www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 On at least two distinct occasions in the history of the United States, the nation found itself equipped to take over the world. The first occurred beginning in April of 1865, at the end of the Civil War. Never in history had so much military power been amassed together with so much experience and effective ability as President Lincolns. He wielded that power only near the end of his life (he was shot on April 14, 147 years ago, and died the next morning). The second occasion occurred at the end of World War II, when an Army general of such magnitude as George Patton suggested we take advantage of our muscle to put down the Soviets. He wanted to wield the Third Army right down their throats, along with everything else we had. That period of unmatched American power arguably stretched into the early 1950s, when Gen. Douglas MacArthur advocated nuking the Chinese. At the time, the Chinese were supporting the North Korean effort to swallow the south. They were belligerent Communists, just like the Soviets. But after that suggestion, Gen. MacArthur (a belligerent democratist) found himself not only in the Korean War but right back out of it, relieved of duty by a stubby, hot-tempered civilian from Missouri with no West Point education and only aging memories of his own service more than 30 years earlier in World War I President Harry Truman. Lincoln and Truman were both hardnosed pragmatists. As presidents, each might well have been asked to consider a variety of muscular military options. Mexico and Canada, for example, could have been ours for the taking in 1865. Germany both east and west, along with eastern Europe and Russia, not to mention China, could have been ours for the taking beginning in 1945 or But Lincoln and Truman understood something some other Americans didnt and still may not: The greatest American weapon of all the greatest strength we had and still have lies not in our sophisticated killing tools or our ferocious ability to employ them and to wage war. Instead, it lies in our ferocious ability to employ and wage peace to play the role of Samaritan or capitalist, not conqueror, even when were both or all. Lincolns greatest general, Ulysses Grant, started the peace war on Lincolns behalf beginning at Appomattox. After Robert E. Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia on April 9, Gen. Grant allowed each man to walk away with his rifle (and a mule or horse if he had one). Truman, meanwhile, waged peace with the immense Marshall plan, providing aid to our former enemies, restoring their economies, and ending their suffering almost on the spot. So in my book, Lincoln and Truman are two of our greatest patriots. As for Lincoln, no other wars have occurred between Americans. And now, 150 years later, societal discrimination based on race is gone. (Yes, it flares up from time to time in individuals, as recent events suggest.) As for Truman, more than 65 years of massive peace has followed World War II, a peace whose aberrations Korea, Vietnam and possibly Iraq have not become world wars and probably should not have occurred at all. They were errors but patriotism does not exclude errors, any more than living or loving does. Patriotism merely excludes the defending of errors out of pride, vanity or jingoism. But what does patriotism include? Leftists, rightists and centrists in America probably agree at least on this: that patriotism requires love, allegiance and defense of country. How we define those qualities, however, varies considerably. Is the United States a geographic location or is it a set of values or both? Does patriotism exclude criticism? Or on the contrary does it require criticism and self-inspection?Whatever it is, we know that any grand plans or philosophies like those of Lincolns or Trumans always come down to individuals on the ground, men and women who get dirty, damaged or dead being patriots. I was reminded of all this last week when I finally met the writer and author Robert Hilliard, now a month or so shy of his 87th birthday. Dr. Hilliard (he earned a doctorate from Columbia University 14 years after World War II) came from New York City to fight as a teenager at the Battle of the Bulge, from Dec. 16, 1944 to Jan. 25, 1945. He survived, unlike 19,000 other young Americans who were alive when that fiveweek horror kicked off. By April, he had been wounded, shipped out and hospitalized in Paris, where he found himself on April 12, 1945, when President Franklin Roosevelt died. In uniform that day, Pvt. Hilliard was surprised and moved by French citizens, many of them crying, who approached and hugged or kissed him, offering consolation for the loss of his president. Then he rode back to his barracks. What moved him the most, he recalled, was the sight of 12 very tough combat veterans, most of them older than him and all of them recuperating from battle wounds, who werent playing cards. They werent shining their boots. They werent writing love letters home, or eating or drinking. Instead, they were crying, too. From Paris, he joined a unit ordered to help disarm the Germans all of which, by that time, would have qualified him as a bona fide American patriot. But Pvt. Hilliard wasnt through being a patriot. Between April and late fall he helped save about 10,000 Jewish survivors of the Holocaust not from Germans but from Americans who neglected them, cutting off the food and medicine they needed unless they were recompensed with favors. All of that is documented, and painful to admit. He stopped it by writing a letter home with 600 copies for all the friends and families he and his pals could contact begging for food and supplies. President Truman ultimately saw the letter, investigated, and ended the abuse. It amounts to this: Two patriots waging peace Pvt. Hilliard and President Truman did what Americans do at their best. They put down the prejudices or callous indifference of their own people, and painted tolerance and charity in red, white and blue.

If getting into a General Motors electric automobile means so much to him, hed better hope he loses in November. What the president dubbed the car of the future in a visit to a Volt plant may not make it to January 2017. The partially government-owned General Motors has suspended production of its governmentapproved miracle car and temporarily laid off 1,300 workers at a Detroit plant. The halt is the result of a piddling detail lost in the gushers of praise for a big bad car company supposedly learning the error of its environment-destroying ways people dont want to buy the damn thing. GM hoped to sell 10,000 Volts last year and only sold 7,500. It planned to sell 45,000 this year and is scaling back production to meet the real rather than the imaginary demand. The Volt is the Solyndra of automobiles, another Obama-touted recipient of government subsidies that was succeeding as a great paladin of the future in all the speeches and press releases until it ran into hard market realities. The Volt is too expensive, too small and too complicated to appeal to all but a tiny slice of what is already a tiny segment of the car market. Hybrids have never been more than about 3 percent of all U.S. sales. To buy a Volt, you need the money to splurge and the exquisite environmental consciousness to think plugging in your car will help save the planet, even though about half of electricity comes from coal. The Volt is as much affectation as car. It costs more than $40,000. At that price, perhaps GM should have made it part of the Cadillac brand rather than Chevy. According to GM, the average income of a Volt purchaser is $175,000 a year. These well-heeled buyers get a $7,500 tax credit for selecting a car out of reach of many Americans, a trickle-up redistribution toward the upper, politically correct end of the car market. Its not that the Volt isnt a fine piece of machinery. It is a smooth ride and has been well-reviewed. But as Henry Payne of The Detroit News argues, the Chevy Volt is basically the electric version of the gas-powered Chevy Cruze. Despite the Environmental Protection Agencys rating that the Volt gets 60 mpg, as a practical matter its more like 35 (it can go less than 40 miles on battery alone and then needs to switch over to gas). Thats comparable to the Cruze, which costs half as much, has greater range, seats more people and is easier to operate since all it requires is a visit to the filling station. GM sells more than 200,000 Cruzes a year. For all President Obamas smug confidence about his vision of the future, he doesnt truly know what car he will be driving in five years. If he stays true to his word, it might have to be a secondhand Volt.

On his way home, with his Skittles and iced tea, the African-American teenager was shot and killed. The gunman, George Zimmerman, didnt run. He claimed that he killed the young man in self-defense. The Sanford police agreed and let him go. Since then, witnesses have come forward, 911 emergency calls have been released, and outrage over the killing has gone global. Trayvon Martin lived in Miami. He was visiting his father in Sanford, near Orlando, staying in the gated community known as The Retreat at Twin Lakes, where Zimmerman volunteered with the Neighborhood Watch program. The Miami Herald reported that Zimmerman was a habitual caller to the police, making 46 calls since January 2011. He was out on his rounds as a self-appointed watchman, packing his concealed 9 mm pistol, when he called 911: Weve had some break-ins in my neighborhood, and theres a real suspicious guy ... this guy looks like hes up to no good, or hes on drugs or something. Later in the call, Zimmerman exclaims, OK. These a--holes always get away. ... (Expletive), hes running. Sounds of Zimmerman moving follow, along with a contr oversial utter ance from Zimmerman, under his breath, considered by many to be (Expletive) coons. The sound of his running prompted the 911 operator to ask, Are you following him? Zimmerman replied, Yeah, to which the dispatcher said, OK, we dont need you to do that. One of the attorneys representing the Martin family, Jasmine Rand, told me: The term coon on the audiotape ... is a very obvious racial slur against African-Americans. We also heard the neighbors come forward and say, Yeah, in this particular neighborhood, we look for young black males to be committing criminal activity. And thats exactly what George Zimmerman did that night. He found a young black male that he did not recognize, assumed that he did not belong there, and he targeted him. Another 911 call that has been released is from a woman who hears someone crying for help, then a gunshot. Eyewitnesses Mary Cutcher and Selma Mora Lamilla both heard the cries, which police say could have been from Zimmerman, thus supporting his claim, even though he had a gun and outweighed Trayvon Martin by 80 pounds. Cutcher said at a press conference: I feel it was not self-defense, because I heard the crying. And if it was Zimmerman that was crying, Zimmerman would have continued crying after the shot went off. The only thing I saw that night I heard the crying. We were in the kitchen. I heard the crying. It was a little boy. As soon as the gun went off, the crying stopped. Therefore, it tells me it was not Zimmerman crying. Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee defended his departments decision not to arrest Zimmerman, then stepped down temporarily. They bagged Martins body and took it away, labeling him a John Doe, even though they had his cellphone, which anyone, let alone law enforcement with a shooting victim, could have used to easily identify a person. They tested Martins corpse for drugs and alcohol. Zimmerman was not tested. Neighbors say that Zimmerman loaded things into a U-Haul truck and left the area. So, while the police have defended their inaction, a democratic demand for justice has ricocheted around the country, prompting a U.S. Justice Department investigation. The Rev. Glenn Dames, pastor of St. James AME Church in nearby Titusville, has called Martins death a modern-day lynching. His demand for the immediate arrest of Zimmerman was echoed by the organizers of the Million Hoodie March in New York City, named after the often racially stereotyped sweatshirt Martin was wearing in the rain when he was shot. The National Association for the Advancement President Ben Jealous, recounting a mass meeting in a Sanfordarea church, quoted a local resident who stood up and said, If you kill a dog in this town, youd be in jail the next day. Trayvon Martin was killed four weeks ago, and his killer is still walking the streets. With his gun. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 Each week, I look forward to introducing listeners to a segment we call Whats New with Boo. Aside from the catchy title, I genuinely look forward to finding out whats on Boo Mortensons mind. In the midst of sometimes-heavy news and commentary, she lightens up the show and always puts a smile on my face. Irrespective of the topic we choose, she finds humor and makes us laugh. Linda and I met Boo and her husband at the home of mutual friends. In our conversation, she mentioned that she had co-hosted a weekly radio show, Boo & Petie, Too, in Madison, Wis. She and Petie, over the course of 16 years, interviewed hundreds of fascinating people, from professional athletes to politicians, professors and tattoo artists. While Boo is an entertaining guest on my show, shes also an accomplished entrepreneur who has made substantial contributions to Madison, Wis., and to the Paradise Coast through her time, talent and treasure. Growing up as an Air Force child, Boo lived in many states and countries with her family. She graduated from the University of WisconsinMadison with a bachelors degree in art history, married and eventually had three sons who were hellbent for mischief. Raising them, she says, prepared her for anything that life could throw at me. Boo was one of the first women in Madison to get her real estate license. In 1986, she left real estate and became a partner in the Perine Art Gallery, which represented more than 85 local and national artists. Through the years, she has served on the boards of numerous companies and nonprofit organizations, from banks to hospital foundations. In 1981, she helped found TEMPO, an organization for executive women that has since gone international. Here in Naples, she is an emeritus trustee on the Board of Trustees of the Shelter for Abused Women & Children. She was also a participant in the Greater Naples Leadership Inc., and the Literacy Volunteers of Collier County. This year, she and her friend Peggy Redlinger started a new program in Immokalee. The Golden Hearts Club is a girls-only gathering where girls can talk, listen, dream, set goals and find the encouragement they need to be anything they want to be. Activities include trips to area businesses PROFILES IN PARADISELeaving a legacy wherever she goes t f M a h f p bobHARDEN e-mail: email@example.com Talking points with Boo MortensonSomething thats been on your mind: What the Middle East would look like if women were in charge. Something your mother was always right about: She told me I had ants in my pants. What makes you laugh: Loren, my husband. I can get that guy to do ANYTHING. Last book you read: Catherine the Great, by Robert Massie. Pet peeve: Waiting in line. Something people might be surprised to nd out about you: I am a high-altitude mountaineer and have summited Mt. Kilimanjaro, an Andes mountain range and Mt. Rainier, twice. Mt. Rainier is a technical climb and regarded as the most dangerous mountain in the Northern Hemisphere. I am also a triathlete. What you are most proud of: Raising three sons who are still talking to me. What the Paradise Coast really needs: A moat around it with a Go Away sign. Favorite thing about the Paradise Coast: Everything. What I miss about the Paradise Coast when Im away: The dear, dear friends Ive made here.owned by women, where the girls meet women who have worked hard to attain their own successes. Its all designed to help young women find their voice, define their goals and dreams and establish a support network so that they can move forward in the world with pride and selfconfidence. Boo Mortenson is great fun to have as a guest on my radion show, but shes much, much more than that. Its easy to see that shell leave a lasting legacy for many in Madison, Wis., and here on the Paradise Coast.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 knees, unfurl shoestrings oh, these kindergartners have a case of the fidgets. How are they supposed to sit still, listen, pay attention, upstairs at the Golisano Childrens Museum of Naples upstairs! when they know that downstairs right downstairs! theres a tree a tree as big as a house. They dont exactly know what else looms below, but they want to touch it all. Anxious, they start to unravel their Indian-style-crossed legs and sit taller now, on their knees. Let me tell you a secret about your grownups, says the adult standing at the front of the class. The little ones lean forward. This is a really big place. And grownups sometimes get lost. Sometimes they dont know their way around, the wise woman whose nametag identifies her as a Curious Kids Manager at CMon tells her pint-sized troops. Always keep your eyes on your grownups, she says, stretching out the word. Always stay with your grownups, keep em safe. The children from Avalon Elementary School look to their teacher, Lisa Hendrix. She has on a purple top and khaki capris. Shes wearing flats, and her blonde hair is pulled back in a ponytail. They know what she looks like. May they line up now, please? Theyve listened to the rules, but theyre 5 and 6 years old theyre antsy and if they dont get downstairs, theyre gonna burst. See, these kindergartners know how to read, theyre falling in love with books, theyve graduated from Sesame Street to The Disney Channel. So how much longer must they wait to join the likes of 10,000 others whove explored the museum since its February opening? OK, class. Line up, some adult says. It doesnt matter who, she said it. They stand up. They clap. They sway. They bend their knees, squatting up and down, up and down. Theyre goofy, theyre eager. What to do with their energy? Down the stairs they go, stepping sideways, not looking straight ahead, but checking out what awaits below: Theres a pier to fish from, a boardwalk to run along, leaves to rake and a tree to climb. Not just any tree, but a banyan, a big banyan 30 feet wide, 45 feet tall, more than 150 limbs, 350 branches and 100,000 leaves. These kids want to climb that tree, and the grownups who built it did so with that in mind, remembering themselves the feeling of whim and wonder.Seasons aplentyBefore CMon opened, its founders asked focus groups to think back to when they were 6 years old. What did they love to do? They loved to climb trees, rake leaves and roll down hills. Done. Next question: What makes Naples and Southwest Florida special? The Everglades, the beach, Fifth Avenue South. Done. Last question: If these focus-group consultants could have anything if money were no issue, space no constraint what in their wildest dreams would they like to see? Their answer: Make it snow. Investing 10 years and $25 million, CMon came as close to snow as it could, and thats where Mrs. Hendrixs class is headed, to Mother Natures House. Theyve stood in line like bulls in a bullpen, stamping their feet, waiting for the gate to open, and soon as they reach this space where they can experience all four seasons, they charge. Straight to Fall, fashioned after Woodstock, Vt., where some contraption shoots red and gold leaves from the top of a tree. Children below, ready with rakes. What does 5-year-old Jenine Reyes see? She spots a pumpkin patch, picks a pumpkin and sticks pieces of black felt on its face, turning it into a jack-o-lantern. I put a face on it, she says. A shy face, though this little ladys anything but shy, pleading like so many of her peers throughout the day, Look at me! Look at me! In the flurry of footsteps, Mrs. Hendrix says, Its so hard to let them go. Its fun, but its hard to be like, OK, go, she turns around, owl-like. Her kindergartners are off and running to Winter, their heads so far in front of their feet. Mrs. Hendrix, they beckon, Mrs. Hendrix Winter has been modeled after Vail, Colo., and since snow was not so plausible at CMon, Winter has been given an igloo, kept at a constant 54 degrees. And though her students squeals and scampering seem to be warming it up, the teacher anticipates the inevitable: Mrs. Hendrix, come in with us! She does. And her youngsters beam with delight. They exit with their lips rolling Brrr and their shoulders all a-shiver. They report theres a solid ice wall in the back of that igloo. I punched it, 6-year-old Jostin Resendiz, his grin missing a front tooth, announces. It didnt hurt. Outside the igloo, CMons customers of the day assemble synthetic snowmen. Give em a black top hat and a carrot nose, one that doesnt decompose, then skip on over to Summer. Who cares about the chronological order of the seasons? Theres a TV camera in Summer, where kids can play meteorologist and report on a storm if they feel a hurricane a brewin. Soon as they step into Summer, they hear the sound of air hissing, right by where 5-year-old Alanna Pearson stands. Shes all freckles and no front teeth, pinning pinwheels together to spin in the airstream. Whos ready to go on? Mrs. Hendrix urges. But wait, wait, what about Spring? One child in particular seems to resonate with Spring. It has flowers and its pretty, says Christina Conn, 6. Spring has been modeled after Marthas Vineyard, Mass. Here, Christina pretends to feed baby birds and help Mama bird build a nest. Remember your favorite place, Mrs. Hendrix instructs. Were going to write about it later. My favorite part is the tree, says Joseph Delgado, a boy tall for his 6 years of age. But we havent even the teachers thought interrupted, as another student chimes in, Me, too! And a third, The tree! It appears the childrens favorite part would be the thing they have yet to do. The class lines up for head count. All 16 students here. No one absent on field-trip day. Off to the farm and market to see how food makes it from the soil to the shelf. Make-believe farmers pick oranges, tomatoes, watermelons, lemons, limes and corn. Wheel-barrel their crops over to the pretend delivery truck. Sit in the drivers seat and study a map: Floridas oranges do not just stay in Florida. Those lines dashing across oceans? Thats Floridas pride being shipped around the world.All fun and playgrounds My kids come here a lot, says Heather Patton, CMon director of external affairs. And every time theyre here, they tell me they had even more fun than the time before. Each time, they discover more fun. Her children are 7 and 9 years old. Their first visit to CMon, they ran around trying to see everything which is typical, Mrs. Patton and other museum staffers have discovered in the weeks since CMon opened. Its when kids come back, she explains, that they can settle into each space and really discover whats there like a map, or the reach of Floridas produce. But for now, Mrs. Hendrixs class would be in that first-time dance, running around, trying not to miss a thing. Some are buying groceries, some are bagging groceries, doing real math at pretend cash registers do kids at CMon even know theyre learning? Others are loading plastic produce onto a conveyor belt, watching it roll on over to the market. Here, the children are safe. But as far as the grownups, one or two must have hit their head, for theres a bumper pad around a beam, showing all thought behind the museum was geared to a childs level. That padded surface shows something else about CMon, too: Its a place where children feel bigger and adults feel too big. Smiling so sweetly, 6-year-old Renette Antoine waits ever so patiently for her teacher to stop speaking with another one of these too-big adults. Her head full of braids clasped in pink and white barrettes, she asks, May I go to the tree, please? The little girl next to her, a white bow in her hair, pats the trunk of the tree and says, My favorite. But theres a line for tree 927 guests visit the museum on the day of this field trip so Mrs. Hendrix corrals her class to the pier, where they cast magnets that attract stuffed-animal fish. Christina, the girl who fancies Spring, reels one in. And true to the Zen of fishing, she sits and reflects. I like the cold place, she says of the igloo, cause I get to feel the cold. She reels in another fish as a grownup urges her to give her classmates a turn. Just let me get one more, she says. Then shes off to her next playground thats how she describes the museum: fun and playgrounds. Christina and a gaggle of girls enter a 22-foot-wide Nautica shell, all spelunker-like. They find more seashells, affixed like barnacles to the inner walls of the giant shell. They hear the sound of ocean, and for a moment, theyre quiet. But outside, its still a cacophony of children: Youre not sharing, Im telling. I wanna do it again. Will someone give me a raccoon, please? meaning a hand puppet. Adult voices pepper in: Whoopsie daisy. Get down from there, please. One button at a time, please. Thank you. En route to the highly anticipated tree, Mrs. Hendrixs class must traverse one more playground the Everglades. They make their way across the boardwalk with a mangrove maze and a CMONFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTO VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLY A field trip to CMon begins with a briefing upstairs.

Entering their ninth year of support for Habitat for Humanity of Collier County, Colliers Reserve Country Club members have donated just under $1 million and funded 17 homes. It is so special to see a community come together and so generously support Habitat for Humanity, says Jennifer Pash of Habitat for Humanity of Collier County. Each year the Colliers Reserve community hosts a reception at which the Habitat for Humanity recipient family shares its story with the members of Colliers Reserve. It helps us remember why we are supporting Habitat for Humanity. We want to help families build a better life for themselves, says Ron Schlemmer, chairman of the Colliers Reserve Habitat for Humanity committee. This year, the members met Benoit, Marie and Christie Elidor, the family who recently moved into the 17th Habitat for Humanity home made possible by the members of Colliers Reserve. In their native Haiti, the Elidor family owned and managed a small supermarket. Even as business owners, poverty was still a harsh reality of their everyday life. When their daughter, Christie, was born, Benoit and Marie knew that they wanted to provide opportunity and a better life for their growing family. The Elidors began the lengthy and expensive process of legally immigrating to the United States, with Benoit arriving first. On Jan. 12, 2010, just minutes after Marie closed up their supermarket in Haiti, disaster struck as the earth began to shake. When the rubble cleared from the 7.0 magnitude earthquake, they had lost everything. Seven months later, the family was reunited in Naples. Living with Benoits sister, they dreamed of owning their own home where they could put down roots and build a strong foundation for their daughter. Even though they worked two full-time jobs, however, the familys income didnt qualify them for a conventional mortgage. So they turned to Habitat for Humanity. Before being approved as a Habitat partner family, the Elidors underwent an exhaustive application process. They were required to invest 500 hours of sweatequity working on their home and the homes of their neighbors, before making a $1,000 down payment and purchasing their home with a no-interest mortgage. The Elidor family was among the first to purchase their home as part of Habitats foreclosure-rehab initiative in Golden Gate City. As neighborhoods experienced the ills of vacant and abandoned units, Habitat for Humanity recognized an opportunity to make a difference. By purchasing bankowned foreclosures, rehabbing them to stringent like-new standards and selling them to qualifying partner families, Habitat for Humanity has helped to keep blight at bay. Now, the Elidors have a home they can both afford and be proud of. Marie is studying English at Lorenzo Walker Institute of Technology with a goal of moving into the nursing program. Christie is thriving at her new school, Golden Terrace Elementary, and Benoit can often be found leading worship at a local Haitian Baptist church. When asked how life is in their new home, Benoit beams: One word comes to mind immediately wonderful!

In the last year alone, a Naples resident reported receiving religiously motivated hate mail, two gay men were violently beaten and one man had swastikas painted on his garage in a gated community. The best combatant against the dangerous impact of bigotry and ignorance is, of course, education. On the heels of more than 20 years of international acclaim and a celebrated tour throughout California, the Simon Wiesenthal Centers The Courage to Remember: the Holocaust 1933-1945 traveling exhibit is making its way to Naples, presented by the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida and the Foundation for California. The exhibits 200-plus photographs offer insight into the Holocaust through four themes: Nazi Germany, 1933-1938; Moving Toward the Final Solution, 1939-1941; Annihilation in Nazi-occupied Europe, 1941-1945; and Liberation, Building New Lives. North Collier Regional Park is home to the display through April 6. Hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday. Admission is open to the public and free of charge. Produced by the Museum of Tolerance, the educational arm of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, The Courage to Remember brings a universal message of hope and acceptance to Naples. This is its second stop in Florida this year. The exhibit, which is always free of charge and open to the public, has drawn more than 2 million visitors to more than 75 locations in 15 countries since its inception. Two decades after we first designed this exhibit, its lesson is still vital to peace at home and abroad, says Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. Dr. Alfred Balitzer, chairman of the Foundation for California, says the exhibit teaches tolerance of diversity, respect. Holocaust education and tributed, he added, is critical in that it encourages new generations of forward-thinkers. Rabbi Cooper echoes that sentiment. The Courage to Remember has been so well-received and so powerful in other communities. We are thrilled to bring it to Naples, where its messages of hope, tolerance and change will resonate long after guests leave.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 mirror of 126 uncompromising black-andwhite AP news photographs in the exhibit Memories of World War II. Those remain on display at the gallery through April 7. The photos of Germanys cruelty and perfidy, and Japans attack on Pearl Harbor, clearly show who the aggressors were the kinds of concrete justifications weve not had for any war since, Mr. Hilliard commented, eyeballing images that were, to him, deeply personal. Once again, the frightening rank-andfile of Hitlers German army marched through the Champs-Elysees in Paris; Londoners lay cheek-to-jowl in the subway as their city exploded above them; terrified men, women and children walked with foot-long Js sewn onto the backs of their clothing through the streets of their own western European cities; the U.S.S. Shaw blew up at Pearl Harbor; Six Marines raised the flag at Iwo Jima, three of whom would soon be dead; an American soldier lay face down in the mud, his right hand still wrapped around the trigger guard of his Browning automatic rifle and his left clutching a hand grenade. Once again, Cologne lay in devastated ruins in March 1945. Once again, Hiroshima lay disembodied in dust in August 1945. And once again, the hollow-eyed survivors of German labor and death camps, seemingly reduced to skeletal puppets, stared outward at the camera of their rescuers. One of them clinging to the unthreading edge of survival is Elie Wiesel, who would later write his own remembrance, Night, and win the Nobel Peace Prize. Because I remember, I despair, Mr. Wiesel once said. Because I remember, I have the duty to reject despair. Visitors to the exhibit appeared to understand that concept intimately. And it didnt prevent them either from shedding tears or from running comparisons. Later we were always asking: What are we doing in Korea? What are we doing in Vietnam or Afghanistan or Iraq? noted visitor and Michigander Jim Cook, now 80, who watched many men leave for war from his boyhood town, but only some return. It isnt a question the pacifist, Mr. Hilliard, asked then at age 18 or now about the day he reported to the draft board. I had terrible eyesight. I had to wear thick glasses, he recalls. And I knew they were going to turn me down, but I wanted in. So he cheated on the eye exam. I could barely see the big A, let alone the other letters, without the glasses. But when the man in front of me came out, he left the door open for a moment and I still had the glasses on. So I memorized the chart. That got him from Brooklyn into the Second Infantry Division at the Battle of the Bulge, in the winter of 1944-45. About 89,000 Americans were wounded, one of them him, and 19,000 killed But for Mr. Hilliard, the most important part of the war and its aftermath was still coming the part in which he and a couple of friends saved thousands of Jewish holocaust victims. Not from the unfathomable cruelty of the Germans, but from the callous disinterest of the Americans. Transferred after his battle wounds to an Army Air Corps unit that helped disarm Germans and organize life in Germany and Poland, he came across 420 wandering Holocaust survivors. Theyd been walking from town to town, seeking food and shelter and receiving only blunt rejection. Still a teenager and a private but now released from strict infantry discipline, he and a friend bought, stole and wheedled food and supplies from American units and local town officials to keep the survivors alive. But it wasnt enough. Slowly but steadily, their condition worsened. These people were victims of continued genocide by neglect, he says. Thousands were continuing to die, receiving virtually no food, clothing or medicines from the occupying U.S. forces. They were forced to live in horrifying conditions surrounded by barbed wire and American military police. So one night, he wrote and later had printed 600 copies of a letter he now describes as a 19-year-olds purple prose. It described the continuing horror of life for the surviving Jews. He and his friends then mailed those letters home to everyone they knew, asking them to send supplies. One of Mr. Hilliards 35 books, Surviving the Americans: the Continued Struggle of the Jews After Liberation, details those events. It was later made into an award-winning documentary film, Displaced: Miracle at St. Ottilien. The letter ultimately reached President Harry Truman. On Sept. 30, The New York Times came out with this headline, recalls Mr. Hilliard, who can still recite it: President Orders Eisenhower To End New Abuse of Jews. This was the subhead: Likens our treatment to that of the Nazis. Then, with fall and winter coming on, everything changed. It was one of the greatest moments in my life, when the trucks delivered those boxes right to the camps, he admits now. It was like manna from heaven. It was like Christmas morning I should probably say, Hanukkah morning. But for Mr. Hilliard and others, it still isnt over. For him and many now visiting the Philharmonic Center for the Arts, the words of William Faulkner may remain faultlessly true: The past isnt dead. It isnt even past.

In his speech to the congress the next day, Hitler warned the Czechoslovak government of his concerns over the treatment of the German-speaking majority living in the Sudetenland region. Less than three weeks later, the Munich pact granted Hitler the Sudetenland, and he agreed to respect the sovereignty of the remainder of Czechoslovakia. This appeasement of Hitler by other European powers led to a false sense that war could be avoided.AP ARCHIVES / COURTESY OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESSAbove: The best-known attempt of the Jews to resist the Nazis in armed struggle took place in the Warsaw Ghetto from April 19-May 16, 1943. During the uprising, the SS captured and deported some 56,000 Jews from the ghetto to death camps and concentration camps. This photograph of Jews before deportation was included in an album titled The Warsaw Ghetto Is No More, which commander Jrgen Stroop had made for Heinrich Himmler, the Reichsfhrer of the SS. The album was captured by the Allies and introduced in the postwar Nuremberg Trials as an exhibit. In the album, this photo was captioned, Pulled out of Bunkers by Force.

Several children delight in the mullet jumping in the inlet. Mangrove leaves are bright new green, and propagules (mangrove seeds) are starting to form on the tips of the branches of the red mangroves surrounding the dock. Weve spotted manatees several times in the last weeks near our docking area. Manatees are sometimes referred to as sea cows because they also eat grass, but they are really most closely related to elephants. Their prehensile noses are used to grab food, pull it out by the roots and put it into their mouths. The manatees surface periodically and expel air with a snort before grabbing a new breath and settling back down to the bottom. Signs posted throughout Rookery Bay warn boaters to be aware of manatees lumbering beneath the surface. As our pontoon boat cruises south toward Hall Bay, guests use the binoculars we provide to help them spot the young eagles on top of their increasingly tattered nest. Now almost as large as their parents, the eaglets have not fully fledged (they still do not have all their feathers or maturity need to take flight.) The parents tend to watch them from atop several nearby tall slash pines. Eagle sighting always draw lots of oohs and aahs from passengers aboard the Good Fortune II. Florida is home to the largest bald eagle population outside of ABOARD THE GOOD FORTUNE IIJUDY HUSHON / COURTESY PHOTOS An osprey atop a channel marker

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 A25 ABOARD THE GOOD FORTUNE IIAlaska, and a number of pairs reside in the Rookery Bay estuary. Osprey nests where parents protect their newly hatched young dot the tops of channel markers. We are just starting to see the tiny heads reaching up waiting to be fed, and parents are increasingly busy taking turns fishing and then feeding the young. In a few more weeks, many more of the babies will be sitting up in these nests, and their calls will become louder. Great blue herons are everywhere tonight, along with plentiful populations of great egrets. Many snowy egrets dot the mangroves, while the tri-colored heron, a passenger favorite, sails past and lands gracefully in the mangroves. One little blue flies low over the water, and we spot turkey vultures in the distance. Then, as if right on cue, a white-tailed deer, our first of the season, appears in the shallows near Marker 38. And not to be outdone by the deer, a turtle surprises us by climbing straight out of the water in front of us. Circling around to the Rookery Islands, we see dozens of brown pelicans and double-crested cormorants. More of the pelicans are displaying their breeding plumage, so we expect to start seeing new nests on our outings. On the way back to the dock, the tide is almost high as we cruise to the oyster bar at the entrance to Henderson Creek. We spot a flock of oystercatchers hard at work on their evening meal, using their bright orange beaks to pry open oysters and get to the tasty morsels inside. A perfect sunset provides the perfect backdrop to another wonderful trip. Judy Hushon is a volunteer at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. The Good Fortune II is a 35-passenger pontoon boat that plies the waters of Rookery Bay. Three narrated eco-cruises set out daily from the dock off Shell Island Road in Naples, and the boat is also available for private charters.

Although the approach is comical, the realities are more invasive and longer lasting than a one-hour television show, and the repercussions cannot be alleviated through song.Name calling, teasing, rumor spreading, hitting, pushing and callous and unkind texts are the most common forms of bullying. All mean behaviors cannot, however, be classified as bullying; an occasional misdirected and uncaring act is actually an aspect of normal development and human interaction. Some degree of conflict helps us find personal boundaries and a sense of our own power. In a healthy environment, it can also help teach us the difference between aggression and kindness or violence and acquiescence. SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Trustees of the Naples Children & Education Foundation, founders of the Naples Winter Wine Festival, presented $7.43 million in grant checks to charitable organizations that serve Collier Countys underprivileged and at-risk children. During a ceremony March 26 at The Old Collier Golf Club, 24 charities received grant checks totaling $6.18 million to help fund programs and services over the next 12 months. Grants ranged in size from $25,000 for St. Matts Camps for Kids to $1 million for Boys & Girls Club of Collier County. The grants will fund early learning programs, afterschool and summer programs, physical and mental health services and counseling and services for foster children and other at-risk youth. Four organizations received NCEF grants for the first time: Golisano Childrens Museum of Naples for access and special programs ($200,000); Legal Aid for Collier Kids ($115,000); the Cal Ripken Senior Foundation ($100,000) for baseball program support in conjunction with the East Naples Boys & Girls Club and Baltimore summer baseball camp; and Naples Botanical Garden ($53,000) for a science-based summer school program. Guadalupe Center of Immokalee and Greater Marco Family YMCA received large grants ($700,000 and $265,000, respectively) to fund after-school and summer programs. Childrens Advocacy Center of Collier County received $484,000 to fund services for child victims of sexual and physical abuse, neglect or exposure to domestic violence. In addition, grants totaling $1.2 million were awarded for three multiyear, strategic initiatives: the Out of School Time program in Immokalee ($300,000), H.U.G.S. (Health Under Guided Systems) to address behavioral health issues ($200,000) and Now You See It ($750,000) to improve childrens vision through screening and providing prescription eyeglasses. Now You See It was the 2012 wine festivals fund-a-need cause. During 18 months of planning the wine festival, everyone stayed focused on the children who would benefit, said Bob Clifford, NCEF trustee and 2012 festival co-chair with his wife Joan. This is the culmination of the generosity of so many chefs, vintners, sponsors, volunteers and patrons, he added. Together we are bringing magic into childrens lives, and it is an honor for NCEF trustees to represent all our supporters as we present grant checks. Mrs. Clifford, also an NCEF trustee and the newly appointed vice chair of the grant committee, said, We are able to act quickly to close service gaps and step in with funding. It may sound clich, yet its true: the festival is all about the kids. In addition to those already mentioned, the following round out the list of 2012 NCEF grant recipients: ABLE Academy, $300,000; Catholic Charities, $119,000; Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida, $62,000; Early Literacy and Learning Model Program, $350,000; Friends of Foster Children of Southwest Florida, $350,000; Fun Tim Early Childhood Academy, $126,000; Immokalee Child Care Center, $235,000; Immokalee Housing & Family Services, $60,000; Naples Botanical Garden, $53,000; Naples Equestrian Challenge, $100,000; Redlands Christian Migrant Association, $315,000; Shelter for Abused Women & Children, $313,000; Southwest Florida Workforce Development Board, $340,000; Tutor Corps, $76,000; YMCA of the Palms, $440,000; and Youth Haven, $50,000. Most social service agencies in Collier County are dependent on funding from foundation grants, fundraisers and private donations in order to remain viable. For charities that apply for NCEF grants, there is a rigorous vetting process, and those receiving grants are monitored to ensure dollars are effectively administered. NCEF also requires that charities act collaboratively to fill gaps in service. We follow a prescriptive grant-making process in that we research needs and award grants based on organizations abilities to fill those needs, said Bob Scott, NCEF trustee and board chair. When charities work together, dollars go further and more children benefit. Through the Naples Winter Wine Festival, NCEF has raised $107 million since 2001, making it the most successful charity wine auction in the world.

CONT. The difference is in how the behavior is dealt with. Each mean act offers the potential for an equal act of kindness; a positive for each negative. It remains the job of our families to begin this educational journey at a young age. Schools and our community, as a whole, have the responsibility to assist in the creation of healthy interaction and safety for our inhabitants. Bullying, unlike an occasional uncaring act, is repetitious, with malicious acts targeting a specific person or people and consciously designed to harm. Under their cruel and grandiose exterior, bullies actually have poor self-esteem, and their bullying behaviors are their attempt at misguided survival. Without a daily fix of offsetting superiority, their feelings about themselves come crashing into their reality.Although they might say, Oh, I didnt mean it, their behavior is no accident, and we as a community must know better. It is also important to note that childhood bullies grow up to be adult bullies who cause further emotional difficulties in marriages, families and the workplace. According to www. bullyingstatics.org, 2010 statistics show that 2.7 million students are bullied each year and that one in seven students (kindergarten through 12th grade) is either a bully or has been the target of a bully. Without intervention, these numbers will continue to grow, affecting generations to come. Bullying has been linked to a number of diagnosable psychological issues. Both bullies and targets have been found to suffer from depression in greater numbers than children who have not experienced bullying. Symptoms can include anxiety, inability to concentrate, physical illness, changes in sleep patterns, sadness or irritability and/or feeling hopeless. Studies have also shown that those who experience cyber-bullying are more likely to show signs of low selfesteem and/or have suicidal thoughts and possible behaviors. We have also become too familiar with sad and shocking news reports of murder/suicides that stem from psychological trauma related to bullying. Bullying is believed to have played a role in the recent Ohio school shooting that killed three people. The long-range effects of bullying are serious and demand our attention. As a community, we must create an environment that promotes peaceful conflict resolution and rewards acts of conscious kindness. I was happy to see the Collier County Sheriffs Office, Collier County Public Schools and Crime Stoppers launch an anti-bullying texting program to catch bullying before it leads to deadly tragedies of this nature. And I am proud of my association with the David Lawrence Center, an organization with the resources to help those who need help grappling with the emotional issues related to bullying, whether the one who is targeted or the one who inflicts. The center is Collier Countys only comprehensive, nonprofit mental health and substance abuse treatment facility serving children, adults and families.

The backcountry catchand-release tournament lures youth and young adult anglers to reel in redfish, snook and trout in guided or open divisions as well as to chase the coveted Grand Champion trophies. Winners will also be named for Most Unusual Catch, Best Photograph and Trash Can Slam. Proceeds support the Gene Doyle Adventure Scholarship, which gives three Collier County high school students the chance to take the adventure of a lifetime, either self-designed or through structured programs such as Outward Bound. Since its inception, the fund has sent more than 40 Collier County students packing, from the Appalachian Trails to the whitewaters of Alaska. We want to keep the spirit of Gene Doyle alive by helping students explore the challenge of a wild adventure and the pure joy of the outdoors, says Sean Morton, tournament chair. Born in Naples in 1976, Gene always had an appetite for adventure and the boundless energy to get him there. Through his years at Poinciana Elementary School, Gulfview Middle School and Naples High School, he excelled academically and brightened classrooms with a disarming smile. He earned varsity letters in cross-country, track and field, swimming and wrestling. He also served as student council president. He balanced his academic and athletic careers with attention to his foremost activity: living life to the fullest. Waterskiing, fishing, frog-gigging and Everglades spotlighting topped his weekend activities. Those who knew him say he always had a new idea and boundless energy. Getting rich quick was always on his list of adventures, but only if getting there was fun. Immediately after graduating high school, with a oneway ticket in his hand, he headed to Alaska looking for work, but more importantly, looking for an adventure. He spent that summer as a deckhand on a charter fishing boat, living in a tent on the beach and having no means of transportation. He came home full of stories and enthusiasm, as always. He earned a scholarship and place in the Honors College at the University of South Carolina. Advanced Placement classes put him a year ahead of fellow classmates on the road to a degree in marine science. In November 1996, however, when he was well on the road to his degree in marine science with plans to attend a study abroad program in Belize, Gene SEE FISHING, A37

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA40 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 HEALTHY LIVING SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYWhen the USDA revised its food pyramid nutrition guidelines last year, its goal was to educate children and adults alike on the new recommendations. Now, just over half a year later, the movement toward a healthier lifestyle is picking up steam. With school-based health and wellness programs like Lets Move and Fuel Up to Play 60 becoming popular, kids across the country are making a conscious effort to make nutritious food choices and prioritize daily activity. Nutrition educators at Learning ZoneXpress, a USDA partner and producer of edu-taining learning tools, has developed this list of tips and tricks to help kids make healthy food choices: Get kids involved. It can start at the grocery store. Let them choose a fruit, vegetable or whole-grain snack. If they choose the food, it is more likely the child will want to eat it. At home, let the kids help with meal preparation. Young children can help gather and wash the food, while pre-teens, with supervision, can help stir or saute at the stove. Teenagers can help chop vegetables or use the oven. By involving kids in the process, they are more likely to try new foods. Make fruits and vegetables a bigger part of your day. Eating healthier does not mean kids have to feel hungry. Instead, try helping your kids fill up on more fruits and vegetables, which are rich in fiber a key nutrient that will help them feel full longer. The new MyPlate recommends filling half of your plate with fruits and vegetables.Eat breakfast every day. Even if the children only have time for a banana and a piece of string cheese on their way out the door, eating breakfast is important for both kids and parents. It provides energy and curbs hunger later in the day when you will be more likely to snack. Eat dinner on a smaller plate. Healthy eating doesnt mean children have to give up all their favorite foods. Instead, try eating smaller portion sizes. At home, serve meals on smaller plates, like a salad plate. It will appear that you are eating more, and it will be less tempting to add larger portions of food.Dont eat out of the package. Always put food in a bowl or on a plate. This makes it easy to see the exact portion of food. When Junior eats directly from the package, hes less in tune with what and how much he is eating.If given the option, order the smaller portion. This small change can save hundreds of calories. For example, a small hamburger contains 260 calories while a large burger contains 730 calories a difference of 470 calories! If a smaller portion is not available, try sharing the meal or packaging a portion of it in a doggie bag as soon as the meal arrives.Set small goals. Eating healthy starts by setting small goals and sticking to them. For example, encourage the whole family to try drinking more water, cut out soda or replace high-calorie and sugary desserts with a piece of fruit. It will be easier to stick to healthy goals if the whole family is committed to better habits. For more healthy eating information and free nutrition resources for engaging growing students, visit www.freemyplate. com. Seven easy tips to help kids make healthy food choicesWith respect and appreciation for NCH volunteers and nursesTwo of the most important and influential groups in the NCH family are our volunteers and our nurses. Every day, in so many ways, our volunteers contribute to the wellbeing of a county that has been recognized twice now as the healthiest of all 67 counties in Florida. One indisputable ingredient that makes Collier the healthiest county is our legion of dedicated volunteers helping those in need. Volunteers are often the first and last impression of NCH that a patient or family receives whether at the front door, in the golf cart offering a ride from the parking lot, escorting a family through a hospital campus or assisting at the time of discharge. From our White Elephant shop to our mailroom, volunteers contribute substantially and tangibly to every phase of hospital operations. Stated simply, volunteers are invaluable in reinforcing the reputation of NCH as a high-touch and high-tech institution. All of us at NCH appreciate the contribution of every NCH volunteer, and we hope that each derives equivalent satisfaction in knowing that they are performing valuable community service.And heres to nursesOur board of trustees human resources committee recently received an update on nursing shared governance from Laurie Zone-Smith, PhD, RN. Shared governance provides an opportunity for growth and development while still maintaining a clinical practice. Leadership from the bedside supports authority, responsibility, accountability and all the processes that support excellent patient care. These opportunities enhance job satisfaction, quality care and fiscal viability to help create a winwin situation for all nurses, patients and the rest of us in the NCH family. Our career ladder program, a foundation of shared governance, consists of five stages. Created by nurses, the program is based on continuing education, expertise and professional development. Of our 943 eligible nurses, 214 (23 percent) are engaged in the program. Those in the upper three tiers are eligible for bonuses ranging from 2 percent to 4 percent. Investing in nursing education is not only the best single change agent for nurses, but also for patients and our community. Our annual, all-encompassing nurse satisfaction survey has shown improvement in nine of 10 parameters and has helped us focus our efforts on areas needing improvement. The evolution of our nurses is clearly a journey moving in the right direction. Our 1,200 volunteers served a total of 185,000 hours last year. These volunteers and 1,139 total nurses, along with our 608 physicians and 3,000 other caregivers, serve our community with distinction. When we proclaim, This Is My Hospital, we are talking about the contributions of all the members of this committed team, working together as caregivers. Have a heart for AHAs Go Red annual luncheonThe American Heart Associations 2012 Southwest Florida Go Red For Women luncheon is set for Wednesday, May 23, at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa in Bonita Springs. Keynote speaker Dr. Jennifer Mieres is one of the worlds leading experts and patient advocates in the fields of nuclear cardiology and cardiovascular disease in women. The annual Go Red For Women luncheon focuses on three areas: heightening awareness of heart disease, which is the No. 1 killer of women; creating a passionate call to action; and generating funds to support education and research. Themed around sisterhood and inspiration, it is organized for and by Southwest Florida women to empower sisters, mothers, daughters and friends to take control of their heart health and help support the fight disease in women. Heart disease takes the life of one in three women each year more than the next six causes of death combined amounting to nearly 550,000 lives lost every year. Women have often been underrepresented in cardiovascular clinical studies, and thus it cannot be known whether important conclusions apply to women. Despite specific efforts to correct this, women represent just 38 percent of subjects in National Institute of Health-funded cardiovascular studies. The AHA is seeking additional funding of $10 million for research on cardiovascular disease to level these gender disparities and to put new projects into the research pipeline to help close the knowledge gap that exists about heart disease in men and women. Sponsors of the 2012 Go Red For Women luncheon are Lee Memorial Health System, Arthrex, Vein Specialists, Condo & HOA Law Group LLC and CoroWise Naturally Sourced Cholesterol Reducer. Media sponsors are Azteca America, Comcast, Florida Weekly, Gulfshore Life and NBC-2. The Sublett family is sponsoring the keynote speaker. The AHA Go Red For Women campaign is sponsored nationally by Macys and Merck. Luncheon tickets are $125 per person, and sponsorships are available.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA42 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 BY GINA SPADAFORI Universal UclickWhen my 15-year-old Sheltie collapsed in the yard, I was pretty sure I wasnt going to lose him that night. Thats because I knew there was a good chance that what he had was something called old dog vestibular disease and that chances were good that hed be fine after a visit to my veterinarian. Which is not to say I was nonchalant about having a dog who couldnt stand without falling over. After all, Drew has been a hospice dog since last summer, when he was diagnosed with end-stage kidney disease. Since then, though, he has been happily toddling along with daily doses I give him from IV bags that I hang from my dining-room chandelier. But back to ODV ... or, if you will, a doggy stroke. There are few conditions veterinarians see with some regularity that really scare the pants off pet owners, but most veterinarians dont see them as major problems, said Dr. Tony Johnson, clinical professor of emergency and critical care at the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine. One of these is indeed old dog vestibular disease. Dr. Johnson is a friend and Pet Connection colleague, which is why I already knew that Drew might be fine. The board-certified emergency specialist had previously written about ODV for a book project that I edited, so I knew about the sudden onset symptoms that include a loss of balance, head tilt and vomiting attributed to something akin to motion sickness. To the dog with ODV, the world appears to be spinning, explained Dr. Johnson, which makes everyone feel a little queasy. As soon as I got Drew to the hospital, our own veterinary team started eliminating other, more dire possibilities. In Drews case, that meant a blood test for his kidney values (fine) and a check of his blood pressure (also fine). Because of his nausea, he was sent home with something to settle his stomach. That, and the tincture of time. The real cause of ODV has eluded science, said Dr. Johnson. It may be a mini-stroke, like a TIA (transient ischemic attack) in people. Less than a day after his initial collapse, Drew was able to stand a little and was interested in begging for a little toast. (He got what he wanted, of course.) In the majority of ODV dogs, most symptoms resolve within a couple of weeks, said Dr. Johnson, although TLC is necessary while the pets are getting better. Some dogs need help getting out into the yard to relieve themselves, and some will also need to be hand-fed for a while. For those dogs who dont get better about a quarter of suspected ODV cases, says Dr. Johnson the true problem is typically a brain tumor. While only an MRI would rule out that problem and I didnt opt for Drew to have one itll be a while before I know if my little old dog will be back to what was normal for him before. In the meantime, hell get all the TLC he needs along with the daily fluids he has had for months to keep his aging kidneys going. With any luck, hell be around and feeling just fine for his 16th birthday. PET TALESStroke survivorOld dog vestibular disease not as awful as it sounds A few days after this picture was taken, 15-year-old Drew was struck with old dog vestibular disease, which generally is resolved with good results.

Shakespeare quotes Shylock in Merchant of Venice Every eye fixed upon him; with parted lips and bated breath the audience hung upon his words, taking no note of time, rapt in the ghastly fascinations of the tale. Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer Sally, having swallowed cheese, directs down holes the scented breeze, enticing thus with baited breath. Geoffrey Taylor, Cruel Clever Cat He was me, yes. But I am not him. Neil Gaiman, quotes Odin in American GodsThis column is part two. Column one appearing in last weeks edition was bait, and now you are here again. So, breathe, Ke-mo sa-be. Ke-mo sa-be is the Potawatomi word. Potawatomi is a Central Algonquin language spoken by 13 Potawatomi people who live around the Great Lakes in Michigan and Wisconsin, Kansas and southern Ontario, Canada. There are attempts to try to revive this language, now spoken by so few people. The Potawatomi people refer to themselves in their own language as Bodewadmi, which means the keepers of the fire. They were part of a long term alliance of tribes, the Council of the Three Fires. All this changed during the Potawatomi Trail of Death in the early 1800s. This was a forced removal of the tribe from their home in Indiana to Kansas, pushing them west of the expanding population. Many died. It is incredible that many know this Potawatomi word from the same context in which are known the opening bars of Rossinis William Tell Overture. You know this context: The Lone Ranger. This was a 30s radio show and a 50s-60s television series. And the first image from the new Lone Ranger film starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer recently appeared in entertainment news from India to L.A., heralding the new films expected arrival in May 2013. The images just keep coming, long after the opening words faded away: A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a hearty Hi-Yo Silver! The Lone Ranger! ... With his faithful Indian companion Tonto, the daring and resourceful masked rider of the plains led the fight for law and order in the early western United States! Nowhere in the pages of history can one find a greater champion of justice! Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear! From out of the past come the thundering hoof beats of the great horse Silver! The Lone Ranger rides again! Come on, Silver! Lets go, big fellow! Hi-yo Silver! Away! Tonto, whose name means Wild One, was introduced into the show, thus have I heard, in order to give the Lone Ranger someone to talk to. The masked hero, who did nothing that would be later reproved, could not be found talking to himself. So he rescued his faithful friend, who then followed him relentlessly. No reason was ever given to explain why, rather than simply going about his own business, he followed the Lone Ranger. Or why the Lone Ranger repeatedly sent him to town alone for supplies, which always resulted in his being assaulted, beaten within an inch of his life, and then rescued by his friend. Each called the other Ke-mo sa-be, a term of endearment meaning faithful friend or trusty scout. Now we know what happens to mythology in America. Perhaps Neil Gaiman was wrong.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 We are a direct lender offering the following loan products: Making dreams come true... SW Floridas Fastest Growing Mortgage Bank! Tis tax time and, for most, not a season to be jolly. But investors can choose to make the most of this unpleasant time of year. Investors might want to rethink certain strategies for their IRA retirement assets. There would seem to be two approaches to this process: one is to consider the legal, technical structure and the other is the investment selection of ones IRA. Any good investigative plan would take both into consideration. Choosing IRA structure, whether a traditional IRA or a Roth, is complicated just as everything about our tax code is complicated. If you have a meaningful amount of IRA money or would be rolling over 401-K money into the IRA, you really need to speak to a retirement specialist. Most, but not all, Registered Investment Advisers or financial planners have generic knowledge of IRAs etc. In many cases, generic knowledge is sufficient. In some cases, especially with large IRA accounts, you definitely want to measure twice or thrice before you cut once. It is my opinion that you should seek out a person whose mainstay of business is retirement plan consulting as this is a very technical aspect of the investment business. Secondly, you would most probably not invest with and through a person who is technically proficient in IRAs as his acumen would not normally lend itself to investment expertise. Yet, often, people who are experts in IRAs want to garner the investment side of the transaction as well. It might be that they offer their technical expertise for free if you place money with them. Many an individual investor will bite on an offer of free. In the investment business, the free often has a string attached. Picture this: an investor is confused about IRA choices and consults an expert and, in doing so, becomes trusting of the expert personally and professionally. It is natural that this level of comfort leads extends to investment possibilities. The thought process that some investors adopt is that a person with such great technical knowledge of IRAs would surely be able to divine the investment universe and find the right investments. But most truly great investors are not tax experts. Bottom line, if you have sizeable IRA funds and plan to put sizeable money into such a plan, then be willing to hire an expert for his counsel and limit the relationship to that specific level of expertise. Next, is the investment choice. This column often covers the need for true portfolio diversification and inclusion of non-traditional or alternative investment classes in a portfolio. These same alternatives can be held in self directed IRAs (both self-directed traditional and self-directed Roth IRAs). Yes, there are more annual fees involved with selfdirected but, if the investor can look beyond the incremental cost, he opens himself to an excellent way to hold nontraditional assets, especially those with strong potential to rapidly appreciate. If you dont have a Roth IRA, you might want to consider the merits of making contributions to one, including the merits of converting a traditional IRAs assets, or a portion thereof, into a Roth. One thing is for certain: the U.S. is entering an environment where either discretionary spending programs will be significantly cut back or tax revenues and tax rates will rise further to pay for these programs. As such, plans that allow tax-free earnings are good, plans that allow tax-free distributions are better and plans that do not require distributions might even be the best. All three is a trifecta. A negative is that the Roth takes aftertax dollars as a contribution. (The traditional IRA takes tax-deductible contributions.) With the Roth, the accounts compound free of tax and the distributions are also tax-free and, further, they have no minimum distribution requirements after age 70. And that will give some very meaningful flexibility to tax planning. Any conversion to a Roth requires a payment now and most cannot endure the pain of a tax payment to re-characterize a plan. But if you have youngins and you think your youngins will be facing significantly higher taxes to pay the deficits of prior generations (and I think they will), then you might want to encourage them to fund a Roth. These are merely ideas to start you thinking in ways that might be new for you. It is advised that you speak to a retirement specialist to confirm any and all of the above and to garner counsel appropriate for you. It is wise to seek counsel of multiple advisers, especially experts, when considering anything outside of traditional investment assets or considering tax and retirement plan technicalities.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 gigs are his bread and butter. The Marco Island musician, who describes his style as original Floribbean, recently provided musical interludes for NAPA Auto Parts Triple Crown awards program and Purina Dog Chow. His annual 100-plus corporate events and weddings also include back-to-back bluegrass breakfasts for the Florida Fruits and Vegetable Association at The Ritz-Carlton. Its not easy to get into corporate gigs. Not everyone can do them, Mr. Houghtaling says. You have to be ready to play anything, whether its ambient music or something indigenous to Southwest Florida. You have to read the crowd. For NAPA, this was the companys movers and shakers. Theyre there to make money, and Im there to enhance their environment. I make it a quiet concert. It seems like the higher paying the gig, the less they hear me. A classically trained violinist and fiddler who favors bluegrass and blues, Mr. Houghtaling has worked his way up into the corporate realm, paying his dues on Marcos bar and restaurant scene at Quinns on the Beach, The Little Bar and Stans Idle Hour for 20 years. These days he can be more selective, although he seldom says no. He no longer relies on a tip jar or thinks about how many gigs its going to take to stay alive. He also refuses to negotiate his rate. I have a price, and its fair for what I do. Its not $50,000 a gig and its not $100 a night, he says. I can say this: When I go to the doctor, I pay what the doctor wants. I dont dicker like people do with musicians. I hold my price. Vivian Aiello, a violist and violinist, credits networking at bridal shows, joining trade organizations and making introductions to local wedding planners for helping her break into Southwest Floridas destination wedding market when she relocated to Naples in 2003. I feel Im pretty established now, says the founder of Seaside Strings, who performs solo or as part of a quartet. I keep pretty busy. Weddings, which typically pay $200 to $650 an hour, account for most of Ms. Aiellos work, although she does perform at corporate events and church holiday functions, and recently took the stage as part of The Bach Ensemble.If you can make it here Fort Myers musician Scott Scooby Bush got a couple of breaks early in his music career, touring nationally as bass guitarist with signed bands like the SunDogs and The Nixons. He now performs at the Buddah Bar, Cigar Bar Live and the Sandy Parrott with SuperBot, a cover band formed just three months ago after his break with Geek Skwad. SuperBot has expanded its repertoire beyond the formers mostly 1980s music to include hip-hop and current genres. Were trying to keep it big and wide, he says. The cover scene is doing well right now. But that wasnt always the case. In his 25 years in the business, Mr. Bush has had to work a day job as a painting contractor in Naples and he now owns Timeline Studio, a full-service recording studio in Fort Myers. Trombonist Scott Layman of Fort Myers says hes quit the music business seven times. Its kind of like the Godfather; I keep coming back. Mr. Layman, who started playing professionally at 15, used his talent to help pay his way through college, where an accounting minor lured him away for a while. He performed for opening day at the Boston Red Soxs new spring training facility and has had gigs at a handful of subsequent games. In season, from October through the middle of April, I can go 15 to 17 days without a break, and play two and three different places a day, says Mr. Layman, who also teaches private lessons. The money comes in really good then. The smaller the ensemble, the more lucrative the gig, for both Mr. Layman and Ms. Aiello. I make pretty good money with dance or jazz combos; big bands a little less, says Mr. Layman. I love to do wallpapering when someone is having a dinner party and wants nice jazz music in the background. The broader their repertoire, the more business a band or musician is likely to get. Ms. Aiello offers both classical arrangements and more modern-day compositions. Brides these days are mixing it up, she says. Ive added a lot of music to my repertoire. Mr. Laymans range is also far reaching. I can have my Dixieland hat on and later that night my symphony or big band hat on. Sometimes SuperBots tip jar rakes in up to $400, especially when someone inevitably shouts Free Bird. They yell Free Bird, I yell for security, says Mr. Bush. Then I tell them well do it if they put $100 in the tip jar. Some patrons obliged, he adds. While Mr. Houghtaling/JRobert accommodates most requests, he jokes he wont play in direct sunshine or rain.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 THE MOTLEY FOOL Learn From a MasterSmart investors keep learning, and who better to learn from than the worlds great investors? Meet Philip Carret, who invested for 70 years and beat the market soundly. (He died in 1998 at the age of 101.) Carret started Pioneer, the third-oldest U.S. mutual fund, in 1928. His average annual return, calculated from 1928 to 1974, is estimated to be 14 percent. Thats impressive, considering that the stock market in general averages roughly a 10 percent annual return. Here are some of Carrets investing principles: Never borrow money for speculation in stocks. When you do borrow, do so sparingly, and only when rates are low or falling and business is depressed. Never hold fewer than 10 stocks covering five different fields of business. More fortunes are made by sitting on securities for years at a time than by active trading. Reappraise every holding at least every six months. 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. Determining DividendsQHow can you tell if a company pays a dividend, and how big it is?H.C., Medford, .AYou can call the company and ask, or look it up online or in newspaper stock listings. Instead of the dividend itself, many stock listings include the dividend yield, which is the percentage of the current stock price being paid out annually in dividends. If theres a yield, it means theres a dividend. To figure out the dividend from the yield, multiply the yield by the stock price. Imagine that MacDonald Farms Inc. (ticker: EIEIO) is trading at $60 per share with a yield of 2 percent (which is 0.02). Multiply 0.02 by 60 and youll get 1.20, meaning that the company is currently paying out $1.20 each year in dividends per share. (Companies often pay dividends quarterly, so this would be $0.30 per quarter.) If youre looking for promising stocks that pay significant dividends, grab a free trial of our Motley Fool Income Investor newsletter at incomeinvestor.fool.com. ***QIve set some stop orders on stocks I bought at around 15 to 20 percent below the current price. This has resulted in some promising stocks getting sold before they have a chance to perform. What am I doing wrong? D.N., Topeka, Kan.AStop orders are placed with brokers to automatically sell shares if they drop to a certain level. Theyre meant to protect you if a stock suddenly plunges. But theyll also kick you out of stocks that drop briefly. If youre planning to hang on to a stock for years, you might want to just expect some volatility and avoid stop orders. Or set your stops at 25 or 30 percent. Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us. Ask the Fool Fools School My Smartest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & Enrich Be quick to take losses, reluctant to take profits. Avoid inside information as you would the plague. Diligently seek facts; advice, never. Keep at least half (your investment portfolio) in income-producing securities. (This would include not only bonds, but also dividend-paying stocks.) Never put more than 25 percent of (your investment portfolio) into securities about which detailed information is not readily and regularly available. Other lessons can be gleaned from Carrets life. It wasnt one spent with eyes glued to the stock ticker. He made time for things he enjoyed and was generous with and loyal to friends. When he prepared his housekeepers tax return for her, he quietly paid the taxes due, as well. He was a man of principle, too: When a social club at Harvard agreed to accept him on the condition that he lose his Jewish roommate, Carret told the club to take a hike. Mr. Carrets example shows how high performance and high principles can go hand in hand. The Bird in the HandIn 1999 I was looking for a conservative investment that offered good income plus security. I found a local credit union offering 7.25 percent interest if I locked up my money for five years. After some soul-searching, I deposited a hefty amount. Over the next few years, I laughed all the way from the bank. I.K., San DiegoThe Fool Responds: That was indeed a good deal at the time, and it looks even more fetching now, when interest rates are near record lows. It can be tempting, when you run across a good deal, to hold off, hoping for something even better. But remember the old proverb one in the hand is worth two in the bush. If the interest rate more than met your needs, you were right to act on it. If you had been less sure at the time, you might have opted to just deposit a smaller sum, hoping for a higher rate or better deal to turn up. You were also smart to do business with a credit union, as they often have very competitive rates. The Motley Fool TakeGeneral Electric for the Long RunLooking for a long-term stock for your portfolio? Consider General Electric. Yes, it was damaged by the recent financial meltdown, lost its coveted AAA debt rating and slashed its dividend during that disastrous period. But it has done a lot for itself and its shareholders since then. It reinstated its dividend, and has been upping it, too. Its yield was recently a solid 3.6 percent. While its true that General Electrics debt is no longer AAA worthy, it does still sport a AA+ debt rating, just one notch below that rarefied level. Its also executing a strong, futureName That CompanyI trace my roots back to two companies in the 1860s. One was founded by a Swiss pharmacist who developed a nutritious cows-milk formula for babies whose mothers couldnt breast-feed. The other was the Anglo-Swiss Condensed Milk Co., founded by two Americans. Over time I gobbled up other companies and became a leader in milk chocolate, bouillon, powdered soups and more. Today Im a Switzerland-based food giant, raking in billions and recently employing more than 300,000 people Last weeks trivia answerI began in 1886 in Minneapolis as a watch company. Based in Illinois today, Im one of Americas largest general retailers, with more than 4,000 stores in the U.S. and Canada. I merged with another big name in 2005 a retailer founded by Sebastian Kresge in 1899. Im Americas largest home appliance store and am also known for my tools, automotive maintenance services and more. I perform more than 11 million service calls to homes each year. My brand names include Kenmore, Craftsman, DieHard, Lands End, Jaclyn Smith, Joe Boxer, Apostrophe and Covington. Who am I? (Answer: Sears Holdings) worldwide. My brands include Gerber, Dreyers, Stouffers, Lean Cuisine, Maggi, Coffee-mate, Carnation, Purina, Friskies, Beneful and KitKat. Who am I? Know the answer? Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and youll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! oriented business strategy. Whether nuclear, natural gas, solar or wind (or all of the above) will be key to the worlds future energy needs, General Electrics power generation systems are poised to lead. And as energy efficiency remains at least as important as new generation, its Ecomagination initiative provides a strong foundation there, for business lines ranging from light bulbs to locomotives. Shareholder-friendly dividends. Worldclass balance sheet strength. A focus on the future that will keep it relevant for a long time to come. Yes, its always a leap of faith to buy a stock with the intention of holding it for the long run. But when it comes to General Electric, its a leap with a strong tailwind supporting it.

Picture perfectLondon Bay Homes and Clyde Butcher zoom in on Girona model at Mediterra SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYFloridas natural beauty the tangle of driftwood on a barren beach, slits of sunlight penetrating a dense cypress swamp and that magical place where cloud-filled sky meets water has been captured for decades by famed Everglades photographer Clyde Butcher. His black-and-white landscape art, which celebrates the sublime in even the simplest subjects, is showcased in some of the most exclusive private homes in the world, and for a limited time, his works are on display throughout the Girona, a three-bedroom, singlefamily villa model built by London Bay Homes in Mediterra. Its as if home and art were created for one another. The Gironas interior design fashioned by Romanza Interior Design with a contrast of off-white backgrounds, walls and upholstery, with dark wood furniture and chocolatehued woven bamboo flooring mimics Mr. Butchers famous work. Neither upstages the other; they work together seamlessly. The curves of modern furniture and drum-shaped light fixtures reflect those found in nature: Beauty and inspiration found in the simple lines of art and architecture. Exhibited as part of the Mediterra Model Homes Showcase, a fundraiser for the new Golisano Childrens Museum of Naples, Mr. Butchers photography is temporarily displayed throughout the Gironas 3,526 square feet of living space. Art is introduced in the foyer/dining area and appears in recesses and lighted art niches, along the walls of a sun-lit guest wing gallery and on an entire wall in the master suite. The natural beauty and subjects of Mr. Butchers work often leap from the walls to reality. The villas al fresco living and dining spaces, the master suites bougainvillea-laced pergola and an expansive pool deck overlook a tapestry of varied green tones the fairways along Mediterras two championship Tom Fazio-designed golf courses and a dense nature preserve, where resident photographers often capture birds, wildlife and other subjects worthy of Mr. Butchers focus. In Mediterras Cortile neighborhood of 46 estate and villa homesites, the Girona is priced at $2.295 million, fully furnished. The model has a formal dining room, great room, two full baths and a powder room. Finishes include natural stone and porcelain tile flooring and polished marble and granite countertops. The Girona is one of 14 villas and 18 single-family estate homes offered by London Bay Homes in Cortile, where homes and homesites start at just over $1 million.

A GUIDE TO THE LOCAL ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 The Hyacinth Concert Series at Moorings Presbyterian Church is celebrating its 30th year, and the April 1 presentation is a first. The program features the Naples Harp Ensemble and the Moorings Ringers, the churchs handbell choir, along with 11-year-old singer Zofia Majewski and the Kellyn Celtic Arts Dance Company. The free concert begins at 3 p.m. in the sanctuary. A freewill offering will be accepted. Richard Crofts, music director at the church and director of the Hyacinth Concert Series, looks forward to guest conductor William Griffin leading the harps, handbells and organist in American Folk Hymn Suite, which was written in 1973 by Dale Wood. 973 was the year I began a career in church music, and now, 39 years later, my first opportunity to see and hear the work performed has arrived, Mr. Crofts says. Mr. Griffin, a Naples resident, published composer and adjunct professor at Florida Gulf Coast University, worked with Mr. Wood, who died in 2003. For his concert, he expands the scope of handbell music and uses five octaves, Mr. Croft says. The concert will include two of 10 works written for harps and handbells. The Naples Harp Ensemble is under the musical direction of Dickie Fleisher. Moorings Ringers has performed at nine international handbell symposia around the world, from Canada to Australia, Japan, Korea and the United Kingdom. This summer, they are to be part of the 15th International Handbell Symposium in Liverpool, UK. Joining the Moorings Ringers and harps is a group called Morning Bells ringing a set of choir chimes. Together they will ring Arnold Shermans Song of Triumph. The Naples Harp Ensemble began in 1992 and includes harpists form the ages of 8 to 80, beginners to professionals. They rehearse several times each month and perform three concerts every year.

I met a college acquaintance I hadnt seen in 10 years for brunch this week, and when he leaned in to kiss me on the cheek he asked if Id like to sit at the bar while we waited for a table. At the bar? I said. Sometimes I still think Im in college, when a pricey drink and brunch would be out of my weekend budget. But my friend deftly picked up the tab for both of us, smoothly dropping two 20s to cover our mimosas. He paid for brunch, too, and I found myself surprised at how easy it was to talk to him. He inquired about my scrambled eggs, politely offered to let me try his smoked bacon, and I wondered if this was the same guy whod spent a two-hour lunch my sophomore year pointing out his sparkling qualities and then made me split the check. Apparently, a lot has changed since then. A perfect gentleman, I gushed to a girlfriend later. In school my friend was a typical finance major: cocky, arrogant, selfcentered. Money-focused and egotistical. Like a lot of men I knew (know?), he pressed to make sure I understood what a catch he was. The better catch of the two of us, he always seemed to be saying. He liked to hammer his message into me whenever we got together, which was less and less frequent over time. But during the course of our brunch, my memory of the domineering man faded and I developed a new impression of him. Perhaps the abrasive person Id known had morphed into an expansive, kind fellow. People dont change, my girlfriend said with a dismissive shrug. Well, this guy did, I answered stiffly. In the parking lot outside the restaurant, I thanked him for the lovely meal. As we began to part ways, I asked in passing if he played Words with Friends. Sometimes, he said. Ill look you up. He sent me a game request before I even made it home. He spelled H-EN for his opening salvo, and I shook my head. Novice. Now, I love Words with Friends, like I love Scrabble, like I love every competitive game ever invented. But I hate hate to lose. So when my old college friend proceeded to pummel me, I was less than thrilled. And heres the thing: It wasnt a soft pummel or a friendly pummel or even a lightly competitive pummel. No, he pummeled me into the ground. Even when the breath had been knocked out of me, even when I limped off the playing field, even when he had a solid 200-point lead, he continued to beat be mercilessly. Not such a gentleman, after all. I was quickly reminded why we werent better friends in college, why his need to feel superior in every situation grated on me, and why his lack of basic courtesy left me cold. Hed managed to keep that side of himself concealed through the space of brunch, but Words with Friends brought out the worst and truest parts of his personality. It turns out he hasnt changed at all.

Here Come the Mummies return to Punta Gorda for open-air concert BY KATHY GREY kgrey@ oridaweekly.comBig Crush Productions brings Here Come the Mummies back to Southwest Florida for FunkFest 3, an outdoor concert starting at 3 p.m. Saturday, March 31. Father-and-son team Matt and Nick Nemec have arranged to bring the libido-laden librettists back for a third time and let the sounds of the horninfused band take over the streets of downtown Punta Gorda. Gates open at 3 p.m. Opening for the Mummies are Cover Art, the Nashville duo Hymn for Her and the BoogieMen. Here Come the Mummies takes the stage for a two-hour set beginning at 9 p.m. The Mummies practice healthy irreverence and its lyrics are decidedly steamy. Audience members might be forewarned and rethink bringing children younger than 18. Members of the group steadfastly remain in ancient character; their music is reminiscent of Chicago, KC and the Sunshine Band and/or Earth, Wind and Fire. We like to think of it as original wrap music. Tickets sales have been robust. VIP tickets are nearly sold out, many to folks outside the area from Wisconsin, New York, Tennessee, Michigan, Miami, Tampa, Naples and Fort Myers who realize that $85 for live music, prime (and comfortable) seating and plenty to eat and drink is the deal of the decade. If you are a fan of horns and good guitar rhythms and drums, Mr. Nemec says, this is for you. Here Come the Mummies meets the music needs of everyone, young and old. The music is incredible.

San Francisco Examiner Hi l l ari o o u s s Naples Daily News NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 C3 Unraveling the secrets of the mummiesFlorida Weekly conducted an exclusive reparte with band member and spokesmummy, Java. (Java? Maybe thats why mummies roam at night.) Mr. Mummy immediately set the record straight about the common assumption that members of the band are musicians in disguise. The truth is that we are ancient musicians cursed for eternity for fraternizing with a pharaohs daughters, he said. This piqued our curiosity about the musicians and their sleep habits, among other things. The question-andanswer exchange went like this: FW: Do band members swap out with other performers when they want a day off? (I mean, who would know?) JM: We normally have nine mummies on the stage at any one time, but many more of us were cursed, thus we have a power-packed pool of reserves. FW: Do the Mummies get away with delightfully racy, raucous lyrics because they are essentially anonymous? JM: No. We sing of amorous adventures because it excites the ladies and makes boys snicker. Besides, it really makes us happy. FW: How old are the players? (A.D. years appreciated.) JM: All of us were born between 1,500 and 2,000 years before year 0. We stay youthful with a rigid regimen of exercise, healthy food and hot tubs full of women. FW: Can you give us a sense of the players performance backgrounds and other gigs? JM: When we are not on stage together, we play for all types of other acts, both live and in the studio: rock, country, jazz and classical. The real magic happens, however, when were together. The true happiness and best music comes from having a shared history and purpose. FW: What do the Mummies wear for pajamas, and should Southwest Florida hoteliers fear for their sheet inventory? JM: We do not wear pajamas. It is really an inappropriate way to sleep. That said, if we unwrap too far, we tend to lose limbs. FW: Is there a curse of the mummies? JM: Hell yes, honey. We smell awful. oldenaplesvet349 14th Ave. South Naples, Florida 34102 239.331.3345 www.OldeNaplesVet.com Full Service Boutique Style Veterinary Hospital in the heart of Historic Olde Naples.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 tale of love and betrayal and death and forgiveness. Miami City Ballet goes hand-in-glove with the Phil; the company serves as the Phils dance company-in-residence and has since the center opened in 1989. Area dance aficionados who want to see the company under Edward Villella, its celebrated founding artistic director, however, need to grab their tickets soon. The 2012-13 season will be Mr. Villellas last at the helm. The companys board last fall negotiated for a change in leadership that officially has been decreed a mutual parting of ways, but is unofficially regarded as a forced ouster. The announcement rocked the dance world Mr. Villella is widely considered the greatest American-produced male ballet dancer of his time and in Southwest Florida, the change may ring even closer to the hearts of ballet enthusiasts. The company is incredible, and it has grown over the years into something fantastic, Roger Christy of Naples said as he waited for Giselle to begin. His wife, Donna Jean Christy, agreed. The depth of performance, I think, has developed, and the spectrum from classical to modern, she said. Mr. Villellas pending departure provides reason to pause and consider the 26-year history of his company and the close ties that have developed between himself, his troupe and the Southwest Florida audience. We were basically growing up with Naples as well as over here on the East Coast, he said from his Miami home earlier this month. When he arrived here in the 1980s, Florida was a cultural wasteland, he said. People would ask him what on earth he was doing there. Im a New Yorker, and New Yorkers dont leave New York, he quipped. Especially not New Yorkers of his magnitude. Mr. Villella made his fame under the great George Balanchine at the New York City Ballet. In many ways, he was the unlikeliest of ballet stars, a scrappy kid from Queens who attended the New York Maritime Academy and was a welterweight championship boxer. But dance was his true love, one he stumbled into inadvertently when, at 10 years old, he was forced to accompany his mother to his sisters ballet class. His career and accolades include a National Medal of Arts awarded by President Bill Clinton, producing PBS Dance in America series, being named a Kennedy Center honoree, dancing for President John F. Kennedys inauguration and being the first American male dancer to perform with the Royal Danish Ballet and the only American ever to be asked to dance an encore at the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow. Knowing his resume, a group of ballet enthusiasts in Miami approached him in the early 1980s asking for help drafting a plan to establish a ballet company in the vacuum that was South Florida. Mr. Villella did, and when they read the comprehensive report, they realized that there was no one more suited to lead a company than Mr. Villella himself. Ballet in Miami might have posed a career risk, but it was a calculated one. Mr. Villella discovered that some 1,000 people a day were moving to Florida, many of them from regions served by the New York City Ballet. His gamble paid off: On opening night in 1986, when he had hoped for 2,000 to 2,500 subscribers, he got 4,500. A company was born.A national reputationWhat started as a group of 17 has blossomed into an internationally acclaimed ballet company that competes with other major metropolitan troupes that have bigger budgets, deeper ranks and longer histories. Its not just a company. Miami City Ballet is an institution, said Iliana Lopez, who along with her husband, Franklin Gamero, was among the first dancers. The couple now teaches at Gulfshore Ballet in Fort Myers. Even as the company grew in national reputation, its the South and Southwest Florida audiences that really saw the benefit of Mr. Villellas work. The company visits Naples four times each season, staging an impressive array of ballets and delivering a performance quality that glows with the same energy and musicality that made its director famous. When I got the call from Villella, I knew I had to move. I just made the decision that I would sign him. You couldnt get any better, Myra Janco Daniels, the recently retired founder and CEO of the Phil, said. Mr. Villella had phoned her after seeing a television commercial soliciting donors and artists to help launch the Phil; Mrs. Daniels, who used to buy tickets to New York City Ballet specifically to see Mr. Villella dance, immediately offered a five-year contract, the longest in her business. Today, the house is usually packed at the Phil for MCB performances, and 100 households that contribute to The Phil target their philanthropic giving toward supporting dance. As the company developed, it grew an increasingly diverse repertoire and an audience that was well versed in the nuances of various works; Mr. Villellas mission includes a focus on dance education. The growth of that repertoire took time. The company focused on Balanchine classics at its outset; Mr. Villellas specialty as many of the leading male roles had been set on him. It gradually added full-length story ballets, first Balanchines The Nutcracker in 1990 and then Giselle in 2002. Today, the active repertoire is up to 92 ballets, nine of them world premieres. The body of works ranges from time-honored traditions like Giselle to the more contemporary pieces of Twyla Tharp and Jerome Robbins and Mr. Villellas own four-act The Neighborhood Ballroom. We now have one of the most amazing collections of ballets and choreographers anywhere, Mr. Villella said, highlighting what he believes is one of the hallmarks of his troupe. This season brought an even greater mix. The company premiered Symphonic Dancers by Russian choreographer Alexei Ratmansky, considered by some to be the worlds most in-demand choreographer, as well as Viscera by 25-year-old British phenom Liam Scarlett. I feel hes taken these Balanchine and Robbins ballets and revised them and given them a new life and a new energy that people havent seen in a very long time, said principal dancer Jennifer Carlynn Kronenberg, who has been with the company since Mr. Villella plucked her out of the School of American Ballet in 1994 when she was 17. To Ms. Kronenberg, its as if Mr. Villella remastered the color on an old movie. Its so much better and brighter. It pops out at you, she said. Were exposing the community to so many types of ballet, from classical to neoclassical to the ultra contemporary, Ms. Kronenberg added. A family atmosphereMCBs diverse repertoire is as good for dancers as it is the audience. Things just kept coming for me here, said principal dancer Patricia Delgado, 29, who joined the company immediately out of high school and has had no desire to go elsewhere. Her sister, Jeanette Delgado, 27, is also a principal dancer. Mr. Villella said he sought to create a company that he would have enjoyed dancing in. New York might be king of the artistic world, but many MCB performers wont trade Times Square for South Beach. I remember rehearsing one of my first principal roles, Afternoon of a Faun, and (Villella) said, Wow, youre ready. Youre ready. It was almost that sense of him saying, Youve done the work. Now go enjoy it, Patricia Delgado said. MCB describe their director as affirming and supportive, someone who cultivated a family-like atmosphere in which they could grow both as people and as performers. Theres one thing he says all the time: Its a mind-driven physicality, Ms. Kronenberg said, explaining the directors insistence on intellectual analysis. Theres an enormous depth to everything. And a tremendous energy to it. Thats what Ms. Lopez carries with her from her 18 years as a principal dancer with the MCB. Sometimes you go to see companies and they look bored like its another day on the job. But I think the energy that Mr. Villella brings sets (MCB) apart from other companies, she said.An enduring legacyThe company hit its pinnacle last summer during a three-week tour in Paris. Mr. Villella still sounds a little incredulous when he describes the French reception. It was the most incredible reaction and reception that I have ever seen in my lifetime, he said, describing a 9-minute, 52-second screaming ovation on closing night that died down only after the house lights came on. This from a man who received an encore at the Bolshoi. But his tenure abruptly ended upon his return to the United States. He wont speak publicly about what transpired between him and the board, saying only that, Its complicated, and I am departing a year from now. According to the company, the decision sprung from the need to solidify a successor for the 75-year-old Mr. Villella. The issue of succession is paramount for the survival and continued prosperity of Miami City Ballet, as it is with all artistic organizations. Edward Villella agreed to step down after the 2012-2013 season. We will honor that decision and concentrate on appointing a successor, spokesman Roberto Santiago said in a statement issued on behalf of the board of governors and MCB. Mr. Villellas daughter and company ballet mistress Crista Villella just shakes her head at that reasoning and said her father has planned every step of the companys development, including his eventual retirement. Its been horrible, she said as she took a break from mingling with audience members at the Phil prior to Giselle. The Miami City Ballet has been our life. We have put our heart and soul and energy and passion into it. The news hit Mrs. Daniels hard, too. Im shocked and sorry, and I think a great talent has been lost in dance. He will not stop, though. He has another chapter, she said. Indeed, Mr. Villella earlier this month was in New York exploring options. He said hes looking at a number of projects, though hes not revealing any specific plans. MCB has committed to another full season in Naples, said Kathleen von Bergen, Mrs. Daniels successor at the Phil. Of course we will be sad to see him go. Hes been a real presence in our community since 1989, she said. Dancers, saddened by the news, are introspective about how Mr. Villella shaped them into the performers they are today. (His pending departure) makes me look back on everything hes done for the company and me as a dancer, and makes me appreciate every day I had with him, Patricia Delgado said. Its been really special and amazing, Ms. Kronenberg said. We are all going to feel it. Hopefully his aura will be around. In her pre-performance discussion at the Phil last month, Ms. Villella explained to audience members how classics like Giselle survived in an age before recording devices. It has sustained itself because it was passed on from generation to generation, she explained. And it will be the same with her fathers legacy, his vision and energy and passion continuing to shine through in the dancers he trained.

After seeing A Picasso by The Naples Players, Im pretty certain Id never pick Pablo Picasso for a dinner partner. Artistically gifted, yes. But the man was an overgrown ego on two legs and, according to Jeffrey Hatchers play, a liar and an adulterer who was intentionally cruel to women. The set up for the one-act play: Its October 1941 in Paris; Picasso (David Gardner) has been brought to an underground bunker filled with artwork and artifacts the Nazis have taken from the Jews. Hes met there by Miss Fischer (Bonnie Knapp), from the Nazi Ministry of Culture. She has three pieces of art she wants him to authenticate. Are they his, or are they forgeries? The Nazis are going to hold an exhibit. Picasso is honored, and tells stories about the works Miss Fischer shows him. But when he discovers the Nazis believe its degenerate art and plan to burn all the works in the exhibition, he then tries to persuade her that all the paintings hes just so proudly claimed are actually forgeries. Director Theresa Bills, in her program notes, calls the play a cat and mouse game of art, sex, politics, creativity and survival. Mr. Gardner has the monster task of making us believe hes Picasso, but I had trouble with that. Of course, it would be very difficult, especially in community theater, to cast someone who physically resembles the artist or has his intense eyes. But it seems as if no attempt were made to make Mr. Gardner look at all like the iconic artist as far as hair color or cut; he actually looks more like an accountant from the 1970s. At one point, toward the end of the play, when he jauntily places a hat on his head and grins while talking in his heavily accented English, he looks like the bandleader/actor Desi Arnaz. Mr. Gardner is a great character actor (he was wonderful in Later Life with The Naples Players), but I just didnt believe he was Picasso. He struts, he gloats, he boasts. Mr. Gardners Picasso reeks of arrogance. He quotes the artists famous lines, including the one about how it took the rest of (his) life to learn how to draw like a child. Mr. Gardners Picasso lacks any seductive charm or magnetism. I was confused. Are we, the audience, supposed to fall in love with him or admire him? Ms. Knapp, the other half of this two-hander, is much more believable in her role. She, of course, doesnt have the burden of convincing us that shes a famous person in art history.But her fictional character comes across as a fully developed person, complete with a history and emotions.She looks the role, truly Aryan with her long blonde hair. (Ms. Knapp either dyed her hair for the part or is wearing a very believable wig.) Shes all business, no-nonsense, with a menacing air about her as she barks out questions and searches for loopholes and lies in Picassos answers. Great fun to watch throughout the performance, she doesnt wield a whip or a riding crop, but her demeanor gives the impression that she has one. Costume designer Dot Auchmoody has dressed her in a severe gray suit that hints at being a uniform. The set, by Jason Sherwood, is one of the best Ive seen at the Sugden. With multiple rows of shelving containing boxes, briefcases, paintings, picture frames, sculpture and manual typewriters, it gives the feeling of being in an underground vault. Theres even shelving hanging from the ceiling. The lighting (a couple of bare bulbs and a hanging lamp) and the props (a couple of wooden tables and chairs) are basic and utilitarian. Its an incredible set that seems to overgrow the small stage and include the audience in the bunker. Mr. Sherwood also designed the set for last seasons Rabbit Hole, also in the smaller Tobye Studio at the Sugden. Somehow, he has the skill of making the black box seem bigger than it is, as if its the interior of Dr. Whos tardis. The playwright is said to have written A Picasso in response to his critics. But the message isnt clear to me. Is Mr. Hatcher trying to say that artists are geniuses and therefore get a free pass to act however they like, no matter how atrociously? Is he saying that the average person and especially critics can never truly understand or appreciate his work? Or that despite efforts to destroy art, true art outlasts us all? While this oneact play doesnt even run for a full 90 minutes, it sometimes seems longer, dragging in spots. A Picasso, unfortunately, lacks dramatic tension. I dont know if thats because of Mr. Hatchers script or Ms. Bills direction or because they werent able to make me care (within the confines of the play) what happens to Picasso or his art. The ending of the play seems especially unbelievable. Mr. Gardner is an impressive actor, but miscast for this role. He shows moments of passion, especially when talking about his epic work, Guernica. But I never believed he was Picasso. And I never liked his character.Ms. Knapps performance is nuanced. She presents a complex woman with internal conflicts, and despite the ugliness of what she stands for and whom she works for, she is a compelling character. A Picasso is a mixed bag of a show.

If the woman is ignorant or nave, these men figure, theyll come across as intelligent in contrast, even if theyre not. The woman cant help but be in awe of them, they reason. The marked imbalance makes them feel smart, sophisticated, important although its obvious to everyone else how painfully insecure they are. Arnolphe, seeing how his married friends were cuckolded by their wives when the women had affairs, came up with what he thinks is a foolproof plan: He bought a 4-year-old girl and as her guardian, sent her to a convent to be raised by nuns, intentionally keeping her naive and ignorant of the ways of the world so that she would grow up to be submissive and demure. Now that shes 17, hes going to propose marriage. Shell be so simple-minded and so dependent upon him that shell never even think of cheating on him. Im marrying a fool, he chortles gleefully. No flies on me! And so begins Molieres The School for Wives, playing at Theatre Conspiracy through April 7. Arnolphe thinks hes ensured of being a husband far different from the kind he has witnessed and ridiculed so often. He finds out that this is not true. In spades, says Bill Taylor, director of the show and producing artistic director of Theatre Conspiracy.Barriers knocked downMolieres plays are wickedly funny; he pokes great fun at human foibles. Both provocative and innovative for his time, he wrote The School for Wives because his own wife cheated on him, Mr. Taylor says. For that day and age he knocked some barriers down, he adds.He describes The School for Wives as a combination of farce and comedy of manners. Set in the 17th century, it calls for more elaborate costumes and sets than usual for Theatre Conspiracy productions. Mr. Taylor made plans well in advance, however, renting some costumes from Sarasotas Asolo Theatre and having others made especially for this production by costume designer Diane Waldier.The School for Wives is written in rhyming verse, which is a challenge for the actors. They cant get lost and get thrown off (their lines). What are they going to do (then), make up their own rhymes on the spot? They have to nail this thing, Mr. Taylor explains. To avoid a sing-song sound throughout, he directed the actors to consider their lines as sentences, not as rhyming verse. Its very difficult to do, he admits. God bless, this is a huge role for the lead. He cast Scott Thomson in that capacity, as Arnolphe. Audiences might remember Mr. Thomson from Beckys New Car earlier this season at Theatre Conspiracy, in which he played a rich widower who falls in love with a woman who, unbeknownst to him, is already married. Describing the role of Arnolphe as a line-load-and-a-half, Mr. Taylor says Mr. Thomson has come through. Hes there, he has his lines down. But Mr. Thomson more than has his lines memorized. He delivers them with zeal and great comedic timing; they fall so naturally from his tongue its as if he were born in the 17th century. On opening night, he drew repeated peals of laughter as he smugly declared his superiority to women as well as to all the men he knows who have been cuckolded. Joining him on stage are: Rick Sebastian as his close friend, Chrysaide, and Brittany Albury as Agnes, the girl Arnolphe he plans to marry. Bernard Gomez plays Horace, a young man who sees Agnes and fancies her. Tom Marsh and Pamela Erdman play Arnolphes dim-witted house servants. John Saco and Robert Feigenblatt play minor roles.Still pertinentDespite the fact that The School for Wives was written 350 years ago, its very accessible and its story remains universal. (Cheating) will go on forever, Mr. Taylor says. Unfortunately, I dont think theres ever going to be a cure for that. As for parallels to contemporary society and politics, he refuses to comment on that. Im not looking at the underlying resonance. Im looking at some people getting some laughs out of the show, he says. If there are correlations to be drawn, so be it. Women, he declares, are smart enough to choose the way they live.

YesHeres some irony for you: The people most interested in seeing The Hunger Games are those whove read the book. But oddly, those who havent read the book will enjoy the movie more, because it works reasonably well on its own, though not as well as fans of the book will hope. Yes, I have read the book. And I can fairly say this is a solid, economical adaptation without any major changes (the author of the novel, Suzanne Collins, worked on the screenplay). The story is about Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), who in a dystopian future lives a paltry existence with her sister Prim (Willow Shields), their mother (Paula Malcolmson) and her best friend Gale (Liam Hemsworth). Every year, as stipulated by government decree, each of the 12 districts of the country must select a 12-to18-year-old male and female to fight to the death in the titular Hunger Games competition, which is broadcast nationwide. Often this means a tearful goodbye to friends and loved ones, which is what Katniss and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) do after theyre selected. Theyre then whisked away to the Capitol and introduced to their mentor, the perpetually drunk Haymitch (Woody Harrelson), and Katniss fashion designer Cinna (Lenny Kravitz), who becomes a trusted friend. For readers, the fun part of seeing the story visualized is that it takes us out of Katniss first-person perspective and allows for a more objective point of view. What this means is that rather than only seeing/knowing what Katniss knows as we read along, director Gary Ross is able to jump from Caesar (Stanley Tucci) in the broadcast booth to Haymitch looking on to the Gamemakers manipulating the game. Viewers see whats going on behind the scenes in a way that we could only presume happened in the book. The futuristic costume, set and production designs are top notch, but Ross (Seabiscuit) is not adept at shooting action. Many of the up-tempo moments are rushed and clutter ed with no sense of space or clarity. This is frustrating because the jerky camera and quick edits result in befuddlement instead of heightened tension. Then again, maybe Ross knows this and avoided action whenever possible. The biggest knock on the film and the book has a similar problem is that it takes too long to get to the games. The running time of 142 minutes isnt an issue until you see that the first 80 or so lead up to the games, leaving the remaining 60 to rush through the games and get to the conclusion that sets up the sequel (you do know the book is part of a trilogy, right?). More time at the games and less with the minutiae of training in the Capitol wouldve been dearly welcome.Lovers of the book will have their qualms and will probably be a smidge disappointed, but The Hunger Games is certainly no travesty. And if nothing else, its nowhere near Twilight awful. 21 Jump Street (Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube) Youthful police officers Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) go undercover at a high school to infiltrate a drug ring. Off-the-wall funny and with great spirit, this serves as proof that cruddy old TV shows can make darn good movies. Rated R.Seeking Justice (Nicolas Cage, January Jones, Guy Pearce) After his wife (Jones) is savagely attacked, Will (Cage) makes a deal with a stranger named Simon (Pearce) to take care of the assailant. But when Will has to return the favor, trouble ensues. Its a good, tense thriller thatll have you questioning your own morality when its over. Rated R.Casa de mi Padre (Will Ferrell, Diego Luna, Genesis Rodriguez) Armando (Ferrell) must protect his fathers Mexican ranch from a drug lord (Gael Garcia Bernal). Its a silly Will Ferrell comedy in every way, except one: Its entirely in Spanish. Unfortunately, the comedy doesnt consistently translate through subtitles. Rated R.

Gurney, plays at Florida Repertory Theatre in Fort Myers April 3-22.The New York Times called the show, which is making its regional premiere at Florida Rep after a successful 2011 Off-Broadway run, one of Mr. Gurneys most enjoyable plays a gratifying, engaging, touching comedy. With intelligence and wit, it tells a story about balancing long-held family traditions in a changing world.If you can remember being in a wedding or if youve ever thrown one or if you can even just remember your sister getting married, then you know that you can never underestimate the stress involved with weddings, says Chris Clavelli, Florida Rep associate artistic director and director of the show.Thats why everyone can relate to Black Tie in some way, he adds. Its very funny, very honest. Black Tie offers a sharply humorous look at a family in distress trying to organize a destination wedding in the Adirondacks. The father of the groom simply wants to make a memorable toast, but instead must defend the timehonored ways of his white Anglo-Saxon Protestant heritage to his son and the bride-to-be. Cultures clash when a surprise guest threatens to throw convention out the window. It seems balancing the old way with the new may prove too messy for a black tie affair. The generation gap has never been funnier. The production stars Florida Rep regulars Peter Thomasson, Carrie Lund, Adam Jones and Hallie Wage. Michael Shelle makes his Florida Rep debut. Mr. Thomasson and Ms. Lund were seen earlier this season in Rumors and Its a Wonderful Life. Mr. Jones, also a familiar face at Florida Rep, was seen most recently in last seasons King o the Moon and in 2010s You Cant Take It with You. Ms. Wage, an acting intern with the company this season, appeared in the companys Its a Wonderful Life last winer and is currently touring with Florida Reps Childrens Theatre Series. A veteran of regional and New York stages, Mr. Shelle comes to Fort Myers from New York. He appeared in the first national tour of Titanic and the international tour of Camelot with Richard Harris.

Fuze Publishing. 314 pages. $19.95. Did young and gorgeous hotshot Navy flyer Audrey Richards crash her plane through incompetence, or was her flight sabotaged either mechanically or psychologically by jealous, zealous male rivals in the Naval Air community? Whatever the official story, her former Naval Academy roommate, Lt. Bridget Donovan, feels compelled to find the truth. Lt. Donovan, from her junior post in the Navys public relations establishment, has to get the story out to handle the media. However, she senses that the Navys story might not be the real story. How does she walk the line between doing her job in an institution wrapped in bureaucracy and legalisms and doing honor to the memory of the classmate with whom she had an uneasy friendship? The author organizes her narrative into alternating chapters that develop two timelines. One follows a few weeks in the early fall of 2003, taking us from the news of Lt. Richards disastrous take-off from an aircraft carrier and tracing Lt. Donovans troubled pursuit of both military duty and personal redemption, which tests her honor and courage as she positions herself more and more in harms way. The other timeline covers the two womens years at the Naval Academy from plebe summer of 1986 through graduation in May 2000. These chapters offer a splendidly detailed representation of Naval Academy life from the perspective of female midshipmen, always a highly visible minority in a world of male traditions. Readers discover how a super-driven character like Richards can at one and the same time irritate her classmates and push them to unexpected achievement. Donovan knows that Richards encouragement and example allowed an insecure, faltering plebe (Donovan herself) to hang in there, improve and make it through with some degree of distinction. Onward and upward was Richards cry at each and every obstacle to be overcome. But how many did she step on as she climbed (before she flew) onward and upward? Super-achiever Rich-ards w as a show-off. She wanted to be noticed. She wanted to be tested. She would not be intimidated or fail. Within and without the walls of Bancroft Hall, that immense dormitory in which all midshipmen live, there was much to intimidate her. Some of it was institutional the same kind of pressure and humiliation that all midshipmen have to deal with. Some was cultural the special kinds of intimidation reserved for women, considered aliens by many male classmates. And some was directed at a special few by a special few. A secret cadre of midshipmen and officers took it upon themselves to determine whose careers were to be blocked through severe intimidation and psychological warfare. Those targets would find black wings in their closets, wrapped in their clothing, sliding out of their homework. These symbolic threats were only the most obvious means of booby-trapping the environment in order to cripple the performance of the alleged misfits. Audrey Richards, who could out-pushup the men while making them drool over her stunning beauty, was a target relentlessly pursued, especially in her first-class (senior) year as graduation and service selection approached. In addition, there were problems she made for herself like getting pregnant, which further jeopardized her chance for success. However, with a little help from Donovan, she made it she graduated and was accepted to flight school. For many, this seemed to mean she was yet, at some point, to be stopped. After all, she was getting away with too much. She was getting by on her looks. She was taking advantage of a double standard that set the bar lower for women. The rarified world that the author takes us into is one she knows well. Like her central characters, Ms. Jabs is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy. Though much of the novels strength lies in the authors ability to make her settings speak, it is her handling of characterization and relationships that makes Black Wings truly an outstanding debut novel: Donovan and her married boyfriend Commander Barrett, Donovan and her mother, Donovan and Mrs. Richards (Audreys mother), Donovan and her Pentagon boss Capt. Fangmeyer. Most importantly, Donovan and Richards. For suspense, military insights, intelligent framing of issues and a disquieting sensation of spiritual queasiness, Black Wings will please many and astound more than a few. and upward?

It was an exceptional find, since it was the first near-complete royal burial site uncovered in the Valley of the Kings. King Tutankhamens golden death mask found in the tomb has, for many, become the defining image of ancient Egypt. Mr. Carters firsthand account of the discovery is riveting to read even 90 years after the fact: With trembling hands I made a tiny breach in the upper left-hand corner. Widening the hole a little, I inserted the candle and peered in ... At first I could see nothing ... but presently as my eyes grew accustomed to the light, details of the room within emerged slowly from the mist, strange animals, statues and gold everywhere the glint of gold. For the moment an eternity it must have seemed to others standing by I was struck dumb with amazement, and when Lord Carnarvon, unable to stand the suspense any longer, inquired anxiously, Can you see anything, it was all I could do to get out the words, Yes, wonderful things. British archaeologist and Egyptologist Joyce Tyldesley examines in fascinating detail what archaeologists and scholars have learned about this young king and his significance in Egypts history. She begins by explaining how Tutankhamens tomb was lost, then located again after years of well-reasoned archaeological detective work. Drawing on journal entries, reports and newspaper accounts from the 1920s, Ms. Tyldesley painstakingly documents the discoveries made as the tomb was cleared of its goods. The Tutankhamen family and its history are reconstructed to provide a more complete picture of the young king and the era in which he lived. The result is the fullest account to date of the discovery, life and times of Tutankhamen.

Our ancestors enjoyed jokes any day of the year. By the 1850s, potters were making puzzle jugs with holes that let liquid dribble down a shirt front and beer mugs with a ceramic frog or snake inside waiting to appear when the beer was gone. There were bronze figures that came apart to show a different figure inside, and odd ceramic birds that were really bottles with heads that could be removed. One famous American potter made pig-shaped bottles with a saying on the rear that started, In a hogs ... And there were numerous bottles by the German firm Schafer and Vater that were shaped like comic men and women. But the best joke for children of the 1930s involved a tobacco tin. Prince Albert was a very popular brand of tobacco first made in 1907. It was named for the future king of England, Edward VII (called Albert by his family), and his picture was on the front. It was packaged in a rectangular red tin container with a flip lid. Since many tobaccos were sold in bags, not tins, it was special. The ultimate joke, still quoted today, is a childs call to a drugstore: Do you have Prince Albert in a can? The druggists answer, Yes, was followed by the young pranksters response, Then let him out, followed by peals of laughter. The brand also used Chief Joseph, a Nez Perce Indian chief, as an advertising symbol in 1913-14. A large tin sign picturing both the chief and a Prince Albert tobacco tin sold recently for $8,400, proving that Prince Albert tobacco is no joke. Q: I inherited an old smoking stand. It has a label on the bottom that says, H.T. Cushman Mfg. Co., Bennington, Vermont. The stand is 26 inches high and has an ashtray on the top, a pipe holder on each side, a drawer and a small cabinet. Please give me some information about the maker and value. A: H.T. Cushman Manufacturing Co. was founded by Henry Theodore Cushman in 1889 and remained in business until 1980. It made all sorts of things, from pencil boxes to furniture. The company introduced smoking accessories in the 1910s and continued to make them through the 0s. Most Cushman smoking stands included a humidor plus storage space for cigar papers, cigar c utters, matches, pipe tobacco and other smoking items. Today, Cushman smoking stands sell for $150 to $300. Q: I have a pottery pitcher painted gold with a long-tailed orange, blue and green parrot-shaped handle. The impressed diestamped mark on the bottom of the pitcher is Camark Pottery within an outline KOVELS: ANTIQUES Classic jokes immortalized as collectibles i w r b C a t terryKOVELnews@floridaweekly.com
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 C29 This lithographed tin sign, 22 by 28 inches, shows Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce American Indian tribe in full headdress, the red Prince Albert tobacco tin and the slogan, The National Joy Smoke. It sold in December 2011 for $8,400 at a Jeffrey S. Evans auction in Mt. Crawford, Va. Both the picture of the Indian chief and the famous Prince Albert tin added to the value.of the state of Arkansas. Do you know anything about the company? The pitcher is in perfect condition, and Im wondering what its worth. A: Camark Pottery was the trademark used by Camden Art Tile and Pottery Co. of Camden, Ark. The company was founded by Samuel J. Jack Carnes in 1926. Your parrot-handled pitcher is a well-known Camark specialty design called the Waffle Batter Pitcher. In the 1920s, a New York City retailer had been selling similar pitchers made by an Italian company. When that company could no longer provide the pitchers, the retailer sent a sample to Camark, and Camark started making the pitchers for both the retailer and its own customers. The pitchers were made in a number of different colors and sizes and were produced for several years. The style of mark on your pitcher dates it to 1927-. If its in great condition, its worth $100 or more. Q: I now own some beautiful cut-glass pieces that belonged to my grandparents. After a recent move, I discovered that one of the bowls had split in half. Is it possible to fix this?A: It probably is possible, assuming the split is clean and in a cut, not clear, part of the glass. The monetary value of the bowl is lost, but its sentimental value, appearance and use can be saved. If the bowl is large and youre worried about repairing it yourself, look online for a professional who repairs glass. If you prefer repairing it yourself, prepare a work surface, have toothpicks and some kind of clamping material on hand and buy some clear epoxy glue. Apply the glue carefully, wipe the excess away and clamp the two parts together using masking tape or some other method. You can find detailed instructions online. Once repaired, the bowl can be used to hold fruit, but it may leak if filled with water. Dont wash it in the dishwasher or put it in the refrigerator. Any change in temperature can cause problems.Tip: Avoid salt water and chlorine when wearing good jewelry. They can erode metal and dim the shine on stones. Hair spray and perfume also can dull many gemstones. Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

One advantage of this procedure is that it keeps the defenders from breaking new suits, but the primary purpose is to completely deplete declarers trumps, after which the defenders will be in position to cash whatever cards remain in their long suits. When declarer has a plentiful supply of trumps, he can usually withstand this attack on his trump suit. But when he has only seven trumps divided 5-2 or 4-3, his situation often becomes precarious. Consider this deal where South reaches four spades as shown. West leads a heart, and hearts are continued. Declarer ruffs, and if he now draws trumps, exhausting his trumps in the process, he goes down one. He finishes with only nine tricks -five spades and four clubs. When he leads a diamond at trick 11, the defenders score the ace of diamonds and two more heart tricks. This result should not come as any great surprise to South. The 4-2 division of the opposing trumps is more likely than any other, occurring nearly half the time. To defuse this potential threat to his contract, declarer should adopt a more cautious approach. After trumping the heart at trick two, he should lead the jack of diamonds. If the jack holds the trick, he can then draw trumps and romp home with 10 tricks. If the jack of diamonds is taken by the ace and a heart is returned, South must be careful not to ruff, which would reduce him to three trumps and leave him prey to a 4-2 trump split. Instead, he discards a club or a diamond, leaving his trump holding intact. A heart continuation can then be ruffed in dummy, after which he has the rest of the tricks and his contract.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC38 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 Here are some capsule summaries from previous reviews:Figs Grille, 25987 Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 390-1700: Sam Tadros, the chef behind the popular Sam-Bucco Bistro in North Naples, has another winning concept with this exploration of the cuisines of Turkey, Spain, Morocco, Lebanon and France. When you cross the threshold, its easy to forget youre in a commercial strip center. Egyptian tapestries adorn the walls in the garnet and gold dining room. Ceiling lamps evoke Morocco and ethnic music plays softly in the background, but the effect is understated. Whichever country you decide to visit for your main course, your meal should begin with the mezze platter of hummus and baba ganoush as well as charry and sweet grilled eggplant chunks and cucumber salad served with lightly pickled vegetables. You cant go wrong with one of several Turkish kebabs or with the filet medallions with grilled shrimp, garnished lavishly with caramelized onions, port wine sauce and fig chutney. Lush (chocolate marquise) or light (lemon semifreddo), dessert shouldnt be missed either. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2011Grouper & Chips, 338 Ninth St. N., Naples; 643-4577: In an older strip plaza across U.S. 41 from the downtown NCH campus, Grouper & Chips is a selfdescribed small unpretentious hole-inthe-wall restaurant. It is indeed so small, that you might find yourself rubbing elbows with other parties or waiting an hour for table (reservations are not accepted). Takeout and delivery are options, but then youd miss out on the warm hospitality of the staff. Besides, once you order, food is quickly delivered. The menu is heavy on fried foods, but the conch fritters and grouper did not suffer from greasy excess; the fried shrimp, however, were overwhelmed by batter. You wouldnt expect to find it in a place like this, but the bouillabaisse is loaded with lobster, sea scallops, mussels, shrimp and chunks of grouper and is worth trying. Dessert shooters petite servings of Key lime pie and chocolate mousse are the perfect way to end a meal here. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2011IM Tapas, 965 Fourth Ave. N., Naples; 403-8272: Small plates they may be, but the dishes that emerge from the kitchen here are packed with flavor and style. Each looks like a work of art and possesses big, fresh flavors that reveal the passionate dedication of its inspired creators, chefs Isabel Polo Pozo and Mary Shipman, experts in this inspired Spanish cuisine. A polished staff and stylish dining room add to the warmth and conviviality of a meal at this off-the-beaten-path gem. If theres a less-than-wondrous dish on the menu, I havent found it yet, despite several visits. Among my favorites are chorizo in cider, beets napoleon, garlic-laced white anchovies, diver scallops on octopus slivers, spinach wilted a la Catalana, wild bonito with pomegranate seeds and pomegranate foam, and a plate of stellar artisanal cheeses. Situated a few miles north of the citys tonier dining areas, it surpasses many of the more high-profile establishments in both cuisine and style. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2010Margaritas Mexican Restaurant, 8971 U.S. 41, Naples; 431-6206: Margaritas is an offshoot of a Mexican restaurant by the same name on Marco Island. Succulent hand-pulled meats and fresh seafood are tucked into tender tortillas, served with brightly flavored house-made salsas and sauces. Bracing margaritas in fruit flavors such as watermelon and pomegranate are served on the rocks or frozen, headlining a tequila-heavy cocktail list that goes on for days. The rustic charro beans, whole pintos laced with oregano and chunks of pork, are a revelation and theyre just a side dish. The taco trio miniature corn tortillas overflowing with shredded beef, chicken and pork is a good way to start, as is the sumptuous queso fundido, a fondue of warm, silky white cheese garnished with diced scallions, jalapenos and chorizo that may send your eyes rolling back in your head. Available with three stuffings, the tamales are exemplary. A seafood-packed Cancun burrito was big enough for two, and its ingredients all perfectly cooked. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2011Tierneys Tavern, 799 Walkerbilt Road, Naples; 591-3837: Owners of The Bay House have rolled out a new, more casual concept in what used to be an expansive bar next to the restaurant. At Tierneys Tavern, you can savor similarly Southerninspired and equally well-executed food for much less money. Entrees top out at $24, and its possible to dine well for much less. The menus coastal cuisine spans a broad range, from the North Atlantic to Carolina Low Country, around the Florida peninsula and up the gulf to New Orleans. The Southern Collection is a good way to sample a range of appetizers, including Charleston crab dip, pimento cheese and house-made pickles. The Sea BLT layers of arugula, fried green tomatoes and fresh seafood salad sprinkled with roasted corn and crumbled bacon would delight any discerning palate. Perched on the banks of the Cocohatchee River, the restaurant and bar are nestled among old oaks and mangroves and have plenty of windows for enjoying the unique vista.

Handsome Harrys Third Street Bistro is a historical landmark that has been providing memorable dining experiences since 2006, says Mr. Hernandez. That success, combined with his respect for Executive Chef Tony Biagetti and the appeal of the neighborhoods commitment to historical preservation, motivated him to buy the restaurant.
