First Congregational Church of Naples traces its heritage to the Pilgrims who landed in Plymouth, Mas s., in 1620. The congregation celebrates its origins with a March of the Pilgrims down Immokalee Road and into the church for the 10 a.m. service on Sunday, Nov. 18. The brainchild of pastor Dr. Les Wicker, the march is in its third year and continues to bring the congregation a sense of belonging to this important part of Americas history. Participants meet at the Target shopping center on Immokalee Road and march down the road and into the church to the beat of an Indian drum. Passing motorists wave and honk their horns all along the way. Once inside the church, the Pilgrim tradition continues with Thanksgiving hymns and anthems. The sermon for the day is a reenactment of events on the Mayflower and in the Plymouth settlement, including a meeting on the Mayflower to sign the Mayflower Compact,Naples church connects with the first ThanksgivingTHE PHRASE NO MAN IS AN ISLAND includes people living in the United States illegally.

More sex. Delicious, nourishing, replenishing sex. Bell-ringing, heart-twanging, cross-youreyes-and-fall-down-senseless sex. Is there anything else in the world so powerfully appealing, so utterly beautiful and so richly corporeal at once so earthy and so ethereal as sex? Besides hunger and thirst, is there any other urge or any need so profoundly and soakingly compelling as sex? No, of course not. Deny it or even try to, and you mark yourself as a patient in need of a therapist. Either that or youre a dead man or a dead woman. In which case call 9 -1-1 and hope they can revive you with an emergency sex pump, or something. Merely thinking about sex makes me want to go have it right now, in the same way that merely thinking about a bottle of Krug 1996 makes me want to go have a case of champagne right now. That would only set me back a few thousand dollars. Of course, Im no model for high-falutin desire: Merely thinking about Pabst Blue Ribbon sucked like love from the pear-shaped orifice of an ice-sweating can somewhere in the humid summer bosom of a woodsswamped meadow at dusk to the lap-slide, finger-picking fire of a Kelly Joe Phelps guitar, makes me want to go have that, too. Followed by sex. Which would set me back about 95 cents, if the sex were free. But no sex is ever free. If your sex comes freely and warmly given, the price is your heart. Its called love, and it costs everything you have 100 percent, all the time and all the way, every night and every day. Even if it doesnt, it will still cost you something. Some part of yourself, along with whatever other costs may arise. Although thats the way of human beings, I dont care. When I look at the crisp formality, at the presumption of moral authority, at the easy assumption of command adopted by such men as David Petraeus, whose adulterous sex cost him the directorship of the CIA last week and who knows what else or at the mantle of leadership accepted by any president, political leader, senior public official or high-ranking, oath-taking military or civilian commander I expect them never to have sex. Not only that, but I expect them never to go to the bathroom, never to appear with dirty fingernails or bad breath, and never to look foolish, in or out of the public eye. In other words, I expect them not to be human. At first glance. But on second thought, Im willing to let them have a little sex. Only for about 10 minutes between the hours of 1 a.m. and 3 a.m., however, when they arent working to protect or promote me, my family and my friends. And then they can have sex only with their spouses or with one significant partner, if they arent married. Not two significant partners. Not a significant partner, and an almost as significant partner. Not a spouse along with someone who would have been a spouse if she or he hadnt gotten to the party of life too late. Im still not willing to let them go to the bathroom or have any other needs, however. If they do, I dont want to know about it. Even the CIA and the FBI probably dont want to know about it. By the way, I dont want the CIA or the FBI to have any sex, either with anybody, ever, anywhere. And I have no second thoughts about that decision, whatsoever. For the most part, I think our leaders live up to my expectations. Clearly, they arent humans you can tell by the way they act. Theyre aliens. Have you ever seen such a bunch of goofballs as political leaders or appointees dressed to the nines, trying to look like they know something the rest of us dont? Often they do know something we dont, of course. But not about sex. You and I know as much or more about sex as the worlds most powerful leaders have ever known. Kings, queens, presidents, emperors, prime ministers, chiefs, generals, directors of this or that doesnt matter. They may have had more sex, but they sure dont know any more about it. Too often they screw it up completely, so to speak. Just look at our presidents. Thomas Jefferson. Warren Harding. Franklin Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Bill Clinton God amighty. Brilliant in their fields, some of them (not Harding), but sex slaves all, apparently. Come down through the ranks of senators, representatives, governors, mayors and the like, and you have, just recently, Newt Gingrich, Jim McGreevey, L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatick, John Edwards, Mark Sanford, John Ensign, Elliot Spitzer, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Gary Condit and Vito Fossella, to name only some. What I dont understand is how anyone would want to have sex with these guys all guys, because men have been the ones for whom the door to power has always opened most readily, and so their numbers are largest. For the most part, theyre so physically ugly. Petraeus, for example, looks like a worn handbag with blue eyes, seconded to a thrift shop. Newt Gingrich looks like a fat frog who just licked a fat fly off a lily pad on a farm pond in south Georgia. Elliot Spitzer looked like a cross between a prune and a potato, with facial features. So the desire to sleep with them must spring, in part, from an attraction to power not simply to the man, or the simple man, or the man who is quite simply ugly. And thats not about sex, exclusively. Instead, its about power and wealth. Its about status and conquest. And its about lying. Therein lies the problem, Ive decided. Its not the sex, whether I like the notion of these ambitious careerists having sex or not. Its the lying. If they lie to their spouses, theyll lie to us at the drop of a hat, any time they feel like it. And thats something we cant tolerate, even if it has occurred frequently in the once upon a time. t a f h y rogerWILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com COMMENTARY

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012 richLOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONStupid on Sandy amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly The new cover of Bloomberg Businessweek has a photo of a flooded New York City over a screaming headline, Its Global Warming, Stupid. The magazine thus joins the effort to make the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy into a piece of cheap agitprop. Global-warming alarmists are desperate for a threat from climate change more immediate and telegenic than the low-lying Maldives supposedly sinking one day beneath a rising sea. They need disasters, and need them right away. Theres a reason that Al Gore used an ominous photo of Hurricane Katrina as seen from space as the emblematic image for his propagandistic documentary, An Inconvenient Truth. In the case of Sandy, the alarmists revert to a simplistic style of reasoning (if it can be called that): Something bad happened. It must therefore have an easily identifiable cause. They then wrap this highly emotional appeal in the incontestable clothing of science. Bloomberg Businessweeks editor, Josh Tyrangiel, sent out a tweet: Our cover story this week may generate controversy, but only among the stupid. On the face of it, though, it requires belief in a series of improbabilities to be smart enough to meet Mr. Tyrangiels standards. Because of global warming, there was a Hurricane Sandy. Because of global warming, Sandy ran into a highpressure system and took a highly unusual westward turn directly into the coast. Because of global warming, it made that turn into New Jersey and affected the richest, most populated areas in the country. Because of global warming, it hit at high tide during a full moon. University of Colorado professor Roger Pielke notes that a Category 3 hurricane hasnt made landfall in the U.S. since 2005, the longest spell without one in more than a hundred years. While its hardly mentioned in the media, he writes, the U.S. is currently in an extended and intense hurricane drought. On the other hand, there were fearsome hurricanes long before anyone dreamed up, let alone manufactured, an SUV. In 1938, the so-called Long Island Express devastated Long Island and New England. An old newsreel film describing it sounds like a report on Sandy. A high-pressure system kept it from blowing out to sea. It hit densely populated areas. It brought a huge storm surge. The Category 3 storm killed hundreds of people. In 1821, another storm flooded New York City all the way up to Canal Street. If Bloomberg Businessweek had existed 190 years ago, it might have reported on the damage and warned: This is our future if we develop modern industry and transportation and make them both dependent on fossil fuels, idiots. The alarmists want us to crack down on fossil fuels and crimp our growth based on the bet that adjusting the climate to our liking in 100 years or so is within our power, and that when we endeavor to do it, China and India will feel moved to do the same. People who believe this shouldnt throw around the word stupid so lightly. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Now the work of movements beginsThe election is over, and President Barack Obama will continue as the 44th president of the United States. There will be much attention paid by the pundit class to the mechanics of the campaigns, to the techniques of microtargeting potential voters, the effectiveness of get-out-the-vote efforts. The media analysts will fill the hours on the cable news networks, proffering post-election chestnuts about the accuracy of polls, or about either candidates success with one demographic or another. Missed by the mainstream media, but churning at the heart of our democracy, are social movements, movements without which President Obama would not have been re-elected. President Obama is a former community organizer himself. What happens when the community organizer in chief becomes the commander in chief? Who does the community organizing then? Interestingly, he offered a suggestion when speaking at a small New Jersey campaign event when he was first running for president. Someone asked him what he would do about the Middle East. He answered with a story about the legendary 20th-century organizer A. Philip Randolph meeting with President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Randolph described to FDR the condition of black people in America, the condition of working people. Reportedly, FDR listened intently, then replied: I agree with everything you have said. Now, make me do it. That was the message Obama repeated. There you have it. Make him do it. Youve got an invitation from the president himself. For years during the Bush administration, people felt they were hitting their heads against a brick wall. With the first election of President Obama, the wall had become a door, but it was only open a crack. The question was, Would it be kicked open or slammed shut? That is not up to that one person in the White House, no matter how powerful. That is the work of movements. Ben Jealous is a serious organizer with a long list of accomplishments, and a longer list of things to get done, as the president and CEO of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. 2013, he notes, is a year of significant anniversaries, among them the 150th anniversary of President Abraham Lincolns Emancipation Proclamation, the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington, as well as the 50th anniversaries of the assassination of Medgar Evers and the Birmingham, Ala., church bombing that killed four young African-American girls. President Obamas 2013 Inauguration will occur on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Jealous told me on election night, as Mitt Romney was about to give his concession speech, We have to stay in movement mode. Young immigrants are doing just that. Undocumented students, getting arrested in sit-ins in politicians offices, are the modern-day civil-rights movement. There are other vibrant movements as well, like Occupy Wall Street, like the fight for marriage equality, which won four out of four statewide initiatives on Election Day. In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, and despite the enormous resources expended by the fossil-fuel industry to cloud the issue, climate change and what to do about it is now a topic that President Obama hints he will address, saying, in his victory address in election night, Democracy in a nation of 300 million can be noisy and messy and complicated. ... We want our children to live in an America that isnt burdened by debt, that isnt weakened by inequality, that isnt threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet. It was pressure from grass-roots activists protesting in front of the White House that pushed Obama to delay a decision on the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, proposed to run from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. More than 1,200 people were arrested at a series of protests at the White House one year ago. Now a group is blocking the construction of the southern leg of that pipeline, risking arrest and even injury, with direct-action blockades in tree-sits and tripods in Winnsboro, Texas, two hours east of Dallas. When those who are used to having the presidents ear whisper their demands to him in the Oval Office, if he cant point out the window and say, If I do as you ask, they will storm the Bastille, if there is no one out there, then he is in big trouble. Thats when he agrees with you. What about when he doesnt? The president of the United States is the most powerful person on Earth. But there is a force more powerful: People organized around this country, fighting for a more just, sustainable world. Now the real work begins. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012 patients have experienced anxiety and depression after their parents faced deportation proceedings. In my opinion, breaking up a family is more of a crime than not having papers when youre in this country, Dr. Puerto says. These children (of illegal immigrants who are detained/deported) are causing problems in the home. They get into fights with their siblings. Theyre not paying attention, theyre not sleeping well As unfortunate or in some cases even tragic as that may be, its ultimately beside the point, officials at the Collier County Sheriffs Office say, because the adults being detained or deported are here unlawfully. Since CCSO signed a contract with the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency in 2007, Collier has had one of the nations most ambitious programs aimed at detaining and deporting people who live here illegally. Known as 287(g), the agreement calls for local law enforcement officials to be trained as de facto federal immigration agents, enabling them to legally identify criminal and illegal aliens that they may encounter, and to initiate removal proceedings for those found to be in the country illegally. The program has been criticized here and in other counties where it has been instituted for stirring fear and distrust of law enforcement within the immigrant community, creating a chilling effect in which people are afraid to interact with officers or report crimes. The CCSO as well as an ICE spokesperson contacted for this story, however, insist that victims and witnesses of crimes are protected from any deportation proceedings. 287(g) has also been widely criticized for encouraging racial profiling. In September, the U.S. Department of Justice concluded in an investigation that an Arizona county using 287(g) was racially profiling Latino residents. Dr. Puerto and others in Southwest Florida have criticized law enforcement officers here for targeting Latinos at traffic stops to check for drivers licenses (driving without a license is an arrestable offense). The citizenship status of anyone processed in a Southwest Florida jail (as well as in most areas of the United States) is checked through a federal program called Secure Communities, which uses fingerprints and works here in concert with 287(g). My secretary was pulled over three times in a month, Dr. Puerto says, suggesting that it was because she is Latina, and that the officer pulled her over just to see where she was going. You dont pull someone over just to see where theyre going. CCSO efforts to enforce immigration rules have been controversial because they intertwine the federal agency ICE with local deputies and an immigrant community that makes up roughly a quarter of people living in Collier County, based on data collected from 2006 to 2010 for the Census Bureaus American Community Survey. Nearly 80,000 Collier County residents were born outside the United States, the Census says, and among those, more than 51,000 are not U.S. citizens. CCSO is one of a handful of law enforcement agencies 62 across 24 states, and the only one in Southwest Florida that participates in 287(g). There are 18 officers working here full time as 287(g) immigration agents. In addition to deputies, there are two detectives, a lieutenant and a sergeant. But just because local officials have the powers of federal ICE agents doesnt mean they randomly stop people to check papers or make arrests, says CCSO Commander Mike Williams, who used to head the 287(g) investigations team here and now works in the legal affairs department providing advice and acting as a spokesperson for the program. Thats one of the big misconceptions about our program, he stresses. We dont do that. I cant say never because I havent been there for every single citizen contact, but we dont stop people and check their immigration status. When the task force on the investigations side makes an arrest, its somebody whos already been approved for arrest by ICE, he adds. There could be a carload of six people who are all illegally present in the country, but were only going to get the one guy who we stopped the vehicle for. Its very, very targeted. Ten 287(g) officers work in the Collier County jail only, processing undocumented people who have been arrested. The other eight officers are part of a separate task force focusing on investigations and arrests, Commander Williams says. The CCSO didnt agree to Florida Weeklys request to interview 287(g) officers on the job about what they do and how they interact with the community, instead referring the reporter to Commander Williams and Lt. Keith Harmon, both of whom act as media and community spokespeople for the program. Secure Communities The Secure Communities program, checking citizenship status at jails through fingerprints shared with the Department of Homeland Security, is slated to be in effect everywhere by 2013, ICE says. Meanwhile, ICE is reviewing all its 287(g) programs and replacing the least productive ones with Secure Communities. In light of the nationwide activation of the Secure Communities program and the focus on other ICE enforcement programs, the fiscal year 2013 budget reduces the 287(g) task force program by $17 million, an ICE spokesperson wrote in an e-mail. The Secure Communities screening process, coupled with federal officers, is more consistent, efficient and cost effective in identifying and removing criminal and other priority aliens. ICE has directed local authorities to only go after criminals who are public safety threats or repeat offenders. Deportation proceedings are meant to target more serious criminals, the CCSO also says, although anyone who is processed through the jail system could be detained if theyre here unlawfully. We cant control who comes in the door, Lt. Harmon, who oversees the jail side of 287(g), says. Whoever is arrested and comes in the jail, one of the questions that theyre asked during intake is Where were you born? And if they state anywhere outside the U.S. or provinces, theyre referred to one of the deputies in the booking hallway to see if they can determine their immigration status: here illegally, a U.S. citizen or here as a lawful permanent resident, he adds. Regardless of what they come in for, if theyre foreign born, were going to interview them If they come in on a traffic offense or they come in on a murder charge, we dont necessarily care Were looking at your immigration history. Although Collier County doesnt know if the federal government will decide to end 287(g) here, Commander Williams and Lt. Harmon praise the program. They point out that the population in the jail has dropped, and that more than 4,000 people detained by ICE through 287(g) were responsible for about 27,000 crimes. The best way to keep the community safe is to remove criminals from the community, Commander Williams says. But some contend many of those crimes were routed in routine traffic stops and didnt involved criminals who could be considered dangerous. Grey Torrico, an activist who has spearheaded a push against local/federal immigration policies in the last year, is collecting stories from immigrants here who have had interactions with law enforcement. She is compiling them for her grant-funded project, the Collier County Neighborhood Stories Project. Many of the stories she hears involve people being arrested after being stopped for broken tail lights, windows, going over the white line at a stop sign, Ms. Torrico says. A lot of folks who ride bicycles in Immokalee are being stopped because they dont have the right equipment, and they are being asked questions around their status, so they call us. Commander Williams says its rare for an illegal immigrant to be detained by ICE for less serious offenses, but he does not apologize for it when it does happen. In the end, if you enter the country illegally and then proceed to commit a crime and get arrested, I dont think its unreasonable to expect that you might face removal proceedings, he says. I would think in almost any nation you would expect that So I dont understand why in this country that concept is so abhorrent to so many people. We try to triage and get the most serious offenders first, but there are situations when someone with only one or two driving offenses (is subject to removal proceedings). Its rare, but it does happen. But in the end, youre here illegally and you committed a crime.Deporting the worst? ICE has the resources to deport up to 400,000 people per year, officials say, while an estimated 12 million immigrants live in the United States and more than 1 million live in Florida illegally. So to prioritize, the agency uses a three-tier system to keep track of the most dangerous criminals who are targeted for removal. Level 1 consists of those who commit the most heinous crimes murder, rape, child molestation. Level 2 are those convicted of any felony or three or more misdemeanors. And Level 3 describes those convicted of offenses punishable by less than a year in jail, including DUI and also driving without a license. A conviction of driving without a license is a type of Level 3 offense that critics say has lead to racial profiling under ICEs Secure Communities and 287(g) programs. ICE does not have 287(g) detainees separated by the seriousness of their crimes, but they have kept track of those swept up by Secure Communities. Since ICE started the program in 2009, a look at their records in five South Florida counties Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Hendry and Miami-Dade shows about the same level of Level 3 and Level 1 criminal aliens were deported through February 2012. Among them, 1,056 Level 1 offenders, 701 Level 2 and 1,092 Level 3 offenders were deported. In Collier County during that time, 273 Level 1 offenders were deported, and 436 Level 3 criminals were removed. While those numbers suggests that just as many or more low-level offenders are being deported, ICE notes that if someone is a Level 3 offender, there might be other reasons he or she was targeted for deportation; for instance, if law enforcement has concluded that the person has gang affiliations. Shattered familiesA 2011 study by the Applied Research Center titled Shattered Families interviewed parents who were held at ICE detention centers. The ARC, a racial justice think tank, found that 17 Collier County and 10 Lee County children were placed in foster care because their parents were being held by ICE or had been deported. More broadly, the report also found that in the first six months of 2011, more than 46,000 mothers and fathers whose children were U.S. citizens were removed from the country. An immigration judge generally has the final say on whether someone detained by ICE is deported. Often people with dependent children are detained for a time in order for ICE to review their history, and then are allowed to remain in the country in a kind of limbo status. The ARC report says that on average, those types of detainees are held for 32 days.

Rev. Wicker portrays Gov. William Bradford, the first governor of Plymouth, who along with Miles Standish, John Carver and William Brewster were the colonys leaders. The church also includes a littleknown sidebar to the Plymouth story, that of Squanto the English-speaking Native American who literally saved the colonists by teaching them how to live off the land. A member of the Patuxet Tribe, Squanto was taken captive by the English, sold as a slave to the Spanish and freed by Catholic monks. He found his way back to New England aboard an English vessel, only to find his tribe decimated from smallpox. It was Squanto and his Indian friends who were invited to the first Thanksgiving. In the church service, they are portrayed by Seminole Indians. There were 102 passengers and 26 crewmen on board the Mayflower. Of that number, 48 of those who had paid for passage and half the crewmen perished from exposure, hunger and disease during the first winter, leaving the remaining number wondering if they should not abandon the colony and return to England. Two member families of the church, the Thomas Holcombes and the Jean Boggs from Connecticut and Massachusetts, trace their ancestry to the original pilgrims who crossed the Atlantic on the Mayflower. First Congregational Church is on Immokalee Road just east of I-75. The Pilgrim March begins at 9:40 a.m., and the worship service starts at 10 a.m. All are welcome.

HOLIDAYNOW AVAILABLE AND MUCH MORE! Freedom Waters Foundation hosts veterans aboard the Naples Princess SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYPicture a veteran isolated in his home, suffering from PTSD, struggling to get out his front door, unsure of himself and others, knowing what he is capable of and afraid that he may lose control. So he stays home, alone, lonely and sometimes teetering on a desire to live or not. Now, imagine that same veteran pushing himself out his front door, reaching out to others with trepidation, being invited to go fishing or just for a relaxing boat ride with people from the community who donate their time and vessels. Shy, quiet, even awkwardly admitting fear, the strong, brave veteran pushes himself onward and climbs aboard the boat. The boat leaves the dock and cruises the waterway. Some on board fish, while others simply enjoy the scenery, allowing the therapeutic mystery of the water and air to wash away their worries/ challenges. As the veterans and their hosts (boat owners and volunteers from the Freedom Waters Foundation) ease into getting to know one another, smiles and laughter begin to replace any of the original feelings of the day. Three hours later, boisterous voices can be heard as the boat returns to the marina. The veterans look lighter, stand a bit taller and wear grins of contentment. The nonprofit Freedom Waters Foundation serves local veterans by making these boat trips available in partnership with numerous local private and commercial boat owners. The foundations mission: to enhance lives by providing boating opportunities and marine-related activities for people with disabilities and life threatening illnesses, youth at risk and others with special needs. The foundation has been making smiles and memories for many on both coasts of South Florida wince it was incorporated in March of 2006. On Nov. 5 this year, the foundation hosted the inaugural FWF veterans meetand-greet aboard the Naples Princess. More than 100 guests, including veterans and their families, Naples Mayor John Sorey, Gregory Garcia of the Museum of Military Memorabilia and FWF board members and volunteers stepped on board with Naples Princess owners and hosts Noel and Carol Jordan, who donated the use of the vessel and her crew for the afternoon. Like all FWF boat outings, there was some awkwardness among all as they boarded, but by then end of the cruise, everyone was enjoying the boat, the water and each other. For more information about the Freedom Waters Foundation, visit www. freedomwatersfoundation.org. Paul Wilson, a volunteer with the Freedom Waters Foundation, talks with Korean War veteran Gilbert Broughton and his son, Richard Broughton, onboard the Naples Princess.Send holiday greetings to the troopsIberiaBank, in partnership with the American Red Cross, invites everyone to send cheer and words of appreciation to American troops this holiday season.

The Everglades Chapter of AFP honored its 2012 Philanthropists of the Year at a reception on Nov. 13 hosted by Arthrex, recipients of the 2011 Innovation in Philanthropy Award.The 2012 honorees are: Outstanding Philanthropists: Walter and Rosemary Blankley The Blankleys were chosen for their work with Guadalupe Center, where they have given generously to break the cycle of poverty in Immokalee through their support of early childhood education. A focus on philanthropy has been evident throughout their lives. As the CEO of Ametek, Mr. Blankley oversaw the funding of early childhood education programs in all of the 65 cities around the world where the company maintained plants. The Blankleys have always seen early childhood education as the best way to support the communities where they and their employees live. Fundraising Executive of the Year: Robert Moher, vice president of development and marketing, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida Mr. Moher was selected for his work leading the Conservancys recent $38 million capital campaign to a successful conclusion as well as his service as past president of the board of AFP. Rob embodies the very best characteristics of a fundraising professional. He is ethical, honest and respectful with the ability to build consensus among board, staff and volunteers, Tuck Tyler, board member and former chair of the Conservancy, wrote in his nomination letter. Outstanding Philanthropic Organization: Presstige Printing The company was selected for its consistent support of a large number of nonprofits in the community through staff volunteerism, the donation of services and sponsorships of fundraising events. President Bob Weidenmiller believes strongly in philanthropy, and the family-owned business is known for and investing back in the community. Outstanding Philanthropic Youth: Gigi Broccolos 2011-12 kindergarten class at Calusa Park Elementary The class was selected for its support of Clearwater Marine Aquarium through Charity for Change. When students read in their Weekly Reader about Winter, a bottlenose dolphin that lost her tail after becoming entangled in crab trap rope (a story featured in the movie Dolphin Tale), they decided to help Winters aquarium. They spent six weeks raising money and donated their spare change, tooth fairy money and allowances from doing chores for the cause. Inspired by their generosity, Seminole Casino donated funds to rent a bus so the students could go to the aquarium and meet Winter. This class experience is a wonderful example of how Charity for Changes School Giver Program is helping raise the next generation of volunteers and philanthropists.For information about the AFP Everglades Chapter, contact Elizabeth Hinkle, chapter president, by calling 877-6261 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA14 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012 Fine points of gambling lawIn October, state alcohol agents, assisted by local police in full riot gear, pointing their weapons, raided a bar in Largo, Fla., to shut down the latest gathering of the venerable Nutz Poker League, even though its players do not wager. (They meet at bars and restaurants, where management gives winners token gifts in exchange for the increased business.) A prosecutor told the Tampa Bay Times that Florida law defines illegal gambling as any game that permits players to win something even if they dont have to ante up. The raid (during which players were ordered to keep their hands where the officers could see them) came after a months-long undercover investigation.Recurring themes Among the most creative illegal behaviors are those of clever smugglers or immigrants trying to enter a country illegally. In September, two Moroccans tried to smuggle a Guinean man into Spain at the Melilla border in north Morocco by disguising him as a Renault car seat. One Moroccan dr ove, with the passenger perched on a seat in which the foam had been removed to make room for the Guinean. A police spokesman called the attempt novel. Indias notorious bureaucracy records deaths particularly ineptly, to the advantage of men seeking an alternative to divorce. They find it easier merely to swear out a death certificate on one wife so they can marry another, but that means the first wife will face years, and maybe decades, of campaigning to convince officials that she is not dead. BBC News chronicled the plight of Ms. Asharfi Devi, now 64, in September as she was finally declared alive after being deserted by her husband at age 23 and ruled dead at age 40. After Ms. Devi finally earned a hearing and brought relatives and evidence to the village council, deliberations took eight more months. Notwithstanding the ruling, the husband stuck to his story. Puzzingly, adults continue to accidentally ingest improbable objects, often seemingly unaware of what they did. Lee Gardner, 40, of Barnsley, England, swallowed a plastic fork 10 years ago, but said he forgot about it until violent stomach pains forced him to the hospital in August. And British student Georgie Smith, 19, became the latest person to accidentally swallow a regular-sized toothbrush (though the first doctor she consulted told her he couldnt spot any toothbrush on an X-ray). (With kids, the phenomenon is more understandable. Sinus-suffering Isaak Lasson, 6, of Salt Lake City was finally diagnosed in August to have accidentally stuck a Lego piece up his nose three years ago, and Hector Flores Jr., 7, of New York City, was found in October to have swallowed the whistle mechanism of a plastic duck, causing him to tweet when he laughed.) Darren Hieber, 33, became the most recent person to choose drastic means to reconcile with an ex. Twice Mr. Hieber, of Onawa, Iowa, arranged to have himself shot in order to win his ex-wifes sympathy. The first hit man shot Mr. Hieber in the leg, but the wife still ignored him, and a second job was arranged in March, with two different shooters, but that failed, also. Adding to his frustration, Mr. Hieber was sentenced to 10 years in prison in August because it is illegal in Iowa to have yourself shot.Updates Former U.S. Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho, who made the wide stance famous when he explained his alleged, notorious restroom encounter with another man in June 2007, has been sued by the Federal Election Commission because he used $217,000 in campaign donations to fund his legal defense to the resulting indecent exposure charges. Sen. Craig pointed out that visiting the restroom (irrespective of any alleged activities there) occurred during the ordinary course of Senate travel and thus that he was entitled to spend campaign funds. Two FBI agents, providing a backstory to underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallabs Christmas-time 2009 attempt to bring down an airliner in Detroit, said they believe the man accustomed himself to the tricked-out scivvies beforehand by wearing them full-time for the three weeks leading up to his flight (except for bathing). The agents, speaking to Detroits WXYZ-TV in September, suggested that the excessive wearing might have ruined the detonation mechanism.Bite backHattiesburg, Miss., dentist Michael West has for years been a well-compensated, prosecution-friendly expert witness who claimed he could match bite marks on victims bodies to bite patterns of whichever defendant the prosecutor wanted convicted. In dozens of cases, according to an Associated Press report, he helped persuade judges and jurors that his analysis was just as solid as fingerprint identification. (Other forensic experts regularly ridiculed Wests science.) In August, the Clarion-Ledger of Jackson, Miss., uncovered a 2011 deposition in which Mr. West finally admitted that his bitemark analysis should not have been used in court cases. It is not yet known how many defendants trials were tainted by Mr. Wests testimony.Least-competent criminals Jamel Wilson, 18, in Knoxville, Tenn., became the most recent hapless carjacker forced to abort his gunpoint heist after discovering the car was a stick shift, which he could not drive. He fled on foot but was arrested minutes later. David Weber, 53, was arrested in Miami Beach in September, minutes after allegedly stealing items from a locked car, including a credit card. Police were called when Mr. Weber tried to use the card at a nearby bar and learned to his dismay that the card belonged to the bartender.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012 NEWS A19 TOWN HALL TALKCatching up with an old friend and legendary TV/radio personalityFor those of us who keep abreast of the world around us through the eyes and ears of media professionals, theres no one like veteran Emmy winning TV host Rita Cosby. We grew up in the same town and remain friends from my days bouncing around Connecticut and New York. I thought I already knew Ritas story and always felt tremendous affection and respect for my friend and legendary TV personality and radio host. But when she revealed the story of her relationship with her father and their emotional journey together, I realized she has much, much more to share with the world. Ritas is one of the most vibrant voices in American journalism. Earlier this year, we welcomed her to speak to us at Moorings Park in support of the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida. She always brings her unique perspective and discernment to any important discussion, and thats certainly true in this weeks conversation. Q: Youve been on the front lines of battle, interviewed secretaries of state and were one of the last U.S. correspondents to meet with Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. What insights can you share with regard to the recent events in Benghazi and the battle for freedom in the aftermath of his oppressive dictatorship? A: Benghazi is a mess. There are still way too many unanswered questions as to why help was not given to Ambassador Chris Stevens and the very brave men who were protecting him. The American public and especially the families of those who died deserve full answers, and I hope they will get them soon. To me as a journalist, the chain of events simply doesnt add up. Gaddafi ruthlessly ruled his people with an iron fist. Many cheered when he was removed from power, but we still do not fully understand the man who replaced him, or the full intentions of the Muslim Brotherhood who are in charge there now. Will they protect Americans on their soil? Will they keep relations with one of Americas closest allies, Israel? I think we will be talking about the fragile state of affairs in Libya and these other nearby fledgling democracies for a long time to come. Q: In your storied career as a major cable network news anchor and veteran correspondent, what do you consider your most memorable interview? Most important? A: This is difficult to answer, as Ive been very fortunate to meet so many fascinating figures through the years. Soon after 9/11, I hopped on a plane to meet Yasser Arafat in his heavily fortified compound on the West Bank. The very next day, I spent several hours with then Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Also after 9/11, I spoke with Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf who, after answering a phalanx of questions, suddenly paused for what seemed like a lifetime when I asked him if his country would side with the U.S. or Bin Laden. He looked directly at me, exhaled audibly in a long, deep breath and finally said, We will side with America. I was relieved to hear this answer. Ill also never forget my impromptu discussion with Serb President Slobodan Miloevi, who snuck out of his prison cell at The Hague and suddenly called me on the phone to defend his war crimes. The next day, his phone privileges were revoked.Despite some of these historic conversations, the most important and deeply personal interview to me was with my own father. Q: This summer you paid your final respects to your father, about whom your bestseller, Quiet Hero, was written. After all you learned about his struggle for freedom, his enduring character and how he carried himself through both good times and bad, what single life lesson stands out from which we might also benefit? A: There are two powerful lessons to be learned from the journey I went on with my father and his incredible life story. First, my father decided to stay and fight against the Nazis when he was just a teenager, knowing there was a very strong chance he would die. He loved his country and freedom so much he was willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice if needed. Amazingly, he survived. Second, my father was clearly full of the visible and invisible scars of war, PTSD. He was emotionally and physically disconnected from his family for many years. As a result of understanding what he went through, I learned to forgive my father for his years of distance, and we reunited in the most powerful and beautiful way. Our story is one of profound reconciliation, something we all can learn from. Q: You are very busy these days with your nationally syndicated radio program The Rita Cosby Show, and with your role as special correspondent on the CBS newsmagazine show Inside Edition. When will we see you on Dancing with The Stars or Survivor: Everglades? A: Right now I have my hands full with lots of post presidential election coverage, but I do a mean Latin ChaCha! My work, with all of its travels covering and seeking out fascinating stories, is enough of a reality show for me and definitely one I would not like to miss out on. I love sharing the stories with my audience, hearing back from my viewers and followers on www.QuietHero.org and getting to know them. My days are filled with remarkable times, tremendous friendships and unforgettable experiences. My dance card is already quite full. Q: If you could interview anyone at any time or place in history, who would that be? A: Either Hitler, or perhaps Bin Laden. The day before our courageous military permanently disconnected his life and his cable TV, Id ask him, Have you ever heard of Seal Team Six? and/or, Wheres the helicopter pad? No matter who you are or where you stand as an American, we should all be extremely thankful for the tremendous sacrifice and selflessness of our troops. In World War II, they saved my dad. Today, theyre again on the front lines, fighting to preserve and protect our right to be free. Rick Borman is the president and producer of the Naples Town Hall Distinguished Speakers Series. Look for Town Hall Talk in Florida Weekly again on Nov. 29, when Mr. Borman revisits his historic interview with former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. r i r f h B n rickBORMANrick@rickborman.com The 2013 Naples Town Hall Distinguished Speaker Series>>Jan. 8: Explorer Bob Ballard >>Feb. 9: Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates >>March 9: Football star Tim Tebow >>March 22: Former Sen.

Guest speaker Kati Haycock, president of the Washington, D.C.based Education Trust and a leading advocate in childrens education, will share models of innovation that impact student learning. National and local data along with examples of what is working to help students become college and career ready will be highlighted. Ms. Haycock speaks about educational improvement before thousands of educators, community and business leaders and policymakers each year. The Education Trust works for the high academic achievement of all students at all levels, prekindergarten through college. The organizations goal is to close the gaps in opportunity and achievement. The Champions For Learning Education Forum is co-chaired by Dick Munro and Linda Flewelling and is sponsored by the Philharmonic Center for the Arts and the Naples Daily News. As a parent and a member of the business community, I encourage everyone to be involved and invest in education. It is critical to the success of area students, says Ms. Flewelling. Attending the forum, she adds, is an important way to learn about whats being done nationally and locally to support student success. Alan and Beverley Horton, whose passion and commitment have inspired the local community for many years, will be honored as the 2012 Heart of the Apple recipients at the event in recognition of their tireless efforts to provide relevant learning experiences for Collier County students.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA28 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012 An update on the NCH collaboration with Mayo ClinicBarely four months old, our affiliation with Mayo Clinic already has resulted in off-the-charts collaboration. We recently had three major experiences as we engaged with Mayos mission, vision and values, which very much mirror our own: Mayo mission: To inspire hope and contribute to health and well being by providing the best care to every patient through integrated clinical practice, education and research. Mayo vision: To provide an unparalleled experience as the most trusted partner for health care. Mayo value: The needs of the patient come first.Mayo Clinics mandate is to create, connect and apply integrated knowledge to deliver the best health care, health guidance and health information. By sharing with its affiliated network systems such as NCH, Mayo ensures that everyone benefits, and we all further our goal to serve patients and our communities. With that goal in mind, I recently joined 10 others from NCH Drs. David Axline, Adam Frank and Herman Spilker, along with Zach Bostock; Linda Cifani, ARNP; Debbie Curry; Phil Dutcher; Kristin Miller, RN; Mike Riley and respiratory therapist Scott Wiley for a three-day trip to Mayo headquarters in Rochester, Minn., to meet with 25 Mayo cardiologists and support staff. They couldnt have been more helpful, gracious and forthcoming. On the first full day of our visit, we focused on mutually selected topics, among them facilitating access, employee engagement, physician engagement and marketing. We shared our best practices and left with a five-page document identifying our thoughts and Mayo presenters by name and title.Meanwhile, back here at home, Michele Thoman, our chief nursing officer, and Helen Thompson, chief information officer, hosted Mayo Jacksonvilles team at the NCH North Naples campus. Their five-member ensemble included the medical director, chair of hospital operations, nursing operations administrator inpatient, chair of IT and unit head of campus planning and projects. The purpose of their visit was to hear about our experience with the 64 Smart Rooms weve created with our long-time IT technology partner, Cerner. Mayo Jacksonville is adding 100 new beds that will incorporate this state-of-the-art technology.We were pleased to be able to share our knowledge and reciprocate with Mayo. Finally, John McGirl, our chief human resources officer, and Drs. Carlos Quintero and Mario Trance visited Mayo Jacksonville to learn about its physicianoriented communication in health care program, which focuses on relationshipcentered care and communication skills with a goal of improving the patient experience. These three experience-based learning demonstrations are just the start of our collaborations with Mayo Clinic that we believe will, with time, change the face of health care in Southwest Florida. Although its early in the relationship, I am confident that the net result of this affiliation will not only benefit each one of us individually, but all those in our community who depend on our care. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. TO YOUR HEALTHHazelden offers four free programs on recoveryHazelden in Naples presents Inspiration to Strengthen Recovery, a series of four free programs starting Tuesday, Dec. 11, and continuing from 6:30-8 p.m. Tuesdays, Jan. 8, Feb. 12 and March 12, at First United Methodist Church, 388 First Ave. S.

UF study shows ADHD drugs do not raise risk of serious heart conditions SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe University of FloridaChildren taking central nervous system stimulants such as Adderall and Ritalin do not face an increased risk of serious heart conditions after treatment, according to a new University of Florida study that confirms findings reported in 2011. Published in the British Medical Journal in August, the study contributes to a decade-long clinical and policy debate of treatment risks for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. This is a question that has been lingering for about 10 years, says Almut Winterstein, a pharmacoepidemiologist and a professor in pharmaceutical outcomes and policy in the UF College of Pharmacy. Stimulant drugs are one of the most commonly prescribed medications for children after antibiotics and antidepressants, Dr. Winterstein says. Her study shows that every year, children have an approximately one in 30,000 risk of suffering a severe cardiac event. She found no increased risk for children who were taking stimulant drugs. A cardiac event includes sudden cardiac death, heart attack or stroke, and is typically caused by underlying heart disease. The latest results confirm previous study conclusions that there are no serious cardiac events resulting from short-term use of central nervous system stimulant drugs by children and young adults. In 2007, Dr. Winterstein conducted the first large population study to investigate the risk associated with the use of central nervous system stimulants in children and young adults between ages 3 and 20. Published in the journal Pediatrics, her results showed a 20 percent increase in emergency clinic or doctors office visits with cardiac-related symptoms, but no increase in death or hospital admission for serious heart conditions. In that study, she analyzed records from 55,000 children under Medicaid who had ADHD and were undergoing treatment between 1994 to 2004. But this population was still not large enough to determine if these drugs were indeed safe for children, Dr. Winterstein says. The new study, funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and in part by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, examines a larger U.S. population of 1.2 million youths eligible for Medicaid programs in 28 states. It follows a similarly large investigation published in December 2011 in The New England Journal of Medicine by Dr. William Cooper, who looked primarily at privately insured patients. We complemented Dr. Coopers study by utilizing Medicaid patients who are typically more vulnerable and at higher risk for serious adverse events, Dr. Winterstein says. This allowed us to examine patients with severe underlying heart conditions who received stimulants. Although the study confirmed there are no short-term effects from central nervous system stimulants, it did not reveal how these drugs affect patients in the long term. Neither of the studies was able to answer what happens in the long term, Dr. Winterstein says. Its an important issue to address, but we wont be able to answer the question until this generation of ADHD children, who began using stimulant drugs in the 1990s, reaches adulthood into their 50s, 60s and 70s. Another concern the study raised to UF researchers is related to children who were on continuous stimulant medication for more than 10 years into their adulthood. The effects of even minor increases in blood pressure and heart rate over a sustained period of time are unknown, Dr. Winterstein explains. A decade ago, when initial alarms were raised about stimulant use in children, health-care providers were cautious, but now the practice has increased with the knowledge of little risk of serious effects. Dr. Regina Bussing, a professor in the UF College of Medicines division of child and adolescent psychiatry, says concerns about possible serious cardiovascular risks might have resulted in children not getting needed ADHD treatment. Dr. Winterstein and her colleagues study yields important information for clinicians, Dr. Bussing says. Recommended evaluation practices should continue for young patients, she adds, including cardiovascular monitoring. Parents will still be advised to stop medication and take the child to the emergency room should he or she develop sudden onset of chest pain or shortness of breath, but the study alleviates doctor and parent concerns for the most serious cardiovascular events. Though her research does cast a positive light on the safety of central nervous system stimulants, Dr, Winterstein agrees that parents should continue to seek medical care if symptoms arise. She also has concerns about the increasing use of stimulant drugs for children without weighing the long-term risks and benefits.

Senior Helpers offers warning signs that older people might need assistanceAdult children who dont live nearby often come home to holiday heartbreak with deteriorating relatives they arent prepared to handle. This Thanksgiving and Christmas, thousands of adult children will be shocked to come home to elderly relatives who are lethargic and forgetful. They might find a messy house, bills piling up or worse, says Peter Ross, CEO and co-founder of Senior Helpers. Mr. Ross suggests that this holiday season, the family might gather around the kitchen table not only for turkey and treats, but also to map out a plan to care for aging relatives. His company also offers these warning signs that might indicate an older person needs help: Weight loss, no appetite, missing meals. Poor hygiene. Messy or even unsanitary conditions around the house. Inappropriate behavior (unusually loud or quiet, paranoid, making phone calls at all hours). Decreased participation in activities such as church, book club, etc. Scorched pots and pans showing forgetfulness for dinner cooking on the stove. Unopened mail, newspaper piles. Mishandled finances (losing or hiding money, paying bills twice). Senior Helpers also offers a Holiday Family Meeting Guide as part of its dementia and Alzheimers program called Senior Gems.

MARTY BECKER AND GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickWhile no medical procedure or medication or even home remedy, for that matter can ever be completely without risk, safer anesthetic agents, monitoring by specially trained veterinary technicians, and protocols that stress a pets safety and comfort before, during and after anesthesia have minimized risks substantially, even for older and chronically ill pets. Thats the good news. The bad news? Pet owners too often opt out of potentially lifesaving protocols or dont follow veterinary advice before sedation, increasing the risks for their pets. With proper pre-op care, anesthetic risk is very low. That wasnt always the case, of course, and old fears based on old information can be difficult to ease. But dont let your fears keep you from providing your pet with care that can dramatically improve quality of life, such as necessary dental care. (If you doubt how much, just think of how desperate you were for dental care the last time you broke a tooth or even had a toothache!) Bringing your knowledge up to date and working with your veterinarian to minimize risk will help you make the best decisions when it comes to your pets care. So whats changed in recent years? In a word: everything. Everything, that is, except your veterinarians guidelines for how to present your pet on the day of a procedure with an empty stomach. Anesthetic drugs tend to induce vomiting, and that can lead to aspiration pneumonia. Thats because the larynx relaxes during anesthesia, which means vomit may end up going down the trachea to the lungs instead of through the esophagus and back to the stomach. And once in the lungs, pneumonia can develop. If you give your pet food or water after midnight on the day before surgery, call your veterinarian and fess up. Its always better to reschedule an elective procedure than to go forward at higher risk than necessary. Your active role in your pets anesthesia may not have changed much, but thats not true of the role of your pets veterinarian and veterinary technicians in a pre-anesthetic examination and diagnostics. These are intended to spot and address any health problems your pet has before anesthesia. While many pet lovers probably think of veterinary anesthesia as a gas given through a mask over the animals face, the modern practice of preparing an animal for surgery is a no-size-fits-all combination of injectable medications (often combining anesthesia and pain-control agents), anesthesiainducing gas and pure oxygen the latter two delivered through a breathing tube to maintain an animals unconscious state. The use of intravenous fluids during anesthesia is another safety measure, meant to allow a veterinarian to react rapidly if something unexpected happens during surgery. Keeping tabs on it all is a veterinary technician with special training in monitoring the animal during anesthesia, providing the surgeon with the information he or she needs to adjust or react to any unforeseen problems. Heating pads are another safety measure, preventing organ damage if a pets body temperature dips and increasing comfort as a pet recovers. Just as the pre-anesthetic advice from the veterinarian needs to be followed to the letter, so, too, do any take-home instructions. While pain medications and antibiotics may already be on board as the pet leaves for home, these medications may also need to be given in the days to follow. The improvements in anesthetic agents and protocols have such high levels of safety that you should no longer dismiss essential care because of what may be an outdated knowledge of the risk. Do your part to help your pet, and your veterinarian will do the rest. Having a technician carefully monitor a pet during surgery is one of many ways veterinarians reduce anesthetic risk.

Thats true if you live in Naples, Fort Myers or Punta Gorda. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., which tracks such things, reported that from June 30, 2011 to June 30, 2012, deposits were up 4.6 percent across Southwest Florida. But where you live within the region affects how much deposits increased in that year. It was up a modest 0.1 percent in Charlotte County, a healthy 2.7 percent in Lee County and a robust 8.1 percent in Collier County. This year has been phenomenal, said Colleen Kvetko, president of Shamrock Bank of Florida in Naples.

MONEY & INVESTING Worries of the wealthy apparent at Opals Family Office and Private Wealth ConferenceWhat the wealthy think and do is of interest not just to their wealthy peers, but also to the average investor and to those professionals selling their services and wares to this audience. The wealthy generally travel in small circles as they share the same high-end tastes and preferences in the places they live and vacation. They often share their investment ideas as they seek exceptional returns, safe havens and better tax strategies. Personal relations rank high in priorities and they want to meet the people with whom they do business. Beyond the summer holidays in the south of France, another venue for wealthy families to share face-to-face and collaborate is at a family office/private wealth conference. Such events are usually held at high-end hot spots such as the Newports of the U.S. and the Zurichs and Dubais of the world. One of the most well known wealth conference hosts is Opal. I recently attended its Family Office and Private Wealth Management conference held in Napa. For three very full days (8 a.m. to 6 p.m.), attendees are deluged with investment ideas and strategies and a network of new contacts. Presenters include investment managers, energy companies, investment consultants, economists, lawyers, systems experts, etc. There are about 30 sessions. Some insights and comments struck at core truths about the very complex world in which we now live. Investment returns have been a challenge for many wealthy in 2012. Approximately one-third of the wealth offices in attendance were holding cash in excess of 15 percent and many have exposure to hedge funds which, through the end of September, are up 4.7 percent while the S&P is up 14 percent. But wealth families face more challenges than just investment returns; they want their intellectual, social and human capacities to be utilized. For them, it is not only about money but it is a lot about money. The most repetitive underlying theme was the concern about the U.S. taxation policy. Tax advisors speaking at the conference were advising their clients to prepare for higher levels of taxation. To the extent that families can re-domicle, they were moving from high tax jurisdictions such as Illinois, California, New Jersey and New York and moving to no/low tax states such as Florida, Texas and Wyoming. Families are becoming highly defensive in an environment of aggressive IRS audits. The audit rate for taxpayers earning $10 million or more has risen from 12.4 percent to 32.4 percent over the past four years. The IRS is not deploying local teams for many of these audits. The audit forensic specialist teams (disparagingly referred to as IRS wealth squads) come from all over the U.S. Two tax strategies were suggested before the years end. The first is creating family limited partnerships, which allows the senior generation to hold majority shares and gift minority shares at very large valuation haircuts to children and grandchildren. The other tax strategy that was suggested was exiting the S Corp. structure and moving businesses into a family LLC or LLP. The S Corp. makes it difficult for family estate planning. Further, the panel felt that the family LLC or LLP imposed protection on descendants who consciously declined to enter into prenuptial agreements. Wealthy families often have a unique perception and style in investing. As it is fundamental to human behavior that people will not let go of what they understand, families do not want to let go of what has made them successful (e.g., real estate, startup companies, etc.) So, telling them to invest differently from their tried and true approaches can fall on unenthusiastic ears. They often think in the vein, We have been successful and will continue while a manager or consultant is suggesting the need to diversify away from a single asset class. On investment strategies, they favored income with limited downside risk. That thinking is largely behind the recent years reallocation from equities ($750 billion outflow) to fixed income assets ($850 billion inflow). In that light, there is concern that the no risk investments have gotten too crowded and an exit from the (fixed incomes) crowded theater might prove difficult. Family investors often made their fortune controlling their destiny investing in (uncontrollable) equity markets are not their comfort level. Investment risk was defined in multiple ways: dynamic and non-linear; permanent loss of capital; having multiple factors and multi durations; a mix of behavioral and chaos theory; happening quickly and not always rational as per chaos theory. Managers often hear: I am very aggressive followed by the non sequitur, But please do not lose me any money. Some other interesting facts: more than 30 percent of families portfolios are invested in alternatives. Families are holding more cash than their norm. Families need to consider allocations that will stay with the portfolio through future generations as 80 percent of wealth in a family disappears by the third generation.It was not all work and no play. The conference ended with a visit to the Charles Krug winery and conference attendees met the Mondavi family members and heard about their generational planning and family business roles. Of all the sessions, I liked the Sauvignon Blanc panel the best. Jeannette Showalter, CFA, is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems.

Good news I think its a good thing, said Robbie Roepstorff, pr esident of Edison National Bank in Lee County. That sentiment is echoed by others who have looked at the increase in deposits. I like that, said Dr. Gary Jackson, director of the Regional Economic Research Institute and an assistant professor of economics at Florida Gulf Coast University. It would be a concern if it was falling. Several economic factors have contributed to growing deposits, according to experts consulted by Florida Weekly. Dr. Jackson cited several elements that contributed to the uptick in Charlotte to the upsurge in Collier. It starts with a modest but fairly consistent growth in population. It typically grows at 1 percent a year, Dr. Jackson said. That, clearly, doesnt explain, for example, the 8.1 percent growth in Collier. The FDIC report, Dr. Jackson said, does imply savings are up. In the long-run, savings is very important, Dr. Jackson said. Money is translated into investments. Those investments can be in anything from starting a new business to an established business hiring another employee or a consumer buying a new refrigerator. The increased deposits allow something else to happen, Dr. Jackson pointed out. One of the phenomena we see is that business and consumers are trying to retire debt, Dr. Jackson said. Money is going into banks but it is then going other places. We often say people either have the ability to save or consume, Dr. Jackson said. Ms. Roepstorff at Edison National said that as a banker she couldnt look at just one year-to-year sample or snapshot of the deposits. She went to the FDIC website and did a bit more digging into how Lee County and her bank, which has locations in Fort Myers and on Sanibel and Captiva islands, fared. From 2008 to 2009, she found deposits in Lee County increased by 11.5 percent and her banks deposits grew by 11.2 percent. Then, as the Great Recessions lingering effects took hold and Lee County battled numerous foreclosures, countywide deposits dipped 4.2 percent, from $12.1 billon to $11.6 billion from 2009 to 2010. Edison was steady, though, Ms. Roepstorff said, with its deposits increasing 3.6 percent. From 2010 to 2011, Lee County deposits dipped another 1.6 percent. Now, after back-to-back decreases, Lee County deposits are once again growing. Ms. Roepstorff is pleased that the county increase was 2.7 percent and Edison Nationals was a tick better at 2.8 percent.Causes for increasesMs. Roepstorff said some clients have shifted money out of stocks and into banks and leave more of their money in their bank accounts. Safe and sound, said Ms. Roepstorff, who added that the FDIC has proved its strength. She said four or five banks have closed in recent years, which has helped her bank pick up customers and deposits. Thats not all. We feel the real estate market has bottomed out, Ms. Roepstorff said. She said all this activity is just part of a trickle of encouraging developments. She said loan volume is up double digits. Thats a change from a few years ago. People were very reluctant to borrow, she said. One of the striking elements of the FDIC report is the stark contrast between the increase in deposits between Charlotte and Collier counties. The 8.1 increase in Collier is 80 times greater than the 0.1 increase in Charlotte. What gives? Don Martin, marketing director at Charlotte State Bank in Port Charlotte, isnt sure about all the elements that go into the difference but one factor is clear. The population, Mr. Martin said, referring to Naples indisputably higher per capita personal wealth. That explanation also makes sense to Ms. Kvekto. I think it goes back to demographics, Ms. Kvetko said. Our demographics are very different. A quick glance at www.city-data.com backs up that perception with statistics. In 2009, the most recent year with available numbers, the median income in Charlotte County was $40,362. That same year the median income in Collier County was $52,988. That all contributes to cash on hand, Ms. Kvetko said. Still, although modest, the increase in deposits in Charlotte County is welcome news and is rippling through the economy. Residential home sales have been pretty steady, Mr. Martin said. Ms. Kvetko, president of Shamrock Bank of Florida in Naples, sees good things going on and part of the explanation is how Shamrock goes about its business. Good old-fashioned banking, Ms. Kvekto said. She thinks many customers feel comfortable with a community bank and she sees that in more than one way. We have grown tremendously on both the deposit and loan sides, Ms. Kvekto said. Shamrocks growth was more than twice as robust as the countywide numbers reported by the FDIC. In the same 12 months covered by the FDIC report, Shamrock reported its deposit growth at 19 percent. The numbers are even better when Shamrock crunched the figures for the first nine months of 2012. For that period, Shamrock reported, its deposit growth was 24 percent. Loans grew 18 percent over the time of the FDIC report and the first nine months of the year. Ms. Kvetko added that Shamrock, which is based in Naples and was started in 2007, opened a branch at Ave Maria on Aug. 13 and already has about $5 million in deposits at that branch. IberiaBank of Collier County also reported good news that echos the FDIC report. IberiaBank sent out a news release recently that noted, among other things, these highlights for the third quarter of the year: Total revenues increased approximately $8 million, or 6 percent, while total expenses increased less than $1 million, or 1 percent. Loans increased $1.1 billion, or 19 percent, over the past year. Business is so good at IberiaBank, according to Keith Short, president of the banks Lee and Collier markets, that its looking for help. Trying to hire new associates, Mr. Short said. The trends may be good but Dr. Jackson cautioned about reading too much into that relatively short-term FDIC report. As he chatted with Florida Weekly a famous quote most often attributed to Mark Twain, but which the revered author credited to 19th century British prime minister Benjamin Disraeli was mentioned: There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics. Dr. Jackson chuckled and said, you got to be really careful. Still, the statistics and evidence appear to be good economic news.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Life Milestones Bring Tax ChangesVarious life changes bring celebrations or condolences, and they often bring tax changes, too. Pay attention to those, or risk ending up with headaches or unnecessary costs.For example, a new job means youll fill out a W-4 form. Do so carefully, lest you end up having too much or too little withheld. If you have substantial other income, such as interest and dividends, adjust the withholding accordingly. If youre paying off a mortgage or student loans, or are otherwise able to itemize deductions, you might adjust your withholding allowances upward to reflect your lower tax liability. When changing jobs, its often best to transfer your retirement assets such as a pension and/or 401(k) plan to a traditional IRA, where you can control the investments. You might also be able to move those assets from your old employer to your new one. If youre receiving retirement payments, review your withholding again and determine whether your tax bracket will change. Getting married introduces the marriage penalty, where, if both spouses work, the couple may pay more in taxes than two single people with the same incomes. So its important to revise your withholding status immediately. Divorcing? Adjust your withholding to reflect your new filing status. With the splitting of marital assets, your other income (such as interest and dividends) will change, and mortgage interest may be divided or eliminated. Assets will also be divided, and the tax impact will follow the person who retains the property. Forced sales of assets might generate capital gains. Alimony is generally taxable to the person receiving it and deductible by the person paying it, but child support is neither taxable to the recipient nor deductible by payer. Your filing status is based on the last day of the tax year, too. Theres much more to know about these and other life changes (such as adoptions, disasters, unemployment, etc.). To learn more, visit fool.com/taxes or IRS.gov. The IRS website even sports a W-4 calculator tool to help you. Better still, consult a tax pro. Bio-YechA while back, I noticed that a certain small biotechnology company had gone up 10 percent per day for several days in a row. I knew nothing about the company, but I intended to buy it, hold it until the next day, and then sell on another days 10 percent gain. Nearly to the minute, once I placed my order, the stock began falling. I sold three weeks later for a 28 percent loss. Lesson learned. S.D., Salt Lake CityThe Fool responds: As you noted, you were making decisions and allocating your money without even knowing much about the company. Thats always a risky proposition. Many stocks, especially those of small companies, can be quite volatile, and the more you know about them, the better. Biotech companies, for example, might rise on rumors that a certain drug will soon receive FDA approval. But then if the drug is instead rejected, the stock will swoon.Always know why youre buying into a company, and aim to do so when its undervalued. Then keep up with its progress. Great wealth is best built over longterm investments, too, not one-day ones.

A Clean StartClean Energy Fuels (Nasdaq: CLNE) is powering our way to a sustainable energy future by providing natural gas for trucking fleets in the U.S. and Canada.The company is building Americas Natural Gas Highway. If accomplished, the network of natural-gas fueling stations along busy trucking routes would spark even greater demand for nat-gas-powered engines. Of course, this would lead to considerably more business for Clean Energy Fuels.Theres risk, though. Clean Energy Fuels has yet to post a profit. But before you write it off as a viable investment, consider this: Building a natural-gas infrastructure from the ground up isnt cheap, and it wont happen overnight. That combination makes this stock a speculative play. Clean Energy Fuels alternative-fueling plan has the potential to transform the trucking industry. Game-changing strategies like this are meant to be risky. And thats OK, because with greater risk comes added reward. On the plus side, Clean Energy already has 530 fleet customers, and its revenue has been growing by more than 20 percent annually over the past five years. This investment idea is a long-term one, meaning that it needs considerable time to deliver on its promise. Just be sure to check in periodically to verify that the investment thesis hasnt changed.

(Answer: LOreal)Buyout BusinessQWhen one company spends millions of dollars buying another, where does that money actually go? R.Y., South Berwick, MaineAIf it pays cash, the money goes to the shareholders of the acquired firm. There can also be payments to other owner classes, such as holders of preferred stock. On some occasions, some of the cash tendered may go to debt holders, if part of the purchase price is allocated to buying back debt.If the acquirer buys with its own stock, then shareholders of the acquired firm will get shares of the acquiring company in exchange for their acquired-firm stock. They can sell these shares for cash or simply hold on. Companies typically buy other companies for more than their pre-purchase market price, paying a premium. Some purchases involve combinations of cash and stock. In all-stock transactions, no cash trades hands.***QHow do private and public companies differ? W.B., Greenville, N.C.A A public company is one that has sold some shares of itself to the public. Theyre generally required to file quarterly earnings reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), detailing their revenue, expenses, taxes, debt loads, cash levels, income or losses and much more. These reports are available to the public.Meanwhile, owners of privately held companies, which most of us cant invest in, dont have to reveal much. They can focus more single-mindedly on their businesses and not what the stock market thinks of them. The biggest private companies include IKEA, Cargill, Koch Industries, Mars, Bechtel, Publix Super Markets, Ernst & Young, Pilot Flying J, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Toys R Us, Fidelity Investments, Amway, SC Johnson & Son, Hilton Worldwide, Kohler, Perdue, Levi Strauss, Gilbane and Hallmark Cards.Got a question for the Fool?

A production of The Naples Players, the play by Ken Ludwig follows the exploits of Jack and Leo, downon-their-luck Shakepearean actors who hatch a desperate plot to pass themselves as long-lost nephews of a rich old woman in hopes of winning her inheritance. Things get even more complicated, however, when the two are forced to don dresses after discovering the long-lost nephews are actually nieces, and Leo falls for a relative of the elderly woman.SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________ COURTESY PHOTOBrad Goetz and Robert Armstrong as Jack and Leo, wigs in hand, with Kat Ebaugh and Ellice McCoy-Ulrich as Audrey and Meg.SEE LADIES, C3 Husband-and-wife artists toy with old toys BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com THE DOLLS ARRIVE OLD AND LEAVE NEW. What Fort Myers artists Jeff and Dale Ocasio do to them isnt as much plastic surgery as it is reincarnation. The dolls neglected, abandoned, thrown away come to the Ocasios as one thing and are transformed into something totally different. Maybe they get crazy, spikey hair or pointy ears. Maybe their skin takes on a pale mint hue. Maybe they sprout antlers. Some end up with a whimsical appearance, such as the lady with big, daisy-like petals sprouting from her head. Then theres the green S Monster that looks as if it just slid out of the swamp. And Spencer, a robot with oversized hands and one giant eye in the middle of his face. If aliens on other planets have children, its a good bet they carry around dolls like the ones born from the Ocasios somewhat warped and untamed imagination.
SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSWalking the mean streets of the SouthThis week Im visiting a Southern state, a place in the nation so conservative it makes conservative parts of Florida look like liberal enclaves. The Confederate flag no longer flies above the capitol here, but it might as well. Id hate to call it backward someone might shoot me. The women, of course, are all Southern belles, schooled in that subtle sense of propriety theyve been teaching girls here since cotton was king. As I recently found out, its the kind of place where no self-respecting woman would wear red pants or red lipstick or heaven forbid both at the same time. Im staying at a bed and breakfast in the historic downtown, a cute old home where Civil War speeches were once made on the front porch. Every morning the owners serve scrambled eggs alongside slabs of country ham. Im convinced they have me on a secret weight-gain regimen. Amidst all this Southern flair, I discovered a small theater that shows art house films, and on an afternoon off I decided to see a documentary that was playing. For the occasion I slipped on my big city clothes red pants, knee-high boots, fire engine red lip gloss the type of outfit I wear every week elsewhere and never get a second glance. No one seemed to notice me on my walk to the movie theater. It was late in the afternoon, and most people were at work. The few folks I passed nodded politely and moved on. In the theater itself, I blended in with the small crowd of older folks and art students from the nearby university. There was even another young woman there in cherry red pedal pushers. But the walk home was a different story. The movie let out as the sun dipped behind the buildings and the light drained from the sky. Suddenly I was the only person on the streets. The houses that had looked homey and welcoming during the afternoon were cast in shadows, and I hurried past their vacant exteriors. Groups of men leaned against graffiti walls, and one or two of them called out as I passed. My palms started to sweat. As I entered the final stretch, I crossed in front of an old gas station where a young man filling up his car gave me the once over. We made eye contact and he smiled to reveal a full set of gold teeth. Excuse me, he said as I walked in front of his car. Are you from the United States? I gave him my most no-nonsense look. I am. Oh, OK, he said. Its just you remind me of a friend of mine. Shes from the Ukraine. Well, Im from Florida. He grinned and there was that grill again. Ive seen Hustle & Flow, the Oscar-winning film about a pimp in Memphis, and I had the sudden impression that this man was the real thing. Not a movie-star version, but an actual pimp. As I pressed on, it occurred to me what he had been saying. He thought I was a hooker. A real-live pimp mistook me for a Ukrainian prostitute. And thats when I realized Im no Southern belle. s a m o c b artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012 Together for 30 years, they opened Ocasiocasa, their art gallery/studio, in downtown Fort Myers last summer. We just wanted to share (our art), says Dale. Were trying to build a fan base. Reactions to their work vary. Someone at Art Walk said (our work) was a cross between Tim Burton and Maurice Sendak, Dale says about visitors to the gallery during downtowns most recent first-Friday monthly event. Although she allows that some people think the dolls are creepy, Dale says that is not the couples intention. Jeff doesnt like going real dark with stuff, she says. Not that we dont have an admiration for that genre, but its not us. But still, some people hesitate to enter the gallery/store. They just think the dolls are too scary. (One customer called a work Santa Claus with a Dead Baby.) But others think the Ocasios creations are cute. (One customer described the space as happy, Dale says.)Weird circusFor their November exhibit, Island of Misguided Toys, they modified the iconic Etch-A-Sketch, made a two-faced Jack-inthe-Box and robots with giant hands and anvil feet. Using actual matchboxes, they created toy cars with headlights like eyes There are also some bamboo walking sticks with resin heads (These were featured in the gallerys October BAM BOO! exhibit. The Ocasios also made two zombie dolls in celebration of downtown Fort Myers Zombiecom festival last month.) Their work reminds Dale of a somewhat otherworldy circus, she says, explaining that the dolls are like a family: Everyone is different, yet theres something that connects them to each other. The dolls look as if theyre made of papier mache, but theyre actually created with adhesive tape wrapped over OLD vinyl dolls. I cover the doll with tape, make the character, says Jeff. Ill make eyebrows, a face if it has a face shoulders. If its looking more masculine, Ill go in that direction. Before you know it, it has a character to it. For the eyes, they use things like marbles, beads and glass stones. People say, It looks so real! Jeff says. Jeff does all the sculpting, and then Dale takes over with the painting. Throughout the process, she also takes dozens of photographs, from which she later creates digitally altered illustrations. Many of the illustrations, along with short, stop-action films, can be seen at www.ocasiocasa.com.How it startedThe Ocasios have been making their weird, whimsical dolls for a few years now. Jeff started one summer when I was on a road trip, Dale says. He was working on several, but he texted me a picture of (a doll he named) Orlando. Up until then, she says, the couple had traveled to Renaissance fairs across Florida selling walking sticks that Jeff had carved from bamboo. By day, Jeff works for a bank as a loan administrator. As he travels for his job, he keeps an eye out for thrift stores and yard sales where he pokes around for dolls to rescue recycle, modify, re-create. Or, as Dale likes to say, Theyre upcycled. The dolls are priced from around $75 to upwards of $200. A custom-made box is $35 extra. Finding inspirationIf a dolls head or limbs moved in its original incarnation, Jeff is sure to keep that mobility as he transforms the toy into art. You can pick them up, he adds. Theyre not ceramic; theyre masking tape. A sign in the gallery advises: Its OK with us if you want to touch the art. Thats how we roll. The store is also pet-friendly. They keep a water bowl outside on the sidewalk and welcome dogs into the store. Jeff says when a dog recently took a liking to one of their motorized dolls, the owner bought it as a toy for the pampered pooch. Jeff never knows where hes going to find inspiration. He once purchased a box of old billiard balls at a yard sale, not knowing know he would eventually do with them. Sometime later, he says, while in a Japanese steakhouse on a business trip, Im looking around, waiting for my dinner, and I see Oriental mugs of the Buddhas. It hit me: I ought to make some Buddhas! So I took out my phone and made a note to myself. The billiard balls became the perfect Buddha bellies. They never know what unusual thing a doll (or a billiard ball) will wind up looking like, such as the penguin toy that turned into a gargoyle. I made this guy while I was watching Americas Got Talent, Jeff says, adding, I know Im done when she says, Thats so cute! DOLLSFrom page 1 Dale and Jeff Ocasio

Professional Chefs Exhibition Cooking Business and Residential Visit our Omelette Station at Clive Daniel Home on November 17th from 12-2 CATERING ARTS COMMENTARYHenry & Tom & Warren: A camping trip not to be missedApparently, you cant escape politicians, even if you get lost in the woods. In Camping With Henry & Tom, Florida Repertory Theatres inaugural play in the newly renovated ArtStage Studio Theatre, Thomas Edison gets stranded in the woods with his friend Henry Ford and President Warren G. Harding. The three have been camping in Maryland with others, under the watchful eye of the Secret Service, when they sneak off for a ride in what else? a Model T Ford. Ford (an upbeat and forceful Graham Smith) is driving, but hes also talking too much and not paying attention. He winds up hitting a deer and driving off the road. Stuck in the woods, the three might have to camp out for the night, as no one knows where they are or even that theyre gone. They must find a way to survive until theyre rescued. As Ford and Edison are treated virtually as saints in Southwest Florida, especially in Fort Myers, where both had winter homes, this play has a readymade appeal for local audiences. (Its amazing to think its being presented just feet away from the historic Arcade Theatre, where all three actually came to watch movies on the silver screen.) But playwright Mark St. Germain doesnt buy into the myths and presents these men as highly flawed, complex characters. It makes for a most interesting play. His Thomas Edison is especially entertaining: acerbic, cantankerous, difficult. And thanks to Ed Pilkingtons keen acting skills, we care for the man, despite his rough edges and antisocial behavior. (When he stepped out of the Model T, I almost gasped, because he looks so much like Edison.) Mr. Smith as Henry Ford is a little bantam rooster of a man, and just as feisty. Self-righteous and judgmental, he has strong ideas about smoking and drinking. Yet he curses like a sailor, repeatedly saying Aw, shit! as Midwesternly chipper as if he were proclaiming, Gosh darn it! The more we learn about Mr. Ford, the less we like him. Not only is he rabidly anti-Semetic, but it turns out hes not above blackmail to get what he wants. Hes close-minded and stubborn, gleefully retelling a story about how he destroyed a red car his factory had built, famously declaring, Boys, you can have any color you want, as long as its black. Peter Thomassons President Harding is as reticent as Ford is overbearing. Hes ill at ease in his life, uncomfortable with his power and position. Mr. Thomasson skillfully displays his characters wide range of emotions, from apprehension to anger to vulnerability. Florida Rep intern Brian Hatch makes the most of his short time on stage as Colonel Starling: young, brash and full of self-importance, thinking he knows more than everyone else. The play, written in 1995, is amazingly current. Ford wants to be president he believes that his experience in business qualifies him to run a country. Hes accused of trying to buy the presidency. And as for Harding, well, the rumor that he has a black ancestor and is therefore part-Negro continues to haunt him, even though he vehemently denies it. One accuses the other of being dictated to by Wall Street. The three clash and spar throughout the night, though there are moments of levity and insight as well. (One of my favorite moments was when Ford and Harding dance to music playing on Edisons phonograph.) Camping With Henry & Tom is presented in the round in this theater that now seats 120. Set designer Richard Crowell had to provide a forest scene that wouldnt block our views. In addition to a dirt-and-rock stage in the middle, hes created a forest silhouette on the four walls of the theater. It feels as if were enveloped in the space itself, somehow right in the woods with the three great men themselves. And director Robert Cacioppos staging is inventive, as the three actors make the most of the space, at times stepping past the audience. (David M. Uptons lighting makes us feel as if were in a darkening forest, and Kate Smiths subtle sound effects of chirping crickets and hooting owls adds to the effect.) Roberta Malcolms costuming and hairstyles are true to the period 1921. And the Model T, created in Florida Reps prop shop, can pass for the real thing. Camping With Henry & Tom is intriguing and exhilarating, a first-rate night at the theater. Its a grand way to begin performances in the newly renovated studio theater. If its any indication of what is to come, I can say with certainty that ArtStage Studio Theatre is a space where theater magic happens. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com DAVID DACK MAKI / SNAP FLASH PHOTO / COURTESY PHOTOSPeter Thomasson, Graham Smith and Ed Pilkington star in Camping with Henry & Tom.

Though the last film in the franchise, Quantum Of Solace (2008), was a disappointment, Bond is back on solid ground in Skyfall, a top-notch action pic that reminds us how much fun a Bond movie can be. That said, its not perfect at 143 minutes, its easily 20 minutes too long, and its a mistake to wait 70 minutes before we get Javier Bardems deliciously nasty villain. Still, much of Skyfall works because the story is smart and tense. After Bond (Daniel Craig) and fellow secret agent Eve (Naomie Harris) fail to retrieve a list of undercover agents from an assassin named Patrice (Ola Rapace), the new head of British intelligence, Mallory (Ralph Fiennes), asks M (Judi Dench) to retire. Then theres a lull for a half hour as Bond trains to be reinstated, after which M sends him to Shanghai, where he eyes hottie Bond girl Severine (Berenice Marlohe). Bond follows Severine to Macau, where she leads him to Silva (Bardem), a cyberterrorist who has a long history with M. All of this takes far too long to happen, but the wait is worth it, as the second half of director Sam Mendes (American Beauty) film has very few flaws. And why wouldnt you get to Bardem sooner? Hes one of the finest actors working today, and the last time he played a villain (No Country for Old Men), he won an Oscar. Here he plays one of the juiciest Bond villains in recent memory; note the creepy sounds he makes, and how he gazes into Craigs eyes during their first scene together. There are homoerotic overtones, and its not a mistake. Mendes, heretofore a director of dramas, handles the action well enough, and he benefits from a smart script thats full of Bond-isms loyal franchise fans will appreciate. We also get the return of Q (Ben Whishaw) and other characters and traditions weve been waiting for since the franchise restarted with Casino Royale in 2006. If youre one of those people who complain about the ridiculousness of Bond movies, go away. This isnt real life, and its not trying to be. So during the opening sequence when the bad guy, atop a train, shoots at Bond while Bond sits inside a train-bound excavator, we shouldnt be surprised when the bad guy decides to turn and run just as Bond exposes himself for an open shot. Thats what happens in these movies, and its what makes them fun. Ive said it before and Ill say it again: The appeal of Bond is that hes pure male fantasy women want him and men want to be him. Especially when he has the radiant blue eyes and the handsomeness of Daniel Craig. When I interviewed Craig four years ago as Quantum was released, he said he was excited about the future of the series because theyd earned the right to bring back the things Bond fans know and love. With Skyfall, they have succeeded. LATEST FILMSSkyfall c w w c B l danHUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Though he had no right to do so, Daniel Craig offered Sam Mendes the directing job while at a party in New York City.

Rated PG.Flight (Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, Kelly Reilly) After saving nearly 100 passengers from certain death in a plane crash, pilot Whip Whitaker (Washington) comes under scrutiny for drinking and doing drugs prior to the flight. This is a great character study of an alcoholic and how he copes with intense pressure that will define the rest of his life. Washingtons performance is fantastic, and director Robert Zemeckis storytelling is even better. Rated R. CAPSULES

Atria Books/Simon & Schuster. 278 pages. $15 trade paper.One can feel the immense joy of Amy Hill Hearths engagement in her first novel. It radiates through every scene and through every page. Sometimes, an exceptional writer finds an exceptional premise, and the result is a truly exceptional book. Such is the case with Miss Dreamsville. Inspired and inspiring, it is already a top pick of many literary groups and is sure to be an immense hit at book clubs, as was Ms. Hearths first book, the nonfiction bestseller Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters First 100 Years. Her first novel is set in Naples, Fla., circa 1962-63. This was a time of small town claustrophobia for those women who were feeling the winds of cultural change but had been habituated to a narrow conformity. To be divorced, like the narrating character Dora Witherspoon, who works in the post office, is to live in exile. Divorce is disgrace. To be suspiciously single, like Miss Lansbury the librarian, isnt much better. To be a young, highly literate black woman in the still-segregated South, like Priscilla Harmon, is to be a misplaced person. And to be a reluctant, outspoken Yankee transplant, like Jackie Hart, is bound to make you the subject of gossip and scorn. To be a released murder convict, like Bailey White, does not win you friends. And to be a reclusive, middleaged poet carrying the moniker Plain Jane puts you out of the mainstream. Finally, to be an obvious, though closeted gay man, like Robbie-Lee Simpson, who runs the Sears catalogue store, is well, you know. Jackie, a restless and bored mother of three whose husband is always away on business trips, sets the literary society idea in motion and is its guiding force. As this magnificent seven tentatively begins its exploration of books, what the members really explore is one another. Secrets are revealed. Empathy and understanding flourish. Bonds are created. There is a great mystery demanding the towns attention. It is neither the Cuban Missile Crisis nor the testing of a young Catholic (!!!) president. It is not the burning of a local Negro church by hooded figures. Rather, it w e p t w l philJASONpkjason@comcast.net F LORID A W RITE R S

Who is that woman with the sexy voice on late-night radio? Pretty much left to themselves, the members (we cant say the women, because RobbieLee has been allowed to join) of the Collier County Womens Literary Society make some splendid, sometimes daring, selections for discussion. One is the old favorite, Little Women. Another is a title by Priscillas favorite, Zora Neale Hurston. The group also reads Rachel Carsons Silent Spring, Truman Capotes Breakfast at Tiffanys and the notorious The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan. The meetings anchor the members lives, and the discussions open up their hearts while enlarging the novels scope to the world of ideas about race, gender and identity on many levels. For all of its authenticity about life in a small, Southern town in the early 1960s, Miss Dreamsville doesnt meet the usual genre expectations of an historical novel. It is less about history and more about friendship, tolerance and the tipping point between stasis and change. The writing is brilliant, especially the dialogue through which the characters are defined. The humor is at once gentle and uproarious. The contrast between the self-effacing Dora and the flamboyantly expressive Jackie frames a range of masterfully etched individuals. In their intimate friendships, these seven people find the sense of home that had eluded them. Literature can do that for you.

How she manages this deceit, and how her alter ego captivates the town, is among the books many pleasures. The culminating scene, when her identity is revealed at the annual Swamp Buggy Festival, is simply glorious. I more than merely admire this book. I love it. You will, too.A conversation with the authorPhil Jason: Tell me a bit about your personal experiences with Naples. Amy Hill Hearth: My husband grew up in Naples. He is a 1968 graduate of Naples High School. The character Judd in my novel is based loosely on my husband, Blair Hearth, when Blair was 12 years old. The lead character, Jackie, was inspired by my late mother-in-law. The family moved from Boston to Naples in 1962. By the time I met Blair in 1983, his parents had moved to Atlanta, so there was no Naples home for him to return to. We visited Naples anyway, so he could show me the place he considered his hometown. I am still amazed at the disconnect between my husbands stories about the Naples of the 1960s and the new Naples. Florida, of course, has changed enormously in the last 50 years, but Naples, according to Blair, is almost unrecognizable. The changes seem more pronounced than in the Tampa Bay area where my family has roots (and where 10 members of my family live). I met Blair when I was a reporter at the Daytona Beach News-Journal. We were married in 1985 and around that time we visited Naples together for the first time. By then, it had changed so much already that Blair hardly knew his way around. One of his few points of reference was the Dairy Queen. PJ: Is the fictional literary group based on a real one?DREAMSVILLEFrom page 17

What WAS real is Miss Dreamsville. My mother-in-law really did start a radio show on WNOG by that name, and her identity was a secret, just as it is in the book. PJ: Was this novel a project long in the planning? AHH: It was very spontaneous and unplanned. I had decided to take a break from the intensity of publishing. I remember telling my mom, Im going to write just for fun for awhile. So I cleared off my desk and started writing. In the back of my mind, Id always been interested in my late mother-in-law as someone who was, shall we say, a character. She was a Boston beauty, very intelligent and rather restless, and I knew shed had a very difficult time relocating to Collier County circa 1962. Im fascinated by the tensions and misunderstandings between Northerners and Southerners. I had that experience myself as a child. My family moved from Schenectady, N.Y., to Columbia, S.C., in 1965, when I was 6 years old. Of course, since I was a child, I was able to adapt very quickly. Within a week, I had a Southern accent and I was accepted. Its a little harder for adults, especially people like my mother-in-law, who was opinionated and outspoken, which rubs Southerners the wrong way. I really wanted to explore that, and so I began working on what I thought was, perhaps, a short story. I fell in love with my characters, however, and just kept on writing. I never set out to write a novel. In fact, this is my first attempt at fiction writing. PJ: What part of the preparation or writing process did/do you enjoy the most? AHH: When I lived in Florida (1980-1985), I saw a culture that was vanishing. As editor of the University of Tampa student newspaper and then as a reporter in Daytona Beach, I interviewed many old-time Florida folks for many different types of stories. All of these people have died, but I remember their stories, humor and insight. I also remember the characters I encountered as a child in South Carolina during the 1960s. Writing this novel gave me an opportunity to relive those years and experiences. PJ: What did you have the most trouble with? AHH: Making the transition from nonfiction to fiction is challenging. I had to give myself permission to stray from the facts. At first it was very difficult, but eventually I found it quite liberating. Another challenge was that my husband is a primary source for my book. There were times when I felt it was a little unfair for me to keep asking him questions. I felt as if I stole large chunks of his childhood. Hes a good sport, however, and once he got used to the idea, he became the novels biggest fan.

In the early 19th century, the turkey was a wild one, probably killed by a member of the community. If a time machine could bring someone from that era to our Thanksgiving dinner today, there would be very little inside or outside the house that has not changed. Food, communication, transportation, their contents and even toys might now be too complicated and look unfamiliar. Even dolls have been modernized. Dolls today walk, talk, dance, answer questions, have washable hair and realistic skin, and seem almost alive thanks to batteries or electronics. But sometimes our ancestors created amazing dolls with limited tools but clever ideas. A doll made in the 19th century could also walk, but by a very unusual method. The dolls body was carved of wood with moveable jointed arms and a swivel head mounted on a dowel. Eight legs with feet wearing shoes were arranged like spokes on a wheel. The fashionable doll dress of the day was long enough to cover most of the dolls legs. Only two of the feet would show as a child walked the doll across the floor by making the wheel of legs turn. A rare doll like this sells for thousands of dollars today. There are very few still to be found. Q: I have a set of four modern fully upholstered tulip chairs that are about 25 years old. I would like your help in establishing their value and maker. The only mark other than some numbers is a Made in France label. A: The famous tulip chair was designed in 195556 by Eero Saarinen, a Finnish-American designer and architect. The chair has been in production ever since it was introduced, and its only licensed manufacturer has been Knoll Inc., now based in East Greenville, Pa. Knockoffs have been made all over the world, though, and your chairs are probably among those unauthorized copies. They would not sell for as much as Knolls authentic tulip chairs. Q: My family has owned an interesting tape measure for at least 75 years, since when I was a child. Its a porcelain mans head with a little porcelain fly on his forehead. The mans face is bright white. One of his eyes is closed and the other one is open and blue. His cheeks are painted light pink, his lips are red and the fly is black with red eyes. Pulling on the fly extends the narrow cloth tape measure from the mans head. The head is 2 inches tall. Can you tell me anything about it?

The wheel of legs turns if the doll is pushed across the floor. This doll, 20 inches tall, sold for $8,500 at a Theriaults auction in July 2012. introduced in about 1875, and figural measures in all kinds of shapes and materials have been made ever since. The tape was fabric on early models and metal on later ones. Most figural measures like yours date from the late 1800s into the 1930s. They are popular collectibles, especially among people who hunt for antique and vintage sewing implements. Your measure could sell for more than $50. Q: Im trying to find out the value of my early-1900s Piedmont cedar chest. A: The Piedmont Red Cedar Chest Co. was located in Statesville, N.C. The company sold its cedar chests through catalogs, not in stores. The chests were made of solid red cedar from North Carolina and Tennessee. The company was in business until at least the late-1920s. Cedar chests are not very decorative but they are useful. If in good condition, they sell for about the same price as new cedar chests: $200 to $300. Q: My great-great-grandmothers two pieces of pressed glass now belong to me. One is a cover ed butt er dish and the other an open sugar bowl. I know the pattern is Bulls-Eye and Daisy, and the bulls-eyes are ruby-stained. Can you tell me who made it? Im looking for the cream pitcher to match. How can I find it? A: Bulls-Eye and Daisy was made in 1909-10 at the U.S. Glass Co.s factory in Glassport, Pa. The pattern originally was called Newport and also is sometimes called Bulls-Eye and Daisies. It was made not only in clear glass with rubystained bulls-eyes, like yours, but also in clear glass and clear with green or amethyst bullseyes. Some pieces were also trimmed in gold. To find a matching creamer, shop online or contact a matching service like Replacements.com. The creamer with ruby stain should cost you about $45. Your butt er is valued at $100, and your sugar at $70. Tip: Be sure to rinse fabrics until all soap residue is gone. Soap in the textile will scorch when you iron.

VINO Time for a toast to the many reasons we give thanksThis is the time of year when people traditionally count their blessings and give thanks for those things that bring joy into their lives: spending time with family and other loved ones, the opportunities we have in life, that weve once again emerged unscathed from hurricane season and in my case at least that I can live in our home surrounded (literally) by our pets. My list of things to be grateful for also includes, not surprisingly, some awfully good wines Ive been fortunate enough to enjoy. These are pretty much my goto wines when I want maximum enjoyment balanced by a reasonable price. Now you can enjoy them, too.Some of my favorites: Argyle Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2011 ($25): This lighter styled pinot opens with cherry and watermelon aromas and flavors with a hint of citrus spice at the finish. Medium in color and lighter in body, this wine can be enjoyed with a meal or simply by itself. Serve chilled, but not as cold as a white wine for the best flavor experience. Bodegas Alto Moncayo Moncayo 2009 ($45): Inky purple in color, this rich grenache from Spain, produced from older vines, is full-bodied and richly extracted. Mid-priced of three grenache offerings from Bodegas Alto Moncayo, it opens with floral notes mixed with black cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors, layered in intensity. Long and supple, it finishes long and balanced with a touch of spice. Chateau dEsclans Ros Whispering Angel 2011 ($20): I keep coming back to this wine when I look for a ros. Made in the Cotes de Provence in southern France by Sacha Lichine, son of the late noted author and winemaker Alexis Lichine, he left his family business in Bordeaux (Chateau PrieurLichine in Margaux) to make an exquisite line of ross. Whispering Angel is the entry-level offering, a blend of grenache and other Rhone grape varieties. Pale pink or salmon in color with fresh clean fruit aromas and flavors of strawberry, this dry wine has good texture and layers of flavor leading to a medium finish. It wot stay long in your glass! Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2011 ($25): This wine exemplifies for me what a very good sauvignon blanc from New Zealand should be. Light and racy in aroma and on the palate, its full of complex flavors of white peach, citrus and melon with a lingering crisp finish. Paco and Lola Albarino 2010 ($20): The color of light straw, this wine has clean, bright, intense aromas and flavors of pear and green apple with a citrus tinge. On the palate some tropical fruit flavors of mango and pineapple emerge, leading to the silky long finish. I have come to appreciate albarino from the Rias Baixas district of Spain because it is so refreshing and thirst quenching, and this is one of the best. The wine is perfect with seafood. It comes from a district along the coast in the Galicia region of northwest Spain, due north of Portugal. Rombauer Chardonnay Carneros 2010 ($35): When I want to drink an impressive yet not-too-expensive chardonnay, I reach for this one from the Carneros district in California. Very consistent in quality and flavor from vintage to vintage, it has a lovely golden straw color and is medium in body. Fragrant aromas of peach, white flowers and citrus merge into the palate along with melon and pear flavors. Well-balanced acidity and a touch of oak bring some vanilla to the lingering buttery finish. Seghesio Sonoma County Zinfandel 2010 ($20): This winery was established in 1895 and makes several zinfandels (their top-selling varietal) as well as a smattering of other varieties. I like this wine because its smooth, wellbalanced and has the typical zinfandel bouquet and flavor profile: full-bodied, dry and fragrant with black cherry and strawberry notes in the aroma as well as the palate, finished in oak with a touch of pepper and spice on the lasting finish. This one is a great value, too. Two Hands Angels Share Shiraz 2010 ($40): This Australian winery offers several quality levels of wine, mostly shiraz-based. Flagship, single vineyard and garden series labels are all well made and perfectly enjoyable. I like the Angels Share from the Picture Series because of the value/quality ratio. Another richly extracted, deeply colored and fragrant wine with a big bouquet of plums, cherries and blackberries, leading to the polished round palate and a long spicy finish. The angels share refers to the evaporation from the barrel during maturation of the wine. Some winemakers and wine lovers say this is the price exacted by the angels for watching over the wine and ensuring its quality. t f r g M m a jimMcCRACKENvino@floridaweekly.com Bodegas Alto Moncayo Moncayo 2009

The building that previously, albeit briefly, housed the high-end French restaurant LEtoile now contains an unpretentious diner-style establishment called Patio Caf. LEtoile (French for the star) turned out to be of the shooting variety, flaming out in just six months. Gone are those candlelit dinners of foie gras, lobster bisque and coq au vin. The current owners have done a fine job of turning the place into an inexpensive caf serving breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. And while there were some glitches in our meal, its worth paying a visit for the buttermilk pancakes alone. I know many people think restaurant reviewers only eat expensive, exotic foods, but thats just not true, at least among the reviewers Ive met. Most of us are as happy to discover a great burger or breakfast joint as we are to extol the virtues of a fancy French establishment. There are times when everyone even those of us who dine professionally simply wants a basic meal cooked by someone else. Thats a niche I think Patio Caf fills well. The rather lengthy menu offers a variety of dishes, from omelettes and pancakes to salads and pasta bowls. Theres also a bar, although it was closed when we visited for lunch recently. The dining rooms pale yellow walls are adorned with just a smattering of art, and plenty of roomy booths are upholstered in a lovely floral fabric that complements the walls sunny hue. Theres also a good-sized patio on which customers can dine al fresco, weather permitting. It was windy the day of our visit, so we chose to eat indoors. The dining room was bustling, and it took a few minutes for someone to notice us standing in the doorway, but we were then seated promptly at one of the aforementioned booths. Breakfast and lunch were being served at the time of our visit, so there was a lot of ground to cover on the menus. My companion decided on breakfast; I opted for lunch. Omelettes come with house potatoes or grits as well as toast, but for an extra 69 cents, you can order two buttermilk pancakes in lieu of toast. My companion chose a Swisshroom omelette ($7.25), a three-egg omelette with Swiss cheese and mushrooms, along with potatoes and pancakes. The omelette was suitably fluffy, containing fresh mushrooms and ample cheese. Youd expect this to be a mildly flavored concoction given the ingredients, but some salt and pepper added to the eggs would have improved the finished product a great deal. Salt and pepper added prior to cooking make all the difference in certain dishes, chief among those eggs, grits and oatmeal. Its much harder to get the b alance right after the fact. The potatoes good-sized chunks that were properly cooked and seasoned with paprika and ground pepper were very good. But best of all were the pancakes two fluffy flapjacks with great flavor enhanced by the butt er that came with them. The only improvement would have been some authentic maple syrup rather than the maple-flavored corn syrup that has become the norm. From the lunch menu, we tried a pot roast platter ($7.49) with mashed potatoes and vegetables. The dish came with a sharp knife, which proved unnecessary because the meat was tender enough to cut with a fork. It tasted good even without the voluminous amount of gravy that covered it and the mound of mashed potatoes that accompanied it. The potatoes were also good and, like the meat, would have been fine with less gravy. In fact, were I to order this again, Id request the gravy be served on the side. The vegetables were the standard frozen mixed variety and were devoid of seasoning. Id lose these altogether and replace them with a couple of florets of steamed broccoli or another fresh vegetable. We finished the meal with a bowl of rice pudding ($1.99) that was garnished with a sprinkling of cinnamon and a generous dollop of whipped cream. Creamy and not too sweet, it was a solid finish to the meal. Service was pleasant, if a bit uneven. Our server had a number of tables throughout the room and there were lengthy periods when we didnt see her at all. The manager (or perhaps he was the owner) made frequent rounds through the room and checked on us early in our meal to make sure someone had taken our drink orders. All of the employees we encountered greeted us with smiles and made us feel welcome. The Patio Caf has only been open for a short time and my impression is that the aspects of our meal that werent quite right are likely to be worked out as the staff in both the front and back of the house gets into a regular rhythm. That generally takes a couple of months. Its clear that the management wants to make customers happy with a winning combination of low-priced meals and earnest hospitality. karenFELDMAN firstname.lastname@example.org >> Hours: 6 a.m.-10 p.m. daily >> Reservations: No >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Breakfast, $4.99-$8.49; lunch, $5.49-$8.49; dinner appetizers, $2.99-$4.99, sandwiches and entrees, $6.49-$13.99 >> Beverages: Full bar >> Seating: Booths and tables indoors, plus tables on outdoor patio >> Specialties of the house: Comfort fare and Greek dishes >> Volume: Low to moderate >> Parking: Free lotRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: Patio Caf10711 U.S. 41 N., Naples; 260-1075 Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor Rice pudding comes with a sprinkling of cinnamon and whipped cream.

Buttermilk pancakes, served on their own or as a side dish to eggs, are must-have breakfast items at Patio Cafe.
