On Friday, June 15, President Barack Obama announced an executive order allowing hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children to stay and work in the country without fear of deportation. Children of undocumented immigrants were given a two-year reprieve. On a Tuesday in July, several weeks later, paralegal Carmen Mederos says many Southwest Florida immigrant youths are still trying to figure out what this policy means. Ms. Mederos works through Soluciones (Solutions), a local nonprofit communityservice agency where she helps immigrants file legal forms, prepare tax returns, apply for employment and in general, assimilate. A plaque hanging outside her office door reads: Peace to all who enter here. Following President Obamas decree of deferred deportation, Ms. Mederos says her phone has not stopped ringing. More than anything, she hears college-age immigrants asking, Can I go to school now? She has to tell them, I dont know.

HUBERT LEE DR. KEVIN LAM DR. BRIAN TIMM For Themselves! NEW! www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2012 For me and mine, its a good grape year. The wild fruit now hangs in green clusters by the thousands, creating a free-form vineyard entwined with oaks and palmettos, with fences, with sheds and chicken coops with just about anything we own and manage minus clippers. Its a summery subtropical salute to the promise of autumn, when those grapes will ripen to sensual dynamite. To taste, theyre as sweet as a kiss, as sudden and sharp as a bee sting, as explosive as a volcano. We use them in meat dishes or salads. We make dessert tarts with them. We eat them off the vine or by the handful, each orb no bigger than a pea but as insistent as a purple parade: boom, boom, boom. They burst bright and vivid in the mouth, awakening the heart and mind. Wild grapes always remind me that we own the land of plenty. These are our grapes, and naturally we want to share them. Share them, not sell them, because all of us should taste the land of plenty, shouldnt we? Now in these languid days of July, Im not so sure. After a real parade of American flavor on Sanibel Island last week it was Sanibel but it could have been Marco Island or Boca Grande, Venice Beach or Palm Beach, the Space Coast or the Gold Coast my assumptions about sharing the land of plenty were brought up close. The parade was a beautiful thing on a sunny beautiful day, of course, presumably as ordered by the Chamber of Commerce. It was a day designed from one end of America to another for sharing and celebrating independence, itself a fruitful dream, a singular notion, embraced by all of us. Maybe my green grapes are a dream, too a fruitful dream clinging to a vine that will make fruition real, like an Independence Day parade clinging to a road that will someday lead there. But unlike my grapes, almost everything in the Sanibel parade was a billboard sales opportunity. Thats not how parades used to go or athletes, or stadiums, or public facilities, or anything else held to be part of the common cause. In the long passing line of small floats festooned with the red, white and blue of American Independence, I saw only one in which something real estate, jewelry, cars, gifts, food, politicians wasnt for sale. Instead, that float championed only an idea: the idea of world understanding, goodwill and peace, presented by the Rotary Club. Were those paraders just a bunch of lefties disguised in the beach clothes and suntans of the well-fed and wellto-do? Had they simply lost all interest in sending young people out to shoot somebody in defense of freedom, like in the good ol days (and the good new days and most other days)? Id come to find out. With my family, Id abandoned grapeland to visit Robert Hilliard, a writer and combat veteran of World War II for whom July 4 is a day to reflect and remember, not buy and sell. Mr. Hilliard lives on Sanibel, where we shared the parade together, along with food, drink and considered conversation. It all ended too quickly, but before July 5 rolled around, Mr. Hilliard had sent me a letter. I sat and read it that morning alone at my desk, overlooking a vista of live oaks marching away to thick woods adorned in the dreamy finery of wild grapes. Let me share it with you.Roger, What a pleasure (as always) to have you and Amy and the boys share another special day with us! Some random thoughts: A special day for whom? For everybody in America? On July 4th, small-town America is the same everywhere or tries to be, whether rich or poor. Or does it? People lining the sidewalks of Sanibel watching a parade wave and cheer and drink-in patriotism like the people in an economically and psychologically depressed town near Scranton. Or do they? Reverse the proposition. A similarity continues for all Americans: a barbecue in the back yard or in a municipal park. Or does it? Mimosas and martinis for some, Coke for others and for others? For some, a day of special relaxation. For some, a feast not to be duplicated until the next holiday celebration. For some the best celebration that money can buy. But for others in the land of the free the land that says it reaches out to the poor, the huddled masses of the world just another day hoping for a meal to stay alive, looking for a bed for the night other than the dirt of a park or the concrete of a sidewalk. For still others, many hard-working in America for years, the same day-today fearful caution walking or driving, afraid every waking moment that they will be wrenched from their American homes and family and sent back to a long-forgotten and now alien land. Ah, yes, Independence Day is for everybody in America. Or is it?

Just Drive!, a nationally recognized traffic crash prevention, education and awareness organization aimed at curbing distracted driving and promoting safe driving. Today, distracted driving is defined as any activity that takes your focus off the task of driving. While many of us dont give a second thought to driving with distractions, the science and statistics regarding these dangerous practices are shocking. Did you know: Sending or receiving a text takes a driver's eyes from the road for an average of 4.6 seconds, the equivalent at 55 mph of driving the length of an entire football field, blind.Last year, 3,092 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver.More than 1.6 million crashes are caused by cell phone use and texting each year.The biggest increase in smart phone usage is by adults age 35 and above. A recent study of 500 male and female drivers conducted by LeaseTrader.com provides some eye-opening results. The more experience people had behind the wheel, the worse their scores on the driving test. Drivers with more than 20 years experience scored nearly 18 percent lower than younger drivers. Ten sample questions found on written exams across the U.S. were answered by the studys participants. No one scored every question correctly, and more than three quarters answered four or more questions incorrectly. Yes, a failing grade. The BANG for your BUCK distracted driving summer campaign is a simple way to educate the public and prevent accidents. SAJD is asking everyone to contribute a buck only four quarters, 10 dimes or 20 nickels. Your $1 donation provides SAJD! valuable resources to continue local community outreach and education. Just one buck can go a long way. Since Jan. 17, SAJD! has delivered 47 presentations in nine high schools reaching nearly 1,500 drivers education students. Our groups comprehensive presentation uses statistics, studies, actual stories and visual effects to help drivers recognize how distractions reduce their safety. We reinforce the importance that drivers remain fully focused on the driving task at hand and be prepared for other drivers who are not. In the course of our work here at SAJD! people often tell us how attending one of our presentations has changed the way they drive. It means we are succeeding in our mission of actively and aggressively educating motor vehicle operators of all ages regarding the dangers of unsafe and distracted driving. This campaing, just launched a few weeks ago, has raised $1,022 to date from around the country; Florida: $670, Texas: $250, Maryland: $50, Tennessee: $50, Virginia: $2. Our goal is to raise a minimum of $100 a day. Moving statewide and spreading nationally, everyone can participate, making this a positive way to help us curb distracted driving. Family, friends and neighbors, organizations, agencies, school groups, restaurants, car dealers and other businesses can all come together to help. The possibilities are endless gated communities, businesses and civic groups can compete to see who raises more. One person who recruits five donors who each do the same can have a multiplier effect: 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 = $3,125. SAJD! has been educating the public regarding the dangers of distracted driving and promoting safe driving since 2006. Most people consider unsafe driving as a major personal threat to themselves and others, so its our goal to make our roads safer for all users by reaching every motorist at least once a day with our message: When you drive distracted, were all impacted.

OPINIONObamaCare: Its not over Plans havent yet begun for the monument to John Roberts on the National Mall. These things take time. Until the groundbreaking, liberals must content themselves with bestowing national sainthood on Roberts and with declaring the health-care debate definitively over. Its time for everyone to accept a new $1 trillion entitlement profoundly affecting the direction of American health care and focus on issues of concern to every civic-minded American, such as: Did Mitt Romney outsource a call center as Massachusetts governor? ObamaCare has been declared over repeatedly and consistently. During the debate over its passage, it was always one more Obama speech from being settled once and for all. Afterward, Democrats predicted there was no way to repeal it, and its popularity was just around the corner. The court challenge was pooh-poohed as another instance of futile resistance. Now that the law has barely hung on thanks to the Roberts triple lutz, the state of the debate is said to be as ever over. If so, supporters have lost it in the arena of public opinion. Upon its passage, the New York Times/CBS poll found that it had 32 percent support. Before the Supreme Court decision, the New York Times/CBS poll found its support essentially unchanged at 34 percent. A different poll from Reuters/Ipsos found a majority, 52 percent, still disapproved of it in the immediate wake of headlines about the Supreme Courts blessing.The law has lacked popular legitimacy from the beginning, and is still struggling for it. Its major features are yet to be implemented. Republicans remain unified in their opposition and commitment to repeal. The cry that the debate is over is an attempt to short-circuit that very debate in a self-fulfilling prophecy. The law is hardly the picture of stability. States have been slow to set up the complex insurance exchanges as stipulated by the law. If they dont, the federal government will be hardpressed to set up the exchanges on its own. As amended by John Roberts, the law is more unstable. He gives states the option to refuse the laws Medicaid expansion. He weakens the individual mandate. Both of the Roberts changes mean the law may ultimately cover fewer people. How about all the wonders of the law? Doesnt it reduce the deficit? Only under optimistic Congressional Budget Office projections. Doesnt it keep young adults up to the age of 26 on their parents insurance plans? Most insurance companies will probably do this anyway. Its two central selling points, insuring millions more people and keeping people with pre-existing conditions from getting locked out of insurance, can be addressed with policies that are cheaper and less disruptive (a tax credit for purchase of insurance and high-risk pools, respectively). When they set out to pass healthcare reform, Democrats could have built public support for a sweeping law, or scaled back their ambitions. They did neither. Their insistence that the debate is over is a function of their continued failure to win genuine acceptance of the law. Its still up in the air, even after the great John Roberts has spoken.

They perform Tuesday nights at Freddie Rebels, a place that could pass for a sports bar (inexpensive fare, multiple TVs) until the music starts and it morphs in to an excellent entertainment venue. Linda and I are Tuesday night regulars. In addition to Rick, who sings and plays amazing guitar, Mudbone consists of David Johnson (who recently was on tour in Japan with Aaron Neville) on bass guitar and vocals, Bill Peterson on drums and Mario Catman Infante on guitar and vocals. Its clear that these guys like each other and that they enjoy performing together. R&B is a style that calls for improvisation, and Mudbone makes it up brilliantly as they go along. The band is now concentrating on original music and plans to record its first CD in the near future. Tuesday evenings at Freddie Rebels is also jam night, when musicians show up with harmonicas, saxophones, guitars, drums, what have you, and Rick works them in to the sets throughout the evening. Some of my favorite dropins so far have been Guy Rienzi on guitar, Jerry Fierro on blues harp and singers Angi Siti, Kim Page, Lisa George and Sarah Hadeka. With talents ranging from amateur to semi-pro to world-class seasoned pro, they all come for the same reasons: to learn, to network and to have fun. Rick grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y., the son of two artists. His mom played folk music and taught him chords on a guitar when he was 6 years old. The family always enjoyed music, and Rick recalls listening to albums as diverse as early rock n roll, big band swing, Pete Seeger, Odetta, Miles Davis, Cal Tjader and Lambert, Hendricks and Ross. Consequently, Rick developed eclectic tastes and talents in music. Hes been entertaining for 50 years, and although he enjoys playing all genres of music, jazz and blues are his favorites. Rick also plays old-school swing in the style of Mose Allison and Joe Williams with The Rick Howard Trio, with Mr. Peterson on drums and Don Mopsick on upright bass, during season at The Bay House restaurant and at private events. And he and his wife, Lisa, perform at clubs and private events as a duo called Made in Brooklyn. Im truly blessed to be playing music with musicians of this caliber that are also wonderful people, Rick says about his bandmates. Were like family.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2012 transformative. The intense concentration that children require and how truly exhausting it is: thats one thing that no one has ever told me, let alone my good friends that are supposed to have my back, he partially jokes, describing days filled with feeding, changing diapers and amusing an infant with dangly ornaments; but most of all keeping a vigilant watch every second. His wife, Hollie, after a short leave from work, stayed on as a clothing designer for Chicos. After shed get home in the evenings, and Logan was put to bed, theyd get a chance to doze off themselves. We fall asleep in the weirdest positions, on the floor, my head propped up on a ball, just completely exhausted, Mr. Horkey said. And Im a really intense person but I was just exhausted. Mr. Horkey, 36, admits his expectations of fatherhood didnt much exist until it happened. With his colorful tattoos, square-jawed good looks and a sizeable ring imbedded in one earlobe, he cuts the figure of a young, mod husband an outgoing and career-driven fashion designer until recently. Its actually been quite a roller coaster, he said of the last year. We moved from Seattle to Florida, and we found out we were pregnant shortly after we arrived. We bought our first house, had our first child. And making the adjustment from professional life to family life has probably been the hardest part. Now hes gone back to work, filling window displays and dressing mannequins as part of the visual display team at Nordstroms at the Waterside Shops in Naples, while Logan attends a Montessori pre-school. But his wifes fulltime job and his contract-work status initially made it a more logical decision for him to be the one to stay home. Its an option made more attractive for an increasing number of men for various reasons, including shifting attitudes about gender roles. Women also graduate from schools with advanced diplomas more often than men, the U.S. Census Bureau reported in April 2011. About 1.5 million more women than men age 25 or older held bachelors degrees, and slightly more women than men held advanced degrees. But men say they are choosing life on the homefront for their own reasons as well. Called homeStephen Hayford decided to play a greater role in his childrens lives after a brush with mortality in 2006, but it took him two more years to walk away from a steady paycheck. This is all related to a second chance at life, said the Cape Coral resident whose wife, Pamela, is editor of Southwest Florida Parent & Child Magazine. After heart surgery in 2006, Mr. Hayford tentatively stayed on as a photographer with The NewsPress, but recognized a solution a few years later in Kenya when he went there to cover the opening of an orphanage. I saw all these people who had no money and they were happy, said Mr. Hayford, who is 40. And I realized my issues with not having a steady paycheck were because of my frame of reference and there must be a way to work around it. Since then he has happily assumed a daytime presence in the lives of his children Riley, 7, and Logan, 10, while pursuing a career as an artist making, for instance, action figure dioramas. He also teaches a course in photojournalism at Florida Gulf Coast University. Mr. Hayford cooks most of the familys meals as well. Being an artist, I think Im more compelled to experiment (with food), he said. I look at what we have in the cabinet for seasonings. Id say that I get creative with it but I dont follow recipes. It seems to be working out. At least there are no complaints from his son. He doesnt really cook anything I dont like, said Logan. Steve Pawloski, 38, is a Sarasotabased artist who brings his sea-glass inspired jewelry to outdoor festivals in Punta Gorda and throughout the state. He stays home on Tuesdays and Thursdays to watch his 14-month-old son Mason. Being his own boss and a desire to have one-on-one time with Mason led to that. So Im not too productive when Im watching my son, admits Mr. Pawloski, whose wife, Rachael, is a schoolteacher, but I at least enjoy spending some time with him. Its actually pretty cool I have to say. Mr. Pawloskis parents, who were traditional in their roles as he grew up, dont find his lifestyle odd. Theyre more for the situation that we have now than having my son in day care full time, he said. Thats for sure. Theyre both in education. My father is now a college professor and my mother a retired schoolteacher so I think they value the kind of quality of education parents can give as opposed to a day care. Even if theres six teachers and two kids its nowhere near oneon-one.Leave it to Beaver no longerThere are only about 176,000 stayat-home dads in the U.S., according to the U.S. Census definition of men who dont work, are not looking for work, and their spouse works a very clear cut breadwinner-househusband model that doesnt reflect the more blended public and personal lives of modern dads, said Al Watts, president of the National At-Home-Dad Network. He likes to say there are between 176,000 and 7 million fathers like him in the United States. The discrepancy is explained by how the U.S. Census tracks such men, which Mr. Watts said is based on a mid-20th century model, something like in the old black-andwhite TV show, Leave It To Beaver. Such clear-cut roles seem beyond quaint, even alien, in contrast with the lives of five dads interviewed for this article, who share duties with spouses, whether they are full-time househusbands or work-at-home fathers. From the time our son was born we knew we were not going to be the quintessential archaic couple where certain duties were assigned to sex, said artist Mr. Hayford. We were absolutely equal partners in changing diapers and cleaning up vomit and everything else. And that never changed it just became me doing more of it, simply because of access. More accurately, the U.S. Census reports a sharp increase in fathers who are primary caregivers for children under 15. Thirty-two percent of fathers were a regular source for childcare in 2011 up from 26 percent in 2002. That may represent closer to 2 million men, Mr. Watts said. And among these fathers with preschool-age children, one in five was the primary caregiver, meaning their child spent more time in their care than any other type of arrangement. These statistics dont include gay men or single dads. While some assumed the recession created more stay-at-home dads, it actually slowed what has been a longterm increase in that role for men, Mr. Watts said. As the economy brightens, he said, more men choose the role just because they can, and of course because their spouse has a good job. More and more men are saying I dont have to go out and get every dollar because my wife makes money, shes good at it, and I like to stay at home with the kids, its something I can do, he said. Nurturing masculinity Dads interviewed for this article found people responded to their status mostly in a positive way, often praising their choice, even if it was sometimes assumed that they were only filling in as Mr. Mom for a day. I get teased by my friends all the time about not working and being the wife, said veteran stay-at-home dad Shawn Holiday, a freelance writer who has also taught an acting class for youth at Lee County Alliance for the Arts since 2000. Its fine, no big deal. Most of them know the real story and theyre just teasing anyway. But a lot of people have the misconception Im just hanging around day after day.

SpecialistsInUrology .comHows your love life?The kids are gone. Now its our time. Testosterone Screening and Replacement Treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) Prostate Cancer Screening and Treatment Treatment of Enlarged Prostate Board Certied Urologists bravely on as a tired clich, a misguided yet kind-hearted testament to progress. For the most part, I dont think anyone bats an eye at a male being home with their kids fulltime anymore, said artist Mr. Hayford. I think thats an idea from the past. Women have helped men with those misconceptions by taking on non-traditional roles of their own. The increase in male homemakers is a trend nurtured by the womens movement over the last half century, explained sociologist Kris De Welde, Ph.D., an associate professor at Florida Gulf Coast University. That line between what we would call the private sphere and the public sphere has really blurred thanks to womens movements and feminism here in the U.S., said Ms. De Welde, who focuses on gender studies and teaches a course on family sociology. The gender expectations that we historically had for men are loosening in the sense that we as a society are more comfortable seeing men as primary caregivers and women as breadwinners. Those archetypal roles may be shattered by Ms. De Weldes sociological observations even while questions about what is masculine and what is feminine, in the realm of parenting, persist. We have these stereotypes of masculinity that quote-unquote real men are not nurturing, child-oriented parents, she said. And yet our experience is at least in the last couple of generations, and looking forward, weve seen men can be excellent parents, and can be very child nurturing. Biology seems to contradict that notion. Women give birth, after all, and produce milk to feed infants, two functions that might connect them to their offspring at least initially more than to men. That may not mean theyre better parents though. Instead, Ms. De Welde argues, the array of talents helpful in raising children could be as strong in a man as in a woman, or vice versa. There is some biological evidence that some hormones are released during breast feeding that help to bond a mother and a child, she said. But that doesnt necessarily translate to being a better parent. So Id say no, there is nothing biological that makes women better parents. Yet mens style of home-care may differ from a womans. Fathers take a lot less crap, Mr. Holiday said succinctly. I think dads have less tolerance for nonsense and its not as nurturing, I give you that. He adds, I made tons of mistakes but I like to think I did it with some humor. His sins include: Snapping wet towels. Losing his patience. Providing disappointing dinners featuring broccoli. I like to think I have a vast wellspring of patience but we all have our limits, he said. And every time I raise my voice I regret it. Well not every time. Most times. Sociologist Ms. De Welde notes that shared child-care duties provide a model that future generations may follow to some extent. We have this alarmist discourse: if the mother isnt the one doing the nurturing and men bringing home the bacon then there is this maladjusted child who is confused about gender, she said. And I think the consequences of having both parents participating in child rearing at an equal level probably has positive long term consequences for those children, because they will grow up with broader expectations of what it means to be a man and what it means to be a woman. Mr. Holidays children are moving toward that point sl owly or all too fast, depending on your point of view. Recently he sent his son on a weeklong camp with the Boy Scouts and his daughter is officially a babysitter. Utterly defenseless infants they no longer are. Im kind of regretting not having an easy excuse to be late, stupid, broke or messy, Mr. Holiday said. COURTESY PHOTOPamela, Riley, Stephen and Logan Hayford.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2012 Culinary sleight of panDelivering gourmet meals to customers doors is a fast-growing business model, with chefs in nearly every large modern city trying to cash in. So far, perhaps only Londons brand-new Housebites goes the extra step. According to its press release, cited by Huffington Post in June, Housebites not only homedelivers restaurant quality cuisine (at the equivalent of about $15 to $20 per entry), but offers an optional dirty-pans service (about $8 extra), lending out the containers in which the food was prepared, thus allowing clients entertaining guests to display evidence of their culinary skills and hard work. Government in action The U.S. Department of Justice has been widely criticized f or failing to bring to fruition investigations of Wall Street traders alleged lies (such as accusations that the firm MFS Global made bets on European bonds by illegally using clients money, of which CEO Jon Corzine suspiciously professed to be unaware). However, in several notable instances, its investigators have been relentless for instance, prosecuting baseballs Roger Clemens for lying to Congress and, in January, indicting marine biologist Nancy Black, who faces 20 years in prison for allegedly lying to investigators about whether her crew might have illegally fed whales to attract their attention for a boatload of whale-watchers. The government office in Liverpool, England, that tak es applications f or benef its from disabled persons acknowledged in March that it needed to relocate. The offices parking garage is 13 stories high, but that still requires visitors to climb two more flights of stairs from that level to reach the offices. A Liverpool Council statement admitted that the office was not (in) the ideal location. Government grants for everybody In April, police chief John Crane of Gadsden, Ala., learned that his department has o wned, for two years, two unmanned aerial drones. He said he has no idea why they were purchased (at about $150,000), but that local taxpayers need not worry since they came with a federal law enforcement grant. NBC Bay Area reports periodically on uses of 2 009 f eder al stimulus money distributed in the San Francisco area, and in May revealed that the University of California, San Francisco, had received $1.2 million to interview 200 men on what effect being overweight has on their sex lives. A government budget activist decried funding a sex study over fixing bridges and roads that are crumbling every day. There are not enough video games, ac c or ding to the National Endowment for the Arts, which in April awarded a $40,000 grant to the University of Southern California to help produce another, based on Henry David Thoreaus Walden. Australias Council for the Arts announc ed in Ma y that it w ould give A$20,000 (U.S. equivalent, $20,380) to the death-metal band Ouroboros, citing the bands distinct genre and its need for a symphony orchestra for its next album. Said the drummer, We wouldnt consider hiring an orchestra to do this without (the grant). Great art! In May, performance artist Stuart Ringholt opened his show, at the Museum of C ontemporary Art Australia, naked. His pieces (a hodge-podge of exhibits on current art-world commentaries) were secondary to his insistence that all visitors to the show also shuck their clothing. His subtext, he said, was to explore reactions to extreme embarrassment (and told a New York Times correspondent that in an earlier selfshaming display, he had stood by a marble fountain for 20 minutes, dressed formally but with toilet paper trailing from his trousers). According to a Times dispatch from Sydney, Mr. Ringholt was joined by 48 nude-yet-nonplussed patrons 32 men and 16 women. Londons Hayward Gallery staged an e xhibition in J une of in visible art pieces that depend almost completely on the imaginations of viewers. For example, 000 Hours of Staring by Tom Friedman is a blank piece of paper that Friedman eyeballed off and on over five years before deciding that the object was finished and displayready. Mr. Friedman also submitted an empty section of floor space, which he said was once cursed by a witch. Also there: an Andy Warhol bare platform that looks like it should have something resting on it, but doesnt, and, by Yoko Ono, a typed set of instructions urging patrons to imagine some stuff. Police report Germanys Spiegel Online reported in April that police in Hamburg had charged a 33-year-old man with 96 burglaries based in part on the ear prints he left at each scene when he leaned against a front door to detect whether anyone was home. DNA and fingerprints were also collected, said a police source, but earprints are of similar value as fingerprints in terms of evidence. Kalvin Hulvey, 35, was charged with at t empt ed auto theft in Tulsa, Okla., in June after jumping into Jeremy Pennys van and fleeing. Mr. Penny and his dad took up the chase and caught Mr. Hulvey. Said Mr. Penny later, I rodeo. (Dad and I) both rodeo. When police arrived, Hulvey had been neatly hog-tied and secured to a fence. Explained Penny, (L) ately, Ive been having bad luck keeping calves tied (in rodeos), so (Dad) did the tying up. NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

A small contingent of women ages 40 to 80, known as the Miami Art Quilters, have interpreted many of those same landmarks in The Tamiami Trail, a collection of fiber art pieces on exhibit this month at the Marco Island Historical Museum. Normally, most people attending an exhibit of quilts expect to see the traditional patchwork quilts; but then they are usually very pleasantly surprised to see this new art form, says quilter Andrea Deda Maldonado. Fiber art or art quilting is a creative visual work that is layered and stitched, she adds. Among the art quilts on display are an interesting one of the tiny Ochopee Post Office and one of the walking dredge that was used in the construction of the Tamiami Trail. Another piece provides an incredible silhouette of an airboat in the swamps. Signage from the Trail is also depicted, as well as local flora and fauna, including both the anhinga and an alligator along with numerous bromeliads and mangoes. Six members of the Miami Art Quilters were on hand to meet visitors at the opening reception for the exhibit on Marco Island. In addition to Ms. Maldonado, the organizer for this exhibit, they were Barbara Stewart, Michaele Shapiro, Leslie Pope, Judy Millero and Bar Werner. Formed in 2006, the members met through traditional quilting guilds and were united in their sharing of art quilting techniques. Nearly all of the 17 members are transplants, with a few Miami natives. They come together to share and experiment with different techniques of fiber art and promote its awareness and appreciation. Several shared how their own involvement in fiber art quilting began. One said she started quilting with squares and patches that had been passed down from her grandmother. More than a few members of the guild have had their own one-woman shows or have exhibited with others over the years. The group has also compiled a striking coffee table book that includes images of all the pieces from The Tamiami Trail exhibit. Copies are available at www.miamiartquilters.com. Many of the pieces in the exhibit are for sale, but buyers will have to allow inclusion in the exhibit while it is touring. Following their successful exhibit at the Mancuso World Quilt Show in West Palm Beach in November of last year, the guild received several invitations to showcase this particular exhibit in several locations in Florida as well as Washington, D.C., and in Brazil. And, the members will return to the Mancuso World Quilt Show again this November. We asked several of the members to sum up their thoughts regarding this traveling exhibit. Heres what Bonnie Askowitz had to say: Having spent a lot of time on the Tamiami Trail as a kid growing up, I am thrilled to see the Trail and our art getting exposure as the exhibit travels. Arlene Goldberg told us she enjoyed seeing the quilts so beautifully displayed in such a lovely venue as the Marco Island Historical Museum. And Ms. Maldonado added: Not being from Miami, I got to know the Tamiami Trail through my studies about the road. I started with the Trail name, and when I found the Collier County Museum website, I fell in love with the history of the construction. It will be great to travel through other spots along the Trail with future exhibits. As my horse rider husband says, See you on the Trail!

Greater Marco Family YMCA lends helping hand SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYSummer can be a tough time for children whose families are scraping by financially. Their stomachs are often empty, their reading skills degrade and too much idle time can spell trouble. Seeing the need, the Greater Marco Family YMCA stepped out of its geographic zone. First, the Y raised funds and then set up summer school and after-school programs in high-need elementary schools, with occasional field trips to the Y and beyond. The programs have been growing and changing kids lives ever since. The results have been so positive that the Marco Y won the 2012 Florida Commissioner of Educations Business Recognition Award. This years award honors 79 Florida businesses only two in Collier County for showing an outstanding commitment to improving education by partnering with schools in their communities. The Marco Y received high marks for literacy and math components aligned with the Collier County Public Schools curriculum and helping hundreds of children get the extra support needed to be successful in school. Marcos YMCA READS! program was another factor in receiving the award. This public/private partnership between state government and Floridas YMCAs is an after-school program for struggling readers from low-income families. The program helps K-3 students become better readers and prevents later school failure by engaging community volunteers to work with students. Wine festival proceeds at work The funding for the Marco Ys programs for underprivileged and at-risk children comes chiefly from the Naples Children & Education Foundation, creators of the Naples Winter Wine Festival. Since 2007, NCEFs Marco Y grants have totaled nearly $1.1 million. Our foundations focus is on the whole child body, mind and spirit and the Y shares that philosophy, says Karen Scott, NCEF grant chair. We pushed for academics to be part of the summer curriculum as a condition of our grants, and the Y moved the needle from dodge ball and swimming to educationally enriched summer classes and experiences. According to Cindy Love, Greater Marco Family YMCA CEO, the outreach to neighboring families in need is about making sure kids are okay. She adds, For some families, its not about choosing to send their children to after-school programs, but choosing to put food on the table. To that end, Marco Y partners with organizations to distribute food and clothes to children in east and South Naples, and wherever else is needed. When a for-profit provider of after-school care for Parkside and Manatee schools pulled support this summer, the Y raised $20,000 and secured an NCEF grant for the rest. As a result, 550 children are enrolled this summer.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA18 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2012 Defining what the Affordable Care Act mean to NCHNow that the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the Affordable Care Act, we can begin to better define the requisites that will lead to the continued success of NCH as a thriving health care system. Those requisites were spelled out at a meeting I attended tht was sponsored by Truven (formerly Thomson Reuters Healthcare). Former Utah Gov. and Secretary of Health and Human Services Michael Leavitt offered his perspective on embracing seven core characteristics that will determine the best health care systems five years out. Those characteristics are: The capacity to improve the health of individuals and whole populations, not just repair shop health care. Systems must focus on wellness, prevention, instilling good habits in young people, addressing end-of-life care and other community health-promoting activities. Brand name recognition. Access to capital. Aggregating lives, relating to taking into consideration the needs of entire populations to improve health and wellness. Managing risk, especially in understanding that 5 percent of the population uses 50 percent of the health care, so we must provide value to these individuals, while also providing for others in need. A sufficient footprint in the community. A collaborative IQ embracing relationships with large multispecialty clinics and insurance companies to become strategic aggregators. Dr. Stephen Beeson, medical director of The Studer Group, added another important variable: Having a team of physicians aligned with the organizational efforts to ex ecute outcomes in quality, safety, cost-effectiveness, patient experience and evidence-based care. All of this has great relevance to NCH. For 12 years, we have been on a good journey with more than 600 physicians, 4,000 colleagues, and 1,200 volunteers to serve our community. We have broadened the perspective and reach of our two-hospital, 715-bed system, improving quality and thus adding value. Integral to this journey is adding new talent and expertise. We have done this again most recently with the H r M o t s i allenWEISSallen.email@example.com HEALTHY LIVINGMeat of the matterPush on for retailers to sell all antibiotic-free beef, pork, poultry SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYA majority of Americans want meat raised without antibiotics to be sold in their local supermarket, according to a new national poll conducted by Consumer Reports. The poll is part of a report released this month, Meat On Drugs: The Overuse of Antibiotics in Food Animals and What Supermarkets and Consumers Can Do to Stop It, available online at www. ConsumerReports.org. Consumers Union, the public policy and advocacy arm of Consumer Reports, has simultaneously launched a new marketplace campaign, urging supermarkets to sell only meat raised without antibiotics starting with Trader Joes, one of the leading national chains best poised to make this commitment. It also sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Agriculture asking it to tighten labeling standards for meat raised without antibiotics. Consumer Reports sent secret shoppers out to stores in the 13 largest supermarket chains around the country to see whether and to what degree those stores offer meat and poultry raised without antibiotics. We also conducted additional label research. The shoppers found wide differences among the stores from Whole Foods, where all meat and poultry sold is raised without antibiotics; to Sams Club, Food 4 Less, Food Lion and Save-A-Lot, where they could not locate such products at the stores visited. We are asking supermarkets to step up to the challenge and tell their suppliers to procure only meat and poultry that has been raised without antibiotics, said Jean Halloran, director of Food Policy Initiatives for Consumers Union. Antibiotics are losing their potency in people, leading to a major national health crisis, and we need to drastically reduce their use in food animals. We are calling on Trader Joes to be a leader and make this change now.Key findings Eighty-six percent of consumers polled indicated that meat raised without antibiotics should be available in their local supermarket. More than 60 percent of respondents stated that they would be willing to pay at least 5 cents a pound more for meat raised without antibiotics. More than a third (37 percent) would pay a dollar or more extra per pound. The majority of respondents (72 percent) were extremely or very concerned about the overuse of antibiotics in animal feed, including the potential to create superbugs that are immune or resistant to antibiotics. More than 60 percent were just as concerned with the overuse of antibiotics in animal feed allowing them to be raised in unsanitary and crowded conditions for livestock, human consumption of antibiotic residue, and environmental effects due to agricultural runoff containing antibiotics. Consumer Reports shoppers visited 136 supermarkets in 23 states, including at least five stores belonging to each of the 13 largest (by sales) supermarket chains in the nation, and collected data on more than 1,100 different no antibiotics meat and poultry items. The shoppers found wide geographic availability, and big differences among chains and stores in availability of meat and poultry raised without antibiotics. Whole Foods guarantees that all meat and poultry sold in its stores is never treated with antibiotics. Shoppers also found wide selections of meat and poultry raised without antibiotics at Giant, Hannaford, Shaws and Stop & Shop. Shoppers at Sams Club, Food 4 Less, Food Lion and Save-A-Lot stores, however, could not find any meat or poultry indicating they were raised without antibiotics. Meat and poultry raised without antibiotics does not have to be expensive. While prices of no antibiotics administered meat and poultry varied considerably depending on store, type of meat (beef, pork, chicken, turkey) and cut, in some cases our shoppers found prices that were actually lower than the national average for all of that type of meat. Chicken raised without antibiotics was available for as little as $1.29 a pound at several stores, including Trader Joes, Publix and Jewel-Osco.Label informationConsumer Reports shoppers found more than 20 different labels related to antibiotic use, such as never ever given antibiotics and humanely raised on family farms without antibiotics. Consumer Reports analyzed the labels, conducted additional label research and concluded that consumers can always rely on the organic label, which by definition means no antibiotics can ever be used. In addition, consumers can generally rely on labels that imply that no antibiotics were used especially if they are also USDA Process Verified (this means USDA has checked up on the producer). However, Consumer Reports identified a few labels that consumers should not rely upon as indicators that a product has truly had no antibiotics throughout the growing process. Labels such as antibiotic-free, no antibiotic residues, and no antibiotic growth promotants are not approved by USDA and should not appear in the marketplace. They could mislead consumers. Also misleading but USDA-approved is natural which can be confusing since it does not ensure that antibiotics were not used. Consumers who want to buy meat raised without antibiotics need a system they can rely on to feel secure that the labels on those products are meaningful and accurate. Our shoppers and research found several instances of labels that could mislead consumers to believe they were buying meat from animals that were not given antibiotics, when in fact that is not necessarily the case, said Dr. Urvashi Rangan, director, Consumer Safety and Sustainability at Consumer Reports. Consumers would benefit from one standard, meaningful, USDA-verified label that is consistent on all meat and poultry products from animals raised without antibiotics. In letter dated June 18, 2012, Consumer Reports called on the USDA to establish such a standard label and publish the names of the companies who are approved to use it, and for what products. It is asking that USDA also take action against labels that fall short of its definition.About the campaignThe campaign, Meat Without Drugs, includes a companion website, www.MeatWithoutDrugs.org, and features a new video in partnership with www.FixFood.org, a social media project of Food Inc. Director Robert Kenner, narrated by actor Bill Paxton, explaining the declining effectiveness of antibiotics. Some 80 percent of all antibiotics sold in the United States are used not on people, but on factory farm animals, to make them grow faster and to prevent disease in crowded and unsanitary conditions. This is creating superbugs on farms to which humans are being exposed and causing life-saving drugs to become less effective.Consumers Union believes that to preserve antibiotics for treatment of disease in people, use on animals must be drastically reduced or eliminated, and it has long urged the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Congress to ban the use of antibiotics in animal feed.Consumers, and the supermarkets they shop at, together can help solve the problem of antibiotic resistance that has eluded government regulators for more than four decades, said Ms. Halloran. We are urging consumers to say no to meat on drugs to help stop the superbugs.Trader Joes is a national retailer known for its commitment to sustainable purchasing practices, and, according to the report, one of the leading national supermarket chains offering much of its meat and poultry raised without antibiotics.Consumers Union is asking Trader Joes to take an important step toward safeguarding consumer and public health by ensuring that all the meat and poultry sold in its stores comes from animals that are raised without using antibiotics, said Ms. Halloran. Trader Joes has a history of taking important positions against selling products that may harm public health and the environment. One of the most important public health issues the nation faces today is the declining effectiveness of antibiotics in treating human disease. We hope they will help start a sea change in the marketplace. SEE HEALTH CARE, A19 For more information, go to www.MeatWithoutDrugs.org.

World Hepatitis Day: Why the world should Ask Am I Number 12?The fifth annual World Hepatitis Day will be observed on Saturday, July 28. World Hepatitis Day was launched in 2008 in response to the concern that chronic viral hepatitis lacks the level of awareness and political will that is seen in HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. This is despite the fact that the numbers chronically infected with, and annually killed by Hepatitis B and C viruses are on the same scale. The World Hepatitis Alliance and more than 200 patient groups around the world are asking Am I Number 12? (www.aminumber12.org) to increase awareness of the shocking statistic that one in 12 people on the planet is living with the Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C viruses, and yet the majority of those infected are unaware. For the past several years, Collier County has acquired more than 250 ne wly diagnosed Hepatitis C cases annually. An estimated total of 4,500-5,500 people are currently living with Hepatitis C in Collier County. Per the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, nationally, an estimated 4.1 million (1.6 percent) Americans have been infected with HCV, of whom 3.2 million are chronically infected. To celebrate World Hepatitis Day, on Wednesday and Thursday, July 18-19, the Collier County Health Department will be offering free hepatitis testing, HIV/STD testing and vaccines to those who qualify based on risk. Normally the three-series vaccine costs a total of $150. The Collier County Health Department HIV/Hepatitis Clinic hours are Wednesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Walkins will be accepted during this week. Call 252-8593 to make an appointment for Hepatitis or HIV/AIDS services needed on any other days. The Health Department is located at 3339 East Tamiami Trail, Naples.

American. exceptional.Stay calm. Stay peaceful.From his irresistible smile to his professional expertise. From his career as a big league pro athlete to his years of excellence with our company. Silverio brought warmth and grace to us all and we will miss him greatly.incessantly asking, Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Again and again, she has to tell them, No, sweetie, not yet. Again and again she has to tell them, This is not the Dream Act, a bill intended to help illegal youths attain their citizenship and further their education. Ms. Mederos must be clear. This is not amnesty, she says of the policy, not a path to citizenship or permanent residency, but a good step, a two-year relief and a hope. And although many illegal youths are confused about the details, Ms. Mederos says they are willing to give themselves up to the government. Though they do not yet know if the policy will help them go to college, they are willing to say, Here I am, for the chance. To clarify, Ms. Mederos says the policy applies to those who came into the country before the age of 16 and have lived here for at least five years; they must be high school graduates or currently in school; they must have clean criminal records and be no more than 30 years old. The policy, while not granting any permanent legal status, will allow these illegal immigrants to legally work no longer under the table, but out in the open. They will be able to obtain documents they have lacked, such as drivers licenses, and they will be protected from deportation for two years. Ms. Mederos estimates that the policy will affect at least 180 of her 5,000 clients, the majority of whom are local, ranging from Port Charlotte to Naples. Different as each of her cases may be, Ms. Mederos says they all share one thing the same. When a family comes into the country illegally and brings their children, the family breaks the law, she says. The children have nothing to do with it. It is not their fault. She recounts the story of a family from Colombia. When the mother and father moved here, their two daughters were 5 and 3 years old. The oldest daughter, now 25, married her American boyfriend, thus earning her U.S. citizenship. She was able to petition for her parents, granting them permanent residency. But the youngest daughter remains here illegally. Shes one of my brilliants, says Ms. Mederos. Upon graduating high school, the young woman applied for seven scholarships. She would have been awarded six, but she could not accept any. She was not accepted to any colleges because of her status. Ms. Mederos even wrote a letter to Edison State College saying the girls parents were willing to pay out-of-state tuition, but the school would not accept her as a student. She wanted to study medicine, Ms. Mederos says. Now shes sitting at a home, a brilliant child, her mind being wasted in front of TV. At present, confusion abounds among illegal students and universities, immigration agents and attorneys. Ms. Mederos says the confusion lies in the details though the policy was declared to be effective immediately, illegal youths are still awaiting the particulars of the application process. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said the department will begin accepting requests from immigrant students 60 days from June 15, the date of the presidents executive order. Once procedures and requirements are in place, administrators and officials will have a more clear understanding of exactly how the policy will be carried out. Though the deferred deportation policy may not put the young Colombian woman in a university, it will put her in the workforce, says Ms. Mederos, where she will be working and paying taxes, her mind not rusting. This brings Ms. Mederos to another one of her illegal youths sitting idle, a 17-yearold boy in the International Baccalaureate Program at Cape Coral High School. This young man has been invited to apply at Harvard, Yale and George Mason University. He would like to study bionuclear engineering. He knows he has the ability to excel, but wonders if he will be able to go. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology invited the young man to attend a six-week science camp. They revoked his invitation when they learned he was illegal. Ms. Mederos called the institute, beseeching, What is the harm in him attending? His parents are willing to pay. But the school said no, he could not attend, not unless he was a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. For all intents and purposes, Ms. Mederos says he is American. He was raised here, he volunteers in his community and hes active in his church. Looking for more words to describe him, she says, Hes, hes, hes she stops, she cries, He cannot go to school. She understands not rewarding illegal behavior, so she says go ahead, Secure the borders, but lets protect the ones already in. Lets let them prove themselves. And though the policy for deferred deportation may just be a work permit, may just be two years, she sees it as a chance.

MARTY BECKER & GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickBooks dont always sell in direct relationship to how much their authors love them. Sometimes thats for reasons outside of our control (such as the pet care book that came out just before Sept. 11, 2001), but theres often no reason for it at all. Two of our books, bowWOW!: Curiously Compelling Facts, True Tales, and Trivia Even Your Dog Wont Know and its feline companion, meowWOW! (HCI, 2007), remain our little, almostforgotten favorites: bright, fun and interesting, with illustrations by Molly Pearce so wonderful that we have them framed in our offices. We loved researching and writing these two books. Some fun facts we found: Dogs have been taxed for centuries, but the idea of a tag to signify that a dog was licensed seems to date to the late 19th century, when Cincinnati started issuing tags on an annual basis, and other cities and states soon followed suit. Although wooden tags for soldiers were used in the U.S. Civil War to help identify the injured and the dead, it wasnt until World War I that American soldiers got metal tags as standard issue. The resemblance between the tags of soldiers and of dogs (along with a good dollop of droll military humor) soon had the men calling them dog tags a term that sticks to this day. The cat has one up on the lion: Cats purr, but lions cannot. (On the flip side: Lions roar, which cats cant.) No big cat can get his motor running the way our household kitties can, purring constantly as effortlessly as breathing, both in and out. Tigers can rumble a tiger-sized purrlike sound, but on the exhale only. All dogs have pink tongues, with two notable exceptions: the chow chow and the Chinese shar-pei, both breeds with tongues variously described as purple, black or blue-black. Black spots on tongues are common in many dogs, and are not necessarily an indication that theres a chow chow or shar-pei in the gene pool, however. Most cats have five toes on their front paws, but only four of them hit the ground. The fifth toe is found on the inside of the front paw. This dewclaw is the feline equivalent of our thumb, and its used for grasping prey and climbing trees. Any number of toes over the norm (usually an extra one or two, but occasionally as many as three or four) makes a cat polydactyl, which means many fingers. Polydactylism is a dominant genetic trait, which means just one polydactyl parent is enough to make a litter of polydactyl kittens. Helen Keller, the blind and deaf woman whose triumph over her disabilities made her an international sensation, was the first American to own an akita. Cats can hear nearly three times more frequencies than humans can. For you technical types, a cats hearing stops at 80 kilohertz, a dogs at 45 kHz, and a humans at a pathetic 20 kHz. Because cats can rotate their ears and focus each ear independently, they also can hear well from all directions. A cat can rotate its outer ear to locate a sound such as the sound of a mouses footsteps trying to sneak by 10 times faster than a dog. The phrase Beware of dog is so old that its Latin equivalent cave canem has been found on signs in Roman ruins. The word watchdog isnt quite as old, but it has been around a long, long time. The first mention of it? By Shakespeare, in The Tempest. One final one, just for summer: The dog days of summer have nothing to do with dogs and everything to do with the brightest star in the night sky: Sirius, the constellation also known as the dog star thats highly visible during some of the hottest weeks of the year.

QUALITT RVICE www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2012 Numerous and significant bank issues have headlined news since the financial crisis began in 2007 and these issues continue through the present. U.S. citizens are well aware that U.S. banks have behaved very badly from underwriting subpar credit mortgage to pooling them into a securitized, superior credit rated pool to dumping such securitized pools into their clients portfolios (while they were shorting the same securities) to taking huge bonuses based on bank earnings inflated by this flawed and often fraudulent business model. Bottom line, it was wrong and unfair that the banks used government-guaranteed deposits as a basis for their speculation and that their flawed speculation required taxpayer bailouts while bankers still got their bonuses. What the bankers did was odiferous. It was a multi-step process and at each step, the bankers were promoting bad upon the public while richly compensating themselves. The most recent example of horrific banking practices comes from across the pond as the UK-based Barclays Bank has admitted that it manipulated, over a long period of time, an international inter-bank lending rate, LIBOR (Londons Inter Bank Offered Rate, the rate at which banks offer funds to each other). Barclays has agreed to pay a fine of some $453 million. LIBOR is hugely important as it is an interest rate index used in trillions of international loans. LIBOR is not a complicated calculation as it measures what it would cost a bank to borrow unsecured money. If banks are mucking-up the transparent and very important, they might well be distorting much else in their banking business. If the simple transactions are manipulated, then there are even more possibilities with the complex aspects of banking. The furor over banks powers is not unique to this new millennium. The debate about bank power raged for centuries. Yes, from long before the financial crisis of 2008, long before the savings and loan debacle of the late 1980s, long before the banking collapse in the Great Depression (1929-1930) and before the string of banking panics in 1907, 1893, 1873, 1857, 1836 and 1819. The debate about bank activities powers, leverage, use of deposits and regulations/regulators began immediately after the Revolutionary War. British colonies, such as we once were, could not establish their own banks. Only British (branch) banks were used. So, after the Revolutionary War, the founding fathers discussed the need for a national bank for deposit of government funds and for issuance of debt to finance the government. Not all Congressional leaders were in agreement about what type(s) of bank (federal or state chartered) should be created, who would regulate them and what types of borrowing activities would be allowed. The key proponents for banks were Alexander Hamilton and merchants. But there were various arguments against banks being made by by Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Martin Van Buren, farmers and other organizations. Fact was, post the Revolution, there was very little physical money in circulation. Transactions were done by barter or personal notes and the non-merchant classes felt that they would have a big disadvantage (lack of access to the power and financing) that the banks ultimately would wield. Specifically, Alexander Hamilton wanted to create a bank to act as intermediary for allocation of capital needed to rebuild the war torn country. His opponents argued that, by their very nature, the banks and those who controlled them would wield great power and in effect take away power from popularly elected government officials. Further, they argued that there was nothing specifically stated in the constitution to allow a national bank. Hamilton won the fierce debate: he won the approval of George Washington by arguing that while the Constitution was silent on the creation of banks, banking was critical to business expansion and the constitutional silence was not a prohibition. The First Bank of the United States was created in 1791; it was based in Philadelphia and had branches through the states. But with the strengthening hand of Jeffersonian thinkers in Congress, the banks charter was not renewed in 1811. (A short banking history of the US, John Steele Gordon, Wall Street Journal, Oct. 10, 2008) Therefore, lacking congressional support for a national bank, Hamilton went to the states, specifically New York State to get charters to open banks. And so began the powerful reign of New York Citys banks. Union bank began in 1811; Bank of America in 1812; City Bank in 1812 etc. These banks issued IOUs for deposits and these IOUs became a form of currency. Now, some 200 years later, the U.S. citizenry finds itself in much the same quandary: what is to be done about the banks that wield great power and certainly fill the coffers of senior bank executives. Unlike 200 years ago, when banks were allowed to fail, these banks are thought to be too big to fail. The TBTF issue will plague the U.S. until such time as it is no longer a threat, actual or perceived. The solution for the TBTF issue seems rather simple: Break up the banks so that the much smaller pieces can be allowed to fail. Because senior bank management has an incredibly sweet deal via stock options, salaries and bonuses based on billions that they control, there is huge incentive to keep the billions under one roof. Will a breakup of the big banks ever be congressionally mandated? For those really wanting to understand the nitty-gritty of this issue, a very good read is Will There Ever Be a Meaningful Volcker Rule?, June 7, 2012, New York Times. There is a groundswell of public support for a breakup of the big banks by both citizens on the left and right. Because there are very important bankers/political donors on both sides of the political spectrum, there will probably be hedged rhetoric by both Presidential candidates.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2012 the couple took about eight weeks and created a detailed business plan that changes the stakes completely pun intended (their steaks come from as close as Central Florida and as far away as Scotland). Theyre reaching for a new bigger market with aggressive thinking and planning, and investing heavily in their own bet. In other words, theyre doing exactly what the experts recommend for smallbusiness owners with a good product and untapped markets, struggling through summer downtimes. Theres an increasing awareness that during a downtime you need to look for alternate or ancillary sources of revenue, for alternate cash flows, and to look at your businesss core competencies, notes H. Shelton Weeks, chairman of the Department of Economics and Finance and Lucas Professor of Real Estate at Florida Gulf Coast University. But that can be good or bad if you get away from the core business you can put your resources at risk, he adds. A few years ago, points out Professor Weeks, a lot of small-business owners simply closed up shop and headed for the mountains each summer. The Christies thought about it, they admit they were tired after the tumult of six hard months keeping up with demand in a new and promising business. The strategy of escape and rest once the mark of the successful entrepreneur in summertime Southwest Florida is no longer cool, even in the mountains. So the Christies have been planning, hoop-jumping and permit-chasing, instead of vacationing. Mr. Christie is now a certified food safety manager listed in the National Registry of Food Safety Professionals, and Smoke Signals Meats now has USDA and FDA licenses to smoke meat, along with a mobile food vendor license. The Chrsties have also been spending money, or planning to. After hiring a Dutch expert who specializes in helping high-end meat sellers in Western Europe and the United States do it the right way (Henning Bolersleeve), and after finding a bank to provide a business loan (the Sanibel-Captiva Bank of the Islands), they put their money not where their mouths are, but where their sweat and effort are. Last week, they went out and bought something you wont find in the backyards of avocational meat smokers or grillers. Its not a Weber Genesis E-330, listed at $949. Its not a Saber Cast 500 P, or a Napolean Prestige P-500, or even a Vermont Castings 3-burner VC332EP (about $1,000). Instead, its the German-made Autotherm Universal Smoking Chamber, which is running the Christies about $65,000. And that, roughly, is what they will also pay for the refrigeration to go in their new specialty meats store, designed at about 3,500 square feet, which they plan to open in the fall in Lee County. We talked a lot about it, and we decided we got such a good response (the first year) we had to open a retail store to really make this work, Mr. Christie says. If the doors are easy to open, well continue this, notes Mrs. Christie. If theyre not, well see. Of course, they plan to add products smoked fish, and artisan cheeses made by an Italian woman in a cave in Tuscany, they say and they will continue to work the farmers markets from Marco Island and North Naples to Charlotte County.Bold cautionBusiness owners such as the Christies should proceed with bold caution a paradox, not a contradiction, suggests Douglas Nay, professor of management and chair of the Department of Business and Technology on the Charlotte County campus of Edison State College. Its often difficult for small business owners to make an extraordinary living, but the businesses with the most risks can have the most rewards, he explains, citing construction and food businesses in particular. So you do what makes you successful for example, you get new products before your competitors, which gives you first-mover advantages. Thats what the Christies have done. And you watch your expenses closely, particularly real estate costs the rent, adds Professor Nay, who spent 37 years as an international business consultant for Dun & Bradstreet before coming to Edison State. Many developers are trying to recover the cost for empty space by hijacking the cost for small retailers. Thats like the airlines charging heavily for tickets purchased a day or two in advance of the flight. It makes no sense because the planes are going, anyway but we wont go there.Minding the cash and stockAmong other advice business consultants and advisors offer are two seemingly obvious yet frequently ignored rules: first, watch your cash flow like a hawk. And second, dont buy more than you can sell (or less, either). The Christies learned the latter lesson last winter in the early weeks of their opening. Mr. Christie found himself driving to local food banks, where he would give away smoked bacon and pork chops, smoked ducks and the occasional smoked ham that hadnt sold. Soon, the customer demand caught up with him, and flew right past him, he recalls. So there will be great care in ordering for the new store, he says. You see people who put so much into their business, and theyve made a goal of it for so long, and they think cash flows are stable, and then they get the call somebodys not going to be able to pay them. And then suddenly theyre in trouble from a cash-flow standpoint, says Professor Weeks. That probability has increased, post recession. So financial flexibility is at a premium. Have a plan. The Christies do. Thats covered, Mr. Christie says. DOWN TIMEFrom page 1 FGCU Professor Shelton Weeks offers three basic concepts to bene t businesses during summers dormant days:>> 1. This is an opportunity to look at your businesss core competencies, and at the way youre doing things. Ask yourself, are you doing everything you can? Are you doing anything you dont need to be doing? >> 2. This is related to number one. Monitoring cash ow is vital. Whenever youre in a down economy, looking at your own but also the cash ow of customers can give you nancial exibility. Have a plan for the what if. What if you get one of those phone calls that come on a Friday, and he says, I know its Friday but I wont be able to pay you this afternoon youll have to give us another 30 days. If you have a plan, then you may be able to make payroll, or meet your other obligations. >> 3. The third rule comes in two parts. I tell folks to identify their key business relationships. I think of this as an internal as well as an external necessity. Internally, your employees are the key to your business. Make sure theyre not worried about whether your business will be here tomorrow if theyre concerned, they may be oating resumes. You never want to lose a key employee. But if you lose a key employee, such as a face person dealing with customers, for example, that can be damaging. So manage those relationships. Being open and as straightforward as you can is a very important part of that. And managing relationships with the people who hire you or pay you as a vendor managing external relationships, which is the second part of this is just as important. Prioritize those relationships. Maybe they need a hand held. And not just customers, but your own vendors. Make sure they will be there and delivering for you as well.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2012 BUSINESS B5 THE MOTLEY FOOL Bankruptcy 101Companies in or near bankruptcy may look like cant-lose investments due to their often very low prices, but theyre usually best avoided. A company typically files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection only when its having trouble paying its bills and has little choice. Under Chapter 11, it can continue to operate while it reorganizes. With any luck, it will get its act together and become stronger than before, as General Motors has done. If the company cannot generate enough capital to pay off its creditors, it will likely end up in Chapter 7 getting liquidated. In Chapter 11, the company remains in possession of its assets, under the administration of a court-appointed trustee. It must file a plan of reorganization with the bankruptcy court. If any creditors are to receive less than full value for their claims, they can vote on the matter. After the vote, the court can accept or reject the plan. Thus, the company has some flexibility, but if it deals too harshly with various creditors, its plan isnt likely to be approved. In most cases, the company will have to sell off assets to raise money to pay creditors. The proceeds usually wont be enough to pay all prioritized creditors in full, so creditors might accept a reduced amount of money, and/or some stock in the new, reorganized company. Meanwhile, holders of common stock in the company are not anywhere near the front of the line. Theyre behind debt holders, merchant creditors, trustees, employees, the IRS and even preferredstock shareholders, and their shares usually end up worthless. Even insiders stock stakes usually do. Some companies in Chapter 11 do emerge from it and survive (such as Western Union and Delta Airlines) but many dont (think Enron, Worldcom and Polaroid). And with those that do, its rare for shareholders to benefit. Some of those that survive, like Lehman Brothers, just end up in trouble again. Steer clear of companies in trouble. (Motley Fool newsletters have recommended General Motors and Western Union.). What Is This Thing Called The Motley Fool?Remember Shakespeare? Remember As You Like It? In Elizabethan days, Fools were the only people who could get away with telling the truth to the King or Queen. The Motley Fool tells the truth about investing, and hopes youll laugh all the way to the bank. Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & EnrichNo Revenue, EitherI read a short article in some publication about how White Smile Global was going to hit the $2 range within the next couple of weeks, when it was trading for roughly 90 cents per share. Like an idiot, I succumbed to my greed and bought in without really doing my homework. Well, the stock fell to less than 25 cents per share and has recently been around 50 cents. There seems to be something fishy here. S., onlineThe Fool Responds: Not doing your homework cost you a lot here. First off, know that penny stocks those trading for less than about $5 per share, tend to be extremely risky, offering hopes and promises instead of solid track records. They can be easily manipulated sometimes, too, by hypers and scammers. This tooth-whitening companys latest earnings report discusses many plans, but also notes, We have not generated any revenues since inception. Yikes! Companies without earnings are risky enough, but this one has no revenue, either. Why take such chances when there are healthy, growing companies out there that are undervalued? The Motley Fool TakeInvest With Warren BuffettWhen you hear Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-B), youll probably think Warren Buffett. Buffett is only one part of why Berkshire Hathaway might be a key component of your portfolio, though. At its core, Berkshire Hathaway is an insurance company, owning the geckofronted GEICO, as well as more specialized insurance operations. But its also a railroad operator, having bought BNSF. And its a chocolatier, with Sees Candies. Its also an energy utility, a paint company, an underwear manufacturer, a furniture seller, a modular-home builder, a fine-jewelry seller, a boot maker and much more. (Youll find a list of its subsidiaries at berkshirehathaway.com.) Its also an asset manager, with a massive stock portfolio that includes some big positions. Indeed, it owns 8.8 percent of the whole Coca-Cola company, 7.6 percent of Wells Fargo, 5.5 percent of IBM and 13 percent of American Express. (By the way, The Motley Fool owns shares of these companies and Berkshire Hathaway itself and/or has recommended them in its newsletters.) Despite all his stock holdings, Buffett greatly prefers to buy entire companies and let their talented managers keep running them, sending the cash they generate to Omaha, for him to invest elsewhere. Berkshire offers high-quality diversity with great long-term promise.

B.L., Hartford, Conn.AA company may employ such a strategy to avoid being taken over. In one version of it, shareholders (but not a would-be acquirer) are permitted to buy more shares of company stock at a discount. This dilutes the value of the stock, including those shares held by the acquirer, making a buyout more difficult and expensive to pull off. Another poison-pill tactic is to permit shareholders to buy the would-be acquirers stock at a discount in the event of a merger. Shareholders have sometimes protested poison pills because they dilute the voting power of shares and because sometimes a takeover would actually be good for the company and shareholders. Some companies with poison pill plans have gotten rid of them, as Time Warner did in 1991. ***QHow long must I keep financial records for tax purposes?

Retain stock trade confirmation receipts and statements for as long as you own the stock and for at least three years (ideally seven) after you close out your position (usually by selling). Keep proof of improvements to property for at least three years after the sale of the property. Keep escrow closing documents (for both the purchase and sale of property) for at least three years (again, ideally seven) after the property is sold.

The property is offered at $29.5 million and co-listed by Klaus Lang and Jennifer Calenda. The islands new owners will have the option to enjoy the property all to themselves or exercise the option to develop 29 building lots which the current owner has won all necessary approvals for and that have most of their necessary infrastructure already in place. The Casey Key property, which spans the island from gulf to bay at 712 North Casey Key Road, not only offers luxury on a grand scale, but is also available at a price that makes it one of the most outstanding buys in luxury real estate along Floridas Gulf Coast. Priced at $8.8 million and listed by Linda Dickinson, the propertys lengthy list of features includes a regulation-size tennis court, expansive terraces, summer kitchen, fabulous indoor lap pool and spa, separate two-bedroom guest house, staff quarters, enough garage space for an entire fleet of cars, wine cellar, billiards room and home theater.

His paintings have been featured at Art Naples 2011 as well as the Incognito fundraiser at the Patty & Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art.

Facebook is not to be trusted. Into that great sucking vacuum of time, we willingly spill the dramas of our lives and gobble up the latest from our friends and colleagues, even as we admit the website is nothing but spin invented lives, edited personalities, constructed fabulousness. Still, though I acknowledge nothing on Facebook can be believed, I cant make it through the day without taking a sip, just a quick scroll through the news feed to see whats happening in the wider world. Evidently not much, based on what often pops up. But there are sometimes rare gems, bits of insight or wisdom or brilliant photography that make me stop and sit up in admiration. Enter my Facebook boyfriend. Ill call him Andy. We met in graduate school two years ago although technically speaking, weve never actually met. But given our common interests travel, world affairs, good books a mutual friend thought we should be in touch. So we became friends on Facebook, exchanged a few online messages, and now his posts frequently land in my news feed. Andy regularly shares photos of the places hes visited Greece, Finland and Germany this year and theyre always artful, taken with a good SLR camera, often of local people or scenery. Hes not one for the grainy cell phone shot, the kind of photo on so many Facebook pages, the ones where the guys have their arms draped over the backs of their buddies, sweating bottles of local beer in their hands. Andy never posts photos from inside clubs or bars, he never makes silly faces into the camera, hes never standing beside some tube-top wearing girl he just met. In fact, Andy rarely appears in his own photos, and when he does, he always looks serious and soulful and extremely well groomed. When hes not posting pictures from his world travels, hes writing about world events the riots in Greece, the economic crisis in the eurozone, the drum beat to war with Iran. Sometimes hes witty, other times hes grave, but he always uses proper grammar and correct spelling. For that alone, Id marry him. Ill admit it feels strange, this Facebook-engineered intimacy with someone Ive never met. After all, I know his likes and dislikes, his tastes and hobbies, his political leanings and future aspirations, and in that way our relationship is more intimate than many actual romances. This despite the fact that, like most things on Facebook, our connection is completely invented. Which is what makes online love affairs, especially one-sided ones, so precarious. I recently made the mistake of mentioning my infatuation to our mutual friend. Andy? she said. He has the best Facebook posts, I said. So smart. So sensitive. I think I have a little crush on him. My friend laughed. But hes gay. Say what? Of course, she said. He was pretty open about it at school. Which I would have known if we were friends. I mean, actual friends, not just friends on Facebook, where our edited selves bear as much or as little resemblance to real life as we want. artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSThe problem with my Facebook boyfriend www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2012 Schedule your CoolSculpting consult today! 239-449-8328www.Riverchase-FatFreeze.comComplimentary Consultations available at these locations: Fort Myers Spa Blue MD at Riverchase North Naples Spa Blue MD at Riverchase Downtown Naples Riverchase Dermatology Cape Coral: 413 Del Prado Blvd. S., Suite 101Its not what you lose.

Since then, Ms. van Bergen has established a number of key partnerships with area organizations including ArtsNaples World Festival, Gulfshore Playhouse, Opera Naples and Imagine Solutions. The board is delighted to know that we have Kathleen with us for at least five more years, Ned Lautenbach, newly elected chairman of the board, said. She has made an enormous impact both within the Phil family and in the wider community, and I look forward to partnering with her as we plan our 25th anniversary in 2013-14. Ms. van Bergen outlined several of her priorities for the next season, including a three-year strategic plan that embraces the 25th anniversary celebration, stabilizing the centers finances, expanding community partnerships and building on the centers already extensive education programs. For nearly 25 years, the Philharmonic Center for the Arts has been the center of our cultural community, she said.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2012 perspective. You can have three or four people drawing the same building, and no one draws it the same way. It will all look different. When Mr. Campanario moved to Seattle in 2006 to become a staff artist for The Seattle Times, he searched for a way to connect with his new city. Hed always sketched when he was a teenager growing up in Spain. But when I moved to Seattle, I hadnt been doing it very often, he says. I wanted to improve my drawing skills. I was in a new city, a beautiful city. So I bought a little pocket sketchbook and took it everywhere I went. At the same time, he noticed that many people on the Web had blogs in which they shared pages from their visual journals, showing drawings theyd done of their own cities. I thought, Wow, Im not alone. Im not the only person out there on the street, trying to draw, he says. So in 2007, he started a group on Flickr. He called it Urban Sketchers and invited anyone who likes to draw on location to contribute. A year later, it had 300 members. Then he e-mailed approximately 30 of his favorite sketch artists and suggested they do a group blog. I was interested in not only seeing the sketch, but reading about the experience of the drawing the story behind it, he explains. The site, urbansketchers.org, features the artwork of 100 artists from more than two dozen countries. The phenomenon has spread around the world, and architecture professors and designers are now teaching classes in urban sketching. Little by little, it has become a new definition of the practice, Mr. Campanario says, acknowledging that the idea of field sketching and drawing on location has always been around. Weve been drawing things ever since we were in the cave, he says. But he was the one who christened it Urban Sketching and drew people together from around the world. I didnt expect all this to happen. Its unbelievable. The power of the Web is really engaging, he says. He started a nonprofit group, Urban Sketchers, and in July 2010 held the International Urban Sketching Symposium in Portland, Ore. The following year, it was held in Lisbon. This year, the symposium takes place July 12-14 in the Dominican Republic in Santo Domingo. One hundred people from countries such as Argentina, Brazil and France will attend. Their sketches will be posted online at sdq2012.urbansketchers.org.Book has broad appealMr. Campanarios book, The Art of Urban Sketching: Drawing on location around the world (Quarry Books, $26.99), came out in February of this year and sold out within three weeks. Now its in its fourth printing. Why is it so popular? Theres no other book out there like it, he says, adding, Many books about drawing and sketching are very much instructional books that teach you the steps you have to follow to be able to draw. This is a book that tells readers why it is worth drawing, not how. And the reason why you should draw: You get so much out of it. You get to know your city in a way you never wouldve before. Youre looking at your surroundings, and youre seeing things that you would normally take for granted. You learn to appreciate and see them in a different way. The 320-page book contains more than 500 urban sketches from around the world. (Florida is represented by Thomas Thorspecken, who draws scenes in Orlando.) The book demonstrates the wide variety of styles, material and processes. Some use simple pen and ink. Others use watercolor, while some favor pencils, markers or pastels. Lapin, a Parisian urban sketcher, likes to use old accounting ledgers he finds in flea markets, because he likes the quality and thickness of the pages. Some put the color first, some put the line first, Mr. Campanario says. Theres no one way to do this. Everybody can do this. Obviously, the educational background comes across. Maybe they are landscape architects and have a more precise style. Other people are more free; painters may have a freer style. I wanted to have in the book a good showcase of different styles and diversity from all over the world. It shows that anything is possible, as long as are trying to capture life in your city. People dont have to be professional artists. One participant, a doctor, told Mr. Campanario she finds urban sketching to be very liberating. In her profession, she explained, she cannot make mistakes; but if she doesnt like a sketch, she can just do another one. The book has a broad appeal, extending to those who dont even plan on picking up a sketchbook. Some, he says, just want to travel vicariously through the sketchers. Most of the images arent of landmarks, but of everyday life: people on the street, in a bus, in a caf, construction sites, neighborhoods, harbors, waterfronts, parks. The most mundane places catch your eye when you see them represented by someone, Mr. Campanario says. For example, on the back cover of the book is a sketch of a Norfolk, Va., parking lot with a chain-link fence and a sign that says: Have a nice day. Jana Bouc in San Francisco likes to sketch the wide variety of streetlamps she sees, while Pete Scully, in Davis, Calif., has a penchant for drawing fire hydrants. In France, one woman went to draw in her cemetery, Mr. Campanario says. Any place, really, has potential when you are urban sketching. People like to go to industrial sites. All the machinery and construction has very intricate shapes that are fun to draw. You do have a new appreciation for your environment when youre a sketcher. Thats what a lot of people tell me: I used to hate my city, but now Ive started drawing it, Im starting to see the good side of it.Showing the worldIn 2009, Mr. Campanario started a weekly feature in The Seattle Times. Every Saturday, Seattle Sketcher appears on the cover of the local section, with drawings hes sketched around the city. People in Seattle love it, he says. They send me ideas, things I would have never found on my own. My drawings are different and show a side of the city theyre not used to seeing through art. His column was awarded first place for blog writing in The Best of the West journalism contest and has also been recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists and the Society for Features Journalism. Sketching is something anybody can understand, he says. Sketching is a universal language, just like art. With our drawings, we can see the world in a different way. Our mission is to show the world, one drawing at a time. SKETCHINGFrom page 1 The Urban Sketchers ManifestoThe Urban Sketchers Manifesto can be found in The Art of Urban Sketching. Its also at www.urbansketchers.org, in English, Basque, Chinese, Danish, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Spanish and Portuguese. 1. We draw on location, indoors or outdoors, capturing what we see from direct observation. 2. Our drawings tell the story of our surroundings, the places we live, and where we travel. 3. Our drawings are a record of a time and place. 4. We are truthful to the scenes we witness. 5. We use any kind of media and cherish our individual styles. 6. We support each other and draw together. 7. We share our drawings online. 8. We show the world, one drawing at a time. SKETCH BY REN FIJTENWhile his wife recovered from jet lag in the hotel, Dutch visitor Ren Fijten didnt waste any time in the Big Apple. He drew the Empire State Building standing up and leaning against a lamppost on a traffic island with cars zooming by. Tools and time: Edding 0.3mm technical pen and watercolor on Moleskine large watercolor sketchbook: 40 minutesSKETCH BY JAMES HOBBSWhen drawing Trafalgar Square, Londoner James Hobbs says is easy to get the scale wrong and thus crop off something vital, in this case running the risk of leaving Nelsons Column without Nelson. A degree of creative editing has gone on to ensure the main subjects fit on to the page, he said. Tools and time: Edding 400 and 404 permanent marker pens on sketchbook; 35 minutes.

CALL FOR PRICING NAPLES: 239-435-1883 BONITA: 239-495-1255 ESTERO: 239-948-0061TV pilot being shot at Chez Boet with shades of best-selling trilogy BY ROBIN DEMATTIAFlorida Weekly CorrespondentYou dont have to be a woman in a plum dress or a man in a white linen shirt with a silver-gray silk woven tie to be part of a television show pilot filming in Naples on Thursday, July 19. But it might help. 3 Mag Studios is filming part of the third episode of the Kitty Claus Talk Show beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Chez Boet, 755 12th Ave. S. in Crayton Cove. Guests are encouraged to wear attire based on the popular Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. Just about anything goes during the irreverent comedy talk show format. The premise is that Kitty Claus is Santas wayward daughter who wants to make her own way in the world and aspires to be a journalist. Because she dislikes the cold, she ends up in sunny Southwest Florida, where she runs into her college sweetheart, Hughe Bohner, who is a television producer and, to make things even more interesting, a vampire hunter. This particular episode will focus on dating. Local author Amy Leigh Mercree, whose book The Spiritual Girls Guide to Dating: Your Enlightened Path to Love, Sex & Soulmates was published in January, is a guest on the show. She and Kitty Claus will interact, unscripted, with diners at the restaurant. You dont even have to have read (Fifty Shades of Grey) to know how to dress, says Leslie Persia, technical director for the production company. But with the wackiness of our characters, we thought it would be a fun thing to come dressed up. Ms. Persia says the company is in discussions with HBO and MTV, which are both giving advice for how to fine-tune the show. They have been working on the project for two years. While she was reluctant to discuss the local people involved in the show, Doug Olsen from Philip Douglas Salons lists Co-Creator of the TV Pilot Kitty Claus Talk Show in his biography on the salons website. Ms. Persia confirmed his participation. Chez Boet owner Lisa Boet says she is happy to open her doors for the filming, as she did for an episode last year in which her husband, Philippe, had a part. The show is cheeky but very well done, says Ms. Boet, who plans to wear a gray dress, in keeping with the books title, for the filming. Life is too short. You have to have fun, and this is a really fun event. Guests at the shooting of the TV pilot Kitty Claus T alk Show are encouraged to wear attire based on the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy.

Sam Raimis Spider-Man trilogy received massive acclaim from fans and critics, but the best I could muster was respect for the first two films and an unenthusiastic meh for the third. Now, 10 years after the trilogy started, a reboot to the franchise, The Amazing Spider-Man, has opened and my reaction is a similar disinterest. The reason? Theres a lack of narrative thrust in this origin story that offsets most of the things it does well. In Raimis first film and again in this one, it takes far too long for Peter Parker to become Spider-Man. The first hour of director Marc Webbs ((500) Days Of Summer) film follows high school misfit Peter (Andrew Garfield) as he flirts with Gwen (Emma Stone) and tries to figure out why his parents (Campbell Scott and Embeth Davidtz) disappeared many years earlier. Peters Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field) are mum on the subject, but Peters investigation leads him to Oscorp, a science research facility where he meets his fathers former partner, Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans). While snooping around Oscorp, hes bitten by a spider, after which he gradually discovers his own spider-like ability. Then Uncle Ben is killed and Peter goes on a quest for the murderer. Meanwhile, Connors is missing part of his arm, so he is experimenting with limb regeneration on reptiles. Faced with his work getting shut down, he injects himself with a serum that he hopes will be a cure. Hes wrong. Instead, Connors turns into a huge, inexplicably villainous lizard. One of the main problems is that the central conflict takes far too long to be established. Peter likes Gwen, Gwen likes Peter, and there are obstacles to them being together in particular Gwens overprotective father, policeman Captain Stacy (Denis Leary). Nothing original there. And because Spider-Man doesnt arrive until 45 minutes into the movie, his nemesis The Lizard takes even longer to appear, and when it does it has no motivation. Consider: Why does The Lizard wreak havoc on the city? Because thats what lizards do? Connors is a good guy who turns evil because of a science project gone wrong. Parker is a good guy who turns heroic after an accidental bite. Theres very little difference between the two. To its credit, the visual effects in the action scenes are slick and polished, but not substantially more impressive than what Raimi accomplished with the Sand Man effects in Spider-Man 3. The 3D, particularly during first-person POV shots of Spider-Man as he flies through the city, is fun but hardly spectacular. In other words, the movie looks as good as you expect it to look, but no better. In spite of its flaws, The Amazing Spider-Man has heart. Garfields Peter is sympathetic and likeable and Ms. Stone is appealing, so its easy to root for them through the action and turbulence of adolescence. And so the bottom line becomes this: We care about the characters and the action delivers, which are the two most important elements. Moderate recommendation earned.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC12 WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2012 FLORIDA WRITERSA devilish delight of mystery and magic begins a new series Dark Magic by James Swain. Tor. 352 pages. $24.99. James Swain has switched gears. After building two successful mystery series, he has begun a very promising third one. Its not just mystery, and its not just mystery and magic; this time out, its mystery, magic and psychic powers. And more. Meet Peter Warlock (its not just a stage name). Peter performs spellbinding magic at his own theater on the west side of Manhattan. Still a very young man, he is already a superstar. Since his parents death when he was a boy, Peter has been raised by friends of theirs, all individuals with psychic powers and various kinds of special supernatural talents. The elders in this group have nurtured and protected him while preparing him to deal effectively with his other home the spirit world. This ring of psychics meets regularly for sances that can produce amazing results (often visions of forthcoming crimes or disasters). In Dark Magic, Peter has visions of thousands of people dying in the Times Square area. The cause is unknown, but they have only a few days to help the police discover the means, the ends and the perpetrators so that the disaster can be averted. Working with Garrison, a savvy FBI agent who will act on any lead, even a psychics vision, Peter gains knowledge that a demonic group called the Order of Astrum, the group that murdered his parents, is planning the impending disaster and has sent an assassin to kill Peter, and perhaps the rest of the psychic group. The chase is on. While the suspense builds through the four-day time line, several other issues build momentum as well. A dimension of Peter grows as hes inhabited by a hostile, dark force that is gaining strength and breaking out from time to time. Where does it come from? Can he learn to control it? In whom can he confide about the emerging secrets of his true nature? Members of his psychic family know more than Peter does, but they are reluctant to reveal too much too soon.

How can there be an intimate relationship without trust and sharing? Mr. Swain artfully complicates his mystery plot with these elements of troubled romance and occult powers. Is the author serious with this spiritworld stuff? Well, sort of. There is a glimpse of tongue-in-cheek humor every so often, and a comic stream trickling through the novel lightens tension and invites a complex reaction to the paranormal doings. Horror and charm coexist. And what a cast of characters! The psychic circle is made up of several wonderful oddballs whom readers will enjoy meeting. Most, like Max, are Peters elders, but one is a cute young witch (really) named Holly. Still something of an apprentice, shes working hard to improve the rhyming in her spells. Peters assistants form another group of distinctive and enjoyable personalities. And with the central villain, a man named Wolfe, Mr. Swain gives readers a truly frightening portrait of insidious malice. The action scenes are superb, and the handling of various New York City locals is first rate. Im convinced that Mr. Swain has come up with a surefire winner In Dark Magic. He has concocted a witchs brew of alluring and intoxicating ingredients. The sequel is under contract, and Im hoping that the Peter Warlock series has a bright (or delightfully dark) future.More about the authorJames Swain is the national bestselling author of 14 thrillers. His novels have been translated into 10 languages and chosen as Mysteries of the Year by Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Reviews. Mr. Swain has received three Barry Award nominations, a Florida Book award for fiction and the prestigious Prix Calibre .38 for Best American Crime Writing.

August 10th-12thA CELEBRATION OF OUR FAVORITE CRUSTACEAN!Bargain-priced American art pottery vases are hard to find. But, art pottery tiles made by important companies still are inexpensive, because they have had little publicity. Tile collectors in England and Holland pay high prices for tiles made in their country. Rookwood Pottery of Ohio, and Low Art Tile Co. of Mass. probably are the most famous makers in the U.S. American Encaustic Tiling Co. of Ohio, Trent Tile Co. of New Jersey and many other companies made tiles. Most marked the back of the tile with the company name, and most had a name that included the word tile. The tiles range from small, round or square tiles, about 1 to 2 inches, that were put on stoves and other equipment for decoration to large tiles used on walls in restaurants, fireplace surrounds and hotel lobbies. And, like today, plain small tiles are used for floors in drugstores and bathrooms. Most interesting to collectors are the groups of tiles that form a picture. They were most popular in the 1920s to 1940s. The tiles usually are displayed on racks at shows. Collectors like to frame a tile like a picture to be hung on the wall. A framed 6-inch-square Rookwood tile showing tulips, sold recently for less than $100. A group of tiles forming a scene 24-by-18 inches picturing a Dutch girl and a windmill sold for $1,200. Twenty tiles were used to make the picture on a restaurant wall. Look at salvage yards and talk to the workers tearing down houses. Sometimes you can find large tiles made for the outside of a building that will be destroyed if you dont offer to buy them. Gardeners like to use them outside. Q: I have a brass bed made by the Art Bed Co., Chicago. Id like to know its value.A: Art Bedstead Co. of Chicago, Ill., was in business from the late 1890s until at least 1910. The company made metal beds. Art Beds was a trade name they used. There were several manufacturers of brass and iron beds in Chicago in the late 1800s and early 1900s. In 1914, when World War I began, metal was rationed and production of metal goods for home use stopped. Value of your bed, about $300-$400.Q: My father found a print being used as backing for an old photograph he inherited from his mother. The print is labeled Execution of the Conspirators. It consists of two panels. The left is labeled Praparing (sic) for Execution and the names of the conspirators, Surrat, Powell-Payne, Harold and Atzerodt, are at the bottom. The right panel is titled Springing of the Trap and shows them hanging.

It sold at auction for $1,200 a few years ago at the former Auctions at Rookwood, now called Humler & Nolan, in Cincinnati.the Smithsonian, and Lincolns summer cottage at Soldiers Home, but weve never seen this particular picture in any of their collections. Anything you can tell us would be helpful. A: Although photographs were taken of the hanging of the Lincoln conspirators, newspapers of the day were not able to print them. Pictures in newspapers and other publications were printed from engravings. Alexander Gardner was the only photographer allowed to take pictures of the execution at the Old Arsenal Prison. There are two misspellings on your print. The word preparing is misspelled and the name of one of the conspirators is Herold, not Harold. The print was published in 1865. A copy is in the Library of Congress. Q: My aunt gave me a water pitcher years ago. Its made of a white metal, stainless, aluminum or silver. It has 9HR Regency stamped on the bottom of it and RJR stamped on the side. My aunt retired in the late s from the RJ Reynolds Tobacco Co. What is the value? A: Reed & Barton has been a sterlingsilver and silverplate manufacturer in Taunton, Mass., since 1824. The company has a rich history; having made weapons for the Union Army, silverware for the White House, and medals for the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics. It is still privately owned by the family of Henry G. Reed. The stamp on the bottom is the reference number. It means that the pitcher is silver-plated and part of the Regency collection. RJR must mean it was made for RJ Reynolds Tobacco Co. An identical RJR stamped pitcher in poor condition recently sold for $10. Q: I grew up in Auburn, N.Y., near Owasco Lake. During the summertime, back in the 1930s, bands came every week to play at dances held at a pavilion near the lake. Most of the bands were not famous, but Tommy Dorsey and His Orchestra came once, and I got his autograph. Would a collector be interested in buying the autograph? A: Tommy Dorsey (19051956) was a trombone player and bandleader during the Big Band Era. You dont say if you had Dorsey sign a plain piece of paper or a program. If his autograph is on a piece of paper, a collector would pay $50 to $100 for it. If its on a program with his bands name on it, it could sell for more than $150. Tip: A paste made of instant coffee crystals and water can be used to paint a scratch on dark furniture. Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

CONTRACT BRIDGEBY STEVE BECKERWhen to cover an honorThe principle of covering an honor with an honor is cited with reverence from Walla Walla to Dnepropetrovsk, but the fact is that the application of this rule is not always as simple as it might seem. Thus, it is surely correct to cover with the king if declarer leads the jack from dummys J-3-2 facing the A-Q-4. Covering with the king holds declarer to two tricks instead of the three he would make if the jack were not covered. But it would be wrong to cover if you had the K -x-x and declarer led the jack from dummys J-10-2 toward his A-4-3. He would make two tricks if you covered, but only one if you ducked. As a matter of fact, the best rule to follow is to cover an honor if it can gain a trick for your side, and not to cover if it can cost your side a trick. This advice might not be particularly helpful, as it tells you to use your head instead of a rigid formula, but thats the kind of game bridge is. Todays hand demonstrates the principle. South is in three spades, and West leads the queen of clubs, which holds. When West shifts to the ten of diamonds, declarer goes up with the queen and returns the nine of trumps. If East ducks, so does South, and, as a result, he makes three spades. But if East covers the nine with the jack as he should to cater to the possibility of Wests having four spades that include the eight and a high honor South goes down one. The nine in this case is treated as an honor, and East covers because the play cannot cost him a trick but might gain one.

VINOEven confirmed red wine lovers know its time to lighten upLets face it: No matter how much you love a big cabernet or syrah, our sweltering summers call for something lighter and more refreshing. Just as you shift to less weighty clothes and foods during our long, hot summers, it makes sense to do the same thing when it comes to wines. Its the perfect time to break out the lighterbodied whites and ross. When selecting wines for beating the heat, look for those with fruity flavors, crisp acidity and lower alcohol content. These wines will be racier and lighter on the palate than fuller bodied reds that tend to weigh you down with higher alcohol levels. Chardonnay is the most popular white wine, but not all chardonnay is well suited for summer drinking. Avoid those with heavy oak and rich creamy flavors and seek out the lighter bodied, unoaked style from Australia and Sonoma County in California. Sauvignon blanc is a perfect summer wine, with its zippy acidity and tropical flavors. Chilean and New Zealand styles are better suited to follow y our dip in the pool than some of the fuller bodied California styles. Pinot grigio is another perennial favorite because of its lightness and soft flavors. But the wines that really shine during the sweltering months are ross and a variety of whites that we dont pay much attention to most of the year. Ross made from grenache grapes are full of big fruit flavors and colors, but are certainly lighter bodied than their full red wine brothers. They are made close to the Mediterranean, where this prolific grape is very popular, and where the winemakers have perfected making wines that drink well in the summer heat. This is a great time of year to try out some of the lesser-known whites as well. Rhone style viognier and rousanne wines can be flowery, complex and dry, while Portuguese vinho verde (made from mostly loureira grapes) is bubbly on the tongue and refreshingly low in alcohol, often between 8 percent and 10 percent. Chenin blanc is another satisfyingly light and fruity choice, with fresh fruit flavors ranging from dry to medium dry. So use the summer to branch out from your usual choices. Here are a few of my favorite moderately priced wines you can sue as a starting point.Wine Picks of the Week: Chateau DAqueria Tavel Ros 2010 ($18): Big dry ros with cherry fruit flavors and aromas and a touch of spice on the fresh clean finish. Chateau DEsclans Whispering Angel Cotes de Provence Ros ($20): Elegant wine made by Sasha Lichine. His entry level grenache ros has cherry and strawberry notes, a full nose and light acidity ending with refreshing honey and spice notes. Domaine de Regusse Viognier 2011 ($14): Nice floral honeysuckle and spice nose with orange hints in the palate and a slight minerality ending in a drawn out finish. Graham Beck The Game Reserve Chenin Blanc 2009 ($13): Nice complex nose with pineapple, melon and peach flavors on the palate and a clean, crisp finish. Las Lilas Vinho Verde 2011($11): Light effervescence with a light floral nose, lemon and white fruit flavors and clean, fresh finish. Les Rastellains Cotes du Rhone Rose 2010 ($14): Well made fuller-bodied rose from mostly grenache, with medium color and aromas of crushed berries carrying through to the palate with a crisp mineral finish. Moncigale Cotes de Provence Ros 2011 ($12): Light, crisp and refreshing with light strawberry on the nose, mixed berry flavors and a clean finish. Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc Viognier 2011 ($15): Rich floral nose followed by white peach and pear flavors mixed with tropical fruits carries through to the clean finish. Quo Grenache Ros 2010 Campo de Borja ($14): Deep rich red color for a ros, fuller in body with cherry and berry nose, and black cherry flavors. Crisp structure with balanced finish. Shannon Ridge Rousanne 2009 Morine Ranch Lake County ($15): Big tropical fruit nose with pineapple and citrus notes. The layers of flavors of tropical fruits and a touch of stone fruits carry through into the lingering finish. Tablas Creek Ros Paso Robles 2011 ($30): Made in the Rhone style with grenache, mourvedre and couinoise grapes. Lively crisp flavors of strawberry and raspberry ending with a hint of spice on the soft finish. s t a d o jimMcCRACKENvino@floridaweekly.com JIM MCCRACKEN / FLORIDA WEEKLYRefreshing wines for the summertime.

BARHAPPY HOUR Daily 5-7pm We Prepare Food With Passion For Lasting Impressions NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 CUISINERibs are reason enough to revisit landmark MichelbobsBarbecue lovers are a finicky breed. Some like it wet, some dry. Some like it sweet, some spicy. Some like Rib City Grill, some are partial to Sonnys. What most everyone can agree on is the desirability of smoke-infused meat thats slightly crusty on the outside and tender enough inside to surrender the bone without a fight. By that measure, Michelbobs Champion Ribs live up to their boastful name. The Naples landmark on Airport-Pulling Road has been bragging about its barbecue (best ribs in America, etc.) since 1979, and has served more than 10 million pounds of ribs in 33 years, according to its website. Co-owners Marsha Gibbs and Bob Mattson concocted their own spice rub for their slow-smoked Danish baby backs, a mustard and paprika blend presented in shakers on every table just in case you want an extra punch of flavor. They also bottle two sauces to slather on the meaty bones one tangy with mustard (complex and well balanced), the other smoky-sweet (tasting heavily of Liquid Smoke). All of which is enough to satisfy anyone with a serious hankering for good ribs. If its smoked pork shoulder or chicken youre after, however, you might be less impressed, if our experience is indicative. More on that later. We were quickly seated on the weeknight we visited, which was somewhat of a surprise. Drive past this place on an evening during season, and youre likely to see a full parking lot and patrons lining up outdoors. The dining room is furnished with lots of rough, worm-etched wood paneling, tin fixtures and vintage CocaCola signs that add up to a comfortably rustic ambience without seeming junky or hokey. Rock hits from the s playing in the background added to the nostalgic air. Beer and wine selections are sorely limited, with only Budweiser on tap and Copperidge as the house wine. I guess you cant expect craft brews and fine vintages in a barbecue joint, huh? We settled for cold bottles of Heineken ($4.25). Choices are even fewer when it comes to appetizers: onion rings or nothin. Three portions are offered of the hand-cut, hand-dipped rings for $4, $6 and $8. We ordered the momma size ($6), and it was perfect for two people to share. The thick rings were well coated with crunchy batter containing a hint of what tasted like the signature spice rib. Weve become so accustomed to being served dipping sauce with everything in restaurants that we were struck by the absence of it here. Of course, who really needs it? Our only legitimate complaint was the oiliness of the rings, which could have been avoided by better draining out of the fryer. Michelbobs offers various combinations of its barbecue, so its easy to get samplings of ribs, chicken, pork and beef. Most include a choice of sides such as baked beans, cole slaw, potato salad, French fries, garlic toast and corn on the cob. If someone in your party doesnt do cue, there are a few alternatives: giant salads with optional add-ins, a fried catfish dinner and hand-cut, grilled steaks ranging from $9.99 to $19.99. We, of course, were after barbecue above all else and did our best to order a representative sampling. When all was said and done, and all saucy fingers licked clean, the baby backs truly stood out from the rest of the meal. We ordered a full rack with a quarter-chicken ($21.59), which offered ample ribs to share between the two of us. The meaty bones were quickly dispatched. The flesh was tender enough to slip off easily and had those crispy edges that just add a little extra texture to the experience. The chicken was less remarkable. We chose dark meat and it was moist enough, but the skin was rubbery and the meat lacked much in the way of seasoning. Adding barbecue sauce helped, but wed rather have just eaten more ribs instead. As for the sides, the runny cole slaw was just average, and the potato salad would have benefited from a flavor boost. But we had no complaints about the delicious baked beans. Studded with chunks of pork, they were tender, smoky and sweet. Im not a real enthusiast when it comes to baked beans, but even I cleaned out the plastic cup they came in. For contrast, we ordered a smoked pork dinner ($12.79), which also includes slaw and beans, potato and garlic toast. Unfortunately, the ample stack of sliced meat leaned toward the dry side. One can always add sauce to compensate, but then you end up tasting sauce rather than smoky pork not ideal. French fries were hot and crisp. By this time, we were in need of wet napkins to clean up sticky fingers. We asked the server for them, but she never delivered so we had to wash our hands in the restroom (which thankfully was not as rustic as the dining room). She did quickly return with the check and a slice of peanut b utter pie ($5.29) that was fine but nothing special. Service in general was pretty spare; since water is only served on request, the waitress apparently saw little reason to return to the table with any regularity. Fortunately, this bare-bones approach does not apply when it come to Michelbobs justifiably famous ribs. drewSTERWALD email@example.com DREW STERWALD / FLORIDA WEEKLY Michelbobs Champion Ribs, >> Hours: 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Friday; 4-9 p.m. Saturday; closed Sunday >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Entrees $5.19-$21.59 >> Beverages: Full bar >> Specialties of the house: Barbecue >> Volume: Low >> Parking: Free lot >> Website: www.michelbobs.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: 371 Airport Pulling Road, Naples; 643-7427SuperbNoteworthyGoodFairPoor Any meal at Michelbobs should start with the hand-cut, hand-battered onions rings.
