C1 Driven to TriumphTens years for the Holocaust Museum & Education Center, and more reasons to celebrate around town. C33, 35, 36-37 Architect David Corban has been feeling rather humbled lately, as the Naples home he built and lives in has landed on the same Top-100 list as the Sanibel guest home that inspired him as a child. In launching the Florida Architecture: 100 Years, 100 Places competition to celebrate its 100th anniversary, the Florida chapter of the American Institute of Architects has identified 100 buildings that represent the best in the states architectural achievements. Five buildings in Collier and Lee counties made the list. Mr. Corbans residence, the Haldeman Creek house, is a home atop the water; a contemporary play on an old stilt house, indicative of Pine Island. Clean lines, but warm cypress. Walk in the door, see straight through the house and out over the water. The breeze sweeps over the water and the house takes advantage, welcome and wide open; the deck, the living room, the kitchen, the scene all melding into one. His childhood inspiration, the Walker guest house on Sanibel Island, designed by internationally reno wned architect Paul Rudolph is also among the Top 100. A PATTI RAGAN IS having a tough time getting over the death of her beloved Roger. At only 33 years old, Roger had a lot of good living left in him, Ms. Ragan thought.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2012 Bayfront Place 489 Bayfront, Naples FL 34102 St. Pattys Day Bash! $4 $7 Irish $6 The fact is, I just love a Publix. I like the exorbitant bounty of each store. I like the extraordinary selection of foods and materials from the nation and the world presented every minute of every business day on every aisle and in every department for each and every customer. At Publix, you can get produce, meat or fish from all over the Americas, Europe, Asia and even Australia and New Zealand. Preserved foods from anywhere and everywhere except the poles. An organic diet that would have dazzled the most productive 19th century farm communities. Wines from four or five continents. Want to see American wealth at a glance and simultaneously mainline a dose of bullish optimism? Dont worry about the stock market. Never mind the banks. Ignore the Fed or the rising number of home sales and new construction permits. Just enter a Publix and look around. But even more than that, I like the people who work in Publix supermarkets: the ones who wheel carts off the black asphalt whether its 40 degrees or 104 degrees. The ones who ask how you are today, looking you in the eye and actually wanting to know. The ones who offer to help you out to your car even when youre a decades younger big strapping hunk of well-fed COMMENTARY rogerWILLIAMS email@example.com male flesh. Youve probably experienced it: A 5-foot 8-inch model of uncomplaining spunk, three-score-and-ten if hes a day, delivers a single line with sincerity as stainless as steel: Would you like help out today, maam? I like the people who ring up the groceries, who stock the aisles and who manage the sections and the store. Managers treat employees like family and treat customers like special guests, regardless of race, creed, religion, age, sex or personal aesthetic style (in my case, probably illegal). I like going into a Publix 100 times in a year and coming out not just with groceries, but with friends. Friends like the checkout clerk who gives my sons old movies she no longer wants, keeping them in her car trunk until she spots us, then sending me out with her key to fetch them for the boys. Virginia. Or the gentleman and I use that word precisely, a true gentleman who once spoke so cheerfully to my mother in the parking lot that the sun came out on a cloudy day, literally and all of a sudden. I quickly ignored every iota of empirical training I ever received in the nations public schools and universities and instantly attributed that phenomenon to the mystical hand of God working through him. Will, age 75, from West Virginia. But as much as I like all that, Im a lot less excited by the companys top officials at least this week, while the Publix headquarters in Lakeland is being picketed by farm workers who pick tomatoes. Publix officials have long refused to meet with them even to simply sit down for an hour and talk about how the corporation can help make their lives a little easier, since the company has traditionally profited from the tomatoes they pick in Florida. Since Publix is known for treating people well which is why it often ranks near the top of best places to work lists in Fortune Magazine and elsewhere Id think this would be a no-brainer for the corporation with the big heart. After all, Publix goes out of its way not only to give its employees decent working lives (its employee owned, after all), but it looks out for customers and communities, too. That includes doing everything from providing unused food to area food banks to giving money to worthy causes. Last April, for example, Publix celebrated Earth Day by handing tens of thousands of dollars to the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership, which helps protect the wildcaught shrimping and fishing industries. That do-well-by-doing-good philosophy works for the big food corporation. In 2011, Publix reported $27 billion in sales, including a $1.5 billion profit. But with all that largesse, Publix officials still havent done what they can to end decades of farmworker abuse resulting from wages that are woefully short of fair, or even of subsistence parity. Those who pick tomatoes have asked for a penny more per pound, which would increase their annual wages from about $10,000 to about $17,000, they estimate. Publix officials, in response, have said that the pay of these workers is not their business, but that they would be delighted on behalf of tomato pickers if the surcharge an extra penny per pound were included in the market price Publix pays to buy tomatoes. We are more than willing to pay a penny more per pound or whatever the market price for tomatoes will be, a spokesperson has written in comments quoted by daily newspapers. Thats exactly what the farmworkers (represented by the Coalition of Immokalee Workers or CIW) are hoping for, and its the only thing they want not a Publix that butts its nose into the labor-relations policies of other companies. Instead, workers would like Publix to sit down at the table and tell them, in a meeting that would represent many people of good will, that the corporation would kick in a surcharge of a penny per pound for tomatoes. (We) would agree today to an agreement that puts the premium in the price, a spokesman for the Coalition of Immokalee Workers told me Monday. The money would be placed in a growers payroll account and distributed equally to all workers representing any corporate farm, thus paying the surcharge and helping workers without telling farm companies how much they should pay them. A number of other famous companies that use Florida tomatoes have seen the logic of this request, and acted with good heart and good faith: Taco Bell, Burger King, McDonalds, Trader Joess and Whole Foods to name just some. If Publix would show its already demonstrable good will by agreeing, then instead of fasting, marching and picketing, the CIW would, in an instant, welcome Publix into a true brotherhood of American food providers. And that can only be good for all of us, and all of them. The stink at Publix

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2012 The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, thinks that Iran is a rational actor. He is indisputably correct. Tehran couldnt have made itself into the worlds foremost exporter of terror and extended its tentacles throughout the Middle East without resorting to rational calculation. Thats obvious. What Dempsey is implying, though, is that a regime capable of such calculation can necessarily be deterred if it gets a nuclear weapon. Thats an unsupportable leap. If the Soviets, the famous evil empire bristling with thousands of nuclear weapons, could be deterred, why not Iran? The Soviet leadership became more pragmatic over time. After Nikita Khrushchev renounced Josef Stalin, it didnt believe that war with its enemies was imminent and inevitable. Irans religio-ideological fire, in contrast, is still burning hot. From our perspective, there is no point in establishing a theocracy, killing innocents abroad, pursuing sectarian war, crushing protesters, denying the Holocaust and threatening Israel with annihilation, either. From the point of view of the Western liberal tradition, the Islamic Republic itself makes no sense. Yet there it is, withstanding punishing economic sanctions to pursue the weapon that the regime wouldnt want in the first place if it accepted international norms. A highly ideological leadership with a sense of desperate urgency is the enemy of deterrence. In 1941, Dean Acheson rightly said: No rational Japanese could believe an attack on us could result anything but disaster. Except the Japanese driven by a sense of honor alien to us believed that they only had two choices: getting squeezed out of China by the U.S., or launching a risky war. Even in the Cold War, deterrence almost failed. During the Cuban Missile Crisis, the airstrike and invasion pushed by the Joint Chiefs of Staff might well have unwittingly prompted a nuclear exchange. The defense secretary at the time, the late Bob McNamara, maintained that we lucked out. Ah, yes, that crucial backstop to deterrence luck. The Israelis can be forgiven for not feeling very lucky. Do we think Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei will establish a red telephone to smooth out misunderstandings after Iran goes nuclear? The Iranian regime is factionalized, and it is sure to be the most fanatical elements that control the nukes. It also is prone to bouts of popular unrest threatening its existence. If the regime ever believes it is going down, national martyrdom might look gloriously alluring. In March 1945, Adolf Hitler gave his infamous Nero Decree, essentially calling for the destruction of Germany. After the first U.S. atomic attack on Hiroshima, the Japanese war minister mused about how wonderful it would be if his nation were destroyed like a beautiful flower. It is in this tradition that former Iranian President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani a relative pragmatist said that even one nuclear bomb inside Israel will destroy everything. However, it will only harm the Islamic world. It is not irrational to contemplate such an eventuality. On his own perverse terms, Rafsanjanis reasoning is unassailable. Hes just another rational actor. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. c c c l t R i richLOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONIrans terrible rationality GUEST OPINIONMarch is Seagrass Awareness Month KATIE TRIPP, PH.D.Director of Science & Conservation Save the Manatee ClubMarch signals springtime in Florida the longer days and warmer weather can create ideal conditions for fishing, kayaking, boating or stand up paddle boarding in Floridas estuaries and other coastal waterways. It is fitting then that March is also Seagrass Awareness Month because seagrass beds are such an important component of our coastal waterways. According to a recent report by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, 2.2 million acres of seagrasses have been documented in Florida waters, providing ecological services worth $20 billion per year. Ecological services include habitat values that cannot be measured by a traditional economic scale i.e. the value of providing habitat to juvenile sport fish or food for manatees and sea turtles. Seagrass beds also provide direct economic benefits to Florida through fishing charters and ecotourism businesses. The condition of Floridas seagrasses varies in different regions. Seagrasses in the Keys are believed to be stable while those in certain areas of Southwest Florida and the Panhandle are declining. Seagrasses along Floridas east coast have been showing an increasing trend, and South Florida contains nearly 60 percent of the states seagrasses. However, great losses in seagrass abundance in Brevard County in 2011 caused by environmental factors are a reminder that these ecosystems are vulnerable. Seagrasses are found in clear and relatively shallow waters because their growth is fueled by sunlight. Their occurrence in shallow water makes them susceptible to damage by boats that may try to motor through areas without proper clearance, creating prop scars in the grass beds. A churning propeller cuts not only the blades of the grasses, but uproots and destroys the rhizomes (roots) in the sand and it can take years for the sediment to support regrowth and allow the scars to heal. To prevent prop scarring, boats should stay in marked deep water channels while traveling. Flats boats fishing in the seagrass beds should use poles and trolling motors to move through the water, to avoid damaging seagrasses with their engines. If boaters become stuck in a shallow area with seagrss ses or other submerged resources, they should never use the engine to try to blast free. Instead, they should turn off the engine, shift passenger weight distribution in the boat, and try to move the boat using a long pole or oar. If necessary, one or more passengers can exit the boat and push it to deeper water. Boaters should also use polarized sunglasses to reduce glare and help them see resources like seagrasses located beneath the waters surface. Seagrasses are negatively affected by stormwater runoff and algae blooms that block the suns rays since they need sunlight to grow. Stormwater runoff to coastal waters can be reduced by creating swales and retention ponds and using pervious pavement. Limiting use of fertilizers in landscapes adjacent to coastal waterways can reduce the nutrient loading that contributes to algae blooms. All of us who live and recreate in coastal areas can take steps to make our waters cleaner and protect the seagrasses that are so vitally important to our aquatic ecosystem and economy. Dr. Tripp has been Save the Manatee Clubs director of science and conservation since May of 2008. She received her Ph.D. in veterinary medical sciences from the University of Florida, where she conducted research on manatee physiology.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2012 With our countrys involvement in two wars, Ive appreciated the commentary on my show over the past few years of Brian Jones, former Delta Force operator. As much as his wisdom and understanding of the wars, I appreciate and respect what he achieved in the military. Brian and his wife, Michelle, own and operate Adventure Training Concepts, where they use their combined extensive military experience to create safe, meaningful adventures that result in better teamwork and increased productivity for groups and businesses of all sizes and types. Brian was born into a military family. In fact, on the date of his birth in 1956, his father was at sea on an aircraft carrier. Brian grew up on bases in Guam, Japan and Korea, and finished high school in Charleston, S.C. He joined the Army in 1981 and discovered very quickly that he aspired to participate in Special Operations. While at the 2nd Ranger Battalion, he was asked to try out for 1st SFOD-D (Delta Force). Out of the 127 Special Forces and Ranger soldiers participating in the sixweek selection process, only two were placed in a squadron. Brian served for seven years at Delta. For the layperson, Delta Force is the most elite fighting force in the U.S. military. During Brians service in Delta, he deployed to Panama to spearhead Operation Just Cause, a mission to rescue an American being held hostage by armed guard in the Modello prison. In that mission, Delta Force created a distraction, broke through the prison roof, neutralized the guard and escaped with the prisoner in less than six minutes. During the Gulf War, Brians squadron was deployed to Somalia to hunt down Mohamed Aided (the Blackhawk Down battle). While there were losses, the mission was a success. His next deployment was to Colombia on a manhunt for drug lord Pablo Escobar. Then, as a DOD Special Operations Integrator, Brian went to Iraq to combat insurgents inserting improvised explosive devices.Brian reached the highest enlisted rank of command sergeant major within 17 years of service. He achieved the Ranger tab, Master Parachutist badge, High Altitude Low Opening (HALO) parachutist badge and many other Special Operations-type qualifications before he retired with 21 years of U.S. Army service to his country.Brian and Michelle met in Bamberg, Germany, where he performed the last three years of service and where Michelle was a captain in the Transportation Corps. Ironically, as a first lieutenant, she replaced another lieutenant who had been training with Brian to prepare for Special Forces selection. It was love at first sight. They were married in Tampa after Brian retired. In addition to running their business, Brian and Michelle contribute their time, PROFILES IN PARADISEFrom Delta Force to team building in Naples m t d t A g s bobHARDEN e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Talking points with Brian JonesSomething thats been on your mind: I am very concerned with the outcome of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and the effect it will have on the families of fallen heroes. Secondly, I am deeply concerned about the wounded warriors who are home or are returning home with serious injuries and post traumatic stress syndrome Organizations like Wounded Warrior help in a tremendous way, but what helps most is when a stranger extends a hand and says, Thank you for your service. We were praying for your safe return. Something your mom was always right about: She told me while I was in high school that I was going to meet the sweetest girl ever who would change my life someday. Well, I did, but not until I was 45 years old. What makes you laugh: Lifes predicaments make me laugh. Though sometimes frustrating, embarrassing or a little painful, its what we as humans do about them that I nd hilarious Last book you read: I recently nished A Land Remembered, about a family who pioneered Southwest Florida. Priceless history and an amazing story on American resolve, its a must-read for anyone who loves this place. Pet peeve: Obnoxious people and bullies. I never have and will not tolerate them Hidden talent: I love ice cream, and I suppose that if I have a hidden talent, its that I can eat a lot of it. What are you most proud of? Two things: My Army career, and Michelle, for earning her MBA while we were starting our business. High school job: Delivering sheet rock, usually up many ights of stairs, for a construction supply company. I made $1.65 an hour. What the Paradise Coast really needs: A business-friendly atmosphere. Permitting and other fees on existing business and new business should be reassessed. Jobs and growth are at an all-time low, so we should take steps to help businesses choose this region to expand or start, and to help existing businesses grow without fear. Favorite thing about the Paradise Coast: The winters, the people and the Everglades. When Michelle and I think about where we would like to go for a vacation, we both agree: nowhere!talent and treasure to the community. Michelle serves on the board of directors of the PACE Center for Girls-Collier at Immokalee, and they also support the Shelter for Abused Women & Children, the Boys and Girls Club, the Leadership Collier Foundation and the Collier County SWAT Team. Its truly a pleasure to know such fine, honorable people on the Paradise Coast. Bob Harden is the producer and host of The Bob Harden Show, airing from 7-8 a.m. weekdays at www.bobharden.com.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2012 support from friends and Ms. Ragan. While his life had been difficult, the Center for Great Apes sanctuary gave him comfort for his last 10 years. Roger was one of 45 great apes spending their golden years and retirement from the entertainment business at the sanctuary located in Wauchula, about two hours from Fort Myers. For apes like Roger and Mickey, as well as other exotic wildlife, having a place to live after being used as entertainers or illegally kept at private homes without proper housing is a blessing. Their other option would be death, since exotic wildlife cannot be brought to animal shelters and adopted. For the operators who are fueled by compassion for animals and a zeal to make a difference and save lives, sanctuaries offer a chance to do just that. Florida is home to about a dozen sanctuaries some for exotic wildlife and others for native creatures. Why so many? In two words: great weather. The balmy temperatures that bring swarms of tourists and retirees to Florida also agree with wildlife specifically exotics such as lions and tigers that come from steamier parts of the globe. Aside from the animals comfort, warmer weather is also easier on a caretakers pocketbook, said Lynn Wittmeier, who runs Lion, Tigers and Bears Inc. with her husband Dennis. Mrs. Wittmeier, Ms. Ragan and other Southwest Florida sanctuary operators share a unique kinship. Each of them works to save wildlife that would not have a place to go or would be otherwise destroyed. Aside from the immediate life-saving needs of the animals, the sanctuaries are also places of education and enlightenment for visitors who might not otherwise ever have a chance to see lions, tigers, bears and other large carnivores up close.Comfort and joyFor Ms. Ragan, the director of the Center for Great Apes, as well as other wildlife sanctuary operators, supporting their wildlife charges is a mission to bring some joy and comfort to animals who in many cases are abused, neglected or exploited for entertainment and money. At the Center for Great Apes, which is accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, many of the residents are former entertainers. A GFAS accredited facility means animals are getting treated properly and humanely. A facility must apply for the special accreditation, Ms. Ragan said. The special recognition can help apes like Popi get the care they need. Popi, a female orangutan, performed in nightclub acts in Las Vegas and played a girlfriend to male orangutan Clyde in the Clint Eastwood movie Every Which Way but Loose. And of course theres Bubbles, Michael Jacksons former chimpanzee. The chimps used in the Career Builder commercials that aired during the 2005 Super Bowl also live at the Center for Great Apes. Apes used in the entertainment business are typically pulled from their mothers when theyre young and are exploited until they are too big to be cute and make money. Although apes like Popi have made money while they worked, there are no retirement plans for them to tap into after they are discarded by their employers. Other apes at the center are the victims of a different kind of abuse, coming from cramped cages and crates at a private residents home, yard or garage. Marco, the centers oldest ape at 52, was captured in Africa in 1960 and used in a circus. After the circus, he was left in someones backyard. It would be 45 years before Marco would see another chimp. Now at the center, Marco has friends and a chimps social life. Things are looking up for this senior ape. But there are many more hard luck stories like Marcos. Aside from the chimps, there are a growing number of orangutans that need a place to stay. Since orangutans are solitary creatures and adult males cannot be close to other adult males, elaborate enclosures are needed to create habitats for them. Add to this the ever-decreasing natural habitats in the wild due to the growing use of palm oil in products more orangutans have no place to go. The increasing use of palm oil leads to more land being cultivated for palm trees and ultimately the deforestation of habitats for wildlife such as orangutans. No habitat means the orangutans are becoming homeless or in many cases being killed as the trees they live in are destroyed. For them and many other great apes, sanctuaries such as the rural 100-acre Center for Great Apes are the only option.Shy Wolf Sanctuary Meanwhile, a couple of hours a way in Naples, Nancy Smith works to care for more than 30 wolves, several foxes, a declawed bobcat and a handful of other homeless critters. Theres no place for them to go, said Ms. Smith, president of the Shy Wolf Sanctuary said. Theyre not going to shelters. Some people get wolves or wolf hybrids thinking they will have what amounts to an obedient house pet. But thats not how the wolf thinks, Ms. Smith said. They are solitary, shy, independent-minded creatures. They think and work problems out, she said. Along with caring for the wolves and other animals on the sanctuarys 2-acre lot, Ms. Smith sees her mission as one of education and creating awareness. She hopes by talking to visitors and sharing the lives of the four-legged residents, they will develop compassion and better understanding of the wolf. We are trying to change peoples way of looking at them, she said. Ms. Smith welcomes visitors to the sancturary with a wide smile. While recently guiding more than a dozen people around the grounds, she pointed to Bear, a 13-year-old senior. She beamed at Tein, a full wolf that is shy. Hes an awesome boy, Ms. Smith cooed at him. She explained a bit about the wolfs life. Like us, they prefer cooler weather and dont do much in the heat. They like to nap in the late morning. During playtime, they enjoy a dip in large poollike basins or they toss around bowling pins and other toys. Theyre very curious, Ms. Smith said. Ms. Smith hopes to dispel myths regarding wolves myths that ultimately get the creatures killed. People look at them like theyre evil and theyre going to eat you up, she said. In reality, theyre going to run from people. At a point in the tour, Saia, a female wolf, came up to check out the guests who watched her from benches alongside her enclosure. She would only come so close before backing up. Later, visitors had a chance to pet a gentle, older wolf. They seemed enchanted by the thick-coated animals. Its a great experience, Tara Tucker said. The Boston resident had come to the sanctuary with her son Clay, 14, who checked out a wolf loping by in an enclosure. The air filled with a chorus of giggles as Ms. Smith nodded to two full-wolf sisters, Chatima and Maraya, who seemed to ignore one another and play together in equal parts. They argue like sisters, she said. Letting people see how wolves live is a vital part of the education portion of the sanctuary. Theres not that much difference from us, Ms. Smith said. The problem is when people try to change them into a dog instead of what they are.Octagon Wildlife Sanctuary Creating awareness and saving lives is paramount to Laurie Caron, who runs the Octagon sanctuary in Punta Gorda. Ms. Caron has been caring for animals at Octagon for 19 of the 35 years the facility has existed. Before her husband Peter passed away several years ago, they ran the sanctuary together.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2012 NEWS A9 menagerie of wildlife including lions, tigers, bears, cougars, a baboon and a leopard. Ms. Caron said they take wildlife that has been confiscated by authorities as well as exotic animals from show business and other situations. Ms. Caron said that during the 1970s, many animals wound up in Florida from the circuses as they traveled down Alligator Alley. Some were dumped off and had no place to go. Many are seniors with health problems and need much care. We are kind of like a nursing home retirement community, Ms. Caron said. The animals are often as diverse in personality as they are in appearance. Squiggy, Laverne and Shirley are bears that seem quite content to frolic near their giant bathtub-like container filled with water. Laverne and Shirley glance over as people walk by. The two brown bears are sisters. Squiggy is a grizzly bear. Squiggy used to be beaten with a pipe in order to train him for commercials. The three bears live together and play. Another brown bear, Cinnamon, who loves to romp with a tire in a vat of cool water, came from the Moscow Circus in Atlanta, Ga. She is about 30 years old. Bears can live up to 50 years in captivity. Kashmir is a male golden tabby Bengal tiger. When he came to Octagon, the staff had to burn their clothes after handling him since he was covered in urine. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission confiscated the rare tiger 13 years ago.Partnering with authorities The FWC considers sanctuaries like Octagon a blessing. Lar Gregory, a captive wildlife investigator for a fivecounty area that encompasses much of Southwest Florida, said Octagon has been able to take numerous animals from his agency. A lot of these large carnivores have nowhere else to go, he said. They do very well at these sanctuaries. Mr. Gregory said that in order to have exotic wildlife, which is broken down into Class 1 (large animals such as lions, tigers and apes), Class 2 (wolves, bobcats) and Class 3 (raccoons and other smaller wildlife), a license and paperwork must be obtained. And in the case of the large carnivores or apes, a proper facility with at least 5 acres and 1,000 hours of experience with the particular species being sought must be logged. Within the Southwest Florida area, there are about 15 to 20 active Class 1 licenses issued, Mr. Gregory said. Of those licenses, about eight to 10 of them belong to private residents. One resident in Cape Coral apparently has a cougar because it was grandfathered in before current regulations were established. In the case of someone found to illegally have wildlife specifically a Class I animal it will be removed from the home. In 2006, two tigers were removed from a Port Charlotte mans backyard. The tigers are now being cared for at Octagon. Mr. Gregory urges people to rethink any romantic notions of owning wildlife. They can be very dangerous. Mr. Gregory said. They are not going to have the same disposition as a cat or a dog. They are really nothing you should have as a pet.Money, manpower and love Sanctuaries run on three things: love, manpower and money. Southwest Florida sanctuary owners are driven by a desire to help and nurture animals that would die if not for their facilities. A love of animals is seemingly inherent in most sanctuary operators. For Mrs. Wittmeier, love of animals has been a lifelong love affair. I always liked animals, she said. I had pets growing up. The love she gives to animals like tigers Samson and Delilah seems to boomerang right back to her. She and he husband Dennis commit their lives day in and out to caring for the animals at Lions, Tigers and Bears Inc. There are no vacations or even getaways. The animals are their life. People want an animal to center around them, Mrs. Wittmeier said. Exotics is the opposite. But what the couple loses in vacation time they gain in togetherness. Mr. Wittmeier builds and repairs structures on the 40-acre property near Arcadia and Mrs. Wittmeier does much of the animal care. With us, it has strengthened our marriage, she said. Ms. Smith, who operates the Shy Wolf Sanctuary with her husband Kent, knows each wolf individually. She frets about Bear, who wasnt feeling well one day, or about the coyote that came to them recently and still hides in the back of an enclosure too afraid to come out. The sanctuary operators fill with joy when the animals they care for are doing well or have done something comical and sweet. They cringe when one gets injured or sick. To them, the creatures are family. Raising a family that requires thousands of food, medicines for its old and sick residents, and a vast amount of upkeep, can cost a lot of money. Sanctuaries are often funded by donations, but dont receive any government funding. At Octagon, it costs up to $5,000 per year per animal to feed and care for them. There are around 130 animals there. At the Center for Great Apes, it costs about $20,000 per ape per year, Ms. Ragan said. There are more than 40 apes at the sanctuary. Some stores like Sweetbay donate meat that is considered not fit for human consumption to sanctuaries like Octagon. But with all of the animal needs there never seems to be enough dollars at these all-volunteer run facilities. Most sanctuaries offer visitation with a nominal admission or donation request. Those monies help care for the animals. Cash might be vital to maintaining the sanctuaries but volunteers are crucial too. For more than a decade, Michael Kolbert has left his home in Germany once a year to spend weeks at Octagon to care for the animals. He has been serving the animals for more than a decade. At home (where private ownership is illegal) he waits until he can come to Punta Gorda and volunteer. He nuzzles up close to the bears, tigers and lions that seem to recognize him and enjoy his company. They love to have me around, Mr. Kolbert said. And thats the important part. For Ms. Caron, volunteers like Mr. Kolbert are priceless. This place wouldnt exist without the volunteers, she said. They put the heart and soul into it. The area sanctuaries are open to the public on certain days and times. During the year, some of them hold fundraisers, and special events bring in more dollars and enlighten people about their existence and purpose. We cant save the world, but if we can stop people from getting these animals, I think were doing something, Mrs. Wittmeier said. Laurie Caron runs the Octagon sanctuary in Punta Gorda. She has cared for the animals there for 19 years. Macaws Harley and Rainbow at Octagon.

It has been immortalized in books and studied by architecture students all over the world. I tell people that building might be one of the reasons why I became an architect, Mr. Corban says of the Walker guesthouse, remembering how he stared at the house and its contraptions as a boy. He describes the emblematic pivoting panels when down, the panels serve as enclosing walls, making the space cozy and den-like, while shielding the dwelling from rain or storms; when up, they shade the structure, serving as a ventilating element and transmuting the guest home into the landscape. Looking much like cannonballs, the counterweights to pulley the panels held the young Mr. Corban motionless and transfixed. Its very active, says the architect, now 46 years old. It doesnt sit there. It moves, it pivots, it hinges. And it leaves an impression on a childs fascination, hence his career. I try to make buildings that will have lasting effects on people, he says. That building definitely did on me. The other three Southwest Florida buildings with impressions moving enough to make the AIA Florida Top 100 list: The Edison and Ford Winter Estates along the riverfront in Fort Myers and St. Agnes Catholic Church and the Neugebauer House in Naples. Beginning this week, the public can rank the nominated buildings, voting on their favorite by visiting the AIA website at www.aiafla.org. Architect Joyce Owens says AIAs purpose for the competition is to engage the public to connect with architecture, because, as she sometimes worries, Architectures kind of going by the wayside. People are not appreciating the value. Yes, she encourages the public to vote, but more, Hey, pay attention, she says. Thats my mantra, I guess. As a catalyst to connecting to architecture, here are some of Mr. Corbans musings on our local nominees. Of the historic Edison home, Mr. Corban admires the deep porches and deep overhangs, which allow the breeze to coming through while keeping the sun out. He considers the space the ultimate home office, mirroring the man and his inventive self, as the home solved Mr. Edisons lust to live and work in the tropics. Regarding St. Agnes Catholic Church, he applauds architect Andrea Clark Brown for her balance of creativity and relevancy, for bringing the outside in with her use of natural light. He acknowledges many people are involved in designing a church and says, Design by committee is not the easiest thing to do. Ms. Clark Brown, he adds, did it beautifully. He marvels at the cleverness of the contemporary Neugebauer house. Architect Richard Meier respected the standards of the Port Royal neighborhood, adhering to set roof dimensions, but he gave his roof some slope. Instead of having his roof peak in the middle, he put a valley in the middle, inverting the roof, turning it upside down and sending gazes soaring. Its very flattering to be thought of in the same breath as these guys, Mr. Corban says of his nomination. As far as the contest, he says, It just goes to show a lot of world-class architecture has been done and is being done in Florida. A moment later he stresses, And in Southwest Florida.

When a cannibal loves a vampireNewspapers in Sweden reported in January that two of the countrys most heinous murderers apparently fell in love with each other behind the locked doors of their psychiatric institution and, following a 26-day Internet-chat courtship, have decided to marry. Mr. Isakin Jonsson (the Skara Cannibal) was convicted of killing, decapitating and eating his girlfriend, and Michelle Gustafsson (the Vampire Woman) was convicted of killing a father of four and drinking his blood. Said the love-struck Mr. Jonsson (certainly truthfully), to the newspaper Expressen, I have never met anyone like (Michelle). The pair will almost certainly remain locked up forever, but Ms. Gustafsson, on the Internet, wrote that she hopes they will be released, to live together and have dogs and pursue our hobbies, piercing and tattoos.Compelling explanations In December, music teacher Kevin Gausepohl, 37, was charged in Tacoma, Wash., Municipal Court with communicating with a minor for immoral purposes, allegedly convincing a 17-year-old female student that she could sing better if she tried it naked. Mr. Gausepohl later told an investigator of his excitement about experimenting at the human participant level to determine how sexual arousal affects vocal range. The girl complied with some of Mr. Gausepohls requests, but finally balked and turned him in. Rock Dagenais, 26, pleaded guilty recently to weapons charges after creating a siege by bringing a knife, a sawed-off rifle and 100 rounds of ammunition to a Quebec elementary school. He eventually surrendered peacefully and said he was only trying to send the kids a message not to disrespect each other by bullying. Ghosts in the news Michael West, 41, of Fond du Lac, Wis., at first said his wife hurt herself by falling, but finally acknowledged that she was attacked but by ghosts, not by him. (He was charged, anyway, in January.) Anthony Spicer, 29, was sentenced in January in Cincinnati after being discovered at an abandoned school among copper pipes that had been cut. He denied prosecutors assertions that he was collecting scrap metal because he said he was actually looking for ghosts, since the school is supposed to be haunted. Ironies The 547-acre FBI Academy on the grounds of Quantico (Va.) Marine Base houses a firing range on which about a million bullets a month are shot by agents in training, but it also happens to be a de facto wildlife refuge for the simple fact that the academy is off-limits to Virginia hunters. Thus, according to a December ABC News dispatch, deer learn that, despite the gunfire (sometimes at astonishingly close range as they wander by the targets), none of them ever gets hit. The academy is also a sanctuary for foxes, wild turkeys and other critters. Equity Lifestyle Properties of Chicago fired receptionist Sharon Smiley after 10 years service because she violated company policy by declining to stop working during her lunch hour. (The companys strict policy is apparently based on avoiding liability for overtime pay, but Smiley had in fact clocked out for lunch while remaining at her desk.) Ms. Smiley subsequently applied for unemployment benefits, but the administrator denied them because the firing was for insubordination. However, in January, a state appeals court granted the benefits. A South Carolina circuit court ruled in December that the sales contract on a former theater in downtown Laurens, S.C., was binding and that the rightful owner is the African-American-headed New Beginning Missionary Baptist Church even though the propertys only current tenant is the Redneck Shop, which features Confederacy and Ku Klux Klan merchandise. (New Beginnings purchased the church in 1997 from a Klan member who was unloading it because of a personal rift with the head klansman who wanted it back after they reconciled.)Latest human rightsLibrarians typically can shush patrons whose conversation disturbs others, but, at least in Washington state, librarians are powerless to prevent another disturbance when a pornography users computer screen disgusts other library patrons who inadvertently glimpse it. A visitor to the Seattle Public Library complained in February that the librarian said she was bound by a 2010 state supreme court decision upholding the right of consumers of otherwise-legal pornography not to be censored.Non-humans human rights Elena Zakharova of New York City became the most recent litigant to challenge a state law that regards pets as property (and that, thus, the owner of an injured or disfigured pet is entitled to no more consideration than for a defective appliance). She sued a pet store that had sold her a dog with allegedly bum knees and hips, claiming that dogs are living creatures that feel love and pain, that have souls, and that should be compensated for their pain and suffering. The case is pending. In February, a federal judge in San Diego, Calif., heard arguments by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals that SeaWorld was confining its show whales in violation of the U.S. Constitutions 13th Amendment (the Civil War-era prohibition of slavery). Two days later, he ruled that the amendment applies only to human slavery. NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

Mrs. Bronstein is confined to a wheelchair because of multiple sclerosis. That doesnt stop her from pursuing her dreams, however. The author of I Have MS, It Doesnt Have Me moved to Naples because warmer weather can ease the symptoms of her disease. The MS wasnt real bad when I first moved here, she says. I sat on the beach every day and enjoyed the sun. Then one day I couldnt get up off the beach chair. They had to come carry me off. I just lost everything. Until 2008, Mrs. Bronsteins husband, a World War II veteran, took her everywhere, helping her in and out of their home. When he died, she had to compromise her safety to continue to do the things she loved. Every time I tried to go into the kitchen, I would take a chunk of drywall off. I couldnt reach my cabinets or appliances, she says. When the Collier Building Industry Association Remodelers Council heard about Mrs. Bronsteins need for a ramp, local contractors rallied support to help her regain her mobility.

Remodelers Council members went back to the drawing board, developing a $40,000 renovation to provide Mrs. Bronstein with a wheelchair ramp as well as a completely new kitchen and master bathroom.

When the final renovation was unveiled, Mrs. Bronstein was spinning in her wheelchair in the kitchen she previously couldnt access. Im so excited. I think its going to be like a treasure hunt as I find something new every day, she said.

All are welcome to attend. Naples Cultural Walkway was created in 2008 by the Downtown Naples Association, the Sugden Community Theatre (home of The Naples Players) and The von Liebig Art Center (home of the Naples Art Association) as a way to recognize individuals who had made a significant contribution toward the promotion of cultural arts in the city and the revitalization of the avenue. Each organization adds honorees to the walkway every year. Thousands of area residents and visitors alike have traveled the paved path from the Sugden south across the avenue and past Vergina to The von Liebig, where names of present and past community leaders are permanently engraved on stone pavers. In recognition of their involvement, inspiration and philanthropic impact on the artistic development of the community, the 2012 honorees named by the Naples Art Association are Jim and Debbie Black, Olga Hirschhorn and Marie Mueller. The Blacks have voluntarily provided essential operational support to the NAA for more than a decade. Mrs. Hirschhorn is an artist and consummate art collector who continues to seek new ideas and feed her passion for creativity. Ms. Mueller came to the NAA in the late 1980s and helped form the structure and mission that the organization uses today. Her passion for the arts stayed true throughout the rest of her life. She left a donation to the NAA in her will to benefit its art students. The Naples Players selected Henry and Mary Watkins, Jean Peaslee and Bill Flynn to join the Naples Cultural Walkway this year. The Watkins are literally the first family of The Naples Players, as the organization was formed by a group of theater buffs in their living room 59 years ago. In the early years, the sets for every Naples Players production were built in the Watkins garage and Mary, who plays piano, was the orchestra at performances. Ms. Peaslee was a woman of all seasons for The Naples Players, directing, acting and contributing financially. Mr. Flynn contributed to The Naples Players on many levels, mainly using his considerable experience in the construction business. He designed and built sets and was key when the Sugden Community Theatre was in the planning stages. Mr. Flynn also The 2012 inductees to the Naples Cultural Walkway are:Jack Antaramian Jim and Debbie Black Bill Flynn Olga Hirschhorn Marie Mueller Jean Peaslee Skip Quillen Peter Van Arsdale Henry and Mary Watkins

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.

He and his wife were among The Naples Players most active members for about 20 years; their son, Matt, carries on in the family tradition, serving as technical director designing and building todays sets. The Fifth Avenue South Business Improvement District has named Peter Van Arsdale, Jack Antaramian and Skip Quillen to the Naples Cultural Walkway this year. Mr. Van Arsdale was one of the key individuals who recognized the importance of Fifth Avenue South when it was deteriorating, and he remained a driving force in making the avenue and the city of Naples the destinations they are today. Mr. Quillen owns Culinary Concepts, a restaurant company that started on Fifth Avenue South with Pazzo! Italian Caf 15 years ago and has since grown to include Chops City Grill, Blue Water Bistro and Yabba Island Grill. The Culinary Concepts Karma Club has raised and donated more than $2 million to various local charities. Mr. Antaramian fueled the revitalization of Fifth Avenue in the early 1990s. At a time when buildings stood empty, he took the risk and embraced the concept of adding residences above street-level commercial spaces, starting with overhauling the Colony Court building. Other property owners followed his direction to turn the tired avenue into a chic street of boutiques, offices and cafes in a setting of Mediterranean architecture and palm trees.The new walkway inductees join other Naples arts and entertainment leaders including William and Suzanne von Liebig; Bette Young; Elaine Vreengoor; Ted and Sue Tobye; Herb and Peg Sugden; Dick and Louis Blackburn; Alfred French; Jim Smith; Richard Woodruff; Andres Duany; Susan Earl; Lety and Stephen Schwartz; Alan and Betsy Harris; Patty and Jay Baker; Frances Pew Hayes; Denman Kountze Jr.; Ann Walker; Sal Tenaglia; and former Mayor Bill Barnett.

Temple Shalom, Collier Countys first and still its largest synagogue, celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2012. For any institution in Naples, 50 years is ancient, says James Perman, rabbi emeritus. When it began in 1962 as the Jewish Community Center of Collier County, a few families and individuals from Golden Gate socialized and attended High Holy Day services at various venues, including Golden Gate Community Hall, Citizens National Bank (previously SunTrust Bank), Coast Federal Bank and St. Annes parish hall. As the next decade rolled in, more young professionals, families and retirees joined Naples Jewish population. In 1970, members purchased 2 1 / 3 acres at 1575 Pine Ridge Road for $15,000. They celebrated the groundbreaking for a new building on Nov. 25, 1974, and that building was dedicated on August 31, 1975 when membership consisted of 76 families. In 1980, the official nonprofit Florida corporation bearing the name Temple Shalom Inc. graced the mortgage-free building. Temple membership grew steadily through the 1980s until, in 1988, a group of members purchased property at 4630 Pine Ridge Road and donated the land to Temple Shalom with the specific purpose to build a new synagogue. With $1.5 million raised for the cause, ground was broken on Feb. 28, 1989; the first service was held there on Nov. 8. 1991. At the dedication ceremony in March 1992, Corbin Wyant, thenpublisher of the Naples Daily News, was the featured speaker. In 2000, a wing was added to the building accommodate the growing religious school and preschool. Rabbi Perman, who led services at the temple from 1993-2006 and still does so occasionally, explains that synagogues have three purposes: assembly, worship and education. At Temple Shalom, he started the Hebrew school for children where his wife, Jane, currently teaches. The temples adult education program also includes Sunday school and Hebrew classes. More than 300 students are now enrolled in the temples preschool and its K-12 religious schools, which are open to all faiths. In addition, the temples library is the largest Judaic library in Southwest Florida. Teaching children gives them a sense of identity, a sense of self-worth, a sense of community that makes them want to make the world a better place the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, Rabbi Perman, who also teaches Jewish studies at Florida Gulf Coast University, says.A changing midsetTemple Shalom historian Helen Weinfeld is not only one of the founding members but the longest living member at age 90. Her jovial personality adds a colorful flair to her detailed recollection of stories. She and her family discovered Naples in 1954, when they were en route to Miami from Margate, N.J., for vacation. Mrs. Weinfeld remembers what it felt like to be Jewish in Naples. It was known that the community did not embrace Jews. When my husband and I tried to purchase a lot on the lake just south of Seventh Avenue North near Gulf Shore Boulevard, we were told the owner couldnt sell to us because of our religion. But that didnt stop Joe Weinfeld, an attorney and an astute real estate investor. He looked for a real estate broker who would help him and found Lorenzo Walker, then a member of the Collier County Commission who later became a state legislator. We went out into the woods and bought 640 acres of land as an investment, Mrs. Weinfeld says. Our friends thought we were crazy to buy land in the middle of a swamp. Mrs. Weinfeld also recalls the story of Freda Luff, the first Jewish teacher in Collier County Public Schools. Upon Mrs. Luffs employment, she was told it was on the condition that she refrain from socializing with other members of the school system, she says. Since Freda was a very private person, she kept to herself.Temple Shalom celebrates a golden milestone Golden anniversary celebrationsShabbat service 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 16 The Golden Gala 6:30-11 p.m. Saturday, March 17 The Ritz-Carlton, Naples 280 Vanderbilt Beach Road All are welcome.

Even in 1980, when Temple Shalom was growing and the Naples Jewish community was making great strides, the existence of a temple in Naples did not equate to religious diversity in Collier County, however. The Naples Star, Collier Countys weekly print publication in the early 1980s, reported in 1980 and 1982 that Lawrence and Inez Kates, a Jewish couple from Los Angeles, tried to purchase a $650,000 home in Port Royal in 1979. Their purchase was rejected on grounds of their religion. The couple filed a $30 million lawsuit against the Port Royal Club and its 17 individual directors in federal court in Miami, claiming violation of civil rights and violations under the Fair Housing Statutes of the Florida and U.S. constitutions. The lawsuit, which was settled out of court, resulted in a policy change in Port Royal, which made admission to the community open to anyone who could afford the purchase price, entrance fee to the club and its annual dues. Some residents at the time moved out. A story in the Sept. 17, 1982, edition of the Star reported a mother being displeased about the Collier County Public Schools policy that if a Jewish child missed school to celebrate of a religious holiday, he or she was considered absent, not out of school for religious reasons. Only 10 absences per year were allowed. The mother voiced concerns that her children had fewer days to miss school for illness, if necessary, than did children who were not Jewish; her children could have eight excused sick days, whereas non-Jewish children had 10. As the temple celebrates its golden anniversary, historian Mrs. Weinfeld says, The mindset in Naples has changed, and anti-Semitism is all but gone. In the early 1980s, Naples 400 or so Jewish residents were making a positive difference in the community with their involvement programs like Meals with Wheels, the Church Women United day-care center in Immokalee, the Pilot Club and many others. Temple Shaloms community outreach remains strong today. Members assist Kids Against Hunger, the Shelter for Abused Women & Children, Humane Society Naples, Jewish Family Services and the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida, among others (the latter celebrated its 10th anniversary last month). The youngest members are taught early on to be community-oriented.

Other rabbis each served a few years at the temple, including Rabbis Mark Golub, Alan Tuffs and Seth Phillips, and Willie Birnbaum (also as cantor) until 1993. Rabbi Adam Miller, the temples religious leader since 2010, has a degree in philosophy and was ordained by Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in 2003. His past experience includes fostering Jewish-Christian relations as well as Jewish-Muslim dialogue. We stand on the shoulders of those before us, Rabbi Miller says. As a reform congregation, we foster relationships, community building and work to repair our world. He welomes interfaith connections. Temple Shaloms services and programs are bursting with music led by Cantor Donna Azu since 2010. A Persian Jew whose family is from Mashadi, Iran, Cantor Azu warms the room with her presence. Her passion for music is evidenced in her voice. Music involves feelings that the spoken word cant say, she says. We pray and sing with you; its not a performance everyone feels connected; they are engaged. Before joining the temple, Cantor Azu was educated as a teacher and musician in New York and California, where she sang professionally with Opera Pacific, Long Beach Opera and the Los Angeles Jewish Symphony. Bill Barnett, former mayor of Naples and current city councilman, moved to Naples in 1973 and has belonged to Temple Shalom since then. The growth of Temple Shalom, from a handful of people in a room to where we are today with more than 500 families, has been an amazing and positive journey, he says. It has made our community a better place. Don Shapiro, current temple president, is not surprised by the temples growth. We purposely look for younger people to help us grow and further our mission, he says. We continue to broaden the Jewish community.

Lenten Soup for the Soul lunch programs through Lent adds, depends on two things: First, a growing economy once again will cause a renewal of the influx of people coming to Naples. And second, our ability to attract our fair share of them as well as those unaffiliated Jews already living here. Only the second is within out control. The temples recent Community Fun Day for members and their families included a variety of childrens activities while the adults enjoyed music and refreshments from Shalom Caf. On Friday evening, March 16, a special Shabbat service will be held to honor the temples history, its founding families and past presidents. On Saturday, March 17, the Golden Gala will commemorate the Temple Shaloms 50 years in Naples with dinner, lively entertainment, dancing and a silent auction at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples. The entire community is invited. In Naples, people come from somewhere else, Rabbi Miller reflects. They look to connect with others. Our members are about building personal relationships, and we will continue to build the human connection throughout the community. As the Jewish population continues to grow, Collier County now offers its residents and visitors additional synagogues: The Naples Jewish Congregation and Beth Tikvah in North Naples, and Chabad Jewish Center of Naples. Marco Island is home to the Jewish Congregation of Marco Island. With more than 300 members, JCMI celebrated its 30th anniversary last month, honoring the congregations founding members with a grand event held at the Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort.
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA38 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2012 HEALTHY LIVINGA mom whos been there offers advice about managing a high-risk pregnancyEvery year, 1 million U.S. women with high-risk pregnancies are placed on bed rest to protect their developing babies. Despite that, every year, about 500,000 newborns one of every eight arrive too early, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Enduring a high-risk pregnancy can be an overwhelming experience of stress, fear and unknowns, leading to more questions than answers. Many of these moms adhere to strict regimes of bed rest; face major changes in lifestyle and relationships; and are subject to dozens of doctor visits and even surgery or medications to protect their unborn children. For them, birth might not be the joy-filled event most families expect. Knowing those feelings all too well, research scientist Kelly Whitehead wrote High-Risk Pregnancy: Why Me? Understanding and Managing a Potential Preterm Pregnancy, backed by fetal and maternal medicine specialist Dr. Vincenzo Berghella. Ms. Whiteheads first child died following his premature birth. During her next pregnancy, she spent 4 months in bed worrying over and trying to protect her daughter. Her books is both a medical reference and emotional support for mothersto-be. In it, she also shares coping strategies she discovered, along with what shes learned through benefit of hindsight and insights from other mothers. Among her pointers: Try to enjoy being pregnant. Dont miss out on this experience because youre high-risk. Do the normal prego things, even if you have to modify them: Shop online, get a belly cast, shoot expanding-belly photos and savor those kicks and body changes. Dont forget or stop dreaming about the actual birth and your desires for what it will be like. I regretted missing out on so much while carrying my daughter. Rather than enjoying the pregnancy, I kept focused on the end and my hope she would survive. Dont let your emotions become your enemy. Say goodbye to guilt. This is not your fault! Its OK to be bitter, angry and upset at the world, and to hate normal pregnant women, but it isnt going to change anything. So go get mad, yell, cry and then move on. Pelvic rest sounds easy, but it isnt. There are still ways to enjoy intimacy; you just need to get creative. Think high school (remember how much fun necking was?). Try body oil, a massage, sexy lingerie. Flaunt your new assets (theyve surely gone up a cup size or two). Ask and you shall receive. It may sometimes feel as though people have forgotten about you, but the reality is theyre busy and they have no idea whats its like for you. If you want company, reach out and invite someone over. I know its tough to be going through a high-risk pregnancy and living in fear every day, Ms. Whitehead says. Though this will be the toughest time of your life, many of us have been through it and now have our children. You can, too. Healthy babies are born every day to families whove walked the same path.

Whats with all the red tape in health care?As CEO of Physicians Regional Healthcare System, one of the most common questions I receive from members of the community revolves around the publics perception of the increasing amount of red tape that seems to have become a part of every patients health-care experience. Yes, over the past several years patients have signed more forms and been exposed to more on-site signage alerting them to the addition of or changes to the legal, procedural and administrative sides of medicine. All of this extra crossing of ts and dotting of is is not an attempt to hinder the patient experience, however; as mandated by federal and state governments, every addition or change is put in place to benefit each patient. Whether its safeguarding your medical history or your credit card information, all federal guidelines are there to protect you, the medical consumer. The primary organization that regulates the medical industry is the Federal Department of Health and Human Services, which houses most of the agencies that regulate Americas health care. Though it is often up to each individual health-care provider to find both acceptable and appropriate methods for sharing and administering federally mandated guidelines, all these directives assure you that each and every one of your health-care providers is held accountable for its actions regardless of its size or the scope of services it provides. Physicians Regional Healthcare System has a compliance program in place to ensure that clear guidelines are adhered to so our patients, their medical history and their financial information are equally protected. We educate our associates through monthly, quarterly and yearly training to ensure that this happens. In the words of Scott Lowe, our CFO and compliance officer: Ultimately, any compliance program is about doing the right thing. Weve established mechanisms for employees to raise concerns about any compliance issues and ensure that those concerns are appropriately addressed. The most significant health-care privacy legislation came in the form of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, known to most consumers as HIPAA. HIPAA gives you, the patient, rights over your (electronic, written or oral) health information and sets rules and limits on who has access to your proprietary medical information.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2012 A39 Palliative care can mean the world to patients and families The heartbreaking reality of the work we do is that we cant always cure. But we can always care and help relieve suffering. I was reminded of this by the performance over the past holiday season of our palliative care team, which is led by Gwen Kolegue, advanced registered nurse practitioner, and Claire Ralli, MSW. The team demonstrated its abilities, compassion, ingenuity and sensitivity in the case of a 49-year-old man who recently relocated to Naples from Michigan with his wife and three children. The story, shared in a recent letter from the patients family, was related to me by Heather Baker, administrative director of The Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging & Rehabilitation. The man sought a fresh start here after suffering business reversals in Michigan. While beginning to get on his feet again, he was stricken by two severe strokes in early December. He was admitted to NCHs Downtown Campus through the emergency department, and ultimately was cared for on 6 North. This man a father, husband and business owner became a patient requiring a feeding tube for nourishment, total assistance with all personal hygiene and the assistance of two people for any mobility. A consult for palliative care was initiated by the case manager with specific requests for counseling support for the patients wife and children. Ms. Ralli and two chaplains from met with the family and began to provide both psychosocial and spiritual support. Through interaction with the patient and family, it became clear that the patient understood the condition in which the acute episode had left him; he displayed great emotion when his wife and children were discussed. Subsequently, he was admitted to The Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging & Rehabilitation, where concerns arose about rehabilitative prognosis and quality-of-life issues. The familys greatest wish was for the patient to return to Michigan and spend his last days surrounded by family. But money was tight. The family only had funds to get them through the end of December, and there would be no way to pay January rent or pay for their daughters last semester at a local college. They were at their wits end. Kim Milner, R.N. and rehab case manager, arranged a family conference where she and Ms. Ralli facilitated a decision to consult neuropsychology to assess the patients understanding of opting out of a feeding tube. Two local local hospice organizations were consulted about their potential assistance transferring the patient to a Michigan hospice close to family members there. Meanwhile, Ms. Milner arranged with the Air Trek air ambulance company to extend a partially subsidized flight to the patient and his wife. Ms. Ralli also contacted the local college housing department to secure a single-bedroom apartment so that the daughter could finish her final semester. Finally, Ms. Milner arranged for a Family Medical Leave Act allowance for the daughter to stay in Michigan during this difficult time and return to college and her job when she could. After the patient and family, as they wished, were reunited in Michigan, they expressed deepest gratitude for the layers of support extended them by NCH professionals. After only one year of service, our palliative care team has an average daily census of more than 20 patients. It isnt easy to admit that we cannot always cure, but the reality is that our team of highly competent and fiercely compassionate experts helps relieve incurable suffering. For that, our patients are always thankful. Dr. Allen Weiss is the president and CEO of NCH Healthcare System.

Conservancy maintenance building goes for the LEED Gold SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Conservancy of Southwest Florida has achieved LEED Gold certification for the design and construction of a 2,400-square-foot maintenance building on the Conservancy Nature Center campus at 1450 Merrihue Drive. The building is one of six building projects on the campus being submitted to the United States Green Building Council for LEED certification. The five other buildings are still under renovation or construction. All contractors working on the project have achieved or are pursuing personal LEED accreditation. LEED, short for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings. To achieve LEED certification, the design team and the construction manager work together to meet guidelines provided by the USGBC in the following categories: sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, and innovation and design process. The maintenance facility includes a specialized work area, storage, office spaces and restroom facilities. Highlights of its sustainable design elements include fresh-air ventilation, daylight harvesting to supplement artificial lighting, the use of locally sourced construction materials and highly efficient geothermal cooling systems. It was completed at a cost of $250,000. The design and build of the maintenance facility demonstrate that sustainable building practices can be incorporated within a conservative budget and can easily integrate into a variety of commercial design plans, says Curtis Cafiso, director of business operations and technology at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. As an environmental organization, we are focused on how our new Nature Center will operate as a whole our energy use, protecting our water quality, reducing consumption and maximizing renewable resources, Mr. Cafiso adds. We are proud to achieve this certification and it is our goal that our building practices will serve as a model for other commercial projects at a variety of sizes, costs and project scope. The Conservancy green team includes Conservancy of Southwest Florida scientists, naturalists and other staff; Cambridge 7 Associates; Heatherwood Construction; Hole Montes; Keith Predmore Consulting/Neugreen LLC; and L-Architecture. The late Larry Warner served as the original lead architect. While the Conservancy Nature Center is currently closed for renovations, a variety of special programs, including daily cruises of Rookery Bay aboard the Good Fortune II, continue to operate. A phased-in reopening is planned during 2012. Visit www.conservancy.org for more information and updates.

The #1 Bundled Golf Community in Naples!ARNOLD PALMER SIGNATURE GOLF NLCC Community Open House Sunday, March 11, 12-4pmPlease be our Guest, and enjoy The chance to win a FREE round of golf for two!NLCC Features BY GINA SPADAFORI Universal UclickWhen my dogs get older, they get twiceyearly wellness checks. I have come to believe that catching changes and problems early is not only better for my pets, but also for my budget. Recently, after just such an exam, I got the news every petlover dreads: Theres a spot on the X-ray of my 7-year-old flat-coated retriever. The suspicion? Cancer. Yes, Im devastated. But because the problem was caught on a routine checkup when my dog has no symptoms or other problems, theres a good chance its not the death sentence it used to be. Thats because canine cancer is more treatable than ever before, with many dogs living for years after their diagnosis with an excellent quality of life. Of course, its far better to avoid cancer completely, if you can, and here are some ways to reduce the risk: Adopt a healthy dog who fits into your lifestyle. If youre considering a purebred dog, know that cancer hits some breeds more than others in breeds such as golden and flat-coated retrievers and Bernese Mountain dogs, the chances of a dog being diagnosed young with cancer is very high indeed. Mixed breeds can and do get cancer, of course, but in those breeds with elevated cancer risks, the situation is more likely when your dog will get cancer, not if. While reputable breeders are working hard to reduce those numbers, some now believe sweeping change in breeding practices to introduce outcrosses to closed gene pools will be needed in many breeds. Feed your dog a high-quality diet made by a reputable company or a home-prepared diet prepared with the help of your veterinarian. Start with the amount of food recommended for your dog and adjust accordingly with how your pets body responds. Add omega-3 fatty acids (also known as n-3, found in fish oils and other sources) to potentially reduce the risk of developing cancer. Spay or neuter your dog early in life. Spaying and neutering have been shown to be an effective method of preventing cancer. Spaying has a significant effect of preventing breast cancer if it is done before a dog goes into her first heat cycle. Keep your dog fit with regular daily exercise. Eliminate exposure to environmental carcinogens such as pesticides, coal or kerosene heaters, herbicides, passive tobacco smoke, asbestos, radiation and strong electromagnetic fields. Each one of these factors has been suggested to increase the risk of cancer in your dog (and in you). Get regular wellness exams for your pet. Because the earlier cancer is discovered, the more treatment options you have. Yes, I did all those things, and still ... cancer. But I know that even for those dogs who cannot be cured, most who are treated are still able to enjoy an improved, robust life for longer than many would have dreamed possible. In most situations, animals undergoing cancer treatment experience limited to no decrease in their quality of life. Almost all dogs with cancer can be helped, with the assistance of a good veterinary team. That, and money. Which is why I cant tell you how very grateful I am today that I have long believed in and paid for pet health insurance. Because along with the savings Ive set aside for just this sort of veterinary crisis, the decisions Ill be making will be for my dogs quality of life only, and not because I cant afford to treat her. PET TALESThe Big CCancer is never good news, but many pets are now living longer and living better While any dog can be diagnosed with cancer, breeds such as the beautiful Bernese Mountain dog are far more susceptible than others.

Along the Gulf Coast, from Englewood to Marco Island, hoteliers, restaurateurs and tourism officials are pointing to numbers that indicate a strong 2012 tourism season. And Charlotte County, a seemingly minor player, led the pack in December with a 26 percent increase in bed tax collections. I think its a happy time for the entire Gulf Coast, says Lorah Steiner, executive director of the Charlotte Harbor Visitor & Convention Bureau. We had higher growth in December than larger cities up and down the Gulf Coast like Tampa, Fort Myers and Sarasota. Unfortunately, because we are a smaller destinatnion, it was $20,000 in bed tax revenue, but were happy. At the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island, Lee Countys second most popular natural attraction (the beaches are No. 1), Tarpon Bay Explorers has added more guided kayak and tram tours.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2012 We are a direct lender offering the following loan products: Making dreams come true... SW Floridas Fastest Growing Mortgage Bank! This week marks an equity market three-year anniversary; it has been three years since the bear decline of 2008-2009 ended and an equity market and economic recovery began. Seems like only yesterday that the horrific decline in U.S. equities was in full force. But here we are some three years later, looking at an S&P at 1366 12 percent below intra day peak levels on March 24, 2000 at 1552 and 13 percent below intra day Oct. 11, 2007 levels at 1576. For some, it is only 11 percent to 13 percent below those peaks; for others, it is a reality of a lost decade as it is still below those peaks. The S&P index is a capitalization-weighted index of the 500 largest publicly traded U.S. stocks. The index also gives insight into the level of earnings expected for this elite group of companies and the multiple that the market participants collectively are willing to pay for those earnings. The index can also be looked at as the product of: the upcoming years consensus earnings for the companies comprising the S&P 500 (which consensus is an average of strategist/economist forecasts for earnings whether good or bad in their forecasts) times the multiple that investors are willing to pay for those earnings. The S&P at the beginning (to middle) of a new year is valued/stated on the current year forecasts (or forward earnings); at the end of a year, the S&P valuation is generally looking at the next years forecasts. So, right now (at the beginning of a new year), the focus is on consensus for earnings for 2012 and, at $107 in forecasted consensus earnings, the multiple being paid is 13 times (or the S&Ps current price level of 1366 divided by $107 equals 13). Changes in the S&P value can imply either a change in consensus earnings or a change in multiple, or both. Which of the two (earnings or multiple) are more powerful in driving stock prices higher or lower? In my opinion, multiples are much more important; they reflect risk appetite. Lets consider the range of multiples implicitly assigned to consensus earnings for S&P equities in the past 25 years (in this case, we are looking at the past actual earnings to figure the multiples.) The range in multiples was huge: a low 12-13 multiple in the late 1980s expanded to high 20s in both 1998 and 2000. You might recall euphoria in 1998 before the Long term Capital Funding collapse and in 2000 before the tech bust. In a bull market, there is generally a good fundamental story (growth in consensus earnings) which is then translated into a turbo-charged multiple. Sure, earnings forecasts are rising, but multiples are often rising much faster. Some might be surprised that the 2008-2009 bear market did not produce a multiple to S&P earnings lower than the current multiple. Yes, stocks tanked some 57 percent, but so did reported earnings so much more so; the net result in 2009 was that historical multiples did not get as low as they are currently. Do the swings in multiples really make sense? In a fundamental sense, not always; in a technical sense, yes, the swings reflect markets feeding on themselves, often establishing price trends. From my perspective, the big story behind the 1990 bull market was not the underlying positive fundamentals; rather, it was the willingness of the market participants to pay higher and higher multiples for the consensus earnings forecasts. History is all well and good, but what about the now? It certainly seems as if it is more probable that multiples can expand from what is a 25-year low water mark and the bull can continue and S&P stocks have a dividend yield of 2 percent and increases expected this year versus the .3 percent yield for the two-year Treasury and .9 percent yield on five-year Treasuries. And that barely scratches the surface of reasons why the bull market can continue. The concerns that some technical folks have is that the advance decline line (number of stocks advancing versus number retreating) and the Summation Index (a measure of stock market breadth) are not looking pretty; they look as if prices are going higher but with fewer stocks attending the bull market party. And, most previous bull markets on average have had difficulty getting past the 39-month mark; we are now at 36 months. But there is no end to what the central bankers can and are willing to do these days to keep the rally intact.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2012 THE MOTLEY FOOL Balance Sheet BasicsA balance sheet is a snapshot of a companys financial condition at a single point in time (typically the end of a fiscal quarter or year). For your own personal balance sheet, youd list all your assets (house, car, savings accounts, etc.), subtract your debts and obligations (mortgage, car loan, credit card debt, etc.), and end up with your net worth. Companies essentially do the same thing, and you can evaluate their financial strength by studying balance sheets. The balance sheet has three main parts: assets, liabilities and shareholder equity. Assets are set equal to or balance liabilities and shareholder equity. But oddly enough, some assets can be bad and some liabilities can be good. Heres why. In assets, youll find items such as cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments, reflecting how much available gunpowder the company has. These assets are good, but other assets are not as good. Accounts receivable, for example, is money from What Is This Thing Called The Motley Fool?Remember Shakespeare? Remember As You Like It? In Elizabethan days, Fools were the only people who could get away with telling the truth to the King or Queen. The Motley Fool tells the truth about investing, and hopes youll laugh all the way to the bank. Considering Highs and LowsQIs it good to buy stocks trading near their 52-week lows and to sell ones trading near their highs? G.J., Mobile, Ala.ANever focus on just a stocks price. If a companys stock is trading near its all-year low, it might indeed be a bargain thats facing a temporary problem but it might also be headed even lower, facing long-lasting troubles. Further research can help you decide whether its a good candidate for your portfolio. Selling a stock at its all-year high isnt always smart, either. Many wonderful companies have rewarded shareholders for decades, setting new highs frequently, despite occasional bumps in the road. By selling, you miss out on future gains. Try to determine what a stock is really worth. Buy when its significantly underpriced and sell when its overpriced. ***QWhats the Rule of 72? E.W., Jackson, Mich.AIts a quick and easy way to check how long it will take money to double at various rates of growth. Imagine that your investment is earning 4 percent in interest annually. Take 72 and divide it by 4, and youll get 18. The rule tells you that it will take roughly 18 years for you to double your money. If you expect to earn 10 percent annually, youll double your money in about 7.2 years. The rules results arent precise, but theyre pretty close for growth rates up to about 15 percent and arent too far off even at 25 percent. The rule works in reverse, too. If you want to double your moolah in six years, just divide 72 by six and youll see that youll need an average growth rate of roughly 12 percent. Got a question for the Fool?

Inventory reports how much product is in various stages of preparation. Its cash tied up in materials that havent been sold yet. Other balance sheet assets may include investments, prepaid expenses (items such as insurance that are paid ahead of time), and property, plant and equipment. Liabilities are likely to include shortterm (also called current) debt and long-term debt. Debt is not necessarily bad, although its best to not see much. In a sense, debt can be considered an asset, as it often represents cash that the company is putting to work. Ideally, its increasing the companys value. Accounts payable represents invoices not yet paid. These can also be good, as they may reflect a company delaying payment until due and using the money in the interim. Finally, shareholder equity is the portion of the company that stockholders can claim. Simply put, its the difference between assets and liabilities. More on this next week, when well also discuss what you should look for on a balance sheet. Empty ShellEarthShell made biodegradable plates, bowls, etc., for the fast-food industry and others. Its products were used by some of our national parks and McDonalds, not to mention numerous colleges. It won awards for being environmentally sound. But as a company it has been a flop for me, costing me thousands of dollars. It was a recommendation from a good friend and seemed like a very good product, so I was baffled by its poor performance. Then again, I didnt know much about the company. It was a purchase I made in my pre-Fool days. K.M., onlineThe Fool Responds: Its never enough to just have a terrific product. Sometimes competitors can easily copy it. And even if they cant, the product might not catch on as expected. A company can also burn through too much cash before turning the corner into profitability. EarthShell lost $331 million over 14 years before filing for bankruptcy protection in 2007. When it filed, it listed $16,176 in assets and $11.9 million in debt, and its stock was trading for pennies per share. The Motley Fool TakePfizer Looks to Kidneys2012 is shaping up to be a patent nightmare for most of the largest pharmaceutical companies. Nearly $29 billion in annual sales are at risk as patents are set to expire on some of the worlds best-selling drugs including Pfizers (NYSE: PFE) Lipitor, the worlds bestselling drug that lost patent exclusivity in November and is responsible for 15 percent of Pfizers third-quarter global sales.

Under normal circumstances, a new drug approval might be cause for celebration. But kidney cancer is a brutally overcrowded field, with seven drugs having been approved since 2005. Of those seven, five are a primary line of treatment, including Pfizers own Sutent. Pfizer is also up against Novartis Afinitor as a second-line kidney cancer treatment. Meanwhile, the market for kidney cancer simply isnt that large. Treatments and cures are needed, of course, but theyre not likely to make drug companies very rich. Whether Inlyta will contribute much to Pfizers bottom line depends on whether its approved as a first-option treatment. (Motley Fool newsletters have recommended shares of Pfizer and Novartis.)

If they still have a job, theyre doing the work of 10 people, and taking breaks whenever they can. During the third week of February every room was pretty much sold out. As high season sets in generally from Presidents Day weekend to the end of April booking windows are also lengthening. Last year, people would call Monday and come Tuesday, says Jason Parsons, general manager of the 317-room Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club. This year, theyre booking a little more in advance. Were already in the upper 80 percent for March, which is always our best month. Mixed in with the good news is the anomaly of fewer flights in February that has stymied officials at the Naples Municipal Airport, which accommodates private planes. January was a good month. We were up in operations by 2 percent and by virtue of our services on the ramp, sales were up 5 percent, says Ted Soliday, executive director of the Naples Airport Authority. February was unbelievably down. Were really trying to study it and figure it out. Since Presidents Day weekend, which is usually one of our highest weeks, boy, it just fizzled compared to last year, and last year wasnt all that good. Mr. Soliday expects a stronger March, when CEOs and other private jet passengers fly in for yearly corporate retreats, meetings and conferences. At Docs Beach House, a gulf-front restaurant on Bonita Beach, business is about the same, says Lou Bangert, general manager. Were doing fine. That consistency and can likely be attributed to the 24-year-old landmarks location adjacent to a public beach and its status as the only beachfront restaurant along this stretch of Hickory Boulevard. Unlike other tourist-dependent businesses in Southwest Florida, Docs season doesnt end come Easter. Mr. Bangert says customer numbers a healthy mix of locals and visitors start increasing Christmas Day (Docs is open 365 days a year) and remain strong through May 1. Were fortunate because of our location, he says. People come here and rent homes for two to three months. Weve had a lot of repeat customers throughout the years. The improved outlook is also allowing hoteliers to charge more. The average daily rate for SunStream Hotels & Resorts, which operates seven properties in Cape Coral, Fort Myers Beach and Naples, has increased $15 and overall business is up 15 percent a combination of those higher rates and higher occupancy levels, according to Michelle Phillips, the companys spokesperson. Mr. Parsons says rates at the Naples resort were up by about $6 in early March a positive sign as long as occupancy hits 90 percent in March. Those two factors are crucial for any hotel to survive. If you dont do well in February, March and April you arent going to be in business, he says. You have to get occupancy at 90 percent and a healthy daily rate in March. Last years rate wars were hurting our profitability. Were not where we need to be, and the situation is still not good for hotels, but we are finally going in the right direction. Expenses for hotels continue to increase and you have to increase revenues along with it. Were thankfully getting better. The propertys occupancy rates have improved to 2008/2009 levels but still lag behind numbers generated in 2007, before recession started to set in nationally. We had a darn good February, and March is looking good, says Mr. Parsons. We even picked up nicely in November with both domestic and international visitors. Its still going to take another two to three years to return to the profitability of 2007. Research from Ms. Modys office shows nearly 75 percent of Collier Countys hotel rooms were occupied in January. Annual occupancy numbers are also on the rise, increasing from nearly 60.8 percent in 2009 to an estimated 66.6 percent in 2011. About a third of Naples December visitors were firsttimers, and Ms. Modys says visitors are also spending more.Where theyre coming fromSouthwest Florida has long attracted vacationers from the Midwest and Northeast and in March families with school-aged children tend to travel here to visit with grandparents or enjoy a beach vacation. This time of year our guests are from the Midwest, Northeast, Canada and Germany, says Ms. Phillips. Because our properties offer condostyle accommodations, we often see both couples and families, whether it is spring break, the holidays or just a getaway. Ms. Schnapp can pinpoint her exact demographic weekly, based on her 10-year history of reviewing kayak and fishing charter rental ticket. We have whats known as Illinois Week and New Hampshire Week, she says. In Charlotte County, Michigan and Ontario are huge markets for us. We also know we have a strong instate component, which keeps us healthier all year round, says Ms. Steiner, who recently met a Miami couple visiting downtown Punta Gorda. If the trend holds the way is has, we could be looking at $80,000 to our bottom line this fiscal year. The Naples Beach Hotel is seeing an increase in visitors from New York and Boston, says Mr. Parsons. Most will stay six to eight days; some guests annually book two to four months.Vital to the local economyTourism is important to a healthy economy in Southwest Florida a fact Ms. Steiner says local residents should keep in mind when frustrated by increased traffic and longer waits at a favorite restaurant. Tourism underpins everything in Charlotte County, she says. Its our No. 1 industry. If you took away our visitors, my guess is wed lose 50 percent of our restaurants and a larger percent of our specialty retailers. We need to value them for what they bring to us. In Lee County, one out of every five residents is employed in tourism, serving five million visitors, who annually generate $2.4 billion into the local economy. During its October 2010 to September 2011 fiscal year, the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau collected a record $24.2 million in bedtax revenues. Tourism agencies use bed tax monies to fund marketing and advertising campaigns to lure tourists to Southwest Florida. The economic impact of tourism in Collier County in 2010, the latest numbers available, was $1.16 billion. Although budget woes forced Ms. Steiners office to cut research collection in 2009, the increase in bed tax revenue and reports of a 21 percent increase in rates charged by the areas hotels are strong indications that tourism numbers are up in the county. Of course, we dont know what will happen as gas prices increase, she says. That could be a huge drag on tourism. During high season, air travel is the top means of transportation to Southwest Florida, and passenger numbers at local airports indicate a healthy increase in passenger counts. Passenger numbers continue to improve at the Charlotte County Airport, where two airlines offer a collective 12 flights to the Midwest and Northeast. Last year 291,626 passengers flew into the airport up from 182,423 in 2010. In January, nearly 34,000 flew into the Punta Gorda facility, compared to nearly 29,650 in January 2011. From December 2007 through December 2011, the airport has served 728,175 passengers, and has an economic spinoff of $141.3 million, according to a March 2010 study by the Florida Department of Transportations aviation office. Naples Airports economic impact was $273 million, compared to the granddaddy, Southwest Florida International, with a $3.76 billion impact. Local tourism-dependent businesses remain hopeful of increased visitor and customer counts this season. There seems to be an uptick in our destination overall, says Ms. Modys. Were having an awesome season. Our business is definitely up and that can be attributed to the beautiful weather here in Charlotte County, says Tammy Beck, general manager at Harpoon Harrys, a restaurant and sports bar in Punta Gordas Fishermens Village. Were looking at business as strong as 2006 when we had good years. This is the busiest its been in a while and we just hope our seasonal people stay down here longer and enjoy Florida.

Premier Sothebys reports $1.7 billion in sales for 2011Premier Sothebys International Realty charted sales of more than $1.7 billion through the end of 2011, an 18 percent increase over the previous year. Judy Green, president and CEO, announced the numbers. According to the most recent Real Trends 500, Premier Sothebys International Realty enjoys the highest average sales price of any brokerage in the state. Last year, the firm was involved in half of all sales in Naples over $10 million. The company has more than 450 associates and in 2011 opened new locations in Sanibel-Captiva Islands and Clearwater. Another office is set to open this month in Lakewood Ranch near Sarasota. Ms. Green attributes the firms growth and strong sales to various factors, among them the stabilization of the market and consumers becoming more confident in the real estate market than the stock market. People are taking stock in Naples real estate, she says. Inventory numbers from the Naples Area Board of Realtors speak to the trend and indicate a decline of supply from the March 2008 peak of 37.6 months of inventory to a current supply of 9.6 months. The optimism that began in earnest last year is being carried over into the new year, Ms. Green says. 1443 MARLIN DRIVE, ROYAL HARBOR A great time to buy ... A great place to live ...

But in presenting Red, the 2010 Tony Award-winning play about abstract expressionist Mark Rothko, Florida Repertory Theatre staffers faced a set of unique challenges: Not only did they have to transform the stage into an artists studio, but they had to create artwork that would look similar to Rothkos, yet not be reproductions. And the actors in this two-man play also have to do a credible job of painting on stage. Bill McNulty, who portrays the late artist, confesses hes hardly ever held a paintbrush in my hand.

Naples BayPort Royal The Gulf of Mexico Per person. Not valid on Holidays or Specialty Cruises. Expires 3/18/12.$5 Off Ive noticed an alarming trend in mens facial hair recently: theres a lot more of it. The overgrowth started a few years ago when the Don Johnson look first made its comeback. Men were showing up with five oclock shadows at nine in the morning, and they embraced a permanent state of scruff that made them look like theyd just come off a hard drunk. Their cheeks felt like sandpaper, but I have to admit: There was something sexy about the rugged unkemptness. But this latest trend in mens facial hair fashion goes too far. Im talking about the growths men are sporting these days the mustaches and beards that make them look like they just came out of the woods. And not from an overnight camping trip, but from a survivalist stint that ran three months too long. Their beards are untidy, sparse in places and overly thick in others, as if theyve never encountered a pair of scissors. Or, God forbid, an electric trimmer. Im always sure those beards are hiding something pieces of string, bits of scrambled egg, small dogs or young children. I spent Saturday night at a bar downtown in a dimly lit space where the young crowd likes to congregate. It was the kind of place where the women wore $100 sweaters meant to look like they came from a second-hand store and the men had on Im-not-wearingthis-ironically ironic berets. This is how I know Im getting older: when I look at the generation currently au courant and think, God, they look awful. I surveyed the young women in their frumpy hipster clothes, their bright red lips and hair that looked like it hadnt been washed in weeks, and I noticed one sitting in the corner just as she reached up to pull the face of the man next to her down for a kiss. He wore a p laid button-do wn and black square-framed glasses, the de facto uniform of male writers and graphic designers (men who work from coffee shops). He also sported a thick black beard. I wanted to turn aside but couldnt. I stared as the woman worked her fingers into the patchy hair on the mans face. I thought of unwashed bodies, day-old grease and the way that guy in college smelled after he stopped shaving and started wearing his hair in dreads. It was all I could do to look away before his beard ate her face. Look, I know the problem lies with me and not with the men embracing this trend. Even Bradley Cooper rocked a bushy mustache and scruffy cheek stubble at the Oscars. If People Magazines Sexiest Man Alive decides to grow out his facial hair, the look cant be all bad. And from what Ive seen in hipster hangouts, theres definitely a contingent of ladies who dig the bearded and mustachioed man, women who cant wait to get their hands literally on the thick knots covering a mans face. But as for me, Ill have to demur. I like my men clean-shaven. Theres something about kissing a man with facial hair that rubs me the wrong way or maybe thats just the beard burn.

Also known as lampwork art, shes been doing it for about nine years now. Mixing and matching more than 200 different color rods of glass, she melts layers and layers to create beads each with a unique look and texture. Fine silver or copper mesh and enamels are often added to the bead for interesting effects. Ms. French says the challenges of learning different techniques and sharing these ideas with her customers is the most fun part of her art from. All types of glasses react differently when melted under a flame, she explains. Theres a lot of metal in glass. Many times you do not know what the final product will look like. Its always a surprise and always exciting. Its a challenge to learn the different techniques, but you build on those techniques each time. She strives to appeal to a variety of customers when she designs her beads. I create pieces with fun and bright Florida colors and others that use very natural and organic colors, she says. Among her favorites are ocean beads that she makes with shells and water details that give her jewelry a beachy feel. This preference comes naturally to her, as she has always lived near the shore and is a self-described beach lover. Really anything to do with the coast is on her list of favorite experiences: fishing, swimming, taking in a breathtaking sunset. A Naples resident since 1979, she moved here from New Jersey. As she can, Ms. French also loves to contribute her talents toward a good cause. She believes in the program Beads of Courage that supports and strengthens the spirits of children coping with serious illness. Through the program, children tell their story using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of courage that commemorate milestones they achieve along their treatment path. Throughout the Naples Art Associations Art in the Park on March 3, Ms. French gave demonstrations of her lampwork techniques. Every bead she made throughout the day was donated to Beads of Courage. In addition to the first-Saturday Art in the Park fairs, Ms. French displays and sells her work at the Naples Artcrafters events on the second Saturday of the month in Cambier Park. Artists Among Us is provided to Florida Weekly by the Naples Art Association, which operates The von Liebig Art Center and serves artists, students, art lovers and fellow nonprofit services through education, festivals, exhibitions and community outreach.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2012 draws that made him want to perform in Red. I saw it on Broadway in 2010 and I thought how fun it would be to do all that painting on stage in front of an audience, Mr. McElwee says. The two practiced painting in rehearsals, miming the action under the guidance of director Robert Cacioppo. Then they visited Florida Reps paint shop. This is the first time where actors have come out to the shop to learn to paint, says scenic artist Erin McCourt. She notes that theres a scene in the one-act show where Rothko and his assistant put the first layer of plum-red paint on a 6-by-6-foot canvas in a minute and a half. She worked with the two, showing them the proper way to hold a paintbrush and the best way to put the base coat onto the canvas. This is more hands-on than I typically am with a play, she says. Mr. McNulty says he and Mr. McElwee have been somewhat surprised by how well theyve done with the painting part of their roles. We manage to splatter ourselves, he says. Mostly, it gets on David, because hes the guy doing the lower part of the painting. Rothko is not a man whos terribly concerned about things like splattering his assistant. David ends up looking like hes been through the war. Its red paint, very effective. Later on, he has a speech about how his parents were murdered, finding them in their bedroom, having been stabbed a lot of bloody images. The paint on him works metaphorically for that speech. A lot of different meanings of red are being explored as the play goes on, one being blood, another being just simply what the color means to painters: Why do you use red as part of a color scheme in a painting?The meaning of redThe play is set in 1958 and 1959, when Rothko was going through a period where red and shades of red were important to his work. The artist was working with red contrasted with black, and the feeling you get from the two colors and from (their) juxtaposition, Mr. McNulty says. You might think of red, for example, as the life force, and black as the encroaching death or abyss, whatever you think happens after life, he explains. Or you may think of red as hope, or as something really threatening, something discomforting, like blood. In addition to the two actors starting a painting, Mr. McElwee, as the assistant, has to construct some canvases on stage, building a frame and stretching a canvas. We recreate a lot of the processes Rothko would use in his studio, he says. I think itll be fun for the audience to see the work that artists do, Mr. McNulty says. Throughout the play we are really quite busy stretching canvases and mixing paint, doing the day-to-day physical work. We even actually prime a canvas. To prime a canvas, he says, you have to move quickly, and get it all done within four or five minutes, before the gesso dries. It has to dry evenly. The audience gets to see (us do) that. I think theres a fascination with watching people work, especially on stage, to see people actually working at something, and (seeing) what goes into the process of anybodys work place. Thats the great thing about being an actor, he adds: In just about any play hes in, he learns something new. Youre going to get an education, youre going to find out how people live or if its an historical play, how they lived. In a play about a painter, youre going to find out what that life is like. A life in the theater is an ongoing education. I feel like I never got out of graduate school; its like I have a seminar every day. It makes life interesting.Set poses challengesFor set designer Richard Crowell, creating the set for Red made life very interesting indeed. The play is specific about what you can and cant represent on stage, he says. I cant try to duplicate the work and show it face-on, he says. It has to be at a pretty extreme angle and at a forced perspective, meaning that the paintings are actually trapezoids, not rectangles or squares. In that way, he explains, it makes both the room and the paintings look larger. Its a trick thing designers do, forcing the perspective, he says. It makes the diminishing point seem a lot farther away than it is. He also had to design a set that looked like Rothkos studio, which was an old gymnasium in the Bowery in New York City. When you walk into the theater, youve never seen it like this, Mr. Crowell says. Im asking them to strip the theater as much as they can, remove all the curtains, all the masking all the things that keep you from seeing backstage. Instead of putting up a gymnasium, were going to let the theater work as his work space. The paintings are suspended on steel hangers. Its a very active play, he says, and the actors sort of help create the space. Throughout the course of the play, you see the space become more and more claustrophobic, as the work compiles around them. The dramatic tension is building, and hopefully, by the end of the play, weve confined the space to help add to that tension. Whats closing them in is more and more of his paintings.Painting the canvasesWritten by John Logan, Red covers the time in Rothkos life where he was commissioned to do a series of paintings for the elite Four Seasons restaurant in the new Seagram building on Park Avenue in New York City. Ms. McCourt, the scenic artist, had to create Rothko-like paintings in a similar style and color scheme to make them believable as paintings from the artists Seagram collection. To prepare, she spent weeks studying his work. Mr. Crowell gave her color swatches and suggestions for how he visualized them, but he wanted her to figure out what I wanted to do to bring to life these giants from these little samples, she says. None of them were straight red. There were maroon tones, pink tones. The idea was interesting: Theres not a single color you would look at and say, Oh, thats the color red. There are shades of red, but straight red isnt anywhere in this show. Painting the canvases was unlike anything shes done for Florida Rep before, she says. Typically, she builds sets creates a characters living room or bedroom, for example. For this show, she adds, she got to spend several days just with the paint and the canvases. Nothing else. I got back to my roots of being a painter more than a scenic artist, she says, adding, This is definitely a show for a painter. If there was ever a show where I felt I got to rise to the occasion, this is the one.Mozart on canvasRothko painted rectangular blocks of color, skillfully using optic techniques. According to Mr. McNulty, If you stand there and let it work on you, those blocks of color will start to move. Youll see them as in motion. Theyll either recede from you, or feel as if theyre coming forward. Youll get this pulsing effect between various colors and shapes. The artist, he says, hopes to communicate emotion with colors, in much the same way that a piece of music communicates emotions with the variations of tone and rhythm. Before rehearsals, Mr. McElwee took a trip to Washington, D.C., to see some of the Seagram murals at the National Gallery. When I walked into the room where they were on display, I had an immediate feeling somewhere between horror and ecstasy, he says. A lot of them look like big mouths. Theyve been compared to tombs. He really used so many layers that they just glow, they come off the canvas. Since I saw Red on Broadway, Rothkos work has really opened up to me. I think theyre just the most beautiful things. Seeing the paintings is like Mozart on canvas.

The style and sensibilities are so different from what passes for musicals today (think the vapid Legally Blonde or the horrible Rock of Ages). Itd be easy to categorize Hello, Dolly! as irrelevant and dusty. Itd be easy to misstep when performing it. But if you see The Naples Players current production of Hello, Dolly! you might be surprised to find yourself wishing you could turn around and see it all over again. And you can, but only if youre lucky enough to already have tickets. The entire run of the musical, which goes through March 31, is sold out. But if you have the time and inclination, its well worth going to the box office two hours before show time to put your name on a wait list. Hello, Dolly! is The Naples Players doing what they do best bringing to life a classic musical. The show, which won 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, is almost 50 years old. Actresses who have played the iconic Dolly over the years include Ethel Merman, Mary Martin, Pearl Bailey and Carol Channing (who originated the role). Debi Guthery doesnt let that faze her. Shes completely at ease, a believable, loveable Dolly for The Naples Players. Shes a self-described meddler or, as Dolly phrases it in I Put My Hand in There: I have always been a woman who arranges things/Like furniture and daffodils and lives. As Ms. Guthery portrays her, the arranging is done out of generosity of spirit, in a magnanimous way. Yes, the widow Dolly Levi is a Jill-of-alltrades, scrambling to get by. Yet shes not irritating or annoying. People look to her to help set things right in their lives. Ms. Guthery is perfect for the role: bold and brassy, yet not overbearing. Her character never falls into being a caricature. And her comedic timing is impeccable, whether shes delivering a funny line or doing a bit of physical humor. She knows how to deliver Michael Stewarts humorous dialogue. (Among other things, Mr. Stewart wrote for Sid Caesars Caesars Hour, which helps explain how Dolly can persuade a man to propose by arguing for exactly the opposite.) Dolly has been hired by half-a-millionaire Horace Vandergelder (Jim Heffernan) to make a match for him but she wants him for herself, despite the fact hes a controlling tyrant as stingy with praise as he is with money. Mr. Heffernan was a last-minute replacement in this production, but youd never know it by his performance. He glowers and growls, and he barks commands that Dolly promptly ignores. And the two show some chemistry at the end. Many shows focus on young love, but this musical has an abundance of widows and widowers, people who have lived a full life, but yet, though their partners gone, refuse to believe life is over. Horace is a widower, and Dolly and milliner Irene Molloy (Jane Armstrong) are widows. Dolly has made a career out of helping others fall in love, but she realizes she also needs to look out for herself. And at the end of Act I, in a great musical declaration, she and the ensemble sing Before the Parade Passes By. In Jerry Hermans wonderful lyrics, Before the parade passes by/Ive gotta get some life back into my life because Life without life has no reason or rhyme left. Its a rousing number that lifts the spirits and invigorates. It includes drummers and four drum majors marking time with big batons, as if each were leading his own parade. Its a number with high stepping and marching, and Ms. Guthery and crew sell it so well, performing it with such exuberance and total unself-consciousness, that you want to join the parade yourself. In fact, this is a larger-than-life musical that many times not only threatens to explode from the stage, but does. In Act I, the entire ensemble rolls off-stage during Put on Your Sunday Clothes. Complete with parasols and plumed hats, they stroll through the middle aisle like a fashion show, showing off their 1890s finery. That move is reprised in Act II when, during the title song, Dolly makes her way across the middle of the theater, waving and nodding to people and shaking hands. Its as if their joy is so large it cant be contained by the stage. (Ms. Guthery has already broken the fourth wall by addressing the audience from time to time.) This is clever and smart staging by director Dallas Dunnagan and choreographer Dawn Lebrecht Fornara. Ms. Guthery and Mr. Heffernan are backed by a fine ensemble. A quartet of characters falling in love with each other is particularly strong. Ms. Armstrong is outstanding as Mrs. Molloy, a widow who wants to fall in love again, as is Laura Needle as her young assistant, Minnie Fay, who harbors the same dreams of romance. Into their lives stumble a couple of men who happen to work for Horace: Cornelius (the irrepressible James Little) and Barnaby (a lively Jake Hanson). Theyre in New York for a night on the town and have declared they wont go home until theyve kissed a girl. These four people are so right for each other that they dont really need Dollys help to fall in love. Mr. Hansons character tumbles about like an overgrown puppy, and Ms. Needles Minnie Fay, bubbly and full of questions, is just perfect for him; Mr. Littles winsome Cornelius is just what the widowed Mrs. Molloy needs. Ms. Armstrong plays her note-perfect, and her wistful solo, Ribbons Down My Back, is moving. (Ms. Armstrong has spent the past couple of years backstage; its good to see her in front of the curtain again.) Theres another subplot with Horaces niece, Ermengarde (Elizabeth Marcantonio), whos in love with Ambrose (Chris Valente), an artist, but they are thankless roles in this musical. Theyre not utilized all that much in the show, and Ermengarde cries and wails basically every time shes on stage. Elaine Hankin and Beverly Cannell also have small roles, but create much humor with their short time on stage.Sets, costumes and moreMatt Flynns sets are appealing, especially Mrs. Molloys charming hat shop. But his two-story set of Horaces shop seems a little too limiting, especially whenever people venture upstairs; the room, smaller than a New York studio apartment, seems crowded with only one person in it. You can tell costume designer Dot Auchmoody took particular delight in costuming these characters. The outfits are all outstanding: lush and colorful, a kaleidoscope of patterns and shades and textures. As always, Ms. Fornaras choreography helps non-dancers look like dancers. The only number that lags is Waiters Gallop, in which the waiters dance and duel with shish-ka-bobs at the Harmonia Gardens Restaurant. While some of the gymnastics and leaping is impressive, the rest of the dancing is lackluster, as though its filler. I wish the wait staff had been a little sharper. Charles Fornara, as musical director, has coaxed some great performances from this cast. The ensemble numbers are strong and the leads solos and duets make you fall in love with the glorious music all over again. And the orchestra sounds fantastic. Ms. Dunnagan has worked miracles in directing this musical. Somehow, she and her actors, with a touch as light as a souffl, transport us back to a simpler, more innocent time. And though you might think Hello, Dolly! is a lightweight musical, it packs an emotional wallop along with its charm. As you sit in your theater seat, you feel great love for these characters. This Hello, Dolly! is irresistibly endearing. Its an old-fashioned term, but in this case it fits like a high-b uttoned shoe: Hello, Dolly! is simply grand.

YesDr. Seuss The Lorax, much like the Happy Feet films before it, has all the subtlety of a hammer to the skull. Yes, environment-friendly themes are important to impart on impressionable young minds, but its so overbearing that its hard to enjoy the animation, songs and sweet story. In Thneedville, everything is made of plastic, and a corrupt but miniscule businessman (Rob Riggle) provides the fresh air. The residents accept this, except for teenager Audrey (Taylor Swift). She longs to see a real tree, which means 12-year-old Ted (Zac Efron) knows what he has to do to impress her: find a real tree. After some advice from Grandma (Betty White), Ted ventures outside of the enclosed, prison-like Thneedville and encounters the Once-ler (Ed Helms), a monster-like recluse who lives at the top of a booby-trapped tower. The Once-ler tells Ted how he got there and why (by destroying trees), and as we flash back we meet The Lorax (Danny DeVito), the guardian of the forest whose job is to stop idiots like the otherwise likeable Once-ler from destroying nature. What will kids learn from this? Trees provide air, life, color and beauty. Just think about cutting them down and youre greeted by a grumpy, bright orange oompa loompa like The Lorax, whose mustache alone demands attention. Cut them down anyway and the world will be full of darkness and despair. And if youre the Onceler, your sentence for destroying nature is purgatory in a tower with a Howard Hughes level of freak-dom. Oh, and big business is bad. Could somebody please tell directors Chris Renaud and Kyle Balda that their target audience of little kids barely understands the value of a dollar? There no doubt will be parents who find the movies message ridiculous. Businessmen whose lives depend on desire for a product are demonized, even if in reality the economy needs their income as well. But Im not here to judge the merits of the films message, let alone delve into a socioeconomic discussion. No, my question is far easier: Will your children enjoy the film? In a word, yes. The songs are peppy and upbeat, and although the 3D animation isnt that impressive, it looks very Seuss-ian, which is a good thing. Amusing bits are dabbled throughout, but only a quick moment in which we hear the Mission: Impossible theme can be considered for parents. The action scenes are entertaining, and the voice work is solid. This certainly isnt a bad movie. It is, however, its own worst enemy. Theres nothing here for adults, but children 10 and younger will enjoy it. And who knows? They might even be more environmentally conscious after seeing it. Thats a win-win for the kids, but a zero-sum gain for adults. Act Of Valor (Roselyn Sanchez, Nestor Serrano, Alex Veadov) A team of Navy Seals attempts to rescue a kidnapped CIA agent (Sanchez) and stop a terrorist (Veadov) from attacking the U.S. Starring real (and un-credited) U.S. Navy Seals, the action is appropriately intense and, we presume, authentic. The story falters at times, but this is worth checking out. Rated R.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.Safe House (Denzel Washington, Ryan Reynolds, Vera Farmiga) Young CIA Agent Matt Weston (Reynolds) attempts to keep rogue former agent Tobin Frost (Washington) in custody as they travel through South Africa. The story is predictable, and the action is over-edited to the point of nausea. Rated R. LATEST FILMSDr. Seuss The Lorax >> Dr. Seuss real name was Theodore and his second wifes name was Audrey.

True Neapolitan Pizza and Authentic Italian FoodArt lectures at The von Liebig continue The final two lectures in The von Liebig Art Centers 2012 series are coming up. At 4 p .m. Friday, Mar ch 9, Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor present History/Mystery, a discussion of the evolution of their imagery and the creative process. An exhibit of their photographs, on loan from The Harn Museum of Art at the University of Florida, hangs at The von Liebig March 10-May 5. The artists work side-by-side, layering their respective works with humor, metaphor and emotion. But the similarities stop there. Ms. Taylors work is infused with vivid color, while Mr. Uelsmann works only with black-and-white photography. Their techniques for creating their images differ as well, says Jack OBrien, curator at The von Liebig. Mr. Uelsmann montages or builds his photographs in a darkroom by exposing up to nine different negatives onto a single sheet of photographic paper, Mr. OBrien explains. Ms. Taylor, he adds, assembles her images in layers using her computer and PhotoShop, then prints the completed image with a state-of-the-art inkjet printer. The lecture takes place immediately before the preview reception for the artists new exhibition at The von Liebig. At 4 p.m. Wednesday, Mar ch 14, David Sleeman, director at Winston Art Group, presents A Current Appraisal as a Step Toward the Successful Management of Art as an Asset. Independent of any auction house or dealer, Winston Art Group specializes in confidential appraisal services and advice on the acquisition or disposal of all fine and decorative art, jewelry and collectibles. Mr. Sleeman served as senior vice president of business development for nine years at a New York art advisory firm. Prior to that, he was fine art specialist and appraiser at Chubb Insurance Company in London. He started his career in the valuation, tax and heritage department of Sothebys London. The 2012 lecture series at The von Liebig is sponsored by Mutual of Omaha Bank, Hahn Loeser and Leslie Hindman Auctioneers and WGCU Public Media.

Chaplin: A Life in Concert 8 p.m. Friday, March 9 Critically-acclaimed and award-winning performer/composer David Pomeranz brings his popular Chaplin: A Life in Concert show to BIG ARTS Tickets are general admission $42, loge $47 and children 17 and under $15. Chaplin, with music and lyrics by Mr. Pomeranz, is a multimedia dramatization of the life story of the brilliant and controversial artist Charlie Chaplin. The show opens backstage as Mr. Chaplin is to receive an honorary Academy Award. Having been falsely accused of being a Communist and banned from reentry into the U.S. 20 years earlier, Mr. Chaplin is both bitter and afraid. He recalls how his early childhood on the impoverished streets of London lead to his creation of one of the worlds most iconic characters and his ultimate legacy, The Little Tramp. Great American Songbook revivalist Michael Feinstein says, Part concert; part stage musical, Chaplin: A Life in Concert is an imaginative, emotional and inspiring journey that leaves the audience walking on air, humming its tunes, and in love with the artistry of the great Chaplin. The score is a knockout touching, clever, theatrical wonderful! Guests will be Hung exhibit Reception from 5:30-7 p.m. Friday, March 9. Exhibit through Thursday, March 29.

Go Incognito and go home with an original piece of artTwo-hundred international, national and local artists are creating 200 original 8-by-10-inch pieces of work for Incognito, a raffle organized by the Friends of Art at the Patty and Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art. Beginning at 4:30 p.m. Monday, April 2, 200 guests who hold raffle tickets will vie for the paintings they want to take home without knowing the identities of the artist who created them. Everyone purchasing a raffle ticket will go home with a work of art. As each raffle ticket is drawn, the ticket-holder will select the painting of his or her choice. Each work will be signed on the back so the identity of the artist will be known only after it has been selected. The fun of Incognito also includes music, cocktails and hors doeuvres, and many of the artists will be in attendance. Only 200 tickets will be sold. The cost is $300 for one ticket, $500 for a patron ticket that includes a $200 tax deduction, or $1,000 for a sponsor ticket that includes two raffle tickets and a $400 tax deduction. Additional admission tickets are $50 per person. Patrons and sponsors will be invited to a mimosa reception and preview of the paintings at 11 a.m. on Sunday, April 1. All proceeds will benefit the Naples Museum of Art to help underwrite gallery exhibitions, educational programs and lectures. To purchase tickets, call the Philharmonic Center for the Arts at 597-1900. For more information about the fundraiser, call the Friends of Art office at 254-2776. These original paintings are among 200 that will be raffled off at Incognito. The creators remain anonymous until the paintings are chosen as raffle tickets are drawn.

The modern celebration on March 17 is a religious holiday in Ireland, with church in the morning, then a parade and dancing, eating and drinking later in the day. American collectors are beginning to look for decorations and memorabilia from St. Patricks Day, often to join their more popular Christmas and Halloween collectibles. Get started on a St. Patricks Day collection before it gains on the other holidays. Look for green, the holidays color. From about 1910 to 1930, holiday candy containers were made in Germany out of cardboard or composition. A green pig, an Irishmans head topped by a traditional hat, and children dressed in Irish costumes were popular shapes. There are many St. Patricks Day postcards from the 1910s and 1920s, too, and Avery Dennison and other companies made green crepe paper and cutouts for holiday tables. In the 1920s, the Japanese also made St Patricks Day memorabilia featuring the traditional shamrock, leprechaun and pipe. More recent holiday pieces include a red-haired Irish Madame Alexander doll, a green Fenton glass set of bears with bowties and shamrocks and even a limited edition Longaberger basket. A 2005 Boston Red Sox green jersey, a Guinness T-shirt, a Franklin Mint sword and a Hamms beer stein all date from after the 1960s. Most of these items are still inexpensive. And most of them will be found not at auctions, but at ephemera shows, garage sales and flea markets. Happy St. Patricks Day. Q: You recently wrote about the dangers of using old baby cribs. Can you explain? I have the one I slept in as a baby in 1942. I have that crib set up for my 10-month-old granddaughter for naps. Is the crib safe?A: Your old crib is not safe. Nearly every crib made before about 10 years ago is not safe. The problems include slats that are too far apart, which can trap a babys head. Slats should be closer than 2 inches apart. Drop sides can crash down and throw a standing toddler onto the floor or trap a baby against the mattress. And many early cribs are covered in lead paint. A child chewing on the rails could swallow paint chips and get lead poisoning. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commissions homepage (CPSC. gov) has a Cribs link that provides all the safety information you need. Some collectors use old cribs to hold dolls or stuffed animals. It is illegal to sell old cribs.Q: Back in 1968, I bought a grandfather clock for $275.

75 inches tall and 19 inches wide. Its marked F. Resch inside and is also signed Resch. The brass ornaments on the case were made in Italy. What can you tell me? A: Your clock was made in Austria by Gebruder Resch (Resch Brothers), a clockmaking firm that operated in Vienna from 1862 to 1871, then in Ebensee, Austria, from 1871 to 1901. Its production peaked in the mid 1880s, when it made 12,000 to 15,000 clocks a year. Today your clock would sell for a price in the thousands. Keep it in good working order. Q: I would like to know the start and stop dates when items were marked Peoples Republic of China, Occupied Japan and U.S. Zone (on German china). A: The presence of a country name on a piece of china helps date the piece. After the passage of the McKinley Tariff Act in 1891, china and other goods imported into the United States had to be marked with the country of origin. However, only one piece of a set of china had to be marked and some pieces were marked with a paper label, which could easily fall off. The mark Made in [name of country] usually means the item was made after 1915. Beginning in 1921, the country name had to be written in English. At the end of World War II, some new marks were used. The words Occupied Japan indicate that a piece was made in Japan between 1947 and 1952, w hen Allied forces occupied the country after World War II. Items marked U.S. Zone were made in Germany between 1945 and 1949, when Germany was divided into four Allied occupation zones. The Peoples Republic of China was established on Oct. 1, 1949, and still is in existence. Tip: Forged glass signatures, including Steuben, Quezal and Tiffany, are appearing on newer glass. This has been true for years. Do not trust a signature. Be sure the glass is the proper shape and type to have been produced by the original factory. Some fake marks are written with a diamond-tipped drill; some are acid-stamped. All look real. Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

History Press. 128 pages. $19.99. Southwest Floridas coastal islands are among the states and the nations most enjoyable treasures. Sanibel and Captiva are particularly colorful in their fascinating histories, their natural beauty and their present-day balance of old and new. Jeri Maggs new book provides a wide array of insights and anecdotes about what makes these places special. Its 50 black-and-white images help engage our imaginations. The authors plan is travelerfriendly. After a concise, general overview of the regions history, Ms. Magg pins her exploration to two maps, one for each island. The maps number and name almost 50 places of interest (sometimes merely crossroads or historic buildings), and the names and numbers then head her larger and smaller narrative treatments. These sections and sub-sections are in themselves organized chronologically. With this book in hand, one can make ones way around the islands and soak up information about colorful personalities and changing times. The history stretches back hundreds of years to a time when the Calusa Indians built shell mounds on the islands, when Spaniards and later Cubans wrestled for influence and dominance. Later, enterprising individuals from around the colonies (and then the states) struck out for opportunities to enjoy and exploit the natural beauties, the fertile soil and the bountiful marine life. Those of us who live in Southwest Florida and other desirable, onceobscure locations know the story of the constant struggle between the forces of conservation and so-called progress, between privacy and exclusivity on the one hand and population growth/development on the other. Ms. Magg presents versions of this paradigmatic story in many of her vignettes. Indeed, the famous lighthouse on Sanibel (that has undergone so many technological changes) can be said to stand for the tension between a place being marked out being put on the map for safety and convenience and a place screaming Notice me! and being overrun. The detailed stories Ms. Magg tells of transportation to and from the islands from private commercial piers to ferry boats to the causeway are filled with this kind of tension. Make it easy to get there and people will come, and then more people will come, and then youre stuck in traffic and surrounded by noises that drown out the ripple of surf and the sea breezes. Stories of postal service, eateries, schools and churches, important homesteads (like that of George W. Carter), agricultural enterprises and resorts come laden with their casts of characters. We learn about Jake Summerlin, lighthouse keepers Dudley Richardson and Henry Shanahan, the Kinzie familys steamship line and postmistress Laetitia Nutt. We enjoy tales of the pioneer families like the Bryants and somewhat more recent families like the Lindgrens, the Matthews and the Baileys. We witness the slow march of technology as it modernizes life on the islands. Nothing will bring back the Algiers paddleboat, perched on land by the Brown family and turned into their unique mansion. Though the paddleboat and the land were later purchased by the city of Sanibel, the boat-mansion was bulldozed in 1982. Although it was considered too expensive to restore and save, Ms. Maggs descriptions make it live again. So with many other structures of the past that have been torn down and replaced. Fortunately, many others have continued to live on, often modified and enlarged over the years. The story of the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is a model of good collective citizenship and stewardship of the past. Every reader will find his or her own favorite passages in this delightful book. I, for one, would have enjoyed more in the way of documented, fresh oral history. However, I am very thankful for what is provided. In her epilogue and bibliography, Ms. Magg affords the curious reader sources for further travels into the history of Sanibel and Captiva islands. t o e s F o philJASON firstname.lastname@example.org Sanibel and Captiva history comes alive in new book COURTESY PHOTOMagg Its high season for clubs and organizations to hold special events and programs for members and guests as well as regular meetings.

You might not agree with Norths opening bid, but theres nothing you can do about that. West leads a heart, which you win with the ace. What should you play next? (Remember, you see only the dummys hand and your own.) It would seem you have no chance to stop the contract unless your side can quickly snatch four club tricks. Dummy has nine practically sure tricks in plain view. So, acting on this basis, you could return a low club hoping to find your partner with three or four clubs to the king (almost impossible in view of Souths one-notrump bid). But observe what happens if you do this. Declarer follows low there is no reason to risk playing the king and West wins the club with the jack. West returns a club to your ace, and the party is over. South makes four notrump. Now lets go back to trick two. Instead of leading the three of clubs, lets say you lead the queen! Of course, South can make the contract by playing the king, but is he likely to do that? He might think you have the Q-J9-x(-x) of clubs and refuse to cover the queen. If he ducks, you continue with the three. What will South do this time? If he thinks you started with Q-J-9-3, he will follow low again, counting on dummys ten to force Wests ace. The contract is then defeated when partner wins with the jack and returns another club. Of course, South might guess correctly and play his king on either the first or second club lead. The important point, though, is that by playing your clubs in the suggested fashion, you give declarer a chance to go wrong. South might get it right, but at least youve given yourself some hope of defeating the contract. CONTRACT BRIDGEBY STEVE BECKERHigh-class defense

VINOSmall wineries produce powerful new winesFebruary is a great time in Florida for finding new wines. The vineyards are quiet, allowing winemakers time to tour the country, showcasing their wines at events such as the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest. This years event raised $2 million for charity. The festival afforded a prime opportunity to try wines from some very small high-quality producers and to hear from the winemakers personally what makes their wines so special. Mike Sullivan is co-owner and winemaker at Benovia Winery, this years Signature Vintner. Like most of the wines at this years Wine Fest, his are made in small quantities and available direct from the wineries. Specializing in pinot noir and chardonnay, he also makes grenache and zinfandel. The zinfandel is made from old-vine grapes grown in the Russian River Valley, Mr. Sullivan told me. We hand select the clusters and then hand sort the grapes to make an expressive and detailed wine that has an elegant structure. Next years Signature Vintner is Husic Vineyards, owned by Frank Husic. Our vineyards are on the side of the mountain, cut into the rock in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley, Mr. Husic said. He explained that because the slope of the land is about 45 degrees, they had to make terraces to have enough land for the grapes to grow. The grapes are stressed and produce low yields of 2 tons per acre, much less than the 9-10 tons per acre on the valley floor, he said, adding the berries are smaller and packed with intense fruit, producing wines that are elegant with balance, finesse and structure. I also spoke with Mike Smith, owner and winemaker of Myriad Cellars and Quivet Cellars, who told me he always enjoyed wine as a collector. In 2000, when he had a chance to work during the harvest with Thomas Brown of Schrader Cellars, he added, I found my passion for making wine. Mr. Smith started making wines in 2005, and his first vintage sold out in five days, he said, adding todays total production is about 700 cases. Im excited about two new vineyards coming on board the Three Twins vineyard and the Pellet vineyard, he said, adding, Its all about location and soils. If you missed this year Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest, allow me to offer you a sampling of some of the wines served: Benovia Zinfandel Sonoma County 2009 ($40): Rich and elegant aromas of black cherry and spice mingle with dark berries, plums and a hint of pepper on the palate and a light tannin finish. Fisher Vineyards Mountain Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 ($50): Dark red in color with blackberry, dark cherry and a hint of spice on the nose, following through to the palate mixed with a touch of chocolate, and finishing with a lush, textured tannin balance. Hall Napa Valley Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 ($48): Made with 84 percent cabernet sauvignon grapes, this Bordeaux-style blend has rich aromas of blackberries, dark fruits and almonds and is followed on the soft palate with dark cherry and jammy flavors leading to a smooth velvety finish. Hall Napa Valley Winery Merlot 2007 ($28): Blended fruit from valley floor and hillside vineyards produces an intricate nose of currants, plums and mint that moves into flavors of cocoa, black plum and spice, with a lingering balanced tannin finish. Husic Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 ($110): Made from the best barrels of the vintage, this big, intense wine has raspberry, chocolate and black cherry on the nose, following through to the palate with an intense and long finish. Husic Vineyards Palm Terrace Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 ($60): Lighter bodied black fruit and spice aromas lead into a soft palate with black cherry and mineral notes, leading to a long finish. Myriad Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Beckstoffer Dr. Crane 2009 ($95): Deep purple in color with rich aromas of blueberry, blackberry and mineral, the resulting full bodied flavors are framed by the finely integrated tannin structure and lingering finish. Quivet Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Kenefick Ranch 2009 ($65): Full bodied with plum and berry aromas and palate, followed by a firm mineral and tannin finish and a touch of oak. Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas Paso Robles 2010 ($20): The newest entrylevel wine from Tablas Creek, this Rhonestyle wine is made from mostly syrah and grenache. Fresh flavors and aromas of black and wild berries make this a full-bodied wine with a complex finish of berry and spice. Madrone Carneros Chardonnay 2009 ($30): Light straw in color and nicely balanced with aromas of citrus and apricot, the palate is full-bodied with apple, honey and tangerine and a long finish. m g a m v s d jimMcCRACKENvino@floridaweekly.com JIM MCCRACKEN / FLORIDA WEEKLYMike Sullivan of Benovia Winery pours wine for Dana Snyder. 2500 Vanderbilt Beach Road Suite 1100Intersection of Airport Rd. in Naples Walk Plaza, Southeast Corner For Reservations please call (239) 596-5600 www.LatitudeNaples.comWe have the right Attitude at Latitude...Live Entertainment Every Day!

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C39 C Level Wine Bar opened in December in the space formerly occupied by C Grape Coffee Bar in the Liberty Bank Plaza on Bonita Beach Road. I dont know the legal particulars of the changeover, but I cant help thinking that C Grape would be a more appropriate name for a wine bar. C Level sounds more like a seafood restaurant. And whats the C fixation all about, anyway? Thats not all I found perplexing about the bar/restaurant. Theres also the mystery of the enigmatic menu and cryptic wait staff. Diners will find few clues as to what theyre ordering on the dinner menu. The short list of specials offers proteins served with chefs accoutrements. As in pan-seared duck breast with chefs accoutrements and baked shrimp with chefs accoutrements. When pressed for more details about the duck, our server/bartender (also the owner, we later learned) merely reiterated that was panseared. When we continued to pry, he retreated to the kitchen and fetched the chef to the table. The Frenchman said it had a mushroom sauce, but offered no further enticement. Why so secretive? At a time when most restaurants are going in the opposite direction listing the source of each microgreen and detailing how the fish was harvested this tight-lipped approach is confounding and a little irritating. Even if theyre merely playing coy so that they can change the dishes based on whim or availability of ingredients, the staff should be able to answer questions that might help sell the dish or dispel dietary concerns. Shrugging off the subterfuge, we sipped wines from the short but interesting bythe-glass list. (More than 100 vintages are offered by the bottle, but I prefer not committing to one wine for a whole meal.) The Clifford Bay Sauvignon Blanc ($9) from New Zealand had a mild citrus edge and grassy lightness; the Two Vines Cabernet Sauvignon ($8) from Washington was surprisingly plush and plummy for the price. The grating pop music that greeted us eventually gave way to more palatable jazzy vibes as darkness fell and the cobalt glow of the bar lighting softened the mood. The modernistic black leather and blue tile dining room is long and narrow with mostly high-top tables (not my favorite for dining). Theres casual seating outdoors in front of the building, but we preferred not to be subjected to the sound and fury and fumes of Bonita Beach Road traffic. The tapas menu is served all day and includes options such as French onion soup, panini, cheese and meat boards and escargot Bourguignon. Wanting to taste a range of items, we settled on sharing the C Level Sampler ($15). This consisted of three small bowls of ceviche, artichokespinach dip and pate served with a basket of hot, b uttery garlic bread. The ceviche contained shrimp and chunks of firm white fish tossed with tomatoes, peppers, red onion, cilantro and lots of lime juice to cook the raw seafood. The result had a clean, fresh flavor with a little bit of kick. The artichoke dip was about what youd expect creamy and mild. The chicken liver pate was surprisingly thin; the chef even apologized for its not having set. The flavor was fine, but the fluid consistency was off-putting. Not knowing if any vegetables would be forthcoming with entrees, we decided to split the 3 Musketeers Salad ($9). The presentation showed some creativity: Separate heaps of crisp romaine lettuce, tender arugula and mixed greens all laced with a light mustard vinaigrette. With a couple of tomato slices and garlic toasts, it made for a pleasing intermezzo. As mentioned earlier, the dinner entrees are limited: duck, pork, shrimp and filet mignon. For a more casual experience, you could order a charcuterie platter ($32) with fancy cheeses and meats, but we had done enough grazing and were ready to see some cooking. But we had a bit more detective work to do. A young woman arrived with the entre plates and proceeded to auction them off, as in Who gets the ? Unfortunately, she didnt know which dish was which, let alone who ordered what. The plates did look rather like twins: medallions of meat laced in brownish sauce, each paired with a few spears of asparagus and a pool of brown lentils. Still, a properly trained server doesnt leave the kitchen not knowing what shes carrying and then, giggling, leave it up to the patrons to solve the mystery. Despite all the ambiguity, the aforementioned pan-seared duck breast ($18) turned out quite well. The meat was juicy and pink, with a thin rim of fat that added flavor. The sauce turned out to be an earthy, herbal mushroom gravy. The lentils were too runny but tasted fine; small mounds of sauted mushrooms and caramelized onions added some extra interest. The roasted pork tenderloin ($18) was served with the same sides and the same foundation of potato slices. A silky greenpeppercorn sauce with a heady hint of brandy complemented the tender, moist pork nicely. The chef returned to our table for a dessert recital (the menu simply says, Desserts, $9): raspberry tart, chocolate cake, sorbets. We settled on meringues with coffee ice cream and chocolate-covered strawberries. The meringues, which the chef said he made himself, were like clouds of airy sugar. Despite all the guesswork, dining at C Level has its rewards. You might have to go hunting for clues, but youll eventually arrive at a tasty denouement.
