The city of Naples gifted the group 20-plus acres along the Gordon River downtown and $7.5 million toward the parks construction. The group has raised almost $6 million from private donations, including that of lead patrons Jay and Patty Baker, and is drawing closer to the $17 million estimate for the parks construction. Prelude to a Park Two a follow-up to last years similar and successful affair takes place at Riverside Circle, the future site of Baker Park, under the stars and a full moon the first night and what organizers hope will be clear skies from 4-9 p.m. the following day.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 19-25, 2015 COMMENTARY Mouthing offWhen a capable New York Times writer and book author, the Washington, D.C.based Eric Lichtblau, failed to include crucial details in a recent story (Surviving the Nazis, only to be jailed by America, Feb. 7), I decided to complain to the Great Gray Lady. It was a first for me, and lots of fun. More importantly, though, I decided to tell Florida Weekly readers what happened in the months immediately following the liberation of the Jews and the German surrender in World War II, 70 years ago, on May 7, 1945. Two Army privates helped save the lives of hundreds of Displaced Persons neglected and mistreated by American forces at St. Ottilien, a monastery turned hospital for German troops and later for concentration camp survivors, located about 30 miles southwest of Dachau. As whistleblowers, their actions helped improve the conditions of thousands of other D.P.s in Europe, many of whom were rounded up and put behind barbed wire without sufficient clothing, medicine or even food, by Americans. That history is documented in John Michalczyks 1997 film, narrated by Studs Terkel: Displaced: Miracle at St. Ottilien. The film is based on the memoir of one of those men, Robert L. Hilliard, whose remarkable book, Surviving the Americans: The Continued Struggle of the Jews After Liberation, appeared the year before. The miracle stemmed directly from the actions of Hilliard, then 19 and a combat-wounded survivor of the Battle of the Bulge from New York City, and Pfc. E. Edward Herman, then 24, a Philadelphian who died in 2007 in West Palm Beach. (Dr. Hilliard, a professor emeritus from Emerson College in Boston and a novelist and playwright, continues to work from his home on Sanibel Island. He is now 89.) They disobeyed orders. They stole Army food. In what may be the first and last deal of its kind, Herman, a selfdescribed wheeler-dealer who later became an international financier, bought out a PX (a post exchange store with comfort goods for G.I.s). He raised the money by selling cigarettes, lingerie and perfume on both sides of the German-French border. Then they snuck their life-saving largesse in to the desperately ill D.P.s at St. Ottilien, with the help of an extraordinary doctor and camp survivor now mostly lost to history, Zalmen Grinberg past the military police and eventually past the barbed-wire perimeters that characterized many D.P. camps in the months following VE day. But most importantly, Hilliard and Herman blew the whistle that helped alert President Harry Truman and Earl Harrison. Then dean of the University of Pennsylv ania Law School, Harrison accepted Trumans request to investigate the claims of serious abuse of the Jews by Americans. To mouth off, the two soldiers printed about 1,000 copies of a letter on the base newspaper press where Hilliard had been made editor of the nd Wing Eagle. Those letters helped change everything. With the help of other G.I.s who agreed to post copies under their own names, Herman and Hilliard managed to slip the letter past Army censors. They mailed it to individuals, churches, synagogues and community centers across the country. In Hilliards purple prose, as he characterizes his writing of the time, they accused the Americans of genocide by neglect a reality based on their own observations and later confirmed by historians. They asked for immediate shipments of anything people could gather: food, clothing and medicine, in particular. Somehow, the letter reached President Trumans desk. And it worked, at least for some for those who had not died while subsisting on the 600 to 700-calorie-per-day diets the Americans provided survivors, at first. When the president dispatched Harrison in the summer of 1945, the investigator first visited Hilliards mother before traveling overseas. At her invitation and sitting in her living room, he read her sons private letters home, which Mrs. Hilliard had kept, detailing what the private had seen. Then Harrison journeyed to Europe, visiting many camps with Army Capt. Abraham Klausner, a chaplain and rabbi who ministered to the people at St. Ottilien. In August, Harrison delivered a deeply unflattering portrait of American behavior toward D.P.s to the president. On Sept. 30, 1945, The New York Times carried this headline on page 1: President Orders Eisenhower To End New Abuse Of Jews. He acts on Harrison report, which likens our treatment to that of Nazis. Finally in November, the first of about 1,200 packages began to arrive at St. Ottilien, many weighing 50 pounds or more. They had been held on the docks in New York or in Army warehouses until Truman ordered Eisenhower to act, the bounty of compassionate Americans who had responded. Hilliard and Herman, meanwhile, were ridiculed by some G.I.s and called traitors. They were also threatened with transfer to the Aleutian Islands by an Army colonel dispatched from Gen. Eisenhower. He told the men to write no more such letters. In the end, the two privates had not only saved countless lives by mouthing off at St. Ottilien, but they saved us from ourselves. The nuances in this history, left out of The New York Times report, are clarion notes in an American symphony that trumpet this singular truth: Americans are obligated to behave with humanitarian compassion toward any victims of genocide, both in peace and war. And when our leaders fail in that regard, the best of us sometimes seemingly powerless individuals who decide to stick their necks out, as Hilliard put it in a recent public appearance may not fail. Such moral courage, alone, justifies and completes acts of bravery and sacrifice on the battlefields of our history. w A t y t c roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 19-25, 2015 OPINION rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly The return of evilWhere is Chris Kyle when you need him? The late hero of the movie American Sniper made no apology for killing as many members of al-Qaida in Iraq, the precursor of ISIS, as he could get in his rifle sights. After a captured Jordanian pilot was burned alive, who would object to Kyle, or any other American sniper, shooting down these murderous fanatics if he could get access to them? And who would quibble with Kyles characterization of these people as savages? Part of what the left finds objectionable about Kyle is his unshakable moral certainty. But in light of ISISs spectacular advertisements of its own cruelty, Kyles point of view holds up very well. The ISIS beheadings last summer marked the return of the rhetoric of evil, because no other word will quite suffice for beheadings, crucifixions and, now, an immolation. Violent extremism, the administrations phrase of choice, obviously doesnt capture it. You can pile on the adjectives hideous, savage, heinous and still not get at the boundless malevolence of caging a man and burning him alive. In his first statement after the horrifying news of the pilots fate, President Barack Obama said the act reinforced the viciousness and barbarity of ISIS, which he repeated must be what else? degraded and ultimately defeated. He added that whatever ideology theyre operating off of, its bankrupt. Argentina is bankrupt. Radio Shack is bankrupt. ISIS is evil. Obama has used the word evil about ISIS on other occasions, although obviously not as often as his predecessor. George W. Bush made unapologetic use of the word and caught hell for it. On the left, it became a given that it spoke to his manifest unsuitability for the presidency. Commentator Bruce Bartlett unburdened himself of this deep thought: Bush believes the Islamic radicals cant be persuaded, that theyre extremists, driven by a dark vision. He understands them, because hes just like them. Yeah, they were exactly the same except that one unhesitatingly ordered the hijacking of civilian aircraft to crash into skyscrapers, and the other unhesitatingly described that act of mass murder as evil. What is it about the word evil that so offends the left? It smacks of a religious worldview that makes secularists uncomfortable. It sets up a natural opposition between good and evil that is altogether too confident in our own virtue for the left. It doesnt necessarily entail any particular policy response, but it tilts toward a total commitment to fighting the enemy, since a campaign to degrade evil feels inherently inadequate. If Bush was ill-served at times by his stubbornness and certainty, its always worth remembering that Democrats were perfectly content to lose to alQaida in Iraq when Bush was ordering the surge in 2007, and Obamas insistence on pulling out of Iraq entirely was a priceless boon to ISIS. We were supposed to be beyond good versus evil, although the other side didnt get the memo and never left the field. Its almost as if the greatest trick evil ever played was persuading the left not to call it by its proper name. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. GUEST OPINION Make yourself a pest in the fight against invasive species BY BRIAN PELCThe Nature ConservancyFloridas wonderful climate draws in millions of visitors each year, helping to drive the health of our economy. Unfortunately, that same climate is also hospitable to visitors of a different kind: invasive species that cause more of a crisis here than anywhere else in the continental United States. Unwanted plants and animals do much more than spoil a lush green lawn or leave irritating bite marks on those bare footing it in the park. About 1 percent of the thousands of unwanted species brought into Florida have the ability to thrive and spread in the last great places where endangered animals make homes and where humans seek refuge from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Native plants and animals have a difficult time competing against these foreign organisms in our natural lands, and some rare species can be pushed out completely. While many friends of mine question whether they can make a difference in protecting Florida, exotic invasive species is an issue that desperately needs the attention. If we focus on the handful of plants and animals that pose the greatest threat, every homeowner and renter, garden club member and outdoor enthusiast has the chance to help save our natural spaces by taking control of their own, small piece of the planet. In honor of Invasive Species Awareness Week (Feb. 22-28), here are some top tips from The Nature Conservancy to fight damaging invaders: Dont harbor backyard invaders. Heavenly bamboo and Mexican petunia might sound nice, but plants like these can overrun, crowd out and strangle life from native Florida plants. Dont let it loose. Dont release aquarium fish and plants, live bait or other exotic animals into the wild. Dont buy it. Acquiring invasive reptiles such as Burmese or African rock pythons as pets is prohibited in Florida. Wash your boat and your boots. Clean your boat thoroughly after an outing on the water to remove invasive stowaways. Clean your boots after every hike to get rid of hitchhiking weed seeds. Dont pack a pest when traveling, and dont move firewood. Fruits and vegetables, plants, insects and animals can carry potentially devastating forest pests or become invasive themselves, and firewood can harbor forest pests. Get involved. Volunteer at your local park, refuge or other wildlife area or with your local Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area to help remove invasive species.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 19-25, 2015 ROOTED IN NAPLESFender bender drives home the state of seasonal trafficDriving around Southwest Florida lately has been fraught with peril. Two weeks ago I ended a 16-yearlong accident-free streak by getting rear-ended in Fort Myers. Like everyone else, Ive spent the last few weeks artfully dodging traffic conflicts on arguably the worst intersection in Naples, only to head north 25 miles to get smacked. Aside from my frustration that my new car only made it three weeks on the road before earning its first (and hopefully only) battle scar, the process of reporting, claiming and repairing was relatively painless. Its a circumstance that forced me to consider the amount of practice traffic officers, insurance specialists and body-shop repairmen must have at processing totally avoidable fender benders. If anything, the reporting officer seemed bored, and I dont blame him. It was a dumb situation with no mitigating factors or even a good story. There was no dispute about who did what. No airbags popped, no ambulance was called. I stopped at a traffic light and was hit from behind, probably at a speed less than 15 mph. In Collier County, the traffic situation recently became so intense the sheriffs office stationed signs along Immokalee Road telling drivers approaching I-75 that they were in a high-crash zone. Anybody who frequents that side of town kn ows there are no high-speed, high-risk configurations along any stretch of Immokalee Road, only slow-speed congestion and distracted drivers. I suspect navigation systems are to blame for a lot of this nonsense and wonder with what degree of ignorance tourists get in their cars and drive without any earthly idea where their ultimate destination lies. The sudden darts across three lanes of traffic to an on-ramp, a chronic allergy to u-turns, lane straddling and brainless rear-endings at traffic lights all point to people who are figuring it out as they go along. Predictably, fender benders rose 75 percent between July 2014 and January 2015, ticking up steadily each month from 166 to 291. By Feb. 11, when I received the numbers, the CCSO had already reported 79 rearend crashes to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles for the month and that number did not include crash reports that were open and pending. Of course, Ill acknowledge some mitigating factors, but only because they underscore my larger point: There are too many people on roads that are poorly planned. People must, MUST, stop fooling around behind the wheel and start paying strict attention while traveling on unfamiliar roads. As irritating as our trafficlight choreography can be, the truth is that signage and directional indicators in town are actually very clear. City planners were, at the very least, capable of slowing us down enough to keep us (mostly) from killing each other. These minor accidents happen to everyone who lives here at some point, but the truth is we all know people who have died avoidable deaths here in Southwest Florida because someone wasnt paying attention. A cyclist taken out here, a head-on collision on I-75 there. Try telling the responding officer at a fatal accident scene that Siri only gave you 25 feet to cut off three lanes. Despite my frustrations about tourist season in general, I strongly urge vacationers to enjoy Naples. We work really hard to make it an enjoyable destination. As an upscale resort town, the high level of customer service and quality of experience people find here does not just happen: Most residents are in some way engaged in creating a paradise for our visitors and many of them are functioning at the top of their profession. We dont even require that you be a good guest: Just give us your money in return and dont kill us. Our loved ones use these roads to go about their daily business. We live here, work here and rear our children here. It would be nice to see May with our lives and property intact. Lindsey Nesmith has been writing some version of this weeks column in her head for many years and is happy to finally get it off her chest. Additionally, shed really like more people to recognize that incoming traffic at shopping centers does not usually have a stop sign; therefore, drivers on their way in SHOULD NOT STOP, which only serves to create back-ups on the main road. lindseyNESMITHlnesmith@floridaweekly.com VISIT OUR OPEN HOUSES SUNDAYS 1-4 PMCall today for a complimentary tour and learn more about membership at Wyndemere.

Our Regional Trauma Care System is an Asset to AllResidents of Collier and South Lee counties are receiving excellent, lifesaving careWhen a traumatic injury occurs, getting help fast from a proven team of first responders and medical experts means everything. Just ask Eli Smith. The Marco Island teen was riding a Jet Ski a few summers ago when an accident left him clinging to life in the water. Within minutes, first responders were on scene to transport him by helicopter to the trauma center at Lee Memorial Hospital. At the hospital, a team of traumatrained surgeons, specialists and staff were ready to administer critical care. Impact from the accident had badly injured his face and head. Fluid was leaking through his skull fracture and air was building up around his brain. He was at risk of infection and even death. Surgeons performed a twohour procedure to repair the damage and, finally, Eli woke up surrounded by family, friends and nurses. Today, he credits the trauma center for saving his life. A collaborative system Eli is just one of thousands of patients who are alive today thanks to our regional trauma care system. Since 1994, this system has served more than 35,000 patients with life-threatening and life-changing injuries. Our regional system is the product of years of careful planning and collaboration between healthcare professionals, first responders and local officials in Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties. Under our regional system, patients who are severely injured are quickly transported by helicopter or ambulance to Lee Memorial, where a highly skilled trauma team of five surgeons and 20 medical specialists are available around the clock. Trauma patients from Collier or southern Lee counties can also be taken to two hospitals in Naples for immediate stabilization. Working to save lives This regional coordination ensures that patients throughout our fivecounty area receive expert care in that critical golden hour when they need it most. On behalf of Eli and all the other patients we have served over the years, we are proud of our regional trauma care system. It is serving Southwest Florida well and saving lives. No one ever expects to suffer a traumatic injury. But its reassuring to know that, thanks to the system we have built together, a dedicated team of trauma experts and exceptional care are just minutes away, should we ever need them.

County will match up to $600,000 to complete Freedom MemorialIn an effort to finish the Freedom Memorial on Golden Gate Parkway, Collier County commissioners have unanimously agreed to match donations of up to $600,000 to meet the Freedom Memorial Foundations fundraising goal of $1.2 million. This is a very important step forward for us, says Naples Mayor John Sorey. The commissions vote affirms community support for the Freedom Memorial and should help assure donors that the job will finally get done. Plans for the memorial began in 2004, and it was originally planned to occupy a space at the Collier County Government Center. It is intended to honor service people who died in combat and first responders to the World Trade Center and Pentagon during the 9/11 attacks. Most of the money will contribute to the completion of a granite memorial envisioned in the original design. The granite, stone and water installation will be a 14-by40-foot American flag anchored on a base resembling the United States. Behind the memorial will be a reflection pool and three benches to represent the three attack sites on 9/11. The memorial will be a cornerstone of Fred W. Coyle Freedom Park, which is east of Goodlette-Frank Road at the northern end of the new Gordon River Greenway. The entire cost for the memorial is estimated to be $1.8 million. The project broke ground in 2009 and encountered obstacles to its completion that have now been resolved, such as the recession and the inability to provide tax-deductible status to donors. Park planners are asking for assistance to push the project toward completion. Members of the public can purchase engraved memorial pavers for $100 and $300, make donations to the Freedom Memorial Foundation or purchase tickets to the foundations Remember, Respect, Honor Forever! event taking place Friday, Feb. 20, at the Hilton Naples. Tickets are $250 or $500. Guests will enjoy cocktail hour and dinner from Shulas Steakhouse. Donors who contribute $1,000 or more will have their names engraved on plaques at the memorial; those who contribute $100,000 will receive the Hero designation.For more information or to purchase tickets or make a donation, call 5967959 or visit freedommemorialfoundationofnaples. com. A rendering of how the completed Freedom Memorial will looks as a cornerstone of Fred W. Coyle Freedom Park on Golden Gate Parkway.

Mrs. Sorey also promises a surprise the kids are going to flip out about and an evening of kid-friendly fun under a full moon. Admission is free. Baker Park is most importantly a peoples park, Ms. Sorey says, and was conceptualized and planned with a high level of community involvement. Its difficult to name a construction date, but many components of the park are in flux and it could still be about two years before crews break ground. Some items of the original master plan have changed or been removed, but planners are working hard to replace them so the park closely resembles the publics vision. Its a moving target, Mrs. Sorey says. When you build a house, you put things in and take things out. What it is now is probably not what its going to be in the end. Were just looking forward to building it.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA20 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 19-25, 2015 Weird news you can useIt turns out that a person having a heart attack is usually safer to be in an ambulance headed to a hospital than to already be a patient in a hospital, according to a study by University of North Carolina researchers. It takes longer, on average, for nonER hospital staff to comply with hospital protocols in ordering and evaluating tests (nearly three hours, according to the study) than it does for ER (and ambulance) staff, who treat every case of cardiac symptoms as life-threatening. Overall, according to a February Wall Street Journal report, the study found the mortality rate for heartattack victims treated in emergency rooms is 4 percent, compared to 40 percent for patients already admitted for other reasons and then suffering heart attacks.The continuing crisis Uh-Oh: The man hospitalized in fair condition in January after being rammed from behind by a car while on his bicycle happened to be Darryl Isaacs, 50, one of the most ubiquitously advertising personalinjury lawyers in Louisville, Ky. Isaacs calls himself the Heavy Hitter and the Kentucky Hammer for his aggressiveness on behalf of, among other clients, victims of traffic collisions. The (soon-to-be-poorer) driver told police the sun got in his eyes. Elephants in Love: (1) India TV reported in January that a wild male elephant from an adjoining sanctuary had broken into the Nandan Kanan zoo in Odisha, wildly besotted with a female, Heera. The male cast aside two other females trying to protect Heera and mated with her. The male lingered overnight until zookeepers could shoo him away. (2) A frisky male elephant crushed four cars in 10 days in January at Thailands Khao Yai National Park the result, said a park veterinarian, of the stress of the mating season. (Only the last of the four cars was occupied, but no injuries were serious.) While nearly all Americans enjoy low gasoline prices, residents of sea-locked Alaskan towns (Barrow, Kotzebue, Nome, Ketchikan) have continued to pay their same hefty prices ($7 a gallon, according to one January report on Alaska Dispatch News). Though the price in Anchorage and Fairbanks resembles that in the rest of America, unconnected towns can be supplied only during a four-month breather from icy sea conditions and thus received their final winter shipments last summer. The price the supplier was forced to pay then dictates pump prices until around May or June. The ever-valuable InternetIn January, Captain Mercedes, a registered user of the Reddit.com social media site, announced he had compiled a data file cataloguing every bowel movement he had in 2014 and was offering the file to other users to design hypotheses and visual representations of the data in ways that might improve his relationship with his alimentary canal. According to the data-analysis website FiveThirtyEight.com, the researcher used the standard Bristol stool scale (seven categories of excreta, by shape and consistency) and produced interesting hypotheses in the ensuing Reddit conversation. Suspicions confirmed (1) A January examination of New York City records through NYC Open Data found that the five most common first names of taxicab drivers licensed by the city are five variations in the spelling of the name Mohammed. (2) The last McDonalds burger to be sold in Iceland before the chain abandoned the country in 2009 has been on open display at the National Museum of Iceland and was recently moved to the Bus Hostel in Reykjavik, still in good condition, according to the hostel manager. Some people have even stolen some of the fries. Harvard University medical researcher Mark Shrime documented recently how easily made-up research can wind up in reputable-sounding academic journals by submitting an article composed by random-generating text software, supposedly about the surgical and neoplastic role of cacao extract in breakfast cereals (and authored by Pinkerton A. LeBrain and Orson Welles). Of 37 journals, 17 quickly accepted it, some feigning actually having read it, with the only catch being that Shrime would have to pay a standard $500 fee for publication. Shrime warned that some of the journals have titles dangerously close to highly respected journals and cautions journalist (and reader) skepticism. Wait, what?Ms. Meng Wang filed a lawsuit recently in New York City against Gildan Outerwear over her disappointment with Kushyfoot Shaping Tights. In television ads, Wang wrote, a young model sashays down a city street with her eyes dreamily closed and moans and utters highly sexually charged phrases including Thats the spot and so good ... passersby (stop) in their tracks to look at her with mouths agape. Wang said the ad clearly implies that the tights produce an orgasmic sensation of some sort, wrote Gothamist.com, but that she, herself, has come up empty. Cliches come to lifeMargaretta Evans, 63, finally reported her missing son to the Myrtle Beach (South Carolina) Police Department in January. She said Jason Callahan, who would be 38, had been missing since early June of 1995 when he left home to follow the Grateful Dead on tour in California and Illinois. Riccardo Pacifici, described as the head of Romes Jewish community, was accidentally trapped while visiting the Auschwitz prison death camp in January on Holocaust Remembrance Day, after staff had departed. He crawled out through a window, provoking the New York magazine headline, Polish Police Detained a Jewish Leader Trying to Escape Auschwitz.

The Boxcar Exhibits trip to Marco is made possible through a partnership between the Cultural Alliance of Marco Island and Goodland and the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida, which owns the traveling exhibit. Docents from the Holocaust museum will be on hand to discuss the exhibit with visitors from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 19 and 26. Survivors of the Holocaust will speak about their experiences from 2-3 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 26, in the auditorium at the Marco museum. Accompanying the boxcar are 19 oil paintings of Irena Sendler and her work during the World War II. The paintings by Bill Farnsworth were used to illustrate his book, Irena Sendler and the Children of the Warsaw Ghetto, and then were donated to the Holocaust Museum & Education Center. Known as the female Oskar Schindler, the Polishborn Ms. Sendler, who died in 2008 at the age of 98, is credited with having saved some 2,500 Jewish children at great risk to her own personal safety.

Call 642-1440 or visit colliermuseums.com.Also on MarcoIn conjunction with The Boxcar Exhibit, the Marco Island Historical Museum presents a free screening of the award-winning documentary Paper Clips at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 19. A story of love, t olerance and understanding, the film follows a group of middle school students in Whitwell, Tenn., who as part of their study of the Holocaust, attempt to collect 6 million paper clips, one for every Jew killed by the Nazis in World War II. The students ultimately collected more than 25 million paperclips. Also on Marco, The Marco Players are staging The Interview through March 1 at The Marco Players Theater in the Marco Town Center Mall. Performances are at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. An additional performance takes place at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 23, at the Marco Island Center for the Arts. The play by Peter Swet tells the story of an aging Jewish tailor in a run-down shop who receives a visit from a workaholic investigator determined to find out the reasons the old man wants to increase the value of his life insurance policy. Reluctant and guarded at first, the tailor becomes more agitated under the relentless questioning. As buried truths come out, so do emotional memories about his past life. The play stars Victor Caroli as the tailor and Greg Madera as the investigator. Jim Corsica directs. For tickets or more information, call The Marco Players at 642-7270 or visit themarcoplayers. com.

There are two types the dry type, which is managed with vitamins, and the wet type, which is treated with injections into the eye. For those of you with the wet type, did you ever wonder why your retina specialist keeps asking you to come back in a month for your next injection? Its because the medication that is being injected (Avastin, Lucentis or Eylea) only lasts for about a month in the eye. But dont you wish there was another option instead of getting a needle into the eye every month or so? Something that could improve your vision and that didnt hurt or cause red eyes? It turns out that something actually exists. Its a laser procedure called feeder vessel treatment. The procedure often takes less than 10 minutes to perform and is done in the clinic. Its not a replacement for your injections but can be used in combination with your injections, sometimes helping to reduce the total number of injections. Heres the other piece of good news. Its available right here in Fort Myers at the Eye Centers of Florida. There are only a handful of retina centers in the world that offer this procedure. Ours at the Eye Centers of Florida is one of them. Call us today for an appointment, a second opinion or to see if youre a candidate for laser feeder vessel treatment. 12 Convenient Locations www.ecof.com 239.939.3456 ASK THE SURGEONADVERTORIALDr. Walid Mangal D.O.Vitreo-Retinal Surgeon Seeking to put Gods love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 19-25, 2015 NEWS A23 Eagle Scout effort results in gazebo at community gardenMembers of the Collier Community Garden initiative recently honored John Randall Pelletier for his Eagle Scout project: the construction of a gazebo on the grounds of the first Collier Community Garden. Johns effort took almost one year to complete, beginning with the preparation of an Eagle Scout project plan and continuing with raising the necessary $4,000 and then selecting the design for and building the gazebo. A 17-year-old senior at Palmetto Ridge High School, John has been a Boy Scout for more than 10 years. He belongs to Troop 214 of the Southwest Florida Council, Alligator District. His father, John Pelletier Sr., is the troop scoutmaster, and John credits him with inspiring and guiding him toward completion of his Eagle Scout project. The highest honor in scouting, the Eagle Award is bestowed only to an estimated 6 percent of the nations 2.6 million members of the Boy Scouts of America each year. The garden behind the Golden Gate Community Center is the first community-supported garden on public land where vegetables, fruits and herbs can be grown year-round. CCG members have enjoyed a variety of gardening experiences and fellowship at the garden thus far, thanks to support from the Collier County Parks and Recreation Department. So far, 23 gardening plots have been leased at a nominal annual fee to interested county residents. For more information, visit colliercommunitygarden.org.

Millions from Naples Winter Wine Festival will boost programs for hunger, vision problems and out-of-school needs SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThree long-term strategic initiatives that fill fundamental gaps in childrens services will receive grants this year thanks to the success of the 2015 Naples Winter Wine Festival. The Childrens Vision Initiative, the Childrens Out of School Initiative and the Childrens Hunger Initiative will all receive a portion of $3.8 million designated for them by the Naples Children & Education Foundation, the founding organization of NWWF. Collaborating with partners on the ground and bridging public and private resources allow us to serve more children by placing them in high-quality programs, says Jim Dixon, chair of the 2015 NCEF grants committee and one of the co-chairs for the 2016 NWWF. These strategic initiatives are the most effective way to address pressing needs in our community, he adds. We couldnt be more pleased to fund them year after year. The initiatives are the result of studies commissioned by NCEF in 2005 and 2010 that identified significant gaps in basic services for Collier Countys children. Knowing that solutions to these problems would require the resources and expertise of many in the community, NCEF convened a coalition of partners to work together in new ways. These multi-partner, multi-year projects are fundamentally changing service delivery for the countys most vulnerable children and providing comprehensive solutions to issues that have continuously plagued the community.Vision initiativeNow You See It, NCEFs initiative to address pediatric vision challenges among at-risk youth, will receive $1 million over the next three years. These donations will ensure children in Collier Countys high-need schools and early childhood centers receive vision screenings by eye professionals and that, when medically appropriate, they receive full eye exams and two pairs of eyeglasses (one for home and one for school). Thanks to the Now You See It initiative, Collier County is the first county in Florida to have a dedicated mobile unit for conducting vision examinations and dispensing prescription eyeglasses. Through collaboration with the Bonita Springs Lions Eye Clinic, Floridas Vision Quest and Lighthouse of Collier, approximately 20,000 children a year are screened. The initiative also provides tertiary care and other comprehensive services to children with vision needs. This includes ophthalmology services such as treatment and surgery for specific diagnosis, and summer and afterschool services for visually impaired children and related support services.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 19-25, 2015 NEWS A32 Old and new combine to create a healthy outlook Here at NCH we recently celebrated the old and rang in the new. First was the 30th anniversary of our urgent care clinic on Marco Island, and second was the groundbreaking for NCH Northeast, a 40,000-squarefoot, freestanding emergency room. Marco Islands Urgent Care Center hit the three-decade mark but still has a staff is as energetic and vibrant as any in our system. It is the most extensive facility NCH has outside our two major hospital campuses and is staffed with board-certified ER physicians and physician assistants who are most capable of caring for patients with minor illnesses and injuries. Radiology services, including CT scans, ultrasounds and regular X-rays, complement the diagnostic capabilities and are all certified for quality and safety by the Joint Commission. The urgent care clinic shares a campus with our full-service rehabilitation center and physicians offices that house NCH Physician Group members including Dr. Robert Folsom, who started practice 37 years ago and Dr. David Linz, who started practice last year. Betsy Novakovich, RN, is director of emergency services at the clinic, leading approximately 50 colleagues who cared for 7,689 patients last year. Happy 30th anniversary to one and all. By contrast to the above milestone, more than 100 of us attended a groundbreaking ceremony for NCH Northeast at the corner of Immokalee Road and Collier Boulevard. NCH Northeast will include a 24/7 emergency room on the first floor, accompanied by radiology with a CT scanner and MRI. Also in place will be our teleneurology robot system, blood bank and laboratory, making this location as fully capable as our two hospital building-based ERs. Additionally on the first floor will be a small rehabilitation facility, our eighth in Southwest Florida. The second floor of NCH Northeast will have offices for 12 new NCH Physician Group doctors, starting with Drs. Monica Menichello, Brian Menichello, Bruce Gelinas and Richard Prewitt. Eight more will be joining once the building is completed. Both of these facilities are part of a busy and growing NCH. Last month was among the busiest ever in our history in terms of number of surgeries performed as well as number of patients admitted and those who were seen in our ERs. We also are hiring, having added more than 160 new employees over the past two months. Im reminded of when I was in private practice with two colleagues when phoning in for everything from scheduling a new appointment to obtaining lab results was the norm; there were days when the phone never stopped ringing. In the midst of phone fatigue, we all agreed the only thing worse than the phone ringing too much was it ringing not at all. The same is true at NCH today. As Southwest Florida continues to grow with year-round residents and also swell with seasonal visitors, we will continue to be called on, constantly, to help everyone live longer, happier, healthier lives. Thats why we continue to add new facilities, freestanding ERs, electronic communication and staff. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation presents program about how The Big Book came to beFred Holmquist, director of the Lodge Program at the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation in Minnesota, will present a program on the origin of The Big Book, the historic manuscript that created the foundation for Alcoholics Anonymous, from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 28, at First United Methodist Church in Naples. Presented by Hazelden in Naples, part of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, the event is free and open to the public. History buffs, archivists and those who appreciate The Big Book will enjoy Mr. Holmquists insights about the history of this now classic text and the foreshadowing of issues that surfaced in the years following the books publication. His review provides context for understanding the emergence of the Twelve Traditions as well as Bill W.s essays on the steps for emotional sobriety published 14 years later in Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions. Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story of How Many Thousands of Men and Women Have Recovered from Alcoholism generally known as The Big Book because of the thickness of the paper used in the first edition was originally published in 1939. It is one of the best-selling books of all time, with more than 30 million copies sold. In 2011, Time magazine placed The Big Book on its list of 100 Best and Most Influential Books written in English; in 2012, the Library of Congress designated it as one of 88 Books that Shaped America. First United Methodist Church is at 388 First Ave. S. Although admission to Mr. Holmquists presentation is free, registration is required by Wednesday, Feb. 25. Call 659-2356 or email Nay Pacheco at firstname.lastname@example.org. Whats normal when it comes to memory loss?Memory loss and forgetfulness can be a normal part of aging.

In fact, 50 percent of retirees say their old life with blaring alarm clocks and career pressure was better than retirement, and the divorce rate is rising among baby boomer retirees even as its falling for all other age groups. Most people focus on acquiring enough money to allow them to retire comfortably and on deciding where they want to live. They dont think about three fundamental aspects of a happy retirement that show up right after the newness wears off.

It gets us all in the end. But just as exercising, eating right and mental gymnastics can help humans live longer and better, the same is true for dogs and cats. We want to share the best ways to promote longevity for animals as they enter their middle and senior years. But first, what defines a senior pet? That depends on species, breed and size. Cats tend to enter the golden years between the ages of 7 and 11. Some dogs show brain aging as early as 6 or 7 years, while others seem to remain young in heart and mind until they are 10 to 12 years old. Toy poodles and Chihuahuas are among the longest-lived breeds, and some are still bouncing around at 15 and living to be 20 or more. The important thing to remember is that every dog and cat is an individual, so the age at which they start to show physical or mental decline can vary. To improve your pets chances of living into old age gracefully, he needs five things: regular veterinary care, a great diet, physical exercise, social enrichment and mental stimulation. As he ages, all of these components will help him stay fit and can even improve cognition. A lot of us operate on the principle If it aint broke, dont fix it. That might work with cars, but cats and dogs? Not so much. We often dont see whats going wrong with pets because they dont complain, and its easy to miss subtle signs. An annual veterinary exam, or even twice a year for seniors if you can swing it financially, means that your pet is getting the once-over from your veterinarians fresh eyes and experienced perspective. That can make all the difference in catching diseases early so they can be treated or managed more effectively. Stick with your pets normal, highquality food if hes still healthy and active, but make sure he doesnt eat too much, especially if hes less active than he once was. If hes putting on weight, your veterinarian may recommend a lower-fat senior diet. If hes too thin, he may need a food thats higher in protein and fat. Pets with health problems such as kidney failure or heart disease may need special diets. If youre concerned about cognitive impairment, ask your veterinarian about one of the foods containing supplements that improve brain function.Keep him moving, within the limits of his age and abilities. If he cant run, walk. If he cant walk as far, take shorter walks. If his mobility isnt what it once was, play gentle games indoors or in your yard. Keep his brain busy. Pets need consistent mental and social stimulation. Make mealtime more challenging with a feeding maze or a toy he must move to make the food fall out. Play hide-and-seek games at home, practice his obedience skills or start training him for a sport such as nose work, which can be played by dogs of any size or age. Heck, tell him about that story you heard on NPR on the way home. He probably wont offer an opinion on it, but listening to you and interacting with you will help his brain stay limber. This type of enrichment is vital for a dogs or cats physical, mental and behavioral health. Most important, never assume that nothing can be done to mitigate the effects of aging. If you notice that your dog or cat seems less active or playful, is confused or starts to break housetraining when he never did before, tell your veterinarian. Those can be signs of cognitive dysfunction or a medical problem that can be treated. With treatment or environmental changes, your old pet may have a new lease on life. Mental and physical enrichment contribute to longer lifespans in pets.

MarineMax Naples I 1146 6th Avenue South I Naples, FL 34102 I www.marinemax.com/naples THE DIVA DIARIESHigh season is high time to practice relaxation breathing Weve pretty much reached what we call here in Southwest Florida high season that time when our calendars are stuffed to brimming with social engagements, festive events and trying to make time for mundane things such as work, errands and sitting in the doctors waiting room for two hours just to get a check-up because we are now sharing our little corner of paradise with approximately 978,566,586,934 tourists and part-time residents. Im convinced that these conditions cause our brains to addle and turn to mush. Recently, I sat in my doctors waiting room, which was packed with people as old as Methuselah in wheelchairs and folks with oxygen tanks (bless their hearts), for 92 minutes just to have a prescription refilled. At least I could play Words With Friends until my phone battery died. Afterward, I struggled home, cheating death as confused snowbirds in the left lane slammed on their brakes for no other reason than, I guess, to see if I was paying attention, while at the same time impatient locals darted in and out of traffic, back and forth in between cars thinking, I suppose, that by nearly killing everyone else on the road, they would somehow escape the madness, and yet, they only succeeded in adding more peril. Once I got home I had but 12 minutes in which to take a shower, blow dry and flat iron my hair, put on some make-up, find something to wear and get back on the Roads of Misery in order to make it to a to-do that started at 6. If youre trying to accomplish a similar list whilst also chauffeuring your children back and forth to school, sporting events and scout meetings, I am praying for you, I really am. By the time I arrived at my evening engagement, I was not glowing, and I was barely congenial. My hair was back in a clip because I didnt have time to dry it, and my make-up had been applied in the car. An acquaintance at the event was charitable enough to whisper in my ear that my shirt was on inside out. When I made it to through the crowd to an open bar that only offered tiny plastic glasses of Barefoot merlot poured from $11.99 jugs, it was like a beautiful oasis with a fountain gushing Veuve Clicquot. But apparently, everyone there had experienced a day similar to mine, because the wine line was nearly as long and slow as the one to get through airport security. As I waited, trying to recover from delayed appointments, terrifying traffic and wet hair, I noticed that everyone around me seemed shaken and addled as well like we were all suffering from PTSD, just from trying to survive through another day of high season here in Southwest Florida. Ive heard some people declare they wont leave their homes, other than to go to work, until season is over, but we all know thats just a dream. There is good news, however, for my fellow brave, year round residents: The exodus back North usually happens at Easter, and this year we have a mercifully early Easter, April 5.

Once, it was the domain of men only and that usually meant door-to-door selling on a commission basis. A salesman would cold-call or knock, and then try to talk his way straight into the living rooms of working-class members of The Greatest Generation, the parents of the baby boomers. Fuller brush salesmen. Vacuum salesmen. Bible salesmen. Encyclopedia salesmen. Thats mostly gone now, for a lot of reasons. But now up and down the southwest coast of Florida and indeed from sea to shining sea from Port Charlotte to Naples and Sarasota to Seattle direct marketing is in significant part the domain of women. So of course its completely different. Now its more intimate, more social and community oriented. Direct sellers are more robust philanthropists, too. They sell their products while also pitching for certain charities, thus doing well by doing good, sometimes. And now their line of work is also called multi-level marketing, a vocation carried out by saleswomen who say they are helping themselves by helping others.

Some statistics make headlines: U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP); Consumer Price Index (CPI); unemployment and employment data; consumer confidence index; U.S. federal outstanding debt; etc. Even though important, there are limitations in the way these statistics are reported. For example, GDP often takes several subsequent month revisions to get the previous quarters GDP closer to accuracy. Even if there is skepticism about the absolute number or discerning whether a short-term trend is in place, there is greater meaning if a statistical trend is well-established over a very long period of time. For instance, a rising CPI would suggest inflation even though the degree of inflation could be debated. And such is the case with the Velocity of Money (Velocity); it has been in a significant downtrend for a long, long time. The definition of the Velocity of Money is quite simple: how fast, how often a dollar is used in buy/sale transactions. These buy/sale transactions are sum-totaled to equal the U.S. GDP. If the amount of money or quantity of money in the economy is held constant, then the faster that a dollar is spent, and spent again with more and more transactions, then the economy grows, producing a larger GDP. If Velocity is in a rising trend (and Money Supply is constant), it tells you that people in the U.S. are doing more stuff with their money. During an inflationary period, there is very high velocity (as people keep turning their money to keep up with rising prices.) If Velocity is falling (and Money Supply is constant), then it means that people are hoarding their money (as in deflation, where people sit on their money as asset prices are falling). The attached charts show that Velocity has fallen off a cliff regardless of what measure of money is used. M1 includes money that is readily spendable by households; M2 includes M1 and more household financial assets; and MZM is institutional money funds plus much of M2.) All quantity of money measuremenat are collapsing. To compensate for what would surely be a contraction in economic activity/collapsing GDP due to hugely decreased Velocity, the Federal Reserve/central bankers have increased the U.S. money supply by several trillions, as Money Supply multiplied by Velocity equals GDP. If Velocity has tanked, then the Money Supply has to be drastically increased to keep GDP steady. The Federal Reserve has worked a charm but it has now painted itself into a monetary corner. It is trying to reverse/end its expansionary monetary policy without an economic contraction. But such is not possible unless Velocity increases. Since August 2015 when Money Supply hit its all-time peak, there have been all sorts of market and asset troubles. Is there a solution outside the Fed? It might be that Europes easy money will make its way into the U.S. and increase our Money Supply. But that is another non-solution in the long term. Absent confidence (see economist Martin Armstrongs blog for further discussion) or absent inflationary expectations, Velocity will likely not increase. As long as equity and bond portfolios do well, there is less tendency by investors to look under the hood. Jeannette Showalter, CFA is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 19-25, 2015 Ms. Ulrich owns and manages a wellness business, The New You Lifestyles, while also representing (since 2001) a network marketing company called USANA Health Sciences Inc., described in a press release as a U.S.-based nutritional company that manufactures supplements, personal care and energy products. Lora is our areas authority on USANA. Such direct sellers can sell their products directly to individuals, or to groups of individuals at parties hosted by willing customers. Or they can recruit and help train team members other saleswomen for which they also receive a commission. Thats why the work is called multi-level marketing. I was raised (in Rhode Island) to think that when I grew up and got married, I should devote all my time to my husband and children, says Ann DeBonis, a 55-year-old model of success as a multi-level marketer her product is Silpada, described by the company as a collection of the highest-quality, handcrafted .925 sterling silver jewelry complemented by natural materials, such as semiprecious stones, rich woods and leather. And she did exactly that, happily, while spending 20 years as the human resources manager in her husbands family company, the Riverside Service Corp., based in Rehobeth, Mass. Then she retired, and found herself longing for something fun something broader than home life could provide on its own. I really wanted friends, she recalls. So, after hearing about Silpada from somebody she knew and trusted, Mrs. DeBonis signed up and went into business for herself. That was five years ago, and it proved to be a propitious decision. In 2011, the couple lost their 28-yearold son, Rob their only child in an automobile accident. Her connection with Silpada and the women who sell it and buy it, she says, helped her survive the worst trauma of her life. A year after I started, he was killed. Silpada saved me. It helped me get out of my head, and I would think of him and I still think of him saying to me, Mom, Im happy to see that part of your life and your friendships from it. Im so glad for you. Her husband was always supportive, too, she says and now Mrs. DeBonis is one of the top 170 Silpada saleswomen in the United States (out of about 25,000), which is why she just won a September trip to Paris from her company. She attends about three networking meetings a month and works about six months in Florida and five or six in New England. In all that, shes no fan of the hard sell. Im not big on the upsell, she explains. I dont believe in it. I like to let the parties and the product speak for themselves. Thats Lora Ulrichs approach, too, she says and its her advice for any who endeavor to become multi-level marketers just to pay for the product or earn some extra cash, or to establish a life in which they can work where and when they want, and if theyre successful make a lot of money. Personal connections and creating relationships is what really can help you grow your business (in multi-level marketing) small or large or as big as you want, she says. Especially with so much white noise, and people being marketed to or bombarded by marketing all the time. In Ms. Ulrichs case, it helps that these words began appearing on a nationally syndicated and highly popular afternoon TV show last month: I always talk to my friends and family about USANA. The words appear with a photo of Dr. Mehmet Oz standing in hospital scrubs on the set of his show, one of whose sponsors is now USANA Health Sciences, Inc. Last year, Dr. Oz was severely scolded at a U.S. Congressional hearing for allowing his show to promote products that may or may not have done what they boldly claimed in effect, for using his credentials as a medical doctor to hawk products with empty promises, like a carnival barker. But Ms. Ulrich could vouch for her products long before Dr. Oz became a household name, she says, and nowadays his show is very careful to do its own research before it accepts a sponsor such as USANA. So many people have negative connotations about this multi-level marketing because so many people out there are scammy or hypy or secretive, she adds, calling it the white elephant. But in her case, I researched the company and products and compensation plans. Thats extremely important for somebody coming into this to not just believe what somebody tells them. This is a business, like any business. This isnt a get rich quick scheme. So any aspiring multi-level marketer should do what she did: Look at what the integrity of the company is, what the business management looks like. USANA is also a publicly traded company. From a publicly traded standpoint, all the records are open books. I looked at all that because I was taking this seriously. Some people think theyre starting a business when they do this, but they approach it as a hobby. For Christin Collins, senior director of development for the Lee Memorial Health Systems Foundation, Ms. Ulrich and USANA have been lifesavers of sorts, she says. She met the multi-level marketer first through community volunteering work that both of them undertook for PACE Center for Girls, which offers counseling and academic tutoring to teenagers facing difficult challenges. I was having some health issues, and we chatted. I found her to be extremely knowledgeable. Over the last three years our relationship has evolved, and now shes one of my top go-to people when it comes to health. Shes all about wellness. Shes ahead of the curve as far as knowledge and information. And now Ms. Collins is a USANA multi-level tasker, herself, although on a more limited scale than Ms. Ulrich, she says. It boils down to this, she concludes: I was very sick. Standard medicine didnt help me. Food and nutrition are such a baseline for health, but thats not something our culture or society understands: How you eat and how you move influence how you feel. We try to pop these pills and do other things, but its so basic and simple. And she understands that and can communicate it to lay people. For Ann Debonis, it boils down to a kind of freedom and fun: The beauty of this kind of business is that I can go where I want, when I want to travel. A lot of it is just meeting people and offering services. And that varies from helping somebody find a look for an event, to helping people who want to have parties, to networking and fundraising, to word of mouth. What none of it boils down to, they say: going door-to-door, or trying to hustle somebody.

I bought my first hotels in 1993, and today I am one of the worlds largest hotel and leisure companies, with more than 180,000 employees and 1,200-plus properties (spanning 100 countries) that I own, operate and/or franchise.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Are You Ready for Retirement?Most of us are looking forward to retirement, but many of us are not sufficiently preparing for it financially. Thats very dangerous, because with pensions no longer common in the workplace, individual workers now bear much more responsibility for their own retirements. Yes, theres Social Security to count on, but its trust funds are set to become insolvent in the mid 2030s. If theyre not shored up before then, benefit payments might be about 25 percent lower. Even at current levels, Social Security isnt exactly a windfall. The average monthly benefit for a retiree in early 2015 was just $1,328, or $15,936 per year. Meanwhile, check out these scary statistics from the 2014 Retirement Confidence Survey published by the Employee Benefit Research Institute: Only 64 percent of American workers have saved for retirement, down from a recent peak of 75 percent in 2009. More than a third of Americans, 36 percent, have socked away less than $1,000 and 60 percent have less than $25,000 saved. A 2013 Wells Fargo survey found that close to half of todays middleclass households dont expect to have enough money for a comfortable retirement. You can improve your financial future significantly by saving aggressively. For starters, take full advantage of IRAs and 401(k)s at work. Employers often offer matching funds with 401(k) plans, so at least contribute enough to max out any matching funds thats free money. IRAs come in the traditional and Roth varieties, offering, respectively, contributions deductible in the current year or tax-free withdrawals in retirement. You can contribute up to $5,500 to an IRA (plus a $1,000 catch-up contribution if youre 50 or older) in 2014 and 2015, and the deadline for each tax year is the tax-filing deadline (usually April 15) of the following year. The contribution limits for 401(k)s are much higher, at $17,500 plus a $5,500 catch-up contribution for those 50 and older in 2014; for 2015, its $18,000 plus a $6,000 catch-up contribution.

I sold at $28 and made $2,400. That was a lot of beer money at the time, but if Id held on, I could have made more than 40 times my initial investment. I bought shares of digital storage company Iomega in 1994 and rode it all the way up, and then all the way down. At its peak, my $3,900 investment was worth $120,000. I guess the moral of my investment saga is timing. Its all about timing, and no one can time the market. But I will keep trying. D., onlineThe Fool Responds: No one can time the market perfectly, as well never know exactly when it or any given stock will surge or plunge. Instead, its best to just keep up with your holdings, hanging on for the long haul as long as you remain confident of their competitive positions and their future.

Within the United States, the tobacco industry is facing some tough challenges. Efforts to educate the public about the dangers of smoking tobacco coupled with strict regulations governing the industry have pushed cigarette prices higher and adult smoking rates to an all-time low. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, just 17.8 percent of adults in the U.S. (42.1 million) are now smokers, compared to 42 percent of the adult population five decades ago. Furthermore, heavy smokers are smoking less. The end result has been a steady decline in cigarette volumes for many tobacco producers. Enter Philip Morris International, with its strong Marlboro brand, operating in more than 100 countries outside the United States. While it does encounter some countries with even stricter tobacco legislation than the U.S., it also can counteract these slow-growth regions with high-population countries such as India and China, where a growing middle class seeking simple luxuries has turned to tobacco. Even if Philip Morris Internationals business grows slowly in coming years, with its recent price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 16 and a fat dividend yield recently at 4.8 percent, its still a worthy contender for incomeseeking investors. I trace my roots back to a caramel company in Pennsylvania in 1894, when mass production helped me make sweets more affordable for the masses. My founder created a school for needy children in 1909. I introduced chocolate syrup for home use in 1926 and chocolate chips in 1928. In World War II, I made more than a billion ration bars for the military. Today, based in a town that bears my name, Im North Americas top chocolate and confectionary company, and a major player in gums and mints, too. I rake in more than $7 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: Hershey) Stuffing the ChannelQWhat does it mean if a company is reportedly stuffing the channel? L.C., Chalmette, LouisianaAIts when a company deceptively inflates its sales numbers by shipping products ahead of schedule, filling distribution channels with more than is needed. Since companies often record sales as soon as they ship products, channel stuffing can make it seem that business is booming. But if many of the products are not sold, they can end up returned to the manufacturer, resulting in sales that were already claimed never occurring. You can look for channel stuffing by seeing if a companys accounts receivable is growing faster than sales, as thats a red flag. Alternatively, calculate its days sales outstanding (DSO): Simply divide accounts receivable by sales, and then multiply what you get by the number of days in the period. This reveals how many days worth of sales is represented by the current accounts receivable. Between 30 and 45 days is typical. (Note that sales are sometimes referred to as revenue, and that for the number of days, youll use 365 for a year and 91 for a quarter.) A company with a low DSO is getting its cash back quicker and, ideally, putting it immediately to use, getting an edge on the competition. Rising numbers can signify channel stuffing. This doesnt work for all companies, though. Restaurants and other cash-based businesses, for example, arent going to have much, if any, receivables. ***QWhats business shrinkage? F.B., Fruitland, MarylandAShrinkage is also related to inventory. Its the routine loss of inventory, such as through accidental breakage or theft. A certain amount of profit-reducing inventory loss is all but inevitable, and retailers make allowances for shrinkage in their plans and reports.Got a question for the Fool?

Carrara Generating Strong Appeal at Talis ParkWith construction activity progressing on schedule, the penthouse-style Carrara condominium residences at Talis Park in North Naples continue to generate strong appeal among homebuyers intent on enjoying the simplicity of a maintenance-free lifestyle. An enclave of spacious residences being built by WCI Communities, Carrara will feature 90 homes in 15 midrise buildings at build-out. Each building includes three floors over parking with two residences per floor. The first four buildings are now under construction with over 80% of the residences sold. Two additional buildings have recently been released for sales. Completion of the first Carrara building is anticipated in spring 2015. Priced from the $700s, Carrara offers the simplicity of maintenance-free condominium living along with the luxurious ambiance one would expect in a community of Talis Parks stature. Each residence includes a private elevator lobby, a spacious great room, a gourmet island kitchen, an on the view master suite, two guest ensuites, a library/ media room, a powder bath, and secured ground level parking. The luxury penthouse-style residences offer more than 2,900 square feet of air conditioned living space and feature wraparound loggias. The Carrara residences overlook the Sea Dwarf Paspalum fairways and greens of Talis Parks Greg NormanPete Dye designed golf course and Vyne House a New Fashioned clubhouse located on the communitys Grand Piazza. Golf, tennis, a fitness center, spa and multiple dining venues will be within a short walk from the Carrara residences. Construction of the neighborhoods private hospitality area has begun and includes a pool, a covered gathering area, restrooms, and grills. The hospitality area will be located just steps away from Talis Parks Casa Cortese Grille, an outdoor dining and lounge experience situated adjacent to the communitys pristine driving range. Developer Kitson & Partners has created a new vision at Talis Park that redefines the Naples country club experience. Kitsons contemporary interpretation of luxury living is uncomplicated. Talis Park is the Club reconsidered and invites a select group of members to enjoy an active, health-oriented lifestyle. Talis Parks neighborhoods offer a parklike setting with golf course, preserve and water views, or a maintenance-free environment within walking distance of the communitys amenity core. This In the Park or In the Village approach reflects Kitsons commitment to creating a community where every aspect of country club living is relevant to the residents daily lives. Carraras In the Village lifestyle brings a measure of simplicity to luxury living that affords immediate access to Talis Parks amenities. Carraras proximity to Casa Cortese and Vyne House will offer residents a full In the Village experience. Casa Corteses outdoor dining and lounge area is a favored gathering place for Talis Park residents for lunch, following a round of golf, and during weekly happy hours that are included on the communitys full slate of social events. Located adjacent to the Great Lawn at Talis Parks Grand Piazza, Vyne House epitomizes Kitsons New Fashioned aesthetic. Vyne House consists of a series of lifestyle oriented spaces designed to be used every day, inviting users to come as they are in a relaxed, comfortable format. The buildings are interconnected by covered outdoor walkways and wrapped around multiple courtyards that offer the possibility of outdoor dining and entertaining. The already completed Vyne House Shops features Fionas Market Cafe. Fionas serves fresh, local fare, wine selections, bar service and other items. Fionas general store personality offers a dining experience that complements Casa Corteses comfortable ambiance. Fionas will provide Carrara residents with an ideal gathering place for conversation and coffee after a bike ride or walk, after a workout, yoga or Pilates session in the Vyne House Core Fitness Center, or after a manicure or massage in the Esprit Spa, both of which are favored destinations for Talis Parks residents. Vertical construction of the 26,470 square feet under air, multi-level Vyne House Phase II project is underway and progressing on schedule. Kitson anticipates holding a soft opening of Phase II in December, 2015 and a grand opening in January, 2016. Phase II will introduce Palm Court, an open-air courtyard that is the centerpiece of Vyne House. In addition to serving as a point of entry, Palm Court will be used as a social space suited to hosting a variety of events. The upper level will also include formal indoor dining, casual indoor and outdoor dining, a multi-purpose room adjacent to Palm Court, aerobics and cardio workout rooms, and a Wine Room/ Board Room that will host wine tastings and monthly wine pairing dinners. The lower level of Vyne House Phase II will host the golf pro shop as well as mens and ladies locker rooms. Phase II will also include completion of a resort style pool and a stately rotunda featuring a two-sided fireplace overlooking the 18th green. Talis Park is anchored by the lakes and Sea Dwarf Paspalum fairways and greens and glittering lakes of the Talis Park Golf Club golf course. One of two Greg Norman-Pete Dye designed courses in the world, the course is ranked #91 in Golfweeks 2014 Best Residential Courses and consistently ranked among the top 20 courses in Florida. Talis Park is conveniently located just minutes from the beach and from the dining, shopping and entertainment venues at Mercato, Coconut Point and Gulf Coast Town Center.

I figure, whats the point of muddling through a relationship when things are destined to fall apart? Better to know right from the start. So I began casting around for my own shorthand method. For a while I thought it might be whether or not he picked up the check at dinner, but I quickly saw that some real jerks will buy me a meal while some truly good guys are happy to let me pay. Scratch that one. How, I worried, was I ever going to divine the essence of a man in a short amount of time? My little house, it turns out, gave me the answer. At the beginning of the year, I bought my first house, a tiny little thing that sits on a sprawling double lot. The house itself is miniature a jewel box, one friend called it but the property feels immense, with room for a garden and fruit trees and a towering poinciana so magnificent the former owner installed spotlights. When Im overwhelmed by seasonal traffic, or this cold I seem to be fighting, or the sheer drudgery of daily life, I sit in my spacious yard and feel better about this world we live in. When I started interviewing contractors to do work on my house, the first guy who showed up arrived wearing a ripped shirt and busted trousers. I noticed he was missing a few teeth. Eyeing my property he said, You know what you should do here? You should divide this lot. Sell the other half. You could make a lot of money that way. I stared at him. Couldnt he see that the whole point of this place is the big beautiful double lot? Soon, I noticed that everyone who visited my house offered up an opinion in one of the two camps. They either admired the expansiveness and tranquility of the backyard, or they immediately and without prompting suggested I divide and sell. My close friends, the ones whose company I enjoy, all admired the lot. Which made me wonder: Could this be my test? I decided to give it a try. One afternoon, I invited over a man Id been seeing, someone who speaks about art and literature with conviction but who I wasnt convinced had any of either in himself. He drove up in his expensive foreign car looking cosmopolitan and sophisticated. I gave him a tour. He admired my espresso maker and said he liked the Mexican tiles on my terrace. He seemed impressed by the Art Deco table in my entryway. The wood floors were nice, he said. The pine molding, too. Then: the moment of truth. We stood together on my terrace looking out over the property. The sky shone a sapphire blue and every leaf and branch, every blade of grass, gleamed. The man turned to me with a smile and my heart thundered in my chest. You know, he said, his eyes narrowing, you could sell that lot. Youd make a fortune.

Roads would flood, and no one acted like it was weird! Im telling you, its weird. Then by 5 or 6, it was amazing how quickly it all went back up (into the sky). You have to be careful, you can be caught in a giant rain suck. Something bizarre is going on in Florida. Shes perplexed by the weather indoors, too. As she wrote in her memoir, Theres Nothing in This Book That I Meant to Say: If it were as cold outside in the winter as they make it inside in the summer, theyd put the heat on. It makes no sense. She recently played Orlando and Clearwater, flying directly from Chicago. I could never put away my heavy jacket, she says. If you went out to eat, it was colder in a restaurant in Florida than it is outside in Chicago in the wintertime. You have a weird state. Its a whole state of people who have decided to never be comfortable. I dont know if its a guilt thing: Im not worthy. Theyre always having hurricanes and tornados created by some kind of low pressure/ high pressure collision in the lobby of a Dennys. That cold air-conditioned air hits that hot, steamy Florida air, and it creates a freakish weather pattern. If it happens outside, they show it on a weather map. How could that not happen, with that weather difference? Its a theory, but theres science in that somewhere.Disney bears and pancakesMs. Poundstone briefly lived in Orlando in 1978. Very briefly. I was raised in Massachusetts; we believe that Florida is the Promised Land, and thats where you should go, she says. I went there hoping to get hired by Disney. I wanted to be a bear in the Disneyland parade. It didnt happen. She wound up working the graveyard shift, 11 p.m. to 7 a.m., at an International House of Pancakes on the rough side of town. I was so young and nave I could not figure out why all those women were walking around in dresses, and why all these men were offering them rides home, she says. Within the year, she moved back to Massachusetts. Shes returned to Orlando numerous times since, however, to do stand-up. I have to say (with my most recent visit), I had the best time with both crowds (in Orlando and Clearwater). I always expect to have a good time, but it was surprising how much fun it was. I didnt expect it to stand out in my mind as a crowd that I really connected with. It was glorious. She pauses, then adds, I dont want to put too much pressure on the audiences at Fort Myers and Coral Springs The Disney bear gig didnt work out, but the stand-up did. The comedian has had various HBO comedy specials and is a frequent guest on The Late Late Show (her next appearance is Tuesday, March 3). In 1992, Ms. Poundstone became the first woman invited to perform at the White House correspondents dinner. In 2010 she was inducted into the Comedy Hall of Fame, and Comedy Central named her on its list of 100 Greatest Standups of PAULAFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOPaula Poundstones humor is highly improvisational.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 19-25, 2015 C5 All Time. Her most recent CD is I Heart Jokes: Paula Tells Them in Boston. Easily distracted fishIn her distinctive scratchy voice that makes her sound as if she could be a close relative of Marge Simpsons, Ms. Poundstone practices a droll stream-ofconsciousness stand-up. Im a fish in the stream of consciousness, she declares. When she first started out, shed do five minutes during open mic nights at Boston comedy clubs. Shed carefully write out a routine and time it. During the day, shed practice. You could see my lips moving while I was bussing tables, she recalls. But that evening, as she walked toward the microphone, shed inevitably see something and comment on it and immediately forget everything shed memorized. I dont know what day it was that it dawned on me: The joy was in not knowing. The joy was in allowing myself to comment on this thing Id just noticed (and riff on that). In the early days, she would pull herself back from commenting on the thing shes just noticed and attempt to return to the script. But actually, the funny thing was the thing Id just noticed, she said. At a certain point, I decided to allow myself to not remember, to go off script, as it were. For me, thats where the heart of the night lives. No two shows are the same. Her favorite part of the night is talking with the audience, asking people where theyre from, what they do for a living. Somewhere along the way, theyll say something that reminds me of something. And then shes off and running. Somewhere in my brains is 35 years of material. Some of it I dont remember, some I just access, depending on where we are in the conversation. Theres a Rolodex in my head, she says. Its not in the Cloud. Thats not to say that her shows are old, recycled material. When I do think of something new Id like to talk about, I write myself a note, she says. I go to the trouble of carrying it with me in a notebook. If its more than one or two things, they fold in, like dry ingredients, and I staple them onto one of those cards in the Rolodex. She wrote her book, Theres Nothing in This Book That I Meant to Say, the same way. At the time, a lot of comics were writing books, and they basically wrote their act, she says. I knew I didnt want to do that. Her inspiration for that book was the childrens picture book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff. In it, a mouse comes to a boys house. When the boy gives it a cookie, the mouse wants a glass of milk to go with it, and then something else, and then something else. The whole thing is a chain of events, and at the end, the kid is exhausted, Ms. Poundstone says. That book was really inspirational to me, because I am the mouse I remember one thing, I attend to that, then that reminds me of something else All my conversations go that way I have a tendency to cut people off, because something they say reminds me of something (that happened to me). She decided to follow that format in Theres Nothing In This Book That I Meant To Say. Each chapter is devoted to a biography of a different famous person: Joan of Arc, Beethoven, Charles Dickens and others. Whenever their lives reminded her of something in her own life, shed just start writing about that. For example, in the chapter about Beethoven, she writes about his first opera, and that reminds her of Oprah. You can go from Beethoven to opera to my experience with Oprah, she says. That gives me joy. Shes working on a new book about happiness, but its so secret she didnt even discuss it. (A December article in The Virginian-Pilot says the working title is Totally Scientific Study of the Search for Human Happiness.)Wait waitIn addition to her stand-up, Ms. Poundstone is known for her wit as a regular panelist on the humorous NPR news quiz show, Wait Wait Dont Tell Me! (broadcast locally on WGCU-FM at 11 a.m. Saturdays.) The weekly contest pits panelists against each other, testing their knowledge of current events. Shes been connected with the show for at least 13 years, she says. In the early days, it wasnt recorded in front of a live audience. She had to go to a recording studio and wear a headset and never saw the other panelists. The director would be on a headset saying, Say whatever you want, which is generally the opposite of what I get told, she says. Its been a wonderful addition to my life. I feel extremely lucky. It does feel like a nice fit. We try to be polite and not step on one another when were talking. Everyone out there is hoping to have fun. No one has an ego about it. Though she tries to cram on current events, she admits to being the Wait Wait record holder for losing. The others cheat, she says, tongue firmly in cheek. Everybody talks about it. Its NPR, you think: wholesome, honest. But theres doping going on, theres steroids. Lots of lef t butt -cheeks exposed. I know, its shocking. But Im telling you, its the truth. At her stand-up gigs, she says, she has a strong fan base of people who have never heard of Wait Wait Dont Tell Me! And then there are audience members who come out to see her only because they know her from the radio show, and who dont realize shes a standup comic. I dont know what they think I was going to do (in a live act), she says. Answer questions about the news by myself? On a recent Wait Wait show, fashion commentator and window dresser Simon Doonan was a guest contestant. The host, Peter Sagal, jokingly said to him, Oh, dont talk to Paula about fashion. And he said, Oh no, Paula Poundstone is a fashion icon, and I thought, stop the show right there and just replay that over and over again. I even called my daughter at school to tell her. She said, He did not. I said, It was on NPR, it must be true. Paula Poundstone>> When: 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 20 >> Where: The Barbara B.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 19-25, 2015 Madcap and magical: Florida Reps Around the World in 80 DaysIt takes a certain audacity to put on a play. Multiply that audacity billions of times over if you attempt to stage a show whose setting is the world. Yep, the entire world, from London to Bombay to Hong Kong to New York, returning, eventually, to London, while hitting other major cities along the way. How do you fit all that on one small stage without breaking the budget? Its enough to make a set designer collapse, or at least weep. Yet Florida Repertory Theatre pulls it off with aplomb in its production of Around the World in 80 Days, Mark Browns riotous adaptation of Jules Vernes classic novel. It begins, as many things do, with a disagreement and a bet. Its 1872, and The Daily Telegraph has just estimated that with the building of the Suez Canal and completion of the Great Indian Peninsula Railway and Americas First Continental Railway, it would be possible for a person to travel completely around the world in 80 days. Impossible, scoff the snooty gentlemen at the Reform Club in London. But Phineas Fogg disagrees, and soon there is a wager. The very precise, regimented Mr. Fogg declares he will travel around the world in 80 days or else lose 20,000 pounds. (If he succeeds, hell win 400,000 pounds.) Brendan Powers plays Mr. Fogg with dignity and restraint, an honorable man who believes the sheer force of his will and optimism will make things happen. Hes buttoned up, but watch him slowly blossom when he gets in the company of a certain young lady. The tall, slim actor (made even taller by his black silk top hat) is accompanied on his journey by his valet, Passeparout, played by Greg Longenhagen. (In French, Passeparouts name means goes everywhere, an idiom for pass key or skeleton key. Its also a play on the English word for passport.) The two make an unlikely pair. Whereas Mr. Powers character is majestic, almost restrained in his movement, Mr. Passeparout is a ball of energy. Scurrying about in a black suit, bowler hat and curled-up moustache, hes a French Charlie Chaplin, fire to Mr. Foggs ice. The two run into a variety of delays and obstacles, accumulating, along the way, two others: Indian princess Auoda (Sharone Sayegh), whom they rescue, and Detective Fix (Jason Parrish), whos in pursuit of Mr. Fogg because he believe hes a bank thief and is determined to arrest him. Bruce Warren rounds out this quintet of actors, portraying a number of people (as do Mr. Parrish, Mr. Longenhagen and Ms. Sayegh.) They populate the world with on-target accents and quick costume changes, some of which are performed right in front of our eyes. With changing just a hat and accent, these extremely talented actors transform into totally different and memorable characters. There are cowboy hats and turbans, fezes and a Sherlockian deerhunter cap, to name just a few. My favorite was a playful miniature yellow fez with multiple aqua-colored tassels dangling from it, worn by Mr. Parrish. (Dina Perez designed this dazzling array of international costumes.) Mr. Warren is especially memorable as a befuddled judge in Calcutta and an old sea captain with a wooden leg, while Mr. Parrish stands out as an Indian elephant guide and an English preachers housekeeper. But these are only a few of the numerous characters they portray. Mr. Parrishs clueless Detective Fix is also fun to watch as he stumbles through the action and grows increasingly frustrated in his inability to detain Mr. Fogg. This madcap play opens with high energy and never lets up. (Its as much a never-relenting sprint for the actors as it is for their characters.) Part vaudeville and part off-kilter travelogue, its 100 percent sheer zaniness. The cast is joined onstage by Sean Hagerty, the shows sound designer/ composer, and Mike Magliocca, who play music and provide sound effects. They skillfully create an aural landscape that completes the transformation of a couple of chairs into a train, or a large wooden captains wheel into a ship. With the toot of a train whistle and the brush of two sandpaper blocks, were suddenly on a steam locomotive. Also at times, the two set off a metronome, adding a sense of urgency to the action and reminding us that Mr. Fogg is racing the clock and time is running out. Around the World in 80 Days is in the style of The 39 Steps and The Hound of the Baskervilles. Director Mark Shanahan, who acted in the original Broadway company of The 39 Steps and directed Florida Reps production of The Hound of the Baskervilles, knows how to draw just the right tone of loopiness out of his actors, whether its how they deliver a line or move in choreographed steps. These actors deliver constant laughs, whether jouncing on a galloping elephant or saying lines such as, Now hes trapped like a mouse in a mousetrapping thing! This cast serves up a maximum amount of laughs with a minimal amount of props a few couple chairs, a podium, a captains wheel, a globe. Our imagination fills in the rest. This is not to say that Richard Crowells set isnt clever. Its marble-like walls with numerous doors could be almost anywhere (an English gentlemens club, any number of foreign consulates), but hes positioned two enormous clocks above all the action, both connected, like wheels with spokes, to a set of gears at center stage, suggesting all manner of transportation. Locales are changed simply by replacing one placard with another, (Suez, Bombay, Calcutta, etc.) as if announcing another vaudeville act. And early in the play, Ms. Sayegh, as a paperboy, skillfully names each setting, while using the accent of each country. All the actors are so accurate and silly with the multiple accents they use, theyd make Sid Caesar proud. Around the World in 80 Days is wildly funny and thoroughly entertaining. Its magical, and just plain fun to watch. Journalist Nellie Bly might have traveled around the world in 72 days in 1889, and astronauts today make the same trip in 90 minutes. But surely nothings quite as fun as circumnavigating the globe in a couple of hours at Florida Rep with Around the World in 80 Days. I hate to say it, but maybe Walt Disney was right. It is a small world after all.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Having second thoughts could be a good thing, even if youre determined to go through with your plans. You might find it worthwhile to take a fresh look at how things have been set up. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Financial matters could continue to be a problem until youre able to straighten out some of the more pesky situations. Once that happens, the rest should be easier to unsnarl. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Family matters once again take center stage, and should be dealt with competently and quickly. And, again, insist on others taking on their fair share of the responsibilities. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your creative pursuits seem to be running into a roadblock. But rather than blame outside factors, look within to see if you might be holding back your efforts for some reason. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Keep that keen Cats Eye focused on relevant aspects of this new situation in your life. Dont be distracted by trivial matters. You need the pertinent facts before making a decision. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) As much as you prefer doing things on your own, continue to accept help if you still need to resolve the problem affecting your project. Some cheerful news is about to come your way. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) While you might begrudge the added time it will take to get your project from point A to B to C, etc., you could benefit from the facts that will emerge over this expanded time span. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Regarding your workplace suggestions, be prepared to produce the facts to counter reactions from skeptics who feel your approach is unreasonable or even impossible. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Savvy Sagittarians will look for work-related answers on their own rather than rely on unproved assumptions. It might take more time to do so, but the payoff is worth it. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your aspects continue to favor family issues, with special emphasis this week on changes in and around your home. Get everyone to suggest what he or she would like to see done. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A matter you thought had been settled might still produce surprises. Best advice: Continue to gather facts to bolster your position just in case you need to produce them quickly. BORN THIS WEEK: Your wisdom is only matched by your generosity, making you the sort of friend everyone hopes to have. PUZZLES SUPER TUESDAYS$6 Shows (surcharge applies to 3D only)NOW OPEN!

Its all preposterous, and the most egregious error of all is that it dares to take itself seriously in the last half hour. Rated PG-13.Black Sea (Jude Law, Scott McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn) A recently fired and bitter submarine captain (Mr. Law) takes a rogue group on a treasure hunt in the depths of the Black Sea. It doesnt always use logic, but its tense and engaging when it needs to be. Rated R.Still Alice 1/2(Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart) A 50-year-old linguistics professor (Ms. Moore) finds her life radically changed after shes diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimers disease. Its a heartbreaking story, made more palpable by a great performance from Ms. Moore and solid supporting turns from Mr. Baldwin, Ms. Stewart and Kate Bosworth. Rated PG-13.The Boy Next Door (Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Guzman, Kristen Chenoweth) Schoolteacher Claire (Ms. Lopez) is stalked by her teenage neighbor (Mr. Guzman) after they share a one-night stand. Everything about it is preposterous, and its yet another new low for Ms. Lopezs acting career. Rated R.Blackhat (Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis, Wei Tang) A cyber attack on a Chinese power plant prompts the U.S. and Chinese governments to work together to solve the crime with the help of a federal prisoner (Mr. Hemsworth). It shouldve been full of intrigue and suspense, but its really just a bore. Rated R.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 19-25, 2015 C15 LATEST FILMSFifty Shades of GreyIs it worth $10? NoHow could a movie about crazy kinky sexy be so insufferably dull? Fans of E.L. James Fifty Shades of Grey novels (who are legion) and even those who havent read the book but know of its infamy, are expecting something one step below soft core porn in exchange for their overpriced movie ticket. What theyll get is barely an erotic moment, barely anything sexy at all. Forget the relative unattractiveness of female lead Dakota Johnson, or the handsomely plain Jamie Dornan as her sex master. The real issue is the sensuality of the story, which far outweighs its sexuality. What non-readers of the book like myself expect to be a kinky S&M parlor game of sexual deviancy ends up being about two lonely souls who think they know what they want but dont allow themselves to get there. The fact that theres no ending makes it all the worse though this isnt a surprise given that its based on a trilogy. (Im willing to wager the third book gets split into two movies, which is sadly all too common these days). The plot is simple enough: Soon-to-be college graduate Anastasia Steele (Ms. Johnson) goes to the office of 27-yearold billionaire businessman Christian Grey (Mr. Gornan) to interview him for her school newspaper. He has various physical pursuits, he tells her in one of many double entendre lines throughout the film. Shes naturally smitten with his rich handsomeness. On their first date, he picks her up in his helicopter and takes her back to his place, where he quickly shows her the playroom. Oh, my, sex dungeon. Whips, handcuffs, swings, floggers you name it, Christian likes to play with it. He insists he doesnt do the girlfriend thing and only wants Ana to be the submissive to his dominant sexual persona. This is virgin territory (literally) for her, so she relents in signing the contract that specifies what he can/cannot do to her. The thing is, she actually likes him. And he might like her to, even if he doesnt know how to show it. There are reports that Ms. Johnson and Mr. Gornan hate one another, and that director Sam Taylor-Johnson and E.L. James didnt get along on the set. The chemistry between the two stars doesnt exactly sizzle, but its not awful to watch them together when theyre fully clothed. What is awful and more so, disappointing are the sex scenes, which seem oddly restrained, as if a studio censor were in the cutting room dictating what could and could not be shown. Quite a bit is implied, not all that much is shown, and what we do get is languid instead of lustful. The problem with expectation is specific anticipation, meaning if what you think is going to happen doesnt happen, it dampens your reaction even if what does happen isnt so bad. If Fifty Shades of Grey were to work as promised to its target female demographic, there would be a run of new babies born this November. But it doesnt work. Its just a lame love drama with sex toys. >>The rst draft of the script by Kelly Marcel featured more explicit sex, but Universal Pictures executives required it be toned down in order to receive an R rating, which it did. If the lm earned an NC-17 rating as Marcels script would have dictated, some theaters would refuse to show it and its box of ce prospects would be notably lessened. h g g p t t dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com

Chaos ensues as the family gathers around Bens deathbed. Im always interested in plays that have not been performed locally, Mr. Graffy says. I read it and thought it was just ridiculously funny. It a wicked comedy but for all its comedy, it just rings so true. The production features a group of actors with a range of experience, Mr. Graffy says. Trying to get a uniformity of performance from them is a challenge, but Im so amazed at how open people can be and how hard they work, he adds. One of fledgling theater companys core values is to bring productions to Naples that have never been performed here before and dont necessarily fit well with the more established companies in town, co-founder Scott Lilly says. This show fits our values one hundred percent, he says. We search for shows that are not necessarily mainstream. As for The Lyons, Mr. Lilly hopes its a show Neapolitan will not miss. Its a dysfunctional family with a dying, foul-mouthed father, a Jewish matriarch, an alcoholic daughter and a gay son, he says. Who could ask for anything more? We thought Southwest Florida must experience this one. Mr. Graffy, a Naples real estate professional, has a bachelors degree in theater from The Juilliard School. He has performed in and directed numerous shows with The Naples Players and says Lets Put On A Show Productions feels like working in a chamber piece or workshop. Back in Shakespeares day, it was just one open set, he says. The language described where you were. Ultimately, all you need are good words and good actors. I really love that idea you focus on that and youre not distracted by an ornate theater or elaborate set pieces.

Pros and cons of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) have long been a topic of discussion for both healthcare providers and female patients alike. Although the beneficial physical and psychological affects of HRT have always been clinically relevant, associated potential risks have been a concern especially involving the WHI (Womenss Health Initiative) clinical trials initiated in 1991. The WHI concerns focused on cardiovascular disease, cancer and osteoporosis in randomized women aged 50-79 years and utilized oral conjugated/synthetic equine estrogen +/progestin. The most significant endpoints were in regards to cardiovascular risk. Around that time, there was a significant decrease in women across America taking HRT and subsequently a growing trend toward more natural based alternatives to help quench their need for symptom relief (and for many to return a sense of normalcy to their lives!). Weve come a long way since that time. As with any medicine, whether Rx or OTC (over the counter) supplements, women should weigh the risks and benefits and clinical indications for their personal situation. It is true that supplemental hormones are not ideal for ALL female patients, depending on their genetic background, environmental factors and coexistent health conditions. However, this is a small subset of our population. For MANY women, HRT, or BHRT/ Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a safe and extremely beneficial option. Incidentally, the OTC self-treating supplements are not inexpensive and rarely work for any long period of time. Even OTC meds should be discussed with your doctor as they, too, can have detrimental side effects or interactions with other meds you may not realize. Most of us feel the quality of life issue is very important to us as individuals and within our interpersonal relationships. It is not necessary to suffer in ones daily life for those women in whom the indication for HRT/BHRT exists. The little blue pill epidemic may be the answer for our male counterparts, but we, too deserve our own boost when hormonal imbalance occurs! Now, if this is not an issue, then do not make it one. However, it is not a productive relationship when one partner is charged up energetically or sexually but the other could care less. This is typically not a recipe for success. Symptoms of hormonal imbalance, or the change of life include: hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, change in sleep patterns, depression/ fatigue, decreased metabolism and muscle tone, vaginal dryness and significant decrease in sexual arousal/ libido. These can come on abruptly or gradually and occur near our average age of menopause, 52, or even earlier for many women. The symptoms can be especially strong in surgical menopause patients, or in women whom have had a total hysterectomy with removal of both ovaries. This age is too early to throw in the towel if it is an issue for you! Hormonal restorative therapy has been proven in multiple trials to decrease osteoporosis and fractures, increase cognitive function, decrease colorectal cancer and improve psychological wellness and mutually beneficial sexual relations. As years have progressed since that study, many of us as clinicians have advanced our treatment regimen to include the more natural Bioidenticals as an option for our symptomatic patients. There is a long list of FDA approved medications which have proven detrimental side effects yet are still offered to patients. Why then, with theoretically little risk and great benefit, exclude women in whom HRT/BHRT is a valid treatment option? Bioidenticals are plantderived agents that are biochemically similar or identical to those produced by the ovary or body. The Rx is prepared, assembled and packaged by certified compounding pharmacists and often are custom-made for a patient according to the physicians specifications. Note, these are in fact a different category than the synthetic or conjugated HRT used during the WHI study. In addition, the routes of administering BHRT are diverse and include sublingual (dissolvable), transdermal, vaginal and sterile pellet therapy(placed by an experienced physician in the office and lasting approx 4-6mos). Recognize that much of the concern for HRT in the past related to the oral dosing. Transdermal routes have even been shown to potentially decrease the incidence of blood clots. Moreover, the N American Menopause Society (NAMS) has recognized in 2012 positive research in the Kronos Early Estrogen Prevention Study (KEEPS) in regards to cardiovascular disease. They note most importantly that low-dose HRT/BHRT in early menopause not only improves depression, anxiety and cognitive function in healthy women it does so without posing ANY cardiovascular disease risk. Great potential news for our hearts and HRT. The steroid hormones most commonly compounded in Bioidenticals include DHEA, pregnenelone, testosterone, progesterone, and estrogens. The Rx comes from your health care provider and is typically not reimbursed by insurance companies but not too costly. For many educated patients, the cost is worth their significant symptom relief and not of great concern compared with their prior costly OTC natural supplements which provided no relief. The ratio of the types of hormones in your Rx depends upon your symptoms and lab results which may be monitored intermittently. What many clinicians have grown to love, as well as our patients, is that the Rx is essentially custom-made for them. There is increased safety for women taking BHRT with respect to this ability of individualized dosing and routes of administration. More specifically, compounding has opened the door of testosterones potential benefits for many women especially with hypoactive sexual desire disorder and vaginal dryness. What a wake-up call for those of us in whom it may be indicated and in exploring the many shades or levels of fulfillment in a truly healthy relationship! I inform my patients that BHRT is not for everyone and not forever. Patient selection is key, and reassessing ones actual indications and any side effects at regular intervals is important as with any medical treatment plan. It is a team approach between you and us. The fact is, the change of life doesnt have to be in a down hill direction. Women should feel comfortable and confident discussing the option of hormonal restoration with their partner, if applicable, and their healthcare providers. Combined with healthy nutrition, lifestyle choices, regular exercise (this is a must!), good overall health maintenance and open communication in your relationships BHRT may be the compliment to your improved quality of life. Thats my theoretical point of view on the 50 shades of hormonal replacement research it, discuss it, and as with anything, make your own choices. Todays woman shouldnt simply survive, she should thrive.

Touchstone. 352 pages. Hardcover, $25.99. Ian Paine writes graphic novels about himself. His stand-in is Fatboy, a name Ian had to own in the cruel public school days of his youth. Unattractive, friendless and often repressing a desperate rage, both Ian and Fatboy relate in complex ways to a character named Priss. Ians relationship to Priss reveals the kinship of two terms: addiction and haunting. The Hollows, Ians upstate New York hometown, is haunting central. It is here where Priss is most alive. I say most alive because her quasireality is one of the books puzzles and attractions. When Ian was a child, Priss was his only friend; everyone else either bullied or ignored him. But Priss wasnt a schoolmate. She did not attend school. No one witnessed them together. Was she really there, or only in Ians head? Was Priss is Priss the imaginary friend writ large? Since Ian is the first-person narrator, credible within limits, Prisss reality for him becomes much of the time her reality for the reader. However, those in Ians world who deny her reality are credible as well. The Priss in Ians Fatboy books is a seductive femme fatale. In his memory or present vision, she is not only his age as if they had grown up together but any one of the ages she might be, even the young girl he first met. Priss seems to be a time-traveling wraith, imprisoned by rage. Ian and Priss have suffered parallel family disasters in their lives, leading the reader to suspect that Priss is a projection. Just like her, Ian/Fatboy is never very distant from a rage that leaps out at times and controls his behavior. Though he has no memory of his destructive outbreaks, their consequences are unmistakable. Who controls whom? Ian, now a success and no longer ugly and overweight, manages his anxieties with drugs. He uses them to smooth things out. At times he frees himself, but dependency returns. Narcotics allow him to do his creative work. Priss is another kind of addiction. Can addictions ever be good for you? W philJASONpkjason@comcast.net UNGER

Or only life-threatening? Good news comes into Ians life in the person of beautiful, generous Megan. She makes her version of normality shine brightly. Feeling his unworthiness, Ian is amazed at how quickly their relationship progresses. Although he cant help but reveal his many faults, Megan finds ways of accepting his excuses up to a point. Her parents cant stand him, but theres nothing new about that plot point. Shes an adult. She seems sure of herself. They grin falsely and bear it. Slowly and with many setbacks, with Priss interfering in the most threatening ways, Ian builds the better self that will be worthy of Megan. It frightens him, however, that she wishes for them to live in The Hollows. So much that Ian has striven to escape is rooted there: childhood trauma, rejection and Priss. How can this work? I wont tell you. I will tell you that the psychological and paranormal dimensions of Crazy Love You are superbly drawn, endlessly fascinating and extremely frightening. The undertow of despair might not be safe for novice word-swimmers. Furthermore, the many supporting players are brilliantly realized. These include Ians semi-loony mother (murderer of Ians younger sister), his employer who addicts him to comic books, the psychic woman whose provides useful insights and warnings, his publisher (who suggests an end to the Fatboy saga) and many others. One of Lisa Ungers great decisions was to include long, italicized sections representing whats going in the graphic novel. Imbedded in Ians narrative, they seem to have a life of their own. Ian steps in and out of his author/artist identity and through the looking glass he has created. One could argue, as Otto Rank did, that an artist is a self-cured neurotic, that the making of the artistic personality is that individuals most import creation, and that his art is his therapy. Aside from the fact that Ian also has psychotic breaks, thats not a bad lens from which to approach Crazy Love You, a book so richly textured that it can be approached in many other ways as well.

Enjoy live jazz too! mwaterfrontgrille.comWATERFRONT GRILLE Naples Finest French CuisinePrivate Parties & Catering Available upon Request KOVEL: ANTIQUESTip over a walrus for your wine BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELTo enjoy the wine lifestyle, the accessories must be as great as the vintage wine. Today, the status symbol is a wine cellar with bottles of carefully selected wine stored in racks in a room kept at the proper temperature. To go with that wine cellar a collector must also have the proper glasses, vintage corkscrews, aerators, bottle stoppers, tools and, of course, a decanter. But collectors of decanters are often not interested in wine, just in the many bottles and containers that are used to decant wine. Open a bottle, pour the contents into the decanter, let the sediment settle, then serve the wine. For centuries decanters have been glass bottles with long necks, but by the end of the 19th century, figural glass or pottery decanters became popular. Recent auctions have sold glass decanters with silver tops that are shaped like Bacchus, early musicians, dogs, waiters and even a walrus. Glass decanters shaped like large fish have been made since the 1900s. Royal Doulton made a decanter shaped like a mysterious man in a clock for Sandeman products. And some modern liquor companies make figural decanters today for colleges and special events. Add to your enjoyment of wine with a decanter collection. A walrus-shaped decanter with gilt brass trim sold recently at a Neal auction in New Orleans for $1,434. Q: I inherited my great-grandmothers Norwegian spinning wheel. The letters TAD are carved on the side and the date 816 is painted on in black. The wheel is 22 inches in diameter and has 16 carved spokes. My great-grandparents brought it with them when they emigrated from Norway. It continues to sit around & get dusty. Is it worth anything? A: Spinning wheels date back to medieval times, but most found today are 100 to 200 years old. There are several different types. The most common is the Saxony Wheel, which has the wheel at one end and the flyer at the other end and usually has three legs. Its the traditional wheel pictured in fairy tales. A Norwegian Wheel is a horizontal wheel similar to the Saxony. It may have three or four legs and is often ornately carved. The Castle Wheel is a vertical spinning wheel with the flyer above the wheel. The letters TAD could be the maker or the initials of the person it was made for. The This unusual decanter is 14 inches long and 10 inches high, large enough to hold a bottle of wine and clear enough to show the deposit of sediment at the bottom. It sold in New Orleans at a November 2014 Neal auction for $1,434.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 19-25, 2015 C25 5,000 YEARS OF CIVILIZATION LIVE ON STAGE March 30 31Barbara B.Mann Hall Ft MyersALL-NEW 2015 SHOW WITH LIVE ORCHESTRAOnline: ShenYun.com/Ft-myers BBMannPAH.com Call: 888-974-3698 239-481-4849 WITNESS THE GREAT WORKS of classical Chinese literature spring to life on stage! Through these timeless stories, Shen Yun dancers animate the heroism, inspiration, virtue, and even humor that weaves through the tapestry of traditional Chinese culture. Shen Yun brings you drama through dance like youve never seen before, oering a dash of ancient wisdom for our modern world.IN NEARLY every culture, artists have sought divine inspiration to bring meaning to their art. Today, Shen Yuns artists follow in this noble tradition, incorporating mindfulness and meditation into their lives. Many of Shen Yuns programs also carry themes and artistry that are divinely inspired. The result? A spiritual radiance that shines on stage, conveying a sense of purity and compassion that the audience can feel.PURE WISDOMWHEN THE CURTAIN goes up on a Shen Yun performance, what will you see? The radiance of the dancers. The exquisite grace of their movements. The mesmerizing display of the animated backdrops and handmade costumes. All this gives the audience an almost overwhelming sense of consummate beauty. It is a vision of loveliness not to be missed, and one that will never be forgotten.PURE BEAUTYPURE ENERGY P URE SPIRITUALITY EAMING. RADIANT. GLOWING. Thats how audiences look after a Shen Yun performance. Thunderous battle drums, dazzling choreography, and an enchanting live orchestra deliver an uplifting, dynamic experience. A Shen Yun performance isnt just something you see and hear. Its something you feel from the top of your head to the bottom of your soul. date and provenance make your spinning wheel interesting. Most spinning wheels sell for $100 to $250. They often are bought to use. Q: Id like to know how to sell Hummel figurines. I inherited 24 figurines from my mother. Some still have the price stickers on them. Are they worth anything, and if so, how do I market them? A: Hummel figurines arent as popular as they were years ago. As the older generation of collectors have died, large collections are coming on the market. Heirs are finding they are hard to sell and prices have dropped. Although some rare figurines still sell at auctions for high prices (one sold for over $900), most are sold in groups, with prices as low as $5 or $10 per figurine. The older figurines bring better prices. Age can be determined by the trademark on the bottom of the figurine. Q: We have a Howdy Doody windup band made by Unique Art in 1950. Buffalo Bob moves back and forth at the piano and Howdy Doody is standing up and dancing. What is it worth? A: The Howdy Doody windup band originally came in a box labeled Doin the Howdy Doody. Howdy Doody and Buffalo Bob were characters in a childrens TV series that originally ran from 1947 to 1960. The series became popular with college students in the late 1970s when Buffalo Bob began to lecture on campuses. The New Howdy Doody Show was produced from 1976 to 1977. This tin lithographed toy was made during the original series. The toy in good condition and in its original box sold for $741 at a recent auction. One without the box sold for $420. Q: In 1954, my mother bought a new home and had furniture custom made. My bedroom dresser and desk was light wood with a white leather-like front and gold drawer handles. I had a Zenith tube radio that had a light wood case and a white front that matched the furniture. I dont have the furniture any more, but I do have the radio (still works!) and would like to sell it. Im wondering where I could sell it and what its worth. A: Its too bad you dont still have your furniture, because the s look is in. The blond wood and sleek lines of furniture and accessories made in the 1950s and s are popular particularly with young collectors, and prices are up. Your Zenith High Fidelity tube radio fits in with the look and is worth $85 to $140. Q: I have a Reed & Barton sterling silver butterfly whistle pendant and chain my mother gave me. Its in a yellow felt pouch that reads Butterfly whistle, Reed & Barton sterling in red letters. I also have the original box. What is this worth? A: Reed & Barton ma de this butterfly whistle-pendant in the early 1970s, along with an owl whistle-pendant and an Irish shamrock good luck whistle-pendant. Butterfly whistle-pendants without the packaging have sold online for about $30-$40; sellers with the packaging ask, but dont often get, up to $200.

Please tell me Ill get to enjoy new episodes for years to come. Paula T., via emailA: I am happy to tell you that youll get at least two more seasons of funny from Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. IFC announced that it has picked up the hit comedy for seasons six and seven, each encompassing 10 halfhour episodes. Q: I wanted to ask about two ABC shows that I very much miss: Red Widow and Park Avenue. I enjoyed both shows, especially the eye candy in Red Widow, and wondered if theres any chance theyll be aired again Marsha R., NaplesA: Both ABC series premiered in the 2012-13 season Park Avenue in September and Red Widow as a midseason replacement to much hullabaloo and fanfare; however, both were canceled due to low ratings. Of the two series, Red Widow is available on DVD, in case youre feeling nostalgic and want to relive the drama and intrigue... and eye candy. Q: I truly hope the writers and producers of Galavant know what a superb show it is. I laugh so hard and watch each episode several times since there are so many jokes and bits every second. I thank them for this wonderful production. If it comes out on DVD, I will buy it! Nancy M., VeniceA: I know a lot of people who feel the way you do, Nancy, and they are all hoping for a second season, as Im sure you are. If anything, its just nice to have the option to watch a series that is inventive and unique. I believe in rewarding people for thinking outside the box, and I hope ABC does too. While Galavant started out really strong, it slipped in numbers as the limited series went on. However, since it is a limited series (meaning each season has fewer episodes than a normal series, and it can air at any time during the season as a place-filler or replacement), its low numbers wont necessary nails the coffin shut. Id still place this show very much on the bubble. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Feb. 20-22. The free event brings nationally recognized health and nutrition experts to town to lecture on a variety of topics regarding natural foods and health, from Supersonic Sauerkraut to chi nei tsang (Chinese internal organ massage) and organic farming compared to industrial or conventional farming. This is about empowering people about issues and choices that affect your health, Michael Monteleone, the stores head buyer, says. Lets say you have a cold. Do you take an antibiotic, or do you realize there are herbs out there that are less invasive and do more than symptom suppression? The summit begins at 6 p.m. Friday with a screening of a short film, Frank Oakes: Awakening of an Organic Prophet in the Food & Thought courtyard. The late Mr. Oakes was the founder of the market/caf. At 7:30 p.m. the first lecture of the summit, The High Cost of Cheap Food, will be presented by Charles Marble. Saturdays presentations include How Organic Farming Can Feed and Save the World by professor Kathleen Delate of Iowa State University; Fable of Labels, by Linda Celauro; and Raw Food for Cooked Food Lovers by Cherie Soria and Dan Ladermann of the Living Light Culinary Institute. At 4 p.m. the play A Tale of Two Agricultures will be presented. Other presentations continue into the evening and include Genetic Roulette: GMOs The Gamble of Our Lives by Jeffrey Smith, followed by a panel discussion about GMOs Where Do We Go From Here? The Sunday lineup includes Essential Oils for Home and Health by Catherine Via; Health Sovereignty: Unlock the Power to Heal by Robert Scott Bell; and The Alchemy of Disease: Transmuting Burden into Blessing by Ken Fried. Presentations begin at 9:30 a.m. Saturday and Sunday on two stages: in the auditorium at Naples High School and in the Nirvana Mattress storefront next door to Food & Thought in the Gateway of Naples plaza. Admission is free; seating is first come, first served. Call Food & Thought at 2132222 or visit foodandthought.com for the complete schedule. Our hope is that (the summit) will bring people here and they can make their own decision, Mr. Monteleone says. If you put dirty gas in your car, your car isnt going to run very well.

Turns out she had been there once before and enjoyed the Gardenburger veggie patty. Being the burger lover that I am, I offered no resistance to her suggestion. As a Red Robin first-timer, I was overwhelmed by the menu. It took me a few minutes to decide on the D.G.B. (and to make a note to go back for the Burnin Love, the Bleu Ribbon and the Whiskey River BBQ versions). My D.G.B. was so much more than a burger. The flavorful patty was topped with oven-roasted tomatoes, a smear of savory roasted garlic aioli (and more on the side, which I appreciated) and a pile of fresh arugula that had been tossed in a citrus olive oil dressing, all in between a perfectly toasted ciabatta bun. The tasty combination assuaged my taste for beef and satisfied my need for greens. Along with a handful of fries that came with the D.G.B. and the stack of onion rings that my friend and I shared, it made for a most filling meal. One more thing: We had neither time nor room for dessert, but I think a trip to Red Robin just for something sweet is in my future. The Chocolate Fruffles (brownies, dipped in dark chocolate and bejeweled with sea salt and sugar crystals, and served with whipped cream and a side of berry ketchup) and the Towering Doh! Rings (pieces of doughnut/croissant stacked and served with hot fudge and more of the aforementioned berry dipping sauce) are calling my name. Cindy Pierce email@example.com

The styles and varietals run from high quality cabernets (California) to gorgeous pinot noirs (Oregon) to big, bold syrahs (Washington). And the region extends up to British Columbia, as well. Actually, the whole Pacific Northwest area has been growing grapes for a long time, but they used to make juice and jelly out of them. Its been only since the mid-1970s that theyve become serious about fine wine. The last 30 years have seen a boom. Basically, the general weather pattern is the same as in Burgundy, a fact that pinot noir growers absolutely adore. However, the warm Pacific current that brings the rains is extremely variable, so vintages are a bit more important in that area. The most developed region is the Willamette valley in Oregon, and its a perfect place for wine tourism. Just like in Napa or Sonoma, you can drive along a few central roads, hitting one vineyard tasting room after another. However, Washington is another story. The eastern part of the state is desert, which is perfect for growing thick-skinned red grapes, like cabernet, syrah and some Spanish varietals. The bad news is that wine country is on the other side of the Cascade Mountains, and a tough trip from the population centers in the west. Result: almost all wineries have tasting rooms in the major cities, like Seattle, and arent all that set up for tourists at the winery. Too bad, because part of wine appreciation is drinking it where its made, and tasting rooms in some downtown area, no matter how nicely decorated, just dont have the same charm. The folks in Washington dont stop at reds. Weather conditions force the grapes to ripen early, if they ripen at all, so growers have had a lot of luck with zippy, acidic wines, like sauvignon blanc. And, since the climate is a bit like the Alsace region between France and Germany, youll find some great rieslings from the area. The semi-ripening of those white grapes yields wines that are lean and acidic, with lower alcohol. Chateau Ste. Michelles Eroica Riesling is very popular, in a semi-sweet style. The Columbia Valley, and the several vineyard regions around it (Walla Walla, Horse Heaven Hills, Rattlesnake Hills, etc.) get about 8 inches of rain a year, which makes irrigation absolutely vital. Theres lots of sun in the summer, and early onset of cold weather. Its a terrible place to grow anything but apples and wine grapes. Plus, the area is vast. The Columbia Valley appellation alone covers almost half the state, and some of it spills over into Oregon. So there are hotels and restaurants, a wine tourism industry, and almost 700 registered wineries, but its a heck of a ride to get out there. It may not be worth the trip to eastern Washington, but the states wines are definitely worth a trip to the supermarket or your favorite store. First of all, in addition to some nice chardonnays and elegant rieslings, the areas long suit is big, mouthwatering reds. The region grows more than 80 types of grapes, but you should look mainly for cabernet sauvignon, syrah, and (if you can find them) wines made from cabernet franc and even nebbiolo, which is the primary grape in the big expensive barolos from northern Italy. My favorites of the week Chehalem Riesling This wine offers green apple, lime, and floral aromas and flavors. Theres lots of white fruit and spice, too. Chehalem makes an unoaked Chardonnay called INOX thats well worth a try. Milbrandt Traditions Cabernet Butch Milbrandt and his family have been doing a sensational job with the big reds. This wine, which is truly bargainpriced, gives you loads of black cherry, blackberry, chocolate and spice. A favorite around our house and its about $12. Byron Chardonnay 2013 Santa Barbara County Its a bright straw color in the glass, with aromas of red apples and fainter hints of white flowers. Its medium-bodied, and on the palate the apple flavor gives way to lemon, lime, and orange. Its acidic, more like a sauvignon blanc, but itll work just fine with shellfish and any dishes that you might squeeze a lemon over. WW 88-89 points, around $16 Byron Pinot Noir 2013 Santa Barbara County Light and transparent, it offers aromas of earth, smoke and mineral on the nose. The predominant flavors are of bright red fruits and strawberry, with a long finish. WW 86-87 points, around $19. jerry GREENFIELDvino@floridaweekly.com

CUISINERustic and humble, Lapas offers a taste of Costa RicaCosta Rica means rich coast in Spanish, but when it comes to the republics food, the adjectives that come to mind tend toward the less aspirational. Think rustic, humble, uncomplicated. In fact, before visiting Lapas Costa Rican Bistro in Bonita Springs, I had to do a little research into this little-known cuisine. In 25 years of dining around Southwest Florida, I dont recall ever coming across a restaurant specializing in food from this Central American country, which generally straddles the cultures of indigenous Mesoamericans and 16th century Spanish colonizers. Gallo pinto, the food you are most likely to encounter in a cursory Internet search for signature dishes, hardly stands out from a host of other Spanish-influenced cuisines around the world. Its black beans and rice. Whether or not Costa Rican food can be said to achieve a distinctive cultural identity, the rustic, humble and uncomplicated food that Lapas is serving up certainly merits attention. In addition to the expected homespun empanadas, tacos and arroz con pollo, youll find more ambitious creations such as citrus-laced ceviche, chile rellenos stuffed with sweet corn and meat, and a few fish entrees with tropically themed sauces. And you wont go home hungry. Many dishes come with the aforementioned beans and rice as well as plantains and choice of soup or salad. Prices are very reasonable. My Panamanian-American friend and I started out with a pair of Cerveza Imperials ($3.95), a Costa Rican lager with a nice malty finish. Beer was mightily needed after navigating the nightmarish seasonal traffic on U.S. 41 to find Lamas in a corner of Bay Crossings plaza that you cant see from the road ( you might be familiar with the obscure location if you ever patronized the previous tenant, Thai Star). Once inside youll find a quiet, roomy bar and dining room with cream-colored walls and dark wood trim. The sparse decorations include framed mirrors and prints of parrots. The staff is warm and welcoming, chatty without being too invasive. After we settled in, we asked the server to help clarify which dishes on the menu were considered traditional Tico fare. We decided to start with ceviche ($11.95) and a couple of empanadas ($2.75 each). The former was a big bowl of diced white fish marinated in limejuice and served with freshly made tortilla chips. The chilled salad was laced with onions, tomatoes and fresh cilantro, all of which achieved a nice balance of flavor. In a couple of respects, it was distinct from other ceviches Ive tasted: the lack of chilies, which usually add bursts of raw heat; and the addition of diced avocado, which brings a creamy texture to contrast the crisp vegetables and tender fish. (I also liked that the server gave us extra chips when we decided to take the leftovers home.) The empanadas seemed a tad skimpy on filling, but they were obviously handmade, crisp and flaky. The chicken version was stuffed with succulent white meat, while the ground beef turnover was rather plain. They were served with sour cream and pico de gallo for garnishing. The main course arrived a bit prematurely, even though we ordered the entrees later than the starters. With our waitresses hands full, we had to shuffle dishes to make room for the new plates. The Chirripo chicken ($12.95), named for the highest mountain in Costa Rica, featured something called Grandmas secret sauce, which turned out to be a light, slightly sweet stew of tomatoes, corn and other vegetables. It clung to a copious amount of shredded chicken in the bowl, making for one hearty and tasty dish. The big square platter also held a handful of fresh salad with dressing on the side, a mound of white rice, a bowl of inky black beans and several perfectly sauted sweet plantains. In mass and range of flavors and textures, this was an impressive entree. The arroz con camarones ($16.50), or rice with shrimp, hit fewer high notes, but the dish contained a truly generous amount of large, succulent shellfish (about 10). Peas, corn and diced red peppers added color and flavor to the creamy yellow rice that enveloped the juicy shrimp; it was sort of a cross between arroz con pollo and paella, but rather one-dimensional. Perhaps restrained seasoning is one of the veiled hallmarks of Costa Rican cooking. Tender and mild black beans, salsa and a pile of potato chips accompanied the dish. Stuffed with rice and beans, we could barely think about dessert. But a deliciously creamy flan de caramel awaited ($4.50), and it was worth the effort it took to finish it. Costa Rica might not boast the most flamboyant of cuisines, but theres something to be said for the rustic, humble and uncomplicated food found at Lapas. drew STERWALDcuisine@floridaweekly.com Lapas Costa Rican Bistro>> Hours: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday. >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Appetizers, $2.75-$11.95; entrees, $8.50-$29.95 >> Beverages: Beer and wine served. >> Specialties of the house: Costa Rican cuisine >> Volume: Low >> Parking: Attached lot >> Website: lapascr.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: 26251 S.
