They said $3 million, Myra Janco Daniels, founder and first CEO of the Philharmonic Center for the Arts in Naples, recalled. I said, Thats good. I think Ill take that. They were just wide-eyed. Mrs. Daniels said this is the largest amount shes ever donated. Its also the largest gift WGCU has ever received. A station press release sent out last week said that, with the approval of the Florida Gulf Coast University board of trustees, WGCU will rename the building housing its TV and radio studios on the campus of FGCU the Myra Janco Daniels Public Media Center. The new name will be unveiled June 15.

Myers, Sarasota, Tarpon Springs and Pinellas Park | roger COMMENTARYClassical music by radioMy mother once rode 30 miles down the mountain on rough dirt roads in the back of a 1928 Dodge to play the first movement of Beethovens Moonlight Sonata to a recital audience 4,000 feet below her home on a cattle ranch in the Colorado Rockies. She was about 15. Since shes staying with us now deep in the subtropics, and we were listening to my 14-year-old son play the same timeless movement on our upright living-room piano last night, I began wondering: Why the hell cant you hear classical music anymore when you turn on the box in the corner? You know the device the radio, they call it, which first arrived courtesy of the Italian inventor, Guglielmo Marconi, just before the tsunamic turn of the 20th century. Radio may be vanishing now, but everybody still has one because everybody can. You can get them anywhere starting at about the cost of a Big Mac, fries and a shake from Los Angeles to Lake Worth. People who dont have computers or smart phones or late-model cars or Italian Prosecco in their wine coolers old people or poorish people and their children, for example still love radios. They give you voices, or popular music and jazz, or sporting events at the push of a button, day or night, in bed or out. But no longer around here do they give you classical music. For that you have to go to a computer, one with a sound system capable of expressing the music of 50 or a hundred humans playing together after practicing their entire lives to do so; or a cell phone connected to a specially designed system in or out of your latemodel car; or something called HD (high definition) radio, which you cant get just anywhere. When I called Target and WalMart superstores the other day, they didnt have them and the clerks had never heard of them. Best Buy has them, but not necessarily in stock; you can order one for about $45, they say. Of course, it wont work unless you wire it to an existing stereo system as an in-line component. So public radio has given up on people who might still use just radio and could benefit (whether they know it or not) from the chance to meet Beethoven from the chance to recognize a simple truth that connects us all: They arent the only ones ever struck by the exquisite lunacy of moonlight and love. Back in 1943, meanwhile, my thenteenage mother, who won the blue ribbon for her calf at the Freemont County Fair, was having a good year. Shed worked on the Beethoven for a long time, she recalls; it sounds easy but it has three voices you play with two hands, so not just any brickfingered pounder can make moonlight with it. And she probably understood the music. Beethoven wrote his sonata in the summer of 1801 when he was 31. Hed fallen deeply in unrequited love with his 17-yearold piano student, the Countess Giulietta Guicciardi. As you know if youve ever slung the backpack of your dreams over the shoulder of your suffering and plunged into the wilderness of the heart, there is nothing old or antiquated about such music or about moonlight, either one. Not unless you are old or antiquated yourself. When my mother completed the performance, she remembers, a stuffy old woman walked up to her and said, I thought your piece would NEVER end, Ellen Jean. Then she walked out. That woman and her profligate ilk may be the reason that many public radio stations have given up on classical music. It (she) doesnt pay them. Thats no small thing in a world where National Public Radio earns its keep from three revenue streams: donations, government grants and money paid in by affiliate (local and regional) stations such as WGCU on the southwest coast or WLRN in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties. Those stations raise money and buy shows from NPR. And sometimes they compete directly with NPR by making their own shows for lease or sale to other affiliates (New York Citys WNYC, for example). There are competing podcasts, too, of course shows digitized and made available online but not on the air. So competitors vie from many directions for the ears of listeners. Money is scarce and public radio has become increasingly commercial, nowadays unabashedly advertising companies that underwrite. Perhaps thats not a bad thing to start pandering to what people want so you dont have to live up literally to your tax-exempt nonprofit status. Should we give them grilled wild-caught salmon for a first course because it might make them healthier than ice cream, whether they want it or not? Naw, not worth it. In an irony of historic proportions, the woman who founded the Naples Philharmonic Center for the Arts (now Artis Naples) when that urbane community had little or no classical music has just given WGCU public television its largestever gift: $3 million for arts programming, which wont bring philharmonic performances back to the radio. On the other hand, thats not how Bill Siemering saw public radio when he helped found NPR and All Things Considered aired its first show. That was exactly 45 years ago this month, on May 3, 1971. National Public Radio will serve the individual, he wrote in the mission statement. It will promote personal growth ... It will celebrate the human experience as infinitely varied, rather than vacuous and banal. Mr. Siemering then concluded with this powerful sentence: (NPR) will not regard its audience as a market or in terms of its disposable income, but as curious, complex individuals who are looking for some understanding, meaning and joy in the human experience. Joy. Yes please, Ill have a big helping of that. Give me some Moonlight Sonata and love, if you will. And thank you.

I only know this because my millennial son advised me of it during a recent phone call. He also said the accompanying video on YouTube was not to be missed. I knew the group by name if only because news of the bands appearances in the U.S. bounced around our household previously. My son became a devoted fan. We, the parents, took his word for it. I knew this band was special; but, like a great many things that divide one generation from the other, I never got into their groove. However, Radiohead has done just fine without me, selling more than 30 million albums worldwide. So I clicked on YouTube to see what all the fuss was about. It was, in some respects, a harrowing journey. Jon Pareles of The New York Times summed up the groups artistic achievement perfectly in his review of the album. Of it, he wrote, The future is dire, the past a blur and the present heartbroken yet hinting at possibilities. Radiohead worries throughout the album about environmental devastation, about mass thoughtlessness, about love gone cold, about finding some way forward On this album, grim tidings arrive amid gorgeous backdrops. Multilayered tinklings and murmurings give the music a subliminally shimmering aura. But, he concludes, for the most part, A Moon Shaped Pool is an album of nightmare lullabies. No kidding, I thought to myself. I felt exactly the same but something more. The thought was inescapable: Through my generations wanton neglect of the planet and each other, it was we who first sang these dystopian lullabies to our babies in their cradles, children now grown into adulthood and for whom this music resonates deeply. From an elders point of view, A Moon Shaped Pool is a hard listen, an uncomfortable look deep into the eyes of the next generation. They peer back at us and our failures to leave this world for them in better shape than we found it. In this album, Radiohead touches a strong chord of pessimism in a massive, young audience. Taken as a whole, it is an anthem to failed optimism. If this seems a bit overwrought, perhaps it is. But our failed legacies will be the next generations burden to carry, assuming we fail to muster the will and the moral conscience to act now. Saving the planet is overwhelming. Maybe we should start right here, where we live, with saving the environment. Florida is barreling toward the Perfect Storm, its engines in full throttle, heading straight into a maelstrom of its own creation. Consider just the implications for potable water: Floridas population is increasing at the rate of a 1,000 people a day. Add 100 million-plus tourists arriving annually. Over the next 20 years, the state will need to invest more than $16 billion in infrastructure improvements and that still will leave a billion-gallon-a day fresh water shortfall, projected to hit the state by 2030. If that werent enough to make you thirsty, consider the major threats to Floridas springs, underground aquifers and freshwater resources from diminishing rainfall, over-pumping, pollution and salt water intrusion. As Radiohead might sing it, This is a low flying panic attack. People devoted to conservation and protection of the environment leave a big footprint when engagement of young people is inclusive to their mission. I think especially of John Marshall, who died earlier this year at 75. He founded the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation for the Everglades and the Florida Environmental Institute. He worked for decades with his surviving spouse, Nancy Marshall, to save the River of Grass and South Floridas wetlands, educating young people along the way and creating opportunities for them to become entrenched in the environmental causes he was passionate in pursuing. This is optimism incarnate and an antidote to Radioheads warning of the river running dry. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian whose professional career spans more than 25 years leading major philanthropic institutions in the South and Appalachia. She writes frequently on issues of politics, public policy and philanthropy, earning national recognition for her leadership in the charitable sector. She resides with her family and pugs in Jupiter. Read her past blog posts on Tumblr at smoke on e-cigarettesDown through all the millennia that mankind has smoked tobacco, no one would have believed (or even imagined) that a battery-powered contraption with no tobacco would one day be considered a tobacco product. Weve long had smokeless tobacco; now we have tobaccoless tobacco. This conceptual breakthrough is the work of federal bureaucrats who are bringing the regulatory hammer down on e-cigarettes in a misbegotten extension of the war on smoking. The Food and Drug Administration has issued new rules so onerous that they will likely suppress the manufacture of e-cigarettes and kill off small companies making them. Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell hailed the action as an important step in the fight for a tobacco-free generation never mind, of course, that e-cigarettes are tobacco-free. It is a strange country that is simultaneously moving to legalize marijuana and to crack down on vaping. But here we are. There is no doubt that cigarettes are a great cause of human misery; they kill almost 500,000 people a year in the U.S. This is why e-cigarettes, with their potential to diminish smoking, could be a boon to public health. They deliver nicotine without the truly harmful part of cigarettes, the tar and chemicals. The FDA is evidently operating on the basis of a regulators reverse Hippocratic oath: First, do harm to a burgeoning industry then hope to find some evidentiary justification for it at some later date. The new rules are crafted so that every vaping product currently on the market will have to go through an onerous FDA review process. Any new products will have to do the same. The American Vaping Association maintains that submitting an application will cost more than $1 million and take more than 1,700 hours. The regulatory burden will swamp small companies that lack the resources to pour into compliance costs. (The big tobacco companies, in contrast, will be fine.) The small firms have driven innovation in e-cigarettes. The products have gotten better, with more variety, since their introduction in 2007. Thats manifestly a good thing. The more satisfying e-cigarettes are, and the more they replicate the real smoking experience, the more likely it is that smokers will switch over, or at least use fewer cigarettes. The highly respected Royal College of Physicians in Britain gets the logic. It issued a report emphasizing the enormous promise of e-cigarettes, which it estimates are 5 percent as dangerous as the real thing. An authority who worked on the report explained to The New York Times that e-cigarettes have the potential to help half or more of all smokers get off cigarettes. Thats a huge health benefit, bigger than just about any medical intervention. The U.S. is rejecting that commonsense approach to harm reduction. It is against vaping no matter how safe it is or how many people it might coax into giving up smoking. The famous line attributed to Mark Twain is that nothing is as easy as quitting smoking hes done it thousands of times. Of course, Twain didnt have the option of vaping. If the FDA has anything to say about it, neither will anyone else.

ROOTED IN NAPLESThe local version of Whose Line Is It, Anyway? comes back to townNow that arts organizations are cooling off after entertaining snowbirds with high impact productions all winter, amateur performers are re-emerging with a whole bunch of new material. Show-offs. They know we like seeing what they can do, and regular Florida Weekly readers know that we are particularly partial to improvisational comedy. Its fast, inventive and frequently interactive, making it an unusual and fun way to spend an evening at the theater, which is why we are excited to announce that Stage 2 Improv returns to Sugden Community Theaters Tobye Studio Friday, May 20. Performances will be Friday and Saturday nights through June 18. Michael and Judith Santos founded the troupe in 2009 and have presented performances at the Sugden since 2012. With about a dozen members with varying degrees of experience, Stage 2 Improv takes audiences on a fast-paced, exhilarating and highly interactive trip along their synaptic highways with offthe-cuff scenes and situations that often result in hilarity. Of course, spontaneous theater requires an audience that buys into the ideals of improv, the most important being the a principal called, Yes, and Performers and spectators are required to leave their egos behind and accept whatever an actor presents and add to it, never denying or questioning its premise. While the resulting scenes are often funny or absurd, humor is beside the point when actors spark off each other to ignite their creativity. People dont realize that were not trying to be funny, were just trying to be real, Mr. Santos says. The funny happens naturally. But can improvisational principals be useful for anything besides entertainment? Absolutely! If youre looking for a guide to life, this one is as good as any. Yes, and can be implemented into everything, from writing, directing, auditioning even your regular job, Mr. Santos says. It can help you get a promotion or improve your project. A lot of our society today is negative, but if you think Yes, and you can get a lot farther along. Its a philosophy more than an improv trick. What a challenge. In life, we say no more often than yes because we only have so much energy. Perhaps attending an improv performance is a great way to see how affirmation opens up possibilities that are surprising and informative. But what if that guy on stage is pretending to be a chimp nitpicking a Power Ranger? Do I have to play along? Yes, its fun. Youll love it. I promise youll leave a better person. What can newbies expect to see at a Stage 2 Improv show? First, Friday nights have been designated Sports Night, and performers will compete in a variety of theater games. Example: In a game called Four Things, a player leaves the room with an audience member while the other players take audience suggestions for an action to mime. When the first player and audience member return, they have to guess what the others are trying to communicate without any words. If the action were playing baseball with a zucchini, it would have to be conveyed nonverbally, Mr. Santos says. Saturday nights are reserved for short-form scenes, usually limited to a handful of minutes, where actors riff off situations generated by the audience. Perhaps youll see Weird All Yancovic leading a dying man to the light. It could be a nice way to spend date night. Be mindful that Stage 2 Improv performances are popular and run only for five weeks. Tickets for $10-$20 can be purchased at The Naples Players box office, by calling 263-7990 or visiting The traffic on Lindsey Nesmiths synaptic highways is backed up and could use some Yes, and to get it moving again.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 19-25, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY 1.2I044,000313BY THE NUMBERS:andVE LOST A LOT OF CLOSE FRIENDS, SAID DERALD Robertson, recalling the early 1990s in Detroit. They got HIV and started to die of AIDS before he found out he was also HIV positive, not long after breaking up with his boyfriend at the time. He was 17 and doctors didnt expect him to live past 21. Seventeen years later, he has beaten the odds and lives in Coconut Creek with his husband, Lorenzo Robertson. Both are active in providing support for people with HIV and AIDS in South Florida, which has some of the highest rates of new infections in the country. The consequences of contracting the virus have changed dramatically since the deadliest days of the epidemic in the s and s, but attitudes and stigma surrounding HIV are for some still frozen in the past. It is no longer a death sentence, and patients can avoid the end result of full-blown AIDS. With better medication, HIV is an increasingly manageable chronic illness though one that is life altering medically and socially, close to a normal life span if not always a normal life. And there is still not a cure for HIV. As people live longer with the virus it can exacerbate many other health problems such as a heart condition or diabetes. You push toward a bunch of other illnesses at an earlier age than you normally get them, said Dr. Bob Schwartz, a Fort Myers physician who worked with HIV/AIDS patients for more than 30 years before retiring in 2012. There also remains a persistent and complicated stigma surrounding the virus that is tied up with thorny issues all their own such as sex, sexual orientation, race, gender and religion. Care providers and researchers believe these are key factors in what they say is a lack of prevention and education, and in driving an increase in new HIV cases in the state. Southwest Florida, though care is progressive, I would say the community is not as progressive, said Amalia Amy Zamot, prevention director at McGregor Clinic in Fort Myers, which serves about 1,200 HIV/ AIDS patients.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 19-25, 2016 NEWS A9ass. But theres a bigger stigma with being gay. And theres another stigma with being caught with a venereal disease. Telling close friends and family members can be one of the most difficult parts for people who have been diagnosed. I think the hardest part was telling my mom, Mr. Robertson said. I think she took it harder than I took it, at that time. Annette, a Fort Myers resident who tested positive in 2008, said even close family members, such as a sister, didnt want her to be around their kids at first. She told me she loved me but she appreciated it if I didnt come to her house anymore, Annette said. That changed over time along with Annettes initial reaction, considering suicide and losing herself in drugs and alcohol. Now because of antiretroviral medication she takes, one pill each day in the evening, the virus is undetectable in her system. Like others living with HIV, the regimen requires strict adherence and health monitoring, including for most patients visits to the doctor at least four times a year. Its also a financial burden for many. Patients get help paying for treatment through Medicaid, Medicare and the federal Ryan White Program funded at about $2.2 billion per year, if they meet income requirements. But co-pays and taking time off work can end up being costly. Now family members often give Annette a hug and a kiss when they gather, though not everyone. I will always have those issues, have some people in the family give me that certain look, walk around me, she said. Dealing with HIV at work also poses difficulties, said Scott George, director of publicity for Sarasotabased Community AIDS Network, a nonprofit that runs 23 clinics throughout Florida. That includes explaining time off taken for medical check-ups or sick leave, since the virus makes patients more susceptible to other illnesses. It just makes for a difficult relationship when youre living with this thing in your head, Mr. George said, adding that it exacerbates depression. I think thats one of those things that people dont realize is that there is a constant awareness of you being HIV positive and the possibility of getting full-blown AIDS and getting sick and so people with HIV live with that in their heads. At the same time, many people living with HIV otherwise appear fit and healthy. You cant really look at a person and tell whether theyre positive or not like you could back in the early s or s, Mr. Robertson said. So the medication has come a long way, but unfortunately once that stigma is there its very hard to break it. I think it takes generations and generations to pass for people to start coming around and for people to start viewing it differently. For many, having HIV is a huge secret, Mr. George said. Thats still where HIV is, 30, 35 years later Its not like cancer where everybody surrounds you and wants to help you. The first cases of what would become known as part of the HIV/AIDS epidemic were recognized in the United States in 1981. Valerie Wojciechowicz, who has lived with HIV for 30 years, reported in the Winter 2016 newsletter for the Community AIDS Network that because of her condition she has been fired from a job, turned away from medical treatment and Ive been told AIDS is Gods way of weeding out the population. An estimated 1.2 million people in the U.S. and 126,000 people in Florida are living with an HIV infection. Almost 13 percent of them dont know theyre infected, the Centers for Disease Control estimates, and 61 percent fail to keep up with HIV care that can reduce the viral load and decrease the risk of infection. The actual number is not quite that high, said Dr. Robert L. Cook, professor of epidemiology and medicine at the University of Florida. Better HIV surveillance methods, such as state-to-state information sharing, show it may be inflated. Were actually discovering that not as many people are out of care than the original estimates, he said. While people infected with HIV usually do not face premature death if they stay on antiretroviral medication and follow treatment guidelines, many still fail to get treatment for a variety of reasons, including feeling ashamed about having the virus and denial. In 2014, 874 people died from HIV or AIDS in Florida. There are a lot of people who have been diagnosed and are not in care and there are a range of reasons, but stigma continues to be a big one, and denial, Dr. Cook said. While the virus affects all races, genders and socioeconomic groups, minority communities have been hit hardest. The CDC projected in February that about half of gay or bisexual black men and a quarter of gay or bisexual Latino men will get HIV during their lifetime if current diagnosis rates stay the same. The lifetime risk of HIV diagnosis in the U.S. is 1 in 99. Blacks made up only 14 percent of Floridas population in 2014, but 41 percent of adult HIV infection cases, a figure similar to the U.S. as a whole. Young African American men who have sex with men are among the most at risk groups for contracting HIV. Lorenzo Robertson, who helps provide education and outreach to gay and bisexual black men through West Palm Beach-based Ujima Mens Collective, has found that starting conversations about HIV can be difficult. Thats for a number of reasons including religion in African American communities, he said, and the idea that HIV is Gods punishment for your aberrant behavior. Were looking at HIV, especially in black communities, as it was in 1985, he said. Its still the same mindset. Rates are also high among Hispanics, a group that accounted for 26 percent of new cases in 2014 while making up 23 percent of the population. Many of our clients come from countries where safer sex and HIV education are non-existent, wrote Stephen J. Fallon, executive director of Miami-based Latinos Salud, which provides testing and treatment, in an email. If they are gay/bisexual men, they may also carry internalized homophobia, and related to that, a fatalism about inevitable HIV infection. At the same time, from 2005 to 2014, the number of HIV cases decreased 9 percent among blacks in Florida, while there were small increases for whites and Hispanics during the same time. Mr. George attributed that at least in part to black churches and communities in the Sarasota area being open to discussions about HIV. I must say that a lot of the African American churches in our area are very open to helping their young and often ask us to come when they have a big event or something with our testing van, he said. There are more than 44,000 new HIV infections diagnosed in the U.S. per year, with some of the highest rates in the country in South Florida. Miami-Dade has the highest number of new infections in the state by a large margin, followed by Broward, Orange and Palm Beach counties. Lee and Collier counties have higher rates than the state as a whole while Charlotte Countys rates are lower. There clearly are many more new infections emerging in Florida than there could be because it is a preventable condition, said Dr. Cook. That includes a daily pill that has proven effective at preventing HIV called PrEP or Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis. Condoms are still considered the best way for most sexually active people to prevent HIV and a range of other STDs. Prevention should also include providing better instruction in public schools, said Patti Kelly, a case manager at Aids Healthcare Foundation-Island Coast Aids Network in Fort Myers and mother of three teenagers. Floridas official abstinence only until marriage sex education policy means most educators only teach abstinence. People age 13 to 24 accounted for about 1 in 5 HIV diagnosis in the U.S. in 2014. I think the lack of education in the school system doesnt help, she said. Ms. Zamot with McGregor Clinic in Fort Myers said they may not be as knowledgeable about HIV and AIDS because they didnt live through the early days of the epidemic, and have a youthful sense of indestructability. Sam, a 55-year-old Fort Myers man who has lived with an HIV diagnosis since 1989 and mentors youth who have the virus, said education about it should start at home. Some people in their teens or 20s with HIV have circles of friends they dont trust enough to tell, so they end up staying away from treatment altogether. Its like the ostrich syndrome, he said. Instead of talking to somebody about it, they hide their head. The rates of new HIV infections are higher in Florida, especially in urban areas and in some South Florida communities, than the United States as a whole. Researchers point to systemic social factors such as poverty, employment, education, access to health care, and stigma, as well as Floridas historically high HIV rates and budget cuts within its public health system. It is hard to know which is the greatest factor, wrote Dr. Robert L. Cook, professor of epidemiology and medicine at the University of Florida, in an email. Florida in general has not done a great job with pushing HIV prevention in the public health system, he wrote, although they are much more aggressive on HIV prevention this year. The virus is contracted most by men having sex with men, followed by heterosexual sex and injection drug use. Communities that have long had higher HIV rates often continue to have them. Florida has historically been among the top states in terms of HIV cases, thus the community viral load is greater than in other areas of the country, wrote Rik Pavlescak, Ph.D., chief operating officer of FoundCare. When you look at Florida overall, youll see a much larger portion of the cases in South Florida versus the rest of the state. This area tends to be more urban, and may attract some populations that are more greatly impacted by the social determinants of health.

BETTY WELLS / FLORIDA billboard signs across Fort Myers encourage patients to get care, and those at risk to get tested. HIV/AIDS 101The human immunode ciency virus can lead to the most serious stage of HIV infection, acquired immunode ciency syndrome. The virus attacks the bodys immune system so that eventually it cant ght off other infections and disease. While there is no cure for HIV and the body cant ever be rid of the virus completely, it can be controlled with antiretroviral therapy medication. Most people who stay on treatment can live long, quality lifespans. It also reduces the risk of transmission to others. If left untreated, however, people with AIDS usually live for about three years. It is not easy to spread HIV. It is most often spread through unprotected anal or vaginal sex, as well as syringe use. HIV is not transmitted through casual contact such as using the same toilet, touching, drinking fountains or silverware. It is extremely rare for HIV to be transmitted by oral sex, blood transfusions or kissing. HIV cannot be spread through saliva, only through blood, semen and pre-seminal uid, rectal uids, vaginal uids and breast milk.

Where are they now?Catching up with Guadalupe Center alumni SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe young adults featured here grew up in Immokalee. Some are the children of migrant farmworkers, others have parents who cobble together multiple low-paying jobs to support their families. All of them found the Guadalupe Centers Tutor Corps Program while attending Immokalee High School. Once accepted into the college preparatory program, they were paid a wage to tutor younger children every day after school and in the summer in Guadalupes after-school and summer enrichment programs, all while maintaining a GPA of at least 3.0. They earned up to $16,000 in scholarship money and were assigned an adult mentor. They also received support and guidance from Guadalupes High School and College Tutor Corps coordinators. Today, they are out in the workforce, supporting themselves and often their families as well. Many have aspirations to return to their hometown and improve life there. Dr. Elizabeth Midney-Martinez, Class of 2005 In her third year of residency in family medicine at Lee Memorial Hospital, Dr. Midney-Martinez was selected as chief resident by her peers. She earned a bachelors degree in biology from the University of Miami and her M.D. from Ross University in Dominica. Remembering the difficulty her own parents had in finding good health care for their family when she was growing up, Dr. Midney-Martinez would like to open a practice in Immokalee to serve the community she loves. Lucio Martinez, Class of 2007 After graduating with a bachelors degree in civil engineering and a masters in structural engineering from the University of Florida, Mr. Martinez was hired as a structural engineer with Kisinger Campo & Associates Corp. in Tampa. His job includes designing concrete and steel bridges and rehabilitating and repairing existing bridges throughout Florida. Martin Lopez, Class of 2009 Mr. Lopez is serving as an intern for Judge Darly Trawick, Circuit Criminal Division, in Miami. Following his internship, he will complete his masters degree in taxation and corporate law and then pursue his law career. He earned a bachelors degree in business administration from the University of Miami and graduated from St. Thomas University School of Law earlier this month. He looks forward to taking the Florida Bar exam. Juan Lopez, Class of 2011 Mr. Lopez is a business banker with Regions Bank in Tampa, serving business clients with assets between $1 million and $20 million. He earned his bachelors degree in finance from the University of South Florida. Elizabeth Hernandez, Class of 2001 After earning a bachelors degree in elementary education from Florida Gulf Coast University, Ms. Hernandez returned to Immokalee and is in her second year teaching kindergarten at Eden Park Elementary School. She is excited to be able to help students in her own community. Dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty in Immokalee through education since the early 1990s, the Guadalupe Center started operation in 1982 as a soup kitchen. The first early childhood education building was opened in 1996 to educate children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age in preparation for entering Immokalees elementary schools. Today, in addition to the early childhood education program, the center operates an after-school program as well as the college preparatory Tutor Corps Program.

The idea, according to inventor Andrew Jason Conrad, is to better focus light onto the retina. (The patent process does not assure that the device will ever come to fruition, but it might indicate that Googles parent, Alphabet, is concerned that other inventors might be doing similar work.)Least-competent copsMotorist Rebecca Musarra was stopped for speeding in October 2015 by state troopers in New Jersey, and dutifully handed over her license, insurance and registration, but declined to answer the troopers do you know why we stopped you questions. Annoyed at her silence, troopers Matthew Stazzone and Demetric Gosa threatened several times, with increasing aggressiveness (according to dashboard video obtained by NJ Advance Media), to arrest Musarra for obstruction. Musarra pointed out that as nearly every American knows she has the right to remain silent. The troopers nonetheless arrested her (then recited, of course, her right to remain silent). After nearly two hours back at the station, a supervisor offered a weak apology and released her. Musarra, an attorney, unsurprisingly has filed a federal lawsuit. Cavalcade of weird animalsThe species Acanthonus armatus first showed up in waters near Vancouver, British Columbia, 10 years ago, generating ichthyological excitement in that it is widely known as the assfish. The Royal BC Museum in Victoria, British Columbia, put one on display in January with its bulbous head and flabby skin resembling a glorified tadpole, said a museum curator, who declined to guess at the origin of the assfish name (bypassing a chance to link it to the fishs large mouth and tiny brain).The entrepreneurial spirit Before new parents ruin their baby daughters chances of future success by giving her weak names (such as Polly), they should consult one of several services that recommend more powerful ones (such as Elizabeth).

The concept was an overnight sensation, but quickly petered out and was seemingly worthless until a prescient businessman offered $85,000 for its two assets: (1) a valuable list of customers who might buy similar pranks (such as a cupcake thats really horse manure) and (2) an opportunity at additional waves of customers newly discovering the original glitter product. The $85,000 purchaser now reports sales in the high six figures.Leading economic indicators1) As Chinas real-estate construction boom fades, tempers have flared, and according to a local government officer in Hebei province, two companies officials angling for a contract wildly dueled each other in their bulldozers in an incident captured on video.

(2) Italys top appeals court ruled in April that a homeless man stealing cheese and sausage from a grocery story in Genoa, and who received a six-month jail term for it, was actually not guilty of criminal behavior at all. The court set him free using a traditional Italian legal principle that no one is required to do the impossible which, the court surmised, would be to allow himself to starve.

It seemed like a natural thing to do, the longtime champion of the arts said, calling WGCUs radio and TV stations the largest stage in this part of the country. It reaches so many people every day. Its big. Its one of the most important projects in the two counties. It reaches so many hundreds of thousands of people for free. I believe in them, she said. I see good theater, good dance, I see the arts. I see everything on their shows. WGCU Public Media is also dear to Mrs. Daniels heart because in college, she worked at her schools small radio station. While attending college in Terre Haute, Ind., she also worked WBOW, writing scripts and doing mic work, she said. It was her training on air and her newspaper work that laid the foundation for her going into the advertising business, where she became a pioneer in the field. Early in her career, she was also an instructor at Indiana State University. FGCU President Wilson Bradshaw expressed his appreciation to Mrs. Daniels, saying, It is gratifying to know that an iconic figure in the arts community is so supportive of public broadcasting and FGCU. Mrs. Daniels generous gift is yet another example of her commitment to the arts in Southwest Florida and beyond. Florida Gulf Coast University and WGCU Public Media are honored to recognize her transformative gift. WGCU General Manager Rick Johnson said Mrs. Daniels gift will endow one of the most significant aspects of our mission to bring the arts to all in Southwest Florida.

McGraw Foundation. To date, the Fund Our Future campaign has raised $8.5 million of its $30 million goal. Established in 2014 by WGCU, the goal of the initiative is to raise $30 million in capital and endowment funds by 2024 without affecting WGCUs important annual fundraising goals. WGCU Public Media serves seven counties with three digital TV channels, two FM radio channels, three HD radio channels and a monthly magazine. More than 60 percent of the stations funding comes from individual donations and corporate support. I think every private citizen has the responsibility to do something public to make their community better, Mrs. Daniels said. It doesnt have to be big. I hope other people give to this fund, whether its $1 or $100, so it can go on forever and ever. BIG GIFTFrom page 1It seemed like a natural thing to do ... It reaches so many people every day. Its big. Its one of the most important projects in the two counties. It reaches so many hundreds of thousands of people for free. Myra Janco Daniels

The work entails removing the berm along the sidewalk and re-landscaping the area to improve drainage and prepare for potential development, and building public restrooms at the observation deck. The sidewalk adjacent to the berm will be raised to increase drainage and usability. The observation deck has become a popular amenity since it opened in 2011, according to Chris Rozansky, executive director of the Naples Airport Authority. We added speakers so people can listen to conversations between air traffic control tower and pilots, and Eagle Scouts provided picnic tables, exercise stations and a bicycle rack, Mr. Rozansky said, adding, Constructing restrooms adds convenience for those using the deck and the Gordon River Greenway. Owen-Ames-Kimball Co. is leading the improvement project, which is expected to take approximately 12 weeks to complete. The observation deck remains open for public use during most of the construction. The airport welcomed the return of scheduled airline service this past February, when Elite Airways began flights to Newark, N.J., and Portland, Maine. The airport is also home to flight schools, air charter operators, car rental agencies and corporate aviation and non-aviation businesses, as well as fire/rescue services, mosquito control, the Collier County Sheriffs Aviation Unit and other community services. During the 2014-15 fiscal year, the airport accommodated 99,569 takeoffs and landings. For more information, visit flynaples. com.

OFFICES IN NAPLES, FORT MYERS, CAPE CORAL & ESTERO BEHIND THE WHEELThe S60 Inscription: more Volvo courtesy of ChinaVolvo has been trying to add excitement to its image of safety, reliability and practicality. But the model that fits the stereotype of a solid and sensible car is arguably the most significant. The importance of the 2016 Volvo S60 T5 Inscription is less about what it is and more about from where it came. The S60 Inscription was built in Chengdu, China, and represents the first Chinese automotive export to the U.S. This might seem shocking at first, but not once you learn some background info. First, Volvo has been wholly owned by the Chinese car firm Geely since 2010. It has done a good job of keeping the Swedish carmaker well financed, and have kept most of the production centralized to Scandinavia. But China has unique automotive tastes. Wealthy Chinese prefer to be chauffer driven. Rather than buy long-wheelbase L versions of the BMW 7-Series or the Audi A8, they have asked for unique stretched versions of smaller sedans such as the BMW 3-Series and Audi A4. Its easy to create cars specifically for China because by law, all international firms must partner with a local company and have local production. Volvo is just going one step further. The brea d-and-butter S60 sedan is built primarily in Europe, but the Chengdu factory is the only one with an extended wheelbase model in production. Volvo would like to increase sales any way possible, and offering something unique to Americans seems quite appealing. So, the only factory with the extended wheelbase S60 added the chic Inscription name and started sending these sedans across the Pacific. That might seem like a long way to go for an extra 3.1 inches, but by getting a car from a new place, we are getting a taste of the old Volvo. It is nearly impossible to distinguish the S60 and the S60 Inscription from the outside without a side-by-side comparison. Some owners might not be pleased that no one can tell the difference when their Inscriptions $38,900 base price is $4,850 higher. Inside, the added wheelbase goes directly to the rear legroom. The S60 Inscription grows by three inches, which moves the feeling from somewhat compact to downright spacious. Plus there are seat heaters, large vents, a power sunshade and enough light wood and metal trim to open a small Ikea. So the back seat is no longer a demotion. The driver is often secondary in China, but it doesnt feel that way here. There are plenty of luxuries, and even more of that Nordic wood. (While it does look and feel nice, the older control layout reminds us the S60 line is due for a redesign soon.) Volvo has needed to creep up the premium scale over the last quarter-century. At one time it just sold safety and peace of mind. Today its adding real wood interiors and sport suspensions to get closer to Mercedes and BMW. But the Inscription rekindles the old Volvo feeling. The extended wheelbase rides a little easier than the standard S60, and the car is specifically built to be comfortable for its backseat owners. Because horsepower isnt a priority, the smaller T5 2.0-liter turbocharged motor is the only one offered. At 240 horsepower its no slouch, but the feeling is far more easygoing than the 302-hp T6 thats available on other models. Instead of speed, this just has the solid feeling of Volvos from years ago. The seats still have oversized headrests (now as part of whiplash protection). Airbags are everywhere. There are even some nifty technology items such as low speed collision avoidance, drowsy driver detection, multiple blind spot monitors and red lights on the windshield that glow brighter the closer traffic gets. It is like driving the equivalent of a vigilant mother persistently looking after her newborn. Honestly, though, theres more backseat room for less money in the Honda Accord or Ford Fusion. The S60 Inscription wont be a runaway success, but the company isnt betting all of its lutefisk on this one. Instead, its a niche car that will add some sales by providing that old Volvo feeling. The company just had to pick it up from the Orient Express.

Research finds genetic links to educational attainment THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHAn international team of researchers has identified 74 areas of the human genome associated with educational attainment. It is well known that social and other environmental factors influence education, but these findings, reported by the Social Science Genetics Association Consortium, suggest that large genetics analyses may be able to help discover biological pathways as well.The genome-wide association study, referred to as GWAS, was supported by the National Institute on Aging and the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research, both part of the National Institutes of Health. It was reported in the May 11 issue of Nature.Perhaps ultimately, well be able to learn why and how educational attainment seems to be protective of cognition in later life. Jonathan King, Ph.D. The National Institute on AgingThis is an interesting development in behavior genetics, said NIA Director Richard Hodes, M.D. It extends our understanding of the connection between the genetic components of cognition and years of formal education. The SSGAC, led by Daniel Benjamin, Ph.D., of the University of Southern California, found 74 separate areas (loci) on human chromosomes that are associated with more years of education. These loci are also associated with other areas that correlate with increased cognitive performance and intracranial volume, decreased levels of emotional instability (neuroticism) and decreased risk of Alzheimers disease. The researchers conducted the GWAS on almost 294,000 people of primarily European descent from around the world. Genetic samples were obtained from several ongoing studies, including many funded by NIA: the Health and Retirement Study; the Age, Gene/Environment Susceptibility Reykjavic Study; and the SardiNIA Study of Aging, as well as dozens of other cohorts. The team then replicated these findings in an independent sample of more than 111,000 people from the UK BioBank study. Previous research has shown that genetic factors account for about 20 percent of variation in educational attainment. In this study, 74 single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs, were identified. The investigators note that, as a group, these SNPs only account for a very small portion (0.43 percent) of the variation across individuals in the sample; individually, each SNP has a very small influence. The study team regards this study as preliminary and exploratory. Because educational attainment is a complex phenomenon, there are many additional sources of molecular genetic variation to be discovered. Other genetic and environmental effects and their interactions are important topics for future research. These study results will enable us to ask more refined questions about the genetic and environmental underpinnings of educational attainment and their health consequences, said Jonathan King, Ph.D., program director in NIAs Division of Behavioral and Social Research, which supports the SSGAC. For example, weve known for quite a while that education appears to be a protective factor against Alzheimers, he added. But education is itself a very complica ted o utcome. It depends on genetic contributions to cognitive ability and other characteristics that motivate individuals to continue education, as well as substantial environmental contributions to educational success. The results of this study and future work will enable us to better understand how these pathways interact, he continued. Perhaps ultimately, well be able to learn why and how educational attainment seems to be protective of cognition in later life. The size of the study made it possible to answer questions not able to be addressed previously. For example, because of the large number of participants, the researchers were able to identify many more loci that appear to contribute to cognitive ability than had been previously known. The study has implications for future research, where these links can be further explored. Data on the level of education attained by participants is routinely collected. With that information and a DNA sample, investigators can conduct additional GWAS of other racial and ethnic groups, which could allow identification of new variants and genetic pathways associated with educational attainment and further validate the contribution of loci from the study reported on May 11. The research was coordinated by SSGAC. Funded by the NIA, the SSGAC is a cooperative enterprise among biomedical researchers and social scientists that coordinates genetic association studies for social scienc e outc omes and provides a platform for interdisciplinary collaboration. The NIA leads the federal government effort conducting and supporting research on aging and the health and well being of older people. Its broad scientific program seeks to understand the nature of aging and to extend the healthy, active years of life. It is also the lead institute at the NIH supporting and conducting studies on Alzheimers disease and related dementias.

The Baby Boomers have begun to reach retirement age, and theyre not slowing down; theyre living longer and enjoying better quality of life than any mature mother and young daughtergeneration before them. The modern grandma might still bake cookies and sew quilts, but she also jogs, goes rock climbing and keeps up an active lifestyle that might exhaust someone half her age. Of course, she also has a few secret weapons that help keep her looking as fabulous as she feels all without surgery. (Who has the time?) Grandmas no longer need to put up with grey hair, wrinkles or a double chin that can make even a slender woman look heavier or older than she really is. Unfortunately, diet and exercise arent consistently effecting at reducing a double chin. Fortunately, though, there are several options available to get Grandma that sleek look she desires. Kybella is an FDAapproved procedure that injects deoxycholic acid under the chin for contouring and permanent removal of unwanted fat. Patients ment even after a single chin shot though most require two or three treatments to achieve their best results. Theres also the Coolmini, which was recently approved to freeze fat the under chin area. Both these procedures can help slim the neck area. A double chin may not even be caused by fat at all, but by age or heredity, causing the skin of the neck to lose elasticity and become slack. Dr. Flaharty uses INFINI skin tightening to send radiofrequency energy into the deeper layers of skin beneath the surface, tightening skin and stimulating the production of new collagen. The result is a tighter neck. Cosmetic products like Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are also a part of many grandmas secret of youth; these products erase lines and wrinkles and combined with ing natural-looking fullness and smoothness of facial features. And of course, every glam grandma takes her skincare seriously. Dr. Flaharty and the Azul minister medical-grade skin treatments and products that a beauty spa cannot offer, providing a choice of a European-style Signature Facial, a HydraFacial for thirsty skin and a rejuvenating Infusion Facial that leaves skin visibly tighter and brighter. Telltale lines and other signs of aging are minimized with regular medical peels, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning. Dr. Flaharty always offers a free initial consultation to go over your health and medical history, as well as to assess which procedure(s) will best help you create the appearance you want. Patients with certain skin conditions, for instance, might not be candidates for a chemical intense pulsed light treatments. Goodbye redness and dark spots, hello bright, even-toned skin! And why should Grandma stop at her face, when she puts so much work into keeping her body as young as her mind? EXILIS body contouring and CoolSculpting use targeted cooling energy to eliminate those last stubborn deposits of fat on the thighs, abdomen and back. There is minimal discomfort and no downtime, which means that Grandma can get back on her Harley as soon as she leaves after treatment. Shes got places to go, things to accomplish and no time for feeling old. Even if you dont have a Harley (yet), you can still contact Azul to schedule your free consultation.

A little over a year ago, she noticed that her 10-year-old cat Twyla, a blue Abyssinian, had a tiny nodule near one of her nipples. It wasnt painful and Twyla wasnt behaving differently, but Padilla knew something wasnt right. She took Twyla to her veterinarian, who surgically removed the nodule, along with a distal lymph node from behind a hind leg and sent them to a pathology lab for analysis. More than 90 percent of feline mammary tumors are malignant, says board-certified veterinary oncologist Gregory Ogilvie, and Padilla knew that. She was prepared for the worst. The tumor was indeed cancerous, and tests on the lymph node indicated that the cancer had already metastasized into the lymphatic system.If there was good news, it was that both an ultrasound of Twylas abdominal area and radiographs of her chest showed no signs that the cancer had spread there, Padilla says. Based on Twylas overall good health and strong physical condition she was the first winner of the Cat Fanciers Association Feline Agility National Padilla opted for the standard of treatment: a radical mastectomy to remove all four mammary glands on the cancer-affected side, followed by a radical mastectomy to remove all the mammaries on the other side. That surgery is a lot of trauma on a small cat, Padilla says. The day I brought Twyla home, I was really frightened. The sutured incision went from just below her neck to her groin. My poor cat was shivering, and there was no way she could get comfortable. I set up a large cage, lined with pillows so that she would not contort her body, and would just lay still. She looked dreadful. Padilla questioned her decision to fight the cancer, but two days later, Twyla was eager to eat and wanted to play. Her condition improved rapidly, and the most difficult part of recovery was keeping her confined for three weeks so she could heal. Shes a sociable cat, so not only did Padilla spend time sitting on the floor next to her cage to keep her company, she also asked neighbors to come in and spend time with her while she was at work. Once the surgical incisions healed, Twyla began receiving chemotherapy, a total of five rounds given every two to three weeks. Sometimes radiation therapy is also used, Dr. Ogilvie says. In Twylas case, chemotherapy brought another challenge. After the first chemo infusion, the vets realized that Twyla would have to be sedated for each treatment, as she is too active and busy, Padilla says. The high-dose regimen complete, Twyla now receives a daily low dose of medication. Called metronomic therapy, the goal is to stop remaining tumor cells from sprouting blood vessels in effect, to starve them. The tablet is compounded to taste like chicken, so Twyla thinks shes getting a treat every morning, Padilla says. If there has been a challenge with the lowdose chemo tablet, it is keeping Twylas weight up. The tablet can make her stomach a little upset, so she is not hungry, but it doesnt make her vomit. I try to give her nutritious treats during the day. Padilla is glad she decided to treat her cats cancer. Twyla is one very happy girlfriend, she says. She loves every day, and at 11 years old, remains probably the most active cat in my house.

Prepare to eat late and pay the priceAfter spending a whirlwind weekend on South Beach in Miami, I cant tell if Ive changed, or Miamis changed. Probably a little bit of both. When I was a 20-something single diva, Southwest Florida was dull as grits. Our little corner of paradise sparkles much brighter today than it did back in the early s, when virtual tumbleweeds rolled through the streets, the only art galleries had nothing but painted seashells and carved coconuts and live music meant Jimmy Buffet wannabes strumming their six strings on the beach. These days we have bountiful choices in live theater and music, art shows and festive nightlife. But back in the day, if a girl wanted to get dolled up and go dancing with people her own age, she had to pile in a car with a gaggle of friends and head across Alligator Alley for some action. The Miami Beach of the early s was alternative without being too hip. My girlfriends and I would pool our limited funds and pay $40 a night to stay at the Marseilles Hotel on Collins Avenue. The rooms had green shag carpeting and smelled like mildew but hey, the price was right. The hotel has since been remodeled, the shag carpet is long gone and the nightly rate can reach $400. Back then, my friends and I would usually start out at The Kitchen Club, an underground, progressive club that was a blast. Then wed move on to the Warsaw Ball Room, a gay club, where wed dance to house music until we had blisters on our feet. Finally, wed end the evening around 4 a.m. with a nightcap at a dive bar called Club Deuce. I dont remember ever paying a cover or waiting on the sad side of the velvet rope. It had been a good 15 years since Id seen South Beach when Todd and I headed over for a recent weekend getaway. While it was certainly fun, I dont even understand a world in which people make dinner reservations for 10 at NIGHT. But Prime 112 on Ocean Drive was highly recommended, and when Fabiola the reservations lady answered the phone, she told us the only time we could get dinner would be at 10. We threw caution to the wind, decided to be adventurous and went for it. The outside of the restaurant was packed with young, attractive people who all looked like Kardashians muscling their way to get in, teetering on 6-inch heels. I wasnt a bit flustered by the mob scene after all, we had reservations. Alas, those reservations meant nothing. There were other people in line who were STILL waiting for their 8 oclock reservations. The doorman couldnt have cared less when we moved on to another restaurant a block away a place lovely but not as mobbed where we had a delightful meal. As we were enjoying our dessert at nearly midnight, we received a text that our reservation was ready. Seriously. Toto, we werent in Southwest Florida anymore. It was a beautiful weekend to be on South Beach. The Atlantic was azure blue, and theres always a sea breeze over there that we just dont get over here on our coast. But it comes with a price: Theres no such thing as a cocktail under $15, and we heard about one dance club that doesnt open until midnight and commands a $120 cover charge for women and $140 for men and people actually PAY this. Lincoln Road, filled with restaurants, art, music and shops, was very much as I remembered it. But, poor Ocean Drive looks a bit worse for the wear and has lost its glitter. On our last night in Miami, we ordered room service and danced in our hotel room. My speed might have changed a bit, but the architecture, fashion and excitement of the east coast is still alluring. And while I probably wouldnt want to live there (Id go broke), I love that its only two hours away. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week Drinks at Havana 1957STEPHANIE DAVIS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe evening ended at a dive bar called Club Deuce.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Talking InventoryWhen evaluating a company as a possible investment, you may benefit by taking a look at its inventory numbers. In financial statements, inventory refers to everything in a companys pipeline, from raw materials to work in progress to finished goods. Imagine the One-Legged Chair Co. (ticker: WOOPS). Making its products involves ordering, receiving, storing and using materials such as wood, screws and perhaps some upholstery supplies, which are assembled into finished products. Inventory is likely to include piles of wood, halfassembled chairs, packaged chairs ready to be shipped to distributors and chairs returned from retailers.Too little inventory is problematic as it can hold up production when shortages occur and should demand spike, it can be hard to meet it. Too much inventory, meanwhile, ties up money that could be used more effectively. It generates extra storage costs, too, and is risky should demand or prices fall. Finished goods sitting on shelves a long time also risk not being sold.Inventory appears on a companys balance sheet. Compare it with year-ago levels and with revenue growth. If inventory is rising faster than revenue, that could signal slowing sales. If inventory growth lags sales, the company isnt meeting demand, or its successfully tightening controls on production processes and distribution.To get a sense of how quickly a companys products are flying off the shelves, calculate its inventory turnover, which reflects how many times per year (or quarter) it sells or replaces its inventory. From the income statement, find the value of the past 12 months cost of goods sold. Divide that by the average value of inventory (from the balance sheet) between the beginning and end of the year. You can also look it up online at sites such as caps. or and growing turnover numbers can reflect well-managed companies freeing up funds for other uses. Low turnover ratios tend to reflect sluggish sales. Ratios vary by industry, so compare a companys results with those of its peers. Adidas turnover was recently 3.1, for example, vs. 3.9 for Nike. Short-Term LossesWell, I bought 50 shares each of Fitbit and GoPro just before the stock market headed south some months ago. Between the two stocks, I have lost more than $2,000. (This was after making $900-plus on Under Armour stock over a couple of months.) I guess I was a bit (or very) overconfident. W.W., onlineThe Fool Responds: Youre right that those two stocks have swooned. Fitbit and GoPro shares were recently down 54 percent and 42 percent, respectively, year to date. Its rarely useful to assess any stocks performance over just a few months, though. Great wealth is often built in the stock market over many years, instead. Any great company can see its shares slump for a protracted period before bouncing back and hitting new highs.The stock market itself will occasionally plunge, too, though its overall trend has always been up. Patience can pay off as long as you remain a believer in your portfolios holdings. You need to assess whether youre still confident in the companies futures.The market for wearable fitness trackers seems solid and growing, but its not clear whether Fitbit, facing ample competition, will be a long-term winner. GoPros wearable cameras were very hot for a while, but demand has cooled a bit. Whether you might buy, sell or hold either depends on your outlook for the company. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended GoPro.) Charging ProfitsAn effective investing strategy is to invest for the long term in companies with solid business models. A good example is electronic payment processing giant Visa (NYSE: V). Among the four major credit card networks, Visa is the market share leader by far. Its very geographically diverse, operating in most countries, so a slowdown in one country or region can often be offset by growth elsewhere. MasterCard CFO Martina Hund-Mejean has noted that 85 percent of global transactions are still being conducted in cash, suggesting plenty of room for further credit card growth. Visa has productive partnerships in place, and supplements its organic growth with acquisitions. It has taken a 10 percent stake in rival Square, and even more important, is buying former subsidiary Visa Europe for around $23 billion. Over the past decade, Visas revenue has grown by a double-digit percentage in all but two years, and based on Wall Streets estimate of $14.9 billion in revenue this year, Visa may quintuple its top line since 2006. The companys profit margins are very fat and growing. It keeps nearly 48 cents of every dollar it takes in as profit. It also generates substantial free cash flow more than $6 billion annually. Visas dividend yield isnt huge now, but its payout has been growing briskly. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended MasterCard and Visa.) I trace my roots back to 1962 when a funeral director founded me in order to buy up more businesses. He achieved economies of scale by having funeral homes near each other share resources and make services such as embalming and transportation more efficient. Over the years I acquired competitors such as Alderwoods Group and Stewart Enterprises and The Neptune Society Americas largest cremation service provider. Today, based in Houston, Im North Americas largest deathcare company, with my Dignity Memorial network recently encompassing more than 2,000 funeral homes and cemeteries. I employ about 24,000 people. Who am I? (Answer: Service Corporation International) Homebuyer InvestingQHow should I invest the money Ive saved to buy a house within a few years? F.Y., Spring, TexasAThe stock market is a great option for long-term money, but its the wrong place for any funds youll need within a few years. In the short run, the market can temporarily plunge with little notice, and that can derail your plans. In the long run, it has averaged gains of close to 10 percent per year. Even that is an average, though, and not a guarantee. Dont risk money youll need within three years (or even five or 10 years, to be more conservative) in stocks. Protect your principal by investing short-term money in safer places, such as CDs or money market accounts. You can find good rates at ***QWhat is a poison pill strategy? N.R., Mansfield, OhioASometimes referred to as a shareholder rights plan, its a strategy a company may use in order to avoid being taken over. One kind of poison pill involves shareholders (but not a would-be acquirer) being permitted to buy additional shares of company stock at a discount. This dilutes the value of each share, including those held by the acquirer, making a buyout more difficult and costly to pull off. Another poison-pill tactic is to allow shareholders to buy the would-be acquirers stock at a discount in the event of a merger. Poison pill rules are typically triggered whenever some partys ownership stake in a company crosses a set threshold. Poison pill strategies may be effective, but theyre not always embraced. After all, they dilute the voting power of shareholders shares and sometimes a company being acquired is a good thing. Want more information about stocks?

Theres Internet access, a kitchen and conference rooms with screens. Eventually, there will be video conferencing and studio space to communicate with audiences, collaborators and investors around the globe. More importantly, RocketLounge itself will invest in startups it believes in, nurture them, and then help them seek more funding in order to launch. Already, a product is being marketed and prepared for distribution. Insulin NG, an FDA-approved test that can predict whether someone is likely to contract diabetes several years down the road, is seeking its next round of funding from here. By combining some of the newer industry trends: co-working, incubators and accelerators Mr. Kondek believes that he and his team will transform the business landscape of Southwest Florida. Already, outfits like the Naples Accelerator, Tamiami Angel Fund, Englewood Incubation Center and Venture X have laid the foundation for a labor-force transformation in Southwest Florida. The future of workCo-working spaces took off in the U.S. in the last decade. They were developed as places where freelancers could come together out of their home offices and collaborate as needed. They also provided the necessary room and office equipment to keep a business running. Incubators offer advice, planning, mentorship and strategizing as well as a physical location for startups to create and implement their business plans and seek out investment. Accelerators resemble incubators, and the two concepts can often be found under the same roof. An accelerator is characterized by offering short-term programs, lasting anywhere from six weeks to three or four months. The goal is to bring entrepreneurs up to speed on everything theyll need to get their product from the early idea stages to market. Throughout Southwest Florida, various ventures implement some or all of these workplace models. All of these innovation ventures believe they can cooperate in order to grow. We need to look at ourselves as a region, says Lucienne Pears, Charlotte Countys economic development director. Charlotte is home to the Englewood Incubation Center, which has an industrial focus, offering independent entrepreneurs access to commercial cutting, welding, bending, soldering, molding and drilling equipment. Participants can also apply for an accelerator program offered by the center. Nearby universities, which tend to attract innovators and motivated business people, are one ingredient for successful innovation hubs. Ms. Pears expects that with the recent expansion of Western Michigan University with an aviation school in Charlotte, along with the presence of Florida SouthWestern and FGCU, that the climate might favor more innovative workspace ideas there. Regardless, she has been in meetings and on business trips with the leaders of innovation ventures in Lee and Collier counties and they all seem to agree that cooperation, not competition, will lead to success for them all. When we see what happens with the Naples Accelerator, or the Immokalee Incubator (the Immokalee Business Development Center) all of that can benefit all of us, she says. Co-working energyDavid Diamond, co-founder of DeAngelis Diamond Construction in Naples, was visiting incubators in California and New York in search of companies to put money into as an angel investor about five years ago. He and his son Brent toured a building where AOL had recently downsized and had converted the entire first floor to co-working space for startups and small businesses. The Diamonds witnessed one startup with five employees partnering with other workers in the same site to find solutions to a server problem they were having. The energy created by hundreds of motivated, independent workers buzzing about was intoxicating. We fell in love with that concept, says Brent Diamond, who went on with his father to create Venture X in the Mercato in Naples. Its building a community so that when you go to work, youre not working by yourself, he says. A web designer can go across the hall and theres an attorney. He can chat with him. They can be friends. They can exchange contacts. Or they can do business together. Venture X is on the verge of franchising in Texas and other markets throughout the country. For a fee, members can work either in open spaces or (pricier) private offices as well as lounge and recreation areas where networking often happens organically. Theres also an online directory of members that Mr. Diamond expects will grow along with his company. Back at RocketLounge, Guillermo Fernandez and Tyler Whitman, recent FGCU grads, sit in front of RocketLounge partner Peter Ocsody. Theyre looking at a spreadsheet on a large screen, refining their ideas and asking Mr. Ocsody advice on how best to bring their company, Lithos Technologies, and its product an easy-to-deploy, high performance tripod to the market. The young entrepreneurs won a pitch contest recently at FGCU that granted them membership to the RocketLounges accelerator services. Their presence here fits naturally with another tenant, Dreamtime Entertainment, a worldwide video production company based in Southwest Florida. Their feedback on the new tripod, for instance, could prove to be essential in the development of the product. Whereas Venture Xs business model relies essentially on rent payments, the accelerator/incubator RocketLounge looks to make its big money by investing in the companies it mentors; owning a stake of somewhere between 5-8 percent. Thats why RocketLounge is fostering relationships with angel investors like those in the Tamiami Venture Fund II. For bigger investment still, theyre also partnering with venture capitalists both locally and worldwide. We go to Austin, Boston, New York and pitch. We go to Germany and pitch. We go to Germany, Austria and Finland and pitch Florida. Come here. Its onethird of the cost of San Francisco with a much better quality of life. You can program 365 days a year and every evening you can go to the beach and raise your family in a nice area. Moreover, Mr. Kondek believes that our regions focus on tourism, construction, agriculture and health care gives us an advantage over places like Silicon Valley. Restaurants, building estimators, farmers and doctors will all need innovative solutions for their industrys respective challenges. Mr. Kondek maintains that theres no better place than here to design, build and create those solutions. INNOVATEFrom page 1

C2 Naples Players artistic director plans to leave her role Sixteen years ago, Dallas came to Naples. Now, to the dismay of many in the local theater world, Dallas Dunnagan has announced her resignation as artistic director of The Naples Players. I just feel its time for a change, she says. I dont want people to think Im retiring. Im not retiring, she clarifies. Im just leaving (the role of) artistic direction at the Napes Players. Shes told the theater shell stay until it has a replacement. Well find somebody, she says. Ill be here until we do. Its not like Im rushing out the door. The decision was a personal one, not an organizational one. Naples Players Executive Director John Sorey posted the job on Tuesday, May 3. Three days later, hed received resumes from more than 30 applicants. That gives you an idea of the image of The Naples Players in the theater world, he says. Over her 16 years with the community theater, Ms. Dunnagan has directed more than 30 shows, including Oliver!, A Little Night Music, The Drowsy Chaperone, A Lion in Winter, Les Miserables, The Laramie Project and The Importance of Being Ernest. Shes never shied away from difficult productions, staging more than a few that are challenging most community theaters dont attempt to perform them. She has also overseen the development of others directorial talents. Ms. Dunnagan has a reputation for drawing superior performances from The Naples Players actors, who run the gamut from professional performers who used to be in Actors Equity to people whove never acted onstage before. A lot of people dont realize Ms. Dunnagan possesses an extremely good knack to determine whether this person can do what needs to be done, says Mr. Sorey. Weve got great talent; we just dont have that SEE DIRECTOR, C4 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYDallas Dunnagan has spent 16 years with The Naples Players. BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ newjazzpiecesPhilharmonic to workshop ARTISNAPLES HAS PARTNERED WITH THE JAZZ Composers Orchestra Institute to give local audiences a glimpse at how composers, conductors and musicians collaborate to create new works that test the limits of jazz and classical music. The institute worked with 34 composers last summer during an intensive where they studied new scores, compositional techniques, best practices in orchestration, notation, score preparation and contemporary performance. Of the 16 participants who put those skills to work in new compositions, four will workshop their pieces with the Naples Philharmonic and Assistant Conductor Yaniv Segal on Wednesday and Thursday, May 25-26, at ArtisNaples. The workshops, which are also referred to as readings, are free and open to the public. We were intrigued for a variety of reasons, David Filner, vice president of artistic operations at ArtisNaples, says about the chance to work with the institute. First, we have a commitment to jazz music and its something we feature in our Masterworks programming. But also, its an opportunity to let people from around the country come here and find out what a great orchestra we have here in Naples. The Jazz Composers Orchestra Institute is a program of the American Composers Orchestra.

Obsidian/NAL. 304 pages. Paperback, $7.99.The titles that comprise Lucy Burdettes Key West Food Critic Mysteries are always a delight. Her young protagonist, Hayley Snow, is one of those amateur sleuths who just cant help sticking her neck out. She is always sure the professionals are overlooking something, and her curiosity and desire to help gets her into trouble. Thank goodness, so far she has continued to find her way out of that trouble. While Hayleys personality is a major ingredient in the appeal of these novels, the quirky atmosphere of Key West is just as important to readers pleasure. Throw in the love of food, especially as enjoyed in good restaurants, and how can the recipe fail? It doesnt. This time out, we are witness to a series of events called Fantasy Fest parades for the most part leading up to Halloween festivities. The zombie theme has taken hold, and a king and queen have been selected to head the processions and other doings. The crowded streets of Key West are packed with costumed exhibitionists mimicking madness and mayhem. Moving along with the crowd, many of them repeatedly yelling zombie down, Hayley becomes aware of a woman who has indeed fallen. Its hard to tell if shes leaking real blood or fake blood from her costume. In fact, it is the same woman a rival for the queens crown who previously attacked Hayleys friend Danielle, the person anointed as festival queen. Before long, Danielle is being interrogated by the police, her moment of glory turned upside down. Sweet Danielle, Hayleys co-worker at Key Zest magazine, is suspected of murdering Caryn Druckman, the nasty zombie. This series is all about the various things Hayley tries to do at the same time. Aside from crime solving, she is working on her next restaurant review column for Key Zest. This time, she has chosen to review takeout establishments, some of which are food trucks and others that offer carryout from standard restaurants. Through these stories, the author allows readers to tour Key West and imaginatively savor tasty food. The stories, which include one involving a run-in with her boss at the magazine, also provide glimpses of Hayleys ongoing insecurities about keeping her job. Of course, any part of her life would find her scooting around Key West. She doesnt need an excuse. It just so happens that Hayleys mom and moms boyfriend, Sam, are about ready to tie the knot additional complications to Hayleys busy life, emotional and otherwise. Speaking of things marital (or almost), Hayleys ongoing/offgoing relationship with police detective Nathan Bransford keeps that strand of interest alive through this Monster Mash of danger and fun. Fans of the Key West Food Critic Mysteries series will enjoy being reunited with Hayleys friends, including Connie and Ray, Hayleys feisty houseboat mate Miss Gloria, Lieutenant Torrence, old friend Eric and many others. And there are new characters, like the face-painters Hayley meets, restaurateur wannabe Grant Monsarrat and several intriguing townies. There are others, too: the many pets beloved by Hayley and her acquaintances. I suppose Ms. Burdette needed one more twist, and she found it. A hurricane is barreling toward Key West, making the work of the police even more difficult than it would be on the tourist-packed island in fine weather. It certainly handicaps the murder investigation. The author is quite skillful at tracing the stages of the giant storm and its impact on Key West residents and visitors. Building upon the suspense already generated by the main plot line and its complications, this dreaded storm is one more tension-generator. The news is at cross-purposes about whether to hunker down or evacuate. We watch people make their individual decisions and preparations, and we feel the threat that they feel. For all of the negative excitement, Killer Takeout remains a loveable piece of escape fiction. Not only is Hayley so caring, shes surrounded most often by others who care sometimes too much. One more thing: dont miss the recipes at the back.

Her ability to be able to cast the various plays, as we raise the bar and do more and more difficult plays, has been incredible to see. As shes pushed actors to their maximum, he adds, Many of them have even surprised themselves, with some of the performances shes been able to engender from them Shes been able to make them even better than they thought they could be. When asked to name highlights from her tenure years with the company, Ms. Dunnagan tactfully demurs. Its all been pretty marvelous, she says. Im loathe to think something is better than something else. And everybody does a great job. I think weve had a strong 16 years. Its really on even footing right now, and I think its a good time to leave, she adds. It just feels like time for me. Mr. Sorey says Ms. Dunnagan has also been a key part of the theaters financial success. Its difficult to break even when you dont receive any local, city or county financial help, he says. Her being very capable on the business side has been fundamental. Shes a great lady and a great friend, says Mr. Sorey. We appreciate what shes done. Everybodys going to miss her.Florida Weekly spoke with some Naples Players about Ms. Dunnagan. Here are their comments, edited for space: Paul GraffyActor/director with The Naples Players for 15 years, former board member Dallas deserves thanks for all she has done for the entire theater community in Naples. The owners of both the former Naples Dinner Theatre and TheatreZone started locally with The Naples Players and created terrific companies. Dallas always felt there was an opportunity for multiple theaters in town, and she was right. She leaves big shoes to fill, and an awesome legacy. I have truly valued our friendship over the years and will always be grateful to have had what I consider a great supporter, mentor and colleague. I remember having the same conversation over and over again with her late mom, Peggy, over the years, about Dallas and her many accomplishments, and Peggys frustration in getting Dallas to acknowledge them. Anyone who knows Dallas knows how humble and private she is. Now, I hope, however briefly and privately, she can acknowledge all shes achieved. That she elevated The Naples Players game beyond what most had thought possible and paved the way for all the new professional/semiprofessional companies that were formed after she began her tenure at The Naples Players. Ann HooverActor with The Naples Players since 1986 Dallas always had her vision of whatever particular show she was doing, and she was able to convey that to her actors. Whenever she gave a compliment, you knew she really meant it. She wasnt real gushy, so consequently, when she gave you a compliment, you thought, Oh, Im doing the job she wants. I always found that to be a good kind of grounding for me. She was very hands-on as a director, and also as an artistic director. She was always at every audition. If you got cast, theres no doubt you probably had Dallass blessing, too, even if someone else was directing the show. She was very good at being there for the other directors. She would watch a rehearsal on occasion and would make suggestions, maybe a blocking suggestion. Sometimes you cant see the forest for the trees. She was more than willing to give suggestions, and I dont mean she expected a director to say, Oh yes, Madam Artistic Director. She would have good insight. Everybody always felt good about the fact that she was so hands-on and was there if you needed anything or had a question. Its sad to see somebody step down from the helm. You always wish the very best for them. The director is the unsung hero of any show. People come in, sit down, watch the show and think its just those five people or 30 people who have done it on their own. Thats not how it is. Charles FornaraResident music director for The Naples Players since 2007 Ive known Dallas for 25 years. My first show with her at The Naples Players was in 2004, Guys and Dolls. I was hired by the Hilton Head Playhouse for four summers between 1991-96 as an actor, and Dallas directed three of the shows while I was there. Oh my God, shes terrific. Boy, oh boy. She really sees the big picture. Her stage vision is extraordinary, and not merely creating pictures and tableaux and balance, but sort of three-dimensional stage vision as regards character arc and just complete control over everything thats going on to make it all work together extremely well. I know a lot of directors who can create beautiful stage pictures, but her ability goes beyond that. Shes been a good buddy for a long time. All the time Im struck by the coincidence of me working for her there (in Hilton Head), and when I showed up here at the Players, there she was! An unbelievable coincidence. She directs with patience and good communication. I dont think Ive ever seen her giving a line reading to an actor, telling them how to say a line. Shes so good at letting people find the truth in a scene or in a show. Shes flexible and allows people to find their own path to the character, but with guidance. Its such a collaborative process. The actor feels very much as if the actors discovering things, but maybe shes dropping clues along the way. You can really see her steering and herding actors in the proper direction. Shes a great colleague, super easy to work with. Im sure gonna miss her. Rhoda PughFormer stage manager, was with The Naples Players for 14 years She actually hired me over the phone from a recommendation from Craig Walck, who was the lighting director then. It was her first year also. We clicked right away, working-wise and as friends. We both came from old-school theater, summer stock, where you sort of go in and do it. We grew up in theater at the same time, just in different places. Her dad got them all started in theater. He would start theaters anywhere he went. It became the family business for her. She went to school and learned the basics of it, to back up what she knew. She used to spend her time reading scripts the way people would read books. It was what was around. It was nitty-gritty hard-working theater. Its a little easier now. She steered the ship. The Naples Players literally went from a little community theater to something where the production value and the greatness of the theater (were just incredible. That) came from her. She knew what actually goes into a production to make it better, to make everyone better. Hiring the right people, shes really good at that. And at casting, too, and at teaching other directors what our talent base is and how to bring people in. She oversees all of that. Shes just really good at everything she does. Dallas deserves mega praise; shes steered this ship quite well. Shes one of the biggest reasons the Players are looked upon so well. I think its one of the top community theaters in the country, both financially and production-wise. Shes made it one of the top. She doesnt do it in a vacuum; shes supported by the executive director, the board, the administrative staff, KidzAct. Dallas taught me so much about how to interact with people, about the theater. She made me better at my job. She did not micromanage. She stepped back and let me do my job. Shes there if you have questions or need help. I think thats brilliant: I hired you, now go and do it. She made me better for that. DIRECTORFrom page 1HOOVER FORNARA PUGH GRAFFY COURTESY PHOTODallas Dunnagan directs The Naples Players, who perform at Sugden Community Theatre.


NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 19-25, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 Call 239.649.2275 for Reservations 550 Port-O-Call Way, Naples, FL 34102O ering Daily Public CruisesSeabreeze Lunch, Dinner, Hors doeuvres A ernoon and Sunset SightseeingThe Best Events Are on the Water Boat and jet ski rentals also available at the marina! 5 5 Tuesday, May 24Todays Contemporary Hits with Brett Foreman ursday, May 26Wine Tasting with Naples Wine Collection ACO President Michael Geller says the program addresses two 21st century challenges within the orchestral community. First, Mr. Geller says, conductors have a difficult time with the traditional method of finding new music publishing houses because many composers today use the Internet and social media to self-publish and promote their work. Pulitzer Prize-winning composers selfpublish (on their websites), he adds. If you dont already know of them, then how are you finding those websites? Were swimming in this giant ocean of incredible new music and no one knows how to find a drink. The second challenge, Mr. Geller says, is while jazz music is widely considered Americas greatest cultural contribution, jazz musicians receive little training in incorporating its principals into a classical setting. Academic programs are more likely to steer them in the direction of big band arrangement rather than allow them to cross-pollinate with other genres, he explains. Its very much a challenge for jazz composers. My observation is that theyre some of the finest musicians anywhere, yet theres a gap in that composers who identify with jazz dont get the training in what it means to write for a traditional symphony orchestra. All these musicians need, he adds, is an extra step the kind of step the institute program is designed to provide. In addition to the Naples Philharmonic, participating orchestras around the country include the Columbus Symphony, the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, the Berkeley Symphony and the San Diego Symphony.What to expectSeattle-based Robin Holcomb is one of the composers who participated in last summers intensive and whose composition will be workshopped at Artis Naples. Ive been interested in writing for orchestra for a long time, Ms. Holcomb, who is also a librettist, pianist and singer/ songwriter, says. This program invites people from all stages of their career to apply and take what theyve already established and expand that for orchestra. We can benefit from people who have a similar eclectic background. This gave me an opportunity to write a piece that will be worked on and recorded and that could lead to more opportunities to do the same. The other composers coming to Artis Naples are Yvette Jackson of San Francisco, Sonia Jacobsen of Columbia, S.C., and Nathan Parker Smith of Brooklyn, N.Y. As part of last summers intensive, each of them wrote a 10-minute piece and received coaching from mentor composers as well as feedback from a music engraver. It was a real challenge to include in a score all the details I would usually communicate verbally, Ms. Holcomb says. Im looking forward to finding out how my music was correctly transmitted to the orchestra and what needs to change. The readings will give audience members a fascinating and rare look at how musicians and composers work together to fine tune a new work. This is not just for new music eggheads like me, the ACOs Mr. Geller says. We found that people who are very comfortable with classical repertoire get a lot out this. Often, people think new music is off-putting or scary and theyll find that nothing could be further from the truth. People will be delighted and captivated by this. While promoting its commitment to jazz, the Naples Philharmonic might very well also find fresh material to present its audiences in future concerts. We will be looking at the future and what kind of relationship we will have with the composers, Mr. Filner says. If they are great pieces, we will consider programming them. The readings take place at 2 p.m. Wednesday, May 25, and 7 p.m. Thursday, May 26, in Hayes Hall. The first session will introduce the works as they are finetuned by the composers, the orchestra and Mr. Segal, the conductor. The second session includes a touch-up rehearsal, final performance and a Q&A session with the composers and Mr. Segal. NEW JAZZFrom page 1 Above: Nathan Parker Smith is known for his aggressive musical style that blends European heavy metal, prog-rock and 20th century classical composition with group improvisation. He leads the 18-piece Nathan Parker Smith Large Ensemble and recently released his debut album titled Not Dark Yet. Right: Sonia Jacobsen strives to bridge the divide between classical and jazz with world music and contemporary rhythms. She has several prizes for her jazz compositions from organizations including the International Association of Jazz Educators and the American Composers Forum.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Feeling a bit listless? No wonder. You might be pushing too hard to finish everything on your to-do list. Cutting it down could help get your energy levels up.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although you would prefer to move forward at a steady pace, it might be a good idea to stop and reassess your plans.

On rare occasions, however, the intent is exactly the opposite, with the falsecard deliberately aimed at deceiving partner without trying to mislead declarer at all. Witness todays deal, where South wound up in four spades after East had overcalled in hearts. West led the eight of hearts, but instead of making the normal play of the jack at trick one the lowest card from equals by a defender not on lead East played the king! This violation of standard procedure by East was designed to create the impression in Wests mind that declarer had the queen of hearts. Easts purpose was to induce West to shift to another suit namely, clubs if West gained the lead. Declarer took the first trick with the ace of hearts, crossed to dummy with a diamond and tried a spade finesse. West won and, having credited South with the queen of hearts after the play to the first trick, naturally decided to look elsewhere for additional tricks. The only realistic possibility seemed to lie in clubs, so he shifted to the club ten, whereupon East took two clubs and a heart to set the contract one trick. Had East not intentionally deceived his partner at trick one, West might well have returned a second heart after taking the spade king. Declarer would then have made the contract, since East could collect no more than a heart and a club before South claimed the rest. But, as East hoped, his partner fell right into the trap he had so skillfully laid for him.

FILM CAPSULESThe Man Who Knew Infinity (Dev Patel, Jeremy Irons, Toby Jones) An Indian mathematics prodigy (Mr. Patel) challenges the establishment at Cambridge University during World War I. Mr. Irons is solid as the mentor, but as a whole the film doesnt add up to being more than a standard drama. Rated PG-13.Captain America: Civil War 1/2(Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson) Threatened with government supervision, the Avengers split allegiances between Team Captain America (Mr. Evans) and Team Iron Man (Mr. Downey Jr.). Its a legitimate dilemma the heroes face, the action is inspired and the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand in logical, smart ways. Rated PG-13.Green Room (Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Patrick Stewart) A terrible punk rock band is held captive by Skinheads and must figure out how to escape before theyre killed. You will not necessarily like the members of the band, but its a testament to writer/ director Jeremy Saulniers storytelling that you nonetheless root for them to survive. Patrick Stewart is especially chilling as the Skinhead leader. Rated R.The Jungle Book (Neel Sethi, Voices of Bill Murray, Idris Elba) Man-cub Mowgli (young Mr. Sethi) is raised by wolves in the jungle, but is forced to flee when a tiger (Ms. Elba) threatens to kill him. Its visually dazzling but the story is thin, and superfluous characters make the movie tedious rather than engaging. Rated PG.The Huntsman: Winters War 1/2(Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt) With Evil Queen Ravenna (Ms.. Theron) dead, the Huntsman (Mr. Hemsworth) has to retrieve the magic mirror before Ravennas ice queen sister Freya (Ms. Blunt) gets her heartless cold hands on it. It often lacks logic and suspense, but the story is just smart enough in its broadest strokes to make this genuinely entertaining. Rated PG-13.City Of Gold (Jonathan Gold, Roy Choi, David Chang) The story is unfocused in this documentary about Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold and his influence on Los Angeles. Not only that, but Mr. Golds personality isnt interesting enough to warrant following him for 90 minutes. Rated R.My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, Lainie Kazan) Toula (Ms. Vardalos) and Ian (Mr. Corbett) have trouble connecting while her parents (Ms. Kazan and Michael Constantine) realize their wedding was never official. Its a delight to see this crazy family back on the big screen, and just as funny as it was when the original was a box office hit in 2002. Rated PG-13.Hello, My Name Is Doris (Sally Field, Max Greenfield, Tyne Daly) Sixty-something Doris (Ms. Field) falls for her 20-something (Mr. Greenfield) co-worker. Ms. Field makes Doris so endearing and likeable that we easily look past her characters un-thought-out desires. Its a cute movie. Rated R.

YesWith so many comedies wasting our time with predictable gags and unfunny desperation, The Nice Guys is a breath of fresh air: A crass and creative work that dares to be different and exceeds expectations. If you enjoy fresh, original efforts from two of Hollywoods biggest stars, this is a must see. Of all the things that can be faked in a movie, chemistry is not one of them. Often co-leads are serviceably compatible onscreen, though sometimes their seething mutual hatred is palpable (Fifty Shades Of Grey). And at other times, as is the case here, magic happens. Seeing Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling interact is like watching two old friends banter with uncanny familiarity, and more than anything love the others company. Theyve never worked together before, but I daresay they will work together again. Of course, it takes mutual respect for them to play off one another so well. Gosling is Holland March, a private eye in 1977 Los Angeles whos anything but a tough guy, and certainly not nice (the title is ironic, in case youre wondering). At one point he asks his 13 year-old daughter, the precocious Holly (Angourie Rice), if hes a bad guy, and she doesnt hesitate to reply in the affirmative. And yet we like him anyway because hes funny, sympathetic, and played with charm by Gosling. We soon like Holland even more when he teams up with muscle man Jackson Healy (Crowe) to find a missing girl named Amelia (Margaret Qualley). For an idea of Jacksons personality, early on he describes marriage as buying a house for someone you hate. Soon after, a flashback shows him getting dumped by his wife in the most shocking way you can imagine (get your mind out of the gutter it happens over dinner). So you guessed it: Holland and Jackson are lowlifes, but they deserve each other. And we love watching them together. Theres a scene in which they go up an elevator in the hope of retrieving the films MacGuffin. They reach their floor and hear commotion. In perfect unison they look left to see someone choking to death, right to see someone shot, and quietly retreat back into the elevator to head back down. They then continue to be in tune as they look out the elevator window to see a body fall to the ground. Given the gravity of the situation, and that their movements and facial expressions are synchronized in a whimsical, oh hell no! type of way, its obvious these guys arent heroes, they just want to do the right thing and live to brag about it. If only The Nice Guys was more consistently funny, this would really be something. Alas, there are lags in the story and humor, and the middle section of writer/director Shane Blacks (Iron Man 3) tale drags when it should continue to sizzle. However, enough of the humor in Blacks script (co-written by Anthony Bararozzi) is so darkly funny and crisp that it feels like a welcome change from most run-of-the-mill socalled comedies, and thats enough to make it a movie you will not want to miss. >> Black is currently working on a sequel to Predator (1987); production is expected to begin this fall with a March 2018 release planned. a t t q h b w dan The Only Naples Restaurant Where Fresh Seafood is Flown in Daily From New England! 4221 East Tamiami Trail, Naples Not responsible for typographical errors.

I feel that was an unfortunate way to handle answering that question. They might as well just cancel the show than screw it up the way they are doing, and Castle fans are furious about this situation. I and many others I know feel like good, well-written, well-acted shows get canceled, while embarrassing reality shows continue. I know it wont do any good sending this to you, nor will it change television programing, but if no one ever speaks up, then things definitely will not change and will continue in a downward spiral. Lou Ann P., Preston, Conn.A: I, too, have read reports of sources say Stana was forced out because she and Nathan Fillion didnt get along and that they were made to go to couples counseling. However, all of these reports, while they may be true, are not backed up by credible, nonanonymous sources or from either of the horses mouths. A lot of entertainment magazines/websites/columns will report on unconfirmed rumors, no matter how plausible or reliable, without backup from dependable sources, which should include the actors themselves. In that way, I do believe that journalistic integrity has gone vastly downhill. I realize that by stating this I have broken my self-imposed journalistic rule, but I wanted to be able to explain how I feel. I can tell you that Cindy the Castle fan truly is dismayed by this. I love the show and everyone involved. Tamala Jones departure also is sad I love the character of Lanie. Having personally interviewed Tamala, Nathan and Jon Huertas, I feel like they are all good people, and I wish only the best for them and the show. Hopefully season nine wont jump the shark too much.

KOVELS: ANTIQUESVintage, painted iron sprinklers can shower collectors with cash BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELUnusual vintage figural garden sprinklers have become expensive objects wanted by technology and gardening enthusiasts. The first sprinklers were invented after the 1870s. Water was saved in a large rooftop water tank and could be delivered to a fire with the pressure created by letting the water fall down into the hose. At first sprinklers and hoses were only available for public buildings, then farms, then public landscaping. About 1900, lawn sprinklers were available in fanciful shapes. Many of the iron sprinklers were made by the same companies that made doorstops, hardware, bookends or even fountains. Early painted iron sprinklers in excellent condition shaped like a mermaid, frog, monkey, turtle, alligator, squirrel, rancher with a lasso or a duck can sell for over $1,000. During the past five years, an iron monkey sprinkler auctioned for $9,000 and a mermaid for $8,000. A 13-inch-high English wood duck painted in original colors and marked Nuydea, Patent D-8 3091 is for sale at Frank & Barbara Pollacks American Antiques & Art store in Highland Park, Ill. Prices have come down a little, but those with original paint are expensive unless it is a lucky find at a garage sale. Q: I have had a cookie jar shaped like W.C. Fields for about 35 years. There are no markings on the bottom, so I dont know who made it. Its never been used and is like brand new. The cookie jar is about 11 inches to the top of the cover and 7 inches wide. Id like to know what its worth. A: Your cookie jar was made by McCoy Pottery in Roseville, Ohio. The company made cookie jars from about 1940 until the pottery closed in 1990. Its W.C. Fields cookie jar was made from 1972 to 1974. The company called it a snack jar. Most McCoy cookie jars are marked, but some, like yours, are not. Cookie jar collecting became enormously popular in the late 1980s after Andy Warhols collection of 175 cookie jars sold at Sothebys in 1988 for more than $240,000. Many vintage jars that sold for hundreds of dollars during the 1990s can now be had for a fraction of their former price. In the late 1990s, W.C. Fields cookie jars sold from $700 to $950. Now, while presale estimates can be as much as $350, they sell for under $100. Q: I have an old 32-ounce silver-plated coffee pot with the TWA logo etched on the side. The name International Silver Co. is marked on the bottom. After seeing the movie Aviator about Howard Hughes and his connection to the airline, I was wondering what its value is as a collectible. A: TWA was in business from 1925 until 2001. It became TWA in 1930 when Transcontinental Air Transport and Western Air Express merged. Howard Hughes held controlling interest in the airline from 1939 until 1965. The company filed for bankruptcy in 2001 and was bought by American Airlines. There are collectors who specialize in airline collectibles. Coffee pots like this are listed for sale online for $25 to $50. Q: How much is a Raggedy Ann doll in the original box worth? Printed on the box is Knickerbockers Original Raggedy Ann Doll, Style No. 0001 and Character created by Johnny Gruelle, Knickerbocker Toy Co., Middlesex, N.J., Made in Taiwan. The box isnt in perfect condition, but the doll appears to be in good shape with the original clothes. A: Raggedy Ann dolls, based on stories by Johnny Gruelle (1880-1938), have been made for almost 100 years. Mr. Gruelle received a design patent for Raggedy Ann in 1915. The Knickerbocker Toy Co. made the dolls from 1963 to 1982. The company started in Albany, N.Y., and moved to Middlesex, N.J., in 1968. The box proves your doll is not very old, because it mentions New Jersey and Taiwan. The original dolls were made in the U.S. A 15-inch tall No. 0001 sold recently online for $70. Q: We have a 1950s Kodak Brownie 8 mm movie projector. Is there any value to it? Does anyone collect projectors? A: Kodak invented the Standard 8 film format in 1932. It ushered in the era of home movies for amateur filmmakers. Both 8 mm cameras and projectors were affordable and widespread by the 1950s. The Brownie 8 mm Movie Camera was introduced in 1951, and the Brownie 8 Movie Projector was added in 1952. It was compact, lightweight and fully automatic, and it had about a 200-foot reel capacity for 15 minutes of viewing. It sold for about $55. Collectors of vintage cameras and projectors can be found online. But Kodak Brownie projectors were made in large quantities and dont sell for more than about $45 to $75.

The Hours: 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Saturday The Details: Ive been eyeballing Chicken Salad Chicks new storefront at Riverchase Plaza for a good six weeks so was excited to see an invitation to preview their menu arrive in my inbox. Very few things make me so happy in life as a good chicken salad, and while I make a mean one myself, I was very curious to see how professionals would do with an entire menu based on the Southern specialty. I ordered a scoop of the Fancy Nancy salad that contained chopped pecans, seedless grapes and Fuji apples; it came with fruit salad, pickle and a cookie on the side.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Incas Kitchen, Pavilion Shopping Center, 8955 U.S. 41, Naples; 631-5954 The Peruvian food conjured up by chef/owner Rafael Rottiers is so good no one minded traveling to Golden Gate for it, but now he's opened a stylish Naples establishment as well. The second Incas has an ambience similar to the original, with warm earth tones and Peruvian art. And the food is equally stellar. A Piscojito (made with Peruvian pisco liquor) goes well with any of the 11 varieties of ceviche and seven types of tiradito (a Peruvian style sashimi). Mancora sea bass with quinoa, scallops, mussels and clams tasted as good as it looked. A 10-ounce tenderloin with spicy red sauce and tri-colored potatoes will satisfy any carnivore. Dont skip dessert have whatever sweet features the caramel-flavored lucama fruit. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2014 Lapas Costa Rican Bistro, 26251 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 221-7016 Costa Rica means rich coast in Spanish, but when it comes to the republics food, the adjectives that come to mind tend toward the less aspirational. Think rustic, humble, uncomplicated. In addition to the expected homespun empanadas, tacos and arroz con pollo, youll find more ambitious creations such as citrus-laced ceviche, chile rellenos stuffed with sweet corn and meat, and a few fish entrees with tropically themed sauces. The ceviche was strewn with onions, tomatoes and fresh cilantro, along with diced avocado, giving this dish great flavor and unexpected creamy texture. The Chirripo chicken was draped in a light, slightly sweet stew of tomatoes, corn and other vegetables. Similar to paella, the arroz con camarones contained a generous amount of large, succulent shellfish along with peas, corn and diced red peppers. With large portions and sides of mild black beans of creamy rice, Lapas makes certain you wont go home hungry. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2015 The Local, 5323 Airport-Pulling Road, Naples; 596-3276 This restaurants name aptly describes its mission: to serve as much farmand sea-to-table food as can be procured locally. Run by chef/owner Jeff Mitchell, a Culinary Institute of America alum, The Local has a creative menu, an unfussy setting and a friendly and accommodating staff. The menu changes frequently, depending on what products are available. If they are offered, Id recommend starting with the Pine Island clams in red curry. Sweet and spicy, redolent of basil and studded with scallions, the sauce is good enough to drink on its own. Pan-seared triggerfish was expertly cooked, enhanced by a mango and avocado salsa. Mustard-roasted allnatural Joyce Farms free-range chicken breast with mustard breadcrumbs, softboiled egg and pecorino sauce was an imaginative way to dress up poultry. From the side dish choices, we liked the blackened potatoes, the sweet potato cake and the roasted beets with shallots and sherry vinegar. Save room for dessert everything is homemade. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2015 Ridgway Bar & Grill, Third Street South and 13th Avenue South, Naples; 262-5500 Chef/owner Tony Ridgway has been offering great food and service in stylish setting for 37 years at a variety of top-notch restaurants. Ridgway Bar & Grill combines some of the best features of all that came before (Truffles, Chefs Garden and Villa Pescatore, among them). The garden from Chefs Garden is still splendid. The wine list is exemplary. All the baked goods are made in house including the breads served as a prelude to the meal. A goat-cheese tart with ratatouille was superb and big enough to share. Mussels arrived in a hot cast-iron skillet and were perfectly done in a flavorful broth. Whether you want chicken potpie or pan-roasted Florida shrimp with a sweet corn grit cake, Scottish salmon filet with braised lentil and leeks, a simple steak or a vegetable plate selected from 13 options, its all available. For dessert, the Truffles carrot cake is always a good bet. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2014 Veranda E, Escalante Hotel, 290 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 325-3474 A secret garden hidden just off bustling Fifth Avenue South, Veranda E is an outstanding establishment serving creative food in a lush, subtropical setting. When the weather is good, reserve a table in the courtyard where tables are dressed in white linens and overlook the hotels pool. Do not miss the Veranda E calamari, a dish that might have ruined me for all other calamari preparations. Done kung pao style, its tenderized and breaded, fried to a golden brown and topped with peanuts, peppers, chives and a spicy-sweet sauce. Also good were the Gulf shrimp with white stone ground corn grits and Creole bacon sauce, salad with Asian pear, Humboldt Fog cheese, organic baby greens and walnut vinaigrette, Hawaiian salmon with strawberry-basil relish and verjus rouge, boneless beef short ribs and house-made lemon ginger ice cream with fresh berries. Chef Bryan Sutton knows his way around the kitchen, and he also has a thriving organic garden from which he plucks herbs and veggies. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere Reviewed October 2014

CUISINE NEWSA second, more spacious location serves The Crust wellIts hard to figure out how The Crusts original location at the Pavilion Shopping Center didnt simply burst at the seams from all the love it received from the loyal following it quickly developed after opening in the summer of 2014. So even though its second location is just a couple of minutes from the first, this much-bigger version about four times the size of the original is doing a booming business. Theres no secret to what makes this Midwest-style pizza joint such a hit: The staff is uniformly pleasant and efficient, clearly working as a team to ensure that customers are attended to quickly and well. The dining room is kept extremely clean, with tables cleared and reset as soon as they are vacated. And the food is great and inexpensive. The space formerly occupied by Big Als, Hops and, briefly, Tavern West is a large one with an open kitchen and the potential for mind-numbing volume and a cafeteria atmosphere. But owners George and Laura Kanellopoulos have done a great job of ensuring theres plenty of sound absorption in the ceilings and with numerous upholstered booths so that even when the room is full, which it was the night of our visit, while there was noise, it wasnt deafening. My companion and I had no trouble speaking at regular volume across a good-sized booth. A large bar in the middle of the room does a good job of breaking up the space as well and, judging from the number of people occupying seats there, its a popular place to dine and enjoy a beer or glass of wine. We arrived at 6:30 p.m. on a Saturday and were told wed likely have a 20to 25-minute wait. (We heard the hostess tell a few parties that arrived after us and faced longer wait times that they might want to try the other location, where there was less of a crowd.) With nowhere else to go that evening, we were fine with waiting. It turned out to be about 10 minutes instead, and we were shown to a booth that could easily seat six. Table settings are basic no placemats or tablecloths. Plastic plates, paper napkins, forks and knives come in a stack when you sit down. Thats just one way the staff is able to turn tables so quickly. Our very busy server arrived within a few minutes to take a drink order. We skipped the beer and wine and headed straight for the retro sodas. Suck down all the high-fructose Coke and Sprite you like in the fountain drinks; we went for the classics: Dr. Pepper and Orange Crush ($2.50 each) made with real sugar and served in glass bottles. I had forgotten how good a soda can be. These were just sweet enough and the sugar didnt overpower the other flavors. You have three choices for food at The Crust: salads, subs and pizzas. We started with side salads (they all come in entre portions, too). The house salad ($6 for a side, $9 as an entre) was full of fresh Romaine, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, Kalamata olives and provolone. It was very lightly dressed with housemade Champagne vinaigrette. In fact, wed have preferred a more assertive dressing and more of it. Id say the same about the Caesar ($5 for a side, $8 for an entree), with its mix of Romaine, slender strips of Parmesan cheese, pizza-crust croutons and a very mild Caesar dressing. The subs Italian, meatball, veggie, ham and baked chicken looked large, hot and delicious as servers whisked them past us, but we both gravitated to the interesting varieties of pizzas that take up the front page of the menu. Choose from 10-, 13or 16-inch pies or a 12-inch gluten-free version. There are six specialty pizzas for which you cant modify the ingredients, but you are welcome to craft your own from the 30 toppings available (pesto, smoked gouda, jalapenos, cilantro and three kinds of olives, among them). I went for a 10-inch specialty pizza, the BBQ ($13), which our server said was her favorite. It contained smoky barbecue sauce, provolone, smoked gouda, roasted chicken, red onions and cilantro atop a thin, crisp crust served on a cardboard disk. It was hearty and delicious. My companions 10-inch held mushrooms, Kalamata olives and basil as well as marinara sauce and there was plenty of everything on it. Both were cut in squares, a partystyle cut thats apparently popular in the Midwest. While it seemed strange to this East Coaster who has eaten triangular slices her whole life, I have to concede it made it easier to handle. The Crusts website states proudly that it is the pizza crust that makes these pies so special, and I will have to agree that they were indeed first-rate. With excellent ingredients on top, the result was a top-notch pie. Our dinner took a mere hour from arrival to finish, and yet we didnt feel rushed at any time throughout our meal. At about $22 per person, it was one of the least expensive dinners weve had in Naples of late as well. The Crust is a winner. For a slice of heaven at a down-to-earth price, give it a try.

YOUR GUIDE TO NEW HOME COMMUNITIES IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA The first homes have closed and residents are moving into Hidden Harbor, Stock Developments latest success story in Southwest Florida. Hidden Harbor is a 55-acre, amenityrich boating community situated between Naples and Fort Myers. Stock Signature Homes has 76 coastal contemporary estate homes, most of which provide access to the Gulf of Mexico by way of the Ten Mile Canal and Estero Bay. According to Claudine Lger-Wetzel, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Stock Development, the first residents are James and Lori Shaffer. Originally from Chicago, James is retired and Lori is an executive with a clothing retailer. We love it here. It is a gem of a place, said Mr. Shaffer. We bring friends and family back here and the first thing they say is that it is wonderful and they havent seen anything quite like it. The Shaffers were the first residents to sign a new home contract in Hidden Harbor and said they are extremely pleased. We are very happy with Stock Development. From the sales to construction, the team has been terrific, said Shaffer. When we signed the contract, they told us when they would start our home and when they would complete it. They were right about both and that means a lot. The Shaffers will soon have a brand new clubhouse to enjoy when it makes its debut in June. This wonderful amenity, along with beautifully furnished models and new floorplans, is fueling new sales, including two furnished models that sold for more than $1 million each. Stock is finalizing construction on a new furnished model. The Anastasia has 2,913 square feet under air. This threebedroom, three and one-half bath home has a great room, a formal dining room, and a study. With the covered lanai, two-car garage and single-car garage, the home offers 4,220 total square feet. The Anastasia is situated on a beautiful waterfront homesite with stunning western views across the harbor. It will feature an interior design by Kelli Smith of the awardwinning Kelli Interior Design Studio. The new model is scheduled to debut in June. A total of 12 floorplans are offered at Hidden Harbor with inventory homes available. In an exciting new development, we have just added three new floorplans priced from just the mid-$400s, providing even more options for homebuyers, said Lger-Wetzel. These plans will feature the same beautiful Contemporary Coastal architecture as our original plans and the community clubhouse. These three and four bedroom homes feature from 2,327 to more than 3,100 square feet of living area. Stock Development is currently offering homebuyers at Hidden Harbor a free pool or up to $ 50,000 towards options. Hidden Harbor residents may boat, kayak and canoe directly from their personal boat dock. The private harbor is a sport fishermans paradise and a haven for manatees and provides access to The Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail, a 190-mile marked canoe and kayak trail that meanders through the coastal waters and inland tributaries of Lee County, Florida. Local fishing expert, Garret Farmer, says residents will be pleased with the fishing. The common species we have in the backwaters of Estero Bay and the surrounding creeks include snook, trout, redfish, tarpon, sheepshead, sharks, snapper, jacks and black drum. said Farmer. The canal from Hidden Harbor ranges anywhere from 2-3 feet to 6-8 feet, depending on the tide and is navigable by pontoon, bay, deck, or flats boat. Stock has purchased a pontoon so prospective homebuyers can tour the serene waters and experience the fish and wildlife that is part of the Hidden Harbor lifestyle. With its beautifully designed homes and a clubhouse overlooking the Gulf-access harbor, Hidden Harbor earned the 2015 Community of the Year award from the Lee Building Industry Association (BIA). All of the homesites are located just a short stroll from the 4,484 square foot community clubhouse, which will be situated on a premium waterfront site at the entrance to the harbor. The clubhouse will begin construction this year. The interior of the clubhouse fitness center will be equipped with new stateof-the art equipment, a comfortably furnished lounge area and a club room will be available for social events. Outside will be a resort style pool with a fire pit, a barbeque area and a beautifully furnished sundeck. There will also be a kayak launch and open green space to enjoy the beautiful Southwest Florida weather. It will feature waterfront views from two sides. Hidden Harbor also offers convenient access to Southwest Floridas finest beaches on Sanibel Island or Fort Myers Beach via road or boat. Nearby are excellent shopping and dining opportunities, as well as several of Southwest Floridas major entertainment venues. We were happy when we made the decision to purchase a home here and we are even more happy now that we are moved in, said Mr. Shaffer. The on-site sales center is located at 17270 Hidden Estates Circle. From I-75, use exit 128 and travel west on Alico Road. Turn south on US 41.

Find your perfect fit at Raffia PreserveWhen something fits perfectly, it feels right. Whether they are swimming at the resort-style pool, working out in the state-of-the-art fitness center, enjoying play dates at the playground, or sharing stories fireside in the clubroom at the end of a relaxing day, residents at Raffia Preserve often find that feeling is an experience they share in common. A Warm WelcomeBob and Kay DeTeso recognized that feeling during their first visit to Raffia Preserve. Now, a little more than a year later, the DeTesos are enjoying life as residents in one of WCI Communities North Naples communities. The first residents to move into Raffia Preserve in late 2014, the DeTesos considered a half dozen communities when looking for a Naples home. Kay said once they saw the variety of home designs and learned about the reasonable HOA fees at Raffia Preserve, they knew it was the right fit for their new easygoing Southwest Florida lifestyle. The DeTesos relish being Raffia Preserves first residents. Were like pioneers, Bob laughed. The DeTesos will make Raffia Preserve their full-time home this year as they complete the transition from their Massachusetts residence to their new three-bedroom, two-bath Egret Executive Home. They also are looking forward to hosting visiting family from up North. Were only minutes from the beach! said Kay. The DeTesos are already taking advantage of the 7,400-square-foot community clubhouse and resort-style pool. WCI completed Raffia Preserves amenities early so new homeowners can experience ample opportunities to share an active, social lifestyle with their neighbors. The clubhouse events have been a great way to meet people, and were starting yoga classes soon, said Kay. Everyone is so warm and friendly. Bob said that becoming a Raffia Preserve homeowner was a pleasure. WCI left no question unanswered, and I had a lot of questions, he said. We felt included in the process, with the sales team sending us construction update photos in between our Naples visits. The homes at Raffia Preserve are beautiful and well-constructed, said Bob. I would recommend WCI to anyone! Room to GrowThe Prasad family moved from St. Louis to Naples five years ago. But as the children grew, so did the familys need for more space. Our house initially seemed fine, with four bedrooms and 2,500 square feet, said Lisa Prasad. But as our kids start heading into the teenage years, we knew we would need more room for our active family. So the hunt began! Lisa started her search online and narrowed the list to communities in the convenient area of Naples she knew she already loved for its proximity to great schools and easy shopping. Last fall, the Prasads visited Raffia Preserve for the first time. We were first attracted by the location its close to everything, yet tucked away, she said. Our Community Representative really took the time to listen to my needs, said Lisa. There was no pressure whatsoever it was fantastic. The Prasads selected a Pelican Executive Home. With four bedrooms, three baths, den and powder room, the 3,604 square-foot Pelican is particularly popular with families who need plenty of room. Lisa especially likes the privacy afforded by the homes two-story design, in which bedrooms are situated upstairs, away from the main living area. I love the wide hallways and the bright, open feel of the second floor, she said. The loft is the designated kid hangout space for studying and playing video games, and we use the great room together as a family. Lisa said knowing the Raffia Preserve clubhouse was ready and waiting made it easier to make the move. Its great WCI was thinking ahead that it would be important to have a place for neighbors to meet, she added. Raffia Preserves lifestyle director organizes great community activities I appreciate how she makes us feel connected. Its exciting to see the neighborhood taking shape, with families and children of all ages, she said. Offering only 363 single-family homes, Raffia Preserve emphasizes outdoor living within a 184-acre Southwest Florida setting of palm trees, nature preserves and lakes. Raffia Preserve offers 13 oneand two-story Executive Home and Estate designs that include granite-countertop kitchens with freestanding islands, stainless steel appliances and 18-by18-inch ceramic tile flooring in select rooms.

Homebuyers gravitating to Naples Squares unique valueWith 73 completed Phase I residences sold out, a choice selection of Phase II residences remaining, and five Phase III reservations already processed, the appeal of Naples Squares amenity-rich walkable lifestyle continues to attract homebuyers. Situated at a prized downtown Naples location, Naples Square is being developed by the award-winning Ronto Group at the corner of 5th Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road. The community is bringing cohesion to downtown by connecting 5th Avenue South to Bayfront with access via a redesigned segment of 3rd Avenue South between 10th Street and Goodlette-Frank Road within Naples Square. The communitys location, amenities, an assortment of light-filled open concept floor plans, luxurious finishes, and a price point unmatched anywhere else downtown provide an exceptional value. As the communitys residents are discovering, Naples Square puts every downtown attraction within a short walk or bike ride. Residents are taking advantage of downtowns combination of expansive beaches, eclectic shopping and gallery venues, eateries, and latenight gathering places, including attractions on 5th Avenue South and Third Street, and at Bayfront and Tin City. Naples Squares immediate proximity to all things downtown and the secured under-building parking that is included with every residence offer a measure of convenience that owners especially appreciate during season. In addition to relishing their immediate, walkable access to all of downtown, Naples Squares residents are enjoying the communitys elegantly finished common areas, rich assortment of amenities, and visual appeal. Naples-based Renee Gaddis Interiors has designed the communitys common areas to include a neutral color palette of greys, beiges, browns, and slight aqua accents. The first floor elevator lobbies include terrazzo floors. Tile flooring with a wood look is featured in the upper floor elevator lobbies to create a less commercial and more residential ambiance. Naples Square offers a diverse assortment of amenities to enhance its coveted downtown living experience. Residents are enjoying a professionally designed fitness center with state-of-the-art strength and cardio equipment. A second fitness center will be included in Phase III.

Naples Square is staffed by a professional management team that includes full-time maintenance and housekeeping personnel. The landscaped streetscapes, amenity courtyards, and fountain features that have already become Naples Squares signature were designed by Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design, Inc. The impact of the design evokes feelings of familiarity and a sense of place rarely found when walking or biking through urban building corridors. The streetscapes are lined with palms interspersed with flower beds, strips of green, and landscaped areas separating the sidewalks and buildings. The fountains at the roundabouts have a cooling effect. Intersections, crossings, and building entries are identified by palms. Construction of 73 Phase II residences continues to move forward on schedule for completion in first quarter, 2017, a timeframe that will allow Phase II residents to enjoy their new homes during the 2017 season.

Kalea Bays spectacular clubhouse reaches construction MilestoneTower reaches 14th floor Kalea Bays clubhouse has been under construction since January and has reached a milestone as construction crews carefully place the trusses on the roof. The progress on the 88,000-square-foot clubhouse can be seen from Vanderbilt Drive, as passersby slow down to take a look and marvel at the social and recreational centerpiece of the luxury high-rise community. When completed our clubhouse will surely be the envy of every community in the Naples area, said Inga Wilson, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. Kalea Bays clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It 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. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity many of our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Wilson. Rather than putting their guests up in hotels throughout the Naples and Bonita Springs area, they can vacation within the community. Its a real convenience. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. Three of the best beaches in the country are only minutes away from Kalea Bay, stated Wilson. Construction on the clubhouse is slated for completion in the summer of next year. At that time CID Design Group, a progressive, second-generation interior design company based in Naples, will begin to transform the building into an incredible centerpiece which will complement the communitys modern seaside, villa-style architecture, accented with the charm of old Florida. CID Design Group has in its possession reclaimed wood from the recent Naples Pier reconstruction, both original wood and from the renovation after the historic Hurricane Donna of 1960, stated Jenn Zella, Principal and Director of Design for the firm. We have plans to integrate the reclaimed wood as design elements within the clubhouse, which will give the historic pieces new life and a new purpose which will enjoyed by residents and their visitors for years to come. Approximately the same time construction is completed on the clubhouse, Kalea Bays first residents should also be moving into their new homes. Currently, construction crews are working on the 14th floor of the 22-story residential tower. 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 threebedrooms plus den and threeand-a-half baths, have 3,835 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/ four-bath plans with 3,921 total square feet. Wilson said dramatic views are available to every single resident, no matter which floor they live on. The towers amenities are located on the rooftop, explained Wilson, including 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. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center. It is located on Vanderbilt Drive, two-tenths of a mile north of Wiggins Pass Road in North Naples.
