A famly of elephants at The National Elephant Center in Fellsmere.TUCKED AWAY IN RURAL FELLSMERE, Fla., on a 225-acre parcel of land off an unpaved road, birds soar and swoop over grassy knolls dotted with palm trees. From inside this slice of Indian River County emerges a large, bluishgray mass of lumbering animals. A few moments later, four African elephants come into focus. The mammoth mammals shuffle about, waving their trunks along the orange trees and plucking the sweet, round fruit. The herd pays not much attention to a small group of onlookers and continues munching on the citrus, seemingly enjoying their new home at the National Elephant Center, a nonprofit organization that provides permanent and temporary residency for elephants.

There was no breeze to speak of from across the Intracoastal Waterway. The humidity was high and the temperature was above 80. But it was a good night for exercising, so a friend and I walked along the West Palm Beach waterfront taking in the view of Palm Beach and admiring the houses of the tony neighborhood south of Southern Boulevard that has been nicknamed So-So. Then a car slowed, the window came down and the passenger shouted, Hey, faggots! A stop like that could lead to a beating or worse. Fortunately, the car sped off. And just like that, I was transported more than 30 years back to high school in Fort Myers. The memories go something like this: Algebra class began and the first spitball hit. Mr. Gilmore turned and began to write a problem out on the board. Zing! And other. Someone hissed, Faggot! Mr. Gilmore turned around, gave the class a look and continued writing. Another spitball and class continued. It was 1977 and these were the honor students. Riverdale High was the easternmost high school in Lee County, and served a predominantly rural community. It could be a tough crowd. No Latin class here, and humanities courses were cut to make way for a remedial writing class. Books and arts were frowned upon by many of the students. So were people who were different. Even then, I was the geeky kid. I was shy and slightly chubby, and the thick aviator glasses I wore let everyone know I took things perhaps a little too seriously. Kids could be cruel and they fed on that. Take the time a girl walked up to me and shouted, Hey, fag-boy. She grabbed my books and tossed them into a water-filled ditch. The stack sank to the bottom of the mire. It almost was pointless to retrieve them, as the crowd shouted, Faggot! Faggot! Faggot! over and over. The books were ruined, and at the end of the year, Mr. Gilmore looked at the algebra book, its cover warped and its pages stuck together, and said, I really should charge you for this... He didnt. The torment continued, though it eased somewhat; even senior year could be a bumpy bus ride as kids shouted a chorus of Scott! Faggot! Scott! Faggot! all the way home. Grandma had said to counter the tormenters by telling them they didnt know what the word meant. I tried it, but one boy gave a very graphic definition of the word, and a visit to the dictionary proved him to be somewhat accurate. Thirty-five years later, a little perspective helps. Florida was a simpler place. Local folks could be simpler, too. They were nave, and tended to see things in strict hues of black and white. Taupe and gray were elusive, and forget all about the folks who possibly followed a rainbow. Fort Myers still had a small-town feel three decades ago, but was well on its way to becoming the hub that it is today. West Palm Beach was the big city for us heck, it had a mall with two major department stores but civilization largely ended at Military Trail. The land along U.S. 441 and beyond was horse, cattle and farm country that gave way to the sugarcane fields of the Glades. State Road 80 cut through a vast emptiness that ended at the Orange River in Fort Myers. Thirty-five years later, southern Florida feels all grown up. But somehow it feels tragic that youth feel the need to belittle folks because of sexual orientation or race, especially in a free, educated society. Faggot. The word contains two painful syllables. Replace it with any racial slur and the hurt is still the same. As Pride Day traditionally the last Saturday in June approaches, its important to remember that were all in this together, straight or gay. It is part of the diversity that makes our nation great, and it reminds us that bigotry diminishes us all. k e way f or a w ned up on on b b y y e di di ff ff er ent e ky ky k k i d I was n d the thick everyone p s a l itt l e d t h ey w a lk e d Hey, d tosse d h. bo tt o m e ss to shouto t! over an d at Gil mb oo k a ges I o r I tr ie d it, b ut on e e b oy gave a very gr gr ap ap hi h c de f inition o f th h e wo o rd rd , and a vi sit to t h e d ictionar y pr ove d h im t t o o be be so m e what a cc urat e F ort th ree d w a y to We W st P us s h d e pa rt rt m l a rg el y a l on g U cattle a the su g Roa d th a Fo Fl o B u yo uth b ecaus e es pe ci a F a gg sy llabl e R e pl hu rt i s A s P S atur da im p o r t h is

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 27-JULY 3, 2013 GUEST OPINIONA lesson in leaving the world a better place BY SAM DURSO, M.D.Special to Florida WeeklyI believe that each of us desires to leave our world a little better than when we arrived. My wife was no different. As was true throughout her life, she did everything with the fullest measure of what she had to offer. Her legacy stands as a testimony to her passion to make a difference, and particularly to positively impact the lives of children living in poverty. In 1993, when Mary Ann and I retired to Marco Island, she became involved in Guardian Ad Litem, a strong and critically important organization that advocates for our communitys abused and neglected children. At the same time, I picked up my hammer and began working on Habitat for Humanity homes, beginning with house No. 100 in Immokalee. As I learned more about the work that Habitat was doing and its incredible impact on children and families struggling to break the cycle of poverty, I encouraged Mary Ann to join me on a home visit to a prospective partner family (the last step in the exhaustive application process). Having been in and out of many homes in Immokalee, she knew that a safe, stable and affordable home could make a life-changing difference to ALL the children in a family and even could preclude the need for Guardian Ad Litem.After that first visit, the rest, as they say, is history. For 15 years, we worked together to strengthen the Collier County affiliate of Habitat for Humanity and to reach as many families as possible. By building relationships with generous donors, hard-working volunteers and inspirational partner families, we witnessed the transformation that occurred in everyone who got involved. Together, we built a strong and dedicated staff that multiplied our efforts and, in 2002, we reached the milestone of building 100 homes in a year. Mary Anns efforts remained intensely focused on families. Through many of her initiatives, we have seen the success of 1,600 local families who now own the homes that they helped to build. It was Mary Anns insight that led to our requirement that mortgage payments be made in person. In this way, our relationships with partner families remain strong, and late payments are a rarity (our delinquency rate is less than 5 percent). A careful balance between tough love and unconditional acceptance remains one of my late wifes greatest lessons and something that our staff continues to strive to emulate. In 2008, just months after Mary Anns passing, Habitat for Humanity International selected Naples to be the site of the 300,000th home built in the world. That home was funded and erected in Mary Anns memory and serves as a constant reminder of her deep dedication and unwavering commitment to the mission of Habitat for Humanity. Mary Ann was taken from us too soon. But the legacy that she has left continues to offer hope to Collier County families living in desperate conditions. Her inspiration to those who knew her and worked alongside her remains the driving force behind new initiatives and programs to support and empower partner families. If you are looking for a way to positively impact our community for generations to come, I invite you to join me in the work of Habitat for Humanity as together we build a legacy and make a life-changing difference. For more information about volunteering or donating to support Habitat for Humanity of Collier County, please call our office at 775-0036 or visit www. habitatcollier.org. Dr. Sam Durso is president and CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Collier County. This year marks the fifth anniversary of the passing of his wife, Mary Ann, who served as full-time volunteer executive director of the organization. This year also marks the 35th anniversary of the local Habitat affiliate.

Sister Helen Prejean agreed, forever changing her life, as well as the debate on capital punishment in this country. Her experiences inspired her first book, Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty in the United States, which has just been republished on its 20th anniversary. She was a pen pal with Patrick Sonnier, a convicted murderer on death row in Louisianas notorious Angola prison. In her distinctive Southern accent, she told me of her first visit to Sonnier: It was scary as all get-out. I had never been in a prison before. ... I was scared to meet him personally. When I saw his face, it was so human, it blew me away. I got a realization then, no matter what he had done ... he is worth more than the worst thing he ever did. And the journey began from there. Sister Helen became Mr. Sonniers spiritual adviser, conversing with him as his execution approached. She spent his final hours with him, and witnessed his execution on April 5, 1984. She also was a spiritual advisor to another Angola death row prisoner, Robert Lee Willie, who was executed the same year. The book was made into a film, directed by Tim Robbins and starring Susan Sarandon as Prejean and Sean Penn as the character Matthew Poncelet, an amalgam of Mr. Sonnier and Mr. Williams. Ms. Sarandon won the Oscar for Best Actress, and the films success further intensified the national debate on the death penalty. The United States is the only industrialized country in the world still using the death penalty. There are currently 3,125 people on death row in the U.S., although death-penalty opponents continue to make progress. Maryland is the most recent state to abolish capital punishment. After passage of the law, Maryland Gov. Martin OMalley wrote: Evidence shows that the death penalty is not a deterrent, it cannot be administered without racial bias, and it costs three times as much as life in prison without parole. Whats more, there is no way to reverse a mistake if an innocent person is put to death. Studies of the racial bias abound. The Death Penalty Information Center, citing a recent Louisiana Law Review study, reports that in Louisiana, the odds of a death sentence were 97 percent higher for crimes in which the victim was white than those where the victim was African-American. Nationally, 75 percent of the cases that resulted in an execution had white victims.Although Colorado is not one of the states to abolish the death penalty, Gov. John Hickenlooper used his executive authority to grant a temporary reprieve to one of the three death-row prisoners there, saying, It is a legitimate question whether we as a state should be taking lives.This week, Indiana released a former death-row prisoner. Paula Cooper was convicted for the 1985 murder of Ruth Pelke. Ms. Cooper was sentenced to death at the age of 16, and was, at the time, the youngest person on death row in this country. Ms. Pelkes grandson, Bill Pelke, actively campaigned for clemency for her: I became convinced, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that my grandmother would have been appalled by the fact that this girl was on death row and there was so much hate and anger towards her. He went on, When Paula was taken off of death row in the fall of 1989, I thought, Well, thats it. Shes off of death row. My mission has been accomplished. Nevertheless, Ms. Pelke joined a march from Floridas death-row prison to Atlanta, on which he met Sister Helen Prejean. After 17 days of walking down the highways with this nun, you get a real education about the death penalty. It was on that march with Sister Helen Prejean where I dedicated my life to the abolition of the death penalty, he said. As long as theres any state in this world thats killing their own citizens, Im going to stand up and say that its wrong. Sister Helen said one of her greatest regrets was that she failed to reach out to the families of the murder victims while she was spiritual adviser to Mr. Sonnier and Willie. She went on to found Survive, an organization to support families of murder victims such as Ms. Pelke. She wrapped up our conversation this week by saying: Ive accompanied six human beings and watched them be killed. I have a dedication to them to do this; I cant walk away from this. Im going to be doing this until I die. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

Her life story serves as an object lesson for many of the young people the foundation serves. The sixth of seven children, Liz Pea Allbritten was the first child born in the United States to Jose Mercedes Pea and Melba Cubero after they immigrated to Miami from Honduras in 1960. Although the family had lived a life of wealth and privilege in Honduras, no such luxury existed for them here. Liz graduated from Hallandale High School in 1979 and attended Broward College and the University of Phoenix. She began her career in higher education as an academic adviser at Broward College in Fort Lauderdale, and served the school in various capacities over the next 23 years, ultimately becoming director of student life and development. Upon moving to Naples in 2004, she began volunteering for nonprofit organizations including the PACE Center for Girls, the United Arts Council and the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerces Youth Leadership Collier program. In 2007 she joined the Education Foundation of Collier County as the vice president for the Take Stock in Children program. She joined The Immokalee Foundation two years later. She and her husband, Jeff Allbritten, the president of Edison State College, reside in Naples. They have two children and four grandchildren. One of Lizs favorite quotes is from Ralph Waldo Emerson: To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. To her, those words exemplify true life and success. My family had great success in Honduras if you measure success simply by the accumulation of wealth, she says. They lost all they had and came to the United States with very little money Houses are built with bricks and mortar and some are quite grand; assets are simply placed on a balance sheet and they are fleeting. A home is made with love and respect, and success is measured by the difference one makes to enhance the life of another.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 27-JULY 3, 2013 phase of the facility welcomed its charter guests in late May. The four African elephants from Disney World are making themselves at home, says Executive Director John Lehnhardt. Plans are for the center to accommodate Asian elephants as well. The National Elephant Center is the dream child of Mr. Lehnhardt and other wildlife advocates who comprise the board of directors. Approximately 75 zoos around the country have contributed financially and in other ways to bring the dream to fruition. All accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the supporting zoos have elephants themselves and expect someday to benefit from the existence of the center. Its a support system for zoos, Mr. Lehnhardt says. Zoos that have elephants trumpet the National Elephant Center as a godsend. This is something the zoo community has needed for a long time, says Tony Vecchio, executive director of the Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens. Its especially exciting to see it happening right here in Florida. The vast acreage being leased to the center by an orange grove owner for $1 a year for 40 years is vital for keeping male or bull elephants, mostly solitary creatures who need room to roam. At capacity, the center could house 45 elephants. It cost $2.4 million to get the 25-acre first phase up and running; four subsequent phases totaling an additional $2.4 million will depend on private and corporate donations and fundraisers. The master site plan calls for four open-air barns for daily caretaking, health checks and veterinary procedures, a keeper center, conservation/ education center, elephant overlooks, a pavilion and varied yards for flexibility. Ultimately, the center might also have an observation tower and an education center for school groups and other visitors to learn about elephants. The grounds are designed to ensure the elephants security and safety and to enable them to roam free, forage and socialize with their families and herds. Mr. Lehnhardt and his staff of caretakers work to keep the elephants healthy and comfortable in their tropical surroundings. Chief Operations Officer Jeff Bolling and his staff work to minimize human interaction with the animals so that they can form and cultivate their own social groups. Our goal is for them to be elephants, Mr. Lehnhadt says.Meet the elephantsThe first four pachyderm residents at the new center are a family made up of Thandi, the matriarch at 33 years old; Moyo, 32; and her male calves, Tufani, 10, and Tsavo, 5. The daily routine in their new digs starts with morning baths, care checkups and breakfast. Fed a diet of grain, hay and supplements, the elephants eat several hundred pounds of food a day. Tufanis big hazel eyes are aglitter as he spots his breakfast being delivered. As it does for most teenagers, room service seems to agree very much with him. As a young and growing elephant, Tufani likes to eat, play with his brother, roll in the mud and knock over trees. And of course, theres his budding love life. Hes a preteen, Mr. Lehnhardt says. Hes very interested in the opposite sex. Tufani raises his trunk while handlers bathe him with a gentle spray of water. His emerging maturity has not gone unnoticed within his family. He is beginning to get asked in elephant ELEPHANTSFrom page 1FLORIDA WEEKLY AND COURTESY PHOTOSAbove: A famly of elephants at The National Elephant Center in Fellsmere.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 27-JULY 3, 2013 NEWS A9 terms to leave the nest. While Tufani, guided by the handlers, moves in different angles to get his bath, a barrier remains between him and the staff at all times. Hes not a pet, Mr. Lenhardt says. You cant get too close. Besides their own safety, theres another reason the handlers dont get too close: They want the elephants to focus on one another, not on people. Were not part of their social group, Mr. Lehnhardt explains. Elephants can live into their 60s and beyond, which means most of the pachyderms who come to the National Elephant Center will spend many years in residence there. Staff, on the other hand, will no doubt change over the years, and if they were encouraged to interact and bond with the elephants, such changes could affect the animals. On a recent day, one could spot the elephant family noshing on palm fronds, branches and oranges remaining in the citrus groves. The oranges are a new phenomenon for the elephants. With their large gray trunks, they suction oranges from the trees. It like a kid in the candy store, Mr. Lehnhardt said. Aside from a big appetite, elephants have even bigger brains that need to be enriched. Mr. Lehnhardt, the staff and Elephant Center board work to make sure that the sensitive, bright and socially aware creatures have what they need to thrive. Right now that support comes in letting the elephants get to know their new home and become comfortable in it.Maintaining the populationA main component of the National Elephant Centers mission is to ensure a future elephant population. For several decades, elephant numbers have dwindled. The African elephant is considered vulnerable and the Asian endangered, according to www.LiveScience. com. The animals are living in areas of dense human population. Their habitat is being encroached upon, and their lives are also being taken for their ivory tusks. Both Asian and African elephants are being persecuted, says Rick Barongi, director of the Houston Zoo and a board member for the National Elephant Center. The center will be able to contribute to maintaining elephants in the future, Mr. Barongi says. I think thats so important. Future breeding opportunities coupled with an education center and access for school children are what center staff and board members trumpet as the keys to the centers success. The vast majority of Americans will not be able to see elephants in their habitats, Mr. Barongi says. It (the center) will inspire all people, especially children, to care more about elephants. And if they care more about elephants, they will try to help them. Although the center houses elephants, it is not a sanctuary. A sanctuary keeps animals permanently and has core standards that emphasize no active breeding and no commercial trade. Nor are they generally not open to the public, says Jackie Bennett, deputy director for the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries.Helping Fellsmere tooBefore The National Elephant Center came to town, the residents of Fellsmere didnt have much reason to think about the 225 acres of orange groves the nonprofit now leases. But the new center holds the potential to make a difference in the lives of the citys 5,300 residents. The towns Frog Leg Festival every January used to be the biggest show in town. But with a herd of elephants in the neighborhood, now the people of Fellsmere can expect some new attention. Were very excited about it, says City Manager Jason Nunemaker. It just puts us on the map. Mr. Nunemaker expects the center will create opportunities and draw tourists when it is complete. He also envisions greater prosperity being generated from visiting trainers who will use City Hall as a place to work and hold meetings. I think its a huge resource on a variety of levels, he says. But perhaps the most tangible benefit will be for Fellsmeres youngest residents. The areas children are going to have a chance to take school trips to see and experience the elephants. Were excited, says Fellsmere Elementary School Principal Ramon Echeverria. Its unique. Its going to be a plus from an educational aspect. For many Fellsmere youngsters, it could be their first chance to see a real elephant. Theyre excited, Mr. Echeverria adds. These kids are off the chain. The idea of reaching children seems to matter most in procuring a future for the elephants. I think its going to have the biggest benefit for school kids, Mr. Barongi says. Those kids will be in awe.

Elephant facts>> Height: Five to 14 feet at shoulders (males); females of all subspecies are smaller than males. >> Length: Up to 30 feet trunk to tail. >> Weight: 6,000-15,000 pounds. >> Lifespan: Up to 70 years. >> Diet: Grasses, leaves, bamboo, bark, roots. Elephants are also known to eat crops like banana and sugarcane. Adult elephants eat 300-400 pounds of food per day. >> Range: African forest elephants inhabit the dense rainforests of west and central Africa. The Asian elephant is found in India, Sri Lanka, China and much of Southeast Asia. >> Behavior: Elephants form deep family bonds and live in tight matriarchal family groups of related females called a herd. The oldest and often largest female in the herd, called a matriarch, leads the herd. Herds consist of eight to 100 elephants depending on terrain and family size. When a calf is born, it is raised and protected by the whole matriarchal herd. Males leave the family between the ages of 12-15 and may lead solitary lives or live temporarily with other males. >> Communication: Recent discoveries have shown that elephants can communicate over long distances by producing a sub-sonic rumble that can travel over the ground faster than sound through air. Other elephants receive the messages through the sensitive skin on their feet and trunks. Source: www.defenders.orgTo help:>> The National Elephant Center is nonpro t and is accepting donations.

FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 WEEK OF JUNE 27-JULY 3, 2013 NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATEStorage cloudburstThe executive in charge of the electronic infrastructure of Facebook confirmed to Londons information-technology website The Register in June that when the company inaugurated its first cloud data-storage facility in Prineville, Ore., in 2011, the equipment was drenched when an actual cloud formed inside the building. (Facebook had only hinted previously at a Prineville humidity event, according to The Register.) The tall, huge buildings cooling units use an electricitysaving system that takes air from the outside (rather than recirculated indoor air) and subjects it to various humidity levels to cool the heat coming from the aisles of computer servers. Apparently, engineers had not accurately anticipated the vapor condensation profile of the new system, and rain guards were promptly installed. Cant possibly be true In May, only two states away from last years mass shooting at an Aurora, Colo., movieplex, management at the Goodrich Capital 8 Theaters in Jefferson City, Mo., hired a man dressed in full tactical gear and carrying guns resembling M-4 rifles and 9mm pistols (as S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives) to greet patrons for the opening of the new Iron Man movie. Police were not pleased by the barrage of frightened 911 callers who were fearful that Aurora was happening all over again. Capital 8 manager Bob Wilkins said that hundreds of customers were entertained by the publicity stunt and that only a few were upset. Since Rozie, a pregnant Asian elephant at Albuquerques ABQ BioPark Zoo, stands a better chance of a healthy birth if she is strong, the elephant manager and staff have been putting her through twicea-day, Pilates-type exercises (featuring leg lifts, squats and other calisthenics). (Rozie is due sometime between August and November.) Lest anyone worry that Rozie is being mistreated, the elephant manager noted in a May press release that her participation is completely voluntary. The founder of the Beauty Park Medical Spa in Santa Monica, Calif., has introduced a 45-minute procedure called the Male Laser Lift, which is also known colloquially as tackle tightening, involving the removal of hair and wrinkles on the scrotum, along with laser treatment to remove discoloration. Co-owner Jamie Sherrill (Nurse Jamie) told Londons Daily Mail that sales are up this year, and some might attribute that to a joke comment made by actor George Clooney that the latest Hollywood craze was ballironing. Recently, parents in Texas and New York City have pointed out that when children commit sex offenses against classmates, educational policy (and sometimes, the law) seeks to give light punishments and second chances to the perpetrators, thus posing risks to their classmates. A Texas child, raped at age 4 by a 13-year-old, recently was forced to endure the perpetrators return to class after only 45 days away at an alternative program because federal law requires the childs prompt return to ordinary classroom settings if a disability played a role in the incident. A New York City mother filed a $6 million lawsuit in May against the citys Education Department after her son was allegedly forced to perform oral sex on a group of classmates, one of whom had already been involved in a sex assault for which he received a five-day suspension. Inexplicable As John Jacobson, 20, was being booked into jail in Portland, Ore., in May (for allegedly trying to steal a case of beer from a Plaid Pantry grocery store), police discovered a live mouse in his pocket. Mr. Jacobson had his father come down to the jail and take custody of the mouse. Christies auction house in New York City reported that a painting of the late actress Bea Arthur nude from the waist up by the artist John Currin in 1991 had sold for $1.9 million on May 15th. Mr. Currin said that he made the painting from a photograph of Ms. Arthur clothed, and Ms. Arthur, known for her roles in TVs Maude and Golden Girls, appears younger in face and body in the painting than on the TV shows. Maryland state troopers caught sight of a drummer rocking out on the shoulder of Interstate 695 near Windsor Mill Road in Baltimore on May 21, at about 10:30 a.m. According to the troopers, the man had run out of gas and had decided to set up his drum kit to practice while he waited for assistance. When a utility truck arrived, supplying gasoline, the drummer packed up and resumed his travels. Perspective The websites OpposingViews.com and the Jewish Daily Forward (Forward. com), sweeping through all of the 2013 news accounts that two reporters could find, added up the fatalities so far this year (through May) of Americans killed by domestic terrorist attacks, compared to the number of Americans killed with guns fired by toddlers (aged 2-6). Terrorisms total: 4 (all from the Boston Marathon bombing). Gun deaths by toddlers: 11. (During the same period, 10 additional Americans were merely wounded by toddlers firing guns.) Least-competent criminals A 38-year-old man was arrested in Wichita, Kan., in June and charged with trying to rob a Spangles restaurant by presenting a cashier with a demand note. He was arrested a short time later and easily, because the demand for money was written on the back of a checkreorder form that contained his name and address. Joseph Meacham, 39, fleeing on foot during a mid-afternoon traffic stop in Clayton, Mo., in May, ran through town so indiscriminately that when he decided to duck into a building for cover, he failed to realize it was the St. Louis County Police Headquarters. He was found curled into a ball on the floor in a dead-end hallway, and promptly arrested.

The museum has issued a coast-to-coast all call for former crewmembers on the ship to be reunited Aug. 16-18 in New York. Nicknamed the Ghost Ship by the Japanese, the Intrepid was hit by five Kamikaze attacks in the Pacific but refused to sink. One of the most stalwart ships in U.S. history, she later served three tours of duty off Vietnam and in submarine surveillance in the North Atlantic during the Cold War. She was also one of the primary recovery vessels for NASA during the Mercury and Gemini space missions, and retrieved astronauts Scott Carpenter and Gus Grissom after their respective Earth orbits and splashdowns in the Pacific.

These hands-on and real-world experiences open their eyes to possibilities for their lives that they never imagined, Rev. Campbell says. Meeting business people who are interesting and enjoying their jobs and their fields makes a big impression on youth. Seeing what a workplace really looks like is invaluable. Throughout the almost two-hour visit at IberiaBank, staff provided both practical and fun information. The first thing that Cathi Johnson, vice president and branch manager for private banking, told the students was that everyone who enters a bank is on video, so they all turned to wave at the security camera. She asked the students if they knew why people use banks, and they answered with the main reasons: to put in and take out money, to transfer money and to borrow it though one student quickly added, But then you have to pay it back. Machelle Shirk, vice president for retail administration, shared a list of facts about money. Most students did not know that paper money is actually 75 percent cotton and 25 percent linen. And all of them were amazed to hear that 38 million bills with a value of $541 million are printed daily by the Federal Reserve in Fort Worth, Texas, and the District of Columbia. Lead teller Fernando Fresnillo demonstrated a money counting machine that can detect counterfeit bills. When asked about his favorite part of the tour later, 13-year-old Eduardo Martinez said the specialized equipment was a highlight. At the vault, Ms. Johnson let the students push the door to see how heavy it is. Opening the vault each morning requires two people with different codes, she told the students. Sebastian Sanchez, 13, said he was impressed with how securely the money is kept. The students enjoyed a tour of the lockbox area, watching how checks for utilities such as electricity and cell phones are processed. They got some hands-on experience as they helped operate the machine that slits open the payment envelopes. Just before snacks were served, they learned about the symbolism of the images and wording on the $1 bill, each getting to take one home along with a packet of information from the bank that included dress-for-success and interview etiquette tips. Leslie Mahoney from the banks human resources department discussed some of those tips while the students sat around a table in a conference room. She also demonstrated the best way to shake hands with a firm grip and making eye contact before she asked the students to practice with the person next to them. The students also heard from Maria Botana, Golden Bate branch manager, about how to protect themselves from identify theft. Then, Senior Vice President Paul Belfore invited five students up to the front of the room to role play the process of a customer making a deposit and another customer requesting a business loan. Mr. Belfore explained that a bank pays its customers interest to put their money there, FIELD TRIPFrom page 1 Seeking to put Gods love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

The students tour was just part of IberiaBanks relationship with Grace Place. The bank provides school supplies for Grace Place students and invited them to participate in the grand opening of the Golden Gate branch last December. And Ms. Botana recently launched a financial literacy training program for mothers whose children attend Grace Place, teaching them the basics of having a bank account. Most of them dont know how to manage money or how a bank works, she says. For now, the tour may have sparked an interest in a banking career for a budding branch manager or loan officer, or at least inspired the students to remain focused on their academics. A field trip can awaken the desire in a student to try new things and pursue previously unconsidered dreams, Rev. Campbell said. Studies also show that field trips can result in greater achievement in all subjects at school. By seeing real-life application of the lessons they are learning in school, students are more likely to understand and appreciate the importance and relevance of what they are learning.

And yet, the stories often touch us, individually and communally. The popularity of Silver Linings Playbook demonstrates our desire to understand the deep complexities of human behavior. In the awardwinning film, highschool teacher Pat Solitano Jr. struggles to find his way to a balanced emotional life following a months-long psychiatric hospitalization and the end of his marriage. The movie portrays the characteristics of bi-polar disorder honestly, poignantly and humorously, as the audience travels the emotionally moving yet capricious journey toward psychological stability with Pat and his family of parents, friends and a potential love interest, Tiffany, whos also bipolar. With the positive changes that come with Pats treatment, our compassion and acceptance of everyone involved increases, as they begin to appear less diagnosable, more commonplace and whole. Silver Linings Playbook is less an expose of mental illness as it is more a study of family love and tolerance, highlighting the beauty and healing magic that lie in that empathetic and pliable relationship. Bi-polar disorder is not a condition brought on by a weakness of will or a lack of prayer. It is a real illness and requires treatment, says Dr. Scott Haltzman, a staff psychiatrist at the David Lawrence Center. Yale-educated and the author of books including The Secrets of Happy Families: Eight Keys to Building a Lifetime of Connection and Contentment, Dr. Haltzman says that although the road from illness to wellness is not an easy transition for those with bi-polar disorder, the condition is very treatable. But sadly, not everyone suffering from a mental disorder will benefit from psychological intervention, as the stigma regarding mental disorders continues as one of the potential deterrents to treatment. If we dont talk about these things, the stigma will continue, Dr. Haltzman cautions. Our communal skin is highly sensitive to the potential trauma related to mental illness when left unchecked and/or untreated. Images of Sandy Hook and far too many other examples of brutal human outbursts and destruction remain imprinted in our hearts and minds. But most people with mental illness are not violent, Dr. Haltzman stresses. Psychological therapy (individual and family) is critical with this population and highly important in successful treatment, he adds. The assessment for potential assistive medications, as well as the use of supplements, exercise, healthy nutrition and meditation, can be useful tools in the treatment of bipolar and other mental disorders.

UNDERCOVER HISTORIANHats off to Guy Bradley and other Everglades wardensBack in the late 1880s, in order to keep up with demand from a thriving millinery trade, 5 million birds were being slaughtered every year for their prized plumes. Those plumes were as valuable as gold. Historical records show that in 1915, an ounce of gold sold for $32 the same as plumes. Its hard to believe that ladies hats were at one time a $17 million industry. The Florida Everglades were prime hunting grounds. Most birds were shot in the springtime, when their feathers were colored for the nesting and mating season. Poachers would shoot the birds, pluck the plumes and leave the carcasses to rot. Also left behind were thousands of baby birds, defenseless without their parents and doomed to die from starvation or exposure. Its no wonder that many species were decimated, most notably the great egret. In an effort to control plume hunting in Florida, the American Ornithologists Union and the National Association of Audubon Societies (known today as the National Audubon Society) persuaded the state Legislature to pass a bird protection law in 1901. With that law came jobs for wardens to oversee rookeries throughout the Everglades. Enter Guy Bradley, a game warden who was also a deputy sheriff for Monroe County (of which Collier County was once part). Before becoming a guardian of the wading birds, Guy had been a plume hunter himself. He and his older brother served as scouts for the noted French plume hunter Jean Chevalier on his trip to the Everglades. It was 1885. Guy was 15 years old, and plume feathers were selling for more than $20 an ounce. It was reported that on that one hunting trip, which lasted several weeks, Mr. Chevalier and his party killed 1,397 birds of 36 different species. Seventeen years later, Mr. Bradley became one of the first wardens hired by the American Ornithologists Union and the Florida Audubon Society. For a monthly stipend of $35, he was charged with single-handedly patrolling the area that stretched from Floridas west coast through the Everglades and on down to Key West an area known for its plentiful egrets, spoonbills, white ibis and herons. It was a dangerous job, and one that Mr. Bradley took very seriously. The story is told that on July 8, 1905, gunshots rang out near his home in Flamingo. He got into his skiff and came upon a father and two sons by the name of Smith shooting up a rookery. This was not their first altercation; Mr. Bradley had twice arrested two of the Smith men for poaching, and the elder Smith had threatened to kill the warden if he tried to cite anyone in his family again. This time, as Mr. Bradley attempted to arrest one of the sons who was loading plumes into a truck, Mr. Smith opened fire with his hunting rifle. The wardens body was found the next day by a search party, having drifted 10 miles from the scene of the crime. The day after that, Mr. Smith sailed to Key West and turned himself in to the authorities. Mr. Smith claimed selfdefense, maintaining that Mr. Bradley had fired first. Even though the evidence showed the warden had never fired his gun, the jury decided against conviction, saying there was insufficient evidence. Mr. Bradleys death and Mr. Smiths acquittal made headlines in the New York Times, Philadelphia North American, New York Herald and Forest and Stream. Not only were members of Audubon societies around the country outraged, womens clubs around the country rose up against the use of plumes in millinery and encouraged others to follow suit. A couple of years after Mr. Bradleys murder, another game warden/deputy sheriff went missing near Charlotte Harbor. His boat was later recovered, having been weighted down, but the body was never found. That same year, an employee of the South Carolina Audubon Society was shot and killed during an ambush. The deaths helped put a stop to the commercial trade of feathers from Florida. In 1910, the New York legislature passed the Audubon Plumage Act, outlawing the plume trade once and for all. Mr. Bradley was buried on a shell ridge overlooking Florida Bay. A monument erected by the Florida Audubon Society was inscribed: Guy M. Bradley, 18701905, Faithful Unto Death, as Game Warden of Monroe County he Gave his Life for the Cause to Which he was Pledged. The grave and monument were washed away during Hurricane Donna in 1960; however, the original gravestone was recovered and is now on display at the Flamingo Visitor Center.

PET TALESPet-safe on the Fourth of JulyPrepare now for the most dangerous holiday for companion animals BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickI love the Fourth of July. I love the picnics and parades, and especially the fireworks. But I love my pets, too, so I usually stay home. My cats live indoors, so I dont worry about them running off in fear, and my backyard is double-fenced, so I dont worry about my dogs bolting when let outside, either. But I know I would spend the evening worrying if I left them alone, and with good reason: Petadvocacy groups warn that more pets are lost or killed, injured or panicked on this day than on any other. Even if your pet is not the nervous type, it is a good idea to think twice before heading out the evening of July 4, or at least to take some precautions. Here are some tips: Line up some chemical calm. If you know your pet looks for a place to hide and shiver at the neighborhoods first noise, call your veterinarian in advance to get a medication to keep him calm. While you are at it, ask if your vet is available for after-hours emergencies, and if not, get the location and phone number of the nearest emergency clinic. You never know if you will need it. One usually calm dog I know jumped through a sliding-glass door after firecrackers went off in the yard behind him. Fortunately, his owners knew where to take him, and he got the prompt care he needed to save his life. Set up a safe room. For truly terrified pets, its not a bad idea to secure them in quiet room, or a crate if theyre used to one. Synthetic pheromone sprays Feliway for cats, Adaptil for dogs, both available at pet stores mimic the natural substances that calm anxious pets, and help many pets over the rough spots. Clothing that hugs your pet, such as Thundershirts, has also been shown to help. And many people have used the homeopathic Rescue Remedy on their pets; a few drops in drinking water may help. Keep your pets secure. Make sure all your pets are safely confined and provided with plenty of fresh, cool water (nervous animals drink lots of water). Bring outside pets inside, at least into the garage. Allow your cat no access to the outside, and be sure to keep your dog on leash outside, even in your own yard if youre not sure about your fencing. Frightened dogs have been known to go over or even through fences that would normally hold them. And cats are often the targets of cruel pranksters, some of whom enjoy terrorizing animals with fireworks. Prepare for the worst. Make sure your pet is wearing a collar with ID tags. When animal-control agencies are closed, theres no way for your pet to be traced to you unless you have made sure your phone number is also on that collar. And if you dont have time to get your pet microchipped, get it done before next years fireworks. Know what to do if you lose your pet. Start looking as soon as you discover your pet is missing. Cover your neighborhood with fliers and check with veterinarians, emergency clinics and shelters. When dealing with shelters, remember that a phone call is not enough. Shelter staff cannot remember every animal in the place, and may not be able to recognize your pet from your description even if they have seen it. It is important to check in person at least every other day. With so much to worry about, I feel a lot better staying home. Besides, I live close enough to my citys fireworks show that I can get a pretty good view without leaving my pets alone. Leave your party animal at home, and stay with him if you can. The Fourth of July is a risky day for cats and dogs. >>Kat is a 2-year-old Labrador retriever mix who weighs about 60 pounds.

THE DIVA DIARIES How to get the hang of responsible drinkingTechnically, its not party season, and yet there seems to be an awful lot of imbibing in tasty adult beverages lately. Then again, its the heat of summer and theres not much else to do but sit around the pool, the patio or the living room and sip the summer away. Last week, I enjoyed my first blueberry mojito at a tiki bar; on Saturday morning, I attended a lovely morning wedding complete with an all-you-can-drink mimosa bar; and on Sunday afternoon, a thoughtful neighbor friend showed up with a giant glass of the most delicious and refreshing homemade white sangria ever, filled to the brim with freshly cut fruit. Alas, with so many creative beat-theheat cocktails, there are plenty of headthrobbing hangovers to go with them. Fortunately, since Ive been covering parties and events since before the first Tom Collins was concocted (not really, but almost), I have discovered through much trial and error that there is no cure for a hangover. None. That greasy breakfast you crave or even a Hangover Omelet will only make you feel worse. Aspirin will alleviate your headache, but it does the opposite to your stomach. A liver working to metabolize liquor doesnt need to deal with Tylenol as well, so stay away from that. Hair of the dog the morning after only serves to postpone the inevitable. The only thing that seems to soothe at all is staying in bed all day and watching a marathon of happy Tom Hanks movies such as Big and Sleepless in Seattle. Not Castaway, though. You dont want to see poor Tom knock his own tooth out when youre hungover. Trust me on this. Here, dear readers, is how one avoids a hangover and therefore need never fret that there is no relief: Never mix, never worry is a true fact. If youre going to drink wine, dont switch to vodka midstream, or youll regret it. Enjoy a cocktail, then drink a full glass of water before ordering another cocktail. A friend of mine calls it the rinse cycle. Please, I beg you: Eat a meal before imbibing. Drinking on an empty tummy is the most common cause of hangovers. Remember in Gone with the Wind when Mammy makes Scarlett eat a plate of food before the Wilkes barbecue? Its not in the dialogue, but Im certain it was because Mammy didnt want Scarlett getting fall-down drunk at the party. Mammy was very, very savvy. Dont do shots. Just dont. So many hangover stories start with, I was fine until we started doing Jagermeister shots And, finally, if you ignore everything above and find yourself drunker than Cooter Brown, do NOT drive. Hangovers are no fun, but waking up on a cot in a cell would likely be your worst hangover ever. Three artists, one showI cant think of anything more delightful than being at the Sweet Art Gallery perusing the vivid, festive and colorful works of Sharon Erby, Madelon Gorsky and gallery owner Dede Sweet herself, who paints under the moniker, MAC. (Ms. Gorskys The Girls, shown here, makes me smile and want to pack my beach bag but probably keep my cover-up on once my toes are in the sand, at least until Ive had my first a pia colada.) The opening reception for the new exhibit, fittingly dubbed Summer Jamboree, will surely be sweet. Be there from 6-8 p.m. Friday, June 28. In case you cant get there for the opening fun, the exhibit will hang through July 24. Through June, regular gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday; July and August hours are noon to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday and by appointment Saturday. Check it out at 2054 Trade Center Way.

Also spotted: beach towels and umbrellas in various patterns of red, white and blue, and pint-sized plastic chairs in red and blue ($3.99) for flag-waving toddlers. Tervis goes patriotic Every household can always use another Tervis Tumbler or two, right? Bealls has them with all-American designs from fireworks and flags to Uncle Sam and stars-andstripes peace signs ($15.99 for a 16-ounce mug or tumbler). Cheers! Redneck wine glasses (Mason jars affixed to crystal stems) are great for indoor to-dos, but a Solo cup hot-glued to a plastic stem is safe by the pool (40 percent off the regular price of $14.99 at Bealls). Decorate! Bealls has an array of wood blocks with patriotic proclamations such as Every heart beats true (40 percent off the regular price of $24.99). Prop one up by the Drinks tub. Dollar Tree has paper lanterns ($3 for a package of two) perfect for hanging in the pool cage or over the buffet table. Accessorize! Every red-blooded fashionista can accessorize herself for the holiday with one stop at Charming Charlies in Mercato, where we scored sunglasses ($12.99), bangle bracelets ($10) and a necklace inspired by Old Glory ($10). By the checkout counter at Pier One, we found necklaces of little red, white and blue stars that light up and blink ($10). Store and serve We dont usually think of Best of Everything for kitchen stuff, but these metal mixing bowls with plastic lids would be perfect accessories for an Independence Day pot-luck ($8 and $10). Also seen: a bright red, crisp cotton tunic dotted with white crabs and trimmed in navy blue ($44), and gauzy cotton scarves in red or blue and white stripes ($14). And if hair bows are your thing, Best of Everything has tons of them in red, white and blue for $3 each.

About 65 percent of Americans give charitably. The 2012 Giving USA report released this month by the Center for Philanthropy at Indiana University shows that charitable giving totaled $316 billion, an uptick of 3.5 percent over 2011s total. Thats still significantly below 2007s peak of $344 billion. The breakdown for the $316 billion in gifts by donor type was: individuals at $229 billion; foundations at $45 billion; bequests at $23 billion; and corporations at $18 billion. And what sectors received these gifts? The top recipients were: religious groups at $101 billion; education at $41 billion; human services (which includes hurricane relief) at $40 billion; foundations at $31 billion; and health organizations at $28 billion. The bulk of the $229 billion in individual giving comes from high-net-worth, or HNW, donors; a group few in number. Roughly half (of the $229 billion) was given by the wealthiest 3 percent of American households, says the report. While the report gives insights as to overall giving, the annual Bank of America Annual Study of High Net Worth Giving released in November 2012 and based on 2011s giving focuses on the patterns, priorities and trends of Americas wealthiest households. The Bank of America study also was conducted in conjunction with the Center for Philanthropy at Indiana University; it is the fourth time-sequenced study covering this groups giving. While the middle and lower economic classes focus their giving on religious causes or their church, the giving by HNW individuals becomes much more diverse and is becoming far more complicated. HNW individuals are defined, per the Indiana University study, as households with incomes exceeding $200,000 and/or with net assets exceeding $1 million. It is this group that writes the priceless checks to support the many worthy organizations in higher education, medical research, health institutions, the arts and so forth. Their reasons for giving vary, from passionate interests, to peer pressure, to complicated tax strategies, to generational family traditions, etc. But their capacity to give might be constrained by higher levels of taxation and the economic sub par recovery. As a consequence, HNW giving (excluding the top 50 philanthropists) is changing. The biggest change in 2011s HNW giving (excluding the mega million gifts or outliers) was that giving decreased from 2009. The average amount donated to philanthropic causes in 2011 was $52,770 a 7 percent decline from 2009. (But it is a 45 percent decline from 2005 when the average amount excluding the outlier gifts was $96,408.) Even though high-net-worth households are on average giving less, the giving of the top 50 philanthropists moves the overall meter. In 2011, the inclusion of the bequest from the estate of Margaret Cargill $4.4 billion accounted for the decline in giving by the average HNW households. Besides a decline in gifting, The Philanthropy Daily reported in November that the HNW givers made some other changes in 2011. They became more focused, reducing the number of gift recipients. Surprisingly, according to the Bank of America report, the HNW group expects nonprofits to spend an appropriate amount of their donation on general administration and fundraising as it demonstrates sound business and operational practices. They expect nonprofits to honor their request for privacy and anonymity and similarly to not distribute their name to others. The HNW group is very much impacted by tax policy. The Obama administration threatened at several points in Obamas first term to decrease the value of the charitable deduction for high-income households. Nearly half 49 percent of respondents in the new Bank of America report said that they would decrease their charitable giving in response to such a move (about the same percentage of respondents who reported that they would feel this way in the previous Bank of America reports). For those who readily point to the wealthy as not paying their fair share, they might want to, firstly, consider the degree to which the HNW group give more than their fair share ( to many nonprofits for which they or their children are direct recipients of such largesse; e.g., gifts that help colleges meet their budgets) and, second, consider that the nature of very large gifts generally requires a lot of time and effort in making the gift. More than 90 percent of the HNW group donate time to the nonprofits. Beyond this service, most donors expend much time finding suitable recipients; conducting due diligence to affirm legitimacy; structuring the gift for tax benefit and creating a vehicle for giving in perpetuity; reviewing the funds expenditure and effectiveness, etc. Rarely is a large gift made without a multitude of such time-consuming steps. Rarely is the gift whimsically made. This columns focus on HNW giving does not suggest that lower and middle income groups are not doing their very best in their charitable giving and labors.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Progress for Shareholder Rights Many stock investors discard the annual proxy statements and ballots they receive from their holdings without looking at them. Thats a shame, as investors have been wielding more power lately. More attention is being paid to matters of corporate governance, such as board composition, voting rights and CEO pay issues. And the link between corporate governance, shareholder rights and choosing solid investments is gaining the attention it deserves. According to data from proxy advisory firm Institutional Shareholder Services, as of last year, 21.5 percent of S&P 500 companies had an outside director serving as chairman of the board, a huge increase from just 3 percent 10 years ago. Other heartening signs include corporations increasingly embracing shareholderfriendly gestures such as eliminating staggered board elections and putting majority voting in place. Both of these have a huge influence on the level of difficulty shareholders have in voting out underperforming or even incompetent directors. Staggered board elections remain in only a quarter of companies. Theyre a shareholder nightmare because they have only a portion of the board coming up for election in any given year. Meanwhile, plurality voting is giving way to majority voting. Majority voting requires directors to receive a majority of votes cast in order to be elected. Far fewer votes can prevail with plurality voting. Not everything is improving, though. Multiple-class stock structures are on the upswing, permitting insiders to maintain voting control. Its no surprise theres still work left to do in reminding corporate managements and boards that they are beholden to shareholders, not their own self-interest and control. And more shareholders need to come to the realization that theyre part-owners of public companies, so they should act like it. Recent years have delivered accelerated progress, though, strengthening shareholders more than ever. If we investors continue to take long-term views and weigh factors such as corporate governance policies in our investment decisions and proxy voting, well see far more victories toward the goal of having stronger companies to invest in and a stronger marketplace. Dont Settle for High FeesThe smartest move I ever made, many years ago, was getting out of a big brokerage and transferring all my money to AARP, which charged relatively little. At the brokerage, my money was just sitting there, doing nothing, while I was charged very steep annual fees. J.R., Las VegasThe Fool responds: Many years ago, traditional full-service brokerages did charge steep fees. Thats partly what drove the growth of discount brokerages that started out with fewer services but lower fees. Today, there are many solid brokerages charging relatively little and also offering many services, such as banking, retirement planning, mutual funds, annuities and more. (Learn more about some good ones at broker.fool.com.) AARP still offers financial services, such as immediate annuities and insurance. It has partnered with Schwab, for example, providing financial advising and brokerage services. (Learn more at AARP.org.) Its great that you realized how harmful steep fees can be. If a firm is taking hundreds of dollars from your account every year, it better be more than making up for that with great performance. Otherwise, its just shrinking your nest egg, which could grow elsewhere.A Refined StockValero Energy (NYSE: VLO) was recently one of the cheapest stocks in the S&P 500. Having both fans and doubters, it deserves some consideration for a berth in your portfolio. Based in San Antonio and sporting a market value north of $20 billion, Valero is one of Americas largest oil refiners and ethanol producers. Its stock doubled in value over the past year, and yet it still looks compelling, with its price-toearnings (P/E) ratio in the single digits and a solid dividend yield. (Its dividend has grown by about 8 percent annually, on average, over the past five years.) Valero has been profiting from strong international demand for energy products. Naysayers dont like Valeros vulnerability to volatile commodity prices and worry that the company may suffer from proposed regulations requiring cleaner gasoline. Bulls see a lot of promise in the U.S. shale boom and like that Valero (and others) have been buying thousands of rail cars in order to transport inland crude to its refineries. Valero has also made investments in next-generation biofuel technologies such as green crude and algae farms, although each will take considerable time to prove effective at commercial scale. No company or stock is a sure thing, but Valero has been looking intriguing at recent levels. If management executes well, there could be a lot of upside to this oil stock. Founded in 1982 and based in San Jose, Calif., I may conjure images of buildings made from sun-dried earth. Im a high-tech company, though, with one of my main products named after a common circus performer. More than 90 percent of creative pros use my photo-editing software, and more than 5,000 top global brands rely on my digital marketing solutions. I employ more than 11,000 people around the world, and I generate about half my revenue abroad. My stock has gained about 12.4 percent annually, on average, over the past 20 years. I rake in more than $4 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: Adobe)Spending Company MoneyQWhat does a companys capital allocation refer to? S.L., West Palm Beach, Fla.AIts how the company spends its money, doing such things as buying back some of its shares on the open market, paying shareholders a dividend, paying off debt, buying another company, investing the money, or reinvesting it in the firms core business (perhaps building a new factory or hiring more employees). Companies should spend effectively, though buying back overpriced shares or paying too much for an acquisition, for example, is wasteful and hurts shareholders. ***QOnce I decide to invest in a mutual fund or a stock, how do I actually do it? R.B., HonoluluAYou can invest in most mutual funds either through an account you set up at a brokerage, and/or through the mutual funds parent company (such as Vanguard or T. Rowe Price). Some funds have small minimum initial investment requirements, such as $500 (compared with $10,000 or more for other funds). A good place to look up mutual fund track records, fees and other information is at morningstar.com. Remember that for many of us, index funds such as ones that track the S&P 500 are the best bet. Learn more at indexfunds. com and fool.com/mutualfunds/ mutualfunds.htm. To open a brokerage account, first choose one that suits your needs. Fill out an application and deposit money into the account. Then you can buy and sell shares of stocks, mutual funds and more. For help finding a good brokerage, visit broker.fool.com. Finally, consider using direct investing plans (Drips), which let you invest in companies with as little as $50 or less per month.

When everyone else is winding down, were building up for summer. From hometown operators such as Mr. Campo to the countrys largest theater chain, Regal Entertainment Group, expectations are high for summer ticket sales. Regal has 6,777 screens nationwide, including those at Town Center Stadium 16 in Port Charlotte, Hollywood Stadium 20 in Naples, and Bell Tower Stadium 20 in Fort Myers. Summers got a great mix of something for everybody, said Christine White, Regals southern region marketing manager. Its hitting every fan group and every interest base. One of the countrys smallest operations, the boutique Silverspot Theatre in Naples, offers special indie features in addition to blockbusters, plush seating and gourmet food. And Edison Park 8, an independently owned theater in Fort Myers, reopened in January with major upgrades after closing during the recession. The summer is always the season for theaters, unlike restaurants, said Bill Goble, projection manager for Edison Park 8. The theaters renovations include Dolby Surround Sound, 3-D, and ultra high-resolution digital projectors. At 4,000 lines per inch, theyre twice the resolution that other theaters offer and almost four times that of a standard 1080 HD television, Mr. Goble says. For movie history buffs, the theater has kept many of its antique projectors for posterity as well. An upstairs room at the theater will be used for birthday parties and to show off some projectors as museum pieces. Top grossingMarquee Cinemas Coralwood 10 in Cape Coral increases its staff from roughly 20 to 30 for the summer season. Iron Man 3 was a huge hit, of course. But the theater is even busier when movies that reach across market segments come in combination, pointed out general manager Matt Vandemark. Marquee was busiest recently when Fast & Furious 6 combined with raunchy comedy The Hangover Part III and animated feature Epic to reach a more diverse audience, from boys to boy-men. Features geared toward kids bring in bigger, younger crowds. During the summer, kids movies are the most important thing, Mr. Vandemark said, especially on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 9:30 when the theater offers a free kids show. On one such morning, busses arrived and parents dropped off children, filling the theaters almost 1,300 seats to capacity. We were running around like chickens with our heads cut off, Mr. Vandemark said.Sleeper hitsEvery year brings surprise hits, movies often geared toward mature audiences and made with relatively low budgets that end up being widely popular. Last year, the comedy-drama Magic Mike, a picture about a group of male strippers in Tampa, was the sneaker hit of the season, turning on straight women, gay men and movie critics down the line. This year, The Purge, a horror film made by production company Platinum Dunes, blew away stiff competition, heading to the top spot for its opening weekend. It is about a future in which all crime is legal for 12 hours each year. Some of the surprise stuff has been The Purge, said Jerry Jones, director of film, television and digital media for The Charlotte Harbor Visitor & Convention Bureau. The premise, from the standpoint of an older demographic, looked not very appealing. But that little production company has a history of making these little low budget films hugely successful. Marquee in Cape Coral gets younger kids during the week when teenagers head to the beach, Mr. Vandemark surmises and teenagers on the weekends. The teens tend to like R-rated pictures (those younger than 17 must be accompanied by an adult, not just dropped off at the show), so identification is checked at the door. Even if they arent allowed in, they try, says Mr. Vandemark with a smile. They absolutely try their hardest. Good luck with that, kids.

There May Be a Pill for That. The article explores the pharmaceutical industrys response to the complicated female libido, a subject that has long fascinated (and eluded) researchers. In the story were given a look into the science behind a new medication called Lybrido currently undergoing FDA trials. The pill aims to kindle female desire; many hope it will be a panacea for the declining sex drives that haunt many longterm couples. The article rightly points out the complexity of female desire, an elaborate system of physical and emotional stimuli often weighed down by the demands of daily life. Any misstep on the way to copulation and there are many can snuff out a womans appetite. Scientists are aiming to develop a drug that would prevent that, but to call these medications a female version of Viagra is misleading, the articles author writes: Viagra meddles with the arteries; it causes physical shifts that allow the penis to rise. A female-desire drug would be something else. It would adjust the primal and executive regions of the brain. It would reach into the psyche. The complicating factor with the female libido, it seems, has less to do with quotidian distractions and more to do with the quotidian itself. Through his research, the author suggests that the plunge in female libido is often tied to long-term monogamy. Whereas male desire stabilizes in a relationship, female desire plummets. Were not so much distracted, it turns out, as bored. Which is a terrifying prospect. So terrifying that a drug has been invented to counteract it. But what exactly are we afraid of? Perhaps that everything will fall apart. Weve created this mass delusion that we should find the right person, settle down together and feel uncomplicated lust into old age, long after the sheen has worn off the wedding china. We think if only we choose correctly, if we behave wisely, if we keep a tight rein on our desires and toe the unambivalent line, then this fantasy will come to pass. And if not? Now theres a pharmaceutical solution. What worries me about all this is not simply our reliance on an easy external fix the fact that we would turn to a pill in times of struggle but our unwillingness to examine lifes messy complications. We expend so much energy fortifying this ideal life we have built in our minds that we miss the opportunities for dazzling misadventures. Lifes most worthy moments rarely spring from smooth passages. They arise during the complicated chapters, the parts where we thought everything was falling down around us. If a perfectly content existence were handed to us in a pill, we would lose the rich complexity that makes this time on earth so remarkable. Id argue that the human condition is a state of uncertainty, and that the intangible loveliness of existence comes from the ebb and flow of all things including desire. Why would we ever give that up?

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 27-JULY 3, 2013 production opens Friday, June 28, at the Sugden Community Theatre and runs through July 28. Mr. Fornara is music director, conducting an orchestra of 14 in the pit; his wife, Dawn Lebrecht Fornara, is the choreographer. Dallas Dunnagan directs. This trio has been a winning combination many times for The Naples Players, often with the companys summer musicals. In his nine years with the community theater, Mr. Fornara says, this is the best cast Ive ever had I thought All Shook Up was great. This one is better, though it has a lot of the same people. Im absolutely thrilled. Its a musical Mr. Fornara knows well. He played both male leads Jean Valjean and police inspector Javert in the late 1990s in Germany for a little over a year. Initially, for the first six months, he was an alternate for both roles, a role similar to that of an understudy, except the actor is guaranteed stage time. Mr. Fornara would perform as Valjean in two shows and as Javert in another two performances each week in German. Theyre enormous roles, he says. Valjean, a French peasant, steals a loaf of bread for his sisters starving child. He serves prison time, but when hes released, he breaks his parole and is pursued relentlessly by Javert. So within the course of a week, Mr. Fornara would play both the man being chased and the one doing the chasing. Whats also really funny is that they each have a song that starts exactly the same way, he says. When you dont know the language that well, you have to be super careful. Valjean sings his at the beginning of the show, and Javert sings his at the end. You had to be very careful to make sure you were singing the right one. He looks back at that time as one of the best years of his life. The cast was like a family, he says. Its an incredible show so full of heart. Everything is so passionate and so emotional. You become emotionally invested with the people in the show. Some 20 years later, he says, he sees that happening with The Naples Players cast. At the first rehearsal with orchestra and cast together, he saw people weeping on stage. Mr. Fornara recalls that when he began rehearsing for the show in Germany, the director told the cast that Les Miserables would change their lives. And it does, he says. It really does. I cant say exactly why, except it speaks to so many human emotions. Part of the shows appeal to actors is that it has several iconic roles topshelf roles that everyone wants to play, he adds. Valjean is the best role to play in musical theater if youre a man. If youre a tenor or a bari-tenor, you dream of being Enjolras or Marius. If youre a soprano, you dream about playing Cosette. And if youre a belter, all you want to do is play ponine. And every character actor wants to play Thnardier and Madame Thnardier. Its everyones bucket list role, all in one show.Role of a lifetimeFor baritone Michael Freshko, playing Javert for The Naples Players is a dream come true. Ive loved it for 25 years, he says about the role. Its my favorite. He says hes drawn to the police inspector in Les Miserables because the character is so complicated. Some people mistakenly think hes a bad guy, but hes passionate ... about being the best he can be. Hes doing his job. He and Mr. Fornara performed together in CATS in 1997-98 in Germany, which is where Mr. Freshko saw Mr. Fornara as Valjean on stage at the closing night of Les Miserables. As Mr. Freshko prepares to play Javert with The Naples Players, he says Mr. Fornara has been a wealth of information about the character the role, the music, the body language how Javert walks, stands, holds himself. Once he (shared that) the role started coming together for me. Dave Gipson, cast in the role of Valejan for the upcoming production, also finds Mr. Fornaras first-hand experience invaluable. Hes there to guide me through it; he knows it inside and out, he says. Hes been an inspiration to me, personally, and also a comfort. Its like having someone shepherd you through it. Hell give me bits of stage business I wouldnt have thought of doing, because he has been through it himself. Im very fortunate to have him there as a guide. He has incredible insight into the character. Mr. Gipson, who in real life serves as the pastor at Legacy Church of Naples, says the character of Valjean is the most Christian character in musical theater, other than Jesus himself. He spends his entire life sacrificing himself for others Hes a heroic figure. Because of the pain hes been though in his life, he has a tremendous amount of mercy. At the other end of the spectrum, Mr. Gipson adds, Javert is a self-righteous man. Both characters claim to know God and be religious, but theyre completely opposite. One is self-sacrificing and merciful, while the other is judgmental and hateful. To me, the play is a sermon.A monster to conductIt isnt just the complexity of characters that makes Les Miserables a great musical, says Mr. Fornara, its how beautiful the music is, how strong the story. (Claude-Michel Schonberg wrote the music. Alain Boublil and Jean-Marc Natel wrote the French lyrics, which were adapted into English by Herbert Kretzmer.) The original version of the musical was known for its turntable set; the new national production doesnt use one, instead incorporating clever video projections to give a sense of place and movement. Nor does The Naples Players production have a turntable. When you get the rights (to the musical), the contract specifically spells out that youre forbidden to use a turntable, Mr. Fornara says. I think they wanted to keep the memory of the original production untainted. Only (producer) Cameron Mackintosh (could use the turntable set); that version will never be repeated. Mr. Fornara wont disclose how the Players are staging the show, allowing only that set designer Matt Flynn and his team, costume designer Dot Auchmoody and Ms. Dunnagan as the director have had really good ideas. Conducting the score will keep him on his toes throughout the month-long run, he says. No matter how well I know the score and I can sing the entire score, everyones part its a monster to conduct. There are so many meter changes, so many crazy musical things its pushing me to the limit. Its as complicated as conducting any opera would be. The musical marks the first time the Players have covers for roles someone who can step in and play someone elses role, if they need to. The show is vocally demanding, even the new shorter version that runs from 2 hours, 45 minutes to 3 hours long. I think this is going to be the best thing weve ever done, Mr. Fornara says.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 27-JULY 3, 2013 ARTS COMMENTARYSome short shorts for summerIts summer, the time of flip-flops and shorts. We cant provide any flip-flops for you, but we do know where you can find some great shorts the non-wearable kind. The sun and heat can make the brain a bit sluggish, and with that in mind, we offer some arts and entertainmentrelated quick hits to check out during the summer months. PBS OnlineYouve probably already watched entire shows on www.video.pbs.org (I just caught up with the second season of Call the Midwife), but did you know you can also see short videos from some of the networks arts and entertainment shows? Just think of it as public televisions version of early MTV you know, when they actually showed music videos. Ive recently watched: Jack White, on electric guitar, performing Paul McCartneys Mother Natures Son, with a nod to That Would Be Something in the middle. Alabama Shakes performing Born Under a Bad Sign, with lead singer Brittany Howard growling and belting her way through the song. Stevie Wonder at the piano, singing the Burt Bacharach/Hal David song, Alfie. What really knocked my socks off was when, halfway through the song, he played a couple of verses on the harmonica, hitting notes he wouldnt have been able to reach vocally and displaying such virtuosity it gave me a new respect for the instrument and what its capable of expressing. And this is just scratching the surface of whats available. Performances are from shows such as Live at Lincoln Center, Great Performances, In Performance at the White House, just to name a few. The last time I looked, there were 1,589 video shorts to choose from at video.pbs.org/topic/arts-entertainment/.The Idea ChannelA friend recently turned me on to the Idea Channel, a series of short PBS videos (three to eight minutes long) examining different ideas connecting pop culture, technology and art. Find it at www. video.pbs.org/program/idea-channel/. Presented by Mike Rugnetta, each video, which opens with the sentence, Heres an idea examines a different question. He presents his theories at such breakneck speed youd be forgiven for thinking that perhaps the studio is on fire and he wants to say his piece before the entire place burns down. And the accompanying graphics everything from The Village People to The Simpsons to movie stills from Singin in the Rain and The Matrix are unexpectedly clever. Some of the questions he debates: Is William Gibson a modern-day oracle? Is Dr. Who a religion? Is dub step the new musical avant-garde? What makes a pop star authentic? Is Twitter the newest form of literature? Are mashups the end of musical genres?The New School MinuteMy undergraduate school, The New School in New York City, recently held an event on alumni day where 20 professors and deans sequentially stood behind a podium and talked about a subject for a minute. (Though the event was held for alumni, you dont have to have attended the school to appreciate the mini-talks.) Of course, its almost next to impossible to get a professor to keep to a minute, so some of these mini-lectures run for oh, maybe two minutes. Topics of the rapid-fire talks range from design to economics to urban policy to music, drama and history. Some even incorporate graphics or video. Pippin Parker, director of The New School for Drama, spoke of the importance of drama, opening his talk by saying, If all people told the truth all the time, there would be no need for drama. His talk is poetic and lyrical, and Ive found myself watching it more than once. You can watch all 20 New School minutes by going to YouTube.com and keying in Alumni Day 2013: New School Minute. Or you can key in Pippin Parkers name, and then choose other minute lectures from the column on the right.Hint fictionBack in 2006, Larry Smith invented the six-word memoir. In comparison, Robert Swartwoods hint fiction stories consisting of no more than 25 words can seem almost downright wordy. In the introduction to his anthology, Hint Fiction (W.W. Nort on, $13.95), he writes: The hierarchy of fiction goes something like this: novel, novella, novelette, short story, sudden fiction, flash fiction, micro fiction, drabble, dribble Only two types have clear word distinctions: a drabble is a story of exactly 100 words; a dribble, of 50 words. And now, hint fiction: stories of 25 or fewer words.It almost seems like a literary parlor game; the trick is to pack as much as possible into those 25 words. (Swartwood explains that thats why he calls it hint fiction because the reader is given only a hint of a much larger, more complex story.)Some work is better than others. Theres Merrilee Fabers story, Love is Forever: We came around the corner and there they were: young lovers, hands clasped. I drew the outline, Joe directed the crowd. The title of Will Panzos story is almost as long as his story: The Man of Tomorrow or Maybe Youve Heard This One Before But Youve Never Heard it Like This. It reads: Dying planet. A boy, a rocket, a last hope. Kansas cornfield crash landing. Ma finds it sleeping in the crater. Pa fetches the shotgun. And then theres Widows First Year, by Joyce Carol Oates: I kept myself alive.Lydia DavisWhen it comes to writing short stories, Lydia Davis is a genius. In fact, she received a MacArthur Fellowship Award (commonly called the Genius Award) in 2003. Shes basically reinvented the genre of short stories. Her stories are lyrical, humorous, wry and totally unexpected. Though they are sometimes only a paragraph or two long, or even just one or two sentences, they are light years away from hint fiction. All her short stories, to date, have been gathered in The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis, now in paperback (Pacador, $20). Her Spring Spleen is just two sentences: I am happy the leaves are growing large so quickly. Soon they will hide the neighbor and her screaming child. And Special goes like this: We know we are very special. Yet we keep trying to find out in what way: not this way, not that way, then what way? Just this month, Ms. Davis won the Man Booker Prize, an international award that has a cash value of approximately $93,000 in U.S. dollars. A press release from the organization quotes Sir Christopher Ricks, chairman of the judges in the competition, saying Ms. Davis writings fling their lithe arms wide to embrace many a kind. Just how to categorize them? They have been called stories but could equally be miniatures, anecdotes, essays, jokes, parables, fables, texts, aphorisms or even apophthegms, prayers or simply observations. There is vigilance to her stories, and great imaginative attention. Vigilance as how to realize things down to the very word or syllable; vigilance as to everybodys impure motives and illusions of feeling. Fellow writer Dave Eggers says Ms. Davis work, blows the roof off of so many of our assumptions about what constitutes short fiction. n t of a much mp lex stor y .) g And S pe ci a kn o D Bo na a c ma t lars the o Chri s man c omp e Davis lith e ar m an y a eg orize t called s to be minia tu n ? e w ol, o rk v ent p rot iall y and a min a s held to have p reciate ti o n: s t o ri fe we r wo I t al m like a li t lor ga t rick is much i n t w o rd s.

But dont let it become all-consuming. Spend some spiritually restorative time with those who love you. LEO (July 23 to August 22) This could be a good time for all you Leos and Leonas to take your bows for your recent achievements and then go off to enjoy some fun times with your prides and joys. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A negative response to a well-intentioned suggestion could communicate a sense of distrust you might later find hard to refute. Think carefully before reacting. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your loving attention comforts a family member who is feeling a bit out of sorts. But be careful to prioritize your time so you dont neglect your work duties. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your curiosity might be resented by some. But those who know you will support your penchant for never settling for less than the truth. So stay with it. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A pesky situation from the past recurs, albeit in an altered form. Deal with it promptly before it can go from merely irksome to decidedly troublesome. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Dont wait too long to submit your proposals after giving them a last look-over. If necessary, you should be able to defend any portion called into question. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A bid to use your workplace dispute-settling skills in another situation is tempting. But be careful: You might not have all the facts youll need if you agree to do it. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) That sense of self-doubt is so untypical of you, you should have no qualms in shaking it off. Remind yourself of all youve done and can do, and then do it again. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Dont be Sheepish about asking questions and demanding answers. You not only gain needed information, but also respect for your steadfast search for the truth. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A money problem that shows up early in the week is expeditiously resolved by savvy Bovines who know how to turn a momentary financial lapse into a monetary gain. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Its a good time to shed negative energydraining forces and develop a positive approach to handling current, as well as upcoming, personal and/or professional situations.

Located just north of Vanderbilt Beach Road on U.S. 41 PLUS:Bead Toss at 8pm Prizes for 12 Lucky Winners! For the KIDS Indie Rock from NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 27-JULY 3, 2013 C11 Is it worth $10? NoSequels and any James Bond film can begin with large-scale action sequences because we know who the characters are and can easily grasp why theyre in a perilous situation. But when we dont know the characters and the action lacks energy as is the case with World War Z its especially grating because youre bored and have no idea why anything is happening. There are zombies, we do know that. Theyre fast, strong and aggressive, and with people turning into them within seconds of being bitten, the zombies are multiplying at an alarming rate. Whats causing this is never explained, which is annoying, but not nearly as frustrating as seeing Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt), his wife Karen (Mireille Enos) and their daughters (Sterling Jarins and Abigail Hargrove) get special attention from the government for (at this point) no discernible reason. Its not until about 30 minutes in that we learn Gerry is a former United Nations investigator who has experience in war-torn areas. With a pandemic in full swing, hes forced to traverse the globe looking for the person who started the zombiecausing virus, aka patient zero, as its believed the origin of the disease can also provide the antidote. If Gerry doesnt help, his family will be kicked off their safe haven cargo ship and placed in harms way. Soon Gerry finds himself in South Korea, Jerusalem and Cardiff, Wales, slowly but surely figuring out how to combat the omnipresent virus. Between various misleads and dead ends are some high-octane action scenes but only one of which, on a plane headed to Wales, is notably impressive (and still not nearly as good as the plane crash in Liam Neesons The Grey). The visual effects are adequate, highlighted by the aforementioned plane crash and the way zombies swarm like ants to climb a wall in Jerusalem, but overall, this film is not visually dynamic. And the 3D (if you go this route, which is not recommended) only makes things worse. Thankfully, though, director Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace) gives us a PG-13 rating, which spares us excess violence and gore. Although the movie is based on the best-selling book of the same name by Max Brooks, fans of the novel will only see scant elements of it here. Mr. Pitts production company, Plan B, won the rights to the novel, and with The Walking Dead and other undead-related content all the rage right now, its easy to see why he thought this could be a profitable big-ticket franchise. But what makes The Walking Dead so successful the central question of What becomes of humanity when all hope for mankind is lost? is completely absent here, shoved aside for the sake of post-apocalyptic action that doesnt want the audience to think for a second about whats going on. Unfortunately, World War Z is flat from the start. It sort of ambles its way along with excitement popping up here and there, always ready to feast on an action scene with reckless abandon because nothing else of interest is happening. You know, kind of like a zombie. LATEST FILMSWorld War Z t g e b M s danHUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Director Marc Forster told me in an interview that the original ending involved a large-scale battle sequence, but they changed it to a haunted-house setting that provides a different type of tension from the action in the beginning and middle of the lm. CAPSULESMan of Steel (Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon) Clark/Superman (Mr. Cavill), after being sent to earth by his father (Russell Crowe) prior to the destruction of their home planet of Krypton, discovers that surviving Kryptonian General Zod (Mr. Shannon) is planning to destroy earth. The action is strong and it looks great; too bad the story is burdened with surplus: too many characters, too little development. Rated PG-13. This Is The End 1/2 (Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jay Baruchel) Actors Mr. Rogen, Mr. 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 (Mr. Vaughn and Mr. 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.

Actual Patients of Dr. Andrew Turk. Names (and prices) are subject to change The names of antiques sometimes change as research corrects old errors. In the 1930s, an auction house sold a pair of what were called Lowestoft vases that were large enough to put on a fireplace mantel. They were named after the English town where they were thought to have been made in the 18th century. The vases had a traditional Chinese shape and were made of bluish-white porcelain decorated with a blue, green and orange coat of arms and slightly raised white scrolls. When the same vases were sold again in the 1950s, they were described as Chinese export porcelain because experts had learned that in the mid-1700s the Lowestoft factory was making early blue-and-white English Delft souvenirs of regional interest, not porcelain like the vases. Researchers also had learned that porcelain made in China in the 18th century was being exported to England and that some had made its way to Lowestoft. But the Chinese porcelain exported to the West back then, although very good, was not the top-quality porcelain made in China for wealthy Chinese families. Some of the export pieces were plain, Chinese porcelain with added new decorations like coats-of-arms or pictures of ships. But there were also other problems with the pair of vases. The vases were not Chinese at all; they actually were copies made by Jacob Petit (1796-1868), who opened a shop in Paris in 1863. Painted raised white scrolls are the clue to identifying Petits copies of Chinese export porcelain. Petit also made copies of Sevres, Meissen, English dinnerware and more. So be careful when looking for information about Chinese export or Lowestoft porcelain. Information in old books is not accurate. And often, information online is from old books. Present-day auction-house descriptions and information in recent publications usually are accurate. Jacob Petit copies of Chinese export porcelain are collected today. A single one of his vases is worth about $800. Q: My mother would like to know what her bound volume of Frank Leslies Illustrated Newspaper is worth. The spine is marked Vol. 1, and the book includes issues dated from Dec. 15, 1855, to May 31, 1856. The newspaper pages are large, about 12 by 16 inches. A: Bound volumes of Frank Leslies illustrated weekly, the first one published in the United States, often show up at shows and can be found for sale online. Leslie (1821-1880) was born in England and immigrated to the United States in 1848. He was an engraver and illustrator before he became a publisher, and his many publications are wanted by collectors not only for their historical value, KOVEL: ANTIQUES s w n c w P t terryKOVELnews@floridaweekly.com

but also for their wood engravings and early photographs. The price your volume could sell for depends on condition of the binding and of the newspapers themselves. We have seen early volumes sell for $50 to $200. Q: I have had an old table cigarette lighter for about 30 years. It was old when I got it. It appears to be silverplate, but its heavy. Its in the shape of a cornucopia, with the lighter at the top of the basket. Theres no mark on it. Can you identify and price it? A: The Evans Case Co. of North Attleborough, Mass., made an unmarked silver-plated cornucopia table lighter like the one you describe. Evans was in business from 1922 to 1960, but table lighters were at their height of popularity in the 1930s and s. Thats probably when yours was made. Other silver-tone cornucopia table lighters were made in Japan after World War II, but theyre marked Made in Occupied Japan. The irony is that both the Evans and Occupied Japan lighters sell for about $50 today. Q: My grandmother gave me her antique water basin, a very large pitcher and a smaller, matching water pitcher. She said the smaller pitcher was for hot water. The wash-basin set was given to her as a wedding gift in 1907. All three pieces are plain white. On the bottom, each piece is marked Yale in gold on a banner. Since this set is a family heirloom, it will not be sold, but I would like to know the history of the company. A: Wash sets such as yours were used in the days before indoor plumbing. The large pitcher was used to pour water into the basin for washing, and the smaller pitcher was used when brushing teeth. The Yale mark was one of several marks used between 1882 and 1925 by the Potters Co-Operative Co. of East Liverpool, Ohio. The company made hotel ware, white ware and some decorated ware. The name of the company became Dresden Pottery Co. in 1925. It went out of business in 1927. Your set was made between 1882 and 1907. Tip: If you have stored a quilt, take it out twice a year and refold it in half, if you had it in thirds before. This practice will prevent crease lines.

CONTRACT BRIDGE Eliminating the luck factor BY STEVE BECKERTheres nothing thrilling about making a contract thats easy to make regardless of how the opponents cards are divided. The real thrill for declarer comes when the missing cards are stacked against him and he finds a way to succeed anyhow. Take this case where South is in four hearts and West leads a club. Lets say declarer ruffs the club lead in dummy, plays a trump to the ace, cashes the ace of diamonds, ruffs another club and then finesses the jack of diamonds. West wins and shifts to the queen of spades, and South goes down one, losing a diamond and three spades. Declarer might complain about his bad luck in finding West with the queen of diamonds and East with the ace of spades, but this does not alter the fact that South can and should make the contract by adopting a more cautious approach to the play. Instead of relying solely on the 3-to-1 odds that either the diamond queen or the spade ace is favorably located, he should rely on a different approach that makes the contract foolproof. To assure limiting his losses to no more than three tricks, declarer should discard a diamond from dummy on the opening club lead! This play has everything to gain and nothing to lose. In the actual case, East wins the club with the ace but is helpless. Lets say he returns a diamond. South wins with the ace, cashes the ace of trumps and king of diamonds and then leads the eight of diamonds. If West follows low, declarer discards a spade from dummy, not caring one iota whether East wins the trick or not. If East wins with the queen, South cannot lose more than one spade trick; if East doesnt win with the queen, declarer cannot lose more than two spade tricks. If West covers the eight of diamonds with the queen, South ruffs in dummy and later discards a spade from dummy on the nine of diamonds. One way or the other, by playing in the prescribed fashion South is sure to make at least 10 tricks.

VINOThrill of the grill requires care in picking right wineOne of the challenges of grilling is figuring out what wine will work with the finished product. Whether youre cooking up a big, brawny steak or something more delicate such as chicken, seafood or veggies, the wine needs to complement the smoky char flavors imparted to the food by grilling. I find it easier to pair wines with the foods grilled, rather than picking a wine then trying to decide which dish would go best with it. Its harder to adjust the flavors of grilled items, so its best to start with those and find a wine to complement them. To go with grilled red meat, you need a wine that will stand up to the big flavors without overwhelming them. Cabernet is a classic choice, as the tannic structure works with the smokiness of the meat as well as the proteins and fat. I recently tasted La Vite Lucente 2009, a super Tuscan produced by Tenuta Luce Della Vite in Italy. A blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and sangiovese, its smooth and balanced with big fruit flavors. A smooth, aged chianti riserva, made from sangiovese, would also work. When you smoke food, you introduce more flavors in the rub or sauce, as well as a greater amount of smoke. You need a bigger red wine here with some spice and oak to allow the flavors of the meat and the wine to balance. Either a shiraz or zinfandel make a good choice here. William Hardy Shiraz has enough depth of flavor to go well with smoked meats and even heavier barbecue sauces. Barbecue sauce flavors pose the biggest challenges when it comes to wine. Tomato and vinegar flavors are hard to pair with wine, and heavy sauces are even more difficult. With lighter sauces, stick to zinfandel and shiraz. With heavier sauces, skip the wine and stock up on a well-chilled, hearty beer. If youre grilling seafood, chicken or vegetables, a dry ros lets you drink a chilled wine, but has some of the berry flavors and structure similar to a red wine, which goes well with the smoky flavors. One of my favorites is made by Tablas Creek Vineyard, a cooperative project of wine importer Robert Haas and Chateau de Beaucastel, the famous Rhone wine producer. White wines are more traditional matches for seafood and chicken. A California sauvignon blanc is well suited here because it will not have the grapefruit notes that other New World wines (think New Zealand here especially) tend to have. Waterstone Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley is crisp enough to balance with the stronger grill flavors. For those who are confirmed red drinkers, look toward a lighter-bodied pinot noir from Oregon. The Ponzi Pinot Noir is light enough to enjoy chilled but has enough tannins and structure to complement many seafoods or grilled vegetable dishes.Wine Picks of the Week La Vite Lucente 2009 ($30): This one has big, mouth-filling flavors of dark cherry and plum, with a touch of chocolate. Good structure with enough balanced acid to stand up to grilled meats. Marchese di Frescobaldi Nippozano Riserva Chianti Rufina 2009 ($20): Well suited for grilled meats, this one has aromas and flavors of black cherry, berries and violets. Its full-bodied, with complex layers of fruit, acid and a slight mineral finish. Tablas Creek Ros Patelin de Tablas Paso Robles 2012 ($20): This Rhone-style ros is made with grenache, mourvedre and cunoise grapes. Clean, refreshing aromas of cherry and berries add to the stone-fruit flavors on the palate, ending with a structured balanced finish with a light spice. Two Hands Bellas Garden 2010 ($75): From the aroma to the palate and on to the finish, complex flavors of black cherry and plum mix with pepper and spice. The complex finish goes on for a long time. Balanced and supple, its well structured with acid for those big flavors. Waterstone Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2012 ($18): Mostly sauvignon blanc with 18 percent semillon, a classic Bordeaux blend. Flowery citrus aromas lead to lemon and tangerine on the palate, with crisp acidity and a touch of oak (90 days in used French oak barrels) for a lingering finish. William Hardy Shiraz Australia 2011 ($20): Made by Hardys of Australia, this new label has dark fruit aromas and flavors of blueberry and plum, followed by blackberries and spice, with a touch of oak as well. Ends with a satisfying long finish.

Craving a certain cuisine? Theres an app for thatNara, an innovative restaurant app, is now operational in Southwest Florida. Available for iPhone and iPad (an Android version is coming), Nara puts a personal concierge in your pocket, says Thomas Copeman, CEO and founder of the free app. Download it, take a short quiz at signup or simply press the thumb up or thumb down on specific restaurants, and the app will help tailor restaurant recommendations to your tastes. It can also show you a broad selection of restaurants by cuisine, price and neighborhood. It lets you make reservations on Open Table and order delivery from grubHub. You can use it in your own neighborhood or across the country. There are comments from other diners to help you figure out if a place might be a good match for you, and a pin list to which you can add places you want to try in the future. You shouldnt be spending your free time trying to figure out what to do with your free time, Mr. Copeman says. Tell us what you like and well do the work for you so you can stay in the real world. We believe your time should be spent experiencing real things instead of searching for them. You can find Nara (which means happy in Greek) in the iTunes store.Say ciao to Tony SopranoAldos Ristorante Italiano & Bar says so long to Tony Soprano with a tribute to the late James Gandolfini on Thursday, June 27. From 4-10 p.m. diners can tuck into allyou-can-eat spaghetti and meatballs while scenes from The Sopranos starring Mr. Gandolfini, who died June 19 of a heart attack while vacationing in Italy, play on the TV.

Its at the northwest corner of Airport-Pulling and Vanderbilt Beach roads in North Naples. Check the markets Facebook page for more information about vendors, special events and promotional activities.Love Potions and moreIts a good thing Norman Love named his company Norman Love Confections, rather than Norman Love Chocolates, because this creative, ever-changing enterprise has become so much more than world-class truffles and pastries. Mr. Love and his team of bakers and confectioners challenge themselves to stay stimulated and creative, and we, their customers, are the happy beneficiaries. Two new products coming this fall are: Love Potions: Coming in September, this line pairs the companys (hot) sipping chocolate with six test tubes of sugar in flavors such as jalapeno and cayenne pepper (called Dragon Fire), instant espresso (Elixir of Life) and red fruits such as acai, pomegranate and raspberry (Eternal Youth). Each box comes with instructions on mixing the sugars with the chocolate for interesting new taste experiences. Fall in Love: Even though the weather wont feel like it yet, youll be able to get a taste of fall through a new line of chocolates due out in September and October in flavors including maples cookie, pumpkin cheesecake and apple crisp. The Norman Love Confections Chocolate Salon in Naples is at 3747 Tamiami Trail N. Call 687-725.Short subjects Bellini on Fifth Italian Ristorante now offers a summer menu and a summer classics menu starting at 4 p.m. Among the offerings are spinach salad, caprese salad and linguini with clam sauce.
