COMMENTARYReflections on the New SouthHistory exists not in one, but in two places: the past, and at the point of the plow that cuts the hard dirt of whats to come. It rolls up fragrant and new like dark soil from the furrows of each deed and every thought shared by any of us with all of us. Especially in the South, whose history most of us know only in single words or short phrases: Slavery. Cotton and tobacco. The Confederacy, Robert E. Lee and Martin Luther King Jr. Black, white, civil rights, the Klan, jazz and blues, jasmine and magnolia, Stars and Bars. Shrimpers, growers, Seminole wars and Crackers. Storytellers, barbecue and Sunday-go-to-meeting. But the New South is much more complex than that and far from new. It started in the 1880s, when a Georgia man named Henry Gates bought into and became editor of the Atlanta Constitution newspaper. Mr. Gates coined the term, the New South, before dying of pneumonia during the Christmas season of 1889 a Southerner born in 1850 who had seen bloody fighting as a teenager during the Civil War, and whose Confederate father had been killed by a Union soldier. Mr. Gates celebrated the end of slavery, the end of the old ways and he hoped the industrialization and modernization of the New South. He wanted it to join American society seamlessly and without regret, becoming a more prosperous place, but a place where blacks would remain secondclass citizens by nature and birth. As progress on the bumpy American road to equality and prosperity goes, it was a little step forward. But it was also the seedling notion not just of whats Southern but of whats American nowadays in the New South: shopping malls, highways, chain stores and Disney. Air conditioning and sprawling suburbs and corporate farming and tourism. Southerners who sell their property to developers, then blame Yankees all the way to the bank for altering their moss-draped landscapes forever. For 151 years come April 9 that was the day Robert E. Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox in 1865 the South has been struggling forward. So have all Americans. Were a people born with the DNA of change, but (especially in the South) change made in turbulence, a river at the confluence of memory and experience. And wed better be. They arent just Southerners who practiced racism, genocide, the tyranny of power and the use of lies and deceit to manipulate people weaker and less ambitious than European Americans. Blacks, native tribes and immigrants of every stripe have felt the hammer of American ignorance and uncaring everywhere from Boston to Biloxi and from St. Augustine to San Diego. But the South, old or new, is not merely the confluence of culture and a history. Its also a sensuous geography, a landscape that bleeds into the character of its people, shaping their poetry and painting, or hot-wiring the music and storytelling of their broken hearts and their clannish pride and their potholed but steady progress. Many Southerners who come from the land or cherish it often carry a grace and clarity a willingness to see and remember that strikes me as profoundly hopeful for the history of Americans still to come. I was reminded of that again last week when I came across a brief Facebook exchange between two Southern friends, both from farming families. Billy: Fog muffles sounds too, boy howdy I remember down in the cypress country, knee deep in the water, sometimes Id stop to just listen to the great big ol drops of water dripping off the trees accompanying the songs of the swamp and the eerie muffled quiet of a strange and kinda melancholy moment of utter peace! Bev: I love this! And after you stop moving for a few minutes the swamp starts to get so loud you cant hear yourself think. Every living thing seems to want to make a racket. And they all scream at each other in dissonant tones. Swamp symphony. Billy: Those moments are like turning back the pages of time, a oneness with events, unchanged from the very beginnings. Bev: It makes me feel invisible and reminds me Im just here for a moment. Im not the center of my universe. This was all there long before me and will be there long after me. Its comforting. These are people with courage and humility, both. They will look out at the world, they will look inward at themselves, and they will weigh it all in the balance, like another Southerner I know, Woody Hanson. Mr. Hanson, a real estate professional whose grandfather knew more about the Seminole and Miccosukee Indians than any other white American, decided to go get a masters degree in history at the University of South Florida at the age of 60, under the guidance of one of the nations premier Southern historians, Professor Ray Arsenault. Mr. Arsenault is now about to guide Mr. Hanson through his final scholarly paper, The Burden of Florida History. Such scholarship is a journey into the swamp, a different way of listening to those big ol drops of water dripping off the trees. Mr. Hansons title echoes another, in this case a book by the late American historian and Yale Professor C. Vann Woodward, The Burden of Southern History. His friend and mine, Florida Weekly contributor Cynthia Mott, told me that. Ms. Mott also studied the history of Florida and the South with Mr. Arsenault and his colleague at USF, emeritus Professor Gary Mormino. She inspired Mr. Hanson to do the same, he has said. In effect, all these men and women together are the point of the plow, the history makers of something new, vibrant, but still deeply Southern. They will look out and listen, in scholarship or cypress swamp. They will share what they know. And everything will change and become new. t c b p c r roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

It features movie star Jennifer Aniston. She is 40,000 feet aloft in an airplane, on her way to some faraway destination that requires many hours of flight. We know she is suffering the consequences of her arduous trip. She is wearing a terry bathrobe, looking shopworn around the edges and not her glamorous self, searching high and low for a hot shower and a dry martini. Believe me, I have been there but who knew airplanes had showers to go with their martinis, and that not finding one ranks among the worst of travelers travails? It is outrageous, really. How can that be in a 21st century world? The ad goes on to explain. In the next scene, Jennifer asks the flight attendants the whereabouts of the shower. Her beautiful brow is knit, and puzzlement is apparent all over her face. Looking slightly bemused by her inquiry, the attendants inform Jennifer she has made a tragic mistake. She is on the wrong airline. She is in mid-transoceanic flight on a domestic carrier. For gods sake, Jennifer thinks to herself, How could I let this happen? The camera zooms in on her stunned look. This is the ads aha moment. The plot thickens: Now we understand the magnitude of Jennifers error: She is trapped for the duration of the flight aboard a funky U.S. airline, and must travel the distance sans shower just like the rest of the unwashed. This brutal realization hits Jennifer like an assault on her personal hygiene. Or, dare I say, like a cold shower. Cut to the next scene: Jennifer awakens abruptly and bolts upright. She finds herself in a full-length, customized-for-air-travel bed. She is surrounded by downy blankets, the roar of the jet engines muffled by the hardwood paneling of her bedside media center. She is, of course, flying first class on her airline of choice, which happens to be the airline sponsoring the ad. We knew this was coming. The ad continues: Thank God, Jennifer murmurs appreciatively. The absence of a shower on board was only a nightmare, a scary encounter with how the other 99 percent of passengers travel. We are relieved she recovers from a rough night in such favorable circumstances. Our empathy as a fellow traveler is won. No wonder the poor woman goes searching for a stiff drink. We would, too. The ads last scene features Jennifer, martini in hand, commiserating with the barkeep serving first-class passengers in the on-board cocktail lounge. We presume she has had a hot shower and is totally refreshed. The camera takes in the full breadth of her luxurious surroundings. The setting could easily be the bar at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Such is the life of the rich and famous. The ad leaves us feeling vaguely sad and depressed. On reflection, we understand why. We cant wake up from Jennifers nightmare. We are stuck in her bad dream, doomed to travel among all the other living dead on airplanes with no hot showers. The solution is clear: We must shun our usual choice of domestic carriers and book future travel on Emirates Airlines. Why didnt we think of this before? Here I had been, thinking for a decade or more that fat city on a flight was free peanuts, an aisle seat and space to stuff a bag into the overhead compartment. Having such amenities was almost as good as having the width of a Ritz cracker between you and the passenger seated in the next row up in front of your tortured knees. Or finding your checked baggage actually arrived with you at your destination. Then there is the arduousness of all the preflight preparations: shopping interminably on the Internet for the best deal. It is like winning the lottery when you score a ticket that doesnt require you leave your spouse behind. Maybe next time we can go together, you say. You send consoling text messages of wish you were here and post selfies on Instagram to keep your partner from entertaining thoughts of revenge on your return. Jennifers mode of luxurious travel smashes conventional wisdom that flying is absolutely no fun anymore, an endurance test for the tough and hardy. How can we expect anything better? This is a conveyance of mass travel whose profit margins depend on stuffing as many miserable passengers as possible into the confines of a metal tube sock with wings. But Jennifer got us thinking. Maybe we deserve a hot shower, too. Her mode of flying halfway around the world might set us back about $25K; but hey, thats only slightly more than a years income for a family of four living in poverty. Arent we worth it? Well, some of us apparently are, and for those who share this sense of privilege, Emirates Airlines is poised to serve, with hot showers and all. Everybody else can just get there the best way they can. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian. She resides with her family and pugs in Jupiter. Email her at email@example.com. OPINIONBlock an Obama nominationAccording to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the future of the republic teeters in the balance. Unless the United States Senate bows to the will of President Barack Obama and approves his replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, everything we hold dear will be lost. A refusal to get with the program, Sen. Warren insists, would threaten both the Constitution and our democracy itself. It would also prove that all the Republican talk about loving the Constitution is just that empty talk. This is the twisted view now prevalent on the left and in the media: It reads Article II of the Constitution giving the president the power to appoint justices with the advice and consent of the Senate as, in effect, an affirmative obligation on the Senate to consider and approve the presidents nominees. Might this wholly fanciful constitutional exegesis have something to do with a desire to replace Justice Scalia, a giant of originalism, with another progressive rubber stamp? Back in 2007, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., a giant of clever partisan manipulations, all but pledged his life and sacred honor to blocking any further George W. Bush appointments to the Supreme Court and somehow democracy survived. Of course, Barack Obama can nominate whomever he likes to the Supreme Court. Of course, the Senate can block him or her. And of course, Democrats can call Republicans heedless obstructionists and try to turn the public against them. This is the natural contest between the political branches, which is a feature of the U.S. Constitution, not a bug. At the fault line between the two elected branches, the nomination process is inherently political, and, inevitably, tensions will be highest when a president is about to leave office. The Congressional Research Service looked at rejected Supreme Court nominees a few years ago and concluded, Opposition to the nominating President played a role in at least 16 of the 36 nominations that were not confirmed. Many of the 16 were put forward by a President in the last year of his presidency. No doubt, Republicans will take heat for simply saying no to another Obama appointee to the court. But there will be none of the faux drama of a government shutdown, when the national parks are shackled and the media acts as if Americas national life is on the verge of collapse. The country will be able to survive some 4-4 Supreme Court decisions, which affirm the lower-court decision. The Senate owes President Obama no deference or consideration. He has trampled on the legislative power at every opportunity, including attempting to deem the Senate in recess on his own say-so (he lost the resulting Supreme Court case 9-0). His unconstitutional immigration and clean-power directives both have been held in abeyance by the courts. If President Obama wanted a collegial relationship with the Republican Senate, he should have thought of that long ago. Now, he will pronounce himself shocked and saddened that Congress doesnt want to hold his coat while he remakes the high court. The Senate should hold firm, and let Elizabeth Warren and her colleagues rend their garments and gnash their teeth.

ROOTED IN NAPLESWelcome to the neighborhoodLast weekend, someone knocked as I was organizing the kid detritus in our entryway. I was immediately suspicious. We had barely moved in and hadnt had the opportunity to offend anyone yet. Come to think of it, however, the soccer ball had been sitting in the front yard for a few days, and in our old neighborhood that might have raised eyebrows. I put on my stoniest face and opened the door. Imagine my surprise when the person on the other side smiled and handed me cookies. Hi! My name is Susan and I live next door. We just wanted to welcome you to the neighborhood. What? Really? Okay! A few days later, I padded out to the end of the driveway and squinted toward the end of the road to spot the girl pack our daughter had fallen into. Thanks to poor eyesight that contacts cant totally fix, I couldnt tell if the short one belonged to me. Whats her name? Ill tell her youre looking for her. A truck had driven past during my sad attempts to flag my daughters attention, and the driver backed up to help. Julia. Shes wearing a plaid dress and riding her brothers bike, I told him. Thanks! By God, I watched him briefly stop, and then the littlest girl in the pack started pedaling in my direction as he pulled away. The scene that warms my cold, black heart the most, however, happened as I wandered outside on a Sunday evening and found my husband deep in conversation with our neighbor across the street. Kids circled them, walkers joined in and soon we were downloaded with enough neighborhood news and information to feel as if we really were welcome. Is this Naples? In two weeks, we have easily had more positive interactions with our neighbors than we had in six years at our old community. It took our kids until the last three months of our tenure there to find other children close enough to play with. At our new house, girls were knocking on our door looking for our daughter before we even moved in. Can your daughter come out to play? Whats her name again? Yes, she can play. She can play forever. Let me follow you home so I can meet your parents and Julia can move in if they think shes cute. So what is the difference between the old neighborhood and our new one? Gates. We dont live in a gated community anymore. After spending our adult lives living in closed neighborhoods, Im happily overwhelmed to find our new neighbors are neighborly. Theres nobody posted in a gatehouse to interrogate my guests, and the neighborhood association is very loosely organized. Everyone is self-policing, and it seems the houses are populated with adults who use their big words instead of fines to address wayward behavior. Not that there arent fines for infractions, but apparently everyone is less trigger-happy with discipline. Communication and, if necessary, shaming seem to go a lot further than tow trucks and violations. Perhaps the difference is that without the heavy hand of the board over top everyone, people eye each other with curiosity rather than suspicion. Im new here, so I could be wrong, but knowing that someone isnt likely to run to the board with concerns about where we store our garbage cans improves my perception of the people around me. Its fascinating how quickly weve acclimated thanks to the friendliness of the neighborhood. Now that our nerves have been soothed, one question remains: Am I neighborly? Can someone teach me? Lindsey Nesmith knows how many times her children were told to pick up that soccer ball, even if they dont. lindseyNESMITHlnesmith@floridaweekly.com

A8 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 2, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKendrick Lamar, fresh off his five wins and a breathtaking performance at this years Grammy Awards, will be there. Robert Plant, whose appellation couldnt be more suitable, will be there too, among the oak trees. So will Mumford & Sons, Daryl Hall and John Oates and The Avett Brothers. Tantric sex counselors and yoga gurus will be there. A couple named Prana and Amber Rose Ashodian, who practice something called sound therapy, will be there. Dozens of visual artists will be there, channeling the magic. Visual artists will be there, working on their respective crafts for all to see. The underappreciated and much-revered experimental rock band named Ween will be there. Win Butler, the lead singer from the Grammy-winning band Arcade Fire, is coming, too. Soundslinger, the company running the festival, was formed by a legendary music promoter, a creative director/co-founder of the famed Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Tennessee and a real estate investor music fan who developed what might be the most perfect spot for such an event. Although the event was years in the making, it seemingly came out of nowhere when the initial lineup was announced in September. In January, The New York Times named it among the places Where Music Lovers Should Go in 2016. Like Bonnaroo and dozens of other festivals throughout the country, it features days of live music, dancing and camping in a remote location either with the simplest of tent setups or elaborate VIP options. The cost for tickets and packages ranges from $259.50 to $17,500. Its Soundslingers assertion that above all else, whatever magic musical, financial and otherwise that happens, will be fueled by the earth, trees and vistas here just north of Lake Okeechobee. The Okeechobee site is the headliner of this festival, says Paul Peck. We have the best festival site in America. Mr. Pecks longtime friend from the music business, Steve Sybesma, lured the former Bonnaroo co-founder away from his sweet gig at the premier festival. Mr. Sybesma wanted to show Mr. Peck a site that investor Clifford Rosen from Miami thought might work as a festival venue. Ive known Steve for a long time. We always talked about working on projects, said Mr. Peck. When he talked to me about this, I said, Im not looking to make a change. And he said, Its the best festival site youve ever seen. When I went to see it I had high expectations. Then my expectations were blown out of the water. You go through these paths in the shade and come out into this tree-lined amphitheater. Its going to feel like were going to be hugged by trees all in this beautiful space together. The property is so well laid out. The weather, hopefully, will be dry and cool a good bet for Florida in early March. The mosquito population is in decline at this time of year. Sound ordinances dont apply at Sunshine Grove. And another advantage Mr. Peck expects is that dust, which is a daunting problem at numerous festivals, will be minimal. Dust gets on everything, people and equipment. We have a 6-mile paved roadway, so cars driving in and out wont be kicking up dust. We think that were going to have a lot less dust. In 2005, the festival site was slated to become Sundance Trails, a residential equestrian community with 5-acre lots. Like so many real estate ventures from that time, the deal didnt go as planned. Mr. Rosen seized the opportunity to reposition the property, with its lakes, roads and other infrastructure, to create a platform for the festival. Attendees can park their cars and camp for days. Alternately, people can simply park and come and go as they please. However, nearby hotel rooms are reportedly near or at capacity. There are VIP RV options with catered meals as well as flushing toilets and showers. (Yes, toilets and showers come at a premium.) The layout map reads like a theme park guide on mushrooms. A place named Aquachobee will feature a lake beach, with bands performing on stage at the waters edge. There will be a Ferris wheel and cocktails for sale. At Yogachobee, visitors are asked to take a journey inward and reawaken their connection to themselves, to others and the land. Another area named Jungle 51 imagines an alien crash site in the woods that by some trippy accident results in an all-night dance party.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 2, 2016 NEWS A9 tival is about a two-hour drive along scenic country roads. But the festival is expected to attract music lovers from across the country. Im coming from Washington D.C., my sister is coming from New York City, said Rachel Sher, a 25-year-old paralegal. The lineup is incredibly attractive. We are both huge Mumford & Sons fans. We also love Bassnectar, Grace Potter, Odesza I could go on. Ms. Sher, her sister and a group of friends will camp and grill, but theyre also excited about the food vendors. Like everything else at this event, the food is curated and designed to impress a crowd that has come to expect more than just hot dogs and slices of cheese pizza. In all, folks at Soundslinger believe theyve found a spot where natural enchantment meets the logistical demands of hosting tens of thousands of revelers in style. Their goal is nothing less than creating one of the top festivals in the country mentioned in the same breath as shows like Coachella and Lollapalooza. Musical surprisesIm going to be in the What the F section. Thats VIP, Joanne McNeely laughs a gravelly, joyous sound. Shes spent countless hours as a top volunteer for the festivals street team, waving signs, passing out fliers and promoting the event on social media and by visiting businesses in Okeechobee County where she lives. In exchange for her efforts, she and her 27-year-old son will have access to the festival in a VIP area named WTF. When I first heard about (the festival) I was so excited, said the 58-yearold retired postal worker. Ive been into music all my life. And Ive stayed current with the times. As music has progressed, so have I. I like metal, but I moved to on to EDM (electronic dance music). It keeps me young. Shes as excited about seeing the electronica artist Skrillex as she is about hearing Robert Plant. For his part, Mr. Plant, along with the Sensational Space Shifters will kick off a small tour of the South here at Okeechobee. Hell re-imagine some well-known Led Zeppelin songs on stage. However, in case you havent been paying attention since that bands last album Coda came out in 1971 Mr. Plant has continued to innovate musically. At 67, hes still rocking as hard as ever except that trying to classify his music as just rock would be a disservice. Plant is still curious about music and trying to find things he hasnt done and go places he hasnt been, says Alan Sculley, a music critic for Florida Weekly whose work appears in publications throughout the country. Plant has been doing a lot of good things in recent years. Hes getting back to his roots going back to his album with Allison Krauss (2007s Raising Sand). And now hes been on a journey into Americana and getting back into blues and psychedelia. Reinvention, musical experimentation at the highest levels, is Mr. Pecks greatest contribution to the festival. At Bonnaroo, he made a name for himself by creating Superjam, where hed bring disparate artists together to collaborate in one-time-only performances. There was the time at Bonnaroo, for instance, when he put Skrillex on stage with a parade of the performers musical influences, which included Damien Marley with Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead. Mr. Peck has rebranded this mashup concept for Okeechobee, where his mixed-up set is called the PoWoW! Im a fan first, said Mr. Peck. I love creating special moments. Those combinations of art and surprise, when two artists perform together for the first time and we all experience that together. They create something new. I live for those moments. The Superjams also became known for springing A-list surprises on audiences, like the time when R. Kelly appeared on a star-studded stage singing Sam Cooke songs only to be followed by Billy Idol. Music fans should expect the unex-SEE CONCERT, 10 Tampa Naples Lake Okeechobee Okeechobee Gulf of Mexico Atlantic Ocean Miami Orlando 75 95 4 Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival 70N
pected at Okeechobee, too. I have to keep a few things up my sleeve, said Mr. Peck. This is not a music festival for a certain kind of music fan. Theres going to be so much stuff to do out there, you will connect to something new. I guarantee. Its designed to be a place of music discovery, and also of personal discovery. Lets say Mumford & Sons is your favorite band, but then you see Kendrick Lamar and that connects with you were out to obliterate genre classifications and break barriers and create a new community based on diversity. And whats being created here has never happened before. Going VIPFor those who are attracted to the lineup but may be put off by the thought of primitive camping without the benefit of electricity or running water, there are several options to minimize the more Survivorman aspects of the experience. The Big Kachobee Tour Bus Package for eight people includes private bunks, plush couches, flat-screen TVs, a minikitchen and private bathroom, as well as access to showers, an open bar, lunch and premium viewing areas by the stages. The cost is $17,500, plus $581 in fees. Other, less-expensive VIP options include boutique camping tents that come with a queen bed, chairs, electrical hookups, catered breakfasts, access to a comfortable, air-conditioned lounge and the coveted showers. A two-person package runs $2,749 plus fees. (Non-VIP visitors can shower for $7.) Other festivals have come under fire for paying too much attention to the VIP customers, creating a culture of haves and have-nots. Organizers are charged with trying to minimize the appearance of disparity while still casting a wide net in terms of the kinds of people who will come to the show. Im trying to form a community. You dont want people to feel like theyre on different levels, said Mr. Peck. But the thing about community is I want to be as welcoming to as many people as possible. My parents want to experience a festival in a different way than my little brother. I want to give as many people the opportunity to experience this. (The VIPs) wont be an in-your-face elitist thing. The VIPs are going to want to be in the general admission experience. This general admission experience will be equivalent to the VIP at other shows. General admission tickets to the show, where you pitch your own tent, fend for yourself and use the portable toilets cost $259.50 p lus $20 in fees for a threeday pass, which includes parking. Discovering OkeechobeeOkeechobee Countys population will increase by more than 75 percent when the music festival comes to town. There are about 40,000 living in the county. The festival is expected to draw at least 30,000 fans plus a few thousand more organizers, volunteers, performers and reporters. Theres a Publix, a Wal-Mart and a Winn-Dixie in town, but theres no shopping mall, which is just as well. Okeechobee is country without the trendy aspirations of places like Fort Myers or Naples. It embraces its ruralness. You can still know the people here. You know the county commissioners by their first names, said Robbi Sumner, who does Internet sales for Elis Western Wear on Park Street, the citys main commercial drag. Like many here, shes positive if not a little ambivalent as she waits to see how the whole thing turns out. Were positively apprehensive, said Ms. Sumner with a laugh. Increased traffic is a concern. But theres also the potential for revenue. The median income in Okeechobee is $34,490 (compared with $47,908 in Lee County). If people are in the hotels, eating at our restaurants, thats good It would be nice for people to say, Thats a neat place, lets go back and do some fishing or clay shooting. For their part, organizers have reached out to business owners, the community and civic leaders, doing their best to impart the festivals live-and-let-live vibe. To hear the organizers tell it, this festival is only the beginning. Its their hope to keep growing the event and to use the site in new and interesting ways. It is definitely in our sights to host multiple festivals and events, said Soundslingers Steve Sybesma during a recent online Reddit forum. We have at least one amazing concept in the works, groundbreaking, like nothing ever done before. We will change the perceptions of what people expect in a festival. CONCERTFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOMany would say the location is perfect for an outdoor music festival comparable to Bonnarroo. THE AVETT BROTHERS BASSNECTAR ODESZAIve known Steve for a long time. We always talked about working on projects ... When he talked to me about this, I said Im not looking to make a change. And he said, Its the best festival site youve ever seen. When I went to see it I had high expectations. Then my expectations were blown out of the water. Paul Peck A10 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 2, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY

Schulze Family Foundation host the second annual giving day in Collier County 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 Collier County nonprofits a much-needed boost with donations and a $400,000 matching fund. Built upon the idea that everyone can be a philanthropist, the 24-hour online project affords individuals a simplified means of supporting the education and basic-needs efforts of area nonprofits. With a simple click of a mouse at givewhereyoulivecollier. org, individuals can contribute to one or all of the participating nonprofits. The inaugural Give Where You Live campaign raised $1.8 million for 30 organizations. This years campaign has expanded to 40 organizations, from the Alzheimers Association to Youth Haven. No matter the size of your contribution, you can be a philanthropist who makes a difference in this community, says Eileen Connolly-Keesler, Community Foundation president and CEO.

Schulze Family Foundation, says the foundation 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.

In fact, Collier County hosts two notable pickleball tournaments in the next several weeks. First is the Southern Tropics tournament taking place Friday through Sunday, Feb. 26-28, at East Naples Community Park. Even bigger, the U.S. Open Pickleball Championships take place April 26-May 1 at East Naples Community Park. Pickleball organizer, player and booster Jim Ludwig expects about 1,000 players to the late April event, which has a total purse of $25,000. Competitors are coming from Singapore, India, Colombia, Brazil and other countries, according to Mr. Ludwig. Scott Tingley, a North Port resident who plans to play in both Collier County tourneys, says the U.S. Open event will be the biggest tournament east of the Mississippi. For the Southern Tropics event, 150200 players are expected. Its a trial run as I call it, Naples player and organizer Nancy Robertson said of the Tropics tournament. What exactly is pickleball? Sometimes described as pingpong on steroids, the game is a combination of other sports played by batting a ball back and forth over a net. There are elements of tennis, table tennis and squash in pickleball. The court is smaller than in tennis, and players use paddles instead of racquets. The ball is like a whiffle ball. Ms. Russell, the former Wimbledon doubles champion, started playing last February and has found one of the pleasures of the sport she enjoys most is the people she plays against. Were always laughing, she said, adding she has fun playing pickleball no matter whether shes up against somebody much younger or older, better or worse. Mr. Tingley grew up playing tennis, soccer and baseball and was also a swimmer. He started playing pickleball four years ago, and now its his main sport. I love the nuances and strategy involved, he said. I love the pace of the game. He even has a website called ilovetoplaypickleball.com. Although he travels around Florida and to other states teaching others how to play, Mr. Tingleys focus these days is in Punta Gordas Gilchrist Park, where eight courts dedicated to pickleball opened last year. He estimates about 3,000 people in Charlotte County play the sport, up from about 300 when he started. I have to get there at 8 a.m., Ms. Russell said of Collier County parks where she plays pickleball. Every court is filled. Unlike in big-time tennis tournaments where powerful serves can make for very short rallies, long rallies are a regular feature of pickleball. For starters, overhead serves are not allowed. All serves must be underhand, and good players need a repertoire of shots. You have to dink, you have to lob, Ms. Russell said. Nobody has a 140mph serve like some big-time professional tennis players. Or even, perhaps, a 70-mph serve. Its really about skill and touch, Ms. Russell said. And the learning curve, she added. Anybody can play. Thats a point other players also make. Its a very easy sport to learn, Mr. Ludwig said. Fort Myers resident Julie Scott has been playing for five years and attests to how easy it is to get hooked. Fortunately, my husband loves it as much as I do, she said. PICKLEBALLFrom page 1

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 2, 2016 NEWS A19 BEHIND THE WHEELFord Expedition Platinum EL: A Lincolns worth of luxury behind the Ford badgeThere is a little piece of plastic that goes in between a smartphone and the portable credit card reader to cradle it and keep it in place. This is a simple idea that is a relatively inexpensive accessory, and it is only appreciated by a select few who have heavy usage. What does it have to do with the SUV seen here? More than you might think. The 2016 Ford Expedition Platinum EL is a mouthful to say, but its extensive moniker is justified. It is Fords large SUV that shares a chassis and engines with the outing-ready F-Series pickup. The EL is an extended-length version, and Platinum is the newest top-of-theline trim. This one has a size presence, and it knows how to make an entrance. The Platinum trim comes standard with power-deployed running boards that drop down whenever any door is open. It has a little electric hum thats loud enough to let everyone at the valet stand know this SUV is extra fancy. The EL adds another foot to the Expeditions already substantial wheelbase. It gives Ford bragging rights by being an inch longer between the wheels than its chief rival, the Chevrolet Suburban. But the 220.8-inch overall length is over 3 inches shorter than the Chevy. In the real world no one will know it has the silver metal for size, and just be prepared for plenty of comments on its bulk when picking up friends. Once inside, passengers will appreciate the larger space. This has room to carry up to eight people, and all of them can be adults if everyone is already friendly. The Platinum edition keeps everyone comfortable with all three rows covered in leather. The front seats get heating and cooling and even the middle ones come heated all as standard equipment. The driver might notice some of the materials are borrowed from the previous generation F-150, such as the steering wheel and vents. But it still feels independent and modern with features like the center speedometer with programmable readouts on both sides for everything from fuel economy to the stereo. The EL more than doubles the cargo capacity behind the third row for a total of 42.6 cubic feet. This is good news for people who take trips with large families or plenty of friends, because this one has the capacity to carry everyone and their luggage at the same time. By now it might seem like a large crossover can do the same job, but not quite. Fords full-sized Flex is a decent rival for the standard Expedition since it carries only one less person and offers a few feet more in cargo capacity. But these extended wheelbase vehicles like the EL are usually based on a truck chassis that offers more elasticity and better durability. The Platinum model further plays into this strength with a heavy-duty towing package that comes standard. Those who own boats, campers or other recreational items that need to be towed know the value of having secure space within the vehicle to haul accessories. This level of utility starts at $64,180. Thats not everyday affordable, but it would cost around $10K more to have a similarly optioned version of the Expeditions twin, the Lincoln Navigator. This is more than just a significant savings over the next rung up the prestige ladder. Some of us might enjoy driving a premium vehicle, but a premium brand might not be right for certain businesses. For example, some clients might think they are paying too much when their representative arrives in a Lincoln or Cadillac. But vehicles like this and the Chevrolet Suburban offer high luxury levels without the stigma of an expensive marque. In a similar way, theres a lot less stress in writing down a Ford Expedition as a business expense than a Lincoln Navigator. This SUV is not for everyone. You should have a need to carry family and tow toys simultaneously, and at the same time, desire a premium feeling with a less flashy image. The Ford Expedition Platinum EL costs a heck of a lot more than a little piece of plastic for your smartphone, but for the right few, its worth every penny. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

Vice Admiral Ted Branch came under investigation in 2013 in a corruption scandal involving a foreign defense contractor and various Navy personnel and might have been suspended from all duties except that, given the political gridlock in Washington, no consensus candidate has emerged. No charges have been filed against Branch, but before he enters any room at the Pentagon, classified material must be stowed away.Recurring themes New World Order: (1) Yet another woman gave birth to her own granddaughter in January. Tracey Thompson, 54, offered to be the surrogate mother for her fertility-challenged daughter, Kelley, and delivered a 6-pound, 11-ounce girl at The Medical Center in Plano, Texas. (2) After notable successes in the United States, Latin America claimed in December its first transgender pregnancy after Ecuadorean Fernando Machado announced he was expecting a child with his partner Diane Rodriguez. Fernando used to be Maria; Diane used to be Luis; and though both undergo hormone therapy, they have retained their birth organs. Perspective: On the heels of a similar program in Richmond, California, Washington, D.C.s, D.C. Council authorized funding in January to pay stipends to notorious criminals if they stop committing crimes. Police would identify up to 50 residents likely to violently offend again in 2016 and offer them periodic cash payments plus special training and educational benefits as long as they stay out of trouble. Officials in Richmond (once overwhelmed by gun deaths) say their program, commenced almost 10 years ago, has produced a 76 percent drop in gun-related crime. Reports of the prominence of animal urine in various cultures health regimens have surfaced periodically in News of the Weird, and in December, in Al Qunfudhah, Saudi Arabia, a shop selling camel urine (with a long history of alleged medicinal qualities) was closed by authorities after they found 70 camel-urine bottles actually filled with shopkeeper urine. About a decade ago, several fastfood restaurants (especially during evening shifts staffed by sometimes inadequately trained managers) were plagued by a prank phone-caller, posing as law enforcement requesting investigative help, asking managers to stripsearch employees for contraband and to describe the searches in real time to the caller. (A suspect was arrested, and the calls stopped.) Managerial judgment was also on display at a Morro Bay, California, Burger King in January when a prank caller somehow convinced BK employees to begin shattering the stores windows because of a purported gas leak. Several windows were smashed in, and an investigation of the call is ongoing. Awkward: In January, Israeli television journalist Eitam Lachover became the latest to be injured in a high-profile test of a protective vest when he volunteered to be stabbed on camera for a news segment. Vest company officials faces turned quickly sour as the blade penetrated the vest (though the wound was described as light). In January, 15-year-old Anthony Ruelas, trying to rescue a classmate gasping from an asthma attack, became the latest casualty in public schools relentless insistence on zero tolerance of any deviation from rules. Gateway Middle School in Killeen, Texas, suspended Ruelas for two days for what others called his heroic assistance in gathering the girl in his arms and taking her to the nurses office while the teacher, following procedure, waited passively for a nurse to email instructions. (Ruelas had defied the teacher, declaring, (F-word) that we aint got time to wait for no email from the nurse.) The school districts superintendent later cited a federal law that he interpreted as justifying the procedure. Age-Old Prank Fails: Will Lombardi, 19, was charged with arson in Northampton, Massachusetts, in January after he acknowledged that probably he was the one who left a flaming box of excrement on the front porch of the family with whose daughter he was feuding. The fire was supposed to alarm the victim, who would try to stomp it out, thus spreading the feces and soiling the stompers shoes. In this case, however, the fire had spread a bit. (Bonus: Lombardis box selection was a used mailer with Lombardis name and address still readable.)Least competent criminals(1) In January, a 27-year-old man in North Pole, Alaska, became the most recent forced to flee a crime scene on foot because he had locked his keys inside the getaway car. He was identified by surveillance video outside the two businesses he burglarized, but he was still at large. (2) Also in January, David Boulet, in Tacoma, Washington, became the most recent to haplessly try to steal a police car. As officers chased him on an earlier charge, Boulet spotted a parked, marked squa d car (with lights flashing), but apparently thought, in the nights darkness, that the car was momentarily unoccupied. He climbed in and landed on the lap of a Tacoma police sergeant in the front seat. Undignified deaths: (1) A 47-yearold man in Saint-Marcel, Italy, fell to his death in January as he leaned over a balcony railing to shake crumbs off his tablecloth after breakfast. The tablecloth reportedly slipped from his hands, leading him to (unsuccessfully) reach for it. (2) A 58-year-old driver dressed except for pants was killed in January in Detroit when he was thrown from his car by a crash. A Michigan State Police spokesman reported that the man had been viewing pornography as he drove. NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERDDistributed by Universal Press Syndicate

(239) 415-7576 DNA studies show that shelter workers often mislabel dogs as pit bulls, limiting adoptions UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDADNA results show that shelter workers are often mistaken when they label a dog as a pit bull, with potentially devastating consequences for the dogs, a new University of Florida study has found. Animal shelter staff and veterinarians are frequently expected to guess the breed of dogs based on appearance alone, said Julie Levy, a professor of shelter medicine at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine and the lead author of a study published recently in The Veterinary Journal. Unlike many other things people cant quite define but know when they see it, identification of dogs as pit bulls can trigger an array of negative consequences, from the loss of housing, to being seized by animal control, to the taking of the dogs life, she said. In the high-stakes world of animal shelters, a dogs life might depend on a potential adopters momentary glimpse and assumptions about its suitability as a pet. If the shelter staff has labeled the dog as a pit bull, its chances for adoption automatically go down in many shelters. The past few decades have brought an increase in ownership restrictions on breeds including pit bulls and dogs that resemble them. The restrictions are based on assumptions that certain breeds are inherently dangerous, that such dogs can be reliably identified and that the restrictions will improve public safety, the study states. The study focused on how accurately shelter staff identified dogs believed to be pit bulls. Pit bull is not a recognized breed, but a term applied to dogs derived from the heritage breeds American Staffordshire terrier or Staffordshire bull terrier. The purebred American pit bull terrier is also derived from these breeds and is often included in the loose definition of pit bull. The research team evaluated breed assessments of 120 dogs made by 16 shelter staff members, including four veterinarians, at four shelters. These staff members all had at least three years of experience working in a shelter environment. The researchers then COURTESY PHOTODr. Julie Levy, who led the study on identification of pit bulls, plays with a dog at Alachua County Animal Services.
took blood samples from the dogs, developed DNA profiles for each animal and compared the DNA findings against the staffs initial assessments. We found that different shelter staffers who evaluated the same dogs at the same time had only a moderate level of agreement among themselves, Ms. Levy said. Results of the study also showed that while limitations in available DNA profiles make absolute breed identification problematic, when visual identification was compared with DNA test results, the assessors in the study fared even worse. Dogs with pit bull heritage breed DNA were identified only 33 to 75 percent of the time, depending on which of the staff members was judging them. Conversely, dogs lacking any genetic evidence of relevant breeds were labeled as pit bull-type dogs from 0 to 48 percent of the time, the researchers reported. Essentially we found that the marked lack of agreement observed among shelter staff members in categorizing the breeds of shelter dogs illustrates that reliable inclusion or exclusion of dogs as pit bulls is not possible, even by experts, Ms. Levy said. These results raise difficult questions because shelter workers and veterinarians are expected to determine the breeds of dogs in their facilities on a daily basis. Additionally, they are often called on as experts as to whether a dogs breed will trigger confiscation or regulatory action. The stakes for these dogs and their owners are in many cases very high. Dog breeds contain many genetic traits and variants, and the behavior of any individual dog is impossible to predict based on possible combinations. A dogs physical appearance cannot tell observers anything about its behavior. Even dogs of similar appearance and the same breed often have diverse behavioral traits in the same way that human siblings often have very different personalities, she said. As for legal restrictions on dogs based on their appearance, Ms. Levy said public safety would be better served by reducing risk factors for dog bites, such as supervising children, recognizing canine body language, avoiding an unfamiliar dog in its territory, neutering dogs and raising puppies to be social companions. The study was funded by Maddies Fund and the Merial Veterinary Scholars Program and was co-authored by UF veterinary medical student Kimberly Olson and Bo Norby of Michigan State Universitys College of Veterinary Medicine. Also contributing to the research were Michael Crandall, of UF; Jennifer Broadhurst of the Jacksonville Humane Society; Stephanie Jacks of Jacksonville Animal Care and Protective Services; Rachel Barton of Tallahassee Animal Services; and Martha Zimmerman of Marion County Animal Services.

Tips can reduce the risk of fallsIBERIABANK has partnered with the Collier Injury Prevention Coalition to host a seminar about the dangers of falling and the simple steps that can be taken to reduce falls for people of all ages. The free program starts at 5 p.m. Thursday, March 3, at IBERIABANK branch at 1905 Pine Ridge Road. Studies show that 20 percent of seniors in the U.S. who fall are hospitalized with moderate to severe injuries and that 11 percent of them never return home and 50 percent of them die within one year. We hope to improve local statistics through prevention and education, says Mark Tesoro, injury prevention educator with Lee Memorial Health System. At the seminar, he and members of the Collier Injury Prevention Coalition will demonstrate fall prevention products, provide complimentary balance testing, discuss medication management and suggest safety features that can be installed in the home. The first hour is for a welcome reception and clinic; the formal presentation starts at 6 p.m. Reservations are required. Call 403-5170. Fibromyalgia remains a puzzling condition for 5 million in U.S. NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHFibromyalgia is a long-term (chronic) pain condition that affects 5 million or more Americans ages 18 and older. For unknown reasons, most people diagnosed with fibromyalgia are women, although men and children also can be affected. People with certain disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus, may also have fibromyalgia, which can affect their disease course and treatment. Fibromyalgia can take a powerful toll on health, well-being, and quality of life. People with fibromyalgia suffer from severe, daily pain that is widespread throughout the body, says Dr. Leslie J. Crofford, an NIH-supported researcher at Vanderbilt University. Their pain is typically accompanied by debilitating fatigue, sleep that does not refresh them, and problems with thinking and memory. People with fibromyalgia often see many doctors before finally receiving a diagnosis. The main symptoms pain and fatigue overlap with those of many other conditions, which can complicate the diagnosis. To make things more challenging, there are no blood tests or X-rays that are abnormal in people with the disorder, says Dr. Crofford. With no specific diagnostic test, some doctors may question whether a patients pain is real. Even friends, family, and co-workers may have a difficult time understanding the persons symptoms, Dr. Crofford says. A doctor familiar with fibromyalgia can make a diagnosis based on the criteria established by the American College of Rheumatology. Diagnostic symptoms include a history of widespread pain lasting more than three months and other symptoms such as fatigue. In making the diagnosis, doctors consider the number of areas throughout the body where the patient had pain in the past week, and they rule out other causes of disease. What causes fibromyalgia isnt fully understood. Many factors likely contribute. We know that people with fibromyalgia have changes in the communication between the body and the brain, Dr. Crofford says. These changes may lead the brain to interpret certain sensations as painful that might not be bothersome to people without the disorder. Researchers have found several genes that may affect a persons risk of developing fibromyalgia. Stressful life events may also play a role. Fibromyalgia isnt a progressive disease, so it doesnt get worse over time and may even improve. Its never fatal, and it wont harm the joints, muscles or internal organs. Medications may help relieve some but not all symptoms of fibromyalgia. Drug treatments by themselves dont result in remission or cure of fibromyalgia, says Dr. Crofford. Weve learned that exercise may work as well as or better than medications. In addition, therapies such as tai chi, yoga and cognitive behavior therapy can also help to reduce symptoms. People with fibromyalgia often have the best results when treated with multiple therapies. Its critically important for health care providers to help patients develop an understanding of fibromyalgia, and to provide realistic information about treatments, with an emphasis on using exercise and other physical therapies in conjunction with medications, Dr. Crofford says. Dr. Crofford and her colleagues are exploring whether a treatment called TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) can help people with fibromyalgia exercise more comfortably and reduce pain. She and other NIH-funded teams are also seeking markers of fibromyalgia in the blood that might ultimately lead to more targeted and effective treatments.

My recent tour of this new facility at the corner of Immokalee Road and Collier Boulevard was a real eyeopener. NCH Northeast is a 40,000-square-foot, two-story building with a full-service ER on the first floor, complemented by a complete radiology department with an MRI, CT scanner, ultrasound and plain X-ray. A threeperson physical therapy unit completes the first floor. The second floor includes 12 physicians offices, each with three exam rooms, along with all the accoutrements for office-based practices and a conference room. Drs. Brian and Monica Menichello and Erik and Karen Hiester are the first to relocate to the second floor along with practice manager Mark Maloney and assistants Harmony Barone, Sharon Johnson, Kelly Mesman, Michael Pasqua and Amber Piper. One common theme emerged as I chatted with Erin Lawrence, Tatiana Robles, Judy Woodman, Ed Woodman and charge nurse Caitlin Goodwin in the new ER: Patients and staff alike love it. The atmosphere and culture are wonderful, with natural lighting coming from many windows and a quiet, comforting feeling created by sliding glass doors on each exam room that separate patients and families from the usual hustle and bustle of a busy ER. Wendell McClurg III leads this busy unit as assistant ER nursing director. He and his staff have already cared for 80 patients in a day, delivered a baby, diagnosed and treated heart attacks and strokes and assisted families and victims of various accidents. The facility is wired for teleneurology, which allows for a neurological consult within minutes for a patient with a suspected stroke (this service also exists at our North Naples campus, which will soon complete a major two-year renovation, and at our downtown Baker Hospital, which is scheduled for renovation). The NCH Northeast staff can also transfuse patients needing blood and lately has treated patients suffering bites from pygmy rattlesnakes, raccoons and other wild animals. About 98 percent of patients walk in, although we have full EMS capacity. About 20 percent of patients are children who, ultimately, we will direct to the soon-tobe-completed Robert, Mariann and Megan MacDonald Pediatric ER on the North Collier campus. Dr. Silvio Travalia recently became the first cardiologist to practice at NCH Northeast. He and I both started practice in Naples in 1977 and used to drive past the future location of NCH Northeast to enjoy family outings in the Audubon Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. The area back then was relatively uninhabited and wild. How times have changed. In many ways I think NCH Northeast, with its combination of ER and doctors offices, might be the best facility NCH has ever built. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org Meet Dr. Kent V.

Orr, OD, MD, MD, OD, OD SWFLEYE.COM CALL TODAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT! BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickAccording to the Roman calendar, its 2016. The Chinese calendar proclaims this the year of the red fire monkey. At our house, it appears to be the year of the lame dog. Keeper started limping during a walk last month. A veterinary exam found some slight muscle atrophy, but X-rays didnt show any degenerative changes that might indicate arthritis. His limping may have been due to an unusually long walk after a holiday layoff the wellknown weekend warrior syndrome. Then Gemma took a tumble down the stairs. She immediately got up and shook herself off. We counted ourselves lucky that she didnt seem to have any damage, but about 10 days later we noticed a reluctance to climb the stairs (she gets carried going down) and some slight difficulty scratching her ear with a hind leg. Off to the veterinarian she went. The diagnosis was arthritis, not unusual in a 16-year-old dog. In both cases, the remedy was rest and pain relief. Both dogs were back to normal within a few days. But lameness can be more serious in both dogs and cats. Heres what you should know if your pet starts having trouble walking. Arthritis. This painful degenerative joint disease affects most dogs and cats as they age. Large breeds or overweight animals are at highest risk, but pets of any size can become arthritic. Animals with arthritis may be reluctant to go up or down stairs, unwilling to jump on or off furniture, move sl owly and stiffly as they rise from the floor, or wince when you pet them. If you notice any of these signs in your pet, ask your veterinarian about medication or other therapies that can help, such as acupuncture, massage and weight loss. Heart disease. In cats with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, sudden lameness may result from a blood clot that lodges in the blood vessels that supply the rear legs. This can cause a sudden onset of paralysis. Take your cat to the veterinarian right away. Cruciate ligament tear. This is the most common orthopedic problem veterinarians see in dogs. The cranial cruciate ligament connects the thighbone to the shinbone and keeps the knee, or stifle, joint stable. When this ligament tears usually because a dog is overweight; out of condition; jumps, twists, turns or lands wrong on a slick surface; gets body slammed by another dog during rough play; or has had a previous CCL injury on the opposite leg its instantly painful and can lead to painful degenerative joint disease if it goes unrepaired. Bone cancer. Lameness or reluctance to put weight on a limb can signal osteosarcoma, the most frequently diagnosed bone tumor in dogs and cats. Depending on the location of the tumor, you may be able to feel a hard lump or swelling on the bone. Diagnosis requires an X-ray and biopsy. Osteosarcoma can be treated with amputation and chemotherapy, and the majority of pets get around well on three legs. Any time your dog appears to be lame, he needs to be seen by the veterinarian. To diagnose the problem, your veterinarian may manipulate the legs to check range of motion or perform a neurological exam to check gait, reflexes and other reactions. Depending on the history and severity of lameness, X-rays or an MRI may be necessary. Whatever the cause, your dog can likely be helped. Treatment can relieve pain, improve function and slow the advancement of osteoarthritis. Rest, medication, physical rehab and, if necessary, surgery are among the options that can help him recover and continue the walks, hikes, runs or dog sports that are part of your lives together. Keep pets lean to help reduce the risk of arthritis and CCL tears.

Maria has always been not only beautiful, but also glamorous. Shes a fashionista and festive reveler whom Ive traveled with to New York, Boston, Las Vegas and more, and she loves to have fun and shop up a storm. Ive got to show you these new shoes I bought, Maria said as we were catching up. She stuck her foot out. Theyre SO comfortable. They have built-in memory foam! I took a look. They sort of resembled Skechers. Then I considered my own shoes: flat sandals with Velcro straps, a brand called SAS that features Tripad Comfort. My God, Maria, I replied. What has become of us? Maria and I and more than a few of our friends burned up dance floors across Southwest Florida from around 1998-2005, and none of us would have ever dreamed of leaving the house in anything less than 5-inch heels. Not only did we spend the whole night in them walking from club to club, we were well-known to climb up onto bars and dance in them (there were never any injuries and thank the Baby Jesus that social media and smartphones werent a thing back then whew). Maria was always into sexy stilettos with ankle straps; I was always scoring retro pumps at vintage boutiques. Think ridiculously pointy toes and precarious, skinny heels. But when you find a pair from the s in red patent leather for $7 that look amazing with your ankle-length jeans, not only will you grab them, youll wear them constantly despite the fact that they cause your feet to go completely numb within 20 minutes. Since our sexy-shoe wearing days, Maria has had major foot surgery, and Ive been treated for plantar fasciitis and heel spurs and have had a surgical overhaul on my left knee. When I was in my 20s, I had a part-time job at a Birkenstock shoe store on Fort Myers Beach. I remember elderly ladies (looking back now, I realize these dear seniors were actually in their mid-40s to mid-50s, but when youre 25, everyone who isnt you is as old as dirt) would come into the store complaining of bunions, bad toes and back pain. As they plopped down more than $100 for a pair of comfy yet most unsexy Birkenstocks, 99 percent of them blamed their aches and pains on the high heels they wore when they were younger. Alas, I finally get it. Im only 5-foot-3 and am no fan of looking dowdy, matronly or, worst of all, dumpy. But Im not going to take a chance in super high heels only to trip on a curb and end up with a cast and crutches. Casts and crutches are so not sexy. Thanks to my informal Facebook poll of girlfriends age 40 and older, I have happily discovered that Maria and I are not alone. When I asked who still rocks really high, precarious, uncomfortable yet sexy heels, about 80 percent of 113 respondents confessed they have surrendered to flats for a variety of reasons including health, safety and quality of life (apparently, Im not the only one who has taken a spill a time or two). Many said theyve compromised. Some call it the two-hour heel shoes with 3to 5-inch heels that they can handle only if they put a time limit on it (and they have a pair of flats in the car to change into once the pain sets in). Others have embraced the solace and safety of the wedge heel, sort of the lower level of sexy shoes for women of a certain age who arent yet ready for memory foam soles. On the other hand, a few respondents proudly refuse to retire the sparkly, designer high heels that make their calf muscles pop and their legs look ultra shapely. My friend Gloria, a chef and restaurateur, is one of them. From Gucci to Versace, she owns hundreds of pairs of dangerously sexy shoes. But even she says she stays away from any heels higher than 4 inches anymore. Perhaps a good friend who just turned 50 last month said it best when she declared: I have enough high heels in my closet to pay for a trip around the world and back. I still wear them, but choose wisely, meaning events that dont involve too many blocks of walking or hours of standing. Ive embraced the wedge more. This is, indeed, a difficult life transition. The designer who figures out how to put memory foam into some super-cute wedges will surely rule the world at least for ladies of a certain age. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week M I a o p s e i z i n y a s a m m o o w lo stephanieDAVIS email@example.com STEPHANIE DAVIS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe writers friend Gloria actually walks around in these.

Just get your return in. Another easy way to prevent that is to get an Identity Protection Personal Identification Number on IRS.gov. See how below. Three, if you dont file on your own, youll be doing your tax preparer a solid by not waiting until the last minute. Four, youll be a participant in one of the worlds vast accounting procedures along with 150 million Americans (including more than 9.3 million Floridians) that the IRS expects to file an individual tax return this year. The best website to get accurate information about filing your taxes is IRS.gov. Gather forms and paperwork Keep an eye on the mail and collect all forms labeled important tax information. Thats one starting point for a lot of average clients, said Kevin Gosse, enrolled agent and tax consultant for Legacy Tax & Accounting in Lake Suzy. They can review last years tax return. Thatll give them an indication of what forms theyre watching for. If you have one job and no other income, you may only need a Form W-2 to file. Maybe youre gathering paperwork that represents a variety of income from stocks or properties; charitable and other itemized tax deductions; or credits such as the Lifetime Learning Credit (up to $2,000 per student for the fifth year and on of undergraduate, graduate and professional degree courses, including courses to improve job skills). If you have any questions on anything unusual, you need to have a conversation with your preparer, said CPA JoAnn Wagner, a shareholder of the firm LKD in Jupiter. You just never know what the ramifications are, if it will save you some money or is something you need to address.The new 1095 health insurance forms The IRS is keeping track of your health insurance due to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Thats why most of us this year, and mostly for the first time, are getting a Form 1095 in the mail from health insurance companies sometime between Feb. 1 and March 31. Its not much of a difference because most people dont even need them to file their tax return, Mr. Gosse said. If you didnt have health insurance the penalty increased a little bit. Other than that there are not a lot of changes this year. The 1095 forms show the health insurance you had last year on a monthly basis. If there are any months when you didnt have it, there is likely a tax penalty, depending on your income. There are three 1095 forms: a 1095-A, -B, and -C. If you get a 1095-A youre going to need that to do your tax return, Mr. Gosse explains, because 1095-A is from the federal government Health Insurance Marketplace and is important for people who got Obamacare subsidies. They cant file without it and if they do theyll have to amend it probably. If its a B or C, that means you enrolled outside the federal Health Insurance Marketplace, on your own or through an employer. You can probably do the return without them. The B and C only show that you had health insurance and for what parts of the year you had health insurance, Mr. Gosse said. More information: irs.gov/AffordableCare-Act/Questions-and-Answers-aboutHealth-Care-Information-Forms-for-Individuals.Filing for free You might file on your own, use commercial tax-prep software such as TurboTax, or hire a professional preparer. In any case, 80 percent of those filing returns are expected to e-file and have it direct deposited into their bank account. That, the IRS says, remains the fastest and safest way to file an accurate income tax return and receive a refund. The IRS plans to issue 90 percent of refunds in less than 21 days. Seventy-percent of taxpayers, or those with adjusted gross income below $62,000, are eligible to get free commercial tax-prep software through the IRS and file for free.

That results in hassles and delays when you try to process your return. One thing you can do to avoid tax return fraud is to file as early as possible. The other is to get an Identity Protection Personal Identification Number. If youve already been a victim of tax fraud, the IRS has already assigned you an IP PIN. Even if you have not been a victim of tax return fraud, one of the best ways to prevent it is to get an IP PIN anyway, said cybersecurity expert Ms. Kerskie. Get one by going to IRS.gov and enter IP PIN in the search box in the top right corner or irs.gov/Individuals/GetAn-Identity-Protection-PIN. Follow the instructions to create an account with a User ID and get an IP PIN. If the IRS receives a tax return without your IP PIN it will automatically be rejected. The six-digit number is renewed each year. Every year the IRS will email you a new PIN, Ms. Kerskie said. Its a nobrainer. Its a way to reduce if not prevent tax return fraud. (Ms. Kerskie notes that many people also have a PIN for e-filing. That is a different, unrelated PIN). The IP PIN is a program started in the last few years by the IRS for areas such as Florida, Georgia and Washington, D.C., which are hardest hit by tax return fraud. Ms. Kerskie said the program still has some kinks to be worked out: A few weeks ago, for instance, the website wasnt working. Also, if you have a credit freeze on your credit report youll need to contact Equifax to have it temporarily lifted so you can get an IP PIN. Dont take these calls Many have been getting threatening phone calls or robo-calls from someone claiming to represent the IRS and, for instance, claiming that you are being audited and demanding payment. But the IRS doesnt cold-call people. It still seems like the top scam is the phone calls, said Mr. Gosse. But one thing people have to understand is the IRS will never call you, you know? So as soon as you get a call from the IRS you know its a scam. Another sign it is a fraud is if they ask you to pay using a prepaid debit card. If they get any phone calls from people pretending to be the IRS, especially if theyre demanding payment over the phone or if theres a warrant for their arrest or whatever, just hang up, Ms. Kerskie advises. And dont believe the caller ID. It doesnt matter. I can make the caller ID say whatever I want.The IRS on Feb. 18 reported a 400 percent surge in email phishing and malware incidents over last year, asking consumers for various information related to refunds, filing status and personal information. Some consumers have received variations of such emails in text messages. Dont click on emails claiming to be from the IRS. The IRS likes to send lettersThe IRS is old-fashioned (yet entirely unsentimental) and will more likely contact you with a paper letter if theres a problem with your return. Dont mistakenly ignore a letter thinking its a scam. For one, it could be your first red flag that youre a victim of tax return fraud. But to be safe, instead of calling the number on the letter, go to IRS.gov and call the phone number listed on the website.

MONEY & INVESTINGInternet sales, strong dollar slow Wal-Mart growth; optimism advisedTo most people, listening to a public companys quarterly earnings conference call would not be the most exciting way to spend their morning. However, I have been an investor in Wal-Mart for a couple of months now so I tuned in to their latest call last week to see how the company was doing. Unfortunately for me and the thousands of other investors of the stock, the companys earnings were not spectacular and the stock fell a bit in trading after the release. But regardless of whether you own the stock (and you do if you own any index funds or ETFs), the release itself highlighted several important economic and financial trends that should be noted by any investor. The first noteworthy part of the call had to do with Wal-Marts return on its massive investment in e-commerce. Last year the company spent around a billion dollars on its Internet sales platform and expects to do the same this year in order to compete against Amazon. With such a massive investment, investors were expecting big things during the Christmas season. Last year, its online sales increased 17 percent in the first quarter, 16 percent in the second quarter and 10 percent in the third quarter. For the last quarter, Internet sales only increased by 8 percent. Clearly, this trend is moving in the wrong direction for Wal-Mart and it shows how hard it is to compete against Amazon. To compare, Amazons sales increased 20 percent in the fourth quarter. Many analysts believed that if anyone could compete against Amazon, it was Wal-Mart, given its world-class logistics and purchasing power, but so far its results have been lackluster at best. Investors will continue to scrutinize Wal-Marts online sales in the next few quarters to see if they can start to take any market share away from Amazon. A second highlight in the Wal-Mart call had to do with its expenses. Since its founding, Wal-Mart has always prided itself in keeping expenses low, from the cost of its products to the maintenance of its stores to its employee expenses. However, lately this policy has backfired somewhat as the retailer has taken heat for paying its employees too little and not having clean and well-presented stores. So Wal-Mart agreed to increase the wages of its employees and spent large sums of money on improving its stores. Unfortunately, neither of these two expenditures has paid off so far. Comparable sales in Wal-Mart stores increased by an anemic .6 percent. So will the largest private employer in the U.S. reverse its course and start to bring down its expenses again? The company indicated that it still believes in investing in its associates and physical locations but I believe unless Wal-Mart sees an uptick in sales soon, it may reverse course on these expenditures. Wal-Mart also spent time on its call discussing the effect of the strong dollar on its earnings, a common theme among many large companies. In fact, the company said that the strong dollar reduced earnings by 4 cents a share. This may not seem like a large number until you realize that Wal-Mart has over 3.2 billion shares of stock outstanding, which means that 4 cents a share translates to over $128 million in lost profitability. In one quarter. So while cheaper imports do help Wal-Mart somewhat by keeping its product costs low, its international sales are harmed by a much larger amount. Many multinational companies are facing similar headwinds, a problem I believe we will continue to see in the months and years ahead. Finally, Wal-Marts call highlighted the law of large numbers. Even large companies like Wal-Mart are expected to grow each and every quarter. But Wal-Mart has sales of $130 billion per quarter. Americans, on average, spent around $900 last year at WalMart. It is very hard to grow from those numbers. Which is why the retailer, like many other similar U.S. companies, was counting on international growth and e-commerce to fuel its net income. But with Amazon clearly still the undisputed champion of Internet sales and the strong dollar making Wal-Marts products more expensive, growth at the retailer is challenging. But I wouldnt count Wal-Mart out just yet. Its pricing power with major brands is a major competitive advantage and it is still the leader in groceries. Plus, its investments in its facilities and employees may be a drag today but I believe it will pay off handsomely down the line. Lastly, the company continues to raise its dividend, which is nice in todays zero interest rate environment. Clearly, as an investor, I am counting on the company to turn things around and it will be a very interesting stock to follow in the months and years ahead.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. No Earnings? Check the PSRMany investors look at a companys price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio to get a rough sense of how overvalued or undervalued it seems. If the company has no earnings, though (perhaps because its still young and growing, or has fallen on tough times), the P/E doesnt work. Thats when you can look at its priceto-sales ratio (PSR), which is focused on sales (or revenue), not earnings. The PSR takes the market capitalization of a company and divides it by the last 12 months sales. The market cap is the current value that the market is giving the company, arrived at by multiplying the current share price by the number of shares outstanding. Imagine that Economical Aviaries Inc. (Ticker: CHEEP) has 20 million shares outstanding, at $10 a share, giving it a market capitalization of $200 million. If it had $400 million in sales over the last year, its PSR would be 0.50. ($200 million divided by $400 million is 0.50.) Now imagine that Economical Aviaries is currently losing money, but expects to be profitable soon. If its peers have PSRs of 1.0 or higher, its PSR of 0.5 suggests that its likely to have a substantial upside relative to its competitors if it executes its strategies successfully. Many companies go through some years when they are not profitable. This doesnt mean theyre worthless and theres no way to compare them or assess their valuation. Just use the PSR instead of the P/E ratio, measuring how much youd be paying for a dollar of sales instead of a dollar of earnings. Compare the PSR with sales growth, too. A high PSR isnt necessarily bad if sales are growing rapidly. Still, remember that the PSR or any other measure should never be the only one you consider. It can reflect a companys value relative to its peers, but sales must be transformed into rising earnings to please investors. Ultimately, the value of a company and stock is based on how much in earnings it generates. Facebook FaceplantMy worst investment decision (so far) was getting out of Facebook at a loss but I have done very well with other stocks, such as Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies, Costco, TransDigm Group and Berkshire Hathaway. As long as you have more gains than losses in your portfolio, over time it will grow beyond your expectations. L.H., onlineThe Fool Responds: Youre right; losses are inevitable in investing, and they can be outweighed by gains. Better still, the more we read up on and learn about investing, the fewer mistakes we may make, and the smaller our losses might be. Facebook, like some other dynamic fast-growers, often seems overvalued. The stock recently sported a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 77, well above the S&P 500s P/E ratio of 20. That certainly seems astronomical, but Facebooks P/E ratio topped 100 in 2015 and 140 in 2013. Moreover, this is a company with fat net profit margins near 20 percent, and revenue and earnings growing by annual averages of 55 percent and 43 percent, respectively, over the past five years. Fast-growers with promising futures often command and maintain lofty valuations, at least during their growth spurts. Many expect Facebook to find lots of ways to make money off its billion-plus daily users. The company was recently raking in about $18 billion annually, while generating $6 billion in free cash flow. Time for Chipotle?As youve probably heard, Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG) has been going through a rough patch, experiencing an E. coli outbreak across several states, a norovirus incident and ongoing federal investigations. Such things tend to send stocks falling, and Chipotles stock was recently down about 30 percent over the past year.So is Chipotle a good buy now? Well, it all depends on whether you see the companys troubles as temporary ones or permanent ones. One promising sign is that the Centers for Disease Control have said that the E. coli outbreaks appear to be over.Meanwhile, Chipotle recently released its worst quarterly earnings report ever, featuring revenue down 7 percent year over year. Still, theres reason to be hopeful about Chipotles future. The company is returning its focus to marketing, implementing its food safety program and rebuilding sales. A number of Wall Street analysts have upgraded their ratings on the company, citing recovering sales and a general willingness among consumers to return to the eatery. Management, confident of that, is investing heavily to ensure that its ready to meet that demand, planning to open 220 to 235 new restaurants in 2016. While Chipotles road may be bumpy in the next few quarters, it has a good chance of returning to its former trajectory of strong profit growth. Consider keeping an eye on it. (The Motley Fool has recommended and owns shares of Chipotle.) I trace my roots back to 1976, when my current CEO opened a flower shop called Flora Plenty in New York. Today, based in Long Island, I rake in more than a billion dollars annually, selling gourmet food and floral gifts.

Think of socially responsible investing, where investors avoid certain kinds of companies, such as those involved in tobacco, guns, alcohol or defense. Similarly, investors who adhere to Islamic tenets also screen out certain industries. They will generally avoid companies focused on alcohol, gambling, pornography and pork and often weapon, tobacco, hotel and media companies, among others.Islamic finance is also known for a prohibition against paying or earning interest. Thus, Islamic investors will not invest in many financial services companies such as banks and insurers. Even nonfinancial companies might be rejected if they receive a significant sum of interest in their income.Some Islamic investors get around that by donating to charity the portion of earnings derived from interest. While mutual funds will typically keep cash in interest-bearing accounts until its invested, Islam-compliant mutual funds may instead just keep the cash as cash.The avoidance of financial companies for any reason served investors very well during the big credit crisis some years ago. Shares of Citigroup, for example, plunged 73 percent in 2008 and Bank of America dropped 60 percent. (Some other financial giants went out of business entirely.) Islamic investors must avoid bonds, because of their interest payments, but they can seek income from real estate investments and other assetbased income-producing investments.***QHow can I find out if my companys 401(k) plan is covered by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation?

REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY B9 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 2, 2016Despite a slight decrease in overall pending and closed sales, other areas of the Naples real estate market continue moving into a stable, balanced market between buyers and sellers, according to the latest report from the Naples Area Board of Realtors. NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). The NABOR report for the 12 months ending in January shows inventory during January this year rose 13 percent to 5,091 homes from 4,515 homes in January 2015. Average days on market in January 2016 decreased 14 percent to 75 days from 87 days in January 2015. These two areas of the report tell us that we are seeing a balanced market, broker Dominic Pallini at Vanderbilt Realty said in a NABOR press release. Others reviewing the report agreed that several external factors could have contributed to this stability in the real estate market, including unpredictable activity in the stock market, dramatic decreases in oil prices, a harsh Canadian exchange rate and the fact that it is a presidential election year. Inventory levels are rising because prices are now at a point where sellers can see profits again, so they are putting their homes on the market, Mr. Pallini said, adding the drop in days on the market could be due to price reductions. The January report showed doubledigit increases in inventory for all price segments above $300,000. The $500,000 to $1 million segment experienced the highest increase, going up 26 percent to 1,245 homes in January 2016 from 990 homes in January 2015. In the single-family home market, this same price category had a 31 percent increase in inventory to 829 homes in January 2016 from 632 homes in January 2015. Yet surprisingly, while inventory in the condominium market also rose in every price category above $300,000, it was the $1 million to $2 million category that saw the biggest jump with a 39 percent increase to 201 condominiums in January 2016 from 145 condominiums in January 2015. Phil Wood, president and EO of John R. Wood Properties, said inventory is up by nearly 600 homes since last January, which equates to 6.1 months of inventory, the highest since April 2013. Buyer opportunities improve with the increase House Hunting:Tucked into the heart of Park Shore, this three-bedroom home is like a private oasis. The double-door entry opens to a welldesigned plan that leads to a substantially sized covered deck area and a screened 35-foot custom-designed pool beyond. The backyard surrounds are a gardeners delight with sunny western exposure, fruit trees and blooming plants that enhance privacy and beauty. Broker associate Cheryl Turner of Premier Sothebys International Realty has the listing for $1,150,000.

GOLF, TENNIS AND GULF ACCESS! PENDING prices are now at a point where sellers can see profits again, so they are putting their homes on the market. Dominic Pallini, broker Vanderbilt Realtyin inventory. While not evident in the report, Realtors in the field are seeing investment properties come back onto the market, Brenda Fioretti, managing broker at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty, said. And even though the report showed a 23 percent decrease in overall pending sales for existing homes year over year, it was probably offset by an increase in new home sales. The NABOR January 2016 market report provides comparisons of singlefamily home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. The January 2016 sales statistics include these overall (single-family and condominium) findings: Overall pending sales decreased 23 percent to 847 in January 2016 from 1,103 in January 2015. Pending sales for condominiums in the $1 million to $2 million category increased 14 percent to 32 condominiums in January 2016 from 28 condominiums in January 2015. Pending sales for condominiums in the $2 million and above category spiked 100 percent to 22 condominiums in January 2016 from 11 condominiums in January 2015. Overall closed sales decreased 1 percent to 9,712 homes in the 12 months ending January 2016 from 9,827 homes in the 12 months ending January 2015. Closed sales for single-family homes in the Immokalee/Ave Maria area rose 78 percent to 48 single-family homes in the 12 months ending January 2016 from 27 single-family homes in the 12 months ending January 2015. The overall median closed price increased 13 percent to $309,000 in the 12 months ending January 2016 from $273,000 in the 12 months ending January 2015. The overall median closed price for homes over $300,000 decreased 4 percent to $520,000 in the 12 months ending January 2016 from $540,000 in the 12 months ending January 2015. Overall inventory increased 13 percent to 5,091 homes in January 2016 from 4,515 homes in January 2015. Average days on market decreased 14 percent to 75 days in January 2016 from 87 days in January 2015. One month does not a market make, however, Mr. Pallini stressed. We wont have a picture of how sales this season will play out until April or May. The only thing we know for certain is that buyers have many more options now than last year.

Theres so much darkness and secrecy surrounding them like the Bermunda Triangle. Playwright Eve EnslerHow could such a common anatomical feature, possessed by 51 percent of the worlds population and responsible for the deposit of practically every living being into the terrestrial realm, be such a shameful topic? Unlike its male counterpart, the word vagina is whispered if its ever spoken at all, even though it determines the life course of every human born with one. This position, as well as many others, is poignantly expressed in Eve Enslers The Vagina Monologues, which local audiences can see at 6 p.m. Sunday, March 6, at the Sugden Community Theater courtesy of Project HELP.

In fact, it can be downright challenging. Just ask Randy Jones, whos playing Frankensteins monster in the Naples Players upcoming production of Young Frankenstein March 2 through April 3.

The only reason it did, he says, is because Mel Brooks 1974 movie a spoof on the 1931 classic Frankenstein and its 1939 sequel, Son of Frankenstein was filmed in black and white.

Forge. 368 pages. Hardcover, $25.99. Sarasota resident David Hagbergs 70-plus novels include the popular Kirk McGarvey series, of which this is the latest. In it, former CIA director McGarvey returns to action in a high-stakes assignment that tests all his skills, experience and resolve. Pakistan is on the edge of chaos, and a quickly emerging leader, self-named Messiah, is on the verge of taking over but to what end? With four stolen nuclear weapons out of Pakistani government control, its likely that more than Pakistans future is in jeopardy. Tasked by President Charlene Miller with uncovering and stopping Messiah, McGarvey finds himself reluctantly teamed with attractive CIA agent Pete (yes, a girl named Pete) Boylan. Her love for him is obvious and admitted, though McGarvey, still called Mr. Director by old hands, is fearful of an intimate relationship, both professionally and personally. He has already lost too many people he has cared for: His wife, daughter and son-inlaw were killed by a bomb that exploded in a Georgetown restaurant. His mourning and guilt are ongoing, as is his determination to fulfill his duties. Its an uneasy mix. Pete wont stay out of the way. Shes a professional, too, and her skills are needed on this assignment. It is McGarveys conviction that Messiah is none other than a trusted and experienced CIA agent named David Haaris. Although hes been able to persuade some security higher-ups that this is a likely scenario, others including an assistant to the president are not convinced. Because the author allows readers to get into Haaris head, they know more about his motives and plans than any of the characters, including McGarvey. Haaris, a native of Pakistan who was raised in England, has learned that his cancer is terminal. He is not far away from death. A man who had lived with painful rejection as a child and as a university student, Haaris (in part through his charade as Messiah) is planning his revenge. He has a sophisticated scheme to use the remaining three of the four stolen nuclear missiles (one had been exploded, perhaps inadvertently, by Taliban forces) to bring destruction to New York City, Washington D.C., and London. The ticking clock presses readers to hope that McGarvey can discover and foil Haaris plan. The author incorporates a great deal of other ingredients as blocking or complicating forces. One of these is the chaos surrounding Pakistans leadership; another is the political infighting among the players in U.S. intelligence agencies; and yet another involves the tradecraft of intelligence operatives and the associated technological factors: weaponry, communications, disguises, transportation and so forth. The novel is chock full of great action scenes. Early on, we see Messiah decapitate Pakistans president in front of a huge mob. He then announces an alliance with the Taliban as the road to stability and peace. An almost incredible scene describes Haaris murdering his wife for reasons that only he, teetering into madness, can justify. In a nail-biter, McGarvey struggles to escape from incarceration by Pakistans military security forces. Mr. Hagbergs skill in devising and revealing his unique villains complex plan provides readers with great pleasure. Haaris has been putting the pieces together for many years, positioning what he needs to fulfill his mad vision. He seems to have thought of everything but has he really? A large caste of supporting characters, many of them government officials whom McGarvey must either depend on or circumvent, fleshes out the world in which the protagonist lives (or dies). Mr. Hagberg draws a similar grouping of Pakistani officials and their rivals. Indeed, the author portrays the heavy hand of bureaucracies either functional or not with frightening authority. The Fourth Horseman is thriller writing at its best by a long-established pro. About the authorBorn and raised in Duluth, Minn., David Hagberg joined the Air Force right out of high school and trained and worked as a cryptographer stationed in Greenland and Germany. Later, he was a cub reporter on the Duluth Herald & News-Tribune and a news desk editor for the Associated Press. His first novel, Twister (1975), has been followed by dozens of suspense novels, many nominated for prestigious book awards. He and his wife, Laurie, make their home in Sarasota, from where they enjoy sailing the west coast of the state and the Keys in their spare time. o s H c l i a philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com HAGBERG

Director James Alexander has traveled from Georgia to oversee the staging of the performance. Mr. Alexander is the founder of a company called Symphony V that realizes presentations for symphony orchestras and opera companies using pioneering lighting effects, 3D mapping and innovative sound technology. Symphony V is collaborating with Media Source Solutions in Miami to execute the complex technology specifically designed for this production. Its a combination sure to have the audience looking at Verdis 163-year-old opera in a whole new light. Patrons who are not operatically inclined will still recognize many of the arias in La Traviata from countless television commercials. To help make the evening even more memorable, The Ritz-Carlton is offering patrons a four-course, gourmet dinner in the hotel immediately before each performance. Appetizers and entre with wine will be served before the show and champagne and dessert will be served during intermission. Ramon Tebar, who conducted the London Philharmonic at the Royal Festival Hall last month, will conduct for Opera Naples. Tenor Andrej Dunaev will sing the role of Alfredo, and soprano Elizabeth Caballero has been cast in her signature role of Violetta. The role of Germont will be performed by Cuban-American baritone Nelson Martinez. Opera Naples is offering those who purchase tickets to La Traviata free tickets to one of two upcoming concerts at The David and Cecile Wang Opera Center: the Grammy Awardwinning Ying String Quartet (8 p.m. Tuesday, March 8) or An Evening in the Palacio de Zarzuela (8 p.m. Monday, April 18).

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 2, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYNo, its lighter than Kermit, he says. Its a little bit Jolly Green Giant green meets mucus green, he finally decides. Plus, the makeup has different shades of green. I have a scar. Different variations. Contours, he says. (Costume designer) Dot Auchmoody did a clever design to minimize the amount of makeup, Mr. Jones says. She created a custom green unitard he can wear, so the only part of him requiring green makeup is his face, ears and fingers. The unitard and makeup blend so well, he notes, that he cant even tell where one ends and the other begins, when looking at photos of himself in full costume. He also has an appliance he wears on top of his head, which includes a bulging forehead that appears to house a big brain, but doesnt. (Dr. Frankensteins hunchbacked assistant, Igor, gives him the brain of Abby Normal. An abnormal brain in an oversized monster not a good combo, as they come to discover.) Hes cut his hair short to accommodate the device, so it feels more comfortable sitting on his head. But the appliance covers one of his favorite modes of communication: his eyebrows. I act with my eyebrows, Mr. Jones boasts. I am the eyebrow king. I raise one, I raise the other. The appliance literally covers my eyebrows, (so all my acting) is in my facial expressions. It is much harder than I thought it would be. But its also going to make it much more rewarding than I anticipated. He also has to wear clunky black boots with 6-inch-high platforms. Hes been wearing them since the beginning of rehearsals, to break them in and get used to how they feel. He estimates they weigh 3 pounds apiece. From the beginning I was aware that I was lifting little weights every time I lifted my legs, he says. It really took some getting used to. Are they comfortable? I dont know if I would go that far. Theyre broken in and I am fairly accomplished in them. The biggest challenge was that he didnt want to step on any of the actors sitting on the floor in the hall to the rehearsal room. He himself would typically sit on the floor, but not for this show. Im 53 years old, he says. Nope, I just sit on a chair. If I sit on the floor, I dont know how many minutes it will take me to get up. He has a big tap dance number in the musical, when he dances to Irving Berlins Puttin on the Ritz with Dr. Frankenstein, played by James Little. Its a much bigger number in the musical than it was in the movie, says Mr. Jones. Walking in a characters shoes dictates movement, he says. Certainly, in this case, the shoes make the man. Its kind of built in. There is an extra awkwardness. I have to be careful, my center of gravity is a little bit different. I move more cautiously, my range of motion is less. My tap dancing skills are limited with or without the shoes. He didnt have much dialogue to memorize, as the vast majority of it is grunt and groans and moans and screams. But then, he says, he realized he had to go through his lines and figure out what every single grunt and groan means. Originally, he was responding to people as if he was understanding what they were saying to him. But director Dawn Lebrecht Fornara helped him realize that that wasnt so. She used the brilliant analogy of her dogs, Mr. Jones says. How much do they understand and at what point do they understand and learn new words and commands? She opened my eyes to determining not only what it is Im saying and what I mean, but how much of (others) dialogue I would actually be able to understand. He knows the movie, but has never seen the musical. The same goes for Ms. Fornara. Im a very big fan of the movie, she says. Im super excited to direct (this musical thats based on it). Its an iconic movie, with iconic lines and characters. I dont know how they did it on Broadway. I try to really keep the characters close to the movie, without being copies. She does know that the Broadway production was more of a spectacle. The community theater doesnt have that kind of budget, so shes had to be creative. We had to be really smart about things, but I think theyll work out very nicely. Its a huge show, she says, noting that, like The Producers, there are numerous set and scene changes. Youre never in the same location, she says. You have to have a quick set change in virtually no time. Its a big show, a big cast, and a big set. Joining Mr. Jones is Brent Nicholas as Igor, the doctors assistant; Elizabeth Marcantonio as Inga and Debi Guthery as Frau Blucher. Mr. Little, who plays Dr. Frankenstein, also acted in the Naples Players production of The Producers, also a Mel Brooks musical. Im playing the Gene Wilder part again, he says, explaining that he was the accountant in The Producers in 2013. The role of the mad doctor is more of a challenge, because its so different from who he is personally. Mr. Jones was also in The Producers, he points out, though his role was very different too: he dressed in drag and also portrayed Hitler in the Springtime for Hitler musical-within-a-musical. Their biggest challenge, scene-wise, in Young Frankenstein is the surgery scene, Mr. Little says. It needs to be big and crazy, he explains, and Randys not doing much in that scene; hes lying on the surgery table. He comes to life in that number. Its called Life, Life. Its a challenging part for him. Most of what he does until the end of the show is roar and growl. His character is this intimidating force, for the most part. Hes a growling, scary monster. Hes my baby, in a sense. I want to bring him to life. The villagers are scared of him. He goes quite crazy on a number of occasions and runs away. He also runs away with my fianc, Elizabeth, whos played by Mary Anne McKerrow. Mr. Little loves the scene where he presents the monster to the village. Its a fun number, he says. Dr. Frankenstein is presenting this cultured and supposedly sophisticated monster. The two, wearing tuxes and top hats, dance to Puttin on the Ritz. I do all the tap steps, Mr. Little says, and the monster just does the basics. Its pretty funny. Tickets are selling briskly for the musical. A lot of people are thrilled when we say were going to do Young Frankenstein, says Mr. Little. Some say its their favorite movie of all time. Mel Brooks was a very popular film and now movie producer. Its good, its fun, says director Ms. Fornara. If you love the movie, youre going to love the musical. It enhances it. Mel Brooks did a great job of taking the movie and adding just enough of it, while still making it its own Broadway show. Its not the movie on stage. As for the comedy, its classic Mel Brooks humor, with funny names and funny walks and a hunchback whose hump switches from side to side. It also contains off-color jokes and sexual jokes, including a song called Roll in the Hay. Its silliness, its a great story, says Ms. Fornara. Its written so well. Mel Brooks is such a genius, a comedic genius. Hes fun. Hes not too serious. Just come and relax and laugh and lay back; its nothing you have to think about too hard.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 2, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 efforts to assist local victims of rape and sexual violence. First performed in 1996 at New York Citys Off Broadway Westside Theatre, The Vagina Monologues was hailed by The New York Times as probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade. Through a series of monologues, the playwright explores different aspects of the female experience love, sex, violence, birth, etc. by showcasing the vagina as a tool for female empowerment. Audiences for almost 20 years have laughed, cried and laugh-cried their way through performances. The show inspired the global V-Day movement, when organizations stage benefit performances like Project HELPs upcoming local production. It used to be that people didnt like to talk about sexual or domestic violence. This gives the opportunity for people to see that its important subject matter that needs to be spoken about. Its brought a lot of awareness to our community, said Eileen Wesley, Project HELPs sexual assault program director. Its poignant. Its empowering. Youll cry. Youll laugh until you cry. Its very powerful. Jessica Walck, director of the local production, says the script changes each year depending on which rights are released and in order to ensure that the play remains relevant through time. Last year, we did one with transgendered kids. As issues come up, they will update the monologues, she says. Ms. Walck is also taking her own measures to make sure the show gets freshened each year. We dont want the audience to see the same show over and over, she says We are actually reimagining a couple of monologues. Two new pre-show plays have been added to the lineup that have been written by local performers: Much Ado About Country Matters, a Shakespearean mash-up by Shakespeare in Paradises John McKerrow, and The Vagina MAN-alogue, created by writer and actor Randall Kenneth Jones. McKerrows piece, which he will perform with his wife Mary Anne, combines the vagina references in Much Ado about Nothing and Hamlet into a performed poem. Shakespeare didnt use that word it wasnt used at all the way it is today, Mr. McKerrow says. He did refer to a womans sexual parts in all his plays in fact, more often than male sexual parts. He had many different words for it, and I wrote a short Shakespearean verse. The recurring theme in each of these productions is how hesitant everyone is to call female genitalia by name and the many euphemisms people use to refer to vaginas. While Mr. McKerrow focuses on euphemisms in the Bards works that might slide past modern audiences, Mr. Jones has written a piece about his attempt to explain sex to his pre-teen daughter. The inspiration came from being a single dad parenting a teenaged daughter and the funny things that happen to you when moms not around, he says. The Vagina MANologue is based on one situation that arose when her mother was temporarily unavailable, he continues, and my daughter found that day to insist that I explain sex to her. I certainly didnt have Internet resources available, and I had to rely on my limited artistic abilities to depict male and female anatomy. His play is anecdotes about raising a daughter, he says, adding, I freely throw myself under the bus. Project HELPs first production of The Vagina Monologues was five years ago and was initially an awareness event, though its grown into one of the organizations most important fundraisers as well. The play has been a boon to the organization by creating tangible rewards like increased volunteer interest, increased community awareness about the organizations mission and money. Weve had more of a response from people wanting to volunteer, weve acquired board members and people who want to be on our hotlines, Ms. Wesley says. (People) are truly inspired by the play to want to do something. Its an amazing turnaround for us. Project HELP presents its annual performance of The Vagina Monologues from 6-8:30 p.m. Sunday, March 6, at Sugden Community Theater. The evening starts with a cocktail reception that includes a silent auction, Fund-aNeed opportunities and bucket raffles before the performances of Much Ado about Country Matters and The Vagina MAN-alogue that precede the main production.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 2, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Whether you need a car, truck or van, Enterprise is the perfect choice. 1 800 rent-a-car enterprise.com W h Pick-up subject to geographic and other restrictions. 2015 Enterprise Rent-A-Car G00131 8/15 ARTS COMMENTARY Sisters are doin it for themselves at Broadway PalmThe fish-out-of-water scenario, one in which a person is thrown into an alien environment, is a common one in theater: Another common theme: A stranger comes to town and shakes things up. Sister Act combines the two, marinating them in broad comedy and disco music. The musical is based on the popular 1992 movie of the same name. At the Broadway Palm Theatre, Housso Semon plays Deloris (the Whoopi Goldberg role in the movie). More Donna Summer than Whoopi, Ms. Semon possesses a great singing voice as well a keen comedic delivery, which makes for a strong lead.Deloris is a disco singer who wants to make it big, but she has made some bad choices. One big one is becoming the mistress of Curtis (Keith McCoy), an abusive club owner whos married and involved in some shady business deals. When Deloris witnesses him killing a man, she runs to the police. As their star witness against Curtis, she then has to go into hiding until the trial. Eddie (Rendell DeBose), a police officer (and a former high school friend who had a crush on her), hides her in the one place no one would think to look: a convent. And so the fish-out-of-water also becomes the stranger who comes to town and changes everything, turning convent life upside down. In fact this is almost an urban, updated retelling of The Sound of Music if Maria had stayed at the convent. Theres even a scene where the other nuns gather around Deloris bed in their pajamas and sing a song together because theyre scared. Sister Act is a fun piece of fluff. Despite its ultimate lesson about the importance of sisterhood and friendship, this is not a deep show. Director/choreographer Amy Marie McCleary gives us a cartoon-like musical with characters straight out of the 0s. The humor is broad, but the show is entertaining; the talented cast manages to make it work, giving personality and life to quickly sketched characters. When we first meet Deloris, shes in knee-high purple boots, a bustier and what appear to be purple velvet hot pants, paired with bright orange leopard-spot print fabric. (Costume designer John P. White provides lots of bell bottoms, platform shoes and exaggerated Afros.) Ms. Semon has a powerful voice, but if you go expecting to hear the Christian versions of the s songs that made the movie soundtrack so catchy (I Will Follow Him, My Guy/My God and Shout), you will be disappointed. It was probably prohibitive to get the rights to those songs for a stage show, so in their place are original songs by Alan Menken (music) and Glenn Slater (lyrics), the duo who wrote the score for The Little Mermaid. Deloris performs a miracle: She gets the choir of out-of-tune nuns to not only sing together in harmony, but to actually clap on the beat. The songs are zippy, and some of the lyrics are very clever. For example, Curtis and his henchmen sing When I Find My Baby, which seems like a love song but is actually a description of how hell kill her once he gets his hands on her. And instead of Saturday Night Fever, theres Sunday Morning Fever, performed by the nuns and ensemble. Lady in a Long Black Dress seems to be in homage to Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress and Float On by the Floaters. (Aquarius, and my name is Ralph/ Now I like a woman who likes her freedom/And I like a woman who can hold her own) In this song, the henchmen also mention their name and astrological sign, and speculate on how theyll sweet talk the nuns in order to gain entrance into the cloistered convent. Although the three actors are too stereotypic for my taste, the song itself is funny because a) theyre singing about nuns and b) this trio of losers are selfdeluded men who they think they can get any woman, even those married to God. Mr. McCoy, as Curtis, their boss, has a deep, rich voice and plays menacing very well, while Mr. DeBose, as Eddie, who has a crush on Deloris, is bubbly. Jama Bowen, as the Mother Superior, holds her own against Deloris both vocally and with her stage presence not an easy thing to do. Ms. McCleary was smart to cast these strong actresses in the two lead roles. The nuns, unfortunately, tend to blend together, as theyre all wearing habits and veils and wimples. Rachel Haber plays Sister Mary Robert, a young, innocent novitiate whos not sure if she wants to join the convent, never having really tasted the world. The vivacious Sister Mary Patrick (Shannon Connolly) and the wry Sister Mary Lazarus (Christina Tompkins) stand out and made me laugh the most. The nuns habits grow more and more Vegas-y as the musical progresses, full of flash and glitter. But their numbers become more visual spectacle than rousing musical songs that captivate. Still, for what it is, this is a fun show, sure to please families. And note that the inner theater offers special entre selections, cooked to order and served, on Friday and Saturday nights. On opening night, the selections were prime rib, shrimp scampi and pork ribeye. Patrons can select one of those entrees rather than the buffet selections.Its not you, its themYou can cancel that appointment with the audiologist if you recently saw Matilda at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers. Its not you. The sound really was that bad, making much of the Tony-nominated musical indecipherable. I attended opening night and have to say it was one of the most frustrating and infuriating experiences Ive ever had in a theater. I couldnt understand much of what was being said or sung. Every so often, a word or a line would come through, but that was the exception rather than the rule. The children were especially difficult to understand. The adult leads were slightly better, especially David Abeles as the evil Miss Trunchbill and Jennifer Blood as Matildas teacher, Miss Honey, who managed to make themselves heard. I was seated on the main floor; 10 people from my row and the row in front of me never returned after intermission. People sitting just a few rows from the stage also complained of not being able to hear the actors. A complaint to the people working the soundboard at intermission did not improve matters. When Matildas father came out after intermission and began apologizing to the audience, I thought: Oh great! Theyre acknowledging they have a sound problem and have fixed it. But no, he was staying in character and apologizing for his daughters bookishness. I think. It was a torturous, frustrating night. I suspect the lyrics were clever, but I really couldnt tell. And heres the maddening thing: I went online and discovered similar problems have plagued this tour of Matilda in cities around the country. When Matilda played the Kennedy Center Opera House in D.C., the venue actually handed out lyric sheets, because no one could understand the words. I simply dont understand how, knowing these problems exist, the touring company can allow them to continue in city after city. If Harry Connick Jr., can make his sound crystal clear every piano note, every drumbeat in a cavernous hockey rink, why cant Matilda get it together? I did enjoy the productions choreography by Peter Darling. The classroom scenes, especially, reminded me of a junior version of Spring Awakening. Calls to the Mann Hall for comment were not returned. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Sister Act>> When: Through April 2 >> Where: The Broadway Palm Theatre, Fort Myers >> Cost: $26-$59 >> Info: 278-4422 or BroadwayPalm.com COURTESY PHOTOSister Act at the Broadway Palm Theatre.

Support for your efforts comes slowly, but it does come. Enjoy an artsfilled weekend. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel more encouraged about changes in your personal and/or professional life. However, it might be best not to rush things but rather work with them as they evolve. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bovines business sense is especially keen this week. But remember that its always best to investigate before investing. Make sure there are no hidden factors that can rise up later on. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Working on a family project could create tension between and among those concerned. Your good sense and your patience can help reduce bad attitudes and raise positive feelings. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You should be seeing more progress in the development of your plans and more supporters joining in. News from the past could help change someones long-held position. LEO (July 23 to August 22) With personal aspects strong this week, Leos and Leonas might want to spend more time with family and others who are especially close to them. Also expect news of a possible career change. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Taking a strong stand can be helpful this week. But be careful you dont cross the line into obstinacy. Best to take a position on facts as they are, not as you want them to be. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You have a strong sense of the needs of others. This week, turn some of that sensitivity into an honest self-appraisal, and let it find places where you can help yourself. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Creating an emotional comfort zone to handle a personal problem helps at first. But by midweek, youll realize you need to deal with it directly or it could linger for too long. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Turning the page on a mistake to start fresh might not be the thing to do. Better to go over each step that led up to the decision you made and see which one misled you. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Goats enjoy a varied diet, but eating crow isnt on the menu at least not this week. An embarrassing situation might have gone wrong before you got into it. Check it out. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Your sense of honesty might impel you to speak up about a situation you disapprove of. Thats fine. But do so without sounding accusatory. You might not know all the facts behind it. BORN THIS WEEK: Your honesty about people and issues is expressed in a positive, not painful, way. PUZZLES

Not many declarers would have found the way to bring home the slam. The principle involved is known as a gambit a term borrowed from chess where a player deliberately sacrifices a piece in the expectation of later capturing one or more of his opponents pieces in return. West led the king of diamonds. Klausner saw that it was impractical to play the hand on a crossruff because it would be difficult to ruff back and forth without eventually running into an overruff. So he decided to bank his hopes on the establishment of dummys clubs, even though there was an apparent shortage of entries to dummy to accomplish his purpose. He won the ace of diamonds, led a club to the ace and ruffed a club, taking care to trump with the queen rather than a low trump. This was the first of two fine plays he made. Next, Klausner played the ace of spades, both opponents following suit. Then he played the two of spades, deliberately conceding a trump to the jack, even though this would have cost him a trick if the spades had been divided 2-2. It was the second excellent play he made, and it was this vital move that assured fulfillment of the contract. West won with the jack, but there was no way he could stop the slam. He did as well as he could by returning a diamond, forcing dummy to ruff, but Klausner then ruffed a club with the king felling Easts king and led the six of spades to the 10 to score the rest of the tricks. If Klausner had earlier neglected to ruff the two of clubs with a high trump, or had failed to lead a low spade after cashing the ace, he would have gone down.

Sometimes it is just a horn or a tusk that is wanted, but to get it, the animal must be killed. A look at some of the antiques that now cant be sold legally illustrates the problem. While few would object to the laws that cover living animals, there is controversy about objecting to the sale of ivory, horn or feathers taken from animals more than 50 years ago when there was no scarcity of the animals. Whale oil was a useful source of light, and whale meat was a popular food. Baby seals and tigers had fur that made attractive, warm coats. An elephant tusk or rhinoceros horn was used to make carved cups and decorative pieces. And eagle feathers were needed by Indians for religious ceremonies. Because some states have passed laws saying no ivory of any age can be legally sold, it has become a confusing market for collectors. Be sure to check the laws the day before you try to sell any parts of an endangered species. In 2014, Garths Auctions in Delaware, Ohio, sold a wine caddy made in the early 20th century from the hoof of a rhinoceros. It brought $1,800. Today it probably would be impossible to sell in many states. Q: Were cleaning out my fathers house and found a Windsor rocking chair with the label Crocker Chair Company, Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Were wondering if its an antique. What is it worth? A: Silas Crocker was one of the owners of the first furniture factory in Sheboygan. He and a partner established a factory in a converted hotel in 1865. The factory burned down in 1875. Crocker bought a carriage company in 1880 and made chairs, stools, tables, china cabinets and other furniture. In 1924 the company was reorganized. It sold furniture for hotels, offices and schools. Crocker Chair Company was closed by 1932. Your Crocker rocker is worth $100 to $200. Q: I received a set of Russel Wright dishes when I got married in 1958. All that remains is an oval vegetable dish. Its marked on the back Russel Wright by Knowles, Snowflower, Made in U.S.A. Would this have any value? A: Russel Wright (1904-1976) designed domestic and industrial wares, including dinnerware, glassware, furniture, aluminum, radios, interiors and more. He designed modern dinnerware for several companies, including Knowles. Snowflower is part of Knowles Esquire line, made between 1956 and 1962. Some say this design of modernistic gray twigs and white dots on a pink background was Wrights favorite line, although it wasnt one of the most popular lines at the time. Russel Wright dinnerware is collectible today.

Q: How much are eight bags of Old Advertiser Smoking Tobacco with the rolling papers worth? The box they came in isnt in good shape. A: Old Advertiser Smoking Tobacco was made by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Richard Joshua Reynolds founded a chewing tobacco company in 1875. R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. was incorporated in 1890. Our Advertiser Smoking Tobacco was introduced before 1918. Reynolds sold the brand to Republic Tobacco Inc. in 1987. The rolling papers are used to roll your own cigarettes. Value: $300. Q: My mother has a collection of about 8,000 pieces of Blue Willow. It includes Japanese, English and Buffalo Pottery dishes. She had about 32 complete place settings and tons of accessory pieces. She also has Gaudy Willow bowl and thunder mug set with soap dish and toothbrush holder. Can you help with pricing and selling this collection? A: Willow pattern has been made in England since 1780 and was made famous by Thomas Minton. The pattern has been copied by factories in many countries, including Germany, Japan and the United States and it still is being made. You need to have an expert look at the collection to determine if its the inexpensive 20th century Blue Willow or the great early Blue Willow. It should be sold by someone who specializes in Blue Willow. The International Willow Collectors (willowcollectors.org) hold an annual convention. A list of clubs for collectors of Blue Willow pattern collectibles is listed on its site. Q: I have a creamer and sugar marked Czechoslovakia P.A.L.T. They are dainty, iridescent and have black lines running north and south. Are they worth anything? A: This mark was used by Porzellanfabrik Adolf Laufer, a porcelain factory in business in Turn-Teplitz, Bohemia (now Trnovany, Czech Republic). The factory was in business from 1919 to about 1938. Some Adolf Laufer porcelain was made for export to the United States. The value of your creamer and sugar is less than $20. Tip: Carbon steel blades used in silver table knives sometimes get rust spots. If you rub the blades with a bit of beeswax lip balm, you can clear up spots and prevent new ones. The beeswax is edible. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column. By sending a letter with a question, you give full permission for use in the column or any other Kovel forum.

SUNDAYFebruary 28th 2016 10-4 pmFREE ADMISSIONMARCO ISLANDMy grandmother Dorothy loved her set of Fiestaware. The dinnerware was introduced in 1936 in five colors red, yellow, cobalt blue, green and ivory. In 1937, Homer Laughlin, the company that made Fiesta, introduced turquoise. Thats probably when my grandmother saw the dinnerware, with its bold colors and design of concentric Art Deco circles and lines. She bought a set in turquoise, with yellow accent pieces, paying for it for 50 cents a week on credit at a store in Pahokee. The companys red color, actually orange, achieved its warm hues courtesy of the uranium in its glaze it will set off Geiger counters. The company continued making Fiestaware, adding and subtracting colors along the way until 1972, when it discontinued the line. Its great fun to seek out earlier pieces of the dinnerware, sometimes made in earthtones that reflect the 1960s and 0s and the pinks, grays and chartreuses of the 1950s and early s. By the mid-0s, folks who had come of age dining on Fiesta were nostalgic for the sturdy dishes and began collecting. The line was designed as an everyday ware, but the early to mid-20th century was a much more formal time. You can find creamers and sugars, demitasses, bouillons and myriad other berry and soup bowls. Prices in the 1970s and early s were growing. By 1985, when my grandmother gave me her set, dinner plates were fetching $20 to $30 apiece. Then Homer Laughlin reintroduced the line in 1986 at Bloomingdales, and demand for the vintage pieces fell as customers bought new pieces in their dishwasher-safe glazes. Those same vintage pieces now are worth half what they were in the heyday of collecting in the early s. I still prefer the older pieces and I use grandmother Dorothys set every day. She treasured it enough that she kept the dishes when she and my grandfather divorced. That sadness aside, it makes me smile to think of her buying it at some store in Pahokee and doling out her weekly household allowance for the dishes. After all, who can put a price on nostalgia? scott SIMMONS email@example.com COLLECTORS CORNERVintage Fiesta finds still worth celebrating Join Us for Corned Beef and Cabbage to Celebrate St. Patricks Day in the Busiest Lounge in Naples!

Amid the #Oscarssowhite controversy, fashion hysteria and shameless self-promotion that comprise the craziness of Oscar season, some intriguing races have emerged. This column focuses on the big six categories, but those in Oscar pools can expect The Big Short and Spotlight to win the writing awards, The Revenant to take cinematography, Mad Max: Fury Road to take editing, production design, costume design and makeup, and the legendary Ennio Morricone (The Man With No Name trilogy) to win his first Oscar for composing the original score for The Hateful Eight. That said, here are my predictions for the big six Oscars. Chris Rock hosts The 88th Academy Awards starting at 7 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 28, on ABC. Best ActorAfter six total nominations, I expect Leonardo DiCaprio will finally win Best Actor for his work in The Revenant and rightfully so, as he was nothing short of spectacular. His performance is the culmination of 20 years of great work and daring choices, and theres little doubt among the experts that hes the man to beat. Also nominated are Bryan Cranston for Trumbo, Matt Damon for The Martian, Michael Fassbender for Steve Jobs and Eddie Redmayne for The Danish Girl. Will win: Mr. DiCaprio. Should win: Mr. DiCaprio.Best ActressThis category is similarly predictable, as Brie Larson has won all the major awards leading up to the Oscars for her work in Room. Her performance is emotional, complicated and moving, a real gut punch of heartache and sorrow thats a legit accomplishment for any actress. Saoirse Ronan, however, gave my favorite performance of the year in Brooklyn and is rightfully nominated here, as are Jennifer Lawrence for Joy, Cate Blanchett for Carol and CharC20 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 2, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com Intriguing races promise an interesting evening at the Oscars

Will win for Best Actress: Ms. Larson. Should win: Ms. Ronan.Best Supporting ActorMany feel Sylvester Stallone will take the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for Creed, and it certainly was a wonderful performance. Watching it felt like catching up with your uncle whom you havent seen in years and soaking up his sage advice. Its also a career highlight for Mr. Stallone, coming in a return to the role that made him famous (Rocky Balboa). Hollywood couldnt write a better story. He faces tough competition, though, in Mark Ruffalo as the heart and soul of Spotlight, Mark Rylance for Bridge of Spies, Christian Bale in The Big Short and Tom Hardy in The Revenant. Will win: Mr. Stallone. Should win: Mr. Ruffalo.Best Supporting ActressThis category is similarly murky. Early awards have split between nominees Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs) and Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl), which makes this a tough one to call. Add in Rooney Maras phenomenal turn opposite Cate Blanchett in Carol, Rachel McAdams great work in Spotlight and Jennifer Jason Leigh in The Hateful Eight, and you have an outstanding and competitive category. In the end, though, the emotional power of Ms. Vikander as a woman whose husband decides he wants to be a woman should be enough to prevail. Will win: Ms. Vikander. Should win: Ms. Mara.Best DirectorIf Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, who won last year for Birdman, wins best director for The Revenant, he will become the third director in history to win in consecutive years (John Ford, 194041, Joseph Mankiewicz, 1949-50). Given the ambition and scope of The Revenant, and the fact that Mr. Inarritu won the Directors Guild Award, which is a precursor to winning the Oscar, he is the strong favorite here. However, George Miller did great work in Mad Max: Fury Road, Adam McKay brought delightful humor and clarity to complicated issues in The Big Short, Tom McCarthy made investigative journalism compelling in Spotlight, and Lenny Abrahamson told a simple story extraordinarily well in Room. Will win: Mr. Inarritu. Should win: Mr. Inarritu.Best PictureOnly four times in Oscar history has a Best Picture winner come from a film that did not receive a Best Director nomination: 1927, 1932, 1989 and 2012. This will not be one of those years, as neither The Martian, Bridge of Spies nor Brooklyn (all of which dont have directing nominations) has the widespread industry support needed to win. Similarly, Room is a nice movie, but it will receive its big award when Ms. Larson wins Best Actress. And a full-fledged action flick has never won best picture, so Mad Max: Fury Road will have to rely on technical awards to boost its tally. Which leaves us with three. Ordinarily we rely on the guild awards to reveal the frontrunner because theyre an indication of what industry professionals think is the years best, but this year thats little help: The Big Short won the Producers Guild, Spotlight won the Screen Actors Guild, and The Revenant won the Directors Guild. With the three guilds splitting, it becomes anyones guess (though its worth noting that The Revenant has become the trendy pick with the most positive buzz). However, this one statistic is inescapable: The Producers Guild has matched the Oscar winner the last eight consecutive years, and its preferential ballot voting system is the only one of the guilds that matches how the Oscars choose Best Picture. Will win: The Big Short. Should win: The Martian, which was my No. 1 movie of 2015.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 2, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C31 CUISINE NEWSOutstanding in the Field: Reconnecting people with life-giving landThe distinct scent of earth just days after a rain mingled with the light aroma of eucalyptus as 149 people and I followed Eva Worden around her Punta Gorda farm, hanging on every word as she described the process of growing organic produce and the sacrifice and sheer determination that have defined her and husband Chris life since 2003. The couples oldest son, now 13, was just a few months old when they started Worden Farm. All you see was developed by us, she said, gesturing to perfectly aligned, raised rows of lettuces, broccoli, green beans and other vegetables seemingly planted according to the color spectrum light to darker shades of green giving way to deep purples all contrasted against the white of protective plastic used as a substitute for mulch. Our other son is 9. I think its an amazing experience to grow up on a farm. Were proud and happy to share our farm with you and hope to spread the word about the life-changing experience it is to connect with your food. The tour was part of the ultimate farm-to-table dinner staged by Outstanding in the Field, a Californiabased nonprofit that crisscrosses the country and ventures beyond visiting select farms with its roving community table. The goal of the organization is to reconnect people with the land and the source of their food while honoring local farms and chef artisans. The sold-out Jan. 31 event was the third time the Wordens have hosted the meal in a field, and it attracted many diners from South Florida and areas more than 100 miles away. Jeff Mitchell from The Local in Naples created the menu around the farms available produce and featured pork from Palmetto Creek Farms in Avon Park, additional produce from Inyoni Farms in Naples, bleu cheese from Sunshine Dairy and other Florida farms and ranches. One couple flew in from Chicago just to attend the event, and returned north the following day. Debbie Staples, a self-described foodie from Fort Lauderdale, remembered seeing a photo of a table sitting in the middle of a farm field and kept the scene in her mind. She and a friend made the single-day, round-trip journey to Punta Gorda. I cant wait to see the table and taste fresh food by a gourmet chef, she said. With the whole debate going on about organic and genetically modified food and the food industry in general, I think its going to be interesting. Mark and Elenore Sulloway of Bradenton frequent farmers markets. We thought it would be interesting to see where our food comes from, said Ms. Sulloway. For Melanie Rand, a science teacher at a local charter school, the farm tour was inspirational. She and her earth science students started eight earth boxes last year, yielding eggplant. Some of these kids have never tasted a green pepper or a tomato, she said. We prepared strips of eggplant in the microwave with garlic and had marinara for dipping. They loved it. When we had a recent celebration they asked to eat green peppers. Ms. Rand and her husband received two tickets to the event as a Christmas gift from their son and daughter-in-law. A portion of the $190 per-ticket price benefits the nonprofit Florida Organic Growers and Consumers, which, among its many missions, provides fresh food and produce to food stamp recipients. The uncharacteristic January thunderstorm just days earlier forced the Wordens and Chef Mitchell to tweak the menu. The farms potatoes werent ready. But the team and partners prevailed, creating wonderful passed hors doeuvres and appetizers of pickled starfruit, Gulf shrimp, grilled veggies and pastrami. Im not ashamed to admit I probably took the last piece of thick-sliced bacon prepared from Palmetto Creek Farms pork with pepper and brown sugar. This is the best bacon Ive ever had, I heard someone down the table proclaim. The farms grilled pork loin had a nice fat cap and worked well as the main dish. I couldnt resist a second helping of the Florida berry and tangerine crumble. Although the public can purchase Worden Farms fresh produce at numerous regional farmers markets, the Wordens are discerning about their business partnerships with local restaurants. They wouldnt sell to me at first, Chef Mitchell told me, beaming with pride as guests began leaving the field at the end of the event, stopping to compliment him. Its such an honor to work with Worden Farm on this event. For me, Outstanding in the Field brought back fantasies about owning a little farm and living off the land. And while that dream resurfaced with the sensory experience of being on a farm, it also occurred to me I could run away with Outstanding in the Field, joining a dedicated staff of nomads who tour the country, arrange the meals and sleep on a bus. Thanks to the staffs frequent social media posts, the groups followers know exactly where the bus is, whos driving it and even if it gets stuck in snow. How fun. The team had hosted an event in Tampa the previous night and used a lot of produce supplied by Worden Farm. Theyve been to 12 countries, and the table has been set up in sea caves, on mountains and in valleys, and pretty much every place imaginable that can accommodate seating for many guests. Its a communal experience, much like plunking one long table in a field without place cards. Guests brought their own plates or chose from an assortment of provided dishes decorated with flowers, roosters, stars and stripes pretty much any design. It added to the eclectic tablescape and the ambience of a candlelit community meal served family-style with white linens and food and wine pairings by Chef Mitchell. The table itself stopped many participants in their tracks at first glance. They fished phones out of pockets and purses to capture the moment. Dining from dusk to dark illuminated only by candlelight in a field in the middle of nowhere was quite an experience. I sat across from Punta Gorda financial adviser Brian Presley and his wife, Mary, who own a working ranch nearby. Later, I passed Ms. Staples at the other end of the table, who was laughing as her tablemate sang Happy Birthday, then launched into an impromptu Kumbaya. Its funny, she told me. All I was thinking about was the food. I didnt even think of meeting people.

CUISINE NEWSNational Pancake Week calls for a recipe to flip for BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comHave you ever had the pleasure of mixing fermented carbs with maple syrup? Thanks to King Arthur Flour, we can provide you with an excuse to sample pure sourdough pleasure with a recipe that can be cooked up as either crispy waffles or fluffy pancakes. Bonus: Its National Pancake Week, the perfect time to take on this particular kitchen challenge. The recipe isnt exactly exotic, but it is nostalgic and a touch ambitious. Sourdough, long ago erased from modern kitchens, recalls a time when home cooks had some formidable baking skills and werent afraid to work that fermented tang into all manner of carb-fueled items. If you dont have sourdough starter ready to go and really, who does? it will take five days to a week to create your own, or you can purchase a fresh little tub from kingarthurflour.com. Wed suggest you try to brew it yourself its super fun and gratifying.Classic Sourdough Pancakes or WafflesOvernight sponge: 2 cups King Arthur Unbleached AllPurposes Flour 2 tbsp. sugar 2 cups butt ermilk 1 cup sourdough starter, unfed Batter: All of the overnight sponge 2 large eggs 1/4 cup vegetab le oil or melted butter 3/4 tsp. salt 1 tsp. baking soda Instructions: To make the overnight sponge, stir down your refrigerated starter and remove 1 cup.

Body & Soul Caf was one of the very few spots I hadnt tried yet, so I recently took myself 50 yards to the north and ordered a small Body Bowl, composed of one grain of my choosing (brown rice), three toppings (sliced veggies, kale and avocado, roasted sweet potatoes) and a dressing (curry). It was healthy, relatively inexpensive and convenient (for me). Ill definitely go back for more. One more thing: Body & Soul Caf offers meal plans for $60 per week (one healthy entre per day).

ORIGINAL DIRECTION & CHOREOGRAPHY BY SUSAN STROMAN PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Blue Water Bistro, Coconut Point, 23151 Village Shops Way, Estero; 9492583 Blue Water Bistro is one of the jewels of the Culinary Concepts crown that includes two Chops City Grill restaurants as well as Pazzo! and Yabba Island Grill in Naples. Appetizers are all over the map, ranging from homey short-rib meatballs with Sunday gravy to eight sushi creations. The crisp tempura-style green beans make a good starter, as does the tuna poke, sashimi-style fish that the server tosses at the table with soy sauce, tart yuzu juice, creamy avocado bits, shreds of juicy jumbo lump crab and mango chunks for sweetness. With myriad fish and shellfish entrees, its hard to go wrong. The blackened salmon might not technically be blackened, but it has a mouthwatering crust enhanced with a bourbon and brown sugar glaze. The crispy-crunchy crab-stuffed grouper with its shattering crust and hidden treasure of lump blue crab within held lots of flavor. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed August 2015 Lamoraga, 3936 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 331-3669 The first U.S. branch of this stylish Spanish chain features contemporary tapas in a setting to match. Pick a table or settle in at the sprawling tapas bar and watch the culinary team craft dishes such as berenjenas (three small fried eggplant with smoky, crisp skins filled with soft flesh, topped with tobiko flakes, mirin and honey), artisanal meat and cheese plates, Andalusian garlic shrimp and Moorish lamb skewers. There are large plates as well, such as baked black cod, beef short ribs and dryaged New York strip steak. For dessert, try the warm roasted fig tart with pistachio ice cream. Lamoraga does a fine job on beverages as well, with an interesting selection of wines and cocktails served by an eager-to-please staff. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2014 L'Auberge, Imperial Square, 975 Imperial Golf Course Blvd., Naples; 596-4303 Chef/co-owner Patrick Figini, formerly of Bleu Provence, has created a modest but pleasant establishment in North Naples with his wife, Margaret. Mussels are available any of 10 ways. The Provencale variety (with wine, tomatoes, garlic, olives and herbs) was delicious. The 1-pound serving was plenty for an appetizer (2 pounds are available as an entree). House-cured smoked salmon with toast points and lightly dressed greens was excellent. Red snapper in wine citrus sauce was simple and elegant, and the osso buco featured a fall-off-the-bone tender lamb shank in soulful sauce paired with mashed potatoes that tasted as if they had a touch of lavender. A classic apple tart with vanilla ice cream was a perfect end to the meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed August 2014 Ridgway Bar & Grill, Third Street South and 13th Avenue South, Naples; 262-5500 Chef/owner Tony Ridgway has been offering great food and service in stylish setting for 37 years at a variety of top-notch restaurants. Ridgway Bar & Grill combines some of the best features of all that came before (Truffles, Chefs Garden and Villa Pescatore, among them). The garden from Chefs Garden is still splendid. The wine list is exemplary. All the baked goods are made in house. A goat-cheese tart with ratatouille was superb and big enough to share. Mussels arrived in a hot cast-iron skillet and were perfectly done in a flavorful broth. Whether you want chicken potpie or pan-roasted Florida shrimp with a sweet corn grit cake, Scottish salmon filet with braised lentil and leeks, a simple steak or a vegetable plate selected from 13 options, its available. And dont skip dessert. The Truffles carrot cake is always a good bet. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2014 7th Avenue Social, 849 Seventh Ave. S., Naples; 231-4553 A lot of Naples restaurants serve great food, but few do it with the fun and funky vibe that 7th Avenue Social has achieved. The spot formerly occupied by Flava is now owned by Colin Estrem, who clearly knew what to do with it. The menu features innovative cocktails, house-made pickles, conch sliders, smoked fish mac n cheese, chicken and waffles, pineapple upside-down cake and a host of other goodies conjured up by Executive Chef David Lani, a graduate of the esteemed Culinary Institute of America. Stop in for drinks and relax in the eclectic collection of chairs clustered near the entrance, or dine at a table where a couch (with pillows) provides two of the seats. I loved the pickles, a chile verde pork taco, the mac n cheese and the somewhat sloppy but satisfying Southern fried chicken wings. We shared a nightly special of yellowtail snapper encased in salt that was served tableside with white asparagus, crisp yucca fries and a side of Bearnaise sauce. Sunday brunch and late-night menus available, too. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2015 Key to ratings Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor

Thats due, in part, to the high rents in the citys trendier neighborhoods and lush shopping centers combined with the desire by passionate chefs to use top-quality ingredients and, in some cases, to pay competent servers living wages. Wander off the stylish thoroughfares and back onto, say, U.S. 41 and its side streets and you will find some small, cozy cafes typically run by families and most often offering food at substantially lower cost. One such spot is Opa Greek Restaurant, which took over the space previously filled by Falafel Grille about 14 months ago in a small strip center at Ninth Avenue North and Fourth Street North near Maria DAnna Caf just a few blocks from Old Naples. Opa has the feel of a tavern youd find in Greece: tables close together, people speaking animatedly on all sides, a menu offering classic Greek fare and scenic posters of Greece (and, in one case, Havana) hanging on the walls. Tables are simply set, with decorative artificial flowers and paper place mats. A man emerged from the kitchen I assumed he was the chef/owner to take our drink and appetizer order so we could get it in ahead of the large and raucous party behind us. We appreciated his effort, as it resulted in our receiving our vegetarian sampler ($16.95) and dolmades ($8.95) while the group behind us peppered the sole, beleaguered server with a multitude of questions before ordering. We started off with a bottle of Tsantali Blanc DEstelle, a white Greek wine that was properly chilled and not too sweet but didnt have a great deal of flavor to distinguish itself. It was pleasant enough, however, with our sampler, which included mild versions of hummus and tabouli, a smoky baba ganoush, crisp falafel and tahini and tzatziki sauces to accompany them along with a basket of warm pita sliced into triangles. The tahini (a sesame-seed-based sauce) paired nicely with the falafel (deep-fried balls made of ground chickpeas and seasonings). The tzatziki was somewhat flat, however, tasting like plain yogurt with chunks of cucumber and lacking any discernible seasonings such as garlic, salt, mint, parsley or lemon juice. The dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) consisted of tender grape leaves wrapped around warm rice with a fresh wedge of lemon to squeeze over them. They were delicate but flavorful, even though they contained no meat (which is the other option). A Greek salad ($8.95) came next. It was large enough for three to share. Typically, these contain romaine lettuce, cucumbers, feta cheese, onions and olives. This one also had green and red peppers, tomatoes and carrots. Id have preferred more cheese and olives and fewer other ingredients as well as a more assertive dressing. This tasted like olive oil and vinegar with perhaps a hint of lemon. It could have used some oregano and more lemon juice to give it some life. Entrees were a mixed bag. The Solomon stiskara (grilled salmon) had a good smoked flavor with a ladolemono sauce (primarily olive oil, lemon and oregano). It came with a serving of unremarkable rice and a medley of broccoli, carrots, green beans and red peppers that appeared to be fresh but unseasoned. A nightly special of grilled grouper ($16.95) tasted as beige as it looked. It, too, came with veggies and rice. The best of the bunch was the beef shawarma ($16.95), thinly sliced beef served with tomatoes, onions, spices, rice and tahini sauce. The beef and vegetables were nicely seasoned and the tahini added another layer of flavor. This dish is also available as a wrap sandwich and Id recommend that version, which comes with lettuce and a pita into which to tuck it all as well. For dessert, we shared two large triangles of baklava ($7.95), which were very good. The layers of phyllo were crisp, intermingled with the requisite chopped nuts and honey. Opa could have used more help, at least on a Saturday evening when it was doing a brisk business. The lone server was hardpressed to handle all of the tables, which resulted in somewhat brusque service. In addition to scattershot service, there is one practice that clearly upset some diners, at least at two tables near us. Everyone at the eight-top behind us ordered only water to drink. When they received their bills, they found they had each been charged $1.50 for water. The couple on our other side had ordered one beer and one water. The person who ordered water was charged $1.50 as well. (I watched as she squeezed a lemon and poured artificial sweetener into said water, making an ersatz lemonade, a trick Ive seen many times when people dont want to buy a beverage. So there may be some justification for charging.) While charging for water isnt going to win you customers, failing to tell them your policy is apt to ensure they dont come back. As it turned out, wed ordered a bottle of wine along with our waters and so werent charged for our H20. Opa does some things well and could improve on others. The one thing that would help make it more satisfying for customers and more successful for the owners is better communication.

Within Mediterra, amenities that rival five-star resorts make every day an extraordinary experience.

Come evening, many gather at the expansive clubhouse, savoring epicurean fare in the Grille Room, joining friends for cocktails on alfresco terraces under the stars, or watching the game in the popular Tavern on 18.

Sienna Reserve models grand opening an overwhelming success Community surpasses two-thirds sold mark.One of the busiest communities in the Naples area is Sienna Reserve, the intimate enclave of 45 single-family homes being developed by Zuckerman Homes on Livingston Road, between Vanderbilt Beach Road and Immokalee Road. The community recently marked the completion of its three models and the public response has been extraordinary. The week prior to the models official grand opening more than 130 visitors stopped by Sienna Reserve to take an early model preview tour. During the official grand opening weekend that number more than doubled. Our sales team heard positive comments all day long as visitors returned to the sales center to complete their threemodel tour, said Andy Zuckerman, President of Zuckerman Homes. A number of visitors even walked into the sales center with checkbooks in hand and were anxious to put down a deposit immediately. Our models, as well as the community itself, were exactly what these new homeowners were searching for. As of late February, more than twothirds of the communitys 45 homes were sold. However, some of the best homesites overlooking the lake and preserve are still available. But, time is of the essence considering the high interest in the community and the rapid rate of sales. Every visitor simply loves the open, well-designed floor plans whether they are looking for a single-story or twostory home, state Zuckerman. The three models, the Hibiscus and the Magnolia Flex, which are furnished, and the Rosewood, which is unfurnished, perfectly represent the quality and attention to detail found in every home built by Zuckerman Homes. The two-story Rosewood, the largest home offered at Sienna Reserve, is an incredible five-bedroom plus study and clubroom/five-and-a-half-bath home with 4,971 square feet under air and 5,997 total square feet. The Magnolia Flex is a two-story, four-bedroom plus game room and media room/three full-bath/two halfbath home. It has 4,004 square feet under air and 4,855 total square feet. The Hibiscus is a single-story, threebedroom plus study/three-bath home with 2,566 square feet under air and 3,378 total square feet. A total of eight floor plans are available at Sienna Reserve. Prices start in the mid-$600s. For a limited opportunity, Sienna Reserve purchasers are eligible to receive complimentary temporary privileges to all Tiburon Golf Club amenities, and Sienna Reserve homeowners are eligible to become members of the exclusive Tiburon Golf Club, which is located only minutes away. We might have called the event our model grand opening, but in reality it was the communitys grand opening as well, stated Zuckerman. Our grand entrance is definitely another attention grabber. Sienna Reserves Grand Entrance includes a palmand flower-lined brickpaver drive, an impressive gatehouse and a majestic stone and marble privacy entry wall with cascading water feature and glistening fountains. Several brick-paver roundabouts with water feature centerpieces are also positioned throughout Sienna Reserve. Buyers are also thrilled to learn only 14 of the communitys 30 acres are being developed. The remaining 16 acres comprise a freshwater lake and untouched nature preserve. The fact that no two homes back up to each other, and have either a lake or preserve view, is another reason people love Sienna Reserve. According to Zuckerman, another major selling point is Sienna Reserves size. In many cases bigger is not always better. Our research indicates buyers are looking for a more intimate community to call home. A place close to the city, yet in harmony with nature. A place where neighbor knows neighbor. With only 45 homes, thats exactly what we deliver. Zuckerman Homes also welcomes future residents to customize their home something usually only offered in communities priced much higher. Everyones lifestyle is different. They have different needs, said Zuckerman. As a family-run building company no one knows that better than we do. Well do everything we can to customize a home to our buyers specifications. Sienna Reserves location is another reason the community is more than two-thirds sold. It is close to downtown Naples and its world-renowned shopping districts of Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South, said Zuckerman. Its also within minutes of Mercato, one of the most popular upscale shopping, dining and entertainment areas in town. In addition, Sienna Reserve is close to the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, the Naples Pier, fine restaurants, Germain Arena, the site for many sporting and entertainment events, and the Southwest Florida International Airport. Its also an enjoyable stroll to North Collier Regional Park, one of the countys premier parks. It features walking trails and boardwalks, fishing lakes, a fitness center complex, a world-class childrens museum and soccer and softball fields. Sienna Reserve will continue its models grand opening for several continuous weeks. Every one at Sienna Reserve is truly proud of this exceptional community, said Zuckerman. We look forward to welcoming more visitors to our doors. Were confident theyll find the perfect home to fit their lifestyle. The sales center and models are open Monday Saturday, 10 am to 5:30 pm, and Sunday, 11 am to 5:30 pm. For more information regarding Sienna Reserve, call (239) 643-4333 or visit SiennaReserve.com.

Minto announces three new large-scale communities solidifying long-term commitment to Florida while growing existing communitiesMinto Communities announces plans for three new communities in Florida, expanding the company into new markets, and totaling 17,900 lots and 4.2 million square feet of commercial space. The new communities are located in Naples, Daytona Beach and Palm Beach. Minto has a long history in Florida. Over the past 35 years, Minto has built more than 25,000 new homes in 44 communities throughout the state. Minto is committed to Florida which is evidenced by our long positions, notes Minto Senior Vice President William Bullock. Minto Communities and Collier Enterprises recently announced plans for the new Naples area community in eastern Collier County referred to as Rural Lands West that includes 10,000 lots and two million square feet of commercial space. Mintos first phase of this community will be an agerestricted 55-and-better neighborhood with 4,000 homes, a golf course, parks and a town center with commercial, retail, entertainment and dining. The golf cart friendly community will have miles of trailways and kayakways. Planning is underway for Mintos age-restricted 55-and-better community in Daytona Beach, located just west of I-95 off LPGA Boulevard. This new resort-style community will offer 3,400 residences and 215,000 square feet of neighborhood commercial space, along with an array of world-class amenities. The golf cart-friendly community will include a private Beach Club on the Atlantic Ocean for homeowners and guests. With a prime location in Daytona, the community is in close proximity to world-famous beaches, championship golf at LPGA International, Daytona International Speedway, the new Daytona One entertainment, dining and shopping destination, and new Tanger Outlets with more than 80 retailers. Westlake, Mintos new community located in western Palm Beach County, is approved for 4,500 homes and two million square feet of commercial space. This innovative 3,800-acre community will feature a town center with shops, restaurants, entertainment, professional offices and recreational amenities. The community includes more than 2,000 acres of lakes, trails and open spaces. Plans call for employment centers, college campus and medical facilities. Minto also recently completed its third phase of The Isles of Collier Preserve in Naples. The Isles is off to a great start. With more than 1,300 lots still remaining to be developed we look forward to a great future, adds Bullock. The Isles of Collier Preserve is located just four miles east of downtown Naples. Based on customer feedback reflecting a desire for larger homes, Minto recently announced Stock Signature Homes as a builder at The Isles of Collier Preserve. Stock will offer home plans on 90-foot wide lots that are in keeping with the contemporary coastal style of the existing community. We selected Stock to build the larger luxury homes because the company shares Mintos commitment to integrity, quality and excellent customer service, notes Bullock. Another of Mintos newest communities is LakePark at Tradition in Port St. Lucie. After selling out in the TownPark neighborhood at Tradition, Minto developed LakePark based on customer feedback for an age-restricted 55-and-better Minto community in Tradition. Minto recently held a grand opening for six new furnished models and a new sales office. The LakePark community will feature 644 singlefamily homes and paired villas. Founded in 1955, Minto is a familyowned business that has grown over the last 60 years into one of North Americas leading builders, with more than 80,000 homes built.
