Celebrate independenceGo for a run, join the parade, watch the fireworks on the Fourth of July. C1 The King and the BardElvis meets Shakespeare in The Naples Players big summer musical. C1 When the idea of building a 68-bed transitional homeless shelter was hotly contested by Bonita Springs residents, the city banned building anything like that for a year. That would give officials time to create regulations for whatever type of shelter facility, if any, should be in the city of about 44,000 residents, said Mayor Ben Nelson. One year or not, the move has apparently had the result many hoped for: The plan to open a St. Matthews House facility in Bonita is dead. Meanwhile, the emotionally charged debate raised questions about the level of need for shelters or other services in Bonita and surrounding communities, as well as the stigma attached to the words homeless and shelter. OPENING NIGHT AT MONGELLOS RESTAUrant: Diners are schmoozing over chicken Marsala and Mamas lasagna. Some sip red wine, others chew on olives. All are eager for the show to begin. In walk the duo. They sit down with the sole loner, the reporter. Shall they say what they have yet to say? No. Better just to say hello, no formal interviews before the show. The lights dim and the stage carries the affluent audience to an alternative retail utopia one where everythings a deal, all sales are final and taxes included; one where vendors are neighbors, fighting feuds and forging alliances; one where the landlord says, Good morning, then asks, Wheres your rent? The audience turns into the customer, meeting merchants who can offer them autographed pictures by Jesus, Viagra-infused coffee beans or celebrity orgasms, digitally recorded and dangling from key chains.Bonita strikes shelter plan, questions of need persistBY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ BY ATHENA PONUSHISaponushis@ EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe womens dorm at the St. Matthews House shelter in east Naples.SEE SHELTER, A20SEE FLEA BITTEN, A8 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLY Betsy Bennett and Rick ComptonComedy duo pulls from real life at Flamingo Island

Novels written by friends of mine, too, which is why this is a recommendation, not a review: I recommend you go buy them immediately at or elsewhere (Barnes & Noble might do). Look for Robert Hilliard (Phillipa) and Thomas Fox Averill (Rode). Then watch your life lift and soar. There have been other stories of characters wrestling to be free Born on the Fourth of July, for example, by Ron Kovic. But that was an autobiography later fictionalized as an Oliver Stone movie, a story assaulted by irony. Mr. Kovic was born on July 4, 1946, then clapped into the ball-and-chain nightmare of Vietnam, where he was ambushed, shot, paralyzed from the chest down and permanently imprisoned in a wheelchair. The two Marines who saved him for that fate were both killed, one on the spot and the other later in the day. The novels that I recommend here, however, are not ironic. Instead, theyre ferocious, charming, arguably optimistic, and frequently terrifying. Robert Hilliards Phillipa is a lucent and harrowing exploration of German Jews and gentiles during the Third Reich. Two principle characters, Phillipa and Walter, struggle to survive their own comfort, their own weaknesses, and the banal and sometimes vicious cowardice of colleagues, friends and countrymen, while grasping for the sustaining freedom of l ove, both physical and mental. Thomas Fox Averills Rode, meanwhile spare and lyrical describes Robert Johnsons odyssey for love on a long, lean, green-eyed, sun-hued stud, from Tennessee through Arkansas and Texas, then into Mexico and back. He weaves his tale in the colorful cloth of the West, from the thin frame and slender thread of a vibrant old Jimmy Driftwood ballad, Tennessee Stud. Both novels are richly nuanced throwdowns. They challenge what I think of as evil: the dark caste within some humans that would drown the freedomloving soul of Independence Day with no more thought than a psychopath drowns a puppy. Against that reality stand two very different men and two very different stories but both champions of action in the face of tyranny, no matter how large and intimidating, no matter how small or banal, and no matter where: from eastern Arkansas to Auschwitz. I could tell you more about the books about the rare ability of both authors to paint complex women, for example but others have done so. Philip Jason feted Phillipa in the July 7, 2010 issue of Florida Weekly, and reviews of Rode appear at www.Amazon. com, and elsewhere online. Instead, let me tell you briefly what I know about these extraordinary writers. Dr. Hilliard is professor emeritus from Emerson College in Boston, author of more than 30 books and the former chief of public broadcasting for the Federal Communications Commission. Mr. Averill, whose novel won the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museums award for Best Western Novel of 2011 (Charles Portis, Cormac McCarthy, Larry McMurty and Barbara Kingsolver number among previous winners), teaches English literature and creative writing at Washburn University in his hometown, Topeka, Kansas. I met Tom when I was 18 and he was much older, maybe 22 or so. With Eva Tarnower, who had known him since childhood, we saddled our horses and rode halfway across Kansas. Tom kept a guitar braced across the pommel of his saddle, and I remember us all singing Tennessee Stud at least until that tough little pony developed a saddle sore. Then we carried on sans saddle and guitar, riding bareback in rotation. We rode out of the hilly eastern prairie around Lawrence, crossed the Potawatomi Indian Reservation near Mayetta, and finally reached a family farm maintained by a friend of ours in North Central Kansas. For Tom, that little trip was the least of it. He knows what hes talking about. I met Robert on the other end of my adult life, earlier this year at a Naples Philharmonic Center exhibit of 100 AP photographs of World War II. So Ive written about him before (see The bona fide red, white, and blue, Florida Weekly, March 28). Coming to know him both in short letters and in person has been a paramount gift of my later years. Born and raised in an immigrant Jewish family in New York City, Robert somehow survived the Battle of the Bulge (not intact, however). Then, when he was much older 19 he and an Army friend saved roughly 10,000 Jewish refugees who had been freed from concentration camps and then abandoned by American occupation forces. He knows what hes talking about, too, like Tom Averill. And so do I (sometimes). If you like to read, do yourself a favor and try these two stories.

Appearing in The New York Times, it explains why President Barack Obama personally approves drone strikes: A student of writings on war by Augustine and Thomas Aquinas, he believes that he should take moral responsibility for such actions. Now, who would know that President Obama is a student of Augustine and Aquinas or to put a finer point on it, that President Obama considers himself a student of Augustine and Aquinas? Its hard to see the president interrupting deliberations with his generals and top intelligence officials to parse the finer points of great Christian authors from centuries ago. And who would take care to tell a reporter that the presidents wide-ranging reading of works dating from the fifth and 13th centuries informs his work as commander in chief? The detail reeks of the sycophancy of a White House insider who wants his boss to get credit for all of his prodigious talents and enviable qualities. Leaks in Washington are nothing new, and they have many purposes to undercut rivals, to float preliminary proposals, to blow the whistle on potential wrongdoing. The Obama national-security leaks are overwhelmingly the product of vanity. They show off the presidents exquisitely thoughtful tough-mindedness and, above all, his killer instinct. In its report about Obamas kill list, The New York Times cited three dozen of his current and former advisers. Another Times story on cyberattacks on Irans nuclear program relied on officials involved in the program. In one tense meeting described by the Times, the president asked whether the Stuxnet computer worm should be shut down after it escaped into the wider world, according to members of the presidents national security team who were in the room. The dog that doesnt bark in the articles is the outraged dissenter, the leaker whos talking because he cant bear to be associated with a government that assassinates people from on high or launches cyberwarfare against another sovereign country. When The New York Times revealed the Bush administrations National Security Agency spying program back in 2005, it talked to officials who were concerned about the operations legality and oversight. The officials quoted in the Obama articles, in contrast, are practically bragging. In his new book on Obamas nationalsecurity policy, Times reporter David Sanger recounts then-Defense Secretary Bob Gates going into National Security Adviser Tom Donilons office in the wake of leaks about the bin Laden raid and suggesting a new communications strategy: Shut the f--up. Gates wasnt complaining about attacks on the administration from within often the cause of tensions in other administrations but of excessive self-glorification revealing sensitive operational details. The political imperative behind the leaks is demonstrating President Obamas toughness. But administrations also inevitably take on something of the character of the man leading them. No wonder that telling tales out of school about its own prowess is a failing of a team led by a supremely self-impressed man who has already written two memoirs. If he must boast about his coldblooded exploits, he should save it for his third. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.A movement built by dreamersUndocumented immigrants in the United States number around 12 million people, a group larger than the populations of most countries on the planet. Among those are as many as 800,000 young people who are now most likely eligible for limited legal status, thanks to executive action taken last week by President Barack Obama. In a Rose Garden speech, Obama said that he and Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano weare working to mend our nations immigration policy, to make it more fair, more efficient and more just specifically for certain young people sometimes called Dreamers. Behind the speech was a movement for social change, built by millions, each with their own story. The Dreamers are those who are here without legal documentation, often derogatively referred to as illegals, but who came to this country as children, in some cases as infants. As he said in his speech: These are young people who study in our schools, they play in our neighborhoods, theyre friends with our kids, they pledge allegiance to our flag. They are Americans in their heart, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper. For 10 years, people have pushed for an act of Congress to give these young people legal status, through a bill called the DREAM Act, short for the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act. People in the movement dont consider themselves alien. They call themselves undocumented Americans. One of those who stands to directly benefit from the White Houses decision is Lorella Praeli, from New Haven, Conn., a member of the United We Dream national coordinating committee. She fought for passage of the Connecticut version of the DREAM Act. The bill was signed into law last year, making undocumented students eligible for instate tuition at state colleges. Praeli is a 2011 graduate of Quinnipiac University, which she attended on a scholarship. I had a car accident when I was 2 and a half, which resulted in the amputation of my right leg, she explained. My family and I sought treatment at Shriners Hospital. So for many years, we spent time between Peru and Tampa, Fla., which is where the hospital is. When I was 10, my family decided to move to Connecticut. Thats how I ended up here. She went on, I didnt know I was undocumented until toward the end of my high-school career, applying to colleges. ... You need to fill out FAFSA [Free Application for Federal Student Aid], and you need a Social Security number. That was kind of my introduction to what being undocumented really meant and to start to internalize what it meant to be undocumented, feeling very isolated. She was invited by the New Haven mayors office to speak at a press conference. She recalled: I didnt have anything prepared. I got up, and I said something like I am done standing on the sidelines. And that was my coming out, very publicly. And that, I think, just changed my life for the better. They call them coming out stories. Another young immigrant, Jose Antonio Vargas, said it was, for him, less daunting to come out as a gay teenager than to come out as an undocumented American. He came from the Philippines at the age of 12, to stay with his grandparents in California. He didnt learn that he was illegal until he applied for his driving permit at the age of 16. Vargas ultimately became a reporter at The Washington Post. There he was part of a team that won the Pulitzer Prize for reporting on the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007. By 2011, after hiding his immigration status for almost 15 years, Vargas came out in a New York Times Sunday Magazine article. He explained what prompted his decision: Watching United We Dream and watching these four activists from Miami, (who) walked from Miami to Washington, D.C., to fight for the DREAM Act, the Trail of Dreams. I felt like a coward, and I felt accountable. And thats when I decided that, you know what? Ive got to go do this. Movements whether they are civil rights, gay rights or immigration rights are built on a foundation of innumerable small acts of courage. Like the four undocumented students who marched from Miami to D.C., or those who sat in at four of Obamas campaign offices around the country, immediately before his announcement last week (risking arrest, and thus, potentially, deportation), these Dreamers are committed, and organizing. As the anthropologist Margaret Mead said: Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world; indeed, its the only thing that ever has.

The Mystery Solved! | (239) 330-9693 | 501 Goodlette Road North, Suite B302, Naples I first had Nancy Koerner as a guest on my show to discuss her book, Belize Survivor: Darker Side of Paradise. In addition to being a wonderful storyteller, Nancy is a fervent advocate for womens rights and against domestic abuse. Although her book contains domestic abuse, she says, it is not about domestic abuse. And it is, she adds, a roman clef, based on her own experiences. Nancy met the man who would become her husband (and her abuser) at a hippie commune just north of Santa Cruz, Calif. Part of the back-to-the-land movement of the 0s, they wanted to raise their children in a clean, pollution-free environment. They chose Belize because it was English-speaking, agricultural and required no ocean crossings to get there. They started as subsistence farmers in the Macal River Valley of western Belize, growing vegetables and fruit and raising goats and chickens. They also became artisan crafters in tropical hardwoods, making jewelry and furniture. In a natural paradise of mountains, wild rivers and fertile valleys, they lived a simple, primitive lifestyle with little protection from natural disasters. But along with the adventures of thriving and surviving in Belize, Nancy also survived an abusive relationship. Insidious and subtle, the abuse began slowly, with controlling behavior and unreasonable demands mixed with verbal, mental and spiritual cruelty. It inevitably degenerated into appalling acts of physical violence. Today, Nancy is an advocate for the Shelter for Abused Women & Children and is also an inspirational speaker invited to address numerous and varied clubs, organizations and school settings. She also assists women in need in her own private capacity. Nancy grew up in Western Pennsylvania, the daughter of an insurance adjuster and a high school English teacher/guidance counselor. The family shared a love of music and singing and formed a quartet when Nancy was 10. For five years, they performed for church groups and at community events. Today, Nancys dad sings with the Paradise Coastmen Barbershop Chorus. I felt I was born in the wrong century, Nancy says about her childhood. I wanted to explore the unknown. I dreamed often of a faraway tropical river I always felt I would lead a very different life and knew that I would, one day, write a book about that very different life. Contact Nancy via www.belizesurvivor. com. When you purchase her book on her website, a portion of the cost goes to the Shelter for Abused Women & Children.

In the 20 years I knew him, I never saw Jack upset, angry or even in a bad mood. Problems were nonexistent, only challenges to be met and overcome. Hes featured in the last few chapters of Belize Survivor as the character Jack Madera a little inside joke, as madera is the Spanish word for wood.Something your mom was right about: Everything! Especially acceptance, letting things go and moving on.As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Tarzan (not Jane). A cowgirl, archaeologist, adventurer, artist, explorer, sculptor, musician, writer. Interestingly enough, I have actually been all of the above, but I still dont know what I want to be when I grow up. High school job: I was a lifeguard at a hotel near Presque Isle State Park in Erie, Penn.Most recent vacation: I just returned from a solo spiritual pilgrimage into the Belizean jungle.Guilty pleasures: I rarely imbibe, but when I do, I enjoy chocolate soymilk and vodka. Sounds weird, I know, but dont knock it til you try it.Something people might be surprised to nd out about you: Im a gregarious loner, enjoying social activities only in limited quantities and on my own terms. I especially enjoy being alone in the great outdoors.Skill or talent you wish you had: Relaxing. Im just not good at it.Advice for your grandkids: The best education is outside the classroom. Push the limits. Test yourself. I have lived a lifetime doing things that others told me were impossible.Best thing about grandkids: They are pure energy, unprogrammed and with no preconceived notions about what they cant do.What makes you laugh: George Carlin and my pet ferrets, Quasimodo and Odie Cologne.Last books read: Last Flight of the Scarlet Macaw by Bruce Barcott and Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer.Something youll never understand: People who do not live consciously, who merely go through the motions of their lives without ever feeling the reality of being the acute awareness of right now and I am.Pet peeve: The substitution of gadgets for real life Go out and PLAY. Live. Take a chance. Try something new. Learn from your own experience. Get in touch with who you are. What are you most proud of? Taking the road less travelled, being true to the ful llment of my dreams. Living a life of self-awareness and making it count. What the Paradise Coast really needs: More tropical avor and less Tuscan style in residential interior design. After all, this is Florida, not Italy.Favorite thing about the Paradise Coast: The weather, the beach, the rivers for ( at-water kayaking), rainstorms and the ability to grow my tropical ornamental plants year round. What I miss about the Paradise Coast when Im away: Running on the beach in the early morning and the colors of the sky just after dawn.Born survivor leads a different life

PAGE 8 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2012 The dinner plates cleared, diners now feast on a cast of delectable characters a hairdresser who sells wigs made from locally grown hair (she swears she swept up every strand herself); a blues man who repeats the same old sales pitch (because it sure beats having to pass a urine test); a woman looking for a man with money (like the manager of a RadioShack who can take her out to Red Lobster); and a pirate whose inventory includes parrots and paraphernalia (financed by way of the square grouper). Its buffoonery. Its brilliant. Its Compton & Bennett at the flea market. Just like a caricature artist has been trained to draw a big nose bigger, big ears bigger, a thick neck thicker, thats what we have done. We found the flea markets big nose and made it bigger, says Rick Compton. Mr. Compton would be the writer of the pair, the writer who can perform, as his creative partner Betsy Bennett would be the performer who can write. The two received much acclaim for Assisted Living: The Musical, but before they say more on Flea Bitten, the 14th show they have created and performed together, they tell the reporter: Meet us in the morning, between the man with the mini-evil-donuts and the King of Pork, right inside entrance No. 1 at Flamingo Island, the flea market on Bonita Beach Road.Buy or be entertainedThe morning brings aisles of shoes and handbags, luggage and perfume, leather (or pleather, perhaps) belts and wallets, greeting cards missing their envelopes and calendars minus the months of November and December, designer sunglasses and jewelry, pocketknives and socks (diabetic, sport or golf). From the middle ground of cinnamonsugar donuts and barbeque, Mr. Compton leads from the red aisle to the blue. Oh yes, theres aisle pride here, he says. The playwright distinguishes the red aisle as all business, where merchants are generally bitter. But he sees the blue aisle as more laid back, more cool. Fittingly so, the blue aisle pays less rent, as traffic hits the red aisle first. And standing under a dripping air duct at blue booth 32, he explains why he knows so much: Compton & Bennett run their own flea market booth Rockefellers Attic, where the two have spent the past four years collecting material for their 75-minute, two-person, 15-character show. The booth came first, but not by much. Surveying the treasures stashed in their collective garages, the two thought the flea market sounded like fun. It didnt take long for the social commentators to see the market as a fertile field. Its a little like the circus meets the mall, says Mr. Compton. A little like a sideshow circus meets the mall, quips Ms. Bennett, dually communicating the undercurrent of their play and their chemistry as creative partners, in this one exchange. The flea market has irony, Mr. Compton continues. Customers are not coming here to buy stuff, he says; they come for the inherent entertainment. And vendors are not really here to sell stuff, he adds; each has a story for why theyre here, whether it be boredom, retirement or parole. And seeing the two ensconced in Rockefellers Attic, surrounded by old brass lamps and framed prints, linens and cross stitch, Playboy cards and political buttons, you suddenly see, as much as they are actors, they are also characters in their flea market farce. Yes, their booth provided the vantage point from where they could observe and scribe stories of finding love and earning green cards, stories of how the fairest of the mall became the fairest of the market, stories of vacant booths and how it all went down. But watching Ms. Bennett in her Rockefeller element, you see her Flea Bitten character Ariel, a barefoot hippie working at a blue-aisle booth still finding its name. As a young girl, the character says she believed she chose from the lives of the people on TV, whatever I wanted to be. But on the blue aisle, adult Ariel says, I found the best deal, I am what I feel, she decides whats fake and whats real. And hearing Ms. Bennett wait on customers in a fake British accent, you see the purpose in her co-owned booth and her co-written play a stage her stage, where she can be whatever she wants to be, making Ariels words autobiographical. Its all in fun, Ms. Bennett says of the satire and her sales. And as much as Flea Bitten showcases dysfunction, she believes it showcases family, vendors/ neighbors who celebrate each others birthdays and call one another when they dont show up to work.A helluva show Gene Vaccaro, general manager of the 600 spaces at Flamingo Island, says he expected Compton & Bennett to do a show all along. He even asked the duo to open a booth at the flea market, because it was about time somebody wrote it all down. Flamingo Island, he says, would have made one helluva reality show, a flea market with a tiki bar. Searching for the words to describe the characters who work at flea markets, Mr. Vaccaro puts it this way: You dont herd cats and you dont herd flea market vendors. If you could, youd have one powerful force. But they all march in two hundred different directions. And because theyre all independent, they all come here. A leisurely stroll through the aisles to meet some of these characters finds Jim Hord, the voice of Flamingo Islands public announcement system. Mr. Hord read copy for Compton & Bennetts show, copy promoting the Stand Your Ground Handgun Store, where you dont want to make any sudden moves. But on a Friday morning at the market, he promotes pet sunscreen and announces Fla-Bingo numbers, a game for flea market vendors. The flea markets a strange place, Mr. Hord says a great place to learn all the little nuances and idiosyncrasies of the population at large. As far as characterizing the personality traits of flea market vendors, he says, Were different. Were a different group of people. When asked what he means by different, he answers with the same word, Different. Vendors farther down the aisle are equally vague, even wary to tell a reporter their name. They do say their target buyer is the snowbird. And sometimes it only takes one bird to have a good day. At A Perfect Touch Hair Faire, we find Susan Szabo. She always wanted a beauty shop, so she opened her booth. I love it. I love what I do, she says. I have people from all over the United States, Europe and Canada come in and say, I waited just for you to give me a haircut. Before she cut hair, Ms. Szabo was a legal secretary. She says the flea market sure beats having attorneys never tell FLEA BITTENFrom page 1 PHOTOS BY VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYBetsy Bennett and Rick Compton in Rockefellers Attic, their booth at Flamingo Island.

He says his jewels date back 100 to 150 years, from England. How many people sell merchandise from England? he asks. People come to me because I sell them the merchandise below the cost they would have to pay for it anywhere else.

Deaconess Harriet Bedell, missionary to the SeminolesNo story on the history of the Everglades would be complete without a mention of Deaconess Harriet Bedell, who lived and worked among the Seminole Indians of Southwest Florida for almost 30 years, beginning in 1933. This year marks 90 years since she was ordained a deaconess in Portland, Ore. Harriet was born March 19, 1875, in Buffalo, N.Y. Her father drowned when she was 10, and her mother raised Harriet and two younger siblings. At the age of 29, Harriet questioned the visiting pastor on leave from his post in China about what steps she would have to take in order to become a mission teacher. At that time, she was earning a living as a teacher and assistant principal. She also learned bookkeeping, cooking and nursing. Although Harriet had her heart set on going to China someday, her mother did not have the same aspirations for her daughter. She finally agreed that Harriet could pursue deaconess classes, thinking this might deter the young womans desire to go abroad and minister. Upon completion of this deaconess training, Harriet was given her first assignment on a remote mission in northwest Oklahoma, working with the Cheyenne Indians. Fortunately for her, she had spent four years working with the Seneca Indian children from the Cattaraugus reservation just south of Buffalo. She would remain in Oklahoma, where she was well respected and trusted by the entire tribe, for the next nine years. Because of her extensive knowledge of Indian life, coupled with her teaching background, she was then asked to take on an assignment in the outer reaches of Nenana, Alaska. Braving subzero temps and long, severe winters, she asked for a transfer to Stevens Village, a remote town only 40 miles from the Arctic Circle, where she was once again the only white woman for miles around. Another transfer found her in Tanana, Alaska, at an abandoned mission hospital where she spent the next two decades of her life. In 1933, when she was 57 years old, Deaconess Bedell was invited to speak in Miami about the Alaskan field on behalf of the Chain of Missions. It was on this trip that she found her calling, after touring a Seminole reservation in Everglades. She never returned to Alaska, instead focusing on the living conditions of the Miccosukee and Seminole Indians. For the rest of her life, she campaigned to improve their quality of life, helping them to become more self-reliant while reviving their doll-making and basket-weaving skills, which had nearly become extinct. She rented a company house from the Collier Company right in todays Everglades City for the sum of $20 a month. She also learned how to drive an automobile within a weeks time after purchasing a secondhand Model A Ford sedan for $298. A car was essential, as her many charges lived miles apart from one another all along the Tamiami Trail. (And for those charges living in isolation within the swamps, it was nothing for Deaconess s m a fo f c j O a n UNDERCOVER HISTORIANDeaconess Harriet Bedell in her Ford Model A sedan was known to barely drive the legal limit, often resulting in backing up traffic for miles behind during her ministry jaunts.COURTESY PHOTOS / THE COLLIER COUNTY MUSEUMDeaconess Harriet Bedell with William Hartley and the local Seminole Indians. Mr. Hartley went on to write a book about Deaconess Bedell called A Woman Set Apart that was published in 1963.SEE DEACONESS, A11


Bedell to pole a dugout canoe in order to reach them to minister to them.) She soon established Glades Cross Mission, where she taught and healed the Indians as well as led them to Christianity. She also took it upon herself to work out a business arrangement with David Graham Copeland, Barron Colliers general manager of the Collier Company, in order to help the Indians. She would pay the Indians for their handiwork in tickets they could then redeem at the mercantile for food or other supplies. Their handiwork would be put on display at the Glades Cross Mission. The deaconess was, in essence, acting as a nonprofit agent for the Indians. Having been obliged to retire at the age of 68 in 1943, she would succinctly remind others that, There is no retirement in the service of the Master. Knowing there was still much work to be done, she was instrumental in the Indians gaining tribal status and acquiring some 200,000 acres of the Everglades where they could have their own school. And, she also made sure that they were not displaced when Everglades National Park opened in 1947. In 1960, Hurricane Donna essentially forced Deaconess Bedell into retirement, since it destroyed her church as well as her personal belongings. A few weeks after the storm, she was taken to the Bishop Gray Inn, an Episcopalian retirement home in Davenport, Fla., where she took charge of the locals until her death in January 1969, at the age of 94. Deaconess Bedell was added to the List of Lesser Feasts and Fasts at the national convention of the Episcopal Church of America in Los Angeles in the summer of 2009. Her feast day is Jan. 8, the anniversary of her death. Additionally, the Museum of the Everglades has erected a Great Floridian plaque in Deaconess Bedells honor. The museum is at 105 W. Broadway in Everglades City. Maureen Sullivan-Hartung arrived in Naples in 1981. Following a years stint as a reporter for the former weekly Everglades Echo newspaper, she began freelancing.

Mudd Fellowship awarded to Tim Durham SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYTim Durham, chief deputy of the Collier County Supervisor of Elections Office, has been named the James V. Mudd Fellowship recipient, an annual award created by the Leadership Collier Foundation to honor former Collier County Manager Jim Mudd and his outstanding public service leadership. The fellowship annually acknowledges an outstanding leader whose contributions mirror those of Mr. Mudds devotion to enhancing leadership and stewardship. Selected by a confidential committee from the Leadership Collier Foundation, each honoree is deemed to possess and exhibit the following attributes: Integrity: Doing what is right, always. Results-oriented: Focused on both people and program advancement. Selfless community service: Placing others before self. Inspiring: Motivating others to collaborate, follow and lead. Originally from Flemington, N.J., Mr. Durham first served in the United States Army from 1977 to 1990. During this period, he received numerous military awards and competed for Drill Sergeant of the Year honors in 1988. He reentered the Army following 9/11, after a 15-year service break, and was awarded the Bronze Star for meritorious service in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

In announcing the award, Mike Reagen, president and CEO of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, said Mr. Durham successfully guided and assisted with Collier Countys redistricting and precinct/polling place consolidation endeavors with critical deadlines and led a redistricting public education campaign that was unprecedented in depth and scope The program served as a primer in redistricting and greatly facilitated obtaining U.S. Justice Department approval of Collier Countys plans. Jennifer Edwards, Collier County Supervisor of Election, said, Tims last deployment was a year in harms way in Iraq, and he brings this same love of country and dedication to his role as Collier County chief deputy supervisor of elections. She added, He understands that we are gatekeepers of democracy, and that we provide a fundamental right to the residents of our wonderful community. His steadfast work and excellent service deserve our thanks and admiration and make him very worthy of this award. Mr. Durham will receive the James V. Mudd Fellowship award at a public ceremony at 10 a.m. Friday, July 13, in the Leadership Collier Foundation Community Room at chamber of commerce headquarters, 2390 Tamiami Trail. All are welcome. Airport passes annual review with flying colors SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Federal Aviation Administration has completed its annual review and found Naples Municipal Airport 100 percent in compliance with all required standards. This is the 17th consecutive year the airport has earned a perfect score. The FAA inspection includes all aspects of airport operations: airfield, runway, lighting and fueling facilities, as well as an assessment of record keeping, training procedures and aircraft rescue and fire fighting safety drills. Each of these areas is reviewed annually as part of the airport recertification process. Safety is our No. 1 priority, and the annual FAA inspection validates our efforts to make the airport as safe and operationally correct as possible, Executive Director Ted Soliday says. No discrepancies for the 17th year in a row is a record few airports can claim and a testimony to the hard word and commitment of the airport staff. Naples Municipal Airport operates as a general aviation airport but complies with the standards of Federal Aviation Regulations Part 139, which sets safety guidelines for airports with commercial airline service. The airport also maintains the same level of security as commercial-service airports and adheres to all Transportation Security Administrative directives. Naples Municipal Airport, a certificated air carrier airport, is home to flight schools, air charter operators and corporate aviation and nonaviation businesses as well as fire/rescue services, mosquito control, car rental agencies and the Collier County Sheriffs Aviation Unit. All funds used for the airports operation, maintenance and improvements are generated from activities at the airport or from federal and state grants; the airport receives no property tax dollars. During the 2010-2011 fiscal year, the airport accommodated more than 84,000 takeoffs and landings. The Florida Department of Transportation values the airports economic impact to the community at more than $273 million annually.

Measuring literacy success in the words of a new American citizen SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Success for adult learners at Literacy Volunteers of Collier County is measured in a myriad of ways, whether it is earning a job promotion because the students English literacy has improved or passing the rigorous U. S. citizenship test that requires solid knowledge of English. An LVCC adult learner who has just passed the test to become a U.S. citizen was eager to share the good news about her success. She wrote the following letter to the organization and to her volunteer tutor, Lani Fiordaliso: My name is Zhaydee Hernandez de Echeverria. Im from Venezuela. I have been here since January 2006. My oldest daughter helped my husband and I get our residency. We came here looking for a new opportunity of life, for us and for our five children, because the political situation and quality of life in Venezuela is getting worse each day. Im a seamstress and Id like to become a successful entrepreneur. The first problem that I had was the limit in my language. I began looking for the best free program to learn English. I went to Barron Collier High School for two years. I learned English grammar there. I wanted to learn more. I wanted to speak English fluently. I was looking for a tutor. Then a friend recommended me to the LVCC. I went there and I found special people to guide me toward my goal. I began to attend the English Language Laboratory. Then I took a test and finally they assigned me a tutor... I thought it was a gift of God. My tutors name is Lani Fiordaliso. She is the nicest and kindest person. She was a ballroom dancer and she loves fashion. I feel really comfortable and confident with her. Im so grateful.

FREE! FREE! FREE!She began to teach me how to express myself to my customer. She taught me how to answer the telephone call. She taught me about the English sewing and alterations terms. We studied fashion magazines together, and little by little, I began to feel self confidence speaking English. This year I decided to apply to become an American citizen. When I communicated that decision to Lani, she nicely began to study with me. She brought me a lot of information about American culture, history and the role of every branch of government. She also brought me a lot of information about the origin of the country, the Pilgrims and the native Indians. We studied together and I learned many things relative to the citizenship test. I enjoyed every class and learning about this great country was really pleasant to me. I began to have so much admiration for how this country was founded. The most impressive things to me are the moral values and solidarity of the country. It is so much different than what I knew in Venezuela. When the day of the test arrived, I was a little nervous but I had enough self confidence to show them that I can speak English. The test was easy and went smoothly. It was a really nice experience. When the interviewer said to me, Congratulations, you passed your test, I felt like the happiest person in the world! Then my husband and I went to our oath ceremony. It was a very emotional ceremony. When I heard the Star Spangled Banner, I thought to myself: This is my anthem now. Then they said they had 173 people from 36 countries in the world (being naturalized that day) and began to call out every country. We stood up and of course I was crying. I began to feel really happy and proud to be an American citizen. I think this country is the best country in the world, which opens their arms to everyone. We are all one! I feel really proud of being an American citizen. Now I want to become a successful entrepreneur, and give to this country all that I have. I dont have enough words to say thank you to LVCC for helping me achieve my goal and especially to my precious tutor Lani for all her kindness and dedication to help me. Thanks a lot, a million thanks! God bless everyone, and especially Lani forever! Zhaydee Hernandez Ms. Fiordaliso and Ms. Hernandez have worked together studying English since Ms. Fiordaliso graduated from LVCCs tutor training program in July 2011. At the same time, Ms. Hernandez has been running her dressmaking business in North Naples. A seamstress with more than 35 years experience making wedding dresses, she also does alterations. I can transform, beautify and upgrade clothing from past seasons. So many people have favorite clothes in their closets occupying a useless spot because the clothes just need to be recycled. I can do that with great creativity and good taste, she says proudly. All of us at LVCC get a kick when we learn of successes like Zhaydees, says Rita Bleasdale, board president. The organizations challenge, she adds, is to train enough volunteer tutors to meet the demands of adult learners. We need more volunteer tutors. No experience is necessary, and no knowledge of a second language is required. Established in Naples in 1983, LVCC is dedicated to teaching non-English speaking adults and their families to read, write and speak English. Those interested in signing up for the next LVCC tutor training session in August should call 262-4448, ext. 301.

Email or call To the ninth ring of hell Debbie Stevens, 47, filed a claim before the New York Human Rights commission in April alleging that she was fired in November by Ms. Jackie Brucia, a controller of the Atlantic Automotive Group of West Islip, N.Y., after Stevens failed to recover quickly enough from major surgery in August. Ms. Stevens had donated a kidney to Ms. Brucia, who apparently could not understand why Ms. Stevens was still in pain by Sept. 6 so that she needed more time off. (Actually, since Ms. Brucia and Ms. Stevens were not perfect matches, Ms. Brucia had Ms. Stevens donate to a woman ahead of Ms. Brucia on the waiting list, which created an opening for Ms. Brucia. Ms. Brucias husband told a New York Post reporter in April that Ms. Stevens claims were far from the truth, but would not elaborate.) A CNN investigation revealed in May that the Disabled Veterans National Foundation had collected almost $56 million in donations over four years but given nearly all of it to two direct-mail fundraising companies. CNN was able to locate a small veterans charity in Birmingham, Ala., that received help, but mainly in the form of 2,600 bags of cough drops, 2,200 bottles of sanitizers, 11,520 bags of coconut M&Ms and 700 pairs of Navy dress shoes. Another, in Prescott, Ariz., received hundreds of chefs coats and aprons, cans of acrylic paint and a needlepoint design pillowcase. Said the manager of the Birmingham charity, I ask myself what the heck are these people doing.Oops! Andrea Amanatides suffered a booboo in May while being booked to begin a six-month jail sentence in Albany, N.Y., for a probation violation. As she was being placed in a holding cell, a cache of drugs fell onto the floor. Deputies soon figured out that a condom Amanatides had placed into a bodily orifice had burst. The final inventory: 26 Oxycontins, 10 Ambiens, 50 Valiums, 37 Adderalls, plus 133 more prescription pills and four baggies containing heroin. The sequence was captured on surveillance video. Weekend WTMW-TV (Portland, Maine) news anchor Meghan Torjussen was called on to deliver breaking sports news on June 3, the score of a playoff game between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat.

Theres the score (on the screen), 89-89. Uh, went down to the wire ... ended in a tie. (A)ll right, lets move on to professional baseball. (Boston eventually won, in overtime, 93-91.)Things people believe Seattle attorney Andrew Basiago told Huffington Post in April that he time-traveled eight times as a child as part of the secret Project Pegasus staged by the Pentagons notorious Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Another lawyer, Alfred Webre, recently explained, matter-of-factly, to a seminar audience in Vancouver, British Columbia, that teleportation is an inexpensive, environmentally friendly means of transportation and was used most recently by then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to transport troops to battle. Basiago said, in a flourish of detail, that he was at Fords Theater the night Abraham Lincoln was assassinated but did not witness it, and said that twice, he ran into himself while back in the past. In June, the North Carolina Senate passed a state House of Representatives bill (House Bill 819) that orders scientists to use the correct way to predict weather in North Carolina. The bill requires that only historical analogies back to 1900 be used to predict sealevel rise meaning that scientists must ignore feedback loops in which recent, consistent heat and violent atmospheric conditions suggest more radical weather. For example, nine of the hottest 10 years on record have occurred since 2000, but North Carolina scientists must not be swayed by that fact because only patterns of the more stable 20th century can forecast 21st-century sea levels. (Many North Carolina coastal property owners believe the 40-or-more-inch rise in sea level by 2100 that is predicted by most scientists would threaten property values and would rather believe the perhaps-8-inch rise that House Bill 819 would dictate.)Sounds like a joke In testimony at an extortion trial in New York City in June, Anthony Russo (alleged Colombo family associate) told prosecutors that a mob war was narrowly averted after another Colombo hand learned that a new Staten Island pizza parlor (run by an alleged Bonanno associate) featured pies that suspiciously resembled those of the top-rated L&B Spumoni Gardens in Brooklyn, which has Colombo ties. Representatives of the families had a sit-down (at a neutral site a Panera Bread restaurant!) and worked out a payment plan to satisfy L&B. Seattle police reported that a woman had been walking her dog in Plymouth Pillars Park at about 2 a.m. on May 10 and allegedly making noise that disturbed another man. Both were carrying pooper scoopers, and it is unclear which of the two started it, but the woman claimed the man jousted his toward her off and on in a -minute duel, as she used hers to block his assaults. Police said a search failed to turn up suspects.Bright ideas Five hikers on holiday from Miami got lost overnight on May 3 high in the Adirondack Mountains in Essex County, N.Y., and endured a night of rain with temperatures in the 40s before they were rescued. One or more of the hikers (number unclear in the news report) got to test one theory of body-w arming, but learned that its benefit was illusory. That is, warming up a cold body by urinating on it provides only momentary, if any, relief. NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

The fact of the matter is me, you, we all have our little quirks, Mayor Nelson says. People forget that not everybody who lives in a house is OK. About 11 percent of people who live in Bonita are below the poverty level, according to the U.S. Census, compared to 12.2 percent in Collier County and 12 percent in Lee County. The actual homeless population is difficult to count and numbers are unreliable, but efforts to seek out the homeless on any given day by local coalitions have yielded 30 to 40 homeless people in Bonita and more than 1,000 in adjoining areas. Residents in Bonita are concerned a transitional shelter of the size St. Matthews House proposed designed to fill a need both in Bonita and surrounding areas would lower property values and create a criminal presence, suggests Bonita Springs Councilwoman Martha Simons. I have no problem with women and children getting the care that they need, she says. But the concern is that thats not a lot of the people that will be brought to our facility. (Ms. Simons has also suggested that feeding the needy at a local park is inappropriate, and that free meals should be served in a nearby indoor facility instead.) Instead, Bonita officials are leaning toward smaller group homes that allow five to 10 people at a time. Me personally, I really dont think these large homeless shelters are appropriate for a community of this size, Mayor Nelson says. Kerri Sparks, director of development at St. Matthews House, says shelter rules and regulations make larger facilities orderly. For instance, residents are assigned case managers and chores; they must keep their dorms militaryneat and pay $50 or do additional work after being there more than two weeks. There are more single mothers and children who are homeless than years ago, shelter directors say, when that group was more typically men with substance abuse or mental health issues. The fastest growing subpopulation is families with children, says Janet Bartos, director of the Lee County Homeless Coalition. And it usually is a female with a child. Men with addictions and mental health problems are still a strong presence at shelters, including at the St. Matthews House transitional shelter in Naples. The mens dormitory is nearly double the size of the womens. Elsewhere, there are separate rooms for families. It used to mostly be (people came to shelters) because of alcohol and drug addiction, says Todd Malkowitz, who was one of them until he came to St. Matthews House and got clean seven years ago. But now its more financial. Im not saying the drug and alcohol part has gotten any less, but the need has expanded because of the financial difficulties so many people face today. The average stay at the shelter is two months, but there is a one-year program called Justins Place Recovery Program for treating addictions. Mike Peters recently completed that program. This is a program created to (help people) reintegrate to society, Mr. Peters says. This is not a flophouse. Its an extremely structured environment. A mother and her two sons who were homeless in Bonita Springs are currently at the St. Matthews House shelter in east Naples, says Heather Jackomino, case manager for the family unit there. It provides a transitional environment thats safe, says Ms. Jackomino, who was once homeless with her infant. She lived at St. Matthews House while earning an online certification in addiction counseling; now she works at the shelter fulltime. I cant imagine a town that wouldnt want that. The thought would never come to my mind its a bad thing. Councilwoman Ms. Simons suggests the city of Bonita, sandwiched between a portion of southern Lee and northern Collier, doesnt have the need or infrastructure such as a Social Security office or enough law enforcement to support a 68-bed shelter. We dont have a lot of homeless population in Bonita because we have several organizations that help prevent homelessness, she says, adding: There are people who dont go (to shelters) because they like living out in the woods Ive met people whove told me that. Last week at St. Matthews House there were 84 people, including six families, on the waiting list between the shelters three Collier facilities, director Rev. Van Ellison said.

Distilling information from the American Hospital AssociationWe can learn a lot from the American Hospital Association, which gathers input from almost 5,000 hospitals of all sizes and types from around the nation. Heres some of what I learned from the AHA at the recent meeting of our southeastern regional policy board in Alabama: Redesigning primary care A report from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation disputed the notion that America faces an imminent shortage of primary care providers. It concluded that, Numbers of physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants have grown in recent years relative to the general population. What is bothersome, however, is the profound maldistribution of caregivers, resulting in severe shortages in rural areas and among overlooked populations. A new care model is needed; a team approach including a physician leader, one or more nurse practitioners or physician assistants, social service, dieticians and others can better care for the 5 percent of patients who make up the sickest and who use 50 percent of our health-care resources. As to the rest of us, we, too, can be cared for in innovative ways. One such way involves Dr. Watson, the IBM computer that understands most languages, can obtain a medical history over the Internet, gather lab and radiology information, make a diagnosis and send a prescription to a nearby pharmacy on your insurance plan. The Dr. Watson system, already functioning in several states, also completes the paperwork aspect by debiting a bank account and securing insurance company reimbursement. Other innovations in primary care include Walmart planning primary care clinics in its almost 4,000 stores, within 15 miles of 90 percent of Americans. Primary care is so important for the economic health of our nation; if we can prevent illness, we will have stronger individuals, more satisfied communities and a more self-sufficient nation. Sustaining Medicare and Medicaid Regardless of the Supreme Court decision on health care, we must make our system more efficient by embracing such things as adopting evidence-based medicine, reducing unnecessary testing and treatment, applying appropriate end-of-life care, investing in robust information technology as a backbone and rewarding performance based on value (quality or outcome divided by cost). Promoting personal engagement by patients is the other half of the equation. Everyone agrees we need to focus on caring for ourselves (by utilizing such tools as smoking cessation and weight control). But there is debate as to whether Medicare and Medicaid should evolve from a traditional fee-for-service to fully managed care, or even evolve to a system giving patients funding to shop for and buy their own health insurance. Update from Washington The AHA report from the nations capital was concerning, mostly revolving around the government not having enough funds to sustain the level of health-care reimbursement we have all come to expect. The average American familys net worth has dropped by some $50,000 during the most recent recession. When coupled with the projected need to have $20,000 per person per year in retirement just to pay for health care, this is a serious concern. Such uncertainty relative to limited health-care resources makes the AHA rallying cry that much more critical: We Care, We Vote. Dr. Allen Weiss is the president and CEO of NCH Healthcare NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA22 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2012 HEALTHY LIVINGFamily medicine puts the emphasis on relationships BY DR. MICHELLE BECKERSpecial to Florida WeeklyThe American Academy of Family Physicians defines family medicine as the medical specialty which provides continuing, comprehensive health care for the individual and family. It is a specialty in breadth that integrates the biological, clinical and behavioral sciences. The scope of family medicine encompasses all ages, both sexes, each organ system and every disease entity. More simply, your family medicine physician is there to promote overall health and advocate all-encompassing well-being for people of all ages. But family medicine is much more. Treating families, sometimes four generations at a time, from the newborn baby to great grandparent and everyone in between, requires that the family medicine physician have a remarkable understanding of the relationships that exist between actual family members. One of the most common questions I am asked is how someone becomes a physician and then a family medicine physician. The process takes about 11 years. Typically, a doctor first obtains a bachelors degree in one of the core sciences. Then, another four years is spent at a medical school earning a doctorate degree in allopathic medicine (i.e., an M.D.) or in osteopathic medicine (i.e., a D.O.). After that comes a residency, which for family medicine is another three years of specialty training focusing on all that being a family doctor entails. Once upon a time, after becoming a physician, one could hang his or her shingle and immediately begin practice as a general practitioner. Back then, being a specialist meant completing more formal training in residency a sort of apprenticeship where one learns their craft by focusing on a particular organ or organ system, usually over the course of three to five years. Oh, but how times have changed. Todays primary care physicians, including those who practice family medicine, pediatrics and internal medicine, are also regarded as specialists who are trained to treat children and adults of all ages. In my case, after earning a bachelor of science in biological sciences from the University of Cincinnati, I earned a doctor of medicine at the Medical College of Ohio. During my family medicine clinical rotation, I met Dr. Archie Bedell, a true pioneer in family medicine who also happened to be director of the Mercy Health Partners, St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program in Toledo. An old-fashioned family doctor and brilliant clinician, Dr. Bedell once graced the Vaudeville stage in between making house calls. There is no doubt that my character as a family doctor was greatly influenced by Dr. Bedells emphasis on personal care and traditional values. These days, when I walk into the room to see a patient, I am not just a doctor, but also a human being able to connect in a way that is difficult to put into words. The advice and treatment that occurs in the exam room is, on one level, medical science.

and a medical advisor, confidante and even friend. Helping each person realize he or she can attain the greatest possible health is the family medicine doctors responsibility. As family medicine physicians, we are, in a sense, mechanics of the flesh sizing up health and disease, this part and that, in order to sustain health, prevent disease or fix a problem of the patient. But there is so much more to the sacred relationship between the patient and the doctor. Yes, there is a common goal between patient and physician toward quality of life and building greater health. But there is also something else, a special bond that develops from a unique type of human connection and that makes this line of work one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Family medicine is a very special place, where professionalism, compassion, science and emotion blur into one another. Being a family medicine physician is not just what I do, but who I am.

REMBOS, D.D.S., P.A.Northwestern University Graduate Implant Dentistry Fellowship Certification ICOI Gl&CD Comprehensive Dental Care in a Comfortable Environment! all treatment Safe on the Fourth of JulyMedications, special shirts may calm anxious pets when fireworks BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickIf theres one holiday thats not popular at U.S. shelters and veterinary emergency hospitals, its probably the Fourth of July. Thats because the fireworks and other celebrations of this midsummer bash trigger pet care tragedies a flow of lost pets, sick pets and injured pets. Loud noises startle and distress many pets, with their supersensitive hearing. Scared pets have been known to jump out of apartment windows, leap over or dig under fences, or chew their skin until its raw. They may also bolt out an open door to become lost and never found, or hit by a car. Even the ones who just tremble in terror may be safe, but theyre miserable. Even calm pets may seize the opportunity offered by a holiday buffet to eat something they should not. While most of the danger is on the actual holiday, the noise and parties can continue for days, especially when the Fourth falls midweek, as it does this year. The best defense against Fourth of July problems is a good offense started weeks or months before summer. Professional trainers and behaviorists start socializing dogs and making every potentially negative experience such as fireworks and thunderstorms into something rewarding. If a negative experience comes with tasty treats, then your pet is going to at least tolerate it, if not welcome it. This works best when started as a puppy, but dont give up hope if your dog is already an adult: New behaviors can be learned. One way to help your pet is to expose him or her to commercial recordings of thunderstorms or fireworks and play them at increasing volume. Play the recordings at low volume recognizing how acute a pets hearing is and give praise and treats. Its a party! As the volume and duration are increased during subsequent sessions, give him really tasty treats so he has the expectation of a repeat treat. Initially, play the recording for five minutes, eventually leaving it on during daily activities as normal background noise. Thats fine for next year, but what about this years holiday? Provide pets with safe hiding spaces inside your home during the holiday fireworks or a storm. Dogs and cats who are comfortable in crates can find them a good place to ride out the noise, especially if the crate is put in a quiet, darkened part of the house. Some pets are so unhinged by noise that veterinary-prescribed medications are needed to keep them calm. Valium and Xanax (and their generic versions) are well-tolerated by most pets, and many veterinarians are happy to provide you with a pre-holiday prescription. Remember to give the medications as recommended they usually work best before the rockets red glare begins. And talk to your veterinarian about other calming techniques. Some alternative-care veterinarians may recommend the herbal product Rescue Remedy, while others can show you acupressure and massage techniques to keep pets calmer. Pet-supply retailers offer additional ways to calm your pet, such as with pressure shirts for animals, which work off the same principles that calm autistic children. The Thundershirt and The Anxiety Wrap are two such products for dogs and cats. The Calming Cap, which reduces sensory input, is another product meant to ease anxious pets. Finally, for dogs theres the Through a Dogs Ear series of music CDs that are clinically proven not to cover noise, but to use sound to calm canines. Make sure your pet isnt a casualty of Independence Day. If nothing else, keep your pet inside until the celebrations are over, and call your veterinarian for medication that can help ease the fear.

Though possibly handling problems of their own making, they are coping with problems created by their respective (oft times undisciplined) governments, including: runaway budget deficits that require central banks to create electronic money to purchase their sovereign debt and failed fiscal policies of their governments. Conveniently, many governments have laid the sovereign debt and unemployment problems at the doorstep of central bankers. The worlds central banks bear a variety of different names. The U.S. central bank is called the Federal Reserve (the Fed); the European Unions central bank (for those countries using the euro) is the European Central Bank (ECB); Chinas central bank is the Bank of China, etc. However, the countries subject to the ECB did not dissolve their national central banks (e.g., Germany still keeps its Bundesbank operational). There are core similarities in the mandates of these diverse central banks. In times past, their roles were more narr owly defined or executed. However, post 2008 (the onset of the financial crisis), central bankers undertook unconventional actions; the U.S. Fed was the first to aggressively expand the scope of monetary actions and many of the central banks are now mimicking the Feds creative solutions. For simplicitys sake, the rest of this column will narrow its scope to focus on the U.S. central bank. The Federal Reserve board members are not elected by U.S. citizens. In fact, the president selects new board members, but only from the short list of candidates submitted by the Fed itself. Beyond its nonelected aspect, the Fed is not an agency of the U.S. It is privately owned by the large U.S. banks, which it is supposed to be governing. Yet these banks do not have shareholder voting rights nor can they sell their ownership interest. Further, the Fed reports to Congress but it is not beholden to Congress. It is a very strange hybrid of public and private at work. The fact that the Feds leadership is: somewhat self-chosen, not under the governments thumb and limited to a small group of decision makers might be the very reasons why the financial world was kept afloat in 2008 to 2009. The fact that a small group makes extremely important decisions quickly without having to consider their congressional/political careers is needed in todays topsey-turvey world. The Fed has two primary jobs. It controls the money supply of the U.S. and, accordingly, the Fed is charged with containing inflation/preventing deflation. In 1978 (upon passage of the Full Employment and Balanced Growth Act), the Feds role was expanded to include fostering full employment through monetary policy. This additive role is very much criticized. Many believe that the Feds monetary easings (intended to promote full employment) have caused most of the asset bubbles in the past 30 years. Others chant, But for the Fed! believing that the Feds quick and massive actions were things that stopped a depression and they point to a congress that fails to put forth and enact a fiscal agenda. Beyond those two mandates, the Fed also took on the role of buyer of last resort at U.S. Treasury auctions that were not fully absorbed domestically or by foreign sovereigns. To fill the remaining gaps, the Fed bought what was needed in the Treasury auctions via electronic creation of money. Yes, this increases the money supply, but such growth in money supply is not necessarily dollar devaluing or monetizing of the debt although it very well could turn into such. The Fed has faced shrinking velocity and has chosen to grow money supply so as to avoid outright deflation.What most dont know, however, is the gargantuan size of the various monetary actions undertaken by the Fed since 2008, now quantified at $29 trillion of asset purchases and direct lending, far greater than Bloombergs $7.7 trillion number. In 2008, the Fed became a lender of last resort to the private sector and to other central banks. It began a primary dealer credit facility (nine trillion) and offered central bank liquidity swaps (ten trillion). For the nine trillion of currency swaps with the ECB, the Fed loaned dollars to the ECB and took euros as collateral, with a stipulated maturity and interest rate. (Source: The Levy Economics Institute, $29,000,000,000,000: A Detailed Look at the Feds Bailout by Funding Facility and Recipient, December 2011, Legal? Yes. The authorization of many of these unconventional measures (is found in the) Federal Reserve Act Section 13(3), which gave authority under unusual and exigent circumstances to extend credit to individuals, partnerships, and corporations. (Source: The Levy Institute report.) So what does all this mean to an investor? The central banks are wielding great power until such time as governments can create fiscal policies sufficient to address economic ills. Further, Congress does not challenge these unconventional actions because few in Congress understand what the Fed is doing and why it was necessary. Further, Congress cannot chastise the Fed as it is the Fed which is acting as buyer of last resort for Treasury debt. The investor should expect continued uncertainty and turmoil.

WELLS WEAVER sports mom and a haiku master (write well in brief is the art of the tweet) is the celebratory marketing voice of the Gulf Coast Symphony. She was doing what many marketers in the region now do: They use wit, humor, imagination, a bit of themselves and intensely condensed writing skills to market their companies and products through social media. They used to do something else go to breakfast, go to lunch, glad-hand and backslap, perhaps. The funny thing about social media, quote-unquote, is that its just a new term. It used to be called Rotary or Kiwanis or the Chamber of Commerce. Its an electronic handshake, observes Nicolette Beard, the new communications manager for the Naples Botanical Garden (@ NaplesBontanical, on Twitter). Youd be surprised what kind of personality comes through on Twitter, she adds. But theres a rule of thumb with tweeting, as well as with posting on Facebook for business: Youre there as a service and as a servant to your customer base, so you want to be perceived as a resource. I post resource links, or the education department will post what theyve found blooming in the garden, or what unique species theyve found that kind of thing. And Twitter in particular, as everybody knows except males 55 and older (the demographic least likely to use it, she notes), works best when the tweeter tones down the rhetoric and tones up the light touch. People are not on Twitter to be sold thats why they have DVDs, so they can avoid commercials, explains Samantha Scott, the marketing and public relations Grand Poobah at Pushing the Envelope (@getpushing, on Twitter). The company builds Twitter into wideranging social and other media strategies for clients across the region. Twitter is about social relationships first, not about advertising, she notes. Her own Twitter autobiography suggests that, a blend of the personal and the marketable. Beneath her smiling photo she has written, Christian, triathlete, immoderate lover of dogs/animals, wannabe foodie, consortium of random knowledge & Grand Poobah @ Pushing the Envelope, a mar-com firm, Fort Myers. She follows that with what now seems like an old-hat web address: a strategyIn fact, all social media including the web can be connected and used in tandem, and should be, the marketing experts say. But Twitter has a distinct character requiring a strict skill-set. Microblogging is the crux of Twitter, says Ms. Scott. We use it for communication and research, for monitoring competition, and for sharing value-added information. Offering followers useful information without advertising is something a lot of businesses should be doing and may not be doing, she notes. Ms. Scott allows herself a 4-to-1 ratio in tweets to 1,476 followers of @getpushing: For every four tweets you send out that are industry related or value added or related to the community youre in, you get one promo post or advertising tweet. This is not how everybody does it. At the other end of the strategy universe, marketers at Southwest Florida International Airport (@fortmyersflights) use Twitter as an indiscriminate billboard, sometimes delivering tweets every hour or two, 24/7. They all begin this way: Cheap Fort Myers flights to Strategy, advises Ms. Beard at the Naples Botanical Garden, should come first. Then marketers should find the technology to fit it.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2012 BUSINESS B5 THE MOTLEY FOOL Private Equity 101Thanks in part to Mitt Romney, many people are hearing about private equity firms such as Bain Capital and wondering what they are. In general, these outfits make their money by offering companies guidance to boost their efficiency and funding to rescue them or help them grow. There are several different kinds of private equity organizations. Venture capital (VC) enterprises tend to make somewhat risky investments in young, growing firms, before the firms have IPOs (initial public offerings) and issue stock to the public. Companies such as Apple and Microsoft once tapped venture capital. Then there are the leveraged buyout (LBO) outfits, which like to buy big public companies by taking on a lot of debt. The LBO firm will often take the company private and use much of its excess cash to pay off its debt, often while trying to improve the efficiency of the company (frequently via layoffs, among other things). Eventually, the acquired company will be sold to another buyer or to the public, via an IPO. Other private equity investments include buying chunks of private companies or distressed companies, with the intent of restructuring and then selling them. There are private equity funds, too, which aggregate and invest the money of smaller investors (generally those who have more than $1 million in net worth). Money invested in private equity is often tied up for at least several years. Private equity organizations arent required to make public the kind of information that public companies must disclose. They neednt release quarterly performance reports or audited financial statements, for example. And they enjoy some tax advantages, as well. Some of the big names in private equity are TPG Capital ($50.6 billion raised, and past deals including J. Crew, Petco and Burger King), Goldman Sachs Capital Partners ($47.2 billion, Alltell Wireless, Biomet), The Carlyle Group ($40.5 billion, Dunkin Brands, HCR Manor Care), Kohlberg Kravis Roberts ($40.2 -billion, RJR Nabisco, Toys R Us), and The Blackstone Group ($36.4 billion, Hilton Worldwide, Dynegy). 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. Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & EnrichSold Too SoonI have so many dumb investments to choose from! For example, I owned 5,000 shares of IMAX and sold all but 500 at $5 per share. They traded above $20 recently. I owned so much that I got scared out of the position. My lesson there was to know what you own and why you own it, so you can hang tough when the market tests you. I also sold Ford stock around $2 per share, when I saw General Motors and Chrysler slump, locking in a loss from my purchase price at $20. Again, panicking is bad so aim to really know what you own, so when the idiots say sell, you hang on. J.S., onlineThe Fool Responds: Thats a good lesson. Too many people lose money in the market because they get impatient or scared. The more you understand your holdings, the better youll be able to distinguish between temporary challenges and long-term problems. If youre rather confident that a company will be worth much more in the future, hang on. Ford has recently been trading around $10 per share. The Motley Fool TakeAn Appealing Equipment MakerCrane maker Manitowoc (NYSE: MTW) has been performing pretty well, but its shares have taken a beating. That presents an opportunity for long-term investors. The crane business has bounced back strongly after the financial crisis. In Manitowocs fourth quarter, sales growth hit the highest year-over-year rate since 2007, and new orders climbed to levels last seen in 2008.The company kicked off 2012 on a solid note, too, with the divisions first-quarter backlog value reaching its highest level since the recession. A recovery seems to be under way, with data from the U.S. Census Bureau finding the dollar value of total construction put in place in March and February 6 percent and 5.8 percent higher, respectively, than last year.Manitowocs other business, food-service equipment, seems poised for a good year, too, thanks in part to new products.The company does carry a lot of debt, but it has initiatives in place to reduce that. Its growth plans are robust as it expands in developing markets; the proportion of revenue Manitowoc is generating from Asian markets has doubled over the last five years. It recently became the first company to make rough-terrain cranes in Brazil. The time is ripe, as the nation gears up for the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics. Give this stock some consideration. Name That CompanyI trace my roots back to 1927, when two cousins founded me in Michigan. Today Im a premier residential furniture maker.

Along with my flagship brand, my other names include Bauhaus, American Drew, Kincaid, Lea, Hammary and Last weeks trivia answerTracing my roots back to 1858, Im the product of a big 1989 merger that created what was then the worlds second-largest pharmaceutical company. In my past, youll find a laxative mineral salt, Clairol hair products, Vitalis hair tonic for men and Mum underarm deodorant. I introduced the first electric toothbrush in 1961. In the 1940s, I had the largest penicillin production plant in the world. I rake in more than $21 billion annually, and spend close to $4 billion on research and development.

How should I invest the money Ive saved for that? T.J., Jacksonville, Ill.AUnfortunately, you should consider the place thats usually best for long-term appreciation, the stock market, to be off-limits. In the short run, the market can go up or down sharply. In the long run, it has averaged roughly 10 percent per year, but even that is an average, not a guarantee. Dont risk money youll need within three years (or even five or more years, to be more conservative) in stocks, or you may end up able to afford only a corrugated aluminum shack. Keep short-term moolah in a safer place, such as CDs or money market funds, to protect your principal. Learn more about short-term savings at and bankrate. com.***QWhat are frontier funds? E.F., Escondido, Calif.ATheyre geographically focused mutual funds. Youve probably heard of emerging markets, which typically include Brazil, Russia, India and China (sometimes referred to as the BRIC countries). Those have been rapidly growing economies, unlike the slower and steadier economies of the more developed world (think Japan, Europe and the U.S.). For those whod like to invest in countries that are even less developed than the BRIC ones, there are frontier funds. They focus on smaller, often riskier, economies, such as Qatar, Lebanon, Poland, Peru, Kazakhstan and Namibia. Be careful with these funds they tend to charge relatively high fees, and theyre likely to be rather volatile, as many of the nations theyre invested in arent too stable. Remember that you can invest in the whole world market via a simple (and often inexpensive) total stock market fund.Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us but our whole operation of Miracle baseball, he explains. The only way our Twitter count is effective is if we provide value a sentiment that echoes the thinking of Ms. Scott and Ms. Beard. So every time the Miracle tweets, followers learn about players or events in a game, as expected, but also about what the team does in the community, or what special deals or celebrations may becoming along for followers. We want people to react and re-tweet what we put out there, says Mr. Sharp.Farming it outWhile those are all local approaches, a major company such as McDonalds use Twitter the same way, on a local or regional basis. But the company hires an ad agency a marketing and communications firm to do it, in this case Fahlgren Mortine, with offices scattered around the Midwest and in Fort Lauderdale. @McDonalds_SWFL is local we want consumers in Charlotte, Collier, Hendry and Lee counties, plus part of Sarasota County, to be aware of McDonalds news, offers and events, explains Amy Bagner, a communications expert for Fahlgren Mortine. Regional owner-operators establish business strategies and directions what promotions to offer, what charities to support, who to sponsor and so on and Fahlgren Motine tweets. Were doing our job well when we engage a follower in conversation about who they like to share a meal with, or how a Rolo Mcflurry can make all the problems of your day vanish. The strategy requires joining other businesses in the area Miracle baseball, for example to make hay while the sun shines. Which is why McDonalds recently sponsored a Family Fitness Night with the Miracle. Prior to the game, we conducted a week-long trivia event where we gave away tickets to the game via Twitter. Twitter becomes a tool in charity fundraising too last year during one 11-day period, recalls Ms. Bagner, McDonalds owners in the region donated a quarter to a charity for every new Twitter follower. Asked how much is too much, she replied this way: McDonalds is fortunate to have a strong, loyal customer base in Southwest Florida. Our goal is to engage these consumers in a dialogue about a brand they love. Its a balance we want to be considerate of their time but keep McDonalds top of mind. All of it will change, of course. Its an evolution. And all of its an evolution for everybody. Who knows whats around the corner? The key is to be adaptable, notes Ms. Beard at the Naples Botanical Garden. The advice I have for others, suggests the Miracles Mr. Sharp, is dont be afraid to embrace Twitter, but have a plan that enhances what your business is trying to achieve. In other words: Dont get jittery about the new technology, just get twittery. (NOTE: Gulf Coast Symphony promoter Amy Padilla is married to Osvaldo Padilla, Fort Myers editor of Florida Weekly.)

Heres to ladies night, always on an off-night, never the good nights, always a Tuesday or a Thursday some throwaway day of the week. Women elbowdeep at the bar and the men absent until later, until after the ladies have consumed enough two-for-one beers or dollar-off margaritas to make them socially lubricated, when the tight groups of females have loosened and the toasts turned from, Who needs a man? to Tonight were getting lucky. Fish in a barrel, the guys might say. They show up with their fresh-shaved faces wearing department store cologne and offer to buy one of the women a drink not the prettiest, maybe, but the one who looks most fun and suddenly the group splinters. What happens to those ladies scooped up by men in button-down shirts? The usual: a first date followed by breathless phone calls to the same group of girlfriends to report every detail. What did you wear? her friends will ask. What kind of car does he drive? Then, the uncertainty. The will-he-orwont-he-call. Dont worry, hell call, the friends say. Theyll be the first to know when he asks her on a second date. Later, over ribeye and baked potatoes at some chain restaurant T.G.I. Fridays or Applebees shell sit stiffly as the man drones on about his job, as he talks and talks and talks, and shell think, Do I have lettuce stuck in my teeth? When he pauses for breath, hell ask if hes boring her and shell smile a close-lipped smile (because of the lettuce) and shake her head. Shell eye his jawline and evaluate his nose, wondering about the potential for cuteness of their genetically blended offspring. If all goes well, not just at dinner but later, that night and the next week and the week after that, theyll tumble into a life together, and although he will be the person she goes to bed with at night with and wakes up to in the morning, shell still confide her worries and expectations in her girlfriends because there is something to be said for those women who have known her for so long. The relationship will go the usual way: marriage, kids, a house with furniture not bought from Ikea until it ends, as marriages always do, in divorce or death. Nothing lasts forever. And when her children have grown and her husband has left or died, shell gather up her friends for another ladies night. I saw one of these get-togethers during a recent night out with my beau. At the table across from us there were five women in their early 60s, dressed well but not extravagantly, the kind of women who have worked hard their whole lives and now seem to be enjoying retirement. One of them raised her glass to the woman next to her. Happy birthday, she said and the others joined in. I watched as they laughed and talked easily together, and I couldnt help but wonder if they were relieved that the early days were over, that all the worrying and searching had passed, that they had made their lives and survived and were with good friends once again.

PAGE 56 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2012 the musical as Footloose meets Elvis meets Twelfth Night. Theres a lot of the tip of the hat to Shakespeare, she says. Although the Bard and the King might sound like a nightmare mash-up to some, it not only works, but works well, she insists. Musical director Charles Fornara, dressed in a T-shirt declaring Grumpy on the front, is anything but as he explains: Its the music of Elvis, but its not one of those crappy jukebox musicals. They didnt shoehorn the songs in. They make organic sense. None of these songs are not where they belong in the show. Its brilliant. The playwright, Joe DiPietro, currently has two shows on Broadway: Memphis, which received a Tony Award for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, and Nice Work If You Can Get It, which received the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Book of a Musical and was nominated for a Tony for Best Book of a Musical. I hate the word clever, Mr. Fornara continues. It always makes me think of something micromanaged and contrived, but I find (this musical) to be really clever. I love it. Its a show I didnt know at all. Hes using the same orchestrations as Broadway, he says, including two guitarists in his 12-piece orchestra. Tonight, the cast is doing what they affectionately call a dance-and-sing rehearsing just the songs and the choreography, skipping over the dialogue. Its based on the sit-and-sing, Ms. Dunnagan explains, where performers sit and rehearse the songs for a show. But we found that if theyre up and moving, it seems to help them, she says. Shes watching the show from midtheater, along with hair and make-up designer Carol Smith, choreographer Dawn Lebrecht Fornara, stage manager Rhoda Pugh and assistant director Charles Kolmann. Craig Walck, in charge of sound, sits in the back, behind the soundboard.Love and marriageThe musicals a little difficult to follow with the dialogue excised. Loosely based on Shakespeares Twelfth Night, it tells the story of Chad (Chris Valente), a guitar-playing roustabout just released from jail. He rides into a small town and meets Natalie (Alana Neuman), the young mechanic daughter of the gas station owner. When most of the girls in town including Natalie fall for Chad, she disguises herself as a man, Ed, and becomes Chads sidekick. Natalies in love with Chad but playing Ed, because Chad seems not to pay attention to her unless shes a guy, Ms. Dunnagan says. Then, Ms. Smith adds, Its everybody falling in love with the boy whos really a girl. There are various cases of unrequited love and, ultimately, several marriages. This is very Shakespearean, too everybody getting married in the end, Ms. Dunnagan says, adding that Mr. DiPietro the playwright does a great job with the overall arc and theme: Take a chance on love. The shows set right around 1955, which is just the start of the Civil Rights movement, she adds. He deals quietly but very cleverly with the civil rights issues, with interracial issues, with blacks and whites mixing. He also spreads out into a fabulous love theme with Chad.The show takes shapeMr. Fornaras hunkered down in the orchestra pit, conducting the musicians. Occasionally he climbs out and roams the theater, checking the sound balance. At one point he stops the cast because he cant hear the vocals in his speaker. This is a very busy show for the ensemble, Ms. Dunnagan says. When theyre not on stage, theyre backstage singing. Ninety percent of the performers are graduates from The Naples Players KidzAct program, she adds. The rehearsal is running fairly smoothly, but then theres a glitch and the actors miss their cue. Everyone stares at the empty stage. This is my favorite part of the show, Mr. Fornara says, joking. Dont you like the existential statement Im trying to make? Ms. Dunnagan replies. The actors, belatedly realizing their cue, rush out on stage. Its a little less than two weeks before opening night, and this is the time to work out the kinks and tweak the show. But Mr. Fornara and Ms. Dunnagan seem pleased with what theyre seeing on the stage. Ms. Fornara, who is married to the musical director, is also pleased. She admits that creating the choreography was a challenge, initially, because its not a show where the musical numbers move the plot. There are just some numbers that are kickass dancing. Its super fun. Because the music is varied in style, the dance numbers have to be varied, too. Theres like a million songs in the show, so you want to make them all different and distinct, and not have the same choreography, she says. There are all styles of dance in this: tango, jive, a little bit of Fosse. Theres a swing step in Jailhouse Rock. I even put a little hip-hop into it. The energy in all of the music is incredible. Songs in the show include Elvis hits such as Hound Dog, Teddy Bear, Its Now or Never, Heartbreak Hotel, Dont Be Cruel and of course, All Shook Up. Though this isnt a dress rehearsal, some of the cast members wear black leather jackets, including Mr. Valente as Chad. The character of Chad, Ms. Dunnagan points out, is Marlon Brando, James Dean not just Elvis. Hes that iconic figure from the s, the young rebel. His foil is Mayor Matilda, portrayed by Naples Players veteran Ellen Cooper. She thinks Chads corrupting the town and leading everyone into immorality. She performs her big solo, Devil in Disguise, drawing chuckles from those watching, even though theyve seen it dozens of times before. As the rehearsal draws to an end, the stage explodes with singing and dancing as the entire cast performs Burning Love. Our audiences will love this, Ms. Dunnagan predicts. You know why? Its innocent fun. Theyll love the Elvis music. All Shook Up is full of fun music and has a fresh new look.

The stars will align for the 2013 Naples Winter Wine Festival SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Naples Children & Education Foundation hosts the world-renowned Naples Winter Wine Festival Jan. 25-27. The theme for the 2013 festival, When Stars Align, is a nod to the many stars involved, from celebrity vintners and chefs to donors, sponsors, volunteers, nearly 600 guests and the children who benefit from their generosity. Chairing the 2013 festivities are NCEF trustees Bob and Terry Edwards. Mr. Edwards is the cosenior partner and senior portfolio manager of a Naples-based investment management group that is responsible for managing client assets in excess of $2 billion. Recognized by Registered Rep among Americas Top 100 Financial Advisors, he is a frequent industry speaker and has been ranked nationally for peer group performance of investment portfolios managed. He and his business partner and their team have also been ranked by Barrons, Lipper and Research magazine. A resident of Naples for more than 40 years, he serves on the boards of the Patty & Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art and the Philharmonic Center for the Arts. Mrs. Edwards serves on the board of the Shelter for Abused Women & Children and NCEFs grant committee. Since its inception in 2001, the Naples Winter Wine Festival has raised $107 million for underprivileged and at-risk children in Collier County. Proceeds have helped 150,000 children through grants to childrens charities and collaborative funding of major projects including a pediatric dental center and early learning center. Wine Spectator has ranked the festival the most successful charity wine auction in the nation since 2004, and the Luxury Institute places it among the top 10 arts and entertainment events for wealthy Americans. Festival ticket prices are $8,500 per couple and $20,000 for reserved seating at the same vintner dinner for two couples.

ARTS COMMENTARYRelishing an awards show worthy of its own award Asking friends and acquaintances if they watched the Tony Awards the other week has garnered two responses: Of course! and Huh? Its a great litmus test not to gauge friendship, but others passion for theater. If you missed it, well, I feel sorry for you. The show was just a swift-moving, well-oiled machine. It was almost as if the producers realized that people today have the attention span of gnats. It was nothing like watching the Academy Awards, where, 10 hours into the ceremony, it feels as if youve been watching for weeks and they still havent named Best Actor, Best Actress or Best Picture. The charming Neil Patrick Harris was superior as host of the Tony Awards show for his third time. His lines were clever, the jokes funny. The show opened with a number from The Book of Mormon, last years Tony Award winner for Best Musical. The affable Mr. Harris then welcomed everyone to the 66th annual Tony Awards Or, as we like to call it, Fifty Shades of Gay, he quipped. He then went into a big opening number hypothesizing what it would be like if life were more like theater. The song was written by David Javerbaum and Adam Schlesinger. (The two co-wrote the lyrics for the Broadway show Cry-Baby. Mr. Javerbaum was a comedy writer for both David Letterman and Jon Stewart; Mr. Schlesinger is also the bassist for Fountains of Wayne.) And what if all your questions had rhyming answers/And you never left home without your back-up dancers? Mr. Harris sang. What if life were tightly written/And divided into nifty little scenes/and then apropos of nothing/ There were crazy dance routines.He went on to sing about the joy of being able to call in sick and have an understudy stand in for you, and how itd be wonderful if life came with an intermission and a simple motivation and a plot.The legendary Patti LuPone even made a cameo appearance in the song as Mr. Harris neighbor. Dressed to the nines, complete with elbow-length white gloves, she pushed a lawn mower across the stage while singing a couple of lines. The show had many humorous moments, including Mr. Harris hanging upside down like Spider-Man and a woman in the audience body-surfing down a row of seated attendees. Then there were Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creators of the aforementioned Book of Mormon and TVs South Park. As presenters for this years Best Musical Award, they pretended to be pretentious Broadway theater insiders looking down their noses at everyone else and speaking in affected, arch tones. The Tonys were a golden opportunity to see selections from musicals on Broadway, including Jesus Christ Superstar, Once, The Gershwins Porgy and Bess, Nice Work if You Can Get It, Newsies, Evita and Follies. I hadnt been excited about Once coming to Broadway, but I was surprised to find myself terrifically moved by their number, Walking on Moonbeams, which also featured actors playing acoustic guitars, a concertina, a mandolin and what looked like a ukelele. Live music on stage you cant beat it. Even if you have no plans to go to Broadway to see any of these shows or performers, its quite likely some will play here in the future. And you may have already seen some of these performers locally. Ms. LuPone has performed at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts in Naples a number of times. Tony winner Audra McDonald, starring in The Gershwins Porgy and Bess, has appeared at The Phil, too. And Tony-nominated Kelli OHara, who performed Someone to Watch Over Me on the awards show and is now starring in Broadways Nice Work If You Can Get It, gave four cabaret performances in The Phils Daniels Pavilion in 2010. Laura Osnes, who played Bonnie in Bonnie and Clyde on Broadway, and was nominated for Best Performance in a Leading Role in a Musical, performed the role at the Asolo Theatre in Sarasota in the fall of 2010. And Christopher Plummer, who presented two awards, was honored at the Sarasota Film Festival in April 2011, where his film Beginners was screened and where he was interviewed by David Edelstein. When he presented the Tony to Nina Ariandra for Best Performance in a Leading Role in a Play for Venus in Fur, she squealed with joy. Then she said to Mr. Plummer: Sir, you were my first crush. When that whistle was blown in The Sound of Music and here she stomped her foot, as his character would, you made my day! Mr. Plummer looked simultaneously amused and pleased. The show ended with another song by Javerbaum and Schlesinger. With some lyrics obviously written during the award ceremony itself, it namechecked people who had won.Mr. Harris, claiming he didnt have time to sing the closing song, started singing: If I had time, Id sing a little song recapping these awards/A jazzy ditty set to introspective chords/With lyrics that would cite who won and lost tonight/ With jokes wed have to write mid-show/ Theyd all be on topic and each one would rhyme/But theres no time. The remaining lyrics went on to cite exactly the winners and losers, and then complained more about how they were out of time. The lyrics were so smart, Ive watched both the opening and closing numbers on YouTube. If you missed them, you can still see the entire 2012 Tony Awards at www. or tony_awards/video through July 3. Critics Choice final selectionsThe Phil has announced the books Dr. Elaine Newton will cover in this coming season at her popular Critics Choice lecture series. They are: The Submission by Amy Waldman, Nov. 15 and 17 No Time Like the Present by Nadine Gordimer, Dec. 6 and 8 State of Wonder by Ann Patchett, Jan. 10 and12 Girl Reading by Katie Ward, Feb. 7 & 9 (Dr. Newton will also interview the author) The Cats Table by Michael Ondaatje, March 14 and 16 Gold by Chris Cleave, April 11 and 13The Submission, State of Wonder and The Cats Table have recently been released in paperback. The original summer reading list of 39 titles (from which Dr. Newton chose the final six) is available from the Phil at Stealing successIn May, I interviewed artist/writer/ blogger Austin Kleon about his newspaper blackout poems and his book, Steal Like an Artist. My pieces ran in the May 24-30 edition of Florida Weekly. Since then, Steal Like an Artist has enjoyed three weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List Paperback Advice & Misc. list. (No, I cant claim any credit, unfortunately.) Last week and this week, it was No. 14 and No. 15, respectively. The book was also excerpted in the June/July issue of American Craft magazine, which devoted four full pages to it. Mr. Kleons 20-city tour is obviously paying off. m i a d S w ay t h eater i ns id ers l oo ki n g d own n oses at ever y one else and ng in affected, arch e Ton y s were a n opportunity to se l ec ti o n s fr o m a ls on Broadwa y i n g Jesus Christ s tar, Once, G ershwins Por g y e ss Nice Work if an Get It NewsE vita and Follies. adnt bee n e x c it e d Once comin g to w ay, but I was sur to find m y self c all y moved e ir number, in g on n beams al so f e aa c t o r s g acous itars, a r tina a o lin and l oo k e d uk e l e l e m u s i c o n you be at i t. n if you n o plans t o Broado see any se s h o w s p erformts q uite some will h ere in the d y ou ma y a lready seen o f these pe r r s locall y.

Writer/director Wes Anderson (Rushmore) is as quirky as ever here, but the story is more heartfelt than usual, making this one of his best films to date. Rated PG-13.Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World (Steve Carell, Keira Knightley, Patton Oswalt) With an asteroid set to destroy earth, Dodge (Carell) and Penny (Knightley) help one another fulfill last wishes. Its an intriguing premise, but a hackneyed second half undoes all its charm. Rated R.People Like Us (Chris Pine, Elizabeth Banks, Olivia Wilde) After his father dies, Sam (Pine) is asked to track down his long-lost sister (Banks) and nephew and give them the $150,000 bequeated to them. The problem is that Sam needs the money and cant bring himself to hand it over. Although his actions are understandable, the fact that the premise hinges around a one-sentence lie is too thin for the film to hold up for two hours. Rated PG-13. CAPSULES Is it worth $15 (3D)? No Is it worth $10? YesBrave features a different kind of princess for a different kind of Disney fairy tale. Far from the feminine innocence of Snow White and Cinderella, Merida (Kelly Macdonald) is a Scottish lass who thinks and acts like one of the boys, which makes it all the more torturous when shes expected to act like a lady. That her story is told with strong Pixar animation, decent comic relief and genuine warmth is befitting for the stellar role model shes bound to become for girls all over the world. The daughter of a king (Billy Connolly) who once fought off a horrific bear, and with bright red hair, a feisty attitude and excellent archery skills, Merida would be a handful for any man. Against her wishes, her mother Elinor (Emma Thompson) invites three suitors to their kingdom to win Meridas hand in marriage. They all fail; Merida escapes and asks a witch (Julie Walters) to cast a spell that will change her mothers mind about not letting Merida determine her own future. The spell works, but not without side effects. What happens from there follows conventional fairy tale storytelling, but does so in a way that always has surprises around the corner. This PG-rated film is a story full of imagination and wonder. Theres nothing girly about it and thats a great thing. To dumb it down or worse, add a male lead wouldve been a cop out. But will pulling no punches with its protagonist make a difference? This is the first time a female has been at the center of a Pixar story (as opposed to toys, a rat, a fish, cars, etc.), and history tells us that female-driven fairy tales without a Prince Charming are a risky box office proposition. Remember The Princess and the Frog? It wasnt Pixar, but it was Disney and it was extremely well done. Too bad nobody saw it. Another problem Brave will have, aside from keeping boys interested throughout, is that theres little here for adults. The humor is cutesy, not sophisticated Meridas three rapscallion little brothers provide the biggest laughs, and its all kids humor. And the theme of be careful what you wish for is beaten into our heads by directors Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman and Steve Purcell, leaving no doubt that the message is especially intended for the films younger target demo. Lastly, the 3D animation is not spectacular, so no need to pay the up-charge. Brave wont rank among Pixars best efforts, but it is the studios boldest film to date in terms of going a little darker in tone and centering on a female heroine. Time will tell if the risk pays off, but itd certainly be nice for young girls to have one of their own to cheer for instead of talking animals. >> Although the exact time period is not revealed, judging by the food and attire, Brave takes place no later than the 1600s, making this the rst Pixar lm to be a period piece.

Crown/Random House. 384 pages. $24. By now, readers of my columns know that I view Lisa Unger as one of our foremost younger novelists writing today. She works with, not merely within, the conventions of genre in amazing ways. She probes the psychological dimensions of her characters with tremendous empathy and acumen. Her plotting reminds me of fine architecture, at once functional and esthetically dazzling. On top of all this, she is a superb stylist. The richness of Heartbroken comes from many sources. One of these is the novels insights into troubled family dynamics. Another is Ms. Ungers ability to etch vivid, fully realized characters across the spectrum of age and experience. Yet another is her uncanny skill at mood-building, in this case the several moods of Heart Island, the rampant moodiness of teenagers, the alternating moods internal and external of sunlight and storm. Fortyish Kate, gifted by her late Aunt Caroline with not only Carolines private journals but also those of Lana, Carolines mother, has come through on the other side of her only-a-mom existence. She has fashioned a novel rooted in those journals, which hold family secrets, and the book is about to be published. Reluctantly, Kate is bringing her family for one of the annual trips to the familys summer home on a private island on a lake in upstate New York. She will try once again to establish a healthy relationship with her harshly judgmental mother, Birdie Burke, who is the human embodiment of the rocky retreat. Kates teenage daughter Chelsea, persuaded that shell have fun because she can bring along her promiscuous best friend Lulu, subdues her reluctance. Chelseas younger half-brother Brendan has an accident and will come up later with Sean, Brendans father. Sean, after a bad year in real estate, has a fantastic new listing to put on the market that will delay his arrival on Heart Island for a day or two. He really doesnt want to go at all. He and everyone else fear the encounter with the rigid, endlessly disapproving Birdie. s s p n C UNGER


THE SUN SETS ON SUMMER BOREDOM Located just north of Vanderbilt Beach Road on U.S. 41 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2012 C13 Taste our lighter side.Fresh taste and lower-calories wrapped in organic wheat wrap bread. Mediterranean Wrap320 caloriesper whole wrapTurkey Wrap339 caloriesSpinach Veggie Wrap359 calories Sarasota Fort Myers Naples On a separate plot track, readers meet 20ish Emily, a college dropout waitress who is becoming fearful about her relationship with Dean, a no-account slacker who flatters and frightens her into doing his bidding. Disaster strikes when Dean and his friend Brad connive to have Emily assist them in robbing the restaurant where she works. Now theyre on the lam, having seriously injured Carol, the owner, and killed another employee. Emily had told Dean about a remote lake island where they could hide out. She remembers having had some good times there as a child. Kate and Emily, then, are headed to the same place. For Kate, the journey carries the heavy weight of obligation; for Emily, it carries a fragile hope of escape and, somewhat irrationally, of redemption. Readers will have to find out why Emilys last name is Burke. Though this novel is of average length, it provided astonishingly detailed understandings of many different characters. Over and over again, Ms. Unger defies the convention of employing a single, controlling point of view. We peer deeply into the contrasting psyches and souls of major and minor characters, including, rather surprisingly, Joe Burke, Birdies generally absent husband.Somehow, Ms. Unger makes it all work. Rather than ending up with diffuseness and disorientation, she achieves strange harmonies, modulation and amplification. The journals of Lana and Caroline add two more points of view. As the tension mounts, the author sets violence of action against violence of emotion, the need to give against the need to control, the pain of betrayal against the capacity for forgiveness. Tempests of all kinds rage across Heart Island, which seems to be populated by ghosts as well as desperate human beings. In an odd way, Heartbroken reminds me of Shakespeares The Tempest, not only in its multifaceted exploitation of the island setting, but also in its concerns with nature and nurture. Whether its the island that is haunted or the characters who sojourn there, readers will be haunted for a long time by this profound and heart-pounding thriller.

Consider the accompanying deal from a European championship match between Norway and France. At the first table, with a Norwegian pair North-South, six spades was reached on the bidding sequence shown. West led the king of diamonds, and declarer breezed through the play to bring in the slam with an overtrick for a score of 1,460 points. He won the diamond lead with the ace, finessed the jack of spades at trick two, led another spade and collected the rest of the tricks without even breathing hard. At the second table, with France North-South this time, the same contract was reached, and again the opening lead was a diamond. But at this table the French declarer played the hand more scientifically and went down as a result. After taking the diamond with the ace, he was unwilling to settle for a mere 50 percent chance of making the contract by relying exclusively on a trump finesse. Instead he decided to play the A-K-Q of hearts in the hope that the opposing hearts were divided 3-3 (a 36 percent chance), in which case he could discard his diamond loser on the third round of hearts. He also had the added chance that even if the hearts broke 4-2, he could still fall back on the trump finesse. All factors considered, this gave him about a 2-to-1 chance to make the slam. Unfortunately, West ruffed the second heart lead and cashed the queen of diamonds, and South went down one. Sometimes, a little superior knowledge can be a dangerous thing!

It is a figure made from a flat piece of wood carved to make a tall flat person to stand in a corner of an empty room. The edges of the board were beveled so they would not be seen from the front. There are boards attached to the back to make an easel that propped the figure up a short distance from a wall or chair. The figure was painted with oil paint and covered with varnish so cleverly it looked like a live person or animal. The figure was put in a dark area at the top of a stair, the end of a hall or a corner near a door. Some were made to look like household help, a sweeping maid, a seated girl peeling apples, a maid carrying a tray with food. Some were soldiers. Many were men, women, boys or girls dressed in the expensive clothes of the day. Each held a sword, book, bird, flowers or other appropriate object. A few looked like poor peasants. Dogs and cats also were made as dummy boards and placed near a fireplace or chair. There were even some figures that looked like real gardeners that were put outside. These are rare today because the weather damaged them. The dummy boards are hard to find today, but an antique pair sold recently for $6,000, and a single one for $950. Q: My aunt gave me a sterlingsilver telephone dialer that came from Tiffany. It is in its original box with a card from Tiffany that tells what it is and how to use it. The box says Tiffany & Co., Fifth Avenue at 57 Street, New York. Can you tell me something about this? A: Telephone dialers were used to keep fingernails from breaking when dialing a rotary phone. They look a little like the handle of a spoon with a small knob at the end that can be inserted into the holes on the dial in order to turn the dial. Rotary dials were first made about 1900 and were standard on phones made in the 1920s to the 1960s. The first push-b utton phones were made in 1941 but were not available commercially until 1963. Tiffany no longer makes the telephone dialers. A Tiffany sterling-silver telephone dialer was shown in the 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffanys. When Holly and Paul go shopping at Tiffanys, they decide not to buy the telephone dialer, which cost $6.75, but pay to have a Cracker Jack ring engraved at Tiffanys instead. Today KOVELS: ANTIQUES Dummy boards: Collectibles that keep you company a e b a $ This dummy board is a little girl holding a bird in her hand. She is dressed in 17th-century style. A hinged board that is nailed to the back helps her stand up. She was bought at an auction in New York in the 1960s for $100 and has been in a hall corner ever since.

The box and card add $50. Q: I have had a childs silver Spirit of St. Louis ring since I was 8 years old. And I was 8 in 1927, the year Lindbergh flew solo across the Atlantic Ocean. The ring pictures Lindberghs airplane on the top and has the words New York above the plane and Paris below. What is my ring worth today? A: Your ring is a known souvenir of Lindberghs famous flight. If its in tiptop shape, it could sell for close to $250. Dings, bends and scratches would drop the price down to well below $100. Q: I have an old drum with Union Drum Manufacturing Co. No 98 West Baltimore St., Baltimore Md. printed inside. The drum has the usual 13 stars, but no other markings. Any history or price information will be appreciated. A: Union Drum Manufacturing Co. made drums for the Union Army during the Civil War. Drums were an important part of a martial band. The music served to motivate soldiers before and after fighting on the battlefield. Boys under the age of 16 enlisted in the Army as field drummers. Condition and verified history determine the price. A Union Drum Manufacturing Co. drum in fair condition with the name of the original drummer could sell for $2,000-$3,000. With no name it could sell for $300-$500. Q: My parents left me a houseful of antiques, and I dont know what theyre worth. I found a local appraiser, but she wants $500 to come to my house. Is this standard? What do you suggest I do?A: We receive a lot of questions like yours and are preparing a report on how to deal with inheriting an estate, whether large or small, valuable or not so valuable. There is no national accreditation agency for appraisers of antiques, but you can still ask appraisers about their training, experience, references, hourly rate and if they belong to a national appraisal association. And you can call a few appraisers before you hire one. An appraiser should not charge a fee for simply coming to your house. Tell the appraiser how many antiques you would like to have appraised and ask about an hourly rate. Do you want a written or oral appraisal? A legitimate appraiser should never offer to buy anything. You can find links to national appraisal associations and various appraisers on our website, The website and many books list hundreds of thousands of prices of antiques and collectibles to use for research.Q: Could you tell me what an original NFL Jeff Garcia figure is worth? It dates from when he was a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. A: McFarlane Toys of Tempe, Ariz., issued a 7-inch figure of Jeff Garcia in 2002. Garcia, now 42, played for the 49ers from 1999 to 2003. If your figure is in its unopened original package, it would sell for $35 to $40. Its worth less than half if you have an unwrapped figure. Tip: Never try to clean a doll with polish or wax. It will put a layer of wax on the surface, making it almost impossible to repaint the dolls face.

Its the kind of place where you want to slow down and savor several courses of food and several glasses of wine, though it will come at a price. ($14.50 for a single crab cake? Really?) The menu ranges from simple comfort food (pot roast or roasted chicken and grapes) to more complex creations (pork tenderloin with spiced cherries and couscous with toasted pumpkin seeds). Either way you go, you wont be disappointed. Even side dishes a mlange of English peas, sugarsnap peas and fresh fava beans sauted in butter 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 2011Fernandez the Bull, 1201 Piper Blvd., Naples; 254-9855 This restaurant has thrived for years at its 1265 Airport Road location. Now, with its sleek second location, even more people can enjoy the authentic Cuban cuisine served up by the hospitable Fernandez family and staff. I can recommend the Cuban nachos, an inventive mix of thinly sliced fried plantains, savory chicken, cheese sauce, capers and parsley (plan to share this one); calamari in a well-seasoned tomato sauce with pepper and onions, a refreshing departure from fried calamari; ropa vieja, a classic dish of shredded flank steak in a tomato sauce with peppers and onions; and shrimp and scallops in white wine, garlic and capers. Yuca in creamy garlic sauce, black beans and yellow rice and sweet fried plantains were great sides. For dessert, you cant go wrong with the flan or the tres leches cake. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2010IM Tapas, 965 Fourth Ave. N., Naples; 403-8272 These small plates are packed with flavor and style. Each looks like a work of art and possesses big, fresh flavors that reveal the passionate dedication of its inspired creators, chefs Isabel Polo Pozo and Mary Shipman, both of whom are experts in this inspired Spanish cuisine. A polished staff and stylish dining room add to the warmth and conviviality of a meal at this little off-the-beatenpath gem. If theres a less-than-wondrous dish on the menu, I havent found it yet, despite several visits. Among my favorites are chorizo in cider; beets napoleon; garlic-laced white anchovies; diver scallops on octopus slivers; spinach wilted a la Catalana; wild bonito with pomegranate seeds and pomegranate foam; and a plate of stellar artisanal cheeses. Its situated a few miles north of the citys tonier dining areas, but it surpasses many of the more high profile establishments in both cuisine and style. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2010Pagellis Italiano, Coconut Point, 8017 Plaza Del Lago, Estero; 226-4242 Italian classics are served with a twist in a sprawling setting that evokes an outdoor plaza with textured plaster and lots of metal work. Inspired by the Pagelli familys Sicilian roots, the menu covers a lot of territory, including hearth-baked pizza, grilled meats and seafood as well as the usual Italian pastas and baked dishes. A warning about the small plates: The crunchy prosciutto-arugula flatbread and rustic sausage-roasted potato plate we had were ample enough to serve as entrees (and both were delicious). Entrees were equally well conceived and executed. The veal and sea scallop rosemary with capellini was a most unexpected pairing; meat and seafood were cooked perfectly, and the rosemary added depth to the tomato sauce. A steak and shrimp combo was also well done, though the peppercorn sauce paired with the beef didnt bring much to the plate. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere:Reviewed September 2011Swan River Seafood Restaurant and Fish Market, 3741 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 403-7000 North meets South at Swan River, which has been serving the best of New Englands catch beside the treasures of Southwest Florida waters for more than 10 years. It captures the spirit of the Cape, with its nautical blue and white interior, oars and sh utters on the walls and menu offerings of whole belly clams, broiled scrod and lobster rolls. The offerings are complemented by Florida stone crab claws (in season), Gulf grouper and Southern oysters. Appetizers of fried oysters and steamed clams proved that the kitchen has mastered varying cooking methods. And you wont find food buried under piles of fruity salsas and painted with colorful drizzles of infused oil or creamy coulis; its seafood cooked simply in order to showcase the quality of the main ingredient. Nowhere was that more evident than with the Maine gray sole, which was broiled to perfection with only white wine, lemon and butt er complementing the delicate flavor of the fish. Full bar.
