Octogenarians, actors and artists, kids and local government representatives singing and dancing together, in the streets of downtown? Its happening, live, on Sunday, April 22, when a video called Lipdub Naples will be created and produced. Incorporating participants lip-synching lyrics to three popular songs while dancing up a storm, Lipdub Naples will be filmed with just one camera and no editing. It will begin at the corner of Third Street South and 13th Avenue South and will pick up people and momentum as it wends its way to the Naples Pier. The idea is based on two similar lipdubbing videos created in Traverse City and Grand Rapids, Mich. Those videos garnered national media recognition and millions of hits on Youtube. Lipdub Naples creator and executive producer Dave Elliott knows the level of work it takes to produce a quality video. He owns Voxnow Studios in Naples and hosts a live radio program on WGUF-FM every afternoon. The 88-year-old Naples icon Peter Creators hope a joyful Naples goes viral with LipdubIf so, you are not aloneHREE FRIDAYS FALL ON the 13th this year Jan. 13, April 13 and July 13 all 13 weeks apart. Strange. What does it mean? Bad luck for some, fodder for others. Still, the alignment of this day and number lends way to superstition, a sense of mystery in this modern age. Does the date curse the day? Does belief embellish the date? Psychics, psychologists and professors seem to agree: You create what you believe. You yield the power. You are your Friday the 13th.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 Shoot first, ask questions later. Stick to your guns. Run n gun or give em the gun either one, and preferably both. Ladies and gentlemen, its time to prep for the Republican National Convention, now fewer than 18 weeks away. Standing, kneeling or prone, just let your breath out. Then squeeze, dont pull. The gun is an extension of you. Here in the Sunshine State, deadly force is as legal as rain if you think your life is endangered or youre at risk of serious bodily harm. There is no duty to retreat, as there is in the laws of some states. Got all that? On Aug. 27, exactly 2,286 delegates, along with 2,125 alternates, will arrive in Tampa with families, friends, lobbyists, servants and hangers-on to begin the convention. Every last one of them should be acutely aware of these facts. So should you. Though they will be a diverse group men and women of all ages and backgrounds, from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories they will travel to Tampa with a single unified purpose, according to the official GOP website. They sure will. To avoid getting shot. This is an exciting time for Republicans nationwide because they steadfastly favor a hands-off policy of gun regulation, along with a hands-on policy when it comes to guns themselves. Especially Republicans in Florida. Rifles, shotguns and pistols: your .45s, your .44 mags, your .357s and .38s, your gats, rods, roscoes, six-guns, niners, your semi-autos and autos, your burners, heaters and pocket rockets. Here in the bastion of conservative Christian values we got us some rootin tootin shootin worshippers and the most liberal gun laws in the country. When you come to the Sunshine State, folks, youve come to the buckle of the Bible belt the man-up Bible that says an eye for an eye. Not the wimpy Bible that says, turn the other cheek. Dont get confused here. When it comes to guns, Floridas very conservative Republicans are actually more liberal than liberals like President Obama. If you think you need it, well by God and the Second Amendment you can have it in the Sunshine State. Thats courtesy of GOP legislators in Washington and Tallahassee who love the gun lobby as much as they love the insurance lobby, the pharmaceutical lobby, the oil lobby and the hotel lobby. (To be fair, the only reason they love the hotel lobby is because the hotel bar adjoins it. Have a drink or three, and check your load.) All of which poses a problem for Tampa police and city officials. As it stands, 28 of the 50 not-very-United States are united in this single rule: Any Florida gun permit is okay in their state, and vice versa. So you have states like Texas, Alabama and Mississippi where anybody who has a gun can carry it straight into Florida. And in those states, any Republican who doesnt carry a gun is considered a terrorist, just like he is in Florida. Think of it this way (and they do): An Elephant with no gun is really just a lefty with no testicular fortitude a flowerwaving lefty. A traitorous supporter of the emasculating Democratic agenda to pry our hands off our guns while theyre still warm and alive, not when theyre cold and dead. Heres what all this means: Come August, a lot of conventioneers will show up in Tampa with guns. And they will be allowed to carry them around downtown Tampa, because the states Republican legislators saw fit to prohibit local governments here from passing their own rules to restrict guns, even at special times. Not only that, but protestors can show up with guns, too. And they can also carry them around downtown Tampa. And even if the Tampa police ban all kinds of other weaponry from the city during convention week and reports suggest that they will people are still going to be carrying guns. But dont worry. At least they wont be allowed to carry maces, battle axes, bayonets, hunting knives, butcher knives, daggers, tridents, pitchforks, bludgeons, blow guns, hand grenades and the like. Besides, whats a crossfire or two among friends? Its true, all those who wander around downtown Tampa with handguns will have to have permits from this state or 28 others unless they want to bring rifles and shotguns. In which case, no permits are needed. But they cant carry those around unless theyre hunting. God knows Tampa is full of wild pigs, so I imagine the hunters could show up, too. Unfortunately for Floridas delegates to this years Republican National Convention, they could easily get outgunned. Although the Sunshine State normally gets to send 99 delegates to the convention, in 2012 it will only be 50, about the number of a reinforced rifle platoon. Never mind that the state has 19 million or so citizens and a powerful presence in presidential elections (29 electoral votes). Republicans here are being punished by their national committee leaders for jumping their primary election ahead of many other states on the national schedule, and picking Mitt Romney as the candidate way back on Jan. 31. The race was over then, as I pointed out at the time. The Republican spoils went to a man who now owns two shotguns. He owned none until after the 2008 presidential race, when he claimed to have hunted varmints all his life and then had to admit he didnt know which varmints, and hed only ever been hunting twice. Of course, Mr. Romney doesnt know which end of the shotgun to point toward the target, and he might not know the difference between a rifle and a shotgun. Im looking forward to going hunting with you, he told comedian Jeff Foxworthy in Alabama last month. And you can actually show me which end of the rifle to point. Lets hope not. The last time a Republican with a foot in the White House went hunting, he shot the man beside him, not the bird in front of him. That was Dick Second Amendment Cheney. One final word of advice then, in preparation for August in Tampa: If you see Mitt, duck. COMMENTARY w g y g s rogerWILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com Gunning for Tampa

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 richLOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONThe murders that dont count amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Delric Miller IV died in a hail of bullets a month ago. When someone fired 37 AK-47 rounds into his Detroit home at 4:30 a.m., he was mortally wounded while dozing on the couch. He was 9 months old. No one made the multicolored teething ring he got for Christmas or his toy hammer into national symbols of random violence. Last year, Charinez Jefferson, 17, was shot and killed on a Chicago street. She begged the shooter not to shoot her because she was pregnant, a pastor explained. The alleged assailant, Timothy Jones, 18, shot her in the head, chest and back after seeing her walking with a rival gang member. New York Times columnist Charles Blow did not write a column about Jeffersons killing as a symbol of the perils of being a young black woman in America. Last June, a stray bullet from a confrontation on a Brighton Beach, N.Y., boardwalk killed 16-year-old Tysha Jones as she sat on a bench. A 19-yearold man, out for revenge after an earlier scuffle on the boardwalk, was charged in the shooting. Tyshas heartbroken mother was not featured on all the national TV shows. In January, 12-year-old Kadejah Davis was shot and killed when, allegedly, 19-year-old Joshua Brown showed up at her Detroit house to demand the return of a cellphone from Davis mother. When Brown didnt get the phone, he fired shots through the front door. No one held high-profile street protests to denounce gunplay over such trifles. Everything about the Trayvon Martin case in Florida is a matter of contention. About this, though, there should be no doubt: If Martin had been shot by a black classmate, if he had been caught in a random crossfire, if he had looked at a gang member the wrong way, his death would have been relegated to the back pages of the local newspaper. Not a cause, not even a curiosity: Just another dead young black man. Nothing to see here. Please, move on. Jesse Jackson is right that blacks are under attack. According to a 2005 FBI report, blacks accounted for 13 percent of the population and 49 percent of all homicide victims. In 93 percent of the cases, the killer was black. Half of the victims were ages 17 to 29. That works out to 4,000 murders of young blacks in one year, overwhelmingly at the hands of other blacks. In the communities where these killings occur there is, to put it in Jacksons inimitable terms, no justice and no peace. There is no comparable epidemic of half-Hispanic neighborhood-watch volunteers like George Zimmerman shooting young black men. An injustice may well have been done in the handling of the Martin shooting, but lets not fool ourselves. Zimmerman could be arrested, convicted and hanged tomorrow, and it will have no effect on the lives of young black people in communities beset by social disorder. Whatever happens to Zimmerman, the drip-drip of spilled blood will continue, all but ignored except in the police blotter. In America, the lives of young black people are cheap, unless they happen to fit the right agenda. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Black in White Plains: The police killing of Kenneth ChamberlainMy name is Kenneth Chamberlain. This is my sworn testimony. White Plains police are going to come in here and kill me. And thats just what they did. In the early hours of Saturday, Nov. 19, 2011, U.S. Marine veteran Kenneth Chamberlain Sr. accidentally hit his LifeAid medical-alert pendant, presumably while sleeping. The 68-year-old retired corrections officer had a heart condition, but wasnt in need of help that dawn. Within two hours, the White Plains, N.Y., police department broke down his apartment door and shot him dead. Chamberlain was African-American. As with Trayvon Martin, the black teen recently killed in Florida, there are recordings of the events, recordings that include a racial slur directed at the victim. The opening quote, above, was related to us by Kenneth Chamberlain Jr., when he appeared on the Democracy Now! news hour talking about the police killing of his father. Ken Jr. was holding on to the LifeAid pendant that his father wore around his neck in case of a medical emergency. Perhaps unbeknownst to the White Plains police who arrived at Ken Sr.s door that morning, the LifeAid system includes a box in the home that, when activated, transmits audio to the LifeAid company, where it is recorded. Ken Jr. and his lawyers heard the recording in a meeting at the office of the Westchester County district attorney, Janet DiFiore. Ken Jr. repeated what he heard his father say on the tape: He says, Im a 68-year-old man with a heart condition. Why are you doing this to me? ... You also hear him pleading with the officers again, over and over. And at one point, thats when the expletive is used by one of the police officers. One of Chamberlains attorneys, Mayo Bartlett, told me about the racial slur. Bartlett is a former Westchester County prosecutor, so he knows the ropes. He was very explicit in recounting what he heard on the recording. Kenneth Chamberlain Sr. said to the police, Im a sick old man. One of the police officers replied, We dont give a f--k, n-----! (that last word rhymes with trigger, which they would soon pull). The recording also includes a taunt from the police, as related by Bartlett, Open the door, Kenny, youre a grown-ass man! It was when Ken Jr. related how the police mocked his fathers military service that he broke down. He said, Semper fi. So they said, Oh, youre a Marine. Hoo-rah. Hoo-rah. And this is somebody that served this country. Why would you even say that to him? Ken Jr. wept as he held his fathers Marine ring and Veterans Administration card. The LifeAid operator that November morning, hearing the exchange live, called the White Plains police in a desperate attempt to cancel the call for emergency medical aid. Chamberlains niece, who lives in the building, ran down, trying to intervene. Chamberlains sister was on her cellphone, offering to talk to her brother. The police denied any attempt at help. One was heard on the recording saying, We dont need any mediator. The heavily armed police used a special device to take Chamberlains door completely off the hinges and, as chillingly captured in the Taser-mounted camera, burst into the apartment. Mayo Bartlett recounted seeing Chamberlain shirtless in the video, hands at his side, without the knife or hatchet that police claim he wielded, standing in his boxer shorts. The minute they got into the house, they didnt even give him one command. They never mentioned, Put your hands up. They never told him to lay down on the bed. They never did any of that. The first thing they did, as soon as that door was finally broken off the hinges, you could see the Taser light up, and it was charged, and you could see it going directly toward him. The last thing Bartlett hears on the Taser tape is shut it off, meaning, turn off the video recording, which the police did. Within minutes, they would shoot Chamberlain twice. Four months later, no one has been charged with the killing. Democracy Now! co-host Juan Gonzalez revealed the name of the shooter through his reporting in the New York Daily News, as White Plains Officer Anthony Carelli. Carelli is to be tried in coming months for alleged police brutality against two brothers, the sons of Jordanian immigrants, who say Carelli beat one of them, Jereis Hatter, while handcuffed, and called him a raghead. Trayvon Martin was killed Feb. 26. A Florida grand jury is expected to begin the investigation into his killing on April 10. The next day, April 11, a New York grand jury is scheduled to begin hearing evidence in the case of Kenneth Chamberlain Sr. He was killed last November. In both cases, an AfricanAmerican male was gunned down. In both cases, the shooter is known to the police. In Chamberlains case, it is the police. And no one has been arrested.

McDonalds. www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 One of the more energetic and upbeat individuals Ive met on the Paradise Coast is Gene Landrum, professor emeritus of Hodges University. As a weekly guest on my show for several years, he reminds us that how we view ourselves and the world can determine our success and happiness. Dr. Gene is a high-tech start-up executive turned motivational speaker, educator and writer. As a businessman he launched five firms, three of which exceeded $100 million in revenues and the most notable of which was the Chuck E. Cheese chain of family entertainment. After years of interacting with entrepreneurial wunderkinds, he completed his doctoral dissertation on Innovation: What makes the great tick, which led to more than a few books about psychobiographical eminence. I think the business undergraduate and graduate students at Hodges University are fortunate to have professors like Dr. Gene who not only have the academic credentials, but also the distinguished business background to teach how it works in the real world as well. He was born in Covington, Ky., in 1935 and was reared in a Catholic military academy in Ohio from age 7-13. He graduated from high school in Northern Kentucky, having excelled academically and in baseball, football, basketball and track, and went on to earn a bachelors degree at Tulane University. He completed his doctorate in 1990 and began teaching at International College (now Hodges University) in 1995. A highly sought-after speaker, hes given addresses to groups in Congress, including a group of congresswomen in 1997 because of his writings on Margaret Thatcher and Golda Meir. Since I met Gene, hes written these five books: Sales Psychology: Its an Art, Not a Science (2012); Warriors Who Win: Diverse and Different (2011); Cover Your Assets and Become Your Own Liability (2010); The Innovative Mind: Stop Thinking, Start Being (2008); and Paranoia & Power: Fear & Fame of Entertainment Icons (2007). His wife, Diedra, has a doctorate in leadership and is director of counseling for Collier County schools. They have four grown children and spend time at their homes in Lake Tahoe (where the accompanying photograph shows him atop a ski hill) and in Paris when not enjoying life along the Paradise Coast. Ive met few individuals who exhibit Genes energy and lust for life. I look forward to the weekly jolt of enthusiasm he delivers on my show. Bob Harden is the producer and host of The Bob Harden Show, airing from 7-8 a.m. weekdays at www.bobharden.com. The show is archived for listeners convenience. K a t d p t H bobHARDEN e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org PROFILES IN PARADISEDelivering a jolt of enthusiasm everywhere he goes Talking points with Gene LandrumSomething thats been on my mind: How can I get all the things done I want to do and travel around the world, too? Something my mother was right about: She always said, Consider the source. Something that makes me laugh: Puns on the vagaries of life, such as, Theres no free lunch. Last book read: Blind Spots: Why Smart People do Dumb Things by Madeleine Van Hecke Something Ill never understand: Why fat people never think theyre fat, and why ignorant people always think theyre right. Something that would surprise people about me: People think that I am very rich. I was once, but I lost millions. Now every time I try to help someone nd seed money, they dont know why I dont just give them half a million or so. What Im most proud of: Going back to school for my doctorate when my friends were all retiring to the beach or golf course, and then publishing 18 books (despite the fact that I didnt always show up for English class). High school job: I dug ditches for a big utility rm and found it shocking that some of the older men had little motivation other than to get a paycheck and go through it at the bar on Friday night. For them, life was just about survival. What the Paradise Coast really needs: A spring training baseball team; thus, a stadium to attract a team. What I love most about the Paradise Cost: The well-read, well-bred people here. What I miss most when Im away: People like the above.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 make it a day. Here, those who study science and those who explore the realms of spirit, even those dealing with the superstitions of sport and stage, share how they see Friday the 13th as an illusion, not an evil, but something that can be swept away.An unlucky day, long agoDeborah Kelemans grandfather was born on Friday the 13th. Her family thought it was funny. A merchant sailor, he once saved someones life, received a medal from the mayor and was very much someones good luck. It shouldnt be viewed as an unlucky day, she says of Friday the 13th. It was unlucky because of what happened a day years ago, many, many years ago. Ms. Keleman is a psychic and owner of The Labyrinth, a spiritual resource center in South Fort Myers. I feel peoples feelings. I use cards. I get pictures in my head. I hear a voice. I get dead people, but not on demand, she says. Cross-referencing history with her memory, she goes to her Toshiba and consults Wikipedia, searching the Knights Templar to explain why she believes Friday the 13th became unlucky. Dial-up Internet, her connections slow. She reads aloud the details of Friday, Oct. 13, 1307 when King Philip IV of France had the Templars arrested, tortured into confession and burned at the stake. Mrs. Keleman says the Templars had money, the king was in debt, Its all about power. She says some superstitions are good, like not walking under a ladder, Well, duh, and finds others to be true, If youre getting married and its raining, not good, she shakes her head and her finger. Most superstitions, she feels, turn into a game of telephone, You tell something over and over and everybody changes it. Looking to two women in her shop, shes curious whats been telephoned down to them. By chance, or intuition maybe, the younger woman says, I was born on the 13th. I always thought it was good luck. Turns out she was married on Friday the 13th. But that wasnt good, says her mother. That was just a lesson, the woman accepts.The opposite of prayerPam Minton has taught at Edison State College for 23 years. She drives a Volkswagen Beetle and listens to reggae. She teaches speech, but considers Sicilian folklore her hobby. She believes in signs passed down through her Sicilian heritage: If a bird flies at your window, its a sign of death. If someone accidentally leaves their shoes on your table, its also a sign of death. If a visitor overstays her welcome, put a broom in the corner and your visitor will leave. Signs, I think, are put in our path to warn us of impending futures, Ms. Minton says. If we watch the signs, we can avoid coming face to face with whatever the disaster. A famous sign would be rats leaving a ship, Thats physical evidence the ship is sinking, she says. Another would be silent birds, if you dont hear them singing, cover up, a storms coming. I dont classify this as superstition, she clarifies, I say its folklore, and I respect it. In Italy, Ms. Minton says Friday the 17th would be considered unlucky. In Spain, Tuesday the 13th. Adding to the American superstition she mentions Tomas Lawson, author of the 1907 novel Friday the Thirteenth, wherein a broker capitalizes on the superstitious day to bring down Wall Street. Is it real? she asks of Friday the 13th. If you expect bad, youre setting yourself up for the fall. I find nothing unlucky about it. When she thinks of all the fear attached to the day, she says it can have the opposite effect of prayer. You know when people get together to pray for a good o utcome, to pray for the grace of God to heal, she poses, Oftentimes it happens, because of positive collective consciousness. She feels negative collective consciousness holds the same potential, Its exponential, its contagious, panic exudes.Banishing the anxietyPsychic medium Jennie Martin says you manifest what you believe. If you believe in signs, you manifest signs; you manifest your thoughts, and your thoughts can change in an instant. Most people think their thoughts control them, Ms. Martin says, But you can actually control your thoughts. Ms. Martin owns Masters of Healing and Light, a Fort Myers center for enlightenment off College Parkway. Buddhas and angels, stones and crystals, tarot decks and essential oils fill her shop. Wednesday evenings she leads a spiritual development class, where she teaches her students manifestation. Ms. Martin says one of her students has learned to dissipate anxiety: She listens to her thoughts, she chooses new ones, she reasons it out. Ms. Martin believes this same thought process can help overcome the hysteria of Friday the 13th. Creating conscious thought helps dispel the anxiety, she says, again using her student as an example, She became more conscious of the thought she was unconsciously participating in. She brought her anxiety to consciousness. I swear it works, you just have to do the work. The psychic says people get stuck on their story, they believe their story so much, they dont know how to separate their individual self from their belief. If you believe it, its your truth, she says. Contemplating superstition, the number 13, the date Friday the 13th, thoughts not serving you, she surmises, When you focus on worry, what do you think you bring about? More worry. These thoughts we entertain in our minds, how long do we want to participate in them?Friday the 13th, cause or effect?Before practicing at Peace River Psychology in Port Charlotte, Dan Goldman, Ph.D., counseled in Naples and Fort Myers. He typically treats more clinical issues like depression or addiction, but when he thinks of superstition, he says to some degree, you create your own luck. If you believe in something, you act a certain way and bring about the result you want, he says. Regarding Friday the 13th, he says people have a tendency to mistakenly couple the day and date as cause and effect, when in reality, its a false association, Correlation does not imply cause. He goes back to his college days when one of his professors compared two seemingly unrelated occurrences: Murder rates increase, as ice cream sales increase. Might one conclude ice cream causes murder? Murder rates go up when its hot outside, says Dr. Goldman, making people irritable, more inclined to rash decisions. Ice cream sales also go up when its hot outside. Its not cause, its a third variable altogether. Considering athletes, Dr. Goldman likes to counterbalance superstitious behavior with the term locus of control. If someone has an internal locus of control, they feel their behavior impacts their o utcome, like a basketball player who goes to the gym every day and shoots 100 free throws, If I practice, I will shoot better, the psychologist explains. But if a person has an external locus of control, they feel helpless and may reach for the irrational, like a player approaching the foul line, dribbling the ball three times and wiping the sweat from their forehead with their left forearm, hoping to conjure a better chance. If a baseball team puts on rally caps and tries to make a comeback in the ninth inning, more power to them. It doesnt hurt anybody, he says. But if your superstitious behavior causes you a great deal of distress, you may want to talk to a mental health counselor.The illusion of the stageAndrew Kato remembers the moment he learned the theater was make-believe. He was a little boy, maybe 5 years old. His mother was a puppeteer in England. He walked backstage and saw the show as an invention. I was fascinated, he says. I thought what I saw was real. Now working as the producing artistic director of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, southeastern Floridas largest regional theatre, Mr. Kato says hes built a career out of creating illusions on stage. In this vein, he sees Friday the 13th as an illusion of a day, though Mr. Kato concedes he and his colleagues embrace superstition, because were gypsies at heart. People in the theater move around a lot, he says. And I think a lot of the folklore, thats why its stuck with us. One such superstition: The stage can never go dark, hence the ghost light, to keep ghosts away. To be practical, its so you dont trip and fall, Mr. Kato says. Its also believed a bad dress rehearsal foretells a good opening night. Mr. Kato found truth in this when the Maltz put on Smokey Joes Caf. During rehearsal, a large sign fell, light bulbs shattered. All the actors were fine, says the artistic director. We stopped dress rehearsal and said, Good. Well have a good opening night. Opening night proved near sellout. Carrying on, You cant say the name of a certain Shakespearean play in a theater, Mr. Kato hesitates, I wont say it because Im in a theater right now. He speaks of Macbeth, cursed as the Globe Theatre was believed to burn down after a performance of the play, other origins of this superstition exists, some involving spells. If you do say it, Mr. Kato continues, You must go outside, turn around three times and spit. Mr. Katos personal superstition: I always check my fly before I go on stage, seriously, every night.Little green menManaging the Fort Myers Miracle for three years, Jake Mauer has seen many superstitions baseball players putting their shoes on the same way, taking the same amount of steps to the batters box, the same number of pre-SUPERSTITIOUSFrom page 1 MARTIN GOLDMAN KATO

We had one pitcher who would eat the same sandwich from the same place every game he played, Coach Mauer says. You could pretty much set your clock to it. Youd come into the clubhouse, and there he was, eating his club sandwich. Playing baseball himself for five years, Coach Mauer had his own superstitions. He wore the same pair of batting gloves for a whole season. By the end of the year, they were all ripped, tattered and torn, he says. But I made sure I washed my socks, thats just disgusting. When things are going well, you want to keep things the same, he says. When things are going bad, you want to break the jinx. Hes seen players don new spikes or change their undershirts. But the strangest superstition hes ever seen was a pitcher with little green army figures, like the kind you see in Toy Story, the old-time green army guys, Coach Mauer describes. On days this pitcher would play, he would take his army dudes into the dugout, set them up, then go out and pitch. It probably had no influence on his performance, little green guys or not. Whats gonna happen is gonna happen, Coach Mauer says. But he felt more at ease when they were there. And thats the way Coach Mauer sees superstition. When youre looking for answers, it helps you believe in yourself. It does affect your mindset, he says. If youre confident and you think thats the reason youre doing well, generally when youre at ease, whatever youre doing, baseball or whatever, you think you have more of an opportunity to succeed.Once in a blue moonAn ordained minister, Wendyl Jay prefers priestess, though she usually doesnt go by any title at all. She used to be into Wicca, now shes not into anything organized; says its best to say shes a happy pagan. She believes in Mother Earth, God/Goddess, fairies and angels. She does not believe in coincidence. She does not believe in the devil. That whole concept was always weird to me, she says. As a little girl she lived between Santo Domingo and Cochiti Pueblo in New Mexico. She now runs the Manna Reading Center, a metaphysical shop on Fowler Street, near downtown Fort Myers. But it was out west where she observed, many superstitions inherently protect children. She spins the tale of the lady standing in white, She would stand outside your window, call to you and try to lure you out, Ms. Jay says. Then she would snatch you in her arms and you would never be heard from again. This terrified Ms. Jay as a child, but it kept her and her friends in their beds, not venturing out into the night, something we adventurous children always wanted to do. She likens superstitions to hearsay or hand-me-downs, something that still carries a thread of truth, Everything always does, she says. It just doesnt have to be taken to such extents. She describes astrological cycles and the calendar as circular. Three Friday the 13ths in the same year has happened before. Three Friday the 13ths in the same year will happen again. The last occurrence was in 2009, the next is set for 2015. Its like blue moons, she says, when two full moons fall in the same calendar month. You know that saying, Once in a blue moon, well every once in a while, it actually happens. But what she would like people to remember most when it comes to this superstitious day, You are the dreamer, she says. Friday the 13ths the dream. MAUER JAY
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATEChomper filching In January, police in Bridgeville, Pa., investigated a series of vehicle break-ins, including one of a car belonging to Kathy Saunoras, who reported that only her dentures were taken. Two weeks later, health worker Marlene Dupert, 44, was charged with yanking dentures out of the mouth of one of her charges at a nursing home in Selinsgr ove, Pa. Also in February, Evelyn Fuller, 49, was charged with robbing the First National Bank in Waynesburg, Pa. a crime necessitated, she told a police officer, because she needed money for new dentures. Government in action A February bill in the Wyoming legislature to prepare the state for possible secession authorized a task force to consider establishing a state army, navy, marine corps and air force, and one amendment added the consideration of purchasing an aircraft carrier. Wyoming is, of course, landlocked, but it does have the 136-squaremile Yellowstone Lake, though that body of water is high up in the Teton mountains. (The aircraft-carrier amendment was defeated even though 27 representatives voted for it.) Texas announced in February that it would deploy six gunboats to patrol the Mexican borders Rio Grande river. Said a state Department of Safety official, It sends a message: Dont mess with Texas. With a National Institute of Justice grant, the Houston Police Department was able to learn precisely how embarrassingly bad it had been in investigating rape cases. In February it conceded that, as of December, it had on hand 6,663 untested rape kits (some from the 1980s) taken from rape victims at the time of the crime but then apparently ignored. (Not all are significant: In some rapes, a perpetrator has already confessed or been convicted, and still other victims recanted, and in still others, the statute of limitations has run out.) After every snowfall in recent years, Doug Rochow of Ottawa, Ontario, has routinely taken his shovel and cleared two paths in a park near his home (since the park is apparently a low priority for municipal snow-clearing), but in March, the city ordered him to stop. Mr. Rochow said his aim was to keep people from hurting themselves on uncleared paths (thus perhaps saving the city money on lawsuits). The citys reverse-logic position, according to a Toronto Star report, was that if Mr. Rochow cleared the paths, more people would be encouraged to use them, increasing the citys exposure to lawsuits. Great art! It wasnt on a scale with an infinite number of orangutans using an infinite number of iPads, but the conservation group Orangutan Outreach has begun to supply certain zoos with iPads, hoping to encourage apes creativity and social networking. At the Milwaukee Zoo, a handler holds the device while an orangutan operates a painting app with its fingers. (Orangutans like to paint, and theyre capable of using this (tablet), he said, adding the benefit that theres no paint to eat.) At the Memphis Zoo recently, said an Outreach official, the apes seem happy when they recognize images of other apes on the iPad. The Toronto Zoos iPad is expected soon. In March came word from Taiwan that the prominent Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts had awarded a prize worth the equivalent of $13,500 to student Wong Tin Cheung for creating the face of a man by using the artists own urine. His piece, Blood Urine Man, presented to judges in a toilet bowl, used urine of different colors, supposedly to match the pigments of the Marvel Comics superhero Iron Man. People with issuesAdrian Baltierra, 51, was charged with solicitation in February in Bradenton, Fla., after, according to police, he approached an undercover female officer, who was posing as a prostitute, and agreed to a transaction. In exchange for $15, Mr. Baltierra would be accorded the opportunity to take a whiff of the prostitutes g enital aroma (although street slang was used in the negotiation). Least-competent criminals Canadian Jasmin Klair pleaded guilty in federal court in Seattle in March to smuggling nearly 11kg of cocaine into the U.S. She had been arrested upon arrival at a bed and breakfast called the Smugglers Inn, located about 100 feet from the border in Blaine, Wash. According to police in Lake Ariel, Pa., alleged burglar Christopher Wallace had loaded his van with goodies from a homes first floor, but instead of calling it a night, he re-entered to check out the second floor. Mr. Wallace was later rushed to the hospital after accidentally falling out a second-floor window, resulting in a broken back, hip and arm. Recurring themesNews of the Weird has reported on several prolific men who sell their sperm to sperm banks, to be selected from catalogs by multiple mothers-to-be seeking high-quality breeding (and also one case of a middle-aged physician who collected womens money to find donors but then decided to self-supply his clients). Fremont, Calif., computer-security worker Trent Arsenault, 36, is Americas most notorious rogue donor, offering his output absolutely free to same-sex and lowincome clients who have difficulty procuring through sperm banks. He is so far the father of at least 15 children. Since 2010, the federal Food and Drug Administration has been trying to shut him down as an unregistered manufacturer of body tissue who must therefore adhere to federal safety regulations. Mr. Arsenault, according to a profile in New York magazine in February, is the son of disapproving parents (father, a Pentecostal minister), and in addition, is a virgin. providing quality healthcare for all since 1977www.healthcareswfl.org formerly chs healthcare let our family care for your family c 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, 239.591.1755

Eligible students are juniors and seniors who are undergraduate leaders, and are members of the universitys Lead Team who have special interest in campus leadership programs and activities, student organizations and community involvement.

Naples really is a piece of paradise, where we all live, love, laugh and even dance. As Mr. Elliott describes it, the video will then cut to energetic, joyful and organic action that features fun, upbeat songs that represent us and our town. I want to show the world that Naples is the place for all ages to have a good time. Performers include hip-hop dancers, barbershop quartets, Dixieland bands, cheerleaders, tumblers, tap and ballet dancers, students from Sabal Palm Elementary School and the Naples Philharmonic String Quartet. Adding an artistic twirl, Lipdub Naples will feature local painter Mimi Wilson and John McKerrow, creator and director of Florida Weeklys Best New Theater Company, Shakespeare in Paradise. Community leaders such as County Commissioners Donna Fiala, Georgia Hiller and Tom Henning will sing alongside City Council members Bill Barnett and Sam Saad and Collier County School Board member Pat Carroll. Media personalities are expected to join the fun, too. Lipdub Naples will start at the gazebo at the corner of Third Street South and 13th Avenue South with the song Dancing in the Street by Martha and the Vandellas. The band of merrymakers will continue to strut their stuff singing Taio Cruises Dynamite down Broad Avenue to Gordon Drive, and will shake it all the way to the pier, where theyll belt out Let the Sunshine In by The Fifth Dimension. In addition to Mr. Elliott, the Lipdub Naples committee is comprised of producer Mary Kay Dedousis; video coordinator Joel Banow (who directed the moon landing for CBS in 1969); videographer David Fralick of Alpha Media; former New Jersey police officer Jerry Parino and his wife Diane, Keeth Kipp; and webmaster Anthony Wilson. The committee is grateful for the continuous support from such sponsors as Third Street South Association, Neapolitan Enterprises and the city of Naples, Tamiami Ford, PNC Wealth Management, Naples International Film Festival and various Rotary and Kiwanis clubs. Upon completion, corporate sponsor Silverspot Cinemas at Mercato will host a premier viewing of Lipdub Naples followed by a reception. Then watch for the video to go viral on the web, says Mr. Elliott. The video will be promoted worldwide by the Naples, Marco Island, Everglades Convention and Visitors Bureau.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA34 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 High concentration of seniors contributes to ranking among the top Booziest Cities BY DAVID SCHIMMELSpecial to Florida Weekly April is National Alcohol Awareness Month and serves as an opportunity to raise awareness that alcoholism in Collier County is, unfortunately, far too common. According to the 2010 health risk data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Naples-Marco Island drinks more than the national average. The CDC statistics show that of the 200 communities surveyed, we ranked second for heavy drinking. In another recent headline-making study, the 2011 U.S. News and World Report ranked three Florida cities Naples-Marco Island, Palm Bay-Melbourne and Cape Coral in the top 10 booziest cities. So whats the correlation? All three cities have far more senior citizens than the national average. When we take a deeper look at how problem drinking can affect the high numbers of senior citizens in Southwest Florida a place filled with what appears to be the happily ever after pictures of retirees, transplanted northerners and empty-nesters what we see is that these transitions to retirement and aging carry with them a series of potential stressors. Some retired couples in our area reflect earlier traditional marriages between a working husband and a stayat-home wife and mother. Many times these couples struggle to redefine their relationships, to enjoy their increased time together and to develop new interests together or singly. In addition to relationship issues, the growing ranks of baby boomer duos, where both spouses have had careers, can be mourning the loss of a lifestyle with co-workers, goals and achievements that no longer exists. As seniors become more physically frail, more dependent on others for basic needs, or if a spouse passes away, this can present an entirely different set of stresses. Also important to consider is the fact that, since 2008, many seniors have financial worries they never anticipated. Some have concerns their savings will run out and they might have to return to work and wont be able to carry out their retirement dreams. Working through any of these situations alone or in good relationships is tough enough, and the temptation to simply soothe is compelling. We can all picture at least one person we know with the following unhealthy habits: the retired golfer who spends his afternoon drinking in the clubhouse and passes out on the couch every night watching TV; the woman who takes her antidepressants along with white wine at lunch, dinner and bedtime; or the widower who finds solace only in being alone and dulling the pain of loss with a few too many drinks. These scenarios are not benign and can worsen with each passing year. As drinking increases in seniors, it can greatly interfere with prescription medications, impair already slowing reflexes and cognitive abilities, and affect the ability to drive and remember. In fact, using alcohol to soothe can become very dangerous, if not deadly. The first step to helping a soothing senior you know is to talk to them. As a concerned spouse, neighbor, friend, clergy or family member, you can help them by offering advice and suggesting they seek help. Help can come in many forms, such as seeing a mental health professional, attending an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting or joining a support group. Taking one of these brave first steps can help someone regain control of their life, give them hope and help them find happiness so they can achieve whats possible. For those seniors who need help with the harmful affects of self-soothing, the David Lawrence Center can help. Our comprehensive, compassionate and innovative services create an environment where people are inspired and empowered toward life-changing wellness. This month we are offering free anonymous alcohol screenings where you can talk privately with a mental health professional and receive information about local resources. Those who need further evaluation will receive treatment referrals and recommendations. Free alcohol screenings are available by appointment at our satellite office at 2806 S. Horseshoe Drive in Naples. You must mention this special offer when you call 455-8500, ext. 2209, to schedule the screening. David Schimmel is CEO of the nonprofit David Lawrence Center, a comprehensive mental health and substance abuse treatment facility serving children, adults, families and seniors in Collier County.

Major donors help make a major difference at NCHNCH owes its success to many people, and last week we thanked some of the most exceptional. Specifically, we celebrated with 150 of the 800 members in our donor community. These donors made a gift of $1,000 or more in 2011 and have over the years supported NCH with more than $70.6 million in contributions. Here are just a few: Fred and Helen Shick have helped the NCH cardiac surgery unit rank among the top 10 percent in the nation. Ray and Peggy Pettit recognized the surgeons and medical staff of our cardiac team by donating and naming the waiting area of the Naples Heart Institute located in the Briggs Wellness Center. Patricia and Russell Fleischman initially helped redo the psychiatric unit years ago. This past year, they made an additional gift for our cardiac diagnostic center. Stephen and Lety Schwartzs Brookdale Center of Healthy Aging and Rehabilitation was reborn at the North Naples Campus in a holistic and bucolic setting that promotes wellness and healing. The Brookdale Foundation has dominated geriatric research and education for decades in New York and now in Naples. Jackie Bearse was the force behind our 2011 Magnolia Ball, which will provide the funds to completely remodel the North Naples Outpatient Infusion Center. Eleven years ago, Suzanne and Bob Chute founded the Magnolia Ball, which has gone on to raise more than $6 million to provide state-of-the-art treatment and caring support for Naples cancer patients and their families. Audrey Petersens generosity enabled us to launch the Smart Rooms project on the fifth and sixth floors of the Baker Tower at the North Naples Campus. The hospital ball also contributed to these new rooms, where all medical components integrate wirelessly and seamlessly with each other and the electronic medical record. Finally, all 1,190 of our NCH volunteers contribute every day to create an open and welcoming culture for patients and families, from the moment they enter through our doors to the time they get back into their car to return home. Our volunteers range from teenagers to age 97, and each of them is fulfilling a life-long desire to help others. NCH depends greatly on community support to realize its quality goals. As Chief Development Officer Jim Martin notes in the annual report: Great accomplishments in any given year for nonprofit organizations such as NCH require a proper melding of dreams, needs and ideas. The truly successful live, but not just for themselves; give, but not just to themselves. Our donors are such selfless people. They have enhanced our ability to care for all in our community, and we are eternally grateful for their role and inspiration.

Both dogs survived and will recover fully, but the pain was significant and so was the cost of treatment. Fortunately, most snakes arent all that interested in biting; they prefer to hide or skedaddle when faced with a threat. If they cant escape, theyll bite. Thats when dogs typically get bitten: They put their noses where they dont belong, and instead of letting a snake slither away, they bother the reptile until it strikes. Dr. Tony Johnson, a veterinarian specializing in emergency and critical care, spent part of his career practicing in the dry, brushy foothills of Northern California prime rattlesnake country. In his experience, terriers tended to be bitten more often than other dogs. Its almost always dogs and its almost always terriers, he said. Cats tend to be more cautious than dogs, and a terrier is more likely to put his nose where it will get him into trouble than many other dogs. And they dont learn from the experience. What can you do to protect your dog? Here are some tips: Keep your dog on leash if at all possible. While thats not possible for working dogs such as search-andrescue or hunting dogs, its likely the safest strategy for all others. Work with your dog to ensure he comes when called, so that if you hear or see a snake, you can get your dog away and allow the snake room and time to escape. Stay on established trails instead of hiking through areas where snakes can hide. Dont allow your dog to burrow or otherwise try to tangle with wildlife. If hes looking for trouble, he may find it. Consider snake-proofing. Many hunters take their dogs through clinics where professional trainers expose the animals to caged snakes and use electronic shock to establish a negative association. The clinics are controversial, however, because of the use of pain in teaching dogs to fear the reptiles. Balancing risk vs. benefit is an owners judgment call. Signs of a bite include puncture wounds from the fangs of the snake, bruising, blood and a rapid swelling as well as severe pain. If you suspect your dog may have been bitten, end your outing and immediately get to a veterinarian and call ahead, if at all possible, so the veterinary team can prepare. Your pet will need emergency veterinary care to address both the immediate dangers of swelling and pain as well as the longer-term challenges, such as dead tissue and infection. Most dogs survive a bite, especially with prompt veterinary care. Theres nothing you can do in the field to help your dog, said Dr. Johnson, certainly not cutting the wound or sucking the venom out. Just get to the vet. Its worth asking your veterinarian about vaccines that protect dogs from the venom of some snakes. But really, if youre going to be hiking with your dog in areas that are perfect habitats for snakes, youll need luck as well as precaution. And, as always, know where to find a veterinarian when you have to, quickly. PET TALESDeadly dangerWhen snakes become active, its time to protect your dog Stay out of tall vegetation and keep your dog on leash to minimize the risk of a snakebite. To adopt or foster a petDogs and cats adopted from Humane Society Naples come with vaccinations, sterilization surgery, ID microchip and 30 days of health insurance. Visit the animals ready for adoption at the main shelter at 370 Airport-Pulling Road N.

Kahlil Gibran MUSINGSThoughtful Rx email@example.com You asked me if I am learning how to talk to you. Am I? Am I learning what you teach me? Reflecting what you are? Or am I hovering in a safe room? Or is it a dungeon? Or am I just reflecting, thinking, thinking, out and loud. I watched this little fort being built on the stage set by the actors themselves, and I thought this to be rather odd. Perhaps a new form of apprentice instruction? That was all going on in the space around us as we spoke, walking through the chaos of the set. Was it I who showed you a portfolio? Or was it to one of the other actors that you said: I woke up taking photos of Shakespearean plays. Well, I woke up hearing the sound of an animal dying outside was it being attacked? and realizing that it was the sound of my own breathing that I heard. I said I like it here. I meant thank you for helping me to escape. I said: Right? I meant: I see your visual cue indicating that you have found my telling in your experience. Teach in the language of the student: That seems to be an unnecessary caveat. But what if you are an alien, and every language is merely your second, learned as an apprentice on a stage set with no delineation of audience, on stage, or back stage. Its a process, I said. I meant: It is only staged, stages that shift every night via hands anonymous and many. Ive got to hand it to you. Hand feed it. Over and over, incalculable repetition. Stressful and amazing. Hawk and mole. I have nothing better to do. Theres always room for jello. Or, Duh, hell low oh. Space: the last frontier. Each feeding hand has nailed digits, many. With little moons growing out of beds of nails. (Sleep on that.) Or do you say quick? Oh, we have to go back to the drawing-bored of basic nail anatomy: The lunula is the visible part of the matrix which produces the cells that become the nail plate. This plate is what is in common sense parlance referred to as the nail. But who can know the reference for sure? And the nail plate is merely several layers of dead flattened cells. How can you trust such things? Is a nail an able bodied part? But isnt a nail equal to 1/16 of a yard? Is that a prison yard? And what happens when the prisoner is released? Has he been repogrammed? Or taught some new skill? Will he function? Forget the definition: Lets look at the function. Lets not put all our nails in one basket. After all, the nail has three count them; list them functions: It protects the distal phalanx; it is a tool; during touch behavior it provides a counterforce that enhances sensitivity to create more skillful manipulation and/or more tactile data.

B5 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE LOCAL BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE INDUSTRIES BSECTIONWEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 Renting instead of buying a home might be the preferred or only option for some, the credit-worthy included. Investors who can pay in cash are snatching up single-family homes at the best prices, leaving some people renting for longer periods even after they qualify for a home loan. Banks have tougher credit requirements for home loans than in the past. And whats more, there is a growing segment of Southwest Floridians who used to be homeowners but have been forced into renting after the housing crisis hurt them financially. Those are all reasons why the annual residential rental market is absorbing an increase in tenants, say Southwest Florida real estate professionals. That tips the supply and demand equation in favor of landlords, giving them an edge when it comes to leasing arrangements such as pricing, especially in more desirable central areas or near waterfronts, explains Fort Myers-based realtor and newspaper columnist Denny Grimes.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 We are a direct lender offering the following loan products: Making dreams come true... SW Floridas Fastest Growing Mortgage Bank! For all those who think that the recent years economic news is discordant and incomprehensible, do not be discouraged. You are not alone in your thinking. Many finance professionals with years of experience at some of the most successful financial firms and educations from the finest schools are also befuddled. They might not tell you that a sound bite of I dont know does not make good cable news interviews and is not beneficial for self-promoting experts. Fundamental analysts have a particular challenge. In their world, fundamental data must be mastered in order to make investment decisions. This allows them to tell you, an investor, what you should do do X and Y and Z for reasons A and B and C. Such an approach is different from the adviser, who admits that what is known with certainty is very little and it is the investment unknowns that loom large in our current world economic environment. Generally, this type of advisers counsel will focus on portfolio allocation (i.e. the percentages allocated to traditional and alternative investment assets) as well as best of breed selection within the asset class. Chasing performance, rushing into a big name managers fund and/or forecasting the future are discouraged. Truth is, fundamental analysis was once a much easier thing to do. Once upon several decades ago, the players dominating the economic field were limited to the big three: the U.S., Japan and Germany. They were the big GDP producers and they had the big, strong governments. Economic recoveries came from fine-tuning variables in tried and true economic formulas. What also made the economic equations simple was that much of the growth for each of these countries came from the U.S. consumer. Yes, the U.S. realized easy GDP growth through the American consumer for many years while Germany and Japan had heavy exports to the U.S. consumer too. For those needing statistics to affirm this generality, consider the GDP in 1981. Keep in mind that Gross Domestic Product = Consumption plus Business Investment plus Government Spending plus Net Exports. Back in the early s, consumption made up just above 60 percent of the economy; now its more than 70 percent. A 10 percent increase in the share of an economic pie is a big deal a 10 percent increase in a pie that grew from $3.1 trillion in 1981 to $15 trillion (2011 estimated GDP) is a huge opportunity. So, how complicated was the world when the engine behind the growth was one entity with an insatiable demand for durables, non-durables and whimsicals? How difficult was it understanding the world when the critical players were just those three countries? How hard was it to spur growth when rates could be lowered and debt incurred? Sea changes that have happened in the past 30 years make any fundamental understanding and prognostications incredibly difficult. The big three countries have been replaced by the big seven: Brazil, Russia, India and China (known as the BRICs) are part and parcel of every major economic discussion. In fact, they have their own summits, excluding the big three. The BRICs growth rates and needs for resources put them into their own elite economic class. The new consumption discussion centers on the BRIC middle class and their consumption trends and needs. The U.S. consumer might (just might) be tapped out. Its hard to find dollars to buy more stuff when home equity loans are not there and the psychological lift from an appreciating home value is not present and real incomes are not rising. Fiscal policy has now been replaced by Central Bank governance as the critical element for each countrys GDP growth. Thats especially true for the Big Three, but increasingly important in all the countries. It is well acknowledged that the Fed Chairman Ben Bernankes actions, important in their own right, took on critical status as the U.S. Congress has become ineffectual in leading. And any way out of deflation for the Japanese will certainly entail their central bank. Beyond their importance, these central banks are really not beholden to anyone. They do what they want, when they want and how they want and in the size that they want, which is in the trillions. The ability of the U.S., Germany and Japan to issue sovereign debt was never a remote question some 30 years ago. We have now evolved to a world where credit worthiness is questioned, for the U.S. and Japan individually and for Germany via its role in the EU. The list of reasons why the world is so incredibly complex is much longer than the few mentioned. If you are waiting for things to become simple or for an epiphany if understanding, well, pull out the rocking chair and get comfortable as it might be a long time in coming. What to do in times of great uncertainty? You can freeze; you can make a major asset class bet; or you can make sure that you have the right portfolio allocations to traditional asset classes of bonds and equities and that you have sources of income and capital gain from alternative asset classes, particularly those which are not correlated to the equity or bond market. Consult your adviser, seek the counsel of several advisers and make sure that with areas outside of traditional asset investing that you seek counsel of specialist.

The tenant needs to understand theres more competition now. On the other hand, Lee Leatherwood, rental department manager for Premier Sothebys International Realty in Naples, notes that a higher rental price doesnt necessarily mean better tenants. Tenants are savvy about comparing prices, she said, adding that if a landlord raises the rent and a tenant moves out, it may not be worth the lost month or so in rent theyll probably have to absorb. Rather than raising rent, some are decreasing to keep a tenant rather than have one vacant month and lose the increase.A rental managers typical clients Cindy Smith moved from Atlanta to Charlotte County to sell houses shortly before the housing bust. But since the builder whod hired her left town, she has turned to a growing niche market: renting out and managing properties for home or condo owners. And business is booming, says Ms. Smith, a broker associate and rental division manager with Keller Williams Realty Peace River Partners. Her prices range from around $700 and up for annual leases. On the higher end is a spacious three-bedroom house with a pool in Charlotte Countys Deep Creek neighborhood at $1,300 per month. People who own the homes she rents out, her clients, are often straight investors, as Ms. Smith described them. They plan to sell when prices go higher. Other clienthomeowners include younger baby boomers that decided to buy a retirement home while prices are low. They plan to rent it out for, say, five or ten years, as they ease away from their professional working lives. Then there are the tenants. Professional people scoping out the lay of the land make up a good portion. But Ms. Smith estimates the largest group of them lost a home for any number of reasons, including divorce, death, foreclosures, and shortsales, not necessarily in that order. Theyre starting over, she said. Theyve transferred here or live here and they need a place to live while they rebuild their life and credit. Id say maybe 50 percent of my people. Pretty sad. People lose their homes and then theyve had to go out and rent. Renters also include single people who arent ready to settle down, suggests Ms. Leatherwood of Premier Sothebys in Naples. And the American Dream of homeownership itself may appear less bright to some after the dramatic drop in home values during the Great Recession. The apartment occupancy rate in the Fort MyersNaples area climbed roughly 15 percentage points in the last four years, from about 78 percent in January 2008 to 94.2 percent in March 2012, says ALN Apartment Data, which tracks markets in the Southern United States. We do have a thriving business for annual rentals which in any area is the working force, Ms. Leatherwood said. But she has also observed younger people settling down and buying homes later in life than they used to in the past. It seems like homeownership isnt as burning a desire in the 20-somethings, she said. Now its the 30-somethings With the housing market still in a shambles everybody says its not but it is people are still very much uncertain. That does create a steady base for rentals.Investors flock to buy homesThe low home prices and increased demand for rental space has attracted investors who can pay in cash, Southwest Florida Realtors say. And at todays lower prices, their profit margin on rent is higher. At lot of owners thought if they were spending more on the house it was worth more in rent, said Ms. Leatherwood, who explained rent prices are driven more by employment and average wages. And thats not the case. Realtors have sold homes to investors in places such as Port Charlotte, Cape Coral or Lehigh Acres, where lowpriced deals abounded after the housing crisis left many so-called toxic properties without people living in them. (Investors) might be buying one or two or in some cases five or 10, properties like that, said Jim Quinn, an investment specialist and operating principle with Keller Williams Realty Peace River Partners. They might be $40,000, $50,000, $60,000. And then they can turn around and rent them out for $500 per month. For a while, that may have created a glut of inventory in the residential rental market. But now, even in those areas that are more challenging to fill rental space, the market is at the worst, stable, said Mr. Grimes. Last year was the third best year weve had ever in the number of homes being sold, he said. So homes are selling extremely well but rentals are hot right now because there is a growing segment of folks who are in a financial pickle (because of a short-sale, foreclosure, or other issues) and they dont have the credit to buy a home, but are not leaving the area. So that makes them tenants. Two sides of a marketJamie North has been in the real estate business for more than 20 years. Now hes also an associate in a new rental management business, the Collier County-based Osprey Realty Services, which he described as a burgeoning company that was licensed only in the last few weeks and is in the process of gaining clients. At the same time, Mr. North is a local broker-manager for another company, so he works directly with many sides of the current residential real-estate market. That includes, for example, people who are looking to buy a home for themselves or their family, and also investors who purchase them to make a profit. I see both sides, he said. Mr. North described the frustrations the current market has created for one of his clients: a professional who lives on Marco Island. The client wants to buy a home to live in, is approved for a loan, and has enough savings to put 20 percent down. Even so, hes still a tenant because investors who can pay in cash have won bids numerous times. Ive probably put nine or 10 offers in for this guy, Mr. North said. Heres a guy whos loanworthy, excellent credit, trying to buy something for around $200,000 in North Naples. It sounds easy but its not. He keeps getting bid out on the bidding process because cash rules. On the other hand, Mr. North helps investors find properties they may want to rent out. A single-family home rented annually is more profitable than ever before, he says, even if the owner has a mortgage. I dont remember a time when someone could buy a home, 20 or 25 percent down, and actually have the rent pay for the loan, property taxes and leave a little left over for positive cash flow. For instance, Mr. North said Osprey Realty Services manages a house in Naples Brookside neighborhood that was a foreclosure. An investor bought it for roughly $90,000, and Osprey is renting it out at $1,050 per month for its client. Thats really nice cash flow, Mr. North said.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 THE MOTLEY FOOL Fishers 15 PointsEarlier this year, we reviewed the investment philosophy of Philip Fisher, one of the worlds best investment thinkers. Here are eight of his famous Fifteen Points to Look For in a Common Stock from his classic book, Common Stocks, Uncommon Profits (Wiley, $22). They can help you identify well-managed companies with excellent prospects. (1) Does the company have products or services with sufficient market potential to make possible a sizable increase in sales for at least several years? (2) Does the management have a determination to continue to develop products or processes that will still further increase total sales potentials when the growth potentials of currently attractive product lines have largely been exploited? Great companies keep innovating. (5) Does the company have a worthwhile profit margin? Some companies make big bucks despite small margins via great sales volume. But in general, the bigger the profit margins, the better. And 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. The Big IndexQWhats the S&P 500? C.B., Lima, OhioAIts an index of 500 of Americas biggest companies, selected by the folks at Standard & Poors. Though the U.S. stock market encompasses thousands of companies, these 500 together make up more than 75 percent of the markets total value. The companies mostly have market capitalizations of at least $4 billion, and include names such as 3M, Alcoa, Best Buy, Boeing, Caterpillar, Corning, Dell, Estee Lauder, FedEx, Ford, Gap, Goldman Sachs, Harley-Davidson, Hasbro, International Paper, Kellogg, Kroger, McDonalds, Oracle, PepsiCo, Schwab, Southwest Airlines, Target, Visa, Whirlpool, Whole Foods Market and Xerox. Companies removed from the index in the past few years include RadioShack and Eastman Kodak, while those added include Chipotle Mexican Grill, Netflix, Dollar Tree and priceline.com. You can invest in the S&P 500 easily via an index fund such as the low-cost Vanguard 500 Index. Learn more at fool.com/mutualfunds/mutualfunds. htm.QHow can a stock get diluted? G.S., Kinston, N.C.AStock dilution happens when a company issues additional shares of its stock (via a secondary offering), which decreases the value of existing shares. Imagine that you own one of a pizzas eight slices. If the pizza is cut into 10 pieces instead, youll own a tenth instead of an eighth. Your ownership share has shrunk. Additional shares arent necessarily bad. Sometimes shares are issued to raise money used to generate additional sales and earnings perhaps by acquiring another company. If so, then economic dilution might not occur. Some new shares do destroy company value, though. This can happen, for example, if shares are used to finance a merger that fails to meet expectations, or to overpay a CEO who hasnt helped the company grow and prosper. Got a question for the Fool?

Ask the Fool Fools School My Smartest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & Enrichideally, they should be growing.(7) Does the company have outstanding labor and personnel relations? Its a plus for a company to have happy employees.(8) Does the company have outstanding executive relations? Among other things, executive compensation should be within industry norms. (11) Are there other aspects of the business, somewhat peculiar to the industry involved, which will give the investor important clues as to how outstanding the company may be in relation to its competition? Understanding a companys industry will help you see which companies are best positioned to succeed. (12) Does the company have a shortrange or long-range outlook in regard to profits? Its the long run that matters most. Look for big goals and smart strategies. (14) Does the management talk freely to investors about its affairs when things are going well but clam up when troubles or disappointments occur? Annual CEO letters to shareholders can give you a sense of management candor. Its better to see recognition of risks and mistakes than whitewashing and blaming. Above all, seek management integrity. Bad OptionsI invested money in an option recommending service and actually almost broke even. I became suspicious that its recommendations were being sold too aggressively after a couple of small wins, so I stopped following any more advice. I recently heard from a government fraud department that the companys principals were being charged with just that: fraud.

While most respondents were quite satisfied with their experiences, the survey also revealed even some of the high-rated chains gave plenty of shoppers something to complain about. One-third of subscribers surveyed said they had given the heave-ho to a nearby grocery store. Forty-three percent changed their grocer in search of lower prices; about 25 percent cited poor selection, long lines, or lousy food; 17 percent blamed employee rudeness; 14 percent, the crowds. Of the 24,203 readers who told Consumer Reports about 42,695 supermarket experiences, more than half had at least one complaint about their current store; almost a third cited two or more. The biggest gripe overall: Not enough open checkouts (cited by 27 percent of shoppers), followed by congested or cluttered aisles and advertised specials that were out of stock. Other irritants included inept bagging, missing prices, and scanner overcharges. No chains tried their customers patience more than Walmart Supercenter, Pathmark (Northeast) and Pick n Save (Wisconsin), where roughly threefourths of shoppers had one or more problems. Shoppers who frequented Walmart, the nations largest grocer and the chain with the most shoppers in the survey, were most likely to be miffed about the lack of open checkouts, out-of-stock regular items, indifferent employees, spotty pricing and confusing store layout. Fortunately, most consumers have several shopping choices, and some supermarkets gave customers much of what they want. National grocers Costco and Trader Joes, along with Publix and Wegmans, offer quality meat and produce, a clean shopping environment, and very good or exceptional prices. All but Costco also earned the highest possible marks for service, defined as employee courtesy and checkout speed. Service is minimal at warehouse clubs such as Costco, and lengthy lines are a trade-off for day-in, day-out deals.

Lois Davies was recommended to me by a trusted friend in the Fort Myers area. Lois was personable, prompt, knowledgeable and thorough in all our dealings. I was particularly impressed with her willingness to go the extra mile to get me the information I needed to make informed decisions. Even after I bought a house, Lois continued to facilitate important details to ensure the deal closed and she saved me a great deal of time and aggravation. Lois knows her business and I would not hesitate to recommend her to a friend. Mark C Canada It is not often that a Realtor recommends another local Realtor, with that in mind... Andrea Quilter provides professional, courteous service to her clients. She is honest, trustworthy and detail oriented. When I am unavailable to service my clients, I know that I can count on Andrea to treat them with the same respect and knowledge of their particular real estate needs as I would. You are one in a million, Andrea. Thank you for being someone that I can rely on. Connie J. The Danberry Co., Realtors Dont Take Our Word For It, Read What Our Clients Have To Say Dear Mr. Interbartolo: Recently my husband and I had the good fortune to work with one of your Realtors, Joan Bronston. We cannot begin to than Joan enough for her time, patience and care, as we completed the final steps of purchasing a home. Her expertise and guidance have been invaluable to us and we do appreciate Joan's hard work and diligence in locating the right house for us. If we every have the opportunity to recommend a real estate company in the area, rest assured that it will be Century 21 Birchwood. Sincerely, S. V. & S. W. To Whom It May Concern: This note is regarding Steve Chesser and how much we appreciated the time he spent working with and for us. During the past week we've toured many of the available lots on canals. We kept notes on those that we are considering and after the pressures of our return North, we will be in touch with you regarding the purchase. We think Steve deserves a special thanks for all he did for us. Be back this Summer. The Weisemans

Construction is slated for completion in early 2013. Architects on the project are Bob Heilman of Heilman Architecture in association with Chris Brown of Brown Planning-Landscape Architecture. The construction firm is Henning Construction. The Ronto Groups vision for TwinEagles is of a golfing community that reflects the heritage and tradition of the birthplace of the game of golf the famed St. Andrews in Scotland. The existing TwinEagles Country Club clubhouse pays homage to Scotlands famous Highland manors in its design, and the new facilities will mirror this design. TwinEagles members enjoy two 18-hole Championship golf courses: Talon Golf Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus and son, Jack Nicklaus II; and the Eagle Golf Course, designed by Steve Smyers. Ten models by six of eight preferred builders are open for viewing at TwinEagles, with a wide selection of floor plans and prices that range from the mid-$200,000s to more than $2 million. Membership in the TwinEagles Golf Club is included in the purchase price of every new home. The entrance to TwinEagles is at 11330 TwinEagles Blvd., Naples. The sales center is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. MondaySaturday and from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call 352-8000 or visit www.twineagles.com.

The country suffers from poverty, drought and an HIV/ AIDS epidemic. Yet it is from this challenging backdrop that dozens of artists found inspiration to create the more than 100 stone sculptures on exhibit at the Naples Botanical Garden through April 21. As they wander Garden paths, visitors see the sculptures nestled among wildflowers and palm trees and even perched in a pond. The traveling ZimSculpt exhibit, which was in Vancouver, B.C., before making its Florida debut at the Garden, supports more than 100 artists SEE ZIMSCULPT, C4 Internationally renowned jazz pianist David Pringle brings his trio to Sugden Regional Park for the final Jazz in the Park concert presented by Bayshore Cultural and Performing Arts Center from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, April 15. The concert is free and open to the public. The Scottish-born Mr. Pringle is considered one of the most successful composers, musical directors and arrangers for television and in the recording industry in Great Britain. He served as music director for Oscar Peterson in Jazz at the Gateway, a 16-part television series and winner of the gold medal at the New York International Film and TV Festival. He has performed as piano soloist and conductor on 10 commercial CDs, including Through Scotland in Song, Only Trust Your Heart and Seascape. Other members of the David Pringle Trio are drummer James Martin and vocalist/bass player Vince Evans. The Atlanta-born Mr. Martin, a selftaught musician, started playing drums when he was 15 and performed with rockers including Major Lance and Billy Joe Royal before discovering his true passion: jazz. In the 1970s, he played throughout Atlanta and the Southeast with notables such as Clark Terry, Barney Kessel, Herb Ellis, Charlie Byrd, Mose Allison and Marian McPartland. He toured and recorded in Italy and the David Pringle Trio wraps up Jazz in the Park series COURTESY PHOTODavid PringleSEE JAZZ, C9 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________
I have one rule for the man Im dating. Actually, I have a lot of rules. But one of the most important is that he must never, ever see me getting ready. Im talking about when I get ready in the morning, when I get ready for a Saturday night out, when I get ready to run to Publix. No watching me get ready, period. The truth is a lot of work goes into looking good. For many women that means eyeshadow, eyeliner, blush, lip tint, lip gloss, lip stain, bronzer, concealer, foundation, translucent powder; and hair products detangler, volumizer, mouse. Not to mention a blow dryer and a diffuser, curling iron if youve got the time. Then there are the clothes. The underthings, the layering T-shirts, the jackets and jewelry and shoes. And the agonizing: This one? Or this one? The self-doubt and insecurity even as we step out the door. All that to show up for a date looking effortlessly put together. I want the man who courts me to think my private face is the same as my public face, that how I look when we meet for dinner is how I looked when I got out of bed that morning. Im afraid if he witnesses the process, our relationship will lose its magic. Like a visit to the sausage factory, once you know what goes into the making you can never enjoy it again. In order not to spoil the romance, some things are best kept hidden. As it turns out, women arent the only ones with a best-kept-hidden side. This week I had dinner with two male friends, a visit to a different sort of sausage factory. These are men who are perpetually on the prowl, the kind of guys who cant make eye contact over drinks because theyre looking over my shoulder to scout the bar for beautiful women. When Im with them, I feel less like a lady and more like a dude. So, I met this girl last night, Mitch said over his club sandwich. Is today too soon to call her? Greg cut the air with a sweet potato fry. Too soon, he said. You need to give it a week. What ever happened to the woman from your class? I asked Greg. He shrugged one shoulder and took a sip of his Mountain Dew. Shes a ho. Dont say that, I said. No, she was a ho, Mitch agreed. Like that other one what was her name? What followed was a play-by-play of their recent female conquests. They compared notes and talked about the best parts of a woman (personality did not make the list). Where were the sweet, romantic guys I thought I knew? I ate my burger in silence and occasionally shook my head. Maybe its best for all of us, I thought, not to know too much about the private workings of the opposite sex. Better to be ignorant of what really goes on inside the factory; we can only be disappointed if we peer into the vat.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 who work by hand with cobalt stone, lapidolite, leopard rock, opal stone, serpentine and springstone. One or two artists travel throughout the year with curator Vivienne Croisette to demonstrate their skill and chat with visitors at exhibit sites, while others check in with Ms. Croisette daily to see if their pieces have sold. The money is desperately needed. It makes me proud that all of these artists Ive worked with for 12 years are doing well and their families are growing, Ms. Croisette says. An artist traveling with the show can earn enough to buy a house and car when they return to Zimbabwe if they are careful with their money. Ms. Croisette shares that one artist spent everything before he returned home, while another, against her recommendation, converted his money from U.S. dollars to Zimbabwean dollars, a volatile and least valued currency, and lost much of what he earned. Prices for ZimSculpt pieces range from $1,000 to $17,000; a temporary gift shop set up in a tent at the Garden sells Zimbabwean arts and crafts at more modest prices.Seeing inside the stoneSculptor Patrick Sephani has traveled with ZimSculpt for five years and has been at the Garden seven days a week since the exhibit opened there in midFebruary. He finally saw the Naples beach two weeks ago, he says. Back in Zimbabwe, Mr. Sephani owns a house and a truck and a small commuter bus business. He says his wife understands why he travels so much and that he talks to her every few days (hed like to use Skype to save money, he says, but Zimbabwe doesnt have that service). As a young boy, he polished small sculptures for famous artists. He later became an apprentice and eventually found his own voice as a sculptor. His work reflects the environment where he grew up, which he describes as mostly the work being done by women in the community, because men went to work in industrial areas. ZimSculpt artists receive the stones they work with in their natural forms, not in blocks, which Mr. Sephani says lets the material speak to him. Sometimes, you can see something within that piece of stone. Ms. Croisette says she is pleased with the amount of sales the Garden exhibit has had, though she notes that African-themed pieces have not sold as well as figurative and abstract designs. Garden board member and former board chair Linda White bought a small, carved elephant for a friend who loves African art. I think its wonderful, she says about the exhibit, citing the fish sculpture placed in the middle of the pool and a stacked bird sculpture as her favorites. Brian Holley, the Gardens executive director, says the exhibit has exceeded his expectations, with many of the sculptures fitting naturally in the landscape. People think the sculptures bring the Gardens alive and want to know if any will stay here permanently, he says, adding that he hopes a supporter will purchase one for this purpose. And, everybody loves the interactions with Patrick (Mr. Sephani). The Garden receives 10 percent of the ZimSculpt sales, which at press time were $325,000. ZimSculpt also donates 5 percent to a charity that helps disadvantaged Zimbabweans and Mozambicans on issues such as child welfare, environment and sanitation and health. Mr. Holley would like to have ZimSculpt return next year and build on the positive word-of-mouth promotion as more people become familiar with the South African art. The first year, people are not sure what to expect and buy a little something to support the exhibition and the Garden, which brought in a world-class international art show, Ms. Croisette explains. People enjoy their sculpture throughout the year and think that maybe next year theyll buy something a little bit bigger. The Zimbabwean stone sculpture movement began about 60 years ago, but it is rooted in ancient tradition. Frank McEwen, the first director of the National Gallery of Zimbabwe and former curator at Muse Rodin in Paris, brought the contemporary Zimbabwean sculptures to light, and they were quickly embraced by the western art scene. Zimbabwe is now known to be the home of some of the top sculptors in the world. One theory states that the word Zimbabwe translates as Great Stone House in the Shona language. When the Naples Botanical Garden exhibit ends, Mr. Sephani and Ms. Croisette will return to Zimbabwe for a few months before traveling to Canada to install ZimSculpt at the Royal Botanical Garden in Burlington, Ontario, where it will be on display Aug. 25-Oct. 8.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 THEATER REVIEWIts style over substance in Florida Reps Black Tie nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Milestones in our lives graduations, weddings, births are fraught with emotion. Theyre a time of celebrating and taking stock. Theyre also a time when we think of close friends and family who have died, of those who arent here to share these special moments. On the eve of his sons wedding, Curtis (Peter Thomasson) is dressing for the rehearsal dinner when he sees his own dead father in the mirror. The man then enters the room. Is he a ghost? Or is Curtis interacting with his memories of his dad? The play never tells us, and its up to us to decide. And so begins Black Tie at Florida Repertory Theatre. Father (John Felix), dressed to the nines in a tuxedo (he insists the proper term is evening wear), exudes privilege and entitlement more than a sense of other-worldliness. Though he passed on to the next life a while ago, apparently hes still very tied to this one, concerned about appearances and doing what is proper. Mr. Felix plays the role of Father well; hes so snobby its as if hes stepped out of a Masterpiece Theatre series about the British upper class. Curtis instantly reverts to his childhood self whenever Father is around; Mr. Thomasson plays boyish very well. Sometimes its painful to watch, the way he still acquiesces to his father and is so naked in his desire to please him. Father is the only character in the play not given a name; hes referred to as Father in the program and in the play. And, as some fathers are prone to do, he gives advice, mostly unsolicited, and cant help quoting poetry and dropping little bits of information. Playwright A.R. Gurney is known for his plays about the foibles of upper-class WASPs, especially those living in New York City and upstate. Florida Rep has put on some of his other plays, including the popular Sylvia, in which a woman plays the role of a dog, and Indian Blood, a moving and funny holiday play in which a boy is suspended from school for drawing a suggestive picture. Other well-known works by Mr. Gurney include Love Letters and The Dining Room. Black Tie fails to engage the way those other plays do. It drags, and on opening night there were long stretches where there werent any laughs at all. To my dismay, I found my attention lagging. I so wanted to like this play, but the plot seems to make a big deal over little things its much ado about nothing. Yes, people involved in the wedding will get upset over place cards being switched around or some attendees insisting on vegetarian meals at the last minute, but those problems really dont make for high drama. Mr. Gurney also drops bombshells throughout the play regarding certain characters race, ethnicity and homosexuality, but these are also shrug worthy. Of course, if youre white, conservative, Republican and bigoted, like Father, youll be appalled by these things. But his grandchildren just wonder whats the big deal? and many in the audience react the same way. Of course, its fun to see how these things affect Father, whos snobbish and sees himself as superior, but these moments of humor are too few and come too late in the play. Black Tie is one of Mr. Gurneys more recent works; it played off-Broadway last year. But it seems more of a trifle than a fully formed play. Director Chris Clavelli does his best with it. The actors performances are all top-notch, but theyre struggling to make something out of the material. I wish Mr. Clavelli had worked on the pacing a little more so the play didnt seem to drag. Carrie Lund plays Curtiss wife, Mimi. When she walks on, she brings some much-needed fresh energy to the stage. Shes also a good foil for her husband and her deceased father-in-law. Ms. Lund just has a knack for delivering comedic lines. (Unfortunately, we cannot repeat one of her best ones of the evening, delivered breezily and quite unexpectedly.) Intern Hallie Wage plays Elsie, their daughter and sister of the groom. Elsie represents the next generation, with different ways of approaching things. I wish at times she were a little more forceful in delivering her lines; her voice can be thin, making some lines difficult to hear. Adam Jones, seen last season in the companys King o the Moon, plays the couples son, Teddy, whos about to get married. Typically (in plays, movies, TV shows) its the bride who has the meltdown, so it was nice to see the tables turned and watch a groom suffer one. Mr. Jones delivers a nice shot in the arm to the play as it winds down and, along with Ms. Lund, provides much of the shows humor. Its obvious he has his own way of doing things, from whom hes marrying to what he wears. Hes not chained to the way his grandfathers generation did things. Costume designer Judith Skyles does a nice job, especially with Ms. Lunds outfits. And Ray Recht has outdone himself with his design of a resort hotel room in the Adirondacks. (Its a destination wedding.) The wood-paneled walls are decorated with stuffed fowl and a pair of snowshoes. And hes given us furniture made out of rough-hewn logs, with tree stumps for side tables, and an antler chandelier. A giant moose head has the place of honor above a stone fireplace. And when the door to the hotel room opens, you can see the tacky wallpaper of the hallway. This is one of those mysterious plays where the acting, costumes and set are all better than the play itself. I confess, I was hoping for more. Black Tie is a case of a major theater putting on a minor play. DACK MAKI / SNAPFLASHPHOTOSeated: Adam Jones and Hallie Wage. Standing: Carrie Lund, John Felix and Peter Thomasson.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 C11 Is it worth $10? NoThis is a reunion you definitely want to skip. From the opening scene of American Reunion, the fourth big-screen installment of the American Pie franchise, you know the creators are drinking from an empty keg. In a too-familiar scene, we once again find Jim (Jason Biggs) trying to masturbate, only to have an uncomfortable interruption: his son. Meanwhile, his wife Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) is in the bathtub masturbating. This is supposed to be so outlandish its funny, but it just feels desperate. Sadly, almost all of American Reunion reeks of desperation. Theres no good earthly reason for this movie, unless the suits at Universal are taking pity on the failing careers of the cast. Thirteen years after graduation, Jim, Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas), Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), Oz (Chris Klein) and Stifler (Seann William Scott) reunite in East Great Falls for their high school reunion. While corporate stooge Jim and househusband Kevin are married, Oz is a famous sportscaster dating a supermodel (Katrina Bowden) and Finch is a world traveler. As for Stifler, hes done nothing. The subplots are limited and redundant: Jim has awkward chats with his dad (Eugene Levy) and fends off a crush from a neighbor named Kara (Ali Cobrin), whom he used to babysit; Kevin considers reuniting with Vicky (Tara Reid); Oz considers reuniting with Heather (Mena Suvari); Finch romances a formerly ugly girl (Dania Ramirez); and Stifler, to no ones surprise, tries to get laid. Its not just that co-writers and directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg have nothing new for these characters to do; its that what we do get is bland and predictable and lasts far longer than it should. For example, Jim gets sidetracked taking care of Kara after she gets drunk. She comes on to him, takes her top off and then passes out in his lap. Ha, ha. He feels obligated to take her home, but enlists the help of the guys to get her upstairs without her parents knowing. This scene plays like Weekend at Bernies but with nice boobs and no, its not nearly as good as it sounds. The lone highlight of that sequence and the entire movie, really is Stifler, whom Seann William Scott once again imbues with a lighthearted crassness that feels like a breath of immature fresh air. Ever the life of the party and not understanding why his friends dont want to go crazy, Stifler has both the most awful and the most awesome things happen to him, and because of Scotts childish likeability, the man-child is always fun to watch. In fairness, this is worth noting: After American Pie came out in 1999, it spawned countless imitators and cheap knockoffs, which diluted the appeal of everything the original did well. So for American Reunion to take shots at the same jokes 13 years later well, it feels old. And more importantly, the mediocrity of middle age is not how we want to remember these guys. LATEST FILMSAmerican Reunion >> After the rst three American movies were released in theaters, culminating in American Wedding in 2003, four more American Pie Presents movies were released straight to video, the last of which was The Book of Love in 2009. h h t k a n danHUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com Wrath of the Titans (Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes) Perseus (Worthington) must rescue his father, Zeus (Neeson), from the capture of Hades (Fiennes) in the underworld. The story is serviceable, but the action and visual effects are top quality. Rated PG-13. 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. CAPSULES
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 The Sarasota Film Festival>> When: April 13-22 >> Where: various Sarasota locations, including Regal Cinemas Hollywood 20, the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and the Sarasota Opera House >> Cost: $12 for most single movie tickets, prices vary >> Information: (941) 366-6200 or (866) 575-FILM >> For a complete listing of Sarasota Film Festival activities, visit www. sarasota lmfestival.com Diversity. Quality. Depth and breadth. These are the hallmarks of the Sarasota Film Festival, now celebrating its 14th year and recognized as one of the largest regional film festivals in the United States. Running from April 13-22, the festival will present its biggest program this year with 235 films, including shorts. It opens with Robot and Frank. Set in the near future, it stars Frank Langella, Susan Sarandon, Liv Tyler and James Marsden. Mr. Langella plays Frank, a former thief whos experiencing some memory problems. So his son provides a robot to help him. Its a feel-good, moving buddy film set in the near future, says festival director Tom Hall. When we saw this film, we walked out of the door and immediately e-mailed everyone connected with the film, saying, We want this film! Please, please, please! We were lucky enough to get Frank Langella (to attend), as well as the director, Jake Schreier, and some of the producers. The red carpet event opens the festival at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall April 13 with the red carpet at 6 p.m., film at 7 p.m., followed with a party at 9 p.m. The venue seats 1,750 people, he notes. And we bring in what we consider to be our most crowd-pleasing, engaging, thought-provoking moving, funny or any combination thereof film for that spot. We kick the festival off on a big, upbeat note, and get people excited bout sampling the rest of the event. Mr. Langella, known for his Broadway and film roles as Dracula and as President Nixon in Frost/Nixon, will speak at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 14, at Sarasota High School. The closing film of the festival is Under African Skies, by director Joe Berlinger, at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 21, at the Sarasota Opera House. The documentary looks at the making of Paul Simons 1986 landmark album, Graceland, which he recorded with a variety of South African musicians. He was accused of violating the cultural boycott against apartheid, Mr. Hall says, but Paul Simon says, I worked with black South African musicians to bring attention to the situation. I was expecting a behind-the-scenes film of Paul Simon making Graceland, but its also this rousing statement about art and politics that I thought was just timely and riveting, but also crowd-pleasing. Mr. Hall saw it at a public screening, and the audience really responded to it, he says. As the closing credits rolled, the audience stood up and clapped in time to the music. Other festival highlights include Ethel, a film about Ethel Kennedy made by her daughter, Rory Kennedy. You think its going to be this glowing, non-critical look at the Kennedys and that era, he says. Its a wonderful, upbeat, funny story. It was everything I didnt expect from a movie about the Kennedys. I didnt know that much about Ethel Kennedy to begin with to me, its a fascinating story. Ethel will screen at 6:45 p.m. Sunday, April 15, and 7:30 p.m. Monday, April 16, at the Regal Hollywood 20. Rory Kennedy will be in attendance. An edgier film is Todd Solondzs Dark Horse, starring Mia Farrow, Christopher Walken, Jordan Gelber and Selma Blair. Itll screen at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 20, at the Sarasota Opera House. This movie is a real risk-taker, Mr. Hall says. Todd is probably the most provocative independent filmmaker of the last 20 years. Thats without question. He provokes an audience into thinking and feeling things theyre not comfortable thinking and feeling. Look at his body of work: Every movie is a challenge to the audience to critique it, think about it (and) engage with it. And this new movie is probably his most accessible. Its pretty dark, but in a comic way. Were excited to show it and to have (Mr. Solondz) here. Hes an iconic director. The festival includes an eclectic variety of feature films and documentaries and different series of live action and animated shorts. This year, in partnership with the Sarasota Ballet, the festival will screen a number of dance-related movies, including First Position, a film about children auditioning for ballet roles; Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance, Trash Dance and Wayne McGregor: Going Somewhere. Theres lots of good stuff; were excited to be showing so many great movies, Mr. Hall says. We hope the audience agrees.

Niko. Medallion Press. 420 pages. $14.95. In her first novel, D.J. Niko establishes Sarah Weston as an appealing character who can easily be carried through the two additional novels already under contract. A fine addition to the growing genre of archaeological thrillers, The Tenth Saint benefits from Ms. Nikos persuasive handling of Sarahs tenacious personality, the remote and exotic Ethiopian setting, conspiracy theories and romance. Somewhat less persuasive is the time travel element, but that, too, remains at least intriguing. Born to wealth and privilege, Cambridge University archaeologist Sarah Weston has long shed any debutante sensibilities she may have had. As she leads her research team in a remote mountain area, the ancient kingdom of Aksum, Sarah faces physical risk and hardship unflinchingly. Unexpectedly, she comes across a sealed tomb and unusual inscriptions. Assisted by American anthropologist Daniel Madigan, she strives to translate the inscriptions and identify the tomb which is somehow connected with the Coptic Christians and their saintly mystics. The clues take them to Addis Ababa, monasteries in Lalibela (a holy city) and an underground library housing a codex that is the key to the mysteries of the past and possibly to those of the future. Ms. Nikos narration alternates between the ongoing present that traces Sarahs hazardous investigation and a remote past (4th century CE) in which an individual at first unidentified and suffering from amnesia is eventually revealed to be the 10th saint of Coptic tradition. A Caucasian westerner named Gabriel, he has somehow turned up all but entombed under desert sands. Discovered and nursed to health by Bedouins, he becomes part of their community, mastering their medicinal lore. After five years, however, it becomes clear that Gabriel must move on to pursue his gradually revealed mission. The messages left behind and echoed by a 14thcentury letter given to Sarah in Paris involve poetic prophecies of an apocalypse brought on by human endeavors. There are references, in particular, not only to climate change, but also to dangerous initiatives to control its consequences. While some would wish the apocalyptic vision revealed, others would wish that it remain hidden. Powerful vested interests, including those of Sarahs father, are at work. What Sarah and Daniel discover brings them many more enemies than friends. Ms. Niko does a fine job of delineating her heroes and villains. Daniel is a great match for Sarah, and also a foil of sorts. The author also manages, in one major case at least, to keep the true nature and allegiance of a key character ambiguous through much of the novel, raising the suspense ante. Her descriptive powers are remarkable. Whether constructing the distant past or today, whether reproducing the foreign or the familiar, Ms. Niko brings vivid, convincing sensory detail to her settings. On occasion, she goes on a bit too long with overwrought evocations of place, slowing the action. But most of the time she gets it right. Im already looking forward to the next installment of The Sarah Weston Chronicles, The Riddle of Solomon, scheduled for a June 2013 release. t t m h philJASONpkjason@comcast.net BOOK REVIEW CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE, C19
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 C19 APRIL 17, 24 & 26 04111212-913FW: What was the genesis of The Tenth Saint? DJN: Ive always been intrigued by prophets and prophecies, particularly the apocalyptic variety. Where did people like John of Patmos or Nostradamus get their foresight? And what if these were more than visions? So, for me, it began with a philosophical question: If we knew these prophecies would come true, how would we change our lives? Would we and could we try to change the course of events to achieve a different outcome? FW: What part of the writing process do you find most enjoyable? Most challenging? DJN: Most enjoyable: losing myself in the story; being totally present without being self-aware. Its meditative, in a way. Most challenging: trying to get something just right while working on deadline. FW: Sarahs need to prove herself is a significant part of her personality. Is there anything of you in this dimension of Sarah? DJN: Not so much now, but I did have that need when I was younger and had to struggle to assimilate in a foreign culture. Like Sarah does in The Tenth Saint, I quickly learned it wasnt necessary to try so hard; just do the right thing, and the rest works itself out. FW: What aspects of your experience as a journalist feed into your work as a fiction writer? DJN: For me, the research process informs both platforms in a big way. Obviously, it is a major component of journalism, but it is critical to writing believable fiction, as well. I thoroughly enjoy getting the facts right, but building a fictional story around them. Its the best of both worlds. Born and raised in Greece, Daphne Nikolopoulos chose the pen name D.J. Niko for her work as a fiction writer. She is an accomplished journalist and editor, presently editor-in-chief at Palm Beach Illustrated and editorial director of the Palm Beach Media Group (which includes Naples Illustrated). She is the also the author of Storm Gourmet: A Guide to Creating Extraordinary Meals Without Electricity, a popular hurricane-readiness guide and cookbook.A conversation with D.J. Niko

Nevertheless, the luck factor cannot be entirely eliminated. For instance, the succession of opponents you meet might or might not play well against you, which certainly will have an important bearing on how you fare. Also, you (or your opponents) might get to excellent contracts that go down because of horrendous distribution, or get to poor contracts that make because of highly favorable distribution. Consider this deal played in the Blue Ribbon Pairs many years ago by Dorothy Hayden Truscott and B. Jay Becker. They reached three notrump on the bidding shown. Mrs. Truscotts three-notrump bid with the singleton king of clubs was certainly imaginative and was amply rewarded when she made the contract after West led a low club. She won Easts queen with the king and ran six diamonds, subjecting West to severe pressure. He followed twice and was able to discard a heart and a spade comfortably, but then, in order to protect his king of spades, he was forced to discard two clubs. Mrs. Truscott next led a heart. West took the ace and cashed three clubs, but that was the end of the line as West was forced to lead from the K-8 of spades at the end. You could call the hand a brilliant success if you were so minded but, all the same, there was a lot of luck attached to it. At another table, against similar bidding, West made the inspired lead of the ace of clubs against three notrump, and East-West collected the first seven tricks to put the contract down three! Fortunately for Mrs. Truscott and Becker, they were sitting at the right table.

Feast on fresh, GULF COAST Black GrouperGrouper Fest!Limited time offer until 4/30/2012LOCATED ON VANDERBILT BEACH RD. JUST WEST OF AIRPORT PULLING RD. Here are some capsule summaries from previous reviews: Caf Lurcat, 494 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 213-3357: Despite its grand scale vaulted ceilings, oversized pendant lamps, sprawling dining areas spilling into the outdoors Caf Lurcat manages to create a sense of warmth with muted colors, light woods and white linens. Its the kind of place where you want to slow down and savor several courses of food and several glasses of wine, though it will come at a price. ($14.50 for a single crab cake? Really?) The menu ranges from simple comfort food (pot roast or roasted chicken and grapes) to more complex creations (pork tenderloin with spiced cherries and couscous with toasted pumpkin seeds). Either way you go, you wont be disappointed. Even side dishes a mlange of English peas, sugarsnap peas and fresh fava beans sauted in b utter f or us will delight. But be sure to save room for the signature cinnamon-sugar doughnuts or fried huckleberry pie. Dessert is not to be missed. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2011 Fernandez the Bull, 1201 Piper Blvd., Naples; 254-9855: This restaurant has thrived for years at its 1265 Airport Road location. Now, with its sleek second location, even more people can enjoy the authentic Cuban cuisine served up by the hospitable Fernandez family and staff. I can recommend the Cuban nachos, an inventive mix of thinly sliced fried plantains, savory chicken, cheese sauce, capers and parsley (plan to share this one); calamari in a well-seasoned tomato sauce with pepper and onions, a refreshing departure from fried calamari; ropa vieja, a classic dish of shredded flank steak in a tomato sauce with peppers and onions; and shrimp and scallops in white wine, garlic and capers. Yuca in creamy garlic sauce, black beans and yellow rice and sweet fried plantains were great sides. For dessert, you cant go wrong with the flan or the tres leches cake. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2010 Gordons on the River, 475 North Road, Naples; 213-1441: Social dining clubs that offer amenities such as themed dinners, wine tastings and special access to facilities are few and far between these days. The novelty alone makes the Naples Harbour Yacht Club worth checking out. Gordons is the upstairs and upscale neighbor to the clubs more casual Jacks River Bar, serving aged steaks, fresh seafood and fine wines. Both the food and the hospitality were noteworthy, but the level of attention we received might have been colored by the fact that we had the dining room completely to ourselves. All the better to take advantage of the sommeliers services (Gordons boasts an impressive wine list). Both seafood and steak dishes were impressively prepared and accompanied by two vegetables a rarity these days, especially at steakhouses. The housemade desserts show some creativity that will tempt you even if youve already had your fill. With or without dining club membership, Gordons puts a fresh and flavorful spin on an old concept. Full bar Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2012 Grouper & Chips, 338 Ninth St. N., Naples; 643-4577: In an older strip plaza across U.S. 41 from NCH Hospital, Grouper & Chips is a self-described small, unpretentious hole-in-the-wall restaurant. It is indeed so small, that you might find yourself rubbing elbows with other parties or waiting an hour for table (reservations are not accepted). Takeout and delivery are options, but then youd miss out on the warm hospitality of the staff. Besides, once you order, food is quickly delivered. The menu is heavy on fried foods, but the conch fritters and grouper did not suffer from greasy excess; the fried shrimp, however, were overwhelmed by batter. You wouldnt expect to find it in a place like this, but the bouillabaisse is loaded with lobster, sea scallops, mussels, shrimp and chunks of grouper and is worth trying. Dessert shooters petite servings of Key lime pie and chocolate mousse are the perfect way to end a meal here. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2011 USS Nemo Undersea Cuisine, 3745 N. Tamiami Trail, Naples; 261-6366: Chef Nicolas Merciers artful way with seafood and just about everything else is impressive. Seafood dominates the menu, but theres also a handful of meat dishes and an adventurous kids menu as well. From the 26-item sake menu we sampled two great selections Wakatake and Hakutsuruda both of which went well with appetizers of goat cheese and tuna tartare and an imaginative seaweed and seafood trilogy, featuring three kinds of seaweed, salmon, sea bass and lobster. Miso broiled sea bass and diver scallops with roasted red pepper and vanilla sauce were expertly prepared and presented. The trinity of profiteroles with Japanese plum, adzuki and ginger ice creams was delightful. Somewhat less successful was the service, which was good until dessert, when the server had to also attend to outdoor tables. Tables are tightly grouped, adding a taste of reality to the submarine theme. Food: Service: Atmosphere:Reviewed January 2010 PAST REPASTS Key to ratings Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C35 You cant see it from the road and, in fact, have to look carefully once youre in the shopping center parking lot to find it. But given that Em-Ons Thai Cafe has been operating year-round since 1996, its obvious that people have figured out where to find this cozy and casual establishment serving wellcrafted Thai fare. Youll find it tucked between Joey Ds Italian restaurant and the Naples Olive Oil Company in the sprawling Greentree Shopping Center. It possesses a simple storefront, like so many of the regions best family-owned restaurants. While not showy, the dining room is inviting and attractive, with soothing peach-colored walls adorned with Thai art, including large pieces of wood with ornate bas-relief carvings of wildlife. Other touches include dragon masks and Thai sculptures. Em-Ons menu isnt vast, but theres plenty from which to choose, including familiar Thai fare such as appetizers like satay and spring rolls; the classic noodle dish, pad Thai; soups, salads, curries and several house specialties. While the wine selection is on the meager side, I think Singha beer, a popular Thai brew thats light and refreshing, is a better match for most dishes anyway. Theres also Chang, another Thai product, and six other beer options. With but two servers working the floor, courses nonetheless flowed smoothly, glasses were kept filled and everyone seemed well attended to throughout our meal. It didnt take long for the food to start arriving. The spring rolls ($4.75) were large and crisp, stuffed with vegetables and just enough pepper to add zip, served with a sweet-tart plum sauce. A variation on the spring roll theme was the po pire tod ($6.95). Three slender rolls came filled with a savory mix of chopped pork, shrimp, onions, scallions and garlic and a side of plum sauce. Although the menu indicated this was a spicy dish, it wasnt really, although it had plenty of flavor. From the house specialties section, we sampled the chicken sizzling platter ($13.99) and ta-laypad-ped ($18.95), a mix of seafood with vegetables and red curry sauce. The seafood dish contained mussels, shrimp, squid and surimi along with red and green bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, fresh basil and sauce. Everything tasted fresh and the basil added life to the sauce, which was a little salty, although the rice diluted its effect. The duckshaped dish was garnished with a carrot carved into a lovely flower, evidence that someone in the kitchen is well versed in traditional Thai knife skills. The chicken platter arrived with a showy sizzle, a lovely and tasty blend of chicken, red and green bell pepper, onions, cashews and cucumber in a coconut milk and yellow curry sauce on a bed of spinach. This was my favorite dish of the meal with its array of colors, textures and flavors. It appears to be a favorite among other diners, too, as I saw the server deliver similarly sizzling platters of it to at least four other tables. While the room was about half full the place seats about 40 on the night of our visit, the kitchen was also doing a brisk business in takeout orders. I cant supply any information on desserts as they arent listed on the menu and our check was presented without an offer of any. That might have been due to the fact that we didnt quite finish our entrees, so perhaps we didnt appear likely candidates for dessert. After appetizers, entrees and rice, we were full anyway, so we didnt bother to inquire. Em-Ons is the kind of place in which you can expect well-executed food without paying dearly for it. Yet another plus is that its ultra-casual, so you can dine well without getting gussied up to do it, something that many of us appreciate after a full day at the office (and those on vacation are apt to find just as appealing after a day on the beach or golf course). food & wine CALENDAR Thursday, April 12, 4-7 p.m., Bleu C ellar: Sample wines from various regions in Corsica, along with hors doeuvres; 1234 Eighth St. S.; 261-8239.
