www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 26-APRIL 1, 2015 Bring Your Highest Expectations LIVINGSTON ROADPINE RIDGE ROAD EXIT 107WHIPPORWILL LANE N COMMENTARY Dogging it My little brother crossed his wires as a young man by studying both anthropology and psychology. He never quite recovered from the experience, but it gave him some interesting ideas. One of them married up God and dogs, of which he always kept a tail-wagging representative. Since dogs came into the human experience suddenly and inexplicably about 50,000 years ago (wolf bones appear at inhabited human sites of the time), perhaps they were put there by God, he conjectured. Do you notice, he asked, how dogs are always watching you? Often unseen or ignored, they always seem to be studying your progress through a moment or a day or a life. You tend to do things in front of dogs you might not do in front of people. You wake with them, eat with them, work with them, play with them and sleep with them. They know everything about you. Before we learned to domesticate them, they sat out beyond the circle of firelight and studied us, even then. Perhaps their eyes were not watching God, my brother suggested (paraphrasing Zora Neale Hurston), perhaps their eyes were Gods, watching us recording our behavior implacably, inscrutably and continually. Gods forward observers, if you will. My brother likes to think of himself as more rational, so he handed the idea off to me, suggesting I weave a tidy fiction out of it. But I figured it would take a lot of weaving by somebody who knew a lot more about both dogs and anthropology than I do, not to mention fiction writing, so I let the idea sit there for about 20 years. And then I moved in with a bunch of dogs. Or more accurately, I let them move in with me. Somehow. Do not expect me to explain this process reasonably. I like to think of myself as rational, too. But moving in with dogs we now have six of them is a surefire way to flag yourself as completely and unmistakably irrational. I think it had to do with an unfathomable human calculus that combined pleasure and grief and greed and need and imperative the imperative to help something obviously in trouble. It probably had to do with a lot of other things, too, but unlike my brother I didnt study psychology its nothing but palmetto scrub, to me so my self-awareness ends there. On my own behalf, let me point out that Im not the majority shareholder on our family dog-board. But Im not evading responsibility by putting it off on the other voters, either. No, I voted with the crowd pretty much every time. We had a dog, one dog, a smart, funny Catahoula leopard named Sally. And then my youngest son, Nash, found a tough little ochre cow cur under his Christmas tree. He called her Smoke. Two dogs, two kids, two parents it was the Family Appropriate (the FA), by contemporary standards. Sure, there were four cats, various chickens, the guineas and geese and ducks and rabbits and a paint mare, along with the sorriest donkey since Joseph and Mary rode into Bethlehem, but never mind all that. They were and they remain mere distractions compared to dogs. Then Sally got up one morning, breathed hard for about an hour, let go of her bowels in the back of my car, and died in my arms as I carried her across the parking lot and into the vets, followed by my family. For that last hour, though, she watched us intently, recording not only our actions on her behalf but the quality and resolve in our love. As they followed me, her brown eyes appeared no sadder and no more alarmed than a dogs eyes ever do, I realized. They have a knowing look unmatched by any other domestic creatures, I believe a gaze shimmering with intelligence and uncomplaining gravity, even in the merriest of times. Mostly, dogs understand mortality. Ive decided that they actually reflect on it, unlike cats who think its a joke on somebody else, and completely unlike cows or horses, who dont have a clue. Even a young dog understands death, and its potential to enter a day as suddenly and unceremoniously as a light breeze, better than anything else, probably even including people. But dogs still manage to live exuberantly in the moment. That instruction right there makes having dogs worth any trouble they might cause. They do cause some, too. Smoke disappeared in a storm one night, forever, and we still dream about her. But by that time, to make up for Sallys loss, wed gotten others. And to make up for Smokes loss we took on still more, becoming a canine camp of the abandoned, the wandering and the orphaned. And now every morning when we get up, there they are: tails wagging, muscles quivering, bodies poised in eager anticipation. Watching us. And now my brothers idea no longer seems like a mere confection. Note: A version of this column first appeared in 2009. The Williams family now owns five dogs and a Bremen-town gaggle of assorted creatures too numerous and embarrassing to list. i a e m t o roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Tom Cotton hasnt been frog-marched from the Russell Senate Office Building yet. To believe the Arkansans harshest critics, thats only because felonious traitors dont get the punishment they deserve. Cotton wrote an open letter to the leaders of Iran pointing out true and obvious things about our constitutional system, and the world came crashing down on his head. Disgracing the Senate, per a hyperventilating Vice President Joe Biden, was the least of his supposed offenses. He was aiding Iranian hard-liners, violating the Logan Act against subverting U.S. foreign policy and committing an act of treason. If there were any doubt about the latter, the New York Daily News ran a picture of him and fellow Republican signatories of the letter on its front page with the subtle headline TRAITORS. Cottons alleged sedition is hard to fathom. Its not as though he wrote secret letters to the Iranians (thats what President Barack Obama has made a practice of doing). Its not as though he traveled to a foreign country to glad-hand a foreign thug in an express effort to undermine the presidents foreign policy (thats what then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi did when she went to Damascus and met with Bashar Assad). Cotton wrote a letter and posted it on his website. As Brian Beutler of The New Republic pointed out, the letter is functionally indistinguishable from an op-ed. The contents of Cottons letter shouldnt have been news to anyone. It is inarguable that as a matter of domestic law a subsequent president can get out of the agreement at will and Congress can pass laws in contravention of the agreement, if a president will sign them. If these are things the Iranians dont know, shouldnt someone tell them? The foreign-policy debate in the Age of Obama is the world turned upside down. In the presidents transposition of the norms of American foreign policy, inviting the leader of a close ally to address Congress is an affront, and forging a to put it gently highly generous deal with an enemy is such an urgent necessity that no one should say a discouraging word. A more confident administration would have brushed off Speaker John Boehners invitation to Bibi Netanyahu, as well as the Cotton letter. The Obama administration is so defensive because it has a lot to be defensive about. It has been outnegotiated by the Iranians. Once, we wanted to prevent Iran from having a nuclear-weapons capability. Once, we wanted zero enrichment, and so did the United Nations. Those goals have long since been abandoned by an Obama administration desperate for any deal so it can include an opening to Iran among the presidents legacy achievements. So, here is my own seditious foray into interfering with the conduct of U.S. foreign policy:To Whom It May Concern in Tehran, You are unlikely to ever encounter someone this weak and credulous again in the Oval Office. The president used to say that no deal is better than a bad deal. Now, that line is inoperative. Its any deal is better than no deal, and woe to anyone who dares say otherwise. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.The perplexing staying power of Sen. Bill Nelson It could be the election that pits the Space Cadet against the Astronaut. While everyone and his brother is fixated on the 2016 presidential election, a recent item in the Tampa Bay Times has me dreaming of the Florida U.S. Senate race in 2018. Here is a snippet of what the Times reported: (Florida Gov. Rick) Scott, 62, has told several top Republican fundraisers that hes interested in running for U.S. Senate. It would be in 2018, when Democratic incumbent Bill Nelsons third term ends... Yes, the impossibly loopy Gov. Scott (the Space Cadet in this scenario) might challenge Sen. Nelson (the Astronaut), who in 1986, when he was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, spent six days aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia as a NASAtrained payload specialist. I realize that 2018 is a ways down the road, and a lot can happen between now and then, and it should be noted that Sen. Nelson will be 76 years old in when his next election rolls around. But I dont believe that age would be a factor. After all, John McCain was 72 when he ran for president in 2008, and he had battled cancer off and on for years. Sen. Nelson is known as a fitness fanatic who shows no signs of slowing down. Even if all of this turns out to be nothing more than the idle chatter of political junkies, it serves a useful purpose if it focuses attention on Sen. Nelson, who is the most interesting and enigmatic political figure in Florida.While incendiary Republicans like Gov. Scott, state Attorney General Pam Bondi and Sen. Marco Rubio grab the headlines, Sen. Nelson quietly goes about his business. By all rights, Floridas voters should have thrown Bill Nelson out of office long ago. But they havent. He is a former state treasurer, and served from 1979 to1991 in the U.S. House of Representatives. In 2000, he was elected to the U.S. Senate. His biggest political misstep came in 1990, when he challenged Lawton Chiles for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination. Mr. Chiles, who died in 1998, handily dispatched Sen. Nelson in that race. But even a casual student of Florida politics knows that defeat at the hands of the immensely popular and capable Mr. Chiles leaves no black mark. Florida is a state that seemingly grows more conservative by the hour. To be labeled a progressive or even a conservative Democrat, for that matter has become the kiss of death, politically speaking, in the Sunshine State. Yet here sits Sen. Nelson (a bona fide progressive Democrat), winning election after election. Sen. Nelson is pro-choice. He favors restrictions on gun ownership. He supported Obamacare. He supports the resumption of diplomatic relations with Cuba. No one would ever accuse him of being a toady to any one group or political philosophy, though. Sen. Nelson, for example, broke with other progressive Democrats and attended the speech that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave to Congress. He opposed extending the Bush-era tax cuts, but on the other side of the coin he has called for reducing or even eliminating the estate tax. In its 2013 rankings (the most recent I could find), Americans for Democratic Action a liberal organization that monitors the voting records of members of congress said that 85 percent of Sen. Nelsons votes were in line with its philosophy. By contrast, only 5 percent of Sen. Rubios votes were pleasing to the ADA. The American Conservative Union (ADAs counterpart on the political right) agreed with only 32 percent of the Sen. Nelsons votes, while Sen. Rubios ranking was a perfect 100 percent. How Sen. Nelson continues to flourish in contemporary Florida politics is something of a mystery. He swims against the current. Yes, hes immensely likable, but other moderate or progressive politicians who possess the same pleasing personal traits are ground to dust by the ruthless and unrelenting right-wing crazies who have hijacked the states political structure. As the last remaining Democrat to hold statewide office, Sen. Nelson must tread cautiously. The late Tom Slade, who once headed the Republican Party of Florida, was on the mark a few years back when he described Sen. Nelson in this manner: Hes not excessively out of the mainstream philosophically. Hes tiptoed just as close to the middle of the line as he can get. If 2018 does indeed bring us a headto-head contest of Rick Scott against Bill Nelson, my money is on the guy who has actually been into space, not the one who is just plain spacey.

Sam Sewell is also president of the Theological Center in Naples and a member of Mensa and the Sigma Delta Chi Honor Society. A frequent guest on my show, he also provides commentary on mental health and religious issues to several media outlets. Sam was born in Randalia, Iowa, and was the first member of his family to be born in a hospital. The family moved to Waterloo when Sam was 7. He hated going to school until he attended college, he says, because he found it boring. I made life miserable for my teachers, he says. I would skip school to go to the library so I could learn. He joined the Navy after high school and began his undergraduate studies in psychology through the Navy Tuition Aid Program. He attended the United States Armed Forces Institute, the Naval Aviation Academy and the University of Puerto Rico before finally earning his bachelors degree in 1964 from the University of Southwest Louisiana. After his duty in the Navy, he did his graduate work at the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 1965. During a summer in the north woods of Minnesota, Sam realized that the behavioral sciences were useful but not sufficient enough to satisfy his need to be a professional people helper. So he attended St. Pauls Theological Seminary and Union Center for Ministerial and Religious Studies, where he earned a doctorate as a pastoral psychotherapist. He was ordained in 1970. Sam moved to Naples in 1984 and is a long-time member of Moorings Presbyterian Church, where he teaches Biblical scholarship. He was also a catalyst for legally establishing properly credentialed clergy as mental health professionals in the state of Florida. A life member of Mensa, the international high IQ society, he serves as gifted youth coordinator for the local chapter. Working with gifted people is very rewarding, he says. Some individuals have a big brain, but never got a users manual. We provide the users manual. Sams hobbies include aviation and muscle cars. Hes especially proud of Black Beauty, his 1981 Volvo Bertone Coupe that can reach 60 mph from a full stop in 5.8 seconds. Sam and his wife, Bunny (who is also a pastoral psychotherapist), met in 1989 when she was a guest at a wedding he was officiating in Goodland. As they prepare to celebrate their 25th anniversary, the two are partners in everything they do. Through Best Self USA (a practice Sam opened in Kansas before moving to Naples), the Sewells and their associates provide counseling as well as executive coaching and management training. Not everyone needs psychotherapy, Sam says. Most problems can be solved by learning skills. Solution-focused education costs less money and is faster than psychotherapy. Sometimes all people need is to learn how to do it right.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 26-APRIL 1, 2015 was going on. People near him were taking pictures with cell phones and sending emails or putting up Facebook and Twitter posts, but that didnt help Mr. Gaddis and his family. And it didnt help anybody else who wasnt on the receiving end of that sudden eruption of on-site news delivered long before print or television reporters could reach the site and patch together reports. NewsByMe is his response, he says an app with the potential to revolutionize the news business and help people in the process. Unlike any other app available today, NewsByMe is solely based on the geolocation of users or customers and what they deem important, anywhere in the world. It allows anyone with a smart phone to report events around them in words, photos and video. Those reports will then appear within seconds on the electronic maps of other customers who have designated an interest in the general vicinity of that location. No traditional news media can match it or come even close, and it bypasses the limitations of such important social media as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr or Instagram. Typically, customers who download the app will select a radius of one to 50 miles around a point of interest to them their homes, for example, the schools or colleges their children attend, their businesses, their friends and families, or their hometowns. Or maybe a region into which theyre traveling. What theyre getting amounts to a precision instrument, a crowd-sourced, person-to-person app design Mr. Gaddis describes as radar for social news. Its also a bid by his team to become a big fish in a very big national and international pond.Big fish, big pondNewsByMe, which was released in an Open Public Beta version last week with an official app launch next month, brings together what may be the two most formidable weapons in the rapidly shifting history of news reporting and event awareness a smartphone and an alert human being. Not a trained media human being. Not an anchor, an analytical news writer, a spot-news reporter or an editor who abridges news reports for pay. Just one observant soul, now known in the trade as a citizen journalist, who can quickly summon the app, touch off a quick photo or video, write a few words about the event for the benefit of others in the area, and hit send. Such unvarnished reporting has happened for years on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, of course, and relatively agile media outlets have taken limited advantage of it. But stories reported in those socialmedia ecosystems (to use a word captured from biology by news techies) get shared only by networks of friends, at first. Those who are not friends will not find out quickly. Which provides an opening for NewsByMe, if it can seize that opportunity, suggests Sree Sreenivasan. One of the most celebrated gurus of tech-equipped journalism in the United States, Mr. Sreenivasan is chief digital officer of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and formerly the associate dean and now adjunct professor of journalism at Columbia Universitys graduate School of Journalism, in New York. He frames the current playing field this way: Apps that allow citizen reporting, citizen photography, and so on, are a part of the news ecosystem these days and will continue to play a critical role. The key is whether they can be the go-to choice when someone has video or news to share. We, who are existing big players, with big megaphones, tend to dominate UGC (User Generated Content). Places like CNNs iReport and the Guardian (based in Britain) and other major media outlets are going to continue to solicit such material. That presents the immediate challenge to Mr. Gaddis and his team, suggests Mr. Sreenivasan. What NewsByMe and apps like it need to do is be faster, easier and simpler than the big players and provide some other user benefit that makes them an attractive option immense geographic or demographic penetration, perhaps; or best-in-class security and privacy protection. Other news-centric apps, some more successful than others BreakingNews, News360, Flipboard, Banjo, CircaNews, along with apps newly developed by traditional media outlets to enlist audiences in their product sourcing generally rely on aggregations of news and information harvested from people or the web and molded to the tastes of their customers. Or, they work only within a restricted audience or circulation range. Sometimes that has proven effective. The way I first learned about the Boston Marathon bombing while walking down the street in Chicago was (on a smart-phone) with CircaNews, recalls Mark Stencel, a digital fellow at the Poynter Institute and National Public Radios former managing editor for digital news. (Mr. Stencel has stepped away from that job to write a novel and pursue other interests, he says.) We used Twitter and videos as a major force for a lot of the Arab Spring coverage. And in the Haiti earthquake it was quite clear immediately that this was a devastating earthquake, but nobody had reporters there. So the first images most of the media saw and used were sent by international aid workers already working in Haiti. Satellite images. We felt comfortable using those images because social media provided a verification tool you could look back through that persons trail and see that they were who they said they were. NewsByMe, on the other hand, is uniquely location-based and ferociously community oriented, says Mr. Gaddis. And it works anywhere in the country or the world, and in any language; the development team has been testing the app for a couple of months in Florida, in New York, Iowa and San Francisco, and in London, Paris, Thailand, India and Japan. Next month, the team will introduce NewsByMe at MobileWeek 2015 in New York City, a big-tent circus for the latest in technological innovations. The techie equivalent of the Detroit auto show, MobileWeek is presenting Mr. Gaddis as a featured speaker. Mass media neglects street-level news, he says, foreshadowing some of what he might say at MobileWeek. And traditional media is a traffic cop: it gets a report, it sends a reporter, it brings a report back to an editor, they check the sources and facts, and they get it presented. With NewsByMe, were eliminating that. News administrators will monitor posts on NewsByMe and retain the ability to remove them or the user if theyre demonstrably false or illegal, he notes. But for the most part, community interest will determine content and community scrutiny will help edit out misconstrued or patently false reports and mere rumors.How it worksWhat happens when a single user posts a report on the app, therefore, is a disruptive innovation in journalism, explains Mr. Gaddis, the CEO of NewsByMe and a co-founder of Florida Weekly. First, the reported event is posted to a server, and instantly an electronic map beacon is dropped at that specific location. Although any customer in the world with a smart phone can quickly skate across the map of continents, countries, states, counties, cities right down to parochial neighborhoods to see whats happening elsewhere, every customer who has selected a radius that includes that event location is immediately notified by the map beacon, and can see the report on the NewsByMe map. Other reports of the event are then joined in a storyline. Events pushed the most events with the highest number of reports from people on the scene will be ranked in ascending order. Only when reports of an event stop filing in to the server and the community deems them unimportant are they moved to the archive. An accident or a traffic backup? A neighborhood crime or a fire? A delay or incident at an airport? A school incident, a party in a dormitory room, a celebrity dining in the restaurant down the street, a river jumping its banks, a police radar team hiding near an intersection? Instantly the report appears for every other customer using the NewsByMe app within a prescribed radius selected by customers. Many of these events might never be reported by traditional media by print, television or radio, including outlets with strong digital news components. And most major events, including tragedies, trouble or dangers to a community will be reported first by people on the scene, and not by traditional media. A shop owner on Fifth Avenue in Naples, or First Street in Fort Myers or at The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens or for that matter a visitor to mid-town Manhattans Broadway theater district might pick a radius of a mile, for example. But a person living in western North Carolina or Wyoming might pick a 20-mile or a 50-mile radius in which to be notified of events reported around them through NewsByMe. The monetizing of this venture is a relatively simple model, notes Mr. Gaddis. Advertisers will pay fees based on a graduated scale of geographic distance in which their advertisements will appear: one fee for a mile, another fee for 10, 20, or 40 miles, or for any other distance.The skeptics and the realistsAll the preeminent apps that exist today the trailblazers and the big money makers faced sharp critics and skeptics as they appeared in the world; both Facebook and Twitter, for example. Ditto for NewsByMe. These have been tried over and over and standalone apps never work, says John Biggs, east coast editor of TechCrunch. No one except true weirdos would download them. Its better to simply aggregate say Facebook and Instagram feeds and build out news gathering that way. But others dont see it that way. Before Facebook, there was Myspace, recalls Arabella DeLucco, executive director of GirlDevWeek in San Francisco and a former reporter and web-NEWSBYMEFrom page 1

And Myspace, thought by some to be unimpeachable, didnt pin down its opportunity sufficiently, nor did it adjust as Facebook arrived in a storm of skeptics to seize the opportunity. Myspace quickly lost its dominant market position. NewsByMes competitive edge may be why Millie Tran, a writer for BuzzFeed, which used the image of the dress that created society-wide arguments over color and perception (was it blue and gold or black and blue?) a couple of weeks ago, was unwilling to talk about NewsByMe. But that very edge, perhaps, is also why Ms. DeLucco wont dismiss NewsByMe out of hand. She characterized the new app last month as one of the best pre-launched apps Ive ever seen. And in conversation this week, she also praises its role as a likely patron of citizen reporting. It brings back the ability of people to be journalists and to practice the values (of street-level reporting) themselves, she notes. Thats similar to what happened in the old days of American journalism, says Mark Stencel. A lot of what people are trying to do is an evolution of traditional reporting. To go back and read historic newspapers is to see pages full of articles written by readers of that publication. And verification (of facts and sources) is a challenge that goes back at least as far as Ben Franklin. The 16-year-old Benjamin Franklin was hired as an apprentice printer by his brother James, who refused to publish Bens articles in his popular newspaper, the Boston-based New England-Courant, explains Mr. Stencel. So Ben adopted a nom de plume along with the middle-aged persona of a woman he made up, Mrs. Silence Dogood. Under her byline, the young citizen journalist wrote 15 letters, publishing one every two weeks in the Courant and creating a character so popular that she even received proposals of marriage. When James found out, however, Ben had to abandon his apprenticeship and flee to Philadelphia. But even Ben Franklins level of determination isnt going to be enough in itself for success, suggests Ms. DeLucco. One reason a lot of apps fail is that they try to aggregate, she explains. Although NewsByMe appears to solve that problem it wont aggregate news from other sites it is also facing the mentality of this industry, she says. This app is really cool, but that doesnt guarantee anything. When youre not starting off in Silicon Valley well, theyre tribal, there. They have each others backs. Silicon Valley or not, there are three keys to succeeding for mobile news apps, says Mr. Stencel: Audience participation, in which they contribute; the hyper-local news challenge; and the app economy. He compares an app store such as Apple to a major company that can control what books appear in print, and which succeed. Apps are a hugely important part of mobile storytelling, but app stores are the equivalent of publishers, he explains they have to take a strong interest in you if youre going to succeed. Its powerful when it catches on, but its not that easy to catch on, he adds. Putting those three things together is like trying to find the North Pole. It can be done, in other words, but not without temerity, skill and persistence, plus a little luck. What the NewsByMe authors have going for them, however, is a rich history of citizen reporting in American journalism, along with rapid technological change and the awakening of new appetites for information delivered from other-than-traditional, corporate-controlled sources, suggests Mr. Sreenivasan. As for the traditional notion of journalism, theres little of that left anymore, he explains. Everythings changing at hyper-speed and the best organizations are already using user generated content in smart ways. I prefer my news from organizations that use a savvy combination of both kinds of content by news pros and the public. At the end of the day, I am not willing to use citizen dentistry or citizen surgery, but I am happy to get a little citizen reporting mixed in with my professional news.

GULFVIEWDENTISTRY.COM LOCATED IN THE FRENCH QUARTER 501 Goodlette Road North Suite B202 Naples, FL 34102 GUEST COMMENTARYThe power of believing in girls BY MARIANNE KEARNSSpecial to Florida WeeklyShe disobeyed authority. She was angry all the time. She picked fights with other students just for just looking at her. She was a problem. Thats the label she was given at an early age, and she long ago decided to meet the low expectations people had of her. Her teachers had completely given up on her, and her family was exhausted and rapidly losing hope themselves. Everyone knew that she would end up in jail or even dead if she continued down the path she was on. What they didnt know and couldnt see was that, at only 15 years old, she was quietly dying on the inside. She was not acting out of anger or willfulness; she was acting out of fear and helplessness. She was being sexually assaulted on a regular basis and had been since she was a little girl by someone she should have been able to trust. She told no one because she didnt want to cause them any pain. So, instead of asking for help, her private tears became fuel for her public rage. She is a real girl, one of the more than 35,000 whose stories of victimization, shame, guilt, and anger form the fabric of the history of PACE Center for Girls. This girl found PACE, and it was here that she found a place filled with people who looked past her behavior to see her potential. With the daily assurance of unyielding love and support, she found her voice and finally exposed what was happening to her. She was able to acknowledge the trauma that was driving her behavior, tell her parents what was happening and protect herself. At PACE she was able to break through. Today, she is studying to take the bar exam after having completed law school. PACE Center for Girls has successfully transformed the lives of Floridas most vulnerable girls since 1985. Our philosophy is simple: We never stop believing in girls. At PACE we provide academic support, counseling and life skills training. We become a family to girls whose histories include failure in school, physical and sexual abuse, family instability, poverty and substance abuse. Many girls come to us two to three years behind in school, but our educators help them get back on track academically. Our counselors work closely with each girl and her family to understand the impact of trauma on their young lives and to ensure they have everything they need to find a path toward success. Statistics show that girls who are victimized are exponentially more likely to victimize their own children when they become mothers, and as adults, girls who were in the juvenile justice system as teens have a 10to 40-fold increase in their rate of criminality and high rates of economic dependence on taxpayers. Investing in the needs of girls is one of the surest ways to break inter-generational cycles of violence, poverty and incarceration. At PACE, this is what we do every day. We help girls find success and forge a new limb of opportunity on their family tree. We invite you to celebrate our girls and the accomplishments they have made. To learn more, visit PACEcenter. org.

The prosecutor is convinced that Vasquez-Hernandez saw his own son, Eloy, murder a woman in 2012, and the case is on hold until the victims body is found. The judge has given Vasquez-Hernandez two opportunities to leave, both impractical (pay a $500,000 bond or give a video deposition, but he speaks no English, is illiterate in Spanish and, said his lawyer, might be mentally incompetent). (Consolation: Material witnesses in Oregon earn $7.50 a day.) The continuing crisis The trendy St. Pauli neighborhood in historic Hamburg, Germany, suffers its share of uncouth revelers who wander out from nightclubs seeking restroom facilities but too often choose walls of storefronts and private homes, reported Londons The Guardian in a March dispatch. The solution, according to the civic group IG St. Pauli: paint jobs with an intensely hydrophobic product known as Ultra-Ever Dry, which somewhat propels liquid aimed at it right back toward the source by creating an air barrier on the surface. In other words, said an IG St. Pauli official, its pee back time, and shoes and trouser legs should expect splashes. We have 39 frogs, toads, lizards, turtles, Ms. Th ayer Cut er told Seattles MyNorthwest.com in March, touting her Edmonds, Wash., amphibian rescue shop, especially the heroic job done recently on Rocky, the Texas toad who came with stones in his tummy. He had to have a lot of enemas (but) Rocky is rock-free now and, after passing all the pebbles, is finally able to eat. Added Cuter, turtles are underrated pets, very social and love massages and cuddl(ing). The Job of the Researcher: Cockroaches can be bold explorers or shy and withdrawn, according to recent work by researchers at Belgiums Universite Libre de Bruxelles, who caught a bunch of them, affixed radio tags and studied their movements. Explorers are necessary for locating food sources, although, obviously, they are also most likely to find Roach Motels; shy, cautious roaches are necessary for survival and group stability, and a mixture of the types ensures cockroaches legendary survivability. A Mother Nature News commentator wrote, hopefully, that understanding roaches personalities might make us less quick to grab a shoe. Cant possibly be true Ranson IB Middle School in Charlotte, N.C., has a strict dress code (requiring, for example, only hunter green outerwear). Thus, on Jan. 27, when parent Chanda Spates dispatched her three kids in improperly hued coats, Ranson officials confiscated the contraband clothing, leaving the three (along with 20 other sartorial miscreants) to make their way home after classes with no outerwear at all though the temperature that afternoon was in the 30s. (Following parental outrage, the administrators apologized.) A female teacher working for the Arizona Department of Corrections was brutally assaulted in prison by a sexual predator and has sued the department, but in February the state attorney generals office, contesting the lawsuit, told the judge, basically, that the teacher understood all along that she could get attacked in prison. She was administering inmates a GED exam, but that day had no guard support, not even one to hear her screams, and was given an emergency radio tuned to an unmonitored frequency. Nonetheless, Assistant Attorney General Jonathan Weisbard essentially shrugged: The risk of harm, including assault, always exist(s) at a prison like Eyman. Compelling explanationsClueless in Floridas Panhandle: (1) Debra Mason, 58, was arrested for theft of a pickup truck in Destin, in January and according to police, Mason said she knew it was stolen property but didnt think it was that stolen. (2) Ten miles away in Mary Esther, Fla., in February, Robert Pursley, 54, was arrested for DUI and was asked about items in his truck. According to the police report, Pursley insisted that everything was his except for anything illegal. A baggie of cocaine was in the trucks center console. U-S-A! U-S-A! Americans abroad: (1) American sisters Lindsey, 22, and Leslie Adams, 20, were convicted, fined and deported by Cambodias Siem Reap Court in February after taking several nude photos of each other at the Preah Khan temple, apparently for their social media friends. The Angkor Archaeological Park, where the temple is located, is reportedly the worlds largest religious monument. (2) Two other American women were arrested in March for carving 8-inch initials into a wall at Romes ancient Colosseum and then snapping selfies for their friends. Recurring theme: Among the most recent lives ruined by badly botched prosecutions: (1) Joseph Sledge, now 70, was released from prison in North Carolina in January after wrongly serving 36 years for a double murder; hair samples (revealing another mans DNA), long thought to be lost, were discovered in a court clerks storage room. (2) Kirk Odom, 52, served 22 years after his wrongful Washington, D.C., conviction for rape and robbery; a court in February awarded him $9.2 million in compensation, but on the other hand, after several prison rapes, he had contracted HIV. (Odom is one of several D.C. men convicted of rape or murder based on erroneous analysis by an elite FBI hair-analysis unit.)

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA28 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 26-APRIL 1, 2015 Pain study follows patients after orthopedic shoulder surgery THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAWhen it comes to determining which patients will have long-lasting pain after orthopedic shoulder surgery, cognitive coping style and genetic predisposition to pain sensitivity might actually be bigger factors than the size or intensity of the operation, a study by University of Florida Health has found. The findings could help researchers develop better ways to help patients manage pain. It is hard to know who is going to continue to have pain after surgery, which is compounded by the fact that a lot of people are having surgery to relieve pain in the first place, says lead investigator Steven George, an associate professor and director of the doctor of physical therapy program and Brooks Rehabilitation research collaboration at the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions, part of UF Health. Some of the factors that you would think might predict the outcome such as the size or intensity of the surgery, arent as strong as people would have wanted them to be, Mr. George adds. It has led to researchers looking into individual factors that help determine response to surgery. Among a group of patients who underwent shoulder surgery, those who had both a high pain sensitivity variant in a specific gene and who reported worrying thoughts about pain on a questionnaire were twice as likely to still have pain one year after the surgery, the researchers found. The findings appeared in a recent issue of the journal PAIN. Shoulder pain is the fifth most frequently reported type of musculoskeletal pain, affecting 9 percent of adults in the United States. The article by the UF team, which also included a psychologist, statistician, geneticist, exercise scientist and surgeons, describes two studies supported by funding from the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases of the National Institutes of Health. The first study was designed to help researchers home in on the genetic and psychological factors that may be the best predictors of pain intensity and duration. Nearly 200 healthy participants developed a minor shoulder injury through targeted exercises and had their pain levels measured daily until pain resolved. In the second study, researchers tested 150 patients undergoing shoulder surgery. Participants responded to two questionnaires that assessed their attitudes and beliefs about pain. One measured fear of various painful situations, ranging from a paper cut to slamming a hand in a car door; the second assessed what is known as pain catastrophizing, which is characterized by beliefs that pain will worsen or nothing can be done to stop it. Participants also were tested for genes linked to pain sensitivity and inflammation. One week prior to surgery and three, six and 12 months following surgery, researchers assessed their pain by asking respondents to rate their pain on a scale of 0 to 10, where 0 is no pain and 10 is the worst pain imaginable. Researchers found that patients who had both a high pain sensitivity variant of the COMT gene and high levels of pain catastrophizing had a more than 40 percent risk of continued pain one year after surgery, compared with less than 20 percent among patients without those factors. Determining a patients risk for problems with pain could help surgeons and patients make informed decisions about treatment, Mr. George says. Our goal is not necessarily to prevent someone from having surgery, he explains. Its to provide information that may help them decide whether they need to look into alternative pain management approaches. The ability to tailor pain treatments is a long-term goal of the research and is the topic of a study Mr. George plans to start this year. In it, researchers will evaluate whether a medication that targets COMT, in combination with behavioral strategies to address pain beliefs, results in better pain management for high-risk participants with the minor shoulder injury. Future research should also examine whether the pain risk factors in this study can be applied to patients undergoing other types of musculoskeletal surgeries, Mr. George adds. There is nothing in our results that suggests the factors we identified are specific to the shoulder, he says. We think theres a high potential these findings could translate to other areas of the body too.

Continuing on the journey toward longer, healthier, happier livesInsuring the uninsured was one of the hot topics at the recent Hospital Days in Tallahassee sponsored by the Florida Hospital Association, of which yours truly is chair. Unfortunately, Medicaid expansion has become a highly politicized issue for uninsured citizens whose health suffers as access is impeded; for business owners and anyone else buying health insurance as premiums are higher when costs are shifted; for politicians who have limited resources competing for funding; and for health-care providers who care for the uninsured. An estimated 4 million Floridians 24.3 percent of our residents are uninsured, a rate that makes us second in the nation. Our state legislature is locked in debate about accepting approximately $5 billion a year to provide Medicaid to about 1 million of this uninsured population. According to a recent review by the Brookings Institute, Medicaid enrollment across the nation has increased by 18 percent in the last year, with coverage offered to 69 million low-income Americans as of November 2014. For states that expanded Medicaid, enrollment increased 25.5 percent, while non-expansion states (Florida being an example) saw a rise of 7 percent. The good news is that Floridas health-care quality the other hot topic at Hospital Days has improved. FHAs Hospital Engagement Network initiated a project focusing on 11 areas with the highest incidence of preventable harm: adverse drug events, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, central line infections, early elective deliveries, falls, obstetric harm, pressure ulcers, readmissions, surgical site infections, ventilator associated events and venous thromboembolism. Some 27,500 cases of harm were prevented, and overall harm rate was reduced by 54 percent, avoiding an estimated $170 million in health-care costs. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, Florida has risen from the fourth quintile in 2007 to the second quintile in 2014. The agencys metrics included skilled nursing facilities and other pre-and-post hospital facilities. When only hospital quality metrics are examined, Floridas hospitals rank sixth among the 50 states. As our elected officials in Tallahassee debate how to care for 4 million uninsured Floridians, NCH and the Florida Hospital Association will continue to be supportive. Im confident that by working together with our legislators, we will be successful in helping ensure that all Floridians live longer, happier and healthier lives. Meanwhile, our journey to improve health care quality and the wellness of our neighbors is never-ending.

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickLets say it up-front: Im not a runner. If you see me running, its most likely because something scary is chasing me. But one of the reasons I love having dogs is because they are an incentive to get outdoors and go for long walks or hikes every day. And if you are a runner or jogger, theres no better partner than a dog. Hes not bound by work or family obligations, and he most likely has energy to spare. This is one running buddy wholl always push you to keep going. Most important, running will help keep your dog fit both physically and mentally.Like any athlete, though, dogs need gradual conditioning. You cant just start them out on a three-mile run. Theyll be tired and achy and run the risk of injury. I talked to some canine sports experts to get the skinny on the best dogs for runners and how to prepare them for the activity. What kind of dog? With some exceptions short-faced dogs, dogs with crooked legs and tiny dogs most dogs can make good running companions. The best dogs are attentive and obedient. They dont veer off to chase a squirrel or run in front of you and trip you. Hunting breeds, hounds and working dog breeds generally make good running companions, says Michael Davis, DVM, who studies sled dogs and exercise physiology at Oklahoma State University. Other good choices include herding breeds and certain nonsporting breeds such as Dalmatians and standard poodles. When to start? We always hear that the best time for dogs to start running is when they reach skeletal maturity, but what does that mean? It varies by breed and may also depend on whether the dog has been spayed or neutered. Large breeds generally reach skeletal maturity at a later age usually 18 months to 2 years than smaller dogs. Growth plates close at 14 months for intact (unaltered) dogs and 20 months for dogs who are spayed or neutered, says Chris Zink, DVM, a canine sports medicine and rehabilitation specialist. Have your veterinarian give your dog the once-over before you start running with him.Dr. Davis believes that brief periods of running prior to skeletal maturity can help train a dogs skeletal system for the types of forces encountered during running, but emphasizes that to avoid the risk of injury, its important not to overdo it.The best bet is to keep the time of exercise to a modest level, not substantially fatiguing the dog, he says. How far? Its not a hard and fast rule, but if you plan to run more than three miles at a time, its best if your dog is taller than 16 inches at the withers, Dr. Zink recommends. Shorter dogs have to work harder than taller dogs at the same speed. Start with short distances of no more than a mile. Increase distance gradually so that distances of more than three miles are not reached until the dog is at least 2 years old. Keep him hydrated. Dogs are highly athletic, but one area where humans outpace them is thermoregulation. Dogs lose large amounts of water as their body attempts to stay cool. It is not uncommon to cause heat injury in a dog, but not a human, when the two are exercising side by side, Dr. Davis says. In moderate conditions, less than 70 degrees Fahrenheit, I recommend stopping at least hourly to let the dog drink. In warmer conditions, every 30 minutes, at least. Avoid running on hot or humid days. How often? Dr. Zink recommends limiting runs to three or four times a week. Intersperse runs with walks or play. Remember that for both of you, rest is essential for your bodies to recover and perform even better the next time out.

THE DIVA DIARIESSwimsuit season reflections from behind the dressing-room doorWell, now that its officially the middle of summer Oh, wait. What? Its actually still March? I was basing my timeline on the fact that we went from February to jungle-hot without even getting past Easter yet. Either way, the beach is calling and that means its time to do something more painful than a root canal, something that makes cleaning the litter box look like a party, and something that makes you feel as good about yourself as running into your ex when hes out on a date with Angelina Jolie. Im talking swimsuit shopping. Unfortunately, swimsuits are a necessary evil here in Southwest Florida, because no one looks sane wearing a muumuu while swimming in the gulf. Swimsuit shopping has always been a miserable task for me even when I was in my teens, cute and no bigger than a minute. We women are notoriously well-versed in finding something we dislike about our bodies which explains why there are plastic surgeons on nearly every street corner around these parts. Still, I wish I still had that 19-year-old body that I scrutinized so critically. If I did, Id wear a tiny bikini everywhere: happy hour, the post office (for blacktie events Id just add a nice shawl). But, back then I only wore one-pieces, because if I stared into the mirror long enough while sitting down, I could see a miniscule roll of actual skin above the elastic waist on the bottom of a two-piece. It was hideous, I tell you, simply mortifying. Now that childbirth and several decades have passed, I find swimsuit shopping the most dreaded of fashion ordeals. It starts with the suits on the hangers they all look so super cute on the hangers, so I usually fill my arms up with around 50 (well, not really, but close) and head to the dressing room where Im pretty convinced there are cameras (this could be my own paranoia, but there it is), so when I strip down, I just tell myself that the female loss-prevention specialists who are supposed to be watching are actually on their phones, playing Words With Friends or looking for Groupons. Meanwhile, the lighting in dressing rooms is so interesting seriously, how do they come up with such glaring, white, florescent light that so expertly highlights cellulite? Plus, theyve invented mirrors that magnify fat. Im going to the beach, not a landing strip at the airport and flood lights are not necessary. When it comes to the styles of swimsuits, I understand the science of the Spanx-like body-slimming suits, but I want to go to the beach or the pool to relax, not to feel like Im wrapped in an Ace bandage made of rubber. Ive seen ladies stuffed into those suits, and they dont look happy about it. When it comes to two pieces, Ive found myself tempted by the adorable retro bikinis with bottoms that go all the way to the middle of your torso. I remind myself that my upper stomach has no stretch marks and it looks fine. But once you try one of those on, its undeniable proof that only one person on earth looks cute in those suits and her name is Taylor Swift. Finally, there are the bathing dresses the very modest one-piece suits with built-in skirts. They absolutely hide a multitude of imperfections, but theyre much more flattering on taller women. Im 5-foot-2, and a suit like that makes me look like Im wearing a cocktail dress made of spandex with starfish on it. And then, if I do find a swimsuit that I think might actually work, I have to use my imagination: How would it look without the emergency room lighting and the magnifying mirror? What if it didnt have the enormous loss prevention plastic thingie that adds 10 pounds (but only on one side of the hip)? What if I didnt have unsightly panty lines (Mom always taught me to keep my underwear on while trying on bathing suits)? What if the cellophane crotch shield was gone and I wasnt distracted by the crinkly noises it makes whenever I move? What if I had a tan (because we all know that tan fat looks better than pale fat)? And I decide that, yeah, this suit could work but only with a sarong, which is fine. And then I turn to the side and get the profile view and while Im disheartened, I just decide that if Im constantly facing people head-on and Im careful not to breathe, this suit will look awesome. Happy swimsuit season! Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week B o s e I o e stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 26-APRIL 1, 2015 MONEY & INVESTINGDont pour your money down the drainContinuously wasting money eventually creates deeply embedded bad money habits. Money wasted above ones means results in debt and a destructive financial cycle. A few dollars wasted here and there might seem to be just a few dollars, but on an annual basis, those dollars are possibly thousands of dollars. Over a 50-year period, those dollars can turn into a meaningful difference in retirement. Possibly the best way to start figuring how to not waste money is to look over your credit card and checking accounts. Aggregate and categorize your past 12 months expenditures. Rank your spending in order from largest to smallest, grouping spending into categories: gas, grocery, clothes purchases, gifts, etc. Look at the largest to see if easy savings were poured down the drain (as to be differentiated from time-consuming savings for small amounts of money). It might be a painful experience, but value the pain, as it can have great impact on future purchases. Some readers prefer carefree spending or do not have time to take the additional steps to save. For the masses who never forgot that they earned a dollar the hard way, these ideas might offer benefit. When buying a new car, price the difference between a new car and a slightly used car (or a dealers slightly used car, which is often a customer service vehicle) and then decide if the cost of a new car is worth it to you. Everyone knows there is value to get a credit card that accumulates air travel points. But take another look at your air travel. If you are paying penalties for rebooking flights, often $100 to $150 per person per flight, then run toward an airline that does not charge a fee for canceled and rebooked flights (e.g., Southwest). If buying big-ticket items (TVs, furniture, carpet, etc.), ask sales people in their respective industry when their big sales events happen, as new inventory pushes out old. Possibly you can align your purchase with the sales event. Take your tax return to accountants who are looking for new accounts and ask for a free review to see if you could have saved money. Seniors need to ask everywhere they go if there is a senior discount. Some retail establishments define senior as 60 and over. Price your drugs as brand versus generic costs. Ask your doctor if there is a meaningful difference. Just because your corporate (or other) insurance program covers brand, that does not mean that you are not paying for it as it collectively raise our national health costs. Do not incur credit card debt. If it has been incurred and rates are high, then consider alternative lower costs of debt. If you cannot get a low-cost loan, consider asking a family member for a loan but offer them collateral make it into a bona fide collateralized loan such that if you do not pay, they can take your collateral. A racing bike, an expensive piece of work equipment, jewelry, a boat, etc. are possible sources of collateral. Figure the cost of your substance addiction cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, sugars, etc. Take each months cost, then annualize it, then multiply times 50 years to figure out your lifetime savings. Then multiply that number by three to five times to figure out what might be lifetime medical cost savings. Get organized and do not pay late fees. However, if you already paid credit card late fees, call your credit card companies and ask the customer phone reps to waive the fee. Often up to three late fees within the past six to 12 months can be waived. Buy items at stores that have a no question return policy for nonperishables and perishables. Return of items is not just a benefit to you, but it gives information to the retailer about quality of items sold. For example, consider returning a carton of bitter blueberries that cost $4, as it is $4 in your pocket and valuable information to the grocery store that does not know its getting bad berries unless you give feedback. Collect coupons. Just cut them and put them in a large envelope in your car and before entering a store, take out applicable coupons. Do not sign for an online service that has you provide your credit card information so that at the end of a trial period you will be charged unless you immediately place a LARGE sign on your refrigerator door that you must cancel the online subscription before a specific date. Bulk buy for nonperishables. There is no reason to not buy in bulk: paper goods, cleaning products, canned items, etc. We have all wastefully spent. We have all lamented that we could have saved thousands if we had only done such and such. Hopefully, many of us learned from the pain of wasteful spending.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Global Companies Under Our NosesWhen you diversify your portfolio, aim for geographic diversification as well as other kinds of diversification. Being exposed to foreign economies will reduce your dependency on the U.S. economy, but international investing has some risks. Many countries can be dangerous places to invest. The shareholder rights and protections you enjoy in the United States are less generous or nonexistent in many places. Placing your money under the regulatory oversight of developing economies can be risky, too. Some countries have created different classes of shareholders, domestic and international, and these classes dont necessarily have the same rights. And some foreign governments have hurt the performance of native companies through laws, regulations and edicts. Reporting standards also differ. A company listed and based in the United States must publicly report its earnings each quarter. Thats not a global norm. Its required only twice a year in the United Kingdom, for example. Few nations have reporting requirements as stringent as ours. Many dont track insider buying and selling, lock-ups, deals with related entities, executive salaries and dividends. Each country has its own form of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), too. If youre not familiar with a nations accounting standards, youre at a disadvantage. Then theres currency risk. The shares and earnings in other countries are recorded in the native currency, be it rubles, francs, pesos or drams. You may have studied a company well and picked a winner, but if the local currency weakens against the dollar, as has happened recently, your returns might lag. (Of course, a weak dollar can boost earnings generated abroad.) If you are very familiar with a country and company, you may do well investing in it directly. If not, you can simply buy into U.S. companies with extensive global operations. For example, a little more than half of Johnson & Johnsons and General Electrics revenue comes from outside America.Internationally focused mutual funds such as Dodge & Cox International (DODFX) or Oakmark International (OAKIX) are another option worth considering. You dont have to leave home to diversify your portfolio globally. Out of OrderYears ago, when I was in an investment club, a member suggested a company that sold sandwiches via vending machines. Its stock had fallen from the high $40s per share to $0.14 per share. The club bought some and the stock fell to $0.09 per share. I figured it would at least double, since it once had been so much higher. I bought 10,000 shares, for about $900. The stock rose to $0.14 and I could have sold for a profit, but I was greedy and hung on. Slowly, it f ell to less than $0.01. C.F., Oklahoma CityThe Fool Responds: This stock was firmly in penny-stock territory, a very risky arena full of shaky stocks that are easily manipulated. Worse, it had fallen by more than 99 percent. Thats a massive red flag, as stocks rarely plunge for no reason. If it hadnt been a penny stock, and you had done enough research on the company to be confident of a rosy future, buying wouldnt have been so bad. But we should all be extra wary of or just avoid stocks trading for less than $5 per share. Textron Can FlyThe aviation and defense industries arent typically fast-growing ones, especially since theyre often vulnerable to cuts in government spending. An exception, though, might be Textron (NYSE: TXT), a manufacturer of business jets and single-jet Cessnas, military helicopters and protection systems, and an array of auto parts. Textrons latest quarterly results featured revenue rising 16.8 percent to $4.1 billion over the prior-year quarter and earnings per share jumping 26.7 percent. Management tempered near-term expectations, but some see it merely being cautious, as it has been restructuring its Bell military products and helicopter division. With many one-time expenses now out of the way, its more likely that Bell will show profitability improvements. It also doesnt hurt that Washington is looking to increase the militarys budget. Meanwhile, Bell Helicopter recently received an order for 200 upgraded emergency medical services helicopters. Textrons order backlogs total close to $10 billion. Our current low-interest-rate environment is another boon for Textron, as it makes financing a single-engine Cessna a reasonable proposition. A growing economy should boost demand for business jets, too. Textrons stock is appealingly priced, with its recent price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 20 and its forward-looking P/E ratio near 15. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Textron.) At the turn of the last century, I was formed as a merger of 26 bridge and construction companies and was a subsidiary of U.S. Steel. Independent since 1987 and based in Pennsylv ania, Im now a legendary construction company, with expertise in cable-supported bridges, movable bridges, steel truss bridges, steel and concrete arch bridges, heavy marine works and more. My resume includes the Mackinac Bridge in Michigan, the New River Gorge Bridge in West Virginia, the Tappan Zee Bridge in New York, the Oakland Bay Bridge in California and the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in Florida. Who am I? (Answer: American Bridge Co.) The Dow ShuffleQI see that Apple is being added to the Dow Jones Industrial Index, while AT&T is being kicked out. Do these changes happen often? P.D., ChicagoAThe Dow, created way back in 1896 when it featured 12 companies, has long held 30, with its components shaken up a bit every few years. That happens when one or more holdings lose some stature, and/or when one or more contenders for a berth grow too hard to ignore, as was likely the case with Apple. Here are the last few changes: In 2013, Nike, Visa and Goldman Sachs replaced Alcoa, Hewlett-Packard and Bank of America. In 2012, UnitedHealth Group replaced Kraft Foods. In 2009, Cisco Systems and Travelers replaced General Motors and Citigroup. In 2008, Kraft Foods, Bank of America and Chevron replaced AIG, Altria and Honeywell. In 2004, AIG, Pfizer and Verizon Communications replaced Eastman Kodak, International Paper and an old formation of AT&T. In 1999, Microsoft, Intel, SBC Communications and Home Depot replaced Chevron, Goodyear Tire and Rubber, Union Carbide and Sears. ***QWhats front-running? O.C., Marathon, FloridaAFront-running is a shady practice engaged in by some in the financial world. In the mutual fund world, for example, a fund manager might buy a stock for a personal portfolio and then buy many shares of it for his fund, driving the price up and personally profiting from that. A talking head on television might rave about a company after having invested in it, while a broker, knowing that his firm will be releasing a positive report on a company, might buy shares of it for himself. These are all examples of front-running, which in some cases is illegal. Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us n e hh h y I r t h e n g n g M y b en t a g B a u Inde si n ame.

The lazy brain is why the operational excellence model in which companies fight for dominance by being faster, better and cheaper rose to dominance in the first place, says Mr. Hess, a professor at the University of Virginias Darden Graduate School of Business. Hes also the author of Learn or Die: Using Science to Build a Leading-Edge Learning Organization. We take what we already know, replicate it, improve it and repeat, he says. This is much easier than thinking innovatively. Unfortunately, many of the jobs this old model created can now be done by machine. Today, Mr. Hess says, The only real competitive advantage is an ability to learn and innovate. And if your business is set up on the old model, it just doesnt lend itself to learning and innovating. Fact is, the old operational excellence model provides too many reasons NOT to learn too many reasons to remain lazy, complacent, robotic. Steeped in the command-and-control paradigm of operational excellence, leaders (and employees) see learning as a high-risk activity. Combine a deeply entrenched attitude that risk-taking is a no-no with the brains inherent laziness, and you get a company that cant innovate its way out of the proverbial wet paper bag. The implication is clear: If you want to survive the coming Digital Age of Machines (aka the 21st century), you must engage and reward people so strongly that theyre willing to override their natural tendency toward laziness and continuously generate and share new ideas. Here are some of Mr. Hess tips from his new book on how you and your employees can energize your lazy brains and revitalize your culture in the process: Empower fast, cheap, customercentric experimentation Intuit is a very successful and highly profitable company. (Quicken, TurboTax and QuickBooks are a few of its products.) About eight years ago, after becoming concerned that it was losing its edge, Intuit created a new culture and installed new processes, all designed to create an idea meritocracy. One of its primary goals was to galvanize product development by discovering often-unstated customer needs and creating solutions for them. Intuit founder Scott Cook declared that decisions would no longer be made based on PowerPoints and politics, but by customers themselves, who would vote with their feet for the ideas they like best. They designed experiments to first test key customer needs or value assumptions so that they could move quickly on critical must-have data, Mr. Hess explains. Also and heres the cheap part, he adds they decided to start small in scope until innovators had more and better data to justify a larger investment. In India, young Intuit innovators conducted an experiment on helping farmers get the best price for their products even though management initially wasnt interested in the idea. Operating under the companys new Caesar-is-dead principle, they forged ahead with their research and spent time with farmers to understand their business challenges. They found the farmers didnt know what price wholesalers would pay on any given day in any geographical market for their crops. So they created an app for mobile phones that provided farmers with daily prices from various markets. As a result, the farmers could choose to travel to the market that would pay them the highest price. Mr. Hess says 1.6 million Indian farmers now use the successful program. The Intuit story is a prime example of how empowered employees can quickly and cheaply transform new ideas into products that materially improve peoples lives, Mr. Hess says. Allowing employees to pursue their own ideas is a great cure for lazy thinking If an idea succeeds, the company reaps the benefits. And if it doesnt, the company still has energized, engaged employees who are motivated to try again. Turn mistakes into surprises Another major change was needed at Intuit to fully engage the workforce in this new culture of innovation and learning. They needed a new mental model about mistakes. In an idea meritocracy, mistakes are not punished so long as financial risk parameters are respected, Mr. Hess says. There is no mistake so long as you learn. Intuit even calls mistakes or experimental failures surprises. Surprises dont elicit the same amount of fear and anxiety that mistakes do, he explains. And when we arent afraid, were more likely to take risks that have the potential to lead to big wins. Let employees pull the cord Sometimes employees see big problems and mistakes but feel powerless to make a change. They figure bringing mistakes to the attention of higher-ups is above their pay grade and not a part of their job description, or they fear ending up being the proverbial messenger who gets shot. Such feelings are terrible for morale and just encourage employees to keep going on autopilot. The solution is to make it very clear to employees that they are able not just to point out problems, but also to take bold action to correct them. At Toyota, an idea meritocracy was created by giving every employee in the factory the ability to pull the cord at any time to stop production. In other words, all employees were empowered to take ownership of preventing defects and mistakes. Empowering line employees to take responsibility for continuously improving processes using root cause analysis helped Toyota keep employees engaged and was Toyotas quality differentiator for years, Mr. Hess says. (Unfortunately, however, Toyota diluted that system in its drive for global expansion and global sales leadership, he adds.) Make it a duty to dissent (even when you have to shoot down a HiPPO) Googles culture is built on trying new things. To support this culture, pay level is irrelevant in decision-making, and so is experience or tenure unless the experience provides data used to frame good arguments. In fact, Eric Schmidt, Googles chairman, stated in the book How Google Works that Google employees are told not to listen to HiPPOs, or the Highest Paid Persons Opinion. At Google, Mr. Hess says, one has a duty to dissent. This means that relative rookies can and do raise objections and present alternate ideas when they disagree with their bosses. A similar duty to dissent can be found at UPS, which has an employee-centric culture of constructive dissatisfaction, meaning that everyone has the duty to find ways to improve. Allowing dissent is yet another way to combat lazy thinking, Mr. Hess says. No matter what product or service you sell, he concludes, in order to compete in a technologically advancing, highly globalized competitive environment, you must build a culture where lazy thinking is snuffed out and big thinking is encouraged and rewarded. LAZY BRAINFrom page 1HESS With spring just around the corner, its a good time to think about what you might need for the upcoming seasons. You can score some good deals on offseason purchases now, before they hit a premium. Check out when prices are lowest for which goods with this purchasing guide for March and April, compiled from Readers Digest and Lifehacker. Televisions: If youre not a stickler for the newest release, you might find last years TVs and other electronics at a great price this month. Japanese manufacturers fiscal season ends in March, so you may score a good deal as inventories are cleared for new models. Homes: Springtime is the peak season for realty, and it can mean greater selection for prospective buyers, but also higher prices and more competition. Winter can bring better prices, but you also might find yourself looking at a smaller pool of homes for sale. Cameras: Digital cameras first start going on sale following the Consumer Electronics Show of new products in January, so by March, you may be able to score some great deals on older models. Frozen foods: National Frozen Food Month happens to be March. Yep. Watch for coupons and deals this month. Luggage: Were between peak traveling seasons, so if youre looking for new luggage for upcoming summer trips, nows a good time to buy. Large retailers like Macys, Sears, and Walmart discount their luggage lines just ahead of heavy travel months. Golf clubs: Summer is also prime golfing season, and last years models are being cleared for the new ones. You might be able to pick up new clubs at a deep discount. Thrift stores: April is the time to hit up secondhand shops, since theyre able to offer a better selection after spring cleaning donations.

VILLAGE WALKMangrove Bay site improvements near completion, models coming soon SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYCurious onlookers traveling Goodlette Road South have seen a lot of heavy equipment and moving earth, but from street level the new community of Mangrove Bay is still a bit mysterious. Theres a new deceleration lane and an entryway lined with royal palms, and 11 covered boat slips are under construction. But what else is happening on this prime piece of waterfront real estate along the Gordon River in Old Naples? What passersby cant see is all of the site work thats been completed: underground utilities including the latest fiber optics, natural gas feeds to every home site, and FPL power lines along Goodlette Road South. Phase one site improvements should be complete on or near April 10, according to Jon Rubinton of Mangrove Bay Development. In addition, seven homes are in various stages of construction, with plans for the eighth to begin soon. The 53-home community offers 18 singlefamily designs, each with a private pool, outdoor grill area and dedicated covered or uncovered boat slip. Three models are on target to open in July: the Amelia III, the Sanibel III and the Keewaydin II. The Amelia III model on Lot 23 has four bedrooms plus a den, 4 baths and a second-floor guesthouse in a total of approximately 3,640 square feet under air. Next door on Lot 24, the Sanibel III is a courtyard home with four bedrooms plus a den, 4 baths and a secondfloor guesthouse in approximately 3,331 square feet under air. The Keewaydin II on Lot 39 is already sold with lease back. The residence has three bedrooms, 4 baths, a loft and guesthouse in approximately 3,730 square feet under air. Prospective residents are invited to take a private tour of Mangrove Bay. The luxury communitys resident captain is available by appointment to provide waterfront tours of the property. The sales center is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday and from noon to 4 p.m. (or by appointment) Saturday and Sunday. Mangrove Bays cottage-style residences are designed by MHK Architecture & Planning, built by Lotus Construction and exclusively marketed by Paradise Realty of Naples.

NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). The best news: These trends are expected to continue. We saw year-overyear growth in our overall median closed prices throughout 2014, and with February getting off to a similar start, we expect that trend will continue, says Mike Hughes, NABOR president and vice president/general manager of DowningFrye Realty. Our inventory remains low, yet we ended February with 1,280 sales pending. This indicates a healthy market. According to Kathy Zorn, broker/ owner of Florida Home Realty, February activity indicates that sellers may not be sitting on the fence anymore. Its been 10 years of recovery, and many homeowners whove weathered it may be at a place where they feel satisfied their propertys value has recovered, Ms. Zorn says. While overall closed sales activity for single-family homes remained even in February 2015 compared to a year ago, inventory grew by 6 percent, from 2,305 homes in February 2014 to 2,449 homes in February 2015. I dont think the increase in inventory is necessarily all due to bracket creep, Ms. Zorn adds. When they presume their home has rebuilt equity, many homeowners will contact a Realtor to confirm the increase in value. If the equity is confirmed, theyre likely to put their home on the market. Wes Kunkle, a commercial broker at Kunkle Realty, believes the resale markets recovery will likely affect new home construction prices. The report shows a trend of increased inventory in single-family homes that I believe will begin to put pressure on new home construction prices, he says. We may see a pricing peak in the new home market sooner than later.However, as indicated in the February report, the condominium market is not performing as well as the singlefamily home market. Closed sales for condominiums decreased 17 percent, from 395 in February 2014 to 329 in February 2015. The decrease might be a result of a 16 percent decrease in condominium inventory, from 2,328 units in February 2014 to 1,957 units in February 2015.Condos are not recovering as well as single-family homes because they are at the whim of certain financing SEE NABOR, B32

Getting a bank to approve a loan on a condo is more difficult because they typically rely on extenuating factors such as the financial health of the homeowners association, the age and structural state of the building and a requirement to receive Fannie Mae approval. Despite these obstacles, broker analysts think the condominium markets activity in the last year is an indication of its potential for an increase in value. For example, pending sales for condominiums in the $300,000$500,000 category increased 87 percent, from 79 units in February 2014 to 148 units in February 2015, and overall, the median closed price jumped 14 percent during that time period. Weve seen a recovery and stellar activity in the single-family home market, Ms. Carroll says, adding, It wouldnt surprise me if condominiums became the new exchange and experience the same type of recovery as the single-family market. The NABOR February 2015 market report provides comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Among the overall findings: Overall pending sales increased 3 percent, from 1,244 in February 2014 to 1,280 in February 2015. Overall closed sales decreased 1 percent, from 9,808 in the 12 months ending February 2014 to 9,720 in the 12 months ending February 2015. Closed sales for single-family homes decreased 1 percent, from 4,682 homes in February 2014 to 4,612 homes in February 2015. Closed sales for condominiums decreased less than 1 percent, from 5,126 condominiums in February 2014 to 5,108 in February 2015. Overall median closed price increased 12 percent, from $245,000 in the 12 months ending February 2014 to $275,000 in the 12 months ending February 2015. Overall inventory decreased 5 percent, from 4,633 homes in February 2014 to 4,406 homes in February 2015. Inventory for single-family homes increased 6 percent, from 2,305 homes in February 2014 to 2,449 homes in February 2015. Inventory for condominiums decreased 16 percent, from 2,328 in February 2014 to 1,957 in February 2015. Average days on market for February 2015 was 93. There are 3,027 homes for sale in the Naples area that are priced ab ove $300,000. This comprises about 66 percent of the market.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 26-APRIL 1, 2015 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS Bringing it out early, flaws and all My new beau, a writer who lives in New York, is coming to visit for a week. And I am petrified. Its because you think hes out of your league, my mother says, and shes right. But its bigger than that. Heres my dilemma: How do I hold it together for a full seven days? All the ugly parts of myself that I keep hidden over a long weekend are sure to come out over the course of a week. And then what? My sense is that Im not alone in this neurotic behavior. Many of us women especially, but men, too are terrified of revealing our flawed human side. To that end, we often limit our relationships to manageable bites of time so that we can continue being our optimum selves. My optimum self has shaven legs, washed hair and neatly ironed clothes. She always smells nice, offers up a sweet disposition and has plenty of energy for listening to other people. Shes never selfish, tired or angry. Of course, shes not real. Not the real me, anyway. This version of myself is just someone I drag out when my boyfriend flies down for the weekend. But now hes coming for a weeklong visit, and I know hell see the me Ive stashed away. Not the sunny, breakfast-making, all-around pleasant girlfriend he thinks hes scored, but the woman who can be a bear in the mornings, who likes plenty of alone time, who will never do his laundry. What happens then? Im afraid to find out. This past week, Carl, the man who is fixing up my house, came over to work on one of my projects. He painted while I pulled weeds, and we chatted about my relationship worries. Sometimes I think Im paying him to be my therapist, and all the work he does around the house is just a bonus. When the sun came out and started to burn my face, I ducked into the house to grab my gardening hat, an old floppy number that does nothing for my sex appeal. This, I said to Carl, pointing to the hat as I stepped back outside, will not be making an appearance next week. I thought hed smile. I was sure hed say, Good idea. But instead, he just shook his head and said, You want to bring that out early. This? I asked. I pointed to the hat again, thinking maybe he misunderstood. He nodded. You want him to see the real you, dont you? I laughed and went back to my gardening. Of course I dont want him to see the real me. But later I thought Carl might have a point. Whats the use in keeping our true selves hidden? It all comes out eventually. This new beau is bound to discover that Im not a great housekeeper, that I love my yard an embarrassing amount, that I secretly wish I had a house full of cats. Better to reveal that early, I suppose. That way, at least hell know what hes getting into. Ugly hats and all.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 26-APRIL 1, 2015 But what does it feel like? Thats hard, she says, comparing it to asking what it feels like to give someone a handshake or a high five. Theres no emotional connect to punching a woman in the face, she says. But, she allows, theres definitely a sweet spot when you hit somebody good. You can feel their bones cracking in your knuckles. You feel their pain shoot straight up your arm when you hit them solid. The Brooklyn boxer pauses briefly, searching for the right words. Then, Its like two trains hitting together at full speed, an explosion, when you hit somebody good. Sometimes I hit somebody, and when I get in the corner, I say, I really clocked her! Known for being an offensive boxer the kind that makes other boxers continually back up, as if theyre Ginger Rogers following her lead Ms. Hardy may not connect like two trains colliding with every punch, but she does it enough that she has a 12-0 record. Twelve wins, no losses. And those wins include two bouts won by knockout. You pick up on the rhythms, patterns, mannerisms, body language (of your opponent), she says. Its about reading them and figuring out what theyre going to do before they do it, and what you can do to counter what theyre going to do. You go in and see what happens. Of course, stepping into the ring means getting hit, too. You have so much adrenaline before you go into the ring, you almost dont feel the contact, she says. Even though she once needed 17 stitches on her face and has had her nose broken twice, I never experience pain in the ring you cant feel it until the next day. Hardy, a 73-minute documentary about Ms. Hardys struggles as a boxer in a male-dominated sport and her journey from amateur to professional, is set for three screenings as part of the 2015 Fort Myers Film Festival: 5 p.m. Thursday, March 26, and 6:30 p.m. Friday, March 27, at Regal Cinemas Bell Tower 20, and 2 p.m. Sunday, March 29, as part of the festivals closing program at the Broadway Palm Theatre. Ms. Hardy will attend the screenings, along with Natasha Verma, the films director, participating in a Q&A afterward.A local connectionMs. Verma, known locally for being in front of the camera as an anchor for NBC2, spent two years making the film, following Ms. Hardy daily. She first met her at Gleasons Gym in Brooklyn, famous as the training ground for boxers Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson. I just had a feeling (about her), Ms. Verma says about Ms. Hardy. I had a gut feeling she was something special and I followed it through. She has such an incredible story. Filming for Hardy began in 2012, which was the first year the Summer Olympics included womens boxing as an official sport. I knew there was a massive inequality in pay (for women boxers), and thats what sparked me to investigate the issue, Ms. Verma says. Heather Hardy is such an inspiration and a testament to why women should get paid as much as the men. When I first met her, she was a homeless single mother from a small neighborhood in Brooklyn; she didnt have much. She came from a troubled childhood, was raped as a 12-year-old. There were many times in life where she was knocked down, and she kept getting back up. She lost much of what she had in an apartment fire. Then, while staying with her mother, that house was damaged a few months later by Hurricane Sandy. Ms. Hardy has a degree in forensic psychology and originally wanted to go into police work. She rethought her future when her daughter was born. My short-term goals werent on building a career but surviving day-to-day, she says. Sometimes you work really hard, and you dont have a chance, she says. But in boxing, I was able to work hard and let the results show, which was really satisfying for me. She became interested in boxing when she started taking kickboxing classes. That led her to Gleasons Gym and to boxing, where the canvas square felt like home.Fighting for equalityWomen are still vastly under-represented in the sport and rarely seen on televised bouts. ESPN and HBO have an anti-female fight policy, Ms. Hardy says, explaining that women are not seen as a long-term investment. My strategy, from my very first fight, was to make myself a short-term investment (with) potential, she says. And the best way is to sell a lot of tickets. For their first fight, most women are required to sell tickets. She sold $13,000 worth of tickets to her first professional fight. And though she won that bout, she only made $800. I made less money than the ring-card girls in my pro debut, she says, referring to the bikini-wearing women who parade around the ring in stilettos, holding placards announcing the rounds. Ms. Verma says Showtime is in development for more female-fighting programming. Maybe Ms. Hardy could be on a Showtime card, or HBO, or the Oprah channel sponsoring a fight. Anyone out there. Put her on a network. In the gym itself, the men respect her, Ms. Hardy says. I get a lot of respect from the guys who are around and see the work I put in. Its the men in the boxing organizations who harbor stereotypes of female boxers, she says. I heard a representative high up in one of the organizations say how women shouldnt be in the ring, because it shouldnt be in a womans nature to fight. But these women, Ms. Verma says, are fighting just as well as the men, and sometimes better. People are tuning in, watching them, she says. But theyre still underpaid. (Floyd) Mayweather gets $160 million no matter what just for showing up when the bell rings. Ms. Hardy, on the other hand, cant even earn $3,000 for a fight, she adds. And she brings in $10,000 in tickets for the promoter. She works twice as hard as the men to stay in the game.Girl on fireBoxing promoter Lou DiBella, whos also executive producer of the documentary, signed Ms. Hardy. In June, she was one of two females to box in Barclays Center in Brooklyn a first for the venue that has 18,000-plus seats. I said, Im going to sell so many tickets, theyll have to have me fight there, Ms. Hardy says. She sold $24,000 worth of tickets and is currently in training for her second fight there, scheduled for April 11. She calls herself The Heat, because she brings the heat in the ring. Her walkup song (the song that plays as shes making her entrance) is Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys. Its also played when she wins. When Hardy premiered at the Austin Film Festival, Ms. Verma says, some viewers were so moved that they cried, and the Q&A session went on for so long that people followed them out into the lobby. Reception to the film, which also screened at Doc NYC, has been very positive. People feel inspired, Ms. Verma says. They want to follow Heather and know whats next for her. Someone has to break the glass ceiling and be one of the pioneers, to show: this is normal, this is what we do, she adds. I hope women who want to fight are inspired to be bold and make moves I think (the film) is a call to action in a lot of ways. As for Ms. Hardy, shes going to keep fighting. Its what she knows how to do. Its what she loves to do. Im very competitive, she says. Im a survivor. Im a fighter. I feel like I was made for the sport. FILM FESTFrom page 1 Other lms to keep on your radarIn addition to Hardy, the Fort Myers Film Festival boasts a few other documentary lms that look promising. We werent able to screen everything, but did see Most Likely To Succeed, which opened the festival on March 25 at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall and also plays at 5 p.m. Friday, March 27, at Regal Cinemas Bell Tower 20. This entertaining lm takes a critical look at the current state of education, with its focus on rote learning and endless testing. Directed by Greg Whiteley, it examines alternatives to todays high schools, including the innovative High Tech High in San Diego, which has done away with compartmentalized classes, textbooks and tests. Instead, the teachers teach whatever they want, however they want, focusing on projects. The students must all present their projects to parents and the community at the end of the school year. The students learn vital soft skills such as self-con dence, empathy, cooperation, collaboration, independence, working in teams, problem solving and leadership. High Tech High is so cool, it might make you wish you could go back to high school. Kurt Corbain: Montage of Heck, directed by Brett Morgen, plays at Bell Tower 20 at 8:15 p.m. Friday, March 27. The rst fully authorized portrait of the grunge rock musician, it includes neverseen-before home movies, animation and interviews with his family and closest friends. Women of Unboxed, a documentary directed by Peter Barton, looks at a group of women who graduated in 1969 and recently turned 65. As they look back on all that has happened in the ensuing years, they also discuss how they can still change the world. It will be screened at 11 a.m. Thursday, at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center. Another documentary, You Belong to Me, tells the story of Ruby McCollum, an African-American woman in Live Oak, Fla., who killed a white doctor in 1952. Director John Cork looks at the days of Jim Crow and Ms. McCollums trial and incarceration. (She and her husband were related to the McCollums of McCollum Hall in the Dunbar area of Fort Myers.) The lm plays at 11 a.m. Friday, March 27, at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center. And Gary Bergerons Basta looks at one mans search for justice and healing in the aftermath of being abused by a priest. See it at 11 a.m. Sunday, March 29, at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center.

ARTS COMMENTARYGimme! Gimme! Gimme! Southern greed rules at Florida RepI dont care how much make-up or Botox you use: Greed makes you ugly. But it has never looked as good as it does in Dividing the Estate, where its a source of great conflict and much comedy. In this Horton Foote play, running at the Florida Repertory Theatre through April 8, the Gordon family of east Texas all are vying for a larger slice of their inheritance. And they dont even have the decency to wait for Stella (Sara Morsey), the family matriarch, to die. They want their money now. In fact, all three adult children Lucille (Carrie Lund), Lewis (Chris Clavelli) and Mary Jo (Rachel Burttram) have borrowed against the estate. Lucille, the sensible one, only borrowed money when necessary: to send her son, called Son (Jason Parrish), to college and to bury her husband. But her two siblings have been borrowing money as if theres an endless supply. Lewis has squandered hundreds of thousands on alcohol and gambling, while Mary Jo has been living beyond her means with husband Bob (Brendan Powers) in Houston, spending her inheritbnce on fancy cars and trips to Europe. The two siblings pleas to their mother to divide the estate are a neverending chorus throughout the play. Just when you think the matter is settled, they bring it up again much to the glee of the audience. Theyre like children whining and pestering their mother without end, as if they intend to wear her down and ultimately get their way. I know what youre all up to, Stella says to them. Plotting behind my back. The minute Im dead youll sell this house, divide the land and it will all be gone. Well, youll never do that while Im alive. I tell you that. The house and its land have been in the family for 100 years, and Stella wants it to stay in that way. (Set designer Dennis Maulden has given them a large and understated home, with a living room stage right and a dining room, with chandelier, stage left. The wallpaper, in shades of brown, is muted and subtle, nothing fancy. After all, this is old money.) Son, as sensible as his mother, oversees the books and controls the money. His mother takes care of the house. Mr. Clavelli, as Lewis, stumbles through the play in almost a daze, clothes askew, inebriated and also under a cloud of perpetual worry over his finances. Ms. Burttram, though, is the plays secret weapon. She may be impeccably dressed and well mannered, but when it comes to money and how much she might get, her eyes glow with a strange manic gleam. Her entire world revolves around possessions and image. Its obvious she puts money above family. Ms. Burttram plays the role to the hilt, but keeps her character human. Mr. Powers, as her husband, is a hearty, slap-you-on-the-back fellow, a man with get-rich-quick schemes that never pan out. The couples daughters Emily (Kayla Tomas) and Sissie (Courtney Feiman) are totally self-centered, shallow, mean girls. Ms. Tomas and Ms. Feiman play them to a T. Theyre the epitome of ungrateful, spoiled children. Perpetually pouty, theyre bored with life and only concerned with traveling abroad and joining the local country club. Their sense of entitlement is overwhelming. They are, as the saying goes, like someone born on home plate who acts as if shes hit a home run. None of the Gordon children or grandchildren have worked a day in their lives. Stella is the backbone of the family, and Ms. Morsey plays her with considerable skill. Her memorys going, and she gets a little drifty and forgetful, but Ms. Morsey doesnt let her become a caricature. Shes endearing, but powerful when she needs to be. She speaks her mind. One of the plays sweetest moments occurs when she and Doug (John Archie), the households 92-year-old African-American servant, sit on the sofa and reminisce, and wind up drifting off to sleep. The two of them grew up together, and despite the fact that shes his employer, there is real friendship and affection there. Mr. Archie sometimes overplays his character; I found myself desiring some more subtlety at times and wish director Robert Cacioppo had pulled him back a little. Doug, Mildred (Patricia Idlette) and Cathleen (Cindy De La Cruz) make up the familys help, and the trio is a microcosm of Black history and attitudes through the generations. Doug was born at the end of the 1800s, Mildred is in the middle, and Cathleen is the youngest, attending junior college and wanting to make something of herself. The women dont get very many lines, though Mildred has a scene with Mary Jo and her daughters that demonstrates an affection between them all. Brittany Albury as Pauline, Sons fianc, and Elise Lorraine Miller as Lewiss barely legal-age girlfriend round out this large ensemble. Mr. Foote, the playwright, is known for his movies Tender Mercies and A Trip to Bountiful, which was a TV drama and then a play before it became a movie. (He also wrote the screenplay for To Kill a Mockingbird.) His dialogue and keen sense of family interactions is wonderful. There are humorous discussions about family members and friends (and friends of friends) that we never meet, including a groom who accidentally shoots himself on his wedding night. In addition to gossip, theres talk of churches and denominations, and a disagreement over whether or not a certain hymn was sung at someones funeral. Stella gets a laugh when, declaring of Rock of Ages, I hate that damn hymn. The writing is not fancy, but exquisite, and this cast, for the most part, knows how to deliver it. (It may have been the accents, but at times, the play veers dangerously close to Carol Burnett/Mama territory.) Mr. Foote even has the bickering family, while sitting around the dining room table, sing a few lines of In Heavenly Love Abiding. Talk about irony. The dialogue is so loopy, so realistic, its almost Altman-esque (though, because the playwright was nine years his senior, its more likely Mr. Foote possibly influenced Robert Altman, than vice versa.) Some people think hell is being forever alone. In No Exit, Sartre said that hell is other people. For certain members of the Gordon family, hell is having to be with family. Dividing the Estate deals with death and taxes, facing ones history and mortality. Its about those everyday family moments and squabbles, but also those watershed moments in life when everything irrevocably changes. Has human misery ever been so poignant yet so humorous? nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Dividing the Estate>> When: Through April 8 >> Where: Florida Repertory Theatre, Fort Myers >> Cost: $49 and $45 >> Info: 332-4488 or oridarep.org The Cast of Dividing the Estate: Brendan Powers, Rachel Burttram, Sara Morsey, Carrie Lund, Jason Parrish and Chris Clavelli.

But you can turn the annoyance into an asset by showing how quickly and how well you can resolve them. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bovines fondness for tidiness pays off when you untangle a situation that seems hopelessly snarled. You might later be surprised to learn who will be expressing his or her gratitude. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you can tackle your assignment the way you prefer, it might be a good idea to at least ask for suggestions. Who knows? One or two might even turn out to be helpful. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Make all the changes in your plans or proposals that you feel are necessary before repeat, before you submit them to your colleagues. Youll come off looking more decisive that way. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might feel a mite intimidated in a new environment, be it a job, a classroom or meeting the future in-laws. But enter with a big smile, and everyone will see you as a real take-charge Cat. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) This could be a romantic time for you if you can set aside your cynicism and let yourself believe that someone really cares. If youre already in a relationship, expect your partner to be extra-loving. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Its a good time to shed any doubts about your abilities. Youve proved yourself in the past, so why not accept that youll do just as well, or better, in dealing with the new challenge ahead? SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your suspicions might be on the mark, but unless you can prove what you assume, you need to exercise that Scorpion discretion and let events unfold without your assistance. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Be careful not to go over the top this week. Avoid overeating (especially of the wrong foods), or drinking too much, or working too hard. You can do it all, but in moderation. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A family matter is given to you to resolve because you have the gift for bringing quarrelsome kinfolk together. But while youre playing Dr. Phil, dont neglect your career obligations. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Someone of importance shares your goals but disagrees with your plan to achieve them. Never mind. Defending your methods with logic and facts earns you admiration and respect. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Consider getting away, perhaps for the weekend, despite all the demands made on your time and energies. Youll return refreshed and ready to tackle it all with your usual finesse. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a sense of honesty that makes people believe and trust in you. PUZZLES

Its a tense drama with solid action and performances. Rated R. Cinderella 1/2(Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Richard Madden) Maiden Cinderella (Ms. James) falls for Prince Charming (Mr. Madden) despite her stepmothers (Ms. Blanchett) efforts to make her miserable. This live-action, non-musical reimagining of the classic fairy tale is pure and sweet as can be, which is good for the little girls of the target demo but a bore for adults wanting a little bit of edge. Rated PG.The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 1/2(Dev Patel, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench) With his marriage looming, Sonny (Mr. Patel) tries to open a second hotel while his current guests get into trouble of their own. Its a noble sequel with its heart in the right place, but its nothing special. Rated PG.Focus (Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Gerald McRaney) Con artist Nicky (Mr. Smith) takes an aspiring grifter (Ms. Robbie) under his wing and is surprised he falls for her (even though shes ridiculously hot). Its fun for a while, but you never buy the love story and the plot is disjointed. In other words, it lacks focus. Rated R.Kingsman: The Secret Service 1/2(Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Taron Egerton) A mentor (Mr. Firth) and his protge (Mr. Egerton) from a secret intelligence agency try to stop an Internet billionaire from ruining the world. Director/co-writer Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class) makes the story come vibrantly alive with dynamic action and visual effects. Rated R.Jupiter Ascending (Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne) A housekeeper (Ms. Kunis) learns she owns the Earth but needs the help of a half-man/half wolf (Mr. Tatum) to keep it safe from an intergalactic baddie (Mr. Redmayne). Some of the action and effects are impressive, but the story has too much surplus for its own good. Rated PG-13.Project Almanac (Jonny Weston, Sofia Black-DElia, Sam Lerner) Teenagers find plans for a time machine, build it and travel back in time to have some fun. But there are consequences. 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.

NoThe Gunman starts in 2006 in the Congo. News reports tell us the countrys ongoing civil war is the worst conflict since World War II. But this is not a polemic about the travails of a small, imploding African nation. No, this is about mercenary sniper Jim Terrier (Sean Penn), whos there to kill people. Hes also in love with Annie (Jasmine Trinca), a doctor. The good news for Jim is that he gets to kill the minister of mining. The bad news is he has to leave his girlfriend behind when he skips the country. You win some, you lose some. Jump to eight years later and we see Jim surfing, then get viciously attacked. The main conflict kicks into gear as Jim tries to track down those who ordered his murder. In London he talks to old friends Terry (Mark Rylance) and Stanley (Ray Winstone), and in Barcelona he chats with Felix (Javier Bardem), who told Jim to take the shot in the Congo and is now married to Annie. Director Pierre Morels (Taken) film also takes us to Gibraltar. Youd think all the traveling would lead to a grand sense of adventure, but youd be wrong. Mr. Penn is 54 but has the chiseled body of a 21-year-old who works out and watches what he eats. This is Sylvester Stallone-as-Rocky impressive, which has the added benefit of meaning hes also better looking than all of the bad guys he kills. And for an actor who scoffed at action roles for much of his career, Mr. Penn certainly breaks plenty of bones and shoots enough people in the face. Its as if every blood spurt, punch, knife through the throat and gunshot through the hand is making up for lost time. The fact that its rendered in a rather ho-hum way is a bit of a shame; the violence is brutal, but theres nothing novel here. Its standard action fare. Speaking of novel, the film is based on a book by the late French author Jean-Patrick Manchette, which perhaps explains why it at times gets overwhelmed with details. The love triangle with Felix weighs the story down, but the real sin is the head trauma that renders Jim woozy at inopportune times. Whether he endures this or not, hes still going to have arduous battles with bad guys, and a similar effect could be rendered from him getting hit in the head while fighting. We dont need five minutes with a doctor, an MRI or the inconvenient timing of occurrences of his condition. The Gunman is a heady, grownup action movie that lacks style and energy. And fans of Idris Elba should know that it lacks him, too. The actor has prominent billing on the poster, but he doesnt appear until 80 minutes in, and then only sporadically in the remaining 35 minutes. Much like the film itself with its intriguing premise, the filmmakers had something good in their hands and squandered it. >> Sean Penn and Javier Bardem also co-starred in Before Night Falls (2000), for which Mr. Bardem was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar. f I k t dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com

So the reader knows right off the bat that she will be found and rescued safely. The real mystery of this suspenseful thriller is in figuring out what exactly happened in that cabin, and why Mia cant seem to remember any of it. Constructed with a time-jumping plot that glimpses various points before, after and during the abduction, the story is told largely in the alternating voices of three characters: Eve, Mias mother, who loves her daughter deeply and fiercely but has never been able to understand her. Gabe, the detective assigned to the investigation, increasingly driven to close the case for Eves sake as well as his own. And Colin, Mias abductor, a man long hardened to brutal reality but suddenly learning just what his limits are. True to this narrative design, Mia herself is a bit of a cipher. Shes viewed mostly through the eyes of the three fallible narrators, each of whom also is trying to figure her out themselves. When, late in the story, Mia finally gets her own say, the impact is devastating: Unexpected secrets are revealed and relationships altered forever. There actually are several stories intertwining here, and the themes of guilt, disappointment and resentment thread their way through them all. In one, each member of a fractured family is doomed in a different way by a lifelong lack of communication and care. In another, desperation leads to an escalating series of epically bad decisions. But in them all, despite everything, people keep instinctively grasping for connection and understanding and sometimes find it in the most unlikely of places.

(FW) 20% OFFSINGLE ITEM* KOVEL: ANTIQUESFortunes rose and fell, measured and reported on ticker-tape BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELCollectors are searching for antique and vintage items related to discontinued technology old computers, transistor radios, early television sets, computer games, and even old typewriters, fans and ticker tape machines. A recent auction featuring furniture, cigar cutters, stoneware crocks, Chippendale furniture and maps was also offering an antique stock ticker. The 11-inch-high machine had a metal label explaining that it was designed by Thomas Edison in 1870. It was used for about 80 years for getting stock and commodities quotes from exchanges. The estimated auction price was $1,000 to $1,500. Printed letters could be sent by telegraph as early as 1846, but machines were fragile and difficult to use. Telegraphic printers were improved, and by 1867 a stock price ticker system was being used in New York City. Edisons invention came next. It was the first one to use letters and numbers, not Morse code. By the 1880s, thousands of stock tickers were in use in New York that made stock trades accurate and almost instantaneous. Ticker tape machines recorded information on long thin strips of paper that were discarded. When there was a parade in Manhattan to celebrate a holiday or championship, the tapes were torn and thrown at the parade from open windows. Soon the events were called ticker tape parades. The name still is used, although now the paper comes from the paper shredders. An antique ticker tape machine attracted technology enthusiasts at a 2014 Pook and Pook auction in Downingtown, Pennsylv ania. Collectors bid until the rare Edison machine sold for $2,460. Q: I have a large cedar chest with a curved lid and drawers along the bottom. It has two curved handles. Its marked under the lid Roos Chests, Forest Park, Ill., Sealtite lid patented. It was my maternal grandmothers wedding chest about 1920. The chest is 44 inches wide, 31 inches deep, and 18 inches across. What are the best fabrics to store in a cedar chest? Does it have any value as an antique? A: Cedar chests have been used to store things for hundreds of years. They are often called hope chests because they often were given to young women to keep linens and other household items before marriage. The cedar keeps out moths and other insects, but the oil in the wood will discolor fabric or paper. Before storing fabrics in the cedar chest, it should be lined with mylar or polyethylene sheeting. The fabric should be wrapped in white cotton sheets or washed unbleached muslin. Pictures and other paper objects should be placed in an archival box before storing in a cedar chest. Edward Roos Co. was founded in Chicago in 1916 and moved to Forest Park in 1918. At one time it made more chests than any other Its Local. Its Entertaining. Its Mobile. Got Download?Its FREE!

The company was sold in 1951 and it went out of business in 1953. Cedar chests are useful and sell quickly. Many Roos chests are found online and in shops. Plain chests go for $100-$150. Those with extra decoration or carvings can sell for $300-$500. Q: I have a copper box with a hinged lid that is marked Craftsman Studios above a hammer striking an anvil. The words Hand Made are on the anvil and the words Laguna Calif are below it. There is a repousse long-stemmed rose bud on the top of the lid. When was this made and what is it worth? A: Carl Wirths started Craftsman Studios in Brooklyn, New York, in 1919. Jewelry and desk accessories were made. Wirths moved to California and opened a studio in Los Angeles in 1920. Clyde Hall took over ownership in the studio in 1924. The studio was moved to Laguna Beach in 1929 and was in business until the 1950s. Hand-hammered desk accessories, vases and other items were made at the California studio. Variations on the name of the workshop were used, including Studio instead of Studios, and Craftsmen instead of Craftsman. The name and location marked on your copper box indicate it was made in 1929 or 1939. The realistic rose on top of the box is not a typical Arts and Crafts design, so your box is not a type popular with Arts and Crafts collectors. It would sell for $75 to $100. Q: A baseball team gave me a Falstaff beer clock for my birthday in 1957. The numbers 3, 6, 9 and 12 are on the clock face. There is a large shield-shaped Falstaff Beer logo and two beer mugs that move on the front. There is a light inside that lights up the clock face. What is it worth? A: Beer was produced under the Falstaff name from 1903 until 2005. Several Falstaff beer clocks in a variety of styles were made over the years. Most of them sell for $50 to $60. Your toasting beer mugs make it more attractive, so it might be $150-$200.

Ms. Walck studied acting at The Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre in New York City and has been involved with TNP since 2004.

She teaches acting classes with TNPs adult education program and at Ave Maria University, where she is an adjunct professor. She has appeared onstage for TNP in God of Carnage, The Great American Trailer Park Musical, Les Miserables and Sylvia. The memories associated with a particular dress or a pair of shoes I wore as a child can be powerful for me, Ms. Walck says. When I read the script for L ove, Loss & What I Wore, I knew I wanted to direct it because I saw myself in every story I connected to each and every character in some way.

Turtles on the Town will include a public art exhibition from November-February of 50 fiberglass reinforced polyester sea turtle sculptures embellished by local artists and artisans. A gala auction of the sculptures will take place in March 2016. The model used for the sculptures is based on a bronze sea turtle created by the late Kathy Spalding, a longtime supporter of local environmental and arts projects. Ms. Spalding offered her support to Turtles on the Town before she died last September. The models are being cast locally by Architectural Masters. Many community and business leaders have already pledged their support. Lavern Gaynor and Geraldine Martin are among those serving as major sponsors, each having made a $50,000 commitment to Turtles on the Town. May 1 is the deadline for artists to submit renderings of their vision for a sea turtle sculpture. Artists can submit more than one rendering, and more than one artist can work on a single turtle. Interested artists should email email@example.com for details. Turtles on the Town patrons businesses, individuals, couples, families, groups of friends, alumni associations, school PTOs, youth and adult sports teams, etc. will pay $5,000 to underwrite a sculpture during the public exhibition stage. Patrons do not keep the sculpture they support. Those interested in learning about becoming a turtle patron should email firstname.lastname@example.org. Those who want to own a one-of-akind turtle will ultimately vie for the opportunity at the Turtles on the Town gala set for March 9, 2016.About the collaborationThe Community Foundation hatched the idea and seeded Turtles on the Town with a start-up loan of $150,000. The foundation will use its share of the proceeds to establish two funds to support the arts and the environment in the community. The Conservancy of Southwest Florida will use its proceeds to support its loggerhead sea turtle protection and monitoring program, Kemps ridley sea turtle research efforts and education programs that reach more than 7,000 students annually. For more than 32 years, Conservancy biologists have tracked the threatened loggerheads, documenting more than 4,500 nests on Keewaydin Island and ensuring that more than 260,000 hatchlings have had a chance at survival. The United Arts Council will use its portion of the funds raised to expand its efforts in educating at-risk students and to continue building up the Collier County arts community. More information about Turtles on the Town can be found at facebook.com/ TurtlesOnTheTown or by emailing email@example.com.

Winners of the Florida Barbecue Association-sanctioned challenge will qualify for the Jack Daniels Invitational World Championship. From backyard masters to state champions, top teams from across the state are expected to attempt to out-smoke and outsauce one another. Smoke on the Water is an excellent contest, says the FBAs Sheilah Jones. The location on the riverfront is great, and many of the top teams from across the state compete. Last years inaugural competition drew 30 professionals teams and more than 10,000 guests. Teams compete in cook sites that are 20 feet by 20 feet, though space upgrades are available for an additional cost. Organizers have also announced that teams can submit dessert recipes for judging on Friday night, and a select number of teams will be allowed to sell their barbecue to guests. For more information, call 333-1933 or visit smokeonthewater.sbdac.com.Take Note Naples-based juice purveyor Delicious Raw has announced plans to open a fourth location, this one in Pittsburgh, Pa. An opening date has not been announced, but the spot will offer the same menu of fruit and vegetable juices, smoothies and wellness shots as its Naples counterparts. For more information, visit delraw.com. After appearing on the CNBC show Restaurant Startup, Naples own Chef Brian Roland of Crave Culinaire fame walked away with a private investment offer of more than $500,000 that did not come from show hosts Joe Bastianich or Tim Love. I think the show got us out there and gave us some credibility, Chef Roland says. We wanted to prove that we are a viable business with an investable concept that can produce beautiful and delicious food. Details about the local investor are confidential, but Chef Roland left the show with 73 percent of its online voters liking his pitch to the hosts. The current offer is more than he requested from Ms. Bastainich and Mr. Love.

After we shunted the kids off to school, we made a quick, unusual breakfast stop at the deli before heading to our respective offices to get on with our day. I tend to be the person at breakfast who orders the most exotic item on the menu and inevitably ends up disappointed (theres a running joke about me and mahi-mahi pancakes in my family), but not this time. I know I like bagels, I know I like Nova lox, and I dont object to any of the trimmings. The good stuff was nicely displayed, with the lox nicely piled to the side and the cream cheese, onion, tomato, capers and lemon waiting patiently for their turn to top off the toasted everything bagel served on the side. Im slowly learning my lesson and not complicating my most bleary-eyed meal with infusions and exotic spices, and Stage 62 did a great job feeding me simply and well.

VINOWhat goes with what?Wine lovers, whether beginning or advanced, are always confronted with new things to learn. Wines from unheardof regions suddenly appear on the shelves (anybody know where Yecla is?), a new type of grape, once thought extinct, is now being vinified and bottled. (So if you have any Piculit Neri in your cellar, be sure to let me know). But perhaps one of the biggest challenges for all of us is trying to pair up wines with different types of food. There are, of course, combinations that are known as classic pairings: Port with Stilton cheese, for example, and foie gras with Sauternes. Less-elevated combinations include one we all know and love: Chianti with red sauce dishes like pasta and pizza. Beyond that, things get a bit sticky. Part of the puzzle is trying to find pairings for dishes that come from non-wine cultures, like China, India and Thailand. There are solutions, and some great pairings, but thats a column all by itself. Mostly, its a matter of food chemistry. Why does no wine in the world go with asparagus? What acids and other flavor components in a particular dish will enhance (or fight with) the chemistry of the food? A good example is citric acid, which is very predominant in wines like sauvignon blanc, especially the New Zealand versions. That leads to what I call the lemon law. If you can put lemon on a dish, you can drink sauvignon blanc with it. Heres another: if youre drinking a very tannic young red wine, pair it with a salty food. At a professional tasting a few years ago, we sipped a young tannic wine, which puckered us up pretty well. Then we had a lick of salt and tasted the wine again. No tannins. Works with walnuts, too. There are other aids and little tricks available. The Internet is full of food pairing charts that try to communicate the information graphically. Some are simple diagrams, and others are poster-sized tables with hundreds of listings and combinations. Many times, wine and food pairings surprise us. Recently, during the Palm Beach Wine Auction at the Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa, we were ushered into the Angle restaurant where Chef Pete Morales treated us to a private wine and food pairing experiment. We paired the sea scallops with Hansell Sebella Chardonnay. The acidity of the wine was a perfect balance to the texture of the dish, and the characteristic lemon zest and minerality accented the lemon in the dish. A typical example of the lemon law. Next, Chef Morales offered a slice of pork belly, paired with Biggio Hamina Amity Vineyard Riesling from Oregon. This was especially interesting, because the riesling had a very pronounced petrol edge to it. This fusel oil or petroleum component is not very common in riesling, but its not unheard-of, either. The dish needed that kind of edge to cut through and neutralize the fattiness of the pork belly. Unusual, but very interesting. Third, we were treated to a duck confit with Benovia Pinot Noir from Russian River Valley. I met Joe Anderson from Benovia at the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest in February, and theres a reason hes been a signature vintner at that event. The earthiness of the pinot supported the smoky character of the broiled duck, each one enhancing the other. While its not possible to list every dish that goes with every wine, there are some basic principles that you can apply to almost every situation. Champagne goes with anything. Same with other sparkling whites made in the champagne method. We drink it at Thanksgiving because it works with all the different sweet and salty flavors of the different dishes. Old world wines go with old world foods. Theyve evolved together for centuries. Dont fight tradition. A Chianti Classico with (maybe) pasta and veal rag would be sensational. Sweet and spicy barbecue sauces need bold, fruity wines, like zinfandel or malbec from Argentina. Cabernet sauvignon is heaven with grilled meat dishes. And, as we all know, thats why the flag of the Margaux region in Bordeaux has a sheep on it. For more information, go to Google Images and type in Food and Wine Pairing. Youll be overwhelmed at the number of charts, graphs and diagrams. jerry GREENFIELDvino@floridaweekly.com The Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa Hansell Sebella Chardonnay www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYC38 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 25-31, 2015 Your Wine Concierge Retailer Shoppes at Vanderbilt2367 Vanderbilt Beach Road Suite #810, Naples, FL 34109239.513.0095 napleswinecollection.com special orders
