A2 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 7-13, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYGOP contest a new-fashioned bodice ripperThe women who reacted indignantly to the inference from Hillarys camp that women should vote for women (and Hillary) out of loyalty to their gender might want to re-think their response. A brouhaha erupted over the suggestion. Susan Faludi described it in The New York Times as a generational grudge match between the elder stateswomen of the feminist movement and their idealistic, millennial daughters. Being of their own mind about the issue, the younger generation scoffs at the idea that women should stick together for the sake of their gender and elect the countrys first female president. If a candidate man or woman believes and accepts women are entitled to the same political, social and economic rights as men, that is good enough for them. Meanwhile, Donald Trump, the most likely GOP nominee for president, continues to alienate women with his sexist remarks, giving female skeptics an opportunity to reconsider their rebellion against feminist orthodoxy. Cementing solidarity with women as women might not be such a bad idea after all, and it may be ultimately necessary if women are ever to achieve equal rights. That is because Donald Trump and his adversary, Ted Cruz, suffer no such pang of conscience in rallying disaffected brothers to their cause. Their testosterone-driven rhetoric is designed to inspire and consolidate the angry mens vote. Trump and Cruz are winning masculine hearts and minds as the alpha dogs of the conservative movement, and their campaigns are in the grand old tradition of playing identity politics to the hilt. To wit, men are men, evangelicals are evangelicals, racists are racists, and women are second-class citizens. At such a time, even Trump himself might admit women should feel free to think with their vaginas. After all, because women have them, they suffer inequitable treatment, and since men do not, they make all the rules. Trump has famously referenced this truism when he spoke at length about the importance of big hands in American politics. He made plain what the majority of women already observe and concede: Men rule the world and they plan it that way. As the trash talk escalates between Trump and Cruz, every salvo spatters decay on those entertained by the spectacle. Voters who reward this abysmal behavior with their political allegiance share guilt by association. They sustain with their support the patrimony over women their role models emulate, granting women the prestige and care one more typically reserves for a well-trained bird dog. The discriminatory attitudes and behaviors toward women are an artifact of the past, when women were seen (preferably clothed) and heard, only as wives and mothers. The modern version of this gender stereotype is updated so a man can claim a competitive edge over his rival because he has acquired a trophy wife, i.e., his woman as a sex object, intellectual property, financial asset, or supplicant ministering to his every need. It has come down to this: the GOP contest is a new-fashioned bodice ripper, starring two men in combat over their wives virtues or lack thereof, a broader metaphor for their opinion of the weaker sex. Cruzs wife, Heidi, is cast in the role of the good wife, snugged up in a whale bone corset, weeping into her hankie, the victim of a public insult by her husbands rival. The valiant Mr. Cruz angrily confronts the cad who gave his sainted wife offense. He delivers with a glove a brutal slap to the face of his adversary, calling him a sniveling coward, challenging him to a duel at high noon on the lawn of Mar-a-Lago. OK, I made up that last part. But we practically deserve to have such a showdown, given what we have had to endure to get this far and with months to go. When Trump suggests women who have abortions should be punished and Cruz opines all issues are womens issues, they demonstrate how clueless they are of the litany of matters affecting only women or women disproportionately. Women witnessing this patronizing and sexist charade share in common their condemnation of it by an overwhelming majority within the general electorate. According to a recent NBC poll, almost half of Republican women voting in the primaries agree at least when it comes to Trumps misogyny. But this is commonality absent the unity among women as a movement to ensure misogyny does not become further institutionalized in state and national policy. Trump and Cruz share responsibility for the denigration of women and womens equality on the national stage. But they represent only the tip of the ideological iceberg in fashion among conservative lawmakers. They are perpetuating an anti-feminist, anti-woman agenda, laying waste to social programs important to womens economic well-being, health, welfare, educational opportunity not just programs but laws that guarantee women equal treatment under the law. This is what manhandling of women looks like when it is systemic and government-sanctioned by the male majorities running the show. It wont stop until women, as one, challenge the abuse.

It surely wont be his last.The Wall Street Journal reported that Ted Cruz may come out of Louisiana with as many as 10 more delegates than Trump, even though the mogul narr owly beat Cruz in the popular vote there. In a tweet, Trump pronounced it unfair, and worthy of litigation. The Louisiana delegate picture isnt evidence of anything untoward. Trump and Cruz both won 18 delegates on election night. Marco Rubio, since dropped out, won five, and another five are uncommitted. The Cruz campaign has done the nitty-gritty work to see that those delegates are likely Cruz supporters. The only scandal here is that the Cruz campaign, built on grass-roots organizing muscle, knows the process and is working hard for every advantage. Trumps plaint is a little like showing up at a cricket match and crying foul because the opposing team knows the rules and all you know is that you swing a bat. The Louisiana flap is a window into the intricate, state-by-state process of picking delegates to a convention in Cleveland where the allegiance of every last delegate might matter. If there is an open convention, Trump will argue that the voters should rule, not delegates no one has heard of, selected at obscure precinct, county, district and state meetings. He will, in short, declare the entire exercise of a contested convention illegitimate. Is it? We are used to the voters directly deciding, and should Trump perform strongly enough to win a majority of delegates, 1,237, they, in effect, will. But if he falls short, the delegates enter the picture. If Trump has only won a plurality of delegates, a badly divided party would be nominating a candidate who couldnt reach a majority and, so far, has shown no general-election appeal. In this circumstance, delegates would be justified in looking to someone else better suited to win an election and protect the partys interests. Its not unheard of for top vote-getters in America to fall short of the top prize. Otherwise, there would have been a Gore administration. Al Gore won the popular vote in 2000, but still fell short of George W. Bush, who won the Electoral College. If you count Michigan, where Barack Obamas name didnt appear on the ballot, Hillary Clinton very narrowly won the most votes in the 2008 primaries. That was good enough for an appointment as secretary of state under President Obama, who understood the delegateallocation rules much better. Trump has thrived so far without an extensive, traditional political operation. But politics isnt only about TV interviews and big rallies. There is a reason that the system also rewards candidates who can motivate and muster people to do the grass-roots activism involved in winning small victories at local meetings. This is literally getting people involved in the process, and it could take on an outsized significance in deciding the immediate future of the Republican Party. Trump would be well served to complain less about the rules, and learn more. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINIONTen American DaysOnce again, weve arrived at a somber and revealing moment in the American calendar: the straits of April. They begin on April 9 and run for 10 days, through April 19, traditionally known as Patriots Day. For one thing, the April straits come festooned with anniversaries. For another, at this distance the echoes of history seem to resonate from a single source, a once-upona-time that suggests how weakly a mere calendar reflects American progress. These echoes amount to a sum, the sum of our deeds. We are, in large part, what we have done. And we are also what we will do. Those realities are not constrained by a calendar. Let me explain what I mean with a question: Does it matter that Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered to Union General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox on April 9, 1865, after his failed war to preserve slavery in the name of states rights or that American soldiers liberated Buchenwald, one of the grotesque camps of death for Jews maintained by the German army and a broad bouquet of poisonous civilians, on April 10, 1945; or the third Civil Rights Act was signed into law by LBJ to prohibit discrimination in housing, one week after Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, on April 11, 1968; or that the Civil War started on April 12, 1861, the same date President Franklin D. Roosevelt died, in 1945; or that Abraham Lincoln was shot on April 14 and died the next morning, on April 15, 1865; or that the shot heard round the world beginning the American Revolution that brought us here was fired near the Lexington Bridge at British troops on April 19, 1775? The answer is no, of course not, it doesnt matter. The years seem to contract on themselves and they matter a lot less than the deeds. If you were assigned to create a soundtrack for those momentous April events, youd have to tune it up with a lot of gunfire (timpani drums, perhaps, with the staccato snap-and-rattle of snares). And you could finish it with a piano scale played with a staggering rhythm that comes to a dead halt in mid-octave. Where are we going and how will this end this effort to define ourselves as Americans the music should ask us? And whether we like it or not, we have to face the music, always. That requires thinking about guns and patriots, which have been so much a part of the April straits, both for good and ill. After all, the history of the country can be said to start with that single musket shot on April 19, fired by somebody weve come to think of as a patriot, a man intent on forming a new government of the people, by the people, and for the people. But some of the people seem to have concluded that patriotism in America is only about guns. And furthermore, that if you suggest guns should be limited you know, no cruise missiles, no .50 caliber machine guns, no 155 howitzers then you define yourself as an American pinko, not an American patriot. Take Wayne LaPierre and co., at the National Rifle Association, headquartered in Fairfax, Virginia, right next to Centreville, home of Seung-Hui Cho, the murderer who used pistols with high-capacity magazines to shoot dead 32 people and wound 17 others on April 16, 2007, at Virginia Tech. Mr. LaPierre, a vice president of the NRA, said that the only thing that will stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, not long after the Newtown, Connecticut, massacre of 26 people, including 20 children in December 2012. That was a precursor, apparently, to the callous letter from the NRA delivered to the United States Senate (and me) on April 10. It stated firmly that the NRA was against any newly required registering of firearms purchased at gun shows or exchanged between private citizens, and opposed to any limitations on the size of currently available assault weapons or high-capacity magazines. At Newtown, by the way, there were only two survivors. A medic who arrived shortly after the gunfire stopped noted later that there was nothing to do nobody to save, nobody even to transport to any hospitals. It was a work-free zone. And why? Because every body was riddled with bullets and destroyed completely. Between three and nine rounds hit each little person or adult. The weapons were so devastating that surviving was not an option for anybody in their way. What that tells me is that Wayne and co. are really businessmen, not riflemen. And theyre in the business not of defending American virtues like constitutional amendments, but of fattening the bank accounts of corporate commanders who build and sell assault weapons. Almost no one is against the Second Amendment. No one in public life has asked that it be abolished or will. No one is interested in taking away our guns. But many are now trying to regulate those guns in order to save lives just as people have regulated automobiles by requiring seatbelts, or outlawing the old practice of drinking and driving, or restricting the speed we travel on a highway. No one, however, is suggesting that they take our cars away, any more than our weapons. So now, sliding through the April straits, the music we hear our American music raises this question, once again: Who are we? We have come down to the crossroads between what we have done and what we are going to do. Our choice of direction will now answer that question. At the NRA, they call themselves law abiding, they call themselves constitutionalists, they call themselves the good guys. And mostly they call themselves patriots. A lot of people who are a lot smarter than I am have talked about what it means to be a patriot, so I wont get into it. But one of them, Samuel Johnson, concluded this: Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel. I invite every member of the National Rifle Association to prove him wrong. s e o t y w a roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com m i k i d w rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly

Were in the last push of tourist season and the wheels are starting to fall off the Nesmith train: Everyones sick, no one can keep it together anymore and even the kindergartner is asking when were leaving for vacation. The oldest cant remember his backpack and has even given up complaining about school. He just stumbles to the car barehanded and occasionally barefooted, requiring me to repeatedly circle back home and increasing my commute time. I periodically find myself staring dumbly out the window. Last week, I forgot to unload groceries for the cashier and just wheeled up to the bagger and swiped my credit card for the cartload of loose dry goods. Judging by the look on the cashiers face, hes over it, too, and didnt appreciate my moment of mental vacancy. My soul temporarily left my body and it went somewhere I dont know where it went. It just wasnt in Publix. Ha! I was wondering if they were offering some sort of new service! the customer behind me laughed. No, Publix will wheel the paid groceries to the car, but I really do have to overcome the physical barrier of the conveyer belt myself. This sort of involuntary mental break has become frighteningly frequent. I blame a logjam of obligation that seems to circle around each spring. The prospect of departing for RSW to catch a 7 a.m. flight to anywhere has never sounded so tempting or like such a logical plan. Once we get out of here, we can come back and enjoy a beautiful, steamy, stormy Naples summer where open parking spaces abound and grocery shopping doesnt turn into a blood sport. We all probably need to hit the eject button before we can relax, so Ive compiled a short list of destinations that will also be enjoying a summer off-season in case the idea of dealing with a creeping mass of humanity on your vacation makes you break out in hives. Let my armchair expertise guide you Ive been Googling for weeks. Lake Tahoe: Where do coastal residents want to go when vacation time hits? Mountains. Majestic and redolent of dry pine needles and earth, ski communities offer great deals in the summertime, and Lake Tahoe has alpine beauty and water sports. Festivals of all sorts (yoga, Shakespeare, music, etc.) occupy the locals time when tourists arent heaving themselves down snow-packed mountains. Fly in to Sacramento for easy access or San Francisco for cheaper flights. The Caribbean: This seems like a no-brainer because like Florida the heat and hurricane season put a damper on tourism and prices. However, we know the storms dont typically circle around until late summer and we can withstand the breath from the mouth of Hell. Book now! If youre still a little storm-shy, the southern islands are generally well protected from hurricanes anyway. Central America: Tourist-friendly countries like Costa Rica and Belize are experiencing their rainy season at the same time we are, but Floridians arent scared of afternoon thunderstorms. Both destinations are a good option for people who like sub-tropical summers and just want a change of scenery. Sedona, Ariz.: If dry desert heat doesnt scare you (it does me), then the American Southwest could be calling your name. Apparently, Sedona is super fun in the summer time when locals pull out their own amusement. If I werent positive I wouldnt be vaporized into a cloud of dust, I would totally soak of all the good vibrations from the areas purported energy vortex this summer. In case it needs to be stated, this short list is meant to serve as inspiration, not information. Maybe it will only serve as material for a mental vacation, just be sure not to take it at Publix Im pretty sure their cashiers are one idiot customer away from snapping. Lindsey Nesmith can remember her shoes, but seems to be forgetting her purse a lot. lindseyNESMITHlnesmith@floridaweekly.com

A8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 7-13, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYHEY MAY NOT PROVE TO BE what they first appear to be: the overland route to Nepal, the Scottish highlands, the Kalahari Desert, the surface of the moon. Or the DNA test. In fact, say the growing number of men and women exploring either their health or their genetic histories and then linking them to genealogy, the DNA test is not a thing. Instead, its an adventure that can show you not only what you already knew or suspected, but also many things you might not have guessed in thousands of years which happens to be where such a test can take you on the trail of your ancestors. And that can lead to more research and more startling discoveries that can change the lives of some. A lady said shed been tested and she had asked her sister to be tested, and she was, recalls Larry Vick, a researcher and expert at the Genealogical Society of Palm Beach County, who sometimes helps people trace their origins. She came back and said, somethings not right with their test we werent shown as siblings. But the test turned out to be accurate. That caused some problems, says Mr. Vick. They found some information that might have (upset) the parents. For Janet Wilson, the discoveries revealed connections and possibilities she didnt expect. It was probably about two years ago my sister bought the Geno Project kit, explains Ms. Wilson, the former marketing director for the Edison & Ford Winter Estates, in Fort Myers, and now a spokeswoman at the Canterbury School. We had our brother do the swab, since it is better for a male to do it, since you will get both sides of the DNA. They always knew they were IrishEnglish-German WASPs. But thats not all they discovered. We are (also) 20 percent Chinese, and our family migrated to Papua, New Guinea, too. Theres more, too. Ms. Wilson is 2.5 percent Neanderthal, which makes for great cocktail party conversation, she says. And, we are the sixth great-granddaughters of John Hart, signer of the Declaration of Independence but we know that from our family and not the project. He was the delegate from New Jersey. His house is still standing in Hopewell, there. Funny, both sides of my family have been in the U.S. since the 1600s. My brother married a Japanese citizen and his boys have dual citizenship. Im pretty sure they are the only Japanese citizens whose seventh great-grandfather signed the Declaration! Theres a lesson here for everybody who takes a DNA test, then follows up: be tolerant. When you do a paper trail, when you interview family, work with source documents, marriage and death certificates: one of the first rules of genealogy is that you dont judge your family or ancestors. You go in with the mindset that youll accept what you find, says Robin DeMattia, a freelance writer based in Naples, and a knowledgeable genealogist. Her journey took her to not only the graves of her ancestors in Scotland, where she stood beside the cold, gray stones of the green and emerald isle that cradles them, but she traveled to the funeral recently of a woman who had always loved her uncle, an American killed in combat in World War II. She had no idea how much. But as she rounded out her family history, using both DNA data and traditional genealogical research to bring her uncle more firmly SCIENCEFrom page 1 Larry Vick (a researcher at the Genealogy Society of Palm Beach) The nice thing about all this is, it shows how were all related. It makes us stop and think about how your Y chromosome, for example, can be traced back to my ancestor. Likewise, we can trace back the mitochondrial until we come together in a common ancestor. This is not theoretical we all are related. If the two of us sat down, we could look at our DNA, and we could nd that evidence that shows who our common ancestor was. So, all men living today? Their Y-chromosomes can be traced back to a common ancestor. In my case, my mother, in her DNA, has evidence of an African ancestor who lived in colonial days. She would never know but for this DNA evidence, and neither would I, since I dont have any of that DNA. (Mr. Vick explains that DNA coming from the mothers side can disappear over time in males so the tests will not always show connections to the past.) But she has the DNA, and we know that my mothers second great-grandmother, a woman by the name of Elizabeth Collins, was from Newmans Ridge in Hancock County, Tenn. When I was rst told the story, it didnt mean much. Then I learned my mother had some African ancestry in recent times meaning the last few hundred years and I made a connection: Newmans Ridge was home to the Melungeons, (considered a tri-racial group of African Americans, Europeans and Native Americans) who lived in Appalachia and spread to adjoining counties in Virginia and Tennessee. A lot of people are trying to gure out the origins of Melungeons. What does my mother think of it? She doesnt really have a great interest in all this.Joyce Bedell Comingore, Cape Coral I did our family roots as a present two Christmases ago for my children and brothers I have no sisters. Since my Michigan cousin had done my fathers side of the family, I was left to do my mothers side. My cousin encouraged me to join Ancestry.com. I did. It took me way back to Europe and a principality in Leige controlled by the Holy Roman Bishop. There were no countries then, only the Holy Roman Empire. They came to America before any countries were formed, on the Rosenboom or the Rosetree ship, in 1663. Eventually, the Over Pelt area became Belgium. Van in Dutch meant, from, so they signed on as Van Pelt people from Pelt. Van Pelt was not legally used until 1700. Having done this, I found I was eligible for the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution), and my Marine Corps of cer daughter once a Marine always a Marine, but now a middle school teacher at Trafalgar used my lineage and we both became members of the DAR because of a Revolutionary soldier kin. We both took the DNA tests from Ancestry.com. Mine came back this way: 47 percent Great Britain; 20 percent Europe West; 15 percent Scandinavian; 10 percent Ireland; 4 percent Iberian Peninsula (Spain); 1 percent Europe East; and 1 percent Finland/ Northwest Russian. There was less than 1 percent Italy/Greece and less than 1 percent European Jewish. I was glad for the Irish, always wanted to be Irish, but the big gap was the lack of American Indian. My mother always claimed her fathers mother was Indian, and she was always called squaw girl in her youth. She never let me know because she didnt want the same to happen to me. My six younger brothers knew, and it was a blow to them because they loved being part American Indian. My daughter showed none in her test, but she also showed no Jewish ancestry, and her fathers mother was part Jewish. I was jealous because she showed more Irish than me.Jim RoachMy biological mother and I have developed a wonderful relationship since we nally got to know each other about six years ago. Part of her heart was missing, and part of mine, until we found each other. She was young when she had me I was born on her 18th birthday. She was embarrassed, and didnt want the family to know, even though they all did. But later in life she was warm, welcoming and wonderful. My mother didnt know much about her history. I ran into a dead-end after she talked about my mother and grandfather Dad was deceased. I always thought my family was Irish, I was told my grandfather was this Irish re chief in Flint, Mich., but no. He was French and English. Anyway, I decided to go with the DNA test to track down my father. Apparently, he was quite the traveling man in the 1950s. He painted water towers, sang and played guitars in bars, and got women pregnant from Missouri where hes from, to Michigan to Wisconsin and a few states in between (I have 12 siblings, Ive learned). He was very likeable, apparently. I thought I was the oldest, but I discovered an older sister in Michigan who grew up 10 miles from me. Father was only 17 when he got her mother pregnant, and a year later got my mother pregnant. When you get tested, you can elect to join the matching crowd, and they look through all the people tested and rank them by percentage of DNA you share. Then, you can send them double-blind messages. It works very well for contacting people who may or may not contact you back. Maybe because Im kind of geeky I have jumped into this. In November when I got my results back, on the heritage side Ive found over 2,000 relatives going back to royalty from Scotland, and a lot of them from England. They keep birth and christening records in England, and those are all electronic. On my biological fathers side some of the early settlers were there when they built the railroad through the Old West. There were a lot of relatives in Salem, Mass., in 1692, but I dont know which side they were on the witches or the accusers. The way you nd ancestors now has become so re ned. I found a picture of my great-great grandfather, who had six kids I dont want to blur the difference between nding ancestors and studying DNA, but thats in fact whats happening.VICK BEDELL ROACH COURTESY PHOTORobin DeMattia in Scotland.SEE SCIENCE, A9

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 7-13, 2016 NEWS A9 BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.com Mr. Doe, a Palm Beach County business owner, shared both his story and photographs with Florida Weekly but asked that his real name not be used. I was adopted at birth, with my sister, who is three years older. Weve known it our whole lives. My father was a teacher and my mother a homemaker and business manager in Napa California I hit the jackpot with everything in my childhood. So I never felt the need to search for my biological family. But my sister felt differently. So now its Christmas 2014, were in California with my parents, my sister is there, my partner of 27 years, and my sister tells me about this 23andme. She wants to know if I would like to have that for Christmas. Ah, no. I wouldnt, I said. But then she told me about other benefits. At the time, I thought it was just, youre this much French or English or whatever. But she said it lets you know some of your medical traits, and that piqued my interest. So I do it, and now its early in 2015. When I first got back results, I learned there was a first cousin, male, who had started the process but filled out no information. I did send an email saying Id like to know any family information he wanted to share, but never heard back, and thought nothing else of it. Two months later I get an email through the website and I didnt even know about this component, that you could do the DNA test and find relatives. I thought it was just about heritage in general terms, and then medical issues. But I get this email out of the blue from a woman who said that she thought we were siblings. Her results said she might have a half brother, and I might be him. I was talking to her 15 minutes later. I learned that my bio-dads first marriage had two bio kids, my sisters, and that I was the product of an affair, which ended the marriage. My sister is now living in Korea, the spouse of someone in the State Department, and she told me about my other half-sister who lives outside of Dallas. So my sister Pamela, who first contacted me, emailed my sister Maryann in Dallas, and we talked that evening. Shes telling me generally about the family, and she tells me my bio-dad remarried and had three more children. Suddenly, in 45 minutes, I learn I have FIVE siblings. Its crazy. The sibling component had never crossed my mind when I did this test. But it was pretty cool. So the next night I spoke to my three siblings from his second marriage. Theyre younger. The middle son, who is getting married in April, even invited me to his wedding. I havent shared this story, in part because my bio-mother was underage (about 14). But the siblings Ive spoken to are just lovely: theyre smart, funny, they couldnt have been more welcoming, theyre open but they have boundaries its really nice. I think in the long term this knowledge will be a very, very good thing, for everybody, but it may take awhile for some to see it that way. For me, when I log on to the website, I now have thousands of people I share this DNA with. With some its just fractions, like a half or just one percent and the most was 10 percent. Heres what it shows: it shows how interconnected we all are. So I absolutely think its going to change the world. The remarkable story of John Doe into the circle so he wouldnt be forgotten, she found out. That woman had married, raised a family and grown old remembering her uncle. When Ms. DeMattia carried a picture of him with her to the funeral an explorer of sorts among strangers she discovered a viewing table where his photographs were prominently displayed beside burning candles. She broke into tears and so did they, all warmly embracing her. They had all been told about her uncle; in fact, they knew a great deal about him she didnt, because her grandmother rarely talked about his loss. So now he has returned to the family, in a manner of speaking. Such stories are not uncommon among genealogists or DNA mappers. You have to be prepared for what it will tell you, Ms. DeMattia concludes. Aint that the truth. People find siblings they didnt know they had, or conversely, siblings who turn out not be their siblings. They discover a heritage directly descended from Neanderthals. They come across an explanation, perhaps, of why they leaned toward a given vocation from an early age (one man who never knew his biological father had always wanted to be a D.J. when he was young. Turns out, that was his fathers vocation). They learn that their biological mothers were only very young teenagers when they gave birth which might suggest that a crime occurred, and thus a family secret is at risk. All of that can happen. And so can the discovery that individuals might be subject to certain maladies. There are 36 medical markers the DNA tests provide, including common ones for diseases such as cystic fibrosis. Having that information for many is a way of heading off problems before they start, they say. Popular companies that do DNA tests and popular companies that traditionally have done family genealogies are now linking up so that people who participate can find each other. The cost ranges from less than $100 to about $200 for all the basic information. Such organizations as 23andme (named for the 23 chromosomes humans have) or ancestry.com or others send clients a kit seeking a DNA sample. They want saliva, explains John Doe, a Palm Beach County business owner who asked that his real name not be used, but shared his story. Its a test tube and you spit in it. A lot they want a lot of saliva. Then you pop the cork in and send it back. About six weeks later, your life may change. DNA is a pathway, says Jim Roach, a 64-year-old Lee County resident who was adopted at birth, in Michigan, and knew little about his own family history until recently. You can combine it with ancestry programs, which look back at mostly dead people, and the DNA allows you to link to other people in your ancestry chain, who are managing their own ancestry sites. The DNA also allows you to match yours with other people who have submitted theirs. Now that millions are doing that, the matches have become easier. And now, Mr. Roach has learned a number of things, some amusing and some transforming. For example, hes related to Neanderthals, like Ms. Wilson. Heres how that works, he explains. Most of my ancient relatives came from the Neander Valley in Germany or the Neanderthal tribes. I have 288 variants which means that out of all 23 chromosomes and hundreds of little chunks of genetic material, there are 288 variants that link me back to Neanderthal man. The DNA max in that crowd, the Neanderthal crowd, is 387. So it confirms that for people who match my DNA in 23andme, were kind of like DNA Friends. This goes back 60,000 years. Its real geekdom stuff. On the other hand and what isnt just geekdom stuff is Mr. Roachs discovery that he has 12 siblings, all half-brothers or half-sisters, including an older sister who was born the year before he was and grew up only 10 miles from him without their ever knowing. To describe the joy I had last month when Theresa (his wife) and I flew my older sister down here from Flint she spent four days with us I cant do it. We sat and chatted and connected, she was an only child that kept my fathers last name. Even though shes a half sister and we didnt meet in the first 64 years in my life, it was an immediate connection I never would have had, had I not started looking. No, it didnt help me in any practical way, but it made me feel more whole. For most adoptees, thats a good thing. Adoptees in particular can benefit from the new technologies that use DNA to learn where they came from and who their parents were, he notes. By using DNA tests and genealogical records together, they can get around state laws that seal off those records, isolating them as a class of Americans who are denied access to their own public-records histories. But not all feel that such curiosity or knowledge has much positive value. John Giddyup Bunch, a fishing guide and philanthropist, was also adopted. (Capt. Bunch now runs the nonprofit Operation Open Arms, based on Captiva Island near Sanibel, an organization that embraces combat veterans on leave or concluding their service, as he once did himself from the Marine Corps and Vietnam.) Ive done (the DNA test), he says. The process does not make you a better person. Chances are beyond excellent you will not be impressed by the general and vague DNA results. Who you are today is worth so far much more than who got together with who on a dark and stormy night. There are better ways to spend your hard-earned money. For the expense and return on investment, no one is really going to be impressed. Enlighten me: How does DNA info help you get a job, a date, a husband, wife or a great burger? I regret learning of being from prime stock. Useless 411. But many see the tests and their novel or revealing histories as not only fascinating maps plotting genetic progress across vast stretches of both time and geography, but as the anatomy of potentially new communities that cross the divides of race, religion, culture and country. Only time, and genetics, perhaps, will tell if that proves to be true. Suddenly, in 45 minutes, I learn I have FIVE siblings. Its crazy. The sibling component had never crossed my mind when I did this test ... it was pretty cool. John Doe, who took DNA test to nd relativesCOURTESY PHOTOSJohn Doe, left, and his biological father.

DENTAL IMPLANTS Starting at $1,495 A celebratory send-off puts Betsy the loggerhead out to sea SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Conservancy of Southwest Florida bid final farewell to Betsy, the organizations beloved loggerhead, releasing the sea turtle near the Ten Thousand Islands on March 29. Betsy had served as an ambassador for her species within the Conservancys Dalton Discovery Center for two years. Before she even hatched from her nest in Boca Raton, Betsy was part of a gender study with Florida Atlantic University that linked nest temperature to the gender of hatchlings. Her gender was determined while she was still in her egg, which hatched on July 31, 2013. Several months later, she was transferred to the Conservancy for nurturing until she would be large enough for release into the wild. Betsy came to the Conservancy weighing 1.07 pounds and measuring 14.1 centimeters in length. To be eligible for release into the wild, captive loggerhead sea turtles must have a carapace length of at least 45 centimeters. At her March 29 release, Betsys carapace was 45 centimeters and she weighed 29.5 pounds. Conservancy biologists placed a flipper tag and a PIT tag on Betsy prior to her release. With these devices in place, biologists will be able to determine her origin and release location, should Betsy be found following release.A very special nameBetsy the loggerhead was named after the late Betsy Sandstrom, a long-time sea turtle advocate and volunteer for the Bonita Springs/Fort Myers Beach organization Turtle Time. Ms. Sandstrom died from cancer two years ago. Following the sea turtles arrival in 2014, the Conservancy launched a social media contest to help give the loggerhead a name. Upon learning of the contest, one of Ms. Sandstrom's friends suggested naming the turtle in her honor. Before she died, Ms. Sandstrom was able to meet her namesake; members of her family returned to the Conservancy to watch the turtles release. We are experiencing many emotions with Betsys release because this sea turtles story is one of great legacy. Named after such an inspiring individual, Betsy has gone on to accomplish great things at the Conservancy, helping us share her story and spread awareness about the loggerhead species, said Rob Moher, president and CEO of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. While sad to see her leave us, we are ecstatic to release her into the wild where she will continue to flourish. Loggerheads hatchlings have a very low survival rate in the wild. Only one in 1,000 sea turtles survives to adulthood. True to its mission of protecting Southwest Floridas water, land and wildlife, the Conservancy began the Florida Sea Turtle Monitoring and Protection Program in 1982 on Keewaydin Island. Now in its 34th year, the program has saved more than 265,000 loggerheads.A new arrivalThe day after Betsy swam off into the waves, the Conservancy welcomed a new juvenile loggerhead to its facilities. Visitors can help name the new loggerhead by submitting their suggestions in person at the Dalton Discovery Center through April 10. A committee of staff, interns and volunteers will review the submissions and select a name, which will be announced during the Conservancy of Southwest Floridas Earth Day Festival on Saturday, April 16. COURTESY PHOTOS Betsy Sandstrom with a loggerhead hatchling during her work on behalf of Turtle Time. When cancer rendered her too ill to volunteer, Ms. Sandstrom placed temporary tattoos on her head to help raise awareness about the threatened species.

The company claimed Bailey was insubordinate and that any complaints he had were merely because he is too sensitive to workplace fun and unable to forgive and forget his supervisors team-building spirit. According to an administrative law judge, the fun included, among other things, detonating unannounced, ear-splitting PVC potato guns (using golf balls and other items) on the job and Baileys bosss placing his own feces in a bag inside Baileys lunch pail.

(Following the judges decision, Baileys two supervisors resigned.)Questionable judgmentsThe Agony and Tediousness of Peeling: The Canadian supermarket chain Sobeys has recently been selling pre-cut avocado halves, sealed in plastic packages. Said a spokesman, the product eliminates the guesswork ... if you are not familiar with peeling and seeding a fresh avocado. Also, recently, Whole Foods began selling peeled mandarin oranges, sealed in recyclable plastic, at $5.99 a pound (but withdrew the product in March, with an apology and promise to sell the oranges only in their natural packaging: the peel).The continuing crisis The Most Florida Story: State officials have notified retired pro wrestler Mary Thorn of Lakeland that, according to the law, her pet alligator (Rambo), age 15, having grown to 6 feet in length, may no longer be kept at home unless she provides at least 2 1/2 acres of roaming space. She made a public plea in March, warning that confiscating Rambo would kill him, as he is supersensitive to sunlight (having been raised inside her home) and must wear clothes and sunscreen when outside (though Thorn pointed out that he is potty-trained and wags his tail when needing to answer natures call). (At press time, the investigation of Rambo was still ongoing.) The Most Canada Story: Ms. Philicity Lafrenier, 25, was charged with several break-and-enter and theft crimes in March in Prince George, British Columbia, after leading police on a half-mile chase as she made her getaway on an ice floe on the Nechako River. When police caught up, she attempted to dispose of items she had stolen (even though still on the ice) by burning them in a small fire, but an officer and a police dog jumped in the water to subdue her.)Cant possibly be true Wall of Sound, Updated: Police, finally armed with a warrant after months of neighbors complaints about loud music, raided Michael Bakers small one-bedroom apartment in Croydon, England, in March and confiscated 34 loudspeakers that allegedly Baker had been using at high volume at all hours. After entering the home with the aid of a locksmith, police left Baker with only a CD player and a pair of earphones. Nicholas Ragin finally got his conviction overturned in March, but it took 10 years before the U.S. Court of Appeals declared that his right to counsel had been violated because his lawyer slept during various parts of Ragins conspiracy and racketeering trial. (His sentence had 20 more years to run.) One juror later recalled that lawyer Nikita Mackey slept almost every day, morning and evening for minutes at least. Once, according to court documents, after the trial judge called Mackeys name loudly, only belatedly getting a response, Mackey jumped up and sort of looked around and was licking his lips ... and looked sort of confused and looked around the room. (The prosecutor said she intends to retry Ragin.) NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERDDistributed by Universal Press Syndicate

Dont fall for lottery email scamThe Florida Lottery is warning citizens of a lottery scam in which scammers are sending emails to the public in an effort to obtain personal and financial information. The email includes the Florida Lottery logo and uses the Florida Lottery headquarters address as part of the letterhead. In further efforts to appear legitimate, it references companies including LinkedIn and Microsoft. The message states that the recipient has won a prize and should contact the listed Contact Person to claim his or her prize. It also asks the individual to provide general information required to claim the prize. The email does not ask the individual to pay or provide financial information, but once he or she responds to the Contact Person, the scammers will then request financial information and/or that a tax or fee be paid to claim the prize. The Florida Lottery does not contact players to inform them that they have won a prize unless they have entered a promotional game or second-chance drawing on the official Florida Lottery website or social media pages. Individuals who receive an email similar to the one attached should not respond to the email. For more information and to find other tips to protect yourself, visit flalottery.com.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 7-13, 2016 NEWS A21 BEHIND THE WHEELThe 2016 Chevrolet Camaro: Looks similar, feels brilliantly newWhen Chevrolet brought back the Camaro in 2010, the modern take on the iconic first generation design was enough to keep us happy. Fast-forward to today, and were no longer willing to commit on appearance alone. General Motors must have understood this idea from the onset, as the 2016 Camaro does more than update its throwback looks. Better engineering is helping this speedy machine leap a generation ahead. Its a new car on a new platform but it might be tough to recognize this at first. Those who know Camaros will notice the revised front end with smaller upper grille that gives the headlights a more aggressive furrowed brow. Theres even a touch of modern styling with optional LED accent lights. Those who dont follow Camaros that closely might just miss these and other new cues because it still retains the overall retro appearance. Regardless of exterior observations, everyone will appreciate the new interior. The previous car was designed a when a touch-screen infotainment system was not a priority, and the old setup felt cramped as technology was added each year. This was completely solved in the 2016 car. Starting with a clean sheet, designers made the tough decision of eliminating the center-mounted quad-gauge package that was an icon on the first generation. In its place are the air-conditioning vents that used to be on the top of the dash. They utilize a clever and spacesaving design that lets the driver/passenger adjust the climate control by turning the surrounding chrome bezels. This allows for a cleaner appearance on the dashboard, which helps because the infotainment touch screen is now standard on all models, from the base $26,695 1LT trim to a $42,000-plus loaded 2SS model. The touch-screen display is the true hub of this car; it feels like the designers started with this crucial unit and built everything around it. It controls the stereo, Bluetooth connection, navigation and Apple/Android complete phone linking. Theres even an app to program an optional interior package that enables any one of 24 accent colors on demand. The space-saving interior design is really needed. Theres minimal windshield space, so nothing can rise too high above the dashboard. This is a product of Chevrolet wanting that cool, low-slung, aggressive exterior. It also meant lowering the roofline and raising the door line. The result is an interior that can still accommodate tall people, but with less glass space than competing sports cars, the feeling is almost coffin-like. The limited glasshouse is nothing new in the sports-car world, however, and potential Camaro buyers will individually know if the interior is right for them within the first few minutes of a test drive. And this is only a coupe problem; the convertible easily solves this setback.Also what helps erase the encompassing interior is the new Camaros feeling on the road. It rides on the same platform that Cadillac uses to fight BMWs. That means its stiff over bumps and has exceptionally tight handling in corners. The new Camaro feels like the kind of sports car that once only came from Japan and Europe.Our test car had the 3.6-liter V6 engine. Six-cylinder Camaros used to be the laughable wannabe base car for those who couldnt afford the V8s, but that is no longer the case. With 335 horsepower, it makes 10 hp more than the highestlevel special edition eight-cylinder Camaro from 15 years ago. The V6 is in the middle of the new engine lineup, between a 275-hp turbocharged four cylinder and a 455-hp V8 (a special ZL1 edition with 640 hp was just announced, and well certainly feature that one when it hits the streets next year). The six-cylinder plays its central role perfectly. The exhaust notes of bigdisplacement muscle cars have a rough grumble, and highrevving imports bellow an intense precision tempo. This difference has created fiercely loyal camps in the sports-car world. With a trumpeted rhythm that feels both brawny and intelligent, the Camaros V6 motor seems to bridge the gap. It is this kind of thoughtfulness that makes the 2016 Camaro appealing. No longer just pandering to the nostalgia and muscle car crowds, it provides value in both flash and substance. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

The news provided a perfect capstone to the Moroccan-themed evening at the NGALA Private Reserve east of Naples. Mrs. Cohens gift will name the garden area adjacent to the new hospital building. With seating areas and tables, play structures, a water feature, herb and butterfly ga rdens and more, the garden will give young patients, their family members and friends and a place for respite from hospitalization and treatment. Spending time with the young patients in attendance at Wild About Kids was certainly a highlight and reminded me how important it is to provide this type of comforting garden area, Mrs. Cohen said. She added that when her own daughter was ill, We both drew strength from the beautiful surroundings of a garden area that provided solace and peace during difficult times. The 128-bed Golisano Childrens Hospital building is under construction on the grounds of Lee Memorial Health Systems HealthPark Medical Center in South Fort Myers. Opening is on target for the spring of 2017. The garden represents the facilitys major outdoor design element. Providing children from across our region with vital hospital care is truly a noble cause. It is in that spirit that I decided to make my pledge to support Golisano Childrens Hospitals capital campaign, Mrs. Cohen said when asked to reflect upon her donation. It is my hope the many young patients and families who use the garden will find it a means to lift their spirits while undergoing treatment. LMHS President Jim Nathan described Mrs. Cohen and her late husband, Harvey, as caring donors to vital community organizations in Southwest Florida for decades. The couples first legacy gift helped build the NCH hospital campus in North Naples. After Mr. Cohens death in 2011, less than a year after their only daughter, Fran, had died from breast cancer, a lead gift to Florida Gulf Coast University from Mrs. Cohen led to the renaming of the schools student center to the Harvey and Janet Cohen Center. About the $3 million gift to fund the childrens hospital garden Mr. Nathan said, Mrs. Cohens generosity through her sponsorship of Wild About Kids followed by this magnificent pledge represents a true investment in the health and well-being of our regions children and their families Her support marks another major milestone in our mission to assure lifesaving and life-changing care while keeping children with complex health needs as close to home as possible Were very honored and excited that Mrs. Cohens compassion and concern for children will live-on in perpetuity through what is truly a gift that will keep on giving.

Falls limit an older drivers ability to function behind the wheel and can make driving risky for themselves and others on the road. These findings are important since annually a record 12 million older adults will experience a fall. Drivers age 60 and older are involved in more than 400,000 crashes each year, according to Peter Kissinger, president and CEO of the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. This research is critical because it shows that we can use an older drivers fall history to identify if they are at greater risk for a crash, he says. Titled Associations Between Falls and Driving Outcomes in Older Adults, the report is the latest research released in the AAA foundations Longitudinal Research on Aging Drivers LongROAD project. Researchers from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus along with the foundation say that falls can increase crash risk in two ways: 1. They can result in a loss of functional ability (i.e., wrist fractures or a broken leg), which can make it difficult for older drivers to steer or brake to avoid a crash. 2. They can increase an individuals fear of falling, which can lead to a decrease in physical activity, when subsequently Falls often scare people into being more sedentary, but decreasing physical activity can weaken muscles and coordination, thus making someone more likely to be in a crash, says Michelle Harris, a traffic safety consultant for AAA-The Auto Club Group. The new research suggests that seniors and their families should view falls as a possible early indicator of declining physical fitness. Addressing the health issues that originally led to the fall lower body weakness, poor balance, slow reaction time, certain medications, dizziness or vision problems, for example can help older drivers strengthen their functional ability and lower their risk for crashing or experiencing another fall in the future. Older drivers should find activities that enhance balance, strengthen muscles and promote flexibility, Ms. Harris continues. Even a low-impact fitness training program or driver improvement course can help safely extend an older drivers years on the road. Fall prevention is a great way for older drivers to keep themselves and others safe while on the road. Those concerned about a parent or other older driver should help them monitor risk factors that address health concerns or household dangers. AAA recommends a series of exercises and stretches to improve neck, shoulder, trunk, back and overall body flexibility, which can help a driver who has suffered from a recent fall. As a leading advocate for senior driver safety, AAA also offers a variety of programs and resources to help older drivers improve their driving performance and avoid crashes.

HEALTHY LIVING Understand the Zika virus risk BY KALI LYNCHLee Memorial Health SystemThough the Zika virus was first discovered in the 1940s, it has recently become a concern after outbreaks in a number of countries and territories in the Americas. The World Health Organization declared the Zika virus an international public health emergency due to the link to birth defects, including brain damage in newborns. In Florida, and Lee County, the cases of Zika virus so far have been travelrelated. Lee Memorial Health System is prepared for any cases of Zika virus, explains Steve Streed, system director of epidemiology and infection control. We are carefully monitoring all advisories from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Florida Department of Health and the Lee County Department of Health. If someone presents to our facilities with possible symptoms, the first question we ask is about travel whether the person or someone they are close to has traveled to areas with Zika activity. If the answer is yes, we refer to the algorithm created by the health department to determine if we need to submit lab samples blood, urine or both for testing. Mr. Streed says the Zika virus is a relatively minor disease, and only 1 in 5 people infected develop symptoms which can include fever, rash, joint pain and red eyes. But, the infectious nature of the virus is not correlated with visible disease, meaning that someone can transmit the virus without realizing they have it. It is mostly spread through mosquito bites, but can also be spread through sexual intercourse. So, the hope is that people who traveled to affected areas will understand the risk and take precautions. It is the personal responsibility of those who travel to infected areas to prevent possible harm to others, Mr. Streed says. Avoid mosquito bites by using repellents and wearing long-sleeved clothing. Understand that Zika can be spread through sexual activity, so use protection. Seek medical attention if you develop symptoms. The Zika virus does not last long in the body, usually a week to 10 days. There is no vaccine to prevent Zika or medicine to treat it. The bottom line with the Zika virus is to be aware of your risk for infection and transmission of the disease, and to take necessary precautions.

When it comes to the skin of your face, and especially the delicate tissue around your eyes, no product can come surgery. no single cause (and therefore no single cure): allergic reactions, water retention, skin irritants and fat deposits can all contribute to that pinhole-in-the-snow look that greets so many of us in the mirror each morning. If altering your sleep position, diet, contact lenses and exposure to irritants (like sun and cosmetics) arent able to achieve the effect you want, you may consider eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) as a more satisfying and long term solution. Some people have naturally drooping upper eyelids, which become more pronounced as they age, and can interfere with vision, movement and tearing. Others begin to notice the effects of gravity only when they look very closely (when applying makeup or inserting contact lenses), but want to address the problem before it becomes more apparent to others. Lower eyelids can develop bags and discoloration that appear to cast shadows over your face. In some cases, the dents and hollows under the eyes can be improved youre looking for a long-term solution, blepharoplasty may be your answer. Eyelid surgery can be persurgeons, maxillofacial surgeons and ophthalmologists, though obviously an experienced eye surgeon (oculoplastic specialist) will have the most experience. Dr. Patrick Flaharty is one of the relatively few oculoplastic surgeons in the U.S. who specializes in cosmetic surgery of the tissue, muscle and bone surrounding the eye. Hell consult with you prior to your surgery to make sure youre a good candidate and that your appearance goals are consistent with the possibilities. Before having the surgery, be matory drugs or herbal supplements, as these can increase bleeding. You can return to wearing makeup and contact lenses as soon as Dr. Flaharty removes your sutures, typically one week after the surgery. Remember, bruising, swelling and discoloration are all part of your bodys natural healing process, so dont panic if you dont see clear results right away.

The percentage of cats considered to be overweight (10 to 19 percent greater than ideal weight) or obese (20 percent or greater than ideal body weight) has reached a whopping 58 percent, according to a survey by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention. That makes excess weight the No. 1 nutritional disorder in cats. Carrying too many pounds is linked to a number of feline health problems. Obese cats are more likely to suffer a liver disease called hepatic lipidosis; feline urinary tract disease; diabetes; lameness; complications from anesthesia; and nonallergenic skin conditions. Whats the skinny on the increase in tubby tabbies? It may be as simple as a lack of recognition of what a healthy cat looks and feels like. A study published in the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery in 2010 found that nearly 34 percent of owners underestimated their cats body condition score. Body condition scores rank cats on a 5-point scale, with 1 being emaciated, 2 thin, 3 ideal, 4 heavy and 5 grossly obese. In a hands-on test, it should be easy to feel a cats ribs and other prominent bones using light pressure. If your cat falls into category 4 or 5, its time to institute a kitty weight loss plan to help him regain a slim, trim figure. Start with a veterinary exam to rule out medical problems that might be causing the weight gain. A weigh-in establishes current weight so a goal weight can be determined. Your first thought might be to cut back on the amount of food you give, but that just leads to a cat who is hungry and unhappy. A different food may be a better option. Feeding a diet that swaps out carbohydrates for proteins appears to be useful for weight loss, says Margie Scherk, DVM, speaking on feline weight management at the World Feline Veterinary Conference in San Diego, California, last October. And be aware that even 10 extra pieces a day of kibble formulated for normal weight maintenance can cause a cat to gain a pound in a year. Measure food and give it at regular mealtimes instead of free feeding. Diet is a big part of helping cats lose weight, but getting them moving is important, too. You might not be able to take your cat jogging or get him to walk on a treadmill, but there are plenty of creative ways to add exercise to your pets life and at the same time provide a more stimulating environment. An easy way to keep him moving while youre gone during the day is to divide the amount of food he receives daily into six or seven portions. Place each portion in a small container, and hide them throughout the house. Mix up your hiding places so he has to work to find his food each day. Interactive play is also important. Use toys to encourage him to walk and run around the house. Your cat is a predator, so focus on his love of stalking and chasing. Cats have short attention spans, so playtime of two to five minutes a few times a day is plenty. Since cats are nocturnal, you may find that he is more interested in being active after the sun goes down. Introduce exercise gently and gradually. Cats who are overweight or obese can injure their joints if they do too much too quickly. Most important, remember that prevention is best when it comes to obesity. Weight gain is more likely after cats turn 2 years old, so dont let them become sedentary as they mature. Thats a heck of a lot easier than trying to change their eating habits or food after they have put on too many pounds. For successful weight loss, cats need reduced calories, more exercise and close monitoring.

One way that parents can reduce their childrens risk of experiencing a sports-related concussion is to have them outtted with custommade, properly tted mouth guards that dentists provide. According to a study of more than 400 high school football players, those wearing store-bought, over-the-counter mouth guards were more than twice as likely to suer mild traumatic brain injuries (MTBIs)/concussions than those wearing custom-t mouth guards.

Orr, OD, MD, MD, OD, OD SWFLEYE.COM CALL TODAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT! stephanieDAVIS sdavis@floridaweekly.com THE DIVA DIARIESTake a day off and say hello to paradiseThe signs are everywhere: A friend whose husband is a pilot for Delta reports that he says flights leaving RSW for the north and the Midwest these days are full. I live in a condo where management has posted a list of extended leave procedures, i.e., Remove all items from your balcony, and Remove food from your refrigerator/freezer that may spoil in the event of a power loss. You get the gist. My good friend who owns a popular restaurant tells me her place is filled with locals who are finally able to get a table. Easter has come and gone, as has spring training baseball, and tax day is right around the corner. Folks, were about to get Southwest Florida back to ourselves, and while I know places like Carrabbas and Applebees might see a slight slump in business (something tells me theyll survive until next season), for most of us especially those of us who navigate area roads in motor vehicles on a regular basis its time to celebrate. And by celebrate, I mean play hooky. I saw an Internet meme recently that read simply: Stop the glorification of busy. When someone asks how you are and you say, Busy! they usually respond with, Thats GREAT! Really? I mean, whats so great about it? I get that careers are important and theres money to be made, but sometimes its important to clear your schedule and take a day off during the week just so you can remind yourself why you live in Southwest Florida. I took the Monday after Easter off and accepted a girlfriends invite to attend the seasons final spring training game at JetBlue Stadium. It was a lovely day, not too terribly hot. We started at 11 a.m. with some nice healthy grapefruit juice with a splash or three of vodka. Then I threw out my diet rules for a Fenway Frank hot dog and some peanuts in the shell. It was David Ortizs last training game at the park, so everyone made a big deal about Big Papi. I put my phone on silent and happily ignored all calls, texts and emails. We took pictures, laughed, gossiped and enjoyed the day. Miraculously enough, all those voicemails, texts and emails were still there the next day. The world had not come to a screeching halt just because I had not responded to them immediately. Now that traffic has calmed down, its not going to take you hours to get to the beach. So, GO! Rent bicycles, have a margarita, shop in the boutiques and buy that sparkly swimsuit cover-up thats 50 percent off. Go to a resort, pay the parking fee for the day and rent a cabana and have the pool boy bring you decadent frozen drinks with umbrellas in them. Eat a basket of fries.Go rent some kayaks. Take an airboat ride in the Everglades. Hit the casino in Immokalee and win some cash. Take a jaunt up to Punta Gorda and sky dive. Get up early and drive to South Beach for the day. Play hooky. Its April, and for the first time since November, youve got your paradise back. Enjoy it. Remember what Ferris Bueller said when he took a day off: Life moves pretty fast. If you dont stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week

Its ultimate goal is creating independence through employment. Because of Goodwill, Mark Pierce of Punta Gorda was finally able to keep a job longer than a month and eventually buy a new car and a house. Cindy Scott, now the manager of the Island Park store, could step in to support her family after her husband was injured 22 years ago. Goodwills presence has grown exponentially throughout the five-county region during its first half-century. More than 900 people work at 30 locations recognizable by Goodwills familiar blue, white and black logoed smiling face. Donations and ultimately the resale of others castoffs funds 85 percent of the agencys services, says Kirsten ODonnell, director of public relations and marketing. The purpose of our stores is to generate revenue to support our programs, she says. For a long time, donations were handled from a centralized location because we only had three or four stores. By 1986, our 20th anniversary, we had 100 employees in eight retail stories and when I started in 2008 there were 400 employees and 22 stores. The local Goodwill was launched by a whos-who of Fort Myers businessmen after a visit to the Suncoast facility in Tampa. They were blown away by what they saw, Ms. ODonnell says. They recognized a need in Fort Myers, secured funding and opened a store downtown. It started as a branch of Suncoast like most did in the state, was incorporated as a division of Goodwill Suncoast in 1966 and became autonomous in 1982. For the first 48 years, Goodwills local headquarters operated from the same plot of land on Bayshore Drive in North Fort Myers, first in an old citrus-packing plant that was torn down in the mid1970s and replaced by a 20,000-squarefoot steel structure. A 10,000-square-foot addition was built in 1994. We kept growing and growing in the same space, says Ms. ODonnell. We moved to Fort Myers in 2013 to a much larger building in the Tice area. Its new digs offer 120,000 square feet and the Goodwill LIFE (Life Institute for Education) Academy, a tuition-free openenrollment Lee County charter school that provides life skills, career exploration and job training for students with physical and intellectual challenges. After meeting with MaryJane Nickerson, a Goodwill employment consultant, Mr. Pierce found gainful employment at Goodwill nearly six years ago. He was referred to the agency because he wasnt able to hold a long-term job, often let go after just a few weeks for asking questions and seeking instruction. Mr. Pierce is the gentleman greeting people dropping off donations at the Tamiami Trail store in Punta Gorda and was recognized in 2013 as a Breakthrough Achiever. They work with you if you have disabilities and stuff and dont write you up and lose patience like the other jobs Ive been in, Mr. Pierce says. They had me work in multiple places and fit me into the job best suited for me. By staying employed, Mr. Pierce has been able to buy a new car and added to his savings for a house he purchased in Punta Gorda Isles near his parents. The goal of Goodwill is to teach job skills so employees eventually transition to other businesses. But many like working for the organization so much, they stay including Kim Yape who used to ride her horse to work when she started working at the processing center 43 years ago as a high school senior. Goodwill has been her only employer since she was referred by a counselor through the school-to-work program which helps students with disabilities train for a job, continue their education, or find work after high school. The Able Trust High School High Tech program also helped recent Golden Gate High School graduate Natalie Galindez overcome her concerns about finding employment after school because of her cognitive disabilities. Offered at 13 regional high schools, the program provides career exploration for students with disabilities. Coordinator Claudia Lozano prepared Ms. Galindez for a summertime job a nearby Goodwill store. It was the first paid job she ever had in her life, says Ms. Lozano. That opened her eyes, that she can be productive, proactive, and responsible. Those were the goals we set for the summer job. Working improved the 22-year-olds self-confidence and training in interviewing landed her a seasonal job at Publix which has since transitioned into a permanent part-time position. When I first met Claudia, I didnt have nothing going on, says Ms. Galindez, named Goodwills 2016 Breakthrough Graduate. She came around in my life, and she opened it. Her success, its all about her, says Ms. Lozano. Natalie deserves this because she makes a great effort to overcome all the barriers especially our biases and barriers to including people with disabilities in our lives. Working has given Ms. Galindez spending money to go out with friends and a new outlook on life. Shed eventually like to continue her education. The Goodwill story in Southwest Florida has also been shaped by visionary board members identifying community needs. Two decades ago a member championed housing for residents with disabilities after discovering there were no facilities available for her adult son. Fifteen of the organizations 16 incomesensitive apartment buildings provide independent living for residents with disabilities in Lee, Charlotte and Hendry counties. There are no facilities in Collier County because land is too expensive. Though its microenterprise program, job link centers, referrals to other agencies for food stamps and other services, Goodwill served 42,000 people last year about one in every 28 residents and up from 8,000 people in 2008, the start of the economic recession. We assess the community needs and weave those into our mission, says Ms. ODonnell. The agency now has a major salvage operation that keeps unusable furniture and clothing out of landfills and provides additional revenue. It has a furniture crusher that reduces sofas to recyclable metals and textiles. But that income is reliant on the salvage market and affected by Somali pirates. We send a lot of textiles to Africa but no one wants to take a big cargo ship there because of the threat, Ms. ODonnell says. Every donation helps, giving Goodwill the resources to assist the homeless, place people in jobs and aid those on a downward spiral after losing a job. Cindy Scott started working as a parttime cashier at Goodwills Bonita Springs location after her husband was injured. More than 22 years later, shes now the store manager at Island Park, one of the nonprofits largest stores. I was a stay-at-home mom, she says. I love everything about working for Goodwill our customers and our client employees. Its amazing to see the things that come through here you think people wouldnt want but do. Its wonderful to see our clients working, having a good time and finding jobs elsewhere. It feels so good when they advance. I love Goodwill. I love my job.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 7-13, 2016 BUSINESS B5 MONEY & INVESTINGIncreases in minimum wage produce winners, losersWith all of the focus on national politics these days, you may have overlooked a quiet revolution rolling across the U.S. driven by state and local elected officials. I am referring to dramatic increases in the minimum wage. In the last week both New York and California have passed laws that will raise this number to $15 over the next several years. Los Angeles, Seattle and San Francisco have already passed regulations increasing their wages to $15 over time. And New Jersey and Washington, D.C., are expected to have minimum wage proposals on their ballots in November. So why are minimum wage increases so popular right now and are they really good for the country? The call to increase minimum wages has been building over the last several years as the wealth gap between the richest Americans and the poorest has grown. And even though we have had a relatively strong economy, low unemployment, increasing corporate income, and a bullish stock market, the average persons income has barely moved. In Washington D.C., Democrats and Republicans have battled over how to rectify this situation but the result has only been deadlock. As a result, many local and state politicians have attempted to develop their own solutions, one of which has been to increase their minimum wage.The advantages to a higher minimum wage are fairly obvious. The lowest income Americans will see a higher paycheck. And because those who earn the least tend to spend all of their paycheck each week, the thought is that this will immediately boost the entire local economy as the money flows into various businesses. Opponents to a higher minimum wage argue that a higher minimum wage leads to inflation for everyone as businesses raise prices to pay higher wages. More specifically, they assert that businesses that poorer people tend to shop at, such as fast food restaurants and large box retailers, would most be affected by prices increases due to a minimum wage hike. The second main argument against a minimum wage increase is that it leads to a higher unemployment rate for the poorest Americans. The thought here is that businesses would either automate various functions (like Burger King moving the soda fountain from behind the counter to self-service in front of the counter) or simply get by with fewer employees because the cost of labor gets too high. So who is right here? Does a higher minimum wage help or hurt the less fortunate and is it good for the economy as a whole? There have been hundreds of studies done on this topic and each side to this issue can point to conclusions that support their point of view. I have reviewed many of these studies and it seems like the answer to this question depends on one primary factor the affluence of the area in question. First, in richer areas like New York City or San Francisco, it appears that minimum wage increases do help the poor. In these areas, businesses can easily raise prices to make up for higher labor costs and the consumer of their goods are not the less affluent people anyway who tend not to live in these areas and instead commute to their jobs. The risk of higher unemployment is less because consumers in affluent areas would rather pay a slightly higher price for their morning cup of coffee rather than wait an extra 10 minutes to be served because their are fewer baristas working that day. However, in rural or less affluent areas, minimum wage increase may actually hurt rather than help. In these areas, price increases are not an option as demand for products is relatively inelastic. Many businesses would be forced to cut the number of employees or simply shut down. And those businesses that are forced to raises their prices will end up selling less. Of course, those employees who directly benefit from a higher minimum wage will have more money to spend on goods and services but this will not make up for the huge added expense many small businesses will have to absorb. So, as with most government programs, there will definitely be winners and losers as more and more minimum wage increases go into effect. The losers will be the wealthier consumers across the country, business owners, and those low income employees who get laid off in poorer areas of the country. The winners will be almost all low income employees who work in more affluent areas and those who remain employed in low income areas. Oh, and the politicians and media (like me) who will have plenty to talk about in the years ahead as this experiment continues.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Defining TermsDont let financial terms and jargon confuse you. Learn a few at a time or refresh your memory with the mini-glossary below. Aggressive growth fund: a mutual fund aiming to grow investors money rapidly by focusing on stocks of fast-growing smaller companies or narrow market segments, such as biotechnology, cloud computing or 3-D printing. Asset classes: Three key classes are cash, bonds and stocks. Basis point: This typically refers to changes in interest rates. One basis point is 1/100 of a percent (0.01 percent). Capital gain/loss: the difference between the price at which an asset is sold and its original purchase price. Commodities: goods that are generally the same regardless of producer, such as crude oil, soybeans, silver, coffee and pork bellies. Cost basis: the original price paid for an investment (including commissions). Derivative: a financial contract whose value is determined by (or derived from) the value of another security, such as stocks, bonds, commodities or a market index (such as the S&P 500). Common types of derivatives are options, futures and mortgage-backed securities. Free cash flow: the cash thats left over after everything salaries, taxes, advertising costs, raw materials, equipment, utility bills and so on is accounted for. In theory, its the amount of money a business could issue to shareholders as dividends. Gross Domestic Product (GDP): the value of all goods produced and services provided within a countrys borders. In the United States, GDP is determined quarterly by the Department of Commerce. No-load fund: a mutual fund that does not charge a sales commission. Securities: Refers to ownership stakes in stocks, bonds or other kinds of financial assets, or rights to ownership, such as through options. Securities generally have some value. Tender offer: This occurs when an entity offers to buy shares of a company from shareholders. To make the offer tempting, its usually for more than the going rate.Learn more at investopedia.com/dictionary, or fool.com/school/Glossary/ Glossary.htm. Tech Advantage Is Not EnoughMy dumbest investment, many years ago, was in Iridium, which successfully launched dozens of satellites into orbit in order to create a mobile telephone network. Their technology seemed good, as did their launch success rate. But they were carrying a multibillion-dollar debt load and didnt have sufficient revenue coming in with which to stay afloat. I learned that lots of debt and little revenue will overwhelm any technological advantage. Tom, Clinton, WashingtonThe Fool Responds: Iridium, the brainchild of Motorola, did have compelling technology, but it also had many headwinds preventing it from becoming a great stock performer. It spent about $5 billion creating a phone network in space in the 1990s, but the phones that would use the network cost several thousand dollars apiece much more than most folks would consider spending. The first call was made with Iridium technology in 1998, but within a year, the company had filed for bankruptcy protection. About a million customers had been needed in order for Iridium to break even, but it only signed up tens of thousands.Its easy to be swayed by impressive technology, but you need to also make sure a company is or will be successful in the market, serving lots of customers and generating profits. Its best to seek companies that are already successful and that have bright futures. Is Big Blue for You?International Business Machines (NYSE: IBM), or IBM, is more than 100 years old and has had to reinvent itself over the years. Its in the midst of another transformation, which has put pressure on its shares, with many investors taking a wait-and-see approach.In 2015, the companys revenue and earnings dropped, with management expecting a further earnings drop this year. However, there are some good reasons to buy into IBM. First, it appears undervalued, with its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio recently near 11, and its dividend recently yielded a hefty 3.5 percent. (It has doubled its dividend over the past five years, too, with more room for it to grow.) Net profit margins have trended up over the past few years and recently topped 16 percent, and IBM is generating more than $13 billion in free cash flow annually.Meanwhile, CEO Ginni Rometty has IBM cutting loose its low-margin hardware businesses to focus on more profitable services and software sales. Its Strategic Imperatives initiatives, featuring products for cloud computing, data analytics and user engagement, is now generating more than a third of IBMs revenue and recently posted 26 percent year-overyear growth on a constant-currency basis. IBM is not fully out of the woods yet, but it has a good plan, ample resources and management thats taking a long-term view. Its also rewarding patient believers with a generous dividend and share buybacks. I trace my roots back to the 1875 founding of the Continental Oil and Transportation Co., which began by moving kerosene to Utah. I soon built an oil pipeline in California, and then was taken over by Standard Oil in 1885. Part of me was owned by DuPont for a while. Today Im the worlds largest independent oil and gas exploration and production company based on production and proven reserves. Based in Houston and with operations in 21 countries, I rake in more than $30 billion annually. My ticker symbol might make some criminals nervous. Who am I? (Answer: ConocoPhillips) Prices in PerspectiveQWould you please explain how a $20 stock can be viewed as more expensive than a $100 stock? R.K., Lake City, FloridaAA stocks price alone is far less meaningful than you think. You need to compare it to other measures, such as sales, earnings or cash flow, in order to be able to draw conclusions. Imagine shares of two companies Alpha and Omega each trading for $36 per share. If Alphas earnings per share (EPS) for the past 12 months is $2 and Omegas is $3, then Alphas price-to-earnings ratio (representing price divided by EPS) is 18 while Omegas is 12. Youd have to pay $18 for each dollar of Alphas earnings, versus just $12 for Omegas. Already, Omega looks cheaper. To get a sense of a companys size, focus on its annual revenue or its market capitalization. Market cap is the current share price multiplied by the number of shares outstanding, reflecting the current total price tag the market is placing on a company. If Alpha sports 10 million shares and Omega has 1 billion, then Alphas market cap is $360 million and Omegas is $36 billion. Despite the same stock price, Omega is a much bigger company. When evaluating a company, look far beyond its price. Assess how rapidly its growing, how much cash and debt it has, what its competitive advantages and prospects are, and how undervalued or overvalued it appears to be. ***QIf I donate $50 to charity and my company matches that donation with another $50, can I claim a $100 deduction on my tax return?

The March reading is an 11-month high, though its still 3.9 points below its March 2015 peak, which was the highest reading in a decade.Of the five components that make up the index, four increased and one declined.Expectations of personal finances a year from now showed the greatest increase, from 99.4 to 105.5 (up 6.1 points month-to-month). However, perceptions of personal financial situations now compared with a year ago declined slightly, from 83.9 to 83.2. Opinions as to whether its a good time to buy a big-ticket item such as a car went up two-tenths of a point to 101.3. These two components reflecting current views about the economy have moved together over the past year without displaying any significant trend. These readings do not genuinely explain the observed change in the consumer sentiment index between February and March, says Hector Sandoval, director of the Economic Analysis Program at UFs Bureau of Economic and Business Research. Perceptions among Floridians about present economic conditions have remained quite stable during the past months, indicating, first, the certainty that Floridians have about the economy, and second, the overall positive economic conditions that have prevailed in the state.Both shortand long-run views of the U.S. economy increased slightly. Expectations of U.S. economic conditions over the next year rose 1 point to 88.3, while anticipated U.S. economic conditions over the next five years rose 1.2 points to 88.5.The increase in consumer sentiment was driven by Floridians 60 and older, whose perceptions about the current economic conditions and both shortand long-run expectations of the national economy are at their highest levels in the last year.

CONFIDENCEFrom page 9ever, is that over the past year, this segment of the population tends to display a higher variance in their perceptions, Mr. Sandoval adds. Economic data in Florida continue to be mostly positive, particularly in the labor market. The unemployment rate dropped again in February from 5.1 to 4.9 percent. This decline has been steady over the years since the peak in 2009-2010, after the Great Recession. Of particular note, the Florida unemployment rate has finally matched the U.S. unemployment rate at 4.9 percent.Compared with February 2015, the number of jobs added statewide was 243,200, a 3 percent increase. The sector gaining the most jobs was professional and business services, followed by leisure and hospitality, transportation and utilities, and education and health services.The positive trends in the labor market combined with the optimistic expectations about the U.S. economy will surely have a positive effect on Floridas economy in the coming months, Mr. Sandoval says.

Putnam. 320 pages. Hardcover, $28. Readers recalling my early December review of Stuart Woods Foreign Affairs might wonder why Im commenting so soon on another installation in the Stone Barrington series. I exercised some self-control by not reviewing Mr. Woods Scandalous Behavior in January, but these novels are just so much fun, I cant skip this newest offering. Family Jewels opens with Stone channeling Bogie and Bacall when his secretary Joan introduces him to the tall and slim Carrie Fiske, she of low-pitched voice and big money pedigree. She who had the moxie not to make an appointment. She whose ex-husband is stalking her and wishes to enlarge their settlement agreement. Its not clear how much trouble Carrie is in or what Stone can do to help her, but they decide he will provide a new will for her immediately so that her ex, the beneficiary of her present will, doesnt inherit at her death and that he has less motive for murder. Stone also assigns his associate, Fred Flicker, to protect Carrie. Soon enough, the ex Harvey Biggers shows up, and Fred gets rid of him the old fashioned way, cracking his nose with a head butt. Then Harvey appears at Stones office, trying to hire him and insisting that its Carrie who wants to kill him, not the other way around. Visiting his new client at her ritzy East Hampton home, Stone meets her friends Nicky and Vanessa Chalmers and Derek and Alicia Bedford. Its all high-society and money talk, some of it focusing on Dereks business of buying and selling jewelry. He plans to help Carrie turn some of her huge collection of jewelry into cash. When a bad smell leads to a dead body at the residence where Carries friends are staying, Stone connects with his buddy Dino, the NYC police commissioner, and gets that investigation under way. Soon hes also lawyering for Jim Carlton, a movie director who owns the house. Carrie then disappears for a while, leaving Stone in charge of Bob, her friendly dog. He soon finds out the murdered girl was a prostitute who was with Harvey at a New Years Eve party at Jims house. While the authors buildup of characters and creepiness is effective, the novel goes into high gear when the history of a certain rare jewelry item and the chase to obtain it takes over. This thread takes us on a fascinating journey back to Holocaust history, as a key and rarified piece of jewelry that once decorated Herman Goerings wife had, over the decades, made its way into Carries overabundant collection. As the saying goes, you could die for it. The main thread continues with Stone enjoying a high-energy affair with a young woman named Gala, who is on the staff of Stones good friend the (female) president of the United States. But back to business. Carrie is found beaten and strangled to death in a small New Mexico town. Since Harvey is known to be in the area, an all points bulletin is issued to apprehend him. The liquidation of Carries estate its many homes and long list of expensive furnishings, artwork and jewelry is in Stones hands as executor, and there are many vying for a place in line to make offers. Could it be that Carries murderer did the dirty deed to create just this situation? An opportunity to purchase (or steal, should the occasion arise) items he or she prized? The murder and the goodies coming on the auction block excite the media, and Carries friends seem helpful enough in assisting Stones efforts to locate and offer preliminary values for various items. Watching Stone Barrington solve the mystery of Carries death is only half the fun of turning the pages. The other half is the sheer spectacle of wealth, social status, aspiration and influence. Mr. Woods knows how to portray the beautiful people, their manners and mores, their fluid and sparkling conversation, their easy expectations and all the glitter that surrounds and defines them. A master of dialogue, action and atmosphere, the Key West resident has added one more jewel of a thriller-mystery to his ever-growing collection. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. h f a m a p philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com WOODS

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 7-13, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYThe man in white pulls a chair into the empty studio. Sitting in front of the oversized blank canvas thats maybe twice his height, he stares for a while, arms crossed in front of him. And then Marcus Jansen stands up and starts to paint. Marcus Jansen: Examine and Report has its world premiere on opening night of the sixth annual Fort Myers Film Festival, Thursday, April 7, at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall. The documentary looks at the work and influences of the internationally known painter who lives in Fort Myers. Initially, Mr. Jansen was looking for a three-minute film to accompany his solo exhibition that will tour Italy, Germany, Austria, New York and Florida and to promote his book, Decade, which will be released in the fall. What he got was a film that clocks in at just over 54 minutes, filmed and edited by John Scoular of Naples. It kinda snowballed, Mr. Scoular says. After he realized the film would be more than a short promo, I was first going for 26 minutes, he says. But the film grew as he interviewed more and more people: art collectors from Germany who collect Mr. Jansens work; Mr. Jansens father; art historian Brooke McGowan, whos written about Mr. Jansens work; London art dealer Steve Lazarides, who was grafffiti artists Banksys first agent; Noah Becker, artist and founder of Whitehot magazine; and numerous Southwest Floridians as well: Lawrence Voytek, the former director of art production for Robert Rauschenberg, and John Loscuito, director of art galleries at Florida Gulf Coast University, among them. Mr. Scoular traveled to Miami, London and New York City to interview people. He even interviewed artists who sell their work in lower Manhattan, where Mr. Jansen got his start, selling his artwork on the sidewalk. The title, Examine and Report, seemed like the obvious thing to call the film, the filmmaker says, because Mr. Jansen is examining the world. He paints the world in general, and how corporations are pretty much running governments. Stuff like that bugs him He puts it in his work. Hes examining the world and reporting on it. And Im examining the art world (with this film) and reporting on it. And all these people in the film are examining Marcus and reporting on him.Up for interpretation Mr. Jansens paintings are large, almost surrealistic images that are as much dreamscapes as they are landscapes, tending toward the nightmarish. Some think they look apocalyptic. They do look very dreamlike, the artist says. Youre not sure if its now or then or in the future. When I look at them, it takes you to a familiar place, but in a different way I work very much from the subconscious realm. Theres nothing that I would say intentionally. He wants viewers to study the paintings, spend time with them. But dont ask him to explain them. Its up to the viewer how to interpret them. Were painting in the first place because we dont want to use words, he says. The work itself is a language and a vocabulary. The idea is for people to react to it. The works can be seen in multiple directions. I like the ambiguity in the works. His style had been called Modern Urban Expressionism; you can see the influences of graffiti art, Abstract Expressionism and urban art in his work. Mr. Jansen, who grew up in the Bronx and Queens in the 0s and s, as well as in Germany, was strongly influenced by the graffiti art he saw around him. A meeting with graffiti artist West One, the tag name for West Rubenstein, who is also interviewed in the film, influenced him greatly. He was the first graffiti artist I was introduced to, he says. I thought it was so cool at the time. I was so impressed. It sparked me to the idea of getting into art. I wasnt thinking about it so much before. Seeing Mr. Rauschenbergs art during the same time, when he was 14, pushed him in the same direction, he says. Whether graffiti art, the German Expressionist movement, the Abstract Expressionist movement, I saw a connection with all, he says. In some ways, maybe I was trying to create a dialogue that would bridge all three. And I was a product of all of them. John Joseph Richardson knows the horror of being falsely accused. The African-American orange picker was wrongfully convicted of murdering his seven children in 1967 in DeSoto County just north of Lee County. He spent 21 years in prison before being exonerated. Time Simply Passes, a documentary film by Ty Flowers, tells his story, one of racism and our legal system gone wrong. Mr. Richardson was a migrant worker; he and his wife picked tangerines and oranges in the citrus fields around Arcadia. But one day almost 50 years ago, while they were under the care of the woman next door, his seven children all died after eating poisoned grits. The incident received national attention, and Mr. Richardson was soon arrested for the deaths. Insecticide was suspected, but none was found until the day after, in a nearby shed. The sheriff had searched that shed twice the day before and found nothing, however; the insecticide, Parathion (now banned from use), suddenly appeared the following day. As Time Simply Passes, its pointed out that there were 12 white jurors and a white judge. Cellmates testified that Mr. Richardson had confessed to the crime, but they received time off from their own sentences for doing so. The jury deliberated for only two hours before finding him guilty. Mr. Richardson was on death row before the law changed his sentence to life in prison. He was denied parole at least 10 times, because he didnt show remorse. But how can an innocent person show remorse for something he didnt do? The prosecutors logic was fuzzy, at one point claiming that Mr. Richardson must have been guilty because he was not there when the crime was committed. It was claimed that he murdered his own children to receive their life insurance, yet he had not taken out insurance on them. Decades later, in 1988, it was discovered that the states attorney at the time had deliberately withheld vital evidence from the defense. The documentary says the state manipulated the evidence and the facts to frame the living. After serving 21 years for a crime he did not commit (and to which another person confessed), Mr. Richardson was exonerated and released from prison. Once again, the case drew national attention. Mr. Richardson, who called himself the wrongedest man in the world, appeared on TV on Inside Edition and Geraldo. There was talk of a book deal and a movie deal, but nothing came of it. Mr. Richardson didnt have the means to pay rent or to buy groceries or clothing. He had to struggle for at least two more decades before receiving any kind of financial compensation from the state. Time Simply Passes is a chilling documentary about racism, the old Florida and how our judicial system can be manipulated to ruin innocent lives.

Ms. Ngqungwanas memoir, Odyssey of an African Opera Singer: From Zwide Township to the World Stage, chronicles his journey of overcoming numerous obstacles in order to sustain a world-class opera career. In it he explains: How did a baby, born in 1984 in South Africa the worlds most complicated system of segregation and apartheid find his way to the great opera stages of Europe and the United States? How did a child, raised in poverty by his grandmother in Zwide Township, attain academic degrees in both South Africa and the United States? What does it take for one boy or any child to overcome the debilitating effects of discrimination and impoverishment? He outlines how he discovered classical music and opera, and how his perseverance and determination led him to the prestigious Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia, leading to winning the 2013 Grand Finals of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. Mr. Ngqungwanas engagements now take him to opera houses all over the country including the Washington National Opera at the Kennedy Center, Los Angeles Opera, Glimmerglass Opera, Dallas Opera and Palm Beach Opera, among others. His shared experience will rekindle hope that children all children, no matter what their circumstance of birth can be given the opportunity to claim their gifts, develop them and use them to enrich the lives of others.About The Elixir of LoveGulfshore Opera presents the comedic opera Lelisir damore (Elixir of Love) in Punta Gorda on Friday, April 15, and at ArtisNaples on Thursday, April 21.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 7-13, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYDont drink the water (but do see this new version of an Ibsen classic)What do you do when the waters not safe to drink? The people of Flint, Mich., are struggling with this. The water in Rio De Janeiro is so bad that athletes worry how it might affect the Summer Olympics. And then theres the more local concern of runoff from Lake Okeechobee thats affecting marine life in the coastal waters of Southwest Florida. We poison our water and it, in turn, poisons us. Henrik Ibsens An Enemy of the People grapples with this very topic. Though written in 1882 and set in a small Norwegian coastal town, it is highly relevant. The towns main form of income is its spa; people flock to its baths for their healing qualities. But Dr. Thomas Stockmann (Jeffrey Binder) discovers the waters are actually harming people. Noticing a high number of typhoid cases and people with gastric troubles, he has the water tested, only to discover its dangerous to drink or even wash in. In order to save money, the town originally built the pipes too low, and now the water is contaminated with runoff from the tannery. The baths will have to be shut down and the pipes re-routed. Dr. Stockmann, thinking only of the health of the people, believes hell be welcomed as a hero for presenting this news. But when he tells his brother, Peter (David Whalen), the mayor of the town, the reaction is just the opposite. Shutting down the baths will ruin the town financially. It will take too long and cost too much to put in new piping. Those in power, who profit from the baths, do not want to lose their cash cow. If they have to shut down the baths and re-route all the pipes, theyll raise taxes to make the townspeople pay for it all. The townspeople, already struggling, do not want higher taxes. Yet, if nobody does anything to fix the problem, more and more people will be harmed. And if word gets out about the hazardous water, people will stop flocking to the baths, and the town will lose its main source of income. Dr. Stockmann, instead of being hailed as a hero, is declared an enemy of the people. His wife, Catherine (Jessica Wortham), stands by his side. She has a sunny disposition, but sh ows a steely backbone when necessary. Their daughter, Petra (Lindsey Kyler, perfect in the role of an idealistic schoolteacher), also backs him. But everyone else turns against him. This is also a play about a more intimate conflict, too: two clashing brothers, as unalike as two brothers can be. The doctor is flighty and idealistic, while the mayor is pragmatic and cold. Mr. Whalen gives a chilling performance as a man ruled by greed. He is dour, highly regimented and stoic. He sees the world in black and white. Mr. Binders performance, though, is a little over the top. Although you know his character is right about the water, its difficult to cheer for him, because he appears so unhinged from the very beginning. Hes all fidgets and twitches and tics, constantly checking his pockets for his glasses until he finds them on top of his head. Hes manic and frenzied. The tone of his performance is so different from the others, its almost as if hes playing a comedy instead of a drama (the six doors of the set by Charles Murdock Lucas) add to the feeling that were watching a farce). I wish director Kristen Coury had gotten a more subdued performance from Mr. Binder, one that showed his internal struggle. It would have been more striking to see a principled man slowly f all apart. That said, the doctors speech to the crowd about the importance of one person standing alone and staying true to ones convictions is a highlight of the play. Larry Paulsen delivers an outstanding performance as Aslaksen, the printer at the local newspaper. His picture could be next to the word obsequious in the dictionary. Although he talks of overthrowing the local government, when he comes face to face with the mayor he literally bows, calling him Your Worship. He is so disagreeable, so oily and slimy, you almost expect to see him leave a trail behind him, like a slug. Mr. Lucas has created a very Norwegian, very wooden set, all rectangles and squares, with countless right angles. Its minimalist, working for a variety of settings (the Stockmanns home, the newspaper, another characters home), but it seems strange that there is no world depicted outside its many windows, just white blankness. Lauren Gaston has clothed the characters in dark colors and earth tones; the Mayor sports a cape and is never without his black top hat and walking cane. This production is a new version of the classic play, written by Rebecca Lenkiewicz and with a literal translation by Charlotte Barslund. It feels streamlined, as the action moves quickly sometimes, too quickly, as some characters change their minds so suddenly, youre not sure of their motivation. This is a play about standing up for the truth even when everyone else is against you, how the rich continue to make money from the poor and how truth can be ignored and manipulated for ones own means. Though more than a century old, many of the phrases and sentiments eerily echo current political debates. For example, when someone speaks the truth and provides scientific evidence, theyre mocked as monkey tricks. Another timely statement: Interruption is not debate, sir. And then theres a characters comment that shouting doesnt make you right. You might find this play encouraging, an exhortation to follow your own convictions. You may find it discouraging to realize that nearly 135 years later were still dealing with the same environmental, political and social problems. But one thing is certain: We cannot poison our environment without poisoning ourselves. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com An Enemy of the People>> Who: Gulfshore Playhouse >> Where: The Norris Center, Naples >> When: Through April 17 >> Cost: Tickets start at $49 >> Info: 261-7529 or gulfshoreplayhouse.org CHARLES MURDOCK LUCAS / COURTESY PHOTOChristopher Kelly, Timothy Smith, David Whelan, Jeffrey Binder, Larry Paulsen, Lindsey Kyler, Jessica Wortham and John Corey in a scene from An Enemy of the People by Gulfshore Playhouse, playing at The Norris Center in Naples.

But on occasion, luck in the form of being in the right place at the right time can play an important role. Heres a good example of how the luck factor works. Bob Hamman, one of the world's best, was playing in the 1983 Life Master Pairs, and on the first of two deals opened the bidding with two notrump. The next player doubled, everybody passed, and although the defenders could have taken the first six tricks with a different opening lead, Hamman wound up making nine tricks for a score of 890 points. On the second deal, the one shown, Hamman held the South hand and got to four hearts doubled. Offhand, it might seem that West doubled once or twice too often, but be that as it may, he exercised his constitutional right to free speech and followed this by leading the jack of spades. It did not take Hamman long to teach West a lesson. He won the jack with dummys king, cashed the A-K of trumps and A-Q of spades, discarding two diamonds from dummy, and then led the five of diamonds toward dummys singleton nine. West compounded his previous felonies by following low, and the o utcome w as that Hamman made the doubled contract with three overtricks to score another 890 points! One important principle that emerges is that if your opponents are trying for a slam (which is what Hammans fourdiamond bid suggested), its poor policy to double them when they stop at a mere game.

NoCity Of Gold opens with a familiar moment for all writers: The author sits at his computer and stares off into space, a blank screen glaring back at him. Words will come eventually, he knows. He just doesnt know when. Or how coherent theyll be. The writer is Pulitzer Prizewinning food critic Jonathan Gold, and given that he writes roughly 150,000 words a year, no doubt his muse will strike soon. What isnt clear, however, is why director Laura Gabbert views Mr. Gold as interesting enough to be the subject of a documentary. His accomplishments are plentiful, but that doesnt mean he has a personality compelling enough to be worth following for 90 minutes. The doc is a scattershot look at Mr. Golds life and career, assembled with no semblance of order. This is the kind of movie that usually ends up as a two-hour special on The Food Network, not the art house big screen. Mr. Gold has been a food critic in Los Angeles since the early 1980s and currently writes for the Los Angeles Times. He finds joy in writing about food as a cultural reflection of the city and is just as at home at a food truck as he is at a remote Korean, Ethiopian or southern Thai restaurant where the food is so spicy itll make smoke come out of your ears. Quite literally, hell eat anything. Ms. Gabbert adds to her subjects deification by interviewing noted writers, chefs and culinary bigwigs such as chefs David Chang and Roy Choi, authors David Sax and Allen Salkin and TV personality Andrew Zimmern. Notably, theres nary a word from those who dont care much for Mr. Golds work or opinions. Whats more, theres no recollection of any of his negative reviews; he refers to one unnamed restaurant as disgusting as he drives by, but thats it. Im certainly not calling for Ms. Gabbert to slap a restaurant Mr. Gold has already panned, but all critics have critics, and providing a bit more balance to the narrative would have added needed perspective. Instead all we get is adoration for Mr. Gold, which feels terribly biased and hinders the films credibility. Theres also personal and tedious background information about things such as Mr. Golds cultured upbringing, his love of music and his accomplishments as a cello player, time with his wife Laurie and kids and his editors frustration at him for not meeting deadlines. All of this detracts from the more intriguing storyline that Ms. Gabbert touches upon but doesnt do justice to: how the evolution of Los Angeles as a city can be defined by its food, and how the different sections of the city have their unique culinary personalities. More on this how and why it manifested as well as Mr. Golds role in defining it would have kept the film more interesting throughout. When the last half hour ventures away from food to focus on Mr. Golds love of music, you know the story is thin. City Of Gold is a serviceable dish that lacks nuance. Its edible, but you wont really enjoy it, and you definitely wont come back for more. D s t w n r dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Jonathan Gold was the rst food critic to win the Pulitzer Prize, taking home the honor for Criticism in 2007.

It brought $1,755 at auction in Thomaston, Maine.Expensive fabrics were recycled for quilts, coats of many colors BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELFabrics were expensive in the 18th and early 19th centuries. Recycling was important and every scrap of fabric left from a sewing project was saved to make a quilt or even a coat of many colors. But not many thrifty housewives saved the cloth bands that held bundles of cigars to use for a sewing project. Someone made a cigar silks smoking jacket in the 1880s style. The cutaway jacket had hundreds of silk cigar bands, imprinted with a brand name, that were feather-stitched in black thread. The shawl collar, cuffs, pocket flaps and lining were made of black silk cloth. Brand names like Old Poet, Harvard, Boston Bar, Press Club, Bachelors and Flying Dude could be read by those admiring the jacket. It sold at a February 2016 Thomaston Place auction for $1,755. Q: What is a dog kennel dresser? A: The dog kennel dresser started as a type of Welsh cupboard. In Wales a large dresser that displayed and stored plates, pewter and utensils in racks was in style in the 18th century. The lower section was made of drawers and cupboards. These were kept below the stairs for storage in mansions, but in farmhouses, they were used in the living room. The dresser was a large, valuable piece of furniture. By the 1850s, a new look gained favor. The lower part of the dresser was made with cupboards on each side and an open space in the middle. The space probably got the name dog kennel because a dog could crawl in to sleep. Often, a large tureen or pot was stored in the space. By the 1890s, it was sometimes used to store a sewing machine. The Welsh dresser is still popular, and copies have been made since 1915 that could be mistaken for antiques. Q: I inherited some original Coca-Cola glasses that came from a drugstore I went to as a child. I have 15 small glasses. Only five still have the etchings intact, which read Drink Coca-Cola 5 cents. The writing has worn off the others. I also have seven of the larger glasses, but they never had any writing on them. I just want to know if they have any value besides the warm memories they hold. A: Vintage Coca-Cola glasses sell for about $4 each in excellent condition, including all of the writing. There also are many reproductions available today for about $2, even some of the earlier type glass that came in a metal holder with a handle. Enjoy your glasses and childhood memories. That is why many collectibles are saved. Q: Were Hummel figurines ever made in Japan? I thought they were all made in Germany by the Goebel factory. A: Hummel figurines, based on the drawings of Berta Hummel, were first made in 1935 by the W. Goebel Porcelain factory in Germany. They became very popular and were a major collectible for many years. When World War II ended, exported merchandise had to be marked Occupied Japan. This was required from 1947 to 1952, when there still were American troops occupying Japan. Ceramics were a major Japanese export, and they copied many best-selling pieces made in Germany, England, the United States and other countries. Many copies of Hummel figurines were made and marked Occupied Japan. Prices for German Hummel figurines have dropped since 2008. But Japanese figurines were always less expensive and, because there are Occupied Japan collectors who want them, they have remained about the same price as before. Real Hummels were made by Goebel until 2008 when several other German factories got the rights to the Hummels. Q: I have a Pan American Airways flight bag from a 1955 flight into Cuba, along with a tourist pass stamped 1955. I would like to know if its worth anything. And would an airline collector be interested in this? A: On Oct. 28, 1927, a small plane lifted off a dirt runway in Key West, Florida, and headed for Havana, Cuba. It was made by a fledgling company called Pan American Airways and was the first scheduled international flight of a U.S. airline. The airline was started by Juan Trippe along with other financiers as a mail carrier, having obtained the contract for U.S. mail delivery to Cuba. U.S. Diplomatic relations with Cuba were broken off in 1960, and commercial flights were suspended between the U.S. and Cuba after the 1962 missile crisis. Pan Am ceased operations completely in 1991, but Pan Am collectibles live on. Everything from Pan Am aircraft models, posters and timetables to safety cards, soap and air-sickness bags are sought after, as well as 35 different flight bags. Vintage canvas Pan Am flight bags sell to collectors for $35 to $50, depending on condition. Add the 1955 Cuban tourist pass, and the value increases to about $75.

RISING STARSFrom page 1Annual art show on tap at Goodlands historic Little BarAward-winning oil painter Tara ONeill invites the public to her 13th annual home-grown art extravaganza at the historic Little Bar Restaurant in Goodland from 1-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, April 16-17. Photographer Jim Freeman joins this years exhibition. Named 2015 Artist of the Year by the Marco Island Foundation for the Arts, Ms. ONeill enjoys thinking outside the gallery and does just that in organizing her event that doubles as a celebration of the end of a busy winter season. My work may be collected internationally, but I live locally, the devoted Goodland resident says. I owe a great deal to the unfailing encouragement, support and inspiration Ive received from this tiny village over many decades. Its a village she describes as a community living not just by the sea, but from it; a place of history and mystery, of juicy flowers and candy-colored cottages. The Bozicnik family, owners of the landmark waterfront Little Bar Restaurant for almost 40 years, continue their support of the arts in Goodland by opening their antique-rich dining rooms, breezy screened-porch, tree-canopied patio and brick-paved sculpture garden, to showcase Ms. ONeills paintings and Mr. Freemans pictures. Also a resident of Goodland, Mr. Freeman is well known for his ability to capture the haunting beauty of the Ten Thousand Island region as well as the charm and color of everyday village life. Both artists are founding members of the Goodland Arts Alliance. For more information, call 642-0528 or email taraogallery@gmail.com. Near Jack Daniel Key by Jim Freeman Three Herons by Tara ONeill

Naples Players set to make a splash with The Dixie Swim Club SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYEnduring friendships are at the heart of The Dixie Swim Club, a Southern comedy presented by The Naples Players April 20-May 15 at the Sugden Community Theatre. The play by Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten and Jessie Jones follows five women who met on their college swim team and reconnect every year at a beachfront home in North Carolinas Outer Banks. Leaving husbands, jobs and kids behind, they come to laugh, reminisce and meddle in each others lives. With the charm of Steel Magnolias and the biting repartee of The Golden Girls, The Dixie Swim Club is a tribute to friendships that last a lifetime. John McKerrow directs the TNP cast that includes Genai Corban as Sheree, the hyper-organized and athletic group leader. A newcomer to Naples, Ms. Corban makes her local stage debut. Shes no stranger to the stage, however, having performed in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and London during her 30 years in the entertainment industry. Dolores Fetters, who by day works as administrative assistant for the community theater company, is Vernadette Simms, the self-deprecating one of the group whose life seems to constantly be followed by a dark cloud. Ms. Fetters last performed in the ensemble of The Foreigner in 2015 and was a featured player in The Women of Lockerbie. Carol Fox, a veteran of the local stage, is Lexie Richards, the beautiful Southern belle obsessed with her youth. Most recently Ms. Fox has appeared with TNP as Aunt Eller in Oklahoma, Mrs. Tottendale in The Dr owsy Chaperone and Clairee in Steel Magnolias. Ann Hoover is Dinah Grayson, the dry-humored, overachieving and often cynical lawyer of the ensemble. Ms. Hoover is welcomed back to the stage after performing as Mrs. Boyle in 2013s The Mousetrap and in 2012 as the acerbic Ouiser Boudreaux in Steel Magnolias. Susan West plays Jeri Neal McFeeley, the sweet-as-pie, sometimes nave former nun. This is Ms. Wests theatrical debut. She recently moved to the Naples area after working as a high school teacher in Arlington, Texas.

The novels protagonist, Jesse L owe, has run away with her fathers best friend, Corbin Tillis. Jesses father died when she was 5 and now 16, she longs to discover more about him. Corbin was just released from prison after serving a sentence on drug charges. He has reluctantly agreed to take Jesse on his travels around the state.Neither of them spoke as Corbin pulled onto the highway. The road passed with a gray unfurling of asphalt, mile after mile, the clouds low overhead and thick with moisture. In the weeds that stirred as the truck flew past, there were hawk feathers and old turtle shells, snakes curled just out of sight. They headed into the heart of the Everglades, the great swamp, what the Seminole called the pa ha oke, river of grass. Once, Jesses dad brought her there to fish in the canals beside the road. He baited her line with a wriggling night crawler, and Jesse hid her eyes when the sharp end of the hook sliced through the worm. Dont look away, Trawler said. Something scares you, you got to look it in the eye. Hear me? In the truck with Corbin, Jesse counted the mile markers as they passed. After 10 miles, she turned on the radio. Corbin glanced at her. Turn it off. Jesse fiddled with the dials. She hit the scan button and moved the frequency forward until she found a few notes of music that disappeared into static. At the next station, salsa. Then jazz. Then a long guitar riff that she rested on, cocking her head as she listened for something familiar in the notes. Corbin frowned. I said, Turn it off. Jesse waited for the music to spin down into vocals but before she could make out the song, Corbin reached over and pushed in the knob. F--you, Jesse whispered. Whats that? Corbin said. She looked away. Go on, Corbin said. Say it. She narrowed her eyes at him. F--you, she said in a clear voice. And because she enjoyed the feel of it, because she liked the taste of it in her mouth briny, raw, sharp as oyster shells she said it again. F--you. Corbin glared at her. He stared at the road, at Jesse, back at the road. Then he started to laugh. A trickle at first, like a dry cough in the back of his throat, but before long it started to build. He threw his head back against the headrest. Even though Jesse didnt know why he was laughing, she started to laugh too. She laughed until the corners of her eyes squeezed out hot tears. Each time one of them died down the other started up and then they were both off laughing again. Corbin slowed down and caught his breath. S---, Jesse. I mean He shook his head. S---. Jesse grinned. Corbin reached over and pushed the knob on the radio, and the cab filled with the sound of Bob Seger singing Against the Wind. Corbin drummed the rhythm on the steering wheel and crooned the lyrics in a voice that surprised Jesse with its warmth and richness. She joined in at the chorus, and the two of them leaned together as they sang. When the song ended, she turned down the volume and said, Tell me something about my dad. Corbin reached across Jesse and pulled a pack of cigarettes out of the glove compartment. Like what? Howd he get the money in the suitcase? The truck filled with the smell of a justlit smoke. He took something that didnt belong to him. You mean he stole it. Something like that. A fly blew in through Jesses window and rattled around the back windshield, buzzing over the sound of the road. Would my dad have gone to jail if he didnt die? Probably. For a long time? I think so. Longer than you? Look, Jesse, theres no way of knowing. The fly danced across Jesses arm before darting back outside the window. The wind whipped her hair into her mouth. She started to ask more, but Corbin was slowing the truck as they came on a trailer park set against the swamp.

CELEBRITY EXTRACampy nighttime soap returns BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: My favorite guilty pleasure is watching Devious Maids. Please tell me that it has been renewed! Kellie T., via emailA: I am happy to report that awesomely campy, sudsy nighttime soap which airs on Lifetime will indeed be back for a rip-roaring fourth season. After all, we need to know if Adrian (Tom Irwin) and Evelyn (Rebecca Wisocky) survived that horrible explosion, which killed baddie Sabastien (Gilles Marini) and mostly goodguy Michael (Brett Cullen), if Rosie (Dania Ramirez) will get Spence (Grant Show) back from the evil Peri (Mariana Klaveno), and what will happen with Zoila (Judy Reyes) and her baby Prepare to be tantalized by all of these revelations and many more when the show returns on June 6. And check back here often, as I am presently setting up interviews with some of the series stars, and Ill be sure to get the scoop on what will happen for season four. Q: I love the hilarious and talented Patrick Warburton, especially his new show, Crowded. What else can I see him on? Natalie F., via FacebookA: Patrick, who is known for his booming voice and deadpan humor, is a busy man these days. Aside from Crowded, he will lend his vocal talents to the Netflix animated series A Series of Unfortunate Events as Lemony Snicket. Warburton joins Neil Patrick Harris, Malina Weissman and Louis Hyne. As Im sure you know, Patrick is an old hand at voice acting, providing memorable voices for shows like Family Guy, Archer, The Cleveland Show, Kim Possible and many more, as well as too many video games to count. Q: With all of these superhero movies coming out, Id love to know if there are plans for a big-screen version of Wonder Woman. Its time for some girl power! Delia F., AtlantaA: Wonder Woman is coming to the silver screen, but not until June 23, 2017. The flick stars Gal Gadot as the titular character, and it will be an origin story illustrating the transformation of a young Princess Diana into the greatest female warrior of all time. Shell get training help along the way, from the likes of her mother, Queen Hippolyta (played by Connie Nielsen), and her two military aunts: General Antiope (Robin Wright) and Antiopes lieutenant, Menalippe (Lisa Loven Kongsli). Director Patty Jenkins defended the look of these Amazon warriors: I, as a woman, want Wonder Woman to be hot as hell, fight badass and look great at the same time the same way men want Superman to have huge pecs and an impractically big body. That makes them feel like the hero they want to be. And my hero, in my head, has really long legs. LIFETIME Judy Reyes

It was fun to shine a spotlight on the concoctions inspired by convenience food. Besides, we needed to be reminded of what exactly Jello had wrought on Americas epicurean landscape. However, theres only so much amusement to be wrung out of lime Jello molds containing tuna fish and green olives, so weve decided to publish a retro recipe thats actually good. Its for Marzetti Kitchens classic Caviar Pie, an appetizer that at least partially redeems the awful-sounding offerings that were more typical of the day. Caviar Pie Printed with permission from Marzetti Kitchen 2 (2 oz.) jars Romanoff whitefish caviar 3/4 cup sweet onion, minced 6 hard boiled eggs 3 TBS mayonnaise 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 2/3 cup sour cream Spread onion on paper towel and drain about 30 minutes. Lightly butter bottom and sides of an 8-inch springform pan. Chop eggs and mix with mayonnaise. Spread in bottom of pan. Sprinkle with drained onion. Beat cream cheese and sour cream together until smooth. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto onion layers. Gently spread and smooth with back of spoon. Cover. Chill three hours or overnight. Just before serving, gently rinse caviar separately with cold water, drain in strainer and then on paper towel. Spoon onto cheese layer in decorative pattern. Garnish, if desired, with minced scallions.Take note: The Continental made The Daily Meals 101 Best Restaurants in America 2016. Sliding in at No. 101 (with Uchi in Austin, Texas, taking No. 100, you know the competition was steeeep), the Naples establishment was lauded by the websites editors for its varied beef menu and unexpected accompaniments (wax beans with prosciutto butter and almonds, for example, and duck and foie gras poutine). It is an honor to be included in such a prestigious list of restaurants and chefs, especially when its compiled by someone with the credentials of (editorial director) Colman Andrews, Continental owner Richard DAmico said. Read the full listing at thedailymeal.com. The Continental is at 1205 Third St. S. To make a reservation, call 659-0007 or visit continentalnaples.com.

My plate arrived stacked high with Portobello mushrooms, zucchini, eggplant and yellow squash on a bed of quinoa, all dressed with smoked tomato vinaigrette. It was tasty, light and not very demanding. One More Thing: I did try a hunk of the Korean pork belly, which was served on a spear with yuzu mayo and a mandarin orange.

Then try his second concept: Bar Tulia, a gastropub next door. Dine on small plates, pizzas, house-made sausage and other items that appeal to the creative chef in a rustic yet hip atmosphere thats clearly gained a following. Even the drinks are creative, like the Pigalle (a refreshing blend of St. Germain elderflower liqueur, prosecco, soda and lemon) and a Hurricane (three kinds of rum, passion fruit, bitters, grenadine and lime). Graze your way through the menu as we did: a generous plate of fresh ceviche; grilled octopus on greens and fingerling potatoes; a perfectly rendered pizza with house-made mozzarella and tomato sauce with fresh basil; grilled house sausage atop stewed white beans; deviled eggs with smoked trout roe; and a full-sized entre of salmon with roasted carrots and beets. For dessert, try the Sicilian waffle with caramelized bananas and maple bourbon almond truffle. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2015 Benja Thai, 6438 Naples Blvd., Naples; 591-1122 From the creators of Thai Udon Cafe comes a second little charmer, this one tucked between CenturyLink and Chick-Fil-A near the Hollywood 20 movie theaters. Like its older sibling, Benja offers well-executed Japanese and Thai dishes but also has a spacious sushi bar. From the sushi menu, a standout was the blue crab roll made with authentic flaky crab rather than surimi, spicy mayo, tempura flake, cucumber and tobiko. The yellow dragon roll (crunchy tempura shrimp, asparagus and avocado topped with raw salmon) was also first-rate. Skip the strongtasting hamachikama (grilled yellowtail cheek) and try the curry-laced crab Rangoon instead. The chicken volcano could have used a more vibrant sauce, but the pumpkin curry with shrimp was zesty and full of calabaza and shellfish. Service was attentive throughout the meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2014 Figs Grille, 25987 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 390-1700 Four years after a memorable debut, Figs still upholds a high level of quality in food and service undoubtedly thanks to the impeccable standards of chefowner Sam Tadros. Time has taken no toll either on the plush dining room, with its beautiful wall tapestries, Moroccanstyle lamps and rich palette of garnet and gold. Those whove only experienced calamari battered and fried may find Figs grilled version a happy revelation: Long, tender tubes of squid are charred just enough to appeal to the eye and the taste buds, then marinated in olive oil, garlic and fresh herbs. Fried shrimp are lightly breaded and garnished with delicious figs, mandarin orange-red onion relish and soy ginger glaze. Fig chutney and port wine sauce give roasted duck a fruity flourish. A lightly sweet anisettetinged beurre blanc proved a heavenly pairing for miso-marinated black cod, served with unexpected sides of spinach sauted with tomatoes and white beans and a crusty Parmesan-angel hair pasta cake. Desserts are made in house and worth the calories. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2015 7th Avenue Social, 849 Seventh Ave. S., Naples; 231-4553 A lot of Naples restaurants offer 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. The menu features innovative cocktails, house-made pickles, conch sliders, smoked fish mac and cheese, chicken and waffles, pineapple upside down cake and a host of other goodies conjured up by Executive Chef David Lani, a Culinary Institute of America alum. Stop in for drinks and relax in the eclectic 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 and 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 Bernaise sauce. Sunday brunch and late-night menus available, too. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2015 Fernandez the Bull-Midtown, 3375 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 6539097 Local lovers of Cuban food have twice as much to thank the Fernandez family for now that theres a second Fernandez the Bull to patronize. For 25-plus years, the first one has existed in various locations. Now a chic-looking sibling on Pine Ridge Road offers indoor and outdoor seating, a full bar and a terrific staff. Start with a wellchilled and minty guava mojito. Savor some beef empanadas (one dish of eight serves two or more) or crisp fried calamari, then move on to an entre like the chicken with mojo and garlic sauce or shrimp and mussels in white wine and tomato sauce. Sides of moros (rice and black beans), fried yucca or fried plantains are all great choices. And dont skip dessert. We loved the guava mango mousse cheesecake. Full bar.

It is a perfect match for the uniformly cheerful and accommodating service staff at this popular breakfast and lunch spot, where the dress is casual but good food and customer service are taken very seriously. There are quite a few benches outside for waiting, which we had to do for about 20 minutes when we arrived on a recent Sunday. Some were in the shade, others afforded a short sunbath. Potential customers availed themselves of every seat, chatting with strangers and enjoying the kids who skittered among them. When our turn came, the hostess asked us: Breakfast or lunch? We hadnt decided, so she happily provided us with the menus for both. One of the first things I noticed was that there wasnt a two-top in the place. None of those squishy little micro-tables that barely hold a glass and a plate. Even the counter at the back of the dining room is expansive, with elbowroom between the stools. Tables are well spaced instead of tucked so close together that you feel like sardines, a practice thats long been the custom in larger cities and is creeping into this area, too. Trail Caf was closed for a while for some redecoration. It now boasts a lovely laminate floor, nicely appointed bathrooms and an attractive stone wall along the back of the dining room. Our server told us the kitchen got a facelift, too. Big windows with wooden blinds allow lots of light into the room. Atop the windows are shelves adorned with bottles and candles and other homey knickknacks that lend a comfortable ambience. The menu is voluminous. First, you must choose between breakfast and lunch, and then there are still plenty of choices. Omelet or burrito? Breakfast sandwich or French toast? Salad or wrap? Burger or Moms meatloaf? It took us a while to decide, but at least three servers stopped by to pour coffee and water and check to see if we were ready to order. That was nice, because the place was busy and sometimes when you tell the server you need more time he or she vanishes and you miss your turn. That didnt happen here. We sipped the hot, strong coffee and didnt have long to wait for our dishes to arrive. I tried a lox and cream cheese omelet ($11.99). It comes with lots of smoked salmon the hot variety, which I prefer to the cold-cured lox with tomatoes, capers and red onion. You can get it with cream cheese in the omelet but I asked for mine on the side with the bagel that accompanied it. Our server assured me I could have some in both places, but cream cheese in the eggs didnt appeal to me. It arrived just as Id ordered it. The eggs were light and fluffy and filled with goodies. In fact, Id have preferred fewer capers as they made it saltier than I like, but I picked some out and the rest was fine. The bagel was firm, properly toasted and just right with cream cheese and a drizzle of honey. Also good were the golden, crispy hash browns that came on the side (other options are grits, home fries or fruit). My companion, who shuns eggs, was delighted with the Trail granola ($7.99), a generous bowl of rolled oats, sunflower seeds, raising, dried apricots, almonds and soy yogurt. He added bananas (50 cents) and could have piled on some brown sugar and other goodies if hed wanted to. It was as delicious as it was hearty and healthy. We shared an order of cherries Jubilee French toast ($10.99), two pieces of French toast topped with dark cherries, pecans and a b uttery brandy maple syrup sauce. It was sweet but not cloyingly so, and one slice each was plenty. Our servers made sure our coffee cups were kept full with hot, fresh java, and they made stops that were just frequent enough to ensure we had whatever we needed without being pesky. I saw them doing the same thing at every table around us. From the back of the house to the front, the team at Trail Caf has a clear vision of what its about. Its no wonder people make tracks to eat there.

High-rise residences with Gulf views selling quickly at Kalea BayResidential tower under constructionSince it was first announced, Kalea Bay, a gated, resortlifestyle community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, has set a new standard for luxury residential high-rise living. The incredibly-designed residences at Kalea Bay, combined with spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico, the Cocohatchee River and a pristine nature preserve, have propelled the community to become one of the hottest-selling properties in the past year. As of early April, 73 of the towers 120 luxury residences have been sold, stated Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing. Due to strong sales in the past month, our sales volume has now exceeded the $125 million mark. The 22-story tower will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. At the current time, construction crews are working on the towers 12th floor, which is helping buyers see the value of purchasing now. From my office in the sales center I can observe on a daily basis the construction progress, said Wilson. Its not only exciting for me, but also for those whove already purchased and even the visitors who have come to the sales center for the first time. Six floor plans are available at Kalea Bay with prices currently starting at $1.3 million. Residences 1 and 6 are 4-bedroom/4-bath plans with 3,755 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with three-bedrooms plus den and three-and-a-half baths, have 3,835 total square feet while residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/four-bath plans with 3,921 total square feet. All residents of Kalea Bay will revel in gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence, 9-foot 2-inch high ceilings and wood floors throughout. The custom kitchens have Wolf and Subzero appliances, a natural gas range, Downsview cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island. Our kitchens feature an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for todays hosts and hostesses, said Wilson. The layout of the kitchen can be experienced firsthand through a replica of one in our sales center. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve, stated Wilson. That means all of our residents have front row seats for our spectacular sunsets. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features. Wilson says dramatic views are available to every single resident, not matter which floor they live on. Thats because the towers amenities are located on the rooftop, explained Wilson. That includes our sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and the beaches. Those beaches include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally in 2015, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9. The first residential high-rise tower at Kalea Bay will be completed in the summer of next year. However, it wont be the only building on-site to reach that milestone. Currently, Kalea Bays community clubhouse area is also under construction and slated to be completed around the same timeframe. Our clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of Kalea Bay, said Wilson. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance and is currently under construction. The clubhouse will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Wilson. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Wilson. The indoor/outdoor restaurant will serve phenomenal meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. Nearby are 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to a designated Gulf beach. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site sales center. It is located on Vanderbilt Drive, just north of Wiggins Pass Road at 13910 Old Coast Road in North Naples. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com. Above: All master bedrooms offer views of the Gulf of Mexico.

Expanded tennis complex available to residents of Seaglass at Bonita BayAcknowledged as one of the ten healthiest clubs in America by Prevo Health Solutions, the Bonita Bay Club is continuing its Vision 2015 initiative with an expansion of its 18-court tennis complex. Vision 2015 has already resulted in the completion of a new 60,000 square foot Lifestyle Center that includes a nearly 20,000 square foot world-class Fitness Center and Fitness Caf, and a 9,000 square foot spa and salon. A rearrangement and slight expansion of the 18-court tennis complex was completed in December and included the addition of an exhibition court and two oversized courts. In 2016, the 10,000 square feet building that formerly housed the communitys fitness center and spa will be transformed into a tennis clubhouse with casual dining and an indoor/outdoor bar. The space will include a tennis pro shop, locker rooms, a stretching room, multi-function rooms, and a relaxing lobby area. Nano doors will open the entire space to the outdoors and the new exhibition court. Caf style seating will be available outside. With various membership opportunities, Bonita Bays award-winning lifestyle will be available to residents of The Ronto Groups 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high rise tower now under construction within Bonita Bay. Seaglass will feature fullycompleted, ready for occupancy residences with designer-selected premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available. With the combination of the buildings tower and penthouse floor plans and amenities that also include five championship golf courses, formal and informal dining venues, a full-service marina with access to the Gulf of Mexico, 12 miles of on-property hiking and biking trails, a new aquatic center scheduled to begin construction in summer 2017, and a residents only private beach park, Seaglass is redefining the luxury high-rise living experience. Recently named Private Facility of the Year by Tennis Industry Magazine, Bonita Bays tennis operations are overseen by Director of Tennis and USPTA Master Professional Paula Scheb and a staff that includes three certified tennis professionals. Scheb is the only Master Professional in Southwest Florida. The Master Professional designation is the highest accreditation given by the USPTA and is earned via coaching credentials, educational articles published, volunteer work, and speaking assignments. Less than 1% of the USPTAs more than 14,000 members have earned Master Professional status. About 750 members play tennis, so it is a popular sport within Bonita Bay, said Scheb. We are a member centric club. Everything we do is based on creating a better tennis experience for our members. We have new member orientations, ambassadors programs, weekly round robins to level, and 41 special events during the season. Some of the events are more competitive, some less. We can help new members find the right level and a group to play tennis with very quickly. Most importantly, the Bonita Bay Clubs tennis program has an unprecedented level of support from the board of directors and the general manager. Tennis is offered at levels from 2.5 to 4.5 for men and women who play recreationally and in competitive leagues. While each staff member brings their different personality to instruction, the instructional approach is foundationally the same and offers a level of consistency that is rare within club environments. Each instructor subscribes to a consistent, written approach to specific doubles strategy and stroke production. The overriding goal is to present a united teaching front that eliminates confusion and ensures that each member understands their specific goals. To track the progress of the instruction, written notes are taken and sent to each student. In addition, a member of the professional staff attends and watches each of the Clubs member home league matches and follows up with written notes to the captains of the 20 teams that participate during Winter Season. The courts at the Clubs tennis complex are modified hydrocourts, the latest in subsurface clay court technology. Ten of the courts are lighted, one of which is the only LED lighted court in Southwest Florida. Bonita Bay is the only club in Florida with the PlaySight system that provides a video and statistical analysis of play during matches. Available on four of the Clubs 18 courts, PlaySight tracks every shot and provides players with the same information touring professionals receive. Three luxurious Seaglass tower residence great room floor plans range from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet under air and are priced from just over $1 million.
