C26-27 Floridas Paradise Coast-Naples, Marco Island and the Everglades saw another record-setting year for tourism in 2015, with not only a healthy increase in visitors, but significant increases in spending and economic impact. Visitors are defined as those staying in hotels, short-term vacation rentals and campgrounds, and do not include seasonal residents who own their own properties. Visitation in 2015 jumped 3.1 percent over the 2014 total to 1,829,500. Direct spending by visitors of $1.3 billion represented an 8 percent increase over 2014. INA STANCEL AND HER TWO NEIGHbors patrol the streets where they live on the river side of McGregor Boulevard, scanning with small, powerful LED lights. The group checks out drainage ditches, strolling along the street and sidewalk. They take long, slow steps into front yards, pushing around in the bushes. Theyve got weapons and theyre ready to kill. Their prey is bufo marinus, also known as the marine toad and most recently renamed by biologists as the cane toad. The groups mission can be summed up thusly: Find the cane toads. Kill the cane toads before they get one of ours. For its part, the deadly cane toad never asked to come to Florida in the first place. Humans brought the amphibians here more than 60 years ago. And now that theyre here, they cant help themselves. They secrete a poison that can kill cats and dogs within minutes. They eat native animals. They gorge on pet food and get stuck in drains.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 12-18, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY roger COMMENTARYIce cream nationThe time has come, my fellow capitalists, to begin planning for the vast sea of opportunities certain to arise in the American economy only months from now. It will begin in Texas and extend to Florida. By the middle of May next year, the weather along the Texas border will be warm enough to fry an egg on a rattlesnakes back. Thats ice cream weather, friends. Donald Trump will be eating taco salads prepared in the Trump Tower grill in New York and flown to Washington to be delivered to the back door of the White House. (There, throughout the history of the United States, small brown delivery men or large black ones have frequently been required to report, which will lend a comfortable familiarity to the routine). And in Texas, meanwhile, the largest force of pick and shovel operators assembled since FDRs Work Progress Administration of the 1930s might be riding into the Lone Star State on Greyhound buses and the tops of train cars and in the backs of watermelon or hay trucks or maybe theyll just be walking down that ol lonesome road, as Woody Guthrie said, with their two-dollar shoes a-hurtin their feet, and their cornbread and peas a-hurtin their bellies. At least thats what I envisioned at first. More likely, though, theyll come in Ford, Chevy and Dodge pickups, or on Harley-Davidson choppers, the trucks and leather jackets sporting NRA stickers and Take Back Our Country slogans and Make America Great Again mantras. Theyll come to work, because that wall has to be tall. Fifty feet tall. And it has to be long. Eight hundred miles long. And it has to be American by delegation, not by direct action. You see, the contemporary army of workers wont be coming to work on the wall, because thats too hard. Mr. Trump has already delegated that job between bites of his taco salad to the Mexicans. So Im afraid it will not be made in the U.S.A. At first, I was discouraged by that because I thought we could all use a little toughening up, like our parents or grandparents. I envisioned us all wandering into Texas still fat and potato pale next May, after Mr. Trump has been in the White House for four months. But by September or October wed be as brown as nut-berries and as lean and sinewy as beef jerky.At first I thought, Damn, the rich boy comes up with a great idea, one that could provide 1 million well-paying jobs to eager young obese Americans, and then he just up and gives it away to Mexico. We need them to keep sneaking in here illegally so we can underpay them to harvest tomatoes and watermelons and to put roofs on our houses. We cant have em building border walls just when these new gated communities are going up all over Florida. Thats what I thought, but now I see I was wrong. I want to personally apologize to Mr. Trump and all his supporters for underestimating his brilliant strategic thinking. Now I see Mr. Trumps economic strategy, and I applaud him. He is going to create millions of jobs for us, the Americans but not carrying shovels and picks. And not even driving bulldozers or cement trucks. No, his strategy is to make the United States the most powerful ice cream nation the globe has ever seen. He will maneuver those Mexicans around the dance floor of international politics like a master, and set em up so we can sell em millions of tons of ice cream and Pepsi, the traditional Republican soft drink of choice. So now, I recommend that we all go into the ice cream business, or the soda pop business, because its hot in Texas. In the summer. And those Mexicans building that wall are going to want to buy a hell of a lot of ice cream and soda pop during their siestas. (Do Mexicans still take siestas? Ive only ever seen Mexicans working. Hard. On rooftops or in fields. I have not seen any Mexicans taking siestas). We need ice cream makers and bowls and spoons and cones. We need cows to produce the milk and cream, and refrigerated trucks to deliver it all. And best of all? We need sugar, and lots of it. Thats why I expect Mr. Trump to get even more practical and by the way, its that ferocious pragmatism, devoid of any concern for others, that so many of us Americans appear to love about him. Anyway, heres how hell do it. Mr. Trump is supported by Gov. Rick Scott of Florida. Who is, in turn, the darling of such Florida sugar honchos as the Fanjul brothers and the owners of U.S. Sugar. Who together grow about 400,000 acres of cane around Lake Okeechobee. To make enough ice cream and soda pop to supply the wall builders, therefore, were going to have to grow more sugar. And that means grow it where it grows best: in the Everglades.So its clear to me that Mr. Trump has long since figured out what we all know, if were honest: Its time to do away with the Glades, which have cost Americans far too much in money and anxiety already, while just sitting there doing nothing.Mr. Trumps plan is typically audacious: Hes by God going to muck out that worthless and dangerous Lake Okeechobee, extend the vast system of canals and pumps American taxpayers already maintain in the 700,000-acre Everglades Agricultural Area around the lake for the sugar barons, and grow sugar cane from the Kissimmee River valley south to Florida Bay. Can you imagine? The jobs will be unheard of! The ice cream economy will make a war-time economy look like a recession. I like chocolate, myself. What about you? And Ill bet those Mexicans do, too. 7200 Trail Boulevard, Naples, (239) 598-3330 | Other locations in Ft. Myers, Sarasota, Tarpon Springs and Pinellas Park |

Nobody asks a man what he has in his wallet. He has a man card. It doesnt have to think about it. It just is; and though the scales may be tipped against him by some prejudice of identity or difference, being a man isnt one of them. A man card is like a gender-based hall pass that gets you instant social, legal and material advantage in most cultures, including our own. Women, on the other hand, carry a woman card. They do have to think about it. The woman card comes with a large balance due and the expectation its bearer will run a lifelong, gender-based deficit. Receiving a womans card at birth automatically incurs indebtedness that must be overcome in a mans world. A womans talent, intellect, passion and moral character may carry her and her gender forward, only to have opportunities foreclosed by a glass ceiling. Then some brave Amazonian soul breaks through and women rise up and meet with success, but the man card still gets played. Woe to the woman who is or aspires to be the first anything where only the man card has currency. Just ask Hillary Clinton or any woman, really. Women begin two lengths behind the starting line in every race that men dominate. The habit is customary, even unto the founding of the nation. For example, the U.S. Constitution did not originally grant women any specific rights. Abigail Adams anticipated the oversight before the framers put pen to paper. She wrote her husband, John Adams, encouraging him and the Continental Congress to not forget the ladies once the nations independence was won. She wrote, I long to hear that you have declared an independency. And, by the way, in the new code of laws which I suppose it will be necessary for you to make, I desire you would remember the ladies and be more generous and favorable to them than your ancestors. Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. Remember, all men would be tyrants if they could. If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation. She knew of what she spoke. It took a civil war and the Congressional battle over the 15th Amendment for women to get the issue of their enfranchisement on the table. The 15th Amendment passed Congress and subsequently ratified by the states in 1870. But it granted only African-American men the right to vote. It took women fomenting another 50 years before the U.S. House of Representatives saw fit to consider an amendment giving women the same privilege. Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucrecia Mott, Alice Paul and thousands of their followers joined in the fight for the right. In 1919, they won approval by Congress of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote. The states ratified the amendment the following year. The U.S Treasury is honoring these early feminists. The images of Anthony, Stanton, Mott and Paul will be incorporated into the $10 bill. It is a timely gesture but for a reason in addition to the obvious one. The only specific right granted to women by the Constitution is the right to vote; and nada, nothing more. Whoa, millennial gals might say. How can that be? A bright lawyer pipes up (the first woman named partner in a previously allmale firm), Arent women protected from sex discrimination under the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment? Well, thats debatable. The recently departed Supreme Court Justice, Antonin Scalia, didnt think so. His originalist view of the matter was the 14th Amendment did not outlaw sex discrimination. Said Scalia, The only issue is whether it prohibits it. It doesnt. Nobody ever thought that thats what it meant. Nobody ever voted for that. If the current society wants to outlaw discrimination by sex, hey, we have things called legislatures, and they enact things called laws. Its the type of jurisprudence that raises questions once thought settled; and, given its progenitor, should register an uh-oh for those witnessing the sexist, racist, and contentious gender politics roiling the race for the presidency. The Republican Partys presumptive nominee is using his man card to defame the Democrats leading candidate, a woman. She is loud, lacks strength, and, most damning of all, she is a woman. Said he, Frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I dont think shed get 5 percent of the vote... In other words, no women need apply for the job. The empathy accorded Clintons gender is the only qualification she can claim. In 1982, the Equal Rights Amendment was defeated three states short needed for ratification. No ERA means the Constitution does not explicitly guarantee the rights it protects are held equally by all citizens, without regard to sex. So, whats in your wallet? n p d i w y We dont care that Trump is not telling the truthEditors note: When somebody emailed former Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas Molloy a Washington Times editorial (Jan. 7) by one-time Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, the writer added a section under the Gingrich byline purporting to be the politicians words. Mr. Gingrich recommended Donald Trumps book, The Art of the Deal, to readers. The anonymous writer then recommended Mr. Trump to voters, comparing him to a man a homeowner should hire to get rid of raccoons in the basement, no matter what he looks or smells like. This is Mr. Molloys response. I have gone through the five stages of grief regarding all presidential candidates. I was in denial for a long time, but now I am at acceptance. Mark Twain said Americans get the candidate they deserve. And they will: as I write it will either be Mrs. Clinton or Mr. Trump. I dont have a political party, or unfortunately, any candidate to support for the most important position in our world. But my lifes work has been about my l ove, my pas sion, my belief in this country. That sounds like something I might set up for a punch line. It aint. So: what if the smelly, alcoholic, muchmarried, butt-cr acked guy the email describes the man that you hire to get the raccoons out of the basement lied to you about raccoons actually being in the basement? What if he created your belief and fear that there were raccoons in the basement, even went around the neighborhood scaring all the old couples, the working people who dont have time to check the basement, and folks who want to believe there are raccoons in the basement, for unhappy reasons of their own? That would be a great businessman: Creating a demand for him to fill a need that doesnt exist. Anything wrong with that? Maybe not. Im not sure. But there arent any raccoons in the basement. When Mr. Trump says we should make America great again, I have to gently suggest: America is great. Right now. We have prosperity and freedoms that no other country enjoys. You hear that phrase all the time, but we really freakin do. I know a lot about the criminal justice system in the United States and the criminal justice systems in other countries, and ours is, not perfect, but amazing and just. We are a strong, compassionate, and intelligent nation. And that the United States is a strong vibrant nation is how we are perceived around the world. The wall is impossible to build, by every estimate, Republican, Democrat, architect, designer, construction person, anyone who has built a wall or held a shovel. The whole idea is a sad joke that would be a lot funnier if it just didnt symbolize hate. The last country that built a wall that revealed a similar symbol of ugliness of the soul, albeit to keep people in, was the Communist-built Berlin Wall, and they killed people from that wall vantage point. The cynical idea about the wall that could never be built serves no purpose other than to get applause at a rally. Illegal immigration from Mexico has gone down by the hundreds of thousands of people over the past few years. It is neither an economic problem nor a criminal one. A loathing exists in the country I cant understand. A disgust I cant understand. I have not seen so much hate against our country by our country since the Oklahoma City bombing. Disagree with the candidates. Disparage their views. But dont hate them. Dont drown in that unreasonable bitterness. These people running for office, including Mr. Trump, Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Sanders, have given up any semblance of a normal life to push forth their ideas for the country they love. All of them. We have to acknowledge that. And respect it. I dont dislike Mr. Trump. He is a very intelligent, manipulative businessman (and therefore successful) with a cynicism that is flat-out stunning (and successful), because he knows we cant build any kind of wall, but he knows how it plays to the crowd and has no compunction using it. Kind of fearless in a way: I think he genuinely doesnt care what he says as long as cheers and applause follow it. But dearly beloved, he knows we cant renegotiate our business agreement with China: we dont have one. He knows that. He knows that almost everything he states is incorrect, purposefully misleading, and in a very weird way, inspiring to the folks he was never one of and never will be. The contempt that cynicism shows for the people he is talking to is impressive, deformed and astonishing. The only victim, so far, of Mr. Trumps campaign is the truth. But the other truth is: we dont care. One of Robert Penn Warrens characters in his great novel, All the Kings Men, offered this advice to the Huey Long-type candidate: Whatever you do, Willie, stir em up, make em mad, even mad at you. But never have them think. Now, we have to think about what were doing, with the smarts and bravery we possess. MOLLOY

A6 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 12-18, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY PROFILE IN PARADISENo drama, just dedication and passion for kids and theater As the end of the school year draws near, Leah Porrata is gearing up to be in full summer swing. As director of education at Gulfshore Playhouse, shes planning, plotting, creating and calculating the companys STAR Academy summer camps. Summer is when Student Theatre Artists in Residence step into the spotlight on the same stage professional actors and crew work during the rest of the year. There are so many ways for them to shine, Leah says about the kids who take part in programs from specialty camps for the younger actors to musical theater intensives for high-school thespians. Summer also brings two full-scale childrens theater productions to life on stage at The Norris Center; this years shows are Disneys The Jungle Book and Disneys Beauty and the Beast Jr. Every STAR childs summer camp tuition is subsidized; not a single students tuition truly covers all of the expenses associated with putting a child through camp, Leah says, adding many participants come from households that simply could not afford the full tuition cost, as reduced as it already is. She estimates that about half of all of the summer students need some kind of scholarship assistance in order to have the STAR experience. We strive to create a place where every child can be cared for and nurtured, where creativity and self-expression are encouraged, where friends are made and selfconfidence built, and where each child can both fit in and stand out, she says. Leah has fond memories of growing up in Columbus, Ohio. Her mother enrolled her in acting classes when Leah was just 5 years old something Leah says she barely remembers. At Hilliard Davidson High School in the suburbs, her favorite class was choir. I adore music, and my high school choir director is one of my biggest teaching influences to this day, she says. She graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University in 2013, earning a bachelor of arts in theater education with a concentration in performance/directing along with a teaching certificate in drama/theater for grades Pre-K through 12. Her first job after college was as a teaching artist for Columbus Childrens Theatre, where she had grown up performing. It was a great first step, she says. She then began an apprenticeship in theater education at the Tony Award-winning Cleveland Play House. Not only was that a springboard into her career in professional theater, its also where she met her husband, Jason. The Cleveland apprenticeship led to Leah being hired for her current position with Gulfshore Playhouse. To find out more about the education opportunities at Gulfshore Playhouse, visit Bob Harden is the producer and host of The Bob Harden Show, airing online from 7-8 a.m. weekdays at Past shows are archived on the website. Mentor: I have many, but one who sticks out is Bill Goldsmith, the artistic director of Columbus Childrens Theatre. He has invested his time and talents in me since I was 12 years old, and I couldnt be more grateful. Its little wonder that so many Broadway and lm/television stars today call him their biggest in uence.Something your mother was right about: The truth will always come out, so just be honest.As a kid, what did you want to do when you grew up? This! Teaching and directing theater with kids of all ages and backgrounds.What would you be doing if you werent doing this? I would be a kindergarten teacher, hands down.Guilty pleasures: Sleeping in whenever I can. And ice cream. The Publix stores around here all carry Graeters Ice Cream, an Ohio staple. A pint is like a little trip home in a spoon!Pet peeve: People who dont check their email.Next vacation destination: My husband and I go to Disney World about once a month. One thing on your bucket list: Im dying to see Hamilton, just like everyone else.Hidden talent: Ive been a certi ed rock climbing and ropes course instructor. Its the one athletic thing Ive ever been good at.Skill or talent you wish you had: I wish I could play the piano. Even 13 years of lessons couldnt give me that skill.Advice for kids: Find what makes you happy and do it as much as you can.Best thing about kids: Everything! With the little ones, its the fact that nothing embarrasses them; theyre 100 percent themselves, 100 percent of the time, loud and proud. With the middle ones, its their amazing capacity for growth and learning; if they put their mind to something, they can accomplish anything. With the older ones, teenagers, its the way they constantly surprise me with their insight and creativity.What makes you laugh? My husband. Hes the funniest man alive.Last book you read: The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden by Kevin DeYoung. Its a beautifully told and illustrated version of the Bible written for children, and its very artistically inspiring.Something youll never understand: Violence.What the Paradise Coast really needs: A brand-new building for Gulfshore Playhouse to grow and shine, of course!

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 12-18, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYDogs will come in salivating, pawing at the mouth. They have brick red mucous membranes. Niqole Varani, hospital administrator and emergency veterinarian at ASHdont respect us. These toads, theyre funny. They just look at you and sort of say, bring it on. Theyre not afraid of you. They just stand there, says Ms. Stancel. Like with lionfish and pythons other exotic species that dont belong here and harm the environment killing the invasive toad is allowed and encouraged. What constitutes a humane way of doing that, however, remains a hot topic of discussion. Whats not up for debate, in neighborhoods that are besieged by the toads, is that they must go. I was out with the trash cans and saw four big-ass toads but I didnt think much about it, recalls retired senior Judge Radford Sturgis. A few days later, he let Chips, his dachshund, out in the backyard. When he returned a few minutes later, the dog was laying on its side. He didnt move. I tried to put some hydrogen peroxide in his mouth but his teeth were clenched. I took the hose and rinsed out his mouth. But by the time I got him to the emergency hospital he had passed. It was all within 15 minutes. When he returned home, he searched the backyard, where he found several cane toads. The veterinary team at ASH, Animal Specialty Hospital, in Naples, saw two cane cases just last week. As rains pick up into the summer, they expect to see more. Dogs will come in salivating, pawing at the mouth. They have brick red mucous membranes, explains Niqole Varani, hospital administrator and emergency veterinarian at ASH. After you see your first case, you know exactly what to look for. Two parotid glands that run along the toads back, just behind its eyes, carry bufotoxin, a milky-white poison. When a dog or other animal agitates or otherwise comes in contact with the toad, it releases the toxin, which can be lethal, particularly for smaller pets. Some dogs will be paralyzed or convulsing. Well flush them out (with water) for 20 to 30 minutes. Then we treat with activated charcoal, says Dr. Virani. Most dogs that come in survive, but some do not. When the summer rains come in is when we see them (cane toads). They like the humidity and they like the heat, says Lake Worth veterinarian Archie Kleopfer. Hes seen his share of cane toad exposure cases in his 32 years of practice. Cats are too smart, they hardly get poisoned. Dogs we wont say theyre dumb but they like to play and sometimes they bite into (the toads) Ive seen an 85-pound dog laid flat. Some dogs succumb to it and they go into cardiopulmonary collapse. Or they have a seizure and they cant come out of it. Pet owners who suspect their animal has been exposed should first flush the animals mouth out with water as quickly as possible, then take it to a veterinarian. The toxin can cause irritation in humans and is particularly dangerous for small children. While dogs are the most common victims of cane toad exposure, cats and even fish arent safe. Realtor Jim Woodard returned from a camping trip after his neighbors called to tell him that the koi fish in his back yard pond had all died. He saw a cane toad as big as his fist jumping around his deck. The toads eggs are toxic as well, and Mr. Woodard theorizes that some were laid in his pond. He shot the toad with three pellets and it hopped away. Later, he spotted the same toad by his pond. This time, he pinned it down with bricks and let it die. If you see these things, youve got to kill them. Theyre coming for our dogs and cats. Theyve got to go, he said. Unlike other amphibians, even invasive ones, the ire and gross-out-factor that cane toads engender is almost universal among those who encounter them. Perhaps its their flat brown-gray color, their impassive countenances or the menacing dots that sit in two triangular sacks on their backs carrying the bufotoxin. Their call, a cacophonic jackhammer rumble, does nothing for its image either. In Australia, the widely reviled toad has invaded and wreaked environmental damage to a swath that covers nearly 400,000 square miles. In Florida, the last time the cane toad infestation was mapped, their number spread from Miami-Dade, up through Broward into Palm Beach then across the state over Lake Okeechobee to Tampa. There are pockets in Lee County and theyve been showing up in Collier County. They seem to have skipped over Charlotte County. Between Fort Myers and Sarasota, they have not been found there. I dont have a good explanation for that. Their distribution doesnt make any immediate sense to me, said Audrey Wilson, a graduate student at the University of Florida who has been monitoring the toads and is working with Professor Steve Johnson and others to update the distribution maps. People who encounter the toads can report it using an app from Before they kill a toad, they can email photos to Professor Johnson at the University of Florida at to confirm that it is in fact a cane toad. Ms. Wilson has also spent more than a year trying to determine whether or not the toads have invaded natural areas like the Everglades. She has set up frog loggers, remote recording devices, to listen for their distinct call. So far, she has not heard them. Its good news for our native species, she says. After spending years studying the creatures, does she too find them abhorrent? I find it hard not to get attached to my study species. I saw them in their native range and I do find them interesting how theyve been so successful in so many places Im not as disgusted as most people. The cane toads natural range runs from Brazil and northwest up into Central America and into northern Mexico. A research paper from 1968 titled The Ecology of the Neotropical Toad, Bufo Marninus, in South Florida, by Thomas Krakauer, provides what may be the most reliable account of how the toad made its way here. Toads were released at Canal Point in Belle Glade in Palm Beach County as far back as 1936 to fight pests in sugar cane fields. The toads died off. And while there were other attempts to introduce the toads into fields, those populations didnt take hold either. Then, in 1955, toads escaped from an animal importer at Miami International Airport. The animals then began traveling through that citys canal system and by the mid 1960s, at least one Dade County commissioner was proposing that a bounty be placed on the toads. Some exotic pet dealers still sell the toads, and its theorized that occasionally, those critters are released or escape, contributing to the infestation as well. From a purely anecdotal perspective, I would say that cane toads are spottily distributed in our region but where they are found their abundance can be exceedingly high. For example, where I lived in San Carlos Park on a cool damp night we had a density of about 20 toads per lot (0.1 acres)! However, if you went three streets over, still in San Carlos Park, you wouldnt find any. I have visited many sub-divisions and I would say cane toads were present in about 50 percent of them. Fast-forward 10 years, I think they will be everywhere and in huge numbers no direct data KILLER TOADSFrom page 1Jerry Higby, a board member of the Calusa Nature Center, displays a large cane toad.

Herman, assistant professor of wildlife biology at Florida Gulf Coast University. And so it is that we find ourselves with Ms. Stancel in her Fort Myers neighborhood. The small-framed surgical technician shows off her BB gun that looks like a Glock. Carolin Lehnert, who has redone her landscaping and installed a buried screen perimeter around her yard to keep the toads out, peeks down drainage grates. Jerry Higby, a wildlife trapper from up the street, tags along tonight, but he often works solo or for hire. He makes his living removing gators or raccoons from properties. Recently, some clients have called asking him to remove cane toads as well. In his neighborhood, he hunts pro bono. I go to the (drainage) grate with my machete and get them, he brings his arm down twice, reenacting the thrusts he uses to impale the toads. Mr. Higby is an animal lover. So are Ms. Lehnert and Ms. Stancel. Thats why when the topic of killing the toads come up, the standard answer is, I dont want the PETA folks (animal rights activists) coming after me. But then, the hunter, any hunter, will tell you just how its done. Some people swear by smacking and thrusting with the business end of a shovel. Others use a frog gig, a gadget used for harvesting frog legs that impales the toad on spikes. This method can prove messy, however, since removing the toads from the spikes one by one requires hands-on contact. The University of Florida recommends the following humane procedure: Purchase a small tube of benzocaine ointment (used as a pain-killer for toothaches and teething.) Take a strip of ointment about one inch long (more for very large toads) and spread it down the midline of the neck and back of the toad, In 5-10 minutes, the toad will be groggy; in 15-20 minutes it should be unconscious, and in about 30-40 minutes it will be dead or close to dead. At this point, put the frog in a plastic container or plastic bag and freeze it for three days. For the people dealing with infestations in their neighborhoods, the instructions are laughable. For Ms. Stancel, a quick BB to the back of the head at close range does the job faster and appears to be more humane. She carries around a pooper-scooper to easily cart off the carcasses. Im an animal lover, she says. Im involved with animal rescue. I wont kill a spider. On this night, however, there are no toads to be found. Ms. Stancel and Ms. Lehnert bagged two of them the night before. Since she started doing this two years ago, Ms. Stancel has killed more than 130 toads. Shes stopped counting though, because she hunts every night during cane toad season. More and more neighbors have asked her to come check their yards, so a patrol can take 45 minutes to an hour. Shes happy to do it. Its apparent that she relishes this mission that shes taken on voluntarily. Shes committed to the fight to keep her dogs safe, she says. With a grin and swagger, gun in one hand and scooper in the other, she keeps scanning the bushes with the endgame in mind. My veterinarian says its possible to hunt a species to extinction, she says.

Exposure to bufotoxinThe cane toads toxin can cause irritation in human eyes and mucous membranes. It makes animals severely sick and is deadly, particularly smaller animals. Symptoms include drooling, head shaking, crying, loss of coordination and convulsions. Dogs gums turn bright red.

PAWS Assistance Dogs begins literacy program at Fun Time SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Childrens Literacy and Education PAWS Project, a community service program of PAWS Assistance Dogs, brings service dogs in-training to Fun Time Early Childhood Academy to help youngsters focus on reading, writing, character building and social interactions. Fun Times mission is to prepare preschoolers for kindergarten, with an emphasis on being ready to read. The academy employs a curriculum guided by Florida School Readiness and Head Start performance standards. Were very excited about watching the children learn and grow through this experience, academy Director Barbara Tyrell says about the PAWS program. Its a wonderful experience for all of us, especially the children. PAWS has several rotating teams working with Fun Time. Twice a month, two teams of PAWS service dogs intraining with their trainers visit the school and read to the students. The experience encourages the children to sit quietly and listen, take care not to step on a paw or tail, keep fingers away from a service dogs eyes or mouth and pet the pups gently. Our volunteers love to work with the dogs and see them progress in their training, says PAWS ambassador Ellen Scott. Likewise, the children are so excited to see the dogs and learn about them. They are extremely attentive during the reading sessions. Eventually the children will participate more in the sessions by helping to turn pages correctly in a book, sound out letters and begin to read, PAWS founder Jeannie Bates says. The experience is beneficial for the dogs as well as for the children, she adds. The canines learn to go to an unfamiliar setting and learn to sit or lie quietly in front of eager, excited, squirming children, and the children learn to read. Some of these children have not had the experience of being around wellbehaved dogs, and they are learning to trust and interact with them, Ms. Bates says. PAWS Assistance Dogs is a nonprofit organization that promotes independence for combat wounded veterans and children with life-changing disabilities through partnerships with skilled assistance dogs.

VPK runs from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, starting June 6 and ending Aug. 5. The curriculum is designed to prepare children for kindergarten so they start school ready to read, ready to learn and ready to enjoy the educational experience. Children must be 4 years of age as of Sept. 1, 2015, and cannot have attended another VPK program. Space for the summer session is limited. For more information about registration and to arrange a tour of the academy, call 261-8284 or visit for volunteersIf youre thinking ahead to fall and know you will have some time on your hands, consider signing up for volunteer duty at Fun Time. There are several ways to get involved: Tutors are always needed to work oneon-one for 20-30 minutes during the school day with Fun Time students ages 3 to 5 years old, reinforcing the literacy concepts that are being taught in the classroom. Each volunteer visits the same child every week from November through mid-April; volunteers often choose to have assignments of two to three children each visit. The volunteers read books to the children, and together they engage in a related math, literacy, science or art activity to further the learning experience. Chaperones and helpers are always needed to accompany Fun Time groups on school field trips. If youre handy with tools, your skills can be put to work constructing and/ or repairing classroom and playground equipment. And if youre handy with a camera, your talents will be welcome to record special events and programs throughout the school year.

Vu is fighting extradition to France for taking her 9-year-old daughter in violation of the fathers custody claim and is locked up until a federal judge rules. Among her complaints: turning pale in the harsh light; lack of Guerlains moisturizer; inability to look at herself for months (because glass mirrors are prohibited); and worrying about being hit on by lesbians (thus causing wrinkles). At least, she told the reporter, she has found God in jail and passes time reading the Bible.Unclear on the concept Zero tolerance claimed another victim, in Charlotte, N.C., in April, when Jaden Malone, 12, came to his bullied friends aid, was knocked down himself and repeatedly punched in the head by the bully, and pushed the boy off of him to avoid further damage but was himself suspended for three days by his charter school Invest Collegiate. A school official pointed out that the bully got five days, and besides, the policy against all physical violence is very clear. (After having Jaden treated for a concussion, his mother promptly withdrew him from the school.) Ms. Madi Barney, 20, courageously publicly reported her own rape accusation recently in Pr ovo, Ut ah, and as a result has been disciplined as a student at Brigham Young University for allegedly violating the schools honor code. (She is barred from withdrawing from courses or re-registering.) Whether the sex was consensual must be investigated by Provo police, but BYU officials said they had heard enough to charge Barney with the no-no of premarital sex. (Critics decried the advantage BYU thus gives rapists of BYU females since the women face the additional fear of university reprisals irrespective of the criminal case.)Latest religious messages Idahos law protecting fundamentalist faith healers regained prominence recently in the case of Mariah Walton, 20, who was born with a routinely repairable heart defect but who received only prayer and herbs because of her parents religious rejection of doctors. Waltons now-irreversible damage leaves her frail and dependent on portable oxygen, and she will likely need lung and heart transplants to survive. Idaho and five other states immunize parents from criminal prosecution if they reject medical care on the ground of religious teachings. Latest From Evangelicals: (1) Christian political activist David Barton told his WallBuilders radio audience recently that Disneys anthropomorphic characters (e.g., Bambi) are simply gateways to kids learning Babylonian pagan worship. (2) Brooklyn, N.Y., prophet Yakim Manasseh Jordan told followers recently that he has arranged with God to bring people back from the dead if they cheerfully offer a miracle favor cloud of gifts as low as $1,000. (3) James David Manning, chief pastor of the Atlah Worldwide Missionary Church in Harlem, in a recent online sermon, stepped up his usual anti-gay rhetoric, warning sodomites that God would soon send flames coming out of your butthole. (A gay and transgender support group is fundraising to buy Atlahs building and set up a shelter.)Police report The Tap Inn bar in Billings, Mont., released April 11 surveillance video of the armed robbery staged by two men and a woman (still on the lam), showing two liplocked customers at the bar, lost in affectionate embrace during the entire crime, seemingly oblivious of danger. The robbers, perhaps impressed by the couples passion, ignored them even while emptying the cash register just a few feet away. Andru Jolstad, 26, was arrested on April 16 and charged with using a pry bar to break into the cash boxes of four machines at Zaps Arcade in Mesa, Ariz. Following citizen tips, a cop arrived to find Jolstad on his knees alongside one machine with his arm still inside. His total take from the spree was $18, and hell likely be sent back to prison from an earlier charge.Yee-hah!(1) Transportation Security Administration announced on April 27 that its screeners had confiscated 73 guns from passengers carry-ons in just the previous seven days. (Sixty-eight were loaded, and 27 had a round in the chamber.) (2) Federal regulators were deliberating in April whether to stop Minnesotas Ideal Conceal from rolling out its two-shot, .380 caliber handgun disguised as a smartphone. Several police chiefs, and two U.S. senators, have expressed alarm. (3) Jeffrey Grubbs, 45, was charged with two felonies in March following a schools 4-H Club carpentry project at which he (lacking a hammer) pounded a thumbtack into wood with the butt of his loaded handgun. (He subsequently realized the danger and removed the bullets.)PerspectiveCalifornias forests host major marijuana-growing operations (legal and illegal), and though the product has its virtues, cannabis farming creates massive problems guzzling water (23 liters per day per plant state drought or not) and needing the protection of a dangerous rodenticide. A state wildlife official told NBC News in April that the cannabis sites use massive amounts of fertilizers, divert natural runoff waters, create toxic run-off waste and byproducts, remove large amounts of vegetation and trees, ... create ... unstable soils and kill or displace wildlife.

ESOPHAGEAL CANCER LINKED TO GUM DISEASECancer is not one disease. It is, instead, a group of diseases with a variety of dierent causes and treatments. As researchers delve into the many possible causative factors, they uncover information that may seem unlikely and surprising. One such discovery recently came to light when researchers found that a bacterium (Porphyromonas gingivalis) that contributes to gum disease was present in nearly two-thirds (61 percent) of the cancerous tissue samples taken from patients with esophageal cancer. is type of cancer begins in the tube that moves food from the throat into the stomach. It is dicult to diagnose in its early stages, and usually progresses rapidly. e hope is that treating gum disease may help prevent its occurrence. P.S. If it is proven that P. gingivalis actually causes esophageal cancer, a dental exam may become a screening tool for the disease. George M. Mantikas, DMD, LLC A Practice For Optimal Dental Fitness BEHIND THE WHEELAll new 2016 Clubman can there really be a biggest Mini?This is an oxymoron on wheels. How else can the biggest MINI ever be described? But aside from driving a contradiction, there is some genuine appeal behind the new Mini Cooper Clubman. The new 2016 car has swelled five inches in its wheelbase, grown a few inches wider, and added over a foot in overall length compared to its predecessor. That feels a bit funny from a company that has spent over a decade convincing us smaller is better. We could criticize them for trying to disguise this hypocrite with retro small car styling, but it is really hard to be upset at the best Mini around. The Clubman tries to retain its smaller siblings style while also trying to maximize space. The result is the Dachshund of the Mini family with the center section stretched into unfamiliar proportions. But this wiener dog is a true four-door that doesnt have to apologize to anyone getting in the back seat. Plus, it still retains the dual vertical rear doors (a hallmark of Countryman from the 1960s) offering a wide opening that swallows large cargo with ease. So the new Clubman combines the best attributes of a station wagon and a small cargo van without the stigma of either. All-wheel drive is even available, making it as versatile as a crossover without looking like soccer practice transport. Inside, the longer wheelbase offers much needed rear legroom and more width to add a middle seatbelt. It makes the Clubman much more accessible to small families and young urbanites who like to drive all their friends around town. These new accommodations still arent large enough for adults to enjoy a multi-state road trip, but there are going to be fewer complaints from the rear. Up front the extra width means the driver and front passenger feel like they have a genuine level of personal space that was not in the predecessor. It still retains all the cool retro-style toggle switches, but the overall execution feels like the designers spent extra thought on adding details. This includes a tartan pattern in rarely seen areas like the coin tray and within the center console as a secret reminder this car came from the British Isles. From behind the wheel it is easy to notice the sacrifice for the retro minicar styling. A smallish windshield was utilized to keep the new larger Clubman from looking too tall. It results in a feeling of tunnel vision. This problem aside, Mini has kept the driver in mind. They abandoned the center speedometer in the previous Clubman and have returned it in front of the driver. The wheel is still the same small diameter with grippy feel, and it isnt overloaded with buttons. Mini takes pride in building cars that can be fun at a moments notice. The go-kart handling offers a tight steering ratio thats fun to weave through urban traffic and helps easily maneuver parallel parking. The downside is one of the most sensitive steering cars on the highway. So it requires more driver attention above 60 mph than many others. Dont mistake that last statement for unstable at high speeds. The chassis feels extraordinarily secure in all conditions. But the idea of keeping steering lively at all times means the car maintains the same composure driving at 30 mph as it does at 80 mph. Speedy getaways were not a problem in our test car. We had the S model that upgrades our turbocharged motor from three cylinders to four, and our horsepower jumps from 134 to 189. It also changes the base price from $24,950 to $28,500. Those numbers seem like reasonable starting points, but remember that Mini also has an optional list that is as long as a cafeteria menu. So, going wild with dessert can easily create a car well above $30K. The new Mini Cooper Clubman is what many people are looking for whether they know it or not. It offers extended space that better provides for family and professional obligations without giving up the sporty driving experience. If you can live with the price, this might be an oxymoron on wheels, but far from a conflicting choice.

SanCap Cares Co-Chairs: Amanda Cross, Paula Bentinck-Smith and Sue Peltzman NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 12-18, 2016 NEWS A17Young author inspires students to read, write, follow their dreams SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe importance of language skills is woven through all of The Immokalee Foundations programs, from efforts such as Immokalee Readers, after-school tutoring for reading and writing, and essays required for acceptance into the Take Stock in Children scholarship program. A young visitor who spoke to Immokalee middle and high school students this spring was certainly on the same page. Kyle Prue is the author of The Sparks, the first book in a series of three fantasy novels. He wrote the book while in his senior year at Seacrest Country Day School and is taking a year off before going to college to attend book festivals and give presentations to students. I think the most important message is literacy and how its just absolutely necessary no matter what you want to do, he says. Its important in everything to communicate well. But when he speaks to students, he also wants to convey the importance of following ones passion. During the school visits, I talk about a guy named Alan Watts, who asks what youd do if money were no object. Its important to find that thing you love and pursue that. Finding a passion leads to a meaningful life. Discovering the thing you really love helps ground you and gives you a purpose. Its good for everyone to hear, too, how to recognize an opportunity and take advantage of it. Eighth-grader Cindy Jaimes was accepted into the Take Stock in Children scholarship program earlier this year. She participates in Junior Career Development and, at 14, isnt sure whether she wants to be a pediatrician or a psychologist. Kyles talk inspired her. He said he struggled to get through his elementary years, Cindy says. He didnt have time to read, and then he entered this reading competition to see how many books he could read, and he accomplished his goal. It helped me because I realized that anybody can have talents that are hidden one day youll discover them. Shes always enjoyed reading especially the Harry Potter series and anything to do with arts and entertainment. Like the other students in the audience when she heard Kyle, Cindy received a copy of The Sparks, which was published by Naples-based Barringer Publishing. Its really good, she says about the book. Kyle says he plotted out the first book, and the two to come, when he couldnt sleep one night. The night before, I had gone to dinner with my family and the idea stemmed from the car ride on the way there with my brother and sister, he says. They were bickering about something. And the three-sibling dynamic kind of inspired the three-family feud (of the trilogy). I always really liked family feud books. I was always disappointed that books didnt concentrate more on stories like that. So he wrote his own. Kyle also is an actor with Snow Entertainment and an aspiring stand-up comic who trains with Second City in Chicago. Those elements make for an entertaining one-hour presentation, apparently: When it was over, one of the middle school students asked when his class would have another great speaker like Kyle. Adults in the audience said the students were both amused and inspired. The young author says he was lucky that his parents read to him when he was a child, and he believes thats where his love of reading and writing began. He has seen statistics that bother him: A majority of economically disadvantaged children dont own any books. Thats horrifying, he says. How can kids improve their literacy if they dont own a single book? Thats why he gives a book to each student when he speaks to classes and also the reason behind the nonprofit he started, Sparking Literacy, which aims to put books into the hands of readers-to-be. Many children in TIF programs have learned English as a second language and often come from hard-working, lowincome families. For both reasons, inspirational and empowering programs like Kyles are valuable to the Immokalee youth. TIF provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences, and life skills development leading to economic independence.

But with the help of a group of Marco Islanders from Hideaway Beach Club, this family escaped the mildew-infested trailer where they stood on boards to take a shower and was launched into a new life and a new home. Other families are struggling to survive under similar conditions, in neighborhoods where drug sales happen outside their front door and in filthy conditions where they try to raise their families. Some face incredible hurdles from health woes to family crises. With the help of Habitat for Humanity of Collier County and partners such as Hideaway Beach Club, their lives are now better. They have invested in themselves and their community with a Habitat for Humanity interest-free mortgage. Habitat for Humanity of Collier County is proud to partner with the residents of Hideaway Beach Club to make homeownership possible for hard-working, deserving families in the community. With rents reaching the $1,300 per month level and affordable housing at a minimum for local working families, this partnership is critical. For the second year, Hideaways participation in the Community Contribution Tax Credit Program will make the American dream possible by helping to fund and build homes for two local families. This state-funded initiative encourages businesses that collect and remit state sales tax to partner with those who provide affordable housing Businesses commit to volunteer hours and to funding the construction materials for each home, providing a critical revenue stream as Habitat for Humanity struggles to address the escalating need in Collier County. Club member Ernie Stevens has led the effort on behalf of Hideaway to partner with Habitat for Humanity. Last week, the Hideaway supporters picked up hammers and paintbrushes to work on a new home. Currently, 25 Marco Island businesses employ 75 Habitat homeowners, making the island an important partner with Habitat for Humanity. Prior to purchasing their homes, these families struggled to find affordable, safe housing accessible to their work. During the last five years, each year eight families working on Marco have partnered with Habitat to make their dream of homeownership come true. Hideaway Beach Club recognizes the dilemma faced by service industry workers supporting Marco Island businesses, says Claire Babrowski, a retired executive who volunteers on Habitat projects. These workers support year-round and seasonal residents as well as tourism in this beautiful setting, but they struggle to find safe and decent housing. Applicant families undergo an exhaustive application process before being selected to partner with Habitat. After investing 500 hours of sweat equity, they purchase their homes with a no-interest loan held by Habitat. The hard work of the families, as well as the investment of partners such as those at Hideaway Beach Club, pays off. The new homeowners also take classes about home maintenance and financial management. We are so grateful for partners such as Hideaway Beach Club and their members who make this investment in the lives of their neighbors, says Lisa Lefkow, executive director of Habitat Collier.

HEALTHY LIVINGStigma still exists around mental illness, but efforts to break the silence bring hope BY DEENA BAXTERSpecial to Florida WeeklyMay is National Mental Health Month, but whos minding the store during the remaining 11 months of the year? Sadly, we dont need to look far: Recent federal data on surging suicide rates makes it clear we have lots more work to do to help ailing minds. The greatest obstacle is the stigma that prevents us from having an honest conversation about mental illness its underlying causes, effective programs and treatments independent of pharmaceutical and insurance industry influence, promising research and the responsibilities of patients, families, local, state and federal stakeholders. Speaking of stigma, how many of you remember the game called Cootie Bug? Stigma is a grownup version of having cooties: It feeds on silence. In the words of M.B. Dallocchio, Its the silence that persists when discussion and action should be taking place. The silence one imposes on another for speaking up on a taboo subject, branding them with a label until they are rendered mute or preferably unheard. Sixty years ago, stigma prevented patients and families from talking about cancer. Today, a cancer diagnosis brings together patients, families, the medical community and supporters who seek to heal and comfort. Compassion rules. On the other hand, mental illness is an invisible reality that one out of four people live with every day. Thankfully, the media is spotlighting the enormous human and financial toll of mental illness on patients, families, communities and society. This is helping to peel away the stigma and replace it with helpful mental health resources and programs coupled with compassion and hope. My family has experienced the stigma of mental illness. Stigma made it difficult to get our youngest adult son into treatment and to take responsibility for his mental health. He found the gift of life too burdensome and ultimately died by suicide death by bipolar mental illness. Today, our community has an array of mental health organizations working to help families like ours. Since our son died, Ive partnered with the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Collier County on the Surviving Suicide and Sudden Loss Project (writeonmymind. com) that builds on NAMIs mission: To improve the quality of life of persons affected by serious mental illness and their caregivers through support, education and advocacy. Heres a scenario that gives me hope: A young boy shows signs of mental distress. His parents contact NAMI-Collier and a Health Under Guided Systems navigator is assigned. The child, Blane, has a complete mental health evaluation. Through the years, he, his parents and his siblings find support in NAMIs Family-to-Family program. Blane takes responsibility for his bipolar disorder and develops helpful life skills. The familys faith community hosts a NAMI empathy training course so congregants can learn how to effectively communicate with Blane and his family and others in a similar situation. Blane forms friendships with others who are walking a similar path; they find strength in numbers. When he and his friends turn 18, they will be eligible to go to the Sarah Ann Adult Drop-in Center during the week where they find a safe place to socialize while their caregivers work or have some much-needed respite. At the community level, the family is comforted knowing first responders and law enforcement officers have gone through NAMIs Crisis Intervention Training course. CIT keeps our community safer and welcoming for those living with serious mental illness. All these NAMI programs and services are provided at no cost to the family and the community. A system of taboo and shame has been replaced by effective treatment, support, compassion and hope. As for Blane, he sees life as an amazing gift. We have the ability to make this scenario a reality. May we find the will to mend both bodies and minds. They are inseparable. Deena Baxter is a mental health advocate and author of Surviving Suicide: Searching for Normal with Heartache and Humor.

Call 643-1555 or visit for more information. BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickWhen I met with my accountant recently, he mentioned that his 14-year-old son really wanted a golden retriever. Problem is, my accountant and his wife dont especially want a dog, especially one that would be their responsibility when their son goes to college in four years. I wish there was some way we could have a dog just for the short term, he said. Usually, when parents who dont want a pet ask me about getting one for the kids, I tell them to hold firm: If parents, who have ultimate responsibility for the animal, arent interested, I think its best for them not to give in to the pleading. In this case, though, I had a suggestion. Why dont you look into raising a guide dog puppy? You get the pup when hes 8 weeks old, and he goes for formal training when hes 13 to 15 months old. That would give your son a taste of dog ownership, but you wouldnt be left holding the leash when he leaves home. (Visit for more information.) I dont know if theyll actually do it, but it got me thinking about other ways that pet-loving kids can play with, care for and train animals without necessarily bringing one home to a parent whos allergic or simply not interested at least not in a fulltime, lifelong commitment. The following options are some compromises that may meet the needs of kids and parents alike. Read to shelter pets. When kids read to animals, the activity provides socialization and human interaction for dogs and cats and improves childrens reading skills. Shelters that offer such programs include Animal Rescue League of Berks County, Penn sylv ania; Bitter Root Humane Association in Hamilton, Mont.; and Panhandle Animal Shelter in Ponderay, Idaho. Contact your local shelter, library or public school to see if a program is available in your area, or if theyd like to start one. Volunteer at a shelter or sanctuary. Depending on a childs age, he or she may be able to volunteer to help feed, groom or walk shelter pets. Parents may be required to participate as well to provide supervision. Even if they cant volunteer hands-on with animals at a shelter, kids can raise money with lemonade stands or bake sales or help with set-up and take-down at adoption events. Go to camp. At Animal Friends Canine Good Manners Camp in Pittsburgh, kids spend five days working with camp counselors to teach shelter dogs the basics of good behavior so theyll be more adoptable. Critter Camp at Helen Woodward Animal Center in San Diego offers daylong and weeklong programs that teach animal handling and socialization and let kids explore animal-related careers. Another program to check out is Friends for Life Camp through SPCA LA in Los Angeles. Kids who are interested in becoming veterinarians may want to attend vet camp. Among the veterinary schools that offer camps of up to a week are Auburn, Colorado State, Mississippi State, Ohio State, Purdue, Tufts, University of Georgia, University of Penn sylv ania and University of Tennessee at Knoxville. Camps are geared to children of different ages. Search camps for animal lovers or vet camp to find other options. Foster kittens. Shelters always need foster homes for kittens, especially during late spring and summer, which is known as kitten season. Apprentice with a professional or amateur show dog handler. Some owners are happy to have a junior show their dog, particularly when the dog has finished his championship but loves to be in the show ring, says Phyllis M. Potterfield of Charleston, W. Va. PET TALESPet versus parentParents say no to a pet? Here are six ways kids can still be involved with animalsReading to pets at a shelter is one way children can enjoy the company of animals even if they cant have one at home.


NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 12-18, 2016 NEWS A23 stephanieDAVIS THE DIVA DIARIESWhen shes hot, shes hotI have a friend in her mid-60s who shushes me whenever were out in public and I happen to mention menopause. Once when I asked her why, she whispered, It should only be talked about privately, if at all. So, sometimes I worry that if I bring up the M word, I might offend or embarrass. And yet, if Im sitting in a perfectly comfortable, air-conditioned restaurant with a bunch of girlfriends over 40 and I suddenly turn pink, start perspiring and begin fanning myself frantically with my dinner napkin, almost every woman at the table will exclaim, Oh, my God. Menopause. Its the worst! as they all start handing me their glasses of water. Ill usually dip my napkin into one and hold it to the back of my neck until the brutal hot flash passes. Ive learned that, for the most part, women are usually OK with discussing menopause. The only reason Im not a fan of bringing up my own menopause is because I fear it ages me and Im vain like that. But now that Im talking to my women friends about menopause, Im finding that age really isnt a factor. I know a woman who started menopause in her mid-30s and another who, at 56, is still getting regular periods and is showing no signs at all. My friend Asha went into surgical menopause at just 38 when she found out she was BRCA positive and elected to have a preventative hysterectomy. BRCA is a gene mutation thats associated with an increased chance of breast and/or ovarian cancer (Angelina Jolie made it famous when she started talking about her own BRCA positive test result). By the way, Asha is a talented writer with a funny, honest, informative blog that you can check out at brcapants.wordpress. com Meanwhile, I have another friend who has been post-menopausal for more than eight years and counting and STILL gets daily multiple hot flashes. As someone who is still relatively new to this, thats not encouraging at all. Look, the dryer skin, the slower metabolism, the moodiness I can take those symptoms; theyre annoying, but I can deal. Its the hot flashes that make me want to lock myself in a walk-in freezer and plunge my head into a bucket of ice. I can always tell when a woman is NOT experiencing menopause; there are telltale signs. If her hair is long and shes wearing it down so that it touches the back of her neck and her shoulders, then she is hot flash free. Also, if shes drinking red wine, because since this all started, Ive found that drinking red wine is like drinking burning lava its a guaranteed hot flash trigger (oh, how I miss my Malbec). Also, if shes wearing one of those preppy infinity scarves if you know what a hot flash feels like, you do not want ANYTHING touching your neck, not even pearls. I remember pre-menopause, I asked a girlfriend who was around 10 years older than me what a hot flash felt like. She looked me in the eye and said slowly, in a flat, monotone voice, It feels like youre on fire; only youre being burnt alive from the inside. I learned later from experience that she spoke the truth. When we have our occasional little cool fronts during the winter, menopause is more manageable, but this time of year and until October, when heat and humidity help trigger hot flashes, thats when I start thinking of moving to Canada (and not just because Donald Trump might win the presidency oh no, I just got another hot flash. Did I mention stress is also a hot flash hot butto n?). The air-conditioning is set at 68 at our house (my husband wraps himself in a throw blanket) and there are two ceiling fans in the living room. In the bedroom, theres a ceiling fan and a stand-up fan, both set on high. There are three cold packs of varying sizes in the freezer, and for the next several months, I will wear loose, airy caftans, wear my hair up and carry a hand fan in my purse. And Im not going to worry about the menopause age thing anymore, because Im still hot. It just comes in flashes now. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week

LICENSED & INSURED CALL FOR A FREE ESTIMATE. their money alone, he adds. Often, when I look at a husband and wifes IRAs, Ill see that after 20 years she has accrued substantially more capital than he has, and he was the one doing all the active management. One study by SigFig, an online portfolio manager, showed that over a 12-month period ending in early 2015, women investors beat men by a 12 percent average. Men were also 25 percent more likely to lose money in the market, the study reported. Many active investors brag about their latest wins, but just like gamblers, they dont talk about their losses, Mr. Chandik says. If you look at the tax return of a typical active investor and see how much money their investments made for them after taxes, you often find a story thats not so compelling. Several factors probably lure men into thinking that constant churning of the portfolio is the smart investing option, he says. For whatever reason, the same factors dont entice women to a similar degree. Among those factors are: Misunderstanding gains, losses A major reason many investors and men in particular fall in love with active investing is that they have a misguided notion about gain and loss, Mr. Chandik says. For example, he says, from 2009 to 2015, many people saw double-digit annual returns and came to regard that as the norm. They expect it to continue, but such growth is not sustainable. When weak or negative years occur, they need to resist the temptation to abandon a patient approach. Timing the market Some investors become convinced that the secret to good investing is all in the timing, or buying and selling a stock at just the right moment.Market timers might score big once in a while, but not repeatedly and not over time, Mr. Chandik says. There are too many factors involved, too many things you cant know or control. You not only have to buy a stock at the right time just before or after it hits bottom but you also have to sell it at the right time, dumping it while its still hot. Technology encourages bad habits One reason timing the market has become such a temptation is technology has made buying and selling quicker and easier than ever. Today, a client can pull up an app on his iPhone while hes on the phone with me, buy something and then turn around and sell it by the end of our conversation, Mr. Chandik says. The liquidity is crazy, and it leads to some very bad habits. While working with a skilled advisor can go a long way toward curbing these bad habits, that in and of itself isnt a cure, he stresses.Its essential that both the client and the advisor have clear expectations from the start, he says. Many people, for example, are under the impression that its the financial advisors job to beat the market. Not so. No advisor, at least no ethical one, can promise market-beating returns.Instead, he explains, the advisors role includes understanding a clients life goals, assessing risk factors and putting together a blueprint that addresses the clients needs. The advisor also acts as a support system. In times of stress or down markets, the advisor can say, Just hang tight. Be patient. Stick to the plan. Mark Chandik is president and chief investment officer of FDP Wealth Management in Orange County, Calif. He serves as chairman of the Professional Advisory Council for the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and speaks at industry meetings throughout the U.S. on topics such as advanced life insurance planning, multi-disciplinary practice and the role of the financial advisor.INVESTSFrom page 1 CHANDIK Awards & Recognition Kevin Steffanni, the owner and principal interior designer of Kevin Steffanni Design Group, was Miromar Design Centers Designer of Distinction for April.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. May the Five Forces Be With YouWe all want to invest in the strongest companies, but how do you identify them? Seek competitive advantages. Warren Buffett highlighted some of these in his 1993 letter to shareholders, discussing Coca-Cola and Gillette: The might of their brand names, the attributes of their products and the strength of their distribution systems give them an enormous competitive advantage, setting up a protective moat around their economic castles. The average company, in contrast, does battle daily without any such means of protection. Many analysts consider Harvard Business School professor Michael Porters famous Five Forces of competition when theyre looking for deep moats: (1) Threat of new entrants: An industrys existing players have a strong advantage if its very hard for new companies to enter. It would be very costly and complicated to enter the airplane-building industry, for example, and easier to enter the apparel industry. (2) Suppliers bargaining power: The fewer suppliers a company has for the goods, services and raw materials it needs, the more those suppliers can charge. Drugs still under patent protection, for example, are typically provided by one or few suppliers, giving them the power to charge high prices. (3) Customers bargaining power: If there are few buyers, they will wield more power. Companies selling weapons systems, for example, have mainly the U.S. military and other governments to sell to, while tire makers target a handful of huge automakers. (4) Threat of substitute products: For a long time, consumers of cable TV had few alternatives. Now, though, there are viable substitutes, such as streaming video. Many disruptive innovations cause grief to existing companies, ushering in new substitutes. Meanwhile, there are many available substitutes to a gas stations gas at other stations. (5) Competitive rivalry: Industries tend to be very competitive when there are many rival companies, the industry is slow-growing, there is little customer loyalty, products are commodities, and/or substitute products abound, among other factors. This can lead to lower profitability. These forces can help you assess how protected a companys business is and how sturdy an investment it might be. Economic AlternativesMy dumbest investment? I bought stock in Apple way back in 1983 for around $8 per share which was actually considered a high point by some, as the stock had recently surged. I sold it after a few years to pay off all my student loan debts. What a regrettable move! S.J.S., onlineThe Fool Responds: You obviously would have made a massive profit if youd hung on, but thats only clear with hindsight. Remember that Apple went through some tough years, written off by many. Its market share was long puny compared to that of other PC makers. It had lots of flops, too, such as the before-its-time Newton personal digital assistant, the Macintosh TV and the Apple Lisa, the first personal computer to offer a mouse and interactive graphics, but with a price tag of about $10,000 nearly $24,000 in todays dollars!Few people suspected that Apple would get past management shakeups and other problems, start creating and/or dominating whole new product categories, and become one of the most valuable companies on Earth. Think, too, of your debt. Hanging on to your stock would have given you possible gains, but possible losses, too, while paying off debt especially highinterest debt can free you to save and invest more effectively. You reaped a gain by not having to pay a lot of interest on that debt. Generic ProfitsIf youre looking for a growing stock that offers dividend income, take a closer look at Teva Pharmaceutical Industries (NYSE: TEVA). Teva is a hybrid drug developer, generating substantial revenue from both branded drugs and generic products. Branded drugs provide the juiciest profit margins, but they have finite periods of patent exclusivity. Once a drug loses its patent protection, generic makers tend to start offering less expensive substitutes. Conversely, generic drugs feature lower profit margins, but theres a strong stream of opportunities, as branded drugs keep coming off patent. Additionally, generic drug prescriptions are growing in the United States. More important, Teva is in the process of acquiring Allergans generic drug business, which sports more than 1,000 approved products, for more than $40 billion. Following completion of this deal, Teva will cement its spot as the worlds No. 1 generic drug developer and will have more power to negotiate with public and private payers. Even if Tevas profit margins take a hit due to increased generic sales, the company may well make up the difference in sheer volume.Recently down about 18 percent yearto-date and expected to grow its full-year earnings per share by a high single-digit percentage annually through 2020, Teva Pharmaceutical is well worth considering. It even offers patient believers a dividend recently yielding 2.5 percent. (The Motley Fool has recommended Teva.) I trace my roots back to 1875, when Conoco was launched as the Continental Oil and Transportation Company, and to the 1917 founding of a petroleum company in Oklahoma. 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. My assets recently included thousands of service stations, interest in 15 refineries, 86,000 miles of pipeline and massive chemicals processing capacity. I employ around 14,000 people and rake in more than $100 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: Phillips 66) Valuation Made SimplerQHow can you figure out a stocks fair value? T.N., Butler, Pennsylv aniaAA stocks fair, intrinsic value is not necessarily the same as its current price. Determining it isnt easy, and many skilled stock analysts will arrive at different numbers. They often employ discounted cash flow analysis, estimating future free cash flows and assigning them present values based on chosen discount rates. That may sound precise, but its still based on guesses.Individual investors often employ simpler approaches to valuation, such as comparing a companys price-toearnings (P/E) ratio to its growth rate. If the growth rate is much higher, the stock may be undervalued. You might alternatively compare the companys current P/E ratio with its historical P/E ratio range or average P/E, which you can find at sites such as If the stocks five-year average P/E ratio is 17 and its at 24 now, theres a good chance its overvalued.Remember, though, that P/E ratios will vary by industry. Automakers, for example, typically sport low ones, while less-capital-intensive businesses such as software companies often have higher P/Es.Dont rely on any one method alone.

The 11 executives from non-competing companies in the U.S. and Canada spent three days working together to help one another improve customer service, increase responsiveness and become the premier remodeling firm in each companys respective markets. A portion of the meeting was spent analyzing the operations of one member company, in this case InSite Builders of Bethesda, Md. To gather pertinent information, the remodelers interviewed InSite Builders staff, reviewed processes and analyzed performance in order to identify strengths and weaknesses. Next, they developed practical action plans to help InSite Builders continue to hone its operations. They were led in the process by Paul Winans of Remodelers Advantage. Based in Laurel, Md., the business improvement organization helps successful remodeling companies become even more organized, productive and efficient. When business owners like Mr. Ulrich of KGT Remodeling participate in a program like this, all of the members benefit from the vast collective experience of the group, says Victoria Downing, president of Remodelers Advantage, which started the Roundtable program in the 1990s.

Being able to smell laughter is an odd talent, but is also nothing to get worked up about if you happen to be the one person out of 2,000 who experience it. If youre an artist however, synesthesia can be a wonderful gift, particularly if you have an affinity for music and the ability to visualize it. Argentinean artist Ignacio Alperin, whose exhibition A Visual Jazz Affair is showing at The von Liebig Center through Friday, June 3, is so blessed: He sees music as he hears it. His work is often compared to that of Kandinsky, who he learned also experienced sound-tocolor synesthesia.

Hardcover, $24.95. Trade paperback $16.95.Billed the first Nathan Monsarrat Thriller, Choice of Enemies introduces Nathan working as an academic dean at Greylock College in western Massachusetts. Actually, the novel opens a couple of years earlier, with the narrator detailing the last chapter in Nathans career as a CIA deep cover operative. We see a confused tableau in which Nathan is rescued after many months of incarceration and torture in Africa at the hands of a Nigerian rebel group named FATA. His rescuer, who is also his CIA superior, is a man of many identities. One of those identities is as Felix Sanhedrin, a cruel egocentric with expensive tastes, a warped sense of fashion and no loyalties. Nathan had been caught up in the battle to control African oil, the goal of a consortium of American oil companies in league with the CIA. African national leaders, who may just as well be called African criminal gang bosses, have other ideas as do the rebels seeking to overthrow them. Nathan is still not done making the transition to his new bucolic life in Berkshire territory when Sanhedrin shows up with an assignment that has the additional benefit of allowing Nathan to settle scores and perhaps rescue a woman very dear to him. The assignment has to do with the transfer of a rare terracotta statue, but that mission soon leads to others, including an assassination that leaves Nathan rather gleeful. The lure of M.A. Richards book is its virtuoso game of high style and authentic details of espionage tradecraft. Clothes and gadgets make the man, whether we are observing Nathan Monsarrat or Felix Sanhedrin. Its hard to know what kind of audience they are dressing for, especially the zany Sanhedrin, who has at some point assumed a surname that is the Hebrew word for the high court of ancient Israel. (His surname for another persona, Seleucid, also alludes to the ancient Middle East.) The author has a penchant for Jewish references, including choosing a setting in Namibia that has the same name as a town in Israel Rosh Pinah. Mr. Richards even finds room for a minor character called the yeshiva bocher (an Orthodox Jewish schoolboy), now switching from Hebrew to Yiddish for his Jewish-toned running injoke. Threat and suspicion are everywhere in Nathans world, and he himself is the cause of it in worlds that he enters. Thus, suspense is everywhere, too. Mr. Richards is already a master at manipulating his readers and raising the suspense thermometer to higher and higher levels. Nathan Monsarrats stony deliberateness is part of the process. Will all of his careful planning produce its intended end result? Or will things go wrong? We get to watch Nathan select his arsenal of weapons, pack the perfect array of garments, choose the most secure way of traveling to his various destinations, find vantage points from which to check and recheck his scheme and locate other vantage points, and stay constantly alert to the possibility of being followed or led into a trap. Nathans experience leads him to halfexpect betrayal at any moment. The romance of the unfamiliar as another engaging element that Mr. Richards uses to advantage: places like Abuja and Port Harcourt in Nigeria, Cape Town and other sections of South Africa, and the aforementioned town in Namibia, Rosh Pinah (the name translates to something like cornerstone). These places, particularly Abuja, are filled with interesting sights and oddball characters, like the villain named Innocence and his influential, racketeering family. Are there beautiful women? Yes. Is there a bit of sex? Of course. Are there Russians up to no good in this novel? Couldnt do without them. Mr. Richards knows his genre obligations and works hard to satisfy them. Connoisseurship is a hallmark of Nathan Monsarrats personality and of Mr. Richards novel. Connoisseurs of exciting espionage thrillers are likely to find this series debut satisfying to their educated palates. About the authorM.A. Richards career as a U.S. State Department cultural attach included service in Baghdad, Jerusalem, Lagos, Moscow, Seoul, Tel Aviv and Washington, D.C.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 12-18, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYBefore Lena Horne, before Beyonce of course, and Diana Ross. She did it in the 0s. She was the first. The performer left the racism of 20th century America to sing and dance in Paris. Ms. Bakers exuberant, uninhibited dancing was something the French had never seen before. In Danse Sauvage she performed wearing nothing but a feather skirt; in La Folie du Jour she famously danced in a skirt made of 16 bananas strung together. Admirers showered her with diamonds and cars; its said she received approximately 1,500 marriage proposals. (She married four times.) Ernest Hemingway declared her The most sensational woman anybody ever saw. Or ever will. Josephine was known for her abandonment, to just be so free in her movement, says Mr. McKneely. Her story has not been told on the stage. I think the time is right for this show. Were capturing her story in a unique, original way, in an inventive way, he says, adding that the musical is not a revue. The concept of the show is: were in a Folies Bergere in 1945, and we flash through her mind to tell very specific stories of her life. Were using the big production numbers as storytelling devices. The musical looks back at her rise to fame, but also revolves around her days as the star of the Folies-Bergere, her affair with Swedish Crown Prince Gustav VI and her participation in the French Resistance during WWII. Because Ms. Baker was an entertainer, she could travel freely, without suspicion. She smuggled secret messages under her clothing and notes in invisible ink on her sheet music. She received the Medal of the Resistance with Rosette and a Legion of Honour medal for her efforts. Ms. Cox is the perfect woman for the role, Mr. McKneely says. I couldnt imagine anybody else, he says. Once we did a reading with her, we knew we had found our Josephine in Deborah. We knew this was our Josephine to bring to Broadway, and began developing it around her. Deborah Cox is an amazing singer. She also had previous Broadway experience, having performed the title role in Elton John and Tim Rices Aida, and Lucy in a revival of Jekyll & Hyde. Ms. Coxs been involved in the development of the musical for seven years. The world premiere at the Asolo is giving the opportunity to see the essence of Josephine, the show, the woman, in all her complexities, she says, describing the musical as a spectacle, a combination of Vegas, Mardi Gras and Gay Pride. It has to be a spectacle, something bigger and larger than life. Its the only way to do it, she says. Joey did the indescribable job of finding that fine line of telling a complex story, but keeping it entertaining, larger than life. Her personality just comes through in this show. Its so intensely overwhelming, the energy you have to put into this show to make it work. The creative team is impressive. Mr. Waissmans been involved with producing Broadway successes such as Grease, Torch Song Trilogy and Agnes of God. Writers Ellen Weston and Mark Hampton wrote the book and composer Steve Dorff and lyricist John Bettis wrote the score. Mr. McKneely was originally brought on to be the shows choreographer; he was then later asked to direct it. For Ms. Cox, Josephine is a rare opportunity to originate a role. Those roles dont happen very often, she says. Theres nothing like originating a role like the great women of Broadway did: Chita Rivera, Audra McDonald, Patti LuPone. Preparing to portray the loose-limbed, highly inventive dancer was a challenge. Ms. Cox had to take Pilates as well as a variety of classes in tap, tango, ballet and African dance. Working with Joey was like being in a master class and boot camp at the same time, she jokes. Thats whats required to make it look like its effortless onstage. Thats the part that has stressed me, but it made me trust myself, trust that my body can do those movements. This role has taught me a lot about myself. I learned I can push myself to the limit. When I get to what I think is the limit, the spirit and energy of Josephine kicks in, and I can take it that much further. After all, she says, the Europeans never saw anything like that before, this woman and her body and what she could do. She was having fun and enjoying her life. She looks like shes having a great time and just connects to the audience. She just had a spark.Prepping shows for BroadwayThe Asolo Rep is becoming known in theater circles as one of the few theaters where you can develop new musicals prior to Broadway. Its an incredible organization, says Mr. McKneely, pointing out that the Asolo has its own costume shop and set shop equivalent to those on Broadway. The shops are union, explains Asolo Producing Artistic Director Michael Donald Edwards. That puts us on the level of major theaters in the country, he says. If we build a set, it has the union stamp of approval, the same union that works on Broadway. It gives producers a level of reassurance that the work will be at a certain level. Our commitment, our artistic vision, our stewardship and our respect for the artist are also things they respond to. We have a great support system here, says Mr. McKneely. And we have Michaels incredible insight to fine-tune the story, as opposed to just finding a theater anywhere. And then theres the audience. Its a sophisticated New York audience, a lot of transplants here, retirees and snowbirds, says Mr. McKneely. These are the audiences that go see Broadway shows. Its important for us to get a real gauge from an audience reaction. The creative team listens to the audience every night and make adjustments based on reactions. For example, within 24 hours, during previews, one production number and two scenes were cut, says Mr. Edwards. Then theres the refining of all the technical moves, transitions, tempos of the songs are being adjusted and new orchestration will make it look and sound very different, he says. Thats why they come here, to get this work done. He calls it a creative crucible in which the work can be done the right way. Once the show opened on May 6, it was locked for the rest of the run, and no changes will be made. But all of the writers will be looking at the run with a view for what they want to change when it goes into rehearsal again, Mr. Edwards says. We have a wonderful audience, an amazingly appreciative audience. So many people move here from Chicago, New York. They love being part of something creative. Our theater is in a conversation with the audience, and they are very much enjoying that conversation. Josephine is a rare opportunity for audiences to see a Broadway show prior to its opening on Broadway. Some theater lovers attended a preview, and plan to see the show again later in its run, to see how its evolved. People are coming from all over Florida to see Josephine. (The Asolo marketing department estimates that more than 4,500 people from Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties attended the theater this season.) Mr. Edwards knows people coming from New York, Los Angeles and London to see the musical. Theyre interested in Josephine, theyre fans of Deborah Cox, he says. In 2010 audiences could see the musical Bonnie and Clyde at the Asolo before it went to Broadway in 2013 with the same two leads, Laura Osnes and Jeremy Jordan. And in 2007 A Tale of Two Cities, which Mr. Edwards directed, premiered at the Asolo before heading to Broadway. This is our fourth commercially enhanced production, says Mr. Edwards. Were developing something of a reputation where this work can be done. He gets proposals for new shows. The next one is Beatsville, which will have its world premiere next season, in May 2017. Its a musical comedy about beatniks in 1959 Greenwich Village, with be-bop inflected music. Seattles 5th Avenue Theatre is where Hairspray started, Mr. Edwards says. They sought us out. The creative team of Josephine has enabled the Asolo to produce an amazing event for our audience, to create something new, says Mr. Edwards. That is a wonderful thing in theater, to create something new. Josephine Baker, he says, is a great, iconic American figure who has never really gotten her due. She never got it in her lifetime. She is probably more beloved and appreciated around the world than she is here, which is one of the reasons that make the story so exciting to do. She was an exciting, glamorous, liberated, fascinating woman. In addition to performing and being part of the French Resistance during WWII, later in life Ms. Baker adopted 12 children from different ethnicities and religions, which she called her Rainbow Tribe. And she was involved in the Civil Rights Movement in the U.S. in the s. Its really important that her story be told, says Ms. Cox. Shes an unsung hero, who needs to be recognized for all her accomplishments. She came from nothing. Her story and her persona and her personality is huge, its big. (Even now,) she still captivates you. JOSEPHINEFrom page 1 Josephine world premiere>> When: through May 29>> Where: Asolo Repertory Theatre, 5555 N.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 12-18, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 which Mr. Alperin discovered as a child, served as inspiration for the current show. People always say there is something musical and rhythmic about the paintings; that there seems to be sound coming out of them, he says. It allows my brain to produce shapes and colors with music. His paintings certainly do evoke a certain musicality, particularly when viewed alongside the jazz piece he selected to accompany each piece. In Kind of Blue (and Ochre Too), for example, viewers can see the syncopation and meditative groove Miles Davis infuses into his cool jazz era recordings. But Mr. Alperin says he didnt simply transcribe onto canvas the shapes he saw when he listened to Kind of Blue. His painting, he says, is more like a general reference to the album and a feeling. It was a groundbreaking album, and if you look at the painting, you can see how the perspective is breaking up. Another painting, Whatever Lola Wants, features a chaotic space and broken perspective centered on a zaftig female figure. Not exactly the self-contained maneater described in Whatever Lola Wants, but rather a meditation on Lola come undone. This is stormy Lola, he says. Lola is wild. Visitors to the exhibit will also see six pieces that demonstrate the reverse painting technique, in which Mr. Alperin paints in backward order on the backside of plexiglass. Canvas paintings are layered in such a way that an artists first stroke lays the foundation of the work, whereas reverse painting requires that the first stroke be in the foreground and integral element of the composition. Paper Moon is one of the plexiglass paintings on display. Its much more restrictive, he says. I cannot change what I did first. It has to be thought out. The advantage, however, is seeing how the light creates a dimensionality not typically found on canvas when it can pass through the glass and layers of paint. The colors come alive, he says. All that third dimensionality comes up when the light bounces off it. Mr. Alperins works have been exhibited throughout the world, including London, New York, Miami, Melbourne, Zurich, Lisbon and in Argentina, where he is a professor of creativity and innovation at The Argentine National Catholic University in Buenos Aires. The artist grew up in Australia and says when his parents took him on an extended trip to Europe as a child, he came home painting after having been to practically every art museum on the continent. He was childhood friends with Nichaud Fitzgibbons, who became one of Australians premiere jazz musicians. At the time, however, her father, Smacka Fitzgibbons, was at the forefront of the music scene, and she knew all the musicians. I became hooked on jazz, and it has followed me all my life, Mr. Alperin says. I have high respect for the genre its Americas best gift to the world in the 20th century.

Summer Specials!Board the bus for Don PasqualeNaples Opera Society invites opera aficionados to board a Miami-bound bus for Florida Grand Operas production of Gateano Donizettis Don Pasquale on Saturday, May 14. In one of the pillars of Italian comic opera, it is the story of a reclusive old fool who has a penchant for cats and runs his pensione with only a chainsmoking chambermaid, a greasy cook and an ancient porter for company. Worried that his wealth will be squandered by his scheming nephew Ernesto, Don Pasquale determines to find himself a wife. When a distinctly feline young lady conveniently turns up, he is smitten. But having a wife is not quite as straightforward as he expected. Has Ernesto got the better of the old curmudgeon at last? Florida Grand Opera is staging the Scottish Opera production of the story, set in Rome at the cusp of the swinging 1960s the perfect setting for a colossal clash of the generations. The $140 round trip includes fine dining at a Coral Gables restaurant, pre-opera lecture and mezzanine seating for the show at the Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts. An optional rear orchestra seat is available for $165. Board the bus at any of three locations: 11:45 a.m. at the Ace Hardware Shopping Center in Cape Coral. 12:45 p.m. at Cypress Trace Shopping Center in south Fort Myers. 1:30 p.m. at Crossroads Shopping Center in Naples.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 12-18, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYQuestioning tradition at Gulfshore PlayhouseI dont have any questions, a man shouts defiantly toward the end of The Who & the What. And theres your problem, I thought to myself. A questioned faith can be a stronger one; an unquestioned faith has never been tested. That unquestioning man, Afzal (Rajesh Bose) is a widowed Pakistani Muslim living in current-day Atlanta with his two daughters. Hes very conservative and very, very controlling. He tries to keep his daughters on the straight and narrow, even making the elder break off a relationship with a man because hes not Muslim. Though they love him, the daughters, Zarina (Rasha Zamamiri) and Mahwish (Lipica Shah), chafe under his strictness and, just like the daughters in Fiddler on the Roof, find their own ways to get around his parental insistence on tradition. Mahwish wants her older sister to get married, so she, the younger, will then be free to marry as well. Their father goes to extreme and somewhat comical measures to find his elder daughter a good Muslim man. He finds Eli (Eric Clem), a white man who converted to Islam when he was 23. Eli doesnt see the religion as a series of rules and restrictions. But then, as Zarina points out to him, You didnt have to grow up as a woman inside it. And, she says later in this one-act play, I hate what the faith does to women, (how it) hides us, erases us. Shes writing a novel about the prophet Muhammad that many would find controversial or even blasphemous. Her book causes serious repercussions within her family and community. This play, by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar, is a kind of Muslim mash-up of Other Desert Cities and Fiddler on the Roof (without the music, of course). Afzal tells Eli, Were a conservative family, but he really doesnt know what his two very Americanized daughters are up to. The play presents us with four different attitudes toward Islam, or just religion in general: the convert (Eli), the conservative traditionalist (Afzal), the questioning one (Zarina) and the one who adheres to the letter of the law while looking for loopholes (Mahwish.) Zarina is probably the closest representation of the playwright, who has said hes a cultural Muslim, but not religious. He views the stories in the Bible and the Koran as myths. Zarina has an MFA in creative writing and believes in the power of words. And thats a topic at the heart of this play: how stories and books can change not only our minds, but our lives, opening us up to new ideas, new ways of looking at things. The set, by David Arsenault, reflects the importance of words. Its three full walls of red-hued books from floor to ceiling, with limited furniture in front: a table, a padded bench and a sink on a kitchen island that has bookshelves built into it. Whats most intriguing are the doorways that appear in the bookcases, suggesting, perhaps, that books are doors to other rooms, other worlds. However, the set does make deciphering the locales for some scenes a little confusing. It is also so fast-paced that some scenes do not seem fully developed; suddenly, we have leapfrogged forward a couple years, and once-single characters are now married. If you read the play, it comes off a lot more comedic than it plays on the Gulfshore Playhouse stage. I was surprised to discover that Id laughed more reading it than watching it. Director Emily N. Wells does not stress the humor in The Who & the What, choosing instead to emphasize the drama and conflict. Each actor has his or her moment in the play; I especially liked the strong-willed Zarina, and the way Mahwish grows up and matures over the five-year span of the play. The sisters share a special bond, and their scenes together are highly realistic and full of energy. Eli, too, presents a hopeful future. He believes that following his religion means serving people, and he appreciates a strong-willed woman. The father, who could be played as a silly, comedic figure, is an overbearing and manipulative control freak. He thinks he knows everything, and steamrolls over everyone. Yes, he loves his daughters, but he also wanted sons instead, and believes that men are superior. When his daughters marry, he urges one of the husbands to break his daughter and control her. He also tells him to impregnate her against her wishes. His character is so loud, so full of himself, so obnoxiously unlikeable, it feels as if he tilts the play off-kilter. Perhaps this is what the playwright intended. Or maybe this is just this directors interpretation. But the night I attended, an audience member asked at the talkback why the play is called a comedy, a justifiable question in light of what wed just seen. (The reply was that it was marketing decision, so people would come see the play.) There are some laughs, especially when the two sisters interact, but not so many that youd call this presentation of The Who & the What a comedy. Thankfully, theres not extreme physical violence against a woman in the play, as there is in Mr. Akhtars popular and prizewinning Disgraced. But the violence is of another kind: erasing a woman, not respecting her, not seeing her or treating her as an equal. When asked about her novel, Zarina says its about gender politics the relationship between men and women. This is what The Who & the What is about as well: how some men use religion as a means of controlling women, not allowing them to be who they are or to fulfill their potential. This is a play that raises more questions than it answers. How you feel about that depends upon your tolerance for questioning.

Fresh Seafood1-pound Maine Lobsters 2to 3-pound Maine Lobsters Cape Cod Littlenecks SUMMER KITCHEN HOURS CONTRACT BRIDGEIts all in the cardsBY STEVE BECKERThe suit-preference signal has many applications. In its classic form, it is used by a defender on lead to tell his partner which of two side suits to return after the lead has been ruffed. The mechanism is quite simple: If the leader prefers to have the lowerranking side suit returned, he leads his lowest card for partner to ruff; if he prefers the return of the higherranking side suit, he leads a high card for partner to ruff. This concept can be extended to a variety of situations that might arise during the play. Todays deal provides a typical case. South opens four spades in fourth seat, and West leads the ten of clubs. Declarer wins with dummys jack, leads the nine of spades and finesses. West takes his king but is faced with a dilemma. He would like to reach partners hand in order to obtain a club ruff, but he does not know whether to lead a heart or a diamond. Both leads appear to have an equal chance of success and an equal amount of risk. In the actual deal, if West leads a heart at trick three, declarer finishes with 11 tricks, while if West returns a diamond, the defense scores two diamonds, a spade and a club ruff for down one. However, thanks to the suit-preference signal, West does not have to operate in the dark. East, fully aware that his partners lead might be a singleton, can play the deuce of clubs at trick one to request a diamond return should West regain the lead. West, for his part, should be on the lookout for just such a signal from East at trick one.

O er Expires 5.31.16 FILM CAPSULESCaptain America: Civil War 1/2(Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson) Threatened with government supervision, the Avengers split allegiances between Team Captain America (Mr. Evans) and Team Iron Man (Mr. Downey Jr.). Its a legitimate dilemma the heroes face, the action is inspired and the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand in logical, smart ways. Rated PG-13 Green 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 (Mr. 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.City of Gold (Jonathan Gold, Roy Choi, David Chang) The story is unfocused in this documentary about Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold and his influence on Los Angeles. Not only that, but Mr. Golds personality isnt interesting enough to warrant following him for 90 minutes. Rated R.My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, Lainie Kazan) Toula (Ms. Vardalos) and Ian (Mr. Corbett) have trouble connecting while her parents (Ms. Kazan and Michael Constantine) realize their wedding was never official. Its a delight to see this crazy family back on the big screen, and just as funny as it was when the original was a box office hit in 2002. Rated PG-13.

LATEST FILMSThe Man Who Knew InfinityIs it worth $10? NoEarly in The Man Who Knew Infinity, a Cambridge professor writes a math equation on the board and then calls upon the non-note taking student Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel) to finish it. Not only does Ramanujan finish it, he also completes extra portions that werent on the board. The professor asks how he knew how to do it. I just do, Ramanujan replies. Ramanujan is from India, and comes from poverty. He also has a gift that most of the Cambridge mathematics fellows dont know what to do with, so a combination of jealousy and prejudice ensue. Jeremy Irons helps as Ramanujans mentor/advisor G.H. Hardy and adds an interesting twist: With Ramanujan clearly a genius prodigy with little formal training, it seems like a foregone conclusion that his work should be published. Hardy, however, raises an interesting point in that Ramanujan comes to his conclusions via instinct and happens to be right (just like Mozart could compose a symphony in his head, Hardy says). In reality, Ramanujan doesnt understand how or why the answer is correct. Therefore, Hardy requires Ramanujan to complete proofs to show how he gets his results, which naturally Ramanujan finds to be a waste of time. And yet it makes perfect sense for Hardy to require this, because doing so leaves nothing for the academic community to question. The story covers 1914-20, so World War I occurs in the background and more or less stays there. It never has much of an effect on Ramanujan, except for inconveniencing him as the Cambridge campus turns into a hospital. Similar to the relevance of the war to the story, writer/director Matt Browns film doesnt quite know how to handle Ramanujan. Hes not really rebellious, but he knows hes smarter than everyone else. Hes religious and devoted to his family in India, but never he sends for them to join him. In many ways hes a lost soul in search of a solution to his life, an odd irony given how instinctively he comes to solutions in other ways. We like Ramanujan and sympathize with the discrimination he suffers and his distance from home, but the fact remains that hes kind of a boring math geek and not interesting enough to be the subject of a movie. Its also true that The Man Who Knew Infinity is too much about partitions and prime numbers and doesnt get us invested enough in the people involved. In The Imitation Game, for example, Alan Turing was a social misfit in addition to creating the worlds first computer. In The Theory of Everything, Stephen Hawking became the most renowned physicist in the world while living with ALS. Ramanujan misses home, and only well into the film battles health issues. Thats it. Thats all the edge we get. Its not enough. The Man Who Knew Infinity tells the story of a man who deserves to be remembered by history, but not by a 108-minute movie. Read Ramanujans Wikipedia page and youll learn all you need to know about him. And that will only take 10 minutes. >> Per Wikipedia: Ramanujan completed 3,900 results throughout his life, most of which were later proven correct. a c w h r g dan

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 bestrated 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.

KOVEL: ANTIQUES Authentic medieval armor very rare, expensive BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELMedieval armor was one of the prized purchases by Americans taking the Grand Tour of Europe in Victorian days. And, clever metalsmiths made copies of the armor that were able to fool the average tourist, even some experts. When an important American art museum remodeled its gallery filled with armor donated in the 1980s, the pieces on exhibit were sent to be cleaned, refurnished and properly conserved. Many of the pieces were found to be 19th-century copies, not original armor from the 15th century. The earliest armor was made of chainmail, a flexible covering made of linked circles. By the 16th century plate armor was made, and it stayed popular until the 18th century. Some armor was used as late as World War I. The plate armor often was heavily decorated with etched designs, but it could be pierced. Plate armor was added to the head, chest, legs and finally almost the entire body. Authentic armor is very rare and expensive today, but occasionally an auction offers a reproduction of a suit of armor. Poulin Antiques and Auctions of Fairfield, Maine, sold a 69-inch high set with overall etching in March. It was probably made in the late 1800s or early 1900s. Estimated at $1,400 to $1,800, it sold for $2,115. Q: My father-in-law had an old potbellied stove in his construction companys workshop. The door is embossed A Kalamazoo, Direct to You. Wed like to know about how old it is. A: The Kalamazoo Stove Co. was in business in Kalamazoo, Michigan, from 1902 to 1952. The words A Kalamazoo, Direct to You were used because the manufacturer sold directly to customers. The name of the company became Kalamazoo Stove and Furnace Co. in 1937. The company made millions of stoves, mostly wood or coalburning. Q: Im interested in selling my Beswick figurine collection. It consists of 78 pieces, mostly horses with some Siamese cats, and a few others. If you would point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated. A: Beswick started making pottery in Staffordshire, England, in 1894. The pottery became John Beswick Ltd. in 1936. Figurines of animals, especially dogs and horses, were made. The company became part of Royal Doulton Tableware, Ltd. in 1969. Production ceased in 2002 and the John Beswick name and brand was bought by Dartington Crystal in 2004. Figurines dont sell as well as they used to. Many Beswick figurines are sold online. Q: I have a comic book with the title Charlie Chaplin in the Movies that is marked No. 316 and copyright 1917 by J. Keely by arrangement with Essanay Company, M.A. Donohue & Co., Chicago. Its in poor condition and I want to sell it to a restorer. A: A first edition of this comic book was offered for sale for $875. M.A. Donohue was the publisher of the comic book. Essanay produced films starring Charlie Chaplin beginning in 1914. Not many copies of this comic survived in excellent condition. Your copy in poor condition wont be worth very much. You might be able to find someone interested in it at a comic book show. Restorers do restoration work and get paid for it. They dont buy things to fix. Q: While driving in the countryside during the late 1970s, I came across a perfect Norman Rockwell scene a little girl with her lemonade stand and two utility workers standing there sipping their cups of lemonade. I wrote to Rockwell and described this as a perfect Norman Rockwell scene. He wrote back to thank me and said public interest in his work had waned. The letter is typed on his personal stationary and signed in ink. Im downsizing and would like to know the value of this letter. A: Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) became famous for his magazine covers, illustration and advertising art. Many of his paintings were later reproduced and sold as prints. The value of an autographed letter depends on the importance of the person who signed it and the rarity of his signature. A letter that is handwritten and hand signed is worth more than a typed letter with a handwritten signature. The content of the letter also affects value. Condition and authenticity are also important. Typewritten letters signed by Norman Rockwell sell for about $100, but since his paintings are going for higher and higher prices, perhaps the autographs will go up in value. The content of the letter is very interesting. Tip: Keep a mystery disaster box. If you find a piece of veneer, an old screw or even a porcelain rosebud, put it into the box until you are able to make the necessary repairs.

A lot of people get born into it, like Piero Antinori in Italy, whose family has been making wine for over 700 years, and who owns an impressive chunk of downtown Florence. The Mondavis are another good example. We might not be that familiar with family dynasties in other countries, but in France, the Guigals should certainly come to mind. In a recent interview, Phillipe Guigal told me a bit about his familys (fairly recent) history. But because they have their name on a hilltop in the Northern Rhne, and they produce wines at prices that run from great values to you gotta be kidding me, the wines, and the people who make them, deserve our attention. We are a relatively young company, says Phillipe. The story begins with his grandfather, Etienne Guigal, who founded the firm in 1945. Later, he handed the company over to his son Marcel, Phillipes father, who celebrated his 55th vintage last year. In the Northern Rhne, the major traditional red grape is Syrah, and pretty much only Syrah, from vineyards in Cte-Rtie, Saint Joseph, Hermitage and Crozes-Hermitage. The Guigals make whites from the heritage Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne grapes. Phillipe is adamant that the family makes wine only in this region. We feel that we could not control the quality in the way that we want if we tried to make wine in another region in France, let alone another country. At the age of 22, Phillipe took over as winemaker for the family business. That was almost 20 years ago, and he carries on what he calls his grandfathers simple vision: to make the highest quality wines possible, farming organically and without pesticides. And even though many of the Guigal single vineyard offerings, like La Turque, La Mouline and La Landonne (known in the wine world as The La-Las) will hit you for over $300 a bottle, many others, like those reviewed below, are available at extremely attractive prices. We are the birthplace of two of the great red grapes in the world: Syrah and Grenache, states Phillipe. These have been brought to other parts of France and the world, and we love many versions and interpretations, but truly the Rhne Valley is the home of these grapes. While Bordeaux has Cabernet and Merlot, and Burgundy has Pinot Noir, the Rhne Valley has its own unique traditional varietals that age beautifully, but can be enjoyed at a young age as well. Unlike many producers, the Guigals tend to hold their wines for quite a while before releasing them. Says Phillipe, When you have great material, time is the key for the elements to come together, and for complexity to develop. Our wines are drinking at an optimum level when they are released. That is one of the major reasons consumers come back to our wines again and again. Ill come back to these wines as long as youll let me E. Guigal Ctes du Rhne Blanc 2014 The Northern Rhne is most famous for its Syrah-based reds, and whites represent a mere 2 percent of all production. But the whites from this area have their own special attraction. This example is 65 percent Viognier, with touches of other traditional (though somewhat obscure) white varietals like Clairette and Bourboulenc. There are tropical notes of kiwi, honeysuckle and white pear, balanced by pronounced minerality. WW 90. A steal at around $10. E. Guigal Ctes du Rhne Ros 2014 Based on Grenache and Cinsault, this wine is very fruit forward for an Old World style, with flavors of light red fruits, like strawberry and raspberry. Extremely refreshing, so stock up for summer. WW 89. About $12. E. Guigal Cte Rtie Brune et Blonde This wine comes from the heart of the Northern Rhone, however space does not permit me to tell the whole story of why the area has such a strange name. If youre interested, write and ask me. This is a full-bore Syrah, enhanced with just a touch (4 percent) of Viognier. A very well-balanced wine with bold black fruit, a hint of characteristic black pepper, along with smoke, vanilla and caramel notes that come from the 36 months the wine spent in oak. A favorite. WW 94. $50 Ask the Wine Whisperer Q. Why do some red wines make my mouth feel all dry and puckered? Steve P., Fort MyersA. Red wines have a component called tannin, which comes from the skins, stems and seeds of the grapes when theyre crushed. Tannin is not a flavor; its a critical wine component that provides structure. But tannic young red wines and even older ones may make you feel (in the words of W.C. Fields) like the Russian army marched through your mouth in stocking feet. Tannins diminish and integrate into other flavor components over time, which is why we cellar the big reds. You can also minimize that puckery feeling by decanting the wine, pouring it through an aerator, or accompanying it with salty foods. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

CUISINE NEWSRodizio Grill improves on Brazilian steakhouse traditionWe thought we had cut ourselves off early enough to avoid overeating, but by the time our plates were empty we realized it was too late. A carnivorous coma was setting in. Wed have to rest before even contemplating dessert or waddling away from the table. Such is the delectable danger of Rodizio Grill, the new Coconut Point restaurant that re-creates the Brazilian churrascaria tradition of all-you-caneat grilled meats carved tableside by gauchos wielding 3-foot skewers and scary-looking knives. Its entirely possible to eat a weeks worth of protein at one sitting. Thats not advisable for a number of reasons, but also because you should dedicate a portion of your appetite to the remarkably expansive salad bar and Brazilian side dishes. This wasnt my first time at the rodizio rodeo, but never have I encountered a Brazilian steakhouse that pays as much attention to the vegetables as it does the meats. If some members of your party are observing Meatless Monday, they will not leave unsatisfied. Rodizio Grill opened about a month ago in the lakefront space formerly occupied by Pagellis Cucina, which closed last summer. Its a sprawling restaurant that seats 270 indoors, yet it manages to feel warm and comfortable, not cavernous. The wait staff appears to be vast and in constant motion to ensure that no patron is left with an empty plate at any time. That could be a contributing factor to gluttony if you dont know when to say when. When someone presents a swordful of juicy tri-tip at your table, its easy to think OK, one more sliver and then Im done. For adults, the smorgasbord costs $34.99 for dinner, $24.99 for brunch; or $19.99 for salad bar only at brunch, $24.99 at dinner. (Childrens meals are $7.99-$10.99, depending on age.) Dessert and drinks are not included. We started with a caiparinha ($7) and a passion fruit martini ($7). The former is a refreshing mix of fresh limejuice and cachaa, a liquor made from sugar cane. The latter was a tangy concoction of fruit juice and vodka. They arrived shortly after we returned from our first foray to the salad bar. At the salad bar, the offerings can change according to season and location, but the selections are bountiful: Israeli couscous with raisins, pineapple, red peppers and scallions; garbanzo beans with onions, tomatoes and olives; quinoa with red beans and corn; spicy chicken salad; BLT and other green salads; ceviche; potato salad; marinated quail eggs; hearts of palm; crab salad; tomato and fresh mozzarella salad; caramelized walnut farfalle salad. Hot dishes include collard greens and feijoada (meaty black bean stew), which are traditionally served together in Brazil, as well as beef stroganoff something you dont expect to see on a Brazilian menu. The variety will please anyone who truly loves veggies and grains in various combinations, with or without meat. Also included in the meal are side dishes served at the table: cheesy rolls made with yucca flour called pao de queijo, cinnamon-glazed sauted bananas and crispy fried polenta sticks. When youre ready for the cowboy brigade to start delivering grilled meats, you turn over a colored token that each table receives, from red to green. Be sure to request your desired degree of doneness if the server doesnt ask sometimes they do, sometimes they dont because they can often slice from a different portion of the slab of meat on their skewer. If theres a particular meat youre hungering for, they will bring it to your table. It can be difficult to keep track after a few rounds, but we sampled four cuts of beef, three pork presentations, ham and three chicken items including some exquisitely tender hearts. The tri-tip and a garlicky beef called bife com alho were favorites in the beef department. Baconwrapped chicken and pork chunks were table pleasers, too, as were sweet pork linguia sausages and pork loin dusted with Parmesan. There were seafood options, but we bypassed them. Aside from the occasional streak of gristle, the only real disappointment was the leg of lamb, which was overcooked and devoid of even the slightest hint of pink. Meats can be topped with a variety of sauces, too, including garlicky chimichurri, fresh salsa and fiery malagueta pepper sauce. Eventually, we gave in and turned up the red end of the token. When youre ready for dessert, you turn it on its side and a server brings a tray bearing chocolate mousse torte, cinnamon pastries and more. It took us a while, but we finally were able to share a wedge of creamy flan ($7.99) that was worth the indulgence. Youll get your moneys worth in meat at Rodizio Grill, thats for sure. But at the risk of defying gaucho tradition, you could more than easily wrangle your appetite into submission at the salad bar.

Kalea Bays spectacular clubhouse reaches construction milestoneTower reaches 14th floorKalea Bays clubhouse has been under construction since January and has reached a milestone as construction crews carefully raise the roof trusses in place. The progress on the 88,000-square-foot clubhouse can be seen from Vanderbilt Drive, as passersby slow down to take a look and marvel at the social and recreational centerpiece of the luxury highrise community. Its quite a sight, said Inga Wilson, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. When completed it will surely be the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It 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. Construction on the clubhouse is slated for completion in the summer of next year. At that time CID Design Group, a progressive, second-generation interior design company based in Naples, will begin to transform the building into an incredible centerpiece which will complement the communitys modern seaside, villa-style architecture, accented with the charm of old Florida. CID Design Group has in its possession reclaimed wood from the recent Naples Pier reconstruction, both original wood and from the renovation after the historic Hurricane Donna of 1960, stated Jenn Zella, Principal and Director of Design for the firm. We have plans to integrate the reclaimed wood as design elements within the clubhouse, which will give the historic pieces new lifeand a new purpose which will enjoyed by residents and their visitors for years to come. Approximately the same time construction is completed on the clubhouse, Kalea Bays first residents should also be moving into their new homes. Currently, construction crews are working on the 14th floor of the 22-story residential tower. 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 on Vanderbilt Drive, just north of Wiggins Pass Road in North Naples. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at Above: The 22-story tower at Kalea Bay will have 120 residences.

Pavered streetscapes and sidewalks within the community, including the fountains at each of Naples Squares roundabouts, have transformed existing city streets to create a cohesiveness that has united every element of downtown by connecting 5th Avenue South to Bayfront with access on 10th Street via 3rd Avenue South. Vehicular, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic can now flow from 10th Street to Bayfront on a redesigned segment of 3rd Avenue South between 10th and Goodlette-Frank Road within Naples Square. Naples Square has enhanced downtowns visual appeal. The landscape design along 3rd Avenue South created by Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design, Inc. has brought a park-like ambiance to Naples Square while merging the pavered roadways, entry water features, and the fountain roundabouts with Washingtonia and Medjool Date palm trees and a mix of plantings. Oak trees will create a canopy to provide shade and soften the building mass. Plantings that perform well in Naples climate are incorporated in the design, and include Clusia, Variegated Dwarf Schefflera, and Bougainvillea. Asian Jasmine is used in the pedestrian areas. Naples Squares intersections, crossings, and building entry features are identified by tall palms. Building corners adjacent to the roundabouts are softened by scattered height Washingtonia palms. Whether walking or riding a bike through Naples Square, Andreas design conveys a park-like feeling. The streetscapes are lined with numerous soaring palms interspersed with colorful flower beds, strips of green, and landscaped areas that separate the sidewalks and buildings. The fountains at each of the roundabouts provide a soothing level of white noise and have a cooling effect. The design evokes feelings of familiarity and a sense of place rarely found when walking through typical downtown corridors. Andrea has incorporated lighting into the design that contributes to the communitys dramatic after-dark tableau. Naples Squares residents, pedestrians, and bicyclists will enjoy the convenience of a separate commercial component that will front Goodlette-Frank Road to the east of Naples Squares residential buildings. A green space will separate the residential and commercial components. The separation will contribute to Naples Squares sense of place. Naples Squares landscape design will play a major role in furthering efforts to transform GoodletteFrank Road into a corridor lined with greenways and pathways for cyclists and pedestrians. A dedicated public access linear park easement will stretch along the eastern edge of the Naples Square site and front Goodlette-Frank Road. The linear park will reinforce the communitys lifestyle that is focused on the freedom to enjoy walking and bicycling in the heart of downtown. Kraghs mixture of Bermuda, British West Indies, and Coastal Contemporary architectural styles is bringing a timeless flavor to Naples Square. Kragh and MHK Architectural Project Manager Erik Young have created a design that maintains the integrity of the residential units view corridors. U-shaped residential buildings will be situated with their open ends facing one another. The juxtaposition of the buildings allowed Kragh to create amenity courtyards over each buildings parking level and to design residences with long-range internal courtyard views. The majority of Naples Squares residences have views of the communitys internal amenity courtyards, fountain features, and landscaped streetscapes designed by Andrea. His amenity deck landscape design incorporates green spaces, Asian Jasmine ground cover, raised-planters with date palms, and arbors with vine plantings to create a garden-like effect. Additional planters provide a colorful note of separation between the terraces of the garden level residences and the edges of the plaza. Construction of 73 Phase II residences is on schedule for completion in first quarter, 2017, a timeframe that will allow Phase II residents to enjoy their new homes during the 2017 season. With sales contracts worth over $51 million already processed, Phase II is over 75% sold. Nine floor plans, three of which are sold out, are included in the Phase II offering. The one and two story, two and three bedroom plus den floor plans are priced from the $600s. Ronto is accepting reservations for Phase III residences. Eight Phase III floor plans range from 1,460 to 3,238 square feet under air and are priced from $695,000. Three previously sold furnished Phase I model residences are available for guided tours with a sales associate. The Naples Square Sales Gallery at 100 South Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples is open daily. Visit o in d i n fe d la s r a Above: Naples Squares unique club room offers an ideal setting for socializing and includes a large counter-height bar table in a recycled glass material and a bar accent wall with a Mother of Pearl wall covering. Left: With 73 completed Phase I residences sold out, just 18 Phase II residences remaining, and five Phase III reservations already processed, the appeal of Naples Squares amenity-rich walkable lifestyle continues to attract homebuyers. Below: Pavered streetscapes and sidewalks within the community, including recently completed fountains at each of Naples Squares signature roundabouts, have transformed existing city streets to create a cohesiveness that has united downtown Naples. o t i A o in a w L s r e a S c P t h fo s e th th

Kitchens by Clay is a family-run cabinetry company where the client comes first, and the Cox family all works together to make sure the customer experience is successful. Developed over two decades, the firms design and construction knowledge is sharply focused on realistic solutions to design challenges. Luxe Livings Linda Donnelly posed some questions to Clay Cox. Q: What is your favorite part of the process when working with a new client? A: My favorite part of the process is developing a strong relationship with each and every client based on communication and trust. The best client experiences are when we understand each other right from the start and get along instantly. One client was so wonderful, for example, we hit it off the minute she walked into our showroom, and she was there every step of the way, contributing to the process because of our openness and ability to work together. A lot of times the true challenge is after the design stage is complete and we go to install the cabinetry. By that time the client can be a bit weary of the construction process itself. By default, Kitchens by Clays contribution takes place close to the end of that process, which can make our job difficult, even in the best of times. But by having built a solid foundation, we all remain cool, calm and collected, so we can get optimal results. Having communication up to and including this stage of construction can make this happen. Thats one of the many reasons why this part is my favorite of the whole process. I want to make sure at all times that the client knows what to expect and can connect with our team at all times. Q: What differentiates you from the other cabinetry companies in town? A: Well, there is one thing that we all have in common: We all have cabinets. Its what we do with them, how we integrate our design experience to each individual project and communication that make a difference. I think the most important differentiator for Kitchens by Clay, though, is the depth of care and information we require when entering into a client relationship. We care about every project and every client so much so that when there is a wrinkle after all, it is construction or a trouble spot, it can be difficult to sleep. Our greatest concern is the end result.

4 LUXE LIVING MAY 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYHaving a happy client and meeting their needs and desires is foremost on our minds. For 24 years, our system has been completely built around the client. And it works on every level. Q: What is one trend in the kitchen cabinetry business that you dont embrace? A: Online shopping for kitchens. I dont understand it, and I dont see how it can work well for the client, either. How is it possible to know via email how to price or design a kitchen? People may not understand this, but there is a myriad of factors other than just the price of cabinets and countertops that go into a new kitchen. Its so complicated that I often tell people I ask for X-ray vision every Christmas so as to help understand what I cant physically see in a remodel. People ask Kitchens by Clay to provide numbers for their job via Internet and hold us in competition with other companies in this same bidding manner. We did over 90 projects last year and not one of them could have been successful using an online-only communication method. There has to be a meet-and-greet. Q: Tell us about the big expansion planned for this summer. I hear youre doubling your Airport-Pulling Road showroom footprint. A: We are doubling our main showroom and we plan on that being up and running no later than September. The expansion is as much about Kitchens by Clays designers as it is about new and current displays. We have great designers, and it will be a great benefit having the additional space for our team to work with our clients. Our foot traffic is strong, and often well have two or three groups in the showroom, so the doubled space will allow us to have multiple consultations happening simultaneously. Plus, well have the luxury of showing several more fully equipped displays. Well also expand the cabinet jewelry which my wife, Kelly Cox, vice president and CFO, affectionately calls the hardware lines we represent section. The added space is a godsend, and were grateful and blessed to be able to provide even more satisfaction to the clients experiences with us.

Its an easy trap to fall into in golf course community living. You see your neighbors and your neighborhood, and most have the Naples-style dream home. And it becomes almost expected that youll build something somewhat Floridian. As they say, When in Naples But to go boldly in a completely novel direction, like this couple recently did, takes vision, creativity and an incredibly savvy design-build team. It was designed to look like an old farmhouse set in the French countryside and added on to by multiple generations, describes Joe Smallwood, president and CEO of BCB Homes who worked with the clients during the pre-construction process, helping them make educated selection choices. Mr. Smallwood first introduced them to the architects who LORI HAMILTON / COURTESY PHOTOS CountryA couple commissions a charming new country French home that looks centuries old A TRIP TO THE

The architectural lines and construction details are in keeping with the French country feel of the entire project. The home wa s designed to look and feel authentic, but it still has all the modern technologies.would be talented enough to achieve what would seem to be an Old World masterpiece. Rob Herscoe and Michael Hajjar of Herscoe Hajjar Architects helped the project take shape, crafting a storyboard approach for the design process and essentially creating a history for the home as if it had all begun with a small first structure, perhaps a chapel, and been added on to over the years. Subtle level changes highlight the various periods of construction, as if from different eras. The home reads as very approachable and welcoming, Mr. Herscoe says. The client was truly enjoyable to work with because they understood the intellectual discourse of how architecture can be developed and channeled to say exactly what you want to its viewer. In the spirit of great teamwork, the architects brought in Christopher OGuin of OGuin Decorative Finishes to assist with material, design, custom coloration and aging techniques and textures. The challenge was to use modern materials and methods to give the appearance of graceful decay without compromising the building envelope, Mr. OGuin explains. This was achieved through a true collaboration between the architect, the builder, the interior designer and the artisan. I felt like a kid with a new refrigerator box to color except the markers were stucco, concrete and lime washes, he says. Mr. Smallwood adds, The home was designed to look and feel authentic, but it still has all the modern technologies a lighting control system, wine cellar, roll-down screens so it functions like a brand new home. Most of these modern enhancements are camouflaged by the striking wood beams, lime plaster wall details, built-in shelving and a variety of wood flooring and finishes. The library is one of the most striking rooms in the home. The client has a love of reading and a true collection of books, not simply one for show or decoration; the room had to be a showcase for the expansive collection. And it is, complete with a limestone fireplace, heirloom oil paintings and walls that read very thick from any direction of approach. This was created as if it were once a free-standing structure and on all sides there could have been a stone rubble wall, Mr. Herscoe says. Ivy Scheinholz, currently of Design West, deftly handled the interior design, skillfully carrying the French country aesthetic throughout each room with comfortable, rustic elements and mixed textures. Aged iron mixed with rustic oak, and soft chenille and butt ery fabrics help transport the homeowner to another era and a faraway, more provincial culture, she says. She and Mr. OGuin collaborated on the custom color of the exterior sh utters, exposed beams and hand-textured wood finishes for the ceilings. We converted new wood to the patina of weathering and aging. This was achieved through careful scraping and wire brushing of the wood before the installation, then artfully applying natural lime paints to create the patina, Mr. OGuin explains. The kitchen also embodies a thoughtful mix of old and new. Antique spindleleg bar stools were upholstered with a soft contemporary fabric and finished with more current trending nail heads to illustrate that comfortable, casual vibe with a nod to Old World charm. A custom hood of large scale perfectly complements the dark iron light fixtures. I really enjoyed collaborating with the entire team, including the integral contribution of the homeowner, whose pure design aesthetic made this a very special project, Ms. Scheinholz says. The homeowner truly appreciated this teams commitment to achieving otherworldly results. In fact, she was able to incorporate antiques and art from her other homes with the newer pieces Ms. Scheinholz chose for the project. With a palette of white, cream and caramel, this cozy, inviting country home begs to be enjoyed by friends and family. It is a true testament to the talented visionaries involved in this project that, according to the homeowner, Every time we go away, and then return to this home, it always puts a smile on our faces. It is a happy home. She adds these telling words in regard to the teams commitment: Your handiwork prompted one passer by to lament that it was too bad our new house already looked so old and well-used. I couldnt think of a better compliment.

14 LUXE LIVING MAY 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLY BY LINDA DONNELLYlinda.donnelly@ oridaweekly.comThe rug experts at Hadinger Area Rug Gallery have spent their career amassing a vast inventory of the finest rugs from all over the world and proudly quantify that supply at more than 6,000 pieces from which to choose. The incredible selection is apparent the moment you walk into the 10,000-squarefoot showroom on Airport-Pulling Road, their location since 1983. (Hadinger Flooring is a family-run business that spans three generations.) We have extremely knowledgeable salespeople with more than 60 years of combined experience, says company matriarch Judy Hadinger. We also have a great designer referral program based on volume. The more the designer spends in our showroom, the larger the pricing incentive awarded. Many of Naples top interior designers and decorators turn to Hadinger to facilitate the process of flooring and rug selection with their clients. Designers know they can drop off their fabrics and have Hadinger make excellent selections for their customers. Some even pre-select two or three rugs for each room and ask Hadinger to set them up in the showroom for a presentation to their client. They also offer free home delivery and setup and have installed rugs in every high-end community in Naples. Customers come from as far south as Marco, up to Fort Myers, Cape Coral and as far north as Sarasota. The company even drop-ships rugs across the country. Hadinger salespeople pride themselves in offering excellent customer service and will work with the designers to make it a seamless experience for their clients. Laurie Walter of Cinnabar Design says, Susan and Judy Hadinger, and their team, are one of my most trustworthy go-to resources. I bring my clients there as the first stop to show them the broad selection, and it makes the process enjoyable and highly efficient. Personal service includes attention to each of our clients individual needs and budget requirements, concludes Ms. Walter. Committed to staying on top of the latest trends as well, their well-read blog covers topics such as the Viscose area rug. Viscose is a man-made silk which has a wonderful sheen, Susan Hadinger says. It truly adds a luxurious sense of elegance to a room and packs the same punch as a silk rug, but costs half the price. It is, however, a somewhat delicate fiber, and we always recommend a Guardsman protection plan with each purchase, she concludes. The Hadinger blog also informs customers how to dress up their living spaces, and even stay on top of the color trends and the latest inspiration from the industrys foremost designers and manufacturers. We have just returned from New York City, where we selected several pieces that are designed to complement the 2016 color palettes from the Pantone Color Institute, which is the color trend forecasting expert, explains Judy Hadinger. This is certainly THE place to start a rug search. One customer summed it up perfectly, If you cant find it there, it simply doesnt exist.

18 LUXE LIVING MAY 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYMAKEOVER BY LINDA DONNELLYlinda.donnelly@ oridaweekly.comHow does a designer take a 33-year-old condominium unit and transform it into a chic and seemingly brand new residence? Well, if its Wilfredo Emanuel from Clive Daniel Home, its done with creative vision, a trained eye for remodeling and a knowledge of todays upscale lines of fine furnishings and accessories. It all started when a Canadian couple purchased a three-bedroom, two-bath unit on the second floor at Sea Chase on Gulf Shore Drive on Vanderbilt Beach. For the makeover, the client had one stipulation: It had to be airy and light. As Mr. Emanuel describes, This view has the ocean as its horizon. Being only about 10 feet above sea level, the windows were definitely not maximizing the view. From a somewhat segregated floor plan, Mr. Emanuel designed a new, large common area for the kitchen, dining and living room spaces. The first step was working with the builder to determine what structural changes could be made to the unit. Extensive changes like these require permits and engineered plans to ensure the design can be substantiated. Mr. Emanuel took out walls, closets and a breakfast nook and added a feature wall, a complete chefs kitchen and new enlarged bathrooms. He even added tray ceiling details to give the illusion of a higher topline. All of the furnishings and accessories are from Clive Daniel Home, including some pieces customized to suit the needs and dimensions of this particular project. Any time we get to support a designer achieve his/her vision for a new space, we feel a tremendous sense of satisfaction, says Daniel Lubner, president and CEO of A seaside home goes from dated and sad to coastal and ecstatic Before Before Above: With a more transitional approach to the c lassic rattan, this Bernhardt outdoor seating arrangement with Sunbrella fabric is as functional and durable as it is elegant and stylish.

FLORIDA WEEKLY MAY 2016 LUXE LIVING 19MAKEOVER BeforeRemoving the built-in tub was a game-changer. In its place a large shower and his-andhers open closets all fit in the new master bath. An amber glass Schonbeck chandelier adds glamour, as do the remodeled vanities with mother-of-pearl handles and drawer pulls. Metallic bamboo Jeffrey Michaels wallpaper gives the space a newfound opulence. One of the most dramatic changes involved replacing the hallway closet doors with a feature wall of natural wood grain combined with three generous accent niches. A classic, yet contemporary design, the Amici stainless steel bench and a piece by a local artist flank the incredible Regina Andrew Aqua Diva light fixture. Custom kitchen cabinetry now spans the entire back wall of the unit. Three Swarovski crystal Schonbeck pendant lights hang above the island, and three Studio 5 bar stools, complete with Lucite legs and ostrich pearlized fabric, sit at the counter. Clive Daniel Home. Its quite gratifying to be along for the process. The decorative part came next, when it was time to implement a soft coastal palette of sand, white and cream combined with vibrant pops of turquoise and aqua. At the foundation is a crisp linen-textured Porcelanosa tile flooring throughout. Luxurious Cristallo countertops and backsplashes in ivory and cream in the kitchen and bathroom were all sourced from Naples-based United Materials Inc. For Mr. Emanuel, one of the big challenges was converting this threedecades-old space to maximize the flow by removing walls, changing ceilings and making all the windows more expansive. It was an opportunity to bring the outdoors in while creating a coastal oasis of sophistication and comfort. Mission accomplished.
