Naples ranked ninth best small town in America

Naples was named the ninth best small town in America by Smithsonian Magazine.

The magazine's May edition cited Naples' world-class music, arts, design, community theater, zoo — and of course weather — in its ranking.

"Even when it's snowing somewhere up north, around the historic Naples Pier they're catching mackerel, opening beach umbrellas and looking for treasure in the surf," said the article listing the 20 best small towns in America. "Grandkids are building sand castles, pelicans are squawking and the Gulf of Mexico is smooth as far as the eye can see."

Topping the list is Great Barrington, Mass., where big-city smarts meets New England natural in an art-rich mountain setting.Best Small Town

Comedian Bill Maher brings his brand of funny to Fort Myers on Sunday, April 29'You know, they just have to admit, Republicans are funny.' -- Bill Maher

Bill Maher performs at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 29 at Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers. Tickets are $42, $52, $62 and $72. Call 239-481-4849 or online at bbmannpah.com.

Comedian and talk show host Bill Maher promises audiences one thing if they attend his April 29 stand-up show at Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers.

"They can expect to laugh their ass off," Maher chortled. "This is stand-up comedy. We're not fooling around here!"

He promises ninety minutes to two hours of topical humor and "everything that's been going on in this country that deserves to be laughed at."

While he's often perceived as a liberal, Maher says he's not a Democrat.

"The Democrats are no prize, no prize at all." Maher insists. "But for crying out loud, if you vote for a Republican these days, its like saying 'gee I'm not that happy with our babysitter, tonight let's just leave the kids on the road!'
