The Marine had stepped on an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan. He lost his legs. His arm was severely injured. The Greenbergs introduced him to a renowned nerve-regeneration surgeon. Sensation was restored to his right hand. The Greenbergs went to his wedding. Were the lucky ones, says Mrs. Greenberg, a part-time Naples resident and recreational pilot who was able to meet this Marine by way of Veterans Airlift Command.

I suspect that Im more of an alien than you, but lets not quibble over details. The facts are in, from way out. NASA scientist and astrobiologist Richard Hoover reported last week his discovery of tiny fossilized bacteria embedded in three meteorites that arrived here from deep space. They represent the most invasive species ever discovered, but they present no threat because theyre long dead. Coincidentally, some of these life forms are strikingly similar to earth-bound cyanobacteria, blue-green algae that can survive and thrive in extreme climates such as glaciers or geysers. But others arent. What is both exciting and extraordinary, Dr. Hoover told the respected Journal of Cosmology, is although many of the bacteria resemble and can be associated with generic species on earth, there are others which are completely alien. Neither I nor other experts who have seen the evidence have any idea what these creatures might be. (To review this in greater depth, go to http://Cosmology.com .) The news is stunning: the first, or at least the most demonstrable claim of its kind in the history of human beings. Its all the more stunning, perhaps, because it almost vanished in the weekly fragmentation of international news of war, natural disaster, hunger and disease. Of fate, chance, kings and desperate men. But there it was. Dr. Hoovers discoveries, coupled with recent findings by other scientists, provide the world with decisive evidence that we are all aliens. Life is a truly cosmic phenomenon, announced Dr. Chandra Wickramasinghe, director of the astrobiology program at Cardiff University, in Wales. There will be debate and testing and retesting, of course, but Dr. Hoovers credentials are as solid as a granite wall. So what does this mean for 7 billion friendly folks now inhabiting this spinning planet?It means, first of all, that our collective life very likely originated in some other world. The molecules of our hearts and minds were forged in the fires of distant star systems then spun into travel-hardened strands of animation, which probably crossed the vast sea of space to reach our small island countless eons ago.It also means that the search for the first aliens is now officially over. Weve found them, and they are us. They are, in fact, you and me. The overall pattern of evidence, from genetics to microfossils, indicates that life on Earth came from other planets, says Dr. Rhawn Joseph, who introduced the discovery in the Journal of Cosmology and holds doctorate degrees from both the University of Chicago and from Yale University. Our ancient ancestors were visitors from the stars. Weve always known that, and we dont need interstellar bacteria to prove it. Just look at the way people behave at a four-way stop at rush hour, or in a crowded grocery isle, or when they get hungry. Try the drive-through line at McDonalds on any late Saturday night. Or spend a minute sizing up any stadium full of Pittsburgh Steelers fans, or New York Yankees fans, or Manchester United fans, or Gator or Seminole fans. Only aliens could behave like that. For that matter, consider the way politicians get us into wars, or keep us dependent on alien oil, or allow the existence of overwhelmingly costly health care systems that keep a slender minority of rich people ensconced in lavish lifestyles, or shore up systems of private enterprise that take advantage of poor farmers, or suggest cutting money and support to the one great impulse toward self-control that we have public education. Only a chief alien could behave like that. Heres what I mean: Without self-control, were done. Or let me use a better word: without selfless-control, were done. Well become the planet peopled with aliens that self-destructed. Anyone who ever stood in front of a classroom knows that children first and foremost require self-control, and tolerance of others, and all those qualities that are taught, not born. Teachers also know that children are not only descended from aliens imported here by means unknown, but theyre probably freshly minted, and never mind the descendants. Somebody with a real sense of humor snuck them in and left them here, in our charge, probably to go off drinking in the constellation Orion or Ursa Major or the Pleiades or wherever the good bars are. As preposterous and paradoxical as it sounds, children are both aliens and engines of the future, creatures we fear and revere. And public school is the one sure bet to polish them a little bit, to take some of the rough edges off them, thereby making them a little less alien and a little more productive. You cant tell just by looking at children, either. You have to try to teach them, which ranks as just about the hardest job in the world when you do it for 20 aliens at a time, day after day after day. They look so cute, after all how hard could it be? Thats probably what Florida Gov. Rick Scott thought when he proposed cutting billions from public education on his watch, and reducing the salaries of the only people who can slow down the aliens a little teachers by more than $2,200 a year, on average. Or maybe he really is the chief alien, and therefore dead set on promoting our very worst interests: cutting the education budget. There is compelling evidence to think so. With apologies to Bill Shakespeare, let me paraphrase that masters thinking on the matter of aliens, from The Merchant of Venice: I am (an alien). Hath not (an alien) eyes? Hath not (an alien) hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions; fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, heald by the same means, warmd and coold by the same winter and summer, as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, do we not revenge? Those are rhetorical questions. The answer is yes aliens are us (and Shakespeare knew that without having to earn advanced degrees in astrobiology, or any degree whatsoever). Unless youre the chief alien. Then, obviously, youre something else. Editors note: This column first appeared in March, 2011. Gov. Scott has proposed giving a little more money to teachers. d m r t a rogerWILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Israel, Palestine and the OscarsThe Academy Awards ceremony made history this year with the firstever nomination of a feature documentary made by a Palestinian. Broken Cameras was filmed and directed by Emad Burnat, a resident of the occupied Palestinian West Bank town of Bilin, along with his Israeli filmmaking partner Guy Davidi. What does a Palestinian farmer wear on the red carpet in Hollywood? We were almost prevented from knowing, as Mr. Burnat, his wife and 8-year-old son were detained at Los Angeles International Airport and threatened with deportation. Despite his formal invitation from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as an Oscar-nominated filmmaker, it took the intervention of Oscar-winning documentarian Michael Moore, who now sits on the Academy Board of Governors, followed by Academy attorneys, for Burnat and his family to gain entry into the country. Broken Cameras was in competition at the Oscars with an Israeli documentary, The Gatekeepers, a film that features interviews with the six surviving former directors of Israels Shin Bet, the countrys secret internal security service, which functions as a sort of hybrid of the U.S. FBI and CIA. In the film, all six condemn the current practices of Israeli occupation and settlement expansion. In a remarkable case of life imitating art, as celebrities gathered for the entertainment industrys biggest gala of the year, the Israel/Palestine conflict played out on the streets of Tinseltown. Hours after regaining his freedom, Mr. Burnat issued a statement that read: Last night, on my way from Turkey to Los Angeles, Calif., my family and I were held at U.S. immigration for about an hour and questioned about the purpose of my visit to the United States. Immigration officials asked for proof that I was nominated for an Academy Award for the documentary Broken Cameras and they told me that if I couldnt prove the reason for my visit, my wife Soraya, my son Gibreel and I would be sent back to Turkey on the same day. He went on: After 40 minutes of questions and answers, Gibreel asked me why we were still waiting in that small room. I simply told him the truth: Maybe well have to go back. I could see his heart sink. Gibreels birth in 2005 was the motivation for the film. Emad Burnat got his first camera then, to record his fourth son growing up. At that time, the government of Israel began building the separation wall through Bilin, provoking a campaign of nonviolent resistance from the Palestinian residents and their supporters. As Mr. Burnat recorded the protests, his cameras were smashed or shot, one by one, destroyed by the violent response from the Israeli army and the armed Israeli settlers. Dror Moreh is the Israeli director of The Gatekeepers. Moreh told me: The settlements are the biggest obstacle to peace. If there is something that will prevent peace, its the settlements and the settlers. I think this is the largest and most influential and most powerful group in Israeli politics. Theyre basically dictating the policy of Israel in the last years. I think that definitely for the Palestinians, the settlements are the worst enemy in their way to the homeland. When they see everywhere, in Judea and Samaria now, the settlements that are built like mushrooms after rain, they see how their country is shrinking. Both Broken Cameras and The Gatekeepers were up for the Oscar against other very compelling nominees: How to Survive a Plague, about the AIDS epidemic; The Invisible War, about rampant, unprosecuted rape in the U.S. military; and Searching for Sugar Man, about renewal for a musician long thought dead. Mr. Burnat finished his statement on his detention at Los Angeles International Airport: Although this was an unpleasant experience, this is a daily occurrence for Palestinians, every single day, throughout the West Bank. There are more than 500 Israeli checkpoints, roadblocks, and other barriers to movement across our land, and not a single one of us has been spared the experience that my family and I experienced yesterday. Ours was a very minor example of what my people face every day. Searching for Sugar Man won the Oscar. Regardless, the 2013 Oscars mark a historic shift in the public dialogue on Israel/Palestine, a longoverdue shift to which 40 million television viewers were exposed.

I have several friends who are current trustees and other friends who were and are founding trustees. I want to share that these people were truly hurt and offended by the writers incorrect depiction of their motive and character. Dave and Pat Gibbons were the centerpiece of the article and I state unequivocally that there are no more generous, compassionate and down to earth people in Naples. I have had the great privilege of becoming friends with many of these people, most of whom, if not all, are an elite group of humanitarians that I can do no more than aspire to be. I have never seen a side of any of them that is not caring, generous, committed and altruistic in the textbook sense of the word. In short, the real deal. Wealthy? Perhaps, but the rest of the character study could not have been more flawed.Jon K. Finstrom President/CEO Florida Marina Clubs LLC g w f a t m t amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINION

And, you have the comfort of knowing that your needs will be taken care of, both now and in the years to come. The Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce has a mission to make Collier County the best place in America to live, work and play, and it does so by promoting business growth, developing future leaders and connecting the community. Since 2002, its been under the deft leadership and guidance of Mike Reagen as president and CEO. I met Mike when he first came to Naples and was impressed from the beginning with his sincerity, integrity, leadership and collaborative spirit. Last month, at the age of 70, Mike announced he plans to retire in the coming year. While there was expressed disappointment, few were surprised. When he started, he announced his intention was to serve for a decade; hes simply executing his plan. Mike was born in Jersey City, N.J., and raised with his sister as culturally, New York City Irish. They attended six different grade schools as their father, a WWII U.S. Navy Commander, moved around for his job with Aetna Insurance Company. Mike says his longest stint in any community was the four years he spent in college in the Bronx. He earned a bachelors degree with honors from Fordham University, a masters from the University of Illinois and a Ph.D. from Syracuse University. He also completed the Senior State & Local Government Executive Program at the Kennedy School at Harvard University. Looking back over his distinguished and influential career in public service, Mike appreciates a few highlights, including being given the chance to create major contract-training programs and to help reorganize a major state department. He also opened offices in foreign countries, helped resolve two public organizational scandals and survived administratively suppressing two prison riots. Mike and his wife, Susan, who is a registered nurse and clinical social worker (she is with Corizon Mental Health Services, which serves the Collier County Jail), have three daughters. Mike is a trustee at the Community School of Naples and serves on the advisory board for the trauma center at Lee Memorial Hospital. He also works closely with leaders of the Partnership for Colliers Future, the Horizon Council and FGCU. While anticipating new beginnings after his service to the chamber, he says, Im feeling good. My health is excellent, the chamber is in good shape and I have a lot of stuff to do in the remaining part of 2013. I, for one, am grateful for Mikes contributions to the Paradise Coast and wish him well in his new endeavors.

Trolleys with bagpipers aboard will transport passengers to McCabes Irish Pub, Paddy Murphys, Under the Shady Palm and Jacks River Bar before returning them to Mulligans. The 35th annual Naples St. Patricks Day Parade is set for Saturday, March 16.Parade Chief Marshal Patrick Mahoney has attended all of the pub crawls through the years and recalls how the tradition began: In the old days, the parade committee had a group of bagpipers go place to place along Fifth Avenue South to the different watering holes, announcing to all that the St. Patricks Day Parade would be the next day. I thought it was fun just following the bagpipers so much fun that I suggested getting a bus one year, he says, adding the crawl became known as Naples Largest Moving Land Party. Cost of the pub crawl is $38 and includes parking, all trolley transportation and entertainment as well as appetizers along the way. Proceeds will help pay for the privately funded parade that attracts almost 40,000 spectators every year.A second fundraiserSoprano Steffanie Pearce, founding artistic director of Opera Naples, stars in An Evening in Ireland to benefit the parade. The evening begins at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 14, at Naples United Methodist Church, 6000 Goodlette-Frank Road N. Ever since my father introduced me to guitar and folk music when I was a young girl growing up in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, I have loved singing Appalachian ballads that came from Irish immigrants working in the coal mines, Ms. Pearce says. She has performed in more than 50 American and European opera houses and has been a soloist at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, the Hollywood Bowl and The Kennedy Center. For An Evening in Ireland, she will perform solos of Toy Land, Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life and The Last Rose of Summer from Moores Melodies. Don Goller, who started the Naples Harp & Thistle Pipe Band, will perform Goin Home with Ms. Pearce. An Evening in Ireland will also will feature Irish shanachie (storyteller) Batt Burns from County Kerry, Ireland. As a young boy, Mr. Burns lived with his grandfather, who was a traditional shanachie in the Hills of Kerry. He recreates on stage the ancient world of storytelling, drawing heavily on the works of famous Irish writers such as W.B Yeats, Brendan Kenneally, Frank OConnor and Bryan McMahon. Also on the program are Irish step dancers Claire and Catherine Gorman, the owners of Celtic Spirit School of Irish Dance, and traditional Irish music by Wolfhound.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 28-MARCH 6, 2013 is the rough equivalent of the Library of Congress or a great research institution or even an intercontinental transporter or conversely, the equivalent of a teacher who patiently repeats what she said in the lecture on demand anytime, for each student. No need to imagine it, because that world has arrived, or soon will in private and public schools across southern Florida. Here, Florida Weekly offers a brief glimpse of how this revolution is taking shape. Some, then many, then probably all of the regions schools will be reborn in purely electronic form by decades end, educators predict. Its like the industrial revolution. It will completely change the way students look at the world, says Dwayne Altman, the IT director for Lee County Public Schools. Thats no problem for students, who already live in a different world than the one inhabited by their parents and teachers. In many cases, theyre familiar with the terrain ahead. We (educators) recognize, that the kids are the natives and we are the tourists they have the knowledge, says Richard Jean, principal of Archbishop McCarthy High School in Southwest Ranches near Fort Lauderdale. He and his staff pioneered a complete departure from the world of bound paper books in South Florida three years ago. Now, no books can be seen in the halls or classrooms of that school. Acting as mentors, Archbishop McCarthy educators shared their experiences with Bishop Verot High School in Lee County and others in the region and state. In those places, the same will be true shortly. We will not order a single set of textbooks for the very first time, for next year, says Dan Jackman, a Bishop Verot spokesman. By the time freshmen arriving in August become seniors, in 2017 and possibly before that Bishop Verot will be bookless. We want education to be more than a (paper book) or a book on an iPad, explains Mr. Jackman. We want it to be a digital learning environment where the world is endless. A student at Archbishop McCarthy, Alessandro Vecchi, describes what thats like: I never pick up a book. You never have to grab a book. And, we can look up information on top of information, book on top of book, whereas before we had to use just one textbook. Book on top of book, the novel on top of the venerable. In the milieu of electronic education, information is updated at a moments notice, as new discoveries and new understanding occur in the old arts and sciences. In such a revolutionary new world, textbooks are no longer static. To understand the impact, look to the past. Imagine Detroit, 110 years ago: Just before dawn, a group of early risers make their unassuming ways (probably on foot or by horse and buggy) from their little homes into Henry Fords factory, to build a horseless carriage. Imagine those cars appearing on streets crowded with the clattering bustle and mess of horses and buggies, in Boston and New York and Philadelphia, in Washington and Baltimore and Atlanta, in Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale and Fort Myers. To imagine that, perhaps, is to comprehend the revolution happening or about to happen in every school and to every child and therefore to American culture as a whole right now. The first little stepsIt starts like this, with a plan in place and marching orders issued at a private school, Bishop Verot High School in Fort Myers: March 27: Issue iPads to teachers for the first time, with pre-loaded applications. Teachers will accustom themselves during the Easter break. April: Overhaul the schools wireless network with new Wi-Fi access points and increased bandwidth through fiber optic cable. Educate teachers. May and June: Teachers attend workshops hosted by Apple, and by an east coast school already in the process. July: Student iPads arrive at Bishop Verot, where faculty will begin downloading applications for learning into each. August: Students arrive and receive their new iPads. Like many things, its not really quite that simple, of course, although that schedule comes directly from the school. But the planning behind it has been long and careful. For Bishop Verot officials, a visit to Archbishop McCarthy proved helpful, in part by changing their minds about how to make the changes. Our principal thought he liked the notion of having students bring their own devices, recalls Mr. Jackman, a spokesman for the school. But after we saw how effective it is to have everybody use one device (as they do at Archbishop McCarthy), we were like, OK, I guess we wont be doing that.Public schools may struggleFor public school administrators, such problems can occur on a scale 20 to 80 times as large. Merely assessing which texts are available for downloading, since the state must approve all public school textbooks, may prove to be no easy task. Deciding whether to ask students to bring their own devices or go with a school district plan for uniform technology such as the Apple iPad involves more than merely determining what is best. The Lee County School District, for example, has 82,000 students in 119 schools, the 40th largest district of 13,000 districts in the nation, officials say. Collier includes 44,300 students in 48 schools, and Charlotte has 16,000 students in 21 schools. Its one thing for a Bishop Verot or a Canterbury to (do away with books), but its another for us, says Dr. Douglas Whittaker, superintendent of schools in Charlotte County. In Lee County, 0 percent of our students are on free or reduced lunch plans, which means they dont have the money to go out and buy an iPad, notes Mr. Altman. So demographics and economics have to be taken into account across broad swaths of the population, which is not the case at most private schools. By 2015, however, state officials will require local districts to begin, stepby-step and slowly, to bring in the new technology for students, he says. How this will be paid for remains to be seen. In Charlotte County the first public school district in Florida to wire its schools for Wi-Fi there isnt the money to expand what we have right now, says Dr. Whittaker. But Charlotte is ahead of the game anyway. A hurricane named Charley helped officials look to the future, along with an administrator named Chris Brefs, the districts instructional technology director, says the superintendent. Chris saw the value of being wireless a decade ago, so we have been wireless, school to school and school to district, since Hurricane Charley (in 2004). Ten high school and middle school classrooms are now using iPads issued to students (with restrictions on their applications and parents agreeing to be responsible) as a kind of test, along with four classrooms of fourth-graders in elementary school. Thats really going well, says Dr. Whittaker. Just as it is in Collier County, with a private school taking the lead. St. John Neumann Catholic High School in Naples formed a committee to compare the capabilities of Kindles, laptops, Android tablets, Nooks and iPads, the school explains in an online report. After careful review and a cost analysis of the devices vs. the functionality, we decided that the Apple iPad best suited our mission (to help students and teachers work together), the report explains. So now, as at Archbishop McCarthy, incoming freshmen received iPads, leased to them on a per-month basis. Every two years our school will return the existing devices to Apple in exchange for the latest generation iPad. Upon graduation, the class of 2016 will exchange their existing iPads for the latest generation iPad. Our current students will be offered a pro-rated amount for which they, too, can have a brand new iPad once they graduate. What could be a better deal than that? Well, free iPads. In Colliers public schools, where officials are planning for the eventual transformation to electronic education, a high-tech medical device manufacturer, Arthrex, provided iPads to high school science classes. After Collier Schools Superintendent Kamela Patton solicited help from the company, Thirty new iPads were delivered to each of our high schools, says Joe Landon, the Collier schools spokesman, writing in an online newspaper report. But whether some kids have iPads or not, in all three Southwest Florida counties, so-called Smart boards or their like have been widely in use for some time large interactive screens in the classroom that allow teachers and students to touch them, creating images or gaining information at the speed of light, together.The private school experienceAt Bishop Verot or the Canterbury School in Lee, as at Cardinal Neumann or Seacrest Country Day or the Community School in Naples all INNOVATIONFrom page 1 ERIC RADDATZ / FLORIDA WEEKLYEvery student uses an iPad instead of books and paper in classes such as this one at Archbishop McCarthy High School near Fort Lauderdale.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 28-MARCH 6, 2013 NEWS A9 Technology is one thing, but thinking deeply and well not to mention thinking deeply and well about how to use technology is another thing. The Canterbury School in Fort Myers and Seacrest Country Day School in Naples appear to do that well. As part of the five-year-old Cultural Bridges program at Canterbury, Seacrest has become part of a program to send students on long and life-altering journeys from which their memories and instincts will never sever ties. Students and their families from the two Southwest Florida private schools will host students from the Koc (pronounced Coach) School in Istanbul, Turkey. In turn, the Florida kids with faculty members the program is designed to benefit both students and faculty will travel to Istanbul together, for a 10-day journey. Typically, overseas travel for young students or faculty members occurs one at a time. But in this case, every member of that group will make the journey, and every student will produce, at years end, an elaborately researched project on a key issue that touches many or all of us without regard to national border or culture. Genetically modified foods, for example. The financial crisis in Europe. Racism as a cultural phenomenon, poverty, or human trafficking on the border of Turkey and Russia. The students choose the subjects. Overseas, they use the remarkable range of new technologies, and especially Facebook and Skype, which allows them to speak to, see and exchange instant communications from thousands of miles away. Parents and faculty support this, so the only thing we pay for is the ticket there and back, explains Dr. Konstantin Georgiadis, a Greek-born history teacher at Canterbury who heads the program and understands firsthand the value of cross-cultural learning. One of the most important ways of learning is through the domain of the emotions, he explains. Which is, in part, the domain where travel always takes a traveler. The outcomes have long-lasting consequences, he says. Students create a network of peers who will go to university, and continue their communications well into their university years and beyond. When the Turkish students arrived in America last month, they stayed with families of Canterbury students, introduced their projects and ideas at school, and traveled elsewhere in the Sunshine State, visiting tourist spots, historic sites and other schools. One journey took them to the Universal Academy of Florida in Tampa, a six-year-old Muslim school devoted to teaching in a traditional Muslim environment. The Koc students, however, are modern Muslims non-traditional and cosmopolitan, says Dr. Georgiadis. And the Canterbury students are almost everything else. So you had us, non-denominational, and all sorts of Christians and agnostics and Jews and Orthodox Greeks, and you had the non-traditional, cosmopolitan Muslims, and then the academy, who are traditional Muslims. Does that work in this hostile world? Very well, apparently which is the sign of a good education. The contact is very interesting, observes Dr. Georgiadis, because it helps them breach the cultural divide. Muslims, Christians, Americans, Turks all of that vanishes in the collaboration. well-funded private schools small siz e and w ealth allow more readily for adaptability and change, more quickly than in public schools. The cost to rewire the Bishop Verot campus so that many users can have electronic access points is about $15,000. The school will spend another $85,000 or so for professional development, says Mr. Jackman getting faculty and staff up to speed. Parents, then, will pay for the iPads by allowing their children to lease one from the school for $25 a month, which includes all the applications and electronic books a teacher may need, in prices ranging from $1.99 for a science app, to $15 for a history or math e-textbook. This does not mean an end to the lucrative textbook business, however (although it might result in the demise of some printing plants). Publishers no longer sell books when they become electronic, explains Mr. Jean, the Archbishop McCarthy principal. Now, they lease those books for a year. When one student in one class completes that year, another student entering the class will need to lease the book again. But such books could be updated at any time, and they might come with embedded videos or other tools. The advantages of the new approach should become clear pretty quickly. The difference between a one-toone iPad program (one instrument for one student), is number one, it eliminates textbooks. We could easily spend $100,000 on replacing a set of textbooks they only last about four to five years, says Mr. Jackman. And number two, education can be tailored to each student. These changes were pioneered by Archbishop McCarthy, where all students and teachers now use Apple iPads with downloaded educational applications and e-books. If iPads were engines, the school would put restrictive governors on each. As it stands, they put filters on each device that restrict its uses. And thats not a bad thing, students agree. This sounds funny coming from a student, but I think its really good they put the filters on, says Adriana Gonzalez, a student at Archbishop McCarthy. That way we cant use them for certain things in class like (Facebook or gaming). It could be a distraction. I wont learn if Im playing games. If students damage or lose their devices, an insurance policy purchased by the school will replace them for $150. So now, there are no textbooks. No paper or copiers. No notebooks. And during school hours, at least, no games. And now, student attitudes have changed significantly, says Mr. Jean. You ask in a school not using this approach what the kids think of iPads and apps, and they think its about games, he observes. Now were teaching them how to use this as a powerful tool. Not a game. I never used to do any homework, says Alessandro Vecchi. But when they gave me the iPad I was compelled to do the homework, because it was a lot of fun. My view now is, its not a gaming device. Its more of a use for work. But I built my own computer, so Im sort of into it. The experience of Archbishop McCarthy administrators in getting to this point is instructive. Mr. Jean and his curriculum coordinator, Les Brown, traveled the country looking at the few schools to have taken up the new technology before deciding how to proceed. It helped them become admirers of Apple, to start with, because the company can adjust and update better than any other, he believes. People laughed at iPhones they said, What kind of phone is that? Ill never leave my Blackberry. And now Apples a $500 stock and Blackberrys a $15 stock. But parents and students, both, were skeptical. Mr. Jean, a former college basketball player, reduced the amount of money the school spent on the winning football program, for example, and aimed it at the new technologies for students. Right off the bat, enrollment dropped 20 percent, to about 1,200 students. Everything was new; not only him, but his thinking, which frightened off some people, he admits. Now, his approval rating is high. The school is back up to an enrollment of 1,500, he says, and many parents and students are eager to join the Archbishop McCarthy community. We had to upgrade the whole infrastructure of this school, he recalls. We have many employees, and suddenly you add 1,500 kids onto the system, and now at any point we have 1,800 on the Wi-Fi system. And at some point soon, in schools everywhere, there will be 18,000 and then 18 million earning electronic educations.

FBCC will distribute 6,800 copies of Mr. Geisels Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, Fox in Socks and Oh, Can You Say among the most famous of the Dr. Seuss books to pre-K Head Start classes as well as kindergarten, firstand secondgrade students in Title 1 schools across Collier County. First Book-Collier County has a single, powerful mission, explains Nora Kolmer, co-chair of development and FBCC board member. Our mission is to provide a steady stream of new books to children in need, which addresses one of the most important factors affecting literacy access to books. Each year, FBCC gives books to thousands of children from low-income families to read, cherish and keep. More than 350,000 books have been distributed locally since FBCC was founded in 2005. On March 2, FBCC offers the stay at home opportunity to adopt a Title 1 classroom. Instead of attending an event, FBCC urges Collier County citizens to read to the children in their lives and consider making a gift to FBCC to help less fortunate children in Collier County. A donation of $500 provides books for an entire class for the school year. Sponsoring a classroom means that each child in the class will receive a book every month during the school year, October-May. All donations to FBCC are gratefully accepted on behalf of the children in the organizations recipient groups. For as little as $25, one childs literacy can be supported for a year. Celebrating philanthropyFirst Book-Collier County recently received the 2013 Harvey Kapnick Award from the Community Foundation of Collier County. The award was presented to FBCCs chair and co-founder, Joanne Wyss, by Kathleen Kapnick at the foundations annual Celebration of Philanthropy luncheon.

ADARVEDPM UNDERCOVER HISTORIANAlligator Alley: 45 years of connecting east and westIve previously shared with you that the Tamiami Trail, also known as U.S. 41, celebrates the 85th anniversary of its opening and the opening of Southwest Florida to the masses this year. Another important highway, the choice among drivers for whom speed is more desirable than the view when crossing the Florida peninsula, is also celebrating a milestone anniversary this year. Alligator Alley opened to traffic on Feb. 11, 1968 45 years ago. Also known as the Everglades Parkway, the Alley was originally constructed as a 78-mile toll facility that connected the southwestern areas of Naples/Fort Myers to the southeastern areas of Miami/Fort Lauderdale. The link between the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico coasts, it initially was visualized as a two-lane road, but engineering studies made it clear that a four-lane divided highway was warranted. The American Automobile Association gets the credit for giving the highway its great name. Many people and organizations, including AAA, opposed the road plan, believing it would be useless to cars and would serve only as an alley for alligators. Opponents also argued that the road was designed with a flagrant disregard for essential safety, and that it didnt go to where its proponents said it would go, according to August Burghard in his 1969 book, Alligator Alley: Floridas Most Controversial Highway. In its 2011 annual report, the Florida Department of Transportation said that, on average, 20,500 vehicles travel through the east and west toll plazas every day. I find it interesting to note that the Seminole Indians supported the idea of the Alley at its inception and never wavered, even adopting a resolu tion in 1959 to grant the right-of-way across their reservation. They felt that the road would assist them in creating businesses in the Big Cypress and they were right. In 1961, the Broward and Collier county governing boards both pledged the use of their secondary gasoline tax funds to guarantee the construction bonds. Since there was no reliable information available for construction estimates, survey crews were assembled and worked together for the next five months on a much-needed feasibility study. In order to expedite the work, the crews camped in the Everglades and the cypress swamps for weeks at a time. Three years later, in mid-May 1964, the Supreme Court approved validation of the $17 million in bonds. Of course, not everyone was pleased with this project not by a long shot. The city of Miami and its former mayor, Robert King High, joined forces to block the road and took their fight all the way to the Supreme Court, where they were struck down. The Associated Press reported, Alligator Alley is the most controversial road ever built in Florida. Never in Floridas history have so many favored building a road, nor so many battled to prevent its construction. By the spring of 1966, however, the controversy of the project began to subside. Back in the mid-1920s, state-of-the-art equipment that was used in constructing the Tamiami Trail included the Bay City Walking Dredge. In the late 1960s, for the building of the Alley, four Madawake eightyard dippers were brought in from Louisiana to lift rock that was blasted from borrow-pit canals. Worth $250,000 each, the Madawake dippers worked around the clock. Alligator Alley was built from both ends toward the middle. The surveyors often worked in water, up to their knees, much like their counterparts who had worked on the Tamiami Trail decades earlier. And, just like during the days of building the Trail, the Alley also required a full truckload of dynamite for rock blasting each week. It has been said that construction of the Trail was likened to that of the construction of the Panama Canal. Likewise, the building of Alligator Alley was a modern-day miracle of its own, over a route where no white man had ever ventured before. Chokoloskee resident A.C. Hancock, chairman of the Collier County Commission, had it right at the August 1966 meeting in Naples during which the name Alligator Alley was adopted officially for the highway. Alleys a good name, Mr. Hancock said. Itll attract tourists. Maureen Sullivan-Hartungs Hidden History of Everglades City & Points Nearby was published in 2010 by The History Press in South Carolina.

Under the auspices of the Phils Lifelong Learning curriculum, The Arts & Alzheimers will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesdays, March 26-April 30. Participants, accompanied by a caregiver or companion, will visit the Patty & Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art, meet with Naples Philharmonic Orchestra musicians and work with area artists and educators. Often times, people afflicted with diseases such as Alzheimers are factored out of the loop of such grand objectives, says Bernadette La Paglia, an educator and registered nurse who coordinates the program. But the arts are all inclusive. The intent of the program is to empathize, first and foremost, and then to demonstrate and validate such capabilities. NPO violinist Daniela Shtereva and harpist Dickie Fleisher will provide musical enhancements to specific pieces chosen from several exhibitions at the art museum, including Painting Women, Revelation: Major Paintings by Jules Olitski and Visual Connection: Painting, Sculpting and Photography Inspired by Dance. On alternative Tuesdays, the group will work with Naples artist Paul Arsenault; neuropsychologist Dr. Bill Beckwith, author and Memory Minutes columnist; and naturopath Ken Friedenberg, the founder of Graceful Earth Inc., who will discuss dementias in the context of diet, exercise and lifestyle. Naples physician and artist Natasha Lidow will assist Ms. La Paglia throughout the series. I think the most important understanding as we reach out is that this is not a class in learning about art. No one will be tested, Dr. Lidow stresses. This is about facilitating the essence of the artistic experience and making it accessible for those who have suddenly found themselves, sadly, left out of so many experiences. Tuition for the series is $200 and includes the attendant caregiver or companion. To register or for more information, contact Bonnie Thayer, director of education and community partnerships at The Phil, by calling 254-2643 or e-mailing email@example.com.

Here are some fun facts about snakes: Collier County is home to 28 species of native snakes. While six venomous species of snakes exist in Florida, only four of those species exist in Collier County. Exotic (non-native) snakes exist in Southwest Florida; most were released as pets and established breeding populations in the wild. They include the Brahminy blind snake (which has been spotted at the Conservancy Nature Center), green anacondas and reticulated, Burmese and ball pythons. Snakes do not have eyelids. Instead, their eyes are covered by a clear protective layer. Snakes have relatively good vision. Some snakes can see objects moving at 300 yards away. Because there are usually many objects in a snakes way on the ground, they cannot rely on vision alone. Snakes do not have external ears. They can hear, however, even though noises might be muffled, and they can pick up sound frequencies. Snakes have touch sensors over their entire body and can sense vibrations in the ground around them. A snake uses its flicking tongue to smell. Pit vipers (venomous) have facial pit organs that are heat detectors used for finding warm-blooded prey. Learn more about the native snakes of Collier County, including which ones are endangered and why they are so important to our environment, during the daily Reptile Reverie prog ram on the Lutgert Commons Deck at the Conservancy. A live snake or an alligator is always part of the presentation. The new entrance to the Conservancy is at Smith Preserve Way, just south of The Naples Zoo off Goodlette-Frank Road. The Nature Center is open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Admission is $12.95 for adults, $8.95 for ages 4-12 and free for ages 3 and younger. For more information about regular educational programs, guided tours, sunset cruises and more, call 262-0304 or visit www.conservancy.org.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 28-MARCH 6, 2013 Great ideas dont always involve starting something newSince My NCH, My Idea was launched in the fall, almost 170 suggestions have been made to identify and define areas in which we can improve. Under the leadership of Michelle Zech, our human resources director; and Sue Manning, director of strategy, quality and performance improvement, the Idea Committee assesses each suggestion based on implementation, collaboration and value (quality or outcome divided by cost). These ideas are then vetted by appointed idea ambassadors who are experts in various subject matters throughout the NCH system. The process already has generated the first five actionable ideas, and many other potentially rewarding ideas are in the pipeline. Here are the first recipients of My NCH, My Idea recognition and rewards: Stephanie Braun suggested that the Wave, our internal publication, go paperless. Electronic production saves printing costs and makes distribution easier. Sue Facteau and Carol Vega from central distribution reviewed their processes and were able to stop the printing of nine unnecessary forms, a move that saves almost 500 sheets of paper per week. Jillian Ewel, Rachel Cline, Mercedes Rankin and Matt Rudy from the histology lab suggested we discontinue a process that led to too many spare samples of surgical specimens never being used and most times suffering damage during storage. Rhonda Gary, billing supervisor, changed the face of the hospital bills patients receive to place credit card information on the front, thus increasing visibility, convenience and payment. Nicole Low, an ICU secretary, suggested stopping production of consent and other lab forms printed every time a test was ordered. These permissions now will be completed once during a hospital stay. One great idea that has persevered at NCH is our 10-year-old organ procurement program in concert with the University of Miami. We recently relocated the Tree of Life with its many leaves in memory of those whose organs have been donated so others might live. This beautiful and meaningful symbol is now on the second floor lobby between surgical ICU and the cafeteria and across from the patient elevator entrance. An average of four families per year make the difficult decision, usually during a very stressful time, to make their loved ones organs available to others in need. Many share their loved ones name publicly on the Tree of Life and visit regularly to commemorate this wonderful gift. Our organ procurement program and the Tree of Life are lifesaving and comforting programs that are part of a long record of thoughtful and important NCH ideas. Its a proud legacy that My NCH, My Idea continues. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. Prevention efforts focused on youth reduce prescription abuse into adulthood SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYA recent government study shows that middle school students from small towns and rural communities who received any of three community-based prevention programs were less likely to abuse prescription medications in late adolescence and young adulthood. Prescription medications are beneficial when used as prescribed to treat pain, anxiety, or ADHD, said National Institute on Drug Abuse Director Dr. Nora D. Volkow. However, their abuse can have serious consequences, including addiction or even death from overdose. We are especially concerned about prescription drug abuse among teens, who are developmentally at an increased risk for addiction. Prescription drug abuse taking a medication without a prescription or in a way (higher dose, snorted) or for reasons other than prescribed (to get high) has become one of the most serious public health concerns in the United States. According to the 2012 Monitoring the Future survey of U.S. teen substance use, prescription and over-thecounter medications were among the top substances abused by 12th-graders in the past year. In 2011, about 1.7 million people 12-25 years old, or more than 4,500 young people per day, abused a prescription drug for the first time, according to the latest National Survey on Drug Use and Health The research, published recently in the American Journal of Public Health, was funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism and the National Institute of Mental Health, all components of the National Institutes of Health. The article, by scientists at Iowa State University, Ames, and Penn State, University Park, presents the combined research results of three randomized controlled trials of preventive interventions termed universal because they target all youth regardless of risk for future substance abuse. All three studies involved rural or small-town students in grades six or seven, who were randomly assigned to a control condition (receiving no prevention intervention) or to a family-focused intervention alone or in combination with a school-based intervention. The studies were started between 1993 and 2002. All of the interventions addressed general risk and protective factors for substance abuse rather than specifically targeting prescription drug abuse. In follow-up questionnaires and telephone interviews completed at 17-25 years of age, students across the three studies showed reductions in risk ranging from about 20 percent to as much as 65 percent for prescription drug and opioid abuse, compared to students in the control groups. Importantly, the interventions used had previously been shown to reduce the likelihood of other substance use or other problem behaviors.We could find no other randomized, controlled studies where brief community-based preventive interventions conducted during middle school were associated with long-term reductions in prescription drug abuse six to 14 years after initial program implementation, said Dr. Richard Spoth, from the Partnerships in Prevention Science Institute at Iowa State University and first author on the study. The intervention effects were comparable or even stronger for participants who had started misusing substances prior to the middle school interventions, suggesting that these programs also can be successful in higher-risk groups.

Wounded Warriors strives to empower service members, while raising public awareness of combat stress and injury. Last year, the Florida Warbirds welcomed somewhere in the neighborhood of 5,000 guests, raising roughly $12,000 at the gate. This year they would like to double their numbers as its the only EAA Warbird Squadron in Florida, and organizers are anticipating visitors from all around the state, as well as out-oftowners from Georgia and Alabama. The first Veterans Airlift Command story you hear really pulls at your heartstrings. Then you hear the next story and the next story, says Jim Zack Olzacki, president of EAA Warbird Squadron 24, host to the event this weekend. VAC founder Walt Fricke says he has 6,500 of these stories, as his organization has transported 6,500 passengers through the generosity of 2,000 aircraft pilots and owners. My daughter used to say, If were not crying by 11 oclock in the morning, were having a slow day, says Mr. Fricke, whose daughter coordinates VAC missions. Mr. Fricke was a helicopter pilot in Vietnam. When a rocket hit his leg, his foot landed in his lap. He remembers thinking, How am I going to land? But he hesitates to share his own experience. He would rather share the experiences of those he has been able to help, such as the triple amputee VAC flew from Walter Reed Army Medical Center to San Diego. The soldier wanted to show his buddies he was doing OK before they deployed for their next tour in Afghanistan. He wrote the VAC asking if they could help him out with a flight. They wrote him back two hours later, saying, Youre covered. The VAC has a good link to aircraft. It blasts e-mails through a database, always recruiting new volunteers. They know how to reach the servicemen and women in need of transport, whether they are quadriplegics, amputees or others suffering from traumatic brain injuries or post-traumatic stress. Mr. Fricke says if the VAC needs anything, it needs financial support. Thats where Warbird Weekend comes in.Why Warbird Weekend?Almost 45 Warbird planes will be on display, including a B-25 bomber and P-51 Mustang. When veterans and pilots hear this is for Veterans Airlift Command and Wounded Warriors, they show up, Mr. Olzacki says. Patrons can purchase rides on a T-6 Texan for a World War II fighter pilot experience or ride in the open cockpit of PT-17 Stearman. When I was learning to fly Warbirds, before my first ride up in a PT-17 Stearman, I asked a guy what it was going to feel like, Mr. Olzacki remembers. He told me two things: When youre back on the ground, youll have a big smile on your face. And shell be a handful to land. Mr. Olzacki must clarify, Warbird Weekend is not an airshow; the planes are on static display, but if visitors stick around long enough, they will see some flyovers, maybe even some formations, with planes flying wing-to-wing. By keeping Warbird aircraft in the public eye, Mr. Olzacki hopes to keep history alive. He knows planes may be the draw, but on a deeper level he believes everyone wants to help wounded warriors. They just dont know how. Thinking of the crowd and the charities, he says, This weekend gives you a chance to say, Im going to go to this event. I want to support in my own small way the organizations that care for our veterans. His comrade David Jones has seen how the aircraft can stir a visceral reaction within veterans. When they see Vietnam helicopters, they start crying, thinking, Thats what saved my life, says Mr. Jones, president of EAA chapter 565. They get it out of them, they may have had it pent up inside for a long time, but theyre able to release that feeling and theyre better off after they leave. Mr. Olzacki thinks of pictures hes seen in magazine, pictures of men with their heads bowed and their hands on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. Then he thinks of his weekend, saying, Their hands will be on Warbirds.

BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickEven though my pets, from dogs to goats to horses, generally get along with others not of their kind, I believe most animals like having a companion of their own species. This is why I keep at least two of almost every type of pet I have, and why, three months ago, I added a cat. Not a kitten a cat. I thought my middle-aged indoor cat, Ilario, seemed lonely after my other cat had died. And while kittens are always appealing, I knew that many wonderful adult cats need homes. I had one opening and wanted to fill it with a middle-aged cat. Enter Mariposa.Within a month, I knew Id made the right decision in adopting her. An adult cat can slide quickly into your life. You know pretty well what youre getting with a grown cat activity level, sociability, health, etc. Given time in a loving environment, a grown cat forms just as tight a bond with his new people as any kitten can.If youre thinking of adopting a kitten, I encourage you to think cat instead. (Or better yet: one of each!) Because adult cats are generally more reserved than kittens, you need to cut them some slack in the adoption process. And then give them plenty of time to adjust to their new home. Mariposa spent the first two weeks alone in a closed spare bedroom, secluded away from Ilario and the dogs to give her time to adjust to the upheaval. When I went in to feed or clean the box, I sat quietly on the bed, letting her choose how much she cared to interact. For the first few days, all I saw of her was the flash of her tail as she slid under the bed. When she started greeting me by purring and jumping up beside me to be petted, I moved to the next stage, putting a baby gate across the open doorway. After a few days and some hissy interactions, the two cats were happily sharing the sunny spot in the spare bedroom. But while Ilario came and went over the baby gate, Mariposa did not. She felt safer with the dogs on the other side of the gate, and I didnt push it. Another couple weeks went by before she felt brave enough to explore a little more. My dogs are not cataggressive. If they were, Id never risk having a cat in the home. But they are naturally curious, so I kept a close eye on interactions. After a few sniffs and one aborted chase that ended with Mariposa flying over the baby gate to safety my dogs know the leave it command very well everyone decided to get along. Each week they seem to get along better than the week before. I made it easy, of course, with three litter boxes (experts advise one per cat, plus one) and separate feedings for everyone. Two cat trees at opposite ends of the house offer places for togetherness or quiet time alone. Not that either cat is often alone: As Id guessed he would, Ilario loves having another cat in the home. My biggest challenge now? Finding space on the bed. With two cats and two dogs, there doesnt seem to be a whole lot of room left over. Mariposa, for her part, sleeps on top of me. Thats going to be uncomfortable in the summer, but on these cold evenings I have to admit: It makes me even happier for adopting her than I ever would have dreamed possible.

B6 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE LOCAL BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE INDUSTRIES BSECTIONWEEK OF FEB. 28-MARCH 6, 2013 NEW FEDERAL REGULATIONS FOR MORTGAGE lenders are meant to protect consumers and spur a new wave of loans for homebuyers, but local lenders worry that rather than accelerate the market, these new guidelines may slow things down. Do I feel that the mortgage standards of three of four years ago may have been way too lax? Absolutely. Has the pendulum swung too far in the opposite direction? Its certainly possible, says Jay Beckingham, mortgage banker. In response to the housing bubble and its burst, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has adopted an ability-torepay rule, effective January 2014. The rule rests on a simple, common sense principle: Mortgage lenders must verify that prospective borrowers can pay. Mr. Beckingham finds this redundant. A lot of times government tries to protect consumers, but lenders have already made these adjustments, he says. I cant tell you of any lenders who are happy to see loans defaulting. Thats something we dont want to see from a business point of view, or personally. I dont enjoy hearing, I cant pay my mortgage.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 28-MARCH 6, 2013 239-434-0300 www.aemc.cc American Eagle has the Solution! MONEY & INVESTINGWashingtons facts are stranger than fiction Sequestration is upon us. What does the 12-letter word mean? Sequestration is the act of removing, separating or seizing anything from the possession of its owner, particularly in law, or the taking possession of property under process of law for the benefit of creditors or the state. That very strange, legalistic mumbo jumbo defines our current state of affairs. In 2011, Congress authorized this legal action to be taken to pare runaway federal deficit spending if bi-partisan, cooperative efforts failed to do so. Without a lastminute patch, there will be an automatic reduction in federal government agency expenditures of some $85 billion beginning March 1. The president says sequestration could have a very big and painful economic impact. Many Republicans say, Bring it on! as they chaff at federal spending. Instead, they opt for very real pain now as they consider it to be bearable compared to further delays in spending cuts making the future economic pain unbearable. The Congressional Budget Office reports covering the various economic implications of sequestration concluded, If allowed to run their course, the austerity measures could cost 750,000 jobs and keep weak economic growth stunted for the rest of 2013. Also weighing in was the White Houses own budget controller, Danny Werfel, who acknowledged last week after testifying to Congress that the full force of the $85 billion in cuts would not be felt immediately. But On a seven-month time frame youre going to see the effects relatively quickly, according to Reuters. So there you have it: non-partisan and partisan pencil pushers agree that the economy will really be feeling the pinch by August or September but not immediately. However, the Federal Reserve chairman might be very discouraged by sequestration, as the Fed has been trying to create a recovery through a wealtheffect in bonds and equities. And he would fear a major roil in U.S. capital markets as market participants do not like uncertainty, unresolved problems or anything that hints of undoing a tepid recovery. Who is hurt by the cutbacks? Individuals who are recipients of government programs, those who work for the government and businesses owners, suppliers and employees with ties to the government will feel the brunt of sequestration. Across governmental agencies, employees are expected to have 22 days of furlough they wont work one day a week until Sept. 30. Likely there will be a slowdown in new government contracts, a double hit to the defense sector, which already is poised to take 50 percent of the $85 billion in cuts, causing a 13 percent contraction in defense spending from now through September. There are exceptions and exemptions. Excepted civilians include those deployed overseas in a combat zone, those who ensure the safety of life or property to the extent needed to prevent unacceptable risk or catastrophic gaps, according to the Washington Times. So where did the quirky idea of sequestration come from? It was part of the Budget Control Act of 2011, passed Aug. 2, 2011, which was designed to be a mechanism to force budget reductions of $1 trillion over a 10-year period in which $44 trillion was projected to be spent. BCA took another reasonable step toward responsible budget cutting; it created a super committee (equally comprised from the house and Senate and both sides of the aisle) to fashion a balanced, comprehensive deficit reduction plan. However, the BCA had foresight to make provisions for blunt, across the board cuts (or sequestration) to go into effect if the super committee met with failure which it did. By November, the committee announced, After months of hard work and intense deliberations, we have come to the conclusion today that it will not be possible to make any bipartisan agreement available to the public before the committees deadline. Sequestration was to have begun Jan. 2, but the fiscal cliff tax legislation allowed the sequestration to be delayed until March 1.What does it all mean?It might mean that Congress will spend the next several months arguing over the $1 trillion in budget cuts. Though such cuts are much needed, the focus on budget cuts/sequestration takes legislative eyes and efforts off the real economic goal, which is growth in GDP. Only with GDP growing faster than 2.5 percent can we solve our financial problems. A growing GDP can only come from a reduction in net exports and from increased business investment. It cannot come from government spending (as we try to curb) and it could only marginally come from an already bloated level of consumption. A growing GDP will reverse high unemployment. It is a growing economy that raises national income so that IRS tax receipts increase. On the bright side, this budget mess might mean that deficit spending might be facing a dead end. Obviously, a sequestration will be very hard on some recipients of federal programs. It will be very hard on defense contractors who employ thousands of Republicans and Democrats. It will be hard on employees of the federal government. As ugly as the problems are and as congested as the legislative process is, the U.S. still remains a better choice, a safer haven, than the EU or Japan. And that is often very hard to imagine.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Small Drips, Big ProfitsThose with only a few dollars to invest at a time are not out of luck with the stock market. Dividend reinvestment plans (DRIPs) can help you invest sums such as $20 or $50. DRIPs let you buy shares of a companys stock directly from it, bypassing brokers (and broker commissions!). Hundreds of major corporations offer DRIPs. With traditional DRIPs, you must own at least one share of a companys stock before you enroll in your own name. So if youre not already a shareholder, youll have to buy at least one share through a broker, paying the commission (find lowcost brokers at broker.fool.com). Be sure to specify that you want the share(s) registered in your name, not the brokerages name, as is typically done. Then you can open a DRIP account with the company and buy additional shares directly. If you already own shares, you may have to pay your brokerage a fee to switch the registration from its name to yours. Direct stock purchase plans (DSPs), a newer kind of DRIP, operate similarly, but you neednt own any shares before enrolling. You can buy your very first shares through them. DRIPs and DSPs let you dollar-cost average, building a position in a stock by regularly investing in it. Theyll even purchase partial shares for you. For example, if Honeywell is trading around $71 per share and you send in a $25 contribution, itll buy about a third of a share. When the price is low, you get more shares, and vice versa. (Be sure to keep detailed records of all your purchases, for Uncle Sam.) Some plans even let you buy stock at a small discount to the prevailing price. Explore the websites of companies youre interested in to see whether they offer these plans. Alternatively, just save up a few hundred dollars (or more) at a time and invest through a regular brokerage account. Learn more at dripinvestor.com, directinvesting.com, and fool.com/School/ DRIPs.htm. Not Too Big to FailIn 2008, Id just opened a brokerage account. Certain that the economic crisis presented all sorts of opportunities for bargain-hunting investors, I thought that Washington Mutual was too big to fail. Obviously, I learned otherwise. I bought when the stock was already down, but I thought all the selling was due to unwarranted panic, and if I just held it long enough, it could make giant gains. As the price kept falling, I got gutsy and bought even more. Then one day I learned the bank had been forced to close. I thought there would be some kind of warning before this happened, so we stockholders would have time to sell. I lost every penny Id put in it. J.H., Canoga Park, Calif.The Fool Responds: Often, as soon as bad news is announced, a stock will immediately trade at a lower price. The trick is to stay on top of a companys progress and to get out if you no longer have faith in it. Unfortunately, once a company files for bankruptcy protection, most stockholders will get little to nothing.Is GE Destined for Greatness?If your portfolio could use a solid, dividend-paying blue-chip stock, take a look at General Electric (NYSE: GE). The companys recent fourth-quarter earnings report featured revenue up 4 percent and earnings per share up 11 percent. Fully 35 percent of profits were from its energy businesses, including power and water, oil and gas, and energy management. The companys backlog of booked orders hit a record high, at $210 billion. GEs dividend recently yielded 3.4 percent, and the payout has been hiked five times in the past three years. GE has also been rewarding shareholders by buying back shares and reducing its share count, which boosts the value of remaining shares. Meanwhile, the company has a variety of long-term investments that are just beginning to take root. For example, GE now controls more than 40 percent of the American wind turbine market and 35 percent of the global natural gas turbine market. The company is reducing its focus on financial services, while expanding its work in energy, health care, aviation, mining, infrastructure and more. Its also got a hand in some next-generation technologies, particularly the industrial Internet, which could be the connecting backbone that ties all of GEs disparate manufacturing and services segments together. Data analytics is still a young industry, and the opportunities for optimization are immense. Tracing my roots back to 1948, at a baby furniture store in Washington, D.C., Im now a top global toy and childrens products retailer. Based in New Jersey, I boast more than 1,500 stores in the U.S. and around the world. I also encompass the FAO Schwarz brand and sell toys through its Fifth Avenue store in New York City. My Times Square store has a 60-foot Ferris wheel. I employ about 70,000 people, and though I was a publicly traded company between 1978 and 2005, Im now privately held. Some parents and teachers have taken issue with my name. Who am I? (Answer: Toys R Us) Insider SellingQI saw that some insiders at a company have recently sold several million shares of its stock. When insiders sell so many shares, who are the buyers? F.A., Decatur, Ill.AShares sold by insiders such as officers, directors or owners of a company are sold in the market, where for every seller theres usually a buyer. The catch is that if there are many more shares for sale than there are interested buyers, the price will drop until it reaches a point at which buyers will buy. Several million shares might seem like an awful lot to us, but remember that in the course of a typical trading day, many companies experience a high volume of trading. In recent months, Best Buys average daily volume was about 10 million shares. For General Electric, it was more like 43 million. It can be smart to examine insider purchases and sales for companies that interest you. Some occasional selling is routine, as many insiders get a lot of their compensation in the form of stock and have to sell shares occasionally to generate cash. One or more insiders unloading a large portion of their shares can be a red flag, though. Insider buying is generally just a bullish sign. You can look up insider transactions at websites such as insidertrade.net. ***QCan you recommend any books on value investing?

He has been in the lending business for more than 30 years and says the new guidelines do not make him reluctant to loan. He acknowledges the guidelines are meant to protect borrowers from falling victim to risky lending, but consequently, he feels such guidelines may tighten their access to credit. Label something consumer protection and ask anybody if they are in favor of it. Whos going to say no? he poses. Of course they are in favor of it, but what does it mean? The biggest change Mr. Beckingham has seen in the mortgage industry would be the repeal of no-doc loans, required under the Dodd-Frank Act and strengthened by the new regulations. Before making a loan, mortgage lenders must collect documents such as the borrowers paystubs, tax returns and bank statements to determine their employment status, debt-to-income ratio and credit history. Complying with the new rule, lenders will then issue what the bureau calls a qualified mortgage. To me, these guidelines are a blessing and a challenge, Mr. Beckingham says. A blessing because they are more clearly defined and a challenge because we are not all the same. We are coming off an economic cycle where many have experienced difficulties. Some have made it past them, but some lost a job and had to deal with a short sale or foreclosure. Now they may not be able to qualify for a loan even though they are employed again. Mr. Beckingham will adhere to the new guidelines but he does not know if down the road borrowers will come back and say, Boy, that piece of legislation really helped me. Im sure glad it was in place. He understands the ethics of protecting consumers, but he does not want such restrictions to stall them. I do not need a set of guidelines from the federal government to tell me whats right and wrong, he says. My mother and father taught me whats right and wrong. You know when youre doing right.How we got hereBut many believe lenders are to blame for the fragile state of the market. In the years leading up to the mortgage crisis, they saw lenders loaning out money with reckless abandon. Unaffordable loans helped cause the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, Richard Cordray writes on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau website. People across the country were sold unsustainable mortgages. Some may have entered with their eyes open, seeking to ride the wave of rising housing prices, but many were led astray. For many borrowers, it appears that lenders ignored the numbers to get the loan approved. This kind of reckless lending was an endemic problem. To put it simply: Lenders should not set up consumers to fail. Mr. Beckingham believes theres enough blame to go around. But he does understand the implementation of verified documents. When prospective borrowers feel wary of sharing such personal information, he asks them, Imagine if someone were asking you to lend them $150,000 for a house. Wouldnt you want to see 30 days of paystubs? Wouldnt you want to see their tax records, their W-2? Most of the time, Mr. Beckingham says borrowers respond by saying, I would ask them for more. Stephanie Belknap, a mortgage originator for Core Mortgage Financial in Punta Gorda, agrees the new guidelines may prove to be a hindrance for people trying to buy a home. She says in the past lenders were able to consider extenuating circumstances, but now the new regulations have limited such negotiations. Think of a teacher who just graduated from college, Ms. Belknap says. We used to look at her room for financial growth as an extenuating circumstance. Just like a nurse, she will be making more money going forward than what she makes right out of college. But these considerations are not applicable anymore. Thereby, Ms. Belknap sees the new guidelines as preventing many prospective buyers from moving houses off the market. Regardless if they are first-time homebuyers or families trying to move up to something bigger, Ms. Belknap sees the recent guidelines keeping people in their current housing. Ms. Belknap has been working in the mortgage industry for almost a decade. She feels lending guidelines are already tight, saying, Its a hard job getting a loan to the closing table. She does not know if the new guidelines are necessary, she will see how they play out, but she does urge borrowers to prepare. These are not car-dealership mortgages anymore, not like when you could go buy a car on a weekend whim, she says. You have to be prepared. You have to know what you can afford. You have to know your credit issues and you have to be ready to have your income fully disclosed. These are the steps you need to take before applying for a loan. Preparation will get you to the closing table. Mr. Beckingham reiterates her advice, urging potential borrowers to take on the responsibility of protecting themselves. I cannot tell you what you can afford, he says. I can tell you what you qualify for according to the guidelines. But you individually, you know what payments you will be comfortable with, you know what does and doesnt fit into your budget. Only you know what you can afford. RULESFrom page 1 Mortgage applicant checklist>> 1. Check your credit. Usually if you order it online, it will require you to sign up with a credit monitoring, which entails a monthly fee. You are allowed one free check a year; you can request this direct from Transunion, Equifax and Experian. Those usually wont include credit scores, though, which is important. Lenders will look at the middle score of the three; for example, 750, 720, 730. They will use the 730 score for pricing and quali cation.>> 2. Review credit report(s) for inaccuracies. If there is a dispute, take action to resolve it. Dispute it directly with the bureaus; they offer this service online. Give yourself time. A normal dispute can take up to 60 days.>> 3. Get your income documents ready. The lender will require 30 days of your most recent pay stubs, two years of W2s, and if you have rental properties or are self-employed, two years of tax returns.>> 4. Be able to show your assets. The lender will also require 60 days of your bank statements. Review them, and be sure you can source any incoming deposits that arent your payroll. You sold a boat? Be able to show the bill of sale and title transfer. Cash under the mattress wont be acceptable.>> 5. Drivers license and Social Security card. BECKINGHAM BELKNAP

C35 TheatreZone puts mental illness at center stageTheatreZone is taking on the Southwest Florida premiere of a rock musical about a family coping with mental illness. The 2009 Pulitzer Prize-winning Next To Normal was inspired by a TV newsmagazine special about electroconvulsive therapy not exactly typical fare for a musical, but TheatreZone producing artistic director Mark Danni isnt interested in typical fare. This one veers off the beaten path, he says about the show that runs March 7-17 at the G&L Theatre on the campus of the Community School of Naples. With book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt, Next to Normal was inspired by a show Mr. Yorkey saw on Dateline NBC. Mr. Danni and his wife, actress and choreographer Karen Molnar, saw it on Broadway a few years ago. We really didnt know much about it at the time, Mr. Danni says. We had heard Saints talking trash. Saints throwing around four-letter words. Satan in a Gucci suit. Sunday school was never like this. But Stephen Adley Guirgiss play, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, is. One character, for example, introduces herself by saying: My name is MONICA better known to you mere mortals as SAINT Monica. Yeah, dass right, SAINT as in Better not dont get up in my grill cuz Ill mess your s--up, cuz Im a Saint and I got mad saintly connects, OK? She boasts about nagging God so much to save her son that he finally answered her prayers. And if she hadnt nagged, she says, I wouldnt never made it to be no Saint, and the church wouldnt a had no Father of the Church named Saint Augustine. The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, playing at Laboratory Theater of Florida March 8-23, is full of streetwise, trashtalking people from Biblical times and history. The cast includes not only Saint Monica, Judas, Satan and Jesus, but also Mother Teresa, Sigmund Freud, Pontius Pilate and Mary Magdalene, to name a few.

For more than 20 years Mr. Simon taught at the universitys School of Education, and his interactive classes often touched on the topic of finding the right partner. For this Mr. Simon has three simple rules: Pick smart, pick smart, pick smart. The culture works us so hard, he said during our conversation. We get sucked in by chemistry. By the clothes a person wears. By their hair. By their biceps. We sacrifice our most basic needs for someone whos hot. I couldnt agree more. So how does a person go about picking smart? Mr. Simon says it all comes down to values clarification. During his courses he would often give students a list of personal qualities and have them rank those qualities based on what they needed in a partner. The answers, he said, always varied. No single quality consistently outranked the others, which should come as no surprise. We have different love needs, he said. Which makes sense to me. But, I wondered, why do so many of us still get it wrong? Yes, good relationships are about picking smart. Yes, the secret to healthy partnerships is first knowing our own needs. But many sophisticated, intelligent people continue to choose partners who are completely unsuited for them. Part of the problem, the professor says, is that we dont have enough models for what a healthy relationship should look like. During a recent life-long learning course he gave at Hodges University, Mr. Simon asked his students to list three marriages they admired. Many had trouble coming up with two. Worst of all, most doubted their own marriages would appear on someone elses list. This is troubling and undeniably true. But there must be something else going on, otherwise wed see more happy relationships. As it turns out, there is. And I discovered the answer in the unlikeliest of places Walmart. With the recent string of cold snaps, I got it in my head that I needed an electric blanket. I had seen one at a friends house, a plush throw that looked luxuriously warm. But as I stood in Walmart facing shelf upon shelf of the exact same blanket a bland, beige color in a thin, cheap material I realized this was not the blanket I had imagined. Confronted with those weak imitations, I faced a choice: I could purchase the sub-par version or carry on in my quest. The problem in that moment and this is the same problem many of us face in relationships is that I wanted an electric blanket. I needed an electric blanket. And if I were going to go home with an electric blanket from Walmart that day, then I would be settling for something less than ideal. The challenge with finding the perfect partner and linens that plug into the wall is that the search takes time. And patience. And a willingness to do without. Qualities not many of us possess. It is remarkably embarrassing, Mr. Simon said, what we will settle for. Artis Henderson has joined the Twitterverse. Follow her @ArtisHenderson. artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 28-MARCH 6, 2013 The premise: Judas Iscariot, the disciple who betrayed Jesus, is on trial in Purgatory (a place described as having plumbing, bodegas, a movie theater and even a little park where people can walk their dogs). The playwright, who was raised Catholic, says the story of Judas troubled him when he was a kid. It didnt make sense to me, it frightened me and seemed to fly in the face of the notion of the all-loving, all-merciful God that the very good and loving nuns at the Corpus Christi School on 121st Street were teaching me about, Mr. Guirgis writes in the introduction to his script. If Saint Peter, who denied Jesus three times, was forgiven, then why wasnt Judas, he wondered? The show was originally produced by the LAByrinth Theater Company in New York in March 2005, with Eric Bogosian playing Satan and Sam Rockwell in the role of Judas. A four-week run at the Public Theatre, with Philip Seymour Hoffman directing, sold out. There are no characters (in this play) that are average; theyre all outlandish and larger-than-life, says Annette Trossbach, artistic director at Lab Theatre and director of the upcoming production. You dont expect the mother of Saint Augustine to come out talking trash. But by the end of that speech, she has a beautiful moment with Judas. She puts her arms around him and warms him, and says, Im going to nag to God. This is not fair. She goes from being really sassy and outrageous to being like a mother, a great mom. Like Roseanne. Why put on a play about Judas? Ms. Trossbach, who has a degree in theater and one in religion, says shes forever seeking and searching, and adds she finds scripts or shows that question religion, ethics and morality especially interesting. And this one is so scathing, jaw dropping and smart. Its entertaining while also being informative. I found it irresistible. She describes The Last Days of Judas Iscariot as more of a pageant than a play. Variety called it an expressionistic fantasy (with) raw language and flamboyantly street-savvy characters. What attracted Ms. Trossbach to the show was its smartness, she says. Were still talking about Judas today, this whole question of human responsibility or divine sovereignty. Was Judas chosen by God and used involuntarily, as part of the plan, or was he responsible? Did he make a choice? Is he responsible for his crimes? Judas (is considered) the greatest traitor of all time. Is it warranted we think of him like that? Is it fair? By setting the action in a courtroom, the play examines both sides of the question, with a prosecuting and a defending attorney representing each view. Lucy Harris plays the defense attorney, opposite Tim Gunderman. I prefer doing shows that are a little outside the box, and this seems like something I hadnt seen before on any stage around here, Ms. Harris says. I couldnt help but get involved, mostly just because I wanted to try something different. I thought it was an interesting angle, considering how everyone always considers (Judas) to be the bad guy. But there were several bad guys all involved. I think its a really smart idea to look at it from different angles. It wasnt all Judas. Her character argues in court that the synthesis of Gods perfect love and Gods perfect justice can only produce mercy and forgiveness and that Judas is deserving of that mercy and forgiveness. The role is challenging, Ms. Harris says, because shes used to playing comedic roles, whereas the defense attorney is more straightforward and surrounded by characters she describes as kooky and lively. She describes the play as very, very funny, (with) some poignant moments that really make people think. Ms. Trossbach says when she initially read the script, she laughed so hard she cried. Thats an unusual reaction for me, she says. Its also extremely informative and exposes really tough questions. Theres that balance. Their first rehearsal lasted four hours, (because) we were laughing so hard, she recalls. The cast, which she describes as consisting of Catholics, Protestants, Jews and atheists, has had some interesting discussions in preparing for the play. They spent the first couple of weeks talking about the Bible and looking at all the religious references in the text. Everybodys bringing in outside sources, she says, explaining that someone brought in Dantes Inferno. He defines who sits in what circles of hell whos really burning up, and whos just getting singed, she says. Mr. Guirgis, the playwright, has dealt with similar themes of morality and Gods existence in previous plays, such as Jesus Hopped the A-Train and Our Lady of 121st Street. His 2011 The Mother!#$%!& with the Hat, played on Broadway and starred Chris Rock and Bobby Cannavale. The title admittedly created problems not only in marketing and advertising the play, but in reviewing it as well. But it was nominated for six Tony Awards, including Best Play, and for a 2011 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Broadway Play and a 2011 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play. Many of Mr. Guirgiss characters freely use four-letter words, including the religious characters in The Last Days of Judas Iscariot. If some think hes mocking religion by doing so, theyre mistaken. Father James Martin, a Jesuit priest who worked as a theological consultant to the original production, writes this in his book, A Jesuit Off-Broadway: Center Stage with Jesus, Judas, and Lifes Big Questions: Guirgis provided a sophisticated theological treatment of the issue, in all the slangy (and sometimes foul-mouthed) urban argot for which he is known among theater aficionados. In this case, the streetwise lingo represented the playwrights attempt at what theologians call an inculturation of the Bible that is, a translation of the Bible texts not simply into a different language but for a specific culture. For Guirgis, that culture is contemporary urban life. Hence, his saints and apostles speak (and often shout) as if they were standing on a crowded subway station at rush hour. Freed from the need to provide historically accurate quotations for his characters, Guirgis deploys such language to reveal the essential nature of his characters in surprising ways. And as for the playwright, well, at the end of his script, in the acknowledgements section, he thanks God. I struggle with God. I struggle with Life, he writes. I want simple answers and easy solutions. I want to do it on my own and always be in control. Mostly, I want to avoid the uncomfortable, which always leads to more discomfort. God, I think, is perhaps The Unavoidable and writing, for me, is the curse that brings me a little bit closer to that Unavoidable entity that ultimately allows me freedom and access to my work and to my life. Some people are curious about a writers creative process. I cant explain mine except to say that God is the starting point and the finish line. In other words, when all else fails and it always does I pray. Editors note: Nancy Stetson last wrote about The Last Days of Judas Iscariot in the Aug. 6, 2008, issue of Florida Weekly. She interviewed Father James Martin for a story headlined: Betrayal & Forgiveness: At the intersection of theology and theater.JUDASFrom page 1 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYTim Gunderman and Lucy Harris in The Last Days of Judas Iscariot Jonathan Perez and Abrahan de la Rosa The Last Days of Judas Iscariot >> Who: Laboratory Theater of Florida >> When: March 8-23 >> Where: 1634 Woodford Ave., Fort Myers >> Cost: $20 >> Info: 218-0481 or www.laboratorytheaterorida.com Note: Contains adult language and situations; the venue asks parents to use extreme discretion with children.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 28-MARCH 6, 2013 Alls not jake at Cultural Park Theatre This is what those textbook people in Texas must feel like, I think, while reading Neil Simons play, Jakes Women. You know, the ones who censor books and rewrite history so students think that anyone whos black, Latino, gay or female has never done anything noteworthy. Its a very strange way to read a play, searching for curse words or anything that might be even mildly offensive to someone whos ultra-sensitive and lives an extremely sheltered life. Its like an 11-year-old looking up suggestive parts in an adult novel or dirty words in a dictionary. I get caught up in the action and in the cleverness of Mr. Simons dialogue, and I realize belatedly that hed used the f-word a few pages back, in the title of a book written by the protagonists analyst: Love Yourself, F Them. Id laughed, not registering the word as something forbidden. This is very strange, looking for things out of context. Im most definitely not cut out to be a censor, to limit what other people read or see on stage. But Im reading the script this way for a reason: because Jakes Women is playing at the Cultural Park Theatre in Cape Coral. Its the second Neil Simon play for the theater this season. The first, Rumors, was cancelled after the volunteer cast had rehearsed for two months. The actors said they were asked to water down the language in Rumors because the board of directors felt it would be offensive to the audience. The entire situation is very strange, because a) venues should read plays in full before committing to stage them; b) you cannot change the language in a play without written permission from the publishing company; and c) Rumors had already been staged at the Cultural Park Theatre at least two other times in past seasons and the language was never an issue. Why change your mind after a cast has been rehearsing for two months? How can a play that was acceptable at least twice before suddenly become unacceptable? Initially, Cultural Park Theatres executive director, Michael Moran, told local news stations that the venue wanted to put on family fare. He told NBC-2 on Dec. 26 that the f-bomb couldve killed the show. I think it couldve been played down. More recently, the board has said that the cast objected to the theater putting a sign up in the lobby warning patrons about the language. Cast members have said thats not true. (And when they performed Rumors for one night at another venue Laboratory Theater of Florida in Fort Myers there was a sign in the lobby warning that the show contained adult language and situations. The actors had absolutely no problem with that.) All this brouhaha around Rumors turned into just as much a farce as the play itself. The Florida Repertory Theatre put on a production of Rumors in the fall of 2011, as did The Naples Players earlier that year. Both have audience members similar in age to the Cultural Park Theatres, yet neither place received any complaints about the language. I was surprised to learn the same venue that had cancelled Rumors would be presenting Jakes Women. So I read the script. The play deals with a writer who has intimacy issues with women. His first wife died, and his relationship with his second wife is rocky. Because hes a writer and used to creating scenes and dialogue in his head, the play consists of a mixture of real and imaginary scenes between Jake and the women in his life: his wife, his late wife, his daughter, his sister, his analyst, a girlfriend. Starring Alan Alda as Jake, it opened on Broadway in March 1992 more than 20 years ago. (Mr. Alda also starred in the 1996 made-for-TV movie version.) There are some really funny lines this is Neil Simon, after all and some insights into the creative process of writers. But I read it as I imagined a censor would. (Forgive me, Mr. Simon, for dissecting your work like this.) Heres what I discovered: Early in the play, Jakes analyst declares, Men are s#!%$, employing a term for excrement. At a later point, Jake says to her, Id like to either punch your face out with my fist, or rip your clothes off and hump the life out of you. The verb screwing is also used, as are two different slang terms for penis. And the F-word deemed so offensive in Rumors shows up at least twice, including in the title of the analysts book. In addition, in Act I, a character spills a drink on Jakes crotch and jokes about rubbing the spot to clean it. There are at least two instances of adultery. (They happen off-stage.) Language also includes: goddamn, goddammit, bitch, son of a bitch and several variations of taking the Lords name in vain. But heres the thing: When you take words or phrases out of the script like this, youre not looking at them in context. Its like that childhood game where you repeat a word again and again so often that it loses all meaning. Context tells you whether you should laugh, be frightened or saddened. Context is everything. Jakes Women opened Feb. 22. I usually dont attend community theater productions, but I was curious to see whether the cast would use all the words that are in the script. If the Cultural Park Theatre board of directors had made them change the words as they had wanted to do with Rumors the theater would be breaking its licensing agreement with the publishing company. If they didnt change the words, they would seem hypocritical, as Jakes Women contains some of the same words that were declared objectionable in Rumors. As far as I could tell, they didnt change the words. No one ran screaming from the theater, holding their ears. A confession: I only stayed for Act I. Im glad they kept the language intact. But Im sorry they cancelled Rumors. It just doesnt make sense for a theater to do that. What makes this all even more confusing is that two people on the theaters board of directors are acting in Jakes Women. Treasurer June Koc plays Jakes sister, and second vice president Christi Wengerter plays the analyst (yes, the one who says, Men are s#!%$.). Ms. Wengerter also directed the show. As Alice said in Wonderland: Its curiouser and curiouser. ARTS COMMENTARY nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com

The general public is invited to tour the ships. The Nina, described by Archaeology magazine as the most historically correct Columbus replica ever built, was built completely by hand and without the use of power tools. The craftsmanship and the details in the rigging make it a fascinating visit back to the Age of Discovery. The Nina was used in the production of the film 492 starring Gerard Depardieu and directed by Ridley Scott. Capts. Lance and Harry Julian of Pure Naples are the forces behind getting these monumental ships to Naples. The Julians have worked closely with the Freedom Waters Foundation, whose members are volunteering to man the operations of the ships for the duration of their dockage. The ships are open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Groups of 15 or more are invited to schedule a 30-minute guided tour with a crewmember on any weekday. Admission is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors (age 60 and older), $6 for ages 5-16 and free for ages 4 and younger. Group tours can be arranged by calling (787) 672-2152.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 28-MARCH 6, 2013 C11 CAPSULESA Good Day To Die Hard (Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch) NYPD cop John McClane (Mr. Willis) travels to Russia and helps his son (Mr. Courtney) protect a political prisoner (Mr. Koch). 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. Is it worth $10? NoDwayne Johnson is having an identity crisis. In the last few years hes been a pro wrestler, childrens movie star (The Game Plan), action star (Fast Five) and a childrens action movie star (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island). While you cant blame him for wanting to appeal to everyone, taking on a decidedly dramatic non-action role as he does in Snitch pushes his limits a bit too far. Part of the films problem is our lack of sympathy for Jason (Rafi Gavron), an 18-yearold whos arrested for dealing drugs. Common sense suggests that when your defense attorney tells you youre facing a 10-year minimum sentence unless you snitch on other people, you snitch. But Jason refuses to rat on his friends. Hed rather waste the prime of his life in prison than deal with the guilt of informing on his buddies. This is virtuous, but also foolish. If screenwriters Justin Haythe and Ric Roman Waugh had my attitude, which would be to say, Fine, you made your bed, now lay in it, there wouldnt be a movie. Enter Jasons father John (Mr. Johnson), a notably un-tough (seriously, hes a bigger wuss here than he is in his childrens movies) construction company owner who was never there for his son while Jason was growing up. After speaking with the district attorney (Susan Sarandon) and a DEA agent (Barry Pepper), John agrees to infiltrate a drug cartel and provide a bad guy to arrest in exchange for his sons freedom. The fact that John has a wife and daughter at home makes this reckless, not honorable, but were supposed to ignore the danger in which John puts himself to help Jason (who refused to help himself). Conveniently for John, he has a man on staff, Daniel James (Jon Bernthal), who was twice convicted of distributing narcotics. After lies to one another and each of their families, they use a company tractor-trailer to transport drugs for a local thug (Michael Kenneth Williams) and the head of a Mexican cartel (Benjamin Bratt). Snitch is being marketed as an action movie, and there is some action, but Mr. Waugh, who also directed, is more interested in drama than eye candy. As a result, more emphasis is on the story and characters, which is fine as long as both deliver, but they do not, mainly due to lack of logic and poor pacing in the films opening 30 minutes. Mr. Johnson struggles as well. We know he can be the determined tough guy, but the quieter moments and scenes that dont call for him to be too high or too low cause him trouble. He is getting better as an actor, though, and he has an enjoyable screen presence that should continue to serve him well. You can tell Snitch is trying to be an insightful character study that examines how far well go for loved ones, but its not smart enough to be successful. Its a good idea for a movie, poorly executed.

FLORIDA WRITERSRomance and moral reckoning float Civil War thriller The Reckoning, by Bob Larranaga. CreateSpace. 290 pages. $14.99. Kindle e-book $3.99. Though former custom publisher Bob Larranaga has published several nonfiction titles, this is the Estero residents first novel. Its a grand debut, filled with carefully researched history, strong characters, stunningly textured settings and dazzling action. Set near the beginning of the Civil War in coastal Southwest Florida, The Reckoning is a grand adventure that explores a damaged father-and-son relationship, the nightmare of warfare, the nightmares that continue long after combat and the exploitation of the war situation for personal gain. Did the author miss a note? No, there is also romance. The flawed hero is Ed Canfield, a veteran of the Mexican-American War who has settled in the Cedar Key area of Floridas west coast. Its a bustling community at once port and railway terminus. Most of the books action takes place between there and Key West, as Canfield attempts to avoid the central issue of the day during the Civil War: Whose side are you on? Though Florida is a secessionist state, Canfield is no friend of slavery. He strives to be independent, but thats not easy to do. Hot-tempered by nature, he has disciplined himself to a cooler emotional temperature. That, too, is threatened by what he needs to confront. Seeing injustice and cruelty on both sides, Canfields outrage builds. His passion grows for beautiful young Maureen, a neighbors daughter who has returned to Cedar Key to teach school. Most importantly, his ex-wife has sent their teenage son, Jesse, to live with him. Jesse has harbored tremendous resentment toward Ed, whom he thinks abandoned them. Canfield needs to navigate through this emotional hostility. Like author Larranagas adventure plot, his careful development of the father-and-son story is gripping and suspenseful. An attack by a Yankee gunboat ignites the action. Canfield can no longer play the uncommitted outsider. With his son and a few others, he runs the Yankee blockade, searching for Maureen. He encounters her and others at an encampment where yellow fever rages. Now he must somehow make it to Key West and back with the necessary medicine and other supplies. Canfields adventure travels in both directions via various waterways and across the Florida Straits are the heart of this novel. Its not an uncontested journey. Conditions and treacherous outlaws provide the main hazards. The authors descriptions of fight scenes, seamanship and the characteristics of boats is superb. So is his portrayal of the dangerous environment. In many scenes, Mr. Larranaga rivals Robert Macomber, the master of maritime historical fiction set in this era and region. Through Canfield, the author makes us attend to the shoddy moralizing of Gods-on-our-side civilians and combatants. He shows us the predatory nature of those who exploit dangerous conditions to rob and plunder for their own gain, loyal only to themselves. It sometimes seems as if these pirates and other predators are more dangerous than either the Yankee or Revel forces. Though the books title, The Reckoning, is somewhat enigmatic, it is certainly connected to the fact of Canfields torturous guilt from deeds done during the Mexican-American War. The circumstances he finds himself in during the Civil War bring him to an accounting of his moral nature. They also allow for the accounting: a second chance to be able to live with himself and thus be a proper father for Jesse and, possibly, a proper husband for Maureen. It is no accident that Canfields boat is called The Dead Reckoning. Canfield is haunted by nightmares in which he relives his worst Mexican-American War confrontations. He is struggling with something akin to shell shock or PTSD, mixed with guilt. The authors representation of these nightmares is another extremely effective ingredient in this intense, carefully researched Civil War thriller.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC14 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 28-MARCH 6, 2013 The evolution of space-saving tablesSmall rooms need small furniture, but large families need large tables. This problem has been solved in a variety of ways since the 17th century. Homes with long center halls, which were needed to keep the house cool, filled the space with several tables that could fit together to form one large table. A favorite style was a four-legged center table and two end tables with curved leaves that could be raised to be level with the center table or dropped to hang at the side. By Victorian times, the table could be on a center pedestal with sides that pulled out so leaves could be added. By the late 1890s, patented slides and hardware made it possible to pull both ends of a table out, then to fill the vacant space with leaves that matched the tabletop. And by the 1900s, some tables had selfstoring leaves that popped into place from under the tabletop when the top was turned or pulled out. But the most interesting and rarest are round tables made larger by the addition of wedgeshaped pieces, or a group of tables that could be made into one round table. Peter Hvidt (1916-1986) was an architect and furniture designer in Copenhagen, Denmark. He made furniture, usually of teak and steel, in the 1960s. Pieces were very streamlined in the prevailing Danish style thin legs and arms, no fancy trim, very little upholstery. The unique table was made of three curved shapes that could be put together in different ways. There could be one large, round table, a middle-size table or a small table for one. Rago Arts and Auction Center in New Jersey sold one recently for $3,750. Q: I have some plates marked Edelstein, Bavaria, Maria Theresia. Theres also a number I cant read on the bottom. The plates have a plain center and a slightly scalloped edge trimmed in gold, gold leaves and gold flowers. Can you tell me who made them? A: The Edelstein Porcelain Factory was located in Kups, Bavaria, Germany, from about 1934 until a few years ago. Dishes marked Maria Theresia can be found with several different decorations, so it may be the shapes name. The number is a pattern number. Maria Theresia dishes are part of an inexpensive line. A plate is worth less than $10. Q: Does old sheet music have any value? We have some that was published between 1880 and the 1940s.

Earlier sheet music may sell for more, especially if the cover is interesting, colorful or appeals to collectors. Most collectors want sheet music thats complete, untrimmed, unframed and in good condition. Start at $5 to $30 for unframed examples. Ask more if theyre very unusual. Q: I have a John F. Kennedy friendship spoon. One side of the handle is marked with the year 961. The other side just has the number 9, because the last two numbers of the year are missing. I saw one online that had all four numbers on each side. Why would two numbers be missing? What is the value of this spoon? A: Wm. Rogers Manufacturing Co. made souvenir spoons honoring the 1962 flight of Friendship 7 in both silver plate and gold plate. Piloted by astronaut John Glenn, it was the first manned orbital flight launched by the United States. In 1961, President Kennedy announced the goal of landing a man on the moon by the end of the decade. Seven astronauts were chosen, and a tradition of letting the astronauts choose the name of their space capsules began with the first flight. John Glenns children chose the name Friendship, and the number was added in honor of the original group of astronauts. Most of the Rogers spoons found online have 961 and 963 underneath a bust of President Kennedy, and obviously were made after he was assassinated in 1963, but we found one pictured that had only the number 9 on the right side of his bust. It was listed as being made in 1962. Value: about $10. Tip: Decorated glasses given as promotions at fast-food restaurants often fade in sunlight.

Coincidentally, Dr. Scott Haltzman, a psychiatrist on staff at the David Lawrence Center, saw Next To Normal on Broadway at around the same time. I was standing in line at the TKS booth in Times Square, not sure what to see, Dr. Haltzman remembers, when a social worker who was also in line told me I had to see Next To Normal. It was an amazing ride. Dr. Haltzman will attend a special sneak peek and reception from 5-6 p.m. Sunday, March 3, at the theater.

The event is sponsored by Lu Drackett, a longtime supporter of both TheatreZone and the David Lawrence Center, and is free to the public. Dr. Haltzman also attend the Sunday, March 10, matinee to answer questions after the performance.A familys ordealNext to Normal follows suburban housewife Diana (played by Ms. Molnar), her husband Dan (Larry Alexander) and their daughter Natalie (Vera Samuels), as the family deals with Dianas diagnosis and treatment some damaging, some helpful for bipolar disorder. David Michael Bevis, Gerritt VanderMeer and Natale Pirrotta round out the cast. People are fascinated by mental illness. Especially these days, in light of recent events like the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, theyre concerned and want to learn more, says Dr. Haltzman, the author of four books, including one titled The Secrets of Happy Families. Next To Normal parallels the types of issues he deals with in the mental health arena, he adds. Some psychiatrists care more than others and thats illustrated in the play. The role the family plays and how these illnesses affect family relationships is a big factor in the show. Its very entertaining, but it spurs spirited discussions, too. Back when Ms. Molnar saw Next To Normal with Mr. Danni in the summer of 2010, she says she thought Diana was a great role. I was definitely intrigued and thought Id like to tackle it someday. While the whole family is faced with emotional challenges and obstacles, it is Diana, neither violent nor out of control, who struggles with her illness under the surface every day. Her character barely leaves the stage, and she sings almost every line. Alice Ripley, who played Diana on Broadway, won the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical for her performance. Its a heavy role, in more ways than one, Ms. Molnar says. Shes choreographed rock musicals before, but this is her first time starring in one. You have to use your voice in a whole different way, she says. I started working on the songs months ago, before rehearsals even began. Shes thrilled to be playing opposite Mr. Alexander, a TheatreZone ensemble member and audience favorite. Weve played husband and wife in several shows throughout the years, she explains, so theres a trust factor and a comfort level thats important to have especially with material like this. While the subject matter is serious, Mr. Danni believes local audiences will be able to relate to it. Its hopeful in the sense that while this family might not be normal, they can be next to normal. Its an intimate, vulnerable story and it deserves to be shared.

Kurtz FIFTY SHADES OF GREENANNUAL GALA & FUNDRAISERSaturday, March 16 at 7pm Crown Colony Country Club NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC22 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 28-MARCH 6, 2013 after 2 months after 3 months CONTRACT BRIDGEBY STEVE BECKERLook before you leapCertain card combinations require close inspection before declarer decides precisely how to tackle the suit. South failed to make the necessary effort in todays deal and lost his contract as a result. West led the four of diamonds, which was covered by the six, seven and ten. Declarer crossed to dummy with a heart, led the eight of clubs and finessed, losing to Wests queen. West returned the king of diamonds, ducked by South, and followed with the queen, taken by the ace. Declarer could then do no better than lead a second club. West won with the ace and cashed the 8-2 of diamonds to set the contract, scoring three diamonds and two club tricks in all. Had declarer paid more attention to his diamond holding at the outset, he would have made the contract with an overtrick. Assuming West was leading his fourth-best diamond, the Rule of Eleven would have indicated the winning play. South should simply subtract four the spot-card led from eleven, which reveals that there are seven cards higher than the four in the North, East and South hands. Since declarer can see six of these cards in his own hand and dummy, East can have only one card higher than the four. South should therefore play the nine of diamonds from dummy at trick one. If Easts diamond is the seven or eight, the nine will hold the trick, and declarer will still have the suit doubly stopped. If East produces the king or queen of diamonds, South takes the ace and again has diamonds doubly stopped. Declarers aim from the start is to establish his clubs before West can establish his diamonds. By playing a higher diamond from dummy initially, South assures himself of winning the race. 475 Seagate Drive, Naples, FL 34103 | WaldorfAstoriaNaples.com Hop in for a Memorable Holiday*Per person price is exclusive of tax and gratuity.Celebrate Easter in style at the iconic Waldorf Astoria Naples, and savor the divine creations of our new chef, including a chilled Seafood & Raw Bar, carved to order orange and local Honey Glazed Smoked Ham, complete with a sweet dessert display.

Collier County Museum PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous reviews:Citrus, 457 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 435-0408Citrus has the potential to run with the big dogs on restaurant-rich Fifth Avenue. The seafood-centric menu celebrates the bounty of the Gulf and the Atlantic with selections from locally harvested stone crab and hogfish to New England-style clambakes. The dining room is appealing, with beautifully stylized fruit trees rendered in delicate strokes on the walls. Although our entrees delivered what they promised, the appetizers were disappointingly middle-of-the-road. Furthermore, the servers were dressed in shorts or jeans with shirts untucked, which creates a slovenly first impression on a starchy street where even linen shirts wouldnt dream of wrinkling. For starters, the Maine lobster purses lacked lobster flavor while the Florida fish cakes tasted too fishy. On the other hand, a simply seared lane snapper with tempura asparagus was very well executed, and the roast duck had supercrisp skin and moist meat. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere Reviewed November 2012Grouper & Chips, 338 Ninth St. N., Naples; 643-4577In an older strip plaza across U.S. 41 from the downtown NCH campus, Grouper & Chips is a self-described small, unpretentious hole-in-the-wall restaurant. It is, indeed, so small that you might find yourself rubbing elbows with other parties or waiting an hour for a table (reservations are not accepted). Takeout and delivery are options, but then youd miss out on the warm hospitality of the staff. Besides, once you order, food is quickly delivered. The menu is heavy on fried foods, but the conch fritters and grouper did not suffer from greasy excess; the fried shrimp, however, were overwhelmed by batter. You wouldnt expect to find it in a place like this, but the bouillabaisse is loaded with lobster, sea scallops, mussels, shrimp and chunks of grouper and is worth trying. Dessert shooters petite servings of Key lime pie and chocolate mousse are the perfect way to end a meal here. Food:Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2011Michelbobs Champion Ribs, 371 Airport Pulling Road, Naples; 643-7427Michelbobs signature spice rub enhances its slow-smoked Danish baby backs, a mustard and paprika blend presented in shakers on every table just in case you want an extra punch of flavor. If its smoked pork shoulder or chicken youre after, you might be less impressed. When all was said and done, and all saucy fingers were licked clean, the baby backs truly stood out from the rest of the meal. The flesh was tender enough to slip off easily and had those crispy edges that add a just the right amount of extra texture to the experience. The barbecued chicken had rubbery skin and lacked much in the way of seasoning. A smoked pork dinner had an ample stack of sliced meat, but it leaned toward the dry side. Among the side dishes, the smoky-sweet baked beans studded with chunks of pork were a real standout. Full bar. Food: Service:Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2012Roys, 26831 South Bay Drive, Bonita Springs; 498-7697No matter how many times Ive dined at Roys over the years, I still look forward to experiencing new flavors and being treated royally by the impeccable wait staff. With entrees in the $25-$30 range, its not inexpensive, but I doubt anyone leaves here complaining about the bill or the food or the service. Youll see some familiar appetizer offerings at Roys, such as carpaccio, calamari and ribs. But they are reconceived with the Asian-Pacific influences the chain is famous for: Think Wagyu beef with pears or minty fried squid rings with curry sauce. If the ocean of fish options at Roys leaves you floundering, theres a smart solution: Roys Trio ($32.95) consists of three small portions of different entrees. The grilled salmon came with zesty ponzu sauce; the mahi-mahi was crusted with macadamia nuts and paired with lobster essence; and the misomarinated b utterf ish had a lemon-ginger beurre blanc. It added up to a marvelous three-ring circus of flavors showcasing a trio of very different fish. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2012Seasons 52, 8930 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 594-8852This small chain has a lot going for it. Start with the regularly changing menu that features seasonal ingredients at their peak of flavor in dishes that forswear indulgence without sacrificing flavor (nothing contains more than 475 calories). Consider the globespanning wine list, which includes more than 100 selections (52 or more by the glass). Start with one of the flatbreads, cracker-thin pizzas carpeted with precisely arranged toppings and baked in a super-hot brick oven. The menu achieves a good balance of seafood and meats. An artichokestuffed shrimp dish was succulent and redolent of sage, while woodgrilled T-bone lamb chops were perfectly cooked and remarkably tender. Save room for dessert without guilt: Seasons 52s Mini Indulgences red velvet cake, pumpkin mousse and much more, served in shot glasses are the perfect way to end a meal without going over the edge.

Smothered chicken. Steak salad and lamb and eggplant pot stickers. Bread pudding with creme Anglaise. Chocolate turtle cheesecake. These are but a few of the dishes on which diners at St. Matthews House have been feasting in recent weeks, thanks to seven professional chefs who volunteered for the organizations Chopped Chefs Challenge. The competition offered area chefs the opportunity to do what St. Matthews chef Eric Delano does daily: Come up with a meal based on the donated foods that come in each day to the nonprofit organization that provides food, shelter and life-changing support to those in need. The final competition, pitting Mr. Delano against Crave Culinaires Brian Roland, took place Tuesday, with the competitors feeding St. Matthews House clients and a panel of celebrity judges that included Mayor John Sorey and Lt. Craig Weinbaum of East Naples Fire Control and Rescue (who was one of the contestants earlier in the challenge). The secret ingredient: pink candy corn. And the winner is Mr. Delano, by a mere seven votes. It was such a special series of events for me, Mr. Roland said just hours before the final challenge. Eric (Delano), Blake (Becker) and Fawn (Volkert) did a great job at bringing awareness to Southwest Florida of what St. Matthews House is and its mission. No matter who wins, we all win. St. Matthews wins, and thats what its all about. The public can watch these two talented chefs go head to head again at the Taste of Collier, set for Sunday, April 28, at Bayfront. In addition to Mr. Roland and Lt. Weinbaum, the chefs who took up the St. Matthews challenge were: Ron Casterline, Bernwood Grille & Catering; Andrew Hunter, The Bay House; Chad OConnor, RealFit Food; Amber Phillips, Sage; Lisa Resch, Carolina Catering Co.; and Kevin Takei, private chef. St. Matthews House continues to need contributions to keep the pantry stocked so that it can serve meals and distribute food packages to those in need.
