OR GAY COUPLES IN FLORIDA, THE PAST seven months have been a time of awe. A federal judges ruling in late December cleared the way for marriage equality in the state, and a U.S. Supreme Court ruling June 26 made it the law of the land. They were two events most gay couples thought never would happen. And they translate into big bucks. Nationally, the economic boost from marriage of same-sex couples could be up to $2.6 billion in just the first three years, according to the Williams Institute at University of California, Los Angeles.

The city of Naples and the Naples Historical Society will have 1,000 planks to sell for $100 each. The pier was last rebuilt in 1996, so the pieces up for grabs are not from the original structure that was built in 1888. The structure has undergone six partial or total rebuilds since it was originally installed, four of which were necessitated by damage from hurricanes. Mother Nature rebuilt (the pier) a few times, Mayor John Sorey says. But this time its to make it a better and safer place for our residents and businesses. Naples Historical Society, in having partnered with the city to sell the planks, will number each board and provide the purchaser with a certificate validating the authenticity of the artifact. We know were not selling historic planks. Thats not the point, says Elaine Reed, NHS president and CEO. The planks represent the symbolic importance of the pier then and now.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 16-22, 2015 Bring Your Highest Expectations LIVINGSTON ROADPINE RIDGE ROAD EXIT 107WHIPPORWILL LANE N From the high $300s $600s COMMENTARY The panther pragmatistsOne of the great virtues of the American character is pragmatism, defined as dealing with things sensibly and realistically in a way that is based on practical rather than theoretical considerations. Unfortunately, theoretical considerations are sometimes synonymous with theological, philosophical, ethical, cultural, environmental or democratic considerations, which tend to get in the way of getting the job done with no fuss or muss. There are other touted American virtues as well, all of them offshoots either of the 18th and 19th-century American frontier or the immigrant musculature of urban America: rugged individualism (as it used to be called). Inventiveness, ambition, a hard-work ethic, self-reliance. But pragmatism fascinates me, especially after I learned from Craig Pittman, a writer for the Tampa Bay Times, that Collier County cattle rancher Liesa Priddy just helped rewrite Floridas panther policies for Nick Wiley, executive director of the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Them danged panthers are getting in the way of us Americans and our right to make a profit, they concluded. In effect, that sums up the new state panther policy they created, or it will if the commission signs off on it in September. Like the pragmatists they are, the two did the job without consulting wildlife biologists or anybody else in a serious way. When Mr. Pittman used public records to look at the new proposal, he even learned that Ms. Priddy helped Mr. Wiley edit the thing line by line. Together, they decided that too many panthers live south of the Caloosahatchee River because the animals are eating Ms. Priddys calves 10 of them in two years across her 9,300acre spread, at least, each worth $1,000 by her estimate. Theyre eating a few of her neighbors animals as well, apparently. And that meant war, a carefully waged war on the panther status quo, such as it is. Her ability to influence the future of the Florida panther was the culmination of a carefully crafted and very pragmatic strategy that relied not on the traditional method of panther control a Winchester 30-30 rifle or its equivalent but on a more modern solution: political influence. In January of 2012, Ms. Priddy, who had by then captured the admiration of Gov. Rick Scott, got herself appointed to the states wildlife commission as the pointperson for panthers because Im the one whos living it on a daily basis, she told Mr. Pittman. She sees no conflict of interest because shes a pragmatist. She and Mr. Wiley also decided, pragmatically, that since there are no places set aside as habitat to protect panthers north of the Caloosahatchee River and all the way to the Georgia state line, which is about 320 miles, why should anybody bother? Its just not realistic or pragmatic in this day and age to support panthers, suggests Ms. Priddy especially not by establishing three populations of them, each of about 240 animals: one south of the Caloosahatchee and two more north of it. Federal Fish and Wildlife officials have stipulated that if two populations of at least 240 animals can be established, theyll downgrade the Florida panther status from endangered to threatened. And if we can establish three that would mean about 720 panthers needing to eat the equivalent of a deer or a couple of hogs per week in a state of about 20 million humans who knows what could happen? Federal officials havent said, but the panther would likely come off the endangered and the threatened lists altogether. And that might mean wed be able to get licenses and shoot a few of them again. Just like we get to start shooting black bears again, beginning this fall. Im even thinking if we bring back the American bison in sufficient quantities in the Midwest, we could start shooting them again, too maybe from trains, just like the old days. But well save that discussion for another time. The panther recovery to 720 animals is probably not doable, figures Ms. Priddy. She represented a group of like-minded pragmatists at a meeting of state and federal wildlife officials in Naples last fall. I wonder if were trying to put a square peg in a round hole, she said in comments quoted in the Naples Daily News. Not every species can be recovered. I think thats something we need to hold out there and be considered. South of the Caloosahatchee, however, the species has recovered significantly by everyones accounting. From a low of about 20 in the 1970s the population has climbed to about 180 now, or more, depending on whos figuring: either the wildlife biologists and observers who actually track and count panthers, or the ranchers and some hunters who figure anecdotally that the creatures are about to overrun Immokalee and Naples and Everglades City and start eating small children and members of the Rotary Club and old women or men crossing the street. Pragmatically speaking, there are a lot of solutions to this, most of them already proposed at one time or another: Let panthers live in the wild places that include ranch lands, and pay ranchers for their lost stock. Or use Amendment One money, more than $700 million in this year alone, to buy suitable panther habitat from private owners north of the Caloosahatchee, as it was intended, rather than using the money to pay for salaries and program maintenance in state bureaucracies and programs, as legislators have allowed. Or the final solution: we could just get real, in a pragmatic sense. Few of us ever see a panther in the wild. They dont go to the mall or restaurants or spas or the supermarket. They dont vote. Thus, panthers dont influence our lives at all, really. Why not just let them go and die out, like we did passenger pigeons or ivory-billed woodpeckers? We are, after all, pragmatists, arent we? d b w t l e roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

NBC, Univision and Macys all have thrown The Donald under the bus, in the heaviest blow to schlock culture in this country since the cancellation of Jersey Shore. The carnage ranges across media, encompassing reality TV (Celebrity Apprentice), entertainment properties (the Miss USA Pageant), fashion (the Donald J. Trump Signature Collection) and even fragrance (Success by Trump). The shunning of Trump is in response to his, uh, memorable presidential announcement that included comments about the alleged rampant criminality of Mexican immigrants theyre drug runners, rapists, etc. that were typically crude. As it happens, Trumps new enemies are doing him an enormous political favor, at least in the short term. There are few things that benefit a Republican candidate in the current environment of left-wing bullying more than getting fired and boycotted for something hes said. Trumps instantly notorious Mexico comments did more to insult than to illuminate, yet a kernel in them hit on an important truth that typical politicians either dont know or simply fear to speak. When Mexico sends its people, Trump said, theyre not sending their best. This is obviously correct. We arent raiding the top 1 percent of Mexicans and importing them to this country. Instead, we are getting representative Mexicans, who through no fault of their own come from a poorly educated country at a time when education is essential to success in an advanced economy. Trumps comments made it sound as though Mexico is sending us moral defectives. But immigrants are willing to work. Immigrant men ages 18-65 are in the labor force at a higher rate than native men. Its just that a lack of education hampers even hard-working people. This is illustrated in an exhaustive report by Steven Camarota of the Center for Immigration Studies, which favors a lower level of immigration. Immigrants here from Mexico which has sent more immigrants than any other country for decades have the lowest levels of education. Nearly 60 percent of them havent graduated from high school. This puts Mexican immigrants at a disadvantage, and it shows. Nearly 35 percent of immigrants from Mexico and their U.S.-born children are in poverty; nearly 68 percent are in or near poverty. This is the highest level for immigrants from any country. Immigrants make progress on almost every indicator over time, but are still far behind natives after two decades. For all its crassness, Trumps rant on immigration is closer to reality than the gauzy cliches of immigration romantics, who are unwilling to acknowledge that there might be an issue welcoming large numbers of high-school dropouts into a 21st-century economy. If we dont want to add to the ranks of the poor, the uninsured and the welfare-dependent, we should have fewer low-skilled immigrants assuming saying that is not yet officially considered a hate crime. The point could be made much more deftly and accurately by anyone not named Donald J. Trump. In the meantime, he fills the vacuum, and enjoys the whirlwind. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION f s c i a c rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Hate pop culture? Blame F. Scott FitzgeraldFor those who despair over the hijacking of our popular culture by reality television and by the endless procession of faux celebrities who insist on sharing every intimate detail of their lives, laffaire Caitlyn Jenner comes as no surprise. What should have been a private, somber process of self-reflection and renewal by Caitlyn nee Bruce was transformed by the Kardashian spin machine into an odious spectacle that was tailor-made for television and mass public consumption. How we came to this sorry state of affairs is story unto itself. Most would trace the evolution of our obsessively confessional and voyeuristic society along a line that begins with Barbara Walters and People magazine and continues on through Oprah, Diane Sawyer, Entertainment Tonight, Paris Hilton, the Kardashians and a host of contemporary offenders too numerous to list here. But the true progenitor of all this nonsense was F. Scott Fitzgerald. Oddly, the man who gave us The Great Gatsby also paved the way for reality television and the horrifically maudlin and weepy autobiographical tomes that are cranked out every year by an inexhaustible assembly line of third-rate entertainers, artists and has-beens. By 1936, Fitzgerald though barely 40 years old was irrelevant. Gatsby had been published about a decade earlier, but the memory of this classic had receded and it would be years before it was widely regarded once again. Desperate for attention and money, Fitzgerald fixed on a plan. He would write for Esquire magazine a series of tell-all essays which came to be known as The Crack-Up in which he outlined in excruciating detail his torment and diminished circumstances. Such a work was unthinkable at that time. Generally, writers held to the notion that personal pain was something that fueled their fiction. Fitzgerald turned this idea upside down because he felt he had no other choice. At The Crack-Up stage, nothing could harm his career it could only help, observed Arnold Gingrich, Esquires editor in 1936. Gingrich went on to note that Fitzgeralds profile had sunk so low that a lot of people thought he was dead. Fitzgeralds bleak essays (in a real dark night of the soul it is always three oclock in the morning, day after day) chronicled his fears, insecurities, failures and general inability to fashion a meaningful life. The author himself admitted that the essays were the literary equivalent of extending a tin cup of self-pity. Fitzgeralds contemporaries (Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos in particular) were horrified by what they perceived to be a massive display of personal weakness and self-flagellation. They predicted that Fitzgerald had ruined any chance of future success. But, in the end, Fitzgerald proved to have the superior instincts. Readers were fascinated, and interest in Fitzgerald sprang anew. Although he had failed miserably years earlier as a writer in Hollywood, The Crack-Up intrigued executives at movie studios, and Fitzgerald was given another shot as a screenwriter not long after the essays were published. The personal revelations in The Crack-Up blasted open the reticence that had characterized American literature before World War II, Jeffrey Meyers, a Fitzgerald biographer, has written. A lot of years separate The CrackUp from our current situation, but Fitzgerald doubtlessly started us on the road to the Kardashians, Caitlyn Jenner, Honey Boo Boo, Duck Dynasty, the disgraced Duggar family and all the rest. One can only yearn for the time when public figures accepted responsibility and refused to pander to morbid curiosity. Such was the case in 1948, when Robert Mitchum a legitimate movie star was arrested for smoking marijuana in a bungalow with a woman who was not his wife. Mitchum was caught dead to rights, and he did not moan or seek refuge in a treatment facility. He accepted his punishment, which was confinement for a couple of months at a prison farm. (When similar situations occur today, the template is to enter rehab, then appear on shows like Dr. Phil and finally write a soul-searing book about redemption.) When Mitchum was released, reporters were waiting for him. Yes, boys, I was smoking a marijuana cigarette when they came in, he said. I knew Id get caught sooner or later. The actor said prison wasnt so bad, adding that it was just like a weekend in Palm Springs, only you meet a better class of people. Now, he added, if youll excuse me, Im heading for home. And that was that. Robert Mitchum died in 1997, well before the ascendency of reality television, and thats just as well. He was a fine actor, an authentic tough guy and honest to a fault. He would have made a lousy reality TV star. p a E e l a bill CORNWELLSpecial to Florida Weekly

Its Chihuahuas. The little bug-eyed boogers constitute one of every three dogs that enter the no-kill shelter. In anticipation of an influx of the breed from other area shelters that face the same problem, HSN needs help offloading 50 Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes (to loving forever homes, of course). To that end, the shelter is running a Chihuahua fire sale of sorts. Through July, those who adopt a Chihuahua or part-Chihuahua participate in the pay what they weigh promotion, where the poochs poundage is converted to dollars for the adoption fee. For example, a 4-pound dog can be yours for $4. (The shelters normal adoption fee for a dog weighing less than 20 pounds is $150.) Chihuahua overpopulation is not a problem in just Collier County, but across the country. Why? We dont have to reach that far back in our memories to remember when celebutantes paraded their pint-sized pooches in handbags and breeders responded to the fashion by overbreeding. Unfortunately, after the popular Chihuahua movies and reality TV shows that feature them, people tend to see Chihuahuas as accessories, Rachael Johnston, coordinator of marketing for the shelter, says. No one can deny that Chihuahuas are handy little pups that make good company, travel well and emote a vulnerability that pulls at the heartstrings of protective types. But no dog or pet should be treated like an accessory. Ms. Johnston says the Chihuahua overpopulation problem is exacerbated in Southwest Florida because the area isnt very pet-friendly when owners are house hunting. Condo associations, property managers and landlords veer on the side of not allowing pets, so people are often placed in the position of having to choose between a home and their pet. People are left to make the decision of looking for a pet-friendly place to live or surrendering their animal to the shelter, she says. Too many people dont put their pets at the top of the list when it comes to major life decisions. Its sad. Compounding the problem is the sneaking suspicion that pet owners arent fixing their small dogs and are choosing to sell puppies instead. Which is dumb. Some critical thinking and basic concern for their pet and its potential offspring should preclude willy-nilly breeding practices that place puppies back in shelters. Its almost like they feel as if its easier to care for itty bitty Chihuahua puppies and sell them on craigslist or to friends and family, Ms. Johnston says. In reality, lots of those puppies become a little older and are brought to HSN in search of a home once again. One solution that has been used in other areas of the country is to transport the oversupply of Chihuahuas to regions where they arent as abundant. They never last long in the Northeast, says Emily Weiss, vice president of research and development at the American Society for Cruelty to Animals. They get adopted pretty quickly, Ms. Weiss says about Chihuahuas that make it to the Northeast in search of permanent homes. If youre in the market for a small dog, consider a Chihuahua from Humane Society Naples, where this month the cheerful little lap warmers are cheap, too.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 16-22, 2015 that could be in the neighborhood of $182.2 million over three years, as an estimated 24,248 couples spend money on weddings, honeymoons and other travel, and generate about 875 jobs. Visit Florida, the pubic/private partnership that promotes tourism in the state, has actively boosted the state as a locale for same-sex weddings from the beginning. On Jan. 6, as thousands of gay couples exchanged vows thr oughout Florida, the agency dispatched photographers and videographers to nine cities to capture the visual proof of why the state is a great place to get married. Visit Florida cites strong relationships with LGBT media partners, including Edge Media Network and Proud FM Toronto, and has run co-op advertising in a range of publications, including Bridal Guide, Brides, New York Weddings, inserts with Davids Bridal stores and Coastal Living Weddings, among others. So far in fiscal year 2014-15, we have run seven promotions targeting the LGBT audience, for a media value of $6.94 million and 190 million impressions, according to Kenneth MorganSchleuning, public relations manager for Visit Florida. In Southwest Florida, officials in Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in January, soon after the judges ruling cleared the way for weddings to begin. In Palm Beach County, officials immediately embraced the opportunity. Sharon Bock, Palm Beach County clerk and comptroller, performed a mass wedding for 80 couples at midnight Jan. 6, the moment it was legal for her to do so, at the South County Courthouse in Delray Beach. Over 300 people showed up. My opportunity to see and walk through and talk to them was magic, she said. There were so many tears of joy. Palm Beach County tourism officials are capitalizing on that joy. Weve had a trajectory of being supportive of this effort and I think now with this national law, which we think is the right path, we will put additional content on our website and marketing content in magazines and such, said Jorge Pesquera, CEO of Discover The Palm Beaches, citing such popular local events as Pride Fest, in March, and the Stonewall Ball, in June. As it is, the county draws about 6.3 million people each year. About 3.5 million of those were domestic travelers. Two million came from within the state and about 800,000 came from international markets. Were truly part of a South Florida mentality that is very international, very global in thinking and very open to whatever is happening in the world and were very proud of that, he said. In Southwest Florida, tourism officials are taking things more slowly. We havent taken an LGBT approach, and there are no specific marketing efforts, said Tamara Pigott, executive director of the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau in Fort Myers. But marriage tourism in general never was something Lee County promoted anyway, and Ms. Pigott said she didnt expect Florida to be a place where gay couples would be rushing to get hitched. The first states that really jumped in had a really big boost, but when youre state No. 34, who was coming here to get married? she said. Now, if you want to have a beautiful beach wedding, theyre coming here because they want to get married here. With our folks, we have the same plans and packages. Theres no differentiation. That doesnt mean the county does not want gay travelers to visit, though. In a few places, we have done some LGBT efforts. Internationally, we work with TomOnTour, but we never approached our destination with (marriage) specifically in mind, Ms. Pigott said. Our doors are open to all. TomOnTour is an international gay travel site. She said about 3 million visitors come to stay in hotels and other accommodations, while an additional 2 million come to visit friends and relatives. Some of that definitely is the LGBT market, Ms. Pigott said. I think every community has a really different approach. Its a new concept in Charlotte County. We are just beginning to explore weddings and LGBT as niche markets, according to Lorah Steiner, the countys director of tourism. That might have happened sooner, had the economy not crashed. When it, along with the countys budget began to impr ove, our first priority was to strengthen our position in our known feeder markets, e.g.: Allegiant markets; Canada, Germany, the UK, Chicago, Philadelphia, Michigan, New York and New Jersey, Ms. Steiner wrote in an email. Allegiant Air is the airline that flies into Punta Gorda Airport. We also needed to greatly increase our instate marketing for summer and shoulder seasons. Collier County banks on its wedding tourism. We are estimating that 3 percent of Colliers 2014 visitors, or 53,200 people, traveled to the destination for weddings or honeymoons.

But it has not reached out directly to gay tourists. No, we dont have a specific reachout at the present time. We think were capturing a good deal of that just with our weddings market, said Jack Wert, CVB director. We listen pretty closely to our hotel partners. They havent expressed an interest for us to do more than were doing. Resorts in the Palm Beaches and the Florida Keys are targeting the LGBT market.

I was tickled. I was glad that they got their civil rights. I think love is just love. Im tickled to death about it. I think its just great, she said. All things being equal, it wasnt just about the equality. Mrs. Totterdale owns Florida Weddings Online, a wedding planning service based in Fort Myers. She said she organizes and officiates about 90 weddings a year; she has planned four same-sex weddings since January, and has two more on the books. I do mostly destination weddings, so theyre coming from outside the state of Florida to get married here, she said. Regular weddings now carry an average price of $26,000, according to Shane McMurray, CEO of The Wedding Report. Destination weddings can carry an average price tag of $10,000-$15,000, simply because they are smaller, with groups of 50 or less, Mrs. Totterdale said. In Southwest Florida, those destinations have included Sanibel, Captiva, Fort Myers Beach and Naples Beach. Theres a range of age groups. I married a couple of guys who were in their 50s and a couple of girls that were in their 30s, said Mrs. Totterdale, who has been a wedding planner for 30 years; she and her husband have been married 43 years. Those destination weddings tend to be smaller than weddings by locals, generally with 50 people or less. Some of them are two people, some are 10 people and some of them are midweek weddings. They dont all get married on Saturday to Sunday, said Mrs. Totterdale. And nuptials? They are a time at which differences dissolve. Its very friendly here. Its fun here. Gay weddings are just like any other wedding. Theyre friendand familyoriented. Its very much the same as any other wedding. Scott SimmonsLove is just love, marriage planner says COURTESY PHOTOSue Totterdale, a wedding planner for 30 years, eagerly embraced marriage equality. COURTESY PHOTOEau Palm Beach Resort & Spa in Manalapan has reached out to LGBT travelers for two years.like to get married in a beautiful oceanfront resort, he said. We continue to get inquiries from people around Florida. Part of that is because of advertising in such gayoriented media as Passport Magazine. Were a Preferred hotel, and we have a specific network, called the Preferred Pride network, that reaches that community, Mr. Gold said. It lets them know we are inclusive and can host same-sex celebrations. The same could be said in the Florida Keys, where Cheeca Lodge has been welcoming guests to Islamorada for nearly seven decades. Because of the good fortune of Florida passing the acceptance of gay marriage before the Supreme Court, we were able to get a jump on it, said Deanne Gabel, the luxury hotels general manager, who joined the company last year. Well do on the average one wedding a weekend every weekend of the year, she said. Cheeca Lodge had hosted commitment ceremonies before same-sex marriages were legal. Right away, we got engaged with Human Rights Campaign and got around their efforts on gay marriage, Ms. Gabel said. Cheeca Lodge has not yet hosted a same-sex marriage, but Ms. Gabel acknowledged that its expensive. Theres a starting price of around $20,000, so were probably looking at the upper end of the market, she said. Ms. Gabel said its important for the resort to reach out to all facets of society. I think its critical for us because well celebrate our 70th anniversary next year. We are a well-known hospitality establishment in the Keys. It is important with me being gay to serve every cross-section of our market, she said. There also is logic in reaching out. From a business perspective, it just makes sense, Ms. Gabel said. Its good that were extending an arm or a hand and saying you are welcome here. GABEL READ THE DIVA, STEPHANIE DAVIS ACCOUNT OF HER FIRST GAY WEDDING ON PAGE A23

The list is available for Naples, Bonita Springs, Marco Island and Estero starting at $150,000. Collier corporal honored as nations top D.A.R.E. officerCpl. Ken Vila of the Collier County Sheriffs Office has been named 2015 D.A.R.E. Officer of the Year by D.A.R.E. America. The national award is in recognition of Cpl. Vilas dedication to drug-abuse prevention among youth in the community. D.A.R.E. stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education. Cpl. Vila was named the nations top D.A.R.E. officer from among dozens of candidates from around the country, including three from Florida. He is also the 2015 Florida D.A.R.E. Officer of the Year. Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk presented the award to Cpl. Vila during the Florida Association of School Resource Officers conference in Orlando. Also at the conference, the CCSO Youth Relations Bureau was honored as Agency of the Year for its contributions to the school resource officer profession. As part of the fifth-grade curriculum, the D.A.R.E. program gives students the skills they need to avoid involvement in drugs, alcohol, tobacco use, over-the-counter and prescription drugs, bullying, gangs, cyber-bullying, violence and other negative activities. Cpl. Vila began his law enforcement career with CCSO in 1989 and has spent his entire career as a youth relations deputy, including 22 years as a D.A.R.E. instructor. He is currently one of 47 D.A.R.E. officers in a cadre of 56 CCSO youth relations deputies. He is the most experienced and most versed in the D.A.R.E. curriculum. No question, Cpl. Vila is certainly the go-to guy when it comes to D.A.R.E., says Sheriff Rambosk, who is a member of the D.A.R.E. America International Law Enforcement Advisory Board. Cpl. Vila became a certified D.A.R.E. instructor in 1994. He took his training and experience to the next level in 2012 when he became a D.A.R.E. mentor. Without exception, Cpl. Vila has molded and influenced at least two generations of Collier County citizens, Sheriff Rambosk says. In the early morning of April 29, 2012, Cpl. Vila was confronted with a decision that all law enforcement officers realize they may face. While home alone he was awakened by the sound of breaking glass. At that moment, he knew his life and home were threatened. The intruder failed to heed Cpl. Vilas warnings and orders and continued to pursue him while yielding a weapon. Cpl. Vila was left with no option but to shoot the intruder. In the aftermath, he says, he found comfort in words posted online by a former D.A.R.E. student under a newspaper story about the shooting: Cpl. Vila was my D.A.R.E. officer. He is not only a good deputy, but is a good, moral man who cares about people. COURTESY PHOTO Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk, left, presented Cpl. Ken Vila with the 2015 Florida D.A.R.E. Officer of the Year award earlier this month in Orlando. In August, Cpl. Vila will travel to New Orleans to receive D.A.R.E. Americas 2015 National D.A.R.E.

Until the service was forced to pull the announcement, applications were coming in at the rate of one every 20 seconds, with 14,000 emails greeting the employer the first morning. The sex shop emphasized that the tester must be driven, methodical and with patience and a knowledge of Microsoft Excel.It pays to failThe enormous compensation CEOs of large corporations receive is justified in part by their bringing prosperity to their shareholders, but last year (an excellent one for most investors), two of the nations best-paid chief executives earned handsome raises despite presiding over losses: Philippe Dauman of Viacom (paid $44.3 million, stock lost 6.6 percent) and Jeffrey Immelt of General Electric (an 88 percent raise to $37.3 million, stock lost 6.7 percent). CEO Steven Newman of Transocean earned only $14.2 million, according to a June Wall Street Journal report, but that was a 2.2 percent boost for stewardship that resulted in one of 2014s biggest flops Transoceans 59.9 percent loss for its shareholders. The entrepreneurial spiritThe Japanese, especially, report a decline of intimacy (for instance, a recent estimate found that about a quarter of 30-year-olds had never had sex with another person) convenient for a Kyot o research institutes announcement in June that it had developed a huggable, human-sized, featureless pillow (resembling Casper the Friendly Ghost), with skin-like texture, to serve as an embraceable intimacy substitute. For people with actual lovers, the Hugvie (retailing for the equivalent of $80) has a mouth slot for a cellphone to enable running sweet talk with a remote companion. Redneck Marketing Challenges: (1) Scotty and Beverly Franklin of Springfield, Mo., are trying to tempt cowboys to wear leather boots retrofitted to be open-toed sandals. KHOU-TV (Houston) reported that the Franklins can sandal-up your favorite pair for $75. (2) One of the more reviled products of 2015 is a gun-shaped iPhone case, which so alarms police that it suddenly in early July became hard to find, even at the online Japan Trend Shop, which previously offered models from $5 to $49. Asked one officer, Why would you want to make yourself look like a threat (to cops)? Family valuesIn a recent BBC documentary, the son of renowned cosmologist Stephen Hawking (Tim, now 36) revealed that his dad is hugely competitive and showed him no compassion at all when he was growing up. Tim said two of his few avenues of coping with such a famous, oblivious father were when he used to race around in his dads specialized (and expensive) wheelchair (pretending it was a go-kart) and, for those deliciously awkward moments, adding cuss words to his fathers synthesized speech software.Latest religious messagesJihadists governing ISIS Euphrates province recently outlawed the popular hobby of breeding pigeons and threatened violators with flogging and imprisonment. The ban was initially thought to be aimed at frustrating pigeon-messaging to the outside world, but the published prohibition mentions other justifications the hobbys frivolity (wasting time that could better be spent praying) and the special offense to God (because pigeons are uncovered, with exposed genitals). God Is Love: (1) In a June YouTube video reported by various news sites, Tempe, Ariz., pastor Steven Anderson (Faithful Word Baptist Church) prayed for God to rip out the heart of Caitlyn Jenner, for whom Rev. Anderson expresses a perfect hatred for announcing she was no longer Bruce. (2) On his 00 Club TV program in June, Pat Robertson patiently explained to a grieving mother why God could have allowed her 3-year-old son to die of illness that God saw the big picture and knew, for instance, that the kid could have become a serial killer or contracted a hideous disease, and that she should be relieved that God took him early. Cant stop myselfEsteban Rocha, 51, was arrested in June in Placerville, Calif., and charged with exposing himself to a woman about 25 minutes after Mr. Rocha had left the Placerville Police Department, where he had dutifully gone to register his location so that police could keep track of him. Recurring themesNews of the Weird tracks the armed and clumsy, who cant avoid shooting themselves accidentally, but then there are these guys: (1) Adam Hirtle, 30, of Colorado Springs, Colo., checked into a hospital on June 10 after intentionally shooting himself in the foot with a .22-caliber handgun twice, curious to see how it felt (with and without his boot to compare pain levels). (2) Jeremiah Raber, 38, recently commenced a crowdfunding campaign for a kids sports version of his Nutshellz jockstrap according to Mr. Raber the strongest such apparel in the world, made from breakthrough Dyneema (supposedly half the weight of Kevlar but twice as strong).

Brought to you in part by like us on facebook BEHIND THE WHEELThe best roadster you dont have the guts to buyThere is a major difference between a car that you l ove, and one that you will pay to have in your driveway. The Mazda MX-5 Miata is a prime example of this paradox. Some people actively avoid this perfect roadster because getting into a Miata is easier than getting into a nightclub with no doorman. Its affordable. It is an unfortunate arrogance that makes one of the best cars around one of the more underappreciated as well. Now that there is a new MX-5 coming to dealers this summer, will it finally set an unavoidable benchmark? This upcoming car is a home run of design. It keeps the sporty 91-inch wheelbase of its predecessor, but the 2016 car loses a few inches off the back. The result is a long-nose body with a short rear. It makes this sports car a loaded slingshot with the driver as the projectile. The previous generations have been accused of being too cute, and so the new MX-5 looks like it spent the last few years at the gym. Gone are gentle rounded angles that have been replaced with defined muscular ridges and a chiseled jaw line. The old car smiled; this one snarls. Theres a Jekyll and Hyde complex that happens when stepping into most roadsters. The body-hugging interior feels amazing when the top is down, but the moment rain hits, the compact roof turns the two-seater into a claustrophobic cocoon. Mazda has avoided this problem by placing as many center console controls below the drivers dials as possible. This may seem trivial at first, but it allows for a lower dashboard and a more airy atmosphere due to increased visibility. Even with a narrow space for components, Mazda has found room to finally add an optional touchscreen infotainment system. Its similar to whats already in the Mazda3, which means the functions are clear and simple. In fact, in an interior this size, everything is well within reach, including the very important St art button. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine fires up with a low-level gurgle thats like a Ferrari cut in half. This is the same fuel-efficient 155 hp SkyActiv motor that is available elsewhere in Mazdas lineup, but it has been re-tuned for sports car duty so it will never be mistaken for a crossover. Whether taking off from a stoplight or a start line, everything feels so perfectly in tune. The light steering is good for around town and makes for easy work carving up a backroad. The standard six-speed manual is just inches from the wheel, so it just feels like an extra limb. The suspension has been engineered to inspire hijinks, but it relays so much information to the driver that real trouble will require serious intent. The grip of the rear tires is transmitted precisely enough that its easy to feel the moment right before they squeal (by then the sprightly and balanced MX-5 is already around the corner and gripping the pavement again.) In a vehicle this narrow, all this fun can be done without leaving the lane. So now you dont even need to stop for coffee to perk up your morning commute. With all of these positives, why does it take guts to buy one? A colleague commented that he thought the roadster was underpowered. This was his telltale mistake, but it is a popular opinion. The Miata was not designed to compete with the Porsche Boxster a car that doubles the MX-5s $25,735 base price and adds 110 more horsepower. Instead, it was built in the grand tradition of the affordable European roadsters. The classic MGs, Triumphs and Alfa Romeos rewarded drivers who shifted often by providing good performance with an outstanding exhaust note. These vintage cars understand that when the pistons are racing, so is the drivers pulse. But Mazda went one step further. Driving an old European roadster used to be a badge of honor. They were so horribly unreliable that owners had to be mechanically handy just to leave their garage. Mazda has instead brought the roadster to the masses by offering the precision of a Swiss watch at a Seiko price. In an age where Corvettes can hit illegal speeds in second gear and Mercedes has a 577 hp station wagon, the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata is driving purity without overkill. It was designed to be a toy for enthusiasts. So throw out the schoolyard rules, and dont let the fact that anyone can play ruin the experience of the best car for the money.

Susan Suarez of Suarez & Associates will present the workshop from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Thursday, July 23, at Hodges U., 2647 Professional Way. Ms. Suarez outlines the stages of every organizations life cycle in this order: start-up, adolescence, maturity, stagnation/renewal and decline. And she cautions that a one-size-fits-all approach to roles, responsibilities and board structures is a recipe for disaster that can actually be dangerous to the board and the nonprofit. She will guide participants through an organizational assessment to help them identify where they are in the organizational life cycle so they can more effectively and efficiently define the boards collective role, build a board structure and address specific needs within the organization. Registration is $35. Sign up by calling Marian Klink at the Center for Nonprofit Excellence, 598-6284, or by emailing email@example.com.

Memory is often overlooked during health-care checkups. This can be attributed to misperceptions and fears, perhaps the most common of which is an apprehension that nothing can be done about memory loss. But many forms of memory loss are reversible, and for other forms of memory loss, early detection is the key. Screenings will take approximately 20 minutes. Results and further recommendations will be mailed. Call Rachel Russell at Brookdale Bonita Springs, 948-2600, for an appointment.

Book review: Good news for those on the path to recovery from strokeStroke Victor: How to Go from Stroke Victim to Stroke Victor by Bob Mandell. Creative Projects International. 256 pages. Trade paperback, $16.95. This marvelous self-help book is likely to save or extend a lot of lives. However, its central focus is enhancing the quality of life for those who have undergone lifechanging illnesses or injuries. While the information and advice is primarily for stroke victims, Bob Mandells guidance can be applied to many different situations in which recovery from a disability is sought. His personal story is the engaging and inspiring trunk and branches of the book. On these branches, Mr. Mandell has hung the fruits of what he has learned. For me, his most widely applicable piece of advice is the need to take responsibility, to question, to be an aggressive patient who challenges medical personal and especially conventional wisdom. Passive people are likely to be buried by their insecurities, by medical care bureaucracy and by accepting whats immediately available or convenient rather than what is best for their recovery and rehabilitation. You have to fight to discover the best information, the best hospital, rehab facility and medical expertise for your needs. You must be willing to take educated risks. However, Mr. Mandell also knows that you cant let an aggressive stance turn into adversarial relationships with those whose help and experience you are seeking. Make friends on this journey to well being, he advises. Dont turn people off. Another crucial piece of advice is the mantra one step at a time. People whose expectations are too ambitious (unrealistic?) are likely to be disappointed and fall into despair. They will lose heart and may never make progress. Set attainable goals and work hard to achieve each. With others, develop a plan that is consistent with your condition at the starting line so that you can reach the finish line of restored vitality and functionality. In 54 brief, zesty and often humorous chapters (plus four appendixes), the author creates the feeling of step-by-step conquest over the stroke or other debilitating condition from which you need to rebound. You need to make and keep your commitment to practical interim goal setting, he says. Writing in an almost breathless style, he underscores his points via strong section headings, outline technique, boldface emphasis and a kind of question-and answer-dialogue. Most important is his use of italicized passages that reveal what he was thinking at different stages of his own recovery and rehabilitation. He admits to and shares his doubts and dilemmas along the way. No one should think that anything less than tough-mindedness and hard work will bring the results you desire. No one should think there wont be setbacks. Mr. Mandell shows his readers how to become researchers. Finding networks of people and organizations with shared concerns and knowledge, finding sources that explain various kinds of medical practitioner credentials and rankings of hospitals specialty units (like stroke units) and finding special umbrella organizations such as NIH StrokeNet are necessities for you and your optimum recovery. The information in Stroke Victor seems endless. There is helpful guidance for and about caregivers, useful sections like Sex after Stroke, Integrative and Innovative Therapies and an enormously important how-to discussion about discovering and taking part in clinical trials of new medications and therapies. All these positive attributes of Stroke Victor do not quite disguise the fact that this book could benefit from careful, professional proofreading, however. Through his book, Mr. Mandell is a great coach on paper. He is also a coach a stroke coach in life. He is a fully committed stroke recovery research advocate and educator who has founded the Stroke Research Foundation. You can check it out at StrokeRF. org.

CALL TODAY TO RELIEVE THE PAIN Dr. Lynn Sarkela D.C.239-631-5393Meeting childrens needs right here at homeMost surveys reveal that health-care consumers prefer quality care close to home. Thats one reason why the NCH Pediatrics Department has been the go-to center for decades for the estimated 64,524 children under the age of 18 in Collier County. Each year, some 3,500 babies are born at the Birth Place on our North Naples campus. Some of those newborns need care in our new 18-bed Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Also in North Naples, the MacDonald SeaCAREium has eight progressive care beds, and coming soon is the Robert, Mariann and Megan MacDonald Pediatric Emergency Room. Our pediatrics department has steadily built its capabilities to accommodate changing community needs. Ten years ago, Dr. Deborah Lopez joined the team as a pediatric intensivist and hospitalist. A short time later, Dr. Jorge Perez brought in a team of neonatologists. We now have full-time pediatric intensivist coverage with the addition of Dr. Hassan Dbouk, along with six full-time neonatologists (one is on duty in the Birth Place around the clock). Beyond 26 pediatricians on staff who are led by Dr. Sobia Najm Masoud, we have two pediatric cardiologists, Drs. Tankut Onal and Levi Novero, who are can also care for adults who had anatomic abnormities as children and are now grown up; a pediatric neurologist, Dr. Ramzy Medaa, who cares for children with seizures and other problems; a pediatric urologist, Dr. Michael Carr, who was previously at the Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia and is the only pediatric urologist in Southwest Florida; four pediatric gastroenterologists, Drs. Mario Tano, Aymin Delgado (specializing in liver diseases), Yonathan Fuchs and Ofelia Marin; three pediatric pulmonologists, Drs. Kunjana Mavunda, Claudia Fernandez and Hassan Dbouk; a pediatric hematologist and oncologist, Dr. Daniela Egas Bejar; and 10 pediatric ER physicians led by Dr. Pia Myers. NCH has supplied the local community with school nurses and athletic trainers for almost 20 years. We also offer sedation services for children who need special procedures such as MRIs or CTs. Having the only local pediatric inpatient unit, the only pediatric ICU, pediatric ER, neonatal ICU, hospital obstetrical unit and all these pediatric subspecialists means Collier County families rarely need to leave home for their childrens health-care needs. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. allenWEISSallen.email@example.com The Terraces partners with Hope HospiceThe Terraces at Bonita Springs has partnered with Hope Hospice to provide end-of-life palliative care at the Terraces Renaissance health center.

My dogs have always been my companions. We go for walks, have meals at pet-friendly restaurants and travel together whenever possible. They sleep under my desk while I write, and sit on my lap on the sofa when Im reading or watching television. As far as I was concerned, that was a good life for them. I never had any interest in showing them in conformation. I thought agility or tracking might be fun, but never seriously pursued either one. I admired people who worked or competed with their dogs in the same way that I admire people who have climbed Everest or explored underwater caves, but I didnt expect to ever be one of them. It didnt seem truly necessary for their or my happiness. But like all dogs, mine have always been guided by their noses. Sometimes it seemed as if they were excessively devoted to examining all the scents they ran across on walks. So when a friend told me about the sport of nose work, I thought it would be fun to sign Harper up for the six-week class. Wed learn the basics, and then wed have a fun game we could play at home or anywhere else. Within weeks, I was bringing 13-yearold Gemma to class, too. When my husband got tired of being left home alone on Friday nights, he joined us as well. The next thing I knew, Harper had passed her first Odor Recognition Test, which qualified her to compete in a beginning-level nose-work trial. I couldnt wait. Watching Harper and then Gemma, and eventually Keeper discover a purpose to sniffing was a revelation. They knew when it was time to go to class. They knew exactly what they were there to do when it was their turn to search. They were so excited to tell us when they found the scent. It was two-way communication, and it was wonderful. Recently, I asked friends who also do sports with their dogs what they and their dogs get out of it. The appreciation of teamwork and communication and a deeper relationship came first, of course. The bond it creates between you and your dog is unlike anything you could develop with a human teammate, says Annick Loomis, who does nose work with her Brittany.Adam Conn does a number of sports with his Bernese mountain dogs. He enjoys the challenge of unlocking each dog.All five who Ive competed with have been so vastly different, despite four being the same breed and two being from the same lines. What about our dogs? Treats and praise aside, do they get anything out of it? Yes. For each dog, the reward is different. Some like being the center of attention or enjoy the challenge of solving a puzzle. Hina, a mixed-breed owned by Mary Wakabayashi, loves the thrill of the hunt that nose work develops. Melissa Duffy says sports and games make her dogs grin like nothing else. Harper? We have always been close, but she really blossomed when she discovered that she could tell me something and that I would understand. Three weeks ago, Harper and I competed in our second NW3 trial. Its the most difficult level, and we werent quite good enough to get a title. Yet. But at every class and every trial, I get better at reading her signals, and she gets better at delivering them. Most of all, Ive taken to heart the nose work motto: Trust your dog. Harper correctly identifies the location of a scent at a nose-work trial.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 16-22, 2015 NEWS A23 THE DIVA DIARIESLove, sparkle and merriment: What every wedding is made ofNothing captures a divas fancy more than a wedding. It combines all of my favorite things: l ove, spar kle and merriment. I adore weddings so much that one can max out the photo storage limit on my iPhone faster than you can say, I do. And because I get so excited about weddings, I can tend to overthink my outfit. For the wedding I attended this past Saturday, for example, I couldnt decide whether to wear my ivory feathery fascinator or not. Its a pretty fabulous fascinator, and I would never want to upstage the bride. But then I reminded myself, why fret? There was no bride. Scott and Rons wedding meant two gorgeous grooms in stunning tuxes. I could wear whatever I wanted! I ended up going with a simple cocktail dress and the fascinator for my first gay wedding. Of course, no one cared a bit what I was wearing (not even me). All eyes and hearts were focused on the grooms. Even before they became a couple, Scott Carpenter and Ron Kelly both loved the Baz Luhrmann film Moulin Rouge, so they chose it as the theme of their wedding: Paris, red and black velvet, poetry, music and romance. And since both grooms are involved with local theater (Scott is an actor, Ron is a lighting designer), there was even a script, a playbill and a standing ovation. As much as Id like to think Scott and Rons wedding was like any wedding Ive ever attended (because it was), it really wasnt. It was history. It was the first time Ive ever seen two people of the same sex who are madly in love, who have been partners for 15 years, who have desperately wanted to make their union legal, finally get to do just that. Scott and Ron sweetly gifted their guests darling little chocolates in the shape of the Eiffel Tower, but they would have done better with Kleenex, because there wasnt a dry eye in the house. And as if the ceremony didnt have us all boo-hooing enough, on a big screen they showed a video of the proposal. It was Christmas of last year, shortly after the state of Florida legally recognized same sex marriage. Scott had decided to propose to Ron during their annual holiday party; meanwhile, Ron had the exact same idea. A dual surprise Christmas engagement more Kleenex, stat! Halfway through the wedding, my mascara was in streaks and I was using my poor fascinator to blow my nose. The grooms didnt plan it, but it was extra icing on their wedding cake when, on June 26, the Supreme Court of the United States voted to make gay marriage a constitutional right in all states. Good thing Scott and Ron included that info in their ceremony so that those of us who were already sobbing messes could just go ahead and dab our tears with our hair. Did I mention that both grooms had best gals who gave the most lovely, moving toasts at the reception? At that point, I resorted to using the tablecloth to wipe away my tears. Ill never forget my first gay wedding even when, as Im certain will happen, a wedding becomes just a wedding, whether its two grooms, two brides or a bride and a groom. My friend Nykkie, who attended Ron and Scotts wedding with her 3-yearold daughter, Magnolia, said it best when we chatted after the ceremony: I asked Magnolia, Wasnt it a pretty wedding? Did you enjoy watching Ron and Scott get married? Her reply? I know, Mommy, they love each other SO much!As she grows up, Magnolia will shed only normal tears at all weddings.

Thats the idea behind personality tests or psychological profiles that business owners give themselves, their management team or other employees, often as a teambuilding exercise or sometimes as part of pre-employment screening. There are many tests available, based on common psychological theories and adapted by brands like DiSC and MyersBriggs (two of the most popular) to gauge how people tend to communicate in the workplace by dividing them into different behavioral categories.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 16-22, 2015 MONEY & INVESTINGWhy just one currency wouldnt be so greatTraveling in Europe really makes you appreciate all of the great things we take for granted here in the U.S. For example, when I use the restroom, I dont want to have to make a decision each time whether the contents of the bowl warrant a large or small flush. And it should be a human right that if you buy a soda at a restaurant for $5 that costs $.0001 cents to produce, it should come with free refills. And those refills should contain more than 2 cubes of ice. But what really drives me crazy is dealing in foreign currencies. That bottle of wine is 500 Krone? What does that even mean? Why do we even have multiple currencies any more and why do they matter? In an ideal world, we would have just a single currency. Having multiple forms of money is an impediment for trading between countries and is very inefficient. Yet there are more than 180 different currencies in the world. There are three primary reasons for this. The first is seigniorage. Seigniorage is the difference in the cost for a government to produce money versus what they can sell the money for. For example, if it costs a government $.10 to produce a $100 bill, the seigniorage is $99.90 per $100 bill that they produce. For some countries, especially developing countries, this can be an important source of revenue. Of course, if a government takes advantage of this, the result is extreme inflation. In 2008, analysts estimate that half of Zimbabwes governmental revenue came from seigniorage. The trade off was inflation of 24,000 percent as the government flooded the market with newly printed bills. Seigniorage is also beneficial to developed countries like the U.S. Although it is hard to measure, it is estimated that between $300 and $500 billion paper dollars are held outside of the U.S. These dollars are in such demand because they are readily accepted in almost every country in the world and are easily tradable into local money. These notes were produced at virtually no cost, yet the U.S. was able to sell the notes to foreign banks, governments, and other institutions at face value. So the U.S. government was able to essentially buy $300 billion worth of goods and services at almost no cost. Not a bad deal for us. The second benefit to a country for producing its own currency is the ability to manipulate exchange rates to benefit that nation. For example, for decades Japan has artificially depreciated the yen versus the dollar and euro. China has also played this game with the yuan. Both Asian countries accomplished this by selling their local currency in exchange for buying dollars and euros. This is the primary reason why both China and Japan own so many U.S. Treasury bonds it keeps all of the dollars it purchased in the form of these bonds. A low-valued currency is important to Japan and China because it powers their export-driven economies. For example, lets say today that Sony wanted to sell its PlayStation 4 for 20,000 yen and the exchange rate was 100 yen per dollar. It would cost an American consumer $200 to purchase the game system. If tomorrow the yen fell to 200 yen per dollar, all of a sudden the same American consumer could buy the game system for $100 and yet Sony would sill be making 20,000 yen per Playstation sold. That is the power of exchange rates. And it plays a huge role in any company that buys or sells products outside of its home nation. In fact, many U.S. multinational companies this past quarter put the blame on earnings misses on the fact that U.S. dollar was so strong versus almost every other currency in the world. This made U.S. companies less competitive, leading to sales losses to global competitors. So if a weak currency is so great, why has the U.S. pursued a strong dollar policy for decades? It is because low currencies are a double-edged sword. They help exporters but hurt importers. A weak dollar makes everything we purchase abroad more expensive. This includes not only manufactured goods like cars and cellphones but also resources like oil and food. A weak currency typically goes hand in hand with high inflation, which can be very damaging to an economy. And because the U.S. is a consumer driven economy, it has been helpful to us to keep the dollar strong and prices low. The final benefit for a country to have its own currency is that it is a safety valve when it gets into trouble with debt. This is one of the primary reasons why some analysts believe Greece will be better off if it exits the euro and brings back the drachma. If a country has a massive debt burden that it cannot pay off with its existing reserves, it has two options. First, it can default. Second, the country can start up its printing presses and simply start printing money. The problem in Greeces situation is that it gave up its presses when it joined the Euro. A country with its own currency wouldnt have this impediment. So, it seems like a world currency will not be in our immediate future. The benefits to a country for having its own money almost always outweigh the problems it causes. But does each country really need to have its own electrical outlet configuration too?

We primarily use the DiSC, although Im also certified in Myers-Briggs, but I find that DiSC seems to be a little bit faster so it seems to be the preference among people. Armed with this information and insight about themselves and other people, the thinking goes, co-workers do a better job of communicating. Clashes and misunderstandings that might gum up productivity, say between a harddriving, outgoing CEO who just wants to get things done and an introverted, methodical accountant intent on sifting through every detail, can be diffused. I use (DiSC) for all my clients as a foundation to better understand their team, to understand how they can work more effectively together, said Lee Knapp of Knapp Consultants, a business consultant, sales trainer and motivational speaker based in Fort Myers. Its really fun. Ms. Knapp also points out that there is no right or wrong answer on such personality tests. This is all about how we naturally tend to communicate, thats it. For instance, are you more inclined to exhibit Dominance or Influence, Steadiness or Conscientiousness (DiSC) when you interact with people? And for each, to what degree? To find out, DiSC participants are presented with a series of single adjectives or statements such as people think of me as a really good listener or I can be pretty forceful with my opinions and asked to check a bubble that most corresponds with how they feel about that. Do you strongly agree, agree, feel neutral, disagree, or strongly disagree? DiSC profiles cost about $36 to $90 per person. The price includes a report more than 20 pages long that analyzes your behavioral tendencies. It includes information about how you tend to perform under stress and suggestions for how to communicate with people of different styles. Diana Willis, a Jasons Deli franchise owner since 2000, with five locations throughout Southwest Florida, began using the DiSC profile about a year ago and has been pleased with the results. She used the tests to help match up management teams, during the training process for new employees and in one instance to help decide between two job candidates. Its amazing how our strong leaders, people who have been in management more than a decade, really embraced what was said about them as very true. It helps us communicate better, which is fundamentally the basis for how we get things done. Sometimes we get frustrated why we cant reach certain people and we dont realize they dont hear it in the same way, Ms. Willis said; at the same time, the diversity in styles is an asset. We need those different dynamics in order to run a successful business. Kimberly Hansen has taken and administers DiSC and Myers-Briggs, among other tests, and runs KHR Solutions, a human resources consulting firm based in Southwest Florida. Her own results spoke to some things she had already learned about herself through experience. Often cheerful and bubbly, I know when I get stressed I lose all of my niceties, she said, tending to skip the small talk and get straight to business. Had I done these (tests) years ago I could have saved myself a little bit of heartache in terms of hurting other peoples feelings. I had to learn that the hard way. Her DiSC results scored her as high I (for influence), or according to DiSCs website someone who places emphasis on influencing or persuading others, the most general of many other characteristics. That also indicates she likes making decisions, giving recommendations and guidance; shes happy being a consultant but probably wouldnt fit in as an employee in a big human resources department. Knowing that about myself is pretty cool, she said. In consulting, I can give the guidance, I can give the recommendations, which suits my personality. On the test, she was also scored as a medium C (for conscientiousness), or a person who places emphasis on quality and accuracy. Meanwhile, her accountant is likely a high C, more oriented toward details and accuracy. If Im talking to the accountant I have to step up my game, she said. I have to focus on the details and take some of the pleasantries out of it. DiSC scores may alter depending on your mood or situation, and there are only four main categories. Myers-Briggs on the other hand places participants into 16 separate categories for a more nuanced reading of personality traits, although businesses sometimes prefer DiSCs simplicity and focus on communications in the workplace, test administrators said. Ms. Peterson at Markham Norton said the test usually takes about 15 minutes, unless they totally overthink it, in which case I already know theyre a very high C.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Stocks in RetirementMany people assume that stocks are only for the young, and bonds are best for when youre older. Theyre wrong, though, because theres a good case for retirees maintaining some stock holdings. Its true that you should invest only long-term dollars in the stock market, as it can fall sharply and remain down for one or more years. But you dont necessarily become a short-term investor at retirement. If you retire at age 65, you may well live 30 more years. It would be a shame to be entirely out of the stock market during all that time. After all, you wont need to access all of your nest egg the moment you retire. Youll tap a little at first, and more the next year, and so on. Some of it will remain invested for 10 or 20 or more years. As a retiree, youll want your nest egg to grow, if possible, and stocks are one of the best tools for that. Bonds have their place, offering fixed income, but according to research by business professor Jeremy Siegel, stocks have outperformed bonds 78 percent of the time over all 10-year periods between 1871 and 2012, 96 percent of the time over all 20-year periods and 99 percent of the time over all 30-year periods! Growth is important because of inflation, which will shrink the purchasing power of your savings over time. Retiring with $500,000 in the bank might seem terrific, but if inflation averages 3 percent annually over the next 25 years, that egg will only have the buying power of $233,500 in todays dollars. A growing nest egg can offset the damage wreaked by inflation. Retirees also typically require income from their investments during their nonworking years. Dividend-paying stocks can be powerful income generators. A stock offering a 3 percent yield may shield your shares from inflation with its dividend alone. Stock price appreciation will be icing on the cake. Better still, healthy and growing companies often increase dividends regularly.

Just three years later, my next-door neighbor bought his house, quite comparable to mine, for a third of what I paid. Im not going anywhere soon. J.K., Ferguson, MissouriThe Fool Responds: Ouch. Many people avoid stocks, thinking theyre too volatile, and stick with real estate instead, not realizing how volatile home values can be, too.Nobel Prize-winning economist Robert Shiller has long studied the housing market, with his data showing housing prices growing at a compound annual rate of just 0.3 percent over the past century (adjusted for inflation), while the S&P 500 has averaged roughly 6.5 percent (also inflation-adjusted). And thats just an average. If you were unlucky and bought in the wrong place at the wrong time, youd have fared worse. Indeed, according to a recent report from Zillow.com, since the mortgage crisis of a few years ago, more than 4 million U.S. homeowners owed the bank at least 20 percent more than their homes were worth. Meanwhile, you cant liquidate a home quickly, and you cant sell off part of your home in order to generate some needed funds. If you want to buy a home in order to have a nice place to live, go right ahead. Just dont think of your home as a great investment. Homeownership can give you security and mortgage-interest deductions, but youll also face property taxes and repair and maintenance costs. Placing Chips on MicronShares of Americas biggest memory chip maker, Micron Technology (Nasdaq: MU), have dropped by more than 40 percent over the past year, and are worth considering.Micron, recently sporting a market value near $21 billion, has been hurt by a weak PC market, with desktop and laptop computers losing ground to smartphones and tablets. Indeed, in its latest quarter, the company posted a 3 percent yearover-year drop in revenue and a big 39 percent drop in earnings. All is not lost, though, as Micron is moving away from low-end chips and into higher-margin products. Its developing chips for the mobile market and for servers, which remain in demand due in part to the growth of cloud computing. Meanwhile, Microns 2013 acquisition of Japan-based rival Elpida for $2.5 billion has played out well, giving the company valuable economies of scale and a major share of mobile DRAM chips. The purchase boosted Microns memory market share to No. 2 in the world; even better, the company instantly gained a 50 percent boost in total memory capacity for about a third of the cost of building its own new facilities around the globe and training new workers. The chip business is cyclical, and Micron isnt for the faint of heart, but with recent and forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios near 7, well below the stocks five-year average of 15, Microns shares are appealingly priced.

D.E., Venice, FloridaAThe Dow Jones Industrial Average (the Dow) is the most famous one, containing 30 American titans, such as Boeing, Disney, General Electric, Coca-Cola, Nike, Visa and Wal-Mart. The Standard & Poors 500 is another large-cap index, featuring 500 of Americas leading companies. Its components account for about 80 percent of the total market value of the U.S. stock market. The Dow and the S&P 500 are often viewed as proxies for the overall U.S. economy.Other major indexes include the Russell 3000 Index, encompassing roughly 3,000 of the largest U.S. companies based on market capitalization (current share price multiplied by number of shares outstanding). Together, these companies make up about 98 percent of the U.S. markets value. The top smallcap company index is the Russell 2000, a subset of the Russell 3000 made up of about 2,000 of the smallest companies in the Russell 3000. The Dow Jones Wilshire 5000 is even broader, including almost every publicly traded U.S. company. For broad international coverage, the Vanguard Total International Stock Index represents almost all of the non-U.S. world stock market.There are indexes for many broad or narrow international regions, such as China or Latin America.

I thought it would be kind of a neat follow up (to the iconic bands final shows) to do that at The Norris Center, says promoter Richard Van der neer. Im looking forward to creating a little summer excitement in Naples. Mr. Van der neer says he became acquainted with the tribute band years ago. When he organized farm parties at a friends campground in Ochopee, Crazy Fingers would rock on while campers circled a bonfire into the night, groovin to the bands renditions of Casey Jones, Sugar Magnolia, Friend of the Devil, Sugaree and so many more. For the upcoming concert at The Norris Center, the promoter has lined up vendors to sell tie-dye supplies and hula-hoops. He also hopes to involve a few community organizations in the evening.Deadheads grateful to catch tribute band in Naples BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.com SEE GRATEFUL, C8
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 16-22, 2015 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS Hello from Bitter Island I have a friend who recently remarried. Its a second marriage for both him and his new wife. They are in their mid30s, and they each have young children. They are ecstatically in l ove, and I am thrilled for them. But not thrilled enough, it seems. Its like people arent happy for us, my friend complained to me. No one wants to talk about the wedding. I tried to explain the truth to him as gently as I could: Its hard for friends and family to muster the same excitement a second time around. When all the feting of the first wedding took place the endless showers and toasts, the parties and gifts it was with the expectation that the marriage would last. It was easy to be genuine in our happiness then, because we all anticipated that the words spoken at the ceremony til death do us part and all that were sincere. But a second marriage proves we were wrong. It mocks all the hopes we placed in the first one. So hell have to forgive us if we cant generate that same enthusiasm again. My friend, though, doesnt see it that way. You know why people arent happy for us? he told me one night on the phone. Because everybody else is unhappy. What does that mean? I asked. Its as if we were all on this bitter island together, the single people and the couples in crappy relationships, but then we meaning his new bride and himself managed to escape while everyone else stayed. I thought about it for a minute. Are you including me on that island? I asked him. Well, you are, arent you? Am I? Its true that Im not in a relationship, but I have a lovely life. Sometimes I like to complain about my non-relationship status, but I always figured that if I were truly upset about it, I would do something to change it. Still, what my friend said stayed with me over the next several days. Was I living on Bitter Island and I didnt even realize it? Maybe hes right and not just about me, but about our collective group of friends. Its impossible to be happy for other people when were not happy ourselves. Perhaps we really are trapped on an island of dissatisfaction, the singles and unhappily marrieds, and the great wave of post-children divorces that takes place in our 30s and early 40s is on its way. My friend just happened to be the first. What if, I thought, instead of being angry at him for his annoyingly smug comments, I followed his lead? Rather than defending my territory on Bitter Island, I should be finding an escape route. Building a raft, so to speak. They say we should never make important decisions under duress, but my friend had me so worked up that I couldnt have stopped myself if I tried. Late at night, after tossing and turning, I got out of bed, sat down at my computer and signed up for eHarmony. If Im going to make it off this island, I cant do it alone.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 16-22, 2015 Willens in The Atlantic magazine noted that only two Broadway plays had been written by women. And both were dead.) An October 2014 American Theatre article quotes Joy Meads, literary associate of the Los Angeles-based Center Theater Group, as saying the gender disparity springs not from meritocracy but from historical prejudice and subconscious bias. Women playwrights are also woefully under-represented regionally. Honestly, I hadnt thought about it before, Mr. Taylor says. So he did his own research and looked at what venues in Fort Myers, Sanibel, Cape Coral and Naples had produced over the past few years. He was surprised to learn that less than 20 percent of the plays produced locally had been written by women. It hit me, he says. Theres not general parity when it comes to play production and playwrights. I thought this would be a good time to make up for some of that. Hence the upcoming season of plays written only by women. (The only possible exception will be the production of the annual New Play Contest winner.) Mr. Taylor says when he told his wife, actress Lauren Drexler, what he was planning to do she replied, Its about time. Its just taken for granted when a venue produces a season and all the playwrights are male, he says. But people are talking about (the disparity) now, about how female playwrights are getting the short end of the stick. So were just doing our part to make up for it. The thing to emphasize, he says, is that just because the season is all female playwrights doesnt mean its a chick-flick season. Some very powerful, great pieces of theater that are going to be produced. It is not a chick-flick season, he repeats. Were talking about gifted women, talented women, says Tera Nicole Smith, who works the box office for Theatre Conspiracy and has also performed in and stagemanaged shows for the company. There are shows that everybody will enjoy. These are not just for women. Some of the scripts, she says, are just fall-down funny, while others are poignant and beautiful.The seasonMr. Taylor says his goal, as it is for every season, was to present a diverse selection of plays. I always try to bring a wide variety of plays to a season, he says, so youre not getting what youve already seen a thousand times. Initially, he wanted to present the history of plays written by women, starting with one from the 1600s by Aphra Behn. But then he realized the cast requirements for such a season would be too large. No way could I tackle a show with 15 or more characters in it, he says. So I dropped that idea and then decided, Lets start with the 20th century, to keep the casts more manageable. He would have opened with the Pulitzer Prize-winning Harvey, written by Mary Chase, but was unable to obtain the rights. (A movie version of the play, starring Jimmy Stewart, was made in 1950.) So the seasons opener became Lillian Hellmans Toys in the Attic. Running Oct. 2-18, its about two sisters whose younger brother always has a get-richquick scheme, one that inevitably falls through. Then one day he shows up with a large sum of money, and people are trying to figure out exactly where he got it, Mr. Taylor says. Stephanie Davis (Florida Weekly Diva Diaries columnist) is directing Toys in the Attic and has cast Rachel Burttrum and Karen Goldberg to star as the sisters. The next play, Mr. Burns, a PostElectric Play by Anne Washburn, runs Nov. 20-Dec. 12. This dark comedy takes place after the collapse of civilization, so its set in the future a little bit, Mr. Taylor says, explaining that its called a post-electric play because its set in a time where there is no more electricity. You have this group of survivors around a campfire, trying to recall a Simpsons episode. Its one of the more famous ones, a take-off of Cape Fear, the movie, where Sideshow Bob is trying to kill Bart. Theyre talking about it, and you get the backstory of where civilization is at that time, why theres no electricity, etc. Act II is set seven years in the future, when roving theatrical groups go around performing Simpsons episodes. And then Act III, set 75 years later, is a musical about The Simpsons. Its a neat show (about) how pop culture becomes the stuff of myths and legend as time goes past, he says. Rachael Endrizzi will direct this production. The New Year opens with Kayak by Jordan Hall, running Jan. 7-23. A winner of the Samuel French Canadian playwriting contest, it will star Ms. Drexler as a mother who borrows her sons kayak and finds herself floating along a stretch of water. The sons girlfriend is an environmental activist who holds views the mother disagrees with. Kayak will be performed in the round, and the Mariner Robotics Club from Mariner High School will create a robot that will pull the kayak along, so as the actress paddles throughout the play, the kayak will move accordingly. Steven Hooper will direct. Up next is The Bluest Eye by Lydia Diamond, an adaptation of Toni Morrisons novel by the same name about a girl who despises her dark skin and prays for blue eys, running Feb. 5-20. Were getting a great cast together for this, Mr. Taylor says. Its going to be amazing. Its part of our effort to produce plays for minority artists geared toward a minority audience, just like we did last year with for colored girls As far as I can tell, were the only ones in Southwest Florida now continually producing shows for minority actors. Sonya McCarter will direct The Bluest Eye for Theatre Conspiracy. Jennifer Haleys The Nether, which Mr. Taylor describes as a sci-fi thriller about the consequences of making dreams into reality, runs March 4-19 and will be directed by Rick Sebastian. You have the Nether, which is like the Internet, but theres a special part of it where people can go and live out their wildest dreams, no matter what, Mr. Taylor says. Even though it might be murder or rape or any type of crime, you can go into this online area and do it, away from the law. The play begins with a cyber detective interrogating the man who created this area where law cannot go. A winner of the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, The Nether has played at Londons West End and, earlier this year, at the Lucille Lortel Theatre in New York City. May 6-21 is reserved for the winner of Theatre Conspiracys annual New Play Contest. It is, of course, impossible to predict the gender of the playwright in this case. The season will close with The Amish Project, Jessica Dickeys one-woman show that is a fictional account of the 2006 Nickel Mines Schoolhouse shooting in an Amish community in Lancaster County, Pa. Its the story of their forgiveness, Mr. Taylor says about the show that will star Ms. Miller playing various characters, including some of the children who were victims of the shooting, the wife of the shooter, an Amish historian and researcher and the shooter himself. Its an extraordinary piece, Mr. Taylor says. The dates for this show are TBA. In summing up the coming season for Theatre Conspiracy, Ms. Miller says, This is not a season about women. Its a season by women, and I think thats (great). Mr. Taylor concludes: These are amazing pieces of theater. Theyre engaging, theyre funny, theyre sad. Its just good writing.

FLORIDA WRITERSUndercover vigilantes and lovers yield killer thriller romance Exit Strategy by Lena Diaz. Avon Books. 384 pages. Mass market paperback, $5.99. The premise of Lena Diazs new romantic thriller is something Ive come across before: After the U.S. governments intelligence agencies have pushed up against the legal limits of what that can do, secret and unofficial organizations emerge to do the most heinous dirty work necessary to keep our enemies (internal and external) in check. EXIT Inc. has the cover name Extreme International Tours Incorporated. Indeed, the tour company actually functions like others in the high-risk adventure tour business. Under the cover, however, it is a paramilitary force with few restraints and shaky accountability. Worse yet, many of its leaders and highly trained enforcers are in it for their own personal agendas. It is a rogue group that has, paradoxically, used the term rogue for those among them who are questioning assignments and methods that seem unjustifiable. One such questioner is Mason Hunt. Charged with eliminating a target named Sabrina Hightower, supposedly a threat to national security, Mason finds this woman is entirely innocent and herself a victim. Could Masons assignment be a huge mistake, or is EXIT a corrupt organization? Soon enough, given Masons enormous attraction to this spunky, attractive young woman, as well as his moral sense of the situation, he becomes her protector. The novel develops along these two related lines. Mason and a few others fight to expose and bring down the corrupt EXIT agents. This story line involves detailed plans, combat prowess and courage. The companion story is the unsteady growth of a loving, trusting and passionate relationship between Mason and Sabrina. The stories are bound together, of course, and their combined action moves across the rugged North Carolina landscape near Asheville. Both story lines proceed with progress and setbacks in suspenseful tension. Sabrina, a diminutive, curvy powerhouse, is a force to be reckoned with on many levels. She is out to discover how to bring EXIT to justice for the faulty zip-line that caused her parents deaths on their anniversary trip a trip Sabrina had given them in an attempt to reconnect. Now, as she makes waves, Sabina has become a target of EXIT enforcers. She is a fighter, a woman who can expertly handle a gun, and she expects to be treated as an equal by other capable individuals. Mason, who tries to deny his attraction to her, is overly solicitous. His goal of protecting her and aiding her cause is handled in a way that seems to deny her abilities and undermine her independent spirit. At bottom, he feels unworthy of her. A man with horrific flashbacks triggered by instances of confinement or constraint, he has nightmares from this military past that cause him to hallucinate threats and strike back to kill the perceived enemy. On two occasions, his PTSD rage almost leads him to injure Sabrina. He fears that he will injure her or worse. How Mason and Sabrina negotiate their alternating currents of caution and desire, shared perspectives and acute differences, is a powerful magnet for reader interest. The author describes these pulses with skill, and the hot lovemaking that explodes along with the constant danger makes for many stimulating scenes. Ms. Diaz surrounds her romance figures with a supporting cast of welldrawn characters, the most important being the enigmatic EXIT CEO named Cyprian Cardenas. Is she behind the fake EXIT orders? Others named Ace, Stryker, Bishop, Buchanan and Ramsey are loaded with distinguishing quirks. Lined up behind either Cyprian or Mason, they move across the Carolina game board like pieces in the final match of a chess tournament. Will this dynamic duo foil the EXIT machine? Well, my friends, why dont you read it and find out?About the authorNow a Jacksonville resident, Lena Diaz has proved her ability to win an audience through her success in Avons digital-first imprint, Avon Impulse, with the four-title Deadly Games Thriller series. Says an Avon publicist, Lenas original e-books have been so popular on an international level that weve decided to publish her in print for the very first time. Ms. Diaz has been a Romance Writers of American Golden Heart finalist and a winner of the Daphne du Maurier award for excellence in mystery and suspense.

We have a doctor and a surgeon who are going to come and some bikers, he says. It covers a wide spectrum of the population. Deadheads are notorious for being a particularly fervent fan base. In the 1970s, a group of fans started travelling with the Grateful Dead to see strings of shows at a time, creating their own subculture, slang and concert customs. The community is largely credited for filling arenas nightly and keeping the band on the road well into the 1990s. Crazy Fingers keyboardist Josh Foster has noticed that over the last 25 years, new fans keep swapping out while the loyalists stay the same. In addition to the older loyalists, he says, We have people that come out who might be younger, then they grow up and go to college and we dont see them, but a new batch comes in, he says. It seems like our fans stay the same age and we keep getting older. In true Deadhead fashion, many of them travel around South Florida to catch Crazy Fingers shows and are likely to be at The Norris Center next weekend. The Broward County-based band formed in 1990 and has a nationwide reputation as being one of the premiere Grateful Dead tribute bands. In addition to playing the Deads entire repertoire, Crazy Fingers also plays classic rock numbers by Bob Dylan, The Allman Brothers and others. Theyve shared the stage with The Band, Ziggy Marley, the Neville Brothers, Melvin Seals, JGB and many others while also releasing two original albums, Come On and Dance and Strange Life. To combat possible boredom from playing Grateful Dead tunes for 20 years, Mr. Foster says rotating songs each night and finding new interpretations of old songs keeps the material fresh for band members. I love the freedom that we have in it and the fact that our fans are welcoming to that, he says. Were constantly looking for new things within the music and trying to have a conversation with each other in the band. It doesnt get old. Playing the Grateful Dead repertoire is a little like jazz music, he adds, because the point is to play songs differently each night. The Grateful Dead seems to have a universal draw for people young and old. Zita Prutos, a 19-year-old Naples native who studies at Vanderbilt University, went to one of the bands anniversary shows at Soldier Field earlier this month. Because her parents are fans, she says, shes been listening to the Dead her entire life and has been a serious fan herself since she was 14. The crowd was great and really into it, Ms. Prutos says about the Chicago concert. No one was a casual fan. There were a lot of people aged 15 to 30 who were really psyched since they had GRATEFULFrom page 1 Grateful Jam in the Park>> What: Crazy Fingers, a Grateful Dead tribute band >> When: 5-9:30 p.m. Saturday, July 25 >> Where: The Norris Center, Naples >> Tickets: $35, limited to 200 people >> Info: Gratefuljamnaples on Facebook

Its a paraphrase of an Alice Roosevelt Longworth quote, who had embroidered on a pillow: If you cant say something good about someone, sit right here by me. Its a line worthy of Dorothy Parker (who its often attributed to). But Ms. Mengers gives the right credit, and then proceeds to dish for the next 80 minutes or so as she nibbles chocolates, smokes, tokes and drinks. And her gossip is better than most of todays tabloid fodder. Ms. Mengers was a Hollywood talent agent in the 0s and s, a time when a woman in the field was a rarity especially one so successful. She was a super agent, with a list of clients including Barbra Streisand, Faye Dunaway, Burt Reynolds, Ali McGraw, Gene Hackman, Cher, Candice Bergen, Ryan ONeal, Nick Nolte, Mike Nichols, Gore Vidal, Mick Jagger, Bob Fosse, Michael Caine, Cybill Shepherd, Rod Steiger and Peter Bogdanovich. Her very first client? Julie Harris. Not shabby. Not shabby at all. Ms. Mengers was a talent agent in a time when performers actually had talent and were known for their craft, not just for being famous. Ill Eat You Last: A Chat with Sue Mengers opens with Ms. Mengers dressed in a blue caftan, seated on her tufted sofa in her understated but sophisticated Beverly Hills home. She looks out at the audience. Im not getting up, she informs them. And she doesnt. Like a queen of Hollywood, she sits enthroned on her sofa, holding forth, telling tales and giving advice. heres the truth of agenting, she says. You are the public face of the client. Youre representing them, literally and figuratively. A great agent is a great chameleon: You have to be the clients mirror. Julie Harris, she shares, taught her a lesson Ive never forgotten: You have to speak to the artists in their language, not yours. Ms. Harris, she quickly learned, was much more interested in poetry than percentages. Bonnie Knapp, whos performed in various productions at the Sugden Community Theatre in Naples and was in the Broadway Palm Theatres production of Bill W. and Dr. Bob, plays the bold and brassy, foul-mouthed Ms. Mengers. She gets a lot of laugh with her lines, most of which are so off-color and insulting they cant be printed here. This is definitely a show for mature audiences; Ms. Mengers cracks wise and turns the air blue. You get the feeling that, seated at a bar with a sailor, she could more than hold her own, matching him drink-for-drink, storyfor-story, curse-for-curse. Shes just been fired by Ms. Streisand. Or rather, by the stars lawyers, her microstate of serious Jews who joined arms and bottle-danced their way to the speaker-phone and pressed my button, as Ms. Mengers puts it. That sets her off on a tangent about how speaker-phones lack intimacy, and how she once had a car phone the size of a dismembered babys torso. If these comments horrify you, this is not the show for you. If they make you laugh, you should buy a ticket immediately to see this clever show. Ms. Mengers is expecting a call from Ms. Streisand herself. (Though its not mentioned in the show, the two were so close that Ms. Streisand was the maid of honor at Ms. Mengers wedding.) Its the eve of one of Ms. Mengers famous Hollywood parties. Her advice on how to have a successful dinner party: Only invite movie stars. All my guests have to be famous, she says. Honey, my own mother couldnt get in if she were standing outside in the rain. While shes waiting for Ms. Streisand to call, she talks to the audience. Ms. Knapp is at her best in showing Ms. Mengers softer, vulnerable side, as she describes how her family fled Hitlers Germany and how she learned English by watching movies in the Bronx. (Thats why I still talk like a gum-cracking Warner Brothers secondlead, she says.) Though its only for a couple of seconds at a time, Ms. Knapp cleverly talks like each actress her character names (her Rosalind Russell is especially on target). When she mentions that her father killed himself, she adds: He killed himself in a Times Square hotel room, which seems redundant. For the course of the evening, were taken through Ms. Mengers history and her ascent as a talent agent. You want to be a thing? Make yourself that thing, she says. And we see exactly how she created herself into this larger-than-life persona. She has stories galore, about trying to sign Sissy Spacek, about getting Gene Hackman his famous role in French Connection and about getting Faye Dunaway hers in Chinatown. Its all a game to Ms. Mengers, but a game she loves dearly. You get the feeling that things arent going so well for her now (the play is set in 1981), and that losing Ms. Streisand as a client is a big blow. But Ms. Mengers is a survivor. John Logan who wrote Red, about painter Mark Rothko penned this one-woman show that bristles with attitude, gossip and humor. You might not have heard of Sue Mengers, but youll definitely know her after seeing this show. Director Ken Bryant has created one of the most polished sets Ive seen at the Lab Theater. Hanging over Ms. Mengers sofa is Picassos Les Demoissells dAvignon. Like these five Cubist nudes, Ms. Mengers, too, is a fierce, fragmented woman with multiple facets and sharp edges. And maybe, too, like them, a bit of a whore. But then, as shed probably say, in Hollywood, who isnt? Sue Mengers is Ethel Merman, Sophie Tucker and Bella Abzug, all mixed together. Think Patti LuPone, after some poor fool has once again let his cellphone ring during her performance. Opening night was wildly entertaining, if poorly attended. I only wish Ms. Knapp had played Ms. Mengers even bigger. She could go much, much bigger with this character and dance on the edge of outrageousness. Bette Middler played this role on Broadway, and though I didnt see her performance, I couldnt help but think of her during the show. Ms. Knapp needs to own this character completely and wipe away any thought of anyone else. A bigger, more responsive audience would certainly help, and this show deserves to be seen by anyone who loves old movies and movie stars, or who just thrives on catty gossip. Kathy Griffin? Sue Mengers wouldve eaten her as an appetizer. The shows ending also seems a little uncertain; the audience applauded at multiple times, thinking it was the end, but it wasnt. (Though its also possible they were eager to applaud Ms. Knapp for her engaging performance.) Ms. Mengers, who loved movies so much, once considered becoming an actress. But then she reasoned: Why be a king when you could be a kingmaker? Ill Eat You Last demonstrates that Sue Mengers was the undeniable queen of kingmakers. l s n m p nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com >> What: Ill Eat You Last: A Chat with Sue Mengers >> Who: Laboratory Theater of Florida >> When: Through July 25 >> Where: 1634 Woodford Ave., Fort Myers >> Cost: $22 ($12 for students) at the door; $20 adults ($10 students) online >> Info: 218-0481 or laboratorytheater orida. com COURTESY PHOTOBonnie Knapp plays Sue Mengers in Ill Eat You Last: A Chat with Sue Mengers at the Laboratory Theater.

True, most of your co-workers might not like the delay, but as before, they might appreciate what follows from it. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You revel in golden opportunities this week. One cautionary note, though: Be careful to separate the gold from the glitter before you make a choice. Someone you trust can help. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Marriage is important this week, as are other partnerships. Dont let yourself be overwhelmed by sentiment. Instead, try to steer a path between emotion and common sense. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Dealing with someone who has let you down is never easy. But the sooner youre able to clear up this problem, the sooner other problems can be successfully handled. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A friend who is willing to bend the rules to gain an advantage for both of you is no friend. Reject the offer and stay on your usual straight and narrow path. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) After all the effort youve been putting in both on the job and for friends and family, its a good time to indulge your own needs. The weekend could bring a pleasant surprise. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You might want to do something new this weekend. Close your eyes and imagine what it could be, and then do it, or come up with the closest practical alternative. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Your good deeds bring you the appreciation you so well deserve. But, once again, be careful of those who might want to exploit your generous nature for their own purposes. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Trolling for compliments isnt necessary. You earned them, and youll get them. Concentrate this week on moving ahead into the next phase of your program. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A bit of Arian contrariness could be keeping you from getting all the facts. Turn it off, and tune in to what you need to hear. It could make all the difference this week. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Getting an answer to a vital question involving financial matters might take longer than youd expected. A new factor might have to be dealt with before anything can move forward. Be patient. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Use your good sense to see what might really be driving a colleagues workplace agenda. What you learn could lead to a new way of handling some old problems. BORN THIS WEEK: Meeting new people usually means youre making new friends. People want to be reflected in your shining light. PUZZLES

Consider this deal where youre declarer at five clubs. West leads the king of spades, and the question is how to play the hand. Lets say you win the spade with the ace, play the king of trumps and then lead a low diamond from dummy. You plan to play the ten from your hand, but, unfortunately, East produces the jack, which you win with the king. You next lead a diamond to the ace and play a third round of diamonds, hoping West will have to win the trick, which would ensure the contract. But East takes the third diamond with the queen and returns a heart, and down you go. You could say tha t the outcome was unlucky, but, even so, you should be willing to shoulder a goodly portion of the blame. You could have adopted a different line of play that would have significantly increased your chances of making the contract. Although its certainly not the sort of thing you see every day, the correct play is not to take Wests king of spades with the ace at trick one! Instead, you let him hold the trick, after which there is nothing he can do to stop you. Lets say West leads another spade at trick two. You win with the ace and discard a diamond from your hand. Then, after cashing the ace of trumps, you lead the K-A of diamonds and ruff a diamond. This establishes dummys 7-6 of diamonds, on which you can later discard the K-9 of hearts, and you finish with an overtrick. It is true that ducking the opening spade lead costs you a trick you didnt have to lose, but you get the trick back because you no longer have to lose a diamond. More importantly, you gain control of the diamonds and can establish them without running the risk that East will be able to win the third round of the suit.

FILM CAPSULESThe Gallows (Reese Mishler, Pfeifer Brown, Ryan Shoos) Teenagers get more than they bargain for when they go to their high school late at night and attempt to destroy the set for a play scheduled to debut the following day. This is more found footage horror nonsense, made worse by the fact that the characters are unlikeable. Rated R.Infinitely Polar Bear (Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana, Imogene Wolodarsky) A manic depressive father (Mr. Ruffalo) cares for his two daughters (Ms. Wolodarsky and Ashley Aufderheide) near Boston while his wife/their mother (Ms. Saldana) attends graduate school in New York City. Mr. Ruffalo gives a fantastic performance in this wonderful drama, based in part on writer/director Maya Forbes father. Rated R.Amy (Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Tony Bennett) This documentary about singer/ songwriter Amy Winehouse, who died of alcohol poisoning in July 2011, is a sad story of addiction and poor decisions. You feel bad for Ms. Winehouses affliction, but the movie doesnt provide much reason to see it for anyone whos not already a fan. Rated R.Terminator: Genisys (Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Arnold Schwarzenegger) John Connor (Mr. Clarke) sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back in time to protect Johns mother (Ms. Clarke). This is not just a standard redo of James Camerons The Terminator (1984). Although the story is quite clever, the action is disappointingly underwhelming. Rated PG-13.Magic Mike XXL (Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Jada Pinkett Smith) Three years after Mike (Mr. Tatum) leaves the stripper life behind, he reunites with his boys for one last show at a stripper convention in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Its uneven but ultimately satisfying in terms of showmanship and story. Rated R.The Overnight (Adam Scott, Taylor Schilling, Jason Schwartzman) New to Los Angeles, Alex (Mr. Scott) and Emily (Ms. Schilling) accept a dinner invitation from bohemian Kurt (Mr. Schwartzman), not realizing the awkwardness that lies ahead. Its an interesting idea, but the inability to balance comedy and drama inhibits the film from strongly making its points. Rated R.Ted 2 (Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, voice of Seth MacFarlane) Ted (Mr. MacFarlane) and Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth) are married and want to adopt, but need a lawyer (Ms. Seyfried) to prove Ted is a real person before they can do so. This sequel to the 2012 hit is funnier and a better overall movie than its predecessor, which is saying something. Rated R.Max (Robbie Amell, Lauren Graham, Thomas Haden Church) A Texas family welcomes in the Belgian Malinois dog that accompanied their now-deceased Marine Corps son in Afghanistan, but people around the family cause trouble. Sappy and sentimental, it belongs on the Hallmark Channel, not the big screen. Rated PG.

NoTrainwreck is Amy Schumers shot at the big time. The comedienne, whose show Inside Amy Schumer airs on Comedy Central, has proven herself whip smart and subversive, unafraid to use humor to expose honesties about women and society that others often shush under the rug. As the writer and star of Trainwreck, the pressure is squarely on her to deliver. So does she? Sort of. Its a decent movie, not great. Perhaps even good if youre really in the mood for a vulgar, female-driven romantic comedy. On her TV show, Ms. Schumer is unrestrained and topical due to the flexibility of the sketch format, but here shes forced to isolate her focus on a single storyline and as a result, the humor occasionally feels desperate. For example, Ms. Schumers character has a misogynist, racist, homophobic and cantankerous father played by Colin Quinn, and all his jokes are offensive. The movie probably didnt need to go that route to mine laughs, especially when there are plenty of comedic opportunities within the premise of a promiscuous woman whos not looking for Mr. Right but finds him anyway. Far too many comedies have been centered on an irresponsible guy who likes drinking and hooking up and sees no reason to change his ways, only to meet the one and quickly change his ways. Trainwreck switches the genders, putting Ms. Schumer in the lead as Amy, an uninhibited magazine writer who eagerly cheats on her boyfriend (John Cena) because she doesnt think monogamy is feasible. She drinks and smokes weed, but is good enough at her job that boss Dianna (Tilda Swinton) asks her to profile a sports doctor even though Amy hates sports. Her co-workers (Vanessa Bayer, Jon Glaser, Randall Park and an intern played by Ezra Miller) dont understand why shes given the assignment, but off she goes to meet Dr. Aaron Connors (Bill Hader), who works with professional athletes. Although Amy and Aaron dont hit it off at first, they gradually fall in love (of course). And complications ensue (of course). Shock value can work for a quick laugh, but if the reason were shocked remains on screen, he/she/it needs to continue to be funny for the scene to work. To wit, basketball star LeBron James has an extended cameo as Aarons patient, and his scenes misfire because hes asked to do too much, like give advice to Aaron and ask Amy what her intentions are. In other words, they asked Mr. James to act. But hes not an actor, so criticizing him for not playing the scenes well is unfair. The real blame goes to Ms. Schumer (as the writer) and director Judd Apatow for putting the basketball star in this position and not ensuring that he succeeds. It was their responsibility to make sure Mr. James comes across effectively, and he does not. Mr. Apatows directorial efforts have been an absolute train wreck since Knocked Up (2007), with Funny People (2009) and This is 40 (2012) following as more dull comedies that didnt live up to their potential. With Trainwreck, Mr. Apatow was theoretically smart, then, to yield writing duties to Ms. Schumer (this is the first time hes directed something he didnt write), because this allows him to get out of his own way and focus on just directing. Yet again he falls short because the story, though it has some unexpected twists, plays out in the safe, traditional ways we expect. And although it is funny at times, the humor overall tends to go more for the surprise laugh rather than the organic laugh, and as a result it often feels forced. Youll certainly enjoy parts of Trainwreck, but not enough of it to feel satisfied. Leaving the theater with the clear sense that you shouldve laughed more is a definite sign that this underwhelms. >> There are numerous cameos in Trainwreck, but the best is Saturday Night Live cast member Leslie Jones as a subway patron. g m w o c dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC16 WEEK OF JULY 16-22, 2015 KOVEL: ANTIQUESHagenauer designs still copied and sought after BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELAlthough the design of the late 1890s is best known for the sensuous curves of the Art Nouveau period, there were very modern-looking pieces being made by a few European designers. Some of the most famous were in Vienna, Austria. Carl Hagenauer started his own Werkstatten (workshop) in 1898 to make bronzes and other metal wares. He was soon winning awards for his innovative, modern-looking designs. His son Karl (1898-1956) joined the company in 1919 and, with his brother Franz (19061986), created a group of small bronzes inspired by African art. The figures, dressed in tribal clothing, had long, thin arms, legs and faces, which were almost like stick figures. Many small tabletop groups were made in the 1920s through the early 1950s. These Hagenauer pieces are not hard to find at auctions and shops at reasonable prices. But the larger wood and metal African figures, masks and the Art Deco designs made at the same time are pricier. By the 1960s, the company was making large Western figures of brass and even furniture. The shop closed in 1986. But the popular figures, often copied in South America in the 1950s, were again copied in Great Britain in the 1990s. Many made by an ex-Hagenauer employee are marked RR. Both the well-made copies and the originals are going up in price. Q: My small gold-colored ring has a baseball batter on signed Andy Pafko. The top looks like a baseball and has small dials near the edges that show balls, strikes and outs. Two baseball bats with a glove between them are on both sides. What is this ring worth? A: You have an Andy Pafko Scorekeeper Ring, a premium issued by Quaker Oats Muffets breakfast cereal in 1949. It was offered for 15 cents and two Muffets box tops. Pafko (1921-2013) played in the Major Leagues from 1943 to 1959 and was a centerfielder for the Chicago Cubs, Brooklyn Dodgers and Milwaukee Braves. Value of your ring, $200 to $400. Q: An old-timey cash register I saw at an old hotel has cash register drawers that were labeled A, B, D and E with no drawer C. Whats the reason there isnt a drawer C? A: James Ritty, a saloon owner in Dayton, Ohio, is credited with inventing the first commercially successful mechanical cash register in 1879. His machine was known as the Incorruptible Cashier. Multiple drawers were used to keep each employees transactions separate. Only the employee assigned to the drawer or the owner could open the drawer. The letter C wasnt used because it usually stood for cash. Ritty soon sold the rights to his invention to J.H. Eckert, who founded the National Manufacturing Company. The company was sold in 1883 and became the National Cash Register Company in 1884. btn frnrnAT NAPLES GRANDE (844) 522-3981 tb tb rntbrtn.475 fbr | n, 34103 | nbnf.t

The bottom is marked Royal Canadian Pottery. A: The Royal Canadian Art Pottery opened in 1946 as a subsidiary of Foley Potteries Ltd. They have factories in Hamilton and Southampton, Ontario, Canada. The company specialized in Brown Betty-style teapots in dark brown or black that are hand painted or have drippy or sponged decoration. By 1960, R.C.A.P. had become the largest teapot manufacturer in North America. The company began to make art pottery in 1968. Teapots like yours sell for $10 to $20.

CELEBRITY EXTRAHobbit star Aidan Turner appears as lead in Poldark BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: I loved the new Hobbit movies, especially Aidan Turner as Kili. What else can I see him in? Patty T., via emailA: The hunky Hobbit stars in the BBC One/PBS Masterpiece series Poldark, which is based on the novels by Winston Graham. Aidan plays Capt. Ross Poldark, a British veteran of the American War of Independence who travels home to Cornwall after the British defeat to find his father has died, his inheritance is in ruins and his sweetheart, Elizabeth, is betrothed to his cousin Francis. The series has been renewed for a second season, which most likely will air in 2016 (first in the U.K. before it comes across the pond to the U.S.). Depending on how many seasons this lasts, it could help Downton Abbey fans get over the hump once Downton airs its final season come January 2016. To catch up on season one, you can buy Poldark on DVD/Blu-ray, or stream it on Amazon. Q: It seems like Ive been waiting forever for the new Heroes series to start. Can you give me any information about it? Bobby F., via emailA: Soon some of your questions will be answered and no doubt, new ones will form. At 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24, Heroes Reborn premieres on NBC for 13 new episodes. Returning cast members include Jack Coleman as HRG, Jimmy Jean-Louis as the Haitian, Masi Oka as Hiro Nakamura and Greg Grunberg as Matt Parkman. New cast members are Zachary Levi, Robbie Kay, Danika Yarosh, Judith Shekoni, Kiki Sukezane, Henry Zebrowski, Gatlin Green and Ryan Guzman. This go-round brings a fresh crop of heroes, with the following premise: A year ago, a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas, left the city decimated. Blamed for the tragic event, those with extraordinary abilities are in hiding or on the run from those with nefarious motives. The vigilantes include Luke (Mr. Levi) and Joanne (Ms. Shekoni), who are seeking to avenge a tragic loss. Noah Bennet, aka HRG, has gone off the grid, but conspiracy theorist Quentin Frady (Mr. Zebrowski) finds him and opens his eyes to the truth behind the Odessa tragedy.

But mixing sing speaking with pop cooing and occasional full-on vocal blast, the Australian singer transforms her observations of the everyday into personal examinations of anxiety and insecurity, love and regret. Ms. Barnetts writing has been rightfully compared to that of Nirvanas Kurt Cobain in her ability to turn the mundane meaningful. But shes also whip smart, insightful and, importantly, funny, ala The Kinks Ray Davies. The single Despreston, for example, starts out talking about the purchase of a percolator saving $23 a week on coffee, shifts to the possibility of buying a house that has some connection to a man who served in Vietnam and becomes an examination of mortality and responsibility. The shimmering music, like the rest of the album, is driven by Ms. Barnetts incisive guitar and is rooted in Pavement of the s, but spins backward toward the spareness of the Modern Lovers and even a hint of the Velvet Underground on Dead Fox, a number about supermarket vegetables, hay fever and a Jackson Pollock in the tar. The songs range from the spacious ballad Small Poppies, which starts out about staring at the lawn and becomes a languid meditation on a break up, to he buzzing s alt rock stomp of Pedestrian at Best, with its key line Give me all your money, and Ill make some origami, honey. Theres garage rock on Nobody Cares If You Dont Go to the Party, the s pop in the look at insecurity and happiness of Debbie Downer, and layered, grinding guitar crescendos of Kims Caravan all of which feel perfect.

EST. 1969 CUISINE NEWSForm precedes function in Green Tea Terrarium dessert BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comHave you watched the trolls in Frozen and wondered what they would taste like? Pastry chef Kimberly Bechtel at Meredays Brasserie has created the Green Tea Terrarium dessert that closely resembles Kristoffs family and riffs off earthy, herbal notes. If you use your imagination, you can creatively translate the flavors of earth and moss into a treat for the eyes and mouth. At the very bottom of the bowl is a charred orange pastry cream topped with a chocolate graham cracker and shortbread crumbs. Next comes an unsweetened green tea sponge cake that is meant to be really earthy, Ms. Bechtel says, and pine nuts. She uses blackberries and blueberries for the fruit garnish and makes nutmeg-dusted meringue mushrooms to top it all off. On the side comes charred vanilla bean and cardamom ice cream. Ms. Bechtel soaks whole pods of cardamom and vanilla bean in bourbon overnight and roasts them in a wood-burning oven until theyre smoky and brittle. Then she steeps the chopped pods in cream before making the ice cream. The result looks surprisingly like something youd buy off Etsy and put on your dining room table and then eat. Ms. Bechtel attributes her culinary talents and design skills to her grandmother, who taught her basic baking skills, and her father, who taught her how to tinker and fix cars and household items. She extends those skills to detailed and complex construction of her cakes and pastries. Im really into anything thats into design, whether its fashion or how houses look. And Im always inspired by nature, she says. For this particular dessert, form preceded function, because she had a look in mind before she started figuring out which tasty elements shed use to execute it. Now, its one of the most ordered items on the new restaurants dessert menu (Meredays Brasserie was formerly Alto Live Jazz Kitchen). (The wait staff) are always showing photos of it on the iPad, she says, adding most diners who see the dish have to give it a try. Also coming up at the brasserie: a fivecourse Belgium Independence Day beer dinner starting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 21. Menu selections include a torchon of foie gras with raspberries, framboise reduction and French toast and braised pork belly with frisee, candied pecans, Roquefort blue and a natural reduction. Cost is $80. Reservations are required. Meredays Brasserie at Bayfront is open from noon to 9 p.m. MondaySaturday. For more information or to make reservations, call 261-2585 or visit meredaysbrasseriebayfront.com.Naples Winter Wine Festival names 2016 Honored VintnersNaples Winter Wine Festival has named Paul and Emily Michael, owners of Peter Michael Winery, as the Honored Vintners for the 2016 Naples Winter Wine Festival.

The Hours: 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. SundayWednesday, 11 a.m. to midnight Thursday-Saturday The Details: We had a surprise afternoon sans children and were in the perplexing situation of having unaccounted for time on our hands. Sadly, we had no idea what to do with ourselves we just knew it had to be something so we got into the car and drove until what it was called us. Once we hit Third Street and saw a tumbleweed blow past the car, it was obvious that wed have to hit one of the restaurants we never have the opportunity to visit. Lickity-split, we were seated at The Continentals bar, ordering food that seemed a little fancy for a Saturday afternoon, but we did it anyway. The steak tartare was a nicely refreshing bite, as it was served with a bright and green sauce verte, a raw quail egg and crostini. Given the weather, Im happy we went with something cold AND rich; otherwise, Id be devastated that I passed up the onion soup with bone marrow. One More Thing: I ordered one of the days featured craft cocktail concoctions: The Continental Innovation, with Deaths Door Gin, grapefruit bitters, some fancy Italian stuff called Cocchi Americano Bianco, Carpano Bianco and a frozen globe of ice. It was very ginny and not sweet. I liked it. Gin lovers, order it and rejoice. Gin haters, Applebees called and your Cosmos ready. Go get it. Lindsey Nesmith email@example.com

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Bar Tulia, 462 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 228-7606 Do you love Chef Vincenzo Bertulias Osteria Tulia? Then you ought to try his second concept: Bar Tulia, a gastropub right next door. Here you can dine on small plates, pizzas, house-made sausage and other items that appeal to the creative chef served in a rustic yet hip atmosphere thats clearly gained a following. Even the drinks are inventive, like the pigalle, a refreshing blend of St. Germain elderflower liqueur, prosecco, soda and lemon; and the Hurricane, with three kinds of rum, passion fruit, bitters, grenadine and lime. Graze your way through the menu as we did: a generous plate of fresh ceviche; grilled octopus on greens and fingerling potatoes; a perfectly rendered pizza with house-made mozzarella and tomato sauce with fresh basil; grilled house sausage atop stewed white beans; deviled eggs with smoked trout roe; and a full-sized entre of salmon with roasted carrots and beets. For dessert: Try the Sicilian waffle with caramelized bananas and maple bourbon almond truffle. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2015 Blueberrys, 3350 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 430-0700 Looking for a hearty meal that you need not get dressed up or pay dearly for? Check out this welcoming dinerstyle establishment where the friendly service staff delivers large, steaming platters of nicely prepared, down-home food. Breakfast is a big deal here and a meal we found satisfying as did the rest of the capacity crowd on a Sunday morning. While you can order a fruit plate with cottage cheese or a virtuous bowl of oatmeal, thats not what most customers are after. Blueberry pancakes were a good choice, although Id recommend syrup in lieu of the runny blueberry compote served with them. A Santa Fe omelet had a tasty blend of cilantro, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos and Jack cheese within and a touch of salsa on the side. Choose toast or pancakes plus potatoes, grits, sliced tomatoes or fruit to go with your eggs. I liked the plain buttermilk pancake and, once sufficiently butter ed and salted, the grits. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2014 DeRomos Gourmet Market & Restaurant, The Promenade at Bonita Bay, 26811 South Bay Drive, Bonita Springs; 325-3583 The combination of fresh food market and 250-seat restaurant makes DeRomos an attractive destination for foodies and Italo-philes. Skip the so-so fried calamari and zucchini basket and start with a taste of Nonnas Beefy Meatballs, which strike a delicate balance between dense and light and are tucked into a luscious pool of Sunday gravy with dollops of remarkably creamy housemade ricotta. The house-made pastas are a must-have. Our intensely flavored Cavatelli DeRomo consisted of tender rolled tubes of pasta tossed with sauted broccoli rabe, sweet Italian sausage made in-house and chewy sundried tomatoes. The Vitello Schantinella took a similar approach, combining three proteins tied together with a basil-scented golden sherry cream sauce: tender veal medallions, sliced thickly, browned lightly, yet still pink and juicy within, and jumbo shrimp and plump sea scallops so perfectly done they were barely cooked-through. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2014 FUSE Global Cuisine, 2500 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 456-4585 Fried duck mac and cheese, hog wings (braised pork fore shanks fried and tossed with chili garlic sauce, sesame seeds and green onions), golden beet salad with bucheron cheese and micro greens are but a few of the ways to start off a meal at this intriguing spot run by chef/owner Greg Scarlatos (formerly of Angelinas) and his fiance/business partner Monica Czechowska. Entree options offer similarly imaginative but not over-the-top combinations, such as Colorado lamb chops with tart cherry glaze and Stilton potato hash garnished with crisp Brussels sprouts or cobia and wild mushroom with huckleberry gastrique. Guava bread pudding with fresh strawberries made a fine end to the meal. Service was gracious, the ambience soothing. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2013 Trattoria Abruzzo, Pavilion Shopping Center, 835 Vanderbilt Beach Road, North Naples; 596-8010 The Laccetti family has developed a loyal following even though this popular dining spot sits well back from the street on the Vanderbilt Beach Road side of the Pavilion Shopping Center. Youll find some surprises on the menu, like the Calamari Adriatico (squid sauted with artichoke hearts, kalamata olives and cherry tomatoes) and housemade Agnolotti Nonno Paolo (large tender half-moons of ravioli stuffed with Parmigiano and fontina cheese topped with porcini mushrooms and a hint of truffle oil). Snapper Livornese consisted of a good-sized fillet topped with kalamatas, capers and anchovies in a light marinara sauce and the Pollo Ortolona was an impressive plate of boneless chicken breast with shiitake mushrooms, herbs, garlic and demi-glace with grand-reserve balsamic and a load of fresh arugula. We finished by sharing a lovely lemon tart just as a singer began serenading the crowd with Italian classics. Service was friendly but could have been smoother when it came to the flow of courses. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed August 2014 Key to ratings Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 16-22, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C31 CUISINEMake your next trip to the beach a picnic to rememberFancy an elegant beach picnic? Hanging out in the sand and the sun means packing food that is easily transportable, heat resistant and requires little handling. Rather than grabbing a cooler and filling it with cut fruit and a dozen bottles of water, try these tips to kick it up a notch with something more dignified. 1. Cheese Believe it or not, cheese can actually be a tasty and easy component of a beachside lunch. Just be sure to grab something that is enhanced when warmed, like camembert, or something gooey that wont get oily when it heats up. Cheddar, delicious and accessible as it is, will just get gross. 2. Canned champagne It sounds counterintuitive, but the Sofia Mini of Francis Ford Coppola Winery Sofia Blanc de Blancs is actually quite delicious and fizzes with floral and melon notes. It comes with a small straw for dainty sipping and will keep glass containers off the beach like nature intended. Pick some up at World Market or any number of local wine shops. $5 each. Francisfordcoppolawinery.com. 3. Pretty packaging Dont heave your fancy haul around in a cooler from a local box store. Thats fine when youre accommodating the Goldfishand-juice-box crowd, but were going for style on this outing. What about one of these super cute baskets woven in the Bolgatanga region of Ghana? $48. Thelittlemarket.com. 4. Preferred seating Avoid the frustration of a wayward towel by snagging a beach blanket built to withstand the inconveniences of beachside dining. L.L. Beans Grand Trunk Parasheet is made out of nylon parachute silk, meaning it stays cool and sand slides right off. It can also be staked at the corners or filled with sand to keep it from blowing away. $39.95. llbean.com. 5. Pre-packaged treats If organizing your own meal doesnt appeal to you, Wynns Market, Naples longstanding go-to for delicious nibbles, has a variety of options that will add convenience and elegance to your picnic. Heres a short list of beachand boatready meals the store offers: Grilled flatbread with roasted beef tenderloin, arugula, bleu cheese with balsamic drizzle, crostini and Italian imported cheese. Grilled ahi tuna salad with mixed greens, grilled tuna, sliced tri-color peppers, cucumbers with Asian vinaigrette. Mediterranean box with hummus, pita bread, Kalamata olives, feta spread, grilled vegetables and tabouli. Antipasto box with prosciutto, genoa salami, sweet capicola, olives, provolone stuffed peppers. Artisan sandwich slider box for two offers a choice of four sliders: caprese with local tomatoes, basil and fresh mozzarella with balsamic glaze; grilled chicken pesto with provolone, roasted tomatoes and mixed greens; ham and brie with fig spread; or Italian with prosciutto, g enoa salami, roasted peppers, provolone and tapanade. The meal comes with two salads and a choice of brownie or lemon square. Wynns requires ordering 24 hours in advance. Sandwiches are $8.99, snack boxes are $18.99 and the sandwich box for two costs $19.99. To place an order, call 261-7157. 6. The right hot spot Downtown Naples has a great stretch of beach access points to choose from, but may we suggest planning your picnic for the evening? The heat is less intense, the daytime crowd has retreated and you can pair a summer sunset with your food. For a great spot, try Lely Barefoot Beach in Bonita Springs or one of the more remote access points south of the Naples pier. Now that weve provided you with dining options, remember to pack a few items for ambience. Portable speakers, a board game or badminton and lighting will go a long way to ensuring that your picnic is easy, fun and memorable. Remember, the whole point of a picnic is that its a casual, easy and fun way to enjoy the great outdoors but that doesnt mean it cant be sophisticated as well.
