A20 No more faux pasAdvice for avoiding social media business blunders. B1 Goodwill Industries famous used retail stores continue to grow in step with the social service missions they largely fund. People are looking to buy more thrifty items, and at the same time, the need for our services has gone up, says Madison Mitchell, a spokesperson for Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida. Two new store openings this month in Collier and Lee counties, and a boutique-style shop planned for downtown Fort Myers in the first half of next year, will make 27 retail locations for the Southwest Florida nonprofit. Goodwill headquarters are also moving next year, to a larger building in the Tice area east of Fort Myers that will house administration offices and recycling and document-shredding operations as well as a retail outlet. (The move) gets us a little more central to our five counties, CEO Tom Feurig says. Im a big one to believe Goodwill can be a part of revitalization, and I think well do that in the Tice area, he adds. Goodwill provides job training and placement, housing and transportation, youth education and other programs throughout Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties. The number of Southwest Floridians served by Goodwill surged during the recession, from 6,600 in 2006 to 23,000 in 2011. The new retail stores will assist avid bargain hunters like Cape Coral resident Stacy Staggs, who traveled to Naples on Friday, Sept. 7, for the grand opening of the newest Goodwill bookstore and donation center in Southwest Florida, at 1795 N inth St. N. (U.S. 41). They have a great selection and everythings organized, says Mr. Staggs, who is already a regular at Goodwills flagship bookstore on McGregor Boulevard in South Fort Myers. That one opened in 2010 and has a similar look, Goodwill expands throughout the SWFL regionPrezsSEE GOODWILL, A14 SEE ALLBRITTEN, A8 BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.com JEFF ALLBRITTEN IS A LOT OF THINGS, BUT SLOW ISNT ONE OF them.

So I dug up some worms, and we walked across the road to the creek. And then I remembered: no fishing license. I wanted to go build a development on 1,500 acres the other day put in some golf courses and a few thousand condos along with 50 homes, and get rich and then I remembered: no building permits. Never mind, either, that I dont own the land. But what if I did? And what if I want to plant an orange grove or build another house or two on the property I do own by bulldozing my slash pines and oak scrub, with their gopher tortoises and scrub jays well hell, why shouldnt I be able to do that, at least? Its my property and I own it, which is a redundancy worth repeating. Its my property and I own it. Why should anybody else be able to tell me what to do with it? But with those endangered species sitting on the land like warts on a hog, they can. They, aka the guvmint, can tell me to leave it alone. Seems outrageous, doesnt it? Just how much influence should the guvmint have in our lives, anyway? The answer to that simple question lies at the heart of how we will vote in November, or how optimistic we will feel about our country next year. Its a perennial question, a centennial question, a millennial question whatever the size of its ennial, its a big question we have to answer. What about the guvmint? Answer it, and youll see the future. When I was young sometime in the 1800s (or was it only just yesterday in the middle of the 20th century?), there didnt seem to be too much guvmint around. That was a huge misconception on my part, of course. Just because we shot deer without a license, or fished without a license, or burned trash without a license, or built extra rooms on the house without a license, or drove without a license (in the mountains), or carried rifles behind the seat or pistols in holsters riveted to the doors of pickups without a license, or sold food from the side of the road without a license that did not mean the guvmint was not deeply and intimately involved in our lives. After all, Social Security had come in as big guvmint to help poor old people in the 1930s; World War II had come in as big guvmint to help young and old alike put down Nazis and Japanese imperialists in the 1940s; big business and small alike had come in as guvmint to build the interstate highway system and hook us all up by personal vehicle and semi-truck in the 1950s; civil rights, Medicare and a host of related programs had come in as big guvmint to help black people or sick old people in the 1960s, and so on. Guvmint was everywhere. It put in red lights at intersections. It stopped business monopolies so everybody got a chance at the pie. It insisted you couldnt drink and drive even though you had purchased a vehicle for the express purpose of doing so, and supporting an American car manufacturer and an American oil company in the process just because you were such a nice guy. Guvmint made you go to school, and it even built the schools and paid the teachers (not very much). It built the roads to the schools and hired the cops that waited on the sides of those roads so hotshots wouldnt run over you. It paid the firefighters (not very much) who showed up dutifully to entertain you during the fire drill after you pulled the alarm. And it did all of that even though you tried to convince your parents that you already knew everything that you knew things Einstein himself had never imagined or heard of, and therefore none of it was necessary. Guvmint even resurrected the draft and sent some people off to Vietnam, just like their dads. And sure enough, just like their dads, some of them didnt come back. It was never perfect. Everybody knows that about guvmint. But what many dont often know is the answer to this simple question: what or who exactly is the guvmint that does all this? What or who is it who wont let me build my housing development; or fish without a license; or put in a strip mine on some of the last undisturbed wetland even though I own the land, because it might be good for you and future generations if I dont, even though you and future generations dont own the land? Why its you, pal. I blame you. And the lady across the street. And my other neighbors, including the man with the Army Ranger sticker on his Jeep, a retired cop, who wrote me a letter and said that the government was about to take away our guns, and if we let them control any guns even the purchase of a hot-shot semi-automatic assault rifle in which you can file down the sear pin in about five minutes, slap in 30 rounds, and turn it into a machine gun then the government will take all our weapons. This guy is an honorable person, even if he is a little trigger happy. So are the people who manage the community pool and taught my sons to swim, and the exceptional teachers and principals who have guided my little fifth grader from day one, and the Navy commander I know who will soon take the helm of a missile destroyer, and the hardworking, hustling, helpful people in city hall and at the county guvmint offices where Ive almost always received the most courteous, alert service. Its incredible, I tell you whether I have to have a fishing license, or not. Whether I can build a golf course, or not. Our guv-mint excuse me, our government may not be perfect, but its the best in the world. And youre it. So am I. Now what are we going to do?

Its one of the most reliable cliches in American politics. So Gov. Martin OMalley, a Democrat from Maryland, should have been ready with some handy dodge when he was asked the question by Bob Schieffer of Face the Nation. Really, in the circumstance, any circumlocution would do. Instead, OMalley said No, igniting a firestorm with his unadorned, monosyllabic honesty. Which didnt last. Within 24 hours, the skies had brightened, the malaise had lifted, and OMalley was pronouncing the country clearly better off. OMalley can be forgiven for his initial forthrightness. People who make their living coming up with creative ways to avoid questions inconvenient to President Barack Obama didnt do all that much better. Asked twice on Fox News Sunday if Americans are better off, David Axelrod pointedly wouldnt say yes or no. Asked three times on This Week, David Plouffe passed on a direct answer all three times. After getting knocked around for their evasiveness, though, the Obama team recalibrated and decided to answer absolutely to the better-off question. The herald of the new message was none other than the man best-suited to bluster his way through a not-particularly credible statement, Vice President Joe Biden. America is better off today than they left us when they left, Biden told a union rally, before adducing as evidence what he called a bumper sticker: Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive. The catchy bumper sticker doesnt address the better-off question. The query has to do with personal economic well-being. Its a wonderful thing that bin Laden was dispatched, but it doesnt give anyone any additional income. Its terrific for GMs remaining workers that they are still working, but the cost of the car companys bailout some $35 billion makes it a rotten deal for everyone else. A clever bumper sticker cant obscure that real median income has declined $4,300 since January 2009, the unemployment rate has been above 8 percent for 42 straight months, and long-term unemployment is up and labor-force participation is down. The Democrats can say all of this is an accident of timing: The aftereffects of the Bush recession are unfairly counted against their record. But the recovery that they take credit for is also an accident of timing. The economy wasnt going to keep shedding 800,000 jobs a month forever. In fact, the recovery proved dismayingly lackluster. President Obamas signature initiatives a stimulus designed to sate pent-up congressional spending demands, ObamaCare, the hideously complex regulations of Dodd-Frank were irrelevant to or crosswise with promoting a sustained, robust recovery. Now, the president gives himself a grade of incomplete, as if he has much else yet to accomplish. Yet his stated second-term agenda consists only of a tax increase on the wealthy, and getting along with the same congressional Republicans he cant abide. Theres evidently nothing for him to complete, except riding out the consequences of his misbegotten first term. Eventually, Americans will be better off than they were in 2008. When that day finally comes, this president will have had nothing to do with it. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.No papers, no fear, at the Democratic conventionAs the Democratic National Convention was gaveled into session Tuesday, outside in the rain, in the paramilitarized heart of Charlotte, democracy in its finest form found expression. Democracy, that is, if you believe that its built on a foundation of grass-roots movements: the abolitionist struggle, the fight for womens suffrage, the civil-rights movement. In this city, where one of the first lunch counter sit-ins against segregation occurred, 10 undocumented immigrants blocked an intersection, risking arrest and possible deportation while calling on President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party to embrace the immigrant-rights movement and pass meaningful immigration reform. We are here to ask President Obama what his legacy will be, Rosi Carrasco said as she climbed down from the UndocuBus, colorfully painted with butter flies, that the activists traveled in from Arizona. What we want to say to President Obama is, on which side of the history is he going to be? Is he going to be remembered as the president that has been deporting the most people in U.S. history, or he is going to be on the side of immigrants? Rosis husband, Martin Unzueta, said: I am undocumented. Ive been living here for 18 years. I pay taxes, and Im paying more taxes than Citibank. The border state of Arizona has become ground zero in the national immigration crisis, with the passage of the notorious SB 1070 law that sought to criminalize simply being in the state without documentation. Such immigration determinations are under federal jurisdiction, and violations of them are actually civil offenses, not criminal. With SB 1070, Arizona pre-empted federal immigration policy, until most of its provisions were struck down in federal court. While immigrant-rights activists consider the courts decision a victory, our nation remains plagued by its broken immigration policy. The Arizona law prompted similar bills in Republicancontrolled state legislatures across the country. When a draconian anti-immigrant bill was signed into law in Alabama, Latinos fled east to Georgia and Florida, while Alabama farmers, unable to find hired help willing to do the backbreaking work typically reserved for migrants, saw their crops rot in the fields. This is where movements come in. When the machinery of government breaks down, when politicians and bureaucrats create gridlock, it takes the power of the people to effect meaningful change, often at great personal risk. Across the U.S., immigrant activists are increasingly engaging in civil disobedience, especially the young. Just as it was young people in North Carolina more than half a century ago who defied the advice of their elders to be more patient in the fight against segregation. Today, many young people have targeted President Obama with sit-down actions in his campaign offices, pressuring for passage of the DREAM Act. Many of them came to this country as children, without documentation. President Obama showed some sympathy for these DREAMers last June, when he announced a decision within the Department of Homeland Security to free 800,000 of them from the threat of potential deportation proceedings: Imagine youve done everything right your entire life studied hard, worked hard, maybe even graduated at the top of your class only to suddenly face the threat of deportation to a country that you know nothing about, with a language that you may not even speak ... it makes no sense to expel talented young people, who, for all intents and purposes, are Americans theyve been raised as Americans; understand themselves to be part of this country. Many celebrated the announcement, then challenged the president to act on his pledge. Several activists got themselves detained so they could enter the Broward Transitional Center, a predeportation jail in Florida, and interview detainees. They found dozens of people who are eligible for release under President Obamas policies, but who languish in the jail nevertheless. Here in Charlotte, outside the convention center, 10 brave souls, among them a young woman and her mother, a couple and their daughter, sat down in the pouring rain on a large banner they placed in the middle of the intersection. The banner read No Papers, No Fear (in Spanish, Sin Papeles, Sin Miedo), with a large b utterfly in the center. As the police surrounded them, I asked one of the women about to be arrested, why a butte rfly? Because butter flies have no borders, she told me. Butter flies are free.

There are more than 1,000 amateurs in the draft every year, and most players who are drafted end up mired in the minor leagues, never seeing the major league light of day. Here on the Paradise Coast we take great pride in our own Chris Resop, relief pitcher for the surprising Pittsburgh Pirates. Hes become a workhorse in the bullpen this year, pitching in 50 games (63.2 innings) with 41 strikeouts and a 3.68 ERA. Though they have a rich baseball tradition, the Pirates in the past decade have been stuck at the bottom of their division. Now, with only 35 games remaining, theyre in the hunt for a post-season birth. Chris was born in Naples in 1982 and lettered in both baseball and football at Barron Collier High School before graduating in 2001. In a fitting tribute, the school retired his No. 4 jersey earlier this year. He made his major league debut for the Florida Marlins in June 2005 and had stints with the Anaheim Angels and the Atlanta Braves until he found a home with the Pirates in 2010. In 2011, his first full season in the majors, he established career highs in games and innings pitched. Among relief pitchers, he ranked ninth in innings pitched and tied for eighth in strikeouts. The Pirates chose Chris to receive the Branch Rickey Award, named for the Brooklyn Dodgers general manager who broke the sports color barrier by signing Jackie Robinson in 1945 and bringing him to the majors two years later. Among the criteria for the award is that the recipient be a role model for young people and a contributor to the community whose volunteer activities exemplify service above self. Here and in Pittsburgh, Chris and his wife, Kara, donate time and money to support pediatric cancer research and to help children fighting the disease. They have a son, Colton, whos nearly 3, and are expecting a daughter who will be named Summer.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 13-19, 2012 and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a 15-year-old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet He may be the new president of Edison State College, but this man is also funny. Where does it say that on the resume? Nowhere. When I knew him as a dean at Broward Community College, I thought he was all and only professional a nice guy but only about his job, completely serious. Stiff, I guess, recalls his wife, Liz Allbritten, then also a college administrator and now executive director of The Immokalee Foundation. It wasnt until much later that I learned how many different sides there are to him. In fact, his father was a career Army officer and his mother a pianist and teacher whose precocious son could play the guitar and sing like ringing a bell. He spent part of his childhood overseas and part of it in Aberdeen, Md., where his dad was stationed after Vietnam and later retired from the Army. Although the young man seriously considered a life as a rock n roller, he says, he was no Johnny B. Goode. My parents couldnt see the beauty in that plan, to be a rock star, he admits. And besides, he began to doubt the lifestyles of the much older musicians he played with, who kept having to sneak him into clubs until he came of age. But he gave music a chance, not only winning an acceptance to the Berklee College of Music in Boston, but once traveling to New York, where he considered attending the Julliard School of Music and singing opera. (In an oft-told story, he had taken voice lessons at the bequest of his grandfather, who couldnt stomach the rock n roll.) But that wasnt for him, either. So the boy who had nearly flunked out of high school by getting Ds in algebra II and geometry went to Murray State University in western Kentucky, where his dad had come from. There, he joined the Sigma Pi fraternity and found himself in love with trigonometry and calculus, and later with organic chemistry. I almost had a religious conversion, I loved it so much, he admits. By the time he was 27, hed graduated from Murray State and earned a masters degree in mathematics and a Ph.D. in chemistry from Middle Tennessee State University, where he would later take his first administrative job as an assistant dean. For the doctorate, the young Allbritten produced a dissertation so complicated that even the title defies simple understanding: A Platinum 195 Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Study of the Solvolysis of Sodium Hexachloroplatinate by Dimethyl Sulfoxide. This from a kid who almost flunked out of high school because he was so poor in math? Heres the reason, he says, offering both an explanation and an analysis that reveals his own temperament and character. Algebra, for example, is just arithmetic with letters. What do you do besides add, subtract, multiply and divide? But put an X in it, and peoples blood pressure spikes. Then they talk themselves out of it. People say, I dont have a mathematical mind, but Ive never heard a person say, I dont have a historical mind. Why is that? The fact is, people can change. And they can do it. He knows because he did, learning to love both math and chemistry parts of it, at any rate. I hated (chemistry) lab, it was like torture for me, like washing dishes in a restaurant kitchen, but I fell in love with organic. It was the first time I was studying the nature of science, of chemistry. It pulled the curtain back on the mystery. And that may be his greatest passion studying the mystery, discerning the architecture of a complex system, seeing the thing entire and making it work. Those who care about Edison State College and they number many up and down the southwest coast hope so. Because that is what its going to take for the new president to succeed. On the job As big as a linebacker, pinkcheeked and boyish wearing a dark suit and tie under a crew cut that doesnt hide the balding evidence of almost 49 years of living Dr. Allbritten appears only partly comfortable in the sweeping, conference-table confines of his polished corner office on the second floor of the I-building, overlooking the central garden and fountain at Edison States main campus in Fort Myers. On a clear September morning with sunlight flooding the suite of administrative offices, he discusses his first six weeks in harness, and what may come after. Im wall to wall, he says. Im so overcrowded with meetings I have to do most of my work in the evening. Bouncing out of the flanking office to help him as he begins the first meeting of the day with a reporter is the academic equivalent of a Man Friday Dr. Henry Peel, the presidents special assistant and one of two administrators Dr. Allbritten brought with him from his year as president of Macon State College in Georgia, a job he left to take the helm at Edison State. (The other, Dr. Jeff Stewart, is a cabinetlevel vice president for institutional research for integrity, accountability and accreditation.) Special assistant is an important title in part because of what it isnt. Dr. Peel is outside the chain of command at Edison State. He is not an executive vice president, not a senior staffer, but a consultant and a very experienced administrator who simply acts as a second pair of eyes and the second in a two heads are better than one strategy for leadership. You need somebody to bounce things off of, because there are too many moving parts to this, Dr. Allbritten explains simply. That means Dr. Peel is not a buffer between the new president and his staff unlike personnel hired by the previous president, Dr. Kenneth Walker, who brought in the former head of Lee County schools so he could avoid dealing with staff on many levels, they say. I didnt like that model even when it worked, Dr. Allbritten notes. When you bring in a (James) Browder, you create a buffer between you and the faculty. But Im trying to keep an open door. Unfortunately, at the moment the door is locked. As Dr. Allbrittens first meeting of the day concludes, the door begins to rattle. Then it shakes. The new president rises with a self-deprecating grin, glides across the room and opens it. Theres Dr. Peel, as crisply attired as Dr. Allbritten and about half the size. You have five minutes before your 9:30, he says pleasantly. It was locked, says Dr. Allbritten. Yes, locked. Turn it like this Dr. Peel demonstrates. Now itll stay open. Aside, the special assistant describes Dr. Allbritten this way: Of all the leaders Ive worked with in 30 years, he is the closest thing to the complete package of what I think a leader needs to be. Hes such a mix of being able to see conceptually where the organization needs to go, and figuring out how to get it there. I think he does prefer to be the architect, but he can still nail those nails. On this morning, once hes given the press and therefore the public a glimpse of his ambitions, Dr. Allbritten will meet with staff to discuss personnel in the development office. Then hell switch gears to meet with the union negotiating team and begin a process of collective bargaining with faculty and staff. Note to reporter, from Dr. Allbritten: In the past, the staff received the same raises as the faculty, by default if the faculty accepted 3 percent, for example, thats what the staff would get. Not now, in all likelihood. Now, in fact, Im suggesting that senior staff thats about eight people take nothing this year. I havent talked to all of them about it yet, but we need to take care of the lower-paid echelon first. Youre hearing this raw. After all that, hell get to lunch, which is just another word for meeting in this case, to talk about the academic structure of Edison with his vice presidents. The afternoon schedule, meanwhile, might as well unfold on a different planet, it seems so far away from the busy morning. Blowing in the windWithout question, significant changes are coming to Edison State and they have to come so the college can maintain its accreditation and recoup its reputation after the debacle that became public last year. Our biggest obstacle is the past culture here, Dr. Allbritten says. Well be bringing in new blood, fresh ideas, and Im a big believer in diversity in education not just talking about it. Things were inbred here before, we were too insulated from the outside world for too long. There were factions both internal and external, and we have to change that. This is not a jobs program, its an institution. Edison State, in other words, is about to become a meritocracy. And instead of a college that functions almost as three colleges we were fractured, we forgot each other, admits Dr. Allbritten there will be four schools, with vice presidents of each who report to the new president. The faculty will know: theyre either part of the School of Education, the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Business and Technology, or the School of Health Professions, he explains. Before it was bizarre people would get internal power, and it was all about relation-ALLBRITTENFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTODr. Henry Peel and Dr. Jeff AllbrittenVANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYLiz and Jeff Allbritten

Theres not an ounce of complaint in the man about any of this instead, his face takes on a delighted expression, as if hes having fun. His eager good cheer seems to defy the awesome responsibilities he just shouldered: head of a 600-staff, $165 million, three-campus behemoth of higher education, with troubles. It was in this office, which hes rearranged to seem less imposing, that his predecessor, Kenneth Walker, ran his own salary up to more than $800,000 per year, with additional benefits. By contrast, Dr. Allbritten makes $275,000 with a single additional allowance for a car. Dr. Peel, his special assistant, is now on a three-month contract at $15,000 per month. According to many critics, Mr. Walker also allowed egregious violations of academic standards, such as giving students credit for classes they hadnt taken, pretending the nursing program was accredited, and hiring his friends rather than the best people for the job. During the years when Edison State was expanding, becoming a four-year college with baccalaureate degree programs (there are now 10) and hidden troubles, Dr. Albritten was a vice president of the Collier County campus, a job he assumed in 2003. He had come from administrative jobs at Middle Tennessee State University (his graduate alma mater), Florida State College in Jacksonville and Broward Community College, and he was and still is revered by many in and out of Collier County. Hes enthusiastic, hes passionate, hes articulate hes just what the doctor ordered to bring Edison State forward, says Dr. Allen Weiss, a physician and president and CEO of NCH Healthcare Systems based in Naples, who has known the new college president for almost a decade. With his wife, Marla, Dr. Weiss was so inspired by Dr. Allbrittens articulate devotion to the sciences and professions that support them, that the couple donated $1 million to help create the Allen and Marla Weiss Health Sciences Hall on the Collier campus. The new president raised money, helped establish new buildings, developed new academic programs for students from every walk of life in Collier, and created an Edison State that became a respected lodestone in the educational community. He also began to establish relationships with Florida Gulf Coast University in a pattern of what he calls coopetition rather than competition that is likely to continue energetically in the future, he says. So do others. Hes going to do a super job, because he has all of the skills, and he has the experience he needs now, predicts Wilson Bradshaw, FGCUs president. What he will also need, Dr. Bradshaw adds, is strong support from the board, and from the faculty and staff. And from what I am hearing, he has that, too. Remarkably, Dr. Allbritten had no idea how troubled Edison State had become in particular, he didnt know how much money his predecessor was taking out of the system for his own reward even into his seventh year as head of the Collier campus. Walker had established a relationship that was dont call me and I wont call you, he recalls. Then he attended a meeting of community leaders in March of 2011, at which the publisher of The News-Press in Fort Myers appeared at his elbow with a copy of the next days paper. There was Walkers salary in black ink and everybodys salary, he recalls. At that point, Dr. Allbritten had already decided to seek other jobs, and was on his way to Macon State. The dam had broken, and it was a fortuitous time to step out, he says. Half of the eight-member board was replaced by Gov. Rick Scott. Dr. Walker was eventually fired. The college was put on probation by state officials its a one year period that will conclude in a strict review next February. Then, officials will determine if Edison State should continue to be accredited, something no one doubts will happen. And finally, Dr. Allbritten was hired back, surrendering a job at Macon State he had come to love only in a short time, he says. The love trainWhy? The one-word answer is not career, but love. The year before, Dr. Allbrittens wife, Liz, had secured a job she cherishes as executive director of The Immokalee Foundation. It brought together everything that made her happy in work, he explains her fierce desire to do some good in the world for people with less than she has, her considerable organizational talents and people skills, and the nourishing reality of honorable work. For a while a long, long year they tried a commuter marriage, with him at Macon State and her in Naples, and both of them hopping weekend planes. The couple had been married for six years at that point, both for the second time she has two adult children, and together they share four grandchildren and they were willing to try it. It was $1,200 a month just to see each other on weekends, and it was a lot harder than I thought it would be, he says. But the plan was that in a couple of years she would join me. Then the job at Edison State opened up, and friends began to call, encouraging Dr. Allbritten to consider a change again. Eventually, he did. It wasnt easy having to go to (my colleagues) and tell them I was leaving Georgia, he admits. They werent happy, but they understood. He simply could not ask his wife to abandon something she loved so much, when he had a chance to do what he loved in the same place working with young people, or at least working for them. Its passion both Jeff and I have, Mrs. Allbritten explains. And what we do works so well together. Im working with kids coming from poverty, trying to get them out of poverty through education so they will succeed, and to provide scholarships. She and the foundation also provide some jobs to Edison State students, whom they hire with others to work as tutors. Dr. Allbritten, meanwhile, is using education creating the architecture of a new system at Edison State to help young people, too. We have a partnership and a marriage with the same vision and goals, and were in harmony with each other, his wife concludes. That bodes well for the entire region, as Edison State emerges into a new frontier of service under the guidance of a real rocker. Its more important to me than anything else, Dr. Allbritten says. And now hes turning up the music.

TIF board member Dick Stonesifer has been a staunch supporter of the program since its inception. In Immokalee, 70 percent of high school graduates do not go on to college, he says. We recognize that college is not for everyone, so we want to provide alternative career options and help prepare students for the workforce. Through Career Development with TIF, students participate in career panels, job shadowing/internships, resume writing, interview training, networking, summer camps and more. The career panels feature speakers in various fields, many of whom share personal stories about their educational backgrounds and the struggles they encounter in achieving their goals. Summer internships with area businesses provide students with real-world experience in particular career fields and help them develop professional skills and knowledge. Local companies, including Naples Community Hospital and Arthrex, have hosted tours, giving students a firsthand look at the workplace in action. These partnerships with area firms are essential to the success of the Career Development program, and TIF is seeking more companies that are willing to provide speakers and consider TIF students for internships and employment. We want our students to know what these companies do, what careers are available and even what kind of income can be expected, says Skip Hildebrand, TIF board member and chairman of the Career Development committee. We want to prepare these students so that when they graduate from high school, they arent lost. To partner with TIF, learn about sponsorship opportunities or volunteer as a career panel speaker, call 430-9122. For more information about the foundation, visit www.immokaleefoundation.org.

Heres a way to honor volunteersThe Diamond Volunteer Program celebrates its fourth season in 2013 and is soliciting nominations for its three annual awards.

The three winning organizations each enjoy a cocktail reception in their honor, media coverage, educational opportunities and inclusion in networking and focus groups. Nominations for the 2013 Diamond Volunteer awards are due by Oct. 15. Nonprofit organizations that want to be considered should e-mail a one-page statement about their organization and who they wish to honor (i.e., board members, special events volunteers, etc.) to DiamondVolunteers@ gmail.com.

Carrots better than sticks for promoting fitness in children and pets Carrots for Charlie by Rhonda Brazina and Ida Margolis. Illustrated by Virginia Mulford. Barringer Publishing. 40 pages. $9.95. Rhonda Brazina and Ida Margolis are educators who are now based in Naples. Like many parents, grandparents, teachers and health-care professionals, they have become concerned about the growing health crisis among children. Far too many youngsters seem to be trapped in lifestyles that are deficient in exercise and nutrition. However, its not an exciting topic, and lectures alone dont do the job. Parents and others who care need help in adjusting perceptions and behavior. Carrots for Charlie means to get the message across to children in a playful, engaging way. While the book focuses on a dog named Charlie, the authors clearly intend for young readers and listeners to understand that Charlies problem is theirs. And guess what? Pets have dietary and exercise needs, too. As the book opens, we meet a young man named Max who has decided to adopt a pet from the local shelter. Max has always made a habit of walking along the Naples beaches and elsewhere. He loves to be outdoors, and he loves to make up and sing songs. Now he has Charlie to accompany him. Charlie has a ready-made routine that helps to keep his new owner fit, and the spaniel also happens to enjoy listening to Max sing. Maxs songs provide youngsters with rhymed packets of information and inspiration. They connect fitness not only with physical well being, but also with the accompanying uplift of mood and attitude. The message: Things that are good for you are not difficult and can be fun. When Max begins giving singing lessons about town, he leaves Charlie behind with the television on and too many unhealthy treats. Before long, Charlie is overweight and sluggish. The neighborhood kids notice this problem and alert Max to it. Soon enough, sweet treats are out and nutritious vegetables and fruits are in. Max learns to disguise the carrots Charlie doesnt like by flavoring them with healthy yogurt. Charlies exercise becomes enhanced when Max takes him to a fitness center designed for dogs and their owners. Its hard to say whether the authors have limited the scope of their message by making Naples the setting and by being so specific about local places: our dog parks, dog friendly places, The Naples Zoo and so forth. Perhaps the idea is that such places are everywhere, if one takes the time to look. So are farmers markets where fresh vegetables are plentiful. In any case, this book has a special hook for Neapolitans in love with their community. The impact of Carrots for Charlie is enhanced immeasurably by Virginia Mulfords illustrations. They set just the right friendly and lively tone, while creating attractive settings for the action. Several special features add to the books utility. The authors provide a question page that encourages young readers to think back over what theyve read. A direct address to parents, guardians and teachers offers additional information about childrens and pets fitness issues. Useful resources, including websites, are provided. Perhaps best of all, the book includes a small sampling of simple, healthy recipes. An accompany website for the book, providing supplementary materials, will be available soon at www.carrotsforcharlie.com. Naples resident Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.A checklist for high-value health careOur nations health-care crisis has reached a turning point. Consider these two chilling commentaries. Federal health-care costs are expected to reach $950 billion this year nearly $1 trillion and become the largest contributor to the skyrocketing national debt. In Florida, Medicaid costs our state 30 percent ($21 billion) of its $70 billion budget. Slightly more than half of Floridas Medicaid funding comes from the federal government. Meanwhile, Americas quality of care delivered falls short of other developed countries in terms of life expectancy, preterm births and other measures of population health even though we spend about twice as much as other nations on per person health-care costs. Florida stands in the third quartile for our nation (although Collier County has ranked first healthiest for two of the past three years and most recently as fourth healthiest of the 67 counties in the Sunshine State). Our goal at NCH is to provide high-value health care to our community. But what does that mean exactly? Recently the Institute of Medicine offered a 10-point checklist on high-value health care. Heres how we stack up on the first few measures of this list:1. Foundational elements A culture of continuous improvement and leadership, e.g., NCHs selection of the most posters on best practices at last years Institute of Healthcare Improvement; board of trustees and management leadership team, e.g., Board Quality Committee, Physicians Excellence Committee and our Physicians Improvement Committee, etc. 2. Fundamental infrastructure Information technology best practices that provide automated, reliable information to and from the point of care, e.g., our recent Most Wired award and our plans for a Health Information Exchange. 3. Evidence-based medicine Effective, efficient and consistent care, e.g., protocols leading to no central line infections from 16 to 31 months depending on the unit. 4. Resource utilization Optimized use of personnel, physical space and other resources, e.g., markedly improved door-todoctor time in the ER, averaging 30 minutes out of season and 60 minutes in season. 5. Care delivery priorities The right care, right place, right team/patient-clinician collaboration, e.g., cardiac surgeons, interventional cardiologists and patients understanding therapeutic options and accomplishing optimal outcomes. 6. Targeted services Tailored community and clinic resources for resourceintensive patients, e.g., community health partners working with very ill, complex patients to maximize their health. 7. Reliability and feedback Internal transparency/Embedded safeguards with supports and prompts to reduce injury and infection, sharing information with community leaders through NCH board and the medical staff. Ill update you on our progress in meeting the other elements on the institutes list in the future. The point is that while our nations health-care course remains uncertain, here at NCH, were not waiting. Were acting.

According to the Summary of Health Statistics for U.S. Adults National Health Interview Survey 2010: 73 percent of women and 59 percent of men last contacted a doctor or other health professional in the previous six months. Men were less likely to have contacted a doctor within the last year or more. In addition, men were more likely to have never contacted a doctor. 46 percent of women last contacted a dental health professional within the previous six months compared with 40 percent of men. Overall, 20 percent of adults aged 18 years and over had not made an office visit to a health provider in the past 12 months. Take a Loved One to the Doctor Day encourages individuals to take charge of their health by visiting a doctor, nurse, dentist, nurse practitioner, physicians assistant or other health provider and participating in health screenings. Identifying an acute or chronic condition in a medical providers office early can often significantly reduce the emotional, physical and financial toll on an individual and his family, says Dr. Joan Colfer, director of the Collier County Health Department.

But the fact remains that were far more likely to encounter a tragedy that wont make the news. Accidents, illness and even sudden death are regular visitors to our lives, and they commonly dont raise an eyebrow outside our immediate circle of friends and family. If something happens to you today, your pets need to be looked after, whether the situation will be temporary or, sadly, permanent. Are you prepared? The first step is to make sure someone (or better yet, a couple of people) know that you have pets, where they are and how to care for them. Trade information with other pet-keeping friends, family or neighbors, along with the keys to each others homes. I like to recommend making a folder with all your pets information. Pictures and a physical description of your pet are a good place to start. Add to the file an overview of your pets medical records, including proof of altering and dates of vaccinations. Instructions for any medications should include not only the dosage and where to find the bottle, but also whatever method you use to entice your pet to swallow the pill. Dont forget a copy of your pets license, as well as the name, address and phone number of the animals veterinarian. Write down some information about the tricks and commands your pet knows, as well as any unique personality quirks, such as a favorite spot to be petted. Keeping all this information in an electronic file is also a good idea as long as there are directions on how to find it! As part of your preparation, talk to your veterinarian about setting up plans for emergency care or boarding. If youre a long-term client who always pays bills promptly, you should have no problem getting your veterinarian to agree to run a tab or charge to your credit card if you cannot be reached immediately. I have an arrangement with my veterinarian that if anyone absolutely anyone comes in with one of my animals, the doctor will take the pet in and do what needs to be done. And he knows that either I or my heirs will settle the bill later. If you are able to make such arrangements, put those details in the folder, too, and include any information on pet health insurance policies, as well. The final bit of information for the folder should concern arrangements for your pet if you never come home again. While no one likes to think about this possibility, you have a responsibility to your pets to provide for them after your death. You cannot leave money directly to an animal, but you can leave the animal and money to cover expenses to a trusted friend or relative. In some states, you can establish a trust in your pets name. Talk to an attorney about what arrangement is best for you and your pets. You should keep a copy of the file on hand in case you ever need to be evacuated with your pet. And be sure to trade copies with the person youll be counting on to rescue your pet should you ever not be able to. A few years ago, I had major surgery, and although everything turned out well, I didnt take it for granted that I would survive, much less thrive. I put such a folder together for each of my pets, complete with arrangements for the worstcase scenario. I surprised myself in that I didnt find the exercise frightening or depressing. On the contrary, I found great peace in knowing that if something happened to me, my beloved pets would be taken care of.

SOCIAL MEDIA MAKES GABRIEL PIERCE nervous. This puts him in quite the predicament, as he oversees social media for Opus, a fine dining restaurant in downtown Punta Gorda. When Mr. Pierce goes to post something on the restaurants Facebook page, something as simple as a drink special, he will sit there, write up two lines, stare at them and then erase them.

SW Floridas Fastest Growing Mortgage Bank!You can own for $470 a month www.aemc.cc MONEY & INVESTING Fiscal crisis is not limited to national levelThe U.S. government has been running trillion dollar plus deficits over the past several years and the nation carries a large national debt of $16 trillion plus some $35 trillion net present value of future liabilities for various entitlement programs. In total, the real national debt approaches $51 trillion. The federal government, however, is not the only governmental entity in trouble the combined debt of state and local governments stands at $3 trillion. Their unfunded pension liabilities are another $3 trillion and those numbers do not include the present value of future payments that states will make under Medicaid clearly several more trillion. For some states, part of the issued debt relates to public pension costs. Facing budget shortfalls, states floated cheap municipal bonds in order to make required annual pension contributions that were projected to earn 7.5 percent for their public retirees. Beyond these generic problems, there are many governmental entities that have really hit a wall due to spending excess or revenue/ receipts shortages. Municipal services can only be cut back to a point and local/state tax increases can backfire into a corporate and individual taxpayer exodus. Once at those limits, municipalities then look to lessen creditor cash payments and the likely candidates are the large, public pension contracts. If negotiations with these and other creditors fail, the municipality might seek legislation mandating reductions in public pension and health benefits. If so, the legislation is generally challenged in the courts. In fact, in the case of Floridas legislated public pension cutbacks, the case was moved directly to the Florida Supreme Court. So, at the end of these legal maneuverings, each state will ultimately decide its sovereign matters, including whether pension contracts can be broken in order to get fiscal budgets back to manageable levels. Some cities fail in their negotiations. Some realize that tweaking pension costs or using creative budget accounting methods are serious and destructive wastes of ticking time. Some have proceeded to file bankruptcy, seeking a court-appointed receiver to force debt reductions. Californias San Bernardino, Stockton, Vallejo and Mammoth Lakes, and Rhode Islands Central Falls have all filed bankruptcy and expectations are that more will follow. T he outc omes of these bankruptcies will be clear signals for other municipal creditors (including public pensions) how they might fare if their pre-bankruptcy negotiations fail. To date, a state has not filed bankruptcy but surely it has been conversation at various times for California, Illinois, New Jersey and Pennsylv ania. Why have state and local budgets been called into accountability sooner than the federal budget that continues to march toward 2013s fiscal cliff? Yes, a few states have taken their constitutional or statutory balanced budget requirements seriously. But most states just lack their own Federal Reserve, i.e. a buyer of their deficit spending using electronic printing to fund their debt. Most voters are not aware of the significance of these state and local fiscal problems until the problems explode. How so? Most governmental entities use accounting methods which, though standard for municipalities, understate the true debt burden and sometimes use gimmickry to make the budget work. If cash accounting is used, there is no accounting for huge future liabilities, which must be reported under accrual accounting. The can was kicked down the road until now as the once future liability has matured to be a present cash drain. State budget practices make fiscal stability and sustainability difficult (For instance) revenue and expenditure are not defined terms. The use of borrowed funds, off-budget agencies and the proceeds of asset sales are not uncommon practices, often rendering balanced budgets illusory, according to the State Budget Crisis Task Force (July 2012 report). The lack of financial transparency makes it more difficult for the public to understand the critical nature of problems such as pensions and other payment obligations. Temporary oneshot measures to avoid or delay hard fiscal decisions mask these underlying problems. Opaque and untimely reporting, coupled with nonexistent multiyear planning, severely hampers efforts to address these problems in a serious manner. Them aint the words of Republicans, the party often characterized as overreacting to fiscal deficits. Two exceptionally talented Democrats (former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker and New Yorks former lieutenant governor, Richard Ravitch) led the task force. They truly understand the importance of federal and municipal fiscal sanity, pull no punches and want Grecian formula accounting to come to an end. The two biggest problems, according to the report, are: Medicaid Its growth far exceeds the growth of states receipts. It is literally crowding out school and infrastructure needs. Medicaids costs will worsen with an aging population and under the new health care law. According to the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, total Medicaid costs are likely to grow at an average annual rate of 8.1 percent between 2012 and 2020 if the health-care reforms in the Affordable Care Act are implemented and at a rate of 6.6 percent if they are not. Underfunded retirement promises for public employees For 2010, the 50 states in aggregate had a $1.4 trillion shortfall. Specifically, state public pensions are underfunded by one third or $750 billion. State retiree health benefit plans are underfunded 95 percent or $660 billion, according to The Pew Center on the States, June 2012 report. Words to the wise: Carefully select your city and state for residency as its fiscal condition can really impact you. And when voting this year, consider electing men or women who will have the capacity, experience and commitment to address these critically important budget issues.

Two or three sentences and I stared at my screen for half an hour, Mr. Pierce says. I cant tell you how many times Ive posted something and its like, Did anybody even see that? Ive gone back and deleted it so fast. Mr. Pierce treads lightly when it comes to social media for a reason he has heard stories stories of digital strategies gone awry, stories of ambitious employees blemishing their brands, stories of innocent mistakes that become embarrassments. Its inevitable, he says. It will happen to me. But listening to the various tales of Southwest Florida social media experts, businesses may see not all stories are scary, though all have lessons to impart. Yes, as you traverse that digital-scape of transforming your brand into a friend, you will have Reply all slips and autotype blunders. Yes, you will have tweets reminding you that the world is watching you. You will have to walk the line between being personal, but not too personal. And yes, sometimes the unexpected happens.Fame and weirdosSometimes, the unexpected is full of wonder and reward. Other times, its a stalker. Kerri Goldsmith, treasurer of the SWFL Social Media Club, illustrates the point with two very different stories. I have a friend, Pam Rambo, who has a blog about shelling, Iloveshelling. com, Ms. Goldsmith says. The New York Times found her blog, came down and did a story about shelling on Sanibel, just out of the blue. By putting yourself or your business out there, Ms. Goldsmith says you never know who you will attract. Sometimes its The New York Times. Other times, its a weirdo. There was this creepy thing that happened to me personally, says Ms. Goldsmith, who went to her hair salon and had a sketchy experience involving the location-based check-in application of Foursquare. You can become mayor of a place if you check in often enough, says Ms. Goldsmith, who has an ongoing battle with her friend for mayorship of their salon. So while she was having her hair done, she checked in and became mayor again. But her Foursquare account was linked to her Twitter. Five minutes later, the phone rang. This strange guy starting asking me if I was having a mani/pedi. He asked me where I was going next. He told me he would know. He was watching my checkins, says Ms. Goldsmith, who delinked her Foursquare from her Twitter. Now the only people who see my Foursquare posts are the people I know face-to-face.Image is everywhereTo businesses and teenagers alike, Ms. Goldsmith reiterates that primordial social media cry, What you post is public. But even though she had a bad experience, she still considers herself to be an enthusiast of social media. I think a lot of people see each platform as a passing fad, Oh yeah, there will be something to replace it, but really, social medias just evolving, she says. Its not all Facebook and Twitter and LinkedIn and Foursquare. Social media goes way back to America Online and chat rooms. And while the platform might change, Ms. Goldsmith says the nuclear idea remains the same, People immediately sharing content all over the world. Cyndee Woolley feels people need to be more mindful of this content. The owner of C2 Communications, a Naples-based public relations and marketing firm, Ms. Woolley has a funny story to share funny because it did not happen to her. You know when you go to some website or social-cam site and log in with your Facebook to read an article or watch a video? Ms. Woolley says as the preface to her story. Well, next thing you know, the site starts posting stuff on your timeline that you dont even know about. She segues to a prominent businessman, I cannot name names, suffice it to say, this mans a conservative businessman who must have signed in to some shady site, because the next thing Ms. Woolley saw on his timeline were links to Supermodels without makeup and some article on Reducing cellulite. The next time I saw him at a networking event, I giggled a little, Ms. Woolley says. Of course, I didnt say anything, but I knew what he was reading. So as much as you might not want to connect your social media accounts, you might not want to sign in with them either, as this could show more of yourself than you are willing to bare. Yes, your social media use reinforces who you are, where you go and what you do, but when does your social media use become too personal, when do you go too far? I want people to know I have a family, but I dont need them to know what school my daughter goes to, Ms. Woolley says. You have to draw a personal line. Theres a point where you say, This is family time. This is special to me. Im going to keep this just for me and my family or me and my friends. But Samantha Scott says personal posts tend to pull more of a reaction. The president elect and past social media chair of the Florida Public Relations Association SWFL chapter, Mrs. Scott points to her anniversary as proof. Mrs. Scott posted a happy anniversary comment on her husbands Facebook wall, sharing how she met him and why she loves him. I didnt do it for everyone else, I did it for us, she says, so she was surprised to see her post drew 63 likes and 24 comments. From a business perspective, I always tell my clients, people connect with people. Thats what social media was created for, engaging with other people, says Mrs. Scott, who co-owns Pushing the Envelope, a mixed marketing communications firm with her husband. The more genuine, the more personable you are, the more engagement you are going to have. So Mrs. Scott abides by a four-for-one personal/promotional ratio. For every four personal posts, she allows herself one promotional post. She likens this social media balance to sharing a cup of coffee. If every time you had coffee with me, I was telling you how awesome my business was, how special we are, how we can serve you, why you should join us, she says. Eventually, you would stop having coffee with me. Though social media serves as a conversation medium about which so much conversation surrounds, Mrs. Scott feels theres one thing left unsaid: listening. Its so simple, but so often overlooked, she says. Social media is as much about listening as it is about sharing. Social productivityMatthew Bernaldo loves the listening bit. As the director of new media for Waterman Broadcasting, listening helped Mr. Bernaldo garner 28,000 Facebook friends, which he counts as the largest Facebook following of local media in Southwest Florida. There was this one time, I cant remember exactly what for, but we were being stonewalled by some government agency over something, Mr. Bernaldo recalls. I just went around them and (posted on Facebook), Were seeing this at this location. The sheriffs office doesnt want to talk about it. What do you see? Mr. Bernaldo says in the old days, he would have solicited the networks website, If you see something, e-mail us, but such media has evolved into Facebook. He categorizes his-social-media-self to be a heavy Facebook user, less so on Twitter, with a passing interest in Pinterest. Yes, he sees social media as one more mouth to feed, but one that helps Waterman Broadcasting maintain its count on NBC2 first image. But as far as giving social media advice, Mr. Bernaldo says, I dont know if I want to answer that question There are a lot of morons down the street who dont get this Just because theyre not paying attention to what they should be paying attention to I dont know if I want to correct them, showing that as much as social media may be about sharing, its still a competition for whos your BFF.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Why Warren Buffett MattersWarren Buffetts name is familiar, as one of the worlds richest people. Learn more about him, and you may be inspired. His wealth is not inherited. Hailing from Omaha, Neb., Buffett was fascinated by the stock market from childhood. He bought his first shares of stock at the age of 11, making mistakes and losing some money along the way, as every investor does. But he kept learning and applying what he learned. He had $9,000 in the bank when he graduated from high school. (Adjusted for inflation, thats more than $85,000 in todays dollars. A key lesson here is that starting early is powerful.) Today Buffett heads up Berkshire Hathaway, a company he built with his partner, Charlie Munger. It has made many investors rich, and it is actually a collection of many companies that Buffett bought in their entirety, such as Dairy Queen, GEICO, Fruit of the Loom, Benjamin Moore, Sees Candies, NetJets, The Pampered Chef and the huge BNSF railroad. He also owns big chunks of stock in some other companies. As of the end of 2011, for example, Berkshire Hathaway owned sizable portions of American Express, Coca-Cola, Procter & Gamble, IBM, Wells Fargo and more. Many are solid dividend payers. How has Buffett done? Well, remember that historically, the stock market has grown by about 10 percent per year, on average. Meanwhile, Buffetts company has averaged more than 20 percent per year since 1965, and is now worth more than $200 billion (a fifth of a trillion dollars!). Buffett is leaving most of his own tens of billions to charity, and has been getting many other billionaires to pledge to do the same.Fortunately for us, Warren Buffett is not just a great investor, but also a great teacher, offering advice on how to be sensible about investing. Learn from his many educational (and entertaining) annual letters to shareholders at berkshirehathaway.com, and read about his amazing life and achievements in Roger Lowensteins terrific biography, Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist (Random House, $19). I trace my roots back to a dry-goods store in Wyoming in 1902, where I sold blue jeans, fabric, sewing goods and more. I was first named The Golden Rule and have long aimed to treat others Fair and Square. I boast about 1,100 stores today, though I once had more than 2,000. In 1914 I moved my headquarters to New York City, and in 1992, to Plano, Texas. I launched my catalog in 1963 and started taking online orders in 1994. I owned the Eckerd drugstore chain from 1997 to 2004. Ellen DeGeneres speaks for me. Who am I? Know the answer? Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and youll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! Deflation DefinedQWhats deflation? P.R., Bloomington, Ind.AThe opposite of inflation, deflation occurs when price levels fall over time. It typically happens during a recession and is frequently accompanied by rising unemployment and decreased production. Thus, while the idea of lower prices may sound appealing, deflation isnt usually welcome. Prices may be lower, but thats mainly due to supply outstripping demand, as many people (and businesses) cant afford various items or are putting off buying them. There are measures that can be taken to combat the threat of deflation. The Fed, for example, can lower interest rates or increase the money supply to spur inflation a bit. Those worried about deflation might brace for a possible pullback in stocks, and might look to lock in some yields with government bonds. It may seem counter-intuitive, but a little inflation can be good for businesses and for us.***QCan I buy fewer than 100 shares of stock in a company? E.M., Biloxi, Miss.AYes, indeed. You can usually buy as little as one share at a time. But be sure to pay attention to the commissions you pay your brokerage if you buy one $45 share of stock and pay a $15 commission, youre out 33 percent from the get-go. Its sometimes best to accumulate cash and buy a bigger stake, later. If youre buying stock directly from a company, such as through a dividend reinvestment plan (a Drip), your money can buy fractions of shares at a time. For example, a $30 contribution would buy you half a share of a $60 stock.

See Write to Us, left.Invest, Dont GambleYears ago, I watched Sun Microsystems stock price fall to $12 per share, and then $9. I bought a lot of shares. When it rebounded to $12, I felt like Id really made a score! But weeks later, it sank quickly to $5 and then to $3.25. I sat with my $9 shares under water for a long time. I played my cards and lost. Im now more cautious about buying something that I swear cant go any lower. Now even shares at $2 or $3 I get nervous about. T.K., onlineThe Fool Responds: First off, be careful if youre thinking about investing in gambling terms, such as playing cards. Many do speculate wildly in the market, but successful stock investors often see themselves as part-owners of carefully selected businesses, aiming to hold on for years. And as you learned, even seemingly very low prices can keep falling. You need to read up on the situation and see how likely a recovery is.For a list of companies our analysts think are undervalued, try our Motley Fool Inside Value newsletter for free, at insidevalue.fool.com. Google: Not a One-Hit WonderGoogle (Nasdaq: GOOG) built its dominance on search, delivering relevant information to those who seek it. It monetizes this through advertising, which remains 96 percent of its revenue today. Given Googles failure to turn Gmail, YouTube or Android into cash cows, some wonder whether it will ever branch out beyond searchbased products. It might not have to, though, since its position as the gatekeeper between a user and information gives it significant value, power and advantage over competitors. Google has seen many successes. Gmail claims 425 million users, compared to Microsofts Hotmail at 325 million. Googles Chrome browser went from 0 percent market share in 2008, to having the majority of the market at a little more than 33 percent. Microsofts Internet Explorer comes in a close second at a little under 33 percent. Eventually, some of Googles new products will turn into moneymakers. In the meantime, via acquisitions, Google can bank on the ideas of others that were developed outside the company. It has acquired 60 companies since the start of 2010, including Motorola Mobility, which can help it expand in the hardware realm. The stock isnt the bargain it was a few months ago, but its future is promising. Perhaps at least keep an eye on it as a possible candidate for your portfolio.

Jeanette Nuez on Aug. 17. Last January, the Florida Senate approved redrawn political boundaries and as a result, Mr. Rivera and Ms. Nuez will no longer represent Collier County. Among the 60 guests at the reception were State Rep. Kathleen Passidomo, Mayor John Sorey, Sheriff Kevin Rambosk, County Commissioner Jim Coletta and Fire Commissioner Jim Burke. Bill Poteet, president of NABOR, said he was pleased to have been the key contact between NABOR and Mr. Rivera. I followed his career in government and watched as he did such a tremendous job, he said. Mr. Rivera told the crowd, I am appreciative of your continued support as we transition into the new leadership in Collier County. I would like to thank everyone here so much for honoring me. Collier County has honored me for 10 years There is a great civic fabric in the community as elected leadership and civic leadership work together. Ms. Nuez acknowledged the past challenges in the real estate industry. I am so glad to hear from many real estate agents about how things are improving, she said. IDS plans Coastalattitudes showroomInternational Design Source, a to-thetrade showroom for interior design professionals, plans to open its fourth showroom, IDS4 Coastalattitudes, later this month at 1959 Trade Center Way, Naples. The new showroom will focus on the variations of life on the water in three themes: vintage, plantation and coastal, which represent a design-driven approach to relaxed living that marries the interior with elements of the outdoors.Our inspiration is from Nantucket to Malibu, the Gulf Coast to the Caribbean, says IDS owner Emilio Sadez. We want to show how the boundary between land and sea fades for relaxed living both indoors and out. In more than 38,000 square feet of showroom space, IDS houses ready-togo items from fine furniture to accessories from more than 200 of the most respected lines in the industry, including Century, Drexel, Habersham, Harden, Hickory Chair, Hickory White, Lane Venture and Swaim. The companies first three showrooms are: IDS1: Classic furniture. IDS2: Fabric, offering fabric, wall covering and hardware lines from brands such as Clarke & Clarke, Fabricut, Kasmir, R M Coco, Romo, Thibaut and Vervain. IDS3: Contemporary furniture.

Lyrics were credited to a fictitious child character, Gerald Bostock, whose parents lied HOW DO YOU CONVEY THE POWER OF A THEatrical experience? Arts journalists and critics grapple with that dilemma regularly, whenever they put black words on white paper and attempt to describe a colorful, threedimensional experience of sound, movement, costume and art.

Look at this, she said. She thrust the issue at me, its pages folded back to the relationship section. Can you believe this jerk? I read the first line of a letter from a male reader: Im a 34-year-old Internet entrepreneur and angel investor, he said. Can you help me find a woman? A reasonable request, I thought. What Im looking for is a life partner not the mother of my children. Anyone who aspires to be a housewife is automatically eliminated. Harsh but not outrageous. I continued reading, I suppose the easiest way to summarize is to say that Im seeking a smarter, hotter, younger, female version of myself (smile). True, this guy wasnt winning any personality points, but what was the harm in asking for exactly what he wanted? I almost gave him a pass, until I read his list of qualifications. Out-of-this-world intelligent and passionate, it began. Ambitious and extremely independent with eclectic and diverse interests. Not needy, high-maintenance, jealous or requiring constant attention. Very adventurous loves to backpack around China, for example. Supersexual and sexually adventurous. On the Pill. I put down the magazine and turned to my roommate. Is this guy for real? Keep going, she said. Very thin (but not because shes starving herself or has food issues I want someone who will be thin her entire life). Small breasts (usually come with very thin). Loves big dogs (but not small dogs or cats). Not cats? I said. Im out. Happy! Healthy! Nice! the list continued. Plays tennis very well, helicopter skis and is dying to learn how to kiteboard. Speaks French perfectly. And the final bit of impossibility, as if the rest werent enough: Plays video games. I turned to my roommate. Hes never getting laid, I said.And also: Who was he kidding? Helicopter skiing? Fluent French? Loves to play Halo and The Legend of Zelda? But even as I laughed, I felt a twinge of compassion for him. Dont we all build our romantic walls, brick by careful brick, as we set down our unrealistic expectations? If we were all foolhardy or brave enough to write them down, our list might rival this one in silliness.Perhaps we should be like my good friend instead, a young man who carried his own list around for years. His No. 1 criteria was that he marry a Latin woman, a dark-haired beauty with soft curves who could dance salsa and merengue and speak to him in sweet Spanish. But he ended up marrying a woman more like himself: slim and petite and Midwestern, with no curves and light hair. A woman who didnt fit anywhere on his list. They are as right for each other as two people can be, and its only now, from here, that he sees the ways his list held him back. If only we could distill the Elle bachelors criteria to a single bit of wisdom, some universal requirement, a quality wed all be proud to search for. Small breasts? Backpacking? Birth control? How about: Happy! Healthy! Nice! h c f a t artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSLoves outlandish lists

This tour picks up 40 years later and follows the possible paths Gerald, now 50, might have taken. Its a big jump into the future. Its not jumping back 40 years, but looking at what Gerald might have become, Mr. Anderson says. Thats curious enough, but, of course, we all know what Jethro Tull has done in the 45 years since the band was founded. The band has had hits with such albums as Aqualung, Stand Up and Stand in the Jungle. Mr. Anderson still fronts it with vocals, guitar and the ubiquitous flute, even as the groups sound has evolved from progressive blues to folk-rock to electronic to hard rock to a sound that drew on world music. The coloring and nuances of his sound remain constant, even as instrumentations and styles change. You can paint different pictures even though its the same brushes, he says. About the indignities of life on the road for one whos been at it for nearly half a century, he says, I dont fly well. I dont travel well on buses. I dont really enjoy the traveling, but I enjoy getting there and I enjoy the interface with an audience. I enjoy the performing. But touring gives Mr. Anderson the means to take care of his wife of 36 years, Shona, their children, James and Gael, and two grandchildren. It also allows him to pursue a passion for protecting small wild cats. Indeed, his website, www.j-tull.com, has pages of information on the care of domesticated cats and the importance of preserving cats that have been hunted for their skins. Not so horrific is doting on the next generation of little humans in his life. Son James is a musician. Daughter Gael works in the film industry and is married to Andrew Lincoln, who stars in the AMC series The Walking Dead. My grandchildren are 2 and 4. The 4-year-old has an inkling of what I do, just as she has an idea of what her father does. Maybe she thinks everyone is like us. Maybe shes getting the idea that Daddy and Granddad are the kind of people who dont live in the real world. We do something that is about pretending and playing, he says. His son-in-law does have an unusual on-screen job, and its interesting for Mr. Anderson to see to see how his granddaughter, Tillie, interprets it. He kills zombies, which was kind of funny. Tillie doesnt readily understand. Really? In the real world? Shell think that Im pretending, or creating an unreality thats fun, he says. But sometimes reality is blurred. She knows very well that the real world is when she has to get ready to go to bed, he says. TULLFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOSIan Anderson
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 13-19, 2012 is the oldest performing arts center in the country, having been inaugurated on Jan. 15, 1861. Were older than Coca-Cola, says Molly Meloy, BAMs director of strategic marketing. Were older than West Virginia. BAM is known for its breadth and depth of offerings. In its early days, Mark Twain, Henry Ward Beecher and Booker T. Washington spoke there, and Gustav Mahler and Arturo Toscanini conducted orchestras there. Martha Graham, Isadora Duncan and Marian Anderson all performed at the center, as did a 73-year-old Sarah Bernhardt, who gave six performances in three days. Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong and Count Basie performed there, and Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol designed sets for programs there. Dance companies that have graced the stage include those of Merce Cunningham, Paul Taylor and Twyla Tharp. In more recent decades, BAM hosted the opera debut of Nixon in China and the American debut of The Hard Nut (the Mark Morris version of The Nutcracker). The center welcomes new and experimental performers who push the boundaries of their art. Robert Wilson, Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, Pina Bausch, Peter Brook, Bill T. Jones, Robert Lepage and Stew all were championed there early in their careers.All about the experienceIt was fitting that BAM wanted advertising in honor of its milestone 150th anniversary, but the centers leadership didnt want a campaign to focus on its history or upcoming season. Rather than make it about us, we wanted it to be about the experience that people have at BAM, Ms. Meloy says. We set that challenge to mcgarrybowen. We werent selling a show, but the magic that happens when you sit in the theater here. Members of the agencys creative team, which did the work pro bono, were not all avid theater-goers (though their agencys founder, John McGarry, is a regular attendee and BAM supporter.) The team visited BAM and met with executives who told them that at its very best, the arts intensify our humanity. They watched videos of artists talking about BAM. They went to a performance of Diary of a Mad Man. Based on the Gogol short story, the play starred Geoffrey Rush, who was at the time nominated for an Oscar for his performance in the movie The Kings Speech. They also attended an artist talk by actress Susan Sarandon. We were trying to do a complete immersion, Ms. Meloy explains, adding that the center offers a variety of arts experiences: modern dance, theater, music, singing, performance art, cinema and lectures. Our mission is (to be) the home for adventurous artists, audiences and ideas, she says. BAMs not very pedestrian. A few days after seeing Diary of a Mad Man, one of the copywriters had an epiphany while in the shower. He realized that, three days after seeing the play, he was still thinking about it. And the tagline for the campaign was born: BAM, and then it hits you. The ads show various people in their everyday life at the very moment when the memory of a performance they enjoyed hits them. Each photo shows not only the person, but also the memory, co-existing in the same space. One ad shows a woman crossing the street, stopped right in the middle of the crosswalk. Four dancers with shaved heads and bodies doused in white powder circle her. Sankai Juku surrounded her at 39th and 7th, it says, referring to the butoh dance troupe that performed at BAM in October 2006. The woman in the ad is an actor who lives in Brooklyn. Another ad shows a young man sitting on the subway, sitting on the D train, stopped at the Atlantic Street station. Through the open doors, we see a giant boulder, wet with dripping water, and a woman in black dancing in front of it. Vollmond hit him at Atlantic Terminal, says the ad. (The Atlantic Street stop also happens to be the stop for BAM.) The man, a jazz musician who also works at BAM Ticket Services, is remembering Pina Bauschs Vollmond, which played at BAM in September 2010. Other ads show a woman remembering Diary of a Mad Man while sitting in the reference section of a library; a kid in the middle of a softball game, and a woman walking in a rainstorm at night, her umbrella turned inside out. The concept was creative, says Ms. Meloy. And the ability to use BAM in the tagline and that it expressed what transpired was the sheer brilliance of the campaign.Growing a campaignBAM held an open casting call and more than 250 people showed up, including the centers neighbors, board members, patrons and employees. (Two of the people in the ads work for BAM.) The media strategy was to work from the inside out, Ms. Meloy says, so they started the ad campaign on Facebook. Then they went to the Atlantic Street subway terminal and took over the entire spot. We went from our inner circle to our neighborhood, she says. Then, in November, they began advertising all over New York City on the subway, with ads taking up an entire half of a subway car. Those cars also included what BAM calls a manifesto ad. It reads: It can happen at a show. In the subway. It can happen three days later, when youre crossing the street. It can happen anywhere, really. The beauty is, its different for everybody. At that moment of impact, when it happens, you know it. BAM and then it hits you. The initial ads were so popular that BAM introduced six more. One shows a woman on a Brooklyn rooftop, remembering a scene from A Streetcar Named Desire. Cate Blanchett and Joel Edgerton sit at a kitchen table behind her. In another, a man in a business suit sits at a meeting, while Cyclops looms behind him, peering into the office window. The Cyclops crashed his morning status meeting, says the ad. Hes remembering seeing the film The 7th Voyage of Sinbad at BAM. And in yet another, a man in robe, T-shirt and boxer shorts, eating his morning cereal, remembers a performance by Youssou NDour, who stands, mid-song, arms outstretched, by the door.Liked by allBAMs Facebook likes went from 17,000 to 36,000, Ms. Meloy says. People were writing to them about their own experiences after attending a show. We got feedback from other arts institutions, people around the country, saying, You captured the intrinsic impact of art, what it does, why it moves people, why you want to go and why you want to support it. They also surveyed 1,300 people and received comments such as: This is the most enticing, intelligent campaign youve ever had. It so beautifully captures the power of performance to both disappear as it ends and then hit you, unexpectedly elsewhere, as its power to transform our lives and shape our dreams settles into our deeper layers of (newly awakened) awareness. Another respondent said: I especially liked that the New York scenes were clearly taken from photographs of the thing itself, rather than some studio imitation that is probably why the campaign resonated with me. And one more said: I think it is a beautiful and effective campaign. The images are both grounded in reality but seem fantastical because of the blending of images. And that seems like a perfect description of what your programming is all about. Your productions push you, take you from the familiar to the imagined, and do so with rich visual imagery. I love these ads and I love BAM.Book, film, aleAlso in celebration of its 150th anniversary, BAM released a coffee-table book of its history and performers, BAM: The Complete Works ($95, Quantuck Lane Press). BAM 150, a documentary, was shown at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. And Brooklyn Brewery created a champagne ale in the centers honor, called Brooklyn BAMboozle. Surprisingly, though the ads are highly popular, the center is not selling them as posters (two have been made into bookmarks, however). A lot of artists talk about this being their favorite place to perform, because the audience is so engaged, Ms. Meloy says. Part of the audience is lots of artists; Brooklyn is the creative capital of the U.S., if not the world Theres that kind of dynamic with a receptivity to be challenged. Not that this isnt entertaining, but the audience, by definition of picking BAM, wants to be provoked and is looking to be challenged. She points out that Brooklyn is the most diverse county in the country, with nationalities and people from all over the world. You come from Taiwan, and we have a great Taiwanese dance troupe performing, she says. Youre from Russia, living in Brighton Beach, and you can come here and see the Maly Drama Theatre of St. Petersburg doing Chekhov in Russian. That dynamic between artists and audience and the adventurous curatorial component is a winning recipe that people appreciate. When everythings mainstream, thats not so interesting, she adds. I think BAM has been true to its guns for a long time. Our responsibility is not just to entertain, but to challenge and to enrich and provoke. And thats an exciting thing to participate in.

Science fiction loves to expand our minds. It spurs us to think about possibilities, what could be, how the future might look. But science fiction loves to mess with our minds, too, by asking questions that challenge deeply held convictions about ourselves and our world. It presents alternate universes. Things arent always what they seem. (Think of Neos confusion when he learned about the Matrix.) I recently watched two sci-fi films in the same week: World on a Wire and the new Total Recall. Though these movies were made almost 40 years apart and are about as stylistically different from each other as you can get, they both question our concept of reality. It was interesting viewing them so close together.Improving a campy 1990 filmTotal Recall is a remake of the 1990 film by the same name, which was based on the Philip K. Dick short story, We Can Remember It For You Wholesale. The original, starring a lumbering Arnold Schwarzenegger, was a campy movie, even back then. For me, once Arnold lands on Mars and gets through security, the movie falters. Though Im usually resistant to remakes because they rarely improve the original, I was curious about this one. After all, technology has advanced so much that the special effects could be so much better. Not only did the trailer look promising, I wondered how close it would stick to the original and how it might be improved. Many critics were lukewarm, but I enjoyed the movie thoroughly. It was non-stop action, a roller-coaster ride from beginning to end. The new Total Recall includes a thrilling hovercar chase scene, as well as one using a complex system of elevators that move horizontally as well as up and down. Theres also a great fight scene in zero gravity. The basic story is similar, but director Len Wiseman changes things enough that you dont know for sure whats coming next. (The characters dont go to Mars, as in the original, but that didnt bother me.) Factory worker Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) is bored with his life and wants something more. So he goes to Rekall, a company that implants false memories. Tell us your fantasy, well give you the memory is their slogan. Quaid wants memories of being a super spy. But during the procedure, something goes wrong, and Quaid is suddenly being hunted by strangers and the police. His own wife (Kate Beckensale) tries to kill him. Reality and fantasy become blurred. At one point, a friend from work appears and tells Quaid that hes actually still at Rek all, and everything that has happened is all in his mind. Quaid isnt sure whats real and what is implanted memory. Its not deep; its just flat-out fun. And I liked seeing the way they designed the future. Cell phones are implanted under the skin of your palm, so you can just talk into your hand. Place your hand flat against glass, and you can see the person youre talking with. In another scene, we get a quick glimpse of paper money and it has President Obamas face on it. And tattoos of the future are luminescent, glowing underneath the skin. (If youre simply inked, thats so 20th century.) I admit, I was pleased to see that people still read books in the future. Quaid himself is seen reading a paperback copy of Ian Flemings The Spy Who Loved Me. In Total Recall, the future is a dystopia, with the gap between the haves and the have-nots an uncrossable canyon.New on DVDWorld on a Wire, shot in 1973 by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, runs on a much slower pace. Originally made for and aired on German television over two nights, the movie, which hasnt been seen for decades, was recently released on DVD. Based on the novel Simulacron-3 by Daniel F. Galouye, the story focuses on the Institute for Cybernetics and Futurology, where a supercomputer with a simulation program hosts almost 100,000 people living in what they believe to be reality. The programs technical director, Professor Vollmer (Adrian Hoyen), claims to have discovered a great secret that would mean the end of the world as we know it. But the professor dies before he can tell anyone. Promoted to Vollmers position, Dr. Fred Siller (Klaus Lowitsch) learns that the simulation, used to predict market trends 20 years into the future, is possibly being used for something else. Hes talking with Gunther Lause (Ivan Desny), the security adviser of the institute, when the adviser suddenly disappears. No one remembers Lause when Siller tries to find him. Then, their contact unit in the simulated world, a man called Einstein, attempts to become a real person in the real world. Other things are revealed, and Siller finds himself being hunted by his company and accused of insanity and murder. Compared with todays films, the pace in this one is slow, but it kicks in and hooks you at the halfway mark. (Those with no patience might prefer the 1999 movie, The Thirteenth Floor, which was based on the same novel but considered a flop.) Fassbinder worked with a low budget, so the viewer isnt really presented with a future that looks very different. There are picture phones and, of course, a simulated other world, but men wear suits with wide lapels, as was popular in the 0s, and many of them sport the long sideburns of that era. The women drift along in a Stepford Wife way. An obvious pre-cursor to movies such as The Matrix and Avatar, World on a Wire is very much a film of its time. (Mark Jenkins, critic for the Washington Post, wrote: Seen now, the movie seems as timely as it is outdated, its themes contemporary even if the clothing and hairdos are anything but.) In 2010, a restored version of World on a Wire was shown at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival and since then has screened at places such as New Yorks Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Harvard Film Archive. Critics have been unanimous in their praise. Even though this odd, unsettling movie might be too plodding for some sci-fi fans, its an interesting counterweight to Total Recall and intriguing for the questions it raises. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com WELCOMETORECALL.COM & JANUSFILMS.COM

Be careful not to let a sudden surge of stubbornness influence how you choose to deal with them. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might need more facts before you can decide on a possible career change. But you should have no problem making a decision about an important personal matter. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Youre respected by most people for your direct, no-nonsense approach to the issues. But be careful you dont replace honest skepticism with stinging sarcasm. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A newly emerging situation could require a good deal of attention and some difficult decision-making. However, close friends will help you see it through. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Family matters need attention. Check things out carefully. There still might be unresolved tensions that could hinder your efforts to repair damaged relationships. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Of course you deserve to indulge yourself in something special. But for now, tuck that bit of mad money away. Youll need it to help with a looming cash crunch. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A temporary setback in your financial situation is eased by changing some of your plans. Youll be able to ride it out quite well until the tide turns back in your favor. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good time for the usually outspoken Lamb to be a bit more discreet. You still can get your point across, but do it in a way less likely to turn off a potential supporter. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Good news: All that hard work you put in is beginning to pay off. But you need to watch that tendency to insist on doing things your way or no way. Be a bit more flexible. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might want to delay making a decision on the future of a long-standing relationship until you check out some heretofore hidden details that are just now beginning to emerge. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your reluctance to compromise on an important issue could backfire without more facts to support your position. Weigh your options carefully before making your next move. LEO (July 23 to August 22) This is a good time for ambitious Leos or Leonas to shift from planning their next move to actually doing it. Your communication skills help persuade others to join you. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for understanding peoples needs. You have a low tolerance for those who act without concern for others. SEE ANSWERS, C9 SEE ANSWERS, C9012 King Features Synd., Inc.

YesIts nice to see ladies get a bit raunchy. Far too often, movies show us naughty boys doing naughty things, and the women in these films tend to be headshaking judgmental types who pretend theyve never done anything wrong. Bachelorette is here to (finally) call out depictions of women in hoity bridal showers and bachelorette brunches. Regan (Kirsten Dunst), Gena (Lizzy Caplan) and Katie (Isla Fisher) are bitches. We know this because they call one another Bs and barely treat one another with kindness, let alone strangers. They are all also reasonably attractive, which means its a great shock to them when their overweight and unattractive friend Becky (Rebel Wilson) announces shes marrying the notably handsome Dale (Hayes MacArthur). Regan, the maid of honor, means well. Everything is organized and nicely planned out, but all hell breaks loose when bridesmaids Gena and Katie arrive. Katie screams her desire to do cocaine in the hotel lobby, and though Becky wants a simple quiet night before the wedding, Gena/Katie hire a stripper and are subsequently uninvited to the wedding. When the inebriated Regan and Katie try to fit into Beckys plus-size wedding dress, they rip it and so begins a nightlong trek through New York City to get it fixed. With friends like this, Becky doesnt need enemies. Then again, frenemies this funny might be worth keeping around for the laughs. Writer/director Leslye Headland smartly gives Regan, Gena and Katie personality quirks that heighten their humor: Regan is bitter that shes done things right and still isnt happy; Gena cant get over her high-school lover Clyde (Adam Scott), whos attending the wedding; and Katie thinks shes too dumb to make anyone happy, so she drinks and does drugs to hide her pain. All three women are very well played, and their bitchy, snarky senses of humor complement one another perfectly. For example, note the opening with the three women on the phone with one another. Their chemistry and timing is impeccable: Watch the look of horror rather than exultation on Regans face when she learns of Beckys engagement, and how annoyed she is that its not her getting married. Note how Gena has no patience and little regard for her own well being, and how Katie is a shallow, awful liar. They truly are, for lack of a better term, bitches, and whereas a more obliging movie would give each nice tidy resolutions, Headland isnt interested in everyone having an ideal ending. Unlike the similarly themed Bridesmaids, which allowed some jokes to run too long and was only sporadically funny, Bachelor ette knows whats funny, hits and moves on. Theres no wasted motion, and the brisk running time of 87 minutes allows the story to unfold quickly with no letdowns. Bachelorette is what Bridesmaids should have been, and as a result, its hilarious without feeling like its trying too hard.

After being rained out twice last spring, Lipdub Naples volunteers are planning to shoot a lip-synched music video that could involve several thousand people in Old Naples on Sunday, Oct. 28, as part of Naples Cityfest activities. They hope to break a world record by getting 6,000 locals to take part. A lipdub is a type of video that combines lip-synching and audio dubbing to make a music video. Often it looks like a simple music video, but it usually involves an enormous amount of preparation and production. Lipdubs can be done in a single, unedited shot that travels through different rooms and situations within a building or street location. Lipdub Naples will be shot along a route from Third Street South to Thirteenth Avenue South and Gordon Drive, winding up at the Naples Pier. Participants will include local radio and TV personalities, politicians, marching bands, sports teams and everyday ordinary citizens, plus several surprise appearances. The group has set up a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/lipdubnaples to solicit volunteers to work behind the scenes and to be on camera. Auditions will be held after the first of the year for slots in the video. Organizer David Elliott says several hundred volunteers will be needed. The logistics of this thing are really quite complicated. We have a fantastic team of people taking responsibility for everything from crowd control to staging, choreography and the many technical considerations were dealing with. Our goal is to make this a really fun community event, and to show the world that Naples and Collier County are great places to live as well as exciting, and full of energy. The film will make its premiere at Silverspot Cinema in Mercato, with details to be announced. It will also be posted online for the world to see, Mr. Elliott says. Sponsors of Lipdub Naples include Neapolitan Enterprises, The Third Street South Association, Don Drury and Renda Broadcasting. Committee members include Bill Barnett, Cyndee Wooley, Keeth Kipp, Eileen Elliott, Mary Kay Dedousis, Anthony Wilson, David Fralick, Brad Schiffer, Cori Higgins, Joel Banow, Rick Borman and Jerry and Diane Parillo. f

How you still give in your way You still live And thats the reason no crying today Hurricane CharleyBY PATRICIA A. BOUTILIER, NAPLESWorlds are altered rather than destroyed. Democritus Every night still, I dream of the storm. All I recall is the smell. It is a hurricane smell, fetid and tidal, all the soluble salts of the world whirled into the black-hole eye of a storm accreting matter to his center. The house lost power and the windows blew in. Water surged as the roof flew away. We moored in a tub on the second floor, surprised by the daylight that found us alive. Every night still, I dream of the storm. All I recall is the smell. It is Charleys smell, boiling and melting, a debris-choked soup of dank, murky water, plankton florescences glowed in the dark. His damned excrescences live in my head. Every night still, I dream of the storm. All I recall is the smell.

A ripe fig is very sweet, so it was often used when sugar was not available. The Mt. Washington Glass Co. of New Bedford, Mass., made fig-shaped containers for sugar and salt. The bottom was glass, the top silverplated. The company also used the figmold shape for saltshakers with metal tops and for toothpick holders and glue pots that were altered to have open tops. The fig-shaped holders were made of translucent glass, satin glass, frosted glass and shaded glass in all colors. Many of the figs also were decorated with hand-painted flowers or other designs. Some collectors call this shape beet, onion or garlic. The Mt. Washington fig pieces are popular, and some sell for thousands of dollars. Q: At an estate sale in the 1950s, I bought a cherry drop-front desk with Queen Anne legs. Its 39 inches high by 30 inches wide. There is a mark in a drawer that says: Wilhelm Furniture Co., Sturgis, Michigan. Manufacturers of library and sewing tables, ladies desks, bookcases. What is the desks value? A: Stebbins Furniture Co. was founded in Sturgis in 1887. It was renamed Stebbins-Wilhelm Furniture Co. in 1907 and became Wilhelm Furniture Co. sometime between 1913 and 1917. Wilhelm Co. made desks, radio cabinets, bookcases, tables and smoking stands in a variety of woods and styles. The company closed in 1939. A cherry Wilhelm Co. desk recently sold for $70. Q: My grandfather left us a three-handled porcelain tankard decorated with a blue and white medieval scene of a man and woman sitting at a table. The stamped mark on the bottom is a leafy wreath encircling a fancy monogram that appears to be CAC. Under the wreath is the word Lenox. How old is my tanKOVELS: ANTIQUES Fig-shaped figures celebrate revered sweet fruit b Q b a t terryKOVELnews@floridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTO This 4-inch fig-shaped sugar shaker with a silver-plated top was given a presale estimate of $3,000-$5,000 at a Humler and Nolan auction in Cincinnati.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 13-19, 2012 C19 kard? Could it have been made by the same Lenox company thats still around? A: Your three-handled tankard is called a tyg. Tygs were filled with liquor and passed around the table after a big meal. CAC stands for Ceramic Art Co., a firm founded in Trenton, N.J., in 1889 by Walter Scott Lenox (18591920) and Jonathan Coxon (1843-1911). Coxon sold his share of the company to Lenox in 1896, but the companys name didnt change to Lenox Inc. until 1906. It is the same Lenox that is still in business, although its ownership has changed. The mark on your tyg was used from about 1896 to 1906, the decade when Ceramic Art Co. was solely owned by Walter Scott Lenox. So its an antique. If its in excellent condition, it would sell for more than $100. Q: I own an interesting tattered, trimmed and mended scarf about 23 inches square. The design on it is printed in red and white and includes portraits of French government officials. The title in a banner at the top reads, Fourth Year of the French Republic 1795, Dr esses of the Representatives of the People. Another banner at the bottom reads, Members of the Two Councils and of the Executive Directory: also of the Ministers, Judges, Messengers, Ushers and Other Public Officers. My uncle is supposed to have brought this back from France after World War I. But why is it in English? And was it made for tourists? A: Your antique textile probably dates from much earlier than World War I. It is copied from a print published in a 1796 book with the same title as your textile. The book was published in France first, but it was soon translated into English and published in London. It shows the proper dress of government officials in the French Republic. This was the era of the French Revolution, and people in England were curious about what was going on in France. It is likely the English were amused by some of the clothes shown in the print, too, because many of the officials were expected to wear uniforms that look like Roman togas. If your textile were in tip-top shape, it could be very valuable. As it is, it might be best to donate it to a historical society. Q: I have one antique andiron from a set that belonged to my great-aunt, who was the niece of John Deere, the founder of the tractor company. Would one andiron be worth half as much as a pair? A: Unfortunately, a single andiron would sell for considerably less than half the price of a pair. Even if a collector did not want to use the andiron, one does not display as well as two. And John Deeres fame, in this case, is of no help. Tip: Put a pad under any small rug to keep it from slipping. The pad also protects it from wear.

VINOChill out with some cool wines for the dog days of summerWill summer ever end? By September, I often feel as if the heat has always been beating down on us relentlessly and always will. The only recourse is to find ways to chill out. And, of course, drinking some refreshing wine is always a pleasurable way to do that. While Im enjoying drinking lighter bodied white and roses, I just cant turn my back completely on reds. So here are some of the wines Ive enjoyed of late.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 13-19, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 www.VerginaRestaurant.com NEWS @ VERGINAChange is the engine of progressThe Star of Fifth Avenue is arising at new horizon! A New Chef, expert in seafood and connoisseur of Italian and French Cuisine, is expanding Verginas food selection. Made With Passion for Lasting Impressions. Recently Chef Michael Colter took over Vergina's Kitchen. As a seafood expert Chef Colter will be presenting Gourmet Dishes in a fine Mediterranean style. Coast is a shore thing for global flavors and chillout vibe As my dining companion and I watched the sun dissolve into the horizon behind a scrim of towering, billowy clouds worthy of a Thomas Cole painting, we wondered aloud why we dont stop to appreciate sunsets more often. This metaphysical moment was brought to us by the Edgewater Beach Hotel in Naples, where we had just enjoyed an exceptional dinner at Coast, the chic, modern lounge that serves internationally inspired cuisine to hotel guests as well as lucky visitors like us. Dating to the late 1960s, the storied Edgewater was once held by Blockbuster Video titan and former Miami Dolphins owner H. Wayne Huizenga. The property is now part of the Waldorf Astoria chain and has been fully modernized, but it retains some of its vintage charm. When Coast premiered in 2006, I recall being impressed by its sleek, sophisticated lounge vibe: black leather chairs, white linen tablecloths, shiny wooden floors, a dramatic cluster of red and gold pendant lights hanging under a huge, black ceiling medallion. Modern-styled couches for cocktail hour edge the dining space, which is really just an open extension of the lobby with chillout music providing a hip backdrop. Floor-toceiling windows frame views of the palmlined courtyard, swimming pools and the gulf beach just beyond. The dcor still feels fresh half a dozen years later, and the food remains as impressive as ever. Its hard to judge the service overall because only two other small parties dined when we did; but the staff appeared eager, attentive and knowledgeable. We settled in with well-chilled glasses of Murphy-Goode Sauvignon Blanc ($11), a versatile wine thats softly tart with hints of melon. The menu includes wine pairings with entrees, and this California fume was a perfect suggestion for the sea scallops to come. Freshly baked bread arrived quickly (no offseason corner-cutting happening here) with a pungent tapenade to spread. We quickly settled on appetizers from the relatively short list of five plates and two soups. A refreshing starter for summertime is the lush watermelon gazpacho ($7.75, or add crab or shrimp for $4 more). Light on the palate but possessing a mild kick, this classic chilled Spanish soup got an American twist from the melon, which added crunch and a touch of its signature sweetness to the tomato base. Spiked with alcohol it would make a memorable bloody Mary. I would gladly devour an entre-sized serving of the Moroccan-spiced lamb meatballs ($11 for the appetizer). Notes of mint, cinnamon and oregano danced across the tongue as the tender spheres of meat collapsed in our mouths. They were served in a thin pool of garlicky pomodoro that complemented the lamb very nicely. Coasts globetrotting menu continues its journey with main courses that touch down in Asia, Italy, France and the American South. In just nine dishes, the menu spans a range from the simple, family-friendly appeal of a burger with sea salt fries to the hearty comfort of a roasted chicken stuffed with goat cheese and leeks and the upmarket sophistication of beef tenderloin medallions with red wine demi-glace. Shrimp and grits ($23.75) strike close to home for Floridians, who are near enough geographically to the true South to share some culinary influences even if we are just as tied culturally to the flavors of our tropical neighbors in the Caribbean. Coasts impressive rendition of this omnipresent dish managed to hit all the right notes smoky-spicy Andouille sausage, sweet plump shrimp, creamy cheese grits, lush gravy while adding a few new ones with wilted spinach and tender mushrooms. All the components added flavor and body to the dish without weighing it down so that it landed in the stomach like a brick. Where grits are involved, thats saying something. From the South we moved on to the Far East, with the diver scallops ($26). An enticing scent of sesame oil took flight from the plate as it was set down and a painterly tangle of color came into view: red and white radish shavings, orange strips of carrot, green threads of julienned zucchini, dabs of yellow Asian mustard aioli atop each scallop. Too pretty to eat? Uh, no. The four scallops were beautifully bronzed on top and bottom without sacrificing the succulent pearly interior; bits of finishing salt added a pleasant crunch. Underneath was a bed of risotto made with coconut water, which actually came across more like the sweet sticky rice of Asian cooking. Desserts also were artfully plated on white teardrop shaped plates drizzled with strawberry coulis. The Key lime pie ($8) was satisfyingly traditional, and a lemon mascarpone mousse cake ($10) was perfection moist, light and creamy. After cleaning our plates once again, we strolled through the hotel courtyard to watch sunset with a few Edgewater guests. When the golden hour of last light had passed, we reluctantly returned to the real world of non-vacationers with the smug knowledge that we can Coast into a lovely sunset dinner any time.

As the Managing Broker of the only European real estate franchise licensed to operate in the US, I receive several calls a month from sellers asking for advice on what their agents can do to attract foreign buyers to their home. My advice always boils down to a simple concept: cast a wider net. Its easy to believe that in this day and age --the information age-putting a property on the internet would be enough to expose it to the widest possible audience. Sellers need keep in mind that while this is in principle true, most of the commonly employed e methods that are eective in the US market are not so overseas. Lets take the most common example of the multiple listing service (MLS). Property data is entered in the MLS and MLS data is propagated through local brokerage websites and US-based real estate portals such as Trulia and Zillow. is exposes t he property to many North American buyers. However, foreign buyers search for real estate in their language on the local version the search engine most popular in their country. e results they get are also in their language and on local portals that feature only those US p roperties advertised there by companies aware of the foreign portals existence and capable of entering their data in the sites native language. Two such portals, for example, include the French Holprop.fr and the German Immovelt.de. In speaking with foreign buyers, it also becomes evident that many still prefer getting their information from print media.
