www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2012 April, what a month. From the Latin aperire, to open. To open the earth, to open our eyes and hearts, to open up the possibilities. To open our wallets (for the IRS, of course). A month said by modernists to be the cruelest. Thats not true for Mitt Romney, not this April. But for Rick Santorum, perhaps it is. Now hell have to steer hard to port (left) if he wants to help another man reach the White House. And that must seem extraordinarily cruel to a starboard-steering soul so rightly certain of himself and everybody else. But never mind them now. Let me review what April has brought or wrought historically. In April, Ponce de Leon discovered Florida (probably in 151 3) and claimed it for himself and his ilk (the Spanish). Anyone would have, although sugarsand beaches swarming with frolicking youth thats you, I take it, because its sure not me seem significantly more claimable than what he found. Why would you want a sugar-sand beach swarming with mosquitoes, extremely hostile Native Americans, and mangroves? In April, the United States Marines attacked Okinawa in the ferocious last Pacific battle of World War II (1945). In April, Jackie Robinson first entered the Major Leagues (1947, the same month Truman kicked off the Marshall Plan to help our former enemies), and Hank Aaron tied and then surpassed Babe Ruths homerun record of 714 (1974). In April, Robert Perry became the first human to reached the North Pole (1909), the Civil War ended with Lees surrender to Grant at Appomattox (1865), Thomas Jefferson was born (1748) and decades later made the Louisiana Purchase (1803). He bought that vast tract from the French under Napoleon all or parts of 15 contemporary states stretching from Louisiana to the Canadian border with Montana. Total acquisition: 828,000 square miles. Total cost: about 3 cents per acre, or $15 million. What a great month for T.J., but not so much for Napoleon. In April a few years later (1814), the Emperor of France had to abdicate his position, not surprisingly. Births and deaths, triumphs and tragedies, the great exodus of the Jews out of Egypt and into Liberation celebrated by Passover this year from April 6 to April 14 theyve all played a part in this blooming month. The Titanic sank in April, which wasnt so cool, but Apollo 13 took off and later (somehow) splashed down safely, which was. Abe Lincoln and Martin Luther King Jr. were both assassinated in April. Franklin Roosevelt died, William Shakespeare was born and died on the same day 52 years later (April 23), the first Social Security checks were sent out in 1937 (talk about a spring bloom), and Hitler was married and committed suicide all in about 24 hours (1945). And dont forget that President James Buchanan was born this month, along with Booker T. Washington, Betty Ford, Edward R. Murrow and Samuel Morse, to name a few. Paul Revere made his midnight ride and the shot heard round the world was fired in Lexington, Mass., to start the Revolutionary War, both in April. (I hope you knew that.) George Washington took office as the first American president not king, not conqueror, not general, but president on April 30, 1789, 14 y ears after that noisy shot. So what does it all mean? It means that spring has sprung. Both my oldest and my youngest sons were born in April within one day of each other, although 22 years apart (1980 and 2002), and if that isnt glorious spring, I dont know what is. For me and Geoffrey Chaucer, the 14th-century poet, this is a month of pilgrimage, of storytelling, of celebration and rejoicing.Chaucers famous Canterbury Tales describes a winner-take-all storytelling contest between 30 men and women traveling from London about 60 miles to the Canterbury Cathedral, each storyteller aiming to win free lodging and food for the best story. He begins with these lines: Whan that Aprille with his shoures soote The droghte of March hath perced to the roote. Than longen folk to goon on pilgrimages.Of course, my dad died in April too young, and that wasnt any fun. After that for a while, I thought the modernists were right. T. S. Eliot puts it like this, in the first lines of his most famous poem, The Wasteland (1922), right under the Section I title, The burial of the dead:April is the cruellest month, breeding Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing Memory and desire, stirring Dull roots with spring rain.But I say horsepucky. I can do all that memory and desire nonsense in any month, except for the lilacs, but we dont have them here at my place anyway. Instead, we have a clutch of softly purple impatiens, a butt ery yellow orchid with a red center, a luscious single periwinkle in a near-pink hue, and a scatter of blue lobelia all of it improbably beautiful. Still, the faint scent of orange blossoms, mostly a March phenomenon, drifts across our senses like distant perfume, an April nod to November fruit. And at night fireflies dance through black woods like tiny emissaries from the stars, as buzzed with hopeful kinesis as anything in the universe. Go out and see, pilgrim. Open yourself to the world.

It is the system of limited and carefully divided government powers that he had a large hand in crafting and defended so ably in The Federalist Papers that is at stake in the contest over the constitutionality of the individual mandate. If the mandate stands, it will be the latest blow to Madisons scheme, which is the best architecture for self-government yet devised by man, but has been steadily worn down over time. It is a damning indictment of contemporary Washington that, overall, it is so hostile to the Madisonian ethos. He is a most inconvenient Founding Father since he tells us: No, the federal government cant do whatever it wants; no, we cant just all get along; no, we cant rush to pass whatever legislation deemed a cant wait priority by the president. Now, grow up. In the mind of contemporary progressivism, these words of Madison from The Federalist Papers simply dont compute: The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. They are an antiquated 18th-century sentiment unsuited to our more complex and more sophisticated time, to be ignored when not actively scorned. So, as he famously wrote, ambition must be made to counteract ambition.But this division of power is meant to maximize accountability and competition in the belief that the undue accumulation of power in any one source is, in Madisons words, the very definition of tyranny. Madison concerned himself with limits on government because there is a degree of depravity in mankind, which requires a certain degree of circumspection and distrust. So, as he famously wrote, ambition must be made to counteract ambition. He would have no patience for gooey discussions on the Sunday shows about the divisiveness of our political life. The latent causes of faction, for Madison, are sown in the nature of man. He was a pioneer in fighting the sort of partisan battles we now look down upon and rue. Nor would Madison be moved by the lamentations that Congress isnt passing enough legislation quickly enough. He wanted a Senate that balky, frustrating upper body to check the rush to enshrine momentary causes into law. In a passage that could have been written as commentary on the handiwork of Nancy Pelosis Congress, he argued it will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood. In his book on Madisons political thought, American Compact, Gary Rosen notes that as Madison feared, utility rather than constitutionality has become the ultimate test for public policy. The debate over ObamaCare at the time of its passage focused on its cost, its workability and its aggrandizing tendency more than its constitutionality. For Madison, Rosen continues, constitutional limits were the deepest source of republican dignity, the bulwarks that he expected citizens to defend in order to remind themselves of their sovereignty. Would that they were once again. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Forget fear of flying; fear airport screeningThere was terror in the skies this week over Texas, caused not by a terrorist but by a pilot a Flight Standards captain, no less. JetBlue Airways Capt. Clay Osbon, flying Flight 191 from New Yorks John F. Kennedy International Airport to Las Vegas, began moving up and down the aisle after the jet was airborne, ranting, according to several passengers, about Iraq, Israel, al-Qaida and bombs, calling on passengers to recite the Lords Prayer, saying that they were all going down. An off-duty pilot in the cabin went to the cockpit to help the co-pilot with the emergency landing, while passengers and crew subdued Osbon. Osbon, whod been with JetBlue almost since its founding, was taken to the hospital, suspended with pay, then criminally charged with interfering with a flight crew. Thats enough to inspire a fear of flying in anyone. But just getting to your airplane these days may present a greater risk to your health than the actual flight. New airport security screening technology, primarily backscatter X-ray devices, have come under increased scrutiny, as their effectiveness is questioned amid concerns that the radiation exposure may cause cancer. Adding to health concerns are both the graphic nature of the images captured, essentially nude photos of every person passing through the machine, and the aggressive and for some, humiliating nature of the alternative to the scans, the enhanced pat-down by a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agent. Republican Sen. Susan Collins introduced a bill that would require independent laboratory testing of the X-ray backscatter machines, exactly what a group of University of California, San Francisco scientists called on the Obama administration to do in April 2010. Responding to the TSA claim (provided by the manufacturer, Rapiscan) that the radiation dose is less than the dose one receives from eating one banana, professor John Sedat and others wrote: While the dose would be safe if it were distributed throughout the volume of the entire body, the dose to the skin may be dangerously high. ... There is good reason to believe that these scanners will increase the risk of cancer to children and other vulnerable populations (including pregnant women). When this risk is multiplied over 700 million annual travelers, Michael Love, Ph.D., the manager of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine X-ray facility, told Discover magazine, someone is going to get skin cancer. The European Union has banned the machines. While flying the past few weekends, I refused to go through the scanners, which is every passengers right, although the option is almost never indicated anywhere (the Collins bill also requires clear signage). I was made to wait while TSA employees were clearly available to conduct what is euphemistically called an enhanced pat-down. The agents aggressive questioning of my decision to opt out was matched only by her aggressive pat-down when I would not give in. Arriving back in New York, a friend who had just flown in from Chicagos OHare International Airport recounted how the TSA agent had her hands down the front of my friends pants and said, Feels like youve lost some weight! Who gains? The two manufacturers of the full-body scanners have powerful friends. As reported in The Hill and The Washington Post, L-3 Communications, maker of the millimeter wave scanner, hired lobbyist Linda Daschle, wife of former Sen. Tom Daschle. Rapiscan, the maker of the X-ray backscatter machine, reportedly paid $1 million to the Chertoff Group, run by former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Michael Chertoff, while Chertoff appeared in the media touting the value of the machines. Each machine costs the taxpayer about $150,000, but that is only the purchase; installation, then staffing, costs much more. TSA agents themselves may face the greatest risks. A recent TSA inspector generals report acknowledged that wing shields be installed to further reduce radiation exposure levels for backscatter operators. It also noted that TSA employees reported insufficient time for training on the machines. Michael Grabell, a reporter with ProPublica who has written extensively on full-body scanners, told me: Radiation technicians have told some of the TSA screeners that If I were on these machines, Id be wearing a radiation badge. But the TSA has refused to let them. All these concerns have led the nonprofit Electronic Privacy Information Center to sue the TSA and DHS, seeking a halt to the use of the scanners, at least until independent testing of the risks is performed, and the results made public. Until we know that these full-body scanners are safe, Im opting out. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2012 Im truly amazed by the fascinating life stories I find on the Paradise Coast. One morning at a mens breakfast I was fortunate enough to sit next to Pete Abeles. I learned enough about him that day that I knew I wanted to read his books and have him as a guest on my radio show. Pete was born in Vienna, Austria, in 1931. His father, Ernst, owned and operated a wholesale shoe business (and was Businessman of the Year in Vienna in 1936). Petes mother, Carla ruled the roost with an iron hand. Carla and Ernst had one other son, Robert, who would ultimately become a famous scientist and chairman of the biochemistry department at Brandies University. As Pete relates it, the family was living a comfortable merchant-class life when, in 1938, the Nazis marched into Vienna. A few weeks after the occupation, the Germans burst in to Ernsts office, demanded the keys to the business and the combination to the safe, and bodily threw him in to the street. Not long after that, Carla was accosted by Nazis and forced to scrub the street with her coat. The family finally escaped in 1939, aboard the last ship to leave Rotterdam. Eight days after departure, the passengers (almost exclusively refugees) were overwhelmed by the sight of the Statue of Liberty as the ship arrived in New York Harbor. Proir to leaving for America, Ernst desperately sought sponsorship and support in America. He contacted families in Chicago that had the same surname. Even though he learned they were not related, they invited the Abeles family to live in their homes until they were able to secure their own home and livelihood. While the Abeles managed to escape the external predators, the Nazis, the family had its had its own internal emotional predator Petes mother, Carla. When she died at the age of 99, Pete had felt no sense of loss or emotion for her. This bothered him, and he confided in his good friend, Tom Hicks, about his lack of grief. The conversation led to Tom helping Pete write a book about his family and childhood titled Otto, the Boy at the Window. Carla was a demeaning, unloving and uncompassionate mother and wife who intimidated everyone in the family. On the trip to America, the Abeles family was assigned a cabin suite while other families were in tighter quarters. Carla assumed she received the larger room because of her social position prior to the occupation. In reality, the rooms were assigned alphabetically. Pete recalled that when he stutter ed as a child, his mother would shake him violently by the shoulders. He later came to understand that his lifelong g o o Y d s bobHARDEN e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org PROFILES IN PARADISEA lesson in surviving predators, external and internal Talking points with Pete AbelesSomething thats been on your mind: The fate of our country.

Amazingly, Otto, the Boy at the Window turned out to be a story of love and redemption. In the process of writing it, Pete was able to gain an understanding of and even forgive his mother. Pete now owns a recycling company called Flom Corp. He and his wife Bonnie split their time between Bethesda, Md., and Naples. They have five children and 11 grandchildren. In addition to being an author, he writes editorials for local newspapers and speaks frequently about his life experiences. A world traveler, he also enjoys golf, tennis and senior weight lifting. Petes first book has been re-written and performed as a stage play, and he has recently co-authored Otto, The Man at the Wheel: 80 Long Years to Learn 40 Short Lessons (www.ottothebook.com).

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2012 thought homemade beer would go along with it. As Mr. Loche soon discovered, homebrewing provided a chance to unwind. I thought the reward was going to be the beer, he says. I found out making it is more pleasant than I expected. The first boil takes three hours. Its not complicated but you cant do anything else. You cant multitask unless youre drinking beer. Your internal clock starts slowing down. The popularity of homebrewing has spawned a handful of local beer clubs and a new Naples business that sells the ingredients, equipment and assorted paraphernalia for beginners and veterans. In fact, former Las Vegas resident Matthew Winthers research led him right to Naples. A homebrewer, computer tech and graphic designer sick of getting laid off of job after job, Mr. Winther opened Brewing Daily last October. I decided to start my own brew store and looked for a place that had a homebrewer community but no store. Business, he says, is brewing. The thing about homebrewing is most people think its not possible until someone hands them a beer they made, then they think Hey, I can do this. Homebrewers may describe in laborious detail the process involved in turning water and other ingredients into beer. But really, its not that complicated. It takes little effort, doesnt often go awry and the payoff is two cases of fresh brew that costs 50 cents to $1 a bottle to produce. The only drawback may be the wait. Batches can take three to six weeks to reach drinkability, some up to two years. Not a problem for serious homebrewers who tend to have several batches in various stages of fermentation plus plenty already bottled or on tap. Angie and Josh DuBois of Fort Myers have four percolating; Mr. Loche has six. Fort Myers resident Jim Lynch makes three batches at a time, and currently has six types of beer stocked in his refrigerator. Three cases are tucked away in Dan DeLisis wifes closet. Homebrewing isnt for those who favor macrobrews. I always tell people if they like Miller Lite, they might as well not bother, says Sandy Zahorchak, whose Time to Make Wine in Fort Myers sells beer kits and offers a beer club that meets every six weeks. If you like craft beer and World of Beer, then homebrewing is for you. Many local brewers were already into craft beers before going the do-ityourself route. I used to drink different Sam Adams flavors, then I tried Sierra Nevada pale ale, says Jim DeShields, of Cape Coral. Thats what made me really want to start brewing, if I could make beers that taste as good as that. His first was a Boston ale made from a Samuel Adams kit a birthday present from his wife. It was good enough to make me want to brew a second batch, says DeShields, who now has three kegs, a refrigerator and freezer chest devoted to his hobby. He even entered a homebrew in a national Samuel Adams contest. It scored well but was labeled incorrectly and disqualified, he says. Id been making wine but was dying to learn how to make beer, says Mr. Lynch, the terminal manager for maintenance at Southwest Florida International Airport. A friend got me a kit for Christmas a couple of years ago and Ive been making my own since. I rarely buy beer. I like my own better. Mr. Winther says Southwest Floridas homebrewing community includes an assorted demographic. We have young guys and older guys. Women, too. Mrs. DuBois discovered the world of homebrewing four years ago with her then-boyfriend, nowhusband Josh. Perhaps fitting, their first date was a Fourth of July beer bash. Neither of us were Budweiser fans; we started exploring different styles, she says. We got into homebrewing pretty quickly. We gave away honey mead as wedding favors. The couple prefers stronger beers with higher alcohol content. We dont really brew anything under seven or eight percent, says Mrs. DuBois. We brew big beers. The honey mead was 14 percent. First-timers, says Mr. Winther, are often fearful of creating bad beer or poison. Its really not hard at all, he says. You pay attention to a few minor things and youre going to make good beer. Neophytes tend to start with an easy kit with extracts and work their way up to more complex varieties and milling their own grains. Its funny because its usually not the first batch of beer they ruin, says Mr. Winther. Its usually the fourth or fifth because theyve started to relax.ExperimentationJust like budding oenophiles, homebrewers begin to expand their horizons, learning more about their hobby and passion and experimenting with different styles and tastes, even obscure, regional favorites not distributed in Florida. Many enthusiasts have been able to produce almost exact replicas of indie favorites. I made a black-as-night Irish stout, which surprised me, says Mr. Loche. I dont usually like dark beer but I liked this. Im not a beer snob and never was; I would drink whatever. My palate started noticing the different, and Im more particular about what I order when Im out at a restaurant. As their experience progresses, homebrewers search for new recipes from the Internet, fellow enthusiasts or devise their own. They also learn to improvise; many have replaced the kitchen stovetop with turkey fryers that speeds up the boiling process. It takes forever to get five gallons of water to boil on a kitchen st ove, says Mr. Loche, who has since traded his fryer for a propane heater and always keeps a light and dark beer on tap in his French-door kegerator. I keg most of my beer, he says. Ill throw in a few bottles to take on a trip. For Mr. DeShields, homebrewing provides a creative outlet. A baker for 25 years, first at Publix and now Costco, hes forced to stick to standard recipes. Not so with his beers. I make a beer with a souring agent and add mango to it. It sits in the bottle for almost two years, he says. Its like mango-ade. You get the sourness then the sweet. Hes now ventured into gourmet cooking. Mr. DeLisi taps into his college b rewing days each fall to make pumpkin beer, using fresh-ground cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. He recently bottled a batch of ginger root ale he made at the request of a friend. Thats the great thing about homebrewing its only limited by your creativity, says Mr. Winther. I know people whove done bacon, peanut butter and pineapple beers. The DuBoises are currently brewing a Dogfish Head 60 minute clone and soured the leftover grains for their first sour batch, one patterned after Californias Russian River Brewerys Consecration. It smelled like old dirty socks, so its right on, says Mrs. DuBois, a former state ecologist who now works for Collier County, performing hazardous waste inspections. Disasters and disappointmentsIts both fun and frustrating, says Mr. DeLisi, whos been homebrewing about 15 years, since college. Its rewarding when after six weeks you pop open a bottle, it tastes great and is exactly what you were going for. If its slightly off, its disappointing. Back in college if it was bad, we drank it. It was still better than Bud. But now its different for me. Maybe a tad bit of a perfectionist, Mr. DeLisi, a land use planner with DeLisi Fitzgerald, dedicated 2011 to perfecting a wheat beer. The first one was pretty good. I was inspired and thought it was going to get better, he says. I dont know if it was the temperature in my house, the yeast or something else, but it never came out the way I wanted. Some of Mr. Lynchs results have been less than stellar, but he has yet to toss a batch. I havent had exploding bottles but I have had three or four unexpected surprises, says Mr. Loche. I had a batch of barley wine and the fermentation was so active the foam got caught in the air trap. I topped it off with water and ended up with watered-down barley wine. My last disaster, I pulled a hose and beer went shooting out 12 feet away, on the sliding glass door and over the bar. The DuBoises first batch was technically not what they intended an Irish cream stout. They forgot to add the lactose. Our biggest problem is figuring out when peak drinkability is, says Mrs. DuBois. Weve waited too long and it wasnt optimal. We did end up pouring a lot. The last year or two weve gotten better.Sharing the tasteHomebrewers are eager for others to discover their world. Just last weekend, Mr. Loche invited several friends to watch him brew a batch while sampling his on-tap creations. Three years ago, Mr. DeShields conducted a demo at Time to Make Wine in recognition of Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day, always the first Saturday in November. That prompted Ms. Zahorchak to order beer kits and eventually form a homebrew club. Her club and Brewing Dailys new Gulf Coast Brewers Guild often inspire new concoctions. Theres only one rule of beer club: You have to be willing to share. Members bring samples. We met two of our really good friends through the club, says Mrs. DuBois. We take turns having beer dinners and take turns producing rare or hard to find beers. Josh and I have a huge collection of beer. Were beer hoarders. We plan our trips to breweries and take an extra suitcase just for beer. The Naples club provides the opportunity for homebrewers to talk technique and sample others creations. Mr. Winther hopes to eventually offer events and competitions all aimed at his goal of increasing the beer culture in the Southwest Florida area. It would be great to have some microbreweries here. The DuBoises are already considering the option. Thats exactly where we want to go with it becoming a microbrewer, says Mrs. DuBois. We both have serious full-time jobs. Josh has a business background and is working on a business plan and looking at the feasibility. We could be a whim away.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2012 A13 I discovered that I had breast cancer during a routine mammogram in July 2011. My surgeon recommended that I meet with Oncologist at Premiere Oncology. Dr. Kerwin helped me with my decision as to which treatment plan was best for me.

Airport authority honors three for bravery Three members of the Civil Air Patrol have been honored by the Naples Airport Authority for their bravery in responding to a January accident at Naples Municipal Airport. Eduardo Moreno, Domingos DaSilva and Dennis Leiva ran to assist the driver of a tow truck who experienced a medical emergency, drove through the airports perimeter fence and crashed into a T-hangar building near the Civil Air Patrol hangar. The three men broke a window of the truck, turned the engine off, removed the driver from the vehicle and had 911 called. These gentlemen did not hesitate to put themselves at risk in order to save another, Cormac Giblin, chairman of the NAA, said when honoring the men as part of the airport authority meeting in March. Because these individuals performed a selfless act of bravery, a very lucky man is alive and well today. The Civil Air Patrol is a nonprofit organization that provides emergency services, promotes aerospace education and trains youth in leadership, aerospace, fitness and character development. With a fleet of 550 single-engine piston aircraft nationwide, the organization conducts search-and-rescue flights and provides disaster support. Roughly 10 percent of students entering the Air Force Academy are from the Civil Air Patrol. Naples Municipal Airport, a certificated air carrier airport, is home to flight schools, air charter operators and corporate aviation and non-aviation businesses as well as fire/rescue services, mosquito control, car rental agencies and the Collier County Sheriffs Aviation Unit.

However, three Japanese students on holiday near Brisbane, Australia, in March created a new standard for ignoring common sense. Bound for North Stradbroke Island (about eight miles offshore), the driver (according to authorities cited by the local Bayside Bulletin) apparently put maps and eyesight aside, in favor of the all-powerful Navigator, which had instructed him to proceed. As news spread on the Internet, photographers rushed to capture the car, half-buried in sand. (In the students defense, the beach seemed to extend to the horizon at low tide although the word island might have deserved more respect.) [Bayside Bulletin (Cleveland, Australia), 3-15-2012] The continuing crisis The entire village (almost!) of Sodeto, Spain, shared the grand prize in the countrys huge Christmas lottery in December, earning each of the 70 households the equivalent of at least $130,000. The joint buy-in of tickets is a town ritual, but one resident missed the canvassing: filmmaker Costis Mitsotakis, who said he was happy that everyone else was happy. (The dark side of winning: Hucksters flooded the town from all over the country.) [New York Times, 1-31-2012] The town of Betws-y-Coed, Wales, holds the distinction of having its name likely butchered by more misspellings on Internet search inquiries than any other. Website managers told BBC News in February that they have compiled a list of 364 different spellings from people ostensibly looking for the town. The most common references were to Bwtsy Code and Betsy Cowed. [BBC News, 2-16-2012] Anthony McDaniel, 47, voluntarily returned to North Carolina from his new home in Texas in February after being charged with embezzlement by his old employer. The owner of Fayettevilles Skibo Skillet (now out of business) accused Mr. McDaniel of having pocketed meatballs, corn on the cob and anchovy dip while he worked there. [Greensboro News-Record, 2-23-2012] Keith Davis, 46, was caught redhanded in Ashley Murrays house in South Bend, Ind., in February and charged with burglary. Ms. Murray, though, said she had mixed feelings because, while there, Mr. Davis had folded her clothes and vacuumed the house. (Police said that some drug or other had made Mr. Davis believe he was in his own home.) Officials at the county courthouse in Charlotte, N.C., were startled to learn in January that Paul Frizzell, 30, had commandeered a vacant office in the building and for two months had been running his business out of it (with telephone, copy machine and bulletin board, among other trappings). [WNDU-TV (South Bend), 2-10-2012] [Gaston Gazette, 1-12-2012] Family values What Christmas gift would be appropriate for the 7-year-old daughter of Britains notorious specimen of plastic surgery known as the Human Barbie? For little Poppy Burge, it was a gift certificate worth the equivalent of about $11,000 for future liposuction (redeemable beginning at age 18). Mom Sarah had already given her a voucher for breast augmentation. (Poppy, developing her early-onset need for attention: I cant wait to be like Mummy with big boobs. Theyre pretty.) Mom, who recently turned 51, celebrated with about $80,000 worth of additional plastic surgery to run her lifetime total to the equivalent of (depending on source consulted) $800,000 to $1 million. [Daily Mail (London), 1-4-2012] Sheriffs detectives told the Everett, Wash., Daily Herald in January that they had recently tracked down a 21-year-old man who confessed to stealing checks from the Money Tree store in Lynnwood, Wash., and forging signatures. According to the detectives, the man was clear about his motive: I dont have an addiction. I dont need to use drugs. I (was) doing this to show my parents that I can make it on my own, without them. [Daily Herald, 1-25-2012] Wisconsinites, doing it the hard wayIn October, Robbie Suhr, 48, of Pleasant Prairie, Wis., sought the affections of the young exchange student living with Mr. Suhr and his wife and children, but she had so far declined. According to police, a disguised Mr. Suhr snatched the woman one night, intending to tie her up, leave, and then return undisguised to rescue her. However, she fought back, sending the masked man fleeing. (Mr. Suhr got off easier than Jordan Cardella, 20, of Milwaukee did several months earlier. To win back his girlfriend, Mr. Cardella convinced a buddy to shoot him, hoping for the girlfriends sympathy and a change of heart. Although he requested three shots in the back, he wisely settled for one in the arm. Alas, the girlfriend continued to ignore him.) [WTMJ-TV (Milwaukee), 10-30-2011] [Journal Sentinel (Milwaukee), 7-26-2011] Least-competent criminalsOne of the largest methamphetamine busts in U.S. history was made in March by police in Palo Alto, Calif., who used the popular Find-My-iPad app. Apparently, someone at the drug house had stolen the iPad, and police turned on the owners global-positioning app, pointing to an apartment complex in Santa Clara County. Almost 800 pounds of meth was confiscated, with a street value of about $35 million. Said the father of the iPad owner, They have $35 million, and they cant go out and buy an iPad?

Transporting your car? U.S.D.O.T. #385723 You should have called American! NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA20 WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2012 OUTDOORSCorkscrew offers discount for those with Lorax ticket stubsThe parable of Dr. Seuss The Lorax resonates powerfully at Audubon Floridas 13,000-acre Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. The fate of the truffula trees in the movie has a direct parallel to Corkscrews old growth cypress forest, rescued from extinction in 1954 in a history complete with Once-lers and Loraxes. To experience a real-life The Lorax drama and a living sanctuary for wild Florida, Corkscrew offers two-for-one admission when both parties present movie ticket stubs from The Lorax. Regular admission is $10 per adult and $4 for ages 6-18. The special offer is valid through April 22. The truffula trees in The Lorax have startling parallels to Corkscrews cypress trees in the length of time they take to grow and how quickly they can be destroyed. Corkscrews story of nearextinction, nick-of-time historic rescue and ongoing survival is an example of a forest that can be saved if its community of stakeholders, from scientists to visitors and donors, rally to preserve a healthy forest ecosystem for wildlife and humans. Corkscrew has the largest remaining stand of virgin bald cypress trees in eastern North America. In the early 1950s, loggers built networks of logging roads and began pulling out the massive 500-year-old trees. Before this last stand was demolished, the National Audubon Society and its many cooperators negotiated with loggers to give the society an option on key sections of the tract. By 1954, 5,680 acres were secured (640 acres were a gift from the logging company, just as a truffula seed was given by the Once-ler to the young hero in The Lorax), and the Corkscrew rookery became Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. Quick decisions to create an industry for thneeds things you think you need almost led to the demise of Corkscrew, and with it a loss of habitat for the real animals at Corkscrew that are represented in the story as brown bar-ba-loots, humming fish and swomee-swans, says Rebecca Beck, director of education at the sanctuary. Corkscrews 2.25-mile boardwalk, Blair Audubon Center and nature store are open from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. seven days a week through April 10, and from 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. beginning April 11.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2012 A21 OUTDOORSSnake in the Grass author to discuss Everglades pythonsAre there pythons in the Fakahatchee? Fortunately, the answer is not many. Unfortunately, that cannot be said for neighboring areas in Collier County and in the greater Everglades. Learn more about the python problem when Friends of the Fakahatchee presents Larry Perez and Everglades Pythons: A Decade of Change on Sunday, April 15, at Everglades Seafood Depot Restaurant in Everglades City. The evening begins at 5 p.m. with a roast beef buffet. Mr. Perez, whose newest book is Snake in the Grass, has been a ranger in several South Florida parks.

A33 u SEE MILLIONS, A6 u Florida has $17 million in cash to give back to Lee County residents and businesses all you have to do is ask the state for it. A list of unclaimed property obtained by Florida Weekly shows more than 60,000 names in Lee County alone. And nearly all of them dont know it. Some are for small amounts $30 or $40 from an old utility deposit or forgotten bank account. The biggest single unclaimed account in Lee County: $86,537. And there are more than 6,500 accounts for county residents valued at more than $500. Local plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Lang had more than $300,000 sitting in 29 unclaimed accounts. When contacted by Florida Weekly, Lang said he didnt realize it was so much. I dont know why these accounts were turned over to the state, he said. I dont know why they cant find me. I havent moved. Ive been in the same office for 10 years. Lang said the money was from stock holdings and bank accounts that had been merged into other banks. He contacted the state, received the forms via email and is well on his way to collecting. They were spectacularly helpful, Lang said of the people in the Bureau of Unclaimed Property. Florida is holding more than $1 billion mostly from unclaimed insurance benefits, utility deposits, dormant bank accounts or uncashed paychecks, said Rick Sweet, assistant bureau chief for unclaimed property, a division of the Florida Department of Financial Services. And the pots been building for a long time. Were still paying claims from the 1960s, Sweet said. But that money doesnt just sit in a vault. In fact, only about $15 million is ready cash, Sweet said. The rest goes to the Principal State School Trust Fund to benefit education. The education fund is expected to use $238 million from unclaimed property this year to pay for school operations, class size reduction, teacher recognition and reading programs. Last year the state took in $354 million in unclaimed cash and paid a record $101 million to 225,000 people. This year its on pace to return about $150 million, Sweet said.

Thats 27,142 new residents adding fuel to the economic engine that researchers call the fastest growing large county in Florida. Growth, measured by Census estimates slowed slightly from the previous year down to 5 percent from a record high of 5.8 percent in 2005. But University of Florida estimates show Lees growth at 6.6 percent in 2006, a record high. Its all very good news, said Michael Reitmann, executive director of Lee BIA, the building industry association. We still have a dynamic economy. The trend of people moving here will continue. Census estimates put Lee County as the eighth largest in the state, just behind Jacksonvilles Duval County. Since 2004, Lee has jumped from tenth place, bypassing Brevard County on Floridas east coast and Polk County in central Florida. Its really the fastest growing large county, said Scott Cody, a demographer with the University of Floridas Bureau of Economic and Business Research. Lees growing pretty fast for its size.

So when it came time to choose a name for her functional chic purses, its no surprise Nelson took a lesson from the French language. Chouette (pronounced shwet) means fantastic or wonderful, and thats exactly the reaction shes gotten from her line of utilitarian luxury handbags. Chouettes appeal? Each bag is reversible and convertible into 18 styles. One Chouette bag transforms from a tote to a hobo to a messenger bag, then becomes a clutch, an evening bag or a wristlet, among others. Nelson acknowledges that the mechanics of converting the bags can be intimidating, but she assures that the process is easier than people first imagine.

She went to the Punta Gorda Club five days a week and attended BodyStep and BodyPump classes. Away from the gym, she biked and walked. But she wanted more. I was looking for something new, challenging, and obviously rewarding, she says. More sculpting and toning. She has found those qualities in Pilates at The Pilates Loft of Punta Gorda. The downtown studio owned and operated by Darcie Allen has been open a year. A personal trainer of 18 years, Mrs. Allen is a certified Stott Pilates instructor who teaches private lessons and group classes. Her clients, some of whom are competitive athletes, range in age from 10 to 75 years. She has been teaching Pilates, a mind-body exercise system, for six years. Stott Pilates is a contemporary approach to the original method. Its exercises improve strength, flexibility, balance, endurance and posture. Pilates also relieves stress and is effective in injury prevention. Pilates uses resistance exercise machines rarely found in traditional workout facilities. The machines bear equally distinctive names: the reformer, trapeze table and spine corrector. Accessories such as resistance bands, balls and mats are used, too.

Local churches feel the Love INCLove In the Name of Christ (Love INC) of South Lee and North Collier Communities has been awarded a $5,000 grant by a private foundation to assist families in need in North Naples, Bonita Springs, Estero and San Carlos Park. Love INC is distributing the grant among its Covenant Partner Churches to establish a benevolence fund. Church members are encouraged to match the fund to help individuals and families who are referred by the Love INC phone-in clearinghouse. Love INCs mission is to mobilize the local churches to transform lives and communities in the Name of Christ. After discovering that 62 percent of its referrals came from local churches, but that only 40 percent of those referrals attended local churches, Love INC realized that most churches have very limited benevolence funds. Love INC partners with 19 area churches and works with 50 agencies in its service area. Assistance is provided for rent, utilities, food, clothing and more. For more information about Love INC, call 405-8595 from 9 a.m. to noon Monday-Wednesday. The organization holds a one-hour orientation for those who want to learn more about becoming a Love INC partner at 2 and 6 p.m. on the last Tuesday of every month. Call the number above to register for one of the April 24 sessions.

FUEL SALE $4.40 PER GALLON90 OCTANE NONETHANOAL FUELDrop in consumer confidence in keeping with last years trend SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe University of FloridaConsumer confidence among Floridians fell two points in March to 74, repeating a trend seen last year, according to a monthly University of Florida survey. The pattern of consumer confidence from December to February was exactly the same as last year, says Chris McCarty, director of UFs Survey Research Center in the Bureau of Economic and Business Research. Three of the five categories measured by the survey showed a drop of confidence among respondents. For instance, their overall assessment of the strength of the national economy over the next year declined one point to 73, while their trust in U.S. economic conditions over the next five years sank six points to 75. Perceptions over whether the present is a good time to buy big-ticket items such as automobiles or refrigerators also fell, dropping four points to 79. Survey takers, however, were not so gloomy in how they viewed their personal financial situations. Taken as a whole, their perception that they are personally better off financially today than they were a year ago increased three points to 62, a post-recession high. In addition, their expectations that personal finances will improve a year from now increased one point to 82. Unrest in the Middle East and the Japanese earthquake helped to tamp down consumer confidence in the first quarter of last year, but rising fuel costs are fueling the current anxiety. The big drag on consumers will increasingly be gas prices, which have increased more than 15 cents a gallon in the past month, Mr. McCarty said. There are, however, modest positive signs in the economy, Mr. McCarty said. Floridas unemployment rate for January was down .3 percent from December to 9.6 percent. Economists disagree, however, over how much of this improvement is due to new job creation or a reduction in the labor force due in part to senior workers retiring.Housing prices in the Sunshine State have stopped declining and even nudged up a little recently. In February, the median price of a single-family home was $134,000, about same level as in December 2011, which is higher than Januarys $129,000. Further price declines are less likely for the moment, because the state Legislature did not pass laws to speed up the handling of approximately 368,000 potential foreclosures in Florida. In addition, a new arrangement between the federal government and the nations largest banks might stall price declines, at least for the rest of the year, Mr. McCarty said. The index used by UF researchers is benchmarked to 1966, which means a value of 100 represents the same level of confidence for that year. The lowest index possible is a 2; the highest is 150. The UF survey was conducted March 12-22 and reflects the responses of 415 individuals statewide. six convenient childrens care locations central 3425 10th Street North, Naples, 239.262.3669east 1755 Heritage Trail #601, Naples, 239.775.2220golden gate 5262 Golden Gate Parkway, Naples, 239.455.5105immokalee/FSU 1441 Heritage Boulevard, Immokalee, 239.658.3011marco 40 Heathwood Drive, Marco Island, 239.394.0693north 1265 Creekside Parkway #208, Naples, 239.591.1755Did you know that the Healthcare Network provides primary healthcare to an annual average of 32,000 children in the community? providing quality healthcare for all since 1977www.healthcareswfl.org formerly chs healthcare let our family care for your family c Downtown Naples Go lde n Ga te Bo nit a S prings S an C arl os Mar co Is land Ea stN apleswww.SunshineAce.com FindusonATSU N SHI N EACEHARDWARE!SPRI N GI N TO GARDEN I N GWITHWhetheryoureanexperiencedgardenerwithbigplansthisspringorjust discoveringyourgreenthumb, SunshineAceHardware canhelpwitha varietyofproductstoensurethesuccessofyournextproject.

Jennifer Johnson brings a passion for fashion to her new business, True Fashionistas Designer Resale, and shoppers and consigners alike can benefit. Shoppers find labels such as Escada, Chanel, Dole & Gabbana and Lilly Pulitzer, along with more mainstream pieces from stores like White House Black Market, Ann Taylor and Talbots (but nothing from discounters such as Target, Walmart, JCPenney and Sears). Also nice for shoppers: Reasonable prices (a $4,000 Valentino suit with a $400 price tag, for instance) ensure quick sales. And equally nice for consigners: 43 percent of what was taken in during March sold the same month, according to Ms. Johnson. Consignors with True Fashionistas also have the option of choosing resale (cash paid on the spot for approximately 30 percent of value), consignment (for approximately 50 percent of the sales price) or trade (for items in the store). And they can log into the stores website and check the status of their items and account at anytime. Ms. Johnson, who was Miss Petite Minnesota 1998, owned the Heartstrings Bridal shop and a wedding and event planning business in Minnesota for many years and still works as a model and actress for clients including Target and Anheuser-Busch. Her longtime dream was to open an upscale consignment shop, and moving to Naples three years ago where there are plenty of buyers and sellers in this demographic motivated her to make it a reality. I love the thrill of the hunt and never pay full price, she says of her own shopping habits. She approached her neighbor, Nanci Iuculano (who confesses she doesnt share her Ms. Johnsons fashion sense but loves shopping at consignment stores), and the two opened the store last fall. Ms. Iuculano also brings business experience to the enterprise; she and her husband have operated a dental practice in Virginia for 10 years, and she also owns and operates First Choice Therapy Center in Naples. We blew the doors off what we were expecting, Ms. Johnson says about the first few months, with people from Port Royal to Pelican Bay and throughout Collier County becoming steady customers, some shopping daily to see whats new. The women are already thinking about expanding.More than whats on the racksThe two fashionistas with help from assistant manager Zoe LantelmeKern maintain a Customer Wish List and call people when an item they request comes in. The True Fashionistas website features some of the top designer items currently in the store, and a monthly newsletter is filled with recipes, style tips and tricks, a fashion quote and often a coupon. The women also provide closet organization, private parties and in-home buying and styling services to help people select a special-occasion outfit. And they pick a charity each month and donate a percentage of one days sales to that organization. Ms. Iuculano and her husband, Giovanni, have two autistic children, so one of True Fashionistas first charity days benefitted Able Academy. The April charity is Project Help, and the designated day for sales proceeds is Saturday, April 21. Project Help provides survivor-focused crisis intervention, counseling and advocacy services for victims of crime, survivors of sudden death and survivors of sexual assault. A portion of sales on May 19 will go to the March of Dimes, and the June 16 designated charity is the Tourettes Association of Florida. Charities for the remainder of the year have been selected. The women also plan to offer more special events such as the Career Day they recently held to help people find an interview outfit and have their resume reviewed by a certified resume writer and career coach. We want to give back to the community, because theyre giving to us every day, coming in and supporting us, says Ms. Johnson. True Fashionistas Designer Resale is at 2355 Vanderbilt Beach Road in the Galleria Shoppes at Vanderbilt. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. No appointment is necessary to bring in items to sell, consign or trade.

LADIES Night Mon, GENTS Night Sun: 1/2 Price Drinks & $5.99 Bam Bam Shrimp NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA34 WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2012 NONPROFIT NEWSImmokalee high students have a ball at spring training SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYIf the smiles on their faces were any indication, 31 high school students from The Immokalee Foundation had a grand time on a recent trip to JetBlue Park in Fort Myers to watch the Boston Red Sox take on the Tampa Bay Rays. The spring training day at the ballpark was made possible with proceeds from last Novembers Charity Classic Celebration Fund A Dream auction. Upon arriving, five of the students met up with Red Sox personnel to learn the business of baseball. The teens shadowed the staffers and learned about their different roles in making the baseball games happen. Prior to the start of the game, Elijah Basil was on the field, assisting in openinggame presentations and batboy and first pitch coordination. Natrone Means was in the control room the entire game, assisting with media as well as making sure the production of the game was running smoothly. Marcos Diaz helped with pre-game activities and passed out essential game day forms to all personnel. Juan Pablo Garza was responsible for administrative duties and assisting environmental volunteers. Attending his first major league baseball game, Rolando Guiterrez was responsible for the set-up and breakdown of the concourse. He also patrolled the stadium during the game to coordinate sponsors. This was an awesome day and a great way to see some of the jobs available, he said. Diana Sanon, a senior at Immokalee High School, which has been a part of TIFs Immokalee Readers program for the past three years, was selected to sing the national anthem in front of a crowd of thousands. Although she was nervous, Ms. Sanon was honored that she was given the chance. Not many kids have the opportunity to do this, she said. Marcos Gonzalez and two other boys, Jose Flores and Luis Parra, were chosen as honorary batboys for the Red Sox and as such were on the field for the entire game. Elijah Arreaga, a junior at Immokalee High School, threw the first pitch of the game. Although stepping onto the pitchers mound was nothing new for this second baseman and pitcher, Mr. Arreaga allowed it was much better than being on the mound at school. It was a great experience, he said. Alan Cruz, a senior at Immokalee High School, announced the two words every baseball enthusiast wants to hear: Play ball! As much as the teens enjoyed their time, the board members, donors and staff also made some incredible memories. Listening to Diana sing the national anthem brought tears to my eyes, said Mac McDonald, a TIF donor and former board member. His wife, Sonia McDonald, also a TIF supporter and former board member, echoed his sentiments. Seeing these kids have this opportunity is wonderful. These are memories that will last a lifetime. Mr. McDonald said he also enjoyed seeing TIF receive so much attention by taking part in the Red Sox Community Corner, a program that allows nonprofit groups to distribute literature and raise awareness. Now people understand what TIF is all about. During TIFs 2011 Charity Classic Celebration, guests were encouraged to bid on packages offering specific opportunities to change a childs life for the better. This was called the Fund A Dream opportunity. By the end of the evening, Fund A Dream had raised more than $580,000 with 100 percent going directly to Immokalee children. This day at the ballpark was one of the many life, educational and career experiences made possible by the generosity of those donors. The 2012 Charity Classic Celebration is slated for Nov. 16 at The Ritz Carlton Beach Resort, Naples. The Immokalee Foundation provides educational opportunities for Immokalees children that focus on building pathways to success through college and vocational school, mentoring and tutoring, and opportunities for broadening experiences and life skills development. To learn more about volunteering as a mentor or for additional information, call 430-9122 or visit www.immokaleefoundation.org.

Kim and Phil Collins were presenting sponsors for the luncheon. See more photos on page C39. Avow Hospice benefits from generosity Avow Hospice has received $20,000 to help further its programs as a result of two recent events organized by groups in the community. In February, the residents of Verona Walk produced and performed a Broadway revue that raised $15,000 to benefit Avow. They enthusiastic troupe performed a variety of Broadway song and dance numbers and added bits of comedy all along the way. The performance was directed by Verona Walk resident Diane Brueggeman and choreographed by Michele Azzolina; costume design was by Cathy Freed. And in March, as part of its 10th anniversary celebration, the Naples Bach Ensemble conducted a fundraising concert to benefit music therapy programs at Avow Hospice. The concert resulted in a $5,000 gift to the programs in which board-certified music therapists develop individualized prescriptions that include singing and playing live music for and with a hospice patient; songwriting; music with imagery for relaxation; song lyric interpretation; and reminiscence and life review with music. Music therapy interventions are designed to reduce depression, anxiety and pain; improve emotional well being; and provide comfort and enhanced quality of life.

Foster parents needed for kittens, puppiesHumane Society Naples needs volunteer foster parents for its rapidly growing population of puppies and kittens. Foster parents can help prevent overcrowding at the HSN shelter by providing temporary care for animals that are too young, too underweight or in too poor of health to be spayed or neutered, or by offering a safe place for an older dog or cat to birth and take care of her newborns. Having the animals in a foster home also allows them to develop their socialization skills and become more adoptable. Barb Thompson at HSN will hold an hour-long foster parent information session and orientation at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 10, at HSN headquarters, 370 AirportPulling Road. Reservations are not required, and all are welcome. If you cannot attend the above meeting but would like to learn more about becoming an HSN foster patent, call Ms. Thompson at 6431555, ext. 26, or e-mail at Foster@hsnaples. org.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA44 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2012 Medical tourism can help build a healthy yearround economyWe have spoken often about our region becoming a medical destination. Lately, this initiative has become more important and more focused. Indeed, the economic future of Southwest Florida, our communitys health care and the ongoing development of NCH are inextricably intertwined. The medical tourist attraction theme has been explored by the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, in an effort led by Katie Sproul, chair of the chamber; along with Mike Reagan, chamber president and CEO; and the NCH board of trustees strategic planning committee, directed by Mike Riley and Michael Feuer. The Collier County Tourist Development Council is also taking a leadership role by making a significant contribution to marketing in areas where we have a foothold with people already coming to Southwest Florida for medical care. We are not being unrealistic when setting goals such as geographic expansion beyond our five-county area up the west coast of Florida, over the lower east coast of Florida and ascending to the northeast and to the northern reaches of I-75 particularly, Michigan and Minnesota. Today, one of every eight inpatients at NCH comes from one of these areas. Attracting more out-of-market patients makes great sense for NCH and other local health-care providers. Most local businesses have excess unused capacity two-thirds of the year, during the off season. Think of empty hotel rooms and restaurant seats, and all the unused support services that have year-round costs (fixed overhead in accounting terms). Imagine how positive it would be for our entire local economic ecosystem if more visitors came here for medical care during the off season and discovered how pleasant in terms of climate and tax structure, for example Southwest Florida really is. Collier County has already been recognized twice as the healthiest of 67 counties in Florida by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, with the longest life expectancy for a woman (86 years) and second longest for a man (80.2 years). For more about those statistics, visit www. countyhealthrankings.org/florida and www.pophealthmetrics.com/conte. So the question remains: How do we best share this great news beyond our region? Our goal at NCH is to increase not just our share of the local market, but also the overall size of the market. Certainly, being named as one of U.S. News and World Reports best regional health-care systems, and being in the top 10 percent of the Society for Thoracic Surgerys rankings for cardiac surgery, help tremendously to build the NCH brand. We have strong unaided market awareness locally, but our brand still needs to be recognized outside our immediate area. Our goal is to spread this recognition nationally and, eventually, globally, to help our region build a stable, healthy, yearround economy. Edison professor will share secrets to a Great LifeJim Langlas, author of Heart of a Warrior: 7 Ancient Secrets to a Great Life, will share those secrets, take questions from the audience and sign copies of the book at 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 17, at the Allen & Marla Weiss Health Sciences Hall at Edison State College-Collier. Mr. Langlas is a professor of English at ESC. His book was inspired by the ancient Korean history of Hwarang young student-warriors who worked to strengthen their spirits as well as their fighting skills. These principles are rooted in the longstanding tradition of Taekwondo and are easily transferred to modern-day character education, says Mr. Langlas, who has practiced Taekwondo for more than 40 years. The book is a mix of storytelling and writing from my former students, he adds. I wanted readers to see for themselves how these principles and fundamentals can be applied to everyday life. Included in the back of the book is a section of tips for using the book with teenagers. The book is also available for purchase online at www.freespirit.com. Researchers use game to change how scientists study disease outbreaks BY DONNA HESTERMAN, UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA Special to Florida WeeklyIt might seem like a macabre game of tag, but its actually an innovative tool for teaching the fundamentals of epidemiology the science of how infectious diseases move through a population. University of Florida biologist Juliet Pulliam is among an international team of scientists who teach a workshop annually in South Africa that helps epidemiologists improve mathematical models they use to study outbreaks of diseases like cholera, AIDS and malaria. Pulliam and colleague Steve Bellan from the University of California Berkeley created the game in 2010 as a teaching aid for the workshop. The exercise has proven so effective in demonstrating concepts in epidemiology that a discussion of the game is presented in the April 3 edition of the journal PLoS Biology. In the game they call Muizenberg Mathematical Fever, players simulate a real-life epidemic by passing around pieces of paper that say, You have been infected, followed by instructions for propagating the disease. The drill has become a cornerstone of the annual training they offer at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Muizenberg, South Africa. Infectious disease modeling is an established field of study in bio-mathematics, says Ms. Pulliam, a biologist at UFs Emerging Pathogens Institute and co-author on the paper. But there has been a tendency in the past for mathematicians doing that sort of work to operate separately from practitioners on the ground who track diseases as they are spreading, she says. The game was meant to convince all players on the epidemiology field that teamwork is the better approach. Not knowing how data about an outbreak was collected can lead to misinterpretations, Ms. Pulliam says. For example, she adds, if procedures change for how infected individuals are counted, it could create a spike in the data that falsely portrays how the disease is actually being spread. The misinformation, once introduced into a model, could throw off projections and interfere with efforts on the ground to prevent further outbreaks. Mr. Bellan, lead author on the paper, cites cases where collaborations between bio-mathematicians and classical epidemiologists have resulted in valuable lessons for tracking the spread of diseases. HIV interventions and efforts to eliminate trachoma, a bacterial infection that causes blindness, have successfully used the tag-team approach, he says. In both cases, studies have shown that when practitioners employ the power of mathematical modeling to improve their intervention strategies, they are more likely to interrupt the progress of an epidemic. This is about the importance of collaboration, says Mr. Bellan, an ecologist who specializes in epidemiology of wildlife diseases. No one can be an expert in everything. In fact, he adds, the two sides typically meet up somewhere along the line during the process of an epidemiological study. We just want to see more scientists working together from the start. To that end, Mr. Bellan, Ms. Pulliam and six scientists from South Africa, Canada and the United States offer two-week clinics every year at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences. The clinics are meant to immerse epidemiological number crunchers more fully into the human aspects of how disease spreads. John Hargr ove, f ormer director of the South African Center of Epidemiological Modeling and Analysis, started the clinics in 2006. But since 2010 classes have had a very different experience than previous groups, because the game changed everything. We were sitting in the office the night before the clinic began, talking about how someone had shown up sick one year and gotten everyone else sick, Ms. Pulliam says. And then Steve said something about how cool it would be if we had captured data from that outbreak for use in the workshop. The discussion sparked the idea to create a similar scenario in real time by creating a fictitious disease. We pieced it together in about an hour, Mr. Bellan says. An infectious piece of paper serves as the agent for spreading Muizenberg Mathematical Fever. The paper notifies the receiver that they have been exposed and then instructs the infectee to e-mail Mr. Bellan of their fate, use a random number generator to determine how many others should be infected, and then pass the appropriate number of papers to other participants at the clinic. The rules serve to propagate the disease but also to build a data set of who infected whom and when. There were a lot of sneaky smiles going around that day, Mr. Bellan says. The drill produced an outbreak with data that looks like a real epidemic, Ms. Pulliam says. Clinic attendees are usually more mathematician than epidemiologist, she says. They typically spend the first week just talking about where data sets come from, who collects them, and what the numbers refer to. Just using the game as a way to demonstrate those issues instead of talking about them is instructive on its own, she says. But the real benefit comes during the second week, when people working in groups experiment with various epidemiological models using actual data sets typically from HIV studies or other ongoing projects. Many opted to work with data sets from the game, because they were really tangible, Ms. Pulliam says. They found that familiarity with the process for collecting data greatly improved their ability to customize mathematical models so that they accurately represented how a disease was moving through a population. And thats exactly what we wanted them to get out of the workshop, she concludes. HEALTHY LIVING allenWEISSallen.email@example.com Langlas s t u w e w sk ar e st a T a e ea s

TO YOUR HEALTHHave 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. 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.

SCAN FOR A VIDEO TOUR BY GINA SPADAFORI Universal UclickWhen Easter draws near, you can be sure of an increase in sales of chocolate and rabbits. And while it wont hurt you much to buy chocolate on a whim, Id rather you pass on buying a bunny on impulse. But if youre ready for a surprisingly special pet, wait a few weeks, check the shelters and pick a pair. They do well in multiples after theyre altered, of course and youll find wonderful rabbits ready for re-homing in the weeks after Easter. Never thought of a rabbit as an indoor pet for adults? Youre missing out! Once liberated from the confinement of a backyard hutch and provided with a safe and secure indoor environment, bunnies really shine as pets. Theyre playful and adorably willful, trainable and even amenable to using a litter box. Care is surprisingly easy, and very affordable. Heres how to keep your rabbit healthy: Housing. Your rabbit will need a home base of a small pen or large cage with food, water and a litter box. Rabbits do well with a plain cat box filled with a shallow layer of recycled paper pellets, covered with a layer of fresh grass hay. You dont scoop a rabbit box you change it completely, every day. (The ingredients you toss are great for your compost pile.) Nutrition. Fresh water needs to be available at all times. For food, skip the storebought pellet route and feed your rabbit a variety of fresh leafy veggies and an unlimited supply of fresh grass hay. If you do go with pellets, your rabbit should still get as much fresh grass hay as he wants. Treat your rabbit, too: Bunnies love little bits of fruits, roots and leafy greens. (If you have storage space, hay is cheaper by the bale and lasts for many weeks in a cool, dry location.) Health care. Check with your local rabbit rescue group for the names of veterinarians who are known to be good with rabbits. Get your rabbit spayed or neutered. In addition to keeping your rabbit from reproducing, youll have a better pet. Unaltered rabbits can have behavior problems such as aggression and urine-spraying. Your rabbit will need a wellness check, just as a cat or dog would, and a good rabbit vet will help you catch little health problems before they become big ones. Exercise and play. Make sure your rabbit is allowed time outside the cage or pen every day. If you cant manage letting your rabbit roam at will indoors, block off a single rabbit-proofed room. A secure, supervised area outside is fine as well, but dont leave your rabbit unattended. Rabbits can be scared literally to death by cats, dogs and even jays and crows. Because some rabbits can be chewers, youll want to make sure that any rabbit-friendly area has electrical cords tucked away, and deny access to the legs of nice furniture and the corners of good carpets. Rabbits love toys. Cat toys, dog toys, hard-plastic baby toys and even the cardboard tubes from inside toilet paper and paper towel rolls are fun for rabbits. Cardboard boxes stuffed with hay and treats are also fun for bunnies. I had a trio of pet rabbits for a few years Turbo, Annie and Velocity. I still miss them, and will be looking to adopt a pair later this spring. I encourage you to join me, and make this spring a good one for former Easter bunnies.

B6 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE LOCAL BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE INDUSTRIES BSECTIONWEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2012 STEVE JOBS WAS NOT A NICE GUY NOT TO HIS employees at Apple. It was no secret that Mr. Jobs had an outwardly aggressive penchant for control, and he would often put down anyone he didnt like. Sometimes his rudeness was personal, other times business, often it was both, explains Nick Bolton, a New York Times writer. But Mr. Jobs inspired loyalty among his A level staff (everybody else quit or was fired), and his company is now the largest publicly traded company in the world. Although its hard to argue with success, if thats the only way to achieve it inspire them or fire them its news to some business leaders in Southwest Florida. A conversational survey of management styles either practiced or admired by people in business here suggests theres more than one way to inspire employees. So which is the better quality in successful leadership: honey or vinegar?Respect is key Im from the sugar school, admits an unequivocal Bill Valenti, whose success as the founder, president and CEO of Florida Gulf Bank shines out from his regional results. He marched his bank right through the recession without laying off employees, and presented it as an appealing opportunity for merger and growth to a much larger bank, Iberia, while protecting the jobs and careers of his employees in the final deal (the merger could be complete by July, he says). Many of those employees have worked for Mr. Valenti for years. I think Steve Jobs followed the Machiavellian school (make employees fear you and tell them what they need to hear), Mr.Valenti says. But Im from the Skinner school (treat them with respect and theyll return the favor). I think people want to follow a leader, and obviously you dont need to be loved to be a great leader.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2012 The 401(K) became an old dog sporting the same ol retirement savings tricks: the employer (optionally) puts a small amount of money into the corporate 401(K) plan for the employees benefit, a percentage match to the employees own pretax contributions. Simply stated, the employee does something for him/herself and then the employer puts money into the pot, rewarding the employee for self-contributions. For the longest time, any mention of a 401(K) automatically denoted that a large corporate employer was behind the plan. Plans required administration, and smaller companies could simply not afford a matching contribution, nor did they want to be committed to one more thing that hinted of more filings, more regulations, more obligations to employees, more compliances, etc. But along came a rejuvenating elixir for the ol dog. And at least for me, it seems as if one of retirements best friends is now doing cartwheels for the self-employed (the sole proprietor or single-member LLC or spouse and owner business broadly termed self-employed for the purposes of this column). The 401(K) has taken on another life form: the individual or solo 401(K) and it allows large annual contributions and great flexibility in annual contributions. From my perspective, it is immensely attractive. Its not a panacea for everyone, but possibly a chance for many of Floridas small and start-up business owners to put a hunk of money away for their retirements. It is also a great plan for the very wealthy who are retired and have reinvented themselves as consultants, etc.; they too can use this plan to augment retirement dollars. Beyond the attractive nature of the size of dollars that can be allocated, the plan (depending upon custodian and administrator) can invest in a broad array of assets including alternative investment assets, private businesses, real estate (such as rentals, tax liens, foreclosures, undeveloped land, etc.) and more. The individual 401(K) consists of employee salary deferral contribution and employer profit sharing contribution. The maximum that can be contributed depends upon a participants age, with older (50 and over) being allowed to contribute more to the plan. Under the 2012 contribution rules, a plan participant under the age of 50 can make a maximum employee deferral contribution in the amount of $17,000, with either pre-tax or after-tax/Roth money. On the employer side (and you are your own employer), the business can contribute 25 percent of net self-employment income up to a combined maximum of $50,000. Sole proprietorships or singlemember LLCs are limited to 20 percent of net profit. For participants over 50 years, the maximum employee deferral contribution is $22,500 again, either pre-tax or Roth. On the employer side (and again, you are the employer) the business can contribute 25 percent (and, again, 20 percent of net self-employment income for a sole proprietorship or single-member LLC.) The combined maximum is $55,500. Now all of this is for 2012. If the plan was not established by year-end 2011, there is no creating a plan now for 2011. The case is closed for individual 401(K) s for 2011. But not for SEP IRAs. So if you are scrambling in the next few days to allocate a retirement contribution for 2011 and you are a small business and you cant use an individual 401(K), consider using a SEP, which needs dollars contributed by April 15. Prior to the individual 401(K), the SEP IRA was pretty much the best retirement solution for the sole business owner. SEP has less administration but SEPs do not allow as large a contribution. For 2011, the SEP will allow up to 25 percent of net selfemployment income If you really want to just stick with one plan, you can open a SEP IRA for 2011 before April 15 and then roll it into an Individual 401(K) for 2012. And this is where retirement experts are needed. This is their world of regulations and rules and they can tell you what is best for your unique situation.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2012 BUSINESS B5 need to be respected, and to respect people. The kind of business a leader manages can dictate style to some extent in a customer service business such as banking, rudeness to employees could result in a debilitating rudeness to customers. But I couldnt or wouldnt be a Steve Jobs or a Paul Allen (co-founder of Microsoft, with Bill Gates) in any business, Mr. Valenti concludes. One of his policies includes knowing and caring about the families of his employees, not just the employees themselves. Family is first, he says. Thus, when children are ill, he encourages employees to take the time off and care for them. When I was a little boy and I was sick (he grew up in New York City), I wanted my mom home, he recalls. And he builds that experiential sense of need the need of the employee and his or her child into his leadership paradigm.Clear expectationsVincent Wolanin didnt have that kind of childhood. The founder and president of Private Sky, an aviation services business based in Southwest Florida, and owner of construction, entertainment, real estate and other businesses in and out of Florida, Mr. Wolanin began his working life in Philadelphia, the hard way. His father died when he was14, and he had to go to work picking up cigarette butts. Then, while still a young man, I was managing people two or three times my age, he says. His approach to leadership was the same at 20 as it is now at almost 65, he says. Leadership is about surrounding yourself with the best people and letting them do their job, he says. Thats it. Thats all it is. For him, there hasnt been must trial and error in picking the right people. Ive had fortunate circumstances in that regard over the years, Mr. Wolanin says. And once those people become part of his team, he follows up with a clear definition of his expectations. You establish guidelines, and then you reward them if they do the job better than what the guidelines require. More than 50 percent of my people perform above the guidelines, so theyre rewarded with bonuses. Thats true in all of my companies.Achieving followershipMike Reagen, president and CEO of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, has worked in big business and in government, watching many leaders over the years. When he thinks of leadership, he has to create a new word: followership. Genuine leadership consistently evokes and sustains followership to make things better, he says. It sparks people to achieve together that which they cannot do alone, adds. Understanding, orchestrating and balancing circumstances, chemistry, fit and passion are critical to leadership success. Orchestrating the variety of attributes possessed by your team, enhancing the chemistry among them, balancing their passions to fit with the mission all that generally sustains followership and mission accomplishment. At special moments, the key is to know when and how to use a just pinch of sugar and a drop of vinegar.

Yet CEO pay doesnt appear to be subject to the same laws of physics that govern the rest of the rational world. In fiscal 2010, total realized compensation of CEOs in the S&P 500 rose by a median 36.5 percent. GMI, the leading independent provider of corporate governance ratings and research, has released its ninth annual CEO Pay Survey for 2011, noting also that extra perks awarded to S&P 500 leaders rose 11 percent in 2010. Interestingly, of the 10 highest-paid CEOs of 2010 (who received tens or hundreds of millions of dollars apiece), four were actually retired or terminated CEOs who received golden exit packages. So much for pay thats commensurate with performance. These executives enjoyed a huge payout even though they wont offer these companies or their shareholders much in the way of future performance. As an example, General Growth Properties CEO Adam Metzs $66.7 million compensation put him at 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. Book EmQWhats a companys book value? K.G., Ocala, Fla.ABook value is an accounting concept, reflecting a companys value according to its balance sheet. To get it, you start with the total assets and then subtract intangible assets (such as goodwill, patents and trademarks) and total liabilities. Book value is used to approximate a companys intrinsic value, as most assets, such as factories and land, were capitalintensive and appeared on the balance sheet. But as Americas economy is becoming more service-oriented, book value has become less relevant for investors. Consider Amazon.com (a Fool newsletter recommendation). Its book value was recently about $7.8 billion, far from its $84 billion market value. Much of Amazons value stems from assets and competitive advantages that dont register significantly on the balance sheet: intellectual property, employees, a strong brand and market share. As another example, imagine a firm that owns a lot of land and many buildings. Over the years, the value of buildings on the balance sheet is depreciated, eventually to zero. But these assets are rarely worthless and can even appreciate in value over time. Such a company might actually be worth much more than its book value. With many companies, youd do well to largely ignore book value. ***QHow are stockbrokers paid? J.P., Worcester, Mass.ATheyre generally paid by salary, commissions on sales or a mix of both, depending on the company they work for. Those who depend heavily on commissions can end up actively (and needlessly) generating trades in your account. Thats called churning, and it can cost you. Wed rather see brokers paid flat salaries, with bonuses for results that outperform the market averages. Learn more at sec.gov/investor/brokers.htm and broker.fool.com.Got a question for the Fool?

The company spent most of 2010 in bankruptcy, but at least somebody did well, right? This increase in CEO pay at least partially relates to the stock markets 15 percent gain in 2010, but investors bidding up stocks over a short period doesnt reflect true long-term corporate performance at specific companies. GMI pointed out that CEO pay among companies in the Russell 3000 index (that reflects the overall stock market) rose 27 percent in 2010. Clearly, CEOs tend to come out way ahead of everybody else. Fortunately, we shareholders have ways to try to get the message across that CEO pay disconnects are no longer OK. We can use our proxy ballots to vote against companies CEO pay policies, and also to withhold votes from the compensation committees directors who craft outrageous pay packages (and pen employment agreements that ensure ample pay for failure through golden parachutes). When you get proxy ballots in the mail for the companies youre invested in, let management know that CEO pay disconnected from performance (or reason) is no longer business as usual. Healthy LessonsOne of my dumbest investments was a health-care company that ended up trading for close to a dollar per share. I learned several lessons: (1) Beware of companies with only one hit product; (2) Beware especially of bullish CEOs projecting future profits and hoping for new acquisitions because the one-hit product just isnt happening; (3) Be careful with the health care industry. F.E., SingaporeThe Fool Responds: Those are good lessons. The health care industry actually has a lot going for it, because the worlds population is growing and getting older and will need more medical attention. But its also true that companies with only one product can be particularly risky, as that product can be eclipsed by a competitors offering. Biotechnology companies can be especially risky, since they spend a lot of time and money developing treatments that might or might not make it to market and even then they may not sell well. When it comes to CEOs, they often want to make their company look good. Finding a CEO discussing risks and mistakes is a relatively rare and wonderful thing. The Motley Fool TakeLas Vegas Sands Shines OnThe Chinese region of Macau has been helping Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE: LVS) and other casino companies multiply their profits. Sands Macau casino revenue growth dropped some, to 42 percent, in 2011, but its overall prospects seem bright. The company was near bankruptcy three years ago, but now has just initiated a dividend of $1 per share.

Increasing disposable income of urban Chinese people and better tourism facilities are expected to continue nourishing the gambling market in Macau. Sands has almost captured a fifth of Macaus gaming market already, and in April it opens its largest resort development there, Sands Cotai Central. It also plans to build a 4,000-room theme casino in Macau with separate towers for the masses and high rollers. Sands has a distinct edge over its competitors there, as it already owns the land and is merely awaiting the Chinese governments permission to start construction. Sands also aims to expand further in Singapore and to markets such as Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam and India. The stock may be a gamble, but its a promising one over the long term.

Myers and after interviewing several real estate agents and considering their qualifications, I chose Rast Bryant. He was chosen Because of his thorough presentation and expertise in all the latest technology of the internet. Rast was a pleasure to work with. He made selling my home a quick and easy experience. I live in the state of Nevada and Rast was an excellent communicator. He kept me abreast of every situation immediately and he was quick to respond to any message left for him, even though we have a 3 hour time difference. I will highly recommend Rast to anyone I know. I wish I had him here in Nevada to help me with my new home purchase. Sincerely, C. Shaw, Nevada To Whom It May Concern: We are writing this letter in reference to the professional service performed by one of your agents, Mr. Chris Dziewulski during the sale of our home located in Cape Coral. He was very responsive to our needs to sell in a timely manner and he worked to insure that our financial goal was not compromised. He was attentive, respectful and very professional. Chris was diligent and proactive plus he worked hard to make sure we were well represented towards everything pertaining to the sale of our home. We just can't say enough about him. In our opinion, Chris exceeded our expectations to the services we were entitle to from a professional real estate agent. Sincerely, L & R Thompson, Cape Coral Gentlemen: I have nothing but praise for Nellie Huffman and the job she did in finding a home for us in Cape Coral. She gave freely of her time. I could not have asked for more perseverance. You are fortunate to have such a dedicated person on your staff. The home she found is perfect for us. Please give her a "GOLD STAR"! Truly yours, Ed McL, Cape Coral, FI Dear Century 21 Birchwood Realty: I wanted to tell you of my wonderful experience with Carolyn Chesser. I have been in the real estate business for the past 14 years with a company in Minnesota. So, you can imagine home many realtors, brokers, title companies, etc. I have worked with. I wish to tell you that, in all oftly years, and all of my experiences, I have never, ever, worked with someone as wonderful, professional, knowledgeable, hardworking, dedicated, kind and caring person before in all of these years! Carolyn is not only a superb Realtor, she is beyond superb and beyond terrific, dynamic and so personable of a person in every way, regard and aspect. I truly wish Carolyn could be rewarded for this type of service! Sincerely, W. Berndt, Minnesota Dear Broker: I am an investor and sometime ago I started interesting in buying properties in Lee County. When I called your office, I spoke to Donna Moyer. Every since she is my Agent and she try to find properties for me. Last week I was interested in one property that she send it to me. She found out completely whole history about this house. I was very impressed of her honesty. I know from facts, that not so many agents are like her. That's why I ask her to give my your e-mail address to let you know that you have (I am sure you have other good agents) one of the nicest as a person, honest and reliable as Donna Moyer.

Celebrating it 65th anniversary this year, the American classic follows the story of Blanche DuBois, a weak and disturbed woman on a desperate prowl for some place in the world to call her own. After losing her ancestral home, Blanche shows up at the doorstep of her sister and brother-in-law, Stella and Stanley Kowalski, in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Seeking to escape from reality, and an emblem of a lost traditional South, she becomes a victim of the harsh present. Streetcar is such a pleasure to work on for the stage, Kristen Coury, Gulfshore Playhouse founder and producing artistic director, says about the landmark play that won the 1947 Pulitzer for drama.

I recently bought an $8 carton of eggs. Read that again. Eight dollars. I asked the man at the farmers market for a dozen and handed him a twenty without asking the price. He handed me back $12. It wasnt until I walked away and counted my change that I realized hot damn I just bought a carton of eggs for the price of a movie ticket. And the worst part? I wasnt even upset. They were free-range and organic, after all. Heres the thing: Ive cleaned up my eating in the last few years. I eat more fruits and vegetables, I cook at home when I can, and I buy organic when the prices dont give me cardiac arrest (eggs excluded). I stopped drinking coffee and stocked my cupboards with green tea. I cut out a lot of sugar and flour, and I eat fewer processed foods. Ive learned to make good decisions when it comes to the way I eat. If only my choices in men could be so healthy. Like a lot of us, when Im confronted with a bad-for-me partner I feel powerless to resist. Its like facing down a double cheeseburger: delicious for a little while, but destined to corrode my arteries. I wish I could walk away from these men the way I can now walk away from a box of Twinkies. It turns out I can, says author Katherine Woodward Thomas in her her book Calling in The One: 7 weeks to Attract the Love of Your Life (a feng shui-meditation-psychotherapydecluttering-karmic guide to relationships). On the most fundamental level, she writes, keeping your life free of the messes and entanglements that unwise choices create is actually one of the best things you can do to prepare yourself for love. Yes, but how? I always seem to reel in the same self-centered types. Ms. Woodward Thomas says that we all have a fantasy that once we see our unhealthy patterns double cheeseburgers, Twinkies, men who dont listen and commit to doing things differently, we believe that only good things will come into our path. Our lives will be filled with microgreens and supportive partners. This is rarely the case, she says in her book. What is more likely to happen is that, instead of immediately attracting a whole new kind of person into our lives, we find ourselves attracting exactly the same kind of person. The difference? Were wiser now, she says. This time we know exactly where a particular path will lead. We must make the more difficult choice by saying no to the enticement of doing the exact same thing while hoping for different results. Lets learn to value the making of the right choice not because its the right choice for others, not because its the expected choice, the easiest one, or the path of least resistance. No, lets instead learn to value the making of the right choice because it is the right choice for us. If I can choose to buy outrageously priced eggs because I know theyre better for me, then perhaps I can learn to choose a man who is equally healthy. Maybe hell even have his own organic farm.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2012 was a No. 1 hit for Faith Hill, and Elton John performed her song Sand and Water during his 1997 world tour. Her music has also been featured on TV shows (ER, Providence, Felicity, Dawsons Creek) and in movies (Message in a Bottle, Practical Magic, The Prince of Egypt). Mr. Crowell, an inductee in the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, has written hit songs for Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, the Oak Ridge Boys, Crystal Gayle and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, among others. Early in his career, he was Emmylou Harris chief songwriter. His own album, Diamonds & Dirt, spawned five No. 1 songs in 1998. He also produced many of Rosanne Cashs albums when they were married, including her breakthrough album Seven Year Ache and Kings Record Shop. Ms. Chapman has performed at Alive in the World Concerts for Eden Autism Services Florida twice before. This time, she asked fellow Nashville musician Mr. Crowell to join her. The two have known each other since the mid-90s, and Mr. Crowell co-produced her landmark 1997 album, Sand and Water. Though they have different styles and approaches to music Mr. Crowell has been called a new traditionalist and sometimes sports a rockier, grittier sound, while Ms. Chapman has more of a pop sensibility theyre musically compatible. I think that Beth definitely has a poetic sensibility, as do I, he says. That may be the strongest bond between us. Our chemistry and our friendship is really great, Ms. Chapman says, adding that the show will be marked by spontaneity. Presented in the smaller Daniels Pavilion at the Philharmonic Center, it promises to be very intimate (with) the feeling of just sitting there in a musical conversation, Ms. Chapman says. Plus, Youre not going to get a bad song when youre working with Rodney.

Right now, shes juggling several different projects. She just spent a day in a Nashville recording studio, making a demo of a new song with Annie Roboff, with whom shes written songs including the No. 1 hit This Kiss. We were putting down the song we hope (a certain multi-platinum-selling artist) will record, she says. I am so excited about this song; I know it will be a hit song for someone. She shares the last line of the chorus The heart inside your heart is mine, and forever in time youll find me there and says the sentiment reminds her of one of her favorite poems, i carry your heart by e.e. cummings. Shes also putting together a retrospective of her music career in a box set. I want to take a look back and pull together old demos, original versions of songs that are big hits, and create a threeor four-CD retrospective, she says. And I have all these new songs coming at me too. She hopes to release Box of Songs by next spring. Shes also working on something she initially thought would be a little side project: The Mighty Sky, a childrens album of songs about astronomy. She partnered with astronomer Rocky Alvey, writing songs with him and some of her songwriter friends. She describes them as two-minute, little Beatle-like songs, fun and poppy. The Way That We Lean is a kickass bluegrass song about the axis of the earth, and thats why (we have seasons), she says. And The Rockin Little Neutron Star sounds like Wipe Out played in heaven. The song includes a first recording made of a star imploding. A mix of the voice of the woman who made that recording, Jocelyn Bell Burnell, is part of the song. Ms. Chapman was invited to debut the songs from The Mighty Sky at the International Day of Human Space Flight at the United Nations headquarters on April 12. The day celebrates the 50th anniversary of human space flight. To debut this at the U.N. with the head of NASA there! she marvels. This is what happens when you say yes to a little side project. Shes also working on a book about reclaiming your creative spirit, for the housewife who stays home all day with kids and feels stuck, to the person who goes to a 9-to-5 job and then anesthetizes himself with a TV show at the end of the day. I think everyones creative life can be resurrected, she says. Being in the world in a creative way is intoxicating and fun and euphoric. Its amazing the effect one persons story can have. Grammy Award-winning Rodney Crowell read Mary Karrs bestselling memoir The Liars Club when it came out in the mid-90s. It affected me profoundly, he says. (I recognized) were from the same culture and the same swamp, basically. Both were raised in small-town Texas in highly dysfunctional families riddled with violence and alcoholism. So Mr. Crowell name-checked her in his song, Earthbound. I mention Mary as one of the many reasons to go on living, he says. He e-mailed her, she responded, and the two became fast friends, he says. Instantly our conversation was about where wed come from. We had the same sense of humor, and a very similar childhood. He says Ms. Karr, who has taught at Harvard and is the Peck Professor of Literature at Syracuse University, told him that by putting her name in a song, he helped her street cred. Mr. Crowell was inspired to write Chinaberry Sidewalks, a memoir of his tumultuous childhood. The book was released in hardback in January 2011 and came out in paperback this March. He estimates it took him 7 years to learn how to write a memoir, and then another 3 years of hard work to get it down. A long time ago, as a songwriter, I developed a work ethic that takes (me) back to work every day, he says. Thats what it takes to write a book. I love the work. I love the solitude. I love the singular experience. Im an strange combination of things. Im a ham and Im an entertainer, but at the same time I handle the monk-like existence that goes into writing a book quite well. He plans on writing another book or two, he says, probably more memoirs. Although the idea of writing novels intrigues him, I dont know if as a writer I have the skill to pull off fiction, he says. Being a writer is a good existence, he adds. But so is riding a tour bus and getting out and singing, and getting back on, and sleeping and waking up in another town. Its all good. While Ms. Karrs books encouraged Mr. Crowell to write his own book, turnabout is fair play, he figured. Thanks to Mr. Crowells nudging and insistence, Ms. Karr is now a songwriter. I knew she could write songs, he says, (because) I read her books and I read her poetry. She resisted at first, he says. I said, Youre a language scholar. You have the gift. She said, I cant write songs, youre full of ----. One day we were talking about something, and she said, If the law dont want you, neither do I. And I said, See, thats a song. She said, OK, you start it. So he did, and sent her a verse. She sent him back a verse. And we had a song, he says. I said, OK, Im coming to New York. Their first day of writing together resulted in two songs. Before long, they had 15. Ten of them are on Kin, an album slated for release in June. Because many of the composition are narratives from the female point of view, Mr. Crowell enlisted some female friends to sing on the album: Norah Jones, Lucinda Williams, Rosanne Cash, Lee Ann Womack and Emmylou Harris. He also recruited Vince Gill and Kris Kristofferson. The result could have been a hodge-podge, but it all works, he says. Theres a cohesiveness to it that couldve easily been missed, he says, adding, its one big family delivering the songs. Mr. Crowell and Ms. Karr plan to go on the road together in June. I suspect there might be a singer down there too (in her), he says. Marys pretty indominable. She decides she wants to do something, and she does it, damn the torpedoes. When she has that kind of bravery, theres lots of stuff we can do.

The regular world cannot contain you. The regular world cannot sustain you or give you what you need. This is why, for decades upon decades, people have escaped small-minded small towns to go the Big City places like New York, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco. In Wicked, Elphaba (Anne Brummel), a green-skinned girl with magical powers, goes to the city of Oz to see the Wizard. When she arrives, something miraculous happens: For the first time in her life, she feels as if she belongs. Not only is everyone different, but diversity is celebrated. No one in the Emerald City gives her green skin a second glance. Were not in Kansas anymore, indeed. While in Oz, Elphaba discovers just how powerful and talented she is. She finds out that the things that ma de her different, that caused people to mock her when she was younger, are the very things that are her strengths and make her unique. She comes to realize that these are qualities to be treasured, not reviled. Theres a great scene a little earlier in the musical that just brought me to tears. Elphaba is ridiculed at a dance, but defiantly takes the floor and begins dancing to her own inner music with bold, fluid movements. Its ethereal and a great wordless act of self-declaration and self-definition. While Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz came to realize that theres no place like home, Elphaba discovers that home can be wherever you want it to be, and the most important thing is to feel at home within yourself. And thats a pretty cool message for a musical to deliver.Unfortunately, Wicked, playing at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall through April 15, doesnt explore this storyline with any depth or sophistication. It also has a lot of other things going on thematically and narratively, making it a somewhat clunky musical.Loosely based on Gregory Maguires 1995 novel, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, this production first played at the Mann Hall in 2009. I saw it then, and prior to that, I saw Wicked on Broadway. I have to say, I liked it more this time around. A lot of that I attribute to the performances of the two leads, Ms. Brummel and Tiffany Haas (as Glinda the Good Witch), who have spectacular voices and acting ability to match. Ms. Brummel is quite likeable and sympathetic as Elphaba. Tentative and gawky, she blossoms as the story progresses. Wearing a blue sparkly gown worthy of Loretta Lynn, Ms. Haas (a former Miss Ohio) makes her grand entrance in a bubble that floats down from above. Forever self-absorbed, Glinda greets the town folk by declaring, Its good to see me, isnt it? Ms. Haas strikes the right balance with her character. Yes, shes narcissistic, excessively perky and (in Elphabas oneword description), blonde. But shes somehow likeable. The two characters, complete opposites, are forced together when they become roommates at school. The show turns expectations on their head, including who winds up being wicked and who wins the heros hand (David Nathan Perlow as Fiyero, giving Glinda a run for her money when it comes to being shallow and narcissistic.)Wicked explores what happened to the Good Witch of the North and the Wicked Witch of the West before (and after) Dorothy flew in from Kansas, giving us a behindthe-scenes look at Oz. Oz, by the way, as designed by Eugene Lee, looks steampunk-ish, with wheels and cogs and a twisted Edwardian style. It also has its own lingo, with words such as devastrated, moodified and braverism. This is a show with abundant special effects, starting with a giant red-eyed dragon perched above the stage and a curtain that doubles as a map, complete with an emerald-green glowing Oz. Yes, there are flying monkeys who are quite scary. They leap about and glide above the stage, but none fly out over the audience in this production. And the Wizard uses an oversized mechanic head on a throne to represent himself. But look past all these bells and whistles and smoke and mirrors, and theres not much depth or sophistication. Compared to musicals such as, say, Memphis, Wicked is Broadway Lite, designed to appeal to the masses (and especially to pre-teen and teenage girls, who adore the show.) I found myself wanting more from this story. I love its style; I just wish it had more substance. At times, its like a TV sitcom on a stage; they go for the easy laughs so often I almost expect to hear a laugh track. In some ways, this isnt a surprise, as Winnie Holzman, who wrote the book, also wrote for televisions My So-Called Life and thirtysomething. The music and lyrics are by Stephen Schwartz, whos perhaps best known for Godspell. The show has two knock-out numbers: the bouncy, peppy Popular, sung by Ms. Haas, and Defying Gravity, Ms. Brummels anthem of self-empowerment, both in Act I. The cast is solid. Supporting actors Marilyn Caskey, as Madame Morrible, Paul Kreppel as the Wizard and Timothy Britten Parker as Dr. Dillamond are all excellent actors, worthy of note. Too bad they dont have better material to work with. The musical takes on groupthink, bullying, scapegoating and misuse of power. (Theres a great visual reference to Evita when Haas, her blond hair pulled back, stands on a raised stage and lifts her arms in the familiar V-shape.) And I was in love with Susan Hilfertys costumes, the perfect combination of innovation and whimsy. In the opening number, No One Mourns the Wicked, I couldnt help admiring their distinctive coats and asymmetrical hats. I would gladly brave the cold of winter if I had clothes like that. The black and white costumes for the dance at the Ozdust Ballroom in Dancing Through Life and the unending hues of green in the Emerald City costumes in One Short Day also caught my eye. If only Wicked were as good as its costumes! Theres a lot of hype surrounding this show, but unless youre a teenage girl who hasnt seen a lot of good theater, it doesnt live up to it. Its mostly spectacle, not truly theater. Wicked runs for three hours and drags in spots.Ultimately, when all is said and done, walking out of the theater is like waking up and realizing you never left Kansas to begin with.

But be careful that someone doesnt take his or her admiration too far. Use your persuasive skills to let him or her down easily. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a good time to begin setting farreaching goals and connecting with new contacts. Aspects also favor strengthening old relationships personal and/or professional. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A personal disappointment should be viewed as a valuable learning experience. Go over what went wrong and see where a change in tactics might have led to a more positi ve outcome. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Dont leave projects unfinished or personal obligations unresolved, or you might find yourself tripping over all those loose ends later on. A relative has important news. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Expect a challenge to the usual way you do things. Although you might prefer the tried-and-true, once you take a good look at this new idea, you might feel more receptive to it. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Much work has yet to be done to polish a still-rough idea into something with significant potential. Expect to encounter some initial rejection, but stay with it nonetheless. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) There still might be some communication problems in the workplace, but they should be resolved soon. Meanwhile, that tip from a friend should be checked out. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A new relationship appears to need more from you than you might be willing to give right now. Best advice: Resist making promises you might not be able to keep. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) That restless feeling encourages you to gallop off into a new venture. But remember to keep hold of the reins so you can switch paths when necessary. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A demanding work schedule keeps the high-spirited Goat from kicking up his or her heels. But playtime beckons by the weeks end. Have fun. You earned it. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Youre beginning to come out from under those heavy responsibilities you took on. Use this freed-up time to enjoy some much-deserved fun with people close to you. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Before you get swept away by a tidal wave of conflicting priorities, take time to come up for air, and reassess the situation. You might be surprised by what youll find. BORN THIS WEEK: Your leadership qualities are enhanced by a practical sense of purpose that keeps you focused on your goals.

THE NEWEST MUSICAL STAGE SPECTACLE FROM CIRQUE DREAMS ONE NIGHT ONLY, AT THE PHIL IN NAPLES!NAPLES FLO RID A W EEKL Y W EEK OF APRIL 5 -11, 201 2 C11 Is it worth $14 (3D)? YesWrath means revenge driven by anger, but when it appears in a movie title, good things happen. The Grapes of Wrath (1940) is an all-time classic. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is the best of that franchise and a darn good movie. Wrath of the Titans joins that company; its a solid action film with a decent enough premise and visual effects that are stunning for a very specific reason (more on that later). The sequel to 2012s Clash of the Titans, it picks up with demigod (half man/half god) Perseus (Sam Worthington) 10 years later. Living among men, he is a single father of Helius (John Bell) and works as a fisherman. But with the gods losing their power due to lack of human prayer, Perseus finds himself having to rescue his father, Zeus (Liam Neeson), from the capture of Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and Ares (Edgar Ramirez). Helping Perseus are Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike) and Poseidons (Danny Huston) son Agenor (Toby Kebbell), who has a dubious reputation. OK, so the story is just serviceable. Thats all its supposed to be. Give credit to scribes Dan Mazeau and David Johnson for not having any hideously stupid dialog, and to the actors for not letting any potentially stupid dialog come through in the delivery. Also give credit to the actors for working so well while knowing half the visual effects-filled picture (if not more) would be added in post-production. If you think acting is easy, try being scared to death or screaming at a blue screen, hoping the monsters created by CGI gurus six months later will warrant your fear. In this case, warrant they do. But its not just the creativity of the monsters which include a two-headed wolf-like animal with a bad attitude, giant Cyclops and demonic soldiers with two front sides and no rear. Its the details in the visual effects that make them great. Note the way our first descent into the underworld is an unbroken shot that takes us from ground level all the way down to Hades realm. Note the individual hairs on Zeus beard as they go from brown to gray, and the destruction of the fire-spewing, megamonster Kronos as it spreads everywhere. This is detailed, time-consuming work at its finest. Best of all and this is whats really impressive director Jonathan Liebesman is able to hold on extensive visual effects shots for longer than normal. Whereas some directors edit action scenes so quickly that its all a blur, Liebesman patiently moves the camera with Perseus as he evades and then encounters the two-headed monster. Specifically because of this lack of over editing, other moments palpably register as well. Wrath of the Titans has everything you want in this type of sequel: Its bigger and louder, but also more visually dynamic and, therefore, better than its predecessor. The Hunger Games (Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson) Set in the future, Katniss (Lawrence) leaves her friend Gale (Hemsworth) behind to fight to the death with Peeta (Hutcherson) and 22 other young adults in the titular Hunger Games. It takes too long to get to the games, but once there, its sufficiently exciting and suspenseful. Based on the Suzanne Collins novel. Rated PG-13. 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.

Paulo Szot sings the role of Lescaut, Manons protective cousin who struggles with temptations of his own; and David Pittsinger sings the Comte des Grieux, who wants his son out of Manons arms and into a respectable future. Fabio Luisa, principal conductor for The Met, leads the passionate opera, seen in a stylish new production by Laurent Pelly. Soprano Natalie Dessay, who stars in the next Live in HD performance, hosts the transmission. Running time is approximately four hours, including two intermissions. The Metropolitan Operas 2011-12 Live in HD season ends Saturday, April 14, with a transmission of Verdis La Traviata beginning at 12:55 p.m. In her first performance as Violetta at The Met, Ms. Dessay will wear the iconic red dress in Willy Deckers production. Matthew Polenzani sings Alfredo, Dmitri Hvorostovsky is Germont, and Mr. Luisi conducts. Approximate running time is 3 hours, 5 minutes. Tickets for The Mets Live in HD transmissions are $24 ($22 for seniors, $18 for children) and are available online at www. metopera.org/hdlive and also at participating theater box offices.

Sponsored by the Naples Art Association, camp sessions take place at The von Liebig Art Center June 11-Aug. 10. ARTScool differs from the traditional summer camp that has a set program for all campers. Children register for their choice of more than 50 classes, from clay-making to hip-hop dance, with one class offered from 9 a.m. to noon and another from 1-4 p.m. Halfand full-day sessions are available. The complete class directory may be found online at www.naplesart.org. ARTScool is very important to me, Callie Spilane, director of the program, says. When I was growing up, I wasnt one of the kids that colored inside the lines, and I wasnt really allowed to do it that way at my school. They didnt hang my pictures on the school walls. In contrast to her childhood experiences, Ms. Spilane strives to create a warm and welcoming environment at ARTScool. We encourage children to express their individuality and creativity, she says. Most ARTScool instructors are state-certified teachers in Collier County Public Schools. One instructor is from Florida Gulf Coast University, and others also teach art classes at The von Liebig Art Center throughout the year. Need and/or skill-based scholarships for ARTScool are offered through the Naples Art Association for children ages 9-14.

Children and grandchildren are invited for cookies and special activities, and volunteers from For the Love of Cats rescue group will have a few adoptable felines for cuddling. Cat and Crow, the beautifully illustrated story of two unlikely friends, delights and inspires young and old alike. Animal ambassador Jack Hanna has called the book an amazing story of two unlikely animals that have been magically brought together in this world. Drawn from first-hand accounts enjoyed by millions on YouTube and seen on The Oprah Winfrey Show, National Geographic, Animal Planet and Miracle Pets, the story of Cassie the cat and Moses the crow has captivated the publics imagination and touched their hearts. The story explains how the crow repeatedly fed the tiny stray kitten, keeping it alive until a kindly couple watching their interaction adopted the cat. The two continued to play together every day for four years. The story illustrates that if two natural enemies can become friends, then anything is possible. Also inside are educational, fun facts about cats and crows, clippings from newspapers that covered the story, and real-life photographs of Cassie and Moses at play. Sunshine Booksellers is at 677 S. Collier Blvd., Marco Island. BOOK REVIEWThe odds favor the reader in Paul Levines latest Paydirt, by Paul Levine. Createspace. 388 pages. $12.25 (e-book, $3.99). This thriller seems to be best-selling author Paul Levines first foray into putting out a new title as an e-book original (along with a print-on-demand option). Like many other successful authors of trade titles, Mr. Levine has seen the future and it is now. His wildly and widely popular Jake Lassiter series is being repackaged in e-book format at the same time he goes marching further into the digital age with this new standalone title. Though Mr. Levine no longer lives in Miami, he has long been associated with the city. It is a major setting in much of his work, including in this latest effort as the home of the Super Bowl. T he outc ome of this season-ending football game largely decides the fate of his principal characters, in particular Bobby Gallagher. Bobby, the son-in-law of Dallas Mustangs owner Martin Kingsley, would seem to have it all. Married to beautiful, intelligent, caring Christine and father to a good-natured son who also happens to be a math genius, he would seem to be one lucky guy. The problem is that he has allowed himself to be corrupted by the sports industry he works for: an industry in which the pursuit of winning and wealth is out of control. As a lawyer for the Mustangs, Bobbys job has been to successfully defend rapists and other lowlifes who happened to be key players on the team. Beginning with minor violations of responsible professional conduct, he has slid down the slippery slope into a moral abyss. And its been eating away at him. He needs to change his life. As it turns out, moral leverage is no leverage at all certainly not with his wifes father, who is the epitome of criminal greed rooted in vanity and obsession. But since Christine is a daddys girl who has never allowed herself to perceive her fathers cruelty and corruption, Bobby cant persuade her to join him in taking a stand. With no allies, Bobbys scruples and his blundering attempts to right things cost him his job, his law license, his reputation, his marriage and, perhaps, his parental rights. After leaving Dallas and moving to Miami, Bobby finds himself unemployable and crushingly depressed. An old friend gets him into the illegal bookie business, taking bets on sports competitions with a commission income. Bobby is rather inept at this endeavor, though his sons mathematical wizardry is of some help. Bobby needs money, gets in debt to a mobster and tries to find a bet he can win to pay off his life-threatening creditor and maybe get even with his father-in-law. In pursuing his redemption, Bobby absorbs plenty of brutal beatings, both physically and psychologically. His ultimate goal is to somehow put his family back together and rebuild his reputation. This involves exposing Martin and forcing Christine to see the true character of Craig Stringer. Stringer, the Mustangs superstar quarterback, is a thoughtless womanizer who longs to be a Mustangs executive when his playing days are over. Mr. Levine plays out the underdogs pursuit of his objectives in suspenseful detail. Along the way, he offers keen insights into the world of illegal gambling, the tainted business of professional football and the sorry mindset of celebrity egomania. While the authors several villains are cardboard characterizations, his central characters are drawn with some complexity. Readers will be truly moved by Bobbys credible inconsistencies, Christines mixture of discernment and blindness about other people, and young Scotts struggle with divided loyalties as well as his natural ability to reconcile differences. The author shows a deft touch, too, with his comfortable handling of Miami settings. The plot has a few fumbles, but all in all, Paydirt is riveting escapism especially for football fans and actual or wannabe risk-takers. e llin g n to e r e n jo r u de o f this rg ely a racr.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC30 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2012 WINNERBEST IN WOMENS CLOTHING7 YEARS On the Plaza, 3rd Street South Venetian Village, Park Shore Promenade, Bonita BayDaily 10 6 Sunday: 11 5The coral shirt in silk dupioni feels dressed up for spring ... Added elements make it special for you $142 in coral, pink and turquoise If you dont already have rabbits hopping around your garden, you might want to buy an antique garden rabbit to fool your friends. The wealthy English and French of the 17th century liked formal gardens with paths, fences and planned flower beds. They put urns, statues, fountains, sundials, gates, furniture and odd pieces like finials and wall sculptures into their gardens. In America, ornaments and furniture were being used in gardens by the 1600s. A brass sundial from 1630 is the earliest American garden piece that still exists. A wooden bench from the 1700s is the earliest known wooden piece. Gardens first had wroughtiron furniture and gates in the 18th and early 19th centuries. By the mid-19th century, most garden pieces were made of cast iron, not wrought iron, because cast iron was stronger. Gardens were filled with iron ornaments and fences. Full-size deer, dogs and other animals, tiered fountains, iron benches made to look like twining vines or tree branches, obelisks and sundials were all made of cast iron. So were armillary spheres that help map the movement of the stars around the earth. In the 1930s, there was even more interest in cast-iron objects. Inside houses you could find castiron doorstops, bookends, planters, hardware and toys. And in todays gardens, life-size rabbits, squirrels, frogs and even alligators and tall birds are among the many iron guests. Many of these figures were made years ago and have survived with just a little loss of paint. A vintage rabbit or squirrel can cost from $50 to $200 today. A full-size deer or dog sells for $500 to $2,000, and a three-tier iron fountain with a bird pedestal and leafy edges costs $3,000. Look in backyards when you go to a house sale. You might find a garden figure no one noticed.Q: I have four cafestyle chairs, each marked with a paper label that says Jacob Josef Kohn & Mundus. The chair-backs have a bentwood frame with three horizontal splats. Can you tell me age and value?A: Your chairs were made after 1914, the year Mundus, a German chair-manufacturing conglomerate, merged with Jacob & Josef Kohn, a competitor based in Vienna. And they probably were made before 1923. Thonet, the company whose founder invented the bentwood chair in the 1830s, merged with Mundus in 1923. Many different styles of bentwood chair-backs have been made. If yours are in excellent condition, each one would sell for about $100. Q: I own a square porcelain platter with flowers painted around the border and a central scene of two young girls playing in a grassy field. Its marked PM on the bottom. I was able to do enough research to learn that it was ma de between 1895 and 1910 by the Moschendorf Porcelain Factory of Hof-Moschendorf, Bavaria, Germany. But I cant find another platter like it online, and Im hoping its rare and worth a lot. Is it? A: No. Your platter is in a traditional Victorian-style popular at the turn of the 20th century. Assuming it was made by the factory you identified, the dish is not by a famous manufacturer and its probably not part of a set that can be matched with other dishes. It would sell today for $25 to $50. But do take another look at the mark. Other German companies used marks that ended in PM. One of those was the Royal Porcelain Manufacturing Co., which marked its wares KPM. Q: I have a small collection of vintage molded glass religious figurines. Theres one thats a mystery to me. Its a 7-inch light-blue glass sculpture of a standing Madonna and Child. Its signed P. dAvesn. I have learned that Pierre dAvesn once worked at Lalique, but I also found his name connected with Daum art glass. So Im confused. Can you help?A: Pierre dAvesn designed for Lalique in the early 1920s, then later that decade became a designer and manager at Daum. He managed Daums factory at Croismare, near Luneville, France, from 1927 until 1932. The factory specialized in making decorative but affordable glass pieces that were marked in various ways. One of the marks is the P. dAvesn signature on your figurine. Pieces made at the Croismare factory do not sell for as much as other prewar Daum designs. Your Madonna and Child figurine, if perfect, could be worth $100 to $150.Q: I have a set of dishes marked Losol Ware, Chusan, Keeling & Co. Ltd., Burslem, England. I would like to know more about them and if they are valuable. They are in perfect condition with no chips. A: Keeling & Co. was one of many potteries that once operated in Staffordshire, a county in England. Keeling was in business from 1886 to 1936. Pottery marked Losol Ware was made from about 1912 until the pottery closed in 1936. Chusan is the pattern name. Not all Keeling marks include the pattern name. Sets of dishes dont sell well. Serving pieces do better. A few show up at auctions. A 78-inch Losol Ware pitcher sold for $59 last year, and a 5 78-inch milk jug sold for $150. Tip: Silver saltshakers should be emptied after every use or lined with gold plating to avoid corrosion. Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

At a formal dinner recently, one of our tablemates confessed that he really didnt understand all that pairing business and felt uncomfortable choosing new wines. We drink what we know, said his wife. A nice, dry white that isnt expensive. What I know is there are so many different wines out there, it can be intimidating to experiment. But it can also be fun to find new wines that fit into your budget and enhance what you eat. So today we tackle whites, of which there are many good options. Pinot grigio is popular for its light aroma and color, its soft tones and flavors, ending in a smooth finish. Sauvignon blancs are generally crisper in acidity and possess citrusy flavors. Chardonnays are typically more complex and full-bodied, with notes of apple, pear or stone fruit. Next time you shop for wine, try one of these suggestions to broaden your horizons: Albarino is a Spanish wine thats straw white in color and has bright and zesty tropical flavors like pineapple, and an underlying crisp minerality. Pair this with seafood and poultry dishes. Gewurztraminer is grown in many locations that produce diverse styles. While Germany and Washington make a sweeter style, the German selections generally are higher in acidity than the softer-spoken Washington state selections. Alsace makes a drier version, with rich spice undertones. This is a perfect accompaniment for spicy Asian foods. Picpoul de Pinet is a fun and interesting wine from southern France. Citrusy in aroma, with melons, grapefruit and peach flavors and a light mineral acidity on the finish, this wine is well suited for Mediterranean styles of cooking, rich in seafood and sun-ripened vegetables. Riesling is a noted German grape with many styles. Traditional Rheingaus have a honey-like note and crisp underlying acidity, while the Washington state style is offdry and rich in flavor. This versatile wine goes well with dishes like chicken or pork, or by itself as an aperitif. Soave, from the Veneto region of Italy, is another overlooked and relatively inexpensive white. Medium in body, it is supple and refreshing with floral, apricot and honey notes and a clean, aromatic finish. Try this with fresh goat cheese and chicken, or pair with spicy Indian food. Torrontes from Argentina is highly aromatic. Its floral and citrus scents follow through to the palate for a clean, refreshing finish that makes this wine one worth searching for. The crisp acidity will match well with pork and seafood dishes. Verdelho wines are vibrant with balanced fruit and a buttery finish, making them an interesting alternative to chardonnay. Flavors range through the tropical fruits and can include pineapple, guava, melon and lime. It goes well with shucked oysters or spicy Asian cuisine. Viognier originally hails from the Rhone district in France. Today we see it has taken root in many locales around the world, producing wines with complex flavors of apricot and oranges and a nice crisp balance. Try this wine with lamb or spicy duck dishes.Wine picks of the week, with my tasting notes: Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling Eroica 2010 ($22): Pale yellow in color, the nose opens with honeydew and orange. The palate is medium light in body with flavors of lime and melon, balanced with a clean acidity and a semi-sweet lingering finish. Crios de Susana Balboa Torrontes 2011 ($18): Enticing aromas of peach, melon, floral and tropical fruit blend into a savory palate that is medium-bodied, dry and nicely balanced. Domaine Trimbach Gewurztraminer 2008 ($25): Golden color with a fruity, perfumed aroma of spice and lychees, with luscious white peach and tangerine flavors and a spicy dry finish. Hughes Beaulieu Picpoul de Pinet 2010 ($12): Fresh and clean aromas of pears with lemon-lime citrus notes merge into the delicate palate of melon and stone fruit with a crisp pear and acid balanced finish. Martin Codax Albarino 2010 ($18): This is an aromatic wine, with pear and apple notes that follow onto the palate, along with a touch of lime and pineapple, and an elegant crisp finish. Mollydooker The Violinist Verdelho 2010 ($22): Big aromas of lemon and spice with a rich full citrus flavor balanced with apples and pears, and a nice long finish. Pieropan Soave Classico 2010 ($16): Pale straw in color with fragrant apple and white flower aromas, this wine is alive with apple, pear, tangerine and herb flavors and has a long-lasting finish. Yalumba Viognier Eden Valley 2010 ($20): Rich, spicy aromas of apricot, honeysuckle and citrus follow onto the palate with intense apricot and stone-fruit flavors, ending in a rich citrus finish with a touch of mineral for balance. g t d G i e jimMcCRACKENvino@floridaweekly.com JIM MCCRACKEN/ FLORIDA WEEKLYEnjoy a glass of albarino tonight.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C51 During my last two evening visits to Gulf Coast Town Center in Estero, Im fairly certain that everyone else in Southwest Florida was there, too. Parking was challenging, and almost every restaurant overflowed with hungry humanity. Nonetheless, we managed to find a hospitable spot that had a roomy booth for us, with food and drink that was comforting, filling and inexpensive. It even had a guy entertaining the kids in the room with his balloon sculptures. On the Gulf Coast dining scene, there are bigger establishments than Aurelios, but the mid-sized pizzeria is one of my favorites and almost always provides some calm from the storm. (Theres an Aurelios on U.S. 41 in Naples, too.) The dining room is spotless and bright, with colorful Tiffanystyle lights and oldies playing quietly in the background. While the patio was full, the dining room still had lots of space. After a smiling young hostess escorted us to our aforementioned booth, an equally youthful and cheery server quickly appeared to take our drink order a Pama-tini (pomegranate vodka martini) for me and a Peroni beer for my companion. A a small chain that originated in Homewood, Ill., in 1959, Aur elios has made a name for itself with its pizzas, but it also offers appetizers, salads, sandwiches and full entrees, so everyone can find something that suits their taste. One of the specialties is the combination appetizer platter. You can pick three items from a list of six for $11.25. We tried the zucchini sticks, chicken tenders and toasted ravioli (hardly low-calorie fare, I know, but fine for an occasional treat). The basket that arrived contained enough to easily feed four people as an appetizer. The ravioli were lightly breaded, crisp on the outside, full of creamy cheese on the inside and just perfect dipped in a hearty marinara sauce served on the side. The zucchini sticks were similarly tender within, crunchy without and good with either the marinara or ranch dressing, which was also served on the side. The chicken tenders were as advertised moist chicken breaded and gently fried and tasty on their own but also good in either sauce. (The menu says barbecue sauce is available, too.) It took a while for our appetizers to show up, but our entrees arrived with lightning swiftness, while we were still working on the starters. In this case, it wasnt a bad thing, since wed never have been able to eat anything else if we had finished the apps. Aurelios offers pizza in six sizes: 6-, 10-, 13-, 15and 18-inch. The 6-inch is just right for a child, or might work for an adult as a small lunch or with a side salad. We tried a 10-inch with anchovies, roasted red peppers and mushrooms ($9.50 for the pizza, $1.50 per topping) and something the restaurant calls Mama Aurelios calabrese (pretty much what I grew up calling a calzone), which is also available in four sizes. Both items were served on plates atop wire cooling racks, a touch I really like because it prevents the crust from getting soggy. Aurelios makes a terrific crust thats prope rly crisp and delightfully yeasty. This one was topped with just enough cheese and marinara to hold the pieces of anchovy, red peppers and mushrooms. The peppers tasted as if they were fresh roasted, not plucked from a jar, adding a smoky dimension to the pie that blended well with the anchovies. The small (10-inch) calabrese with garlic ($11.25 plus $1.75 per topping) surpassed my definition of small. We could have shared it and been satisfied. It, too, had a crisp crust into which was stuffed a generous amount of mozzarella, a bit of marinara and a goodly amount of garlic. Although we had ordered it with spinach, it didnt appear to have any. I think spinach and perhaps some other vegetables would help balance out all that cheese. There was no way I would have ordered dessert had I been dining on my own, but since this was an official research expedition, we shared the house specialty, a cookie dough sundae ($7.95), which consisted of a (large, needless to say) freshly baked chocolate chip cookie topped with vanilla ice cream, lots of whipped cream, chocolate sauce and chocolate chips. Dont order this one unless there are several people to handle it or you are still really hungry after your meal. The cookie was chewy and still warm, creating a great counterpoint to the chilled toppings. Despite leaving some of our appetizers and entrees, along with most of the dessert, we left stuffed and happy. Ive dined at Aurelios on several occasions and find the service consistently friendly and helpful, the food consistently fresh and well prepared. It feels like a cozy neighborhood pizza joint even though the neighborhood is a sprawling, busy shopping center. food & wine CALENDAR Thursday, April 5, 11:30 a.m., Artichoke & C o.: The catering company pros demonstrate some of their dishes, including seared ahi tuna salad with avocado cilantro and spicy coriander citrus sauce and coconut encrusted shrimp and beef tenderloin on rosemary skewers with gorgonzola cheese fondue, with wines paired with each dish; $30, 1410 Rail Head Blvd.; 263-6979.
