COMMENTARYDont worryImagine for a moment your tap water was the color of a rusty nail. It tasted terrible, it smelled like the bottom of your garbage can and bathing in it gave you a rash. Imagine if your kids manifested health and behavioral issues subsequent to the changes in the water. Imagine becoming frantic and raising the alarm for someone, anyone, to take seriously the deterioration you and your neighbors were experiencing in the water supplied by the public utility. Imagine this goes on for months, despite repeated complaints made to the responsible government agencies and urgent calls to your elected officials. Imagine the response that you get with astonishing regularity is, Dont worry. Be happy. Your water is perfectly safe. The condescension you hear in their replies signals you and your neighbors are paranoid loonies. Imagine nobody responding or caring until finally the truth is no longer deniable. Your data and evidence prove the communitys water is massively poisoned with lead. The catastrophic harm being done to public health is exposed. Imagine thousands of kids subsequently tested have lead in their bodies. The consequence they suffer is irreversible damage to their brains and overall health. Imagine that only then is a state of emergency declared, citing the poisoning of an entire citys water supply. More than 100,000 residents are directly affected. The trail of the states failures to prevent this catastrophe leads all the way to the governor. Officials resign and heads roll. The governor apologizes and says he will make it right amidst public demands he resign. He doesnt and likely wont. From the safe distance of South Florida, we follow the news, take our showers, cook our food and drink water supplied by the local utility. We feel a pang of regret for Flint and its residents. We shake our heads in disbelief at the stupidity and negligence of the state public officials grown hostile to serving and protecting the public interest. But this is what you get when state government ceases to function as an instrument of the people, and corporate enterprise drives its calling. We might think such a thing could not happen in our state or in our town. But our confidence may be misplaced. The water crisis in Flint has history going back decades. Michigan state government consistently underinvested in the regulatory systems and infrastructure necessary to protect and conserve the citys water supply and quality and special interests prevailed over the public interest in the wave of cost-cutting affecting public services. The states failures of policy and due diligence in Flint were aided and abetted by lawmakers who gutted and abandoned the states role of regulatory oversight, crippling the ways and means of state government to provide essential services and perform its role of stewardship on the publics behalf. The aversion of state officials to governing, as if the people mattered also, put the states long-term future at risk and allowed a corporate-friendly state bureaucracy to give away the store and pass the key to their favorite friends. Florida is vulnerable on all counts. Gov. Rick Scott and the legislative majority are choking off budget resources for environmental protection and conservation, including failing to invest in infrastructure improvements demanded by climate change which affects protection and sustainability of Floridas freshwater supply. In the recent legislative session, the conservative majority sought to further shed the states environmental responsibilities, over-compensating special interests with policies proposed and favorable to satisfying a laundry list of their lobbyists wants and needs. These included a major rewrite of state water policy that rewards polluters, strips meaningful language to protect Floridas freshwater aquifer and springs and undermines the states commitment to restoration of the Everglades. It includes supporting legislation to bar local governments from enacting prohibitions on fracking, a process which involves drilling thousands of feet below ground and forcibly injecting millions of gallons of toxic chemicals into layers of rock to release gas and oil. To do this, they ignored the fact that rock in Florida is mostly limestone, porous as Swiss cheese, highly vulnerable to leeching contamination, and a geological freeway into the states freshwater aquifers. Fracking subjects the water supply for millions of residents to the threat of chemical poisoning. And thats only one issue with the process. Meanwhile, the Miami Herald reports, phosphorus and ammonia levels increased dramatically in the aquifer under Biscayne Bay after Florida Power & Light Co. started sucking up as much as 100 million gallons a day of freshwater to cool its nuclear reactors at Turkey Point. The Biscayne Aquifer is the source of drinking water for 3 million people in South Florida. So how do you think Gov. Scott and the conservative majority in our state Legislature reply to the fears being raised about these issues and the threats they represent to our states water supply and quality? Why, they say, Dont worry. Be happy. Your water is perfectly safe. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian. She resides with her family and pugs in Jupiter.

The fight for the Republican nomination isnt so much a vicious brawl between the grass roots and the establishment as it is a bitter struggle between traditional conservatism and populism that few could have foreseen. Conservatism has always had a populist element, encapsulated by the oftquoted William F. Buckley Jr. line that he would rather be governed by the first 2,000 names in the Boston phone book than by the Harvard faculty. But the populism was tethered to, and in the service of, an ideology of limited-government constitutionalism. The fight between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump is over whether that connection will continue to exist, and whether the conservatism (as represented by Mr. Cruz) or the populism (as represented by Mr. Trump) will be ascendant. Mr. Cruz did all he could as long as possible to accommodate Mr. Trump, but now that the fight between them is out in the open, the differences are particularly stark. Mr. Cruz is a rigorous constitutionalist. Hes devoted much of his career to defending the Constitution and has argued numerous cases before the Supreme Court. Mr. Trump has certainly heard of the Constitution, but he may know even less about it than he knows about the Bible. Although Mr. Cruz is more flexible than his reputation suggests, he has the long baseline of consistency that you would expect from a genuine believer in a political philosophy. Mr. Trump has a few long-running themes and bugaboos, but has been all over the map on almost everything and sometimes will meander from one position to another within the same answer, in keeping with his lack of ideological anchor (and limited knowledge of policy). The two have completely different political styles. Mr. Trump is instinctual and has a roguish charm, whereas Mr. Cruz is earnest and tightly disciplined. If almost everything about Mr. Trump is unconventional, Mr. Cruz is outwardly a very traditional politician. The irony of Mr. Cruzs position now is that, despite all his outsider branding, he is not getting savaged by the establishment. It is Mr. Trump who calls him a hypocrite and a liar. It is Mr. Trump who says hes a nasty guy and a maniac with a temperament problem. And it is Mr. Trump, of course, who constantly raises doubts about his eligibility to serve as president. If you guessed a key event in the nomination fight would be the othering of the most potent tea-party conservative in the country by a billionaire businessman with a long trail of liberal positions and a history of praising President Barack Obama well, then, you forecast the GOP race perfectly. In short, Mr. Cruz is under assault from a segment of the anti-establishment, although Mr. Cruz takes every opportunity to portray himself as the victim of the machinations of dastardly political insiders. The reality is that the establishment is sitting on its hands, agonizing over whom it loathes least, Mr. Trump or Mr. Cruz, while the fight between populism and conservatism rages. The battle for the soul of the GOP is now a battle for the soul of the right. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION s n t s a t rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly TRAPping access to safe, legal abortionsPARK CITY, Utah A Houston grand jury returned a surprise indictment last week. It was tasked with investigating videos that purported to expose Planned Parenthood for selling the body parts of aborted fetuses. The grand jury found no wrongdoing by Planned Parenthood, but instead charged the video producers, David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt from the anti-abortion group The Center for Medical Progress, with tampering with a government record, a felony. Meanwhile, another video was released, this one an accurate depiction of the threat to womens reproductive rights around the country. TRAPPED, a moving documentary that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, demonstrates how access to safe, legal abortions has come under assault in the U.S., as state after state passes restrictive TRAP laws (thats Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers). These laws, which have proliferated since the tea-party sweep of state legislatures in 2010, purport to protect the health of women, but actually result in the closure of womens health clinics. TRAPPED is being released nationally just as a womans right to choose whether or not to have an abortion faces a crucial challenge before the U.S. Supreme Court on March 2. Dawn Porter is the award-winning filmmaker who wrote, directed and produced TRAPPED. While in Mississippi shooting an earlier film, she learned that the state had only one remaining clinic where abortions were available. She went there to meet Dr. Willie Parker, an obstetrician/gynecologist. Appearing on Democracy Now! early in the morning after the Jan. 24 premiere of TRAPPED, Dr. Parker told me: Ive been an OB-GYN for 21 years, a doctor for 25. And when it became clear to me ... that one in three women need abortion care in their reproductive lives and that disproportionately poor women and women of color were not having those services, it became important to me to guarantee access to these very important health services by moving back to my hometown in Birmingham and to provide services in the South. The film follows Dr. Parker and several other abortion providers in Alabama, where TRAP laws have been passed that mandate onerous changes to clinics where abortions are provided. Most of these laws are based on model legislation drafted by an anti-choice group called Americans United for Life. They force safe, legally functioning abortion service providers to make costly and unnecessary improvements to their facilities. In scores of cases, the clinics cannot afford to make the changes and, consequently, have to shut down. In one scene of TRAPPED, Dr. Parker is shown with a patient, relaying to her information that is required by Alabamas TRAP law: I'm required by law to tell you that by having an abortion, it can increase your risk for breast cancer. There is no scientific evidence to support that. Now, the state requires me to tell you that if you were having this procedure, there is the risk of complications. I think thats a good thing to know, the risk. The state requires me to tell you that you can have heavy bleeding that can be life threatening, and it could require you to be transferred to the hospital and need a blood transfusion. If youre having a bleeding that can only be controlled with removing your uterus, youd have to have a hysterectomy, and youd lose your ability to have babies in the future. Those are all the risks associated, but guess what? Those are the exact same risks associated with having a baby. It is to say that youre not taking any extra health risk. So abortion is extremely safe. In Texas, the TRAP law, known as HB2, passed in 2013. Before HB2 became law, there were 40 operating abortion clinics in Texas. Only 19 remain. A San Antonio clinic filed a lawsuit opposing HB2s restrictions. That case, Whole Womans Health v. Hellerstedt (formerly v. Cole), will be argued before the U.S. Supreme Court on March 2, with a decision expected by June. The doctored videos that were created to take down Planned Parenthood failed in their goal; their creators face years in prison. While TRAPPED will be airing in June on the PBS documentary series Independent Lens, it also will be shown in movie theaters, with concurrent community screenings. Ms. Porter hopes her latest film will engage, persuade and mobilize people across the country as this critical healthcare issue is decided by the Supreme Court. Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!, the daily TV/radio news hour that airs on more than 1,300 stations around the world. She is the coauthor, with Denis Moynihan, of The Silenced Majority, a New York Times best-seller. c S e e p m amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly

A6 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 4-10, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY PROFILES IN PARADISEUsing his gifts to help protect the communitys treasuresMany of us migrated to the Paradise Coast to enjoy the clean air, the Gulf of Mexico and the surrounding pristine beauty. With continuing development, we need to balance our growth with a concern for maintaining the environment. Will our water be clean? Will we have enough? More than 1 million acres of rural lands are proposed for development. Will it be done in a way that protects lands vital to our survival and to the survival of Floridas endangered and threatened species? Neapolitan William Boyajian hopes to help ensure a yes answer to the above question, and to that end the owner of Port Royal Jewelers serves as chair for this years Magic Under the Mangroves, the annual gala for Conservancy of Southwest Florida. I believe that when you love something, it is your responsibility to protect it, he says. My time away from the area allowed me to see that Naples is the place I truly love. This realization has inspired me to protect this beautiful place by educating people about the natural environment, and thats what Im honored to do as chair of Magic. Mr. Boyajian is also proud to be the first Magic Man, or male chair of the event, which over the years has raised more than $8.2 million dollars in support of the Conservancys mission to protect our regions water, land, wildlife and future. The Boyajian family opened its first jewelry store in New York City around the turn of the 20th century. The family moved from Armenia to the United States in the later part of the 19th century and started to manufacture under the name Boyajian Brothers for the American market. Williams father, Leo, studied gemology and geology and went into the family business at a very young age. William was born in Fort Lauderdale and moved to Naples from California with his family when he was 11. After Naples High School, he went back to California to study at UCLA. He earned a graduate gemologist degree from the Gemological Institute of America and also studied at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif. In his late 20s, he moved to Bangkok for a year to learn the art of jewelry manufacturing. He has traveled the world to see first-hand the mining, cutting and sorting of color stones; the manufacturing processes of fine jewelry; and the art of buying and selling gemstones. Along with supporting the Conservancy, William has supported Sunshine Kids, The Guadalupe Center, Opera Naples, The Naples Players, Naples Cat Alliance, Baker Park, The NCH Hospital Ball, Humane Society Naples, PAWS Assistance Dobs, the Naples Art Association, The Naples Zoo and the local Red Cross. I am looking to inspire by my example more local businesses to get involved with the many great charities in our county, he says. Each piece Port Royal Jewelers donates to local charity is custom made. I do this because I see the need to make a difference, and customizing a piece of jewelry for a charity brings so much more money when auctioning off these treasures, he explains. Mentor(s): My father, Leo Boyajian; my uncle, Bill Boyajian; and my friend and local jeweler, Jose Aragon. What your mother was always right about: That God has given me a special gift to share with the world. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? An automotive designer and engineer. I loved sculpting metal and seeing the re ections of light onto the surfaces. Its what I do now on a smaller scale. High school job: At Landmark Gems, my fathers jewelry store on Fifth Avenue, in the 1970s. Guilty pleasures: Taking time to go deep sea shing in season and camping in Colorado in the summer. Most recent vacation: Yellowstone National Park. Wow! One thing on your bucket list: Going to Bolivia to see Puma Punku. Skill or talent you wish you had: I wish I had nished taking ying lessons for a single-engine license. Advice for young people: Practice listening to others. You can avoid a lot of mistakes by not thinking ahead about what youre going to say in response but rather listening and understanding what others are trying to communicate. Best thing about kids: Their innocence and trust. I wish I could live through the eyes of a child. But whenever I try, someone always tells me to grow up. What makes you laugh: The simple, dry wit of the British. Last book read: I read the Bible every day. The last secular book I read would have to be : A Space Odyssey.Something youll never understand: Why some think they need to pick a side in politics. I am an independent. Pet peeve: Untrained dogs that jump on you after you told them to stop. Puppies are excused from this peeve. Something people would be surprised to nd out about you: I design my new collections of jewelry in my head while dreaming at night. What are you most proud of? The work I have done to raise money and awareness in our community for the many charities that I give back to. Talking points with William Boyajian bobHARDENbobharden@hotmail.cxom

Fort Myers received 12.98 inches of rain in January, a record for the month. The previous January record was 7.95 inches in 1991. So the record fell by a smidge more than 5 inches. The January average rainfall total in Fort Myers is 1.93 inches. The January 2016 rainfall total was roughly 10 inches more than normal. The rains came and they never seemed to leave. That was quite a contrast to many Januarys in the past. Meteorologists blame the abnormally wet weather on El Nio, a complex weather pattern resulting from variations in ocean temperatures in the equatorial Pacific, according the the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration. NOAA predicted last May that there was more than a 90 percent probability El Nino would last through the winter. What exactly does El Nino do? Weather.com put it this way: For reasons still not well understood, every 2-7 years, this patch of ocean warms up for 6 to 18 months. This El Nino was different from previous incarnations of the phenomenon. This year, it combined with other weather factors to produce epic rainfall. It was epic right off the charts. The January rainfall of 12.98 inches in Fort Myers is more than the city typically receives in the first five months of the year. The timing of the January rain was good news for baseball fans looking forward to spring training games in March. Florida spring training facilities such as CenturyLink Sports Complex in Fort Myers, the spring home of the Minnesota Twins, were drenched. This is the first time Ive seen it this wet this time of year, said Keith Blasingim, a Lee County employee who maintains the CenturyLink ball fields. Although spring-training baseball wasnt affected by the record rain golf courses most certainly were affected. The number of rounds played was down at courses throughout the region. Todd Blanton, general manager of the Esplanade Golf & Country Club in Naples, didnt have statistics available when he talked to Florida Weekly. But he estimated the number of rounds played at his course was down about 20 percent over a typical January. The rain had an economic ripple affect, he pointed out. When the golfers couldnt play, golf course employees everywhere worked fewer hours and those dependent on tips received fewer tips. Ive never seen it this bad, especially for January, Mr. Blanton said.

Starting at noon Monday, Feb. 29, and ending at 11:59 a.m. Tuesday, March 1, Give Where You Live is an effort to give 40 Collier County nonprofits a much-needed boost with donations and a $400,000 matching fund. The 24-hour online giving campaign is designed to transform the way Collier County residents think about and contribute to local charities. Built upon the idea that everyone can be a philanthropist, the project affords individuals a simplified means of supporting the education and basic-needs efforts of 40 nonprofits. The inaugural Give Where You Live campaign raised $1.8 million for 30 organizations. This year we have expanded to include 40 nonprofits, says Eileen Connolly-Keesler, Community Foundation president and CEO. With a simple click of a mouse at givewhereyoulivecollier. org, individuals can contribute to one or all of the participating nonprofits. No matter the size of your contribution, you can be a philanthropist who makes a difference in this community, Ms. Connolly-Keesler adds. Our job is to make it easy for anyone to make a positive change in the lives of thousands of people in our community. Give Where You Live nonprofits will use social, print and broadcast media, as well as word of mouth, to spread awareness. They will also be spotlighted in Community Foundation social media outlets in the weeks leading up to Feb. 29 to increase awareness about the ways in which they impact our community. The aim is to give each organization a voice and a face, thereby raising its community visibility. Mary Beth Geier, coordinator in the Florida region for the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation, says the foundaiotn is happy to partner with the Community Foundation. People are still hungry, still in need of clothing and shelter and other services, she says. They are still in need of quality educational programs. Perhaps this one day of giving will serve as a reminder that supporting area nonprofits should be a year-round commitment.About the foundationsThe Community Foundation of Collier County was established in 1985 to increase and focus private philanthropy in the area. Today it manages more than 510 funds, collaborates with more than 400 nonprofits, holds more than $110 million in assets and has distributed more than $88 million in grants to nonprofit organizations and community programs. Learn more at cfcollier.org. The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation was founded in 2004 by Best Buy founder and Naples resident Dick Schulze as a way to give back to the community. Mr. Schulze and his family believe that a good education, a supportive family and a strong work ethic prepare children for a successful future. To support that belief, the foundation supports education and basic human services, among other types of organizations. 2016 Give Where You Live participating charitiesAlzheimers Association, Florida Gulf Coast Chapter American Red Cross, Floridas Southern Gulf Region Angels Undercover Big Brother Big Sisters of the Sun Coast Books for Collier Kids Boys and Girls Club of Collier County Cancer Alliance of Naples Care Club of Collier County Champions For Learning Childrens Advocacy Center Collier Child Care Resources Collier Harvest Collier Senior Resources Conservancy of SWF David Lawrence Foundation for Mental Health Dental Outreach of Collier Friends of Fostrer Children Forever Friends of Rookery Bay Fun Time Early Childhood Academy Grace Place for Children and Families Greater Marco Family YMCA Greater Naples YMCA Guadalupe Center Habitat for Humanity Harry Chapin Food Bank of SWF Healthcare Network of SWF Jewish Family & Community Services of SWF Junior Achievement of SWF Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Florida Suncoast Chapter Make-A-Wish Southern Florida Meals of Hope Neighborhood Health Clinic New Horizons of SWF PACE Center for Girls-Collier at Immokalee Salvation Army Naples Senior Friendship Health Center St. Matthews House The Immokalee Foundatoin The Shelter for Abused Women & Children Youth Haven

Disgusting. Ugly. Smelly. When people use these words in response to my query about what they think about vultures and more often than not, they do I make it a personal mission to change their minds. Lets start with the basics. Two species of vultures can be seen here in Southwest Florida: the black vulture and the turkey vulture. Turkey vultures have red heads, while black vultures have black heads. In flight, the birds are often too far away to see the color of their heads, but the color of the underside of their wings is also a distinguishing feature. Turkey vultures have silver feathers along the full length of the underside of their wings; black vultures have silver feathers only at the tips of their wings. Lets talk about why these birds are so awesome and so important to our environment. Vultures are natures cleanup crew. As scavengers, they seek out dead animals as their primary source of food. Without vultures, there would be A LOT of dead animals lying around in along roadsides and in the wetland and upland areas of Southwest Florida. But vultures, along with a variety of insects and other scavengers, feast on these carcasses, helping to eliminate toxic bacteria and diseases. Vultures have such powerful digestive systems that they are even able to digest botulism and eliminate it from the environment. Black vultures and turkey vultures need each other. On the surface, it may appear that both species fill the same scavenger role in the ecosystem. But when we examine them a little more closely, we realize how different, and equally valuable, they are. Turkey vultures have a highly developed sense of smell and can locate their food from above a tree canopy based on smell alone. Black vultures, on the other hand, are not able to smell very well at all. Often, black vultures will be seen soaring near a turkey vulture, waiting for them to locate their next meal. And once that meal is found, black vultures are typically the first to eat, often pushing the turkey vultures off to the side. You might be thinking the turkey vulture is getting the raw end of the deal here, having done all the work to find the food and then moving aside so the black vulture can eat first. But, this system is often to the turkey vultures advantage. Black vultures have a much stronger beak than turkey vultures and are able to more easily tear into an animal carcass. Because of the turkey vultures softer beak, it is easier for them to dig in after the black vulture has gotten things started. Its pretty amazing how these two birds work together. Next time youre outside and you see a group of vultures soaring overhead, remember how valuable they are and and be thankful for their service to the environment. Simply put, vultures are awesome. Nicki Dardinger is director of environmental education at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. For more information, visit conservancy. org. BRENDA HILES-HURT / COURTESY PHOTO Eagle Award for 2016 goes to the SmithsJeannie and Christopher Smith have been awarded the Conservancy of Southwest Floridas highest honor, the Eagle Award, for their contributions and commitment to the protection of Southwest Floridas natural resources. Rob Moher, Conservancy president, and Lynn Slabaugh, board chair, presented the award at the recent annual meeting. The Smith name is seen many places throughout the Conservancy property. The 7-acre Christopher B. Smith Preserve serves as a natural upland and scrub habitat that is home to more than 200 plant species, 70 gopher tortoises and hundreds of other animal species. The Jeannie Meg Smith Theater has allowed the Conservancy to utilize the power of film to showcase the Southwest Florida environment to the community. The Smiths also enabled the Conservancy to create a new front entrance and establish its current address on Smith Preserve Way, and contributed greatly to the capital campaign that was largest conservation campaign in Florida. Mrs. Smith has also served as a board member, has chaired the Magic Under the Mangroves gala and been involved in renovations to the Nature Center. The couple will be honored at the 2016 Magic Under the Mangroves, coming up Thursday, March 3, at the Conservancy. For information about the evening, visit conservancy.org/magic.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 4-10, 2016 A19 George M. Mantikas, DMD, LLC5100 Tamiami Trail North, Naples, FL WINTER SPECIAL A Practice For Optimal Dental FitnessGood until February 28, 2016 .Comprehensive Exam Radiographs Cleaning $ 99Newest fashionistasIn January, the upscale Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana introduced stylish hijabs and abayas aimed at Muslim women unafraid to call attention to themselves as they exercise their obliged modesty. D&Gs marketing effort even accessorized models headscarves and cloaks with stilettos and oversized, gaudily framed sunglasses. It was clear from the suggested retail prices that D&G would be pitching the line mainly in the wealthy Persian Gulf countries like United Arab Emirates.Unclear on the conceptAwkward signals in New Jersey: (1) The government watchdog MuckRock requested records on the cause of death of a dolphin in New Jerseys South River last year (to investigate larger dangers to the animal), but in January 2016 the states Department of Agriculture initially declined to release them citing medical privacy (usually requested, for autopsies, by the deceaseds family). (2) At the same time, Maria Vaccarella is facing a $500 fine in Howell, N.J., for violating a state law because she illegally rendered care to two apparently orphaned baby squirrels when their mother abandoned them. She was due in court as News of the Weird went to press.Questionable judgmentsThe director of senior services for Cranston, R.I., resigned in January after a mayors press-conference went badly. To publicize a snow-removal program that would benefit seniors unable to shovel for themselves, the director (needing a proper example of a beneficiary of the program) instructed a middle-aged male subordinate to (unconvincingly) don a wig and dress and stand beside the mayor during the announcement.Cultural diversityWeird Japan, Again: (1) Among the sites Japan has submitted for 2017 United Nations World Heritage status is the island of Okinoshima, home of a sacred shrine with which Shinto gods have been protecting fishermen as long ago as the fourth century. (The island is so sacred that females have never been allowed on it judged either too delicate to make the trip or menstrually unclean). (2) A current Tokyo craze, reported an Australian Broadcasting correspondent, involves stressed out professionals and office workers publicly outfitted in colorful, full-body lycra suits (zentai) in a rebellion against the nations stultifying conformity. Said one, Im a different person wearing this. I can be friendly to anyone.Suspicions confirmed Crescent City, Calif., drug dealer James Banuelos pleaded guilty in January in exchange for a lighter sentence (three years in prison), thus avoiding for police the airing of an embarrassing hidden-camera video of the raid showing arresting officers stealing the dealers money and valuables. Multiple officers were shown laughing and helping themselves, and a gold chain belonging to Mr. Banuelos wound up for sale a few days later on Craigslist. As part of the plea agreement, the prosecutor agreed to give all of Mr. Banuelos stuff back to him. The United Nations announced at year-end that the book most often checked out last year at its in-house Dag Hammarskjold Library in New York was the nearly 500-page Immunity of Heads of State and State Officials for International Crimes. The list of borrowers was not revealed. (In general, the book concludes, current heads of state have immunity but not past ones.)

BEHIND THE W HEELFlorida auction is crossing new oceansWe are fortunate to have one of the worlds largest automobile auctions taking place in our backyard. After all, even if youre not a bidder, having more than 3,000 vehicles in one place is still one heck of a car show. But this year theres more to the story than just volume; its also about diversity. Mecum built its reputation on American muscle cars. Five years ago, this auction barely deviated from Detroits big three automakers, and so a Packard could almost have been considered an exotic entry. This year was very different. Plenty of American chrome and muscle ranging from $2,500 to more than $2.5 million was up for grabs, but there was also a noticeable crop of imports. This was everything from Don Johnsons Ferrari Testarossa used in Miami Vice to a Cold War-era Russian military vehicle. In fact, Toyota had an official presence there watching one of their rare 1967 2000GT coupes possibly set a price world record. This coupe represents a benchmark in the companys history because it was used as a halo car to bring attention to the brand. The handcrafted aluminum body and high-revving 2.0-liter engine made it a genuine exotic that accomplished its goal of getting people talking about Toyota. But its high base price also meant drivers often elected to pay less for the more luxurious Mercedes 250SL or more powerful Jaguar XKE. Toyota only made 351 examples, of which only 62 were sent to the U.S. The 2000GT is a true exotic, but setting a new price benchmark at this traditionally American car auction was an ambitious idea. Unfortunately, the $750,000 high bid fell short of the reserve. The slick red coupe didnt sell, but thats far from the whole story. There were 33 other Japanese cars that crossed the auction block, and only mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

That could seem like a failure, but it actually might be telling us where the market is going. This years Florida auction can be seen as a quiet litmus test for vintage cars form Japan. These have been popular over the last few years in California auctions where Japanese car companies were adopted much earlier than they were across the rest of the country. The fact that theyre now showing up in places like Mecums Kissimmee auction could be a telltale sign. After all, there are now people willing to send Japanese cars to a place that once felt more exclusively American than eating apple pie on the Fourth of July. The Toyota 2000GT was once used as a tool to blaze a trail into a widespread acceptance of Japanese cars. Nearly half a century later, this rare coupe is back again to help create this same awareness on the vintage car market. Does that mean the 30-year-old Corolla or Accord that youve been babying in your garage may someday pay off? Maybe soon your local Florida Kissimmee auction will treat them with the same distinction as the Chevelles and Fairlanes get today. But first you have to have the guts to put it on the auction block.
A22 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 4-10, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.oaktreedentistrynaples.com 90 Cypress Way East #20 Naples FL (Across From Sams Club) 239-596-5771 Insurance Processing Early Morning Appointments Fun money scholarships help lessen stress for TIF students SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYDr. Massoud Eghrari and his late wife, Isabella, knew from their personal experiences how grueling it could be to pursue an education and career. So, in addition to funding scholarships for education through The Immokalee Foundation, they established scholarships for $500 each that students could use for whatever they wished. Students have a lot of pressure and they often cannot enjoy their lives with so much pressure, Dr. Eghrari said. This money is just to make them happy and to spend however they want. This past December, 11 more Immokalee students received fun money. Three years ago, one of the first students to receive this scholarship was Yazmin Hernandez. Now 21, she has just two semesters left before she finishes her bachelors degree in accounting at Florida Gulf Coast University. She has been living on campus and used her award mostly to eat in restaurants. I went out to eat many times with family and friends, she said. I used the money periodically, and it was great. I didnt have to worry about how I was going to pay for dinner, and going out helped relieve my stress and clear my head. Especially in your first year of school, youre trying to adjust, and it was one thing I didnt have to think about. Besides, I didnt have a car to come home, and I was kind of stuck. Ms. Hernandez, the first person in her family to attend college, works part time as a staff accountant at The Immokalee Foundation. She became eligible for the fun money scholarship by being part of TIFs Career Development program. Israel Vega is the second in his family to go to college; his older sister also was involved in TIFs programs as a tuition scholarship recipient. She is in her senior year at BirminghamSouthern College in Alabama and will attend medical school. Mr. Vega is in Daytona Beach as a freshman at EmbryRiddle Aeronautical University, the oldest and largest aviation-based university in the world. He wants to become a rocket scientist, majoring in aerospace engineering with a minor in astronomy. I can definitely see why its known as a top-notch school, Mr. Vega said. But hes working hard, and one thing he doesnt have to worry about is doing laundry so frequently. With his fun money scholarship, he said, I went on a shopping spree.

Dr. Eghrari and his wife, Tayebeh, award both tuition and fun-money scholarships annually to TIF students. A retired surgeon who moved to Southwest Florida from New York seven years ago, he is a strong supporter of education and TIFs efforts to give underprivileged children a new life as wise and useful members of society. Many TIF scholarship recipients come back to Immokalee and share what they have learned. You can see the changes in them, and in a short time, Dr. Eghrari said. You dont have to wait a generation to see what a difference their scholarships make. Mr. Vega is very aware of the difference the generosity of people like the Eghraris makes in the lives of young people from Immokalee through the foundation. Its pretty crazy, he said. We came here from Mexico with nothing. And now my sister is going to be a doctor. It seems that he is on his way to realizing his dream as well to work for a space exploration company like NASA. Economic development in Immokalee has lagged behind the rest of Collier County; in fact, nearly half of its residents live below the poverty line. It comes as no surprise, then, that 95 percent of students in the town are economically needy. Without financial help, attending college is usually out of the question. TIF began more than two decades ago to break the cycle of poverty and lack of educational opportunities for families of students like Mr. Vega and Ms. Hernandez. Today the foundation provides a range of programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences, and life skills development leading to economic independence.

A24 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 4-10, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Mental health is a community issue. Fortunately, theres a community solution. His Mind is Our Concern.Ron is among one in four in Collier County who suffer from a mental illness. One in ten of us will experience some form of substance abuse. When a family member, friend or coworker battles a mental health or substance abuse problem, we suffer with them. Thankfully, David Lawrence Center is here for our community. A not-for-prot organization founded and still governed by community leaders, the David Lawrence Center is the behavioral health component of our communitys healthcare network. A true local resource, it relies on donations, fees and grants to invest in the health, safety and wellbeing of our community. When you or someone you love needs help, call on the highly compassionate, committed and competent professionals of the David Lawrence Center to inspire you to move beyond the crisis towards life-changing wellness. Despite being a good student, Ron developed an intense fear of school and refused to go. Depressed and directionless, he abused alcohol and bounced between jobs, homes and towns. By the time he was 23, he had experienced the desperation of homelessness more than once, and had been in several Crisis Units. He was nally diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but without a job or housing, he had no plans. Then he made his way to DLC. DLC referred him to a shelter and into the Project for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness Program. They helped Ron enroll at FGCU for a degree in software engineering and secured nancial aid and campus housing. In just eight months, Ron is stable, sober and armed with the skills he needs to manage his illness. He now has a support system and plans for a bright future.

Offer Expires 2/11/16 Sooner than later might be better for trying to conceive after a loss NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHCouples who attempt to conceive within three months after losing an early pregnancy, defined as less than 20 weeks gestation, have the same chances, if not greater, of achieving a live birth than those who wait for three months or more, according to a National Institutes of Health study. This finding, published the in the most recent Obstetrics & Gynecology, questions traditional advice that couples should wait at least three months after a loss before attempting a new pregnancy. The World Health Organization, for example, recommends waiting a minimum of six months between a pregnancy loss and a subsequent attempt. Couples often seek counseling on how long they should wait until attempting to conceive again, said Enrique Schisterman, Ph.D., chief of the epidemiology branch at NIHs Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and senior author of the study. Our data suggest that women who try for a new pregnancy within three months can conceive as quickly, if not quicker, than women who wait for three months or more. Previous studies of pregnancy spacing have focused on when women should become pregnant after experiencing a loss, but few have addressed the question of when couples should start trying to conceive. In the current study, researchers analyzed data from the Effects of Aspirin in Gestation and Reproduction trial, a multisite block-randomized, doubleblinded, placebo-controlled trial that took place from 2007 to 2011. The trial, which evaluated the effect of daily lowdose aspirin on reproducti ve o utcomes in women with a history of pregnancy loss, enrolled 1,228 women aged 18 to 40 years. NICHD investigators concentrated on 1,083 of these women, more than 99 percent of who had lost a pregnancy at less than 20 weeks gestation. None of the women had either of two potential complications of pregnancy: a tubal (ectopic) pregnancy or a molar pregnancy (growth of abnormal fetal tissue in the uterus). The participants were followed for up to six menstrual cycles and, if they became pregnant, until the outcome of their pregnancy was known. The researchers found that more than 76 percent of the women attempted to conceive within three months after losing a pregnancy. Compared to those who waited longer, this group was more likely to become pregnant (69 percent vs. 51 percent) and to have a pregnancy leading to a live birth (53 percent vs. 36 percent). The investigators did not observe any increase in the risk of pregnancy complications in this group. While we found no physiological reason for delaying attempts at conception following a pregnancy loss, couples may need time to heal emotionally before they try again, said Karen Schliep, Ph.D., a postdoctoral fellow in the NICHD epidemiology branch at the time of the study and primary author of the study. For those who are ready, our findings suggest that conventional recommendations for waiting at least three months after a loss may be unwarranted. The NICHD sponsors research on development, before and after birth; maternal, child, and family health; reproductive biology and population issues; and medical rehabilitation. The NIH includes 27 institutes and centers and is a component of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. NIH is the primary federal agency conducting and supporting basic, clinical and translational medical research, and is investigating the causes, treatments and cures for both common and rare diseases.

Im proud to say both the newly renamed NCH Baker Hospital (formerly known as the NCH downtown hospital) and NCH North Naples Hospital were the only hospitals in Southwest Florida and two of the seven in Florida, along with Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, to receive the Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence this year. Healthgrades describes the recipients as in the top 5 percent for having the lowest risk-adjusted mortality and complication rates across at least 21 of 32 common conditions and procedures. According to Healthgrades, What differentiates these hospitals from the rest is while many hospitals have specific areas of expertise and high-quality outcomes for some conditions and procedures, these hospitals exhibit comprehensive and consistent quality across a range of conditions and procedures. Hospitals that won the award had a 27 percent lower in-hospital mortality rate compared with all other hospitals for 19 procedures and conditions for which mortality was the primary clinical outc ome. One area Healthgrades focused on was in improving sepsis (blood stream) mortality, which correlates with improved outcomes on other hospitalwide conditions. At NCH, the sepsis mortality over the past three years has dropped from the national average of about 30 percent to reliably less than 10 percent. We have been using predictive analytics with our partner Cerner to help us predict who will develop a blood stream infection so that we can intervene before the patient severely deteriorates. There is growing discussion about the excess of metrics and measurements in health care and the relative value and credibility of some of these ratings. NCH consistently ranks high allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org HEALTHY LIVING SEE WEISS, A29
in the most respected ratings. The most recent U.S. News & World Report ratings have us tied with Cleveland Clinic for ninth place in Florida; Leapfrog has given both of our campuses an A for the past 2 years. This consistency is what distinguishes us from others. Just as the three major bond rating agencies typically agree when evaluating a bond or a business, most reputable health-care rating agencies agree that NCH consistently demonstrates quality. And that should mean everything to the patients who depend on us. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.

FLAHARTY, MDTrust Your Face To Experience (239.415.7576Naples location!NEW NOW WELCOMING NEW PATIENTS BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickRemember the meet-cute scene in 01 Dalmatians, where the couples dogs bring them together? It happens in real life, too. Molly McNamara of Lyons, Colorado, met her husband-to-be, Jeff McGlynn, at the obedience class she was attending with her dog. It was love at first sight for her dog. My dog was so bananas for him that he wouldnt pay attention after Jeff arrived, she says. At first I used to just get mad when he and his dog showed up because my well-behaved 1-year-old bearded collie, Max, would lose his mind and drag me across the room to see them. So, clearly, the dog knew first. It took six months before the pair started dating, with many of the dates involving taking their dogs hiking or to the beach. McNamara discovered later that McGlynn was staying in the class only to see her. His Saint Bernard was already well-behaved and didnt really need the practice. Introduction by dog is a time-honored method of finding true l ove, and now science has confirmed its efficacy. In their study The Roles of Pet Dogs and Cats in Human Courtship and Dating, published in the quarterly journal Anthrozoos, researchers who surveyed more than 1,200 Match.com users found that 35 percent of women and 26 percent of men said they had been more attracted to someone because he or she owned a pet. Men are more likely to use a pet generally a dog as date bait, with 22 percent admitting to the tactic. Only 6 percent of women said they had used a pet to attract potential dates. Women, on the other hand, are more likely to rely on their dogs and cats as barometers of a dates trustworthiness. Nearly half of the women responding said they judged dates based on how the person responded to their pet, and 76 percent evaluated dates based on whether their pets liked the person. My dogs have helped me see who is and isnt a good match based on how the guys responded to the dogs, and vice versa, says Elizabeth Barden Ackerman of Los Angeles. The ones who are scared of my giant black Lab are quickly let go. The one who naturally pats and plays with him, refills his water bowl without being asked and who watches the dog and hilariously narrates his thoughts? Hes special. Allia Zobel Nolan of New York City knew the man she met was her true love because of the way he treated her cats, even though at heart he was a dog person. He loved me, so he loved my cats, she says. Gail Parker of Philadelphia stopped seeing one man after her dog, a German shepherd, growled at him. She gave another the heave-ho when he called her Irish setter stupid. The studys lead author, University of Nevada Las Vegas anthropology professor Peter Gray, suggests that pets status as family members could explain the significant influence they wield in the choices people make about who they date. He and fellow researchers, UNLV graduate student Shelly Volsche; Justin Garcia of the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University; and Helen Fisher of Rutgers University say dog ownership may signal a potential mates caregiving capacity. How a person treats a pet could indicate how he or she would treat a mate and children. McNamara and McGlynn? At their eventual wedding, more dogs than people were in attendance. Max is turning 14 in a month, and Jeff is still his most favorite human ever, McNamara says. In a recent survey of singles with pets, 75 percent of women and 54 percent of men said they would not date someone who did not like pets.

BACTERIUM LINKS GUM AND HEART DISEASESThere has been a great deal of discussion in recent years about the link between gum disease and heart disease. Now, researchers have found the culprit responsible for this link. e bacterium known as Porphyromonas gingivalis is well known to dentists and periodontists for causing the development of periodontitis, the serious form of gum infection that damages so tissues surrounding the teeth and attacks underlying bone. Teeth are oen lost as a result. Researchers recently found that P. gingivalis also changes the code of the genes in proteins responsible for boosting inammation and atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) in coronary arteries. is nding gives everyone more reason to conscientiously brush, oss, and guard against gum disease. Periodontal disease is oen silent, meaning symptoms may not appear until an advanced stage of the disease.

Mantikas, DMD, LLC A Practice For Optimal Dental Fitness T HE D IV A D I ARIESAnd then, one day, she quitI remember the morning of Jan. 27, 2011, quite clearly. I woke up, poured myself a cup of coffee, added some Splenda and headed toward the balcony to smoke my morning cigarette. Back then a cigarette came before everything else even brushing my teeth. It was a breezy, sunny morning when I took the first drag off my Marlboro Ultra Light 100 and began coughing violently. It was weird. After all, I was a hardcore veteran smoker. I had been smoking nearly two packs a day since I was 15 years old, when I started with Benson & Hedges Menthol 100s in the girls bathroom at Cypress Lake High School. There was a period between ages 18 and 20 when I shamelessly smoked filterless Lucky Strikes (Jessica Lange looked sexy smoking them in the movie Frances). Id smoked Marlboro Reds, Camels and Parliaments. Even when I had no money for food or gas, I still smoked (99 cent generic cigs that came in a plain white package at the Handy Mart). I drew the line at Winstons, though. Winstons were just gross. But even when I was in a bind and had to filch harsh, charcoal-filtered Tareytons from Moms purse, Id smoke. I was a professional smoker. So it made no sense to me that morning, five years ago, when smoking hurt my throat and my chest. I mean, I had always smoked, through strep throat and bronchitis; Id smoked after root canals and during sinus infections. Nothing could stop me from smoking. I smoked in my house, I smoked in my car. If I happened to be in places where I couldnt smoke, I left. I was once caught smoking behind a Port-a-Potty at an American Cancer Society event. I had smoke in my hair, on my clothes, on my breath and in my skin. And I didnt care. Granted, I always smoked a bit more when I drank, and the night before Jan. 27, 2011, I had hosted a girls night on my balcony where more wine than usual was consumed. But still, a slight hangover and an overflowing ashtray were not going to stop me from smoking. Once when I was in my late 20s and had WALKING PNEUMONIA, I still smoked. Which, as an aside, is why Im constantly baffled by anyone who refers to smoking as a habit. Biting your fingernails is a habit. Twirling your hair is a habit. Chewing gum is a habit. Sacrificing your health, friends, family and finances for a lethal drug nicotine is an addiction, not a habit. I blame that habit misunderstanding on the advertising genius that came up with the old Kick the Habit slogan (clearly someone who had never smoked sigh). Anyway, that morning five years ago, I just couldnt smoke. It hurt too much. I brushed my teeth, checked my email, put a load of laundry in the washer. I went back to the balcony again and lit up. It felt like daggers were going down my throat and into my lungs. I put the cigarette out. I was almost in tears but not because of the pain: I needed nicotine in my system and couldnt get it. I tried to smoke several more times that day with no success. Finally, before bed, I gave up. I had always wanted to quit, Id tried the patch, the gum, all of it with no success. Maybe something or someone much more powerful than me had finally taken it out of my control. That night, I put was what left of my pack of cigarettes under running water and threw the soggy mess in the trash. Last week, for my five-year anniversary as a nonsmoker, my husband took me out to a fancy dinner where we could sit inside, not outside. In the past five years, Ive gotten a new car that has never been smoked in, and we moved to a new condo where theres no smoking. Im being honest when I say I dont miss it and I think its crazy when I look back and realize how much health, time and money I burned away. When I see other folks smoking, Im fine with it because I know what addiction is like although sometimes Im tempted to tell them that if I was able to quit, ANYONE can. But I know they wouldnt take that well, so I never say it out loud. The other day when it was a bit chilly outside, I grabbed a jacket from the closet. When I got outside and put my hands in the pockets for warmth, I found a small handful of old cigarette butts in one (I never threw my butts on the ground, Id put them in my pocket if I couldnt find an ashtray). I took them out, looked at them and tried to remember that girl who smoked Marlboro Ultra Light 100s. I couldnt. I took a big, deep breath and threw the ancient butts in the nearest trashcan. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

First, you would never have to feel guilty about that second helping of ice cream as the gravitational forces would stretch you out so everyone would look like a long piece of spaghetti. In addition, you would never be late for anything because time would dramatically slow down and you can live what would seem like years in a matter of milliseconds. And who knows what other cool stuff you could experience as the laws of physics as we know it are completely suspended? Well, Japan has entered a financial black hole of sorts. Last week, the Bank of Japan imposed negative interest rates for the island nation, seemingly suspending all laws of finance as we know it. Does this mean that banks would actually pay borrowers to get a mortgage? What would the Central Bank hope to accomplish by doing this? And will Japanese negative rates have an effect on us here in the U.S.? First, what the Bank of Japan decreed has nothing to do with consumers, but instead changes the interest rate banks receive from depositing money with the Central Bank. To ensure that banks have enough capital in times of distress, almost all Central Banks mandate that banks keep reserves within the Central Banks. And if banks have excess funds they deposit those moneys in the Central Bank as well. What the BOJ stated was that those excess funds would earn a negative rate. In effect, banks that hoard money will be penalized.The BOJ instituted this extreme policy for a number of reasons. First, it hoped that it will give an added incentive to banks to take their capital and lend it out to consumers and businesses. Every excess dollar they keep at the Central Bank will earn a negative return so the thought is it will spur lending and thus the economy. Next, Japan is desperately trying to spur inflation of at least 2 percent within its country. Japan has been stuck in a deflationary cycle for the last several years, which has limited wage growth and domestic spending. Third, the BOJ hopes that extremely low rates will spur consumer spending and penalize savers. While retail banks will not charge consumers on checking and savings accounts, they will generally not pay an interest rate either. So maybe the Japanese people, who historically save a significant part of their income, will save less and spend more. Finally, Japan is cutting rates to lower the value of its currency. The Japanese economy is very dependant on exports, and lower rates translate into lower exchange rates, which mean lower cost goods for other countries and hopefully greater sales abroad.So what will be the result of this new BOJ policy? It is positive news for the U.S. consumer, as imported goods from Japan will be cheaper. But it definitely hurts U.S. companies that rely on exports to Japan as each yen will buy less of their products. And other countries that compete with Japan for exports, like South Korea and China, will certainly take note of this and probably try to push down their currencies to match Japans. This should push the U.S. dollar to even new highs in the years to come, which is also good for the U.S. stock market. Investors from around the world who expect their currency to weaken may shift their money to the U.S. to invest in order to take advantage of a strengthening currency here. So, while the BOJ announcement of negative rates last week is not an extremely significant event, it does highlight a very interesting phenomenon in the world. Namely, we are seeing a dramatic split between the U.S. and the rest of the world when it comes to currency and interest rate levels. Almost every Central Bank in the world is cutting interest rates and currency levels while in the U.S. the Fed is raising rates and strengthening the dollar. Who has the right policy? It will definitely be something to watch closely in the months and years ahead.

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 4-10, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY (800) 246-1129 www.bluecapitalcleaning.comOf ce Cleanings | Construction Cleanup | Floor Care the-box law that would prohibit employers from asking about criminal history on an initial employment application. Among the most potentially detrimental is a proposal to increase Floridas hourly minimum wage from $8.05 to $15. Whether these bills pass or not, these issues are not going away, says Christina Harris Schwinn, an attorney at Pavese Law Firm in Fort Myers who specializes in business and employment law and monitors proposed legislation that would impact businesses. The minimum wage issue is not going anywhere, no matter what the feds do. But the way the bill is written, it would gut the current structure we work with here in Florida. The bill mandates an hourly increase to $15 for all employees in Florida, including restaurant servers and other employees who compensate for below-minimum earnings with tips. Floridas minimum wage is calculated annually by the Department of Economic Opportunity based on the consumer price index, accounts for inflation and has been increasing on average 15 cents per year since 2005. It wasnt increased for 2016. I do think a bill will be passed but it needs to be phased in gradually, says Ms. Schwinn. Its artificially low but Im not sure $15 an hour is the number. Many of the proposed laws increase protections for employees who can be fired for any reason or no reason under Floridas employment-at-will doctrine. Employees dont feel like theyre being treated fairly in the workplace, Ms. Schwinn says. Processes need to be fair. If a process is fair, most employee can accept it. The healthy workplace initiative is gaining ground because it brings protection to those who dont have it. Right now, for example, for an employee to be protected from sexual harassment, Florida and federal civil rights acts apply only to businesses with 15 and more employees. Other bills that could impact businesses and employees include:Social media privacyThis bill aims to protect employees and potential job candidates by prohibiting businesses from asking for access to personal social media sites not available to the general public. A growing number of companies are using Facebook and social media as part of the job-hiring process and are also monitoring employees posts. The proposed law would ban employers from requesting access, taking retaliatory personnel action against employees who refuse, and create a process for civil action. The law does not affect job candidates or employees in law enforcement or prosecutorial positions or an employee who is the subject of a conduct investigation by police or prosecutors. Jim Wall, director of communications for CareerSource Southwest Florida, says the agency always addresses social media as part of its interview and job skills workshops for job candidates. More and more employers are looking at a potential employees social media sites, he says. Its such a common thing nowadays but many jobseekers dont realize companies do this. They think its their social media site and just dont realize who can have access. Social media skills are also becoming a more intricate part of prospective job duties, Mr. Wall says. A business wants to see what that person is doing on social media and individuals need to realize this. They need to watch the personal stuff they put up. The bottom line is, if you have things to hide, dont post it on social media. HR Florida State Council, representing more than 16,000 human resource professionals statewide, opposes the proposed bill. So, too, does Ms. Schwinn, who says access protects businesses and notes the bill, as written, doesnt provide necessary exemptions. There are circumstances when it is appropriate for an employer to ask for access, she says. An example would be allegations of sexual harassment and an employee who is using a Facebook page to do it. Its important to have exceptions. Its very standard in litigation now when an employee sues a company for the company to submit a discovery request for access to the employees social media. Equal rights and discriminationTwo bills and a resolution call for increased protection and equal rights for women and men and inclusion of language that would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. The resolution would ratify the proposed U.S. Constitutional amendment to ensure equal rights for men and women. One of the bills proposes revising Floridas Civil Rights Act to add sexual orientation and gender identity as protected characteristics and prohibit discrimination based on perceived race, color religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, handicap or marital status. While HR Florida supports the inclusion of sexual orientation and gender identity, it notes perceived characters could result in meritless claims against employers. There is discrimination in the workplace, Ms. Schwinn says. If youre with a group of people who are gay or lesbian and talk to them and listen, youll hear stories that will make your hair stand on end. The Helen Gordon Davis Fair Pay Protection Act, named for Hillsborough Countys first female state senator and an advocate for womens and minority rights, would step in for failed federal laws to ensure equal pay for women for equal work and implement a governors award recognizing Florida businesses that eliminate equal pay barriers. The bill notes women have entered the workforce in record numbers during the past 50 years and despite a federal act in 1963 continue to receive significantly lower wages as a result of intentional discrimination or the lingering effects of past discrimination. Providing equal pay for equal work would also reduce dependency on state and local public assistance programs, the bill claims. Opponents say the proposed legislation needs to be clarified to include legal channels and remedies for employees who file suit. We support equal pay and the award but as its written it creates ambiguity, says Ms. Schwinn. I would agree there still are situations in corporate America where women are not paid the same as their male counterparts. Current statistics comparing wages between men and women in similar positions include all sectors of business and commerce from professionals to management and manufacturing. The numbers are skewed, says Ms. Schwinn. There are circumstances where female doctors and lawyers outearn their male counterparts. These statistics lump everyone together. A woman in management may not be making the same because shes a trainee. The easiest area to enforce equal pay is in the manufacturing environment where employees on an assembly line are truly equal and doing the same job. The National Labor Relations Board prevents employers from taking action against employees who discuss their wages. Unless there are blatant violations, female employees are often afraid to rock the boat and be branded as a troublemaker, Ms. Schwinn says.Second chances for former felonsTwo proposals would improve employment opportunities for the 22,854 nonviolent felons released from Florida prisons during fiscal year 2013-14. Discrimination in Employment Screening, the ban the box proposal that has been submitted in various past incarnations, would eliminate public companies from asking on an initial employment application if an applicant has been convicted of a crime. Proponents contend checking the box prevents qualified employees from advancing in the hiring process. The bill claims eliminating the box would reduce recidivism, decrease unemployment rates in communities with a high concentration of people with a criminal history and improve economic stability. Its a good idea, says CareerSources Mr. Wall. Every individual should have the right to explain their circumstances face to face. If a criminal record absolutely bars someone from a particular job, then they shouldnt be applying. If youre convicted of a bank robbery, you probably should not be trying to get a job as a teller. Although organizations representing Florida businesses have supported ban the box in the past, the language of the current proposal fails to provide exceptions for those applying for jobs in law enforcement, health care and child care. CareerSource also assists in getting felons hired through bonding programs. It can relieve some pressure from the employer and takes away some of the liability to give someone a second chance, says Mr. Wall. Generally we can provide a bond if it leads to employment or someone already has a job in hand. A second bill will offer up to $1,000 in local tax credits to businesses that hire a felon upon his or her one-year employment anniversary. The tax credit is a good idea, Mr. Wall says. You have to look at the return on investment. If an individual is a drain on community resources, welfare and food stamps and is now working, theyre paying taxes and not using these programs. They also have the ability to purchase cars and homes. Nancy Kelly Scafuri, who owns Get Smart Bail Bonds, advocates any laws that help released felons. For convicted felons this late in the game, its really a struggle, she says. They cant get a job so they go back to what they were doing burglary, selling drugs. Its a revolving door. What needs to happen at some level is some kind of program to make employers aware not all convicted felons are bad people and some do need a second chance. Many of her clients are skilled plumbers, carpenters and roofers. The problem is they dont have much to look forward to after their release, Ms. Scafuri says. Its like they have a scarlet F. The tax credit makes it financially positive for employers to hire a felon. In her off time, Ms. Scafuri, a retired teacher, combs employment websites trying to match clients with potential jobs. I want to show employers convicted felons can be their best employers, she said. It just takes one company to do this and set a trend. HR Florida opposes the legislation because, as written, it contains too may exceptions and would not create the intended incentive in hiring. BILLSFrom page 1

BY GRAY POEHLERQ: I am in the process of organizing a new business and want to be sure that the name I select is unique and is trademark protected. What do you suggest? A: Registering a trademark for a company name is not a complicated process. The U.S Patent and Trademark office web site is uspto.gov. Before completing the online registration form, check the sites Trademark Electronic Search System database to make sure another company hasnt registered an identical or similar mark for the same goods or services you offer. In order to get the broadest protection, dont designate a specific design of your trademark. Also, refrain from registering names that are too generic (Lawn Care Specialists, for example). For more advice, consult a trademark lawyer. At this juncture it is worth noting that your name should, ideally, describe the type of goods or services you provide. FGP Enterprises says nothing to the consumer. Better you call yourself FGP Insurance Consultants. If you intend to do business through a website, you should seriously consider getting your own Internet domain. Its easy and inexpensive. Godaddy.com is the worlds largest domain registrar. You can obtain a dot com name for just $9.99 per year. Your Internet domain name should be the same as your business name. If you do not have web host, you can use the domain registration to park your name at a temporary site while you develop your website. Another good reason to get a domain is if you switch web hosts you do not have to inform your clients about a change in URL. They just type in your domain name and will be directed to your new site. While you can trademark your business and Internet domain name yourself, for a modest price, you may wish to seek out an attorney familiar with both in the event you run into problems with other businesses with similar names. In the long run, its cheaper to pay for these services than to find out, after the fact, that someone is suing you for encroaching on their trademarks.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Bonds 101If youre going to invest in stocks or bonds, its good to understand just what they are. A share of stock represents an ownership stake in a company, while a bond is essentially a loan from you to a government or company. Bonds sold by the U.S. governments Treasury Department are called Treasuries. State and local governments issue municipal bonds, while businesses issue corporate bonds (sometimes referred to as paper). Sturdy governments and healthy companies can offer lower interest rates, but some companies have to offer high-interest-rate junk bonds to attract buyers willing to bear their higher risk of default. Bond investors receive regular interest payments from the issuer at the stated coupon rate. For example, if you buy a $1,000 bond with a coupon rate of 10 percent, youll receive payments of $100 per year. When the bond matures after perhaps five, 10 or 30 years youll get back the par value, $1,000. Most corporate bonds have a par value of $1,000, while government bonds can run much higher. Sometimes a company will call its bond, paying back the principal early. All bonds specify whether and how soon they can be called. Federal government bonds are never called. You dont have to buy a bond at issue and hang on through maturity. Once issued, bonds can be traded among investors, with their prices rising and falling in relation to prevailing interest rates. When the current rate is low, prices of older bonds with higher interest rates tend to rise because the bonds are more attractive in comparison. And if banks are offering 1 percent, a 3 percent bond can look good, too. With much or most of your long-term money, though, stick with stocks, which tend to outperform bonds. According to New York University professor Aswath Damodaran, from 1928 through 2015, long-term government bonds averaged an annual return of 5.0 percent, while the S&P 500 averaged 9.5 percent. Still, bonds have their place, such as by diversifying portfolios and offering relatively guaranteed returns. Broker and BrokerBack in the 1990s, I was a nervous new investor, so I sought the advice of a local broker. He recommended investing in the IPO of Golden Books, as it had been around a long time and was now putting its books on VHS tapes. He added that it was a great time to get in on the ground floor. Excited, I spent much of my available money on shares of Golden Books Family Entertainment. Two weeks later, the Golden Books stock price was down 50 percent or so. I called the broker and he said to hold on, because new stocks are volatile and it was coming back. I held on another two weeks just to see it get cut in half again. Upset at that point, I called him back only to find out he no longer worked there. Over time I lost everything in Golden Books. I remembered an old saying: A broker will only make you broker. Dennis, onlineThe Fool Responds: Some brokers can serve you very well, but not all are smart, skilled or looking out for your best interests. Its usually best to steer clear of initial public offerings (IPOs) for a year or so, as average investors rarely get to buy the shares at their relatively low initial price. They end up buying at higher prices and many times end up underwater a few months later. Mind the GapIf youre seeking a slow and steady grower, try apparel retailer Gap (NYSE: GAP) on for size. With 3,000-plus stores on several continents and a market value recently near $10 billion, its brands include Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta and Intermix. The stock has lost ground over the past year, in part due to shrinking revenue, but that just makes it more attractive to believers. Gap has been transforming itself over the past decade, drawing more consumers to its brands. It has emphasized its direct-to-consumer sales, and it made the aggressive move in 2012 to go outside the company for executive help, hiring Liz Meltzer, whod previously been the senior vice president of merchandising at Uniqlo, and Jill Stanton, who was formerly the vice president of global apparel for Nike, and is now the interim president of Old Navy. Much of Old Navys positive transformation this decade can be credited to Stantons influence.It remains to be seen whether the Gap and Banana Republic brands can be revived as successfully as Old Navy, but the potential is there. Gap isnt quite firing on all cylinders yet, but its poised to deliver modest long-term growth. With a price-toearnings (P/E) ratio recently in the single digits, it sports an appealing valuation, too. Better still, the company pays a solid dividend that recently yielded 4.1 percent. I trace my roots back to 1968, when two fellows left an established semiconductor company to found a new one. One of them created the first siliconbased integrated circuit, while the other famously predicted that the number of transistors that fit in a silicon microchip would continue to double every two years. Today Im the worlds biggest chip maker, with a market value near $150 billion and annual revenue topping $55 billion. My stock has grown by an annual average of nearly 16 percent over the past 30 years and my net profit margins top 20 percent. Who am I? (Answer: Intel) By the BookQCan you explain what a companys book value is? D. M., Canton, OhioAAn accounting concept, book value suggests a companys value according to its balance sheet. To calculate it, start with the total assets and then subtract total liabilities and intangible assets, such as goodwill, patents and trademarks. Book value used to roughly reflect a companys intrinsic value, as most assets, such as factories and land, were capital-intensive and appeared on the balance sheet. But times have changed. With Americas economy more service-oriented, book value is less relevant for investors.Consider Facebook. Its book value was recently near $32 billion, far from its market value of $270 billion. Much of its value stems from assets and competitive advantages that dont register significantly on the balance sheet: intellectual property, employees, a strong brand and a massive network of customers worldwide. Its promising future isnt reflected in its book value, either. (The Motley Fool has recommended and owns shares of Facebook.)Next imagine a company that owns many buildings. Over the years, their value on the balance sheet is depreciated, eventually to zero. Theyre not really worth zero, though, and they can even appreciate over time. This company can also be worth much more than its book value. With many companies, youd do well to largely ignore book value. ***QWhats profit-taking? W.A., Ravenel, South CarolinaAIts what happens when some investors sell their shares of a stock after it has risen considerably, perhaps wanting to move the proceeds into some other investments. If many investors sell their shares, this will have the effect of depressing the stocks price for a while. Thats why you might sometimes hear that a certain stock is down due to profit-taking.

The NARs pending home sales index, a forward-looking indicator based on contract signings, crawled 0.1 percent to 106.8 in December from a downwardly revised 106.7 in November and is now 4.2 percent above December 2014 (102.5). The index has increased year-over-year for 16 consecutive months. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says contract activity closed out the year on stable footing but lost some momentum, except for in the Northeast. Warmer than average weather and more favorable inventory conditions compared to other parts of the country encouraged more households in the Northeast to make the decision to buy last month, he said. Overall, he added, while sustained job creation is spurring more activity compared to a year ago, the ability to find available homes in affordable price ranges is difficult for buyers in many jobcreating areas. With homebuilding still grossly inadequate, steady price appreciation and tight supply conditions arent going away any time soon. Although healthy labor market conditions will persuade more households to buy, Mr. Yun said, it is possible that overall demand could be somewhat curtailed in coming months. The stock markets sizeable losses since the start of the year and the effect slowing manufacturing activity is having in some areas especially in the energy sector could cause some to hold off on buying. The silver lining from the market turmoil in recent weeks is the fact that mortgage rates have slightly declined, he said. Buyers looking to close on a home before spring might be rewarded with a mortgage rate at or below 4 percent.

His recent recording with renowned saxophonist Ed Calle won the 2015 Latin Grammy for Best Instrumental Album.

The orchestra is led by musical director and jazz drummer Bob Stone.

In a salute to truth in advertising, Ms. Pearce booked the Metropolitan Operas legendary bass-baritone Samuel Ramey. Apparently not satisfied with just one legend, she then added a special guest, a legend in the making: Bonita Springs resident Michael Fabiano. He recently received rave reviews for his debut at the Royal Opera House in London as Lensky in Tchaikovskys Eugene Onegin. For Legends of Opera, Gulfshore Opera is offering tickets to hear the pair as well as rising stars Ola Rafalo and Gustavo Feulien for as little as $25 a ticket.

So if your bucket list includes an exploration of opera, you just happened upon the perfect time to fill that pail. Samuel Ramey is one of the most recognized opera personalities of my lifetime, Ms. Pearce, who is general/artistic director of the fledgling Gulfshore Opera, now in its second season. I have watched his work with other great singers over the last 30 years. He is always thrilling as a singer and an actor. Not only that, she adds, He has a warm and charming personality. As for Mr. Ramey, he says he has always considered opera the ultimate art form: You can go to the opera and see everything: orchestral music, ballet, solo and choral music. For many, he is considered one of the music worlds foremost interpreters of bass and bass-baritone operatic and concert repertoire. In 1992, he sang all four of Offenbachs villains at the Metropolitan Operas opening night of The Tales of Hoffman, a feat that prompted one critic to write: [It was] the best interpretation of the four villains I can remember in the last 25 years. It has also been said that the unique expressiveness of Mr. Rameys bass voice has inspired many composers to assign the portrayal of devils and villains to basses in general. Mr. Ramey has essentially elevated the portrayal of the bad guy to an art form. However, spend time with him and Mr. Rameys deep dulcet tones reveal a kind man one with a big heart and a great appreciation for the opportunities that have come his way. The native of Colby, Kan., recalls: I sang growing up. I was singing constantly. I sang all through high school, but I really didnt know what opera was at that point. As a student at Kansas State University, he adds, My teacher started me working on an aria from The Marriage of Figaro. That sparked my interest in opera. Igniting that universal spark is part of Gulfshore Operas goal: to meet the demands of operas established local fan base as well as to provide a platform of discovery for the rest of us. To that end, the company presents its regular-season programs in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties. Mr. Ramey had to leave college to earn money so he could continue his education. When he learned of the Central City Opera in Colorado, he says, I went to my local radio station in Colby and made a tape and they took me. I found myself on stage performing in opera before I had ever seen an opera. His connections at Central City Opera led to a transfer to Wichita State University. And in a comment that mirrors the plotline of an MGM movie musical, he says, When I finished my degree in Wichita, I got on a Greyhound and went to New York. Needless to say, that bus ride worked out well. To attempt to list Rameys illustrious accomplishments would be a disservice to Mr. Ramey and the opera-going public. After all, thats why we have Google. Lets just say that when it comes to reaching the pinnacle of the opera world, Mr. Ramey has been there and done that with great finesse and incomparable flair. Now 74 years old, hes back in Wichita and teaching at his alma mater. In his words, he has come full circle. For her part, Ms. Pearce is thrilled to add Mr. Ramey to her circle of opera legends. He and Mr. Fabiano will perform the Act I scene of Gounods Faust, with Mr. Ramey singing the role of Mephistopheles and Mr. Fabiano as Faust. This is one of Rameys most famous roles, Ms. Pearce says. And Michael is singing the role of Faust all over the world, she adds. Mr. Ramey says his goal for those who attend Legends of Opera is that they will become interested in coming back to see more opera. I want to light a fire under them. Legends of Opera on Sunday, Feb. 21, will begin at 4 p.m. with a concert at First Presbyterian Church in Bonita Springs. A limited number of $25 sponsored tickets are available. The gala evening will continue with dinner at the Bonita Bay Club; tickets for $175 include VIP seating at the concert and a meet-and-greet with the performers.

(239) 649-2275 FLO RIDA W RITERSPop culture comedy classic flays Floridas foibles Coconut Cowboy by Tim Dorsey. William Morrow. 336 pages. Hardback, $25.99. This is No. 19 in the Serge Storm series, but whos counting? Tim Dorseys longrunning series gets nuttier and nuttier, but whos complaining? The author is probably not crazy, but he is certifiable, as is his main character Serge and Serges sidekick, Coleman. Coleman never met an intoxicant he didnt like. Serge is a bit more discriminating or he pretends to be. You want some laughs as the expense of Floridas dignity? This your chance. Where is the American Dream? That is the question that Serge, sometimes underemployed as a serial killer, has set for himself and his comrade. They hope to find it in the past; in particular, in the idealistic and idealized 1960s. How do you get to the past? You get off the highways and onto the back roads that take you through small town America. And how do you make this trip? Just like the Easy Rider searchers did: on motorbikes. In this case, its a motorbike with a sidecar. The author pays exquisite, zany, and yet sincere homage to the aforementioned classic film of the American counterculture, with Serge casting himself and Coleman as the films Captain America and Billy. What they find in the small towns they sample is corruption. And because Serge and his creator are obsessive Floridaphiles, they find a ton of that small town corruption in the novels major creation: Wobbly, Fla. Wobbly is at once the exemplary American small town, though not a positive example, and the quintessence of Mr. Dorseys rural Florida. Whats going on? Well, the first homes in a new housing development are disappearing into sinkholes attributed to subterranean aquifer pumping gone wild. Engineering reports and insurance issues and investigations of wrongdoing reach the highest circles which in a small town are not very high. Its all about who pays off whom to get away with what. Money accumulated for that special kind of laundering that is illegal is found buried. Narcotics have brought the money into Wobbly, but how is it going to get out? And in whose pockets? The city leaders, notably the mayor, have managed a narrow land annexation that has been put to good economic use as a speed trap. But whose economy has been enhanced? There are no reliable financial accounts or reporting procedures. There are no audits when nothing is available to audit. Hey, its a way of life, and Serge celebrates it. Freedom from accountability. The American Dream? We hope not. Mr. Dorsey adds a fine touch when he has Serge and Coleman include a third seeker on their tour to the good old days. A Princeton student who sees a grand thesis in Serges aspirations, Matt wants to tag along, take notes and do some research along the way. The two older men take advantage of him, but his enthusiasm and innocence register well against the cynicism and sarcasm that dominate much of the novel. There is, indeed, something to study here. There is also a large chorus of colorful subordinate characters that quite effectively bring Wobbly to life. Perhaps the best way to enjoy Coconut Cowboy is to read it as an astute and often hilarious cultural travelogue. This excerpt is the short form: A chopped motorcycle with a coconut gas tank roared through the horseriding country of River Rise Preserve. The rolling route south from the Suwannee music park had been town after small town: Lake City, Mason, Ellisville, High Springs. Peanut stands, tomato stands, baskets of peaches, sweet corn, decorate gourds, Moose Lodge, Kiwanis, Optimists, someones front yard selling birdhouses that looked like small red barns, another selling carved wooden flamingos with wings that turned like propellers, a sheriffs car hiding behind a billboard to TAKE BACK AMERICA, a diner called the Cracker Kitchen bragging about the shrimp and grits, something that appeared to be a cemetery but was a tombstone outlet. Then there are all those silly people, easy to laugh at and profoundly understood.

Odds are, if youre familiar at all with the Great American Songbook, youve heard a Johnny Mercer tune or two, or three or likely more. He wrote songs for 100 movies and 23 musicals. He won an Oscar for Best Song four times and was nominated 18 times. Moon River? Those are his lyrics. Also Days of Wine and Roses, Charade, Come Rain or Come Shine, That Old Black Magic, Skylark, In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening. He also wrote the lyrics to Blues in the Night (known by some by its opening line, My Mama done told me.) These are just a handful of the songs youll hear at Too Marvelous For Words: A Salute to Johnny Mercer, playing at Florida Repertory Theatres ArtStudio Stage. It sold out for a few weeks and has been extended a week so it now runs through March 13. (Its possible the run will be extended yet again and ticket prices might rise.) Conceived, written and directed by Robert Cacioppo, Florida Reps producing artistic director, the show is a true labor of love. It contains 40-plus songs, all by Mr. Mercer and performed by six singers who seem to love the music just as much Mr. Cacioppo does. Throughout the revue, you get some history about the lyricist/songwriter/ singer, but Mr. Cacioppo took care not to overload the show with narrative. We learn that Mr. Mercer co-founded and was president of Capitol Records, which recorded artists such as Peggy Lee, Margaret Whiting, Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra. Were also told he had an on-again off-again love affair with Judy Garland for three decades, despite being 13 years her senior and married. She inspired some of his greatest love songs. Dave Edwards, who narrates as well as sings, sketches out the life of Mr. Mercer with a minimum of lines. The emphasis is on the music. And what sweet music it is! Its enough to make you swoon. Mr. Mercer collaborated with a number of composers, among them Jerome Kern, Henry Mancini, Harold Arlen, and Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. In the beginning of Act I, when Julie Kavanagh sings Im Old Fashioned (Im old fashioned/I love the moonlight), you agree with her. She delivers the song with simplicity and a purity of emotion. As she sings, your heart agrees: Yes, you too love the moonlight and sighing sighs and holding hands and everything that makes up the lyrics of a good, old-fashioned love song. So many revues are schlocky, corny affairs. Too Marvelous avoids clichs and presents the music in its best light. Joe Bigelow, Soara-Joye Ross and Mr. Edwards join Ms. Kavanagh as the basic four singers. Michael McAssey, who plays grand piano and wrote the arrangements, and James David Larson, who plays upright bass, back them, but also join them in singing, even coming out from behind their instruments on occasion. Mr. McAssey pairs up with Mr. Edwards on a silly, vaudeville-esque Top Banana, and Mr. Larson delivers a solo as an Elvis wannabe on GI Jive, accompanying himself on stand-up bass. Each performer has his or her moment in the spotlight. Mr. Edwards electrifies with Accentuate the Positive, a song inspired by a Father Divine sermon, singing with a gospel fervor and evangelical zeal. (Kudos to choreographer Arthur DAlessio, whose moves add enormously to the pleasure of the songs.) Mr. Edwards grabs the song with both hands and doesnt let go. Dont mess with Mr. Inbetween, he exhorts, as if warning Christians from the sin of being lukewarm. Ms. Ross brings down the house with her sultry solo of Anyplace I Hang My Hat is Home. She has a big, rich voice, and knows how to use it. (She also gets to solo on Skylark, with her voice full of longing, and both I Wonder What Became of Me and Day In-Day Out have a hint of sorrow and regretfulness that shadows her words. In Beautiful Baby (You must have been a beautiful baby), Ms. Kavanagh perches on top of the grand piano as if she were born to be there. Mr. Bigelow and Ms. Kavanagh make a splendid couple as they share duets on Pardon My Southern Accent and Somethings Gotta Give, in which they also rule the dance floor.The revue opens with a series of train songs, or songs in which trains are mentioned. The lighting, which I think was meant to be moody, needs some tweaking, as the singers were often left in the shadows. As the show gathers speed, the six solo and sing together in various combinations. And soon, as spectacular as each song is, the next one seems to top it. Some are so wonderful, I wanted to clap my hands and like a toddler insist, Again! Sing it again! For example, theres Moon River, with the entire company singing and harmonizing. It starts out a cappella before Mr. Larson joins in, lightly strumming on guitar. It is sheer perfection, breathtaking. And Jeepers Creepers presents all four men singing together and accompanying themselves on ukuleles. These performances are so incredible, I wish they were on iTunes, so I could listen to them over and over. The audience was highly familiar with many of the tunes, especially the ones in Act II, so much so that they couldnt help themselves and began singing along on the chorus of Goody Goody. (Mr. Mercer wrote two of the best revengeafter-being-dumped songs: I Wanna Be Around and Goody Goody.) Mr. Mercers skillful lyrics make use of slang and the vernacular of his time buddy, flippin and amigo but they never sound forced. Just look at the title Jeepers Creepers and the lyrics that then refer to eyes as peepers. He must have had fun writing Strip Polka, which seems to be a play on the phrase strip poker. (Yes, the song is a polka about a stripper.) His lyrics are conversational, yet eloquent. And achingly romantic. In Moon River, he sings about my huckleberry friend, and in Days of Wine and Roses about a closing door/a door marked nevermore/That wasnt there before, that door that appears in our consciousness at some point in adulthood as we become aware of our own mortality. The set by Tim Billman is simple and elegant, with a blue curtain across the back and a grand piano center stage. Phrases from various Johnny Mercer songs are painted on the remaining three walls. Dina Perez designed the costumes, which consist of glamorous gowns and tuxes in Act II. Too Marvelous For Words is well worth seeing, a love letter to a man who wrote the most expressive love songs. I wouldnt be surprised if some go back a second time to experience these exquisite songs all over again.Nancys pickBe sure not to miss The Amish Project, a Theatre Conspiracy production playing at Florida SouthWestern State College (through Feb. 7.) It is, quite simply, one of the best locally produced plays Ive seen. The play by Jessica Dickey is a fictionalized retelling of the 2006 Nickel Mines, Penn., incident when a milkman took 10 Amish schoolgirls hostage in their schoolhouse, shot them all and killed himself. Tera Nicole Millers performance in this one-woman show is stunning, as she embodies seven different people involved in a tragedy. I know the subject matter may give some pause, but dont let it deter you. There is also much humor and joy in The Amish Project. And unspeakable grace. Ms. Millers performance is powerful and flawless; there is not one false note.

For example, consider this deal from a team-of-four match. Souths opening notrump bid at the first table was certainly off the beaten track, since he had two doubletons, a six-card suit and no true stoppers in spades or diamonds. Norths six-club response was optimistic in the extreme, but in the actual case the club slam would have succeeded with the aid of a spade finesse had South seen fit to pass that response. But South misinterpreted the six-club bid given his club holding, it seemed unlikely to him that his partner could have a genuine club suit. Since he and his partner had agreed to play transfer bids, he mistakenly decided that North was asking him to bid the next higher-ranking suit, so he bid six diamonds. Realizing that South had misunderstood the six-club bid, North retreated to six notrump. West led a spade, and declarer had no option but to play low from dummy. After winning with the queen and cashing his clubs and hearts, declarer took a second spade finesse to bring the slam home for a score of 1,440 points. At the second table, South became declarer at three notrump, rather than six, and West had no trouble finding the normal lead of his fourth-best diamond. East-West quickly collected five diamond tricks, so South went down one for a loss of 100 points. Were not sure if theres a moral here, so well just say that sometimes the scales of justice seem to be tipped the wrong way.

The story feels honest and realistic, and Ms. Rampling deserves her Oscar nomination (note how she emotes with her body and face, not just her words). Rated R. Kung Fu Panda 3 1/2(Voices of Jack Black, J.K. Simmons, Angelina Jolie) With the villain Kai (Mr. Simmons) stealing the Chi of kung fu masters everywhere, its up to Po (Mr. Black) to save the day. Its a by-the-numbers sequel thats silly and fun enough to keep kids entertained for 95 minutes. Rated PG.13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi (John Krasinski, James Badge Dale, Pablo Schreiber) With the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, under attack in September 2012, six ex-military hired guns hold their ground. The film feels gritty and real, and is better because the visual effects are kept to a minimum, which is a surprise from director Michael Bay (Transformers). Rated R. The Revenant 1/2(Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Will Poulter) Fur trapper Hugh Glass (Mr. DiCaprio) is left for dead by his fellow hunters after hes mauled by a bear. The cinematography is fantastic and Mr. DiCaprio and Mr. Hardy give standout performances, but theres a harsh unpleasantness about it that makes you feel like you need a shower when its over. Rated R.The Hateful Eight 1/2(Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh) Eight scoundrels are trapped inside a Wyoming log cabin during a blizzard, and not all make it out alive. Writer/director Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained) overwrites and underedits, but darn if there isnt something deliciously cinematic about it. Rated R.Joy (Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper) With her personal and professional life a mess, Joy (Ms. Lawrence) invents a Miracle Mop that becomes a huge sensation if her family doesnt screw it up for her. Writer/director David O. Russell (American Hustle) usually imbues his movies with a flair that makes them burst with life and energy, but thats oddly missing here. Rated PG-13.Carol 1/2(Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Kyle Chandler) In the 1950s, Carol (Ms. Blanchett), whos about to divorce her husband (Chandler), finds herself attracted to a department store clerk (Ms. Mara) whos unsure of what she wants. The performances, costume and production design, and musical score make this one of the best films of 2015. Rated R. FILM CAPSULES

Bitter, frosty, wet, nasty cold on the high seas thats so omnipresent youll want to bundle up in fear of catching the sniffles. Fear. Such an easy word to throw around and use lightly. No doubt the Coast Guard men who ventured through a blizzard, pounding ocean waves and pouring rain more than 10 miles offshore to rescue the crew of a shipwrecked oil tanker felt fear. How couldnt they? But duty prevailed in the face of fear, and the inspiring story of The Finest Hours is the result. The main character in rescue-oriented stories usually has one driving emotion that keeps him going; Chris Pines (Star Trek) Bernie Webber has two. One is his recent engagement to local girl Miriam (Holliday Grainger), whom hes been dating for a few months, and the other is a failed rescue mission during a storm a year earlier that still haunts him. So no points for subtlety for director Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl), even if these facts are taken from the true story on which the movie is based. Its February 1952 in Massachusetts, and a horrible storm is pounding the coast off Cape Cod. When an oil tanker literally splits in half, Coast Guarders Bernie, Richard Livesey (Ben Foster), Andy Fitzgerald (Kyle Gallner) and Ervin Maske (John Magaro) venture out for the rescue. They know it will not be easy getting to the ship through a torrential downpour and 70-foot waves, let alone rescuing the 32 survivors of the wreck. But they trust their training, throw caution and good sense to the wind, and do their duty on a small lifeboat. We gotta go out, we dont have to come back, Bernie says before they leave, acknowledging the dangers of the mission. Mr. Gillespie also intercuts the crew of the oil tanker, bravely led by Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck), as they grow more anxious and restless trying to keep their ship afloat. In some ways their situation has to be worse because they have no way of signaling for help, and its mere hours before the tanker will sink. The tension here is certainly understandable; thankfully, it never feels contrived for the sake of drama. Believe me, this story doesnt need any more drama than it already has. Speaking of which, theres a bit too much of Miriam on shore causing a distraction for the films own good and, yes, it seems like a Hollywood version of events rather than what was probably the real thing. However, the action is impressive and nicely accentuated by the 3D, so The Finest Hours is worth it for the upcharge. And if nothing else, a solid story about courage and true heroism is always good for the soul. M r g d r B t dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> I had the honor of speaking with three members of the Coast Guard who attended a preview screening of The Finest Hours. To a man they all agreed that the way events played out on screen felt truthful and authentic, and they all enjoyed the lm.

The planned gift will be disbursed over the next five years and makes the Denisons and Bunches founding members of Florida Reps newly minted society that aims to sustain the future of live theater in Southwest Florida through planned giving and support from individuals who care deeply about perpetuating Florida Reps mission and outreach goals. This is a transformational gift, said Florida Rep founder and producing artistic director Robert Cacioppo, and because it comes when we are in a strong financial position, were able to use these funds to improve the quality of our work, invest in the stability of the organization well into its future and enhance current programming for both theater-goers and young people all over Southwest Florida. We want Florida Rep to be here for decades to come continuing to serve this community in bigger and better ways, and this incredibly generous pledge allows us to focus on laying the foundation for our next phases of growth. More than 85,000 theatergoers see Florida Reps work every year, and in 2015 its education and outreach programming reached a record 22,000 young people up from 11,000 the year before thanks to more than 1,200 donors. Some of the plans for the companys future growth and artistic enhancement have already begun to take shape. In the fall, Florida Rep allocated roughly $350,000 of the new funds to purchase and begin to build out a 5,000 squarefoot commercial space in downtown Fort Myers at 2401 First Street. Two custom rehearsal and classroom spaces are being built. A second phase of this development, which requires an additional fundraising goal of $250,000, will be for office space for the administrative staff. The first phase of the build-out, to be completed this winter, includes a 1,000-square-foot rehearsal space large enough to rehearse productions set to move to the historic Arcade Theatre, and a 500-square-foot space that will double as a classroom and a smaller rehearsal hall for ArtStage Studio Theatre productions. It is game-changing for this company to own a dedicated and custom-built set of rehearsal halls, Mr. Cacioppo said. After 18 years of renting spaces too small or that required compromise to work in efficiently, we are finally in control of our own destiny. For more information on how to give to Florida Reps Heirloom Society, contact Renee Pesci at 332-4665, ext. 2016, or visit floridarep.org.

C18 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 4-10, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY new yearround service to Cancun, Mexico KOVEL: ANTIQUESHand-painted vases still captivate collectors BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELChina painting was an important artistic talent in past centuries. Although single color transfer designs were developed and used by the late 1700s, they lacked the color and graceful lines that were possible if the ceramic was decorated by hand. Today, the work of exceptional painters brings much higher prices than other pieces by the same factory. Shirayamadani (1865-1948) was a Japanese artist at Rookwood Pottery in Cincinnati. Rudolph T. Lux (1815-1868) decorated white porcelain with portraits ordered by important politicians and businessmen in New Orleans, and William Powell (working 1900 to 1950) was famous for painting English birds on porcelains made by Royal Worcester. In the first part of the 1900s, painting ceramics was a hobby and sometimes a job of talented housewives. There were magazines like Keramic Studio, published by Adelaide Alsop Robineau that featured pictures and instructions and even furnished patterns. Large makers of dinnerware and decorative porcelains often had a team of young women who put patterns on plates or sometimes, painted original landscapes or floral designs. A Royal Worcester vase from the early 1900s was decorated with a picture of wetlands and two egrets in soft colors and gilded trim. It is marked with the green Royal Worcester England mark and the initials WHB. It also is signed W. Powell by the painter. The 12-inch-tall vase sold in 2015 for $1,180. Q: Is a scrapbook filled with valentines from the 1920s worth anything? Its so old the pages are crumbling. A: Most old valentines sell for $1 to $10 depending on design, rarity and condition. If the valentines are glued to the pages, they are worth even less. Those with moving parts sell for more. Q: I have a small wash table with a metal tag on it that rea ds The Ross Table Wash-Stand, Patented, Manufactured by Forest City Furniture Co., Rockford, Ill. It has a hinged lid with a mirror on the inside of the lid and compartments to hold things. There is a shelf below. When was this made and what it might be worth? A: Forest City Furniture Co. was in business in Rockford from 1869 to 1919. L.P. Ross was granted a patent for William Powell, a famous painter of birds, decorated this Royal Worcester vase that sold for $1,180 at a May 2015, Brunk auction in Asheville, N.C.

The compartments in the washstand are meant to hold the bowl and pitcher, and there is a removable compartment for waste water. The shelf holds soap and towels. Your washstand is worth about $400. Q: Are printed paper bags from closed stores really collectible, and are they popular? I saw a D. H. Holmes bag on eBay for $40. A: Collectors like shopping bags with interesting graphics or from particular stores. Some collectors hang them on the wall like paintings. Paper shopping bags with handles were first made in 1912. Some shopping bags are considered works of art. More than 100 bags were exhibited at the Smithsonians CooperHewitt Museum in New York City in 1978. The museum now owns over 1,000 bags. Bloomingdales won awards for its series of shopping bags designed by wellknown artists, designers and architects in the 1980s. You can find vintage shopping bags online and at house sales. Q: I have a National cash register in British currency. There is a tag on it with the numbers 2490973 and below that 745. It has wooden case, a marble slab above the drawer and is in very nice condition. What is its approximate value? A: National Cash Register was founded in Dayton, Ohio, in 1884. Brass cash registers were made from the 1890s to about 1918. Flat metal cases stamped and painted to look like wood were made beginning about 1918. The larger number on your cash register is the serial number. It indicates the cash register was made in early 1926, so its not actually wood but metal painted to look like wood. National Cash Register had a factory in England and registers with amounts listed in British pounds were made there. The company became NCR Corporation in 1974 and moved to Duluth, Georgia, in 2009. It is still in business. Collectors pay the highest prices for the old, ornately decorated brass cash registers in good condition. Metal with simulated wood grain cash registers sell for about $200 or less. British currency numbers will lower the value. Q: We inherited a large collection of toothbrush holders, about 250 pieces. Wed like to sell them. How can we contact possible collectors? A: If you have figural toothbrush holders, not the kind with just holes for toothbrushes made for a modern bathroom, you can sell them. Dealers must find and buy the things they sell, so go online to see who is selling toothbrush holders. People who sell toothbrush holders first have to buy them. If they are uncommon and priced right, porcelain toothbrush holders also sell at auctions. Tip: Phillips screws were introduced in the 1920s, a good clue to dating furniture. But remember, sometimes old screws have been replaced with newer ones. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

They were wrong, and heres why. It all comes down to context, according to nationally known appraiser Tim Luke, who shook his head when my mom told him she was surprised Shirley Temple dolls had not risen in value. The youngest of the people for whom Temple and Durbin were household names are well into their 70s. Thats past the age when many people still are acquiring pieces for their collections, Mr. Luke said. Temple dolls were made in the hundreds of thousands over the course of several decades, and Durbin dolls certainly were made in the tens of thousands in their day, so collectors who had nostalgia for that type of doll already had purchased them, and the market is about to be flooded with them as those collectors downsize or die. A Durbin doll that fetched $300 a decade ago may fetch about half that today; its the same with the Temple dolls. Something to keep in mind: Nostalgia fuels much of collecting thats why folks who grew up in the s and s gravitated to the streamlined Heywood Wakefield furniture their parents had bought new back in the day. Those pieces are selling for much less than they were even a decade ago. The same could be said for these dolls. The collectors who bought these in the 0s and s were girls themselves when these young stars lit the silver screen. We all want a bit of our childhood. But, at least in this case, we expect to pay less for someone elses.

CUISINE NEWSSomething sweet, salty and easy for Super Bowl 50 game day BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comSuper Bowl 50 plows through our television screens on Sunday, Feb. 7. One of the best things about this quintessentially American event, which we celebrate with more fervor than most of our national holidays, is that even nonfootball fans can enjoy the party. The very best part? Eating with your hands. Here we offer an appropriately salty, bacon-y and non-messy finger food you can easily pair with beer and the conviction that a Coldplay halftime show is an affront to your sensibilities. Maple-Glazed Peanuts & Bacon The Redhead, New York City Courtesy of Food & Wine Magazine Ingredients: cup pure maple syrup 3 cups (1 lb.) unsalted roasted peanuts tsp. dry mustard 1 TBS thyme leaves tsp. cayenne pepper tsp. Old Bay seasoning 3 slices bacon 1 TBS kosher salt Instructions: Preheat oven to 325. In a medium skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat until crisp. Transfer to paper towels to drain, then finely chop. In a medium bowl, mix the thyme, salt, Old Bay, cayenne and dry mustard. Add the peanuts, maple syrup and bacon and toss until the peanuts are evenly coated. Scrape the nuts onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and roast for about 30 minutes, stirring once, until the maple syrup has thickened. Let the peanuts cool completely, stirring frequently to break up any large clumps. Transfer to glass jars or a large bowl and serve. Take note: Barbatella offers a Super Bowl take-out menu on game day Sunday, Feb. 7. Customers can order a wide variety of hearty Italian specialties to feed a crowd, with half trays of baked pasta going for $45, cold cuts and cheese platters for $45-$65, trays of lasagna Bolognese for $95, and lots more. Be quick orders must be placed by 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 5. Call 2631955 or email office@ barbatellanaples.com.

The Hours: 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily The Full Menu: anotherbrokenegg. com The Details: Lately, fodder for this column seems borne out of a need for food on the fly, since Ive been finding myself lacking either time or pantry staples to feed myself from my own resources. At the end of a long weekend of moving households, I realized I had spent several days only eating cheese, several varieties of crackers, a stray berry or banana and plain toast mainly non-perishables that could be eaten straight out of a box or bag. Luckily, I found two super foods at Another Broken Egg Caf I hoped could compensate for my tragic lack of nutrition. A huge bowl of commendably bitesized pieces of kale, sliced almonds and shaved carrots arrived, all dressed in jalapeno-honey vinaigrette and topped with southwestern seasoned salmon. About three bites in, my mood lifted thanks to a heady dose of Vitamin A, omega-3 acids and lean protein. It was tasty, too. One More Thing: You like a tipple in the morning? Another Broken Egg Caf offers an extensive list of appropriate morning cocktails like fuzzy navels, mimosas, three types of bloody Marys and some delicious looking coffee and liqueur concoctions.

VINOStill resolved to sample widely We all make resolutions for the new year, and we all know how they fall by the wayside about the middle of February. The brand new Bowflex elliptical stepper that seemed like such a good idea has turned into an expensive clothes hanger. All our dietary resolve has succumbed to old habits. At least for some of us. My new year mission? To seek out new wines, and new winegrowing regions. To boldly sample varietals and blends that I have never sampled before. Fortunately, my sampling program for the last several months has consisted of wines that seem to fit in to the holiday seasons. Bubblies. Offerings from the more upscale producers. Wines priced for that special dinner or family gathering. The result: a bit of a backlog in the cellar, with several rows of bottles eagerly waiting to be opened, swirled, sniffed and sipped. If not now, when? So for the past few weeks, weve been gradually working our way through the whites, reds and sparklers that have stacked up in the racks while we were off having holiday merriment. Now is a good time to catch up. One of the best things about the wine world is that its full of new discoveries. Theres always a new varietal (How about that Piculit Neri from Italy? Delicious, right?) and new regions that offer interesting surprises. Some of the samples we dove into for this column did exactly that. Kendall Jackson Vintners Reserve Sauvignon Blanc California 2014 Pale yellow in the glass and on the nose and palate its definitely not the typical New Zealand style. There are aromas of lemony minerality with bright tropical fruit on the palate supported by zingy acidity. About $13. WW 88. Stift Skellerei Newstift Abbazia di Novacella Sylvaner 2014 If you can pronounce it, they should give you a bottle for free. But this is one of the surprises I mentioned. The Sylvaner grape is grown way up north in Italy, right along the German border where the cultures and languages mix freely. This wine comes from a winery that dates back to the year 1142, with green apple flavors and a strong spine of acidity making this a good pairing with fish and other seafood dishes. WW 88. Landmark Vineyards Overlook Chardonnay Sonoma 2013 One of those pleasant discoveries. Its light gold yellow with a layered nose of oak, lemon, honey and white flowers. A rich, mouthfilling chardonnay with oak overtones and a medium finish. WW 91-92. Trinity Hill Hawkes Bay Pinot Noir 2013 Another surprise. Usually, the pinot noirs from New Zealand come from the central Otago region on the south island, but this producer is in Hawkes Bay, which is on the east coast of the North Island. The wine is translucent ruby-violet with a definite old world nose of loamy earth and graphite. But it offers new world flavors of raspberry, blueberry, strawberry and smoke. Nice. WW 90-91. Blair Pinot Noir Arroyo Seco Delfinas Vineyard 2012 This version tilts more toward the new world, with lovely flavors of strawberry, raspberry and cedar. WW 89.Ask the Wine WhispererIve heard that high-alcohol wines are not all that good. True or false? Cameron S. MiamiAny winemaker will tell you that one of the most important qualities of a wine is balance. Are the fruit flavors, sugars, acids and alcohol levels in harmony? Does a wine feel hot on the palate because the alcohol content is too obvious? The fact is, many great wines have alcohol levels well north of 14 percent. Zinfandel, for example, is so big with bold fruit and sugar, that it can contain over 15 percent alcohol and youd never know it. The riper the fruit at harvest, the bolder the fruit flavors will be, and, generally, the higher the alcohol content. If all the components of the wine are in balance, a higher alcohol percentage wont make a difference. Unless, of course, you drink half a bottle and try to operate heavy machinery.

CUISINE NEWSRoys chef enjoys chains collaborative corporate cultureThe Roys restaurant chain boasts 20 locations in the continental United States as well as six in Hawaii, one in Japan and one in Guam. But you wont find the same menu at every outlet of the company founded by Roy Yamaguchi in 1988. In a unique arrangement, each Roys has a chef partner who can interpret the corporate philosophy to reflect personal creativity as well as local seasons and tastes. Jason Grasty has held that position for nine years at the Bonita Springs Roys and talked to Florida Weekly about his experience with the ohana. Q: What does being a chef partner mean? A: Being a chef partner means that Im vested into the business. We are totally committed to the restaurant and our craft as we are tied into its ultimate results. We have quite a bit of leeway with the menu through our individual creations unique to each restaurant. There is a core menu of classics that can be enjoyed at all Roys restaurants, but the ability for each chef to showcase their own creations makes each restaurant unique and individual. Chefs from all the stores also collaborate to come up with new menus and dishes that are showcased nationally. Q: Did you actually train with Roy Yamaguchi? Whats that like? A: I have worked with him multiple times in different settings across the country. Hes an amazing chef, with an endless offering of information not only for food and business, but more importantly how to work with and develop our ohana. We call our staff ohana, which in Hawaiian means family. Q: How would you describe the Roys concept to a first-time visitor? A: Roys is a culinary adventure that has its roots in classic French sauces and techniques, bold Asian spices and ingredients, with an emphasis on fresh seafood. Q: What do you think has made it so successful? A: Our food, surrounded by our aloha service. Offering our great classics nightly along with our local chefs creations really sets us apart. Q: Has the concept evolved much since youve been with Roys? A: Absolutely. Were constantly evolving. We are continually looking to stay cutting edge in a culinary world that seems to change daily at this point. As chefs we come together throughout the company to work together to stay innovative and maintain our world-class cuisine. We share our culinary ideas and enhance our craft through calls, email, conferences and chef summits, carrying on the vision that Roy started almost 30 years ago. Q: What are your bestsellers, and what do you think makes them special? A: Weve been here in Bonita for 16 years and have quite a few local favorites that weve developed over the years. Sweet Home Waikoloa Salad, Pink Peppercorn and Herb Crusted Halibut with Shiitake Scampi Beurre Blanc, Andouille Crusted Snapper with Citrus Shoyu Meuniere, Crispy Whole Yellowtail Snapper with Three Chili Lime Sauce I think theyre special because theyre not only a reflection of Roys but our entire ohana that came together to help create these dishes. Obviously, our classics (Misoyaki Butterfish, Blackened Island Ahi, Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi and Grilled Szechuan Pork Ribs) are always popular. Q: What sparked your interest in cooking as a career? A: My mom was a great cook, but I never had any signs of culinary prowess. My journey into this field was a bit of a fluke, but has certainly turned out for the best. My mom signed me up for a cooking class when I was 19. At the end of the class the chef offered me a job in his kitchen, which was a surprise to me as I had zero experience. I thought long and hard about it and I ended up moving to New Orleans to try something new and, well, the rest, as they say, is history. Q: Aside from Roy, obviously, do you have any other culinary idols? A: Aside from Roy Id have to say Marco Pierre White. Hes not a household name here, but you might know some of the chefs he trained Mario Batali and Gordon Ramsey. He was the youngest chef to win three Michelin stars and the first to do so without studying/working in France. Q: Are you still doing cooking classes at Roys? What do you enjoy about that experience? A: Yes, every month. I enjoy teaching people something Im passionate about. I want our guests to have a fun experience and to take away something new. In this day and age I think the priority of sitting down at the table with friends and family over a well-cooked meal is being lost, and I hope to enable people to see that its definitely possible. Q: A lot of home cooks are fearful of cooking fish. Its often delicate, its easy to ruin by overcooking, etc. Any general tips you can share for success at home? A: Keep it simple. Good fresh fish doesnt need much to make it great. Most of my fish at home is seared on one side then finished in the oven (to help not overcooking) and finished with citrus or a simple sauce. Q: Are you thinking about what youll be cooking at the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest in February? A: Ive already submitted my dish, but everyone will have to come out and taste it for themselves. Its going to be awesome. Q: Why do participate in events like that? A: I love doing events out of the restaurant, especially for charity. Its a fun change of pace and allows us to do something different. Q: Any favorite places you like to eat when youre not on the clock? A: Honestly, my time off is so limited I really enjoy cooking at home. Q: What do you enjoy doing when youre not thinking about food, talking about food or making food? A: I try and sneak out every once in a while for a round of golf. drew STERWALDcuisine@floridaweekly.com Jason Grasty>> Restaurant: East Coast Regional Chef Partner, Roys, 26831 South Bay Drive, Bonita Springs; roysrestaurant.com/locations/ /bonita-springs >> Age: 34 >> Culinary education: Delgado Community College, New Orleans >> Hometown: Houston, Texas >> Previous restaurants: Royal Sonesta Hotel and The Windsor Court Hotel, New Orleans; Driskill Hotel, Austin, Texas.

YOUR GUIDE TO NEW HOME COMMUNITIES IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA Long regarded as one of Southwest Floridas leading golf course communities, TwinEagles in North Naples is hosting the PGA TOURs Champions Tours Chubb Classic golf tournament this week. Nearly 80 Champions Tour golf professionals will check in and play practice rounds tomorrow and Tuesday. Players are invited to attend a meet and greet event with TwinEagles members at the communitys outdoor Tiki Lounge Tuesday evening. A Pro-Am tournament will be played Wednesday and Thursday, and the nationally televised Chubb Classic will be held Friday through next Sunday. TwinEagles heralded Talon Course will host the tournament, the fifth tournament held at TwinEagles since the award-winning Ronto Group assumed the role of developer at TwinEagles in September, 2010. The Talon course was designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son and is widely regarded as the top residential golf course in Southwest Florida. The challenging yet fair 7,193 yard course features all of Nicklaus signature design elements, including length, tricky approaches, undulating greens, bunkering, mounding, and water hazards. Thoughtful shot strategies and course management are the keys to scoring well on the Talon Course. While the TwinEagles staff is experienced in meeting the challenges of tournament week, the level of preparation and number of hours required during the week are substantial. The Clubs award-winning Executive Chef Chas Tatigian and his team will serve over 4,000 meals during the week, including breakfast, lunch, and a post round cocktail party on each day of the Pro Am, and meals in the clubhouse dining room on tournament days for the players, tournament officials, and TwinEagles members. Tatigian will supplement his award-winning staff with additional help. Chas is not ordering any pre-prepared food items, said Andrea Bach, General Manager of the Twin Eagles Club. Everything is freshly prepared. Its an impressive operation that requires a great deal of planning and coordination. Every department has challenges that need to be met. The most challenging days for Director of Golf Scott Newhouse and the Golf Operations team are Wednesday and Thursday, the days when the Pro Am is being held. Theres a lot of pressure on Director of Golf Course Maintenance Bruce Bach. Our members always expect the quality of our golf courses to be exceptional. At tournament time, Bruce also needs to meet the expectations of the PGA. Preparing the course starts well in advance of the actual tournament. The PGA makes a course visit and completes a report, including suggestions about course preparation for Bruce Bach. During tournament week, the PGA expects the putting greens to be fast, and the rough to be mowed to a particular height. To ensure the beauty of the Talon course is accurately conveyed on television, Bach visits each of the camera towers to see exactly what the cameras will be seeing. This level of attention to detail and the level of care the course receives on a daily basis explain why the Talon course has become a preferred course for PGA TOUR Champions Tour events in Southwest Florida. For all the challenges of tournament week, the TwinEagles staffs experience in staging the tournament has included developing strong personal relationships with many of the Champions Tour professionals. The players appreciate the staffs personalized attention. The players are very appreciative and complimentary of our efforts, said Andrea Bach, and we take pride in making tournament week enjoyable for them. The first year we had the tournament, the winner, Kenny Perry, was very complimentary of the course conditions. Then the year that Kirk Triplett won, he mentioned how great Chas meatballs are. Its the little things that really matter, like making a birthday cake for a players wife whose birthday fell during tournament week. We have an ice cream bar in the dining room and one of the players is especially fond of ice cream. The first time he visited the ice cream bar, he asked How can I eat ice cream out of such a little bowl? I went and got a larger bowl. He said Youre getting closer. I went and found the largest bowl I could find. When he saw that one, he smiled. Now that bowl is at the ice cream bar with his name on it. Fun things like that make the week enjoyable for us and for the players. For TwinEagles members, hosting the Chubb Classic is a great source of pride. Unlike the experience at many clubs hosting PGA events, TwinEagles members have an opportunity to be fully engaged during tournament week. Members have full access to the clubhouse during the week, and share the dining room with the players and tournament officials. Members receive VIP passes to attend the tournament and can bring guests on Friday and Saturday. Valet parking is provided and there is a members hospitality suite. Our members take pride in knowing our club has been selected to host a PGA event, said Bach. All of us, the members and the staff, know this is a moment for TwinEagles to shine and for the national audience to see how special this place is. After all the preparation and working a 100 hour week, the big moment for me and the staff is Sunday afternoon when we all get to go out onto the 18th green and present the trophy to the winner. That is a huge moment for us that never gets old. Visit the TwinEagles Sales Center at 11330 Twin Eagles Boulevard, or call 239.352.8000. Visit Twin Eagles online at twineagles.com. TwinEagles prepares for Chubb ClassicSPONSORED CONTENTFEBRUARY 4-10, 2016 The nationally televised Chubb Classic will be held next Friday through Sunday on TwinEagles heralded Talon Course. Tens of thousands of people will attend the 2016 Chubb Classic at TwinEagles, the fifth tournament held at TwinEagles since The Ronto Group assumed the role of developer at TwinEagles in September, 2010. TwinEagles award-winning Executive Chef Chas Tatigian and his team will serve over 4,000 meals in the communitys clubhouse dining room during tournament week, including breakfast, lunch, and a post round cocktail party on each day of the Pro Am.

We currently live next door at The Forest and were looking for a new home. This allows us to stay close to our friends, close to the airport and close to US 41. Hidden Harbor provides access to the Gulf of Mexico by way of the Ten Mile Canal and Estero Bay. Residents may boat, kayak and canoe directly from their personal boat dock. The private harbor is a for manatees and provides access to The Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail, a 190-mile marked canoe and kayak trail that meanders through the coastal waters and inland tributaries of Lee County, Florida. Local fishing expert, Garret Farmer, says residents will be pleased with the fishing. The common species we have in the backwaters of Estero Bay and the surrounding creeks include snook, trout, redfish, tarpon, sheepshead, sharks, snapper, jacks and black drum. said Farmer. The canal from Hidden Harbor ranges anywhere from 2-3 feet to 6-8 feet, depending on the tide and is navigable by pontoon, bay, deck, or flats boat. Stock has purchased a pontoon so prospective homebuyers can tour the serene waters and experience the fish and wildlife that is part of the Hidden Harbor lifestyle. Hidden Harbor also offers convenient access to Southwest Floridas finest beaches on Sanibel Island or Fort Myers Beach via road or boat. Nearby are excellent shopping and dining opportunities, as well as several of Southwest Floridas major entertainment venues.
