ERIC RADDATZ / FLORIDA WEEKLY ILLUSTRATION Companies could one day promote their brands on public beaches, parks and other assets owned by taxpayers if pending legislation is approved. BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.com WHOA! SLOW DOWN, DONT GO SO FAST! Could Rep. Gary Aubuchon and his 159 colleagues in the state House of Representatives have been a tad hasty in tightening the belt? Not that such fiscal discipline isnt admirable in these hard economic times, of course. But the fact is, we may not need to be squeezed next year, at least not as much as their newly proposed, no-frills state budget of $69.2 billion suggests. Now, legislators have a chance to put some of our money problems behind us withoutSEE SELLING, A8 NEWS ANALYSIS For centuries, botanical gardens around the world have featured sculpture throughout their grounds and have also served as a setting for the performing arts.

The images show readers in various stages of approbation or protest in the living room of Mr. Williams.Dear Mr. Williams, Great column about a great guy (Giddyup, Johnny, and Godspeed, Feb. 8-14, 2012). The recent news articles about Marines pissing on the dead enemy and (others) make great news for some. It just goes to show that one aw, shit wipes a lot of atta boys. Military action can bring out the best in men and the worst. In Korea, the taking of the ears of the enemy was a common practice of a number of the nationalities involved. It is no better or no worse than throwing acid in the faces of young women who want to have an education; or decapitation or mutilation of corpses; or displaying these bodies as a visual threat to others. In most cases, the heroics by Marines are swept under the rug and/or considered ordinary. Consider the events that brought about the deaths of Cpl. Jonathon Yale and Lance Cpl. Jordan Haeter. You can Google The Last Six Seconds and read about them. I will not bore you COMMENTARY rogerWILLIAMS firstname.lastname@example.org A satisfied reader A disgruntled reader with other history of the USMC, but it speaks for itself.I would agree that the Marines involved in the recently reported events need to be brought up short and made to be responsible for their behavior and actions.Our oldest (a USAF officer) was in Baghdad in the early days of the Iraqi events. His description of the demeanor of the Marines did me proud. Enough of history. John Bunch is the stuff Marines are made of and is a credit to his family, to the Corps, and to mankind. You said that he was a former Marine. The Corps instills a set of values into all recruits that will last them through the rest of their lives. So there are no former Marines. There are live Marines and dead Marines. Semper Fi, John Bunch, and to all Marines living or dead!

Archbishop Timothy Dolan appealed to church members, Let your elected leaders know that you want religious liberty and rights of conscience restored and that you want the administrations contraceptive mandate rescinded, he said. Obama is now under pressure to reverse a health-care regulation that requires Catholic hospitals and universities, like all employers, to provide contraception to insured women covered by their health plans. Bill Donohue of the Catholic League said, This is going to be fought out with lawsuits, with court decisions, and, dare I say it, maybe even in the streets. In the wake of the successful pushback against the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cures decision to defund Planned Parenthood, the Obama administration should listen to the majority of Americans: The United States, including Catholics, is strongly pro-choice. Rick Santorum most likely benefited from the 24-hour news cycle this week with his three-state win. Exactly one week before the caucus/primary voting, on Jan. 31, The Associated Press broke the story that Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, a $2 billion-per-year breast-cancer fundraising and advocacy organization, had enacted policies that would effectively lead it to deny funding to Planned Parenthood clinics to conduct breast-cancer screenings, especially for women with no health insurance. Linked to the decision was a recently hired Komen vice president, Karen Handel, who, as a candidate for governor of Georgia in 2010, ran on a platform to defund Planned Parenthood. The backlash was immediate, broadbased and unrelenting. By Feb. 3, Komen reversed its decision. On Feb. 7, Handel resigned from Komen. Adding fuel to the ire was news that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services had issued the regulation requiring employer insurance plans to provide contraception. The coup de grace, on primary/caucus day, was the decision handed down by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturning Californias controversial Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriages. For Santorum, in a primary battle with Mitt Romney, it was three strikes, youre in. As a conservative Catholic and father of seven, Santorum has long waged the culture war, with a focus on marriage, abortion and sex. He once likened homosexuality to bestiality. According to the nonpartisan Guttmacher Institute, which studies reproductive health issues globally, in the United States, among all women who have had sex, 99 percent have used a contraceptive method other than natural family planning. This figure is virtually the same among Catholic women (98 percent). According to a Public Religion Research Institute poll, 58 percent of Catholics believe that employers should provide employees with health-care plans that include contraception. Catholic activists who acknowledge the broad use of contraception among their church members, despite its official prohibition, suggest women can go elsewhere to get the preventive care. And if they cant afford to? Loretta Ross, national coordinator of the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective in Atlanta, told me: This rule really allows low-income women, women who are dependent on their health care, to access birth control women of color, in particular ... if you dont want to use birth control, dont buy it, dont use it. But dont block others who do want to use it, who cannot afford it, from accessing it. One possible solution to the debate came from a surprising quarter. Michael Brendan Dougherty, a Catholic commentator, was in church a couple of weeks ago when he heard the priest read out a letter from Archbishop Dolan encouraging Catholics to oppose the president. Dougherty, who supports the churchs opposition to the regulation, suggested to me that a singlepayer health-care option could solve the problem: It would solve this particular problem of conscience, as it has in Europe. The bishops dont like that the government subsidizes abortion or contraception, but they are not in full mode of fury, because they are not being asked to formally cooperate with things they view as sinful. Loretta Ross agrees with the singlepayer solution, but says the current contraception controversy masks a war on women with all this rhetoric about religious freedom and care for not only the pre-born, but now, with the attack on contraception, youre attacking the preconceived. ... Were not going to take it lying down. And as the fight with the Komen Foundation proved, we are a force to be reckoned with. And were actually going to work to strengthen President Obamas stand in supporting contraceptive access. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!, a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the author of Breaking the Sound Barrier, recently released in paperback and now a New York Times best-seller.If Clint Eastwood narrated The Cat in the Hat, the words of Dr. Seuss would instantly take on a menacing authority. He could read the latest worthless United Nations condemnation of Syria and make Bashar Assad tremble. So if youre Chrysler and want to air a propagandistic advertisement implicitly touting your government bailout as whats best about America, Eastwood is a natural frontman. The movie toughguy and former Republican mayor of Carmel, Calif., will make everyone take notice. He will dare you not to believe him. He will invest a sugarcoated narrative of Detroits comeback with every bit of his gravelly voiced credibility. Eastwoods two-minute ad during halftime was one of the most memorable of the Super Bowl (putting aside all the Doritos spots, of course). Eastwood walks toward the camera in a dark tunnel and says, in his slightly threatening near-whisper, Its halftime. Lest you think thats a cue to get up and reload on nachos and beer, he intones, Its halftime in America, too. What follows is a half-baked tale about the revival of the automotive industry wrapped in economic nationalism: Dirty Harry does corporatism. Eastwood says that Americans are hurting and that the people of Detroit know a little something about this. They almost lost everything. But we all pulled together. Now, Motor City is fighting again. We all pulled together? As euphemism, this is clever; as history, it is false. Congress never approved the bailouts. Given the option to do so explicitly, it declined. The Bush and Obama administrations acted on their own, diverting TARP funds to Detroit regardless of the letter of the law. In Eastwoods telling, a legally dubious act of executive highhandedness qualifies as patriotic collective action. What Chrysler and GM desperately needed in their extremity was to go through Chapter 11 reorganization to pare down wages and benefits, shed uneconomical dealerships and ditch unnecessary brands. When the government got its hooks in them, it politicized this process and threw some $80 billion at the companies. Since well never get an estimated $23 billion back, we all must be pulling together behind Detroit still. Amid all the patriotic piety, Eastwood neglects to mention that Chrysler is now 58.5 percent owned by Fiat, an Italian company. The heart-tugging images of Turin, Italy, apparently were left on the cutting-room floor. Walking near the end of his tunnel, Eastwood assures us of our hoped-for national comeback: Detroits showing us it can be done. And whats true about them is true about all of us. Yet if Detroit is the model for our future, we should prepare for national collapse. Yes, it is getting a boost from resurgent auto sales. Otherwise, it remains a byword for urban apocalypse. More than anything, the city is a standing warning of the perils of social disorder and unaffordable, dysfunctional government. It is good that Chrysler and GM are now off life-support, but they took a lot of money well never recover. A simple apology would be nice. Surely, Clint Eastwood could be hired to deliver an impressively sincere-sounding one.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2012 For nearly 30 years, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern Florida has given hope, strength and joy to children who have life-threatening medical conditions. For me, this compelling concept became a reality when, at the foundations annual gala last month, I heard 16-year-old Matt Milligan, a wish recipient, give the keynote address. Matt was born blue and not breathing. He spent five days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. When he was 2 years old, he was diagnosed with ataxic cerebral palsy, a rare but also the least debilitating form of the disease. The doctors told his parents that he would probably never walk. But Matt proved them wrong, Not only did he learn to walk, at age 9 he ran a distance of 15.2 miles and has done so every year since. He also rides a bicycle (with no hands) and a dirt bike, and he skateboards, roller skates and ice skates. About a year ago, Matt developed PKD, a muscle disorder that sometimes locks up the right side of his body when he walks. When that happens, he told the crowd at the Make-A-Wish ball, I just keep going and pretend that Im dancing. Matts neurologist says hes the most successful patient the doctor has ever had. As a young man of strong faith, he holds tight to Philippians 4:13: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, no matter how hard the challenge. Once I set my mind to something, there is no choice; failure is not an option, he says. Matt has learned to live with the limitations brought by ataxic cerebral palsy. He walks flat-footed, and he takes a little longer with a lot of things, such as writing, brushing his t eeth, buttoning his shirt and or combing his hair (to save time, he wears a baseball cap most of the time). Still, this young man considers everyday a gift from God. I dont care if everyday things takes me a little longer, he says. I dont even give it a thought. Matt and his four brothers (Mark, 26; Zak, 17; Vadim, 16; and Oleg, 14 all have been homeschooled. Matt started his journey in photography when he was 9 years old. His brother Mark was about to graduate from the U.S. Army Airborne School in Fort Benning, Ga. His parents bought a digital camera to use at the ceremony, and Matt asked if he could use their old Minolta 35mm. When they all got home and looked at their pictures, Matts were better than the ones his parents took with their brand new camera. Matt has since exhibited several times at the Art League of Bonita Springs. He won an honorable mention in one show and always enjoys great feedback. His work has also been featured in the Naples Daily News and The Banner in Bonita Springs as well as the Weekly Reader. He won first place for landscape photography in the Breakaway Magazine contest and also won an award for experimentation and innovation and one for technical achievement from the Naples Art Association at The von Liebig Art Center. Matt now uses a Canon 40D and has a Canon Rebel XTI as a backup. His career goal is to be a photographer for National Geographic. Matts Make-A-Wish grant enabled him to travel to Washington, D.C., last spring to meet the editor at National Geographic. He also toured the Supreme Court, the National Zoo and the U.S. Capitol. It was a trip of a lifetime, he says, adding, Make-A-Wish is an incredible group of people who work very hard to make sure every detail is perfect to make the wish a real dream come true. I find it incredibly refreshing to meet, interview and write about a young person who is so optimistic, grateful and high achieving. I predict well hear much more about Matt Milligan.

All they have to do is pass four proposed bills, the brainchild of Rep. Irv Slosberg, an east coast Democrat from Boca Raton. For those who read English but remain uninitiated in American culture, naming rights is not listed in the Declaration of Independence or the United States Constitution, nor is it the vision of the Founding Fathers. But it remains a nearly sacrosanct concept used synonymously with the term, ad space. What kind of property should be used for ad space? Anything the state of Florida owns that we could possibly sell, Rep. Slosberg told the Fort Lauderdale SunSentinel recently. Im an entrepreneur, I know how to generate revenue, he added confidently, speaking to the Miami Herald.No, that does not mean selling off state employees, in spite of what some may wish. But it could mean selling ad space where they work and on what they drive. Its innovative thinking, says Rep. Aubuchon, proving not only that hes capable of bi-partisan thought, but of listening to the other fellows idea, whatever it is. Rep. Aubuchon, after all, is a Cape Coral Republican and influential House leader now in the hotly contested race for Rep. Connie Macks seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.Where is this going?At first glance, the possibilities seem countless. For the right price, for example, officials could rename the 1,616-acre Lovers Key State Park after British Petroleum, complete with a tasteful, albeit expensive slogan: The B.P. Lovers Key State Park, where oil and water really do mix. That would work for any state park on the Gulf Coast. For a few million or a few hundred million more, officials could name all 46,000 state-owned acres the Charlotte Harbor Mosaic Fertilizer Preserve State Park, where phosphate and phosphorescence make phine bedfellows after the Minnesota-based mining company that has contributed so much to the Peace River basin over the years. And way down south in Collier on the western edge of the Everglades, why not tag the 20-mile-long Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park simply, U.S. Sugar West, formerly the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park? After all, sugar water has flowed southward into the Everglades for decades, so it would make sense and money.The proposed bills themselvesHundreds of millions of dollars are at stake, and in tough economic times, too. Nevertheless, Rep. Slosbergs initial suggestions show some restraint. House Bills 19, 181, 185 and 1137, sponsored either by Rep. Slosberg himself, or by him in tandem with a colleague (see www. myfloridahouse.gov.) specifically propose selling naming rights to the following: State highways, toll roads, toll plazas and rest areas. State greenways and bike trails, too, not to mention the sides of school busses and school cafeterias are ripe for the pitch, in Rep. Slosbergs view. And for a few hundred million dollars Rep. Slosberg has estimated $600 million in a year why not? In our economic tightness right now, it seems like some of (this) might be a good idea, says Rep. Kathleen Passidomo, a Naples Republican, another bi-partisan thinker, and a member of the Southwest Florida legislative delegation. Like her and the Republicans who dominate the legislature, Rep. Slosberg is not in favor of raising taxes, he has said. Instead, hes in favor of making money the old-fashioned American way: by selling something. Two of the bills HB 19 and HB 181 (school buses and greenways and trails, respectively) have already moved through the subcommittee process in the House. Theyve also received an interested look in the Senate. They, in particular, are most likely to be heard by the entire House in the near future, says Rep. Passidomo. We have to be creative in how we are looking for funding, and its voluntary, she points out. Part of the appeal of these bills is that they create advertising as an option by local governments or school districts, and not as a mandate. Not only that, but they stipulate guidelines: Signs are limited to a maximum size 6 feet by 2 feet, or smaller, depending on the venue. And (in the case of would-be advertising on school buses), there would be no promotion of such products as alcohol or tobacco on school busses or in school cafeterias. As a final plus, money collected from the selling of ad space on public properties would be used to help pay the costs of maintaining those properties roads and facilities, parks and bike paths, schools. Advertising on government property is not a new concept, explains Rep. Aubuchon. For example, when youre driving and you exit the Interstate, you often see blue signs theyre called logo signs, with the names of nearby businesses (restaurants, motels, gas stations, food stores). Thats a form of private-market advertising that helps add money to the transportation budget. So Rep. Slosbergs concept is taking that a step further. It does raise the question: at what point is it too much? But taxes are high enough. This is a way in which the private sector can contribute to the overall revenue stream of state and local governments, through advertising. I feel its a reasonable idea if its done in a tasteful way.Not so fast, palBut one persons reasonable may be another persons ridiculous. Some citizens from both the right and the left of the political spectrum have serious reservations about the name-formoney game on public property. I like the idea of naming a restroom or rest stop the Barack Obama Crap Stops Here Toilet Facility, says Jerry Kennedy, who lives north of State Road 78 in Lee County, not far from the Charlotte or the Hendry county lines. But thats where it stops. State-owned property is owned by the taxpayers and should reflect that. To name a highway as Veterans Highway, for example thats one thing. But to name it JCPenney Memorial Highway is another. In Collier County, Jill Haughie has thought about the issue for a while, especially in terms of parks and greenways, which she adores. I think Im still very opposed, she says. The whole purpose of getting out into Mother Nature is to see her exposed, naked not dressed in advertising billboards and bullets. Unless the ads are for other parks or preserves, or a new green company, or Florida scholarship programs or bird seed. The advertising world has invaded our every waking space already. Isnt advertising the way we solve everything in America now? Through overstatement? Look at newspapers, Florida Weekly included. But some spaces might be fair game, she concludes. Rest stops, buses, and even highways might be OK if its not a Sex in the City or a Have your Vasectomy here, like on I-75. I just dont want to see it in state parks. We need to keep some parts of our civilization uncivilized. By that I mean uncommercialized.. One question posed by many who are considering Rep. Slosbergs proposal is pragmatic: What about state-owned properties that already have names, like the Babcock Ranch Preserve of more than 73,000 acres in Charlotte and Lee counties, or the Ronald Reagan Turnpike? No problem. Rep. Slosberg suggests leaving honorary names on such properties but simply adding the names of sponsors. Another problem would be how to sell the rights and how much to sell for. Prices have not yet been suggested, but minimum lease requirements have: a minimum of a year, for posted signs. Advertising on school busses might be more temporary. If the state follows through on Rep. Slosbergs bill proposals, he estimates a $600 million windfall. We are floating in red ink, we need it, he said recently, referring to the states estimated $3.5 billion deficit while speaking to a daily newspaper.Carpe Diem:Florida Weekly, of course, quickly sprang into action, marrying potential revenue sources with properties to suggest at no charge for consultant services just a few of the remarkable opportuni-SELLINGFrom page 1 YOUR AD HERE

Generally speaking, beaches remain among the most powerful attractors of money in the state. And as luck and law would have it, Floridas 19 million citizens own every inch of every beach roughly from the mean high tide line seaward. Thus, beaches such as those sugarsand miracles sprawled in front of The Ritz-Carlton, Naples, or the Diamondhead Beach Resort on Fort Myers Beach, or Captivas South Seas Island Resort, or the Gasparilla Inn (favorite retreat of the Bush family) in Boca Grande could be sold for signage to any buyer with a ready checkbook. To competitors, for example. Naming rights to the public beach stretching past the front of the Ritz-Carlton could be sold to the Hyatt. The beach in front of South Seas Resort could be sold to the Ritz, and so on. Since politics, like football or baseball, is done as well or better in Florida than anywhere else in the United States, state legislators might take advantage of the 2012 presidential election season to sell naming rights to superPACs, for example. The Florida Turnpike, also known as the Ronald Reagan Turnpike, might, for a very hefty price, become the Barack Obama Road to the Future. Rest stops would provide superb opportunities for hard-ball politics, since they contain toilets. Sponsors might bid to name not only the rest stop but each individual toilet stall say, after county commissioners or state representatives or senators. And what about the countless vehicles the state owns, seen flashing down highways with yellow license plates affixed above their rear bumpers? Often white and late model, they would make superb advertising venues since they probably amount to little more than empty billboards on wheels in the mind of an aggressive advertiser. The same is true of state law enforcement vehicles and even officers. Members of the Florida Highway Patrol, for example, might be bought by the troop to affix company signatures and names to their uniforms and cars, in the same way as professional athletes. Just do it, for example, the Nike slogan, would work well for any highway patrol officer ordering a driver to slow down, speed up, turn left, turn right or simply shut up.A few other helpful ideas BP Beach: Virtually any state beach on the Gulf Coast of Florida could benefit from this slogan. Lovers Key State Park in south Lee County, with its four barrier islands and 1,616 acres, or Delnore-Wiggins State Park in North Naples with its 166 acres and its milelong beachfront could both reap sizeable revenues if state officials recruited the giant oil company to their cause. The American Standard rest stop: Why not name the state-managed rest stops on Interstate 75 in Collier, Lee and Charlotte after private-market sponsors who reflect the highest best use of a rest stop? The American Standard (manufacturers of fine toilet bowls and sinks), for example, or the Specialists in Urology or even the Alka Seltzer Rest Stops (Oh what a relief it is)? The Building Industry Association preserves: On the 73,000 acre Babcock Ranch Preserve of mostly state-owned land, there is no reason legislators might not make millions selling advertising signage to all or parts of the preserve. The Florida Realtors Association Babcock Ranch Preserve or the Building Industry Association Babcock Ranch Preserve, for example, would go a long way toward explaining not only Floridas history of development, but the ironies of relationships between preservationists and capitalists. Bank of America highways: When it comes to state roads and bridges, paying for their repair is sometimes a near monumental task. Which is why Bank of America and others J.P. Morgan, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, GoldmanSachs? could step in by renting expensive signage to champion their support of our roadways. Colliers 32 miles of State Road 90 (from Fifth Avenue South in Naples to State Road 29) could be the Bank of America Roadway: Your homes, your roads, your government, all of it. State Road 78 transecting Lee from east to west could be the J.P. Morgan Highway to Financial Hell, while State Road 776 in Charlotte might become the Wells Fargo Fandango Road. All of which creates a very clear answer to a question asked about 410 years ago, by William Shakespeare. Whats in a name? the poet queried. In the Sunshine State these days, the answer isnt complicated: a hell of a lot of money. Fort Myers Florida Weekly Editor Osvaldo Padilla contributed to this story.
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2012 In My Head, Swing Me Mama and Rhino Protecting Spirit. Prices range from $1,000 to $17,000; 5 percent of all sales benefit the Zimbabwean charity Inter-Country Peoples Aid to help disadvantaged Zimbabweans and Mozambicans on issues such as child welfare, health and environmental sanitation. A temporary gift shop sent up in a tent at the Garden will sell arts and crafts at more modest prices. A percentage of all sales will also benefit Naples Botanical Garden. One of the artists, Patrick Sephani, will be on-site carving most days. He and exhibit curator Vivienne Croisette will attend the Gardens first annual Garden party on Friday, Feb. 18, which also serves as the opening celebration for ZimSculpt. The evening includes a cocktail reception, dinner and exhibit sneak peek. See box for details. Brian Holley, executive director at the Garden, says the ZimSculpt show was highly recommended to him by his colleague at the VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver, which has hosted the show three years in a row. In addition, several members of the Gardens board of directors have Zimbabwean sculptures, also known as Shona art, in their collections, Mr. Holley says. Hes excited to present the show here. I think just providing the opportunity for people to see the quality of sculpture that is being produced in Zimbabwe will be a surprise to most people, he says. But even more important will be the way that the sculptures enhance the experience of visiting the garden. The Zimbabwean stone sculpture movement began about 60 years ago, but it is rooted in ancient tradition. Frank McEwen, the first director of the National Gallery of Zimbabwe and former curator at Muse Rodin in Paris, brought the contemporary Zimbabwean sculptures to light, and they were quickly embraced by the western art scene. Zimbabwe is now known to be the home of some of the top sculptors in the world. One theory states that the word Zimbabwe translates as Great Stone House in the Shona language.

The code, part of the Fair Food Program, is newly in place at most farms across the state as part of a landmark accord with the Florida Tomato Growers Exchange. The Fair Food Program combines the Fair Food Code of Conduct a set of labor standards developed in a collaboration among farm workers, tomato growers and the food industry leaders who purchase Florida tomatoes with a small price premium to help improve harvesters wages. We are truly happy to welcome Trader Joes aboard the Fair Food Program, Gerardo Reyes of the CIW said in a press release. With this agreement, Trader Joes sends a strong and timely message of support to the Florida growers who are choosing to do the right thing, investing in improved labor standards, despite the challenges of a difficult marketplace and tough economic times. While top fast food and food service companies are participating in the Fair Food Program, supermarkets have been slow to sign on, making Trader Joes announcement particularly important. Trader Joes next nearest competitor on U.S. 41 in Naples, Whole Foods, signed with CIW in 2008. Publix has not signed on to the Fair Food Program. CIW members and others plan to start a six-day hunger strike at Publix headquarters in Lakeland, Fla., beginning March 5. An estimated 50 farm workers and their allies faith leaders, students and community leaders from across Florida and across the country will participate. On March 10, day six of the fast, additional Fair Food Program supporters will converge on Lakeland for a protest at a Publix location followed by a 3.5-mile procession to Publix headquarters, where they will join a ceremony to break the fast.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2012 A11 NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATEDementiavilleSwiss health officials have authorized construction of an assisted-living village of 1950s-style homes and gardens designed to remind patients with Alzheimers and similar afflictions of surroundings that they might actually recall and with which they might be more comfortable and secure than they are with modern life. The 150-resident grounds, near the city of Bern, will be similar to a Dutch facility set up in 2009 in a suburb of Amsterdam. To reinforce an atmosphere of normality, reported Londons The Independent in January, the Swiss caretakers will dress as gardeners, hairdressers, shop assistants and the like. Cant possibly be true The varsity girls basketball teams at predominantly white Kenmore East High School near Buffalo, N.Y., have, for several years, apparently, psyched themselves up in a pre-game lockerroom ritual by chanting, One, Two, Three, (n-word (plural))! before running out the door and onto the court. Although the white players this year called the use of the word a tradition (passed down from year to year), and not a racial label, the teams only black player not surprisingly had a problem with it and reported it to school officials. According to a December Buffalo News report, it was always a players-only tradition, and no adult was aware of the chant, but upon learning of it, officials immediately imposed player suspensions and team penalties. The U.S. Treasury Departments inspector general for tax matters revealed in January that the IRS certified 331 prison inmates as registered tax preparers during a recent 12-month period, including 43 who were serving life sentences. None of the 43, and fewer than one-fourth of the total, disclosed that they were in prison. (The agency blamed a 2009 federal law intended to encourage online filing of tax returns, noting that tax preparer registration can now be accomplished online by passing a 120-question test.) (USA Today reported in February 2011 that prisoners filing false or fraudulent tax returns scammed the IRS for nearly $39.1 million in 2009.) Mr. Badr Al-Alyani told a Saudi Arabian newspaper in November that he was nearing the world record for squirting milk from his eye. The current champion, Mehmet Yilmaz of Turkey, reached 2.7 meters (almost 9 feet), and Al-Alyani reports one squeeze of 2.3 meters. He said he will continue training. David Belniak, now serving 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to DUI manslaughter for killing a woman and her adult daughter and her husband in a Christmas Day 2007 car crash, filed a lawsuit from prison in January against the victims family, demanding justice from them in the form of compensation for medical expenses and his pain and anguish. Police records show Mr. Belniak was driving between 75 and 85 mph when he rear-ended the victims stopped car (and that he had alcohol, Xanax and cocaine in his system). Attorney Debra Tuomey, Mr. Belniaks sister, represents him and called her brothers imprisonment government sanctioned assassination. Unclear on the concept Brogan Rafferty, 16, in jail in Cleveland, Ohio, awaiting trial for assisting in at least one murder in a robbery scheme, wrote to his father in December (in a letter shared with the Plain Dealer newspaper) that he was certain God would not allow him to suffer a long prison sentence. That would mean, he wrote, that all my meaningful family members would be dead when he got out. (N)o way God would do that to me. Benjamin North, 26, was apprehended by deputies in Humboldt County, Calif., because they were pretty sure he was the man who used a stolen credit card at a Safeway supermarket in December. They knew this because North, for some reason, insisted that the purchase be credited to his personal Safeway Club card, which he presented to the cashier along with the stolen card.

I usually go right back to sleep, but sometimes I am tired the next day. Is this normal?Answer: This condition is called nocturia and can be caused by a number of dierent issues. It is very common and considered normal for a person to get up once per night to urinate by age 70. This is because as the body ages it becomes slightly less ecient at eliminating uid during the day. However, if you are needing to urinate two or more times per night, it could be due to problems such as an enlarged prostate or other prostate problem in men. In women this could be due to a fallen bladder or urethral problem. It is essential to evaluate the underlying causes for no cturia so that you have the option of treating the minor issues and the oppor tunity to nd something serious early. Treatments could be as simple as modications in your diet or uid intake to simple medications or over-the-counter supplements and even exercise.

Residents of adjacent areas will see and possibly smell smoke from the fire, and fire activities may temporarily inconvenience boaters in the area as well as motorists along BarefootWilliams Road and also possibly Tower Road. The main purpose of prescribed burns is to reduce the dry underbrush and fallen plant matter that can fuel wildfires and also to manage wildlife habitat, explains Jeff Carter, resource management coordinator at Rookery Bay. A major portion of Collier County is comprised of plants that are dependent on fire to maintain species composition and diversity, Mr. Carter says, adding fire-dependent plants include the South Florida slash pine, gallberry, saw palmetto and scrub oaks.Among the benefits of prescribed fires are: Reduction of underbrush and fuels to decrease threat of wildfires. Stimulation of food and seed production and opening sunlit areas for wildlife feeding and travel. Enhancement of the environment for endangered and threatened species including the Florida panther, gopher tortoise, indigo snake and red-cockaded woodpecker. Control of invasive plants. From sea to summit, tour involves paddling, hiking Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and Up a Creek Kayak Tours team up to present a boat-assisted Sea-to-Summit Kayak Tour with a hike to one of the highest points in Collier County.

His distraught parents turned to the David Lawrence Center Crisis Stabilization Unit where he was kept safe and medically supervised.

As he nears graduation, Bills relationship with his family has never been stronger and his future holds endless opportunities.Bill is among one in four in Collier County who suffer from a mental illness.

The Holocaust Museum & Education CenterDriven to Triumph will celebrate 10 years of promoting respect SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYOver the past decade, the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida has engaged more than 75,000 students and 25,000 general public visitors with the sole mission of promoting respect. With that goal ever in mind, the museum hosts its 10th anniversary celebration, Driven to Triumph, as a tribute to Southwest Floridas Holocaust survivors and WWII veterans. The evening takes place Tuesday, Feb. 28, at Naples Luxury Imports. Myra Janco Daniels will deliver the welcome, and Grammy and Emmy awardwinning composer Charles Fox will perform a variety of his hits. Perhaps best known for Killing Me Softly with His Song and I Got A Name, Mr. Fox worked with working with Fred Astaire, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Manilow, Roberta Flack and Lena Horn, among others, and also wrote the theme songs for televisions Happy Days, Wonder Woman, The Love Boat, and Monday Night Football. Mr. Fox is currently working on a commissioned piece that will honor the Israeli athletes killed during the Munich Olympics. I am continually busy; continually writing for the future, he says. He promises to share with the Naples crowd some stories about his 50 years in the entertainment business. He learned to play the piano at the age of 8; at 18, he was studying composition under Nadia Boulanger at the American Conservatory of Paris. Mr. Fox says he looks forward to performing at Driven to Triumph and adds, I am not only interested in meeting the people who support such an honorable organization, I also believe strongly in the work that the museum does. I have been to Holocaust museums all over the world. They are the keeper of the flame of what went on during the Holocaust. Not only is it important to remember so that it never happens again, its important to remember those that lost their lives during this time in history. The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida believes that the support and cooperation of the community is imperative to communicate its mission, and that by engaging the community to see value in everyone, along with the dangers of indifference to bullying, gang violence and hatred, they can win at the serious business of building respect.

Household chemicals linked to lowered response to childhood vaccinations SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYA new study finds that perfluorinated compounds or PFCs, widely used in manufactured products such as nonstick cookware, waterproof clothing and fast-food packaging, were associated with lowered immune response to vaccinations in children. It is the first study to document how PFCs, which can be transferred to children prenatally (via the mother) and postnatally from exposure in the environment, can adversely affect vaccine response. The study appears in the Jan. 25 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Routine childhood immunizations are a mainstay of modern disease prevention. The negative impact on childhood vaccinations from PFCs should be viewed as a potential threat to public health, said study lead author Philippe Grandjean, adjunct professor of environmental health at Harvard School of Public Health. PFCs have thousands of industrial and manufacturing uses. Most Americans have the chemical compounds in their bodies. Prior studies have shown that PFC concentrations in mice similar to those found in people suppressed immune response, but the adverse effects on people had been poorly documented. The researchers analyzed data on children recruited at birth at National Hospital in Torshavn, Faroe Islands during 1999-2001. A total of 587 participated in follow-up examinations. Children were tested for immune response to tetanus and diphtheria vaccinations at ages 5 and 7 years. PFCs were measured in maternal pregnancy serum and in the serum of children at age 5 to determine prenatal and postnatal exposure. The results showed that PFC exposure was associated with lower antibody responses to immunizations and an increased risk of antibody levels in children lower than those needed to provide long-term protection. (Antibody concentrations in serum are a good indicator of overall immune functions in children.) A two-fold greater concentration of three major PFCs was associated with a 49 percent lower level of serum antibodies in children at age 7 years. We were surprised by the steep negative associations, which suggest that PFCs may be more toxic to the immune system than current dioxin exposures, said Mr. Grandjean. The PFC concentrations are similar to or slightly below those reported in U.S. women, and most serum PFC levels in Faroese children at age 5 were lower than those measured in U.S. children aged 3 to 5 years in 2001-2002. www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA36 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2012 TO YOUR HEALTHFree yoga class on the beachIn observance of World Yoga Day, instructor Grace Ballenger will join yoga teachers and schools around the world donating their time for onehour yoga sessions on Sunday, Feb. 26.

The oft-quoted saying is said to have its roots as an African or West African proverb. Among its many notable users are Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist Toni Morrison, who said: I dont think one parent can raise a child. I dont think two parents can raise a child. You really need the whole village. Not surprisingly, the popularity of this proverb has grown exponentially over the years to represent a more global reference to the importance of teamwork, collaboration and compassion. In this day and age, it truly takes a village to accomplish almost anything worthwhile. Such was certainly the case behind Physicians Regional Healthcare Systems recent honor as one of the nations top-performing hospitals by the Joint Commission. Heres some background: An independent, nonprofit organization, the Joint Commission (www. thejointcommission.org) accredits and certifies more than 19,000 health-care organizations and programs in the United States. Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized as a symbol of quality that reflects an organizations commitment to meeting certain performance standards. To achieve the recent recognition, hospitals had to meet two 95 percent performance thresholds on evidencebased clinical procedures that are known to improve o utcomes f or the following medical conditions: heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care and childrens asthma. The Joint Commissions list cited Physicians Regional Healthcare System as one of 405 top-performing hospitals in the country a distinction bestowed upon only 14 percent of the hospitals evaluated. All told, 51 Florida hospitals were listed as top performers with Physicians Regional Healthcare Systems representing Collier County as the sole recipient of this honor. Awards and accolades are profoundly appreciated as a reflection of our commitment to quality core measures. Even more so, however, I believe it is our village of quality healthcare professionals who I ultimately celebrate each and every day. I share this honor with Dianne King, our director of quality, who notes: I consider core quality measures as an integral part of our patient-centered care. These are not just random ideas presented by a regulatory agency, but expert-driven and constantly re-evaluated national standards of care directly centered on what is best for the patient. Most meaningful to me personally is not just the Joint Commissions celebration of our physicians but the welldeserved accolades extended to every member of the Physicians Regional Healthcare System team a group of compassionate professionals representing a variety of skill sets and educational backgrounds, who join together each day to care for our patients distinct needs. So, on behalf of Physicians Regional Healthcare System, I humbly accept the honor bestowed upon us by the Joint Commission as both a reflection of an exemplary history of teamwork and, more importantly, as a challenge for our future to not just meet, but to exceed, the expectations of our patients and the community at large. My earnest belief is that you can never be too effective, nor can you ever be satisfied where you currently stand on quality measures. Though there might not appear to be much room for improvement, we must always strive to be better and we will. Todd Lupton is the CEO of Physicians Regional Healthcare System. o e t a o c toddLUPTONwww.physiciansregional.com
A culture of caring permeates outpatient infusion centersYou might not have heard of Joyce Foley, but shes one of the great ones. Shes also a Momma Bear. She and 100 friends are responsible for the Joy Bear Program, now in its fourth year of bestowing decorated stuffed bears to chemotherapy patients in our Bill and Sue Dalton Inpatient Oncology Unit and our infusion center at the North Naples campus. Joyce tells me that a friend was first inspired to action when Joyce was undergoing seven-hour chemo treatments, three days a week, for ovarian cancer. She said that friend, Mary, felt that making a decorative bear in honor of Joyce and calling it Ms. Joy Bear would be a comforting distraction for chemo patients. Today, 1,250 bears later (there are now Mr. Joy Bears also), word about the Ms. Joy Bear program has spread and more people are signing up to help on a monthly basis. We have a community here at Heritage Bay Golf and Country Club with good people who want to give back, Joyce explains. Thank goodness for people like Joyce, her friends and neighbors and, of course, the 1,200 NCH volunteers who perform so wonderfully on behalf of our patients. I found out about Joyce and the Ms. Joy Bear program through Sheryl Voivedich, who manages 26 colleagues in our outpatient infusion centers (17 RNs, four certified nursing assistants and five administrative assistants), who staff the front lines, caring for up to 100 patients every day. In late January, we celebrated National IV (Intravenous) Nurses Day. In that context, I dropped by the beautifully redone downtown infusion center (made possible by our Magnolia Ball patrons) next to the Garden of Hope & Courage. According to team members: Anything that can be infused, we infuse heavyduty chemo, antibiotics, blood transfusions, osteoporosis treatment, from eight in the morning until we are done, weekdays, weekends and holidays. We never miss a day and we care for everyone, whether they can pay or not. That kind of can-do spirit typifies the nurses at NCH. On weekends and holidays, we administer infusions at the North Naples campus, which will be renovated this summer, thanks to the strong and generous support of the most recent Magnolia Ball chaired by Jackie Bearse. We are tremendously proud of our outpatient infusion centers team, with its low turnover and high level of devotion to patients. Many of these patients are treated several times per week, for hours at a time. Many are physically, mentally and spiritually at the nadir of their lives, battling a dreaded disease. We know that the way in which a patient is supported and comforted is an extraordinarily important aspect of treatment and recovery. Weve got the A-team at our outpatient infusion centers, and thats true throughout our hospital. The net result of all these efforts made by our nursing staff, volunteers, Joy Bear helpers and everyone else who tends to NCH patients is a culture of caring that permeates our hospital. Our community is noted for its generosity, and thats demonstrated every day at NCH. We are fortunate to be part of this wonderful place, where each of us cares for the other. We are, indeed, all in this together. And thats a good thing. Dr. Allen Weiss is the president and CEO of NCH Healthcare Systems. Dont Move IMPROVE! D o n t M o v e I M PR OV E!

Its easy: Exercise his mind. Veterinarians have long been sounding the alarm on what the lack of exercise is doing to the health of our pets, triggering an obesity crisis thats echoing our own. Regular exercise means pets with fewer health and behavior problems. But many of our dogs are also getting the short end of the stick when it comes to exercising their minds. And winter is a great time to teach your old dog a few new tricks. What many people dont realize is that training is a way of communicating with your dog, of sharing a common language. The more words you both know the meaning of, the more you are sharing your lives. How many words can your dog know? Youd be surprised. Consider that dogs who serve people with disabilities are routinely trained to perform dozens of different tasks. If you say your dog is not as smart as a service dog, well argue back that even if hes only half as smart, he can learn a couple of dozen more things than he knows now. Besides, tricks are great fun for all dogs. While canine whiz kids such as poodles and border collies will pick up things quickly, any dog will catch on eventually, if youre patient, consistent and encouraging. You can teach tricks one at a time or a couple at once, as long as you have time to practice each one several times a day. Some dogs are better at some tricks than others. A small, agile terrier may find jumping through hoops easier than a bulldog would. And a retriever is probably more willing to hold things in his mouth than is a Pekinese. A basset hound can probably roll over but may find begging a little hard, being a little top-heavy. So think about your dogs form and aptitudes before you start. You may notice something special your dog does that would be entertaining if you can get him to do it on command. You can. Give it a name, use that word when hes most likely to do his thing, and praise him for obeying. Hell make the connection soon enough. You can dress up tricks a little, too, to make them seem more than they are. Weve both judged at events with prizes for pet tricks always a fun way to spend an afternoon. At one such event, the winner was a friendly Rottweiler who liked to jump in the air after soap bubbles. The trick itself wasnt that big a deal, really, except for the fact that the owner turned it into a crowd-pleaser with a few props. She put a ballerina skirt around the dogs middle, with matching pink leg warmers on her back legs and a tiara on her head. She then put on Swan Lake in her portable stereo and starting blowing bubbles. The dogs leaps and turns were a million times funnier when choreographed, and the pair won easily. Check trick-training books and websites for ideas. If your dog shows a true aptitude and is the friendly, easygoing sort, you might find that joining a pet therapy group can be something youll both enjoy, an activity that gives your dog a job while brightening the lives of other people. A simple trick can be dressed up with the imaginative use of props.

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, November 1917 You take the blue pill The story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill You stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Morpheus in The Matrix My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati: that one wants nothing to be different, not forward, not backward, not in all eternity. Not merely bear what is necessary, still less conceal it all idealism is mendaciousness in the face of what is necessary but love it. Friedrich Nietzsche, Ecce Homo All our dreams then are dreams of meat, on its way to being eaten. Jake Horsley, Matrix Warrior: Being the One Calm as Hindu cows... Tyler Durden in Fight Club As our national animal, the tiger may be close to extinction. But the cow is very much around and may soon become our new national animal. Bibek Debroy, columnist for Indias Financial Express In his Myth of Sisyphus, Albert Camus pushes up his mountain the rocking philosophical question of greatest import to him: Does the realization of the meaninglessness and absurdity of life require suicide? Camus refers to the Greek myth in which Sisyphus defies the gods and puts Death in chains so no human would have to die again. When Death is freed, and Sisyphus own time of dying comes, he escapes the underworld. The gods, incensed again, decide on his punishment: He will have to push a rock up a mountain only to watch it roll back again, necessitating another upward exertion, eternal return. Oddly enough, it seems that Sisyphus got off, got out, got his way: After all, his punishment requires that he does not die. Camus getting off, his happy ending, is imagining Sisyphus happy, smiling. Well, the frog in the well was happy, too. He told the Eastern Ocean turtle all about it, about how he could hop along the coping of the well, rest by the crevice in the bricks, wallow with head above water, or stroll in the mud. Lord of the Well, he fancied himself. The turtle in response described his home, the constant ocean, its depth and breadth and ease in the face of floods or droughts that could not touch the ocean essence and nature. Frog in the well is an short hand version of the catch phrase two steps forward, one step back. This phrase refers to the arduous task facing the frog trying to escape his well, to become a frog in the field, after talking with the ocean turtle. Vladimir Ilyich Lenin cynically altered the phrase in the revolutionary pamphlet he wrote in 1904: One Step Forward; Two Steps Back. He wrote it to explain the position he took in the 1903 Second Congress of the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party. Lenin was trying to examine the party split over membership rules. He proposed a limited party membership, a smaller core of active members, professional revolutionaries. This position was referred to as the hard, maximalist view. Julius Martov proposed the contrasting soft, minimalist position which allowed for members that were merely card carrying rather than fully committed. Which pill, red or blue, did Lenin take? Or Martov? Or the frog? Or the turtle? And is the well polluted by the excretions of its pill imbibing inhabitants? What about the ocean? These are Exupery-esque inquiries of consequence. Perhaps pirates and poets in their confusion swallow both, their language simply a wild minx that speaks her oneirotic whimsy beyond stepping up or down or forward or back, beyond pushing and polling. After all, MIT cognitive scientists in the last issue of the journal Cognition write that ambiguous words with multiple meanings (like mean) are more efficient than using newly crafted unambiguous words. The ambiguous allows inference out of context, at the users pleasure. It seems that ambiguous words with fewer syllables, higher frequency, and simpler pronunciation are preferred. Now I know why cows are sacred in India. And why they often wander the streets sacrosanct, eating garbage and causing traffic jams. Where are you, Shiva? Gone om again?

Tailorfit BY NANCI THEORET Florida Weekly CorrespondentFor more than 30 years, governors, senators and Lee Countys top physicians, attorneys and other professionals have trusted Fort Myers tailor Remy Fenelus to create fine suits and dress shirts that fit their bodies and sense of style. So it really irks him when he learns that Chinese tailors are visiting local offices or conducting private fittings in an area hotel room, duplicating his services. They take the business back to China, says Mr. Fenelus, the proprietor of Remys Tailor. It gets me really upset. I went to school in France, trained in Italy. Ive done suits for businessmen and all the doctors in town. Im here; I should be able to get the job. Im the only local tailor who does this. Custom tailoring and ball-gown design is almost a lost art. Sure, there are plenty of local businesses that provide alterations for those who buy off the rack (Remys does, too), but theres nothing like having a suit designed to your exact specifications and body or wowing other gala goers with a one-of-a-kind gown no other woman in the ballroom let alone the world could be wearing. New-to-Naples custom clothier Joseph Wendt doesnt just transform cloth to shirt, slacks or suits. He creates entire wardrobes, making house calls to help his national and international clients organize their closets, coordinate outfits and even shop for needed accessories.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2012 We are a direct lender offering the following loan products: Making dreams come true... SW Floridas Fastest Growing Mortgage Bank! Stock investors use various stock option strategies to either protect their individual stock positions from loss or add incremental return. Before going down the road of adding another investing strategy to your quiver, you might want to make sure that several foundational elements of investing are in good order: a profit strategy which you will exploit, good portfolio management and good investor behavior. People are quick to add strategies as it suggests more profits, yet they might leave core problems unaddressed. For example, value investing is a strategy for exploiting profit in under-followed and/or very complex companies. But alone, that strategy is insufficient to make money. Also needed is a rule set for cutting losses and letting profits run (e.g. stock selection, risk and cash management techniques). Lastly, you need disciplined investor behavior to execute your plans, not letting emotions, behavioral biases or poor work habits interfere. Now, if you add options to your portfolio, you are, by definition, making your strategy more complex. Specifically, adding another strategy probably should not be done until you have all your other investing ingredients in order and you have taken steps to simplify the portfolio to a manageable size. I have never understood the merits of holding 500 stocks, let alone 50. If you want to hold the market, just buy a no load index; if you want to build wealth, outperform the market and use option strategies, then consider a much more manageable number of positions. As this column has previously addressed the mechanics of calls/puts, covered calls, etc., the focus now switches to the merits of specific options strategies. Buying calls can work particularly well in markets that are in a bull run or bear market rally or if a specific stock is expected to have an upward earnings explosion. If the price surge does not happen, your option expires worthless and your loss is what you paid for the option. Now comes covered calls: a call option is sold by an investor against an existing stock position. Not that you want the stock called away but you think the strike price will not be reached within the specified time period. If the option goes unexercised, you will be able to keep the stock and the amount paid to you. Sweet However, there might be a real opportunity cost if the stock explodes above the calls strike price; sure, you capture the options price but you have foregone the upside above the strike price. To avoid a stock sale and capital gains recognition, you can trade out of the call at a loss. Now there are also naked calls. And while it sounds terribly complicated, it really isnt. A naked call is a call sold by an investor not owning the stock. If the investor thinks the stock price will never reach the strike price, then the investor selling the call is expecting to collect the call premium and never be forced to deliver the stock. Because a majority of call buyers are wishfully thinking that higher prices are in the near future, the writers of naked calls seek to exploit that optimism. However, in a bull run when most stocks rise together, naked calls could produce disastrous results. Now there are similar possibilities with puts, options for the downside. An owner of the stock can buy a put to protect the stock from losses in case the stock falls. It adds expense to the overall cost of the stock position. It could make sense if, after a big market or stock decline, the investor doesnt know if the bottom is in and yet wants to enter the stock. Coincidentally with stock purchase, a protective put is bought. Less expensive, but with more risk, is to leg in by buying the stock first, then getting an upward bounce and, on that bounce, buying the put protection which should be cheaper if volatility is down and the price has lifted. Buying an outright put but not owning the stock is speculation that the stock price will fall; loss is limited to the price paid for the put. Lastly, the naked put is a put written by an investor who expects the stock not to drop and therefore collect the put premium. This strategy is the most often non -exercised option and, therefore, the option strategy most consistently profitable but the problem is that, if the frequently seen Black Swan reappears, naked puts could slaughter a portfolio. A 1 percent pickup in return done 10 times a year is a nice 10 percent. So what does all this mean? Practice the strategy first, create a worst-case scenario for option positions and, if you can live with it and the risk/reward makes sense, then proceed. Writing naked calls or puts is only for an experienced investor in that you have the possibility of being required to deliver (under a naked call) or take stock (under a naked put) at prices far distant from the strike price generating large losses. When and if markets are in a tailspin, a naked put might put you in a tailspin too losses and illiquidity often change behavior from rational to biased and emotional. Whatever you do, dont get derailed from your core competencies and consult your investment adviser for suitability and verify before proceeding.

BEFORE AFTER Love Your Kitchen Again! www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2012 THE MOTLEY FOOL Choosing a BrokerageIf youre ready to invest in stocks, a brokerage account will come in handy. Opening one is not much more complicated than opening a bank account, but you should do some research first, to choose the brokerage that best serves your needs. Consider the following as you compare contenders: Costs. Find out how much each will charge you in commissions per trade. It can vary from $7 or less to more than $100. See what other fees are charged, too, such as IRA custodian fees, wire transfer fees, account inactivity fees, annual fees, etc. Minimum initial deposit. Some brokerages require at least several thousand dollars, while others have no minimum. Usability and service. Check to see how easy its online trading system is to use. Ask some questions of the customer service department to see how responsive it is. Banking services. Some brokerages now offer check-writing, money market accounts, credit cards, ATM cards, direct deposit and more. Look for these if you 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. Too Many Shares?QGeneral Electric hasnt split its shares since 2000. Is that because it has too many shares outstanding already? C.G., Augusta, Ga.AIt doesnt typically work that way. Splits often take place when a stocks price is deemed too high. Splits can be largely a psychology-driven event, making a stock look cheaper to some investors. If stocks never split, then a single share of some big companies would cost as much as a car or house. General Electric does have a lot of shares more than 10 billion. The number of shares isnt a measure of a companys size, though. Sirius XM Radio has close to 4 billion shares, for example, while Boeing has fewer than a billion. What matters much more than stock splits or numbers of shares is how strong a firm is, how quickly its growing, how successfully its competing and how each shares value is increasing.General Electric recently posted operating earnings per share for 2011 up 22 percent over year-ago levels. The companys backlog of infrastructure-related orders, at $200 billion, set a record. ***QHow do you rebalance a portfolio? M.D., Newark, N.J.AImagine that three years ago you invested half your nest egg in stocks and half in bonds. If you want to keep that balance, but your stocks have grown to become 60 percent of your portfolio, you might sell some stock and add to your bond holdings.Rebalancing means adjusting the percentage of your portfolio represented by various holdings (such as stocks, bonds, etc.) by reallocating your money. Dont overdo it, though. If your portfolio changes from 50 percent stocks to 51 percent, thats not cause for alarm. Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us.

Fast-Forward FiascoMy dumbest investing move was thinking that SonicBlue, the second stock I ever bought, had better technology in its ReplayTV DVR than TiVos machines. Imagine it permitted users to easily fast-forward through commercials!Alas, that was partly the companys downfall, as commercials are a critical component in the broadcasting business, and broadcasters didnt like that feature. The company was sued by a group of 28 big media companies, and after spending a lot of money on legal wrangling, filed for bankruptcy protection. Its ReplayTV assets eventually ended up in the hands of DirecTV. Unfortunately, having the technology survive through bankruptcies doesnt help the original shareholders. G.H., onlineThe Fool Responds: Youre right once a company declares bankruptcy, original common stockholders are usually out of luck. (Theyre typically last in line, after creditors, any preferred stock holders, etc.) Having the best technology is good, but you also need enough money to get it to market and to be able to fight off competitors and naysayers. Smart strategies and competitive advantages help a lot. The Motley Fool TakeProcter & Gamble, 2012How will Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) fare in 2012? Well, if the economy is weak, consumers may not stop shaving or brushing their teeth, but they may forgo higher-end items such as tooth-whitening products and may even pass up name brands such as Crest and Tide in favor of private-label products. In the meantime, P&G and its peers have been juicing their growth rates by expanding their reach into emerging markets. The slice of P&Gs sales that came from outside the U.S. expanded from 62 percent in fiscal 2010 to 63 percent in fiscal 2011. If a 1 percent change doesnt sound like much to you, consider that when were talking about nearly Name That CompanyI trace my roots back to 1869 and a glass jar of grated horseradish.

QUALITT RVICE NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2012 BUSINESS B7 it. For more than 20 years, Mr. Wendts New York City-based business, with stores in Midtown Manhattan and Long Island, has earned a loyal following among business leaders, executives and some heavy hitters professional athletes like major NFL players whose sheer size can create additional measurement challenges. All of them realize the benefits of having their clothes custom made. If youre a successful guy, having your own tailor is the only way to go, Mr. Wendt says. Mr. Wendt works with the top mills in the world and often offers limited-edition fabrics that will ultimately produce a twopiece suit priced as high as $15,000. Most, however, range from $2,500 to $5,000, a fraction of what a traditional Old World tailor or New York tailor would charge.Posture and personalityThe biggest advantage of buying custom is clothing that fits to a T. Every person has a different body type, Mr. Fenelus says. The human body is not one size fits all. Someone might have a shorter torso, legs or arms. Ive never found two people exactly the same. For Mr. Wendt, posture and personality also play a major role in dictating design and the ultimate style of the finished product. A classic English suit might work better for a clients physique or career than, say, an Italian design. Some people dont look good in certain styles, he says. Not everyone can wear the current or trendy model. What we give them fits beautifully and looks like its theirs. Someone in the music business can be more flamboyant than a conservative banker, he adds. We also educate our customers about everything we make for them and the purpose behind it. A jacket might not be appropriate for business but its perfect for taking their wife out to dinner or to a fun party. Remys offers an array of fine Italian fabrics in styles designed by Mr. Fenelus, who studied clothing design at the University of Paris before shifting his career to law at his parents insistence. During his pre-attorney training he even created suits for Armani, which he says he later saw with a hefty markup in a New York City store. Mr. Feneluss suits range from what he calls average to the upper scale and are priced from $750 to $10,000, depending largely on fabric. His offering also takes into account Southwest Floridas temperatures, with lightweight silk and cashmere blends and premium Super 180 fabrics. Suits are made the old-fashioned way, on the premises of his workroom on the Tamiami Trail. Im probably the only one who cuts without a computer, says Mr. Fenelus. Everything is done by hand. Nothing is mass produced. Depending on fabric selected and its workload, Remys Tailor can deliver a custom suit in as little as two days, although 30 is the norm. Mr. Wendt says his turnaround is usually six to eight weeks; an Old World tailors about three to six months. Mr. Fenelus also designs and makes wedding gowns, typically using fabric provided by the customer.One-of-a-kind gownsThe search for a unique wedding gown brought the manager of a Tampa-area Saks Fifth Avenue store to Punta Gorda and a Perfect Fit Boutique and Gallery, owned by artist Helen Gerro. The client had seen Ms. Gerros popular mermaid gowns during a fashion show and commissioned a couture hand-painted gown for her upcoming nuptials. Its for a beach wedding in Tampa, and she thought this gown would make it really special, says Ms. Gerro, who has been designing clothing for more than two decades and honed her talents in New York Citys garment district. Shes having divas painted on it. Ms. Gerros couture collection includes cocktail and party dresses, resort wear and hand-painted jeans. Each of her dresses is custom fitted, hand painted in oils or acrylics and signed. Her signature dress is the mermaid, whose fitted bodice flares at the bottom. Motifs include birds, florals and the aforementioned divas, a post-modern look. My gowns are one of kind, she says. No one else has it but you Its like wearing a painting. You wear a piece of art. Ms. Gerro cuts the fabric, typically a Dupioni silk or linen, and then paints it before assembling the dress. She does a second fitting before making the final hems and installing the zipper. Prices range from $89 to $150 for handpainted jeans (customers supply their favorite pair), $50 to $250 for pencil skirts and $750 to $1,500 for mermaid dresses. Cocktail dresses start at $250. I was a designer in sketches, and my sketches turned into paintings, and my paintings jumped off the canvas to my dresses, says Ms. Gerro, in explaining her artistic evolution. Her clientele is a varied demographic women ages 25 to 65 and older who often see her work at local trunk shows. Her boutique hours are strictly by appointment.Finding a nicheCustom clothing, much like many industries, has been affected by the economy. Mr. Fenelus says his business was off 50 percent during the height of the recession. He was able to make up some of the difference by providing uniforms for the Lee County Sheriffs Office. Business, he says, is on the rebound an uptick recently noted by the national fashion industry. Mr. Wendts arrival in Naples a location he selected over Palm Beach could also signify the return of the custom clothier and tailor. His shop here also offers Italian Tino Cosma ties, pocket squares, Fratelli-Rosetti Italian shoes and ready-towear sportswear conducive to the Naples lifestyle. Im very excited to be in Naples, he says. We have a great niche. Our goal isnt volume. We want clients for life. We take care of them and make them look great. And we dont duplicate anything. If we use a patterned fabric for a sports coat, we make sure no one else will have that. TAILORFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOA model wears one of Helen Gerros signature mermaid gowns.

Opera Naples presents the show in French, with projected English translations, Friday and Sunday, Feb. 24 and 26, at Gulf Coast High School. This theme, the struggle between good and evil, is rather timeless, says Tom Smith, Opera Naples managing director. It is incorporated into the choices most people make every day, how we live our lives, but on a smaller scale. So, it resonates with everyone. Tenor Anthony Kearns returns to Opera Naples, where he has performed several times, to make his debut as Faust. Its also his first performance with a full-scale opera company. Last year, Mr. Kearns joined Opera Naples for Lucia de Lammermoor at Miromar Design Center, but the production of Faust will have an orchestra and costumes in a premium theater setting, Mr. Smith explains. We are excited to have him here, Mr. Smith says about the famed Irish tenor, who he describes as a true lyric tenor who has an incredible warmth to his singing that people respond to. Mr. Smith is excited to have Maestro Paul Nadler as conductor for the challenging work.BY ROBIN DEMATTIAFlorida Weekly Correspondent SEE FAUST, C4 KEARNS Faust Opera Naples presents starring tenor Anthony KearnsWHEN JUSTIN COWAN SAW DAS BARbec, he knew instantly that he wanted to bring it to the Herb Strauss Theater on Sanibel.

There is nothing worse than eating dinner alone. Well, maybe one thing: eating dinner alone in a restaurant. You dont have anyone to talk to, anyone to share your fries with, anyone who might get your back if theres a fight. On a Tuesday night I stopped at a local cafeteria. I was in between work and an evening event and I needed a bite of dinner to make it through the night. I ordered a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich the saddest dinner I can imagine and took a seat at a back table. A few minutes later, a couple took the table in front of me. The woman was petite, shorter than me, but the man was the biggest man Ive seen in a long time. He had broad shoulders, wide hips and a big gut that spilled over his waist so that he could barely squeeze between the table and chair. As he sat, he popped the lid off a bottle of tea. This is good sweet tea. It sure is, the woman said. You dont find good sweet tea in a place like this. The couple talked as I worked through my sandwich and watched an ambulance pull into the hospital across the street. Im at this party last Saturday night, the woman was saying. You know the one? Mmm-hmm, the man managed around a mouthful of burger. Well, Sandra says to me, Say hello to your man for me. You believe that? He took another bite. Disrespecting me, the woman said. Thats what she was doing. You dont ask about another womans man. Mmm-hmm. So you know what I did? The man took a sip of his sweet tea. Whatd you do? I popped her. One, two, three, four. The woman punched the air as she counted, and in my seat I winced. Thats right, she said. Nobody better mess with my man. I swallowed hard and looked at my tray as the man lumbered out of his seat. Im going to the bathroom, he said. When he came back, the woman had cleared their trays. Wheres my sweet tea? he said. I threw it away, the woman said. Sorry, baby. Let me get you another one. The woman headed for the cash register and I folded my sandwich wrapper. Can you believe that? the man said. To me? I glanced in his direction. He stared back. To me. Threw away my sweet tea, he said. What was she thinking? I looked at the folded wrapper, a stack of napkins, the salt spilled on the table. Waste of money, the man said in my direction. The woman came back across the cafeteria, and I turned toward the hospital. She set the tea on the table in front of the man and gave me a probing look. I felt her fist flexing. I stared out the window as if Id never seen anything so fascinating, as if Id never dare look across the tables, as if Id never think about talking to her man.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 A&E WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2012 The orchestra and musical requirements are complex, and its great to have an experienced person on the podium to lead that process. He has worked with the full gamut of artists, from emerging young talent to Pavarotti and Placido Domingo, so he is well attuned to performers needs. Mr. Nadler has led The Metropolitan Opera more than 60 times and worked with dozens of other companies throughout the world since his debut in 1989. Locally, he is known for his affiliation with the Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestra, where he is director emeritus. Georgian-American soprano Lina Tetriani portrays Marguerite. She made her professional operatic debut as Antonia in Les Contes dHoffmann with the Staatstheat er Stuttg art and may be known to local audiences for her performances with Sarasota Opera.Local talents make their mark on operaThe Opera Naples Orchestra is a 45-piece ensemble of primarily freelance local musicians. Its nice that Southwest Florida has a pool of talent to give us what we need and to do it at a high level, says Mr. Smith, who joined Opera Naples in July 2011 after working for the Des Moines Metro Opera, Cincinnati Opera Association and Baltimore Opera Company. Opera Naples patrons will notice a dramatic image by Orlando artist Larry Moore that adorns the Faust publicity materials. Mr. Smith explains that Opera Naples wanted a signature look for its season and is building permanent visual arts pieces to help build the companys brand; he chose Mr. Moore to create the Faust image based on the artists work for the Orlando Opera in promotion of their seasons. Mr. Moore primarily paints en plein air, with a focus on nature. He teaches painting, participates in exhibitions and has won numerous awards, including the 2008 Collectors Choice Award at the Laguna Plein Air Invitational, the Carmel Art Festival Best of Show 2010 and 2006, the 2009 Artists Choice Award at the Maui Islanders Plein Air, and the 2005 Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators. Now in its seventh year, Opera Naples is presenting five productions this season, with the goal of making opera accessible to everyone. The companys 2011-12 season opened in November with Showboat, a collaboration with TheatreZone, and continued with Hansel & Gretel in December and Don Giovanni in January. A special Opera Naples fundraiser will bring celebrated Metropolitan Opera soprano Patricia Racette to Moorings Presbyterian Church in Naples for an evening concert and reception on Friday, March 16. Finally this season, the company is participating in the inaugural ArtsNaples World Festival with a concert presentation of Eugene Onegin at The Philharmonic Center for the Arts on May 17. The Naples Philharmonic Orchestra will collaborate with a cast and chorus assembled by Opera Naples.

The story is so convoluted that Mr. Cowan, who is the artistic director at the Herb Strauss Theater, doesnt even want to attempt to summarize it. But you dont need to know The Ring to appreciate Das Barbec. Its an adaptation, not a parody, he says. Just like you dont need to know Romeo and Juliet to enjoy West Side Story, you dont need to know The Ring to enjoy Das Barbec. But if you do know The Ring cycle, its a fairly truthful retelling of it, says Amiee Turner, whos directing the show at the Sanibel theater Feb. 17-March 17. Its a fable about love conquering greed. Its about a ring that carries ultimate power and the fight over the ring. And if that sounds like J.R.R. Tolkiens trilogy, The Lord of the Rings, its because Tolkien was a huge fan of the Ring cycle, Ms. Turner says. Like The Ring, Das Barbec contains giants and dwarves and river maidens, magic, true love and valkyries (spirits of the other world that come and retrieve the dead). And all this takes place around a barbecue pit and a good ol barbecue buffet, Ms. Turner says.A cult following Das Barbec was originally commissioned and premiered by the Seattle Opera Company in 1991, when the company was performing Wagners Ring cycle. It developed its own cult following and moved across the country to offBroadway. Ms. Turner, who serves as artistic director of Theatre-By-the-Sea in Rhode Island, says the first thing that drew her to the musical was that she knew nothing about it, so there was a a blank canvas in my mind as I read the script and listened to the music. It was challenging to think: How do you start from scratch with a piece like this? But the flip side of that is, you have no boundaries or expectations, so you can do whatever you want.Theaters focus changesThe musicals epic tale is set in a state where everything is larger than life. The script is legitimately funny, Mr. Cowan says. And in true Texas style, its a little bit crude. Producing this irreverent musical is part of his plan to revitalize the Herb Straus Theater with productions that appeal to serious theater patrons as well as to vacationers and snowbirds. The musical director there since 2008, last season he became the acting artistic director and this year was named artistic director. Under previous leadership, the theater presented revues and light shows. The focus has changed, Mr. Cowan says. We want to be a destination, not an afterthought. (We want to be) considered a part of the Southwest Florida theater community, alongside Florida Repertory Theatre and the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre and Gulfshore Playhouse. Last season, the venue offered The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. This season, theyve just closed Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, many performances of which were sold out. And plans for next season are even more adventurous. Theyve obtained rights for the Tony Award-winning Spamalot, slated for January, and the Tony Award-winning Urinetown, scheduled for February.Redefining the spaceThe intimate, 160-seat theater has three-quarter seating around a thrust stage. One of the interesting things thats happened in the past year is that theyre really taking advantage of exploring the full use of the space, says Ms. Turner. And thats exciting, to come in and know that you have that freedom of transforming the space as a director. Its different than working in a proscenium theater where your options are limited, Mr. Cowan says. Here you can really create a world that best suits the play and engulfs the audience. What weve discovered is that, in this space, the story really comes to the forefront. As an audience member, you get to be immersed in the story first and foremost. The venue has gone through many changes over the years. Before it became the Herb Strauss Theater in partnership with BIG ARTS, it was the Schoolhouse Theater, and before that, the Pirate Playhouse. Robert Cacioppo, producing artistic director of the Florida Repertory Theatre in downtown Fort Myers, was the artistic director at the Pirate Playhouse. Id love to revitalize this place to be what it was like when Bob was here, Mr. Cowan says. Its interesting that Bob started here. I have the most massive respect for him and what he has accomplished at the Rep. I think its pretty remarkable what hes been able to do in 14 years. I want us to be the musical theater option for the type of audience that goes to the Rep, the people who crave quality theater. I want us to be the place that offers the same quality, but with different programming. We have a ways to go, but the strides that have been taken in only one year are incredible. Hes most appreciative of support and encouragement from local theaters including Florida Rep and Broadway Palm. They went out of their way to help me, Mr. Cowan says. They see this space as worth having high-quality theater. It would be a shame for this space to shut down and have nothing in it. Its very special. Its a magical space. He adds the amount of change that has already happened is certainly magical. One of Mr. Cowans main goals is to draw audiences from the mainland. Those people, he adds, are not going to come if youre doing a revue. Theyre just not. We are finally offering them something worth crossing the bridge to see. BARBECFrom page 1 Andrew M.

Depending upon whos doing the accusing, it can lead to hurt feelings, ruptured friendships, damaged reputations. If youre falsely accused by a traffic cop looking to make his quota, you could wind up with hefty fines and points on your license. If youre falsely accused by a boss, you could lose not only your job but eventually your savings and your home. Those falsely accused and convicted of a crime in our imperfect judicial system can lose not only their freedom, but their life. The Exonerated, playing at Theatre Conspiracy through Feb. 25, tells the real-life stories of six innocent people who wound up on Death Row for crimes they didnt commit. They spent anywhere from two to 22 years imprisoned. As the title reveals, they were eventually exonerated. But their stories are harrowing. Some of them were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Some received poor legal representation. In other cases, there was shoddy evidence, misplaced evidence or outright hiding of evidence. One confession was coerced. If these people were guilty of anything, it was of being poor. Or black. Or mistakenly thought to be homosexual. Or having the misfortune to be in Texas, Mississippi or Florida. Written by Erik Jensen and Jessica Blank, this 2002 play is culled from interviews, letters, court transcripts, case files and the public record. Winner of the 2003 Lucille Lortel Award, the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Play and a Drama Desk Award, The Exonerated played more than 600 performances Off-Broadway. It also toured the country for 27 weeks, including a stop at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts in Naples. Celebrities revolved through various roles, and it wasnt unknown for one or more of the exonerated themselves to attend and speak after a performance. The production currently playing at Theatre Conspiracy is uneven, but worth seeing. The nine local performers vary in ability, but the story comes through, regardless. The play is set up more like a dramatic reading than a full play with sets and costumes. The nine actors sit on chairs with their scripts on music stands in front of them, standing when its their turn to tell their story. Most choose to read their lines, but some have obviously memorized them, which helps them give a more powerful performance. (I couldnt help wishing Theatre Conspiracy were in its previous space, which would have been a perfect setting for this play. When performed offBroadway, the actors sat on a slightly raised platform in an intimate space, with very little distance between them and the audience. The high stage at the Foulds Theatre continually reminds us that were watching a performance and creates distance.) Denise Scott is moving as Sunny Jacobs, a self-described hippie, vegetarian and mother of two. The woman not only loses her husband but 16 years of her life as shes falsely imprisoned on Death Row. Its Ms. Scotts striking performance that touched me the most; her Sunny is the heart of the show. As she captures every emotion confusion, dismay, love, sa dness, resolve this is the strongest Ive seen Ms. Scott on stage. Some of the actors portray multiple roles, acting as law enforcement, lawyers, judges, spouses and other people. Tiffany J. Campbell is underutilized, but provides some of the shows more humorous spots. Jamie Hutteman also has minimal but significant roles as lawyers and spouses. Mike Breen and Jamie Carmichael are downright terrifying as officers of the law almost foaming at the mouth with anger as they knowingly accuse and set up the innocent. Curtis Jones, of Gulfshore Playhouse, stepped in at the last moment to read the role of Delbert Tibbs, a man with a definite spiritual and philosophical frame of mind whose narration opens and closes the play. Cory R. Campbell portrays a horse groomer accused of raping and killing a white woman, Ken Johnson portrays an organic farmer who discovers his parents bodies and is then accused of murdering them, and Michael Graves portrays a man accused of killing a woman in his apartment complex. On opening night, some performers experienced miscues and stumbles, though reading from scripts. Some, such as Ms. Scott, Ms. Campbell and Mr. Carmichael, embodied their roles, while others wouldve been more powerful if only theyd been more expressive. The timing and pacing also seemed off on occasion. Sometimes the actors rushed through the material. I hope director J. Mitchell Haley can finesse this play and coax more relaxed performances from the actors. He has staged their entrance well, with the actors seen as silhouettes entering from the wings and crossing over to their chairs. But with the exception of the opening music, all other extraneous sound seems tacked on, as its different in tone and quality from the actors talking. The Exonerated is well worth seeing. Its not a dry recitation of facts, and its not preachy. It is eye opening. And its dismaying to see how little justice there is, at times, in our justice system. The Exonerated is more terrifying than a horror movie. Im no different from you, one of the exonerated says. And if it happened to me, it can happen to anybody.

But lets be honest: Our favorite Denzel Washington is badass Denzel Washington. Like when hes a drug lord in American Gangster, or winning an Oscar for playing a corrupt detective in Training Day. The trailers for Safe House promise more badass Denzel, and that alone is reason to be excited. Unfortunately, director Daniel Espinosa never makes it clear whether Denzels character, Tobin Frost, is good or bad. Add to that some predictable twists, poorly shot action/ fight scenes and a half-hearted love story, and you have a movie thats a total mess. Frost is a former CIA agent who went rogue nine years ago and now possesses a microchip with information thats very important to CIA brass. For no discernible reason, the story is set in Cape Town, South Africa, which is where Frost inexplicably (really its never explained) turns himself in to the American consulate. Hes taken into custody and sent to a safe house kept by Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds), an ambitious young man with a hot girlfriend (Nora Arnezeder) whom we immediately know Weston will later risk his life to protect. When he finally does, we dont care. Weston wants a more active assignment post, citing the fact that nothing happens in Cape Town. Be careful what you wish for, Matt. Moments after Frost arrives, the house is attacked, and Frost and Weston find themselves stuck together with different priorities. Frost plays with Westons emotions, but with Washington unable to convey Frosts motives, its impossible to know if Frost is evil or trying to help Weston. Otherwise Washington and Reynolds are fine, and the supporting cast that includes Sam Shepard, Vera Farmiga and Brendan Gleeson adds a touch of class to the embarrassingly simplistic story. For example: At one point, Weston loses Frost and needs to find him. Suddenly, he recalls Frost earlier turning a car in the direction of a nearby village and Viola! Weston finds him. Are you kidding me? Third graders could come up with something more interesting (sorry, second graders). And then there are the lame action sequences. They occur at random and for no clear reason. Frost is tortured during his interrogation after he says hell cooperate. During an escape scene, Weston speeds through a crowded street fair. During fight scenes, its impossible to know who has the upper hand because the action is edited so fast that you cant tell whats going on. To top it off, the ending is abrupt and leaves you wondering who the true good guys and bad guys are. A little ambiguity is one thing, but to never reveal the motivations of main characters is a disastrously stupid decision that unhinges everything else Safe House does well. Which isnt much.

Its loosely based on the Jules Verne novel, and book lovers will smile at the liberties taken with classic literature. But the acting, dialog, story and visual effects are nothing to write home about. Rated PG.The Woman in Black (Daniel Radcliffe, Ciaran Hinds, Janet McTeer) A London lawyer (Radcliffe) out to prove himself takes a job in the English countryside searching for a dead womans will.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYARTS TWO C25ARTS & ENTERTAINMENTSociety Past Repasts Cuisine WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2012 An Appetite for Murder by Lucy Burdette. Obsidian. 320 pp. $7.99. Part-time Key West resident Roberta Isleib, well established as a mystery writer under her own name, has just adopted the pen name Lucy Burdette to launch a new series. An Appetite for Murder, which inaugurates the Key West Food Critic Mystery series, is a terrific start. Darling young Hayley Snow, the protagonist, is a couple of years out of college and venturing forth to make an independent life. Shes fallen in love with Key West as a place to try her wings. Hayley has a couple of good friends who already live there, and she recently fell for a man who asked her to come there and move in with him. On the romance score, the move turned out to be a bad decision, as this aggressive divorce lawyer dumped her within a few months. It seems as if the guy was on the rebound from a breakup when he met Hayley, but then returned to the other woman. In fact, Hayley walked in on the two of them. To complicate matters a bit (actually, more that a bit), that woman, Kristen Faulkner, comes from a wealthy and influential Key West family. She heads a new venture, a lifestyle magazine named Key Zest, and Hayley is seeking the announced position as its food critic. Can she get a job working for her rival? No matter. Before long, Ms. Faulkner is found poisoned to death and Hayley is the primary suspect. Was it the Key lime pie? Though the police would rather she didnt, Hayley cant help but put her own intelligence to work toward solving the mystery. Her suggestions are essentially ignored, and she remains a person of interest through much of the novel. Without an alibi and with opportunity and with a good enough motive (jealousy), shes a very convenient suspect. While the twists and turns of Hayleys investigation provide plenty of suspense, including a threat to her life, her desperate pursuit of the food critic position provides another suspenseful plot. It also provides plenty of insight into the restaurant business and food preparation. Hayley is a diehard foodie, and there are even a few recipes at the end of the book. Though An Appetite for Murder provides a promise of romance between Hayley and the head policeman on the case, the real love affair next to the one with food is with Key West. Ms. Burdette captures the sights, sounds, smells and tastes with caring verisimilitude. In addition, she captures the characters: the professionals, the strivers, the homeless, the rebels, the oddballs and the merrymakers. She transfers a real feel for the island to Hayley, the relative newcomer whos catching on fast to the charms of this special place. Hayley herself is delightful. Exuberant and nave, rocking back and forth between bravado and insecurity, excitable and given to motor-mouth nervousness, shes a quick study who has a lot to learn. Im sure that many readers will be happy to make her acquaintance and follow her through future adventures.About the authorAccording to www.lucyburdette.com, Lucys alter-ego, clinical psychologist Roberta Isleib, has published eight mysteries, including the golf lovers mystery series and the advice column mysteries. Her books and stories have been shortlisted for Agatha, Anthony and Macavity awards. Shes a member of Mystery Writers of America, Romance Writers of America and Sisters in Crime, and a past president of Sisters in Crime.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC30 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2012 Presidents Day, still officially named George Washingtons Birthday, is celebrated on the third Monday in February. But it has not always been celebrated on that day. George Washingtons birthday, Feb. 22, was first celebrated as a federal holiday in 1880. It was moved to the third Monday in February in 1971 as part of a law that made many holidays fall on Mondays so citizens could enjoy a long weekend. In 1951 there had been an attempt to change the holiday to Presidents Day to honor all presidents, not just George Washington, but for years there were arguments about when to schedule it, what to name it and whom to honor. In the mid-1980s, the use of the term Presidents Day instead of Washingtons Birthday spread across the country, spurred by stores advertising sales. While some states honor various presidents, usually those from the state, on the holiday, George Washington is part of all of the celebrations. When Washington died, the public bought Staffordshire figurines picturing him, textiles with pictures of him ascending to heaven and many memorial medals and plates. Photographs did not exist, so these souvenirs, along with oil paintings, show how he looked. Many of the souvenirs are inaccurate representations of Washington, but theyre of interest to collectors today. Q: I recently acquired an antique buffet made in a traditional style. A nameplate in a drawer says Joerns Bros. Furniture Co., Stevens Point, Wis. Please tell me something about the maker and what the piece might be worth. A: Brothers Charles, Paul and Frederick Joerns founded their furniture manufacturing company in St. Paul, Minn., in 1898. Within a few years, the company moved to Sheboygan, Wis., a center of furniture-making at the time. After a fire at the Sheboygan plant, Joerns Brothers Furniture Co. moved again in 1927, this time to Stevens Point. Joerns made highquality bedroom and dining-room sets until the late 1950s, when new management changed the companys focus to less-expensive furniture. When that business model failed, the company began making furniture for nursing homes and has thrived in the health-care business ever since. Your buffet was made after Joerns moved to Stevens Point in 1927, so it is not technically an antique because it is not 100 years old. And its traditional style probably indicates that it dates from no later than 1940. But it is a good solid piece of furniture. If its in excellent KOVELS: ANTIQUES By George!

Can you recognize George Washington? This Staffordshire bust made in England in the 19th century does not look much like the oil paintings made when Washington was alive. But he was still admired years after his death, and this type of figure sold well until the 1850s. Price: $240 at a 2011 Neal Auction in New Orleans. condition, you might get several hundred dollars for it. Q: I have two matching framed prints, one with a portrait of Abraham Lincoln and one with a portrait of George Washington. The first one has a small metal plaque that says Abraham Lincoln by George P.A. Healy The White House Collection from The President and Mrs. Nixon Christmas 1971. The George Washington print has a similar plaque and is dated Christmas 1969. Do you know anything about these? A: President Richard Nixon and his wife gave prints of famous presidential portraits to White House staff members as Christmas gifts each year he was in office. Each print was in a red presentation folder and included a parchment sheet with an explanation of the portrait, a ribbon and an embossed presidential seal. Hallmark made 3,500 copies of Gilbert Stuarts portrait of Washington for the 1969 gift. A print of Jeffersons portrait was given in 1970, Lincoln in 1971, Theodore Roosevelt in 1972 and James Monroe in 1973. Q: I have a Mary Marvel wristwatch that dates back to 1948. My parents had this watch for sale in their jewelry store in Berlin, Wis. It still keeps time. Id like to know what its worth. A: The character Mary Marvel first appeared in a Captain Marvel Adventures comic book published by Fawcett Publications in 1942. She was Captain Marvels sister and possessed the same powers as her brother. Mary Marvel had her own series of comic books from 1945 until 1948. She continued to appear in other Marvel comics published by Fawcett until 1954. Mary Marvel wristwatches came with different colored bands and in different boxes. We have seen them with red, green, blue and black bands. The earliest boxes had a Mary Marvel cover pasted over the original Captain Marvel cover. Value of your wristwatch is $200 to $300. Tip: Do not wash or rinse gold-decorated glass with very hot water or strong soap. It will remove some of the gold. Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

This deal comes from a team-of-four match. At the first table, South wound up in six clubs doubled after North had opened with a weak two-heart bid. West led the queen of spades, on which declarer played low from dummy. East followed with the deuce, in effect asking his partner to stop playing the suit. (Had East wanted another spade lead, he would have played a higher spade.) But West, ignoring his partners request that he shift to another suit, continued with a spade. For declarer, this was manna from heaven. He ruffed the spade, cashed the ace of clubs, led a heart to dummys king, returned the ten of clubs to his jack, drew Easts last trump and claimed the rest of the tricks. Wests failure to lead a diamond at trick two, the obvious shift, allowed declarer to score 1,090 points instead of losing 100. The deal demonstrates the importance of partnership cooperation on defense. Perhaps West was constitutionally unable to bring himself to lead away from the king of diamonds at trick two and decided instead to make the safe lead of another spade. But, as later events proved, the spade continuation was not really safe. Oddly enough, Wests mistake was only a small part of a double disaster for his team. At the other table, his teammates, sitting North-South, allowed their opponents to play six spades doubled, making with an overtrick, for a score of 1,860 points! Declarer ruffed Souths king-of-clubs lead in dummy, finessed the queen of spades and easily took the rest of the tricks. The successful team thus gained 2,950 points on this one deal!

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC42 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2012 Here are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews:Bokampers Sports Bar & Grill, 8990 Fontana Del Sol Way; 4317611: With 70-plus flat-screen televisions, you wont miss out on your favorite teams game at this trendy sports bar, the brainchild of former Miami Dolphin Kim Bokamper. What makes this a great choice for sports lovers is an inventive menu that includes shrimp, calamari, tuna wontons and fish tacos in addition to the usual burgers, wings, sliders and chili. Bos banging shrimp, in a sweet and spicy sauce topped with sesame seeds, were tasty and cooked just right. Bos signature chicken wings were excellent, grilled then topped with a medium hot barbecue and garlic sauce accompanied by a bounty of celery and blue cheese dressing. The fish tacos, made with mahi, were terrific. Apple pie a la mode was a perfect finish to a winning meal. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2010 Chops City Grill, 8200 Health Center Blvd., Bonita Springs; 992-4677: Stylish, hip Chops manages to offer something for everyone with a full bar and extensive wine list, aged meats and fresh seafood, classics like New England clam chowder and beef Oscar as well as inventive dishes such as handrolled shrimp and beef spring rolls and oysters Chopafeller (oysters with crab, andouille sausage, spinach and smoked gouda). 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. The staff does a great job of taking care of even the smallest details, making customers feel welcome and pampered. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2010Fernandez the Bull, 1201 Piper Blvd., Naples; 254-9855: This restaurant has thrived for years at its 1265 Airport Road location. Now, with its sleek second location, even more people can enjoy the authentic Cuban cuisine served up by the hospitable Fernandez family and staff. I can recommend the Cuban nachos, an inventive mix of thinly sliced fried plantains, savory chicken, cheese sauce, capers and parsley (plan to share this one); calamari in a well-seasoned tomato sauce with pepper and onions, a refreshing departure from fried calamari; ropa vieja, a classic dish of shredded flank steak in a tomato sauce with peppers and onions; and shrimp and scallops in white wine, garlic and capers. Yuca in creamy garlic sauce, black beans and yellow rice and sweet fried plantains were great sides. For dessert, you cant go wrong with the flan or the tres leches cake. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2010Grouper & Chips, 338 Ninth St. N., Naples; 643-4577: In an older strip plaza across U.S. 41 from NCH Hospital, Grouper & Chips is a self-described small, unpretentious hole-in-the-wall restaurant. It is indeed so small that you might find yourself rubbing elbows with other parties or waiting an hour for table (reservations are not accepted). Takeout and delivery are options, but then youd miss out on the warm hospitality of the staff. Besides, once you order, food is quickly delivered. The menu is heavy on fried foods, but the conch fritters and grouper did not suffer from greasy excess; the fried shrimp, however, were overwhelmed by batter. You wouldnt expect to find it in a place like this, but the bouillabaisse is loaded with lobster, sea scallops, mussels, shrimp and chunks of grouper and is worth trying. Dessert shooters petite servings of Key lime pie and chocolate mousse are the perfect way to end a meal here. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2011Pates House of Prime Rib, Coastland Center, 2048 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 263-1850: The Pate family has been serving high-quality steaks and seafood in Southwest Florida for three decades and recently opened Pates House of Prime Rib. (The old Pates farther south on U.S. 41 has changed to a more casual pub setting.) This location used to be Teds Montana Grill, and the basic bones of that concept are still there dark wood paneling, tile floors, pressed-tin ceiling. Its sort of an Old World-meets-New World vibe, but with a decidedly old-school approach to food and service: tableside preparation of tossed salads and flaming desserts, really big hunks of expensive beef served with creamed spinach and house-label steak sauce, and waiters decked out in red Eton jackets and black tuxedo pants. The signature prime rib available in five sizes was flavorfully aged, perfectly cooked and accompanied by very good Yorkshire pudding. A filet mignon was tender but not as hot as it should have been. Also on the downside: Sidedish offerings were limited, appetizers were expensive and service can lag.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C43 Not another Italian restaurant, I thought when I saw the news release heralding the opening of Il Cielo on Sanibel Island. Doesnt Southwest Florida already have more than enough ristorantes dishing up parmigianas, piccatas and pizzas? Si, assolutamente! Well, I am happy to report that you will find none of the above at Il Cielo, which has raised the bar for Italian cuisine in the area and stirred some excitement on the island dining scene. What you will find: dishes that showcase fresh ingredients and imaginative flavor pairings while acknowledging culinary roots in Italy and the broader Mediterranean region. Think grilled calamari tossed with ginger as well as garlic and red pepper flakes, sundried-tomato-crusted sea bass with broccoli sauce, or foie gras and chicken terrine with caramelized Granny Smith apples. Think of myriad, diverse sauces slowly simmered with meat or fish bones until flavors deepen into a state of gustatory nirvana. On first impression, the menus prices might raise some eyebrows. Antipasti start at $12.50, and entrees pass the $40 mark. (Is it the truffle sauce that makes the filet mignon worth $48?) That said, its quite possible to dine very well while avoiding the headier altitudes of the menu. We enjoyed two glasses of wine, two appetizers, two entrees and two desserts for about $110, before gratuity. (Of course, the causeway toll adds $6). Il Cielo, which means the sky in Italian, is the brainchild of world-class chefs Loretta Paganini and Marco Corricelli. Shes the Bologna-born, Cordon Bleutrained host of Simply Gourmet on the Discovery Channel as well as the proprietor of a culinary institute in Ohio and the author of the cookbook Bologna Mia. Chef Corricelli started his career in Milan and made his early reputation in renowned kitchens in Amsterdam, London and Paris. Some credit for Il Cielos success also is due to general manager Chris Carrasco, for the staff is well trained thoroughly professional and knowledgeable of the menu, yet warm and engaging. Each staff member we encountered demonstrated a commitment to ensuring an enjoyable, memorable dining experience. The atmosphere they create is neither casual nor stuffy. When you call to make reservations, youll be told that the dress code calls for no shorts and for collared shirts. Clearly, theyre sending a message to visitors who might be tempted to shuffle in from the beach expecting fried calamari and spaghetti with meatballs. The dining rooms dark woods, ornately framed artworks and balloon shades connote a certain clubby elegance. Soft piano music played unobtrusively in the background on the night we visited; live entertainment is offered on certain evenings. The wine list offers a strong Italian representation and an accommodating range of prices; by-the-glass selections are available in 3and 5-ounce pours. You can enjoy a fruity Tuscan white for an economical $7 or a berry-and-spice-infused Nebbiolo from the Piedmont region for $10.75 (both 5 ounces). We sipped while nibbling on crusty bread and freshly baked crackers served with tapenade. The menu includes a selection of light fare as well as salads and hot and cold antipasti for starters. If your appetite is light, you could easily fill up with a couple of generously portioned antipasti. Id highly recommend the oxtail meatballs ($14.50), which are served in a lush gravy over little mounds of mashed potatoes. One could hardly imagine meatballs more tender than these spheres formed from freshly pulled, slowly braised meat. For a lighter beginning, you cant go wrong with the aforementioned calamari ($13.50), which come out tender and with a slight char from the grill; you may never want to go back to fried squid again. Served atop a bed of colorful julienned veggies and with splashes of squid ink on the white plate, this made quite an artistic presentation. After an appropriate interval, entrees arrived. A number of the pasta dishes sounded enticing, including tagliolini with lamb ragu and gnocchi with black truffles. I finally settled on agnolotti ($16.50), a Piedmontese ravioli here stuffed with tender escarole and salty minced prosciutto an inspired and flavorful combination. The delicate pillows of pasta were bathed in a rich tomato sauce that spoke of red wine and aromatic vegetables and herbs. Not wanting to let a drop go to waste, I swiped the dish clean with a hunk of bread. My companion did the same with the coconut-infused seafood veloute that accompanied her swordfish rolls stuffed with crabmeat ($27.50). The thinly sliced fish held up surprisingly well considering its delicacy. Lightly crumbed and browned, it made a perfect wrapper to seal in the moisture of the crabmeat. The four rolls, or involtini in Italian, were served atop beds of mashed potato spiked with Parmesan crisps. It should come as no surprise that dessert is not an afterthought at Il Cielo; theres a pastry chef on staff. The only disappointment of the evening was the chocolate mousse with chili peppers ($7), which was curiously lacking the promised hint of heat. Even so, the chocolate-enrobed mousse was superb in texture and flavor. A pistachio crme brule ($7) was infused with the buttery richness of the nut a tasty variation on the dessert. Clearly, Il Cielo is doing plenty to distinguish itself from other Italian restaurants. It has the goods to succeed in a location where others Dolce Vita and Ellingtons have come and gone.
