG real estate investment trust. I was one of the first North American companies to embrace the Japanese principles of kaizen, which support continuous improvement. Among many other activities, my microscopes reveal life at 100 nanometers in three dimensions, my dental diagnostics spot decay as it forms, my disinfection technologies treat billions of gallons of water daily, and my transaction systems offer consumers speed and security. I rake in more than $20 billion annually, and Im named after a tributary of Montanas Flathead River. Who am I? (Answer: Danaher) Fund Investing DiscrepancyQCan I avoid making dumb investing mistakes if I stick with mutual funds instead of stocks? H.C., Salisbury, MarylandANot necessarily. You need to be sure to choose solid funds, with low fees and smart managers or just opt for inexpensive broadmarket index funds, such as ones that track the S&P 500. Once youre invested in some good funds for the long term, stay the course. Too many investors panic when the market heads south, selling not only stocks but also their mutual fund shares.According to data from Dalbar and Lipper, the average stock-holding mutual fund delivered an annualized return of 9.1 percent from 1995 to 2014, but the average shareholder of such funds earned only 5.2 percent on average per year. Why the big difference? Because investors succumbed to emotions such as fear instead of sticking with their investment plan and strategy.Over 20 years, a $10,000 investment would grow to $27,500 at 5.2 percent annually, but at an annual growth rate of 9.1 percent, it would reach a whopping $57,000. Being impatient or fearful can be very costly.***QWhats a money market fund? T.R., Lima, OhioASimilar to a money market account (but not carrying FDIC insurance), its a mutual fund invested in short-term, high-quality investments such as Treasury bills, short-term commercial debt and certificates of deposit (CDs). Its viewed as relatively safe, with yields that vary according to short-term interest rates and typically exceed rates offered by standard bank accounts. Money market fund yields are usually well below the stock markets historical average annual return of close to 10 percent. Theyre great for short-term savings, but ill-suited for long-term investments, as your money wont grow very quickly. Want more information about stocks?

TURNKEY FURNISHED!Numbers point to market moving toward balanceIncreases in inventory for single-family and condominium residences in February indicate a trend toward a more balanced market, according to broker analysts who reviewed the February 2016 market report recently released by the Naples Area Board of Realtors. NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). Cindy Carroll of the real estate appraisal and consultancy firm Carroll & Carroll explains that the relationship between supply and demand is determined by dividing the number of active listings by the number of closed sales in the prior 12 months; the result is expressed in months or years of supply. Many economists conclude a balanced market is one offering six months of inventory. Due to the seasonality of the Naples market, however, Ms. Carroll believes 12 months of supply signals a balanced market. After two years of rapid sales, it looks like the Naples area real estate market is going through a natural correction process to a balanced market, Rick Fioretti, NABOR president and broker associate with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Florida Realty, says, adding the February report showed 6.85 months of inventory in the Naples area. We would prefer to see 12 months of inventory to feel completely balanced, he adds.

B14 WEEK OF MARCH 24-30, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Hispanic ownership rate up for first time in 6 yearsAccording to a report released by the Hispanic Wealth Project and the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals, the Hispanic homeownership rate rose in 2015 for the first time since 2009. According to the State of Hispanic Homeownership Report, the Hispanic homeownership rate averaged 45.6 percent last year, up 0.2 percent from 2014. However, a comparison of year-toyear December numbers found that the rate surged from 44.5 percent in 2014 to 46.7 percent in 2015 the biggest oneyear gain in over a decade. Policymakers and the housing industry need to recognize that the face of homeownership in America has changed, and it is in everyones interest to ensure that these new consumers have access to relevant lending products, affordable housing stock, and culturally competent service providers in the coming years, says NAHREP President Joseph Nery. Meanwhile, The Latino community is massive, its ready to own, and its now, says Mortgage Bankers Association President and CEO David Stevens. The significance of Hispanics to housing and the economy will only grow, creating opportunity for all who focus on this vibrant, dynamic and impactful part of the U.S. economy.

B18 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MARCH 24-30, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Saturday 10 AM 5 PM Sunday 12 PM 3 PMHOME survey points to need for more single-family inventory NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSMore than three-quarters of surveyed households would purchase a singlefamily home if they were to buy in the next six months, and 79 percent of renters would choose to buy outside of an urban area, according to the second installment of the National Association of Realtors new quarterly consumer survey. The survey also found that confidence about now being a good time to buy is waning amongst renters, particularly in the West, where prices have solidly risen. In NARs first-quarter Housing Opportunities and Market Experience survey, respondents were asked about their confidence in the U.S. economy and various questions about their housing expectations and preferences, including a question on if they were to purchase a house in the next six months, what type of home and in what area would they choose to buy. The HOME survey data reveals an overwhelming consumer preference for single-family homes in suburban areas. Most current homeowners (85 percent) and 75 percent of renters said they would purchase a single-family home, while only 15 percent of homeowners and 21 percent of renters said they would buy in an urban area. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says the HOME findings call attention to the glaring need for more supply of single-family homes. The American Dream for most consumers is not a cramped, 500-squarefoot condo in the middle of the city, but instead a larger home within close proximity to the jobs and entertainment an urban area provides, he says. While this is not a new discovery, supply and demand imbalances and unhealthy levels of price growth in several metro areas have made buying an affordable home an onerous task for far too many first-time buyers and middle-class families. Mr. Yun says it is time for homebuilders to double their focus on constructing single-family homes. With millennials increasingly buying in the suburbs, tight inventory and affordability concerns will likely worsen without significant headways made in housing starts in relation to job creation. The latest NAR survey found that, compared to the December 2015 survey, the same share of homeowners (82 percent) but fewer renters (62 percent versus 68 percent last quarter) believe that now is a good time to buy. A high number of homeowners express that it is a good time to buy, a sentiment Mr. Yun says is no doubt being fueled by the $4.4 trillion in housing equity accumulation in the past three years. On the other hand, accelerating home prices and the perceived difficulty in obtaining a mortgage appears to be tugging at the confidence of renters, he adds. Overall, respondents over the age of 65, those living in the Midwest and those with incomes above $100,000 were the most optimistic about buying now. Among current homeowners, fewer (56 percent) believe it is a good time to sell compared to the fourth quarter of 2015 (61 percent). Amidst steep price increases and tight supply, respondents in the West were the most likely to think now is a good time to sell, while also being the least likely to think now is a good time to buy.About the U.S. economyAmong all households in the survey, less than half believe the economy is improving (48 percent), down from 50 percent in last quarters survey. Renters, those living in urban areas and respondents with lower incomes were the most optimistic. The HOME surveys monthly personal financial outlook index of all households has slightly dipped (to 58.1) since December (59.6), but is mostly unchanged from March 2015, reflecting stable confidence that respondents financial situation will be better in six months. Currently, renters, younger and lower income households and those living in urban areas are more optimistic about their future financial situation.Location, location, locationAcross all age groups, when asked about their future buying preferences, survey responses were closely tied to each generations typical lifestyle, with younger buyers being more likely to consider buying a single-family home. Not surprisingly, renters and younger buyers would for the most part purchase larger homes, whereas older buyers would purchase similar or smaller sized homes. Highlighting the apparent appetite for some older households to downsize and live in the city, respondents over the age of 65 were the most likely to consider a condo and nearly as likely as respondents under the age of 35 to consider purchasing in an urban area. Most respondents indicated their preference to stay in a similar area to their current living situation if they were to buy in the next six months. More than two-thirds of those living in rural areas and 75 percent of those living in suburban areas would buy in a similar area. Only those living in an urban area would be more likely to move elsewhere, with a suburban area within 20 miles of the city being the most frequent choice of urban buyers moving to another type of area.About the HOME surveyIn January through early March 2016, a sample of U.S. households was surveyed via random-digit dial, including half via cell phones and the other half via landlines. The survey was conducted by the survey research firm TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence. Each month approximately 900 qualified households responded to the survey. The data was compiled for this report and a total of 2,781 household responses are represented.NAR represents more than 1.1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

The report indicates a total of 5,577 single-family homes and condominiums in inventory in February 2016, which represented a 27 percent over the numbers in February 2015. Its just not meeting buyer demand yet, Mr. Jones said. Overall pending sales (homes under contract) declined 22 percent month over month to 993 in February 2016 from 1,280 in February 2015. Overall closed sales didnt impr ove, either, with a 23 percent decrease month over month to 518 in Fe bruary 2016 from 672 in February 2015. However, many consumers prefer to look at a more comprehensive, wideranging view of performance by looking at a markets activity over the course of 12 months. For example, in the cumulative 12-month period ending February 2016, there was only a 2 percent decrease in overall closed sales, to 9,595 from 9,791 in the 12 months ending February 2015. The middle of the market did quite well in February, said Mr. Jones, pointing out that overall closed sales activity for homes over $300,000 all had positive activity. Closed sales for condominiums in the $300,000 to $500,000 price category went up 21 percent, he added. Buyers are educating themselves and taking time to look for deals, Mr. Fioretti concluded. The NABOR February 2016 market report provides comparisons of singlefamily home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Here are some of the findings: Overall pending sales decreased 22 percent to 993 in February 2016 from 1,280 in February 2015. Pending sales for single-family homes in the $500,000 to $1 million price category increased 42 percent to 126 single-family homes in February 2016 from 89 single-family homes in February 2015. Overall closed sales decreased 2 percent to 9,595 homes in the 12 months ending February 2016 from 9,791 homes in the 12 months ending February 2015. Overall median closed price increased 13 percent to $310,000 in the 12 months ending February 2016 from $275,000 in the 12 months ending February 2015. Overall inventory increased 27 percent to 5,577 homes in February 2016 from 4,406 homes in February 2015. Condominium inventory for the $300,000 to $500,000 price category increased 54 percent to 718 condominiums in February 2016 from 465 condominiums in February 2015. Average days on market decreased 15 percent to 79 days in February 2016 from 93 days in February 2015. Wes Kunkle, president and managing broker at Kunkle International Realty, pointed to some activity in the report that was not anticipated, including 37 percent and 47 percent increases in inventory for condominiums in the $1 million to $2 million and $2 million and above categories, respectively. There was a flood of inventory for these in February, but closed sales were down 12 and 11 percent, respectively, despite the almost insignificance price increases, Mr. Kunkle said. There might be an election cloud affecting consumer confidence right now, Mike Hughes, vice president and general manager for Downing-Frye Realty, speculated. This and other influences fluctuating stock market, the Canadian exchange rate and the shortage of low-end inventory, among them create headwinds in our market. Of note in the February NABOR numbers were inventory increases by geographic location. While all areas experienced double-digit increases, the most significant changes were: Overall inventory in North Naples (the 34109, 34110 and 34119 ZIP codes), which is the geographic area with the highest number of homes on the market, increased 39 percent to 1,611 homes in February 2016 from 1,156 homes in February 2015. Single-family home inventory in the Naples beach area (34102, 34103, 34108) increased 28 percent to 651 single-family homes in February 2016 from 507 single-family homes in February 2015. Condominium inventory in North Naples increased 61 percent to 704 condominiums in February 2016 from 438 condominiums in February 2015. February had the lowest number of closed sales on record of any month since November 2013 and the highest inventory level in two years, said Bill Coffey, broker manager of Amerivest Realty Naples. If we continue to see a dramatic increase in inventory each month like we did for February, then we may eventually see it affect median closed prices.

Written in 1882, An Enemy of the People tells the story about the contamination of a towns drinking water. Because the story so closely imitates the situation unfolding in Flint, the theater company decided to use its production of the play to help make a difference in Flint, according to Artistic Director Kristen Coury. The theater company will donate the full $5 price for every bottle of water sold during the show to FlintKids.org, a fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Flint that was established as a supplemental resource to the ongoing pursuit of state and federal funding to provide wraparound health and development services for the children of Flint, particularly those most vulnerable, ages birth to 6 years old.

CreateSpace. 246 pages. Oversized paperback, $20. This entertaining book has been out for a while, but its been hiding. So heres why you should find it. Lynn Loscutoffs memoir provides an insider look at the great Boston Celtics during their glory years. It gives the fascinating wifes eye view, and in his foreword Red Auerbach, the teams legendary coach, assures us that Mrs. Loscutoff portrayed the role of the athletes wife to perfection. Its an enjoyable love story, and its also the story of an attractive, aspiring artist making her way in the world while tied to a basketball wifes responsibilities. And its truly a scrapbook/memoir, with dozens of fascinating photographs of the Celtics, the family and their travels plus a bit of Lynns art. Written in a casual, personal style, Loscy and Me gives the feeling of being part of a group sitting around a table and hearing Lynn tell her stories. When Jim Loscutoff, a college star at the University of Oregon, is drafted by the Boston Celtics, an adventure begins for the nave couple. Lynns portrait of their new experiences making a home in Boston and becoming part of the team culture is vividly presented. Readers are reminded of the relative obscurity of the NBA in the early and mid-1950s. It was a league with only eight teams and a much smaller following than baseball, football or even hockey. The fact that Coach Auerbach did not allow team wives to travel to away games put an immediate strain on the marriage, but it led Lynn to rely more and more on bonding with the other players wives. Her descriptions of their individual personalities and relationships are detailed and flavorful. Jims role was to be extremely physical, to play hard defense, rebound and pass to the star shooters. A good shooter himself and a scoring leader in college, he found the role frustrating, but thats what the coach wanted. Soon enough, he relished in his persona as Jungle Jim and understood his place in the scheme. Coach Auerbach was building a fast-break team of highly talented players, and Jim was fortunate to be part of it. He received good press and became one of the guys. Maybe too much so. What the men shared, especially on the road, could not be shared with the wives. Lynn felt emotionally lost, and Jims frequent exhaustion when he came home left her frustrated by a lack of physical intimacy. Worse, he did not seem interested in what she wanted to tell him. Talking about the team and the latest game was about as far as his conversation went. In her memoir, Lynn balances the personal story, which includes the raising of three children, with a well-rounded review of the Celtics rise to dominance and the remarkable, unparalleled string of consecutive championships. She could share that excitement and Jims pride in being an important cog in the wheel, but she wondered if the day would ever come for her to follow her interests and nurture her creative longings. Indeed, that satisfaction was long postponed, but she did eventually flourish as an artist and art educator. A high point of the book is the description of the day camp Lynn founded. Although Camp Evergreen was imagined as a family operation, she was always in the lead. Jim, in retirement and with a degree in physical education, found a teaching and coaching job; he also gave time and energy to the camp, lending as well his reputation and his connections to other celebrity basketball players. Lynn reveals mixed feelings about Coach Auerbach. She respects the discipline he instilled in his players, his basketball genius and his determination. She questions his mean streak, which included his decision to have Jim stay on the bench during his last game as a Celtic rather than give him the chance to play and interact with his teammates and fans. Jim had made so many sacrifices for the team, including working his way back through two major, career-threatening injuries. Theres much more in this unusual, extremely readable memoir by the watercolor artist who splits her time between Gloucester, Mass. and Naples. For more about her, see lynnloscutoff.com. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. p h a O t philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com LOSCUTOFF

Jeff Binder, Gulfshore Playhouses artistic associate, stars as Thomas Stockmann, a doctor who discovers that his towns popular medicinal springs are poisoning people who come to their for their health. Controversy ensues as the doctor is vilified for endangering the towns livelihood. The mayor, who happens to be Dr. Stockmanns brother, does not believe the report that shows the towns baths are contaminated and refuses to shut them down or repair them because it will cause the financial ruin of the town. In a public meeting, the mayor has his brother declared an enemy of the people. After this, Dr. Stockmann decides to leave the town, but at the last minute vows to stay and fight for what he believes is right. The play takes politics to a personal level and is perhaps more relevant today than the day it was written. According to The New York Times, At a time when Americas political discourse is reaching fever pitch in advance of the presidential election, An Enemy of the Peoples heated discussion of just who should control the levers of power in a society makes for savory meat to chew on after the curtain has fallen. In addition to Mr. Binder as the doctor and David Whalen as the mayor, the Gulfshore Playhouse cast includes Lindsey Kyler as Petra Stockmann, Larry Paulsen as Aslaksen, Jessica Wortham as Catherine Stockmann, John Corey as Horster, Timothy John Smith as Hovstad and Larry John Meyers as Morten Kiil.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 24-30, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYThe three jurors who judged the 51st Founders Art Exhibition at The von Liebig Art Center in Naples agree. They awarded Mr. Haan second prize. The exhibit, which hangs through April 16, consists of 23 pieces the jurors chose from among works by 261 artists from 31 states and five countries who entered the competition. I joke that my whole career is doing paintings of cinderblocks and concrete blocks on silk, Mr. Haan says. People tend to have the same reaction when they see his art. Well, what they usually do, he says, is they go up, and mostly they start looking at it from the side. They put their head against the wall and try to see: Are there things jutting out (from the painting), or is it flat? For the record, its flat, even though it doesnt look that way. Society, his prize-winning piece at The von Liebig, is, like the rest of his work, acrylic painted on silk and then mounted on Masonite board. Its also wall-like in dimension: 8 feet by 8 feet, a pattern of cinderblocks with some looking as if theyre sticking out. Although the painting looks gray from a distance, up close you can see various colors mixed in. The artist says he did that as a reward for people who study the piece. It took me weeks and weeks, he says. I wanted to reward people if they got up really close to it. To people admiring his painting at the opening reception for the exhibit, he would say: Do you know cinderblocks are really hot this year? Theyve been a hot thing with Mr. Haan since 1988, when he created his first wall painting. The self-taught artist is so enamored with walls that he even has a website called addictedtowalls.com. He didnt always paint walls, though. He started with portraits of people. When he went to the South Pacific with the Peace Corps, he took an oil painting starter kit with him. For 10 years, he painted portraits of villagers and his Samoan family. After he returned to the states, someone who saw him sketching at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., told him, Youre really good. Did you ever paint a duck? And that was how he learned of the Federal Duck Stamp Competition. I thought: I love ducks, Im going to win that million dollars. But, he adds, he knew nothing about ducks. So I went to the zoo, and all the ducks were molting. He eventually went back to the Smithsonian to look at the museums stuffed ducks. He did a portrait of a king eider and entered it in the contest. I didnt know I was competing against every wildlife artist there is, he says. It was the first duck hed ever painted. He came in second place. The winner that year got $2 million, he says ruefully. The prize for coming in second? Nothing. People couldnt believe hed come so close, and on his first try. Some people (paint wildlife) their whole lives and never get in, he says about the prestigious stamp competition. Even though he still didnt know much about ducks, he continued to paint them. I had a dealer who took me under his wing, he says. He took me on hunting expeditions. We went to private aviaries. He opened a lot of doors, gave me access to beautiful birds that most people cant get that close to. One man from a raptor rehabilitation center let him keep his golden eagle for three days. Mr. Haan entered several state Duck Stamp competitions and won Nevada twice and Delaware once. But it wasnt satisfying for him as an artist. I was looking for an idea to join my contemporary artist friends, he says. Im doing paintings of ducks and theyre doing these grand abstractions. I just envied that. So one afternoon, after hed been working six months on a painting of a peacock, he sat back with a cocktail in his basement studio. And I looked at the walls and actually saw them for the first time. I thought: These are very beautiful. Why not do a painting of a cinderblock wall? He spent more than six months trying to paint a wall that looked like a wall. My family thought Id gone completely insane, because I was pretty good at painting ducks, he says. Everyone was telling him how beautiful his peacock painting was. And in the back of my mind, I thought: Its a beautiful subject to start with. Youre going to end up with a beautiful painting if you start with a beautiful subject. But making someone go Wow! when theyre looking at a painting of a cinderblock, he says, Thats a high accomplishment, higher than doing something thats pretty. In his paintings of walls, he says, Im trying to ennoble a common building material that most people dont even look at twice. People see them all over the place every day, but no one looks at this as something beautiful. My goal is to help people appreciate the beauty that is there. You just have to see it. One day, he says, he was walking down the street with his mother when she pointed out a wall and said, Now theres a beautiful wall. And I thought, OK, theres my first convert. I went on from there. Mr. Haans cinderblock paintings are so realistic that one museum curator whod seen his work online thought he did installations with piles of cinderblocks, even though his website states theyre acrylic paint on silk. Hes had his work shown at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the Coral Springs Art Museum, the Hollywood Art and Cultural Center and the Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale. And he has a painting in the permanent collection of the Frost Art Museum in Miami. He did a series called Urban Cave Paintings. Its as though you would buy a house and go into the basement and discover an archaeological site there, he describes. He named his series combining contemporary graffiti with cave art Graffiti Isnt What It Used to Be. He also did a series of cinderblock walls that represented his state of mind on different days of the week. Hes currently painting cinderblock walls that want to be something theyre not. He calls the series The Futility of Envy. Galleries have no idea how to market me, he says. He has a website, artforarchitects.com, where he sells his work directly to architects. Since he began painting cinderblocks, hes never looked back. I get more pleasure from this, he says. Ive never painted a feather since.

One of Donizettis most popular works, it is the story of Nemorino, a poor peasant in love with a beautiful landowner, Adina, and tormented by her utt er indifference. The opera bubbles with effervescent arias and charm as the elixir causes as many problems as it solves. In its synopsis of the work, the Metropolitan Opera says: The story deftly combines comic archetypes with a degree of genuine character development rare in works of this type. Its ending is as much a foregone conclusion as it would be in a romantic comedy film today the joy is in the journey, and Donizetti created one of his most instantly appealing scores for this ride. The upcoming production includes both celebrated and up-and-coming artists from around the world, the Gulfshore Opera Orchestra and Chorus and dancers from Gulfshore Ballet. Celebrated Irish tenor Anthony Kearns, South African bass-baritone Musa Ngqungwana and American soprano Danielle Talamantes lead the cast. Mr. Kearns, who is known around the world for his PBS appearances and has performed locally numerous times, is making his debut in the role of Nemorino. Mr. Ngqungwana is revisiting the role of the operas charlatan medicine man. In addition to being an opera singer, he is an inspirational speaker and author. In 2014 he self-published a memoir about his upbringing in South Africa during and following apartheid, focusing on his path to becoming a singer amidst a system of segregation and an impoverished background. He now enjoys a flourishing singing career with engagements on some of the worlds major opera stages. About her leading role of Adina, Ms. Talamantes says, My season this year has been filled with dramatic concert work and intense operas, so Elixir is going to feel wonderfully refreshing and playful. Baritone Wes Mason, a former classmate of Mr. Ngqungwana at the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia, sings the role of the pompous Sergeant Belcore. Belcore is one of my favorite roles, and I havent had an opportunity to play him since my time with Musa at the academy, Mr. Mason says. I cant wait to see what magic we will create. Ryan McAdam, who is conducting the Gulfshore Opera Orchestra in Elixir of Love, has conducted the orchestra of Maggio Musicale in Florence three times and made his Eastern European debut with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. He has also led the Israel Philharmonic in three performances, one of which was recorded live and released on the Helicon Classics label. A Fulbright scholar, he served as apprentice conductor of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic and is the first-ever recipient of the Sir Georg Solti Emerging Conductor Award. When he was a boy in St. Louis, Mr. McAdams mother sang in the ensemble of Opera Theatre of St. Louis. That experience showed me what a major opera company could be for its community, how it gives audiences a sense of ownership and involvement in a production, and how it could showcase local talent, Mr. McAdams says. For much of my career, Ive sought out companies with a similar philosophy. About Gulfshore Opera, he adds, Im honored to be working with a company that brings together both internationally renowned and extraordinary local musicians, dancers and artists. The Gulfshore Opera Orchestra includes professional musicians who regularly perform with the Naples Philharmonic, the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra and the Southwest Florida Symphony. Stage director for the production is David Grabarkewitz. I have always considered Elixir to be one of the great romantic comedies, and although we are traditional in sets and costumes for this production, it is the delightful sparring of Kate Hepburn and Spencer Tracy in Desk Set and Rosalind Russell and Cary Grant in His Girl Friday that are easy examples of how fun a story this can be. Bus trip takes opera aficionados to The PassengerNaples Opera Society invites opera aficionados to board a Miami-bound bus for Florida Grand Operas production of Mieczyslaw Weinbergs The Passenger on Saturday, April 9. Lauded as a perfect masterpiece by Dmitri Shostakovich, the opera is the story or a former warden at Auschwitz, now on an ocean liner headed for Brazil with her husband, who believes a fellow passenger is a former prisoner. Mr. Weinberg left Poland on foot in 1939, escaping the Holocaust that claimed his parents and sister. He died in 1996, never having seen a performance of his opera. The $140 round trip includes fine dining at a Coral Gables restaurant, pre-opera lecture and mezzanine seating for the show at the Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts. An optional rear orchestra seat is available for $165. Board the bus at any of three locations: 11:45 a.m. at the Ace Hardware Shopping Center in Cape Coral. 12:45 p.m. at Cypress Trace Shopping Center in South Fort Myers. 1:30 p.m. at Crossroads Shopping Center in Naples.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 24-30, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Whether you need a car, truck or van, Enterprise is the perfect choice. 1 800 rent-a-car enterprise.com W h Pick-up subject to geographic and other restrictions. 2015 Enterprise Rent-A-Car G00131 8/15 ARTS COMMENTARYBeckys New Car a fun ride at Florida RepLife is chaos and holidays. Who can say why things turn out the way they do? All I know is that my life has become the story of a handful of people Ive met by chance and the things we did together. Walter Flood in Beckys New CarThere comes a time in life when you long for something new. Youre tired of being overworked and underpaid, taken for granted. You work longer and longer hours, your work life bleeding into your personal life, yet you get no recognition or reward. Youre at the age where friends get divorced, get sick, die. All of this, unfortunately, becomes more and more common as the years pass. Life stops holding pleasant surprises and changes. Instead, all you have is a rut. If you had a theme song, it might well be Peggy Lees Is That All There Is? As Walter says in Beckys New Car, Things narrow, dont they? As we age. The things in our life our life itself, whether we admit it or not it begins to narrow. And the unexpected fades away. Becky, the titular character, had a friend with a theory: When a woman says she wants new shoes, what she really wants is a new job. When she says she wants a new house, she wants a new husband. And when she says she wants a new car, she wants a new life. But her wonderful friend who espoused this theory has died. One night, when Becky is once again working late at the car dealership, a man comes in to purchase new cars as gifts for his employees. Walter (Peter Thomasson), a dashing widower, is quite taken with Becky (Carrie Lund), and mistakenly thinks that she too, is alone in the world, that her husband has passed. But Joe (Craig Bockhorn), a roofer, is very much alive. Becky doesnt know how to correct Walters assumption, so she goes along with it. And then he calls her up and asks her out. And Beckys life suddenly becomes even more complicated. Her home life is comfy but predictable. Joe is sweet and steady a regular Joe, if you will but not all that romantic. Their 26-year-old son, Chris (Kyle Ashe Wilkinson), is still living at home. A psychology major in grad school, he psychoanalyzes his parents and feels superior to them. He has a lot of book knowledge, but lacks social skills or empathy. Self-centered to the extreme, hes obnoxious. You wish his parents would pack his bags and set them and Chris on the sidewalk and say, Good luck. A little of Chris goes a long way. Ms. Lunds Becky, on the other hand, is sunny and friendly. She breaks the fourth wall immediately from the beginning, talking and interacting with the audience numerous times. You might not agree with all of her decisions, but you take an instant liking to her and cheer her on from the very beginning. Joe is blue-collar, sports-loving, satisfied with the simple things in life. Mr. Bockhorn delivers his lines deadpan, with perfect understatement. At one point he says to his wife, Oh Becky, weve had a good day. Lets not ruin it by having a talk. He loves her, but he takes her for granted. Beckys work husband, Steve (William McNulty), also takes her for granted. He assumes shes going to do all the work he throws at her and that she is always willing to sit and listen to him, no matter how he much he talks. Steves wife died in a hiking accident and hes never gotten over it. He finds himself unable to stop thinking about her or talking about her. People urge him to get over it and move on, though it just happened in the past year. (He has a priceless moment when he relays a murderous daydream about a puppy; it received one of the nights biggest laughs.) Walter, too, carries a torch for his late wife. Mr. Thomasson plays him perfectly: somewhat bumbling but filled with boyish charm and vulnerability. (Its difficult to believe this is the same actor who played Satan in The Seafarer earlier in the season.) Director Robert Cacioppo keeps the tone of this play light and mines it for all the humor it possesses. And there are many, many laughs. But I found myself wishing for a little more pathos at times, a little more darkness. This is, after all, a play about grieving and death and loss of all kinds: loss of dreams, loss of youth, loss of the life one has known, loss of identity. Many of the characters are set adrift by the unexpected changes in their lives. Exploring that a little more deeply wouldnt have detracted from the play at all. As it is, Beckys mid-life crisis doesnt seem like much of a crisis. Florida Rep ensemble member Sara Morsey plays Ginger, a friend of Walters who is experiencing a crisis of her own. Though the role is slight, she plays it with elegance, grace and razor-sharp humor. Acting intern Haley Ondrejka portrays Walters daughter, Kenni, whos struggling with confusion in her romantic life. Beckys New Car has an interesting history. Written by Steven Dietz, it was commissioned by Charles Staadecker as a birthday present for his wife, Benita. It had its premiere at Seattles ACT Theatre. The couple tries to attend every opening of the play if they can; Mr. Cacioppo announced from the stage that not only were the Staadeckers in the audience, but had moved from Seattle to Naples. Beckys New Car first played in the area at Theatre Conspiracy. Though this is the third production Ive seen of this play, the lines still possess the ability to make me laugh. A lot. And it is, bless the playwright, one of the rare plays that examine love among people in mid-life. The set by Richard Crowell is serviceable. Its a challenge: The space has to be a car dealership, Becky and Joes living room and kitchen, Walters house with a fancy terrace and even some various cars. My favorite part of it was the large, translucent roadway used as a backdrop, with David Uptons lighting helping to create various moods. Florida Reps production is a very light-hearted take on Beckys New Car, with multiple laughs per mile. This is one joyride you wont want to miss. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Beckys New Car>> When: Through April 6 >> Where: Florida Repertory Theatre, Fort Myers >> Cost: $49, $45 >> Info: 332-4488 or oridarep.org SUMMER GROH / FLORIDA REPERTORY THEATRE William McNulty plays Steve, the work husband, to Becky, played by Carrie Lund.

It is generally easier for declarer to indulge in deception, since he has no partner to fool, but there are times when a defender can attempt to mislead declarer without running the risk of deceiving his partner. Take this case where declarer went wrong because of a fine deceptive play by a defender. West led a club, won by the ace, and declarer played a trump to the jack, which held, followed by another trump to Wests ace. South ruffed the club return and led a spade to the jack. Had East taken the trick with the queen, there would have been no story to tell. But instead, East won with the ace and returned a low diamond. Spurning the finesse, declarer rose with the ace and led a spade to the ten, expecting to win the trick and discard his two remaining diamonds on dummys spades. But East took the ten with the queen and cashed the king of diamonds, and South much to his chagrin went down one. Had East won the first spade with the queen and returned a diamond, South would have had no choice but to try the finesse and so would have made the contract. It is true that South could have made the hand by taking the diamond finesse, but he fell into a trap that just about anyone else would also have fallen into. Rather than criticize South for his failure to make the contract, though, it is better to give credit where credit is due and congratulate East for finding the way to lead declarer astray.

SUNDAYMarch 27th 2016 10-4 pmFREE ADMISSIONMARCO ISLANDHello, My Name Is Doris (Sally Field, Max Greenfield, Tyne Daly) Sixty-something Doris (Ms. Field) falls for her 20-something co-worker (Mr. Greenfield). Ms. Field makes Doris so endearing and likeable that we easily look past her characters un-thought-out desires. Its a cute movie. Rated R.Zootopia 1/2(Voices of Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba) From Disney Animation (Frozen), a small town bunny (Ms. Goodwin) moves to the big city and teams up with a sly fox (Mr. Bateman) to track down missing mammals. 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.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. Miller) Diagnosed with terminal cancer, bad boy and reluctant hero Wade Wilson (Mr. Reynolds) undergoes treatment that makes him a mutant (the story takes place in the X-Men universe). 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.How To Be Single (Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Alison Brie) New York City singles find themselves among friends not romantic partners in this smart comedy. Ms. Wilson gets the biggest laughs with Leslie Mann coming in a close second. Best of all, this film allows people to be single and happy, which is a rarity in movies. 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. Its a harrowing action drama with solid visual effects and action. Rated PG-13. FILM CAPSULES

Offer expires March 31, 2016. HAPPY HOUR 5-7 DINNER FOR 2 $39.95 LATEST FILMSDoughIs it worth $10? YesNat Dayan (Jonathan Pryce) lives in the past. A devout Jew in London, the 60-something senior runs a failing kosher bakery. His wife died two years ago, and he clings to the bakery because he used to run it with his father. Hes lonely, overworked, stubborn and prideful, a stickin-the-mud who insists he knows whats best even though the world has passed him by. At the start of Dough, a seriocomedy from director John Goldschmidt, Nats employee Danny (Dominic Garfield) resigns to work for the large grocery chain next door. Annoyed at the impertinence, Nat seeks a new apprentice and finds one in a teenage Muslim from Darfur named Ayyash (Jerome Holder). What Nat doesnt know is that Ayyash also sells marijuana in order to support himself and his mother, as they are immigrants still establishing themselves in their new home. Serendipity intervenes, at least for a while, when Ayyash accidentally drops a bag of weed inside some dough and their baked business goes sky high. Meanwhile, a corporate tycoon (Philip Davis) wants Nat to sell his shop so he can put up a big grocery store. But Nat refuses even though his son (Daniel Caltagirone) thinks he should sell and retire. His neighbor, Joanna (Pauline Collins), doesnt want to sell either, as her store is one of the last vestiges she has of her late husband. And always dangerously lurking in the background is Ayyashs drug boss (Ian Hart), who gets wind of the bakerys success and doesnt take kindly to it. Mr. Goldschmidts film, from a script by Jonathan Benson and Jez Freedman, takes a handful of serious topics and handles them with gentility and a soft heart. Its not often or likely that youll see an aging baker, struggling immigrants, bombastic drug lord, lonely widow and scheming corporate exec so deftly balanced within the same story, but each is a convincing and essential part of the narrative. This is not a bawdy, bonkers laughout-loud comedy, though a few choice moments will have you roaring. The humor is more subtle and situational, which allows the film to maintain an element of seriousness and not devolve into farce. Because of this the social messages hit home, and they are plentiful: A Muslim and a Jew working peacefully together, small businesses holding their own against corporate giants, the need for companionship after losing the love of your life, an immigrants struggle to make ends meet in an unforgiving society, the recklessness of youth and how it impacts those around them, etc. None are touched upon with great depth or insight, but all are handled with fearless warmth. Dough is a nice story that delivers a serious message with the sweetness of challah bread. It will, of course, play better with an older Jewish crowd, but the universality of its humor and themes make it easily accessible for all. d t k b t d dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Jonathan Pryce plays the High Sparrow on HBOs Game of Thrones.

There were carved wooden sailboats, tin models of paddle-wheel boats, ocean liners and military fleets made by the 19th century. By the 20th century many were made with mechanisms that pushed them across the water. Or there were simple floating pond boats. The exploding boat wasnt made until the early 1900s. It was a toy made of blocks of wood and came with a submarine or cannon that could shoot a wooden torpedo at the side of the boat and blow the wooden blocks apart. The first of these was a 12-inch battleship and cannon set made by Baker and Bennett of New York about 1905 called Exploding Battleship Builder. Schoenhut made a similar toy in 1915 called the Naval War Game. It was a boxed set with a ship, submarines and three torpedoes. The mechanisms were simple. Each ship had a hollow spot in the lowest wooden section where a mousetrap was set. When the torpedo hit the ships side, the trap was sprung and the boat came apart in a noisy explosion. Homemade versions were made following printed instructions in a 1935 Popular Science magazine. And in the 1950s, a similar plastic toy was made. The early exploding B & B toy set, 16 pieces and the box, sold at a James Julia auction in Fairfield, Maine, in 2015 for $237.Q: We bought an arts-and-crafts-style home, which was built in 1913 in a historic district of San Diego. There is a round circle of brass about two inches in diameter in the middle of the diningroom floor. There are three holes in the brass for prongs to be inserted. Could it have been a servants bell?A: Servants bells were used to summon servants in homes built for the wealthy. By the early 20th century, bells were electric and were wired from various rooms in the house to the servants area. The bell in the middle of the dining-room floor would have been near the head of the diningroom table. Wires from the bell led to the kitchen. Someone sitting at the table could step on the bell to call a servant to bring the next course. The holes in the brass may be where the bell or the wires were attached to the plate in the floor.Q: We have a dresser with a label that reads Globe-Bosse World Furniture Co. When was that company in business? A: Globe-Bosse World Furniture Co. was founded in Evansville, Ind., in 1910 when three furniture companies in Evansville joined together. The Globe Furniture Co. started in 1899, Bosse Furniture Co. in 1905 and World Furniture Co. in 1907. A fire destroyed much of the company in 1946. It was out of business by the early 1960s. Q: Were round, colored-glass rose bowls really used for roses in Victorian times when many were made? A: Yes. Roses are an old-fashioned flower and they were grown in Victorian gardens in many areas of the U.S. New rose plants have been hybridized to have larger, more colorful flowers, be more diseaseresistant and bloom earlier or later than the old ones. But old-fashioned climbing roses still are a favorite with gardeners. The rose bowl is shaped like a ball. The opening at the top turns in but does not turn out again, though it might have a small rim. The bowls are designed to hold bunches of short-stemmed heavy, large single rose blossoms. They were popular from the 1880s to the 1920s, the same time colored glass was in fashion. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Henry T., via emailA: Fox is going you one better: Prison Break is indeed coming back, but as a limited-event series. The nine-episode series will star Wentworth Miller as Michael Scofield and Dominic Purcell as his brother, Lincoln. Sara Wayne Callies also is returning as Sara Tancredi, who is raising the child she had with the believed-to-bedead Michael with her new husband (played by Mark Feuerstein). This past January, Fox co-chairman and CEO Gary Newman told reporters at the TCA Winter Press Tour: We all who watched the show and loved it thought that Michael had died. Paul Scheuring came in with a great twist that explains that he didnt die, and what hes been doing in the interim. Q: I thought that The Mindy Project was over for the season, but my friend told me it was just on winter hiatus. Is that true, and if so, when will it be back? Lindsay G., via emailA: Your friend is absolutely right. The ridiculously funny comedy returns to Hulu starting April 12. When we last saw the folks at Schulman and Associates, Mindy (played by Mindy Kaling) was reflecting on her time with Danny (Chris Messina) from their rough beginning to their wonderful middle to the contentious time they are having now where they cant seem to agree on anything and she appeared to have come to a decision to leave him. So well see where these new parents are when the show returns, but I have a feeling Mindy is going to tell misogynistic Danny to hit the curb if he doesnt change his caveman ways. Q: I read where Ian McShane will be on The Game of Thrones this season, but only for an episode or two. Is that true? Id love to see more of him. Paul T., Greenville, S.C.A: While the legendary British actor did reveal that he has signed on for only one episode of the hit drama/fantasy series which has its sixth-season premiere April 24 on HBO he gave away another possibly bigger spoiler that I wont divulge here. (Google it if you really have to know, but Celebrity Extra is a spoiler-free zone.) McShane also has joined the cast of American Gods, which will air on Starz and is based on Neil Gaimans fantasy novel of the same name. Ian will play Mr. Wednesday, who according to The Hollywood Reporter is described as powerful and charismatic a Casanova of sorts who is a con man and an incarnation of All-Father Odin, whos traveling America recruiting his fellow forgotten deities to wage an epic battle against the new American gods. The series also stars Ricky Whittle (The 100 and Austenland). No word yet on when the series will premiere. MATT HOYLE/CBSMILLER Chris Messina, Mindy Kaling and Ed Weeks star in The Mindy Project.

The program uses baking as a way to reinforce math and science lesson and to encourage youngsters to give back to their community. Heres how it works: The flour company has already delivered a pallet of flour to the school in preparation for two sessions next week with sixth-grade science students. A representative of the company will instruct the kids in the finer points of recipe conversions, baking science and techniques before sending them home with enough ingredients to bake two loaves of bread: one to keep and one to bring back to school to donate to Grace Place for Children & Families. Theyll learn about the integration of math, science and community involvement, said Principal Mason Clark. Even if some of the students return with dough-bricks instead of bread, Mr. Clark is optimistic this is a unique opportunity to apply the students science curriculum to a practical use. Its chemistry in action, he said. Since King Arthur started the free program in 1992, more than 275,000 students across the country have participated, donating thousands of baked goods to community organizations. In Lee County, Lee Virtual School students and children at Sanibel Community Church are also participating. Learn. Bake. Share. Those are the three main goals that the Bake for Good program aims to provide kids, says Paula Gray, program manager for King Arthur Flour. In the cross-curricular program, students learn about baking while using practical applications of math, science and comprehension skills. Theyre excited to take that knowledge home and bake two loaves of bread, which they can then share with a community member in need.

The 26th annual Taste of Marco returns to The Esplanade from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 3, with lots of bites from Marco Islands top restaurants as well as fun for the kids, live entertainment by The Greg Miller Band and March Kercher and much more.

The Hours: 11:30 a.m. to midnight, daily The Details: On a recent Sunday afternoon, I caught up with one of those friends who figure pretty largely in my life but has as crazy a schedule as I do. While we were shooting down each others lunch ideas since wed been all the same places together before lightening struck when we both hit on Zen Asian BBQ at the same time. Its now open for lunch, so we hightailed it over there and found that the restaurant does actually have a down time: Sunday afternoons are it. We were relieved to find a quiet space to gossip over afternoon wine and a light lunch. My tuna pizza, which is actually an appetizer, was a perfect accompaniment to my sauvignon blanc, with chopped sashimigrade tuna, tomato, red onion, jalapenos and gojuchang aioli on a grilled tortilla. It was light, tasty and easy to eat since I wanted to concentrate on my companion instead of my food. One More Thing: My friends pad thai was a thing of beauty, coming packaged in an egg crepe that, once pierced, issued forth steam that revealed lacy noodles beneath. Lindsey Nesmith email@example.com

Like Fuji, it offers a wide range of sushi plus cooked Thai and Japanese dishes. Stop in for the stellar sushi, but stay to explore the cooked fare. Try any of the dozen yakitori items, priced by the skewer, and dishes such as sauted chicken livers with asparagus, spicy tuna nachos and carpaccio of hamachi with jalapenos. A tiger roll (shrimp tempura with asparagus, avocado, rice, seaweed, sesame seeds, masago, smoked salmon, eel and wakame) was huge and wonderful. Grilled salmon with baby bok choy and lychee duck curry were as delicious as the sushi. For dessert, try the Tokyo sundae (sticky rice, green tea ice cream, red bean paste, lychee and coconut). Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2014 The Bay House, 799 Walkerbilt Road, Naples; 591-3837 When youre seated in the dining room overlooking the tranquil mangrove-lined Cocohatchee River, its hard to believe busy U.S. 41 is just yards away. The view here is matched by superb food and polished service. Executive Chef Andy Hunter and his team do a masterful job of showcasing fresh seafood with a nod to carnivores in the form of steak and one chicken dish. An appetizer called South of Broad features perfectly cooked fried green tomatoes, tangy goat feta, basil puree and tomato jam. A roasted beet and citrus salad, which included a delicious horseradish panna cotta, was equally good. The Coastal Pan Roast contained golden tilefish, shrimp, a devilled crab cake, Carolina gold rice, baby vegetables, corn pudding and red wine sauce. Seafood pirlau, a Low Country version of bouillabaisse, was full of shellfish with an outstanding house-made seafood sausage. Florida Sunshine (goat cheese cheesecake with pink grapefruit gelee and pools of blood orange and lemon curd, finished with tangy lime granite) provided and excellent finish. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2014 La Bazenne, 474 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 682-8623 Whether its breakfast, lunch or dinner you fancy, La Bazenne will serve it to you with proper French style and flair. This cozy little spot on Fifth next to Osteria Tulia, is operated by Martine and Bernard Giacometti. His parents have operated the original La Bazenne in France for 40 years. From crepe, salads or burgers early in the day to the more complex and interesting dinner lineup, the fare is tres magnifique. The octopus salad is outstanding (rendered tender via sous vide preparation) and served with broccoli rabe, cherry tomatoes and lemon verbena pesto. A chevre starter with cherry tomatoes, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds and mixed greens was also excellent. Entrees of diver scallops with English peas, scallops and pommes fondants were elegant and perfect, as was the crisp lavender duck with Florida orange glaze, kohlrabi and pommes almond. A cheese plate and aphrodisiaque crepe provided a wondrous ending to a flawless meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2014 Dollys Produce Patch & Eatery, 9930 Bonita Beach Road S.E., Bonita Springs; 992-8939 For 18 years, this low-slung box of a building with white lace curtains and Scandinavian tchotchkes has been sustaining locals and tourists with hearty breakfasts and speedy, inexpensive lunches. Its homemade pies are the stuff of legend, with their soaring meringues and incredibly flaky crusts. Lunchtime brings homemade soups, burgers made with handground beef, sandwiches piled high with deli meat and great salads. In contrast to all the fancy, piled-high burgers served these days, Dollys burger offer a welcome retreat to streamlined ingredients and uncomplicated flavors. You can and should upgrade from chips to sweet potato fries, which are thickly hand-cut to maximize flavor and coated with a light, flaky batter for extra crispness. Soft drinks served.

When the weather is good, reserve a table in the courtyard where tables are dressed in white linens and overlook the hotels pool. Do not miss the Veranda E calamari, a dish that may have ruined me for all other calamari preparations. Done kung pao style, it is tenderized and breaded, fried to a golden brown and topped with peanuts, peppers, chives and a spicy-sweet sauce. Also good were the Gulf shrimp with white stone ground corn grits and Creole bacon sauce; salad with Asian pear, Humboldt Fog cheese, organic baby greens and walnut vinaigrette; Hawaiian salmon with strawberry-basil relish and verjus rouge; boneless beef short ribs; and house-made lemon ginger ice cream with fresh berries.

CUISINEAgave sounds Southwestern, but menu is more of a melting potAgave Bar & Grill has been casting about for an identity almost since it opened several years ago. At first it served a splendid array of American Southwestern fare. But as sophisticated as Naples diners might be, they didnt get it. People expected Mexican food plates heaped with refried beans and rice and the bargain-basement prices that go with it. Agave was offering a much more upscale and distinctive regional cuisine, but no matter how much the management explained it, customers werent biting. And so began a series of reinventions. Check out the website these days and the first thing you see is a disclaimer: Agave Our name may not say it all. You can say that again. These days, the menu is a mlange of Mexican and Latin-inspired dishes with Californian and Floridian influence, according to the website. Theres also a weekly list called Chefs gone wild! that highlights Executive Chef Scott Beales specials. And so there are tacos, enchiladas, fajitas (for lunch), guacamole and fundido. There are flatbreads and yucca street fries. Baja steamers. And Southern fried chicken? Yes, that, too. If the concept doesnt seem well defined, a recent lunch there indicates that the kitchen is turning out good food, whatever its pedigree. There are some service issues that should have long ago been solved, but nothing egregious. And, comparing the lunch and dinner menu, unless you have your heart set on a big honking cowboy ribeye (16 ounces, bone in) or almondcrusted grouper over shrimp or one of the other more ornate evening entre offerings, I recommend stopping in for lunch when virtually all of the rest of the dinner menu is available (and some of it at lower prices). Thats what we did Saturday afternoon, finding the place sparsely populated. For reasons I cannot explain, the hostess asked us if we wanted to sit in the empty bar. I dont understand what the benefit would be when theres no band playing and theres no one in there. Next, she attempted to seat us in a booth right behind a pair of adults and their very small child, even though there were plenty of other booths and tables available. We finally took matters into our own hands and pointed to a more distant booth. (This isnt the first place in which a host or hostess has attempted to crunch everyone into one small section. Particularly during slow times, why not space people out so they arent on top of one another?) We passed on cocktails, but there are interesting looking mojitos and margaritas as well as tequila flights a holdover from Agaves early days. The menu has several gluten-free dishes, easily found by the symbol next to each item. For $2 extra you can even get the guacamole with raw veggies instead of tortilla chips. We ordered the guacamole ($10), a signature dish here, and our server brought it to the table along with bowls of shredded cotija cheese and diced jalapeno, adding both to our specifications. (Bacon is another option.) It was good but not as vibrant as I remember from previous visits. More limejuice, garlic and cilantro would have given it a more complex flavor. Also good were the Baja steamers ($13). The clams came awash in a chili cocktail broth that contained roasted garlic and chopped clams. The sauce was more brawny and spicier than the typical garlic butter sauce and was particularly good for dipping the pretzel rolls that came with it. Our guacamole arrived first and our server came out shortly thereafter to say the clams and our entrees were all ready and did we want everything at once? Well, no, we didnt. Through the glass that divides the kitchen from the dining room, we saw that the entrees were placed on a heat rack while we finished our appetizers. This is another of those odd things that happens way too often; entrees should never arrive while people are still eating their appetizers. This is especially true when there are hardly any customers, as was the case here. Luckily, the dishes we ordered didnt suffer from their time spent catching a few extra rays. The Saratoga veggie burger ($13) is a large house-made patty consisting of quinoa, rice and beans. It is far more flavorful and less gritty than the typical meatless burger. It came with guacamole, tomato, goat cheese and chipotle aioli on a gluten-free roll that was surprisingly good. The French fries that accompanied it were tasty, although they could have been warmer. The lobster and shrimp tacos ($18) contained big chunks of lobster and whole shrimp along with a generous portion of cabbage slaw, Brie, pineapple salsa and mint aioli. The flavors were bright and worked well together. A side of rice studded with corn and green onions was fine. I cant say that I can precisely explain what Agave is aiming for these days, but what is serves up is stylish and tasty. Perhaps thats enough.

Sienna Reserves models capturing the imagination of visitorsCommunity already 85% SoldSienna Reserve is an intimate enclave of 45 luxury custom single-family homes being developed by Zuckerman Homes on Livingston Road, between Vanderbilt Beach Road and Immokalee Road in North Naples. When the community opened its three models for tours in mid-February, each one shined on its own attributes. The Hibiscus, a single-story, three-bedroom plus study/three-bath home with 2,566 square feet under air and 3,378 total square feet, has a very open floor plan and a pool with five-foot high waterfall. The Magnolia Flex, a two-story, fourbedroom/three full-bath/two half-bath home with 4,004 square feet under air and 4,855 total square feet, has a fun game room and separate media room on the second floor. And then there is the incredible Rosewood, the largest model offered at Sienna Reserve. This two-story, five-bedroom plus study/five-and-a-half-bath home boasts 4,971 square feet under air and 5,997 total square feet. The first floor consists of a large leisure room with a set of pocketing sliding glass doors that lead outside to the covered Florida room with summer kitchen and pool. The kitchen features a breakfast bar, stainless steel Wolf and SubZero appliances, a morning cafe, a food pantry and a butlers pantry. Theres also a formal dining room, a parlor or study with a set of French doors, and a guest suite with full bath. In the space reserved for an optional elevator is a delightful wine closet. The upper floor features the master retreat, three guest bedrooms and a club room. The 21by 15-foot club room, located at the very top of the staircase, features a built-in bar and was designed for entertaining or relaxing. A half-bath is located nearby. At the back of the home is the extremely large master retreat, with its own private Starlite Deck that overlooks the pool below and serene nature preserve beyond. The open deck is often described as the ideal space to welcome the dawning of a new day or celebrating its ending. The master bedroom also has his and hers walk-in closets, sizes of which are unmatched in any other home in town. The master bath, with its double door entry, has a long vanity with his and her sinks and her dressing table, a free-standing soaking tub positioned by a picture window that looks out onto the nature preserve, a separate oversized shower and a private water closet with bidet. The three guest bedrooms are positioned near the front of the home. One has its own bath and two share a bath. A full laundry room with sink is also located on the second floor. From the large leisure room and gourmet kitchen on the first floor, to the club room and incredible master retreat on the second floor, it comes as no surprise to us why this floor plan is grabbing the imagination of many of the families that have toured it, stated Andy Zuckerman, President of Zuckerman Homes. This home simply has it all. In fact, all of our homes have been designed with todays home buyer in mind. Those words hold true considering the number of visitors the community has had since the week of the models grand opening, as well as the number of sales. Since mid-February more than 1,000 people have stopped by our sales center to begin their model tour, said Zuckerman. As of late March, the community is at the 85 percent sold mark, making Sienna Reserve one of the hottest selling communities in the Naples area. With all the visitors and recent sales one might get the notion that all the prime homesites are taken. Its not the case. Some of our best homesites are still available. But, time is of the essence considering the high interest in the community and the rapid rate of sales, stated Zuckerman. There are many reasons for Sienna Reserves sales success. Part of it is due 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. Says Zuckerman, Our research indicates buyers are looking for a more intimate community to call home. A natural setting. A place where neighbor knows neighbor. Thats exactly what we deliver. Sienna Reserve also has a dream location. The community is close to downtown Naples and its world-renowned shopping districts of Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South. Its also within minutes of Mercato, one of the most popular upscale shopping, dining and entertainment areas in town, explained Zuckerman. 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. 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. Prices at Sienna Reserve begin in the mid-$600s. Although eight floor plans are offered, Zuckerman Homes encourages purchasers to customize their home to fit their lifestyle. Its one of the many things that makes Sienna Reserve a unique place to live, play and enjoy all life has to offer, said Zuckerman. 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. Above: The two-story Rosewood is the largest floor plan offered at Sienna Reserve.

Kalea Bays sales success continues as first high-rise reaches skywardCommunity 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 highrise community has to offer.

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 tenth 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.

Our first residents will be able to enjoy the clubhouse and all its amenities the minute they move in, she said.
