FOSTER KIDS HAVE THEIR FEELINGS, NOT THEIR FAMILIES. They remember compliments. They follow politics. Their wallets are fat with business cards. Foster kids move from home to home, forever adjusting, trying to feel like they belong, but careful not to get too comfortable before their case manager calls. When they move, they juggle heavy questions: Why dont you like me? Why cant I stay? Foster kids are patient. They are hopeful. They are lonely. They are scared. When they turn 18, they age out of the child welfare system. Many of them do not know how to drive. They must have WHERE TO? Foster children aging out of care at the age of 18 have few options. This could change.

C1 3D Initiative Launches First Regional Call to Action FUTURE AND OURSIt takes a village -or, in this case, a region -to change the lives of students for the better. Thats the philosophy behind the Southwest Florida Community Foundations first Regional Call to Action, one that aims to bring together a broad coalition of people to help teens prepare for meaningful careers, and, hence, better lives. The project called FutureMakers, is the culmination of the founda tions inaugural 3-D Project -data, dia logue and decisions -that began last fall. After mining data to identify regional need and bringing together stakeholders from across the region for dialogue and roundtable discussions, the 3D team determined that the widening educational gap the difference between the number of students going on to college or other postsecondary programs, and the number of educated workers needed is a critically important issue that could be addressed and impacted through a regional strat egy. The Regional Call to Action marks a change in the foundations philanthropic strategy. While it still offers grants to individual organizations for specific needs, its implementation of the call to action signals a start to a new funding model in which the foundation partners in collaboration with groups throughout the funding process. It reflects a shift that enables AND OURS AND AND HELPING STUDENTS BUILD THEIRSEE FUTURE, 4 Ap FutureMakers: Our first regional call to action | our GIVING MATTERS SEE 3D, 4 IMAG I NE A REGION WHERE ALL GRADUAT ing high school seniors are ignited by dreams of their futuredreams of mak ing a difference in their communities, nation and world. Imagine a community that swells with pride over the accomplishments of its future leaders.

We can launch tomorrows leaders into the education that readies them for success. It starts when together we become futuremakers. --3D Strategic Team Nearly a year ago the Southwest Florida Community Foundation shared a vision with the community around the idea of our five county region working together to impact an issue that is facing our Southwest Florida neighbors. We believed that this collective force could create a Regional Call to Action (RCA) that would ignite action, results, and engage local donors as well as create opportunities for funding from outside our area. From this vision, the 3D Initiative: Data, Dialogue and Decisions, was born; along with the commitment to move quickly to develop the first RCA. We were anxious to stop talking about prob lems and get to work solving problems with regional partners. As the Foundation had the opportunity to meet with Southwest Floridians about the issues they would like to see the RCA tackle we learned that our neigh bors wanted not only immediate action but measureable results. Additionally, potential funders from outside our area wanted opportunities to impact issues, not individual organizations and the assurance that the nonprofits in our area had the capacity to deliver a return on their investment. In todays philanthropic climate we are all anxious to move the needle in solving our most pressing problems. We want to know that our time and resources are really making a difference, and through the 3D Initiative the Foundation has developed a platform to launch and fund result driven projects.

We provide her and her family with support as well the latest information, and work t ogether 239.325.1440 | www.PremiereOnc.com NAPLES | BONITA SPRINGS | FORT MYERS | CAPE CORAL | EAST NAPLES Well, Ill be darned. There really is a Rip Van Winkle. The problem is, I cant figure out whether his alias is U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, or U.S. Rep. Trey Radel (District 19), or Collier County Commission Chairwoman Georgia Hiller, or Lee County Commission Chairman Cecil Pendergrass, or any of the elected officials sleeping on those commissions. Oh, and he might be one of the Sunshine States 67 elected sheriffs, too say, Ric Bradshaw in Palm Beach, or Bill Prummell in Charlotte.Take your pick. Maybe its the Sunshine State water. Or maybe its the little brown jug. In the case of Sen. Rubio and Rep. Radel, both have recently voted no let me repeat that word, one of Nancy Reagans favorites: (Just Say) NO when asked to support an act that would protect women from various acts of violence, ensure care for children after bad things happen to the women in their lives, provide grants to help law enforcement agencies make life a little safer for women, and so on. They probably dont realize (since theyve been sleeping for a long, long time, apparently), that violence against women, while a continuing problem at various levels of society, became starkly unfashionable in this country beginning roughly with the Salem witch trials. And that was in 1692-93, exactly 320 years ago. Fortunately for women and children (and for men who deem them worthy of equal treatment), the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 passed with strong bipartisan support in both the U.S. House and Senate. Somebody up there must be awake, at least. Meanwhile, in Lee County, named after the Confederate general who helped lead 258,000 Confederate soldiers to their deaths in defense of slavery and states rights, the county commission issued this statement last week, following in the footsteps of Collier County, to the south, a month earlier: Lee County, FL (March 26, 2013) Lee County Commission Chairman, Cecil Pendergrass, brought forth a resolution for consideration in support of the Second Amendment and the right of the people to keep and bear arms. The resolution received unanimous support from the Board and will be forwarded to Governor Scott and the Southwest Florida legislative delegation. Lee County joins Collier County, the City of Marco Island, and all 67 Sheriffs in Florida in support of the Second Amendment. I dont want to unnecessarily alarm these wonderful public servants who have unanimously chosen to receive about $85,000 each year so they can lead their constituents to a brighter future while snoozing peacefully in and out of commission chambers, but let me just shout loudly in their ears: HELLO? The Second Amendment, written primarily by James Madison, was already ratified that means we already voted to support it, so we dont have to now in 1789. And 1789 for anybody whos counting, was 224 years ago. Almost everybody from sea to shining sea supports the Second Amendment. We just cant agree on its limitations. But so what? Thats life in America. If you dont love it this land of dissent, this kingdom of clash you can either leave it, or vote more. Or you can just go to sleep, I suppose. All of these officials seem to exist in a state of torpor so profound that physicians would probably diagnose them as comatose.Or maybe they were just born sleeping, unlike the rest of us who were born squabbling over the Second Amendment and a few other small issues, such as where to find the best pizza. Maybe (perish the thought) these men and women have been sleeping for many decades now, like Rip Van Winkle once did. As you know, in the peerless Washington Irving story of the same name, old Rip, a simple, good-natured fellow, took a long walk into the Kaatskill mountains one day, only to become entangled with some bushyhaired hippies playing at nine-pins. While they rolled balls that even still echo along the mountains like peeling thunder, Old Rip settled in to sample their jug, again and again. Before long, hed fallen into a deep sleep. On a following cheery morning he awoke, climbed to his feet, retrieved his old flintlock, and wandered stiffly back down the mountain into civilized society. But he recognized no one. Unbeknown to him, it was Election Day, a custom hed never witnessed. They crowded round him, eyeing him from head to foot with great curiosity, Mr. Irving writes. (An) orator bustled up to him, and, drawing him partly aside, inquired on which side he voted? Rip stared in vacant stupidity. Another short but busy little fellow pulled him by the arm, and, rising on tiptoe, inquired in his ear, Whether he was Federal or Democrat? Rip was equally at a loss to comprehend the question. Finally, another elderly fellow got down to brass tacks. (He) demanded in an austere tone, what brought him to the election with a gun on his shoulder, and a mob at his heels, and whether he meant to breed a riot in the village? Alas! gentlemen, cried Rip, somewhat dismayed, I am a poor quiet man, a native of the place, and a loyal subject of the king, God bless him! Here a general shout burst from the bystanders A tory! a tory! a spy! a refugee! hustle him! away with him! Clearly, Mr. Irving was prophetic. If these contemporary Florida politicians are comfortable ignoring violence against women, or somehow think they have to spend valuable time ratifying the Second Amendment, they probably figure theres still a king, too. Ill let Mr. Irving explain it to them, even though hes been dead now for 154 years, since 1859. It was some time before (Rip) could get into the regular track of gossip, or could be made to comprehend the strange events that had taken place during his torpor. How that there had been a revolutionary war that the country had thrown off the yoke of old England and that, instead of being a subject of his Majesty George the Third, he was now a free citizen of the United States. The United States: a place with equal rights and (since 1789) a Second Amendment. Already. COMMENTARYRip Van Winkle ( o W w U m rogerWILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

On Tuesday, March 26, it was about the controversial California ballot initiative known as Prop 8, which has banned same-sex marriages in that state. The next day, the case challenging the constitutionality of DOMA, the federal Defense of Marriage Act, was heard. That case is called United States v. Windsor. Edie Windsor, now 83 years old, was married to a woman, Thea Spyer. They were a couple for 44 years. Edie and Thea met in the early 1960s, in New Yorks Greenwich Village. They hit it off. In 1967, Thea proposed marriage to Edie, even though they knew it wasnt a possibility. The couple lived together as though they were married, buying a house together, sharing their earnings and living life. In 1975, Ms. Spyer was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Edie cared for Thea as her MS progressed, causing paralysis and forcing her into a wheelchair. When, in 2007, doctors told Thea that she had only one year to live, she reiterated her proposal to Edie. The couple flew to Toronto, and on May 22, 2007, they were wed in a ceremony officiated by Canadas first openly gay judge, Justice Harvey Brownstone. Within a year, New York state, where the couple lived, officially recognized out-of-state same-sex marriages, although it took the state several more years to legalize such marriages performed in-state. With their Canadian marriage license and acceptance by New York state, one major institution remained that refused to recognize their formal declaration of lifelong love and commitment: The United States government. DOMA was signed into law by President Bill Clinton, on Sept. 21, 1996. The law states, In determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, or of any ruling, regulation, or interpretation of the various administrative bureaus and agencies of the United States, the word marriage means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and the word spouse refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife. DOMA passed Congress months before a national election, with solid bipartisan support. As President Clinton wrote this month in The Washington Post, however, he now opposes the law. He wrote that DOMA is incompatible with our Constitution. Because Section 3 of the act defines marriage as being between a man and a woman, samesex couples who are legally married in nine states and the District of Columbia are denied the benefits of more than a thousand federal statutes and programs available to other married couples. Thea died Feb. 5, 2009, at the age of 77. After losing her wife, Edie suffered a heart attack. As she recovered, she learned that federal estate taxes on the value of what Thea left her would cost her $363,000, an amount that would be zero if the government recognized their marriage as legal. Edie, who has been a lesbian-rights activist for decades, decided to fight back. She sued the U.S. government. Edie prevailed in the federal district court and then in the federal appeals court. Attorney General Eric Holder announced in February 2011 that the Obama administration would not be defending DOMA in court. You would think that would be the end of it. Thats where BLAG comes in, the five-member Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group of the U.S. Congress. The three Republicans House Speaker John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy voted to instruct the House Office of General Counsel to defend DOMA, since the Obama administration declined. The House hired the former solicitor general in the George W. Bush White House, Paul Clement, to defend DOMA. Reports are that Mr. Clement has spent $3 million in taxpayer funds to date on the case. Edies case was argued on Wednesday, March 27. Outside the Supreme Court, still wearing the engagement pin given to her by Thea back in 1967, Edie said, I know that the spirit of my late spouse Thea Spyer is right here watching and listening. In an earlier profile in OUT magazine, Edie recalled, The first time we ever danced using the wheelchair I would sit in her lap in the wheelchair the song on the radio was, Theres a place for us, theres a time for us. I cant even sing it because I cry. The song, Somewhere from West Side Story, goes, Someday. ... Somewhere. Well find a new way of living, Well find a way of forgiving Somewhere, Theres a place for us, A time and place for us. Thanks to Edie Windsor, the late Thea Spyer and millions of other brave souls, the time and place for marriage equality may well be here soon. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

They are called school administrators. In the wake of the Newtown, Conn., massacre, they have been punishing little children for making gunlike gestures with their fingers and other harmless horseplay. The people who run our schools must have been too busy brushing up on their zero tolerance policies to notice that Newtown was perpetrated with an AR-15, not with a toy or with a finger. We expect 5-year-olds to be childish. Whats the excuse for the people running our schools? Five-year-old Joseph Cruz brandished a gun made out of Legos in his day-care program while, in the words of the Barnstable Public School District in Hyannis, Mass., simulating the sound of gunfire. For a layman, thats called saying pow. Cruz got a stiff warning for using daycare toys inappropriately. A 5-year-old girl was suspended from kindergarten at Mount Carmel Area Elementary School in Northumberland County, Pa., after threatening to shoot classmates with her pink Hello Kitty gun that fires soapy bubbles. A mandatory psychological evaluation found, according to a news report, that the girl did not represent any threat to others. Whew. White Marsh Elementary in Maryland suspended two first-graders for playing cops and robbers on the playground. In true 21st-century fashion, the school board said it was forbidden from giving out more information due to confidentially requirements under the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). An 8-year-old in Prince William County, Va., was suspended for firing back with an imaginary gun after a friend shot him with an imaginary bow and arrow. Evidently, nothing happened to the other kid. This points to a disturbing bow and arrow loophole that could conceivably accommodate everything from imaginary poison darts to make-believe medieval siege weapons. The Al Capone of the zero-tolerance offenders is the daring second-grader in Anne Arundel County, Md., who chewed his strawberry breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun and then brazenly pointed it at a classmate. Park Elementary school suspended him for two days. Who defends this foolish lack of proportion? The American Association of School Administrators. Its executive director, Dan Domenech, told USA Today: Parents have to be aware that talking about guns or using your fingers to point like a gun is no longer tolerable or prudent. Why, pray tell? School shooters tend to be disturbed young men. In no case has a shooter ever been an adorable 5-year-old child. In the grips of a strange mania, school administrators believe that any symbolic representation of a gun, no matter how innocent, is all but indistinguishable from a real gun. This is not a mistake that gun owners make. The fake-finger gun doesnt do much for the average sportsman. It cant bring down a deer, and doesnt exactly light up the gun range. No matter. We dont have common sense; we have rules. We dont have judgment; we have bureaucratic procedure. Too often, our grown-ups are the ones desperately in need of adult supervision.

Her love and devotion for children and seniors on the Paradise Coast is evident by virtue of her service to numerous nonprofits in the community, including the YMCA, for which shes chairing the annual Sneaker Ball on April 25. With help from a team of her best get-the-job-done friends as co-chairs, she promises a night to remember and I have no reason to doubt that she will deliver. The oldest of five children born and raised in Detroit, she attended Catholic elementary and high schools in her hometown and then earned degrees at Central Michigan University and the University of Michigan in Dearborn. She came to Naples for the first time in 1978, to visit her grandparents who had retired here. She never left. My life in Naples has been full of rich experiences, mostly through being able to work for and with some amazing people, she says. Im grateful for the influences of mentors, teachers and friends Joe Greene, Wilma Boyd, Betty McLean, Chris Lombar do, S imone Lutgert, Renee Relf, Dr. Joseph Pergolizzi and many others. Her professional life has been rich and varied, from small company startups to larger entrepreneurial endeavors, from golf course development to a private Catholic school and, for the past 10 years, senior retirement living. She is now the executive director of the Arlington, a faith-based continuing care retirement community coming to Lely Resort. Her involvement with local charities is just as varied. She serves on the boards of directors for Bayshore CAPA and the East Naples Community Redevelopment Agency and is a board adviser for Dental Outreach of Collier County and SCORE. She belongs to the Womens Philanthropic Network and the Naples Womans Club. Her enthusiasm is contagious, and if you spend any time with her, you find out first hand that she is the go-to person for more than a few local leaders. Shes often asked by her peers and flock of followers: What are we doing next, Vicki? When questioned about how she accomplishes so much in a day, she credits Steve, her husband of 24 years, and the cadre of friends she considers family. About children, she says she has none by birth, but more than 300 by love. Perhaps her friend and former boss Renee Relf sums it up best by describing Vicki as effervescent, kind, compassionate and gracious. Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious No project is too big or too difficult for her.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 4-10, 2013 a drivers permit to take drivers ed. If their foster parents did not want the liability, they did not learn. If they want to keep their monthly stipend from the state, they have to stay in school. No mom, no dad, no car, no matter. They have to get out of bed and go to class. They cannot take a semester off to find their footing. They have paperwork to file. They best look perfect on paper. Good grades, good attendance, or goodbye money. But the very misfortunes that afflict foster kids are what motivate them. Their stories are not their identities. They want to prove the statistics wrong. Somewhere they believe theres more for them, they know they deserve more, they are worth more, they are better than this. A recent bill dubbed the Normalcy Bill has made its way through the Florida Legislature and was en route to the governors desk. The bill intends to give foster kids a more normal life by strengthening the rights of foster parents. It would allow caregivers to make parental decisions allowing kids to go on a field trip or go on a prom date without waiting for permission from the state. Another bill looks to extend foster care to the age of 21. Foster youths would have the option to stay or leave. But child welfare advocates, social workers and nonprofit leaders agree it would be premature to expect this bill to pass. Its stuck in committee. Extending care for every foster kid in the state for three years would cost a lot of money. Foster kids are grateful to be part of the big conversation in Tallahassee, but they say they want to see more from their communities they want more mentors, they want more transitional housing, they want to learn how to drive. They are still looking for structure and support, those inherent traits ingrained in parents. Even though they are thrown into adulthood when they age out, foster kids feel like they never really had a childhood. Some are eager to leave: Im 18. Im ready. Ive got this. Others are more honest. They say even when they put up a front, they need help. Heres a look through their eyes at their coming of age.The one to prove you wrongBRANDON JENNINGS POURS HIS HEART INTO everything. Hes just hoping something will hold. In a little over seven years, Brandon went through 10 to 15 foster homes and group homes. Soon as he would settle in, all of a sudden, out of nowhere, his case manager would call. The only thing I looked forward to when I was in foster care was getting out of foster care, he says. Brandon was placed in the child welfare system twice. He was taken away from his biological mother because of her addiction to crack cocaine, officials said. He was adopted at age 2. and stayed with his adoptive mother for eight years. He says she used to beat him with PVC pipe and metal curtain rods. When he would wake up, he would have to make his bed, sit on the floor and stare at the wall. He had toys, but he was not allowed to take them out of their boxes. One night Brandon does not know what he did his adoptive mother made him take his clothes off. He says she tied him to a pole in the yard and made him sit in an ant bed. When she took him back inside, she hung him up by his hands and left him there for the rest of the night, he says, his feet hanging off the floor. Shortly thereafter, Brandon was removed from her care. Sitting in that room all day, you had no choice but to think, Oh, my God. What do I want to be when I grow up? Brandon says. I had big dreams. I had nothing but big dreams. I wanted to be a pilot, a judge. I always wanted to be something really big and Ive always wanted to prove people wrong. Brandon feels people throw labels on foster kids. They expect them to be in-and-out of jail, strung out on drugs. No, he says. I want to prove you wrong. When he tells people hes going to Edison State College and working at FineMark National Bank & Trust in Fort Myers, people look back at him in shock, because I proved them wrong. Just because I had a horrible life, look at where I am now, he says. Back then, you used to pick on me and everything, but here I am now, proving you wrong. It makes me feel good to prove somebody wrong, to show somebody I can do something. It makes me feel lovely inside, because if I didnt do anything, basically thats saying, I give in. You win. Mmmnnn. Im not that kind of person. Im too good for that. Brandon turned 18 in May. He must stay in school to receive his Road to Independence check, a monthly stipend from the state to help youths who have aged out of foster care. Initially, his check was $1,256. Considering his part-time wages and his Pell Grant, Brandons check has been cut to $924. He pays $687 a month in rent. If I lose my check, Im homeless, he says. FineMark Bank has assumed the role of Brandons mentor. He wants to be a child psychologist. Staffers will guide him along his way. In return, they have asked him to commit to one charity, make good grades and save money. Theyve given me so many insights, Brandon says of the FineMark staff. I can see that they care, that they support me in everything I do There are plenty (of foster kids) as good as me, they deserve the same experience, but they didnt get it. Aimee McLaughlin, director of communications for the Childrens Network of Southwest Florida, the lead agency funded by the Department of Children and Families to oversee foster care services in the judicial circuit including Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties, would like to see more businesses and community partners sign on as mentors. There are 109 foster youths older than of 18 enlisted in Independent Living services in her circuit. She anticipates 30 more foster kids will age out this year. Mentors will make the difference for a youth aging out of care, she says. Mentors give them someone to talk to, someone to connect to. When you dont have family to turn to, your mentor will be your safety net. You will have a more successful life because you have someone you can count on. Brandon appreciates the intentions of the state and the Independent Living Program, a program designed to help foster youths become self-sufficient through life-skills training, education, career counseling, social support and therapy. But those services cannot replace the hand of a parent. When you age out, its like youre jumping in the deep end, he says. Theres really no one to walk you down the steps from 3-foot to 4-foot to 5-foot deep. Its like someone just pushed you right into 6 feet of water. And hopefully you can swim. If not, hey, thats the way it is.Im the one successFRANCIS JEUNE PACKED UP HIS POSSESsions on his 18th birthday. He sat with his clothes, his laptop and his skateboard when the real world hit: He had aged out of foster care. Most of the time when you hear about kids who have aged out of foster care, its never good, Francis says. He was eager to leave the system, but he was scared to go. What if he wanted to go back? How was he going to pay his bills? What was he going to eat? Where was he going to live? As a foster child, I cant go back home, Francis says. Im stranded Thats the worst feeling in the world. Francis mother passed away when he was 9. She died from a fever in Haiti. His uncle took him in, but Francis says he could not stay because his uncles girlfriend did not like him. He was placed in a Boca Raton group home at age 13. Here, Francis had an abrupt awakening. Sitting in a room with 14 other foster youths, the boys were told one of them would be successful. The others would either end up homeless, incarcerated or dead. Nine months out of foster care, Francis sees these numbers tapering off quick. Three of his friends from the group home are now dead. Many are missing, some are homeless. One boy robbed a man with a shotgun to the mouth. He was arrested. He was released. He was arrested again for murder. Im the one, says Francis, thinking back on the statistics. Im the one success. I feel like that. But why am I the only one to be successful? Six months before his June birthday, Francis started paying attention. He started asking questions: How do you make rice? How do you clean chicken? How am I supposed to make it to my doctors appointments? How do I talk to people without sounding obnoxious? He had been attending Independent Living courses, classes the state starts giving foster youths at the age of 13 to help them acquire life skills, but he was not interested. Every time he sat down, he was like, Oh, Lord. Here we go with another lecture. You see it in every kid, Francis says. Six months prior to their 18th birthday, their whole personality changes When my six months kicked in, I was like, I got to get ready. Its time to stop playing around and get serious. Francis applied to Vita Nova, a transitional independent living service contracted out by ChildNet, the lead agency managing foster care in Palm Beach County. Currently, 189 foster youths ages 18-22 are receiving services through Vita Nova. The county expects 65 more youths to age out this year. Francis was accepted to the Vita Nova Village in West Palm Beach. His apartment feels like a dorm room lamps with the thrift-store price tags still on them, broken vinyl mini blinds drooping down on one side, a bag of Goldfish crackers by the books on his desk. Without Vita Nova, I dont know what I would do, Francis says. This is FOSTERFrom page 1 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYFineMark Bank has stepped in to be a mentor to Brandon Jennings. VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYManushka will age out of the system in September, before she graduates high school. When people question where their tax money goes, she wants to tell them, It goes to kids like me, to kids like us ... Were a good cause.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 4-10, 2013 NEWS A9 the best place ever. They help you with everything applying for jobs, writing resumes, budgeting your money, they help you study, they help you with driving lessons. Francis appreciates the proposed legislation to strengthen the rights of foster parents and extend the age of foster care. But those bills would not have applied to him. He feels if there were more transitional living spaces such as Vita Nova, there would be more successful foster kids. So many kids age out and you know for a fact theyre not ready, they know theyre not ready. What are they going to do? Francis asks. Theyre getting kicked out. They dont have a choice. Soon as they hit the real world, it caves in on them. Vita Nova CEO Jeff DeMario agrees with Francis; he would like to see more transitional housing. If the state wants to carry the title of parent, we have to follow the definition better, he says. We have to stick it out. I did not leave home til I was 24. I was a mess. I would not be CEO of a company if I was kicked out at 18. A student at Palm Beach State College, Francis wants to be a nurse. He receives $892 from his monthly RTI check. He pays $250 in rent at Vita Nova. If I was not here, Id be paying $750, he says. Plus utility bills, phone bill, bus fare, groceries. How can you be expected to live off $892 for a whole month? Thats very impossible. His check made him confront another harsh reality. Two months out of foster care, my stepdad called me asking for money, Francis says. Thats when it hit me. Who can I trust? I cant even trust family. The one about to age outMANUSHKA SPEAKS LIKE THE PRESIDENT and sings like Nina Simone. She goes to Ida Baker High School in Cape Coral, takes Advanced Placement classes and expects more from herself than her 4.11 GPA. A member of chess club and ballet club, she has found that balance between strategy and grace. She wears an owl pendant around her neck, appropriate for the wisdom she exudes in her youth. Manushka will age out of the child welfare system in September, months before she graduates high school. Until she has the right to do so herself, the state will not release her last name. The thought of turning 18 feels scary and exhilarating to Manushka. Eighteen is when it all ends. No more foster care. Youre on your own, she says. You have to become an adult all of a sudden. Take care of you, go to work, go to school Its like you have to be adult before you even know who you are. Manushka would like to see the state extend foster care to the age of 21. It would give us more time to find ourselves, she says. It would give us a little more help before we have to go out and say, Hey, Im not just a foster kid. I have a name. I have a face. I have aspirations. Im more than your assumptions. I know who I am. When she thinks of other teenagers turning 18, she says, They get to go out and start life anew. We go out already labeled When people hear youre a foster kid, they dont think you will make it far. Manushka lives in a group home in North Fort Myers. She wakes up at 4 oclock in the morning to start preparing for school. When she comes home, she expects more girls to be there. This state of constant change makes some days really hard. Youve got to keep your grades up. Youve got to keep your head up, she says. At the end of the day, you have to know theres something more for you. Manushka entered the child welfare system when she was 16. My story used to be my secret, she says. She did not tell it, because she felt ashamed. Now she shares it, so other girls will not feel alone. I was sexually abused by my Dad for five years, she says. But as soon as she says it, she transcends it. The sadness of her past overshadowed by the brightness that burns through her eyes when she looks to her future: I still feel like I can do anything. When Manushka lies down at night, she writes. She does not journal about her day, she writes stories. I like to pick a place and make it beautiful, she says. I try to describe it with the most beautiful imagery. She describes the shared saga of foster care by saying, No one ever cared for us. We never had a good example. Our community has to be our good example. And the one thing she would like her community to remember when it comes to foster kids: Even when we say no we dont need help, we really need help. Manushka plans to go to law school. Being in foster care, she has spent much of her life in court. Nothing really good happens unless the judge is willing to hear our side of the story, she says. So she plans to study law and represent other foster youths. Judge Lee Ann Schreiber oversees the juvenile dependency docket in Lee County, thereby terminating parental rights and placing children in foster care. The deputy sheriff who watches over her courtroom says if the proceedings of dependency court were to be characterized in terms of medical specialties, Judge Schreiber would be a heart surgeon. I cant always grant a child what they want, but I can certainly listen to them, Judge Schreiber says. By giving them a voice, youre giving them some semblance of control when everything feels out of control. Judge Schreiber sees some foster youths in her courtroom who would benefit from continuing foster care. She sees others who have been in the system so long, they cant wait to get out of it. The Legislature will discuss extending foster care services to the age of 21. Some states have already done this, but Floridas not real keen on it due to cost, Judge Schreiber says. The state does not reject it as a bad idea, but funding is an issue, as in many social service programs. Judge Schreiber sees the consequences of not extending care as more homelessness, poverty, incarceration, pregnancies, more foster girls turning into single moms. She has seen these realities play out, but the more overwhelming observation she has made regarding foster kids: So many are so grateful for any small thing you do.The one who was able to stayJASMINE GLOVER WAS PLACED IN THE CHILD welfare system at age 15. She says her mother abused her physically and verbally. When people think of children that grew up in the system, Jasmine says, they believe those children will follow in the footsteps of their parents. But Jasmine feels like she has been given a second set of parents. I love my foster parents like they were my birth parents, she says. Theyve taken care of me so long, I feel like they are my birth parents. Jasmine has lived with the same foster family for three years. She calls her foster mom, Mom. She calls her foster dad, Dad. She turned 18 and aged out of the system in November, but she was not anxious. She was confident. Her foster family had invited her to stay. A junior at Port Charlotte High School, Jasmine intends to pursue a career in international business. As a child, she was forced to stay inside. Now she wants to travel. She wants to be a translator. Currently studying French and Japanese, she plans to take Chinese and Korean in college. Being in the system and having a past full of hurt and injustice makes it hard for us to express ourselves and see our own potential, Jasmine says of foster youths. I am very fortunate my foster family took me in. Jasmines foster family also took in five of her sisters. After raising four children of their own, Kevin and Dawn Koehler looked at each other like, Well, we still have room at the table. We still have leftovers, so they decided to foster.Having raised four grown children, Mrs. Koehler does not feel 18-year-olds are ready to be on their own. Considering the instability inherent with foster children, she feels they could use some more security. She knew state services would still be available to Jasmine after she aged out of the system, but she worried about how accessible these services would be. Shes just like my daughter, just like one of my own, Mrs. Koehler says. She still has high school to finish. Shes getting ready for college and all of the changes that come along with that. I want to be there with her and for her. I want to make sure she feels secure in all of her choices. When problems arise, I want her to know Im here. Ill help her through whatevers going on. And I want to be there for the happy times, too. Mrs. Koehler would like to see more parents step up to be foster parents. But when she expresses this to others, they often say, Oh, I could never do that. I could never give the child up. Mrs. Koehler reassures them, Taking them in, I know its going to hurt me. But the good that I get outweighs the hurt that I go through.The one who lost his wayIF IT WERE NOT FOR HIS FOSTER PAR-ENTS, Otto Phillips says he would have been homeless on his 18th birthday. Otto aged out of foster care in March 2007. Leaving his Boca Raton group home, his former foster parents welcomed him back in. He paid them rent out of his RTI check. Otto says it wasnt much, a couple hundred bucks. This seems common among foster parents and youth who have aged out of care. Otto continues to spend holidays with his foster parents, a lesbian couple. When their foster license expired, they were not able to adopt him. Gay adoption bans were overturned in Florida in 2010. My life would have been different, Otto says. I would not have had to go to a group home. I would have had a good place to live with good people. They would have taught me how to drive. They would have helped me get a car. My whole life would have had a better outlook if I could have stayed put rather than living on my own.Now 24 years old, Otto knows how to drive. He borrowed a car from a friend and taught himself. I have a car, but it doesnt run, Otto says. Ive had two cars with blown engines because I didnt get the oil changed like I was supposed to because I didnt know what I was doing. Recently, Otto went to Tallahassee with Florida Youth SHINE, an advocacy group made up of former foster youths, to testify in front of the Senate. He told them how he was placed in the system when he was 5 because he was growing up in an abusive home, his moms boyfriend molesting his sister, his mom heavy into drugs. He told them how his grandmother took him in. She died when he was 15. Then he went back into the system, living in three different places in six months. He told them when he aged out, he was lucky to live with his foster parents until he graduated Atlantic High School in Delray Beach. When he moved out on his own, he started to slip. He enrolled in Florida Atlantic University. He changed his major from nursing to business to criminal justice. The first couple semesters his grades were good. Then he stopped going to class. He failed out. He lost his RTI check. He got kicked out of his place. Just because the state says were adults, were not adults, Otto says. Were not ready to move out on our own. Were not ready to be productive members of society. At 18, not many people are. But we have a disadvantage. We dont have parents. That makes it even harder. Otto found Vita Nova. He moved into the transitional living village. He enrolled in Palm Beach State College. He made all Bs. He got his RTI check back. He earned his associates degree. Living in West Palm Beach, Otto kept working as a special needs counselor at the YMCA in Boca Raton. Took a train and two buses to get there. He worked there four years. Now he helps foster youths transition into adult life, as a peer mentor at Vita Nova. Eventually, he wants to go back to school and earn his bachelors degree in social work. What he wants to impress upon foster youths more than anything else: Take as much help as you can get. If somebodys willing to help you, take it. VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYJasmine Glover aged out of the system in November. Her foster parents asked her to stay in their home.

Day at the ballpark is a hit for Immokalee students SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYImagine attending your first professional baseball game and, even more unimaginable, participating in the pregame ceremony or working the entire game as a batboy. Thats exactly what The Immokalee Foundation students experienced recently at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers. The spring training home of the Boston Red Sox was the site of oncein-a-life opportunities for nine Immokalee High School students and two Florida Gulf Coast University students who job-shadowed Red Sox staff and participated in game day activities. Prior to game time, five TIF students partnered with Red Sox personnel to learn the business of baseball and were amazed to learn about all of the jobs that exist behind the scenes. Baseball is not just players and coaches, Regine Francois reflected afterward, I never imagined how everything comes together to make the game happen. Daniel Hernandez noted that, If not for The Immokalee Foundation, I would have never had the chance to learn of all the job opportunities. Junette Desrosier learned the importance of corporate partnerships and watched the game from the control room. Marco Hernandez participated in stadium operations and transportation. Migdalia Pena was responsible for administrative duties and assisting environmental volunteers. As game time approached, six TIF students warmed up to be on the field. Immokalee High School senior Olivia Tercero rocked the park with her traditional rendition of the national anthem. Manson Vilsaint was joined by Lee County commissioners Cecil Pendergrass and Larry Kiker on the pitchers mound, to throw out the first pitch. Christopher Oriz started the game when he declared, Play ball! Once the game began, Monique Williams, Eduardo Sanchez and Jean Baptiste were on the field for nine innings as batgirl and batboys, retrieving equipment for the Red Sox and visiting Pittsburgh Pirates. This day at the ballpark was one of the many life, educational and career experiences made possible by the generosity of TIF donors. Funds were raised at last Novembers TIF Charity Classic Celebration and Fund-A-Dream auction. The 2013 Charity Classic Celebration is slated for Saturday, Nov. 16, at The RitzCarlton, Naples. TIF has a range of programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and vocational school, mentoring and tutoring, and opportunities for broadening experiences and life skills development.

Ed Sieber will share his experiences with the 1945 sinking of the Yamato, the largest and most powerful warship of its time, at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 7 the 68th anniversary of the sinking at the Museum of Military Memorabilia at Naples Municipal Airport. The public is welcome. Admission is free. Launched in 1941 and twice the size of any other battleship, the Yamato was a symbol of Japanese military power. As American forces prepared for the invasion of Okinawa, the Yamato was intercepted nearly 200 miles from the closest American warship. A coordinated attack by more than 400 planes from a dozen U.S. aircraft carriers sunk the Yamato, which now lies at the bottom of the East China Sea. Mr. Sieber flew a SB2C Helldiver, a dive-bomber aircraft with the Bombing Squadron 82 based on the U.S.S. Bennington. He was awarded the Navy Cross for the hit on the Yamato. He also was the recipient of a Silver Star for an earlier attempt to sink the ship, as well as two Distinguished Flying Crosses and four air medals for 31 combat missions. The Museum of Military Memorabilia, founded in 2006, has collected more than 10,000 artifacts associated with military history with the goal of honoring veterans and creating a greater understanding of military conflicts among present and future generations.

While the free nature walks run through April, the season is winding down, so on a recent perfect afternoon, I decided to take a busmans holiday from my job as volunteer guide and stroll on my own, keeping an eye out for little things that are often overlooked, such as lichens. (I entertain myself with alliteration.) Then I thought of how sound combinations are like lichens themselves, things linked and interdependent, creating a new, sometimes ubiquitous entity. A lichen, and there are more than 25,000 species in almost all climates on the planet, is an algae and a fungus in a symbiotic relationship. (Like lichens. Like lichens. Like lichens. I repeated the phrase to amuse myself.) On the Clam Pass boardwalk, I was on the lookout for lichen, and I was not disappointed. These organisms, sometimes used to indicate air quality and some species used in the manufacture of dyes, can be either twoor three-dimensional. On a nearby mangrove I spotted a visually pleasing combination of both types: one was a flash of color, the other a tiny bush. I thought of how many times I have ignored their beauty. At the bridge, I stopped for a moment to watch kayakers paddle lazily southward toward the beginning of the 3-mile kayak and canoe trail. They seemed so integrated into the scene that I thought for a moment that perhaps Lower Clam Bay had been made by a higher power just for paddlers. (I know my mind was wandering, but sometimes a wandering mind uncovers something really important. I wasnt looking at a screen 20 inches in front of my nose. Instead, I was opening my eyes to the natural world.) At the beach on the deck a level below the restaurant, Myrtle Snider, a retired nurse and Conservancy Clam Pass guide, was giving a shell talk to guests Les and Joann Teague from Michigan. Her shell collection displayed on the table, Myrtle held up a murex. I eavesdropped to hear her say, A species of murex have a sac containing a liquid used in the manufacture of purple dye. Then she made a biblical connection and told the Teagues that Lydia, a follower of Paul, is described in Acts as a seller of purple, probably from a murex. Myrtle fingered the sharp protrusions on the univalve shell as she continued her lesson. Today a species of murex is still used to make purple dye, but it takes 12,000 murex to make 1.4 grams of dye enough to color the hem of a royal garment. The Michiganders look impressed. I left the shell talk and walked the beach to Clam Pass. Hoards of blackbacked skimmers, terns, gulls and smaller groups of sanderlings were pretty much in discrete groups, motionless, resting. Folks walking the beach made a conscious effort to skirt around the flocks so as not to disturb the birds, many of which are long-distance migrators. Thanks go to Conservancy of Southwest Florida volunteer Bonnie Michaels for placing signs at the restaurant and on the beach asking that beachgoers try to steer clear of the resting birds. I admired the largest group of skimmers resting after a long migration from their New England nesting grounds. Their candy-corn colored beaks all pointed in the direction of the wind. Less wind resistance, more tranquility. That made sense to me. Then I remembered that a group of skimmers is called a conspiracy. I perked up my ears but didnt hear any whispering. Once I reached the pass I was reminded of the jubilant note Conservancy volunteer Tom Cravens sent recently to our fellow guides: The best news is that on Saturday, March 16, 2013, at 10:02 a.m., Clam Pass was opened to the Gulf of Mexico! Now at ebb tide, the water was indeed flowing out from the backwaters and into the Gulf. But whereas the cut at the mouth was wide a few days ago, it seemed to be narrowing. Could it be? My throat felt constricted as I watched the brackish water from the estuary snake its way around what seemed to be new sand deposition and out into open water. Be attentive and patient, I told myself, you might yet know what the water is saying. Art Ritas is a Conservancy of Southwest Florida volunteer nature guide.

Drought sparks feeding frenzy at Corkscrew Swamp A feeding frenzy at Audubons Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary is creating unparalleled wildlife viewing along the 2.25-mile boardwalk that meanders through the sanctuarys cypress forest to Lettuce Lake. Drier-than-normal seasonal drought conditions have created a greater concentration of fish in the lake, drawing dozens of species of wading birds to feed there. A phenomenon that happens only once or twice every 10 years, the feeding frenzy is expected to continue for two to three weeks.Roseate spoonbills, wood storks, great and snowy egrets, heron, ibis and dozens more species of wading birds are regular visitors to Lettuce Lake, as are raccoons and alligators. Barred owls, now nesting a few yards from the lake, are also seen.Gators are entertaining visitors with frisky behavior as they head into their mating season. As the drought continues into spring, the alligators will increase their scampering and bellowing. Near the heart of the western Everglades, Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary comprises almost 13,000 acres of land owned and protected by the National Audubon Society since 1954. The entrance is 15 miles from I-75 on Immokalee Road. The visitor center, which has a theater and a tearoom, is open daily from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Entrance fees cover two consecutive days of admission and are $12 for adults, $6 for college students with ID; $4 for ages 6-18 and free for children 6 and younger. National Audubon Society members who present their ID card enjoy a 50 percent discount. For more information, call 3489151 or visit www.corkscrew.audubon.org.

Since then, one peoples trash has been transformed into another peoples rich cultural treasure. Besides evidence of the Calusas artistic and tool-making prowess on the site, remnants of their diet remain as well: the fossilized bones of fish, turtle, raccoon, deer, sharks, rodents and other things. There is still much left to be discovered, Ms. Miracco says. Finding more ornamental things made from shell is very exciting to us, Ms. Miracco says. Something that they wore in their wonderful festivals things that might help us understand them. The ideal thing would be to find another Marco Cat, she adds, referring to a 6-inch-tall wooden sculpture found preserved in airless muck in a famous 1896 dig on Key Marco, what is now Old Marco. Its not very often you find wooden artifacts in a prehistoric site. We kid about looking for the second Marco Cat we know thats not going to happen. The Key Marco Cat is at the Smithsonian. The Marco Island Historical Museum has had it on loan and is interested in having it returned to Marco permanently, a move that would require the museum to gain official museum accreditation. In the meantime, finds from The Big Sift will be displayed at the museum The Big Sift is part of a plan by the Marco Island Historical Society to study the Caxambas area as a vein of Calusa history. Partly funded by the city, the study began more than a year ago when workers assessed the sites historic value. So far, digs have uncovered Calusa pottery and shell tools dating back 250 to 2,700 years. The MIHS has spent about $30,000 on the study, which is directed by Joseph Mankowski, president of the Fort Lauderdale-based firm Advanced Archeology Inc. Marco Island resident Gene Erjavec, field director for Advanced Archeology, will supervise the next round of sifting. For more than a decade, Mr. Erjavec, an archaeologist and history enthusiast, was hired by the city of Marco Island to monitor any digging it had to do for sewer installation and similar kinds of projects. He helped make sure sensitive areas were protected so history could be uncovered 200, 300, 1,000 years later. I just didnt want to see it slip into the cracks, he says.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 4-10, 2013 Move it or lose itFive exercises to help seniors stay in the game SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYFor Americans 65 and older, falling down can be the worst thing to happen to them, according to statistics from the National Council on Aging, which also reports: One in three seniors experiences a significant fall each year. Every 18 seconds, a senior is admitted into an emergency room after losing balance and hitting the ground. Every 35 minutes, an elderly person dies from a fall. The projected cost in health-care expenses for 2020 due to fall-related injuries in the United States is $55 billion, says Karen Peterson, the author of Move with Balance: Healthy Aging Activities for Brain and Body. She is also the founder and director of Giving Back, a nonprofit organization that grows and spreads programs that support senior health. Its important for seniors to keep moving and learning. Thats what helps improve balance and coordination, and even helps build new neural pathways, says Ms. Peterson. But if youre rather frail, or just very fearful of falling, youre less likely to get up and move around. A fun, social program of games and activities that includes exercises specifically designed for seniors helps them address multiple issues, including those that tend to keep seniors sedentary, she adds. Ms. Petersons program of exercises that she describes as suitable for ages 55 to 105 won the MindAlert Award from the American Society on Aging. Here are some of the moves she recommends: The cross-crawl: After various light warm-ups, begin with the basic cross-crawl, which focuses on the fundamentals of balance. March in place, lifting the knees high. At the same time, reach across and touch the lifted knee with the opposite hand or elbow; alternate and keep going. This can be done sitting, standing or lying down. Forward toe-touch dancer: This exercise can be done with a chair for assistance if necessary. With feet placed shoulder-width apart, simultaneously extend the left foot and right arm forward. Keep left toes pointed down, touching the floor; or for more difficulty, maintain the toes a few inches off the floor. Repeat this move with left arm and right foot. Hold each pose for several seconds, and increase holding time. Side-step walk: Bring right foot across the left and step down three to five inches away from the left foot, ankles crossed. The closer the feet, the harder it is to balance. Alternate crossing the foot in front and then behind the other foot as you move along; repeat several times, then do the same with opposite feet. As a bonus challenge, try a reading exercise from a vision card, designed for stimulating the brain/visual system, while sidestepping. The cat jump: This activity serves as practice in case of a fall; the muscle memory of the movement will be etched in your body. Bend your knees in a squat. Jump a little off the ground with both feet and land softly, like a cat, without jarring your body. Repeat until you are confident in your ability to prevent a spill. Counting backward: To exercise the vestibular system, close your eyes and count backward from 100 by threes. Research shows that most falls are preventable, Ms. Peterson says. These and other exercises, performed regularly, are a great way to achieve safety and a revitalized lifestyle. Move with Balance also recommends several ways to make each exercise more challenging once it is mastered. Its not fun if youre not conquering a challenge, the author says.

The Fitness-to-Drive Screening Measure can be completed by caregivers or family members who have been a passenger in a vehicle driven by an older driver within the past three months. After completing the questionnaire, users receive a rating profile of the older driver, recommendations that can be shared with health professionals and links to resources, such as availability of alternative transportation options. While an on-the-road evaluation, conducted by an occupational therapist who is a certified driving rehabilitation specialist, is ideal for assessing an older adults driving ability, such evaluations are not accessible to everyone because of the cost and the limited number of professionals who can administer the test, says Sherrilene Classen, lead developer of the Fitness-to-Drive Screening Measure. We know from our research and others that drivers do not give valid self-reports, says Ms. Classen, an associate professor of occupational therapy at the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions. Most everybody thinks they are driving better than they actually are. Because we dont have the evaluators to assess the 36 million older adults who may potentially at some stage require a driving evaluation, we went to the next best step, which is involving their caregivers or family members. In studies to determine the accuracy of caregiver and family members assessments, UF researchers compared their evaluations of older drivers to professional evaluations of the same older drivers and found that the caregiver and family members ratings were consistent and reliable.The online questionnaire takes about 20 minutes to complete. Four short videos provide stepby-step instructions for each section. Users respond to questions about the older persons driving history and are asked to rate performance on 54 driving skills, such as staying within lane markings, turning left across multiple lanes when there is no traffic light and merging onto a highway. On the basis of the responses, the screening tool classifies the older driver in one of three categories: accomplished driver, routine driver or at-risk driver. An accomplished driver rating indicates there are no immediate concerns and the driver should consider being screened on an annual basis. Routine drivers may be fit to drive, but there are signs of difficulty with driving in challenging or complex traffic situations. Atrisk drivers are advised to stop driving until they speak to a health-care provider. A summary report includes specific recommendations that can be printed and shared with a health professional.The results give the physician or the occupational therapist a profile from which they can see the drivers competencies and problem areas, said Ms. Classen, who serves as director of UFs Institute for Mobility, Activity and Participation. We hope this tool helps facilitate conversations about driving issues. In many cases, older drivers who exhibit difficulties can continue to drive with the assistance of several different interventions. Occupational therapists can offer training on skills such as visual scanning of the roadway and can help drivers plan routes to avoid potential hazards. Assistive devices, such as seat pads that raise the driver and improve his or her line of sight, can address physical changes that affect driving. Sometimes a referral to another health provider, such as an ophthalmologist who can diagnose and treat a vision condition, can solve the problem. We have a range of options to keep people on the road longer and safer, and in the case of folks who cannot drive or are no longer fit to drive, we are able to provide them with a community mobility plan, including alternative transportation options and travel training, so they stay integrated in their communities, Ms. Classen says. The UF Fitness-to-Drive Screening Measure can be accessed at www.fitnesstodrive.phhp.ufl.edu. It is also available on the American Occupational Therapy Association and AAA websites. UF does not collect data from users responses, and results are anonymous. Ms. Classen and colleagues at AAA have also developed Smart Features for Older Drivers, another free, online resource that offers recommendations for vehicle features that address physical, visual and cognitive changes that affect older drivers. For example, keyless entry and ignition, power mirrors and seats, thick steering wheels and larger dashboard controls are beneficial for drivers with arthritic hands. The guide has been recently updated to include current vehicle models. It also lists vehicles that have the recommended features. Visit www.seniordriving.aaa. com/smartfeatures for more information.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA30 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 4-10, 2013 BY DR. MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickWhen I adopted a second adult cat a few months ago, I knew I was at risk for having one cat or the other or both avoiding the litter box. And indeed, it wasnt long before I found that one of the cats was skipping the box. While I was able work out the problem pretty quickly through trial and error, for a couple of weeks I knew I was in good company. Thats because failure to use a litter box is the top behavior complaint of cat lovers, sending countless cats to shelters every year. But that doesnt have to be the sad outcome, if youre willing to work on the problem. The first step in getting a cat to use the box is to make sure theres not a medical condition driving the behavior and that means a trip to your veterinarian for a complete workup. Urinary tract infections and diseases such as diabetes make consistent litter box use impossible for even the most well-intentioned cat. You cannot hope to get your cat to use the box again until any health issues have been resolved. If your cat checks out fine, you need to start working to make sure that everything about the box is to your cats liking. The second rule of solving a litter box problem: If the cat isnt happy, no one will be happy. Heres what to look for. Cleanliness Cats are fastidious animals, and if the litter box is dirty, they look elsewhere for a place to go. Clean the box frequently twice a day is ideal and make sure its completely scrubbed clean and aired out on a weekly basis. Having an additional litter box may help, too. In my case, the problem was a matter of two cats who didnt want to share (and really, who can blame them?). I followed the rule of thumb: One box per cat, plus one more. Id always intended to ramp up to three boxes at the time I introduced the second cat, and if I had, I probably would never have had any issues. Box type and filler Many choices people make to suit their own tastes conflict with the cats sense of whats agreeable. A covered box may seem more pleasing to you, but your cat may think its pretty rank inside, or scary. Likewise, scented litters may make you think the box smells fine, but your cat may disagree not only is the box dirty, he reasons, but it also has this extra clean odor he cant abide. Start with the basics: a very large box with unscented clumping-style litter. You dont have to buy an official litter box, by the way; large, shallow storage containers and sweater boxes (lids off, of course) make great litter boxes. Location Your cats box should be away from his food and water, in a place he can get to easily and feel safe. Consider a place from a cats point of view: Choose a quiet spot where he can see whats coming at him. A cat doesnt want any surprises while hes in the box. With multiple cats, try to spread out the boxes so no cat feels his territory is overrun by another cat. Make the area where your cat has had mistakes less attractive by cleaning it thoroughly with a pet-odor neutralizer (available from pet-supply retailers). Discourage reuse by covering the area with foil, plastic sheeting or plastic carpet runners with the points up. If you just cant seem to get the problem resolved, ask your veterinarian for a referral to a veterinary behaviorist. These veterinarians are skilled in behavioral problem-solving and are able to prescribe medications that may make the difference during the retraining period.

B6 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE LOCAL BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE INDUSTRIES BSECTIONWEEK OF APRIL 4-10, 2013 ITS MAD, ITS INSANE, ITS CRAZY, BABY. Its the nature of the NCAA Division I college basketball playoffs, known as March Madness in theory a series of amateur games free of that purity spoiler known as the profit motive. But theory and reality are two different countries. The reality is this: Young, unpaid players who reach the final rounds rake in millions of dollars for virtually all the orbiting adults and institutions in the wide university system and business communities around them. Bernard Thompson. Brett Comer. Sherwood Brown. Eddie Murray. Chase Fieler and a few more. All are members of Florida Gulf Coast Universitys previously unheralded Atlantic Sun Conference team, the Eagles, who made it to the Sweet 16 last week before bowing out as Americas Cinderella darlings and giant slayers. The Eagles beat Georgetown and San Diego State but not the University of Florida, which advanced one more round to the Elite Eight. Only the Final Four (Saturday) and the National Championship game (Monday) remain to be played. The dollar take starts with the viral buzz not for them, the amateurs, but for others, the professionals. Ive been in higher education for a long time, worked at several institutions, and I have not experienced anything like this phenomenon, FGCU President Wilson Bradshaw told an Associated Press sports writer last week. Were getting, Im getting, my staff members are getting e-mails and texts from all over the country, and its been very gratifying. Unique electronic visits to the universitys website in the month of March jumped from the mid-20,000s for a typical day, to a high of almost 231,000 on March 25, with an additional 117,000 or so unique visits to the athletic department site alone, university data shows.Money trainBY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.com FGCU Eagles true-blue fans bring plenty of green to schoolCOURTESY PHOTOSales of basketball apparel at the FGCU bookstore for March 2012 totaled $17,387.

239-434-0300 www.aemc.cc American Eagle has the Solution! www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 4-10, 2013 The yin-yang symbol represents the ancient Chinese perspective of life. The two shapes form a whole and represent lifes all. The black shape is yin and represents the dark, cold, contracting and, for some, the negative. The white shape is the yang and represents the bright, expanding, strong, and, for some, the positive. The Chinese belief is that yin and yang cannot exist without each other. And maybe that is a good way to look at Chinas economic story an economic tale with a yin-yang to it, with some dark and contracting and the other that is bright and expanding. Chinas bullish, expansionary economic story, the yang, focuses on its past and prospective rapid growth in its overall economy, best measured in growth of its gross domestic product. How fast is China growing? What sectors are leading its growth? What are its prospects for futures growth? Chinas GDP grew at 9.2 percent in 2011 and 7.8 percent in 2012 with inflation at 5.5 percent in 2011 and 3.1 percent in 2012. GDP non-inflationary growth (i.e., growth rate less rate of inflation) was 3.7 percent in 2011 and 4.7 percent in 2012. Thats pretty hefty growth when considering that the U.S. over the same period had real GDP growth of 2.2 percent and 1.8 percent in 2011 and 2012, respectively. Clearly, Chinas rip-roaring economy has been fighting attendant inflation, and clearly, our economy has been dragging along for the past four years and fighting deflationary forces. Chinas bull is found in its industrial complex, which accounted for nearly half of its GDP in 2012. By comparison, the U.S. industrial complex accounted for a meager 19 percent of GDP in 2012. The U.S. is not producing a lot of stuff while services are a startling 80 percent of GDP. For our Asian counterpart, services account for 44 percent of GDP. The bottom line is they make stuff, we buy stuff. Where does China spend its money? Where is its bang for its buck? How is it playing its game of monopoly? Their dollars are largely allocated to business investment, which is defined as the total business spending on fixed assets, such as factories, machinery, equipment, dwellings and inventories of raw materials, which provide the basis for future production. China spent 46 percent of its 2012 GDP on business investment. The U .S. spent a paltry 13 percent of GDP on business investment. Granted, while it is hard to trust the exact numbers produced by the Chinese government (and some of its businesses), the degree and skew of spending toward business investment cannot be argued. Chinas external debt is around $700 billion, while the U.S. has external debt of $15 trillion. Chinas annual deficit approximates only $200 billion to $300 billion. Chinas bearish story, or the yin, includes: its insufficiency of domestic natural resources (with energy, water, air and topsoil being on the critical list) to achieve future growth; its disregard for the environment; and the negative aspects of a rapidly aging population and continued urbanization. Chinas demand for resources is great not just because its GDP has been clipping along at a very fast rate or because it has 1.3 billion people. The demand for resources is great because its GDP is skewed to manufacturing and construction, which requires energy for the power needed in manufacturing and construction. Chinas industry guzzles energy and loads on its plate as much of other natural resources as it can. The U.S. argues that Chinas industrial sector uses more energy per dollar of GDP than any country. Beijing argues that Chinas energy consumption per capita is one tenth of the U.S. A few other major points of concern: China has less than 10 percent of the world's cultivated land and only 7 percent of its potable water, but must seek to feed almost 20 percent of the world's population (And) Chinas people are living longer and eating more. Population growth and economic prosperity are driving demand for water-intensive and protein-rich food such as meat and dairy. (CNN, Why booming China needs to learn the three Rs, March 4, 2013). China will continue to look at South America and the U.S. as providers of grains, beef and pork. As to the demographic story: Chinas population is aging rapidly. By 2015, there will be 220 million Chinese older than 60. Within 40 years, that number is expected to exceed 500 million, or about one-third of its population. Investors might not want to place a bet on China but betting against such an economic powerhouse (with so many financial metrics much stronger than those of the U.S.) might not be a good idea. As China is determined to soon take economic leadership from the U.S., they will likely find ways to solve their resource, pollution and demographic problems.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. The Bad Math of LotteriesBuying lottery tickets can deliver a little fun or a lot of financial ruin. Consider, for example, that according to a 2008 study, households earning less than $13,000 annually spend, on average, 9 percent of their income on lottery tickets. Another study found 21 percent of Americans view lotteries as a practical way to build wealth. Yikes! Playing the lottery is just not a smart move. Math professor Tyler Jarvis has explained why, offering the example of the California Lotto Jackpot, with odds of about 1 in 18 million: If you have to drive 10 miles to buy this ticket, you are three times more likely to be killed in an automobile accident on the way than to win the jackpot, yet many people would incorrectly think that winning this lottery would be more probable. Its true that by buying more than one ticket, you can up your chances of winning. But consider this: With odds of 1 in 18 million (and many lotteries offer far worse odds), if you bought 50 tickets per week, you ought to win once every 6,923 years. So you should have won by now if youd started playing around 5000 B.C. Meanwhile, if you bought 100 $2 Powerball lottery tickets every week from age 18 to 75, that would total $592,800. With the jackpot odds at worse than 1 in 175 million, your odds would still have just a 1-in-295 chance of winning. Look at all that money you spent, which could have supported you considerably in retirement! In fact, cash-strapped governments are often the winners, with North American lotteries raising more than $300 billion since 1964. Its ironic that many lotteries spend their revenue on education, as a popular saying reasonably points out that lotteries are a tax on people who arent good at math. Dont buy more than occasional tickets for fun. Keep in mind the wisdom of Fran Lebowitz, who reportedly quipped, Ive done the calculation, and your chances of winning the lottery are identical whether you play or not.. A Sudden DropOn July 2, 2000, I read good things about a software company called TenFold in my newspaper. On July 5, I bought shares at $17 apiece. On July 10, the stock dropped $7 per share, giving me a quick 41 percent loss. It was difficult to understand how a company could go from being profitable on July 2 to unprofitable on the 10th. B.T., via emailThe Fool Responds: A stock can surge or plunge based on a surprising quarterly earnings report. On July 10, TenFold preannounced disappointing results. The markets view of the company then changed, with more people wanting to sell than buy it, thereby driving the price down. The company had early success, and its stock went public at $17 per share in 1999, soared to $70 by March 2000, and then sank to around $1 per share as the Internet stock bubble burst. In 2002, the company was hit with an SEC investigation, with the case eventually dismissed. TenFold was eventually acquired by another company in 2008, with shareholders receiving $0.04 per share and convertible preferred stock on an as-converted basis. Searching for a Stock?Googles (NASDAQ: GOOG) stock, recently trading for more than $800 per share, is up more than 30 percent this year and has averaged annual growth of more than 20 percent over the past eight years. Is it too late to make money on Google? Probably not. On a long-term discounted cash flow basis, a case can be made that the stock is still very cheap. We first watched Google become the largest search engine in the world, but it has greatly expanded its scope since then. Its Android mobile operating system is the worlds most dominant one, and YouTube, which it bought in 2006, has ranked as high as the Internets second-most-visited site. Googles labs operate on the bleeding edge of technology, working on everything from wearable computers to selfdriving cars. Googles mission is to organize the worlds information and make it universally accessible and useful. Few companies have wrought such a profound change on the world in such a short time, while substantially growing its bottom line, expanding its business and treating its employees well, too. Google isnt perfect, but its doing a lot of things right. Remember that you dont have to buy 100 shares at a time of any stock. If youre interested in Google, you can buy just a few shares. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Google and its newsletters have recommended it.) I was envisioned and coded in 1995 as a marketplace accessible to everyone on Earth. My first sale was a broken laser pointer, and now my sellers offer everything from Pez dispensers to minivans. Born as AuctionWeb, I have a more familiar name now. I boast more than 112 million active users around the globe, and more than $67 billion worth of goods were sold through me in 2012 (excluding vehicles). My PayPal division sports some 122 million active accounts and processed $145 billion of transactions in 2012. Ive also bought Shopping.com, StubHub and Bill Me Later. Who am I? (Answer: eBay) Different ValuesQWhats the difference between intrinsic value and market value? C.B., Opelika, Ala.AGreat question, as its a vital concept for investors. Imagine Meteorite Insurance (ticker: HEDSUP). Its intrinsic value is what its really worth, based on factors such as its assets and debt, its anticipated growth rate and, ultimately, the amount of cash its expected to generate over its lifetime. Unfortunately, thats not easy to determine, and different smart analysts will arrive at different numbers. Plus, things change. Meteorites intrinsic value may be estimated around $10 billion, but if a competitor gains a lot of ground, perhaps via a new product, Meteorites future, and therefore its intrinsic value, is suddenly different. Meanwhile, market value is what investors are willing to pay for a company. Its typically measured by calculating a companys market capitalization: If Meteorite Insurance has 100 million shares outstanding and the current share price is $60, then its market cap is $6 billion (100 million times $60). If a firms estimated intrinsic value is higher than its market value, then its stock is likely undervalued and attractive. ***QWhats a derivative? A.M., Portland, MaineAIts a financial contract whose value is derived from another security, such as a stock, bond, commodity, currency, or a market index such as the S&P 500. Some common types of derivatives are options, futures and mortgagebacked securities. Theyre sometimes used to hedge risk, such as when companies limit their exposure to losses from currency exchange rate fluctuations or fuel price volatility. Some derivatives can be very risky, such as when theyre used to amplify gains (and losses). Warren Buffett has called derivatives time bombs and financial weapons of mass destruction.Got a question for the Fool?

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 4-10, 2013 BUSINESS B7 Officials recorded a total of approximately 1 million clicks that day. Thats worth money, but its difficult to quantify, just like a national media interview with Mr. Brown, a senior guard, from his dorm room, in which millions of viewers witnessed him looking out the window at the white-sand beach below. Did your dorm room have a beach? asked Andy Staples, addressing viewers in the video tour of FGCU for Sports Illustrated.com. I didnt think so. Its a sure bet that many in the U.S. now believe that FGCUs (lakefront) beach faces the ocean, which in fact lies over the horizon more than 10 crow-fly miles to the west.The frenzyNo matter. The money train was rolling into Dunk City, U.S.A., which is now probably anything within 50 or 100 miles of FGCUs precise coordinates, at 265.0 N., 8146 22.4 W. Every restaurant or bar with a television screen, every in-brick or on-line sports apparel outlet, and even area Realtors were making money, or looking forward to making money. At Gulf Coast Town Center a few miles from campus, the Dicks Sporting Goods store sold 1,300 FGCU T-shirts in two hours the morning after the Eagles beat San Diego State, said employee Matt Badger, an FGCU student who also works next door at the Key West Bar and Grill. There, he described lines out the door and around the corner for games. At $15 apiece, that was a tidy $19,400 in gross revenues from university T-shirts for a single morning. I dont think anybody saw this coming, said an ebullient Kim Freedman, community marketing manager for Dicks in South Florida. This is historic for fans in Dunk City, and were excited to be able to carry (Eagles materials). With 520 stores in the U.S., including 21 in Florida, the company (NYSE: DKS) is doing well, according to Zach Equity Research, which gave Dicks a favorable review last week. Doing well, in part, because it can react quickly to market demands generated by sudden local achievement. Meanwhile, Joe Cali, the manager at Impact Sports in Naples, found himself in the middle of a frenzy and prepared for it, too. Were selling a lot of shirts for $15 with the logo Dunk City, and hats and visors, Mr. Cali said. Theres been a need for this kind of spirit in the area weve never had it. This team has given everybody a reason to step out and get on the bandwagon and support FGCU. This is our university, in our backyard. They created this. They brought it home. Go Eagles! The eager attitude, and the money that comes with it, appeared everywhere. Were having a watch party and were actually putting up a 12-foot projector screen in the parking lot its bring your own chairs, said Tatiana Franklin, a bartender and server at Beef OBradys in Bonita Springs. That story was repeated in countless businesses up and down the coast on Friday, March 29, the day the Eagles met and lost to the UF Gators in Texas. Perhaps no FGCU fan supporting the Eagles spirit with their wallets and perhaps anticipating a potential payoff in return was more enthusiastic than Chris Griffith of the Griffith Group at Downing-Frye Realty in Bonita Springs. His daughter Jennafer graduated from FGCU in 2011 and was an Eagles cheerleader. We spent our fair share of time at FGCU events getting blisters on our butts, Mr. Griffith said. So for the Georgetown game, she got a table in front of the TV at Millers Ale House with all of her friends. In the last few seconds of the game, if they could have bottled the spirit it was like the fountain of youth. Nobody had an agenda, it was just joy. And joy is worth money. Win or lose, theyve gotten so much press, the social media has gone viral, and now were branded with Dunk City. That will mean more applications, it will mean exponential growth. Something like this is such a catalyst. For real estate, too. This is sort of a double boom for parents if they decide to purchase homes for students who will enroll at FGCU, Mr. Griffith said. We see parents using these as investments, enjoying the appreciation, and maybe later using them as retirement homes to a state with no income tax.On-campus, in-conference money A more quantifiable look at what the Eagles unprecedented success means economically can begin with other teams in the Atlantic Sun Conference itself, who will benefit from the Eagles achievement for years to come. For each playoff game, a team gets one credit from the NCAA, now worth about $250,000 but increasing in value year by year with income stemming from hugely lucrative television contracts. Each year, the NCAA calculates the total credits obtained by a conference in playoff games for a six-year period, then divides the money between the teams, according to St. Louis University economist Patrick Rishe in a Forbes Magazine story. For the last six years, the Atlantic Sun Conference has six credits. That means the conference winner competed in only one March Madness playoff game, and lost, six years in a row. (The Atlantic Sun is one of 32 Division I conferences, and considered one of the weakest.) The conference can thus expect to receive between $1.3 and $1.5 million, which means $130,000 to $150,000 per school if conference officials decide to distribute the NCAA money equally between the 10 teams (sometimes conferences weigh in favor of the teams that actually won the credits in playoff games). In any case, from the additional playoff games alone this year, FGCUs young players have earned another $500,000 to $600,000 per year through 2019 for their conference. And thats just a start. All told, Mr. Rishe concluded, FGCU has already succeeded at capturing the imagination of sports fans while generating millions in future NCAA allocations for the Atlantic Sun Conference and millions in brand enhancement for their university. Brand enhancement. The only person besides the players who may not make any money by putting FGCU on a big map is the biggest brand enhancer of all, the nameless soul who coined the term, Dunk City, which is now nationally prominent and instantly recognizable. It might have happened in the middle of the Georgetown game March 22, after a couple of spectacular lobs and dunks by the Eagles. Suddenly, a tweet appeared from College Basketball Talk, an online NBC Sports service. It read, Apparently FGCU is located in Dunk City, Florida. Nineteen minutes later, at 8:25 p.m., according to the Naples Daily News, a tweet appeared from the official FGCU account that said, When people ask where FGCU is, just tell them, Dunk City, Florida! The money train was whistling in, and it whistled loud and long on the campus itself. Eagles coach Andy Enfield, for example paid $157,000 per year plus another $15,000 for getting his team into the playoffs watched his economic clout climb like a lottery winners. About 72 hours after his Eagles ended their run, he cashed in, quitting FGCU and leaving the young players with a single overriding lesson about their sport at the Division I college level: Its all about money. Its professional. Coach Enfield, 43, will earn as much as $2 million per year to head the mens basketball program at the University of Southern California, according to reports in the Los Angeles Daily News. In the FGCU bookstore as of Thursday, March 28 the day before the team met UF in a failed bid to move from the Sweet 16 to the Elite Eight sales of womens clothing and hats were up 787 percent over the previous March sales, according to Susan Evans, a university vice president. For mens fixings, she added, sales were up 1,737 percent. Ms. Evans did not return a phone call or an e-mail to Florida Weekly to discuss a broad range of on-campus implications, but she didnt have to. Instead, she delivered the following information describing bookstore sales in a single blast to almost 40 of her favorite print and electronic media outlets, from Florida Weekly to Forbes magazine. The numbers, comparing sales in March a year ago to sales in March 2013, tell the whole story. Womens apparel and hats: March 2012, $6,708. March 2013, $59,485. Mens apparel and hats: March 2012, $17,387. March 2013: $318,539. And one more thing, she added in the press release: GO EAGLES!

Using words, music, humor, solid journalism, whimsy and unfettered imagination, he and his team of producers and writers weave stories you can see in your minds eye. The result: This American Life, a weekly one-hour show on public radio that consistently informs, entertains and surprises. Though radio is an aural medium, On a good day, its a visual medium, Mr. Glass says. When a story is working really well, you know what stuff looks like and theres a picture in your head. We try to be mindful of the pictures. He says theyll be working on a story and inevitably, one of the editors will ask, What am I looking at right now? It isnt that different than any other kind of nonfiction writing, he adds. I think any reporter tries to keep an eye on that, on what the audience is seeing in their head. Heard locally on WGCU-FM 90.1/91.7 at 1 p.m. Saturdays and rebroadcast at noon Sundays, This American Life is constantly re-creating itself and stretching the boundaries of Ira Glass comes to the Barbara B.

The Sarasota Film Festival celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, or, as they like to put it, 1.5 decades. The festival opens on April 5 with Blackfish, a documentary film by Gabriela Cowperthwaite that looks at the lives of orca whales and what happens to them when they are forced to live in captivity. The closing night film on April 13 is Frances Ha, directed by Noah Baumbach, known for films such as The Squid and the Whale, The Fantastic Mr. Fox and Life Aquatic. Some of the festivals highlights include Pasadena, a family comedy starring Peter Bogdanovich; The Discoverers, starring Griffin Dunne and The Cold Lands starring Lili Taylor.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com Book loversId rather talk books than talk dirty. In fact, there are few men I admire more than the ones who can discuss plot and character with a certain intellectual heft. Id give anything for a conversation on narrative arcs, metaphors and motifs. These men dont have to be writers themselves, but they invariably are. Not to say Id like a romantic relationship with them. Writers are a hard lot to love. Were neurotic, selfish and competitive on our good days. Writers are also often deeply insecure, and we vacillate between needing reassurance and needing to be left alone. Its a difficult path for a partner to walk, one I cant imagine walking myself. So I had to laugh at a recent writing conference in Boston when the air was steeped in literary lust. It was as if all that book talk, all those poetry readings, had generated a sort of freeborn aphrodisiac that pumped through the ventilation of the convention center. More than 10,000 writers had gathered for the literary-palooza, and every one of them seemed to have breathed in the heady mix of good grammar and publishing opportunities. I saw it everywhere: young men and women exchanging flirty quips; older men and women making soft eyes. On the way to lunch with a poet friend, a long-haired beauty who is in every way the definition of vixen, I remarked on the coupling that seemed to be going on around us. I cant tell if people are here for the books or the affairs, I told her, rolling my eyes. My friend didnt miss a step. Both, of course, she answered. Then she proceeded to tell me about her own affair at last years conference. Try as I might, I could not find one man there who lit my fire partly because of my prohibition on writers, but also because of a trend among young male novelists toward ungroomed facial hair; there wasnt one man there my age without a lumberjack beard. But at the end of one of the long days, in the auditorium where we had gathered to hear a Nobel prize winner read, a man took a seat next to me and began making conversation. He was not exactly my type, not exactly my age, but Im never one to discount the possibilities for love. Not immediately, anyway. He asked me several general questions Where are you from? Where do you live now? and then the standard you hear everywhere at these things: So, what do you write? I told him, Nonfiction. Journalism. Essays, and I hesitated. The last one never goes over well. Memoir, I said. The man, who had introduced himself as a poet, cocked his head and looked into the middle distance in a way Im sure he thought made him look wise. He launched into a sermon on the impossibility of someone my age writing memoir, of the foolishness of the genre, of the utter ridiculousness of personal writing. He spent nearly 10 minutes insulting me, and when he had finished, he turned in my direction and said in only the way pretentious writerly types would So, can I buy you a drink?

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 4-10, 2013 storytelling. The show starts with an introduction of a theme and then presents various acts that revolve around it. Sometimes its one story, told in two or three acts; other times its a crazy quilt of numerous stories that reflect the topic. One time, it was 0 Acts in 60 Minutes. Acts can be interviews or first-person narratives, usually with healthy doses of humor. (The show is famous for contributors such as David Sedaris, Sarah Vowell and the late David Rakoff.) Its covered topics as diverse as the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, pimping, 9/11, coincidences, reruns, starting from scratch, kid logic and how The Onion comes up with headlines. Were doing on radio a kind of narrative journalism that people do elsewhere, but we are the prime radio example of that, Mr. Glass says. Were (so) visible, that when people do this kind of reporting on NPRs daily news shows, people will come up to me and congratulate me, thinking they heard it on our show, he says. Simply because its one of those long emotional stories with character and scenes, they think of us. Mr. Glass appears at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers at 7 p.m. Sunday, April 14. Tickets are $45 and $35. I stand on stage with an iPad, which has quotes and music and sound, and I recreate the radio show, he explains. I tell stories from the radio show. I hit the sound cues and recreate the sound of the show around me, as I speak. The evening, he says, will be a mix of me talking about how we make the show, and why we make a show thats so different than most shows on the radio, and funny stories and memorable moments from the show. Many listeners know radio personalities only by the sound of their voice. And Mr. Glass has a distinctive one a conversational tone with a hipster-nerd, semi-Brando-like mumble, with odd jazz phrasings that combine unexpected pauses with gushes of words, like a singer playing with meter. But many know the man with the Salinger-esque name and Buddy Holly glasses by sight; hes been a guest on numerous TV shows, including The Late Show with David Letterman and The Steven Colbert Report, and was in 13 episodes of This American Life that aired on Showtime in 2007 and 2008. Hes done live tours of his radio show (the most recent, The Invisible Made Visible, was also broadcast in movie theaters in May 2012). Hes become somewhat of a cult figure. Hes had a cameo on The Simpsons TV show (Today in Five Acts: Condiments), and the comic book Nation X #1 had a panel showing Wolverine and Nightcrawler listening to This American Life while riding in a pickup truck. The show has also been mentioned in the television series The O.C. and in the parody newspaper The Onion. When it began in 1995, it was originally called Your Radio Playhouse. Today its broadcast on more than 500 stations and boasts a listenership of almost 2 million. More than 800,00 people listen to podcasts of the show, Mr. Glass says. Chicago Public Media produces the show (Public Radio International distributes it) and has earned two Peabody Awards for it. Mr. Glass has received the Edward R. Murrow Award and the George Polk Award, among others. Last year the show ran excerpts from Mike Daiseys one-man show in which the actor talked about appalling conditions at a factory in China making Apple products. When the producers learned many of the things Mr. Daisey had said were fabrications, their reaction was a textbook example of what to do in the face of lies presented as truth. They devoted an entire show (Retractions) to what had happened, parsing the lies from the truth, interviewing everyone from Mr. Daiseys interpreter in China to Mr. Daisey himself.Not as easy as it soundsThe stories told on This American Life are a combination of anecdote and reflection. You need an interesting character you can relate to, and they have to get into a situation where things happen to them, and then something else happens, and something else, Mr. Glass says. There are surprises, and you cant anticipate what will happen next. Then, he says, the narrator has to step back from the action and say, Heres the point of this. This is why Im telling you the story. Radio is peculiarly needful of that. Radio is also an intensely intimate medium that at its best makes listeners feel as though they are being spoken to directly. I think a lot of people hear the radio show and think, I could do that because its so casually performed, he says. We dont seem like official newsreaders; we sound like someone who accidentally came into the studio. Its me and other people talking: Heres whats going to happen. The tone, he adds, is purely conversational. Mr. Glass remembers going on a date with a woman when he was a bachelor. She asked him what he did, and he explained the show to her. Then she asked, What do you do with the other four days? Do you have another job? The amount of time it takes to do some of these things would surprise people, he says, adding the simplest piece can take six or seven hours. Hell interview someone for a half hour or hour and then listen to it, taking notes, before creating as many as four versions of the story until hes satisfied with the segment. Thats a full days work, he says. Thats about as fast as it gets.Always in pursuit of plotFor one recent show they sent three reporters into a Chicago high school for five months. This is a school that had 29 shootings last year, Mr. Glass says. That generated a ton of tape. The way This American Life told the Harper High School story is what sets it apart from other programs. People cover guns and kids, Mr. Glass says. We find characters in the middle of it all. We get to know them, and we watch the drama unfold. For the Harper High School story, he adds, the result was a program with plot, versus the more traditional reporting about the statistics, issues, dangers and casualties of handguns on the street. In the quest to find three or four stories that are good enough to air, theyll often consider 15 or 20 and go into production for seven or eight of them. What makes a great interviewer is a good interviewee with great stories, Mr. Glass says. And great stories happen to those who can tell them. The audience never knows what to expect from This American Life. The show is not only constantly reinventing itself, but reinventing radio. Ideas, he says, come from other ideas. You have to immerse yourself in stuff. Thats where youll find something, he says. When you start doing any kind of creative job, one of the things you think is that ideas will be sprinkled on you like fairy dust. Its a job to find an idea. The good thing is, you can approach it like a job. Just go out and look for an idea. The most important thing is to look for the things you find interesting. When youre learning journalism, nobody tells you that the more youre out to amuse yourself, the better things will be in your stories.

Its a look once reserved for just-the-factsmaam FBI agents and s rocker Buddy Holly. Ive had these glasses for over 20 years, Mr. Glass says. Maybe 25. Now that theyre trendy, he still doesnt plan on changing them. I dont know what I would change my glasses to, he says. Im not very fashion forward. I dont care about my appearance. He admits his wardrobe is unimaginative and predictable: a pair of jeans and either a white or blue shirt. (But) Ill wear a tie to do a speaking gig, he says. If people pay, you should wear a tie. Thats what I was taught. the TV showA television version of This American Life ran for two seasons on Showtime, for a total of 13 episodes, in 2007 and 2008. (One last episode ran in 2009.) It won three Emmy Awards. Mr. Glass and the radio show moved from Chicago to New York City in 2006 in order to do the cable show. The half-hour show is officially on hiatus now, but Mr. Glass has said hed like to do television specials when the subject warrants it. When asked if This American Life was returning to television, he says: Were probably not (returning) any time soon. Torey MalatiaAs the co-creator of This American Life, Torey Malatia is mentioned at the end of every program. But, just like Bart Simpson writing a different sentence on the blackboard in the opening credits of The Simpsons, how hes described changes every week. In various episodes, Mr. Malatia has been referred to as: Our boss, Mr. Torey Malatia, who follows me around the office trying to get me to say the letter L, which he knows I cannot say. He especially loves it when I say the name Lillian Hellman, WBEZ management oversight by Mr. Torey Malatia. Hes been working on his John Wayne imitation, waiting for his big break, really, and Our boss, Mr. Torey Malatia. I overheard him in the hallway telling someone how surprised he was at the quality of our shows this year. Nancy Stetson About ...

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 4-10, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A little woolgathering is OK. But dont let that dreamy state linger beyond midweek, when youll want to be ready to take on new workplace responsibilities. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Love rules the week for single Bovines seeking romance. Attached pairs also find new joy in their relationships. Friday should bring news about a business opportunity. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Home becomes the center of a new social whirl, as you show your talent for hosting great parties. You can expect to impress a lot of people whove never seen this side of you. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The Moon Child might have to raise those powers of persuasion a notch to get a still-wary colleague to agree to go along. Finding more facts to back up your position helps. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Hold off trying to fix the blame for an apparent mishandling of a work situation. A full investigation could reveal surprising facts on how and why it really happened. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your ability to find details others might overlook gives you an advantage in assessing a possibly too-goodto-be-true offer. A trusted colleague has advice. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Expect to be called on once again to act as peacemaker in a longsimmering dispute that suddenly flares up. Offer advice, but be careful to stay out of the fray. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your organizational skills help you line up your priorities so that you get things done without added pressure. The weekend could hold a special surprise. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) New ventures are favored. But dont launch yours before rechecking all facts and sources. Also, be sure you can rely on support from certain people. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Dont be pushed into renegotiating an agreement, even though it might help avoid a potential impasse. Get legal advice before you sign or agree to anything. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Helping others is what Aquarians do so well. But this time, someone wants to help you. Expect to hear some news that will both surprise and delight you. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Things go so swimmingly that youre tempted to take on more tasks. Best advice: Finish what you have now, then enjoy a well-earned relaxing weekend. BORN THIS WEEK: Your understanding of human nature helps you make wise decisions that are appreciated by all. You would make a fine judge. 013 King Features Synd., Inc.

NoHeres the key to mindless action movies: They need to have just enough story to keep things moving. Too little story, or too many plot holes, and the movie fails regardless of how good the action is. Too much story, as is the case with G.I. Joe Retaliation, is just rude. As viewers, we neither need nor want the amount of characters, subplots and narrative layers offered here. When trailers promote the opportunity to shut your brain off and enjoy action eye candy for 110 minutes, and you cant because of a convoluted storyline, thats annoying. To be fair, the ambition of director Jon M. Chu and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick is admirable. But their failure to bring balance and cohesion to the narrative elements is a disappointment, considering so much less was needed for the film to fulfill its promise. The basic premise is simple: With the villain Zartan (Arnold Vosloo) impersonating the U.S. president (Jonathan Pryce), the G.I. Joes (think Navy Seals, if youre not familiar) are almost entirely wiped out. Only Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson), Jaye (Adrianne Palicki) and Flint (D.J. Cotrona) remain, and together they need to find out whos after them and why, and then go on a ridiculous killing spree. (Side note: Channing Tatum only appears for about the first half hour.) Sounds like good old-fashioned revenge/comic book/childrens cartoon/Hasbro toys fun, right? Wrong. Things get complicated, and knowing whos good/bad in advance will help if you dont absorb the brief tutorial in the beginning. Theres minutiae about nuclear warheads and a secret military weapon, and the original G.I. Joe is brought into the picture, which allows Bruce Willis to play the exact same character he did in RED. Really grinding things to a halt, however, is this: With the help of fellow bad guy Firefly (Ray Stevenson), Storm Shadow (Byung hun-Lee) breaks uber-villain Cobra Commander (Luke Bracey) out of prison. This prompts an M.I.A. Joe named Snake Eyes (Ray Park) and his trainee Jinx (Elodie Yung) to track them down. So much time is spent on this that it takes away the momentum of the main storyline; flashbacks to Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes training and discussions about Jinxs worthiness add tedium to a narrative that is at its best when moving forward quickly. The one good thing this tangential thread brings is an awesome action sequence set high in snowfilled mountains. Rope, wires and zip lines track Snake Eyes and Jinx as they fly through the mountains while keeping a valuable possession out of the hands of the bad guys. The camera work, staging and execution make this a true showstopper thats beautifully done. If you are going to see this, the 3D upcharge is worth it for this scene alone. Its anyones guess why G.I. Joe Retaliation gets so bogged down with storylines that its hard to enjoy the mindless action.

It is mentioned in some Babylonian writings. It was used for sweetening food, for medicine, for religious ceremonies and even as a form of money. In the 18th and 19th centuries, a special serving dish and usually a special serving fork or spoon were devoted to each type of food, so its not surprising to find special antique honey pots. The wealthy used silver serving pieces, and honey pots might be shaped like bee skeps or have a sculpted or engraved bee as decoration. Skeps were made of woven straw and were portable. If a skep was not destroyed to get honey out, another swarm of bees could inhabit a skep the next season. Old skeps sell today for about $50 to $100 as decorations. It is illegal to raise bees with a skep today. Beekeepers must be able to open hives today so mite medicine can be applied. Old and new honey pots can be found made of glass and pottery. If you plan to use a sterlingor silver-plated pot, it must have a glass liner. Honey encourages silver tarnish, and tarnish destroys some of honeys nutrients. Q: I have an original program from the Candlestick Park Dedication Dinner held at the Garden Court of the Sheraton-Palace Hotel in San Francisco on April 11, 1960. Its autographed by a few baseball players and by some of the people who spoke at the dedication, including Vice President Richard Nixon, Major League Baseball Commissioner Ford Frick, Giants owner Horace Stoneham and Giants manager Bill Rigney. What is it worth? A: The San Francisco Giants played at Seals Stadium for two seasons before Candlestick Park opened in 1960. The team played there for 40 years, until its new ballpark on San Francisco Bay (now called AT&T Park) opened in 2000. Your program would interest collectors of baseball memorabilia, but the Nixon signature means it also might appeal to people who want political collectibles. If you want to sell, contact an auction that specializes in sports collectibles. The program could sell for $100, but it might also bring $500 or more, depending on the programs condition and the fame of everyone who autographed it. Q: I still have my Alice Marble wooden tennis racket my parents gave me when I was about 10 years old. It was made by Wilson and reads Court Queen on the handle.

She broke world records when she won the singles, doubles and mixed doubles titles at both Wimbledon and the U.S. Open that year. During World War II, she was a spy for the United States and was wounded when trying to get some Nazi financial information. Wilson made more than one model of Alice Marble tennis rackets. The Court Queen model was introduced in about 1938. Old wooden rackets arent particularly valuable today. Rackets like yours sell for under $40. They are hung on the wall as decoration, not used to play tennis. Q: I inherited 13 Bessie Pease Gutmann prints when my cousin died. They are all framed and look very old. Some are named and several are not. I would like to know how to find out what theyre worth. A: Bessie Pease Gutmann (18761960) was an American artist who did illustrations for advertisements, books, magazines, postcards and calendars. She is best known for her prints of babies and young children. She stopped working in 1947. Her prints have been mass-produced. Original prints were done on matte paper and include the print number and the name and city of the publisher, Gutmann and Gutmann, New York, N.Y. Titles on early prints were written in block letters. Later, prints had titles in script. Original prints can be worth a few hundred dollars, while copies sell for as little as $10 to $15 each. Tip: Help your family by always identifying whos pictured in your family photographs. Include their names and ages, the year the photo was taken and where it was taken. Write on the back near the edge using the kind of permanent marker sold at photo supply stores. Do not use a ballpoint pen. It will leave a dent in the paper.

Multiplicity exhibit on loan from Smithsonian at Naples museumMultiplicity, the newest exhibit at the Patty & Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art, consists of 83 prints from the permanent collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum by contemporary artists including John Baldessari, Vija Celmins, Chuck Close, Jim Dine, Sol Lewitt, Martin Puryear, Susan Rothenberg, Kiki Smith and Kara Walker. The exhibit opens Saturday, April 6. The idea of creating multiple images from a single matrix such as a metal plate, stone or woodblock is centuries old. Then, as now, prints were created by artists working alongside master printers who aided the artist in bringing his or her vision to fruition. These collaborations upend the stereotype of the singular masterpiece and of the artist toiling solo in the studio, stereotypes the artists in Multiplicity explode even further by creating sequences of images that can be variations on a theme, progressions, pairings or experiments in contrast rather than simple repetitions. Joann Moser, Ph.D., a senior curator and curator of graphic arts at the Smithsonian American Art Museum since 1986, will deliver a lecture about the exhibit at 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 23, in the Daniels Pavilion at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts adjacent to the museum Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday (free guided tours at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.) and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday (free guided tours at 1 p.m.).

3D Initiative Launches First Regional Call to Action FUTURE AND OURSIt takes a village or, in this case, a region to change the lives of students for the better. Thats the philosophy behind the Southwest Florida Community Foundations first Regional Call to Action, one that aims to bring together a broad coalition of people to help students prepare for meaningful careers, and, hence, better lives. The project called FutureMakers, is the culmination of the foundations inaugural 3-D Project Data, Dialogue and Decisions that began last fall. After mining data to identify regional need and bringing together stakeholders from across the region for dialogue and roundtable discussions, the 3D team determined that the widening educational gap the difference between the number of students going on to college or other post-secondary programs, and the number of educated workers needed is a critically important issue that could be addressed and impacted through a regional strategy. The Regional Call to Action marks a change in the foundations philanthropic strategy. While it still offers grants to individual organizations for specific needs, its implementation of the call to action signals a start to a new funding model in which the foundation partners in collaboration with groups throughout the funding process. HELPING STUDENTS BUILD THEIRSEE FUTURE, 4 A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | SPRING 2013 our GIVING MATTERS SEE 3D, 4 IMAGINE A REGION WHERE ALL GRADUATing high school seniors are ignited by dreams of their future dreams of making a difference in their communities, nation and world. Imagine a community that swells with pride over the accomplishments of its future leaders. Imagine a region where graduating seniors feel the support of their communities as they take their next steps into educational opportunities. We can make this a reality. We can create the future. We can launch tomorrows leaders into the education that readies them for success. It starts when together we become futuremakers. 3D Strategic Team Nearly a year ago the Southwest Florida Community Foundation shared a vision with the community around the idea of our five-county region working together to impact an issue that is facing our Southwest Florida neighbors. We believed that this collective force could create a Regional Call to Action (RCA) that would ignite action, results, and engage local donors as well as create opportunities for funding from outside our area. From this vision, the 3D Initiative: Data, Dialogue and Decisions, was born; along with the commitment to move quickly to develop the first RCA. We were anxious to stop talking about problems and get to work solving problems with regional partners. As the Foundation had the opportunity to meet with Southwest Floridians about the issues they would like to see the RCA tackle we learned that our neighbors wanted not only immediate action but measureable results. Additionally, potential funders from outside our area wanted opportunities to impact issues, not individual organizations and the assurance that the nonprofits in our area had the capacity to deliver a return on their investment. In todays philanthropic climate we are all anxious to move the needle in solving our most pressing problems. We want to know that our time and resources are really making a difference, and through the 3D Initiative the Foundation has developed a platform to launch and SarahPresident & CEO, Southwest Florida Community Foundation Here We Go Together in 3D

For a list of our trustees, go to our website at www.floridacommunity.com our fund result driven projects. Most of our early data collection and dialogue roundtables pointed to a desire to see change in education, youth development and economic development. We realize many great minds are working on these issues both nationally and locally and the Foundations role is to support these efforts and fund innovative solutions. We also realize that we need to find the gap that our funding and collaboration can most effectively impact. With that in mind, we have selected Future Makers: A Regional College/ Career Access Network as our first RCA. We will be working with a wide range of stakeholders in our Southwest Florida area to facilitate positive, measurable regional change that will provide access to the tools our students and their families need to move ahead into the world of college and careers. The work will be done by those in the community who have the expertise and passion to make a difference. In this issue of Our Community we highlight the process we used to identify this first RCA, present some of the statistics that speak to the need and introduce you to some of the partners that have shaped our vision for the future. We would love to hear your feedback. Please stay in touch with me at iamlistening@ floridacommunity.com. Here we go! It reflects a shift that enables the foundation and similar organizations to play an active role in bringing about social change, by funding causes and helping to pull together the right nonprofits to affect change on a large scale. The foundation engages in the projects at the design phase and partners with the organizations throughout the entire process with an eye on making social change and inspiring local innovation, says Dave Fleming, the Southwest Florida Community Foundations chief strategic officer, the leader of the RCA. By bringing together diverse organizations throughout the region, the foundation hopes to appeal to larger philanthropic organizations with more resources, which can award larger grants that can, in turn, bring about larger changes.Change From the Bottom UpThe national groups want to see an organic movement of collective action, a broad spectrum of groups uniting behind the cause to change things, says Braulio Colon, executive director of Florida College Access Network. Philanthropic organizations want to see that its a priority with local buy-in from the bottom up. The region is on its way toward that goal, says Fleming. Weve identified the likely stakeholders, the subject matter experts and agency leaders who really focus on this issue and likely many will play strategic roles in the execution of the regional call to action. The next step is to bring that group together and start talking about design and execution. The foundation has started the process to fund partners for the program which will launch at the beginning of the next school year. Vital to this process will be the students who will be seniors and their parents who will help leaders understand their needs and the obstacles they face. The foundation will facilitate further round table discussions to keep these conversations going, and to enhance its understanding of the students and families the ultimate stakeholders in this initiative. The world has shifted in a way, Fleming says. College today is not necessarily the next step. What FutureMakers is trying to do is help students find their next educational opportunities. For many, that may be college, but for others, it may be training or specialized certification programs. FutureMakers emphasizes the next step. Its not just about one type of educational opportunity, but many. Southwest Florida isnt alone in its need or desire to increase the number of students who go on to post-secondary school. The Lumina Foundation for Education, an influential national private education foundation, has set a big goal for the country to substantially increase the number of Americans with college degrees from the current 39 percent to 60 percent by 2025. Whats happening is that too many students arent planning for life after high school. A leading indicator of the problem in Southwest Floridas five counties Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry and Lee is that less than onethird of high school seniors complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the form that helps determine what financial support might be available to them for college or other postsecondary programs. It is the first step toward securing Pell grants, federal loans, workstudy jobs and a host of scholarships. Understanding what type of financial aid is available and how much you qualify for can make the difference between going on to college or not going, says Sarah Owen, president and CEO of the foundation.Going or Not Going to CollegeData recently released by the U.S. Department of Education show that less than 24 percent of students in Lee and Charlotte counties and 32 percent of those in Collier complete the all-important FAFSA. The numbers are lower still in Hendry, at 20.5 percent, and in Glades, where only 19.6 percent complete it. The result: More than three quarters of graduating seniors arent even getting to the launch pad to advance their education or careers, Owen says. According to figures supplied by the federal government, college graduates earn twice what workers without degrees do, meaning that education is the clearest pathway to the middle class. It has huge implications, not just for the state and our ability to educate our residents, but for our ability to be competitive in the country in the 21st century, says Colon, of Florida College Access Network. Right now, about 38 percent of Florida residents possess at least a 2-year degree. Projections indicate about 43 percent of Floridians will hold post-secondary degrees by 2025, substantially less than the 60 percent of jobs that will require workers equipped with degrees, he says. To accomplish that, Colon says, it is going to take all sectors in our communities to come together. First Generation Students and ParentsTheres a large population of firstgeneration college students who require a multitude of resources. School systems have done a good job of improving outcomes, with the number of college degrees growing an average of 4.4 percent a year for the past decade, but theres still a lot of work to be done, Colon says, especially in high school. Schools alone cant be expected to do it all, he says. A six-hour school day simply isnt sufficient to equip students with all of the skills they need. Teachers and guidance counselors have so much on their plates, says Marshall Bower, president and CEO of the Foundation for Lee County Public Schools. In addition, societal issues make life difficult for todays students. Many families are not intact like they used to be, he says. There are kids raising kids, kids coming from homes where no one is watching whats in their best interest, and parents working multiple jobs just to make sure the kids are fed and clothed. For some families, English isnt the primary language and many parents never attended college so dont know how to counsel their own children. All of those things have come together in the perfect storm. The way to help change the outcome starts with providing mentors, Bower says, to encourage and coach youngsters to reach their full potential. Its worked well with the school foundations Take Stock in Children program, which mentors at-risk teens and boasts a 96 percent success rate in getting participants to graduate and begin college. These students are guaranteed scholarships that play pivotal roles in helping them realize their dreams of an education. A similar effort is under way through the Education Foundation of Collier County Champions for Learning, which has identified schools that have the fewest students filling out the federal forms. Called a Real World Learning Model, the program is now operating at Golden Gate High School, where fewer than 29 percent of students filled out the FAFSA from. Mentoring students through the Real World Learning Volunteer Network has helped increase graduation rates from 61 percent to 73 percent in a short time. Champions for Learnings Take Stock in Children program also provides mentoring and scholarships to 17 Golden Gate High School students.No Text Book on This SubjectSusan McManus, president of the organization, says that long-term mentoring is critical to student success. We realized theres a role for students to help other students, parents helping students and each other, a real-world coach to support a student in career exploration, finding their passion, helping with financial aid, she says. They plan to target one school that has the greatest need and build a model that shifts the culture so that more students graduate and continue on to postsecondary school. Gregg Gillman, executive director of the Hendry County Economic Development Council, says the primary problem for graduating seniors in Hendry and Glades counties is that many who dont go on to college arent prepared to enter the work force either. The development council formed a task force that brings business people and educators together to delineate the problems and figure out solutions. As in the other counties, Gillman expects volunteer mentors to play key roles in helping students fill out FAFSA forms and figuring out what they want to do once they graduate. Through the Regional Call to Action, FutureMakers, the Southwest Florida Community Foundation will work with organizations in each of the five-county areas to develop programs that will inspire students to think about their futures in terms of training or further education. FutureMakers will facilitate funding for partners to help them move the needle on the next steps in securing educational opportunities for students and to lay the groundwork for future careers that will enhance their lives and fuel the regional economic engine. The initiative takes a multi-pronged approach to the problem, partnering with organizations in each county each of which will develop a strategy that best suits them. Joe Paterno, executive director of the Southwest Florida Workforce Development Board, hails the initiative as a positive step toward solving a persistent problem. Those that dont succeed (in college or the work force) end up in our programs to be retrained, he says. We cant serve everybody. If we can get them through high school, vocational training or the college system, they have a better chance of succeeding and they arent likely to come into our system. That will allow us to focus on those who have fallen through the cracks. Deborah Gauvreau, director of nonprofit resources for the Charlotte Community Foundation, likes the diversified concept. We dont have a cookie-c utter solution, she says. Each area is being invited to explore resources that exist and find solutions that can be most impactful in a given geographic area. The concept of regional goals expressed uniquely in each of the five counties is critical to the success of FutureMakers. Beyond FutureMakers, solutions that emerge from diverse communities is important both to our region and the mission of the foundation. 3D FROM PAGE 1 FUTURE FROM PAGE 1It reflects a shift that enables the foundation and similar organizations to play an active role in bringing about social change, by funding causes and helping to pull together the right nonprofits to affect change on a large scale.

B E ACH R E ADINGThe Chronicles of Downton Abbey: A New Era By Jessica Fellowes and Matthew Strugis (St. Martin's Press, $29.99)REVIEWED BY LARRY COXUpstairs, Downstairs was a British television series set in a London townhouse in Belgravia during the early years of the past century. The 68 episodes depicted the lives of the servants, who lived downstairs in the house, and the wealthy Bellamy family, who occupied the upper floors. The series covered the period from about 1903 until the beginning of the Great Depression of the 1930s, and it was must-viewing both in the UK and America during the early 1970s. Forty years later, a British TV series reminiscent of Upstairs, Downstairs has become one of the hottest programs on PBS. Downton Abbey also follows the day-to-day lives of servants and an aristocratic family in elaborate detail. There are differences, of course. Instead of being set in London, the story unfolds in the Yorkshire estate of Downton Abbey and follows a slightly later time, starting in 1912 in the post-Edwardian era. A new book documents the first three seasons of the series with hundreds of photographs, closer looks at many of the colorful characters and behind-the-scenes glimpses of the drama and other aspects that make the program so popular. It is the authenticity to detail that makes this series so intriguing. There simply is not a single misstep as far as costuming and set designs are concerned. Even the music occasionally played on the familys old gramophone is genuine. This gorgeous book is filled with images in full color and other pieces of memorabilia that place both the estate and its period of history in context. Short chapters focus on each of the characters, examining their motivations, actions and inspirations to provide new depth for viewers. An evocative combination of history, story and characters, this guide brings fans even closer to Downton Abbey and the people who inhabit the grand estate.

Artist presents free lecture at FGCUFlorida Gulf Coast University presents a free lecture by artist Richard Mueller at 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 9, in the printmaking studio at the FGCU arts complex. All are welcome. Mr. Muellers current work responds to the phenomenon of surplus information in western societies and changing notions of truth, beauty and knowledge. It employs as its premise the discarding, shredding and appropriation of work and image as a metaphoric device to generate new and relevant forms. Working in a wide range of media from canvas and paint to newspaper and glass, he moves fluidly between twoand threedimensional formats, and between abstraction and representation. Mr. Mueller, whose work appears in exhibitions at public and private galleries throughout Canada, Germany and the United States, has a 20-year history of teaching cultural studies, pedagogy and studio courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax. Additionally, he has developed and taught drawing and theory-related courses for the Dalhousie University School of Architecture, also in Halifax. He retired from NSCAD in 2009 and continues to teach individual courses at both universities. He maintains studios in Florida and Nova Scotia, and is currently teaching an advanced drawing studio workshop at FGCU.

VINOChardonnay remains popular by changing with the timesChardonnay is a gateway wine. Its likely the first grownup wine most people try once they graduate from the super-sweet and/or jug varieties. Today it remains the wine most people reach for in stores and restaurants. The reasons its so popular vary, but one primary factor is that chardonnay encompasses many styles of wine, styles that have changed over the years to adapt to our evolving tastes. As wine consumption emerged from the dark ages, vintners produced chardonnays that were buttery in texture, higher in alcohol and very oaky. While this was an attempt by California vintners to mimic the traditional white French Burgundy style of chardonnays, todays consumer typically seeks a wine thats lighter in body, fruit forward and with more acidity to pair the flavors with foods. These mostly un-oaked selections are often closer in style to sauvignon blanc than the traditional chardonnays. This doesnt mean that the white Burgundies are not popular and wellmade wines; there just is not a lot of production there compared to California. In 2012, total French production was down almost 20 percent, and prices for premium white Burgundy have always been higher than for its California and Washington State counterparts. Selecting the right chardonnay can be fun and exciting, as there are many choices from around the world. If full-bodied and structured is your style, look to the classic French ChassagneMontrachet and Puligny-Montrachet. Theyre not inexpensive (usually $35 to $75), but they will bring class and finesse to your glass. Less expensive foodfriendly wines such as the flinty Chablis, clean and crisp Pouilly-Fuisse and Macon-Villages are great values (less than $25). Look south of the equator for great values, too. South Africa produces wines mostly in the un-oaked or lightoak styles. Chile offers a wide range of styles, with many priced at less than $15. California makes both the butt ery and the crisp styles of chardonnay, and prices range from less than $20 up to $100 per bottle for the best quality. I like wines from Sonoma and Carneros for the style I prefer: fresh, clean and fruit forward. Here are some of my favorite chardonnays from around the world.Wine picks of the week: Adelsheim Chardonnay Willamette Valley 2010 ($25): This selection from Oregon starts with fresh green apple and orange aromas that lead to lively juicy apple and tangerine flavors and a zesty finish. Bouchard Finlayson Chardonnay Sans Barrique 2010 ($25): South Africa is better known for its pinot noir and pinotage wines, but this crisp un-oaked (sans barrique means without barrel) chardonnay is well worth trying. It opens with citrus and white flowers and finishes with flint and mineral flavors on a refreshing acid finish. Bouchard Pre & Fils PouillyFuisse 2010 ($30): This French wine opens with mineral and lemon citrus on the nose, followed by sleek graceful flavors of apple and lemon with a crisp finish with a touch of spice. Chalk Hill Chardonnay Chalk Hill Appellation 2010 ($50): Long known for high-quality wines, the 2010 vintage of this Sonoma wine has honeysuckle and honey on the nose, followed by ripe layers of apricot and tropical fruit flavors and a long, rich finish. Chateau St. Jean Chardonnay Robert Young Vineyard 2010 ($28): One of the better vineyards in the Alexander Valley district of Sonoma County, Chateau St. Jean has made fine wines from this appellation for many years. Floral and peach notes on the nose open up to melon and apple flavors and a graceful, long balanced finish. Chateau Ste. Michelle Chardonnay Columbia Valley Indian Wells Vineyard 2010 ($20): Look north of California and you will discover great wines at very reasonable prices in Washington State. This selection is crisp and citrusy, with pear and green apple flavors, and a brisk acidity ending in a lingering finish. Georges Duboeuf Macon-Villages Flower Label 2010 ($12): A great value for a French white, this one has well-balanced flavors of pear and apple with a hint of grapefruit that carries through into the finish. Rombauer Chardonnay Carneros 2010 ($35): Long a favorite of mine, this medium-bodied wine starts with big pear and citrus notes on the nose and moves to ripe full flavors of pear and tangerine, ending with a long, clean racy finish. Veramonte Chardonnay Casablanca Valley Reserva 2010 ($12): From Chile comes this well-balanced selection with apple and tropical fruits that start on the nose and carry through with a hint of balanced minerals and spice on the finish.

Reservations Recommended NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 4-10, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C47 CUISINEMarias Mexican restaurant has endured for more than two decadesAlong the honky-tonk strip that is Old 41 in Bonita Springs, the entrance to Marias stands out like a welcome beacon. Delicate tendrils of pink and lavender bougainvillea sprout from large clay pots, framing the doorway to this purveyor of authentic Mexican fare thats operated in the same spot since 1992. The interior has a lived-in feel that seems an amalgam of cultures. The first of two dining rooms boasts ornate chandeliers with bulbs resembling candles. They illuminate a dining room in which the chairs are outfitted with leather backs that bear the name Marias and decoratively tooled leather seats. They frame tables that are covered with plastic sheets on which is a dizzying array of bright sliced oranges. A multitude of Modelo beer banners share space on the walls with artwork depicting old English hunting scenes men on horseback, packs of hounds coursing at their heels. The British influence comes from the restaurants previous inhabitant, a British pub, which owners Maria and Jose Romero have chosen to preserve. Perhaps the Tiffanystyle lamps in the second dining room and the bar are throwbacks to that era, too. The clientele is as diverse as the ambience young and old, families and solo diners, gringos and Mexicans all share an affection for this Bonita Springs institution that sits just yards north of yet another institution, Everglades Wonder Gardens. Settle in to one of those leather-bound chairs and order what else? a margarita ($7), which comes straight up or on the rocks, with or without salt. Meanwhile, a server will have already delivered a large basket of tortilla chips along with little bowls of spicy salsa verde and mild salsa. Our server cautioned us about the heat of the tomatillo version, which was quite zesty. We spied yet an even hotter red salsa on some tables, which I suspect is supplied upon request. The fresh salsa had plenty of tomatoes, onions and cilantro, but needed a flavor boost in the form of chiles, lime and salt. I wondered if the kitchen had toned down the spices during the height of tourist season, since I remember a previous meal here at which everything had plenty of flavor. It was a thought that stayed with me throughout our dinner. Next up: guacamole ($5.25), that fresh blend of creamy avocadoes, tomatoes, cilantro and, usually, lime, garlic and spices. This version contained big chunks of avocado and tomato but was exceedingly mild. Using the lime wedges served with our margaritas, we added some juice to the mixture then topped each guacamole-laden chip with salsa verde. That added plenty of zip. The menu indicates tamales ($7.25) come stuffed with pork, chicken or rajas (poblano pepper). I asked for one with the poblanos so that my vegetarian companion could taste one. The server said the kitchen serves them randomly you get whatever three they pick out for you but said hed ask for one with poblanos. We wound up with three containing pork. The tamales came wrapped in the traditional corn husks in which theyd been steamed. The steaming tubes of masa were fragrant but on the dry side, containing just a trace of a tasty pork mixture. Marias offers a wealth of dishes you wont see in typical Tex-Mex establishments. Choices include sauted octopus, sopecitos, pozole and seafood soup ($14) that the menu promises is The Best. A large bowl arrived at the table filled with sopa mariscos, which contained shrimp, oysters, clams, octopus and fish. A smaller dish of avocado slices, cilantro, onion and lime wedges accompanied it. On its own, the broth was somewhat thin and one dimensional until we added the lime, onions, cilantro and a little more of that zesty salsa. The shrimp were tender, the fish firm and flaky. On the down side, the multitude of tiny oysters had the appearance and somewhat grainy texture of the canned variety. Fresh shellfish would have greatly enhanced this dish, although it would also have added to the price. At $14, it was already the most expensive item on the menu. Better was the Big Baked Burrito ($10), labeled one of the owners favorites. It was indeed big the large flour tortilla occupied more than half the plate. It was full of beans, cheese and shredded beef, topped with a full-flavored tomato sauce and served with rice and refried beans. The meat in this hearty dish was delicious and melded well with the other ingredients. For dessert, there was but one choice: flan ($4). We shared a wedge of the creamy custard that came with fresh whipped cream and drizzles of caramel and chocolate sauce. The service staff seemed somewhat overburdened on this Friday evening. The dining rooms didnt seem crowded during our visit but there were a couple of larger parties and perhaps they were working shorthanded. The result was that visits to the table were irregular. Whatever the problem, the staff compensated by being thoroughly pleasant and hospitable when they were tableside. Marias continues to be a place in which you can count on a warm welcome and an abundant meal at an economical price. Im hoping that the reduction in spice was an anomaly. This has long been a reliable spot in which to find authentic Mexican fare and that means it ought to have some kick to it.
