A2 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY 7200 Trail Boulevard, Naples, (239) 598-3330 | Other locations in Ft. Myers, Sarasota, Tarpon Springs and Pinellas Park | roger COMMENTARYGet us some DelbertThey called Shakespeare the bard, but he wasnt the only one who put the hammer of thinking to the anvil of living to make art that can burn holes in the night with its luster. No, sir. I learned that again this week on the telephone with Delbert McClinton, the Texas-born singer-songwriter and member of the Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Fame. Now an unrepentant 75, hell be rolling into the Buckingham Blues Bar (The Buck) in east Lee County for a near-impromptu performance on Saturday night. Mr. McClinton is a bard in his own right, and he can likely sing with a lot more caterwauling authority than Willy boy might have. Im not the only one who thinks so. Equipped with guitar, harmonica or piano and a voice tuned like a Bukowski poem to the gritty splendor of the road, the artists songs eclectic, insightful, covering the four bases of rock, country, blues and soul reflect the complexity of the American heart, Doug Molloy told me. You might have seen Delbert with Bonnie Raitt or on Austin City Limits or with Dave Letterman or winning a Grammy or a lot of other places, but hes more than that, as both Mr. Molloy, a former federal prosecutor and singer, and Tommy Lee Cook owner of the Buck and a rocking bluesman himself know. Hes the greatest, multi-genre artist on the planet, insists Mr. Cook. Delbert does it all. Soul, blues, country, sexy, funny; he writes it all and has a voice beyond compare. Hes the biggest influence on my music for the last 35 years. I have dreamed of having him at The Buck for 15 years, and dreams do come true after all. Like Mr. Cook, Mr. Molloy or me, people listen to Delbert McClinton not just to understand the complex American heart, but to see it at its best and worst, its funniest and bravest, or its most forlorn and lost and to feel good doing it. In effect, Mr. McClinton is the American bard of the beer hall, a natural-born storyteller whose lyrics can carry wit, humor and pathos in the same breath. My parents were proud but they worried about me, he remembers. If you had a son who played in beer halls five nights and in places that closed after them three of those nights, you might worry, too. Musically speaking, he was born on the countertop of an all-night diner. And hes still running out a history that didnt just start in 1961 or 2, when he famously taught John Lennon how to play a decent 10-hole harp. Instead, it started in 1951 in Sweetwater, Texas, a road bump on Highway 20 west of Abilene, when Delbert was 11 years old. It was his Uncle Earl who did it, he told me. I was visiting my aunt and uncle and my favorite cousin Walter, and I was out there in the backyard singing, Hey, Good Lookin. My Uncle Earl was a hard guy he drank and he was mean. He come runnin out the back door and he said, Whos that singin? Theres a pause as Mr. McClinton remembers what happened. It was me, I told him. Well, that was real good, he said. Uncle Earl was a milkman who delivered door to door, and Walter and Delbert helped him for 50 cents a day. When Earls shift ended at 3 a.m. the next morning, he took the boys into the diner where all the men sat drinking coffee, propped Delbert up on the countertop, and told him to sing Hey, Good Lookin. Fortunately for us these 65 years later, and probably for him at that moment, he did what he was told. I got to realize then, when I was a kid, that singing was more than just fun. It calms the beast. His songs will make you want to fight or love, dance, laugh or weep without whining the hat trick in contemporary blues and country music. Its always been that way. By the time he met John Lennon, hed been fronting a Texas band that backed up the likes of Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin Wolf, Lightin Hopkins and Jimmy Reed, the great black American bluesmen. Sure, the nation had Brown vs. the Topeka Board of Education in those days. It had Rosa Parks and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Martin Luther King Jr. But it also had Delbert McClinton and other men and women like him, white artists so compelled by the heart of the music that they never saw the color of its often-black skin. You can hear all that come Saturday night, if youre of a mind to. And in that music youll hear some of what he told me by phone, too. Because I asked or he offered. On how to get old: Well, you gotta have something to live for, man could be anything. For me its music, and Ill play until I cant. On the rise in suicides among older white males: I understand because Ive seen it happen to people. Sometimes they hang on to some kind of f----ing ideology until theyre old, until they realize its barren. Then theyre standing in the wilderness naked and lost. On the beer-hall Americans, the tough, merry crowds hes played for through six decades: Im not disappointed in them, no, not at all. Im disappointed in humanity itself. Were doing such a lousy job in most of the world. Im not sure that thats not the way its supposed to be. Maybe well start over by our own hand. But when we do, lets get us some Delbert and take it into the beautiful new world.

Said with derision and irony, it is an easy way to mock, undermine and discount cultural manifestations believed to be evidence of society trying too hard to do the right thing. For example, you might say an overdose of political correctness is using inclusive language to acknowledge roles and responsibilities that are no longer gender-specific using chairperson vs. chairman; or firefighter instead of fireman, for example. For some, the nicety is a trivial distinction not worth making; but, for others, not so much. If you happen to be the one the argument is about, you may feel you are rendered invisible by a failure to acknowledge difference as fundamental to the human experience; and therefore important to consider in matters of law, policy and social equality. According to multiple sources, the use of political correctness gained popularity among conservatives in the mid-1980s to do a hatchet job on liberalism. It was a convenient way to discredit the imagined excess of leftist politicians making too nice. Conservatives took to the tactic so well the term was rarely associated with the left calling out the right using a reversal of political reasoning. Defenders of liberalism took exception to the rights sneer tactics, accusing it of trying to sabotage voters attention to the inequality and discrimination stemming from differences of race, class, and/or gender. From the lefts point of view, the right was expanding its appeal to ultraconservatives by championing toxic attitudes and threatening behaviors. Polly Toynbee, a journalist for The Guardian, wrote that the right gave permission to and provided a coded cover for all who still want to say out loud Paki, spastic or queer, and, more to the point, to get away with it. Decades later, the tactic is still in use and the conservatives politically correct hit list longer and more insistent. It includes progressive laws and policies that challenge discrimination against immigrants, women, undocumented immigrants, Muslims, and gay and transgender people, for example. Of the conservatives who deftly practice this dark art, none is better than Donald Trump. His presidential campaign to win the 2016 Republican nomination is premised on attacking as politically correct the entirety of moral, ethical and political constraints imposed by principled, democratic values. For him, there is nothing aspirational about being politically correct as an expression of Americans simply trying to be better than we are. Trump is thus free to unfetter a torrent of bad behavior unprecedented in a modern presidential candidate. He is a racist, misogynistic, xenophobe and world-class Pinocchio, the most outrageous, politically incorrect candidate of them all. The more offensive, angry and nonpresidential he behaves, the greater his popularity. Its a bad omen for civil society. So, I should not have been surprised at Trumps reaction to the announcement by the U.S. Treasury secretary that the Treasury will replace past president and slaveholder Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman, former slave and abolitionist, on the front of the $20 bill. However, Jacksons silvery locks wont disappear altogether. He will still appear, but on the back of the bill. You would think, if there is one thing that really is politically correct in a nice, laudatory, noncontroversial way, it is honoring Tubman, the first woman in a century, and the first African-American of either gender, to ever appear on a paper greenback. But kiss my grits, the conservative response defaulted to the accusation of political correctness faster than you can say The Battle of New Orleans. I had forgotten: In retaliation for Frances opposition to the proposed invasion of Iraq, French fries became Freedom fries on the menus in the U.S. House of Representatives. Conservatives took a hard line on their own version of political correctness and rabidly enforced it to de-legitimize opposition to the war, even unto fried potatoes. Trump stuck to the old conservative playbook but played the part magnanimously. He said it was pure political correctness to put Tubman on the front of the $20 bill. He added, I think Harriet Tubman is fantastic, I would love to I would love to leave Andrew Jackson and see if we can maybe come up with another denomination. Maybe we do the $2 bill or we do another bill. His response struck me as woefully and sadly dismissive, spoken like a plantation owner who would free his slaves if he only could. But he cant. The plantation would go to ruin. He says he might be willing to take ol black granny out of the fields, relieve her from picking cotton, and bring her into the Big House to do household chores, such as polishing Gen. Jacksons boots. Once again, Massa has no clue. Harriet Tubman is a force to be reckoned with. She has come to collect her due. 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. Email her at llilly@ and read past blog posts on Tumblr at rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly t t i G m f Tubman should grace the $20 billHarriet Tubman was literally a freedom fighter. The Moses of the Underground Railroad liberated herself and dozens of others from slavery over the years in a biopic-worthy life of bravery and idealism. She has now been selected to eventually replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, bumping him to the back in the worst defeat for Old Hickory since John Quincy Adams stole the presidency from him in 1824. The political imperative at work here is obvious find a woman, preferably a minority, to downgrade one of the dead white males domina ting the curr ency. But the images on the nations currency arent set in stone, and tastes change. Surely some fans of Grover Cleveland were rubbed the wrong way when Jackson supplanted him on the $20 in 1928 (Cleveland himself, improbably, replaced George Washington). And Tubman is inarguably an exemplary figure. She escaped from a Maryland plantation in 1849, walking some 90 miles to her freedom. Tubmans story has been repeated to generations of schoolchildren and is so well-worn she was guided by the North Star and aided by the Underground Railroad that it is easy to forget the terror and pathos of it. Tubman knew the brutality of slavery. As a young woman, she had been grievously injured by a metal weight thrown by an overseer. She left her family behind when she set out for the North. Then she repeatedly returned in trips to save family members and others. The missions were hazardous (she carried a pistol) and sometimes involved near-escapes. During the Civil War, she served as a nurse and a scout, and in later years, she was a suffragist. That said, Tubman is obviously no match for the founders and presidents on the currency now. But if power and influence are the only metric, how do you recognize the contribution of all those who were made deliberately powerless? Tubman is properly understood as a symbol of all the nameless persons held in bondage in early America and of our countrys greatest reform movement, abolitionism. Meanwhile, Andrew Jackson shouldnt be relegated to the ash heap of history. Despite his flaws (he was a slave owner who causally disregarded the humanity of American Indians), he is a formidable American figure who, as a general, won the War of 1812 and, as president, firmly defended the Union from nascent Southern secessionism. If the standards of the 21st century are to be retroactively applied to every significant figure of our past, few will pass the test. One of the ironies of American slavery is that it made clear self-evident, one might say to those suffering under it the deep truth of the natural rights that undergird the American experiment. Tubman recalled thinking prior to her escape, Theres two things Ive got a right to, and these are, Death or Liberty one or the other I mean to have. Is it possible to utter a more American sentiment? In an era of ethnic and gender bean counting, everyone wants to keep score, but Harriet Tubman belongs to all of us. She wont just appear on the twenty, but grace it.

ROOTED IN NAPLESWhat summer camps should really offer The school year is ending soon but not soon enough! To get to that blessed day when we take a break from fighting about packed lunches, we parents still need to clear the hurdle of choosing summer camps. Which enriching experience will keep my special snowflake from melting into a lethargic, cranky, person-shaped puddle by mid-July? The truly cool ones will take a bite out of your wallet, while the inexpensive ones are just loosely organized holding pens with different faces and places for kids to complain about. Guess which ones we typically choose? As a prelude to summer, heres an imaginary list of camps that would truly benefit kids and ensure they grow up in their parents image, which is all we want to see at college graduation anyway. Enjoy! Social Media Camp No, this is not a place where your kids can learn about Internet safety and privacy. Its about choosing content (with appropriate blocks in place!) that wont want to make their parents throw the laptop against the wall. I swear to Beyonce if I have to hear Cookie Swirl C giggle about unboxing Shopkins again Ill have to up my Xanax dosage. No one is that happy about anything. Use your allotted Internet time wisely kids, before you lose it. Foraging for Beginners Apparently kids need to be fed. Constantly. I reached middle school before I was able to fashion a lunch out of stale Cheez-its and old Halloween candy, and Ive considered it a valuable skill ever since. I think my mom appreciated that I could feed myself something rather than demand she fight her way to Publix at the first sign of a dwindling pantry. Why cant we teach first graders how to throw some black olives and a stray oatmeal packet in a dish and enjoy it until we get to the grocery store? Nineties Alternative Immersion Camp Is KidzBop killing you? When our parents saw Marilyn Manson leering out the television screen, they probably felt the way I do when I hear Love Me Harder sung by a middle schooler but at least the man had a unique point of view. The vapidity and latent misogyny of contemporary pop just makes me weep for humanity. Could you imagine something like Pearl Jams Better Man on the radio today? Enforce an appreciation of musical depth using distorted guitar and existential angst. Theyll thank you later. Basic Home Maintenance Camp Who doesnt love mulching? When your children safely arrive in the middle class 20 years from now, you will have spared them the outrage of repeated trips to Home Depot for the correct door measurements. Its never too early to learn the measure twice, cut once rule, but it can be too late. I have the useless blinds in the garage to prove it. Persuasive Whining Camp Forget what your parents said about attracting more flies with honey. Adults should know the truer adage is that squeaky wheels get the grease. Kids will be far more prepared for the workforce when they get a handle on those horrific vocal tics (pleeeeeeaaasssee, you never let meeeeee ) and use that bad habit to their advantage. Drama queens frequently prosper, so put them on the path to success by adding some finesse to their incessant whining. Lets face it: Youll be subjected to plenty of face time with the kids in your dotage and youll want a caretaker who knows who DArcy is. Dont let the opportunity to create the perfect companion escape by enrolling them in horseback riding. What use is that to you? Lindsey Nesmith is currently researching adult summer camps that specialize in boozy Capture the Flag tournaments because thats where the real fun lives.

Its also the 24th anniversary of the partnership between the NALC and Collier Harvest. Bert Paradis, who had been involved with Kentucky Harvest in Louisville, wanted to continue that good work after moving to Naples. One day, while eating at Morrisons Cafeteria, he noticed the staff replaced a tray of cooked green beans with fresher ones, throwing away perfectly good food. He knew those beans could help someone in need. It was long before Collier Harvest had been established as a nonprofit organization in Collier County. At the same time, the NALC held its very first food drive. Collier Harvest volunteers were there, collecting, sorting and packing the food donations that mail carriers had collected along their routes. The food was stored in a garage owned by John Raker, one of the first Collier Harvest trustees and volunteers. In 1994, Collier Harvest moved to retail space in the old Grand Central Station strip center. The space was provided as a donation four to six months at a time, which was long enough to have the food drive and monthly food distributions during the long, hot summer months. When Grand Central Station was torn down 10 years later, the nonprofit was without a home. As a vagabond organization, the board had to find a new strip center every year to accommodate the food drive. Fortunately, someone always came forth with what was needed. In 2012, Mr. Bert Paradis donated a warehouse to serve as a permanent home for Collier Harvest. For the past 10 years, volunteers have collected between 225,000 and 260,000 pounds of food every year from the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. This food helps feed Collier Countys hungry children, families, seniors, the disabled and the unemployed. On the day of the food drive more than 200 volunteers come to the warehouse and anxiously await the arrival of the trucks filled with food. Live music keeps the energy lively, and pizza and snacks provide sustenance for the workers. Participating is easy: You can volunteer that day to help sort, separate and pack the food. You can also leave non-perishable food in a bag by your mailbox and your letter carrier will do the rest. Its a great day of giving and a great way for the community to come together and help our hungry neighbors. Collier Harvest also operates a surplus food program throughout the year, with volunteers picking up surplus food from local restaurants and grocery stores and delivering it to more than 40 food pantries and agencies that feed the hungry on a daily basis. For more information and to sign up to take part in the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, call 455-3663 or visit COURTESY PHOTOSDuring the letter carriers drive, volunteers unload the donated food from trucks, then sort it before its delivered to agencies.

The days are longer, the snowbirds are gone and our roads are wide open. Now we can venture out and have a little fun. So lets make sure our vehicles are up for it, too. Wash and wax It might seem like an obvious place to start, but the importance of a good wash and wax cannot be stressed enough. This is the time of year we see the greatest temperatures and the longest sun exposure. A dirty car is just begging for scratches and tiny debris embedded in the paint. Even worse is oxidization in unprotected clear coats that make what was once a shiny luster into a hazy marble finish. A thorough wash removes harmful debris, and a good wax provides a needed extra layer of protection. So this is a good place to start. Remember to do it a couple of more times over the summer months. Clean interior In the same way dirt can become embedded into the exteriors hot paint, it can also affect interior soft plastics like the dashboard. Plus, old fast food bags have a particularly offensive odor after spending a hot afternoon on the back seat floor. Check battery Heat is a huge enemy of a cars battery. Our tropical climate is a killer for the cars power source and, unfortunately, the most telltale sign of a problem with a battery is a dead one. But if a battery is more than 4 years old and/or the car starts to feel like it is taking longer to start up, be ready to replace. A small investment might prevent a large headache. Check fluids Fluids are as vital to a car as blood is to us. Make sure the heart of your car, its engine, has enough to pump and that it is free of toxins. It only takes a few minutes to check the oil and coolant. Do this when the car has cooled down, and it will prevent a catastrophe in the heat. Also, respect the gauges and warning lights; a car rarely likes running a fever. Horn Hey, its Florida. When everyone else is honking, you should be able to honk, too. Shade Finding a haven from the sunlight is worth it, even if it means parking farther away from the shops. A vehicles interior is like an oven when the car sits in the sun for hours. Not only can a hot car create problems we all hate, such as a scorching seat belt, but also it can accelerate deterioration on many interior components. In places with no shade, its easy to make some with a collapsible sunshade. This is a simple answer that costs less than $10 at most retail stores. Avoid steering wheel covers, however, because over time some can slip during driving. Window tint Its not just for limos anymore. Anyone who has outdoor parking for home and/or work will find an immediate cooling effect even from a mild window tinting. Crack a window More than just shade, ventilation is an automotive interior lifesaver. Of course, were also in the season where a rainstorm can dump a buckets worth of water at a moments notice. One solution is a vent visor that runs along the top edge of a side window and provides a secure lip of protection. Like a little window awning, it lets fresh air pass through the car but keeps water out. Windshield wipers Intense and spontaneous rainstorms happen any time of day around these parts, but especially toward late afternoon when so many of us are on the road headed home from work. Now is the time to remember to keep the first line of defense strong by replacing your windshield wipers. Recharge A/C It used to be that an air-conditioning failure was an expensive problem. It still can be, but most cars built from the early 1990s forward utilize a refrigerant called R-134a. Often weak A/C is just a lack of this gas. Many retail and auto-parts stores sell an at-home recharge kit for $30 or less. I know all of these tips wont be new to everyone, but my hope is that everyone reading this learns a new car care suggestion or two, and then makes a couple of improvements that will add to the life of his/her car. Its just us down here for the summer, so were all in it together.

Federal criteria for consideration to remove panthers from the endangered species list calls for three separate populations of at least 240 cats, including in central or north Florida, and possibly other southeastern states. I would agree with that statement, its more aspirational than realistic, said Aliese Priddy, vice chairwoman of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and owner of JB Ranch near Immokalee, which sits on 9,300 acres in panther territory. Ms. Priddy estimates that she loses as much as 10 percent of her calves to panthers. Last year, she helped draft an FWC statement that touted panther recovery efforts as already resulting in major successes and shifting the focus to panther management instead of recovery. Twenty years ago, this subspecies of Florida panther (Puma concolor coryi) was nearly extinct. Wildlife experts believe there were fewer than 30 left in the wild. In 1995, female Texas cougars were introduced into the population to help increase genetic diversity and reproduction. It worked relatively well. But even with only a few hundred cats or less, that has led to more conflict with humans, including now-record numbers of panthers being hit and killed on the road. More panthers were killed in April than ever before in a single month. Through April 29, nine had died, all but two killed along Southwest Florida highways and roads. There is no record of a panther ever attacking a person. Panther recovery has been successful in that it brought them back from the very brink of extinction, said Jennifer Hecker, director of natural resource policy for the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. But now were concerned about the fate of the panther because even though they have increased, the deaths are far outpacing the documented births. We know that a lot of kittens dont survive to adulthood naturally, and were seeing these road mortalities climb steeply. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has the final say on panther recovery criteria. The national agency, along with the FWC and representatives of the National Park Service, private interests including ranchers, landholders and conservationists, will soon review new science including panther population modeling as they consider revising the definition of a successful panther recovery, said Kipp Frohlich, deputy director with the FWCs Division of Habitat and Species Conservation. The current criteria for panther recovery was created in 2008, Mr. Frohlich said, and is in some ways outdated. Mr. Frohlich, as well as a spokesman for the USFWS, declined to provide more information about how the group might change panther recovery criteria, since it has yet to meet. Ms. Priddy suggested there is not enough undeveloped land left to accommodate two more panther populations as current federal criteria requires. In that case, she said, the questions are: Do we just say were never going to achieve it? Do we say weve done a great job where we are, lets just focus on keeping what we have? Meanwhile, conservationists say housing and other development continues to be the greatest threat to panthers shrinking habitat. Ranches and privately held land such as Ms. Priddys provide valuable natural territory for panthers, keeping the large open spaces they need to roam and reproduce intact along with public areas such as the Big Cypress National Preserve and Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge. The state and others are considering ways to financially compensate ranchers for providing land and a food source that helps protect an endangered species. The Seminole Tribe raises cattle on thousands of acres in South Florida, both in and outside of panther terrain. Alex Johns, the Seminoles natural resource director, said that 8 to 10 percent calf loss is normal, while on a portion of the ranch next to prime panther habitat in Big Cypress Preserve, 22 percent of calves are lost. He attributes the difference mostly to panthers, as well as bears, coyotes and other animals. There is an economic loss to us, Mr. Johns said. But there again, the panther was there first so we understand and accept it. But he adds, If it has an economic impact on private landholders, the panther is going to be looked at in a negative light. And thats not necessarily good for the panther. Conservationists, they have to understand the (panther) population is increasing because the private landholder accommodates the panther by keeping the habitat intact. And theyre providing a food source Without us thered be condominiums and houses and there would be no habitat. As Floridas population continues to grow, many private landowners have a strong financial incentive to sell land to developers. I think its fair to say that most private land in Florida is under some level of development threat, said David Shindle, Florida panther coordinator for the USFWS and a biologist who has worked with panthers since 1998. For instance, a proposal initiated by some of the areas largest and most powerful landholders is aiming for development on about 45,000 acres of panther habitat in Collier County. Those include FWC commissioner Ms. Priddys JB Ranch as well as Alico Inc., Barron Collier Investments and Collier Enterprises Management, Consolidated Citrus Limited Partnership, Heller Bros. Packing Corp. and others. The proposal is called the Eastern Collier Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan. It includes an incidental take permit primarily to allow for the displacement of panthers and other endangered or threatened species that get in the way of developments. But the permit also overrides Endangered Species Act protections that define take as to harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct. Conservation groups and other stakeholders plan to work with the landholders over the course of the next year and a half or more to finalize plans. The landowners have submitted a draft that has many shortcomings and we see this process as the mechanism to make that plan much better, said Elizabeth Fleming, senior Florida representative of Defenders of Wildlife. The biggest concern I have is that regulatory protections would be relaxed in an effort to gain support of these large landowners, Ms. Hecker said. And certainly while we want to gain their support, we cant do it at the expense of upholding the Endangered Species Act and all the protections it provides for the species. PANTHERFrom page 1

Hodges Funeral Home at Naples Memorial Gardens525 111th Avenue North | Naples NOTCHES IN YOUR TEETHIf youve noticed notches in the enamel of your teeth at the point along which the gums meet the tooth (known as the gingival margin), you likely have a form of tooth loss known as abfraction. is loss of tooth structure is not caused by decay. Instead, it can be traced to forces exerted on the teeth associated with tooth grinding (known as bruxism). While there is some disagreement as to how abfraction occurs, it is widely accepted that people who grind their teeth subject them to inordinately high forces that cause enamel to be shed. Treatment is two-fold. First, bruxism must be addressed with a custom nighttime mouth guard. en, the damaged teeth must be lled with bonding agent. We can address any of your dental concerns. We provide individual care to our patients in a comfortable, professional environment. If you know of anyone in need of quality dental care, we would appreciate your referral.

Please call us to schedule an appointment. George M. Mantikas, DMD, LLC A Practice For Optimal Dental FitnessThats entertainmentOne notably hypersuccessful YouTube channel (700,000 subscribers) features Mr. Lauri Vuohensilta of Finland pulverizing various objects (such as a bowling ball) in a 100-ton hydraulic press. (Said Vuohensilta, I think its built into every person the need to destroy something.) That channel is free of charge, but other entrepreneurs have created 24-hour pay-per-month websites and apps offering similarly specialized programming, i.e, Zombie Go Boom (actors taking chain saws to things; $5 a month), Hungry Monk Yoga (posing in orange robes while teaching martial arts; $15 a month), and Lather Fantasies (clothed people excessively shampooing each others hair; $20 a month). (An April Wall Street Journal report noted that the lather channel sounds kinkier than it actually is.) Recurring themes Restaurants in Tokyo continue their vigilance for unique, attention-demanding animal themes to attract diners. Eateries showcasing tableside cats, rabbits, owls, hawks and even snakes have tried their hands, with the latest being Harry, offering food and drink and 20 to 30 teacup-size hedgehogs for diners to fondle while awaiting meal service. The equivalent of $9 brings an hour of cuddling rights. Fine points of the law: In some states, as News of the Weird has reported, visitors with the barest right to occupy property (i.e., invited in for one night but never left) cannot be evicted except by court order, which might take weeks to obtain. In April, owners in Flint, Mich., and Nampa, Idaho, were outraged that nothing could be done quickly to remove squatters from their vacated houses. (The Nampa squatter produced a lease that, though fraudulent, was enough to send the sheriff away.) The two most recent instances of suspects who claimed that the drugs or paraphernalia found in their genitals during police searches were not theirs (but were only being stored there for other people) were Tiffany Flores, 23, arrested in Fellsmere on April 5 with a crack pipe in her vagina, and Deondre Lumpkin, 23, arrested in Largo on March 22 with crack cocaine concealed beneath his genitals (though he did admit owning the marijuana found in his car). Smooth getaway: The December burglary of the Halifax bank in Sale, England, drew attention even though the hour was just after midnight because Jamie Keegan and Marc Shelton (both age 33) had tried to haul away an ATM, but it fell out the back of their van, producing calamitous noise (and sparks in the road). (Also, the ATM had an out of order sign on it, raising still another question about the efficacy of the crime.) In February the Minshull Street Crown Court sentenced the pair to 40 months each in prison. (Bonus: In court, Shelton helpfully corrected the legal record by reminding officials that the pairs crime was actually burglary and not, as written, robbery.) The most recent suspect to have the bright idea to try biting off his fingertips (to avoid identification) was Kirk Kelly, wanted in Tampa for violating probation and picked up by police in February in Akron, Ohio. While being detained in Akron, he had begun to chew the skin off his fingers. Even if he had succeeded, he was easily identified as Kirk Kelly because of his body tattoos (Port Tampa and 3 Tampas area code). More DIY masters: (1) Randy Velthuizen had lived in the house in Everson, Wash., for 20 years, but in April he accidentally set it afire while attempting to kill weeds with a blowtorch. It was an uninsured total loss. Mused Velthuizen, It just made downsizing a hell of a lot easier. (2) In January, four units in an apartment house in midtown Detroit were accidentally burned out by a tenant attempting to kill a bedbug that had bitten him. He had tried to light it up, but by the time the flames were extinguished, he was badly burned, his and three adjacent units were uninhabitable and two dozen others had suffered water damage.

Understanding anxiety disordersPanic, fear, worry dont have to overwhelm your life NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHMany of us worry from time to time. We fret over finances, feel anxious about job interviews or get nervous about social gatherings. These feelings can be normal or even helpful. They may give us a boost of energy or help us focus. But for people with anxiety disorders, they can be overwhelming. Anxiety disorders affect nearly 1 in 5 American adults each year. People with these disorders have feelings of fear and uncertainty that interfere with everyday activities and last for six months or more. Anxiety disorders can also raise your risk for other medical problems such as heart disease, diabetes, substance abuse and depression. The good news is that most anxiety disorders get better with therapy. The course of treatment depends on the type of anxiety disorder. Medications, psychotherapy (talk therapy) or a combination of both can usually relieve troubling symptoms. Anxiety disorders are one of the most treatable mental health problems we see, says Dr. Daniel Pine, an NIH neuroscientist and psychiatrist. Still, for reasons we dont fully understand, most people who have these problems dont get the treatments that could really help them. One of the most common types of anxiety disorder is social anxiety disorder, or social phobia. It affects both women and men equally a total of about 15 million U.S. adults. Without treatment, social phobia can last for years or even a lifetime. People with social phobia may worry for days or weeks before a social event. Theyre often embarrassed, self-conscious and afraid of being judged. They find it hard to talk to others. They might blush, sweat, tremble or feel sick to their stomach when around other people. Other common types of anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, which affects nearly 7 million American adults, and panic disorder, which affects about 6 million. Both are twice as common in women as in men. People with generalized anxiety disorder worry endlessly over everyday issues like health, money or family problems even if they realize theres little cause for concern. They startle easily, cant relax and cant concentrate. They find it hard to fall asleep or stay asleep. They may get headaches, muscle aches or unexplained pains. Symptoms often get worse during times of stress. People with panic disorder have sudden, repeated bouts of fear called panic attacks that last several minutes or more. During a panic attack, they may feel that they cant breathe or that theyre having a heart attack. They may fear loss of control or feel a sense of unreality. Not everyone who has panic attacks will develop panic disorder. But if the attacks recur without warning, creating fear of having another attack at any time, then its likely panic disorder.A family affairAnxiety disorders tend to run in families. But researchers arent certain why some family members develop these conditions while others dont. No specific genes have been found to actually cause an anxiety disorder. Many different factors including genes, stress and the environment have small effects that add up in complex ways to affect a persons risk for these disorders, Dr. Pine says. Many kids with anxiety disorders will outgrow their conditions, but most anxiety problems we see in adults started during their childhood, he adds.Searching for connectionsAnxiety disorders are among the most common psychiatric disorders in children, with an estimated 1 in 3 suffering anxiety at some point during childhood or adolescence, says Dr. Susan Whitfield-Gabrieli, a brain-imaging expert at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. About half of diagnosable mental health disorders start by age 14, so theres a lot of interest in uncovering the factors that might influence the brain by those early teen years, Dr. HEALTHY LIVING

Choosing Between Ultherapy and a Facelift...Whitfield-Gabrieli says. She is launching an NIH-funded study to create detailed MRI images of the brains of more than 200 teens ages 14-15, some with and some without anxiety or depression. The scientists will then assess what brain structures and activities might be linked to these conditions. The study is part of NIHs Human Connectome Project, in which research teams across the country are studying the complex brain connections that affect health and disease. Dr. Whitfield-Gabrieli and her colleagues have shown that analysis of brain connections might help predict which adults with social phobia will likely respond to cognitive behavioral therapy. CBT is a type of talk therapy known to be effective for people with anxiety disorders. It helps them change their thinking patterns and how they react to anxiety-provoking situations. But it doesnt work for everyone. Of 38 adults with social phobia, those who responded best after three months of CBT had similar patterns of brain connections. This brain analysis led to major improvement, compared to a clinicians assessment alone, in predicting treatment response. Larger studies will be needed to confirm the benefits of the approach. Ultimately, we hope that brain imaging will help us predict clinical outcomes and actually tailor the treatment to each individual to know whether theyll respond best to psychotherapy or to certain medications, Dr. WhitfieldGabrieli says.The emotional elementOther researchers are focusing on our emotions and our ability to adjust them. We want to understand not only how emotions can help us but also how they can create difficulties if theyre of the wrong intensity or the wrong type for a particular situation, says Dr. James Gross, a clinical psychologist at Stanford University. We all use different strategies to adjust our emotions, often without thinking about it. If something makes you angry, you might try to tamp down your emotion to avoid making a scene. If something annoys you, you might try to ignore it, modify it or entirely avoid it. But these strategies can turn harmful over time. For instance, people with social phobia might decide to avoid attending a professional conference so they can keep their anxiety in check. That makes them lose opportunities at work and miss chances to meet people and make friends. Dr. Gross and others are examining the differences between how people with and without anxiety disorders regulate their emotions. Were finding that CBT is helpful in part because it teaches people to more effectively use emotion regulation strategies, he says. They then become more competent in their ability to use these strategies in their everyday lives. Dr. Pine adds that it is important to be aware that many different kinds of treatments are available, and that people with anxiety disorders tend to have very good responses to those treatments. The best way to start, he says, is by talking with your physician. If youre a parent, talk with your childs pediatrician. These health professionals are generally prepared to help identify such problems and help patients get the appropriate care they need.

PLA033-1Robert Wright Robert Wright Insurance Agency239-566-3990 PET TALESRehoming a pet: When the unthinkable happens BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickAt first, Clooney loved Esmeralda. He treated her gently, and everything was perfect. Then his love turned lethal. Clooney began to stalk her, lying in wait and attacking. Esmeralda feared for her life. Clooney did not ever draw blood, but I was right there and intervened instantly, says Deborah Wood of Hillsboro, Ore. I was truly afraid he would seriously hurt her or even kill her. Clooney is 12 pounds of big, powerful cat. Esmeralda is 5 pounds of passive dog. In the past, Clooney lived happily with the two papillons Ms. Wood had when she adopted the cat. After the death of her last papillon, she looked for a small, gentle dog that Clooney would like and adopted Esmeralda, a Chihuahua mix. But after their auspicious beginning, Clooney became increasingly aggressive toward the little dog. He batted at her with his paw, making her cower or run. He attacked when she came in through the door. The attacks began as swats of his paw with the claws in, and eventually became full attacks with him grabbing the dog and rabbit-kicking her, Ms. Wood says. Esmeralda shook in fear when wed return from walks and would struggle to not come inside. Ms. Wood is an experienced pet owner, and as the aggression problem developed, she tried everything to make the situation work. She separated the two, placed Clooney on Prozac prescribed by her veterinarian and fed a cat food meant to have calming properties. She placed a Feliway diffuser in each room to help Clooney feel relaxed and dosed the water dish with Rescue Remedy. She had her veterinarian perform blood work on Clooney to rule out thyroid and other medical problems that can cause aggression. She gave Clooney attention on his own and played with him every day. For many cases of feline aggression, these steps would have resolved the problem, but nothing worked. Clooney was increasingly obsessed with Esmeralda. The day Ms. Wood knew she needed to rehome one of them was when the smoke detector went off in Esmeraldas room because the battery needed replacing. While I wrestled the ladder into the room, Clooney darted between my feet and attacked Esmeralda, Ms. Wood says. Imagine a cat running into a room with a blaring smoke detector screeching away. That is a cat that wants to attack. Making the decision to place one of her pets in a new home was agonizing. Ms. Wood loved Clooney, and shed had him longer four years. If the aggression toward the dog had started when I adopted her, I would have given up the dog, Ms. Wood says. However, by the time it developed, I was really bonded to both of them. Ultimately, Ms. Wood decided to rehome Clooney. He was the one who was aggressive, and I feared that if I kept him, I would have problems between him and future pets. Keeping Esmeralda gives me the ability to have future pets in the household with her. I was fortunate that both pets were very adoptable. If one had not been adoptable, I would have kept that one. After trying desperately to place Clooney with someone she knew, including offering to pay for his pet insurance and promoting him on Facebook, Ms. Wood turned to a local shelter that specializes in cats. Clooney was adopted within two days of becoming available. Its easy to give people grief for making the decision to place a pet, but Ms. Woods story is not uncommon. She says friends shared stories of pets who had attacked and even killed other pets. All said they wished they had rehomed the animals earlier. I struggle with the fact that I do not know the adopter, but it was the best choice I had under the circumstances. Those feelings are balanced by Esmeraldas happiness. She wags her tail when we come home rather than shaking in fear. Pets of the Week>> Andy is a 3-yearold black mouth cur who weighs 55 pounds.

And, this year, Im dedicated to making sure you dont screw it up. Now, if you have a mother, the only way to fail this holiday is by forgetting it and doing nothing at all. Honestly, offspring, we mothers still have the slightly torn, crinkled, fading, construction-paper card your kindergarten teacher made us the one where she wrote Happy Mothers Day and put your sweet, little water colored handprint on it. My perfect, darling, beloved only child, who just recently aged out of his 20s, could give me a cardboard drink coaster with Mom scrawled on it and Id weep with joy and frame it. Seriously, if you lived in my womb for nine months and I gave birth to you after 12 long, harrowing, miserable hours of labor with no epidural, as long as you just write Happy Mothers Day on my Facebook page this Sunday, youre in the clear. Its the partners of mothers who seem to have to work a little harder. Recently, a friend told me that her husband doesnt do anything for her on Mothers Day, and shes OK with that because, as she points out, shes not his mother. I beg to differ. Im a mother and my significant other, whether that person is the other parent to my children or not, needs to do something special for me on Mothers Day because being a mom is a pretty big deal and it deserves some recognition. I know several women in my circle of friends who are long-divorced from the fathers of their children, and yet they still get flowers or cards on Mothers Day from their exes. Well-played, gentlemen, wellplayed indeed. Im remarried, hes remarried and our kids are in their 20s, one friend told me, but still, he sends a beautiful bouquet every year with a card thanking me for being such a great mom to our kids. I know. I wiped away a tear, too! But sometimes there are missteps. One friend told her husband she wanted lingerie for Mothers Day and he got her two fully functioning bras that hide back fat (hey, at least he tried). Another girlfriend received the dreaded vacuum cleaner (I cant believe dudes still buy women vacuum cleaners). And yet another friend gets cold, hard cash from her husband every year on Mothers Day (shes not exactly complaining, but yeah NO). In the Best Mothers Day gift category, soon after a friend had her first baby, her dear husband gave her a Tiffany locket with the word Mom engraved on it. (Note to Mothers Day gift givers: You absolutely CANNOT go wrong with anything shiny that comes in a Tiffany blue box. You are welcome.) Another friend, a single mom who has three rambunctious boys, got a spa day from her boyfriend and came home to a clean house. Its the little things, you guys. For instance, let your lady sleep in this Sunday while you feed the kids. Breakfast in bed is always a mom-pleaser. And just FYI, well take mimosas or bloody Marys over pancakes, please and thank you (TRUST me on this). I always celebrate my husband on Fathers Day because hes a loving, caring dad to his adult kids, and he always does something special for me on Mothers Day. Usually its an Apple product (Todd is very practical, God love him) and a sweet card, but, this year hes whisking me away to Miami Beach for Mothers Day weekend and I couldnt be more excited. So, again, I say to the kids: Make sure you call your mom on Mothers Day. A card and flowers as well would be a real treat, but we understand if thats too much trouble. SIGH. As for all you fathers, do your best to dazzle the woman who brought your offspring into this world if not with gifts, then with extra sleep, a clean kitchen and some Sunday cocktails. Oh, and chocolates. I cant believe I forgot to mention chocolates. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 BUSINESS B3 UF: Consumer sentiment reflects widespread concern over future THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA Consumer sentiment fell 3.5 points in April to 90.6, according to the latest University of Florida consumer survey. The reading is the lowest since October and lower than the previous 12-month average. Of the five components that make up the index, four decreased and only one increased. Perceptions of ones personal financial situation now compared with a year ago showed the greatest decline in this months reading, a 5.8-point change from 84.2 to 78.4. The decline in the perception of personal finances explains around one-third of the overall change in the index. The biggest drop was among those age 60 and older, but this lower perception is shared in general by all Floridians. said Hector Sandoval, director of the analysis at UFs Bureau of Economic and Business Research. Perceptions as to whether now is a good time to buy a big-ticket item, such as an automobile, inched up seven-tenths of a point to 102.1. Expectations of personal finances a year from now went down by 4.2 points to 101.5. Most of the pessimism in April stems from expectations about future conditions, which account for 70 percent of the drop in the consumer sentiment index, Mr. Sandoval said. While unfavorable views of the future were shared by all Floridians independent of their gender, age and income level, the sharpest declines were seen among those age 60 and older and those with income under $50,000. The gloomy future outlook of those 60 and older may be influenced by the flurry of recent news stories about the April 29 deadline for Social Security changes enacted by Congress last fall. While few seniors are directly affected by closing the file-andsuspend loophole, many find it unsettling to realize that Congress can make changes to the bedrock of retiree income. The unemployment rate in Florida declined again in March, from 5.0 percent to 4.9 percent. The number of jobs added in March statewide was 234,300, up 3,000 compared to the previous month. Notably, this is the smallest monthly gain since May 2012, Mr. Sandoval said. The industry gaining the most jobs was professional and business services, followed by education and health services, and then the trade, transportation and utilities industry. In the week ending April 16, the number of people in the U.S. filing for unemployment insurance fell to its lowest level since November 1973. The latest information for Florida also shows an important reduction in the initial claim of unemployment benefits during April. Furthermore, the fourweek moving average, which smooths the weekly variation, displays the same pattern. The weekly claims of unemployment insurance typically reflect what is presently going on in the economy. Labor market conditions in Florida continue to be favorable in general, hence the expectation was for a slight increase in consumer sentiment rather than a reversal, Mr. Sandoval said.

Yes, Mr. Peraltas field. I have to prepare the field for him, but hell test his stuff in the worst, the hottest time of the year. Im doing it because I can learn so much, he explains. And if it works in the summer, here? Imagine how well it might do when we start planting again for fall (about Aug. 15). Mr. Peralta is not atypical of local food producers in southern Florida. While the rest of the continent swells like a pregnant mother with the bounty of field-grown summer food, the rhythms of summer work in Palm Beach, Charlotte, Lee or Collier counties are entirely different. That affects resident customers who relish the local produce and in the case of the 85-acre Worden Farm in Charlotte County, the local, completely organic produce. Which is why the Wordens, Eva and Chris, host in-season gatherings to teach people how to can, dry or freeze their food for summer use, not winter use as elsewhere. Our farm membership program (boxes of fresh food delivered weekly from as far south as Naples to as far north as Sarasota) ends in mid-April, and our farmers markets end at the end of May, explains Eva Worden. As good fortune would have it, however, people can now begin signing up for next years farm membership with the Wordens $580 or about $29 a week for boxes of the freshest organic produce delivered for 20 weeks, from December to April, right to the doors of homes, schools, churches, marinas, clubs, restaurants or other locations, as requested. After May we arent harvesting any vegetables, so we have a gradual shift as we ramp down in production, Mrs. Worden says. The six-week period were in right now is when we prepare fields for cover crops. As organic farmers, we grow cover crops, which include a variety of grasses and legumes. They help to fix nitrogen. The grasses help to draw any residual nitrogen from the soil up into the plants and store them until theyre mowed and disked in, and they decompose prior to the (late summer) planting of the vegetable crop. Meanwhile, as May heats up, the farm still has the same warm-season crops it did in the early fall, Mrs. Worden says: cover squashes like zucchini, yellow squash, pattipans, cucumbers, greens. We still have some carrots and broccoli, but those will end over the coming weeks, and we have a fair amount of radishes and green beans, still. But the quantity decreases and the challenges of increase. Thats the truth. With summer comes insect pressure shes not talking about politicians running for the White House, by the way and the potential for heavy floods. We have found that floods (and standing water in the fields) actually assists in our prevention of detrimental nematodes (parasitic, microscopic worms that thrive in sand and soil). In Palm Beach Countys Boynton Beach, meanwhile, fourth-generation farmer Steve Bedner and his wife, Marie Bedner, do the summer differently than some other local farmers: they put their 1,500 acres of commercial crops and their 80 acres of crops grown just for local people in fallow fields, and go north to find the best produce they can in the Garden State (New Jersey) or Pennsylv ania. Then they ship it back and sell it through the summer in their retail stores in Boynton Beach and the new site, downtown Delray Beach. Its too hot and too wet to grow anything in the summer here, says Mrs. Bedner. So we let the land go dormant, and were about getting wrapped up now. The plants arent too happy. So when we come out of season, we still purchase from small farms in the North that have the same growing methods we do. But the Bedners dont just buy food sight unseen from these Garden State farms they drive up there to inspect not just the produce theyll sell, but the growing methods. Were looking for fields that are in good condition, where the produce sometimes isnt the prettiest but the taste and quality are there, explains Mrs. Bedner. We get to know their growing habits. We go to different parts and see what areas are growing which produce. And back in Palm Beach County, where a lot of Pennsylv anians and New Jerseyites live, a good debate is always simmering: Whose tomatoes and corn are better, the Bedners or the Garden States? That goes without saying. Come late summer, the family starts leaning toward fall and winter with a lot of hard work. Again. We start prepping the land at the end of August or the beginning of September weve pushed it back farther and farther in recent years because weve encountered so much rain that its not worthwhile (to rush), Mrs. Bedner notes. And finally, about 20 weeks from now, the Bedners offer a kickoff nod to their Northern clients by doing a fall festival the last weekend in September. Since we cant grow pumpkins, we (import them). We make a faux field, plant cucumber vines and place pumpkins. We will start picking our own produce about mid-November. Then, with the summer-nother only a fading memory, itll be just a winternother. BLOOMFrom page 1 Beekeeper summer The most summer-nother thing in subtropical farming is not vegetables but honeybees. Here, beekeeper Claudia Silveira describes how work for these unique farmers increases rather than diminishes come summer. This time of year honeybee populations begin to grow and the hives become more active. As plants bloom, grow and reproduce, its time to add supers to the hives. Orange trees are well-known for producing lots of nectar, which honeybees transform in delicious orange-blossom honey that bloom begins in February and March. Beekeepers start moving their hives to the orange groves, keeping them there through mid-April, when saw palmetto is in bloom. A native palm, its one of the main nectar sources for honeybees from now into summer. For beekeepers, when nectar ows its also time to split the hives and double or triple the amount of colonies. We have to control swarming of their hives and start help with honeybee rescue, for the swarming season. The black mangrove and sea grape will begin their blooming now, too, along the coast, although development has diminished the production of this delicious honey. By June, the cabbage palm and melaleuca will be in bloom, supplementing the nectar forage for honeybees. By July, most honey has been produced in the apiaries and processed by local beekeepers in their honey houses. This is the end of the main late spring-summer nectar ow. But theres a second nectar ow that will start again with Brazilian pepper. By September, it becomes a main fall nectar ow and the bees will produce a rich and medicinal Brazilian pepper honey. Few people know that the Brazilian pepper nectar will be a great help for honeybees to survive the winter, when no nectar is available. Note: Claudia Silveira ( sells her honey in Naples at the Pine Ridge Farms Market on Sunday afternoons, and in Fort Myers at the GreenMarket at the Alliance for the Arts on Saturday mornings.

MONEY & INVESTINGReport misses mark on likelihood of disruptive innovationsThe global consulting company, McKinsey & Co, published a provocative research report entitled Diminishing Returns: Why Investors May Need to Lower Their Expectations in late April. As you can probably guess by the title, the conclusion of the authors is not positive news for investors. The paper asserts that the high overall investment returns over the past couple of decades are not sustainable and that returns over the next 20 to 30 years will be much lower. So why does McKinsey believe this? And should an investor buy into this prediction? The reports basic premise is that many of the key drivers of investment performance since the 1980s are either fading or reversing themselves. For example, it points to declining interest rates producing outsized returns on bond portfolios. Clearly, with rates in most industrialized counties now close to zero, rates cannot fall any further so bond investors can no longer expect price appreciation on their bonds to supplement their low interest returns. In another example, the paper shows how declining inflation and wages have significantly added to corporate profits. But now wages are starting to rise and overall inflation seems like it has bottomed out as well and is starting to increase. The report also illustrates several other examples of other long-term negative trends for corporations, including increased competition from emerging markets and how the Internet and better infrastructure have made it easier for start-up businesses to steal market share from large corporations and compress margins. So in reviewing the McKinsey document, I think some of their conclusions are spot on, while I would disagree with others. Can investors expect to see 5 percent yields from Treasury bonds in the near future? Probably not. In fact, I would expect to see potentially negative returns for very highly rated bonds as interest rates revert to higher, longterm averages.But I completely disagree with the report with regard to corporate profits. In the short term, higher wages will drag down profits. But in the long-term, this trend creates wealthier new customers that have the ability to consume a greater amount of goods going forward. Similarly, competition will bring down corporate profits in the near term but this will also lead to more efficiencies and innovation going forward, which can only benefit various industries. History has shown that a lack of competition will lead to stagnation within an industry. Just think what communication would be like today if AT&T was never broken up and still was the only telephone and Internet provider in the country. But I think the biggest flaw in the report was the assumption that the status quo would prevail and there would be no great disruptive breakthroughs in the years ahead. Who can say where the next personal computer or Internet revolution will come from? Will it be virtual reality? Artificial intelligence? Biotechnological breakthrough? These unexpected innovations, in my opinion, are what really will drive investment returns as companies rush to profit off these advances. This is why I am still optimistic with regard to investing and why I think the pundits will be shown to be completely wrong on this topic. Time on your hands?

The two companies merged in 2002 and then split up in 2012, creating me. Today, based in Houston, Im a diversified energy company, processing, transporting, storing and selling fuels and products globally.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Return on Equity, ExplainedUnderstanding what a companys return on equity (ROE) tells you, and what its limits are, can help you be a better investor. In a nutshell, ROE reflects how effectively management is using shareholder money. There are many things a company can do with its profits, such as pay down debt, pay shareholders a dividend, buy back shares of the company stock or reinvest in operations. Return on equity reveals how effectively reinvested earnings and capital that shareholders originally invested in the company are generating additional earnings. For example, the company might use profits to acquire a smaller company that has valuable technology. Or it might build a new factory, increasing output and sales. You can find ROEs online, such as at (look up a companys info and then click on Statistics), but its good to understand how the number is derived. To calculate ROE, you take a companys past years worth of earnings (often referred to as net income) and divide it by the average shareholder equity for the period. Earnings are found on the companys income statement, and shareholder equity on the balance sheet. Consider Hasbro. Its ROE was recently 29 percent. Its helpful to see whether a companys ROE is rising or falling, which you can look up at sites such as Hasbros ROE has generally risen over the past decade. Its also instructive to compare a company with its peers. Mattels ROE was a slimmer 13 percent, and it has fallen in recent years. Both companies have been doing well lately, Hasbro in part due to Disney licensing and Mattel in part due to its acquisition of MEGA Brand construction toys. A final thing to keep in mind is that ROE can be inflated by high debt, so cast an eye on a companys balance sheet to see how debt-laden it is. Or look for a debt-to-equity ratio under 1.0, or even 0.50. Hasbros debt-to-equity ratio was recently 0.93, having risen over the past decade, while Mattels is lower, at 0.68, and has also risen. Would Have Missed the MeltdownsMy dumbest mistake was not getting out of the stock market at various times when I knew it was overinflated, such as 2001, 2002 and 2006. If Id gotten out at those times, I would have avoided some market meltdowns and slowdowns. C.S., onlineThe Fool Responds: Its easy to think that way, with a lot of hindsight, but its unrealistic. Theres no way to know when the market will tumble, so getting out when you think it will soon fall can mean that you miss out on further gains. (You cant and wont know the best time to get back in, either.) In 2012 and 2013, for example, after the S&P 500 gained, respectively, 16 percent and 32 percent (well above its long-term annual average of close to 10 percent), it would have been reasonable to think it was due for a fall. But in 2014, it gained 14 percent.A JPMorgan Asset Management study found that investors who stayed in the S&P 500 nonstop from 1993 to 2013 (through many ups and downs) would have enjoyed an annual average return of 9.2 percent. Those who jumped in and out and missed the 10 best days during that period would have seen their average gain shrink to 5.4 percent.All that said, if you hold a particular individual stock and you feel its overvalued Pfizer PfinancesIf youre looking to invest for the long term in a solid, income-generating company, take a gander at pharmaceutical titan Pfizer (NYSE: PFE). Its drug pipeline is one of the largest in the world, recently featuring 90 combined clinical and registration trials focused on six therapeutic areas. Fully 59 of those studies involved new molecular entities, and were not just label expansion opportunities for existing drugs (i.e., when an existing drug is tested for a new application). Pfizer sports a stellar vaccine portfolio and is developing biosimilar drugs that aim to take market share from major blockbuster drugs. With a market value near $200 billion, Pfizer is a major cash generator, netting more than $15 billion in free cash flow in seven of the past 10 years, with the worst year being close to $10 billion. That reflects a solid long-term business model. It also doesnt hurt that demand for the products Pfizer sells is inelastic, as people cant choose when theyre going to get sick and dont usually view their medicines as optional. Thus, Pfizers products are generally recession-proof. On top of all that, Pfizers stock recently yielded 3.6 percent and its payout has increased by an annual average of 8 percent over the past five years. Pfizer has acquired many companies over the years and may also produce value by spinning off some of its businesses. I trace my roots back to 1922, when three scientists founded the American Appliance Company. My early focus on refrigeration soon shifted to electronics, and after buying Amana Refrigeration in 1965, I introduced the first countertop microwave oven for consumers. I developed computers for NASA that helped astronauts land on the moon. Today, based in Massachusetts, Im a global specialist in the defense, civil government and cybersecurity markets. My wares have included radar systems, missiles, missile guidance systems, maritime safety equipment and business jets. My 60,000-plus employees serve customers in more than 80 countries. Who am I? (Answer: Raytheon) Meet the Pure PlaysQWhats a pure play company? A.T., Walnut Creek, Calif.AIts one that is focused on a single industry or product or service. Why might you be interested in one? Well, imagine that youre very bullish about the future of a particular business, such as hoverboards. You could invest in a company that makes lots of things including hoverboards or in one that makes only hoverboards. The latter is a pure play, and investing in it means your return will be tied solely to its success in hoverboards. The former companys operations are more diversified, which can reduce risk. General Electric, for example, involved in mining, energy, aviation, health care, water, transportation and more, wont sink or swim based on the fortunes of any one industry. Coca-Cola is a pure play in beverages, while PepsiCo, which has a significant snack business (Lays, Doritos, etc.), is not. and other tech giants are involved in cloud computing, but theyre not pure plays in it, as some smaller companies are. An advantage of pure plays is that their managements arent spreading their time and attention over many different businesses and are therefore more focused. ***QCan you explain what a market maker is? B.W., Columbia, Mo.AWhen you buy stock, it may seem like youre getting the shares directly from a shareholder whos selling, but stocks are typically bought and sold through market makers. They keep the market fluid and profit by taking some or all of the difference between the purchase and sale price (the spread). They often keep some shares in inventory, too, in case someone wants to buy shares that no one is offering at the time. Want more information about stocks?

Open House Sunday 1-4 NOW AVAILABLE IN BAY FOREST To Receive Your FREEWest of 41 Market Report, visit March brings slight downshift in Bonita-Estero housing market THE BONITA SPRINGS-ESTEROAssociation of RealtorsActivity in the Bonita Springs and Estero housing market saw a downshift in sales for March and overall for the first quarter of 2016, according to the most recent report from the Bonita Springs-Estero Association of Realtors. However, the BEAR media committee report adds, more inventory continues to come into the market for a positive outlook for buyers and sellers in the coming months. Overall, the median close price was 9 percent higher than it was for the 12 months ending March 2015. Average days on market remained stable. Additionally, all signs are pointing to more overall stability in the market. Were moving toward a more level market, Elizabeth Mancini, managing broker of Premier Sothebys International Realty in Bonita Springs said. Evidence of this is seen with more year-round activity as opposed to just seasonal activity. This presents a good opportunity for sellers. Broker Jeff Tiefenbach of the Bonita office of Keller Williams Elite Realty agrees and notes the difference in buyers. Were also seeing buyers who are looking to move to the area fulltime and who have a more urgent need to buy now as opposed to those looking for a part-time residence, and they are picking up the A-plus properties quickly, Mr. Tiefenbach said. Regarding a five-month downshift in the market, buyers are still looking, but the rush to buy was not present in early 2016 as in past years. The downshift affected sales and pending sales because demand is catching up to inventory. The downshift in quarter one simply means that accrued demand is being satisfied, explained Roger Brunswick, broker associate with John R. Wood Properties. What was also evident in quarter one was that traditional resales are in competition with new construction. Sellers have been frustrated by the longer sales cycle, D. Michael Burke, 2016 BEAR president of Keller Williams Elite Realty in Bonita Springs, said. In regards to new construction competition, sellers need to be mindful and realistic about their listing prices and the condition of the property. A pristine property that is well-priced is the key to getting activity and an offer. Also, while buyers are still proceeding with caution, the BEAR media committee agrees that buyers should not wait to make an offer on A-plus properties, as those properties will continue to sell quickly through spring and summer. The number of closed sales, including single-family homes and condos, for the 12 months ending March 2016 was 3,006 units as compared to 3,247 units for 12 months ending March 2015, a 7 percent decrease. Pending sales saw a decrease of 17 percent, down to 2,676 units from 3,223 units. The days on market in the Bonita Springs-Estero market, which was 72 days, continues to remain stable with a slight change from 77 days from the 12 months ending February 2016. The 2016 March market report also showed 792 units of inventory for single-family homes and 732 units for condominiums.

C15 CuisineMediterranos appeal goes far beyond its fresh, well-executed food. C27 BY ALAN SCULLEYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentIts been 13 years since Styx has released an album of new material. But singer/keyboardist Lawrence Gowan says having songs to record has not been the issue. Whats funny is that during any given year, there are all kinds of new pieces that get brought up at sound check to jam on, Gowan said in a recent phone interview. The band plays Tuesday, May 10, at Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers. We constantly have new stuff. Its just the time to finish it and to produce it and focus some sort of promotion on it, its more and more difficult for us because theres this insatiable demand for the band to play live. And were happy to meet that demand. And the demand (between) us to make new music, sometimes over the last few years, we get enough of that experience (of enjoying new songs) by just playing amongst ourselves, believe it or not, without having to go through the entire process.

Consultations are available! BEFORE AFTER A DERMATOLOGY EVENT WORK IN PROGRESSThis is the fifth installment of a fivepart 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 years old 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. The path back was a pale line surrounded by black night. As Jesse neared the trailer, she saw Corbin sitting on the steps, his elbows propped on his knees. He took a long pull from a fresh bottle of Old Crow then set it on the step beside him. Where you been? he asked as she approached. Walking, Jesse said. He lifted the bottle and took another drink. You should be careful out there in the dark. All kinds of dangerous things. Gators. Raccoons. Raccoons? Corbin shrugged. They get aggressive. Thats like watching out for squirrels. Now those are some mean f-----s. Jesse laughed, covering her mouth, and sat on the step next to him. Corbin passed her the bottle. She took a small sip and grimaced as it burned its way down. Thats terrible. Corbin grinned. I know. In a nearby tree, an owl hooted and somewhere farther off another owl gave an answering call. Corbin took a slow sip of the bourbon and kept the bottle balanced between his hands. I cant figure you out, he said after a while. Jesse waited for the owls to call again, but they had gone quiet. My grandma used to say Im filled with smoke, she said. What does that mean? It means its hard to see inside me. Theres all this I dont know, smoke, I guess in the way. She said its a trick to keep people from getting close. Jesse stopped and scratched at a mosquito bite on her leg. Whats behind the smoke? Corbin asked. Thats what Im trying to figure out. They sat surrounded by night sounds the shift of palm fronds, the stir of fallen leaves, the barely perceptible flap of predatory wings. On the highway, a truck rattled past. When it had moved off down the road and silence resettled, Jesse said, Last year, my class took a field trip into the swamp. The woman giving the tour, a park ranger, she showed us all these things. Pickerel weed and bladderwort and tiny orchids the size of your thumbnail. She pulled her knees in and draped herself over them, so that her chin fit in the crook where they came together. The ranger told us about this litter of panther kittens, three of them. Shed gone out with a biologist when the litter was just a couple of weeks old. The mama was off hunting, and they went in and weighed the kittens and measured them. They were like little birds, she said. Smaller than a cucumber. The owl hooted again, and Jesse paused to wait for the answered call. It came from a stand of Australian pines. Not too long after that, she went on, a brush fire started up after a lightning strike. The mama panther got away, but not the kittens. They burned up with the pine needles and the weeds. Jesse fell silent. The night was windless and still. Corbin lit a cigarette, and it hung smoking between his fingers. When Jesse reached for it, he passed it to her. Are you ever afraid of whats inside you? she asked, fitting the filter between her lips. It scares the hell out of me, Corbin said. She took a shallow smoke, coughed and passed the cigarette back. Corbin flicked the ash off the end. Are you afraid of dying? Jesse asked. He took the last drag on the cigarette and then ground it out in the dirt. He stood and dusted his hands on his jeans. I think we better call it a night. That night, Jesse dreamed the cane fields by her house were burning. Green stalks of sugarcane towered over her, their leaves rustling, and she could hear the fire bearing down like a freight train approaching. The sky was black with smoke. Corbin stood to one side and next to him, his hands hanging loose at his sides, was her father. Neither man looked at Jesse. Her father scuffed at the dirt with his work boot, and as Jesse watched he pulled a a p s d s artis SEE WORK, C8 My grandma used to say Im filled with smoke, she said. What does that mean?

University Press of Florida. 224 pages. Hardcover $19.95. What a surprising breath of fresh air this is. Marty Jourards book is an insiders story of how Gainesville developed into an important, though relatively isolated, capital of American popular music rock and roll in particular. While Mr. Jourard offers a good deal of interesting speculation about why this happened, the fun of the book is in watching it happen. An effective narrative style; a compelling array of facts and profiles; and a lowkey, comfortable sense of authority are hallmarks of Marty Jourards infectious blend of remembrance and research. Organized chronologically, Music Everywhere begins at the beginning of rock and roll history, 1955, with a song written by a Gainesville musician named Tommy Durden. That song, soon after recast as Heartbreak Hotel, sits on the front porch of the black and white, music, country and urban music, that in various combinations became the prevailing American popular music. Mr. Jourard rocks back and forth between the macrocosm of larger trends (the Beatles invasion and takeover, the growth of the hippie counterculture) and the daily lives of aspiring musicians living in or passing through Floridas heartland. He also notes the communitys happy support of and identification with a music culture. This sometimes means the role of the University of Florida in supporting live performances and generally interacting with the music culture that is growing up along with the burgeoning university. And then there is the dependable marijuana production. Musicians need audiences, and University of Florida students showed up to hear the cover bands and the bands focused on original songs bands that sharpened their skills on and off campus. Can you guess the outstanding musicians you might recognize who are part of Marty Jourardss Gainesville R & R tapestry? Well theres Stephen Stills, a strong solo performer better known from his group work in Crosby, Stills, and Nash (and sometimes Young). Theres Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, one of the worlds best-selling bands ever. Don Felder and Bernie Leadon went from gigs in Gainesville to becoming part of the endlessly chart-topping Eagles. The list goes on, and the stories Mr. Jourard tells about them are most engaging. Marty Jourard himself hit it big as part of The Motels in the 1980s. The book provides insights into the life of professional musicians, whether famous or obscure or in between. More importantly, it is an effective study of a community. The people writing, performing and recording music cannot flourish without the support of others who work in the music industry. It is with a sense of reverence that Mr. Jourard writes about the owner of Liphams music company whose shop became a refuge for the Gainesville musicians. He writes, The musicians and the store served one another; players met other players there, heard other players there, and lusted after the same shiny new guitars that hung behind the counter saying, hold me ... try me ... buy me! The store made money. The music scene has a place you could hang out. Mr. Jourard also reminds us of how important it is for people to put risk money into performance venues and music festivals. He provides a detailed account of how, in Gainesville, these ancillary efforts nourished and were nourished by the creative artists. Many of the musicians who apprenticed in Gainesville bands went on to be part of touring bands and recording studio ensembles supporting the performances of headliners like Aretha Franklin and Jackson Browne. If you enjoy entertainment history and biography, this is a book for your collection. If you enjoy reading about aspects of Florida culture, Music Everywhere will be an enjoyable companion. Mr. Jourards compilation of photographs and reproductions of event posters and ads enhances the readers experience. The book also includes chapter notes and an appendix of live performances in Gainesville from 1960 through 1976. 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. s n a b f a t JOURARD


C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYstreet vendor who learns how to move about in high society is a classic. But the Naples troupes are presenting different versions. The Naples Players production (March 1-April 2) will have a full cast and orchestra at the Sugden Community Theatre, while Gulfshore Playhouse will stage a stripped-down version with 10 performers and two pianos at The Norris Center (Nov. 12-Dec. 11). Fans of the musical no doubt will want to see both productions, and students of the theater will be curious to see the two very different ways a show can be staged and conceptualized. The Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers is bringing back some favorite musicals Jersey Boys (March 29-April 2) and The Book of Mormon (Jan. 24-29) so if you missed them the first time around, or you want to see them again, you can. The Lincoln Center production of The King & I (April 26-30), the last show in the Broadway lineup at the Mann Hall for 2016-17, should be a highlight of the season. Those who saw the Lincoln Center production of South Pacific at the hall will remember the superb quality of the show, with a big orchestra, full cast and sets. If you missed Kinky Boots this season, or want to see it again, you can catch it at the Van Wezel in Sarasota. (April 25-30). Ditto for Dirty Dancing (Jan. 10-11). ArtisNaples promises to have a great year with hot, current Broadway shows. Of special note is A Gentlemans Guide to Love & Murder (Jan. 17-22), which won the 2014 Tony and Drama Desk awards for Best Musical and Best Book of a Musical. And Something Rotten! (March 14-19), nominated for nine Tonys, shouldnt be missed. The musical comedy, set in 1595, is about two brothers named Bottom who try to be successful in the theater while competing with Shakespeare. And we wont be surprised if the Tony-nominated jukebox musical Beautiful: The Carole King Musical (Feb. 7-12) sells out. TheatreZone in Naples will present some musicals about well-known men: George M. Cohan in George M! (Jan. 12-22), Mozart in Amadeus (Feb. 9-19) and the gangster Legs Diamond in Legs Diamond Lives Again. (April 27-May 7). Phantom (Dec. 29-Feb. 11) at the Broadway Palm in Fort Myers is a likely crowd-pleaser, but my moneys on White Christmas (Nov. 24-Dec. 25) and Mary Poppins (June 29-Aug. 12, 2017). And as if we dont have enough drama with the current presidential race, some theaters are presenting politically themed plays. At Laboratory Theater of Florida, The Best Man (Oct. 7-29), written by Gore Vidal, looks at two fictional candidates vying for their partys nomination. And the Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota is staging The Great Society (Jan. 13-April 2). The sequel to All the Way, which the company staged this spring, is about LBJs first year as president after the assassination of JFK, and his struggle to pass the Civil Rights Act. (If you didnt see the play, you might catch the HBO production of it later this month, reprising Bryan Cranstons Tony Award-winning performance as LBJ.) The Great Society deals with LBJs attempt to pass the most ambitious collection of social program bills since the Great Depression. Nick Wyman will return to the Asolo as LBJ in the sequel. The Venice Theatre presents Inherit the Wind (April 11-30), which fictionalizes the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial, as well as Frost/Nixon (Jan. 19-Feb. 11) about the famous interview President Nixon had with David Frost. Theyre also presenting the Pulitzer Prize and Tony award winning August Wilson play Fences (May 4-21). Theatre Conspiracy in Fort Myers offers another Tony award-winning August Wilson play, Ma Raineys Black Bottom (Feb. 24-March 11), and the world premiere of The Cave (March 24-April 8), a play by local author Jeffrey Lindsay, who wrote the Dexter novels upon which the TV series is based. In light of Harper Lees recent death, Florida Repertory Theatre will stage To Kill a Mockingbird (Feb. 14-March 8). And to add some levity to our lives, theres Erma Bombeck: At Wits End (Oct. 4-Nov. 6) and Shear Madness (Jan. 17-March 12), both in the companys ArtStage Studio Theatre. This is just a glimpse of the coming season for theater in Southwest Florida. For a more detailed look, heres a list of whats been announced to date.

He struck one and inspected the flame before letting it fall. Jesse called out, but her voice stayed stuck in her throat. The match, still burning, landed on the ground between her fathers feet. It caught on the dry leaves and began to lick at his boots. The fire crept upward, onto the legs of her fathers pants and the hem of his shirt. He didnt flinch. Without hurrying, Corbin walked to where Jesse stood. He scooped her up and tossed her over his shoulder the way a farm worker would carry a bag of seed cane. Jesse fought him, kicking and bucking, and as he carried her out of the field she twisted her body to look back at her father. He stood unmoving, lit up by a column of flames. In her struggle, Jesse saw her own hands, her own arms, and realized that she, too, was on fire. She held one burning hand in front of her face, the fingers spread wide. It doesnt hurt, she said to Corbin, mesmerized. Im on fire, and it doesnt hurt. Corbin looked at her over his shoulder. Itll hurt later, he said. Itll hurt more than anything you know. Jesse woke to the lumps in the couch and heat covering her like a blanket. Lida stood in the kitchen, cooking bacon. Get Corbin. Hes out in the truck, she said when Jesse stirred. Jesse walked on stiff legs to Corbins pickup. He slept in the drivers seat with his head lolled back. His hair was mussed, and a film of sweat slicked his face. The windows were rolled shut against the mosquitoes and flies, and Jesse wondered how he could breath. She imagined him suffocated, the oxygen in the cab used up with his sleeping breaths until the last of it pumped through his lungs and there was nothing left but poisoned air. Corbin twitched. He reached up to scratch his ear and the moment broke apart. Jesse rapped her knuckles against the windowpane, and Corbin opened his eyes. He jerked back as if she had scalded him. Damn it, Jesse, he said, his voice muffled through the glass. Lida said to come get you. For breakfast. Corbin wiped at his eyes and opened the door. Dont do that again.

Rock and rollers taking over The Ranch in Fort MyersRock and Roll Hall of Famer Robin Zander, lead singer of the band Cheap Trick, takes the stage at The Ranch in Fort Myers at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 14. The show, part of the Classic Rock Series presented by KDIM Entertainment, will also feature Las Vegas Queen of Rock Carol-Lyn Liddle. Mr. Zander and his Cheap Trick bandmates reached the pinnacle of rock stardom just weeks ago as they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Rocking their way through four decades, Cheap Trick sold more than 20 million albums and earned more than 40 gold and platinum album awards. Their latest, Bang, Zoom, Crazy Hello, debuted at No. 31 on the Billboard 200 earlier this month. It was the bands best-rated album debut in 28 years. Mr. Zander began playing in various high school bands in Illinois in the 1960s. In the early 0s he switched to folk music and did a residency for three summers at the Wisconsin Dells Picadilly Pub. Between stints, he played in groups featuring drummer Bun E. Carlos of Cheap Trick. By September 1974, Mr. Carlos convinced Mr. Zander to join the band and become the lead singer. The band recorded several albums before hitting it big with 1979s classic concert recording, Live at Budokan. In 1993 Mr. Zander recorded an album that included guest talent including Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood, Dave Stewart and Don Felder, among others. Ms. Liddle, the opening act for Mr. Zander on May 14 at The Ranch, has performed in nearly every major hotel/ casino in Sin City, hence her nickname of Las Vegas Queen of Rock. She has performed with Aerosmiths Jimmy Crespo, Bon Jovis Hugh McDonald, Hearts Howard Leese and Whitesnakes Doug Aldrich.

Just us girls. Thats the credo of a group of five friends who get together for a weekend every August at the same cottage on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The women first met when they were all on the same championship swim team in college. As disparate as five people thrown together by circumstance can be, they remain lifelong friends. In The Dixie Swim Club, we follow them from 1983 to the present. The women are definite types. Dinah (Ann Hoover) is a hard-drinking outspoken lawyer in Atlanta. Jerri Neal (Susan West) is a nun. Vernadette (Dolores Fetters) is perpetually going through difficult times, some of which involve her kids being on the wrong side of the law. Sheree (Genai Corban) is a combination of Martha Stewart and Susie Homemaker, with some Gen. Patton thrown in. And Lexie (Carol Fox) is a vain, frivolous woman addicted to plastic surgery and acquiring a new husband every few years, the way some people get a new Cadillac. Be forewarned: This might be a team of swimmers, but the water, for the most part, is pretty shallow. Thats not to say there arent some big splashes and some good laughs in this pool. There are. But they occur mostly in the beginning. The water has long stretches of being too placid at times, and way too many moments feel contrived. The playwrights Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, a collective known as Jones Hope Wooten have some terrific one-liners in this work. (Thats the trouble with husbands: They always swear they will die for you, but they never do.) The Dixie Swim Club is described in the program as combining the Southern charm of Steel Magnolias with the biting repartee of The Golden Girls. (Mr. Wooten himself was once a writer/producer on The Golden Girls. At times, I could practically hear Dorothy growl a line or Blanche purr a come-on.) But if this play was going for funny and shallow, I wish the jokes were more abundant. Id feel much more forgiving if I had laughed more as I sat through it at the Sugden Community Theatre. These women seem like types, not actual people. I cant help but wonder what the play would have been like if three women had written it or even just one woman. These women dont act like my friends or any group of women Ive been with; the conversations and interactions are completely different. The show is more like a TV sitcom being played on a big stage. And maybe thats fine for those enthralled with television; the audience I saw it with seemed to enjoy it immensely. But I found myself feeling restless at times. I expect more from theater, even when its light comedy. I find it strange that The Naples Players are staging this show. Over the years theyve developed a reputation for presenting quality fare, but this feels like a stereotypical community theater play. Director John McKerrow stages the women as if theyre performing for TV cameras: More than once, they all stand in a line downstage, facing the audience like a chorus line, even though theyre talking to each other. Or, one character moves downstage and gives a little monologue. Her back is to the other women, even though shes addressing them. At one point, one of the characters gives a defense of the old Southern way of life and a diatribe against change. To me, it seemed gratuitous and just dropped into the script, but the playwrights obviously know what buttons to push: The rant received applause the night I attended. Ms. Hoover and Ms. Fetters save this play from being a total snooze. Ms. Hoover received applause when she first walked on stage. I wasnt sure if it was for her arrival or her opening lines delivered in her deep, foghorn voice: Out of the way, girls! Ive got a martini shaker and Im not afraid to use it! Probably both. Im always glad to see Ms. Hoover on a stage, and this is no exception. She made me laugh, and she gave depth to her character. One scene, where she talks about her pearl necklace breaking during a trial, was particularly poignant. And Ms. Fetters, whose accident-prone character is subjected to crutches, neck braces and a leg brace throughout the show, has consistently pithy lines. (In one scene, she mentions how she talks about her family troubles with her mother. Now that shes in a coma, shes not nearly as judgmental, she says.) Over the course of the play, the women age from 44 to 77, which means those younger in real life play older at the end, and those more mature play younger in the beginning. I did hear some snickers from the audience in the first scene, when the women say theyre all 44. But it stands to reason that if you have a show where the characters age 33 years, at some point theyre either going to be younger or older than their character. And, this might be a minor thing, but I found the timeline given in the program confusing. It wasnt initially clear to me that the two scenes saying five years later meant five more years later. The set by Todd Potter is highly realistic, from the bleached wood floors to the cedar shingle exterior. It was as if The Naples Players magically transported a mid-Atlantic seaside cottage down to the subtropics. The sound, unfortunately, was not consistently clear. Some of the actors failed to project, and some lines were lost when they turned away from the audience. The playwrights throw some drama into the story, with mixed success. A Category 3 hurricane that threatens to come ashore doesnt seem all that scary. And the play takes a turn and becomes serious at the end, as the women, now in their late 70s, deal with death, aging and health issues. But if were moved, its because were thinking about those issues in our own lives, not because we actually care about these characters. Womens friendships are incredible, magical things, filled with uproarious laughter, affection, serious and silly conversations and support. The Dixie Swim Club, with its contrived situations and phony dialogue, is only a shadow of the real thing. But even though there arent enough of them, thank God for the laughs.

CONTRACT BRIDGESpectacular but reasonableBY STEVE BECKERCard reading that is, visualizing the opposing hands is perhaps the most important faculty required of a declarer. This is as it should be, because once the location of the unseen 26 cards is known, it is seldom difficult to achieve the best result possible. Take this case where South gets to four hearts on the bidding shown, and West leads a diamond. Declarer wins with the ace and plays the king of hearts, which East takes with the ace. East returns a diamond to the king, and South must now watch his step or he will go down. His proper play is to cross to dummy with a spade, lead a heart and finesse the nine. If he does, he makes the contract; if he doesnt, he fails. It is granted that the secondround heart finesse has all the earmarks of being based on a peek at the East-West hands. A more normal play would be to cash the queen of hearts on the assumption that the trumps are divided 3-2. But in this hand all signs point to a 4-1 trump division, and the finesse is therefore the indicated play. Lets see why. West passed originally and then, at unfavorable vulnerability, doubled one heart. At trick two, East showed up with the ace of hearts, leaving West with at most 11 high-card points for his double. West could scarcely double at this vulnerability with 11 aceless points unless he had either a singleton or a void in hearts and on this basis, declarer should assume that a trump finesse against the 10 is very likely to succeed.

SUMMER KITCHEN HOURS FILM CAPSULESGreen Room (Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Patrick Stewart) A terrible punk rock band is held captive by Skinheads and must figure out how to escape before theyre killed. You will not necessarily like the members of the band, but its a testament to writer/ director Jeremy Saulniers storytelling that you nonetheless root for them to survive. Patrick Stewart is especially chilling as the Skinhead leader. Rated R.The Huntsman: Winters War 1/2(Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt) With Evil Queen Ravenna (Ms.. Theron) dead, the Huntsman (Mr. Hemsworth) has to retrieve the magic mirror before Ravennas ice queen sister Freya (Ms. Blunt) gets her heartless cold hands on it. It often lacks logic and suspense, but the story is just smart enough in its broadest strokes to make this genuinely entertaining. Rated PG-13.The Jungle Book (Neel Sethi, Voices of Bill Murray, Idris Elba) Man-cub Mowgli (young Mr. Sethi) is raised by wolves in the jungle, but is forced to flee when a tiger (Ms. Elba) threatens to kill him. Its visually dazzling but the story is thin, and superfluous characters make the movie tedious rather than engaging. Rated PG.Demolition (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.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-thoughtout 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.Deadpool 1/2(Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller) Diagnosed with terminal cancer, bad boy and reluctant hero Wade Wilson (Mr. Reynolds) undergoes treatment that makes him a mutant (the story takes place in the X-Men universe). The problem is hes now deformed, seeking revenge and worried his girlfriend (Ms. Baccarin) will no longer want to be with him. Sex, violence, profanity, great action, great laughs its everything a superhero movie should always be and almost never is. Except now. Rated R.How To Be Single (Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Alison Brie) New York City singles find themselves among friends not romantic partners in this smart comedy. Ms. Wilson gets the biggest laughs with Leslie Mann coming in a close second, but best of all it allows people to be single and happy, which is a rarity in movies. Rated R.The Finest Hours (Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, Eric Bana) In the winter of 1952, f our men in the Coast Guard set sail near Cape Cod, Mass., to save the survivors of a shipwrecked oil tanker. Its a harrowing action drama with solid visual effects and action. Rated PG-13.45 Years 1/2(Charlotte Rampling, Tom Courtenay, Geraldine James) In the week leading up to their 45th anniversary party, Geoff (Mr. Courtenay) and Kate (Ms. Rampling) discover surprising news from Geoffs past that shakes the foundation of their marriage. The story feels honest and realistic, and Ms. Rampling deserves her Oscar nomination note how she emotes with her body and face, not just her words. Rated R.Kung Fu Panda 3 1/2(Voices of Jack Black, J.K. Simmons, Angelina Jolie) With the villain Kai (Mr. Simmons) stealing the Chi of kung fu masters everywhere, its up to Po (Mr. Black) to save the day. Its a by-the-numbers sequel thats silly and fun enough to keep kids entertained for 95 minutes. Rated PG.

Celebrate Mots Dab on the Water FILM REVIEWCaptain America: Civil WarIs it worth $10? YesWhats remarkable about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, now in its 13th incarnation with Captain America: Civil War, is how the scale of the projects and sheer number of characters never seem too big. Sure this is its longest movie yet at 147 minutes, but Civil War doesnt slight anyone, is good for a few laughs and great action scenes and it progresses the MCUs overarching story forward in smart and logical ways. Im not sure anything more could be expected of the $200 million-plus production. As youve probably seen from the onslaught of Civil War publicity, the movie pits Captain America (Chris Evans) versus Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). The reason theyre fighting is a good one: Citing the mass destruction of New York City, Washington D.C., Sokovia (the fictional city ruined in the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron) and, at the start of this film, Lagos, Nigeria, Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) informs the Avengers that the governments of the world want supervision over the superheroes. Captain America doesnt want to answer to anyone, and gets Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and later, Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), to agree with him. Iron Man thinks someone keeping them in check is a good idea, and has Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), War Machine (Don Cheadle), Vision (Paul Bettany), newcomer Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and later, Spider-Man (Tom Holland) in his corner. So the teams are chosen, the battle lines are drawn. And when the two sides duke it out on an airport tarmac, its one of the best, most enjoyable and surprising action sequences Marvel Studios has ever put on film. Moments like this are why we go to these movies, and when theyre done this well we enjoy a special sense of exhilaration thats far more profound than normal. Brothers Anthony and Joe Russo directed the film and, just as they did when directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), they once again provide a thought-provoking dilemma. Whereas Winter Soldier dealt with how far government surveillance should go, Civil War debates whether the Avengers should operate freely or only with permission. Given how corrupt government organizations can be, its understandable that Captain America would refuse to trust anything other than his own virtuous instincts. But as Iron Man points out, far too much damage has been suffered and things have gone wrong too easily for the Avengers to continue as they are. Both sides have valid points; and more importantly, however, the debate engages the viewer intellectually, which is something movies of this ilk rarely do successfully. Complicating matters is Caps relationship with Winter Soldier, whos framed for a bombing by former Sokovian intelligence agent Helmut Zemo (Daniel Bruhl). Zemos motivations run deeper than just the Winter Soldier, and as they manifest, the plot juicily thickens. Spider-Man and Black Panther make their debuts in the MCU here, and Ant-Man appears for the first time in an ensemble piece. Panther has the larger role, but Spidey and Ant-Man, thanks to Mr. Holland and Mr. Rudd, nearly steal the movie with their humor and creative fighting talents. It was such a smart move to bring all three characters in: We know how the other Avengers fight, so the twists and turns provided by fresh faces work wonderfully to keep the action dynamic and exciting. With new characters (Doctor Strange) and sequels (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok) on the horizon, it appears the next time we see the Avengers in full could be two years from now in Avengers: Infinity War Part One. Thats okay. Its time to let others do some heavy lifting for a while, and Captain America: Civil War delivers enough to keep us satisfied for a long time. t e d S a dan >> Watch for a mid-credits sequence that wraps up a major characters storyline, and an end-credits scene with Spider-Man.

Oh, its Limoges, she said in a reverential tone. After, all nothing but the finest porcelain came from this French factory, right? Well, not quite. Limoges actually is the name of a city thats a couple hundred miles south of Paris. And, yes, Limoges is known as a European epicenter for porcelain manufacturing by companies that include Haviland and Guerin. But its not a factory in and of itself. Before Walter Scott Lenox opened his factory in New Jersey around the turn of the last century, U.S. presidential administrations ordered china made in Limoges to use at the White House. Mary Todd Lincoln ordered a service of Haviland in 1861; pieces from that set remain in the White House collection, and they are beautifully detailed. In automotive terms, thats Cadillac quality. There are stunningly beautiful pieces of china made in Limoges by Haviland and others. But as with anything, from automobile makers to manufacturers of fine china, quality can vary. A century ago, many a grandmother prided herself on her service of Haviland china, not realizing that the floral motif of her Sunday dinnerware was a decal-transferred design, and not hand-painted not unlike the set I saw in the shop. Those would be the Chevrolets of the porcelain world solid and dependable, but made in huge quantity. Thats what most people own even the Limoges trinket boxes you see seemingly everywhere vary in quality. So now you know.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C17 KOVELS: ANTIQUESPass the cruet set, please BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELCruet sets, especially those made of sterling silver with attractive glass bottles, have been popular with collectors and those who like to use them at parties. The stand for a set usually is a silver pedestal that supports a revolving tray with holes or holders for three to seven bottles or containers. It has a tall handle so it can be easily passed at the table. The sets held an assortment of condiments used on salads perhaps oil, vinegars, salt, pepper and dry or wet mustard. A unique cruet set made by Tiffany & Co. was offered for sale by S.J. Shrubsole, a New York shop, at the 2016 Winter Antiques show in New York. The stand was made to look like a circular railroad track with seven railroad cars that rotated around the handle. The engraving simulated wooden siding and had the initials H, NH, & S, 69, which most likely stood for New Haven, Hartford & Springfield Railroad. A stamped makers mark on the bottom dates it about 1853. The 14-inch-high piece was priced $37,500. Q: I have a copper shell casing dated 1918-19 with the name Verdun and an eagle standing on a shield with a star on it. The words Nevers France are engraved underneath. Can you give me any idea what something like this is worth? A: You have a piece of trench, a form of folk art for which soldiers in World War I cut and decorated metal casings from bullets and mortar shells to form useful objects or souvenirs. The Battle of Verdun was one of the longest battles in the war, raging from February to December 1916. There was a large military population at camps and hospitals in the area around Nevers. Your copper shell might have been made to commemorate the battle and the time spent in Nevers recovering from wounds sustained. Or, a soldier stationed at Nevers from 1918-19 might have made this from a shell casing found at Verdun. Trench art is popular. Your casing is worth about $200. Q: I am looking for some information on a Westmoreland milk glass 8-inch plate that is heart-shaped. Its handpainted with the Roses and Bows pattern. A: Westmoreland Glass Co. of Grapeville, Pa., made glass from 1889-1984. Roses and Bows, which the company called decoration No. 32, was one of Westmorelands most popular decorations. It was made from the 1950s until 1984, usually with two roses. A bowl like yours sells for $20-$30. Tip: Reverse-painted lamps should never be washed. Just dust them. Current prices: Beatles doll, Ringo Starr, hard plastic, rubber head, drum, 1964, 4 inches, $75. Beswick pottery figurine, Beatrix Potter, Miss Moppet, 1960s, 3 inches, $100.

Best Family F Best of the Gulf s CELEBRITY EXTRANew Kids ship sets sail in June BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: I remember a while back I saw a reality show where New Kids on the Block were on a cruise ship with a bunch of fans. Will that be back for another season? Geena F., via emailA: The members of NKOTB will indeed be setting sail once again with their fans with the premiere of the second season of Rock This Boat: New Kids on the Block at 8 p.m. Thursday, June 9, on Pop TV (a basic-cable and satellite-TV network thats a joint venture between CBS and Lionsgate). This season of the music reality series brings fans intimate access to all five members of the band Danny Wood, Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre, Jonathan Knight and Jordan Knight as they engage with each other and rock out with their fans, both onand offstage, in 10 new episodes. It will also feature pre-cruise video shot in each of their homes, exclusive access to rehearsals for deck parties and concerts, and revealing looks inside their cruise-ship cabins. Q: I am hooked on Quantico. Please tell me it will be back for another season. Eric P., Lancaster, Pa.A : Quantico has been a breakout hit for ABC and for series star Priyanka Chopra, so you can bet itll be back for a second season. In fact, it was one of 15 ABC shows that got an early-renewal announcement. Here are the others: Greys Anatomy, Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Once Upon a Time, Modern Family, The Goldbergs, black-ish, Fresh Off the Boat, The Middle, Americas Funniest Home Videos, The Bachelor, Dancing With the Stars and Shark Tank. If you dont see your favorite show on this list, it doesnt mean its been canceled; it just means the network has not come to a definite decision as of this writing. (Although we can pretty much assume Blood and Oil and Wicked City are dead in the water.) Q: Do you know whether Tyrant, Graceland and Hell on Wheels are returning, and if so, when? Seems like our favorites keep being canceled. I hope thats not so for these three. Barb B., via emailA: I have good news on two out of the three. First, the bad news: USA network canceled Graceland back in October, so that series is no more. However, there is better news on the way. Hell on Wheels still has the back-seven episodes of its fifth and final season yet to air, which will most likely be sometime this summer, although AMC has yet to announce a date. Also, FXs Tyrant has been renewed for a third season, which will premiere this summer.

I think it is time that we do that, he said. Its going to be good for our life and our continued musical development, to do it just because its a worthy exercise. Were getting much closer to that this year, and theres time carved out for us to actually be in the studio. So I would say well stop talking about it and actually do it pretty soon. Gowan also senses there may be increased demand for a new album coming from younger fans that have discovered Styx in recent years and would welcome new music. We have such a large audience of people who werent around when the biggest records were made, he said. Thats a little bit of an incentive right there. They obviously, they want to hear more classic rock. There are only a dozen bands or so from that era that are still standing. So who better to make that than those bands? He noted that when he joined Styx in 1999 to replace Dennis DeYoung (singer/ keyboardist and composer of many of the bands biggest hits), the bands audience was mostly made up of fans that had been following Styx since the 1970s. Thats when the Chicago-based band made its commercial breakthrough with its seventh studio album, 1977s The Grand Illusion. Like that signature album, Styxs next three studio albums Pieces of Eight (1978), Cornerstone (1979) and Paradise Theatre (1981), also topped 2 million copies sold and filled radio with hits like Come Sail Away, The Best of Times, Blue Collar Man, Babe and Too Much Time on My Hands, making Styx one of the most popular bands of the era. Today, though, about half of the typical Styx concert audience is under 30 in other words, not even born when the band was enjoying its peak success. Gowan thinks Styxs ability to deliver an exciting live show that doesnt rely on samples, triggers and other pre-recorded tracks may have something to do with its drawing power as a live act. He also thinks that even though most of the songs in the show are the same from year to year and its still the sme players on stage Gowan, guitarist/singer and founding member James Young, guitarist/singer Tommy Shaw, drummer Todd Sucherman and bassist Ricky Phillips the show experience is different for fans every time. (Original bassist Chuck Panozzo also occasionally performs with the band.) The songs are still relevant, he said. They they take on a nuance and meaning this year that they may not have had last year. There are ways that the show elevates from year to year. And its not like we sit down with a drafting board and figure out how do we make Come Sail Away be more 2016 than it was in 2011. Its not like that happens. What really takes place is that continuing to tour on this level, when youre playing 100 shows (or more) a year, there are tiny degrees of, Id say improvement, but also recalibration that will continually go on. The evolution of the live show is one reason why Styx continues to release live DVD/CDs. The most recent such release, Live at the Orleans Arena Las Vegas, came out in 2015 and is being re-released this year with interview and behind-thescenes footage of the band and its crew that gives viewers a look at what life is like on tour and what it takes to bring the Styx show to the concert stage. Live at the Orleans Arena was the groups seventh live release in the past 15 years alone, and Gowan sees value in each of the concert albums/DVDs. We can see the growth in the show, he said. So although many of the same songs are in there and its essentially the same players, you can see the span of time. Its almost like keeping a photo journal, a really in-depth (document) of what weve done over the past couple of years and how things have changed.

If youve been around these parts awhile, youll hear the distinctive tune in your head and remember just how long The Dock at Crayton Cove has been here, too. Set for release Thursday, May 5, the restaurants cookbook, The Dock at Crayton Dove: Everybodys Kitchen, commemorates 40 years of service. Recipes throughout are accompanied by memories and photos collected by Debby DePasquale, wife to restaurant owner Vin DePasquale. Were incredibly excited to share the story of how the Dock started and what led us to the point we are today, Ms. DePasquale says. I am not an author, but people seem to be so captivated by Vins stories of how both the Dock at Crayton Cove and Riverwalk restaurants began, so I thought I should document the history. The book, which costs $20, is available at both restaurants and at Barnes & Noble in Waterside Shops. Copies will also be sold at the 40th and Final Great Dock Canoe Race coming up Saturday, May 14. Proceeds from all sales will benefit the David Christian DePasquale 2 Memorial Scholarship Fund at The Culinary Institute of America in honor of Mr. DePasquales late son.

By that point, I had worked up an appetite no dinky little doughnut would satisfy, so I ordered a slice of decadent chocolate cream pie from the display case. Upon further inspection at the table, hot jasmine tea at the ready, I saw that my late breakfast consisted of chocolate mousse on a dark cookie crust, all dressed in a layer of whipped cream and topped with chocolate ganache. It was just what my nutritionist ordered, and thankfully I was able to fill that entry in my food journal. One More Thing: The Bavarian cream cronut looks good too. Next time!

Check out this welcoming dinerstyle establishment where the friendly service staff delivers large steaming platters of well-prepared down-home food. Breakfast is a big deal here and a meal we found satisfying, as did the rest of the capacity crowd on a Sunday morning. While you can order a fruit plate with cottage cheese or a virtuous bowl of oatmeal, thats not what most customers are after. Blueberry pancakes were a good choice, although Id recommend syrup in lieu of the runny blueberry compote served with them. A Santa Fe omelet had a tasty blend of cilantro, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos and Jack cheese within and a touch of salsa on the side. Choose toast or pancakes plus potatoes, grits, sliced tomatoes or fruit to go with your eggs. I liked the plain buttermilk pancake and, once sufficientl y butte red and s alted, the grits. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2014 Coastal Peruvian Seafood & Grill, 5477 Airport-Pulling Road N., Naples; 631-6943 This lovely restaurant provides a refreshing space in which to dine on exceptionally good food. Owners Chris and Fabiola Santos are hospitable and helpful as they introduce gusts to their menu. Of the various ceviche variations, we enjoyed the Ceviche 200 Miles, a sprightly blend of shrimp, squid, mussels, fish, red onions, sweet potato and corn that had a bite but wasnt fiery hot. Marina sliders held fried red snapper fillets topped with aji amarillo-pineapple chimichurri on firm, yeasty mini-buns. The Poseidon Fest was a montage of seafood cooked in the restaurants Josper oven, which renders proteins crisp outside, juicy within. And the Savage Tacu Tacu was a great rendition of rice and lentil pancakes with a tender skirt steak and sweet plantains. For dessert: the chocolucuma, a pie with an Oreo crumb crust, middle of caramel-flavored lucuma and a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2016 Patrics, 2091 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 596-7708 Long-time area chef Patric Achilles and husband, Gary Teater, are back with a new little breakfast and lunch joint named, not surprisingly, Patrics. The owners are as friendly and charming as ever. While the cafe is relatively petite, the menu is not. There are loads of breakfast and lunch items, including paleo options (proteins, veggies, fruits, roots and nuts), of which the chef is a devotee. Want gluten free? Theyve got that, too. For those have no such dietary limitations, try the Brie-stuffed French toast with peaches for a decadent, satisfying start to the day. The pot roast skillet was a hearty blend of home fries, pot roast, gravy, onions, eggs, cheddar cheese and a fresh biscuit. Even if youre full, take home some homemade chocolate-chocolate chip cookies for later. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2014 Tarpon Bay, Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa, 5001 Coconut Road, Bonita Springs; 444-1234 One feature that sets Tarpon Bay apart is its ceviche bar, which serves up eight variations in flights. Our favorite paired rough-chopped scallops with thinly sliced celery and radishes with laced lemony oil; fennel pollen added a lovely hint of anise to complement the sweet shellfish and peppery radishes. Eight a la carte fish varieties are offered with choice of eight sauces; a wahoo steak with corn and pepper emulsion was perfectly moist and flaky and the sauce added a smoky sweetness that enhanced the mild fish. Sides are $4 extra, whether you choose mascarpone and sweet corn risotto or house fries; the blackened kale had no kick. From the signature dishes, the Tarpon seafood linguini was a highlight, loaded with chunks of moist grouper, small clams, several large shrimp and lots of bay scallops. Full bar.

Owners Axelle and Jean Bechu have transformed the space with soothing tones of silver-gray and white. A millefeuille (a thousand leaves) of smoked salmon and apples was a gorgeous and delicious dish of whisperthin slices of Granny Smith apples alternating with rich smoked salmon. A vol au vent of the sea held bits of chopped seafood in cream sauce beneath a tender puff pastry. The coq au vin was a classic rendition served in its own little pot. And scallops in grapefruit butter were exceptionally good, the scallops perfectly cooked then touched with butter and bits of pink grapefruit served with splendid roasted tomatoes. A warm apple tart with vanilla ice cream and slivered almonds was a perfect finish to the meal. Beer and wine served.

CUISINEMediterranos appeal goes far beyond its fresh, well-executed foodOne of the joys of traveling in places like Greece, Italy and other countries that border the Mediterranean Sea is the hospitality of the people, who greet strangers like long-lost friends. Its not unusual to be invited to sit for a drink or even a meal with someone you met just minutes before. That is the way in which you are likely to be welcomed to Mediterrano, a relative newcomer along 13th Avenue in Naples. At the hostess stand in front of the spacious patio, the man who greeted us extended his hand and introduced himself. Im Milos, he said with a warm smile. As in Milos Ljubenovic, the owner of Mediterrano, which opened in the winter of 2015 across from Le Lafayette. He was just about everywhere throughout our dinner: refilling water glasses, checking tables, welcoming customers old and new, making sure diners were pleased with their meals. Id be surprised if he heard anything but praise. Choose from al fresco or air-conditioned dining. The spacious patio out front has big aquamarine umbrellas and overlooks the fashionable avenue. Indoors, the room is awash in aquamarine, reminiscent of the Mediterranean waters as they lap gently against the shore of a Greek island. The walls, candles, napkins, bud vases, even the servers shirts are this sun-kissed hue. Combined with the light coming through the floor-to-ceiling wall of glass in the front, the room is bright and cheerful. The effect is lovely without being fussy. Service is delivered in much the same way. Although it was a Saturday evening, we were given our choice of seats, a most unusual practice even when you have reservations (which we did). Many restaurants seat parties of two in the smallest possible space, but the staff encouraged us to choose whatever table we liked. We selected a roomy one indoors and were immediately greeted by our server who filled our water glasses from a lovely aqua bottle. The wine list is extensive twice as many pages as the menu with a generous number of by-the-glass options as well as multiple types of sangria. I tried a glass of mojito sangria ($9.95), a refreshing blend of white wine, mint, lime and a hint of fruit juice. As we perused the menu, a basket of warm pita triangles arrived along with a trio of toppings: balsamic reduction, sundried tomato butter and olive oil. All were excellent and it proved difficult to limit ourselves to one or two or even three slices. The menu is wide-ranging and imaginative, with a few dishes you might expect and quite a few that will surprise and delight. Sure, theres a Greek salad and a Caesar. Garbanzo soup and hummus. There are the obligatory kebobs, too, although the chicken version comes with Israeli pumpkin couscous. A filet is topped with Gorgonzola and toasted walnuts then served with crimini mushrooms and black currant espagnole. Paella devotees will be happy to know that there are two versions available here: the traditional Spanish seafood style and a chicken-based version, which are served for two. Theres grilled octopus or sauted calamari withy baby spinach, preserve lemon, whole roasted garlic cloves, heirloom tomatoes and smoked paprika oil ($18). We chose the octopus, which was tender and slightly smoky in flavor, which allowed it to hold its own against the other bold flavors of this dish. Lamb keftedes and falafel ($16) is an appetizer but was hearty enough to serve as an entre. Four large lamb meatballs dipped in rosemary mint glace surrounded a falafel patty. They were served with sundried tomato tzatziki, which complemented both items well. While a lamb shank special sounded appealing, it was the seafood that won out. Mediterranos cioppino ($36) is a bountiful and soul-satisfying mlange of delicate sea bass, mussels, shrimp and clams in a sauce that is essentially roasted Roma tomatoes seasoned with Mediterranean spices and cilantro. It is served with a toasted slice of Italian bread for scooping up the fragrant tomato sauce. All of the seafood was perfectly cooked and the sauce perfectly seasoned. My companions Mediterranean sea bass ($36) arrived in a bamboo steamer basket. When the server removed the top, the heady fragrance of Moroccan spices was almost worth the price of the dish alone. It tasted even better than it smelled. The fish had been lightly steamed so that it was still flaky. In addition to the spice blend, it had a bit of lavender, golden raisins, a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds and sides of grilled fennel, carrots, asparagus and zucchini. Served over red lentil risotto, it was a superb dish, consisting of a wondrous mix of tastes and textures. We shared a limoncello parfait ($9) for dessert. It was a petite but potent icy lemon and vanilla confection and a refreshing ending to the meal. Mr. Ljubenovic stopped by our table twice to see how our meal was progressing, just as he did at virtually every table we could see. Should you feel the desire to go someplace warm and welcoming with food thats as appealing as the atmosphere, I can heartily recommend Mediterrano. Make sure you introduce yourself when you get there. KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYPita bread and a trio of toppings are the first items to arrive at the table at Mediterrano.

Kalea Bays community amenities popular with buyers Clubhouse area under constructionIf the clubhouse is the social and recreational centerpiece of a community then this fabulous amenity of Kalea Bay will surely be one of the busiest places in the gated, luxury residential high-rise community currently being developed on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. There are several reasons why buyers have decided to purchase at Kalea Bay, said Inga Wilson, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. The first is the beautifully designed three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half-bath and fourbedroom/four-bath tower residences with Gulf views. The other is our spectacular community clubhouse. Not only will it be a dramatic site as residents and visitors drive into the community, but it will also be the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays 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 Wilson. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants 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 phenomenal meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. 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. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity many of our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Wilson. 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. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. Three of the best beaches in the country are only minutes away from Kalea Bay, stated Wilson. Naples-based CID Design Group will be responsible for the interior design of the clubhouse, guest cottages and towers, and will assit with the design direction and planning of the outdoor amenities and landscape areas. According to the Jenn Zella, Principal and Director of Design for the firm, the interior design for Kalea Bay will complement the communitys modern seaside, villa-style architecture, accented with the charm of old Florida. 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. The 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. At the current time construction crews are working on the towers 14th floor, which is helping buyers see the value of purchasing now. As of early May, our total sales volume surpassed the $130 million mark, stated Wilson. 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/fourbath plans with 3,921 total square feet. Wilson said dramatic views are available to every single resident, no 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. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at Above: Kalea Bays first tower was designed with rooftop amenities, including a sky lounge, spectacular pool and open-air fitness center. The 22-story tower at Kalea Bay will have 120 residences. One of the three pools at the Kalea Bay clubhouse (on right) is for adults only.

Many best of publications are filled solely with content thats bought and paid for; thats not our style at Florida Weekly. Yes, our advertisers the folks who make this piece of Floridian pulp and history you hold in your hands possible receive shoutouts from us in these pages. Its only fair. But the bulk of our Best section has nothing to do with invoices or ballot-box stuffing. The nonscientific, non-crowdsourced process by which we choose our Best winners begins with a brainstorming meeting of our writers and editors. A couple of months later, after scouring the nooks and crannies of the region and our Florida Weekly archives, this section emerges: page after page of things we praise and applaud, pontificate on and poke fun at.

Going out to eat without a reservation, for example. Or heading to the beach without first having to figure out where well park, or to the movies on Friday night hoping well find a seat.

PAGE 90 FLORIDA WEEKLY6 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 BEST BIKER DUDESGentlemen for the ShelterNaples official spokes-men against domestic violence cycled 1,200 miles from their starting point at 7th Avenue Social to Washington, D.C., over the course of 12 days in April. Gordon Kellam, Colin Estrem and Glen Schwesinger all are members of Gentlemen Against Domestic Violence, an initiative of The Shelter for Abused Women & Children that calls on men to stand as equal partners with women to end domestic violence. Statistics show domestic violence accounts for nearly 30 percent of all violent crime committed in Collier County. The Gentlemen program targets young men and boys in local public schools with a succinct message: Violence does not equal strength, and true gentlemen exhibit respect, loyalty, honesty and accountability toward women. As they cycled their way toward D.C., Mr. Kellam, Mr. Estrem and Mr. Schwesinger stopped in several cities to meet with politicians, local shelter workers and others who share their goal to end domestic violence. BEST FILM FESTIVAL DEBUTThe Bonita Springs International Film FestivalThe first-ever Bonita Springs International Film Festival sure lived up to its name. Countries of origin for the event held at the Centers for the Arts included Cuba, France, United Arab Emirates, Britain, Canada, Argentina, Turkey, Finland and Sweden.

PAGE 92 FLORIDA WEEKLY8 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 BEST ACTOR WITH NO LINESRandall Kenneth Jones in Young FrankensteinIf only hed been born earlier, Randall Kenneth Jones couldve been a killer silent film star. His role as Frankensteins monster in The Naples Players spring production of Young Frankenstein was a mostly quiet performance, except for a few grunts, moans and groans. (Of course, after his brain transfer at the very end, he became the equivalent of a Shakespearean scholar!) But for most of the musical, he had to express himself with his face and eyes and physical movements just like an old-time silent film star. And he did so perfectly on cue, indeed, manifesting the feelings of a confused and alienated monster with humor and pathos to the delight of the audience.BEST TLCHolocaust boxcar renovationsStudents in the construction technologies program at iTech Immokalee Technical College put their skills to work renovating the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Floridas 97-year-old railway boxcar and strengthening its structural integrity so it can continue in use as a traveling educational tool. During the eight years its been on loan to the museum from Jack and F.E. Nortman and the Nortman Family, the WWII-era boxcar has traveled to more than 90 locations in the six-county area of Southwest Florida. Manufactured in Germany in 1919, the boxcar was in use during the time of WWII, although the museum does not know with certainty in what capacity. It is known, however, that it is the type of boxcar used to transport millions of people from countries all across Europe to the Nazi-controlled concentration camps. Under the direction of iTech instructor Dan Kroeker, the iTech students replaced the boxcars badly deteriorating walls, the floor and both doors with specially treated wood, ensuring the continuation of its important educational travels.BEST BITE OF THE BIG APPLESouthwest Florida chefs in NYCSeveral Southwest Florida chefs produced a spectacular Gulf Coast dinner for a sold-out crowd at the James Beard Foundation last fall. Led by chocolatier and pastry chef Norman Love, the team included Fabrizio Aielli of Sea Salt, Todd Johnson of Rumrunners, Harold Balink of Harolds and George Fistrovich of The Ritz-Carlton, Naples.BEST MARRYING KINDSarah PalinWhat does the former governor of Alaska and one-time Republican vice-presidential candidate say when a childhood friend asks her to officiate her wedding? You betcha! Thats how Sarah Palin came to pronounce them husband and wife when Kristan Sapp Cole, who grew up in the great North to the Future state, married Southwest Florida real estate broker Denny Grimes in January. As the groom told his hometown newspaper, The News-Press, about the ceremony in Wasilla: We say tongue-in-cheek it was a shotgun wedding.BEST DOCTOR WITHOUT BORDERS OR MORALSWalter Palmer The part-time Marco Island resident made international news when he killed Cecil, a beloved lion and major attraction at Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. A dentist and big game hunter, Dr. Palmer claimed he had a permit to hunt the lion (a breed on the endangered species list), which he skinned and beheaded (after removing the lions tracking collar, we assume). His actions put him at the top of the Internets most-hated list last summer and he went into hiding until the media frenzy died down. Meanwhile, vandals spray-painted the garage door of his winter home with the words Lion Killer.

PAGE 94 FLORIDA WEEKLY10 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 BEST BOWLS FOR THE BUCKSEmpty Bowls for the Harry Chapin Food Bank Every January (Saturday the 28th in 2017), Cambier Park fills up to the brim with throngs of people hungry for a lunchtime bowl of soup and a hunk of bread. For a small donation, the lucky ones get to pick out a handmade pottery bowl (while the supply lasts) to sup from and to take home as a reminder of the Empty Bowls lunch that benefits the Harry Chapin Food Bank. As soon as the event is over, work begins anew on throwing and glazing what organizers hope will be enough bowls for the next years crowd. Close to 1,000 bowls already have been made for 2017. The effort involves volunteer potters (Judi Nicholson, Rinny Ryan, Sara Wilson, John Moon) and instructors (Clay More Studio), hundreds of students (Golden Gate, Lely, Barron Collier, Gulf Coast and Naples high schools) and even entire civic clubs (Pelican Bay Rotary Club) and arts organizations (Naples Artcrafters) in the weeks and months leading up to the actual lunch. When its time to chow down, dozens of local restaurants donate soup for another Empty Bowls event.BEST EXTRAVAGANT SIPCognac at The RitzWhen you are dining in The Grill Room, The RitzCarlton-Naples Beach Resorts oh-so-upscale restaurant, the odds are that price is not a concern. So after a world-class meal, why not indulge in a worldrenowned cognac? The Ritz offers 2-ounce pours of legendary Remy Martin Louis XIII cognac, made from grapes from the Grande Champagne region of France since 1874. The price? A mere $275.BEST PLACE TO SWIRL, SNIFF AND SIP (TIE)The Naples Winter Wine Festival The Southwest Florida Wine & Food FestivalIts amazing to consider that two of the top 10 charity wine events in America are right here in Southwest Florida. At the Naples event every January, winemakers and chefs from all over the world converge to serve at the pleasure of festival guests. Rare wines flow freely, getting everyone in the mood for the grand auction. This year, a Rolls-Royce customized especially for NWWF brought $750,000, helping bring the 2016 total raised to more than $11 million. The same thing, on a somewhat different scale, happens at the Lee County event. This year, NWWF was Americas top charity wine auction, and the Southwest Florida event in Fort Myers came in at No. 4. Not too shabby. Best part is, all the money raised at both to-dos goes to support ill or at-risk kids. Do we need a better reason to enjoy wine?

Piece by piece, Marriott International has added luxury amenities including a spa (beautiful), 36-hole golf course and an exterior facelift that included new balconies and windows. The final phase, which focuses on the southern wing of the resort, will transform the property into a JW Marriott Resort and make it one of the few top-tier hotels to carry the name when the finished product debuts early next year.BEST PLACE NOT TO BE NOTICED IN A LAMBORGHINIFifth Avenue SouthIts barely a mile from the curve of Tamiami Trail to the beach at the end of Fifth Avenue in Naples, but this place is packed with more precious metal than a gold strike. So while your ultra-exotic Lamborghini will get you noticed at the outlet mall, shopping here means youre getting behind one just like yours at the valet stand. We were going to mention that Worth Avenue in Palm Beach ties with its west coast counterpart in not acknowledging an exotic car but over there, they really do see your bull-nosed vulgar sports car driving by. They just chose to ignore it and call in your plates for violating some sort of noise/paint/ nouveau-riche code after you pull away. 2 2 2 2 2 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 5 5 5 5 BIGGER. BOLDER. BRIGHTER.

PAGE 98 FLORIDA WEEKLY14 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 BEST VINE THATS NOT ON SOCIAL MEDIAThe Naples Botanical Garden jade vineOf all the showy foliage that ornaments Naples Botanical Garden, none can quite elicit the otherworldly appeal of its massive jade vine, a showstopping climber from the Philippines. With luminous blue-green blossoms, the plant produces flashier displays each year alongside neighboring purple queens wreath, resulting in a tableaux thats reminiscent of the film Avatar.BEST PLACE TO CATCH A FALLING STARBig Cypress National PreserveIf you need a little more awe in your life, trek out to Big Cypress National Preserve for one of its darknight star parties (December-March). Contemplate your place in the universe while spying star clusters, planets, nebulae, galaxies and other celestial formations sparkling on one of the darkest night skies on the eastern U.S. coast. Fancy telescopes and knowledgeable experts provided for free.BEST RESTAURANT REINVENTIONZen Asian BBQWhat was once a great little Mexican joint (Cilantro Tamales) and then a mediocre shrimp shack has been transformed into a bastion of Asian delights. Zen Asian BBQ is a rustic Japanese pub with Korean barbecue you can cook yourself on a grill at your table. Theres also sushi, soul-soothing ramen, green tea crme brulee and a host of other inventive fare served in a place thats open for lunch, dinner and late-night dining.

FLORIDA WEEKLY16 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 BEST HOOTERSBurrowing owlsThose eyes! That face! Marco Island residents are nuts for the sociable and charismatic birds that top out at 9 inches tall, often live in active family groups and love the flat, empty residential lots that are scattered around the island. If Marco were to have a mascot, the pocket-sized burrowing owls would be it. BEST AIRPORT SIGHTING John BoehnerIt was a rough road for former Speaker of the House John Boehner, who stepped out of politics amid high-stakes debates with President Obama that seemed to go, mostly, nowhere, while his own party feuded. But this winter Mr. Boehner left the tensions of Washington for his home on laid-back Marco Island. A friend of Florida Weekly ran into Mr. Boehner at the Dallas/Fort Worth airport, where he was traveling alone and eating a sandwich during a layover on his way to RSW. What was it like, our friend asked him, when it was just you and the president, alone in a room, negotiating? It wasnt just the two of them, Mr. Boehner joked, there was also Mr. Obamas ego in the room with them. He also said he had no hard feelings about political nemesis Harry Reid at least once Mr. Reid learned how to pronounce his last name.BEST TAKEOFFTed SolidayAfter 22 years in charge at the Naples Municipal Airport, Ted Soliday, a former U.S. Marine Corps aviator and a decorated Vietnam veteran, was cleared for final takeoff in April. A grateful community wished him clear skies ahead, sending him into retirement with one more award the Leadership Collier Foundation Alumni Association Distinguished Alumni Award for 2015-16 to add to the many local and national accolades he had acquired as a top-flight professional and civic leader over the years. We assume hes on Cloud Nine. BEST CHEAP DATEHappy hour at MasaOccasionally, a good time with your beloved requires something light on the wallet. Masa, which is well-known for its fancy Mexican food and hip decor, goes casual during happy hour with $5 select margaritas (go for the Margarita de Diabolita with habanero-infused white tequila, Licor 43, ginger, blood orange and pomegranate juice) and $6 menu items such as two tacos, pork skewer al pastor-style, chicken quesadilla, ceviche and churros. It all adds up to a happy time in Mercato from 3-6 p.m. daily and also from 11 p.m. to closing on Friday and Saturday.

They survived the Great Depression and many then left home to fight Fascism around the world, helping bring down Nazis in Europe and an imperial Japan in the Pacific. World War II ended 71 years ago. So a man who was a 19-year-old private in 1945 is now 90. If hes still alive. Were losing more every day. They should never be forgotten.BEST WAY TO TREAT A VETERANShulas and T.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 THE BEST 21 BEST FLORIDA CONVERTIBLEFord MustangIts hard not to get excited about a Ford Mustang convertible. Even the guy at the Avis counter knows it, and thats why he can charge tourists as much as their hotel room at Disney World to get this drop-top upgrade. But those of us who live here do it a little differently. The Mustang is an American icon, and so we fly our flag boldly with wild paint colors, big rumbling motors and custom license plates (is WLD PNY taken yet?) Keeping our pony cars distinctive is more than just individual expression; it is also a matter of highway survival. This way we instantly identify if were behind a ragtop Mustang thats out sightseeing, or if this driver really knows the Florida way to dominate the roadway. BEST PLACE TO MONKEY AROUNDThe Naples ZooPrimate boat excursions at The Naples Zoo are practically a rite of passage for Neapolitan youngsters. When you have curious little ones in tow for a trip to the Zoo, dont miss the opportunity to board a pontoon boat and see the tiny islands populated with lemurs, monkeys and apes. Spotting the primates perched in treetops and swinging from branches is an excellent way to engage kids (and the shady ride isnt a bad way to beat the heat).BEST PLACE TO BUY WINE IN THE SUMMER The Wine Cellar of NaplesThis is one big wine cellar. Rather than having the wines displayed on shelves at room temperature, this shop in Mercato keeps its complete inventory at 55 degrees and 70 percent humidity just like high-end collectors do. The store features a small reception area that looks like a supremely comfortable living room. An imposing glass door leads you into a vast refrigerated space with pin racks, diamond bins, tasting tables and other wine cellar amenities. Its a gorgeous display of both premium and value wines from around the world. Best of all, its blessedly cool.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 THE BEST 23 BEST NANCY GRACE MOMENT The Dr. Teresa Sievers murder caseWhen Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott was being interviewed by phone on The Nancy Grace Show last August, he tried to explain the complicated set of circumstances leading up to the Estero doctors brutal murder. Ms. Grace replied, Sheriff Scott, my head is absolutely spinning. To which he replied, My head is spinning as well, and has been since the case unfolded. The case, involving the killing of a popular holistic doctor in her 40s with two young children allegedly by her husband, his best friend and a possible hit man nicknamed The Hammer was salacious fodder for the sensational Ms. Grace as she continued to follow the case. BEST PUPPY LOVEPAWS Assistance DogsPaws Assistance Dogs has the cutest and most cuddly cadets in training. Stevie Ray, named by the family and friends of Stephen Leonard, who passed away last year, is one of the cutest. Mr. Leonard was an animal lover and supported many local charities; his namesake golden retriever pup will grow up to assist a combat wounded veteran. Good dog! BEST SISTERLY LOVE STORYThe Vagina MonologuesFor the fifth year, more than a dozen local actresses gave of their time and talent to stage a performance of Even Enslers groundbreaking The Vagina Monologues at the Sugden Community Theatre. The women poured heart and soul into their roles, all to benefit Project HELP, the only state-certified rape and victim-of-violent-crime advocacy center in Collier County. Bravo, ladies! This years performance raised $17,000 to help Project HELP continue providing free and confidential services to more than 5,000 clients every year. The 2016 cast of The Vagina Monlogues Stevie Ray SWFLS PREMIER DINNER THEATRE1380 Colonial Boulevard, Fort Myers 239.278.4422 BEST FORBIDDEN LOVE STORYWet Goddess: Recollections of a Dolphin LoverMalcolm J. Brenners Wet Goddess is an offbeat, explicit romance novel that details how a young, pot-smoking hipster and a performing dolphin named Ruby fall madly in love in the early 1970s. Its unique in the pantheon of forbidden love stories, even more and daringly so for being based on the authors own experiences. For a self-published work of such inherent strangeness with its unabashed descriptions of the narrators sexual adventures with a seafaring mammal, it has also proved intriguing to readers. It has sold sl owly but with surprising consistency at Sandman Book Company and online about 1,300 copies since first being published in 2010. Its also a fascinating look at a specific time in history at an old Florida fun park and at dolphins themselves. BEST NEW BOOKThe Allure of Immortality: An American Cult, a Florida Swamp, and a Renegade ProphetDont let the Oxford comma in the title throw you off reading this book about Cyrus Teed and the Koreshans, a cult that settled in Estero in the 1890s. Author Lyn Millner, an associate professor of journalism at Florida Gulf Coast University, did a masterful job of recreating Mr. Teed, the Koreshans and a time and place more than a century ago.

The road was briefly closed while the pilot made some adjustments, after which he took right back off. Were glad he made it out safely, but we have to wonder why he didnt land at DadeCollier Training and Transition Airport, located right there at the county line. BEST SCRATCH AND SNIFFBacon Scented UnderwearMarrying the ultimate in comfort and cured meat, J&Ds Bacon Scented Underwear represents the gold standard of meat-scented luxury undergarments. Each pair is handcrafted in the USA to offer the support of briefs, the freedom of boxers and the smell of breakfast cooking in your pants. (Not recommended for mail carriers, zookeepers, veterinarians or lion tamers.)BEST EXAMPLE OF HOW NOT TO WIN DAD OF THE YEARSteven KeoppelSouthwest Floridians locals love heading to the Keys for lobster season and hauling in the legal daily limit of six count em, six bugs per person, per day. When local attorney Steven Koeppel took his sons, John, 24, and Kyle, 22, lobster diving last July, the Florida Fish and Game Commission stopped their boat on a hunch. Sure enough, the men, who according to the FWC looked nervous, had 46 lobsters aboard. Lobster divers who heed the law were especially outraged when the father and sons were fined only $100 each, plus court costs. They also received probation, six months, which is already over in plenty of time for the 2016 lobster season. BEST STASHA truckload of cocaineAn East Naples man was arrested in February for transporting 46 kilograms of cocaine in his truck bed after Collier County deputies pulled him over for a window tint violation. When officers searched the 2011 Chevrolet GMC truck, they found a suitcase full of the contraband. The driver said he picked up the stash in Fort Myers and was to be paid $10,000 upon delivering it to Miami. He pleaded no contest to possession with intent to distribute 5 kilograms or more of cocaine and could serve up to 10 years in federal prison. BEST FAMILY OUTINGBiking the Gordon River GreenwayFamily bike rides can be an interesting prospect in Naples. For an especially enjoyable one, load everyone up and breeze down the Gordon River Greenway. Accessible from Golden Gate Parkway, the 1.5-mile paved loop offers pedestrians and cyclists a scenic view of Naples wild interior that includes mangroves, backwaters and wildlife.BEST NEW DINING HOT SPOT7th Avenue SocialJust a skootch off the beaten path of oh-so-chic Fifth Avenue South, this newcomer has charmed patrons with its devil-may-care dcor that includes comfortable couches and chairs for lounging and a menu that features house-made pickles, a spiny lobster boat, shrimp and grits, arroz con pollo and ghost chili burger.

OK, maybe its not so common, but you wouldnt know that judging by the new International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, which doctors use to code medical billing. The specific code for burn due to water-skis on fire is V91.07XA. The ICD-9, which took effect last year, includes roughly 68,000 codes, at least five times as many as the previous edition, in an attempt to capture greater detail for economic and research purposes. Doctors collectively rolled their eyes. There are plenty of other codes for numerous conditions, including injuries suffered when walked into a lamppost, struck by turtle and even sucked into a jet engine. BEST CLASS ACT, YEAR AFTER YEARThe Renaissance Academy at FGCUThe lifelong learning program at Florida Gulf Coast University brings a world of opportunities to anyone who wants to broaden his or her horizons as a student or share expertise and experience as an instructor.

PAGE 112 FLORIDA WEEKLY28 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 BEST PLACE FOR NON-HUMAN REHAB AND RECOVERYThe von Arx Wildlife HospitalThe veterinary team at von Arx Wildlife Hospital at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida has really pulled together to heal and release rapidly increasing numbers of injured native wildlife. Since 2012, the hospitals annual patient count has risen from 2,759 to 3,591 (the latest numbers, for 2015). Spokeswoman Catherine Bergerson says causes are largely attributed to animal interactions with humans. There is a chance, however, that more people know about the wildlife hospital and are more likely to bring injured animals in for treatment as well. So how is staff coping with the influx of injured rats, bats and birds? Part of why we are so successful is because we have amazing volunteers and strong community support, Ms. Bergerson says. We think our volunteers and community supporters make The von Arx Wildlife Hospital the best.BEST NON-HUMAN ELDERCAREThe Naples ZooThe animals at The Naples Zoo really have the life, so much that they have a hard time kicking off when the rest of their species does. This past February, staff said their final farewells to two residents whose ages had far surpassed the rest of their zoo-bound species: Selou, a 16-year-old kudu, and Denver, a 33-year-old Cuban iguana. Selou outlived the average captive male kudu lifespan by four years and was euthanized when his health took a sudden (and predictable) turn, while Denver kept trucking for 13 years after her anticipated drop-dead date. Both animals had the distinguished designation of being the oldest captive member of their species in North America until the day they died. BEST NEW DAILY NEWSPAPER PUBLISHERMike JungMr. Jung has been the publisher of the Fort Myersbased daily since last summer. But you havent seen much of his face at least not the way you saw his predecessors. The only time we seem to see his photo is when a small headshot accompanies his column. Thats a major change from the previous publisher, who ordered her picture to be in the paper way too often and way too large. It was all me-meme to the previous publisher. Welcome to Southwest Florida, Mr. Jung. COURTESY PHOTOThis young fox squirrel came to The von Arx Wildlife Hospital responsive but weak and dehydrated. It made a full recovery and was returned to the wild.

Rick ScottFolks on the other side of the state might remember Cara Jennings, at right in the photo ab ove, as the self-proclaimed anarchist who kept things stirred up during her two terms as city commissioner in Lake Worth. But Floridians far and wide know her as the patron who called out Gov. Rick Scott during a visit to a Gainesville Starbucks. The video of her confronting the governor, at left in the photo, over job creation and calling him an a-----went viral and prompted the governors political action committee to brew up an attack video calling Ms. Jennings a latte liberal.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 THE BEST 33 BEST SAILING OFF INTO THE SUNSETThe Great Dock Canoe RacesForty years! We had it for 40 years! Naples favorite end-of-season celebration, The Great Dock Canoe Races, comes to the end of the road on May 14. Created in 1977 by Vin DePasquale, owner of The Dock at Crayton Cove, the annual event features canoe races in Naples Bay that combine intense competition, absurdity and beer to create a party that is really hard to let go. We will, though, and well thank Vin for many, many years of coordinating without fail, every year some fun so locals could blow off steam after another grueling tourist season. NEXT BEST SAILING OFF INTO THE SUNSETKimberly and Jereme ShaidleDont all of us sometimes want to throw our lives into a dumpster fire and bolt? Neapolitans Kimberly and Jereme Shaidle did exactly that two years ago and returned from a yearlong Caribbean sea voyage last summer. At 30 years old, the couple decided to ditch their professional careers, sell their stuff, buy a sailboat and head out to sea. Their year brought all kinds of adventure, new friends and skills, an engagement and a blog called Laho Wind that can serve as inspiration for the rest of us. Weve learned that it is not in our best interest to keep the boat stagnant, sitting anchored in one spot for more than a few days or a week Kimberly wrote in an email to Florida Weekly before their return. We tend to think that the same could be said for the real world Its important to keep things alive and moving You can never realize your full potential in this world if you allow yourself to get too comfortable.BEST HOSTILE TAKEOVERGannett buys the Naples Daily NewsLocal media outlets were fascinated in October when Naples Daily News parent company, Journal Media Group, announced it planned to sell the newspaper to Gannett, owner of the Fort Myers-based NewsPress. Ever since, rumors abound that TNP hasnt been entirely gracious to employees at our hometown NDN. While NDN employees come to terms with potential layoffs and FCC investigations to accommodate their future overlords, word on the street is theyve also been subjected to totally sales meeting coups and harassing email floods from TNP editorial staff. To be fair, both newspapers have enthusiastically engaged in blood sport over the years, so maybe TNP is having a difficult time containing itself. For us at Florida Weekly, which is staffed almost entirely with former employees from both papers, were looking on with a mixture of awe, disgust and pity and its really difficult to pick a side.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 THE BEST 35 BEST EGO TRIPMarco Island City Councilman Joe BatteWhat happens when you let a blowhard into office? State investigations into ethics violations, thats what. In July, Marco Island club owner Brien Spina accused City Councilman Joe Batte of abusing his position by filing false noise complaints and pressuring officers to issue unwarranted citations, all initiated by the fact that the city father repeatedly targeted a rental home where Mr. Spina had tenants. Come to find out, the elected official frequently leaned on city staff to enforce his own agenda, like cleaning his neighborhood and doing private patrols of his home. In one email to city staff, he wrote of Mr. Spina: Obviously this owner feels he is above our laws or some bigshot in town and I am prepared to help educate him in any role I need to take!One poor city employee was fired before he could speak with the state about the doctoring of a pertinent police report that resulted in Mr. Spinas tenant receiving a noise complaint after the responding officer decided it was unwarranted. The backdrop to all this? Pressure on Marco City Council to tighten rental restrictions on the tiny island. BEST WAKE-UP CALL A smartphone tornado alertJust when we thought we were too dependent on Apple, iPhones unceremoniously awoke Collier residents about 5 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 17, with a tornado warning during an unusually potent storm system. Though the National Weather Service couldnt confirm actual twisters touched down, residents of Golden Gate, eastern Collier County and downtown Naples suffered a whole lot of damage and reported tornado trails in several neighborhoods. BEST UNCONFIRMED RUMORHandbag searches at the movies?Shortly after the shooting at a Lafayette, Ala., movie theater last summer, community members reported that Regal Hollywood Stadium 20 conducted bag checks for a split second. Enough people must have objected during that split second because it very quickly stopped and the company didnt return phone calls from Florida Weekly to confirm employees searched handbags.BEST OLD BAGSThe Old Bags Luncheon Speaking of handbags (see previous item), we love how a fun-loving group of fundraising women makes some serious money for The Shelter for Abused Women & Children by selling off their gently used but still lovely designer handbags (along with some pristine and very high-end ones, too). This years Old Bags Luncheon & Fashion Show at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort ended up with $??? in the bag for the cause.BEST PLACE FOR THE GOLDEN YEARSNaples, of courseIn a state known for its friendliness to seniors, Naples came out on top as the best city in Florida and third-best city in the nation for retirees, at least according to a report published by New York financial services company SmartAsset. By rating 4,700 U.S. cities by tax rates, recreation and social opportunities for seniors and availability of medical care, the group found that Naples is practically a playground for the nations Medicare recipients. With a low tax rate of 10.2 percent, 27 doctors offices and 9.6 recreation centers per 1,000, its no wonder our shining shores are such a draw for people in their golden years. Is anyone reading this surprised?

Mangia! 6 6 Visit Us On The Naples Pier(Now Open) BEST METEOROLOGICAL PHENOMENONThe meteotsumani of 2016 Dont we have enough weather in Southwest Florida? In the midst of a crazy storm system in January, Naples beaches suffered an event called a meteotsumani that increased water levels to 7 feet, 3 whole feet above where they typically top out on Collier County shorelines. We didnt suffer Tohoku-level devastation, mostly because air pressure disturbances rather than seismic activity disrupted water levels, but it was still pretty weird.BEST SURMOUNTABLE PROBLEMAffordable housingTalk is cheap, Naples housing isnt, and county commissioners have paid a lot of lip service to the problem for 20 years but have done little about it. Half of the problem is that many people assume the issue affects only workers who make minimum wage or less. In truth, however, young professionals, families and public servants are constantly finding themselves priced out of the city they serve. Lehigh Acres to the north and east in Lee County benefits from a whole lot of Naples cash. But heres the rub: Even minimumwage workers deserve shelter, and it seems local officials are painfully unmotivated to grease some wheels. Related fact: Word is spreading that Naples real estate is on track to become overvalued again even though families and young people have been moving farther afield for years to find a place to sleep at night. BEST BIG SPLASHBetsy the loggerheadThe Conservancy of Southwest Florida bid final farewell to Betsy, the beloved loggerhead, releasing the sea turtle near the Ten Thousand Islands on March 29. Betsy had served as an ambassador for her species within the Conservancys Dalton Discovery Center for two years. She had come to the Conservancy weighing 1.07 pounds and measuring 14.1 centimeters in length. To be eligible for release into the wild, captive loggerhead sea turtles must have a carapace length of at least 45 centimeters. At her March 29 release, Betsys carapace was 45 centimeters and she weighed 29.5 pounds. Betsy the loggerhead was named after the late Betsy Sandstrom, a longtime sea turtle advocate and volunteer for the Bonita Springs/Fort Myers Beach organization Turtle Time. Conservancy biologists placed a flipper tag and a PIT tag on the lumbering turtle prior to her release. With these devices in place, if shes ever found by humans again, biologists will be able to determine her origin and release location. Happy trails, Betsy! BEST WASHOUTThe Swamp Buggy ParadeFor the second time in its 60-year history, Naples annual Swamp Buggy Parade was a no-go in 2015. Citing a lack of planning and scheduling conflicts, organizers admitted they were slow to the punch when it came to coordinating with the city for the parades annual march down Tamiami Trail each fall. Weekend events have grown in number over the years, increasing pressure to get plans for the parade submitted much earlier than May, which is when the swamp buggy folks conferred with the city and found they were out of luck. After that disappointment, Swamp Buggy Inc. officials planned dates for the next five years in hopes of avoiding another scheduling debacle. BEST CRAWLTurtles on the TownFifty life-size loggerhead turtle sculptures, each embellished by a different artist went up on the auction block in March as a benefit for the Community Foundation of Collier County, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida and the United Arts Council. The three vital nonprofits collaborated on the yearlong project and will share in the proceeds of approximately $300,000. A bronze sculpture by the late Kathy Spaulding, who called Naples home, served as the mold for the massive, one-of-a-kind pieces of art. Ms. Spauldings family estate also donated one of her original bronzes for the auction, and it generated the evenings highest bid: $47,500 from Maureen and Jim Murphy. The remaining artful turtles drew bids from $5,000 to almost $13,000 at the event that was, well, the talk of the town.

Cartwright is hoping to maintain his title at both 2016 competitions scheduled for later this year. Rock on, Dale!BEST LATERAL MOVEJudge Judy buys a new placeOne of Naples most visible snowbirds, television star Judge Judy Scheindlin, listed her posh Pelican Bay penthouse complete with ocean view, two private elevators and space for family and household staff for $11 million and moved down the street to a house she and her husband bought for $8.9 million. BEST TEAM SPIRITFGCU mens and womens basketball teamsThe FGCU Eagles took Southwest Florida on a rollicking ride this year in basketball. The men, aka Dunk City, made their way to the NCAA Tournament where, as a No. 16 seed, they gave the University of North Carolina something to sweat about before valiantly losing to the No. 1 seed that made it to the finals (but was ultimately beaten by Villanova). The women had a perfect record in Atlantic Sun Conference play, clinched the championship again and ripped their way through five rounds of the Womens National Invitation Tournament, making it to the final, bruising showdown against South Dakota and coming within six points of a national title. Not only did it make for great entertainment, it gave the university and the region great exposure on national television.BEST ROADSIDE RESCUERaccoon down! STAT!An injured raccoon received the very best care after a car hit it on Isle of Capri. After spotting the poor guy seizing on the side of the road, first responders traveling back to the Isle of Capri station stopped their ambulance and firetruck to contain the wounded marsupial until volunteers from the Conservancys von Arx Wildlife Hospital could transport him to Naples for treatment. The best news? The little bandit made a full recovery and was released off Capri Boulevard where he was found.BEST CREATIVE USE OF WHITE SPACELee County Commissioner Larry KikerCommissioner Kikers lobbyist logs contained fewer words and more blank spaces than those of his four fellow commissioners, particularly when it came to the nature of his meetings with lobbyists such as Grand Resorts FMB developer Tom Torgerson. Mr. Kiker attributed the incomplete forms to a lack of training, administrative confusion and different interpretations of the law.BEST MONEY-BACK GUARANTEEFGCU tuition rebateFGCUs proposed new initiative offers students a rebate on their first years tuition if they finish college in four years fulfilling a set of requirements along the way and land a job paying $25,000 or more within six months of graduation. The program aims to better equip students to find success in the workplace and could result in graduates receiving as much as $4,200.BEST HOUSE IN THE HOOD2500 Gordon DriveThere might be better houses, sure, but in 2015 there wasnt a more expensive one sold in Southwest Florida than a 6,000-square-foot Port Royal beauty that went for $45.6 million. Built in 1994, it was originally offered at $80 million. Despite the significant reduction, it was still the priciest property sold in Collier and Lee counties last year. According to one report, Collier County also had the No. 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 most expensive house sales. 8 2 2 20 20 20 15 15 15 15 5 5

PAGE 126 FLORIDA WEEKLY42 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 BEST QUADRUPLE PLAYOne tournament, four holes-in-oneWould you believe it if somebody told you four different people made a hole-in-one during the same golf game? The Force was with organizers at the 28th annual Wildcat Run Mens Invitational in March, when Roger Jaeger, Jim Cangiano, Terry Jungerberg and Keith Masser all hit the sweet spot. Two of them did it in the third nine-hole match and on the sixth hole. The odds that two players would ace the same hole are 17 million to one, according to the National Hole-In-One Registry. The other two shots were taken during the fourth nine-hole match on the sixth and 11th holes.BEST SINGLE PLAYHole-in-one at the Dean Lind Memorial TourneyPerhaps no one was more surprised than golfer Less Riddle when he shot a hole-in-one at this years Dean Lind Memorial Golf-A-Thon at Imperial Golf Club. The 19th annual tournament became the first one ever to have a golfer make the shot of a lifetime. He did it on the 150-yard, par-3 12th hole. As the prize for his successful drive, Mr. Riddle won a 2016 Nissan Maxima that Aaron Walker of Naples Nissan donated to the tournament. We call that two great drives in one day.BEST NERVES OF STEELMildred LessorAccording to a story in Naples Daily News, Mildred Lessor, 78, found herself at the receiving end of two guns when thieves broke into her home on State Road 29 back in January. After being bound and blindfolded, the feisty senior freed one hand to call 911 and, instead of betraying fear or anxiety, told the dispatcher that officers better hurry up. My nerves are shot, she was quoted in the article. Tell them to come and get this arm out so I can make a cocktail. After more than 40 years of deftly handling snakes, floods and sordid characters endemic to the Everglades, she had nothing but contempt for the delinquents who broke into her home and took a box of childhood treasures and firearms but not all of them. Its Sodom and Gomorrah out here, she told columnist Brent Batten at the daily paper. Ill just keep a gun on my hip.BEST FRIENDS TO STRAY CATSThe Naples Cat AllianceThe alliance is singularly focused on solving the persistent problem of homeless cats. The volunteers who run the shelter home to 100 free-roaming cats at a time operate a trap, neuter and return program and adopt out as many cats as they can. They have no end of imaginative fundraising ideas, either, including this years Cat Daddies calendar, featuring photos of their shelter cats and some of the male volunteers who dote on them. Other events that raise money and awareness include the Meow Masquerade and Hats for Cats soirees. Roger Jaeger, Jim Cangiano, Terry Jungerberg and Keith MasserLess Riddle with his lucky club and the new car he won for shooting a hole-in-one at the Dean Lind Memorial Golf-AThon.

The boat club model is a major leader in providing a proven, affordable alternative WHO AM I?NAME: John Giglio TITLE AND COMPANY: President/CEO, Freedom Boat Club YEARS WITH THE COMPANY: 12 YEARS IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA: 19 years NATURE OF BUSINESS: Boating/Service Organization EDUCATION: MBA University of South FloridaJohn GiglioPresident/CEO, Freedom Boat Club How did you first get into business?My first foray into business after college was working in an HR capacity for a temporary staffing firm. I then joined a company that owned a chain of successful auto body stores and worked in operations. After three years, I became a partner and my role expanded to include all aspects including operations, HR, accounting and marketing. I enjoyed a hands-on opportunity to learn how to successfully operate a small business. What are some recent trends youve seen in your industry?While the boating industry overall was dealt a severe blow in 2009 by the economic recession, we have seen an uptick and slow but steady growth the past few years. With this growth has come a greater demand for marina slip space.What lessons did you learn from the Great Recession?Unlike most marine industry businesses, our niche enjoyed significant positive growth as a result of the recession. When the economy tanked, our affordable alternative to traditional boat ownership became a very attractive solution for active boaters who didnt want to give up their favorite recreational pastime and lifestyle. We learned the importance of investing in our fleet, along with consistently marketing of our brand messages to educate the public about our offerings. Lessons learned: weve enjoyed a 20% year-on-year revenue growth over the past five years.Whats your vision for the future of your business? We have two divisions: the corporate entity includes 17 clubs we own and operate from Bradenton to Marco Island; the franchise business is nationwide. Our corporate vision includes targeted expansion, plus the purchasing of marinas on the west coast of Florida. Slip space is a prerequisite for our growth. On the franchise front, we reached the 100 club milestone in 2015 and launched our first international club in Vancouver, BC this year. Within four years, we will double our footprint nationally and abroad.What trends do you see impacting your industry in the next two to four years?There is a focus on making boating more affordable in order to grow the market. The boat club model is a major leader in providing a proven, affordable alternative to traditional boat ownership. Other non-traditional options include fractional ownership and peer-to-peer. The sharing economy or collaborative consumption mindset is particularly appealing to Millennials, so we expect this trend to help stimulate growth within this important demographic. Another major trend addresses the shift in overall U.S. demographics and the powerful growth projections in multicultural; markets. Freedom Boat Club is an early adopter in multicultural initiatives. We hired a full-time multicultural sales and marketing manager to lead our efforts and we are actively engaged with this market in SW Florida.How do you expect the Southwest Florida economy to grow?Were projecting solid growth. New housing starts are on the rise. More importantly, we have documented notable growth in our corporate membership base with newcomers who have recently relocated to the area. With the steady influx of new residents and positive population growth comes the stimulation of small business which will directly impact the service industry. What do you look for in recruiting new talent? We are so blessed in this regard! Our corporate division has doubled in size since 2012 and we are fortunate that the area has so many active, younger retired professionals who are seeking enjoyable second careers. We never have problem finding great talent! Whats the most important business lesson youve learned?Stick to what you know! Continue to innovate and improve your core business, but stay focused and do what you do better than anyone else. What would people be surprised to know about you?Many people assume that Ive been a boater all my life. Truth is, my wife taught me to drive a boat at the age of 23! Who would have dreamed I would own the worlds largest and oldest boating club one day? Thanks to my wife and her family, boating has become an integral part of my both my life and now my career.

Located Inside! BEST EXAMPLE OF NOT IN MY BACKYARD! Certain Bonita retirees Who knew the idea of a new high school in Bonita Springs could ruffle so many feathers? The school, which the Lee County School District says is very much needed, would possibly be built near Imperial Parkway. But some folks in nearby gated communities are convinced it would create noise issues during football season. Many are retirees and snowbirds who chose the area so they could live in peace and quiet. Lee County school board members approved the controversial location in April a decision expected to be followed by a lawsuit in an ongoing saga that has lasted for more than two years.BEST WAY TO WAKE THE UNDEADHere Come the MummiesKing Tut would be jamming in his tomb if he could see Here Come the Mummies perform. The unique funk band composed of exceptional musicians who dress as Imhoteps minions headlines Punta Gordas Funk Fest every March. And each year, the crowds grow as word-of-mouth spreads faster than a biblical plague. Funk Fest is the brainchild of father-and-son producers Matt and Nick Nemec, who organized the first one in 2009 essentially as an excuse to bring the bold, brassy Mummies to town. Fear about how some people would take to the groups innuendo-laden lyrics proved groundless. Concertgoers of all ages dig the Mummies. If nothing else, the group answers the ageold question, Is there sex after death?BEST HEART ATTACK ON PLATE Donut BurgerFor those who enjoy pushing back against all those strident health recommendations regarding sugar, processed food, white carbohydrates and red meat with a big slice of Stick This On Your Plate and Eat It, the donut burger cannot be denied. It consists of a thick meat patty with American cheese and bacon between two glazed donuts. Mmmm! Tuck into one (but dont forget your statin) or any of more than a dozen specialty burgers on the menu at Brooks Gourmet Burgers & Dogs.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 THE BEST 53 BEST REASON FOR A CHICKEN TO CROSS THE ROADLiving in Key WestWhats the best reason for a chicken to cross the road? Because it lives in Key West, where city ordinance forbids killing any of the islands roughly 3,000 free-roaming chickens. If you harm one of the cluckers you run afoul of the law, as one tour guide put it. BEST LAST MESSAGE RECEIVEDStopChances are you missed a historical anniversary earlier this year. Stop. The final telegram ever in the U.S. was sent in 2006. Stop. The first was sent in 1844. Stop. The first was from inventor Samuel Morse. Stop. It said, What hath God wrought. Stop. Who now remembers telegrams? Stop. India continued using telegraphy until 2013, but in the age of texting, emails and cellphones the telegram became obsolete. Stop, forevermore.BEST ITS ABOUT TIMETaking the crime out of shacking upThe Sunshine State has quite a reputation for being out of touch regarding social mores (medical marijuana, anybody?), but the Legislature brought the law books into the 20th century on at least one front in March by decriminalizing cohabitation between men and women. The House of Representatives voted 112-5 (who were the five?) to repeal Floridas prohibition on cohabitation. Albeit unenforced for many years, the law had been on the books since 1868, when a couple could be fined $500 for living in sin and sentenced to 60 days in jail for engaging in open behavior that is gross lewdness and lascivious. The entire statute was repealed in April when Gov. Rick Scott signed the bill. It was, indeed, about time.BEST PLACE TO GET YOUR VA-VA-VOOM BACKDr. Manuel Pea Dr. Pea is now offering ThermiVa, a new nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation system that has the highest satisfaction among patients discussing procedures in the RealSelf forum.
