Dr. Bill and Nancy Lascheid, founders of the Neighborhood Health Clinic, were honored as Hodges Universitys 2012 Humanitarians of the Year at a sold-out luncheon ceremony attended by more than 400 people on Feb. 23 at the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club. The 16th annual award recognizes those who exemplify the spirit of benevolence and public service in the community. The Lascheids are the fifth couple to receive the distinction. They founded the Neighborhood Health Clinic in 1999, just a few months after they had retired, he as a dermatologist in private practice and she as his nurse. On the clinics first day, Mrs. Lasheid recalled at the luncheon, eight patients walked through its doors. Today, with clinic hours two evenings a week and Saturdays, the clinic charts thousands of patient visits every year. Utilizing a volunteer professional staff more than 700 doctors and nurses, dentists SEE HUMANITARIANS, A30 SEE GUNS, A8 THE FLORIDA NURSE AND SCHOOLTEACHer picked up the handgun and fired her first round. Inside the soundproof walls of Mobile Tactics gun range, Joyce Jolley was catapulted into a new world. There was such a sense of power truly an epiphany, she recalls. I had such a sense of being in control that it was almost euphoric. That feeling of freedom made me happy. The sense of empowerment that surprised Ms. Jolley as she fired her first shots didnt die at the gun range and it was right on target with what women around the country are saying about the effect on their lives of learning how to shoot a gun.

So clear the table. Shut the door. On second thought, open it and leave an unclutte red path to the bathroom in case anybody needs to go throw up. Now were going to talk about politics and religion. As much as I hate to admit it, Rick Santorum is right. There need be no separation of theology from the principles and practices of government for individuals in American politics or American life.You Radical Commie Pinko Lefties (RCPLs) now have my permission to retreat at full speed to the bathroom while I explain why. Last week, just before the primaries in Michigan and Arizona and with super Tuesday looming only days away, Mr. Santorum decided to go for broke in his campaign to promote his own social and religious values and win the White House. He said hed read the famous 1960 speech by fellow Catholic John F. Kennedy insisting on a separation of church from state, and that makes me throw up.You see why I want easy access to the bathroom?What kind of country do we live in that says only people of non-faith can come into the public square and make their case? Mr. Santorum, a lawyer, asked rhetorically. I dont believe in an America where the separaCOMMENTARY rogerWILLIAMS firstname.lastname@example.org tion of church and state is absolute.The comments came in his appearance on the ABC News show This Week. Theres an answer to Mr. Santorums question. We live in a country where a non-separation of church and state is perfectly plausible and historically typical for presidents, judging by the cases many if not all have made for God from the public square. For example, George Washington: While we are contending for our own liberty, we should be very cautious not to violate the rights of conscience in others, ever considering that God alone is the judge of the hearts of men, and to him only in this case they are answerable. Or Abe Lincoln: I pray that our heavenly father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the alter of freedom. Or Harry Truman: We believe that all men are created equal because they are created in the image of God. Or George W. Bush: I tell people all the time, youre equally American if youre a Christian, Jew or Muslim. Youre equally American if you believe in an Almighty or dont believe in an Almighty. Thats a sacred freedom. But now that weve established that fact that we live in the kind of country where presidents talk about God all the time, erasing the lines between theology and political leadership lets ask this question: When and where should a non-separation of church and state occur? Theres the rub, or the cause of Mr. Santorums nausea as the case may be.For true conservatives for constitutionalists who like things the way the Founding Fathers laid them out that answer is very simple and very clear. A non-separation of church and state should not take place in the halls of government. It should not occur in buildings or forums created by Americans of every religious stripe and all the possible tax rates, from yours and mine to Mr. Santorums (28.5 percent in 2010) and Mr. Romneys (13.9 percent). Instead, non-separation should exist in the mind and heart of each individual, if he or she chooses. And only there. The Founding Fathers were absolutely clear on this point. As Ive written before (The big boo-hoo, October 2010), James Madison, author of the First Amendment, wrote that religion is essentially distinct from civil government, and exempt from its cognizance; a connection between them is injurious to both; there are causes in the human breast which ensure the perpetuity of religion without the aid of law.He also said, The number, the industry and the morality of the priesthood, and the devotion of the people, have been manifestly increased by the total separation of the church from the state. Thats where the phrase came from, by the way. Mr. Madison didnt mean that officials should not be able to stand up and express their personal religious feelings from the public square. Instead, he meant that a government of elected officials and its hired or appointed representatives should stubbornly insist on showing no hint of favoritism, support, aid, promise, or for that matter persecution to any one religion or non-religion. Not in schools, not in capitol buildings, not in any institutions of government. Mr. Madisons First Amendment remains the sentry that guards religious freedom. To it, the Founders welded two clauses that give it some real endurance, like additional fuel tanks attached to the wings of long-range aircraft: the establishment clause, and the free-exercise clause. Theyre not complicated. One says government should do nothing to establish any religions, and the other says government should do nothing to prevent the free exercise of any religion.By insisting on those principles, Mr. Madison said, officials actually increase the vitality of religion, which he favored. But he pointed out something else: There remains in others a strong bias towards the old error, that without some sort of alliance between government or religion neither can be duly supported. Uh-oh. Thats James Madison, a founding father. Apparently he, like President Kennedy, would cause Mr. Santorum to throw up a 53-year-old frat boy from Penn State (Tau Epsilon Phi). A millionaire with an MBA and a law degree. Does that mean that Rick Santorum, living about 235 years after a Founding Father defined precisely why a separation of church from state is a good idea, is not really a conservative defender of constitutional values? Yes, it means exactly that. Hell, maybe the boys an RPCL. Vomit, and other peculiarities of Rick SantorumSANTORUM PHOTO BY CHRISTOPHER HALLORAN / SHUTTERSTOCK.COM

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2012 New Obama Campaign co-chair: The president is wrong The president is wrong. So says one of the newly appointed co-chairs of President Barack Obamas re-election campaign. Those four words headline the website of the organization Progressives United, founded by former U.S. Sen., and now Obama campaign adviser, Russ Feingold. He is referring to Obamas recent announcement that he will accept super PAC funds for his re-election campaign. Feingold writes: The President is wrong to embrace the corrupt corporate politics of Citizens United through the use of Super PACs organizations that raise unlimited amounts of money from corporations and the richest individuals, sometimes in total secrecy. Its not just bad policy; its also dumb strategy. And, he says, its dancing with the devil. In 1905, President Theodore Roosevelt said to Congress, All contributions by corporations to any political committee or for any political purpose should be forbidden by law. He signed a bill into law banning such contributions in 1907. In 2012, this hundred-year history of campaign-finance controls died, thanks to five U.S. Supreme Court justices who decided, in the 2010 Citizens United case, that corporations can use their money to express free speech, most notably in their efforts to influence federal elections. After 18 years representing Wisconsin in the U.S. Senate, Feingold lost his re-election to self-funded Republican multimillionaire and tea-party favorite Ron Johnson. Since then, Feingold has been teaching law, started Progressives United and, while supporting the effort to recall Wisconsins embattled Gov. Scott Walker, has steadfastly refused to run against him or for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Democratic Sen. Herb Kohl. Feingold was the sole member of the U.S. Senate to vote against the USA Patriot Act. He was a fierce critic of the Bush administrations warrantless wiretapping program. Although Obama, as a senator, originally threatened to filibuster any legislation that would grant retroactive immunity to the telecom corporations involved with the wiretapping, he reversed himself on the eve of the Democratic Convention in 2008 and voted for the bill. Feingold remained adamantly opposed. On the war in Afghanistan, Feingold told me: I was the first member of the Senate to call for a timeline to get us out of Afghanistan. Even before Obama was elected, when it was between (John) McCain and Obama, I said, Why are we talking about a surge? ... Sending our troops over there, spending billions and billions of dollars in Afghanistan makes no sense. And I think it was a mistake for the president to do the surge, and I think hes beginning to realize we need to get out of there. Feingold opposed Obamas Wall Street reform bill, saying it was too weak, and supported the state attorneys general, like New Yorks Eric Schneiderman and another of the new campaign co-chairs, Californias Kamala Harris, who, at first, opposed the proposed settlement with the five largest banks over allegations of mortgage-service fraud and robosigning. Feingolds reaction to the $25 billion settlement that the White House pushed through? We were among the few that refused to do a little dance after this announcement ... whenever it ends up being Wall Street, somehow theres always a clunker in there. As I interviewed Feingold, just hours after he was named one of the 35 Obama campaign co-chairs, I asked him if he was an odd choice for the position. Feingold responded: How about a cochair thats proud of him for bringing us health care for the first time in 70 years? How about a co-chair who thinks that he has actually done a good thing with the economy and helped with the stimulus package, and weve had 22 months of positive job growth? How about a cochair for a president that has the best reputation overseas of any president in memory, that has reversed the awful damage of the Bush administration, who in places like Cairo and in India and Indonesia has reached out to the rest of the world. Believe me, on balance, theres no question. And finally, how about a co-chair of a president who I believe will help us appoint justices who will overturn Citizens United? Until then, as the Obama campaign dances with the devil of super PACs, perhaps campaign co-chair Russ Feingold will help us follow the money. 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.About a month ago, people who thought religious institutions shouldnt be forced to pay for things they morally oppose were unremarkable, boring even. Now, they are waging a heinous War on Women. Through the twisted logic of statism run amok, opposition to a new Health and Human Services mandate forcing employers to buy insurance covering contraceptives becomes opposition to access to contraceptives altogether. White House spokesman Jay Carney calls a Senate bill to allow employers to forgo buying coverage for services they oppose as they have throughout the nations entire history up to this point dangerous and wrong. Three Democratic women senators, Jeanne Shaheen (New Hampshire), Barbara Boxer (California) and Patty Murray (Washington), wrote in The Wall Street Journal that critics of the mandate are trying to force their politics on womens personal health-care decisions. How are they proposing to do that exactly? The Catholic bishops are merely fighting to keep institutions affiliated with their church from getting coerced into participating in what they consider a moral wrong. They are the agents of a status quo that the day before yesterday wasnt considered objectionable, let alone an assault on womens health. Supporters of the mandate like the three senators cite the statistic from the Guttmacher Institute that 99 percent of women who have been sexually active in the U.S. have used birth control. This doesnt sound like a country facing a crisis of contraception. But prescription contraceptives are expensive, the senators argue, costing as much as $600 a year. (Or, looked at another way, less than $60 a month.) Never mind that a vast government apparatus exists to provide poor women access to contraceptives, from Medicaid and community health centers to Title X. There are roughly 4,500 Title X-funded clinics around the country. They are required to provide free birth control to the poor and subsidized birth control to people with incomes between 100 percent and 250 percent of poverty. They serve about 5 million people a year. Of all the causes of the explosion in illegitimate births, limited access to contraception cant be high on the list. At the same time that we have seen a profusion of contraceptives that are dazzling in their variety, impressive in their efficacy and democratic in their widespread accessibility, out-of-wedlock births have gone from 10 percent in 1970 to 42 percent today (largely among poor women with access to government-provided contraceptives). In its extension to religious institutions, the HHS mandate can only reach a very narrow slice of the population. Women who arent poor enough to get government assistance, yet arent well off enough to afford their own contraception, cant get any other help, and have no alternative but to work for an objecting religious institution. On behalf of this vanishingly small number of women, the Obama administration is willing to risk a political backlash and a rebuke in the courts. If the mandate were only about extending contraception coverage, exempting religious institutions would be obvious. But its more than that. It is about bringing institutions thought to be retrograde to heel, and discrediting their morality. It is kulturkampf disguised as public health.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2012 Bob Cahners has been a frequent guest on my radio show, representing causes ranging from the Holocaust Museum & Education Center to the Shelter for Abused Women & Children. Retired from the real estate development business and not involved in any commercial interests, he remains very active in charitable work and his athletic endeavors. The interviews Ive enjoyed most with Bob involved his activities in World competition in the weight throws. Bob is a member of the Dartmouth College Hall of Fame. He holds six World Masters Championships in hammer and weight Throws. He also has 18 National Masters Championships in hammer, weight throw, super weight throw (44 pounds) and the Ultra Weight Pentathlon (weight throws of 20, 44, 56, 98 and 200 pounds). The current World Masters Indoor Weight Throw Champion and the National Masters Champion in the Ultra Weight Pentathlon, he travels the world competing in these Masters events. Bob and his wife, Pam, moved from New England to Naples full time in 1995. A 1964 graduate of Dartmouth College, he earned an MBA from Harvard Business School in 1966. In Boston, he served as trustee on a number of college, university, museum and hospital Boards. Now Bob and Pam have become deeply involved in our Paradise Coast community. During his tenure as chair of the board of trustees of the Shelter for Abused Women & Children, he invested his time developing ways the Shelter can work with young men to break the cycle of domestic violence and abuse. He has also served as board president for the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida, which reaches out to more than 20,000 area school children each year to help them better appreciate and respect their differences. In addition, Bob has served on the boards for Gulfshore Playhouse and the Naples Botanical Garden, where he was involved in a joint project with Florida Gulf Coast University to build a research center where visitors (especially children) can observe scientists working on botanical projects. When Bob is not immersed in his charitable commitments, he enjoys boating, an occasional round of golf, riding his Harley and training for senior track and field competitions. I admire him because hes a world-class athlete. More importantly, however, he places his family first and he is a true go giver in the community. Bob Harden is the producer and host of The Bob Harden Show, airing from 7-8 a.m. weekdays at www.bobharden.com. The show is archived for listeners convenience.

Most people have all they can do coping with their own without also having to deal with mine. What makes you laugh? I love a clever impersonator with a great sense of humor, like Dana Carvey and many of the Saturday Night Live impersonators. Last book you read: War by Sebastian Junger. He spent months in Afghanistan (his) treatment of where soldiers nd their resources of courage and bravery caused me to reassess my conceptions of heroism. Something youll never understand: Why so many people worry about their appearances and super cial accomplishments when, in fact, most people dont care. Pet peeve: I have been around boats all my life. I was a Coast Guard instructor in navigation and small boat handling It bothers me that so many people feel the only things necessary to operating a fast, powerful boat are a big bank account and a credit card. Something people would be surprised to nd out about you: I love my cats. I cant even believe it myself. What are you most proud of? My two children. They are beautiful, self-suf cient, successful and extremely sensitive to the feelings of those around them. High-school job: My family was prominent in the supermarket business. My rst job, as a 15-year-old, was carrying peoples bags of groceries out to their cars. Favorite thing about the Paradise Coast: The protective attitude that exists among people who live here.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2012 In the International Journal of Psychophysiology, Srini Pillay, M.D., says, the focus just before shooting may allow the brains fear center to become less active. The rebound excitement directly after shooting may feel rewarding, motivating and empowering. An assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Pillay is the author of Life Unlocked: 7 Revolutionary Lessons to Overcome Fear. Ms. Jolleys empowerment trumped her fear. The more I shot, the more I grew, she said. I felt like a caterpillar coming out of its cocoon after years of hibernating, (being) afraid to be me. Her initial visit to Mobile Tactics had come about on a lark while Ms. Jolley, who lives in Palm Coast, Fla., was visiting friends who live near the gun range in Naples. It wouldnt be her last visit. In hopes of helping other women grow in the same way, she decided to become a firearms instructor. She trained with Mobile Tactics owner Mike Christoff and also took his concealed weapons class. Shortly thereafter, she became certified as a firearms instructor with the National Rifle Association. Mike and other trainers saw things in me I didnt notice in my 45 years of life, says Ms. Jolley. Now she not only teaches other women how to shoot but is the lead instructor for both Shooting Sports Pro Shop in St. Augustine and for Home and Self-defense Specialists in Palm Coast. She shoots a Baby Eagle 9mm, a Bersa .380 caliber and a Sig Mosquito .22 caliber. Plus, men now take instruction from her. From teaching recreational shooting to law enforcement techniques, Ms. Jolley is one of a growing minority of female instructors from whom men are learning how to hit the target. Its always fun to start a class with men who have the prevailing attitude of, What is this woman gonna teach me? she says. Then, by the middle or the end of the class, they realize I know what Im talking about. She recounts giving lessons to a husband and wife. The husband, an exFrench military officer, was confident about his shooting skills; the wife was a novice. He attempted to control the class, and me, with his expertise, she says. But when it came time to shoot, the wife did very well, while the husband did not. He let me adjust his eye dominance, grip and stance, which improved his shooting but he still argued with me when I reminded him of these new habits, Ms. Jolley says. When the couple returned a month later, The wifes shooting skills were outstanding, she says, adding the husband finally began to adjust his old shooting habits since his wife was outshooting him.Colliers only indoor rangeWhen he moved from Michigan to Florida in 2002, Mike Christoff was ready to spread his firearms knowledge. He had been a police officer, a SWAT team member and a firearms instructor for more than 25 years. Hes also a licensed firearms dealer and an NRA instructor. With the initial intention to travel the U.S. using his Mobile Tactics unit for instruction, he decided to stay in Collier County and offer private instruction to individuals and law enforcement agencies. Mobile Tactics is a semi-trailer that has been modified with armor plating that can handle ammunition up to rifle fire, its armored walls lined with Sonex foam to help absorb the sound of gunfire. The bullet trap is comprised of ground rubber that captures the fired ammunition. It is Collier Countys first and only indoor gun range. Since 2006, Mr. Christoff has taught more than 2,500 people from ages 8 to 86 how to shoot. I had a World War II veteran come in who had not touched a gun since 1945, he says. He jumped right back into it. The majority of his customers, however, are women. Women who shootNaples resident Lori Coar was taken aback when someone banged on her front door at home. When she called out, Who is it? no one responded. Wisely, she decided not to open the door. Law enforcement later found footprints and a crushed cigarette butt on her front walkway. The single mother decided to take self-defense more seriously and learned how to shoot. Longtime Collier County resident Kerry Geroy, a principal with the investment management firm Naples Global Advisors, made shooting a three-generation family affair, bringing her 75-yearold mother and her 15-year-old daughter to Mobile Tactics. Marco Island resident Sabine Scholz accompanies her husband on hunting and recreational shooting trips. This activity led her to see Mr. Christoff for firearms instruction. I didnt want to buy a gun without getting proper training, Ms. Scholz says. Mr. Christoff, she adds, made the learning experience fun. After learning how to shoot properly, I find it relaxing to shoot after a hectic day. It allows me to focus on something else. Ms. Scholz has a concealed weapons permit and carries a gun with her. She owns a Glock 9mm and a Sig Sauer 1911 .45 caliber handgun.Babes with Bullets Pushing aside the politics and opinions about the firearms industry, many women are drawn to the male-dominated field. An annual survey by the National Shooting Sports Foundation shows there is a substantial increase in gun sales to women. MSNBC reports about 15 to 20 million women in the U.S. now pack some serious heat. Firearms training is about more than self-defense, says David Bugg, Ph.D., a professor and sociologist at State University of New York who studies women and guns. Women have more options in society today: hunting trips just for women, shooting competitions just for women, he says. It takes on a sort of a Sex in the City girls day out quality to it. Instead of sipping cosmopolitans, the bonding is over firearms it brings them together. Through her business called Babes with Bullets, Tucson-area instructor Deb Ferns offers a variety of all-female firearms camps and retreats throughout the U.S. Her sold-out programs, sponsored by the likes of Nikon, Smith & Wesson and others, draw first-time shooters and serious sharpshooters alike. A major contributor to the Outdoor Channel, Babes with Bullets also sponsors twin sisters who are U.S. champion biathletes hoping to compete in the 2014 Olympics in Russia. Biathlons combine cross-country skiing and rifle marksmanship.Empowerment discoveredWith camps and other available outlets, women continue to become empowered by learning how to shoot with the final result as loud as their first bullet fired. One womans firearms training gave her the courage to leave her abusive husband. A 62-year-old retired widow who had never touched a weapon took instruction and is now running her own business as a certified firearms instructor. Before Ms. Scholz ever thought about taking up shooting with her husband, she was shot during a bank robbery 10 years ago at the North Naples branch of Royal Palm Bank, where she was employed. Even if she had had a gun then, she says, it would not have made a difference. As bank employees, we are fully trained by law enforcement regarding how to handle illegal situations, she explains about the job. Chappell Hill Bank, a 104-year-old community bank just northwest of Houston, however, recently changed its firearms policy after a robbery last year. CEO Edward Smith changed the banks no firearms sign on the front of the building to one that encourages customers to carry licensed concealed weapons inside the bank. The first three people that said something about the sign were women, Mr. Smith says. Theyve been carrying their guns in the bank now instead of leaving them in their cars. Mr. Smith also pays his employees to take a concealed firearms class, and he says many of the banks tellers now carry concealed weapons. The CEO has witnessed a sizable increase of deposits coming into the bank from 13 states and five countries. Without breaking customer confidentiality, he says, I believe they support the Second Amendment and our Bill of Rights. Mr. Smith adds that while he was speaking on a radio show, a woman from California called the bank and deposited a five-figure CD. While Texas is self-reliant, the primary thing is if you have a sign on the door about firearms, now robbers dont know whos armed and whose not, he says.Policies in Florida The FDICs Office of Public Affairs states that concealed weapons in banks are governed by individual states. Under Florida law, a private business owner can prohibit the carrying of firearms on his or her property. According to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Florida Statute 810.08, it is not permissible to carry a concealed weapon into any federal building, including a Federal Reserve bank. However, Florida law does not have an outright prohibition against carrying a concealed weapon into a financial institution only if the business prohibits it directly. Such legalese can create confusion, but Chappell Hill Banks CEO in Texas brings common sense to the issues of gun control policies and laws issues that state and federal government officials will be hashing out for years.GUNSFrom page 1 SANDY REED / FLORIDA WEEKLY Mike Christoff of Mobile Tactics, left, instructs students in firearms safety. Lauren Schoepfer learns how to shoot an HK MP5 sub-machine gun.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2012 NEWS A9 Accessorize, accessorizeAs for Mobile Tactics gun range, it recently suffered damage from a fire that ignited when a customer shot his gun using reloads (bullets that are reloaded with more powerful gunpowder than originally allowed). For now, the range is closed, although Mr. Christoff continues to sell firearms in his shop at 470 Commercial Blvd. in Naples. Updates about the shooting range are available at www.MobileTactics.com. Along with selling guns at the shop, Mr. Christoff expanded his line of firearms accessories in 2010. After hearing customers and students express a common desire for a more comfortable gun holster, he created the Sticky Holster. It looks similar to a traditional gun holster, but its made from a rubber-based material that truly sticks and stays in place. It can be used by anyone but is especially good for those who are not used to wearing a holster. The Sticky Holster fits in a waistband or pocket and is also available as an ankle wrap. As the body moves, its compression against the unique material makes the gun stick, yet the gun easily slides out when needed. He started with one hand-made holster at a time, and now Mr. Christoff sells his Sticky Holster throughout the U.S. Joe Whitehead, a retired detective with the Naples Police Department, calls the holster the most practical and comfortconscious concealed carry system I have ever used. I taught defensive tactics to law enforcement for years, and one thing I learned is that a good holster must be safe, user-friendly and affordable. Helping women stay safeMr. Christoff isnt just about firearms and accessories. He also teaches unarmed self-defense classes, showing women how to heighten the awareness of their surroundings and teaching them specific physical self-defense techniques to use if they are ever physically attacked. He also is an instructor for Sexual Harassment and Rape Prevention (SHARP), a national program developed from Pressure Point Control Tactics Management Systems. Currently one in six women has endured a sexual assault, and 60 percent of assaults still go unreported, according to Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN). Based on this data, 15 of 16 rapists walk free. In the days of sharpshooter Annie Oakley, poet Ralph Waldo Emerson was right on target saying: Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. Thats exactly the plan for Joyce Jolley and countless other women. Along with being a nurse, an educator and firearms instructor, she also became a certified instructor for the self-defense program called Refuse To Be A Victim, which has benefited more than 70,000 women nationwide. So many changes in the past four years, she says. I smile at the possibilities and opportunities that lie ahead and ask myself, Whats next?

In 1959, 60 percent of the American population favored banning handguns. When it comes to firearms for selfdefense, Mike Christoff says oftentimes its the husband who decides to purchase a gun for inside the home and then asks if his wife or other family members should learn how to shoot. Shooting in self-defense is something you learn and hope you never have to use, he says. If theres a fire inside your home, and youre the only one who knows how to use a fire extinguisher, you limit the number of opportunities you have for putting out that fire. Its the same with having a gun in the house. While youre checking out a loud noise in the middle of the night and your adrenaline is pumping, you want know every member of your household knows how to safely use that gun in an emergency situation. But with any self-protection device, he stresses, theres an essential prerequisite: Arm yourself with knowledge and safety first. For some, safety might not be the most exciting subject, but he makes it exciting via a simple, hands-on lesson about guns, ammunition and the POW! behind the power of shooting any weapon. You might think anyone who shoots a gun can show another the same thing, but teaching target shooting is a completely different skill set one that he mastered long ago. His infectious enthusiasm coupled with his fun and interesting style of teaching are an invitation thats tough to refuse. And as a faithful advocate of the Second Amendment, he invited me and my daughters last year to check it out. When we reported for class, we were loaded with anticipation. My kids? Fearless. Kristin, age 19, enjoyed hearing Mikes explanation of the anatomy of a bullet and a gun and learning how a gun physically fires a bullet. Once I fired my first bullet, I suddenly felt strong, capable, and ready to take on any intruder who crosses my path, she says. Most important, though, she adds, was learning about gun safety. Lauren, 17, also felt empowered. If I were ever in danger, at least I would know to shoot a gun correctly to defend myself, she says. I also like the element of surprise people dont expect a teenage girl to know how to shoot. Me? Mike effortlessly plowed through my initial intimidation. And then I was blown away. With one shot, my confidence came bursting through like fireworks on the Fourth of July. Charlies Angels, were not. But thanks to Mikes superior instruction, my daughters and I are among the hundreds of women out there who are ready for our next mission, whatever it may be.

Moorings Park hosted the ceremony on Feb. 23. Take Stock students are matched with an adult mentor with whom they meet weekly until they graduate from high school. Students commit to maintaining a 2.5 grade point average, to remain drugand crime-free and to participate in Take Stock in Children events. Their parents commit to support and encourage their child in meeting his or her obligations. The emphasis is on providing an exemplary one-to-one mentoring and life-skills program to support students throughout high school. When the students fulfill their commitments and graduate, they receive a tuition scholarship to a Florida state university or postsecondary training program. To date, the Education Foundation has had 106 Take Stock graduates, and there are 122 in the program now, including the most recent eighth-grade inductees representing 14 schools. Since the beginning of the program in 2000, the retention rate has averaged 90 percent, and 99 percent of the 106 graduates have gone on to some type of post-secondary education. This year, 104 eligible applicants from middle schools across Collier County went through the application and selection process. A selection committee made up of volunteers from the community had the difficult task of evaluating the candidates and making the final selection. This year, in addition to 22 eighthgrade inductees, the Education Foundation inducted five students who are earning scholarships through the Southwest Florida Workforce Development Board. Take Stock in Children is a statewide program. The Education Foundation manages this program in all areas of Collier County except for Immokalee Middle and High School, which is managed by The Immokalee Foundation.

Cleveland Ave www.LightingFirst.us Cascade byA shower of crystals and natural shells ow from this elegant design in heritage bronze nish to punctuate your space in paradise. fall love in Religious rapPart-time Devon, England, vicar Gavin Tyte, who serves churches in Uplyme and Axmouth, recently produced a rap video of the Nativity, in which he plays a shepherd, an angel and the narrator. Sample lyrics (about Mary placing her baby in a cattle trough and angels calming the frightened shepherds): No hotel, motel, custom baby-changer / She wrapped the baby up and laid him in a manger and Chill out, my friends, theres no need for trepidation / Got a message for the world, and its elation information. Government in action Apparently, not only will there be fewer overall resources for disabled people in Greece (due to government austerity), but the resources will be spread over a larger number of recipients. The Labor Ministry in January expanded the category of eligible disabled (with reducedamount payments) to include pyromaniacs, compulsive gamblers, fetishists, sadomasochists, pedophiles, exhibitionists and kleptomaniacs. The National Confederation of Disabled People said the changes would inevitably reduce funds available for the blind and the crippled and other traditional categories of need. Even at a time of schoolteacher layoffs nationally, the Buffalo, N.Y., school system continues to cover all costs for cosmetic surgery for teachers. The benefit was established in the calmer 1970s, and no one, it seems, anticipated the facelift and liposuction crazes that subsequently developed. The annual expense in recent years, for about 500 benefit-takers a year, has been from $5 million to $9 million (equivalent to the average salaries of at least 100 teachers). The teachers union said it is willing to give up the benefit in a new collective bargaining agreement, but a quirk in New York law lessens the incentive of teachers to negotiate such a contract (in that the current, highly lucrative contract remains in force until replaced). In February, Kenneth Gunn, of the U.K.s Scottish Borders Council, decried the budget cutbacks that closed down local offices that had previously posted marriage notices. By making it more difficult for the public to be aware of specific marriages, Mr. Gunn feared an inevitable increase in incest. I am aware in my own ward of brothers sitting beside sisters they do not know in primary school. (The problem is more serious in Iceland, whose 300,000 people are far more self-contained. However, a new website containing genealogical data back 1,200 years is expected to help reduce the risk of incest.) Great art! Two British designers (who claim they had the idea independently and learned of the other only after they finished) recently produced elegant pieces using parts from a 2012 Ford Focus. Judy Clark made a dress and a biker jacket adorned with car keys, radio and dashboard components, seat covers, a speedometer and red taillights. Katherine Hawkins created a necklace using dials, springs, buttons, seat materials and instrument panel switches. Swiss artist Christoph Buchel has now secured local permits to bury a Boeing 727 38 feet under a patch of Californias Mojave Desert, near Bakersfield. Visitors will take a tunnel down in order to tour the 153-foot-long plane. In February, a German court awarded artist Stefan Bohnenberger the equivalent of about $2,600 from the Munich gallery that had previously housed his work, Pommes dOr, which consisted of two ordinary French fries contrasted with two golden-leafed ones. The gallery returned the golden-leafed ones but claimed it could not find the ordinary fries, and, anyway, pointed out that they were nothing but old French fries. Police report Police officers are, of course, generally forbidden to engage in sex acts in order to gather evidence. Thus, a scandal erupted in the UK in January when The Guardian revealed that two undercover officers had fathered children (to enhance their credibility) while infiltrating protest groups beginning in the 1980s. After the two women learned in late 2011 who their kids fathers really were, they filed lawsuits against the responsible police agencies. (In Sydney, Australia, a state contractor operated under no such restriction when it hired a brothel inspector in January. Brothels are legal and regulated in Sydney, and if off-books facilities are providing sex illegally, the inspector can testify from first-hand knowledge.) Mayor Jim Preacher of the town of Norway, S.C., was pulled over by a state trooper in January for speeding. Mr. Preacher was unable to convince the trooper that his speeding was necessary in the performance of a mayoral duty, and their encounter apparently ended bitterly. As soon as the trooper drove off, the mayor turned on his own blue lights, chased the trooper down and accused the trooper of speeding. (Norway disbanded its police department last year, and a question remains whether the mayor has police powers.) Ms. Khadijah Baseer was arrested in Los Angeles in January on suspicion of prostitution. According to several men, Ms. Baseer had opened their car doors in the drive-thru lane at a McDonalds, offering them oral sex in exchange for Chicken McNuggets. Misty Kullman, 25, was arrested for prostitution in Shelby, N.C., in January after police stopped a man who said Ms. Kullman performed an act for the agreed-upon price of $6. The man said he paid Ms. Kullman with a $2 bill, three $1s and coins. NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

In 1990, he was called to active duty Marine Corps and served in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait as a Stinger missile team leader. In 1996, he accepted a position as postal inspector and was assigned to the Birmingham Field Office until 2002, when he became a federal air marshal.

In May 2009, he transferred with the Federal Air Marshal Service to serve as the assistant federal security director for law enforcement at Southwest Florida International Airport. For his presentation in Naples, he will discuss the evolution of the TSA since its inception 10 years ago and the future direction of the organization.

(across from Coastland Center). The cost of $38 per person includes free parking and round-trip trolley transportation to Under the Shady Palm, McCabes Irish Pub and Paddy Murphys Irish Pub. Appetizers will be served throughout the night, and live entertainment along the way will include bagpipers and Irish dancers. Parade Chief Marshal Patrick Mahoney recalls that 10 years ago, he and his wife followed fellow parade committee member John Harris and several bagpipers around town the night before the parade. John would take the bagpipers into Fifth Avenue bars to advertise that the parade was the following day, Mr. Mahoney says. We had such fun that my wife suggested that we rent a vehicle to make it safer for the partygoers and bagpipers. He presented that idea to the parade committee the following year, and the pub crawl was born. We sold out six trolleys, and we called it Naples Largest Moving Land Party, he says. The pub crawl has since been moved to the week before the parade and has become one of the favorite fundraisers of the parade season. Raffle tickets for a trip to Ireland are also being sold to raise parade funds. The package includes air transportation for two and $1,000 spending money. Tickets for $5 each or six for $25 can be purchased online at www.stpatricksparadenaples.com or by mailing a check payable to Naples St. Patrick Foundation Inc. to 300 Fifth Ave. S., #101, PMB 326, Naples, FL 34103. The winning raffle ticket will be drawn after the parade at 4 p.m. Saturday, March 17, on the main stage at McCabes Irish Pub. Parade-day festivities begin at 9:30 a.m. with the 18th annual flag-raising at The Dock at Crayton Cove. The Chairmen of the Chord will perform the national anthem. Vin DePasquale of The Dock and Riverwalk restaurants has underwritten the ceremony. The parade steps out at 11 a.m. and follows a route through Old Naples. Participants include marching bands, bagpipe bands, Irish dancers, floats and more. Morgan French, Little Miss Smiling irish Eyes 2011, with members of the Southwest Florida Harp & Thistle Band

Bill was a freshman at college when he experimented with drugs and experienced a terrifying psychotic break. He believed the whole world even his family was against him. His distraught parents turned to the David Lawrence Center Crisis Stabilization Unit where he was kept safe and medically supervised. Bill spent the next two years working with a psychiatrist and therapist to identify and cope with these damaging thoughts so he could return to his studies. 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. One in nine of us will experience some form of substance abuse. When a family member, friend or coworker battles a mental health or substance abuse problem, we suffer with them. Thankfully, David Lawrence Center is here for our community. A not-for-prot organization founded and still governed by community leaders, the David Lawrence Center is the behavioral health component of our communitys healthcare network.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA28 WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2012 A Duck in the Ducts...or Why Doesnt My Air Conditioning Work Right?The noise in the attic and the musty smell coming from the vents were strange enough. But what the technician found was downright weird a Duck in the Ducts of someones house! Every line of work has its legends and its lore ... but theres the duck, captured in a photo as she brooded over a huge clutch of eggs inside an Air Duct. Resident expert Dave Borowski, with over 35 years in the Air Conditioning industry, has seen it all! The problem is that when the homes were built, their Air Duct Systems were compromised. And when replacement Air Conditioning Systems were installed years later, corrective action to the Air Duct Systems was never taken! An Air Duct system thats too small typically causes hi gh energy bills, results in poor humidity control and even shows dirt streaks coming from the Air Conditioning grills. Technicians find all kinds of problems with the Air Ducts in our customers homes: undersized Air Ducts, poor insulation, poor installation, leaky Ducts, sweating, defective air returns, Air Ducts contaminated with mold, even wildlife! Common Air Duct problems in south Florida point to lax and non-existent building codes. Cruel Truth #1 is what contractors dont want you to know. Taking shortcuts and installing smaller Ducts can increase profits by shortchanging things people dont look for when they buy a home. Cruel Truth #2 is that a lot of contractors might not know how to engineer a proper Air Duct System. Worse, there are some who just dont care! One example stands out: while contractors should protect homes from mold and improve air circulation in the bedrooms, some take shortcuts, installing jumper ducts that dont provide the same value ... or they install no return ducts at all. Cruel Truth #3 is that your Air Duct System probably runs through your attic which is just like an oven in south Florida. And the brutal temperatures in south Florida attics can cook the life out of the taped seams on the Air Ducts. Ive heard only one duck story! said Dave, but the duck tale highlights a fact about south Florida Ductwork: A lot of things can go wrong with the Air Ducts and just about all of them can increase your energy bills. Most often a skilled technician can fix these problems at a cost so reasonable it surprises homeowners. And you may get your money back in lower utility bills. A well trained, North American Technician Excellence (NATE) certified technician will conduct several tests. One involves checking the temperature rise and drop to make sure the temperature is in the right range in every room. A static duct pressure test measures the pressure of the air moving through the Ducts. This is like taking your blood pressure at the doctor. If the pressure isnt right in your blood vessels or your Air Ducts, theres a problem! By sizing and installing the ductwork properly, youll gain the efficiency and capacity you paid for when you bought your Air Conditioning System. A Duct System that matches the size of your Air Conditioning System saves on utilities increases the comfort of your Air Quality and extends the life of your Air Conditioning System.

I discovered that I had breast cancer during a routine mammogram in July 2011. My surgeon recommended that I meet with Oncologist at Premiere Oncology. Dr. Kerwin helped me with my decision as to which treatment plan was best for me. He was very knowledgeable, patient and spent as much time with me as I needed. He explained all of my options, which made me feel at peace with my decision for radiation therapy. During each and every visit, I was welcomed warmly by everyone I came in contact with at Premiere Oncology. Dr. Kerwin, his nurse Jennifer and my radiation therapist Kim provided me the best care I could have ever expected.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2012 A30 and dental hygienists, other medical professionals and office/administrative helpers the 501(c)(3) clinic is dedicated to providing quality health care in a caring, supportive environment to low-income, working but uninsured adults in Collier County. Its first home was donated space in the nowdemolished Grand Central Station commercial complex, courtesy of then-owner NCH Healthcare System. One generous contributor, who gave the Lascheids $50,000 in seed money to start the dispensary, came up with a $1 million donation for the new building the clinics current home on GoodletteFrank Road. With a mission to break the cycle of poverty and give hope to future generations of patients, today the clinic receives support from private donations, businesses, foundations, service clubs, civic and religious organizations as well as grants; it does not accept any government funding. A retired dermatologist, Dr. Lascheid has degrees from Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pa.; University of Pittsburgh; Case Western Reserve University; and The Cleveland Clinic. He served with first Marine Division in Korea in 1951-52, his tour of duty including serving as a battalion surgeon and with a MASH unit. After moving to Naples, he joined the medical staff at Naples Community Hospital, where he was chief of medicine for two years. In 1992-93, he served as president of the Collier County Medical Society. Mr. Lascheid is a registered nurse who holds degrees from Allegheny College, Jackson Memorial Hospital and the University of Pittsburgh.

As 200 people were arriving at Keewaydin Island for the Magic Under the Mangroves patron party on a chilly Feb. 12 afternoon, an unexpected and unhappy guest dropped in. The distressed brown pelican was spotted around the Keewaydin Club docks by Dave Addison, Conservancy biologist. Realizing the bird was unable to take flight, he covered its head and started to investigate further. Ed Wilson came in to assist, holding the pelican while Mr. Addison began an initial examination. They discovered fishing line wrapped around the pelicans wing and its body. Joanna Fitzgerald, director of the Conservancy wildlife clinic, arrived via ferry as Mr. Addison was working to remove a hook from the pelicans left foot. All in all, the team removed three hooks and fishing line from various parts of the animal. After the hooks were removed, Ms. Fitzgerald accompanied the pelican to the wildlife clinic to conduct a complete examination. She discovered a toe on its right foot had been severely injured previously. The toe was dead and needed to be amputated. Since the bird was weak, however, Ms. Fitzgerald decided to wait for it to gain some weight and strength. Conservancy veterinarian Dr. Rachel Goldfarb conducted surgery Feb. 21 to remove the toe, and so far the pelican is doing well. The foot is still wrapped in a bandage while it is healing. Several tickets are still available for Magic Under the Mangroves, on Thursday, March 8, at the Conservancy.About the ConservancyThe Conservancy of Southwest Florida began in 1964 when community leaders came together to defeat a proposed Road to Nowhere and spearheaded the acquisition and protection of Rookery Bay. Today, the organization focuses on the critical environmental issues of Southwest Florida region with a mission to protect the regions water, land and wildlife through combined efforts of environmental education, science and research, policy and advocacy and wildlife rehabilitation.

SCAN FOR A VIDEO TOURLocal environmental policies are subject of discussion at League of Women VotersThe League of Women Voters of Collier County invites members and guests to a program about Assessing Local Environmental Policies beginning at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 6, at the Country Club of Naples. Guest speakers Michael Bauer, Ph.D., who is the natural resources manager for the city of Naples, and environmental scientist Cloe Waterfield will discuss environmental challenges that confront Collier County, including climate change and rising sea levels. Since our economy is largely driven by tourism, agriculture, and the housing and service industries, legislative initiatives can make a major difference in achieving a balance among these competing interests. Dr. Bauer, who also holds a law degree, works on all aspects of land and water environmental issues facing the city from beach renourishment to the restoration of Naples Bay. He works with federal, state and regional agencies, and responds to citizen advisory groups. Ms. Waterfield graduated with first class honors in marine biology and received a distinction at the masters level in marine resource development and protection in the U.K. She established Twentyfifty in 2007 to help private and public entities address environmental issues, particularly energy and climate, in their operations. Twentyfifty projects have included greenhouse gas emissions inventories for the cities of Naples, Sarasota and North Port as well as Collier and Lee counties and a number of private entities. Her firm was recently awarded a contract by the city of Naples to develop and implement an energy outreach campaign and Green Business Certification program called NPower Naples. Guests are invited to lunch at noon before the program. Admission to the program is free; lunch is $20 for members of the League of Women Voters of Collier County and $25 for nonmembers. The leagues monthly general membership meeting will follow the presentation at 1:30 p.m. Lunch reservations are required and must be made before 4 p.m. Friday, March 2.

Naples Christian Academy kids, staff show how recycling is the way to go SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYSome events around Southwest Florida have become greener, thanks to efforts by students at Naples Christian Academy. The elementary and middle schoolers have been setting up, cleaning up and tearing down recycling receptacles at events such as the recent Naples National Art Festival in Cambier Park. Proceeds from the recycled containers support U.S. post9/11 disabled veterans, with a portion of donated to Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for returning veterans. Student efforts are part of the Dream Machine Recycle Rally, an extracurricular challenge to promote recycling awareness. NCA is one of more than 500 participating schools across the nation. The challenge is to collect the highest average number of (non-alcoholic) bottles and cans per student within one school year, August 2011 through April 2012. NCA students, parents, teachers and faculty have been collecting recyclable containers since October, vying for the top prize of $50,000 in funding for "green improvements for their school. NCA, with just 137 students, is challenging a much larger school, St. Cornelius Catholic School in Chicago, Ill., for first place. NCA students have volunteered at numerous events to collect large quantities of plastic and aluminum containers. Theyve also offered weekly recycling pick-up services to businesses that want to support their efforts. Recyclables can also be dropped off at the school, 3161 Santa Barbara Blvd. Businesses can inquire about weekly pick-ups by calling the NCA office at 455-1080 or e-mailing email@example.com. The Dream Machine Recycle Rally is one pillar of the larger Dream Machine program, a multi-year collaboration between PepsiCo, Waste Management and Keep America Beautiful. Through www.greenopolis.com, the program has made thousands of recycling bins and kiosks available in public venues to make it more convenient and rewarding for people to recycle.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA38 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2012 Passion fuels great leaders of all typesOur recent observance of Presidents Day, which commemorates leadership, got me to thinking about all the leaders both formal and informal we have around NCH and in our community. I describe them as trustworthy, communicative, respectful, transparent, positive, collaborative, conscientious and compassionate. And all of them are passionate about what they do. As leadership guru John Maxwell says: A great leaders courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position. Here, an alphabetical order, are just a few examples of great leaders at NCH: Lesage Augustin and Karen Wald are pillars of the team that runs our bed board, orchestrating a busy schedule for 715 beds and 36,000 admissions each year. Linda Cifani, ARNP has had a busy year moving a team of 13 cardiologists into the Naples Heart Institute on the third floor of the Briggs Health Pavilion. Elizabeth Foster, 3 South night charge nurse, helped revise the clinical ladder for nursing so that it rewards educational achievements that enhance careers and improve care for patients and families. Flora Frazier environmental services at our North Naples campus, is always in motion, happy and charming as she and her team go about insure that our first impression is a great one. Jon Kling, director of critical care, manages 58 beds, 130 ICU nurses and 25 other highly technically colleagues who care for our nearly 3,000 most critically ill patients each year. Mr. Kling also assists greatly with compliance issues. Richard Moore is one of 32 building engineers who keep our facilities more than 875,000 square feet humming along flawlessly. Maria Racine and James Quero, purchasing agents, have been busy as new construction and refurbishing of older units necessitates complicated purchases of new equipment. Together, they obtain the right materials at the right price and all at hospital grade. Sue Slaght, director of revenue reimbursement oversight, and Noble Arrington and Jerry Markham keep us straight financially, which is no easy task these days in health care. Julie Stoner North Naples ER nurse, is team leader for shared governance and a member of the practice council. Jeff Weiss (no relation) has been an NCH oncology pharmacist for 17 years and is meticulous in collaborating with our 16 oncologists to secure proper protocols, in as safe a manner as possible, of extremely powerful medications for cancer patients. Scott Wiley director of respiratory therapy, consistently steps up when the organization acquires a new need or function. Recent examples of his leadership include management of the Hospital Emergency Response Team and supervision of cardiac imaging throughout the system. These are but a handful of the formal and informal leaders who define our NCH culture and make us who we are in the community. Dr. Allen Weiss is the president and CEO of NCH Healthcare System. HEALTHY LIVING allenWEISSallen.email@example.com Theres good news about niacins role in good cholesterol SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe University of FloridaMaintaining healthy cholesterol levels can keep heart disease, heart attack and stroke away. And a commonly used vitamin could help by increasing production of good cholesterol in the body, researchers at the University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville have found. The findings were published recently in the journal Metabolism, Clinical and Experimental. Physicians have long prescribed a B vitamin called nicotinic acid to help keep good cholesterol levels high. Early studies suggest that niacin prevents the removal of good cholesterol known as high-density lipoprotein or HDL from the body, and in so doing, raises the concentration of the substance. But new results from studies of human cells suggest that niacin plays an even greater role, not just preventing removal, but actually boosting production of good cholesterol in the liver and small intestine.Weve known the value of nicotinic acid for years, but this shows there could be even more benefits than we thought, says Michael Haas, the studys lead author and a research associate professor of medicine. A persons cholesterol reading is made up of two major parts: HDL and low-density lipoprotein (also called LDL or bad cholesterol). HDL is responsible for moving cholesterol out of various tissues and into the liver so it can be flushed from the body. Doctors recommend keeping good cholesterol levels high and bad cholesterol levels low.The body uses nicotinic acid to convert carbohydrates into energy. It is found in many over-the-counter multivitamin formulations and is sometimes prescribed on its own to lower triglycerides and increase good cholesterol. But until now, researchers werent quite sure whether niacin could actually increase good cholesterol levels. To find definitive evidence, the UF researchers tested human liver and intestine cells in the first study of its kind. They found that nicotinic acid increased the activity of a gene that produces a protein called apolipoprotein A-1, which is the major component of good cholesterol in the blood. Not only that, the researchers were able to identify the specific region of the gene that was responsible for making new HDL. The work was funded by a $20,000 grant from the Endocrine Fellows Association to former UF fellow Dr. AbdulRazzak Alamir. We have hoped for a long time that we would develop a medicine to raise the good cholesterol. Unfortunately, many people do not tolerate the side effect of the drug nicotinic acid, says Dr. Stewart Albert, a professor of internal medicine at the St. Louis University School of Medicine, who was not involved in the research. What Dr. Haas and his group have done is demonstrate how nicotinic acid can increase the bodys ability to make the good cholesterol. This may enable researchers to find other medications that will accomplish the same benefit with a lower rate of side effects. The other authors of the study are Dr. Arshag Mooradian, professor and chairman of the UF College of MedicineJacksonville department of medicine; Dr. Joe Chehade, a UF associate professor of internal medicine; Dr. Senan Sultan, a former UF fellow; and Dr. Norman Wong, a professor of medicine, biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of Calgary. Many factors matter when trying to manage menopause SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYAlthough humorous books and movies about menopause abound, the symptoms and discomfort that women suffer are no laughing matter. Hormone therapy can be an option for some. At menopause, which in the United States happens at the average age of 51, a womans body makes less estrogen, which leads to symptoms such as hot flashes, difficulty sleeping, mood swings and other discomforts. The lack of estrogen also can increase the risk of bone loss, known as osteoporosis. Hormone replacement therapy can restore estrogen after menopause. Dr. Dennis Hidlebaugh, chairman of obstetrics and gynecology for Physicians Regional Healthcare System, stresses that the decision whether to begin on hormone therapy depends upon a womans personal needs, her medical and family history and the range of symptoms she is experiences as well as other risks of bone loss she might have. According to Dr. Hidlebaugh, about 75 percent of women going through menopause experience hot flashes, some as often as several times a day and others only a few times a month. A hot flash can happen anytime day or night and can last from a few seconds to several minutes or longer. Low estrogen levels in menopausal women also can lead to a higher risk of bone loss; after menopause, a womans bones slowly lose strength and become more fragile. As a result, Dr. Hidlebaugh explains, older women are more likely to break bones. The hip, wrist and spine are affected most often, and women with a personal history or family history of fractures are more likely to get osteoporosis, he adds. In addition to preserving bone, estrogen helps bones absorb calcium, which gives them strength. However, it only protects bones for as long as a woman takes the hormone therapy; when a woman stops taking estrogen, bone loss resumes. Hormone replacement is not recommended just to prevent bone loss, Dr. Hidlebaugh says. Women taking hormone therapy to relieve other symptoms of menopause, however, can also get the benefit of protecting their bones. Exercise also can help prevent bone loss. Weight-bearing exercise, such as walking, strengthens bones just as muscles are made stronger by using them. Some studies have shown that estrogen also has a positive effect on mood and short-term memory in women, Dr. Hidlebaugh says. In addition, hormone therapy, when taken with progesterone, can lower the risk of endometrial and colon cancer. Like most treatments, hormone therapy is not risk-free. Among the risks that can increase with the use of estrogen therapy are those of developing endometrial cancer and blood clots and of suffering heart attack or stroke. Dr. Hidlebaugh urges that women talk to their doctors about their personal needs, family and medical history and discuss any other medications before making a decision about hormone therapy. NELSON KEEFER / UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAMichael Haas is among the authors of a study showing nicotinic acid could help produce more good cholesterol.

While there is no question Im extremely proud of the caliber of physicians representing our hospitals, these highly skilled doctors rely on a network of talented professionals supporting their efforts. Though we have all heard the words unsung heroes many times before, no other expression is as profoundly appropriate when describing one specific subset of medical professionals, a group whose daily contributions are the backbone of the patient experience: the nursing staff. No one states a nurses purpose better than Carol McConn, herself a registered nurse for more than 30 years and Physicians Regional Healthcare Systems chief nursing officer, when she says: Nursing is a calling, a vocation and a passion that is the culmination of the art and science of caring. Examples of the humble yet heroic acts of compassion performed by Naples-area nurses can fill this space many times over. I offer but a few: The nurse who drove an elderly patients wife home upon discovering the woman was afraid to drive alone at night and walked her to the door. The nurse who arranged for her sister to go to the airport and pick up a patients adult daughter. The nurse who went to a local Walmart to purchase new clothes for a patient whose clothing had been cut off after an accident. The nurse who took it upon herself to provide daycare for a patients beloved dog. And finally, the nurse who ended her shift only to return to a patients bedside to hold his hand as he took his last breaths so he wouldnt die alone. No, this doesnt just happen on television. Whether a part of Physicians Regional Healthcare System or not, our extraordinary local nursing community undoubtedly brings much more to Collier County than meets the eye. The nurses assist the physicians to explain a difficult diagnosis and treatments to patients and their families. They coordinate care of the patients with all providers while in the hospital and through aftercare. Nurses involve the patients families and support system in the development of the plan of care. And, of course, they assist with highly technical and complex procedures that save lives. The breadth of practice includes nurses serving schools, home health, office practices, mental health practices, acute and long-term care, hospice and other specialties such as obstetrics, pediatric, emergency room, critical care and operating room. From my perspective, I see nurses as caregivers to our entire community. They walk to raise awareness for breast cancer, heart disease and other causes. They volunteer for quality organizations such as the Neighborhood Health Clinic, helping to provide health care to low-income, working but uninsured adults in Collier County. They serve as advocates for the health and well-being of friends, family and neighbors all over Collier County and in communities everywhere. And just like teachers, police, fireand-rescue personnel and the host of others involved in careers built on giving to the community, our nurses deserve our enduring gratitude and respect. Have you thanked a nurse today? You should.

MARTY BECKER Universal UclickVeterinarians have long recognized something very sad about how cats are treated: Compared to dogs, cats arent given much medical care at all. And thats just not right. We know more about the care and treatment of cats than ever, and as veterinarians, we want to share what we know and what we can do for the good of cats everywhere. That means preventive care before a cat gets sick proactive care and advice that keeps a cat healthy. And when cats do get sick, we veterinarians not only want to address little health problems before they become big health problems and sometimes become untreatable but we also want to help treat those problems in ways that are less painful to our patients. The word is getting out, but too slowly for my taste. As great as you may be in your role of pet parent at home, theres no substitute for your cats regular wellness checks with the vet. When you consider these visits, think of your cat for a second as a trusty, wellloved car. You see that car every day and you know how it looks and how it sounds. But do you really understand what goes on under the hood? Your cats veterinarian is responsible for checking your cats internal systems and making sure hes running right. Long years studying every aspect of animal health and learning the ropes of feline medicine make your cats veterinarian the pro at not only diagnosing health issues and troubles, but also at anticipating them. Veterinarians know what problems can be common at what ages. For most young, healthy cats, an annual checkup after kittenhood should be enough. Your cats veterinarian may order basic lab tests to provide baseline information on whats normal for your pet at the time your pet is spayed or neutered and then again in middle age for an early comparison. At every visit, your cat should get a nose-to-toes examination and an objective assessment of his general health and body condition. As your cat enters middle-age, your veterinarian may recommend bringing him twice a year for routine exams I certainly do. These semi-annual exams and the diagnosics that go with them can actually save you money and your pet pain, spotting problems early and slowing or even stopping some agerelated issues for a good long while. When you factor in any increased risk of health problems, frequent wellness checks become the No. 1 tool available to you for keeping your feline companion in good health and for saving you money in the long run. To return to the car repair theme: You can pay me now or you can pay me later. Routine health maintenance always saves. Sadly, if you ignore preventive care for your cat the way so many people do, its your cat who will have the most suffering when it comes to paying. Special bonus video: Vetstreet dogtrainer Mikkel Becker shows how to greet your dog appropriately to eliminate behavior problems when you are in and out you home.

All of them. The herd. Lowing. Somniloquence with four legs and four stomach compartments and four mammary glands. I wanted to stay, looking forever. Just like that. But then a thought emerged. One would have to be asleep to bear it. To see eyes, limpid and languid, and soft skin and huge contentment on the way to becoming. Becoming burgers and sausage and steaks on a grill. It leaves me, feeling insane and inane, singing silently old enslaved spirituals: Let me people go. They are, after all, the best of me. They are effortless eating, shitting and sleeping without recourse to obstructive commentary. They are beauty on the hoof, simple, untippable, imperturbable. Wide eyed and bare. Guileless. Unaffected. Wonder streams from the eye of this beholding. Is it they who are ignorant, these holy cows? Is it ignorance to know not the state of your future demise? Is it ignorance to know not the winds of your prevailing mythos? Could they, after all, forget the god theyve never seen but only felt, seated upon their bullish backs? Or the divine baby hidden in hay, never heard but merely breathed upon while lying in their food trough? Perhaps the real ignorance is to have a cow, to indulge anger and upset and the stories that incubate such sufferings. Perhaps there is the deeper ignorance: the being asleep to the drama of our eating and being eaten, like larger and larger Darwin fish bumper sticker narrative. Who makes it across the life desert tundra without leaving behind a slew of death and destruction? Every step and every breath is a universe annihilated. Milk it for what its worth, it seems more milk of magnesia than the milk of human kindness. Is that the whole land of milk and honey? Or perhaps it is just looking through the peep hole, the glory hole, the pin hole, the key hole. In this act of seeing, that eye is being seen. The visionary visions the seer in the seen.

Governing grouper grabsA change in the recreational gag grouper fishing season for a second consecutive year could impact business this winter for local charter captains, already paying higher fuel costs to shuttle eager anglers. Local captains say the change from a split season that allowed gag fishing during winter months and Southwest Floridas peak tourist season to a late summer-early fall timetable could keep some regulars away. And some are questioning the motives of Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission members in approving an earlier season that gives anglers in a four-county region of the states Big Bend area surrounding the state capitol first shot at the fish. The commission approved changes earlier this month that pushes the recreational season for gag grouper to the summer, from July 1 to Oct. 31, while approving an executive order that creates an April 1 to June 30 recreational season in state waters off Taylor, Jefferson, Wakulla and Franklin counties. For some local fishing captains who make their living during winters high tourist season, the FWCs action could amount to a gag order on gag grouper. During the winter months more of my customers are Canadian, northerners and older, says Capt. Tom McLaughlin, a commercial fisherman and charter captain based in Cape Haze. They are big into food fish. Next to red snapper, gag grouper is the most sought-after fish in the gulf. The commission says its merely aligning its season with pending federal management actions designed to rebuild the population of gag grouper, a species that is overfished in the Gulf of Mexico. The state agency also reduced the minimal commercial size from 24 to 22 inches in length.BY NANCI THEORETFlorida Weekly Correspondent Fishermen say new state regs favor northern countiesSEE GROUPER, B7 CRAIG JONES c 239.825.6857 | o 239.403.4510 | f 239.434.2345 | firstname.lastname@example.orgSothebys International Realty and the Sothebys International Realty logo are registered service marks used with permission.

SW Floridas Fastest Growing Mortgage Bank! www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2012 Melting up is new market jargon for a market strongly moving upward and gold has certainly been doing that since Dec. 29 intraday low of $1,523 an ounce. As of the Feb. 24 close at $1,773, gold has gained of 16 percent in almost two months (source: OEC data feed). Can the gold story still have more bull in it? Non-investors in gold dont want to hear what the price action is shouting. Gold is a lot more than just a safe haven for institutional and individual investors fearing more Euro tragedies; gold is now moving upward in reaction to the Middle East heating up. The U.S. and Israel and others want to prevent Iran from achieving nuclear weapons capabilities. As the leaders in Iran are fanatical (as perceived by me and a few billion other people) the predominant choices for play out include: a preemptive strike on Iran and/or Iran blockades oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz or some combination thereof. So short term, there could be more of an upward spike. But the gains since year-end are not all Iran or Greek crisis-related. There is a long-term story in the making, as gold is one of the assets held in foreign currency reserves of various countries and one particular country has pounded the table that its gold should be bought. World Official Gold Holdings as of November 2011 (as reported in the World Gold Councils release on Jan. 12, 2012) shows that the U.S. leads all countries in ownership of gold at some 8,133 tons. Distant, but with sizable holdings, are Germany, Italy and France. China is in fifth place with an estimated 1,054 tons of gold. (The last official gold report by the Peoples Bank of China was June 30, 2009, per I-Net Bridge News, Jan. 16, 2012.) Most of the aforementioned countries do not have an extra two pennies to buy more gold, and some of them might have to ultimately collateralize sovereign debts with their gold. Rather, it is the developing and emerging countries that are building their reserve gold positions, per the World Gold Council. China, which has some $3.2 trillion in foreign exchange reserves at 2011s year end, certainly has the buying power to do such. China has multiple good reasons to buy gold. Chinas (last reported) gold reserves represent only 1.6 percent of its total foreign exchange reserves, compared with the world average of 11 percent and the U.S.s 74 percent (Forbes, Dec. 2, 2011, Soros Bet On Chow Tai Fook Highlights Chinas Rampant Gold Demand). On Dec. 25, 2011, a director of the Peoples Bank of China Research Bureau, Zhang Jinhua, made a press release of significance to the gold market: The Chinese government should be wary of the risk of inflationary pressures picking up and should buy gold as a hedge against that possibility (WSJ. PBOC Official: China Should Adjust FX Portfolio, Buy Gold Assets When Price Drops). And guess what? The decline in gold going into the year-end coincidentally ended on Dec. 29 (OEC data feed). You might be thinking, Who has inflation in this deflationary world? Chinas domestic inflation ran 5.4 percent in 2011 (Reuters, Jan. 12, 2012) and Bernanke wants 2 percent inflation as U.S. long term goal (Bloomberg Business Week, Jan. 26, 2012). Some would reasonably ask, Why would the Chinese announce that they plan to buy gold on-the-cheap? How could they be so dumb? Maybe not so dumb: China is definitely making moves away from the U.S. dollar as a reserve currency and maybe part of its agenda is to have gold be viewed as (and actually acts) as a stable and appreciating alternative currency. Consider two BIG trade deals all done when the U.S. was celebrating Christmas and New Years. On Dec. 26, China and Japan announced a currency agreement, China and Japan have agreed to start direct trading of their currencies (NYT, Dec. 26, 2011 Currency Agreement for Japan and China). Then comes India, striking a crude oil deal with Iran; Indian companies would pay for 45 percent of their imports in Indian rupees thus avoiding the need to pay in dollars and might even settle the remainder of the debts through barter (NY Times Feb., 2012, India Defends Oil Purchases from Iran). Barter? Did India really mean payment in gold? Gold always seems expensive but is needed in a portfolio as a meaningful hedge against further U.S. dollar devaluation or against Central Banker intent to create inflation. Can gold retrace from these levels? Absolutely. This metal, like crude, might be over bought at these levels and see meaningful price correction. Further, the price action in the base metals is not positive; for instance, the pressure on copper prices might mean that China has more in inventory than thought or mean that copper buyers still see a retraction in China and Europe. These are merely my opinions. Talk to your adviser about investment suitability. Consider the counsel of several advisers, especially those with specialization in precious metals.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2012 For business owners, reacting to a natural disaster or emergency not only means ensuring the immediate safety of employees, but also planning how the business will continue to function in the aftermath. The Better Business Bureau advises owners to be prepared for the unexpected with a comprehensive business continuation plan. According to the Insurance Institute for Home and Business Safety, one in four small businesses forced to close because of a disaster never reopens. Those that have a business continuity plan in place and use it during and after disaster strikes typically experience less damage, loss and downtime than businesses without a plan. If your business lacks an emergency plan, a natural disaster can turn into a business catastrophe, says Karen Nalven, president of BBB serving West Florida. After youve made plans to ensure the safety of your employees, BBB offers the following advice to help keep your business operating and meeting customers needs in the wake of a disaster: Dont be caught off guard. Consider the different types of disasters fire, flood, tornado, hurricane that can occur and how your business would respond differently to being displaced for a week, a month or longer. Know your surroundings. Determine alternate locations for your business to operate if you are displaced from your current building. This could mean enabling employees to work from home or finding another space for your office or store. Prepare your staff. Identify those who are core to you operation and keep a list of their phone numbers (home, work, pager, cell) and e-mail addresses that all employees can access from home, the Internet, etc. Communicate, communicate, communicate. Devise an emergency plan that outlines how your business will communicate with employees, customers, vendors and other key external contacts in the days following a disaster. Contact vendors and suppliers to confirm their emergency response plan procedures. Be prepared to use alternate vendors for essential supplies and equipment. Keep your back-up equipment in good working condition. Have an up-to-date inventory of your assets. Review your insurance policies to ensure that you have adequate coverage for items you cannot afford to lose. A standard policy might not cover business interruption losses. Store your documents safely and efficiently. Keep duplicates of personnel, payroll, payables and receivables and other essential records at an off-site location. Regularly make back-up copies. Establish a succession of management for the company. Determine who will manage the company if key leaders are unavailable.

Whats a good number? Should I sell the low-yield ones and buy more of the high-yield ones? M.E., Vail, Colo..AIt may seem that the higher the yield, the better, as it means youll collect more money from your investment. But companies with low or no dividend payments can also be terrific holdings. They may have more pressing uses for their excess cash than paying it out to shareholders. For example, if they plow it back into the company to help it grow, shareholders can also benefit. Meanwhile, among firms that do pay dividends, check out just how quickly that dividend has been growing. A 1 percent yield can be more attractive than a 2 percent one if the company has hiked its dividend by an annual average of 15 percent in recent years. If so, you might expect that dividend to quadruple over a decade, while the latter one, if it grows at just 4 percent on average, may not even double. Consider that while both Home Depot and Aflac recently had yields of 2.7 percent, Home Depots five-year average dividend growth rate is 5 percent, and Aflacs is 12 percent.

J.G., Mankato, Minn.The Fool Responds: Citigroups stock price did plunge below a dollar, but with its gobs of assets and money-making businesses, it was never a classic penny stock. The typical penny stock is tied to a risky and unproven company, and its stock price is easily manipulated by hypesters who promise fast, huge gains. Its usually best to avoid any stock trading for less than $5 per share. You also made a big mistake by putting many of your eggs in that one pennystock basket. Diversification can spread out risks.

BEFORE AFTER Love Your Kitchen Again! NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2012 BUSINESS B7 Gag grouper season has been closed in the Gulf of Mexico FWC-managed state waters, which extend nine nautical miles from the shoreline, since Nov. 16, 2011. Prior to 2011, recreational anglers could fish for gag in January, April and May and from mid-September to midNovember. The federal season allowed just two open season months. The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council, which manages gulf waters beyond the states nine miles, along with other federal conservation agencies approved long-term management measures for gag grouper in August 2011 after determining that populations were not sustainable due to commercial and recreational harvests as well as weather and environmental factors like red tide. More than 90 percent of all recreationally harvested gulf gag is caught off of Floridas coast. Annual commercial and recreational catch limits, which are set by federal fishery managers using FWC data, will allow commercial fisherman to harvest 788,000 pounds of gag grouper this year. Recreational anglers, statewide are permitted up to 1.23 million pounds and allowed just two gags per person. Perhaps a silver lining: The annual catch limit rises for both commercially and recreationally caught gag through 2015 a provision thats always subject to change. The constant flux in open season for certain fish keeps charter captains on their toes. Capt. Tony Fontana, who runs Capt. Tony Fontana Charters in Naples, says he wont brush up on the new gag grouper regulations until open season approaches. Its always up in the air, he says. You think its out until March 31, then they come out with a new regulation. I do have people who want to catch grouper. Most of my business is this time of year and fortunately there are plenty of other edible fish that can be caught. Local captains are questioning the timing of the season and what appears as favoritism for four Florida counties. There was really no thought put into the timing of the season, says Mr. McLaughlin, who operates Another Keeper Charters. Gag grouper congregates in shallower gulf waters during the winter. They gave us the longest season possible but put it at the worst time. Amanda Nalley, a spokesperson for FWCs division of Marine Fisheries Management, says the commission considered several possible seasons, weighed input from interests throughout the state and ultimately opted for the proposal that gave recreational gag anglers the longest season, a 123-day window. Southwest Florida anglers advocated a 76-day split season from Dec. 24 to Jan. 31 and June 1 through July 7. Mr. McLaughlin calculates that busy charter companies in the Big Bend area have the potential to harvest 3,600 pounds of gag grouper per boat during open season possibly significantly reducing the per-pound allotment for the rest of Florida. The effort to catch gag grouper in those four counties is going to skyrocket because youre going to see trailered boats from neighboring counties, he says. It takes away from everybody elses fishing, and could end up shortening our season. Its purely a political move. No one trusts the national marine fisheries, and a small portion trusted FWC, he adds. This basically sets them back. The executive order providing the earlier open season in the Big Bend was approved by the seven-member commission, and will take effect once the FWCs consent measure has been published and passed likely within the next month and before the four-county gag season opens April 1. It comes down to fishing pressure, says Ms. Nalley. The commission felt the fishing pressure is significantly less in those counties than elsewhere in the gulf. Should it prove otherwise, the FWC could consider several alternate measures from closing the gag season for the rest of the year or adopting a different season, says Ms. Nalley. Its really one of those unknowns. Typical of any new fishing regulations is the commercial-vs.-recreational debate, and in the case of the gag grouper local captains arent happy with the new provision reducing commercially caught fish to 22 inches, the same as recreational anglers are allowed. Recreational fishing regulations get tighter and tighter while size limits creep down for the commercial guys, says Mr. Fontana. Thats whats really chewing at me. It sounds at first like it favors commercial fishing, says Ms. Nalley, noting the move was adopted to reduce the mortality rate of commercially caught gag grouper thrown back into the gulf. Commercial companies operate under predetermined quotas that dictate how many annual pounds of a certain fish they can harvest. They can fish throughout the year until meeting that threshold. Fishermen tend to be a skeptical bunch and many are questioning population counts that put the gag grouper at risk. Everyone says there isnt any gag grouper and Im catching more now they I have ever caught, says Scott Fish Fischer, a Pine Island commercial angler. I dont know where their data comes from. Ive been doing this 30 years and the last five to six years, gags have been plentiful. In my eyes, gag grouper is not the easiest fish in the world to locate or catch, says Mr. Fontana. On the plus side, the fishing has become very good for gag grouper. Theres a lot of bigger fish out there. Five years ago, you were lucky to get three or four keepers in a trip. Now were getting three to four keepers in one spot.The gag, marketed commercially as black grouper, is a species many say is meatier and better tasting than the traditional red grouper served in restaurants. Finer restaurants pay a premium for gag, which because of its habitat is less susceptible to parasites than red grouper, according to Pat Kirk, co-owner of Capt. Kirks, a fresh fish market in Naples.I have some gag grouper in the case right now; I just got finished filleting them, she says. Brian Urso, co-owner of Andys Island Seafood Co. on Matlacha, says gag grouper has a sweeter meet and a different flavor than red grouper. Its a higher quality fish, he says. I sell 100 pounds every 1 to two days. Mr. Ursos gag retails for $19.99 a dollar more than red grouper. Mrs. Kirk, a captain and scuba diver, says gag grouper are smarter and harder to locate than red grouper. Its also a fighter, making it popular with sports fishermen. Whats nice about grouper and gag in particular is its a phenomenal fish with a lot of meat, says Mr. Fontana. The average keeper has about six pounds. Mr. McLaughlin doesnt bother fishing commercially for gag grouper. Under the quota system, buying rights to harvest it would cost $2.25 to $3 a pound with limited profitability after fuel and crew costs are deducted from the $5 wholesale price. Instead, he specializes in grouper and red snapper, which he sells directly to restaurants. I make more money selling red grouper. GROUPERFrom page 1Everyone says there isnt any gag grouper, and Im catching more now then I have ever caught. Scott Fish Fischer, commercial fisherman Fishing for dollarsRecreational saltwater shing is big business in Florida, generating an estimated $3.3 billion in retail sales between Jan. 1 through July 2011 and producing an economic impact of nearly $5.7 billion. The economic impact of the states seafood industry in 2008, the most current data available, was more than $5.6 million, of which $171 million was linked to commercial harvest sales. Comparatively speaking, gag grouper hasnt been a big boon for local commercial shermen, according to FWC data, which also shows a steady decline in the poundage landed in each of the three counties. Lee County reported 3,071 pounds during last years season and 21,131 pounds in 2010. In 2009, commercial operations in the county landed 17,290 pounds. Before new guidelines created quotas for commercial sherman, Lee County produced more than 77,000 pounds of gag grouper in 1990. In Collier County, commercial sherman caught 780 pounds of the grouper, compared to 6,788 pounds the previous year. There were no commercially caught gag in Charlotte County in 2009 or 2011; 852 pounds were reported there in 2010.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB28 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2012 In 2006, a Florida developer set out to create a luxurious residential enclave in a prime Naples location. No expense was spared for the project called Tuscany Reserve, with hundreds of millions invested in infrastructure, including a golf course created in a collaboration between Pete Dye and Greg Norman. Kitson & Partners acquired the trophy project last February and recently announced its renaming, to Talis Park. Talis Park is a contemporary interpretation of the good life, which is less about grandeur and formality and more about a relaxed lifestyle that speaks to young-minded, socially active and health-conscious vacation homebuyers, while remaining true to Naples elegant and upscale way of life, says company Chairman and CEO Syd Kitson. Over the past 18 years, the Palm Beach Gardens-based company has developed and managed several largescale, master-planned communities in Florida and the northeast and is one of the largest landowners in the Sunshine State. In Talis Park, three new neighborhoods will offer a network of meandering trails and pathways leading to the village center. Three different home collections will reflect the new spirit of the community, with free-flowing indoor/outdoor living spaces and prices ranging from $700,000 to $2 millionplus. Envisioned as a community gathering place, the new Vyne House is a multi-purpose village center with indoor and outdoor spaces. It houses the golf club and pool, a spa, racquet club, fitness center and an ice cream shop and caf. The adjacent Great Lawn provides a setting for events from wine festivals to concerts and movie screenings. Talis Park is extremely well positioned to benefit from the recovering market, growing demand and the changes in buyers sentiment, Mr. Kitson says. There is a renewed focus on value, and Im confident that the smart money will recognize the rare timing to purchase a home with an excellent Naples address where the considerable infrastructure costs have already been absorbed and buyers become the beneficiaries. The entrance to Talis Park is at 16990 Livingston Road. For more information, call 261-6798 or visit www.talispark.com. On five consecutive Sundays beginning Mar ch 4, the public is in vited behind the gates of Mediterra for a model home showcase featuring original artwork from Clyde Butcher Photography, The Sultan Gallery, The Sweet Art Gallery and Sheldon Fine Art. The event benefits the Golisano Childrens Museum of Naples. Hours are from noon to 5 p.m. on March 4, 11, 18, 25 and April 1. Nine model homes in neighborhoods throughout Mediterra are on the showcase tour, including three new homes by London Bay Homes and one new home by Stock Construction. Other models on the tour are by Harbourside Custom Homes and Kingon Homes. For more information, call 719-1032 or visit www.ModelShowcaseEvent. com. Watching sunsets over the Gulf of M e xico and dining at the beach is a lighter and brighter experience for members and guests of the Mediterra beach club since a recent remodeling project. The beach club is owned by the membership of The Club at Mediterra. On Bonita Beach, seven miles from the Mediterra community, the beach club opened in 2003 with a distinctly Tuscan feel. Dark woods, walls and fabrics adorned the indoor and al fresco dining areas situated beside an elevated swimming pool and expansive sundeck. Residents decided it was time for a facelift. We wanted a fresh, new design, says Mediterra resident Robyn Wilson, a member of the remodeling subcommittee. Working with a top national design firm, we chose colors reminiscent of sand and water and the feel of South Beach casual elegance. Large-screen TVs lend a sporty feel to the bar, which also serves as a wine bar overseen by Mediterras two sommeliers. Dining options also changed with dcor and the recent hiring of Carmen Mauceri as director of clubhouse operations. The Club at Mediterra also includes two Tom Fazio-designed championship golf courses, a 25,000-square-foot clubhouse, a sports club with tennis courts, outdoor pool, spa rooms and fitness center.

C41-43, 45 Peg Goldberg Longstreth had a passion for music and art and wrote about them both with a keen eye. She had strong opinions, both on and off the page. A classically trained pianist, she knew what to listen for when reviewing concerts. And she spent hours researching each concerts selections and composers beforehand. She and her late husband, Joseph Longstreth, wrote classical music reviews for the Naples Daily News. When Joseph, her soulmate, died in 2003, she continued, writing the reviews by herself. I met them both in 2001, when they opened the gallery Longstreth Goldberg Art on Taylor Road in North Naples. A large, contemporary gallery, it seemed as if it belonged more in a small city than in Naples. When I started writing for Florida Weekly, I told my editors about Peg, and she began writing reviews and features for us. According to a feature story in Fort Myers magazine by Phil Jason Peg Goldberg LongstrethJan. 16, 1939 Feb. 17, 2012 SEE PEG, C16 BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com SUPERMAN MIGHT HAVE BEEN BORN ON the planet Krypton, but if you ask Susan Bridges, he was created out of desperation and hope. In the s and s, cultures around the world were looking for heroes, because of what was going on politically, she says, referring to the Great Depression and World War II. Some people felt there wasnt enough help for them, that it would take something amazing to help us solve these kinds of issues.SEE COMIC BOOKS, C4 BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com Superheroes turn up at Bonitas Center for the Arts LONGSTRETH
The witty Mindy Kaling of Kelly Kapoor fame in The Office has a new book. In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? she offers insights and experiences in her signature quirky, funny style. In a plug for the book, Ms. Kaling recently wrote an article for Glamour magazine where she reveals an important realization shes had about dating.Until I was 30, I dated only boys, Ms. Kaling writes in the article. Ill tell you why: Men scared the sh*t out of me. What does a real man look like, according to Ms. Kaling? Men own alarm clocks. Men sleep on a mattress that isnt on the floor. Men buy shampoo instead of adding water to a nearly empty bottle of shampoo. Men make reservations. Men go in for a kiss without giving you some long preamble about how theyre thinking of kissing you. Men wear clothes that have never been worn by anyone else. I had to stop reading for a second and put the magazine in my lap. My feet were soaking in the tub at the nail salon, and I leaned my head back against the rubber pillow of the pedicure chair. Yes, I thought, woozy with the sudden insight. Thats exactly it. That IS what men do. And why have I wasted so much time chasing boys? Ms. Kaling says men arent afraid of commitment. Im not talking about commitment to romantic relationships, she writes. Im talking about commitment to THINGS houses, jobs, neighborhoods. Paying a mortgage. This commitment to a settled life, she says, carries over to romance. Which makes perfect sense. A man who can commit to a 12-month lease can commit to a relationship; maybe it really is that simple. Some of the men Ive liked didnt even have their own places they lived in a state of permanent crashing on friends couches. How could I think theyd ever come around to the grown-up life I wanted? I left the salon with a glossy mani-pedi and a new perspective on love. There it was, my revolutionary idea on romance: If we stick to the men with real estate and furniture, framed prints on the walls and table service for four, then maybe well have better luck. Perhaps those are the men who mean business. But just as I was figuring this out, I noticed a perplexing trend. The men who fit this type, the ones who own homes and have steady jobs, seem to be trying to divest themselves of responsibility. My friend Jeremy talks all the time about quitting his big-money corporate lawyer job, and not so coincidentally, I think just broke up with his live-in girlfriend of three years. Then theres Greg, who left his steady teaching gig to go to grad school and whose house is now in foreclosure. And Jordan, who has worked since he was 16 and owned his own home by the time he was 25, but is ready to throw it all in and live on a boat. Boyish behavior if Ive ever seen it. The problem, Im realizing, isnt in finding men to date. Its that all men secretly want to be boys. And thats a dilemma even Mindy Kaling cant fix.

Even from a young age, he considered himself an artist, he says, adding that he was about 3 years old the first time he picked up a pencil. He describes his art as both realism and representation and uses a variety of mediums ranging from pencil and ink to acrylics and pastels. Although he has explored painting, illustrating and cartooning, now he focuses on creating fine art. Mr. Platts art education and exposure is diverse. He has studied art at Pratt Institute, East Carolina University and State University of New York. His work has been shown in numerous exhibitions and gallery displays in the Naples and Marco Island area, including at The von Liebig Art Center, Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, the Art League of Marco Island and the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. He has had solo exhibitions at the Koucky Gallery and the Museum of the Everglades, among others; and his illustrations have been published by Gulfshore Life, Sunlighting and Naples Illustrated magazines as well as by the Naples Daily News. He designed a piece for the Gators Galore project 10 years ago, and his work belongs in the art collections of Northern Trust Bank of Florida, The Ritz-Carlton, Naples and the Collier Audubon Society, to name a few. His website, wwwsamplattfineart. com, is filled with examples of his creations, and he also shows his work by appointment to interested collectors. When hes not working on a new piece, he enjoys a good book. I read a lot, he says, adding his genre of preference, crime novels, makes sense considering his background as an investigator in New York. Hes currently reading The Triple Agent by Robert Baer. Mr. Platt also works as an instructor at The von Liebig Art Center. Its a lot of fun, he says about teaching beginning and advanced drawing and landscape painting. He also teaches private lessons. The most rewarding thing is when you see a breakthrough in students, when they create something on their own, he says, adding he hopes his students appreciate his approach, one of quiet guidance and attentiveness to detail. He attributes much of his art to his surroundings. He discovered beautiful landscapes and interesting features in New Mexico, where he and his wife travel whenever they have an opportunity. Naples has also inspired much of his work, he says. I love Naples because I love to sketch outdoors. I particularly like to sketch people in different places. I do a lot of cartoon-drawing just sitting outside and watching people. Artists Among Us is provided by The Naples Art Association at The von Liebig Art Center. The mission of the Naples Art Association is to promote and advance education, interest and participation in the contemporary visual arts.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2012 So a group of artists gave the world something better than heroes: superheroes Superman, Batman and Robin, Captain Marvel, Wonder Woman and Captain America, among them beings who were capable of feats mere humans could only dream about accomplishing. Superman, for instance, has superhuman strength. He can fly, smash through brick walls, see through solid objects with his x-ray vision and melt anything with his laser-shooting eyes. The superheroes would help us through, Ms. Bridges says, adding their creators made one after another, spun this into whole genres of artwork, comic books, stories and films. It started us on the track where we are today. Ms. Bridges is president of the Center for the Arts in Bonita Springs, which plays host to a group of superheroes March 2-April 28 with ZAP! POW! BAM! The Superhero: The Golden Age of Comic Books, 1938-1950, an exhibit of vintage artwork, books, rare early comic books, original art and artifacts on loan from the creators and publishers of superhero comic books, as well as from individual and institutional collectors. The show is important, Ms. Bridges says, because we dont often realize there was a time before superheroes existed. And though we might be able to recite where they came from or how they obtained their special powers, we often dont know how they came to the page. This is the original, seminal spark and idea that put us on the track of superheroes and comics the idea that there would be people or beings out there that might help us out of our dilemmas, she says. ZAP! POW! BAM! originated at the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum in Atlanta and has been on tour for eight years, including a stop at the Jewish Museum of Florida in Miami. That is began at the Breman is no surprise, as the originators of superheroes were all young Jewish men. And as JewishJournal.com points out, Supermans origins are similar to those of Moses: Superman was sent to Earth as an infant in a small rocket, while the infant Moses was cast off into Nile River in a cradle made of bulrushes. And, like Sampson, Superman possesses a secret vulnerability. Comic book illustrator Jerry Robinson, who joined the cartooning staff of Batman as a teenager, was a guest curator for the exhibit. According to the Center for the Arts, Mr. Robinson, working with Batman co-creators Bob Kane and Bill Finger, named Robin, Batmans sidekick. He also co-created The Joker, one of the first super-villains. According to the Center, his experience and personal contacts presented the Breman with extraordinary access to original comic book materials, artists and collectors. (Mr. Robinson died in December 2011 at the age of 89.)Holy cow! Theres more! One of the pieces on exhibit is the original artwork for the iconic Superman #14 cover, which shows Superman with his right fist on his hip and an eagle on his left bicep. Behind him: a shield with stars and stripes on it. The exhibit also has an installation of an artists studio, complete with a heavy, black manual typewriter and the drawing board on which the original Superman was created. Its very different than today, where everything is done on computer, Ms. Bridges says. Back then, you drew things. You did story boards. Another installation has a sample of kryptonite, which glows. ZAP! POW! BAM! also has a full-sized replica of an old-fashioned newsstand, with broadsheets boasting headlines about the superheroes exploits and comic books that exhibit visitors can pick up and read. Young exhibit visitors can choose a comic book to take home, and can step into a phone booth to don a superhero costume while at the exhibit. And everyone who comes to the center can watch some original films of Superman, Captain America and other superheroes. A lot of kids today have not seen these films, Ms. Bridges says. They might seem rudimentary to them, but to a child then (when they first came out), it was amazing stuff. From 1-3 p.m. on Saturdays, special activities for children and families will vary from cartoon drawing to sculpting miniature superheroes to fight todays problems.Zowie! An American art form!The original superhero comics are a pure art form. The whole idea of how to write that superhero comic, position it, lay it out, was something that these guys worked on as designers, as illustrators, Ms. Bridges says. (By viewing their work), you get to understand and appreciate how they would have to write the frames and the storyboards to make sure the image was powerful and sent a message. You had all these marks (when they were) hitting a bad guy points and lines, the body language, all of that. These guys had to come up with the ways to impart that. They had to understand the concept of illustration and the bare bones of putting together a message that would be universally understood within seconds. That was pretty amazing stuff. Its a whole design genre and art genre that we see today. They had an idea and moved that forward, and we watched as it evolved. The superhero artists, Ms. Bridges adds, came up with something that has lived through all these years. The superheroes might have changed and been tweaked over the years, she says but, It really is an art form that has evolved and that continues on today. And no only that, the art form is highly entertaining bright, colorful and uplifting.They colored our world !Theres been a buzz of excitement about the exhibit, Ms. Bridges says, since even before the staff uncrated the first piece. Groups and organizations from around the state have inquired about visiting, and collectors are calling to offer their expertise. Its really exciting. There are a lot of people who look at this as: This is a part of my history, my world, my culture. COMIC BOOKSFrom page 1 ZAP! POW!

THEATER REVIEWMore teeth, less politeness for a more accurate Tru nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com God broke the mold when She made Truman Capote. Heartbreakingly pretty as a boy and young man, he was an odd creature in his later years, this diminutive man with the highpitched, nasally voice who battled drug and alcohol addiction as well as bouts of depression. Known for writing Breakfast at Tiffanys and the groundbreaking In Cold Blood, he struggled with writing Answered Prayers for 20 years. When we meet Truman Capote in Florida Repertory Theatres one-man show, Tru, its 1975 and Esquire magazine has just printed a chapter from the novel-still-in-progress, Answered Prayers. Though he has somewhat disguised them, hes revealed the private lives of the wealthy socialites with whom he has mingled or so many years. In response, theyve all shunned him or, as he puts it, At this particular moment in my life I stand accused of obscene treachery and betrayal. The book, he says, is about the sexual license and ethical squalor of the super-rich, as seen through the eyes of an outsider namely himself, the ultimate outsider. Now its Christmastime, and he is alone. The women thought he was their friend, but all along, Mr. Capote was taking mental notes. He thrived on others scandals and was always on the prowl for fresh gossip. (As he says on the phone to a friend, early in the play, I need a little dirt fix. What is everybody up to?) Those who cozy up to artists do so at their own risk, he says. Florida Rep regular Mark Chambers portrays Mr. Capote with glee, under the direction of Jason Parrish, also a familiar face on the Florida Rep stage. Though Tru has its moments, especially in Act II, the play doesnt quite gel. It hints that it could be much more than it is, but it achieves neither the heights nor the depths that would make is a knock-out production. Its like the set of Mr. Capotes East Side apartment in the U.N. Plaza: Set designer Christopher T. Simson has filled it with knick-knacks (paperweights, a purple Buddha, a Venus de Milo statue, a risqu sculpture). And yes, there are feathers and candles and pillows and some interesting items here and there, but it just looks cluttered and dull. Its certainly not fabulousness upon fabulousness. (The only outstanding piece is the pale green velvet Victorian couch thats the centerpiece of the stage.) The evening does contain some witty lines and funny anecdotes. (My favorites included a story about the Queen Mum and another about Mr. Capote being locked out of his apartment. I wont ruin them by giving away the punch lines.) And Mr. Chambers is funny when dancing a samba to The Boy From Ipanema, twirling two tasseled Christmas ornaments in front of his chest like a striptease artist.Theres also some nice staging, such as when he plays with the long cord of the telephone. Mr. Chambers has some of the classic Capote gestures down cold taking his glasses off or pushing them on top of his head, rubbing his eyes. And there are times when he looks eerily just like Mr. Capote, though those moments dont carry consistently throughout the play. And while he can rely on his native Southern accent to draw out Mr. Capotes (who was born and raised in Louisiana), he doesnt speak with Mr. Capotes signature highpitch or cadences. He also, with a few exceptions, lacks Mr. Capotes sense of flamboyance. I left the theater not quite feeling as if Id just spent two hours with Mr. Capote. Stronger direction might have helped. Part of the problem, too, could be Jay Presson Allens 1989 script. (The program notes that she patched together the monologue from the words and works of Truman Capote.)

Naples Masters BayFest brings dozens of artists to BayfrontAward-winning wildlife artists is among exhibitors The first Naples Masters BayFest art festival takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, March 3-4, at Bayfront. Booths with works by 75 national artists will be nestled among the restaurants and shops at Bayfront. Among the participants is award-winning wildlife artist Nancy Strailey of Columbia, S.C., who uses colored pencils on hand-made papers from around the world to create her evocative drawings of elephants, giraffes, lions, leopards, zebras and other African wildlife. Ms. Strailey has made nine trips to Africa to study animals, and she also studies them in sanctuaries closer to home. Africa is one of the few places left on earth where I can still see wildlife interacting in a complete ecosystem as they were intended to, she explains of her journeys halfway around the world. I want to understand how every weed and insect, even the soil itself, has a role to play in the greater web of life and to honor some of that in my artwork. She recalls watching a herd of 150 elephants crossing the nearly dry Linyanti River from the Caprivi Strip of Namibia to the sanctuary of the reserve on the Botswana side. Despite her tour groups desire to observe but not engage, the matriarch and others charged. Ms. Strailey recalls watching anxiously, the massive elephants bellowing, throwing clouts of dirt and raising great clouds of dust.While not all of her trips have been that eventful, she happily reports seeing not only the big five but also the small five: elephant shrew, leopard tortoise, ant lion, buffalo weaver and rhinoceros beetle. Using these adventures as inspiration, she designs each of her drawings in a series of planning sketches, which are then combined on the exotic paper the artist feels most suitable. Next, she carefully overlays light layers of colored pencil to achieve the visual richness that is the hallmark of her work. Ms. Strailey uses handmade papers that are not bleached, dyed, buffered or sized. They are made by indigenous people in poor remote corners of the world. She previously used dung-based papers from Kenya but now supports a project in South Africa that empowers women by employing them to make the paper and then marketing it for them. Her goal is to have the papers play a role in the finished drawing in terms of line, texture and color as it becomes an integral part of the piece, not just a surface the drawing sits on. The artists self-published book, An Artists Odyssey in Africa, will be available at the festival and is sold online at www. nancystrailey.com. Organized by habitat, the book features her art and words about life in each region and her understanding of the interconnectedness of it all, tied to what she considers the sacred nature of her role in the age-old tradition of animal image making. She is now working on a book about giraffes. Visitors to the inaugural Naples Masters BayFest will be able to enjoy free boat tours around Naples Bay and free Segway rides provided by Extreme Boat Rentals. Food vendors will include Chrissys at Bayfront and ice cream from M&Ms Caf. Admission is free, but donations will be accepted for First Book-Collier County, which provides free books to at-risk children. For more information, call 293-9448 or visit www. boulderbrook.net.

YesAct Of Valor is unique in that the filmmakers worried so much about getting things right and making it authentic that they forgot to tell a solid story. The reasons for wanting things right are obvious: Directors Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh convinced eight active duty Navy Seals to be in the film, with the overall idea being to show civilians the ins and outs of real Seals on a (fake) mission. Cool stuff indeed. Unfortunately, the story is scattershot. The basics, however, are easy: The Seals are tasked with rescuing a CIA agent (Roselyn Sanchez) whos been kidnapped, and the extraction, as its called, is full of great tension and action. Things get more complicated, however, when team leaders learn a terrorist named Christo (Alex Veadov) is plotting to smuggle conspirators into the U.S. to attack major cities. The directors original intention was to make a war movie with actors playing the Seals. But with real Seals on set as consultants reportedly getting upset by the lack of realism from the actors, the directors decided to have the Seals play versions of themselves in the fictitious story. Thankfully, McCoy and Waugh also had unprecedented access into Navy Seal equipment and protocols, and they smartly captured a lot of the action with intense close-ups and first-person point-of-view shots that put the viewer right in the moment. Live ammo was also used, we learn in the directors prologue, which means everyone had to especially be on their toes during action scenes. The good that comes from this realistic fiction is that the war scenes, terminology, strategies, etc., all look and feel a bit different and more realistic than what were used to, and this is always fascinating. The bad that comes from this is that you have non-professional actors having to deliver dramatic lines, and in that the Seals struggle. No surprise there, but even though you cant knock the Seals for not being great actors, their wooden, often monotone delivery does hinder the films dramatic impact. Whats more, writer Kurt Johnstads script doesnt always make it clear how information is received and transmitted, what all the code words mean and what the exact plans are moving forward. We always know who the bad guys are, but the details are a bit too muddled for their own good. Critics of the film are calling it a glamorization of Seal life that plays like a long recruitment video. Although that criticism is not without merit, its also legitimate to say we respect the men who are willing to fight for our freedom and were glad these guys are on our side. Their acting might not be great, but the Navy Seals are damn good at what theyre supposed to be damn good at. Thank goodness. This Means War (Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy, Chris Pine) Two CIA operatives (Hardy and Pine) compete for the same woman (Witherspoon) in this lighthearted action-comedy. As long as you dont take it seriously, its good clean fun. Rated PG-13.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. Little does he know her house is haunted. Radcliffe is impressive in his first big non-Harry Potter role, and there are some quality scares along the way. Rated PG-13.

She performed in a dance band and as a duo piano partner. In 1980, she became a private art dealer. Peg was a co-worker who became a friend. I felt we complemented each other well, writing about the arts; we were each strong in areas where the other lacked expertise. I admired her knowledge about classical music, pops and opera. We had great discussions about art and music and cats. Peg was a great lover of cats, and shared her home with her many furry children. She also fed numerous outdoor cats who knew her as a reliable human with a kind heart. Like many in the arts community, I was shocked by her death at age 73. Wed just had dinner a few weeks ago, in January. She looked great. Despite having sold her gallery in November, she had a great zest. Ironically, the day I learned of her death, Id just adopted a cat at the humane society. I was going to call and tell her about it. I knew shed be happy about the news. Her sudden death, and the lack of a funeral or memorial service, have left us all feeling dismayed and somewhat lost. To celebrate her life, Peg would most likely want us to attend a concert and listen to good music, support the arts (especially young musicians and artists) and, if possible, open our homes and adopt a cat. Or two. Or more. Heres what a few other people in the local arts community had to say about Peg: Francis Wada, musical directorThe Charlotte Symphony OrchestraIve been having a tough time since I heard the sad news about Peg. She wasnt just a reviewer; she had a heart for what we did, how we did it and how the community rose to love our symphony. She was more than just a typical concert reviewer who talks about technical musical aspects. She always pictured how the audience responded. And she loved our enthusiastic audience here. She highlighted that part how the audience responded to the music we presented. I feel we have lost a good friend of the symphony as well as a good friend to me as a person. I was so fortunate we visited her beautiful gallery. Ill never forget that. She promoted creativeness few people are doing that. Im extremely saddened. I talked to her just a few days before our Mantovani concert; she wanted some more details about it. She wrote an incredible review, probably the finest review Ive ever received in my life. She spoke so highly of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra. What a loss. So few people can do what she did. Its hard to find someone with a classical music background like that. Im forever grateful that we had her. We lost a dear friend. (When she wrote), she captured the total experience of listening to live music. Other critiques can be dry. But her experience brought joy. Myra Janco Daniels, founder, former CEO and presidentThe Philharmonic Center for the ArtsPeg was a Renaissance woman who knew how to mix the visual and the performing arts together. I dont know any other woman who had a dabbling in all these different areas. She was not afraid to dabble. She spoke with a strong voice and she was not bendable. And she never stopped learning.Jeannette Boucher, presidentThe Naples Music ClubI began to get to know Peg recently. She was an amazing woman. She had so many interests and pursuits. I saw her at Thanksgiving, and she wanted to know if I knew any recorder players. She said shed like to start a group of recorder players. She said she never played it. She wanted to join a group in town, or, if there wasnt one, she wanted to start one. She was very enthusiastic about it. Even being recently retired, basically, her mind never stopped going. She loved new things and she loved music. She was always full of new ideas and doing things shed never done before. Phil Jason, presidentThe Naples Press ClubWhat I admired about Peg Longstreth was her versatility, her commitment to a whole range of the arts, as a practitioner, an educator and a critic. She took chances in all of these areas, and some of those chances did not win her friends. I think her heart was always in the right place. And thats something. She had a great enthusiasm for bringing artistic talent to the public. Myra Williams, treasurerThe Naples Music ClubPeg was a remarkable woman. Her talents were so varied. She was a musician; she performed and also reviewed music, and she still practiced the piano every day. She was a gallery owner, respected by her artists for her sense of fine art. When she wanted to become an author and had trouble getting a publisher for her book, A Bear Called Charlie, she wound up self-publishing it. She was going to write a sequel. She said she had to listen to him to find out what to write. Peg was simply a woman who had intelligence and a great exuberance about life. One of the things most special about her was her remarkable resilience. You just couldnt put her down. She was a vital part of this community, giving and supportive. PEGFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTO

Grand Central Publishing. 448 pages. $25.99 This amazing novel by prolific Florida State University creative writing professor Julianna Baggot is stunning in its vision, specificity and suggestiveness. Configuring a post-apocalyptic world of the near future, the author achieves nothing less than a profound inquiry into the nature and meaning of what it is to be human. Likely to become an instant classic, Pure is at once science fiction, moral fable and coming-of-age tale. The prose is gorgeous; the scale is cinematically epic. When I finished reading it, I was sorry it was over. Fortunately, there are two more installments of The Pure Trilogy to come. The Pure are those who were chosen to live in the Dome in order to survive the detonations that destroyed much and created a wasteland for the survivors kept outside. The detonations seem to have been a programmed destruction predicated on future renewal and rebuilding like burning a forest to make way for new growth. Who chose the elite to be saved and educated as the leaders of a new order? Where was the line between altruistic tough love and simple, naked self-interest? Pure explores such issues with deep sensitivity and intelligence. The story is structured around the actions of and relationships among four young adults. The Pures are Partridge (son of the Domes leader) and Lyda, teenagers who are being groomed to take over leadership roles in the reintegrated world society though Partridge has yet to prove himself, and Lyda has been institutionalized as unstable (perhaps not yet effectively programmed or coded). Partridge, who has begun to doubt the history he has been taught, manages an escape to discover what really goes on outside the Dome. Lyda, wrongly believed to be his girlfriend, is sent out to lure him back. Those who live outside the Dome include Pressia and Bradwell. They are both, like the other Wretches, physical victims of the detonations that disfigured everyone not only with burn scars, missing limbs and other bodily distortions, but also by having been welded into nonhuman beings and materials. Pressias damaged hand is fused with the face of a doll; her grandfather has a small electric fan lodged in this throat. Bradwells back is inhabited by birds whose wings rustle constantly. These people constitute the highest order of life outside the Dome, above the Beasts and the Dusts. Bradwell, like Partridge, is a rebel and a truth seeker. Eventually, fate (or is it complex external manipulation of their lives?) brings the four young people together. The future for everyone seems to be in the hands of this inexperienced and untested quartet. However, they meet some early tests quite well. The governing power outside of the Dome is the OSR, originally shorthand for Operation Search and Rescue, now morphed into the more problematic Operation Sacred Revolution. Its agents are everywhere. The Before is the pre-detonations past. Ms. Baggotts characters fight to remember their early childhood experiences, but their memories are faded and fragile. The fight to avoid being severed from the past is part of the fight to discover the truths of recent history that Bradwell and Partridge are diligently seeking. Without this knowledge, their attempts to move forward purposefully and productively are handicapped. Their identities, too, are compromised, as their traits are being engineered by coding but to what and whose end? There is an official line of understanding about past, present and future spun out of the Dome that needs to be challenged. All of these thematic issues, as well as those involving nurturing, building personal trust and building community, are most artfully managed through the authors plot lines and characterizations. Pure is a profound artwork of sturdy construction enhanced by an exquisite filigree of setting and sensory detail. Its a great read provocative, illuminating and shimmering with brilliant imagery and lyrical prose. Ms. Baggotts novel is especially recommended for older teens, whose hopes and struggles it captures magnificently. a f t L t r P philJASON firstname.lastname@example.org A brilliant, post-apocalyptic gem from Julianna Baggott COURTESY PHOTOJulianna Baggott Families can celebrate Cat and Crow: An Amazing Friendship with cookies, face painting, origami bookmarks, coloring pages, balloons, raffles and more at a free book party from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, March 3, at Barnes & Noble in Coconut Point.

The story follows the saga of the March sisters Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy growing up in Civil War America. With a book by Allan Knee, music by Jason Howland and lyrics by Mindi Dickstein, the musical promises to charm young and old alike. The cast is led by Tony-awarding winning singer/dancer/actress Donna McKenchie as Mrs. March, known to her daughters as Marmee and admired for her generous demeanor and lovely voice. Megan Yelaney plays the high-spirited, ambitious Jo; Molly Ann Ross is full of charm as Amy, who longs for the pretty things that her family lacks; Megan Jimenez warms the stage as Meg, the eldest sister; and Julie Woods-Robinson endows fragile Beth with enough strength to carve out a special niche in the family. The actresses bring such understanding to their roles, you cant help wondering if they, like countless American women, loved the book when they were girls, says Mark Danni, founder of TheatreZone and the director of Little Women. The sisters Five Forever and Ms. Yelaneys Astonishing are among favorite musical moments, along with Ms. McKechnies Days of Plenty. When Donna sings Days of Plenty, theres a soaring dignity and strength that resonates with the songs theme of resilience, Mr. Danni says. Tickets to Little Women are $43-$48. TheatreZones seventh season concludes with the 1920s musical farce, The Boyfriend, at the G&L Theatre May 3-13. The lineup of shows for next season will be announced on opening night of The Boyfriend. For more information or to purchase tickets, call (888) 966-3352 or visit www. theatrezone-florida.com.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC30 WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2012 BEACH READINGThe End of Money: Counterfeiters, Preachers, Techies, Dreamers and the Coming Cashless Society by David Wolman (Da Capo, $25)REVIEWED BY LARRY COXOur society has come a long way since Marco Polo became intrigued by the paper notes he saw circulating in China more than 700 years ago. From the gold standard to the ascent of national currencies and finally to India, where there is a growing trend to abandon cash entirely, are we heading toward a time when the little numbered bits of paper and metal discs we use in our day-to-day lives becomes obsolete? Remember how unthinkable it was just a few short years ago when experts predicted that plastic cards would replace most of our cash transactions? David Wolman, a contributing editor to Wired, believes that there could be an even better way to transact in the future, something more convenient than checks, credit cards and PayPal. To see what that kind of life would be like, Mr. Wolman set out to imagine a future without cash. He began by personally eliminating cash for an entire year, but quickly discovered that his experiment wasnt as easy as he had thought. For example, simple ordinary things like buying a cup of coffee, taking care of his son and supermarket shopping became daunting challenges. When he attempted to ride a New Jersey Transit train bound for Manhattan, he found he couldnt use plastic to buy a ticket on board; scraping together 10 bucks for the babysitter also was a problem. He quickly came to the conclusion that getting rid of cash entirely is probably not possible today, but he sees it as a reality down the road. Mr. Wolman points out that the United States is lagging behind counties such as New Zealand, Canada, most of Scandinavia and others in rethinking payment technologies and alternatives. In India, many consumers already have shifted to using their cell phones as replacements for both bank branches and cash.

The earliest known sundial dates from about 800 B.C. The first pendulum clock was made in the 1600s, and pocket watches were being used by the 1700s. By the 1800s, there were mechanical clocks. Trains were the favored form of transportation, and riders had to know when the train would arrive and depart, so accurate watches were necessary and regulated time zones were put in use. It is said that people could set their clocks when they heard the nearby train whistles sound. By World War I, people were wearing wristwatches; today, many use a cellphone or computer to tell time. But all of historys time-telling methods are still in use, even the sundial. The common garden-variety sundial is an ornament that requires proper placement in the yard to tell the time. One rare sundial, the Beringer style, has five dials and five shadow casters (gnomons). It is shaped like a cube on a stand. Each side and the top have a dial and a gnomon in the proper position. Invented by David Beringer in Germany in the 1800s, it is very accurate and very complicated to install. A wooden example sold in 2011 for $350. A few are in museums. Q: I have a Podmore Walker Temple pattern flow brown platter, 13-by-10 inches. As much as Ive been able to determine, it is a Podmore, Walker & Co. original because its marked P.W. & Co. While such platters usually are flow blue, did Podmore Walker also make flow brown? Is it authentic, and what would its value be? A: Podmore, Walker & Co. was in business in Tunstall, Staffordshire, England, from 1834 to 1859. Enoch Wedgwood joined the company in about 1849 and became a partner in 1856. The company became Wedgwood & Co. in about 1860. The color of your platter may be what collectors call mulberry. Its value: about $200. Q : My husband was given a small wooden table in the 1960s. Its 30 inches square with two shelves. The label on the bottom says, A Leopold Stickley Original, L. & J.G. Stickley, Inc., Fayetteville, N.Y., Maker of Cherry Valley Furniture. A: Leopold (1869-1957) and John George (1871-1921) Stickley, two of the five Stickley brothers who entered the furniture business, established their furniture manufacturing company in Fayetteville in 1902. When interest in the Arts and Crafts style of furniture waned in the 1920s, L. & J.G. Stickley introduced a line of Colonial Revival furniture marketed as Cherry Valley. The line was produced until 1985, when the company was sold and moved to Manlius, N.Y., where it is still in business.

Make every day a special occasion! -Angelinaused from 1945 to 1985, so your table is not an early one. But pieces in the Cherry Valley line are well made and sell for about what comparable new pieces would bring. Q: Im considering selling a silver tea service to someone who buys gold and silver items. Im now wondering if the set may be worth more than meltdown value. The sugar and creamer are marked 25 Sterling on the bottom. The tray is worn and all I can make out in the first line of the mark on the bottom is rlboro Pla. Under that is, by Morton Parker, Canada, E.P. Brass, lead mounts. A: Morton Parker is a Canadian company founded in Trenton, Ontario, in 1945. It is still in business and is still run by members of the Parker family. The company makes silver-plated and stainless-steel hollowware for the retail market and the foodservice industry. The words that are partly worn off the bottom of your electroplated brass (E.P. Brass) tray indicate that its from the companys Marlboro Plate line. Places that buy silver are looking for sterling silver, not silver-plate. The standard for sterling silver is .925 silver (out of 1.000 parts). Your silver-plated tray is not worth much, but the sterling-silver hollowware pieces are worth at least meltdown value. The price of silver fluctuates, but you can check the current market price by using one of the meltdown calculators on online sites. Q: I have a clear glass bottle embossed Syrup of Black Draught and with a stopper top. I found it in a garbage dump near an old farmhouse site in northern Kentucky. The interior of the bottle is very wavy compared to the outside. I suspect it might be 60 to 100 years old. Do you know anything about this bottle? A: Dr. A.Q. Simmons invented a patent medicine in 1840 he called Thedfords Black Draught. The main ingredient was senna, a plant used as a laxative. In 1879, Z.C. Patten bought the rights to Black Draught and dropped Thedfords from the name. He founded the Chattanooga Medicine Co. to make and distribute it. Syrup of Black Draught is still being made and is now produced in syrup and tablet form by Lee Pharmaceu ticals, a personal-care products company established in California in 1971. Black Draught signs, dispensers and ephemera can be found. Dolly Parton wrote the lyrics to the Black Draught theme song, which includes the line Black Draught makes you smile from the inside out.

A special drawing & refreshments/water will be provided for Registered Participants by Lighthouse of Collier Community supporters. *To give you, our friends and neighbors, a better understanding of what it means to walk a mile in our shoes, we have vision impairment glasses available for you to wear on this walk.Lighthouse of Collier is a 501(c)3 non-pro t organization IRS ID #27-0401702 Walk A Mile In Our Shoes Assume youre in four spades and West leads a diamond. The obvious losers are three hearts and a club, so all your thoughts should be devoted to trying to escape one of them. In line with this, you begin a campaign to learn everything you can about how the unseen cards are divided. You have a good start in this direction, because it seems certain judging from the bidding and the opening lead that West didnt have a heart to lead. So East has all seven missing hearts. Upon winning the diamond jack with the king, you cash the A-Q of trumps, learning in the process that East started with a singleton trump. You then lead a low club from dummy and finesse the queen, which wins. After drawing Wests two remaining trumps, you arrive at the critical stage of the play. One possibility is to cash the ace of clubs, hoping East started with the doubleton king, in which case the king would fall under the ace. But if it turned out that East originally had three clubs, you would have to go down one on this line of play. In order to resolve the critical question of whether East started with two clubs or three, you should first lead a diamond to the ace and ruff a diamond. When East shows out on the third diamond, you learn that he started with exactly two diamonds to go with the seven hearts and one spade already known, which in turn means that he must have been dealt three clubs. Accordingly, you now put East who at this point is down to the A-K-Q of hearts and the K-10 of clubs on lead with a heart. He cashes the A-K-Q but is then forced to return a club, allowing you to score both the jack and ace, and bring a satisfying conclusion to a wellplayed hand.

Ken Ludwig's The Fox on the Fairway is a brand-new tribute to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s.

Here are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews:Agave Southwestern Grill, 2380 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples; 598-3473 A blend of Northern Mexican and American Southwestern cuisines, Executive Chef Thomas Riemans menu puts a sophisticated spin on humble, homespun food the likes of which hasnt previously been seen in Southwest Florida. Brought to us by the folks behind Angelinas Ristorante in Bonita Springs, Agave is a great concept executed with panache. The restaurant pays tribute to the agave plant with 200 varieties of tequila, which can be ordered in flights so you can compare; for those less inclined to take it straight, there are delicious fruit-and-herb-infused margaritas. Tortillas are pressed in house, and sumptuous guacamole is turned out tableside with your choice of ingredients such as roasted garlic, queso fresco and bacon. From a quickly marinated seafood ceviche to a slowly simmered poblano mole, dishes highlight flavorful ingredients and skillful cooking while never sacrificing authenticity. We only scratched the surface of the far-reaching menu and eagerly await a chance to return. Reservations are strongly recommended. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2011Bokampers Sports Bar & Grill, 8990 Fontana Del Sol Way; 431-7611 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 Caf Lurcat, 494 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 213-3357 Despite its grand scale (vaulted ceilings, oversized pendant lamps, sprawling dining areas spilling into the outdoors), Caf Lurcat manages to create a sense of warmth with muted colors, light woods and white linens. Its the kind of place where you want to slow down and savor several courses of food and several glasses of wine though it will come at a price. ($14.50 for a single crab cake? Really?) The menu ranges from simple comfort food (pot roast or roasted chicken and grapes) to more complex creations (pork tenderloin with spiced cherries and couscous with toasted pumpkin seeds). Either way you go, you wont be disappointed. Even side dishes a mlange of English peas, sugarsnap peas and fresh fava beans sauted in butter for us will delight. But be sure to save room for the signature cinnamon-sugar doughnuts or fried huckleberry pie. Dessert is not to be missed. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2011Figs Grille, 25987 Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 390-1700 Sam Tadros, the chef behind the popular Sam-Bucco Bistro in North Naples, has another winning concept with this exploration of the cuisines of Turkey, Spain, Morocco, Lebanon and France. Egyptian tapestries adorn the walls in the garnet and gold dining room. Ceiling lamps evoke Morocco and ethnic music plays softly in the background, but the effect is understated. Whichever country you decide to visit for your main course, your meal should begin with the mezze platter of hummus and baba ganoush as well as charry and sweet grilled eggplant chunks and cucumber salad served with lightly pickled vegetables. You cant go wrong with one of several Turkish kebabs or the filet medallions with grilled shrimp, garnished lavishly with caramelized onions, port wine sauce and fig chutney. Lush (chocolate marquise) or light (lemon semifreddo), dessert shouldnt be missed either. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2011Fernandez 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.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C47 With Fosters Grille (Home of the Charburger), Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and other patty slingers already established at Gulf Coast Town Center, the newly arrived Elevation Burger faces a herd of competition. What sets it apart from the rest of the crowd? It starts with organic beef from grass-fed, free-range cattle that is freshly ground on the premises. No antibiotics or growth hormones are used, and the meat is lower in saturated fat than conventional beef. Yes, a healthier burger. Even healthier: two choices of vegetable burgers. Even the French fries are better for you, being cooked in olive oil (no trans or saturated fats). The signature Elevation Burger ($5.99) contains 510 calories, according to the menu, and thats a two-patty sandwich that is filling enough to serve as your main meal of the day. In addition to the usual toppings, add-ons include caramelized onions (15 calories), organic bacon (45 calories), balsamic mustard (5 calories) and aged cheddar (90 calories). Including those calorie counts on the menu is a great service to patrons watching their intake. For those who throw such cautions to the wind: the Vertigo Burger, which starts with three patties and can be upgraded to a head-spinning 10. However many you settle on, the 3.2-ounce burgers are cooked on a proprietary quick-service system that involves a conveyor belt with 94 cast-iron griddle plates that heat patties through in four minutes while also warming the buns. The plates are tilted at a 4-degree angle to drain off fat. There are only four of these in existence, general manager Bob Douglas says, adding the Super Griddle was designed exclusively for Elevation Burger. The Gulf Coast Town Center location is one of the chains four test sites for the Super Griddle. The Virginia-based company will soon open another location at The Promenade at Naples Centre and plans further expansion in Southwest Florida. In addition to burgers and fries, Elevation serves a grilled cheese sandwich, a salad and shakes and malts in nine flavors, including mango, Key lime and cheesecake. Hours are 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.Tea fit for a queenCelebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee with a special tea at Brambles Tea Room.
