COURTESY IMAGES The morning started out rainy, but the forecasters predicted clearing and we were hopeful that Valentines Day would turn into a perfect day for our passengers who pined for the sights and sounds of the Southwest Florida environment. Driving down Shell Island Road toward the Good Fortune II launching dock, we first spotted an adult eagle drying its wings in the tall pines near the Briggs Boardwalk. Then a quarter mile farther along, juvenile eagles, still with their dark brown feathers tinged with bronze, were drying out as well. This proved auspicious. Because the rain had kept the birds from feeding at dawn, many more were still out on Rookery Bay looking for breakfast. We boarded the boat under blue skies and set off to check out the eagles nest in Hall Bay. This particular nest has been active for many years, with the same pair of adults returning each December to build their nest in the top crotch of a tall pine. We spotted the two juveniles standing on the nest. Even though they appeared to be almost as large as their parents, the young eagles are not yet fully fledged and cannot fly.

David Buser, MD Radiation Oncologist 800-347-7748 | www.acr.org (239) 325-1440www.PremiereOnc.com We dont actually live in the 21st century, I just realized. Nor do we inhabit a place called the United States of America not unless you define the word men narr owly. We hold these truths to be sacred and un-deniable, wrote Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. When he handed the statement to Benjamin Franklin in the summer of 1776, the persnickety editor changed Jeffersons original phrase to self-evident, and let the rest go. And that did it. The two rebels had branded their words into the hide of our national character in the most clear and unambiguous way. Jefferson, educated in Greek and Roman classics and the philosophy of such thinkers as John Locke, used the word men to mean humanity, as classicists traditionally did. And all of that was long ago and far away, in another galaxy, apparently. We still cant bring ourselves to mean humanity, 237 years later. Instead, we still mean men, literally. Especially white men. Im not beating an old drum, here. History, along with some very current statistics from the federal Bureau of Labor, prove that without a doubt.Thus, as a society, we live somewhere else, somewhere that lies a century or two behind the current country and calendar we claim to possess. In short, we trail along in the backwash of American time like the oily roll of a boats wake. The most undeniable historic example of this is slavery. Highlighted more or less by playwright-turned-screenwriter Tony Kushner and director Steven Spielberg in the film Lincoln (a good bet on Oscar night coming up Sunday, Feb. 24), slavery was abolished as an institutional practice during the Civil War at least on the calendar. The war ended in 1865. Did we then move blacks directly into the all men category defined by Jefferson, either that year or the next as one might expect or even by the 20th century, still 35 years away? Not quite. The calendar rolled on without all men created equal right through the dawn of flight, two world wars, the Korean War, and the Way-Down-in-the-Delta blues, who had a baby and named it not just Elvis rock n roll, as McKinley Morganfield once noted. Blacks were treated not just as secondclass citizens across that vast swath of American time, but as second-class citizens who got to the party through the back door, carrying a highly contagious disease evidenced by the color of their skin. Other people, not black, went out of their way to throw them out, hold them back, cast them into generations of poverty and abuse, and generally mistreat them. The Civil Rights Act itself, which aimed to end a history characterized by lynchings, conscript labor, voting-rights abuses, segregation from white neighborhoods, segregation from white businesses, segregation from white churches, white schools and white life, became law in 1964. I was already 11 years old. That was exactly 101 years after President Lincolns Emancipation Proclamation, and 99 years after Robert E. Lees surrender to Lincolns unwavering bottom line, Ulysses S. Grant. Even then, of course, we still couldnt turn the calendar page forward far enough to reach 1865 not all of us. In such Florida counties as Collier and Lee (but not Charlo tte) on the west coast, or Palm Beach County on the east, school desegregation continued until federal judicial threats forced those school districts to comply, in the late 1960s and early 1970s. But so what isnt that all behind us? Well, no. We still havent figured out what Jefferson meant when he wrote, All men. As a general rule, women, especially black and Hispanic women, do not get paid as much as their male counterparts, according to the most recent reports from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Released last month, these figures are telling: in the fourth quarter of last year, women who worked full time earned a median weekly salary of $692, which is less than 80 percent of the salaries of men, who made $875. Now things get more complicated. Black and Hispanic working women made a greater percentage than white working women of the salaries their black and Hispanic male counterparts could make: 87.4 percent for black women, and 86.6 percent for Hispanic women. Asian working women, meanwhile, made only 71.6 percent of the salaries of Asian working men. But the flip-side statistic is that black and Hispanic men made only $680 per week (black) or $571 per week (Hispanic) significantly less than white men. Which means black and Hispanic women are the worst paid, and by extension the worst treated people in the country. (Asian males, by the way, made a median weekly salary of $910, according to the Labor Bureau, even more than white males. Thus, Asian women, paid only 71.6 percent of that, still made a median weekly salary of $652, more than black and Hispanic women, and Hispanic males). And that aint cool at all. There are many factors the statistics dont point to, of course, including these two: the fact that women who get out of the labor force to have babies and raise them, then return, take tremendous professional hits in money and status, something compensated for in many other Western nations. The fact that blacks and Hispanics sometimes are not as well educated as Asians or whites. But those factors point back to the same problem the same problem weve had all along, apparently: Many of us cant figure out what the hell Jefferson meant when he wrote, All men are created equal. The notion is sacred. Its undeniable. Its self-evident, isnt it? Someday, I want to turn the calendar page to a new month and year, and see not January, or February, or March, or any other month or year appear in an old Gregorian calendar (created in 1582, a mere 196 years before Jefferson and Franklin branded our character). I just want to see this written across the top: From here on out, All men are created equal. But thatll have to come in another time and place, I imagine.

It has executed one of the most effective stonewalls in recent memory over the Benghazi attack last Sept. 11 that killed our ambassador to Libya and three others. Its handling of the aftermath of the debacle is a model example of the power of obfuscation and delay. Future high-ranking officials please take note: This is how it is done. All the smart PR gurus say it is best to release bad news as soon as possible to get ahead of the story. The Obama White House wasnt foolish enough to follow this hackneyed advice. It advanced laughably implausible explanations for the attack from the first and has refused to provide a full accounting of its handling of it to this day. The imperative for the White House was, first, to try to deny that the assault was a coordinated terrorist attack lest that undermine its anti-terror credentials and, second, to push further consideration of the matter past the November election. After that, there would be, by definition, no electoral consequences from more fallout. So the Accountability Review Board report from the State Department was scheduled to hit ... in December. When asked about Benghazi during the campaign, the president could say, Nobody wants to find out more what happened than I do. Of course, President Barack Obama always knew what he did or did not do during the course of the eight-hour attack that started at the consulate and continued at a safe house. If he had covered himself in glory, surely he or someone close to him would have let reporters know. Instead, nothing. Time passed, and he won re-election. When Congress got around to its Benghazi hearings, Benghazi had become a watchword for right-wing obsessiveness and lack of perspective. Polite commentators could barely suppress a snicker w hen utt ering the word. The other week, outgoing Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta revealed under questioning that after a previously scheduled meeting with the president at the White House at 5 p.m. at the outset of the attacks, he had no other communication from the president or anyone else at the White House the rest of the night. Neither, according to his own testimony, did Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey. This raises the question of what President Obama was doing during the long hours of an attack that killed a U.S. ambassador for the first time since 1979. Or it should raise the question. The press isnt much interested in asking it. Given the opportunity to query the president directly in his joint interview with President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Steve Kroft of Minutes stuck to more pressing matters, like any sense of guilt Clinton might feel about not preventing the attacks. Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina vows to hold up Obama administration nominees until he gets answers. His determination is admirable, but by now, no one really cares. The stonewall worked, alas. Benghazi was a fiasco. The handling of its aftermath by President Obama and his team was brilliant. I guess thats why they call him the commander in chief. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Historic tar-sands action at Obamas doorFor the first time in its 120-year history, the Sierra Club engaged in civil disobedience, the day after President Barack Obama gave his 2013 State of the Union address. The group joined scores of others protesting the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, which awaits a permitting decision from the Obama administration. The president made significant pledges to address the growing threat of climate change in his speech. But it will take more than words to save the planet from human-induced climate disruption, and a growing, diverse movement is directing its focus on the White House to demand meaningful action. The Keystone XL pipeline is especially controversial because it will allow the exploitation of Canadian tar sands, considered the dirtiest oil source on the planet. One of the leading voices raising alarm about climate change, James Hansen, the director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, wrote of the tar sands in The New York Times last year, If Canada proceeds, and we do nothing, it will be game over for the climate. New research by nonprofit Oil Change International indicates that the potential tar-sands impact will be even worse than earlier believed. Because the proposed pipeline crosses the border between the U.S. and Canada, its owner, TransCanada Corp., must receive permission from the U.S. State Department. Among those arrested outside the White House was Julian Bond, former chair of the NAACP. Bond said, The threat to our planets climate is both grave and urgent. ... I am proud today to stand before my fellow citizens and declare, I am willing to go to jail to stop this wrong. The environmental crisis we face today demands nothing less. Two weeks of protests at the White House in the summer of 2011 led to the arrest of 1,252 people. Later, in November, thousands more joined to encircle 1600 Pennsylv ania Ave., calling for denial of the Keystone XL permit. Days later, President Obama announced he would delay the decision until 2013, after the election. He later granted permission to build the southern leg of the pipeline, from Oklahoma through Texas. That decision sparked protests from landowners and environmentalists, including a nonviolent direct-action blockade campaign in Texas, with people chained to pipeline equipment and occupying land with tree-sits to halt construction. Early in the permit process, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she was inclined to approve the pipeline, even though the State Departments mandatory review was incomplete. Controversy erupted when The Washington Post reported that TransCanadas lobbyist for the pipeline in D.C., Paul Elliott, was a senior staffer on Hillary Clintons 2008 presidential campaign. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, headed by Obama-appointee Lisa Jackson, had been critical of the pipeline. When Ms. Jackson resigned unexpectedly late last December, the New York Post reported, based on an unnamed Jackson insider, She will not be the EPA head when Obama supports it (Keystone) getting built. Ms. Jacksons spokesperson denied the allegation. President Obamas new secretary of state, John Kerry, weighed in on Keystone XL after his first official meeting with a foreign dignitary, Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird. Mr. Kerry said: Secretary Clinton has put in place a very open and transparent process, which I am committed to seeing through. I can guarantee you that it will be fair and transparent, accountable, and we hope that we will be able to be in a position to make an announcement in the near term. In his State of the Union address, Mr. Obama gave hope to those concerned with global warming, saying, For the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change. ... We can choose to believe that Superstorm Sandy, and the most severe drought in decades, and the worst wildfires some states have ever seen were all just a freak coincidence. Or we can choose to believe in the overwhelming judgment of science and act before its too late. Presidents Day weekend saw what is expected to be the largest climatechange protest in history, called Forward on Climate. One hundred thirty-five organizations participated, including the Sierra Club, the Indigenous Environmental Network and 350.org. The Sierra Club is one of the worlds largest and most powerful environmental organizations. Its decision to participate in civil disobedience signals a major escalation in the movement to stem climate change, reviving the words of the Sierra Clubs first president, John Muir, who wrote in 1892, Hoping that we will be able to do something for wildness and make the mountains glad.

We rely on institutions such as our churches and temples, clubs and organizations in which we share common interests. The arts also contribute to our sense of community, as do causes focused on helping the less fortunate. Businesses of all sizes contribute goods and services for our needs and provide jobs for members of our community. We also rely on media outlets, such as Florida Weekly, that bring us news and information about whats happening around us. Russell Tuff, a former editor of several media outlets on the Paradise Coast, has made his living getting to the heart of a community, finding what makes it tick and sharing the news of that community or niche to create a greater sense of community. He has owned and sold newspapers, had a short career in radio and launched a variety of news products. As a publisher, Russell led his teams to several first-place finishes in the Florida Press Association Better Newspaper Contest. He began his newspaper career in 1965, sweeping floors and cleaning toilets in the offices of his parents weekly paper in Blackduck, Minn. He was promoted to hot lead melter on the Linotype machine and eventually ran several presses including a Heidelberg, AB Dick Offset and a Goss press. Seeing his potential, his parents added sales calls to his duties at the age of 16. After college, he joined Tuff Publications, where he served as sales manager in Blue Earth, Minn. In 1989, Tuff Publications moved to Collier County, where Russell served as publisher of the Everglades Echo, the Golden Gate Gazette and Golf Naples Times, among others. He sold the business in 2004 and in 2005 joined the Naples Media Group to launch the Collier Citizen. His duties and title evolved to executive editor for community/niche publications. He currently specializes in whats called content marketing, which he describes as the key to growing, building and retaining an audience, whether youre in the media business or the shoe business (but then, according to Russell, we are all in the media business). If we utilize the strength, news and qualities that make up our communities and help them to grow and prosper, we can make this world a better place, he believes. We need to find the niche we want to play and work in, and build up that niche by bringing back the personality to our businesses, our homes and our community. If each one of us can help make each part of our community a profitable and vital part of our lives, our community will flourish. The community is the backbone of our freedoms as Americans. t p O p t l h bobHARDEN e-mail: email@example.com PROFILES IN PARADISEEditor seeks change through community connections Talking points with Russell TuffSomething your mother was always right about: My mother was right about everything.

Stories by Kevin Pierce, Scott Simmons, Osvaldo Padilla, Athena Ponushis, Artis Henderson and Glenn Miller Florida Weekly STORIES NOT IN MICHIGAN ANYMORE GROWING UP IN THE TIME OF TEXTILESBY KEVIN PIERCE SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY BY OSVALDO PADILLA OPADILLA@FLORIDAWEEKLY.COMI BEGIN WITH A DISCLAIMER: DESPITE HAVING LIVED HERE NEARLY 50 YEARS, I WASNT born here (a condition which the real old-timers still greet with, Howre you liking it so far?) My birthplace is Ironwood, Mich., an Upper Peninsula town as far north of Southwest Florida as you can go without crossing into a foreign country that puts cheese and gravy on its French fries. I came to Fort Myers in 1964 to start first grade while my parents started an AM radio station. In searching for a photo to accompany this, I noted, for the first time, a Wizard of Oz quality in my childhood photos: all pre-Florida pictures are small and black-and-white, while everything after the move to Florida is larger and in color. The norths wicked witch mustve been squashed flat when we plopped down. The photos show these items of note: We didnt just have vacant lots in the s and 0s; we had vacant LAND. Huge hundred-acre fields of sandspurs, meadowlarks and black snakes. We had woods of palmetto, slash pine and fire-control paths cut through sugar sand. And our swimming hole was the rock pits that would later become Lakes Park. These were the all-day (and sometimes all-night) stomping grounds for me and my friends. Screentime then meant outside the porchand window-screens, and the fields, woods and rock pits are where we spent it. THE RHYTHM OF A SEWING MACHINE CHUG-CHUG-CHUG-CHUG-CHUG, SQUEEEEEAL filled our evenings. By the light of one lamp, my mother sat in the front room of our compact two-bedroom house, working her way through plastic bags filled with piecework. Shed stitch pocket after pocket or crotch after crotch onto clothes sporting labels for brands such as Ocean Pacific and L.L. Bean. Long after the rest of the lights had gone out, the lamp stayed lit, and the sewing machines vibrations carried gently along the wood-framed floor, lulling my brother and sister and me to sleep. It was 1979, or or It was all of them. This was the height of Hialeahs factory phase before NAFTA took our sweatshop jobs and exported them to sweatier shops in other countries. Then, like today, a few quarters would treat you to a sticky, flaky guava pastelito at a bakery around the corner any corner. Car alarms, the train whistle from a mile away, roosters and the cacophony of Cubans communicating, like trumpets, filled the air the way the smell of roast pork would (and still does) on Christmas Eve. My father, a foreman in a shoe factory that produced parts for Nike and those generic sneakers you used to find in bins at the general store, spoke no English.

I dont remember what year the air conditioning came to the schools, but the smells of the years before were equal parts perspiration, purple mimeographs and brown paper towels. There are pictures of my 1967 Firebird convertible, 1968 MG-B convertible and 13-foot Boston Whaler with a 50-horsepower motor (only rated for a 40). The boat probably racked up more miles as I could drive it before I was old enough for the cars. This trio of tops-down conveyances will likely keep me in close contact with a dermatologist. Some pictures remind me of the areas disorienting growth. Why did they build it so far south of town? was a question that would be posed of American Department Store (its building is now a storage facility in central Fort Myers), Edison Mall (which will always be The Mall to those of us here when it was built) and later the Bell Tower Shops (which went up near where the NASA tracking station used to host annual field trips for our science classes). The pictures remember Miracle Lanes, Raymonds Rollerland and Chicken Unlimited. Hickeys Creek, Fisheating Creek and Camp Franklin Miles. Lovers Key, Cayo Costa and New Pass. They remind me that Colonial Boulevard used to be two lanes and so dramatically sloped for drainage that it was a challenge to keep from falling into the ditch. They remind me of the next door neighbor who took me to see the first moon launch at Cape Canaveral and of the radio-station privileges that let my family have the run of a new Disney attraction near Orlando days before it opened to the public. I can only hope that when my Lee County-born daughter and son (who attended, respectively, the same middle school and elementary school I did) look back at their childhood photos and note the early-years shift from old color prints to newer digital images, that they are taken back to the s and 2000s, and that as Sunshine State natives, they can play I remember when ... with a place they still fondly call home. b drank Pabst, but always only just one can.

A substantial man with warm Irish eyes, Mr. Kelly was missing an arm and made nothing of it. He helped my dad and my Uncle Jorge run thick PVC pipes to tie into the city sewer system after some decree came down requiring everyone to upgrade their plumbing. They were Rush and REO Speedwagon and Billy Joel years. And sure, they were Celia Cruz and Johnny Ventura and K.C. and the Sunshine Band years, too. Those years took place everywhere in America. But from my vantage point, they took place during the great Cuban-Miami rising of the 1980s. It was in that place where an angry old woman once admonished me, Youre in America, speak American. It was also where my friends would pelt each other with rotting mangoes and share tangerines or bananas that sat on the edges of our property lines. Its where we yelled after the ice-cream truck, Ehhhh-Stope! Ehhh-Stope! laughing our heads off as we mocked our elders accents.

THE MOUNTAIN WOMAN OF FORT MYERS BEACH WOODS INTO NEIGHBORHOODSBY ARTIS HENDERSON AHENDERSON@FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM BY ATHENA PONUSHIS APONUSHIS@FLORIDAWEEKLY.COMI MOVED TO FORT MYERS BEACH FROM THE MOUNTAINS OF NORTH GEORGIA IN THE SUMmer of 1987, at a time when the beach was barely middle class. This was before DiamondHead, before the yacht marina, before property values soared and beach residents found themselves unlikely millionaires. We drove down from Georgia in a brown Oldsmobile with seven cats in the back seat. By the time I started school in the fall, the salt air had eaten through the paint and rust spread like leprosy across the hood. Not that we minded. On the beach, everybodys car seemed to be on its last leg. Over time I traded my mountain ways for the tidal flow of coastal living. I learned to love stingrays and fighting conchs. My country accent faded. Somewhere along the line its hard to say when the beach changed, too. The shrimpers and drunks and itinerants started disappearing, replaced by men and women in expensive outdoors wear. The newcomers bought the old beach cottages and added expensive additions. Or they tore them down and started over, covering the beach sand beneath a layer of fancy pavers. Suddenly there was a feeling of having been discovered, in the way that North America was discovered, i.e., by people not already living there. It seemed as if someone had stumbled on our backwater community and realized it could be a high-end vacation spot, if only we would bulldoze the old beach shacks and get rid of the locals. I remember the exact moment when I knew the beachs image had changed. I was applying for a job and the man interviewing me said, Fort Myers Beach? You must be big money. I laughed and before I could stop myself said, Oh, no. Were beach trash from way back. Not that the changes to the beach have been bad. Were incorporated now and we have lovely public parks and a beautiful Times Square. But I fear what we have lost in our rush to remake ourselves. To create room for the mammoth duplexes built by developers and carrying price tags in the $2 million range, MY FAMILY GOES BACK FIVE GENERATIONS IN FORT MYERS, SEVEN GENERATIONS IN THE state. My great-great-grandmother used to tell of the time the Indian chief came to see her father, urging him to hide his family, for that night there was going to be a raid. She hid up under a footbridge, holding onto her little sister, listening to the horses hooves crossing above. Their homestead was just south of the Charlotte County line, out by Hammock Pond. My great grandmother would steer her skiff to Thomas Edisons dock, where the two would sit and fish and swap stories. Her daddy ran the ferry between Fort Myers and North Fort Myers before there was a bridge. She ran Crescent Fish Market, a market she opened with her husband in 1924. My mama believes this was the first fish market downtown. And every Thursday, thats where Thomas Edison sent his attendant to buy his fish. My grandmothers daddy was a mullet man. She remembers riding out to Pine Island, watching him glide his skiff without leaving a ripple, fishing back in the days of gill nets. Riding out there with her now, whenever you cross the bridge at Matlacha Pass, she always looks down and says, Thats where I got my freckles on my shoulders. My grandmother was born in the old Lee Memorial Hospital, across the street from where the hospital stands now. Soon as she was big enough, she was feeding chickens. Her brother milked the cow. Every Saturday, the family would go into town to buy groceries and see a movie at the Edison Theatre. Once or twice they went to the Ritz, a movie house in the Patio de Leon with an alligator pit out front so city folk could see a real gator. My mama was chased by water moccasins twice. She grew up living down the same dirt road, swimming in the same creek as her mama. Seems we a story I had written for an assignment in sixth grade. It was a book, about eight pages of loose-leaf papers stapled together, written in the neatest penmanship I could command. It was a complete narrative that ended with a doomed fleet of Earthlings discovering a planet of peaceful alien monkey-men. Miss Bohr gave me a perfect score. Those were G.I Joe and A-Team years. The sewing machine was set in a thick wooden table. My mother piled one stack of fabric pieces to her left and another stack, the smaller pieces, on a square bench next to her squat, swiveling six-legged chair of metal and wood. Shed bring two pieces together, matching them up just so. Moving quickly, shed set the pieces down in the needles path. Then shed push. At just the right pressure. Fingertips on the fabric, her foot would ease onto the exquisite steel pedal. Shed guide the fabric along the tables surface toward the back of the machine. Chug-chug-chug-chug-chug, Squeeeeeal. The wooden table, in turn, would resist her fingertips and push them forward, ever so slightly, back toward her. For a long time, this was the tables shadow war. But eventually, by the Seinfeld and Frasier years, she couldnt deny the pain in her hands. The weve had to tear down the old cottages, the dream homes of another generation. Weve sacrificed the beach as an affordable destination, a place where people such as my grandparents who grew up poor by Lake Okeechobee and worked hard all their lives could buy a little house on the water. Instead I worry that our newer, cleaner version of Fort Myers Beach with its high property values and elite boating clubs will only let in a certain type of person. A person not from around here. But who am I to say anything? The moment I could, I left the beach. I went to college in the northeast and stayed there, away from Florida, away from home, away from the community that raised me. To stay would have meant acknowledging my low-rent roots. It would have meant owning where Im from, not just the stretch of white sand that fronts the gulf but everything that comes with it the Oldsmobile and the too-many cats and the seedier parts of FMB living. I left because no one up north would know what it means to be beach trash. Only now, after many years away, have I come to appreciate the unique character of Fort Myers Beach and the blessing it was to grow up there. The beach has a distinct saltiness that works its way into your bones. Im glad its in mine. always lived out in the woods somewhere and my friends all lived in lovely little neighbor hoods, Mama s ays. I could not understand why we had to live so far away. Now I wish we could go live in the woods again, but all the woods have been cleared into neighborhoods. My mama remembers eating from her grandmas grove of guava trees. She remembers climbing her grandmas mulberry tree. She says thats where she ran when she ran away from home grandmas mulberry tree. My mama remembers when trips to the beach took a long time not because of the traffic, but because of the anticipation. She remembers celebrating all the February birthdays down at the Edison Festival of Light parade. Thats when her memories start to meld into mine. I remember growing up down the same dirt road as my mama. I remember me and my cousins spray-painting our initials on the shells of gopher turtles, so when we saw them later, we knew who saw them first. (Forgive me, turtles.) I remember picking sweet peas and green beans with my grandmother. I remember rolling out sheets of Visqueen, drenching them in dish soap, turning them into slip n slides out by the pond on the farm. My little sister bruised her tailbone because of such escapades. I remember my mama and my grandmother running us to Silver Springs to see the glass bottom boats, to Weeki Wachee to see the mermaids dance underwater with their air hoses, to Cypress Gardens to see the girls done up like Southern belles, like they were trying to outrun time to show us our home. But what I remember most would be going to Fort Myers Beach, my sister chasing birds, my mama making sandwiches and me digging my toes in the sand playing with coquina shells, til I got shoulder freckles of my own. woods patient offensive had worn her down. It was just as well. By then, the factories to the east of the r ailr oad tr acks were becoming vacant, and the people pined for the crappy jobs of the past. My father, after 22 years of service with only five sick days (when a Ma-cheen lopped off the top of his index finger), was let go from the Gator Shoe Corporation. He worked for as long as he could on other factory crews. By then he had no more use for the end-of-day brewski. The kids had grown up. Long after I had left home, during Weeds and Anthony Soprano years, Miss Bohr tracked me down on Facebook. She mentioned the book I had written, and the impression it had made on her. Later that night, I thought of my mothers fingertips, bent as they are, at 45-degree angles. She had fought that wood, in large measure, to keep my siblings and me in private Catholic school. We were in a Miami Vice and Scarface world, where some gang member had been stabbed to death at Babcock Park a block away from the house, and some other guy had been shot behind the video store and pizzeria around the corner in the other direction. She trusted the church and its teachers to protect us from this dangerous, foreign world. The piecework helped pay the price of tuition for the three of us. Women such as Miss Bohr and her bosses the Sisters of Mercy held up their part of the bargain. My mothers unrelenting fingertips had kept us safe.

SURVIVING NUCLEAR CRISIS NEAR TAMPA BAYBY GLENN MILLER FLORIDA WEEKLY CORRESPONDENTTHE CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS LED TO THE ONLY OCCASION I RECALL MY DAD SHOUTING AT MY mom. He wasnt mad at Khruschev or Castro or Kennedy. Not that sunny Saturday afternoon. It was October 1962. I had just turned 10 the month before. My chances of reaching 11 were, perhaps, about to evaporate in a nuclear holocaust. We lived on the second story of a two-unit, two-story apartment building on Livingston Avenue near the north end of St. Petersburg, across Tampa Bay from MacDill Air Force Base. That the base, not the apartment would have been a prime target for the Soviet Union if war came. My parents had jugs and bottles of water and cans of food, saving in case we survived into some dystopian, apocalyptic, post-attack nightmare. My mom worked the midnight shift at Spurlocks Diner out on 34th Street. My dad, at that time, may have been driving a cab. Dad was at work. Mom was exhausted from working on her feet all night and was sleeping. I loved three things in 1962 baseball, movies and books. Still do. That morning, as the world teetered on the precipice of war, I woke my mom and asked permission to go to the movies and for some tip money, the nickels, dimes and quarters she earned at the diner. She said yes. I suppose. I grabbed some change, opened the screen door and walked down wooden steps, through a small back yard, up an alley and a couple of blocks to Fourth Street and a bus stop. Took the bus downtown to Williams Park, the bus depot. Then walked a few blocks to either the Florida or State theater. Maybe I watched The Longest Day or Birdman of Alcatraz or perhaps The Miracle Worker, 1962 releases which I vaguely recall seeing in theaters. Cant say for sure which one I watched that October Saturday. After the movie, I retraced the route. Alone. In 1962, 10-year-old kids did things like that. Meanwhile, my dad had returned home. My brother and sister were there. Not me. Not as World War III edged closer. As I walked up the stairs and then opened that screen door I could hear my dad yelling at my mom. How could she let me go out at such a time? The Soviets, of course, never fired a nuclear missile at MacDill Air Force Base, a few miles from our Livingston Avenue apartment. It was in that little two-bedroom apartment, a place without air conditioning, that I also learned a little about race relations. Florida was still segregated. I attended white Rio Vista Elementary. At the time kids often said things such as Eenie, meenie, minie-moe pick a tiger by the toe. At least thats what I said. Other kids, alas, substituted the n word for tiger. I was appalled. That word wasnt used in our home. So I asked my parents about this. Wouldnt these other kids, I asked, get in trouble if their parents knew they used a bad word for colored people? My parents explained, as much as they or anybody could, that the parents likely used that bad word and taught it to their kids. Mom and Dads message was this: Some of my classmates were being taught to hate. I didnt understand it then. Heck, I still dont. But thanks, Mom and Dad, for trying to explain it. My dad passed away in 1999. My mom is now 82 and resides near St. Petersburg, in a town called Dunedin, with my brother and sister, who wisely didnt go to the movies during the biggest world crisis of the past 60 years.

The first sign of a flat foot is to observe the arch of the foot while the child is barefoot on a solid flat surface, and we must look at this from in front and from behind. Ask the child to take a few steps to see what the arch is doing, either it is collapsing in stance, or it remains fixed in a flat position. After this, the child is observed from behind and the knees are assessed for varus or valgus position. Also the shoe wear pattern will give clues as to the severity of the deformity. The definitive diagnosis is done by a foot and ankle specialist, and often times this will go under diagnosed in children who have mild pain or are not very active and are obese, which can mask the severity of the condition. A common misconception is that nothing can be done for this but this is entirely not the case. Send your child to the foot and ankle specialist for a complete evaluation, which will include radiographs, a biomechanical exam, and shoe assessment. Treatment may be as simple as a custom orthotic, or as advanced as minimally invasive flatfoot reconstructions. This may help to prevent adult onset arthritis, plantar fasciitis, heel spur formation, bunions and hammertoes, and pain in the knees and lower back later in life, with nice straight functioning feet.North, Central and East Naples: 239-430-3668 www.NaplesPodiatrist.com How do parents discover that their child has PEDIATRIC FLAT FOOT?DR.

ADARVEDPM DREAMING ALONG STATE ROAD 80BY SCOTT SIMMONS SSIMMONS@FLORIDAWEEKLY.COMSTATE ROAD 80 WAS HOT, AND MAMAS 1963 OLDSMOBILE DID NOT HAVE AIR CONDITIONing. But the breeze sang through the vent windows of that blue 88 sedan as it headed east from Fort Myers to LaBelle and on to Clewiston and South Bay, where Daddy was operating a crane to build the Royal Fertilizer plant. At a certain point, the car got warm and Mama pulled the handle on the floor vent, which opened with a whoosh! and the warm air rose up from the asphalt. It was hot but at least the air was moving. The speedometer read and life was good. It was 1968 or so, and the Glades was a magical place where people answered with sir and maam, and where seemingly everyone doted on Fred Simmons grandson that little blond boy they said had a Yankee accent. One might shop at Mr. Kahns clothing store on Avenue A in Belle Glade, then scoot across the canal for pie and coffee at The Dixiana Grille, or shop for dinnerware and appliances at Boes in Pahokee, then relax over a sundae at Herricks Drug Store at the corner of Bacom Point and Palm Beach roads. Or head for the highway to West Palm Beach, where the large, new Palm Beach Mall beckoned with department stores and restaurants. More than 40 years later, an old-timer needs to squint during visits to the Glades. Squinting allows one to focus on not what is there, but rather what was there. Through the soft-focus, one can see past the botched additions and blotchy paint jobs and remember the manicured lawn of Grandpa Fred Simmons and Miss Beulas tidy little green house in Chosen, a neighborhood of Belle Glade that Beula, his second wife, never, ever should have chosen for herself, if only because of the steady rumble of traffic on nearby State Road 715. Come winter, the air was hung thick with the ash from the sugar cane fires and was sweet with the stench of the bagasse mulling at the sugar mill. That much is still there. Beula hated that, and said it irritated her allergies. Its why she left the Glades for Jupiter. But one whiff of that and I return to my childhood. More than 40 years later, my moms car leaves Chosen and heads north onto 715 toward Pahokee. Her Volvo station wagon is fully climate-controlled. She was in her 20s when we made that regular road trip from Fort Myers to the Glades, and when I look toward the drivers seat, I do not see a woman in her 70s. I still see the young mother who was anxious for her family. This was the area where my dad was raised, and she had much affection for his family. The road into Pahokee looks much as it did in the s and 0s, though the billboard that hailed the city as the home of country singer Mel Tillis is long gone. Elegant royal palms still mark the entrance to Pahokee. Theres the Beverly home, now home to Dr. Hatton, with pillars that remind you of Tara. Lawn jockeys guard the driveway, and you smile at the sight. Its still beautiful. Up the road sits another home that has all but collapsed. Turn right at the drugstore, then left onto Second Street and theres Tommie Lee DuBoses house. Squint, and you can see the beautiful daylilies and Gerberas she and her husband cultivated. Open your eyes and you see weeds. Turn right again, this time onto Banyan Avenue, squint, and Aunt Cleo Douthit walks out the side door of the house built by her husband, Bob. The screen door slams and its louvers clatter. Open your eyes and Cleo is gone, but you smile at the sight of a happy home. We take a photograph of the well-tended house built of heart pine and cypress to last the ages, and muse that its now 72 years old. The avocado trees Cleo started from seed are heavy with fruit. She and Bob would be proud. We pause and we look. Then my mom puts the car in gear and drives forward without looking back.

The Feminist Press. 287 pages. Trade paperback (oversized). $29.95.Helne Aylons astonishing book balances the two dimensions of her life that are expressed in its subtitle: My Jewish Orthodox Girlhood, My Life as a Feminist Artist. Its a magical book, not nearly as egocentric or in your face as one might expect at first glance. Thoughtful, properly proud and modestly grateful for the distance she has traveled on her unusual journey, Ms. Aylon mixes facts, feelings and meditation. Over and over, she adjusts the tension between these two identities identities that paradoxically poison and nourish one another. Young Helne loved her traditional household in the Boro Park section of Brooklyn. Even when she was feeling stifled or misperceived, which was often, she knew that her parents loved her deeply and had her best interests at heart. While her mother lacked the worldliness that this young girl craved and eventually attained, there was no doubt about her mothers essential goodness and the depth of her passionate caring. This particular Orthodox community invested significant resources in the education of its young females. Ms. Aylon absorbed an abundance of Jewish learning; however, there was little as a female that she could do with it. And she had plenty of questions that would not be truly heard or respectfully answered. Before she knew what feminism was, she was asking feminist questions. At bottom, the question is: How can a woman belong to a religion that disrespects (or seems to disrespect) women in its sacred writings and in its traditions? She married young (a successful arranged marriage) and had children young, but she was already drifting toward the educational opportunities that would stimulate her self-creation as an artist. This self-creation involved selecting her own last name. When her husband, a rabbi, died in his 30s, the young mother could not continue to wear her partly hypocritical mask of Orthodoxy. She admitted to, and began to act out her post-Orthodoxy self, moving more and more into the world of art and artists. She liberated herself socially and intellectually, while never forgetting the warm enclosure of her childhood home and community. Fighting with Jewish attitudes toward women, especially their place (or lack thereof) in ritual life and in scriptural modeling, she found a second religion in feminism, and in time she became a strong force in this arena. Her artworks, primarily multi-media installations, expressed this theme, as well as those of environmentalism and anti-war activism. A major part of Ms. Aylons journey as an artist took place in California, where she encountered many kindred spirits and forged mutually supportive relationships. However, Boro Park remained in her thoughts, as did her love-hate relationship with Jewish wisdom and as she felt it Jewish misogyny. In what is roughly the second half of the book, Ms. Aylons discussion of her artistic experimentation and growth is bolstered by a generous array of photographs that give readers some idea of the power of her installation art. Again and again, her particular post-Orthodox feminism combines with her other themes in highly original, powerful and daring visual compositions, works that are challenges both to her and to those who behold them. Some are inspired by Kabbalah, the mainstream of Jewish mysticism. Others involve technologies and materials that allow the installations to undergo change over time. Still others enact curative processes, such as redeeming the earth (in Jewish tradition, Tikkun Olam). Many of these projects such as sequences that assemble sacs of sand, stone and earth required not only visionary insight and purpose, but also physical exertion and potential confrontation. Her Earth Ambulance project, carried out near nuclear power facilities and military sites, expressed and connected anti-war and conservationist perspectives. For Ms. Aylon, such battles are truly womens work: housekeeping, nurturing and healing on a grand scale.More and more, her achievement was recognized with well-received gallery shows and exhibitions in public spaces. However, finding display venues for installation art is often far more difficult than finding space on a gallery wall. Often, Ms. Aylon means to be shocking shocking enough to wake people out of their slumbers and force them to confront major issues.The ongoing, mutating story of Ms. Aylons relationship with her mother and her Orthodox heritage binds together the passages of this attractive, uplifting and powerful memoir. This review appears in the current issues of the Federation Star (Jewish Federation of Collier County), LChayim (Jewish Federation of Lee and Charlotte Counties) and The Jewish News (Jewish Federation of Sarasota / Manatee).

Rabbi Irving Elson, the senior Jewish chaplain in the U.S. Navy, will conduct the installation. Rabbis Elson and Chorny have been friends and colleagues for more than 30 years, as they studied together at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York, and were both ordained in 1987. Rabbi Chorny received his undergraduate degree from Columbia University and holds a masters degree in Rabbinic literature. He came to Beth Tikvah in July 2012 after serving pulpits in London, Ontario, and Altoona, Pa. The first Latino student at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York in a couple of decades, Rabbi Chorny is passionately rooted in the beliefs, practices, commitments and traditions of the Conservative Movement. At Beth Tikvah, he has become an active partner with the congregations highly committed leadership, bringing vision and drive to perpetuate Jewish values, and providing leadership in the development of broader adult and family educational programs.

TOWN HALL TALKWaite, Waite, do tell me: Talking with an expert on the ConfederacyThe Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, Va., is a rich repository of history and rare mid-19th century American artifacts. It is housed, in part, in the White House of the Confederacy, which was saved from deterioration and a slide into dilapidation by a small group of influential Richmond women who were undaunted in their quest to save this monument of common American heritage for the generations. With the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg approaching this July and other timeless milestones barreling toward us in the next two years, it is incumbent upon us to understand where we have been, so that we may better understand who we are and where we are going. Enter S. Waite Rawls III, president and CEO of the museum. He is also, in my opinion, a reliable oracle for all who seek historical accuracy and anecdotal whimsy surrounding the events and people who are the very fabric of this complex and fascinating subject. Mr. Rawls is as passionate about all things Confederacy as he is knowledgeable. Through his tireless pursuit of historical truth surrounding the Civil War, he has profoundly altered the landscape of perception and transformed dates and battles into tangible stories about real people. Summer is a great time for travel. This summer I will visit the Museum of the Confederacy and relive history with Mr. Rawls and his staff. To help entice you to visit sometime, too, I asked Mr. Rawls a few questions and share his responses here. Q: As we mark the 150th anniversary of key Civil War battles and historical milestones, such as the Emancipation Proclamation, it seems only appropriate that we reacquaint ourselves with the issues that catapulted us into a conflict so fierce and destructive that we were, as a nation, quite literally, nearly torn apart. Would you remind us of one or two events that brought us to the brink of no return and ultimately caused otherwise peace-loving men to wage war against brethren? A: Two events stand out: First, John Brown led a raid into the South whose intention was to incite slave insurrection and kill slaveholders. The raid was planned and financed by Northern abolitionists and celebrated in the North, while the South saw Brown as a murdering terrorist. An almost perfect parallel is Osama bin Laden and the inevitable reaction to secure the homeland, with the result that we (the South in 1859; America in 2001) armed itself. The second was Lincolns failure to consider a compromise with the seceding states of the Deep South, despite concerted attempts by the Upper South to convince him that he could avoid a war. Q: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently referred to the attacks of 9/11 as being the greatest loss of life on American soil in modern history. As a rhetorical statement, this is essentially true. Historically, however, it is anachronistic. The tragic loss of life we witnessed that September day will never be forgotten. To put the Civil War in context, the unthinkable numbers that perished at Gettysburg and died as a consequence of the War Between the States were enormous and emotionally incalculable. How many of our fellow citizens were killed in these battles? Could you please provide us some statistical references to help us understand the magnitude of the losses?

Current estimates indicate that roughly 1 million people died during the war 3 percent of the population with more than half of them dying from disease. That total is more than in all other American wars combined. In the white South, there were 1 million men of military age. By the end of the war, almost a third of them were dead, a quarter of them were permanently maimed and three-quarters of them had been killed or wounded or captured at least once.Q: Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered to Gen. Ulysses S. Grant on April 9, 1865, at Appomattox Courthouse. It was a time to end hostilities and heal a nation divided and wounded in every conceivable manner. What was the most miraculous event surrounding this historic day? If it were not for the grit and fortitude of these two American heroes, might the war have raged on interminably, and at what cost? A: The American Civil War ended like no other internal conflict in world history. Gen. Lee, despite the desires of many of his men and those of Jefferson Davis, did not disperse his army into the hills to wage a continuing guerilla war. Gen. Grant did not imprison or hang the men who surrendered, despite the desires of some of his generals to continue to kill more rebels. Instead, the Federal army rendered a salute to the Confederates, who simply went home with the promise that they would not continue to fight. Thousands of lives and years of continuing suffering were saved by these two men.Q: The Museum of the Confederacys mission is to serve as the preeminent world center for the display, study, interpretation, commemoration and preservation of the history and artifacts of the Confederate States of America. Why is the preservation of this information and education about our unique national heritage so vital to our youth and our nation? A: There is a well-known expression that, Those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it. Somehow, we must preserve our history to allow that study; and that history must include the history of the South. At the top of my list of lessons to be learned is the danger of inflamed political rhetoric, like that which came from Boston and Charleston in 1860. The failure of politicians to compromise, as advised by people from Richmond and New York, is a recipe for disaster. In a democracy, the art of governing must be the art of compromise, not the art of brinksmanship. Rick Borman is the host of the Naples Town Hall Distinguished Speakers Series.

Sunlight glinted off the white heads of the two adults. Eagles have to be about 4 years old before they develop the characteristic white heads and tails that signal they are ready to breed. The tide was low. As we moved around to the mud flats we spotted a black crowned night heron still out hunting for breakfast, probably delayed by the rain. We also saw a reddish egret and many great blue herons as well as snowy egrets and little blue herons. The red tide had left some dead mullet floating, and the turkey vultures appeared to be doing shore duty clearing the bay of this smelly waste. As we approached the Rookery Tree, I was overjoyed to see more than a dozen active nests of giant egrets. The birds were resplendent with their green eye slashes and beautiful filmy breeding plumage.A distressing sightAs we drew closer to the spectacular sight, however, we saw a juvenile brown pelican dangling by fishing line from the tree. We approached the island and used some long-nosed pliers from our toolbox to cut the line. The pelican flopped down into the water and paddled away. We then freed more than 50 yards of fishing line from the tree so other birds would not become entangled when they come in to roost. Every evening more than 400 birds roost on this small island. We then went around the island to check on our freed pelican. He was swimming, but his wing appeared injured. We decided to attempt a rescue so we could take the pelican to the von Arx Wildlife Hospital at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. We made a plan and assembled a towel, boat hook and poncho. We also telephoned and asked someone to meet us back at the dock with a box for transporting the young pelican now named Valentino in honor of the day back to the wildlife hospital.To the rescueOne of our passengers, Art Corrales, wearing water shoes and shorts, volunteered to don the life preserver and try to capture the pelican. We followed Valentino as he moved toward a cove on the island. Mr. Corrales slipped off the front of the boat into two feet of water and succeeded in getting a towel over the pelican, wrapping it up and carrying it back to the Good Fortune II. Once the bird was on board, we wrapped it in a poncho and Art scrambled up the ladder to re-board. We headed back to the dock with our additional passenger on the front deck, firmly gripped inside the poncho. A Conservancy volunteer met us at the dock, and we transferred Valentino from the poncho to a critter carrier. He was ready for transport. The good news is Valentino only seems to have suffered some trauma to his wing and foot nothing serious, so everything should heal with time. There is a lesson here, however. Never just cut your line if it becomes tangled in the mangroves of Rookery Bay. Go into shore and pull it free. If we hadnt happened along, Valentino mostly likely would have died, as he was hanging upside down and could not free himself. All of our passengers were delighted that we had been able to rescue Valentino. Our hearts were happy, too, as we ended another cruise.About the Good Fortune IIPiloted by a Coast Guard certified captain and with an expert naturalist on board, Conservancy of Southwest Floridas Good Fortune II pontoon boat quietly plies the waters of Rookery Bay, taking passengers off the beaten path through one of the few remaining undisturbed mangrove estuaries in North America.

Bank turns shred party into pet partyIberiaBank on Marco Island invites residents and business owners to a shred party from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23. With services provided by Shred-It, its an easy way to safely and securely dispose of old bank statements, checks, contracts, junk mail and other documents. A $2 donation per box or bag is requested, with proceeds benefitting the Marco Island Big Flag maintenance account. An IberiaBank shred party is always about more than shredding, however. The special attraction at this one is a patriotic pet costume contest. Dress your furry friend in red, white and blue for the 11:45 a.m. parade that will be judged by Donna Fiala, Collier County commissioner; Chris Curle, former news anchor for CNN and ABC-TV stations in Washington, D.C., Atlanta and Houston; and Rick LoCastro, COO of Physicians Regional Healthcare System.

For more information, call 393-2400. Kittens, pups eligible for low-cost sterilizationOf the 70,000 puppies and kittens that are born in the United States every day, about half are accidents that could have been prevented by early age spay/ neuter surgeries. Confusion about the appropriate age to spay/neuter pets leads to oops litters that could have been preventable by sterilization between the ages of 4 and 6 months. In addition, early age spay/neuter is easier, faster and less stressful for the animal than waiting until he/she is older. With all of the above in mind, and in conjunction with the 19th annual Spay Day, the Collier Spay Neuter Clinic offers $40 spay/neuter surgeries for kittens and puppies ages 4 months and younger Feb. 25-28. Interested pet owners should call 514-7647. Appointment times are limited. Low-cost vaccinationsIn addition to spay/neuter surgeries, the Collier Spay Neuter Clinic provides low-cost vaccinations from 9 a.m. to noon on the last Friday of every month. Services include but are not limited to: Cats and kittens: Rabies, FVRCP (distemper), FELV (feline leukemia) and the FELV/FIV test Dogs and puppies: Rabies, bordatella (kennel cough), DHPP (distemper) and heartworm testing Vaccinations are administered on a first-come, first-served basis. For a complete listing of CSNC services and prices, visit www.collierspayneuter.org. For more information, call 514-7647. Parents, kids can make a splash in free water safety classes at the YRegistration is under way for YMCA Splash Week, a free water safety program for Collier County parents and their children ages 3-12. Daily 30-minute sessions will take place March 11-15 at the Greater Naples YMCA. Targeted at both children and parents, the sessions teach water safety skills along with YMCA core character values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Morning, afternoon and evening sessions are offered throughout the day to accommodate parents schedules. Since water safety has no one simple solution, drowning prevention means creating layers of protection for children and adults. Certified water safety lessons play an integral role in reducing a childs drowning risk, says Dr. Todd Vedder, chair of the Safe & Healthy Childrens Coalition of Collier County. Water safety lessons not only teach a life-saving skill but introduce children to healthy activity. Physical barriers impeding access to potential water hazards and up-to-date knowledge of CPR add to the core of effective drown-breaking measures, he adds. The goal of Splash Week is to teach children basic skills so they can be safe around water and at the same time provide public education to parents. The Y hopes to have more than 500 children participate in the upcoming session. Space is limited, and advance registration must be completed by Monday, March 4. Sign up at the Greater Naples YMCA at 5450 YMCA Road or at www.ymcapalms.org. For more information, visit the website or call 597-3148.

He has broken his legs and arms and fractured his neck and back multiple times. There is no cure, but Jacksons doctors are giving him infusions of a drug that helps strengthen his bones. He will need those infusions for the rest of his life. In a month or so, he and his family will travel to Montreal, Quebec, where Jackson will undergo surgery to implant rods in the tops of his legs in hopes that they will provide enough support for him to walk. Eventually, Jackson will have rods in his arms and lower leg bones as well. Eric and Jessica Crabtree, the owners of Art 41 gallery, are holding an art show and sale to benefit the Prince family from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23. Proceeds from the sale of paintings and prints will help pay for specialized equipment such as gait trainers, custom braces and a post-surgery car seat for Jackson, and will also defray some of the costs associated with the familys travels to Montreal. Art 41 gallery is in Park Shore Plaza, 4115 Tamiami Trail N. For more information, call 249-2205 or e-mail Ms. Crabtree at email@example.com.

The turquoise and white bike, a 2009 FLSTN Softail Deluxe thats never been driven, is on display at Harley-Davidson of Naples. It no doubt will be the center of attention at the Rotary Clubs third annual Grapes & Apes wine festival Saturday, March 23, at The Naples Zoo. Proceeds from raffle ticket sales go toward art and music scholarships for local high-school students. We are extremely fortunate to have been given this magnificent machine by Soozie Tyrell of the E Street Band, says Rotarian Jerry Wynn, who coincidentally mentioned the event to Ms. Tyrells brother-in-law, a Southwest Florida resident, as he was seeking sponsorships and auction/raffle items for the fundraiser. Ms. Tyrell, who sings and plays violin and guitar with the band, was presented with the motorcycle in August 2008 after performing at the Harley-Davidson 105th Anniversary Celebration in Milwaukee. She kept the Harley in storage, waiting for the right organization that would use it to fund art and music scholarships for high-school students. The bike, says Mr. Wynn, is a collectors dream, and documentation of one of the greatest American musical groups of all time. In addition to Mr. Springsteen, Mr. Clemons and Ms. Tyrell, the bike bears the signatures of Patti Scialfa, Steven Van Zandt, Garry Tallent, Roy Bittan, Nils Lofgren, Max Weinberg, Cindy Mizelle and Curtis King. Raffle tickets for $50 are available at Harley-Davidson of Naples or by calling Tony Mendes at 682-9040 or visiting www.rotarynaples.org. Purchase of a raffle ticket does not include admission to Grapes & Apes, nor is attendance at the fundraiser required to win.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 Charity health care an important part of NCHs missionAll of us at NCH are proud of the reputation weve earned over the years for our service and financial strength. An often-overlooked aspect of our contribution to the community is that NCH provides 97 percent of the hospital charity care in Collier County, according to the Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration.This is an important variable, particularly in relation to our financial strength and the care that our 638-member medical staff and their colleagues deliver. According to the most recent AHCA information, of the four hospitals in Collier County, the two NCH hospitals provide 80 percent of Medicaid hospital days.NCH is the only health-care system in Southwest Florida to be twice recognized by U.S. News & World Report as being best in the region. We have earned more than 100 other accolades for quality, including best cardiac care in Florida for a decade. In fact, our quality is such that a number of patients are, after searching around the country, deciding to travel to NCH for specialized services. In terms of financial strength, we have been able to grow despite our burden of charity care. Some argue that as a not-for-profit system, the fact that we dont pay taxes provides NCH with an advantage over for-profit hospitals. This is incorrect. If we were a for-profit, paying taxes and rewarding shareholders rather than shouldering the burden of indigent care, NCH would be far better off financially. The argument that the government pays for charity care and that for-profit hospitals subsidize not-for-profit community hospitals for charity care is a myth. That is not to say that we reject our responsibility to pay for those less fortunate. On the contrary, we should all understand that those of us with the resources or insurance to pay for health care have an obligation to help our neighbors who have no means to pay for such care. Indeed, its the responsibility of our 20-member board to ensure quality care for everyone whether they can pay or not and still retain the resources to grow our system to care for future generations. The board and all 3,800 employees, 638 affiliated medical staff and 1,200 volunteers who serve NCH have done an admirable job in ensuring that our bond ratings remain strong. (Moodys A2 and Fitch A were both reaffirmed last year.) But the reality is that with the economic future of health care so uncertain, our disproportionate share of charity care becomes a growing challenge. NCH is blessed with a generous community. We take seriously our mandate to continually become more efficient and leaner, as we continue to improve the quality of the care we deliver. What we ask is that all health-care providers not-for-profit and for-profit alike accept their fair share of community charity care. That way, all of us who are charged with this critical responsibility of keeping our community healthy can continue to create for our neighbors a steadily improving quality of life. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.

As Marco fundraiser approaches, cancer survivors share their stories BY CAMDEN SMITHSpecial to Florida WeeklySurvival is the ultimate battle. For Marco Island residents Mary Ann Pierson and Lisa Meurgue, the battle ignited a drive to help others beat cancer and formed a lasting bond between the two. Marco Island Clothing Company owner Joyce McFarland brought Ms. Pierson and Ms. Meurgue together to help her create the Hope Love Cure Fashion Show to benefit the Marco chapter of American Cancer Society. (Due in part to the three womens efforts, Marco Island, despite its modest population of 16,500 residents, has become a top fundraising location for ACS in the state of Florida.) Ms. Pierson vividly remembers the day in 1997 she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had a felt a lump in her left breast a couple of weeks before she was supposed to fly to Las Vegas for a vacation with several of her eight brothers and sisters. After her physician took a biopsy, he encouraged her to go ahead and travel and deal with the results when she returned. That, she says, is when her world sank. When the doctor walked into the room with a book on breast cancer, I knew ... The sinking feeling is really a sinking feeling that this just cant be happening. The big C, she recalls. Following chemotherapy and radiation treatment for her Stage One breast cancer, Ms. Pierson chose to have her left breast removed. Although the story is similar in Ms. Meurgues case both were diagnosed early, and both opted for a mastectomy after chemotherapy and radiation cancer was no surprise for her. She had already lost a sister to ovarian cancer, and her father is a survivor of the disease. She worried what her cancer would mean for her three daughters (at the time, Margaux was 16; Alexandra, 14; and Emmanuelle, 10). I found out on a Friday and it was eating me up, Ms. Meurgue remembers. I told my husband I couldnt keep this secret, so that Sunday night we took our two older daughters into our bedroom and told them. We decided not to tell the youngest immediately. As she talks about her bout with Stage Two breast cancer, it sounds less like a battle and more like a hiccup in life, but it was enough of a bump that she has dedicated herself to supporting others with cancer. I belong to two clubs, Ms. Meurgue says. The first club is the one no one wants to belong to the club where they tell you you have cancer. Then, I belong to another club that anyone who has been told they have cancer wants to belong to the survivor club. After chemotherapy and radiation, Ms. Meurgue chose to undergo a double mastectomy followed up with eight months of reconstruction. Toward the end of her reconstruction in October 2009, while she was still recovering, she and Margaux walked 26 miles in Avons Walk for Breast Cancer in New York City. They made the trek at Margauxs request, and the teen encouraged her mother every step of the way, even when Ms. Meurgue, still weak, wanted to give up. Since then Ive taken Alexandra and in 2014, when Emmanuelle turns 16, she will go with me to share in this new family tradition, the proud mother and survivor says.About the fundraiserMs. Pierson and Ms. Meurgue are sharing their stories in support of the upcoming Hope Love Cure Fashion Show. Ms. Meurgue and her husband, Denis, will host the third annual luncheon event at their Marco Island restaurant Bistro Soleil on Tuesday, March 5.Its a great afternoon for women to get together and have a good time and in celebration of survivorship and the memory of those who are no longer with us, she says.

BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickYears ago when I started training dogs, I couldnt have imagined doing so without a slip-lead collar, commonly known as a choke collar. These days, I cant remember the last time I put one on a dog, and I may never feel the need to do so again. Thats because the options for training and control have changed, and are now easier on dog and owner alike. The choke chain was never without problems. In the old days, the important thing to remember was to never leave the collar on your dog unless you were training or walking. It is, after all, a choke collar, and over the years Ive heard from readers whose dogs died when the collar rings became caught on the tooth of another dog in play, on a piece of fencing in the yard or even a heater grate in the house. In other cases, dogs were injured and traumatized, and the owners who saved their lives by getting them free of the collars deadly grip were often bitten by their terrified dogs. This is what it has come down to, for me: If your dog is wearing a choke-chain collar as his everyday collar, replace it with a buckle or snap-together collar today. And then, like many trainers and behaviorists, I advise that when you take that chain collar off, you throw it away. Some good dog trainers still use slipstyle collars and leads, at least some of the time, and theyre still the top choice for almost escape-proof handling in veterinary hospitals. But this is a piece of equipment thats nearly impossible for the average dog owner to use properly. When the collar isnt used properly, its ineffective at best, and cruel at worst. There are only two ways to put on a choke-chain collar: with the moving end over the dogs neck (as intended), or under the dogs neck (incorrect). By the simplest law of averages, youd think folks would get them on right half the time, but it never seems to work that way. When the moving part of the chain is under the dogs neck, the chain doesnt release easily when the leash is slackened. And that means the collar is constantly tight, choking the dog. Even if the collars put on correctly, the choke collar is very difficult to use in the way that expert dog trainers have over the years. A choke-chain collar is meant to be loose at all times, except for the occasional split-second tightening to correct a dogs behavior. But people dont seem to know that, so I am always seeing gasping dogs in tight choke chains dragging their owners behind them. These days, my advice on choke chains is this: Dont bother. Get the help of a good trainer to choose training equipment thats not so hard to master and learn how to use it. For some dogs, a buckle or snap-together collar will be all you need, or a limited-slip collar known as a martingale. For others, a head halter or front-clip harness will work best. The pinch collar has advocates, too. It looks horrific, but it cant tighten down to choke a dog the way a slip-lead collar can. Theyre all easier for the average person to use, and less likely to cause unintentional harm than a slip-lead collar. And thats why after so many years of giving advice, Ive changed my recommendation on this topic. You simply dont need to master the choke-chain collar to teach any old dog new tricks anymore. PET TALESOff the chainFor most dog owners, the choke collar is a poor choice The slip-lead or choke-chain collar has been used for generations, but better options for training and control are available today. www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA30 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 1839 San Marco Road, Marco Island 239-394-1670 >>Charlie is a funloving Labrador/chow mix whos about 2 years old.

B6 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE LOCAL BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE INDUSTRIES BSECTIONWEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 The late chicken baron and franchise pioneer best known as Colonel Sanders once taught James P. Gyarmathy to cook a bird Kentucky Fried-style at his fathers restaurant in Clearwater. After driving up in his Rolls-Royce, Harland David Sanders provided a cooking demonstration and asked for royalties of a nickel a chicken. He was really a salesman more than anything else, recalls Mr. Gyarmathy, who now owns 10 KFCs in Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties, as well as two Famous Daves barbecue restaurants. And a good cook, he adds. Franchise companies have exploded in growth since his father invested in fried chicken in the early 1960s, offering investor-owner-operators a proven, money-making business model already honed by years of trial and error.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 239-434-0300 www.aemc.cc American Eagle has the Solution! MONEY & INVESTINGTaxes becoming a matter of location, location, location Taxes have always been an important factor in preserving wealth and improving after-tax investment and income returns. But in 2012-13, all sorts of taxes have become a much bigger part of the wealth equation, not just in the U.S., but also in France, Germany, Great Britain and Japan. The common denominator of these countries? A developed GDP saddled with a large, current budget deficit, future large deficits tied to entitlements for an aging population and existing large outstanding sovereign indebtedness. Increased taxation in developed countries sells quite well to voters who benefit from (and/or who hold to the ideologies of) sovereign budgetary largesse. Increases in taxation are more pronounced in U.S. states and cities, which lack capacity to issue debt to finance their deficits; absent budget cuts, these municipalities increase tax on their domiciled citizenry and anyone doing business within their territory. With the global trend toward increased taxation becoming deeply entrenched, the wealthy and middle-income earners need to revisit their strategies for income, investment and estate tax minimization. This global pattern of increasing taxation provides a meaningful diversion from the underlying problems of low GDP growth and high unemployment, which remain uncured by runaway sovereign spending. As best stated by Martin Armstrong, an international economist, Raising taxes LOWERS economic growth because government NEVER spends money efficiently. Only the private sector spends money to make money. Taking money away from investors ALWAYS reduces economic growth To create booming economies, it requires the concentration of capital seeking economic gain that furthers the whole of society. (www.ArmstrongEconomics.com.) Armstrongs blog often posts updates on which countries are doing what? In September, France announced a 75 percent tax band for those earning more than 1m a year. Eleven of the 27 EU countries have adopted a financial transactions tax (0.1 percent for shares and bonds and 0.01 percent for derivatives) There is movement in Great Britain to adopt a mansion tax on m properties. In the U.S., Obamacare imposed an investment tax and, in January, estate and income taxation levels were changed. How are wealthy people reacting to tax increases? Some notables are voicing that changes will be made in their lives, often their domicile. Mr. Armstrong notes some of the biggest headlines on this topic: Frances richest man, Bernard Arnault, head of the LVMH luxury group, is relocating to Belgium, thought to be the first step before applying for residency in tax haven Monaco. One of Facebooks four largest shareholders, Eduardo Saverin, renounced U.S. citizenship immediately before the Facebook IPO. A variety of sports stars are also taking steps to protect their assets. Boxer Manny Pacquiao wants to fight Juan Manuel Marquez in China or Singapore to avoid high U.S. taxes. Hall of Fame golfer Phil Mickelson says, There are going to be some drastic changes for me because I happen to be in that zone that has been targeted both federally and by the state If you add up all the federal and you look at the disability and the unemployment and the Social Security and state, my tax rate is 62, 63 percent. ... So Ive got to make some decisions on what to do. Source: NY Times, Jan. 20, 2013.) So, take notes from Phil: maybe you, too, need to make some drastic changes in your tax planning. Snowbirds might decide to finalize a change in state domicile, from a high taxation state to a no income taxation state (e.g., Florida.) However, it might be that Obamacares shift of medical costs to states will force some no-income tax states into low levels of taxation.) Surely, New Jerseys exit tax is a tax strategy likely under consideration by other northern states in similar straits. Second, you will need to rethink investment/income/gains strategies and consider how some of this cash inflow can be restructured as a return of capital or taxed at a lower bracket.Third, you will need to reconsider your estate plan in light of changed U.S. estate taxation levels and even more so if you have had changes in family circumstances, changes in laws, and even changes in ones philosophy regarding wealth transfers Some of these dynamic circumstances include: changes in wealth, later-life marriages and remarriages... Any life changes in this increasingly complex environment may increase the likelihood that your estate plan will need some sort of change or fix over the years. Evidently, what is thought to be cast-in-stone /irrevocable trusts can still be changed. (Clarfeld, Spring 2012, Advanced Tax and Estate Planning Report, www.clarfeld.com.)A frequently visited theme of this money column has been portfolio protection: focusing on asset allocation such that, come economic rain or shine, portfolios are protected. Some recommended alternative asset allocations are perceived to be higher risk than equity and bonds, but they have historically performed well in a time of crisis. But now there is a new crisis impacting portfolios: taxation. It will remain a big planning problem for a long time as city, state and federal governments have become increasingly aggressive in their taxation reach. It might be best to talk with your adviser and bring your tax expert into the dialogue. But beware! You will likely be creating new entities and trusts and changing docs and paying big bucks. You really need to be in the hands of top-notch professionals. Otherwise you might be digging an expensive, awkward and deep financial hole for yourself.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Market Mis-TimingMany financial pundits like to predict what the market will do in the near future as they urge you to buy or sell now. Unfortunately, theyre often wrong. No one can consistently and accurately know what the market will do in the short term. In the long term, though, the trend is clear: The market rises. In a famous study, University of Michigan finance professor H. Nejat Seyhun found that an investment held in the stock market from 1926 through 2004 would have delivered an average annual return of 10.4 percent, turning $1 into $1,919. But get this: He also found that if you were out of the market (i.e. not invested in it) for the markets 12 bestperforming months, your average annual return would be only 7 percent. If you sat out the 48 best months, youd be down to a mere 2.7 percent, turning your dollar into $6.46. Miss just the 10 worst days and your annual average jumps to 12.8 percent. Much of the markets gains can occur on just a few days. So anyone who tries to time the market risks missing out on substantial profits. Sure, by being out of the market on the worst days, youll improve your returns but no one can correctly predict when those worst days will occur. Another problem with market timing is that it can be expensive. Getting in and out of investments frequently can leave you with short-term capital gains (if youre lucky to have avoided losses) that are typically taxed at a higher rate than long-term gains. Frequent trading can generate lots of commission fees, too. Over the long run, its usually more hazardous to your wealth to be out of the stock market than to be in it. By hanging on, youll be in the market on days when it counts and be able to ride out occasional downturns. One good strategy is to regularly invest in the market, no matter whether its up or down, perhaps through a broad-market index fund. Learn more at fool.com/60second/indexfund.htm and indexfunds.com. Investments That Keep GivingUpon graduation from high school in 1941, my first job was as an office boy at DuPont. At Christmas my boss handed me a present of $25, equal to a third of my monthly salary. No one has ever spent as many hours on calculations and projections as to how such a windfall should be invested. The result: I purchased a lifetime subscription to Readers Digest. By age 80, that had averaged out to 3.4 cents per issue. D.W., Solvang, Calif.The Fool Responds: Thats a great reminder that some of the best kinds of purchases and investments are ones that keep giving for a long time. These include lessons, travel, and even stocks and bonds, as they can expand our skills, knowledge, experiences and wealth. A great dividend-paying stock, for example, can keep generating income for decades, while it appreciates in value. For instance, Procter & Gamble has been paying dividends for 122 consecutive years and raising them for 56 consecutive years. IBM has been paying quarterly dividends since 1918. (The Motley Fool owns or has recommended both companies in its newsletters.)Clear as GlassThink Corning and you might think glass, but theres much more to this hightech giant. Its in the business of specialty glasses and ceramics, supplying fiberoptic networks, LCD television makers and more. Glass has been around for thousands of years, but Corning keeps innovating. Its robust Gorilla Glass is now found on millions of mobile phones and tablets, and it has recently introduced Willow Glass, which is thin and flexible. Gorilla Glass is present on more than 1 billion devices from more than 33 brands. The latest version of it is reportedly 50 percent stronger than the last version, and will hide some 40 percent of scratches from the naked eye. All is not rosy at Corning right now, though, with profit margins shrinking recently and debt inching up (though its cash is plentiful). But sales of televisions are expected to pick up in 2013, and mobile devices are proliferating rapidly. Cornings future is likely to be brighter than its present. Analysts expect the company to grow by about 12 percent annually over the next five years, so with its recent priceto-earnings (P/E) ratio of 10 and its forward P/E near 8, Cornings stock seems rather attractively valued. It even offers a dividend, recently yielding 3 percent. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Corning and its newsletters have recommended it.) Founded in 1922 and based in Bloomington, Ill., I insure more homes and cars than any other company in the United States, and Im a top insurer in Canada, too. I was recently ranked in the top 50 of the Fortune 500. You cant buy stock in me because Im a mutual company, owned by my policyholders. I have more than 65,000 employees and some 17,800 agents and handle almost 35,000 claims daily, serving 81 million policy and account holders. I offer banking services and mutual funds, too. A safety advocate, I helped pass several seat belt laws. Who am I? (Answer: State Farm) The Annual ScoopQDo annual reports indicate how overvalued or undervalued a companys stock is? R.N., Jacksonville, Fla.ANot usually, but youd do well to read your holdings annual reports anyway. If youre a novice, at least read the CEOs letter to shareholders, which offers a sense of management character and the companys strategic plan. The financial statements can be even more informative. The balance sheet will show you the firms financial health at one point in time, including its cash, money it owes, money owed to it, etc. The income statement (sometimes called the statement of operations) shows sales, costs and profits over a period of time, while the statement of cash flows will list all of the companys cash inflows and outflows during the period. The more familiar you become with financial statements (perhaps just by reviewing many of them), the better chance your portfolio will have of performing well. Annual reports dont focus on companies valuations, though. For that, you can look up a companys current market value easily via online stock quotes. Just click over to a site like finance.yahoo.com, type in a companys name or ticker symbol, and look for market capitalization (or market cap). You can also calculate it yourself by multiplying the current stock price by the number of shares outstanding.A companys intrinsic, or fair, value is a more elusive beast. Different analysts will come up with different numbers using different assumptions about the firms growth prospects, among other things. ***QWhat are basis points? C.C., Niwot, Colo.AA basis point is 1/100th of a percentage point. So if you hear that some interest rate is down 25 basis points, that means its down a quarter of a percentage point.Got a question for the Fool?

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEB. 21-27, 2013 B7 CHAMBER MATTERSCollier business climate survey is under way for the third year BY COTRENIA DAVENPORT HOODSpecial to Florida WeeklyThe Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce annually hosts the Collier County Business Climate Survey to assess key executives perception of the overall business conditions in Collier County, to identify key concerns and issues facing existing businesses in Collier County and to help predict trends and expectations for growth. For the past two years, Markham Norton Mosteller Wright & Company, P.A., an accounting and consulting firm, has sponsored the survey under the direction of Jim Warnken, then the firms senior consultant. The company also analyzed the data and reported the results in Business Currents, the chambers monthly publication. The results were also featured at one of the chambers monthly Wake Up Naples events. This years survey launched in mid-February and closes in early March. Once it is complete, the chamber will host focus groups from Collier County target industries including: information technology, health care, insurance, finance, construction, retail, law, manufacturing and the arts. Elaine Reed, executive director of the Naples Historical Society, will serve as facilitator. After the data is analyzed, the survey will be the subject of a feature in the April issue of Business Currents. In addition to making the survey the subject of the March Wake Up Naples meeting, the chamber will also host a symposium in April to share the results with the local business community. Leading the survey is Aysegul Timur, Ph.D., chair of business administration and public administration programs at the Johnson School of Business, Hodges University. The university will serve as the repository for all future Collier County data. Guiding the survey is a committee chaired again by Mr. Jim Warnken, who now serves as vice chair of the chamber and CFO of the United Way of Collier County. Ms. Reed is on the committee along with Joe Paterno, executive director of Southwest Florida Workforce Development Board. The committee is dedicated to assuring that the Collier survey will be included in Southwest Florida regional business attraction efforts. Led by Michael Wynn, chamber chair and CEO of Sunshine Ace Hardware, and Edward Morton, past chamber chair and managing director of Wasmer, Schroeder & Company, the Partnership for Colliers Future Economy has joined with Lee Countys Horizon Council and Florida Gulf Coast University to enhance our regions attractiveness to new and expanding businesses. The effort is a Naples chamber initiative. First steps include work to help FGCU become the center for all regional data needed to attract new companies to Southwest Florida. Other survey questions are related to company demographics, workforce development and business climate. Cotrenia Davenport Hood is vice president for business development and staffs The Partnership for Colliers Future Economy of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce.

But even with a proven business model, wearing the many hats of ownership is more complicated than it looks, said Gene Barber, franchise director for Jasons Deli. And entrepreneurs who are naturally disposed to surviving with their own wit, Mr. Larrabee noted, will find that signing a franchise agreement also means towing the company line in the name of consistency, like it or not. Mr. Gyarmathy, for instance, never agreed with changing the name from Kentucky Fried Chicken to KFC back in the 1990s to de-emphasize the word fried. He lives with it. Its fine, people know what it is, he said. KFC is still Kentucky Fried Chicken. Growth after recession In Southwest Floridas Congressional District 19, there were 1,517 franchised businesses in 2007, creating 36,000 jobs, according to the International Franchise Association. Since then, franchisees that took a hit in the Great Recessions aftermath are expanding again. Suzy Woods, a California Closets franchisee, was running a $5 million per year business at its peak during the boom. Sales are slowly climbing back to that realm, said Ms. Woods but this time more slowly, w hich may actually be good for her business. It was growing so fast, she said, and not being able to have the systems and processes in place weve certainly had the opportunity to do that and fix that over the last couple of years. Besides her showroom at the Miromar Design Center in Estero, shes working on opening a new showroom in Naples at the Hibiscus Center. The company sells closets and home organization materials of all kinds as well as expert interior design services. Scott and Diana Willis, who own five Jasons Deli franchises in Sarasota, Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties, said the depth and duration of the recession was unexpected. But they, too, are considering opening one or two more Southwest Florida locations in the next 18 months. The couple opened their first location in Fort Myers 11 years ago. None of us could have predicted it would have been so bad, Mrs. Willis said of the recession. They survived by deciding to not change, to not cut corners on quality or portions, to increase their involvement in the community, including helping feed the hungry and take care of employees. Taking care of them was the best business approach, just knowing we were all in it together, Mrs. Willis said. And Mr. Gyarmathy just opened a new Famous Daves in December at Gulf Coast Town Center and is planning to open in Naples a smaller, quick-service version of the sit-down restaurant. Mr. Gyarmathys only sibling, a brother, owns Wendys franchises in Central Florida. Their father passed away 14 years ago, he said, longer after retiring with the funds from a profitable KFC enterprise. His mother will be 95 in June. Still sharp as a tack, he said. She calls me up to ask political questions.Big businessFranchising has become an industry that generates more than half a trillion dollars in sales every year, according to IFA. And Florida is a leader among the states in franchise businesses. More than 1.1 million or about 12.5 percent of all private non-farm jobs were created by franchises here as of 2007, the latest numbers available. The figure includes both full and part-time positions. Thats third in the nation behind California and Texas. Projections on how the industry has fared since then show slow, steady growth coming out of the recession with 162,000 jobs being created nationally by franchises this year, the IFA says. The rapid growth of franchises in the last 50 years is mostly apparent in quick-service eateries, but also in numerous other businesses. The IFA lists 75 categories of franchise under every letter in the alphabet except for D,N,Q,U,Y and Z. Typically when people think of franchising, they think of food and beverage related, but there are all kinds, said Robert Zarco, a Miami franchise attorney. That doesnt mean theyre all successful, of course. One of the common mistakes people looking at buying into a franchise make, said Mr. Barber of Jasons Deli, is that they dont ask enough of the right questions or tough questions. He adds that talking with other franchisees, both successful and struggling ones, is important when doing due diligence. Mr. Gyarmathy agrees. Most people are very willing to share their grief and share their glories, either one, he said. Ownership styles Franchisees take different approaches to ownership. Some owners are mostly in it for the investment, Mr. Gyarmathy concedes, taking a hands-off approach similar to buying stocks. The real money to be made in most free standing restaurants like KFC or whatever, its the real estate, he said. If you get into the real estate at the right time which would be now and hold it for 10 or 20 years youll make money. Its sort of a common joke among franchisees is the big money is in the land. Some companies, though, look for specific qualities in owners. Buying into a Jasons Deli franchise takes an investment of roughly $300,000 for one location and $1 million in savings. Its not just an investment, said franchise director Mr. Barber. Thats not who we are. Instead, the company looks for franchisees like Mr. and Mrs. Willis, who are integral parts of running the restaurants: true owner-operators. Mrs. Willis makes a habit of making the rounds and talking to her staff as she visits the restaurants. Her favorite part of the job, and she adds the most challenging, is doing the work at the deli as its running: Truly a day in the deli is the best day thats where the magic happens. Less magical but no less keys to success, she adds, are many other hats they wear. Advertising deadlines, negotiations with a landlord, and employee health insurance questions are examples of some other concerns that occupy their time. With hundreds of stores in the United States, Jasons is a small organization compared to a fast-food chain with thousands of restaurants. That helps keep lines of communication open with upper management, Mrs. Willis said, and allows owners to have their say with corporate culture. Mr. Gyarmathy observed that larger franchises sometimes insulate themselves from reality and live in the marketing fantasy land of surveys and studies and they try to make decisions based on that information. A smart franchise will say, lets listen to our franchisees, what do they think? That doesnt mean there arent disagreements with the company on the details of day-to-day operations, added Mrs. Willis of Jasons Deli. Sometimes we agree to disagree, she said. But I think thats healthy. SCALINGFrom page 1 EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYScott and Diana Willis own five Jasons Deli restaurants.

MLS#213005703NABOR numbers indicate 2012 momentum continues SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe housing market momentum established in 2012 is continuing in 2013 as home sales remain strong. The overall median closed price increased 16 percent, and the overall closed sales increased 10 percent for the 12-months ending January 2013, according to the latest report from the Naples Area Board of Realtors, which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). Our market research demonstrated a steady demand for existing homes, and the new home market is doing well as indicated by a recent report from FGCU, which showed an increase in permits for Collier County, says Wes Kunkle, NABOR president and managing broker of Weichert, Realtors on the Gulf. The NABOR January report provides annual comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the SunshineMLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Among the specifics in the report: The overall median closed price increased 16 percent, from $179,000 at the end of January 2012 to $207,000 for the 12-month period ending January 2013. Overall pending sales increased 13 percent, from 9,456 units to 10,681 units for the 12-month period ending January 2013. Overall pending sales increased 35 percent in the $300,000 to $500,000 category, from 1,225 units to 1,652 units; 35 percent in the $500,000 to $1 million category, from 892 units to 1,200 units; and 22 percent in the $1 million to $2 million category, from 408 units to 497 units, respectively, for the 12-month period ending January 2013. The average days on the market decreased overall, from 173 days in January 2012 to 161 days in January 2013. Overall pending sales in the Naples coastal area increased 36 percent, from 1,555 units to 2,112 units, and closed sales increased 16 percent, from 1,638 units to 1,893 units, for the 12-month period ending January 2013. The strong performance in the housing market is consistent with improvements we are seeing in other aspects of the economy, especially the stock market, says professor Tim Allen of Florida Gulf Coast University. The housing market is benefitting from the general economic improvement coupled with relatively low mortgage rates, he explains. Adding to the increasing sales activity in the market is the return of Real Estate Investment Trust purchases, says John Steinwand, president and principal broker at Naples Realty Services. These national REIT's are buying single-family homes and betting on a higher level of appreciation for future re-selling, he says. To view the entire report, visit www. NaplesArea.com.

Ive noticed that the people here have a warmth and politeness to them, especially the Southern gentlemen. This, I think, is the place to meet a man. So I couldnt help but laugh this morning as I read the Rant & Rave section of the local paper. This is a rant to being a single female in (South Carolina), one woman wrote. It is probably one of the most frustrating things for my friends and me. We are all well-educated, beautiful and successful ladies, yet we cant seem to find any male counterparts to date. I shook my head. Could that be true in this state, where every man holds the door for you? Ive heard the same complaint about the lack of good men in New York, a city that at least has statistics in its defense. There truly are more single women than men in New York, and the city does run on an I-can-dobetter mentality, which makes finding a man less difficult than keeping him. But now I have to wonder how many of those complaints were real and how many were the products of our own myth-making. Some time ago, fed up with the dismal romantic scene in New York, a good friend left the city for Oklahoma, predicting that her chances for love would be better in the heartland. Not surprisingly, they werent. A year and a half after her move, shes still single. Now she rants about the dating scene in Oklahoma the way she once ranted about the dating scene in New York. For a long time I was convinced that women like her and the ranter from South Carolina werent meeting good men because of their own questionable personalities. Perhaps they needed to be better listeners or kinder partners. Maybe, I thought, they just werent good girlfriend material. But now Ive come to a different conclusion. When I was younger and frequently dateless, I could pass an entire day with my single girl friends complaining about the sad state of dating in Florida. We said there werent enough men our age, not enough men with our interests. We bemoaned our bad luck in living in such a romantic wasteland. The truth, of course, is that there were plenty of good men out there. Just like there are plenty of good men in New York. And South Carolina. Ive come to realize that bemoaning the dating scene is a way to justify avoiding it all together. As long as we are complaining to our friends over brunch, over dinner, over a rented movie then we dont have to be out there trying to find a partner. In fact, Ive found that the people who complain the most about their romantic prospects are often the ones who are least likely to be out on the dating scene. I guess Ill just crawl back in bed with my copy of Fifty Shades of Grey, the ranter from South Carolina concluded her piece. Which I imagine is exactly what she did. o r t m w t artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEB. 21-27, 2013 C3 Naples Museum of Art pleased to make a permanent home for The Mouse House SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Patty & Jay Baker Naples of Museum of Art announces that The Mouse House, Olga Hirshhorns small but powerful collection of the intimately-sized works she collected to fill her diminutive, art-packed carriage house in Washington, D.C., will become part of the museums permanent collection. The Mouse House has been on loan and installed at the Naples museum since 2009. Among the 200-plus works included in Ms. Hirshhorns gift are everything from Greek, Chinese and pre-Columbian antiquities to prints, drawings and paintings by important 19th and 20th century masters. Many of the 20th century pieces are personally inscribed by the artist: a 1963 de Kooning is inscribed, To Olga, Love Bill; a 1968 Picasso bears the legend, Pour Olga, son ami Picasso (For Olga, her friend Picasso); a 1965 Niki de St. Phalle is simply inscribed To Olga. A number of works were gifts from the artists including minuscule Calders and Giacomettis obtained while socializing with the artists in Paris and on the Riviera. Olga Hirshhorns collection includes pristine works of art that hold a remarkable art historical relevance as well as an important anecdotal quality, says Frank Verpoorten, museum director and chief curator. It richly illustrates the passionate life of a keen collector with a distinctive personality. Ms. Hirshhorn is the widow of Joseph H. Hirshhorn, founding donor of the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. While her husband bought breathtaking large-scale works, Olgas predilection for small objects led her to acquire sketches and idiosyncratic, personal expressions that reveal the artists working methods and the close contact she had with them. As she has stated elsewhere: This collection represents a lot of friendships that we established early on, but it also teaches us about how artists think, how they work. Ive learned a lot from living with these objects. Though The Mouse House is a modern-day version of the 17th century cabinet of curiosities a small room or cabinet in which collectors crowded objects of virtue and curiosity from the arts and natural sciences it is distinguished from those cabinets in that, far from random, it includes works that truly define a particular artist, style or era. The collection includes six Picassos, four de Koonings, five Calders, five Man Rays and single pieces by Georgia OKeeffe and Salvador Dal, as well as works by 19th century giants James Abbott McNeil Whistler, Antoine-Louis Barye, Honor Daumier and Auguste Rodin, among others. Ms. Hirshhorn has made Naples her second home for decades. Her gift of The Mouse House to the local museum not only establishes an enduring connection between Ms. Hirshhorn and our city, it demonstrates her strong support of our mission and her confidence in our vision for the future, says Kathleen van Bergen, president and CEO of the Philharmonic Center for the Arts. Seven artists open studios for visitorsFriends of the Patty & Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art present the 18th annual Artists Studio Tour on Sunday and Monday, March 3-4. Participants will visit the homes and studios of several nationally acclaimed local artists and can purchase works directly from them. This years participating artists are: Ran Adler, Alina Eydel, Muffy Clark Gill, Lulu, Karen Stone, Lynn B. Wilcox and Patsy Reeves. Cost is $50 per person for the Sunday tour, which includes refreshments. Mondays tour is $65 per person and includes lunch. Patron tickets for either day are $100 ($35 tax deductible). Proceeds benefit the Patty & Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art to help pay for transportation to the museum for school groups as well as for lectures, exhibitions and the endowment. For reservations or more information, call 597-1900 or visit www.thephil.org.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 Seventeen men and women, ranging in age from their teens to their 50s, are dancing with walkers. Right now theyre dressed in loose clothing and dance shoes, with some wearing T-shirts of previous Naples Players shows: The Nutcracker Goes Pop! Shout! If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. When they perform on stage, however, theyll be in matching old lady costumes that were designed originally by Tony Award-winner William Ivey Long: gray wigs topped with pillbox hats, jackets with white lace collars over blue lace dresses, and white gloves. Theyre learning the steps to Along Came Bialy, the number that closes Act I. Choreographer Dawn Lebrecht Fornara stands in front of them. Nice and slow. Dont rush it, she tells them as they practice, in unison, the beginning steps, rapping their walkers on the floor. She assesses them before announcing, Of course, were going to do it faster. Lets do it a little faster! Part cheerleader and part drill sergeant, shes encouraging, yet firm and demanding. Then she has them do the steps while moving in a circular pattern. At one point, they have to turn around quickly and walk backward, still while holding onto the walkers. Its a tricky move. Then suddenly, theyre tap-dancing with the walkers. You have to be like a ninja a walker ninja! she exhorts. Next: the jumps, for which everyone grabs onto their walkers and literally kicks up their heels. Finally, as if that werent challenging enough, Ms. Fornara jumps up, sits on the right handle of her walker and crosses her legs, as though shes a chanteuse perched on a grand piano, about to sing a torch song. Everyone will have to master that move, too. Stage manager Rhoda Pugh watches their first attempts and turns to director Dallas Dunnagan. Im going to need more accident report forms, Ms. Pugh jokes. The cast keeps practicing with varying degrees of success. My armpits dont work like that, one complains. They go through the number from the beginning, this time singing the lyrics as musical director Charles Fornara (husband of the choreographer) accompanies them on an upright piano in the corner. Hunched over their walkers, they make old lady cackling noises as they move. Ms. Fornara calls a five-minute break, and the rehearsal room suddenly looks like Lourdes, full of abandoned walkers. Theres even a wheelchair and a cane in the far corner. The rehearsal walkers were borrowed from Cypress Lake High School in Fort Myers, left over from the schools production of The Producers. Ms. Dunnagan says that by opening night Feb. 27, the Players will have received walkers and other specialty pieces drops (the cloth backgrounds for various scenes) and things that are hard to get, such as the pigeon coop and the stacks of scripts that Max Bialystock reads on loan from the national tour. This is the first time The Naples Players have staged this show, which runs through March 30 and is already sold out through March 10. It certainly is huge. Its one of the bigger musicals weve done, not in number of cast, but in scope, Ms. Dunnagan says, pointing out that there are nine scene changes in Act I alone.Successful and off-colorThe Producers opened on Broadway in April 2001 and ran through April 2007, breaking box office records for single-day ticket sales not once, but twice. It also won 12 Tony Awards, including for Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score, Best Choreography, Best Scenic Design and Best Costume Design, setting a record for the most Tonys ever won by one musical. Mel Brooks, who wrote the music and lyrics and co-wrote the book with Thomas Meehan, based the show on his 1968 movie of the same name. Full of Mr. Brooks boundary-pushing humor, it revolves around an unscrupulous producer, Max Bialystock, and his accountant, Leo Bloom, who come up with what they think is a surefire plot for a financial windfall: Theyll raise money from little old ladies to put on the worst show possible, with bad actors and a clueless director. Then, when the show flops and closes, theyll run away with the $2 million they raised. The script they choose is called Springtime for Hitler: A Gay Romp with Adolf and Eva at Berchtesgaden. Its so absurd and camp that the audience thinks its a satire and Max and Leo are shocked to discover they have a raging success on their hands. Ms. Dunnagan describes the humor as off-color and sort of ribald just what everyone expects when Mel Brooks is involved. Its a lot of fun. It skirts tastelessness. The quote that you often read in the press is that its sure to offend everyone, in some form or another.Always funnyWhen Ms. Fornara returns from the short break, she says to the cast, who are individually practicing their steps: It sounds like a bowling alley up here! She calls everyone together and sounding just a like a faith healer, proclaims, OK, pick up your walker and walk! They sing the lyrics while going through the steps theyve learned so far. I know youre concentrating on the steps, but be careful not to sound like a kiddy choir, Mr. Fornara instructs them. The cast has the difficult task of dancing intricate steps while singing like little old ladies, yet making the lyrics clear. Its a lot to do all at once. Assistant director Carole Fenstermacher comes in to watch the progress theyve made. Im wetting my pants watching the rehearsals, because theyre so funny, she declares. Although theyve been heard many times before, the lines still get laughs. Even the dance theyre rehearsing tonight is funny, despite the fact that its still in its most rudimentary form. Well, what isnt funny about old women dancing with walkers? Ms. Dunnagan says later. Just the fact that theyre doing that in the first place is funny. And the athleticism of the number is diametrically opposed to what you expect.Falling overLaura Needle, most recently seen in the Players production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses earlier this season, plays one of the little old ladies. Its fun, she says. You bend a little bit, (and walk as if) something hurts in your knees. You get really happy because these little old ladies are getting sex from Bialy (in exchange for checks.) She also dances in the big Springtime for Hitler number, which has some inventive tapping and some incredible costumes. Its like the Follies, she says, adding, Im the Viking. I have shields for pasties. Ms. Fornara teaches the group a move where the ladies, all in a line, slooooowly f all over, creating a chain reaction as they knock one another down in succession, like lazy dominoes. One of the actors has some trouble falling correctly. Noticing his struggles, Ms. Fornara hastens to reassure him. Dont worry, she tells him. Itll be easier when youre in a dress, Mitchell. They practice the move again and again: a ripple effect of little old ladies toppling over in slow motion, pulling their walkers along with them.Cartoon dancingMs. Fornara portrayed the Swedish sex bomb Ulla in a production of The Producers in New Hampshire in 2009, so she knows all the steps from firsthand experience and from watching other numbers while standing in the wings every night. Her choreography is in the same vein, she says. Some of the steps are the same, but I try to change them. My mind works like a cartoon, she explains. I see something in cartoon form. (I love) the absurd. Its like Sponge Bob trumpets come out of my head. I think anything is possible, until someone tells me its not. She pauses before adding, Id love to see people flying in the theater. The steps all taught, she has the cast run through the entire number from the beginning. Bill Molesky, who plays Bialystock, joins the dancers. Co-star James Little, who plays Leo, observes from the doorway, joined by costume designer Dot Auchmoody. A trio of little old ladies sings: At the end of our rope / Wed given up hope / Of a roll in the hay / condemned to a life / of sitting and knitting / when all we really wanted was sex! / and then, along came Bialy! The gray-haired women tap with their walkers and defy gravity and age by leaping off the ground. They hand over their checks to Bialystock, flirting shamelessly. And then, they all fall over. Were having too much fun in rehearsals for it not to be fun on stage, Ms. Dunnagan says. Its Mel Brooks. What else can I say?

Unable to obtain the necessary paints and art supplies in his native Cuba, Mr. Llanes mastered the art of using coladito, or espresso, as an essential and aromatic ingredient to create his art. The move from oils and acrylics occurred by accident, when he spilled a steaming cup of coffee on one of his drawings and liked the rich shade of brown it produced. From that point on, coffee became more than just a drink to be enjoyed with friends and family at the end of the day, a cultural and social tradition in Cuba, and evolved into a whole new source of artistic inspiration. In a process similar to watercolor, Mr. Llanes prepares his palette by roasting different kinds of Cuban coffee that his mother sends him from the family home in Pinar del Rio, Cuba. The various shades of brown depend on the color of the bean and how much water is used to brew the pot. With these, the artist composes his nostalgic scenes of family and rural life in Cuba to celebrate the islands long cultural connection with Southwest Florida. Trained in the fine arts, Llanes came to the United States in 2007 and resides in Charleston, S.C., where he works with renowned artist and former Neapolitan Jonathan Green. The Spirit of the Coffee Bean will be on display March 1-April 25 at the Naples Depot Museum, 1051 Fifth Ave. S. An opening reception for the artist is set for 6-8 p.m. Friday, March 1. Attendance is free, and all are welcome. For more information, call the Collier County Museum at 252-6525 or visit www.colliermuseums.com.

Books, books and more books (and some movies) Nick Flynn wrote a best-selling memoir, Another Bullsh*t Night in Suck City, about how he worked with the homeless and how, one night, his father, whod long ago abandoned him and his mother, came into the shelter after living on the streets. Then Paul Weitz made a movie about it. (Being Flynn). And now Mr. Flynn has written a new memoir about what it was like seeing his memoir made into a movie. He calls it The Reenactments. This is almost like standing in a hall of mirrors. Its also a great opportunity to see how one story looks in two different genres, with a behind-the-scenes look at what the author thinks of it all. It was, for Nick Flynn, a surreal experience to see Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore portray his father and mother, replaying scenes from his life. It was also painful, because the film deals not only with his fathers downward spiraling, but with the younger Mr. Flynns own struggles with alcoholism and drug addiction, and his mothers suicide. Flynns style is lyrical, yet gritty, as if a streetwise boxer discussing Walt Whitman or the symbolism in MobyDick. His chapters are typically page-long paragraphs that often read like prose poems. He quotes everyone from Aristotle to Joan Didion to Samuel Beckett to Nietzsche. But his book is more than a retelling of how a movie was made about his life; its an examination of the nature of grief, consciousness, movies and memory.Reading about readingOften, people love to read about their profession. I know that writers flock to books about writing, and reporters love to read books featuring newspaper people. Apparently, the same is true for readers. People who love to read love to read books about others reading. And they can do that in spades with Katie Wards debut novel. Girl Reading is a series of stories, each one based on a painting, photo or image of a woman with a book. The British author came to Naples recently to speak to Elaine Newtons Critics Choice book group at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts. Paying $34 each, more than 950 book lovers attended two sessions. In this age of aliteracy, I find that heartwarming. Ms. Ward said she sees her book as a novel, not a collection of short stories, and that its seven components are intended to be read in order. Their settings range from the 14th century to the year 2060. Two-time Booker Award-winner Hilary Mantel has called Girl Reading a debut of rare individuality and distinction Ward is wise, posed, and utte rly original. Her eye and her words are fresh, as if she is inventing the world.Thats entertainmentIm currently reading Margaret Talbots book, The Entertainer: Movies, Magic and My Fathers Twentieth Century ($28.95, Riverhead Books) and am simply relishing every word, every sentence. Im only halfway through, and already the list of people I want to share this book with is very long. Its a fascinating read, and anyone with an interest in acting, plays and movies would find themselves magnetized by the stories. The writers father was Lyle Talbot, a Hollywood actor born in 1902. (He was almost 60 when his daughter was born.) Like many actors, he was a natural-born storyteller, and he also kept careful record of his career playbills, newspaper stories and reviews, photographs which made his daughters job much easier. But as she explains in her preface, This book is not a memoir, though my own memories are woven throughout, and its not a biography of my father, either, though his memories are the brightest fiber in it. Its an idiosyncratic history of how entertainment evolved in the twentieth century, and how ideas about character and personality about what made a person interesting, attractive, worthwhile changed along with it. The way I tell that story is through my father and his life. So its also a book about being a working actor what it took, what he gave to make a life in twentieth-century show business. Ill always be grateful to my father for showing me that you could make a life and even a living doing what you loved, and that it was almost your duty to try. Even if what you loved was some feckless, creative pursuit that more practical people with better heads for money would try to talk you out of. Even if what you loved was a business that made stars and you never were one. Though he never became a major Hollywood name, Mr. Talbot seemed to participate in every major important development in 20th century entertainment; as a boy, he traveled the country as a hypnotists assistant and then became an actor in a traveling troupe. (His first time on stage, he accidentally knocked out the leading man instead of just pretending to hit him.) When Hollywood was in its infancy, he made a screen test and landed his first movie job in Love Is a Racket, performing opposite Douglas Fairbanks Jr. He worked in other early talkies for Warner Brothers, and at the height of his career acted with stars such as Humphrey Bogart, Carole Lombard, Shirley Temple and Mae West. He later worked in B movies, including Ed Woods Plan 9 from Outer Space, Jail Bait and Glen or Glenda? He appeared on television, playing neighbor Joe Randolph on Ozzie and Harriet, as Police Commissioner Gordon in Batman and Robin and as Lex Luthor in Atom Man vs. Superman. Ms. Talbot, a staff writer for The New Yorker, has a way with words. Talking about pre-Code movies made in the early 1930s, she writes: But many have a rough energy that draws you in and rattles your teeth like a fast ride over potholed city streets. And here, she describes her father waiting in the wings to go on stage for the first time: If nerves made you feel like you were one guitar string being plucked over and over, this felt like being strummed. Ev erything around him seemed louder, sharper, more vivid. There were lots of kids in the audience, and he thought he could hear them wiggling around on their squeaking chairs, pick out the patent-leather protest of their new Buster Browns. He could smell the sweet, sharp scent of the trampled grass on the tent floor. He could hear the summer night sounds outside crescendos of cicadas, a lazy wind plucking at the tent flaps. He could see the shine of stage makeup and perspiration on the leading ladys face as she rustled past him.

Most years its a mixed bag of categories that are easy to pick and some that not even Carnac could see coming. This year is no different: Of the six major categories discussed here picture, director, actor, actress, supporting actor and supporting actress three are virtual locks, two are a bit shaky and one is anyones guess. If nothing else, at least we have Family Guys Seth MacFarlane as the host to keep us entertained on Oscar night Sunday, Feb. 24.Best PictureIll start with an easy one, a category that the Academy will make you wait three hours to hear but that we know is inevitable: Argo will win for Best Picture. Its won all the major awards leading in, the story makes Hollywood a hero (which voters will love), and I think I still have a lump in my throat from the last half hour. Its truly great filmmaking. Except for Beasts of the Southern Wild, Silver Linings Playbook and Lincoln (the latter two of which I respected but didnt necessarily like), the other nominees for Best Picyure were superb as well: Amour made me cry, which never happens at movies; Django Unchained was terrific film art with a strong message; Les Miserables had a sweeping emotional resonance that is difficult to achieve; Life Of Pi is the most beautiful movie Ive ever seen; and Zero Dark Thirty is a strong drama with a stirring finale. Will win: Argo. Should win: Argo.Best ActorSpeaking of former Oscar winners, with a win for Lincoln, Daniel Day-Lewis will join Katharine Hepburn as the only actors to win three Oscars for lead actor. Even those who didnt love Lincoln as a movie (like me) certainly appreciated Mr. Day-Lewis incredible, lived-in performance as the 16th president of the United States. All of the nominees in this category were fabulous as well: Hugh Jackman in Les Miserables, Denzel Washington in Flight, Joaquin Phoenix in The Master and Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook. Will win: Daniel Day-Lewis. Should win: Daniel Day-Lewis.Best Supporting ActressFor as much as Mr. Day-Lewis is a lock for lead actor, Anne Hathaway is even more of a lock for Best Supporting Actress. Her performance in Les Miserables was heartbreaking, and her stunning rendition of I Dreamed A Dream gave goose bumps to even the most hardened cynics. Other nominees are two-time Oscar winner Sally Field for Lincoln, Helen Hunt for The Sessions, Amy Adams for The Master and Jacki Weaver for Silver Linings Playbook. Will win: Anne Hathaway. Should win: Anne Hathaway.Best ActressThe lead actress category is a bit up for grabs. Most speculate its between favorite Jennifer Lawrence for Silver Linings Playbook and Jessica Chastain for Zero Dark Thirty, but dont count out Emmanuelle Riva from Amour, a film that tugged at the heartstrings more than any other this year. Also nominated are Quvenzhane Wallis from Beasts of the Southern Wild and Naomi Watts, who was phenomenal as a mother wanting to reunite her family after a devastating tsunami in The Impossible. Will win: Jennifer Lawrence. Should win: Naomi Watts.Best Supporting ActorLincolns Tommy Lee Jones is the favorite in this category, but any of the five nominees for Best Supporting Actor (each of whom has won in the past) could emerge victorious. Christoph Waltz proves he was born to speak Quentin Tarantinos words in his great performance in Django Unchained, Robert De Niro actually acted again (for a change) in Silver Linings Playbook, Philip Seymour Hoffman was one of the highlights of The Master and Alan Arkin provided perfect comic relief in Argo. That said, Mr. Jones bombastic grandstanding should be enough to get him his second statue. Will win: Tommy Lee Jones. Should win: Christoph Waltz.Best DirectorBest Director is anyones guess this year. Ordinarily the winner of the Directors Guild of America award is the frontrunner, but Ben Affleck (Argo) inexplicably isnt nominated here. Pundits are guessing it will be either Lincolns Steven Spielberg for his third Oscar or Life Of Pis Ang Lee for his second. But I say dont count out Michael Haneke for Amour, which is a notable highlight of his considerable directing career. Also nominated are Benh Zeitlin for Beasts of the Southern Wild and David O. Russell for Silver Linings Playbook. Will win: Micahel Haneke. Should win: Ben Affleck (I dont care that hes not nominated, this award should be his). Yes, the Oscars are a time to cheer for your favorites and passion runs deep, but always remember: Life goes on, win or lose, and the bottom line is its Hollywoods night to celebrate Hollywood.

There are a few stellar action sequences, but the story is very thin, Mr. Willis doesnt have many wise guy remarks and the action grows tired quickly. It just doesnt feel like a Die Hard movie (this is the fifth one, if youre counting). Rated R.Beautiful Creatures (Alden Ehrenreich, Alice Englert, Jeremy Irons) Teen love between Ethan (Mr. Ehrenreich) and Lena (Ms. Englert) gets complicated when its learned that shes a witch with a life-defining birthday coming soon. The love story is hard to buy, but its a compelling narrative and it delivers a positive message for teen girls. Rated PG-13.Identity Thief (Jason Bateman, Melissa McCarthy, Robert Patrick) An accountant (Mr. Bateman) tracks down the woman (Ms. McCarthy) who stole his identity in this absolutely terrible comedy. Its not funny, and even worse, its insulting to the intelligence. A definite disappointment from Seth Gordon, who made Horrible Bosses. Rated R.Side Effects (Jude Law, Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum) When her husband (Mr. Tatum) returns after four years in prison, a depressed woman (Ms. Mara) attempts suicide and suffers the effects of prescription medication. Its a good drama with decent performances, but the final half hour is so twisty itll make your head spin. Rated R.

Warm Bodies (Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, John Malkovich) A zombie (Mr. Hoult) falls for a pretty girl (Ms. Palmer) and finds himself becoming human again as they spend time together. A zombie romantic comedy is certainly an original idea, and theres enough sweetness and dark humor for it to work. Rated PG-13.Bullet To The Head (Sylvester Stallone, Jason Momoa, Christian Slater) A hitman (Mr. Stallone) teams up with a detective (Sung Kang) to find the killers of the hitmans partner (Jon Seda). Its Mr. Stallones typical mindless stuff, which could be a good thing if thats what youre in the mood for. Objectively, though, this is an average action pic at best. Rated R.Mama (Jessica Chastain, Nikolaj CosterWaldau, Megan Charpentier) Strange things happen when two girls who were lost in the woods for five years are found and move in with their uncle (Mr. Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend (Ms. Chastain). Its an intriguing premise and there are a few good scares, but lackluster execution leaves it less than entertaining. Rated PG-13.Gangster Squad (Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin) A team of rogue cops hunts down the operation of gangster Mickey Cohen (Mr. Penn) in 1949 Los Angeles. The occasionally campy tone doesnt mesh with the otherwise serious drama, and the story is a predictable, clich-ridden mess. Rated R. FILM CAPSULES
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 FLORIDA WRITERSPunishment is a pleasure in debut legal thriller Punishment, by Linda Rocker. Wheatmark. 248 pages. $18.95 trade paper; $4.61 Kindle e-book.Retired judge Linda Rocker has set her first novel in West Palm Beach, taking us into the courthouse in significant architectural detail. Hallways, stairways, parking areas, judges chambers, courtrooms and other related locations are handled with authority. So are the workings of the courthouse: trial procedure from jury selection on through the interaction between judges and other court personnel, bailiffs in particular. In fact, the primary character among many important ones is Casey Portman, bailiff to Judge Janet Kanterman. One plot concern has to do with an explosion in the courthouse that, while doing little damage, stirs things up and puts everyone on edge. The threat of a follow-up to this assault on the system lingers in the background. Who is behind it? What is the motive? The main plot is the sensational trial of a man charged with using his trained attack dog as a deadly weapon in the murder of his wife. As Casey and Judge Kanterman prepare for and move into the proceedings, readers learn that the deceased womans father is attending all phases of the trial. Doubtful that justice will prevail, he is prepared to take things into his own hands. Thus, another plot thread is developed that takes us into the mind and actions of this tragically suffering man who is obsessed with vengeance. When Judge Kanterman becomes too ill to preside over this trial, her colleague Judge Barbara Clarke receives the assignment. There are hints that someone might have poisoned the liberal Judge Kanterman to get her off the bench for this trial. Judge Clarkes busy schedule will become even more hectic, when things are already difficult in her office. Ben, her bailiff, has been acting quite strangely, and his friend Casey is aware of it as well. Then Ben is murdered. Is this courthouse doomed to violence? Casey, up to speed on the dogicide case, takes Bens place working with Judge Clarke. Things are not well in Judge Clarkes home life, either. Her scoundrel of a husband, Ellison Watson, is not only cheating on her but is mixed up in illegal drug activities. These involve not only a shadowy figure named Jack McGinty, but also the murdered bailiff. To add to the complications, a relative of McGintys makes it onto the jury. This young woman somehow gets away with texting the proceedings to Jack. Why does he need to know the details of this trial? The final plot line is the romantic one: Casey slides into an affair with Luke Anderson, the chief of police. In crafting her complex narrative, the author uses the familiar structural techniques of shifting point of view and moving back and forth in time. Each perspective reveals different facts and understandings about one or more of the plot lines. More importantly, each parcel of plot and perspective creates its own suspense. By alternating perspectives while advancing the main plot and the subplots, the author can ratchet up the suspense to greater and greater intensity. In employing this ambitious technique, Ms. Rockers reach sometimes exceeds her grasp. Some transitions create a bit too much disorientation and confusion. On the whole, however, this method serves the author and the reader well. Another dimension of the novel that could be strengthened is the West Palm Beach setting. It needs more texture, more sense of neighborhood, more atmosphere. Indeed, it needs more of what mystery writer Jonathan King, who also sets stories in West Palm Beach, does so well. Characterization is one of Ms. Rockers great strengths. Its easy to believe in her fictional personages. Though some, like the characterizations of the chief opposing counsels, are based on types, the portraits become sufficiently individualized. Judge Rocker observed plenty of lawyers during her time on the bench. The same efficient, balanced presentation of general and specific traits runs through the fairly large cast of characters in her first book. Conceived by its Palm Beach Gardens author as the first novel in a trilogy, Punishment has more than enough going for it for me to recommend it and look forward to the next installment of Casey Portmans life at court. Readers can find the opening chapters of Blame at the back of the present volume.

Corral: The True Story of Josephine Marcus Earp By Ann Kirschner (Harper, $27.99)REVIEWED BY LARRY COXWyatt Earp is a fixture in American folklore. His dust up at the O.K. Corral is legendary, and dozens of books have been written about both the shootout and the man. On the other hand, almost nothing has been written about his common-law wife, Josephine, and what little has been published is inaccurate. For example, I Married Wyatt Earp by Glen Boyer and published by the University of Arizona press in 1967, more than two decades after Josephines death, was withdrawn in 1998 because many of the so-called facts in the book could not be proven. Josephine, or Sadie as she was known to her friends, or Josie to Wyatt, was born in Brooklyn just before the Civil War. When she was 11, the Marcus family moved to San Francisco, where her father, Carl-Hyman, found work as a baker. Eventually, Josephine found her way to Tombstone, Ariz. There Josephine met deputy sheriff Johnny Behan, and less than eight months after they built a house together, she left him for Wyatt Earp. How Josephine and Wyatt met and exactly when they moved in together is not known with any accuracy. The fact is they did, and they continued to be a couple for almost half a century. The festering bad feelings between Earp and Behan erupted on Oct. 26, 1881, at the O.K. Corral. It was one of the most famous gunfights in the history of the Old West. Acclaimed author Ann Kirschner chronicles the never-before-told story of this GermanJewish woman from New York and how she worked as a part-time actress and dancer who connected with one of the most famous lawmen of the frontier West. She brings Josephine out of the shadows to at last tell her story, a colorful and spirited tale of ambition, grit, adventure and selfinvention, all set against the exciting backdrop of the panorama of the West.

Mann Performing Arts Hall, 7:30 PMGeorge Washington plays pitchman throughout the centuriesIt would not be in good taste or even legal to use a picture of the president of the United States as part of a products package design or advertisement. Most states have laws that prohibit the unapproved use of a persons name or likeness for commercial benefit. This was not a concern when George Washington (1732-1799) was president (17891797). He was admired by the public, but there were no photographs of him and few portraits. Product packaging back then was usually a plain black and white folded paper packet. In the 19th century, celebrations of Washingtons Feb. 22 birthday and the July 4 birthday of the United States made Washington a symbol of the country. A surprising number of things collected today feature Washingtons portrait. At least three tobacco companies used Washington as a brand name one for pipe tobacco, one for plug tobacco and one for chewing tobacco. Each had a picture of Washington on the package, often beside a flag and other patriotic symbols. Collectors of Washington memorabilia can also find a brand of coffee, a soup companys ads, dishes, calendars and many other products that feature Washingtons image. No doubt he would be upset to know he once advertised Acapulco Gold cigarette papers. Other Washington collectibles found today include old posters and signs advertising products like insurance, 1876 U.S. Centennial furniture with wooden inlay picturing Washington, and paper needle cases from 1930s dime stores. Even today Washington is a spokesman for products. In the past year, he has promoted cars, beer, an appliance store and a state lottery. A colorful tobacco tin for Washington Mixture tobacco, picturing Washington and a flag, auctioned for $303 at a 2012 William Morford auction in upstate New York. Almost all George Washington-related collectibles and antiques are selling well. Q: My mother said she and my father had the first radio in our area, and people came from all over to listen to it.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEB. 21-27, 2013 C17 after 2 months after 3 months COURTESY PHOTO President George Washingtons face is pictured with a flag on the lid of this 3 inch-by-4-inch 1890s tobacco tin. It sold for $303 at a William Morford auction in Cazenovia, N.Y. cast was made when KDKA of Pittsburgh broadcast the results of the presidential race between Warren Harding and James Cox on Nov. 2, 1920. Radio receivers were not widely available at the time. In the 1920s, many people made their own radios by assembling the necessary components and attaching them to a board. By the late 1920s, radios were being manufactured for sale, and furniture companies began making cabinets to put them in. Pierson Furniture Co. was founded in 1927. It became Pierson Radio Co. in 1930 and began making radio cabinets. In 1940 the company switched from manufacturing to retail, and its name was changed to Pierson Factory Showrooms. Your empty cabinet would sell as used furniture and might bring a few hundred dollars. Q: Have you ever heard of green glass goblets filled with peanu t butt er and sold by Armour Meat Packing Co.? My brother-in-law worked for Armour in the late 1930s and early 1940s. He would bring home various purchased meats and also peanut butt er packed in these goblets. I have three of them and would like to donate them to Armour for its museum, if it has one. A: Armour was founded in 1867. Although the companys main business was meat packing, it also made bacon, ham and other meat products, as well as canned food, jam, jelly, lard, salad oil, soup, peanut butter and other products. The company used byproducts of the slaughterhouse to make brushes, glue, strings for musical instruments and tennis rackets, sutures and pharmaceuticals. Armours refrigerated meats, non-refrigerated products and pharmaceuticals are owned by different companies today. Several companies packed peanut butter in goblets or glasses in the 1940s and s. By the 1950s, they were also using decorated glass as packaging. The pressed glass goblets sell for about $5 to $10 each today. Tip: Do not store jewelry in silk or wool bags.

Rather than being daunted at such an undertaking, Founding Artistic Director Steffanie Pearce is thrilled with the prospect. Its definitely a challenge, she says. But, its exciting, too. This is our third production at the design center and we plan to use every inch of it all three floors. British conductor Richard Bernas is here from London to conduct the production. Were utilizing the staircase, the glass elevator, everything, the maestro says. The action will be all around the audience. The action will be IN the audience; theyll be engulfed in it. We intend to really maximize the potential of the space. This is the first time that Mr. Bernas has worked with Opera Naples, now in its seventh season; its also his first time in Naples. Its exciting to see the level of community interest in this young company, he says. Opera Naples has very high standards, and people are very supportive of the work. Thomas Smith, ON executive director and CEO, says the companys lack of a permanent performance venue hasnt been a hindrance in fact, its been an advantage. We have our offices, classes, and rehearsal space in east Naples, but our productions move around, Mr. Smith explains. This helps Opera Naples to have a presence in both Collier and Lee counties, which is important. We want to bring original opera to all of Southwest Florida. ON made its Philharmonic Center for the Arts debut with Tosca last December and has been able to make a variety of venues work, including high schools, churches and even parks. The design center as a venue can handle the full-scale production of A Midsummer Nights Dream. Ms. Pearce says the production has a full opera orchestra and 18 solo singers, most from New York and other cities, plus 18 local students between the ages of 7 and 15. With the passageways and different levels of the design center, it will be staged entirely in the round, she says. Promises maestro Bernas: Its a Shakespeare opera thats going to be a lot of fun.

He set himself a very difficult task when he bid six clubs with virtually no encouragement from North. West led the king of hearts followed by the queen, East playing high-low to show a doubleton. This verified the evidence from the bidding that West began with seven hearts. Eisenberg ruffed the second heart and drew trumps, noting that West started with three clubs. Since West could hold no more than three cards in spades and diamonds, it was very likely that East had four or five spades, which in turn made him a favorite to hold both the king and ten. Eisenberg therefore decided to finesse against East for both of those cards, but it was not quite as easy as that. The problem was insufficient entries to dummy. If, for example, declarer cashed the A-Q-K-J of diamonds, discarding a spade on the last diamond, only one spade finesse could be taken. Alternatively, if he overtook the queen of diamonds with the king in order to take two spade finesses, dummys last diamond would not be good, saddling South with a spade loser at the end. Eisenberg found a neat solution to this dilemma. After drawing trumps, he led the queen of diamonds to the king. The jack of spades was covered by the king and ace, whereupon declarer cashed his last trump. The trick that Eisenberg had given away by overtaking the queen of diamonds now returned. On the trump lead, East had to discard from the [S] 10 5 4 and [D] 10 8 5. A diamond discard would set up dummys last diamond, after which just one more spade finesse would suffice. And if East discarded a spade instead, Eisenbergs fourth spade would be good after the spade finesse was repeated. Either way, the slam was home. 34th annualFEBRUARY 23 & 24, 2013 10 am to 5 pm Cambier Park & 8th St. South, Naples$5 suggested donation Proceeds benefit Naples Art Association, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.Voted the 9th Best in the USA by Artists!

Memorialized in the 2008 movie Bottle Shock, the tasting put upstart California wines up against the best France had to offer. And a 1973 California vintage won. I recently caught up with Violet Grgich, proprietor of Grgich Hills Estate and daughter of Miljenko Mike Grgich, the winemaker who crafted Chateau Montelenas legendary wine that took Paris by storm. Grgich Hills will release a 2010 vintage Paris Tasting Chardonnay in honor of Mr. Grgichs 90th birthday on April 1. (The winery is holding a cakedecorating contest in his honor. The winner gets a trip to Napa. Find out more at www.grgich.net.) I sipped the Paris Tasting Chardonnay during our interview at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples. I was amazed at how it changed and evolved as the wine opened up. Extremely well balanced, it started with a nice floral nose, following into the palate with apple and white peach, and a lovely toasty vanilla-oak flavor, ending in a long, drawn out finish with a touch of mineral. Here are some excerpts from our conversation. Q: How is the new Grgich wine similar to the legendary Paris award winner? How do they differ? A: The 1973 vintage was truly remarkable; something happened that year where it all came together seamlessly Our new wine has many of the same qualities. It has lots of balance, lots of fruit and good acidity. Because of its subtlety and elegance, it changes and opens up to go with many different foods. The grapes are very different from the grapes back then, because the source is completely different. The idea for this wine was not only to commemorate the Paris tasting, but to take the best barrels and create a wine of incomparable balance that makes you want to drink some more. Dad says when great wine goes down the throat, it says, More! This 2010 vintage is elegant and food friendly, European in style. It is seductive in a way, not overly big and impressive, but it lures you in, like great literature or fine art. It captivates you. Q: What does this wine mean to you personally? A: What I like about this new wine is that it has my dad on the label. This wine contains all of my dads experience and wisdom. It is not just his wine, but a culmination of all he has done. He has participated in 88 vintages! When he was a baby back in Croatia, they were poor and could not take time away from the harvest to watch the children, so they put them to work in the crush vats, stomping around. If they were hungry or thirsty, there were grapes and grape juice available underfoot. We have carried on this tradition at Grgich Hills and have a grape-stomping party every year during harvest. Q: Can you describe the wine? A: This wine will age for at least a decade and will continue to evolve and change. Right now, it takes quite a while to open up. The vineyard block of vines are in Carneros, and are our oldest and best chardonnay vines. We farm naturally, and are certified organic and Biometric. The yeasts are wild yeasts, and we do as little as possible to the grapes and the wine, letting the vines express themselves fully. I get this beautiful aroma floral and mineral with richness and depth and it is just a baby right now. It is made with a little more oak, so it needs more time to open up. To me, oak is like salt: You need a little to enhance the flavors and aromas. The wine has flavors of apple, pear and crme brulee, and this wine would be great with seafood risotto. Once it opens up more you will see the aroma has changed and there is a little gardenia and quince fragrance from the glass. Q: How can people acquire this wine? A: We made only 631 cases, and it is only available from the winery. We dont know how much will be available for sale after the birthday party; I hope we dont drink all of it then, because we want people to be able to try it.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C39 DID YOU Verginas Bruschetta was created in 2000 with the very rst Opening Menu. We followed a thousand year old tradition to pan roast a mix of seasonal vegetables marinated in extra virgin olive oil. We then toss with feta cheese and nish it off with parsley and a touch of crushed pepperoni. A fantastic start to a nice dinner that pairs perfectly with your favorite Grappa, Schnapps or glass of wine. This will open your pallet and get you ready for your main course. KNOW? 700 Fifth Ave. S., Naples, FL 34102 | 239.659.7008 | www.VergnasRestaurant.com Reservations RecommendedWhen I called to make a reservation at Bellissimo Ristorante, I was told right off the bat that dishes are prepared fresh to order and might take 30 minutes or more to arrive at the table. It was odd to hear such a statement on the phone. But the implicit message, born out by our experience at the Bonita Springs establishment, was that a meal at Bellissimo should not be a hasty affair; one should slow down and savor the food and conversation. Allow the restaurants villastyle decor to transport you far from its run-of-the-mill plaza setting. Take your time to ponder five veal scaloppini offerings before finally settling on one. Linger after dinner long enough to indulge in one of Bellissimos madein-house desserts. You might emerge from your meal surprised to find that youre the last to leave the party, as we were on a recently evening. Chef Jose Benavides and co-owner Ed Falcone opened Bellissimo last summer in a former pizzeria in Bay Crossings Plaza, across U.S. 41 from the north entrance to Bonita Bay. Mr. Benavides previously worked at a number of Southwest Florida restaurants, including the dear departed Cin Cin and Mille Sapore in Fort Myers. To distinguish Bellissimo from the throng of Italian restaurants in the region, he has dreamed up some of his own dishes to complement the usual calamari, linguini with clams and chicken Marsala. You dont see sole Francese or snapper puttanesca at most Italian restaurants, or veal scaloppini served on a bed of fresh greens. If you love the components of Italian cooking but are tired of the sameold picattas and parmigianas, Bellissimo is worth adding to your rotation. Opera music played softly in the background as we took our seats at a whitelinen-bedecked table. The front dining room has a double-height ceiling, which could have felt cavernous but was made warm and intimate by touches of trompe loeil painting that evoke a country villa. There was some confusion about who would be serving us, and we ended up being tag-teamed throughout the evening by a young man eager to charm, a taciturn older gentleman and finally a bubbly young woman who handled the dessert course. Regardless of the revolving staff, courses were well timed, dishes were cleared promptly and beverages were refilled conscientiously. The wine list contains an acceptable number of by-the-glass options, though it lacks much in the way of information. The Nero dAvola varietal ($9) didnt have a vintner or vintage listed, but I did enjoy this Sicilian red, which is similar to syrah. Crusty, chewy bread slightly doughy in the center w as served with butter. From the seven appetizers, we settled on beef carpaccio ($11) and three-cheese bruschetta ($9). The former was buried underneath a field of arugula and long shingles of n utty P armesan an off-kilter plating technique that showed up again later. Why hide the star of the dish behind the supporting players? The wafer-thin slices of beef tenderloin were delicious, the marbled fat melting on the tongue like butter, but they came off more like a garnish for a salad of greens and cheese instead of the other way around. A better balance could easily be achieved. No such issues with the bruschetta, which was topped with a nicely blended mix of creamy ricotta, salty Parmesan and pungent gorgonzola. A drizzle of fig glaze brought a contrasting note of caramellike sweetness. Bellissimo still fires up the pizza ovens at lunchtime, but for dinner theres a fancier menu of pastas, seafood and chicken dishes, steaks and the aforementioned veal preparations. A number of pasta dishes sounded interesting, including cavatelli with shrimp, Italian sausage, broccoli and sundried tomatoes. We opted instead for cannelloni alla Bellissimo ($22) the kind made with fresh crepes, not the factory-made pasta tubes. Its not something you see much of anymore in restaurants, probably because its more time and labor intensive. But the result at Bellissimo is so much fresher and lighter, compared to typical stuffed pasta dishes, that its practically a revelation. Yes, this is a dish that will not sit in your stomach like a ton of bricks. And this despite a complex filling that marries minced chicken, beef and veal with spinach, carrots and Parmesan. Although the menu said it would be topped with bchamel sauce, it had a light, sweet marinara instead. The veal dish, scaloppini di vitello alla griglia ($23), also offered something unexpected. The flattened medallions of veal were grilled, rather than sauted or battered and sauted, as they usually are. Grilling truly brought out the delicate sweetness of the meat. But again, the presentation befuddled. We couldnt even see the veal when the dish arrived, as it was buried beneath a mound of chopped radicchio, arugula and endive. That said, I liked this crisp mlange of bitter and mild greens, which was tossed with chunks of fresh mozzarella and red onion and dressed in a homemade balsamic vinaigrette. It was a fresh, light alternative to heavier vegetables or pasta that might be served with veal. You do get a choice of starch rice or a roasted potato and the latter was nicely browned and sliced into tiles on the side of the plate. The waitress raved about the tiramisu at dessert time, but frankly Im a little tired of the omnipresent dish.
