Silver Alerts are a state program started in 2008 under Gov. Charlie Crist based on Amber Alerts (which help find missing children). But they are specifically for people 60 and older who have memory impairments or cognitive diseases such as Alzheimers and other forms of dementia, and who go missing while driving. Advocates are also developing protocols for law enforcement when seniors go missing on foot. Since 2008, at least 125 missing seniors were safely recovered as a direct result of someone read a highway sign and calling it in.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYGetting the wheel rollingFrom the Mosquito River near Cape Canaveral south through the Indian River, the Banana River, the Sebastian Inlet, the Fort Pierce Inlet, the St. Lucie Inlet and the Jupiter Inlet in Palm Beach County, the Indian River Lagoon stretches more than 150 miles, part of the longest barrier island system in the United States, a place that uniquely straddles two climate zones temperate and subtropical. The long stretch of seemingly languid liquid sunrises and sunsets stretching for thousands of years across time and brackish tides, as if nothing ever changed is really anything but languid, or eternal. Instead, its an explosion of fragile but enduring life-force, a coastal garland festooned with phyla, including almost 1,800 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and mollusks, various invertebrates such as ribbon worms, crustaceans such as crayfish, crabs, lobsters, and shrimp, moss animals and seemingly countless others, all of them relying on each other and the plants that in turn depend on water clean enough to spend thousands of years inhabiting some 200 plant species awash in algae or amoebas or pro tozo ans such as ciliates, the one-celled heterotrophs, sometimes carnivorous, that feed on bacteria or algae. Theres another system, more recent, that thrives in this unique American environment, as well: The economy. They say (by they I mean the people at the Smithsonian Marine Station in Fort Pierce) that the Indian River Lagoon supports 19,000 jobs, $250 million in annual income, $2 billion per year in the famous Indian river citrus crop, $465 million in income from boating, fishing, water sports, hunting and ecotourism, $140 million in revenue from commercial fishing, and almost 15 percent of the total harvest of fish and shellfish in the country. And lets not forget real estate some $825 million in revenue, each year, rolls in to somebodys happy hands because people want to live and work along the garland. I was chatting about this the other day with one of the most famous apologists for land and water in the state or the country, Nathaniel Reed. Mr. Reed, whose family founded the community on Jupiter Island, grew up in Florida and continued to raise cows until recently, while serving two presidents, six governors and founding a do-gooder outfit of very serious people obviously flawed by their lack of greed, known as 1000 Friends of Florida. He lives on the southern end of the Indian River Lagoon, near Jupiter, where he can see five miles of wet green and sky blue, the colors of his life and perhaps of his dreams. This is one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world, a world treasure, he told me. And its going away. Almost a half-century ago, Mr. Reed became a resistor in the struggle to prevent such a tragedy by signing on as a pipe-smoking assistant secretary of the interior under President Richard Nixon. He carried on when President Gerald Ford took office and never looked back, jamming the pipe in his mouth, he said, to help himself sometimes shut up. Nowadays, Mr. Reed seems fit to be tied, but not shut up, by two facts: One, the Indian River Lagoon is dying right in front of him, and on his watch, no less. And two, the tool to fix it is lying within reach, but nobody in state government seems to be willing to use it properly. Its called Amendment 1. Voters, about 4 million of them comprising 75 percent of every human who stepped into a voting booth, dropped that little honey right in front of the governor and the state Legislature about 18 months ago like a wheel in front of a cave of dim-witted Neolithic humans. There it lies, ready to rock n roll to provide, on average, more than $700 million per year for 20 years to buy land and clean water. (All you have to do is buy the damn land along rivers or south of Lake Okeechobee, for example, and let the water wash over it, instead of putting homes or cows or sugar cane or miles of runway or something else on it the problem is just not that complicated, suggests Mr. Reed). But they havent done that. In fact, he told me, theyve actively avoided doing that, instead finding ways to siphon off more than half the money, so far, to special interests.But thats part of a larger neglect that started in 2011 when the governor fired hundreds of state employees who helped regulate polluters, and put officials who have no interest in Mr. Reeds vision of Florida on water management boards, in Department of Environmental Protection and Division of Fish and Wildlife management positions, and probably in the 160 or so bathrooms in the state capitol building in Tallahassee, where they can flush anything they want down the toilets. Mr. Reed, in the meantime, probably wishes they had sewer systems along the Indian River Lagoon. Or more realistically, he wishes the state would just inspect the septic systems that homes and businesses already have instead, and bring them up to code. But no, and with catastrophic results. Scott removed plans to inspect septic, and in hindsight I dont know if it makes a difference, since 80 percent of septics along the Indian River Lagoon are leaking. All of them are sending daily a load of nitrogen into the sands at the end of the pipe, which percolates down and ends up in the Indian River. It cant stand it, and its saying so in a loud, clear message. Were getting these algal blooms. And God, a million fish (dead last winter). A million fish. And those fish helped support a million other creatures that help support us. Maybe somebody will pick up the tool and start it rolling. roger matterbrothersfurniture.comMonday-Saturday 10am-6pm, Sunday 12pm-5pmNaples, Ft.

It was organized by The Jewish Museum, New York, and the Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio. A multicity tour of the exhibition followed after its opening in the Big Apple, made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts, and many major donors and foundations. West Palm Beach was the last stop on the tour. The show told the story of the organization and its interests, tracing how photography as practiced by its members changed and broadly influenced photography as an art medium over the groups 15-year lifespan. It featured more than 175 works by the leagues members and other photographers of the same era. As a novice photographer, I was interested in seeing images from the era when documentary photography was still in its infancy. But I was unprepared for the revelations embodied in the focus of the exhibition. It was a visual experience inclusive of a narrative describing how a small group pf trailblazers idealistic, first generation, mostly Jewish Americans forever changed the concept and practice of documentary photography. It was an improbable outcome given the groups departure from political and artistic orthodoxy of the day. The group held to the principle that a photograph could inspire social change. Their black and white images depicted with stark realism the everyday life among those citizens of New York that conventional wisdom suggested were unworthy of artistic notice immigrants, minorities, the poor and the bluecollar workers of the city. With their cameras, they enthusiastically chronicled life within these diverse communities, beginning in 1936, when the group was founded, and up to the time of the Cold War. Some of the groups members were among the countrys most notable photographers. Their images broke new ground. They were informed by the groups leftist leanings and validated documentary-style photography with a political purpose as fine art. Their approach attracted controversy. David Gonzales of The New York Times wrote, the Photo League fell victim to Cold War witch hunts and blacklists, closing its doors after 15 intense years of trailblazing and sometimes hell-raising documentary photography. From unabashedly leftist roots, the group influenced a generation of photographers who transformed the documentary tradition, elevating it to heady aesthetic heights. There are photojournalists who continue the tradition, documenting the diversity of the human experience with powerful images. We may not know their names but we know their works, the iconic images we instantly associate with World War II, the Vietnam War era, the Civil Rights era and, more recently, the humanitarian crisis created by refugees fleeing the chaos in the Middle East the drowned body of a 3-year-old child washed up on a beach. We are branded by the memory of these images. With the advent of the digital world, smart phones and new technologies, we have entered the era of caught on camera. Video is king. Everyone is a video photographer. Reality is the focus of the content, wherever you can find it and you can find it everywhere, on YouTube, Facebook and hundreds of other photoand video-friendly applications. The person behind the lens puts it out there and the content finds its audience, for good or ill. Youre probably one of the 2 million people who viewed a recent video taken in a Starbucks of an irate woman giving Florida Gov. Rick Scott a big piece of her mind. She berated him for his having signed legislation that halts the states reimbursement of Planned Parenthood for reproductive health services for poor women and that also makes abortions more difficult for women to obtain. It was an inspired if impromptu performance of political theater with a powerful theme. It ended with the governor fleeing the verbal onslaught without his coffee. Not be outdone, he retaliated with his own Super PAC video, calling her a latte liberal, a public assistance suspect high on caffeine, frittering away her jobless hours, surfing the Internet while he was busy creating a million jobs. If the woman, former Lake Worth City Commissioner Cara Jennings, was overtly rude, the governors response was totally embarrassing. This might be the modern version of the radical camera, but sadly, it did not rise to the level of social change. Catherine Evans, curator of photography at Ohios Columbus Museum of Art, said of the relevance today of New Yorks Photo League, It was photography for and by the 99 percent. Save the hats and coats they wore, the images could have been ripped from current headlines in terms of banks failing and the Great Depression. Shes right. The league focused on progressive social change. Documentary-style photography was its means to achieve it, offering classes, sponsoring exhibitions, and building communities among aspiring photographers who were purposeful in their art. The millions of Americans who make up the 99 percent have a story to tell. Where are the radical cameras that tell it? Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian. Her professional career spans more than 25 years leading major philanthropic institutions in the South and Appalachia. She writes frequently on issues of politics, public policy and philanthropy, earning national recognition for her leadership in the charitable sector. She resides with her family and pugs in Jupiter.

If you thought this service to the GOP would be met with plaudits from the partys insiders, you obviously dont know anything about their relationship to the Texas senator. St. Augustine famously prayed, Dear Lord, make me chaste but not yet. The GOP establishments prayer is, Dear Lord, deliver us from Donald Trump but not with Ted Cruz. The increasing likelihood of a contested convention in Cleveland has led to chatter about turning to a white knight who has the advantage of being neither Trump nor Cruz. This talk has all the hallmarks of a psychological mechanism for GOP insiders to avoid acknowledging their dependence on Cruz, who is all that is standing between the party and what might be an epic Trump-led meltdown. A convention could and should deny Trump the nomination, but it wont be easy. There will be a perceived legitimacy problem in denying the top prize to the top vote-getter. This would obviously be magnified if a convention disregards both the firstand secondplace finishers. And for what? Electability? The only meaningful road test for a presidential candidate is running for president. Cruz has proved adept at it. He correctly read the mood of the Republican electorate and adjusted to Trump more skillfully than anyone else (not without some cringe-inducing moments). If Paul Ryan had run this year, in all likelihood he would have gotten chewed up and spat out like anyone else associated with the establishment. Who else? Mitt Romney? He had his chance. A governor? The plausible ones already ran. A senator? Ditto. While it is true that people in Washington tend to loathe Cruz, a convention wouldnt be a Senate Republican policy lunch. It would be stocked with Republican activists from around the country who have no firsthand knowledge of what Cruz did to so irk his colleagues, and probably dont care. All that said, it is possible to imagine a white-knight scenario, but only in a convention deadlock that might descend to South Korean-parliament levels of ugliness. The best, cleanest non-Trump scenario is that Cruz has the strength to win on an early ballot, and his anti-establishment credentials make a revolt by the Trump forces less potent. In short, the only reasonable alternative to Trump is Cruz. This is the conclusion that Scott Walker and other conservative leaders in Wisconsin came to, and they backed Cruz to the hilt. Republicans around the country who care about the integrity of their party and its electoral chances should do the same. Of course, Cruz would be an underdog against Hillary Clinton, but the man with the biggest media megaphone on the planet has been calling him a liar and a Canadian for months, and he trails Clinton by only 3 points in the RealClearPolitics average. Trump and Cruz have both won states around the country and millions of votes, and engendered intense followings. There is no getting around that they are the choice confronting the party. Its time to put away childish things, and pick sides. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYThey werent feeding on snook, he says. They were moving through. The sight, which reminded him of how it once was when many more of them were feeding on snook and many other species, made his heart ache, he admits. Its an ache, a longing for what was and what should be again, that isnt new for the 83-year-old Mr. Reed, a founder and chairman emeritus of 1000 Friends of Florida. A former assistant secretary of the interior under Presidents Nixon and then Ford a man who has served six Florida governors and sat on the boards of such august outfits or agencies as the National Geographic Society and Yellowstone National Park Mr. Reed had just come back from a 1000 Friends meeting in Key West to prepare for a fishing trip to the Bahamas. His work in the world isnt done, he insists, in part because 18 months ago Florida voters sought to give officials the most powerful tool theyve ever wielded in an effort to resist the destruction of lands and waters in the state, only to have it misused by state legislators, in his view. The tool is called Amendment 1 to the Florida constitution. About 75 percent of voters approved it 4 million men and women in the voting booth. Its relatively simple language requires a third of the tax money collected from the documentary stamps that come with every real estate sale in Florida between 2015 and 2035 to be set aside and used to buy land and help save water now being polluted and degraded so much that it threatens the future of the state. That will amount to some $700 million to $900 million or more each year in what is now a booming real estate economy attracting hoards of new residents and businesses to Florida. It gives legislators and resource managers a chance to plan, a chance to do the hard bargaining and purchasing of lands throughout the state that are crucial to cleanup and restoration. But many of them have no intention of doing that now, says Mr. Reed. At the 1000 Friends meeting, we talked about what the hell do we do after Gov. Scott and certain members of the Legislature are retired. The overwhelming sentiment shown by Amendment 1 voters has to be transplanted into acts at the local level to protect our land and water. This has to be a citizens movement. Weve given up on government right now, because antigovernment feeling toward the governor and his appointees, right down to the water management districts, is crushing any kind of sensible decision making on new plans blooming all over Florida.The devil and the detailsAlthough the language of Amendment 1 orders that the monies not be used for other purposes, only about a third of more than $650 million collected this year has been channeled directly into land purchases and water conservation projects defined as strictly Amendment 1 uses. And in the first year of the program, legislators put only about $17.5 million of what could have been more than $200 million into land acquisition through a program called Florida Forever Land Acquisition and managed to reinterpret how Amendment 1 should be understood, their critics say. But many legislators view such criticisms as unjustified. I think how we spent the money is completely consistent with the intention of Amendment 1, says Rep. Matt Caldwell, a District 79 Republican. The amendment says the trust fund is created to acquire, store, manage and improve conservation lands its a four-tier purpose. Acquire is only one of four verbs. So I feel comfortable I have met my constitutional duties toward that Amendment. Theres a lot more involved in solving the problem than simply buying land, he argues and leaving significant portions of that land in private hands has benefits both to agriculture and to conservation. Its so easy to say, we want Florida Forever, its land acquisition and that program used to get $300 million, Rep. Caldwell explains. But the problem is, Florida Forever used to be all bonded borrowed money. Thats the $175 million were paying on the debt for the existing bond. I put that expense in the land category (of Amendment 1) because its paying for land we already bought. Not only that, he adds, but as much as 70 percent of state lands may be in government hands federal, state or local, he estimates. And thats enough. So the rural and family land program, in which ranchers on their property can buy development rights thats a prototype of where the legislature is moving, he says. Keeping farmers on their land is a major part of the success weve had in recent years. The money goes farther. Those arguments dont make it with critics who say those old purchases already were planned for, and voters clearly saw Amendment 1 as a way to get new land essential to cleaning water. Because were now using Amendment 1 money to fund existing programs that we previously funded through the general revenue, we dont have these funds available to pay for outstanding programs urgently needed, like buying lands in the Everglades Agricultural Area (south of Lake Okeechobee), which is imperative for restoring the Everglades, says Jennifer Hecker, director of Natural Resource Policy for the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. And as for leaving key lands in private hands, its a slippery slope, she warns. The permanent solution is to purchase those lands because you cant live without their storage and (filtering) capacity. Its very dangerous to try to privatize clean-up. Critics liken that approach to the fox guarding the hen house, while acknowledging that many landowners do deeply care about the environment. But they have cared in the past, too, and still sold crucial lands to developers. Several environmental groups, therefore, have sued the legislature to force it to use Amendment 1 monies properly, as they see it.The ongoing battleOn Thursday last week, lawyers defending legislators in an ongoing lawsuit aimed at forcing them to put at least $222 million from the revenue of this single year into land acquisition denied each claim of the environmental groups challenging them. David Guest, the managing attorney for Earthjustice Florida, one of the plaintiffs in the suit, said that in spite of some improvement in the coming years spending pattern, when legislators will increase Amendment 1 monies aimed at land purchases, more than half of money available will be spent on accounting gimmicks, instead. You thought, we thought, I thought we were buying land and restoring things. Instead we got air-conditioned buildings full of state employees that already had jobs thats what were paying for. Land that could help clean the water isnt being purchased by the state because many legislators simply dont like the idea, says Ms. Hecker. Its no secret that the legislature wasnt supportive of Amendment 1 from the onset, she explains. So were still struggling with a lack of political will to implement the amendment in a manner consistent with voters wishes, mainly in regards to land conservation. We have to have dedicated funds to do that. The idea of dedicated funds is that you need to plan in advance for AMENDFrom page 1Everglades waterflow Historic flow Present flowGulf of Mexico Atlantic Ocean Atlantic Ocean Gulf of Mexico Lake Okeechobee Lake Okeechobee Caloosahatchee River Caloosahatchee River Florida Ba y Biscayne Bay Biscayne Bay Florida Bay Kissimmee River Kissimmee River FLORIDA FLORIDAWetlands Canals Waterow In 1948 the Central and Southern Florida Project was authorized to provide flood protection and fresh water to South Florida.

New neighbors are moving into beautifully designed villas and apartment residences. A growing community has already made this smart choice. With assurance for tomorrow, we are maximizing today every day eres still time...T btn f rr bt. If distribution were equitable (one analysts view of one region): Southwest Florida as a whole has about 10 percent of the states population, and area, also. So, if the $750 million per year in estimated money generated by the funding source (Amendment 1s cut of the real estate stamp taxes) was applied equally statewide, then Southwest Florida would get about $75 million, or about double the funds for Conservation 2020 (a county program to buy undeveloped land) at its peak, applied over an area about seven times larger ... annually. For 20 years. Since we are impacted by Lake Okeechobee, land programs in the Kissimmee and Everglades basins would bene t us and perhaps be partially tolled against us. All that is if distribution was equitable. Wayne Daltry, a planner and former head of Smart Growth multi-year efforts. If you dont know how much funding you will have available, you cant plan anything. One of the keys in saving Florida water is land, and especially the purchase of land south of Lake Okeechobee where corporate sugar growers now dominate agricultural production, says State Rep. Heather Fitzenhagen, a District 78 Republican. It is not a widely popular opinion among Republican members of the states House and Senate. There are differing views in how we solve our problems, she notes, encouraging compromise, and I dont think the state needs to open (for possible purchase) everything that is private property that might have some value to environmental preservation. But I do think we need to identify those lands that have the most value for preservation, and that have the most risk of being used for other purposes than conservation. Part of the solution must be to purchase key lands south of Lake Okeechobee, she says, where water originating near Orlando once flowed southward, filtering and cleaning itself naturally before reaching Florida Bay. Now, the 700,000-acre Everglades Agricultural Area dominated by sugar growers stands in the way. I respect the agricultural interests south of the lake, says Rep. Fitzenhagen. But because they have benefitted from certain government programs that allow them to maintain their businesses at a high level of profitability, perhaps they could see their way to give back a little quid pro quo. By give back, she means sell their land to the state so it can be restored as a natural flow-way. Government programs include the huge system of canals, pumps and water managers funded by taxpayers to allow crops to be grown in the Everglades Agricultural Area. But legislators have found ways to divert money away from land acquisitions in large part, the critics say: Theyre paying for older land purchases and programs already established on which debt remains; theyre paying for maintenance of equipment and current water systems as well as salaries of managers; theyre paying private landowners not to develop their land at least not now while theyre being paid not to; and theyre even paying to help Gov. Rick Scott satisfy his $700,000 penalty in a lawsuit for violating publics records law, as Miami Herald columnist Carl Hiaasen pointed out last August. The governor took $445,000 out of the Department of Environmental Protection monies to help pay the fine. Its another kick in the teeth for the 4 million Floridians who voted for Amendment 1, believing DEP would use newly designated revenues for the purchase and protection of conservation lands, Mr. Hiaasen wrote. Nobody dreamed that the governor even this governor would loot DEP to pay his own legal bills. As for using Amendment 1 money to support the salaries of land mangers, Land management was already built into agency budgets in no small amount, but dollars approved for (land) purchase went for that, points out Wayne Daltry, a planner, former Smart Growth director and environmental leader on the Southwest coast. Meanwhile, environmental conditions are rapidly declining, as last winters devastating algal blooms and dirty water both east and west of Lake Okeechobee attest. God, a million fish. How shocking, Mr. Reed exclaims, describing the estimated fish kill alone. The reason people live on the Indian River is for the light and color and the sunsets in the evening on those islands in one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world. Its a world treasure, but now stuff is coming out of Okeechobee and going right down the Caloosahatchee or (the St. Lucie). In addition to beauty and aesthetics, there is also the issue of survival, says John Cassani, chairman of the Southwest Florida Watershed Council. What the legislature is doing is not enough fast enough. Were about to experience another major population boom. Add climate change effects to that, and there isnt a lot of time to delay what needs to be done. For Rep. Fitzenhagen, Water is the most valuable resource in the world. Everywhere. Across the globe. If we here dont get on board and understand this, and manage it properly, the consequences are likely to be dire. Rep. Caldwell agrees with her, he says, but the issues of implementation will have to be worked out. For Mr. Reed, the half-century champion of a cleaner Florida and a cleaner nation, Amendment 1 remains a chance to correct some significant mistakes of the past. Were being overrun by development, he says. But by using Amendment 1 we can buy in. We can create big green zones, little green ones, green zones around cities to protect unique habitat. There are plenty of them that need to be created. And in creating them, perhaps, we create our future, he insists, echoing the sentiments of many, who acknowledge that development will continue. Our future depends on molding that development to protect the watershed. We must protect our water. That is the number one issue for Amendment 1. FITZENHAGEN CASSANI

Luckily for us in Naples, a new group called Storytellers of the Round Table is bringing back the tradition of storytelling with events that are growing in popularity. We snagged an interview with Mary Lou Williams, one of the groups star performers, to tell us about oral narratives and how she became a storyteller. Describe the first time you encountered storytelling as an art form. In 1992, my husband and I went on an Elderhostel to Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C. Appalachia is the area in the United States where storytelling has remained alive and thriving into the 21st century. I took a class in Appalachian folklore and was spellbound. This was the first time I encountered storytelling as an art form. It was also the first time I became aware that there was a world of storytelling for adults as well as children. I joined Toastmasters to improve my public speaking skills and, when I graduated to advanced manuals, I chose storytelling because I thought it would enhance my nutrition lectures. It turned out that everyone liked my stories more than the lectures. It still didnt occur to me to become a storyteller until a friend thought I would be good at it and suggested I do it. I had the stories I had developed for completing the Toastmasters storytelling manual and I had the time. In 2006, I called up all the retirement communities I found in the yellow pages and offered to tell stories. I have been telling ever since. How did you study or train? Besides Toastmasters, I joined the Tamiami Tale Tellers, a guild of storytellers based in Fort Myers. I also joined the Florida Storytelling Association, which puts on a festival each year in Mount Dora. And I finally went to the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tenn. The best way to learn to be a good storyteller is to listen to good storytellers. You hear the very best at these festivals. What are the elements of a spokenword story that make it compelling? They are story and telling elements are equally important. A good story must have conflict and a turning point leading to change. A good telling must have vocal variety, facial expressions, gestures, eye contact and movement. A good teller must be a good actor. Do you have a favorite genre? If so, why? Yes, I do. It is the fractured fairy tale a classic like Cinderella or Snow White that keeps the basic plot and characters of the original story, but changes it in unexpected ways for a modern perspective. This is my favorite genre because there are universal human truths in fairy tales, and fracturing them is a way to make the stories more relevant to the modern age. This can make the tales not only relevant, but also humorous. How did Storytellers of the Round Table begin, and what does it do in Naples? Toastmaster Tashahara Jallad founded the group, inviting other Toastmasters who were interested to meet once a month to pursue our craft. We perform at Brambles English Tea Room in Naples and take part in story slams at member Dr. Joel Yings office and at the Sugden Community Theatre. How do you develop your material? Do you rehearse? There are four sources of storytelling for storytellers besides their imagination: traditional tales or folk tales, literary stories that have been written and are meant to be read, historical stories based on real events, and personal stories about the life experience of the teller or someone the teller knows. The Storytellers of the Round Table use these sources of material and tell them to each other for feedback. There is a lot of rehearsal before a story is ready for performance. How useful are props? Do you have favorites? I love props and I find them very useful for enhancing some stories. I use puppets. One of my favorites is a black cat I use for a story called Wimpy, the Cat with Low Self-Esteem. Another is a big, ugly toad I use in telling Kermit, the Frog Prince. And a neon pink convertible with false eyelashes on the headlights is the star of Lolita, My Teenage Car. Where can people in Naples see you perform next? The Storytellers of the Round Table perform from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, May 12, at Brambles English Tea Room. Well be telling stories in honor of Mothers Day. In addition, I will present a class about writing and telling personal stories from 1-3 p.m. Tuesday, July 19, at the Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning at Hodges University.

For more information about the foundation, contact Amanda Beights at Pickleball players will vie for first U.S. Open Championships in NaplesMore than 1,000 pickleball players are expected to convene for the first-ever U.S. Open Pickleball Championships set for April 26-May 1 at East Naples Community Park. Minto Communities has signed on as title sponsor for the next three years, with the goal to make the tournament an ongoing annual event. Its the perfect partnership, USOPC founder and President Terri Graham says about Mintos involvement. Mintos target audience is our target audience, she adds. Sixty-eight percent of pickleball players are over age 55. There is a perfect correlation between our audience and Mintos homebuyers. Isles of Collier Preserve east of Naples and TwinEagles in North Naples are among the developers Southwest Florida communities. We anticipated the growing popularity of this sport and have included pickleball courts in our newest communities, William Bullock, senior vice president for the developer, says. Considered by many to be Americas fastest growing sport, pickleball combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. Two, three or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball similar to a wiffle ball over a net. The inaugural tournament will have divisions for men, women, mixed, junior and wheelchair players. VIP seating, parties and live entertainment, fundraising activities and a Kids Day are also planned. Ms. Graham notes that organizers estimate 10,000 spectators will attend the championships.

Visitors will be able to admire adoptable kittens alongside the stores gems and treasures (although anyone who wants to adopt a kitten will have to complete the process at the NCA shelter). Savory and sweet fingers foods and beverages will be served. Donations of cat food and litter will be welcome, as will financial contributions to help the all-volunteer NCA buy supplies (litter and Friskies dry and canned food) and keep up with rent at the Davis Boulevard shelter and pay veterinary bills for services (check-ups, vaccinations, spay/neuter procedures and emergency procedures) at Harborside Animal Clinic and Emergency Pet Hospital of Collier County. Those who give donations will have the opportunity to name an adoptable kitten. Most cats are conceived and born between April-November. During this time, NCA faces an increased need to trap pregnant feral cats so that they have a safe place to deliver and care for their litter until the kittens reach an adoptable age. Both mother and kittens are spayed/neutered to help cut down on the overpopulation of unwanted cats before they become adoptable. For more information, call (424) 835-1523 or visit or follow the organization on Facebook.


A14 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY AARP Auto Insurance Program from The Hartford SEE HOW MUCH YOU COULD SAVE! PLA033-1Robert Wright Robert Wright Insurance Agency239-566-3990 REDUCING ATHLETES CONCUSSION RISKEveryone from young soccer players to professional football players is vulnerable to concussions, which has become an issue of great concern. One way that parents can reduce their childrens risk of experiencing a sports-related concussion is to have them outtted with custommade, properly tted mouth guards that dentists provide. According to a study of more than 400 high school football players, those wearing store-bought, over-the-counter mouth guards were more than twice as likely to suer mild traumatic brain injuries (MTBIs)/concussions than those wearing custom-t mouth guards. Previous research has speculated that mouth guards can reduce concussion risk by helping absorb shock, stabilize the head and neck, and limit movement caused by a direct hit to the jaw. We want you to receive complete and aordable dental care of the highest quality. We can suggest the mouth guard that is best for you. Please call us at 239-262-6000 to schedule an appointment.

A native of the farmlands of Ghana, Ms. Wajoli arrived in Fort Myers with her American husband in 2010 seeking a better life, but instead faced many serious struggles. The mentorship she received from Dress for Success SW Florida while living in an ACT shelter helped her turn her life around.

Many Southwest Floridians have already delighted in Ms. Wajolis exquisite handcrafted Wajoli African Wear jewelry using locally sourced materials and the colorful clothing, sandals and baskets she sells from women in Ghana. All the proceeds from the event support the continued advancement of Dress for Success SW Floridas programs.

That means, in total, women in Florida lose nearly $17 billion every year, which is money that could strengthen the state economy and the financial security of Floridas women and families, including the nearly 960,000 Florida households headed by women. These are some of the findings of a new analysis conducted by the National Partnership for Women & Families and released for Equal Pay Day, which was April 12. The analysis spans all 50 states, all 435 congressional districts in the country, and the District of Columbia. It can be found at Gap. The full set of findings for Florida is included. These findings include that, for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men in Florida, African American women, Latinas and Asian women who work full time, year round are paid 61 cents, 59 cents and 74 cents, respectively. This analysis is a sobering reminder of the serious harm the wage gap causes women and families all across the country, said Debra L. Ness, president of the National Partnership. At a time when womens wages are so critical to the economic well-being of families, the country is counting on lawmakers to work together to advance the fair and family friendly workplace policies that would promote equal pay. There is no time to waste. According to the new analysis, if the gap between womens and mens wages in Florida were eliminated, each woman who holds a full-time, year-round job in the state could afford to buy food for one more year, pay for mortgage and utilities for five more months, or pay rent for more than six additional months. Basic necessities such as these would be particularly important for the 29 percent of Floridas woman-headed households currently living below the poverty level. Florida is not the only state with a wage gap. In fact, every state and 98 percent of the countrys congressional districts have one. The National Partnerships national analysis finds that the 10 states with the largest centson-the-dollar wage gaps in the country from largest to smallest are Louisiana, Utah, Wyoming, West Virginia, North Dakota, Alabama, Idaho, Oklahoma, Montana and Michigan. A ranking of all 50 states and the District of Columbia can be found here. Nationally, women who are employed full time, year round are paid, on average, 79 cents for every dollar paid to men. The gap is larger for AfricanAmerican women and Latinas, who are paid 60 cents and 55 cents, respectively, for every dollar paid to white, nonHispanic men. For Asian women in the United States, the gap is smaller but persists. On average, Asian women are paid 84 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men, although some ethnic subgroups fare much worse. It is unacceptable that the wage gap has persisted, punishing the countrys women and families for decades, Ms. Ness continued. Some state lawmakers have taken steps to address the issue by passing legislation to combat discriminatory pay practices and provide other workplace supports. It is past time for federal lawmakers to do the same. We need Congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act, which is a common sense proposal that has languished for much too long. Currently before Congress, the Paycheck Fairness Act would close loopholes in the Equal Pay Act, help to break patterns of pay discrimination, and establish stronger workplace protections for women. The National Partnership argues that the bill, along with other supportive policies such as paid sick days, paid family and medical leave, minimum wage increases, fair scheduling and protections for pregnant workers are what is needed to close the gap and should be top priorities for lawmakers. Equal Pay Day marks how far into the new year women must work in order to catch up with what men were paid the year before. The analysis uses data from the U.S. Census Bureau. The findings for each state, along with state rankings, are available at NationalPartnership. org/Gap.

Body-modification exemplarEva Tiamat Medusa, 55, of the Phoenix area, has almost completed her journey (she calls it transspecieism) to become a mythical beast like a dragon video-game character through purposeful facial scarring, surgical implants and even removal of both ears. Tiamat was born Richard Hernandez before becoming female and now sports such features as reptilian-style skin scales, greencolored whites of the eyes, horns on her forehead and, of course, breasts. Government in action The Pentagon admitted recently that it has no way to know how many parts or devices are in its equipment inventory except by going through its estimated 30 million contracts (on the text-unsearchable electronic database) one by one. For a recent Freedom of Information request from a software developer (for the Pentagons number of HotPlug power-extenders for computers), it quoted a retrieval price of $660 million to cover 15 million hours of work. Wait, What? (1) The most recent problem with the Defense Departments prospective, ultra-modern F-35 fighter jet, revealed in March, is that its radar control sometimes malfunctions and that system updates will not be ready until 2020. In the interim, an Air Force official advised that, as a workaround, the radar could be turned off and then back on again (similar to restarting a glitchy computer). (2) Michael Ford, 36, a U.S. Embassy staff member in London, was sentenced in March to 57 months in prison for having run a sextortion email scheme preying on young girls from his heavily monitored embassy computer workstation, operating undetected for two years. (One workday last April, for example, he sent 800 emails from his desk phishing for gullible social media users.)Police reportMs. Charli Jones Parker, a teacher and girls basketball coach at the Pickens Academy (Pickens County, Ala.) was arrested on March 28 and charged with having sex with an underage male student. Her husband, James Parker, a math teacher and coach at Pickens, was arrested two days later and charged with having sex with an underage female former student. The district attorney said the incidents were unrelated and resulted from separate investigations.Leading economic indicators Inequality on Parade: (1) The city council in Palo Alto, Calif., trying to retain some of its Silicon Valley nonmillionaires, proposed a subsidy plan in March to help with steep housing costs. In a town where tiny homes sell for $2 million (and are immediately knocked down and rebuilt), subsidies will be available even to families earning $250,000 a year. (2) In February, a family court in England reduced the child-support payments from hedge fund financier Christopher Rokos to the mother of his 7-year-old son from the equivalent of about $17,000 a month to about $11,300 though that amount includes more than $1,200 a month for wine (perhaps, in case the kid is a handful). The giant HSBC Bank, which was let off the hook in 2012 for its money-laundering by paying a $1.9 billion settlement and promising to vigilantly guard against future money laundering, was revealed in March to be regressing. HSBCs monitor said that the bank somehow failed to stop transactions by a company whose professed business included exporting miniskirts to Iran (which would be against international sanctions but also not exactly smart business). In another incident, a 19-yearold Mexican man in the drug-cartelintensive Sinaloa state was allowed to open a private-wealth account with just a bagful of cash, claiming to be a shrimp farmer.Latest religious messagesIn March, Kingdom Church, in the south London district of Camberwell, was fined the equivalent of about $10,900 by the Southwark Council for its amplified music and incessant loud preaching, ritually performed almost daily at around 3 a.m. A spokesperson told the London Evening Standard that the timing was necessary because that is when evil spirits are most likely to be present.Scientific breakthroughsDownloads and Uploads: (1) A new weight-loss device being tested in the U.S. (AspireAssist) is billed as a lessexpensive alternative to bariatric surgery, with the ability to evacuate up to 30 percent of recently eaten food from the stomach before digestion. A tube, through a port in the stomach, sucks (aspirates) the food. (2) Researchers at HRL Laboratories in California, in a recent journal article, reported that test subjects without airplane-pilot knowledge nonetheless performed flight simulations 33 percent better than a control group after the researchers uploaded electrical signals to certain piloting-helpful areas of their brains.O Canada!Latest Behavior Standards: (1) The town council in Bracebridge, Ontario, approved a new municipal bylaw in March ending existing prohibitions on people engaging in yelling, shouting, hooting or similar noises. (Other noise controls, such as on audio devices, or by humans between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., remain in effect.) (2) Also in March, the city council in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, was considering a proposed anti-bullying bylaw prohibiting gossip or (according to the National Post) rumor-mongering, name-calling, taunting, mocking and ostracizing not only in the streets and parks but in public places such as bars and restaurants.

BEHIND THE WHEELThe Buick Cascada: A laid-back turbo droptop thats good but not great Incorrect perceptions of Florida and Buick go hand-in-hand: Those in colder climates often think of the Sunshine State as home to retirees in LeSabre sedans with the turn signal welded in the on position. We know better, and so does Buick. It only takes a frozen winter to change our states stodgy image, but a car company needs to be a bit more proactive. Thats why the new Cascada is a car we want to love. A convertible is a great way to be both mature and exciting at the same time something thats good for Florida and needed at Buick. The exterior hit its mark quite well. This is not much more than a European Opel with a Buick badge. In fact, most of Buicks best vehicles come from the German arm of General Motors. What the Opel connection does is give the Cascada a distinctive front end with crisp lines, something not shared with any other brand in the U.S. Inside there are more benefits from the relationship with Opel. Materials on the center console feel like nice quality pieces, and the backup camera provides some of the best detail on the market. The layout is Germanic, allowing for very precise control over everyday features such as climate control. Overall the presentation is a bit aged, however, as Opel has been offering this design for nearly a decade. So when it came time to insert for updates like a touchscreen infotainment system, it seems a little awkwardly placed, and there are leftover b uttons w hen the space on the dash was just a display screen. The operation of the droptop is simple and quite nice: It takes one switch and less than 20 seconds to go from completely enclosed to Hello, world! Its so quick and easy, the decision to let the sunshine in can be made and executed at a stoplight and without ever leaving the drivers seat.On the road, the Cascada cant help but feel very mature. The only motor available across the lineup is a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 200 hp. A low displacement, large turbo powerplant is usually the key ingredient for hijinks, but not here. Creating a convertible means adding some serious metal to the body to ensure the strength thats usually provided by a fixed roof. The extra weight is actually a bit of good news on the road, because it gives the convertible a feeling of a substantial car that doesnt get blown around in the wind.Where this mass doesnt help is with power and economy. The motor feels good for all occasions, including the highway, but it will never have that rush of acceleration often associated with a turbo. In fact, the engine is boosting power for so many situations that fuel economy is 20/27 mpg city/highway average for the segment, but wed expect more from this kind of motor. None of this is of fatal concern. It just means shoppers might start looking around at the competition. And the Cascadas price doesnt help in that department. The base version starts at $33,990, including freight charges (every option box checked will get the Cascada slightly above $37K.) This places Buicks convertible in between a new Ford Mustang convertible and a used BMW 328i droptop. But both of these are sports cars, and the Cascada is aiming more for a comfortable cruising clientele. In fact, this is more of a direct competitor to the Volkswagen Eos. The Cascada feels more updated than VWs 10-year-old convertible, but the Eos offers a folding hardtop for slightly less money. Volkswagen dealers are even willing to make deals on their car because the line will be killed off in a few months. See where the problem is starting here? Convertibles are about buying something interesting and fun. The Cascada is good but not great. Buick needs a car with the kind of distinction that makes people say Yes! instantly. No doubt plenty of Floridians will buy and enjoy the Cascada. We just know on our beautifully sunny days, its easy to walk across the street to the other dealers, too.

A26 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYhow they found the senior when they call in. In all, 1,260 Silver Alerts have been issued with most missing drivers recovered safely. As time passes after someone goes missing, state law enforcement expands the range of the electronic signs in the area where the missing driver was last seen to account for driving time. The signs remain in effect for six hours. The missing persons picture is also displayed at Lottery terminals. A community wide BOLO (be on the lookout) is issued through the media. After a missing senior is recovered, health care professionals at local memory disorder centers contact the families and caregivers by phone and in person if possible. They provide information, resources and recommendations for handling aging-related memory disorders such as Alzheimers, the most common form of dementia. For some seniors who are recovered safely and their caregivers, a Silver Alert can be a wake-up call. Some may be just beginning to see signs of dementia and it can start conversations about how to best deal with memory impairment going forward and issues such as quitting driving, in-home care or finding an assisted living facility. In some cases yes, a Silver Alert can be a wake-up call, said Sunny Rosbrugh, practice director of Lee Physician Group Memory Care, which handles Silver Alert followups for Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties. In other cases there is still a degree of denial that goes along with family caregivers and the patient. Ms. Rosbrugh has found that most people went missing on the way to complete a simple errand such as going to the bank, post office, or to pick up medication. Sometimes patients are recovered far from Southwest Florida. One was recovered in Texas, another in Georgia, another in the Florida Keys. Law enforcement is very good at working with several agencies to track whereabouts, she said.Lost on FootLaw enforcement and elder advocates say there are even greater instances of seniors who wander away from home on foot or even in a wheelchair. Theyre working with state agencies this year to expand Silver Alert protocols to include a Lost on Foot program that gives local law enforcement another tool to find the missing. We have found that a majority, probably 50 percent of people now actually go missing from a caregivers home on foot and they are usually a mile or two miles from their house, said Lt. Kevin OBrien with the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office in an informational video. He encourages caregivers to call as soon as they find out a senior with memory problems has gone missing, ideally within the first five minutes or less. Alzheimers Community Care, a nonprofit covering Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties, helped develop Silver Alert training for law enforcement agencies. Its taking the lead in expanding the Lost on Foot program as well, with the program now being piloted in the three-county area. Several officers respond to look for a person reported missing. They also call 211, the general assistance hotline, to spread the word among other local agencies. We knew it was a problem. We just didnt know how bad it was, said CEO Mary Barnes. Now theyre collecting that data, and were becoming more aware of the incidents. The Department of Elder Affairs estimates that more than 510,000 individuals in Florida are living with Alzheimers disease and related dementias, and that 60 percent of Alzheimers patients will wander at least once. The need for these programs continues to rise, said spokesperson Ashley Chambers, with the population of those 60 or older in Florida, now 4.8 million, expected to nearly double by 2030. Lost and foundMemory-impaired drivers continue to be recovered every month after Silver Alerts are issued: On March 22, a 79-year-old woman last seen in Lauderhill was recovered in West Palm Beach. On March 4, a 79-year-old male last seen in Port Charlotte was recovered in Satellite Beach. Last September, a 90-year-old Fort Myers man was recovered near his home. I think its a wonderful thing, said Naples resident Dorothy Collier, 88, about Silver Alerts. Last year on the morning of November 30, her husband Paul went to fill a prescription at Walgreens only about a quarter mile from home and didnt return. He ended up being recovered by the Florida Highway Patrol in Fort Myers that night. He didnt have a phone on him or GPS. At some point, someone had written out directions for him to get home, which he had on him but wasnt able to follow. He had experienced memory loss before but his condition was undiagnosed at that point. It was getting dark already and the police got a call that this couple were riding down, they saw the Silver Alert on I-75 and they noticed it was the same plate as the car in front of them, Ms. Collier said. He had been to Fort Lauderdale and he didnt even remember. And he was just trying to get home and couldnt quite get it. After the incident, he followed up with his doctor and was diagnosed with dementia. They decided he would quit driving, so Ms. Collier is the chauffeur these days. Silver Alert is funded by a state grant through the Department of Elder Affairs, $190,000 as the program was just getting started. This years grant was $51,000. The program is a partnership that includes Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the lead agency, Elder Affairs, the Department of Transportation, and local police and sheriffs departments.

Having Cataract Surgery was a breeze. My vision is clear again. I dont have to ask my buddies to watch my tee shots.Rich Lamb Local Golf Pro, Cataract PatientNCH town hall meeting covers various topicsWe covered a lot of ground at our NCH in-house town hall meetings recently. We not only discussed many topics but also spanned a broad geographic area, from Bonita to Marco Island and east to our new freestanding emergency room on Immokalee Road and Collier Boulevard. Here are few of the things we covered and will also present at our annual medical staff meeting later this month. We introduced the two newest members of the NCH leadership team: Chief Financial Officer Rick Wyles and Chief Experience Officer Gary Tomcik. Together they have more than 60 years of experience and bring new ideas and energy to NCH. We shared news of some recent quality awards, including Healthgrades Top 5 Percent for the nation, which cites only seven Florida institutions, among them our downtown NCH Baker Hospital, our North Naples hospital and Mayo Jacksonville. Mr. Wyles shared admissions data for the fiscal year showing we are up 3.4 percent over last year. Emergency department visits are up 8 percent, with 73 percent of our overall admissions coming through the ER. Employment data show our fulltime equivalents, or the number of people helping us help the community, are up 10.1 percent. Operating income (the excess we make to reinvest in the healthcare system) is on track with budget but behind last year due to the increased number of colleagues and increased wages. Nonetheless, we still plan to reinvest more than $56 million in improvements next year as we renovate operating rooms, finish the cardiac cath labs, add a biplane hybrid operating suite, move the open heart surgery suite and start construction on a new intensive care unit, all in the Baker Hospital. Chief Development Officer Jim Martin noted that our board of trustees approved $367 million for capital improvements from 2010-18. Few systems our size have the ability and the desire to reinvest so heavily with minimal borrowing. Thats quite an achievement. Chief Nursing Officer Michele Thoman presented a visual tour of the Modified ketogenic diet slows growth of cancer tumors in research mice THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAUniversity of Florida researchers have slowed a notoriously aggressive type of brain tumor in mouse models by using a low-carbohydrate diet. A high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that included a coconut oil derivative helped reduce the growth of glioblastoma tumor cells and extended lifespan in mouse models by 50 percent, researchers found. The results were published recently in the journal Clinical Cancer Research. Glioblastoma, the most common brain tumor in adults, has no effective long-term treatment; on average, patients live for 12-15 months after diagnosis, according to the National Cancer Institute. The findings are a new twist on an old idea: The so-called ketogenic diet has been used for nearly 90 years to help reduce epileptic seizures. Now, a high-fat, low-carbohydrate version of the ketogenic diet has been shown to slow glioblastoma tumors by cutting back on the energy supply they need to thrive, said Brent Reynolds, Ph.D., a professor in the Lillian S. Wells Department of Neurosurgery at UF. A glioblastoma tumor requires large amounts of energy as it grows, and the dietary intervention works by drastically limiting the tumors supply of glucose, Mr. Reynolds said. While this is an effective treatment in our preclinical animal models, it is not a cure. However, our results are promising enough that the next step is to test this in humans, he added. The modified diet used in the test included a coconut oil derivative known as a medium-chain triglyceride, which plays a crucial role because it replaces some carbohydrates as an energy source. Mr. Reynolds said the modified high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet also has another distinct advantage: Cancer patients could potentially find it more palatable because they can eat more carbohydrates and protein than they could on a classic ketogenic diet. When youre sick, you need as many comforts in your life as you can get, and food is a huge comfort. Thats the idea: Could we develop a beneficial diet but make it much easier for patients? Using human-derived glioblastoma cells in a mouse models, researchers found that the modified high-fat, lowcarbohydrate diet increased life expectancy by 50 percent while also reducing tumor progression by a similar amount. In addition to diminishing the tumors energy supply, the diet slowed the growth of glioblastoma cells by altering a cellular-signaling pathway that commonly occurs in cancers, according to the researchers. The modified diet provided just 10 percent of its calories from carbohydrates, compared with 55 percent of calories from carbohydrates in a control group. While both the ketogenic and modified high-fat, low-carbohydrate diets showed similar effectiveness against tumors in the mouse models, Mr. Reynolds said, the latter is more nutritionally complete and potentially more appealing to cancer patients because it offers more food choices. Although researchers dont yet know exactly why it was effective, Mr. Reynolds said preliminary data show that the modified diet also appears to make glioblastoma tumors more sensitive to treatment with radiation and chemotherapy. He sees the diet as a supplemental therapy that could complement chemotherapy and radiation. While more research is needed, the diet could also be a potentially effective secondary treatment for other cancers, such as those affecting the breast, lung and pancreas, he said. This simple dietary approach may be able to reduce tumor progression and enhance standard of care treatments in cancers that are highly metabolically active, he said. Next, he wants to start testing the modified high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet in a clinical trial. It typically takes many years to initiate such trials because of the stringent safety testing that must be done before testing in humans begins, but he said it might be possible to move faster because the therapy only involves modifying a patients dietary intake and supplementing with a medium-chain triglyceride oil, both of which have no known side effects.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2016 A29 Cosmetic surgery has long been the secret weapon of women who want to look as young as they feel. Now men are catching on to their secret; each year male patients account for a growing percentage of all facial surgeries performed in the US. It might (or might not) surprise you to learn that men and women both tend to choose similar procedures, though they may arrive at these choices in different ways. As a specialist in aesthetic facial surgery for over twenty years, Dr. Patrick Flaharty understands that men seek treatments for different reasons than women, and may want to achieve different goals. While women tend to choose procedures to achieve subtle results that often require maintenance over time, men generally seek one-and-done treatments that produce immediately perceptible results. Azul offers a range of facial plastic surgeries and other procedures customized for men, including non-invasive skin treatments. thing people look at to determine a mans age, health and alertness. Sagging eyelids and wrinkles at the corners can add years to your perceived age, and make you look more tired or upset. Since men are far less likely than women to follow a skincare regimen or use of aging, it makes sense that eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty, in medical terms) is a popular option for men over 50. Excess skin is removed from the upper and/or lower eyelids to alleviate the effects of time and gravity. The procedure may also involve removing or adding fat to smooth out bags and wrinkles, while preserving your vigorous, masculine look. Eyelid surgery is often combined with an endoscopic brow lift, which is the best surgical option to minimize deep lines and creases on the forehead. The facelift, of course, is a classic favorite, not only for women, but for men as well. In 2015, 12% of all facelifts done in the US were performed on men and theyre expected to catch up to women within the next decade. Dr. Flaharty uses his expertise in facial plastic surgery to tighten the skin of the cheeks, jawline and neck. Azul even has a specustomized mens neck lifts that get rid of excess skin and fat. Chin and cheek enhancements are also popular among men natural-looking, masculine facial contours. Depending on your skin condition and other factors, Dr. Flaharty may advise trying decide on a more permanent surgical procedure. about which facial surgeries and treatments can give you the to help you stay at the top of your game professionally and romantically. Dr. Flaharty and his team also understand that discretion is especially important to men who choose cosmetic facial surgery, and will provide the best care to ensure that youre back on your feet as quickly as possible, with no one the wiser (unless, of course, you tell them).

PET TALESDogs and cats perfect partners in the fictional pursuit of crime BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickCozy or noir? Thriller or mystery? Talking cat or working dog? Whatever your poison in literary murder and mayhem, theres a book for you. And chances are good that a dog or cat is a character in his own right, either as a fourfooted detective or as a sidekick to a human protagonist. Think Lilian Jackson Brauns Siamese sleuths Koko and Yum Yum, who first made an appearance some 50 years ago; or feline Mrs. Murphy, her Persian nemesis Pewter and their corgi buddy Tee Tucker in the Mrs. Murphy series by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown. Editors and agents used to tell authors that a pet viewpoint worked only for childrens books, but from Braun on, writers have proven them wrong. It takes having a well-known and successful name author to take the plunge and show its something readers like before it becomes a trend, says Amy Shojai, author of three thrillers featuring German shepherd service dog Shadow. James Rollins (a veterinarian-turned-writer) was one of the first best-selling thriller authors to include an animal viewpoint in his work, with a war dog partnered with an exmilitary man. Robert Crais followed with a similar war dog-type character partnered with a damaged-cop character.In her own series, Ms. Shojai, drawing on her background as a behavior consultant, wanted a viewpoint dog character with some chapters told from his perspective.Not as a human-in-a-fur-suit, but as I perceived a dog might truly think and behave and with motivations suitable to a canine, she says. Ms. Shojais fellow author Clea Simon has written 20 mysteries, all featuring cats. Ms. Simon began her career as a journalist, and along the way she realized she could combine her love of writing with her interest in and appreciation for cats. Her third nonfiction book, The Feline Mystique, explored the relationship between women and cats. That was sort of the kickoff for my catrelated mysteries, she says. At first, Ms. Simon went the traditional route. In her first series, featuring music journalist Theda Krakow and her cat Musetta, cats didnt talk at least, not in English. But after that, I realized that we all talk to our pets, and we all imagine how our animals respond, she says. That led her to explore different ways of including a cats viewpoint. One is her Dulcie Schwartz mystery series, which lead with the information that the characters cat, Mr. Gray, has died. He returns to her as a friendly ghost who is a comforting and wise presence. Ms. Simons newest mystery, The Ninth Life, is narrated by a feral black cat that is saved from drowning by a homeless girl. Its a dark tale with a mean-streets vibe, a transition from the cozy, amateur-sleuth territory of her first books. In both instances, Ms. Simon explores her interest in the relationship between people and cats. If you read Ms. Shojai or Ms. Simon or other authors who include animals in their plots its not unusual to find arcana about dog shows, training or animal behavior. Many writers find their work to be a way of delving into some of the issues or controversies surrounding animals. Ms. Shojai covered dog fighting in her latest, Show and Tell, and Ms. Simon addressed animal hoarding in Mew Is for Murder and puppy and kitten mills in Cattery Row. One of the rules I live by, though, is that I could never seriously hurt or kill an animal in a book, Ms. Simon says. Ms. Shojai is on the same page. I dont write dog abuse scenes, she says. Instead, she highlights the setting, fight paraphernalia and laws and issues surrounding the crime. Whats the pleasure in reading a mystery with purr-sonality or canine charisma? I think mysteries that feature or involve animals mirror real life, Ms. Shojai says. Readers identify with the hero of the book who cares deeply about a pet.

If youre not active on Facebook, you probably had a normal Sunday perhaps sunning at the beach, going to brunch or watching Jordan Spieths epic meltdown at the Masters in Augusta on TV. But if youre even half as devoted to Facebook as my 90-year-old step-grandma, then theres no way National Siblings Day slipped past you. My newsfeed was a flood of brotherly and sisterly love. Photos galore of little siblings in front of Christmas trees in the 0s, teenage siblings in Sears family portraits from the s, young adult siblings at weddings in the s and middle-aged brothers and sisters at recent holiday gatherings. According to Google, National Sibling Day has been around since 2005, but I think it escaped many of us until Facebook started celebrating it. And by celebrating I mean posting a photo of yourself and your siblings and adding as your status: Happy National Siblings Day. I mean, its not on my American Express calendar or anything. In other words, I think National Siblings Day just might be the first official holiday thats only celebrated on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Next year, Ill check the greeting-card aisle at CVS to see if there are any actual National Sibling Day greeting cards, but I think the odds are slim. What if you have, like, six siblings? Youd be very busy licking stamps. Anyway, Im normally quite the joiner when it comes to online group activities. Im all over Throwback Thursday, Flashback Friday, Man Crush Monday and Woman Crush Wednesday, for example. But I was left on the sidelines for National Siblings Day. Whereas 79 percent of all the children in the United States have siblings, Im not one of them. I could have posted a photo of my children, but I have only one; even my mother was an only child. Personally, I like to think were the sort of lineage that stops when we know weve gotten it perfect. That said, I felt some pangs of jealousy when I saw all these happy siblings with their shared experiences, memories and genes. One friends picture of herself with her sister and brother was accompanied by this: Look! We all have the same nose! I kind of wished I shared a nose with somebody. It all got me to wondering why theres not a National Only Child Day, a day when I could post pictures of me and all of my Christmas presents, or me and the bathroom I didnt have to share with anyone, or me getting away with stuff because there was no one to tattletale on me. But, when I Googled National Only Child Day, all I was able to find was a Facebook page where a bunch of only children (feeling left out, as usual) are demanding that the House of Representatives dedicate a day to them. Its true, we only children can tend to be whiny and spoiled. There was one very sweet surprise on National Siblings Day, though, and that was when my childhood friend Amy posted a photo of me, herself, her sister Amanda and their mom Judy from when they were visiting here from Ohio last summer and wrote: Sisters from a different mama. And I realized that Amy and I had tons of pictures of ourselves together when we were little girls in the 0s, and we had shared experiences and memories, if not genes (although Id love to have Amys nose its one of those cute, pert, ski-slope noses that ladies take pictures of to their plastic surgeons). And I thought of my other siblings Liz, Michael, Terry, Mickey and more the family I wasnt born with, but that I chose. Maybe Ill start lobbying on Facebook for a National Chosen Family Day, because thats exactly what we need more made-up holidays. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week COURTESY PHOTOThe author as a toddler surrounded by her Christmas gifts (including a real puppy she didnt have to share with anyone).

BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.comLike everything else these days, season, as Floridians have long called the manna from (not heaven) the North or Europe that rolls in to create robust local economies each year, came and went swiftly.Or in the case of Palm Beach County, is still coming and going, also swiftly.We are aiming for an endless season, by implementing strategic marketing campaigns in our target markets to build and maintain strong destination awareness especially during the summer months, says Ashley Svarney, director of public relations and communication for Discover the Palm Beaches, the official tourism marketing corporation for Palm Beach County.Since December, the Palm Beaches have already added 600 hotel rooms to its diverse hotel inventory, including the new Hilton West Palm Beach convention center hotel, and were expecting a total of 1,000 new hotel rooms to be added by the end of 2016. January and February were both positive in terms of room nights sold, and were cautiously optimistic about the tourism outlook for 2016 and 2017. Such reports are pleasing, but so are good numbers: Bed taxes, for example. Hotel occupancy rates, head counts. Those indicators on both the east and west coasts of the Sunshine State faced several unpredictable factors during season this year, and in January and February appeared flattened when compared to Tourism officials optimistic as season draws to close in Southwest Florida; Palm Beach still drawing visitors.SEE SUN, B4 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE LOCAL BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE INDUSTRIES B1SECTIONWEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2016 INSIDE The Fool knowsWhat is a unit investment trust?

The NCSA and BBB encourage everyone to make a thorough digital spring cleaning an annual ritual. Internet users can get a fresh start with their online life by keeping all machines clean, purging their online files, enhancing security features and ensuring that their online reputation shines.Seasonal changes always have an impact on our lives whether its the biannual changing of our clocks or swapping our skis for a baseball glove. It has also become the time to declutter and start anew, said Michael Kaiser, NCSAs executive director. Our lives have become increasingly connected and, with multiple devices, we accumulate digital clutter that needs attention. Thats why were adding a new spin on spring cleaning that can help you be more secure online, protect valuable personal information and avoid identity theft. By following our handy checklist, investing a little time each week and performing a series of simple chores, you can dramatically strengthen your security posture. In addition, your digital life will be more manageable and you will have peace of mind that you are helping protect your family and the extended online community while enjoying the Internet with greater confidence. For many years, BBB has hosted Secure Your ID Day shredding events to help consumers safely dispose of paper files they no longer need, said Mary E. Power, president and CEO of the Council of Better Business Bureaus. In recent years, many events have added electronic shredding to the mix to help consumers deal with old hard drives and other electronic data storage. We are urging more businesses, employers and institutions to join with us in hosting shred events for employees and customers to safely scrap documents and files that could be used for identity theft. This years Secure Your ID Day was April 16, but any day is a good day for digital spring cleaning. One of the hardest parts of any decluttering process is determining what to undertake first not to mention deciding who will do what. Create an action plan that assigns maintenance tasks to appropriate family members. NCSAs downloadable Digital Spring Cleaning Checklist is user-friendly and will help keep everyone organized. The checklist includes a four-week list of tasks grouped together by category. Parents are urged to get the whole family involved as some duties may be better for adults to handle and others are perfectly suited for kids. View the checklist online at digital-spring-cleaning.

We were down slightly in January and February in terms of occupancy and visitation January was very rainy for us and a mild winter in the north, which may have influenced this, says JoNell Modys, spokeswoman for the Naples, Marco Island, Everglades Convention & Visitors Bureau. But our 2015 was so strong that a slight drop is no cause for concern. There wasnt much room for growth over what happened in 2015. In February of 2015, our occupancy rate was 94 percent, and this year it was 89.1 percent. Our research consultant attributed that to a slight economic softening. You also have to take into account that our average daily room rate was higher in 2016 $353 was the average daily rate in February this year. A milder winter in the north a polar vortex, as one called it may have influenced a slight drop in hotel occupancy rates in Lee County in January and February, too, but bed taxes in Lee were up from last years, says Tamara Pigott, executive director of The Beaches at Fort Myers & Sanibel, part of the Lee Visitor & Convention Bureau. There was also the falling Canadian dollar, dirty water flooding downstream from Lake Okeechobee to affect beaches and tourists on both the Gulf and Atlantic coasts, and the challenge of the Euro to the dollar, although the Germans dont seem to be backing off, Ms. Pigott notes. She just returned in March from a week-long conference in Berlin where tourism marketers from all over the world competed, making you realize youre just a small spec on the planet. Cultivating the German market is particularly important in Lee County for two reasons, she says: one, about half of all German visitors to the state come to Lee County about 270,000 per year, or 9 percent of total visitors, nowadays. And two, those European visitors have changed the picture of season, since many of them come in August and September, boosting the out-ofseason residency rates to within about 20 percent of the in-season rates. Thats a far cry from the days when county populations on the coasts could drop by half, out of season, and many businesses closed for the duration. Collier and Charlotte counties benefit from those visits, too, says Lorah Steiner, Charlottes t ourism director, who acknowledges that counties compete against each other at home, but they compliment each other in overseas recruitments of tourists and visitors, some of whom end up buying homes or even kicking off businesses here. Were putting a lot more emphasis on (German and international) travelers, she says. They may stay in one county, but theyll visit others. The figures she watches to determine visitor health are called RevPAR, she says. Like in other Florida counties, when the numbers go flat, officials in Charlotte begin to look at revenue-per-room rates or RevPAR. So if you have 100 rooms, its how much per room youre averaging, she explains. If you start to see RevPAR increasing, its a no brainer. Its means people are willing to pay more or stay longer. But when you see numbers decline its a indicator people are tightening purse strings. It can also mean that people might not be willing to spend as freely as before. So, were watching, and ours has been a little flat for a couple of months, but its nothing to worry about. If we see a decline over three or four months, we get concerned about it. While many factors may have contributed to the early winter flattening of markets, none appear to be deeply worrisome, officials say, especially after four or five years of growth and a stellar 2015. And politics in this very unpredictable election year, which can also lead to caution and reduced spending? Fuhgetaboutit. I dont think anybody has been hit with primary-itis, suggests Laurel Baker, executive director at the Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce. On the other hand, she adds, It has not been as over the top as last year, here, either. It may be hard to beat increases in visitors to Palm Beach County from 6.3 million in 2014 to 6.9 million last year, but there should be some growth, especially since the numbers of Canadian visitors are holding steady. We prepared ourselves mentally for a downturn (after the Canadian dollar fell on hard times), but it never came, she says.

Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to or via regular mail c/o Florida Weekly, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Fools SchoolIf youre looking for new holdings for your stock portfolio, its natural to seek impressive financial statements and to want top-notch management. It can seem relatively easy to discern the first and relatively hard to spot the latter, though. But you can actually tell a lot about management by examining financial statements because well-run companies tend to present strong numbers. For example, in a companys annual report or latest earnings report, check out the balance sheet. Is there more longterm debt than cash? Many companies carry a lot of debt successfully, but others borrow more than they can easily repay. (Interest rates on debt are often found in footnotes, and the lower, the better.) When looking at the income statement (aka the statement of operations), do you see sales and earnings growing relatively consistently? If so, that suggests that management has been planning and executing its strategy well, encountering few surprises.Ideally, profit margins will be fat, or at least fatter than competitors and growing. To increase margins, the business must be run more efficiently, perhaps via cost cutting. Growing operating margins reflect a company thats keeping more profit from each dollar of sales. In a period of slowing sales growth, savvy managers can sometimes maintain earnings growth momentum by increasing margins.A companys return on equity (ROE) can also help you spot good management. It measures how well the company is using its reinvested earnings to generate additional income. Youll find companies ROE provided online at some stock data sites such as at ROE varies by industry, so compare a companys ROE with those of its peers. And review several years worth, too, to avoid being misled by an unusually good or bad year. Be careful, though, because high debt can inflate ROE. If insiders hold big stakes in the company, thats promising as their interests are then aligned with yours. Its also helpful to read company communications, to get a feel for how candid management is about challenges and problems. Profitless PropagandaIn my desire not to miss the Next Big Thing, I invested in two penny stocks based on some propaganda I had received. Both have declined even deeper into penny stock territory. I didnt invest a lot of money, but they still have been a drag on my portfolio. I have learned to stick to what I know and ignore the hype. D.R., onlineThe Fool Responds: You learned a valuable lesson, as penny stocks are notoriously risky, and youre lucky that you didnt invest a lot of money in them. Penny stocks those trading for less than about $5 per share usually belong to small and unproven companies, and they tend to be easily manipulated. Since penny stocks tend to have relatively few shares outstanding, it may not take much buying or selling to send the share price up or down significantly. Thus, dastardly types will engage in pump-and-dump schemes, hyping the companies online or in newsletters so that naive folks buy the shares, sending them up. Then the hypers will sell for a profit, with their selling sending the shares hurtling back down. Youre smart to now see the propaganda for what it is mere hype. Its easy to get excited about companies that might be on the verge of curing cancer or striking oil, but note that many are still unprofitable, often even without revenue. Out of Favor But PromisingThe energy industry is going through some tough times, with oil and natural gas prices depressed. Midstream energy services specialist Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE: EPD) has been performing relatively well anyway, though, and seems poised for further growth. As one of the nations largest transporters, processors and exporters of natural gas liquids, the company benefits from its large scale. While low oil and gas prices can hurt profitability, they have kept demand up, which is good for Enterprises pipeline, processing and storage businesses. Enterprise Products has a master limited partnership (MLP) structure and a conservative management team that focuses on measured, sustainable growth, instead of how fast it can grow its payout. This approach means it consistently reinvests in high-return projects and doesnt rely as much on issuing bonds or stock to meet its capital needs, as many of its peers do. (Note that MLPs have special tax considerations and arent ideal for tax-advantaged accounts such as IRAs and 401(k)s. They can serve you well in regular investment accounts.) Enterprise generates billions in operating cash flow annually and has a proven track record of stable, rising payouts to its shareholders. Its most recent dividend increase was its 46th consecutive quarterly hike and represented a 5 percent increase over year-earlier levels. The stock recently yielded a hefty 6.4 percent. (The Motley Fool has recommended Enterprise Products Partners.) I trace my roots back to the 1924 founding of the Huff Daland Dusters cr op-dusting business in Macon, Georgia. Within a few years I was transporting mail and passengers. I added stewardesses to my service in 1940. Over the years I bought or merged with Pan Am, Northeast Airlines, Northwest Airlines and more. Today I transport about 180 million people annually between 328 destinations in 57 countries on six continents. I offer more than 15,000 flights daily, and my hub is one of the worlds busiest airports. I employ almost 80,000 people and sport a fleet of more than 800 airplanes. Who am I? (Answer: Delta Air Lines) An IPO PuzzleQCan you explain how Fitbit only raised $732 million when it went public last year, when the company was valued at about $4.1 billion? Shouldnt it have raised $4.1 billion? K.S., Madison, IndianaAIt would raise $4.1 billion only if it sold all of itself to the public. Instead, it sold about 18 percent of its shares. The company issued about 36.6 million shares in its initial public offering (IPO), when there were roughly 205 million shares in existence. With IPOs, its typical that the owners of a company sell just a portion of it to the public, retaining at least a majority of shares, if not much more. ***QWhats a UIT? H.M., Jacksonville, North CarolinaAUnit investment trusts, or UITs, can look like mutual funds, but theyre quite different. Theyre invested in a relatively fixed portfolio of securities (such as, say, 12 stocks or bonds), with no investment manager regularly buying and selling holdings. A UITs components are held until its termination date, which could be many years away. Investors who want to trade shares (or units) of a UIT before it matures can often do so on the secondary market but unlike a mutual fund, UIT share prices in the secondary market may be priced above or below the net asset value of the trusts actual holdings. When you buy shares of UITs, you may pay a significant sales fee, or load, but the ongoing management fees tend to be low. Many mutual funds, in contrast, charge no sales load at all, but can charge more in annual fees. Some exchangetraded funds (ETFs) are technically UITs.

Norris design team outfits St. Bridget model in Quail West SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNorris Furniture & Interiors has completed a new model for Florida Lifestyle Homes in Quail West in Naples. Designers Luanza Maitland and Sydney Leigh Warren outfitted the four-bedroom-plus-den, 4-bath St. Bridget in a mix of classic and modern details to complement its striking architectural elements. Cathedral windows lend a subtle Moroccan flavor to the open floor plan that has conversation and gathering areas for entertaining and private quarters for houseguests. In the hallway, we placed a mirror that repeats the beautiful design of the cathedral windows, Ms. Maitland says. We continued subtly echoing key architectural elements throughout to create an appealing transitional look and a sophisticated ambiance. Furnishing in the St. Bridget was selected with livability in mind. We tried to anticipate how the future residents would live and entertain in it, Ms. Maitland says. The designers drew special inspiration from the contemporary artworks in grays, silver and soft gold that they chose for the model. I especially love the pencillike sketches of tropical towns that VISIT WWW.DWANAPLES.COM FOR INFORMATION ON THESE AND OTHER MEDITERRA PROPERTIESDAVID WILLIAM AUSTON, PA MEDITERRA RESIDENT, GOLF MEMBER & REAL ESTATE SPECIALISTASSISTING IN OVER 100 CLOSED MEDITERRA TRANSACTIONS SINCE 2011 AMERIVEST REALTY | Of ce: 239.280.5433 Positano at Mediterra4,233 SQ FT | $2,299,000 Bellezza at Mediterra3,998 SQ FT | $2,095,000 Monterosso at Mediterra2,685 SQ FT | $659,000 Brendisi at Mediterra2,873 SQ FT | $729,000House Hunting:28921 Cavell Terrace, Quail West SEE ST.

SELLER WANTS OFFERS!Struggling to find a home? Find a qualified RealtorWith demand exceeding supply in markets across the U.S., homebuyers may be facing an uphill battle to find the perfect home this spring. Total housing inventory at the end of February was 1.88 million existing homes available for sale, 1.1 percent lower than last year and at a 4.4 month supply at the current sales pace, which is below the roughly sixmonth supply level needed for a balanced market between buyers and sellers. In competitive markets like this, it is important that homebuyers work with a Realtor, says the National Association of Realtors. Realtors who have the National Association of Realtors Accredited Buyers Representative designation are specialized practitioners focused on working directly with buyer-clients and helping them in a sellers market. When there is more demand than inventory homes sell quickly, prices rise and bidding wars can start, said NAR President Tom Salomone, broker-owner of Real Estate II Inc. in Coral Springs. A Realtor with an ABR designation is a homebuyers upper hand; they understand local markets and can negotiate on behalf of their buyer-clients. Adds Mr. Salomone, Buying a home is often one of the biggest decisions of a persons life, and having a Realtor in their corner is the ultimate advantage. They are there to guide consumers through the complexities of this life-changing transaction. NARs 2015 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers asked recent homebuyers what they look for when deciding on a real estate agent; 53 percent said they were looking for someone who could help them find the right home to purchase, and 12 percent said they wanted someone who can help them negotiate the terms of sale. The report also found that homebuyers look at a median of 10 houses before deciding on one to purchase, and the typical search lasts for 10 weeks.Having a real estate expert with specific knowledge of the local market and purchase process can mean the difference between a homebuyer getting that 10th house and having to search for another, said Mr. Salomone.

OConnor. Pegasus Publishing & Entertainment Group. 284 pages. Trade paperback, $14.95; Kindle e-book, $2.99. The jacket copy describes this book as A story of treachery and deceit inspired by true events. Desmond Donahue, the unlicensed doctor who is the central character in this story that reads like a memoir, actually existed. Exposs about him were all over the media some decades back. The value of Ian A. OConnors novelistic treatment is in its psychological and moral probing of a man who, by living a lie, denies himself a full and truly free life. Early on, readers learn that the time comes when Desmonds deceit is exposed. Thus, the question for readers is not whether he will get caught and pay the consequences, but how did it come to pass that he made decisions that led to infamy and self-loathing? What kind of friendships can a man who cannot reveal his dark secret have? What has he traded for the stature and degree of wealth that reversed the harsh poverty of his early years? The portrait of those early years in a small Irish town is rich in detail and totally credible. We can see why Desmond is not anxious to stay in a place that is at once remote and lacking in opportunities. As a young man, he is fortunate enough to have a series of jobs with large construction companies. These jobs enable him to travel, and they open his horizons to possible futures. The idea of becoming a doctor becomes an obsession. He comes to the U.S. following opportunities in Chicago. Here, he has employments in restaurants and earns a GED that allows him to consider higher education as the next step toward fulfilling his ambition. He takes necessary science courses and assists with lab work in various medical fields. When he suddenly receives an opportunity to enter a special medical program in the School of Medicine at University College-Cork, Desmond returns to Ireland ready to push toward his dreams, only to discover that the official who authorized his admission had overstepped his authority. Desmond must go through many lower level hurdles and reapply. Dealing with this grave and unfair setback sets him on the path of cutting corners and indulging in smaller and then larger deceptions. Though he gains the knowledge and skills needed to perform like a skilled, credentialed physician, he never becomes one. His friend Roger temporarily solves Desmonds problems by arranging for false documents that allow Desmond to perpetuate his fraud. Indeed, Roger hires Desmond to co-staff a government-run group of medical centers. But the risk of discovery is always there, and the rest of Desmonds life is based on a lie. There is one grand romance. Miraculously, Desmond meets a gorgeous woman who overwhelms and entices him into a passionate affair. The author, however, provides hints about this womans agenda and her hidden nature. She abandons Desmond, and his world is rocked once again. Just as she never knew his secrets, he never knew hers. Desmond rebuilds his life slowly, and eventually we find him passing for an accredited medical doctor in Florida (a segment of his life in the Sunshine State is set in beautiful Naples in the 1970s). He works effectively, and illegally, for a long time, but eventually his past, his path of deceit, catches up with him. Mr. OConnor builds a highly realist psychological portrait of a man addicted to a dream and determined to attain it. We see the degree to which Desmond rationalizes his decisions, and frequently we are led to be understanding and compassionate, if not forgiving. This character is well conceived and well executed, as are the wide range of settings in which we find him. Particularly effective are the authors descriptions of the life of a medical professional. He presents vivid and convincing scenes about interacting with patients, being part of a hospital staff, socializing with colleagues, performing surgery, studying, handling administrative chores and paperwork all the aspects of a doctors life. Mr. OConnor, who lives in Palm Beach Gardens, has provided a fine entertainment filled with plenty of food for thought. Indeed, its a lavish buffet. 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.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Metamorphoses>> When: April 28-May 15 >> Where: The Venice Theatre, Venice >> Tickets: $25 ($15 for college students, $13 for youth) >> Info: (941) 488-1115 Ms. Prouty is one of a dozen cast members in Metamorphoses at the Venice Theatre. This production of Ovids myths, originally conceived and directed by Mary Zimmerman and based on a translation by David Slavitt, played at the Lookingglass Theatre in Chicago in 1988. Ms. Zimmerman received a MacArthur Fellowship Genius Award. It opened off-Broadway and moved to Broadway in 2002. Time magazine called it the theater event of the year. It won four Drama Desk Awards, including Best New Play, and was nominated for four Tony Awards; Ms. Zimmerman received a Tony for Best Director. Her innovative staging includes a rectangular pool center stage in which the series of vignettes take place. It becomes the River Styx, a sea battleground a pool just to cool off in, says Ms. Pingel. The water also becomes King Midas swimming pool, the ocean where King Ceyx drowns and the water that mirrors the image of Narcissus.Working in waterFor the most part, the actors at the Venice Theatre have been rehearsing sans water, on a wooden floor, the outlines of the pool represented by pink tape. Until they were able to practice in actual water, they had to pretend they were interacting in and around a pool 16 feet long and 5 feet wide. The closest Ms. Prouty has come to dealing with water onstage before was in a production of Singin in the Rain. And she had water splashed on her in A Behanding in Spokane, in a scene where another character doused hers with gasoline. Once she and her Metamorphoses cast members stepped into the Mr. Chases swimming pool, she says, they realized it was almost like another cast member were learning about and getting used to, ever so slowly. It has its own character to it, says fellow actor Jeremy Guerrero. It resists you, it works with you. When you move through it, it splashes in different ways, depending on what youre doing with your body, your performance.In the end, water winsThe dozen actors all play multiple characters from Greek myths, including Aphrodite, Hermes, Midas, Orpheus, Apollo, Psyche and Eros. They also play narrators, a therapist and two narrators known as Q and A (one asks questions, the other gives answers). Mr. Guerrero opens the show, introducing the water and the worlds the players occupy. We do traverse into the underworld and come to above ground, he says. The 1,200-gallon pool used in the production only became available in the venues Pinkerton Theatre for rehearsals this week. The water is ankleto mid-thigh deep. Some actors float in it, and Mr. Guerrero has a scene where, as King Ceyx, hes drowned in the water. Hes not scared of the water, he says, adding about the murder scene, My big fear is making it look convincing. Filled with saltwater, its filtered daily and also heated. Theyre telling us that it will be warm, but Im not counting on it, Mr. Guerrero said last week. It can start heated, but will it stay heated? Ms. Prouty wondered. Theres this thing called budget, Mr. Guerrero replied. In the end, water wins, Ms. Pingel declared. If it wants to leak, it will leak. If it wants to be cold, it will be cold. Mr. Guerrero compared it to having an unruly cast member who doesnt always know his lines. Rehearsing in Mr. Chases pool at least gave the cast more of a sense of what the actual performances of Metamorphoses will be like. Wed been missing something, Ms. Pingel said. The water was there, and it gave back. After the sea battle, there was lapping water on the edges of the pool. When someone emerged from the water, there were streams of water dripping from them. It made sense. Before rehearsing in the pool, You could only assume what the water was going to be like, Ms. Prouty said. You were working off of your memory of being in water. And then youre in it, and its like: oh yeah, this is what its like to try to wade through water and feel the resistance.Characters transformAn interesting mixture of modern and classic, Metamorphoses includes natural movement and heavily ritualized movement, modern dress and characters wearing what would be considered Greek or Roman draping. Theres also a blend of concrete and abstract, says Ms. Pingel. For instance, when Erysichthon cuts down the tree, you just hear a sound effect. There is no tree there, it happens in your imagination. Later, Ceres appears as a broken tree, but shes just behind a couple of green fans. When Ceyx is traveling out to sea, there are paddles moved through the water to make that (rowing) sound. Its a blend of the abstract and the concrete, a blend of poetic language and language thats more prose. And theres acting in a traditional sense as well as narration, which is different from the way a play usually works. (Mary Zimmerman) changes up all these different things to make it brand new. The name, Metamorphoses, is apt, as characters change and transform throughout the play. Two gods come down to earth to see how the people live. A husband and wife are transformed into two trees that intertwine and grow together. Gods turn into suns. Another character steps into a stream and dissolves. In every single story theres a metamorphosis, Ms. Pingel says. Its a physical transformation or a mental transformation. In a 2002 interview on NOW with Bill Moyers, Ms. Zimmerman said the play makes it easy to enter the heart and believe in greater change as well that we can all transform. Ms. Pingel notes that she graduated from the same school at Northwestern University as Ms. Zimmerman and took many of the same classes with the same professors. It was then called The School of Oral Interpretation, and her degree was in performance and literary criticism. Its now known as The School of Performance Studies, and Ms. Zimmerman is a professor there. Myths are important even now, says Ms. Pingel. As a characters therapist says in the play: It has been said that the myth is a public dream, dreams are private myths. Unfortunately, we give our mythic side scant attention these days. As a result, a great deal escapes us and we no longer understand our own actions. So it remains important and salutary to speak not only of the rational and easily understood, but also of enigmatic things: the irrational and the ambiguous. To speak both privately and publicly. These stories are as old as time, Ms. Pingel says, which means theyve had resonance no matter what time frame theyre in. As a Renaissance woman you could read them and relate to them. As a modern woman you could read them and relate to them. They reflect all that is good and all that is bad, and all of the human struggle. And I think in being reminded that our victories and our failures and all the human experience is shared, you should never really feel alone. Wendy Dettman plays Psyche and Jeffrey Sadler plays Eros in the Venice Theatre production of Metamorphoses, an innovative re-telling of Greek myths. Going to the show? Be sure to bring your raincoatBY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweeklycomWhen you go to SeaWorld, you know enough not to sit in the rst few rows unless you want to get soaked by gigantic sea mammals bellyopping into the water. But theater? You expect to stay dry there. Unless, of course, something moves you so much that you begin to cry. But buy a ticket to Metamorphoses at the Venice Theatre, and youll receive a warning: Because the show is set in and around a pool of water, audience members seated in the rst row may get splashed. Director Kathy Pingel explains: Its not a dousing. You might get a little splash Its not like sitting in the front row of a Gallagher show, a reference to the comedian legendary for smashing watermelons with sledgehammers onstage. Metamorphoses takes place in a pool thats 8 inches to a little more than 2 feet deep. This isnt the rst time water has played a major role in theater. More than 30 years ago Tommy Tune and Twiggy did a show-stopping number in My One and Only in which they tap danced in shallow water as they sang SWonderful. Singin in the Rain can also get a little splashy. I recall seeing a production just outside of Chicago where it rained onstage. The actors took particular delight in jumping in the puddles and swiping their feet through them, a sort of baptism for the audience. If youre ever fortunate enough to see a performance of Pina Bauschs Vollmond, youll delight to dancers joyously sliding, twirling, kicking and gliding their way through water. And then theres The Rocky Horror Picture Show, a highly interactive musical. Those in the know bring props with them, including newspapers; when Janet and Brads car breaks down and it starts pouring rain, out come the water pistols, shot straight up into the air, to replicate the thunderstorm. Of course, thats what the newspapers are for, to place over your head for protection. So be prepared. You dont have to wear a swimsuit to Metamorphoses, but a raincoat might help, especially if your seats are in the front row. RENEE MCVETY / COURTESY PHOTOSPOOLFrom page 1

Opening night is Saturday, April 30, in the G&L Theatre at Community School of Naples. With music by Jim Wise and book and lyrics by George Haimsohn and Robin Miller, the show is an homage to the gaudy musicals of the 1930s. It tells the story of a struggling Broadway production and an understudys rise to stardom. The original 1966 rendition included a young and largely unknown Ms. Peters, who went on to be a Broadway regular and multiple Tony Award winner. The musical had successful runs off Broadway with Ms. Peters and, later, in Londons West End. Karen Molnar, resident choreographer at TheatreZone, makes her directorial debut with the professional company with Dames at Sea. Since the show doesnt have a chorus, the dance demands for the six principals were a key factor in casting, she says. The six people that we have selected are all amazing talents, Ms. Molnar says. It makes my job very easy and fun when I have performers with this level of technique not only as singers and actors, but also as dancers. Lindsay Bethea stars as Ruby, the bright-eyed young star who packed up all she needs when she headed to Broadway: just her tap shoes. The character can be compared to real-life singer/dancer Ruby Keeler, who was celebrated for her intricate tap rhythms. Cherie Price plays temperamental diva Mona Kent, and Dawn Labrecht has the role of the tough talking, wisecracking, big-hearted chorus girl named Joan. David Tanciar is the sailor Lucky, Joans former boyfriend. Eric Rivas is a fellow handsome sailor who happens to be an aspiring songwriter. Tom Wallace performs as both the harried stage director Hennsley and the ships Captain. Friendships make a splash in The Dixie Swim Club SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYWith the southern charm of Steel Magnolias and the biting repartee of The Golden Girls, five local actresses make a splash in The Naples Players final show of the season. An endearing comedy by Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten and Jessie Jones (collectively known as Jones Hope Wooten), The Dixie Swim Club runs through May 15 on the main stage at the Sugden Community Theatre. John McKerrow will direct. Enduring friendships are at the heart of this lively story where five very different women, who met on their college swim team, reconnect every year at a beachfront home in North Carolinas Outer Banks. Leaving husbands, jobs and kids behind, they come to laugh, reminisce and meddle in each others lives. John McKerrow directs the casts that includes Genai Corban as Sheree, the hyper-organized and athletic group leader; Dolores Fetters as Vernadette, the self-deprecating whose life seems to be under a constant dark cloud; Carol Fox as Lexie Richards, the beautiful Southern belle obsessed with her youth; Ann Hoover as Dinah, the dryhumored, overachieving and sometimes cynical lawyer of the ensemble; and Susan West as Jeri Neal, the sweetas-pie, sometimes nave former nun. Local theatergoers will be seeing Ms. Corban onstage for the first time. Although she is a newcomer to Naples, her 30 years of experience in the entertainment industry include shows in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and London. A long-time member of SAGAFTRA, she has numerous television and movie roles to her credit and was last seen on stage as Anna in Burn This at Players Theatre in New York. Ms. Fetters works as administrative assistant for TNP during business hours and last performed as part of the company ensemble in The Foreigner in 2015. A veteran of the local stage, Ms. Fox most recently performed with TNP as Aunt Eller in Oklahoma!, Mrs. Tottendale in The Dr owsy Chaperone and Clairee in Steel Magnolias. Ms. Hoover is welcomed back to the stage after performing as Mrs. Boyle in 2013s The Mousetrap and as the acerbic Ouiser Boudreaux in the 2012 production of Steel Magnolias. Another newcomer to Naples, Ms. West makesher theatrical debut in The Dixie Swim Club. She recently relocated from Arlington, Texas, where she worked as a high-school teacher.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYLoveable amphibians rule at Florida RepFrog and Toad are friends. Scratch that. Frog and Toad are best friends. Anyone whos read Arnold Lobels series of I Can Read Books about the two amphibians with bulgy eyes and kind hearts knows that. The two buddies are inseparable: flying kites, baking cookies, going on bike rides or sliding down snow-covered hills on a sled. The books about them are timeless. Parents read them to their children. Grandparents read them to their grandchildren. And theyre simple enough that kids can read them by themselves (with a little help.) Theyre also award winners. Frog and Toad Together is a Newbery Honor Book. Frog and Toad Are Friends is a Caldecott Honor Book. Frog and Toad All Year is an ALA Notable Childrens Book. The books are so beloved that it makes sense they were transformed into theater. Mr. Lobels daughter, Adrianne Lobel, commissioned a musical based on her late fathers books, which he both wrote and illustrated. Two brothers wrote the musical: Robert Reale (music) and Willie Reale (lyrics and book.) A Year With Frog and Toad was first produced at the Childrens Theatre Company in Minneapolis, then moved to off-Broadway. It then hopped over the Broadway, where it received three Tony nominations in 2003: Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score. Florida Repertory Theatre is presenting a condensed one-hour version of the musical as part of its Lunchbox Series. The show plays again at 11 a.m. Wednesday, May 25. Tickets are $10. This quirky and endearing musical has only five actors. Ryan Gallerani plays the amiable and easy-going Frog, while Dillion Everett plays the anxious and sometimes grumpy Toad. Three other actors Caroline Clay, Haley Ondrejka and Kyle Ashe Wilkinson play multiple roles, including birds, other frogs and moles. Ms. Clay has a humorous role as Turtle, wearing a lime green bathing cap and a round backpack as a shell. (Alexandria Vazquezs costumes are simple but creative. I especially liked his moles, dressed in trench coats, sunglasses and fur hats, like Russian spies. And who knew that amphibians wore argyle socks?) Ms. Ondrejka is shy and, well, mousy as Mouse, in a nondescript gray dress. And Mr. Wilkinson has a recurring role as Snail, in which he agrees to deliver a letter from Frog to Toad. Of course, being a snail, its not exactly express delivery, which makes the whole situation silly fun. He shows up sporadically throughout the musical, moving as fast as he can which is not very fast at all, kind of like Erronius, the old man in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, who appears every so often as he runs seven times around the seven hills of Rome. Toad, you see, is sad because no one ever sends him a letter. So Frog sits down and writes him one to cheer him up. But the problem is, he gives it to Snail to deliver. Every day, Frog asks Toad if hes received any mail; Toad, miffed that no one writes to him, dejectedly says no every time. Frog and Toad are a somewhat mismatched pair, which proves the adage that opposites attract. They are friends who complement each other. They are so happy and comfortable in each others company, like best friends always are. Frog is tall and dashing, an optimist, while Toad is short and cautious, a pessimist. The scenes and songs are based around many of the stories in Mr. Lobels series of books. Toad is scared he looks silly in his bathing suit, and the animals all sing Getta Loada Toad. The two go for a ride down the hill on a sled, after much convincing by Frog (Down the Hill). Of course, they hit a bump and Frog falls off, though Toad thinks hes still with him. In Cookies, they sing about how terrific cookies are, and how its difficult to not eat just one more. And in Hell Never Know, the two go to the others yard and rake his leaves for him, as a surprise. Of course, by the time they return to their own yards, the wind has blown the leaves back. But both are happy, thinking theyve done a secret good deed for their best friend. The music is very 1920s, and some of the choreography (by Heather Baynes) includes flapper moves and the Charleston. Director Jason Parrish has done an exceptional job with this, getting the humor and the tone just right. The musical is a year full of incidents. Each scene is like a poem, lovely and beautiful in its simplicity. Kids can be a tough audience. When theyre bored, you know it; you can hear them moving and wiggling in their seats. But then an actor would say or sing something, and immediately grab their attention. The children would shriek with laughter. As I sat and watched A Year With Frog and Toad, I wondered if any of the children in the audience had ever received a real hand-written letter in the mail. I bet their grandparents email them or Skype. I wondered how many of them would ever know the joy of receiving a newsy, quirky letter from their best friend, sent through the mail. (My best friend and I still snail-mail each other, as we have for more than 30 years, though we also email each other, and yes, even though it sometimes feels as if an actual snail is delivering the mail.) I also wondered how this audience of Florida children understood the four seasons. The musical, and Mr. Lobels books, talk about planting seeds in the spring, raking leaves in the fall, riding sleds in the snow and hibernating through the winter. For Florida kids, theres snowbird season and hurricane season. Hot weather and even-hotter weather. How in the world do they understand seasons when they dont experience them? These are not criticisms, just questions the musical raised for me and made me wonder about. A Year With Frog and Toad is every bit as lovely and endearing as the books on which its based. From lyrics to music to costumes to props, its clever and unexpected. And this quintet of actors make these well-known characters step off the pages and become three-dimensional. Take your kids or take your best friend; theyll be equally charmed.

CONTRACT BRIDGERuff stuffBY STEVE BECKERThe crossruff is an indispensable weapon in the declarers arsenal. In the right circumstances, it has the power to overcome opposing honor cards and unfavorable distribution sometimes both. Take this case where South reached four hearts on the bidding shown. At first glance, it might seem that because of the bad breaks in both hearts and spades, declarer must lose a trump trick and three spades to go down one. But, thanks to the crossruff, thats not the way it turned out and there was nothing the opponents could do about it. West led his singleton spade, taken by dummys ace. South saw at once that even with a normal trump division, he would not score more than eight tricks five hearts, a spade and two clubs if he drew trumps at once. So he chose a line of play that would allow him to score as many of his trumps separately as possible. He began by cashing the K-A of clubs and ruffing a club with dummys five. A diamond was ruffed, and declarer led his last club. It didnt matter whether West ruffed the club or not. In practice, West ruffed with the eight, which was overruffed by dummys jack. South then ruffed another diamond in his hand with the nine. Seven tricks had been played thus far, and declarer had won them all. The A-K-Q of hearts took the next three tricks, and the defenders scored the rest, Wests trump winner going on one of Easts spade tricks. Observe that the defenders seemingly certain four tricks somehow became compacted into three at the end. Thats the way things often go in crossruff hands.

Reception is free for members and $10 for non-members. No pre-registration needed. n 2 g ht r k. for Sponsored by: Sp o so ore d y In Partnership with: FILM CAPSULESDemolition (Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts, Chris Cooper) After Davis (Mr. Gyllenhaal) loses his wife in a car accident, a stranger (Ms. Watts) who works in vending machine customer service helps him move on. Davis is so numb that he doesnt feel anything, which has the ironic byproduct of the audience not feeling anything either. Youll want to invest emotionally, but you wont be able to. Rated R.City Of Gold (Jonathan Gold, Roy Choi, David Chang) The story is unfocused in this documentary about Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold and his influence on Los Angeles. Not only that, but Mr. Golds personality isnt interesting enough to warrant following him for 90 minutes. Rated R.My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, Lainie Kazan) Toula (Ms. Vardalos) and Ian (Mr. Corbett) have trouble connecting while her parents (Ms. Kazan and Michael Constantine) realize their wedding was never official. Its a delight to see this crazy family back on the big screen, and just as funny as it was when the original was a box office hit in 2002. Rated PG-13.Dough (Jonathan Pryce, Jerome Holder, Ian Hart) A old-school Jewish baker (Mr. Pryce) hires a Muslim teenager to give him a hand, not realizing the teenager also sells marijuana. Naturally, when some of the marijuana gets into the dough, business booms. Its a funny yet poignant serio-comedy that nicely hits its mark. Not Rated: Adult situations.Hello, My Name Is Doris (Sally Field, Max Greenfield, Tyne Daly) Sixty-something Doris (Ms. Field) falls for her 20-something (Mr. Greenfield) co-worker. 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. Although Ms. Fey shows a mix of dramatic acting chops alongside her perfect comic timing, the film as a whole doesnt handle the shifting tones between comedy and drama nearly as well. Still, its intriguing and enjoyable. Rated R.

NoDriving home after seeing The Jungle Book, I told my wife I thought it was visually impressive but the story was lacking and there were too many superfluous characters. That it all felt kind of flat and tedious. She then pointed out that I had the exact same reaction to Disneys 1967 animated version of The Jungle Book. One reason the remakes plot feels hackneyed and thrown together rather than coherent and vibrant could be because its loosely based on a number of short stories by Rudyard Kipling; even the 1967 film was a piecemeal compilation of storylines and characters from throughout Kiplings series. Youd think writer Justin Marks and director Jon Favreau (Iron Man) would have learned from these shortcomings, but theyve loyally stuck with their predecessor to a fault.The main storyline is a bit thin, but functional. Mowgli (Neel Sethi) is a human boy in the jungle being raised by wolves (Lupita Nyongo and Giancarlo Esposito) and a paternal panther named Bagheera (Ben Kingsley). Their livelihood is threatened when a tiger named Shere Khan (Idris Elba), citing his own dangerous encounter with a man years earlier, decides he wants to kill Mowgli. Bagheera decides its best to take Mowgli back to his fellow humans, but Mowgli gets lost along the way and settles in with a bumbling bear named Baloo (Bill Murray). While these basics are OK the lack of a subplot is backbreaking. Whats more, we dont need a snake named Kaa (Scarlett Johansson) telling us Mowglis backstory, nor do we need an extended sequence with King Louie (Christopher Walken) that only serves to lengthen the running time. Anything and everything accomplished in these sequences could have been achieved much easier and in more economical ways; instead, the story meanders until the whole thing becomes a drag. Mr. Favreaus remake was shot entirely on a soundstage in Los Angeles, which is mind-boggling considering the quality of the visuals (this is similar to how Avatar was shot). The rain, darkness of night, various wildlife and vast terrains of the jungle look and feel authentic, and in 3D its a dynamic viewing experience. Watch for the little details shadows on the walls and the wolves hair rising up in fear, for example and youll have a real appreciation of the artwork on display here. Too bad that alone is not enough. This isnt a musical, but there are two songs that harken back to the 1967 film, though only one Bare Necessities is engaging and feels right (note the tremendous detailed visual effects on the big bears wet fur). Just about all of Mr. Murrays lines are a hoot, making him the clear standout among an impressive list of names in the voice cast. Disney is in the midst of a series of live action adaptations of its classic cartoons, with Cinderella a box office hit in 2014, The Jungle Book now and Beauty and the Beast slated for March 2017 (not to mention Angelina Jolies 2014 Maleficent spinoff from Sleeping Beauty). Its not a bad trend, as technology has clearly advanced enough to make any world from any imagination come alive. It is bad, however, when the filmmakers dont fix what was wrong in the first place. If youre going to remake a classic, you have to do better than this. dan >> This is comedian Garry Shandlings nal lm. He steals a few scenes early on as Ikki the porcupine, who was in Rudyard Kiplings stories but was not in the 1967 movie.

KOVEL: ANTIQUESTransforming old furniture, tools, creates trendy industrial look BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELAntiques and design shows today often have attractive pieces of furniture that have been transformed by painting, decorating or removing the original finish. In the 1980s, the transformed look often was created with a layer of white paint encouraged to peel to look old. Today the industrial look is in, and shows have old workbenches, industrial tools attached to wooden tables, lamps made of old gears and gym lockers stripped of their original paint. All have been given a modern look by exposing the original silvery finish of the metal parts. InCollect, the upscale website that sells expensive antiques, offered a long rectangular desk with a polished aluminum finish. The desk had been used during World War II. It is made of the aluminum used in airplanes in the 1930s and s. It was originally painted green (some of the paint is left in a drawer as a part of its history). The desk was hand stripped and polished for about 80 hours. It is more than a desk it can fold into a box to be moved, which was a wartime necessity. Look at some of the used metal furniture selling for offices or workshops, or scrap metal that can be changed in a doit-yourself project into unique modern furniture. Q: I got a Casige toy sewing machine for Christmas in the late 1940s or early s. Its in excellent condition with the original box. It was made in West Germany. Is this of any value other than sentimental? A: Casige made toy sewing machines from 1902 until 1975. The company was founded in 1852 by Carl Sieper of Gevelsberg, Germany. It originally made locks for pianos and other furniture. The name of the company came from the combination of the first two letters of his first and last names and the town. His grandson, Carl Sieper II, began making small sewing machines for schools in 1902. Eightythree models were made between 1902 and 1975.

The cover looks like leather and has two color pictures of children and drawings of leaves. A: Some old books are valuable, but it takes an expert to appraise them. The fables were first told about 600 BC and didnt appear in print until 1557. Several editions of the version translated by Reverend George Fyler Townsend (1814-1900) were published in the late 1800s. They sell online for about only $12 and up. If you want to sell your copy, you can take it to a store that sells used books. Q: My grandchild is named Sarah, a nice old-fashioned name. I wanted to buy an antique childs cup with her name on it, but after looking at antiques shows for months, I have found lots of other names. Was a Sarah cup made in the 1800s? A: Mugs and small plates for children were popular in England but not in America during the 19th century. Many ceramic factories made them. Some were decorated with names like Hannah, Louisa, Sophie and yes, Sarah. But childrens tablewares also had sayings like A Birth Day Gift, For my dear boy, For a good girl or other phrases so the mugs could be given as rewards or gifts. Pictures from childrens books, educational decorations like the alphabet or pictures and names of animals also were popular. Some had messages like Make hay while the sun shines. The cups helped children learn manners and moral character. You might be lucky enough to find Sarah through an Internet search, but the odds are against you. Q: I have an old typewriter made by a company called Blickensderfer of Stamford, Conn. On the side of the frame is a shield with patent numbers from July 15, 1890 to April 12, 1892. The typewriters letters and numbers are on a cylinder that rotates to the desired key when pressed. Is this of value? Is there a market for something like this? A: In 1891 George Blickensderfer invented a small portable writing machine that used a cylinder instead of striker keys to print letters. It had a keyboard, but the order of letters was different from the QWERTY keyboard used today. The machine was lighter, less expensive and designed to avoid the key hang up of other typewriters. The user could change type styles by changing the cylinder without using a tool. The idea was similar to the IBM Selectric, which came along almost 75 years later. The first models were probably made in very limited numbers since none have been found. The Model 5, nicknamed the Blick, was introduced at the Columbian Exposition in 1893 and was made for many years. Blickenderfers company was successful, but he was hit by a car and died in New York City in 1917. Attempts to run his company failed and the company went bankrupt. In 1927, Remington bought the inventory and the intellectual rights. Blickensderfer typewriters sell between $300 and $400. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

We want edgier things that you wouldnt necessarily see in the area, he adds about the shows he and Kevin Moriarty are bringing to the local stage. The two men founded Lets Put On A Show Productions four years ago; Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is the only play they are staging this year. Theyve been working since January with cast members Kathleen Barney (Martha), Sean OShea (George), Kevin Hendricks (Nick) and Tracey Lane (Honey). The preparation has been grueling and gratifying, says Ms. Barney, who has been working hard taking on Marthas deep dissatisfaction with her husband and her disappointment with their lives together. Its a very difficult play, she says about the language of the script and the depth and complexity of each of the characters. Getting into their lives is incredibly hard work. About her character, Martha, Ms. Barney says, I think she loves her husband. However, shes extremely disappointed in him. She is harboring many disappointments in her life. Shes angry and shes looking for happiness, yet she doesnt allow herself to be happy. Shes just a very troubled woman in a troubled marriage. Unfortunately for Nick and Honey, Martha and George are not satisfied with keeping their dysfunction to themselves.His performance as Nick marks Mr. Hendricks stage debut; Ms. Barney, Mr. OShea and Ms. Lane all have appeared previously in local performances, Ms. Lane and Mr. OShea most recently in August: Osage County with Lets Put on a Show Productions last season.

WORK IN PROGRESSThis is Part 3 of a six-part fiction series from a novel-in-progress by Florida Weekly writer Artis Henderson. The novels protagonist, Jesse Lowe, has run away with her fathers best friend, Corbin Tillis. Jesses father died when she was 5 and now 16, she longs to discover more about him. Corbin was just released from prison after serving a sentence on drug charges. He has reluctantly agreed to take Jesse on his travels around the state.Corbin and Lida spent the afternoon on the porch passing a bottle of Old Crow between them while Jesse lay on the couch inside the trailer watching talk shows on an old Hitachi. Eventually, she fell into a deep heat-filled sleep. In the evening, she woke to the whine of a mosquito in her ear. The inside of the trailer was dark and the sky made a silver rectangle of pale light in the open doorway. Jesse strained to hear, but there was only the nighttime hum of insects. She walked to the kitchen and drank a glass of water then set off to find Corbin. On the front porch, Lida slept slumped against the trailer, snoring softly, her hair unwound from its braid and draped loose around her face. Her chest rose and fell in a slow rhythm and her mouth hung open. The bourbon bottle sat empty except for a few flies caught in the bottom. Corbins truck was still parked in front of the trailer, and when Jesse laid a hand on the hood it was cool to the touch. A full moon rose in the west and she cast a faint shadow as she walked, following some instinct that this was the right direction. She heard the sound of water and the sharp rustle of an armadillo in the underbrush. Then she caught it: low voices. Mens voices. Close by, a match struck and a flame burned bright through a stand of palm fronds. Jesse recognized Corbins face. He shook out the match and the tip of his cigarette glowed. Beside him, a young man rubbed his hands together nervously. From the light of the moon, she could make out dark hair and a round face. I could get you an airboat, maybe, the man was saying. But a fishing boat? Corbin stood with one foot propped on a cypress knee, the cigarette hanging from his mouth. He looked toward the swamp as he spoke. Doesnt have to be a great boat, he said. Just something to get me across the strait. Why? the other man asked. Whatd you lose over there? Nothing Id tell you about. The man shoved his thumbs through his belt loops. What about that skinny girl youre with? Jesse went still, holding her breath. Corbin took a long drag on his cigarette and the cherry tip glowed red in the dark. Shes just along for the ride. She legal? Jesus, Billie. Keep off her. Billie laughed. What? You want to keep that for yourself? Its cool, man. Just say the word. Corbin dropped his cigarette and ground out the butt with his heel. Keep the f--off her, he said and turned, striding back through the brush. Jesse stood for what felt like a long time after Corbin left. Billie pulled a joint out of his shirt pocket and squatted down on a log to light up. He sat in profile to her, his face in shadows, as the clearing filled with pungent smoke. Jesse stayed so still her legs ached. After a while Billie said, I can see you, you know. He brought the joint to his lips, drew in and eased the smoke out through his nose. Sl owly, he peeled himself off the log and stepped forward, out of the clearing to where Jesse stood behind a cabbage palm. Moonlight slid over his skin like milk. Corbin says you two are traveling together. He leaned down and rubbed the end of the joint in the dirt, pinched the tip, shook it off, and slipped it back in his pocket. You his girl? No. What are you then? I dont know. Billie ran the tip of his tongue over his bottom lip as if he were tasting the air. He started to say something else but a car door slammed, and he glanced over Jesses shoulder. She didnt wait to hear what he might say. She took off toward the trailers at a run, the long grass swishing at her feet. Artis Henderson is the author of Unremarried Widow, Simon & Schuster, 2014. artis

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2016 C23 CELEBRITY EXTRAHousewives actress to star in TV movie BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: Desperate Housewives was one of my favorite shows. Can you tell me what Andrea Bowen, the actress who played Julie Mayer, is up to lately? Gia F., via emailA: Since Housewives ended in 2012, Andrea has kept busy with TV movies and series like Scandal, The Preachers Daughter and The Secret Life of the American Teenager, to name a few. Soon you can catch her starring in the Lifetime original thriller Dirty Little Addict, which premieres May 1 at 9 p.m. Q: I heard talk about a possible sequel to Galaxy Quest, but now that Alan Rickman has passed away, is it even wise to try? Lisa F., via TwitterA: I agree, Lisa. No one can take the place of Alan Rickman, and it would appear that the folks who planned Galaxy Quest 2 agree. Most of the original cast members were ready to do a sequel for Amazon, but according to Sam Rockwell, who co-starred in the original move, it was diff icult to find a time to do it because of everyones busy schedules, and then Alan Rickman died. Sam revealed in a Nerdist podcast: How do you fill that void of Alan Rickman? Thats a hard void to fill. So, no, its looking like the sci-fi cult hit will not be getting a sequel, and I think thats as it should be. Readers: As I promised, here is all the information you need to know about the summer premieres of three of your favorite TNT dramas. On June 12, The Last Ship sets sail in its quest to save humanity after a devastating pandemic with a two-hour premiere. Eric Dane, Bridget Regan, Adam Baldwin, Travis Van Winkle, Marissa Neitling and Jocko Sims star in the third season of the series, as the crew of the Nathan James shifts its attention toAsia. Major Crimes returns for its fifth season on June 13, as Mary McDonnell and crew set out to solve some of the worst and most challenging homicides in Los Angeles. And Murder in the First has its season-three premiere on June 19, as viewers are taken deep inside a complex murder investigation conducted by a pair of San Francisco detectives played by Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson.

The Hours: 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily The Full Menu: The Details: Sunday morning found our family making a pilgrimage to the Third Street South farmers market, only to remember halfway there that it takes place on Saturdays instead. Duh. We had promised the kids breakfast once we got downtown, and when they realized we werent going to feed them at our destination, they started to get hangry. The youngest started mutt ering I want McDonalds like an incantation, as if a Happy Meal might materialize in her lap if she wished hard enough. We knew we wouldnt make it back to our side of town without a mutiny. At the perfect moment, Another Broken Egg Caf appeared and we wheeled in just in time to beat a mass of people who showed up five minutes behind us. I wasnt feeling especially indulgent and thought the quinoa and fruit mixture wouldnt be too extravagant, but the dish that came out was as delicious as it was beautiful to behold. I was amazed. It turns out that granola, blue quinoa, shredded coconut, sliced strawberries and bananas, coconut milk and a drizzle of local honey really elevates a healthy breakfast. One More Thing: Have you ever seen a prettier presentation? I love how this place makes you feel simultaneously fancy and casual. Lindsey Nesmith

Craft Beer DinnerJoin us Friday April 22nd 7:30pm Featuring local brewery...Enjoy a 4 course meal and craft beer pairingsin ADVANCE $ 40at theDOOR PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Another Broken Egg Caf, 670 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 300-0696 I can heartily recommend this terrific newcomer for a unique breakfast. While it offers traditional items, theres ample opportunity for experimentation. Crab cakes topped with poached eggs and Andouille-infused Hollandaise, for example. Omelettes with lobsters and Brie would be another, and there are even some breakfast appetizers. I can attest to the deliciousness of the Baked Brie Delight a slab or warm cheese served with apples, raisins and pecans lightly sauted in Grand Marnier butter sauce and paired with toasted French bread. This was an appetizer large enough for four to share. Other winners were a large bowl of house-made granola, fruit and quinoa with strawberries, blueberries, bananas, coconut and vanilla Greek yogurt; the Bacquezo, an omelette with cream cheese, bacon, chorizo, Monterey Jack and green onions; and the Hey Lucy! omelette with chorizo, sauted onions, green chiles and cheddar. A Belgian waffle and glutenfree pancakes were top-notch as well. A bonus: The staff is uniformly welcoming and efficient. Lunch served, too. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2016 Lamoraga, 3936 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 331-3669 The first U.S. branch of this stylish Spanish chain features contemporary tapas in a setting to match. Pick a table or settle in at the sprawling tapas bar and watch the culinary team craft dishes such as berenjenas (three small fried eggplant with smoky, crisp skins filled with soft flesh, topped with tobiko flakes, mirin and honey); artisanal meat and cheese plates; Andalusian garlic shrimp; and Moorish lamb skewers. There are large plates as well such as baked black cod, beef short ribs and dry-aged New York strip steak. For dessert, try the warm roasted fig tart with pistachio ice cream. Lamoraga does a fine job on beverages as well, with an interesting selection of wines and cocktails served by an eager-to-please staff. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2014 Rumba Cuban Cafe, 1265 Airport-Pulling Road; 659-2996 The former Fernandez the Bulls southerly location is in good hands with Chef Jorge Reyes, who used to work there, at the helm. His relatives infuse Rumba with the same warm, family flavor its predecessor had. And the foods still great, too. Skip the mojito (they dont have a liquor license and use orange wine) and go for the sangria instead. Rumba chips (long, crisp plantain strips served with well-seasoned ground beef) are good for a starter. The tamales were also tasty. Both the ropa vieja (shredded flank steak with tomato sauce) and lechon asado (big marinated and roasted chunks of pork) were excellent with sides of plantains, white rice and black beans. For dessert you cant go wrong with flan or tres leches cake. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2015 TAG The American Gastropub, Coconut Point, 23161 Village Shops Way, Estero; 949-4300 The gastropub tag implies ampedup pub food in a casual but stylish setting, with craft beverages and reasonable prices. TAG delivers most of that but could be more consistent. A sampling of trendy deviled eggs with fancy toppings held garnishes that were just too subtle to achieve the wow factor that can transform these homey classics in the right hands. We were more impressed with the Prince Edward Island mussels steamed in beer broth seasoned with oranges and coriander and with ground and sliced chorizo tossed in. The combination of sweet fruit and warm spices worked well with the abundant shellfish. A basic burger was elevated by yummy bacon jam, and a salmon entre was perfectly cooked and nicely paired with succotash. Root beer-braised short ribs were impressively tender, but the johnnycakes served underneath were tough, dry and mealy (as was the crust of a deconstructed apple pie stuffed into a pint canning jar). Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2015 21 Spices by Chef Asif, Sugden Park Plaza, 4270 Tamiami Trail E., Naples; 919-8830 Head east on Tamiami Trail, that is for a taste of modern Indian cuisine as imagined and prepared by Chef Asif Rasheed. Born in Northern India, he brings his well-developed talents for art and cooking to this elegant and innovative newcomer where youll find some of the standards as well as intriguing offerings such as lobster mulligatawny soup, dumpukhy goat biryani and jhinga prawns. The ghehra paani diver scallops were plump and delicious atop a mound of black lentils with orange tomato jus and yellow pepper coulis. Palawaka chaat consisted of crisp fried baby spinach leaves intermingled with dates, tamarind and yogurt. A trio of baby lamb chops was moist and seasoned with a touch of mint and mustard. From the entrees, great choices were the seafood medley, the saffron chicken korma and the Nizams kofte (vegetable and cheese dumplings). Full bar.

Tucked into a strip center on U.S. 41, the dining room was somewhat dated and dark, but the food was reasonably priced and reliable, which no doubt explains its longevity in a less-thanprime location. A few months ago, Flacos moved east into tonier digs at the Shoppes at Vanderbilt, joining other dining establishments including Caf Alfredo, Poached and French Folies. The new digs offer large windows and soaring ceilings, not to mention a bar that looks to seat about two dozen people. Theres also outside seating, which is what I recommend if you want to converse with your dining companion. Even before the place filled up, the noise level bordered on painful. Our server had to return to the table to make sure he had heard properly that we wanted salt on the rims of our margaritas. Other than the backs of a few booths and token number of sombreros, theres little soft material to absorb the sound. Instead, the attractive but solid surfaces magnify the volume, bouncing conversations and high-pitched laughter from one end of the room to the other. The staff was swift to act as we sat down. Chips and salsa appeared before our napkins hit our laps. A bottle of water and glasses were right behind that. A server was at our side inquiring about drinks before wed had a chance to look at the menu. We found that the staff was, in fact, a bit too swift, giving us the impression that we should get a move on when it came to ordering, eating and paying. Appetizers were slapped down (the wrong one in front of each of us), and entrees arrived before wed finished the starters. Our bill came before we finished dessert or had a chance to ask for it. And the server attendant even tried to scoop the bill off the table before Id managed to sign it. This churn-and-burn style of service might be just fine if you are racing to get to a movie or are eating with restless or unruly children. But we werent, and I found it extremely inhospitable. There wasnt even a long line of people waiting for tables, so Im not sure what the rush was all about. As for the food: Things started off well. The salsa and chips were good, the chips warm and crisp and the chunky salsa packing some serious heat. They should have been the perfect counterpoint to cold, refreshing margaritas, but the Cadillac margaritas ($15) we ordered (billed as having Silver Patron tequila, which likely accounted for the price) may well have contained the pricier liquor but were barely cool and lacked much citrus flavor. Flacos camarones borrachos (drunken shrimp, $10.75) were described as being sauted with jalapenos, cilantro, tomatoes and tequila. There were plenty of diced tomatoes and some cilantro on the plate, but I couldnt detect any jalapeno heat or tequila in the dish. Similarly, the ceviche ($10.75), a blend of grouper and shrimp in lime and tomato, was also overpowered by loads of tomato. It came with slices of fresh avocado and lime wedges on top but was surprisingly bland compared to the lively salsa. There are a number of steaks, vegetarian dishes and fajitas and even chicken mole from which to choose, but each of us wanted to sample two or three items and so we availed ourselves of the combo platters. My companion chose the cheese enchilada and beef burrito ($11.25), which turned out to be a good choice. The enchilada had good cheese flavor and texture, and the burrito was loaded with nicely seasoned beef. Rice and refried beans finished off the plate. I created my own combination ($13.75) of a seafood taco, chicken enchilada with green tomatillo sauce and a tamale. The taco was quickly soaked by the sauces from the enchilada and tamale, so I wound up cutting it with a knife and fork. There was not a lot of fish, and the shrimp were of the mini-cocktail variety. Give me a few large gulf shrimp and Ill happily pay more for the flavor and texture they impart. The enchiladas shredded chicken was fine with the tangy tomatillo sauce, and the pork-filled tamale with a spicy red sauce was the best of the trio. The refrieds and rice were what youd expect. From the dessert menu, we tried a gluten-free nut cake ($5.75), not because its gluten free but because it had layers of roasted almonds and hazelnuts held together with creamy milk chocolate icing and a topping of Nutella, accompanied by ice cream, whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce. You wont miss the flour in this chewy, chocolatey concoction. We shared it and had plenty to go around. Flacos has been around a long time. The fact that its in a new building should not cause a serious downshift in the quality of its food or service. When quantity becomes more important than quality, restaurants find that customers quickly figure it out and go someplace where they are appreciated.

YOUR GUIDE TO NEW HOME COMMUNITIES IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA If the clubhouse is the social and recreational centerpiece of a community then Kalea Bays clubhouse will surely be one of the busiest places in the luxury, residential high-rise community currently being developed on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. Sales of the community hit a new milestone surpassing the $130 million mark while construction continues to progress ahead of schedule as developers recently poured the 14th floor. The 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance and is currently under construction. The clubhouse will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Wilson. The indoor/outdoor restaurant will serve informal meals and tropical drinks throughout the day. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. Nearby are 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Rather than putting their guests up in hotels throughout the Naples and Bonita Springs area, they can vacation within the community. Its a real convenience, stated Wilson. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. The interior design of Kalea Bays clubhouse has been awarded to highly respected interior design firm, Naples-based CID Design Group. The company will be responsible for the interior design of the clubhouse, guest cottages and towers, as well as assisting with the design direction and planning of the outdoor amenities and landscape areas. CID Design Group is extremely delighted to have been awarded the Kalea Bay project, and more importantly, trusted with this amazing opportunity seeing as its in our home town, stated Jenn Zella, Principal and Director of Design for the firm. According to Zella, the interior design for Kalea Bay will complement the communitys modern seaside, villa-style architecture, accented with the charm of old Florida. CID Design Group has in its possession reclaimed wood from the recent Naples Pier reconstruction, both original wood and from the renovation after the historic Hurricane Donna of 1960. The company plans to integrate the pier wood pieces as design elements within the clubhouse. Construction on the clubhouse is slated for completion in the summer of next year and will coincide with the anticipated move-in of the residents in the first tower, which is also under construction. The 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Six floor plans are available at Kalea Bay with prices currently starting at $1.3 million. Residences 1 and 6 are 4-bedroom/4bath plans with 3,755 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with three-bedrooms plus den and three-and-a-half baths, have 3,835 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/four-bath plans with 3,921 total square feet. All residents will revel in gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence, 9-foot, 2-inch high ceilings and wood floors throughout. The custom kitchens have Wolf and Subzero appliances, a natural gas range, Downsview cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve, stated Wilson. That means all of our residents have front row seats for our spectacular sunsets. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features. Wilson says dramatic views are available to every single resident, not matter which floor they live on. The towers amenities are located on the rooftop, explained Wilson. Including our sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and the beaches. Those beaches include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally in 2015, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center. It is located just north of Wiggins Pass just off Vanderbilt Drive at 13910 Old Coast Road in North Naples.

Find your perfect fit at Raffia PreserveWhen something fits perfectly, it feels right. Whether they are swimming at the resort-style pool, working out in the state-of-the-art fitness center, enjoying play dates at the playground, or sharing stories fireside in the clubroom at the end of a relaxing day, residents at Raffia Preserve often find that feeling is an experience they share in common. A Warm WelcomeBob and Kay DeTeso recognized that feeling during their first visit to Raffia Preserve. Now, a little more than a year later, the DeTesos are enjoying life as residents in one of WCI Communities North Naples communities. The first residents to move into Raffia Preserve in late 2014, the DeTesos considered a half dozen communities when looking for a Naples home. Kay said once they saw the variety of home designs and learned about the reasonable HOA fees at Raffia Preserve, they knew it was the right fit for their new easygoing Southwest Florida lifestyle. The DeTesos relish being Raffia Preserves first residents. Were like pioneers, Bob laughed. The DeTesos will make Raffia Preserve their full-time home this year as they complete the transition from their Massachusetts residence to their new three-bedroom, two-bath Egret Executive Home. They also are looking forward to hosting visiting family from up North. Were only minutes from the beach! said Kay. The DeTesos are already taking advantage of the 7,400-square-foot community clubhouse and resort-style pool. WCI completed Raffia Preserves amenities early so new homeowners can experience ample opportunities to share an active, social lifestyle with their neighbors. The clubhouse events have been a great way to meet people, and were starting yoga classes soon, said Kay. Everyone is so warm and friendly. Bob said that becoming a Raffia Preserve homeowner was a pleasure. WCI left no question unanswered, and I had a lot of questions, he said. We felt included in the process, with the sales team sending us construction update photos in between our Naples visits. The homes at Raffia Preserve are beautiful and well-constructed, said Bob. I would recommend WCI to anyone! Room to GrowThe Prasad family moved from St. Louis to Naples five years ago. But as the children grew, so did the familys need for more space. Our house initially seemed fine, with four bedrooms and 2,500 square feet, said Lisa Prasad. But as our kids start heading into the teenage years, we knew we would need more room for our active family. So the hunt began! Lisa started her search online and narrowed the list to communities in the convenient area of Naples she knew she already loved for its proximity to great schools and easy shopping. Last fall, the Prasads visited Raffia Preserve for the first time. We were first attracted by the location its close to everything, yet tucked away, she said. Our Community Representative really took the time to listen to my needs, said Lisa. There was no pressure whatsoever it was fantastic. The Prasads selected a Pelican Executive Home. With four bedrooms, three baths, den and powder room, the 3,604 square-foot Pelican is particularly popular with families who need plenty of room. Lisa especially likes the privacy afforded by the homes two-story design, in which bedrooms are situated upstairs, away from the main living area. I love the wide hallways and the bright, open feel of the second floor, she said. The loft is the designated kid hangout space for studying and playing video games, and we use the great room together as a family. Lisa said knowing the Raffia Preserve clubhouse was ready and waiting made it easier to make the move. Its great WCI was thinking ahead that it would be important to have a place for neighbors to meet, she added. Raffia Preserves lifestyle director organizes great community activities I appreciate how she makes us feel connected. Its exciting to see the neighborhood taking shape, with families and children of all ages, she said. Offering only 363 single-family homes, Raffia Preserve emphasizes outdoor living within a 184-acre Southwest Florida setting of palm trees, nature preserves and lakes.
