C21 As summer gets into full swing, students, teachers and parents alike are enjoying a break from the action-packed school year. It sounds great, but its actually in the kids best interest for them to keep up the pace over the summer. Researchers have found that June and July are the riskiest months of the year for firsttime drug and alcohol use among youth. What is it about summer? To put it simply: Too much time on youths hands + lack of supervision = trouble, according to Drug Free Action Alliance. The statistics bear this out: Each day during the school year, about 8,000 adolescents take their first drink of alcohol. Compare that to the average summer day, when about 11,000 adolescents take their first drink of alcohol. For kids trying cigarettes or marijuana for the first time, the numbers go up from about 3,500 per day during the school year to 4,500 on a summer day. As for students who have already begun drinking and smoking, many are known to indulge more often and more heavily during June and July.Tips for parentsHere are some things parents can do to help prevent their children from becoming part of the statistics: Help them create structure for their days, whether by working part-time, volunteering, taking part in a class or camp, etc. Help them discover what interests them.

His face is cast in careworn struggle, and for good reason. Writing is like driving nails with the wrong hand, or walking a mile of summer swamp, or sinking 100 fence posts in rocky country that rises 1,000 feet over half a mile. Its hard to do well without suffering. So Twain has girded himself for the endeavor: Hes plumped the pillows on his four-poster bed before leaning comfortably back. Hes rolled up his sleeves, pulled a wool blanket to his waist, and situated a pad of paper on his lap. Theres probably a cup of tea sitting around somewhere (alcoholic elixirs were not Twains problem). Finally, and mustering all his strength, hes managed to heft the single great tool of his trade, as it was then practiced a one-ounce pen. Or maybe its a pencil. Whatever it is, its not a computer. Its not even a typewriter. That particular game-changer was invented in various incarnations no less than 52 times, Joan Acocella once reported in The New Yorker magazine. One popular version, first produced by an arms manufacturer in the 1870s when Mark Twain was hitting his stride (hard to do in bed, I know), appeared because the rifle market had declined precipitously after the Civil War. It was a Remington typewriter, mounted on a sewing machine stand. But in the photo, Twain uses only a pen nothing more than a pointed stick that can mark paper. With that Paleolithic tool, he changed the way we understand being human, or being a human American. Paradoxically, the first book ever written on a typewriter was his: Life on the Mississippi, published in 1883. He didnt actually write it, however; he probably dictated penned copy to a secretary, then submitted the typewritten version to his publisher. Ive worked up a business here that would satisfy any man, I dont care who he is, Twain noted in chapter 43. Five years ago, lodged in an attic; live in a swell house now with a mansard roof and all the modern inconveniences. He achieved that reality not at the helm of a riverboat but in bed, assisted by Johannes Gutenbergs invention of the printing press, in 1440. Now, typewriters have become dinosaurs, even deader than pointed sticks. Now we have computers, Google and Facebook, and no Mark Twain. But I think Twain would have leaped into the center of the new technologies. He would have embraced them with his own brand of genius, just as he embraced the pointed stick and the typewriter. Twain was a modernist in two senses: He saw great promise in technology, depending on who was using it. And he was skeptical of all bloviating claims, especially in matters of politics and religion where evidence is so frequently anecdotal, and so deservedly suspect. I have a religion but you will call it blasphemy, he once wrote to his older brother, Orion Clemens. It is that there is a God for the rich man but none for the poor. That thought is so modern it remains contemporary. To make such an acute judgment to be able to think so clearly about the worlds violent eddies and swirls, and about its cascading injustices remains the goal of any serious writer, whether a tragic or a comic stylist. Judgment, without which any writing is vacuous, requires experience and thought no matter what the technology of the moment may be, or the temperament of the writer. I realized this again last week when I finally signed up for Facebook, breaking ranks not only with antiquity, but with the sluggish habits of my own demographic: males between the ages of 125 and 175, or thereabouts. Chromosome Y baby boomers are among the least likely to take part in the online parade of social media, statistics show. The epiphany hit me right between the eyes when I read a single entry from a much younger parade goer, Santiago De Choch. He did exactly what Twain did he garnered experience somewhere (Israel, rather than on the Mississippi River), spent the next 15 years thinking about it, and then picked up a writing tool. Agree or not with Santiagos sugarfree pessimism, his words suggest that Facebook is just another pointed stick. It offers the same potential as the pen or typewriter to architects of thought and language: the potential to change the way we think about being human, or being a human American. Heres what he wrote: Getting drunk after visiting Yad Vashem, the holocaust museum in Jerusalem, I had a couple of insights: 1) Theres no God. 2) Germans are s**t. A decade and a half later, older and hopefully a bit wiser, I have revised those insights. 1) Theres no God. 2) Humans are s**t Now I can write him back if I want to, on Facebook. I can bicker with a pointed sticker, which makes me a modern man with social lan. Santiago, No theyre not. You must be thinking of monkeys. The people I admire dont do holocausts. Its the monkeys among us. Twain scratched the issue too, coming down mostly on the side of Santiago. I am quite sure (that) in matters concerning religion and politics a mans reasoning powers are not above the monkeys, he wrote. And he wrote it with a pointed stick.

The former CIA staffer and analyst for the private intelligence consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton spoke to journalists Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Barton Gellman in Hong Kong, providing convincing evidence that the U.S. government, primarily the National Security Agency, is conducting massive, unconstitutional surveillance globally, and perhaps most controversially, on almost all, if not all, U.S. citizens. The chorus of establishment condemnation was swift and unrelenting. Jeffrey Toobin, legal pundit, quickly blogged that Snowden is a grandiose narcissist who deserves to be in prison. New York Times columnists chimed in, with Thomas Friedman writing, I dont believe that Edward Snowden, the leaker of all this secret material, is some heroic whistle-blower. His colleague David Brooks engaged in speculative psychoanalysis of Snowden, opining, (t)hough obviously terrifically bright, he could not successfully work his way through the institution of high school. Then he failed to navigate his way through community college. Snowdens educational path has attracted significant attention. U.S. senators oh-so-gently questioned NSA Director Gen. Keith B. Alexander and others at a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing, including liberal Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, echoing Brooks incredulity that someone with a GED could possibly hoodwink the entire U.S. intelligence apparatus. Alexander confessed, In the IT arena, in the cyber arena, some of these people have skills to operate networks. That was his job for the most part; he had great skills in the area. The rest of it youve hit on the head. We do need to go back and look at the processes where we went wrong. Legendary whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg countered the criticism, writing, In my estimation, there has not been in American history a more important leak than Edward Snowdens release of NSA material and that definitely includes the Pentagon Papers 40 years ago. Snowdens whistleblowing gives us the possibility to roll back a key part of what has amounted to an executive coup against the U.S. Constitution. Snowdens historic leak revealed what he calls an architecture of oppression a series of top-secret surveillance programs that go far beyond what has been publicly known to date. The first was an order from the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court requesting a division of the phone giant Verizon to hand over all call detail records for calls to or from the U.S. and locations abroad, or all calls within the U.S., including local calls. In other words, metadata for every phone call that Verizon Business Network Services processed was to be delivered to the NSA on a daily basis. Another document was a slide presentation revealing a program dubbed PRISM, which allegedly empowers NSA snoops access to all the private data stored by Internet giants like Microsoft, AOL, Skype, Google, Apple and Facebook, including email, video chats, photos, files transfers and more. Snowden released Presidential Policy Directive 20 a top-secret memo from President Barack Obama directing U.S. intelligence agencies to draw up a list of targets for U.S. cyberattacks. Finally came proof of the program called Boundless Informant, which creates a global heat map detailing the source countries of the 97 billion intercepted electronic records collected by the NSA in the month of March 2013. Among the top targets were Iran, Pakistan, Egypt and Jordan. The leaked map color-codes countries: red for hot, then yellow and green. Last March, the U.S. was yellow, providing the NSA with close to 2.9 billion intercepts. The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit immediately after the programs were revealed, arguing that the practice is akin to snatching every Americans address book with annotations detailing whom we spoke to, when we talked, for how long, and from where. It gives the government a comprehensive record of our associations and public movements, revealing a wealth of detail about our familial, political, professional, religious, and intimate associations. Edward Snowden, at the time of this writing, is in hiding, presumably still in Hong Kong, where he told the South China Morning Post, I am not here to hide from justice; I am here to reveal criminality. In the videotaped interview he gave to Greenwald and Poitras, Snowden spoke of his reasons behind the leak: Sitting at my desk, (I) certainly had the authorities to wiretap anyone, from you or your accountant to a federal judge, to even the president. ... This is something thats not our place to decide. The public needs to decide whether these programs and policies are right or wrong. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

He could denounce Bush administration counterterrorism initiatives from a glorious position of civil-libertarian purity and posit the need to strike a perfect balance between privacy and security. Then he got elected president, and the mere posturing had to end. He had to grow up. Invested with responsibility for keeping the country safe and, no doubt, informed of potential threats in hair-raising terms on a daily basis, he jettisoned his innocent civil-libertarianism. In light of what were dire and real threats to our security, he had no choice but to use the surveillance powers of the government to foil them. Now, President Obama thinks the Goldilocks balance he has always spoken of is struck by a vast National Security Agency monitoring program that vacuums up the phone records of all Americans. There is poetic justice in hearing the president excoriated in exactly the same terms as President George W. Bush by the very same people who worked to get him elected to end the terrible abuses of the Bush-Cheney regime. But the fact is that in least this respect Obama grew up and they didnt. As president, he didnt have the luxury of turning his back on Bush policies merely because they were Bush policies. In his press conference, he said of the NSA program that upon taking office, he concluded on net, it was worth us doing. Whereas his allies can either pretend that the terror threat doesnt exist or that there are easy and simple ways of combatting it, he has to deal with it in the real world. As he said of the programs, My assessment and my teams assessment was that they help us prevent terrorist attacks. There seems little question that the NSA programs are constitutional and legal. The Internet element is directed at foreigners overseas to whom our Fourth Amendment doesnt apply. As for the phone program, it involves metadata i.e., phone numbers dialed, and for what duration, and from where that courts have held arent protected by the Fourth Amendment the same way that the actual content of conversations are. Congress authorized the program, albeit somewhat vaguely, in Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act. The question here isnt if Obama is lawless or shredding the Constitution. It is whether the program is proportionate and wise. The metadata are fed into the maw of government algorithms. It is only anomalies that, assuming a court warrant can be obtained, get more attention. But the government is nonetheless sweeping up the records of Americans who have done nothing to earn anyones suspicion. The information lands on the desktops of the likes of whistleblower Edward Snowden, who it turns out isnt a very reliable custodian of sensitive data. The Snowden leak was wrong, but at least it makes possible an open debate about the program that might lead to useful tightening and new controls. Years ago, Barack Obamas contribution to that debate might have been as hyperbolic and irresponsible as that of his disappointed friends. Now, evidently, he knows better.

Consider hiring a trusted college-age buddy to check in on them or hang out with them for short periods of time. Then, check in regularly. Know where your children are, who they are with and what they are planning to do. Monitor them, and insist that they let you know in the event any part of their plan changes. Beware of summer parties and do not allow your children to attend one where underage drinking is planned, even under the agreement that they will not drink. No matter how much you trust your son or daughter, it is never wise to put any child in a position where peer pressure can easily overcome their better judgment. Help your teen devise an exit plan for himself should he find himself at a party where alcohol or other drugs come out. Make sure he knows he can call you (or another trusted adult), day or night, for a safe getaway. Lead by example. Show your children that a party does not have to include alcohol in order to be fun. And if you choose to drink at a gathering, do so in moderation and let your children see that you are not driving. For better or worse, they are watching and learning. Stress and keep stressing that they should never ride in a car, boat or any other motor vehicle with a driver who is under the influence of any substance.

PAGE 8 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 20-26, 2013 Real estate rebounding with the help of quick turnarounds BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ IT COMES DOWN TO THIS QUESTION: CAN real estate investors flip homes successfully through the second half of 2013 without flipping out of business, or are the evolving markets on both the southeast and southwest coasts increasingly perilous for quick-buck ambition? The answers may be both yes and yes, according to Realtors and investors alike in the distinctive and sometimes dissimilar markets from Palm Beach Gardens on the east to Naples, Fort Myers and Punta Gorda on the west. Here, through the eyes of the experts in several markets, Florida Weekly glances at both the opportunities and the complexities inherent in flipping the investment art of buying property then reselling it in short order at a significant profit. Although the process came to symbolize poor judgment and greedy excess during the recessionary years between 2006 and 2009, thats changed significantly. First off, says Rick Shaffner, a former Michigan bank president and now partner in a consortium of five investors who own about 300 rental properties on the southwest coast, I wouldnt call it flipping thats a derogatory term going back to 2006-2007. Guys were going in and not even closing these deals, buying a property for a hundred grand when they already had it sold for $150,000, and taking $50,000 off the table and letting somebody else close it. For many banks and loan agencies, not to mention flippers, it was an anything-goes time. The flipping thing got a bad rep because there wasnt any real value added, says Tom Weekes, a Keller-Williams Realtor based in Charlotte County who teams with his wife, Gay Weekes, to do business from Cape Coral north to Sarasota. It was just a crazy market that allowed people to make a lot of money provided they flipped it over quickly and didnt get caught without a chair when the music stopped, so to speak. Now, however, home-buying loans remain much more difficult to get from banks, and investors come to the game with money in hand. Investors are also much more likely to restore the properties they buy nowadays often they have to if theyre buying foreclosed homes that have sat vacant adding value before they sell, or renting them out for the time being. That way, they can capitalize on strong rental markets and bet with a bit more security on increasing home values as investment opportunities begin to shrink. I am seeing investors hold for rentals as rental prices are up, says Kathryn Klar, a real estate agent for Lang Realty in Palm Beach Gardens. The comment might apply to many communities where investors appear to be profiting significantly, or waiting just a bit longer to profit significantly. And now, nobody appears to be questioning flippers for lacking virtue or value. This is taking care of business, says Jim Green, a Realtor based in Lee County. Too often society ignores blight and proceeds to build anew in other places. Blight begets blight. These restorations cause values to go up, improving the tax base for the subject property and the surrounding community. As Naples-based, John R. Wood Realtors Karyn and Rowan Samuel see it, every transaction generates cash; each sale affects the local economy, says Mr. Samuel. Real estate has a tremendous trickle down effect on multiple industries from the sellers cashing out, to the builders and contractors, the brokerages and Realtors, the closing agents, all the way down to retail to furniture and car sales, to dining and entertainment. An improving real estate market (helped by flippers) is an economic powerhouse, and I think we are starting to see that, especially in areas like Naples and Miami that are in-demand real estate markets.Cause for excitement?All that said, last month, Realtytrac Inc., a market analyst, published a survey that identified the 25 hottest markets for flipping homes in the United States, based on sales from the first quarter of 2012 through the first quarter of 2013. The company defined a flip as the buying and reselling of a home within six months. First, it picked 600 markets nationwide where flips occurred. From those, it picked metro areas where at least 500 homebuyers flipped their properties in 2012, winnowing that number down to metro markets with a 9 percent annual increase in home values over a year, or more. From that grouping, finally, the surveyors listed the 25 top markets. They awarded list position based in part on gross profit defined as a percentage of the first selling price, explains company Vice President Daren Blomquist, in an online description of the process. Thus, if a buyer picked up a home for $150,000 and sold it for $200,000 within six months, the gross profit of $50,000 would amount to 33 percent of the original price. On the Realtytrac list, five of the first 10 markets appear in Florida, including Orlando (No. 1 in the nation), Tampa (No. 4), Miami (No. 6), Lakeland (No. 7) and Sarasota (No. 9). Lee Countys Fort Myers/Cape Coral the market once ranked first in the nation for foreclosures came in at 20 on the list. The results led Mr. Blomquist to offer a rosy prediction for those with the capital to flip homes in 2013. Flipping homes buying, rehabbing and reselling for a profit usually within about 90 days will likely become more favorable for investors in 2013 as home prices are expected to rise, he writes. And while buying homes as rentals still offers a solid rate of return in many markets, many buyand-sell investors typically flip properties peri-

If its a foreclosure market, its all being purchased by investors now, says Tara Bua-Bell, a Realtor and partner with her mother Emily Bua in Naples Estate Properties. Id say for those investors in the last six to nine months especially, it becomes a question of whether theyre going to make a profit. Collier County was not as affected as some outlying counties or communities like Lehigh Acres and Cape Coral by the recession. I think Realtytrac sometimes does a disservice because theyre not looking at indicators like that. If youre a market hit hardest, your numbers are likely to go up. In Lee Countys Cape Coral, together with nearby Lehigh Acres one of the markets hit hardest in the United States by foreclosures, thats precisely whats been happening, says Frank Ehrhardt, a Realtor with Cape Realty. Mr. Ehrhardt flipped houses in Los Angeles and Chicago before moving to Cape Coral three years ago to invest in an opportunity himself. Its a perfect time to have gotten into this because we bought our home at close to the bottom, he says. The low-range market is where its easiest to get in, and its where a lot of the flipping happens. Groups and companies buy in, and were seeing a lot of individuals, too. But sometimes, he says, those individuals regret their investments because they dont see unanticipated costs before they invest. Still, flipping is becoming extremely competitive, he notes. In 25 purchase offers Mr. Ehrhardt has made for his clients so far this year, at least 20 have have faced competing bids on the same day, he says. That experience is common. We recently listed a Cape Coral home that was attractive to investors and had five above-asking-price offers within 48 hours, says Jim Green. That has become the current norm. But Mr. Green echoes the voices of several of his colleagues by questioning the easy optimism of the Realtytrac survey, and data like it. The gross profit numbers used by the media have been very misleading, he says. They exclude disaster remediation, renovation and improvements say $20,000 on the average home purchased at $138,000. Typical cost-ofsale in our market is about 9 percent. If that home is sold at $189,000, the math says the investor made 9 percent on a $158,000 high-risk investment, less purchase fees and carrying costs. Mr. Green was using some other figures from Realtytrac in his example of built-in but unseen costs, in which the company described the Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade metropolis as the number one market in the U.S. for flipping (taken together, those communities ranked ahead of Orlando). There, from the first quarter of 2012 through the first quarter of 2013, about 4,300 houses were flipped by investors who bought in at an average price of $138,000 or so, and sold at an average price of about $189,000, within six months. And finally, investors worry about other unseen factors, too shadow inventories, for example. We think now we have an 18 to 36-month period left (for these investments), says Mr. Shaffner. Its more difficult to find deals that make sense on a rental program now. And theres a caveat: Is there a shadow inventory? Are there a lot of homes that havent been released by the banks or Freddie Mac yet? Are they holding on to them and releasing them slowly because they cant afford the capital hit? Nevertheless, Mr. Shaffner and his team of investors who can use family members to contract and restore properties, are sticking to an original plan defined in dollars per square foot. In 2009 they started out paying about $35 a square foot for homes in Lehigh Acres and Cape Coral. Now theyre paying about $55, and their bet this is the gamble based on savvy and experience is that values will go up to about $75 per square foot. And thats when they might sell significant numbers of their 300-plus rental properties, he says. All of which seems like an opportunity to live with a lot of stress. But thats the life of an entrepreneur any entrepreneur, but especially real estate investors, he says. Anybody whos an entrepreneur wakes up every morning unemployed, he explains. I dont have Ford Motor Co., or Chicos, or somebody else giving me a paycheck. So I wake up every morning unemployed, and figure out a way to create income. Anybody whos 100 percent commission, thats who we are. Flipping voices>> Rick Shaffner, investor and partner with four others who now own more than 300 properties, mostly in Lee County: Starting in 2009, I was buying houses and duplexes that sold at the height of the boom for $300,000, for $40,000. So I was buying (primarily in Lehigh Acres) at the top of the market for 15 to 20 cents on the dollar. Were from Detroit. My business partner managed 300 houses in Detroit, and those houses went for $500. You cant give them away in Detroit. So Lehigh still has a reputation, but my business partner says, This is paradise. I havent had to wear a ak jacket, I dont carry my gun to collect rent, and I dont have to have two guys with me. But even the lenders here still are scared silly of this, still. We got here and we were like, how can you go wrong? These are 1970s prices, for Gods sake. You get 1,500 square feet for $45,000 and you put $15,000 or $20,000 into it? Now, were buying properties for $50 to $55 a square foot, and our goal is to get to $75 a square foot. We think we can do that.>> Rowen Samuel, the Samuel Team of John R. Wood Realtors, Naples: We have de nitely seen an increase in ips, but the majority of these are single-family neighborhood based locations where values have increased over the past several years, including Park Shore, Moorings, Coquina Sands and Old Naples (areas west of U.S. 41 in Naples), as well as Royal Harbor. Flips tend to be investor situations where a home or lot previously sold for lot value (or less), is torn down and replaced by a brand new home, and is then marketed at a substantially higher price because it is new and in a highly desirable location. We are also seeing a lot of remodels of existing homes (versus a tear down) that are being ipped. Yet another situation is where investors purchased at the bottom of the market, rented the homes for a year or two, and are now selling them for a healthy pro t.>> Jim Green, Jim Green Realty, Lee County: We see an increasing desire to invest, and a decreasing inventory, both in the buy and sell market, and in the buy, rent and hold market. In the portion of the market where investors operate, there has been a shift toward a sellers market. For redevelopment and in ll, the so-called ippers are leading the way. My advice to investors: Know the market and opportunities. Be prepared to make aggressive purchase offers instantaneously. Many land mines exist in the purchase process beware. Without adding value to a property, I see no opportunities to buy and sell quickly (say six months) at a pro t. Consider offering ownernancing to buyers unable to receive bank loans very few such properties are offered and there is a strong need.>> Frank Ehrhardt, Cape Realty, Cape Coral: Flipping has become extremely competitive so people who were sitting on the sidelines for the last year or two are facing bigger challenges. People have to be decisive and ready to make an offer when they see an opportunity. The days of buying a property for $50,000 or $60,000 are gone. Now its difcult to nd anything for under $100,000. Looking ahead, you still cant build a house for as cheaply as you can buy one, so until we reach that equilibrium, prices will continue to increase.>> Tom Weekes, Realtor and partner with Gay Weekes, based in Charlotte County: Were still seeing this ipping a lot. A guy came to a sales meeting recently, and he said, Ive got $6 million, me and my friends. If you have a property that will rent for a certain amount, and it can be bought for a certain amount, well buy it and rent it. Or if you see something that wont be such a good rental property but it needs to be rehabbed, well talk about it. What happens with foreclosures is they sit empty for a couple years. Theyre pretty rotten. Now, the real estate investment trust companies who would typically buy commercial real estate for investments have gone to buying residential property, which is good because every time a foreclosure hits the market and is sold as a foreclosure, it keeps driving down the appraisal values of homes.

Then, using a thin metal rod with a round tip, he gently massages the inside of each lid. Mr. Liu told a reporter for the Chengdu Business Daily in April that he had never had an accident (though the reporter apparently could not be enticed to experience the treatment himself, preferring merely to observe), and a highly satisfied customer reported afterward that his eyes felt moist and his vision clearer. A local hospital official said eye-shaving can scrape away scar tissue and stimulate the eyes to lubricate the eye sockets. Cultural diversity One of Aprils most popular Internet images consisted of face shots of the current 20 contestants for Miss South Korea revealing that all 20 appeared eerily similar, and Westernized. Commented one website, Koreas plastic surgery mayhem is finally converging on the same face. Wrote a South Korean commenter, Girls here consider eye surgery just like using makeup. Wrote another, I loved this episode of the Twilight Zone. The country has the highest rate of cosmetic surgery per capita in the world. Michinoku Farm of Tokyo finally agreed in May to withdraw its whale meat dog chews, but only after angering environmentalists for having favored the countrys pampered canines over endangered North Atlantic fin whales, which were the source of the chews. The meat was purchased from Iceland, which openly defies the international moratorium on whale meat. (Japan officially disagrees with world consensus on which species are endangered.) A marriage-encouraging initiative in the Sehore district of Indias Madhya Pradesh state awards gifts and financial assistance to couples agreeing to wed in mass ceremonies, but the country also suffers from a notorious toilet shortage. Consequently, the district announced in May that to qualify for the government benefits, the groom must submit to officials a photo of himself beside his own toilet to prove that he and his wife will have home sanitation. Latest religious messages A Saudi judge ruled in April that it was finally time for Ali al-Khawahir, 24, to suffer for stabbing another boy in the back when Ali was 14. The victim was paralyzed, and under Saudi justice, Ali must also be struck with paralysis or else raise the equivalent of about $260,000 to compensate the victim. Saudi cleric Abdullah Mohamed alDaoud in May urged his 100,000 Twitter followers to sexually harass female cashiers to discourage them from working outside the home. (He is the one who urged in February that babies be veiled to protect them from sexual harassment.) Crystal McVea, author of a recent book chronicling her near-death experience, told a Fox & Friends TV host in April that among her most vivid memories of the incident was getting so close to God that she could smell him. In May, Anna Pierre, a candidate for mayor of North Miami, Fla., announced on her Facebook page that she had secured the endorsement of Jesus Christ. That would be doubly fortunate for her since a month earlier, she had complained that unknown people had been leaving bad-luck Vodou-ritual feathers, food scraps and candles on her doorstep. (Jesus stroke is apparently not what it used to be: She finished seventh in the race.) A catering company in Leicestershire, England, became a holy site in May after the Hindu owner found an eggplant that resembles the elephant-headed Lord Ganesh. He said that he prays to it now twice daily and has so far welcomed about 80 visiting worshippers. As part of his recent U.S. tour, the Dalai Lama, introduced to a University of Maryland audience by Maryland Gov. Martin OMalley, greeted the governor on stage by rubbing noses with him. Questionable judgments Expectant North Carolina parents Adam and Heather Barrington (who is due in July) have disclosed that they will accept underwater midwifing from the Sirius Institute of Pahoa, Hawaii, which arranges for the mother to swim with dolphins preand post-natally. It is about reconnecting as humans with the dolphins so we can ... learn from one another, said Heather. Said Adam: Dolphins are very intelligent and healing, which ... calms mother and baby. ... Biologists writing for the Discovery Channel, however, reminded readers that underwater births are extraordinarily dangerous and that dolphins are wild animals that gang-rape female dolphins and toss, beat and kill small porpoises. Said another, the Barringtons plan is possibly the worst idea ever. Washington, D.C., began registering its dogs this year by their primary breeds and, faced with many owners who claimed not to know their dogs heritage, quixotically settled on the Mexican hairless dog, or xoloitzcuintli (pronounced show-low-eats-QUEENT-lee, according to The Washington Post) as the breed that will be listed in city records for those dogs. An official said the decision might encourage owners to learn more about their dogs breed. Of all the businesses that could fall out of favor with a local government, it was the restaurant Bacon Bacon that was shut down in May by the city of San Francisco because of neighbors complaints about the smell! (The fragrance of bacon is widely experienced as entrancing all across America.) A petition to overturn the ruling was under way at press time. More than 50 Iowa sex offenders have open-carry gun permits, thanks to a 2-year-old state law that requires any disapproving sheriff to demonstrate probable cause in advance that a sex offender will use a gun illegally in order to reject his application. Before that, a sheriff could use a sex offenders previous felony conviction as sufficient cause. Said Washington County Sheriff Jerry Dunbar, (J)ust the presence of a gun on a hip could be a threat to get (sex-crime victims) to cooperate. $1Emergency Exam (D0140), X-Ray (D0220) and Photos (D0471)With Coupon Only.

People from all walks of life are juicing to lose weight, energize, sleep better, strengthen their immune systems and have brighter skin and a younger appearance, Ms. Calbom says. Theyre also juicing to help their bodies heal from a variety of ailments, she adds. For those just getting started, she offers The Juice Ladys Big Book of Juices and Green Smoothies, chocked full of juicing tips, tricks and recipes. No matter your diet, juicing offers a shot of goodness nutrition, minerals, phytonutrients and more that you might not otherwise get, she says. Here are some of her insights and pointers: Fruits and veggies happiness studies: Plenty of research shows that adding more produce to your daily diet can benefit your mental health and sense of well-being. In one analysis of the eating habits and moods of 80,000 British adults, researchers at Dartmouth and the University of Warwick found that those who consumed the most fruit and vegetables every day rated themselves as significantly happier and more satisfied with their lives than those who ate lesser amounts. The well-being score for people who ate seven to eight servings of vegetables and fruits per day was consistently three points higher than for those who ate little or none. More research: Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health concluded from a study of 982 Americans that those who exhibited the most optimistic outlooks on life also had the highest blood levels of carotene, a key antioxidant thats delivered by a colorful array of produce: dark green spinach and kale, carrots and sweet potatoes, and vibrant yellow or orange fruits like peaches, papayas and cantaloupe, among others. Why not just eat produce? The reality is that most people in todays society rarely get an optimal amount of fruits and veggies throughout the day. A cup of vegetables is considered a serving, whereas of a cup of juice equals one serving; chewing seven to eight servings of produce every day requires much more effort and time than drinking fresh juice for some of the servings. Flavor diversification: Some people fall into creative ruts because they stick to the same basic ingredients, and that can be a disincentive for sticking with juicing. Ms. Calbom suggests breaking out of the juice box by trying gourmet and exotic blends, or even plantbased ingredients you simply havent yet considered, such as butternut squash, chunks of gingerroot, beets with leaves and stems, Brussels sprouts and fennel bulbs with fronds. Spice it up and experiment, she says. An exotic example: A fennel-watercress-cucumber blend juice is an excellent way to mix up your typical cocktail. It includes: A handful of watercress, one dark green lettuce leaf, one cucumber (peeled if not organic), fennel bulb and fronds and one lemon (peeled if not organic). Cut produce to fit your juicers feed tube. Wrap watercress in lettuce leaf and push through the juicer slowly. Juice all remaining ingredients. Drink immediately. This portion serves one.

Approximately 8 percent of those new infections occur in Florida. New CDC data indicates that there are now more than 1.7 million Americans living with HIV, and at least 25 percent of those do not know that they are HIV-positive. The Collier County Department of Health reports that there are more than 1,500 reported cases of HIV/AIDS in Collier County, with an average of 50 cases a year reported over the past five years. In conjunction with the 19th annual National HIV Testing Day on Thursday, June 27, the local health department is offering free HIV testing at locations throughout Collier County Monday-Friday, June 24-28. HIV testing is an important step in the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone between the ages of 14 and 64 take an HIV test at least once a year. The decision to take the test is the first step in taking responsibility for your health and the health of others with whom you may be intimately involved. Heres the schedule of local free testing: The Marion E. Fether Medical Center, 1454 Madison Ave. W., Immokalee: Rapid HIV testing, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday, June 24-28; 658-3000.

MARTY BECKER & GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickTornadoes, hurricanes, fires, floods and earthquakes there are few places on Earth that are not vulnerable to one or more natural disasters. Weve learned from countless disasters that people often will put their own lives at risk and the lives of first responders as well if there are no options for relocating with their animal companions. Public planning now includes pets, and your own planning should, too. Here are the basics you need to know: Have a plan. Prepare for all possibilities, and make sure everyone in your family knows what to do. Try to figure out now whats most likely for you and your community, and how you will respond. Where will you go? What will you take? You need to get these answers in advance. Get to know your neighbors, and put a plan in place to help each other out. Find out from local shelters and veterinary organizations and your familys own veterinarian what emergency response plans are in place and how you fit into them in case of a disaster. ID your pets. Many, if not most, animals will survive a disaster. But too many will never see their families again if theres no way to determine which pet belongs to which family. Thats why pets should always wear a collar and identification tags with your cellphone number and the numbers of a couple of out-of-area contacts. Better still is the additional permanent identification that cant slip off, such as a tattoo or an embedded microchip. Practice preventive care. Disease follows disaster, which is why keeping a pet as healthy as possible with up-to-date vaccinations is essential. Prepare a file with up-to-date medical records, your pets microchip or tattoo numbers, your veterinarians phone number and address, feeding and medication instructions, and recent pictures of your animals. Trade copies of emergency files with another pet-loving friend or family member. Its a good idea for someone else to know about your pet, should anything happen to you. Have restraints ready. Even normally calm pets can freak out under the stress of an emergency, especially if injured. You should be prepared to restrain your pet for his safety and the safety of others. Keep leashes, muzzles and carriers ready for emergencies. The means to transport your pet shouldnt be something you have to find and pull from the rafters of your garage. Harnesses work better than collars at keeping panicky pets safe. Shipping crates are probably the least-thought-of pieces of emergency equipment for pet owners, but are among the most important. Sturdy crates keep pets safe and give you more options for housing your pets if you have to leave your home. Keep supplies on hand. Keep several days worth of pet food and safe drinking water ready to go in the event of a disaster, as well as any necessary medicines. Canned food is better in an emergency, so lay in a couple of cases, and dont forget to pack a can opener with your emergency supplies. For cats, keep an extra bag of litter on hand. And pack lots of plastic bags for dealing with waste. Learn first aid. Pet-supply stores sell ready-made first-aid kits, or you can put your own together fairly easily with the help of any pet-related first-aid book or website. Keep a first-aid book with your supplies. If you check around in your community, you should be able to find a pet first-aid class to take that will give you the basic knowledge you need. Be prepared to help. You may be lucky enough to survive a disaster nearly untouched, but others in your community wont be so fortunate. Check out groups that train volunteers for disaster response, and consider going through the training. Disaster-relief workers do everything from distributing food to stranded animals to helping reunite pets with their families, and helping find new homes for those animals who need them. Volunteering in a pinch is not only a good thing to do, its also the right thing for anyone who cares about animals and people. Making evacuation plans that include your pet will leave you better prepared to cope with disasters of all kinds. >>Bramble is a neutered, 2-yearold terrier mix who doesnt know how he ended up homeless.

Growing up here in our little corner of Southwest Florida, I didnt think we had much of a history at all. I mean, when a flooring store boasts in its radio ads that theyve BEEN IN THE SAME LOCATION SINCE 1992, its just not all that impressive. So, I satisfied my inner historian by reading books about England and Virginia and Boston and such. Then along came the Interwebs, and suddenly a whole new world of local history opened up for me. Now I find myself spending far too much time not going to the gym and instead surfing websites and Facebook pages where I spend hours reading about pirates and Seminoles and soldiers. But mostly I love looking at the faded, sepia photographs from the old-timey days, mostly because I seriously need to understand how women could walk around these parts in long-sleeved, ankle-length dresses with tightly buttoned-up collars, along with hats, little gloves and lace-up boots. Its only mid-June and my girlfriends and I are wailing and gnashing our teeth over the fact that its somehow frowned upon to attend an event wrapped in a thin sheet pulled fresh from the refrigerator. Our mascara melts off the second we walk outside, Spanx are out of the question, and even though we havent been doing push-ups all winter long to tone our arms and shoulders First Lady style, we throw caution to the wind and leave the house in tank tops anyway. But I do understand why turn-of-thecentury Southwest Florida pioneers, men and women alike, covered up so much. Besides the modesty of the period, those folks had no SPF anything to keep them from being burnt to a crisp. Plus, there was no mosquito control to prevent them from being eaten alive by swarms of the pesky blood-suckers. Why they even settled here, I havent a clue. And here I am whining about what the humidity is doing to my hair and lamenting the fact that I have to shave my legs on a regular basis so I can wear shorts. Im definitely a diva who prefers to study history from a century away, as I certainly cant imagine living it at least without a hand-held, battery-operated fan in my purse.

jeannetteSHOWALTER, CFAshowalter@ww fsyst MONEY & INVESTINGWhen equity and bond markets stumbleWhen equity and bond markets falter or move erratically, investors take pause. Their confidence is eroded and their view of the world is brought into doubt. Beyond the psychological effects, there might be changes made a crimp in spending plans as some gains have been taken from the portfolio, a shift to more cash, etc. In all of the sorting that readers might do at this juncture, a review of several themes that have been presented in this column could be in order. Consider this Money and Investings greatest hits of the past two years. I hope some of the insights and advice I have offered will prove relevant and lead to further discussions with your investment adviser. The first theme is to worry less abour your portfolios return and worry more the parts of your life that have the potential to consume large amounts of capital, expenditures far in excess of a portfolios common mis-step. Some of your most important financial assets exist outside of the portfolio (Aug. 9, 2012) focused on the cost of failed relationships: ending failed marriages; helping children overcome alcohol, drug, gambling and other lifestyle issues; and reversing our own unhealthy lifestyles. Allocate time and resources toward these critical relationships before they become a crisis especially your own health, a treasured yet ofttimes forgotten asset. If you are unhealthy, how will you garner physical and emotional strength needed to fix any problems beyond your health? Second, most investors do not have the time, skills or emotional disposition to actively trade their portfolios, adjust their allocations or the like. The column of Feb. 7, 2013, A portfolio that stands strong despite the economic weather, suggests that, if investors accept that the future is not knowable and that the imponderable does/ eventually happens, then they can focus on creating a portfolio that can handle all economic weathers or eventualities. The concept of an all-weather portfolio was made popular by famed investment manager Ray Dalio of Bridgewater Associates, whose All Weather Fund has a premise: When investing over the long run, all you can have confidence in is that (1) holding assets should provide a return above cash, and (2) asset volatility will be largely driven by how economic conditions unfold relative to current expectations (as well as how these expectations change). Thats it. Anything else (asset class returns, correlations, or even precise volatilities) is an attempt to predict the future. The All Weather Fund is allocated far beyond equities and bonds (even into asset classes perceived as much higher risk). The composite of these diverse asset classes is expected to handle all weathers of deflation, stagflation, inflation, high growth, etc. Third, remember that the average retail investors confidence in equity investing swings with the market. When the market is already up, the retail investor is feeling good about the markets prospects and is inclined to make new or additional investments at higher prices. When the market is down, the retail investor becomes fearful of the future and more market losses and is inclined to take money off the table after the market has retrenched. My March 28, 2013 column, Chasing short skirts and investment hotties, provides the following alarming statistic: A study by the consulting firm DALBAR examined the effect of chasing returns between 1984 and 2003. Investors in stock mutual funds who frequently traded out of funds during that period earned an average annual return of 3.51 percent. In contrast, the market, as measured by the S&P 500 Index, earned a 12.98 percent average annual return. (Website BMO Retirement Services.) Fourth, if you are committed to diligent economic/market sleuthing, then keep one ear and eye dedicated to a China-watch, the powerhouse behind world growth. Investors shouldnt ignore the yin-yang of Chinas economy (April 4, 2013) suggests that China, though facing slower growth, could still fire the engines of personal consumption as it has an undeveloped consumer market. (Never forget that the U.S. GDP expanded in the 1980s through 2007 mostly due to U.S. personal consumption, and it remains the underwhelming vehicle behind our current meager 2 percent GDP.) Fifth, central bankers assume control until they are not in control. In this newly fashioned world where central bankers rule, they seem to be willing to do anything and everything. Some central bankers should be concerned that all their efforts have not generated GDP growth sufficient to create meaningful employment. Further, there is less and less wiggle room and time to resolve other countries messes. Last weeks column (June 13), Japan cannot solve its many problems, was a case in point. Soon attention will shift back to Europe (upcoming German elections/the fate of Merkel), then back to the U.S. (as the effects of sequestration deepen later this summer and will likely be followed by permanent budget cuts), and back to the UK (where pressure rises for its exodus from the EU), etc. Sixth, Business cycles are in control, not central bankers, (June 6, 2012) considers the possibility that the central bankers will not be able to pull the rabbit out of the proverbial hat time and time again as economic cycles are ultimately in control, there are more years of deflation (economic winter) on the horizon. The cycles of winter, spring, summer and fall can be lessened or accentuated by central banker policies but not stopped. Visit with your investment adviser and consider whether you have a portfolio that can weather the unpredictable, the unpleasant and the volatile of this economy and the markets. Speak to a variety of advisers, especially those with expertise in specific asset classes. Then, chart your course.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. ETFs May Be For YouYou may want to add some exchangetraded funds (ETFs) to your portfolio once you know what they are. ETFs are kind of like mutual funds that trade like stocks. Many are index-base, permitting you to be invested instantly in the securities that make up that index. Here are the ticker symbols for a few ETFs of major indexes: S&P 500 (SPY), the Nasdaq 100 (QQQ), Total Stock Market (VTI), Dow Jones Industrial Average (DIA), Russell 2000 (IWM), iShares MSCI Japan Index (EWJ), Barclays Aggregate Bond (AGG). Often sporting low fees and tax-efficient infrequent trading, ETFs offer easy diversification. Theyre also among the least time-consuming of all investing strategies. If you want to manage some or all of your money passively, ETFs can provide significant advantages. Like stocks, ETFs can be shorted, optioned and margined. This isnt necessarily a good thing. ETFs are almost too easy, and as a result, they have been used extensively as short-term investments, the complete antithesis of index investing. John Bogle, the father of index investing, once likened ETFs to a shotgun, saying, They can be used for self-defense, or they can be used for suicide. Trading in and out of ETFs eats up any cost benefit by racking up trading costs. (Trading in and out of any stocks rapidly can also hurt your performance.) ETFs are not always great for those who dollar-cost average, investing small sums systematically to build up a portfolio. Since you invest in ETFs like stocks, through your brokerage, you pay trading commissions to do so. Thus, dollar cost averaging with small sums can be costly. Still, if you want to invest a modest sum in a broad index, you can buy a few shares of it via an ETF. Before buying any ETF, read up on it to understand exactly what its holdings and fees are. To learn more about ETFs, click over to or Cover/ETFs.aspx. You can see some ETFs (and mutual funds) weve recommended via a free trial of our Rule Your Retirement newsletter at Random InvestmentsSoon after becoming addicted to the financial channels, I began to invest in stocks beginning with the letter A because they appeared most often on the moving horizontal screen below. For several years I did much better than most funds and indexes, but lately Ive really gotten battered. Ive recently considered moving away from a vowel to one of the harder consonants, those with a Scrabble tile value above seven. Your thoughts? C.S., Patagonia, Ariz.The Fool Responds: Considering that most stock mutual funds that are managed by pros underperform the overall market, its not surprising that somewhat random stock picks can do relatively well. The Wall Street Journal famously pitted professional stock pickers against a set of stocks chosen at random (in theory by darts aimed at stock listings) and the darts did surprisingly well. When it comes to your hard-earned dollars, though, its best not to gamble so much. Many of us would do well to just invest in the broad-market indexes (such as S&P 500-based or whole-marketbased ones) that tend to beat the pros. Copy ThisIt might not be obvious to the casual observer, but at recent levels, Xerox (NYSE: XRX) stock offers one of the best values in the information technology industry. Its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio was recently 9.7, well below its five-year average of about 18. And, with its low valuation comes a hefty dividend yield, recently at 2.6 percent. Clearly, few are expecting the stock to do much over the next few years, with earnings projected to grow by 6.7 percent annually over the coming five years. But low expectations might actually turn out to be good news for investors in Xerox, as it gives the company a low hurdle to clear. Its future is promising, as Xerox has been moving away from a hardware focus and ringing up lots of long-term service contracts, many with the federal and state governments. Xerox is generating a lot of cash from its business, too. Its free cash flow yield shows a company creating 17.4 cents of cash profit for every dollar invested in it. Xerox may ultimately use its cash to pay bigger dividends, to buy back shares (increasing the size of your stake in the company for every share it takes off the table) or to reinvest in its business and maintain its lead over rivals for years to come.

K.M., Evanston, Ill.AIf you do and the Dow does crash soon, youll be well positioned to profit. But what if it just keeps rising for a long while? Youll miss out on a lot of gains. No one knows what the market will do in the short run. In the long run, it tends to go up.You should keep any money youll need within the next few years out of stocks, since a crash can happen at any time. Otherwise, its often best to remain in the market and to try to add to your holdings when it sinks. If youre not comfortable in stocks, though, sell some or all of them.Got a question for the Fool?

Then when you open your franchise stores, run them like your corporate stores to maintain some semblance of that private entrepreneurial power. Mr. Phelan remembers years ago, coming home from college for Thanksgiving break. His father Tony told him, Son, Ive been diagnosed with prostate cancer. I have two months to two years to live. Then he asked his boy, Do you want to open a restaurant? Let me think about that, Grant Phelan said to his dad. Im in college. You dont have a job, as he had lost his business in Texas to the oil bust before moving down to Naples. We dont have any money. Moms a schoolteacher. My little brothers in high school. Youre about to die. For all those reasons, Im going to say, No. Then his father laid it on him: Ive already signed the lease on a 1,500-square-foot space in the Center of Bonita Springs. Grant Phelan told his dad he was crazy. Then he decided to take a semester off of school. I thought I only had a little bit of time left to spend with him, he says. I never thought it would turn into all this. The original Pinchers Crab Shack was built on credit card debt, Grant Phelans server tips and the help of an 82-yearold carpenter. Sixteen years later, the Phelans are building a restaurant on Duval Street in Key West. They have established crab shacks in South Fort Myers, Sarasota, Naples and two more on Fort Myers Beach. Theyve signed a lease in Tampa, theyve signed another lease in Cape Coral and theyre buying property in downtown Fort Myers, amassing a total of 10 locations. And Tony Phelans feeling fine, currently vacationing on his 54-foot Sea Ray in the Bahamas. Because of Dads cancer, the banks wouldnt lend us any money, Grant Phelan says. We had to cash flow everything. We didnt have any leverage. When the big bust hit, the people who went out of business were the people in too much debt. We didnt have any debt. He advises other entrepreneurs to work hard, save their money, reinvest it into their business and pay as they go. He says just because you can get a loan doesnt mean you need a loan. And he urges business owners to have a good exit strategy: Be able to cut bait and run. But as far as franchising, he feels a franchise wouldnt make any sense for Pinchers. You cant copy us, Grant Phelan says. We have our own fish house out on Pine Island. We bring in a thousand pounds of blue crab every day and hand pick em. Were the second largest purveyor of stone crabs in the country It would be easy to franchise a smoothie or a sandwich, but its not a smart idea to franchise seafood.Proven partnershipsBrad Hobbs, BB&T distinguished professor of free enterprise at Florida Gulf Coast University, says when you buy into a franchise you buy into a business model and this lends a little less risk and little more faith about investing your life savings into your new business endeavor. He points to Subway as an example. When a franchisee buys into Subway, he gets the Subway name, the Subway reputation, Subway sandwich meats, the inside scoop on the art of sandwich making and the advertising face of Jared, Subways weight-loss inspiring spokesman. All sounds good for the franchisee, but what about the franchiser? When you franchise out your business, youre selling your brand to somebody who you really dont know. You lose control over the management of that store at some level, Mr. Hobbs says. But there is a definite relationship between risk and return If your franchise is successful, you stand to make gobs of money. Mr. Hobbs agrees with the Phelans on the simplicity of product. The simpler the product is, the easier it is to mass produce, he says. The more complex, the more difficult to mass produce and keep control over quality. Comparing corporations to corporations with franchises, Mr. Hobbs does not see one to be more economically sound than the other. He encourages business owners to look at their track record, the consistency of their product, the consistency of their consumer response and question if their business model would be something easy to duplicate before acting on any franchising flings.Falling into franchisingRib City President Craig Peden says his franchise business fell in his lap. Two gentlemen ate at his barbecue restaurant in Cape Coral, called him up and said they wanted buy into Rib City and open a franchise in Colorado. Mr. Peden turned to his business partner, his father Paul. We might have fallen into (a franchising operation) a couple years down the road but it kind of forced our hand when we got that phone call, Craig Peden says. My father and I were like, Sure. A franchise might be a possibility. Lets figure out what that means. So we did kind of fall into it. Id like to say it was planned, but not really. The first time Craig Peden opened up a Rib City franchise, he feared the unknown. He knew how to be a private business owner, but this time someone else was investing roughly $400,000 into his concept. As a franchiser, how much control could he exert? Then he saw it: Every single time the doors open up, the owner looks like a deer in headlights, says Mr. Peden, which means he gets to run the show, just until the franchise finds its footing, because franchisees tend to feel overwhelmed in the beginning. This exchange appeases that initial franchiser worry of losing control. Ive opened every single franchise weve ever done, Mr. Peden says. I hand them the keys when its up and running. Mr. Peden no longer feels afraid of franchising. He says he could open up a new one in his sleep. Rib City now has 17 franchise locations across Washington, Utah, Colorado, Illinois, Missouri, Ohio, Virginia and Tennessee. And Mr. Peden says thats the obvious benefit of franchising your business: Having multiple locations in multiple states that all pay you a certain percentage of their monthly gross for buying into your concept. In order to counter that feeling of loss of control, Mr. Peden tries to maintain something of a corporate-owned relationship with his franchised locations. My franchise stores call me like my corporate stores do, he says. The restaurant business seems to run in Peden blood, as the family also owns The Veranda in downtown Fort Myers. Craig Peden started working there when he was 8 or 9 years old. Now his teenage son washes dishes there. Comparing his barbecue franchise to his Southern restaurant, he says, If you wanted to build a Veranda, you would have to invest $3 million or $4 million and it would never be the same, because its a historic house that lends bygone charm. Aye, theres the rub of the franchise. If you find yourself in that quandry To franchise or not to franchise? remember that your product is your answer.

C23 Naplesbased captains have ties to Man of Steel THE OCEAN WAS SO ROUGH THAT SOME MEMBERS OF THE FILM CREW WERE puking over the side of the boat as the vessel creaked and rocked precariously, 30-foot-high waves flooding the deck. And Capt. Lance Julian was happy, because thats what the script and the director had called for. The scene occurs fairly early in the 143-minute Man of Steel, the newest Superman movie, which opened June 14. Spoiler Alert: Clark Kent, who has not yet grown into the superhero we know as Superman, is wandering around the country, drifting from job to job. In the above scene, hes working on a crabbing boat. Theyre trapped in a bad storm, and the ships crew is scurrying about. Then the captain receives a distress call: A nearby oil rig is in trouble. And suddenly, Clark Kent is at the rig, bare-chested and walking through fire to rescue the men trapped inside. Capt. Lance Julian and his son, Capt.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS Single fathers: a more perfect partnerWith Fathers Day just behind us, I have men with children on my mind. I seem to be sitting in the middle of a baby storm, a ferocious procreating thats been raging for several years now. I just had my 33rd birthday (God help me), so I think its a function of the age. Most of my friends are already on their second babies. And no matter what I may think of their husbands fallible men, all as soon as you stick an infant in their arms my stony heart melts. Without reason and without fail, these fathers become the most attractive men on the planet. But why? They are average suburban males. They drive domestic SUVs and wear polo shirts to work; on the weekends they drink microbrews and grill hunks of meat. There is nothing surprising about them. And yet: If they werent already married to my best friends, Id swoop in on them in a hot minute. Dont get me wrong, I know the appeal is driven by biology. Theres a complicated system of hormonal signals pumping through my brain, as intoxicating and trouble-making as grain alcohol. My attraction is irrational but inescapable. And as it turns out, Im not alone. According to a study out of the University of Richmond and cited in the British newspaper The Daily Mail, single fathers are 30 percent more likely to find a new long-term partner than men without children. My single girlfriends say they would be thrilled to date a single dad and, personally speaking, Ive never known a man to be so lovely as when hes doctoring a scraped knee or cradling a fussy toddler. Perhaps thats because such moments are so rare. Child rearing is by nature mother-centric; women are the bestowers of kisses and soothing caresses. We have learned to hand out sweetness indiscriminately. Male love is gruffer, more restrained. But to see a man with a child is to know that he is capable of great tenderness. Which is maybe why single fathers dont stay single long. Memoirist and television writer Tracy McMillan wrote a brilliant piece several years ago titled Why Youre Not Married. Aimed at the sort of women who are forever perplexed at their single status, the article points out some hard truths. A good wife, Ms. McMillan says, even a halfway decent one, does not spend most of her day thinking about herself. She has too much s**t to do, especially after having kids. Once children come into a persons life, Ms. McMillan argues, there is no room for selfishness. This is why you see a lot of celebrity women getting husbands after they adopt After a year or two of thinking about someone other than herself, suddenly Brad Pitt or Harrison Ford comes along and decides to significantly other her. The same can be said for men. Nothing strips a man to his most unselfish core like children. And nothing makes a man more appealing than a generous, giving heart. It should be no surprise, then, that women are drawn to single fathers. Give us a man with a baby any day. Transform your body without... diet, exercise or surgery!

PAGE 44 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 20-26, 2013 Julian says of his role in the production of a movie. His job involves location scouting, finding the right equipment and crew. And then, he says, When they get into a shooting period, Ill be standing out there with the director and the first AD and the other team members the camera, lighting, sound and special-effects people making sure that our part of the actual filmmaking takes place correctly. His son prefers to stay at home in Naples with his family. But the two, he says, are equal partners, and when hes on location he stays in constant contact with him via the Internet, bouncing ideas off of him. For the Man of Steel scenes, the Julians were working with a budget of just under $3 million. Capt. Julian found a vessel in Seattle and had it cleaned up in Vancouver. While there, he and his crew did all-day rehearsals. When they wanted to shoot our part in the water, he says, we had to go around on the outside of Vancouver Island, so we could get severe weather. There was a water safety backup boat, out of sight of the cameras, he says. And the 30-foot seas had some of the filming crew a little ill, he confesses. Its his job to have the right piece of equipment, the right boat, the right ship crew, the right technical crew. With a big fancy film, its a situation where you have to be efficient, you have to be safe, and you have to get the shot. One morning he says, We did a weather call. We felt it was too bad to be out there. So the production company shot other scenes that day, on land. You have to use your judgment to ensure people are still safe, he says. Then you have the equipment and the manpower to shoot the next day. Though the on-board shots took four days, they were the result of months of careful planning and negotiations. Capt. Julian not only knows his oceans, but he also knows a bit about moviemaking magic, too. The director wanted a lot of water on the deck, he says. To do that, they had to weigh the boat down, so it rode lower in the water. The waves also had some manmade assistance, with additional water being pumped onto the deck. It made it look a lot wetter on deck than she wouldve normally been; thats what the director wanted to happen.All in the familyThe elder Capt. Julian is a fourth-generation mariner. His father, grandfather and great-grandfather were all sea captains in New Zealand, his native country. I guess its like you dont have an option, he says. When I look at my son Harry; he followed on in the same footsteps. Now I have a grandson called Lance. That poor little fellow (though hes just 4 years old) doesnt have an option. Capt. Julian and his wife, Sharon, were running a tug and barge company in Hawaii in the 1980s when he pitched to Waterworld for the towing, diving and salvage work. He won the job, and though critics skewered the movie, it opened a new world of opportunity for Capt. Julian. Over the years, Maritime Team International has worked on films including Titanic, Quantum of Solace, Fools Gold, City of Angels, The Thin Red Line, Hangover Part II, Armistad, The Thomas Crown Affair and U-571. Titanic, he says, is one of the cruelest stories on the water that theres ever been, with so many people lost. It hit him emotionally, he says, having a family history of being at sea. And here I am standing on the deck of the Titanic, when were tilting and sinking the vessel. The bands playing. You realize youre going home tonight or tomorrow morning, but so many people didnt in the real world. You get quite emotional about that.Traveling the worldThe company has also worked on nine seasons of the TV reality show Survivor. We put together all the water scenes. Were there to make sure the filming crew can all move around correctly. We support the medical team, executive producer Mark Burnett, the lighting crew, so they can be filming the actual contestants. I can assure you, Im quite happy not to be a contender, on the TV show, he says. I learned after the first season that I was on the right side of the camera. Capt. Julian has traveled the world, scouting locations and working with film crews on oceans, rivers and seas. Are there any waters he hasnt traveled? Id like to go to either the Antarctic or the Arctic I wouldnt mind which one, he says. I would love to go on a shoot (to one or the other.) I havent done ice scenes, and Id love to be around an iceberg. But he loves his adopted home of Naples, where the Julians own and operate a boat rental business called Pure Naples. They provide vessels for sightseeing, dolphin watching and sunset cruises, and for deep sea, calm bay, back bay and sunset fishing trips. Hes especially proud of his new jetboat, ODIN, which hes used as a camera boat on shoots. Sharon Julian, who works on the administrative end of things, goes on every shoot with him. The couple are always happy to call it a wrap and come home to Naples, the captain says. Now theyre packing for another trip. Because he signs confidentiality agreements, all he can say is that hes going to Hong Kong and Malaysia to shoot an asyet-untitled Michael Mann movie. Weve been very fortunate, he says. We sometimes pinch ourselves when were up in the plane, flying to our next location: My, how fortunate are we? SUPERMENFrom page A1 Lance and Harry Julian worked the water scenes in the Warner Bros. movie Man of Steel.WARNER BROS. AND PROVIDED IMAGES FROM MARINE TEAM INTERNATIONAL Is it worth $10? NoIt was cause for excitement when it was announced Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight trilogy) would be involved in the development of the Superman reboot Man of Steel. Conversely, it was cause for dread when Zack Snyder came on as the director, specifically because Snyder, though masterful with action sequences (, Watchmen), often struggles to tell a cohesive story. Unfortunately, Snyder still hasnt figured it out. Though Nolan retained a producer credit and his Dark Knight scribe David S. Goyer wrote Man of Steel, Snyders film is a loud, relentless assault on the eyes and ears. Aspiring to only slam-bang action when themes of morality, compassion and love are in play but not developed is an injustice to both the storys comic book origins and the moviegoer who deserves more. Although the costumes, production design and visual effects are strong, the picture has far too much surplus for its own good. What could have been essential character development with a young Clark Kent (Cooper Tymberline (age 9) and Dylan Sprayberry (age 13)) and his parents (Kevin Costner and Diane Lane) plays like an ill-fitted, forced excuse for action set in Kansas. Daily Planet editor Perry White (Laurence Fishburne) serves no function, and Lois Lane (Amy Adams) is nothing more than an unnecessary accessory. Theyre here because theyre supposed to be here, not because they need to be here, and theres a huge difference between the two. Worse, these extra characters bloat the movie to 143 minutes. The core story is Clark/Superman (Henry Cavill), after being sent to earth by his father (Russell Crowe) prior to the destruction of their home planet of Krypton, discovering that surviving Kryptonian General Zod (Michael Shannon) is planning to wipe out mankind and restart Krypton. Clark, having lived with humans for 33 years and believing in their capacity for good, must stop Zod. To his credit, Snyder apparently used every cent of the $225 million budget, as the action scenes are fast and effective. Highlights include saving Lois from a fall (of course), a knock down, drag-out fight with Zod and Faora-Ul (Antje Traue) in a small town, and the conclusion, which REVIEW Man of SteelSEE HUDAK, C18 Capt.

Love that Dress June Collection Event What do you do when the court of public opinion writes off your movie before anyone has seen it? Such is the dilemma facing director Marc Forster (Monsters Ball) and his latest film, World War Z, a zombie apocalypse action thriller starring Brad Pitt thats gotten nothing but bad publicity since shooting began in July 2011. It started with news that Mr. Forster and Mr. Pitt were feuding on the set, to the point where they werent speaking. Reports alleged the directors notes for the star were given via a third party because the director and actor couldnt communicate. A lot of the stories were inaccurate, Mr. Forster said during a recent press day at the Mandarin Oriental in Miami. I would read these things about Brad and I not talking and have no idea what theyre based on, so I asked him, Where does this come from? and hed say, Dont worry, just focus on the movie. Obviously hes used to that kind of press, but Im not. Then, to add fuel to the fire, the release date was pushed from December 2012 to June 2013 after the original ending was scrapped. Prometheus writer Damon Lindelof, and later Drew Goddard (both of whom worked on Lost), were called in to rewrite the ending, and reshoots were completed in the fall of 2012. Heres what happened: The script was unfinished heading into production. The original ending, which was to be a largescale action sequence set in Russia, was shot, but it didnt come together in editing and ended the movie abruptly. It was so bad that Mr. Pitt (who is also a producer here), Mr. Forster and Paramount exec Marc Evans ordered seven weeks of production to shoot an additional 30-40 minutes worth of film, which allegedly pushed the budget to $200 million. The new ending, which picks up after a riveting plane crash and Mr. Forster describes as having a haunted house vibe, was designed to create a different form of tension than what viewers feel while watching the large-scale action sequences. For a lot of movies, this is standard, said Mr. Forster, who also directed Quantum of Solace, Finding Neverland and The Kite Runner. Someone like Woody Allen has two weeks scheduled in his budget for reshoots. The Dark Knight had reshoots. This is something everybody does. The core of the story follows Mr. Pitts character, Gerry Lane, as he travels the world searching for a cure to the virus thats turning people into zombies. This is completely different from the book on which the movie is based, World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, by Max Brooks (son of Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft). The book doesnt have the regular three-act structure or a main character in that its 54 different stories being told about how to survive the war, Mr. Forster said. I thought it was more important to create a movie that works on its own as a companion piece to the book than it would be to try to be loyal to the book and create a movie that doesnt work. Controversy aside, Mr. Forster fancies himself a fan of zombie stories like The Walking Dead, though he hesitates to call World War Z a zombie movie. For me it exceeds the zombie genre and is an end-of-the-world apocalyptic kind of film, he said. To that end, he didnt think excess violence and gore were necessary, hence the PG-13 rating. Sometimes gore can be a cheap trick, he said, adding he thought it would be more interesting to create and sustain intensity throughout the film. As for the zombies themselves, which are bigger/faster/stronger than the plodding zombies were used to, he was determined to do something unique. I had to create my own zombies, he said. The first image that came to me was an ant hill with ants moving on top of each other. So when you see them climbing the wall in Jerusalem, thats what its born out of its sort of a tsunami of zombies. Its something I havent seen before, and its so powerful and overwhelming that you feel like its the end of the world and you cant beat them. Now if only he could get people to ignore the bad press and flock to theaters the same way. World War Z is in theaters Friday, June 21.

Am I going to miss this? Parts of it. I love working with the artists. I love opening the artwork when it gets here; its like Christmas. I love getting it installed and deciding where it will go and seeing it when its up on the wall. And Ive liked working with the students at Edison As much as this is a gallery for the community, its our students that use it first. With exhibits that would be just as much at home in SoHo or Tribeca, the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery is far from what youd expect to find at a small college in a small Florida town. When Mr. Bishop arrived in 1999, he had a vision for the gallery. I wanted to bring the gallery back to the level of expertise that (former director) Jay Williams had brought it to. But it hadnt been there for several years, he says. He wanted to bring shows that reached beyond the region shows at the national and international level, showcasing artists from mid-career to significant contributors, he says. And he has succeeded. Thats one of the real gifts of this gallery, he says. The college has given this community a venue for what we dont get to see (elsewhere locally) We need the outside influences, to see whats going on elsewhere, what other people are thinking. Mr. Bishop developed a series of exhibitions on John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg and Merce Cunningham the giants of the 20th century, as he says for the gallery. The threepart series consisted of works by Mr. Cage and Mr. Rauschenberg and pieces from the archives of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company (including Mr. Cunninghams diagrams for performances, artwork created by artists around the world to benefit the dance company, and costumes designed by Mr. Rauschenberg for the company). He developed an exhibition with Christo and Jeanne-Claude, who lectured at the gallery. The lecture was the very first one about the Gates Project in Central Park, after Mayor Bloomberg had just approved it. Right here in Fort Myers, Mr. Bishop marvels. Obviously great timing. He also did four shows with the Martin Z. Margulies Collection. Thats huge; thats one of the best in America, he says of the Miami collection. His favorite of the four shows, which he curated, was New Century New Painting. It included work by Karen Davie, Chris Ofili, Tal R, Jonathan Meese and Ulf Puder, among others. That was cutting-edge painting for a new century, he says. Mr. Bishop also developed or curated six shows of Mr. Rauschenbergs works. He fondly remembers Robert Rauschenberg, Artist-Citizen, a collection of posters made over the decades, including the first Earth Day poster. It showed his generosity to the planet; he cared about things all around the planet. A backstory: Bob would never let me thank him. Every single exhibit, I tried to thank him for showing at the gallery, but he thanked me every time, for giving him the opportunity to show his work, though we were the ones indebted to him. He recalls watching the artist go through the poster exhibit: There were maybe 80 posters in the show. It was as if he were walking through his life. At the end, when he got back around, he said, Thank you again, and this time, I felt like we had really done something for him. It just let him ruminate. In 2004, Mr. Bishop was instrumental in getting the name of the gallery changed to the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery. I think it was important for the community (to rename it), he says. Bob has been such a key figure in this community and the art world, and he did so much for the gallery. Every single show that we did with Bob, he gave us posters or a limited edition print that we could sell, all of which would go to benefit our programs. In the back of my mind, this was Bobs home. It was Bobs home, our Bob. When Mr. Rauschenberg died in 2008, Mr. Bishop developed the first of four international memorials to the acclaimed artist. At 63, Mr. Bishop feels its time to move on. He already has plans. One of the first things Im going to do is upgrade my camera and telephoto lens and get a spotting scope, and spend a lot of time in the marshes and preserves of Southwest Florida, photographing birds. And Im going to paint my own paintings. Im just going to be enjoying myself. Ive had a great time here, he concludes about his tenure at Edison State College. I feel like Ive really done a lot. Now hes ready to let the next person have some fun. BISHOPFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOSRon Bishop with Robert Rauschenberg Katherine Hinds Curator, The Martin Z. Margulies Collection(He) embodies everything that we feel is important in terms of sharing the collection: his focus on education, and his collaborative spirit and his understanding of what a collection is and how it operates and how collectors are, in spirit, curators, themselves... He just was really deeply interested in each and every work of art. Lawrence Voytek Artist, fabricator for Mr. Rauschenberg for 30 yearsRons vision of what a gallery can do for the community was very important. Bob appreciated his knowledge and determination in trying to educate a community. His making this (gallery) the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery was brilliant and shall live on. Jack OBrien Curator, The Naples Art AssociationRon gave everyone in Southwest Florida the opportunity to see in-depth examinations of artists I especially appreciate Rons willingness to share his time and expertise He has been a real asset to the college and the art community. Kat EppleGrammy Award-winning musician; friend of the late Mr. RauschenbergRon Bishop was instrumental in cultivating the connection between Bob Rauschenberg and Edison State College. Changing the gallery name to the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery is a lasting reminder of the legendary artists connection to Southwest Florida, and Ron made that happen. Hollis JeffcoatArtist, SanibelRon made an oasis of fine arts. And its not as though he had one kind of bent: This is what I like, so Ill show only this. He showed the entire community what fine art could be, and that is not an easy thing to do. I admire him for that, enormously. The other thing is, for all this time, weve been deprived of amazing paintings, because he is an excellent painter. So the good news is, well get to see some of his paintings. That will be a real treat.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Dont be put off by the surprising turn in the way your project is developing. Youve invested enough time in it to know how to make all the necessary adjustments. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The work week goes smoothly for the most part. But a weekend visit to a place in your past could hold surprises for your future, especially where romance is involved. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A sudden attack of shyness for the usually loquacious Lion could be a sign that deep down youre not sure enough about what (or whom) you had planned to talk up in public. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Deal with that job-related problem on-site -that is, at the workplace. Avoid taking it home, where it can spoil those important personal plans youve made. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Its a good time to let those favorable comments about your business dealings be known to those in a position to be helpful. Dont hide your light; let it shine. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Avoid added pressure to finish a project on deadline by steering clear of distractions. To put it somewhat poetically: Time for fun -when your tasks are done. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You might be uneasy about an offer from a longtime colleague. But before you reject it, study it. You might be surprised at what it actually contains.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Let go of that Piscean pride long enough to allow someone to help you with a surprising development. That could make it easier for you to adjust to the change. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Before you adventurous Arians charge right into those new projects, take a little time to learn where youll be going so you can avoid getting lost before you get there. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your time is devoted to career demands through much of the week. But Venus, who rules your sign, might be planning how (and with whom) youll spend your weekend.

FLORIDA WEEKLYC14 WEEK OF JUNE 20-26, 2013 Chairs that defy traditional stylesSome old chairs have very strange added parts that can confuse todays collectors. A Windsor chair from the 18th century might be made with an added piece at the end of the arm because it is a writing arm Windsor. There can be a drawer beneath the seat of a Shaker sewing chair. Many types of chairs were made into rocking chairs with the addition of pieces of curved wood or a bouncy platform with springs. A chair with paddle-like arms and a rectangular wooden piece attached to the back at an angle is known as a cockfighting chair. It was thought the user sat facing the back of the chair to see the fight, but now it is believed that the wooden piece was meant to hold a book and that the chair is a reading chair once used in libraries. A similar chair was made by the Roycroft Colony in East Aurora, N.Y., in about 1905. It had a narrow ledge at the top of the chair back. The user sat facing the back and straddling the chair, with arms leaning on the leathercovered wooden ledge. It is a meditation chair. There is a modern group at the Roycroft Colony today that is interested in art and meditation. Q: My 1910 telephone is in excellent shape. A label on it reads, Property of the American Bell Telephone Co. What is the phone worth? A: By 1910, telephones were being manufactured as both wall phones and upright candlestick phones and you dont tell us what yours looks like. Some antique phones sell for under $100 and some for thousands. American Bell Telephone Co. was formed in 1880 and acquired a controlling interest in Western Electric Co. in 1881. Western Electric then became the manufacturer of American Bell Telephone Co. phones. In 1899, American Bell was acquired by American Telephone & Telegraph Co., which had been an American Bell subsidiary. Telephones the age of yours sell for about $100 to $200, depending on style and condition. Q: I have some Olin Russum Pottery and would like to know something about it. Is it collectible? A: Olin Lansing Russum Jr. (19181998), known as Russ, was a potter and sculptor who lived and worked in Maryland. In 1951 he and his wife, Jean, built a studio in a converted barn near Gunpowder Falls. Russ made dishes, sculptures and watercolors, but is best known for his tile and bas-relief murals. His murals are in several buildings in the Baltimore area, and some of his work is in museum collections. He also taught a ceramics workshop at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Jean was a woodworker who made sculptures and furniture. They worked together on some projects KOVEL: ANTIQUES

Their work has been sold in several recent auctions and can be found in shops. Q: My pottery stein holds a halfliter. Its in the shape of a child wearing a monks hooded habit. Hes holding a couple of radishes or turnips in his left hand and what appears to be a book in his right. His head, the steins lid, has a pewter rim. Down the front of the childs clothing theres a long bib with the words Gruss aus Munchen. The only mark on the bottom is 880. What is the stein worth? A: You have a Munich Child character stein. The bib down his front is a scapular, a traditional part of a monks garb, and the German phrase on the front can be translated roughly as Regards from Munich. The design is based on the German citys coat of arms. Munich Child mugs, which can be in the traditional stein shape or figural, like yours, were first made in the last half of the 19th century. A mug like yours sold in 2011 for $334. Q: I still have the portable Brother typewriter my father bought for me 40 years ago. I have kept it stored in its original carrying case and it still works. I wonder what its worth. A: With few exceptions, only very early typewriters those made and marketed in the late 1800s sell for much money. Brother Industries, a Japanese corporation that dates back to 1908, still is in business today manufacturing printers, fax machines and other office and industrial equipment. Portable electric typewriters like yours dont excite collectors, but you might be able to sell it online for up to $20. Tip: When looking up a pewter mark, dont just check pewter books. Try looking at a list of American silversmiths and silver-plate makers. Many of these people worked with all three types of metal.

The strange back on this Roycroft chair can be explained by its name, meditation chair. It sold for $1,300 at a Rago Auction in Vineland, N.J., in March 2013. A similar chair sold for $3,000 a few years ago. NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 20-26, 2013 C15


CONTRACT BRIDGEThe imperfect endplayBY STEVE BECKERA declarer who tries to eliminate the element of luck on every deal does not always find the adverse cards distributed exactly the way hed like them to be. For example, take this case where South is in four hearts and West leads the king of spades. Declarer sees at once that he might lose a spade and three clubs and go down one if West has the ace of clubs. But having been to the wars before, he sees the possibility of an endplay against West to nullify an unfavorable location of the club ace. So after he takes the king of spades with the ace, he plays the K-Q of trumps, hoping to find them divided 2-2. In that case, he would next cash the A-K of diamonds and ruff a diamond before putting West on lead with a spade to force a losing return. When East turns up with three trumps instead of two, declarer remains unfazed, as this development provides no reason for him to alter his initial plan. He simply stops drawing trumps for the moment, cashes the A-K of diamonds and ruffs a diamond, as originally planned, and then exits with a spade, also as originally planned. West unhappily finds himself on lead and must hand South the contract. If he returns a spade or a diamond, declarer ruffs with dummys jack of trumps while disposing of a club loser from his hand. And if West returns a club instead, he makes declarers king a trick. This method of play where declarer executes an endplay while one opponent still possesses one or more trumps is called a partial elimination. When it works, though, it is just as effective as a total elimination play. Call (239) 649-2275 for Reservations Naples Princess Naples P rin cess The Best Way to Experience Naples from the Water.

If youre hoping this will pay respectful homage to prior Superman movies, think again. This is a total reboot, and although youll see signs for Smallville and note that a truck has a LexCorp logo, dont expect much else taken directly from the Christopher Reeve movies or Bryan Singers 2006 misfire, Superman Returns. Also, John Williams memorable score has been replaced by Hans Zimmers overbearing orchestrations, and for those who care, Im told the story strays pretty far from its comic book origins. And no, theres no kneel before Zod either. Man of Steel didnt have to include these elements, but its overall ineffectiveness leads us to think of what it couldve done to be better. One more thing: Dont stay for the end credits. Though its long been speculated that Man of Steel is Warner Bros. and DC Comics first step toward a Justice League movie (which would include Batman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman), a la Marvels The Avengers, there is no indication of it here.

Closed 4th of July SALE FILM CAPSULESThis Is The End 1/2 (Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jay Baruchel) Actors Rogen, Franco and their friends play versions of themselves in this end-of-the-world comedy set at Francos house. Its very funny (and raunchy), but its also one-dimensional and gets old fast. Rated R.The Internship (Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, Rose Byrne) Two middle-aged failed watch salesman (Vaughn and Wilson) talk their way into an internship at Google, though they know nothing about technology. Its amusing in spurts and fun to see the real Google campus, but it goes through too many dry spells and is woefully predictable. Rated PG-13.The Purge (Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Rhys Wakefield) In 2022, Americans are free to commit any crime they want during a 12-hour period. Trouble abounds when a family of four (led by Hawke and Headey) must fight off intruders. Its an interesting idea, but the execution is little more than typical home invasion silliness. Rated R. The Reluctant Fundamentalist 1/2 (Riz Ahmed, Liev Schreiber, Kate Hudson) Pakistani-born and Princetoneducated Changez (Ahmed) has success in New York City, but racial profiling after 9/11 makes it hard to live in America. Strong performances and a nicely crafted story from director Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding) make this a must-see. Rated R.Fast & Furious 6 1/2 (Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Luke Evans) Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) convinces Dom (Diesel) and Brian (Walker) to help him track a quick-strike rogue military bad guy (Evans). There are some notable lulls, but the action is exciting and its a worthy installment for the franchise. Rated PG-13.The Hangover Part III 1/2 (Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong) A gangster (John Goodman) forces the Wolfpack to find Mr. Chow (Jeong). An unfunny and unnecessary third wheel that proves writer/director Todd Phillips has long since run out of ideas for these characters. Rated R.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous reviews: Bellissimo Ristorante, Bay Crossings Center, 26251 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 405-8957 A meal at Bellissimo should not be a hasty affair; one should slow down and savor the food and conversation. Allow the restaurants villa-style decor to transport you far from its run-ofthe-mill plaza setting. If you love the components of Italian cooking but are tired of the same-old picattas and parmigianas, Bellissimo is worth adding to your rotation for innovations such as sole Francese or snapper puttanesca. Savor the delicate house-made cannelloni stuffed with a mixture of veal, beef and chicken that surprisingly doesnt hit the stomach like a ton of bricks. Another surprise came with veal medallions served with fresh radicchio, arugula and endive instead of a heavy starch. Oddly, though, the star ingredient was buried under a pile of greens just like the beef carpaccio we had as an appetizer. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2013The Chapel Grill, 811 Seventh Ave. S., Naples; 206-4310 Casual yet stylish, this restaurant in the 65-year-old former First Baptist Church is packing the pews, so to speak, with a wide-ranging menu that manages to put a new spin on some very familiar dishes. The calamari, for instance, is strewn with chorizo sausage and tempura-fried julienned carrots. Marinara would be too mundane for such a concoction, so the chef dreamed up a delicious mango-rum sauce that complements the calamari nicely. A single duck-filled spring roll seemed chintzy for $11.80, but it was nonetheless delicious. Seafood or steak, Chapel Grill seems blessed for success. A New York strip was perfectly grilled to mediumrare yet achieved a crusty exterior that most home grillers would envy. Red rock cod Florentine was a hefty fillet with thick flakes of moist white meat within its crisp oven-baked Parmesan crust. Inventive cocktails a vodka gimlet with balsamic-laced strawberries and fresh basil, and a bourbon highball spiked with The Kings Ginger liqueur and a kiss of cloves are sinfully indulgent. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2012Komoon Thai Sushi and Ceviche, 1575 Pine Ridg e Road; 596-9991 If I lived closer to Komoon, I might never cook again. The unlikely menu offers a wealth of options, all done well. The sushi is artfully created from a list of possibilities that range from straight-up sashimi and sushi to a flashy green dragon roll, starring shrimp and avocado. A mixed seafood ceviche filled with white fish, shrimp, calamari, clams and red onion had a palate-pleasing balance of hot spice and cool seafood. From the cooked Japanese menu, the beef yaki soba was dead on, and the Kiss Me with tofu revealed its Thai roots with its gingery garlic sauce. Servers were efficient and hospitable; the room is cozy and stylish. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2012 Seasons 52, 8930 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 594-8852 This small chain has a lot going for it. Start with the regularly changing menu that features seasonal ingredients at their peak of flavor in dishes that forswear indulgence without sacrificing flavor (nothing contains more than 475 calories). Consider the globespanning wine list, which includes more than 100 selections (52 or more by the glass). Start with one of the flatbreads, cracker-thin pizzas carpeted with precisely arranged toppings and baked in a super-hot brick oven. The menu achieves a good balance of seafood and meats. An artichoke-stuffed shrimp dish was succulent and redolent of sage, while wood-grilled T-bone lamb chops were perfectly cooked and remarkably tender. Save room for dessert without guilt: Seasons 52s Mini Indulgences tiny treats such as red velvet cake and pumpkin mousse served in shot glasses are the perfect way to end a meal without going over the edge. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2011Texas Tonys BBQ Shack, 4519 Tamiami Trail E., Naples; 732-8392 A side venture of the Phelan family, owners of the locally grown Pinchers Crab Shacks, Texas Tonys is plastered with Lone Star State flags, horseshoes and longhorn antlers. Aside from a few fixable flaws, Texas Tonys could serve as a successful new chain concept. The loaded chopped pork nachos did not showcase the meat as well as it should have, and the boom boom shrimp lost their batter in a sea of spicy cream sauce. But the spice-rubbed baby back ribs had a good, charry bark along the edges, while the meat remained incredibly tender and had the all-important pink smoke ring. A quarter chicken was super-moist, and the meat slipped easily off the bone. Its darkly varnished skin was visible evidence of the restaurants smoker, which uses orangewood a subtle alternative to the stronger hickory or oak. The star of the meal was the Texan, a huge sandwich of super-tender brisket, cole slaw, pickles, onions and barbecue sauce served on Texas toast. Full bar.

Reservations Recommended NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 20-26, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C23 A decade on, Chops still delivers thrill of the grillDuring the Southwest Florida building boom, slick and sophisticated places like Roys, Traders Caf and Chops City Grill swept into heretofore sleepy Bonita Springs, bringing civilized dining and sexy food to a culinary desert and blazing a trail for current favorites such as A Table Apart, Wylds Caf and Angelinas Ristorante. Traders is long gone (though its original Sanibel Island location remains), but Chops apparently is here to stay at The Brooks Grand Plaza. More than a decade after my memorable first visit, and as the economy struggles to recover from the inevitable bust that follows boom, Chops still delivers dazzling food and draws diners willing to pay luxury prices for it. On a Wednesday evening in offseason, the sprawling 300-seat restaurant went from quiet to fairly busy during prime time. Giant, sizzling steaks streamed out of the open kitchen to parties of business people and couples who ordered double-digit apps as well as $50 hunks of beef as if the recession were a childhood memory. Its still boom time at Chops. The dining room itself also appears untouched by time. Through the massive wooden front door, you step into a space with lush lavender walls, gleaming copper columns and polished cherry wood. The place still shouts bull market from the get-go. Pendant lights spotlight white-covered banquettes, booths and tables under the curlicue platform ceiling. The Asian-accented menu remains focused on grilled prime steaks and other meats, though Chops has never given seafood short shrift. The 300-bottle wine list emphasizes reds but includes a good range of tastes, regions and value, and a summer promotion offers 50 percent off bottles priced $50-$150. Chops touts a summer menu on its website, though its not clear whats different about it. The prices arent listed online, and if you assume that summer means price cuts for the locals, you are in for some sticker shock. I did some research and found that most upscale steakhouses in the area dont advertise their prices online. Is it a case of if you have to ask, this might not be the place for you? One might reasonably question why a 22-ounce dry-aged bone-in ribeye costs $52.50, for example. But look around and youll find comparable pricing at, say, Cloydes ($46) and The Grill at The Ritz-Carlton in Naples ($52) and at Smith & Wollensky on Miami Beach ($51 for a 24-ounce cut). Add a peppercorn crust or a pan sauce and your tab goes up another couple of bucks. Really? They cant afford to throw in a dab of barnaise for free? Ill take another sip of my artisanal vodka and try to swallow my indignation. Chops has always been at the top of its game when it comes to the bar program. The fruity martinis have been augmented by a list of gins and vodkas by small American craft distillers offered in highballs, rocks and martinis. I savored the subtle floral and honey notes of Comb vodka ($10.90 on the rocks) from Port Chester, N.Y., while my dinner companion found equal satisfaction in the Silver Tip America gin martini ($9.90), a piney, peppery product of northwest Montana. While we pondered the pleasures of well-made spirits, we munched on good bread and butter f ollowed by appetizers of roasted beet salad ($12.90) and oysters Chopafella ($14.50). The salad plate was a gorgeous rainbow of colors and flavors, with a mix of red, golden and candy-stripe beets complemented by orange segments, Humboldt Fog chevre and pistachios. A dressing of citrus-infused oil and aged balsamic flecked with shreds of fresh basil pulled it all together. Three oysters isnt much for the price, but these plump shellfish were loaded with tasty toppings: garlic cream, crabmeat, zesty sausage, spinach and smoked gouda. Im just as happy tossing back raw oysters, but I can accommodate additions as delicious as these on occasion. Obviously, a steak was in order and theres no shortage of cuts, portions and toppings. From a 7-ounce filet ($31.50) to a 24-ounce porterhouse ($61.50) there is something for every steak lover even a choice of wetor dry-aged beef. Open-air dry aging is preferable because it reduces water content while microbes and enzymes act upon the meat to help break down the connective tissue, both of which enhance flavor. My choice: the aforementioned ribeye with blackberry-Cabernet sauce ($2). Onion rings and one side dish are included, and I highly recommend the corn crme brulee, one of the most palatable ways anyone has ever disguised a vegetable. So sweet, so creamy, so decadent. Note: Theres an extra $2 charge for this particular side. The nearly 2-inch-thick ribeye was flawlessly grilled (I overheard a manager say they actually use a 700-degree broiler) to create a crisp, bronze crust while sealing juices in the deep red medium-rare interior. With its deeply beefy flavor, this is about as good as steak gets. The fruity sauce was good, but a steak this good needs no embellishment other than salt and pepper. My companion ordered a pan-seared black grouper ($32.50) with wild mushroom risotto and screaming hot rock shrimp sauce. Screaming hot it was not, but the rich sauce had a spicy, garlicky New Orleans vibe going on, and the shrimp added a contrasting note of sweetness. The grouper was perfectly cooked and fresh tasting, but with such a blanket of sauce it was difficult to appreciate on its own. Desserts are made in house, but other than the cheese plate theyre mostly the usual suspects: crme brulee, cheesecake, chocolate cake. The melting apple pie ($8.50) was a warmly comforting take on the Dutch crumble version. More interesting was a flight of housemade gelatos orange-pineapple, pomegranate and passion fruit in miniature cones ($6.50). They were quickly dispatched. Service throughout was fine, although our waitress was a bit giggly and didnt go beyond routine order-taking. Chops prices might occupy the same territory as The Ritz-Carlton, but theres no comparison to the polished service of the iconic hotel. Culinary Concepts, which also owns Pazzo! Italian Caf, Yabba Island Grill and another Chops in Naples, has been a force in the local restaurant industry since 1995. Clearly, it is here to stay, through high times and low.
