B1 Experience the Everglades in a whole new way BY CINDY PIERCEcpierce@ oridaweekly.comThe 10th annual Everglades Bike Ride sets out from the heart of Everglades City on Sunday morning, April 2, giving cyclists the option of pedaling 15or 62-mile smooth routes (on pavement) or a 27-mile bumpy route off-pavement and into the Fakahatchee Strand. No matter which route you ride, its a great way to experience what many consider the most unique part of Floridas landscape. Past participants have declared the SAG-supported ride one of the best bicycling events in the state. Organizers focus on safety, environmental education and stewardship for those who enjoy and promote hiking, walking and/or cycling as a means of traversing the Everglades. Proceeds from registration fees will benefit Friends of the River of Grass Greenway, Smallwoods Store Museum and Floridas state and national parks. The River of Grass Greenway is a nonmotorized transportation and recreation corridor proposed to connect Naples and Miami. Paralleling the historical corridor of the Tamiami Trail/U.S. 41, the 76.47-SEE RIDE, A29 Havana remains unspoiled and vibrant. But how long will it take before it becomes just a tourism destination? Havana ts a little after midnight on my last night in Havana. The streets eight stories below my tworoom Airbnb apartment overlooking Old Havana are quiet now. My mind is clear and the effects of the evenings half dozen mojitos and daiquiris quaffed at two of Ernest Hemingways favorite Havana haunts, El Floridita and La Bodeguita del Medio, wore off hours ago. In a few short hours Ill be back in the United States. I do not want to leave.SEE HAVANA, A10 I Story and Photos by Mark S. Krzos

MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA AND TARPON SPRINGS matterbrothersfurniture.com COMMENTARYSunshine Week, with clouds Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press First Amendment, United States ConstitutionThat damn First Amendment. It keeps getting in the way of shadowy government corruption. It keeps insisting on open public records no matter how you read it. Perhaps President Trump and Florida Gov. Rick Scott should consider privatizing corruption. A federal or state Department of Corruption could be highly efficient, especially if experienced private business owners run it: Wall Street bankers, health insurance executives, oil barons, used car dealers, casino operators, pimps and a loan shark or two. That should do it. Wouldnt corruption then be a lot less costly and more productive than corruption managed by plodding and unimaginative government bureaucrats? But let me put that question aside. For a quarter-century Ive thought about what the First means, and one thing remains clear: the First is hobbled when government officials try to hide their actions from citizens. But they do it consistently, again and again.We have 1,119 exemptions to revoke open-records law and open-meetings law in Florida, Barbara Petersen told me last week. Shes president of the scrupulously nonpartisan First Amendment Foundation, based in Tallahassee.This year the legislature is again chipping away by proposing new exemptions. I have 150 legislative bills on my tracking list now, and only three or four that attempt to do something good, like protect IT research at universities or personal health information. This week, for example, the legislature will hear a bill that exempts any information about applicants to jobs as university presidents, provosts or deans thats House Bill 351 sponsored by Rep. Bob Rommel (Dist. 106), a Naples Republican. They want to keep it secret until theres a list of finalists, Ms. Petersen explains. But frequently thats a list of one. And if that applies to university presidents does it also apply to city or county managers? Heres one thats even worse: Rep. Byron Donalds, another Naples Republican (Dist. 80), has proposed a law (HB 843) that would give local government leaders the right to meet two at a time out of the Sunshine out of the public eye to talk about public business. That means city council members, county commissioners, planning board members, members of school boards, hospital boards, and so on. Maybe theres something in the Naples water. Apparently its just fine with Rep. Donalds if Commissioner Joe meets Commissioner Jack and convinces him to give a big county contract to his pal, Bill, or permitted development rights in low-density rural zones to his pal, Bud. And its OK if Commissioner Jack then meets Commissioner Jane, and they all agree out of the Sunshine to hire Bill and green-light Bud with their majority vote on a five-member commission. And its peachy-keen with Rep. Donalds if nobody living in that county ever knows the difference: none of the 1.4 million citizens in Palm Beach County, or the 700,000 citizens in Lee, or the 350,000 in Collier or the 170,000 living in Charlotte. Rep. Donalds bill would undo 108 years of public records precedent in the Sunshine State. In 1909, Florida passed its first openrecords law, a simple little thing that would seem to have sufficed for all time: All state, county and municipal records shall at all times be open to a personal inspection of any citizen of Florida, and those in charge of such records shall not refuse this privilege to any citizen of Florida. Whoever they were, those legislators had read the First Amendment and taken it to heart. But that law failed to do the job corruption generally offering a bigger payday than openness. So 50 years ago, in 1967 under Republican Gov. Claude Kirk, the state passed the first Sunshine Law requiring that people be informed of meetings or communications between officials any officials and anyplace, including bars, boats, restaurants, rest rooms or official meeting halls. Such communications, legislators decided then, are public records. You might have thought that would get the job done, finally. But no. In 1975, The News-Press in Fort Myers sued the county administrator, Lavon Wisher, in a case called Wisher v. News-Press Publishing Co. and not just for fun. She had refused to turn over personnel records that could tell the public about the backgrounds of county employees. Lee Melsek became part of that case, which changed Florida law again. Now a retired investigative reporter, he spent 32 years at The News-Press using public records to put corrupt officials out of jobs or in jail, or to help victims of abuse from cops or at state hospitals, to name a few. With another reporter and backed up by his editors, he began pushing for the countys personnel records. A judge ruled that Lee County, and by extension every county in the state, had to turn over those records when any citizen sought them. The government created the Sunshine and public records law because, it said, the business of government is the publics business, Mr. Melsek once told me (I worked with him at The News-Press in the late 1990s). The public owns that government. Everything that government does should be open transparent. If youre a red-blooded First Amendment American, you might just want to shout AMEN! and carry on proudly after reading that, since it couldnt be more clear. But not if you love Sunshine in Florida. In that case you should start with this premise, now during Sunshine Week 2017: If you have Sunshine and we still do in the Sunshine State somebody will try to take it away from you, sooner or later. a o F S t T roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Their task is to craft the future year state budget. Our governor has weighed in with his own budget proposal. He would like to boost state funding to a new high, engineer a $618 million tax-cut for businesses and excise $1.1 billion in state spending, with hospitals taking most of the hit. It also would include squirreling away $5 billion in rainy day reserves should the state coffers unexpectedly require an infusion of cash. In assessing the tenor of the upcoming negotiations, Max Dixon for Politico Florida writes, The governors plan is laced with potential landmines that will make portions of it untenable for legislative leaders, who will push hard for their priorities. Thats not uncommon this early in the budget process, but without question, clear fault lines exist between the governor and both chambers of the Legislature. That is something of an understatement. The governor and the legislature are already at war over the governors most fervent funding priorities. They include $85 million to fund Enterprise Florida for business recruitment and $76 million to fund Visit Florida to boost the states tourism. The Legislature is not in the mood to rubber-stamp Scotts proposal. The lawmakers in the House first offered a bill to completely gut both agencies but may ultimately settle for something less draconian. Those who support Scotts funding request for the agencies are quick to come to their defense. They include the states most powerful, private sector stakeholders, and the special interests of agriculture, tourism and the states major utilities. The Florida Chamber of Commerce is at the head of the pack. It says its mission in Tallahassee is to lobby on behalf of the private sector for an annual competitiveness agenda, referred to as the Florida Business Agenda. The agenda is a set of policy priorities that will help grow private sector jobs, continue to create economic opportunity in Florida and diversify our economy. The chambers punchline? Free enterprise works, but it is never free. The chamber warns, without tax subsidies supporting job creation in the private sector and special interest perks to juice the free market, Floridas economy will suffer in the present and tank in the future in tough times. They might as easily have argued, For want of a nail the shoe was lost, for want of a shoe the horse was lost, for want of a horse the knight was lost, for want of a knight the battle was lost, for want of a battle the kingdom was lost. Woe to Florida for want of a nail. It is the never free part of the chambers declaration that is at the crux of the budget negotiation. Some lawmakers call tax expenditures for these purposes corporate welfare, a tax giveaway of benefit primarily to forprofit ventures that dont need the help. Those supporting the funding say it is warranted if Florida is to keep its competitive edge, invariably offering a rosy calculus of the taxpayers future return on investment, i.e., jobs, jobs, jobs. It is a classic, perennial tug-of-war. Anytime a perceived excess of tax dollars is in search of a purpose, there is no absence of special interests and lobbyists who want to give them one. They roundup legislative allies and become a phalanx of rainmakers, pounding the drums and chanting the job creation mantra, orchestrating the necessary powwows, to inspire a downpour of tax dollars. Dressed in the garb of the public interest and paychecks for people, they spin deal-serving rationalizations and cause/effect claims to get to yes. But alas, for all the successes paraded and promised returns on investment, the states failed hopes are buried in a boneyard filled with the evidence of misspent enthusiasm enough that healthy skepticism is warranted. This skepticism is in now in play in Tallahassee, although one might reasonably suspect it is the right perspective for the wrong reason. But that is just politics in a nutshell. Some lawmakers take the long view: Might a better plan be to invest in human capital and build a highly skilled labor force to attract good paying jobs? Or how about investing in the kind of 21stcentury infrastructure that attracts and stimulates world-class entrepreneurship? Sadly, It is hard argument to make. Up-selling a long-term plan to termlimited legislators doesnt work well. Most lawmakers are far more interested in the short-term gratification of a ribbon-cutting and photo-op than waiting out an adolescents graduation as an adult into the job market, or the information superhighway paving the way to high-paying jobs in Belle Glade. The shelf life of a politician expires long before patient capital invested on a 10-year plan comes to fruition. Alternatively, when the you-kno w-what hits the fan and all those promised, high-paying jobs fall short or fail to materialize at all, the lawmakers responsible are long gone from Dodge City and the robbers have taken the money and run.

In a significant escalation of the campus speech wars, protesters hooted down the conservative scholar in a lecture hall and then roughed up a Middlebury faculty member escorting him to a car. The Middlebury administration commendably tried to do the right thing and stand by Murrays right to be heard, but was overwhelmed by a yowling mob with all the manners and intellectual openness of a gang of British soccer hooligans. Sometime soon, we may yearn for the days when college students were merely childish and close-minded. If campus protests of speech begin to more routinely slide into violence, Middlebury will be remembered as a watershed. First, there was the target. Charles Murray is controversial mainly for his book The Bell Curve, about IQ but he is one of the most significant social scientists of our age. His latest book, which was to be the topic of his Middlebury talk, is Coming Apart, a best-selling account of the struggles of the white working class that illuminated some of the social forces behind the rise of Donald Trump. Second, there was the venue. No one has ever mistaken Middlebury, a small Vermont liberal arts college founded by Congregationalists, for Berkeley, and yet it has given us one of the most appalling episodes of anti-speech thuggery in recent memory. If it can happen at Middlebury, it can happen anywhere (or at least at Swarthmore or Bucknell). Finally, there was the violence. The students who brought in Charles Murray framed the evening as an invitation to argue, and in that spirit asked professor Allison Stanger, a Democrat in good standing, to serve as Murrays interlocutor. When chanting students commandeered the lecture hall, Stanger and Murray repaired to another room for a livestreamed discussion. Protesters found the room and pounded on the windows and pulled fire alarms. When Murray and Stanger headed for their getaway car, protesters shoved and grabbed Stanger, who was shaken up and later went to the hospital, and pounded on the car and tried to obstruct it. Political correctness has been a phenomenon on campuses since the 1980s, but now has become much more feral. The root of the phenomenon is the idea that unwelcome speech is tantamount to a physical threat against offended listeners. If this is true, it follows that dissenting speech needs to be shunned (in safe spaces) and attacked (in protests). Shutting down a speaker and literally running him off campus is, from this warped perspective, an entirely justifiable defensive action. Of course, speech doesnt threaten anyone. The appropriate response to an erroneous argument is counterargument. And the free exchange of ideas always allows for the possibility that someone will actually learn something. If campuses arent to sink further into their current miasma of illiberalism, administers will have to actively fight the tide of suppression. Its not enough to say the right things about free speech; they have to punish thuggish student agitators. Otherwise, college campuses may become increasingly unsafe spaces for anyone departing from a coercive orthodoxy.

Jessie seems to sense that the family needs less stressAnybody else feel the pressure? Spring has sprung and with the early arrival of blooms in the planter comes the crush of everythinghappeningatonceandneedingattentionnow that only residents of a seasonal destination can feel. The holidays have nothing on the volume of things on our to-do lists during tourist season (or, thanks to lines of cars and people everywhere, on the time it takes to accomplish even the most mundane of those things). December at least holds the promise of enforced time off to bathe in Christmas sparkle, whereas right now I just want to lie down and take a long winters nap until Easter is over. Along with the fact that traffic should start to lighten soon, theres another bright spot at our house these days: Our dumb dog Jessie has slowed her roll. Whereas two weeks ago she still required frequent visits to daycare to expel extra energy, now she seems to be happy napping at my side for most of the day while I work. This turn of events is weird and sudden, but much appreciated. Jessie has stopped destroying valuables and now sticks to the worthless knick-knacks the kids bring in the house. She can have them. The fruitless barking out the windows has stopped, and she seems content with her morning and evening walks. Is she growing up or becoming resigned to her fate? Through the mania of her first year, people told us she would calm down after her birthday, and miraculously, she has. It kind of worries me. The truth is that the last few weeks weve been unable to take her to daycare because we cant find the time in our afternoon schedules to pick her up. Her daily rollerblade runs with James his trusty method of exhausting her at the end of the day are on hiatus because he hasnt found the time yet to replace the wheels she wore out. Even so, visitors can now enter our house in safety without a manic, 40-pound, liver-and-white furred missile launching itself at their waist in greeting. Is Jessie actually becoming a good girl? She shows no signs of depression. She still greets us enthusiastically as we wake, with unsuppressed tail wagging and a genuine doggy smile, as if she cant believe that she woke up and still belongs to us (a questionable fate until recently). As I sit at my desk, I still periodically feel two brown, almost bovine eyes boring into my skull until I give her a thorough neck scratch. The difference is in the details. For example, no one has to bribe or chase her into her crate anymore. In fact, she napped inside it the other day and I forgot to lock it when I left. To my surprise, she was exactly where I left her two hours later, and not a single destroyed or even disturbed item was to be found in the house. For her morning greeting, a full-body snuggle suffices rather than an unauthorized wrestling match as we rise from the sheets. If shes not depressed, growth and maturity become Jessie and none too soon.As I write this, shes at my side basking in the sun at 8 a.m. Two weeks ago, she would have been terrorizing the cats, counter-surfing for breakfast remains, patrolling the kids rooms for a beloved items to destroy and barking out the window at the neighbor dogs that rise later than 5 a.m. Today, however, if all goes to plan she will occasionally lift her paws to my knees and wag her tail to alert me to the necessity of a potty break. I could not be more grateful for her recent transformation, and as long as she continues to show signs shes content, I shall remain so as well. It took a year, but Lindsey Nesmith might be turning into a dog person.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 16-22, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Would the world be in the mess it is if we were loyal to love and not to countries? Graham GreeneFive days ago, my wife, Janet, and I boarded a $135 round-trip, 8 a.m. flight from Fort Lauderdale to Jose Marti International Airport, Cubas busiest airport, some 20 or so miles outside of Havana. Forty-five minutes later, the nearly full JetBlue airliner touched down. The purpose of our trip? To see Havana as it is now, as it was when my father first fell in love with city back in the early 1950s and before an influx of foreign investment turns it into just another tourist destination for Americans to escape the cold grip of winter. After an hour waiting for our bags and making our way through customs, we exchange $700 just outside the terminal and get back a little more than $600 CUC (Cuban pesos), thinking that would be plenty for five days. It wasnt. In our taxi and headed toward Havana, it doesnt take long to realize Cuba is not like other Caribbean nations. There are no shiny billboards with scantily-clad women shimmering in the hottest nightclub, no billboards announcing the latest and greatest beach resort or casino, no malls, no fast-food franchises, no pastel-wearing punks revving the engines of their convertible Italian sport cars. But there is Fidel. And Che. And the signs of their decaying dreams are everywhere: paint-chipped pro-revolution propaganda billboards; abandoned and weed-covered Soviet-style apartment buildings; donkey-drawn carts hauling produce to the populace and, of course, the cornucopia of classic American automobiles sputtering and spewing clouds of noxious, thick, black smoke. Then, all of a sudden, youre in Havana. The streets are filled with people. Children are on their way to school. Some are waiting for the orderly traffic to clear. Many are waiting for a space to stand on overcrowded buses. Others appear to be just waiting. People like Noel Merbille, 32. Sitting in the caf La Lluvia de Oro, not far from Old Havanas Parque Cervantes, Mr. Merbille is full of hope. Cuba is going to change a lot because of all the Americans coming in, he says optimistically. Despite the Obama administration easing some travel restrictions that had been in place since President John F. Kennedy announced an economic embargo 55 years ago, most Americans arent officially allowed to visit Cuba. Official visits are permitted for 12 categories including family visits, official government business, professional research, journalistic, educational, religious or humanitarian activities. Licensed Florida tour operators such as author Randy Wayne Whites Doc Fords Cuba Expeditions, Chef Douglas HAVANAFrom page 1I wanted to get here before it started looking like Miami Beach. The people have been charming and theyre happy to have Americans coming here and spending their money here. Linda Lam, a resident of Boca RatonA view of Old Havana from an Airbnb in Havana's Centro district. Do bring at least $100 a day per person for the entire length of your stay. Finding places that accept credit cards is difficult and finding bank machines that accept U.S. bank cards is even more difficult. Dont drink the water! Drink only bottled water and use that bottled water to brush your teeth. But dont worry about drinking that daiquiri or mojito from local bars and restaurants. Their ice is filtered and safe. Do bring Immodium, aspirin and other medications. You may not be able to get what you need if you get sick. Dont listen to Cuban taxi drivers or people on the street telling you about some better restaurant, better bar or discounted Cuban cigars. Theyre likely being paid by the restaurant or selling you knock-off cigars. Do engage with the locals. Cubans are friendly, love Americans and want to talk politics, technology and more. Dont expect to be able to share all your photos until you get home. Wi-Fi is rare and extremely slow. Do take a 1950s-era U.S.-made classic car taxi. Theyre more affordable than the modern taxis. Dont get ripped off on money exchange or change from purchases. There are two currencies in Cuba the CUC and the CUP. The CUC is the Cuban peso and is about equal to one U.S. dollar. One CUC is equal to about 24 CUPs. Do bring comfortable walking shoes and leave the high heels at home. Sore feet from uncomfortable shoes or twisting an ankle on uneven, broken or cobblestone streets is no fun. Dont bring more than $100 in cigars back to the U.S. Do negotiate cab fares. If you take a classic s-style cab, ask how much to a given location before agreeing to the ride. No matter where you are in Havana, cab rides should never be more than $12 CUC. Dont be afraid to be out after dark. Cuba is one of the safest countries anywhere in the western hemisphere. Getting thereYou can book your trip through tour operator packages like Doc Fords Cuba Expeditions, Drod Culinary Adventures or many others or fly there on your own. JetBlue now offers direct flights from Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and New Yorks JFK international airports. Prior to take-off youll be required to possess a visa, which can be purchased at the airport terminal for $50. Youll also be required to state the purpose of your trip. Travelers must meet one of 12 requirements for legal travel to Cuba. For more information on these requirements, see https://cu.usembassy.gov/u-scitizen-services/local-resources-of-u-scitizens/traveling-to-cuba/ JANET C.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 16-22, 2017 NEWS A11 SEE HAVANA, A12 Rodriguezs Drod Culinary Adventures and others fulfill the requirements of one of the categories. Many of the Americans we encountered said their real reason for visiting Cuba was to see it before it changes and appeared unfazed by Congresss failure to fully lift the embargo. While we checked off journalistic activities, we also did a small part in helping the Cuban people by buying milk for people such as Mr. Merbille and his family. Mr. Merbille, like many Cubans, knows the issues well. When Obama was president it seemed like finally America was helping the Cuban people, he said, taking a long sip from his mojito. Trump said hes going to continue that. Other Cubans arent so sure. Lazaro Martinez, a tour guide in Havanas Chinatown, said there have been signs of progress between the two nations before, but it eventually fizzled out. The feeling is that the U.S.A. is trying to stop progress, he said while cooling off with a drink at Centro Havanas El Patio de Areito. Cuba needs to progress and wants to open its heart to the world. Mr. Martinez said both the governments of the United States and Cuba need to get past their issues for the sake of the long-suffering Cuban people. If nothing happens, the people will stay poor. In Havana, milk is scarce and rice is rationed. Salaries are still low, but 10 years ago, Cubans werent allowed to even talk to tourists, Mr. Merbille said. The Cubans who call the Havana districts of Centro and Vedado home dont have much, but they manage. Some sell fruit on the side of the road, others sell scratch-off Wi-Fi cards designated for use in one of the local parks. Only a few seem to beg for free handouts. Tom Fleming, a social worker from Hackensack, N.J., said hes drawn to places in flux. I came to Cuba because I wanted to get a feel for whats going on here, he said. I wanted to see the architecture, the people, the art, the culture. Whats really surprised me is the resiliency of the people and how they use creativity and ingenuity to cope with life here. Places to eat and drink In HavanaNoel Merbille and his girlfriend say a lot has changed over the past few years and that 10 years ago they weren't even allowed to speak to tourists. Eating and drinking can be incredibly affordable although not always satisfying in and around Havana. State-run restaurants offer pastries, pizza, Cuban sandwiches (usually nonpressed and without pickles and quality mustard) for less than $3. Most of this fare rarely rises above average. Cuban coffee, Cuban beers such as Bucanero and Cristal, mojitos and daiquiris are also within the $1-$5 range. Recently, the government has allowed citizens to open their homes and serve home-cooked recipes in restaurants called paladares. Inside these paladares, diners will feast on meals whose recipes had been passed down from generation to generation. These spots now not only rival the best Cuban restaurants in Miami and Tampa, but often surpass them Fabrica de Arte Cubano This is one nightspot you do not want to miss. Built in an old oil factory, the Fabrica de Arte Cubano is one of the coolest and hippest places in all of Cuba. Its part modern art gallery and part nightclub. Havanas hippest crowd flocks to this place several nights a week to drink, eat tapas, dance and view some of the edgiest modern art anywhere in the Caribbean. La Floridita A hangout of Ernest Hemingway and billed as the cradle of the daiquiri, this bar/restaurant at the west end of Obispo is jammed with tourists, many eager to get a picture of the bronze Papa standing at one end of the bar. Get there early if you want a seat. La Bodeguita del Medio One of the most popular bars in all Havana and another one of Hemingways hangouts. Over the bar, youll see a large scribbled note: My daiquiri in La Floridita, My mojito in La Bodeguita. OReillys You might hear the coffee grinder from a block away and it never seems to stop. A good relaxing place to enjoy a light breakfast, a great cup of coffee and plan your day. OReilly 304 Mixology in Old Havana? Passion fruit mojitos. Mango daiquiris and a whole lot more. This modern tapas bar with one foot in the present and another in Havanas future gets packed at night. Make a reservation. Mama Ines This hard-to-find Creole spot is located on a small side street just a few hundred yards from where cruise ships dock. The black beans, rice and roast pork are sensational. Nao Bar Paladar Located at the foot of Obispo, Nao Bar specializes in seafood, but if oxtail or ropa vieja is on the menu, get it. You wont be disappointed. Otramanera Located on a side street and just down the road from Casa de la Musica in the Miramar district, this outstanding restaurant goes beyond traditional Cuban fare. Cuban fish curry, fresh red snapper served on a bed of smoked red beans and ultra modern dcor, excellent service made this spot one of my favorites in all of Havana. Paladar Los Amigos A popular place for locals and located not far from the U.S. embassy, this nine-table restaurant has been called the best paladar in all of Havana. A familiar celebrity face Anthony Bourdain is on the wall. Order what he had, ropa vieja and the masa, and youll be so completely satisfied that you may end up back there the next night. Make a reservation. This nightclub in Havanas Miramar district is a celebration of modern art complete with DJs spinning music by hip-hop artist The Weeknd, dance, tapas, drinks and more. The original Sloppy Joes opened in Havana in 1917. It was here that celebrities such as Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner enjoyed the rope vieja sandwich. The landmark closed in 1960 and reopened in 2013. Street art and graffiti in Chinatown.
A12 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 16-22, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYLife in Havana can differ wildly from one street to the next, but no matter where you are, you always feel safe (unlike many third world countries). People have been really friendly and theyre super proud of their country, Molly Leibowitz, a San Francisco resident said between sips of her daiquiri at the famous La Floridita. But Havana is about what I expected. It has a ton of charm and a lot of poverty. I do feel like some of the poverty is swept under the rug a bit. Linda Lam, a resident of Boca Raton, came to Havana as part of a tour, but her reason for choosing Cuba was because it had been off-limits for so long. I wanted to get here before it started looking like Miami Beach, Ms. Lam said. The people have been charming and theyre happy to have Americans coming here and spending their money here. At The Hotel Nacional, where Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner and Lucky Luciano once stayed, tourists from Asia, Europe and the Americas watch the sunset over Havanas historic drive, El Malecon. A few hours later, they are cheering on the worldrenown Grammy Award-winning Buena Vista Social Club. Some even get up and dance. Similar scenes play out all over the city. Along the Old Havana streets of OReilly and Obispo, storefronts have fresh coats of paint, restaurants are packed and live salsa music spills out into the street. Soon locals are dancing with tourists, heads begin to turn and smiles sweep across hundreds of different faces. Its a typical early afternoon in Habana Vieja. Not far from the Plaza de Armas, open-air hotel lobbies offer sprawling bars and a piano player sings like a character right out of the movie Casablanca. This was my fathers Cuba when he was a boy. It wasnt the real Cuba then and it isnt the real Cuba now. He told me stories of the casinos his father, my grandfather, spent his time and money in. He told me about the hotel parties he saw the beautiful women in evening gowns and men in white tuxedos. He never saw the struggle outside the city back in the 1950s and he never had the chance to return to see Havanas current crumble and decay. Pablo Morales Marchan, a freelance journalist in Havana, points at the people walking down Obispo. What youre looking at is a tourists version of Cuba, he said. Very little has changed outside of Havana. People are living in misery in extreme poverty. Yes, there is more freedom, but not enough.

If Castro would open up Cuba and provide greater freedoms, he would be celebrated with statues like Jose Marti, the apostle of Cuban independence from Spain, Mr. Marchan said. Cuba is teetering between times the Cold War Cuba, isolated from the world and without the freedoms afforded to millions, and the Cuba where freedom and prosperity are within reach. Strolling along Obispo its easy to wonder how long it will take before the tacky souvenir shops selling cheap trinkets and Che T-shirts and staterun restaurants offering the most basic and unimaginative breakfasts for two bucks a pop give way to Banana Republic, Starbucks and McDonalds. How long it will take before Havana, an unspoiled city full of life, music, culture and history, looks just like every other port in the Caribbean? For Cubans, it starts with the U.S. lifting of the embargo and the influx of foreign investment and tourism. What happens after that will be up to them to decide. No one else. Mark S.

Former Immokalee student is in the drivers seat at Enterprise SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYJunior Destine laughs now when reminded of the Instagram profile he created while in his teens. He was just a kid of Haitian heritage trying to make it in America, he wrote then. A few years later, his Blogspot profile declared that he was from Immokalee, a freshman at Florida Gulf Coast University studying business, and he liked to read and play basketball. Hes 25 now and clearly making it in America. As branch manager for Enterprise Rent-A-Car at the Naples Municipal Airport, Mr. Destine is putting his degree in marketing and management to good use. He says managers for his company do it all, from sales to service, from marketing to managing the branch employees. When you work for Enterprise, youve got your hands in everything, he says. And doing everything has paid off financially, enabling Mr. Destine to move to a condominium in Fort Myers and, along with his sister, Yvette an elementary school teacher in Cape Coral to represent the first generation in his family to go to college and earn a degree. He wouldnt have imagined it when he was a child. I just thought Id be like the rest of my family go to high school and then get a job, he says. But The Immokalee Foundations postsecondary and career success program helped him envision much more for his life. Mr. Destine came under the foundations wing while still in high school. He received help with his academic plan, applying to colleges and finding and competing for scholarships. He decided on FGCU. And even during college, a mentor met up with me on campus, the whole nine yards, he says. The Immokalee Foundation didnt get me to college and forget about me. His association with Enterprise began with an internship during his senior year of college. He then worked at the Southwest Florida International Airport branch. After graduation, he stayed with the company full-time and soon was promoted to assistant manager. For the past year and a half, he has managed his own branch in Naples. The goal of TIFs post-secondary and career success program is to help students make the transition from high school to college and beyond. It helps them develop important life skills such as financial responsibility, time management and study habits skills that will benefit them now and later in life. Mr. Destine was not alone in finding it hard to imagine earning a college degree and having the kinds of career opportunities his parents and grandparents never had. He and his sister were raised by their grandmother, who died two years ago. TIF remains as an anchor for them in the community and a loyal force in their lives. TIFs major annual fundraisers like the Charity Classic Celebration and the Charity Classic Pro-Am make foundation programs possible, but so do donations, bequests, mentors, volunteers and a dedicated staff. This 25th year of the foundation was notable for the first graduation of a physician, Dr. Kristen Dimas, who is completing her residency with Lee Health and plans to stay in the area to use her education to help her community of origin. Support from the business community also has been essential to the growth of Immokalees children into educated adults who realize their potential. TIFs post-secondary and career success program also provides vocational opportunities for students who are not college-bound but are needed to fill important, well-paying jobs, particularly in heavy equipment mechanics. The post-secondary and career success program is bolstered by TIFs career development and junior career development programs for students at younger ages, beginning in middle school. Through speakers, presentations and outings to places of business in Southwest Florida, TIF students learn about a range of careers, from finance to military service, veterinary medicine to nursing, social work, performing arts, restaurant and other business opportunities.

Door to Door or convenient drop off at SW FLorida AirportRemember lost loved ones at Avow butterfly ceremonyAvow invites everyone to its annual butterfly r elease and community memorial service Saturday, March 25, at Cambier Park. Childrens activities begin and a walk-through tent with hundreds of live butte rflies opens at 10 a.m. The memorial service starts at noon and will include inspirational readings, music and a name-reading ceremony to honor the lives of loved ones. At the conclusion of the service, the exhibit tent will open, allowing more than 500 butter flies to float into the sky. Jaysen Roa, Avow president and CEO, says the b utterfly w as chosen as the symbolic representation for this event because it undergoes a major transformative process as part of its normal life cycle. The butterfly is a reminder of how beautiful, delicate and fragile life can be, so that we should remember to appreciate and be grateful for each moment, he says. Many view the butterfly as a symbol of joy, happiness, rebirth, and renewal. The butte rfly evokes an image that is mild and gentle, one that can touch the heart and provide strength during difficult times. The Avow butterfly release is generously endowed by the Gorlach family. Admission is free. Early arrival is recommended to allow for parking, check-in, and time to experience the butterfly exhibit prior to the start of the ceremony. Those who wish to have a loved ones name read during the remembrance ceremony can do so by donating $40 per name (through March 24) to support Avows hospice and community programs. A limited number of name registrations will be available on the day of the event for $50 per name, prior to the start of the ceremony.

A24 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 16-22, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELBMW X4 is strange, and thats why you like itBMW might have just created the perfect Florida car with the X4 crossover, but the question is, did they really mean to do that? Its hard to confine the X4 to one vehicle class. It has four doors like a sedan, but theres a sweeping rear roofline that German companies like BMW will still call coupes. It has the raised suspension of an off-road machine, but the tire package is from a sports car. And when the car-like rear decklid is opened, it reveals a versatile hatchback design.Seems confusing, right? Thats why BMW had to create the term Sports Activity Coupe. This is actually the companys second SAC behind the X6, and Mercedes and Audi are even following suit. So, this segment is more than just a fluke.What an SAC really provides is a crossover for people who wanted a sports car. It works well where twentysomethings like to be seen in tall machines with prestigious badges, like when arriving at a nightclub in Miami Beach. But in reality, this is a vehicle that works exceptionally well for the senior demographic, too. After all, the X4 has swoopy coupe lines, but its high ride height means theres no bending down to get inside. And the overall size is 10 inches shorter than the X6, so its even easier to park. BMW already makes a taller version of its cars known as the Gran Turismo that offers similar mobility benefits to the X4, but this one just does a better job of hiding its functionality under trendy skin. Inside, the X4 only loses a few inches of wheelbase over the X6. That means plenty of legroom up front, and theres even still proper seating behind the tallest of drivers. The instrumentation is lifted directly from the X3 crossover a vehicle that shares the South Carolina assembly line with the X4. The good news about this is that the X3/X4 has a well laid-out interior that keeps many of the familiar BMW family components (gauges, gearshift, iDrive, etc.) But it also feels a little better executed in some places. For example, other BMW vehicles have their infotainment screens mounted on top of the dashboard. The X3/X4s screen is smaller, but it seems a bit nicer because its integrated into the dash design. Our tester car was optioned with the M Sport interior that upgrades a few elements, including the steering wheel. Its not only thinner than the stock piece, but also fans of BMW history will love that the smaller round airbag allows the steering wheel to look like the classic performance designs from the first 3-Series and 2002 models. And having a sporty feeling is key to the X4. The base motor is a twinscroll turbo four-cylinder that produces a healthy 240. Upgrade to the X4 M40i, and that odd alphabet soup will add a six-cylinder turbo that yields nearly 50 percent more power. The 355 hp motor in our test car loved to generate low-end turbo boost so that it was always the first one to the next stoplight. And while the X4 is taller than a sports car, the sports suspension and grippy road tires made sure there was no real body roll. This kind of performance does come at a cost. The X4 starts at $46,545, which includes standard all-wheel drive. Upgrading to the M40i adds $12,550 more, and thats before expensive goodies like the head-up display or 20-inch wheels are added. In fact, a vehicle like the one seen here is more expensive than its X6 larger sibling. The loaded X4 is lighter and more powerful than any comparably-priced X6 out there, and its in this distinction that creates its the real versatility. The X4 is not as capable off-road as an SUV, cannot carry as much cargo as a wagon, and is not as speedy as a true sports car. But it carries a little hint of each. Thus, it can be the sports car for people who want a trendy crossover, and it can be the tall crossover for those who are forced to give up their sports car. And whether youre a retiree or a club kid, youve probably got this one on your premium shopping list. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com Dunkin Donuts on East Trail hosts Coffee with a CopThe Collier County Sheriffs Office partners with Dunkin Donuts for Coffee with a Cop from 7-10 a.m. Wednesday, March 22, at Dunkin Donuts at 3440 Tamiami Trail E.

To date, only a few portions have paved shoulder considered safe for bicyclists/walkers/hikers (one of the best portions is the 10 miles between Port of the Islands and SR29 in Collier County). The idea for ROGG was born out of a notion to provide public access to one of the most unique and well-studied landscapes in the world. Building on the allure of a long-distance hiking and biking experience for a variety of users, ROGG is envisioned to bring awareness to the Greater Everglades ecosystem, including ongoing ecological restoration in the region. Fishermen, photographers and birders will also embrace the ability to better enjoy the area and promote stewardship of its unique assets.Pick your route and paceThe Everglades Bike Ride is not a race, organizers stress. Cyclists can pedal at their own comfortable pace and are encouraged to watch for wildlife and stop at places of interest along the way.

Today, we are a teaching institution with a graduate medical education program starting this July with 12 internal medicine residents. With growth and complexity comes the opportunity to impr ove, which is why we now inculcating a behavioral change that embraces efficiency and effectiveness using lean transformation. Ill explain with some examples of how we are encouraging our colleagues to ask questions, make suggestions, be engaged and enjoy the success of improvement. The way we structure operations and solve problems has changed over the past three years under the leadership of Mustafa Abdulali, Dirk van Rossum and Chris Vasta. Examples abound with a common thread of front-line colleagues who are most familiar with the requirements, processes and areas needing the greatest change being most involved. A few notable recent projects are: A nurse at NCH has traditionally been responsible for a group of four to six patients. Under the leadership of Angela Devaney, nurse manager on the fourth floor at the North Naples hospital, however, our nurses and clinical technicians are now organized into teams in order to give one nurse who may be temporarily overwhelmed assistance by a nurse from their team. Think of bowling, where four team members act individually, versus soccer, where team members pass the ball among themselves in a very inter-dependent way. On the hospital floor, this kind of collaboration sounds like a simple mindset HEALTHY LIVING allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org SEE WEISS, A33 Florida Scripps scientists develop class of drugs that kill prostate and triple negative breast cancers SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYScientists on the Jupiter campus of The Scripps Research Institute have designed two new drug candidates to target prostate and triple negative breast cancers. The research, published recently as two separate studies in ACS Central Science and the Journal of the American Chemical Society, demonstrates that a new class of drugs called small molecule RNA inhibitors can successfully target and kill specific types of cancer. This is like designing a scalpel to precisely seek out and destroy a cancer but with a pill and without surgery, said Professor Matthew Disney, senior author of both studies. RNAs are molecules that translate our genetic code into proteins. RNA defects can lead to cancers, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, myotonic dystrophy and many other diseases. In their ACS Central Science study, Disney and his colleagues used DNA sequencing to evaluate thousands of small molecules as potential drug candidates. The researchers were on the lookout for molecules that could bind precisely with defective RNAs like keys fitting in the right locks. This strategy led them to a compound that targets the precursor molecule to an RNA called microRNA-18a. This RNA had caught the attention of scientists who found that mature microRNA-18a inhibits a protein that suppresses cancer. When microRNA-18a is overexpressed, cancers just keep growing. Disney and his team tested their compound, called Targapremir-18a, and found that it could target microRNA-18a and trigger prostate cancer cell death. Since microRNA-18a is overexpressed in cancer cells and helps to maintain them as cancerous, application of Targapremir-18a to cancer cells causes them to kill themselves, Disney said. Disney said the precise binding of Targapremir-18a to microRNA-18a means a cancer drug that follows this strategy would be likely to kill prostate cancer cells without causing the broad side effects seen with many other cancer therapies. And there may be even bigger implications. We could apply the strategy used in this study to quickly identify and design small molecule drugs for other RNA-associated diseases, explained Sai Velagapudi, a research associate in the Disney lab. The same screening strategy led the researchers to a drug candidate to target triple negative breast cancer, as reported in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. Triple negative breast cancer is especially hard to treat because it lacks the receptors, such as the estrogen receptor, targeted with other cancer drugs. The Disney lab aimed to get around this problem by instead targeting an RNA called microRNA-210, which is overexpressed in solid breast cancer tumors. The researchers tested their drug compound, Targapremir-210, in mouse models of triple negative breast cancer. They found that the therapy significantly slowed down tumor growth. In fact, a single dose decreased tumor size by 60 percent over a three-week period. The researchers analyzed these smaller tumors and discovered that they also expressed less microRNA-210 compared with untreated tumors. Targapremir-210 appears to work by reversing a circuit that tells cells to survive at all costs and become cancerous. With microRNA-210 in check, cells regain their normal function and cancer cannot grow. We believe Targapremir-210 can provide a potentially more precise, targeted therapy that would not harm healthy cells, said TSRI graduate student Matthew G. Costales. Next, the researchers plan to further develop their molecule-screening strategy into a platform to test molecules against any form of RNA defect-related disease. DISNEY
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 16-22, 2017 A33 Most of us spend untold hours exercising, eating right, and trying to ensure that any areas of unwanted fat are kept as small as possible. But did you know that one of the things that ages us fastest is the loss of fat from our face as we grow one solution for restoring lost volume, theres a 100% natural solution that has revolutionized the way many cosmetic surgery procedures are being performed, especially in regards to facial rejuvenationfat grafting (also known as fat transfer). UNDERSTANDING FAT GRAFTING Ive consulted many patients that are frustrated with loss of volume in their face. They have enjoyed a long life and have taken time to care for their bodies through exercise, only to lose weight in an area that needs boosting! Im happy to share that they can have effective restoration in the facial hollows with fat grafting. The reason babies are so cute is because of their round, cherubic cheeks and the fullness in their faces. This remains throughout childhood and decreases with time. As we grow into adulthood, age, gravity, the environment, and the sun take a huge toll on our skin. Dramatic weight loss can also produce a gaunt or hollow look. Thankfully, we now have the ability to restore volume through fat grafting. What may sound a little daunting natural-looking way to enhance the shape of your face. FAT Heres how fat grafting typically works: To boost facial hollowsmost commonly the nasolabial folds (the folds from the corners of your mouth to your nose), the under-eye areas, the cheeks, and the templeswe take living fat cells from other areas of your body (e.g., the abdomen, thighs, or back of arms) and inject them into your desired spots. As an injectable It is soft and feels natural, offers a practical and natural alternative to maintenance. Downtime is minimal. The whole process takes two to three hours and is performed under local anesthesia. I often perform this procedure in conjunction with a browlift, necklift, or lower facelift. Typical side effects include light bruising in the area, which will generally take a few days to resolve. Restoring lost volume in the face creates more youthful contours with long-lasting results, erasing years while using an entirely natural substance from your own body. Have a look at more fantastic results from some of our patients by clicking here.

FRIDAY, MARCH 31ST AT 11:30AM change, but it makes a huge difference for patient service, quality and safety, not to mention making for more satisfied and happier nurses. Medication reconciliation, namely understanding what medicines a person is taking upon entering and leaving the hospital, is a huge challenge in our industry across America. Kim Thorp, our director of pharmacy, and Gina Teegarden, our associate chief nursing officer, and their colleagues are on the case, using everyones expertise, not merely brute force, to find a sustainable solution. While medication reconciliation is an ongoing journey, we have made significant progress. Cleaning surgical instrument trays is a complex and critical process that occurs more than 72,655 times a year in our Baker Hospital operating rooms. We had the opportunity to redo the downtown campus sterile processing department using a full-size mock-up to create the new space so our colleagues could walk through the process. Thanks to the efforts of a team led by Kieran Boyle, our sterile processing manager, many changes were made in the mock-up, quickly and inexpensively resulting in a much better final process characterized by fewer steps both physically and operationally. In our ever-changing industry, we must constantly be more efficient and effective with our limited resources. Being prudent and using best practices copied from other successful industries will ultimately help NCH help everyone we serve live longer, happier and healthier lives.

MARTY BECKER, KIM CAMPBELL THORNTON AND MIKKEL BECKERAndrews McMeelCats come programmed to keep their living area clean. Thats one of the things that make them great house companions. When a cat chooses not to use the litter box, people feel betrayed. Its no surprise that house-soiling the technical term for peeing or pooping outside the box is the No. 1 behavior problem reported in cats. But cats dont avoid the litter box out of spite, as owners often believe. One retrospective study meaning the researchers went back and looked at past cases to figure out possible associations found that 60 percent of cats who had issues with house soiling had a history of urinary tract disease. Not using the litter box can also be a sign of other health problems common in cats, including hyperthyroidism, diabetes mellitus and liver disease. There are other reasons cats may avoid the litter box. When other pets bully them in the box or they dont like the type of litter used or the location, size or cleanliness of their litter box, they vote with their paws: In other words, they dont use it. These nine tips will help keep your cat thinking inside the box. Take your cat in for a veterinary exam to rule out a urinary tract infection or other health problem. Try to figure out if your cat is having relationship issues with another cat or dog in the home, is unnerved by a new baby or person in the family, or is upset by some other change in his environment or schedule. In multi-cat homes, separate litter boxes so that one cat doesnt guard access to them. Providing multiple litter boxes is also important if you have an aging cat who may have trouble getting up or down stairs or otherwise trekking long distances to a litter box. A good rule of paw is one box per cat, plus one extra. Make the litter box attractive to your cat. Scoop it once or twice a day so that waste doesnt sit there and stink it up. At least once or twice a month, empty the box, wash it with warm water and unscented soap, and fill it with fresh litter. Offer your cat some alternative types of litter. Line up some open litter boxes, one filled with your cats regular litter and the others with alternatives. You may be surprised to find that your cat has a distinct preference. Fill the box with two to four inches of litter. Many cats like to have some depth for digging. Even with a deep bed of litter, you should still scoop it daily. Place the box in a quiet area where your cat will experience few interruptions. Cats like privacy when they do their business. Try a different type of litter box. If youre using a hooded litter box, try an uncovered one. An open litter box gives a cat a feeling of security because he can see people or other animals approaching. An uncovered litter box is also easier for you to scoop and clean. Discourage your cat from using the areas he soiled. An enzymatic cleanser is the best choice for stamping out odor that could draw your cat back to the area. Other ways to make it unpleasant for him to use that spot are to place his food and water dishes there or to cover the area with double-sided tape or aluminum foil. Remember that these techniques wont help unless you also uncover and address any health or social problems your cat may have. Knowing your cats potty preferences ensures that youll both be happy with the elimination situation in your home.

Resolutions never work for me on Jan. 1 or anytime in January, really because Im too busy putting away sparkly decorations, cleaning the house and eating leftover treats from festive holiday soirees. Also, February isnt convenient either, as there are far too many seasonal events to attend, plus its the month of both Valentines Day (chocolate) and Girl Scout Cookies (Thin Mints). So, Ive only recently achieved my 2017 resolution of joining a gym in mid-March. I mean, at least, its still technically winter; for another few days at least. Im notoriously bad at gyms. My first challenge is that most people go to the gym at the crack of dawn and I dont know about your bed, but MY bed somehow gets extra comfy as the day breaks I mean, it really turns on the charm around 7 a.m. and just gets softer and more cuddly as the morning wears on. Therefore, mornings are not my thing. In addition to my affection for bed, theres also my penchant for muumuus and if theres one thing you ought not to wear to the gym, its a muumuu. Im actually not worried about looking out of place in a sea of neon Spandex and razor-back sports bras, but I am concerned that my muumuu could get caught in the inner workings of the treadmill and result in strangulation or some other deadly accident. I understand that people sometimes get injuries in gyms when they over-extend themselves, but I dont want my coroners report to read, Death by Mummuu. Finally, there are the gym people and Im not one of them. I have no idea how to count my protein grams verses my carbohydrate intake vs. my cardio output multiplied by how many ounces of water I drink. I realize there are apps for all that, but Id rather use my phone to play Pokmon, not try to figure out how much time I need to spend doing squats to burn off the calories in one sleeve of Thin Mints because, admit it, who eats just one Thin Mint without devouring the whole sleeve? Luckily, theres a gym in my neighborhood that, while it wont permit me showing up in a flowy muumuu, can help me with all my other challenges. Its a trainer-based gym which means that you have to work with a personal trainer and if theres one thing Im good at, its keeping dates. The concept is that if you know you have to keep the appointment, youll show up. Also, Im a 3 in the afternoon kind of gal and the gym is OK with that 3 p.m. gives me a chance to sleep in, catch up on email, feed the cats and try to find something chic to sweat in that wont get caught in any fancy fitness equipment. And bonus if I start working out at 3, Ill be done just in time for Happy Hour. Heres hoping my trainer can help me calculate how many lunges it takes to work off a double margarita.

BY DON MANLEYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentFor proof of the profound impact teachers can have on their students, look no further than Kathy Bigham, president and CEO of Bigham Jewelers. It was her seventh grade choir instructor and basketball coach in suburban Cleveland whose choice of fashion accessories sparked an interest in Ms. Bigham that led to her career choice. I had a teacher who wore the most magnificent jewelry, which began my interest in jewelry, says Ms. Bigham, who founded her business in 1995 after moving to Naples from Ohio. From its start in a 2,800-square-foot, strip mall storefront, Bigham Jewelers has grown to the point that it now occupies an 8,000-square-foot, diamondshaped, stand-alone building dubbed the Bigham Galleria on U.S. 41. Shortly after its 2005 opening, InStore Magazine selected it as the Coolest Jewelry Store in America for being a luxurious, but ultra-cool store where customer service has never felt or looked so good. Combining her passion for jewelry and a burning desire to have her own independent family business became a goal during Ms. Bighams youth. Its a decision she hasnt regretted. I love jewelry, she says. I wanted to be able to wear and share it, and I wanted to be able to get into a business that I was passionate about. I wanted to be able to get up in the morning and say, Wow, I get to do this every day, and to share in peoples special occasions all year long. Entrepreneurship appealed to her for several reasons.

Fashioned after similar programs sponsored by business and civic organizations to introduce participants to the inner workings of their communities, the academy will meet monthly for six months, starting in April. Participants will be introduced to the newest facilities and programs offered at FGCU along with the administrators and faculty who manage them, and alumni who have benefited from The FGCU Effect. The program will not only provide leadership training from FGCU staff and alumni but will also provide an inside look at our ever-evolving campus and its surrounding properties in a special way, says Kimberly Wallace, director of alumni relations. For instance, well visit the waterfront Vester Marine Field Station in Bonita Springs and the new Emergent Technologies Institute a few miles northeast of campus both sites of cutting-edge educational research, Ms. Wallace says. On-campus tours will take participants behind the scenes at Alico Arena and FGCUs growing athletics facilities and the state-of-theart laboratories for tomorrows health-care professionals in Marieb Hall. Best of all, the deans of FGCUs colleges, faculty members and alumni representing each university program will be there to share industry trends and offer information and other practical tools that you can apply to your own business or profession, Ms. Wallace adds. Sessions will meet from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the third Friday of the month.

Williams, Specialists, Tax-Exempt Municipal BondsCapitalRock FinancialBusiness DevelopmentWe Hear You Naples MONEY & INVESTINGSo far Snapchat is a one-trick pony, so be cautious before investingA number of people have asked me about my opinion of Snap Inc.s IPO. For those not following financial markets, the parent company of Snapchat went public on March 2 with a very strong demand for the new stock. Because of this, the stock was priced above its expected price of $14 to $16, at $17 per share. SNAP opened at around $24 and by Friday it was trading above $27. So at this price, is this a good stock to buy? To answer this question, I think it would help to examine what makes a stock price move. Ask a typical investor and her answer would probably be good news or bad news. If a company reports something positive like good earnings, the stock should move higher. And if it has a negative announcement like poor revenues, the stock should fall. Actually, this is incorrect. Good news and bad news does not move stock prices. Unexpected news moves stock prices. For example, if a company was expected to post $10 million in losses in a quarter but it actually lost $9 million, that is still bad news. But the stock price actually may go up because the loss was better than expected it was actually unexpected good news. So going back to SNAP, at its current stock price the company is valued at $28 billion. It has no earnings (the company lost $500 million in 2016) and no dividend. Even using a multiple of sales, Snapchats value is staggering. Twitter is priced at four times sales. Facebook trades at 12 times sales. SNAP is valued at 60 times sales. So why is it worth so much? Because investors are already pricing good news into the stock. Company sales grew over 600 percent between 2015 and 2016. In order to justify its current valuation, the company must continue to grow at this kind of eye-popping rate. Skeptics point out that slowing user growth, saturation in the U.S. markets, higher expenses and increased competition from Facebook make this unlikely going forward. Snapchat supporters point to the wildly successful Facebook IPO as an example of a highly valued stock that rewarded investors. And it is true that when Facebook debuted as a public company at a frothy 24 times sales, many analysts said that the company was completely overvalued. But those analysts were proved wrong when the company went on to rise from its offering price of $38 to over $130 today.But what people may have forgotten was that Facebook not only rewarded investors with good results over the past few years but unexpectedly good financials. When the stock went public in 2012, the company had a significant user base just like Snapchat. But many investors were worried because users were using Facebook on their home computers but mobile computing was taking off. They didnt believe that Facebook would be able to get advertisers to pay big money to advertise on tiny smart phone screens.These skeptics were clearly wrong and Facebook was able to monetize all of the new tablet and smart phone users. That is why the stock price has grown so quickly over the past couple of years the unexpected success of its mobile advertising. So the question now for SNAP is what unexpected positive catalysts are there for the company. If the company just grows as it is expected to, I would argue that it probably is not a wonderful investment as the stock is fully valued today and probably wont move much higher. And any revenue/user slowdowns, insider selling, or other negative surprises could destroy the stock as seen with a similar company, Twitter. So the only way the company, in my opinion, is a good investment at this time is if the company can do something that the market is not anticipating. So far, the company has been a one-trick pony, so I dont see that creativity in the near future. Therefore, before investing in this new stock, I would first wait until the lockout period ends and insiders can begin to sell their stock. This should put near term pressure on the stock. And second, I would wait until the company demonstrates it can do something not currently anticipated by the market. Yes, you may miss the bottom of the stock run, but I think the risks just dont justify the rewards here right now.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 16-22, 2017 BUSINESS B5I really wanted to be able to have the flexibility to have a family and to be able to create jobs for my own family and for others, she said. I think family businesses are something that is more and more difficult to pass on. She is the product of a working-class background. I didnt grow up with much, although I certainly had what I needed, she says. We lived paycheck to paycheck like most of the people we knew, but I wanted more. I take care of my family. My mom and dad (Dan and Linda Kelly) are both retired and Im glad that they could do it. Her family played and still plays a role in the business. Her mother, her brother Dan Kelly, ex-husband Gary Bigham, and her sister-in-law, Bonnie Bigham, all assisted with Bigham Jewelers at its inception and continue to play a role in day-to-day operations. Bigham Galleria features creations by award-winning designers such as Elizabeth Locke, David Yurman, Penny Preville, Picchiotti and Bilgore. Many designers make personal appearances at the store, bringing extensive collections and interacting with customers. The store also offers a selection of watches from Rolex, Baume & Mercier, Carl F. Bucherer, Sablier and Shinola, as well as pre-owned timepieces. Its not like walking into a typical jewelry store, Ms. Bigham says. We have something for everyone. She received a bachelors degree in business from Kent State in 1989, graduating in four years while attending night classes. On weekdays, she worked the early shift at a trucking company, and on weekends she sold gold jewelry from a briefcase. After graduating, she joined the former Akron Diamond Trading Company, rising from a sales position to vicepresident of store operations. Upon opening her store, Ms. Bigham made community service, specifically causes that benefit women and children, a focal point. The Boys and Girls Club of Collier County, the Christ Child Society, the Naples Alliance for Children, The Naples Players and Baker Park are among the more than 50 organizations the business Bigham Jewelers has supported over the years. Those efforts led to her being named one of Colliers Junior Achievement Business Hall of Fame laureates for 2016. Ms. Bigham invited Kathy Leciejeski, the teacher who so profoundly influenced her, to the awards ceremony and she recognized her during her acceptance speech. The tagline for the Bigham Jewelers TV commercials Have We Met Yet? has not only served as a warm, unique identifier for the business, but has also caught on with the public, Ms. Bigham says. I cant go anywhere in town without someone coming over and saying, Have we met yet? Interview with Kathy BighamBusiness mentors: A first and lifelong mentor was my uncle, Bill Wortzman. An entrepreneur in my Cleveland hometown, he established a respected and highly successful financial services firm, starting from scratch.Locally, my favorite mentor is the amazing Myra Janco Daniels, whose wisdom and grounded advice continue to inspire me.First job: When I was 10 years old, I got a paper route. Business words of wisdom: One of my favorite quotes is by Yoda, the jedi master in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. He says simply: Do. Or do not. There is no try. This quote inspired my business motto: Make it happen. Favorite business book: Malcolm Gladwells Outliers, for its insights on what it takes to reach high achievement levels in different fields. Things you look for when hiring: I look for three qualities in a candidate: That s/he CAN do the job, WANTS to do the job and WILL do the job. I need all three; if one is doubtful, its a no-go. Any job openings now? Because we are fortunate to be growing steadily, we always look for that additional right candidate. When s/he appears, we will create the position. Last time you had to fire someone and reason: Truthfulness is a musthave in our company. Last summer, I had to separate a new employee who had misrepresented himself.

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 16-22, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYventional home loan. Its especially difficult for businesses less than two years old and those showing little or no profit come tax time. Some business owners have a profitable business and cash flow but on paper run at a loss for tax purposes, said Greg McBride, the Palm Beach Gardens-based chief financial analyst for bankrate.com. Its nearly impossible for recent startups to get a loan unless there are other income streams or the business owner still has a day job. The 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, which overhauled the nations financial regulatory system and is slated for likely termination under the Trump Administration, tightened the mortgage approval process. Self-employed applicants can no longer show check stubs or bank statements as proof of income. Still fresh off the Great Recession and robosigning, traditional lending institutions are scrutinizing business and personal tax returns more closely. Line 37, the adjusted gross income on the 1040, is the bottom line for most banks and typically disqualifies those in business for themselves from low-interest conventional loans, VA, USDA and FHA mortgages. CPAs can be very creative in claiming deductions for small business owners, said John Salter, a relationship manager at PNC Bank in Boynton Beach. They get taxes down as much as possible, which is great for tax time but a challenge when these business owners try to get a mortgage. Nationally, more Americans are their own bosses. Some 15 million workers, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, have stepped out of corporate America and are working for themselves. Between 2012 and 2013, Florida led the nation with 63,000 individuals joining the ranks of the self-employed. Census data, which will be updated in May, shows self-employed individuals account for the majority of all U.S. businesses. Realtors, ironically, are among the self-employed who often dont qualify for a mortgage. So, too, are attorneys, entrepreneurs and the growing ranks of freelance and contract workers. Its also difficult for these solo professionals just getting started in their careers. Florida has over 1.8 million selfemployed workers, with professional services particularly jobs in real estate and rentals accounting for the most. The state also leads the country with the most mortgage failures, according to NerdWallet, a personal finance website which allows users to compare products available at various banks and insurance companies. Nearly one in five mortgage applications 17.1 percent get turned down, it discovered during in its inaugural Home Buyer Reality Report. Angie Fritz Nichols, broker associate for The Nichols Team as Jones & Co. Realty in Fort Myers, encounters selfemployed would-be homebuyers all the time. There are lenders out there who can get it done if the buyer has been selfemployed for two years with enough claimed income to qualify for the loan.It takes timeFor those who cant show enough income, rectifying the situation isnt going to happen overnight. In most cases, banks will ask for two years of tax returns. Tim Manni, a mortgage expert at NerdWallet, suggests business owners reduce their deductions and start taking a salary, which means paying more taxes. Its definitely possible to target a conventional loan, but its going to take time and research longer than a traditional salary position, he said. You might have to write off less in those two years. Mortgage companies are going to look at line 7 to 22 on the 1040 and 23 to 37 for adjusted gross income. Debt levels are another thing. The bottom line, said Victoria Prast, vice president of mortgage operations for Achieva Credit Union, is how much of a financial risk the potential borrower poses. At the end of the day its about qualifying someone for something they can definitely afford, she said. They have to have the ability to repay. There are regulations on lending that werent there before and we have to show were making good business decisions. As a member-owned institution, Ms. Prast said the 80-year-old Pinellas Parkbased credit union with offices throughout Southwest Florida, has more flexibility than a traditional bank. We follow a more common-sense approach, she said. Members feel we are looking at their particular situation and not asking for it to fit into a box. We can look beyond the bottom line and the current profit and loss, but it does have to make sense. Ms. Prast and other experts also advise self-employed business owners to separate business and personal expenses. Paying for a business expense with a personal account can affect personal debt-to-income ratio, another key factor in qualifying for a home loan. Lenders look for a ratio of 36 percent or less when dividing monthly debt obligations by pretax income. Achieva also considers how much a member is paying for rent compared to a monthly mortgage. All lending institutions will factor in home-related expenses, including monthly mortgages, taxes, insurance and homeowners association fees and other debts like credit cards and personal, school and car loans. For the self-employed, Mr. Manni suggests keeping tax write-offs low to attain a 36 to 43 percent ratio. Having a really strong credit score, coming to the table with a large down payment and providing ample financial documentation will help your cause, he said. Also, be prepared to be Googled, said Mr. Manni, noting a potential lender searched online for a former colleague, a self-employed freelance writer, to see who she worked for and if it was consistent. It was kind of shocking to her. She did get approved. The bottom line is income, Mr. Manni said. Ten years from now a bank wants to be able to protect its loan. You have to show you have money now and in the future. Formerly the Pinellas County Teachers Union, Achieva has grown with the acquisition of other credit unions and opening offices in Cape Coral, Estero and Port Charlotte. By carefully vetting its mortgage holders, Achieva survived the housing crisis with less than 1 percent of its mortgages in default. Nationally, 90-day delinquency rates and foreclosure initiation procedures reached an all-time high of 25 percent in May 2008.Paying the priceThere is another option for the selfemployed who want to buy a home sooner rather than later. Google selfemployed home loans and more than 1.6 million results pop up, including shouty responses and advertisements guaranteeing approval. One of the top, Home 1st Lending, rings right to Ruth Macellari, who runs the Naples branch. Shes worked with attorneys, Realtors and lawn-care company owners locally and statewide. Depending on the dreaded line 37 on their tax return, she can qualify them for a conventional loan. Home 1st Lending offers a portfolio of mortgage products, including a nontraditional loan that forgoes the tax return for 24 months of personal or business tax statements. But there are downsides, including higher interest rates based on credit score and down payment amount and a one-time 2.75-percent fee due at closing. Unlike a conventional loan, private mortgage insurance isnt a requirement for anyone putting less than 20 percent down. I do seven to eight of these a month, said Ms. Macellari. Only a few lenders do this. Its a matter of weighing the cost benefits pay higher interest or additional business taxes. For example, monthly mortgage payments with a 20 percent down payment on a $250,000 loan at todays 3.75 percent interest rates would run about $954 with no PMI. Expect to pay about $1,200 a month for a 6 percent home loan through Home 1st Lending. It is more but youre getting a loan, Ms. Macellari said. You can always refinance out at any time.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Know Your RMDsIf youve been saving for retirement in a tax-deferred account, you may be subject to required minimum distributions (RMDs) one day even if you dont need the money. RMDs are mandatory withdrawals you must take from certain retirement accounts after you reach age 70 1/2. (Theyre sometimes referred to as minimum required distributions, or MRDs.) The RMD applies to accounts you contributed to on a pre-tax basis or that contain tax-deferred investment gains such as traditional (non-Roth) IRAs, traditional (non-Roth) 401(k) or 403(b) accounts, Keogh accounts, SEP IRAs, SIMPLE IRAs and more. You need to take your first RMD from your tax-deferred retirement accounts by April 1 of the year following the calendar year in which you turn 70 1/2. For example, if you turn 70 1/2 in 2017, youll have until April 1, 2018, to take your first RMD. In subsequent years, you need to take your annual RMD before Dec. 31. Note that this means you might take two RMDs in the first year. That can be problematic if it propels you into a higher tax bracket. Your RMD doesnt have to be a lumpsum withdrawal. You can take money out throughout the year as long as you have withdrawn the required amount before the deadline. If you fail to take your RMD, the penalty is extremely harsh. The IRS can penalize you 50 percent of the amount of the RMD not taken by the deadline. So if you fail to take an RMD of $20,000 on time, the IRS can fine you a whopping $10,000. So how is your RMD calculated? Its based on the balance of your retirement account, as well as your age and the age of your spouse, if you have one. IRS tables can help you determine your RMD each year and many companies that manage retirement accounts will calculate it for account holders. Some will let you set up automated annual withdrawals, too.

Bat Guano CrazyMy dumbest investment is a weird one. In the late 1950s and 1960, a mining company aimed to profit from a cave in the Grand Canyon filled with bat droppings, a fabulous treasure of fertilizer. It built a cable system across the canyon to extract the stuff and bring it to a processing plant, where it was packaged for distribution and sale. The company experienced many mishaps and problems, though, and didnt make me rich. P., onlineThe Fool Responds: Its certainly an interesting story! It turns out that the U.S. Guano Company leased the cave, which was estimated to contain 100,000 to 200,000 tons of bat guano. It was very costly to build a tramway over a mile long, and the cable reportedly broke several times. Even worse, the cave apparently held much less guano than expected. One report said, The company had spent $3.5 million to salvage 1,000 tons of guano, which sold for 69 cents a pound. (That amounts to about $1.4 million in revenue.) An odd silver lining in this cloud of a story is that a U.S. Air Force aircraft accidentally flew by and severed the cable, enabling the company, reportedly, to sue the Air Force and recoup some costs. A lesson here is to consider all possible risks when deciding whether to invest in a company. Remember that estimates can turn out to be quite incorrect. General Electrics Bright FutureNot all that long ago, General Electric (NYSE: GE) was a mega-conglomerate with its hands in a wide variety of businesses. Not anymore. GE has since sold or spun off a number of businesses (such as its financial units and NBC) and has returned to its industrial roots but with a twist. Instead of just being a traditional manufacturer, GE is becoming a digital industrial company, combining its software and manufacturing expertise to create next-generation products. Those offerings include gas turbines, jet engines, light bulbs, locomotives and other industrial products that connect to the internet. When combined with a subscription to GEs Predix software, these new products will be able to run more efficiently and communicate potential maintenance issues, both of which can greatly lower operating costs. That should allow GE to steadily steal market share and substantially grow revenue in its high-margin software division. If this works out as planned, GEs bottom line looks well positioned for growth in the years ahead. Market watchers believe that GEs bottom line will grow by more than 12 percent annually over the next five years. Thats fast for a company recently trading at a forward-looking price-toearnings (P/E) ratio in the teens. Throw in a dividend that recently yielded 3.2 percent, and GE looks like a stock patient investors can learn to love. (The Motley Fool owns shares of General Electric.) I trace my roots back to 1928, when two cousins named Ed made a folding woodslat reclining chair for porch use. A year later they upholstered it for indoor use and gave it a name that some might find insulting. Chair production temporarily gave way to airplane-part production during World War II. In the decades after the war, ottomans, rockers, builtin footrests and electric controls were introduced. By the s, my chairs offered heating and massages. Today, based in Michigan, I employ more than 6,000 people and sport a market value near $1.4 billion. Who am I? (Answer: La-Z-Boy) Whats Fair for Facebook?QI see that Facebook has a market value near $400 billion. Isnt that pretty high? E.M., Walnut Creek, CaliforniaAIt depends on how Facebook is performing and what you think its prospects are. A companys value is largely in the eyes of its beholders. With Facebook, you might check out a few numbers to assess its value. Its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, for example, was recently 39. Thats far steeper than the S&P 500s recent P/E in the mid-20s, but Facebook is growing much faster than the average company. Its revenue in 2016 topped $27 billion, up from $18 billion in 2015. Over the same year, profits surged from $3.7 billion to $10.2 billion. Fast growers tend to sport steep P/E ratios.For more context, consider the approximate recent market values of Apple ($730 billion), General Electric ($265 billion), Google parent Alphabet ($575 billion) and Amazon.com ($400 billion). Looking at those, does a $400 billion value for Facebook seem reasonable? Think about how reliable its expected earnings and growth rates are, and how sure you are that it will still be around in five or 10 years. Facebook is not without risks, such as falling out of favor, but many investors expect it to successfully generate revenue from its daily users, who number more than 1 billion. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Facebook.) ***QHow can I look up a companys ticker symbol? F.L., HoustonAThe simplest way is online. Enter the companys name into a search box at many major financial websites, such as finance.yahoo.com or caps.fool.com, and youll get the symbol. Youll likely find much more information on the company there, too. Want more information about stocks?

What does Concierge Service mean to you? The term Concierge is French, meaning keeper of the keys. History reveals Concierge first appeared in France in the Middle Ages. The Concierge was responsible for keeping the keys to royal households and ensuring that visiting guests had everything they needed and wanted. Have you ever said I need to clone myself, or I need a wife even if you are a wife? Many feel there are simply not enough hours in the day. Consistently, families need to work 36 hours of activity into a 24 hour day. Although the concierge industry is fairly new, the number of companies that are catering to busy families is skyrocketing. A concierge service assures the necessary, but often time-consuming tasks are addressed. From retrieving prescriptions and groceries, to overseeing a home repair, packing and organizing, a concierge service can be very beneficial when you simply cant be everywhere at once. Services are also valuable when you would rather be spending quality time with family, versus running errands. Experienced concierge service providers have heard it all, so theres no need to be shy about asking for assistance. Anything from grocery shopping and planning/ parties, to caring for your home, boat and plants, or maybe delivering a picnic lunch to the beach, your extra pair of hands are standing by ready to help. Folks choose to spend their leisure time on Useppa Island in order to escape the hectic pace of life. Owning a vacation home should be just that a vacation. This is the opportunity to enjoy time with family, relax and savor all the fun that can fit into your day and night. On Useppa, weve found a concierge service that allows us to spend our time sailing, fishing, reading, walking the beach or swaying in a hammock. At Your Service Island Concierge. Yes!

Local listeners looking to add a dash of authenticity back into their musics down-home twang need look no further than the first-ever Naples City Limits festival from 7-10 p.m. Saturday, March 18, at Naples Botanical Garden. Shane Smith and The Saints take the stage to raise money for the Childrens Advocacy Center. Part Mumford & Sons and part Creedence Clearwater Revival, the band executes a mix of rock and country with dashes of Celtic, Cajun and folk influences to connect with their audience. I think the greater percentage of our fan base is people who are looking for honest, genuine music that sings about things country used to sing about, frontman Shane Smith says. You cant often hear that on the radio anymore. You have to dig for it nowadays. He describes the bands show as high-energy and lyrically very honest. The words matter, he says, not only because articulate word play enhances the music and gives audiences another element to connect with, but also because he doesnt want to sing songs he cant relate to anymore. I just dont want to write anything that Im going to regret as an older person, he says.

Privately published. 277 pages. Kindle e-book, $2.99.This is Naples resident Kinley Robys 11th and final Harry Brock Mystery. Though he had planned for it to be the last, an unexpected dilemma must have sullied the closure experience a bit. Accidentally deleting the almost completed text file and its backup from his computer (a cautionary tale, writer friends), Mr. Roby had to laboriously reconstruct his narrative. In the interim, the publisher of the first 10 series titles decided to abandon the detective fiction genre, leaving the author with little choice but to self-publish it via Amazons Digital Services division. The good news is that its here but so far only as an e-book. A confessed fan of the series, I found it once again meeting the high bar of the others in most ways. Readers might trip over the typos of one kind or another that havent yet been corrected, but there are still so many things to enjoy. Mr. Roby sets the series in a disguised version of Naples and environs. Those familiar with the area will have fun penetrating the place names (such as Vienna Village) the author invents for familiar locations, as well his presentation of the cultural environment.Harry is still running his PI business, patrolling the patch of government land called Bartrams Hammock on the edge of the Everglades. He inhabits a small house in exchange for warden duties, and he gets mixed up in cases that also involve local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. And, as in past adventures, beautiful women are omnipresent. Harrys also still spending time with his friend and neighbor, Tucker. The two aging outdoorsmen are still doing a bit of farming. Its a delight that the author allows us to see them tending to pets with whom they carry on conversations. Harry and Tucker are an intelligent, humorous odd couple. Tuckers niece, Delia, temporarily living with her uncle, is one of several attractive women whom Harry admires and with whom a relationship almost blooms. Plot? An enormous international trade in stolen art run by cutthroat thieves is leaving a trail of bodies and threatens to leave more if Harry and the law enforcement officials cant put a stop to the menace. Some of those involved in this illicit industry are on the edge of cooperating with the authorities to save their own lives and perhaps some of their filthy lucre. The ins and outs of the complex schemes that all sides are hatching create the intellectual stimulation that Mr. Robys novels always deliver. The dialogue between Harry and his friends in uniform captures the nature of their relationships as well as the ways professionals develop and refine plans designed to take down criminals. Mr. Robys characters are well delineated by their patterns of speech and other tools of this writers trade. Theres more than enough violence, including a huge shootout, to satisfy any filmmaker looking for a book to base a box office success upon. Theres also plenty of suspense and an unusually deep penetration into the minds and feelings of the main players. Mr. Robys dedication to building complex, credible characters is best revealed in his treatment of the slow demise of Harrys relationship with Holly, a woman he has lived with and loves, but not enough to step out of his safety zone and follow her to the place she needs to make home. Their problem with commitment and exposure is drawn with sensitivity and sympathy. Somewhat less credible, but totally enjoyable, is the striking Russian woman named Arda Grigoryev who assists in the art theft business. More accurately, she is trapped in it. Both she and her boss warn that his involvement might lead Harry to harm; unexpectedly, they truly seem to care about him. Harry is charmed by her sexuality and by her laughable mangling of the English language. You will be, too. A Burmese python, a bear, a sexstarved bobcat, a cerebral mule, a honey harvest and a handful of females fawning over Harry are among the many and varied ingredients in this delicious farewell to Harry Brock. (By the way, Mr. Roby is now working on a western.) Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 16-22, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYREAD FESTFrom page 1 author of the widely praised 2016 book Oh, Florida! How Americas Weirdest State Influences the Rest of the Country. Mr. Pittman will appear March 18 at the Southwest Florida Reading Festival in Centennial Park. Oh, Florida! recently won the Florida Book Award gold medal for nonfiction. Learning that Id won was so exciting that when I heard it I nearly dropped my machete, Mr. Pittman joked at the time. His book brims with wacky and loopy stories about the ubiquitous Florida Man, which led to a Twitter account and eventually the book. But the book is about more than meth addicts and people throwing alligators through fast food drive through windows. Much more. So was Mr. Pittmans wide-ranging chat. He touched on Florida writers, history and the environment. That makes sense because Mr. Pittman covers the environment for the Tampa Bay Times. Through his long career he has compiled observations and insights that filled Oh, Florida. Florida Weekly reviewer Phil Jason wrote that, this book belongs in every Florida home. Mr. Jason also referred to the author as a master storyteller and a research addict. Mr. Pittmans research provided mounds of information. Ive barely scratched the surface in my book, Mr. Pittman said. He thought about including the Koreshans in his book. The Koreshans were a cult who settled in Estero in the 1890s. The Koreshan story was chronicled by Florida Gulf Coast University associate journalism professor Lyn Millners book The Allure of Immortality, An American Cult, a Florida Swamp, and a Renegade Prophet. Mr. Pittmans original manuscript was too long. There wasnt room for the Koreshans. The editor kicked it back to me and said this is great but its 100 pages too long, Mr. Pittman said. You got to cut it. So some stories had to be cut, including one about a fellow from Punta Gorda. Out went the guy who said he had a love affair with a dolphin, Mr. Pittman said. Not even one of Floridas most fabled characters could make it. When I go around and give talks, theyll ask, Hey, do you have the Skunk Ape in there? Mr. Pittman said. Alas, the Skunk Ape didnt make it. But the book made it to readers. For a while, that didnt appear likely. It was rejected by 15 publishers, Mr. Pittman said. Why? Mr. Pittman said publishers liked the book and thought it was a great idea. But they doubted it would sell beyond the state line. Eventually, of course, St. Martins Press picked it up. And Mr. Pittman will appear at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books in April, proving the book has appeal far beyond Florida. Mr. Pittman is already working on his next book. Im not really ready to talk about it but its a more serious story, Mr. Pittman said. Its got some wacky touches. Its an environmental book. Mr. Pittman is also working on a novel. My goal was to write the ultimate Florida crime novel, Mr. Pittman said. Its got machete vs. sword fight. Its got an obscene statue used as a weapon. Its got a naked meth addict and theres a retired Weeki Wachee mermaid. Mr. Pittman isnt ready yet to announce the novels title. Mr. Pittman, whose Florida family roots go back to 1850, only five years after statehood, isnt embarrassed by the states zaniness. What I always try to tell people is a lot of folks say to me, Oh, Im always embarrassed by news coming out of Florida, said Mr. Pittman, who grew up in Pensacola. I tell them dont be embarrassed. Be proud of that. Be proud that you live in the most interesting state in the union. Mr. Pittman grew up reading and participating in Boy Scouts in the Panhandle. Both activities formed Mr. Pittman. I was a real, shy book-nerd sort of guy growing up, Mr. Pittman said. Reading and stories were part of his childhood. My grandfather worshipped at the altar of Perry Mason, Mr. Pittman said. He loved the TV show. He read all the books. My mother was a big fan of Agatha Christie. Then there was his great-aunt Pansy who introduced him to perhaps the most influential Florida crime novelist of all, John D. MacDonald, creator of Travis McGee. When I was 14, she took a long drag on her cigarette and said, I think youre ready for Travis McGee and handed me a copy of a book that had a topless woman seen from the back on the cover, Mr. Pittman said. Yes, maam, I am ready for Travis McGee. He was soon hooked on Mr. MacDonald. He slips in these environmental messages, Mr. Pittman said. He teaches you that Florida is a beautiful place people are out to spoil it and maybe thats not such a good thing. As a participant in the Southwest Florida Reading Festival, the author is a staunch supporter of reading, especially for writers. You got to fill up the gas tank, Mr. Pittman said. You read other stuff so you can see how they structure sentences. You increase your vocabulary. You see how they tell a story. Anybody who wants to write has to read. People who dont read baffle me. I cant imagine what their lives are like. How do you function as a human being if you dont read? Craig Pittman reads. The evidence is in Oh, Florida, How Americas Weirdest State Influences the Rest of the Country. Improv on the pageChildrens book author never gave up the art of ad-libbing BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.comWhen author Chris Grabenstein attends a book festival or speaks at a school, hes greeted like a rock star especially by those in the 8to 12-yearold range. Even reluctant readers love his books. Third through sixth graders adore him. They just go crazy, he says, adding it takes a little more to win over the seventh and eighth graders. Mr. Grabenstein is the author of such New York Times Bestsellers as The Island of Dr. Libris and Escape From Mr. Lemoncellos Library. He has also collaborated with James Patterson on the I Funny, Treasure Hunters and House of Robots series and the books Word of Mouse, Jacky Ha-Ha and Daniel X: Armageddon. When he talks in schools, he does an improvisational exercise with the kids, using their suggestions and ideas to write a story with them. It teaches them about story structure while also showing them how not to get writers block. I never know what the storys going to be, what suggestions theyre going to give me, he says. Its never the same story twice. Thats what keeps it interesting. Mr. Grabenstein is one of half a dozen childrens book authors attending the Southwest Florida Reading Festival taking place Saturday, March 18, in Centennial Park in downtown Fort Myers. This years event includes adult authors such as Nathan Hill (The Nix), Gregg Hurwitz (Nowhere Man), Cassandra King (Moonrise), James Grippando (Most Dangerous Place) and Beatriz Williams (The Wicked City). A total of 26 authors of books for adults, teens and children are expected to attend. Mr. Grabenstein will speak at the childrens author/illustrator tent at 2:15 p.m. and sign books at 10:15 a.m. and 3:15 p.m.Amusement park beginningsMr. Grabenstein started his career doing improv in New York City. He then began writing advertising copy, working for now-bestselling author James Patterson at J. Walter Thompson in New York City. Hes always been, and to this day is, the hardest working man in the business, he says. He recalls that Mr. Patterson would go to his office early and work on his books from 6 to 9 a.m. Then, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., hed be the ad agencys executive creative director. I remember seeing a picture of him in Advertising Age in 1985, a photo of him with a stack of his books, maybe five (different titles.) They werent the huge bestsellers yet. Inspired, Mr. Grabenstein began writing his own series of murder mysteries set in the fictional New Jersey seaside town of Sea Haven, where an amusement part is a main attraction. Like Mr. Pattersons books, these were novels for adults. But why the amusement park? Mystery writers try to avoid the Cabot Cove Syndrome, he says, referring to the Murder She Wrote series where a murder occurred with frightening regularity in Jessica Fletchers coastal Maine town. It happened so often, you would think residents would Chris Grabenstein PITTMAN

Lutronix Inni say, Come on, lets get out of this town, someones dying every week. So I wanted to come up with a setting that had a transient population, he says. Plus, hes always had a fascination for amusement parks. His first book in that first series, Tilt a Whirl, won the Anthony Award and was named one of the best mysteries of 2005 by The Sun-Sentinel, the Detroit Free Press, the Christian Science Monitor, Barnes&Noble.com and BookBitch.com He eventually wrote eight books in the series, each one named after an amusement park ride or game (Whack a Mole, Mad Mouse, Fun House, for example.) Then he wrote a creepy ghost story about a haunted tree possessed by a demon of someone whod crashed into it, he says. Hed written 120,000 words when his editor read it and declared it would be perfect for readers ages 8 to 12 if you take the adult language and situations out and cut 70,000 words, he says. And Mr. Grabenstein, who has 20 nieces and nephews, thought: I might be able to write something my nieces and nephews could read! So he did it. It became the first book of his Crossroads series. I realized, Wow! Ive got this 12-yearold MAD magazine reader in my brain, he says.A team effort About 15 years after their time together at the ad agency, Mr. Grabenstein ran into his former boss, Mr. Patterson, at the West Palm Beach Day Academy (Mr. Pattersons son was in the class Mr. Grabenstein was speaking to). The two decided to give collaboration a try. To date, theyve written 16 books together. If its the first book in a series, Mr. Patterson will send him an 80-page outline. Mr. Grabenstein then sends back 10,000 words a month (toward a 40,000-word book). Then they talk on the phone and Mr. Grabenstein does rewrites. He is intimately involved in every one of those books, he says. Its terrific fun. Hes easy to work with. Hes taught me a lot over the years how to write. Hes my mentor. Mr. Grabenstein hasnt done too shabbily on his own, though. Both The Island of Dr. Libris and Escape From Mr. Lemoncellos Library were New York Times Bestsellers. The latter was followed by Mr. Lemoncellos Library Olympics and Mr. Lemoncellos Great Library Race. And Nickelodeon made a movie out of Escape From Mr. Lemoncellos Library. Set for release in the fall, it stars Casey Simpson (of Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn) and Breanna Yde (of School House Rock and The Haunted Hathaways).Florida memoriesHes never lived in Florida, but Mr. Grabensteins grandparents did, and his family would visit them every year in St. Petersburg. Images from those visits the heat in the car before air-conditioning became a standard feature, stopping on the road for cows to pass, his grandparents rambling house and old beach motels sho w up in his writing. The second book in Mr. Grabensteins Wonderland series is set to come out in May. Its a collection of all those wacky things I used to see: Gatorland in Orlando, roadside Americana statues and crazy things. Its the coolest retro motel you can imagine a struggling underdog place like the mom-and-pop roadside attractions Weeki-Wachee Springs, glass bottom boats, Frontier Town all those memories rolled into one. Mr. Grabenstein says hes still doing improv only now its on the page. Take whatever comes into your brain, dont deny it, take it and build on it, he says. Just put down whatever crazy thing comes into your imagination. Write down crazy stuff, then you can make connections. You never know where an idea will take you. When he and his wife flew out to Vancouver to see some of Escape From Mr. Lemoncellos Library being filmed, she was totally blown away, he says, adding she looked at all the actors and costumes and lighting and sets and crew and said in wonder, All these people are here because of that silly idea!

ARTS COMMENTARYLavish and loverly: The Naples Players present My Fair LadyThe news that two theaters in Naples, just blocks away from each other, would present the same show in the same season was initially met with consternation. But theatergoers and the venues themselves need not have worried. Gulfshore Playhouse (an Equity theater) and The Naples Players (a community theater) gave audiences two completely different experiences with their productions of Lerner and Loewes beloved My Fair Lady. Gulfshore Playhouse staged an innovative, minimalist production late last year. Ten actors played all the roles, and two pianists, one on each side of the state, provided all of the accompaniment. The Naples Players take a more traditional approach for their rendition. Its a big, lavish celebration of the classic musical with full sets, a cast of 32 and a 13-piece orchestra in the pit. Elizabeth Marcantonio as Eliza Doolittle makes a highly believable transformation from a lower-class girl selling flowers on the streets to a proper lady. You see the light going on in her brain when she finally grasps how to say, The rain in Spain falls mainly in the plane properly. And when she attends her first ball, she looks like a princess. (Kudos to costume designer Mary Wallace.) David Whalley is perfect as Col. Pickering, who enters into a bet with Professor Henry Higgins who claims he can transform a common girl into someone who can pass as royalty. The colonels kindness is a balm, and possibly the thing that transforms Eliza more than Professor Higgins relentless phonetic exercises. Dave Gipson excels as the professor. Id initially thought it odd casting, but its possibly Mr. Gipsons best role on the Sugden Community Theatre stage. His Professor Higgins is a character you love to hate: a bully, a tyrant, egotistical and arrogant to the extreme. He possesses an inflated view of himself and doesnt see his own shortcomings at all, insisting that hes a reasonable man, even-tempered, when hes obviously not. You love to see him get his comeuppance. Mary Jane Disco, making her Naples Players debut as his mother, Mrs. Higgins, does such a terrific job. I wish her role were bigger. The actress received well-deserved exit applause in one of her scenes and I cant wait to see her onstage again. And Brad Brenner as Alfred Doolittle, Elizas father, puts in a solid performance as the silver-tongued drunkard who suddenly finds himself elevated to the middle class. His two songs, With a Little Bit of Luck and Get Me to the Church On Time are joyous, full-out numbers that rock the house. However, there were times when I wish hed sacrificed accuracy of accent for clarity; it was sometimes difficult to decipher his extremely thick accent, especially when his characters slurring his words due to drunkenness. Also of note: Frank Scott Davis as Freddy Eynesford-Hill. His lovesick young man who swoons about in front of Professor Higgins house in hopes of catching a glimpse of Eliza delivers a sweet version of On the Street Where You Live. Charles Fornaras orchestra is superb accompaniment and doesnt overwhelm the singers at all. Hes done an excellent job with all the singers leads and ensemble members alike. The harmonizing at times is exquisite. Director and choreographer Dawn Lebrecht Fornara keeps this musical moving along, though it clocks in at almost three hours (typical of musicals of its era). Yet, the show never drags, thanks to staging and choreography so well done you have to keep reminding yourself these are not professional actors on stage. Ms. Fornara has single-handedly brought these local actors light years ahead of where they were just a few years ago, especially as dancers. Todd Potters two-level set of the professors study is filled with books and gramophone recording devices, an environment worthy of a man who buries himself in his work. My Fair Lady is a much-loved play, and tickets to this production are selling quickly. But watching it with a 21st century mentality can be a frustrating experience at times. The men are so misogynistic, especially Professor Higgins and Mr. Doolittle. The professor sees Eliza as merely an experiment and doesnt take her feelings into consideration, or even recognize that she has any. And both he and her father make comments about beating her or taking off a belt and whipping her into submission. The professor infantilizes Eliza, yet turns around and wonders why she cant be more like an equal, more like a man. Hes just an insufferable grump, an overgrown child. You get to feeling shed be better off without him and possibly, after the musical ends, you hope she has the wherewithal to leave him for good. Still, My Fair Lady is an interesting study in transformation, how knowledge and the kindness of others can change us for the better. Both Eliza and her father realize they can never return to the people they once were; theyve changed too much, they know too much now. Whether Professor Higgins has also been transformed remains to be seen. His big 11 oclock number, Ive Grown Accustomed to Her Face, is not exactly a ringing declaration of love. What woman would be thrilled to be told, Im used to having you around? It seems he still views their relationship in terms of how it affects him, how it will benefit him. He might have been temporarily humbled by Elizas leaving, but he still has a lot to learn. My Fair Lady is not only about gender relations but a look at class differences, too. The same people who think so little of Eliza when shes a poor girl peddling flowers esteem her when they think shes a member of high society or even possibly royalty. If you want to see My Fair Lady with a full cast and orchestration, this production is just your cup of tea.

The Irish declarer, Peter Pigot, got to four hearts doubled as shown after East, Benito Gar ozzo, opened with one club, showing 16 or more points. West led a spade, ruffed by Pigot, who returned the king of diamonds and discarded a spade from dummy. East took the ace and played another spade, ruffed again by declarer. Pigot now cashed the queen of diamonds, discarding dummys last spade, and made the key play of a low trump from his A-10-9, won by East with the queen. Gar ozzo could do no better than return a trump, won by South with the ace. After ruffing a diamond with dummys last trump, Pigot took a club finesse, which won, and led the J-10 of diamonds. West ruffed with his high trump and played still another spade, but Pigot ruffed and scored the last two tricks with the A-J of clubs to make four hearts doubled. Thus it was that South, with 17 points, scored 10 tricks, while East-West, with 23 points, scored only three. The outcome emphasizes that what counts in bridge is the number of tricks you can take and not the number of points you have. Point-count enthusiasts eventually learn from bitter experience that while high-card points are a valuable measuring rod, they are by no means an accurate barometer of how many tricks actually can be made.

Jackson) In 1973, a group of explorers encounter a giant ape and other creatures on a remote island in the South Pacific. The action and effects are impressive, but the story takes a turn for the worse in its second half. If you go, see it in IMAX 3D the visuals are tremendous. Rated PG-13.Before I Fall (Zoey Deutch, Halston Sage, Jennifer Beals) After dying in a car accident, a teenager wakes to relive the same day untilwell, thats what she needs to figure out. Its Groundhog Day as a teen girl drama, and though it has some intriguing ideas it plays out in pretty standard ways. Rated PG-13.Fist Fight (Ice Cube, Charlie Day, Tracy Morgan) A public high school teacher (Mr. Day) gets his colleague (Mr. Cube) fired after tattling on him after he destroyed a student-occupied desk with an axe. Its crass and unrealistic, but worst of all, its an unfunny mish mash of a high school that is truly out of this world. Rated R.The LEGO Batman Movie (Voices of Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Jenny Slate) Bruce Wayne/ Batman (Mr. Arnett) adopts an orphan (voice of Michael Cera) and fights The Joker (Mr. Galifianakis) and other Gotham City villains in this spinoff of The LEGO Movie (2014). Its more than DC Comics characters who come into play (Sauron, Voldemort, etc.), which is part of the fun and it is a heckuva lot of fun. Rated PG.The Comedian (Robert De Niro, Leslie Mann, Edie Falco) Struggling stand-up comic Jackie Burke (Mr. De Niro) bickers with his agent (Ms. Falco) and finds a kindred spirit in a woman he meets in a soup kitchen (Ms. Mann). The jokes are hit and miss, the story labors and ultimately, Jackie is too pigheaded to root for. Rated R.A Dogs Purpose (Britt Robertson, Dennis Quaid, voice of Josh Gad) The soul of a dog (Mr. Gad) is reincarnated over four lifetimes, touching different humans in the process. It might appeal to kids, but anyone else even dog lovers will find the manipulative, forced drama tough to stomach. Rated PG.20th Century Women (Annette Bening, Lucas Jade Zumann, Elle Fanning) In 1979, a singer mother (Ms. Bening) asks two female friends (Ms. Fanning and Greta Gerwig) to help her 15yearold son (Mr. Zumann) become a man. Ms. Bening leads the stellar ensemble in this wonderful coming of age story that sublimely captures the travails of adolescence and the spirit of the 0s. Dont miss it! Rated R.Silence (Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Liam Neeson) Director Martin Scorseses latest follows two priests (Mr. Garfield and Mr. Driver) as they travel to Japan to find their mentor (Mr. Neeson). It notably lacks Mr. Scorseses dynamic style, and as a result is a dull bore of 161 minutes. Rated R.

LATEST FILMSThe Sense of an EndingIs it worth $10? NoFor a movie that highlights the ending in its title, The Sense of an Ending doesnt have much of one. Its anticlimactic, if anything. This is especially disappointing because the rest of the Ritesh Batra (The Lunchbox) directed film deserves better. For most of the 108 minute running time we are intrigued by the personal history of its protagonist, and the cloudy memory that distorts his recollection. It lends itself to a fascinating guessing game of where itll go next, only to find out the destination leaves something to be desired. Living in London, Tony Webster is a churlish, impatient malcontent. Because hes played with endearing vulnerability by Oscarwinner Jim Broadbent (Iris), we like him anyway. Hes divorced from Margaret (Harriet Walter), and his daughter Susie (Michelle Dockery) is pregnant with no father in the picture. But theyre not the source of Tonys distress. That comes when he gets a letter from Sarah Ford (Emily Mortimer), whose daughter Veronica (played by Charlotte Rampling when older) dated Tony 40 years earlier. Theres a diary from Tonys old school chum, Adrian (Joe Alwyn) that was left to Tony but is in Veronicas possession. Getting the diary, and subsequently whats in it, comprise the bulk of the story. For perspective, we also have flashbacks to young Tony (Billy Howle) and Veronica (Freya Mavor) dating, and see how Adrian came into their lives. These flashbacks are welcome and essential, as they add perspective to the present day and allow the films overall narrative to build in tension. And to be sure, there are twists along the way that keep us on our toes, but the script by Nick Payne (based on the book by Julian Barnes) is careful to never turn into a soap opera. Whats compelling here is the way Batra plays with memory, and how our emotions sometimes sanitize unsavory events to make us feel not so horrible about them. This makes sense as an instinct of self-preservation, but it also welcomes delusion, and one of the films shortcomings is that there arent more consequences for Tonys misremembering. Relatedly, Paynes script recognizes that we cannot know exact truths unless we experienced them ourselves, and even then there are the sugarcoated memories in play. This is an important theme, as what Tony recalls happening in the past is directly related to what were seeing in the present. If only Batra did more with these themes besides present them, make us consider them, and then ultimately render them moot. The elements in The Sense of an Ending are fodder for a better movie than what we get, making it a wasted opportunity to create a piece of art that truly r esonates. Broadbent, Rampling and the rest of the cast are fine, but theres only so much they can provide when the story doesnt do them justice. e e a i w f m dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Rampling received a Best Actress Oscar nomination for Years (2015), which was also about a prior relationship that comes back to haunt her character years later.

It depicted a little fat man holding a mug. It could not have been more than 3 inches high and, though crudely painted, had the most beautiful cobalt blue glaze on its coat. I found it in an antiques shop in North Fort Myers and probably still have it somewhere, if I dig around. I thought it was an antique at the time, but it was marked England, so I know now that it was made after the 1890s and would not have been considered an antique at the time. Ah, the things you learn. Im sure my fascination with pieces like that stemmed from my love of history. It didnt hurt that Maas SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Toby jug is elaborately painted. It has a wishbone-shaped handle and one can pour from the pitcher the lady is holding.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 16-22, 2017 C17 The place: Resale Therapy, 4595 N orthlake Blvd, Palm Beach Gardens; (561) 691-4590 or www. resaletherapyshoppe.com. Cost: $20 The skinny: The experts I know were pretty evenly divided as to whether this jug was made in England or Germany. Typically, the English marks are clearly defined, especially on later 19th century pieces such as this ample lady, who sits with a jug on her knee ready to pour milk. This bears no marking, other than an impressed CF on its bottom. That marking could indicate Charles Ford, who was in business in England between 1874 and 1904, according to ThePotteries. org, which gives a history of Stoke-onTrent and Staffordshire, where so many English wares were made. I was worried that it was a reproduction. The bottom is immaculate, with none of the marks one would associate with something that had a century of use. It has honest wear, said my friend, Jacksonville antiques dealer Jim Antone, who also manages the floor at the West Palm Beach Antiques Festival. He noted that the gold trim on the wishbone-shaped handle was slightly worn, though the rest of the piece was immaculate. No matter, the piece has a great look and looks great with my collection of English porcelains and ceramics. THE FIND:A Toby jugBrothers, Jordan Marsh, Burdines and other department stores of the day carried Royal Doulton mugs depicting historical characters, including British monarchs. The mugs depicting Henry VIII and his six wives especially appealed to me after I had seen Glenda Jackson in the Elizabeth R TV series in the early 0s the mugs depicting Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard bore handles in the shape of axes as a reminder of their fates. Those pieces were vividly painted and caught my 10-year-old eye, but were out of my price range. They were new, but from a tradition that dated back to the mid-18th century. Toby jugs, also known as Fillpots or Philpots, usually had the form of a seated person holding a vessel from which liquid could be poured. Toby mugs usually were just the head, and often were caricatures of real folks. And the name? Most likely, it was named after a notorious 18th century Yorkshire drinker, Henry Elwes, who was known as Toby Fillpot (or Philpot) and was inspired by an old English drinking song, The Brown Jug, which paid tribute to Toby Fillpot, whose ashes were made into Tobys jug, according to the American Toby Jug Museums website.

That would be the most frustrating thing ever as a songwriter or band to have to sing music that you just cant identify with but that are the songs people want to hear. Thats the ultimate worst. It means nothing to you. Mr. Smith, who comes from northwest Texas, is joined by fiddler Bennett Brown, guitarist Tim Allen, bass player Chase Satterwhite and percussionist Bryan McGrath, all of whom have been beating down a demanding tour that has taken them as far afield as Malaysia. It was an extremely cool experience, he says, encountering a different culture that embraced and enjoyed the bands Americana sound. Rural communities in the U.S. however, seem to have the most enthusiastic response to The Saints work, he adds. You can tell that their only source to finding music is mainstream radio theyre a little more taken away with our shows because were so different. I dont know that tons of bands end up in Atwood, Kan., and so you can see a difference of reaction in places like that. Shane Smith and The Saints will also be joined by local favorite, The Good Bad Kids, for a show that elevates American roots music to a fever pitch. Naples City Limits is the second part of a fundraiser for the Childrens Advocacy Center of Collier County, which works to improve the lives of abused children. Preceding the concert is the organizations 21st annual Beach Ball, starting at 5 p.m. in a tent adjacent to the concert site. Guests will enjoy a Fiji-themed gala with food from Lurcat Catering, specialty beverages, raffles and a live auction (among the action lots: four-nights at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival with luxury accommodations, and two tickets to a sold-out Lady Gaga concert in Tampa).

BREWERY & TAP ROOM These Shining Lives sheds light on the Radium Girls of the 1920s BY PATRICE SHIELDSSpecial to Florida WeeklyIn recognition of Womens History Month, The Naples Players present Melanie Marnichs historical drama, These Shining Lives, March 22-April 15 in the Tobye Studio at the Sugden Community Theatre. Jessica Walck directs. Set in the 1920s at the factory Radium Dial on the outskirts of Chicago, the play is inspired by the true story of the young women, now remembered as The Radium Girls, who were poisoned by the luminous paint they applied to numbers on the faces of clocks and watches. The uplifting but ominous story chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day. The story follows Catherine (Jamielynn Bucci), a young mother who is happily married to her ironworker husband Tom (Jesse Hughes). Catherine opens the play with the lines that are both hopeful and foreboding: This isnt a fairy tale, though it starts like one. Its not a tragedy, though it ends like one. Catherine takes a job in a local watch factory to help make ends meet at home and meets Pearl (Amy Hughes), the incessant jokester; Frances (Katherine Oni), the moral backbone; and sharp-tongued Charlotte (Jasmine Vizena), the brutally honest one of the group. As the women happily paint watch dials with radium, sharpening the point of their brushes between their lips to accurately apply the radium to the dials, they become the best of friends. When they start to notice the unusual effects of working with radium, the women are quickly reassured by the factory foreman Mr. Reed (Mark Vanagas) that radium is in no way harmful and might in fact have health benefits. And when they begin to succumb to the devastating effects of radium, the company refuses to acknowledge the issue and begins to systematically fire them when their illnesses interfere with their work. Though critically ill, the women choose to stand up and fight for justice. These women and their strength still shine brightly today and their resilient efforts for justice set in motion workplace safety standards and workers compensation, introduced to protect future generations.

Island Theater Companys latest promises to fetch lots of laughsThe Island Theater Company on Marco presents the contemporary adult comedy Men Are Dogs March 16-20 and April 19-23 at the Marco Island Historical Museum. Playwright Joseph Simonella will attend the 7:30 p.m. shows on April 20 and 22 and conduct a talkback with the audience after each performance.The play stars Diana Back as Cecelia, a successful psychologist who, among many sessions, runs a support group for single and divorced women. Shes got troubles of her own, but its her ensemble of neurotic patients who provide the action when a volunteer role-player becomes the hapless victim of their not-inconsiderable ire. Judy Daye has the role of Rose, Cecelias fun-loving live-in mom who offers her daughter unsolicited dating advice. Ray Kane plays the substitute postal deliveryman who strikes up a relationship with Cecelia. John Moulton is Tony, a divorced, pompous, part-time actor hired by Cecelia to role-play with her patients. Abby Yetter plays Allison, a hairdresser and the latest addition to Cecelias group. Another member of the group is Madeline, is played by Carol Clark. Madeline is a comically dark, angry woman who has been burned way too many times.Maria Tobin plays Jane, a member of the group who is a bit of a dim light bulb and often misses the meaning of things going on around her. And Monico Sooy plays Loretta, the wild child who adds plenty of spark to every group meeting. Ann Megna directs Men Are Dogs for the Island Theater Company.

CELEBRITY EXTRASeries starring singer Jewel returns in April on Hallmark BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: Last year I saw a movie on cable that starred Jewel, the singer, and she solved a murder mystery. It was based on a book series, so I was wondering if they were planning to make the movies into a series. Lyla F., via emailA: You are talking about Hallmark Movies and Mysteries Fixer Upper Mysteries, which are based on best-selling author Kate Carlisles book series. I am happy to report that because of record-breaking viewing numbers, there will be more installments coming your way. The second movie is Concrete Evidence: A Fixer Upper Mystery, and it premieres Sunday, April 2, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. I spoke with Jewel recently about the series, and she is thrilled to return to the role of Shannon Hughes. Shannon is a woman who once didnt trust her intuition, and it cost her very dearly with her mother, and she made a promise to herself to never ignore her intuition again. And her fight is really every womans fight, every humans right, which is to speak up for your inner knowing and what you know is right and act on that. It was so synergistic with the platform that Im building (with jewelneverbroken.com), and getting to act a character whos actually trying to live the same thing was a real fun opportunity. Jewel also sees parallels between acting and being a singer/songwriter/poet: While there are definitely different aspects of the craft, the way I find my way into it is pretty similar. I wasnt formally taught music; I taught myself guitar, and you teach yourself songwriting same thing with poetry. Q: Do you know when Game of Thrones will be back? Usually its around April or May, but I havent heard anything. George A. in Rhode IslandA: HBO has pushed back the premiere a few months. While there is not an exact date as of this writing, word has it that season seven will premiere in July. Dont forget, season seven will have only seven episodes, with the eighth and final season rumored to have just six. Q: A few months back, I heard about a new Bill Nye science show. Can you give me any more information on that? Kelli T., via emailA: Bill Nye Saves the World drops April 21 on Netflix. Each episode will tackle a topic from a scientific point of view, dispelling myths and refuting anti-scientific claims that may be espoused by politicians, religious leaders or titans of industry.

Winemakers want to get their products in front of the public. Some companies advertise their wares on television, or radio or in newspapers. Wine producers have different strategies. One of the great things about being a journalist in general and a wine journalist in particular is that wineries and their public relations firms send out sample bottles, in the hope that we will evaluate the wines and recommend them to our readers. As you know, I do that faithfully in this space twice a month. However, the supply far exceeds the space Im given, as well as the lamentable infrequency of my column, so bottles tend to stack up in the cellar, awaiting my attention and evaluation. The backlog recently got so large I invited some very knowledgeable and discriminating wine friends over for a massive tasting session, where we sampled, critically discussed and rated about 20 different wines. We were very happy when we finished. So this column is a kind of catch up piece, where Im listing several wines we particularly enjoyed. I hope you like them as well as we did. And please persist to the Q&A at the end its an especially interesting topic. Matanzas Creek Merlot Sonoma 2013 ($30) A full-bodied effort, dark ruby in the glass and bold aromas of chocolate and red fruit. Very fruit forward, and certainly a great food wine. WW 90-91. Avignonesi Rosso di Montalcino 2014 ($17) This baby Brunello would be great with grilled meats. Medium-bodied on the palate, flavors of red currant, cherry, and violets. WW 89. Concannon Petite Sirah 2014 ($11) Great value, and a steal at the price. A big, dark, black wine in the glass, it delivers aromas of warm earth and smoke, but fruit flavors on the palate. Youll enjoy the complexity of the blackberry, raspberry, black pepper, baking chocolate and mushroom. Lovely. WW 89-90.Bousquet Malbec Tupungato Valley Mendoza Grande Riserva 2013 ($25) A wine thats very much about the place and the soil an Old World style. Bold flavors of earth, truffle and black tobacco. WW 88.Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay Grand Reserve 2015 ($14) From the middle-range of the KJ portfolio, this is a great everyday sipper. Medium bodied, with balanced oak notes supporting apple and lemon flavors. WW 87-88 Meomi Chardonnay California 2015 ($13) Grapes are blended from three very diverse regions in this wine. Its bold and creamy with a buttery mouthfeel and an entertaining hint of butter ed popcorn. Straightforward flavors of pear and white peach. WW 88.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: Ive read some articles recently about vegan wines. Can you clarify what this terms means? Harris G., Port St. LucieA: This isnt the first question Ive received about the issue of so-called vegan wines. This term is starting to enter the vocabulary of the wine world, and theres a lot of confusion about it. So let me try to answer it in some detail. Wine is made from fruit, which is about as vegan as things get. What could there possibly be in the bottle that comes from animals? Well, it turns out there are two things. Often, wine is put through a process called fining. This is a way to clarify the liquid and get rid of any floating fruit solids that remain after fermentation and the racking of the wine from the big vats into smaller barrels. Fining involves putting some substance in the wine thats heavier than the liquid. It settles to the bottom, taking the particles with it. For centuries winemakers have used either gelatin or egg whites as fining agents. Both are derived from animal products, and thats what has the vegans on edge. More recently, many winemakers use another pure inert material such as bentonite, which is a clay formed by the weathering of volcanic ash. So its a mineral. It also has a strong negative charge, so it pulls impurities toward it. The problem is that while some bottle labels will tell you the product is unfiltered and unfined, it will never tell you whether it was fined or what kind of fining agent was used. So the concept of vegan wines will remain somewhat problematic, at least for the time being. Jerry Greenfield is the Wine Whisperer. He is also the creative director of Greenfield Advertising Group.

CUISINEAntica Trattoria chef honors his southern Italian roots Early last summer, I pulled into Antica Trattoria on Bonita Beach Road in the middle of a rainstorm. The parking lot was deserted, the front door was open and the tables were unoccupied. Not good omens, obviously, but it was too late to turn around and find another restaurant to review.So, we sat down and ordered glasses of wine. Thats when the server told us: They were closing for summer the next day. Chef-owner Antonio Scotto insisted on cooking for us anyway and encouraged us to return in the fall. I cant remember what he served us from his diminished pantry, but it was good, wholesome Italian food and the hospitality and integrity mattered more than the specific dish.I do remember the chef bemoaning the fact that most customers wanted the familiar, tried-and-true dishes parmigiana, picatta, puttanesca while he yearned to celebrate his culinary roots in the coastal Campania region of southwestern Italy. He vowed to represent the region when he came back after the summer hiatus. True to his word, Mr. Scotto has a full complement of chefs selections on his current menu. He pays homage to the rustic pleasures of braised rabbit (must be ordered two days in advance), sauted beef tripe, beef braciola and grilled octopus with cannellini. The nine selections allow him to satisfy his soul while placating the predictable American palate with the rest of the menu. There are chicken and veal dishes prepared in seven variations, seven basic pasta dishes and a few baked ones, and a halfdozen seafood entrees. The door once again was open when we arrived on a Friday night a sign of welcome or is the air conditioning not functioning properly? The story inside this time was different. There were numerous parties eating and continuing to come in. Chef Scotto and another cook were busy in the open kitchen, and the staff appeared to be struggling a bit to keep up. Located in a former fast food restaurant between U.S. 41 and the beach since 2015, Antica Trattoria has an open, casual feel with lots of natural light. Tables are well spaced apart in the ivory, black and burgundy dining area. The restaurant serves only beer and wine, and the selections could stand to be expanded. If you only want a glass of the grape, you have to settle for house wine. Our Pinot Noir was $8 a glass and just OK. Bottle options run a reasonable $22-$95 and favor Italians with just a few California products. First to arrive were big yeasty rolls slick with butter and with just a hint of garlic a nice change from the usual garlic knots or crusty bread. From the short list of appetizers, we zeroed in on mussels Vesuvio ($8). The dozen glossy black shellfish all opened to reveal plump, tender mussels within. They were sauted in a simple sauce of cherry tomatoes and garlic and served atop slices of toasted bread that soaked up some of the sweet sauce. With the name Vesuvio, I was expecting a pop of heat, perhaps from crushed red pepper, but that was not the case. Nevertheless, the sauce was a flavorful pairing for the shellfish.The fried zucchini planks ($9) were very lightly battered, almost like tempura, and dusted with Parmesan. They were obviously hand cut, not out of a freezer like your typical chain restaurant. Tossed in for good measure were bitesized potato croquettes that were crispy on the outside and creamy within. A thin tomato sauce was provided for dipping. House salads were included, and they were composed of fresh greens with red pepper slivers, shredded carrot and black olives. As regular readers know, we eat at a lot of Italian restaurants because they just keep proliferating. Mr. Scotto is making the effort to offer something beyond the usual Italian-American repertoire, so we decided to focus on his chefs selections for our main course. The Polipo al Tegamo ($24) features octopus, which seems to be enjoying a moment in the culinary spotlight after decades of indifference in America. Here its gently simmered in a fresh cherry-tomato sauce seasoned with a bit of garlic, wine and fresh basil. Slow cooking renders the leg meat incredibly tender and imbues it with mouthwatering tomato flavor. A generous portion is ladled over cavatelli pasta for a delicious and hearty entree.Another chefs selection, Granchio e Gamberi all Nerone ($26), showcased some of our local waters treasures. Hefty chunks of jumbo lump crabmeat and three grilled jumbo shrimp were tucked into a bed of lentil polenta, a smooth puree with a mild flavor that played a strong supporting role for the dish. The main attraction, of course, was the crab and perfectly grilled shell-on shrimp. The only fault with this entre: dollops of pesto that had the bitter taste of old or jarred basil sauce. There was fresh basil on the premises we saw the chef plucking leaves for garnish from a plant kept on the kitchen counter. Considering the care taken with the dishs other ingredients, its hard to understand the misstep.Mr. Scottos wife, Claudia Plaza, is the pastry chef behind such delights as a pear and dark chocolate tart, complete with buttery crust, and flaky, pastrycrme-stuffed Napoleon ($7 each). Go ahead and indulge.

Kalea Bay releases second tower as first tower approaches selloutPrices start at $1.3 million in Tower 1Kalea Bay, the gated, resortlifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, announced the communitys second tower has been released for sale. Our first tower, which is under construction and scheduled to be completed this fall, has already surpassed the 80 percent sold mark, stated Inga Wilson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to release Tower 2. The new 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. The incredibly designed residences offer views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine nature preserve. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans also with 3,791 total square feet. All residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Wilson. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Wilson. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Wilson said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Wilson. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Dramatic views are available to every homeowner, no matter which floor they live on as the towers amenities are located on the rooftop including the 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 two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million. In addition to the rooftop amenities, the residents of Kalea Bay will also enjoy the communitys clubhouse area, which is also under construction and due to be completed this fall. The clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Wilson. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot 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, a poolside bistro, open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a sundries shop, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. 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 will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. The amenities at Kalea Bay rival some of the finest in the world, said Wilson. Our 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. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as pickleball courts, and 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 our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Wilson. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, two-tenths of a mile.
