B1 Golden Apple celebration Five Collier County educators enjoy the fruits of their passion for teaching. A20 Rhetoric and ruckus swirled around the possible incorporation of Estero, a place that had experienced a recent influx of new residents holding their own vision about development of the area, with disagreements about boundaries and which longstanding property holders might care to become a part of the municipality. These issues sound similar to those depicted in recent headlines about the Pelican Landing annexation debate and the call for an Estero incorporation referendum, which goes on the ballot in November after its recent approval by the Florida Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott. But this squabbling actually was part of a debate from 1904 Esteros original date of incorporation by Cyrus Teed and members of his Koreshan Unity settlement, according to the book Early Estero by Quentin Quesnell. The histories of Estero and Bonita Springs both reflect earlier incorporations and dissolutions of those incorporated municipalities with historical boundaries that differed from the territories now up for debate. Mr. Teeds city of Estero encompassed 110 square miles the largest incorporated city in the state at the time, according to Mr. Quesnells book. The city limits ran from nearly whats now Gladiolus Drive south of Fort Myers to around Shangri-La Road in Bonita Springs and included the Estero Island site of the current Town of Fort Myers Beach. The incorporation only lasted until 1907, when the state Legislature dissolved it at the request of Lee County government.

This was not punishment, it was necessity based on sudden catastrophic climate change at 9,000 feet from under-the-warm-night-blankets to out-in-the-frigid-morning-kitchen. The coal shed rose behind the springhouse, next to the woodpile. I used to watch that old woman stand out there in a flower-print dress, axe in hand, splitting wood like Paul Bunyan. But she preferred not to handle coal until she was putting it in the stove. It was a coal and wood stove. Once you got it going with kindling and split wood, a couple of chunks of coal about the size of grapefruits could burn slowly and steadily for hours on end. The coal shed was as big as a couple of outhouses or, for the inexperienced, about the size of Bryant McKinnie, the 6-foot 8-inch Miami Dolphins tackle who weighed in at 352 pounds. You could put a lot of coal in it. Remembering that the other day, I decided to just admit my complicity in the global warming crisis. The fact is, Im addicted to plant prehistory on this green-and-blue planet. Most coal, as you know, dates from about 300 to 360 million years ago, and all of it is just once-upon-a-time plants. I love the stuff. Petroleum products, too, because theyre just so much fun to use. If you cant smoke em, at least you can burn em. But now I have to own up. Hi. My names Roger. Im a coal-aholic. I also have to own up to climate change created by coal and petroleum, a thing Ive never cared a sniff about. Traditionally, I couldnt have cared less whether the day was hot or cold, snowy or sunny, dry or humid, flooding or just fooling around. If it was weather, it was OK with me. But nowadays thats the opinion of a bonehead, not merely a baldhead. I prefer not to be the former. Or the latter, but you make adjustments where you can and quit worrying about the rest. Climate change will be the last major problem we as a species ever face if we cant figure out how to quit pouring carbon dioxide and methane and ignorant opinions into the air. Its not just the fossil fuels we use, though. Its the cows, too. Like coal, cows are also dear to my heart. (Hi. My names Roger. Im a cowa-holic.) Which makes me suspicious of things that start with C, even if I also love them: Coal. Cuba. Colorado. Cows. Cows are known as ruminant livestock, like sheep, buffalo and goats, which means they chew, digest, belch and fart, to put it bluntly. Sort of like Cubans and Coloradoans. Horses fart too, but Horse, like Human, starts with an H, not a C, so obviously theyre innocent. In fact, all that methane gas, released by cows or decaying vegetation, is a lot more damaging by 20 times, scientists say than CO-2 emissions from coal and other fossil fuels. And the bovine count is terrifying. About 1.5 billion cows are now breaking wind on the planet, including 87.7 million in the United States and 1.62 million in Florida, which was once ranked the second biggest cow-producing state behind Texas. Now weve fallen to about 17th place. That leaves Texas still strong at number one, with 10.9 million cows well ahead of number two Nebraskas 6.15 million. In the U.S., about 20 percent of our methane emissions come from those cows. And cows world-wide are said to be responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gasses that cause global warming. They also produce more than 65 percent of the ammonia emitted into the atmosphere, which creates acid rain. Meanwhile, the regional effects of cows are not pretty. Roughly a half-million of them are crapping all over the Kissimmee River basin, which empties into Lake Okeechobee, which empties into the oncefecund water systems that roll out east, west and south of the Lake, stretching through the Everglades and into Florida Bay. But that aint nothin but a hound dog. Theres a dead zone about the size of New Jersey, more than 8,100 square miles, lying in the Gulf of Mexico, so rendered by waste washed down the Mississippi River and into the gulf from farms, ranches and feedlots east of the Continental Divide. Thats a lot more than a hound dog. Like most everything else, though, this is an opportunity. But not to Americans, apparently. Too many of us are still foolishly questioning the hard data pointing to climate change. Or worse, were simply ignoring it. But the Argentinians and the French arent so obtuse. Theyve provided solutions, at least where cows are concerned. The French, of course, think the solution to cows is better food. So instead of feeding their cows a cornand soy-based grain diet, some of them have switched to a mix of alfalfa, linseed and grass, which can cut the methane emissions from those cows by 20 percent, they say. Argentinas National Institute of Agricultural Technology, meanwhile, has a solution that could save the planet: the new fartpack. As you know, Argentinians are mostly impatient gauchos who drink heavily from hip flasks. But when it comes to cows, they know what theyre doing. In this case, according to recent news reports, they jam a couple of tubes into the south end of a cow going north specifically into the rumen, the biggest digestive tract in the animal. Then, they attach a bag to the other end, and strap it to the cow. Apparently, the fartpack can collect 300 liters of methane a day, enough to run either a car or a refrigerator for about 24 hours. Why hasnt the USDA thought of something like that? Maybe we should eat more Argentinian beef. But somebody would have to burn a lot of petroleum to get it here. o b I b roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 15-21, 2014 OPINION amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly richLOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly A hero for the agesJeremiah Denton, the Vietnam War POW who died in March at age 89, utter ed one of the great statements of defiance in American history. In 1965, he was shot down in his A-6 during a bombing run over North Vietnam. He became a captive for more than seven years and endured an unimaginable regime of torture, humiliation and isolation, managing to retain his dignity and spirit even as his captors went to hideous lengths to snuff them out.Soon after his capture, Mr. Denton was taken to Hoa Lo Prison, or the Hanoi Hilton, where he led the resistance to the North Vietnamese efforts to extract propaganda confessions from their prisoners.As Mr. Denton related in his book, When Hell Was in Session, they tried to starve one out of him. He began to hallucinate, but he still refused. They took him to the Meathook Room and beat him. Then, they twisted his arms with ropes and relented just enough to keep him from passing out. They rolled an iron bar on his legs and jumped up and down on it. For hours.Mr. Denton agreed finally to give them a little of what they wanted, and he hadnt recovered from this ordeal when the Vietnamese told him he would appear at a press conference.Mr. Denton told a fellow POW that his plan was to blow it wide open. He famously blinked T-O-R-T-U-R-E in Morse code during the interview, a message picked up by naval intelligence and the first definitive word of what prisoners were being subjected to. When asked what he thought of his governments war, Mr. Denton replied, Whatever the position of my government is, I believe in it, yes sir. Im a member of that government, and its my job to support it, and I will as long as I live. The legend is that under the pressure of the Inquisition, Galileo said of the Earth, Yet, it moves. That Martin Luther said, Here I stand, I can do no other. Mr. Dentons words arent an embellishment. They were seen by millions when they were broadcast in the United States, and he almost immediately paid for them in torment so horrifying that he desperately prayed that he wouldnt go insane. When the American involvement in the war ended and the POWs finally were released, Mr. Denton made a brief statement on the tarmac upon his return, no less powerful for its simplicity and understatement: We are honored to have had the opportunity to serve our country under difficult circumstances. We are profoundly grateful to our commander in chief and to our nation for this day. God bless America. A Roman Catholic, Mr. Denton told his family that he had forgiven his captors and, after recounting to them what he had gone through, that he didnt want to speak to them of it again. His son James says he often heard him say with typical modesty Thats over. I dont want to be a professional jailbird. He certainly wasnt that. Mr. Denton went on to become a U.S. senator from Alabama. With his passing, weve lost a hero whose example of faithfulness and duty should be for the ages. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Solitary confinement is not the answerThere has been much attention, and rightly so, on the CIAs extensive use of torture, which the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is said to have documented in its still-classified 6,000page report. The use of torture is not limited to the CIA, however. It is all too common across the United States. Solitary confinement is torture, and it is used routinely in jails, prisons and immigration detention facilities here at home. Grass-roots movements that have been pressuring for change are beginning to yield significant results. The coalitions include prisoners, their families, a broad swath of legal and socialjustice groups and, increasingly, prison guards and officials themselves. One official who worked to reduce the use of solitary confinement was Tom Clements. The executive director of Colorados Department of Corrections, Mr. Clements was at home on March 19, 2013, when his doorbell rang. As he opened the door, he was gunned down, murdered by Evan Ebel, who had been released from solitary confinement directly to the street less than two months earlier. The small, nonprofit Colorado Independent was the only outlet to link the murder to the psychological damage that Mr. Ebel suffered in solitary confinement. Another ex-prisoner who corresponded with Mr. Ebel disclosed text messages with him, shortly before Mr. Ebel killed Clements. One text read, im just feeling peculiar & the only way i know i know to remedy that is via use of violence. Ironically, Mr. Clements was trying, successfully, to reform Colorados solitary-confinement policies, referred to there as administrative segregation. A year before his murder, Mr. Clements told The Colorado Independents Susan Greene, Theres a lot of research around solitary and isolation in recent years, some tied to POWs and some to corrections ... long periods of isolation can be counter-productive to stable behavior and long-term rehabilitation goals. He was concerned with the direct release of prisoners from solitary back into the community, a practice that likely contributed to his murder. His successor, Rick Raemisch, continues to pursue the reforms started by Tom Clements. Mr. Raemisch subjected himself to over 20 hours in solitary, and emerged even more committed to changing the system. Juan Mendez, the United Nations special rapporteur on torture, issued a special report on solitary confinement in 2011, concluding Segregation, isolation, separation, cellular, lockdown, Supermax, the hole, Secure Housing Unit (SHU) ... whatever the name, solitary confinement should be banned by states as a punishment or extortion technique. His latest full report on global torture includes several noted alleged excesses by the United States, including abusive solitary confinement practiced from Afghanistan to Guantanamo Bay to New York state, Louisiana and California. In California, prisoners went on hunger strike for months last year, protesting solitary confinement, gaining widespread public support and achieving some of their demands. In Louisiana, Albert Woodfox has been in solitary confinement for more than 42 years, found guilty of murdering a prison guard, despite the lack of any physical evidence linking him to the crime and eyewitnesses placing him elsewhere at the time. Courts have ordered his release three times, the most recent of which was appealed by the state of Louisiana. A federal appeals court is expected to decide on his case soon. Studies have found that irreversible psychological damage can occur after just 15 days in solitary confinement. The UNs Mr. Mendez alleges that New York states prison system is excessively harsh in its use of solitary. The New York Campaign for Alternatives to Isolated Confinement is pushing a bill, the Humane Alternatives to Long-Term (HALT) Solitary Confinement Act. The bill would limit such confinement to 15 days, and create special treatment facilities for prisoners suffering from mental illness, and grant more time outside the cell, including contact with others. Even prison guards are weighing in against solitary. In Texas, Lance Lowry, president of AFSCME Local 3807 of the Texas Correctional Employees, wrote an open letter to Texas prison officials that called on them to reduce the use of solitary confinement, including on the states death row. He told me on the Democracy Now! news hour, What we found is the overall use of solitary confinement in Texas was not serving its intended purposes. We went from a couple hundred lock-up cells to over 8,000 at one point. Recidivism, violence and the overall financial costs of incarceration are all increased by the use of solitary confinement. Most importantly, its torture. Its time to put an end to solitary confinement. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

Holocaust museum presents The Ghost Army documentary SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida presents a screening of the PBS documentary The Ghost Army at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, May 18. Gazo Nemeth, a World War veteran who was a Ghost Army radio operator, will be in attendance and will participate in a question-and-answer session after the film. Mr. Nemeth now resides in Southwest Florida. Armed with truckloads of inflatable tanks, a world-class collection of sound effects records and more than a few tricks up their sleeves, the Ghost Army was a handpicked group of G.I.s known officially as the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops. They landed in France in 1944 on a mission to deceive the Germans about U.S. troop strength and location at strategically important sites in France, Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium. Composed of artists and sound technicians, the unit tailored its creations to the mission at hand. They impersonated other units and built and deployed decoy planes, convoys, gun emplacements and even a fake headquarters. They set up realistic radio operations, even mimicking a unit radio operators style, which could be as distinctive as a signature. Their decoys were often left visible to fool enemy reconnaissance flights. Little was known about this top-secret unit until decades after the war. Their creativity saved thousands of lives. Their realistic impersonations of varied and vastly larger U.S. Army units misled the Germans into making serious strategic mistakes, and bought time for the U.S. Army until the real men and materials were ready to participate. The unit took part in more than 20 operations from 194445. If Japan had not surrendered, the unit would have played a part in the invasion of Japan as well. Many members of the Ghost Army went on to memorable careers in a number of fields, among them artist and sculptor Ellsworth Kelly and designer Bill Blass.Artists of DeceptionThe Ghost Army is also the subject of an exhibit titled Artists of Deception on display this month at The Holocaust Museum & Education Center. The exhibit brings to life the astonishing exploits of the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops through artifacts, rare photographs and in-depth look at the units history. Examples of the wartime artwork created by Ghost Army soldiers are also included, highlighting just how talented these artists, illustrators and architects were at capturing their experiences and those of the civilians they encountered. Rick Beyer, producer of The Ghost Army PBS documentary, cocurated the exhibit with the daughter of one of the Ghost Army artists. A book created to accompany the exhibit and DVDs of the documentary are available for purchase at the museum. The Holocaust Museum & Education Center is at 4760 Tamiami Trail N. in Naples. Admission is free for members, $10 for adults and $5 for students. The May 18 screening of The Ghost Army is included in the cost of admission. Reservations are requested, as space is limited. Call 263-9200 or email Danielle@holocaustmuseumswfl.org to reserve a seat. Regular museum hours are 12:30-5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday (guided tours offered at 1 and 2:30 p.m.) and 1-4 p.m. Saturday-Sunday (guided tours at 1:30 p.m.).

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 15-21, 2014 Public and private initiatives and partnerships are reshaping the gateway into Old Naples with a new focus on the Gordon River, a waterway you wont see unless you get out of your car and walk to it. And thats precisely the intent of the Gordon River Greenway, which will bring nature to residents and visitors by providing dedicated trails for exploring the mangrove-fringed riverfront behind The Naples Zoo and Conservancy of Southwest Florida and an eventual connection to the new Baker Park. Its absolutely perfect, says Ellie Krier, executive director of the Southwest Florida Land Preservation Trust, founded back in 1988 to create and oversee development of the greenway. The river and greenway, sandwiched between Goodlette-Frank and AirportPulling roads and the hubbub of traffic, strip shopping centers, industrial and office parks and the airport, provide an unspoiled natural setting in urban Naples. The 12-foot-wide paved greenway on the rivers east side will dart in and out of red and white mangroves, reveal a rookery for yellowand blackcrowned night herons, access elevated boardwalks over wetlands and traipse through pine flatwoods, scrubland and native habitats. Bridges will provide access to the the zoo and conservancy. People are always surprised when they take our electric boat rides and theres an Amazon-like experience in the middle of the city, says Rob Moher, president and CEO of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, which recently completed a $20 million expansion, including connections to the greenway and a nature-immersion walkway to its nature center. They see everything from manatees, tarpon and tri-colored herons, he adds about the sights along the short boat rides. The opening of the greenway is really going to open peoples eyes that we have this nature district right in the heart of Naples. Its like an emerald necklace around Naples. More than 25 years in the making and slated to be dedicated as early as September, the Gordon River Greenway will link to an existing pedestrian loop near the Naples Municipal Airport and eventually connect to Baker Park once the city builds the 15-acre site and a river-spanning bridge, conceivably within two or three years, according to Mayor John Sorey III. Visitors will access the greenway and its 180 acres of conservation lands from new parking lots on Golden Gate Parkway and south of the zoo as well as from multiple entry points along its route. On the southern end, the greenway will provide a natural amenity for residents of three new residential offerings: the 53 single-family home Mangrove Bay along the river; the mixed-use Naples Square on the site of the failed Renaissance Village and Grand Central Station developments; and the recently announced and tentatively named 1075 Central Avenue with 220 apartments on the former site of the Naples Daily News. The residential projects have been designed by Naples architect Matthew Kragh, who also provided some $250,000 in pro bono services in designing Baker Park. A blend of Old Florida, British West Indies and Bahamian-inspired architecture in a white and pale palette will create a streetscape reminiscent of Old Naples and the storied Seaside in Floridas panhandle. The greenway, park and Mangrove Bay are anomalies in the typical build-itand-they-will-come scenarios of recent years: communities built in small-acreage infill areas along newly minted roads. Instead, the projects became possible with the sale of land owned by two of Naples pioneering families, the Fleischmanns and the Pullings of Fleischmann Park and Airport-Pulling Road fame. Prime for preservationThe greenway was conceived in 1987 but didnt gain momentum until 2006, when the land trust had the opportunity to buy 140 acres from the Fleischmann family. Ms. Krier recalls when then-Mayor Edwin J. Putzell Jr. brought the American Institute of Architects Regional Urban Design Assistance Team to town. He said, We have this gorgeous river no one can see. We cant let anything happen to mess it up, she says. We had a plan, she adds, but we had to wait to buy the bulk of the land. Collier County residents approved a referendum to tax themselves to acquire the property around the zoo. That plan was a grand one, linking residents and visitors to an untapped natural oasis that ultimately will culminate just blocks from Fifth Avenue South and tie into the existing Naples dog park on Riverside Circle. The first phase of the greenway, where the river stretches just 20 feet wide, will also include a kayak/canoe launch. Families will be able to spend a day on the river, visit the Conservancy and the Zoo, says Ms. Krier. People can boat or paddle to the city park, which will have transient boat slips, have an ice cream cone and go back out on the water. The greenway and park, she notes, have become a prime marketing feature for Mangrove Bay and Naples Square. And shes OK with that. Anything we can do to get people to walk instead of drive is great.The birth of redevelopmentWalkability, access to the park and greenway and the prime opportunity to live on the Gordon River with a dedicated boat slip and blocks-fromFifth Avenue South location created a unique opportunity for Mangrove Bay, where homes are priced from $2.1 million. Most of the oneand two-story cottage-style homes will overlook the river and estuary with quick access through Naples Bay and Gordon Pass to the Gulf of Mexico. The Kragh-designed Old Florida-style homes harken back to Naples past in an area where many of the citys first settlers lived. The Gordon River, named by fisherman Roger Gordon, was once a working waterfront. Theres also another hidden secret nearby: a pedestrian walkway underneath the Gordon River Bridge at Fifth Avenue South. Mangrove Bay became a reality in April 2013 when the Pulling family sold a 15-acre portion of its mangrove-fringed riverfront property with docks and boat slips already in place and wrapping around much of the waterfront. Since sales started in late February, five of the planned 53 homes have sold for an average $3 million, according to developer Jon Rubinton. Mr. Kraghs architectural style resonates with buyers as it did with Mr. Rubinton. The developer drove through Old Naples and pinpointed the houses he liked, says Mr. Kragh, the principal of MHK Architecture & Planning, who honed his style of Old Florida with an architectural twist while renovating historic cottages in Old Naples. He wanted to re-create that look in a larger development. This is a unique and amazing project that reflects Old Naples. Each of Mr. Kraghs six floor plans emphasizes outdoor living and the views; swimming pools and three different elevations are available with each plan. The threeand four-bedroom waterfront and courtyard homes offer 2,600 to 3,600 square feet under air; private-entry guesthouses are included in courtyard designs and optional in waterfront homes. The guest quarters are above two-car garages located in the back, a design feature that enhances the street view. Ground-floor master suites, living rooms and great rooms open up to outdoor living areas, where theyre going to have a fireplace and a bigscreen TV. Some of the outdoor living areas are larger than the homes. The reason people like these homes is not only because of their charm, but theyre all designed around the lifestyle seasonal residents enjoy those four fabulous months theyre here, Mr. Kragh says. Mangrove Bay brings the masterplanned country-club community concept to the shores of the Gordon River, substituting the requisite golf course for a boat-in-the-backyard lifestyle, complete with a concierge center for kayak, canoe and water-ski storage; a secondfloor clubroom and three deluxe guest suites on the third floor, including one with a living/dining room, full kitchen and balcony. Pool, lawn and landscape maintenance will be provided by the homeowners association, and an onsite concierge will be able to arrange everything from boat cleaning and fueling to stocking the refrigerator and finding a fishing captain, Mr. Rubinton says. The docks provide covered and openair slips, with options for boatlifts, and can accommodate boats up to 40 feet. The community will also offer a boat launch and connect with Baker Park to the north.NEW OLDFrom page 1 N E S W 05001,000 2,000SCALE IN FEETC:\Users\steven.haas\appdata\local\temp\AcPublish_3744\Gordon River Greenway-AER2014.dwg REVISION: CREATED: DRAWN BY: JOB NO.: TAB NAME: SCALE: SHEET: DESIGNED: T.T.T.

Although the exteriors look like the wood used in classic cottages, the developers have chosen durable concrete lap siding and PVC for decorative elements and replaced traditional tin roofs with an aluminum derivative. As part of the design and customization process, homebuyers also get complimentary landscape architecture consultations and interior design services, the latter with Freestyles Faith Fix, who is designing three furnished models. Those models and the first five private residences could be completed as soon as the summer of 2015, Mr. Rubinton says. We could have chosen a higher density, but we down-zoned the property to preserve the integrity of the site, he says. Buyers get an Old Naples location and a unique lifestyle, a blend of the wonderful ambience of Old Naples and nature. Rebirth of a developmentThat high-density development will occur on the west side of GoodletteFrank, where Naples Square will offer 300 homes and 150,000 square feet of commercial space on 19 acres a mixed-use concept akin to its proposed predecessors, Renaissance Village and Grand Central Station. The Ronto Group has revived the residential project, in limbo for more than a decade, and is offering twoand three-bedroom condos with 1,200 to 3,000 square feet with prices starting at $500,000. The buildings will boast a mlange of Bermuda, British West Indies and coastal contemporary influenced architecture with landscaped streets, fountains and resident-only amenity courtyards, much like nearby Bayfront. In designing the threeand four-story buildings for 220 workforce apartments at the old newspaper site, Mr. Kragh adopted more of a Florida eclectic look, one that combines the architectural inspiration of Mangrove Bay and Naples Square with a cleaner, slightly more contemporary feel. The project will offer oneto three-bedroom rentals with 800 to 1,300 square feet. Mayor Sorey expects the Naples Square location just 1.5 blocks from the new park and anticipated rental fees to appeal to teachers, firefighters and police officers. A park is bornOn a parcel formerly owned by the Pulling family adjacent to the citys public works facility, Baker Park is the final piece in the redevelopment of the new Old Naples and one the mayor hopes Naples City Council will fast track. Hes encouraging council to hire an engineering firm before its June 11 summer recess. Under that scenario, the firm will have the summer to complete studies and nail down costs to build the park and the greenway connector bridge before council returns to session in late August. Im trying to keep council a little bit patient, he says. They all want to know the cost of the park, but we need engineering experts to help us understand the scope of work. Right now, its estimated at $15 million. We inherited the bridge. We thought the greenway folks were going to build it. That could cost $1 million to $1.5 million more, Mayor Sorey says. The park is a public-private initiative much like the neighboring dog park. The Prelude to a Park gala in March raised $5 million, including $2 million donated by philanthropists Jay and Patty Baker, who in turn earned naming rights. The city paid $3 million for the property and has $2.5 million set aside. The mayors goal is to raise 50 percent of the project cost before beginning construction, which ambitiously could be as soon as fall 2015. Planning for the park included a series of 25 public meetings. Passive amenities worked into the master plan include a riverfront carousel, multiple water features, a childrens splash area, picnic areas, a kayak and paddleboard dock, boat slips and riverfront sitting areas. The merry-go-round was funded through private donations; additional park offerings, such as a proposed but yet unfunded rock-climbing wall, will be determined by community contributions. Baker Park will also offer a caf, and the old sanitation building will provide public restrooms for those using the park, the dog park and the greenway. Structures including pavilions, picnic shelters and a tiki hut were designed by Mr. Kragh with a nautical tribute to Old Naples. With wide paths to accommodate wheelchairs, baby carriages, pedestrians, cyclists and skateboards, Baker Park and the Gordon River Greenway will provide a safe environment for outdoor pursuits far removed from major traffic corridors. The great thing to me is people can enjoy a 3.5-mile round-trip bike ride without worrying about cars, Mayor Sorey says. The greenway is an incredible amenity. The city will connect the greenway to existing bike paths crisscrossing the city to the beach, Cambier Park and Tin City without anyone ever having to cross a major city road, he adds. A provision in the citys approval of Mangrove Bay also required an 8-footwide sidewalk along Riverside Circle that accesses that little-known pathway under the bridge. The connection of nature and the reinterpretation of Old Naples and the river that runs through it is bound to spawn additional redevelopment in the Downtown District. Were creating an exciting and unified architectural theme within two blocks, Mr. Kragh says. This will be the gateway to the city.

Reservations are required and can be made by calling 775-7661. Lunch is included. The Blue Zones Project is a community well-being improvement initiative designed to make healthy choices easier through permanent changes to environment, policy and social networks. Its mission is to lead and ignite change, community-by-community, so that people live better, longer lives. Progress is tracked by the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, a measure of U.S. residents daily health and well-being. The Blue Zones Project was initiated in 2004 when author Dan Beuttner teamed up with researchers at National Geographic to find where people worldwide live the healthiest and longest lives. Researchers realized that environmental factors play a large role in life expectancy, and found the following five geographic areas where people live the longest: Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia, Italy; Nicoya, Costa Rica; Ikaria, Greece; and Loma Linda, Calif. Dr. Weiss will discuss the effort to have Collier County certified as a Blue Zone, which could bring payoffs in reduced health-care costs to individuals and business.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 WEEK OF MAY 15-21, 2014 Oooooo! Aaaaahhh! Eh? The Canadian Radio-television & Telecommunications Commission in March reprimanded three pornography broadcast stations not for excessively erotic fare, but for violating Canadas protectionist, patriotic rules requiring that at least 35 percent of all content be of Canadian origin. According to its notice, the 24-hour AOV Adult Movie Channel, XXX Action Clips and Maleflixxx were falling short of the 8 hours a day of north-of-the-border sex action (and, in an additional charge, were failing to provide enough closed captioning to accompany the Yeahs and Oh, babys). Drunk logic Wendy Simpson, 25, explaining her DUI arrest during a March incident in Huddersfield, England, pointed out that she had just minutes earlier walked to a McDonalds for a late-night meal because she knew she was too inebriated to drive. However, the dining room was closed, and she was refused service at the drive-thru window because she was on foot, and, she said, the only option left for her was to go home, get her car and return to the drive-thru. On the way back, she was arrested. Efren Carrillo, a member of the board of supervisors of Californias Sonoma County, was charged with misdemeanor peeking last year in Santa Rosa after he, returning home from a club late at night, saw his female neighbors light on and decided to drop in on her (though he did not even know her name). He had knocked at her back patio door, carrying beers, but was dressed awkwardly, leading the woman to call 911. In retrospect, the county supervisor told police afterward, I should have had my pants on (instead of just his socks and underwear). (His trial was underway at press time.) Among the arguments offered in March by Darrious Mathis lawyers for his jury trial in Cobb County, Ga., (for assault, kidnapping and carjacking) was the assertion that Mr. Mathis needed no force in order to have sex with the female victim on the night in question because Mr. Mathis is such a goodlooking man. (However, the jury was not so dazzled and convicted him on all charges.) Ironies Englands Stockport magistrates court levied the equivalent of a $13,000 fine in March against Lorraine White, 41, who runs a part-time service as a dominatrix (chaining up and whipping bad men) in a sex dungeon. Her business is apparently perfectly legal; the citation was for violating fire codes because inspectors could not see how a client, being properly disciplined (handcuffed and chained), might escape the dungeon in the event of fire. The Food and Drug Administration has had run-ins with homeopathic products that subtly market themselves as health remedies without ever having sought the required FDA approval. However, in March, a different problem arose, requiring the agency to order a recall of 56 different batches of homeopathic remedies made by the Ferndale, Washington, company Terra-Medica because they may have (accidentally) been genuine medicine. A variety of the firms capsules, tablets and suppositories, said the FDA, might have contained actual penicillin, inadvertently produced as a by-product of fermentation. Tiffany Austin called a KTVU reporter in March after being dismissed as a member of the Planet Fitness gym in Richmond, Calif., after only one 15-minute workout because she was too fit and therefore making other members uncomfortable. Planet Fitness apparently takes seriously its business slogan guaranteeing no gymtimidation, designed to keep out-of-shape women from feeling bad about themselves. Said another member, to the reporter, Its unfair to show off your body. The litigious society A columnist for the Egyptian newspaper Al-Yawm Al-Sabi proposed in March that Egypt sue Israel in international court for reparations for the 10 Biblical plagues cast from Hebrew curses, including boils, lice, locusts and turning the Nile River into blood. Ahmad al-Gamal asserted that Israelites swiped gold, silver and other precious items as they began their legendary desert wandering. Mr. Al-Gamal also wants reparations from Turkey (for the 16th-century Ottoman invasion), France (for Napoleons invasion in 1798), and Britain (for 72 years of occupation). A California model, Elizabeth Dickson, filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles in March against Playboy Enterprises for an injury she suffered as a guest on a Playboy Channel cable TV show in 2012 when she allowed host Kevin Klein to tee a golf ball off of her rear end. According to the $500,000 lawsuit, Mr. Klein took a swing at the ball that was teed between her cheeks, missed, and struck her buttocks hard, causing her pain, suffering, worrying and anxiety. Rehabilitated Cook County, Ill., judge Cynthia Brim is awaiting the Illinois Courts Commissions decision as she seeks to be reinstated following her suspension in 2012 for mental health issues. Ms. Brim has been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, has been hospitalized multiple times since 1993 (according to a Chicago Sun-Times report), and now claims to be fine, provided she takes her meds on schedule which her doctor said she will need to do for the rest of her life. Her suspension came after a manic courtroom outburst lauding her heroic testicles and that preceded a scuffle with sheriffs deputies outside a county judicial building.

Summer travel off to a hot startEighty-one percent of Florida residents responding to an online survey plan to kick start the summer travel season off by taking at least one leisure trip of 50 miles or more requiring overnight accommodations during the next three months. This reflects a 4 percent increase from 2013, according to a recent AAA Consumer Pulse survey on summer travel plans. This marks the third consecutive year that AAA data shows a steady summer travel season in Florida, says AAA Travel spokeswoman Jessica Brady. Although theme parks, beach getaways and city destinations top 2014s summer travel list, the majority of survey respondents had not finalized their vacation plans, she adds. Just as travel demand is expected to increase this summer, the cost to vacation could also rise if you do not have a plan, Ms. Brady cautions. Travelers who wait until the last minute to book their hotel, rental car or airline ticket can expect to pay more than if they book weeks in advance. The majority of travelers (59 percent) plan to spend $1,500 or less on travel in the next three months. More than half (62 percent) will pay for a hotel during a summer vacation, while 36 percent will cut costs by staying with family and friends. Although only 35 percent plan to rent a car this summer, nearly three in five travelers (57 percent) plan to drive at least five hours to get to their destination or for sightseeing. Floridians are fortunate because most destinations like beaches and theme parks are within a one-day drive, says Mark Jenkins of AAA-The Auto Club Group. Gasoline prices are beginning to let up just in time for the busy summer driving season. Pump prices are not expected to have a negative impact on travel plans.

Womens Fund launches campaign for awareness of child sex trafficking The Womens Fund of Southwest Florida is launching a public awareness campaign aimed at educating the community on the prevalence of child sex trafficking in Southwest Florida. PSAs will begin airing this weekend on Waterman Broadcasting stations NBC-2, ABC-7, MeTV and NewsNow. The public is encouraged to share the messages via social media, email and word of mouth to help raise awareness. The PSAs can be accessed online under news & blog at www.stopsextraffickingswfl.org, a new website established by The Womens Fund. The National Human Trafficking Resource Center reports that one in three runaways is exploited for sex trafficking or pornography. The centers data indicates that 84 percent of human trafficking inquiries from Southwest Florida concern women and children, and 66 of those inquiries concern sex trafficking. Theres a myth that human trafficking happens in faraway places, but the truth is, its happening right here in our own backyard and our children are the most vulnerable victims, says Brenda Tate, president of The Womens Fund of Southwest Florida. If you suspect human trafficking or are a victim, call (888) 373-7888 for information or help or text INFO or HELP to BeFree (233722). The Womens Fund of Southwest Florida recently invested $150,000 to establish the Southwest Florida Regional Center on Human Trafficking on the campus of Florida Gulf Coast University. The center supports the multi-agency Human Trafficking Task Force that covers Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Hendry, Glades and DeSoto counties. The center is developing a regional protocol that includes the enhancement of victim support provided by law enforcement and victim service agencies. The center will also develop and implement a data collection method that facilitates the coordination of services and forensic investigations on human trafficking cases. In addition to the public awareness campaign, The Womens Fund invites the community to its first-ever SMART Party from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 19, at the Performing Arts Center in Bonita Springs.

Florida Focused.1 Money Market APY Springs Historical Society, said the boundaries ran somewhat close to the current downtown old Bonita, although a little more to the east. If you want to know the reason they built there, just look at the flood maps, Mr. Strader said. The (Tamiami) Trail coming through shifted it. In the middle of the current debate about the boundary separating Bonita Springs and Estero lies a forgotten third settlement a village called Coconut, the land of which is being absorbed by the two larger neighbors. The remnants of this forgotten village are located where the western end of Coconut Road meets Estero Bay, an area now graced by the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa. Marlene Fernandez, archivist and preservationist for the Estero Historical Society, said Coconut had been a commercial fishing village and the area included Weeks Fish Camp and the Smoot Fish House. She said part of the Hyatt complex now occupies the land where the fish house once stood. Families who were associated with the fishing village, besides the Weeks and Smoots, included the Johnsons and Fernandezes. Ms. Fernandez said some descendants still live in the area, including those in her own family and that of Tom Smoot, an attorney in Fort Myers. The Johnson Cemetery on Spring Creek Road off of Coconut Road was originally called Coconut Cemetery, Ms. Fernandez said. The residents of the fishing village shared ties with the two communities on either side. I once asked the old timers there where they went when they needed supplies, such as flour or salt, if they went to Bonita or Fort Myers, Mr. Strader said. They said they traded at the Koreshan store because it could be reached by boat. Ms. Fernandez concurred, but she said that the building of the Tamiami Trail in 1927 opened additional opportunities and made it much easier to visit Bonita Springs, Estero and Fort Myers because these places were made accessible by automobile. She said the road might have even helped the village by allowing people to come out to Coconut to fish. Old man Hub Johnson had little skiffs he rented to the winter visitors and supplemented his Social Security that way, she said. Why did the village go into decline? Ms. Fernandez offered several reasons, most having to do with a downturn in fishing and the deaths of the older generation. When the owner of the fish house died, his boys didnt want to take it up, she said. Fishing was a hard life and a meager living, and people want more than that these days. The Weeks moved away when the Hyatt came in. Today, little is left of the village of Coconut. The fish camp has a few homes and trailers, and the Hickory Bait & Tackle Shop closed permanently April 30 to make way for a larger canal and a new restaurant. Age has a way of getting rid of things, Ms. Fernandez said. People die, and others dont want to take it up.

Bay Dr. www.RiverchaseDermatology.com Pediatric and Adult Dermatology Cosmetic RejuvenationWelcome...Jennifer Rice, PA-CBoard Certi ed Physician Assistant A new method for using immunotherapy to specifically attack tumor cells that have mutations unique to a patients cancer has been developed by scientists at the National Cancer Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health. The researchers demonstrated that the human immune system can mount a response against mutant proteins expressed by cancers that arise in epithelial cells which can line the internal and external surfaces (such as the skin) of the body. These cells give rise to many types of common cancers, such as those that develop in the digestive tract, lung, pancreas, bladder and other areas of the body. The research provides evidence that this immune response can be harnessed for therapeutic benefit in patients, according to the scientists. The study appeared May 9, in the journal Science. Our study deals with the central problem in human cancer immunotherapy, which is how to effectively attack common epithelial cancers, said Steven A. Rosenberg, M.D., chief of the Surgery Branch in NCIs Center for Cancer Research. The method we have developed provides a blueprint for using immunotherapy to specifically attack sporadic or driver mutations, unique to a patients individual cancer. All malignant tumors harbor genetic alterations, some of which may lead to the production of mutant proteins that are capable of triggering an antitumor immune response. Research led by Dr. Rosenberg and his colleagues had shown that human melanoma tumors often contain mutation-reactive immune cells called tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes, or TILs. The presence of these cells may help explain the effectiveness of adoptive cell therapy (ACT) and other forms of immunotherapy in the treatment of melanoma. In ACT, a patients own TILs are collected, and those with the best antitumor activity are grown in the laboratory to produce large populations that are infused into the patient. However, prior to this work it had not been clear whether the human immune system could mount an effective response against mutant proteins produced by epithelial cell cancers. These cells comprise more than 80 percent of all cancers. It was also not known whether such a response could be used to develop personalized immunotherapies for these cancers. In this study, Dr. Rosenberg and his team set out to determine whether TILs from patients with metastatic gastrointestinal cancers could recognize patientspecific mutations. They analyzed TILs from a patient with bile duct cancer that had metastasized to the lung and liver and had not been responsive to standard chemotherapy. The patient, a 43-year-old woman, was enrolled in an NIH trial. Following transfer of the TILs, the patients metastatic lung and liver tumors stabilized. When the patients disease eventually progressed, after about 13 months, she was re-treated with ACT in which 95 percent of the transferred cells were mutation-reactive T cells, and she experienced tumor regression that was ongoing as of the last follow up (six months after the second T-cell infusion). These results provide evidence that a T-cell response against a mutant protein can be harnessed to mediate regression of a metastatic epithelial cell cancer. Given that a major hurdle for the success of immunotherapies for gastrointestinal and other cancers is the apparent low frequency of tumor-reactive T cells, the strategies reported here could be used to generate a T-cell adoptive cell therapy for patients with common cancers, said Dr. Rosenberg.

NCH earns highest marks in two independent ratingsTwo watchwords can make the difference between life and death for our patients: quality and safety. And Im pleased to say were doing our part to make sure that these two core critical values are top-of-mind at NCH. Leapfrog Group, an independent industry watchdog that rates hospitals on how well they protect patients from accidents, errors, injuries and infections, recently named NCH the only health-care system in Southwest Florida to receive an A rating for safety and quality. Chief Medical Officer Doug Ardoin, M.D., called the recognition a tribute to the work of everyone on our team and to our constant measuring and working to improve quality and patient safety at NCH. NCH was also recognized recently with the highest rating (three stars) by the Society of Thoracic Surgery for open-heart bypass surgery and aortic valve replacement a rating that places us among the top 10 percent in the nation. Drs. Robert Pascotto Jr. and Dennis Stapleton lead a team of outstanding nurses, surgical technicians and support staff from the NCH Heart Institute and the NCH Healthcare System in caring for patients with competence and compassion. They greatly deserve this distinction. The Society of Thoracic Surgery has taken the lead in public reporting by providing clinical data on heart surgery outcomes in a format thats easy for the public to understand. STS Public Reporting Online enables the societys national database participants to voluntarily report to each other and the public their heart surgery composite star ratings and the component ratings from which those are derived. Reporting outc omes based on medical data is more accurate and more useful than reporting outcomes based on administrative data, which lacks critical clinical information about patients. Health care is becoming both more transparent and metric, and we embrace this new openness at NCH. Quality and safety can be measured and compared, so that patients, families, insurance companies and anyone else interested in health care can make betterinformed choices. Here at NCH, we are proud of our team and accomplishments and encourage people to compare our performance with that of our competitors. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickLast month, the folks at Banfield Pet Hospital, who care for more than 2.7 million pets nationwide, including 470,000 cats, released their 2014 State of Pet Health report. It included a startling statistic: a 48 percent increase in the prevalence of feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) infection in cats seen at Banfields more than 850 hospitals. Does it mean your cat is at risk? Not necessarily. A lot depends on his lifestyle. Cats can get FIV through contact with saliva from an infected cat. Cats with the disease typically acquire it through bite wounds when they get in fights with FIVinfected cats. Thats a really good reason to keep your cat indoors. We dont know whats behind the increased incidence in FIV infection. Its not explained by changes in the rates of testing or of vaccination. What is known from the report is that male cats are three times as likely to be infected with FIV as female cats, and that adult, unneutered cats were 3.5 times more likely to be infected with FIV as adult cats who were spayed or neutered. That makes sense, because unneutered tomcats are the ones who are going to be out there fighting and biting. Interestingly, a recent study found no evidence that FIV-positive cats living peacefully with disease-free cats passed on the disease. In the same study, FIV-positive mothers did not pass on the disease to their kittens. So while the possibility of transmission is there, simple exposure to an infected cat may not be as risky as previously thought as long as the cats are friendly toward each other. There are a couple of important things to know about FIV. First, while FIV is contagious among cats, its not transmissible to humans. Second, its not a death sentence. Its not curable, but with good care, cats with FIV infections can live long, healthy lives. FIV affects the immune system, so cats with the disease can be more prone to respiratory, dental, eye or skin infections. Cats with FIV may develop a fever or seem tired all the time. Chronic diarrhea and weight loss are also associated with FIV. Some cats dont show any signs, although they are still infectious. Protect an FIV-infected cat from injuries or wounds that could cause secondary bacterial infections as well as from other viruses and parasites that could cause illness. Depending on your cats lifestyle, environment and clinical signs, your veterinarian may recommend other measures as well to manage the disease. The most important safety measure you can take is to keep your cat indoors both to prevent exposure to potential injuries and infections and to make sure he doesnt spread the disease to other cats. A vaccination is available for FIV, but it is not among the core vaccines recommended by the American Association of Feline Practitioners. Thats because it doesnt protect against all the strains of FIV and because the FIV test cannot distinguish between the actual disease and the antibodies produced by vaccination. That can make test results unclear if a cats vaccination history is unknown. The AAFP recommends the vaccine only for cats who are at high risk of infection in other words, cats who go outdoors. Those cats should have a microchip indicating that theyve had the vaccination to prevent any confusion about their infection status. Your veterinarian may suggest testing your cat for FIV if she has a fever, frequent infections or other signs of illness. A simple and accurate blood test gives rapid results. Kittens born to FIV-infected mothers may test positive while they are young, but negative after they are 6 months old, so it can be a good idea to retest them after that age. Roaming outdoors puts cats, especially males, at higher risk for e xposure to FIV. Pets of the Week>>Bella-Mae is a spayed, 3-yearold schnauzer/ cairn terrier mix who weighs about 10 pounds.

FREE In-Home EstimatesCuttingedgegranite.com THE DIVA DIARIESHere come the bridesAs I pen this missive, dear readers, I am off to a wedding in just a few hours. It is most definitely nuptials season here in Southwest Florida, even though its way too hot for our hair to look good and our makeup to stay intact, and for us to wiggle into the Spanx that were going to wear even though its 182 degrees outside. I do adore a wedding, though. I always have. I honestly think this has to do with my deep desire as a child to be a flower girl. As a wee diva, every single time I heard that someone I knew was getting married, I would beg and plead with them to be the flower girl (how awkward, right?). But I had no shame; I wanted that pretty taffeta dress and a crown of flowers in my hair, and I was certain that I could toss those petals with much more grace, style and aplomb than some other child who was only chosen due to being blood-related to the happy couple. Alas, I was never asked to be a flower girl. I held onto the dream for a long time, though until finally my poor mother had to look me in the eye and deliver the cold, hard truth: You are too old to be a flower girl. I think I was 17 or 18 at the time. My love for weddings has never waned. I cry at almost every single one, Im always the first on the dance floor and I take photos until my camera battery dies. But, having attended so many nuptials over the years, there are a few things Ive seen that are almost as out of place as a 17-year-old flower girl. Honestly, unless its your first wedding and youre under 30, dont make all bridesmaids all wear the exact same dress. Im sorry, but it needs to be said. Your 5-foot-2, size 14 cousin should not be made to stand anywhere near your 5-foot-10, size 4 college roommate in the same mint green strapless dress; thats just mean. Do what a friend of mine did a couple of years ago when I was in her wedding: She gave her bridal party a palette of colors to choose from and let them pick out their own frocks (which the bride approved before the big day). As a result, we bridesmaids felt both comfortable and happy. And thats what you want happy people at your wedding. You do not, however, want fallingdown-drunk people at your wedding. While I do believe an open bar is the way to go, I think it should be closed (closed completely and not turned into a cash bar) when the cake is served. At that point, switch to coffee and tea. I have seen far too many receptions marred by over-served 20-somethings getting sick in the corner or by schnockered old men getting into loud arguments with other old men. Finally, while I have lots of respect for tradition, I feel strongly that the following songs should be banned from all wedding receptions: The Electric Slide, Celebration (by Kool & The Gang), The Macarena and anything by Michael Buble. Lets come up with something new. Happy wedding season, Southwest Florida and heres hoping every little girl gets her shot at being a flower girl. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

In an age of cynicism and irony, Northwestern Mutual is a throwback to a more innocent time. The company is the antithesis of cool.

As such, it is a large portion of a budget and it is often one that is not well planned emotionally or financially. An often-used expression related to gifting is: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. The proverb is a form of tough love. It suggests that some giving is less than optimum less than optimum for the person needing assistance and possibly an undesirable option by the would-be giver. It suggests that gifts do not solve all problems of need and that the person needing sustenance is better off to develop skills that can serve him or her for a lifetime. Though seemingly harsh, the expression is appropriate to situations where the recipient of a gift would be better off to learn a skill, get a job, etc. However, sometimes the expression is deftly employed to deflect a reasonable request for assistance or aid. So this expression is sometimes used rightly and sometimes wrongly. Many are surprised to learn that this expression was not birthed on U.S. soil. The wisdom travelled from the Far East, as it is an ancient Chinese proverb. Many would be puzzled to learn of this source, as we visualize Chinas populace as mired in poverty for centuries. The gut reaction, many would ask, Who in ancient China would have had a spare fish to give to a fellow man in need? We all know of current circumstances when the giving (of fish) to our fellow man does not solve the need and, far worse, the gift creates a dependency, expectancy and an attitude of entitlement. Often, the gift robs the recipient of the self-worth and self-esteem garnered by the struggles/labor/effort to affect a solution. We take objection to giving not just with regard to our personal giving to fellow man, but also church giving and government aid. We value teaching skills of self-sustenance. Of course, there are circumstances when a fish needs to be given. Teaching fishing to elderly widows, orphans and young children is inappropriate, ill-timed and impossible. Declinations of gifts to such persons in need cannot be explained by this expressions tough love. It just doesnt apply. Sometimes givers find themselves betwixt and between. Figuring what best applies (e.g., giving or teaching or both) can be challenging. Givers ask themselves: Is it better to give or to teach self-sustenance? The question is quickly followed by: Do I have the time to teach others core sustenance skills? or Do I really want to get that involved? Giving the fish as well as coming alongside the person in financial need and teaching him or her how to right the ship is a double-fold commitment. Beyond our relationships with fellow man, the giving fish or teaching fishing is of much greater importance when dealing with our children. They are raised seeing and knowing our giving. Hopefully they are raised to want to learn to fish and with parents giving them as many life skills as possible. Our children will likely inherit much of our estate, but we do not want our giving to them to be a hindrance to their development of skills, discovery of their potential and full realization of healthy self-esteem and courage to handle lifes diverse problems. And so we often hold back giving to them until they have developed skill-sets and behaviors that assure their independence and ability to provide for themselves and their dependents. Many parents are rethinking the best way to give to their children. Parents understand the harsh realities of the employment market, the very high rates of employment downsizing, the declining business opportunities for the middle class and the competitive nature of the international labor force. For some parents, the solution is to help their children start their own business or to bring them into a family business such that it will be continued upon the parents death. This strategy covers a lot of the bases. In an environment of ever increasing taxation, a business that allows you to take legitimate business expenses (car, gas, travel, education, health care, etc.). This does not mean that you falsely take deductions. It means that as a business owner you can choose your car type; the quality of the health-care program; the industry conferences to attend, etc. In an environment of higher turnover of middle class managerial positions, owning your own business assures that the terms of your exit from the business have greater probability of being determined by you rather than a strange corporate acquirer or a new ax-wielding, corporate downsizing expert. In an environment in which grandchildren face great temptations to dissociate from the family and/or choose drugs, alcohol or fast driving or retail-therapy, a family-owned business can capture the interest and aspirations of grandchildren and keep them closer to the values and lifestyle that parents long to instill. As such is the case, the U.S. version of the proverb might be expanded: Buy your children a (fishing) business instead of gifts (of fish), but still teach them to fish so that they can manage their business and/or create skills for self-sustenance.

Most of us can agree that cynicism is ugly. It trivializes the gravity of bad behavior and normalizes superior attitudes toward customers and, often, coworkers. But Mr. Karlgaard insists that widespread cynicism is also a red flag that something is seriously awry in your company. And that something centers on trust. Cynicism is the defense mechanism of people who feel unsafe and powerless, he explains. Its an expression of the uncertainty that comes from working in an environment where ethics are lax, employees dont feel valued and information is withheld. When it thrives in an organization, it signals a lack of employee trust a problem thats gotten significantly worse over the last generation. Building trust is not just a nice thing to do. Its a strategic thing to do. Trust underlies effective working relationships, Mr. Karlgaard says. It improves group effectiveness and performance. It underpins organizational credibility and resilience. All of these factors contribute to creating a sustainable competitive advantage, because trust attracts talent, strengthens partnerships and retains customers. The good news is you can tap into the strategic power of trust by consciously shifting your companys culture. Heres how: Know that trust has two dimensions: external and internal. First, theres the external trust between an organization and its customers: Will a company stand behind its products? If something goes wrong, will the company do the right thing? The second dimension is the internal trust between employees, managers and top-level management. Do leaders keep their promises? Can employees speak up without censure? Do people have each others back (or stab them in it)? Generally, whats true externally is also true internally. When employees can trust leaders and each other, customers can trust employees, Mr. Karlgaard says. And vice versa, of course. Cynicism cannot be eradicated if trust doesnt extend in all directions. Get clear on what a culture of trust and earnestness looks like. No doubt your employees have (probably very strong) opinions on trust within your company and where theyd like to see improvements. Hold a company-wide summit where everyone can share those opinions and include an anonymous component such as a suggestion box or survey. Get everyones input, from the C-suite to the custodian. Your goal should be to pin down exactly how a culture of trust translates to leader and employee behaviors. Then, get the rules in writing. Put the results of your trust summit in writing and ask all employees to sign this document. It should spell out actions such as, I will not badmouth customers, or, If I have something to say to an employee, Ill say it to his face. Some companies have even gone so far as to prohibit blind ccing in order to promote a culture of trust. Creating an official standards of behavior document helps crystallize the attitude youre hoping to cultivate, Mr. Karlgaard says. Just saying Lets all be trustworthy now means nothing. Creating the document shows that your organization is willing to go beyond mere lip service. Plus, people are just more likely to abide by an agreement if theyve signed their name to it. Let only Boy Scouts lead. (And Girl Scouts too, of course!) People will emulate leader behavior, whether its good or bad. Its just human nature. Leaders who roll their eyes when a certain customer calls are giving permission for employees to be similarly disrespectful. Show employees that you care. When people dont believe their leaders care about them, not just as workers but as human beings, of course trust cant thrive. And while its true that fake or contrived caring only increases cynicism, genuine caring dissolves it. This means leaders must be people persons who stand up for their employees best interests and dont mind showing (appropriate) affection. Aspire to predictability. It sounds a little dull, doesnt it? Most of us want to be known as creative, outside-the-box thinkers. We dont want to be bound by routine or limited by the way everyone else does it. Embrace innovation to your hearts content in areas such as product development and marketing campaigns. Just dont be unpredictable in your behavior, priorities and values. Make it safe to speak up. When your employees make an honest mistake, can they admit it without being scolded and belittled? What about input and ideas? Can they share those things and expect to be taken seriously? Hopefully, the answers to both questions is yes. Everyone should feel confident that they can participate in meetings and projects, say whats on their mind, be respected for their opinions and ideas and admit mistakes. Celebrate grit and gumption. If you want employees to be worker bees performing the tasks you designate, on a timeline you set compensate them with paychecks only. But if you want your employees to be partners, youve got to reinforce them when they act like partners. In other words, take notice when they display passion and motivation (grit) and initiative and guts (gumption). Constantly drive home the meaning of the work people do. One of the best methods to increase trust is to identify your greater purpose, your true north, as Mr. Karlgaard calls it. Why do you exist? What meaningful value do you offer to employees, customers or society? A great purpose should be aspirational, not merely financial. It should create a common cause and promote a collective effort. It should answer all the tough questions of why: Why commit? Why persist? And, most important, why trust?

I developed the worlds first canned ham in 1926, and in 1937 introduced SPAM luncheon meat. (Ive since produced more than 7 billion cans of SPAM!) In 1949, I began advertising via a 60-member traveling troupe of female musicians who entertained and sold my wares. My offerings today include Jennie-O turkey products and brands such as Dinty Moore, Don Miguel, El Torito, Peloponnese, Wholly Guacamole, Herdez, House of Tsang, Lloyds and Herb-Ox.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Bank or Mortgage Broker?When buying a home, you might use a mortgage broker to secure your loan, or you might start out dealing directly with a bank. Mortgage brokers offer a wide range of loans and can shop your loan to lots of lenders, upping your odds of getting approved. Theyll also guide you through the rather complicated mortgage process, and can help you decide which kind of loan is best for you (fixed-rate vs. adjustable-rate, 15-year term vs. 30-year term, paying points or no points, etc.). They can also review your application documents and explain what you can or might not qualify for, saving time if you were likely to be rejected. All this can ease your anxiety, especially if its your first home purchase. Bankers will counter, though, that they can also guide you through the process, and they might be able to get you approved more quickly, too. (Brokers can also be fast, though.) They also have more control over approving and closing your loan.Either option could work out well for you, as long as youre comfortable with the person youre dealing with, and have discussed your needs and preferences. Ask friends whove recently gone through the process for referrals, and perhaps ask Realtors, as well. Know that there are bad brokers and bad bankers, so some due diligence and shopping around can pay off. You can compare various banks rates, for instance, and develop a sense of the rates that should be available to you.Its also worthwhile to read up on mortgages before getting one. For example, if you dont make sure that your loan charges no prepayment penalty, you may find that you cant make extra payments to build equity faster and shorten the life of your loan. You might also spend time improving your credit rating (such as by paying down credit card debt and fixing any errors in your credit report) in order to qualify for better interest rates. That can save you a bundle. Learn more at Fool. com and Bankrate. com. Canceled StampsSome time ago, I got tired of stuffing mattresses in this low-yield world and began to invest in earnest outside of my retirement funds. I wanted to test the waters of stock investing and decided to become a dividend investor. Unfortunately, I fell prey to chasing high dividend yields, such as that of Pitney Bowes, which had a yield above 8 percent at the time. I later ignored the signs of declining revenue and erosion of the physical mail business. I even bought more shares as the stock fell. My lessons learned: (1) Chasing the highest dividend yields is bad for your (f inancial) health. And (2), not all high-yielding stocks need be avoided just make sure you understand and believe in their long-term business models. W.S., onlineThe Fool Responds: The growth of electronic communications has dealt a blow to the king of postage meters. Pitney Bowes has other businesses, though, and a chance at long-term success. Its stock has gained ground over the past five years. Still, tough times led it to slash its dividend in half last year, and it recently yielded 3 percent. A Tasty Portfolio CandidateYou may not recognize the Yum! Brands (NYSE: YUM) company, until you learn that it encompasses the KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut brands and sports over 40,000 eateries in more than 125 countries and territories. Those names are global leaders in their categories, but the company ran into trouble in China last year due to difficulties with some of its poultry suppliers. It appears to be poised to rebound now. Yum! recently reported its first-quarter results, with revenue rising 5 percent over year-ago levels and earnings per share surging 24 percent. The news on the domestic front wasnt great, with U.S. operating profits falling, but Yum! seems to be recovering in the key market of China, where its positioned for growth and materially outperforming major competitors. The company is expanding in the populous nation of India, too, where the middleincome consumer is on the rise, demand for American brands is high, and theres much growth potential. To further fuel domestic growth, Taco Bell has launched a breakfast menu and is testing a whole new restaurant chain, the more upscale U.S. Taco Co. With a recent price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 31, the stock may not be a screaming bargain. But it does offer a dividend near 2 percent, which has nearly doubled over the past five years. Long-term investors might consider buying now or waiting for a dip. My founder, billionaire Sheldon Adelson, is known today for his generous support of the Republican Party. He made a name (and fortune) for himself earlier, though, by founding the COMDEX computer trade show in 1979. Later he bought a Las Vegas hotel and launched his empire. Today, Im the worlds largest casino operator, with a market value topping $60 billion. My two key properties on the Las Vegas Strip are the Venetian and the Palazzo. I was also among the first to build in Macau, Chinas gamblingfriendly region now a bigger gambling venue than Las Vegas. Who am I? (Las Vegas Sands) Apple SlicesQI see that Apple is splitting its stock 7-to-1. Does that mean its time to buy? C.D., DenverAStock splits are not very meaningful. In this case, for every share of Apple stock a shareholder owns, shell end up with seven. So 100 shares will turn into 700. That seems like one would suddenly be much richer, but at the same time that the shares increase in number, they decrease in price proportionately. Thus, theres little real difference for the shareholder. (In a simpler example, with a 2-for-1 split, 100 shares of a $40 stock would become 200 shares of a $20 stock, worth $400 before and after.)Apples shares did surge when the split was announced, but the company also reported strong quarterly results at the same time, along with an increase in its dividend and stock repurchase plans. What the split really accomplishes is getting its stock price (recently near $570) down to a more inviting level for would-be buyers.(Many dont realize that they can just buy one or a few shares of a pricey stock, and unnecessarily favor lower prices.) It also makes Apple more likely to be included among the 30 stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Since the Dow is stock-priceweighted, high-priced stocks exert extra influence. ***QWhats a companys payout ratio? P.L., Memphis, Tenn.AIts the percentage of a companys earnings represented by its dividend. Ford Motor Co., for example, pays out $0.50 per share annually, and its trailing 12 months of earnings total $1.76 per share. Divide the former by the latter and you get a 28 percent payout ratio, meaning 28 percent of Fords earnings go to its dividend. Very high payout ratios can flag unsustainable dividends.

Welcome to Minto at Talon course voted #1 in the Naples Daily News Dream 18 Series of Golf Holes. CSCAPESReal estate prices outpacing appraisalsWhether in good times or bad, one of the most frustrating steps for homebuyers is the appraisal process. Now, after six years of stagnant prices, home values are rising, igniting bidding wars and, in many cases, outpacing current appraisals. Translation: The already complex process of financing a home is further complicated by the appraisal itself as buyers make increasingly higher offers (based on real market pricing) while appraisal values lag behind as often as six months and more. But before I get into the how and why of what is happening, and some of the things you might be able to do about it, lets look at it from the perspective of the appraiser.The processFirst of all, the appraiser is an independent representative of an independent company. In other words, it is unethical for an appraisal company to even attempt to influence one of its appraisers to value a property up or down. That said, an appraiser is bound only by his or her best determination of value based on a homes condition and on recently comparable closings. The comparable part can be affected by internal aspects, however. Two similar homes in the same neighborhood can be valued differently due to improvements, additions, etc. but rarely dramatically so. Thats why its so important to hire an experienced appraiser who is familiar with the variations in values in your neighborhood, street-to-street, exposure-to-exposure. Dont be tempted to save a few dollars by using an online or out-of-the-area appraiser. Local knowledge is critical to getting an accurate appraisal, as is timing, because when valuations in an area are several months old, especially in a fluctuating market, discrepancies can occur.So what can you do?Understanding the process does ease the stress of a buying a home somewhat, but in a personal sense, you are limited in what you can do to better your chances of getting a higher appraisal. Thats the world we all live in and, unfortunately, it can work for or against us depending on factors largely out of our control. Still there are some things you can do. They include: Spruce up your home. Clean and deep clean and, if warranted, give the interiors and exteriors a new coat of paint. Shrubbery, plants, trees, sidewalks and paths should all be made to appear as new and clean and fresh as possible. These are relatively inexpensive, superficial improvements, but they score big marks with appraisers (and prospective buyers). Document improvements. Type up a list of all improvements you have made over the years. Include dates and, if you have them, receipts to support the improvements and their cost. Before-and-after photos are always a plus as well. And dont overlook unseen improvements, such as the installation of hurricane straps, insulation and other not-so-obvious upgrades (new g utters, safety hoses for all your plumbing, roofing improvements, etc.). Point out the differences. Even in a uniform neighborhood, differences can exist between your house and the supposedly identical house next door. You might have a better view, for example, a larger swimming pool or more closet space. Whatever it is, type it up and give the list with supporting photos to the appraiser as a take-away.When all else failsA good Realtor will do everything in their power to help you get the appraisal your property rightfully deserves. In most cases, the steps they take will be proactive (meaning, occurring before the appraiser has even seen your property). These include the documentation of improvements and pointing out your propertys uniqueness, yes but they might also include any number of strategies and practices that your Realtor has at the ready based on knowledge, skill and experience. Nonetheless, with market values outpacing appraised values, buyers, sellers and lenders are increasingly contesting appraisals. Again, look to your Realtor if you must resort to this last resort. Of all the parties involved in the transaction, your Realtor is in the best position to go to bat for you when it comes to challenging an appraisal.

Kristen Alderson cant wait to swap the rigors of her day job as a soap opera actress for a fun and fulfilling weekend on Marco Island. Ms. Alderson, who portrays Kiki Jerome (once thought to be the longlost heiress to the Quartermaine fortune) on General Hospital, will be joined by nine other daytime melodrama stars at the 15th annual Southwest Florida SoapFest Charity Weekend May 24-26. For her third SoapFest, Ms. Alderson will be accompanied by a first-time attendee, her onand off-screen boyfriend, Chad Duell, who plays Michael Corinthos (whose brother Morgan has also attracted the romantic attentions of Kiki). Im so excited, says Ms. Alderson from her home base of Los Angeles. Every year, its just a blast. Im excited to show Chad how much fun it is and to get to work with the kids. The festival enables fans to rub elbows with the daytime stars at a series of public fundraisers. It also includes the private Art 4 Autism painting session that matches stars with children and adults with autism to team up on paintings for auctioning at a later SoapFest event. Joining Ms. Alderson and Mr. Duell will be: Fellow General Hospital cast members Bryan Craig and Kelly Thiebaud John Driscoll, Jeff Branson and Christian LeBlanc of The Young and The Restless Tom Pelphrey of The Guiding Light From One Life to Live, Eddie Alderson (Ms. Aldersons brother) and Melissa Archer, who also appears on the Web series Beacon Hill.

Bay Dr. Looking for a New Dermatologist? SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSA very special lunch dateDuring a recent trip to New York, my friend Julia made a bold suggestion. Lets have lunch at the Four Seasons, she said. A mutual friend had hinted that the hotels restaurant might soon be closing, and the iconic institution would vanish like Cats on Broadway and affordable rent. We should go, Julia said, before it disappears. Never mind that were both youngish writers early in our careers, that Julias parents help with her rent and we both make a living from the freelance hustle. Forget that the people who normally lunch at the Four Seasons can expense their $50 entrees. Come on, she coaxed. We can wear our power suits. As it turns out, neither of us owns a power suit. But we did each have one good dress, bought for readings and other writerly events. Mine came from Bloomingdales, and Id saved up gift cards from three Christmases and birthdays to purchase it. I wore my hair up and my one set of good jewelry. Julia, who is an art writer and has a stylish, eclectic taste, looked very much like a hot new author. People probably think Im your agent, I said, laughing, as she walked in. After we were seated, I took a moment to survey the dining room and eye the sea of older men in suits. There were six women in the restaurant: two at the table across from us, clearly there from out of town to make a business pitch; one young woman at a table of men at the back of the room, dressed in a conservative gray suit and pearls, who didnt speak for the entire meal; and an older woman in a sleeveless fuchsia top who looked very much as if she had just taken the train in from Connecticut dining with a man who seemed to be her husband. And Julia and I, of course, in our fresh dresses and careful makeup, looking, surprisingly, as if we belonged. We ordered and made small talk. Soon the waiter set down two bowls of asparagus soup, and as we began eating I casually remarked to my friend, I would date any one of these men. She looked around, eyebrows raised. These guys? Sure, I said. That way Id have someone to take me to lunch at the Four Seasons. Julia just laughed and shook her head. Our entrees came crab cakes for her, stuffed rabbit for me and though we passed on dessert, afterward we ordered cups of tea that cost the same as lunch would have elsewhere. When the bill arrived, neither of us flinched. It was exactly as we had expected: astronomical. But we were prepared. Were careful with our money, and neither of us is a big spender. I dont treat myself often. Hardly ever, in fact. As I slipped the money out of my wallet to cover my half of the bill, I flushed a little with pride. And then I had a sudden, stunning realization. I didnt need any of those suited men to buy me lunch. I could take myself out.

The Celebrity Karaoke Bar Bash takes place from 9 p.m. until closing Saturday, May 25, at Porkys Restaurant and Lounge. SoapFest concludes with a VIP sponsor brunch with The Boys of Daytime on Sunday, May 26. SoapFest began as a fundraiser for the annual Marco Island Film Festival, which operated for six years, ending in 2004, says Marco resident Pat Berry. Ms. Berry was a film festival founder and is the founder and main organizer for SoapFest. I was pretty well acquainted with one of the executive producers at The Guiding Light, says Ms. Berry, a lifelong soap opera fan. I was up there (New York City) on a visit to the studio and I asked him if the actors would be interested doing a fundraiser for us. SoapFests 1998 debut featured five daytime actors, none of them a main character. Among them were a pair of then child actors whove attained success as young adults: Hayden Panettiere, who plays Juliette Barnes on the ABC musical drama series Nashville, and Brittany Snow, who co-starred in the 2012 movie Pitch Perfect. When the Marco Island Film Festival ceased to be, Ms. Berry and other festival board members decided to continue SoapFest as a fundraiser, primarily for Eden Autism Services in Naples, which closed in 2012. After a years hiatus, SoapFest is making a return this year. Beneficiaries include Camp Able, a summer camp for special needs children put on by St. Marks Episcopal Church, and the Island Theater Company Kids Program.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 15-21, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 Young artists earn scholarships for their college studiesThe Naples Art Association has awarded $11,000 in merit-based Jade Riedel Scholarships to Collier County high school juniors and seniors. Students planning to further their art education at the collegiate level were eligible for one of six $1,000 scholarships. Seniors who have been accepted to Ringling College of Art + Design were also considered for a $5,000 scholarship. Works by all 23 Jade N. Riedel Scholarship artists are on display at The von Liebig Art Center through May 23. This years juror was Jade Dellinger, director of the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at Edison State College in Fort Myers (where he recently presented a major new show with artist Yoko Ono). Mr. Dellinger has worked closely for the last two decades on curatorial projects and organized exhibitions for both the Tampa Museum of Art and the Contemporary Art Museum at the University of South Florida. The $5,000 scholarship to attend Ringling College of Art + Design was awarded to Community School of Naples senior Jesica Glass. Naples Art Association awarded six $1,000 scholarships to the following: Kara Bressler, Tristan Burfield and Jieqiu Wu, Community School of Naples; Kristen Camisa, Gulf Coast High School; Darice Pollard, Naples High School; and Suanny Gonzalez, Palmetto Ridge High School. The Jade N. Riedel Scholarship competition began in 1971 when members of the NAA initiated a college scholarship program designed to encourage young aspiring artists to realize their dreams of becoming professionals in the visual arts. The scholarships namesake, an NAA member artist, served as the chair of the scholarship exhibition program and was its chief fundraiser for many years. Upon her death in 1997, NAA renamed the scholarship in her memory. The program has continued thanks to generous donations made during exhibitions, special events and festivals. This year, The Martin Foundation contributed $5,000 toward funding the six $1,000 scholarships. For more information or to support the Jade N. Riedel Scholarship Program, contact Callie Spilane by calling 262-6517, ext. 110, or emailing email@example.com.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 15-21, 2014 are thrilled that the company will revive the show this December. Narcissists Dream Award To: The set of OnceThe Irish bar in Once at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall had at least 50 mirrors of various sizes on three walls. So if audience adulation wasnt enough, the actors could feed their narcissism by admiring their reflections. Audience members, too, could preen in front of myriad mirrors, as they were allowed on stage prior to the performance and at intermission to purchase drinks at the bar or just mill about. Most Organic Sound Award To: OnceOnce had some of the best sound design Ive ever experienced in a musical. It was impressive, the way the sound was so intimate, despite the size of the hall. The acoustic instruments (banjo, mandolin, cello, piano) could be heard clearly, but werent overamplified. The songs also seemed to flow organically from the action. We also appreciated the attention to aural detail. When a character was listening to music through earphones, the music played at full volume; when she took them off, we still heard the music, but only as a tiny trickle. In another scene, when two characters were having a transatlantic phone conversation, the womans voice crackled and sounded as if it were actually being transmitted thousands of miles. Better Than Ice Cream Award To: Quartetto GelatoWe declare Quartetto Gelato, which played at the Sugden Community Theatre as part of this years ArtsNaples Festival, better than ice cream because the quartet includes a master accordionist. We wish every quartet had an accordion! I Dreamed I Was Onstage in My Maidenform Bra Award To: Ann D. HurstAnn D. Hurst played a pain-in-theneck mother in Florida Repertory Theatres production of Social Security. At one point, when company is about to arrive, shes urged to get out of her robe and get dressed so she drops her robe, standing there in her s bra and girdle, almost as if she were re-enacting one of those old I Dreamed I Was Maidenform Bra advertisements. Better Than a Comedy Club Award To: Alexander McCall Smith and Meg Wolitzer (tie)Novelists sit in front of their laptops all day long, interacting only with their characters. Theyre not expected to be eloquent or vivacious public speakers. But two writers surprised us with their endless wit this season, making us laugh almost non-stop throughout their presentations: Alexander McCall Smith (known for his No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series) at the Sanibel Library, and Meg Wolitzer (who most recently wrote The Interestings) at Critics Choice at ArtisNaples. Best Irish Accent Award To: Derry WoodhouseDerry Woodhouse portrayed Pato in Theatre Conspiracys production of The Beauty Queen of Leenane. And though the others in the show had great Irish accents, Mr. Woodhouses was the best. Why? It comes natural. Hes a native of Limerick, Ireland. Best Cross-Country Trip Award To: The cast of The Grapes of WrathIn The Grapes of Wrath, the Joads travel from Oklahoma to California in hopes of finding work. How in the world do you depict that on stage? Kudos to the Asolo Theatre in Sarasota for doing it so convincingly, in a way that never felt contrived. Catharsis Award To: Rocio MolinaThose lucky enough to attend Rocio Molinas flamenco performance at the Ringling International Arts Festival were treated to a flurry of passionate, rapid-fire steps and movements. Her dance was innovative and exhilarating, a revelation as to what flamenco can be in the 21st century. It was cathartic, even if we were only in our seats watching. Extra Body Award To: Bill Taylor and Rachel Burttram (tie)Theatre Conspiracy founder and Artistic Director Bill Taylor went all the way to Orlando to get a custommade fat suit for his portrayal of a 600-pound man in The Whale, transforming his average-sized frame into a mountain of a man, marooned on his couch. And Florida Rep ensemble member Rachel Burttram portrayed two characters in Clybourne Park, both pregnant, and did it so convincingly that some wondered if the actress herself was expecting. (She is not. It was great acting and the magic of theater costuming.) Kinky Boots Award To: Venus in FurGulfshore Playhouses production of Venus in Fur had some of the sexiest costuming weve seen lately: kinky boots, kinky underwear and sexy black leather jackets. Would you expect anything less from a show about S/M and gender power plays? Story Stealer Award To: Collected Stories and Saving Mr. Banks (tie)It must have been the season for people stealing others stories. In Collected Stories, in Florida Reps ArtStage Studio Theatre, Lisa (Deanna Gibon), as a young writing student, steals her mentors life story to use for her novel, betraying her trust and also getting it wrong. And in the Disney movie Saving Mr. Banks, Walt Disney breaks his promises to novelist P.L. Travers and turns her acerbic, no-nonsense Mary Poppins into a cheerful, singing and dancing nanny. Plus, he adds animation, though he said he wouldnt. Weve heard horror stories of how Hollywood transforms novels into something their creators dont even recognize. Saving Mr. Banks is a good example of that. Most Adorable Winemakers Award To: Viki Boyle and Carrie LundIn Florida Reps production of the classic Arsenic and Old Lace, Viki Boyle and Carrie Lund played the B rewster sisters: two older women who kill lonely widowers with their poisoned homemade elderberry wine. Though their actions are reprehensible, the two portrayed their characters with such sweet charm you just wanted to pinch their cheeks, put them in your pockets, and take them home with you and would willingly drink elderberry wine with them, despite the consequences. The One That Got Away Award To: Kendrick Lamar and the Sunshine Music & Blues Festival (tie)Hip-hop artist Kendrick Lamar, whose latest, good kid, m.A.A.d city, was a best seller and won critical acclaim, was scheduled to perform at Germain Arena, along with Ludacris, as part of Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Eaglepalooza. We were disappointed, but understood, when he canceled to go on tour with Kanye West. But it meant we wouldnt get to hear Swimming Pools (Drank) and Bitch, Dont Kill My Vibe performed in person.

Ignore any attempts to get you to ease up on your efforts. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Family continues to be the dominant factor, but career matters also take on new importance. You might even be able to combine elements of the two in some surprising, productive way. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A realistic view of a workplace or personal situation helps you deal with it more constructively once you know where the truth lies. Reserve the weekend for someone special. LEO (July 23 to August 22) As much as you Leos or Leonas might be intrigued by the sunny prospects touted for a potential investment, be careful that you dont allow the glare to blind you to its essential details. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A friends problem brings out the Virgos nurturing nature in full force. However, dont go it alone. Allow others to pitch in and help share the responsibilities youve assumed. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A business decision might need to be put off until a colleagues personal matter is resolved. Use this time to work on another business matter that youve been anxious to get to. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Relationships (personal or professional) might appear to be stalled because of details that keep cropping up and that need tending to. Be patient. A path begins to clear soon. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A promotion could cause resentment among envious colleagues. But others recognize how hard you worked to earn it, and will be there to support you if you need them. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Handling a delicate personal matter needs both your wisdom and your warmth. Expect some setbacks, but stay with it. The outcome will more than justify your efforts. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Resist the temptation to cut corners just because time is short. Best to move ahead step by step so you dont overlook anything that might later create time-wasting complications. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Use the good will you recently earned with that well-received project to pitch your ideas for a new project. Expect some tough competition, though, from an unlikely source. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) An unexpected development could change the Arians perspective on a potential investment.

Pamper yourself this summer. Is it worth $10? YesNeighbors has a one-note premise that could tire quickly: Loving couple and new parents Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) move into their dream home. A short time later a college fraternity moves in next door, so between the baby and loud partying, Mac and Kelly cant get a moment of quiet. Weve seen the game of dueling neighbors before, and it often gets old fast. Worse, the concept is only marginally funny to begin with, which means its of utmost importance for the script, comedy bits and timing to be spot on. Thankfully, Neighbors succeeds. This is partially due to the frequent attempts at shock value, often of questionable taste. For example, we meet Mac and Kelly in the first scene as they have sex in front of baby Stella (Elise and Zoey Vargas). Shes too young to realize whats happening they hope. Later they consider taking Stella to a club, and the next day Mac takes a break from work to smoke a joint with his buddy Jimmy (Ike Barinholtz). Responsible parents they are not. The intention, of course, is to show that the young-ish Mac and Kelly arent quite ready to leave their wild and free party days behind. Accordingly, they have a great time when Delta Psi brothers Teddy (Zac Efron, looking hunky sans shirt) and Pete (Dave Franco) invite them to the housewarming party. For Mac and Kelly its a one-time thing in an effort to not be old and lame; for the frat, crazy partying is a nightly occurrence. Eventually, Mac and Kelly try to anonymously call the police to quiet the noise, which blows up in their face and starts a turf war. This leads to a middle section in which each side plots against the other, and as the situation escalates, so does the danger. Within these safety-disregarding pranks lie a number of imaginative hilarities, including a dildo sale and a plethora of juvenile boy humor. Theres also nudity, a breast milk disaster and the history of toga parties, beer pong and the boot and rally. Note: If you dont know what at least two of those things are, this movie is not for you. Director Nicholas Stoller and writers Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan OBrien make it a point to reveal why the frat had to move next door, why other neighbors dont complain, why Mac and Kelly cant sell the house and why they cant go back to the police. This is important because it means the filmmakers are honest with the viewers and arent straining credulity by disregarding obvious questions. Youd be surprised how many movies take this liberty, and suffer from it. Neighbors is a solid comedy for those wanting a good laugh. It does not belong in the annals of great college frat movies (its certainly no Animal House), but the party scenes are appropriately upbeat, reckless and wild. This is a film that knows how to be outrageous, and we the viewers reap the benefits. p y dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Lisa Kudrow has an extended cameo as the university dean.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx) Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Mr. Garfield) loves Gwen Stacy (Ms. Stone) and protects the city from supercharged villain Electro (Jamie Foxx). The action is fun, but the real highlight is the charming chemistry between Mr. Garfield and Ms. Stone. Rated PG-13.Fading Gigolo (John Turturro, Woody Allen, Sofia Vergara) When his older friend (Mr. Allen) says he knows two women (Ms. Vergara and Sharon Stone) willing to pay for a threesome, Floravante (Mr. Turturro) takes the job. It strains for laughs and the dramatic elements feel halfbaked. Mr. Turturro also wrote and directed; no one should write jokes for Mr. Allen other than Mr. Allen. Rated R.The Railway Man (Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Hiroyuki Sanada) In 1980 a British man (Mr. Firth) is given the chance to confront the Japanese soldier (Mr. Sanada) who tortured him at a POW camp during World War II. The jumping timeline between past and present doesnt serve the movie well, and the performances are only so-so. Based on a true story. Rated R. Transcendence 1/2(Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman) A terminally ill scientist uploads his brain into a computer and evolves at a dangerously alarming rate. The ending is given away in the beginning, and the second half is a bit too much sci-fi fantasy for its own good. Still, it gives you plenty to think about. Rated PG-13. Rio 2 (Voices of Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, Andy Garcia) Blue (Mr. Eisenberg), Jewel (Ms. Hathaway) their kids and friends venture into the Amazon to find other blue macaws. But instead, they find grave danger and Jewels father. Its only mildly amusing overall, with forgettable songs, jokes that often miss and animation thats merely adequate. Rated G.Captain America: The Winter Soldier(Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan) Conflict within S.H.I.E.L.D. and an assassin named The Winter Soldier (Mr. Stan) force Captain America (Mr. Evans) and Black Widow (Ms. Johansson) to work under the radar while saving the world. The action is exciting and the story has enough twists to maintain interest throughout. This is everything a solid action movie should be. Rated PG-13.Noah (Russell Cr owe, J ennifer Connelly, Emma Watson) Noah (Mr. Crowe) faces grave moral dilemmas after God chooses him to build an ark to save animals when a forthcoming flood wipes out mankind. The visual effects are impressive, and Mr. Crowe gives the movie all he can. Too bad theres so much going on and so many gaps in logic that it doesnt hold together very well. Rated PG-13.Sabotage (Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Josh Holloway) A DEA task force led by Breacher (Mr. Schwarzenegger) is killed off one by one after the $10 million they stole goes missing. The ending leaves a bit to be desired, but overall its a good story with thrills that keep you invested.

Naples Princess... WINE BEER TASTINGS (Mr. Khan) and a forlorn housewife (Mr. Kaur). Its from Bollywood, but its not a musical as one might expect. Rather, its the type of calm, thoughtful drama thats appropriately heartwarming and sweet, emboldened by a kind of simplicity not often found in modern movies. Rated PG.The Grand Budapest Hotel (Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori, Owen Wilson) In a fictional European country circa 1932, hotel concierge M. Gustave (Mr. Fiennes) takes the new lobby boy (Mr. Revolori) on a series of adventures. It has the cotton candy visuals and innocence weve come to expect from writer/director Wes Anderson (Moonrise Kingdom), even when the main characters are being naughty. Rated R.Divergent (Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet, Theo James) In this dystopian future, people live in one of five factions, each based on the persons skill set. When young Tris (Ms. Woodley) doesnt fit into a faction and believes shes under attack, she looks to her love interest Four (Mr. James) for help. The story takes too long to get going and the action is disappointing. Based on the novel by Veronica Roth. Rated PG-13.Muppets Most Wanted (Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell) The Muppets are unwittingly embroiled in a jewel heist while on tour throughout Europe. This is what happens when your tour managers last name is Badguy (Mr. Gervais). The self-deprecating, silly humor, fun songs and cheeky story make this a fun sequel. Rated PG.Better Living Through Chemistry (Sam Rockwell, Olivia Wilde, Michelle Monaghan) Sad-sack pharmacist Doug (Mr. Rockwell) ditches his awful wife (Ms. Monaghan) for a neglected trophy wife (Ms. Wilde) who teaches him how to have fun. Doug goes from pitiable to despicable in a short period of time, and none of it is very entertaining. Not Rated (would be rated R). Pompeii(Kit Harington, Kiefer Sutherland, Emily Browning) With Mt. Vesuvius about to erupt in the ancient city of Pompeii, a slave-turned-gladiator (Mr. Harington) fights for the hand of a noble lady (Ms. Browning) whose family is caught in political turmoil. The effects are hit-and-miss, the acting mediocre and the story predictable. Rated PG-13. FILM CAPSULES

Signet/Eclipse. 304 pages. Mass market paperback. $7.99.This latest addition to Naples resident LuAnn McLanes popular Cricket Creek series is filled with romance, misunderstandings, fear of failure, small town warmth and the continued post-recession economic resurgence of this (for the most part) friendly Kentucky river town. Young Gabby Goodwin, a social outcast in her high school days because she came from the wrong part of town, has made her way to a degree of success as owner of a flower shop. Back in high school, she had a crush on notorious bad boy Reese Marino, but she kept it to herself for fear of rejection and because of concerns about troubled Reeses wild behavior. Now, after having been straightened out by living with his Uncle Tony in New York, college graduate Reese has remade himself without losing his charming good looks. He has returned to Cricket Creek with his uncle, and the two of them have opened River Row Pizza. Uncle Tony is still recovering from his wifes betrayal, and his anger is manifest in many ways. Reese returns to a place in which he and his mother, Tessa, suffered unhealed emotional wounds from the unexplained disappearance of Reeses father some 10 years back. The guy just up and left and hasnt been heard from since. Then theres Trish Daniels, a gorgeous woman who is more than a bit gun-shy in the wake of a failed marriage. Not a great background for romance, you might say. Youd be wrong. You dont know LuAnn McLane. To complete a multi-generational pattern of budding romance, the author focuses on Clyde, the Don Juan of the Whispers Edge retirement village, as another resident named Joy tries to make him a onewoman man. The common theme through the major potential pairings is an insecurity based on past experiences a fear of getting hurt again. Reese worries about still being plagued by his past reputation. Can he really start fresh back in Cricket Creek? Can Gabby think of him without being reminded of his youthful, mixed up self? Can river rat Gabby hold her head up in a town where she was a social outcast? For the middle-agers who are suffering the pain and humiliation of failed relationships, can they risk once again putting their philJASONpkjason@comcast.net MCLANETableclothes Fra g rances So aps Fren ch Foo d s More than 2,000 Provence Products 100% Made in France 878 Neapolitan Way, Naples firstname.lastname@example.orgCos m etics Bath & Bo d y GisOnly United States Store Dedicated to French Lavender Products Lavender has many positive beauty attributes; lavender oil is believed to have antiseptic and anti-inammatory properties.

FL License Ab2220 Pica AU 2641A Collectors Delight AuctionWednesday, May 21 12:00 NoonAmerican, Continental and Asian ne art, antiques and decorative arts hearts on the line? Can Tessa find closure after the disappearance of her husband? Knowing the patterns of romance literature, we expect that things will turn out well. However, LuAnn McLanes skill is in managing to create strong suspense elements even as the familiar formula guides the plot lines. She accomplishes this by being able to get into the heads of her characters and by building several missteps along the way. Tony steels himself against Trishs obvious charms of appearance and character. He tells himself that he must focus on building this new business to replace the one that was destroyed in the aftermath of his divorce. He uses rudeness as armor. Trish, who happens to be Tonys landlady, oversteps boundaries by taking his neglected dog out for exercise without asking. Gabby momentarily worries about whether or not Reese has truly reformed himself, unintentionally signaling her doubts and upsetting her ardent and reasonably patient suitor. In such ways, Wildflower Wedding (a tip-off title if ever there was one) builds tension even while moving in the inevitable direction. Ms. McLanes characters are sufficiently complex so that tension also arises from the intermingled strengths and flaws that struggle within each. Overall, of course, there is an upbeat tone. Cricket Creek is that kind of place. New businesses are booming, and an infectious confidence is in the air. New friendships are readily available. When theres a problem, people ask how they can help. Its a place made for second chances. Crisp dialogue, breezy humor, racy embraces and a deep-seated sense of place all combine to give Ms. McLanes Cricket Creek titles their undeniable appeal. Wildflower Wedding is a good place to start. Next up in the Cricket Creek series will be the October release of Sweet Harmony, a story with country music as the backdrop. And fans can look forward to the third novel in the series, Walking on Sunshine, in May 2015. Ms. McLane says she hopes to continue the series but also has other projects in the works, news about which she will share as soon as she can. Stay tuned.

Seminole culture in the spotlight at Collier County MuseumTwo exhibits at the Collier County Museum highlighting Seminole Indian culture Guy LaBree: The Barefoot Artist and Seminole Artists Brian and Pedro Zepeda: Rooted in Tradition are on display through June at the main museum at the Collier County Government Complex. A third generation Floridian, Guy LaBree was raised in the 1940s and s near the Seminole Indian Dania (now Hollywood) Reservation, where his many Seminole friends encouraged him to produce paintings depicting important teachings about Seminole culture, customs, history and legends as a way of passing on traditional knowledge to younger generations. His first art patron was James Billie, an alligator wrestler who was subsequently elected tribal chairman of the Florida Seminoles. Chief Billie sponsored Mr. LaBree's first one-man art show and, more importantly, introduced him to the tribes elders, medicine men and storytellers. He also added more than three dozen of Mr. LaBrees paintings to his collection during his five terms in office. Now a resident of Arcadia, Mr. LaBree has enhanced the originality and content of his work to a masters level. Two of his oil paintings now hang in the Smithsonian Institutions National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. His paintings illustrate Seminole storyteller Betty Mae Jumpers book, Legends of the Seminoles, and Carol Mahlers book, Guy LaBree: Barefoot Artist of the Florida Seminoles. Mr. LaBree is also the recipient of a 2014 Florida Folk Heritage Award from the Florida Department of State. A selection of 27 original paintings and gicles on loan from the artist and the Seminole Tribe of Floridas Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum comprise the Collier County Museum exhibit. Seminole Artists Brian and Pedro Zepeda: Rooted in Tradition features original woodcarvings, sculpture, patchwork, beadwork and illustrations by the Zepeda brothers, who are members of the Seminole Tribe of Florida. Brian Zepeda serves as tribal council liaison; Pedro Zepeda, a fine arts graduate from Stetson University, is the tribal museums former outreach and traditional arts coordinator. In addition to the main museum and the Naples Depot Museum in Naples, the Collier County museum network includes locations in Everglades City, Immokalee and Marco Island. The main museums 5-acre site includes a native plant garden, two early Naples cottages, a logging locomotive, swamp buggy and a WWII Sherman tank. Hours at the main museum are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. MondayFriday. Admission is free. For more information, call 252-8476 or visit www.colliermuseums.com.

Organized baseball didnt begin in the U.S. until 1857, with the formation of the National Association of Base Ball Players 16 teams from New York but the first professional teams were listed in 1869. Any baseball memorabilia from the 19th century is rare. Last month a poster for the 1884 championship game in Boston between the Philadelphia Keystones and the Boston Unions sold at auction for $15,000 at Bonhams in New York. The poster shows a batter and catcher in proper uniforms as they played on a site that is now Bostons Copley Square. Q: I own a Victorian gentlemans dresser thats about 70 inches high and 42 inches wide. It has a tall dressing mirror on one side and a smaller shaving mirror on the other side. The dressing mirror pulls out about on an extension mount and rotates about 70 degrees in either direction. Peerless Adjustable Mirror is stenciled on the back, where theres also a label with six 1890 patent numbers. One of the brackets is embossed Patd Jan. 14, 1890. Can you give me any information about this piece? A: A dresser similar to yours pictured in an 1891 newspaper ad didnt have the shaving mirror and was advertised as a ladys dresser. The ad claimed that the Peerless Adjustable Mirror was the only adjustable mirror made, and it could be adjusted to 16 different positions. A Jan. 14, 1890, patent was one of several patents granted for adjustable mirror supports in 1890. The tall dresser with the unusual mirrors has very little storage space. The 21st-century buyer wants drawers. Because of its limited usefulness, your dresser is not worth more than $400. Q: I have a Lalique Champs Elysees bowl shaped like two oak leaves. The leaves are frosted, and the base and connecting part are clear. The bowl is 7 inches high and 18 inches wide, and weighs 21 pounds. How much is it worth? A: Rene Lalique (1860-1945) began making Art Nouveau glass in Paris in the 1890s. Lalique glass still is being made. Pieces made by Rene were marked with the signature R. Lalique. Those made from 1945 until 1977 are marked Lalique France. Newer pieces include the letter R in a circle. Your bowl is worth about $1,000 to $2,000. The pattern still is being made. Q: I have a comp lete 65-piece set of dinnerware that includes place settings for eight and several serving pieces. The dishes have a wheat pattern in the center and a wide yellow border with gold trim.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 15-21, 2014 C19 A lithographed poster showing two baseball players competing in a championship game in Boston in 1884 sold for $15,000 at an April 2014 Bonhams auction in New York City. Sports memorabilia includes everything from lowpriced baseball cards to high-priced rarities and autographs. Theyre marked Century Service Corporation, Alliance, Ohio around a triangle. The words Semi vitreous dinnerware are written inside the triangle. Underneath the mark are the words Autumn Gold. Many people tell me the set of dishes I have is worth money. What do you think? A: Autumn Gold dinnerware was made by Homer Laughlin China Co. and distributed by Century Service Corp., one of several companies owned by Cunningham and Pickett of Alliance, Ohio. Cunningham and Pickett was founded in 1935. It distributed china, glassware, silverware and other items made by other companies. Homer Laughlin made dinnerware for Cunningham and Pickett from 1938 until 1969. You often can find dishes in your pattern for sale online. A five-piece place setting of Autumn Gold sells for about $30, a vegetable bowl for about $20.Q: I have a teapot that reads Made in Occupied Japan on the bottom. Other marks on the bottom look like the letter G surrounded by the letters C and U. I would like to know who made the teapot and what its worth. A: The mark on your teapot was used by the United China & Glass Co., an importer in New York and New Orleans that was founded by Abe Mayer in 1850. The UCAGCO mark was first used in the 1930s. UCAGCO was the first company allowed to import goods from Japan after the end of World War II. Items marked Made in Occupied Japan were made between 1947 and 195 2. The company was later sold to Sammons Enterprises. Your teapot is worth $20 to $30. Tip: Rhinestone jewelry can be gently cleaned. Use a makeup brush or a cotton swab to remove dust from any crevices. Be careful not loosen the stones. Spray some glass cleaner or denatured alcohol on a soft cloth, not on the jewelry. Rub gently. Do not rinse. Water damages the backing on rhinestones. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC20 WEEK OF MAY 15-21, 2014 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC20 WEEK OF MAY 15-21, 2014 CELEBRITY EXTRASouthland star finds new home in Gotham BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: Can you tell me what I can see Ben McKenzie in next? I loved him on Southland, and I really miss that series. Hallie F., via emailA: Ben returns to series television this fall when he stars in Foxs Gotham, which is a prequel series to the Batman movies. Ben plays a young James Gordon the police official whom Batman fans know as an eventual ally to Bruce Wayne/Batman. Judging by the teaser trailer online, this definitely is something Im going to watch. Q: I keep hearing rumors that a new Star Wars will be coming to theaters. Is that true, or is it going to be a TV series? Freddie T., Omaha, NebraskaA: The worst-kept secret in Hollywood was verified April 29 when director J.J. Abrams posted a picture on starwars.com of the first table read for the feature film Star Wars: Episode VII. Cast members include Harrison Ford, Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Andy Serkis, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega and Adam Driver. Q: Can you tell me if Almost Human will be back for another season? John J., via emailA: Fox opted not to renew the sci-fi crime drama set in 2048, which centered on John Kennex (played by Karl Urban) and his android police partner, Dorian (played by Michael Ealy). The show had been gaining in the ratings race in recent weeks; however, there are too many new powerhouse drama series (like the aforementioned Gotham) that Fox has ordered, and there just wasnt room for Almost Human. Q: Years ago, I used to watch Project Greenlight on HBO, and I really enjoyed it. Is it true that HBO is bringing the series back? George S. in KentuckyA: After being off the air for more than a decade, HBO has opted to bring back Matt Damon and Ben Afflecks filmmaker competition series for a third season. Ben revealed of the 20012003 series in a press statement: Project Greenlight was ahead of its time. Now that technology has caught up to the concept, we thought it was a perfect time to bring it back.

The fact that food is being prepared outdoors on a barbecue grill need not make the process of selecting a wine any more complex than when choosing one to go with food made in the kitchen. Whatever you are grilling, the main ingredients are simple: protein, whether it be pork, chicken, beef, seafood or tofu and spices, perhaps a dry rub or a wet sauce. The protein can be chopped or fileted, cut into individual portions or cooked whole, marinated or dry rubbed, smoked or pit cooked. Whatever the style, flavors range from mildly smoky to big and spicy, so wine choices will range along with the menu. First, start with a wine you like. It neednt be an expensive bottle, but whether its white or red, if youre planning to eat outside, make sure its a wine that tastes good chilled.Grilled meats or seafood pair well with crisp chardonnay or sauvignon blanc or, for a change of pace, a well-chilled albarino.Grilled steaks or hamburgers go well with a merlot or cabernet blend, but avoid older or more complex wines, as the flavors will get lost if you are slathering on a zesty barbecue sauce. If you plan to serve both beef and chicken or seafood, consider a pinot noir. The tannins will pair well with the beef, and the flavors are also well suited for shrimp, salmon and chicken dishes. Barbecue sauces are generally a challenge because they are high in acid (vinegar and tomato), so choose a sturdy shiraz or Rhone-style blend. Thicker sauces will go well with a petite sirah. For a white wine, a higher-acid sauvignon blanc (think New Zealand) will help cleanse the palate as well as refresh. Sparkling wine is a great choice for a barbecue as well, because it will cleanse the palate with its coldness and acidity. Wine picks of the week: Carmel Road Panorama Vineyard Pinot Noir Arroyo Seco 2011 ($35): From a certified sustainable vineyard, this wine is dark reddish purple in the glass with blackberry, oak and vanilla on the nose. Creamy flavors of plum, spice and blackberry linger on the drawn out finish. Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2011 ($12): Rich red color with flavors of blueberry and blackberry, mingling with cherry on the palate. Lighter bodied in a typical Washington state style, lower in tannins but with good acid on the finish. Cultivate The Feast California Red Blend 2010 ($17): A Bordeaux-style blend, mostly merlot with cabernet sauvignon, this wine is very smooth with dark color and medium body. The nose has blackberry and floral notes, mixing with plum and blueberry on the palate. The long, smooth finish has a touch of spice. Don Olegario Albarino Rias Biaxis 2012 ($20): Medium straw colored with apple and orange aromas, followed by citrus and tropical flavors on the palate. Fresh fruit flavors linger on the balanced finish. Kendall Jackson Grand Reserve Merlot Sonoma County 2011 ($20): Dark red in the glass, the aroma is black and red cherries with a floral note, mixing on the palate with plum and refined tannins for a smooth long finish. Kendall Jackson Vintners Reserve Syrah Santa Barbara County 2011 ($15): Dark red in color with aromas of dark cherry and blackberry, followed onto the palate with plum and blackberry flavors, and a touch of spice on the longish finish. Michael David Petite Petit Lodi 2011($20): An unusual mixture of petit verdot and petite syrah, it starts with rich dark color filled with aromas of cherry, wild berry and plum. The smooth palate is complex and leads to a long satisfying finish. Momo Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012 ($16): Light yellow colors with typical grapefruit and apple on the nose and palate. Finishes with a crisp and refreshing acidity. Post House Shiraz South Africa 2009 ($30): Dark rich color with plum and dark fruits on the nose and palate, and a polished long finish. Rondel Brut Cava NV ($12): Pale yellow color with good creamy bubbles, the nose has citrus and apple notes, followed onto the palate with more apple mixed with pear, ending citrusy with a balanced finish. Spy Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013 ($18): Light yellow color with subdued citrus on the nose, followed by apple and orchard fruits. The fruit flavors mix with spicy tropical flavors on the crisp finish. Momo Sauvignon Blanc

CUISINEPinos Pizzeria a real find amid more visible restaurant choices Out of sight used to be an expression to describe something that was, in todays parlance, awesome, cool, off the hook. When that same phrase is applied literally to a restaurant, the words have a far less positive spin. Out of sight of passing motorists or pedestrians looking for a place to eat can mean out of business unless a restaurant does something to attract diners to a hidden location. Pinos Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen in Bonita Springs faces just such a challenge. Situated in the end unit of a side wing perpendicular to the faade of a Publix Super Market plaza, the restaurant is easy to overlook. Theres even another Italian restaurant, La Fontanella, in a more visible spot in the same center, not to mention The British Open Pub and The Other Side in an outparcel in full sight of U.S. 41. Despite the competition and poor visibility, patrons have been finding Pinos since it opened in 2011 and discovering its noteworthy pizza, thoughtfully constructed pasta dishes and warm hospitality. There are fancier and more innovative Italian restaurants than this small, familyrun pizzeria, but Pinos earns props for delivering consistently pleasing renditions of classic dishes that could just as easily be rendered routinely. If you scope out the menu on the restaurants website, youll only scratch the surface of whats available at Pinos. An updated menu includes more appetizers, such as bruschetta, deep-fried green beans, bada bing chicken tenders and calamari. Burgers, wraps and panini also supplement the usual hot and cold Italian subs. Theres no wine list just a few house choices which is one area Pinos could improve upon. Its just a stones throw from an upscale gated community, after all. We settled for bottles of Heineken and Sam Adams ($3.75 each). Our thoughtful waitress informed us we were just in time to take advantage of the early-bird special menu even though we didnt know about it and she could have just as easily not mentioned it. It turned out to be a great deal, because our entrees each cost about $4 less and included mini desserts. Soup or salad and garlic knots are included with all pasta entrees. The pizza is described as Brooklyn style, a nod to the roots of owners Joe and Linda Russo, who originally opened with the name Taste of Brooklyn. Framed posters of New York City scenes are scattered throughout the simply decorated dining room. We decided to start with a pizza as an appetizer, something we often do in Italian restaurants because, well, youve got to try the house pie while also giving the extensive pasta dishes and baked entrees their due. The 16-inch Genovese ($17.99) arrived with surprising speed. The toppings of crumbled Italian sausage, diced fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and provolone were spread judiciously so as to achieve a perfect balance of flavors, with threads of fresh basil adding a fresh, grassy note. The blistered crust was thin but not cracker-crunchy; the exterior was crisp enough to hold up to the toppings, while the interior provided good chewiness. All in all, a very good pie. You wont find trendy toppings such as prosciutto figs or arugula offered at Pinos, but the basic pizza foundation would be hard to improve on. Cups of pasta fagioli came next, the well-seasoned broth thick with vegetables and white beans. The soup tasted so fresh and the ditalini pasta still had bite to it, which indicated that the pot had not been sitting around simmering all day. Buttery gar lic knots came with the soup; I thought they could have used a bit more garlic. For entres, Pinos offers chicken and veal in the four standard styles Parmigiana, Marsala, Francese and piccata along with a few shrimp and tilapia dishes, jumbo ravioli, straight noodles and the usual assortment of baked entrees such as lasagna, manicotti and ziti. The eggplant Parmigiana ($9.99 early bird, $13.50 regular) was a model of restraint. Oftentimes the breading and the mozzarella can weigh down this dish, especially if the breadcrumbs absorb too much oil when the eggplant is fried. With thin disks of eggplant just dusted with breading, an easy touch with the cheese and mere splashes of sweet velvety tomato sauce, this dish seemed impossibly light. I also liked that I could substitute garlicky steamed broccoli for the usual side of pasta that comes with eggplant Parm (who needs the extra carbs?). My companion chose the linguine with clams ($9.99 early bird, $14 regular) with white sauce. The nest of noodles was heaped with tender bits of shellfish in a tangy white wine sauce redolent of garlic and parsley. The linguine was cooked perfectly, with just enough bite left to avoid limp noodle syndrome. A pinch of salt was all that was needed to punch up the flavor a bit. Rarely do I order dessert when dining on my own, as it just seems like too much of a good thing after a hearty meal. It was a relief, then, to be served a two-bite cannoli and two wee squares of cheesecake instead of the usual fullsize confections. They provided just the right note of sweetness to end a meal without making us feel the regret of overindulgence. Now that we have found Pinos, and discovered what it has to offer, we hope others will make the extra effort to seek it out, too. Pinos might be out of sight, but it shouldnt be out of mind.

BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentRhett Josey is perhaps one of Naples most dapper, kindhearted designers. His post at Clive Daniel Home has afforded him the opportunity to meet a host of folks, and his native Southern charm only adds to the experience of working with him. But Mr. Joseys gentlemanly demeanor is only part of the story. Among his fondest memories is his internship at Parish Hadley while attending the New York School of Interior Design, which formed the foundation of his design principles. The client is the one who will be living in the home, not the designer was the directive on all projects, he recalls about his days at Parish Hadley. To this day, he always asks how adults, children and even pets will be interacting in the spaces so that he can best serve the clients needs. The relationship between a designer and client is crucial to the project, he says. A client must trust the designer and vice versa, so there is a collaboration of ideas and ways to implement them. LUXE sat down with Mr. Josey to get the skinny on what he thinks and feels about design today. Q: We cant wait to hear about your favorite design trend. A: White on case goods, which are wood pieces, as well as upholstery. White is a clean complement to the weathered woods and gray tones that are increasingly popular. I also am glad to see clean, sharp lines rather than ornately carved, overly decorated pieces. Q: You must also have a favorite passing trend. What would that be? A: Best design trend that is passing is the Tuscan look. Our philosophy at Clive Daniel Home is to de-Tuscanize Naples. Q: Please share with us what youre reading. A: My favorite design books are from designers themselves, including Thomas Pheasant, Alexandra Hampton, Martin Lawrence Bullard and Aerin Lauder. I also love Dominique Brownings The Well Lived Life. Q: Other than yourself, who would you most like to design your home? A: Wilfredo Emanuel of Clive Daniel Home. Willy is where design and fashion intersect. Q: What is your dream home design? A: The decor of my home is not one style, but a layering of different styles and eras. I think nothing of having a chunky Lucite modern coffee table in the same room as a 200-year-old yew wood chest. Really inviting upholstered pieces with strong editorial shapes also are included in my repertoire. Q: What is your most challenging project? A: A home on Harbor Island in North Eleuthera Islands, Bahamas. Everything had to come in by barge and be hauled to the project site. The logistics were the hardest, but so was designing for the home to withstand hurricane-force winds In the end, everything was worth it, because the homeowner was thrilled and the home is still standing today. Q: What is your advice for the homeowner who must go it alone without the help of an interior designer? A: Visit local fabric shops and paint stores. These shops have a wealth of tradesmen they have found to be professional and honest everything from painters, carpenters and upholsterers. When it comes to inspiration, I think the app Houzz is one of the greatest sites to see amazing design projects by individuals as well as professionals. You can source the items used throughout the projects just by tapping on them. Keep a checklist of items youre drawn toward. It could be the color, the layout or just the energy a room exudes. Revisit the checklist, and usually you will notice a pattern of similarities that will help define your style.

BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhen Reed Design Builds Wanda Pfeiffer relocated from Floridas east coast, it wasnt long before she began making a name for herself in Naples. This registered interior designer and adjunct instructor in design education has received the ALA Lighting Specialist certification from the American Lighting Society, among numerous accolades. So when she was tapped to tackle a mammoth bathroom makeover, Ms. Pfeiffer was up to the challenge. Ms. Pfeiffer tamed this Bonita Bay monstrosity using a variety of tricks she has mastered in her 20 years of design experience, beginning with what she says got her vote for the best part of the transformation. My favorite part of the remodel is the curved glass in the shower area the 8-foot panes of glass created a radius effect, and the most striking difference is the feeling of open space we created with removal of the steam shower and oversized tub, she says. The space feels much more spacious and the views are the dominant feature as intended. Ms. Pfeiffers clients were more than ready to have a dream master bathroom. They spent years compromising with aging fixtures and a dated design. They wanted a WOW result, as she puts it. Priorities included removal of the steam shower and oversized tub, replacing them with a new corner whirlpool tub to optimize the featured water view. Ms. Pfeiffer also enlarged the shower area and designed additional storage in the vanity area, including in both closets. The existing glass block in the shower area was failing, causing water leakage and damage to the surrounding area, and our client wanted privacy in the shower, but also wanted natural light and visibility to the outdoors, Ms. Pfeiffer says. The remodel was complete revamping of the space, removing all existing cabinetry, fixtures, lighting and closet units, and the only feature retained was the existing marble floor. One major challenge she faced was the removal of the existing glass block wall and repair to the surrounding areas. It required engineering of a new configuration and removal of an existing bump-out in the wall to create a more seamless interior to the shower. We also installed a reflective plate glass panel, frosted to 60 inches above the floor for privacy, with clear glass above for viewing to the outdoors, Ms. Pfeiffer says. Reflective glass features prevent outside viewers from seeing into the shower space. Judging by the before and after shots, the client was sufficiently wowed. The new corner tub affords the bather beautiful views of the waterway while the spacious shower accommodates two shower areas and a convenience bench. They love the dark richness of the cabinetry, trendy 12-by-24 tile layout in the shower and the crushed glass accent tile, Ms. Pfeiffer says. Blown-glass light fixtures provide a beautiful sparkle to the space, and they can just relax in the corner whirlpool tub and watch the world go by. Ms. Pfeiffers tips for a stress-less makeover: 1. To borrow an old carpenters saying, Design twice, build once. Its all in the planning. Anticipa ting the outcome down to every detail during the design phase helps eliminate emergency situations during the build process, which can be costly and frustrating. 2. Check references and select professionals for all phases of the project. Hands-on project management is critical to the success of the project. If the homeowner doesnt have the time or construction experience to supervise and quality-check the trades work, hire a firm that provides this service. 3. Follow your heart. Dont select materials or approve designs that are based on current trends or someone elses differing vision of your space. You should love everything about your new remodel project. This ensures that it will bring you joy over the long term.

BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentJoannie Matters love of furniture and the furniture business began more than three decades ago. Working in a small furniture store in Fort Myers, she discovered the joy of working with customers especially inspiring them with products that enhanced their homes. Earlier this year, Ms. Matter achieved a lifelong dream of owning her own furniture store: Home Decor by Joannie. The store opened in the Pavilion Shoppes a wise choice given the resurgence of interesting businesses in the recently revived shopping center in North Naples. Ms. Matter has made sure her store is a happy place, filled with vignettes that reflect a luxurious but unpretentious bundling of key elements for every room in the house. I love the contemporary coastal look that brings color and the warmth of the coastal feeling together, she says. Weve been in a very neutral pallet look for a long time, and most people are ready for some bolder color and textures to add a little spark to their homes. The expansive space is both spacious and welcoming. There is no feeling of being intimidated, and while the items Ms. Matter features are of the highest quality, there are affordable options for regular folks any of the furnishings would fit right into Port Royal, but you dont have to have a Port Royal home to shop here. Lots of blues and neutrals, greens and shiny objects are everywhere, with classic suggestions on what to purchase together for a total design concept. One of her go-to design tricks is to keep larger pieces of furniture neutral and add color through artwork, wall decor, pillows, accent chairs and rugs. You can change an entire room with a few items, she says.

Left: T wo dining areas allow for noshing, one for entertaining and this one for a quiet breakfast. On the co ver: The marriage of open space and art creates a home for Margit and Manfred Heiss. BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWHEN THE MOTHER-DAUGHTER TEAM OF GALLERY ON FIFTH owners Olga and Leeza Arkhangelskaya met painter Margit Heiss and her husband, Manfred, it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship and a partnership in art. Stepping into the Heiss familys North Naples home, its easy to see why. The couple travel extensively and have collected meaningful objects that conjure fond memories and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. But its the art most of it by Mrs. Heiss that wows the Arkhangelskayas. Mrs. Heiss, who originally wasnt thinking of becoming a professional artist, developed her vibrant expressionistic style when the couple lived in South Africa and Brazil, where she took painting classes and was inspired by working with other artists. We traveled across Brazil, in the Amazon jungle, and enjoyed the Sao Paolo vibrant lifestyle, and I was very inspired by the dress and scenic impressions, she says. With a truly modern style, clean lines and exuberant splashes of artful color, the welcoming home of the Heiss family attests to the art of good living. But their conversation pieces have a much further reach than the art Mrs. Heiss has created and that the couple has purchased. We traveled across Brazil, in the Amazon jungle, and enjoyed the Sao Paolo vibrant lifestyle, and I was very inspired by the dress and scenic impressions.

COVER STORYWe have traveled a lot in our life, and we wanted our home to reflect that, Mrs. Heiss says. And of the items the Heisses have acquired in their travels, perhaps none is as dramatic or heartfelt as the wooden hippo that graces the kitchen. The carved hippo made the trip back to the U.S. from Africa with the couple after Mr. Heiss traded the clothes on his back literally for the piece. The hippo, which is from Victoria Falls, exhibits the Heisses passion for art. Because the artisan had no use for money, Mr. Heiss bartered with the only item the artist would accept: clothing. I had to trade two suits and two nice shirts and jeans for the hippo, he says. Another fun assemblage in the Heiss house is their collection of sand from all over the world. Mrs. Heiss has arranged dozens of bottles of sand a rainbow of colors from white, sugary sand to black sand on a windowsill at the end of a long hallway. The arrangement often draws people down the hallway, their curiosity piqued to discover where the sand came from, as each bottle is labeled with its origin. In so many homes where art is the central focus, there is so much art and so many accessories that it can be challenging to appreciate the home itself. Not so with the Heiss residence. The openness of the architectural design and placement of bright backdrops allow people who walk through the front door to appreciate the many facets that make REFLECTIONFrom page 10 Artwork is as carefully placed in the hallways as in the homes main living areas.TIM GIBBONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe modern furnishings allow the art to take center stage, even in unexpected places such as the entryway to the bedroom. www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY12 LUXE LIVING MAY 2014 AFK AFFORDABLE FLOORING & KITCHENS239-4-FLOORS afknaples.com 2700 Immokalee Road, #14 (in the Uptown Plaza near Sams Club)Affordable Luxury!
it special. And special things, such as a massive, sliding, mirrored door that separates the kitchen from the dining area, are unique and lend to gracious entertaining. Mutual admirationMrs. Heiss work came to the attention of Olga and Leeza Arkhangelskaya in December 2012 and has been part of their Gallery on Fifth ever since. The mother-daughter duo was instrumental in bringing Mrs. Heiss art to market in the first place, and they nurtured her work along the way. The friends have a certain symbiosis when it comes to the gallery and placing art in homes. Many of the people visiting the gallery in Mercato are looking for modern, contemporary style in art and their living spaces, and because the Arkhangelskayas understand Mrs. Heiss art so well, they often consult with new buyers on what to choose and where to place the art. In the case of the Heiss house, the Arkhangelskayas love the art-placement choices the Heisses made. Theirs is a refined taste, and we didnt need to interfere with their decorating process, Leeza Arkhangelskaya says. The Heiss house is a pure example of how the art animates the home, brings joy and unique character. So many homeowners fall victim to decorators who may select pieces of questionable artistic value, but that match the furniture. But a home like Margits and Manfreds reflects the owners personality, worldly experience, sophistication and wit. With light streaming from the many windows into the European-inspired home, the artwork also showcases an obvious love of animals the couple has a cat from Brazil and a Rhodesian ridgeback from Africa. Members of an art club in the neighborhood kept asking Mrs. Heiss, Where can I buy your art?, leading the Arkhangelskayas to begin representing Mrs. Heiss at their gallery. Customers who love Margits paintings appreciate the energetic colors, animals and birds, and there is nothing like her paintings in the U.S., known as the Blue Rider style that was created in 1910, Olga Arkhangelskaya says. Margit has a unique ability to combine strong, abstract lines with soft animal imagery, which make her colorful works modern, but with a touch of familiar animal forms. This is why the public reacts so positively to her art its contemporary, but not hard or abstract.How Naples became homeManfred Heiss has worked all over the world for such renowned companies as BMW in its Munich headquarters. He says after traveling the world, he didnt want to go back to an office, and his wife fell in love with creating art. Mr. Heiss is now a management consultant based in the U.S. Originally from Germany, the Heisses heard about Naples from a friend and relocated here 14 years ago, when Mr. Heiss surprised his wife with the property.Basically, we were looking for a place where the weather was stable and sunny, Mrs. Weiss recalls. He came back to Germany after purchasing the property, and I said, What? Where are we going? She admits to being shocked at the moment, but she soon began designing their dream home with an architect. The process took more than eight months to get the details the way they wanted. We havent seen the beach in a while, Mr. Heiss jokes. I dont want to go anywhere else. Mr. and Mrs. Heiss wanted an open space, to be able to see from the kitchen to the back of the house with no great room or separate dining room. Add the array of art and much homage to animals, and the result is a home thats made for gatherings, where theres no sense of isolation from the group. Mrs. Heiss does most of her painting at home. She often sits for days drafting in pencil before deciding on color combinations and shapes. You dont start with colors, you start with pencil-drafting things, with straight lines and impressionistic style, and then decide on color combinations and shapes, she says. Part of the kinship between the Heisses and Arkhangelskayas is a love of educating people about art. Gallery on Fifth showcases artists who have attended some of the worlds most prestigious art academies, but the venue also hosts events that inspire learning. Some of the shows have included art from the Socialist Realist era from Soviet Ukraine, the Rescued from the Flames exhibition, and the I Put a Spell on You exhibition of art depicting old Russian traditions and village life. Gallery on Fifth also has cooperative relationships with Opera Naples and ArtisNaples, bringing opera and classical-music performances to the gallery. Everything that we do is to enrich the cultural life of our community, Leeza Arkhangelskaya says. Kathleen Farrell contributed to this story.
