Your home deserves the very best care, TotalCare.To learn more, give us a call us at 239-598-2007 or visit us at www.TotalCareNaples.com Much has been made of the free press hot fires, cold gruel and inky-tasting fried fish, to name a few. Remember the old joke thats true? Newspapers make good fish-wrap. Theyre also a good filler for just about anything. Manys the time the daily news has kept a homeless soul from freezing to death on a winter night, either stuffed into sleeves and pant legs for insulation, or twisted into ink-stained ropes and dropped in a barrel fire. Thats no joke, Ive seen it. When I went up to journalism school in New York City at the ripe age of 39 or 40, wondering what Id done to be granted admission to Columbia University (it wasnt by demonstrating a lot of brains, I can assure you of that; probably a clerks error), I moved onto west 125th Street, near the Hudson River. Some good old boys, Harlem style, used to hang around the riverfront by the warehouses under the West Side Highway overpass, to fish and drink. I liked them. In another life they would have made good journalists, because they were irreverent, fiercely independent and unconcerned about the opinions of their fellow man. Or woman. Or journalism student. When they got cold when they required a fire or fish-wrap or even toilet paper they resorted to newspapers, no matter what aspiring, fancy-pants journalist happened to be watching. They were, in short, a lot like some of the greatest American journalists, both better or lesser known. Finley Peter Dunne, for example. Mr. Dunne, the son of Irish-Catholic immigrants to Chicago, was a sharp social commentator and humorist who spent his career writing for papers in the Windy City and in New York. Never underestimate the serious nature of a humorist. Mr. Dunne put the proverbial hammer to the anvil, forging the most singular and precise truth ever to define the finest American journalism: Comfort the afflicted, and afflict the comfortable, he said. In newspapers, a lot of things happen. But the best of those things is the effort to right wrongs, to redress and balance inequities, to champion the weak or ignorant when the stronger and knowing take advantage of them, which is pretty much all the time. And that requires afflicting the comfortable. My friends under the overpass knew that as well as they knew anything and of course they knew something else Mr. Finley once said: Alcohol is necessary for a man so that he can have a good opinion of himself, undisturbed by the facts. But never mind that now. In Florida, there are still plenty of folks like the ones I knew in New York City poor people, for lack of a better word. But not just poor people; poor glorious people. Poor powerful people. Poor people, and not so poor people, and any other people. All of them own the kingdom and can answer to the title, boss. And every one of whom holds the reins and wields the power. And why? Because they own the government, although many might not realize to what extent. The government answers to them not just at the voting booth, which a lot of young people have ignored as ineffectual from time to time, but in the matter of open records and transparent actions by elected or appointed officials. This is what all good newspaper people know. This is what reporters rely upon to do their jobs correctly: open records. Government in the sunshine. Florida pioneered the best of open-government laws. It started in the Sunshine State in 1909, with the insistence of the legislature (another bunch of good old boys) that citizens be able to see the records of elected and appointed officials. Any citizens, including those who might have to stuff their trousers with newspapers. And any officials, including those who are stuffed shirts, and dont want to fork over the records of their behavior. Those good old boys branded Florida law like they branded their tough rangy cows with the unmistakable, inarguable and prominently visible policy of Florida Statute 119.01, the General State Policy on Public Records. It goes like this: It is the policy of this state that all state, county and municipal records are open for personal inspection and copying by any person. Providing access to public records is a duty of each agency. The next great public defense of power-to-the-people came 58 years later, in 1967, with Floridas Government-in-theSunshine law, Statute 286. Thats a doozy, too, a real hobble to those who would hoard power and ignore the afflicted, or just use them up. But Ill have to get to that another time. I like to harken back to the year 1909 not only because the state legislature understood so well what can ring freedoms bell (afflicting the comfortable, frequently), but because another great American journalist and one of journalisms most trustworthy critics died. Its as if Mark Twain passed the baton to the Florida state legislature when he passed away that year which in turn passed it to the people, you and me, all of us. Heres what Mr. Twain said about the profession that insists on open records: The devils aversion to holy water is a light matter compared with a despots dread of a newspaper that laughs. We are also told that our newspapers are irreverent, coarse, vulgar, and ribald. I hope that this irreverence will last forever; that we shall always show irreverence for royalties and titled creatures born into privilege, and all that class which take their title from anything but merit. The old saw says, Let sleeping dogs lie. Right. Still, when there is much at stake it is better to get a newspaper to do it. Unassailable certainty is the thing that gives a newspaper the firmest and most valuable reputation. Our papers have one peculiarity it is American their irreverence. They are irreverent toward pretty much everything, but where they laugh one good king to death, they laugh a thousand cruel and infamous shams and superstitions into the grave, and the account is squared. Irreverence is the champion of liberty and its only sure defense. Irreverence and sunshine. COMMENTARY (Solar) power to the people rogerWILLIAMS rwilliams@floridaweekly.com

MOMENTS IN TIME On March 11, 1818, Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheusm is published. The book, by 21-year-old Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, is frequently called the worlds first science-fiction novel. In Shelleys tale, a scientist animates a creature constructed from dismembered corpses. On March 12, 1903, the New York Highlanders are given the go-ahead by team owners to join baseballs American League. The Highlanders had recently moved from Baltimore, where they were called the Orioles. The team officially changed its name to the New York Yankees in 1913. On March 14, 1935, 6-year-old actress Shirley Temple presses her hands in cement outside Graumans Chinese Theater in Los Angeles. She first won attention with a song and dance in the 1934 movie Get Up and Cheer. After a year-long debate, President Barack Obama has at last declared that the time has come for an up-or-down vote in Congress on his health-care-reform legislation. President Obama, who has compromised, conciliated and conceded to the lock-stepping Republicans determined to block his signature domestic proposal, is showing some muscle at a crucial juncture. Its about time. Before getting to his bottom-line call for a vote, President Obama embraced more Republican proposals by agreeing to add them to his plan, thus coating it with the mantra of bipartisanship. President Obama obviously thought if you cant beat em, join em, as he made concessions in what will likely be an unsuccessful effort to attract Republican votes in Congress. But it is time to fish or cut bait and to stop trying to make nice with the Republican minority. They are determined to kill any health-care legislation, no matter how diluted it becomes by more and more administration concessions. The GOP is convinced it can defeat Obama in the House or the Senate and, having humbled the president, go on to win control of Congress in the November elections. They think the loss of the late Sen. Edward Kennedys Senate seat to Republican Scott Brown points to the future.In announcing his strategy, President Obama took a swipe at insurers who, he said, are continuing to raise premiums and deny coverage. He dismissed Republican rhetoric that the administration and Congress should start all over again in designing healthreform legislation. For us to start over now could simply lead to delay that could last for another decade or more, he said.In urging Congress to give the issue an up-or-down vote, President Obama was counseling the U.S. Senate to use a parliamentary device called reconciliation that enables the lawmakers to decide issues by a 51-vote majority and thus bypass the 60-vote supermajority that is needed to overcome a filibuster. The Democrats lack the 60 votes but likely could muster the 51 votes to approve a bill.The poorly named reconciliation process can be invoked when the Senate parliamentarian rules that a piece of pending legislation would have a budget impact. Through the years, Senate opponents of any particular legislation have viewed reconciliation as a nuclear device. That was the case last week when Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said a decision by Democrats to invoke reconciliation would be met with outrage by the public. There are 41 Republicans in the Senate, a sufficient number to allow the lawmakers to filibuster against a bill because the Democrats lack the 60 votes to end debate. Thus, reconciliation comes into play.Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., seemed to hint that no floor vote was going to happen anytime soon. We remain committed to this effort, and well use every option available to deliver meaningful reform this year, Sen. Reid said.In its long slide toward compromise, the administration played its cards badly when it rejected a government-sponsored health-insurance program to compete with private insurers, the same companies that seek ever higher premiums while at the same time cutting coverage. Supporters of a government-run program were dismissed early on by the White House and by Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and a key author of the watered-down bill that the Senate passed last year. The president, who boasts about being daring, chose to avoid history. Robert Gibbs, the White House spokesman, said Obama picked the option he believed would be the most effective and has the ability to become law. While Sen. McConnell shrouds his opposition to health-care legislation in gentle parliamentary lingo, the true face of the Republican minority is that of his fellow Kentucky Republican, Sen. Jim Bunning, who managed to embarrass even members of his own party when he belligerently blocked legislation extending unemployment benefits. His stalling maneuver left hundreds of thousands of jobless workers facing denial of benefits, though he finally relented after protests erupted in Kentucky. Sen. Bunning is near the end of his years in the Senate. What a legacy for an outgoing senator. The voters should take a new look at the little men and women in Congress who take government handouts for their districts but would deny the benefits to others. That opportunity will come this November. helenTHOMAS Special to Florida Weekly Obama: Full speed ahead for health reformOPINION President Barack Obama learned from Bill Clintons mistakes in 1993-94. He ran, relative to Mr. Clinton, a buttoned-up transition. He sought to avoid Mr. Clintons tactical miscues on health care. And he steered clear of cultural land mines. The backlash against Democrats in 1994 was famously attributed to gays, guns and God. President Obama has mostly avoided stoking opposition around that hot-button triad, but faces a backlash almost indistinguishable in feel and intensity. Why? Big government became a cultural issue. The level of spending, the bailouts and the intervention in the economy contemplated in health-care reform and capand-trade created the fear that something elemental was changing in the country quickly, irrevocably, without notice. President Obama has run up against the countrys cultural conservatism as surely as Mr. Clinton did. But President Obama is encountering its fiscal expression, the sense that America has always been defined by a more stringently limited government than other advanced countries. Its an American exceptionalism backlash. The roots of our exceptionalism extend all the way back to our mother country, England, which was less centralized, hierarchical and feudal than the rest of Europe. Taking Englands incipient liberalism and stretching it to its logical conclusion, we became the most liberal polity ever known to man. We arrived in this century still a country apart. Prior to its recent run-up, total government spending remained about 36 percent of GDP in the U.S. In Europe, the figure was higher 44 percent in Britain, 53 percent in France and 56 percent in Sweden, and they spend less on defense than we do. The left has long been scandalized by our cussed differentness. Progressive intellectuals last century looked to alternative foreign models like Bismarcks Germany. You can hear the same plaint in contemporary liberalism: Why cant we be more like them like the French, like the Swedes, like any people with a larger, busier government overawing the private sector and civil society? President Obama is answering the call. Spending is sneaking up to European levels an estimated 44 percent of GDP this year even before the baby boomers retire. He seeks to give us European-style health-care, energy and labor policies.Abroad, President Obama has often displayed a dismaying defensiveness about his country. He appears to have an allergy both to U.S power and to the word democracy. In John Boltons pungent phrase, hes a post-American president. All of this has created a roiling reaction. The ground troops of this revolt arent the Christian right activists of 1994. Instead, they are tea-partiers driven by the growth of government. Their catchphrase of taking back the country isnt an appeal to power so much as a clarion call to preserve the foundations of the countrys distinctiveness. The debt, for them, isnt just about fiscal probity, but our way of life. Of course, the American tradition has ample room for government expansion or the welfare state wouldnt already be so large, and Obama is weighed down as well by the weak economy. But his rush to social democracy has touched a raw cultural nerve. Hes avoided God, guns and gays, and hit on something more profound.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 11-17, 2010 15 MINUTES In retirement, former Naples fire chief is just warming upJim McEvoys love of family, his sense of community and his choice of music together reflect the mans solid roots and Irish heritage. His grandparents journeyed from Ireland to the United States between 1900 and 1920. His parents met and married in New England, then raised their children four sons and a daughter in the Dorchester neighborhood of South Boston. Mr. McEvoys father served the city of Boston for 33 and remained an active member of the Boston Fire Department until his death in 1988. I always knew my dad loved his job, says Mr. McEvoy. He was happy to be going there. That no doubt contributed to Mr. McEvoys love of fire trucks as a boy. He recalls going to the fire station every chance he could get; during his early teens he experienced the thrill of wintertime ride-a-longs with his father in open-cab fire trucks. As for his mom, Shes my heart and soul, he says, my biggest fan. Mr. McEvoy left Boston for Florida to work for a friend in 1980. The friend left town when his business folded, but Mr. McEvoy stayed and went to work for the Lee County Parks and Recreations Department. He relocated to Naples in 1985, when the opportunity arose for him to work for the Naples Fire Department. For him, it was a dream come true, having long yearned to be a firefighter. He lived that dream for nearly 25 years, until his retirement in June 2009. Throughout his career, he took every promotional exam offered at the earliest available opportunity. He performed well in his duties and on his exams; as a result, he ascended through the ranks from rookie firefighter to chief of the department. Mr. McEvoy speaks with great appreciation about the education and training he received throughout his career. I owe everything I have to the city of Naples, he says. His service to the city didnt end with his retirement however. This year marks Mr. McEvoys first as chairman of Naples St. Patricks Day Parade. When John Finnegan stepped down after a decade in the position, he asked Mr. McEvoy to replace him. Interestingly, Mr. Finnegan is likewise from Dorchester and worked with Bostons Dorchester Parade for many years. Despite their common origins, the two men first met in Naples at the IrishAmerican Club. Mr. McEvoy credits Mr. Finnegans role in the St. Patricks Day festivities for the parades growth into one of Naples premier winter events, with a reputation on par with those in New York, Boston, Chicago and Dublin. This years parade will include several local marching bands, floats, bagpipers, horses, clowns and politicians. The participating school bands, a total of eight from Collier and Lee counties, receive scholarship funds from the parade committee to help cover the expense of participating. The parade is a family affair for the McEvoys. Wife Lynn is treasurer; she handles bookkeeping and also sorts the many participant applications. And in 2006, daughter Molly reigned as Little Miss Smiling Eyes. And lets not forget Mr. McEvoys music. Im not proficient at guitar, and Im not a great singer, he says, but when I put the two together, it works and people like it. Im an entertainer. Hes also learning to play the Irish bouzouki, which he describes as being kind of like a real big mandolin. His current band, West of Galway, has been playing Irish tunes together for six years. The five members sing and play six instruments, including an Irish frame drum (bodhran), guitar, fiddle, tin whistle and concertina. The 32nd annual Naples St. Patricks Day Parade will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 13, at St. Annes Catholic Church and will follow its traditional route in Old Naples. You dont have to be Irish to be one of the tens-of-thousands of spectators who will enjoy the parade this year, the new chairman stresses. Theres no cost for admission, the Wearin o the Green is recommended, and having fun is an absolute requirement.Parade day promises to be busy for Mr. McEvoy, wholl have to keep pace with two back-to-back gigs with his band immediately following the procession, first at 1 p.m. at McCabes Irish Pub on Fifth Avenue South and then at 6 p.m. at Foxboro Tavern on East Tamiami Trail. West of Galway also takes the stage every Tuesday night at Fitzgeralds Irish Pub in Bonita Springs.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 11-17, 2010 than three decades using public records to right wrongs and challenge official miscreants, before retiring three years ago. Sunshine wasnt designed for busybodies or voyeurs, per se, according to its champions. They will begin celebrating Floridas pioneering open records laws March 14 across Southwest Florida and the 67 counties of the Sunshine State. Instead, Sunshine was designed to let men and women here control their destinies by watchdogging their leaders. Thats a form of freedom as purely American as apple pie or James Madison, insists Dwight Brock, Collier Countys feisty Circuit Court clerk. At his official stop on the county Web site designed to guide citizens into public records the Sunshine logo at www.colliergov.net Mr. Brock quotes Mr. Madison, the nations fourth president and the shaper of the First Amendment protecting free speech. A popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or Tragedy; or, perhaps both, Mr. Madison proclaimed. The famous words also appear on the states detailed Web site, myflsunshine. com, where the specific laws appear with their history and applications. But the devil is in the details, and the measure of Sunshines strength or weakness lies in the loopholes. Common among those are localgovernment contracting and purchasing negotiations taking place; law enforcement investigations underway and personal information about minors. There are other loopholes, however often the hot zones for periodic fights over Sunshine and shadow. Should 9-1-1 calls or autopsy files be public record? How closely should parents be able to scrutinize the personnel records of their childs public school teachers? And should government officials be obligated to harness the efficiency and power of new technology to make records easily available, or can they allow them to remain hard to reach in the electronic universe?What the records can tell youWhether difficult or easy to find, citizens can check the pedigree of every nonprofit organization or large political gift. They can trace the actual names behind the fictitious names of corporations, or determine not only the salaries of all their leaders but the sometimesstartling benefits packages. They can discover how many lawsuits or legal complaints have been filed against contractors or business owners, check the cleanliness reports on restaurant kitchens, and detail the travel budgets and extra expenses of public officials, to name just a few. In general, democracy only works when government is open, says Kelly McBride, a faculty member and ethics group leader at the celebrated Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, which educates and hones the skills of both American and international journalists. And much of it is open. By comparing databases, you can discover if any of the bus drivers hired by an agency that drives school busses have DUIs, she reveals. You can look and see how many foreclosures are in your neighborhood, and how that relates to property values. You can look and see how many speeding tickets are written in different ZIP codes and compare it to the demographics, and learn how your local law enforcement targets speeders. You can hold the police accountable in many ways for example, how they code sexual assaults in many cities, which can reflect not only the image of a city for tourists and investors, but suggest crime-solving successes that come with salary and position jumps for commanders. Opponents of open records come neither from conservative nor liberal positions by nature, suggests Ms. McBride, but from people who aim to hoard power. Its very easy and popular for lawmakers and even judges to be activists in closing certain records in reaction to a very specific incident, something that makes news, especially now with the rising concern for privacy, she notes. But that often fails the interests of a democracy. For example: the fight to open autopsy records of NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt, killed in a 2001 racing accident. When reporters sought the graphic photographs from those records to determine if his life could have been saved by different safety gear and more stringent NASCAR policies, an outcry ensued, Ms. McBride recalls. The public issue became a debate over voyeurs and privacy, not an effort to save the lives of other drivers and make the sport safer by using public records to investigate the conditions that led to Mr. Earnhardts death. But thats the point and the power of Sunshine laws.How opponents fight sunshineThe problem is, its very hard to hold government accountable when you cant get the records, Ms. McBride points out. And you have to have a couple other puzzle pieces in place to hold government accountable. You have to have public officials willing to do it. I was a police reporter for eight years, but police chiefs who wanted to make my life hell, could. They could create policies, ways of doing business, that could make it impossible to get the records. They might say that you have to pay exorbitant fees, or fees for a clerks time to access the records so the only way out is suing. On the other hand, she says, some officials go out of their way to honor and extend the Sunshine. Mr. Brock, for example, has been locked in a six-year lawsuit with the board of Collier County commissioners to close one Sunshine loophole: He would require the board to open its financial records as it creates them, not after the fact, so that he may audit them, publicly. After all, he argues, the law requires that the county clerk serve as a checkand-balance, signing off on each financial decision of the board, including those already approved by commissioners, something he cant do appropriately if he cant see whats been done. And he insists every citizen should know how officials are behaving. What I do is the peoples business, Mr. Brock says. If the people dont have a right to know about their business, then I cant imagine who does. The general public overwhelmingly believes government has an obligation to report and explain what they do, and how they spend our money. So its important for government to do everything it can to make information available to the public. In Lee County, where Wayne Daltry recently retired from a three-decade career as a planner and leader of Smart Growth in large part because county officials had hidden their planning and decision-making from him, and from the public one of the biggest loopholes is both legal and problematic, he says. This is the loophole for the elected or appointed chief executive, in which he or she can make decisions out of the Sunshine. Everything else is open record or as Mr. Daltry describes it, everything else comprises the chain of evidence of decision-making for all BUT the chief operating officers/executive, since they are the only ones that dont need to keep records. Depending on the good faith determination of a leader to honor the intent of Sunshine laws, therefore a county manager, say, or a police chief or county sheriff those records become opportunities for citizens to assess their leaders. Or not. Lee County keeps records of (County Manager) Karen Hawes weekly meeting of the 30 department heads, but not a word of her weekly meeting of the four chief administrators, notes Mr. Daltry. So guess where decisions get made or handed out? Maybe the most important document of all, suggests Mr. Daltry, is the real organization chart, which is seldom published. The official organization chart shows command and control and information flows. A real one will show dotted lines of how information and decisions REALLY flow, and there will be dotted lines that lead off the chart to influence peddlers, deal makers, friends with pull, etc., and that is also why public records laws are key that is where you find the impact of the dotted lines.In the trenchesFor those who spend their working lives watching government and reporting its actions the reporters hired by newspapers or television networks to pay attention debates over Sunshines limits are a matter of daily course. Every time this legislature exempts another record from public view its assaulting the publics right to know, and that ought to be outrageous to everyone, insists Mr. Melsek, who retired from his position as an investigative reporter for The News-Press five years ago. Mr. Melsek is now publishing a community newspaper sharply attentive to the actions of officials in the town of Fort Myers Beach, as well as to county officials whose decisions may affect the Beach, where he was raised, and where he now lives. Like Ms. McBride, he also assigns journalists the duty of defending open public records, not simply offering hesaid, she-said reports. Any newspaper editorial writer who makes excuses for politicians who close public records ought to be run out of the building, Mr. Melsek suggests unequivocally. That said, Ms. Hawes, for example, is within her rights to provide no account of conversations with chief administrators. Whether she or those meeting behind closed doors with her take specific notes or merely doodle on a note pad, members of the public cant get those records by asking for them. (Those) are only public if you make them so by slipping into her trash can after hours, which is what I used to do at grand jury rooms here in the Lee County Courthouse, Mr. Melsek adds. After each session of a grand jury meeting the prosecutors would leave and neglect to lock the door. So, Mr. Melsek would slip in and go through the waste can for their notes. Sometimes, that search yielded just enough to confirm what they were doing. As for county commissioners, Under their own policy they must keep logs of their individual private meetings with lobbyists, Mr. Melsek says. They must jot down the time, the date, the name of the person talking to them, who they are with, who they represent and what the subject was. Those logs are given to the minutes department every few months. I used to get a lot of interesting information from them. Such scrutiny of government in the sunshine requires not cynicism about the actions of officials, but an honorable and stainless-steel skepticism, says Charlie Whitehead, who spent two decades covering government for the Naples Daily News. Mr. Whitehead left that paper last month. Government bears watching, in its truest sense, he explains. You have to keep your eye on them because officials are not to be trusted. If they were to abuse their positions, theyre in a position to do great damage. So you cant afford to trust them. Its not a question of whether they would do something untoward, but that they could. The Sunshine laws are there in large part because they could. Veteran reporters often use Sunshine laws as a powerful tool to right specific and sometimes bloody wrongs, not simply to bring information to the public. In Mr. Melseks case, for example, he worked not only in Lee and Collier counties in the course of his career, but north into Charlotte and DeSoto counties. In one case, his work freed a man imprisoned for life for a crime he didnt PUBLICFrom page 1 MCBRIDE

WEEK OF MARCH 11-17, 2010 NEWS A9 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com commit that was long before DNA became a factor and in another case his reporting stopped the abuse of countless mental patients by their wards in a state hospital. Bobby Chambers was a black fruit picker in DeSoto County, Mr. Melsek recalls. Hed been in prison several years and I found the old transcripts and testimony of his trial for robbery in the deepest corner of the old DeSoto County Courthouse. I brushed off the dust, opened the crumpled case files and spent months piecing together what was an unmistakable paper trail of contradictory testimony on crucial points, and as questionable a legal representation as you will ever see. Those stories persuaded some legislators to have him freed from his life sentence. Mr. Melsek used pubic records much the same way at the state mental hospital in Arcadia. I dug into personnel files that went back a decade and found a pattern of not only abuses on patients that went unpunished, but (a pattern) that left the abusers in the wards with the people theyd abused. Those files also turned up years of hirings from farm fields and dollar stores of people put immediately in charge of the most vulnerable people in our society. Eventually, the state shut down that hospital and redesigned the way it provided such services. Both of those stories were framed on the rock-solid credibility of public records, says Mr. Melsek. At The News-Press in 2008, reporter Amy Bennett Williams used public records to run down a series of online comments from different e-mail accounts that excoriated a nonprofit labor organization in Collier County, the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. The comments touted demonstrable lies and false allegations of theft. (Ms. Williams is married to Florida Weekly writer Roger Williams.) At the time, The Coalition was publicly encouraging fast-food giant Burger King to pay a penny a pound more for tomatoes picked in Florida fields, to boost the wages of poverty-stricken workers. The whole field of electronic public records is sort of being pioneered now, Ms. Williams says. Fortunately, Internet protocol addresses, the IP addresses, are public. Im sure there are ways to cloak them, which should be illegal, but I think enough people dont do that, so that you can use them. Ms. Williams decided to track an e-mail from someone who called himself Shawn Glass, after she noticed it used many of the turns of phrase shed seen in various other e-mails, from other addresses. You can figure out where it came from by typing an IP address into a search engine, and that will give you, in many cases, the geographic coordinates, she explains. It will give you the longitude and latitude from whence came the email. So I did this, and got the geographic coordinates from which Mr. Glass had sent me his letters, and those happened to be the corporate headquarters of Burger King. When comments appeared from a tag called Surfxaholic again replete with similar-sounding and potentially libelous accusations about The Coalition she looked at the personal information provided by the sender and tracked it to someone named Shannon Grover, who lived in the same town as a vice president for Burger King, Steven Grover. So using public records I got the phone number and called the Grover household, and spoke to Shannon. She confirmed for me it was her father who used her account to write about the Coalition, Ms. Williams says. This is not some journalists trick, its something anybody in the public could have done. I was intent on connecting the dots, thanks to the ready availability of a variety of public records thanks to electronic records and old standards like phone books. In the end, Burger King fired Mr. Grover and changed its policies with regard to the people who pick its tomatoes. Although many people may not have the time to track records in the fashion of investigative reporters, they can still use the Sunshine to weigh in significantly in government. We as a society have become maybe a little complacent in our role of providing consent for the way government operates, says Mr. Brock, the Circuit Court clerk in Collier County. So its important for people to stand up and use the tools available to gain an understanding of what government is doing, and is doing to them. By and large, those tools are public records. In general, democracy only works when government is open. By comparing databases you can discover if any of the bus drivers hired by an agency that drives school busses have DUIs. You can look and see how many foreclosures are in your neighborhood, and how that relates to property values. You can look and see how many speeding tickets are written in different ZIP codes and compare it to the demographics, and learn how your local law enforcement targets speeders.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 11-17, 2010 UNDERCOVER HISTORIAN Inaugural Collier County History Fair filled with sweet surprisesMomma always said life is like a box of chocolates you never know what youre gonna get. Forrest GumpForrest and his Momma would have enjoyed some sweet surprises at the firstever Collier County History Fair, which happened this past weekend at Seacrest Country Day School. One of the best moments was when Leila Canant, a beloved Naples teacher, received an educators highest tribute when the Collier County Professional Building at Third Avenue South and Sixth Street South was named after her.This first annual event was really the third attempt by Naples Backyard History to engage Collier County students in the 36-year-old National History Day competition. We pitched the idea two years ago and had no response; last year our urging resulted in one entry from homeschooled student Ian Cox, who ended up at the Florida History Fair in Tallahassee. One local history teacher, John Heers from Seacrest, went to Tallahassee to evaluate the competitions merits.This year, the first official Collier County History Fair garnered 170 entries from students in four public schools and 38 entries from students at Seacrest. A sweet surprise entry came at the last minute on judging day, when Jacob Winge, a junior from Barron Collier High School, walked in (the only suit-and-tie participant) alone, with his paper in hand, to ask if he could enter the competition. The theme was Innovations in History. The national guidelines suggested that innovations are creative new approaches to any facet of life and also stressed that students keep in mind that not all changes are innovations. It was not enough for entrants simply to describe an innovative object, idea or event; they also had to describe the historical context of the innovation and support their entire presentation with an annotated bibliography.Our history is in their handsBritish writer William Plomer described creativity as the power to connect the seemingly unconnected. Our CCHF judges, though not initially connected, became so through this competition and their shared love of history and accuracy. The judges were: Kathy Guyitt, Karin Wolfe, Lavigne Kirkpatrick, Denise Rochford, Jeff Hirsch, Jesse Hinson, Mike Peppe, Jack Bovee, Naples City Councilwoman Margaret Dee Sulick and Keith Basik. Mr. Heers, who led the campaign to encourage local students to participate in the history fair, presented the entries to the judges. Seven ultimately were chosen to represent Collier County in Tallahassee at the Florida History Fair in May. Heres where Forrests momma hit the nail on the head (you never know what youre gonna get): A couple of entries were likened to that piece of candy you put in your mouth expecting one thing but, sweet surprise, you bite into something else. The firstand second-place winners in each category are: Documentary: Credit Cards and Their Impact on the Millennia Generation, by Katie Burns snd David Hastings; The Innovation of the Tampon by Catherine Beckett, Annalisa Murray and Manny Burtscher (this tastefully done short film surprised us all), Web Site: The History of Penicillin (only one entry), by Zach Wright, Genestra Kappotis and Lindsay Griffin Exhibit: The Gatling Gun: Innovations with Weapons to End War (complete with a museum-quality Gatling gun replica, which was purchased by the student for this exhibit), by Deo Savaretti and Isaiah Leonard; The History of Jeans, by Sarah Mattienson Historical Papers: Cryptography, by Charlotte Newell; The Black Death, by Sara SmithThe surprise fillingWhile Mr. Winge, the late entry who started the first History Club at Barron Collier High School this year, didnt make the final cut with his entry (points deducted for a missing bibliography) Democracy: Innovation in Government, his courage and paper led the committee to the creation of something befitting for such a pioneering spirit: the Naples Backyard History Patriotism Award. This award comes with an opportunity to attend a Heritage Foundation dinner to meet Carol Rove and to travel to the FHF in May as a Collier County ambassador and reporter for Naples Backyard History.We all from time to time lament that kids today just dont appreciate history, nor do they understand the sacrifices that many made for their freedom, or even understand the meaning of patriotism. But this past Saturday we were proven wrong. Life surely is like a box of chocolates, and we found some sweet surprises along the way at the Collier County History Fair. Meet some of the Collier County History Fair student participants and see their entries that will go on to the Florida History Fair during the Naples Backyard History luncheon tribute to Mary Ellen Hawkins and Lynn Hixon Holly at 11 a.m. Monday, March 22, at the Naples Beach Club.BY LOIS BOLIN ____________________Special to Florida Weekly COURTESY PHOTOThis Gatling gun replica was part of a winning entry in the Collier County History Fair.

For the 20th year, The Education Foundation of Collier County has honored and thanked teachers, on behalf of the community, for excellence in the classroom. The following teachers are the 2010 Golden Apple recipients: Elizabeth Braren, Tommie Barfield Elementary Diane Fontdevila, Osceola Elementary Kate Hickie, Naples Park Elementary Angela Loerzel, Pelican Marsh Elementary Jean Lorenz, Naples High Jon Mundorf, Tommie Barfield Elementary The Golden Apple teachers, along with the Teachers of Distinction, will be recognized Tuesday, May 4, at the Golden Apple Teacher Recognition Celebration presented by Suncoast for Kids Foundation.

Since its inception, Suncoast for Kids has supported educators who help foster an enriching atmosphere in the classroom. It is important that we recognize their commitment to excellence through programs such as the Golden Apple awards, says Greg Pasanen, Suncoast Schools FCU regional vice president. The Education Foundation began with the core belief that teachers have the greatest impact on student learning. Since the inception of Golden Apple 20 years ago, more than 20,000 teachers have been nominated and thanked through this community-based process. We want to congratulate this years Golden Apple recipients and Teachers of Distinction, says Trish Biebricher, 2009-10 Golden Apple chair. Our community places such value on the teaching profession and is looking forward to this opportunity to celebrate and thank teachers. The process begins when students, parents, colleagues and community members nominate teachers in the fall. Eligible teachers who have been nominated may choose to apply for Golden Apple by submitting the written application. The Selection Committee, constituted by former educators, parents, local business and community volunteers, read the applications blind and narrow the field to 100. These 100 teachers are then observed (unannounced) and scored by members of the Core Committee, which is a different group of community volunteers. The application and initial observation scores are combined to identify the Teachers of Distinction, who are then observed and interviewed by the Selection Committee. The Selection Committee seeks to recognize professional Collier County Public School teachers who exhibit excellence in the classroom. Each of the six Golden Apple recipients receives a total of $2,000 through the Mary Ingram Fund of the Columbus Foundation, along with an engraved Golden Apple and other gifts from the community.

The grants, primarily the result of proceeds from the clubs Inaugural Glass Slipper Ball Gala held last fall, target girls, teens and women of all ages in the Bonita Springs-Estero community. I am thrilled we are able to award these funds for such important and targeted projects, says YVonne Murray, president of the club. All seven of these grants will make a tremendous difference in the lives of the young ladies and women served. Our clubs mission is to improve the quality of lives of women at all stages of life, and these grants will do exactly that. The club received grant applications from nearly a dozen groups outlining projects that meet a serious need in the community, Ms. Murray adds. Our Grants Committee, ably headed by Denese Mattrey, worked hard to choose programs that will have the most impact, she adds. I wish we could have funded them all. Three of the grants, including one going to the clubs Service Initiative Group, focus on fighting domestic violence and human trafficking. Three others focus on improving womens overall health, including breast health care and providing financial assistance to those battling cancer. The last one helps middle school-aged girls in Bonita Spring develop an interest in engineering, math and science as an impetus to higher education and highly skilled careers. The club promotes this goal by awarding a scholarship to an area teen who is continuing her education in math, science or business, fields of study that reflect the career of Amelia Earhart, the most famous Zonta member Zonta International.

Volunteers can help a child in Southwest Florida learn to read and write just by sending him or her a book and a letter. A Literacy Buddy agrees to receive letters from a child in an early learning facility served by the Early Learning Coalition. The Buddy will, in turn, send a letter and a book to the child. Such an exchange can take place several times over the course of a school year. The purpose is to teach children about correspondence, communication and instill appreciation of reading. For some children, this provides the only opportunity to have books of their own at home. Literacy Buddies has direct, measurable results. In nearly every case, the childs communication skills are positively impacted and visible via letters and verbal communication changes. In existence for two years, Literacy Buddies exists to help young, pre-elementary school aged children develop and excel in literacy. In the past year, 1,100 children were matched with Literacy Buddies. There are 220 children ready for matching with buddies now. The Early Learning Coalition of Southwest Florida exists to enhance the quality of childrens lives by providing low-income families, early childhood educators, caregivers and community partners in Collier, Glades, Hendry and Lee counties with opportunities to positively impact the future.

The facility is designed to support residents of Our Mothers Home who have aged out of the foster care system. The open house will feature a ribbon-cutting ceremony, music, refreshments and tours of the Transition Home. Those wishing to attend are asked to RSVP by calling 267-4663. Directions will be provided to the house in San Carlos Park south of Fort Myers. Purchased for $85,000, the 2,309square-foot duplex Transition Home will accommodate up to four residents and their babies. Approximately $28,000 in renovations have been made to the house, including a new kitchen and bathrooms, wood floors, backyard fencing, landscaping and a sprinkler system. We know the outcomes f or foster teens who age out before completing high school and do not receive the support of a licensed transitional housing facility are not good, says OMH Executive Director Jill Trammell. The Transition Home will provide the mothers who age out of OMH a valuable opportunity to make a smoother transition into society. While living in the Transition Home for six to 12 months, the young mothers will learn about independent living by paying bills, maintaining the home, planning and cooking meals, caring for their children and arranging for child care as needed. They will continue to attend school and follow through on entering the work force. Staff from Out Mothers Home will help the transitioning mothers achieve self-sufficiency in an independent living arrangement. Local businesses are supporting the Transition Home grand opening by providing sponsorships. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available. For information, contact Dorothy Pullen at OMH at 267-4663 or by e-mail at Dorothy@ourmothershome.com. Without the Transition Home, the young mothers who have worked so hard to turn their lives around face the real possibility of returning to the life of despair they lived in before OMH, says Ms. Trammell. The Transition Home will provide a much-needed additional level of support. We encourage everyone to come out to see how they can support our vision. Our Mothers Home celebrates completion of transition house for teens East Naples Community Park hosts its fourth annual Spring Festival from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 20.

TO YOUR HEALTH www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 11-17, 2010 HEALTHY LIVINGIn drive for muscularity, men suffer body image problems of their ownSlimming down for swimsuit season has long been an obsession for women. Now bulking up for the beach can lead to body image problems with men who want to be bigger than ever, a new University of Florida study suggests. The unhappiness runs deeper than the iconic Charles Atlas comic book ads in which a pound weakling transforms himself into a match for any buff bully on the beach. It extends to the use of sometimes dangerous supplements, obsessive exercise, gnawing anxiety and frequent mood swings, says Heather Hausenblas, a UF exercise psychologist who co-authored the research with Nickles Chittester, a psychology professor at Concordia University in Texas. The research is based on Mr. Chittesters doctoral dissertation while a student at UF. The similarity between the days of Mr. Atlas and today is an excessive desire to develop muscles, which springs from societys changing perceptions of the ideal male physique, Ms. Hausenblas says. If you look back at what was considered the ideal male body 50 years ago, it wasnt this super-hyper muscular physique that we have now, she says. The build that captured the Mr. Universe title when the contest began in 1959 is considerably smaller than the contemporary version, she adds. Body image problems, such as eating disorders and striving to be thin, have always been attributed to women, but now were seeing a significant rise in men who are dissatisfied with how they look and want to become more muscular, she says. As with extremely thin women believing they need to shed pounds, mens preoccupation with building muscle mass may bear no relationship to their actual size. We found that this drive for muscularity was influenced by psychological factors and not how large or how muscular a man is, she says. The researchers studied 113 male college students at UF using surveys and body assessment measures, publishing their findings in the October issue of the Journal of Health Psychology. The study found that supplement use, low self-esteem and exercise dependence were the strongest predictors of a fixation with being big and beefy. Anthropometric measures such as ones body mass index and percentage of body fat were not factors. The media have shifted their focus on female body dissatisfaction to include men, as a cultural transformation has taken place in the amount of muscle that is accepted and on display, Ms. Hausenblas says, adding in the last decade there has been almost an explosion of research taking a look at male body issues and the causes and consequences of it. Not only have muscle standards been raised to unrealistic heights in physical competition and on the cover of mens magazines, but the trend has trickled down to childrens toys, Ms. Hausenblas says. Just as Barbie dolls set unrealistic expectations for girls, super muscular Spiderman, Superman and other action figures do so for boys. As these boys grow up, its not surprising there has been an increase in male cosmetic surgical procedures such as calf implants, We are extremely proud to announce another giant step in cardiology services, as nine cardiologists from four interventional cardiology groups have joined the NCH Healthcare System to help transform our first-in-the-state cardiology program (www.HealthGrades.com) into a national Center of Excellence. Drs. David Axline, Michael Flynn, Adam Frank, George Gamouras, Ronald Levine, Tracey Roth, Carlo Santos-Ocampo, Herman Spilker and James Venable have integrated with NCH. When fully ramped up, our cardiology team will be physician-led with performance based on quality, safety, coordination of care, growth and control of cost, primarily through increased efficiency and reduction of waste. We will have a shared culture, shared risk, useful data, continuous learning and, most important of all, better outcomes for our cardiovascular patients as we develop the NCH Heart and Vascular Institute. A patient will call one phone number, ask for a consultation, and be directed to the cardiologist whose interests and abilities most closely match that patients needs. (Of course, if a patient already has a relationship with a particular cardiologist, the patient will continue with his/her cardiologist.) Before the meeting, records will be obtained, to optimize the visit. A common Electronic Medical Record, shared with all the cardiologists, will ensure maximum knowledge and seamless communication with easy access for appropriate caregivers. If a patient then needs additional diagnostic testing, such as a cardiac catheterization or ECHO cardiology, this can be scheduled at the time of the appointment and performed quickly and easily in one location the spectacular third floor of the Briggs Wellness Center, which will be built out over the next 18 months. Here is Dr. Levines summary of the beneficial impact of this new integration: This partnership will allow us to deliver more efficient and safer care for our patients and our community by working together rather than separately. And this is only the beginning. Physicians can improve and grow the system by enhancing communication and coordination of care across boundaries of practice sites and facilities. Over time, other physicians will join this integrated cardiology practice, adding to our abilities and capacity to care for patients locally and from outside Southwest Florida. Our goal in cardiology in addition to improving the quality we offer local patients is to rival our position as a National Center of Excellence in total joint replacements, where NCH is the second busiest total joint replacement hospital in the United States, with 7 percent of patients coming from outside our area. So while this cardiac integration will help drive our regional economy, it will also add to our reputation for national healthcare quality. By integrating with our physicians for major health care needs, we will change the face of health care in our community. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. Integration of doctors creates better cardiology program STRAIGHT TALK d I n a e a p allenWEISS allen.weiss@nchmd.org Seminar set on arthritis treatmentsArthritis affects one out of every five Americans in one form or another and is the leading cause of disability in the nation. Orthopedic surgeon Robert Zehr of The Zehr Center for Orthopaedics will present a free seminar, Arthritis Tips, Trends and New Techniques, at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 13, in the caf at North Collier Hospital. The discussion will include preventative measures as well as the range of treatment options up to and including total joint replacement.My goal is to provide people with information that can help them understand arthritis and improve their quality of life. Hopefully that can be accomplished without the need for surgery, by making lifestyle changes that affect their joints, such as maintaining an exercise program and avoiding obesity, says Dr. Zehr. He is one of the few surgeons in the United States using the anterior approach to total hip replacement, which he says requires a much less invasive and muscle-sparing incision.Although the seminar is free, reservations are requested as space is limited. Call The Zehr Center at 5960100.

Prices starting at$39.95 or underinsured, was backed by support from Susan G. Komen for the Cures Southwest Florida affiliate. Ms. Crapa is being cared for through Lee Memorial Health Systems treatment and referral program, Breast C.A.R.E., which received a $209,350 Komen grant last year. Naples Community Hospital has a similar program, Breast Health Patient Navigation, which received a $92,350 Komen grant in 2009. These grants are saving womens lives, especially in this economy, said Dara Leichter, breast health navigator for the Breast C.A.R.E. program. These are two of 10 community programs to receive Komen grants last year $963,000 in all that aims to remove the financial hurdle in the fight against breast cancer. Thats more than 13 times what Komen raised six years ago, its first full year of fundraising as a new Southwest Florida affiliate. Komens largest annual fundraising event, Race for the Cure, has made it the regions most visible and muscular presence in promoting breast cancer education, diagnoses and treatment. Last year the race attracted 8,100 walkers and runners. Organizers are hoping for another record turnout at this years race on Saturday, March 13, at Coconut Point in Estero. Supporters of Komens Southwest Florida affiliate have been exponentially more numerous and generous, but the number of breast cancer patients who cant afford treatment in the aftermath of the recession is outpacing that growth. Groups are asking Komen of Southwest Florida for nearly twice as much as last year; the organization has a total of $1.8 million in grant requests for the fiscal year beginning April 1. Because so many people are out of work and the way the economy is, there is a huge increase in need, said Bonnie Olson, grant chair for Komen of Southwest Florida. Family Health Centers of Southwest Florida, based in Collier County, was able to assess the risk of breast cancer and provide screening services for 818 women last year. Director Ena Mendez says that wouldnt have been possible without a $157,453 Komen grant. The centers Healthy Body, Healthy Soul program targets early detection of breast cancer for lowincome communities. Every year the program has grown, Ms. Mendez said. She hopes for a larger Komen grant this year. Komen is really discriminating (about how they allocate grant money), she said. And especially in the last few years theyre really looking to stretch their dollars, which is the way it should be. They are taking a woman from education to early detection, treatment, surgery, recovery and reconstruction. Theyre looking at every single angle. LMHSs Breast C.A.R.E. and NCHs Navigator program are also asking for larger grants this year. Lynn Hurley, breast health navigator at NCH, was recently approached by a woman who didnt have health insurance. She was crying because I was telling her about the community resources that are available, Ms. Hurley said. She said I found a lump two months ago and I couldnt do anything about it. Its a common fear, one Ms. Hurley hopes to calm. Theyre saying What if I get a mammogram and I do have cancer? she said. What then? I have no money. We want them to come in. Even if they dont have money, thats not an issue for us.KOMENFrom page 1 >> What: Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure >> When: Saturday, March 13.

Additionally, research now suggests that boys in middle and high school are engaging in some high-risk behaviors, taking steroids and other supplements, and restricting carbohydrate intake, to reach a higher level of muscularity, says J. Kevin Thompson, a University of South Florida psychology professor and co-author of the book The Muscular Ideal, who praised Ms. Hausenblas research. I think it comes down to people wanting that quick easy fix as opposed to actually doing the hard work of exercising, Ms. Haussenblas says. Its the same thing as weight loss, in that people would much rather take a weight loss pill than to have to diet, exercise and do everything that goes along with it. The frequency, duration or intensity of exercise had little influence on mens drive for muscularity, although an obsession with exercise did. It was not how much they were doing it, but their thoughts and attitudes about it, she says. For these men, feelings of self worth were closely tied to muscularity and exercise. With so much of their identity wrapped up in their physique, Ms. Hausenblas says, it wasnt surprising that low self-esteem resulted. SUFFERFrom page A26

The pontoon boat left the dock for its regular sunset cruise in Rookery Bay, fully expecting it to be a normal, lovely evening, hoping for many sightings of the local birds. As we headed out of Hall Bay at Marker 22, a passenger spotted a tri-color heron standing at the edge of the mangroves. As Capt. Arne Kelsey moved us in for a closer look it became obvious that microfilament was everywhere along the mangrove and the herons left wing had fishing line wrapped over and over around the tip. The heron was struggling unsuccessfully to free itself. We all agreed that something had to be done. Conservancy naturalists Mary Alice Shepherd and Darlene Meadows moved to the front platform of the boat as the captain edged right up to the struggling bird. First, we placed a lightweight blanket over the birds head so one naturalist could contain it calmly. Then the other naturalist deftly lifted the bird from the water as a passenger gave her a knife. They worked together to gently pull back the blanket one area at a time to cut the line. Finally, they got to the wing tip and removed the last of the line. We quickly examined this elegant creature for any injuries. While the right wing had been extended as the bird made every effort to escape, the wing was drawn into the body like the left one. The legs looked strong and straight. Carefully, the naturalists lifted the blanket and eased their hold on its body. The bird quickly moved off the boat and into the mangroves and then out through the trees, accompanied by a soft round of applause from all.And the rest of the storyAs for the rest of the Good Fortune cruise, the passengers began to identify every tri-color spotted as our bird. We also enjoyed a huge number of snowy egrets at the rookery island. Wood storks, bald eagles, a few great egrets and great blue herons, many double-crested cormorants and royal terns perched on a channel marker were also spotted. Many white ibis, little blue herons and pelicans of every stage and age were added to our inventory. The baby ospreys are growing, and a single young osprey was spotted on a nest with the parents nearby, watching over their family. One female, on a marker close to the entrance to Rookery Bay, was sitting on a pretty scraggly nest, really just a few twigs. Has she lost her mate? Is she late building this season? Or has her nest been damaged? As the Good Fortune headed back, black vultures soared high in the evening sky. All in all, it was a very satisfying evening. The passengers hoped that the rescued tri-color heron had joined his rookery buddies.

AT COLLIERSEMINOLE STATE PARK OUTDOORSSpotted sea trout (Cynoscion nebulosus) are perhaps the most popular shoreline saltwater gamefish in Florida. Hooked trout put up an impressive fight, and thats one reason these fish are so popular with anglers.There are many common names for spotted sea trout: speck, gator, salmon, winter, spotted weakfish and black trout. Youll also hear them simply called trout since they resemble rainbow trout. But spotted sea trout arent really trout at all. They are members of the Sciaenidae family, along with drums and croakers. Sea trout and weakfish, both in the genus Cynoscion, have tender mouths that tear easily. Many fishermen have lost these fish when reeling them in too quickly. Trout are easy to recognize. Their long, sleek bodies sport numerous round black spots on their back, dorsal fins and tail. Spots are less prominent on older fish. The upper body appears gray to green with a light blue to silvery underside. One or two distinct canine teeth protrude from the upper jaw. The lower jaw extends slightly beyond upper. There are no barbells (whisker-like projections). Adults average from 12-24 inches and 4-5 pounds. Catch one over 10 pounds and you have yourself a trophy fish. The Florida record, always changing, is around 17 pounds. Mature fish can live up to 10 years. Trout prefer estuaries and the shoreline along the Gulf. Look for fish over grass beds or sandy bottoms in water between 60 and 80 degrees. Youll find trout hanging out along sandbars and in holes, waiting for shrimp or smaller fish to swim by. If you locate a school, you can return day after day and fish the same area. Whether the fish are biting is another story! Trout usually do not migrate, moving only short distances. Exceptions occur with extreme temperatures and low salinity (as in a heavy rainfall), and during spawning. During cold weather, they move into deep water unless water is too cold (60 or below). Then they return to shallow, sandy bottoms where sun warms the water. Fish trapped in colder water will die. The trout range extends along the southern Atlantic and Gulf coasts, but trout are absent in the West Indies and Caribbean. Occasionally they are caught as far north as Long Island Sound, N.Y. Trout mature by their second year (10-12 inches). Spawning occurs several times a season in estuaries. Thousands of eggs are released during each event. Fertile eggs incubate as they float on tidal and wind currents carrying them into sea grass beds. They remain there for six to eight months. As fingerlings mature and grow, they move out of estuaries and into coastal areas. Mature fish feed on shrimp but eat mullet silversides, croaker, anchovies, pinfish, and menhaden when shrimp are scarce. Juveniles feed on shrimp and small crustaceans. Healthy, pollution-free estuaries are critical to sea trout long-term survival. Tidal creeks and shallow grass beds provide important nurseries for young trout. These areas give cover for maturing fish. Florida has a closed season on sea trout that differs by region. The Southwest Florida season is usually closed in November and December. Legal limits and size also vary by region. All rules are subject to change. Be sure to check local regulations before fishing. Bait shops usually have this information. When fishing for trout, keep in mind they are bottom feeders. Try jigs tipped with shrimp, sinking plugs and spoons. Low, incoming tides are best. Trout can stand high turbidity so they often chase baitfish into mangrove roots. Once caught, store any catch on ice as the fish spoils easily. This fine, delicately flavored meat is a favorite. So now you are ready to cast our bait along any of Southwest Floridas beaches or estuaries. Good luck! Lee Belanger is a seasonal volunteer trail and canoe guide at Collier-Seminole State Park.

You do the best you can, and then you try to put the decision behind you and deal with the grief. The incredible advances in veterinary medicine in the past couple of decades have made the decisions even more difficult for many people. Not too long ago, the best you could do for a seriously ill pet was to make her comfortable until that wasnt possible anymore. Nowadays, nearly every advantage of human medicine from chemotherapy to pacemakers to advanced pain relief is available to our pets. But the addition of high-level care shouldnt change much when it comes to easing suffering: If you can have a realistic expectation that a course of treatment will improve your pets life rather than simply prolong it then those options should be considered. But you must also ask yourself: Am I doing right by my pet, or am I just holding on because I cant bear to say goodbye? If its the latter, you know what decision you have to make. Many people are surprised at the powerful emotions that erupt after a pets death, and they can be embarrassed by their grief. Often, we dont realize were grieving not only for the pet we loved, but also for the special time the animal represented and the ties to other people in our lives. The death of a cat who was a gift as a kitten from a friend who has died, for example, may trigger bittersweet memories of another love lost. Taking care of yourself is important when dealing with pet loss. Some people the Its just a pet crowd wont understand the loss and may shrug off grief over a pets death as foolish. I find that the company of other animal lovers is very important. Seek them out to share your feelings, and dont be shy about getting professional help to get you through a difficult time. Choosing to end a pets suffering is a final act of love and nothing less. Knowing that your decisions are guided by that love is what helps us all through the sad and lonely time of losing a cherished animal companion. Quality of life is everything when making decisions for an elderly pet.Its the one for which theres often no easy answer: When is the right time to say goodbye? Choosing to end a pets life is the hardest decision we make when it comes to our pets, and we can tell you from decades of experience that its a decision that never gets any easier. Your veterinarian will offer you advice and support, and friends and family can offer you sympathy, but no one can make the decision for you. When you live with an elderly or terminally ill pet, you look in your pets eyes every morning and wonder if youre doing whats best. Everyone makes the decision a little differently. Some pet lovers do not wait until their pets discomfort becomes chronic, untreatable pain, and they choose euthanasia much sooner than others would. Some owners use an animals appetite as the guide when an old or ill animal cannot be tempted into eating, they reason, he has lost most interest in life. And some owners wait until theres no doubt the time is at hand and later wonder if they delayed a bit too long.

All that I have to do is enter the name of the nearest star or galaxy into the search box on Google Sky. Or I can enter into the search box the co-ordinates: right ascension and declination. Solid boned humans are more familiar with terra firma, with the finding of land locations by latitude north and south and by longitude east and west. These markers remain fixed through quake and tsunami and global warming. And there is plodding over it all, under foot. And plotting for securing resources perceived as fixed and dwindling. Heavy handed it be, and hard hearted, solid sans internal body cavity. But the celestial latitudes that are declination and the celestial longitudes that are right ascension must be updated, reviewed every 50 years. This is not due, as one might be inclined to suppose, to the fickleness of the sky. Rather it is necessary to update celestial co-ordinates due to the wobble of the Earth. It is the misnamed terra firma that wobbles and waffles under the sway of the gravitational pull of moon and sun. But I do go on. And you are right to assume that beneath the invisibility cloak of my pirate ways I am merely buying time. Or wasting time, profligate wastrel. But pirates do not waste time. They extravagantly pour time out as libation to love. It is a hard rain, coming continuously, supplied copiously, fully expressed corporality. It is act of creation, indecent in its insistence. It is time as poetic scansion, bursting like fragile bubble out of the impossibility of non-existence. Like Brownings lyric love, half angel and half bird, all of a wonder and a wild desire, there is timely take off. Up beyond the wobble, flying high and flying blind, flying in the face of and flying in the teeth of, there is merely flying. No solid bones, no bones about it. A waif is all, like a piece of property washed up by the sea, unclaimed, stolen goods thrown away by thieves in the night. There is merely flapping, random movement wafting in a viscous buoyant sky for the stray and homeless, unowned and found merely by chance. And then soarer sweet comes suspended, space between thoughts, luminescence that has remembered the big bang in body, tonality that sings music of the spheres. You were seen in the sky by the ancients, and named into existence through myriad narratives though you are nothing but star dust spiraling out of control. The comet trails of your hair weave webs beyond belief. Who can count your ways or name your loves? You are merely flight, fancy, figment. And you are all in all. Sky bury me in your uncharted blue.

BUSINESS & REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE NAPLES BUSINESS INDUSTRY BSECTIONWEEK OF MARCH 11-17, 2010 WEEK at-a-glance Ways of the world Preferred Travel showcase at Pelican Bay benefits The Immokalee Foundation. B9 New homes on the wayBCB Homes breaks ground for enclave on Gulf Shore Boulevard North. B11 Possibly the most important question facing investors and corporate borrowers is, Are we about to see higher interest rates? It was the $64,000 question six months ago. Its still squarely in front of investors/borrowers and still unanswered. The credit crisis that began in 2008 reached a panicked crescendo in early 2009. This panic translated into U.S. Government bonds becoming the safest haven on the planet and, accordingly, their prices rising. Of course, this safety was debatable then and, in light of all the budget deficit issues, is still an open item. But nonetheless, it was a worldwide opinion in late 2008 and early 2009. As the world equity markets recovered and as liquidity and credit once again became available, the U.S. Government bond market lost the premium awarded as being the safest asset on the planet. Safety was not worth the extraordinary premium. The 30-year bond peaked in price in midDecember 2008 and yielded a lowly 2.5 percent. The 30-year U.S. Government bond now yields 4.6 percent. For market technicians, the 30 year U.S. Government bond is of keen interest inasmuch as it is kissing a 30-year trend line. Yes, U.S. Government bond yields have fallen from 15 percent in September 1981 to a current yield of 4.5 percent. For 29 years, wind has been in the sails of long-term bondholders and those with variable rate debt obligations; the former realized sizeable price appreciation and the later benefited from a reduced cost of financing. The charts suggest that this long-term trend will be broken. You dont have to be a technical guru to know that a break of a 30-year trend of rising bond prices (and falling rates) is significant. But will it happen? Not necessarily. And if it happens, does it mean that rates will skyPoints to ponder about interest ratesSEE MONEY, B6 Like father, like sonHes not a doctor, but Tom Garlick shares many of his dads best qualities. B2 Just over a year ago, Southwest Florida gun stores experienced a frenzy of buying that industry veterans had never seen before. Store shelves were bare. Customers plunked down thousands of dollars on ammunition. The rush on weaponry was the result of regime change in Washington. Sales soared amid fears that the new administration would move quickly to institute bans on guns. More than one year later, gun shops continue to coast on the wave of fear and uncertainty that initiated a rash of gun and ammo purchases. Shoot Straight, a chain of stores based in the Orlando area, is opening its first Southwest Florida location on Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers. Gators Gun Werks, a new local shop, opened at the end of last year in Naples. Wolf Gunworks, an out of the way shop in Port Charlotte, doubled its size by 1,000 square feet. The owner is considering opening a second location. Fear is a commodity, says Josh Hackman, the general manager at Fowler Firearms and Gun Range. Aside from the fear of government, the recession and the expectation of higher crime and violence because of it also serves to motivate customers. The store has a well-lit, wide open showroom with three tables, vending machines, top-40 music piped in over the speakers, Fox News playing on the TV and the requisite guns and rifles hanging behind the counter.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 11-17, 2010 When a man is a respected doctor, its often naturally assumed that his kin will follow in his footsteps. And Tom Garlick did consider it, though he didnt necessarily have his fathers aptitude for science and math and he never could quite muster the enthusiasm for medicine. What he did have a talent for, though, was turning a good argument. My mother always said Youve got an answer for everything, and sometimes youre pretty convincing even though I know youre wrong, he says with a chuckle. His swift tongue and carefully chosen words often got him into trouble as a youngster. Take, for instance, the time hed had enough of his seventh grade teacher picking on a fellow students stuttering problem. He blew up at the teacher, accusing her of discrimination, an outburst that landed him in the principals office. I had a desire to stick up for the underdog, Mr. Garlick says. Turns out, thats exactly what a lawyer does. Several decades later, Mr. Garlick is just as respected as his father was in his profession, though instead of sharp instruments he uses his sharp tongue to get results. Today clients find him at the helm of Garlick, Hilfiker & Swift LLP, the law firm he opened earlier this year with fellow longtime Naples attorneys Alan Hilfiker and Richard Swift Jr. The three, each offering his own area of expertise, nicely complement one another as a whole. Mr. Hilfiker focuses on trusts and estates, Mr. Swift on general business and corporate clients with a concentration on banking institutions, and Mr. Garlick on residential and commercial real estate and development. We dont try to be all things to all people, Mr. Garlick explains. We are a boutique law firm with a whole lot of experience to back it up. Consider Mr. Garlicks experience. As a young Georgetown University graduate with a dream of being as great a trial lawyer as the famous criminal trial lawyer Edward Bennett Williams, he returned to his native Rochester, N.Y., where he believed he had a better chance of building a successful practice. There he headed up a boutique litigation firm of 12 attorneys until a large firm, Harter, Seacrest & Emery LLP, noticed he had passed the Florida bar and approached him about opening up its Naples office. Mr. Garlick had taken the exam with the hope of getting to Florida sooner rather than later. The offer couldnt have come at a better time. It was the perfect opportunity for me to change my approach to my practice, he says, noting that he would have to go from litigation to real estate and business practices. Its not like I was going to say, no, dont make me leave lakeeffect snow, he jokes. It was 1981, and Naples was lacking considerably in sophisticated law practice. Reluctant to use local firms, residents were instead using law firms up north. Not knowing a soul in the area, Mr. Garlick took the opportunity to develop the practice here. As the partner-in-charge for the next 16 years, he gained a loyal following of business and corporate clients.Today, as he looks at the law landscape of Naples, times have definitely changed. Mr. Garlick counts approximately 26 large law firms with offices in Naples, but he has chosen to go out on his own, something he originally did in 2001 after leaving Harter, Seacrest & Emery. When his longtime partners retired in 2008, he looked to Mr. Hilfiker and Mr. Swift to join him in a new venture.What sets us apart is our areas of focus and our years of experience, he says. But its not only he and his partners he speaks of. His staff is also very focused and committed. In fact, some have been with Mr. Garlick as long as 30 years. Its his wife of 45 years, however, who has stuck beside him the longest. I made the right choice the first time, he says. When not vacationing with his wife or representing a client, you can find Mr. Garlick biking, boating or fishing, some of his favorite pastimes, or devoting his time to organizations that have had a significant impact on Naples, including the Philharmonic, the Chamber of Commerce and the Economic Development Council. Naples has been good to me, and I have an obligation to give back, he says. BUSINESS PROFILE Like father, like son?

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 11-17, 2010 THE MOTLEY FOOL Investing is serious business, not a game. Still, oddly enough, there are useful lessons we can draw from poker. Lesson 1: You dont have to play every hand. One of the quickest ways to make your chip stack disappear in poker is to blindly play every hand dealt to you. Waiting for a long-shot hand will usually disappoint you, while waiting for something like a pair of kings gives you a much better chance of seeing a return on the money youre wagering. In investing, youll usually do better investing in solid and predictable performers that you can buy for a good price, rather than investing in shaky long shots. Sure, the long shots might deliver a bonanza return but they probably wont. Seek great, growing companies at attractive prices. Lesson 2: Play your cards right. Listen to Kenny Rogers: You got to know when to hold em and when to fold em. In both poker and investing, youre faced with continually changing information. The best Lessons From Poker What Is This Thing Called The Motley Fool?Remember Shakespeare? Remember As You Like It? In Elizabethan days, Fools were the only people who could get away with telling the truth to the King or Queen. The Motley Fool tells the truth about investing, and hopes youll laugh all the way to the bank. Inexpensive Trading Q What do brokerages charge for trading stocks? K.M., Goshen, Ind.A Traditional full-service brokerages such as Morgan Stanley Smith Barney have been known to charge hundreds of dollars to buy or sell some stocks. Meanwhile, the discount brokers of yesteryear, such as Schwab, Fidelity, TD Ameritrade, E*TRADE and Scottrade, have grown to resemble their full-service brethren in many ways, offering stock research, banking services, financial planning and more. Their commissions are different, though, typically around $10 or less per trade. Dont just focus on commission costs, though, when seeking a brokerage, especially if you dont trade often. Learn more about how to choose the best one for yourself at www.broker.fool.comQ What does float refer to in the insurance world? S.B., HoustonA Warren Buffett, who heads insurance giant Berkshire Hathaway, explained it well in his 1997 letter to shareholders: (F)loat is money we hold but dont own. In an insurance operation, float arises because premiums are received before losses are paid, an interval that sometimes extends over many years. During that time, the insurer invests the money. Typically, this pleasant activity carries with it a downside: The premiums that an insurer takes in usually do not cover the losses and expenses it eventually must pay. That leaves it running an underwriting loss, which is the cost of float. An insurance business has value if its cost of float over time is less than the cost the company would otherwise incur to obtain funds. But the business is a lemon if its cost of float is higher than market rates for money. Learn more about the fascinating insurance world from the industry itself at www.iii.org. Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us. Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & Enrichpoker players and investors are those who not only make the most accurate analysis of the available information, but use that analysis to make good decisions. Think of IBM. After being a blockbuster performer in its early years, the company seemed sleepy a few years ago, operating in the mature PC and mainframe markets. But it retooled itself, offering higher-margin software and services. Those who saw its potential and invested in it have been rewarded. Lesson 3: Be choosy with your all-in moments. Top-notch poker players have run through a lot of mental math to determine that the odds are heavily in their favor before they make a big bet. If your all-in investing moments are restricted to times when the market is trading near or below its long-term average valuation, then you can shift the odds of marketbeating returns further in your favor. Its rarely smart to go all-in on a single stock, though diversify away that risk. So wait for the best investment opportunities be convinced that the odds are in your favor. I rode EMC, the electronic storage giant, from 1995 until 2001. I should have sold, but I held on, believing that the companys storage business would be immune from the dot-com losses. The stock went from around $90 to about $17, and I lost about $300,000. Lesson learned. Bob, onlineThe Fool Responds: Remember, Bob, that your 1995 purchase price was likely in the $2 range, split-adjusted, so you still came out ahead if you sold at $17, increasing your investments value sixfold or more. Its true that had you sold at the top you would have made much more, but we can never know when a stock is at a peak. Still, many could have avoided losses in the dot-com implosion if they stopped to investigate whether their companies had grown overvalued. In 2000, near its peak, EMCs market cap was north of $225 billion and ahead of IBM. Today EMC is around $35 billion, while IBMs value is around $165 billion. If you had not been sure of its value back then, you might have sold at least some of your shares, to lock in some gains. The Motley Fool TakeGlobal consumer-goods giant Unilever (NYSE: UL) seems to have gotten its store back in order, thanks to innovation, pricing adjustments and ad spending. In a difficult 2009, Unilever saw its volume grow. This was accompanied by broad-based market-share gains that, notably, accelerated throughout the year. Results in developing and emerging markets (roughly half its business) were particularly strong. Volume, arguably the most direct measure of how consumers respond to a companys products, is critical.

MONEYFrom page 1rocket? Not necessarily. A rise in rates would please the bond bears; those who are counting on a rise in interest rates and who have taken anyone of several investment positions that could profit from a rise in rates (e.g. short zero coupon bonds; short bond futures; long put options in bonds, etc.). An increase in rates would benefit those earning an almost zero return on their CDs.Upticks in interest rates have huge negative ramifications for the bulk of Americans and the U.S. economy. There is estimated to be around $50 trillion of U.S. dollar debt: $12 trillion U.S. Government debt; $12 trillion mortgage debt; $2 trillion commercial paper, etc. Here a trillion, there a trillion, and it all adds up.What impact does a 1 percent increase in rates on $ 50 trillion have? It translates into an additional interest payment of $500 billion annually. It is thought that such capital flow will lower current U.S. GDP of $ 12 trillion a year. a 4 percent loss. (Now clearly, the entirety of the $500 billion is not lost by the economy as the recipients of higher bond income will generate more purchases etc.) Those with variable rate financing be it residential mortgages, commercial loans and mortgages, etc. will face higher payments.

The Credit Suisse chart shows the sizeable amounts of resets due in 2010 and 2011 in option adjustable rate mortgages and Alt-A mortgages. But this is just residential mortgages. Most companies finance with floating rate loans tied to Prime or LIBOR. Many times the best investment decision is to play it safe. It isnt about playing it perfectly or threading an investment needle. And whether you are a corporation or an individual or a hospital and/or a nonprofit, you might want to think long and hard about the wisdom of getting a fixedrate loan. The big IF is the rate differential between the lower rate floater and the fixed-rate loan. Talk to your advisers and seek their counsel about your bond portfolio, your adjustable mortgage reset terms, and any other items which would be impacted if rates rose.

NO OTHER STORE LIKE IT IN SW FLORIDA!!! CONTACT US SAVE THE ATTIC!!! Brains translate into big bucks in the workplace, according to a University of Florida study, which finds that bright people have earned at least half a million dollars more by middle age than those who are less intellectually inclined. Smart people start out with modestly higher paychecks, but their income and job status greatly accelerate over time, says Ryan Klinger, a UF graduate student in management and one of the studys researchers. Although we expected mental ability to influence whether someone had a more prestigious job and earned more money, we were surprised by the magnitude of the difference, he says. Over the course of the study, individuals with high intelligence outgained those with low intelligence by more than $580,000. Smart people set themselves apart as they make known their quickness of mind, problem-solving skills and workplace adaptability, Mr. Klinger says. Because of the ease and flexibility with which people with greater mental ability learn and apply knowledge to complex situations, they enjoy much steeper growth in their occupational success over time. Mr. Klinger worked with UF management professor Timothy Judge and graduate student Lauren Simon on the national study published in the January issue of the Journal of Applied Psychology. The researchers analyzed Department of Labor data from a nationally representative set of more than 12,500 people who have been tracked since 1979 when they were between 14 and 22 years old and just entering the work force. In addition, each of these participants took an aptitude test to assess their general intelligence. When the study began, intelligent people earned an average of $1,575 more a year than less intelligent ones, with the gap widening to $16,474 a decade later, Mr. Klinger says. The change was dramatic by 2006 with smarter employees making an average of $38,819 more per year, a difference at least 20 times that of when they started, he says. Huge variations in occupational prestige kept pace with rises in income, Mr. Klinger says. At the end of 28 years, a person of low intelligence moved up from a job at the level of apprentice plumber to that of plumber, while a highly intelligent person rose from a position comparable in status to vehicle dispatcher to one of the same standing as a civil engineer, he says. Not only were intelligent individuals likely to acquire more knowledge and skills through education, on-thejob training and other means, but they also were better at capitalizing on their assets, Mr. Klinger says. They used additional experience along with their superior mental skills to increase onthe-job knowledge, which boosted their careers, he says. If two people had the same level of education, the person of higher intelligence was likely to do more with that education in applying that education or training to a job, he says. Put simply, it is not only the amount one learns that matters, but also the flexibility and ease with which what is learned can be applied and manipulated. With these capabilities, the intelligent have an advantage and one that is likely to translate into higher pay and greater occupational prestige. The gap could widen as the increasingly specialized workplace demands intelligent workers, Mr. Klinger says. As jobs become more complex, we can expect these advantages to increase even more. He cautions against assumptions that brains alone could seal ones fate for life. Hard work, more education and good social skills can make great differences, he says. It might be disheartening to think that intelligence is predetermined to a certain extent by your genes, but I wouldnt want people to interpret our findings to mean they can be born into an unsuccessful life, he says. There certainly were individuals in our study who were able to compensate for their low intelligence and achieve tremendous levels of career success and likewise individuals who because of their intelligence may have seemed destined for greatness but never met those expectations. Even people with little intelligence who acquired additional education and training advanced farther in their careers than those who never sought those opportunities, he says. And other factors besides brains can explain much of a persons success, such as the ability to get along well with other people. Research shows that in some cases people are able to compensate for low cognitive abilities with emotional intelligence, he says. The study examined only how intelligence relates to measures of achievement society uses and not those of individuals, Mr. Klinger says. People often evaluate their own success based on more internal judgments, such as whether or not they enjoy going to work every day or whether or not they have the power to make a difference at their job.

QUALIT T RVICEemployee is strapped with a sidearm. Its a friendly environment. Theres not a bunch of camouflage and animal heads on the walls, says Mr. Hackman, who carries a Glock. He conducts a training course on concealed weapons permits every Sunday. We used to get maybe 12 people and that was good, he says. I had 47 people last Sunday. Most of those people will buy guns and ammo and hopefully, return frequently to the shooting range. While firearm background checks (an imprecise, general measurement of sales activity) in Florida have slowed since the change in Washington, they are still significantly higher than in past years. The sales appear to be driven by two prevailing fears: the government and high crime rates. Yet, gun control appears to be waning the Supreme Court revisited the Second Amendment last week and there are hints that it is leaning toward expanding gun rights as it reviews a Chicago gun control law and crime is significantly down both nationwide and throughout Southwest Florida. Violent crime has also dropped by most local and national measurements. In places like Fort Myers, where some violent crimes have increased, the frequency of crime is still significantly less than it was just five to 10 years ago when the economy was more robust. The numbers mean nothing to Matthew Neuman, whose house was recently burglarized. He was unarmed during that incident and has since taken up shooting and brings his 7-year old son with him to watch. I feel comfortable with a weapon, he said. Women are also shooting in greater numbers and the accessories available show it. There are pinkand raspberrycolored guns for the lady who wants to maintain an air of daintiness while packing heat. Its an equalizer. Theres a lot of empowerment there, says Mr. Hackman, who estimates that 40 percent of his clientele is female. Just up the street from Mr. Hackmans location, the new Shoot Straight gun store and range sports an eye-catching art deco-meets-the-old-west design. The range has a built-in air purification system and will hold an inventory of 1,500 guns. Its one of the smaller stores in a chain that boasts locations in Apopka, Casselberry, Tampa and Lakeland. Another store is set to open in West Palm Beach later this year. Eventually, the concept could be sold nationwide. The number one seller right now is the fear of crime, says owner Khaled Akkawi. Thats a concern that will exist regardless of what party is in power or where the crime rate statistics might be. Mr. Akkawi says he doesnt base expansion decisions on the politics or economics of the moment, since opening up a store usually takes about two years once hes decided on a location. Im in this for the long run. Im not here for the political highs. Id rather have a steady income and sales and just less legislation. FIREARMSFrom page 1 >> Florida is considered to be one of the most gun-friendly states. A concealed weapons permit allows carriers to avoid the three-day waiting period for gun purchases.

In the Moorings and Coquina Florida Realtors plan statewide open houseTwo DiVosta communities in Southwest Florida VeronaWalk in Naples and VillageWalk of Bonita Springs are attracting prospective homeowners with new floor plans, upgrades and color selections. In addition to the new floor plans and newly decorated models, homebuyers are shopping because of the expanded housing tax credit and historic low mortgage rates, according to Stephen Haines, vice president of sales for Pulte Homes South Florida operations, which is the parent company of DiVosta Homes. The active adult and Baby Boomer generation are reigniting the housing market, especially here in Florida, Mr. Haines says. Many of the homebuyers who visit our DiVosta homes are shopping for a second home or lining up their future home in retirement a few years early. He adds that DiVosta communities are experiencing a new trend: attracting young families and the first-time homebuyer who are looking for affordable, quality-built homes in and around the prestigious Bonita Springs and Naples areas. Nowhere in Southwest Florida can homebuyers get it all at this price point: from impressive standard home features in a single-family home and low-maintenance living, filled with a lot of community amenities and near the conveniences of shopping, entertainment and an excellent school district.

Realtors will host open houses on behalf of sellers in neighborhoods and communities across the Sunshine State, giving buyers the chance to visit many homes for sale in just one weekend. This first-ever statewide open house weekend is sponsored by the 115,000-member Florida Realtors. Locally, the Marco Island Area Association of Realtors is participating. Its a home shoppers dream, says 2010 Florida Realtors President Wendell Davis, a broker and regional vice president with Watson Realty Corp. in Jacksonville. For the serious buyer, the opportunity to tour dozens of homes in one weekend is a real time saver. Others who didnt think they could afford a home may be drawn into the market by affordable prices and low interest rates. Its a win-win. The Florida Open House Weekend takes place just ahead of the deadline for the federal homebuyer tax credit. Homes need to be under contract by April 30, and the purchase closed by June 30, to take advantage of up to $8,000 in the tax credit for eligible first-time buyers and up to $6,500 for eligible repeat buyers. This event offers people a convenient way to see as many homes as they wish in one weekend and gives Realtors a chance to be part of this massive effort to match buyers to their dream homes, Ms. Davis says. Blue balloons featuring the Realtor R logo in white 50,000 of them will be on display simultaneously at open houses from the Panhandle to Key West as part of the Florida Open House Weekend.

Every time she sells a home, Ms. Marlow donates 5 percent of her earnings from the sale to a charity of the sellers choice, 5 percent to a charity of the buyers choice and 5 percent to anyone who has referred her business. She calls this the -5-5 Pay It Forward Approach to Real Estate. Bob and Amy Hilliard of Estero worked with Ms. Marlow to sell their home. Carol really impressed me, Mr. Hilliard says. I knew she was right for us when she agreed to not only work with me on pricing, but to also donate a portion of her earnings back to the community in support of my favorite charity. A week after Ms. Marlow listed the Hilliards home, it sold for $265,000, just a few thousand dollars below the asking price of $269,900. As president of the Bonita Springs Lions Club, Mr. Hilliard requested the money be donated to the organization in which he serves. A few weeks later, a check was presented to the club. Ms. Marlow and her husband, Ron, moved to Bonita Springs to be closer to family after living most of their lives in Michigan. She is an agent with John R. Wood Realtors Inc., and the president of Creative Dynamics Inc., a training and consulting organization she founded in 1978. She is a member of the Bonita Springs-Estero Association of Realtors, the Womens Council of Realtors and SCORE. The Collier Building Industry Association gi v es its member s the opportunity to network with fellow professionals including architects, developers, builders, remodelers and designers at their annual reverse trade show. A tool box, tool shed and other prizes will be raffled with the proceeds going to benefit the CBIA Foundation which funds activities to help students pursuing careers in the building industry.

C43 Five plus oneA handful of painters and one potter, all longtime Neapolitans, organize an outdoor show. C21 Fivepluson e Here for the artSee who enjoyed the sights at the first-ever Mercato Fine Art Festival. C41 Heres the cue for seventh annual new plays competitionThe von Liebig showcases gowns, accessories fit for a princess The Naples Players ETC Readers Theatre announces the seventh annual An Evening of New Plays contest. Entries will be accepted through June 15 from playwrights who reside in Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Glades or Hendry counties. Staged readings of up to three finalists will be presented in the Tobye Studio black box theater at the Sugden Community Theatre in September. Contest coordinator Joan Laughlin notes that the evening of finalist readings traditionally sells out, and additional performances have had to be scheduled in recent years. Entries must be non-musical and 10-30 minutes long, and a limit of seven characters is suggested. Any genre is allowed, and entrants can submit up to two works for consideration. Submission must be the playwrights original work, not an adaptation, and not previously published or produced, though they can have been workshopped or presented as a staged reading in locations other than Southwest Florida. Works also may have been submitted one time, but cannot have been a finalist, in a previous Evening of New Plays contest. Playwrights retain all rights to their plays and give rights to The Naples Players for An Evening of New Plays and a limited number of encore readings in other area venues and media. Each finalist also receives a commemorative award and a $100 royalty fee, plus two tickets to the staged public readings and reception afterward. Months of painstaking work by experts and collectors from around the world. Thousands of manhours. Its finally here. The von Liebig Art Center presents the much anticipated Princess Diana: Dresses of Inspiration exhibition showcasing a collection of the late Princess Dianas gowns, shoes, handbags and royal memorabilia March 13 through June 27. Several of the dresses on display were purchased at the Christies auction held just weeks before the princess untimely death. No detail has been overlooked. Even the walls of the Frederick O.

A creation of British designer Murray Arbeid, the gown features a black velvet bodice and a full skirt of scarlet taffeta. << This chiffon-and-lace gown trimmed with ribbon-work flowers and sequins originally had long sleeves and a high neck when Princess Diana wore it on official visits to Portugal, Germany and the Gulf State of Qatar.

The test asks standard personality quiz questions with a cute British flair (Are you keen to get things done?) as well as more esoteric questions, like, Select the colour which best reflects your view of life (I chose blue). The test also asks more cultured questions, like your preferred artistic style: Picasso, Monet, da Vinci or Van Gogh.U.K. Match.coms intellectual approach to dating has even extended to good books. The site has partnered with the Penguin Group, an international publishing house who recently released The Help as well as Nora Roberts Hot Rocks. Now, as Brits search for love, they can also search for a good read to tie them over until they schedule the perfect date. Speaking of good reads, the founder of GoodReads.com, a social-networking site centered on the love of books, was once in charge of LoveHappens.com, a dating site. Literature and romance, it would seem, are often intertwined. Which makes perfect sense to someone who loved books before she loved boys. Reading is an intimate activity, a quiet passion pursued by a solitary The love of a good book SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS ArtisHENDERSON sandydays@floridaweekly.com bookworm. Reading is an escape but it is also a rite, a commune between an individual, an author, and the characters on the page. Motoko Rich recently wrote a beautiful piece in The New York Times where she talks about the private reader, the reader who does not belong to book clubs or discussion groups, the reader who wants to savor alone the experience of a good book. The private reader is also a jealous reader, someone who experiences a twinge of betrayal when another person lays claim to his or her favorite book. I am this kind of reader. Im always glad to find a kindred soul, someone who loves David Sedaris or Barbara Kingsolver as much as I do, but its disheartening to go into specifics, to talk about plot points or hear differing opinions. The experience is unsettling, like listening to a recording of your own voice: Its never like you imagined. If good books can be divisive to some, then they have the power to bring others together. My favorite gifts from past boyfriends have been books: The Little Prince from an earnest boy I dated in college; Shantaram from a man I met during a trip across the Indian subcontinent. My favorite book, though, is the one I am currently reading. On one lazy Sunday afternoon, the Captain and I spent hours strolling the aisles of a local bookstore. My heart raced at the familiar authors and titles, the characters I hoped to discover. Contact Artis >>Send your dating tips, questions, and disasters to: sandydays@floridaweekly.com I couldnt imagine it at first, the idea of delving into a fictional world with another person. But I agreed to give it a go. We bought a collection of short stories. Now, in the evenings, after dinner or a movie or a day outdoors, we settle into the couch and one of us will pick up where we last left off. We read the words aloud in quiet tones, as if the stories were written for us alone.

After the exhibition ends in June, the gallery walls will return to white. By the loving care given to the exhibit by the individual owners of the dresses and all those who have worked to set up the show, its easy to believe that Diana herself would smile down upon the rooms at The von Liebig where some of her most beloved items now hold court. Arranged by the team of dedicated collectors and a renowned textile curator, every piece of Diana memorabilia has been placed for careful appreciation. Ticketholders could spend as little as 45 timed minutes breezing through the collection, but its more likely theyll spend their maximum of two hours savoring it. This could be the last showing in American for several dresses in the exhibition. This is likely the last time many of these dresses will be exhibited, says organizer and collector Suzanne King. Because several of the owners of the dresses have decided not to exhibit them again, the dresses will go back to England for permanent display after The von Liebig event, she explains. Mrs. King owns seven Diana dresses, six of which she has loaned to The von Liebig for Princess Diana: Dresses of Inspiration. The world watched the Peoples Princess as she graced the halls of royal and everyday events, keeping an eagle eye on everything she wore. That included a purple and black cocktail dress Diana made famous on the cover of People Magazine. Although the publication acquired the gown some time ago, this is the first time the garment has been put on display. Visitors to The von Liebig also will see the dazzling designs Diana wore to the Americas Cup Ball and to the premiere screenings of films including Back to the Future, The Last Emperor and Hook (to which she took her young sons). The royal memorabilia room showcases many items that have never been on display to the public before. The exhibition includes letters and invitations, holiday cards, signed photographs, gifts Diana gave and memorabilia from other royals including Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen Mother and Prince Charles. Collectors have employed the use of bios in the memorabilia room to ensure ticketholders can easily understand the items they see. There is also a hard cover exhibition collectors catalogue about Princess Diana: Dresses of Inspiration available at The von Liebig for $25. While the exhibition honors the historical importance of Dianas journey from royal princess to humanitarian, it will also benefit the Pink Ribbon Crusade, a nonprofit organization founded by Mrs. King and several other Diana dress owners to support women with breast cancer. Locally, a portion of the funds raised through Princess Diana: Dresses of Inspiration will be distributed to Bosom Buddies and the NCH Hospital Foundation. DRESSESFrom page 1 The Princess of Wales chose this purple crushed velvet gown designed by Bruce Oldfield on three occasions, the first of which was on an official tour to Portugal in 1987, where she also wore the Spencer Tiara. >> During their official Canadian Royal Tour in 1983, the Prince and Princess of Wales were guests of honor at the historic recreation of Fort Edmonton in Edmonton, Alberta. The invitation requested Dress semi-formal, Klondike Era. For the affair, which was two days before her 22nd birthday, Diana wore a peach silk 1880s period day dress and hat. It is on display in the United States for the first time at The von Liebig Art Center. It belongs to Dr. Michael Smith of Laguna Beach, Calif. Catherine Walker created this cocktail dress for Princess Diana to wear to private functions. Diana sold it as part of the Christies auction in 1997, just weeks before her death. It now belongs to Julie Lakins of Agoura Hills, Calif., who has loaned it to The von Liebig for Princess Diana: Dresses of Inspiration. >> This gown by British designer Catherine Walker was among 79 dresses the princess sold at auction at Christies in June 1997 to raise funds for charity. Diana initially wore it for the 1991 London premiere of Hook, to which she was accompanied by her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. The dress is part of the collection of Suzanne King.DRESS PHOTOS COURTESY OF KENSINGTON PALACE DIANA PHOTO COURTESY OF CLIVE DIXON/REX USAPHOTO COURTESY BDG PUBLISHING INC.>> >>

C8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 11-17, 2010 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY In Fiddler on the Roof, lead character Tevye is known for his little conversations with God, and with himself. On one hand, hell say, and state one side of the problem, only in the next breath to say, On the other hand, and debate the other side. Of course, as he ponders the pros and cons of a situation, Tevye has more than two hands. I feel somewhat similarly about The Naples Players production of Fiddler on the Roof, which runs at The Sugden Community Theatre in Naples through April 3. On one hand, its a classic play, and you cant lose with the many well-loved and popular songs. On the other hand, its a challenging musical filled with comedy and pathos. On one hand, The Naples Players generally put out a knock-out musical every season. But on the other hand, although I found much to like about their current production, it failed to knock me out. But then, on the other hand, this is a community theater.Not the set designers traditionSet designer Matt Flynn usually creates wonderful sets for The Naples Players, sets that sometimes garner gasps of appreciation and even applause from the audience. But the set for Fiddler looks as if someone wanted to use every plank and stick of wood available in the back shop and beyond. And did. Though it sounds strange, my immediate impression upon seeing the set was: Thats an awful lot of wood. It almost looks like an Army barracks, with wooden walls, wooden doors, wooden roofs and even a wooden fence running along the back. I do realize that Fiddler is set in Anatevka, a rundown Russian village where a community scratches out a living, but this set is simply unappealing. The directors notes in the program state that the musical was initially rejected for being too ethnic. But this production suffers from the opposite problem: Its not ethnic enough. I rarely believed that these characters were Jewish. Its not in the look. The rented costumes are great, and most of the adult men grew their own beards to look the part. But something vital is missing. Its missing in the voice inflections and in accents, and in the way the actors hold their arms up in the air while dancing.Highs and lowsBob Staeheli plays a curiously mildmannered Tevye. Even when he stomps his booted foot on the ground or pounds a table, its not done in a forceful way. His Tevye lacks passion and dimension. When he sings If I Were a Rich Man, you doubt hes ever heard a cantor in his entire life. On the other hand, his scenes with his wife, Golde (Mai Puccio), are full of tenderness and humor. Ms. Puccio is a force to reckon with as Golde, with her strong will and her Suzanne Pleshette voice. As they sing Sunrise, Sunset and Do You Love Me? you truly believe theyre a long-married couple. The Dream, in which the cast reenacts a nightmare Tevye allegedly has, steals the show. With Carol Fox as Grandma Tzeitel and Laura Needle as Fruma Sarah coming back from their graves, this scene has an energy and vitality sadly missing from other numbers. The production has highlights, mainly when the characters are singing and dancing. But the moments of acting in between just arent as good. And with 38 performers, the stage can get pretty crowded at times. The cast includes a number of actors from The Naples Players KidzAct program, performing now with the adults. But it also includes a child so young and tiny that he seems out of place. I often felt frightened that he was about to be stampeded by all the adult dancers. Other distractions included the horrible fake moustaches on some of the Russian characters. They looked like the poster children on the signs at your local 7-Eleven explaining why clerks require proof of age from shoppers purchasing alcohol or cigarettes. The actors in Fiddler, for the most part, have sweet voices. A the eldest of Tevyes five daughters, Joanna Mandel, Bianca Prioletti and Tori Hendry do well in Matchmaker. And Evan Alexander is endearing as Motel, the bumbling tailor. Tyler Bishop was a bit boisterous as Perchik, the teacher who questions tradition. The 10-piece orchestra, led by musical conductor Charles Fornara, is superb. Unfortunately, sometimes it drowns out the singers, something thats likely the fault of the people working the soundboard. Some soloists could be heard very clearly, while others couldnt. Good sound people should compensate for that; everyone should be heard. And it seemed as if the mikes werent always turned on or turned off in time. The night I saw the show, backstage chatter on left-on mikes ruined a sweet moment between Tevye and Golde on-stage, and there was a problem with constant static. This is Dawn Lebrecht Fornaras directorial debut with the adults at The Sugden. (Her production of Thoroughly Modern Millie with KidzAct last season was exceptional.) In Fiddler, her staging of Sabbath Prayer is creative and moving.Lacking as a whole Fiddler on the Roof has many moments where it pleases, but for some reason it doesnt hold together well as a whole. It doesnt gel. The parts and many of them are quite wonderful dont come together to make something bigger. Its good to hear the familiar, classic songs performed so well. But this production of Fiddler seems more white bread than rye.

You might want to enter a training program to enhance your skills. Also, consider getting professional help in preparing a brilliant resume. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A pesky health problem should clear up soon. Meanwhile, travel both for personal as well as for business reasons is strong in the Aries aspect this week, and well into the next. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Look for Bovines to be on the move this week, whether its traveling for fun or for business. Other moves include workplace adjustments and, for some, relationship changes. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Geminis who have just gone through a hectic period involving job and/or family matters might want to take some well-earned time out to relax and restore those drained energy levels. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A romantic situation seems to have stalled, just when the Moon Child was expecting it to go forward. Could that be a bad case of miscommunication going on. Talk it over openly and honestly. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Showing a genuine interest in something thats important to a friend, family member or colleague could open a communication line that had been pretty much shut down for a while. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Making a potentially lifechanging decision takes as much knowledge as you can gather, plus determination and patience. Take your time working it out. Dont let anyone rush you. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You should be back on schedule and heading in the right direction after clearing up a misunderstanding. But there could still be some setbacks. If so, correct them immediately.

You need the good vibrations you get from people who care for you. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Investing in an attractive prospect (business or personal) with little or no information can be risky. Avoid future problems by getting all the facts before you act. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Someone close to you might have an unexpected reaction to a decision you feel youre prepared to make. Listen to his or her point of view. It could prove to be surprisingly helpful. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Dont give up yet. That once warm, personal relationship that seems to be cooling off fast could recover with some tender, loving care, and who better than you to provide it? BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of respecting the feelings of others, which is one reason people feel comfortable having you in their lives.

Set in 1914 Africa, Ms. Hepburn plays a Methodist missionary whose mission is destroyed by the Germans following the breakout of World War I. She is rescued by Charlie Allnut (Bogart, who won an Oscar for the role), the skipper of a rickety old tub named The African Queen. Together they brave the perilous waters of the Congo, avoiding the Germans and dangerous rapids in their attempt to sink the gunboat Louisa, thus opening the route to British ships and their way to freedom.This boxed set is light on special features, but what it does offer is pretty nifty. The first disc contains the newly restored print and a one-hour documentary on the making of the film. The second disc is a CD featuring the radio broadcast of The African Queen starring Mr. Bogart and Greer Garson. Also included is a reproduction of the out-ofprint book by Ms. Hepburn, The Making of The African Queen, or How I Went to Africa with Bogart, Bacall and Huston and Almost Lost My Mind, her memoir on the filming of this classic movie.

The Gulf Coast Chapter of the U.S. National Committee for UNIFEM and the Sarasota Film Festival are partnering for the first time to run their events concurrently April 9-18. UNIFEMs Through Womens Eyes will screen films during the first weekend of the Sarasota Film Festival at Regal Cinemas Hollywood 20 in Sarasota. The partnership builds on the synergy between our two organizations, says Dr. Connie Ellis, president of the Gulf Coast Chapter of UNIFEM, which has presented Through Womens Eyes since 2000. We share the common goal of bringing the world to Sarasota through film. By working in partnership, our two groups can better allocate resources to best serve the community. Mark Famiglio, SFF president and executive director, adds, Together, we have 21 years of experience presenting domestic and international films that entertain, inform, challenge and inspire. Through this partnership, we hope to broaden and enrich the film festival experience for filmgoers and filmmakers. The programming and community outreach focus of the organizations remains unchanged. As it always has, Through Womens Eyes will showcase independent documentaries and short films by women directors that increase awareness of the lives of women around the world. Invited directors will lead post-film discussions on April 10 and 11, and talk informally with filmgoers at a Filmmakers Reception on April 10. Encore screenings of the Through Womens Eyes films will be integrated into the SFF schedule throughout the 10-day event. This years festival will screen more than 160 films and will also include education programs, special events, talkbacks and panels with some of the leading voices in film today. The two groups share a similar history of growth and a commitment to yearround, collaborative work in the community. Both presented film festivals that began modestly and grew over the years, culminating in record-breaking 2009 seasons. Through Womens Eyes drew sold-out audiences to its two-day screening of 16 films by women directors, while SFF attracted 45,000 attendees over the 10 days. Since 1993, the all-volunteer Gulf Coast Chapter has presented programs and events to raise awareness and funds for UNIFEM, the womens fund at the United Nations, which supports womens empowerment and gender equality programs in more than 100 developing nations throughout the world. Over the years, SFF has expanded to include year-round programs targeting independent and student filmmakers, atrisk youth, arts organizations and social service agencies.

More than 30 films will be screened between the three sites. Festival board member and filmmaker Clayton Hemmert will introduce the films and facilitate discussion afterward at each session. Since 1981, the annual Black Maria Film + Video Festival, which takes its name from that of the worlds first motion picture studio built by Thomas Edison in 1893, has been an international juried competition and award tour. Its mission is to advocate, exhibit and reward cutting-edge works from independent film and video makers. The festival is known for its national public exhibition program, which features a variety of bold contemporary works drawn from the annual collection of 50 or more award-winning films and videos. Some notable elements that differentiate the Black Maria include: Until the current fiscal downturn, the festival annually distributed at least $10,000 in filmmakers honoraria awards and anticipates restoring that tradition when funding improves. The festival focuses on short works that reveal an inventive, insightful and uncommon spirit. Every program presentation in the tour is custom curated to specific audiences. Every program is presented in person by the festivals director or assistant director, who tour across the United States to more than 65 institutions every year. The 2010 festival opened Feb. 5 at New Jersey City University and will travel to cities in New York, Oregon, California, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Georgia, Massachusetts, Vermont, Delaware and Washington, D.C.; before arriving in Southwest Florida. Cost per evening of the festivals Southwest Florida stop is $7 for adults and $5 for children; one $15 ticket will cover admission to all three events.

His work can be found in private collections and major museums, including the Bass Museum, the Fogg Art Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Polk Museum. Aside from being an accomplished artist, Mr. Segalman has been a sought-after and highly respected teacher for more than 30 years. A master of many media, he was influenced by watercolor early in his artistic career and it remains an important form of expression in his work.

The Fort Myers-based company tackles the titans of literature next, in All the Great Books (abridged). Following the comic format of the other abridged plays, All the Great Books opens Friday, March 12, at the Foulds Theater at the Alliance for the Arts. It purports to reduce all of western literature into a single evenings entertainment performed by three actors. No classic, from Beowulf to War and Peace remains safe from the slings and arrows of outrageous parody. The New York Times calls the play an intellectual vaudeville. The show could be called Great Lits Greatest Hits. The play goes over every book you should have read in high school but probably didnt. The trio of actors takes the audience through 83 great books. The Iliad and The Odyssey are combined as a joint sketch called The Oddity. Little Women is explained in terms of football plays on a blackboard. And Dickens A Christmas Carol becomes a steamy episode of the television soap opera Port Charles. Along the way there are arguments about political correctness, censorship, the literary canon that are interspersed with lots of props and silly costumes. All the Great Books stars Theatre Conspiracys original abridged actors Jordan Wilson, Jesse St. Louis and Christopher Brent and is directed by Rachael Endrizzi. Performances are at 8 p.m., Thursday, Friday and Saturdays with one Saturday matinee at 2 p.m. March 20. Tickets are $22 or $10 for students.

PLAYSFrom page 1 The season of love, laughter and comedy continues at The Naples Players. Next up in the Tobye Studio black box performance space at the Sugden Community Theatre is Crazy Mary, a serious comedy by A.R. Gurney. Described by TheatreMania as a play with riveting moments of theatre, Crazy Mary has an intriguing plot: In an attempt to account for the family inheritance, the scion of a wealthy Buffalo, N.Y., clan and her willful, college-age son visit their long-lost cousin, Mary. The catch: Mary lives in an asylum and has barely spoken in years, forcing mother and son to employ radical ends to get through to her. Director Paul Graffy says, The journey to renewal is at the heart of this wonderful play. The five-person cast consists of Vic Caroli, Diane Davis, Ann Hoover, Erin Laughlin and Chris Valente. Set designer is Pat Ashton, and costumer is Ulla Doose. Opening night is Wednesday, March 24. Performances are at 8 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday through April 17.

C32 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 11-17, 2010 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY TROLLEY TOURS Tuesdays in March (2, 9, 16 & 23) Operating 11am 2pm Leaving from Ave Marias Town Center (next to Tropical Smoothie) Please call to make a free reservation. Trolley hours subject to change without notice. Limited seating available. Call for details.www.AveMaria.com 239.304.1236 A tete-a-tete is a private conversation between two people. The word is French and means head to head or private conversation. In the late 1800s, furniture designers created a sofa by that name. Two seats were joined together in an S-shape so the seated people faced each other. The pair could lean a bit and have a confidential conversation. Later a third seat was added to make a round tete-a-tete sofa for three people. It was often placed in the center of a large room, perhaps a hotel lobby. Upholstery was as extravagant as possible, with tufting and fringe. Modern versions of these sofas are made today with simple fabrics in modern, often abstract, patterns. In February the Carlsen Gallery in Freehold, N.Y., sold this three-person tete-a-tete for $1,035. Ms. Kovel answers your questions: Q: I have an 8-inch vase marked Rosemeade. Is it old? A: Rosemeade Pottery was in business in Wahpeton, N.D., from 1940 to 1961. It was owned by Laura A. Taylor and her husband, R.I. Hughes. Art pottery and commercial wares were made. The company was also known as the Wahpeton Pottery Co. Rosemeade vases usually sell for under $100. Q: My Waterbury calendar clock has white marks on the paper face. It looks like Wite-Out, but I believe it might be caused by a solvent used to clean the clock. What can I do about the white spots? The clock dial is enclosed in an eight-sided case with a short drop for the pendulum. Can you tell me when this clock was made?A: Paper clock dials should not be cleaned because the result usually is worse than the original problem. You can buy a reproduction dial for your clock by searching on the Internet or trying some of the sources listed in the directory on our Web site, Kovels. com. Waterbury Clock Co. was founded in Waterbury, Conn., in 1857. Waterbury drop octagon (also called schoolhouse) calendar clocks were popular from about 1880 until the 1920s. Waterbury bought Ingersoll in 1922 and became IngersollWaterbury Co., so your clock was made sometime before 1922. Drop octagon calendar clocks were offered in the Waterbury 1893 catalog for $5 to $7. Value today for a clock with a perfect dial is about $400. Q: I saw a bronze bust at a yard sale a couple of years ago that looked just like my Uncle Norm, so I bought it for a couple of dollars. I use the bust (Uncle Norm) to hold my bedroom door open. Its very heavy and is signed A. Rodin on the back. Under the head it says, Alexis Rudier Fon Paris. What is it worth?A: Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) was a well-known French sculptor. Many of his bronze sculptures were cast by Alexis Rudier, who had a foundry in Paris. A French forger, Guy Hain, used many of the original molds from Rudier to reproduce works by Rodin and other sculptors. These were marked with Rudiers name without his consent. Hain sold the bronzes as originals to unsuspecting art dealers. Hain was arrested in 1992 and sentenced to four years in jail. After his release, he again made bronzes marked with Rudier's name. He was arrested in 2002 and sentenced to five more years. Hain made thousands of copies of works by Rodin and other sculptors. Yours probably is one of the copies. Q: I have a sculpture of the goddess Minerva by Oswald Schimmelpfennig. Whos he?A: Oswald Schimmelpfennig (1872-c. 1944) was a freelance artist and sculptor who did work for Gladenbeck, a foundry in Berlin, Germany. He worked from the 1890s until at least 1933. Schimmelpfennig made statues of carved marble as well as bronze. Many of his works were political. Q: I would like to know if Avon products are still collectible. I have an Avon bottle shaped like a golf cart carrying two sets of golf bags and clubs. It still contains Wild Country After Shave and is in its original box. Is it worth anything?A: Avon made the golf cart container for Wild Country After Shave in 1972 and 1973. The containers usually sell for $10 to $15. Tip: Rearrange lamps, figurines, vases and other knickknacks on tabletops. If you dont, the exposed wood will be lighter than the covered sections under the ornaments.

The oysters, crab and lobster cakes, entrees of spiced yellowfin tuna and a 10-ounce filet with blackberrycabernet sauce and a side of butternut square with brown sugar and almonds made for an outstanding meal. A warm wedge of Grandmas apple pie proved the crowning touch. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Fuji Sushi Bar & Asian Bistro, 6355 Naples Blvd., Naples; 593-5550 This relative newcomer manages to accomplish what many of the big boys dont: It delivers first-rate Asian fare with style and flair in an intimate and peaceful setting. Owners John and On Augsondthung are from Thailand but have a firm grasp on the intricacies of sushi, which Mr. Augsondthung expertly constructs while his wife handles the front of the house and an uncle takes care of the hot Thai dishes. A Fuji lobster roll melded tempura lobster, avocado, asparagus, scallions and masago. Another clever dish is called tuna chips, which blends raw tuna, avocado, scallions and a spicy sauce with tortilla chips. Pad Thai devotees will swoon at Fujis version. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: IM Tapas, 965 Fourth Ave. North, Naples; 403-8272 Theres nothing puny about the small plates that emerge from the kitchen at IM Tapas. Each looks like a work of art and possesses big, fresh flavors that reveal the passionate dedication to this classic Spanish cuisine of its creators, chefs Isabel Polo Pozo and Mary Shipman. A polished staff and stylish dining room add to the warmth and conviviality at this off-the-beatenpath gem. Highlights from a recent meal included fresh anchovies in garlic, chorizo in cider, wild bonito with pomegranate seeds and pomegranate foam, duck breast with figs and port wine reduction, bacalao-stuffed peppers and a plate of stellar artisanal cheeses. While not in one of the citys popular dining areas, it could easily hold its own among them. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Mister Five, 1716 Airport Road South, Naples; 262-1555 This tiny establishment packs a big diner punch with its down-home menu on which everything yes, everything costs $5. Its as close to a Jersey diner as youll find in these parts (with better prices) and is the brainchild of 20-something Anthony Chinaglia, whose family hails from the Garden State. Breakfast is served all day, including tuxedo pancake (with dark and white chocolate chips and chocolate sauce). We tried super crisp chicken wings with a just-right hot and sweet sauce; a Cape Cod salad, with lettuce, dried cranberries, apple slices, walnuts, tomato and onions; a creditable Philly cheese steak; and a fried fish sandwich that was surprisingly good given that said fish was inexpensive basa. I cant think of a place other than fast-food joints where you get food for this price and none that equal its quality. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Saffron, 2059 Pine Ridge Road; 331-3319 Saffron is a little tough to find tucked into a shopping center obscured by a gas station, but its worth the effort. With the help of several friends, I sampled several dishes and found them all well prepared, combining fresh ingredients and that heady mix of seasonings that makes Indian food so addictive. Spinach dip with house-made cheese spread on fresh naan was a delicious beginning. We also enjoyed a sampler plate containing samosas, pakoras and kabobs served with mint chutney. Salmon cooked in a tandoori oven was moist and well seasoned. Rogan josh, a classic lamb curry, paired well with Bombay dal, a savory cumin-scented lentil, onion and tomato dish. From the dozen or so breads, we sampled keema naan, stuffed with ground lamb; kabuli naan, which contained cashews and raisins; and paneer kulcha, filled with house-made cheese, coriander and onion. All were tender, warm and delicious. Mango kulfi, a frozen blend of mango puree, cream and sweetened condensed milk, proved a great ending to a delicious and economical meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Trulucks, 698 Fourth Ave. South, Naples; 530-3131 It may be a crab house, but Trulucks has the look and feel of an upscale supper club, with service to match. The tuna tartare tower looks like a seafood version of a trifle, with layers of tuna, crab, tomato, avocado and pineapple drizzled with a citrus soy reduction. This appetizer is worth the trip alone. Miso-glazed barramundi was a white, flaky and mild fish, enhanced by crab fried rice and a generous topping of julienned vegetables. The Nigerian shrimp were enormous, as billed, but not as flavorful or tender as the gulf variety. Plan to share one of the massive desserts. The white cake with almond-studded cream cheese icing served with crme anglaise and raspberry puree made for a satisfying finish. Full bar.

My only question is: What took them so long? The 1265 Airport Road location has done a booming business for years and before that did equally well at the spot on U.S. 41 where Pelagos Caf now operates yet it was always a oneof-a-kind. The new spot is a stylish, comfortable addition that, after less than a month in business in a strip center off Immokalee Road, is packing people in. On the night of my visit, one party of five had called the original location and been told theyd have a better chance of getting a seat at the new place, only to get there and discover it, too, was full. Theres good reason for the crowds: the food is authentically Cuban, reasonably priced and served by people who take great pride in watching customers enjoy their meals. The dining room is spacious and airy, in part because the management has chosen not to cram in every last possible table that would fit. A long, curvy bar dominates one side of the room, serving as overflow seating for diners too hungry to wait for a table. Slender blue-andwhite glass pendant lights make the bar just bright enough. Mustard yellow walls decorated with large Cuban travel posters create a warm, cheery atmosphere. The wine list is modest but has some well-chosen selections, all of which are available by the bottle or glass. We each had a glass of Catena malbec ($9.95) as we munched our way through several pieces of warm Cuban garlic bread. Although the place was busy, our server was vigilant throughout the meal, delivering courses in a timely fashion but without making us feel rushed, and checking to make sure each course was satisfactory. A man Im assuming was owner Luis Fernandez also made regular table checks. We began with Cuban nachos ($9.50), a house specialty, and calamares de la casa ($8.99). The nachos come with your choice of chicken or beef. I chose chicken. Thin slices of fried plantain held goodsized pieces of savory chicken topped with Fernandez cheese sauce, a creamy orange sauce that looked a bit like Cheese Whiz but had a more delicate flavor and lighter consistency. Capers and parsley completed the dish, which was hearty, delicious and ample enough to serve as an entre. The calamari came in a well-seasoned tomato sauce studded with peppers and onions. The squid was extremely tender and was a welcome change from the usual fried preparation. A side salad was fresh and the house dressing oil, vinegar and oregano was light and refreshing. Entrees of ropa vieja ($12.99) and shrimp and scallops al ajillo ($17.99) came next. Ropa vieja, literally translated as old clothes, is a soul-satisfying concoction of shredded flank steak simmered in a light tomato sauce with peppers and onions. Id chosen yellow rice and black beans to accompany it (along with the salad), and both were good, the rice a pale saffron hue, the beans firm and cumin scented, with little bits of crunchy onion on top. The shrimp and scallops were large and sweet, immersed in a sauce of white wine, garlic and capers. Like the ropa vieja, the preparation seemed simple but resulted in great flavor. My companion ordered the moros a blended version of rice and black beans that appears to be the Cuban version of fried rice. It went nicely with the shrimp and scallops, as did a side of yuca with creamy garlic sauce. We also ordered some sweet plantains ($3.49), which were fried to a golden brown and provided a sweet note to balance the spices in the entrees. We felt compelled to try the flan de la casa ($4.75), about which the menu claims nothing is more homemade than the flan, which is still made completely by Senora Fernandez. This classic recipe ensures that this will be the best flan you have ever had. The dish measured up to the hype. A small wedge of the richest, creamiest custard, accompanied by a mound of moist, sweet coconut, it was worth the trip all by itself. The tres leches cake ($4.75) was also excellent, a cross between a cake and a pudding, with a velvety frosting. Considering that it contains three or perhaps four types of milk (sweetened condensed, evaporated, whole and most likely cream), youd expect it to be quite sweet and dense, which it was. From start to finish, it was a lovely meal. Its easy to see why Fernandez the Bull has been around so long. A second location was long overdue.

Earlier this year, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) deployed new home buyer tax credit forms and instructions requiring forms that will force taxpayers to le on paper, rather than electronically. e new home buyer tax credit ling rules are to ward o a repeat of 90,000 taxpayers who fraudulently claimed the credit, according to the U.S. Treasury. Under the new and expanded home buyer tax credit rule, the credit is worth up to $8,000 for rst-time home buyers and up to $6,500 for qualifying existing home buyers, in both cases, who buy a primary residence or have one built. e tax credit is refundable. A credit that is larger than the taxes owed is returned to the taxpayer in the form of a refund. e home can cost no more than $800,000 and qualifying income is limited to a maximum of $125,000 for single taxpayers and $225,000 for joint taxpayers. Get the full scoop online from the IRS First-Time Homebuyer Credit page online. All taxpayers ( rst time and move up buyers) seeking a credit or refund, must use the new IRS Form 5405 First-Time Homebuyer Credit and Repayment of the Credit (Taxpayers must pay back the credit if they sell the home within three years). e instructions, which teach taxpayers what documents are required, are available on IRS FORM i5405. In addition to Form 5405, also include at least one of the following documents: A copy of the HUD-1, Settlement Statement, showing all parties names and signatures, property address, sales price, and date of purchase. For mobile home buyers who dont get a settlement statement, a copy of the executed retail sales contract showing all parties names and signatures, property address, purchase price and date of purchase. For new home buyers who dont get a settlement statement, a copy of the certi cate of occupancy showing the owners name, property address and date of the certi cate. Existing home owners applying for the $6,500 maximum tax credit must additionally prove they lived in their old home for the required period. To do so, options are: File IRS Form 1098, Mortgage Interest Statement. IRS Form i1098 o ers the instructions. Also, supply mortgage interest statements or property tax records or homeowners insurance records. Again, because some of the documents required are not standard tax forms, taxpayers seeking the credit cannot le electronically. ey can, however, use o -the-shelf tax so ware or the IRS Free File online so ware to prepare returns, but they must still print out the return and mail it in with the required documents. In addition to accuracy and compliance, the only other way to speed up any refund is to request, with the return, that the home buyer tax credit refund be deposited directly into a bank account.Copyright 2004 Realty Times.
