www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 21-27, 2015 Bring Your Highest Expectations LIVINGSTON ROADPINE RIDGE ROAD EXIT 107WHIPPORWILL LANE N COMMENTARY TravestyIn eight years of column writing, Ive never used the word travesty not once. Im proud of that fact. The word has been employed so frequently that often it rings with a tone of useless hysteria. But now let me aim the word as an accusation at some people who were born with good brains and functioning bodies into comfortable families and who obtained stellar positions in American society as a result. Let me aim the word at people who now run government agencies regulating the transplant of hearts, lungs, kidneys, the pancreas, intestines and other organs into the living and dying, out of the newly dead and willing. Theyre not doing their jobs, and thats killing other people. Heres the problem, revealed in a ground-breaking and comprehensive story last week by a Florida Weekly investigative journalist, Athena Ponushis: Less than 1 percent of those who agree to be organ donors ever get to help others live on after their own deaths. Heres the reason. Officials at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and three or four other agencies are committing a travesty: Theyre lying about why less than 1 percent of the newly dead can help the organ-needy ill carry on. Thats what the word travesty means: a falsehood. A lie. And its not just government officials, who blame the problem on doctors, claiming they ultimately get to choose which organs and how many they use. No. Some doctors working in hospitals and hospital emergency rooms are also committing a travesty they too are lying about why they watch more than 6,000 patients die each year simply because the organ they needed wasnt available, when in fact it probably was available, but remained ignored by too-comfortable professionals and bureaucrats. The doctors blame it on the bureaucrats. As it stands, if you dont die in a hospital with all systems working meaning if you are brain dead before your body is plugged into the machines that keep organs working doctors wont recover them. Why? Because if a transplant fails, the government agencies might shut them down. Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and its division heads, refuse to let the prescribed success rate for transplants drop below 95 percent. Add to that, this problem: There is no official encouragement to emergency workers to get people newly dead into a hospital. As a result, if youre dead at the scene youll get left on a gurney until the crew cleans up, then transported directly to the morgue and nobody is thinking about the kid or the young parent in desperate need of a kidney or a heart or a lung, who will die without it. As a result, Ms. Ponushis reports, out of 70,892 people who died in Florida last year, only 572 became organ donors. And in 2,576 traffic fatalities, only 118 became organ donors. Who are the bureaucrats creating this mess? Sylvia Mathews Burwell is the director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in charge of the whole system. Her annual salary, paid by organ donors and other taxpayers, is about $200,000 a year. A West Virginian and the daughter of a doctor, she used to be president of the Walmart Foundation, and before that of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Mary Wakefield, director of the Health Resources and Services Administration within the Department of Health and Human Services, is a nurse with a Ph.D. and a salary in the six figures, like Bob Walsh, who heads the Division of Transplantation. There are a few other salaries worth mentioning, too, because they suggest that the people who are sometimes letting other people die by their complacent acceptance of the status quo are living comfortably as they do it: For example, critical care and emergency doctors make about $271,000 to $281,000 a year on the average. Cardiologists come in at more than $351,000, with urologists averaging about $348,000 a year, according to Medscape.com. Most of these people, in my experience, are aggressively compassionate. But some are not doing their jobs. It comes down to this: Those in need of organs, along with the newly dead and willing donors, have been robustly ignored by government bureaucrats and complacent doctors. Organ donors are volunteers to the cause of life in the purest American and Western sense based on the moral assumption that every single sentient human has a profound value that cant be measured in any quantifiable way, and all of us are obligated to help each other. You may be one of those volunteers. So am I. And so are 125 other million Americans 50 percent of all U.S. citizens age 16 or older. Weve agreed together that when we die, our organs should be used to save and enrich the lives of others. For most of us volunteers, it says so on our drivers licenses. Thats because when they come to take our organs, we probably wont be around to confirm our willingness and discuss politics, religion, the baseball season, our investment strategies or the weather with them. And were fine with that. We think about it like this, dont we? My mother and father made me to do some good in the world. And if the last thing I can do is contribute this heart, this lung, this kidney or anything else to a person who will die without it, then lets get it on.So the question now becomes, what are you bureaucrats going to do about it? t l h f w roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Under the headline The Price of Nice Nails, the story cataloged the abusive treatment of workers in New York Citys ubiquitous nail salons. The story generated an enormous reaction; it highlighted the poignant juxtaposition of affluent women enjoying what once would have been a luxury, thanks to poor, exploited women with no other options. It is a tableau that doesnt feel very American or very modern. We thought we had put the age of sweatshops behind us, but we hadnt. It turns out that sweatshops are where New York City women go to get their mani-pedis. The Times story is, in part, about the ugly underbelly of immigration. The salons are what an industry that subsists on substantial illegal labor looks like. Census Bureau numbers say that 59 percent of personal-appearance workers are foreign-born, according to Steven Camarota of the Center for Immigration Studies. By his estimate, about a quarter of those foreign workers are illegal, and judging by the Times report, the number is higher in New York City. Almost all of the workers interviewed by The Times, the report noted, had limited English; many are in the country illegally. The combination leaves them vulnerable. Manicurists usually pay a fee of $100 or $200 to begin working at a salon, and then work without pay for weeks or months, before finally getting wages of perhaps less than $3 an hour, supplemented by tips. Thats assuming that the workers are allowed to keep all of the wages or the tips. Their stories are heart-wrenching, if drearily predictable. These are women who often dont know the language, dont have any social support, have very few skills in an economy that increasingly demands them, and have little ability to complain about their working conditions, or anything else. What does anyone think is going to happen to them? When politicians discuss immigration, it is usually in high-flying terms. Jeb Bush says that immigrants create an engine of economic prosperity. Politicians always talk of importing the best and the brightest from abroad. But New York Citys salons capture the tawdry reality of illegal immigration. There is an economic upside to this dispensation. In this case, and in many others, illegal immigration is a subsidy for the upper-middle class that can enjoy cheaper services than it would if the country had a strictly legal labor market and lower levels of overall immigration. No one wants to hear it, though. When Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker suggested that the effect on wages of American workers should be the first concern in considering levels of immigration, the political class recoiled in horror. Surely, one reason that salons can pay so poorly is that the supply of illegal workers is so plentiful. And this supply of labor must, at least at the margins, crowd out workers already here who might consider working in salons if pay and conditions were better.The New York Times exposed the price of nice nails and of cheap labor.

OPINION p e v g a a rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly KPFT Houston, 45 years after domestic terrorist bombings, plays on Pacifica Station Bombed Off Air, read the Houston Chronicles banner headline on May 13, 1970. KPFT, Houstons fledgling community radio station, had been on the air for just two months when its transmitter was blown to smithereens. An explosion which demolished the transmitter of Houston station KPFT-FM (Pacifica Radio) was no accident and apparently the work of experts, authorities said today, George Rosenblatt of the Chronicle wrote. The blast occurred at 11 p.m. Tuesday. The station was playing Alices Restaurant and at the precise moment of the explosion, Arlo Guthrie was singing, Kill, kill, kill as he spoofed the draft. The attack on KPFT was no spoof. Someone had placed dynamite and destroyed the transmitter. The KPFT staff and volunteers rebuilt the transmitter, and got the station back on the air this time with a concrete-reinforced transmitter shack. But by October, this time with 15 sticks of dynamite instead of just one, the anonymous attackers again destroyed the transmitter. KPFT remains, to this day, thankfully, the only radio station in U.S. history to have been blown up. Recovery from the second, more serious blast took longer. When the station went back on the air in January 1971, Arlo Guthrie was there in Houston, picking up where he left off, finishing his famous song Alices Restaurant in person. KPFT had been blown up twice, but the bombers did something for KPFT that, with no marketing budget, it couldnt have done on its own: The station was blasted into the consciousness of the potential listening audience in Houston. An investigation after the bombings led to the conviction of Jimmy Dale Hutto, the Grand Dragon of the local Ku Klux Klan. Hutto said blowing up KPFT was his proudest act. When you consider the Pacifica Radio network and its rich history, it is no surprise that a hate group like the KKK would target it. Pacifica Radio provides a forum for people to speak for themselves, breaking down stereotypes and caricatures that fuel hate. Pacifica Radio was founded by Lew Hill, a pacifist who refused to fight in World War II. When he came out of a detention camp after the war, he said the United States needed a media outlet that wasnt run by corporations that profit from war, but instead run by journalists and artists or as the late George Gerbner, former dean of the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylv ania, said, not run by corporations with nothing to tell and everything to sell that are raising our children today. KPFA, the first Pacifica station, began in Berkeley, Calif., on April 15, 1949. Pacifica Radio tried something no one thought would work: building a network based on the voluntary financial support of individual listeners, a model later adopted by all of public radio and television. The Pacifica network grew to five stations: KPFA in Berkeley, KPFK in Los Angeles, WBAI in New York, WPFW in Washington and KPFT in Houston. The Pacifica network broke important stories and never shied away from controversy, especially when covering social movements. Luminaries from the civil rights movement, like Paul Robeson and Harry Belafonte, were regularly heard on the airwaves. African-American writer James Baldwin was broadcast debating Malcolm X on the value of nonviolent sitins. WBAI in New York City sent reporter Chris Koch to North Vietnam in 1965 as the first U.S.-based reporter to cover the war from the North. Musicians like Bob Dylan and Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead got their first over-the-air broadcasts on Pacifica stations. Forty-five years after the bombings, KPFT continues to broadcast in Houston, serving the public as a beacon of alternative perspectives and a hub of local news and culture. Some say the bombings werent aggressively investigated because of the close relationship between the local KKK and the Houston police. Today, we are facing a crisis of racial profiling and police targeting communities of color with seeming impunity. While there has been a significant spike in hate-group activity since Barack Obama was elected president, more significant and enduring change haFive years before the first bombing of KPFT, on Feb. 26, 1965, Martin Luther King Jr. spoke at the Temple Israel of Hollywood in California, saying, The arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice. He went on, We shall overcome because William Cullen Bryant is right: Truth crushed to earth will rise again. KPFT, Pacificas radio station in Houston, was crushed to earth, twice in 1970. But it rose again and again, and has been using the public airwaves to help bend that arc of the moral universe toward justice, for 45 years. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

She and her husband Aaron own of Acadia Wealth Management, and she serves on the board of Gulfshore Playhouse. Tennille grew up in Norristown, Pa., about 20 miles northwest of Philadelphia. Her father owned a direct-mail/ marketing business, and her mother spent most of her time chauffeuring Tennille and her older sister to assorted extra-curricular activities. Tennille juggled dance, piano and tennis lessons until age 11, when she decided to focus on ballet. At 14, she was accepted into the esteemed School of American Ballet, the official school of the New York City Ballet. Her high school education became a combination of classes at Professional Childrens School in Manhattan and certain courses on correspondence, meaning she was responsible for learning the material, handing in assignments and taking tests on set deadlines but only meeting with a teacher once a week. This collegeprep approach allowed her to complete four years of high school in three years while taking advanced classes at SAB. She danced on-stage with a few major ballet companies before stress fractures on both of her shins took her away from dancing for several months. At age 18, she moved on to other forms of dance and continued her college education while working as a livein nanny with a family on the Upper West Side. She graduated from Fordham University with a double major in media studies and theater. During her last year at Fordham, she was also working fulltime in the marketing department at EMI/Capital Records. A few years later she joined the ad agency DDB Worldwide Communications Group Inc., in account management and eventually moved to corporate public relations for the firm. After meeting Aaron, she moved back to Philadelphia, married him and landed a position at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. In 2003 the couple moved to the Paradise Coast. Tennille worked for the Philharmonic Center for the Arts (now Artis Naples) for two years before she and Aaron founded Acadia Wealth Management. As executive vice president and COO, she manages the administrative and operational side of the business, while he handles financial planning and investment management with clients. Each summer they take a road trip (up to about 10,000 miles of driving) to visit clients across the country. For Tennille, the transition from the world of performing arts and entertainment to financial services wasnt easy and it certainly was not a natural progression. Although she was living the dream of owning a business with her husband, there was still a void in her life. Her need for a theater fix a handson, gritty, real, tear-out-your-heart theater fix led to her to Gulfshore Playhouse as a volunteer and eventually a board member. She also enjoys traveling, kickboxing, interior design, golf, volunteering for other charitable organizations (including PAWS Assistance Dogs, which Aaron serves as a board member) and, she says, every now and then I get crafty with a glue gun. Bob Harden is the producer and host of The Bob Harden Show, airing from 7-8 a.m. weekdays at bobharden.com.

State Road 29: FeldaTURNING ON TO STATE ROAD 29 NORTH, the sun went behind a cloud and I passed a field of palm trees with their trunks scorched black from a fire. Felda is a one-stoplight town just over the Hendry County line. A Shell station is across from a billboard where a huge Bud Light bottle glistens. On another corner, an old blue aluminum building that used to house a grocery store and diner is closed down, the parking lot filled with weeds, the unofficial Felda Museum of Rusted-Out Cooking Equipment in the grass, love bugs drifting over it. Just up SR-29 off Church Road, I wandered a peaceful cemetery at Mount Zion Primitive Baptist Church (established 1925). A LITTLE FARTHER UP SR-29, A BILLBOARD announced swamp buggy rides and ,000 acres of pristine Florida wildlife. Down a long driveway is a small house with Roberts Farms printed on the front door. An older, sun-weathered man with long, dark hair and tired eyes appeared on the porch smoking a cigarette. He did not want his name printed, but explained the sad, compelling history of the property as he sees it: 4,000 acres is whats left of a once thriving cattle operation with more than 100,000 acres, he said. Black wasps floated harmlessly over the porch as we talked. The swamp buggy business, his sons, stalled and for now is not in operation. Inheritance taxes on the land may force him to sell the remaining 4,000 acres. He produced a framed 1987 newspaper article about it and the areas other major cattle operations. His great-grandfather was Robert Roberts, he said, one of the first Collier County commissioners. His greatgrandmother used to make him PB&J sandwiches with a glass of milk and tell him stories on the front porch of a house in Immokalee, like the time her husband shot a dark shape out of a pine tree with a shotgun. When he rolled the dead animal over, He said, damn honey, that thing looks like folks. The old Mr. Roberts had shot someones escaped monkey. He is satisfyingly profane and irreverent about historical figures from Barack Obama to Thomas Edison, wielding the f-word with aplomb: My grandfather remembers seeing (beep) Henry Ford waiting for (beep) Thomas Edison at the (toot toot) train station so he could give him a ride in a (beep beep) Model A, he said.

In the pines I spot two deer, one a fawn, skittish and alert. Some of the recreational dirt and gravel roads in the park are drivable, although may soon be flooded out by the summer rains, a ranger said. Down one there is an alligator pond and campsite. Another, Old Mill Road, rolled on for about four miles. A sparkling sunlit afternoon shower fell over the forest along the empty road, not disturbing an ugly black vulture standing on the side and dead ended at a citrus field.

At the deli, I devoured an enormously satisfying meal of homemade fried chicken, beans with huge chunks of pork, roasted jalapenos peppers and corn tortillas (cheap).

I drove on to downtown LaBelle to see the blonde brick Hendry County Courthouse (National Register of Historic Places) and admire the huge old oaks dripping with Spanish moss.

The center of town is simply a four-way stop, where a man on a riding lawnmower was kicking up luminescent clouds of dust into the tops of tall oaks, the sun low in the sky shooting rays through their gnarled limbs. At the stop sign, I took State Road 731 west to Old State Road 8 headed north. Old State Road 8: Lake PlacidNORTH ON OLD STATE ROAD 8 (COUNTY Road 17): a retro Beef, Its Whats for Dinner billboard. There are series of hills on this curvy backroad to Lake Placid where Ive heard kids used to drive to catch air. It crosses State Road 70, opening into a scenic view of the lake and citrus groves. Jutting up over U.S. 27 near downtown is the old and phallic Lake Placid Tower, also known as Happiness Tower. It was, well, erected, in 1961. More than 270-feet tall (27 stories), the concrete monument was envisioned as a tourism magnet where for $3 folks could ride up the elevator and gaze upon the countryside. It appeared long abandoned, in a half empty strip mall with a defunct restaurant at its base. And yet red lights still blinked from up on the tower and an open door led into the restaurant where the evening light haunted the busted windows and dusty booths where people once ate, and the elevator, covered in crude graffiti (Hell is here, someone wrote) sat dormant. Next to it, the door to the stairwell was open and lit. Eight flights of echoing metal stairs wound up through the tower ending at an open air observation deck: the blaze of the setting sun dropping over cars crawling along U.S. 27, a Publix, fields and lakes beyond. Efforts to restore the tower to fire code are long stalled and it is currently owned by CHL Tower Group, according to the Highland County property appraiser, which operates it as a cell phone tower. Driving through downtown at night, everything was closed. A return trip is warranted to see the collection of circus art and clown memorabilia at Tobys American Clown Museum & School, which is open noon to 4 p.m. in the summer.

Outside one house sat 89-year-old Joseph Mitchell, a World War II veteran born and raised in Greenville, Ala., swatting at gnats with a hand towel. He talked slowly, stories winding along the backroads of his memory until he punctuated many of them with, thats no joke. I dont think about dying: I know, the Bible says sure as youre born you must die. Its no joke, he will say. Or, God didnt just bless the black man, he blessed the white man and all the other colors. That aint no joke. There is no bitterness in his stories even though many of them describe racism. His father, a Cherokee Indian, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for shooting and killing a white man, even though the jury ruled him innocent because it was in self defense, he recalled. Some of his stories include white men calling him nigger derisively. Asked if it still happens, he mentions a conversation he had many years ago with his doctor. He said, well, nigger is nothin but a name. You dont have to be black to be a nigger. You dont have to be a human to be a nigger. I dont care about people callin me nigger, he said. Mr. Mitchell has four children, all in their 60s and living in Florida. His wife passed away in 2003. He is content to live alone: saved money all his life, worked as a tractor-trailer driver delivering loads of cane, paid off his house, cares for himself, tends to his yard. OFF US-27 (EAST SUGARLAND HIGHWAY) IN Clewiston, Dixie Fried Chicken cooks up a wealth of southern-fried goodness. Local frog legs are enticing, but best of all are the whole fried catfish fresh from Lake Okeechobee, their mild flavor improved by a generous dousing of Crystal hot sauce. An order of catfish and eggs with b uttery g rits ($9.99) and piping hot fried green tomatoes ($6.49) is best topped off with a slice of coconut cream pie ($4) and a nap. Anita Griffin runs Dixie with her grandson, Coby Griffin and his girlfriend, Chelsea Vanskiver. Shes an Elvis Presley fan and the walls are covered with memorabilia. She saw him perform in concert twice, young in Miami in the 1950s when he got his first pink Cadillac and middle aged in Los Vegas in the 1970s. Raised in Nashville, Ga., where her parents were farmers, she ran a grocery store when Coke was a nickel, and later worked for a chain diner in Miami, before moving to Clewiston where her sister lived and purchasing Dixie Chicken in 1994. Although in the years to come her sister, as well as her only son, passed away, and her house burned down, she persisted as independent as ever single since 1959 and enjoyed every minute of it. At 79, she works every day from about 8 a.m. until 10 p.m., except for July 4, Thanksgiving and Christmas. DOWN THE STREET, I STOPPED IN THE BAR of the Clewiston Inn (National Register of Historic Places) and had a Budweiser ($3) with Gregory Roberson. Originally built for sugar executives, the Inn resembles a plantation house, and the bar, tended by a young woman with long black hair, looks nearly identical to a picture of it in the 1950s. Mr. Roberson, who is 51, was in town with a company that is cleaning a boiler at the sugar plant, one big enough that it requires eight flights of stairs to reach the top. One of his favorite backroads is Old U.S. 41 where it cuts across the Everglades. A backroad for me is where you normally wouldnt go, he said. Where the mainstream public wouldnt go. Its somewhere like Clewiston where you can go and nobodys here. Its where half the town is closed up. Its where its peaceful. The backroad today is what you make of it. Its like a lot of the little small towns. Its not advertised. You have to actually Google it to find out theres a town in that area. Its where you can go and kick your feet up and have a beer without a bunch of shit. County Road 720: Uncle JoesTIME TO FIND A PLACE TO SLEEP. UNCLEJoes Fish Camp is off County Road 720 (narrow with no shoulder) which connects Clewiston to Moore Haven, passing from Hendry to Glades County as it cuts in an upside down L shape through cane fields. Uncle Joes Camp is off CR-720 about 4 miles down Griffin Road, where it dead ends at Lake Okeechobees levee. Eddie Massey and his wife have run the collection of small duplex cabins and RV trailers (daily, weekly and monthly rates) for 30 years, although the original Joe started it in 1948. It used to be frequented mostly by serious fishermen and hunters, but in the last decade, with a paved path built along the dike around the lake, bicyclists and hikers have been attracted as well. A room with a stove and a refrigerator ($65 out of season) was comfortable and clean. From up on the levee, a huge hazy setting sun looked underwater. Car headlights crawled through the fields. I VENTURED OUT TO FIND FOOD ABOUT9 P.M., BUT A TIKI bar in Clewiston that offers an enticing gator tail dish had already closed. Along a darkened street there was only one lit sign for Brendas Place. It might have been a rough, dank hole but instead a Duval Street sign from Key West over the bar, a feedbackdrenched Neil Young moaning rock and roll will never die and good beer were welcome relief. A 16-ounze can of crisp Imperial with a lime wedge was on special ($2) and a group of young and old danced to an eclectic jukebox. The bartender, who had a stylish beard, chuckled when asked if it was the only bar in town (that was open). It was. Next stop: Wendys. County Road 720: Moore HavenAT 6 A.M. AT UNCLE JOES STORE, COFFEEwas brewing and a sweet, gentle Doberman pinscher sat by the front door. Lady Red is the camp dog after her owner died here three years ago, cracking his head in a bicycle accident, Mr. Massey said. On CR-720 into Moore Haven, the cane fields were filled with darting redwinged blackbirds feeding in the already humid morning. Scrambled eggs and corned beef hash, toast, hashbrowns and coffee came to less than $6 (cash only) at The Moore Haven Restaurant, a squat whitewashed cement structure guarded by a tiny, angry Chihuahua, populated mostly by the elderly, and open only for breakfast in the summer. On the way out of town, I browsed Mi Casa Thrift Store where Martin Gurza was sweeping the floor. He lives in Miami and commutes here three days a week. His impact glass installation business has afforded him the opportunity to run the store as more of a hobby, he said, as long as it doesnt lose money. Mi Casa is open Wednesdays and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday noon to 3 p.m. There is an extensive used furniture collection and I snagged a paperback copy of The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde (75 cents). Driving through the streets of Moore Haven, there were a lot of empty, abandoned buildings, like those in many towns along this route, that offer a certain kind of fascination; ruins porn is a term that grew out of the recession and applies here, each one a testament to a past when the lights were on and the rooms inhabited by people. State Road 80: Belle Glade A FEW MILES OUTSIDE CLEWISTON ON U.S. 27, Old U.S. 27 parallels it for a bumpy one-lane trip by cornfields and cane fields and into Palm Beach County. It becomes paved with two divided lanes again as it curves down through Lake Harbor, another small community that time forgot, and connects back with new 27 as it dips down and connects with State Road 80 (Cross State Highway) by the South Bay Correctional Facility. SR-80 curves 90 degrees north into Belle Glade, where a shirtless man in a motorized wheelchair inexplicably rode along the shoulder into a 93-degree day, prisoners working by the side of the road. On SR-80 at Gator Boulevard, an uncontrolled, unlit takeoff and landing strip is also called Belle Glade State Municipal Airport. A pilot named Joe Don Burton, a crop duster or aerial applicator, was getting ready to take off. BACKROADSFrom page 9 EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYSharon Colvin and her husband Bobby run a 5-acre farm in Pahokee off Bacom Point Road that produces 18 varieties of mango plus other tropical fruits and vegetables. Chickens at the Colvin farm are driven into a feeding frenzy by papaya fruit. EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Lake Placid Tower stands 270 feet above U.S. Highway 27. The former tourist attraction, also known as Happiness Tower, stopped offering elevator rides to the top long ago and is now used as a cell phone tower. Heres a look from the stairwell near the top.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 21-27, 2015 NEWS A11 He flies a handsome yellow Air Tractor 502, which costs about $900,000, holds 500 gallons of gas and has a turbine engine. It may be loaded with insecticide, herbicide, nutrients or whatever an entomologist determines is needed for a given crop. He treats sugar cane most of all, and sweet corn. Mr. Burton has been flying for 34 years, part of that time on corporate jets. In the late afternoon he starts the propeller, climbs aboard, and roars off in the opposite direction of storm clouds. State Road 715: PahokeeI TAKE STATE ROAD 715 (NW 16TH STREET) north to Pahokee on Lake Okeechobee. Off 715 (Bacom Point Road), Bobby and Sharon Colvin live on a five-acre farm. A roadside sign advertises mangos, papaya, and other fruits and vegetables they grow. The Colvins regularly attend Pahokee city council meetings, and are in favor of a plan by a developer to pour millions into renovating the city marina and park off North Lake Avenue that they say local officials have waffled on and now may not happen. It could turn this town around, said Ms. Colvin, who will be 69 in August. Mr. Colvin tends the trees, his only employees being a flock of free-range chickens that help keep the groves clean eating bug and weeds. Ms. Colvin does the sales. Hed be willing to sell the whole place for $800,000, but isnt counting on that. Realistically, I suspect well be here til Jesus comes and I dont think thatll be too long, said Mr. Colvin, who is 69. Were both planning to go up in the rapture when it happens, and prepare other people for it. They also hold a Bible study group every Wednesday morning, the topic being Bible prophecy and end-time events. Mr. Colvin gives me a papaya for the road and also one to feed to the chickens, who are driven into a piranha-like feeding frenzy, tearing it apart in seconds. AT THE MARINA AND PARK OFF NORTH LAKEAvenue, Pahokee Moes Tiki Bar and Sunset Grill has a wall of windows filled with a view of the lake, a giant wildlife mural, and an excellent Mahi Mahi Rueben ($10.95) on buttery toast ed rye with a salad. The waitress preferred not to have her name in print, but said she told her unofficial, backroads history instead. She is from Alaska, part Aleutian Indian and part Eskimo and yes, she knows how to build an igloo. At 47, shes going to school for architecture and engineering, with at least three years left to go, and is one of an extraordinary if nearly impossible 24 siblings from the same mother. When I raised my eyebrows at this, she explained about Alaskas long, dark winters, cooped up inside with nothing to do. Her family lives on Alaskas west coast. They drove her crazy and she didnt know half of them, so she packed two suitcases and her service dog (she has a heart condition) and headed as far away from home as she could get in a car. After lunch, out on the pier, only a few old boats in the marina, five people were fishing. Its nothing to do, nowhere to go but fishin and church, a woman said. U.S. 98: Port Mayaca LocksU.S. 441/98 (EAST MAIN STREET) from Pahokee Moes hugs the lake up through Canal Point to Port Mayaca in Martin County, where the locks is known as one of the lakes most beautiful vantage points. Just over a bridge on the north side of the locks, you can drive up and park on top of the levee. A bright expanse of lake stretches out like an ocean. I took US-98 around the lake and home on State Road 78, making one last detour between Moore Haven and LaBelle at Ortona Cemetery, noted by a roadside sign to be where the Seminole Tribes Billie Bowlegs III (1862-1965) is buried. According the Library of Congress website, he was a tribal historian of Seminole and African American descent who educated the public about the tribe. I drove along the cemetery paths searching for his grave until it started to grow EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYCrop duster Joe Don Burton gets ready for takeoff at Belle Glade State Municipal Airport. Now and then. Including J. Clinton Shephards iconic mural, not much has changed at the Clewiston Inns bar room today compared to a photo of it from the 1950s that you can see hanging outside the door in the hallway.

NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATEIs this a great country or what?Theres hardly a more generic song in America than Happy Birthday to You, but to this day (until a judge renders a decision in a pending case), Warner/Chappel Music is still trying to make big dollars off of the 16-word ditty (15 original words plus a user-supplied 16th). Its original copyright should have expired, at the latest, in 1921, but amendments to the law and technicalities in interpretation (e.g., did the copyright cover all public uses or just piano arrangements?) bring Warner at least $2 million a year in fees. A federal judge in California is expected to rule soon on whether the song is in fact uncopyrightably generic 125 years after the Hill sisters (Mildred and Patty) composed it. Ironies The ancient art of yoga is supposed to offer a path to inner peace, wrote The Wall Street Journal in February before launching into a report on how many yoga classes these days are so crowded that inner peace-seekers are more likely than ever either to seethe throughout their session or to openly confront floor-hoggers. Explained one coach, People who are practicing yoga want Zen; they dont already have it. Timely Information: (1) Joseph Forren, 21, with a .172 blood alcohol level, plowed into a pickup truck in April in Trumbull, Conn., (though with no serious injuries). Police said Forrens cellphone on the seat still displayed a current text message, Dont drink and drive ... Dad. (2) According to police records released in April, Mila Dago (now 24 and awaiting trial for DUI manslaughter) was trading sarcastic texts with her ex-boyfriend that night in August 2013 while barhopping (later, registering .178 blood alcohol), and as she ran a red light, smashed into a pickup truck, injuring herself badly and her friend in the passenger seat fatally. According to the police report, her last text to the ex-boyfriend (three minutes earlier) was Driving drunk woo ... Ill be dead thanks to you. Readers Choice: (1) The Indian Journal of Dermatology announced in April that it was withdrawing a recent scientific paper by a dentist in Kerala state, Development of a Guideline to Approach Plagiarism in Indian Scenarios, because parts of the article had been plagiarized from a student dissertation. (2) Low voter turnout in non-presidential election years is increasingly problematic in easily distracted Los Angeles, but the issue was specifically addressed by campaigners in the March 3 city council elections which, of course, only about 9 percent of registered voters cast ballots in. Suspicions confirmed In New York City, someone can be fired for being too nice. Doorman Ralph Body, 41, was dismissed from his job at an upscale New York City apartment building because he did too many favors for tenants, according to an April New York Post report. Body said he gave his life to the residents at the on 27th tower in Queens, but upper management thought such extra kindnesses violated building policy and ordered his dismissal despite a tenant petition. When the chief auditor for Hartford, Conn., finally got around to checking the finances of the police shooting range recently, he found that the range supervisor had bought 485,000 bullets per year, but was using only 180,000 and had no paperwork on where the other bullets went. (In one instance, the supervisor acknowledged having bought 94,500 rounds of .45-caliber ammo two years after the department had stopped using .45s and switched to .40-caliber weapons but his story was that he needed .45-caliber bullets so he could trade them for .40s.) New world orderMillions of sports fans draft their own fantasy sports teams and even the bass-fishing tournament circuit has its fantasy league, where fans select anglers good at exploiting choice spots on the lakes. In March, Alaska Dispatch News reported that, for the fourth straight year, there would be an Iditarod Fantasy League, with a salary cap of $27,000 to pick seven mushers with the best chances to push their dogs to victory, with all-stars going for around $6,000 and promising rookies selling for much less. Compelling explanationsAlfred Guercio, 54, was arrested in Burnsville, Minn., in March after forcibly entering a neighbors home and swiping a knife set that he had given the woman as a Christmas gift. He told the woman, and police, that he was taking the gift back, as he was upset that the woman was failing to appreciate it enough. Fine points of the lawJohn Deere became the most recent company in America to claim that, though a buyer may have paid in full for a device, he may not actually own it. Deere claims that because its tractors run on sophisticated computer programs, the ostensible owner of the tractor cannot tamper with that software without Deeres permission even to repair a defect or to customize its operation. Already, traditional movie videos may come with restrictions on copying, but the Deere case, according to an April report on Wired.com, might extend the principle to machinery not traditionally subject to copyright law.

Teeth and Skin Perfection Books for Collier Kids: new name, same missionBooks for Collier Kids is the new name of First Book-Collier County, the nonprofit organization entering its second decade of providing brand new books throughout the school year to more than 7,000 children in pre-K, kindergarten, first and second grades in Collier County schools. We are changing our name to more accurately and powerfully communicate what we do: give a steady supply of wonderful books to Collier County children, explains Joanne Wyss, chair of the organization. Nothing else is changing. We will continue to provide books to children in need and work closely with teachers, administrators and other nonprofits in our community, she adds. Books for Collier Kids provides more than 75,000 books each year, including a summer program for select nonprofits serving disadvantaged children. The organization partners with more than a dozen area nonprofits to put books into the hands of needy children.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA20 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 21-27, 2015 Research: Depression increases risk of strokePersistent depression might may double the risk of stroke in adults over 50 and stroke risk remains higher even after symptoms of depression go away, according to research reported in the latest Journal of the American Heart Association. Our findings suggest that depression may increase stroke risk over the long term, says Paola Gilsanz, study lead author and Yerby Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard Universitys T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston. Researchers used data from 16,178 participants ages 50-plus who were interviewed every two years between 1998-2010 as part of a health and retirement study about depressive symptoms, history of stroke and stroke risk factors. The study documented 1,192 strokes over 12 years. Among the findings: People with high depressive symptoms at two consecutive interviews were more than twice as likely to have a first stroke than people who did not have any depressive symptoms. People who had depressive symptoms at the first interview but not the second had a 66 percent higher stroke risk. Researchers did not evaluate whether depressive symptoms diminished because of treatment or for other reasons; but findings suggest that treatment, even if effective for depression, might not have immediate benefits for stroke risk. Researchers also suggest that diminished depression may have a stronger effect on women than men. However, recent onset of depression was not associated with higher stroke risk. Looking at how changes in depressive symptoms over time may be associated with strokes allowed us to see if the risk of stroke increases after elevated depressive symptoms start or if risk goes away when depressive symptoms do, Ms. Gilsanz says. We were surprised that changes in depressive symptoms seem to take more than two years to protect against or elevate stroke risk. Previous research has shown that depression is associated with an increased risk of high blood pressure, abnormalities of the autonomic nervous system and increased inflammatory responses. Depression might trigger underlying vascular problems, including infection or atrial fibrillation, and depressed people are also more likely to smoke and be less physically active. Although we now know that depression strongly predicts stroke on par with many other major stroke risk factors, we still need research to understand exactly why this link occurs and whether we can potentially reduce stroke risk by treating depression, says Maria Glymour, study senior author and an associate professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine. The National Institutes of Health, Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute for Child Health and Human Development and the American Heart Association funded the study. Act F.A.S.T. at signs of strokeThe American Heart Association and American Stroke Association are raising awareness about American Stroke Month in an effort to prevent some of the more than 137,000 deaths annually from stroke. Stroke is the No. 5 cause of death and the leading cause of adult disability in the United States. A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain either ruptures or is blocked by a clot. When part of the brain cannot get the blood and oxygen it needs, brain cells die causing the portion of the body affected to not function as it should. Available for free download, the Spot a Stroke F.A.S.T. app ensures individuals have immediate access to 911 and also provides helpful resources and a video with a short overview of the following warning signs of a stroke: F: Face drooping Is one side of the persons face drooping or numb? When he or she smiles, is the smile uneven? A: Arm weakness Is the person experiencing weakness or numbness in one arm? Have the person raise both arms. Does one of the arms drift downward? S: Speech difficulty Is the persons speech suddenly slurred or hard to understand? Is he or she unable to speak? Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Can he or she repeat it back? T: Time to call 9-1-1 If any of these symptoms are present, dial 9-1-1 immediately. Check the time so you can report when the symptoms began. Additional signs of stroke include: Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes. Sudden difficulty walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination. Sudden severe headache with no known cause. Anyone experiencing some or all of these symptoms should seek immediate medical attention, even if the symptoms go away. Timing is crucial; there are treatments for stroke that can be considered within 4 hours of the onset of symptoms. For more information about American Stroke Month, call the AHA office in Bonita Springs at 495-4900 or visit strokeassociation.org.

Wildfire smoke can cause respiratory woesThe Florida Department of Health in Collier County cautions citizens that wildfire smoke is a respiratory irritant that can cause a scratchy throat or irritated eyes and nose. Smoke can also worsen conditions such as asthma and other chronic respiratory or lung conditions. Here are some tips on how to protect your family from smoke: Pay attention to news coverage or health warnings related to the wildfires and the associated smoke, including local air quality reports, which can be found at collierprepares.org. Scroll to the bottom of the page under local and national resources, and view Collier County air quality readings. Use common sense when outside conditions are smoky. Avoid prolonged outdoor activities. It is especially important to limit time spent outdoors for children and persons with existing medical conditions. Stay indoors and keep your air conditioners fresh air intake closed and the filter clean to prevent bringing additional smoke inside. If you do not have an air conditioner, staying inside with the windows closed may be dangerous in extremely hot weather. In these cases, seek alternative shelter with family or friends. People who live in areas that are regularly affected by smoke from wildfires would be well advised to create a clean room in their home to reduce the irritants of wildfire smoke. A good choice is an interior room with as few windows and doors as possible. Follow your doctors advice about taking medicines and following your asthma management plan if you have asthma or other lung disease. Call your doctor if your symptoms worsen. When driving in smoke or fog, decrease your speed, increase your following distance and use your low beams. For more information, contact the Department of Health in Collier County at 252-8049 or visit collierprepares.org. ZONEFrom page 20

If you live in an area where venomous snakes are common or frequently take your dog hiking in such areas, you may want to look for a class that will teach your dog to avoid the scaly slitherins. The training can also teach dogs to avoid toxic amphibians, such as the Colorado river toad and cane toads. Its especially useful for active, inquisitive dogs, or those with a high prey drive, but any dog can benefit if theres a chance he will come face-to-face with a rattlesnake, copperhead or water moccasin. Jackie Brown of San Clemente, California, often saw rattlesnakes while hiking with her dog, but it wasnt until she saw a nonvenomous snake in her yard that she realized Jager, a miniature poodle, could encounter snakes anywhere. I worried about what he would do if he came across a rattlesnake, she says. Would he try to play with it? Chase it? Corner it in the yard? I didnt want to leave it to chance, so I decided to look into snake-aversion training, which I had read about in a dog magazine. Dogs learn to avoid snakes once they smell, hear or see one. The training, accomplished with the aid of an electronic collar, helps them to keep a safe distance. It takes only a few minutes to teach a dog that snakes are better left alone.The session usually involves exposing the dog to the sound of a rattlesnakes rattle, snakeskins and live snakes mouths banded closed in different environments, such as sun or shade. If the dog approaches the snake, the trainer activates the electronic collar to simulate a snakebite. Collars are set on low enough to create a negative association, but not enough to cause pain or distress. (Be sure to try it on your own skin first to make sure its working correctly before its placed on your dog.) Some sessions have a final test with a hidden snake. The class should be repeated every year or two to reinforce the lesson. Depending on where you live, sessions are not always easy to find. Ask your veterinarian for a recommendation, or look for fliers at your local pet supply store or animal shelter. Hunters and other outdoorspeople are usually familiar with snake training. Ask to observe a session first, and choose an experienced trainer who uses the collar carefully and makes sure the dogs feel comfortable and safe. Excellent timing and the ability to observe changes in the dogs behavior are critical. It is a specialized field, and I would not trust my dogs in the hands of a rookie, says dog trainer Connie Kelly of Carlsbad, Calif., who has had her Australian shepherds snake-trained. Watch how the handler treats the snakes as well. You want someone who handles them kindly and respectfully and always makes sure they are safe. People who dont understand the process may consider it cruel or abusive. Thats a mistake, says Eric Christensen of Oro Valley, Ariz., whose English springer spaniels and flat-coated retrievers have all undergone snake-aversion training. It is neither (cruel nor abusive) if done correctly, and is, in fact, a potentially life-saving gift. Jager? A few months after training, he and Ms. Brown came across a dead rattlesnake on one of their walks. As soon as he smelled it, Jager jumped back about three feet, Ms. Brown reports. It made me feel better knowing that he would try to get away if he came across a live one, she says.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 21-27, 2015 NEWS A23 THE DIVA DIARIESSocial media puts the pressure on to be picture-perfectIts wedding season, and honestly, Ive never seen matrimonial ceremonies more competitive than they are these days. Not only that, I think Ive found the culprit: social media. There was a time, before 2006 (when Facebook became available for everyone, not just college students), when a girl had herself a lovely wedding and, eight weeks or so later, received the professional photographers photos from the blessed event. Shed choose her favorites and put them in a pretty white album that sat on the coffee table for friends and family who popped in to browse at their leisure. That tradition is quaint, dear. And because of Facebook and Instagram, its pretty much over. Wedding photos these days are posted in real time by smartphone-savvy guests who shoot and upload images for all to see before the couple is even pronounced man and wife. A girlfriends son is getting married, and she and her husband are hosting the rehearsal dinner, which is turning out to nearly as elaborate as the wedding itself. And, indeed, Ive seen some rehearsal dinner photos on Facebook showing open bars, flowing champagne, color themes and live bands. They look like awfully hard acts to follow. Another girlfriend is getting married this summer and shes barely eaten a carbohydrate since her fiance proposed a year ago. Shes also doing Cross Fit and running; you could bounce a quarter off her abs. I get it: Its not just the 75 guests, all friends and family, who will see her walk down the aisle in her form-fitting strapless gown. Once her social mediahappy cousin starts tagging the bride in photo after photo, everyone will see including her old boyfriend and his old girlfriend from high school. Talk about pressure. Add to all this countless photos of fancy food, incredibly creative centerpieces, amazing wedding favors and a lineup of more than a dozen bridesmaids (not including flower girls). And keep in mind that Facebook is far-reaching. In fact, those of us who are perhaps, say, sitting in the waiting room at the doctors office might find ourselves, at first, looking at the cute cat video you posted, which somehow leads us to your most recent Throwback Thursday photo and, because were bored, we click on someone else in the photo who turns out to be your sister-in-law whose stepdaughters best friend just got married in Maui last month and all the bridesmaids wore coconut bras paired with different colored grass skirts for the wedding which we learn thanks to all the pictures posted by the aforementioned stepdaughter. Of course, I was never intended to see those 324 wedding photos (and had my doctor not been running behind, I never would have). The point is that with so much social media exposure, women have to live in fear that one of their best friends is going to get married, choose a Hawaiian theme and ask them to be a bridesmaid in a coconut bra because she saw it on your sister-in-laws Facebook page. And the one-upping doesnt stop with weddings. There are the destination birthday parties, kids going to prom in limo busses and baby showers that look more like spring fashion shows with signature cocktails rather than the kind we had where we sat around eating potato salad in our muumuus and sharing grueling birth stories. A perfect example of hard-to-live-up-to Internet perfection would be Kate Middleton recently posing for the paparazzi outside the maternity wing at the hospital with newborn Princess Charlotte mere hours after giving birth to the 8-pound, 3-ounce royal bundle of joy without an epidural. There she was, in a customdesigned spring shift, fresh make-up, perfectly blown-out Breck girl hair and HIGH HEELS. And thats because Her Royal Highness is no fool. She knew that not only would that photo be immortalized in newspapers and magazines all over the world, it would be splashed all over our smartphones, where we would zoom in to scrutinize everything, including her ankles to determine if they were swollen. They werent, which led some to speculate that it was all a plot and that Kate had given birth to Charlotte days before. She hadnt, of course but she did have a team to take care of her, including a stylist, a make-up artist and a royal ankle-unsweller (OK, I made that last one up). Either way, I wouldnt be surprised if, as a result, salons started offering postnatal hospital visits before the official Facebook photos are taken. The competition, conscious or subconscious, is real, and its right there on our newsfeeds to make us feel envious, inspired or inferior whether its the future Queen of England or an old rival from middle school. As for me, I just remind myself that, typically, folks only share the sparkle. At that ultra-expensive wedding, the maid of honors coconut bra probably fell off when she was dancing on a table to Beyonces Single Ladies, but (mercifully) thats not going to make it on your newsfeed. And Im certain that after that two-minute photo op outside the hospital, they brought Kate Middleton back inside where they promptly put her hair in a clip, wiped off all the make-up and dressed her in the most comfy muumuu ever.

B8-9 For any who have studied the outside view of Southwest Florida from an airplanes window seat in the last couple of years, two things might become immediately apparent: one, the economy is once again robust; and two, the evidence for that assumption can be as simple as a landscape below speckled with swimming pools. In Lee and Collier counties alone, for example, more than 120,000 pools now exist on the domestic side, and about 4,000 commercial pools. Thousands of pools are tucked into the neighborhoods and communities of Charlotte County as well. That means the pool business is booming not only in the construction of new pools, but in the maintenance or repair of old ones, say those in the business. We build and renovate pools, but we also clean more than 1,500 a month, says Rich Hudec, general manager of Jackson Custom Pools, with offices in Naples, Estero, Bonita Springs and Fort Myers. And like anything else, those who had the newest technology in the last couple of years, may not now. At Nautilus Pools in Port Charlotte, for example, where owners Pete and Beth Coccaro just won five awards in an annual design contest sponsored by the Florida Swimming Pool Association, a trade group with about 600 members in 16 state chapters, an online advertisement suggests as much.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF MAY 21-27, 2015 MONEY & INVESTINGGas prices based on the markets guessesI was waiting in line at my local coffee establishment yesterday when I overheard the gentleman in front of me expressing in a very colorful manner his anger that the price of gasoline was starting to rise again. Fortunately, he paused his tirade long enough to order his Venti Mocha Frappuccino before moving on his way Incidentally, a gallon of gas = $3.65. A gallon of Frappuccino = $30. But I guess it must be really difficult to produce a cup of coffee compared to extracting hydrocarbons from thousands of feet under the ground, refining the oil to an exact chemical composition, piping it across the country, and then taxing it at more than 15 percent. Nevertheless, my line-mate did bring up a salient question: why does the price of gas move, sometimes dramatically, over a short period of time? The main driver of gasoline prices is the price of its primary component crude oil. So what affects the price of crude oil? I know in my ECON101 class, my professor spent an entire semester drawing commodity supply and demand curves and proving that the intersection sets the price so maybe sizable changes in oil supply and demand will explain volatile gas prices. The demand side of the oil equation is actually quite stable and relatively easy to predict. If you set your thermostat at 76 degrees yesterday, you are probably going to set it at 76 tomorrow. Over the longer term, such factors as energy efficiencies, economic growth, energy tax rates and costs of alternative energy sources will all shift oil demand, sometimes dramatically. But these factors take years to develop and do not move oil prices week to week or month to month. So if oil demand is stable in the near term, it must be that significant moves in oil supply is the culprit behind gas price swings. Actually, oil supply in the short run is just as stable as oil demand. Engineers have gotten really good at knowing exactly how much oil a rig will produce each day. And getting a well online is not like flipping on a light switch. Again, in the long-run, oil supply can shift due to new oil finds, new technology like fracking, or geo-political events, but those events are years in the making. So if supply and demand of oil doesnt affect pricing on a short-term basis, what does? The answer can be found in this set of eye-opening facts: First, the world produces around 93 million barrels of crude oil each day. Second, the financial markets trade more than 1 billion barrels of crude oil financial contracts during that same 24 hours. What are these financial contracts? Basically, they allow a person or company to make or lose money based on the price movement of oil in the future. Speculation and hedging the future price of oil has completely overshadowed the actual physical buying of selling of crude oil itself. So knowing that oil futures contracts dominate crude oil trading, it then becomes easy to figure out just what moves oil prices. It is the expectation of supply and demand shifts. Like almost all financial assets, investors and analysts buy something not based on the past or present, but the future. They also buy it because they think they know something that is not priced into the current market. So if an oil minister in Saudi Arabia makes a comment that his country is considering cutting oil production, you can immediately see a spike in oil prices that day, even though the supply of oil will not change for months or years. It is a direct result of traders adjusting their pricing of futures contracts, which shifts the entire oil pricing curve, even todays prices. This concept is not very intuitive. Why should gas prices today move based on something that may or not happen in the future? Think of it this way What if I told you that you could trade me the $1 bill in your pocket for $2 tomorrow? Wouldnt that $1 be worth more than a dollar today? Its the same thing with oil. If the price of oil is expected to be much higher in the future, the price of the commodity is actually worth more today. So once again we can see how Wall Street really affects all facets of our daily life, even the price of gas. And if you want to complain about the price of gas rising another 10 cents, thats fine. Just put it in perspective while sipping a $375/ gallon glass of wine at your local steak house.

Naples/Bonita Springs Visit online at www.FloridaWeekly.comJob-hunting? Take time for a commercial break SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYIf youre a job seeker, you can bet youll run into the request: Tell me about yourself. And you can also bet your interviewer isnt looking for an answer like: Well, Im a Pisces, I like to read sci-fi novels and I have a pet rabbit named Sesame. (If only it were that easy, right?) The truth is, many people struggle to give interviewers an accurate, targeted portrait of themselves as job candidates. If youre one of them, Peter Studner is here to turn your rambling, unfocused answer into an articulate pitch that will leave interviewers wanting to know more about how you can help their company. Think of your answer as a 90-second commercial that presents the essence of what makes you a unique, experienced, engaging businessperson, the author of Super Job Search IV: The Complete Manual for Job Seekers & Career Changers says, adding, You need to write and practice performing this commercial with as much enthusiasm as you can muster while still seeming natural. In Super Job Search IV, Mr. Studner, whose outplacement firm has helped more than 27,000 people transition from one job to the next, guides readers through the complicated process of conducting a successful job search campaign. The book contains a detailed section about preparing for and navigating interviews, and it also includes online resources and an app. Here, Mr. Studner shares an outline for developing your 90-second commercial: 1. Start with a brief introduction. State your name and thank the person for his or her time. 2. My background is ... List your degrees or certificates and the schools you attended. Avoid mentioning dates, unless you are asked. 3. I specialize in ... Briefly describe your area of expertise and/or any particular skills you have. At this point, it wouldnt hurt to mention a good accomplishment. For example, During my last job, I was instrumental in bringing in three new clients with first-year sales of $6.7 million. 4. Ive worked at ... Share your most pertinent jobs, not a list of every position youve ever had. Remember, the interviewer has a copy of your rsum. (And just in case he or she doesnt, make sure you bring a copy to the interview.) Again, you might put in another brief accomplishment to support your expertise. We reformed our sales team, and I recruited three new associates. We exceeded our sales goals by 43 percent. 5. I was responsible for ... Again, dont recite a laundry list of all the responsibilities you held in your previous job. Share the most prominent and pertinent. 6. Im especially proud of ... List one or two additional major accomplishments, including the benefits they brought to your employer(s). Dont fall in the trap of getting into the details of how you achieved each accomplishment. (If you are asked how you did it, you know youve hit pay dirt, as the interviewer might have an identical problem that you already know how to solve.) 7. Im excited to be here because ... The interviewer obviously knows youre at the meeting because youre looking for a job this is an opportunity to make it a bit more personal. Using wellresearched details, you might mention the companys reputation, products, management, technology, international scope, etc., and how these things fit with your skills and aspirations. If you are currently unemployed, this might also be a good place to share a plausible reason for leaving your last position. 8. Close, but keep the conversation flowing. Turn the questions back to the interviewer with, So I can better relate to you, could you please tell me a little about your (company, department)? Mr. Studner stresses that some of the components of your commercial might change from interview to interview. Before each meeting, he says, think about which of your skills would best fit with this particular company and this particular job. Consider what problems the company might have and how you can solve them. Then tweak your pitch to reflect your conclusions. And what if you have a long, detailed work history that doesnt fully fit into this template? Mr. Studner urges you to remember that 90 seconds is a long time to listen to someones monologue. You can always provide more information later in the interview and if you craft your commercial well, interviewers will ask to hear more. Once youve developed your commercial, record yourself reciting it, speaking slowly enough that someone hearing it for the first time will be able to understand and process what youre saying, he concludes. Edit, impr ove, and record again and again until you can deliver your commercial with the same ease with which you would tell a favorite anecdote. Rest assured, your effort will be worth it. Your 90-second commercial will stand head and shoulders above the multitude of um-s, uh-s and well, let me see-s your interviewer has doubtless heard.
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF MAY 21-27, 2015 your pool and spa functions even if you are out to dinner, it says. Which means that you could fly to Paris and clean or vacuum your pool from a table at Le Meurice on the Rue de Rivoli while dining on crispy green ravioli with a fricassee of snails and wild garlic as a starter, followed by spitroasted red-wine marinated pigeon with red cabbage and apple juice. Among the designs at which the Coccaros excel are infinity and vanishingedge pools. As they tell customers, if you can dream it, we can design it. These pools appear to join either seascape or skyscape in a seamless line of color and liquid that suggests infinity an allusion created by a system that maintains a water level on the pools edge by providing light spillage into a trough below, from which water is recycled back into the pool. But in each in-ground pool, from the most elemental to the most sophisticated, quality workmanship is job number one. We treat every pool as if it was in our own backyard, the Coccaros say. Mr. Coccaro works every job, and among the companys 20 employees are two supervisors who also manage every job 2,400 pools in the last 24 years, serving such communities as Venice and Englewood to the north, and Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda and Cape Coral to the south. In Florida nowadays, say the experts, the range of construction materials and the options that consumers may choose for in-ground pools are much more varied than once upon a time. Building a single pool, for example, also requires building the approaches and deck, the cleaning and pump system and usually a pool screen or cover and now to hurricane-ready standards, says Mr. Hudec. That means that the iconic images of hundreds or thousands of crumpled and twisted pool enclosures that scattered the landscape after Hurricane Charley rolled through in August of 2004 are not likely to be repeated. Coincidentally, the prices to build inground pools that existed then are not likely to be seen again, either. The way the economy has changed, people thinking about a pool should not expect to get one for $29,900 anymore the days of the 29-9 pool are gone, he notes. Since Jackson Custom Pools will spend weeks constructing a pool with the highest quality workmanship at every phase, consumers now should figure to spend in the $42,000 to $49,000 range, or more, Mr. Hudec says, depending on the design and materials. A word to the wise: The number one thing for the consumer is to get references. And then to check them. If youre going to spend $50,000 or $70,000 or $100,000, you owe it to yourself. Also, make sure the builder is licensed and insured you can do that at myfloridalicense.com. Everybody shops price, and the numbers are usually fairly close (between competitors). So make sure theyre using quality products, and hold your contractor to a timeline. In a quality pool, very little should have to be changed or redone for 15 or even 20 years, Mr. Hudec says. One aspect of the business that has changed everything for pool contractors is the Internet, he adds. Now with the Internet the consumer is much more sophisticated, and Im talking the 55to 65-year-old consumer. Ten years ago that wasnt the case. But this is good for us. I love an educated consumer who has read and can talk about the difference between materials glass tiles or ceramic tiles, for example. Pool construction in Florida, too, can have some challenges that it may not elsewhere. Here, a pool construction crew cannot simply dig a hole and use that as the outline of the pool structure, because the soil is mostly sand, Mr. Hudec explains. That means you have to have two feet on every side, then you put forms up and get forming material. Thats why you dont see vinyl pools in Florida because the way fiberglass sets up, and because of the humidity, its a concrete pool market. Weather is another challenge, and in summer time, when pool construction used to be slow (thats changed, the contractors say), crews will work early to mid-afternoon before the rains start. Pool construction from start to finish should probably take about six weeks. For those who arent interested in spending large sums for a pool, however, there are above-ground options. At Home Depot, for example, the company advertises a range of pools from the $700 Intex frame pool of 16 feet by 48 inches with a sand filter pump, to a $3,800 round Blue Wave Zanzibar, which stretches 30 feet, is 54 inches deep, has a metal pool railing on top, and includes pump and filter systems. In Florida, its all part of the Pooltopian water culture.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Splitting SharesMany investors get excited about stock splits, but splits arent as meaningful as they seem. For example, imagine shares of Buzzys Broccoli Beer (ticker: BRRRP), trading around $60 each. If you own 100 shares, theyre worth $6,000. Lets say Buzzys splits its stock 2-for-1. For each share that you own, youll get another, so you end up with 200 shares. You didnt get any richer, though, because while your share count increases, the value of each share decreases proportionately. After the split, the shares will trade around $30 each. The total value of your shares? Still $6,000. Splits can take many forms: 2-for-1, 3-for-2 and so on. One reason shares get split is to keep prices low enough for individual investors. If Apple had never executed its four stock splits, its shares would trade for more than $7,000 apiece instead of a recent $128.Microsoft, meanwhile, has undergone nine splits, turning one original share into 288 today. If there had been no splits, the stock, which recently traded at $49 per share, would be priced around $14,000 per share. Its rare for investors to be shut out of a stock because of a steep price, though. Even with a $400 stock, shallow-pocketed investors can just buy one or two shares.There are even reverse splits, which reduce the total number of shares while boosting the share price. But beware of reverse stock splits, because companies can use them to create a (false) sense of higher value and sometimes to avoid getting delisted from a stock exchange. Many well-known companies, such as American International Group, Citigroup and Priceline, have executed reverse splits, though its typically smaller companies that do so.While a split can make a stocks price more psychologically inviting and does technically make it cheaper, it doesnt make it a sudden bargain. A stock selling at more than $100 per share might seem expensive, but it can be a much better value than many $10 stocks. Stock prices only matter when you compare them to other numbers, such as earnings or revenue. A Bad SpreadMy dumbest investment taught me the value of investigation before buying shares of a company. My co-worker had been watching the meteoric rise of a penny stock. I got caught up in his enthusiasm, sold my shares of a perfectly good mutual fund, and placed a market order to buy 500 shares of the penny stock. The shares were purchased at a lofty price of $4.25, which the stock never saw again. It was recently trading for less than a dollar per share. This was a $2,000 crash course T.H., Merchantville, New JerseyThe Fool Responds: Ouch. Penny stocks are dangerous in many ways. They are often tied to companies without proven revenue and earnings, and theyre easily manipulated. Also, they can have wide spreads the difference between the latest price you can buy at (the ask) and the price you can sell for (the bid). If the spread is very wide, the stock will have to rise significantly just for you to be able to sell and break even. Penny stocks are almost always to be avoided. Its much better to stick with established and growing companies. Banking on Wells FargoTheres a lot to like about Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC), one of Americas largest banks. For example, consider its strong growth and returns for shareholders over the past few decades, and its market-leading mortgage and auto lending businesses. (Its stock has averaged annual returns of more than 17 percent over the past 30 years!)Instead of relying heavily on areas such as trading and investment banking, Wells Fargo focuses on community banking, via loaning money (through mortgages, auto loans, credit cards, etc.) and other relatively straightforward and low-risk operations such as insurance and retail brokerage. Thus, its revenue tends to be more stable than that of its peers.Wells Fargo has been on a mission to become its customers only bank as it cross-sells its products. Its average banking household has more than six separate products with the bank, and Wells Fargo is aiming for eight. Over the past year, Wells Fargo has increased the percentage of its customers with a Wells-issued credit card from 38 percent to nearly 42 percent.Wells Fargos management is focused on expense control, productivity and mitigating risk. Its highly profitable, and it cruised through the financial crisis arguably better than any other institution in the western world. It also offers investors a dividend that recently yielded 2.6 percent. Wells Fargos easy-to-understand services will always be in demand, and it deserves investment consideration. I was created for students at Harvard in 2004, and by the end of the year, a million people were using me. Today, based in Menlo Park, California, I boast almost 1.5 billion monthly active users and 936 million folks worldwide who use me daily and these numbers have been growing by double digits in recent years. More than 80 percent of my users are outside the U.S. and Canada, and I employ more than 10,000 people. I rake in more than $12 billion annually and own Instagram and WhatsApp, too. Who am I? (Answer: Facebook) Run, Rate, Run!QWhats a run rate? B.G., Slidell, LouisianaAIts a way to get a more realistic view of a companys performance. Imagine that Carrier Pigeon Communications (ticker: SQUAWK) is growing very rapidly. If you want to estimate its current annual level of sales, you could add up the last four quarters worth, but that would clearly understate sales, as each quarters numbers have been rising. So instead, take the most recent quarters sales of $30 million (up from $24 million the quarter before and $19 million before that). Multiply that by four, and youll have the companys current run rate for sales: $120 million. Its not a forecast or a measure of past sales; its a reflection of the current level of annual sales. ***QShould I pass on a company if its reporting increased losses per share instead of increased profits? J.L., Norton Shores, MichiganANot necessarily. Companies sometimes spend a lot more in one year than another. Imagine Home Surgery Kits, Inc. (ticker: OUCHH), a young company. Lets say it lost about $40 million in 2013 and $60 million in 2014, though its revenues nearly doubled during the same period. Some investors see numbers like this and run the other way, preferring to invest only in companies reporting steadily increasing profits. Thats reasonable. But those willing to take on more risk may still consider buying, if other factors are compelling. For example, if you have great faith in the future of home surgery kits, you might see the company needing to plow available money into advertising and growing the business. You might reason that the time for profits is later, once the company has amassed a huge customer base. Got a question for the Fool?

C8 Following the success of last summers Julius Caesar, Marco Island Academy High School and The Marco Players bring the Marco Island Shakespeare Festival back for the second year with Macbeth. Performances will be May 22-24 and 30-31 at The Marco Players Theatre. Last summer director Kaitlyn McRae travelled to the Globe Theatre, the Tower of London and Cawdor Castle in Inverness, Scotland, to conduct research for the show. Because it was written during the time when Catholic rebels attempted to attack the protestant English parliament, Ms. McRae sees the turbulent relationship of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth (played by Dylan Rogers and Jessica Lang) as a metaphor for the instability facing Britain during a period of political and religious reformation. Most important to the director and stars of the local production is that audiences perceive Macbeth and his wife not as evil, but as tragically human in the midst of chaotic circumstances. Macbeth would do anything for his wife, and shed do anything to make his power hers, Mr. Rogers says. They both just want to be loved. Julia Hajjar, Paige Babb and Ella Pflaumer, members of Dance Arts by Maria, perform as the tragedys iconic trio of Macbeth on Marco: The bard is backWEEGEESEE WEEGEE, C4 COMING FACE-TO-FACE WITH A WEEGEE PHOTOGRAPH IS AN unforgettable experience. And not just because he had a penchant for photographing the freshly murdered: corpses stuffed in trunks, sprawled out on the sidewalk, crumpled in car seats or dimly lit hallways. His work is populated with people from an earlier time the gritty New York City streets of the s, s and s from recent immigrants to socialites, criminals to policemen. Using his camera flash and whatever available light there was (street lights, store lights, headlights, etc.), Weegee carved art out of the stark black-and-white reality of New York City. He was a street photographer, a photojournalist, an artist. When an exhibit of his works opened recently at the Baker Museum at ArtisNaples, I knew instantly I wanted to view it with Florida Weekly photographer Vandy Major.BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com So a writer and a photographer walk into this museum, see PHOTOS BY WEEGEE (ARTHUR FELLIG) / INTERNATIONAL CENTER OF PHOTOGRAPHY/GETTY IMAGES).

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 21-27, 2015 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS Boyfriends versus lovers On a recent Saturday morning, I met my girlfriends for brunch downtown. Over eggs and bacon, we caught up on the latest gossip. Hows your lover? Susie asked. My lover? I mentally scanned the possibilities. Who was she talking about? You know, that one youve been seeing. Him? I said, laughing. Hes not my lover. Hes my boyfriend. Susie shrugged and tucked into her French toast. Whats the difference? Everything, I wanted to say. But I couldnt articulate it in the moment, so I spent the next week coming up with a list. Heres what I decided: Lovers are usually European. And older. I suppose its possible to have an American lover, but Ive never found one. Ive certainly never met a lover under age 40. It takes time, I believe, to learn how to appreciate a woman. Plus, a lover has to be financially stable enough to give nice gifts. Because lovers are always giving gifts. Frequently and at random intervals, deserved or not. You never know when a lover will send over a bottle of good champagne or a piece of expensive jewelry. Sometimes its a dozen roses in just the right color. Boyfriends give gifts twice a year: on your birthday and at Christmas. Lovers have very good taste. The gifts they select are elegant and sophisticated. They choose a perfume they know will suit you, a necklace or bracelet thats exactly your style. Boyfriends give you sex-shop lingerie that makes you look like an extra in a low-budget skin flick. What? they say. I thought youd like it. Lovers tell you youre beautiful. Boyfriends tell you about their day. Lovers make love. Theyre very good at it. They approach a womans body with something like worship, and when you say, Dont stop, they dont stop. Lovers can make love any time of day, but they prefer the late afternoon when the sun filters through the windows. Boyfriends, on the other hand, have sex. At night. With the lights off. Lovers take you on exotic vacations. Boyfriends crash at your house. And never make the bed. Of course, lovers are never truly available. Thats why they can invest so much generosity and passion in us. Their affairs come with a limited duration, and they know theyll never have to step in to do the emotional heavy lifting. Because when were sad, we call our boyfriends. When were sick, we call our boyfriends. When we need a hug or a back rub or general life advice, its not our lovers we turn to. Its the men in our lives from day to day, those imperfect creatures who know just the way to make us laugh. These are the men who are happy to see us first thing in the morning and last thing at night. For more than two days at a time. Which is really the most important difference between them: Boyfriends, if things go right, eventually become husbands. But lovers will never be more than that.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 21-27, 2015 The museum material says the exhibit is organized according to the time the photos were presumably taken, from dawn through the dead of night, and is an invitation to spend a day with Weegee. Vandy and I did just that last week.WEEGEEs namE WAS ALMOST SYNonymous with murder. Born Usher Fellig in what is now Ukraine, some say he was called Weegee (a phonetic spelling of the word Ouija, as in Ouija board) because it seemed as if he could mystically foretell where murders and accidents were going to take place. He made a name for himself by being first on the scene of a crime, sometimes even arriving before the authorities. And, although self-taught, he took the best photos. In 1938, he became the first civilian to obtain permission to install a New York City police radio in his car. He also turned the trunk of his Chevrolet into a makeshift darkroom; hed develop his photos right at the scene, type up the information and have them ready to sell to the citys various newspapers. Vandy is amazed by this. She tells me she became a photographer a dozen years ago and has never worked with anything but digital cameras. She didnt like chemistry in school, she explains, but she liked math, and digital photography uses math instead of chemistry. (On the other hand, my experimental high school in New York offered a wide variety of arts classes, and I loved working in the darkroom and seeing a photograph slowly emerge on the wet, white paper.) Weegees photographs of murders show dead bodies on piers, on rooftops, on sidewalks, in doorways, in restaurants, alongside cars. One shows the corpse of a man, feet toward the viewer, surrounded by a huddle of policemen in their long jackets. Weegee has cropped out their heads, or neglected to include them. The focus is on the body. Throughout the exhibit, the images are accompanied with comments and anecdotes from Weegee, sometimes telling the story behind the photo. There was at least one murder every night, the photographer wrote. In my ten years at police headquarters I must have covered 5,000. Some of the stories I covered still stick in my mind. Next to Murder in Hells Kitchen, Corpse With Revolver, body of Anthony Izzo, Killed by Off-Duty Policeman Eligio Sarro, February 2, 1942, we read: My camera seemed to be deadly as far as gangsters were concerned. Once I had photographed them alive I always had to pay a return trip to photograph them when whey were finally bumped off. They usually landed in the g utter, face up, in their black suits, shiny patent leather shoes with pearl gray hats dressed to kill. No bumping off was official until I arrived to take the last photo, and I tried to make their last photo a real work of art.JUST LIKE EVERY PERSON LIVING IN THE Naked City, every Weegee photo has a story behind it. With his photo of Patricia Ryan being arrested, Weegee wrote that earlier that day he went along on a raid of a dirty bookstore. He stuffed his camera cases and pockets with books and photos, as did the cops. After looking though the books for a couple hours, Michael Ryan, a policeman, went home to the Bronx, ate supper, then asked his wife if shed like to try re-creating one of the poses on a French postcard. She grabbed his gun and shot him, killing him. Weegee took a picture of her as she was being arrested.WEEgee PUBLISHED A BOOK OF HIS crime photographs called Murder is My Business. He also published one called Naked City in 1945 and a year later sold the rights and the concept of Naked City to Hollywood producer Mark Hellinger. It became a gritty, black-and-white movie filmed entirely on location in New York City in 1948. In 1958, a TV series by the same name premiered.THE firsT PHOTograph TO GRAB YOUR attention in Weegee by Weegee at the Baker Museum is an oversized image titled Heat Spell: Lower East Side, Children on the Fire Escape/Tenement Children on Fire Escape/Tenement Penthouse, May 23, 1941. Its also the image used on the cover of the museums brochure for the exhibit. It shows four children cuddled together, sleeping on a mattress on a fire escape. But look closer, and you see the young girl has a sleeping kitten tucked in her arm. And if you look some more, you notice the limbs on the bottom of the frame; there must be at least three or four more children sharing the fire escape. I remember my mother telling me stories about growing up in Hells Kitchen and how sometimes people would sleep on the fire escape to try to catch some cool breezes. (She also told me they would go to the movies just to get some air-conditioned air.) Vandy points out the blurred rung at the bottom of the frame and says the fact that its out of focus means it was closer to the photographer. We figure Weegee stood on the fire escape ladder above the children to capture the image. A note accompanying the photograph says Weegee would often leave $5 for the children to buy candy and go to the movies.ONE OF WEEGEES FAMOus photographs shows more than 1 million people on Coney Island on July 21, 1940, in Brooklyn. The frames so packed with people in bathing suits looking at the camera you can barely see a patch of sand. They wave to the camera or cover their forehead with an arm to block out the sun. People are lined up on the Boardwalk to the rear, and you can see the Astroland amusement park sign and the parks iconic wooden roller coaster, the Cyclone. The image makes me think of contemporary photographer Spencer Tunick, who, some 50 years later, is making a name for himself creating oversized photographs of groups of naked people in public spaces.ANOTHER Of Weegees iconic photographs, Opening Night at the Met Opera, is also in the exhibit. It shows two women of a certain age in furs, gowns and tiaras, their necks and arms dripping with jewelry, as they walk on the red carpet. To their right, a poor woman in a simple cloth coat and hat is yelling at them. We learn that Weegees assistant later revealed the photo was staged. The woman on the right, who the photographer knew from a bar in the Bowery, was brought uptown and, after buying her a few drinks, he had her stand next to where the opera patrons would be entering the Met for opening night. Vandy and I are disappointed by this and wonder what other photos he staged.WEEGEE BY WEEGEE IS A GREAT opportunity to see many of the photographers iconic photos in person and also to see them in the magazines and newspapers of his day. I wound up falling in love with two photos Id never seen before. Opening Night of the Metropolitan Opera, Jan. 27, 1942 shows four gentlemen in black top hats and topcoats from the rear. You can see the shine on their hats and the white of the back of their necks and collars, but no faces. Woman Cab Driver and Macys Clown, circa 1942 is a surrealistic shot of a taxi driver as she passes the fourfingered hand of a giant clown a helium balloon in the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade. Its like Gods hand reaching down from the skies in a white glove. The juxtaposition of the two is jarring, but then again, its just another slice of Weegees strange and wonderful world, captured forever on film and paper.

Kensington. 304 pages. Trade paperback, $9.95. Lovers of contemporary romance will find many satisfactions in Kate Angells latest addition to her Barefoot William series. The name is not that of a mythological beach bum, but a Gulf Coast beach town pretty much owned by the Cates family. Its time for spring training, and the Richmond Rogues major league team has made its new home in Barefoot William, much to the pleasure of team captain Rylan Cates, a hometown hero. Because Rylan has many leadership responsibilities during the eight-week spring training season, he advertises for a personal assistant. Beth Avery, a newcomer fighting a losing streak in her personal life, wins the job and much more. Beths job includes keeping Rylan on schedule, taking care of the house, preparing some meals and most importantly taking care of his four dogs. Atlas, the Great Dane, is way more than a handful. The author builds this stubborn but loving creature into a complex personality. Strange as it may seem, Atlas is the third most important character in the book. His tail-wagging cohorts are also memorable creations. Who are the other important characters? Clearly enough, the members of Rylans two extended families: his many tightly knit and mutually supportive Barefoot William relatives and his fellow Richmond Rogues. Ms. Angells readers have met many of them before. This time out, comic relief is provided by the nuisance behavior of Halo Todd and his sidekick Landon Kane, two of the teams star players. They hang around Rylans home uninvited, drop in for meals and generally impose upon their team captains good nature. Beths patience is strained by the goofy presumption of this duo. However, she does manage to involve them in preparing for a big party, even while risking the payback theyll expect. Halo and Landon are immaturity raised to a higher power. The heart of the story, of course, is the unwanted romance brewing and bubbling between Rylan and Beth. Their attraction to one another is powerful, yet neither is looking for intimacy or commitment. The timing just doesnt seem right. Ryland has to concentrate on his extensive responsibilities as team captain; Beth needs to get her feet on the ground in her new surroundings and find the strength to overcome recent disappointments. s c s c c a philJASONpkjason@comcast.net

Mutual respect and blazing sexual attraction are a powerful combination, yet each remains somewhat guarded as the fire builds. Where is this relationship going, besides the bedroom? Its a big question for both of them and for the reader. The author reveals great skill at stoking that fire and artfully describing the consequences. In the old days, we called such passages erotica. No One Like You is also a book about community. Rylans loving relationships with his grandfather Frank and his sister and brothers, as well as their spouses, are exemplary. Not only Rylan, but his sister Shaye and his sister-in-law Jillian are great examples of people anxious to help their community thrive. Bringing the spring training stadium facility to Barefoot William was a Cates family undertaking that is now nourishing the community in many ways. Beth, who was immediately befriended and even offered additional employment by the Cates women, is overwhelmed. This kind of respect, support and sincere friendship was not part of her lifes experience until now. This best-selling Naples author clearly knows what her readers want: a beautiful beach town, loving and lovable people, loving and lovable pets, a strong sense of community and civic virtue, confident self-knowledge, a balance of discipline and letting go. Baseball and the bedroom. Ms. Angell touches every base. Whats not to like?

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 21-27, 2015 ARTS COMMENTARY Florida Rep second annual PlayLab builds on successTheres nothing quite like the excitement of hearing the words of a brand new play. No costumes, no props, no set just the characters and their dialogue. You watch the actors as they perform, yet youre also in your head, too, imagining the scenery, the locales. Florida Repertory Theatres inaugural PlayLab play reading festival was so entertaining last year, I made sure to attend again this year. This time, they offered four readings as well as two full productions of plays that were presented as readings last year: Split in Three by Daryl Lisa Fazio on the main stage in the Arcade Theatre, and a commissioned childrens play, Journey to Oz by Christopher Parks, based on the L. Frank Baum novels, in the ArtStage Studio Theatre. Sometimes, play descriptions dont do the works justice. That was the case with the first play of the festival, Where I Dwell by Cynthia Babak. It was presented as a play about a family whose mother has a medical crisis and wants her family to be with her at Christmas, even though the father and son are estranged. That makes it sound a little like a Hallmark Special, but it was so much more than that. It opens with a man cursing loudly in a broad Boston accent. Hes in a car with his wife, and theyre stuck in a traffic jam. Hes impatient and irate, and his frustration is funny. And just like that, the playwright grabs us by the hand and draws us into the world of her play. And its a world that were very happy to dwell in. I knew Where I Dwell was a drama and hadnt expected Ms. Babaks sly and consistent humor. I also hadnt expected to care about the characters so much: the mother and father grappling with health, family and work issues, their estranged gay son trying to form a relationship, their college-aged daughter drifting through life and trying to find her way. Ms. Babak and this talented troupe of actors made me feel deeply about the characters, and I still cant get them out of my mind. Thats a gift, to create such fully realized people. In the talkback afterward, it was suggested Ms. Babaks play could be difficult to stage, as it takes place in a variety of locales. Others in the audience, myself included, thought it could be staged with a minimalist set, creative use of sound, and props that can be re-used as a variety of things. (After all, Florida Rep just put on a play in which people travelled around the globe via train, ship and elephant, and didnt seem to have any trouble staging that.) I was reminded of seeing the Elevator Repair Services production of The Select in New York, in which they staged the entirety of Hemingways The Sun Also Rises, including bullfights and fishing scenes. (Theyve also staged The Great Gatsby in full.) It was one of the most stunning and creative things Ive ever seen on a stage; it was almost as if they were reinventing theater. No one had told them they couldnt do it, and so they figured out a way in which they could. Joy Vey, one of the PlayLabs two comedies, was a disappointment. Written by Lojo Simon and Anita Yellin Simons, it follows the verbal sparring of two grandmothers who wind up babysitting their infant twin grandchildren on the same night. Both are surprised by the presence of the other, and the one-upmanship begins almost immediately. Sara Morsey played the non-Jewish, hippie-ish grandmother, and Carrie Lund the Jewish grandmother. The former is widowed, the latter has been divorced for five years. The play is somewhat predictable, as are, unfortunately, many of the jokes. There were moments when an unexpected line made me laugh, but it dragged in too many places. At times, it felt like being trapped by someone who wants to tell you all about their grandchildren in excruciating detail. As a friend of mine commented, Joy Vey is very commercial. And one of the playwrights who attended said it was intentionally written as a show for the holidays, as it takes place just before Christmas. (One grandmother is decorating for Christmas, the other for Hanukkah.) Two handers (plays with only two actors) can be more difficult to write because you only have those two people to play off of each other. You dont have other actors to change the dynamics or affect the action. (Though these two do get numerous calls on their cell phones.) I was surprised it was offered as a Florida Rep reading, as it doesnt match the quality of the fare the company typically offers. It was more something youd see a community theater or dinner theater produce. However, judging by the talkback at the reading I attended, others found the play to be very funny and enjoyed it. (I am willing to bet that most, if not all of them, are grandparents themselves.) But for me, the material did not surpass its specificity and reveal any universal truths. The Dingdong, a zany adaptation by Mark Shanahan of a classic Georges Feydeau French farce, follows the sexual exploits of three couples in 1930s Paris. Mr. Shanahan directed the Florida Rep productions of Hound of the Baskervilles and Around the World in 80 Days, and this adaptation is similar in tone: a quintet of actors playing a multitude of actors, absurdist humor and sexual innuendo. The farce incorporates quick costume changes as characters spin around and become someone else entirely. Unfortunately, this does not necessarily translate well in a reading, and without costumes, we were unable to appreciate the full richness of all this play has to offer. However, having seen the two productions Mr. Shanahan directed, and knowing what Florida Rep is capable of, I can envision them putting on a crazy production of this farce. Firestorm by Meridith Friedman closed the festival on the main stage in the Arcade Theatre. The story revolves around Patrick, a white gubernatorial candidate in Ohio who has an African-American wife, Gaby. The campaign is chugging along, when an incident from his past comes up. Back when he was in college, while pledging a fraternity, he did something racist. Now that prank from 20 years ago is surfacing. Not only does it negatively affect his campaign, but his marriage. And Patrick tries to deal with the fallout. The playwright doesnt try to wrap everything up with a pretty bow and explain it all for you; the endings left deliberately ambiguous, which makes it all the more powerful. It created some pretty interesting discussion afterward, including the observation by one gentleman that although the play deals with race and we were discussing racial matters, the entire audience was white. It was interesting to see this reading just a week after seeing Split in Three, which deals with forced integration of schools in Mississippi in the last segregated county during the Civil Rights Movement. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Elise Lorraine Miller in Where I Dwell.

You still want to go ahead with your plans, but you might see a better way to make them happen. So go for it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) An old business dispute could re-emerge and possibly affect upcoming negotiations. Consider opening up the situation to include suggestions from others on both sides of the issue. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Some Leos and Leonas might find it somewhat difficult to get their ideas accepted or even considered. But thats only for a while. Things will soon return to the way you like them. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) The pace seems to be slowing down from the hectic on-the-job run you recently enjoyed. But be assured that youre still in the race to pick up new workplace-related goodies. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Seasonal changes create opportunities for busy Librans. However, be sure to balance your workload with your personal life so that you dont overdo it on one end or the other.

Good news, Lamb: It could start to happen sooner than you think. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Changing things now could upset a lot of people.

However, the truth is that many so-called successful guesses are based on careful reasoning. Take this case where South is in six diamonds and West leads a spade. Declarer wins with dummys king and plays the queen of trumps, East following with the nine. South must now guess whether to finesse or play his ace in the hope that West has the singleton king. In the actual case, the contract stands or falls on this decision, since a subsequent club finesse will lose to East. The ace is the right play, but the fact that it catches Wests king is more than just a lucky guess. Declarer starts by assuming that East cannot have the K-10-9 of trumps, since with that holding East would cover the queen with the king to guarantee himself a trump trick. It follows that West must have either the singleton king, singleton ten or doubleton K-10. Declarer covers all three possibilities by playing the ace. If West has the K-10, South cannot control the o utcome w hether he plays the ace or the deuce, so this case can be dismissed. If West has the singleton king, the ace is obviously the winning play. But what if West holds the singleton ten? In that event, South still makes the contract by playing the ace. After West produces the ten, South cashes the A-Q of spades, discarding two hearts from dummy, and then the A-K of hearts.

Loud and exciting non-stop action, its rather artfully done by director George Miller. Rated R.Hot Pursuit 1/2(Reese Witherspoon, Sofia Vergara, Michael Mosley) A by-the-book cop (Ms. Witherspoon) has trouble escorting a drug lords wife (Ms. Vergara) from San Antonio to Dallas. There are the normal buddy comedy/road trip bits you expect, but Ms. Witherspoon and Ms. Vergara have enough chemistry to make it worth recommending. Rated PG-13.The D Train (Jack Black, James Marsden, Kathryn Hahn) Loser Dan (Mr. Black) recruits a former classmate-turned-actor named Oliver (Mr. Marsden) to attend their high school reunion, thinking getting Oliver there will make Dan cooler. Complications ensue. Its so unfunny its painful to sit through. When it was over I felt bad for the actors, talented as they are and undone by such horrid material. Rated R.Avengers: Age of Ultron (Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, James Spader) Tony Stark (Mr. Downey Jr.) hopes the world will be safe after he creates Ultron (voice of Mr. Spader), but it turns out Ultron wants to destroy the world instead. The Avengers to the rescue! Its an action-effects extravaganza that lacks the novelty of its predecessor but is nonetheless quite entertaining. Rated PG-13.Clouds of Sils Maria(Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart, Chloe Grace Moretz) A personal assistant (Ms. Stewart) helps a successful actress (Ms. Binoche) prepare for a challenging role. The acting is superb (especially Ms. Stewart, who continues to prove shes much better than anything the awful Twilight allowed her to be), and the story is dense with symbolism. Rated R.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 21-27, 2015 C15 LATEST FILMSGood Kill Is it worth $10? Yes!Is it OK to be cowardly if youre saving lives? The premise of Good Kill focuses on aerial drone attacks in the Middle East that are remotely flown from an air-conditioned trailer in Las Vegas. The benefits to U.S. military personnel are obvious: Pilots arent in danger, multiple points of view are provided and the enemy never knows when a strike is imminent. Drones arent going anywhere, Lt. Col. Jack Johns (Bruce Greenwood) says. In fact, theyre going everywhere. In front of an oversize American flag, hes addressing a roomful of eager soldiers. Writer/ director Andrew Niccol is clearly channeling the similar call to arms speech in Patton (1970), and that evocation alone is enough to remind us how much the art of war has changed since World War II. The fact that Johns later admits the technology was inspired by X-Box is not a surprise. Logically, this seems like a win for all involved except the targets. But whats difficult to assess is the psychological toll it takes, and how the murder of individuals 10,000 miles away who never see it coming in some way feels unjust. Unfair. Just plain wrong. Is it an act of cowardice to kill someone from so far away? The reality is the enemy wouldnt hesitate to kill if the American soldiers were in their presence, and its not the fault of the American soldiers that their technology is more evolved. Still, it can be a tough moral pill to swallow. For Tom Egan (Ethan Hawke), everything about remote controlling the destruction of human life is awful. He served six tours of duty in the Middle East as an F-16 pilot, and he yearns to get back up in the air. His PTSD is exacerbated by excessive drinking and orders he finds increasingly difficult to follow. Ordinarily soldiers long to be home with their families when deployed; Tom sees his wife (January Jones) and kids every night and couldnt be more miserable. But how do you make that switch? With just a short drive in between, Tom goes from killing supposed terrorists and whatever civilians are unlucky enough to be in the vicinity to trying to be a good dad to his wife and kids. Compartmentalization is one thing, but thats a tall order for anyone. Ironically, Tom has in a way become a terrorist. He carries out attacks that he knows will murder innocent civilians, and he does it because hes following orders. And, for what its worth, he also lives in a desert. His fellow soldiers (Zoe Kravitz, Jake Abel, Dylan Kenin) deal with the ethicality of their actions each in his own way. None of them are an asset to Tom, who believes the only way he can be happy again is to get back up in the air. Good Kill is different than the war movie were used to, and its fascinating because it feels feasible. Mr. Hawke gives his character just enough emotion to make it clear that hes getting torn apart from within this is a master class in restraint, and is impressively effective. But the movie overall is a bit dull. Mental anguish is a tough thing to convey on screen, and regardless of the stars best efforts, director Niccol doesnt always succeed in making it captivating. Still, its worth a look, if only because it presents a new side to the war on terror thats also undeniably current. >> This is the third time Ethan Hawke has worked with writer/director Andrew Niccol. They previously collaborated on Gattaca (1997) and the underrated Lord of War (2005). E b b h w dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com

Kovels Antiques and Collectibles Price Guide 2015 lists a late-1950s toy Radicon Robot that sold for $37,200, a very rare 1916 French doll that auctioned for $300,000, and a blue 1962 Chrysler Imperial friction toy with the box that sold for $26,550. And many more toys are listed that sold for hundreds and even thousands of dollars. What makes a toy that valuable? Barbie, Hot Wheels, stuffed Teddy bears and other popular toys are easy to find at yard sales for low prices, but the special ones exist today in small numbers. The first Barbie, 1959, in ex cellent condition is worth $6,000. A rare Steiff teddy bear even in much loved condition brings more than $1,000. Toys that move and make noise get good prices. In the 1930s and s, many colorful tin toys were made in the U.S. by Louis Marx. He founded his toy company in 1919, and by the 1950s, his company was the largest toy manufacturer in the world. Chances are there is a Marx toy in your family. Drummer Boy is a tin Marx toy made in about 1949. It is a tin man dressed in a yellow and orange band uniform, pushing a large drum balanced on a wheel. Wind it up and it rolls across the floor while pounding the drum. That toy sold recently for $370. It was inexpensive when new because Marx had reused some old toy parts and patterns. The company created a Charlie McCarthy toy in 1938, when the ventriloquist dummy was a star on the radio. The toys drum said Strike up the Band, Here comes Charlie. The head and lithographed designs on the tin drum were changed to make the new toy. Charlie, harder to find, sells for more than $2,000. Before you clean out your toys, take the time to do some research. Age, condition and rarity set the price, so dont assume an old Hot Wheels or Barbie or a damaged teddy bear is worth only a few dollars. Q: I have a round vase made from a mortar shell from World War I. Its been in my husbands family for years. They got it from relatives in Europe. The brass vase is hammered and decorated. Its 8 inches high and has several letters and numbers marked on the bottom, including the date Jun 1 1917. Does it have any value? A: This is a form of folk art known as trench art. It started during World War I when soldiers in the trenches used metal casings from bullets and mortar shells to make vases, ashtrays, lamps, letter openers, and other objects. Now its used to describe art from other conflicts. The markings meant something to the person making the vase, but its impossible to decipher them now. June 1 probably was the date of an important battle. Other numbers and letters may identify the divi-

The value of your vase is about $200. Q: We found a picture of World War I soldiers in our attic. Its about a yard long. There appear to be about a hundred soldiers sitting and standing in front of a line of tents. It reads Co. L, 3rd Pioneer Inf., Camp Wadsworth, S.C., Moore Photo. Can you give us any information about this photo and its value? A: Camp Wadsworth was an army mobilization center from 1917 to 1919, during World War I. Pioneer Infantry regiments marched at the head of each battalion to clear the way. They did minor construction, maintained roads and bridges, and built trenches, bomb shelters, and gun emplacements. The War Department chose soldiers experienced in life in the open, skilled in woodcraft and simple carpentry. The soldiers were also trained as infantry, but their main job was clearing and preparing the way for the rest of the battalion. Contact the National Archives (www.archives.gov) for more information. If youre interested in selling the picture, you should contact an auction house that sells photos or military items. Q: I have an empty Pearl Harbor Beam Kentucky Whisky decanter that has an eagle carrying a bomb on the front between columns with the words Dec. 7, 1941 and Pearl Harbor. There is a picture of the memorial for the U.S.S. Arizona on the back. My husband was a Pearl Harbor survivor at Hickam Field. Id like to give the bottle to one of my children, but Im not sure of their interest. Is this bottle a collectors item? What is it worth, and where can I sell it if none of my children want it? A: This Pearl Harbor decanter was made for Beam by Regal China in 1972. Another decanter, with Pearl Harbor Survivors Association on the front and the island of Oahu and three ships on the back, was made in 1976. The Pearl Harbor Survivors Association was founded in 1958 and was disbanded because there were so few survivors still alive. These decanters usually sell online for $10 to $20.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC24 WEEK OF MAY 21-27, 2015 CUISINE NEWSSummer is the perfect time to savor your loyalty club points BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comWe have a question for you, Southwest Floridians: Why are you ignoring all the free food and drink youve earned? Culinary Concepts, the restaurant group that includes several large operations in downtown Naples, has found that its loyalty club members are not redeeming their points. The group is sitting on $35,770 in rewards, and it desperately wants account holders to use them. The reason we developed the reward system is so they can have an awesome experience with a deal, says Yvonne Ayala McClellan, a spokeswoman for the restaurant group. Loyalty programs have remained popular in American households, but according to a 2010 study by research firm Colloquy, about $48 billion in rewards go unclaimed in the U.S. each year. Ms. McClellan says this years audit of the Culinary Concepts program was a bit surprising. Customers have reliably redeemed their points in the past, and the company is baffled as to why this year is different, she says. Its just kind of an anomaly. We have ramped up our promotions to see if people are inspired to spend those dollars a bit more and weve also launched great summer discounts (for club members). To be clear, its not as if no one is using their Culinary Concepts rewards. Its just odd that there is so much left unclaimed. Active club members total 7,798 diners who redeemed $162,321 in rewards this year, while the club has 4,950 members are not using their cards and leaving roughly $35,000 on the table. Culinary Concepts restaurants are: Pazzo! Cucina Italiana, Yabba Island Grill and Chops City Grill in Naples and Blue Water Bistro at Coconut Point. Current specials for club members include a 20 percent discount on their entire bill at Yabbas Island Grill and 20 percent off white Burgundy wines throughout May at any of the groups restaurants.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 21-27, 2015 C25 THE DISHThe Dish: Patty Melt The Price: $8.49, served with coleslaw or French fries The Place: Patio Caf 10711 Tamiami Trail N., North Naples The Hours: 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., MondaySaturday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday The Full Menu: patiocafenaples.com The Details: I have a confession: I missed my mom on Mothers Day. Its not that I have a mom-shaped hole in my life, I just have more than one woman who needs attention on that particular holiday and my mom got the shaft this year. To be honest, so did I. To make up for it, we met for lunch the week after at Patio Caf to treat ourselves to something that wasnt on the good side of healthy. Im glad we did. My patty melt was straight-up traditional, served on toasted rye bread with sauted onions and Swiss cheese to complement the beef patty, which I chose to have prepared to medium doneness. Old-fashioned diner food is really the best comfort food, and it was great to have some mom time along with it. Another Thing: The menu at Patio Caf is devoted to traditional American fare, so I was surprised while scanning the menu to find a little corner devoted to Greek food. Diners can choose a gyro, chicken souvlaki and other Mediterranean selections. Mom ordered the souvlaki, which was served on a pita with tzatziki sauce, and loved it.

In case you havent, its the true story of the blind tasting in France in 1976 that proved to the world that American wines were, for the most part, every bit as good as their famous French competitors. The entire story is told in the wonderful book, The Judgment of Paris, by George Taber, who was a freelance writer in Paris at the time, and the only journalist interested enough to attend. Most people in France thought it was heresy to even consider that American wines might be up to their standards. A wine store owner in Paris named Steven Spurrier set up the event. He went to Napa Valley, brought back a selection of California wines, and set up the blind tasting in a hotel ballroom in downtown Paris. (In the movie, the tasting takes place in a much more picturesque ruined building in the countryside.) The evaluation was performed by five or six of the most famous, most expert wine authorities in France. By the time they had tasted and rated all the wines the unexpected happened. Chateau Montelena Chardonnay from Napa Valley came in first. Other American wines, such as Stags Leap, ranked high as well. The French were incredulous. Mortified. Very upset. Their evaluation, proving that an American wine can be equal in quality and sophistication to the finest, most expensive white burgundies shook the foundations of the international wine trade. Seriously. In fact, there is a bottle of the Chateau Montelena 1973 Chardonnay on display in the Smithsonian. Thats how important the event was. What the movie does not mention is that the Montelena Chardonnay was not made by the winerys owner Jim Barrett or by his son Bo, both of whom are the central focus of the picture. It was, in fact, made by their winemaker, a young Croatian immigrant named Mike Grgich. It is said that hes not depicted in the film because he didnt want to be involved. So the Barretts are front and center, and Mike has about 10 seconds of screen time, if you know exactly where to look. Shortly after the Judgment of Paris put Chateau Montelena and other Napa wines on the world map, Grgich set out on his own, establishing his Grgich Hills winery in 1976. Hes been turning out great juice every year since, and is now about 84 years old. We had the opportunity to sample two of his wines recently, and theyre both well worth seeking out. Grgich Hills Estate Merlot 2011 This wine is a lovely rich dark ruby color in the glass with a nose of lavender and dark fruit. It took a while to open up, but then offered hints of plum, coffee and blueberry. WW 93 Grgich Hills Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Although it could use a few years of cellaring or about a day of decanting, there are flavors of cassis, pepper and chocolate. The tannins are tight, but the wine opened up nicely in about an hour. WW 94-95 In addition, we enjoyed a few other samples in the past two weeks. Kendall Jackson, long known for its value wines, has started to kick things up a notch with a more premium-level offering called Grand Reserve. Its chardonnay is a great buy at around $14. We tried the 2013 vintage that gave off pronounced aromas of oak and peach, with nice apple notes on the palate and a medium-long finish. Watch this space for a column on new ros wines. Theyve never been out of fashion, but tasty versions from several regions are hitting the market, and providing exciting flavors at good prices. Like this one: Mulderbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Ros 2014 Its a medium pink ros color in the glass, with aromas of roses and lavender. The palate sh ows notes of rose petals, pomegranate and strawberry, with some refreshing tartness on the finish. WW 90.

CUISINENeighborhood Organics: No waiting for a weekend farmers marketUntil six months ago, Neapolitans opportunities to purchase locally produced products were limited. Most farmers markets were open only one day a week, and shoppers who became hooked on a particular product often found themselves on the hunt (and coming up dry) for an accessible retail outlet to provide it when their market was closed. Reliable access was an obstacle to both customers and budding business owners. But then Laura Sloat, Janet Blanchard and Jenny Breton partnered up to opened Neighborhood Organics, an offshoot of the popular farmers market that has inhabited Shoppes at Vanderbilt for several years now. The small storefront in the center now offers local vendors the opportunity to increase the availability of their products to local shoppers. We wanted to capture those customers who might not be able to get here on Saturday, Ms. Sloat says. The key to the stores success, she adds, is keeping its offerings local and natural. We have a lot of paleo customers and a lot of gluten-free customers. Were not trying to compete with the bigger box stores, she says. We want to be a local neighborhood store. Other local businesses have been able to gain a foothold in Naples thanks to Neighborhood Organics and have shared its success. While the storefront operation has far exceeded sales expectation in its first six months of operation, local brands such as Top Dog Kitchen and Juicelation have seen similar growth since Neighborhood Organics starting carrying their products. Sebastian Mancera and Zan DeCicco, co-owners of the juicing company Juicelation, placed their blends in Neighborhood Organics refrigerators earlier this year, adding to the area yoga studios they supply. Because the store is close to their kitchen, they can provide a product that is as fresh as possible. The shelf life on our products isnt as long as other products in there, Mr. Mancera says, adding Neighborhood Organics is very good at keeping them moving, he said. Weve added machines, weve got trucks now. Theres a big need here, and weve seen a lot of customers who are very appreciative. Top Dog Kitchen is already a bit of a success story, but Neighborhood Organics has greatly helped the dog treat company increase customer access to their popular products. Because it already has a storefront and a loyal local following, adding a North Naples pickup location to the kitchens operation has helped its customers tremendously. We just had a customer Saturday and he said oh my, gosh, Im up at North Naples and I cant get to your shop, said Kathleen Menchero, co-owner of Top Dog Kitchen. Hes one of many I point toward Neighborhood Organics. And then, there are the companies who use the store to manage growth. Stuffum Naturals makes protein cookie dough and ships it to customers who purchase it online. Owner Ashley Stritenberger chose Neighborhood Organics as her only retail location. Theyre my first retail location, and the reason I chose them is that my company is still growing and I love what they stand for, Ms. Stritenberger says. They want to focus on business thats local. Even better, she adds, theres no competition among products in the store. They dont want doubles of the same product. Neighborhood Organics also sells bags of assorted locally grown organic vegetables for $15. Theres no subscription required, but customers must call ahead and can only buy one bag a week. Customer Ashley Kientzle is happy with the arrangement. The weekly vegetable bags have been great, she says. You can get a lot of organic stuff at Publix, but (Neighborhood Organics) gets stuff from local farms, and supporting them is what I look for. Now that they are confident of success, Ms. Sloat says she and her partners have plans to add a kitchen and offer coffee, tea, smoothies and baked goods prepared onsite. Ms. Blanchard would also use the kitchen for her My Dinner Factory business, for which she now rents space from a local caterer. For now, the partners plan to stay in their little store, even though Ms. Sloat feels they have already outgrown it. Its a great shopping center, she says about the location. Its growing so crazy here, and we get a lot of foot traffic. Were definitely going to renew. The store at 2359 Vanderbilt Beach Road is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. MondayFriday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday (closed Sunday).
