C1 BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.com A piece of expert advice: Dont touch the gopher tortoises. It seems the goodhearted people of downtown Naples are hell-bent on rehoming the protected species to the Naples Preserve at the corner of Fleischmann Boulevard and Tamiami Trail despite the fact that the tortoises we see are almost never lost or in need of aid. It would be like if I saw you walking down the street and I would pick you up and drop you off in Fort Myers, Becky Speer, a naturalist at the city-owned preserve, says. You wouldnt have a house. You wouldnt know where the groceries are. The 9.5-acre Naples Preserve is home to about 140 tortoises, even though its only large enough to accommodate three as the species ideally prefers in nature, Ms. Speer says. The tortoises naturally find hospitable homes themselves, but territorial disputes ensue among the males when they are packed into a tiny space. A male that has been unceremoniously dumped at the preserve doesnt know what to do, Ms. Speer continues. Other males will attack it and try to get it out of there. It doesnt know where to run and hide. Its disoriented it cant think straight.Gopher tortoises dig Naples Preserve, but its not all goodSEE PRESERVE, A18 the new hungryThe economy has rebounded, while the number of people seeking help has soared. story by roger williams firstname.lastname@example.org yyg y Outside the open door, a line of people extends down a stubby sidewalk.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 23-29, 2015 Bring Your Highest Expectations LIVINGSTON ROADPINE RIDGE ROAD EXIT 107WHIPPORWILL LANE N COMMENTARY Meet Amanda and the Big Giant EyeballIn American storytelling, comic books represent the Saturday night carnival or the town parade, not the symphony orchestra or the award-winning Broadway play. They crash onto the scene with bursting colors and bawdy swagger, setting the night ablaze in a neon sizzle-and-pop that might be mistaken as superficial. But no. In the greatest comic books, the most powerful ideas in Western culture appear without being trivialized especially in the superhero comics: Batman and Superman and Spider Man and Captain America and Wonder Woman and The Flash. Now, in the tradition of those iconic templates, comes Amanda and the Big Giant Eyeball, built from the bones of a weird little place on the Southwest coast of Florida: the one-time home of Cyrus Teed and the Koreshan Unity. The universe lies inside a great orb, which happens to be the shape of an eyeball, which young Amanda discovers in a mostly abandoned lab, and saves because she knows its sentient and even powerful. And then her older self streaks in from the future to save her life from a violentprone Teed and his killer Monkey Puzzle trees, but tries to dump the eyeball, and all of a sudden. well, thats for you to find out. Set in Florida and based on real events, the story is the work of Florida Weeklys Fort Myers managing editor, Osvaldo Padilla with the art of Ivan Barriga (drawings) and Kristy Swan (colour, as she spells it in England), a cover by Lee County tattoo artist Andy Howl and a logo designed by Florida Weeklys Hannah Arnone. Its a dazzling tour de force of the comic book art form. I introduce this to you now because I believe in nepotism for the right reasons and the book is available here: comixology.com as well as in stores throughout the area. And also because sometimes, when prayer or medications dont work, a good comic book might save your life. Like any great comic, Mr. Padillas story raises these questions: What is right or wrong? What is love or its flip side, tyranny? And what are memory, history and understanding in the face of indoctrination? All the great comics can answer those questions, or at least raise them. But how about this question you can also consider in Amanda and the Big Giant Eyeball: Are you the same person as an adult who walked in your skin when you were 8 or 10 years old? Thats what Amanda learns in this vivid story. Mr. Padilla got the idea in part from the very close relationship he has with his daughter, Julianna, now 10. Children are idealists, he realized, and they understand the world with its wonders, its mercies and its cruelties, in straightforward ways adults may not. Anymore. Mr. Padilla is a remarkable story in his own right. The son of immigrants who were lucky to escape Cuba alive in the 1960s, he watched the values of his father and mother collide with American culture like a couple of freight trains, from the little family home in the Miami satellite town of Hialeah. His dad worked as a line foreman in a tennis shoe factory, while his mom worked sewing clothes at another factory, then came home to do piece work at night with a sewing machine she kept in the tiny front room. Neither one of them could speak English well. But there was school for Mr. Padilla, a very diverse neighborhood and a corner newstand. The reason Im a managing editor now is because I use to read Spider Man, Superman, The Incredible Hulk this was like 1980 (when Mr. Padilla was about 9 years old). And he went on, with scholarships, to earn undergraduate and graduate college degrees the first in his family from the prestigious George Washington University and later Northwestern University. Those comic-book plot lines it was so much better than television, he told me. The special effects were unparalleled, and even if you could go see spectacular special effects in a movie like Star Wars (1976), you couldnt easily see them again. But with the comics, it was every day. And each day, his mother gave him two quarters to pedal his bike to the corner bakery and buy a snack, usually a guava-filled pastelito. But the young Mr. Padilla hoarded a quarter a day and saved up for a new comic. It changed his life. And now hes made one that can change our lives. When youre growing up in Hialeah, he said, sometimes you dont think you can ever do anything or get out of there but now this is done. Crossed off the bucket list.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 23-29, 2015 OPINION rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Hillary Clintons joyless rideYou can never know what that wacky Hillary Clinton will do next. At the outset of her latest presidential campaign, she decided to drive from New York to Iowa for her first campaign stop. Or, to be more precise, she decided to be driven to Iowa by a Secret Service agent as part of a three-car caravan in keeping with her security needs. For a former first lady and global celebrity, this is traveling light and spontaneous lets load up the Secret Service detail and blow this joint. Her campaign referred to her vehicle as her Scooby van, evoking the lovable madcap crew of the cartoon series. This could be considered a cute little affectation, until you realize that she campaigned in a van in her 2000 Senate race, and for the same reason: to appear more relatable (the Secret Service reportedly referred to that vehicle, too, as the Scooby-Doo van). Hillary Clinton has been reintroducing herself to the public for so long that even her manufactured stabs at authenticity arent entirely new. Of course, the image she is trying to live down is the Hillary of the Saturday Night Live sketches, with her gratingly insincere laugh and her cringe-inducing blatant calculations. It is her curse as a politician of stamina and determination, but not of natural grace, that her maneuvers to reveal her real self always feel like obvious maneuvers. To say that she lacks the light touch is almost as much of an understatement as saying her husband is not a monk. Hillarys worst moments on her book tour last year were her exaggerations, from the heights of her power, fame and wealth, of her own economic struggles. Negotiating the contrast between her middle-class message and her longtime upper-1-percent lifestyle would challenge an even more gifted politician. Driving is something everyday Americans do, well, every day; Hillary hasnt driven, not even a Scooby-Doo van, in 20 years. Perhaps Hillary can pull this off. It is easier to be a wealthy champion of the downtrodden as a Democrat. Consider Franklin Delano Roosevelt. But, with enough political ham-fistedness, its entirely possible to come off as an out-of-touch phony. Just ask John Kerry. Hillary is far closer to the leaden Kerry or Al Gore than she is to her husband or Barack Obama. As potentially the first woman to be elected president, of course, she has history on her side. Kerry and Gore didnt. But its not clear that this will work for her as powerfully as it did for Obama. His history-making first wasnt just another item on his resume. It reinforced his case that America needed a thoroughgoing break with the politics of the past. Hillary will have many strengths an electoral map that tilts toward the Democrats, a Republican Party that is still suffering a hangover from the Bush years, prodigious fundraising. But her planned road trip to the White House, even if she manages to get to her destination, will be more a grim forced march than a joyful excursion. Its motto might as well be: Oh, the fun we will pretend to have! Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Evangelical zeal drives Israeli policyPity the Republican presidential contenders. So many hoops to jump through, so many circles to square. They must convince their howling base that they support religious freedom laws while at the same time reassuring the more-moderate masses that they are not bigots. (Ask Indiana Gov. Mike Pence how tough a task that is.) They also must disavow or refuse to acknowledge climate change, evolution and other areas of scientific inquiry lest they offend the fervent evangelicals who populate their party in significant numbers. This kowtowing to ignorance offends rational voters (who abound in the general election), so hemming and hawing of the highest order is required. But there is one hot-button subject that Republican presidential aspirants are not allowed to finesse: unconditional and unwavering support for the state of Israel. Woe unto any major Republican figure presidential candidate or not who fails to toe the Israeli line something that Chuck Hagel and James A. Baker know all too well. Mr. Hagel, who recently stepped down as secretary of defense, became the center of a firestorm a couple of years back when he was quoted in a book as saying that the Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people in Washington. (He later conceded that a more appropriate term would have been pro-Israel lobby instead of Jewish lobby.) When Mr. Hagel made those comments, he was a Republican United States senator from Nebraska. Mr. Hagel further infuriated his party by having the unmitigated gall to pledge allegiance to the United States of America. Im a United States senator, he said. Im not an Israeli senator. I support Israel. But my first interest is: I take an oath of office to the constitution of the United States. Not to a president, not to a party, not to Israel. William Kristol, the conservative commentator, was among the legion that pounced on Mr. Hagel, saying he possessed an unpleasant distaste for Israel and Jews. If Im not mistaken someone with an unpleasant distaste for Jews qualifies as an anti-Semite something that Mr. Hagel is not. The author who quoted Mr. Hagel is Aaron David Miller, who has advised six secretaries of state (in both Republican and Democratic administrations). There will be times when in effect, whether its settlements, whether its what to do about the peace process, whether its what to do about Iran, that the interests (of Israel and the United States) will not coincide, said Mr. Miller in defense of Mr. Hagel. Very few sitting senators and representatives, although I think they know that to be the case, are willing to express themselves on this subject. More recently, James Baker Ronald Reagans chief of staff and treasury secretary and George H.W. Bushs secretary of state found himself in the crosshairs of the Israel-first crowd. Mr. Baker gave a speech last month in which he criticized Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for what he said were diplomatic missteps and political gamesmanship that have hindered attempts to fashion a peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians and complicated President Obamas attempts to reach a nuclear accord with Iran. The neocons were enraged, and Mr. Baker was characterized by one rightwing radio raver as someone who has always had a hate on for Israel. Jeb Bush, fearing guilt by association and damage to his unannounced presidential campaign, felt compelled to immediately distance and disassociate himself from the comments made by Mr. Baker, a longtime friend and political confidant of the Bush family. What is truly scary is that much of the over-the-top support for Israel within the Republican Party is driven by evangelical Christians who point to the biblical teaching that says Christ can only return if the Jews have their own state in the Holy Land. This dangerous and potentially disastrous melding of public policy and fundamentalist Christian belief within the Republican Party has been building and seems to grow stronger over time. Its proponents ludicrously denounce theocracy abroad while promoting it at home. Is Israel our most important ally in the Middle East? Yes. Should the United States come to Israels aid if it is the victim of a large-scale unprovoked attack? Of course. Since 1948, the United States has provided $121 billion in aid, mostly military, to Israel, and it is money well spent. Still, blind loyalty to a person or a state us just that blind. It would be encouraging if responsible, moderate members of the Republican Party rose in advance of the 2016 elections and affirmed that in the conduct of our national affairs sound policy trumps biblical prophecy. It would be nice if that occurred, but heres my own prophecy. It aint gonna happen.

The more things you do, the more you can do. Thats certainly true of Adria Starkey, who has been thoroughly engaged in all aspects of the Naples community for more than 25 years, from the Collier County Medical Society Alliance and the local Economic Development Council to Girls Inc. (which grew into the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County), Angels Undercover, the Naples Children & Education Foundation and The Shelter for Abused Women & Children. Southwest Florida is a great place to live and work, says the executive vice president/Collier County president of FineMark National Bank & Trust. I have the pleasure of serving on the board of directors for Gulfshore Playhouse with Adria. When she joined our board last year, her impact was immediate: Under her chairmanship, the results of the theater companys annual gala tripled. I am a firm believer that art in all forms adds to the individual character and well-being of a person, she says. Adrias biggest and possibly most rewarding challenge was chairing the Naples Winter Wine Festival in 2014. I had two fantastic co-chairs, an amazing staff and wonderful co-trustees who all helped create our success $13.5 million raised for at-risk and underserved children in Collier County, she says. Adria was born in Youngstown, Ohio, and moved with her family to Hollywood, Fla., as a fourth-grader. Her father was born in Italy and migrated to this country when he was 11 years old. He was a wonderful role model, a World War II veteran and hugely patriotic, she says. He was killed in an automobile accident caused by a young man under the influence of drugs. Obviously this had a huge impact on my life, she says. I also was blessed with an amazing mother who truly came into her own when she was forced to due to my fathers early death. Adria always loved school. She graduated with a degree in finance and marketing from the University of Florida and has completed several post-graduate courses at The University of Miami, Florida International University and the University of North Carolina. I am a huge fan of continuous learning, she says. She started in the financial services business with Northern Trust in Miami and transferred to Naples in 1988. Two years later, she left Northern Trust for a commercial real estate development opportunity, and a few years after that started a wealth management team at First Union. As that position grew beyond Collier County, she was named regional president. First Union eventually became Wachovia and grew the market to include $5 billion in deposits, 1,100 employees and 101 financial centers. It was a wonderful opportunity for me and allowed me to work with great people and develop my leadership skills, she says. She retired from Wachovia in 2005 and in June 2009 started a small investment management firm, which she ran before joining FineMark in October 2013. It took me back to my roots, she says about the company that had been founded in 2007 by a group of Northern Trust executives who had experienced the same training and culture she had been exposed to early in her career. Adria is married to Jerry Starkey and together they have four children, who Adria considers her inspiration. Her hobbies and interests include fitness boot camp, yoga, golf, playing the piano and my wonderful book club and the amazing women in my mastermind group. Winston Churchill is attributed with saying, You make a living by what you get, but you make a life by what you give. Adria Starkey is truly a go-giver. r i a F e bobHARDEN email@example.com Talking points with Adria StarkeyAs a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 23-29, 2015 back, maintained by volunteers. Once inside, they give Mrs. Crockett their names, collect bags, and allow the volunteers to fill them with boxes and cans and jars. With bread and rolls. There is also fresh produce in copious quantities: green squash and bell peppers. Collard greens, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, potatoes and even a large supply of white asparagus. Her children have never tasted asparagus, one mother tells another woman. On this occasion there is meat, too freshly butchered pork roasts and chops provided out of the blue by a man who lives across the street. He bought pigs at the Lee County Fair, had them butchered, and gave the food to the Alva United Methodist Food Pantry to help feed those whom officialdom no longer calls the hungry. Now, theyre called food insecure, and more than 160,000 of them, many working people, live on the Southwest Florida coast, according to numbers compiled by the Harry Chapin Food Bank. We only ask to see a drivers license or some ID we dont ask how much money they make or if they have a job, says Mrs. Crocket. We say a little prayer, adds Mrs. French, and we remind ourselves: Why theyre here is between them and God. Them and God and also the economy. In 2008, when the recession slammed into Southwest Florida like a hurricane, the Harry Chapin Food Bank provided 3.4 million pounds of food to needy people across the region and lines were suddenly much longer than they had been, recalls Al Brislain, president of the Food Bank. But last year, with the recession long over and unemployment rates descending to near 6 percent, the Food Bank distributed almost 20 million pounds of food. The reasons need is so high even postrecession are many, but they include the fact that many jobs pay low wages. What we have the people we see come to the pantries each week are typically the working poor, says Donna Connolly, a retired CPA and longtime volunteer with the Collier County Hunger and Homeless Coalition. They come in working uniforms, dad comes from landscaping or farming or roofing jobs, maybe. For them, I dont know that the recession is particularly over-over. Its hard to make ends meet. Angela Hogan, executive director of the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition, calls the jobs her clients hold, nametag jobs. In those jobs you can put three of them together, wear your name on your shirt in each job, and maybe call it a fulltime job, she says. You cant arrange childcare around it because theyre not going to give you a real schedule. Its impossible to plan a life around those kind of jobs. And whether they raise the minimum wage a little bit, or not that wont make a difference. Its the working poor. In a community like this based around a service economy, we will have the working poor. That recognition, and perhaps a little frustration about a wealthy society that wont try a little harder to help the working poor get less poor, leads her to this conclusion: We seem to have no plans to deal with this at this point (as a society), except to blame them.The food insecure solar systemBut many hundreds of Good Samaritans, or more, do a lot more than complain about people getting help here. The Harry Chapin Food Bank is the regional star in the solar system of roughly 150 that rely on the agency for supplies the nonprofits supported by the community, the churches, the momand-pop operations, school organizations and others. Those supplies come from more than 140 grocery stores where Harry Chapin retrieves food each week, including stores in such prominent chains as Walmart, Publix and Costco. And more recently, in what amounts to a huge qualitative change in the old system of help, food also arrives and is efficiently distributed in significant quantities from major farms in the area. It used to be, back in 2007, that we would handle maybe 50,000 pounds of fresh produce in a year, recalls Mr. Brislain. Two ladies in a Honda might show up (on a farm) and ask for a load of tomatoes. Wed drive up and say, Can you give us some cukes and your peppers and squash and potatoes? But in the last calendar year we provided almost seven million pounds of fresh produce a lot of it from the growers in Immokalee and Labelle and Lee County. That hasnt been simply because growers are more generous; its because Mr. Brislain and the food bank staff are a lot better organized. As the head of the Harry Chapin Food Bank and with a salary of $120,000, Mr. Brislain leads a staff of 60, including nine America Corps workers. Together with the board of trustees, Mr. Brislain and his staff rethought the logistics of their service, which is why they are now in the middle of a campaign to raise more than $5 million money that will be spent on refrigeration, on trucks, on food, and on buying the 50,000-sqaure-foot warehouse that holds the food cleanly and safely, and serves as a distribution center. Significantly, its much healthier food, now, than once-upon-a-time, which could make a significant difference in the lives, the energy levels, and the abilities of recipients, he predicts. The farmers have helped a great deal. We sit down and talk to them, explains Mr. Brislain. We say, If you have to add one person to the work line to pick the vegetables you cant sell, the ones that are misshaped or ugly but still good food, well help pay the salary of that person. So weve developed a great relationship with growers. They understand that were not asking them to add cost to their program. They have to keep the line rolling. State Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam has helped as well, Mr. Brislain says, creating a program that allows people using food stamps (or the contemporary equivalent a card with an allotted amount added each month, depending on need) to get twice the amount of fresh produce at participating farmers markets as they could get at a grocery store which helps farmers as well as those in need, who can now eat both fresh and local. Im old enough to remember when produce was the cheapest thing in the store, but now its one of the most expensive, Mr. Brislain notes. Thats why some people the single working mothers who cant keep up buy less healthy foods: because its cheap.Who needs eats?At the moment spring, 2015 the need keeps rising. That fact is demonstrable in the numbers: last year Harry Chapin distributed almost 20 million pounds of food, but this year its putting out about a million pounds a month, to some 30,000 people each month, black, white, brown, many of them working. An elaborate and determined study produced by Charlotte Countys Food Coalition last year sought to gather data that would provide a more clear picture of the new hungry or food insecure and the results surprised everybody, says Angela Hogan. By issuing ID cards and tracking people who sought help, the Food Coalition discovered that 19 percent of households were headed by single females, 17 percent each by two-parent families and single males, and 16 percent by single moms. Many receive food stamps, many work, and significant numbers are older. Only 11 percent of the 3,642 households that visited a food pantry in the course of a year reported themselves as homeless. Ultimately, the information will be used to help workers and volunteers triage these needy families out of their desperate need and into more comfortable lives, the report says in small steps and by coordinating types of care. Although a few scammers always take advantage of the system, the vast majority of these people can use help once or twice a week, which is what theyre getting. There are people who try to scam the system, sure maybe they try to come for seconds before their turn or before 6 p.m. when everybodys had a chance. But so what? My answer to the question of scammers is, isnt it better than throwing this food away? And in the United States each year, says Mr. Brislain, Americans waste as much as 31 percent of the food they produce or have, worth $192 billion, some estimates show. Getting to that food and using it, therefore, is a righteous ambition, hes concluded. For many, the food is simply a leg up, he insists, recalling an old adage: A person with food has many problems. A person without food has only one. Food insecurity, as a term, is inelegant. It mostly fails to describe how hard life is for many residents who bear little resemblance to the gaunt, holloweyed men and women who lined up for soup and bread some 80 years ago dur-HUNGERFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOThe Harry Chapin Food Banks mobile pantry helps distribute food to some of Southwest Floridas 160,000 residents who need help.

There is no starvation in Southwest Florida now, but whether or not people miss meals, 25 percent of our citizens are food insecure, says Mr. Brislain. That percentage is based on U.S. Census figures that show significant numbers of people living within 150 percent of the poverty line, which hovers around $16,000 per year for a family of four. Food insecure means, for a kid, that during the week, the family doesnt know where the next meal will come from. Theyre skipping meals or cutting back. The unsung heroes are the schools. During the school year, five days a week in Charlotte, Collier and Lee (and in other counties), thousands of children are getting breakfast and lunch. If theyre from low-income families, its free breakfast and lunch. It makes a world of difference. While the Harry Chapin Food Bank provides 80 to 90 percent of its food at no cost to its agencies, it also charges 18 cents a pound for the rest, which they can pick up each week themselves from the Food Bank in downtown Fort Myers. We like to see that they have some skin in the game, explains Mr. Brislain. Back in Alva, where the food pantry is maintained across the street from the public school by two churches the First United Methodist Church and the Alva Church of God its apparent to everybody that people in need remain at the heart of the community. And many of them are trying to do something about it. Kristy Richardson and her band of 100 extraordinary students at the Bonita Springs Centers for the Arts spring from a tradition as old as the biblical story of the Good Samaritan. They go into their communities sometimes onto their very own streets, where life can get rough to distribute food to those who need it, and may lack the wherewithal to travel to a food pantry. Getting the kids into the game changes everything for them, including the notion of what it means to be an American, she says. Mrs. Richardson is the AVID Elective Teacher and Coordinator at the Bonita school the acronym stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. The idea for her program came from a woman who visited the school one day, made a pitch to her sixth graders, and then challenged them all. Are you with me or not? she asked them. And they were like, Were With You! she recalls. That woman was Connie Peru, who heads an organization called Collier Harvest, aimed at getting good food to those without secure or dependable sources of food. We just hit it off, says Ms. Richardson. She needed manpower to bag food and get it distributed through Bonita, and the kids were up for it. In a big way. They have to maintain a solid GPA, have teacher recommendations, write an essay its a bit of a process, she explains. Most of these kids will be the first in their families ever to graduate from high school. About 75 percent of our kids are on the free and reduced lunch program they dont come from a lot. More than that, they often feel like theyre outcasts. So we can see the difference in them just from our food drive, and distribution. The kids start talking to the neighbors when they walk by. And now the neighbors may start feeling like their need is accepted. On a recent Saturday, the kids in the AVID program met at Riverside Park, opened about 100 empty bags and began loading them, each with an allotment of food. Then parents took them to churches where some was distributed, or accompanied them into the neighborhoods trailer parks or small-home neighborhoods where different families sometimes share a house. My kids are out there, and theyre handing the food to the people who need it, Ms. Richardson says. They come back with stories of need that help everybody, including them, understand whats real. The grandmothers who care for their grandchildren, without being able to work. The moms and dads who cant make ends meet even with two jobs. The homes with trouble. One boy learned that the dad in a family he knows is addicted to gambling. He didnt realize until he went to see if they needed a bag of food. Then he learned of all the stress on that family through the fathers addiction. And he learned the guy was recently arrested, too. But now they know, and now they can help. And not only can they help, but they do. Roger WilliamsWhere the kids get into the game

As summer draws near, need heats up for various donations Saturday, April 25, is Garden Gives Back day at Naples Botanical Garden to help replenish the shelves of the food pantry and kitchen at St. Matthews House. Garden members who bring in a canned or non-perishable food donation will earn one free adult admission for the day; nonmembers will save $5 off the regular cost of admission in exchange for a food donation. The 2015 Stamp Out Hunger food drive for Collier Harvest is going on through Saturday, May 9. Collier Harvest, the nonprofit agency that manages the National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger campaign locally, asks residents of Naples and Marco Island to place non-perishable food donations by their mailboxes anytime between now and May 9 to be picked up by their letter carriers. All residents, including seasonal residents returning home, can also drop off donations at the U.S. Post Office on Goodlette-Frank Road or at the Coco River U.S. Post Office on Immokalee Road. Collier Harvest also seeks volunteers to help sort the food collected for Stamp Out Hunger. Helpers (middle-school age and older) are needed from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, May 9, at the Collier Harvest warehouse at 4451 Mercantile Ave. in Naples. Help is especially needed toward the end of the day as donations pour in. Beverages, pizza and live entertainment are provided. Last years Stamp Out Hunger resulted in more than 250,000 pounds of canned goods to help feed the hungry through the summer. On a daily basis, 113 Collier Harvest volunteers deliver food to 40 agencies that support thousands of families in our community. In addition to food donations, Collier Harvest also accepts monetary donations. Although administrative costs are kept low and volunteers use their own personal vehicles and fuel to deliver the donated food, the organization still requires some monetary support to fulfill its mission. For more information or to volunteer to help Stamp Out Hunger on May 9, call 455-3663 or visit collierharvest. org. The Shelter for Abused Women & Children welcomes donations of used cell phones.

ADVERTORIALAsk the Ophthalmologist Learning about LASIK and Common Questions:Michelle Diaz, MD/ Eye Centers of FloridaMany people have heard about LASIK or know someone who has had it done, but do not know what LASIK actually does. LASIK surgery is the use of a laser to correct the need for glasses or contact lenses. What if I need reading glasses?People around age 40 who need reading glasses are still good LASIK candidates as they can have something called monovision performed, which involves using the laser to correct one eye for distance vision and the other eye for close vision. What if I am older than age 50?Generally people over the age of 50 are not LASIK candidates.Does LASIK hurt?The answer is usually not. There is a slight discomfort and pressure during the surgery, but no need for pain medication after the surgery is done. What do I need to do to prepare for surgery?If contact lenses are worn they have to be removed a week before surgery. Prior to the treatment further instructions will be provided. Will I see during the surgery?During the surgery the eyes will be numb with anesthetic drops. The eyelids will be held open to prevent blinking. Any eye movement is tracked with the lasers tracking system. During certain parts it is normal for everything to go dark and to see the flashing lights of the laser. How do I choose a LASIK surgeon?When it comes to surgery, experience and training is the key component. Having an ophthalmologist with LASIK subspecialty training is very important. www.ecof.com 239.939.3456 Watch out for traffic deputies Heres where Collier County Sheriffs Office traffic-enforcement deputies will be the week of April 27-May: Monday, April 27 Immokalee and Oil Well roads: Speeding Estey Avenue and Lakewood Boulevard: Red-light running Goodlette-Frank and Immokalee roads: Red-light running Tuesday, April 28 Santa Barbara Boulevard at Calusa Park Elementary: Aggressive driving U.S. 41 East and Valley Stream Drive: Speeding U.S. 41 North and Pelican Bay Boulevard: Speeding Wednesday, April 29 Radio and Livingston roads: Red-light running Collier and Verona Walk boulevards: Speeding Shadowlawn Drive at Shadowlawn Elementary: Aggressive driving Thursday, April 30 Collier and Capri boulevards: Speeding Orange Blossom Drive and AirportPulling Road: Red-light running Logan Boulevard and Pine Ridge Road: Red-light running Friday, May 1 Naples Boulevard and Hollywood Drive: Aggressive driving Immokalee Road at Gulf Coast High School: Aggressive driving Pine Ridge Road at I-75 southbound exit: Aggressive driving Tune up your driving skills at AARP classAARP offers classes to help older drivers learn about new traffic laws, refresh their driving skills and reduce their risk for tickets and accidents.

OFFICES IN NAPLES, FORT MYERS & CAPE CORAL Hard-hitting numbers In March, offensive lineman John Urschel of the Baltimore Ravens added to his curriculum vitae by co-authoring the latest of his several peer-reviewed academic articles A Cascadic Multigrid Algorithm for Computing the Fiedler Vector of Graph Laplacians in the Journal of Computational Mathematics. If Urschel can understand, and even advance, tangled, obtuse formulas (which use familiar numbers, e.g., 1, 2, 3, and Greek letters such as phi, lambda, and sigma lots of sigmas), why is he a football player, he asked himself on the Players Tribune website. Theres a rush you get when you go out on the field . and physically dominate the player across from you. He added, I love hitting people.Great art The National Gallery of Australia hosted a special series of tours of James Turrell: A Retrospective in early April in which all guests were nude. The tours were staged by Australian artist Stuart Ringholt, who introduced the concept earlier at the Museum of Contemporary Art (and was nude, himself, for the Turrell show, though other gallery staff remained clothed). The posttour cocktail reception was also in the nude. The Australian abstract expressionist Aelita Andre began painting professionally at age 9 months, said her parents, and by 22 months had her own exhibit at Melbournes Brunswick Street gallery, and by age 4, the paintbrush-armed toddler had enjoyed a $24,000 sale. She has now also distinguished herself as an artist of another type while explaining her approach. In April, the now-8-year-old told News. com.au, I interpret my style of painting as a magic, abstract universe. It doesnt sit in one tiny sphere in all realism; it goes out and it explores the world. She acknowledged seeing things (e.g., rabbits) that an 8-year-old might, but pointed out that she also sees the cosmos. I just feel free. I dont feel locked up in a tiny world.Wait, what? In March, two men serving time for anti-gay murders became the first same-sex couple allowed to get married behind bars in Britain, at the F ull Sutt on Prison in East Yorkshire. The romance blossomed after the two men (Marc Goodwin, 31, serving life, and pedophile Mikhail Gallatinov, 40, who is eligible for release sooner) met at the prison library, and the wedding party included four relatives of the two killers. In January, the principal of W.F. Burns Middle School in Valley, Ala., sent home a letter to parents with her suggestions on how to train students in the event an active shooter breaks into the classroom. In order not to be sitting ducks for the intruder, each child was asked to be armed with an 8-ounce canned food item to toss at any potential spree-killer. The can is designed to give the student a sense of empowerment in the face of extreme danger, the principal told WHNT-TV of Huntsville, but acknowledged that (T)his is a sensitive topic.PerspectiveNewly elected Alabama state Sen. Larry Stutts, in one of his first actions in office, introduced a bill to repeal Roses Law, a 1999 legislation that, had it been on the books the year before, might have saved the life of new mother Rose Church, whose doctor was OB/GYN Larry Stutts. Roses Law gave new mothers a legal right to remain hospitalized for up to 96 hours after birth, depending on circumstances, but the new senator calls that right just another Obamacare-style law in which legislators in Montgomery intrude into doctors decisions. (Sen. Stutts also proposed to repeal the requirement for written cautions to patients whose mammograms show unusual density.) Though her daughter survived, Rose died of a heart attack following two doctors decision hospital releases, and her husbands wrongful-death lawsuit against Sen. Stutts and others reached a settlement in 2005. NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

Gopher tortoises are the only North American tortoise found east of the Mississippi. Their burrows provide habitat not only for themselves, but also for up to 350 other species. Because their habitats are so beneficial to the surrounding ecosystem, Florida considers them a keystone species and has designated them as a protected species, making it illegal to molest, capture or transport a gopher tortoise. Florida law also requires that gopher tortoises be removed before land clearing or development takes place, and that permits from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission be obtained before doing so. Ms. Speer believes the overcrowding in Naples Preserve may have started a few years ago when a construction company re-homed a few tortoises to the preserve before starting development, giving people the idea that the preserve was an appropriate place to take lost tortoises. People think they can just bring them here and drop them off, she says. But you are not even supposed to touch a gopher tortoise without a permit. If a tortoise does need to be moved out of traffic, people should place them in the direction they were headed. Also, an overturned tortoise should be righted slowly, so as not to cause twisting of its intestines, which can be fatal. Capture, molestation or harassment of tortoises is illegal, but necessary intervention from harm is not, according to the FFWCC website. The city of Naples, which owns the preserve, has no plans to remove the tortoises, Ms. Speer says, adding natural predators have been sl owly decreasing the numbers. She does, however, strongly discourage people from adding to the tortoise population in the preserve. Ms. Speer also has a concern about PRESERVEFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOThe Naples Preserve is home to about 140 gopher tortoises.

These heroes dont have a cape or super powers. They look just like you, armed with nothing more than a few dollars they are willing to share. Avery, age 6 Leukemia patient Naples, FL Will you be her hero? Just give what you can at ChildrensHospitalGoal.org. Her favorite hero?turtles which, as opposed to tortoises, are amphibious and need a lake or other body of water for survival being moved into the preserve by wellmeaning people who find them nearby and drop them over the fence. There is no body of water inside the preserve, however. They die after about three days and its a terrible death, Ms. Speer says. Shes trudged this whole way, shes tired, shes dehydrated and she turns to get back to her where her lake is and she cant get over the fence. Re-homing isnt the only well-intentioned mistake Floridians are making when it comes to gopher tortoises. The FFWCC recently received three different reports of people releasing hatchlings into the ocean on the states east coast, resulting in their death. Tortoises are land-dwelling animals, unlike turtles, and do not swim. Gopher tortoises can easily drown, the agency said in a statement on April 3. Because gopher tortoises often nest in dunes adjacent to sea turtle nesting beaches, correct identification of these terrestrial animals is important before deciding what action, if any, is necessary. The most bystanders should do to help correctly identified sea turtle hatchlings is clearing their path to the Gulf of Mexico, FFWCC spokesperson Kelly Richmond says. Ultimately, we keep our distance from wildlife. Anything you can do to not interfere with the species is what we recommend. For more information about correctly identifying and handling gopher tortoises, visit myfwc.com. To report an injured tortoise, call (850) 921-1030. Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission received enough reports about people releasing landdwelling tortoise hatchlings into the ocean, mistaking them for sea turtles, that it released a statement earlier this month advising the public to correctly identify the animals before providing aid. An easy way to differentiate between the two species is to know that sea turtles have flippers and gopher tortoises have toes.

The occasion was not to celebrate a milestone birthday or to commemorate an anniversary. It was to discuss a topic that is often difficult for many: choices to be made during lifes final chapter. Talking about issues related to end-of-life or care when someone has a serious illness is not the easiest thing to do. However, having the conversation ahead of time is one of the most valuable gifts that you can give to your loved ones. During stressful times, many of us wisely choose to defer important decisions so we can gain a sense of perspective in the hope of clearer thinking. This strategy can be effective in many situations; however, in the case of decisions about medical care, the opportunity to defer decision-making is often not possible. Advance planning is an opportunity to facilitate an important discussion that can reduce stress during these life events. Hope HealthCare Services is dedicated to providing everyone in our care with dignity, comfort and peace. This road can be a little less difficult to travel when you take a few moments to have this conversation. To help you get started, we offer a document called Five Wishes to help facilitate a conversation about personal and individual choices in critical situations. These discussions help everyone to better answer the question: What should we do now? An easy-to-use guide to making advanced directives, the Five Wishes booklet is available to all who request a copy. When filled out completely, it provides important direction and guidance for loved ones based on our personal, emotional and spiritual needs. The Five Wishes questions are: The person I want to make decisions for me when I cant, including choices for care and services, interpreting instructions, consent to admission and request or take away medical treatments; The kind of medical treatment I want or dont want, including life-support treatment decisions; How comfortable I want to be, including treatment of pain and nausea, bathing, massage, music, personal care and spiritual support; How I want people to treat me, including visitors, personal interactions, sharing information about the illness with members of a congregation or other group, and photos at the bedside; and What I want my loved ones to know (including a request to respect your wishes and how you would like your loved ones to interact with each other). The aforementioned Fort Myers Beach couple shared with me that they were surprised by how easy and rewarding it was to discuss their choices using the Five Wishes document. Once they started talking with their children about the special photos and music they wanted to become part of their environment during their end-of-life care, they realized the importance of having the conversation while they are able to. I encourage you to have this discussion with your loved ones. Then, simply record the information and add your signature to the Five Wishes booklet, which is valid under the laws of most states. Youll want to let someone you trust know that its completed and where it will be kept. You may also consider sharing your wishes with your clergy, doctor or other care providers.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 23-29, 2015 Seeking to put Gods love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. (Adult & Pediatric) MEET OUR PHYSICIANSPenny J. Orr, OD, MD, MD, OD, OD SWFLEYE.COM CALL TODAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT! BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickCharlotte Zappala was walking her Australian shepherd, Roxie, one morning when a coyote enticed the dog to come play. Roxie, who was off-leash, ran off, right into an ambush. Lucky for her, she escaped only with bites around the eye and on her paw. Coyotes are no longer a symbol of rural living. They live in Americas largest cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago and New York, where they make a fine living off garbage, pet food left outdoors, rodents and, yes, dogs and cats. Coyote attacks on pets, like the one Zappala experienced, usually occur during the wild dogs courting, mating and pupping season: late fall, winter and early spring. Mating season begins as early as November, with pups on the ground typically between April and June. Often, an individuals or communitys first response to the presence of coyotes is to want to trap and relocate or kill them. While that might be satisfying in the short term to people who fear the animals, its not a viable or desirable solution, says coyote biologist Jacqueline Frair, Ph.D., of State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse. Coyotes have a suite of biological mechanisms that kick in to rapidly grow their populations when they are under threat from hunting or other reduction efforts. Studies have shown that when coyote numbers are reduced, a higher proportion of females become pregnant, litter sizes become larger and the offspring of those litters have higher survival rates, Frair says. What should you do if you are walking your dog and encounter a coyote? A good offense is the best defense, as the saying goes. If you live in an area where you know there are coyotes, stay alert when walking your dog onor off-leash. Carry a walking stick, mace or bear spray that you can use to ward off a coyote that seems menacing. If you use mace or bear spray, be aware of the winds direction so you dont suffer blowback. If you dont have any of those items with you, throw rocks or yell at the coyote, and wave your arms or a hat at it. Most coyotes are shy and fearful and will run at any sign of aggression from you. Stand your ground. Running away will only incite the coyote to chase you and your dog, which is not the reaction you want. Even if you and your dog dont mean any harm, a coyote will be extra-protective if you and your dog unknowingly come near a den with pups. Be watchful during pupping season. Other strategies to keep coyotes at bay and pets from becoming prey: Secure garbage cans so that coyotes cant knock them over or knock the lid off. Feed pets indoors or take up food as soon as the animal is finished eating outdoors. Empty outdoor water dishes in the evening. Never offer food to coyotes. Cover or remove other sources of food that could attract coyotes, such as compost heaps, fallen fruit and birdseed spilled from feeders. Install motion-sensitive lighting to startle coyotes that enter the yard. Put up a solid, well-maintained fence at least 6 feet tall. A high fence with a roll bar on top is even better. Even in a fenced yard, accompany small or medium-size dogs outdoors if its very early in the morning or after dark. Trim shrubbery so it offers little cover. If you see a coyote lurking near your yard, shoo it away. Coyotes simply shouldnt learn to get comfortable around us, Frair says. PET TALESCoyote BluesCoyotes are a fact of urban life. Heres how to keep pets safeCoyotes are highly protective of pups. Walk your dog on a leash in wooded areas or other places that might be a coyote habitat.

Most of the news is bad. Gingham, the pattern made famous by Half-Pint and her older sister, Mary, on Little House on the Prairie, is skipping back down the fashion path. Im sorry, but it looks ridiculous on anyone older than 16. I cant believe theyre reviving gladiator sandals, but they are. A flat, clunky shoe that laces halfway up your calf isnt flattering. Even though Russell Crowe pulled it off in the movie of the same name, it doesnt work for us modern-day ladies. Now, these are actually exciting: lightweight trench coats in bright colors, perfect for those spring nights when the temperature dips into the 60s. Except this is Southwest Florida, where the temperature dips into the 60s only twice a year, both times in January. Obviously, we wont be rocking this particular spring trend around these parts (major hot flash trigger). Another fashion craze we wont be seeing much of, apparently, is the now infamous Lilly Pulitzer collection for Target, because it went on sale at 8 a.m. Sunday and was sold out even online by around 8:20 a.m. Ive said in this column before that Id love to be able to pull off the preppy princess look and wear the bright pinks and greens of Lilly Pulitzer, but it just doesnt work on me. There happened to be a white swimsuit cover-up caftan with a swirly blue print that I had a hankering for. It looked like something you might host a garden party in while sipping a Tom Collins and grooving to some Marvin Gaye on your record player. But I am not one to wake up early on a Sunday morning for anything, other than to catch a flight now and then. And according to several of my friends who set their alarms for the crack of dawn so they could be in line when their closest Target store opened, I most likely would have had a panic attack anyway. One pal said it was like Black Friday, as women rushed in and started randomly grabbing shift dresses, jumpsuits, swimsuits and shorts off the racks. I pictured an explosion of pink and green as I sighed with relief that I didnt have to experience it. I enjoy shopping, believe me, but I dont enjoy shopping amidst screeching southern belles who are crazy for Lilly. I did take a peek at the website when I arose at 11:30 Sunday morning, and anything I might have been interested in, including the glam caftan, was out of stock in every size. Im not sure about Targets marketing strategy here. (The same thing happened a few years back when the retailer collaborated with Italian designer Missoni. It was so hyped for months before, that by the time it was available, it sold out in a snap.) My friend Alison was disappointed not only by the fact that there was nothing left at her Target when she got there except a Lilly footstool, but by how rude her fellows shoppers were as they pushed into each other and actually ran to the racks. Im thinking chic, mannerly Palm Beach Lilly is rolling in her grave over the whole mess. Hopefully the bartender is mixing her a Tom Collins in heaven. Shed probably clutch her pearls if she knew that by Sunday night, eBay was filled with items from the Target collection all with original price tags intact, but going for up to triple the Target price. And since this was a onetime-only happening (stores will not be restocked), the prices will likely rise. And, honestly, when youre considering paying $200 for a Target garment, you may as well just spend another $50 and buy your Lilly from a fancy boutique. Some of my friends did well, however. Audre filled her cart with everything from plates to beach towels, Tammy scored several dresses and Katie was thrilled to end up with three colorful frocks (pictured here) for her 5-year-old daughter. Heres what Katie had to say about the whole thing: Im not sure if all this craziness says something about the overall popularity of the brand or the fact that it has been lusted after by women and girls for years, but has remained expensive. Like for me, for example, Ive never owned anything by Louis Vuitton I dont have that kind of money but if I could get it at Target for $38, you bet Id be there camping out the night before. As far as spring fashions go, I dont like gingham or gladiator sandals, and trench coats wont work in this heat, but if any of you lucked into a Lilly garden party caftan, Id love to borrow it sometime.

He sells calf after calf, 225 or so per hour, 2,400 head one recent week at different markets, mostly to professional buyers, before theyre shipped to ranches in the west or northern states. His voice has rarely failed him in more than three decades calling bids. I just kind of say my numbers, say my numbers in a song, explained Mr. Bailey, who is 53 and lives in Lake City with his wife Kelly and family, where they own a U-pick vegetable farm. The good Lord just blessed me with a tongue that rolls, thats all I can say. That auctioneers chant is one of the professions mostly widely recognizable features, although it might be slowed down or dispensed with altogether depending on the occasion. Valuable art or the belongings of the recently deceased carry a certain gravitas, for instance, that cattle generally dont. Auctioneers or auction businesses must be licensed in Florida in most cases, and the property owner normally pays them with a percentage of the selling price. The sales are loaded with anything from priceless art to prizes sold for charity. COURTESY PHOTOAuctioneer Scott Robertson presided over more than 80 nonprofit auctions in 2014.

Additional conditions may apply**Homeownership doesnt have to be a dream. With USDA Guaranteed Rural Housing Program IT CAN BE A REALITY! Why is USDA such a great choice for nancing? USDA offers:Last week at our auction I sold a 6-foot elephant husk from the s that was engraved on both sides and it was just a gorgeous piece of art, said Mike Joyce, owner of Gulfcoast Coin & Jewelry, which holds live auctions that take place at one of two 10,000-squarefoot galleries, in Fort Myers or Bonita Springs, as well as live on the Internet. Punta Gorda-based auctioneer Jack Robillard has sold old mortuary equipment, grandfather clocks, jewelry, a soot-covered painting by Edward Willis Redfield (it had been hung above a fireplace but after being cleaned went for $327,000), and an entire farm in Pennsylv ania, near where he has a second home. The owner had hoped to get $2.3 million but fierce competition between two men pushed the winning bid to $3 million. One was calling the other a little pissant, Mr. Robillard recalls. Auctions for a causeIf Mr. Baileys chant is more about speed and efficiency, moving a high volume of product, Scott Robertsons style as a benefit auctioneer, raising money for nonprofits, is part entertainer, part comedian, part minister, part actor. Whereas Mr. Bailey might sell hundreds of items per hour to pros used to fast talk, Mr. Robertson sells 20 to those with average ears and deep pockets; and instead of peppermints he swears by Throat Coat tea and lukewarm water to keep his vocal chords buzzing. In 2014, he presided over 80 auctions, raising more than $28 million. He and his staff organize some of the top fundraising events of the year for many local nonprofits such as the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest, which raises money for the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. During high season, roughly September through April, he works constantly as an auctioneer for events such as the Community School of Naples Angel Ball, Magic Under the Mangroves in Naples, and the Sonoma Harvest Wine Auction in Sonoma County, Calif. For me to inspire an audience, first of all I have to be inspired by the charity, Mr. Robertson said. So Im going to do my homework ahead of time. Once I understand that information and internalize it, now Im suddenly a passionate ambassador for the cause. And I wont work for an organization if I dont believe in the mission. Mr. Robertson, who is 54, lives with his wife, Mary, in Matlacha. Sometime in May, he trades in the tuxedos and colorful vests he wears for a wetsuit and lifejacket: he and his wife are long-time whitewater rafting guides for Adventures On the Gorge in West Virginia over the summer. Shooting the rapids and benefit auctioneering have their similarities, he points out: Both of em youre living in the moment. When you drop into the top of a rapid you better be focused on the job at hand. Youve gotta have presence and youve gotta have confidence.Third generation auctioneerMr. Bailey has been auctioneering professionally since the 1980s primarily at livestock markets. Mr. Robillard was a commercial airline captain before he started an auctioneering business in Punta Gorda and Michigan. Mr. Robertson was a high school teacher and sold commercial real estate before starting his company as a benefit auctioneer. One of Mr. Robertsons staff members, Sara Rose Bytnar, is unique in that she is a third generation auctioneer, as well as one of five women in a family of auctioneers that includes her grandfather, mother and three aunts. I think generally speaking it is a male dominated industry, Ms. Bytnar said. For me growing up in my family I didnt know anything differently. Where I grew up in Ohio people knew to expect the Rose girls. Thats just how it was. We are very strong confident personalities so it was never an issue of that. At 29, she has shown a gift for the job, as a state champion in the 2014-15 Florida Auctioneers Association bid calling competition and a major honor in the industry the first runner-up at the 2014 International Auctioneer Championship. Contestants are judged by some of the worlds best auctioneers on their appearance, confidence, stage presence, describing an item, and overall salesmanship. She is from Whitehouse, Ohio, a small town near Toledo, where her late grandfather was a real estate broker who became an auctioneer in the 1980s. In 2009, Ms. Bytnar and her husband, Brandon, moved to Southwest Florida where their families had vacationed. While her mom and aunts have separate businesses (and are also competitors) in Ohio, auctioning real estate, cars and other items, Ms. Bytnar has found her niche in benefit auctions here, an area rich in philanthropic giving. As an ambassador for a nonprofit, youre not just selling items youre selling the emotion of the cause, she said. And that comes down to a professional auctioneer that knows how to leverage the stories and emotions that are tied to a great group.

The steady growth of our company has required us to identify larger facilities for the servicing of our vehicles, says Randy Smith, CEO. As we researched this venture, we found a lot of other businesses such as landscape contractors, air-conditioning firms and pest control firms who had the same needs for vehicle servicing. The NT&T fleet maintenance division occupies 2 acres and provides 5,500 square feet of industrial workspace. NT&T has hired three Automotive Service Excellence-certified mechanics and intends to expand further as the business grows. The facility will be open seven days a week and will provide all aspects of fleet repairs and maintenance. Based in Naples, NT&T has been operating in Collier County for more than 25 years and is among the regions largest transportation and destination management companies, employing more than 80 associates and operating a fleet 54 luxury vehicles. In addition to providing ground transportation, NT&T is a full-service destination management company that works with Fortune 500 companies to handle all aspects of conventions and meetings held in Southwest Florida.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Retirement Plans for the Self-EmployedIf youre self-employed, youre not out of luck when it comes to retirement plans. Your main options are the SEP IRA, the SIMPLE IRA and the solo 401(k) plan, which allow you to deduct your contributions, let your earnings grow tax-deferred and get taxed on withdrawals in retirement. The solo 401(k) plan also offers a Roth option, working like a Roth IRA, where you contribute post-tax money, claim no deduction up front, but eventually withdraw funds tax-free in retirement. The SEP (Simplified Employee Pension) IRA lets employers or self-employed individuals contribute to an account thats subject to the withdrawal and tax rules of traditional IRAs. Its contribution limits are far higher, though, at the lesser of 25 percent of compensation or $53,000 in 2015 for most folks. Its easy to set up and has low administrative costs. A SIMPLE (Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees) IRA is a tax-favored retirement plan that self-employed individuals set up for themselves, or that small employers set up for themselves and their employees. Contributions must go to a SIMPLE IRA. They cannot be added to your existing IRA. The contribution limit for employees is $12,500 in 2015, plus $3,000 for those ages 50 and up. A solo 401(k) plan, also known as a one-participant 401(k), is a traditional 401(k) plan for a business owner, or for the owner and his or her spouse. The owner can make both elective-deferral contributions from compensation of up to $18,000 in 2015 ($24,000 for those ages 50 and up) and employer non-elective contributions, with all contributions capped at $53,000 in 2015. Each plan has more rules regarding contributions, withdrawals and how to set up the plan. If you have no employees and want the easiest plan to administer, consider the SEP IRA. If you want to contribute the absolute maximum to your plan, the solo 401(k) plan might be better. If you have employees and you want to limit your responsibility for contributions, check out the SIMPLE IRA. Self-employed folks can also contribute to traditional or Roth IRAs if they qualify. Hearsay HurtsIm a rookie investor, and so far my dumbest investment has been in a biotechnology stock that crashed by 40 percent over the past year. Ive learned never to rely solely on an online discussion board or article comments for my info. Always check out the company, Google the heck out of it, research, research, research, and dont fall for someones story about how much money he has already made on it, or why it will skyrocket.When seeking investments, we tend to be overly positive and naive, seeing good things but ignoring warning signs. If you do not view what others say with a skeptical eye, you are likely to be suckered into a bad investment. My bad investment was a good learning experience. Luckily, I didnt invest in it heavily and didnt lose too much B.K., Reno, NevadaThe Fool Responds: Amen. Many online commentators arent trying to sucker you, but are just naive themselves. And smart and knowledgeable commentators can err sometimes, too. Every investor makes blunders. Do your own research and make your own decisions, so your blunders are really yours. Magic for Your PortfolioStock in Walt Disney (NYSE: DIS) has rewarded shareholders with a 16 percent average annual return over the past 30 years, and the company, big as it is, is actually picking up steam, averaging 26 percent gains over the past five years. Disney is a major player in broadcasting (with ABC and ESPN), in movies and in resorts. Profits from its resorts rose by 20 percent between 2013 and 2014. A massive new park is opening in Shanghai in 2016, which is expected to get more traffic than the companys flagship Magic Kingdom in Florida. Pixar, Marvel and Lucasfilm are now part of Disneys movie business, which has produced many massive blockbusters, such as Frozen and Guardians of the Galaxy. Expected in 2015 are Marvel titles Avengers: Age of Ultron and AntMan, Pixar films Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur, and Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. Disneys hits become lucrative franchises, with sequels, consumer merchandise, theme park attractions and more. Disneys dividend yield of close to 1.1 percent isnt a lot, but its payout has more than tripled since 2009 and has more room to grow. With its P/E ratio recently near 24, Disney stock isnt a screaming bargain, but its likely to reward longterm investors to infinity and beyond. Buy some shares now or add it to your watch list. (The Motley Fool owns and has recommended Disney.) I trace my history back to the 1940s and an orthopedic surgeon in Kalamazoo, Michigan, who invented better medical products than the ones available to him. Early items include a turning frame to rotate immobile patients and an oscillating saw to cut casts. Today Im a global leader in medical technology, with products that include spinal implants, waste management systems, endoscopy cameras, hospital beds, ambulance cots, replacement hips and knees, and robotic surgery systems. I hold more than 5,000 patents and employ more than 25,000 people worldwide. My revenue has been growing for 34 consecutive years. Who am I? (Answer: Stryker) Tax InversionsQWhats a tax inversion? G.F., Forsyth, IllinoisAA tax inversion happens when a company becomes a subsidiary of another company in another country, in order to take advantage of more favorable tax rules in that country. Many American companies have done this in recent years, and the Obama administration has taken steps to reduce its appeal as an option.One of the biggest examples is the recent $50 billion acquisition of health care company Covidien by medical device giant Medtronic. Medtronic was originally based in Minnesota, but its now calling Covidiens home base of Ireland its home, and enjoying Irelands lower corporate tax rates. Similarly, Florida-based Burger King bought Canadas Tim Hortons, lowering its overall tax burden.***QWhich women lead S&P 500 companies? K.J., Bellevue, NebraskaAWomen recently headed only 23 of the 500 companies in the S&P 500 not quite even 5 percent.Here are the 23: General Motors (Mary Barra), Mylan (Heather Bresch), Xerox (Ursula Burns), Ventas (Debra Cafaro), Reynolds American (Susan Cameron), Oracle (Safra Catz, co-CEO), Duke Energy (Lynn Good), Lockheed Martin (Marillyn Hewson), DuPont (Ellen Kullman), HCP (Lauralee Martin), Gannett (Gracia Martore), Yahoo! (Marissa Mayer), Avon (Sheri McCoy), TJX (Carol Meyrowitz), KeyCorp (Beth Mooney), Campbell Soup (Denise Morrison), PepsiCo (Indra Nooyi), General Dynamics (Phebe Novakovic), Sempra Energy (Debra Reed), Ross Stores (Barbara Rentler), IBM (Virginia Rometty), Mondelez International (Irene Rosenfeld) and Hewlett-Packard (Meg Whitman).The small showing is a shame not only because women make up about half the population, but also because women leaders perform well. A recent study found that the 80 Fortune 1000 companies led by women between 2002 and 2014 produced equity gains of more than three times that of the S&P 500. Got a question for the Fool?

NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). Most notable in the report is the $300,000-$500,000 category for condominiums, in which the overall closed and pending sales increased by double digits in the first quarter of 2015. Statistics show a recent shift in buyer focus from single-family homes to condominiums. Broker analysts reviewing the first-quarter report agree that a new trend may be emerging, as the report shows condominiums outperforming single-family home sales. As such, these analysts predict condominiums will see continued rise in activity moving into summer. Pending and closed sales in the mid-level price range for both March and first quarter outperformed all other areas of the market, according to Phil Wood, president and CEO of John R. Wood Properties. Perhaps this is reflective of vacation home buyers who want a place to escape the winter weather, Mr. Wood says. Condos are the easiest way for them to do so, since exterior maintenance issues are handled by the associations. The difference in performance between the single-family home market and condo market in the $300,000-$500,000 category for the first quarter is quite impressive, says Steve Barker, advising broker for Equity Realty. In that category, NABOR numbers show condo sales outperforming single-family homes SEE NABOR, B24 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________

Harbourside to Start Aviano Model in Corsica at Talis ParkTalis Park announced that Harbourside Custom Homes is poised to begin construction of its furnished Aviano model residence in Corsica, a new neighborhood within the gated golf course community in North Naples. Developer Kitson & Partners recently expanded the communitys single-family home site offering by releasing twelve of the twenty-four home sites in Corsica. Corsicas north-facing home sites offer water and multiple fairway views and are situated adjacent to the new Talis Park Sports Complex. Twentythree of the Corsica home sites measure 65 or 77-feet and will accommodate residences from 3,000 to 4,500 square feet. One 90-foot site is also available. Residences in Corsica will be built by Harbourside, Sunwest Homes, and Fox Custom Builders. Three and four bedroom plus study residences will showcase Italian, Caribbean Colonial, Spanish Eclectic architectural styles. Home and lot packages are available from $1.6 million. In addition to Corsica, Harbourside is a Participating Custom Builder in Talis Parks Seneca, Fairgrove, and Brightling neighborhoods. The Avianos great room floor plan, a spacious outdoor living area, and a three-car garage offer a total of over 4,000 square feet with nearly 3,000 square feet under air. The plan features three bedrooms, threeand-a-half baths, a study, a formal dining room, and a spacious island kitchen and breakfast nook. The outdoor living area includes a pool and spa with a screened colonnade surround and pavered deck, a fireplace, and a summer kitchen. Construction of the Aviano model is expected to begin by the beginning of May. Pricing will be determined as construction progresses. Corsica is situated adjacent to Talis Parks new Sports Complex and south entry gate scheduled for completion this fall. The approximately three-acre Sports Complex will feature six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts with pavilions for resting between matches, a tennis pro shop and clubhouse with restrooms and a beverage center, four bocce ball courts, a fifty-foot two-lane lap pool, and landscaped areas. A green space will provide a gathering and event place reminiscent of the communitys Great Lawn located at Talis Parks Grand Piazza. The Sports Complex will complete the array of amenities Kitson has designed to enhance Talis Parks healthoriented lifestyle. The entry gate at the south end of Talis Park Drive will provide access to the community via Veterans Memorial Parkway. The south entry will include a guard house and a private entry lane for residents. Kitson will create a memorable approach to the communitys south entrance with significant landscaping enhancements along approximately 1,000-feet of Veterans Memorial Parkway between the south entry gate and Livingston Road. Both the Sports Complex and the south entry gate are expected to be completed by late fall of this year. Corsica residents will enjoy the dining, fitness, and spa facilities at the communitys Vyne House clubhouse. Construction of the 26,470 square feet under air, multi-level Phase II of the Vyne House clubhouse is underway and on schedule for completion in late November of this year. Talis Parks residents continue to enjoy dining at Fionas Market Caf, working out at the worldclass Core Fitness Center, and relaxing at the Esprit Spa that opened at Vyne House in December of 2013.

Phase II site work and infrastructure, including grading and excavation work for the foundation and the installation of water, sewer, and drainage lines, have been completed. Vertical construction is progressing as planned. The building shell has been completed and provides a risen structure offering a sense of the buildings design and scale. The building will be completely dried in before the summer rainy season allowing interior finishing work to be completed without weather related delays. Phase II will introduce Vyne Court, an open-air courtyard that is the centerpiece of Vyne House. In addition to serving as a point of entry, Vyne Court will be used as a social space perfectly suited to hosting a variety of events. The upper level will also include formal indoor dining, casual indoor and outdoor dining, a multi-purpose room adjacent to Vyne Court, aerobics and cardio workout rooms, and a uniquely designed Wine Room/Board Room. The lower level of Vyne House Phase II will host the golf pro shop as well as the mens and ladies locker rooms. Phase II will also include the completion of a resort style pool with a large pool deck as well as a stately rotunda that will feature an oversized, two-sided fireplace and overlook the 18th green. In addition to the Sports Complex and Vyne House, Talis Parks amenities include a golf course that is one of just two Greg Norman-Pete Dye designed golf courses in the world.

VILLAGE WALK MUST SEE HOMEhe adds, pending sales for condominiums increased 53 percent. While the single-family home market is very good, he adds, pending sales for single-family homes in the same price category increased only half that, at 26 percent. Supporting analysis presented by Cindy Carroll of the real estate appraisal and consultancy firm Carroll & Carroll Inc., at NABOR Economic Summit earlier this month, several brokers point out that the first-quarter market report indicates location as a big factor in home sales activity. Mike Hughes remarks that the overall median closed price in all geo-specific areas of the county increased double digits compared to the same quarter last year. In both the central Naples and south Naples areas, Kathy Zorn adds, the median closed price rose 17 percent compared to the first quarter of 2014. Overall inventory for the $300,000$500,000 category in the first quarter of 2015 increased 14 percent, from 934 homes in the first quarter of 2014 to 1,061 homes in the first quarter of 2015. Only the inventory in the over-$2 million category had a larger increase 18 percent, expanding from 400 homes in the first quarter of 2014 to 471 homes in the first quarter of 2015. The number of people paying cash for their homes remains strong, Mr. Barker says, adding that 73 percent of all home sales in the first quarter of 2015 were cash-only purchases. Strict lending standards combined with low inventory continue to give the advantage to cash buyers in this housing market, he says. Bill Poteet of Poteet Properties says traditional sales dominated the market at 91 percent. There were 921 traditional sales and only 19 non-traditional (short sale and/or foreclosed) sales, Mr. Poteet says. He also notes that the March market performance is typically a leading indicator of whats to come in summer. The NABOR 2015 first-quarter market report provides comparisons of singlefamily home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Here are some of the overall findings: Overall pending sales increased 3 percent, from 3,532 in first-quarter 2014 to 3,628 in the same period this year. Pending sales in the single-family home market increased 5 percent, from 1,563 to 1,634. Pending sales in the condominium market increased 1 percent, from 1,969 condos in first-quarter 2014 to 1,994 this year. Overall closed sales decreased 4 percent, from 2,409 to 2,312 in firstquarter this year compared with firstquarter 2014. In the $0-$300,000 category, closed sales for single-family homes decreased 13 percent, from 473 single-family homes in first-quarter 2014 to 412 in 2015. First-quarter closed sales for singlefamily homes increased 14 percent in the $300,000-$500,000 category, from NABORFrom page 1

I teach these writing classes, and theyre the best part of my week. Dont tell my students, but I like them so much Id do it for free. As it stands now, I happen to make a little cash from the teaching, mad money that I keep in an envelope tucked into my bookcase. When I have enough saved up, I like to buy something nice for my new home. Recently, Id been obsessing about a pot. Along the front of my house, I grow flowers gardenias, roses, hibiscus and I got it in my head last month to add one of those salmon-pink bougainvilleas. So I needed a pot. A lovely, regallooking pot that would sit at the corner of my cottage and hold the bright bougainvillea spilling out. I looked everywhere for this pot, at garden stores and design outlets. Eventually I found myself at one of those pottery places that measure their stock in acreage, the kind with golf carts for touring the options. I searched all over that place until I found one. It wasnt exactly what I wanted, but I assured myself it was fine. So I pulled out my envelope of cash and purchased the not-quite-right-butmaybe-I-just-dont-know-it-well-enough pot. I loaded it into my car. And I worried about it all the way home. I worried as I set it in front of my house. I worried as I bought the bougainvillea to go inside. I worried every morning as I stood in my front yard scrutinizing. Was it right? I think its the kind of pot you grow to love, one neighbor said. Grow to love? Is that even possible? I tell you all this because people have been asking about the weeklong visit from the man Ive been seeing, a writer in New York whom I like but Im not sure how much. The visit felt a lot like my new pot. All week I kept asking myself, is this right? Does he fit in my life? In some moments, the answer was yes. Unequivocally, yes. And in others? No. Unfortunately, no. Id sneak up on him while he was reading on the porch or frying eggs at the st ove, unguarded moments when he didnt know I was watching, and Id try to see if, maybe, from that angle, we were a good match. He seems nice, friends said after meeting him, which was about as helpful as the opinions on my pot. I want to say that Im being too hard on things, that a single week is not enough to make any kind of decision. But I know what love feels like. I know that if the seed of it is not there in the beginning, love can never grow, never bloom. Some people spend a lifetime convincing themselves otherwise. Me? I refuse to do that. So the visit was inconclusive. At least, thats what Ive been telling people. But I suppose, if Im honest, Ive already made my decision. And the pot? I returned it last week.

mid-May, locals can enjoy dozens of the highest achievements in music, art, film and cuisine from France. A gala Soiree de Cabaret takes place Thursday, April 30, at the Club Pelican Bay. From a gallery exhibition of graphic artist Bernard Villemots famed advertisements to French flower arranging and modern opera, the ArtsNaples World Festival 2015 aims to cover the depth and breadth of an artistic culture that looms large in our cultural conscience but doesnt often make its way to Southwest Florida. The culture of France inhabits our lives on virtually every level, William Noll, ArtsNaples artistic director, says. Making programming choices, he adds, was not as easy as it sounds. French culture spans multiple disciplines and multiple centuries. About 50 events make up the schedule this year. ArtsNaples World Festival began in 2010 when the organization sponsored a performance of the Odessa Philharmonic Orchestra from Ukraine. Since then, the festival has focused on a different country or region each year and has also expanded a bit each year, rallying arts organizations and venues throughout the area to open their doors to visiting artists. So far, Latin America, Russia, Italy and now France have been featured. What we want to do with this festival is to present new productions innovative, avant-garde productions that are based in the classical tradition and that can showcase these wonderful venues, Trey Farmer, ArtsNaples World Festival board chairman, explains. Bringing international talent to the local scene, he adds, is the best of both worlds. Audiences dont often have the chance to hear such artists and compositions in small venues like those the board has selected, including the Bower Chapel at Moorings Park and Moorings Presbyterian Church, he says. Its a very different experience than in a large concert hall where youre a hundred rows away from the performer. Musical highlights this year include a modern adaptation of Bizets La Tragedie de Carmen with mezzosoprano Carla Dirlakov singing the lead (Friday and Saturday, May 1-2, at the David and Cecile Wang Opera Center), a program of French art songs by lyric soprano Julia Lima (Sunday, May 3, at The von Liebig Art Center), a cabaret performance by Grammywinner Sylvia McNair (Monday, May 4, at the Sugden Community Theatre) and two recitals by organist Bryan Anderson from The Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia (Tuesday, May 5, at Moorings Presbyterian Church). Theres such a unique opportunity with French repertoire that you dont have with other cultures, Mr. Noll says. Our big symphony concert features not only a full symphonic orchestra, but also an organ. You dont have unique instrumentation such as this they dont have this type of repertoire in other cultures. Despite its relatively short history, ArtsNaples World Festival is starting to gain national and international attention. Last year, violinist Nadir Khashimov was able to book at performance at the Louvre in Paris thanks to the buzz he created after playing all 24 of Paganinis Caprices at the Naples festival, according to Mr. Noll. It was such a great success that they found out about it in Paris, he says. Naples is a very lucky place to have people coming from all regions of the earth.French film, foodIn addition to the performing arts, the 2015 festival celebrates French cinematography and cuisine. Film screenings will take place at several venues with introductions by surprise guests from Hollywood and the opportunity for discussion at postscreening receptions. Tickets are $22. Heres the lineup: Francois Truffauts Le Quatre Cent Coup (400 Blows), 1959 A resourceful Parisian boy runs headlong into a life of crime. Screening at 1 p.m. Monday, April 27, at Headquarters Library, 2385 Orange Blossom Drive. Le Regle du Jeu (Rules of the Game), 1939 A multi-faceted look at relations between men and women. Screening at 2 p.m. Tuesday, April 28, at Moorings Park. A Bout de Souffle (Breathless), 1960 A small-time thief murders a policeman and convinces an American journalism student to run away with him to Italy. Screening at 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 29, at Clive Daniel Home. Les Parapluies de Cherbourg (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg), 1964 A young girl separated from her fianc by war faces a life-altering decision. Screening at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 9, at Moorings Park. After the success of last years foodrelated programming, the culinary aspect of ArtsNaples World Festival has expanded this year. Events include A Cocktail Party a la Francaise lunch and small-bites demonstration (Monday, May 4, at La Bazenne restaurant), Demystifying the Truffle over lunch with Lisa Boet of Chez Boet French caf (Tuesday, May 5, at the caf), Inspired by the Sea demonstration and lunch (Wednedsay, May 6, at Sea Salt), Tea and French Flower Arranging (Thursday, May 7, at The Garden District), Beloved French Favorites demonstration and lunch (Friday, May 8, at Le Lafayette) and The Mothers of French Gastronomy, an interactive cooking class and dinner (Sunday, May 10, at La Bazenne). Proceeds from the festival benefit the organizations education initiatives to bring the arts to local children. Its partnership with Fun Time Early Learning Academy takes music and motion classes to preschoolers, and the festivals visiting artists often perform and conduct workshops at area middle and high schools. The organization also runs a year-round program that provides performances, demonstrations and master classes to local students. A gala, Soiree de Cabaret, is scheduled for Thursday, April 30 at the Club at Pelican Bay, where guests will enjoy cabaret singers, showgirls, dancers and more as they take a sidewalk stroll and enjoy culinary treats from cafes. Tickets are $352. Mr. Noll plans to announce a few of next years ArtsNaples World Festival events this year, including an opening performances by the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, and says the board has settled on a 2016 theme of The Best of All Worlds. www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 23-29, 2015 FRANCEFrom page 1 ArtsNaples World Festival>> What: Multiple performances and events celebrating the culture of France >> When: April 27-May 10 >> Where: Various locations in Naples >> Details and reservations: 390-2788 or artsnaplesworldfestival.com COURTESY PHOTOThe Jasper String Quartet performs works by Debussy and Ravel at 2 p.m. Wednesday, May 6, at The von Liebig Art Center.

BOUTIQUE AND FINE CONSIGNMENT The Naples Players will hold auditions for the adult and teen summer productions of Legally Blonde, the Musical, by appointment only beginning noon Saturday, May 2, at the Sugden Community Theatre. For the adult production, four principal women (three ages 18-35 and one age 35-50) and four supporting women (ages 16-30) are needed. Three principal men (two ages 20-30 and one age 40-65) and one supporting male (age 25-45) are needed. Those auditioning should be physically fit and comfortable showing their body. A large singing and dancing ensemble (ages 16-60) with multiple small parts is also required. When casting for the KidzAct version of the musical, ages 14-18 will be considered for all roles. Adult rehearsals begin May 18. Performance dates are July 8-Aug.9. Teen rehearsals begin June 29, and performances are Aug. 14-16. What does an eternally optimistic, perky sorority girl do when she loses the man of her dreams? She applies to Harvard Law School to win him back, duh! Based on the book and movie of the same name, Legally Blonde, the Musical is a fun, energetic and funny look at Elle Woods and how she defies expectations by proving that being true to yourself never goes out of style. Perusal scripts are available at the box office with a $20 deposit. The box office is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

The romantic comedy of unrequited love ends with a happy wedding, but not before the characters fall prey to love and hurt. Yellow stockings, false letters and ridiculous sword fights ensue. Some confusions sort out nicely and some do not, but the characters are memorable, the language sublime and the clowns sing.

ARTS COMMENTARYThis is not my beautiful house (but I wish it were)The building is white. Crisp, starched, clean-shirt white. Blindingly white, like sunlight on an avalanche. White like a blank page full of possibility. Its a Saturday afternoon, and Im standing in front of Sarasota High School, filled with wonder at the structure in front of me. Im struck dumb by its beauty, its creative lines, by the sheer audacity of its existence. Im standing with a group of other people, all equally in awe of whats in front of us. Its an incredible moment. The white of the building cuts a jagged pattern out of the blue Florida sky. Up at the top of the stairs, in the schools open courtyard entrance, a rectangle cut out of the roof reveals more sky. (It makes me think of James Turrells skyspace piece at the nearby Ringling museum.) Up close, Im surprised to discover the front of the school is actually a faade of pre-cast concrete sunscreens placed many feet in front of the building so as to shade the school from direct sunlight. Looking at it from a distance, you think its the actual front of the building, not realizing its detached. Architect Carl Abbott spoke at a symposium organized by the Sarasota Architectural Foundation back in 2012. He said that while the high school was being built, architects came from all over the world to see it, because it was breaking new architectural ground. A few years ago, the city of Sarasota had plans to tear it down, but Mr. Abbott, and others advocated its preservation as an important work of architecture. The group of us standing in the front of the school is on the last leg of a daylong bus tour hosted by the Edison & Ford Winter Estates. Weve been riding around Sarasota, looking at prime examples of mid-century modern architecture homes and public structures built in between 1941 and 1966. In particular, weve been looking at buildings of The Sarasota School of Architecture, a style internationally known and admired. During that era, architects were coming up with creative solutions for living in this sub-tropical climate. Their buildings are characterized by minimalism and open floor plans, which helps aid air circulation. (Homes did not have air conditioning then.) Sunscreens made of wood or pre-cast concrete helped protect buildings from the sun, yet allowed diffuse light in. The architects were learning how to live in this climate and translate it into a vocabulary that was very Southwest Florida, to build more energy-efficient homes, says Fort Myers architect Joyce Owens, who helped organize the tour. We began the day in the Lido Shores neighborhood, which has a high concentration of mid-century modern homes. Our first stop was the Umbrella House, designed by Paul Rudolph in 1953 and declared by Architectural Digest as one of the five most remarkable homes of the mid-20th century. It was also featured on the cover of the Summer 2001 issue of Florida History & the Arts: A Magazine of Floridas Heritage. Its called the Umbrella House because of the freestanding trellis-like overhanging structure above it, with thin strips of wood that help block the sun and also create interesting shadows on the house. Its only 2,000 square feet, but this cube of a house possesses multiple levels. The upstairs bedrooms, one on either side of the house, are joined by a wood bridge or narrow loft. The walls of one bedroom are in panels on tracks; they can be opened to allow for greater circulation of the air. Downstairs, the front of a built-in dresser is flush with the bedroom wall. On the other side of the wall, in the living room, the rectangular protrusion works as a mantel or a display shelf, to hold books, vases or photographs. The front of the house, with its two stories of jalousie windows, is an intriguing grid of horizontal and vertical lines in different textures, primarily wood and glass. Its almost like a Mondrian painting except the architect used natural materials, not primary colors. The only color on the building is the yellow front and side doors and the narrow strip of an aqua pool in the backyard. (The doorknob, lock and eyehole are the only circular things on this building of rectangles.) Mr. Rudolph also designed Sarasota High School and other gems, including the Walker Guest House on Sanibel Island. The man was a genius; his buildings won numerous awards and are pointed to as the epitome of the Sarasota School of Architecture. (The Sarasota Architectural Foundation even has little pins that say, simply: Rudolph.) The day included a bus tour of other mid-century structures throughout Sarasota, including a quick stop at the Van Wezel Performing Art Hall. I admit, Id never seen the building during the day, having only attended shows in the evening. The bright light made it easier to see the architectural details near the roof (though Im still not sure I like that Barney-dinosaur purple). One surprising visit was a stop at New College of Florida, which is close to the Ringling, to see a set of dormitories and a student union designed by I.M. Pei 50 years ago. (He since went on to design the John F. Kennedy Library in Massachusetts and the glass and steel pyramid for the Louvre in Paris, among other notable buildings.) You might not think a college campus could be that exciting, but the more you looked around New College, the more details you saw: the grove of palm trees set in diagonally placed squares of dirt, the shallow set of brick steps in the student union that seem to stretch on for a city block. And then we stopped at Sarasota High School before returning home, house-happy and drunk on the beauty of creative architecture and design. The bus trip to Sarasota was part of a series of Director Tours hosted by the Edison & Ford Winter Estates.

By Linda ThistlePlace a number in the empty boxes in such a way that each row across, each column down and each small 9-box square contains all of the numbers from one to nine.Sponsored By: Moderate Challenging ExpertPuzzle Difficulty this week: SEE ANSWERS, C11 SEE ANSWERS, C11 TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Accepting new commitments when you havent yet finished the batch on hand could be a bit rash. Better to ease up on the new ones until you get further along with your current lot. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Reward yourself for whats sure to be a dynamic week with a getaway to someplace wonderful, hopefully with a wonderful someone. Youll return refreshed and ready for whats ahead. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Some people might be anxious about your plans. So you need to take time to explain what you expect to do and how you expect do it. And dont forget to ask for suggestions. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Dealing with an unfamiliar problem can be difficult. The wisest course you can take is to ask for advice from those who have been where you are and have come through it. Good luck. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Tackle a frustrating job problem by considering possibilities you might have ignored before. This reassures colleagues youre serious about finding a solution, even if its not totally yours. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your balanced approach to life proves to be helpful this week when someone you care for needs your spiritual comfort, while someone else benefits from your tough-love practicality. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Once again, youre likely to be asked to keep a secret for someone. But do you really want to do so? Be honest with yourself and with your needs before you make any such commitment. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Taking a more direct approach from the more diplomatic one youve used before could make a difference in finally resolving a too-long-held disagreement. Try it. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Being asked for advice is flattering to the Sea Goat, who has a habit of saying the right thing. This time, expect someone to be especially impressed and to act on that sentiment. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) With a number of pressures easing, your project could be making a lot more progress than you expected by this time. Thats great news. But dont let yourself be distracted; stay with it. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) An interesting challenge looms that could be exactly what youve been looking for. Discuss this with colleagues who could have much to contribute and who might want to join with you. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The Lamb is usually excited about taking on a new challenge. But if thats a touch of doubt youre feeling, maybe its you telling yourself to go slow on this until you learn more about it. BORN THIS WEEK: Your heart is always open to offer loving concern for others. And they, in turn, reach out to complete the circle. PUZZLES

Rated R.Furious 7 (Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jason Statham) Deckard Shaw (Mr. Statham) seeks revenge on Dom (Mr. Diesel) and his crew after they crippled Shaws brother Owen (Luke Evans) in Fast & Furious 6. The storys a bit convoluted, but who cares? The action is fast and fun, making this a pure adrenaline rush. Rated PG-13.Woman in Gold (Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Bruhl) A Holocaust survivor (Ms. Mirren) asks an unproven lawyer (Mr. Reynolds) to help retrieve a painting she believes belongs to her; years ago it was seized by the Nazis, and it is now in the possession of the Austrian government. The main storyline of the quest for the painting is a fascinating watch, but flashbacks to Holocaust Austria are a bore. Rated PG-13.Get Hard (Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Alison Brie) Millionaire financial manager James King (Mr. Ferrell) has 30 days to learn how to survive in prison from Darnell (Mr. Hart). Mr. Ferrell and Mr. Hart lack chemistry, and the story is as predictable as they come. Rated R.

SUSHI HAPPY HOUR 5-6:30 P.M. & 9-10 P.M. BUY ONE NIGIRI, GET ONE LATEST FILMSThe Water DivinerIs it worth $10? NoAt the start of the horribly titled The Water Diviner, Russell Crowes Joshua Connor is in the Australian desert looking for a place to dig for water. He divines a spot and starts digging. Hours later theres a 15-foot hole thats at least 5 feet wide. Joshua strikes a metal bar into the ground and water bubbles to the surface. Its a win for him, but all I kept thinking was how dumb hed feel if he were wrong. That what if hes wrong? feeling pervades the film. Soon Joshua is on a quest to find his three missing sons, who presumably were killed in action during World War I four years earlier. He wants to exhume their bodies and bring the bones back home to Australia. The problem is the young men were allegedly killed in Gallipoli, Turkey, in 1915 during a battle that killed 70,000 men. And Joshuas skills (per the title) are with divining the location of water, not his sons skulls from dirt and mud. But no matter: The plot needs Joshua to have this ability, so he has it. It comes in handy later when hes able to envision exactly how his sons died so we (the audience) can also see it. Oddly, the fact that hes not a religious man makes it a bit more believable. Mr. Crowe also directed the film, and along with writers Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios intended the story as homage to the 100-year anniversary of the Gallipoli campaign. Needed background: During WWI the British and French, with heavy support from the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC), invaded the Gallipoli peninsula. The hope was to secure the area to prevent a naval attack on Russia, a British ally. However, Turkish forces (then still part of the Ottoman Empire) rebuffed numerous attacks over the course of nine months, leading to heavy casualties for both sides. Strife between Turkey and Australia/New Zealand endured for years. It is important to point out these facts because theyre not common knowledge to Americans, and not knowing them can lead to confusion regarding who hates who and why throughout the film. To wit: On his way to Gallipoli, Joshua stops in Istanbul and stays at a hotel run by Ayshe (Olga Kurylenko), her 10-year-old son Orhan (Dylan Georgiades) and her brother-in-law Omer (Steve Bastoni). Theres tension, of course, because Joshua is Australian and theyre Turkish. But as happens in many war movies, the opposing sides have more in common than they think: Ayshes husband has been missing since the war, and shes unable to tell Orhan the truth. Joshua hasnt seen his sons and seeks the truth about where they are and what happened to them. On a human level, the two sides want the same things. ANZAC Lt. Col. Hughes (Jai Courtney), whos in Gallipoli to properly mark ANZAC graves, and Turkish Major Hasan (Yilmaz Erdogan), who sympathizes with Joshuas cause, aid Joshuas search. As the story evolves, there are predictable twists, some surprises and dramatic peaks and valleys. This is not a poor first directorial effort for Mr. Crowe, but better p acing would have increased suspense leading up to the climax and avoided lulls throughout. At 110 minutes it feels about 10 minutes too long, and thats not a good sign considering the epic scale of the story. The Water Diviner is inspired by true events, but only loosely. Anastasios reportedly came across an old quote from the real Lt. Col Hughes regarding an old chap from Australia looking for his sons grave, and the idea for the story was born. Pretty much everything else is fiction, but thats not the point. What is important is that this is a sweeping historical drama that will no doubt play better Down Under than it will stateside. Its not bad. Its just slightly better than mediocre. >> The Water Diviner won three Australian Film Institute awards (the Australian Oscars): Supporting Actor (Yilmaz Erdogan), Costume Design (Tess Scho eld) and Best Film (tied with The Babadook). l b t l w w dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com

Hardcover, $26.95.This book is a pleasant change of pace after Doc Ford series titles dominated by words like deep, dead and dark. Yes, all those elements (with their neighbors named night, shadow and black) still lurk, but there is something brighter, softer and just plain funnier about Cuba Straits. Perhaps this is because Doc Fords sometimes sidekick and constant nuisance Tomlinson, a drug-expanded loony-tunes, is in full bloom here. Naively hilarious with his karmic insights and self-aggrandizing moral gestures, Tomlinson steals long stretches of the novel. Many characters author Randy Wayne White introduces for the first time are at once menacing and humorous. However, Doc Ford, the ballast that keeps this production in balance and afloat, is his winsome, stoic, complicated and courageous self. I almost forgot: This one is about baseball, 60 years of Cuban history, a weird cult, a Russian spy, powerful females, buried Harley-Davidson motorcycles and hidden love letters. The term strait is usually defined as a narrow passage between larger bodies of water, but I find no reference to Cuba Straits outside of the title of Mr. Whites book. It is surely meant to be a place name, but perhaps the other meaning of strait (or straits) is just as important to the novels focus: a position of difficulty, distress or need. That defines Cuba and the situation of its people pretty well. In the spirit of baseball and comic hijinks, lets play whos on first. Gen. Juan Simn Rivera? At a minor league baseball game in Fort Myers, Doc and Tomlinson run into Docs old acquaintance, the former dictator of a small Latin American country. Rivera smuggled shortstop Figueroa Casanova into the states, but now hes lost him and insists on Docs help in finding him. Whats missing along with Figgy is an old briefcase with a horde of letters from the brothers Castro. Some of these are love letters, while others have the potential of shedding light on the Cuban Revolution, the Bay of Pigs fiasco and the murder of John F. Kennedy. Figgy is quite an entrepreneur, with a thriving business smuggling Cuban ballplayers as well as baseball artifacts. Hes also quite a character. Though he is more or less functional, he clearly has a screw loose somewhere (in fact, he was an inmate in a mental institution for three years). He has no problem with committing murder to solve his problems. He sees the world in a way that is both frightening and wackily humorous. His grandmother had been the secret mistress of a Castro brother and the recipient of those valuable letters. A couple of monstrous characters stand in the way of Tomlinson and Doc, who individually and together are trying to figure out how to navigate the moral and political issues raised by the historical information in the letters as well as the ownership and value of the hidden antique motorcycles and other rarities. These are Vernon Quick, a Santeria shaman and pervert with a hunger for young girls, and Anatol Kostikof, a beast of a man who is Quicks Russian handler. The rituals of Santeria, an Afro-Caribbean religion with some connections to Roman Catholicism, add an especially spooky flavor to Cuba Straits, particularly as they are used and abused by Quick. Kostikof is a skillful agent, huge and shrewd, who doesnt let anything or anyone stand in his way. Finally, the three women in the Estban family, a mother and two daughters age 10 and 13, help our good guys thwart the evil that surrounds and threatens them. All of them. As ever, Mr. Whites prose is up to the task of painting colorful vistas (on Key West and around Havana), vivid action scenes and magnetic, detailed strategies of attack and defense. He develops his cast of characters, both familiar and new, with consummate skill. Near the end of the novel, the action is shoe-horned into and around an elaborate underground bomb shelter from the Cold War days. Here, the suspense rises to its highest pitch and surprises explode. Is there any truth to the legend that young Fidel Castro had been offered contracts to play major league baseball? Youll find out in Cuba Straits.

It has four legs and is upholstered on the seat and on both the front and back of the chair back and the arms. It is a chair type that still is being made. But there is another more glamorous gondola chair that is less-publicized. The antique Venetian gondola chair is carved and painted or upholstered in leather. It has a high back that curves down to the seat. The sides of the back continue forward to form arms that are attached to the seat by another curved support. It has four splayed legs that start at the seat and slant away from the chair. This type of chair was made in the 1800s and got its name from its shape. The chair looks a little like the front of an Italian gondola. It may even have been a seat for a gondola passenger. The Venetian gondola chair is rare and even the leather-covered ones are expensive. But a carved and painted example sells for thousands of dollars. Neal Auction in New Orleans sold one in 2014 for $1,917. Q: When I married in 1972, my mother gave me my grandmothers dishes. There are 10 plates and one large serving plate. The large plate has a hand-painted rabbit on it. Two of the dinner plates are painted with rabbits, two with deer, two with gazelles, and two with cows. The backs of the plates are marked LS & S, Limoges, France. Are they worth anything? A: This mark was used by Lazarus Straus & Sons, an importer and manufacturer in the United States. Lazarus Straus was born in Germany, immigrated to the United States in 1852, and began working as a pushcart peddler in Georgia. He opened a dry goods store there two years later. In 1869, he founded L. Straus & Sons in New York City. The company sold its china and glassware in Macys department store basement beginning in 1873. Members of the Straus family became part owners of Macys in 1884 and sole owners in 1896. You have most of a set of game plates made in Limoges, France, and imported by L. Straus & Sons. These usually came with twelve plates plus a larger serving platter and were popular during the 1880s. Sets of game plates sell for about $375. Q: I have a Dobro guitar that I got in 1956 when I was 10 years old. I think its a Rex Ampliphonic guitar or Dobro. I dont know much about this guitar but some Dobro players have told me its definitely an antique. A: Ampliphonic guitars, also known as self-amplifying or resonator guitars, were developed about 1927 by John Dopyera. He and his brothers founded Dobro Manufacturing Co. in 1928. In 1929, he was granted a patent for his design for
a guitar with a thin metal body and three aluminum diaphrams (resonators) to amplify the sound. Dobro guitars sold under several brand names in the 1930s. The Gibson Guitar Corporation has had sole rights to the Dobra name since 1993. Good quality old guitars sell for high prices. Find an expert at a shop that sells guitars or an auction house to find out what your guitar is worth. Q: Im interested in selling a Pachinko game machine, a four-reel nickel slot machine made by Wisconsin Novelty, and a Michigan Model 7 candy store cash register. Ive searched online but havent been able to find any information or an estimated value for them. Whats the best way to sell them? A: All of your items can be sold at an auction or antiques shop. You can check prices on our website, Kovels.com, or on auction websites. Look at a site like Liveauctioneers.com to see which auction houses have sold similar items and contact them to see if they are interested in what you have. Some wont take items below a certain value. Lower priced items can be sold to a dealer or antiques shop. Tip: A glass flower frog, a holder for the flower stems in an arrangement, can be useful. Look for the round glass holders with many holes. Each hole can hold a marble so a group of about 5 to 15 stems can be displayed in different sizes of flower frogs.

Poppy also returns as Carrie Wells, with Dylan Walsh back as Al Burns, in Unforgettable, which the A&E network saved from the fire after CBS canceled. Back in 2012, CBS canceled Unforgettable after the first season, but then decided to renew it for seasons two and three as a shorter summer series. It got the ax again this past October, and A&E scooped up the show in February and will air its 13-episode fourth season later this year. Q: I need some Devious Maids news!

CONTRACT BRIDGEDuck soupBY STEVE BECKERA shortage of entries to dummy is usually just as apparent to the defenders as it is to the declarer. When such a situation exists, the defenders should try to shape their play so as to take advantage of declarers limited communication with dummy. For example, consider this deal where South made three notrump, although proper defense would have defeated him. West led a club, and South won Easts ten with the king. Hearts was obviously the suit to attack, so declarer led a heart to the jack, East taking the queen. East returned a club, taken by declarer with the queen. South then forced out the ace of hearts and wound up making four notrump, scoring two spades, three hearts, two diamonds and three clubs. However, the contract would have been defeated had East allowed the jack of hearts to win at trick two! Presumably, declarer would next have taken a spade finesse. West would win and return a club. Regardless of how South proceeded from then on, he would finish a trick short, scoring just two spades, a heart, two diamonds and three clubs. The advantage of ducking the first heart is that declarer scores only one heart trick instead of three. This represents a difference of two tricks, or the difference between making eight tricks and 10. East should reason that if declarer has only two hearts a virtual certainty given Wests play of the three at trick two, indicating an odd number of hearts refusing to take the queen immediately will ultimately cut South off from dummy. He can see that dummy is critically short of entries and should defend accordingly. Usually, the holdup play is utilized by the declarer, but there are many cases and this is one of them where the defense can successfully adopt the same strategy.

Despite visits of varying frequency over the years, Ive only sampled their lunch menu a few times and I was glad to revisit it.I ordered the veggie crepes, which bridged the divide between my breakfast comfort zone and the adventurous spirit I was chasing by stopping in for a midday meal. When my crepes arrived, they elegantly enclosed a mix of sauted vegetables and were topped with a deliciously creamy citrus sauce. The portion was most generous (Ill admit that I only ate half), and now I am able to carry on with my stubborn view that Sunburst Caf is and will always be the best quick bite in Naples. One more thing: Sunburst has a deceptively simple menu and will often surprise diners with seemingly ordinary selections that pack a punch. For instance, all of their breakfast pastries are baked in house and are sinfully delicious. During this lunchtime stop, my companion and I ordered a serving of chicken tequila soup as a side. Rich with corn, chilies, chicken and lime, it was served in almost a tureen-like portion. After savoring several bites, we reminded ourselves that we had already eaten our real lunch and were forced to pull back before we hurt ourselves. Lindsey Nesmith firstname.lastname@example.org
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC34 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 23-29, 2015 VINOCatching UpIm often asked how we rate the wines that we discover and enjoy on our own, and the sample bottles sent to us by wineries or their public relations firms. Some of them make it into this column, and some dont. Contrary to popular belief, we dont just sit around and slurp the stuff, giggling and spilling. Theres a serious side to this, because I never recommend a wine, or serve one to my guests, that I wouldnt buy and drink myself. Consequently, we dont write up the wines that are not to our taste, or are not true to the type theyre supposed to represent. Youll never see a bad review in this column, because I dont see the point to it. I try to write only about wines that I believe well all enjoy. And I dont taste them alone. I call up one or two of my wine geek friends and say, Look, I have 15 bottles I need to sample, so why dont you come over? They never turn me down. As we swirl, sniff and sip, Im always surprised at the way everybody perceives flavors differently, just like no two people see exactly the same colors. So its useful to compare impressions with other enthusiasts who have somewhat educated and experienced palates. Then again, its not easy to critically sample 10 or 15 wines in a single sitting and remain critical and objective. We spit a lot. The wine world is a very big place, and I never lack for a topic for my columns or my classes. There are always new wines and winemakers, and emerging regions that were once obscure and are now producing international-quality wines. So every once in a while, its good to step back a bit, take the long view and catch up on all those bottles. Tasting notes have been stacking up for a while (this publication allows me only 750 words), so here are my latest recommendations. Byron Chardonnay 2013 Santa Barbara County A lovely bright straw color in the glass, with a pronounced nose of red apples and, in the background, hints of white flowers. Its medium-bodied, though the apple flavor recedes in favor of notes of lemon, lime and orange. Acidic and lean, more like a Sauvignon Blanc, it will go well with shellfish and any dishes that you might squeeze a lemon over. WW 88-89 points, around $16. Byron Pinot Noir 2013 Santa Barbara County Surprisingly light and transparent, it offers aromas of earth, smoke and mineral on the nose. The predominant flavors are of bright red fruits and strawberry with a long finish. WW 86 points, around $19. Guigal Condrieu 2012 This white wine is from Condrieu, the smallest winegrowing district in the Northern Rhne valley of France. The grape is Viognier, with a characteristic floral aroma of honeysuckle and other white flowers. On the palate youll get a big jolt of apricot, followed by lemon and peaches. The acidity and zippy minerality make it perfect with fish dishes. WW 95 points, around $50. Murphy-Goode Pinot Grigio California 2013 While not considered a serious wine, Pinot Grigio is a perfect summer sipper. This offering from Murphy Goode is one of the most enjoyable weve found. Its light-bodied, almost clear in the glass, with pronounced apple aromas. On the palate, theres a vibrant vein of acidity that supports white peach and pear flavors. WW 89, around $12.50. Priest Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon Somerston Estate Napa 2012 This is a big wine with a dark, inky purple color in the glass. Youll enjoy the aromas of blackberries and dark fruit, followed by a rich and extracted full-bodied mouthfeel. Theres plenty of fruit to support the 14.9 percent alcohol level. WW 93, around $40. jerry GREENFIELDvino@floridaweekly.com We bring in musics most engaging entertainers who are serious about their craft and passionate about entertaining you.BIG music: 239-598-3473www.agavenaples.comSouthwest corner of Airport & Vanderbilt Serious fun.

Southwest Florida food companies can. Your Pro Kitchen, owned by Kelly and Jasen Livingston, provides that warm embrace tiny food companies need to spread their wings and fly. As a commercial kitchen that provides a wide array of services to clients, Your Pro Kitchen has grown exponentially since its 2013 opening, alongside several of its clients. The journey started about five years ago when Mrs. Livingston owned Kelly Cakes, a bakery specializing in small-batch and custom cakes made in her home kitchen. As the business grew and she started looking for a bigger space, she found local restaurants wanted to charge her up to $50 an hour to use their kitchen during off hours. Because she was active in farmers markets and other retail operations, Mrs. Livingston knew more than a few culinary entrepreneurs who were in the same boat. The idea of starting a commercial kitchen was born. Since it opened on Rail Head Boulevard about 18 months ago, Your Pro Kitchen has increased the number of its clients from three to 30. It has been really neat, Mrs. Livingston says. We started off with three clients who waited three years with us to get started. Its not like anyone with a good cookie recipe can snag a spot at the franchise. Everyone has to become a licensed food manager and have the applicable certifications from state and federal authorities, a task that the kitchen often guides new owners through. Florida food preparation and sales laws are often restrictive enough to squash small food businesses as they start picking up speed, mostly in an effort to control food safety problems. Cottage foods laws apply to small-scale operations that operate out of home kitchens. They do not need to be inspected by the Florida Department of Agriculture or other regulatory authorities, but successful businesses often outgrow that umbrella and need to find cost-effective facilities to keep growth on track. According to the state of Florida, a cottage food operation cannot exceed $15,000 in annual sales, which feels unnecessarily restrictive to a professional with a good product and an entrepreneurial spirit. Factor in the prohibitive costs of starting a storefront operation (often in the $40,000 range) and lots of businesses can be lost in the jump from kitchen stovetop to commercial-grade Viking range. They are saving tens of thousands of dollars with us, Mrs. Livingston says about Your Pro Kitchens wide array of food startups that includes bakers to juicers, meal planners and caterers. Its a variety of different backgrounds and different foods, she adds. There are a lot of different stories and they all network together, too. Zan DeCiccio, who with Sebastian Mancera owns a juicing operation called Juicelation, says Your Pro Kitchen relieved a lot of pressure off their operation. (The kitchen) helps with everything, Ms. DeCiccio says. Now that their juices have followings in a number of local retail locations, such as Shangri-La Springs, Bikram Yoga, Love Yoga and Neighborhood Organics, she and Mr. Mancera are branching out into raw foods. They would eventually like their own space, she says but were happy for now. One operation that is about to fly the coop is Creative Fit Meals, having outgrown Your Pro Kitchen which is the whole point and is now preparing about 2,000 healthy meals a week for clients. The kitchens services have been instrumental in the companys growth, helping it expand to the point where the owners have had to increase staff from the original three employees to eight. Its truly a good thing, Creative Fit Meals owner Martin Pecoraro says. It provided the opportunity to grow our business and put me in a position where the growth pattern is just crazy. The company has recently procured its own space on Bonita Beach Road near Docs Beach House. Clients of Your Pro Kitchen can access the building 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can schedule equipment use so there are no conflicts with other clients. They also have access to business services, marketing assistance, communal office space for meetings and tastings and a discounted hourly rate when they start clocking in more than 60 hours a month. For more information about Your Pro Kitchen, call 287-3441 or email email@example.com. Ashley Stritenbergers company, Stuffum Naturals, makes paleo gluten-free cookie dough and baked goods at Your Pro Kitchen and sells them at stuffumnaturals.com. Sylvia Rudd, owner of Sylvias Toffee, was Your Pro Kitchens first licensed business. Her treats can be found at Wynns Market in Naples. Kelly Livingston opened Your Pro Kitchen in 2013 with her husband, Jasen. Lily Leverant of Creative Fit Foods packages vegetable kabobs to be delivered to clients including Jabz Gym and Round the Clock Fitness. Rolando Rizzo of Creative Fit Foods readies sweet potatoes for the companys healthy prepared meals. VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLY
