In other words, you will see the heart of the matter or of the apple, as the case may be. The evening of Nov. 29, Beverley and Alan Horton hes the former editor of the Naples Daily News and one-time head of the E.W. Scripps Newspaper Division; shes a celebrated educator, and theyre the muscle that gave rise to the newly renamed Champions For Learning (formerly the Education Foundation of Collier County) will receive the 2012 Heart of the Apple Award in honor of their contributions to public education in Collier County. It is especially fitting that as our organization launches our new mission and name, we honor Alan and Beverley Horton, says Jim Hoppensteadt, chairman of the board for Champions For Learning. Their passion and commitment have inspired, and challenged, our community to think and act aspirationally in providing relevant learning experiences for Collier County students to gain the skills they need to succeed in life.

Literalists were tasked with naming this seminar, apparently. People with no sense of playful exaggeration. They took their job seriously, too. The Changing Landscape of Public Ethics in South Florida: Are We Making Progress? they called it. I would have called it something designed to ward off narcolepsy at least for a few minutes, while simultaneously getting to the heart of the matter: Going to hell in a hand basket, maybe. Or perhaps, Spitting on the sidewalk, fornicating in the alley, and hiding public records from the public ethics in the Sunshine State. Something like that. Whatever the title of this seminar and however one poses the question, however, I think the answer is obvious. Im told the seminar provides required credits to those who wish to remain members of their professional organizations in good standing. The AICP CM, for example. Dont worry, I dont know what it is, either. The Florida Bar, the Florida Board of Landscape Architecture, the Florida Association of Code Enforcement. So these people are mostly lawyers and planners, with an architect or two thrown in somewhere along the line? Ah-ha! (I dont know what that means, either.) But all of this raises an obvious question I will not bring up when I stand in all my glory before these cogs in the wheels of contemporary society: Why would they need somebody like me to spend 15 minutes talking about ethics towards the end of a long day, when they will get to hear 28 other presentations in an eight-hour period? The answer is woefully obvious: These people are in deep trouble. Any who remember pickle barrels will quickly recognize that these folks are scraping the bottom of one. Right off the bat I noticed that they distinguish between public and private ethics in the seminar title. How do you do that, exactly? Although Im an American, my thinking about this dates back some 2,500 years, to the Greeks. The state is the soul writ large, wrote Plato, who said he had heard it from Socrates, a man so ethical that instead of accepting an offer of escape he drank hemlock when sentenced to death so he could follow the law a very bad law restricting his speech to young people. That way, he reasoned, he could make an example of the bad law without disrespecting the notion of law itself, coincidentally forcing the powers that be to change it. I remembered this after standing on the lip of the subcontinent at the Tarpon Lodge in Pineland just before dusk, Sunday, with Dr. Robert Hilliard, an inspiration to me if there ever was one (you can read his comments about living his memorandum on ethics and inspiration, if you will in the front page story this week). As the sun sank toward the low green burr of mangrove islands across Pine Island Sound, dappling the sky above Cayo Costa and the Captivas in tangerine dollops, most people were standing around going Ooohh. Sometimes they varied that exclamatory expression with a heartfelt Awwwwww. I know because I was one of those people. Watching a sunset from a place like the Tarpon Lodge is tantamount to ending a day on which you discover youve won the lottery. Suddenly everything seems to be right with the world. Everything seems to be in its place. Theyre alright and youre alright and everybody else must be alright, too. And if they arent alright, its their fault because all they have to do to be alright is go out and win the lottery, just like you.Then Dr. Hilliard asked an ethical question, one that lies at the heart of both public and personal ethics. First, though, he studied the far horizon. He gazed at the long silver water and fading sky. He noted the roost-bound flights of pelicans, gulls, curlews and herons gliding homeward beneath the deepening tide of evening, as they have done on that coastline for millennia. He watched a single motorized fishing boat glide in from the great gulf beyond in near silence, as boats have always glided into the shelter of the sound and the greater Charlotte Harbor.And then he said, I wonder what the Calusa thought when they saw the first Spanish ship sailing in toward them. Suddenly everything changed, because the question itself held an implicit historic truth, one of which he was well aware: After the Spanish sailed in, European and American civilization destroyed the Calusa, rendering the Indians and a lot of other creatures extinct, eventually. I pattered on about how the Calusa had dominated the Southwest coast for centuries, forcing other tribes to serve them and tithe them, taking slaves, making human sacrifices, creating shell mounds and cities while also building canals that connected the gulf with points inland and possibly across the peninsula, and extending their empire by force. They were not very pleasant as a people, in other words, at least not by our standards, I concluded. Yes, but thats no reason to destroy them all, Dr. Hilliard replied. No. It certainly isnt. And asking the question what did the Calusa think? is a way of taking responsibility for the answer. Its a way of being Greek, and of recognizing that the obligation of the state, along with its character, is no different than the obligation of a person living and acting in the state. Ethics cannot be distinguished between personal and public behaviors not for journalists, not for public officials, not for planners or lawyers or military leaders or teachers or any others who participate in a society that begins every marriage of the soul and the state with only a single imperative: Do what you can to make us better. That is our obligation and our ethic at the same time, in or out of the office. In or out of a career. And I hope it doesnt take eight hours of seminar to remember it. p s e t m rogerWILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com COMMENTARY

So it is with gratitude. An article in a psychological journal a few years ago noted that throughout history, religious, theological and philosophical treatises have viewed gratitude as integral to well-being. Psychology has recently worked to quantify the wisdom of the ages and confirmed sure enough it was correct. A raft of recent research has established that grateful people are happier people. They are less depressed and less stressed. They are less likely to envy others and more likely to want to share. They even sleep better. As the journal article put it, empirical work has suggested gratitude is as strongly correlated with well-being as are other positive traits, and has suggested that this relationship is causal. Gratitude constitutes what philosopher David Hume called a calm passion. It doesnt have the theatrical potential of anger and hatred, or courage and sacrifice. Nonetheless, theres a reason it has been considered central to the good life and a good society by all major religions and by thinkers stretching from Cicero (Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others) to Oprah (Whenever you cant think of something to be grateful for, remember your breath). Gratitude acknowledges our dependence on others and the debt we owe because of it. Grateful people want, somehow, to return the favor of their undeserved windfall. It is a sentiment that, in the jargon, is pro-social. A leading figure in its study, Michael McCullough of the University of Miami, maintains that it binds us to others beyond the ties of family and of commercial transactions. Gratitude is at the root of patriotism, of the impulse to preserve and improve our patrimony. In a culture that tends to celebrate self-glorification, gratitude points us beyond our own demands and discontents. It inclines us to see all around us a world of gifts. What did we do to inherit a country that is free and prosperous? To deserve Charlie Parker or Mark Twain? To build the Golden Gate Bridge or the Chrysler Building? To measure up to the beauties of the Catholic mass or the Mormon Tabernacle Choir? Or simply to prove worthy of traffic lights and potable water? Without gratitude, William F. Buckley Jr. wrote, We are left with the numbing, benumbing thought that we owe nothing to Plato and Aristotle, nothing to the prophets who wrote the Bible, nothing to the generations who fought for freedoms activated in the Bill of Rights. He called for a rebirth of gratitude for those who have cared for us, living and, mostly, dead. The high moments of our way of life are their gifts to us. John Adams captured the grateful attitude when he acknowledged the hardships of this vale of tears while celebrating it all the same (if in anachronistic language): Griefs upon griefs! Disappointments upon disappointments. What then? This is a gay, merry world notwithstanding. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.We are not powerless to confront climate changeMillions of victims of Superstorm Sandy remain without power, but they are not powerless to do something about climate change. The media consistently fail to make the link between extreme weather and global warming. Through this catastrophe, people are increasingly realizing that our climate has changed, and the consequences are dire. One meteorologist who defies the norm is Dr. Jeff Masters, who founded the weather blog Weather Underground. As Sandy bore down on the East Coast, I asked Masters what impact climate change was having on hurricanes. He said: Whenever you add more heat to the oceans, youve got more energy for destruction. Hurricanes ... pull heat out of the ocean, convert it to the kinetic energy of their winds. Masters blog became so popular, it was purchased by The Weather Channel. As Sandy moved up the coast, Masters continued with our interview: When you do heat the oceans up more, you extend the length of hurricane season. And theres been ample evidence over the last decade or so that hurricane season is getting longer starts earlier, ends later. Youre more likely to have this sort of situation where a late-October storm meets up with a regular winter low-pressure system and gives us this ridiculous combination of a noreaster and a hurricane that comes ashore, bringing all kinds of destructive effects. Mitt Romney must rue that line in his Republican National Convention speech, days after Hurricane Isaac narr owly mis sed hitting Tampa, Fla., and the convention, when he quipped: President Obama promised to slow the rise of the oceans and to heal the planet. My promise is to help you and your family. Romney drew a big laugh from those gathered to nominate him. No one is laughing now. Sandys U.S. death toll has reached 50, with 8 million without power. Initial estimates put the cost of the damage at tens of billions of dollars. Romneys latest position on climate change is no surprise, since it conforms with his consistent pivot to the right, away from his previously held views. As recently as 2007, he told CNBCs Kudlow and Company, But no question about one thing its getting warmer, and [there are] a lot of good reasons for us to use less energy, to use it more efficiently and to develop sources here in this country that could allow us to be more independent of foreign sources. We also should not let President Barack Obama off the hook. Recall the presidential debates, where he continually boasted of his fossil-fuel credentials. Oil production is up, natural gas production is up, he said at Hofstra, during the second debate. Im all for pipelines. Im all for oil production. In none of the three presidential debates was climate change mentioned, even once, not by the major-party presidential candidates and not by the moderators. Masters partially attributes the lack of discussion to the power of the fossilfuel lobby: Youre talking about the oil and gas industry ... about the entire basis of the industrialized economy. With these sorts of storms, people are going to wise up at some point and say: Hey, whats going on? Maybe we shouldnt mess with the very forces that enable us to live on the planet Earth. ... Weve got to get self-preservation in our minds pretty soon, or this is just the start of things, Here we are in the year 2012; whats going to be happening in 2030 if were already seeing storms like this? Think Progress did an analysis of the 94 stories in major newspapers in the week leading to the superstorm. Not once was climate change mentioned. In a 600-page report issued in November 2011, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority assessed in detail the likely effects of climate change on every aspect of the state. The summary provides a litany of disasters likely to visit The Empire State in coming years, from floods, droughts and rising sea levels displacing entire communities to the complete flooding of the New York City subway system. Sound familiar? As power is restored to the millions without it, there is a power that cannot be taken from us. That is the power to decide, especially as we move into this election, that the issue of climate change, and what we can do about it, will never be excluded from the national debate again.

All lectures held at: Naples Daily News Community Room 1100 Immokalee Road, NaplesFor the past year, Dean Stansel, Ph.D., associate professor of economics at Florida Gulf Coast University, has been a guest on my show every Friday. Amid all the noise about the economy on talk radio and other outlets, I appreciate Deans disciplined and grounded yet entertaining commentary on the economic topics of the day. A fifth-generation Floridian, he was born in Miami in 1969 and moved with his family to Arcadia in 1977. He graduated third in his class from DeSoto High School, and with an interest in politics and public policy, enrolled at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C. In his first course in economics, however, he became fascinated with the discipline of economics and developed an interest in free market economics. While taking a directed reading course in classical liberal political philosophy, he discovered the works of J.S. Mill, Herbert Spencer, Friedrich Hayek and Robert Nozick. He later f ound the Cato Institutes work on Social Security privatization and did his honors paper in economics on the passage of the 1935 Social Security Act. He graduated from Wake Forest in 1991 with a bachelors degree in economics and political science and began an internship at the Cato Institute, a Washington, D.C., public policy research institute dedicated to the libertarian principles of individual liberty, limited government, the free market and the rule of law. He was serendipitously assigned to work with Stephen Moore, then director of fiscal policy studies (now senior economics writer and member of the editorial board at the Wall Street Journal). Their work together was not completed when Deans four-month internship was over, so the institute hired him as its first research assistant. Dean was eventually promoted to fiscal policy analyst at the Cato Institute and in just over seven years there, he authored or co-authored more than five dozen articles, including 40 op-ed articles for the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Investors Business Daily, Chicago Tribune and other publications. He also appeared on television and radio, and gave interviews to print reporters, testified before Congress and state legislatures and spoke on various policy forum panels. He left the Cato Institute in 1999 and two years later earned his doctorate in economics at George Mason University, where he studied under some of the nations leading scholars in public choice economics (including Nobel Laureate James Buchanan and his frequent coauthor, Gordon Tullock, who was a member of Deans dissertation committee). Before coming to FGCU in 2004, he taught for two years at Eastern New Mexico University.

In September 2011, Dean was one of five economists selected by the Economic Freedom Project to help publicize the findings of the Economic Freedom of the World 2011 Report (available at www.freetheworld. com) and the virtues of economic freedom in general. He met his wife, Robin, while they were both working at the Cato Institute. She worked in corporate philanthropy at Philip Morris U.S.A. for four years before becoming a full-time mother to Stephen, 9, and Susie, 6, who are homeschooled. At FGCU, Dean teaches principles of microeconomics, the first economics course that students take, as well as public sector economics and urban economics.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 But the ebb and flow of respiration is radically different than the process we call inspiration the breathing in not only of molecules infused with oxygen, but of molecules infused with experience, with temperament, with a communion of heart and mind so easy to recognize when it appears, yet so difficult to define. What does it take to be truly inspired? Here we share the answers of men and women who have changed the way we live, or what we see and experience, or how well be remembered as cohabitants of Southwest Florida in the second decade of the 21st Century. They live among us. They are artists all of paint or the written word. Of food or the market economy. Artists of compassion, of community, of technologies. We know them, more or less. They get up in the morning and pull on their trousers like everybody else. They breathe in and out like everybody else. But somehow, they strike us as more than respirators. Instead, they inspire by being themselves inspired. Why and how, we asked them? Heres what they told us: Travel into battle, into a land of oppression or poverty, into a faith, into a painting by Jackson Pollock or a Nancy Silverton cookbook or a Bronx streetscape. Love your fellow man, the spirit of the Good Samaritan, the girl next door, the memory of your grandparents, your children, Jesus, Walt Disney. Loathe yourself. Bigots. Mere comfort. Resist complacency, ease, the short answer, mere flag-waving. Engage and act the big world with a big heart and mind. Go out and give something to somebody. Go out and fight something that needs fighting. And finally, remember whats beautiful, whats strong, whats possible, what rings in the music of tomorrow however unlikely it may sound today. Thats what they tell us. Heres what they said.

I JUST GO OUT AND TRY TO DO MY WORK every day to the best of my ability, based on my faith, my Christian work ethic. Our business is a faith-led company, its not faith-based. That implies nonfor-profit and all mission related. We pray at our business meetings and ask for guidance and counsel from God to go use the talents hes given us to the best of our abilities that glorify him. We are capitalists, too. We look at being a capitalist, as: dollar bills are certificates of appreciation. When we help out other humans with our talents, they give us certificates of appreciation with dead presidents on them. They allow us to barter and trade, which is whats been going on since the first humans. But in order to do something successful and long lasting, it has to be built on a solid foundation of core values and ethics. Without my partners my counselors I would be a lot less interesting to talk to. We live, work and want to raise our families in this community. So we have a responsibility not only to conduct business in a sustainable manner, but to give back to the community. That inspires me to do a lot of notfor-profit service.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 NEWS A9 WHEN MARCUS JANSEN STARTED PAINTing his urbanscapes, he did not know he was starting a movement. He simply started painting what he saw walking around the streets of the Bronx, riding the trains of New York City. Nothing was really, truly depicting my surroundings, what was going on around me, says the artist now credited as the innovator of urban expressionism. I had nothing to identify with, nothing to show how I feel. A lot of art was commercial-like and irrelevant. I was genuinely concerned. Out poured his art, rebellious and raw, instinctive and without inhibition. Through his paint, he joins the big conversation, he opens up social dialogue. His recent works strap a gasmask on Dorothy, or attach a television head to a sinister suit in a shady setting. I ride that line between abstract and figurative, Mr. Jansen says. I use abstract, expressionistic brushstrokes to achieve that figurative feel. His colors are graffiti-vibrant, but his hand lends the refinement of depth and form, a nod to his studies in Germany. When he paints, he paints messy. He listens to classical music and he creates. He starts with a piece of wood, the grains giving him those edgy lines. He fills in with a brush. No sketch, all emotion. Hes not afraid to let the paint run. Im very spontaneous, very impatient when I paint. It has to come fast, it has to be truthful, thats the only way to achieve anything new, he says. You must allow yourself to be free. We never really are free, were always attached to something, some rule or some technique or something I go to a space where I feel completely free and allow what happens to happen The paint does something, I react to the paint. The paint does something again, I react again. Mr. Jansen feels the less he thinks about his paintings, the better they turn out. Too much thought limits his creative process. He strips himself of all expectation and when he steps back to look at his work when its finished, he says, Im just as surprised as anyone else.How do you bring the feel of a New York loft to the banks of the Caloosahatchee?Buy a church and paint it white. Before its metamorphosis into Marcus Jansens Fort Myers studio, 1922 Evans Ave. was a church. The walls were yellow, the ceiling brown, the floors carpet. Mr. Jansen saw it in white. He transformed the building into his Unit A Contemporary Art Space. I saw it like this, exactly the way it is today, says Mr. Jansen, who immediately took out the fluorescent lights and put spotlights in. As for the rest of the renovation, the painter renders it, One big paint job. He took out the carpet and thought of painting the floor gray, then decided to leave it alone. Painting it would take too much character away from the building. I decided to keep it raw. I just love it the way it is, the scars in it, it adds an element to my work. It reminds you of a New York Chelsea studio, says Mr. Jansen, though truthfully, he feels his space transcends the city. When youre here, you dont have the sense youre anywhere in particular. You lose touch with where you are. You feel isolated. You have to appreciate whats inside here while youre here, theres no other way. There are no windows for you to look out of and distract you. That, I like.The work within the workIn his painting Secret Gardens, larger-than-life mushrooms tower over farmhands tending to vast fields of green. A businessman saunters in with his briefcase. Surveillance cameras record the whole scene.This piece was inspired by Monsanto and the genetic manipulation of food, says Mr. Jansen, who gravitates to themes he finds threatening to humanity. Reading about Monsanto in the news, a company known for its genetically engineered seeds and agricultural patents, caught his attention. He sees his workers in the field evoking some sense of slave labor. The man in the suit, the master, with his briefcase. If I told stories of a darker nature, people generally, I think, wouldnt pay as much attention, Mr. Jansen says. I like using paradoxes. With a darker theme, I like to bring in some kind of playful, innocent, lighter subject matter, hence the little girl swinging from the mushroom, his interjection of youth and beauty. But above her playfulness, surveillance cameras loom. Im a big fan of George Orwell, Mr. Jansen says. The emergence of surveillance on the populace, I find absolutely horrific. But above all, above his surveillance cameras and manipulated fields, Mr. Jansen leaves white space, like a light, his sense of hope.Athena PonushisMARCUS JANSEN CHALLENGE: INSPIRATION:Starting an art movement. Feel it, dont think about it.CHALLENGE: INSPIRATION:Getting rich .Running a lemonade stand (or a multimillion dollar business) Im very spontaneous, very impatient when I paint. It has to come fast, it has to be truthful, thats the only way to achieve anything new. You must allow yourself to be free.Former Neapolitan Brian Presley is senior partner at Presley Beane Financial Services and owner of Acorn Ranch Inc., a cattle operation in Punta Gorda.I WAS ALWAYS FASCINATED AND EXCITED by doing projects and making money. I did all the things kids do, lemonade stands and newspaper routes and all of that. I was kind of monomaniacal; asked what do you want to do when you grow up and I said, Id want to be rich. I think there is an excitement and a magic to creating a new enterprise of any kind, small or big, and having an idea and wrestling with the strengths and weaknesses and coming up with a positive result. Ive run a very large company and a lemonade stand and they have a lot in common. You have to know your markets, pricing, whether or not your potential clients and customers want it. I mean can you imagine the success of a lemonade stand in February in Buffalo, N.Y.? Its not likely to happen. So I think the childhood experience in entrepreneurship is tremendously valuable. I would say the lemonade stand started when I was 7 or 8. It was either an Our Gang comedy or a Shirley Temple movie and they were selling lemonade and I was like, I can do this. I moved the lemonade stand (from the middle of the block) to the corner where I had a stop sign. Thats no different than what iPad is doing right now. They brought their product to the market in the way you wanted it. I brought that product to them in the way that was less of a problem. And thats called market positioning. The second year I ended up putting two stands up because there was a stop sign at each corner. My brother on one and I was on one.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 FRED KLAUCKEMr. Laucke founded the World of Science chain and opened 190 stores. He lives in Naples.In 1969, smoking was becoming a big issue. We were developing products to teach students about the harm in smoking. These were science kids they used rubber stoppers and beakers and chemicals. Eventually, we developed a catalog, a way to order different science supplies, but schools kept asking for a science store, where they could buy these products over the counter. We were asked to open a store in a museum, then went on to open 190 stores in 33 states. Theres never a coincidence in life World of Science was a store that brought together all the different aspects of nature and permitted young people and adults alike to find products that were both educational and fun. We were probably the largest fossil and mineral seller in the country. We sold telescopes, everything imaginable in the science and nature arena. We went public in 1997. We were bought out in 2000. Mr. Klaucke now feels inspired to help people through his foundation, The Lion and The Lamb. When he thinks of what his World of Science stores meant to him, he shares what one mother said his stores meant to her son: My son, every week, wants to go to your store to buy something. He saves up his allowance and always goes to your store to spend his money. Athena PonushisVERNON PEEPLESA former state representative, Mr. Peeples is a historian and the author of Punta Gorda in the Beginning.What inspired me to document history? I dont know if it was inspiration or not. I dont know if inspiration had anything to do with it. Ive lived in Punta Gorda since 1933. I lived on the second floor above my parents grocery story. I came in contact, on a regular basis, with people who were the earliest settlers of Punta Gorda. I got to know them. I delivered their groceries to them. I made appointments to go see them and talk at great lengths about early Punta Gorda. They were elderly and I liked the stories they told. I wouldnt call that inspiration, maybe absorption. An added interest for me was that my family has lived here since the 1920s Im interested in my community, interested in my family, and because theyve resided in Florida so long, theyve left fingerprints I can follow, like old newspapers and legislative journals. Writing down history, writing these stories, I had no specific purpose other than enjoyment. That was my only reason. And by writing them down, Im sharing that joy, sharing their stories, with other people. Athena PonushisJOE CATTIA resident of Fort Myers, Mr. Catti is president and CEO of FineMark National Bank & TrustWe do so much that does not revolve around banking I believe that we all have a responsibility to give back, its ingrained in our culture here as an organization, its in our DNA, the want to help others. Weve been so fortunate What we did through the motivation of friends, they were interested in helping foster children, they introduced the idea, we took the ball and ran with it we have semi-adopted a young man whos aging out of foster care. We brought him into the bank. Hes working here part-time. We helped him find an apartment. Hes registered at Edison State College. Were helping him through college, helping him learn responsibility. Its our goal to be in his life forever. Hes 18 years old. Were mentoring him, you might say. The other day I asked him if he was glad to be here, he said absolutely. I asked him why and he said he knows the people here truly care about him and teaching him responsibility and also teaching him how to make a difference and give back to the world. FineMark National Bank encourages their employees to volunteer through a nonprofit of their choice half a day every month with pay. Mr. Catti says, I copied that idea from Chicos. Athena Ponushis

Her books feature heroine Theresa MacLean, who like Mrs. Black in real life, is a crime scene investigator. What inspires you to write?I dont know. We never know. I just always have. Ive made up stories since I was a kid. I wrote stories since I was a kid. Id do what we now call fan fiction, you know. Wed put ourselves in our favorite TV shows, and of course wed get to be the heroes and everything and get the guy, and you know, they just got longer and longer until I graduated from college and became a secretary cuz Id majored in political science, so I graduated with no marketable skills and became a secretary for 10 years so I was sitting in front of a word processor all day so I thought what the heck, Ill write a novel. How hard can it be? So what inspires me to write stories? I dont really know. I think my life was always boring. And you gotta remember, when I was a kid we had three TV channels, no Internet, no cable, no DVDs. You had to make your own entertainment so I read constantly, for as long as I can remember, book after book after book.What keeps you going, continuing to write?Um, money. As long as they keep giving me money, Ill keep writing them. But then I remember that how many years and years I wrote when nobody was giving me money and I still kept doing it so I really dont know if thats true. You just get a good idea, ya know? You just get a good idea and you have to go with it.What inspired Defensive Wounds? I had actually written this whole other book that will hopefully be published the year after next, used a whole meth lab explosion in Cleveland. Anyway, it had a lot about cooking meth and meth labs and how thats all done, which probably came from watching Breaking Bad. My agent didnt like it. I dont know what it was, she did not like it. Didnt like the whole story. Thought meth addicts did not make sympathetic victims and everything else. Basically they want your victims to be young, rich, and beautiful. Preferably all three, but at least one of those things. So anyway I said, Well, all right. Ill try and come up with something else. We were driving back from New Orleans and so I threw the phone down in disgust and said, All they ever want to read is about serial killers killing beautiful young women. Thats all they want. Thats all they ever want to sell. They think thats all America wants to read. So my husband said, Do you want some help? So between like Tampa and Bradenton we like hashed out most of the plot for Defensive Wounds. Hes like, Well, OK, youve got a serial killer, who do you want to kill? And Im like, I refuse to kill beautiful young women. I just refuse! So then we decided, well, defense attorneys, them we could kill.Evan WilliamsLISA BLACK CHALLENGE: INSPIRATION:Killing defense attorneys. After your agent rejects the book youve spent countless hours on, come up with something new.

There, his grandfather, a fisherman and entrepreneur, had given each of his seven children, and his own brothers and sisters, a parcel of land. DeAngelis-Diamond now employs 82 people who together contribute money and effort to 50 charities and nonprofits locally, nationally and internationally. The company which also includes separate entities known as DD Healthcare Construction and Build LLC is one of the few to persevere through the recession. It did $80 million in revenues last year and charts $100 million so far this year. (In 2007, by comparison, it tallied $125 million). WHEN I WAS A KID, I LOVED WALT DISNEY. I grew up when Sunday nights was The Wide World of Disney. You got to watch these cool features. Disney himself would come on, and I personalized it. He was much more than movies or a theme park, he was an innovator. It didnt make me want to be a filmmaker, it made me want to change things for the better. He had this vision known as Epcot the Experimental Prototype City of Tomorrow. It was a city where people lived and worked and played, where they grew their own food and went to school. All of it was contained in an ideal city. I was inspired by that, and I thought of going into architecture when I was in college, but I went into construction because I didnt want to be told what blueprint to draw, like an architect might. My grandfather owned fishing boats and sold to all the restaurants in Palm Beach he was an entrepreneur who grew up in the Great Depression, and he inspired me in a lot of ways. He would not borrow money for anything. When he bought a new car he paid for it in cash. To build a house, he hired construction workers and paid them in cash as they went. I was drawn to all that, but I was also drawn to the arts. I fell in love with artists like Van Gogh, Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock. People said they were crazy, people thought they were insane, but you were drawn to their work. And they lived these wonderfully extravagant lifestyles, not in the way of wealth but extravagant, with Paris and the cafes and their gypsy-type lives. Theres another tangent in my life, too: missionary work. Again, I had a father-in-law who was a missionary, and I went on trips with him to the Amazon and South America, and to Africa the Sudan and Darfur. You see these needs, so if you have the means, I dont know how you couldnt try to help. We brought medicine, water and supplies and now I support Kimberly Smith, a woman who is very brave, very heroic, and has over 300 children there. Shes involved in stopping sex trafficking, human trafficking, and her website is www.makewaypartners.org. When you travel, you realize, this is the world we live in. To me and I know its a clich to say this but for those to whom much is given, much is required. And if you live in the United States, youre rich.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 NEWS A13 Dr. Hilliard, a Sanibel Island resident, earned a Ph.D. degree from Columbia University after serving as a Purple Heart combat infantry soldier in World War II, the beneficiary, like millions of other veterans, of the federal governments GI Bill. His careers include work in the media as a newspaper editor, New York drama and film critic; writer, director and performer in professional theater, radio and television; and service in the federal government as chief of public broadcasting of the Federal Communications Commission. He also worked in academia as a dean of graduate studies and a dean of continuing education. A professor emeritus, he has been honored for his role in helping save the lives of thousands of concentration camp survivors at the end of the World War II in Germany. He is the author or co-author of more than 35 books and author of 10 produced plays. He continues to work. GROWING UP IN A NEIGHBORHOOD IN Brooklyn, New York, that harbored religious and racial prejudice, I saw how bigotry easily leads to hate that destroys not only its victims but the humanity of the hater as well. As an American soldier during and after World War II in Europe, I saw first-hand the extremes to which bigotry can go if we do not individually and collectively act to stop it. Most Americans most people in the world still have little or no real concept of the horrors the Holocaust perpetrated not only against Jews, but political dissenters, Catholic and Protestant clergy, homosexuals, Roma, and other groups. The more I read, the more I appreciated educator Horace Mann saying, be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity, which I adapted to, be ashamed to die until youve made the world a better place than you found it. And I was impressed with John Stuart Mills statement, If all mankind minus one were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind. Can we stop the political, social and economic discrimination that denies equal access to the fruits of the earth for most people while providing largesse to a comparatively few super-rich and super powerful? Can we stop the mind control over the many by the few who control virtually all of the worlds media, brainwashing them so that, as we see even in presumably democratic elections, they vote against their own best interests? Can we provide an equal opportunity to be heard from even the least powerful of us, no matter how agreeable or disagreeable we find their words? When I returned to college after the war I was a pre-law major, intending to change the world for the better by emulating the great civil rights-civil liberties lawyer, Clarence Darrow. After mistakenly enrolling in a script writing course that turned out to be a course in playwriting, I decided I could more effectively change the world by channeling George Bernard Shaw instead. In the course of what, in the present phase of humankinds evolution, is a comparatively long life, have I contributed to making the world a better place? Have my books and plays made a difference? I dont know. Have my college courses, stressing students responsibilities in relation to political, social and economic issues made a difference? I dont know. Did my years as a federal government official have a positive impact on society? I dont know. I hope so. But without the perspective of history, I dont really know. One thing we do know: if we have children we can, as they grow and mature, have an impact on their thoughts, actions, and commitments. I have been fortunate. My son, Mark, is a military historian and founder of Heart of Oak, studying wars as the best way of learning how to prevent them. My daughter, Mara, is co-founder of D.C.s Partnership for Civil Justice, arguably the leading and most successful law firm in the country fighting to protect our civil liberties. The point is, for my own conscience, I have tried: Every day in every way that I know how, in accordance with whatever skills and abilities I may have. The point is, if everyone tried to do something every day, according to their individual skills and abilities, no matter what they are, to make the world a little better place for people less fortunate than themselves, even in the smallest of increments, we will have justified our existence on this earth.

Participants were civic leaders, board members and founders of The Roundtable, The Partnerships advisors. Working in eight focus groups, they outlined 59 initiatives to pursue in the next three years. Among the highlights: Recruiting and mentoring more citizens to engage in civic action through the Leadership Collier Foundation and other programs All agreed that there are childcare, mental health and training challenges to be resolved need to be resolved, and that everyone in the community benefits from more balanced, dedicated and energetic people serving in political, elected and advisory leadership positions. Educating everyone about the importance of a diversified economy as the way to create jobs We must provide balanced information about business policy issues advancing Collier County and do more to promote the positive aspects of our community. The Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce must champion the development of business climate diversity. Engaging our allies to collaborate Real progress can be achieved if our schools, colleges and universities team up with industry. Connecting the opportunities for students with the needs of local commerce is a smart goal. The chamber needs to advocate for joint action. Emphasizing regional coordination Many in attendance shared examples of the kind of turf and silo thinking that inhibits our progress. The effectiveness of all our governments and our companies can be enriched, without violating their integrity, if we focus on leveraging common assets and minimizing joint barriers. The chambers partnership with Florida Gulf Coast University and the Lee County Horizon Council to attract more jobs to our region was resoundingly applauded, as were initiatives to prompt business executives to be school Principals for a Day and educators to serve as Executives for a Day in our firms. Enhancing communication from the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce Our website, which now has approximately 700,000 unique visitors annually and 1.5 million hits each month, is being redesigned to become more user friendly and to promote business development, the arts, medical and culinary tourism plus news from the Asian, Hispanic and German communities. Our Business Currents magazine, which reaches 10,000 monthly, our social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Flickr and YouTube) plus our eBlasts, which include nearly 3,000 contacts, each need to go to the next level. Embarking on a branding message to champion Collier Countys qualities to all residents, year-round and seasonal alike As Dr. Allen Weiss, president and CEO of NCH Healthcare System, recently wrote, we must cherish and promote the quality of life we enjoy here. Our health care is among the best in the U.S. We have terrific educational resources. Our safety is the best, thanks to outstanding police, fire and EMS officers. And we are nationally noted as a center for arts and culture, hospitality and wealth management. Also as part of the day at ESC, we recognized two Naples-based entrepreneurs who have recently received national honors. Position Logic was named by Inc. magazine as one of Americas fastest growing private companies, and Didrick Medical was among 12 of 70,000 small business applicants in America to be awarded $250,000 by Chase and Living Social. Dan Didrick capped the day when he praised the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce for encouraging him to continue his inventive efforts. He in turn encouraged the chamber to continue its vigorous efforts to help make Collier County the best place to invest, work, live and visit. Michael Reagen, Ph.D., is the president and CEO of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, the largest of 25 chambers in the five-county Southwest Florida region.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 A19 receive the Heart of the Apple will be the famous Yale University chaplain and Civil Rights activist, the late William Sloan Coffin. A Presbyterian clergyman and self-described Christian revolutionary, he first roared onto the Yale campus on a motorcycle in the late 1950s, then spent the next 18 years there. It seems Rev. Coffin could be at least partly responsible for the remarkable efforts of the Mr. and Mrs. Horton here in Collier County. Heres how Mrs. Horton relates the story: In the early 1960s, she was a student at Vassar College and Mr. Horton was a student at Yale. She often took a weekend bus from Vassars Hudson River Valley campus to New Haven, to visit him. As part of the courtship that became a marriage after each graduated in 1965, they attended Rev. Coffins sermons in the Yale chapel and discussed him with other Yalees and their companions over meals. He stirred the conscience, Mrs. Horton recalls. His sermons were not so much about burning the draft card (he famously recommended civil disobedience when it came to draft cards) as they were about giving back. Mr. Horton often talked about a career using journalism to right wrongs in society, she adds. Later, he became a prize-winning investigative reporter, Washington correspondent and editor and publisher. But on beautiful, clear days he would sometimes consider becoming a minister, she says. Whatever vocation the couple embraced, they would be bound to it on moral grounds, she understood which explains why Rev. Coffins spirit will be with them when they accept the Heart of the Apple Award. At its best, after all, newspapering is a moralists career, a vocation that calls those who wish to make society a better place just like education calls to such souls. Mrs. Horton started programs for gifted students and others devoted to great books and the arts in various communities across the country as her husbands newspaper career ascended through them. They raised raised two sons (one now a Scripps employee in Cincinnati) and moved to Naples for the first time in 1987. Mrs. Horton taught English at Naples High and started the schools first program for struggling students. After one more career move back to Cincinnati, they returned to Naples as retirees in 2004. The Scripps motto is, Give light and people will find their own way, notes Mrs. Horton. The saying fits her husband precisely. While some take to the golf course, a boat, the south of France or a Barcalounger in retirement, the Hortons have not. They come from stiffer cloth, which is why theyre being honored with the Heart of the Apple. Mr. Horton, one of the founders of the Education Foundation, led the effort three years ago to enlist many community voices in a single visionary statement that became the Collier County School Districts strategic plan. Its all about the children, Mr. Horton tries to remind the individuals and education committees with whom he consults on a regular basis. We feel good about our public schools here in Collier, but rather pessimistic about public schools in general, in Florida or the United States, Mrs. Horton says. In particular, she says, I have misgivings about all this testing. If there is one thing she and her husband would desire, she says, it is this: We would like the parents of students in public schools to sit up. And jump in. And be involved. And why? Because its all about the students.

UNDERCOVER HISTORIANChokoloskee trading post preserves the pioneer way of lifeChokoloskee Island lies just four miles south of Everglades City and across the causeway that was completed in 1956, bringing accessibility to its roughly 400 residents. Originally called Comfort Island, its name was changed to the Seminole word for old house in 1891. While the land in this area is very low-lying, Chokoloskee actually reaches 20 feet above sea level, thanks to the shell mounds built more than 2,000 years ago by the Calusa Indians. Historical records show that Chokoloskee was inhabited by Indians for more than 1,500 years before European explorers arrived there. Modern-day descendants of the Smallwood family tell us that Chokoloskee was settled in 1874. Through the hard efforts of Charles Greenleigh C.G. McKinney, a post office was established to serve the roughly two dozen families who lived there. Mr. McKinney was well known for his local services as a dentist and a shopkeeper, as well as for delivering babies and penning a weekly column that ran for more than 20 years in the American Eagle. (As if that werent enough to seal his place in local history, the Sage of Chokoloskee was also grandfather to the late Totch Brown.) Mail originally came to the island by boat from Key West. As the railroad lines expanded into Southwest Florida, it came from Fort Myers into Everglades, where it was put onto a boat for delivery to the people of Chokoloskee. Then the causeway opened, bringing islanders within reach of the outside world. With the new road came electricity, another boon to the locals, who had depended on generators for power. That same year, 1891, Charles Sherrod Ted Smallwood first visited Chokoloskee. Five years later, after moving around from place to place, he returned to settle down. He married Mamie House in 1897, and the two moved into a two-room house on the east side of the island. Two years later, Mr. Smallwood became the largest landholder on the island, after purchasing claims to the former landowners who were descendants of the Santini family. The Smallwoods would eventually open a store in their home, about 10 years later. And after yet another decade of saving, in 1917 Mr. Smallwood bought the lumber and built the trading post thats still in use today (the building was raised on pilings in 1925 to protect it from flooding). Resourceful and enterprising, Mr. Smallwood was also blessed with a photographic memory. A farmer by trade who only had a third-grade education, he quickly turned the store into the center of community activity, while also creating a cultural bridge between the Indians and the white man. He mastered the Indian language and was so trusted by them that he kept their money for them at his store, which was called the Indian Bank. Both the Seminole and Miccosukee Indians brought in their animal hides, bird plumes, fish and produce to trade for other goods. Mr. Smallwood ran the trading post and relocated the post office to the store and served as postmaster for 35 years before he retired. The entire Smallwood familys life revolved around the trade at the store, which remained open until 1982. Of the six children born to Mamie and Ted, Thelma would pick up the reins upon her fathers retirement. She never married, and the store and post office were her life, much as they had been to her father, until she retired. The other Smallwood children were Marguerite, Robert, Glenn, Ted Jr. and Nancy. The baby of the family, Nancy died in 2006 at the age of 84 w T i A i f maureenSULLIVAN-HARTUNGmshwrites@gmail.com w e t c a b w I t t s i n a h p g t c s t h w a w 1 t w h n CHRIS HANCOCK / COURTESY PHOTOThis 1917 photograph shows Mamie and Ted Smallwood with five of their six children: Thelma, Marguerite, Robert, Ted Jr., and Glenn.

For several years after the Smallwood Trading Post closed in 1982, it was subjected to vandalism and the harsh Florida elements. Lynn McMillin, a daughter of Nancy Smallwood began her restoration crusade in 1990, following a preservation feasibility study that determined the old store could indeed be salvaged. The arduous inventory was a labor of l ove, and the store now serves as the perfect time capsule of Southwest Floridas pioneer history. Visitors can see the ledgers that logged the daily transactions of the local settlers, when bread cost a mere 10 cents. Furnishings and other memorabilia are also prominently displayed. A large kitchen/cooking area is complete with a table set for dining, just as it was as a welcome for weary travelers way back when. And there, just off the kitchen with a flyswatter in hand, sits a life-size replica of Mr. Smallwood, still watching over his beloved store, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. The Smallwood Trading Post is at 360 Mamie St. on Chokoloskee Island. Its open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week. For more information, call 695-2989. Maureen Sullivan-Hartung arrived in Naples in 1981. Following a yearlong stint as a reporter for the former weekly Everglades Echo newspaper, she began freelance writing. Her first book, Hidden History of Everglades City & Points Nearby, was published in 2010 by The History Press in South Carolina.

The Womens Fund commissioned the study by the Regional Economic Research Institute at Florida Gulf Coast University in order to benchmark progress, inform public policy, set funding priorities and programming and to inspire demand for additional knowledge about the status of women and girls in Southwest Florida. Among the positive attributes revealed by the research: A greater percentage of girls than boys here graduate from high school. More women are registered to vote than men. Nearly 5 percent of women are selfemployed in their own incorporated business. Women currently have lower rates of unemployment. But other key findings cause concern: Median annual earnings for women are about 87 percent of earnings among men in Southwest Florida. Women own only 26 percent of Southwest Florida businesses. Only 67 percent of Southwest Florida corporate boards include women. No women represent Southwest Florida in the U.S. House or Senate. Homeownership rates for women are substantially less than overall homeownership.Brenda Tate, president of the fund, says the findings have prompted the fund to investigate programs that support financial and educational opportunities for local women. One is a leveraged savings program to assist low-to-moderate income women in building financial assets for education/ training, first home purchase or business startup/expansion. The other is a program to offer women business owners access to capital for start-up or expansion paired with training and counseling. The success of such programs will depend on the funds collaboration with partners such as the Small Business Development Center, CredAbility.org, and financial institutions in the region, Ms. Tate says. The mission of The Womens Fund of Southwest Florida is to raise money through federal and state grants and through relationships with individual and corporate donors, and to employ a strategic grantmaking model to fund programs and organizations that address the critical needs of women and girls in Southwest Florida. In addition to Ms. Tate, founding members of the board are: Lou Pontius, chair; Lalai Hamric, vice chair; and Linda Uhler, secretary/treasurer.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA28 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 NCH Hospital Ball will fund 10 high-tech incubatorsThe giraffes stole the show and reaped the benefits at the recent 54th annual NCH Hospital Ball. Thanks to the ball committee and 450 NCH friends and volunteers in attendance, we were able to supplement the proceeds with a special auction that will allow for the purchase of 10 high-tech infant incubators affectionately known as Giraffe Beds at a cost of $40,000 each.Before the auction, guests watched a video of a family whose premature twin daughters were aided by the single Giraffe incubator we possessed at the time the girls were born. Now, we will have enough Giraffes to care for all our preemies.We also honored the Nurses of Excellence, announced our Physician of the Year and recognized our Honorary Chair Lavern Gaynor, who shared her parents early 1950s vision of a hospital existing in Naples. Those early founders would be so pleased with our progress.The 54th annual ball focused on development of our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, which will double in size this spring with construction at the North Naples Hospital Birth Place. More than 3,000 babies are born at the NNH Birth Place each year, and we have outgrown the space.Our goal of keeping the vast majority of premature babies and their parents close to home remains prevalent. Dr. Jorge Perez and his team of neonatologists are in house 24/7, which has greatly improved our ability to care for smaller babies with complicated problems. Dr. Perezs group donated one of the new Giraffes.Michele Thoman, our chief nursing officer, was pleased to recognize the following outstanding nurses and support staff: Elita McRae, R.N., Thelma Hodges Nurse Mentor of the Year Downtown Deborah DOrazio, R.N., Thelma Hodges Nurse Mentor of the Year North Naples Jennifer Hiatt, R.N., Rising Star Downtown.

While its good to have everyone together and a big garden planned for spring there was one change I made for one of them that was long overdue: I ended my cats roaming days. In effect, I was taking my own advice. Im well aware that a cat who has been used to going out as he pleases wont accept a closed door quietly. But when you m ove, everythings new, and a cat wont miss territory he hasnt claimed as his own. Six months later, Ilario, my fluffy orange tabby, is content with the change. As am I, and thats because in the house I left behind remains the memory of the cat who never came home. Clara was a sweet little thing who rarely left the yard. Neither cat did, which is why I indulged them when they asked to go outside. After she disappeared, I did all the things youre supposed to: let the microchip registry know, put out flyers, checked the shelters. I never saw her again. Id never meant for either cat to go outside, and after Clara disappeared, I closed the door on Ilario. It didnt go well. He yowled, he paced and he threw himself at the window screens. And whenever he could, hed take advantage of the opportunity to slip out. The new house was easier to secure than the old one, and Ilario has adjusted well to indoor life. Thats because I made sure it works for him. Hes an active cat, and Ive worked hard to keep him that way. Some tips: Set aside time every day to play with your cat. Cat fishing poles, with strings ending in feathers or other cat-attracting toys, are a great way to get your cat moving. Some cats love chasing dots of light from a laser pointer, while others can be encouraged to chase toys and even retrieve them. Offer your cat ways to play when youre not around. Cat trees and tunnels can be great for cavorting or for hiding when a cat just wants to be left alone. Check out toys stuffed with catnip for extra appeal, or those puzzle toys that keep a cats interest by making play a test of both body and mind. Make getting food more difficult for your cat. All most cats have to do to eat is waddle over to a full dish. End free-feeding, and make a cats food hard to get. Break the daily measured portion into smaller meals, and put these small plates in places that require jumping or climbing to find. Some cats may also enjoy puzzle toys that make them work to get out bits of kibble. Consider safe outdoor space. Converting a screened-in porch to a feline jungle gym will give your pet more reasons to stay active. Remember that cats like heights, so build in tempting overhead spaces that require effort to reach. Theres nothing a cat likes better than looking down on people, after all! I wish the world were safe enough that Ilario could enjoy the little farm I have now, but I know its not. We live on a road where people drive by at highway speeds, and every night I can hear the cries of coyotes. So Ive compromised, and its working out well for us both. Cats can and do live happily indoors. Whatever you do, dont keep your cat inside and offer nothing in exchange for the pleasures of nature youre denying him. Enrich the indoor environment, and youll have a cat whos not only safer, but also healthier and every bit as content as one who comes and goes at will. COURTESY PHOTONo longer free to roam, Ilario enjoys a life indoors with plenty to keep him busy.

SW Floridas Fastest Growing Mortgage Bank! www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 MONEY & INVESTING Figure out what kind of equity manager is right for youRetail and institutional investors have a basic choice in equity manager selection. One choice is passively managed equity portfolios for which performance/return is tied to an equity index. The other is actively managed equity portfolios that offer their unique portfolios return which might be better or worse than their relevant benchmark indexs return. For example, an S&P indexed portfolio would hold 500 stocks in specific weightings. Most recently (October 30, 2012) the holdings and their weightings were: ExxonMobil at 3.09 percent; Apple at 2.40 percent; Microsoft at 1.94 percent; Proctor and Gamble at 1.83 percent; Johnson and Johnson at 1.80 percent; IBM at 1.69 percent, etc. Obviously the total list in an S&P indexed portfolio is 500 stocks and the total weightings of the 500 stocks adds to 100 percent. An S&P indexed portfolio will have returns comparable to the actual S&P index return except for management and other relevant fees. As opposed to the aforementioned passively indexed portfolio, an actively managed portfolio might hold no ExxonMobil, no Apple, no Microsoft, etc.; or it might hold many of these stocks but in weighting different from the indexs weighted allocations; it might hold a select few stocks and not 250 or 500 stocks, etc. An actively managed portfolio will hold the managers unique selections and weightings, as the manager is expecting this unique combination to fare better than the index. All is not black and white: managers holdings are often characterized along a continuum, from one extreme (0 percent of the portfolio being actively managed) to the other extreme (100 percent being actively managed.) Active Share is a calculation of the cumulative difference between each securitys portfolio weight and that of its passive benchmark. By definition, an index fund has an Active Share of 0 percent because it owns every position in the index at the same weight as the index. A portfolio with an Active Share of 50 percent indicates that 50 percent of the holdings in the portfolio are either weighted differently than the benchmark or are not in the benchmark. Generally, portfolios with an Active Share of less than 60 percent are closet index products. (Source: Vaughan Nelson Investment Management, white paper, How passive is your active manager?) Vaughan Nelson references other studies that indicate that the average closet index portfolio has virtually no chance of outperforming its passive benchmark. And that might partially explain the trend in manager underperformance relative to their respective benchmark indices for the past 25 plus years. Vaughan Nelson reports in the same white paper that the change in mutual fund portfolio construction since 1985 has been a radical shift from active portfolio management to closet indexing. In 1985, 67 percent of assets in U.S. equity mutual funds had portfolios with 80 percent or greater Active Share; in 2009, a skimpy 19 percent of assets in U.S. equity mutual funds had portfolios with 80 percent or greater active share (Professor Antti Petajisto, NYU Stern School of Business, Active Share and Mutual Fund Performance Dec. 15, 2010). Clearly, managers are clothed as active, getting paid fees for active management and calling their approaches special but they did not take any meaningful bets away from the index. So chances are quite good that holdings of your individual mutual funds, and certainly the aggregation of your funds, will approach index allocations and index performance. Quite probably, not what you wanted or thought that you were getting. The two kinds of funds also handle fees differently. Indexed portfolios charge lower fees and actively managed portfolios charge higher fees. (Hedge funds are an example of the highest fee structure, often at 2 percent annual fee and 20 percent of the profit going to the manager. Certainly, hedge funds are not closet indexing.) So, if your aggregation of all your funds is comparable to holding an index but you are paying higher fees, then consider switching to a passive index fund and save money. If you hold a closet index that parades as an active manager, you might ask for fees to be adjusted downward to reflect the fee structure that applies to indexing; or rethink your active manager selection and find one whose active management is greater than 80 percent of the portfolio. Who is truly active? Vaughan Nelson has assets under management of greater than $8 billion (mostly institutional but a smattering of high net worth investors.) The maximum number of holdings in their select strategy cannot be greater than 40, but actual experience has not seen it above 25. Their gross and net-of-fee performance from inception (June 2009) through September 30, 2012, outperformed its indicated benchmark for its two portfolios by 280 and 160 basis points, respectively. A consistent proposition of this column has been that if you hire an active manager (and pay an active manager higher fees), these managers need to make concentrated selections in order for you to have the opportunity (but not an assurance) to outperform. Recall that in the early days of Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffett was noted to have approximately ten holdings. He researched, he investigated, he decided and he placed his bet. Consult with your adviser as to suitability of these ideas, seek counsel of several advisers for a range of opinion and retain experts in specialized areas if investing.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Dividend Yields, ExplainedA companys dividend yield expresses the relationship of two numbers: a stocks price and the amount of its annual dividend. Its a number investors need to understand. Consider Pfizer Inc. It was recently trading around $25 per share, paying out 22 cents per quarter ($0.88 per year) as a dividend. Take $0.88 and divide it by $25 and youll get 0.035. Multiply that by 100, and youve got a dividend yield of 3.5 percent. If you pay $25 for a share of Pfizer today, youll earn 3.5 percent per year on your investment, just from dividends alone. Dividends of healthy companies tend to increase over time, delivering additional value to shareholders. Companies rarely decrease or eliminate their dividends. Like many companies, though, Pfizer got whacked in the recent recession, and it halved its payout in 2009. Pfizer has been hiking it since then, though, and has, overall, doubled its dividend over the past 11 years. A dividend will hold steady for months or years at a time. But the yield usually fluctuates daily, since its tied to the stocks price. As a stock price rises, the yield falls, and vice versa. You can find some hefty yields among companies whose stock prices have tumbled but be careful. If you spot an unusually high dividend, make sure the company isnt in so much trouble that a dividend cut is around the corner. Companies such as Citigroup, Xerox, AT&T, General Motors and Kodak have cut their dividends when struggling. Theyve often been increased, later but some such companies, like Kodak, end up in deeper trouble. Lastly, understand that not all companies pay dividends. Younger or quickly growing companies prefer to flow their extra cash back into operations.

Banked On ItI disagree with those who discourage investments in initial public offerings (IPOs). I invested $5,000 in Capitol Federal Financials IPO in April 1999, and within a few years, I had received $1,000 in dividends and the stock had more than doubled. H.G., Overland Park, Kan.The Fool Responds: Not all IPOs are equal. The most risky for investors are those tied to unproven companies without established growth and profitability track records, and those that are the subject of much hype in the market. Hype can lead the company to hike its opening price, thereby decreasing ultimate returns. Founded in 1893, Capitol Federal was not a young, unproven, muchhyped company. Various studies have shown that in general, IPOs tend to be marketlagging investments in their first few years. Even with Capitol Federal, you could have bought in at about the same price a year later. Some IPOs do perform very well for investors. But many do not. They tend to serve insiders best, such as the investment banks that manage them and the favored big investors who are allowed to buy in at the opening price.

Just Consider ItIts hard to ignore the impact that Nike (NYSE: NKE) has had on the athletic apparel and footwear industry. Nike has spent decades building one of the top 25 brands in the world. Lately, that has helped the company expand into growing markets such as China, where it faces a major challenge: how to get viewers to start playing sports rather than just watching them. But the challenge Nike faces in the U.S. could be even larger. In the athletic apparel space, both lululemon athletica and Under Armour have hit different niches and have been performing well. With Under Armour now expanding into shoes, Nike will have to defend its turf once again. The stocks dividend yield, recently 1.5 percent, isnt massive, but the company has raised it by an annual average of more than 14 percent over the past five years. For retirees and other conservative investors, the biggest strike against Nike is its lofty valuation. With a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio above 20, its hard to justify paying up for the footwear giant, even with its record of secure income and stock price stability. Upon a price dip, though, consider pouncing and adding Nike to your retirement portfolio. (The Motley Fool owns shares of lululemon athletica, and its newsletters have recommended buying shares of it, Under Armour and Nike.) Based in New York, I was once kno wn as Bell Atlantic. I t ook the name y ou know today in 2000 when I merged with GTE. (My name is a mashup of where the earth and sky meet and the Latin word for truth.) I specialize in broadband, wireless and wired communication services, with my wireless network serving more than 94 million customers in the U.S. My history features many mergers and spinoffs. For example, I bought MCI and Alltel in recent years. I rake in more than $110 billion annually and employ more than 180,000 people. Who am I? (Answer: Verizon Communications) The Deets on REITsQWhat are REITs? R.B., Columbus, Ind.AReal estate investment trusts (REITs) are popular with many investors as they let you invest in real estate without actually buying any property. Like mutual funds in some ways, theyre professionally managed organizations that pool the capital of many people in order to acquire or finance properties like offices, hotels, apartments, shopping centers and medical centers.Their portfolios are diversified and generally produce income. Many REITs trade publicly on major stock exchanges. Corporations or trusts that qualify as REITs typically dont pay corporate income tax and are often exempt from state income tax as well. They must invest most of their assets in real estate and pay out at least 90 percent of their taxable income as dividends. In good years, REIT dividends can run quite high, sometimes topping 10 percent.

F.R., Brooklyn, N.Y.AFirst of all, understand that the crash of 1929 really occurred over several months, not just one day. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (the Dow) peaked in early September 1929, at 381. It then slid down to 199 in mid-November, before rising again to 294 five months later, in 1930. (In October of 1929, it slid more than 11 percentage points on two successive days.) From there it began a long descent, falling to 41 in July 1932. With the Dow recently around 13,600, its up some 332-fold since the low of 41. Thats enough to turn your $1 into $332. Not too shabby, eh? Thats an annual average growth rate of about 7.5 percent.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 Were strong in providing government advocacy, says Christine Ross, president and CEO of the Bonita Springs Area Chamber of Commerce, the areas only five-star chamber accredited through the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. If a business is having trouble getting through the zoning and permitting process, we step up and interface with the city or the county. When a member restaurateur wanted to offer outdoor seating at its stripmall location, Ms. Ross staff approached the city about streamlining its multiple public hearings requirement for special exceptions. City officials agreed and revised the process, whittling down an up to 180-day wait to just 45 to 60 days. Weve been working with the city to be more business friendly and provide answers more swiftly, Ms. Ross says. Even in this era of instant information, educational programs remain among the more attended chamber events. Not only do they delve into hot-button topics facing local business, classes and seminars provide an opportunity to connect faceto-face. A summer educational series focusing on business strategy, marketing and branding, social media and other subjects members had expressed interest in, proved so popular the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce will likely offer another in the spring, says Colleen DePasquale, executive director. The Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce has absorbed several programs offered by the now defunct Economic Development Council of Collier County, including the intensive 10-week FastTrac Growth Venture, a business development course geared to existing companies with less than $1 million in sales and fewer than 10 employees. FastTrac focuses on marketing and branding, policies and other issues unique to operating a local business. Most new jobs come from existing businesses, says Mike Reagen, president and CEO of the Naples chamber. In this digital world, businesses really need the physical contact between professor and peer. As a part-time certified business analyst with the Small Business Development Center, local business owner and entrepreneur Peter Keating counsels start-ups and existing businesses weekly through the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce. His services are free to members and non-members; the program is offered through the U.S. Small Business Administration and Florida Gulf Coast Universit ys Lutg ert College of Business. Other area chambers provide similar services. A jack-of-many-trades whos worked in advertising, education and public affairs and has business experience in 80 countries, Mr. Keating consults with mom-and-pops, large operations with six-figure growth and companies run by foreign owners governed by a different set of rules and regulations. He says a common mistake among his clientele, whether larger or small, is failure to analyze return on investment, especially in matters of marketing and advertising. They think they have to put an ad in the paper but dont monitor the results or determine if it develops into an opportunity for business, he says. In business, its important to evaluate everything you do. Mr. Keating also makes house calls to meet with busy executives, offers monthly seminars and hosts many of the chambers networking events.The need to networkConnecting with other businesses getting out from behind the desk or cash register remains the top service chambers of commerce offer. From breakfast and lunch opportunities to after-hours business card swaps and niche programs for young professionals, networking events are key to developing business. When My Shower Door owner Bill Daubmann realized he could cut costs by started his own glass fabricator, the Bonita Springs chamber served as his sounding board, permitting liaison and talent pool. Mr. Daubmann filled the advisory board of D3 Glass with fellow chamber members and tapped into legal, payroll, accounting and other services provided by business professionals he met through chamber events. I probably use six or seven different members who Ive met through networking, he says. We used contractors to get the building ready, a company to embroider our shirts and another to do the signs on our trucks. With My Shower Door locations in Naples, Fort Myers and Sarasota (and another opening next year in Tampa), D3s Italian glass furnace, which fired up for the first time in June with six employees, is staying busy, also providing tabletops, staircases, railings and other glass products to local companies. Were way ahead of projections, says Mr. Daubmann, who credits Ms. Ross for helping the company branch out. Christine has a tremendous amount of contacts. Both the Charlotte County and Naples chambers offer business-to-business trade shows. Charlotte County is a small town and people like to do business with people they know, says Julie Mathis, executive director of the Charlotte chamber, which will offer its second annual expo in February.Special interest groupsSeveral Southwest Florida chambers are also dedicated to preventing the socalled brain drain, offering programs to entice young professionals to stay in Southwest Florida. Bonitas Wake Up Young Professionals and other monthly events attract about 25 younger business people. Its really important to solidify the younger demographic in the workforce, Ms. Ross says. We want them to attach themselves to the community. We also provide scholarships to high school seniors and college students, because thats our eventual workforce. We want them to come back and contribute. Responding to a Community Foundation of Collier County study that showed young single professionals felt isolated in the community, the Naples chamber launched several programs designed to cater to their needs, and maybe even play as matchmaker. If youre single in Naples, its a hard place to break in, Mr. Reagen says. After that data was released five or six years ago, four bank presidents came to me and said, We have to do something for our young men and women. We want them to grow with our companies, date and mate. One of its offerings, the seven-session Growing Associates In Naples, focuses on career advancement and creating one-on-one mentoring relationships with company CEOs and presidents. Accelerated Luncheon meetings, akin to speed dating, encourage networking, and Just for Coffee creates chance opportunities for professional relationships (participants draw executive contact information from a hat). We have a whole series of CEOs and executives who are willing to share their contact information and have a cup of coffee with the person who draws their name, Mr. Reagen says about the Just for Coffee program. This has led to some avuncular mentoring relationships. As many as 80 young professionals attend the Accelerated Luncheon meetings, he adds. The business of business seems solid in Southwest Florida, and Mr. Reagen says he hopes for more collaboration among chambers, working to promote the region to prospective businesses.

Angelinas Ristorante is the signature vintner sponsor. With just a few vintages bottled, Husic Vineyards is already winning praise from wine enthusiasts. The 2006 Husic Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon was a Double Gold Medal winner in the 2010 American Fine Wine Competition, and the 2008 vintage secured a Gold Medal in 2012. Julie and Frank Husic, along with their sons FJ and Paris, are living a family dream through their business. After purchasing the land in 1995, the Husics spent two years working on permitting and planning the vineyards. The land had never been lived on or farmed, and that meant that prior to planting in 1997, the land had to be cleared, dynamited and terraced. Today, the vineyards cling to the edge of a mountain overlooking Napa Valleys Stags Leap District. The three Husic vineyards have a total of nine acres of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

He knocked on my door nearly every day, hefting packages of sweaters and trousers and lingerie, items I purchased from the online consumer universe. Gone were the days of digging through discount bins, of sifting merchandise for exactly the right shape and color and size. On the Internet, I could find any item I dreamed up. A short-sleeve boatneck jersey dress in cranberry red? Bloomingdales.com. This seasons riding jacket in hunter green? Jcrew.com. Rain boots, leather gloves, a tartan scarf? I Googled them all. Ordered them all. And sent them all back. Heres what I discovered about online shopping: For all its convenience, for all its ability to order precisely what we want, it never quite delivers. Or doesnt deliver in the way wed hoped. The online world is in essence a fabricated universe. A set piece where the lighting always is perfect, the models are all skinny and the items were searching for are at our fingertips. Do you see where Im going with this? Several years ago I met a man in real life. Our paths crossed briefly, with just enough time to establish a mutual attraction but not enough time to get to know each other. We parted ways soon after meeting, but we kept in touch through e-mail. Long, torrid emails. Before too long, I got to thinking we were soul mates. And why not? On the Internet, we only have to show our best selves. We can tweak the lighting; we manage our own props. Recently I decided to go through my closet and get rid of the clothes I dont wear any more. In all that sorting and discarding, I had a revelation. The clothes I loved, the ones I wanted to keep and wear until they fell apart, were never the items I purchased online, the ones I had searched for and fantasized about. Instead, the pieces I loved were the ones I found in person. They had taken time and effort to track down, and they were almost never what I had been searching for in the first place. Over time my online love affair fizzled. The man suggested we talk on the phone, and what we had managed to hide in our e-mails became clear in our conversations we were not soul mates. Not even close. Soon the man suggested we meet again in person. I agreed. And then declined. And agreed again. When I declined a final and definite time, my online beau exploded in angry written messages. He sent long and scathing messages condemning my sad rocket ship of a life which admittedly my ideal life partner would never have said. It turns out the people I have loved the most like the clothes hanging in my closet are the ones I have come to know in the real world. They are the people who never fit my ideal description but somehow still manage to fit just right. In our too-convenient world where even dating has moved online. its easy to forget that half the fun of falling in love is combing the proverbial racks. In person. Bad lighting and all. i f w m c artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

The show consists of more than two dozen acrylic paintings and digital paintings enhanced, colorized and manipulated with computer applications. The artist says his works are inspired by Norman Rockwells narrative style. I like people and their situations, he says. If its kids or a gnarly old man on the side of the road selling windshield repairs, the expressions, looks and nuances all add up to real Americana. Mr. Fuller began his painting career in art school at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. These days he paints in his Naples studio and a second studio in Alaska. In either place, theres always a story to be found. My job is to bring it to life, he says. His Rockwellian influence is evident in A Womans Work is Never Done, which features a ranch pitchfork in progress and a bandana-wearing hound with a steely gaze. Switching his canvas to a mudflat in our part of the world, Regal Rosie is a gentle moment in time with a roseate spoonbill a wading bird once decimated by professional plume hunters in threequarters view looking down its distinctive spatulate bill. Whether its original or digital art, Mr. Fuller says he is always chasing just the right recipe and balance with his paintings. My passion is art, period, he says. The Friends of the Library West Wing Art Gallery is in the west wing of the Naples Regional Library at 650 Central Ave. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. MondayThursday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday-Saturday.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 Festival in the mid-70s. Or James McMullens posters for New Yorks Lincoln Center Theater. For Florida Repertory Theatres 15th anniversary season this year, Tony Seaman knew he had to come up with something special. The creative director at Noise Inc., an advertising and branding agency based in Sanibel and Milwaukee, Mr. Seaman has designed Florida Reps posters for the past five seasons. The thing he wants his theater posters to do is intrigue people, Mr. Seaman says. I like to think people are curious and if you give them a little bit of intrigue, they might want to discover a little bit more. Thats what I try to do. I dont want to give the story away or say everything in one poster, but just intrigue someone to see what its all about. Two years ago, for the venues 13th season, he created posters jam-packed with type, similar to circus or carnival posters. For last season, he went with a simple, clean look. Overall, we just tried to strip down and have a little bit of a bare-bones approach, use a lot of silhouette shapes and simple colors, Mr. Seaman says. The seasons opening show usually helps determine the theme of Florida Reps posters, says Emily Kettner, digital strategies director at Noise. Last year, Rumors was the opening play and it had more of a simplistic, contemporary feel, she adds. This years opening show, Lend Me a Tenor, is set in 1934 in an art deco hotel suite, so Mr. Seaman and Florida Rep decided to go with an art deco feel for the 2012-13 posters.A group effortLike theater, good graphic design is a collaborative venture. Every summer, Florida Rep producing artistic director Robert Caccioppo and associate director Jason Parrish meet with Noise CEO John Specher and Mr. Seaman and Ms. Kettner to discuss the upcoming lineup of plays. This year, Florida Rep showed the Noise team an image of A.M. Cassandres iconic 1930s Normandie poster, which presents the hull of a steamship in such close-up that it looks as if its two seconds from mowing you over. The colors on the poster fade from dark to light, as if spray-painted. This was the type of look they wanted for the theaters 15th anniversary season, they told Mr. Seaman. He then set about making thumbnail sketches. We do a lot of research, he says. We pull out specific elements or themes within the play that we can use in the artwork. Theres a lot of backand-forth. I do pencil sketches, and start with that. There may be times were taking a chance or risk with the layout with some artwork, and if its something theyre not comfortable with or feel differently about, we can go back to the drawing board without a lot of time at the onset. Sometimes the clients love a concept at first sight; sometimes its two or three rounds before they agree, he says. This year they went back and forth quite a bit for Educating Rita, the closing play of the season in the Arcade Theatre. Tony provided a sketch, and they liked many of the elements that were in the sketch, Ms. Kettner says. But it wasnt the attitude or the tone they were looking for. We went back and provided a new sketch, but the tone still wasnt quite there. After three or four rounds, Mr. Seaman says, We stumbled on a solution that nailed it. If anything, that was an example of the collaboration where Florida Rep wasnt willing to settle and we were willing to keep at it until they loved it. But sometimes, Mr. Seaman says, they love an image at first sight. The poster for Talleys Folly, which opens Nov. 27, was one. I have to rave about it, says Ms. Kettner. Tony did a great job with the entire theme and look of the play. Its a romance about the courtship of Talley and her older suitor, and in the artwork, Tony was able to combine the two characters. The play unfolds in the boat house, so he was able to combine the two characters in love, and the water. The two faces in profile form a heart. You can also see the tip of a rowboat and a full moon over water. Sometimes (the ideas) do come easily, and as much as you never want to take the first solution, sometimes you find yourself coming back, after the research, to what intuitively made sense. Sometimes theres the proverbial waste can full of attempts, Mr. Seaman says ruefully. He approached Talleys Folly a number of different ways before finally ending up with what was presented to Florida Rep. Its more or less working through a lot of different decisions before something clicks and it all kind of makes sense, he says. The other poster Florida Rep loved immediately was for Other Desert Cities, which opens March 12. The Tony Award-winning play is about a woman who comes home to her wealthy family for the holidays and drops a bombshell: Shes written a memoir about them. The poster shows the back of a young woman in a white bathing suit, standing on the edge of a diving board, book in hand. Shes looking at a large house in the desert, bordered by palm trees. Right away, as soon as we provided the sketch, they said, Yes, I cant wait to see the final artwork for this one, Ms. Kettner says. Pretty much, when we provided it, they said it was perfect. That play presented more of a challenge to Mr. Seaman, because he had to apply an art deco feel to a contemporary play. But we found a way to get (the idea) across and still maintain the consistency in the artwork, he says. With every theater season, there are numerous challenges in creating the posters. Though the plays are disparate, the posters have to have a unified feel, as if they all belong in the same family. I think the hardest part or, once we solve it, the most rewarding part is to say or show something that hasnt been said before, Mr. Seaman says. Because most of the plays have been done by other companies across the country, it would be easy to find artwork thats already been done, too, he says. To try to say it in a new way is the biggest challenge, to pull out that one thing about that play that you cant say about any other play, but put it across in a way that no ones done before.A class actMr. Seaman also designed Florida Reps 15th anniversary logo. Its set in an art deco-shaped pentagon and appears on all of the seasons posters. (Eagle-eyed theatergoers will also notice the same shape on the current set of Lend Me a Tenor: two similarly shaped mirrors stage right and stage left.) Noise Inc. has won numerous ADDY awards from the Advertising Federation of Southwest Florida for its work for Florida Rep more than 40 in the past four years, including Silver, Gold, Judges Choice and Best of Show, which is the ultimate prize. Their work has won Best of Show and the Judges Choice awards two years in a row. Its such an honor to have such a quality theater company in Southwest Florida to work with, Ms. Kettner says. Im not being clich when I say it brings out some of the best work in Noise. Theyre the client that wins us the most awards. They bring out the best in us. They spur me on to push myself, Mr. Seaman echoes. Its just a couple of different creative forces that all mesh together. And then theres the letter Florida Rep received recently from playwright Tom Dudzick, who wrote this seasons Miracle on South Division Street (Feb. 5-March 2). He wrote: I came across Miracle artwork online today. I love it. Winking Mary and a barber pole for the I. Oh man, its great. Really classy. Congratulations to your artistic staff.

Even the very language they use reflects how they see it all as a game. But two characters in Les Liasions Dangereuses, set in Paris in 1788, take that mindset to new depths. Written by Christopher Hampton and adapted from Pierre Choderlos de Laclos 1782 epistolary novel, Les Liasions Dangereuses won the Olivier Award for Best New Play in 1986 and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Foreign Play the following year. (It was also nominated for a Tony Award for Best New Play.) It was adapted into the 1988 film Dangerous Liaisons starring Glenn Close, John Malkovich and Michelle Pfeiffer, and the 1989 film Valmont, starring Colin Firth, Annette Bening and Meg Tilly. La Marquise de Merteuil (Kathleen Gravatt in The Naples Players production) and Le Vicomte de Valmont (Mark Vanagas) are former lovers. Their relationship is murkier now, however. Theyre friends, but also rivals. They spur each other on in destroying others lives, placing bets with each other as to whether one can seduce a chosen third party. Marteuils former lover, who dumped her, is engaged to Cecile (Sarah Dickerson), a young girl who until recently has been studying at a convent. His priority is a guaranteed virtue in a bride. So, of course, Marteuil bets Valmont that he cant bed the bride-to-be and ruin her honor before the wedding. Cecile, meanwhile, has fallen for her music teacher, Le Chevalier Danceny (an earnest Joseph F. Lang). The two are writing love letters to each other. Under the guise of helping Cecile communicate with her music teacher, Valmont weasels his way into her bed. But he has his sights set on seducing La Presidente de Tourvel (Laura Needle). She is a highly virturous woman, which would make bedding her all the more of a conquest. But he sets the bar even higher: Not only does he want to sleep with her, but he wants to make her desire him, despite her morals and despite his reputation as a cad. Unless youre fluent in French, the names of the characters alone can be a little off-putting and confusing, but the plot is easy to follow, as characters play an increasingly complex game of musical beds. The women seated near me were following the play as if watching a soap opera. One began calling Mr. Vanagas a rogue during Act I. During Act II, her view of him grew dimmer, and she began calling him brute. Mr. Vanagas is, indeed, superlative in this role, delightfully devious as he seduces and manipulates his way through various bedrooms. He is as charming as he is malicious, playing the role with relish. Ms. Gravatt is every part his equal: cruel, calculating, deceitful. She gives a speech about how she has to do what she does in order to survive as a woman in society: (Men) can ruin our reputation and our life with a few well-chosen words. So of course, I had to invent not only myself, but ways of escape that no one has ever thought of before. And Ive succeeded, because Ive always known how to dominate your sex and avenge my own. I became a virtuoso of deceit. Both are equally skilled in presenting themselves as something theyre not. And its Ms. Gravatts character who, like a chess master, is plotting many moves ahead. To them, its just a game, manipulating people as pawns for their own wicked enjoyment. The two take perverse pleasure in ruining others lives. They do it for revenge, and for the sheer enjoyment of being able to do so. Ms. Dickerson is perfect as the innocent, nave girl who cant deny her curiosity; likewise, Ms. Needle is excellent as a more mature woman trying to fight against desiring what she knows is wrong for her. It is these inner emotional struggles that this cast is so good at expressing: wanting what they know they shouldnt want, pretending to be someone they arent, feigning love and sincerity. Carole Fenstermacher plays Valmonts aunt, and while she doesnt have a lot of stage time, she has a pivotal moment where she displays great wisdom. And on the opposite end of spectrum, Victoria Diebler is saucy in her role as a courtesan. Director Paul Graffy faced several challenges in producing this play. The first is that it contains many scenes at varying locales how to portray them? He cleverly solved the problem by having set designer Matt Flynn create a minimalist set furnished with just a handful of props. One white futon works as both a bed and a couch. A trio of servants quickly changes the furniture between scenes. Its effective, and the whiteness of the items (futon, table, chair) makes the colorful characters stand out even more. (Merteuil is clothed in a sinfully scarlet gown, thanks to costume designer Dot Auchmoody, who obviously had fun clothing this production.) Another challenge the play presents is its call for occasional nudity. If two people are lazing around in bed after just having sex, you cant exactly have them fully dressed, especially if one of them is a courtesan. The nudity is well-staged and discrete. Though the show is presented in the Tobye Studio, for this production the chairs dont wrap three-quarters of the way around the stage but are in the traditional proscenium configuration. One challenge Mr. Graffy has not overcome yet is the studios loud air conditioning, which, every time it turned on, made it a challenge to hear the un-miked actors clearly. (Many of them are also fighting colds and possibly unable to raise their voices and project more. A recent performance was even cancelled, due to illness in the cast.) Its a shame, because this is a dialogue-heavy play, and many of the lines are quite witty and full of clever sexual innuendo. The pacing also seemed off at times; I dont know if this is due to Mr. Graffys directing, illnesses among the cast or the choppiness of the script, with its numerous scenes and locations. Some scenes just seem to end quickly, before theyve had a chance to build. The staging is quite fresh the cast comes out en masse, and the maid and servants take clothing off of three mannequins to dress the main characters, who stand there, haughty, aristocratic and entitled. Les Liaisons Dangereuses is definitely adult material, both in content and presentation. Its challenging fare for a community theater, and The Naples Players do it well, delivering a juicy, decadent production. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Les Liasions Dangereuses by The Naples Players>>When: Through Nov. 17 >>Where: The Tobye Studio at the Sugden Community Theatre >>Tickets: $25 >>Info: 263-7990 or www.naplesplayers.org Kathleen Gravatt, top, with Mark Vanagas and Laura Needle in a scene from Les Liaisons Dangereuses.

YesIn Flight, a pilot rescues 96 people from certain death as he guides an airplane to the ground after it malfunctions. Hes a hero, right? What if he was drunk, had smoked marijuana and taken cocaine when the crash occurred? The great thing about Flight is that its never about how well the pilot, Whip Whitaker (Denzel Washington), flew the plane. Rather, it focuses on the aftermath and how an alcoholic deals with the fame and scrutiny of his heroism. On one hand, he finds love in fellow addict Nicole (Kelly Reilly) a lost soul. On the other hand. he cant let himself be happy. This is a sad, powerful and extremely well made tale of a great deed undone by a horrible disease. Sadly, six people died in the crash. Someone has to pay, criminal negligence attorney Hugh Lang tells Whip and his friend/airline union rep Charlie Anderson (Bruce Greenwood). The airline wants to blame Whip, and Whip correctly insists the plane fell apart on him. Although a legal battle ensues, this is never a courtroom drama. Instead, writer John Gatins (Real Steel) and director Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump) focus on the selfdefeating and self-loathing actions of a man who should be embracing the adulation of those around him. Stop drinking! Say no! Get away from the bottle, we think, frustrated that Whip cant stop when he knows he has to in order to ensure his freedom. If it were this easy, though, there would be no alcoholics. What viewers need to remember and accept in order for this film to work is that Whip, regardless of what he says, cannot control himself. Alcoholism is a disease that takes over ones life and does not relent until you force it to do so. This is why the real strength of the movie is Whips battle with addiction and how it ruins his life, and how exceptionally well it is portrayed by Mr. Washington, who hasnt been this good in years. Watch closely for the sad desperation in Whips eyes as he knows he needs to stop but cant, leaving us to pity him. One of the best scenes comes when Whip needs a pick-me-up, so his old friend Harling Mays (John Goodman, stealing scenes with great comic relief) comes in to get him high so he can be right. It plays for laughs, but its actually depressing. Youll likely get frustrated with Whip on numerous occasions, and rightfully so. Youre never expected to like Whip, or even respect him. He will, however, prompt you to think about your morality. For example, there are moments in which he asks surviving crewmembers to lie for him to the authorities. The crewmembers are under oath to tell the truth, but do they owe it to Whip because he saved their lives? Each viewer will respond in his or her own way, and there is no clear answer. What is clear, however, is that Flight, with its themes, performances and direction, is one of the best movies of the year.

AT OUR PELICAN BAY OFFICE NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC12 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 Macht on Mack: A detailed account of SWFLs rich baseball history BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentLong before Florida had a senator named Connie Mack and Southwest Florida was represented in Congress by another Connie Mack, the most famous Connie Mack of them all was a national sports figure. Thats the man Norman L. Macht portrays in Connie Mack, The Turbulent & Triumphant Years, 1915-1931, the second and most recent volume of Mr. Machts planned three-part biography of baseballs Connie Mack. This installment of Mr. Machts enormous study of Mr. Mack, the manager of the Philadelphia As from 1901 through 1950, may be of keenest interest to Southwest Florida readers. It was Mr. Mack, the great-grandfather of the current Senatorial candidate, who brought the first Major League Baseball team to Southwest Florida Fort Myers for spring training, way back in 1925. It was the original Mr. Mack who nearly 90 years ago began his familys connection to Southwest Florida, one that has led the family to produce a senator and congressman and become the foremost political family in Southwest Florida history. The focus of this 648-page book, though, isnt Florida or politics. Its Mr. Mack and baseball. Its also clear from reading the volume that the author likes Mr. Mack: He respects, admires and even reveres the baseball man. The research Mr. Macht invested in his books is clearly daunting. Mr. Machts second Connie Mack book is so chock full of colorful anecdotes and characters, the extraordinary hard work and research of the author is apparent and it pays off for the reader. His research helps bring to life times and places: Philadelphia, Fort Myers or Eagle Pass, Texas. Less than halfway through the book, Mr. Macht writes, When it came to spring training sites, Connie Mack was the wandering Irishman. He couldnt seem to find the perfect place. That is until he found Fort Myers, which wasnt perfect but it was better than previous stops, such as Montgomery, Ala. Not to mention Eagle Pass, the Texas border town a three-day, 2,014-mile train ride from Philadelphia. The As trained there in 1922. It wasnt Fort Myers. It was a lot colder. The clubhouse stove froze and cracked, Mr. Macht writes. When it warmed up, he writes, a sandstorm forced players to wear goggles. Eagle Pass didnt work. Then, Mr. Mack tried Montgomery, which he liked, but it was too far from teams in Florida. Then Mr. Mack heard about Fort Myers. In 1923, according to the author, the towns population was about 1,200. But Karl H. nd r C f c ha au f o ti m Fo r L bo o BOOK REVIEW

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 C13 Grismer, in The Story of Fort Myers, wrote that the 1920 U.S. census pegged the population at 3,678, and estimates had it at 15,000 or more by the mid-1920s. A quibble or two about numbers doesnt take away from Mr. Machts detail-rich work re-creating what Fort Myers was like in the 1920s. Those who came considered it Fort Wilderness, Mr. Macht writes. The Fort Myers-Mack connection began in 1923 when Richard Q. Richards, an important figure in Fort Myers history and then the owner of the Royal Palm Pharmacy in downtown, visited Mr. Mack in Philadelphia. It was the start. The As were locked in for another year in Montgomery. On Jan. 21, 1924, Mr. Mack paid a surprise visit to Mr. Richards at the pharmacy. He told the Fort Myers Press that Fort Myers is the prettiest city in all of Florida. Mr. Mack added he had been coming to the state since 1888, so I should know. Then, on Feb. 22, 1925, Mr. Mack and his team arrived in their new home. A brass band and hundreds of people greeted the team at the train station. Real estate charlatans prowled streets peddling lots. A Philadelphia newspaperman wrote, according to Mr. Macht, The houses are stucco, and so are the purchasers. Mr. Mack liked the town and bought two lots. His 1932 tax bill for the lots was $3.04. Baseball was a bit more informal then. Mr. Macht writes that the New York Yankees let the As borrow slugger Babe Ruth for a day in 1925 to play a game in Terry Park against a minor league team. Every business in town closed for the day so folks could see the Babe. About 5,000 people, roughly 80 percent of Lee Countys population, attended the game. Alas, the most fabled slugger of all time did not hit a ball out of the infield. The As liked their new home and returned every spring for the remainder of the years covered in this book through 1931. Local fans were fortunate. The 1929-31 As were one of the greatest teams ever, one that won three successive American League pennants and two World Series. In 1926, Mr. Macht writes, New stores and theaters were going up downtown. Brand-new bungalows lined the avenues leading to the golf course and fair grounds. Spring training in the 1920s was vastly different from the big business it has become. The Lee County Fair was going on at Terry Park while the As trained for the season. An elephant would wander through the outfield during batting practice with players running around it. The most famous Fort Myers resident ever, Thomas Edison, would stop by the ballpark to see the As and invited them to his home. During one visit, Mr. Edison told Mr. Mack he had been coming to Fort Myers for 47 years, since the days when the town, the inventor said, was a hamlet of about 40 houses, 37 buildings being saloons. Mr. Macht evokes more of the old-time Fort Myers with other anecdotes and quotes, enough to fill an issue or two of Florida Weekly and too much to mention here. Though sometimes heavy with detail, the second installment of Mr. Machts work is a testament to research and hard work. He tells sprightly stories about luminaries from baseball and other fields. For any fan of baseball or history or ideally both, its worth devoting a few hours to Connie Mack, The Turbulent & Triumphant Years, 1915-1931.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC18 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 The first U.S. Surgeon General warning on tobacco products was required in 1964. Tobacco was labeled as bad for your health. Americans were soon using fewer tobacco products, like cigarettes, pipe tobacco, snuff, chewing tobacco and cigars. In the late Victorian era, use of snuff lost favor, and tobacco was used mainly for pipes. Tobacco is a dried leaf, and it crumbles easily, so its kept in a container that could used as a humidor. By the mid 19th century, many pottery jars were being made in Germany in amusing shapes. Few were made in the United States. Animals, human heads, historic figures and obvious shapes like barrels were popular. By the 1930s, most potteries were making more-formal and less-colorful jars. Collectors search for ornamental examples, especially those made of majolica or another colorful ceramic or by well-known factories. Tobacco jars range from 6 to 13 inches tall. They sometimes are confused with cookie jars. But a jar-humidor has a section with a hole inside the lid that held a moist sponge. And a tobacco jar lid opens at half the height of the jar. A cookie jar has a lid that opens near the top. Tobacco jars, especially the full figures of a person or animal, sell for $500 to more than $1,000. Beware. There are many fakes.Q: We recently bought a French provincial-style sideboard from a friend of ours and would like to learn something about the maker. There is a plastic label inside one of the drawers that reads Made by John-Widdicomb Co., Designed by Ralph H. Widdicomb, Grand Rapids.A: There were two furniture companies in Grand Rapids, Mich., with the name Widdicomb. George Widdicomb emigrated from England in 1858 and opened a cabinet shop. His four sons joined the business, which became Widdicomb Furniture Co., in 1873. Georges son John left the company in 1893 and established a business making fireplace mantels and woodwork. Johns company became John Widdicomb Co. in 1897. John Widdicomb Co. gradually acquired several other furniture companies. In 1970, it bought the name Widdicomb Furniture Co., which had been inactive for several years. Johns nephew, Ralph H. Widdicombe (who used the original spelling of the familys last name), was the chief designer for the John Widdicomb Co. until 1951. His French provincial designs were introduced in 1924. L. & J.G. Stickley of Manlius, N.Y., bought the brand name and assets of John Widdicomb Co. in 2002. Stickley now manufactures a line of very expensive John Widdicomb furniture.

He is dressed to go hunting. The terra-cotta jar is marked by Jon (Johan) Maresh, who used the mark JP on jars made in Germany after 1841. The factory where he worked may have used the mark later, too. It closed in about 1945. The jar sold for $690 at Fox Auctions of Vallejo, Calif. Q: My old Wheaties box is intact and has eight sports cards printed on it, including football players Otto Graham and Johnny Lujack and baseball star Stan Musial. Can you tell me when the box was originally sold and what its worth? And where should I try to sell it? A: Your old cereal box was on store shelves in 195 2. Boxes were sold that year with a total of 60 different trading cards of 30 athletes. The athletes were shown in both portrait and action poses, and the images are in Wheaties colors blue and white on an orange background. You were smart never to cut the cards. An uncut box is more valuable than the eight cut cards printed on the box. Depending on the identity of the other athletes pictured on your box, the box could sell for more than $100, perhaps a lot more. Your box is a crossover collectible, but it would be worth more to a sports collector than to an advertising or cereal-box collector. You probably would get the best price by selling it at an auction that specializes in sports memorabilia. Q: In 1996 I paid $12 for a 5-inch Donald Duck figural mug at an antiques mall. The mug is in the shape of Donalds head. The base is blue, the same color as the rim around the top of the mug. Its marked with a copyright symbol and the words Walt Disney Prods., Japan. Id like to know the mugs age and value. A: Walt Disney ceramic dishes were made in Japan before and after World War II, but your mug dates from after the war. The mark dates it anywhere from the 1950s to the early 1980s. It would sell today for roughly what you paid for it 16 years ago.

The vastly remodeled Vincenzos on the Bay has a Caribbean atmosphere and menu to match. Chef Jon Venuto gives calamari a fresh taste by pairing it with a light and refreshing lemon-garlicbanana pepper sauce. Hot voodoo wings were perfectly cooked and crisp with a tongue-tingling sauce. Either dish would be enough to share. Both the (grilled) scallop basket with fries, cole slaw and citrus remoulade, and the mambo mahi tacos with cilantro salsa and Key lime aioli were terrific. The meal ended with a fittingly tropical dessert of coconut sorbet with strawberry-mango salsa, served in a coconut shell. Service was friendly and attentive throughout the meal. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2011 Omei Chinese Cuisine, 14700 Tamiami Trail; 254-8973 Lovers of authentic Chinese food finally have a place in which to celebrate a widely misunderstood cuisine. Mark and Mary Cheng bring an elegant new standard to the region with their exceptional food and service. Youll find no egg foo yung or crab Rangoon on this menu, just imaginative, artfully plated real Chinese food. Never mind the name: Order the salted pepper calamari, which consists of tender tubes of squid fried to perfection and topped with toasted garlic and onion. The Peking duck is always available and well worth ordering. Chilean sea bass with two sauces hearty black bean and delicate garlic was terrific, as were the mango prawns, with sweet mangoes and hot red peppers topped with pine nuts. Service was as polished as the cuisine. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere Reviewed May 2010 Pagellis Italiano, Coconut Point, 8017 Plaza Del Lago, Estero; 226-4242 Italian classics are served with a twist in a sprawling setting that evokes an outdoor plaza with textured plaster and lots of metal work. Inspired by the Pagelli familys Sicilian roots, the menu covers a lot of territory, including hearth-baked pizza, grilled meats and seafood as well as the usual Italian pastas and baked dishes. A warning about the small plates: The crunchy prosciutto-arugula flatbread and rustic sausage-roasted potato plate we had were ample enough to serve as entrees (and both were delicious). Entrees were equally well conceived and executed. The veal and sea scallop rosemary with capellini was a most unexpected pairing; meat and seafood were cooked perfectly, and the rosemary added depth to the tomato sauce. A steak and shrimp combo was also well done, though the peppercorn sauce paired with the beef didnt bring much to the plate. The Pagelli family has a strong concept going with this restaurant and another in Tampa. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2011 Seasons 52, 8930 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 594-8852 This small chain, new to Southwest Florida, has a lot going for it. Start with the regularly changing menu that features seasonal ingredients at their peak of flavor in dishes that forswear indulgence without sacrificing flavor (nothing contains more than 475 calories). Consider the globe-spanning wine list, which includes more than 100 selections (52 or more by the glass). And the casual but plush atmosphere feels organic, with earthy colors, polished woods and stacked stone. Start with one of the flatbreads, cracker-thin pizzas carpeted with precisely arranged toppings and baked in a super-hot brick oven. The menu achieves a good balance of seafood and meats. An artichoke-stuffed shrimp dish was succulent and redolent of sage, while wood-grilled T-bone lamb chops were perfectly cooked and remarkably tender. Save room for dessert without guilt: Seasons 52s Mini Indulgences are tiny treats red velvet cake, pumpkin mousse and much more served in shot glasses. Theyre the perfect way to end a meal without going over the edge. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2011 Texas Tonys BBQ Shack, 4519 Tamiami Trail E., Naples; 732-8392 A side venture of the Phelan family, owners of the locally grown Pinchers Crab Shacks, Texas Tonys is plastered with Lone Star State flags, horseshoes and longhorn antlers. The decor has a studied rusticity, with its faux-distressed shades of deep red, antique white and denim blue and its rusty metal buckets hanging upside down from the ceiling as pendant lamps. Aside from a few fixable flaws, Texas Tonys could serve as a successful new chain concept. The loaded chopped pork nachos did not showcase the meat as well as it should have, and the boom boom shrimp lost their batter in a sea of spicy cream sauce. But the spice-rubbed baby back ribs had a good, charry bark along the edges, while the meat remained incredibly tender and had the all-important pink smoke ring. A quarter chicken was super-moist, and the meat slipped easily off the bone. Its darkly varnished skin was visible evidence of the restaurants smoker, which uses orangewood a subtle alternative to the stronger hickory or oak. The star of the meal was the Texan, a huge sandwich of super-tender brisket, cole slaw, pickles, onions and barbecue sauce served on Texas toast. Full bar.

LAngolo 5th Ave recently replaced Rossopomodoro, though ownership remains the same and the food is still Italian. Bha! Bha! Persian Bistro is scheduled to open the doors to its new, eagerly anticipated downtown location this week, and the finishing touches are being done on Osteria Tulia for an early December opening. With well-established landmarks like Chops City Grill, Caf Lurcat, Yabba Island Grill as popular as ever, other restaurants on the tony thoroughfare have to step up their game to keep their slice of the pie. Citrus, which opened in November 2010, has the potential to run with the big dogs. The seafood-centric menu celebrates the bounty of the Gulf and the Atlantic with selections from locally harvested stone crab and hogfish to New England-style clam bakes. The dining room is appealing, with its beautifully stylized fruit trees rendered in delicate strokes on the walls. And yet there is an air of apathy about the place. If youre curious for information, you wont find its menu online or even a website, period. Although our entrees delivered what they promised, the appetizers were disappointingly middle of the road. Furthermore, the servers were dressed in shorts or jeans with shirts untucked, which creates a slovenly first impression on a starchy street where even linen shirts wouldnt dream of wrinkling. When there are so many more-polished alternatives down the block, this inconsistency doesnt wash. We sat outside to enjoy the mild evening with other patrons sitting at linen-covered tables. It was early, and the dining room was empty so we didnt want to have it all to ourselves. Things started out promisingly enough. The craft beer menu lists 40 choices and the wine list about 50. A chilly glass of Kunde Sauvignon Blanc from Sonoma ($12) offered notes of peaches and tropical fruit with understated acidity. A pound of large stone crab claws would be a good start if you dont mind paying $34 a pound. From ceviche to sauted clams, youll find nothing but the treasures of the sea for starters. We settled on the Maine lobster purses ($14) and the Florida fish cakes ($12). Two large dumplings stuffed with lobster and vegetables, the former didnt do much to showcase Maines finest. Theres a wow factor when lobster is used well in a dish, but the bits of meat here were small and inconsequential on the palate more meh than wow. The soy-ginger sauce, overly sweet and oddly textured, did not help. When asked, the server told us the fish cakes were made with cobia the day before. (He had already told us that the fresh cobia entre we were interested in wasnt available, so I guess thats why he let this slip.) The five little patties were golden brown, served on a blanket of smoky chipotle aioli and topped with pico de gallo. The fish cakes tasted, well, fishy; the garnishes were really an asset in helping cover that up. We also didnt care for the texture of the fish, which was pureed to the consistency of pulp. For those who care, and many do, salad was not included with the meal and neither was any kind of bread. Soon after our first course was cleared, the entrees came out. When researching Citrus, I happened upon online photographs of its fried whole hogfish (aka hognose snapper). Its served upright on the plate for dramatic effect. Knowing that I couldnt eat a whole fish and realizing that sharing it would compromise our mission to sample a range of dishes, we passed on it. Instead we ordered a lane snapper ($28), which is still a very fine fish. And it was very well prepared pan-seared to a nice golden color without sacrificing the juices in the pearly white flesh. The crowning touch: a shelled crab claw. The fish sat in a pool of beurre blanc that had a hint of vanilla and was drizzled with syrupy balsamic reduction. On the side were tempura-fried asparagus spears that left us wanting more and a mound of fine mashed potatoes. We were beginning to think it might be best to skip appetizers at Citrus and go straight to the entrees. The excellent roast duck ($28) did nothing to dispel that notion. We thought we should try something other than seafood, and the only other option was a Wagyu filet mignon. Theres not a chicken breast in sight at Citrus. Come to think of it, theres not a lot of citrus fruit either. The duck skin was sooooooooo crisp that it shattered and melted in the mouth the apex of good duck skin. Each part of the half bird was perfectly done supremely moist and tender. An unremarkable orange reduction was pooled on the plate, but it didnt add much to the duck which didnt need enhancing anyway. Steamed asparagus and mashed potatoes filled out the plate nicely. For dessert, we highly recommend the fig ice cream ($8) with its crunchy seeds and chunks of dried fruit. Yum! Citrus is doing enough things right to merit a visit. But on a street where the quality bar is elevated, its not reaching as high as it should.

Dr. Galliano is teaming with Daniel Goldman, PH.D., of Peace River Psychology Center as well as Drs. Ball and Valente of the Southwest Florida Pain Center, to provide comprehensive and cost-effective medical diagnostics and treatments for patients with chronic abdominal pain. Dr. Galliano will provide for appropriate medical tests and treatments including epidural blocks and neuromodulation to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic abdominal pain (CAP). Daniel Goldman, PH.D. a licensed Psychologist working with stress related disorders, Dr. Ball is Board Certied by the American Board of Anesthesiology in Pain Medicine and Fellowship trained in Interventional Pain Management. Dr. Valente is Board Certied by the American Academy of Pain. About CAP or Chronic Abdominal Pain Dr. Galliano states, that an estimated 1.9 percent or 5.8 million Americans have CAP. However, is that physicians nd it difcult to identify the source of CAP in many patients. Dr. Galliano continues, There are many causes Chronic Abdominal Pain, it is important that treatment begins with a proper testing and diagnosis. CAP, which is dened as chronic abdominal pain for more than six months. CAP has always been a major health issue for many men and women, says Dr. Galliano. Addressing patient frustrations and concerns is rst and foremost a priority in isolating possible etiologies of CAP. Dr. Galliano continues, CAP seems to be more common in women than in men, CAP is often triggered by a rare or uncommon gastrointestinal issues, visceral nerve disorders or psychological issues that may not be detected by standard diagnostic tests such as a CAT scan, or endoscopic procedures to examine the stomach and small or large intestines. The problem is when physicians nd nothing, they may prescribe medications for pain, but the patients dont get better because the source of the pain has not been addressed states Dr. Galliano. The patient may have an uncommon condition or disease that can only be detected by specialized tests. At Chronic Abdominal Pain Clinic of Florida, which opened in March of 2012, CAP patients undergo a thorough evaluation that includes standard and appropriate specialized medical tests to nd the source or mechanism of a patients chronic abdominal pain, then Dr. Galliano and his team will develop an individualized treatment plan that is designed especially for the individual patient. First, sophisticated tests, such as differential retrograde epidural blocks, can determine if pain is originated from the abdomen, nerves inside the abdominal wall or the spinal cord. Dr. Galliano states that in recent animal studies results suggest that nerve impulses from the abdomen or viscera trigger sensory pathways to the spinal cord, which in turn transmits information to the brain about pain, temperature and touch. More importantly, Chronic Abdominal Pain Clinic of Florida enables collaboration between Dr. Galliano and his team of medical and surgical specialists to deliver the most appropriate treatments and follow-up care for CAP patients. The medical disciplines include gastroenterology, urology, hepatology, pain management, psychology and clinical research. Whats more, CAP patients can also benet from innovative treatments provided by Chronic Abdominal Pain Clinic of Florida medical research initiatives. To learn more about our services go to www.gallianosurgery.com Working with Dr. Galliano and Chronic Abdominal Pain Clinic of Florida, Daniel Goldman, PH.D., of Peace River Psychology Center talks on IBSa stress related disorder and contributor to CAP Most treatment professionals agree that IBS is a disorder with both medical and psychological bases. In particular, IBS appears to be a stress-related disorder. Daniel Goldman, PH.D., of Peace River Psychology Center, points out that the onset or worsening of symptoms often coincides with stressful life events, and can be triggered by anxiety and emotional distress. People suffering from IBS, Dr. Goldman notes, can be especially prone to worry and to emotional ups and downs. In addition, they commonly deal with the stress of taking care of others (e.g., children and elderly relatives) and of supporting friends and coworkers, but in return get little support themselves. Of course, its hard to say whether stress causes IBS or whether IBS causes stress. What doctors can say with reasonable certainty is that each worsens the other, creating a vicious circle of suffering. For instance, people with IBS commonly regard social situations as unsafe, and as a result, end up doing the worst things possible: worrying and isolating themselves. Their worry then causes symptom are-ups, and the cycle goes on. Much research to date supports the notion that IBS has some of its roots in psychological stress. Several studies have established a higher than usual incidence of psychiatric illnesses in IBS patients. Most notably, those with IBS show an unusually high incidence of anxiety disorders, including panic disorder, social phobia, and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). One study by researchers at the University at Albany, State University of New York, found that more than half of the 250 IBS patients studied suffered from an anxiety disorder. In addition, studies have shown that IBS patients report greater levels of psychological distress than do patients suffering from organic gastrointestinal diseases such as Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis. As such, psychotherapy is often a key component of effective treatment of IBS. A psychologist can evaluate patients to determine if underlying psychopathology may be complicating a patients bowel symptoms. Research on psychotherapy shows that IBS patients who are able to alleviate co-existing psychological disorders, such as anxiety and depression, also tend to experience improvements in their IBS symptoms. Even in individuals who do not have diagnosable psychological disorders, counseling can help in coping with lifes everyday stresses. Certain stressors are unavoidable, Dr. Goldman points out, but therapy can help make them feel less stressful, and in doing so, reduce IBS symptoms. Therapy helps people understand sources of stress they were not previously aware of and develop more effective coping strategies to deal with the stress caused by work, relationships, and medical problems. Psychotherapy also helps patients deal with stress directly related to their bowel problems. According to Dr. Goldman, the shame and embarrassment experienced by some IBS sufferers can be debilitating, and can devastate a persons selfesteem. Psychotherapy helps patients improve their self-condence and see that their social value does not hinge on their symptoms. Time spent with a psychologist can also be used to teach stress management and relaxation skills to patients who are constantly anticipating the return of their bowel problems, and to challenge their often catastrophic thinking about the social consequences of their symptoms.

Hernias can be simple or complex.There are many different types of hernias including femoral and umbili-cal hernias but by far the most common type is the inguinal, or groin, hernia.A hernia is essentially a rup-ture or tear. Hernias typically occur in the abdominal wall cav-ity, but the areas near the natural openings in the groin (inguinal), below the groin (femoral) or through the navel (umbilical) are among the most common.Another common type of hernia is incisional, which is to say the hernia is in an area where there has previously been a surgical incision. ese types of hernias are fairly common among patients who have had a bowel resection or open gall bladder surgery, and women who have undergone total abdominal hysterectomy.One thing is certain about hernias: they do not always resolve, even after a surgical procedure. Unfortunately, there are many hernia suerers who have had surgery three or four HERNIA HELPLose the girdle! Even complex hernias can be eliminated with this leading-edge procedure.times and are still not better. ese people have recurrent her-nias, since they occur over and over again.Not surprisingly, incisional hernias often become recurrent. Whereas incisional hernias can occur in areas where the abdomi-nal wall has been weakened by a previous surgery, recurrent incisional hernias are those that return even after having been repaired.Patients in this group are truly facing a dilemma: each time they have their hernia repaired, it seems to heal. en, within a period of months or even years, the hernia returns, usually worse than ever. Many of these patients go from doctor to doctor, sometimes being told to lose a hundred pounds or more before additional surgery can be attempted.As few general surgeons want to take on these challeng-ing cases, the patients often end up going through life wearing an abdominal binder under their clothes the same type of binder used to keep a surgical site stable after abdominal surgery.Like a girdle, the abdominal binder is a way to hold everything in place, but it is hardly a long-term solution: beneath it, the patient still has a large abdominal bulge, and underneath that their external and internal oblique muscles, and rectus abdominus muscle all the muscles that hold in the intestines and bowel have lost their shape.Fortunately, there is now a solution for these complex hernia cases.Domingo E. Galliano, Jr., MD, FACS, FASCRS, has received advanced training in Cleveland, OH for a minimally invasive procedure known as reconstruction of the abdominal wall, or complex abdominal wall reconstruction. Dr. Galliano is a surgeon in the Charlotte County area who is currently performing this leading-edge surgery.During the procedure, the surgeon actually performs a closure of the complex abdominal wall defect. Even in situations where all of the abdominal muscles have separated, and the patients internal organs are not COLON AND RECTAL SURGERYbeing held back by the muscles anymore, Dr. Galliano can use the advanced surgical technique to provide a solution. Recently, he held a screening session for hernias where half a dozen patients who attended were suering with these specific types of hernias. Some were candidates for complex abdominal wall reconstruction.If you are suffering from recurrent hernias and are unsure where to go; if you have been turned away by hospitals and surgeons; if no one else has been able to help you, then you may be a candidate for complex abdominal wall reconstruction. For an evaluation, call () -. FHCN Quite a number of conditions can affect the colorectal area, notes Dr. Galliano. One of the most dis -tressing and taboo is that of fecal incontinence/constipation.Perhaps even more isolating than the more well-known con -dition of urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence and constipa-tion can be caused by a variety of factors, explains Dr. Galliano.The bowel function is controlled by three things: the sphincter, a muscle which keeps stool from leaking; the rectums storage capacity, or how much the rectum can stretch and hold stool before it must be released; and rectal sensation, the feel-ing that one must void a bowel movement. If anything interferes with these three factors, then fecal incontinence or constipa-tion, or both, can occur.e problem is more com-mon than one might think. It aects as many as ve and a half million Americans. Damage to the nerves in the area, weak or Fecal Incontinence and Constipation:damaged muscles such as from dicult childbirth or episiotomy and inammatory bowel dis -ease are all examples of possible causes of fecal incontinence.Fortunately, continues Dr. Galliano, there are now new techniques for dealing with these problems.If dietary changes, medical management, or bowel retraining programs do not eradicate the problem, fecal incontinence and constipation may be addressed through surgical procedures to correct the underlying physical problem. In the event that sphincter dam age was caused by childbirth or rectal prolapse, surgery may prove to be an eective method of correction.Anal-rectal physiology testing stud-ies the function of the anus and rectum. Physicians order analrectal physiology evaluations, which combine several diagnos-tic tests, to help pinpoint the exact bowel problem a patient is experiencing. Test results determine the proper treatment to help correct or eliminate problems such as constipation, rectal pain, a bulging rectum, or fecal incontinence.Fecal incontinence and con-stipation typically respond well to professional treatment, assures tests and treatmentsDr. Galliano. e key is nding a specialist who is board certied in colon and rectal surgery able to diagnose the problem and nd a treatment that will restore bowel control or, at the very least, substantially reduce the severity of symptoms.The best approach is to develop an individualized treat-ment plan, which is the basis of our practice.

Bill was a freshman at college when he experimented with drugs and experienced a terrifying psychotic break. He believed the whole world even his family was against him. His distraught parents turned to the David Lawrence Center Crisis Stabilization Unit where he was kept safe and medically supervised. Bill spent the next two years working with a psychiatrist and therapist to identify and cope with these damaging thoughts so he could return to his studies. As he nears graduation, Bills relationship with his family has never been stronger and his future holds endless opportunities.Bill is among one in four in Collier County who suffer from a mental illness. One in nine of us will experience some form of substance abuse. When a family member, friend or coworker battles a mental health or substance abuse problem, we suffer with them. Thankfully, David Lawrence Center is here for our community. A not-for-prot organization founded and still governed by community leaders, the David Lawrence Center is the behavioral health component of our communitys healthcare network.
