Collier Harvest and its partner organizations work to Stamp Out Hunger BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.comApple CEO Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone in April 2007. Now most of us cannot imagine a day without one. That same month, a potent little package of newsprint and smart design put its first edition on the streets and online. It was Fort Myers Florida Weekly. In the 10 years since, weve added six more editions, serving Naples, Bonita Springs, Charlotte County, Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens and Key West. Heres a brief look at what else weve done: Weve published 2,509 newspapers, or 167,598 unique newspaper pages, as of last week. Weve kept the recycling plants busy in the process, printing 2.3 billion pages of newsprint. Weve also taken a lot of pictures of people out and about in our markets. To be precise, 256,051 people have had their photos published in our Society and Networking pages over the years. Our writers and editors dont get to sit around. Theyve produced 102,049 stories, columns and community briefs and won 139 journalism awards. But the only number that matters to us is 211,000. Thats the number of readers we touch every week. Thanks for reading Florida Weekly. We hope you cant imagine a week without it. 4 F Collier H Co ollier erH H r H Co C H H o Harvest and its and its arves est s st dits st Harv a V Vo Vo Vo Vo Vo o Vo o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o Vo o o l l. l. l . l l l l. l l l l l I I X X, N o. 2 4 Collier Harvest volunteers sort the haul collected by letter carriers during last years Stamp Out Hunger food drive. need: Feeding the ood insecurity.

MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA & TARPON INQUIRE ABOUT COMPLIMENTARY IN-HOME DESIGN SERVICES roger COMMENTARYThe privateer legislatorsLets glamorize. Lets accessorize, maximize, utilize and even tenderize. But lets not privatize, especially public education. When it comes to government, which of necessity bears burdens foreign to business, to privatize has become a euphemism not to be more efficient but to shirk. It no longer means tightening up, if it ever did. Instead, it means giving the ball to contractors and letting them run with it because we cant or dont want to. As a principle, privatize does not recognize the first and greatest obligation of the Red, White & Blue: not just to be measured by business standards (to make as much out of as little as possible) but by American standards. Americans include all citizens from slow to quick and poor to rich; we give every citizen an equal opportunity. Thats our legacy, or what should be our legacy. At our best, we are not a people bent first on profit. Business owners typically do not work to make the world or the country better as a primary goal. Instead, they aim to profit first by running a government operation cheaply. Like a prison. Or trash collection. Or road-building. Or, like public education. But public education is nothing like jails or roads or trash. This year, nowhere is official shirking more evident in Florida than in a new push by some legislators not only to create more new charter schools (there are roughly 650 in the state), but to close down public schools at the same time. Already, Florida has given $760 million to charter operators since 2000, $70 million of which went to capital costs for schools now closed, according to an Associated Press look at the numbers. Now, Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran and Rep. Manny Diaz Jr. hes chair of the education budget committee want to give $200 million more of the states already over-stretched education money to entrepreneurs who would build and run the new schools. The plan calls for the state to close failing public schools in those communities of mostly poor black and Hispanic students places castigated by Rep. Corcoran as failure factories. No doubt he knows theyre failure factories because hes spent so much time there observing, in order to make informed decisions. The select charters, beneficiaries of this state largesse, would create Schools of Hope. It amounts to this: Reps. Corcoran and Diaz would give the po folk hope rather than fixing the problem with good leadership, and the $200 million theyre siphoning off the public schools budget.A tough-talking, skeet-shooting, cigarchomping Republican celebrated and supported by Koch Brothers campaign contributions, Rep. Corcoran an attorney himself is married to a lawyer who founded a successful Pasco County charter school. Called Classical Preparatory School for students in kindergarten through the 10th grade, it will soon expand to include more students, as many as 1,000 in K through 12, according to its website. Money for that expansion could come from another of three bills now under consideration in legislative committees in Tallahassee this session, all supported by Rep. Corcoran. Each bill is designed to open public school coffers even wider to the anomaly called charter. As it happens, not only could Rep. Corcorans family charter benefit, but Rep. Diaz could benefit as well: Hes the chief operating officer of an unaccredited college, Doral, run by a company that manages charter schools; his salary is $111,000, his financial disclosure records show. Rep. Diaz spent years in public education as a teacher and principal before becoming a politician, then declaring bankruptcy in 2012 and legally escaping a debt of $1.3 million in 2013, the Miami Herald has reported. That was a month before being hired by Doral and the charter-schools company Academica (maybe they dont know how to spell the real word, academia). Charters may be many things, some bad and some good, but they are not truly one thing: public schools. Whether for-profit or not-for-profit, charters can sidestep standards that define public schools (the degree they sidestep depends on local governments, including school boards). These standards, for example. One for all and all for one: Public schools have to take everybody, and they have to find a way to make it work for individuals, including physically or mentally disabled kids. Everybody contributes. All taxpayers help make public schools work. Transparency: Public schools are run with public money by voters and taxpayers, who elect other voters and taxpayers to manage the school system and answer to them. Every record must be transparent, from state records to those of the smallest elementary school, as blogger Peter Greene, a longtime Pennsylv ania teacher, points out ( A public school system, he says, is one of the last bastions of participatory democracy. Businesses and contractors, by the way, are not participatory democracies. Heres the point I hope every voter and every legislator remembers: Public education, free to students, is the greatest public glory of the United States. Public education is the magnificent promise of America that says to every child ever born or raised within our borders: You will have a decent chance because we are all, all of us Americans, your parents. We are all, all of us Americans, your advocates. Public education is our most ambitious space venture, our most formidable army, our most powerful defense against anything, natural or manufactured. Giving public money to any private schools, even when theyre called charter and even if theyre wonderful places, is a betrayal of that promise.

He said empty talk was over and the hour of action arrived. Under his administration, there would be no more failed schools, excessive regulation, rampant crime, and industries ravaged by globalism. American carnage would end. Economic nationalism would erase the excesses of liberalism. He would put American interests above all others, deport 11 million undocumented immigrants, enact a Muslim ban, extricate the nation from global alliances, declare trade wars, unleash the free market, dismantle climate-change initiatives and build our military to further exert American dominance in the world. And that was just for starters. The new president put friend and foe alike on notice: A new sheriff was in town. It was a historical moment. In one fell swoop, a peaceful transfer of power occurred, simultaneously casting the dark shadow of the Trump presidency across the globe. The tumultuous election will be the subject of shock and awe for decades to come. It has been like no other and hindsight is not yet a bridge toward rebuilding consensus. But there is one issue on which we all agree: Trumps presidency changes everything. His election might have been less nation-altering. But it delivered a devastating rebuke to the Democratic opposition. Angry, fearful voters delivered the White House to Republican control and sustained conservative majorities in both houses of Congress. There is no higher hand in the game of national politics. One-party control wins the pot. The country music star Kenny Rogers sang a song about gambling and lessons learned from winning and losing in a high-stakes game. In it, the gambler advises, When you are out of aces, you gotta know what to throw away and what to keep. This is the plight of the Democratic Party in the aftermath of its losing hand. The New York Times reported, in the past seven decades, Republicans previously controlled all three branches of government for a grand total of six years: two of those years during the presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower and the balance under George W. Bush. This rarity is now the status quo, elevating President Trump to his station as the most powerful man on Earth. Imagine you inhabit the dystopian world devised by President Trump. He says only he can fix it. By the inflation of his supremacy, he presumes supernumerary powers. He holds no concept of accountability. Out of the hellish pits of Washingtons Mount Doom, he forges the political equivalent of One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness, bind them. With its power, he is lord of all. The myth of the One Ring and its prophetic powers are a major theme of J.R.R. Tolkiens book, The Lord of the Rings. The tale goes like this: The Dark Lord Sauron forges the One Ring to achieve unfettered rule over the free people of Middle-earth. Saurons ring is more powerful than all other Rings of Power. It makes him omnipotent. But there is a catch. Sauron invests so much of his own power to create the ring he exposes himself to a fatal vulnerability. He remains all-powerful only for so long as the One Ring exists. It can be destroyed and Sauron with it, but only at great risk to those who try. Its ticklish. The One Ring is dangerous. It corrupts those possessing it, no matter their purity of heart. Thus, begins the quest of Frodo, the Hobbit. He is chosen to be the ring bearer of the One Ring and to whom falls the task of the rings destruction. Read the book to learn its ending. Or you just ask your grandkids. But heres the takeaway: Power accrued by and invested in a Dark Lord is an endangerment of sobering proportions to all humankind, Hobbits and the creatures of Middle-earth. If this kind of fantastical tale appeals, then events unfolding in Washington are spellbinding. It is the first chapter of the Trump administration. His policies and legislative agenda are being rolled out with the support of the Republican majority. Republicans have waited a long time for this moment. They are excited to make conservative dreams come true. Repeal and Replace Obamacare is at the top of their list. Nonetheless, the minions on this mission have, so far, failed miserably, despite having had plenty of practice. The Affordable Care Act survives. President Trump blames the Democrats. If you find this convincing, you still believe an unfit and unqualified candidate for president was the safest choice. During all legislative chaos, the spirit of Frodo stirred to life. But it is wont be enough to secure us from the threats and dangers of One Ring to rule them all. Until citizens of this country reclaim the moral high ground and the democratic principles and values for which it stands, the malevolent forces set loose in the nation will go unchecked. Email Leslie Lilly at and read past blog posts on Tumblr at Obamacare, a partywide failureTheres stumbling out of the gate, and then theres what Republicans just did on health care. They came up with a substantively indefensible bill, put it on an absurd fast track to passage, didnt seriously try to sell it to the public, fumbled their internal negotiations over changes and suffered a stinging defeat months after establishing unified control of government. There has been a lot of finger-pointing after the collapse of the bill, and almost all of it is right. This was a partywide failure. House Speaker Paul Ryan has faint praise thought more about health care policy than almost any other elected Republican. He rose to prominence with thoughtful policy proposals buttressed by PowerPoint presentations. This was his moment to shine as a wonk. Instead, with an eye to procedural constraints the legislation would face in the Senate, he wrote a mess of a bill that got failing grades from analysts across the political spectrum. The operating theory wasnt that the merits of the bill would get it over the top, but speed and sheer partisan muscle. The House wanted to pass it in three weeks, which would be a rush for a bill naming a courthouse. Ryan gambled that he could get his fractious caucus to rally in record time because unlike his frustrated predecessor as speaker, John Boehner he had a president of his own party at his back. And none other than the closer, a President Donald Trump whose calling card is his skill at dealmaking. For their part, Ryan and Trump are united in blaming the House Freedom Caucus, the recalcitrant group of conservatives that destroyed Boehners speakership and have made a good start at ruining Ryans. The Freedom Caucus is certainly prone to self-defeating purity, but in this case when they said the bill wouldnt fully repeal Obamacare or do enough to reduce premiums, they were correct. The bill shed support on both the right and the left because of its underlying weakness (its hard to get anyone to back a bill with a 17 percent approval rating, per a Quinnipiac poll). Perhaps most unforgivably, the White House and congressional Republicans now have decided to move on. Tax reform beckons. Republicans tell themselves they will get better results on taxes because it is more natural terrain for the party, an implicit concession that the GOP even after electing a populist president still cant bring itself to engage on kitchen-table issues that dont involve tax cuts. Perhaps the initial tax legislation will start in a better place, the process will be more deliberate, and President Trump will get immersed more readily in something (the tax code) central to his business dealings. But tax reform is more popular in theory than it is in practice. It requires painful trade-offs and is vulnerable to the political critique that it favors the wealthy and corporations over working people. If tax reform is going to pass and get signed into law, Republicans will have to perform much better than in the foreshortened health care debate. On the bright side, they cant perform much worse.

PROFILE IN PARADISEHuge risk turns into the foundation of a big successIf anyone can take credit for reshaping Southwest Floridas luxury new home market during the boom and after the bust, Mark Wilson is high on the list. He founded Naples London Bay Homes in 1990 aimed at introducing the high design, innovation and personalized customer experience he felt the market was lacking at the time. And as others fled the industry during the housing collapse, Mr. Wilson and London Bay Homes made a concerted effort to take advantage of a very distressed market to buy assets at historical lows. The two largest acquisitions were Mediterra in Naples and The Founders Club in Sarasota. Combined, this gave the company 200-plus lots positioned in two of the best communities in their respective markets. It was a huge risk, but it paid off. Mr. Wilson and London Bay Homes were buying when virtually no one was buying. The company now employs a staff of 120 its most ever and many of the Naples area model homes it has built since 2012 have sold before or shortly after completion. Thats in addition to continued and considerable growth working with private clients. The company currently has more than 87 homes in the construction or design phase. Mr. Wilson, a native of England and the son of a commercial builder, has a background in engineering and reflected on the topic of real estate investment in the U.S. for his MBA thesis. Since being named Americas Best Builder in 2008 by Builder magazine, his insistence on innovation and always thinking ahead has earned London Bay Homes numerous national, regional and local awards for its building and design expertise. Mr. Wilson also supports the community that has so welcomingly supported him for 26 years, giving back to various charitable organizations, including Golisano Childrens Hospital, Guadalupe Center and the Childrens Museum of Naples. Something thats been on your mind: The current state of American politics.Something your mother was always right about: Being an individual. Dont follow the crowd.First job: I was a construction laborer in Birmingham, England.What would you be doing if you werent doing this? Traveling six months of the year.Guilty pleasures: Traveling and dining out.One thing on your bucket list: Mount Everest Base CampSkill or talent you wish you had: The ability to draw and sketch really well.Advice for someone just starting in your line of work: Work harder and smarter than 95 percent of the people around you. Stay committed to your goals and review them on a regular basis. Pet peeve: Inconsiderate people.Something people would be surprised to nd out about you: I contemplated becoming an Outward Bound instructor for a year or two. What are you most proud of?

My American vodka beats the giant imports every day. Try American! Its better.


A8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 6-12, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY SEE FEEDING, A10 a country that wastes billions of pounds of food each year, its almost shocking that anyone in America goes hungry, the organizations website states. It was precisely that wasted food that launched Collier Harvest 25 years ago. As Bert Paradis dined in a local Morrisons Cafeteria, he recalled his years back in Louisville, Ky., where he did charitable work for an organization dedicated to feeding the hungry. The memory was triggered when he noticed a Morrisons employee throwing out a tray of cooked green beans and replacing it with a fresher one. Although most diners would appreciate such a m ove, Mr. Paradis viewed it quite differently. It was a food abomination. Perfectly good food was on its way to the Dumpster nourishment that someone in need, perhaps a food-insecure family, would welcome. That one thing, a mundane chore performed dozens of times a day at that one cafeteria one performed countless times a day in the innumerable food purveyors in Collier County sparked the idea that marked the genesis of Collier Harvest. In the quarter-century since then, Collier Harvest, dedicated to feeding the hungry in Collier County since 1992, has collected and redistributed 17.4 million pounds of food in the area alone. According to Feeding America, that amounts to 14.5 million meals. Thats a lot of hash to sling for an organization run by its executive director, two part-time employees and their team of about 90 volunteers. Coincidentally and fortuitously, at the same time Mr. Paradis ignited the flame that would become Collier Harvest, the National Association of Letter Carriers launched its annual food drive in Collier County, collecting foodstuffs from residents left at their mailboxes on a select spring day. This years Stamp Out Hunger drive is Saturday, May 13, when hundreds of volunteers will be on hand to sort and pack food collected by the carriers. Anyone who would like to volunteer on that heavy-traffic day of incoming food is invited to participate. The food arrives by mail carriers (most followed along their route by a volunteer in a van or pickup to help collect and transport the donations) at Collier Harvests warehouse in Naples. Volunteer hours for sorting food are 1-7 p.m., and the hours of greatest need are 3-7 p.m. To be clear, Collier Harvests three employees and 90-plus volunteers are not sweating over warming bins and serving meals of mashed potatoes, stewed veggies and beef with gravy. They are feeding the communitys hungry its food insecure through a highly effective network of partners who reach Collier County residents at churches, schools, community center and more from North Naples to Immokalee to Everglades City. The foods consist of nonperishable, preferably high-protein goods to nourish recipients who are, or are at risk of, going hungry. Some of the food is donated by retail and restaurant partners. Some is the result of food drives in schools, businesses, churches and other civic organizations. And Collier Harvest also regularly applies for grants and receives monetary donations from within the community to make it possible for them to purchase food at a significant discount to augment the supply of donated goods. Working with retailers such as Publix, Costco, Aldi, Sams Club and Fresh Market, more food is secured to allow Collier Harvest to continue gleaning its crop of staples for those in need. This time of year is particularly critical, as seasonal residents leave for the summer. And that makes the impetus of the May 13 Stamp Out Hunger effort that much more important, because the focus is to continue supplying food for Collier Countys hungry through the summer months, when the county population dwindles by about 25 percent, according to Collier County statistics.Collier Harvest: a basic overviewExecutive director Connie Preu, volunteer coordinator Carol Harris and database administrator Annette Kirk are the three employees of Collier Harvest. The women dont count the hours they dedicate to the cause. As Ms. Kirk says succinctly of her part-time schedule, she puts in as many hours as it takes. The three are the cog in the wheel of spokes that extend to the needs of groups and subgroups, all with the same focus and mission: to feed the food-insecure of Collier County. Collier Harvest operates a number of programs, among them: Helping Hands, Food Fast, Spread the Love and Helping Kids Care. The Helping Hands program operates with surplus food donated by Publix and food acquired through food drives. Food Fast provides specific foods requested by agencies the foodbank serves, funded by monetary donations to Collier Harvest. The Spread the Love program had two distributions in 2016 and expects to have three in 2017, valued at about $15,000 per distribution. Helping Kids Care partners with mothers of students at East Naples Middle School every month, helping to feed 50 families. The schools population of students in need of free/reduced meals is 79.8 percent. Some of these students are homeless, living in their familys car or functioning on only the meals they receive at school, says Mrs. Kirk, the database administrator. Our goal is to increase this program to two Title One schools for the next academic year, she adds. Word about Helping Kids Are is spreading quickly throughout the school district, and other schools with a high population of students facing hunger have reached out to Collier Harvest for support. With more than 65 percent of all Collier County students considered economically needy, and in a town known for its wealth, Mrs. Kirk says, there are approximately 19,000 free lunches and almost 1,600 reduced lunches served a day. It was obvious, she adds, that we needed to do whatever we could as an organization to help. Hungry children should not be commonplace in our paradise. Other Collier Harvest programs serve the homeless and farm workers. No recipient is ever charged for food. By partnering with Stamp Out Hunger, Collier Harvest is able to stretch its food supply throughout the summer months, when food drives and other sources drop considerably.Charting the courseExecutive director Mrs. Preu began working for Collier Harvest in 2009, but she and her family had been volunteering for the organization for years. She and her husband saw an opportunity to instill the value of giving back to the community in their two young girls, now adults. I saw the need for people who are actually hungry in Collier County, Mrs. Preu says. Looking around, she says of the outwardly wealthy community, its hard to imagine. When an administrative job became available in the grassroots organization, Mrs. Preu was tapped for the position. Shortly after, and at the height of the Great Recession, she became Collier Harvests executive director. Collier Harvest was all surplus food and food drives, she says. And Stamp Out Hunger provided for the summer months. In time, the organization began raising funds in addition to distributing donated foods, to see if we could help more people on a consistent basis, she says. Eight years later, she still loves what she does. The agencies are the driving factor of that love, in addition to the strong relationships built among coworkers and volunteers. These are some of the nicest people on the planet, Mrs. Preu says. When you go door-to-door with the agencies and see what youre working for, how can you not love it? Every day, I am blessed. Spreading the wordMrs. Kirk facilitates Collier Harvests message to the public in numerous ways, including working with the press, managing the Collier Harvest website and serving as the organizations chief photographer.

for the Community Foundation of Collier County in the past, and as a volunteer for Stamp Out Hunger, she was asked to join the staff to get the word out about Collier Harvest, and is grateful to see the results of her work on behalf of the organization. Its a very tangible reward, she says. We get to know the agencies the people. We understand what theyre going through. And when we have money, the agencies are able to supply food on a regular basis. Weve dug deep for people who dont have the means to do it themselves. Theres more than a degree of instant gratification inherent in what she does, Mrs. Kirk adds. This is how we know were making a difference: We can see it. We can feel it. We get letters of thanks from people we help. VolunteerismIts a tough job, but someone has to do it, and that job belongs to volunteer coordinator Carol Harris, the third of Collier Harvests three employees. Shes been the go-to person for the organizations 90 volunteers since 1999. When she was approached about the position 18 years ago by trustees Ann and John Riker a power couple who helped Mr. Paradis get the organization started she was also the coordinator for Meals on Wheels. Many would consider Ms. Harris an organizational force of nature, but she demurs at the suggestion. They know what to do, she says. It runs like clockwork, to be honest. I give them a specific day or a store to go to. They have a schedule, and they pick up the food and drop it off at the designated agency or church. The volunteers are all eager to help out. Her greatest satisfaction, she says, is hearing how people appreciate the food and how it helps them out with their daily lives. Some might be farm workers. Some might work in service to Collier Countys wealthy. Some might have disabilities, be housebound or be affected by mental illness. Everybody thinks Naples is the center of paradise and that only rich people live here, Ms. Harris says. But we feed a lot of hungry people. Tom Ryan was about to step out to celebrate his 66th wedding anniversary with his wife, Patricia, when we caught up with him. The soon-to-be 88-year-old has volunteered with Collier Harvest for 25 years almost since day one of the organization. Im just one of these guys who has to have a lot to do, he says, adding with a chuckle, but I cant spend all my time on the golf course. Indeed, Mr. Ryan has served on a number of boards over the years, including Collier Harvest. In his spare time, he collects antique cars and has an antique airplane at his home in Minnesota. But back in 1992, he was looking for volunteer work when the program hed been serving was defunded. He learned about Collier Harvest and has been with them ever since. To this day, he makes the long drive from Publix at Freedom Square to the Six Ls workers camp in eastern Collier County once a week, his SUV loaded with day-old baked goods. He hits the road at 6:30 a.m. and his shift is usually done by 9:30 a.m. if the father of seven doesnt stop to read Golden Books to Six Ls children. Then he delivers any leftovers from the haul to St. Vincent de Paul. Will Sass has been a Collier Harvest volunteer for four years. Like Mr. Ryan, he heads out once a week to the Publix at Vineyards, seats down in his SUV to accommodate boxes and boxes of bakery donations. His first delivery is to the Goodlette Arms government-subsidized apartments. Then its on to Jewish Family and Community Services of Southwest Florida. At Goodlette Arms, residents know when to expect him and recognize his vehicle. Theyre very friendly and appreciative, says the retired Collier County school psychologist. My job is to deliver the food properly so (the agency) can distribute the food the way they see fit. Mr. Sass first learned about Collier Harvest reading a call for volunteers in the St. William Catholic Church weekly bulletin. After serving the school district for 26 years and retiring in 2010, he felt a need. I had the desire to make a contribution, which was always a major part of my life, he says. Education is giving. It was something I could do, and I missed that. When I saw that ad for Collier Harvest, I thought, This is a good thing. It was part of me I wanted to recapture. At 64 and in retirement, Mr. Sass is grateful that he is in good health. I dont take it for granted. Our time here is temporary. When I thought about it, I realized my (school district) job was done, but my work as a human being was not.

DEMATTIAFlorida Weekly CorrespondentAcademy Award-winner Moonlight, filmed across just 25 days in and around Miami, is an inspiration to independent filmmakers. Curry Walls is one of them. Mr. Walls is the driving force behind 5th Avenue Films, established in Naples last year to create original content for filming in Collier County and around the state. I always wanted to write, he shares, So I thought, why not try and do something? Mr. Walls spent his career in the industry, working at 20th Century Fox and later getting involved in the celebrity infomercial format with Robert Vaughn, George Hamilton and Robin Leach, among others. He has now written seven screenplays and hopes to start production on the first this summer. First, though, he needs to find investors, who would receive shares in the company. He estimates needing $2.5 million to complete the first film. The company is holding an awarenessbuilding event at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 11, at the Naples Accelerator, 3510 Kraft Road. In addition to Mr. Walls, speakers will include 5th Avenue Films producer and former talent agent TJ Snopkowski, Paradise Coast Film Commission Director Maggie McCarty and Jace Kentner, director of the Collier County Business and Economic Development Division. Wine and cheese will be served. Admission is free. 5th Avenue Films will premiere a onehour stage adaptation (with lighting, projection screen and music) of Mr. Wallss Its Nothing Personal screenplay the evening of Tuesday, May 16, at the Sugden Community Theatre. He describes it as a cautionary tale about how people treat each other and the planet as told from a dreamer and four generations of his family who live in Naples. The film could feature up to a dozen actors. Tickets are $150 and include a post-show reception and discussion. Tickets may be purchased at Part of Mr. Wallss efforts includes shedding light on the lapse of Floridas $296 million tax incentive program for film production. We have lost so much business to Georgia, says Ms. McCarty. They have a very aggressive program and market it well.

FOR NEW PATIENTS ONLY Latest religious messages The church-state wall leaks badly in Spindale, N.C., according to former members of the Word of Faith Fellowship (reported in February by the Associated Press). Two state prosecutors (one a relative of the churchs founder), in nearby Burke and Rutherford counties, allegedly coached fellowship members and leaders how to neutralize government investigations into church abuse coaching that would violate state law and attorney ethical standards. Fellowship officials have been accused of beating misbehaving congregants, including children, in order to repel their demons. (Among the fellowships edicts revealed in the AP report: All dating, marriages and procreation subject to approval; no wedding-night intimacy beyond a godly cheek kiss; subsequent marital sex limited to 30 minutes, no foreplay, lights off, missionary position.) Babies born on the Indonesian island of Bali are still today treated regally under an obscure Hindu tradition, according to a February New York Times report, and must not be allowed to touch the earth for 105 days (in some areas, 210). (Carrying the infant in a bucket and setting that on the ground is apparently acceptable.) Each birth is actually a re-birth, they say, with ancestors returning as their own descendants. (Accidentally touching the ground does not condemn the baby, but may leave questions about negative influences.) Catholic priest Juan Carlos Martinez, 40, apologized shortly after realizing, as he said, he had gone too far in celebrating Marchs Carnival in a town in the Galicia area of Spain that he acted inappropriately in dressing as Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner, reclining on a red satin sheet on a parade float carrying men dressed as classic Playboy Bunnies. Despite apparent public support for Father Martinez, his Archbishop asked him to attend a spiritual retreat to reflect on his behavior.TP goes high techChinas public-park restrooms have for years suffered toilet-paper theft by local residents who raid dispensers for their own homes (a cultural habit, wrote Hong Kongs South China Morning Post, expressing taxpayer feelings of owning public facilities), but the government recently fought back with technology. At Beijings popular Temple of Heaven park, dispensers now have facial-recognition scanners beside the six toilets, with precut paper (about 24 inches long) issued only to users who pose for a picture. (Just one slug of paper can be dispensed to the same face in a nine-minute period, catastrophic for the diarrhea-stricken and requiring calling an attendant to override the machine.)PerspectiveThe U.S. House of Representatives, demonstrating particular concern for military veterans, enhanced vets civil rights in March by removing a source of delay in gun purchases. A 2007 law had required all federal agencies to enter any mentally ill clients into the National Instant Criminal Background Check database for gun purchases, but the new bill exempts veterans (including, per VA estimates, 19,000 schizophrenics and 15,000 with severe post-traumatic stress syndrome). (An average of a dozen veterans a day in recent times have committed suicide with guns.)Fine points of the lawPolice and prosecutors in Williamsburg, Va., are absolutely certain that Oswaldo Martinez raped and killed a teenage girl in 2005, but, though he was quickly arrested, they have 12 years later not even put him on trial. Martinez, then 33, is still apparently, genuinely (i.e., not faking) deaf, illiterate and almost mute, and besides that, the undocumented Salvadoran immigrant has such limited intelligence that test after test has shown him incapable of understanding his legal rights, and therefore incompetent to stand trial. (Police made multiple slam dunk findings of Martinezs DNA on the victims body and also linked Martinez via a store camera to the very bottle of juice left at the crime scene.) NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERDDistributed by Universal Press Syndicatepost-production in Georgia, including feature films, television series, commercials, music videos, animation and game development. Ms. McCarty says Florida was once third behind Los Angeles and New York but now isnt even on the list as producers and filmmakers consider where to shoot their movies and TV shows. She says the Georgia town where The Walking Dead is filmed has been revitalized with new restaurants, tours and stores. She thinks the same could happen in Naples. He has a dream and wants to see if this can really happen, Ms. McCarty says of Mr. Walls. Hes investing emotionally and financially, and Im encouraging and supporting him in any way I can. Mr. Walls is counting on others to see his vision as well. I am hoping patrons of the arts want to get involved so we can make a movie, create jobs and put money back in the local economy, he says. Filming here could lead to tourism the same way people over in Miami still want to see were scenes in Miami Vice were shot.

Order online at jasonsdeli.comSarasota Port Charlotte Fort Myers Cape Coral Naples CONGRATULATIONS FLORIDA WEEKLY 10 GREAT YEARS The eaglets have landed at Marco Island preserve and sanctuary BY LINDA TURNERSpecial to Florida WeeklyFinally! There are two eaglets in the nest at the Marco Island Nature Preserve & Bird Sanctuary. Last week, through a high-powered lens, two small, fuzzy, eaglet heads were seen reaching up for food being delivered into the nest by the adult eagles. One eaglet appears considerably larger than the other, an indication that the eggs hatched a few days apart. The adult male eagle, Paleo, stays busy all day fishing and flying his catch back to the nest. Calusa, the adult female, keeps the eaglets warm, protects them from crows and hawks and feeds them the fish from Paleo after she has shredded it for easy consumption. Eaglets grow at a very rapid pace, reaching adult size by 12 weeks. Although they will fledge from the nest between 10-12 weeks, they will return to roost and to be fed by the adult eagles for a few more weeks. Visitors come to the preserve all day long, bringing binoculars and long-lens cameras in hopes of getting a closer look at the eagle family activities. There has been considerable interest in providing easy and accessible close-up viewing of the eagles, which has resulted in numerous requests for the installation of eagle cams.Eagle cams in Collier CountyWe have all heard the adage, A picture says a thousand words. Imagine how many words an eagle cam would say. Broadcasting our eagles activity through online eagle cams will make it easy for school-age children and eagle lovers everywhere to view these magnificent birds from anywhere in the world. The Marco Eagle Sanctuary Foundation hopes to make this happen. The goal is to install an eagle cam system on the preserve by September 2017, before the start of the next eagle-nesting season in October. The project requires two high-tech pan and zoom cameras that can withstand water, salt, wind and dust; a computer and software for transmission; waterproof computer housing; electrical, internet and broadband connections; and installation involving a crane. The approximate cost for this project is $45,000. About the Marco eaglesBald eagles have resided on the Marco Island Nature Preserve & Bird Sanctuary property since the 1970s. The preserves current resident eagle adults, named Paleo and Calusa, were so named by the 2011 fifth-grade class at Tommie Barfield Elementary School. There is a high probability that Paleo or Calusa are relatives of the preserves earlier resident eagles, as offspring eagles always come back to their birth nest to start their families if the nest is available. The bald eagle, a state and federally protected species, holds a special status of prominence as Americas symbol for freedom and strength. The preserve and sanctuaryThe Marco Eagle Sanctuary Foundation is the parent organization for the Marco Island Nature Preserve & Bird Sanctuary project at 665 Tigertail Court. The foundations mission for the project is to preserve and protect the site for generations to come. The preservation will include additional native trees and plants to attract new bird species, butter flies and wildlife. Walking paths will be installed for guided tours and for bird watchers to enjoy when the eagles are not nesting. A small learning center is planned on the preserves southern corner, 330 feet from the nesting tree and compliant with state and federal restrictions for construction activity around an eagles nest. The learning center will provide interactive video stations for visitors to learn more about the eagles as well as the ecosystem that makes up the preserve. The learning center will also have a controlled entrance and exit to and from the preserve walking paths. Among those collaborating with the Marco Eagle Sanctuary Foundation on the project are: Florida Gulf Coast University, Naples Botanical Garden, Rookery Bay National Marine Reserve, Defenders of Wildlife-Southwest Florida, Florida Native Plant Society-Naples Chapter, Keep Collier Beautiful and the Collier County Public Schools Department of Science and Environment.

For manatees, it is a seasonal ritual when they abandon winter retreats and head north along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts and through inland waters. For boaters, it is a critical time to be on the lookout for manatees to avoid colliding with these large, slow-moving aquatic mammals. From April 1 through Nov. 15, seasonal manatee zones require boaters to slow down in certain areas to prevent manatees from being struck by motorboats or personal watercraft. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission law enforcement officers will be on patrol in state waters to remind boaters of the seasonal manatee speed zones and take enforcement actions when necessary. Because manatees are difficult to detect when underwater, operators of boats, including personal watercraft, need to take basic steps to avoid causing injury to manatees. Wear polarized sunglasses to help spot manatees. Look for large circles on the water, also known as manatee footprints, indicating the presence of a manatee below. Look for a snout sticking up out of the water. Follow posted manatee zones while boating. FWC biologists, managers and law enforcement staff work closely with partners to evaluate current data and identify necessary actions to protect this iconic animal. Florida has invested over $2 million annually for manatee conservation, and the FWC will work toward continued success for manatees in our state. Manatee zones and maps are available at, where you can select Protection Zones for links to county maps.

A world-renowned runner and inspirational speaker, Ms. Claiborne was born in York, Pa., in 1953 with physical and mental special needs. A social worker recognized her talent and introduced her to the Special Olympics in 1971. In addition to many Special Olympics events, Ms. Claiborne also qualified, trained for and ran in the Boston Marathon in 1981, the first Special Olympics athlete to do so. She placed among the top 100 women that year and again in 1982. Since then she has finished more than 25 marathons, including the Pittsburgh Marathon in 1988, where she finished among the top 25 women runners. She was awarded the ESPN ESPY Arthur Ashe Award for Courage in 1996. Her life story has been shared in the Walt Disney Productions movie The Loretta Claiborne Story and in the WorldScapes biography In Her Stride. During her visit to Southwest Florida, she will share her positive message with students, local Special Olympics athletes and the general public. To help pay for her visit, the Character and Thought Foundation is collecting new and gently worn shoes that will in turn be purchased by Funds2Orgs, an Orlando-based organization that helps impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses in countries such as Haiti, Honduras and other nations in Central America and Africa. Funds2Orgs will redistribute the shoes purchased from Character and Thought throughout its network of microenterprise partners in developing nations. The recipients in those countries sell the shoes and use the proceeds to feed, clothe and house their families. One entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send to her son to law school. In addition to helping pay for Ms. Claibornes visit to Southwest Florida, proceeds from the shoe drive will benefit Special Olympics FloridaCollier County. Shoes can be dropped off at the Greater Naples YMCA at 5450 YMCA Road. For more information, call the Character and Thought Foundation at 2506947 or email characterandthoughtinc@ CLAIBORNE

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 6-12, 2017 NEWS A25 CCSO campaign discourages distracted drivingDont text. Dont call. Dont email. Dont eat. Dont groom. Dont read. Just drive. Thats it. The Collier County Sheriffs Office urges motorists to avoid distractions while driving, especially cell phone use, in order to pay full attention to the road. Texting, talking, using a map basically anything other than driving is dangerous because it takes your attention away from the road. In 2016, 10 percent of all accidents in Collier County were caused by some form of distracted driving. More than 100 people in the county were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving someone using a cell phone or other electronic communication device. The agency is using Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to promote the campaign and to provide safety information and tips for motorists. Follow the campaign using the hashtag #ccsojustdrive. CCSO deputies are also distributing window clings with the message Just drive. Thats it during traffic stops and at special events. The clings are also available at CCSO substations, and CCSO Youth Relations Bureau deputies are giving them to Teen Driver Challenge students during the portion of the session that addresses the dangers of aggressive driving. Five seconds is the average time your eyes are off the road while texting. When traveling at 55 mph, thats enough time to cover the length of a football field blindfolded, according to the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration. Teenagers are among the drivers most impaired by distraction. The top distraction for teens is other passengers, accounting for 15 percent of teen driver accidents, compared to 12 percent caused by texting or talking on a cell phone. CCSO offers these tips to help remind motorists to make all activities secondary to driving: Before you leave the driveway, put on your sunglasses, adjust seats and seat belts and enter an address in the navigation system or review maps or written directions. Depart in plenty of time to make it to your destination. Once you are driving, if you must make a call, use a hands-free device. If something arises that needs your attention and you cant take care of it after your trip, pull over to a safe location and deal with it. Basically, just drive. Thats it. 5450 TAMIAMI TRAIL N.

BEHIND THE WHEELLexus GS Turbo even luxury loves valueThe biggest news at Lexus right now might just be a smaller motor. The 2017 Lexus GS Turbo is a way for the company to reach down to those people who say they like sporty style, but really only spend their money to add luxury. It all starts with a bright idea. Lexus used to position the GS as the higher horsepower alternative to cars like the BMW 5-Series and Mercedes E-Class. Both of the Germans come with a standard 2.0-liter turbo motor making 240250 horsepower and a $53K base price. The Lexus GS350 cost about the same and offers a 311 hp V6. But someone at the Japanese luxury company realized there was another way to add value. Lexus already has a 2.0-liter turbo motor in models like the IS sedan and NX crossover. In fact, it fits right in with the first rung of the BMW and Mercedes chain with its 241 hp. By kicking the turbo upstairs, Lexus gets to break through the $50K floor. Its $47,305 base price is far from landing in the bargain basement (Cadillacs CTS is right there, too,) but it creates a distinct savings. This new 2017 model carries the 200t badge, but everyone at the local dealer will likely refer to it as the GS Turbo since it sounds sportier. Thats needed because the entire mission of the GS is to uphold the performance end of the midsize sedan lineup. Lexus sells the ES for those who want a comfortable frontwheel drive machine with plenty of passenger space for family and friends. The mission of the GS is to be able to carry everyone, but be a bit more driveroriented with rear-wheel drive. Its immediately noticeable in the styling that has one of the most aggressive faces grafted onto the companys hallmark hourglass grille. The sharp points integrated into the design of the headlights and air inlets add true distinction to the face. But the softened lines on the profile and rear keep this luxury coupe from looking like a complete bully. Inside, luxury is job one for this Lexus. Every surface is meant to feel premium, and every button f eels sturdy. Our test vehicle was optioned with the F Sport packaging, which gave it features like better-contoured seats and a digital gauge panel, and the glossy wood is replaced by textured metal. But everyone gets premium features like dual zone climate control, power front seats, power tilt steering wheel and backup camera. The GS doesnt use a touchscreen for its standard full infotainment system. Instead, it utilizes a fingertip controller for everything from the premium audio to the live traffic updates. While it might take a week or so for owners to get fully used to it, the benefits include the screen location further away for glare reduction and other controls can be moved closer to your fingertips. Under the hood, the turbo motor doesnt look out of place, but we do know theres room for much more under there. After all, back in October we had a chance to get some track time in the scramming-hot GS F. It has a 467 horsepower V8, and Lexus even likes to brag that they arent using a turbocharger for their hottest sports sedan unlike the BMW M5 and Mercedes AMG E43. That was a lot of fun, but the 2.0-liter GS represents the opposite (and practical) end of the stick. The turbo motor has a whisper-quiet operation at startup, which is a signature of Lexus luxury. Driving around town is easy with light steering and plenty of suspension dampening. And the only time we ever really needed the turbo to spool up and add serious power was for hard acceleration, like when merging on the interstate. The 2.0 motor doesnt run out of breath, it just doesnt inhale as deep as the 460+hp GS F. Premium car shopping is usually about adding on the features that coddle. So when the new GS Turbo is about less displacement and less cost while still keeping the luxury its a nice acknowledgement that if were willing to be practical, Lexus is, too.

Its vision is of a society of healthy communities where all individuals reach their highest potential for health. I have been given the honor and privilege of serving as one of 27 AHA board members. Among other opportunities, I get to visit with and listen to some of the nine regional policy board members a few times each year and recently was with very welcoming and thoughtful leaders in a region encompassing Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. The discussion centered on the following, all gleaned from AHA background and discussion materials: Affordability: The rising cost of health care for individuals, providers and business/government payers is considered by many as the most serious health-care problem facing America. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services estimates we spent almost $10,000 per person in 2015. Since 2007 health-care spending has increased 25 percent, crowding out other basic family needs. The average price of brand-name drugs rose 16 percent in 2015, up 98 percent since 2011. Next generation of physician leadership: Developing physician leaders and understanding their viewpoints in this important moment the evolution of health-care delivery as payment relationships are being driven by insurers from volume to value are both a major stress and important goal. Mutual success for physicians and healthcare systems, as we together care for patients, requires change in the manner in which we work collaboratively.

Participation is free for members of the Greater Naples YMCA; others pay a small fee per class. Financial assistance is also available. A doctors referral is recommended but not required. Personal caretakers are welcome to accompany participants. Ms. Roderick has more than 25 years of experience, including 20 years at the NCH Wellness Center and three in her current position at the Y. She also served as head athletic trainer at Lely High School for 10 years. In the fall of 2016, she underwent extensive MLC training and earned certification from the Cooper Institute. Thanks to a generous gift of almost $5,000 from a local donor, the Y was able to fund the programs procedures and purchase the equipment needed to begin MLC. Y instructor Andrew Reid and four Florida Gulf Coast University interns assist Ms. Roderick in leading the classes. Mr. Reid, assistant MLC program manager, brings more than 22 years of experience as a personal trainer/exercise professional to the job. He is also a certified black belt in Goju (Japanese martial arts). The student interns all are studying exercise science or another aspect of health care at FGCU. Celia B., a 70-year-old recent transplant to Naples from Seattle, has been in the program since the first session back in January. Shes diabetic, suffered a stroke in 2010 and had back surgery in 2015. Thanks to the class, she says, she has seen significant improvements in her muscle tone and balance. And I can walk without my cane, she proudly adds. Longtime Neapolitan Bob B. joined the class just a few weeks ago. Approaching 80 years old, he has a bad leg, a bad hip and spinal fusion. I was doing too much sitting, not moving enough, he says about his reason for signing up. After a few sessions, hes already feeling and moving around better, he says.

Also being discussed nationally is the issue of physician resilience and wellbeing, which parallels an initiative that has been in place at NCH for the past year under the guidance of Dr. Paul Jones, president of the NCH medical staff. Political and legislative update: This subject changes by the day and sometimes even more frequently in keeping with the new Washington acronym, VUCA (volatile, uncertain, confusing and ambiguous). Trying to take a picture of todays situation is unproductive. From a historical perspective, Medicare was enacted in 1965, has undergone 11 adjustments since then and today has an 80 percent approval rating by the public. Without getting political or dogmatic, my opinion is that more efficiency and transparency combined with less waste and rhetoric will serve everyone better.

Brown, MD, FACSFounder & Medical DirectorLifetime Eye Care for the Entire Family12 CONVENIENT LOCATIONS PET TALESSpring safetyThe season of renewal can be perilous for pets. Household poisons come in the form of pretty plants, tasty (human) treats and more BY DR. MARTY BECKERAndrews McMeel SyndicationIs your home ready for spring? If you live with dogs, cats or other pets, you may need to do some extra preparation to ensure their safety as your garden comes to life, your home fills with flowers for spring holidays, and you or your neighbors fight off unwelcome spring guests such as rodents and external parasites. Heres what you should know about preventing pet poisoning from common plants and products. Lilies are lovely, but they can be fatal to cats. A cat who eats any part of a lily flowers, leaves, stems, pollen or drinks water in a vase of lilies can develop fatal kidney failure. Dont plant lilies in your yard if you have outdoor cats, and dont accept them into your home if you receive a bouquet for Easter or your birthday. Give them to a friend or family member whose home is cat-free. Other common spring plants that can be toxic to pets include bulbs such as daffodils and tulips. Pets who eat the tops or flowers of bulbs usually suffer only mild stomach upset, but if they eat the bulb itself, the result can be bloody vomiting and diarrhea and low blood pressure. Cats are also sensitive to certain fleaand tick-control products, especially those made for dogs. Never give your dogs parasite-prevention products to your cat, thinking that shell be safe if you just use a little less. Feline physiology is not the same as that of a dog or human. Cats respond in different ways to certain chemicals, so its important to purchase parasite preventives made specifically for them. What about dogs? We all know that they are indiscriminate eaters, willing to chow down on whatever they come across in the hope that its edible. Check labels to make sure food items such as baked goods, candy, chewing gum and even peanu t butt er arent sweetened with xylitol. Pets, including cats, who ingest xylitol-sweetened items show signs such as vomiting, sudden and lifethreatening low blood sugar, and liver failure. If your dog considers himself a professional taste-tester, read labels carefully, and keep these items well out his reach. Chocolate Easter bunnies and eggs, especially those made with dark chocolate, can be toxic to pets. Chocolate contains a compound called theobromine that is harmful to dogs, cats and parrots. Bakers and dark chocolate have the highest concentrations of theobromine and can cause vomiting, diarrhea and seizures, depending on the size of the animal and how much he eats. Take your pet to the vet if you find evidence that he has broken into your chocolate stash.If you are a savvy pet owner, you probably avoid putting out mouse or rat poison for fear that your pet will ingest it, but neighbors or family members you visit might not be so careful. Ask if they have put out any bait traps, where they are and if theyd be willing to take them up while your pet is there. Rodenticides containing anticoagulants are treatable with blood transfusions and vitamin K if the poisoning is caught in time, but alternative poisons that contain a neurotoxin called bromethalin are more harmful to pets and have no antidote.Finally, for many people, spring means allergy season. Human medications are the number-one reason for calls to animal poison control hotlines. Decongestants can be deadly to pets who accidentally ingest them. They can cause vomiting, high blood pressure, abnormal heart rhythms, tremors and seizures. Seek veterinary help immediately if you discover your pet has ingested these types of drugs. Remember, it takes dogs only about 15 seconds to break into a childproof bottle. Pets of the Week>> Fantasia is a 1-year-old tuxedo with beautiful markings and personality sweet as honey.

Since breaking my ankle, theres not much to do from my temporary perch on the sofa other than channel surf, where the other day I run across the actor who used to play hot, sexy Robert Scorpio on General Hospital back in the s, now playing someones grandfather on a different soap opera on a different network. Being unable to walk makes me feel feeble enough I dont need elderly Robert Scorpio making me feel even older, thank you very much. Of course, I can always scroll Facebook and take in everyones busy lives as one friend posts boating photos, another checks in at a festive happy hour, and an acquaintance posts her weight-loss stats since she started doing CrossFit. I want to boat, I want to have happy hours, I want to impress Facebook with my fitness. I find myself becoming needlessly envious even when a Facebook friend complains about seasonal traffic I want to drive. Even if it means being stuck behind a car with Ohio plates going 14 mph in the left lane. Therefore, since 798 DirectTV channels, or my 2,091 Facebook friends, arent making me feel any better about my predicament, I must send high praises to the interwebs for the joys of online shopping. Seriously what did people who were stuck at home recovering from injuries DO before Amazon Prime? I cant imagine trying to navigate the aisles at Target or Ross Dress for Less with my crutches, but getting around Amazon Prime is pure bliss as I wile away the hours, happily clicking my mouse. And, best of all, with two-day free delivery, gratification is nea rly instantaneous. My 2-week shopping spree started out innocently enough, with an eyelash curler. An eyelash curler is the type of thing you always tell yourself youll pick up the next time youre at CVS much like a pack of Post-It Notes or a travel sewing kit you dont need it NOW, but you wish you had it on hand; and yet you always forget to buy one. So, while contemplating my eyelashes in my recovery boredom, I ordered the eyelash curler and only the eyelash curler for $7.99. When it arrived at our door just 48 hours later and my eyelashes sported a flirty curl, I went on a mouse-clicking rampage. iPhone case with a built-in battery pack? Yes, please. Chewable calcium supplements? I need those. Vanilla-flavored Splenda for my coffee? Bring it. The random shopping list became even more random the toilet seat in the guest bathroom had a small crack, but we just kept putting off a trip to Home Depot. Then again, why contend with long lines of snowbirds buying potting soil when you can order your potty seat online? Ive found several cute tops, a pair of sunglasses, and a crafty wooden salt-and-pepper shaker set. Theres a delivery almost every day, which makes sofa life almost like Christmas. That reminds me, I need to order a back scratcher this afternoon and for just an extra $4.99, I can have it giftwrapped. Sure, its extravagant, but considering all the money Im saving on happy hour these days, I can justify it. Click, click, click instead of sip, sip, sip. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next wee stephanieDAVIS

The CEO of the Naples Children & Education Foundation, Mrs. JimenezLara has spent almost her entire 25-year professional career working for nonprofit organizations. I think the opportunity that has been afforded to me to work with nonprofits was a good match with my skill set and with my belief in education and my awareness that its our responsibility to give back to the community, she says. Those two things have been at the center of my whole career. When your beliefs match your career, then thats a win-win for you. The nonprofit NCEF is the founding organization of the Naples Winter Wine Festival, which raises money to benefit the organization. The NCEF supports charitable programs that improve the physical, emotional and educational lives of Collier Countys underprivileged and at-risk children. Since its start in 2001, the wine festival has raised more than $161 million for the foundation, including more than $15 million at this years event in January. Those funds have enabled the organization to support initiatives that address early learning, health care, hunger, vision, mental and oral health, and outof-school issues for the countys youth.

For information about reserving a table, call the BSEEDC at 333-2332. Until recently. Pressures to change practices. Pressures to change acts. Pressures to conform to current ways. Most people are unaware of the extent you cared for animals. Most are unaware of the brilliant business model to get people in the door to experience the circus and buy memorabilia and merchandise. Most are unaware that Ringling Bros. was the entry point for so many to begin their careers in show business. It was a gateway for many around the world to explore, to share culture, and to provide smiles. It was so much to so many. In many ways, it was part of the American way. I remember the excitement when the train stopped in a city. I remember the authentic joy the clowns brought as the elephants paraded down the streets to the arena. I remember the genuine love of the circus by its performers behind the scenes and in the rings. I remember the sweat on the brow before each show and the smiles that filled the stands. So it begs the question: Why did Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey fail? Or did we fail it? I have struggled to explain how we allow our American icons to disappear. For what? Better, more wholesome family entertainment? Why did the business environment change so rapidly? Or did it? Was it lack of strategic foresight? Was it changing societal norms? Were there simply better options? Or did we take it for granted that what was once here will always be here? This was an icon that navigated the generations. It circumvented challenges over nearly 15 decades. Somehow it remained relevant year after year, until now. But why? To some, Ringling gave up its core values and became something different when it removed elephants from its show. To others, no matter the advances or new innovations, it was still the circus that you only needed to see once. To others, it was a lumbering icon that couldnt change quickly enough to keep up with the pace of technology and todays entertainment. And, to others, it was simply taken for granted that it would always be there for us, like it had been for the previous 146 years. Perhaps this is less Ringling Bros. giving up or giving in and more a statement of the America we live in today. We gravitate to sexy headlines. We are intrigued more by the glitz and less by the substance. We place stereotypes on things that we are reluctant to ever modify. We expose our youth more to what is ahead and much less to what is now. Reality works best when there is controversy or big names. But that has never been the circus way. Theirs was a way of basic, good old-fashioned American values. This ending of an era sends a message to all of us. It reminds us that relevance is fleeting. It reminds us, as parents and grandparents, that we must find new forms of entertainment to bring our families together. It reminds us to hold on to what is important to each of us whether it is the circus or something else. At its core, this is about family values and working fiercely to protect them in whatever way is most appropriate to todays family.The circus that convened families, generations and communities is soon to be no longer here. For many it has been replaced by the bright lights of the computer screen and video games as well as the solitude they bring. We may not be able to recreate the greatest show on earth, but we can recreate the environment and the magic that it was to families who came together to celebrate the goodness and wholesomeness it represented. There will be many questions. What really happened to end this era? What will become of the animals for whom Ringling provided such genuine and remarkable care? What will happen to the children who no longer have the greatest show on earth? There will be answers. But, unfortunately, not the same answers our parents had for us. Ringling Bros., RIP.

And when we examine this concept in a vacuum, I think the average investor understands how this works. After all, I dont know many shareholders who are happy when their $1 of capital returns just the original $1 after a given period of time. Yet there are many businesses that use TVM to take advantage of unsuspecting consumers. So what is the time value of money and how does it apply to investing and the world at large? A dollar today is worth more than a dollar tomorrow in a normal economic environment for two main reasons. First, money has the potential to gain a return or interest. By having money today, it can earn that return over time. But money in the future cannot be harnessed immediately to earn interest, so must be worth less. Second, there is an opportunity cost for taking money today and waiting to get it back in the future. Maybe a few days from now there is a better investment opportunity that arises or you want to buy a new car. Having a dollar today, ready for consumption or investment, is almost always preferable for having to wait to get that dollar in the future. Patience is not a virtue in investing. Two businesses that take advantage of the time value of money sometimes to the detriment of consumers are timeshares and annuities. I was in a timeshare presentation where the sales person asked the audience how much they spend on vacations per year. Someone threw out $5,000. She then went on and said that over 20 years you would have spent $100,000 on vacations so isnt it better to spend $75,000 on buying a timeshare so your vacations are paid for the rest of your life? Of course, the sales person is not taking into account the time value of money. Spending $75,000 is better than spending $100,000, but you are not comparing apples to apples. The $75,000 you are spending today is worth a lot more than money spent 15 years in the future. And this doesnt even take credit risk into account. What guarantee do you have that the timeshare property will be in existence 20 years in the future? Annuities also sometimes prey on peoples fuzziness when it comes to TVM. Put down some money today and get guaranteed smaller amounts for the rest of your life to maintain your lifestyle. Sounds great, right? But again, the money today is worth a lot more than money gained in the future. How much more? Well, the answer to that depends on variables like interest rates and inflation. So before you invest one cent in an annuity, first research the company and the details of the investment. Then do a Google search on TVM calculations and spend a few days learning about how the formulas work and start plugging in some real numbers. The results may surprise you.

Taste of Immokalee students pitched their company to our investors, and we were won over by their entrepreneurial drive to succeed, says Timothy Cartwright, chairman of Tamiami Angel Funds, member-managed funds that invest in promising young companies. They are at the vanguard of the trend of social investing, which considers both financial success and community benefits to create social change. Mr. Cartwright believes this new initiative with the Community Foundation of Collier County, called the Tamiami Angels Impact Investing Initiative, will create similar socially responsible investment opportunities in the future. Tamiami Angel Funds raised an initial $12,000 from their members, which will be deposited in a special account set up by the community foundation for the benefit of Taste of Immokalee. This allows investors to claim a tax deduction because they donated the shares in the company to the nonprofit foundation. This is the kind of groundbreaking endeavor the community foundation was designed to facilitate, and we hope this is the first of many such corporate efforts to benefit other causes, such as restoring the environment and improving human health, says Eileen Connolly-Keesler, president and CEO of the Community Foundation of Collier County. If Taste of Immokalee is as successful as investors believe it can be, the benefit to the community could be significant. For example, food and beverage company Newmans Own has distributed $475 million to charity thanks to the actor Paul Newman, who founded the company in 1982. The capital that Taste of Immokalee raises will be used to bring the manufacturing and distribution to Collier County and to boost sales to achieve profitability, says Steve Stolz, board member of Taste of Immokalee. Currently, the company has contracted with a Sarasota-based firm to produce and package the sauces and salsa, but long-range plans include production in Immokalee. The nonprofit 1 By 1 Leadership Foundation of SWFL helped the students launch Taste of Immokalee in 2014 with the help of grants from insurance giant State Farm. This is all about the kids, says John Lawson, executive director of the foundation. They can build it to sustainability.

RSVP required. Email page B1TASTEFrom page B3says. She joined NCEF in 2012 as its director of foundation services and grants and assumed her current post in 2015. Prior to NCEF, she served as the director of charter schools for the Redlands Christian Migrant Association in Immokalee for 13 years. Coming to the foundation was an opportunity to continue serving atrisk and underprivileged children in a broader sense because I would be working with more of the community, she says. Her professional career began just south of her hometown of Miami, where she worked with migrant farm worker families in the Homestead area. Its a professional journey that has provided her with extensive experience in program development, creating educational programs for at-risk youth, as well as in collaborating with community-based organizations. The abilities to successfully build relationships and work with diverse groups of people are qualities that have proven vital in her career, she says. She credited the lessons of her parents, Sam and Tere Jimenez, with providing the blueprint that produced those qualities. My dad was a very diplomatic person, and my mother taught me that you have to leave the world a better world than you found it, she says. So the combination of the two has helped me to not only advance the cause of the organization, but to also to work with the different groups of people that we rely on to move that forward. Her long-term goals involve continuing to develop strategies for sustainability to ensure the NCEF is able to continue its mission in years to come. Short-term, she is focused on pinpointing ways for the NCEF to be more efficient and effective and to continue learning as an organization. Where new initiatives are concerned, Mrs. Jimenez-Lara cites the expansion of NCEF programs into communities such as East Naples, Golden Gate, Naples Park and the Bayshore area. Were looking at those pockets where theres a high need and not enough services, she said. Mrs. Jimenez-Lara holds bachelors degrees in management from Florida International University and in psychology from the University of the Americas in Mexico City. She also has a masters in public administration from Hodges University. She and her husband, Jorge, have two children, Melanie, 25, and Cesar, 9. The family resides North Naples. Interview with Maria Jimenez-LaraBusiness mentor: I am fortunate to be part of an organization that draws from a pool of incredibly talented and successful business people. Within this group, I rely most strongly on members of our board of directors for guidance, mentorship, feedback and support. First job: I worked with teens caught up in gangs and the juvenile justice system, which inspired me to dedicate my entire career to expanding services for underserved youth. Business words of wisdom: Its imperative to communicate clearly and take care of all those who help your organization, no matter their role. Favorite business book: Good to Great by Jim Collins. Two things you look for when hiring: The foremost characteristics I look for in a candidate are prior expertise and a desire to learn. Any job openings? We have no current job openings.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 6-12, 2017 BUSINESS B7 I trace my roots back to 1997, when my founder launched a Name Your Own Price service. Two years later I went public, ending my first trading day valued at nearly $13 billion. My market value was recently $87 billion. Over the years, Ive tried selling groceries, gas, long-distance phone service, mortgages, cars and used goods. My focus today is on flights, hotels, car rentals, vacation packages and cruises. I bought in 2005, KAYAK in 2013 and OpenTable in 2014. I rake in more than $10 billion annually and sport a net profit margin near 20 percent. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. When Debt Is GoodIts easy to assume that savvy investors should avoid companies with debt. Too much debt can be a red flag, but debt isnt necessarily all bad.If a company is carrying a lot of debt, its locked into interest payments that it must make. If at any point it doesnt have the cash to meet its obligations, its in trouble. (Many of us can relate to this if weve racked up debt on credit cards.) Even if the company can make the payments, its spending money on debt that it might have been able to use in other, more productive, ways.But debt can help businesses survive and grow, too. Its certainly necessary for many of us individuals, as without mortgages, we would never be able to buy our homes. Car loans and student loans are sometimes prudent choices, too especially when interest rates are low. Many major companies, such as Subway,, Whole Foods Market, United Parcel Service and Starbucks, exist because of early loans to their founders. Established companies can make good use of debt, too, borrowing to expand operations and grow their businesses. And interest payments, which are deductible, can decrease a companys taxable income. Investors considering companies with debt need to evaluate whether the debt taken on is manageable and whether the money raised and invested is earning more than it costs. Perhaps youre worried about the debt load of Acme Explosives (ticker: KBOOM). Glance at the notes in its annual report, and you may find that the effective interest rate for its debt is 5 percent. If Acme is putting the borrowed funds to work earning, say, 8 percent, then things arent so bad. But if Acme is generating $100 million in cash annually while owing $200 million in annual interest payments, thats not so good. When companies need money, they can typically issue more stock or take on debt. Issuing stock may dilute the value of existing shares, so debt might be better. Overall, though, on a balance sheet, little to no debt is best. Wild DreamsI cant pinpoint one exceptionally poor investment, as Ive made so many, but I do have one major regret. Ive been actively investing for 40 years. Had I never sold any of the stocks I purchased 30 or more years ago, Id have wealth now beyond my wildest dreams. Sure, I would have had some big losers, but the winner would have more than made up for them. Ive learned that if a company is fundamentally sound, which more often than not has nothing to do with its earnings reports over a one-year period or even a five-year period, I need to be patient and occasionally use sharp stock-price declines as opportunities to buy more shares. Of course, now I dont have 30 or 40 more years to look forward to, but I still love the stock market. Im fortunate to be very comfortable. I subscribe to Warren Buffets philosophy on when one should want to sell a stock: never. R.G., Anacortes, WashingtonThe Fool Responds: Being impatient and having a short-term mentality are two surefire ways to hurt your investing performance. But never hold on to a stock blindly, without keeping up with its progress if its prospects dim, you need to notice. Nevertheless, long-term investments are often the best wealth builders. Five thousand dollars invested in PepsiCo 40 years ago would top $400,000 today. Dividends and Growth From PfizerTheres a lot to like about Pfizer (NYSE: PFE) these days. For starters, theres diversification, which expands Pfizers growth opportunities while reducing its risk. Back in 2000, one drug, Lipitor, accounted for 17 percent of Pfizers total revenue. Six drugs generated almost half of the companys total revenue. Today, Pfizers top-selling product, pneumococcal conjugate vaccine Prevnar/Prevnar 13, makes up less than 12 percent of Pfizers total revenue. The companys top six products produce less than a third of total revenue. Pfizer is tackling many areas, such as cardiovascular diseases, infectious diseases, central nervous system disorders, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, rare diseases and cancer. Drug companies futures are tied to their pipelines, and Pfizers is strong, with more than 90 clinical programs close to half of which are either in late-stage development or in the regulatory approval process. The company is aggressively developing partnerships and making strategic acquisitions, too. The two big buyouts last year of Medivation and Anacor allowed Pfizer to pick up prostate cancer drug Xtandi and eczema drug Eucrisa. Each of these acquired drugs could bring in annual revenue of $2 billion or more. Pfizer has also been returning a lot of money to shareholders in the form of stock buybacks and dividends. Its payout recently yielded 3.8 percent. With its broad portfolio and pipeline of potential, Pfizer appears to be a value hiding in plain sight. I was born in 1932, not 1738, and began as a modest housewares company that soon bought a bankrupt Vermont furniture factory. In 1939, I launched Early American-style furniture named for a Revolutionary War hero and I later took his name as my own. I pioneered the sales tactic of displaying furniture in roomlike settings. I dont just sell -I design and build most of my products, too. Today I sport 300 sales locations, plus nine manufacturing plants, mostly in the U.S. (About 75 percent of my offerings are made in North America.) Who am I? (Answer: Ethan Allen Interiors) Insider SellingQWhen company insiders sell millions of shares of company stock, who are the buyers? E.B., Riverside, CaliforniaAShares sold by insiders such as officers, directors or owners of a company are sold in the open market, where anyone with a brokerage account can buy them. Of course, if there are many more shares for sale than there are interested buyers, the price will drop until it reaches a point at which buyers will buy. Several million shares certainly seems like a massive amount, but remember that many companies have billions of shares, and in the course of a typical trading day, many have a high volume of trading. In recent months, Microsofts average daily volume was about 23 million shares, while Bank of Americas was around 90 million. It can be smart to examine insider purchases and sales for companies that interest you. Some occasional selling is routine, as many insiders get much of their compensation in the form of stock and must sell shares occasionally to generate cash. When insiders buy shares, its generally a bullish sign but one or more insiders unloading a large portion of their shares can be worrisome. You can look up insider transactions at websites such as ***QWhat do trade date and settlement date mean on my brokerage statements? T.H., Victoria, TexasAWhen you place an order to buy or sell a security with your broker, there will be a trade date and a settlement date. The trade date is the date the order was executed, and its the one that counts for tax purposes. The settlement date is when the cash or securities from the transaction arrive in your account.

HSBC Groups Beyond the Bricks an independent consumer research survey of 9,000 people in nine countries worldwide, including 1,009 respondents in the U.S. found that homeownership is a dream deferred but not dead for many Millennials around the world who name slow wage growth and housing price inflation as the greatest barriers to purchasing a home. The report also reveals the need for better financial planning as another significant hurdle for Millennials. According to David Gates, U.S. head of mortgage origination and sales for HSBC, the study highlights that young people strongly value homeownership, yet there are significant challenges to making the dream a reality The perfect storm of stagnating salaries and rising house prices, paired with the need for improved financial planning can make buying a home a deferred reality. Nearly three-quarters (71 percent) of Millennials are saving more money for a deposit and waiting to earn a higher salary before buying a property, the report finds. With a 1.9 percent increase in salary growth expected in 2017 and average property prices climbing by 4.8 percent last year, the dream of owning a home remains a challenge for many. Of the 71 percent of Millennials who seek to both save and earn more money, 49 percent feel they are being held back because they cannot afford to buy the type of property that they would like. The report also finds that many Millennials do not have their house in order when it comes to financial planning for a home purchase. Among non-owners intending to buy a home in the next two years, nearly one in three (32 per-WEEK OF APRIL 6-12, 2017B12 | WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYREAL ESTATE Built in 2014 in the Moorings, this Caribbean-inspired residence has a coastal transitional feel to it.

cent) have no overall budget in mind and a further 54 percent have only set an approximate budget. As a result, 57 percent of Millennials who bought a home in the last two years ended up overspending their budget. On the other hand, the millennial generation is willing to consider making big sacrifices to afford a home. Among non-owners intending to buy, 55 percent would consider spending less on leisure and going out, 41 percent would consider buying a smaller than ideal place, and 27 percent would even be prepared to delay having children. Financial support from parents can make a big difference when saving for a home, and 28 percent of Millennials who bought their own home turned to the bank of Mom and Dad as a source of funding. HSBC research identifies four actions that Millennials can take to help make their homeownership dream a reality: Plan early and dont underestimate the deposit. Budget beyond the purchase price to account for extra costs other than the home purchase. Consider what sacrifices you can make to save more and faster. Get a full view of your finances and find a home loan that suits your needs. Millennials are defined as those born between 1981 and 1998. The findings are based on a survey of homeowners and non-owners aged 18 or older from a nationally representative online sample in eight countries and a nationally representative face-to-face sample in the UAE. The research was conducted by Kantar TNS in October and November 2016.

The Maroon5 front man had no idea how prophetic his comment would be. Ms. Weston wound up being one of the shows eight finalists (and one of Mr. Levines last two contestants). As soon as she graduated from Gulf Coast High School she moved to Nashville to pursue her singer/songwriter career full-time. Since then, shes produced a couple of albums and performed at festivals and colleges, doing more than 70 gigs a year. But recently, Ray Nesbit, who recorded Ms. Westons first album in Naples and played guitar on it, had a brainstorm: Fleetwood Mac is playing its farewell tour in 2018. Why not have Ms. Weston put on a Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks tribute show? She loved the idea. Stevie Nicks is one of her favorite artists. And even though Fleetwood Macs Rumors album celebrated its 40th anniversary this year, Ms. Weston, 24, is very familiar with the music. Shes listened to it since she was a child. When her parents played it at home and in the car, It just made you feel good, she says, adding she never tired of it. And when Ms. Weston started playing music herself, I would love, love, love to cover Landslide. (Stevie Nicks) voice was so different and cool and inspiring.

University Press of Florida. 280 pages. Hardcover, $28.Bob Kealing makes the case that the best Elvis is the earliest Elvis and that the managerial strategies of Tom Parker kept a great American original from reaching his full potential. By focusing on the emergence of Elvis Presley during his Florida tours in 1955 and 1956, Mr. Kealing can handle in lavish detail the months of a young, unschooled performers leap from total unknown in May of 1955 to by August of 1956 a celebrated icon of a burgeoning culture without a name. A hillbilly rocker with a sexy performance style, Elvis had the girls swooning, their parents fuming and the music industry paying close attention. Mr. Parker helped shape the Elvis who caught fire, but his dominating and generally conservative decisions about girlfriends, songs and only too soon insipid movie roles, repressed rather than released Elviss unique talents. He shielded Elvis from other influences and demanded total loyalty. Packaged in road tours to Daytona Beach, Tampa, Fort Myers, Ocala, Orlando, Jacksonville and elsewhere, Elvis and the two musicians who accompanied him nurtured a distinctive sound blending various musical and cultural traditions. They learned by doing. They didnt begin as headliners, but in a remarkably short time ascended to top billing. As they moved from smaller venues to more prestigious ones, they attracted both critical and supportive journalists who helped shape expectations. And Mr. Kealing has the details. By ransacking print coverage of the young troubadour, interviewing scores of people who met him along the way and following the one-lane paths of those early tours, the author captures the spirit of time and place as a new kind of music made its way up the charts. He must have tracked down almost every young woman still alive with whom Elvis flirted in about a year and a half of performances. No longer young, they have great memories to share. As have other biographers and music historians, Mr. Kealing pays attention to the nurturing of Elvis by the genial owner of Sun Records in Memphis. When Mr. Parker pushed for the big time by switching Elvis over to the giant but less edgy RCA, something was already lost. It was West Palm Beach, Sarasota, Pensacola, Miami, Lakeland, Waycross (Ga.), St. Petersburg and then on to the greater stages of bigger cities, television and movies. Its as if once out of the Florida orbit, Elvis lost his essential self, smothered under packaging that distorted his true nature and gift. A section about the early 1960s provides an elaborate treatment of Elviss Florida time filming Follow That Dream. One of his better movies, this opportunity gained him the embraces of his co-star, Anne Helm. Through his characterizations of Ms. Helm and other young women who were temporary or would-be paramours, the author pins down the qualities that made Elvis so appealing. In the same section, he provides a telling analysis of the TV special that brought Frank Sinatra and Elvis together. The great number of people publicists, musicians, fans, hangers-on who Elvis met and impressed during his early career reminds us of how dizzying life on the road can be. You never know who will show up. Mr. Kealing points out the influence that Elvis had on two future stars Gram Parsons and Tom Petty who were essentially still children when they first saw The King in concert. This book has the energy of Elviss hip-shaking and leg-shaking performances. At once mythic and credible, its a kind of creation story. Its a time and place not to be forgotten, and Bob Kealing makes it exquisitely memorable.About the authorBob Kealing is an Edward R. Murrow and five-time Emmy award-winning broadcast journalist who has appeared on Dateline NBC, C-Span the Today show, CNN, MSNBC and CBS This Morning. He is the author of four books, including Life of the Party, now in development as a major motion picture. Mr. Kealings research has led to the establishment of the Jack Kerouac House in Orlando and Gram Parsons Derry Down in Winter Haven, both historic landmarks. He lives north of Orlando with his wife and two children. 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.

I tried to make the best of it because I knew I had a lot of years ahead of me at that label, she continues. And I had a really good run at it. I had a lot of success and was able to ride that fine line between what I loved, what the label needed and what I had contracted myself to do, which was write and perform commercially successful music. The increasing radio tendency toward pop-country was a huge impetus for Ms. Womack to record The Way Im Livin, which she says is the first record that I did exactly what I wanted to do. Its the type of country music she feels like she was born to make. Its been called the best (album) of (Ms. Womacks) career (SPIN), a late-night honky-tonk full of broken bottles and shattered dreams (Esquire) and a terrific album rooted in traditional countrys willingness to confront the realities of addiction, adultery, bad romantic choices and small-town blues (Nashville Scene). The album was nominated for Best Country Album at the 2015 Grammy Awards; the song Chances Are was nominated for both Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song at the 2016 Grammy Awards. The title track features Ms. Womack at her most plaintive yet powerful best and the entire album is imbued with her distinctive heart and passion. Ms. Womack wrote about half of the material and called on songwriter friends for the rest. When I was doing the commercial game, I had a whole staff of people at the record label looking for songs that would work on the radio. With this record, I personally went to songwriting friends like Mindy Smith, Hayes Carll and Neil Young they had songs they knew I would love to record. Ms. Womack and her husband, producer Frank Liddell, call Nashville home base, but both were raised in Texas. They went back to the Longhorn State to record the album to make sure the record felt like home, she says. The couple has two daughters, Aubrey and Anna. Following in her mothers enormous footsteps, Aubrey recently signed with Warner Bros. Records and is currently on the road promoting her own album. Like any mother would be, Womack is incredibly proud. Its amazing, she says, except I dont get to see her enough. Shes my little pal. Her music is different from mine, but she signed with a big label and is playing the commercial Nashville game, so in that sense she is taking after me. Given Ms. Womacks shift out of the commercial record-making landscape, she naturally has mixed feelings about Aubreys success. Its tough when you have a certain kind of music you want to make and the label has a formula they want you to go by, she says. It doesnt allow for much creative freedom. But Aubrey is trying to figure out her place and what she loves to do, and Im confident that shell do what I did and find a little niche and still be able to stay in that commercial game and stay happy. doesnt sound super-duper pretty. It sounds real and connected. She got to meet Ms. Nicks backstage at an Adam Levine concert after Ms. Nicks did an encore number with Mr. Levine. The Fleetwood Mac singer told Ms. Weston she wouldnt be there if not for Ms. Weston singing Leather and Lace on The Voice. Ms. Weston and her Gypsy Tribute band will perform the songs of Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 12, at the Southwest Florida Performing Arts Center in Bonita Springs. In addition to Ms. Weston and Mr. Nesbit, the Gypsy Tribute band consists of Dawn Sellai on vocals and acoustic guitar, Alan James on guitar and vocals, David Brawley on bass and Phil Jelatis on keyboards. While theyre paying homage to Fleetwood Mac and Ms. Nicks, theyre not a tribute band. No wigs, no costumes. We dont want to look like them, Mr. Nesbit says. We want to pay homage to these great songs and singers. The set list includes Gold Dust Woman, Gypsy, Landslide, Dreams, Edge of 17 and Tell Me Lies. All their biggest hits, Mr. Nesbit says. Their first Gypsy Tribute performance, which was just a few months ago, opened with a slow version of Rhiannon. Mr. Nesbit recalls, All we could see (from the stage) was jaws dropping, and big wide eyes. People were crying by the time we finished our first tune. We received a standing ovation after the first song. Ms. Weston is obviously so perfect for this stuff, he adds. You will go, Oh, wow! Casey is the real deal With this, shes not trying to sound like Stevie Nicks, but her vibe is just there. Shes singing the way she sings. I thought it would be special, but I had no idea just how special it was going to be. He adds the band members have worked hard to get the instrumentation just right. Its taken a lot of time to make sure we pay homage to the band with the instrumentation. Thats part of it, a specific vibe they have as individuals when they play together. Ms. Weston is still writing songs in Nashville and playing various venues. Shes planning a trip to Los Angeles in May to write and record with a producer there, and says fans can look for new music from her later in 2017 or in 2018. Does she keep in touch with her coach on The Voice, Mr. Levine? When I was first off the show we kept in touch a bit, but his life is so crazy, she says. But anytime I reach out about posting something about a record, he is always supportive of that. As every artist needs to, shes finding her own way in the business. A lot of my mentors are my peers and people I surround myself with who are also artists and songwriters, she says. Theyre the ones who teach me a lot. We learn it together. Were on this adventure together, as opposed to people who have been there and done that. Established artists made their music in a very different time, she says, noting that theres more music out nowadays, and accessible technology allows people to create a record in their living room. But she wouldnt want to be doing any other than making music. I know God gave me a voice and something to say and a way to say it, she says. Im just doing my best to share the music that I need to.

Gurney comedy about Later Life choices BY TOM HALLSpecial to Florida WeeklyA.R. Gurneys Later Life runs Thursday through Sunday, April 6-9, at the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs. Catalina Monterrosa directs members of the CFABS Community Players in the comedy about Austin and Ruth, who meet at a cocktail party overlooking Boston Harbor 30 years after they were once an item. Austin has spent his entire life convinced that something terrible is bound to happen to him. Now a multiple divorcee, Ruths personal life is in such turmoil that mutual friends look to Austin as Ruths last shot at normalcy. At the same time, they hope the wildly unpredictable Ruth will help pry Austin from his mundane life of quiet depression. Comically, and sometimes painfully, these two people rediscover each other and themselves while a bevy of freespirited guests rally to remind them of the infinite possibilities that life holds if only they choose to pursue them. Mr. Gurneys plays often explore the theme of a declining upper-class, white Anglo-Saxon Protestant life in contemporary America. The Wall Street Journal has called his works penetratingly witty studies of the WASP ascendancy in retreat. Several of his works are loosely based on his patrician upbringing. While opinions vary, The New Yorker posits that Later Life may very well be the best of the 46 plays the Yale graduate has penned since the early s. Later Life reminds us all that the choices we make can lead to either turmoil or opportunity. The choice is ours. So are the consequences. These Shining Lives sheds light on the Radium Girls of the 1920s BY PATRICE SHIELDSSpecial to Florida WeeklyThe Naples Players present Melanie Marnichs historical drama, These Shining Lives, through Saturday, April 15, in the Tobye Studio at the Sugden Community Theatre. 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 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 sharptongued 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 (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 resilient efforts for justice set in motion workplace safety standards and workers compensation measures to protect future generations.

WWW.NAPLESZOO.ORG SUNNY DAYS,CLOUDEd LEOPARDSSUNNY DAYS,CLOUDEd LEOPARDS ARTS COMMENTARYA sterling production of Shakespeares ultimate story about revengeForget those action movies where a man grabs an entire arsenal of weapons and goes out seeking revenge against all those whove wronged him. Those films have nothing on Shakespeares The Merchant of Venice, the ultimate show about vengeance. No, it doesnt have machine guns or grenades or things getting blown up. What it does have is a dagger in the hands of a man whos socially scorned, spit upon and demeaned, who suddenly gets the upper hand. Now he has an opportunity to get his revenge. Suddenly, everyone whos never shown him any mercy in his life is screaming for him to show the very mercy theyve refused him. Yet when circumstances shift, they again show him no mercy, taking away everything that means anything to him, including his means of livelihood, his identity, his self-esteem, even his religion. It reminded me of the Gospel verses that question what good is it if we just show love and forgiveness to those that we know and love. With Kristen Coury directing and input from Shakespeare scholar Gail Kern Paster, Gulfshore Playhouse puts on a sterling production of this classic thats jaw-droppingly stunning in presentation and staging and costume. The Merchant of Venice, is, of course, more than a play about revenge. Its an examination of love, sacrifice, consequences and mercy, both given and denied.Bassanio (Sam Ashdown) asks his friend Antonio (Timothy Carter) for yet another loan, because he wants to woo Portia, a rich heiress he has an eye on. He feels he needs to have money in order to stand out from all the other suitors. Antonio agrees, but as his finances are tied up, he borrows money from Shylock (Larry Paulsen), a man he has literally spit on. He foolishly agrees to give a literal pound of his flesh from wherever Shylock wants if he does not repay him within the agreed upon three-month period.As in other of Shakespeares plays, there are multiple love plots, mistaken identity/ characters in disguise and twists of fate. Things suddenly fall apart when Antonio realizes he cant pay back Shylock by the deadline. And Shylock is demanding his pound of flesh; he wants to cut out Antonios heart as payment. Dont worry about following the story; youre pulled into this play as if by an undercurrent, and will understand the plot and the Elizabethan language clearly.It contains many humorous moments, despite the fates that befall some its characters.Jeffrey Binder is particularly funny as a doofus servant with barely two brain cells to keep each other company, and also as the Prince of Arragon, a dirty old man who wants to marry the young Portia. Hes so decrepit and doddering that he falls asleep on his feet; Mr. Binders portrayal provoked peals of laughter from the audience. And William Oliver Watkins as the Prince of Morocco, another suitor, also provides laughs as he struts and swaggers and fills the room with his big voice and even bigger ego. Sofia Jean Gomez positively glows onstage as the winsome Portia, with a quick wit and a charismatic personality. She reminded me, at times, of a younger Meryl Streep, with her instinctual choices in how she plays her character. We, as an audience, take to her from her very first moment on stage, laughing with her ladyin-waiting and confidante, Nerissa (Ally Carey). Angela Janas as Jessica and Zachary Martens as Lorenzo round out the cast in a subplot. The two are yet another couple who fall in love and find happiness together. Charles Murdock Lucas provides a set of stone and marble that works for various locales in Venice, while Lauren Gastons costumes are lavishly lush in color and texture. Mr. Paulsen is masterful in his role as Shylock, making us feel his every loss. His If you prick us, do we not bleed speech comes from the heart, reminding us that we are all the same under the skin. He argues that whatever villainy he has, hes been taught by the Christians. And these un-Christ-like Christians have unfortunately taught him well. Though Ms. Coury hasnt added any dialogue at the end of the play, she does have one brief unspoken scene that is jarring, making me rethink the entire play and my feelings about the other characters. Its also somewhat ambiguous and probably leads to many discussions after the show about what exactly she is trying to say. Many days after seeing this outstanding production of The Merchant of Venice, I was still thinking about it, turning it over and over in my mind. This is Shakespeare by professionals, who make it very entertaining and accessible and definitely thought-provoking.

C12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 6-12, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY PUZZLES SPLITTING THE LAND HOROSCOPESARIES (March 21 to April 19) The Lamb loves to be surrounded by flocks of admirers. But be careful that someone doesnt take his or her admiration too far. Use your persuasive skills to let him or her down easily. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a good time to begin setting far-reaching goals and connecting with new contacts. Aspects also favor strengthening old relationships personal and/or professional. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A personal disappointment should be viewed as a valuable learning experience. Go over what went wrong and see where a change in tactics might have led to a mor e positive outcome. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Dont leave projects unfinished or personal obligations unresolved, or you might find yourself tripping over all those loose ends later on. A relative has important news.

Although you might prefer the tried-and-true, once you take a good look at this new idea, you might feel more receptive to it. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Much work has yet to be done to polish a still-rough idea into something with significant potential. Expect to encounter some initial rejection, but stay with it nonetheless. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) There still might be some communication problems in the workplace, but they should be resolved soon. Meanwhile, that tip from a friend should be checked out.

Consider this deal from a team-of-four match. At both tables the final contract was three notrump, but the contract was made at one table while it was defeated at the other. Both Wests led a diamond. At the first table, East won the queen with the ace and returned the nine to the king. South had eight sure tricks at this point, and in an effort to gain a ninth he led a low spade to the ten. West took his queen but had no satisfactory return. When he led a heart, declarer won in dummy and played a spade to the king. West took his ace and cashed the jack of diamonds, which he would otherwise have lost, and South made exactly three notrump. At the second table, the defense was more effective. On the opening diamond lead, East signaled with the nine instead of winning with the ace. Declarer could not prevail against this thoughtful play. After the queen held, he also led a spade and finessed the ten, but West won with the queen and returned a diamond. East took dummys king with the ace and returned the five, allowing Wests J-8 to score two tricks over Souths 10-7. Thus, the defenders at this table scored three diamonds and two spades to put South down one. At the second table, East recognized that it would be better to take the ace of diamonds later in the play, when he could more effectively lead through whatever holding South might have in diamonds.

Danny Boyles sequel to his 1996 hit isnt the adrenaline rush the original is, but it nonetheless tells a compelling story thats worth a look. Rated R. Beauty and the Beast (Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Ian McKellen) In Disneys live-action remake of its animated classic, Belle (Ms. Watson) is trapped in the Beasts (Ms. Stevens) enchanted castle, but is helped by a clock (Mr. McKellen) and candelabra (Ewan McGregor), among other living furniture. It remains a sweet love story at its core, and the visuals are breathtaking. Still, the filmmakers took an animated 84-minute work of perfection and bloated it to a live-action 129 minutes that feels unnecessary. Rated PG.The Sense of an Ending (Jim Broadbent, Emily Mortimer, Charlotte Rampling) An elderly British man (Mr. Broadbent) has trouble retrieving a diary that is in the possession of the woman (Ms. Rampling) who was his girlfriend 40 years earlier. There are some nice themes and performances, but the ending, ironically, leaves a bit to be desired. Rated PG-13. Kong: Skull Island (Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. 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, as 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 until well, 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.

LATEST FILMSSmurfs: The Lost Village Is it worth $10? YesIn another submission to the gorge of Hollywood unoriginality, now even the Smurfs have a reboot. No, its not particularly good. But it does have a strong message of individuality for little girls, which is certainly a worthwhile virtue to showcase. If only it had more virtues. Smurfs: The Lost Village is not a follow up to the live actionbased Smurfs movies from 2011 and 2013. Neil Patrick Harris isnt here, and Hank Azaria has retired his Gargamel. Instead, this is a fully animated effort thats purely for kids. Theres nothing here for anyone over the age of 13, let alone adults. It starts by introducing us to the world of the Smurfs, and reminding us that each Smurf is named after his defining characteristic. Theres Jokey (Gabriel Iglesias), Vanity (Tituss Burgess), Grouchy (Jake Johnson), Nosey (Kelly Asbury, who also directed the film) and, of course, Papa Smurf (Mandy Patinkin). Fully formed characters these are not. The lone exception is Smurfette (Demi Lovato), who was made of clay and is not a real Smurf, which means she doesnt have a defining characteristic. One would think that in an all-male community of Smurfs, being female would be a defining characteristic but thats thinking too deep about a world of little blue people. Smurfettes quest to find herself includes running off with Clumsy (Jack McBrayer), Brainy (Danny Pudi) and Hefty (Joe Manganiello) to find a secret lost village. Evil wizard Gargamel (Rainn Wilson), still trying to capture Smurfs to harness their magic for his own gain, also seeks the lost village. A race ensues. Take a wild guess who wins. Julia Roberts, Ellie Kemper and Michelle Rodriguez also provide voices, and their characters make the movie better. The humor here is cutesy and for kids. Its rated PG for mild action and rude humor. I dont recall any humor being rude, but the action was certainly mild. A bit forced and lacking in tension as well. The only inspired action sequence finds Gargamel and four Smurfs racing down river rapids that dont flow the way we expect water to flow but then even this plays out in typical ways. The dull action could be compensated for by the animation, but that too from Sony Pictures Animation leaves a bit to be desired. The Smurfs inhabit a bright and colorful world, and though whats on screen is certainly bright and colorful, its not dynamic. For a better version of something similar, watch Trolls from last year. At least that has catchy pop songs. All that said, the bottom line is that Smurfs: The Lost Village is aimed squarely at youngsters, and because its mildly amusing and has a great message for girls, it warrants a moderate recommendation. A movie can only be as good as its trying to be, and when youre trying to empower little girls with a strong message and succeed, its my responsibility to give credit where its due. Credit granted. H l W t a T e dan >> Chef Gordon Ramsay voices Baker Smurf but its easy to miss, because he only has one line.

A pioneer in the field of autobiographical performance art, Mr. Miller has particularly focused on LGBTQrelated issues in his work. His pieces tell of family trees and the LGBTQ histories often hidden in their branches. Since the beginning of this year he has performed and worked with students at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts-Winston-Salem, Vanderbilt University and the University of Minnesota-Minneapolis. After FGCU he heads to Bowling Green State University in Kentucky and Ohio Wesleyan University before going to Paisley Arts Centre in Scotland. He is the recipient of numerous grants from the National Endowment for the Arts but became a household name in 1990 when he was awarded an NEA Solo Performer Fellowship that was overturned due to the gay themes in his work. He and three other artists, who have become known as the NEA 4, sued the government in a case that went all the way to the Supreme Court. Angels in America author Tony Kushner has been quoted as saying, Tim Miller has been at the heart of things, giving voice to what matters most, for the entirety of his career. His work is an extraordinary fusion of history, observation, politics and a kind of shamanism. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, April 7-8, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 9. Shows contain adult language and situations and are not recommended for children under 18 years of age. Tickets are $10 ($7 for students) and can be purchased at www.theaterlab. or at the door (depending on availability). Tim Miller is a pioneer in the field of autobiographical performance art.

Winston Link Museum in Roanoke, Va., on display through April 22. While in Staunton, Va., for an industrial photography job in 1955 O. Winston Links longstanding love of railroads became focused on the nearby Norfolk and Western Railway. The last major Class 1 railroad yet to make the transition from steam to diesel motive power, the N&W had refined its use of steam locomotives and earned a reputation for precision transportation. Mr. Link, a New York-based commercial photographer, went on to chronicle the last years of the N&W steam locomotives, capturing more than 2,400 images and 100 7-inch reels of sound recordings in 21 trips made between 1955-60. His most famous photographs are night compositions made possible by meticulous setups and elaborate lighting. Life Along the Line offers an expansive view of Mr. Links multidimensional portfolio and a moving account of the people and communities surrounding Americas last steam railroad. Set in Naples first passenger train station, the restored Naples Depot Museum takes visitors back to Floridas railroading heydays of the Roaring Twenties and tells how technology and transportation helped Naples grow from a village of 300 souls to the seaside city of today. The museum is at 1051 Fifth Ave. Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. MondaySaturday. Admission is free. For more information, call 262-6525 or visit www. COLLECTION OF THE O.

Chalet Suzanne served up memories, as well as foodIs there anything that brings us together more closely than food? Probably not. My maternal grandmother and I could spend hours looking through my greatgrandmothers recipe box. We didnt cook any of those recipes, mind you, but we talked about them. The buttersco tch pie? It was marked George Williams Favorite. It was underlined, too. George was my grandfather and his mother and her helpers spoiled him. The Indiana chili sauce? Oooh, that was good. There was a movie of your grandmother bottling that on her outdoor stove, Gr andma would say. We all remember a favorite dish. My paternal grandmother would rhapsodize over the peanut soup shed been served 20 years before at the Clewiston Inn or at Vero Beachs Driftwood Inn, where shed gone for a honeymoon after her second marriage, in 1958 she couldnt remember which. It didnt really matter that she couldnt remember where she had savored the soup. She and her friend Ann had tried and failed to recreate the recipe and theyd had fun. Of course, had they been to Chalet Suzanne, they easily could have had a souvenir of the place by which to remember it, either in the form of soup and grapefruit bowls or canned versions of the soups themselves. It makes me chuckle when I see a postcard or other souvenir of the place today. I remember the reverence with which folks treated Chalet Suzanne. Oooh, theyd say. Were spending the weekend at Chalet Suzanne. It was a special occasion place, and the restaurant and inn, deep in the heart of Central Florida, were world famous. The food won kudos from around the world back in the day, though it seems rather quaint to the more sophisticated palates of today broiled grapefruit topped with chicken liver was a favorite. So was the Romaine soup, which apparently contained no Romaine, but later came to be known as Moon Soup because astronauts had carried cans of the stuff into space. Chalet Suzanne drew legions of fans to Lake Wales for 83 years, from the 1930s until it closed in 2014. But Im sure that anyone who has spent any time at all in Florida has a memory of the resort even if theyve never stayed there. I hesitate to use the word iconic to describe a place, but it fits. And so do the memories. t S s i b t scott SIMMONS COLLECTORS CORNER Wednesday, April 12, 2017 7 : 3 0 p m W a n g O p e r a C e n t e r J u d y a n d J o h n H u s h o n T h e a t e r 2 4 0 8 L i n w o o d A v A A e n u e N a p l e s a d u l t s $ 3 0 a d u l t V I P $ 4 0 s t u d e n t s / c h i l d r e n $ 1 0 V I P ~ I n c l u d e s p r e f e r r e d s e a t i n g a n d a f t e r p a r t y w i t h t h e p e r f o r m e r s Reservations: or (239) 775-2800 g / g / / v o c a l i s t D a v i d C J o h n s o n ; d r u m m e r B i l l E P e t e r s o n ; a n d o u r f i r s t l o o k a t J e r r y F i e r r o v o c a l i s t p e r c u s s i o n i s t a n d v i r t u o s o h a r m o n i c a p l a y e r S p S S o n s o r s r r o f t h t t e C A C C P A P P J a z a a z z z & B l u l l e s S e r i r r e i i s i n i i c l c c u l l d e d d : Naples Weekly, Susanne E.

BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELWhen did the Easter bunny become part of the tradition of the religious Easter holiday? Easter began to be observed hundreds of years ago to commemorate the rising of Christ from the dead, and it has gradually become associated with the themes of the renewal of life in nature and flowers. It was not until about the 18th century that the Easter egg became part of the celebration. The egg has long been a symbol of eternal life, and decorating and hunting for eggs became part of the symbolism of the holiday. As years passed, cardboard and papier-mache eggs were used, then real eggshells with the liquid egg blown out through a small hole. Other countries used sugar eggs, wooden eggs and eventually plastic. All eggs were decorated. Soon there were Easter egg hunts and Easter egg rolls, but still no Easter bunny. During the early 18th century, the Pennsylv ania Germans suggested that, in spring, the Easter Bunny would hide eggs or perhaps put them in an upsidedown hat that was left out overnight. That custom soon grew to using not just a hat, but a basket to be filled with eggs, candy and fake green grass. By the 20th century, there were stuffedtoy Easter bunnies, porcelain figurines of bunnies and a German business making papier-mache and cardboard Easter bunny candy containers, which were sold in the U.S. and filled with candy. By the 1920s, there were tin or glass candy containers shaped like bunnies and other Easter symbols and, of course, toys. Holiday collecting is becoming more popular. Easter items include religious pictures and memorabilia, baskets, bunnies, chicks, ducks, nut cups, place cards, postcards and store advertising featuring Easter themes. Prices have gone down and up since 1980. Q: I have dishes with bowls that look like heads of lettuce and plates that are a single lettuce leaf. They are marked with the sigThis papier-mache candy container, made in 1900, is an Easter bunny in a peasant dress. She carries an Easter basket but no eggs. At 16 inches tall, the rabbit probably was a store display.

Can you tell me anything about them? A: Large leaves probably were one of the first plates used at a feast. So it was not surprising that plates were shaped like cabbage or lettuce leaves by the 1600s. Leaf-shaped European majolica, plates were made by Delft, and by the 18th-century, they also were crafted by English potteries Wedgwood, Longton Hall, Chelsea and Minton, and French potteries Jacob Petit and Palissy. There was Etruscan Majolica from Pennsylvania, and modern giftware items like California Dodie Thayer ceramics. This Palm Beach dishware was made during the 1960s and 0s, by Ms. Thayer, a Jupiter artist who decended from the pioneer DuBois family. Dishes were made from molds of actual cabbage or lettuce leaves or full heads of the vegetable. Pink, red, yellow and green sets were made. They are signed with the artists name. Recently, the Lettuce Ware dishes were reproduced for the Tory Burch shops in green or white. Full sets are made with cups, plates, tureens and more. A new salad plate costs $40. Leaf-shaped dishes of all ages are popular with collectors, but only those made of porcelain or after 1900 should be used to serve food. Q: Id like to know something about F. Winkles & Co. pottery. Is it old? A: F. Winkle & Co. made earthenware at the Colonial Pottery in Stoke, Staffordshire, England, from 1890 to 1931. Ridgways took over F. Winkle & Co. in 1931. The Colonial Pottery became Whieldon Sanitary Potteries Ltd., later a subsidiary of Doulton Co. The factory was torn down around 2000. Pottery by F. Winkle & Co. is selling for low prices. Dinner plates sell for $10-$25, br ead and b utter plates for $9, a fruit dish for $15. Serving dishes sell for higher prices. Q: I have a chair that looks like it is made of long, curved horns. When and where were these used? A: You have a very American chair. Chairs made of buffalo, elk or Texas longhorn steer horns were made from horns left behind at the slaughter houses or discarded by hunters. The horns had a graceful curved shape and when positioned carefully, they created a chair frame with a curved back, legs and arms. An upholstered seat was added and, in some cases, some trim from other pieces of horn. Matching footstools also were made. The chairs were not made for comfort, but were popular with hunters and those who wanted memories of the old West. There are pictures that show President Teddy Roosevelt and President Lincoln both had horn chairs that were gifts. Your chair could bring $1,000 or more at auction.

The actress who played one of the kidnapped sisters is Cassidy Gifford, and I wondered if she was any relation to Kathie Lee and Frank. What else has she been in? Vivian F., via emailA: Cassidy is indeed the daughter of Kathie Lee and the late Frank Gifford. The gorgeous and talented 23-year-old is just starting to come up in the business, having been featured in The Suite Life on Deck, Blue Bloods, God's Not Dead and Caged No More, along with a handful of others. Next up for Cassidy is a starring role in the Hallmark Channel original movie Like Cats and Dogs, which premieres April 15 at 9 p.m. Cassidy plays Lara Hale, a dog lover, who through some mix-up is stuck sharing a vacation rental for the summer with Spencer, who is a cat lover. Cassidy was excited to get to star in this rom-com, telling me: Its the story of two young people seemingly stuck in their ways and not realizing that is what is getting in their way. Its the tale of two people who are at different but similar points in their lives, and they don't realize that what they need is the opposite of what they are getting. I think we get so easily stuck in ruts of complacency and feeling comfortable that even small changes to our daily life can be great as long as were open to them. There is a healthy, happy medium. Q: What does one of my favorite actors, Peter Sarsgaard, have coming up? Dani T. in Georgia A: Hulu recently announced that Peter has been cast in its original new series The Looming Tower, a drama that traces the rising threat of Osama bin Laden and alQaida, taking a controversial look at how the rivalry between the CIA and FBI inadvertently might have set the stage for the tragedy of 9/11 and the war in Iraq. Peter plays Martin Schmidt, a CIA analyst who invariably believes he's by far the smartest person in the room. Q: I just saw that Bryan Adams is touring to promote his new album. Will he come back around to the States? Danni F., via emailA: Right now Bryan is in South America on his Get Up tour. Hell be back in the U.S. at the end of May, starting in California and working his way around America. Ill be at the Sept. 10 show in Orlando for my early birthday present to myself. Go to to see when he'll be near you.

I dont think so. We made a stop at Royal Scoop after school recently just because we could and I blew my pre-cruise diet with a gorgeous sundae made with coffee and pecan ice cream, chocolate sauce, crushed chocolate cookies, cinnamon coffee powder and whipped cream. I did stop myself halfway through (why totally ruin my progress?), just in time to see my son deep-dive into his scoop of Superman ice cream and emerge covered in a fine layer of blue vanilla. Lovely. Lindsey Nesmith PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: C Level Bistro & Wine Bar, 4450 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 221-7046 The menu mixes modern twists with some Old World classics. Think steak au poivre and crepes Suzette, but factor in microgreens and nasturtium garnishes. Start with the C Level sampler trio of zesty ceviche, lush and airy pat and spinachartichoke spread thats less heavy than most versions. C Level offers a fair amount of lighter seafood options, but its hard to pass up perfectly cooked herb-crusted rack of lamb and classic tournedos Rossini, twin filets of tender beef topped with thin slices of pat de foie gras and draped in Prigourdine sauce, a silky demi-glace sauce enriched with truffles. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2016 Fernandez the BullMidtown, 3375 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 653-9097 For 25-plus years, the first Fernandez the Bull has existed in various locations. Now a chic-looking sibling on Pine Ridge Road offers with indoor and outdoor seating, a full bar and a terrific staff. Start with a wellchilled and minty guava mojito. Savor some beef empanadas or crisp fried calamari, then move on to an entre like the chicken with mojo and garlic sauce or shrimp and mussels in white wine and tomato sauce. Sides of moros (rice and black beans), fried yucca or fried plantains are all great choices. For dessert, we loved the guava mango mousse cheesecake. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2015 Figs Grille, 25987 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 390-1700 Those whove only experienced calamari battered and fried might find Figs grilled version a happy revelation: long tender tubes of squid are charred just enough to appeal to the eye and the taste buds, then marinated in olive oil, garlic and fresh herbs. Fried shrimp are lightly breaded and garnished with delicious figs, mandarin orange-red onion relish and soy ginger glaze. Fig chutney and port wine sauce give roasted duck a fruity flourish. A lightly sweet anisette-tinged beurre blanc proved a heavenly pairing for miso-marinated black cod, served with unexpected sides of spinach sauted with tomatoes and white beans and a crusty Parmesan-angel hair pasta cake. House-made desserts are worth the calories. Full bar.

Warm pita triangles come with balsamic reduction, sundried tomato butter and olive oil as a starter. An appetizer of grilled octopus with baby spinach, preserved lemon, roasted garlic cloves, heirloom tomatoes and smoked paprika was smoky and delicious. Lamb keftedes and falafel was a classic pairing that Id recommend two share. The cioppino was bountiful, full of sea bass, mussels, shrimp and clams in a roasted Roma tomato sauce. The star of the meal, Mediterranean sea bass arrived in a bamboo steamer filled with Moroccan spices, lavender, golden raisins and pomegranate seeds. A limoncello parfait proved a refreshing finish. Beer and wine served.

Start with the Pine Island clams in red curry (if available). The sauce is good enough to drink on its own. Pan-seared triggerfish was expertly cooked, enhanced by a mango and avocado salsa. Mustardroasted all-natural Joyce Farms free-range chicken breast with mustard breadcrumbs, soft-boiled egg and pecorino sauce was an imaginative way to dress up poultry.

CUISINE REVIEWPublic House takes noise equals energy to new levelsIve long been a fan of Michael Hernandezs restaurants, enjoying meals at Bistro 821, Zoes, HobNob Kitchen & Bar and MidTown Kitchen & Bar, to name just a few. So I was looking forward to trying out his newest venture, Public House, which opened in January at Immokalee and Goodlette-Frank roads. The food has a fanciful flair similar to that of HobNob and MidTown no doubt the work of Executive Chef Tony Biagetti and there are inventive cocktails as well as craft beer. But the atmosphere is a departure from Mr. Hernandezs other establishments. Although MidTown has an industrial feel and a higher-than-average noise level, it also has a stylishness about it, whereas Public House feels more like a New York City warehouse. The floors and some walls sport distressed wood. The ceilings are industrial, as are most of the lights except the ones on which the shades are made of recycled burlap coffee bags. Its divided into three sections, with dining areas on either side of a very large bar. We sat in a booth in the dining area nearest the entrance on the half wall that separates it from the bar. It didnt feel like there a division, however, as the happy hour crowd was feeling no pain and was so loud we had to lean over the table to talk. It took our server about 10 minutes to get to us but once he did, he was fairly consistent in attending to us. There is a decent wine list as well as creative cocktails. The Cool Cucumber ($8) was precisely that: a refreshing blend of Pearl cucumber vodka, lime juice, simple syrup and fresh cucumber. We munched small corn muffins and fresh butter w hile perusing the menu thats divided into Bites and Snacks, Little Plates, Soups and Salads, Large Plates and Sides. Mushroom flatbread ($14) from the Little Plates was a great starter. The crust was thin and crisp, topped with roasted garlic ricotta and fontina cheeses and plenty of mushrooms. It arrived hot and fragrant. A bowl of black bean and sweet potato soup ($10) was hot, bountiful and, owing to the potatoes, possessed a brighter flavor than standard black bean soup. A trio of blackened mahi tostados ($12), also from the Little Plates section of the menu, was ample for an entre. In addition to the fish, which was lightly seasoned, they held roasted tomato and avocado salsa, cowboy caviar and jalapeno lime crema along with crisp strips of onion. While the mix of ingredients was satisfying, the accompaniments were all cold, which rendered the fish cool as well. Warm fish and shells would have improved this one. From the large Plates, a comfort classic: beer and fennel roasted all-natural chicken ($24) with goat cheese polenta, green salad, Dijon mustard and natural jus. It was indeed a large serving: leg, thigh and breast, tender and juicy, the skin lightly crisped. The mix of salad greens was pretty but unremarkable. I found the polenta tucked under the chicken toward the end of the meal when I was too full to eat it. It was packed up with what remained of the chicken. Also packed to take home was most of a side dish of vegetable and potato sofrito ($6), a mix of veggies and potatoes in a zesty sauce dominated by tomatoes. We finished with the warm chocolate chip skillet ($9), a mini-skillet-sized cookie (small pan but large cookie) topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate and caramel sauce. This one was way too sweet for me, but those who like this sort of thing are apt to be very happy with it. While the food was generally good, this seems more like a place to drink and party than one where you go for a meal and substantive conversation. I understand that a certain noise level adds to a places buzz, its energy a tactic that research has shown causes people to eat and drink more and do it more quickly while also giving them the sensation of being at a happening kind of establishment. But when its so loud that people have to shout at one another to converse and that conversation carries from the bar to the dining room so those attempting to eat and talk have to raise their voices as well, we have passed from lively to excessive. The noise did succeed in making my companion and I eat more quickly but only because it began to feel like an endurance test and we wanted to escape. Add to that the fact that wed been seated in the one booth that faces the glass entrance doors through which the sun glared so brightly as it set it all but blinded us. About midway through the meal, we had to shade our eyes to talk to our server. He didnt comment on our discomfort or offer to relocate us, despite the fact there was plenty of room in the dining area. Public House has been open long enough for the staff to know that this happens and to avoid seating anyone there during sunset or they should install some sort of shade on the doors to block the sun. Im all for casual dining, for places that allow us to shake off the pressures of work and life. But perhaps theres a line to be drawn so that one does not feel assaulted while simply trying to eat, drink and be merry without having to shout to be heard.

If the clubhouse is the social and recreational centerpiece of a community then Kalea Bays will surely be one of the busiest places in the gated, luxury residential high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. There are several reasons buyers have decided to purchase at Kalea Bay, said Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. The first is the beautifully designed three-bedroom plus den/threeand-a-half-bath and four-bedroom/four-bath tower residences with Gulf views. The other is our spectacular community clubhouse. Not only will it be a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but it will also be the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. The clubhouse, which is currently under construction, will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/ outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet caf, a gifts and sundries shop, and a state-ofthe-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 Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. 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, stated Lodge. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. Nearby are 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity many of our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Lodge. Rather than putting their guests up in hotels throughout the Naples and Bonita Springs area, they can vacation within the community. Its a real convenience. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. Construction on the clubhouse is slated for completion in the fall and will coincide with the anticipated November completion of the first residential tower, which is nearly 90 percent sold. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to recently release Tower 2 earlier this year, said Lodge. As of early April, the number of residences already reserved in our second tower exceeds the $40 million mark. 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. 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. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. 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 Lodge. 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, Lodge 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 Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Dramatic Gulf 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. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site sales center.

Naples Reserves lifestyle attracts homebuyers of all agesNaples Reserves sought-after location, casually awesome lifestyle and variety of home designs appeal to all from snowbirds and the newly retired, to families and young professionals. Hailing from New Jersey, and most recently from Connecticut, Adam and Allison Recla both in their early 40s had vacationed in Marco Island for years. Last year, the irresistible appeal of Southwest Floridas climate beckoned them to a more permanent arrangement. They moved into their Naples Reserve home just two days before Christmas. We didnt like winter! said Allison. The couples 14-year-old son and two daughters, ages 11 and 8, were up for the move south as well. They looked forward to enjoying family time in their pool year-round. Living near the beach was also priority for us, said Adam. At Naples Reserve, the homes and Island Club have the coastal architecture we love. Combine that with a landscape filled with lakes and palm trees and it feels like living on a tropical resort! After they discovered Naples Reserve, it didnt take long to find their home in the Egret Landing neighborhood. We saw a beautiful, coastal-look, move-in-ready home that fit our family, said Allison. We chose the Ischia by Ashton Woods because we liked its elevation and metal roof, plus its modern finishes and quality. They also liked the homes four bedrooms, and the office was attractive as well since Adam is able to work from home. Its a great respite to enjoy the community, he said. And refreshing to step out into paradise. Sailing and kayaking in Eagle Lake has become a favorite pastime for their kids, and Allison and Adam use the fitness center regularly theyve even taken Tango and Zumba classes. Our family enjoys biking around the community on the wide and beautifully landscaped sidewalk, said Adam. Everyone has been great here its a happy and friendly community, said Allison. Felipe and Cristina Duran, both 37, moved to Naples Reserve last spring after the company Felipe currently works for was expanding its presence. When they started their new home search, Naples Reserve stood out among the other communities in several categories. Naturally, they were attracted to the communitys resort-style amenities. The look and feel of the community really appealed to us, said Cristina. She added the lot sizes and affordable and comprehensive HOA fees were icing on the cake. The Durans found their Naples Reserve home in the neighborhood of Savannah Lakes: the three-bedroom, threeand a half-bath Patmos by Ashton Woods. We really liked the quality of construction, as well as the size of the bedrooms and other living areas compared to the other communities we visited, said Felipe. We chose the Patmos because of its open design and its great lake views. With 2,542 square feet of living space and an expansive lanai, there is plenty of room for the couple to relax with their dogs. They are also looking forward to the dog parks, Paws Awhile and Walk & Wag, with the first one opening later this spring. The Durans find themselves regularly taking advantage of the Island Clubs fitness center and pool. We also enjoy our weekly Fire Pit Fridays! said Cristina. Naples Reserve now offers 17 fully decorated model homes open for viewing, including attached villas, singlefamily and custom estate homes. Homes are priced from the high-$200s to more than $1 million. The community offers 11 neighborhoods and the opportunity for a private boat dock for homebuyers along Eagle Lake. Naples Reserve is located off U.S. 41, 2 miles southeast of the Collier Boulevard/CR 951 intersection and 10 minutes from I-75, Exit 101.

16 GULF COAST HOMES WEEK OF APRIL 6-12, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYBabcock Ranch is all about the great outdoorsJust a few weeks after officially opening to the public, Founders Square at Babcock Ranch is springing to life. From morning exercise classes to brisk business at the lakefront Table & Tap, the daily buzz of activity in this new town being built by Kitson & Partners in Charlotte County gives the worlds first solar powered town a familiar hometown vibe. The surprising melding of modern technology and timeless hometown charm nestled in expansive natural spaces is a defining characteristic of this innovative new town that will ultimately include 19,500 homes, nearly 50,000 residents and 6 million square feet of commercial space. Babcock residents reap all the benefits and efficiencies of the most advanced, modern technologies. Highspeed fiber-optic keeps them as connected with the outside world as they want to be. But when its time to unplug, nature is just outside the door. Babcock Ranchs expansive amenities celebrate and embrace getting out and engaging the land, nature, wildlife, waterways and great public places within it. This includes both active public community spaces, and places for quiet solitude. Residents, businesses and visitors are outfitted with all they need to actively engage the outdoors and nature. I believe people want ways to connect with nature, to leave everything else behind and recharge, said Syd Kitson, Chairman and CEO of Kitson & Partners. Babcock Ranch is all about the great outdoors. Living in a town with half of its total area dedicated to green space, residents can walk out their door and truly immerse themselves in nature without leaving their neighborhood. Kitson traces his passion for nature to his childhood. When I was very young, my parents didnt allow us to stay inside, Kitson said. We went camping, deep into the woods for weeks at a time and I developed a deep love of the land. I appreciate what it means. I think people intuitively understand that you feel better when you are in the woods or on top of a mountain. I really believe you will live longer and have a better life. Kitson has focused on making Babcock Ranch the kind of town people both want to live inand can afford to live in. The design embraces residential neighborhoods, civic, retail and educational structures, and opportunities to enjoy both the grandeur and subtleties of nature on a daily basis as a cohesive, unified experience rather than as separate, disparate parts. With sustainability woven right into the infrastructure, Babcock Ranch leverages economies of scale to deliver green living at competitive prices. Responsible development started with the land. The Babcock Ranch site plan puts 90% of the new town on previously impacted pasture, farm and rock-mined land. If you peel away the master plan at Babcockwhat you see is all the areas cleared for pastures and farmlands underneath the planned development, nestled among the areas that will remain forested. Use of resources available right on the property is another part of the sustainability story. On-site mining operations provide all of the fill and road aggregate. On-site farming will deliver produce and provide space for community farming plots where residents can grow their own. And sod comes from the community sod farm. To conserve water, Babcock Ranchs landscaping guidelines limit turf coverage to 30% of residential lots and require homeowners to use native, low impact trees and shrubs for 75% of their landscaping. All irrigation throughout the community will use reclaimed or grey water from the onsite water and wastewater utility. Expansive green spaces throughout the community beckon neighbors to connect with nature and with each other. In addition to neighborhood trailheads that will serve as gateways to the network of nature trails, every neighborhood at Babcock Ranch incorporates parks with space for children to play, neighbors to gather, and for gardeners to test their skills. Public lakefronts make the sparkling freshwater lakes accessible for kayaking, paddle boarding and fishing. The opportunities for outdoor adventure at Babcock Ranch extend far beyond the town boundaries. The 50 miles of trails within the towns footprint will eventually connect into the neighboring Babcock Ranch Preserve. Created in 2006 as part of a complex transaction facilitated by Kitson, the 73,000 acre preserve is home to a number of listed species including gopher tortoises, redcockaded woodpeckers and large mammals such as Florida panthers and black bears. Comprised of cypress domes, mesic flatwoods and wet prairies that straddle Telegraph Swamp, the states purchase of the historic ranch secured the final link of an environmental corridor that now links Lake Okeechobee to the Charlotte Harbor Estuary. The economic engine that made the preservation possiblean environmentally friendly new town on the portion of the historic ranch that Kitson retainedtook more than a decade to incubate. Now, as the new town prepares to welcome its first residents, Babcock Ranch is raising the bar for responsible, forward-thinking and sustainable development and creating a new model for the future. I believe the approach we are taking to protect the land while sustaining growth can serve as a model for the rest of the state and the nation in the years to come, Kitson said. If demand is thereothers will follow our lead and Babcock Ranch will prove to be a real game-changer.

ALLURE, the new 32-story condominium to be built by JAXI on the Caloosahatchee River in the Historic Downtown Fort Myers River District, is undoubtedly the best value for luxurious waterfront living on Floridas west coast. Since JAXI was able to purchase the land at an extremely significant discount, with much of the early site work for the development already completed, the developers are passing the savings on to buyers, resulting in prices for beautiful new residences that are almost 25% less than other area waterfront condominiums. A recent News-Press article titled Allures price is right for Downtown Fort Myers, compares the high-rise with other new developments on the market noting that prices at Allure are much lower than other high-rise condos that are now under construction. Buyers at ALLURE commented in the article that With prices at Allure starting at $267,000 for a one-bedroom in a deluxe condo complex with amenities, theres nothing that compares for the price. Two-bedrooms, two-and-a-half bath residences with water views are available at about $400,000. With other area condominiums in Bonita Springs, Estero and Naples going for as much as $1.17 million or more for a 3-bedroom residence, ALLUREs pricing for the same size home starts in the low $700s, resulting in a tremendous value for those looking to live the waterfront lifestyle in a tropical urban locale, says ALLURE Sales and Marketing Director Barbara Bengochea-Perez. In addition to the great value and luxurious features and amenities, ALLUREs enviable location puts residents in the middle of all that is delightful about this newly-revitalized, historic, area of Fort Myers. With over 65 cafes, bars and restaurants, the pedestrian and pet-friendly historic downtown offers unlimited options for dining and nightlife to suit any taste, and best of all, its just a short walk or trolley ride away from ALLURE. Arts and culture abound in the River District where the cobblestone-streets are lined with eclectic boutiques and art galleries, historic landmarks and architecture, museums, and even a professional theater. ALLURE boasts an array of resortstyle building amenities: a private screening room with theater-style seating; state-of-the-art gym; pool deck with heated cascading infinity-edge pool overlooking the water; social gathering rooms with fireplace, billiards, game tables; bocce ball and barbecue grills on the rooftop, pickleball by the pool and many other luxury features.
